Morning in the Big Brother House

BB woke the HGs at 9am - awfully early for a Sunday in the BB house. When the feeds came back on, Memphis asked Keesha if she knew why they'd been awoken so early, and she said she didn't, but that BB had said to be ready in 45 minutes.
    ***Ready for what?!

Just before 10am, BB called an outside lockdown, and 5 minutes later, we got Trivia.

Hmm. The possibilities are many... foremost in my mind are the phone call or possibly a luxury comp, but the latter doesn't really lend itself to a short outside lockdown.

As of 10:51am BBT, we've still got Trivia...

Feeds are back! Jerry got the phone call.

10:53am BBT
Living Room

All the HGs are gathered, and Jerry's talking... saying he wish they could've gotten it. They tell him he deserved it. He talks about who he got to speak with, and apologizes for crying, and thanks them for all their support.

Ollie: You deserved that, man.
Jerry: We all deserved it. They may have thought Joann needed me.
Dan: How'd she sound?
Jerry: She sounded great...

It's a nice time in there at the moment. They're asking for all the details.

Jerry is telling them all to value their families, and the girls to make sure to have babies.

Jerry: I was wondering if America loved me at all, or if I'd walk out of here and they'd throw things at me...
Keesha: That was pretty cool though. Just to hear the conversation.
Jerry: They told me not to worry.. That they're taking care of Joann.. She's a very unassuming, quiet person. I make up for all of the bad side of our family. I hope you all get to meet her.
Renny: I'm glad you got the call. i know you've been concerned about her.
Jerry: I knew she was being well taken care of, but it really hit me yesterday when they said there was a chance of getting a call...

All the HGs keep asking for more details, as if they can connect with their own families and loved ones by proxy.

11:02am BBT
The living room group breaks up. Dan shakes Jerry's hand in congratulations. Keesha gives him a hug.

Jerry goes to the 80s room, holds hid head in his hands and says, "Thank you, America," lays down in bed and resumes crying.

Outside on the couch, Renny says she can't believe he didn't tell his wife he loved her. The others cut him slack on this...and refer to only the positives. Dan and Keesha lead that charge. Everyone is happy he received the call. Well, almost everyone.

Keesha: He did good. I think I would've been a mess.

11:06am BBT
Outside Couch
Renny: I'm gonna get smack talked about me. I just can't believe he didn't tell his wife he loved her. he told the kids and grand kids. If I got a call from my husband, it woulda been the first thing out of my mouth.
Keesha: I don't think he was expecting the phone call to end... It seemed abrupt.
Renny: I know y'all think I'm bad.
Memphis: I don't think you're bad, Renny, but I'm evil too. I think the same way.
Renny: He told everybody he loved them except his wife... I don't get that... but I didn't get the phone call, so obviously they know something I don't know. Then he hugged everybody except me... I was gonna hug him, but he walked off.
    **To cry.


11:10am BBT
Outside - Talk turns to last night...

Dan tell them that Michelle came up to see him last night, but he doesn't want to get into the details right now... They all figure out that Ollie sent her up to plug away against them...

11:11am BBT
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go outside and close the sliding glass door.

11:12am BBT
Backyard Couch

More talk about Jerry's family, specifically a granddaughter who's in med school...

11:13am BBT - Fishies.

11:15am BBT - Feeds are back.
Backyard, Couch

Talk has turned to the educating of the HGs. Jerry's encouraging Michelle to get her degree. Michelle's saying it's not economically feasible, and Jerry tells how he did it at night over the course of 11 years...

Dan, Memphis, Keesha and Jerry are really encouraging Michelle to go to college, and she keeps saying it's really hard in RI to get scholarship money and grant money, etc... It's very clear that she's never actually investigated it. They're helping her with that too, telling her how to get grants and all the different types of grants. She admits she had no idea any of it was available.

Renny's off on the hammock alone.

Ollie's working out.

11:22am BBT
Lockdown's over. Jerry continues encouraging Michelle and tells her to contact him once this is all over and he will help her find the grants. Michelle continues on believing that education is only for the wealthy. Shame on whoever sold her that bill of goods.

11:26am BBT
HoH Landing - Dan & Memphis are playing chess.

Backyard Couch - Jerry is still trying to get Michelle to understand that there are so many scholarships available, she's doing herself an incredible disservice to not educate herself.

