UPDATE: Hayden Moss Keeps it Classy #Survivor

I watched Hayden's post-finale interview with Parvati, and listened to his interview with Rob Cesternino.  As expected, Hayden was a good sport and was gracious to the other Blood vs. Water players.

Hayden had to share all of his interviews with Laura, since they were the fifth and sixth players voted out of the game.  Only the Final Three were allowed to have one-on-one interviews----CBS sets the rules and everybody has to play by them. 

Of course the most noticeable thing about Hayden was his short haircut.  It was sort of a shock to see Hayden with short hair, but even with a bald head Hayden would be handsome.  No one in the game has any beef with Hayden.  His social skills come naturally and the fact that he turned up the heat in the last few weeks of the game mean that he will likely be back on the island later this year when they film the next two seasons of the game.  (Just a guess.)

The Blood vs. Water format was very popular and added new layers to the game, so I wouldn't be surprised if they repeat it next year.  Hayden has a sister who is or was a rodeo rider, so that might be an interesting choice for a playing partner.

Hayden announced that he has an iPhone app coming in the next few weeks.  I think the name is "divvie" and it sounds very interesting.  From what Hayden said, the new app allows you to send someone a short video clip, and they can add to it and send it to the next person.  At the end of the video each person in the chain sees the entire video. 

In all of his interviews, when the subject of Kat's ridiculous comments during the Finale came up, Hayden took the high road and did not elaborate regarding her plastic surgery.  Parvati pushed him on it and he finally gave Kat's surgery "two thumbs up". 



In Tina's finale interview with Parvati, she backtracked about her comments during the season about wanting to set Katie up with Vytas.  She commented that women were a "dime a dozen" to Vytas, and she had her eye on Hayden as a future husband for Katie.

Tina said Hayden was a gentleman, and that "whatever his momma did, she did right".  Tina brushed off Parvati's mention of Kat being Hayden's girlfriend and repeated that she's "got her eye on Hayden for Katie".

Hmmmm.  Interesting, huh?

I also watched a "Secret Scene" with Hayden taped after his torch was snuffed.  He went on and on about how great his relationship with Kat is, and how much he loves and misses her.  He went as far as to say she "might be the one".   I wonder how things will play out now that the game is officially over.  Hayden is going to make a big splash now, and get a lot of attention from everyone, everywhere.

There were several times in the last few episodes of the season where Hayden looked like an action star to me.  You know, on the big screen.  If Hayden doesn't have an agent, he might consider getting one.... getting a role in a movie could make that Survivor prize money look like chump change.

Just a thought.  You can see all of Parvati's interviews, as well as the Secret Scenes and Ponderosa footage on the CBS website.

Who is the Survivor Player of the Season? Get on the Hay-Train... #RHAP #Survivor

If you are a Survivor fan, then you know that for years now the viewers have voted in the last week of the Survivor season for our Fan Favorite, which has always been sponsored by Sprint.   It's been a big deal in the past to win Fan Favorite...the lucky winner takes home an extra $100,000 and the first year the Fan Favorite concept was introduced, the Fan Favorite won $1,000,000.  (I try to forget that this winner was Rupert....who admitted blowing all of the money within a few years, but whatever....) 

So it's kind of a surprise that the Survivor Blood vs. Water season hasn't advertised any Fan Favorite voting action.  Maybe Sprint broke up with Survivor.

Reality TV guru (and two-time former Survivor contestant) Rob Cesternino is trying to step in and do the right thing by allowing the fans to vote for the RHAP Player of the Season.  The Player of the Season will receive a variety of valuable prizes awarded by Rob after the Survivor finale tomorrow night, live on Rob's Survivor Know-It-Alls podcast. 

You can smirk at the list of valuable prizes, and vote for your RHAP Player of the Season here. You can vote until 8:00 PM EST on Sunday, December 15th.

Of course, the correct Player of the Season is Hayden Moss.  But you can certainly feel free to vote however you would like.  It's a democracy, after all.

But after the excitement and drama that Hayden has given us in the last two Tribal Councils, how could you vote for anybody else?  And let's not forget, Hayden is the hottest contestant, hands down.


Hayden won the RHAP Player of the Season award!  Well deserved, of course.

Julie Chen Was Howard Stern's Homegirl Yesterday #BigBrother

Yesterday our own Julie Chen, aka The Chenbot, visited the Howard Stern Show with her friend and co-host of The Talk Sharon Osborne.

