This recap covers from noon Friday to noon Saturday - BB time
Can I say first off how relaxing it is to turn on my live feeds to see the vortex sweetly and quietly playing the old BB music. I have visions of Karen and Nicole and Kurt and Brittany on the credits, grabbing their bags and headed out to the Chenbot. Personally, I'm just glad that when the vortex comes on unexpectedly, the non-feed watchers who occupy my house don't actually jump right out of their chairs. But alas, I bore of the vortex and the nostalgia the music brings with it. Bring on the food competition!
When we return, Zach is pouring peroxide on his FCBB (food comp boo boo) and said he just enjoyed this competition totally. Sounds like some sort of guitar whomping competition. Eric enjoyed taking swings. Dick, Daniele and Dustin are on slop. Dick had to make an on-the-spot decision about a slop pass and gave it to Jen. Meanwhile, Daniele wants to go to sequester for a limited monitored phone call and to spend her birthday alone because she hates these people. Sounds thrilling. She can't be in this house anymore. Say it with me everyone. It's so frustraaaaaaatinggggggggg. Good job. Meanwhile, Dick decides he should destroy Jameka's bible. Daniele chimes in that "they'll know it's you". Apple doesn't fall far, huh? A little asthma med discussion erupts - apparently Eric is still having trouble breathing after the food comp. Then we get a beautiful view of Jen in something she loves almost as much as her unitard - a silver wig and a red boa. She's right at home. They wore costumes during the competition, but they weren't allowed to keep them. The silver wig goes away. Jen is sad.
I'm going to be Heidi Fleiss for Halloween! Yippee!
And then there's Amber. She was crying to God in the HOH (because God hangs out in the HOH ya know). She was asking that if she gets HOH (yeah, that will happen) she wants one of her pictures to be replaced with a picture for Jameka. She's *sob* such a good person and she's *sob* sorry she did drugs but *sob* she had soooo much to take care of. She wants so bad to be a nurse
so she can steal more drugs. Please *sob* God, let me be a nurse someday.
Amber, Jess and Eric have a discussion on what should be said during the nomination ceremony. Basically Jess wanted some snark. And since her audience was Eric and Amber, there was no snark to be had. Jess is putting up Dick and Daniele and needs to say something that won't actually come back to bite her in the ass. (Don't ask Zach, Jess, he may want to actually bite your ass).
Jess is planning a slumber party in the HOH tonight for the girlies of the group. No, Dustin, that doesn't include you-hoooo. Jess says she wants to invite Daniele because she might be here next week and she wants to hang with her. Let's see how Jess feels after the nominations!
But Dustin does have great makeup tips! Booya - he's invited!
4:35 BB time and Jess is called to the Diary room and the houseguests are on an outside lockdown. Dah-dah-dahhhhhhhh. Time to gaze at the wall of houseguests and do the slow key pull all for the well known fact that Donato Squared is going on the block. Jess was nervous - she had a little pow-wow with Jensa in the HOH beforehand but she wants to get this overwith to bring on the wine and the slumber party.
Wow, I've never really been this close!
During the lockdown, Amber is crying in the hammock because her cry meter was on low. She was crying with Dustin about what kind of person she is and he was telling her not to let Dick get to her - he's an abuser and likes to be abused. And with that YAY Dustin gets new protein shake flavors! He's so excited. Whew - the attention span of a gnat. Back to Amber and how much she can't wait to see her daughter. She applied only because her sister told her to and that she knows squat about the game. Conversation turns to the food competition and GOD told her which ones to pick. He didn't tell her to pick the slop pass - he didn't have a chance. I seriously think Amber needs to go back to meth. It sounds like she might have had a clearer mind back then.
Hello Boogie? After Big Brother, can I have a job at Dolce?
When we return from the nomination vortex, Dani & Dick are making slop look interesting and Dick complains that they get almost-expired stuff in the storage room - like those things that accidentally got cut with a box cutter, yet put on the shelf. Thanks Mr. Piggly Wiggly 2007. Dick's surprisingly mellow and muses about actually taking a shower today. Meanwhile back at the ranch, Eric is ridiculously cocky saying that even if someone loses POV and Dick or Dani come off, any one of them can be put up without issue. That's bad foreshadowing Eric. Never underestimate the power of the flip flop. Eric just doesn't know when to shut UP. Dick and Dani are predicting that the POV competition will be when you get stuff like phone calls and money. He wants to take everything so that he loses points and Dani gets points so she wins. There's one little caveat here D-squared.....there's four other people who play! You're only 2 colors on the 6 sided rubics cube. We're treated to vortex a few times as both D&D are disussing what the games could be and the HOH contingent is discussing what happened in previous games when stuff broke. Dick has decided to hide stuff and every time he mentions it, I'm thrust down the blue hole of hell. Dick complains that Jess never cleans and Jameka never folds towels and that's he's suspicious when she does because it could mean eavesdropping. Mmmmmm Hmmmm. That's clever. Dick also decides that Dustin is the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland and Jen's the mean flower. What does that make Dick, TweedleDick?
