Devin Puts Amber on Blast #BB16

BUT FIRST..... As usual I have pictures from yesterday that I didn't get a chance to post....so let's start with those.

Yesterday when Joey was on a mission to speak to everyone about staying in the house,  she went to the couch in the backyard where Jocosta (or however we're spelling it this week) was sitting reading the Bible.

Joey greeted her with an energetic "Hey!" but Jocosta just grunted at her and kept reading.

And reading.

And reading.  Joey had the good sense to wait.  Brittany came over and joined them, and Jocosta was still mute.

OK, I know she wants to read her Bible, but this is Big Brother dammit.  She has the rest of the day to read the Bible and I'm pretty sure she has read that story collection before.  You'd think she would try to be present and play the game, but maybe that's not what Jesus has in store for her this week.

And a Brittany bikini shot for you.  You know, whenever I look at the search terms that "people" use to find websites they are looking for, I am somewhat horrified.  You "people" out there on the internet never forget a female house guest from any seasons past, and you are very direct naming the various body parts that you'd like to see.

I guess I can talk about those "people" all I want, because I am pretty sure they just look at the pictures and never read the text.

So far, no one's looking for "sexy police sergeant" but I guess there's plenty of time for that.

OK.  Here's some dirt.  Or juice.  Whatever.

You may recall that Caleb is obsessed with Amber, to such a degree that he wore one of her sundresses like a scarf all day on Sunday.  Yes, he did.  So later on Sunday he decided to sit her down and tell her how he felt about her.  (See recap here, about half-way down the page.)

After that conversation, I was sure that Caleb would realize Amber just wasn't that into him, but he didn't.  A few deliciously evil people in the house kept telling him that Amber really did like him, but was afraid to let her feelings show to avoid becoming a target.

Well, this morning around 3:30 am, Devin told Caleb that Amber has been mocking him and his feelings for her all over the house.  This conversation took place in the HoH Room, which Caleb will be vacating on Thursday to return to the Gen Pop downstairs.

Devin tells the story in an excruciatingly slow manner, by first describing who else was present, and exactly where they were sitting. Amber apparently told the group that she doesn't like Caleb "like that" and said that Caleb was very into himself and then Devin started telling her to "JUST STOP....JUST STOP".

Devin said Amber claimed she was just telling the truth, but this bothered Devin greatly.

Devin:  Why is she going to keep asking you to take her to the end?  To take her to the finals with you?  I mean, I'm fine with her being in our alliance and all, but to try and, like, use you like that?

Caleb:  And what I don't get, is that just two days ago she was layin' in the hammock with Hayden, and said wouldn't it be cute if after this you and Nicole go out in the car on a date?  And then Hayden said won't you be going out with Caleb, too? and she said yeah, probably.

(I think Hayden made that shit up....he is surprisingly evil...hee hee hee.)

Caleb:  I said up here to Amber that it sounded like she wanted to go on a date with me and she said, 'what are you talkin' about?  And then I asked Hayden again if Amber said that and he told me to just get home and "watch the tape...watch the tape".

Devin:  Yeah..he wouldn't lie like that...

(Ha ha ha)

Caleb:  So I don't know if she's hidin' all of this so the house won't think she likes me, and after this is over she'll tell me..I don't know what her problem is, but she's throwin' mixed signals towards everybody.  One minute she's tellin' Pao Pao that she's only dated African American guys but she thinks I'm a good looking man, and she likes that I'm a good old country boy...and the next thing you know she's saying all of this...


Caleb:  Just the other day we were sittin' there eatin' salmon together and I said, 'this is our first date' and she said 'I know'.  And we were talkin' about the game and the Finale and she said 'if you take me there I'll take you there."

Willie Hantz, at home watching the Live Feeds:  It just don't make sense!  It just don't make sense!  It just don't make sense!

Devin told Caleb to watch what he tells Frankie about this, because he doesn't want Frankie to run his mouth all over the house about it.  Devin wasn't going to tell Caleb about this because it was none of his business, but when he saw Caleb being so sad about Amber, he had to tell Caleb the truth.