This visit is shocking for several reasons, the first of which is the history of bad blood Howard has with Julie's husband Les Moonves.  Les is President of CBS which owned K-Rock, the radio station that was Howard's home base before he left to join Sirius Satellite radio.  In the last months of Howard's K-Rock contract, management forbade Howard from saying the word "Sirius" (he said "unh unh unh" instead) and then things deteriorated further after Howard's new show started airing on Sirius.

I forget all of the gory details, but basically CBS refused to give Howard the rights to all of his former broadcasts, accused him of hurting their business and yadda yadda yadda I think both parties sued each other.  Howard went nuts on the radio with all sorts of veiled threats about Les, and how he would expose information he had about Les' personal life.  Howard also appeared in public in 2006 wearing this custom-made T-shirt. 

At least that is a very flattering picture of Julie, huh?

So I was quite surprised to hear that Julie was visiting Howard's show today with Sharon Osborne.  Sharon, of course, has quite a history with Howard, having appeared on his show with her family dozens of times in the past decade.  She also was a judge with Howard on America's Got Talent so they have spent quite a bit of time together.

I made some notes while I listened to the interview, and was quite shocked by what I heard from The Chenbot.   I am not even going to try and repeat word-by-word what was said, because I don't want that sort of web traffic.  (You might be very surprised what search terms the pervs use on Google---it really is horrifying.)  If you don't know, Sirius satellite is uncensored, so any sort of language is generally tolerated and is never bleeped out.  Sometimes Howard will use the delay to blank out statements that could be litigious, but dirty language is certainly allowed.

OK.  Here are the highlights of the conversation.

*  At first I didn't recognize Julie's voice.  It was very low, slow, and her words sounded measured, like she was carefully considering everything she said.  Howard started in on Sharon about her recent public revelations about her vaginal rejuvination surgery (I didn't even want to type that phrase, people.)  This brought up the topic of Julie's plastic surgery.

*  Julie told Howard that she was working in the Dayton Ohio TV market and management there told her that if she had surgery to "Americanize" her eyes she could probably get a job in any TV market in the US, or she could just rot in a tiny market like Dayton.  So she had the surgery.  Howard kind of pushed on that comment, and got Julie to admit that she wanted to get the surgery for herself, anyway, and the station manager's advice made it convenient to do so.

*  Howard asked Julie about other rumored plastic surgery she might have had, but she denied having any other procedures at all.  Julie specifically denied getting a nose job, breast implants, and also says she has never had Botox.  She told Howard that she wears a padded bra on TV sometimes, but has not had any work done other than her eyes.  (I believe her....)

*  Howard admitted that he and his wife Beth ran into Julie and Les in some tropical location during a two-week vacation.  It sounds like Howard made peace with Les and the four of them hung out a few times and enjoyed socializing.  Howard also said that he laid by the pool and watched Les try to look after his young son.  Howard "joked" that every day he and Beth timed how long Les played with the baby and it got a little shorter every day.  (Howard scoffs at other rich guys who have a second round of kids with their "trophy wives".)

*  Sharon Osborne has a FILTHY mouth and will say anything to anyone.  She really enjoys shocking people.  Howard brought up Sara Gilbert, who is another co-host of The Talk and how she is a lesbian.  Sharon said that whenever Sara is a few minutes late to work she "jokes" about what Sara was doing in bed instead of coming to work.  At some point Julie Chen said that Sharon calls Sara a "pu**y lick*r".  (No way am I going to type that word here on this website.  No way in hell.)


I just want to point out that AT NO TIME did Julie Chen call anyone names or use terms in a degrading or derogatory manner.  She was just participating in the conversation, but Sharon is clearly the nasty bitch in that friendship.  And I'm sure Sharon would agree.


*  Howard brought up Les' huge p*nis several times and Julie just laughed.  She even brought it up later and they all cracked up.  Apparently Howard commented on seeing Les in his swimsuit and that is what brought up this topic of conversation.

