Good morning BB Junkies. I know yesterday was deflating and we wanted something different to happen. As I said yesterday, I don’t know what the better move was for Cliffs game but I know the move I wanted to see him make. I still don’t think lying to Christie to get her to use her power would have been a good move. However, I agree with the people who think he should’ve tried to get a deal from her and have her use the power. I just don’t know it was possible. I’m going to give Cliff points for being willing and trying to make a move no one else seemed willing to make but he’ll lose points for poor execution. Oh well, yesterday is over so it’s time to move on from here.
Honestly, yesterday was kind of boring for me even with game talk happening. Maybe it wasn’t and it’s just me because I get bored when I feel like I’m watching people go through the motions but already know how the week will end. Bella is one of the worst players I’ve ever seen but I will give her credit for trying to come up with a plan. The things she was coming up with in an attempt to stay were terrible but I appreciated the effort. I think Bella has a nasty personality and I feel the same way about Sis (and others) but I do try to remember how young they both are. I’m not making excuses for either of them or anyone’s behavior in this house. I simply think there’s a chance they both may be very different people when they’re in their thirties than they are at this stage in their life. I hope most of these people will watch some clips of feeds when they leave and speed up the maturity process.
Cliffs group thought he should’ve made Christie use her power and I’ve already said I agree. Nick, Nicole and Sam all irritated me a little though. None of them were nearly as vocal about this before the veto ceremony as they were after. It’s obvious Cliff wasn’t going to make a deal and then stab Christie in the back but why didn’t they push him to at least get her to use the power? They all seemed to have great insight and comments AFTER the veto ceremony.
Cliff told Nick and Bella he was sorry but felt he didn’t have a choice. He told them he wasn’t going to ignore them or isolate them because of the situation. He did make an effort to mingle with the 6 shooters a llittle bit. Sam did the same because he was worried he was becoming a bigger target because of his association with Nick and Bella. (Sam is a bigger target because he won 2 vetos he didn’t need to win)
Sam talked to Sis about being lumped in with decisions Nick and Bella have made in the game. Even though Sis entertains me about as much as staring at the refrigerator, I have enjoyed some of her talks will Sam in the past. It’s really because of Sam and how honest he is about personal things. He just seems very blunt but not as if he’s trying to be mean. In a recent conversation, Sam asked Sis if she thought Jack would take her to the end. Sis said “yes, because he thinks he can beat me.” Sam said “he can.” Sis told him”f*ck you.” He told her not to be naive and look at her track record with comps and her social skills. (Sam can be very funny when he isn’t trying to be)
Sam wanted to talk to Christie and let her know he didn’t have anything to do with what Nick was doing. (Christie knows Nick was trying to get Cliff to lie to her about the veto meeting)
Jackson continued to treat HollyBeth badly and Christie was beginning to get tired of him. She said he needed to stop being nasty to everyone. She thinks it’s from slop but Jess said he’s always been like that.
Bellas plan was to talk to Jackson and HollyBeth and see if they would flip their votes. Nick told her it wouldn’t work. They talked to Nicole and patched things up with her. Nick finally admitted he should’ve believed Nicole but didn’t know what to do with camp come back still in play. He basically confirmed, without saying it, what we already thought. Deep down, he knew what was going on but he didn’t want to admit it to himself so he went the safe route when he was HOH. He assured Nicole he wouldn’t put her up again if he won but acknowledged that he had told her that the last time. Nicole told them she loved them but said “I don’t know why.” I don’t really think she does, she’s just smart enough to know she doesn’t have anywhere else to go, so good for you Nicole. Bella even told Nicole she hoped she won and would be rooting for her. (She’s assuming Nick will be leaving right behind her)
Nick tried hard the night before to get a different outcome for Bella but even the way he communicates with people makes him come off as untrustworthy. I’m not saying the 6 don’t invent their own reasons to turn on people because they do. The reality is, Nick didn’t betrayed them, they betrayed Nick but they remember it quite differently. I’m just saying Nick has this frantic, rambling way of speaking and he comes off looking like a liar even when he’s telling the truth. Nick and Bella rehashed the decisions they’d made in the game and discussed how they got to where they are now. They had some of it right and some of it wrong but they mostly blamed themselves, as they should.
Bella is a different story but the biggest mistake Nick made is the same mistake many of them are making. He continued to trust Christie even when he stopped trusting the jakoffs. He refused to see her as a true part of the 6 and I can’t think of one of the outsiders who hasn’t done that or isn’t still doing it. For whatever reason, they trust this woman and all the bullshit she says. (For now) Nick may have finally woken up and realized what was going on because Christie knew about his plan for Cliff to lie and put one of the sixshooters. He said he only told Sis and Kat but it got out and everyone knew.
Sam continued to stress over people thinking he was a part of Nicks plan and wanted to call a house meeting. Christie and Kat suggested he wait until the next day. (Not only has Christie recently claimed the title of the best BB player ever, she also claims she’s a super fan) This is only relevant because while they were talking about the potential house meeting, Kat suggested they use the scene from Dan’s funeral. Christie asked “what’s that” and said “we can’t quote movies.” Kat had to explain that it’s an iconic BB moment. Of course, Christie said she knew that, she thought Kat said “dance funeral.” (Puulease!)
Sam had his meeting and informed everyone he had nothing to do with Nicks plan. Nick backed him up and Christie told him no one was saying they thought he did. Kat had to be a little paranoid over it coming out how she’s been playing both sides. Jack said he respected Nick and the move he was trying to make. Christie said it was a good plan and said “it is, I’m a superfan, so I know.” Everyone hugged and that was pretty much it. (Sam had a meeting to draw more attention to himself when he wants the opposite) The meeting didn’t change anything and they still want Sam out.
Jack cracked Sis’s back and offered to do Jessicas. Jess reminded him he had done hers yesterday and he actually said “you’ve got a lot of real estate.”
Nick talked about who he would put up if he won HOH and said maybe Christie to flush the power or maybe Jack and Holly. He said he’d never put up Jackson or Sis. Along with his big mouth, Nicks game could end simply because he has a crush on Sis. Was I just saying he was starting to figure things out? Nevermind…
Cliff and Nicole went over the potential votes again. They talked about Nick and Jackson being mean to Kat. Nicole isn’t buying why the 6 shooters kept her in the game. She would like the vote to flip this week but she’s too afraid to approach Kat and Jess with it because she doesn’t want to get herself in the same situation as before. She knows Jack needs to go but that doesn’t mean she can do anything about it.
There was an incident a couple of nights ago that came up on the feeds again yesterday. While talking about Bella, someone said something about pudding and Jack chimed in with “rice pudding.” Tommy immediately said “slop pudding.” The conversation yesterday with Christie, Tommy and Jess was recapping the one from the night before. She said she didn’t think about it until it was pointed out to her. (I’m assuming she means the DR) Tommy acted like he just got the potential insult in that very moment, when Christie was talking. If that’s the case, why did he immediately correct what Jack was saying the night before? Maybe I’m wrong but this entire conversation felt very contrived. I felt like I was watching someone who had been spoken to in the DR and was setting up a conversation to have the opportunity to fix it. I really don’t know and that’s just my take on it.
I’m sorry if I left out anything important. Monday is my busiest work day so I may have missed some things. You can always read Steves threads from yesterday to get the stuff I may have missed.
Have a great Tuesday.
