Big Brother 10 Tuesday Afternoon in the House

12:06pm BBT
Housecalls just began a couple minutes ago. Bunky is on with Gretchen today, and he is digging Jessie's physique big time. The link is on the right sidebar. Just click there to get to the show. :)

Meanwhile, on the live feeds, Steven just made a slanted eye comment about Julie... Note to Steven - Not a great idea there, buddy.

12:13pm BBT
Jessie's training April now. They're doing lunges across the backyard. Mind your knees, dear.

Michelle, Keesha and Renny are inside chatting.

12:22pm BBT
Whole lotta chatter goin' on.
In the 60s room, we have Libra, Steven and Keesha
Steven: (to Keesha) Ya know what cracked me up? When Jerry said you need a suppository.

Talk turns to related sex toys.

Outside, Ollie, Michelle, Brian and Dan are on the couch, chatting about the show tonight.
Michelle: Our families get to see us again today. The Power of Veto Competition.
Ollie: They'll probably only show 45 seconds of it.
Michelle: Really? Wow. This weather makes ya lazy huh? I ran 100 laps. That's not too lazy.
BB: Ollie, please come to the Diary Room.

Ollie heads inside. Michelle too.

12:28pm BBT
Dining Table
Jessie & Michelle
Jessie's encouraging Michelle to stay hydrated. He asks her how his eyebrows look. He needs a little work. She offers to pluck em.

Jessie: I want my key to be back in my hole.
Michelle: I want your key to be back in my hole too.

Jessie: You coming to the pool party?
Michelle: I didn't know there was a pool party.
Jessie: Well there is, and you're invited.

Michelle walks to the SR to check if it's open for Jessie. She stops in the bathroom and asks if there's a pool party... says she wasn't invited. We hear Keesha say, of course you are.

12:32pm BBT
Michelle goes back to the dining table with Jessie and starts whispering. Michelle gets up again. Ollie passes through... Michelle tells Jessie the SR is open now.

BB: Ollie, please put on your microphone.
Keesha: (kidding) Shame, shame, shame on you.

Michelle comes back to the table to whisper some more with Jessie. She says, "Steven was saying, 'I'm not gonna be able to live in sequester with crazy people,' and I'm thinkin' don't you worry about that, honey. We got that all taken care of."

12:35pm BBT
Michelle & April(?)
Michelle makes mention of crashing the pool party again.

12:37pm BBT
Brian, Dan & Memphis
Guy talk...
Memphis is talking about getting his 5 year old nephew a toy semi automatic weapon. His sister was not thrilled.

12:39pm BBT
Angie & Keesha are tanning. Screencappers, take your positions.

12:47pm BBT
60s Room
Steven, Libra, Renny & Michelle

Michelle and Steven were having an argument, and Renny just made a grand faux pas and insinuated herself into it. Not very clever, Miss On the Block. The argument is about dishes, by the way. lol.

Libra interjects.

Libra: Y'all, we gotta get along.
Renny: We are getting along. Jessie just puts words in people's mouths.

***Renny, zip it. If you know what's good for you. Calling Jessie out to Michelle? Not a great game move.

2:15pm BBT
Exterior Lockdown

The HGs are locked outside, and BB gave them pizza, so they're all happy campers for the moment.

2:24pm BBT
The HGs are still outside eating pizza. They're wondering if BB had an ulterior motive giving it to them.

But first, anti-semitic garbage from Steven, Memphis and Renny... Color me disgusted. We'll have a clip up for you shortly. We were so stunned, we missed the first 90 seconds of it. If you find it, please let us know.
    ***If anyone's keeping track, that's 3 for Steven - "Colored, Slant Eyes and now Jews." I so wanted to like this guy, but he's making it really hard.

I'm actually impressed with Angie and Brian's reactions. Nothing out loud from them, but you can see the "are you insane?!! or just stupid?" in their expressions.

3:22pm BBT
Must... move... along...

The HGs are still on exterior lockdown. Ollie's making time with April. Michelle and Keesha are sunning on the double chaise. Jerry's sitting at the edge of the pool... Jessie's glistening in the pool...
    ***I'm going to focus on that for a couple moments to cool off from Steven. Darn! Fishies!

3:27pm BBT
Back from fish...
Still exterior lockdown.

April and Ollie are taking the opportunity to get to know each other a bit better.

I'm slowly catching on to some of the HG's names, but it's difficult meeting 13 new people all at once. I too have noticed a lot of interesting "comments" being made, but it doesn't really matter if you make to the end. Still you don't want to insult your host of all people. If my memory serves me correctly Adam was very "complementary" of Julie last season.

Doing it in sock puppet form is another story. I didn't get to see it go down, but I heard a rehash of the skit today. Too funny!