Devin:  I'm like, really irritated dude. It's like she's using you!

Caleb:  All I need in this game is you and Frankie.  Anything everybody else has, I already have. For her to say I'm all about myself.....the one time I sat right here and talked to her for four hours, I talked about my family...how could she think I'm all about myself?

(Uh, because you talked about your family for four hours...)

Devin:  Keep her around until the first week of Jury and then get rid of her.  Don't tell her that I told you about this...

Caleb:  Well, she's gonna see that I'm different towards her.  I'm not gonna make her ice cream anymore...

Devin:  You can tell her in the Jury, I don't care, but not now because I don't want any friction in this house that will blow things up.

Caleb:  And it would....it would...we have to put on a front, man.

Devin:  Dude...man....WOW!

Caleb:  Here's what I don't get...Why would she say she liked that I was a good country boy?  When she's never been with a country boy before?  Why would she say that?

(I didn't say this makes sense, people, I'm just reporting what happened.)

Frankie came in and Caleb gave Devin the signal to tell the story AGAIN.   So of course Frankie is going to blab, right?

Devin told the story, but also added that Amber came up and told him that he was her type...."you know...tall, mixed, with muscles".

Devin:  I didn't want to say anything....because I've never dated a.......a.....a.....I don't want to say it here (gesturing towards cameras), but.....

(WHAT DEVIN, WHAT?  A white girl?  A model? A hoo-ore?)

Devin just keeps talking, and talking, saying that he feels like he's been fooled, and he doesn't like that...

(How does he thinks Caleb feels?)

Devin:  That just bugs me, dude, it bugs me...

(Production better keep an eye on Amber....either one of those guys could choke her out before Grodner even has a chance to take her headphones off....)

(Somebody better be counting all of those birdhouses, particularly the number of blue ones...., right?)

***ALSO***  I heard Amber was bragging to the girls that she got a box of Mac & Cheese from Caleb's HoH basket after he said he liked her.  Take that, Caleb!  Someone please tell Caleb about that...maybe with a banner plane or something, because I want to hear him cry about the Mac & Cheese. The nerve of that bitch!

Ha ha ha ha.  Amber is turning out to be much more entertaining than I had ever hoped for...

OK.  On to today.  As of this morning, Donny is in the house...I recently heard the Bomb Squad say Donny would go on the block again next week, but if Donny just lays low there will be plenty of other targets that will go before he does....

Frankie laid on the hammock with Christine and gleefully told her that everybody in the house hates Devin now.  They both rejoice that the shit is going to come down, and hard.

Derrick sleeps in the Rock Room.

The Rock Room is a tad messy.  Just a tad.

Amber prepares for her day.  Any day now Amber, any day....

Enjoy that Mac & Cheese, hon.

Bro Talk at the Pool Table #BB16

I am searching the feeds for newsy items from last night, and stopped on a game of pool that occurred after 4:00 am.

I've always said that playing pool is a great way to hold an alliance meeting, because it is easy to keep up the charade of the game and talk softly.  It is the perfect cover for game talk.

But I didn't hear much game talk in this game of pool.

Of course Derrick is out there.  Duh.  The guys are really into the game and are setting up shots and celebrating or sighing depending on the outcome.

When Devin is being one of the guys, he is at least 37% less annoying, but is throwing Michael Jordan's name out there a lot.

Cody is like everybody's little brother and takes his share of ribbing.  Look at how his body flies under the radar next to a big hulk like Devin.  Derrick keeps calling him "Corey" and Cody said that happens a lot at home, too, and he'll generally answer to anything that starts with a "C".

Devin started calling him Corey, too, after hearing this, so now you know who Corey is.

Production better have security on hand in the next couple of weeks, because this equation isn't going to work, long-term.

Devin + Caleb - Food + Slop - Amber's Affections + Devin's daughter turning 2 years 1 week old = Trouble

Dare I say Roid Rage?  Well, I just did.

BB:  Devin to the Storage Room!  Caleb to the Diary Room!

I just don't think that is going to work this time.  Do you?