Michelle extricates herself from the conversation be going to check on her laundry, telling Jerry she'll probably be on the block next to him come tomorrow afternoon, then heading inside.

CUT TO:
11:35am BBT

Kitchen - Ollie's telling Michelle that they're all right, and she should look into it.

Hippie Room - Keesha & Renny are having a whisperfest. We're going with the Hippie Room.

Renny: I hope tomorrow goes as planned.
Keesha: Me too.
Renny: Are you saying it might not?
Keesha: No! I was thinking about this, between you and me.. Think about it.. i think you and I have a fairly decent chance of staying in..

Keesha runs all the possibilities and determines there are much bigger targets in the house than them.

Keesha: I just think that we're not one of the main targets, because when Dan breaks his word to Ollie, Ollie's gonna be *pissed* and he's gonna go after him hard. Memphis already told me he wont put either of us up...
Renny: They're stupid to keep us both in here... After next week, it's gonna get nuts.
Keesha: Yeah, final 5. That's when it's gonna start to get rough.

Keesha's amazed they'll be the last 2 women in the house. Renny's concerned the men will band together. Keesha thinks they'll go after each other instead.

Keesha and Renny reconfirm their mutual alliance.

Renny says they've got to start studying the details of the house, and that it's going to be important, and that the guys don't notice fine details...

11:50am BBT
Hippie Room, cont'd.

Talk turns to the willpower that will be required of them in the final weeks, and they both congratulate and encourage each other.

Renny & Keesha understand that if either of them are in the final 2 next to one of the men, the man will win, because April, Libra and Michelle will make sure of it. They reconfirm their final 2 promise... and run numbers a little as to the mechanics of the next couple votes.

11:54am BBT
Renny & Keesha exit the Hippie Room and head to the kitchen.

Renny: Where is everybody?

They head to the Spa Room.

Keesha: (Whispers) Ya know when Dan says he wants to take us to the final 3? That's bullsh*t. Why would he wanna take both of us?

Dan appears and asks them if they want to join him in the pool.

Dan: You have nothing to be paranoid about. I just wanna let you know that. I'm hearing all kinds of things...
Keesha: About us?
Dan: No.. Just all kinds of things...

Dan leaves. Renny worries it's her that's being talked about. Keesha's not worried because she's never said anything bad about Dan, "except when I called him the Mole that time, but I told him."

Congrats Jerry. I don't know if he is America's favorite but despite what he has done and said we still feel for him because of his age.

If the plan goes off without a hitch Jerry probably has a while left in the house. He won't be anyone's target, except Renny, and they will be busy trying to get the others out first.

I don't think Jerry is America's favorite, just that he's been very alone in the house and his wife probably needed him. I think it's more about compassion than favoritism. Sometimes we actually have compassion in this country.

As for not saying I love you, who knows? Maybe it was too much for him to handle. Maybe she just knows. It's impossible to judge other people's intimate relationships. We never have a clue. Renny can be pretty intolerant sometimes, which is surprising.

I don't think Jerry getting the call had anything to do with being America's Favorite. I think we all just felt really sad for this old guy who is so isolated in the house- no real friends, no one to lean on. He's an ass, but he's still kind of like everyones' grumpy granddad. We felt sorry for him- moping around the house. I don't really like him but I'm glad he got the call.

Michelle needs to get over herself. All she does is feel sorry for herself and if she really wanted to go to college then she could just like everyone else does. She said that she would have to win the power ball now. Oh poor baby!

They should have an open bar set up just before a big competition just to see who could resist. I guess that wouldn't be fair though since they don't all drink.

Jerry probably didn't feel the need to verbalize how he felt to his wife ... remember patrick schwaze in Ghost ... he always said "ditto" instead of "i love you".

I love renny but she can be a bit cold and frank sometimes. I'm amazed she is so protective of Keesha, who i love as well, but I could certainly see Renny ripping into for various things.

(psychic-ly sending) Dan ... Don't Trust Memphis! He will throw you under the steam roller without hesitation, because he knows he could never win vs. you in the final two!

And here we go with the poor me and Michelle. "I can't afford to go to college". Obviously she has not even checked into it. How can you not know about all the grants out there. The HG's are all telling her the sames thing. "Why doesn't Rhode Island tell us about that?" Give me a break. Ever heard of the internet Michelle? With the income she stated on her Myspace and she says she lives at home, why can't she afford it? My guess is she isn't smart enough to get in!? Sorry, but that is ignorance at her age!