*  Howard doesn't watch Big Brother, but apparently was handed some notes from his staff with questions to ask Julie about it.  Howard asked "why they had that guy on there who made all of the racist comments".  Julie didn't correct Howard on the gender, but said that "when they cast her, they thought she would be the sweetheart of the season and they had no idea what they would say".  (i.e. obviously referring to Aaryn Gries)

*  Howard then talked about how great racism is for ratings, and wondered why Julie even got angry about it.  Julie said "because she said things about Asians!".  That was all that was said about Big Brother, however, although Howard did later talk about how Julie flies across the country to appear on that show as well as her show in New York.  Howard commented that all three of them seem to be unable to turn down opportunities due to their egos and need for attention.  Julie and Sharon both agreed and Howard thinks they all need a lot of counseling.

*  Howard got Julie to admit that her competitor The View's hiring of Jenny McCarthy was a big mistake, since her personality doesn't fit their show.  Howard brought this up later as a shocking admission that would be repeated in the media, but knew that his show would probably not get credit for it.

*  Sharon was being very explicit about her sex life with Ozzie, and Howard turned to Julie and they had the following exchange:

Howard:  I'll bet you're giving it to Les once or twice a week now....

Julie:  AT LEAST!!

Ha ha ha.  I think this was when Julie mentioned Les' huge pen*s again and they all laughed.

*  After continued pestering by Howard, Julie said she is not worried about Les straying in their marriage.  She did seem interested in a particularly nasty exchange Howard and Sharon had about whether Sharon "rims" Ozzie or not.  Howard assured Julie that Les would LOVE that and Julie asked a few questions, as follows:

Julie:  Why are you so sure that Les would like that?

Howard:  Every man would love that.

*  Howard and Sharon discussed some gross story where Sharon had diarrhea and had to call her assistant to bring her some clothes.  Robin Quivers chimed in with her own story after being prompted by Howard (Robin had an accident while running and had to ask a Mexican landscaper to use his garden hose so she could clean off before running back to her hotel.)  Julie did not admit to ever having this type of accident herself (thank god) but she did share the following "joke".

Julie:  You know what they say about diarrhea?  It's the race out of your ass where everybody wins!

***I just want to point out that I don't understand that joke at all.  I had to write it out almost word-for-word because it didn't make much sense to me.***

These are the shocking highlights from what Julie said on the show.  Sharon and Howard had PLENTY of shocking conversation, however, including how Sharon would sit on stage at America's Got Talent and tell Howard she could tell which contestants were pedoph*les (not going to type that word, either) just by looking at them.  Howard would then be shocked that Sharon would vote those contestants through to the next round.  It was a very funny interview and if you ever get the chance to hear it, I recommend it highly.

It will certainly give you a different impression of Julie Chen...

TMZ is running an excerpt from the interview at this link.  The excerpt features Sharon discussing her rumored surgical procedure, but you can hear Julie chiming in as well.


I have a few things to say about the BB15 cast's behavior in the past few months.  I will try to post before the end of the weekend.  Things have just been crazy and I haven't had a chance to get to it, unfortunately.

Seth Rogen Calls Dr. Will a F*cking Stinky Idiot, and a F*cking Moron

Dr. Will Kirby kicked back to watch a movie yesterday, apparently, and didn't like what he saw.  He watched Seth Rogen's This is the End and felt the need to vent about it.

We all know that if you give Dr. Will an inch of attention, he will try to take a mile of any sort of publicity he can get.  Once Seth took the bait, Dr. Will tried to run with it, of course.

I'm kind of jaded where Dr. Will is concerned, so I am tempted to call bullshit on this entire exchange.  I think Dr. Will met Seth Rogen somewhere, which made this entire exchange possible.  But maybe not... maybe Seth saw that Dr. Will was a Verified Tweeter, so this made his Tweets stand out amongst Seth's 1,000,000+ followers.

I think Seth Rogen did have the last word here, in a way that probably hits Dr. Will right where it hurts....his ego.

I know one thing...if I was living in the same town as Seth Rogen, I would go out of my way to avoid offending him, in hopes of being invited to a party or two at his house. I mean, wouldn't you?

Yes, that's what I thought.

PS:   Last week Dr. Will opened up a new Dr. Tattoff here in Atlanta, but in my opinion he located it in the wrong spot.  The clinic is located in the most expensive retail real estate area of Atlanta, in Buckhead near Lenox Square.  I think he should have located in an area where people with tattoos actually hang out, and the rents are more affordable.  Like Little Five Points, Midtown, or at the very least Decatur.

