Good morning, I’ll do the best I can with the feeds from yesterday It’s gotten hot here again and I need to water everything before work. My petunias, coleus, begonias and zinnias seem to be snapping back after the move but a few other things are looking a bit puny. Actually, if anyone has any advice for lavender, please let me know because it isn’t doing very well. I don’t even know how you hurt lavender but somehow, I’ve managed to do it. Arn’t you just supposed to put it in crapy soil, ignore it and water it when it gets really dry? Anyway, Steve isn’t running a gardening blog so I’ll get to yesterday.
Beth=Holly (It’s a secret goal of mine for people to forget her name is Holly by the end of the season. Sure, I try to be objective about the game play but that doesn’t mean I’m never petty)
Heading into the veto ceremony, Sis said she was going to sh*t her pants and Christie and Sis both said they hoped Jackson made the smart move. That’s the first thing I heard when I turned on the feeds yesterday.
Jackson DID make the smart move for his game (maybe not for the feeds) and he left the noms the same. Christie said she wasn’t going to get upset and everything happens for a reason. She’s so predictabe, you can almost do a countdown to her downward spirals and we knew one was coming.
Unrelated but before I forget:
Jacksons roommate is on Vanderpump Rules. He’s the roommate Beth says she knows. His name is Brad and I don’t think he has much of an role on the show. (I cant picture him but I didn’t watch the last season either) We already knew Tommy worked for Alex from BB9, knows Kaitlyn a tiny bit from BB20 and is friends with, or has at least, met Gina Marie from BB15. Beth doesn’t know Corey from BB18 but they’ve been to some of the same parties and know some of the same people.
When you combine that with Beth and Kat loosely knowing each other and Christie and Tommy appearing to be childhood friends and later, Cristie dating his aunt for years, it makes you wonder what the hell is happening. This isn’t the first season someones let it slip that they ‘sort of know someone’ from a prior season but this season feels lazier than usual. They always have someone on the show who lives in LA even tho their intro plays it up as if they live somewhere else. They did the same thing with Tyler last season. He didn’t live in LA but a lifeguard from SC sounded better to casting than a teenage bowler from Ohio.
I think casting doesn’t want us to know they have a few favorite locations and resources to look for house guests and they obviously don’t branch out very much. I mean, how many times do they post on Twitter that you’re running out of time to send in your audition video? (What’s the point? I suppose it isn’t a total waste of time because you could be one of the two people they choose from a real audition) Take Beth for example, she doesn’t live in Wyoming and hasn’t for quite some time. She’s an LA girl and is looking for fame but the Wyoming cowgirl story plays better on the show. It makes it seem as if they’re picking people from all over the country when the pool they’re choosing from is actually pretty small. I know CBS is notoriously cheap with producing this show but has their travel budget been drastically cut in recent years? Do we need to gas up the bus and help them find applicants for BB22? (Nancy, we may have to set up a gas fund for you)
Here’s another random things since I’ve already strayed off course. We’ve been watching Nicks out of control behavior for a couple of months. Sometimes he acts really pervy and other times, he acts like a 14 year old boy whose hormones are raging out of control and doesn’t know how to handle it. I don’t know how many of you have heard his ‘morning poop’ song. This is such teenage boy behavior. Who else thinks poop humor is hilarious or thinks it’s funny to go around humping everything?
Back to the recap before I go too far down the rabbit hole of bizarre conversation:
Sis still wants a power and she started in soon after the veto ceremony. I’m not going to mention every time it was said yesterday but just know, Sis finally started playing the game and this is her signature move. It went all day, all evening and by bedtime, she’d even recruited Nicole to help. Some people online were a bit disappointed in Nicole for participating but I saw someone else comment that Nicole was the still a Saint because she was doing charity work. I like that and that’s how I choose to see it.
After the ceremony, and Beth & Jackson headed back to the bug infested love shack upstairs. Beth started in on Sis again and said Sis is bitter for several reasons but the first is that Beth has beat Sis in every comp. Of all the things Sis is annoyed over, I doubt this one has crossed her mind. (“Her mind,” that made me laugh to myself after I typed it) Sis also thinks she suffers from short term memory loss. Maybe she does and even if she doesn’t, it sounds better than saying “beauty fades but stupid is forever.”
