The Overnight Report

Good morning, BB Lovers!  Happy Wednesday to you!  We're almost there! :0)  

What a difference a day in the Big Brother house makes.  While Jessie was dead set on exploding the house in our last overnight report, tonight she began with mea culpas.. Perhaps she saw that her strategy was having the opposite of it's desired effect~ it was in fact drawing the other HGs closer to each other.  Ummm..  Oops.  Time for a new strategy.

Following a talk with Amanda on just how to approach this, Jessie begins her Apology Tour... Just as the Wedding is about to begin, she owns up to being completely irrational and attempts to make amends with Elissa.

10:25pm - The wedding begins... They really do look lovely..  If you missed it live, I encourage you to watch this on flashback.  Andy was a hoot as a Vampire Officiant..

Now let's dive in and see what mischief our HGs got into from midnight til bed....

Camera 3
Backyard Couch
Jessie: I wanna think of a name for my alter ego.  I was thinking Evel Jessie. I hope they'll use the Evel Dick music. If they even use it.

Andy comes out.

Andy: Elissa was just trying to make us feel crazy for seeing the psychiatrist on the day everybody had to see the psychiatist.

Jessie: I just hope they do like a montage of all the stuff I did.
Andy: I missed all of it. Even during my HoH week, I miss everything!
Jessie: I feel like the fans will know what I'm doing, but my parents will be like, No No No!

Spencer: Let's think of a good name for your alter ego.. Jessie.. Kruger.
Jessie: Killer Kowalski! I like that one..

Talk turns to texting.. Funny responses..   Then Andy tells them about a service called Grinder, which is a gay hook up thing.. Then they reminisce about AIM.  If you're reading this somewhere other than bbdish, someone's been plagiarizing. come on over to the comment section and tell me who.
Andy: I basically did not major in academics in college. I majored in f*cking with people.
Spencer: I had fun in college, but..
Andy: Yeah, I had a lot of fun, but I also took school really seriously.  I was the kind of guy who if I got an A- on a paper, I'd wanna talk to the professor.
Spencer: If I got a C, I'd be jumpin' for joy.
Elissa: If I got like below a 98, I'd wanna talk to the professor.
Amanda: I was a C student in high school.. It's not that I'm not smart, it's that I don't care.
Spencer: I was the same..
Elissa: I loved school. Not necessarily high school.. I loved college.
Spencer: Tests sucked.. I was like, how dare you try to quiz me on what you know..

BB says something to GM..  They kid around that she's tryin' to make some last minute HoH deals..

BB: Amanda, please go to the Diary Room.
Amanda: I look like a drunk bride now.
Spencer: Is Benny Hill dead?
Andy: I think so.

Amanda goes in, GM comes out..

Elissa: Did you have fun at the wedding?
Andy: I did!

Talk turns to his coming interview with Julie.. 

Andy: Even if people could hear me, Jessie'd be pissed for like 8 minutes, and then she'd be evicted.

BB: Jessie, please locate your transmitter.
Andy: What is she doing?
Gm: Talking to Aaryn.
Elissa: Jessie is now trying to make amends.  What do you think she was doing?
Andy: was upset.  We've got one more day with her..  or Spencer.  Would your head just explode if it was you?  I wanna tell you, don't even pack your bag.  Like put an empty bag by the front door.
Spencer: I keep that bag packed at all times.

Andy: I hate to toot my horn, but I think I am indeed good in DR.  I don't mean I'm funny, I'm efficient, like, I don't have to do a lot of takes.
**fishies. skippy is extra twitchy about mentions of dr tonight.

Ginamarie: That was cool though.  Thanks for the shout out.
Andy: Over half of the house, You are not allowed to talk about production.
Helen: Tomorrow night.. Have Not Happy Hour!  Less than 24 hours away!
Andy: I feel like this week went really quickly.

All agree except for Helen.

Helen: I feel like it went slow.  It's good if it goes fast.  We want the next 50 days to go fast.
Andy: 50?  40 I think.. If it's 90 something, then 30..
**Big Brother wraps on September 18th.

