The Overnight Report
Good Morning Big Brother lovers! Happy Friday!! Today in the BB10 house: Nominations... and perhaps a luxury comp? They haven't had one yet. It's certainly time...
Boy.. does anyone else feel hungover from all the highs and lows last night?? Geez Louise. Talk about drama... Talk about expect the unexpected! I'm still trying to get coherent and take it all in.
If you haven't seen the posts from last night, here are the direct links in the order they occurred:
- *The Live Show*
- On The Feeds Right After the Live Show
- The Fab Four & Jerry
- Thursday Evening in the BB10 House
- Jerry's HoH Reveal
To our friends on the Gulf Coast, now feels like an excellent time to go visit family up north, no? Please be safe and prepared, and don't wait til Gustav gets any closer to get the heck outta there!
And now.. the overnight report. Since ReporterX was up covering the house til the HoH Reveal, we'll start after that.
1:00am BBT HoH Room Jerry, Dan
Renny has just left.
Dan: I wont make the mistake I made the first time.. not talking to you.
Jerry: I'll hear you out.
Talk turns to Ollie and the broken deal from Dan's HoH.
Jerry: I thought he was stupid coming off that rope. You did exactly what I thought you'd do. When Ollie dropped, I knew the game was on, and I was in deep sh*t, 'cause I was with him. I understand what you did to him. How g-damn naive was he?? Seriously, Dan. I need someone that I can count on going into next week (when I can't play for HoH).. I don't know how much Memphis will want to deal with me. Tomorrow, I have to make deals. I have to. But who can I trust? If I make any deals with you, I'm gonna put blood on it.
Intense game talk continues...
Jerry: Dan, ya left me with a losing team.
Dan: I never put you in harm's way, though.. Indirectly, yes, but not directly.
Jerry recounts his game play, all the moves he's made and people he's helped/saved along the way....
Jerry: Somehow, I have to figure out which 2 people will take me to the final 3. It's up to all of you to try to convince me.
Dan: PoV will be huge.
Jerry: True... but I get to make the decision. For now, I just gotta find a way to figure out if I can trust any of you, or just say f you all and send home the 2 suckers that hate me the most.
Talk continues... As Jerry's words are the most important at this juncture, we're just gonna keep flowing along with him...
Jerry: If I end up going to the jury house, you will win this game. I will control who gets the big money. I played nice at the end. The times I was playing nasty, it wasn't me.
Jerry divulges his strategy...
Jerry: With you, I wanted to send a message to these people to not trust you. I played that long and hard. The Judas thing? I had wanted to call you Benedict Arnold, but that would've meant a traitor to our country...
Jerry makes mention of the flack he's still getting from the folks in the DR about it.
Jerry: They wont shut up about it. They wont leave it alone. They're trying to get me to compare it to what I did to Brian... Brian brought that on himself.
Jerry seems to be considering Dan for final 3... Either that, or he's giving him rope to hang him with the others...
Jerry: You have a chance to get either $500,000 or $50,000. I can make it happen.. I'm almost positive. I saved your ass twice... No reason I can't do it again... but I can't put my faith 100% in you. Whatever happens, we need a third player. Think about it...
Jerry throws out the names..
Jerry: Should we keep Memphis in it? Should we keep Keesha in it? Or should we keep Renny in it? Don't feed me a bunch of sh*t... You have to worry about this week... I have to worry about next.
Jerry breaks it down...
Jerry: Renny's sweet. I'm not worried about her. All it comes down to is this: (for Final 3) Is it you and Memphis, you and Keesha, or Memphis and Keesha? You may think you and Keesha are close, but I told you I heard her talking with Memphis about the trip to Tahoe.. I don't think you believed it.
Jerry moves back to the topic of Renny, saying she's a guaranteed vote for Keesha, no matter what, and that she's been Keesha's maid.
Jerry: It's carried her this far. I don't think it can carry her any farther.
Dan: But by keeping Renny in the house, everyone has a better chance of winning the next HoH.
Jerry: But you can't do it alone. I got lucky today. Maybe you all underestimated me a little bit. (laughs) The old man doesn't go away.
Memphis & Keesha
Memphis: I don't know what we're gonna do.
Keesha: (pragmatic) Fight like hell to stay in the house! We've gotta do what we've gotta do right now.. It's down to 5 people.
Memphis: I'm not gonna feed you any bs, and I'm not gonna throw you under the bus. To be honest, I need you in this house. Period. I would like to have Dan stay too.
Keesha: I thought you and Dan mighta been getting a little shaky about me... It's so important to have people on your side right now..
Memphis: You need to keep yourself off the block, girl.
Keesha: What can I promise him? I'm sure he has an idea of who he wants to put up...
Dan comes outside and joins them, fresh from his talk with Jerry. Renny is now upstairs talking to Jerry.
Keesha: There's really not much I can say to Jerry. His mind's made up. Anyways, the nominations aren't important. It's the PoV. (sad) We have to vote out one of our own. (sigh) We went from being completely in control to...
Memphis: The chaos has begun.
Dan: There's only one thing we can be sure of today: one of us is going home.
Keesha: (laughs) It wouldn't be so bad if we were going home, but we're going..
Memphis: To hell!
Keesha agrees with Memphis' assessment of the sequester house and its inhabitants. She feels like they're all chum now.
