Clean Up on Camera 2 - The Inmates Revolt - "We'll Do Anything For Booze" #BB17

Everyone is ready to break some rules at this point in the game.  They're getting bored....and they still want to drink their boredom away.  But who doesn't, right?  This all happened last night, on Tuesday July 14th, as the house guests waited in vain for libations to be delivered to the Storage Room.

There is a rumor going around that Big Brother is going to put some booze in the storage room for them, with the understanding that they will do some sort of dating "show" or speed dating.  Someone said the DR people thought that might be "compelling", so that gives them all hope that they could be blackout drunk in no time.  Or all split four beers.  Whatever.

There was a big jumbo pizza in the oven, which Jason and Meg immediately pounced on as soon as it came out of the oven.  You can tell it's too hot to eat by the way Meg is working with it.

Liz and Becky are cooking some salmon and vegetables, but Liz is very insecure about her fish-cooking abilities.  She keeps yelling for "Clay-ah!  Clay-ah!  Come here-ah!"  Apparently Clay is the designated cooking consultant around there.

I heard Becky say these were vegetables, so we'll just have to take their word for it.  The cameras all moved away from the kitchen as they were getting ready to load up their plates, so I don't have all of the information that I feel I need about these dinner options.

I did see that the salmon was small filets, with a slice of lemon on top of each one, rather than the whole-side filet like you would buy at Costco.

When the cameras came back to the kitchen (just a few minutes later) all of the eating was over, and Jackie was doing the dishes, with Liz putting things back where they belong.  I guess her salmon was not cooked enough, and she frets that people weren't happy with the raw fish.

(Salmon is supposed to be medium rare.....)

Becky is talking to Austin in the bathroom, giving him surprisingly good advice about the whole Jeff vs. James situation.  If Jeff gets to stay in the house, things are going to get ugly, she says, because lines in the sand have been drawn.

Austin must have told her that he wanted to say something to Jackie about all of the disrespectful comments Jeff makes about her, in hopes of getting her to vote Jeff out on Thursday night.

Becky told him that whatever the situation between Jeff and Jackie is, it is their business and they will need to deal with it between the two of them when this summer is over.

Becky:  You should stay out of it and not get involved.  Believe me, I have seen and heard so many things around here that I've wanted to react to, like I would in my real life.  But I just keep my mouth shut, and hope they (us, the viewers) see the same things I do.

Becky feels like she's ready for booze and the dating show, if that ever happens, but I heard her ask Jackie if her bun "looked stupid".  And speaking of stupid, she then went outside and played pool with Jeff and acted happy about it.

Austin doesn't know, like, if he should like, leave his hair down tonight or like, put it up.  He gave Becky the responsibility for figuring this out.  She took a long time thinking about it and then said he should wear it down tonight.

Austin then spent a lot of time fussing with the flat iron, and spraying his hair with various substances.  He then pulled his hair back on a bun, but I think it is part of his de-frizzing and styling process.

Austin spends more time on his hair then most of the girls in that house.

Liz was taking a shower and talking to whoever walked through the bathroom.  Due to the cheerful chatter, we know this is Liz and not Julia.  As a matter of fact, the camera guys did several close ups of her rear end, letting us all know Thickums is in the house.

She got out of the shower and wrapped that blue towel around her front, holding it closed in the back, and walked across the room to get some lotion or something before going back to the shower stall.  When she got across the room she looked up at the camera and her jaw dropped, remembering that she is on TeeVee.

If the camera was shooting from the other angle (it wasn't on the 4 views we see on the live feeds) then we would have seen a butt shot where the towel didn't meet.

Liz, once safely back in the shower stall:  Oh my god-ah!  I am going to die if anyone saw that-ah!

(The control room has every camera angle, though.  I've told the story before on this website, but I once got to visit the control room during an NBA game that was being televised on Prime Time through a friend in the media.  There were two TV monitors that were 100% focused on the crotches of the NBA dance team girls, and sometimes their chests.  So when I hear about an inappropriate camera shot showing on a live TV show, I am never surprised. Not at all.)

Austin saw that Liz was wearing her green dress and was excited that they both wore the same color.

Liz wishes she knew if the were really going to have the "show" tonight, so she can know if she needs to put on her makeup.

Austin:  You don't need any makeup, Liz.

So, Liz has dark roots, but Julia's dark roots are much longer.  Don't you think the sisters would have both had their hair colored just before coming in the house?  It's kind of a big deal, and much easier than one of them trying to gain 5 pounds, or the other trying to lose 5 pounds.

Clay and James have been trying to pull some stunt in the DR by both going in there.

Jason:  They let you do that?  I walked in there with Day one time and they were like, GET THE FUCK OUT!

James said he crawled in the DR, and hid behind the couch while Clay was about to be interviewed, but he got bounced.

James:  I was back there behind the couch where the box is.

Jason:  They were like, GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM OUR BOXES.

They had to explain to Jason what the box is for...there is a makeup bag for each person that they can use for their on-camera interviews.

Shelli:  You're supposed to use it if you cry.

(Shelli used her's before her pre-season interview with Big Jeff.)

Meg: Or if you look shiny.

Jason:  But how do they know which shade you need for each person's skin?

Shelli acknowledged that was a good question and no one seemed to know the anwer.

Liz came in and someone told her that there was "kissing with tongue" promised if BB gives them some booze tonight.  Liz puckered up as she put on her Eos Mint lip balm.

Everyone in the bedroom was really punchy and there were lots of verbal jabs and laughing.  Clay and Shelli are very flirty with each other, but it feels kind of platonic.  I read somewhere that Clay was telling her that he wanted more from this relationship, and that Shelli laughed and said "you're cute" to him.

