Wednesday Morning in the Big Brother 14 House
Happy Wednesday, BB Lovers! It's Wacky Wednesday in the Big Brother 14 house! Last day to get the votes! And.. the lockdown has begun! Let the tension simmer.. Let the tension boil.. Let the Endurance Comp and Coaches entering the game speculation run like wildfire..
The rest of the house is still sleeping, but Boogie and Frank are up for the day..
Feed 1 and 2
Boogie and Frank have woken up and discovered that lockdown has indeed begun..
Boogie: 34 hours.. The only good thing is.. We're in a smaller area.
Frank: Did you get to talk to them last night?
Boogie: No.. but..
Frank: Feel good?
Frank: I knew I shoulda done laundry last night.
Boogie: Major f'in lockdown. Hopefully it's endurance.. And Ian has to step up to the F'in mike.
Frank: Morning, all the live feeders out there.. It is 8:45am west coast.. Morning, Mom. Morning, Nana.. You guys are workin'.. watchin' me maybe.. I know the garbage is full. I'm gonna take it out after I make coffee. This is the day we like to call Wacky Wednesday in the Big Brother house. Its the day before eviction when everybody's scramblin' for votes.
Big Construction noises can be heard..
Frank: Damn! They're doin' monster work out there already.
Boogie: Yeah, I was an idiot. First thing I did was grab my sunglasses to head out, then I heard that.. Unnecessary.
Frank continues his monologue to the feeders..
Frank: I always put a little salty in my coffee.. in the grounds, not the cup.. that's the trick if you're drinking shitty coffee.. a little bit of salt takes the bitterness out.
**I'm sure the people at Pete's are thrilled.
Frank: If something happens and I do get sent home tomorrow, there's 2 gray vnecks out there that you can use for workin out..
Boogie: Thanks.. Man.. This'll be the longest lockdown of the season..
Frank: Seems like we had another 37 hour lockdown for something..
Boogie: We just need less people in here..
Jenn comes thru.
Boogie: Mega Lockdown, Jenn.
Frank: Get ready for an endurance..
Boogie: When Ian says, "I'm not goin anywhere," I'd believe it. I'm gonna be in his face, yellin like a rower coach..
Frank: The good thing is.. The only person you have to worry about..
Boogie: Ashley. If there's one she's gonna win.. But Wil is gonna feel pretty unsafe.. He's gonna go a while. If Danielle keeps you, she'll be the perfect HoH. It's almost guaranteed, she'll put up Wil and Ashley.
Boogie and Frank move to the Arcade Room/Lounge
Frank: WHen I talked to Dan last night, I didn't get any indication he knew me, Danielle and Shane are workin' together.
Boogie: She could have said, don't say anything.. I just can't see him lying to me or to us right now.. that badly.. cuz he knows I'm gonna come hunting.. The other reason.. He knows he has ultimate protection, at least for now, if you stay.
Frank: I told him, obviously the only person I don't wanna be next to at the end is Shane.. I wouldn't mind being next to Danielle.. I don't think Dan would want us sitting next to each other.
Boogie: His reverence of Ian works for you too.. because she might take you instead of him, because of the underdog thing he inspires.. Priority #1 would be - we can nominate Wil and Ashley - Hope his (Shane's) ball doesn't get drawn..
Frank: And if it does, we just send home Wil.
**Target #1 for next week is Shane, but Wil will do as a 2nd option.
Frank: One thing he did say that was good.. He said, I actually know Mike outside of this game a little bit. I don't know those 2 girls...
Boogie: He knows how much Will and I were locked in..
Frank: I don't think it'll happen (the coaches coming in). It's not gonna be fair to us 7 that are left, and all of a sudden they throw 3 people back in the game. There's just so many negatives to how people will feel..
Boogie: I agree. It cheapens it. And people wont buy into the concept of a new season, if they do this. I'm glad you didn't have the public thing with Joe and Janelle.. Cuz last night.. Even the stupid thing with the duck? Those things make Danielle very uncomfortable. I watched her.. and she tensed up the whole time. I think today - Just lots of Shane, Danielle and Britney time.
