my Big Brother journal 7.22
Last week late Tuesday night, early Wednesday morning around 4am the Detonators alliance was created with my favorite house guests Derrick, Zach, Cody, Frankie and Christine. I used to like Nicole and Donny, but I am not so sure about them anymore. I didn’t like how Donny talked to my Derrick in the storage room last week. He was a little snippy. Nicole is still ok, but I am not exactly sure how I feel about her. She’s had to wear a costume for two weeks in a row, so she’s a trooper.
My favorite house guest is Derrick. He has been my favorite since I saw his interviews before he went into the house. He reminds me a lot of Dan, one of my all-time favorite Big Brother players. He lies to everyone’s face and everyone believes him, trusts him and likes him. It’s unreal. But who is Derrick really loyal to? Team America? The Detonators? Just Cody? I think it’s Derrick and Cody above all all else, like Dan and Memphis of season 10. We’ll see.
After Derrick, I think Frankie and Christine are playing the best games. Frankie has won two HoHs and he is controlling the house with Derrick. The two of them have orchestrated every eviction thus far by convincing people who to put on the block and who to vote out. Christine hasn’t won a competition yet, but she is playing all sides of the house. She is sort of playing like Andy from last season, but except one half of the house knows she is. She reports back to the Detonators what the rest of the house has said. I’m not sure if Christine is more loyal to the Detonators or to Nicole and Hayden, but I think she’s most loyal to Nicole.
A few things I have noticed and have annoyed me this week on Big Brother. I can’t stand how grown people do not close their mouths when they chew, especially Frankie. He is always eating and all I hear on the Live Feeds is “CHOMP! CHOMP! CHOMP!” I never use the expression “at the end of the day,” but that is the only expression the house guests use – and it’s SO annoying! Devin used it all the time, then Caleb uses it all the time and now Cody is using it. Ugh! Caleb like half of the house guests have never seen the show. He didn’t know that in a double eviction a week’s worth of comps are all played during the one-hour live show. Somebody like this cannon win and honestly shouldn’t even make it to jury. If one person is singing or talking about production or diary room sessions, then just shut down that camera on the live feeds. There is no need to put the fish up on all cameras. That way we could always watch something. Live Feeds are 24/7, right CBS?
As of right now, this is what is going on in the house. Frankie and Cody won HoH. Frankie nominated Amber and Jocasta. Cody nominated Brittany and Victoria. Amber and Brittany are strong and Jocasta and Victoria are weak. I don’t like how every week both HoHs work together as a team. I would like to see two opposing HoHs and see how that would play out. Anyway, Amber and Jocasta won Battle of the Block, so they are safe for the week and Frankie is no longer HoH. SPOILER ALERT! Victoria, of all people, won Veto. After a lot of back and forth and discussion where Caleb was almost put up on the block, Donny is the replacement nominee. So it is Brittany vs. Donny for eviction this week. The original target was Brittany, but you know the Big Brother house. They would probably be smart to get Donny out now, maybe. In the Veto ceremony, Zach won a trip to Germany. Nicole has to wear a unitard that looks like a traditional German outfit where she has to carry a beer stein and stuffed brat. Caleb instead of taking the Veto cause technically he won, took the $5000. assuming he was safe. Brittany had to kick 2400 goals in 24 hours, which she did even though she assumed she was going home. Cody, HoH, had to have an ass-kicking whenever the signal sounded for 24 hours – it was a show on a level literally kicking his ass – better than the chum bath.
Side note, you know you are way too much into Big Brother when you fall asleep to the Live Feeds and dream you’re a house guest and then wake up watching the same scene you were just in.
