Heartbroken #Survivor #Malcolm

OK.  So it's the day after, and I'm heartbroken that Malcolm went home empty handed last night.



Well, I'm pretty sure he had a drink in his hand, and a pocket full of lipstick-covered phone numbers, but he did not win Fan Favorite from Survivor Season #25.

I voted for you Malcolm.  Eight times. 

I guess Jesus didn't want you to win.  (****extreme sarcasm****)

Due to the pre-season spoilers I encountered last summer, I already knew that Malcolm was going to get the boot in the #4 slot, but I still had hopes that he would win Fan Favorite.   These pictures were taken from Malcolm's Ponderosa videos, which are posted on the CBS website.


I'm a Fan, and you are my Favorite, Malcolm.

Me too, Malcolm.  Me too.

***sigh***

Now Dan Can Mist Your Loved Ones

A company in Michigan has created a limited edition "Dan's Mist" candle that you can stuff your family's stockings with this Christmas.  A portion of the proceeds go to charity, of course.


During BB14, we often joked about Dan's Mist, and what it might smell like.  I never would have guessed that the fragrance would contain hints of "asian bamboo".

You can buy a Dan's Mist candle at this link.  But you'd better hurry...before the Mist evaporates...

Rachel Takes Over WE TV

I'm sure you know by now that the Reality Event of the Season was held in September when Rachel Reilly and Brendon Villegas were married in LA.  Their wedding was planned by a Celebrity Wedding Planner for his show My Fair Wedding, which appears on WE TV.

The episode with Brendon and Rachel will be broadcast on Saturday night, December 15th.  I must admit I've never watched WE TV, and had to do some channel surfing to see if my cable provider includes it in my channel line up.  It turns out that Comcast does offer WE TV, but it must be part of some sort of expanded cable option because I'm not allowed to watch it.  So, I guess I can't watch the Brenchel episode in a timely manner on December 15th.

But I'm not too upset about it...turns out that Comcast does offer episodes of My Fair Wedding that I can watch On Demand.  Better late than never.

If you're a Big Brother fan, this show is a must see, since it features a wide variety of reality stars from different reality shows, who were no doubt drunk as shit during the presentation.  And get this:  Matt Hoffman (BB12) officiated the ceremony!

WE TV has an article "written" by Rachel about her bachelorette party in Vegas that you can read at this link.


Still Hungry for Brenchel Wedding News?  Well, enjoy these posts from the FeedWatcher Archive, from last September, replete with boozy Twitter party pictures.

Ian Terry ...tick tock, tick tock....

IAN'S TV APPEARANCE

Ian is keeping his name out there, and the clock is still ticking on his fifteen minutes.  He made an appearance recently on the local Pittsburgh CBS morning news to discuss his time on BB14 with the morning co-hosts.  I don't think either one of the show hosts knew anything about Big Brother, from the sound of their questions, which Ian answered patiently, of course.

Ian was very calm and quite impressive during this appearance.  I'm sure the folks watching back home got the impression that he is a nice young man.  Here are some still pictures of his appearance. 

While Ian was speaking, the station did him dirty by showing this picture on screen, too.  They also discussed Ashley and the TV host asked Ian if he got her phone number.

Hopefully Ian can afford better hairstyles now, with the $504,000 total prize money he received from the show.  ($500,000 grand prize + $3,000 Mike Boogie gift + $1,000 Pandora's Box prize).  I guess Ian's parents had to drive him to the TV station, because he still doesn't have his driver's license yet.  You can watch the video at this link.

IAN'S INTERNET APPEARANCES

Ian took this semester off from school, and is planning to head back to Tulane in January to get his degree back on track.  In the meantime, he's had plenty of time on his hands to watch his BB14 season, and apparently the live feeds from BB14, too.  Here are just a few of the places where Ian has popped up on my computer screen in the last few months.

1.  Rob Cesternino's weekly Survivor podcasts.

Rob Cesternino (Survivor Amazon and All Stars) has a popular website focusing on reality TV and also records several podcasts each week to cover all of the action.  One of his most popular shows is the weekly Survivor Know It All podcast that Rob usually tapes right after the Wednesday night Survivor show.  Ian has been calling into the show every week with his comments about the players and the game.