Helen: That wedding was really fun.  I enjoyed that.  What's your favorite part of HoH, ANdy?
Andy: The shower, the bed, hearing from home..
Ginamarie: (lists everything)

Cam 1 and 2
Rainbow Room
McCrae and Jessie

Jessie:  Everybody was really nice.. except Elissa gave me a hard time, but that's to be expected.  It's just not my personality.  It was a strategy, but it's really taxing on me, because it's not my personality.
McCrae: oh yeah.
Jessie: I'm just really glad that I didn't make Helen cry, cuz that would've probably not been good.
McCrae: yeah.  I wonder if they'll use that for the show.
Jessie: I'm hoping that they'll just use last night, and not this morning. Basically my perspective made sense until this morning.. It would suck to have that be my going away episode. A big huge part of me still wants to stay..  Anything could happen I guess.
McCrae: There's still time.  Everything flips in this house all the time.  You just gotta know when.  It's like a catch 22..

Jessie: mm hmm
McCrae: It's tough.  Well, at least you made amends with people.
Jessie: I heard I was pretty much always the target.  Is that true?
McCrae: I have no idea.  I pretty much keep my mouth shut and Amanda tells me what to do.  I start talking to people on Thursday.. Pretty much til then, if I'm not on the block, it doesn't really matter.
If you're reading this somewhere other than bbdish.blogspot.com, the site you're on sucks for copying and pasting my work.. come on over to the comment section and tell me who.
Jessie: You personally, it's been unanious decisions.. That's scary for a prson in my position.. Bu tI feel like it could split.
McCrae:  I dunno.. Spencer seems confident.  Like he doesn't seem like he's worried..
Jessie: At all.
McCrae: Everything changes in this house.
Jessie: I don't see that happening.
McCrae: You gotta be the change..
Jessie: That's hard to do when your lips are sealed and your hands are tied.  Like, I don't know what people want.  Is it a matter of trust??  Competitions??

McCrae: I think deals..
Jessie: I know of one deal I wanna make, but I'm afraid to say it.. Becuase then it turns into a joke, like haha, so n so's trying to make this deal, and it's not even taken seriously.
McCrae: It's a tough position.

Jessie: I just feel like when you're on the block, everythiung you say..
McCrae: Is gonna be used against you.  You should go beg DR for a super secret special power.
Jessie: I was really hoping Andy would get a pandora's box..  There's something about Spencer that people wanna keep him.  Is it personality?
McCrae: I dunno.. You both prettymuch offer the samew deal.
Jessie: Well, I would be willing to sweeten the deal for ya'll.
McCrae: I dont know.. You'd have to talk to Amanda.
Jessie: But then it's, why would ya'll go out on a limb and make enemies..

Amanda enters.

Jessie: I feel like the lesson I learned this week was everybody talks to everybody.. It feels like you have to get the whole house, and not just a few people..
Amanda: Well, you have to get the majority, and then the majority tells the minority.. 
Jessie: Even up to the whole fighting thing, I still heard I was the target.  Do you know any thing about that?
Amanda: As far as I knew from Andy, I thought Spencer was the target. I'm not sure what's happened since then.
Jessie: Well, when I talked to Andy, he said he wasn't the one I needed to talk to, because he doesn't have a vote.  He was like, it's not up to him, it's up to the house..
Amanda: And if there was a tie?
Jessie: He would break it.

Jessie: Like the second I check in with Aaryn or Gm, they're gonna tell Helen and Elissa..  I'm trying to figure out what makes me different from Spencer..
Amanda: TO me, it doesn't matter, because I've never had loyalty to or from either of you.. You were both involved in trying to flip the house on me both times..
Jessie: I feel like, because we've never had that trust, even if I were to offer you something, that wouldn't do too much for you.
Amanda: From a personal standpoint, I don't feel like you help my game.  I know, to you, I'm a threat, and if I were you, I'd want to get me out too.
Jessie: Now it's different.. To me you're like a new frontier.. a fresh start.. Like, even though we've patched things up, I'm never gonna be able to trust them.

