Which Houseguests Hath Not?

Today's losers are Dom/Adam and Cassi/Shelly.  America voted to give them jerky and jellybeans.

So this week should be easier for Cassi and Shelly then last week.

It's going to suck being nominated, and being a Have Not, too.  Maybe even for both teams.

Rachel's HOH Photos

The food competition has been underway for some time.  While we wait, you might enjoy perusing Rachel's HOH pictures on the CBS website.  You can see them here.

Meanwhile, Up in the HOH Room

Jeff and Jordan aren't worried about winning food.

I can't hear what they are saying right now...I'm on the phone, on hold with the IRS.

Last Minute Eating

before today's food competition.  They discussed putting teams together so that the same teams who lost last time aren't doomed to another Have Not week.

But this may be the type of competition where they work to earn food for the house.

Brendon laid waste to a nice-looking breakfast burrito.

Kalia got her butt out of bed after Lawon spelled it out for her---she better eat now in case she goes back on slop.  Girlfriend threw off that sleep mask and started working in the kitchen.

Remembering 9-11

The group in the kitchen started talking about September 11th, first as they remembered that Season #2 of Big Brother was in the house.  I didn't hear them mention Monica (her cousin died that day), but they did discuss how BB brought in a TV set to let Nicole, Will and Monica watch some coverage.

(I didn't watch the live feeds back them, but I remember reading on Joker's that the HG knew something was up because no planes had flown overhead for days---the BB house is near a huge airport, so the lack of planes flying was noticiable.)

Anyway, Lawon had moved to New York shortly before 9-11 happened.  He was at the gym when he heard about it and went outside to walk down there.  I think he had to walk down there to get home, but the streets were blocked off.

 Adam, who is a Jersey guy, says that the city changed after that.  People helped each other out and New Yorkers became more caring and compassionate to strangers.  There was a total blackout after 9-11 and people behaved well, where in the past a total blackout would mean intense rioting and looting.

He thinks the City is back to normal, now.

Adam takes the bacon out of the oven, and then puts more on the pan to bake.  It's like food porn, huh?

Porsche asked some questions about 9-11.  She didn't know much about the plane that crash-landed in Pennsylvania, so Shelly described the whole situation, right down to Lisa and Todd Beamer and the "Let's Roll" trademark.  (You know that Todd didn't call his wife, right?  He spoke to an operator, not her.  I'm just sayin'..)

The Bacon Ritual

BB just woke them up--I think they have the food competition today.  Adam is cooking it up to get his fix.  I think the camera guys like this.  Just a guess.

Adam reports he has lost weight since coming in the house, if you can believe that.  Shelly says you can see it in his face.  Brendon tells him he should try to run a footrace--that there are all different sizes and shapes of people who run races.

One of the wake up songs this morning was Maneaters by Nelly Furtado.