To Ian's credit, he takes notes and backs up his points and opinions with facts.  He is a big Survivor fan and knows the game very well.  He has a big crush on RC Saint-Amour, a player who was evicted early in the game.  Ian is planning on attending the live Survivor finale on CBS and at one point stated he had a date with RC after the show.  Somehow I doubt that, but I guess anything is possible.
You can download Rob's podcasts here on his website, and also on iTunes.  I always listen to podcasts when I work out, walk my dog, or do housework, but if you live stream Rob's podcast you might get to see Ian on screen when he calls in.  I'm not sure about that, though, but it's worth a try if you are a fan.

2.  Survivor Sucks Website.

On the live feeds, Ian talked about his love for the Survivor Sucks website, and disclosed that he posts there under the name "Flipbox".  He is still using that name, and has been an active poster on the Big Brother threads.  They even have a special thread just for him to use in his discussions about the show.

This website is kind of rough, though, so beware.  The posters take no prisoners and don't pull any punches.  Be careful if you are a Survivor fan, too, if you don't want to see any spoilers.  I already know WAY TOO MUCH about the current Survivor season, and also next season, which has already been taped.

3.  Other Dark Places.

I also heard Ian talk about "4chan" with Dan on the live feeds this year.  I don't have the time to delve into whatever mess that is, but on one of the Survivor Sucks threads about Ian, there was a link to some sort of chat that he participated in that appears to be a 4chan site.  It kind of looks like an underground Reddit board, if that makes sense.

Ian uses the name John Blaze on this thread, and argues about the size of his penis with several of the other posters. 

Yes, you read that correctly.  I'm not going to post a link to that, but I'm sure you can find it yourself if you are motivated enough.  Don't say I didn't warn you.

SuperPass Games - Ian, Frank and (Not) Dan #BB14

Frank, Ian and Dan gathered to play some various party games.  Chelsea, Spicy and Missy did their best to keep it moving and energetic.  Ian even agreed to play, with everyone acknowledging that he's not at his best today.

But the problem was Dan.  He had a super shitty attitude and pretty much made a mockery of the whole thing.  These were silly little games, but it was about being a good sport and playing along.  Dan certainly didn't exhibit good sportsmanship today.  Not a good showing for Coach Dan.  Just sayin'.


They clapped for Ian for giving it a go.  You know, after the hangover vomiting and all.


The first game was called Super Dragon had them each holding two sets of streamers and trying to unravel them.  As you can see Dan didn't do that, using his streamer instead to make a headband.


Then throwing his streamer across the room.


Some of these games are the sort of thing you play at bridal showers, but they would be fun at a little house party too.  You know, while you're boozin'.  The next game was called Skittle Scurry, and they each had on minute to pick up Skittles using only a straw and move them into another bowl.


Ian went first.  Dan made a number of comments, like "Taylor is watching...Do it for Kristin....", etc.


Frank went next, and implemented a pivot step to save time on the transfer.  Frank wanted to go last, but Dan insisted on going last.  We'll soon see why.
 


Then Dan took his turn, and pretended to call his wife and ask her what to do.


Then Dan picked up the bowl of Skittles and threw it across the room, and was pleased that one Skittle went into the bowl.  The girls were all pissed at Dan after that.  They didn't want to step on them and get them smashed all over the wood floors.


Then they had to try and skewer pretzels and Froot Loops with a stick, using only their mouths.  Frank did a bold move by putting skewered Froot Loops inside of his mouth while continuing to work.  By this point Dan wasn't even bothering to participate.




Spicy came over to get the count and had to handle the stick that was in Frank's mouth, saying "she's okay with that" and they all laugh.  Spicy is all tarted up today in a sexy black dress, sashaying around Frank Eudy.  Go Spicy.  Do your thing.


I didn't get a good picture of it, but Chelsea had to come over and sweep the floor while this was all going on.  She didn't want the Skittles to ruin the wood floors, and for them to get sticky. She said she was pissed about it, and it was obvious.  You can see Eddie the camera guy there and they joked that they could just blame the mess on him.