Amanda: This week, when you told Aaryn you had a big plan, did it have to do with me?
Jessie: I pitched Andy, and it had to do with you, McCrae, Helen and Elissa, because I heard you were in a final 4 deal. If I were able to get somewhere with them.. and then come back to you..
Amanda: I don't wanna blindside Helen and Elissa
McCrae: or Andy..

Amanda: Well, talk to them.  I'm not gonna talk to them for you.
Jessie: With Gm, I think she's loyal to one person, and I don't know who that one person is.. I feel like if I talk to Aaryn, she's just gonna tell Helen and ELissa, so I might as well start with them.  Okie dokie..
AManda: Good luck.
Jessie: I need it.

Jessie leaves... Whispering begins..

McCrae: Where'd you go??? She was here for ages..
Amanda: Same shit?
McCrae: Yeah..

Amanda: Kiss me, Onion mouth.

Timecheck -- 12:48am

Jessie has gone straight up to HoH, where Helen, Gm and Andy are.. Elissa joins as well.

Andy: Do you think Rachel's watching the live feeds?
Elissa: If she's commentating, maybe..

Andy: We're either gonna have no (more) double evictions, and they bring someone back, or we'll have another double eviction, and they wont bring anyone back. 

Elissa says goodnight and heads to bed.

Jessie: I wonder if they would compete to come back..
Ginamarie: I wonder if they pick Have Not Food.
Helen: I wonder if they are, cuz it went from really good to really awful..
Andy: That's a really lame way to keep them in the game.

Helen: I wonder if Julie Chen will come into the house.
Spencer: She hasn't in 15 seasons.

Talk turns to Zingbot.. whom they expect to see soon..  and then the comp with America's opinions about them.

Cam 3

Helen: Who's the biggest dork?  I think I am.. but they might have thought you, because you're tall and lanky.
Andy: Whatever.. All I wrote on my blog was "f*ck you, America, from, The Dork.." And I was like, I'm done.  If there's one thing you don't call someone from Illinois, it's a dork.  Oh my God.. Aaryn.. That was so absurd.  That was the first fight, I think..

Andy and Spencer tell Helen all about it.  She'd never heard the whole mad-hatter story...  Then they tell Helen where crab shack came from.  Ginamarie goes off..

She cannot resist any opportunity to cast aspersions on Candice..  The others are amused by just how much gm hates Candice.  If you're reading this somewhere other than bbdish.blogspot.com, the site you're on doesn't deserve you. they just copy and paste my work.. come on over to the comment section and tell me who.
Spencer: Gm do you think you and Candice will stay in touch after this?
Ginamarie: My stepfather already took care of that.
Andy: There is no more Candice.

Andy: I forget, does the jury each get to question the finalists?
Spencer: Best jury question ever to me was Brenda's question to Dawn on Survivor..

They tell the story of Dawn's missing teeth.. and the intense moment..

Helen: Wowwww.. That's unbelievable.  That's awful.
Andy: That was a really good season of Survivor.
Spencer: i liked it too.
Ginamarie: That's like one of the 1st reality shows ever.
**it came after bb...  and the first was Real World.

Talk turns to reality shows..  and people from other reality shows.. Naonka...


They wonder about the jury house.. Gm wonders if she'll get her clothes back..
Gm: Do you guys think Kaitlin and Jeremy talk right now?
Andy: Yeah.. I wonder who the 1st 5 evicted are rooting for..

Helen says goodnight.

Andy: Survivor's had a ton of people.. Big Brother's smaller.. What's 14 times 13?
ALL: (silent)
Andy: (figures it out on his leg, subtracts for retreads) About 170?  How many seasons have you seen, Ginamarie?
Ginamarie: I seen one at my house and and 2 at camp..
Andy: Your favorite player of all time?  Besides Candice?
Gm: I don't even know how she got on the show..
Andy: It was all kind of cryptic..
Spencer: They found her like 2 years ago, and she was called 2 weeks before the show..