Derrick went around the table and asked everyone's age again, saying "Fuck!  I'm the old guy out here!"

Devin:  Corey's 18.

Cody:  No, I'm 23...just turned 23..

Caleb:  I can guarantee that Cody's got a dime piece at home....I guarantee it...

Cody:  No..

Caleb:  I know you have a hot girlfriend at home...

Cody:  She's not my girlfriend....

Derrick:  That's what  told you...there's gotta be somebody out there watching and she's in a fucking magazine...

Cody:  There's this girl I work with that I hooked up with who was from Atlanta, Georgia  (Heeeeeyyy!) ..she's just smokin' and she looks 12, and this other girl I hook up with that I work with on the weekends.....

Caleb says at 26 he looks at the total package---this one girl he just started talking to is in graduate school and her parents are doctors.

Caleb:  I said, what's your credit score and she said 800 and I said that's what I'm talkin' about...

Cody, to Derrick:  That's the girl who I told you about from Hoboken...she's so hot....

Cody asked Caleb if he told the girl what he was doing this summer.

Cody:  Because I didn't....I just let them drop off and I think I shot myself in the foot...

Caleb:  No, you just upped your street value!

Caleb says in the little town where he's from, it's going to "look like Judd with all of the street signs and people waving".

Cody says his brother is dating "one of the Knicks dancers" and the guys all react to that.

Devin:  You're dating a Knicks dancer?

Cody:  No, my brother is, but all of her friends.....

Devin:  You get free Knicks tickets?

Cody:  I dunno...

Devin:  What do you mean you don't know!  You hear that D? (to Derrick)  When I come over there we're going to the Knicks game...going to the Garden.

Derrick:  I knew it....the Knicks too....it all makes sense now..

They think the backyard will be locked down sometime Wednesday afternoon to get ready for Thursday's live show.  Even if the HoH competition is a simple question and answer, they still know BB is going to do it up right and take their time with it.

(The house guests will also need to rehearse on Thursday, and the feeds will be down much of the afternoon while they practice.....CBS doesn't want to take too many chances with live air time...)

It's so fun to watch the live feeds during conversations like this.  You really feel like you are eavesdropping when the guys start talking like they would at home...


I still love Derrick.

Live Feeders are Choosing Next Week's Have Not Foods #BB16

If you have the live feeds, on the CBS site there is a little tab in the chat window called "Vote" where you will find this poll.  Here are the results so far:

I voted for the vegan option, naturally (since I am one). If a Vegan S'more is what I think it is, it would be a delicious treat for anyone, any day.  Vegan graham crackers are sold in natural food stores, and I'm assuming someone out there can make vegan marshmallows.  Although one of the main ingredients in a traditional marshmallow is egg whites, I'm certain there are some available vegan options for that.

And dark chocolate is dark chocolate.  Yum.

I don't know about you, but I've been hoping that Devin and Caleb will be Have Nots next week.  How fun will that be?  They will both be crying like big fat babies about how hungry they are.

Devin:  Waaaahhhhh!  I'm losing muscle mass!

Caleb: Waaaaahhh!  I just seen Amber eating a sandwich!

So in that case, I think the Vegan S'mores would still be the best option, since there is probably much more protein in the "'Wurst" since I assume it is made of liver.

Let's make them really suffer.....

PS  I had some friends last year and we had the munchies.  (Shocker.)  We ended up making S'mores with the delicious addition of peanut butter.  We roasted the marshmallows using chopsticks over an open gas flame on the stove, and smeared some peanut butter on the graham crackers before we assembled them.  I think it was the best Highdea ever....

Bravo Wil Heuser! The BB Saga Continues.... #BB16

After watching this, I am just floored by Wil's many talents.  The Big Brother casting team gave Wil a lot to work with this year..

I don't want to spoil the surprise, but Jesus makes several appearances here that are laugh out loud funny.

And the musical number sounds as good as any pop song...I'm going to be singing "I like being naked..." all day now.

Enjoy, enjoy...thank you Wil.

And thank you Stephanie for reminding me!