This is usually my least favorite part of the BB season. So many people, hard to "get to know" them all and keep up with everything that's happening. In any case, I'm really struggling with Steven. Does anyone know whether or not Libra knows that he referred to her as colored? What's the deal with the Julie Chen comment? Is this just a true lack of sophistication? I'm curious, what are everyone's thoughts on whether there is anyone who will "go there" with the whole going off on people this season?

July 15, 2008 at 12:26 PM  
Blogger Pyke said...

kj, the reason he called her that colored girl is because apparently he told her privately he was gay and she said she wouldn't tell others. Then others came to him and said Libra told me. So then he got mad at Libra, started calling her controlling, and all that other stuff.

That doesn't excuse his behavior... but this is what happened.

MORE on the in the room PMS fight...

Stevan/Libra were talking nice about future and what Stevan wants and then WHAM Jessie and Michelle start fighting in the other room about dishes. Mrs. contrlling Libra goes in to control the situation... Jessie leaves, Michelle goes into room with Stevan and tells her you accused me of not doing dishes too but Stevan feels he does do dishes (one load a day at least) and then Renny comes in and says you don't do dishes. Stevan says I do, you're not in there 24/7.

Re: the "colored" comment. One thing I find really interesting watching this show season after season, is how racist/sexist/homophobic (among other things) people in our country are - on a deep level.

I don't think most of the people cast whould think of themselves as predjudice. I'm sure Steven doesn't think of himself as racist, yet he is, at least on some deep level. It's so ingrained. People go there in anger and in jest so often.

It doesn't surprise me people are predjudice, it surprises me that people who don't think of themselves as predjudice still often have those deep inclinations.

That whole situation with the dishes should have been put to bed as soon as he said he would start doing them more often.

I agree it's not smart to mess with Chen. Not smart at all. She looks like the type who would have no problems smacking you with one of her spiky high heels. lol.

That would make for good tv.

I have read what various people said about steven's comment about using the word "colored", I think some people are taking it way out of hand.

I think alot of the time people get in there and forget about the cameras and just say what they really mean. Kinda like when you argue with someone and say something mean but you don't mean it at all, even though you said it.

The sock puppet clip was HILARIOUS. Its so great...only a week in the house *seems like just 3 days to us* and already drama and hilarious clips like that. It is hard to keep up with every convo and potential alliance at the beginning, but there are some HG's I def. know i will continue to like, and those i will continue to dislike. Looks like the starts of a great season! I'd only spend it here at bbdish...thanks Carolyn!

This may be just me, but I am really likeing Steven (even tho his not-so-nice comments need to stop happening like yesterday), Angie, Memphis n Dan (weird, huh?). Jerry's cool too and Brian's cool, but uh...yea...peace out Brian, lol. Maybe I just don't like going along with the majority of the house but Libra/Keesha/April/Ollie/Michelle/Renny are all just rubbing me the wrong way.

I think by next week or so, I should have my favs n least favs figured out. Just so hard to do with all of these people in the house. We shall see...

Thanx Carolyn and I hope u are having a wonderful day!

#1 - During interviews, these people talked such talk about their strategy. It seems to me like they are already falling apart....racial comments, bickering over dishes, the falling apart of alliances drama (Jerry/Brian) already. It looks like these people are losing their marbles already!

#2 - could anyone tell me exactly how the Jerry/Brain thing fell apart? I can't find it anywhere.

Ry Hiya! I'm fresh, clean and happy :) lol

Jen in OK - The Brian/Jerry alliance crumbled before the feeds got turned on... Jerry found out that Brian had broken his word to him, and made alliances with just about everyone in the house. What Jerry didn't know was that Brian's alliance with him was never real to him anyway, since he'd allied with Dan first.

I could not stand Renny at the beginning. After she got the big Nom. she seemed to take it down a notch or two, so I thought, well she realized her wrong ways and is going to act right now. Now I see she is starting to feel too safe and is starting to come back out.

Michelle, quite little Michelle, I thought we were going to have to pinch her to even get her noticed. Now she feels that she has to be in every situation and that if she does not know every detail everyone else is wrong. I hope she leaves very soon! She is much more annoying the Renny at this point, although it is a VERY close race.

I think Libra is used to being a mom of small children. She is acting like a mom of small children and trying to get everyone to play fair and calm down.

I really hate to see Brian go. I know he played too hard too soon, however I think he would be a great one to watch. Plus there is the fact that I think he is the best looking guy in there.

I wonder if the first evicted lives in the extra hidden room and then comes back at some point. Hmmmm...

Hey all

Thanks for the updates Carolyn, been away from the puter the last evening and today and they are fantastic.

i was hoping with an older cast it would emerge a but more mature, gazooks these people.

jane u r 100 percent correct, but its a universal human problem not just our country. i lived in a country with 98% otiental and another 99% black and its as pervasive there as here. The china and japan have terrible racial records. most of the violence of africa is racial, ethnically motivated, eastern and to a lesser degree southern europe have terrible racism. its a scourge no doubt, and so ignorant imho

The best visual from a comment so far was from evel girl!