Everyone was checking in with everyone and everyone seemed nervous yesterday. Tommy wanted to talk to Cliff to work something out, Cliff considered taking to Tommy about the same, Jess is on peoples radar and Nick was on his way to becoming the house target.
Christie was saying “it is what it is, I’m not going to get upset. ” Christie told Sis that Nick was a snake and yep, she got very upset. She went off about what a liar Nick was, blamed him for the situation they’re in and said she was going to blow up his game. At first, Christie said she wasn’t going to campaign since she’s against Sis and told Sis and Tommy to work with Cliff after she’s gone. A short time later, she decided to fight to stay but only so she can save people from Nick. (She’s always worrying about others and it’s beautiful to watch….I may cry)
Nick could hear Christie going off about him and got very upset. He isolated himself and told Tommy he didn’t want to be around anyone. He’s hurt and angry. He feels he’s loyal to the people he says he’s loyal to and doesn’t think he deserves the things she’s saying. (He doesn’t)
Jackson told Tommy he had to get out Christie for his game but wanted to work with Tommy and Sis. Tommy said he understood and said they’d put Jackson and Beth in a bad situation and he gets it.
Cliff checked in with Jackson to say he’s heard Jess saying the 5 people left from the original alliance will be coming after Nicole and Cliff. Jackson promised Cliff he was good to his word and it wasn’t true.
Sis was mad at Jackson and wanted to win hoh just so she can go after him. Tommy pointed out that they had put Jackson and Beth in a bad position by leaving them out last week. He tried to get her to understand. (I don’t know if Tommy is really this understanding or if he just wants to make sure Sis doesn’t do something stupid and take him down with her. Either way, it’s impressive) I’m so sick of Sis saying “Nick’s the one who came up with the deal. Why isn’t he otb?” It doesn’t matter who came up with the idea if the rest of them were OK with the deal!!
Christie told Tommy she plans to campaign and remind people she’s a big target. She said she plans to expose Nick playing all sides of the house. She said she’ll stay, win mental comps, make moves and be a target in front of other people. Later, she tells Jess the same thing.
Christie told Sis she planned on outing Nick during Taco Tuesday and said she planned to ask him who his loyalty was with. She wants to ask if it’s Cliff & Nicole, Tommy & Sis or Jackson & Beth. Christie told her Jess said that Nick plants seeds trying to get Nicole to go after Sis and tells Nicole that Sis would go after Nicole. They’re both still convinced he’s throwing comps so he can stay in the middle. Sis told Christie to campaign to stay.
Sis and Nick talked and she questioned him about his behavior. She wanted to know if he was throwing comps and if he was trying to pit Sis and Nicole against each other. First, he denied it but then admitted he had told Nicole about Sis saying she would go after a her. She wanted to know why he would say that when she had trusted him so much. Be said it was weeks ago and she said that didn’t matter. He ended up saying he didn’t know why he said it. (We know why, it’s because he opens his mouth and sh*t just comes out, he can’t stop himself. Maybe Bella rubbed off on him) He said people knew who he was loyal to and he had never strayed from them. He said he couldn’t help he was friendly with both sides and because of Nicole, he was loyal to people on both sides. He assured her, Tommy and Sis were his true F3. Sis questioned him pretty hard and surprisingly, she made good points and completely won the argument. He cried, she told him to stop it and eventually they hugged and made up.
Jackson and Nicole talked and he told her how much he appreciated that she was there for him when no one else wanted to be around him. He said the other group only came back around when they wanted to be safe. He said he wanted to play with people he liked and respected and blah, blah, blah. He said he had talked to Cliff about the 4 of them meeting up later to go over plans moving forward.
Christie continued her rant about Nick on the hammock with Tommy and Sis. She wanted to make sure they understood that Nick was controlling everyone, playing both sides and running the entire game.
