The Morning After Overnight Report
Good morning, BB Lovelies! :0) Happy Thursday! Surprise!
Some habits are hard to break, and since quite a few of you are going to auto pilot here this morning with your coffee, I thought it'd be a nice surprise for you to find a little something.
First off, I'd like to wish a heartfelt congratulations to Andy Herren for his 7-2 win of Big Brother 15! Well played, sir! Well played.
Andy: My biggest advice is be able to adapt week to week in this house... and be in the know.
I stayed up what feels like half the night watching the backyard interviews, and I'm so glad I did. I went into the interviews just needing closure, but I came away with so much more.
After such a rough season, it was great to be able to bring it all full circle with these house guests, and to see the vast majority of them as purely human again.
If you didn't see the interviews, I'm hopeful that they'll be compressed and made available either on cbs.com/bigbrother or cbs.com/connect. They're more than worth watching. As luck would have it, Jeff just said they would be up on cbs.com.. but he didn't specify which link, so try both. ;-)
Michigan Man was up watching too, and sweetheart that he is, he gave his rundown on all the interviews! If you'd like to see, follow this link to the comment section of the Finale Viewing Party Post.
In between interviews, I was chatting with Lessa, and she wanted to make a special Overnight Report appearance too!
Hey Dishers!Time for one last Late Night Lessa shout out for the season... this one certainly had it's highs and lows for all of us. I wish I could have been around more, but I'm ever grateful for the support you all showed me when I could be here - Here's hoping next year I'll be a little more available... AFTER the honeymoon of course!
As for the season, and the winner.. I know it might not surprise some of you, but I am pleased. Andy - love him or hate him - played a hell of a game, and explained himself well. He chose wisely beginning to end, and he deserves every penny of the $500k the government lets him keep after taxes
Love them or hate them all - My hope is that they learn and grow and that we, the viewers give them the benefit of the doubt and remember that under it all, they are human. Unique. Just like us.
But now, as we eagerly await next season, I turn my full attention to the wedding planning. If you'd like to follow along with the madness, bookmark http://becomingulricksen.com and do so - You are all welcome to join the crazy.
For now though, I simply want to express my love and appreciation, not for the support you've shown me - but for the love and adoration and support you've shown Carolyn. She has a soft heart, she does, and I know every kind word was well deserved and greatly appreciated. So thank you - without you all there would be no Dish. And we ALL love our Dish - and most of all, our fearless leading Dishchick.
So, long story not very short at all - much love from Alaska, and see you next year!
~~~*~~~That's all for now! Hope to see you Sunday for the Emmys Viewing Party! Wednesdays for Survivor! And Sundays this fall for The Amazing Race! All during the east coast broadcast time, and Alllll here on BBDish! If you missed the Finale Viewing Party last night, here's the link: Click Me Baby One More Time! ;0)