Andy: It really does hook you in.. Like, I get excited about it.
Spencer: I'd call in sick to work on finale nights... and people would make fun of me.. Spencer aint here cuz his soap opera's on..
Andy: I do feel like it's gonna be overwhelming to catch up with life after this.. I feel

Ginamarie: I can't wait!  The clubs are gonna be opened up.  People gonna be sweatin' my shit like always.. I'm gonna marry Nick in a year. You'll see. Candice is not allowed.  She can be the janitor.  If she wasn't such a nasty bitch, I wouldn't be one back.
Spencer: You do not like her at all.

Ginamarie rips the tag off a pillow, "because it's illegal."
**i'd say something, but it's unkind to mock the mentally challenged.

Andy: Omg.. We've only got 2 more days to hear Christmas Shoes. The best song ever.
Ginamarie: It's the saddest song ever.
Andy:  You know it?  It's so awesome.
Spencer: And it's seasonally sad too.. They can only play it from after Thanksgiving til January..
Ginamarie: ♫Can I buy these shoes...

Andy: We wont have to sing anymore if you'd just play it.  Without a doubt, Helen will cry.

Timecheck 1:26am

Spencer: Is there anyone in particular in the house that's driving you crazy?  Then she's like, Oh, sorry, I can't ask that.
Andy: I'm positive that America thinks she's the feistiest houseguest.
Spencer: Ever.
Andy: She just timed it well, during comps, during the live show, house meeting.. What we saw was her sleeping 85% of the day.. Just that whole week was so ridiculous..

Ginamarie goes off about how Candice had no class, and makes another mother dig.. and I go to check in on Amanda and McCrae..

Cam 1
Amanda and McCrae

McCrae: It's gonna get down to the final 4, and then it's gonna get shitty.  You have to start winning comps.
Amanda: i know.. and I haven't thrown anything.
McCrae: I have to win again too..

Amanda: You're totally not gonna take me to final 2.. I can see it in your face.
McCrae: I totally would.  And you'd f'in win.
Amanda: I am sorta your shield though.. I feel like people will go after me.
McCrae: They'll go after me, because you're the bigger target.

Amanda: I swear on my life I would take you to final 2.  It wouldn't even be a hesitation.

low whispering..

Amanda: Yeah, but she doesn't even deserve 50,000. They'll give her America's Player or something.. There has to be some sort of stipulation.. She sucks!!!
McCrae; They get money from people who vote.
Amanda: So no matter what, she's gonna get America's Player.
McCrae: The only way is to get her out earlier.. so someone else has more fans by the end of the show.

They speculate about who else might be in the running for the fan favorite 25k. 

Amanda: If you backdoored Helen, that would be a cool move.
McCrae: Yeah, but..
Amanda: You don't feel like it's your move?  If you did it, it would be..  If Ginamarie gets HoH..
McCrae: You f'in planner..
Amanda: I feel like it doesn't matter til we now who HoH is.
**i concur.

1:42am Flipping back up to HoH on Camera 3, Andy's telling Jessie about Chicago.. and areas to avoid late at night.


Cam 3

Jessie's sitting by the jacuzzi, smoking and thinking.. Andy comes out to get his clothes from the dryer.

Jessie: Hey Andy..
Andy: Yeah?
Jessie: I have something that I want to offer.
Andy: Gimme 1 second.

Jessie: I know that I really messed up this week.(**fishies)
Andy: I saw that you're better with Helen and Elissa..

Jessie: I just feel like Spencer's done a really good job of laying low.. The things that happened with Helen and me yesterday, I feel like the moving company's ancient history.  I was in rare form.  I'm sorry.  I feel like the house just got to me.  I should've had more respect for you as HoH.
Andy: I told the house what I wanted.. But I don't have a vote..
Jessie: I'm just saying, that's what I would do.. To buy myself a little more time.   Do you think it makes sense?
Andy: Yeah.
Jessie: I have talked to a few people and the general consensus is nobody cares who goes as long as it's not them.  Just what the majority wants.. So hopefully if I pitch that.. cuz it's something the whole house could benefit from.
Andy: Yeah.. OK.. Goodnight.

