As I posted in my morning thread, I planned on doing a live feed update post today, but that was hard to do considering the Big Brother feeds were down for most of the afternoon. Seeing as Austin mentioned his position in the HoH competition tonight, I assume they not only went through the live show practice, but also got their order for how they’ll handle the HoH competition tonight.
From the pictures of them practicing last night, it is the ‘carnival game’ style where they’ll be rolling a ball down a ramp and flicking it up into some sort of bucket. My guess, into random score buckets. These games are almost always luck-based, so the HoH can literally go to almost anyone playing tonight. I say ‘almost’ simply because as random as those games are, there are some people who absolutely blow it and end up getting 0’s. So, to re-phrase, anyone close enough to get a score has a pretty equal shot at winning.
On a semi-related note about the live show, I have some news….
CBS is hooking me up with tickets to the live eviction show on July 30th!
Because they’re awesome, they will also be flying me down to LA and putting me up in a hotel for two nights. However, two problems…
a) I have never flown before and I am getting nervous even thinking about it now
b) I will have nobody to cover the live show because they won’t allow me to live tweet or blog.
Now, anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely hate missing live blogging on Thursday nights. I have done it while sick, and I skipped out on tickets to a comedy show last year, and I usually plan my vacations around Thursday nights.
So, I’m in a bind. I don’t have any backup writers, I don’t want to miss blogging, but I also don’t want to miss the once in a lifetime opportunity to be 10 feet away from Julie Chen. I will be looking for a backup writer to handle that 3 day stretch, so if you know anyone who obsessively watches the feeds and knows WordPress real well, have them contact me. I have no money, so I won’t be able to pay, but if they do a good enough job, I may be able to give them a little by the end of the summer (depending on how my donations do).
note – after re-reading my post, I can tell how nervous I am based on the amount of times I wrote ‘so’. Ugh.
See you in 3 hours for the live show!
