"Stark White and Pitch
Black" - August 23
Welcome to another
predictable episode of big brother. For those of you who
need to be caught up, Kaysar was evicted for the second
time due to the chicanery of Jennifer who was then
quickly evicted herself. In a quiz about household
items, Beau won his first head of household and now has
the duty of making himself a target, I mean making
With the power shifting sides in the house, Hurricane
Howie has quelled. He even half apologized to April for
the insults he had been spewing. Meaning that he
apologized to those that could not defend themselves,
but he did not apologize for what he said about her.
Rachel is steaming over the fact that she got her
question wrong. Fine, Rachel, you buzzed in too early,
but Maggie had a chance to prevent the tie-breaker by
tanking the last question and didnt. You dont see her
crying now do you? (Like Maggie would have ever thought
of such a thing) Anyway, Rachel knows that she and Howie
are prime targets and is committed to playing this game
to the bitter end.
Janelle, Howie and Rachel all discuss how they wont be
able to stand it if any of the friendship win.
Newsflash: barring a major flip, they will have at least
4 jury votes so you are screwed.
Maggie is trying to convince Beau and April at the patio
table that James may be a bigger threat than Rachel and
Howie. Maggie is really just projecting that she is
scared of James and trying to get someone else to do her
dirty work (shocker, I know). Beau still seems
unconvinced, and leaves to prepare the nominations.
Without further ado, this weeks nominees are
Again, what a shock.
But there were some fireworks, Beau referred to Rachel
and not being grey but rather stark white and pitch
black. He feels she is one of the most sinister players
in this house in the way that she plays both sides. As
Ivette puts it, Rachel reacted with her horse face and
Rachel is a total estrogen filled Chihuahua (translate
the curse among yourselves). Additional terms used were
wench, hag and just plain nasty.
This time around there wasnt much discussion pre-veto
outside of James letting us in on the fact that he
doesnt give a crap about anyone left in this house.
wait this is getting redundant)
Now its veto time.
Beau selects James (wait!?! that is actually a bit of a
Howie selects Janelle
Rachel selects April (because she is weak and she has no
allies to choose from)
The houseguests are sequestered and will compete
individually. Anchored to the floor of the pool in the
yard are discs of all the houseguests. Competitors will
have to dive into the pool unhitch a disc and place it
into one of two side by side columns. The goal is to
fill both columns placing secret partners beside each
other in the columns. Fastest time wins. (Moira Quirk
will keep the time) Tweet!
The only thing you need to know is that April did
miserably and Rachel struggled trying to stay in her
So once again, for the 4th time, (arguably the 5th if
you include Sarahs TV), James wins the Golden Power of
Veto. Howie resolves the situation saying that at least
he is losing to the best player in BB history. (Id
still give that title to the evil Dr. Will Kirby, but
competitively I wont argue)
So, will James aim to wreak havoc in the same way Kaysar
and Jen did previously. Hah! Not that dumb. At least not
anymore. James makes it very clear that he is not going
to use the veto because a certain Girl Scout troop would
not be pleased. (I wonder if they make their cookies
from real girl scouts?) As the moment of truth arrives
the show editing sets up the possibility that he might
waver, but James holds steadfast and Howie and Rachel
remain on the block. That means you should tune in
Thursday to see one more couple broken up because when
that happens the apocalypse will begin. Beau and Ivette
will have the honor of being the longest surviving
couple in the game. Theres a real shocker for you. Over
