The Overnight Report

Good morning, BB Lovers!! Happy Wednesday! :0) I'm betting we're in for another very big day on the live feeds! Shelly, Shelly Machiavelli will not be going down without a fight.

***Blogger's acting really sketchy in Chrome today. I recommend using a different browser.

It's also HoH Picture day in the Big Brother 13 house, which is always fun, as well as the day Porsche will be writing her blog... I'm really curious to see what she says... All week long, I've imagined Janelle's advice to her was something along the lines of "be as invisible as you can, as long as you can... present yourself as a non-threat both physically and mentally... win nothing until you absolutely have to." It's certainly worked for her. I'm curious to see if she sheds any light on this in her upcoming blog.

With the live eviction tomorrow night, Shelly and Adam have 1 more full day to make sure they're the one staying... In the event Adam should be the unlucky HG walking out the door, I recommend this as his lovely parting gift. ;0) For Shelly, I still need your help. Please have a look around here, scroll down the page, search around and find her something good n funny and message it to me on facebook! OK.. You have your assignment, and I have mine...

Here's a couple of your parting gift ideas for Shelly:
  1. What Would Machiavelli Do?
  2. Trouser Filler - for assistance until she gains back all the weight she's dropped in the house...
Time for me to dive into the flashback machine and start culling and transcribing the Overnight Report! Please refresh this post to check for the first sections right around 5:30am BBT... maybe even a little earlier...

10:19pm BBT
Feed 3 & 4
HoH Room
Kalia & Porsche

The ladies are up in HoH fantasizing about what they'd do with the winnings. And how some of the other HGs don't seem like they need it as much as the 2 of them..

Kalia: I need to be 1st or 2nd so I can furnish my apartment.. waaahhh.. or I need one last luxury competition.
Porsche: Well, no, that's why I gave that to you.
Kalia: I appreciate that. We can furnish our apartments together. Cuz it doesn't even seem like.. Like, I think that everybody here could use the money, but like, (stealth whispering and hand motions, so I'm paraphrasing with liberties) she won before.. Shelly's got megabucks... Adam also talks about traveling.. Not like he seems like he has a lot of money, but he's comfortable.. He's ok.. And then Rachel.. She could probably use it for a home.. Like they're clearly..
Porsche: Yeah.
Kalia: But.. I think about that too.. Like, you and I really need the money.
Porsche: I know. Trust me. I know. And that's the other thing.. Obviously Rachel needs it too, but it's just like...
Kalia: Yeah.
Porsche: But then I think about it.. That's not how it's gonna be spent.
Kalia: I know. I know..
Porsche: So.. then I think about that, and I'm like, No. No no no no...

Porsche and Kalia agree that they don't want to pay for an extravagant wedding or the 12,000 dollar gown they're sure Rachel would buy... Certainly not when Kalia has $300 in her bank account and a mountain of debt.

Feeds 1 & 2
Shelly, Adam & Rachel are playing pool.
Kalia sticks her head out for a moment.

Adam: What time is it?
Kalia: 10:30
Adam: Ohh. I missed it. Fara, I love you, baby. Miss you. See you soon.

Kalia goes in. Jordan comes out. They invite her to play... Funny voices and ball humor..

Shelly: Quit goin' for my balls, loser.
Adam: I went for hers last time.
Shelly: I don't like your balls. I'm takin' em out.
Adam: Heyy.. Hey... That's what she said.

Shelly: C'mon Rachel, put his balls in.
Adam: Woah.
Rachel: I don't have a good shot at Adam's balls.
Adam: (pause) That's what Fara said.

Shelly/Rachel/Jordan/Carolyn: Woah!! hehehe

The laughs continue... If you'd like to watch this Flashback Funny on the live feeds, please go to 10:30pm on Feed 1 for the best angles.

Adam, Porsche, Shelly, Jordan

Flashback Funny of the Season!

Adam: This doesn't feel like my stick.

Porsche: That's what.. Adam said.
Adam: C'mon. Day 60. I forgot what my stick feels like.

Porsche: hehehe
Jordan: Day 60 , I forgot what my stick feels like? Oh, Kruddy! 'Member, (sings) Kruddy's gotta chubby in his pants... (Palm Trees. Skippy must be new and not realize this is an original.) Who came up with that?
Adam: Jeff came up with it.