I cannot wait to see Chenbot introduce Rodeo Racist and Renny-her-mouth to her Jimmy Choos!

That visual cracks me up!

I was reluctant to call Steven a racist after the first comment, thinking he is from the back woods somewhere. AFter three comments? I cannot support someone so ignorant no matter how he plays the game or how amusing he is.

As for Renny... I wish they would evict her instead of Brian tomorrow. I don't understand why he is taking this lying down. He should be campaigning for votes.

Michelle is sounding and acting like a harpy.

Hello dishfamily! Hello Carolyn! This is my first post this season, I have been trying hard to get into what's going on. It's just starting to heat up. I agree with several of the other posters that when there are so many people talking in the beginning, and mostly being polite and all it was hard to get into. But I'm now starting to really form opinions about some of these people. First of all, Michelle really bugs me! She does not shut up!! I have yet to see anyone have a civil conversation with here where she doesn't continually talk over them or get bent out of shape somehow. It's all about her. And does she EVER stop loving her hair!! Put it down! I think it's time for a shampoo! I don't think she's washed it since she straightened it out. Whew..that felt good! Also, Renny...can you say trainwreck? This poor woman's foot is constantly in her mouth! I think she is truly clueless. I don't care for her at all, but I think it would be a shame for her to go because she creates drama lovely drama! Okay, that's about it for now.
Carolyn, you are the best! I couldn't imagine Big Brother without you and the dish! Keep up the awesome work!

My mind changes everyday on who I like so far (all 3 days of feeds), but I think I like Allison, Angie, Michelle, Keesha, and I guess Dan or Jessie is my favorite guy, although the guys are not nearly as good as last season (i.e. crazy james, A-Balla, and Josh.) I'll post again soon, but thanks for feeding the addiction and capturing all the good moments. Also, major props for snagging Chelsia as a guest blogger, she's obviously one of our (the hardcore fans) favorites from last year, and I can't wait to tell her how hot I think she is in the comments. I guess I just did. Get those naps when you can, we expect the frequent updates we've grown accustomed to.

I can't wait to see what the comp was that Jerry won. I am ready for Jerry and Renny to kick butt in the comps. Us over the hill and rolling down hill toward the grave are ready for age to be vindicated.

People can be total fans of the show, never have missed an episode, and yet not ever made a single click on the CBS site, watched the feeds or House Calls, posted to a BB message board, read a BB blog, or done anything else Big Brother-related online.

So... I think you might be overreacting just a tad. Not all huge BB fans are fan-nerds. And not all fan-nerds are huge BB fans. A BB fan's level of internet commitment doesn't indicate their level of BB fandom or knowledge of the game.

You have every right to rant (as a fan-nerd), I'm just trying to get you to see it from another perspective.

thanks for the perspective. i guess sometimes i forget that not everyone watches the feeds & knows what really goes on. i just take it as obvious that if you know about the show, you know about the blogs, shout-outs, photos, etc.

i think this was just a culmiation of the frustrations over these houseguests. i am enjoying them- definitely some good drama- but their offensive comments have me looking at them in a general bad light (which is not at all how i usually view bb houseguests).

Okay--- so I want to love Steven. He's cute, he's gay and he's basically a cowboy -- what is there not to love.
Well I heard the Libra comment. I was disappointed that he would use an ignorant phrase. I haven't heard the comment on Asians, so I can't judge but again I do have disappointment (but there isn't a context to use that in)
No the comment in the clip just confuses me. It sounds like he is asking a question in regards to another's statement.Like I just don't understand it

I agree with Jane though -- We live in a Nation that really in all honesty was built around racism. We took land from the Native Americans and bought slaves from Africa. We sent Asians to internment camps We had separate fountains, what less than 50 years ago. We have people who feel "the illegals" are taking "our" jobs, we have a President that want to Constitutionalize hate by wanting a ban on gay marriage
I believe we live in a great country but we have a sad history that is kept alive by people who speak ignorantly. It's sad. It's sad cause, how do we stop it. If I was in the house I'd of slap his head when he said that about Libra. My grandma used that term. She died 8 years ago but used it til she died. It's what she grew up with. My grandpa used worse and I hated it. For me it taught me that what was right and wrong. I loved them both but I knew I never wanted to use words like that. I'm a gay man too (well they didn't know that, well I did tell grandpa at the end, but he was in a coma so i thought why not if anything it would make him go to the light a bit sooner) I know the words used on me have hurt and I wouldn't want to hurt someone else the same way. That makes Steven all the more disappointing. He should know better. I'm not ready to condemn him yet (I fear it's cause he's cute) but i don't want to root for him either.
I don't know and I know I'm writing too much, so forgive me.
When will we come to a day when the n word and f-g aren't used in everyday conversation (like in season 9). Or " that's so gay" as a negative comment. I don't know if we ever will. I hope we do.

BHcolin -- just my thoughts
