Happy Thursday, Big Brother Lovers

Good Morning, Big Brother lovers! 3 more days!!!! Before BB10 gets going 100% full swing, we've got a couple more BB9 interviews to run. :) Check back around noonish for the 1st one.

Seems a couple of the BB10 houseguests know a couple of the previous houseguests. First up - Keesha, the Hooters Girl, knows Zach. This is confirmed by Zach. Apparently, she's watched his pet turtle for him a couple times when he went out of town.

I'll be revealing the other one during an interview to be posted later today...

If we go by the spoilers, RealityBBQ has been posting, then we may know who the HoH is already, as well as who's annoying who in the house. Since their source was right about the cast list, I'm trusting this too. Go ahead and click that link to get straight to the potential spoiler... unless you wanna be surprised on Sunday night. I kinda wish I'd waited. lol. We get so few surprises once the season starts.

OK.. so I made it through all the videos last night - finally. That was quite a commitment, but I really wanted to get a feel for the folks, and avoid the trap of not being familiar enough with them and referring to them as blond chick, muscle guy, etc for the first couple days.

So far, I'm enjoying pretty much everyone... First impressions: I thought Angie was a hoot. Michelle seems refreshingly real. Steven is a sweetie. Brian too. Libra, I'm just digging. I enjoyed Renny. Jerry, I enjoyed in that no-nonsense Grampa vibe he's got going, and I'd love to see him go far, but I don't hold out much early hope for it... Memphis? I really didn't get a feel for him from the interview, so the jury's still out on that one.

A few things said definitely bothered me, but not enough to start a campaign. Just a bit bothered by April's cavalier attitude about her DUI - like the only thing wrong with it is that she got caught. That's my issue though... I sat there watching her thinking, oh really? Tell it to my dead sister - killed by a drunk driver.

I think April's real issue in the house will be all the OCD issues she mentioned.

Either way, I wish her, and the others luck... and I can't wait to start watching all of them on the live feeds. If you haven't signed up for the free trial yet, make sure you do before July 13th. That's when the Early Bird Special prices end.

Getting past Ollie's anti gay statement from the commercials (which definitely bugged) and just listening to the interview, I liked him. Again, I don't know how long he'll last though, because his knowledge of the game is so limited.

Dan, who I was also predisposed to disliking based on the commercials and his attitudes about women, I actually found somewhat charming in the interview and very smart. He seems devious enough to make it far in the game, IF he can do as he said he will and keep his politics and cave man attitudes to himself.

I found it funny that this crew seems to have been screened to the hilt to make sure there will be no surprises (porn). And I found it interesting that much of the cast is actually anti-politics of any kind and completely removed from the process... Maybe all those political ads were just designed to capitalize on the election year.

I know I've missed a few people - these are just the ones that stood out most for me during the interviews with Diane. First impressions...

How about yours?

Incidentally, CBS has released more interviews on youtube. Here's Steven telling about his mom's reaction when he came out to her. Oy. Makes me wanna hug him.

To see the rest of them, click here. It'll take you to page 2 of CBS' videos, and that's where all the HGs are - as of this writing.

See ya in a few!

I totally agree with you on the DUI thing. As I watched I thought "are you freakin kidding me? It's okay as long as you don't get caught?" I also thought that the comment would bring her a lot of negative attention. I'm certainly not rooting for her. So far I don't really have a favorite...I want to wait til I see the first episode and a few days of the feeds before I pick a fav :) Thanks carolyn for all you do, you are a goddess!

I too am still trying to watch all the clips.... I am going to wait till Sunday to find out the HOH, because like Carolyn said...so few shocks after that...I can barely contain my excitement for Sunday too bad I have to work until 10 bbt :( So I will be DVRin' and then watching feeds until the houseguests sleep. At least I am on bbt too :) My poor bf is not so much excited for BB to start, because he knows that he will lose me for awhile....

First impressions after watching Diane's interviews:

Angie: Loved her! Early favorite~!
April: Negative vibe from her.
Brian: Adorable! Two thumbs up!
Dan: Opinionated, good for the show.
Jerry: Jury is out. Not sure.
Jessie: Was not feeling him at all.
Keesha: Not sure about her either.
Libra: Liked her as long as she keeps race out of her conversations, she'll be good for the show.
Memphis: Not sure about him either.
Michelle: Good vibes from her, she seems genuine and real to me.
Ollie: Annoying.
Renny: Annoying times ten.
Stephen: Adorable, LOVE him, early favorite!