No more complaining and NO, it isn't working, making people feel sorry for you and hoping you'll win! I worked full time and went to grad. school part time and it took me 4 years, but I did it! You can too...it's called priorities, honey!

I'm giving Michelle some slack on this too. It can be a lot harder to conceive of education when you are the first. People don't realize debt for college is not like regular debt, it's very flexible and forgiving. I still haven't started to seriously pay back grad school and it's been 15 years. The government wants people to be educated, but I come from a family where even my grandmother who was born in 1900 went to college (teacher's college), so the perspective is different.

Good morning to the DishChick Crew and to all us commenters.

I had forgotten about the phone call and since I turned on feeds at their normal wakey time... OK... I was wrong. AGAIN! It won't happen another time now a very long time.

I hate to keep Renny bashing, but she really is showing her true colors with her trash talk about what Jerry didn't say and what she would have said to her family. Renny Gurl! If you are in shock and get just a few minutes there is no way you can say it all.

Her isolation to the hammock is more telling than all the rest. I believe she may have had a sense of entitlement and knew that it was going to be her to get the call because America loves her. More proof of her hateful and vindictive side that she has been showing the last 10 or so days.

I'm really going to try to stay off my Renny Rant bandwagon today, but if anyone else wants to bash her, I would love to read it. Heck, I'd like to read differing views that might change my way of thinking. I'm not only an open book, I have an open mind (and shirt and jeans and zippers and... well you all know me by now... use your imagination as to how far I could go with that.

But Before Michelle finds out she can get a pell grant and go to college they need to teach that idiot how to eat. she chews twice then swallows as she is smacking.. My Grandmother would have made her leave the table if she was still alive and in there.. im sorry i feel about michelle same as i did Natalie and Jameka.. Could not stand any of them. as for Dan Keesha memphia and renny they can rule if Dan does not get a stupid streak. But i have noticed when a person gets HOH they go stupid..

I don't think Jerry is America's favorite...

You are absolutely on target there Jane. We weren't voting for America's Favorite, we were voting for America's CHOICE. There's a big difference in those two words.

I voted for Jerry to get the call. He certainly isn't my favorite, but he was my choice because family means so much more to someone his age. Not that everyone there isn't missing their family, but.. well fill in the blanks. I'm hung today. (Auntie Mame's way of saying hungover.)

Did you see Michelle throw herself on the bed last night crying (tantrum) when she found out she wasn't getting the call? She really is a sore loser, or she thought America loved her best?

Finding out she is going up AND going home should be worth watching! Wish it was on the feeds!

Hello Everyone. Hope you had a wonderful brunch with you mother, Carolyn.

I am very happy for Jerry that he received the phone call... And him not telling his wife he loved her, I am sure after 50 some years of being married, it just goes unspoken at times...Some people just have this understanding...I use to tell my husband I loved him and he would say ditto, back at ya, just different things at different times. I just knew he loved me...Every relationship is different and we can't judge for we don't know their relationship... I am sure Jerry and his wife have a very loving relationship.
I was on here all day yesterday, and late last night. Today I have work to do around the house. Will be checking in to see what is going on in the BB house..
Everyone have a Great Sunday!!!

Caroliyn, I loved this:

Keesha's amazed they'll be the last 2 women in the house. Renny's concerned the men will band together. Keesha thinks they'll go after each other instead.


Does Keesha actually watch BB or any other reality TV? With very few exceptions, at least on the shows I watch, it's the women that eat their own, as they already have by only having 3 women still in the house. Men usually just don't do that. They bond and their bond isn't full of jealousy and fear.

And with that I am going to veg on the sofa and watch Men's Water Polo. Gotta love those underwater shots. >:) Not to mention the Speedos and hairy chests... I could go on, but then I would be typing with one hand and I know no one here wanted to see that typed out so I will stop with an "I'll be back."

I know Carolyn and all of you are on top of things.. OOPS... there I go again... ^Ä^...

I am not sure why everyone seems to think that it is common knowledge that anyone can go to college. I guess if you come from a family that has been there, it just seems natural, but when no one you know of has been, it does seem to be something only rich folks get to do.

I, like a lot of you, think Renny is funny and entertaining but I also feel that she is not only a loose cannon but will sell anyone out, including Keesha to get to the end. I think, rightfully so, she feels she can win against anyone else if she is in the F2.

