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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go outside and close the sliding glass door.
More talk about Jerry's family, specifically a granddaughter who's in med school...
11:13am BBT - Fishies.
11:15am BBT - Feeds are back.
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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."