But maybe Dr. Will's target tattoo removal audience is the soccer moms who are regretting getting that tramp stamp way back in their sorority days.  In that case, the Atlanta location of Dr. Tattoff is probably in exactly the right place.

Trouble in Paradise for The Chenbot?

 I have mixed feelings about blind gossip items.  Sure they're fun and reading them can be a pleasant way to waste valuable time during the workday, but are they really true?  Or do people just make them up to get hits on their websites and maybe to stir up a little trouble?

Well, there is a blind item out there today about a female talk show host whose husband is smitten with a much younger woman.  The item mentions all of the bridges the talk show host has burned, implying her life might not be the same without her marriage.

The popular guesses are Julie Chen.  Yep, the Chenbot.  You know her husband Les Moonves is the President of CBS, right?

You can read the blind item here, and believe it at your own risk.

Gina Marie's Big Date with Nick is Tomorrow #BB15

Yep, the day is finally almost here.  If you've been following the story, Nick has agreed to follow through on his commitment to take Gina Marie out on a date, in Philadelphia, of all places.

Nick bought tickets for this Monster Truck Jam last month.  Have you ever been to a Monster Truck rally?  The closest I've come is watching the commercials for one at 3:00 am after a night of bar hopping.  The announcer always uses a raspy, scary tone, and the video shows big trucks flying through the air and landing on a Tercel or something.  And mud splashing.  Lots of mud splashing.

Not the best place for a "date" with me.  But then again, I'm no Gina Marie.

Nick is actually filming this "date" with Gina Marie for his You Tube Reality Star Tour (or whatever it is called).  He raised the money on Kickstarter to drive around the US and "interview" (or "date") various reality personalities.

Here is a summary of Nick's Kickstarter results.    I work with numbers for a living, and this smells funny to me.  With 125 contributors, an average of $146 was donated by each person.  That's a lot for a campaign like this.  I'm guessing he got a big chunk of money from his friends Betsey and Lulu Johnson.

As a matter of fact, Nick had his first day of shooting with Betsey and Lulu yesterday.  I guess you could call them "reality stars" since they had an eight episode series on the Style Network.

At first I thought the above picture might be the only documented recent picture of Nick Uhas where he isn't pointing, but then I looked at his left hand.  Pointing, of course.  I don't think he can help himself.

I know Gina Marie is excited about the "date".  She's still carrying that torch for Nick, although maybe she's dragging it now.  Through the mud, maybe.

I think it's sad, actually.  Gina Marie is certainly a flawed person, as we all are, but this is sad.  Looking back to happier days, here is a picture Gina Marie tweeted the day after the Big Brother 15 finale, in a hotel bathroom with Nick.  Pointing, of course.


Regarding Kickstarter campaigns and similar fundrasing online campaigns, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those donations you make are NOT tax-deductible.  For one reason, in many of the campaigns you are receiving something of value in return for your contribution.   Sometimes it is an autographed picture or rights to see some sort of exclusive content.  But it's something of value, so you can't deduct it as a donation.

And even if you do donate money that is strictly for a charitable cause, unless the organization has been formally recognized as a non-profit corporation eligible to receive tax deductible contributions, you are out of luck as far as deducting the donation on your tax return.  You might find a tax preparer who deducts it anyway, or deduct it yourself if you prepare your own tax return, but it is technically incorrect and could lead to tax issues for you later.

As an example, I recently donated to Adam Carolla's effort to raise $1,000,000 to shoot a new movie.  Adam offered all sorts of incentives for donations, the highest of which seemed to be a walk-on role in the movie for a donation of $10,000.  It sounds outrageous, but Adam has some rabid fans who took the bait.  I donated about $30 for the "Pirate Ship Package", which seems like a bargain when you consider I will get a limited edition T-shirt for investors, as well as a DVD of the movie and my name listed in the credits of the film.

So, for Nick to get an average of $146 per investor just seems way off to me.  If one of the investors (Betsey or Lulu) gave him $10,000, that would lower the average donation for the other 124 investors to $23, which seems more reasonable to me for the Big Brother fans.


There is some juicy news out there regarding Nick storming out of an interview after a barrage of questions about his sexuality, and Gina Maire breaking down in tears.  I will not be reporting that here until I can verify that this actually happened, but you can ready Spicy's account on her website here.  She had a tipster send her the info, and it is certainly juicy news.

Are You Missing Live Feed Action?