Jordan: What does it mean when he says "got a chubby in his pants," talkin' about poop?
Adam: No..
Shelly: Talkin' about a hard on.
Jordan: Ooohhhh!!
Shelly: That's what you were singin' that day. That he had a hard on..
Adam: That I had a hard on in my pants...
Jordan: Ohh!! hahahaha!!
Shelly: You never knew that?
Jordan: No!!!
Shelly: You didn't know what a chubby was?
Jordan: Who says that??
Shelly: I guess not Jeff.

Porsche: A chubby's actually like half of a hard on..
Jordan: Really?
Porsche: It's when it starts to get hard, and it's just chubby.
Shelly: That's gotta go on the top 10 list.
Porsche: Day 60. Best moment in the house happens... (Jordan not knowing)
Jordan: Who.. I didn't know that.
Adam: That's right up there with "how can adults have curfews?"
Shelly: Jeff's never said to you, "gah, I'm gettin' a chub?"
Jordan: Never. The only thing I've ever heard is talkin' about chub rub.. ya know when you have fat on your legs, and it rubs together?

This is ongoing for several minutes.. and flippin' hysterical.. I promise you will laugh. Watch this one on flashback. It's worth getting the 3 day free trial, if you don't have the feeds yet. It could well be the flashback funny of the season! :0)

Backyard Couch
Shelly, Kalia, Jordan, Porsche, Adam, Rachel

They gathered HGs are talking about Broadway shows they've seen, which leads Shelly to mention a ballet. Shelly and Jordan's take-away from the classic was rather surprising to me.

Shelly: I've seen The Nutcracker, and that's just like junk right up in your face.

Jordan: For real.
Shelly: It is! I mean, I'm up in the front, like, oh my God, it's gonna pop out and hit me. It's uncomfortable.
Jordan: All you see is..
Shelly: Is nuts.
Kalia: In The Nutcracker.
Shelly: You can't even focus on the darn thing, because all you see are a bunch of packages in front of you.
Jordan: Yeah.
Porsche: Dudes in tights?
Shelly: Yes! And the tights are tight.
Jordan: Tight! Skin Tight!
Shelly: And it's right in front of you.. if you're up front..
Kalia: At least they're wearing dance belts..
Jordan: Or if they're standing sideways, it's like..
Shelly: Boing!!
Jordan: And you're like.. oooh... They need somthin' hard..
Kalia: That would make it worse.. You mean they need to tuck it.
Shelly: They need to make it all one shape..

Bulge talk continues and then develops into a discussion about Lawon and his never wearing underwear and how uncomfortable that was for Kalia during a comp... And then they move on to the Food Comp where they all got hurt and and sick and scarred and ambulances were called... To check this out in the flashback section of the live feeds, start at 11pm on the quad...

11:23pm BBT
All HGs

We've now much into funny burp and fart stories... Click the pic to get to the live feeds log in page, if you've gottem or the 3 day free trial, if you need em.


The Chima Talk.. bits and pieces.. Included because Shelly manages to stick her foot in her mouth with Rachel, so it could impact this game.

They all discuss their memories of Chima's exit.

Jordan: I didn't know what happened until we watched the whole season.. Cuz we had gotten a skill, and I was out here practicing..
Shelly: Natalia and all them were laughing.. She acted like a 3 year old.
Jordan: She was nice.. but just don't get on her bad side.
Adam: Have you talked to her since?
Jordan: I sawl her at this award thing, and she was very nice..
Rachel: She's very nice..
Adam: Does she feel bad about it?
Jordan: Oh, I didn't bring it up. I would never say anything. I left it alone.
Rachel: She feels very bad about it.
Shelly: I would never say a word. (to Rachel) I'd like to see you two go head to head... Chima and You. That would be interesting.
Rachel: Why?

Shelly: Just the way that she, like, she could handle people, and the way that you can talk to people.. It would have been interesting to see you two in the same house.

***Open mouth, insert foot, don't imagine Rachel doesn't get what you really mean, although she's going to play it off... In a good way.

Rachel: Thanks. She's... probably not gonna be asked back.
Adam: Prob'ly not.
Kalia: She might not even be invited to dinner.
Shelly: hahahaha!

11:47pm BBT
All HGs

Jordan and Rachel are talking about how nice some of the fans are... A fan of Jeff and Jordan's sent them Carrie Underwood tickets.. 2nd row! Jordan tells the story of the concert.

Jordan: They're almost too nice. You're like, thank you very much. I appreciate it.. But you feel bad. They're really just nice.. and you feel rude if you don't take it..
Rachel: I have the best fans.. I became friends with a lot of these people too..