She might as well have said "bless your heart, Clay".

Audrey was actually speaking up quite a bit and being pretty funny. She and Clay throw a lot of stones at each other, and Audrey jokes about Clay's big head.

Audrey:  I've actually been worried about you, Clay.  Sometimes when I walk in a room I hold my breath to be sure you get enough oxygen.

Audrey was twirling the chains attached to the wall and James made some suggestive comments about liking her wrist action.

(James better be careful...the vote is expected to be very close on Thursday.)

Steve thought that was funny.  (The big head-oxygen joke, not the wrist action material.)

There was a lot of chatter in the room at one point and the cameras focused in on James and Steve talking.  James thought that Steve could beat him up, but Steve thought that was crazy.

James:  You're bigger than me...

Shelli, jumping in:  But James you've been in the military!

James showed Steve a few "focus points" to cause pain and intimidate people (prisoners, I guess, since that is what James did in the military....just like Caleb).  He wanted to demonstrate one move on Steve's pinky finger but Steve was understandably nervous about it and finally got James to describe it instead of doing it.

There were focus points on the back of your hand while bending the thumb, a spot on the back of the neck, and also a torture spot focus point on the upper lip, pressing into the gum line.

They talked about viral videos, and Audrey wanted Shelli to tickle Clay's foot for several minutes, betting that the video would go viral.

(It probably already has....lots and lots of "foot people" watch Big Brother, since the house guests rarely wear shoes.)

Outside everyone just waited, hoping that as soon as the PopTV show was over, a virtual wave of booze would wash over the house.

(Vanessa:  What is PopTV?  We don't have that at our house.  Everyone: I don't know.)

(It's TVGN, dummies!)

Austin is a real ladies man around there, you know....he is currently juggling romantic entanglements with both Liz and Jackie, but is most concerned with how Liz feels, and doesn't want to upset her.

Austin's imagination is a busy place.  And Jackie saws at her nails in a very loud manner.

Jeff is sitting across from her and they actually have a pleasant conversation as a group.  Jeff described how his front tooth got chipped---some sort of rough housing with a friend while he was drinking a bottle of beer as they were getting liquored up to go out on the town.  Jeff's friend didn't understand why he was upset and didn't want to go out anymore.

Jeff: I thought it was a big deal.

Liz:  It is a big-ah deal-ah!

Earlier I heard Jeff and Jackie talk about how they traveled with a huge security guard on TAR.  Apparently there were issues when they did the "Lady Boy" challenge and another time the security guard almost had to beat up their cab driver.

(If you didn't watch TAR, Jeff had to dress up like a "Lady Boy" (in Thailand, maybe?) and do a dance onstage in front of an all-male audience.  Until he did the dance routine perfectly and got a certain level of applause, he and Jackie could not move on to the next TAR challenge.)

Johnny Mac came over to inspect Jeff's tooth and agreed that, yeah, it's chipped.

Jeff said a dentist said that he was a prime candidate for Invisalign braces, but it would be about $4,500.

Johnny:  Yeah, that's about right.  I have to pay Invisalign $1,700 each time I use the product.

Jeff:  So, can I fly up there and pay you $1,700 for the braces?

Johnny:  Yeah!  Sure.  But you'd have to fly up there a few times.

Someone asked about the chipped tooth.

Johnny:  Oh yeah.  I'd throw that in for free.  That only takes about 5 minutes.

Jeff is thrilled with that.

Clay lifted some iron.

Shelli and Audrey straightened up the purple room, and made up a little musical about it.  Shelli has obviously been in musical theater productions and is able to make up credible lyrics and dance motions right on the spot.  Meg and Jason were the background dancers.  Some of the lyrics were about knowing "this is real" because "Audrey dreamed about it".

It was funny, and probably the sort of cheesy thing that Julie would ask them about on the live show.

Johnny Mac took a little catnap face down on the couch, with his legs hanging off the side.  I think he wanted to be as close as possible to the storage room door in case the liquor got delivered.

Yep, Thickem's is still in the house, the camera crew wanted us to know.  In what universe would this girl be considered "the fat one?"  That is just crazy.


(Wait...don't leave!  ha ha ha ha ha)

After what I wrote above, I went in search of a picture of Jeff dressed up like a Lady Boy from TAR.  First of all, I learned that "Lady Boy" is actually "Ladyboy", but I don't think that is information that I will ever need in life.

I could not find the Ladyboy picture, but I did find a picture of Jeff and his twin, Eric.  They look identical to me....if Eric shaved and fixed his hair like Jeff.  But Jeff does look taller, so maybe that is what makes them look different from each other.

And here are two pictures of Jeff and Jackie from TAR.  I didn't know much about Jeff---Jackie was much more distinctive on camera but I think they both fought a lot....but I really don't remember.

Jeff is technically in this trio of pictures, but it's really about Jackie, isn't it?


  1. You can look up Amazing Race My Way Cabaret in Google, and you'll see Jackie and Jeff in blue costumes

  2. Thanks---I see it, but Getty Images has their stamp right on Jeff's body. I can't tangle with Getty Images.....they will swat me right off the interwebs in about 10 seconds!

  3. Lol at least you get to see how gorgeous he looked!

  4. I had to delete the link to the Getty Images picture. Thank you for your effort, but Getty Images does not play if you post their images without paying.

    Just picture Jeff wearing tons of makeup and a pretty blue dress and that is all the visual you need....

  5. Thank you..I get the After Dark Show but this type of blog really helps me catch up on what is really happening! XooX