Cut to:
Cam 1

Amanda: Did you just throw a lubed banana at us?

Ginamarie sticks it down her pants..

Ginamarie: One more day we'll be back in here..
Amanda: Hopefully we'll have a food comp.

Aaryn: Ok..  You're the mastermind, you're the enforcer, I'm the agent and Andy's the beast.

Amanda leaves the room..  goes next door to the Chair Room.. (it's an interesting flashback  - 2:01am - Cam 3- all about how being in the BB house feels to the HGs..)

McCrae: Next week is gonna be weird.. Ginamarie's gonna go up..
Aaryn: She told me she's not gonna go after me for 2 weeks..
McCrae: She might not. 

Aaryn: Obviously, I don't wanna go up.  It's f'ing scary.
McCrae: Of course. But you'll have me, Amanda and Andy..  I wanted to run it by you.
Aaryn: Well, I think if Elissa gets it, she'll put me up as a replacement.. If Helen gets it, she'll put me up as a replacement probably.
McCrae: Amanda and I were talking, and we basically have a 2 week window to get out Helen..

Cam 1
Amanda and McCrae
Rainbow Room
Amanda: I think that.. Spencer would go over Elissa..
McCrae: you would want him to go?
Amanda: yeah.. we can't trust him.. we can trust Elissa more.. plus, if we get rid of Elissa over Spencer, we lose the trust of Helen.
McCrae: If Helen wins the Veto, we'd have to convince her not to use it..

**Welcome to Speculation Theatre with Amanda and McCrae..

We'll leave them to it.  Everyone else is asleep now...

Jessie comes outside for a soak n smoke..

Then back to bed..

And this concludes the Overnight Report.  See you when BB wakes the HGs!



Blogger Jerry said...

Well, back to the starting point. Too bad Jessie didn't have a better understanding of who was doing what, and the ability to articulate it.

I just wonder if the end results of her activities might make it more likely that Andy would want to keep Helen around.

At any rate we should see a power player on the block this week. It will be interesting to see which direction they all lean.

I think the first reality show was on PBS in the 70s or 80s? But you are right reality as we know it, started with the Real World. Think of the first season to now (I can't even watch now) and how much it has changed. It went from a good reality to show to basically just a show about drunk kids having sex and fighting. Blah.

Hello everyone, thankyou carolyn for always posting updates, this is my first time commenting, I have to say I am really tired of the Candice bashing! It's really getting from bad to worse, the funny thing is they all say candice hardly ever spoke to them and the only incidents they keep coming back to Re the keeping it real house meeting, the amanda quarrel and her eviction. They make her seem as though she quarreled All summer, then they call her all sorts do horrid things, except for elissa i guess, I recently watched a Candice bullying video on YouTube, from the 4 th day in the house aaryn was on Candice over hat! I have to say they need to just get over the hate and focus on the game cuz right now they are all lousy players to me.

Good morning Carolyn

Po-ta-to Po-tah-to on the bullying by/of Jessie.

I think when a whole group of people sit in a room talking and laughing about you while you find out you have been the punch line of a joke, it is probably pretty soul crushing. All day yesterday the guy were talking about how funny the meltdown was and were encouraging people to fight with Jessie.

I know the blindside of Jessie is part of the game and I don't have an issue with it, but I can't blame the girl for being hurt. Jessie had absolutely no chance to turn it around. If someone else decides that they need her in the game it won't be because of anything she says or does.

I don't technically think anything that happened can be considered bullying but let's compare. Jessie followed Elissa. Ooh, scary. (Seems to me, I remember Elissa's sister doing the same thing to Dani a couple years ago.) She didn't physically threaten her.

Jessie taunted the have nots with the smell of bacon. O.K. I guess that would be considered bullying....if you are a pig.