Talk turns to the mean stuff. Jordan and Rachel give Shelly some advice.

Shelly: And then there's the mean people.
Rachel: Yeah, but they don't count.
Jordan: you gotta think of it.. Not everybody's gonna like you. Cuz everybody likes certain types of people.. I know you said about Tony. My dad was the same. he would read some of the stuff and get really mad. But you just gotta ignore it.
Shelly: Yeah.
Jordan: If you're yourself, and you acted yourself...
Adam: Anybody who says sh*t.. say go live in that house for 60 days, and then talk to me.
Jordan: Yeah.
Rachel: Yeah.
Jordan: For a lot of people who don't like you, there's a lot of people who do like you, and you can't let that get you down or upset.. I would suggest not reading it for a while.
Rachel: My recommendation? Don't read it ever. They will tell you a million times, Don't get on the internet, and you'll be like, why? I wanna check it out. Don't get on the internet. They say it for a reason. Don't do it. Just don't. Seriously. Just don't. From the bottom of my heart.
Jordan: I think later on it's ok, cuz I've looked and been like, "Man!! That is mean!" But then I'm like, Whatever.. That was a year ago.
Rachel: I wouldn't ever look. Period. Dot com.
Adam: I'm gonna laugh at anybody that hates me.

12:17am BBT

While Adam and Porsche are checking out the Fortune Teller to see if they can get her moving.. No... Rachel gets a visit from a puppy..
Shelly makes a special puppy puppet voice, as if her daughter's stuffed animal is speaking to Rachel.. She pokes him through the space in the wall between their rooms.

Shelly/Puppy: Heya... Can you see me? Can you see me?
Rachel: I can't really see anything. All I see is ears.. It's Shelly's puppy.
Shelly/Puppy: A birdie told me something today...
Rachel: What?
Shelly/Puppy: Check under your pillow.
Rachel: My pillow?

Rachel grabs a flashlight, shines it under her pillow, and..

Rachel: My puppy!! yayyy!
Shelly/Puppy: Puppies stick together.
Rachel: Yayyy!!! Thank you!! Who stole him? This is very curious.. Kalia walks in and doesn't know where he is and all of a sudden he returns? Hm.

**wow. bonus, even.

Shelly/Puppy: Us puppies are happy tonight.

Rachel: Yayyyy!

Feed 3

Adam: Ooooh. This f'ing game.. This f'ing house.. This f'in place.. I know you guys probably like the drama that Shelly causes in this house.. more than you like the nice guy tryin' to play the honest game, but obviously, I'm not playing a completely honest game.. cuz I got deals with..

***Fire Skippy! He just flipped from talking Adam to sleeping Rachel.

12:28am BBT
Feed 1 & 2
Porsche & Kalia

Porsche: I think it's very win comps and decide what you wanna do.
Kalia: But it's also a very week to week thing. And I feel like every week things are different.. Like, we walked into this week one way, completely not expecting to be walking out of it the way we are.
Porsche: Yeah.
Kalia: And um.. But like that kind of thing is very like, it changes and it changes really.. on a dime.
Porsche: Depending on who's here?
Kalia: That.. and just as easy as we make deals? Other people are making deals too.
Porsche: Well, of course.
Kalia: And.. I don't think.. Oh what did you say Rachel asked you again?
Porsche: She asked me who I thought we should keep.. And I was like, there are pros and cons to both.. and as much as Shelly can't win anything, Adam was thrown the only thing he did win. She was like, "I don't believe that. I don't believe he was thrown it." I was like, ok.. Other people do, and whether he did or didn't, how many times did Adam run around the pool with his pants down because Jeff beat him.. Either way.. It's him or someone who hasn't won anything, is pretty manipulative and is still in the final 6.. That's pretty impressive.
Kalia: Right.
Porsche: And um, she was like, yeah.. and I was like, luckily I don't have a vote this week, so it's whatever you guys decide, but Kalia wants to vote however you guys vote.
Kalia: We still haven't had this talk as like a 4some.. and I'm like, why haven't we talked? Is it because it's understood, or is it that we all see it as we're gonna come after each other?
Porsche: Probably. They see it as 2 against 1 next week.
Kalia: Oh, for HoH.
Porsche: mm hmm
Kalia: I think Rachel sees it more that way than Jordan.
Porsche: Rachel will put it onto Jordan.
Kalia: Ehh.. I don't think that Rachel is.. I literally only feel like HoH is against Rachel.
Porsche: mm hmm. I agree. Anyway.. Day 2 is where that starts.. Let's see if these even come off the pages, cuz these are super thin..

