Tidbits, Trinkets & Trash - October 19th - Live Eviction & HoH #BBOTT

Last night's weekly "full episode" was once again well over an hour long, with no commercial breaks and very little padding.  The weekly episodes begin at the end of last week's episode, in this case with Monte's eviction.  Every week I find myself wondering what CBS' plans are with these BBOTT episodes.  I'm sure they will offer them on the CBS All Access website indefinitely, but I also wonder if they will package the series for TV broadcast overseas somewhere, in countries that are not as uptight about the cursing and other miscellaneous adult content.  (Because they are just letting the F-Bombs fly on these packaged episodes.)

For example, on the Bitch Bible podcast (LOVE IT.), Jackie said that right now they are showing season #3 of the Real Housewives of Orange County on TV in England.  Personally I think BBOTT is a better representation of America than that tired Bravo show, but whatever.


As last night's episode ended, the PoV ceremony had just ended, and then we saw the house guests gathered in the living room, where Scott announced it was now time for the nominees to address the group.

First up is Neeley.  Now, what the hell is this?  After all of the pre-season boasting about her many wigs she would be wearing this summer, THIS is the look Neeley chose to wear for her first time on the block.  Unfortunately she donned the wig during the airing of the full episode, which was broadcast on all four camera views, so we missed seeing that process.  And we missed hearing any feedback that might have been tossed around or murmured among the cast about this look.