See the label...@Blame_Eddie.  Ha ha ha.  Now the guys wear oven mitts and have to pop balloons with only their hands.  Dan decides to grace the group with his participation on this one.  Maybe he realized he was being a royal pain in the ass.  Frank popped his balloon immediately and Dan mentioned the advantage of having a wrestler father.  

Then they had to wrap themselves up like mummies, in the Dizzy Mummy challenge.  Ian couldn't twirl around on this one, but Dan tried to wrap him up.  Frank was twirling and twirling in his toilet paper.  The girls were cheering him on and Missy, the narrator, was saying things here and there like "Thank you Frank..we're counting on you!"  

Dan protests about them cheering for Frank, but he's got to be kidding, right?  Frank participated in every silly little game and went for it every time.  He was a good sport and if there were three Dans up there today, the entire taping would have been a total waste of time.


Then they did a challenge regarding who could blow the biggest bubble.  They all stuffed gum in their mouths but Ian had to spit it out, saying it tasted nasty.  Frank blew a tiny bubble and he was pronounced the winner.  All Dan did is load up with gum.



The last challenge involved them using Oreo-like cookies that they placed on their foreheads and tried to get them to touch their mouths, using only their heads and facial muscles.   Frank clarified that they didn't have to eat them---they just had to touch their mouth.  Dan just sat there and ate a few cookies, and then berated the crew for not buying actual Oreos...these were a generic cookie.

Ian and Frank really got into it, and the competition got fast and fierce but I think Frank won the point on this game.


No surprise that Frank won the crown today, taking the event.  Ian did as good as he could, under the circumstances.  And Dan...he was a total asshole.

They say that Chef Joe will be there next week and is getting paid $1,000 to shave off his soul patch.  And when Shane and Danielle visit the SuperPass offices, they will compete in games as well, and Frank will have to pass his crown over to them.

Frank jokes about going to get bloody mary's with Ian and Ian just groans. Frank says that Ian is ready for a "good siesta" and Ian agrees.  They all wave good bye.

***SUGGESTION TO THE CREW***    It might have been fun instead to film them walking around in public, like at the Pike Market, to see who recognizes them and how that goes.  I don't know the cost or logistics of a remote shoot like that, but it might be an easier way to fill time and get some value of out of assholes like Dan, who don't want to play.  The dynamics of the group are kind of funny---big tall goofy Frank, and small intense sour Ian working the crowd.  Add in Dan the Attention Hungry Blowhard and you've got a real winner there, I think.

This would probably not be advisable with Shane and Danielle, however.  Hell to the no.  Try to keep the crowd away from them.

SuperPass Lunch with Dan and Frank....Ian Busy Puking #BB14

One of the events scheduled by SuperPass today was a luncheon with Laremy, Ian, Dan and Frank.  Dan tweeted a picture a few minutes before kick-off of their group on the monitor, and we can clearly see Ian is sitting there on the far left--the reflection is in the reverse.

But when the show kicks off we see Laremy, the most excellent and thoughtful host, introducing Frank and Dan.  Laremy says that Ian is a little under the weather, and isn't fit to join them.  They start a tongue in cheek conversation about last night, and Frank mentions Ian had a little trouble walking and needed some help getting around.

(For the winner of BB14 to just not show up after SuperPass hosted the weekend, it is very embarrassing.  Ian apparently can't be trusted without Mommy and Daddy to watch over him.  I have seen people saying online that Frank "got Ian drunk".  I am of the opinion that Ian got himself drunk.  I watched the live chats last night, and he was drinking beer on camera, and Missy even asked him how many he had, due to the borderline rude things he was saying on camera.  If you've watched Ian get drunk on the live feeds, then you know Drunk Ian is not a Nice Ian.)



 Frank:  It was like we went out to make memories, but he drank so much he forgot 'em!