They begin studying with the Bible Porsche requested for this purpose.. Almost.

Kalia: The 4 of us need to talk tomorrow.. and make sure this happens. I said to Jordan..
Porsche: Day one, Rachel wins HoH.
Kalia: That was a Saturday?
Porsche: mm hmm
Kalia: Day 3 was Monday?
Porsche: That was the first food comp? No cuz we all had food on the 4th of July.
Kalia: When was the cookie cake fiasco?

They're confused on the early dates. The beginning of the study session is a bit of Who's on 1st, What's on 2nd.. Then they make progress.. If you'd like to watch them studying, go to 12:34am on Feed 1.

1:00am BBT
Feed 1 & 2
Porsche & Kalia

Porsche and Kalia are up in the HoH studying..

Porsche: ok.. second.. Just memorize the days.
Kalia: I can't sit here and memorize 69 days.
Porsche: It's not 69, and you only need to remember like 14 of em.
Kalia: I know, but I'm like..
Porsche: Not 14.. 18 or 20. Ok, the 2nd HoH was odd..
Kalia: The first eviction was on an odd day.
Porsche: Then the noms are always gonna be even..
Kalia: mm hmm
Porsche: Cuz it's gonna be the day after, so it's either gonna be odd or even, flip flop..
Kalia: I get that, but then everything else that week is gonna be odd.
Porsche: And then it switches to evens..
Kalia: on the day of the eviction.
Porsche: mm hmm
Kalia: And then the next HoH is gonna be the same thing.

Porsche: It's gonna be all evens. So the 1st Hoh had odd things, the second HoH had odd things, the 3rd HoH had evens, and it starts the pattern after the 1st week.
Kalia: So only the 1st 2 are odds?
Porsche: The 1st 2 are odds.. then week 3 is evens.. week 4 is odds..
Kalia: So it's just the 1st 2 that are wacky.. Week 5?
Porsche: Starts evens.

Kalia: It's week 5, but that's the week Brendon was evicted. So if the question is, "Brendon's eviction was on evens or odds,"
Porsche: Hold on..
Kalia: It's still gonna be even, but it's coming off of an odd week.

**A very odd week indeed.

Porsche & Kalia

They're trying to figure out what new arguments to make to Jordan and Rachel to make sure they vote Shelly out.
From this, they move on to speculating about possible powers Shelly might have gotten from the Fortune Teller... In this fantasy scenario, Rachel and Shelly go back on the block on Thursday...

2:30am BBT
Feed 3

Adam's having a smoke, shaking his head, holding his head in his hands... He looks worried, and he's not talking, yet... I'm gonna stick with him for a few minutes and see if he does...


Adam: I swear... I swear...

How do we know he's genuinely concerned? He's not talking.

This concludes the Overnight Report. I'll get a Morning Report going as soon as the HGs are conscious and talkative.. :) Happy Wednesday, BB Lovers!

Watch Big Brother 13 on SuperPass!

I wonder if Janelle also told her to "say nothing of your strategy in the DR, in fact say nothing of consequence at all in the DR." Seems like if she is following some great strategy that she ought to at least let America know so they vote for her in the end.

I haven't started reading the TOR yet, but just saw on EW.com that there's a contestant on the new season of Amazing Race named Kaylani, who is from LV. Isn't that the name of one of Rachel's friends? I'm betting it's her, and she's partnered with another LV cocktail waitress named Lisa, so maybe she's also friends with Rachel.
Here's a link to the EW article - http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/08/31/amazing-race-cast-survivor-ethan-jenna/

emelmom - I remember reading or hearing the same thing, that Porsche & Janelle barely know each other.

I agree that the feeds have become pretty boring and there don't seem to be very many ppl in the watermelon dish room either. I'm also having slow BB withdrawal. I miss Jeff, he definatlely added some life to the BB house as well as eye candy.

I wonder if anyone will ever get the fotune teller to speak.