Frank: If I go home tomorrow.. They're good..
Frank: (he plans to call everyone out on his way out the door, if that happens)
Boogie: What're you gonna say in the speech?
Frank: I'm gonna start off with "Bullying is not ok.." No, wait.. That was my last speech.
Frank: "..love all you guys.. i'll keep you safe.. There've been a lot of tall-tales about me the last week.. For your info, I've had no final 2 deals with anyone..
Boogie: She directly said it to you? You're good? Not through Shane?
Frank: I'm almost positive.. I haven't had a lot of one-on-one time with her.
Boogie: You've got to today. People make it so difficult.. Why not just be direct?
Frank: Because she's an intimidated kid.. and Janelle's an intimidating woman.
Boogie: And Janelle's an intimidating housewife. Intimidating stay at home mom.
**Boogie, you're an ass.
After a few minutes of fishies, the lights are on, and Boogie and Frank are still the only ones we see awake..
Frank: I don't see em doing 2 crap shoots in a row. It probably will be Endurance. .. I think the rope comment was enough to let Dan know..
Boogie: And he knows I will back that up. He can't take that chance.. If we put up Shane and Danielle, then we control the votes.
Frank: If you put up Shane and Danielle, you'd have Wil, Joe and Ashley, cuz I'd be gone.. They're definitely not gonna vote Wil out. But if it's Ash, they might.
Boogie: I'll take that chance. But it could all just f'in go..
Frank: I feel like Dan's a pretty trustworthy guy.
Boogie: I do too.. I just like to have all the cards out on the table, so I don't leave anything out. I don't wanna scare Danielle.. But I'll have Dan communicate the fear.
Frank: Last time I was put up on the block and I stayed, the people I put up were the people who voted against me.
Boogie: Whatever.. Janelle's gonna want to put up 2 of mine, i think. Hopefully, we're not gonna have to worry about it. The problem with Danielle winning? She'll never put up Shane.. I'd prefer Wil winning.. It's a golden opportunity to get him out.. Just the 1st chance we get, we have to get him out. Also, the more time he has to chill out in sequester, the less he'll hold a grudge.
Frank: I don't care if he golds a grudge.
Boogie: You might not need him, but every vote counts. Plus.. The joy it would be in getting out Britney too.. That would feel so good. She needs to Gooooo. He never woulda done it without her input. That's the biggest reason I'm motivated to get her f'in ass out here. She caused herself so much more trouble than necessary this week. Stupid bitch. They could've really shored up the relationship with us, but instead.. They created this divide.. We would've gona after him anyway, but it would've bought them a week. So.. It's a blessing in disguise. It's kind of like Poker.. Right now I have ot play a very calculated game.. Dan knows that. and Dan knows I'm a vindictive son of a bitch.
**we all do.
Boogie: I could say, Look, Britney.. I know things are good, but if I lose my star player and i win the coaches comp, I may have to look elsewhere to fill that spot.
Frank: What if I brought up to her.. I just wanna give you a heads up.. Mike said he would definitely trade if I went home..
Boogie: Let's think about it out loud.. You could say, hey look, Brit.. I feel good about the vote, and I trust you, but you know Boogie.. If I walk out the door on Thursday.. I think he might try to fill my spot..
Ashley passes through.. Frank jokingly quacks at her..
Boogie: Hey, you know you're entitled to be unhappy for 5 minutes in 3 weeks.
Ash: Thanks, Boog.
She crawls back into bed. Boogie and Frank continue plotting at the dining table..
Boogie: Jenn is playing the ultimate 2nd place game.. She can only beat Danielle or Ashley.. She's pretty smart, and she's a good talker.. When she hosted the competition, she's used to performing in front of people. She will crush Danielle in that. I don't know if she could beat Ashley though..
Frank: I think anybody would beat Ashley.
Boogie: Most likely, it's not gonna matter. We just gotta get through this week..
Frank: Everybody's at work right now cursing us for whispering.. turning the volume way up.. Every now and then we should throw in a Hello Hello (loud) Mike Check.
Boogie resumes talking about Jenn and Ian's games.. Frank brings it back to the coming conversation with Britney..