The HOH crew discusses if Dick or Dani get off the block using a veto, then Dustin should be put up. Hey Dustin, thanks for earning a big fat red check mark - task completed - for amERICa's player! Meanwhile, Dustin ends up having a heart to cold heart talk with Dani. She whines incessently about how her father isn't her and she's not responsible for his actions. Dustin tells her not to exclude herself from the group. He tries to sweetly bully her into joining their group and ridding herself of Daddy Dearest. She knows better and sees through the transparency of the Queen of Hearts. A cluster of apologies occur and they move on to Dani claiming to throw up in her mouth. Can someone please explain to me where this little gem of a cliche came from? It's so disgusting and stupid. We need a better cliche - who makes this stuff up anyway??
In the HOH tonight, Amber tries to convince Jessica that it's absolutely obvious that Eric and Jen are in an alliance and that Dustin's part of it too - mainly because Eric is being civil to Jen. Jameka and Amber are becoming suspicious of Dustin. The slumber party apparently didn't happen - they want to wait until after the POV. Jess says sleeping in the HOH room is like "sleeping on a cloud". Amber ponders the deep, thought-provoking question "where should I sleep - should I sleep in the little room? I want to sleep in Dustin's bed". Oh how I wish my decisions were this tough. She decides on the little room. The hamsters are all finally tucked in by 5:00 a.m.
3˝ hours is plenty of time to sleep, so our favorite gonging voice pleads "time to get up houseguests". Dustin briefly gets up for some water and shuffles back to bed, only to be awoken by Dick with a barrage of clanging pots and pans. I didn't realize that Dick was still in preschool. He proceeds to berate Dustin with a string of mother-effers and queenie references and lots of unmentionables. Apparently, he has chosen to make the life of Dustin not resemble the life of Reilly and make his life extremely difficult by making him the TOTD (target of the day). As the TOTD, Dustin has to hear about his Barbados trip, his money, how he's screwed Jameka and other various ramblings including the famous gonnorhea heard round the world. But Dustin feigns deafness and stays under the covers. Since Dick didn't get a rise out of Dustin (in any way, shape or form), he moves on to Amber spewing hatred toward her, her daughter and the lovely people at Caesar's Palace Las Vegas not to mention quite a few unmentionables that Amber herself mentioned in prior weeks but my fingers would bleed if I typed it out. Dick actually does have one nice bone in his body, nicely mentioning to Zach that he'll warn him of any other rants he may have so Zach can escape the wrath of the pots and pans. Don't ever let me hear you say Dick's not compassionate. He did get a warning from the DR for "sexually explicit verbal abuse". That's a proud Daddy moment, huh?
I don't want to work, I just want to bang on my pots all day
Basically the morning is a looneyfest of Dick's ramblings stating he'll do this until he leaves the house. Maybe that will be Thursday. Then again, Dick did apologize to Jen the other day, so stranger things have happened. They await the POV and I await my advil's usefulness - those pots and pans made my head ring. POV players are Dick, Daniele, Jess, Dustin (picked by Dick - ironic?), Zach and Jameka. amERICa gets to host.
In case you were wondering:
- Zach knows how to do a tracheotomy
- Jen knows that 4 + 2 1/4 = 6 1/4. I'm shocked
- Amber thinks 6 + 6 = 13. I'm not shocked
- Jen, Zach and Dustin LOVE halloween
- Jess' brother kicks camel spiders for fun
- Eric loved Paradise Hotel (I bet he had a crush on Toni - who wants to bet me $10??)
- Jess needs immodium. She borrowed it from Eric (I hope she doesn't give it back)
- Eric never watched (or purchased) porn. Liar! Booyah!
- Dick vows to hide the croquet mallets before anyone else can. He doesn't.
- Amber's trying not to eat after 9:00 p.m. I wish she'd work on not crying after noon.
- The BB house has ants. Everywhere. Including the microwave. Yuck
Thanks Waywyrd and Lildago for the awesome screencaps!
