A Few More Rumors..

I read some information recently that was reported by a BB insider on one of the boards I visit.  I know there is a lot of smack talk out there right now but I believe this source, who is very tight-lipped about any further details.

*  The Dynamic Duos will contain two Duos that each contain one Big Brother winner, and one team with no winners.

*  There will only be one Dynamic Duo from each Season.

Meet Porsche Briggs #2

This interview was conducted by Bob for Real Superpass.
She is still wearing that rather unfortunate top she wore on Press Day.  She begins the session by announcing that she is 23, and a VIP Cocktail Waitress.  (I think that means a bottle girl.)  She loves working at Mint lounge and thnks it is the best cocktail lounge in Miami. She's been working there for 2 1/2 years.

She is a big Big Brother fan--its a once in a lifetime kind of show.  She is afraid of being compared to Jen Johnson from BB8 because Jen was very pretty, and said she was a waitress also and a nanny.  She doesn't want people to "get the wrong impression of pretty girls" off the bat.

(Like, you two are the only "really pretty" girls we all know?  And there have been no other "really pretty" girls on BB since Season #8?)

She has a bit of a temper and learns from her mistakes but she hopes she doesn't lose it on anybody in the house.  The last time she got mad was "when someone cheated, and that didn't go over so well".
One of her favorite houseguests was Natalie---I think she means BB11 Natalie, but I guess she could mean BB5 Natalie or BB9 Natalie.  She's not, like, real specific but frankly I don't care for any one of the three choices.

She is on Twitter but is not currently updating it much.  The name on the account is Porsche Miami.  (I'm not going to look that one up but please feel free to do so.)

Her biggest fear of the twist would be having an enemy come in the house. She is learning who her true friends are.  She likes to watch Survivor and Amazing Race because it is a true competition where you have to work hard to win.

The three things she will miss while she is in the house are her friends, her Chihuahua Tequila, and the lifestyle she has--being pretty carefree at a young age. If she wins she is going to use the money to move out of South Florida and maybe starting some sort of small business making short films with her friends.

(I would make fun of that, but she did date Josh Hartnett so who knows who "her friends" are.)

She wants us to know that she is a nice, pretty girl, she is not stuck up, she does not use men, and even though in her profession she gets a lot of perqs, she does appreciate everything she has.  Her strategy in the house is to lay low, stay in the middle and pretty neutral until Week #5 or #6 and she really needs to win.  She doesn't think she can have real friends in the house---she would never give up $500K for a showmance.

She is going to lie about her profession because she thinks people would think she manipulates men for money so she is going to say she is a student.  She doesn't want them to think she has a lot of money.  Being pretty is going to be an intimidation factor with the rest of the girls so she is going to downplay that for a while.

She is going to miss the freedom to do what she wants, when she wants.  If she could take in a luxury item, it would be her dog.  She hopes whoever "meets her at the end has her dog Tequila with them".

One of her biggest accomplishments that she is very proud of is being "pretty much on her own since she was 16", and being "all the way on her own since she was 18".  And now due to the employment choices she has made, she gets to support them--her family is very close.  She thinks she can win because she is friendly and outgoing and loyal and the others will see that.

She has no idea what the twist might be.  She hopes she doesn't cry in the house, but that they are tears of joy near the end.  She doesn't want to hide too much in the house because the  lies would become hard to keep track of .

She thinks she is different from the other beautiful girls in the house because they were all bitches.

(Uh huh.  Just keep talking, Porsche....)

She would love to become America's Player due to the extra money she would get, and she hopes America loves her and picks her to play.  She is very strategic and she wants to win the money.  Once again she brings up Jen Johnson and how she was very pretty, but had a bad attitude and doesn't want people to have the wrong impression.  She is repeating exactly what she said in the beginning!

Her ex-boyfriends could probably care less that she is on the show and probably won't even watch it.  Her current friends are proud of her and can't wait to see what happens.  They are all watching the live feeds.  She is grossed out by "small animals" and she hopes there is no challenges with "small reptiles".

(Uh...don't you have a Chihuahua?  And is a reptile an animal?  Do you mean lizards?  WTF?)

Uh oh.  Now she addresses Janelle directly:

Porsche:  Hey Janelle!  You were a great beautiful blonde on the show and I hope people want to keep me around as long as they did you!

My Thoughts:  She must be very tired.  If she is making so many gaffes in this short of an interview (less than 8 minutes), then how fast is she going to put her foot in her mouth  once in the house?  And do you think she will be pissed when she sees Cassi, who is undoubtedly prettier than she is.....

After watching this, I think she may slap Keith into next Tuesday if he makes any move on her.

Keith Henderson - Reality Whore

So, I learned this morning that Keith Henderson has been on a reality show before---but does it count if it is a show that nobody watched?

He was apparently a contestant on Genuine Ken, which had something to do with Barbie's favorite beau, the Ken Doll.  Here is the link to his contestant summary page.  I guess we should call him "Heartwarming Ken", except that term appears to be trademarked.  Ha ha ha.   It's not exactly GTL or DTF but I guess they tried.

