Just had to share this tidbit - listening in as I wake up and get caffeinated before I jump in whole hog...
9:12 PM - Have not room, Dan and Danielle
Dan: You have to go on a date with Ian. After her date, he promised not to vote Ashley out.
Danielle: What?! Ok, so, let's make a list. I've done everything you asked me too. Make Shane fall for me. Done. Thrown competitions. Done. Not say anything stupid, be friends with everyone in the house. Done. And NOW you want me to go out with Ian too?!
Dan: I'll get him all worked up after the competition for you.
Danielle: Oh my god. I'll do it, you know I will.. (laughs) Ok, let's negotiate...
Dan: (chuckles) No one negotiates with me, but I'll hear you out.
Danielle: You win the coaches competition tomorrow I'll go on a date with whoever you want. I'll even wear whatever you want.
Dan: Ian. Deal. Fully decked out.
Danielle: The full eyes, the tight dress, whatever you want.
Dan: (laughs) Alright. Deal.
I do love me some Father Dan! It was an adorable little end to their conversation, for sure. :)
9:25 Bathroom dance classes!
(and girls. hee)
And of course - no photo collection of this group is complete without pretty pretty Shane...
Living Room - Dan and Boogie are going over the past week, and what they would have done differently, if anything.
Dan: The only thing I would have done, in hindsight, is not go up to him, but straight to Janelle.
Boogie: When I heard about what happened last night with Jen, I was all over her, barraged her as soon as her eyes were open. She was mad at me, then Frank farted on her, and she was like fuck these guys.. and I'm like baby, baby, baby... and he's like the same...
Dan: (cracking up) He farted on her?
Boogie: I don't know why or how but yeah.. If I had lost Frank because that?!
Dan: Can I ask her about that?!
Boogie: If Danielle had won, what would you have done?
Dan: Thing is, Kara told Janelle that she'd put up Joe and I was like what? Why? Oh my god..
Boogie: That's the thing about this coaching thing, man...
Boogie: I kinda feel bad, I mean, you had it, and then he blew up.. you gotta show a little respect, it's like saying you know more about the game that she does...
Boogie: In all seriousness - tomorrow you're gonna fight for it, just because you don't want willie, but you won't trade?
Dan: No - I like her!
Boogie: if this 6 stay together, it'll start to sink..
Dan: Are you gonna approach Brit
Boogie: Oh yeah laying that down hard tonight.
Dan; how are you gonna approach it?
Boogie: just gonna say look we want to keep our players, and you awnt to dump him. You give him to dan? it doesn't mean we'll go after him. I mean cut your losses and move on with your two others.. its not in her best interests.. I gotta think thank god, he won HOH so is safe, and if you were gonna snatch something...
Boogie: I'd rather play - assuming whatever - I'd rather play you with one and her with two, than her with three, her with three and me with one.
Dan: Him and her go to Britney and say if you take me I'm gonna fuck your team up.. gonna throw everything.. I don't know how
Boogie: if she's got that in her...
Boogie: did you ask her to vote against Kara?
Dan: I told her no way, she'd look like a sell out..
Boogie: did she consider it?
Dan: no way.
They talk briefly about coming into the game..
Dan: And if we come into the game - then the real fun begins...
Dan: What percentage sure are you?
Boogie: I dunno.. twenty?
Dan: Why do we have keyslots then?
Dan: You did save your freakin quarterhorse today
Boogie: Dude, that was huge... and then to be saved from tomorrows problem? Huge...
Boogie: someone's going this week, one of the three. I don't know - if it's the three of us up there, might be better if your not there, and tell her we put her up Danille next week, and lie, to give her a shot at the votes. She just doesn't want to lose Shane if she looses Willie. I'd almost rather take out Shane this week, Willie will take himself out? Do you think Willie can go back?
Dan: no. Shane's fine, he's playing cool..
Boogie: So you rah rah rah and get rid of Willie, captain obvious...
Dan: You need four - you have two and me, that's only three...
Boogie: talk him into it - it'd be a long shot...
Dan: You keep him around...
Boogie: From a game perspective why that might be a better play?
Dan: Yeah - he thinks he's going up - but safe..
Boogie: He's way to comfy... and if he doesn't win the veto and Willie does? he's leaving, he better be real nervous - and the one I like the least of the three of them? JoJo - I'd rather she leave than Willie!
Dan: Yeah, you can beat her anytime. You think you can talk Janelle's team into getting rid of Shane instead of Willie?