Curious to see what happens today. Love, love, love the bonding between Rach and Jordan. I think Rach accomplished her goal this year, to change the perception that people have of her from last year. I'm really liking this side of her.

emelmom - haven't heard that but would love to hear if anyone else has! Good morning one and all! Thanks Caro for your efforts! No coffee without TOR for me! Ok, confession time: I don't get the foot-in-mouth comment from Shelly to Rachel re: Chima. It could be partly because I haven't had enough coffee or partly because I'm always the one choking on my own foot. As soon as someone explains it to me, I'm sure I'll feel like the proper idiot.

Good Morning Caro

I hope Genie's having fun with the new school year. What grade does she teach?

Emelmom-I heard the same thing about Janelle making a statement that she was acquainted with Porsche but was not friends with her and barely new her. I had to have read it here as I don't go to any other BB sites. I can't remember if it was something Caro or Genie told us or something one of the regulars had posted in the comment section.

I know someone said either Janelle tweeted she didn't really know her or said that, but I have no firsthand knowledge. It seems fishy. i wouldn't put it by Porsche to make that up when they were in the hotel watchin previous seasons

Shelley will do well to take Rachel's advice and not read all the stuff that will be out there on the internet about her. I feel bad for how Rachel must have felt reading all the stuff about herself last year and then finding out how hateful everyone in the house had been behind her back. I thought Brittney and Monay were just as bad as Shelley has been this year, if not worse.

August 31, 2011 at 7:15 AM  
Blogger johnny5 said...

I've softened my dislike for Shelly recently. I really want her to leave thursday, but I think she is probably a much different person outside the house.
The move to turn on J/J at the time she did, with so much game left, was such a bad move that it seemed personal or with spite. All of her actions in the aftermath of that terrible game move, were an attempt to keep her game together

I don't think porsche was laying low no matter what her relationship with janelle was. She started trying to win comps as soon as she was allowed to play after couples. it became alot easier to win a comp once brendan, Dani, and jeff left

Listening to Shelly and Jordon talking about The Nutcracker (aka-Men in Tights) is hysterical.

We used to have the Roadhouse Theater. It wasn't like a stage with rows of seats in front of it. It was very casual and up close. The actors performed on a platform so they were only a few inches higher than the audience. The audience sat in seats that went all the way around the front and both sides of the platform. You were close enough to rest your feet on the stage and reach out and touch the actors. My husband had never been to see a play and I asked him to take me to see Equus. For anyone unfamiliar, there is full nudity-some female but mostly male. Talk about embarrassing. I was fine because that has always been one of my favorite plays so I knew what to expect. My husband kept squirming in his seat the whole time and he never trusted me to choose a play after that.

It seems to happen every time. They are boring for hours on end before showtime and I go to bed and something fun happens. Jordan not knowing what a chubby is, ROFLMBO, best ever.

My children started school yesterday. It's nothing new to them. We've lived in this school district for 2 1/2 years so they aren't new to the school. My youngest is starting 4th grade. She knows the school and has friends so the only change is a new teacher and homeroom. We always give them a ride the first day. She gets very stressed about certain things. After we walked her to the door and said good-bye I saw the look of panic on her face and I knew the tears were going to start so we ended up walking her to her classroom.

It made me think of Shelly and some mother's of the past. I just don't know how they do it. Before anyone thinks I am criticizing, I'm not. I remember people saying that Libra was an unfit mother for leaving her infant twins behind. I defended her. I think if you have a one in fourteen chance of winning a great deal of money, your children may be the biggest motivation. The money can provide a home for them, it can be used to set up a college fund or even to take family vacations and build great memories.

The reality of not being there, hearing their voices or taking them to school, not knowing what's happening and knowing that if there was some terrible accident or emergency you wouldn't be able to reach them right away...much as I don't love Shelly, she is the only parent in the house this year. For that alone, I have finally found a common bond and something that can make me sympathetic towards her.

Hi, All!

Just to chime in on the Janelle/Porsche friendship:

Via Twitter, Janelle was asked if it's true she's "best friends" with Porsche. Janelle answered, "No, that's not true", then Janelle listed her 3 best friends. However, Janelle says she is "friends with Porsche", and Janelle posted a picture of herself and Porsche which she says was "from last Winter when we still worked together."

Just read something that the President may be giving speech on TV at 8:00 P.M. Eastern time. Better check and double check your TV schedules in your area.

Not quite sure how to do this so, hope this doesn't end up being posted twice. Figured twice would be better than not at all. I just read somewhere that there may be a presidntial address to the nation at 8:00ET tonight (Wed 8/31). Be sure to check and double check the TV listings for your particular area.