Her hate against Jerry and Memphis has been evident for a long time. She still can't let go of the fact that Jerry put her up in the first week. "Get over it Renny" nobody knew anyone that early and her Jessie had been the ones causing upset in the house at that time. As far as Memphis goes, he can be rude and too frank at times but nobody else takes it so personal.

I think Renny is use to getting her way and if you don't agree with her or do as she wishes you're on her shit list.

I think if Keesha, Memphis, Dan and Renny get to the F4 and she is nominated she will cause more problems than Michelle will and whoever nominates her will live in terror for a week. I just hope that it's Memphis that does the nominating as he will handle it a lot better than anyone else as he doesn't really care because he already knows he won't get her vote.

I also think that Keesha will use her to get to F4 but she also knows she can't win against her in F2, so my question is would Keeha want Dan or Memphis in that F2 with her? I'm betting Memphis because of the situation with him winning the car.

As far as the question Dan has broken his word so far, I don't beleive he has. With Jessie he gave his word to not vote him out only for the week prior to the actual week he did vote him out. He only hm mmm when it was brought up the week of the actual eviction. Also with Ollie, the agreement was that Ollie couldn't tell anyone, which he has and that would nullify the whole deal.

So for the long post but I have felt so strongly since her HOH that Renny is not to be trusted, although I do think she will stick with the plan for this week.

Michelle is really getting on my nerves!!! I myself am a broke single person from RI with a degree...because the one thing that is very easy to get help with in RI is financial aid, and grants. Also there are specific loans that the only way you can be turned down is if you have already recieved one, no credit checks no turn down, the only catch is if you dont start making paymets by 6 months AFTER you graduate they are allowed to garnish your wages!

I have NO sympathy for this girl! there are so many ways she can get help for school around here!

according to her myspace she is a realtor ( I looked it up at the company she works for...she is a secretary) and claims to make 75-100,000 a year. She is only looking for people to feel bad for her and give her attention!

anon @ 12:20 -- they go over the grants and scholarships in high school! It isn't some big secret. From day one in high school that is all they drum into the kids' minds -- go to college and they DO tell them about grants and scholarships and how to learn more. As someone else said, one only needs to walk into the financial aid office of any community college to learn this stuff. And then there is the internet.

My guess is that Michelle just wasn't paying attention. To further guess, I'm guessing that since her parents are immigrants (or are they first generation? Seems like Michelle has said her parents were both born in Portugal, but not positive about that) to this country Michelle may well have gotten the idea that a college education isn't for everyone from them!

I don't think it is as easy to get a 'free' or at least a financed education in all other countries as it is in ours. So, she probably tuned out the college talk in high school because she'd already gotten the message at home that college was beyond her reach. They told her, but she wasn't listening because she believed it didn't apply to her...or she was out partying that day. Who knows...one thing is for certain -- she knows now and so if she REALLY wants to go to college she will find a way.

My family and I grew up struggling for who knows how many years. My parents still work a factory job, and has been for the last 10+ years. I am going into my fourth year of Nursing this coming September at our local University, and you know what? My parents and I paid for my first two years of school by ourselves. We sure did struggle through it, and not a penny was wasted! I am finally graduating next April =), and I will be the first to graduate with a Bachelors Degree in my family!

In my eyes, I believe anyone can do it. The question is, how hard are they willing to work for it?

Hey All...Hugs to my BB dish buddies! ♥

As far as the whole college thing with Michelle...there could be a lot of things going on. Yes, for some it does seem that it is only open for the ones with money. Even with everyone explaining it to Michelle, she is hesitant..that could be her playing the whoa is me card, but it could also be just plain scared.

Growing up for me college was not even an option...after my kids had both graduated from college, my son dared me to try to go back to school! Yeah right...45 yrs. old ! Well, scared as hell, I did do it, but not something I ever thought I would or could do!!! Just some insight on what Michelle could be thinking. BTW....school changes a hell of a lot in 20 yrs.!!! Had to take time off since Mom passed and we had Dad move in...take care of him now, but still have my books, etc.

I know too much info....but hopefully explains some psyche of someone going back to school.

OK, I'm confused - are they thinking we aren't human again? I don't get an Afternoon Report. Did someone put me on the block? Or lock me out of HOH? Please say it's not just me!?!