Today I discovered this Panda Cam from the San Diego National Zoo, and I have been quite impressed with what I've seen this morning.

I have been watching a giant panda eat bamboo and interact with the visitors staring at him (or her).  The panda has also given us several artful closeups where he (or she) sits quietly, maybe worrying about this weeks HoH competition or Thursday's nomininations.

Nah...no one is getting evicted from the Panda House, and they seem to be more active than the Big Brother house guests ever were in the morning. 

You can enjoy the San Diego Panda Cam here.

#BB15 + Unlimited Alcohol = Hot Mess

The team at AfterBuzz TV has been trying to get more BB15 house guests in for post-season interviews, and having a little trouble.  Last week they featured Elissa Slater and Nick Uhas in studio for an interview (you can see that here) but admit to having difficulties booking other guests.

Apparently the AfterBuzz TV show has been very Pro-Elissa all season, which also means they are perceived to be Anti-Everyone Else, so they've been having issues booking guests, admitting McCranda refuses to speak to them.

This episode features call-ins from Andy Herren, Aaryn Gries, Kaitlin Barnaby and Jeremy McGuire.  Then Fucking Liza from BB Canada calls in to vent, in Full Crazy mode. I honestly think she might need to be institutionalized before she can hurt herself or others.

You want to hear it, don't you?

And of course, I have comments to make about this.

The Hosts

*  Ashley is "newly single", if that means anything to you.  I think she's looking to hook up with Jeremy, from the sound of things.  She also admits to "zoning out" and being spacy during this interview.  Good old Ashley.

*  The two hosts constantly roll their eyes and give themselves away by their glances to each other and off-camera while the houseguests are talking.  I am not surprised that some of the house guests will not agree to be on the show, after seeing this.  It's hard to appear unbiased if you are mocking the interviewees.  But this does make watching the video funny, I have to say.  I kind of want to slap Ryan though.

*  Ryan Carillo, the male co-host of the show, loves to make it all about himself.  He mentions "his season" of whatever god awful reality show he has appeared on, and also tells us he "grew up in a cult in San Diego", and also refers to himself as "famous" during this podcast.  I think a good drinking game for this podcast would be throwing back a shot when you want to throw a punch at Ryan.  Sorry Ryan.  (Not really.)

*  Ryan compares himself to Bill O'Reilly during the interview.  He also makes a comparison between Aaryn and Bill Clinton, and Andy and Barack Obama.  I can't make this up, people.


*  They accused Andy of being a drunk, and he admits to being buzzed since he left the house.

*  Ryan says he has to ask Andy "as a gay man" how "another gay man can't jerk off all summer long".  I think any straight guy would ask the same question Ryan, so get over yourself.  (I don't like Ryan.)   Ryan also mentions Nick watching Andy shower (see link to last week's AfterBuzz above) and to Andy's credit he handed all questions without hesitation.

*  I really don't get why some fans really HATE Andy.  And by HATE I mean REALLY HATE.  I watched Andy all summer and found him very entertaining, but Andy doesn't seem to give a damn what fans think, and says he loves to make people mad with his arrogant tweets.  Maybe the alcohol dulls the pain though. Just sayin'...

*  He mentions getting a text from Helen, and meeting up with her in Michael's Craft Store in Chicago.  It kind of sounds to me that Helen may have been avoiding him....what do you think?


*  Aaryn's guns were blazing.  She took every question and swatted it away with words.  

*  Aaryn knows that "Adderall is a hot commodity and everybody wants it".  She can't help it if she has a prescription for it.  (If you've ever taken Adderall, you would certainly agree with her.  I know I do.)

*  She has teamed up with Russell Hantz from Survivor and they will be appearing at charity events together this year.  Yes, you read that correctly.

*  She mentions her fights in Las Vegas with Jessie Kowalski and Liza from BB Canada.  (Who?)  Aaryn says Liza is "nuts and just wants followers".


*  Kaitlin started to watch BB15 after her eviction but "thought it was weird and stopped".  Let's all remember that Kaitlin hadn't EVEN HEARD OF BIG BROTHER when she was approached behind the bar in Minnesota by a casting rep.  She said she "watched every live eviction", though, so I guess we can believe that.

*  Kaitlin works at The Bank in Las Vegas, and apparently when the BB15 house guests were there she had Jeremy thrown out of the party.  She admits to being really drunk and "didn't like the way he was talking to her", so she "had security throw him out".   She admits to being on a power trip, since she works at that club.