Keesha: It'll be like feeding us to the sharks.
Dan: He wants one of the 3 of us gone... and he breaks the tie.
Memphis: Whoever wins the PoV can control the vote, if they're off the block... They can take one person off, and that would be the 2 votes.
Dan excuses himself to go take a shower.
Keesha: I am seriously exhausted.. I'm freaking out thinking about this too much.
Memphis and Keesha re-enter the house together.
Jerry & Renny
Jerry: Everyone's trying to save their asses now.
Renny: You have a big decision ahead of you.
Jerry: The whole game comes down to who I put up. Keesha's close to Dan and Memphis, but also to you, Renny Roo. Say I put Memphis and Dan up, who would Keesha keep? Who do you think Keesha thinks will carry her further in the game: you or Memphis?
Jerry: I think Keesha would pick Dan and Memphis (for final 3). She loves you dearly, but I think she'd do that do get herself further along in the game.
Renny: I told her myself: no more alliances. We all have to play for ourselves now.
Jerry goes off on a tangent about Keesha and Memphis not helping with cleaning, then brings it back to game...
Jerry: You work your ass off. I'm a 75 year old man. I'm here now, 'cause I'm not stupid. I've only been hurt by one person in the game: Dan. The rest of you've never hurt me.
Renny: I didn't even want you to go up. I did tell you that I didn't want you to go home...
Jerry: You've all put me up, except Memphis. Twice today, Dan put me up... then Keesha. I have to think about how to get past next week.
Talk turns to chatter about what Jerry will do with the money - it'll all go to his family and an animal shelter.
Jerry: You've always shared with me.. and you've always at least said hello.. At this point, I don't know if that's good or bad for you, but I will give you full consideration. if you do end up on the block, it'll be because it's best for me, in ters of getting to the finals.
Renny: Some people have seriously underestimated you. I...
Jerry: Who won Head of Household twice? Who won PoV?? I'm not stupid.
Renny and Jerry wrap up the conversation with a hug and leave the HoH room together.
BB has delivered the goods: beer and wine, and birthday cake mix for Dan's birthday. Jerry makes the discovery in the Storage Room.
The HGs decide to have the beer tonight and save the wine for tomorrow night. Keesha abstains from the alcohol tonight. She's pooped.
Talk turns to nice chatter about home, family and loved ones for a few minutes. It's a nice break... human time... After a few minutes, talk returns to game, but it's game-talk-lite as they wonder if they'll have a food comp, or maybe luxury. Then they get a little silly.
Jerry: (laughs) Memphis, I know you don't wanna be tied to me for 24 hours! I wish they'd just take us somewhere, instead of doing a comp. What a crazy day it's been.
Memphis: Hopefully we'll have a luxury comp, maybe to go somewhere, or win a cool tv or something.. They haven't given away too much stuff this season... I think they'll do it this week.
Jerry: I think there's gonna be a twist.
Jerry goes into a bit of detail then sums it up with...
Jerry: Oh hell. I don't know. Who the hell knows.
- ***This could be the tag line for the whole season.
Memphis & Jerry
Renny has just excused herself to go to bed. Keesha's already there.
Memphis: Who woulda thought this morning that all this would happen? I kinda liked it.
Jerry: I did too. I tell ya, had I not been going over all those things yesterday, this never would've happened (Jerry getting HoH).
BB: Jerry, please come to the Diary Room.
Jerry goes to the DR. Memphis & Dan head outside to talk privately.
Memphis & Dan
We learn the plan...
Dan: If you were him, what would you try to do?
Memphis: I'm gonna play the "honesty" card. If he asks about you n me, I'm gonna say, I can't promise you the f'in world, Jerry, but Dan put me on the block. That's all I'm gonna say about you. I'm not gonna promise him final 2. If we can make it through this week intact, we're in the f'in money.
Dan: The way we make it is: one of us on, one of us off, and the one that's off has to win the PoV.
- ***That's the plan - in case you were waiting for it. ;) They do realize it may have some kinks...
Dan: ..but if you were Jerry, would you pt Renny up, when you have me n Keesha as options?
Memphis: Jerry'll take the easy way out.
They ponder the notion of striking a deal with Jerry, although they realize the danger in it... With the chances of Jerry not taking the deal and his propensity to tell all...
Dan: We have nothing to lose.
Memphis: I'll have to go in first... talk some sh*t about you.. tell him I don't forgive you for putting me on the block... As long as Renny's on the block, we can vote her out. It's our only hope, dude.
Dan: Then maybe we don't offer him a deal.. but we can't just sit and wait for him to do it...
Memphis: No matter which one of us is on the block, if we win the PoV, Renny goes up. If Keesha's up, I can't take her off... She might flip and vote to keep Renny.
BB: Keesha, please come to the Diary Room.
Jerry, fresh from his DR session, comes outside, beer in hand, and asks if he can join them...
Dan: (wistful) A lot of fallen house guests, Jerry.
Jerry: It seemed like it was so long, but now every thing's happening so fast.
After a few minutes, Dan is called to the DR, and Memphis speaks privately with Jerry, setting the plan into motion... Jerry tells Memphis to come to him again in the morning with his scenario...
This concludes the Overnight Report... partly because BB is now waking the HGs!