Frank: Do you think Mike'll trade?
Boogie: There's no way he'll trade if I'm still here. THat's exactly what you say! If I'm not...
Frank: Who do you think he'll trade for?? haha.. I do love this game.
Boogie: It was a great twist this year... It has it's bad parts for you guys, but it has it's good parts too..
Frank: Being able to bounce ideas like this is Gooooood.. It's very unique to this season.. And the whole saving a player thing? That's something that's not in our wheelhouse..
Boogie: Britney has to be afraid of my in a coaches competition.. There's been 3 and I really won 2. Who knows what it'll be, but she doesn't ahve ANY confidence going into the coaches comp..
Boogie: Is there any way that it's better to trade for Wil than Shane?
Boogie: But it crushes Britney.
Frank: I could still say the same thing to Janelle..
Boogie: The thing is, Of the 4 coaches.. Britney is the worst by far.
Frank: Oh, I agree.
Boogie: It is extremely tempting, if you can't be here, to have Ian sit in the final 2, with tears in his eyes, explaining how much this means to him, and how much he overcame.. If he can listen to me, and spit that out over 90 seconds, I'll be as good as Obama's speech writer.. But.. I don't know how I'm gonna get him to the end. I think you or Wil can beat him, cuz you guys can also talk. But Shane.. He's not a good talker.. It'd be a David and Goliath thing..
Boogie's already writing Ian's Final 2 speech out loud.. "I've been an outsider my entire life.. and for once I was in the cool kids club.. If you had any idea what it was like to walk in my skin for one day.."
They're floating possibilities for next week.. So far, Britney will definitely be put on alert for a trade, possibly Janelle, and Dan's name has just been thrown into the mix as well..
Boogie: This board is just ripe for the pickin'.
Frank: If Ian wins, you can trade for Wil..
Boogie: Wil or Shane.. it'd be a tough decision..
Joe comes into the kitchen area. Talk turns to the lockdown time. Joe says it started around 4:30am.. Boogie says they probably just waited til everyone came in for the night..
With Joe's presence, talk turns to chatter.. and the HDIC gets to tinkle.
Chatter turns to some good-natured jibes about who'll be there Thursday night..
Frank: No offense, Joe, but hopefully you wont have to worry about that.
While Frank prepares breakfast, Boogie gets his indoor workout on.. Joe leaves the room for a minute..
Boogie: Maybe you could drop in.. "Like a gentleman".. I've played this game "liker a gentleman." My friends would freak.
Frank: (laughs) done.
Chatter in the kitchen about food shows, restaurants, etc.. Boogie, Joe and Frank are still the only HGs up... Every few minutes, talk turns back to the construction noises on the comp outside.. and Endurance!
Dishers, if you haven't gotten the feeds yet this season, I strongly encourage you to get them set up today, well in advance of the expected Endurance Comp tomorrow night. You want to make sure you're good to go, with no technical glitches before the comp starts. Here's the link for the 3 day free trial. You're gonna love em! :0)
Joe's thinking of doing a big dinner tonight, just in case it's his last.. Salmon Cakes are on the menu.. Like Crab Cakes, but with Salmon. Boogie and Frank are already drooling. Boogie comments that if Joe does leave, whoever gets Have Nots next week is gonna be hating life. Talk turns to favorite dishes.. and a wee bit of education from Joe. "Do you know what a Caper is? It's part of a fern.. in Italy.. "
Feed 3 and 4
Frank: These days go by extra slow when you're on the block, huh?
Joe: Especially when you're on the block..
Frank: Touch base.. What's up..
Joe: Can you tell me anything yet?
Frank: So you're still on the fence, huh?
Joe: I have a feeling aint nobody gonna say it straight up this week.. Besides your team.. It's gonna come down to one vote..
Frank: And the freakin' paranoia sets in.. every time you see people talking..
Joe: Last time you were on the block, I think Ash switched 8 times..
Frank: She was definitely on the block.
Joe: The thing about our block is there's no tie breaker.. It's gotta go 3-2 either way.