Boogie: not tonight. They're too fired up...
They continue trying to figure out what to say and do - what they might bring to Brit...
Boogie: Let's think this out out loud... why would she not trade
Dan: Have to give her something..
Boogie: I know - we don't nominate Shane, we nominate Willie and JoJo, then he's a fifty fifty chance - he has to get into the comp, then win, then save Willie...
Dan: Or just put him up and tell her that you lost control of Frank..
Boogie: Or fuck, I'm not trying to get any alliance there anyway - so might just do it..
Dan: Do you think he threw it?
Boogie: No - too big a risk!
Dan: He's public enemy number one..
Boogie: The way this house was against that crew? You can't afford it - the guys a beast. He hit 6 outa 7 coins in the thing.. Frank missed 4 things... maybe he plays without fear, but I'm not buying it. I want to get into this room and get the talk going before she goes to bed.
Dan: What do you think the most believable up side is..
Boogie: I don't even know what we can offer her... well, we could say - wonder if this would be appealing to her, I don't know if anything besides intimidation would work.. Dan will just have Willie and no problem turning my attention to Shane. I'm fine with Willie - sell her that bill of goods...
Dan: Having him around is not a horrible thing...
boogie: if he were to go... I guess it depends.. if she sends him to Janelle's team, for me personally that's not a horrible thing either - and for you too. You could sell her, hey - if she wins, I got one person, knock Janelle down a peg. She's not gonna waste it on Jen or Ian...
Britney walks through and joins.
Boogie: We're rehashing..
Brit: still on week one woulda?
Boogie: little week two, not gonna lie... little bummed about the coaches thing too..
Brit: You worried?
Boogie: Little bit..
Brit: I don't think anyone would be willing to trade but me...
Dan: Danielle and I have a good relationship.. thats not built in a day...
Boogie: Would you consider, hypothetical, maybe for your game not for a trade, cut your losses with Willie and move on with your more likeable JoJo and Shane..
Brit: numerically it doesn't make sense 3 is better than two
Boogie: Who would you want..
Brit: Not gonna lie, been trying to think about what would make sense since she said it - people have short term memory in this game.
Boogie: Here's the thing though that could happen - the attention as much as its rah rah rah right now against you know who...
(and my internet glitches. heh)
Boogie: Just thinkin out loud here.. there has to be some upside for you, for you not to do it.
Brit: Sure, has to be.
Boogie: So figuring out waht that is.
Brit: There has to be. Not gonna sit by and say yeah I'll take a hit. Specially someone like Willie who can win competitions.
Boogie: Yeah, I guess thats - I mean, if you win, you could just save him and turn him into a nice guy - think it's possible?
Brit: I don't know.. you tell me
Boogie: We're of differing positions - but we both have said we wish we'd picked Willie. He comes back with a big slice of humble pie... I mean, me and Dan aren't obvious players, we're not gonna rah rah against a guy for one argument, I want to think of the week after and the week after. Obviously there's a lynch mob right now
Brit: I feel like there is, and I feel in the coaches group I feel on the outs and like my back is against the wall.
Boogie: I felt that way in the beginning, it obviously shifts a lot. I felt the same way - i didn't even know what was brewing until yesterday morning when I was running.. I was pissed off, I ran 200 and some freakin things... and Frank was like it might come our way and this happen and that happened and maybe going to bed at 11:30.. your out of the loop...
Brit: i'm not out of the stress, I feel like my players this week are the only option and that sucks.
Boogie: Yeah. You have three players, she has three players. Your three came after mine, ehr three saved mine. I'm not gonna mince words. There's the vengence factor, but not necessarily gonna go after Willie just because everyone wants that - the obvious play isn't always the best choice. Don't know what that means to you but I haven't thought through all the scenarios..
Brit: I feel like i have to save one, or lose one.
Boogie: Who would you rather - you'd rather have Shane in the long run, right? You can fire the arrow to the other side next week, it's not like people stick together in here..
Brit: i certainly know that fact. I dunno though - maybe if I made the right trade..
Boogie (and dan)chuckle...
Boogie: Maybe. That option might be afforded to you....
Brit: it's early, how am I the only one in the equation... why do I have only two people to nominate.
Boogie: I think it'd be suicide to go after her this week - unless.. i mean..
--Lessa: drop those hints, boogie.. drop drop drop... hee.
Boogie: look, I'm having trouble looking for upside for you and you're having trouble
Brit: no matter what, you're saying I have to lose someone...