Did anybody watch this show?  Supposedly it was hosted by Whitney Port, from The Hills and The City.  Did Keith win?  I found a You Tube video that was uploaded last December where he goes into detail about what he is looking for, and why he is a great "Ken-testant".  We even see him do a Situation-type reveal with his abs in the video.  He has nice abs.   At no time in the video does he mention that he wants to bang blonde-haired, green-eyed white chicks.

Of course, around this time last year we learned that Matt Hoffman was a contestant on Average Joe, and he turned out to be okay, so let's all keep an open mind about Keith.

Or not.  Ha ha ha.

Happy Hour With Missy (hee hee hee)

I think that Alison Grodner Productions is seriously fucking with us.

I just listened to the June 30th broadcast of Happy Hour on SuperPass--Chelsia wasn't there, so Missy held the stage.  BB4 winner Jun Song was the guest, appearing live at midnight from her bedroom in Belgium.  Jun was a good guest because she tried to say something interesting about each houseguest.  She was also prepared, and had to correct Missy's botched pronunciation of several of the houseguest names, including Cassi ("Casey" per Missy.), Lawon ("Lawson" per Missy.) and Kalia ("Kallie" per Missy.)

Missy said she hadn't had time to "go through everything".  Maybe Missy has dyslexia.  Just sayin'...

Anyway the phones were abuzz with callers trying to determine who the Dynamic Duos are.  Some of the callers pointed out that at least one person from every Dynamic Duo posted on the CBS website has been tweeting in the past week.  I have noted that myself, and was particularly heartbroken to see that Evel Dick tweeted yesterday.

But Missy busted out some information that, while totally obvious, had unfortunately not occurred to me.  Missy said that it is entirely possible that the Dynamic Duos had surrendered their Tweeting capabilities to someone in Production since they are probably in sequester right now.

So...she recommended that we analyze their tweets to see if they sound like they were written by the real people, or someone else.  I'm not going to do that, but I will read evidence that someone else digs up. 

(Basically I am saying Who the Hell Knows about the Dynamic Duos at this point.  I don't want to be heartbroken if they suck, and I am looking forward to that moment on Thursday night when we learn the truth.  I'm sure there will be at least one big shocker for us....hopefully a good shock.)

Jun pointed out that there is so much that Production can do with the Dynamic Duos theme---they can bring in one of them at a time and they have to do a tag-team-type transition into the house.  She also thinks the hard core fans who have been cast this year (i.e. Adam Poch, Shelly Moore) will have a hard time being starstruck by the big characters who could potentially be in the house this year.  They also discussed the rumor that there would be a single previous House Guest who would come in and "crash the party". 

She thinks Dick will chew up and spit out Kalia, and that Adam would be no match for him. 

Michelle from BB10 called in (is that right?  the Portuguese Princess girl?) and said she heard that there were Dynamic Duos under consideration who are not posted on the CBS website.  I think the former houseguests are the best promotion for the new season at this point.  The ones who were obviously not asked to come back in certainly have a lot to say about it.  Jun admitted that she wished it were her.

I also watched/listened to the first episode of Live From the Gremlin Cave, which is a new show hosted by Matt Hoffman on  Matt's co-hosts for the season are going to be Lydia Taveras, Ronnie Talbot, and Annie Whittington.  Howie Gordon was a special guest on the first episode.

There were some technical difficulties with the show that made watching it a challenge at times, but the commentary was very 'spirited' and interesting.  They went through each houseguest and basically ripped them apart.  Matt started with Shelly Moore, saying he hated her the most based on her answers to the canned questions.  The other houseguests fared about the same---everybody hated on all of them except Howie, who was busy eating some sort of meal and commented on "boobies" whenever prompted to do so by Matt.

Lydia kept calling Kalia the "Fat Chyma", which is an example of the low blows they are going to take on this show.  I'm sure Lydia will be kissing Kalia's ass after she is either evicted or wins to appear on her fucking PopTalk show, so she may need to eat those words.

Don't get me wrong, it was entertaining and I will probably watch a few more episodes to see what happens, but I certainly don't feel badly about the smack I talk about the houseguests now.   I know it is too early to tell anything about anybody, just from those stiff and repetitive Q and A sessions, so I try to wait until we really have the chance to observe and listen before I do some hardcore judging.

For example, I feel I've earned the right to detest Ragan.

If I was a previous cast member, I might be just as harsh from the get go.  It is interesting to note that all of Matt's guests, including himself, were losers in the game, including Howie who is a two-time loser.   Annie was the first one to go on her season!  Ronnie didn't even make the jury!  Matt got totally blindsided by his own alliance! 

Jun was much more gracious and diplomatic, and she won her season.  Just sayin'.  I must add that if the worst happens and Jessie and Natalie are included in the BB13 cast, I will tune in just to hear what Lydia has to say about that.  At that point I would only hope that Jessie starts banging somebody on camera and Lydia has to relive her shame and horror over hitting that nasty piece of work.  And CRYING about him, too, as Howie pointed out.  (Every now and then Howie has a lucid moment.)

I watched both shows using Internet Explorer so I couldn't take pictures.  (I usually use Firefox.)  I wish you could see Lydia's make-up, which included blacking out half of her face and holding up a stuffed unicorn the entire time. 

I know both Ronnie and Matt love the game, so I expect to get some insightful play-by-play there.