Just my first impressions......would love to hear everyone else's!

Ok I have a question about the live feeds. It might be a dumb question but I gotta ask.. I never did it before and I am thinking of doing it this season. How does this work..Like Can I view them on more then 1 computer. I work during the day and I have a computer at my desk plus I have my computer at home...Can I watch it from both places or is it only for 1 computer.??

Haven't gone through all the interviews. Was soooo bothered about the offhand DUI comment and the "I have a right to not give a poo about politics" sentiment. Yeah, more people who are motivated to be ignorant about the world around them!

From that last clip, I like Steven a lot. But, being the pessimist I am now, I'm afraid that he'll either a.) be considered "too likeable" and be booted quick or b.) turn into a detestable prick (see entry, Joshua).

Going to keep my negative attitude until I have a reason to feel otherwise. And I don't think the producers are charitable in this regard.

Lisa NYC -

I believe you can watch from 3 IPs... but not at the same time. For example, you can watch from work, then you can watch from home... but not simultaneously.

I'm currently housesitting for a friend who's gone to china, and able to watch from my friend's desktop as well as my laptop.. and when I check at home, it still works fine on my desktop there too.

This will only work if you order from one of the links here, of course. ;)


but it is definitely appreciated. the feed signups keep the site going.

Give it a shot, Lisa :) Join the madness.

Patti, I agree with you!! Loveee Stephen....Sooo adorable...So far my favs are Stephen, Angie, and Brian....I dont think I am gonna like Jessie he seems way too cocky...Dan seems like a jerk to me, April I want to smack!! Not sure about Jerry, Memphis, Michelle, Ollie and Keesha yet. I agree with you on Libra and Renny.

I am so sorry about your sister. Honestly April and Libra were my favorites. I was really digging Libra as well. I did not hear April's non-chalant way of describing her DUI, which is not cool. I liked her because she is competitive and obsessive which I relate to both. Renny is annoying but colorful; she will be interesting to watch.

ShanaMay Goddess, huh? After all the names I've been called in the past month or so, I must say I like that one best! lol.

Therese, Thanks.

I liked her competitiveness too...

carolyn (or catherine ;) - just wanted to say i'm sorry about your sister.
i haven't listened to april's comments but it's unacceptable to be blaise about drinking and driving!
i checked out the rumors for hoh and i'm hoping it's the truth! i like that person and hope he/she is around for a while!!!

I have only watched the Angie video so far. I think I like her, but I strongly suspect that if she feels you've wronged her she could be extremely vengeful! So, if she lasts, and I feel like she might, there will probably be some fireworks involving Angie.

Jerry -- do you think he might have been posting here last season? I have a vague recollection of an older gentleman from Texas (I tend to notice fellow Texans LOL)

Regarding Steven, I loved him from the vid posted here in this thread -- haven't watched the bio interview yet, will soon. But yeah, makes you wanna wrap your arms around him. I hope his mother has come around since then...

Okay, I'm really gonna go watch some more of those bio interviews now.

Thanks Carolyn and Crew! I love BBDish and can't wait for Sunday to get here!

Sarah Thanks.

Boomer - Ya know.. I've been wondering the same thing about Jerry... Hopefully a shout out will tell the tale. :)

Steven is a sweetie...and hot... ;) I shall enjoy watching him this season! He seems cute and nice on the outside, but Im sure he is a manipulator when he needs to be. 3 more days!!

For some reason I have to use IE to watch the youtube vids. I've been watching the bio vids all day and still haven't made it all the way through them, but IE just crashed and I'm taking that as a 'message' that I really need to do some work and not turn my life over so completely to BB just yet -- give it at least a week. LOL

Anyway, here are my thoughts about the first several hgs, I'll post the rest of my thoughts once I finish watching the vids...

Angie -- I like her, as I said before, but definitely am getting a 'don't f*** with me' vibe from her, which could work in her favor... or not...time will tell.