*  Kaitlin also mentions James Rhine, who "threw the party" with her.  Uh huh.  James Rhine "befriended" Kaitlin IMMEDIATELY after she was evicted from the BB house.  (You can catch up with that here.)  James is always there to help the ladies when they leave the house...


*  Jeremy seems oblivious to the whole Las Vegas situation.  He doesn't even seem to remember getting thrown out of the club, and seems to want us all to think that he and Kaitlin are still together.  (Not according to my local newspaper..)

*  Jeremy has watched every episode of BB15 and also all of the BBAD shows since his eviction.  I guess he wasn't driving around all over the Southwest with James Rhine, so he had some time to kill.


*  She admits she wants to bang Kaitlin, Jessie, and Amanda, but not Aaryn.  Hell no!

*  This bitch is CRAZY.  Please make her GO AWAY.

*  Be sure to watch this portion of the video, rather than just listening, when Liza is ranting and raving.  The shots of the hosts and the producer tell us everything we need to know about Liza.

Bold & the Beautiful Casting Stunts Continue #BB15

The CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful has a long history of featuring current reality show stars as bit players on their show.

Who can forget Jeff and Jordan making their appearance after BB11, and of course Rachel and Brendon have appeared a number of times in recurring roles.  For example, Brendon was a bartender.

If you watched the Survivor Phillipines Reunion, then you may remember the embarrassing video clip that Jeff Probst introduced that starred Malcolm Freberg. I don't understand what Malcolm's role was all about, but it looked like gay porn to me, with all of the dramatic camera shots and bad dialogue.

Well, The Bold and the Beautiful is pulling out all of the stops in October, as Elissa Slater and Howard Overby from BB15 appear on the show, along with Jeff, Rachel, Brendon and Malcolm.  The scenes have already been taped, and Elissa will play a hostess at the "Bikini Bar".  I'm pretty sure this is the bar where Brendon plays a bartender, and Rachel a waitress. I think Malcom was some sort of office worker at Forrester Industries, or maybe he was a masseuse making an outcall at Forrester Industries. 

You can read the entire article here, as Elissa discusses her long time love of the show.

I'm going to tape these shows.....this sounds like can't-miss entertainment.


Enjoy these clips of Rachel and Brendon's Bold and the Beautiful appearances.

And this stunning clip from a recent appearance by Jeff on the Bold and the Beautiful.  Jeff played A JANITOR, if you can believe that.  They didn't even bother to put him in a jumpsuit, or even wear a shitty nametag or hat.  Jeff did a good job with the dialog, though.  I think they should have had Jeff carryng a clipboard or something instead of cleaning supplies, but what do I know?

Big Brother Stars Visit the 65th Annual Emmy Awards

Two legendary former Big Brother house guests attended the Emmy Awards last night in Los Angeles.  And Nick Uhas did, too.  Ha ha ha.

The first Big Brother legend to attend was Jeff Schroeder.  He is pictured below with Alex Boylan and Anne O'Grady, who apparently works in CBS promotions.  Alex was on The Amazing Race once upon a time, and also produces the Around the World For Free series.  Jeff still works with Alex on various projects and they are friends.

And this is Jeff with Phil Keoghan, host of The Amazing Race, of course.  TAR did not win an Emmy last night for Best Reality Series (or whatever) but don't feel sorry for Phil. He already has several TAR Emmy's on his mantle.  I was hoping Top Chef would win, but The Voice won instead.

 I don't know who the Handsome Devil is on the far right of this picture is.  Do you?

 Rachel Reilly also attended the Emmy's but her involvement appeared to be totally unrelated to whatever Jeff was doing there.  The first hint that Rachel would be attending came yesterday afternoon, when she tweeted this selfie saying she was getting ready for the Emmy's.

I think we can all agree that Rachel looks absolutely STUNNING here. But then I wondered, where is Brendon?  Isn't he getting ready to go to the Emmy's, too?

Nope.  Because Rachel apparently attended the Emmy's with Nick Uhas.  Yes, that's right. Nick Uhas.

Some friends of Nick's were also pictured with them---one of them is a guy that Nick has been wandering around Los Angeles with, taking pictures like tourists.  I think his name is Matt.  Nick tweeted a picture of the two guys with Lisa Vanderpump at her restaurant Sur.