Joe: It gets more intense.. Less votes.. It gets more intense with the whole coach- team thing too, cuz you gotta try to steal a vote.
Joe: You can't give up on it. You gotta try every possibility.
Frank: Gotta work every angle.
Boogie comes back.. Frank starts talking about a movie with Josh Hartnett..
Frank: It's a really cool movie.. "Someone calls me a horse once, I'll punch him in the nose. Twice, I'll laugh.. Three timers, I'll get a saddle." It's a fun little movie to watch.. Morgan Freeman and Ben Kingley's a good duo. It's also got that chick in it.. She's got dark hair.. She was in that movie with Heath Ledger.. She was also in 50 1st Dates.. no, 40 days and 40 nights.. 40 days is the one with Josh Hartnett where he gives up masturbating for lent..
Talk turns to masturbation. They're all amazed by Wil's 8 in one day.
Joe: I'll never forget the masturbation talk from last night..
Frank: Ian brought up, "what's your record?" I was like, 2 or 3.. Wil's all, "8."
Joe: He says he's got some techniques..
Boogie: That would come in handy in here.
Frank: We're gonna have to have a talk after this show.. He says he's got way to get it done fast too... which would really come in handy in here.
Joe: What was up with the Quacking last night? Ashley took huge offense.. She told him to stop, and then denied she ever heard him.
Frank: I think it was just a late night exhaustion thing.. ♫Stress runnin' high in the BB house..
Joe: I find that the oddest thing about this game so far.. Personalities.. I can't understand how people can get so uptight about such stupid shit.
Frank: F'in sauce or gravy..
Joe: That right there says it all.. You can get attacked over sauce or gravy..
Frank's gone to the restroom.. Boogie puts his head down on the dining table and starts to nod off.. He decides to get back into bed.. Joe heads into the kitchen... Then to storage.. And he begins assembling foods so he can get started on his prep work for tonight's dinner. Then back to the kitchen..
Frank: I just learned all about Toxic Shock Syndrome. It was something to read..
Talk turns to the menu for tonight. Dessert will be an Avocado Cheese Cake.. I'm seriously drooling.
Joe: It looks like Key Lime.. and it's just a hint of Avocado.. You don't want to overpower it with avocado..
Construction noises penetrating the lockdown lead to Endurance Comp talk..
Frank: Startin' work EARLY on the comp! It probably is gonna be endurance.. Neither of us would probably do too well on it anyway.
Joe: Wil and Ash..
Frank: F'in Ian's all gusto on it too.. He could probably sit there for 3 days.
Frank is acting as Joe's sous chef.. stirring and mixing the oatmeal cookie crust for the avocado cheesecake..
Frank: In case you missed the name of the show, this is Baking with Block Buddies!
Joe: You only live once, America. No hard feelings here.
Frank: That's right. I'm gonna go wash my hands real good.
Joe's giving a step by step..
Frank: It's a science, folks, but it's not rocket science.
Ian joins the living..
Ian: Our yard is gone.
Joe: Good morning, Ian..
Ian: Whatchu guys makin?
Joe: Avocado Cheesecake.
Ian: Is everybody else asleep?
Frank: I'ma clean this bowl up with my mouth..
Photos of the cooking show..
Danielle joins the living.. she very carefully tasted the avocado cheesecake, and declares it very good.. Then Wil.. Then Jenn..
Danielle: aww! I had a dream where I was playing the game with all these people from high school taht I didn't like.. Then I had one where all these random people kept getting added to the game.. Like professional Ol.ympic people..
Wil: That's not fair..
11:48am Janelle wakes up and gets her taste of Avocado Cheesecake..
Everybody's up! The only people we haven't seen yet are Britney and Shane.. The more people that wake up, the more talk about the lockdown and the coming endurance comp..
Ashley: I can't believe we're on lockdown already.
Danielle: We've been on lockdown since 4 o clock this morning.
Ashley: it's gonna be intense!
Frank: He's making his last supper.
Boogie: Perception is reality.
Joe goes into the bathroom and tells them he's making his last supper, in case he goes home.. He tells them the menu to oohs and aahs..
I'm going to open an Afternoon Update in about 30 minutes..
