So I’m going to try something new going forward, or at least experiment with it. I have been updating my twitter a lot, but I think every day I’m going to keep a thread like this going where I just give you updates with time-stamps. I know a lot of people come looking here for regular updates, but didn’t know how to handle it without transcribing every conversation in the house. If nothing is interesting, I’ll throw up update in every 10-15 minutes or so (as long as I’m home), but if something gets exciting I’ll obviously update more.
Note, this will be in addition to my typical morning recaps/observations/opinions.
Flashback to any time using the live feed flashback feature.
(all times are pst/bbt)
2:40pm – Nothing going on in the house. Helen messing with her hair while others relaxing. Still waiting for the veto competition to begin.
2:55pm – Elissa doing stretching/reading, others napping.
3:05pm – Helen and Elissa in the cockpit chatting, Aaryn running a bath in the HoH room. Helen is strategizing about possibly making another deal with Aaryn if she uses the veto (if she wins). She’ll also offer the deal to Spencer. They’re going to wait until after veto to see who wins though. Helen is feeling pretty confident about the votes either way, and even tried to compare notes with Elissa. Both were told Elissa is the target (she’s not)
3:10pm – Elissa thinks it’s going to be an athletic competition today. Both are pretty antsy about getting it started, but Elissa decides to take a nap.
4:25pm – Took a break for dinner (found a great local sub shop!). McCrae, Helen and Spencer are in the cockpit chatting about the potential competitions tonight. Everyone else still sleeping.
4:45pm – Spencer and McCrae in the cockpit, Helen and Andy in the kitchen. No veto yet, it may not happen for another hour+
4:52pm – Big Brother comes over the speaker – “Houseguests: Remember to enjoy yourselves today. These are the good ole days”. Spencer and Andy joke about how GinaMarie is going to panic over that wondering what it means.
4:57pm – McCrae misses the song that is played over the fish during the live feeds. He is crazy, the song drives me nuts!!
5:20pm – Helen joins Andy, McCrae and Spencer in the cockpit to speculate on the announcement by Big Brother. She thinks former houseguests will come back for the veto competition.
5:50pm – Amanda is awake, but nothing new. Still just a bunch of general chatter.
6:05pm – Amanda called to DR, veto competition possibly soon
6:12pm – Feeds down for trivia, veto competition finally!
7:00pm – Still undergoing veto competition
7:30pm – Feeds still on trivia
8:00pm – Feeds still on trivia, veto competition still underway
8:30pm – Feeds still down
8:45pm – The feed music is starting to drive me nuts. Still doing PoV
8:48pm – Feeds back… Elissa won PoV!
8:52pm – Spencer confirms it was the OTEV competition
9:00pm – Houseguests cleaning up after the competition, but Amanda is confirming she is pushing for Helen to go home this week. She is going to blindside Helen, but Andy doesn’t seem very comfortable with this. He is very sad, and possibly the person who is most likely to flip this week in Helen’s favor.
9:05pm – Spencer and McCrae are in the storage room talking about the situation. He is accepting he’ll be going up as the replacement but feels safe so far. Apparently this will be the record for amount of times someone was on the block in a season (according to Spencer – didn’t verify).
9:25pm – GinaMarie and Helen are chatting in the cockpit. Helen is going to resort to the ‘guys alliance’ thing where the longer Spencer remains in the house, the bigger the chance the guys will come together. Who knows, with this cast it could work, but doubtful
9:40pm – Spencer tells the HoH room that Elissa told him she had conversations with God, and was told that Nick is Dan’s cousin.
9:50pm – Helen and Elissa are talking in the kitchen. Helen trusts McCrae and Andy (because of their ‘secret alliance’), so it’s going to be quite the surprise when she finds out. The big question is whether or not she’ll find out before Thursday.
With that, I am off to bed. I will recap in the morning. Hopefully you enjoyed my trial run at random updates throughout the day.
