"All About Adria: Days
- August 14
Last time, a battle between camps turned into a
free-for-all when HOH Adria (possibly upon suggestion
from twin sister Natalie) put Marvin back on the block
for a third time. Even more shocking was the surprise
nomination of Will alongside him. Is this the beginning
of an all-out war between the twins and... well,
We pick up at day 43,
where "things don't look good for your superhero
Marvin." He starts outing alliances such as the twins
and Drew & Diane, thinking about whose leg he's gonna
have to hump in order to stay in this game.
Meanwhile Nakomis vents
to Karen and Diane that two good people are up on the
block via Adria's actions. Karen: "Those kind of actions
under this roof do not buy you too much time." Well, not
too much time with Will, who says he does not mean to be
passive-aggressive when Adria comes up, but... to put it
shortly, he was, to the point of bringing Holly's
eviction into the thick of things (Holly's like the
hidden character now). You see, it's when a woman (or in
this case, a gay man) takes control of the situation.
What happens when a man takes control of the situation?
I have absolutely no idea.
Adria talks to Will
about who might've had the idea to put him up. "If she
was going to put me on the block as a 'pawn', you'd
think that she would've at least come to me before, but
that's not what she's about. Her true colors are flying
high." Will ends with a warning: "If I am still in this
house and I walk away with the HOH, Adria, watch your
back, bitches." Have to snap on that one. *Snaps*
Will goes to the girls
with his news, and Diane adds some relatable data, as
she tells him that she would do what Will thinks Adria
is doing with Natalie. Nakomis goes to the HOH room with
one question for Adria: "Why Will?" Long answer short:
safety net. Long rebuttal short: Jennifer makes it into
a twin issue again. Adria's true motive for the
nominations are revealed in the Diary Room: "I've found
out where the divisions are."
Diane says that a
psychic told her that she'd meet Drew... or at least
someone like him. Seems like we've gotten past the
"cuddle" stage of their relationship. Marvin line of the
night: "Too much smackin'; let's get some tongue!"
That night, Marvin
complains that he has nobody to damn talk to....
Again... calling Adria's decision a weak one. "You can
find stronger people to split up other than the gay dude
and the black dude." Adria calls playing the "whupped
minority" card a low blow, but even so, something tells
me that these nominations are not going to hold. But
wait! There's more! Marvin plays magic card, "Biblethumper."
This duel will have to
continue on the next day, as Drew shaves, and Will talks
about Drew... shaving. "The man shaves more than any
human I've met." We get him shaving, shaving, shaving,
and plucking. How metro of him. But Diane digs it... "I
can't believe you shave... everything!"
Excuse me while I laugh
my ass off. *laughs his ass off*
Okay, I should be good
now. Good thing, because next, it's picking time for
Veto: Adria picks Drew, Will picks Diane, and Marvin
calls out Mr. 120 Percent, Cowboy. Also known as "Mo."
You know, eeny meeny miney mo? And guess what, folks,
it's Christmas!... In August!
VETO COMPETITION: A
Very Veto Christmas
Story time! Here's
Natalie: "T'was the day of the veto and all through the
yard, the houseguests were worried that to win would be
hard. Under the tree are gifts wrapped in pairs. Each
gift contains a number of vetoes. The object is to end
up with the highest number of vetoes. You will pick
boxes and look on the tag to see how many vetoes you
have won. You must reveal one tag of your choice to the
other players. When it is your turn, you will have the
option to take a gift from under the tree or to steal
from someone else. But there could be a twist. Besides
good luck, here's this to say, merry Christmas to all
and to all a good day."
That story sucked! Tell
me another! Well after seeing the crappiest Old Navy
castoffs known to man, Adria ends up with the most
vetoes in her stocking, so I guess the nominations will
stand. So much for my Spider sense... T'was a rubbish
Wait, wait... A twist!
Bonus stockings, hung by the chimney with at most 10
vetoes. Marvin (12) gets another 10 to move to 22. Diane
loses everything. Will selects a gold gift... an MP3
player! Drew also gets a gold gift... a digital camera!
Michael loses it all, so Adria by default gets the other
10 vetoes to win the challenge.
That night, Natalie
tells Adria that she needs to protect her. Marvin hasn't
been ugly until recently. If she wants Will to be safe
this week, then she will leave the nominations intact
and let the chips fall where they may. If she does, then
she will have a big ol' target on her chest. And
Natalie's. We're back to being the dumb house now.
Adria is open to talking
to Marvin about her upcoming decision. Citing lack of an
ally, Marvin asks why he would even be perceived as a
threat. Adria wants him to start playing the game. Well,
that got the Big Lubinski places, didn't it? Adria
suggest that she be granted amnesty for safety... which
Marvin doesn't do. "My integrity and self-respect mean
more to me than half a million dollars." Adria announces
that anyone who wants the veto is more than welcome to
it, but they have to start playing ball.
Only thing is... no one
wants it. Even more so, the possibility of a tie could
easily put this back in Adria's hands...
and Marvin agree on one thing. Adria's gone next week.
Natalie soon after. "There's always going to have to be
a Jase in this house. Lucky us, now it's her," says
Will. "You hear me talking in there, Hillbilly Girl?"
Yep, she heard ya.
Now it's surprise time:
Movie night at the Big Brother House. I hope they're not
making it. Oh they're not. Good.
LUXURY CHALLENGE: Movie
Night (for a private screening of "Without a Paddle")
Teams of three (Marvin,
Michael, and Karen vs. Jennifer, Adria, and Natalie vs.
Diane, Drew, and Will) must complete a red carpet
puzzle along an alleyway, sit back down, and search for
a golden M&M among a bowl ganked from the Whammy! set.
First to do so goes to the movies Without A Paddle. Team
Cuddlebutts is the first to finish the puzzle and to
find the golden M&M to win the screening.
Diane, Drew, and Will go
to the HOH Room, transformed into a mini-theatre. And
no, Diane, those aren't previews. That's the opening
Paramount ident. Two disclaimers: a) Paramount and CBS
are sister companies, owned by Viacom, and b) I'm such a
Fun and games is over,
and now it's time for the Veto Ceremony. Will says
"adversity breeds character" and says that whatever
happens Thursday, "I'm copasetic for some of the best
friendships I've ever made." Marvin continues the duel
that he and Adria had, electing to put his fate in the
hands of the rest of the houseguests. "You know I love
you. It's been real. It's been fun. But it ain't been
That said, Marvin's wish
is granted, as Thursday, his fellow housemates will
decide both him and Will's fate. Adria elects NOT to
exercise the Power of Veto.
Marvin: "If I'm going,
I'm going out guns blazin', and her ass'll be out here
in a week or two."
Will: "Those bitches are
Again, to Adria...
Stupid move, because either way, you're days are
numbered, and if the survivor gets the keys on
Thursday... God help you.