Frank said they had a great seafood dinner, with delicious oysters.  Laremy adds that Frank is very charming to spend time with, and is "like a gentleman".    (We saw that on the live feeds, actually.)  Frank said that he tried to get Dan to go out with them, but he went back to the room.   For some reason Dan starts talking about Kara, saying that he could tell she was a great listener.  He thinks she would have done great in the house, since the game depends on building relationships and trust.

Laremy wonders if maybe Frank trusted Mike a little too much?  Frank says that the started a few campaigns in the house to make it look like Frank wasn't so tight with Mike Boogie, to build bridges with a few other house guests.  But every alliance that they took on ended up screwing them over.  They were the only ones that the other could trust.  All other deals went bad.

Laremy asks them about their favorite pizza toppings.  (I think they are trying to keep the conversation light.)  Dan explains that every Sunday, he and Chelsea like to have "Chub Day" where they go to an early Mass, and then go home and eat all kinds of unhealthy foods.  He likes a superthin crust pizza (from Jeff's or Jet's--not sure) with bacon and onion on it.  Frank likes mushrooms and ham on his pizza pie.  Dan explains that he and Chelsea cook a lot on normal days, and mentions Taco Tuesdays.  His wife's brother Grant comes over for that one.

(I think Dan coached Grant, and he introduced Dan to his big sister.)


Laremy wants to discuss the lunch they are eating now.  He has two cheeseburgers himself, and a salad, but doesn't think he will get to finish it.

This is Frank's lunch, which he describes as a salad with spinach and bacon.  He says he's going to finish it, and eat one of Laremy's burgers after that.

This is Dan's lunch, with no sign of greenery on the plate.  He mentions all the great seafood in Seattle, and says he got a tuna melt.  (Tuna is canned elsewhere, Dan.) 


 Laremy shows us Ian's lunch, saying there is chicken there, and broccoli, with a Diet Coke of course.

SuperPass Live Chat with Dan, Frank and Ian Part 2 #BB14

After the break Missy leads the interview.  (You can see my recap of Part #1 here.)

She jumps right into it by reading a fan question that sounds like it was slamming Frank for being barefoot in the BB house.  Frank said why should he wear shoes if he didn't need to?  Missy asks Frank his shoe size and he says 12.

Dan says his favorite time so far in Seattle was when Frank showed up at the hotel room (Room 116) with his fluffy iconic hair and they all sat down and talked.  He liked that part.  Then Missy put Frank on blast by saying he is the only one who has EVER visited the set who asked where he could use a mirror in the studio.

Frank:  Why you gotta call me out like that?  Everyboy's watchin!

Missy touches The Hair and says she can't see where he trimmed it.  (Missy is TeamIan.)


Dan  takes a question and goes on an on and on about it.  Dominating this part of the chat as well.  Something about why he voted out Joe and not Shane. Dan plugs his new website where he is going to watch the BB episodes for the first time and give his commentary about them as he watches.  I think you can buy access to this important event and he might have guests come in, too.  Dan is a great businessman.  That is for sure.

Mike Boogie told Frank there were some things he needed to see, so he watched some episodes at Mike's house, up until the part where he was evicted.  He hasn't had time to watch the rest yet, but jokes why would he watch it if he wasn't on there?


Ian answers a question by saying he made a Final Two deal with Dan right after the OTEV POV challenge.  Dan can't just let Ian talk, so he pulls out his "Mist" and sprays Ian while he speaks.  Both Ian and Frank say "please no more mist" and Ian said it smelled like orange.



Not content to just spray mist, Dan monopolizes things by telling Missy it's getting hot in there, and he needs to take off his shirt.   Oh ha ha Dan is wearing that same old T-shirt.  He's like fucking Carrot Top on there, with his props and canned jokes.

A caller asked how Dan could read the Bible all of the time and then steal all of those things from the house and sell them?  Dan chuckles that he loves that question and refers to his stolen items as "artifacts that he took to give to the fans".  (Ebay isn't "giving", Dan.)



Missy says that Frank smells really good.   Dan wonders if maybe she smells the Mist, but Missy says no, she's smelling Frank and he smells good.  Ian says Frank does use deodarant and is not stinky.