Now, why would two guys go to Sur and take pictures with Lisa Vanderpump?

To get attention, I would guess.  I used to follow Nick on Twitter but I just couldn't take him retweeting every freaking second for no reason.  You know, one of those people who retweet every compliment they get. 

And the "pointing" bothered me too.

You know, this kind of pointing.

So my guess is that Nick got an extra ticket to the Emmy's somehow through his friends, and invited Rachel to be his date.  It's a way to get attention, right?  And Nick is good at that.

Jeff Schroeder's Backyard Interview with Judd Daughtery #BB15

Jeff and Judd were reunited in the backyard after the BB15 finale for an interview.  Jeff called him "J.U. Double Evcited" and Judd laughed.

Judd, laughing:  It's J.U. Double D!  Get it right!

Judd says it was a dream come true to be on the show this year, and he even got an opportunity to come back in the house after being evicted.

Judd:  That doesn't happen too often in the game.  So I got back in and did what I wanted to do..aligned with a few of the smaller players and stayed around a few more weeks.

Jeff says it looks like Judd quit during the SuperHero PoV competiton.

Jeff:  What's up with that?

Judd:  Well, puzzles just aren't my thing, and I could tell that when I was copyin' other people they were clearly gonna beat me...Andy was close to winnin', so I thought the best thing was to help him with the buzzer...I thought him winnin' over McCrae was my best chance.

 Jeff:  Yeah, and I think Spencer was kind of mad about that...you helpin' Andy..

Judd:  Well, I guess Spencer thought he was almost done with his puzzle...I'd like to know when  because I didn't see him getting close to finishing his puzzle, but whatever...I don't get it..

Judd says he knew he was a Dead Man Walking after McCrae won the PoV.

Judd:  You probably saw me throwin' things around in there...I was mad.

Jeff:  Well before the game we were all looking forward to seeing Party Daughtery in there, and I thought you'd be jumping in the pool naked and everything...what happened?

Judd:  Well, you get in there and you feel like you have to tone it down a little..at first I kind of wanted to play that game and make everybody think I was just here to party and have fun.  But  there wasn't hardly any alcohol, so I was disappointed in that.  There was like 6 beers and one bottle of wine for 16 people..

Jeff:  Party Daughtery likes his alcohol.

Judd:  Definitely..

Jeff:  So does J.U. Double Eff, there's nothing wrong with that.

(Did he mean J.E. Double Eff?  I hope so.  Because I'm hoping Jeff can spell his own name.)
Jeff mentions that Judd made out with two chicks in the house, and was a "regular Don Juan" in there.

Judd:  Well, I'm 26...I'm single, and I'm just havin' fun...it's part of it.

Jeff wonders if Judd has any hopes of hooking up with any of the house guests outside of the house.

Judd:  Well, this is a big transition period.  I'm still getting used to everything...learning to drive again...we'll just see what happens after this. Get to know people outside the game without havin' to worry about them stabbin' me in the back!

 Jeff says he met Judd's dad "downstairs before this" and that Judd's "whole town is going crazy right now" about Judd's appearance on the show.  Jeff says that even though there was a lot of controversy this year but as far as Jeff knows, Judd had no part in any of the scandals.  Jeff said he played a great game and the whole town is proud of him.

Judd says he hopes he didn't disappoint anybody and wants to apologize if he said or did anything to offend anybody.  He gives a shout out to Englewood Tennessee and says he tried to be himself the whole time.

If Judd could change one thing, he wouldn't have worked with McCrae and  Amanda so much, particularly at the beginning of the game.  He wishes he would have aligned with David, or Jeremy, or maybe even Nick.

Judd:  But everything worked out fine, and I got to come back, so that's good.

Jeff:  Absolutely!

 Jeff mentions Elissa winning America's Favorite, but says Judd's Bear Shirt should have won that prize, because America went crazy over that shirt.  Judd got a big laugh out of that. 

Then Jeff says that he bought Judd a gift from the dollar store and I know I was excited, after that Big Build up.

But Jeff gives Judd this pair of HUGE camouflage shorts to "wear with the Bear Shirt".  Apparently the tag on the shorts says "J.U. Double Evicted".

Judd:  These are bad ass!

Jeff:  But you can take off that tag, though. It's just taped on.

Jeff wants Judd to send him a picture of him wearing the Bear Shirt and the shorts and Judd promises to send him one.

