Running Amok!" - August 16
We return to the Big
Brother domicile being reminded of how Jennifer broke
her promise in order to protect her friends. Now we
insert some random cursing from Janelle and Rachel
(female dog, incredulous woman, evil temptress, etc
and the Big Brother pot is liberally stirred.
In the Gold room Howie, Rachel, Janelle and Kaysar hash
out the situation and out of the rubble comes Howie as
the voice of reason reminding everyone that they have to
stick to the plan and James will probably still go. If
only Howie had his brain about him last week.
The only other major talk going on is happening between
Ivette and James who are discussing how they can keep
him in the game. Ivette is convinced that James still
has a chance as there are 4 days left until eviction and
James truly believes that Ivette wants to work with him,
at least 40% of the time. Hes convinced that the other
60% of her allegiance belongs to the friendship.
In his attempt to continue campaigning, James meets with
Jennifer privately in the HoH room and he tells her that
the reason he let go of the button in the HoH
competition is because he realized that he was playing
for the wrong reasons. He saw Ivette worked up over
faltering in the challenge and realized that she was
playing for family friends and honor while all he was
playing for was revenge. Jennifer seems somewhat
empathetic but she keeps her cards close to her chest
Later Kaysar meets with Jennifer and after expressing
his aggravation with her change of plans, Jennifer fills
him in on some of the happenings of the house since he
has been gone. She tells him that his alliance flipped
on the original plan to oust James and gunned for Ivette
and that is the reason she can not trust his teammates.
Kaysar picks up a vibe from Jen that all is not kosher
and with that we move to some comic relief.
Howie finally decides to try on his black speedo. He
models it and everyone laughs and cheers. He attempts a
Rockette high kick and falls on his tookas. Everyone
laughs and cheers. For 5 dollars extra, Howie will give
you 2 extra prat falls and a banana cream pie.
Its Happy Happy time! Maggie and Kaysar both have
birthdays this week, and like they did for April, BB and
Kmart provided cakes and gifts for the birthday
buffoons. Kaysar received a 20 gigabyte mp3 player and
Maggie received a Sony PSP. Maggie had no clue what the
PSP was and further let's us know that electronics were
not her thing. I argue that the PSP could have been
better spent on someone else, but what do I matter?
Ivette is now focused on lobbying for James. She tells
her teams that she believes that most of James actions
are solely as a result of him reacting to being put on
the block. She claims that playing the game in an evil
fashion is so tempting that no one can blame him for
slipping to the dark side. If Ivette truly believes this
I want to know what is in that Ghetto juice she is
drinking. However ridiculous her claims are we must
remember that Ivette is talking to a bunch of baboons
and for that reason all she has to do is wave a banana.
Guess what? The baboons have evolved into chimps as they
have now realized that because James has no allies they
may be able to use him as a vote. Well either they
evolved or read our 5 Rules of Big Brother from last
Lets see if you can guess who each competitor picks as
Jennifer picks April.
Rachel picks Howie.
Janelle picks Kaysar.
Veto Competition: Coaster Toss
Just like the houseguests have played in the living
room, Big brother has set up an oversized game of
coaster toss. This time around the target is a 5 tiered
wedding cake like structure. The outermost and largest
tier represented week one all the way to the top tier,
the smallest in the center representing week 5. The
coasters have the faces of the evicted houseguests on
them and matches earn points respective to the week. Did
I mention if no one scores any points that no one would
win veto? It didnt matter anyway.
Here are your scores:
April - 4
Rachel - 6
Kaysar - 3
Jen - 1
Janelle - 5
Howie - 4
And Rachel wins the power of veto!
The only thing left is for Jen to quiz her compatriots
on what to do as she is now considering getting rid of
Kaysar rather than James. In doing so she finds that
Maggie has flipped her script and decided that she can
not play honestly anymore because no one else is. She is
mad at America for sending back the person she evicted
rather than giving her back her sweet Eric. Basically,
everyone agrees that lying is now ok to them even though
it wasnt before. Jen finally isolates each of her
partners and seeks their opinion.
Maggie wants Kaysar gone over James.
Beau wants James to go,
fearing that James is stronger at winning veto
Ivette wants Kaysar
April says Kaysar must
go as he is the leader of the other group.
The votes are in and the
winner is clear. Rachel vetoes herself and James wins!
Kaysar is put up on the block after an annoying speech
by Jen about this being out of respect and that Kaysar
is a leader and threat in this game. Ugh. Well now that
this entire house is full of liars Id like to introduce
you to the game of Big Brother the way its supposed to
be played. You truly can never underestimate the
intelligence of a Big Brother houseguest. Jennifer has
made herself a future target when she was once in total
obscurity, but for now Kaysar and Janelle are the one
who need to be concerned. Who will stay, and who will
go? Tune in Thursday to find out.
