Please take note — this post will cover aspects of Sunday’s episode, but there will also be spoilers based on what’s been happening on the 24-hour feeds and on Big Brother After Dark. The spoilers will follow the main part of the post.
As of Sunday’s show, the HGs have been in the Big Brother house since July 2nd, and a lot has happened since the show premiered last Thursday. For the moment, let’s focus on the aftermath of the HoH competition which was won by Rachel (with Brendon also benefiting). It’s clear that there is already a divide in the house between newbies and veterans, with the new HGs outnumbering the vets 8 – 6. Evel Dick knows they need numbers, and he made some interesting choices to woo to the “dark side.” I can understand Dick’s reasoning on Adam — who so far has annoyed the heck out of me with his DR sessions and his rocker screams — but I’m not sure what he saw in Porsche. The question is: why would any of the newbies even consider jumping ship? They have the numbers.
Unfortunately, Dick misjudged Porsche’s intelligence and didn’t quite explain that the offer he made was only for her and not her team mate Keith, and her blabbing to Keith has put her in trouble with a new alliance that has formed: The Regulators (seriously) — Dominic, Keith, Lawon and Cassi. Not quite the “Angels” Keith was hoping for, but at least he has an alliance. And now that Keith and Porsche find themselves on the block, who has the numbers to stay in the game? I think Porsche revealed that she’s not the sharpest tool in the box (again) by being upset about the nomination because if Rachel keeps her safe, she gets a free ride for the next few weeks. She should have seen the “golden” opportunity coming her way. But more on that in the spoilers below.
This week also saw the first Haves and Have-Nots competition which consisted of the HGs dressing as cows (on the moon!), soaking up milk and having a milkman squeeze the milk out of their foam costumes into six jugs. Out of the three teams playing, the vets won handily followed by Keith’s team. The last place team of Kalia, Lawon, Shelly and Cassi now have to take cold showers, eat slop and sleep in a very well-lit room that looks like a padded cell in an asylum. For a week. Watching the live feeds, the Have-Nots have taken to sleeping with blankets pulled completely over their heads due to the intense, 24-hour lighting.
Besides the competition and the nomination ceremony, there were some pretty amusing quotes as well:
“I felt like Charlie in the Willy Wonka chocolate factory!” — Lawon upon learning of the Big Brother Golden Key
“If we were playing Big Brother in real life all the time, we’d have a fine relationship.” — Dick on his tense real-life relationship with Daniele
“Anytime anyone comes out of the Diary Room, “Wanna see my HoH?”, I don’t care if it’s Rachel, I don’t care if it’s Jesus Christ … I could really give a [bleep].” — Dick
“How do my teeth look?” — Rachel
“Perfect. God knows, you paid enough for them.” — Brendon, Rachel’s fiancé
“I’m on the orange team with Shelly, Cassi and Lawon, so basically I’m on a team full of girls. [ding]” — Kalia before the competion, with an assist from the sound effects department
“What is this? Space Milk Mountain?” — Lawon after seeing the set for the challenge