Name calling-well, there has been a lot of it from a lot of people. I have heard people refer to Jessie as T-Rex because of the shape of her body (which is something she has no control over). But I will stick to this most recent fight. Elissa accused Jessie of being on drugs and said she had been complaining about how unfair it is that certain people in the house are allowed to use adderall. How does Elissa know that? Because she was complaining about it right along side Jessie. She didn't mention that. Elssa spent the rest of the night and into the next day talking about Jessie's erratic behavior, her desire to take drugs and talked about everyone else's mental disorders. Jessie called Elissa 'Rachel's shadow.'

In the bullying war of words let's weigh. Erratic drug-using mental case vs. Rachel's shadow. I mean, I guess it's all in the perception. Frankly, I think the term bullying is way over used anyways. I would have to wonder how a bullied teen would feel to have what Jessie was doing yesterday labeled as bullying.

Actually, I was kind of disappointed in the whole thing anyways. Rachel's shadow. Is that really the best insult Jessie could come up with. I mean, seriously...haven't we all been thinking that since the season started.

Hi Carolyn! Hi Everyone! I've been reading but not commenting the past few weeks - lots of junk going on at home. The one thing I keep wondering about is WHY Amanda and McCrae keep having sex in the house? Is it really necessary? REALLY? I can understand a moment of "passion" and getting carried away, but ick. I don't want to know about that every night! And it amazes me that they've been able to both stay in the house - that the other HGs "let" them continue to be a couple and play together. How close to the end have any other showmances gotten together, does anyone know?

Good afternoon Carolyn & friends!

These past few days have been hellish and I haven't been able tho get on the feeds. I have chronic debilitating migraine disease as well as a stomach condition and exhaustion, I also am in recovery so if I do feel OK, the bar just isn't my scene. Being 29 and on disability, unable to work, unmarried, no kids, was not the life I saw for myself and its easy to let myself get depressed if I allow it...

But you all allow me to be part of a community where none of that matters. And Carolyn, when I'm too sick to watch I can read your wonderful summaries as I am able. I want you to know it is much appreciated.

Grendolyn, I think you are spot on. Bullying is the new catch phrase. Just because someone is rude or mean doesn't mean its bullying. If you have expiereced it, you know the difference. Heck, watching Candice the difference should be obvious.

Where do you all go on the feeds to chat and feel "safe"? There is so much hate out there, do we have a room? Could we? :::newbie here:::

Hugs, Andrea

Hi Andrea :)) I'm so glad to have you as part of our very special community.

There is a BBDish chat room on the feeds, but I cannot guarantee safety there.. too many non-dishers invade. Here, right here in comments, is the safest place to be.

I never go on chat. I feel safer and more supported here, even the times that we don't all agree. Besides, I usually have too much to say for the chat format to work for me. As people here can attest to, I tend to be long winded at times.

The reason your post really caught my attention was your disability. I am not familiar with your condition but do know how hard it can be on someone to deal with chronic pain. Since I don't know about your condition I do not know if you have periods of remission or good and bad days. I hope that there are lulls and good days because I know how easy it is to fall into depression.

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis when I was 27. I had a severe case meaning that it progressed very quickly and did a lot of damage in a short amount of time. I was working when I was diagnosed but after 3 years could not continue. I am also on disability.

I was living with my husband when I was diagnosed with the RA. We got married 16 months later. I put off having children but finally decided that where there is a will there is a way. I had my first child 6 years after getting married and my second child 4 1/2 years later. I tend to look at the RA as a blessing and a curse. I would love to not have this illness, yet if I was not on disability I would not have been able to stay home with my children. That is something I wouldn't trade for all the world.

I have had migraine headaches before and know how debilitating they can be. But I did not have them steady or regularly so I knew there was always relief in sight. As I'm not familiar with your illness I hope you don't think I am telling you to 'shake it off' or that I am taking it lightly. I just hope that you don't give up on your dreams, especially if your dream is to have a family.