Christie spoke with Nick to hash things out. (Ya’ll didn’t really think she was gonna wait for Taco Tuesday, did you?) She said she loved him but she wasn’t happy with the way he played the game and she wouldn’t play that way. (It’s exactly how she’s played) She told him it wasn’t right to promise loyalty to so many people when he couldn’t back it up. She said he’s just going to throw comps and let both sides take each other out. She said it isn’t fair that he seems to be good with both sides of the house. (I could go into more detail because it was a lengthy conversation but I’d just be repeating myself. What she said doesn’t even really matter. This comes down to the fact that Nick is playing Big Brother. He’s playing the game better than Christie and she doesn’t like it) He isn’t even really playing better than her but because she’s such a big target, he’s temporarily getting away with it. People are already onto Nick’s game anyway. She can try to make it sound like hes doing something evil but all she is describing is a floater game. Look, I’m not sticking up for Nick because I can’t stand the little twerp but she kind of left him no choice. They decided to target Nick and Bella very early on, even though they were in the alliance with them. Nick branched out trying to save himself and when they wanted him back, he went crawling back to them. He’s kissed their aases ever since so I don’t know what she thinks is fair game. Maybe a preexisting relationship with someone like Tommy? (Gurl, please. Take a seat)
Meanwhile, Sis was telling Tommy she felt that Jess was putting a lot of ideas in Christies head and that was behind Christies distrust of Nick. He agreed with her. She believes Nick wants to go to the F3 with them now. He said he does too. (I think he’s recently started fearing Nick wants to go to the F2 with Sis tho instead of himself. I won’t be surprised if Tommy cuts Nick loose soon) Tommy said he was ready to make a deal with Cliff. He planned to talk to him and Sis wanted to come. He said no so she told him to include her.
Nicole overheard some of what Christie and Nick were saying. She and Sis told each other it wasn’t true and they weren’t after each other. Sis said she had said Nicole’s name but it was when she didn’t have any other targets. Nicole told Cliff what she overheard too. They think Jess is playing very messy and could get herself in trouble. Nicole told Cliff she thinks Christie is trying to blow up Nicks game to help protect Sis and Tommy and Cliff agreed. They don’t have a problem with Nick’s game and said he’s doing what they’ve been having to do to survive.
Tommy told Jackson he knows he’s had a team around him until now and he understands how it feels to be alone in the game. (Don’t cry broadway boy, you’ve had it good for 2 months)
Cliff and Tommy finally talked and Tommy was giving his pitch for how things seem to be heading towards the couples going after each other. (Jackson& Beth, Cliff & Nicole and Tommy & Sis) He said he doesn’t want it to be that way and Cliff agreed.
I had some Internet issues right around this time and I also know the feeds went out for a while. (Strange timing for me) I haven’t had time this morning to find out if the rest of the conversation was shown or not. Hopefully, we’ll get that cleared up today and I apologize for it.
The feeds went down due to ‘technical difficulties’ but we knew it wasn’t technical difficulties. Well, I actually didn’t know at the time but based on what I’ve been seeng this mornng, the puppy cam still worked so it doesn’t sound like technical issues to me. There were also rumors someone played a tape/clip of Christie talking saying that she and Tommy knew each other from the other side of the wall in the backyard. This does appear to be true because Beth and Jackson were heard on camera asking each other what they heard. I can’t imagine they made out what was said clearly because I think the reaction would have been bigger.
I don’t normally like the wall shoutng to spill info or the banner planes from years ago but I also don’t like people like Tommy and Christie having such a big advantage. I can honestly say I’m a little torn over this one. I don’t want people coming into the house this way but since he’s already been there for 2 months and playing a good game, do I want him leaving for this reason? I don’t think so.
This season isn’t simple and this is just one example for me. Most of us don’t like the cast but the game is very fluid which makes for good BB. Some of us don’t like Jackson but rooted for him this week because we also don’t like Christie. Christie is super annoying and I’d like her to be evicted but she plays the game hard. Sis barely plays the game so why do I want Christie to leave over Sis? It’s only because of the unfairness of her already knowing Tommy. I think the game is actually better with her in the house.
Before I go, here’s a creepy foot rub Nick gave Sis last night. (Gross!):
One more, Tommy does his “botox face” look:
Have a great Taco Tuesday.