April – Oh, I don't know about this girl. She got on my nerves more than once during the interview. Damn it – that probably means she'll be in the house for a long, long time! UGH! LOL

Brian – I like this dude! He seems down to earth and fairly grounded. We'll see what the craziness of living in the BB house does to him though.

Dan – smarmy and cheesy come to mind. He had to mention too many times that he is a teacher, translation, “I'm a good guy. Really. See what a good thing I'm doing?” The moral dilemmas he mentions are not really dilemmas for him at all – he's already made up his mind...he is going to lie, cheat, connive and backstab as much as he can to survive in the game. The dilemma he faces is not a moral one -- it is simply that he knows he won't be able to continue with is "Gee, I'm a nice guy" farce. So say so and move on, buddy, don't keep trying to pretend like you are something you clearly are not. Be Evel about it and some of us might still love you in the end. But be smarmy and cheesy and we'll turn on you before the game even begins. I'm not wild about him at all...but I think there's a good chance he will go far in the game. I hope I'm wrong about that though, because I think I'll find it really hard to root for him. We'll see though, won't we?

Jerry – I love this guy. I'm a bit put off by his 'strategy' and hope he can be flexible enough to abandon it, if need be. I really want to see this guy go far in the game. If he is voted out early, I will be sad because he will bring an aspect to the day to day life in the BB house that I think many of us have been wishing for – maturity, and yes, as he says 'focus'. Go far, Jerry, go far.

Jessie – I dunno about this kid. He could last a long while, but then again I can easily see folks saying “Jessie who?” because he is voted out so early in the game no one will remember him. I remember last season seeing clips from the first week and thinking about Jacob -- “Who is that?” LOL I can see that with this guy, too. He's likable enough though, so if he lasts a little longer that would be okay, too. I think...I don't really see him making it to the end, and probably not even to the jury house.

Keehsa – I like her. Does she remind anyone else of Danielle from BB8? Some of their facial expressions are so similar it is uncanny! I have to wonder if they are friends or cousins or something....have you ever noticed how Oprah and her friend Gayle use the same expression? I get that same feeling watching this interview with Keesha – that she and Danielle could be close friends. Then again, maybe it is just part of the “Hooters” personna. I think she has the potential to go a long way in this game, if she can stay under the radar, and I get the impression she can.

Libra – Oh man, I like this girl, too! If she can keep her political views on the dl, she should do well. I'm a little concerned she and Jerry will butt heads, and that will be unfortunate because I want these two Texans to be friends, maybe even to align and go further in the game together than either could alone. That's what I'm rootin' for at this point...but it's BB...so who the hell knows. Right? LOL

Hi Caroline! Thank You once again for the wonderful info on BB10...I cannot wait for it to start.

Watched the rest of the bio vids -- my impressions, fwiw:

Memphis – Don't know about this guy. I had a couple negative reactions, but very mild. I think he is a little too guarded. That could work in his favor, but then again, it could make the others in the house think he is a 'snake' and needs to go sooner than later. Then again, maybe he just isn't comfortable with being interviewed. Will just have to wait and see how he is once he gets in the house. Definitely feel like he could be a little volatile given the right set of circumstances.

Michelle – eh....I don't love her, but she's okay, I guess. I think she might be the pot-stirrer in the house. The one who runs around telling everyone what so-and-so said or did...

Ollie – Maybe I'm tired, but I found him to be a little one-dimensional. I kind of doubt Ollie is going to last long in the house. I don't think he thinks things through enough to be able to maintain or develop any kind of strategy while in the house. Maybe a 'coat tails' strategy, but a well thought out strategy – doubtful.

Renny – I really kind of like this gal! We're the same age, but nothing alike, and I feel a bit of a bond simply because we are the same age. Weird, I know. Anyway, I think if she CAN know when to keep her mouth shut, she might do okay in the game...but I'm really doubtful she'll know when to keep quiet. I think the only time she probably is quiet is when she's asleep! LOL She will bring some spunk and spark to the show, she's a hoot! I doubt she'll make it as far as final four, I just hope she lasts longer than two or three weeks. She seems like a lot of fun.

Steven – He's a likeable kid. I hope he does well, and I REALLY hope he doesn't have a mean streak like Dustin and Joshuah. I'm thinking he does not, but we'll see what the house brings out of him, right?