Boogie: They're not gonna let me talk into anything differently.. you win tomorrow and give someone Willie, that will change a LOT.. Maybe..
Brit: You both want to keep your players, right?
Dan: I wouldn't trade mine for anyone.
Boogie: I wouldn't trade. I like other players, but... I don't think I could.. I feel like.. built a trust like you said, and you have to start from fresh, you don't know anything you know? I mean, would I trade Ian for Wil and not be able to trust Wil?
Brit: it's not like I don't like Willie, but I can't..
Brit: Yeah, there's no trust there.
Boogie: He dug his own grave there..
Brit: I mean how many times did I say just stop... calm down...
Boogie: Ego out of control..
Brit: trust goes both ways...
Boogie: the problem with the fuckin contest is that you have to do it right there - which is the only reason I'm bringing it up right now, when we're tired and drained...
Brit: The problem is I'm trying to make it to the end - that looks like a lateral move.
Boogie: I can see that.
Brit: I'm in a real bind.
Meanwhile - Frank and Danielle have been whispering too - Frank assured her she won't be going up, unless Brit wins coach and saves a player and one of the other two wins Veto... then she'd go up but wouldn't go home. He also said the best thing for her would be if Britney won coaches and traded her for Willie, and Dan goes out too... (Caught that while listening to the coaches. hee)
11:08 - Frank please go to the diary room
Dan: This will be the key..
Boogie; yeah, so we can go to bed.
Brit: I don't know what I'm gonna do.
Dan: Upside is you have three players
Brit: downside is they're the only three anyone cares about right now.
Dan: And it changes week to week.
Janelle has joined - conversation has changed...
Janelle: do you think endurance?
Dan: a battle of wills.. not like how many gallons of blood..
Brit: low impact maybe... they always take forever...
They start talking about possible missing items... general chitchat while they wait for Frank to get out of the DR... and talking about Boogie and Janelle's visit to the View, and Erica, so on and so forth... and BB sends us to the kitchen and outside instead. Harumph.
Outside - Willie and Ian play pool
Willie; I thought sure you had that one dude..
Ian: I had no freakin clue man - asking left, right? Might as well ask what color that dude's underwear was...
Willie: It ain't over yet, though. I've seen people hate each other in this game and go all the way to the end.
Ian: I've seen that too.
Willie; So I guess what you wanted to talk to me about has changed..
Ian: I'm not gonna treat you any differently as a person, I know some will, but I ain't gonna treat you or anyone in this house differently because that's not how a human being should treat each other and if anyone has a problem with that, they can take it up with me
Willie; That's how it should be.
--Lessa: IAN <3!
Willie: if I think I might have one or two votes and need one or two more - is there a chance?
Ian: I'd marinate on it - it really depends
Willie: on the situation, don't want to cause anymore
Ian: Depends on a lot of scenarios. I try to give everyone a fair shake.
Willie; What do you think will.
Ian: I don't know - they keep me in the dark
Willie; it couldn't have gone any worse for me (Laughing)
Ian: pretty much worst case scenario..
Willie; I just hope to have the chance at POV
Ian: I hate back dooring. It's the chickenshit way to go..
And we have the camera on the HOH door - it's time!!
11:30 pm Frank: Who wants to see my HOH room?!
The get Ted - and head upstairs
Frank: Let's look at Franks baby mullet!
Frank": here's the mullet action! And jungle juice here on top of the fridge!
And the letter - "It's from the whole family"
The shirt he made that says "Julie Chen is my Homegirl!", pretzle m&ms, almond butter, good coffee, beef jerky, sushi,strawberries, rasberries, the CD - a body pillow
Hi Frankie, I hope your having a great time making new friends (everyone laughs) everyone here is happy for you, nana is writing notes on stragegy you won't see, gunner is gunner, as long as his truck his runing, dad is even watching and you know it's not his cup of tea, know everyone at home is rooting for you, be yourself, and everyone will love you....
Boogie got a new picture of his son...
Boogie: he's bigger, he looks so much bigger, his hairs longer - they grow, it's weird right?
Boogie: I'm happy with the picture. They keep the spotlight where it belongs on the HoH.
Frank: I'm likin it!
Brit: how many beers?
Brit: you can get drunk one night!
11:42 - they're not giving me any decent pictures of the pictures...And as it's general chitchat, everyone starting to get quiet, tired. Long day - and I'm tired as well. So, baring any game talk in the 20 minutes, I'm out. Ya'll mind the critters, and have a great night!