Jeff:  Are you gonna come back out to California and party with me and Jordan?

Judd:  For sure! If  J.E. Double Eff can handle hanging out with J.U. Double D let's make it happen!

Jeff:  I love this guy!

Jeff Schroeder's Backyarrd Interview with Jessie Kowalski #BB15

Now it's Jessie's turn to chat with Jeff in the backyard after the Big Brother Finale.  Jeff begins the interview with a very Un-Jefflike comment, saying that Jessie looks "good and sexy" he needs to be sure he is keeping his eyes "up here" during the interview.  You know, because of all of the cleavage.

Jessie:  Thank you Jeff!

Jessie said during her pre-season interview with Jeff, they were laughing and having fun, and he told her that she should remember that fun moment because things would get really tough inside the house.  She says things did get tough for her, but she remembered what Jeff said to her and it helped.

Jeff:  Thanks Jessie...now you're my favorite interview so far!

(That is Candice sitting on the ground on the far right side of the picture below.  I guess her dogs were barking in those high heels.)

Jeff wondered if she had any regrets about her game this summer.  She says she didn't want to be a floater, even though people have told her that she could have laid low and gone a lot farther in the game.  She wanted to change things up and get Amanda out. 

Jessie:  And that's what America wanted, too, obviously....

Jeff:  I think you really tried to step it up in that last week there...it was just too little too late. What do you think?

Jessie:  Oooo.  Ouch! I was just trying to get to know the other players and see where I fit in, and honestly I didn't really fit in anywhere!  I didn't gel with anybody, and that sucked.  Because people who partnered up had a great longevity in the game. 

Jeff, smirking:  Well, you were tryin' to partner up.

Jessie:  I was trying!  I was trying to partner up.....really hard.

Jeff, still smirking:  But, with a couple of dudes in the house!

Jessie:  Yeah, we had some attractive people in the house...and I was open to a showmance, but unfortunately it didn't work out.

(Look at Jeff grinning at Jessie....me thinks Jeff likey.)

Jeff:  So were you looking for a showmance?  Or was it gettin' lonely in there...what was up?

Jessie:  I guess my personality is that I'm a 'relationship girl' so I just kind of looked to that guy counterpart...to find a guy to help me through the game, kind of like you and Jordan did...see how I did that Jeff?  Turned it right back to you?

She thinks she will be friends with everyone now and has good relationships with everyone.

Jessie says the Jury House was very luxurious but she did a lot of reading while she was there.  She says that's all she really felt like doing, to get away from everyone and everything.

Jeff:  I tried to decompress in the Jury House.  I was still around the other people but I had my space in there.  Did you kind of decompress in there?

Jessie:  Yeah, that's what I was doing.  I was reading..

(Jeff didn't ask what books she read?  C'mon Jeff.)

(I actually heard Elissa on a podcast where she said Jessie kept to herself the entire time in the Jury House and had meals delivered to her room instead of joining the group.)

(Is Jeff looking down Jessie's top in this picture?)

Jessie said that tempers flared in the Jury House and Jeff pushed her for the dirt.

Jessie:  Well, Amanda and Elissa...but that's expected...they had a little tiff right before leaving the Jury House.  There were pent up old frustrations that just came out in there.

Jessie said there was some "sister stuff" in there and lots of bickering.

Jessie says that the cameras missed some fun times in the Jury House.  There was one night where they were all out by the pool in bikinis, dancing and drinking and they all said the cameras should be there, too.

Jessie:  I'm gonna move to L.A.and see if I can do some more television action...maybe some films..

Jeff:  Oh, you're gonna take my job now?

Jessie:  I'm gonna try to steal his job now.

Jeff, still in Flirty Town:  Well, I'm gonna wrap this thing up now!

Jessie takes the mic from him and poses as the interviewer and she seems believable to me.  (I could actually see her as one of those girls on the sidelines at football games, chatting up the players and the coaches.  About what, I don't know.  But I could see it.)

Now it's time to give Jessie her dollar store gag gift, and this gift may be the most useful and practical gift so far, although it is seriously lacking in creativity.

Jeff:  It's a flashlight.  Because you were in the dark so much of the time in there.....I didn't know what to get.  But you look really sexy in the picture.

Jeff wraps up, but not before telling Jessie that "she looks really attractive tonight".
