Tidbits, Trinkets & Trash - October 15th-17th #BBOTT

I think this first set of pictures is from Friday night.  Justin was entertaining Kryssie as she ate her sandwich. In his live DR session,  Justin told us that his first loyalties are to Jason, Kryssie, and Neeley, but he's definitely playing both sides of the house.

There are little people made out of aluminum foil that Justin created.  I think someone or something knocked into one of them, injuring it, and it needs to lean over now.  Justin has quite a lot of artistic talent in many areas.

Whitney does a good job of blending in with the other side, and I'm sure she's a nice girl and all, but she's playing the game, too.  She watches Big Brother, she knows how things usually go.  The Plastics, now calling themselves the Ball Crushers, want to vote all of the guys out first.

I saw Whitney's boyfriend Winston on Twitter and he's very cute, and seems very supportive of her. It looks like he is a single dad, but I can't remember Whitney talking about that.  I don't think Winston minds, though.  He seemed pretty open, posting pictures of his daughter front and center.

At midnight the Have Not week was over, and Morgan immediately started eating a piece of pizza with Alex.  It must have been tough to be the only Have Not, after Monte left and Scott won HoH.  And this year it doesn't look like there is going to be any additional Have Not foods every week.

No Baguettes & Beans, or Squirrel Nuts & Seeds. No nothing except slop and the same old condiments and food accessories (like pickles and olives) that are traditionally used by the Have Nots.

Justin made a sandwich for Morgan, putting down three slices of bacon in a pan.  Morgan has been VERY flirty with Justin since Monte left, often greeting him with lingering, full body hugs.  In her live DR session she admitted she was going to start flirting with him to get on his good side. I like that she admits it.  She's kind of the surprise sister to me....I think she might be a more dangerous player than Alex is, because she's stealthy about it.

Morgan's boyfriend is named Conner, and I don't think he signed the release form, because whenever she mentions him the cameras shift.  He plays basketball right now in Japan.  Neelty was talking about how Morgan was hanging on Justin and asked if anyone knew about Conner's ethnicity. I didn't hear a solid response, but I guess Neeley was wondering if Morgan was open to a mixed relationship.

I think Morgan is open to playing the game, and winning.  So good for her.

The sisters have to really be careful when they speak to each other. Their secret seems like it's going to stay that way---they are probably so relaxed about it that it doesn't seem to be an issue anymore.  It must be so hard not to say something that might tip it off, like talking about a shared memory or mentioning their parents or something.

I think their alliance members are going to be angry when they find out.  Julie told Monte right at the end of his interview, so he didn't have a chance to say much about the twist, but I bet he has feelings about it now.  Especially if he's seen the girls make fun of him. And they do that.  A lot.

Morgan's bacon cooks on the stove.  I haven't heard them mention ants this season yet.  Scott told them they they must be doing a good job keeping things clean since there were no ant sightings yet.

But I'm guessing that Production did a big Bug Bomb or something.  You have to kill the queen of the ant bed, I think, to make the ant colony disappear.

That new thing in the pan is an egg that Justin just flipped over.  It was rather disgusting to watch, but it's easy to pretend it's something else now.  It looks like a crabcake, doesn't it?

I don't think Shelby likes the look of it, either.  Shelby's resting face isn't exactly made for TV.  She scrunches up her face constantly and often appears to be scowling or extremely disgusted with what's going on.  But it's just her facial expressions.  I don't think she's even aware of it, because if she was she would try to stop doing it, because not only is she on camera all the time, she's playing a social game.

I don't think she can be a trial lawyer, unless she can control those facial expressions.  Or maybe that would make her a good trial lawyer.  Not sure about that.  I guess it would depend on the situation, but I don't think the judges would look kindly on it.

Morgan enjoyed her sandwich, and then immediately started talking about how full she was.  She said she would never take eating good food for granted again.

I've yet to see Neeley wear all of the fabulous wigs she claimed she was going to wear this season. She said she would have a different one for every day...but she also said she was 33, and would claim to be 28.

Neeley has a firey personality when she gets angry about something.  She stands up and does a lot of cursing, which isn't the norm for her.  Once she even screamed, she was so mad.  But then she sat back down and appeared calm again.

I like Danielle's curly hair, but I have no idea if it's her real hair or not.  I don't understand how fake hair works, other than a simple wig concept. I heard Jason talking about Shelley's extensions but I watched Shelley all summer on BB17 and didn't know she wore them until I heard her admit it.  I'm clueless about it all.

Jason:  She had those glue on extensions.

Neeley:  Oh

Scott led the meeting on Saturday to let the house guests know who America chose to be Have Nots.

I'm sure you know that America chose Alex, Shelby, and Danielle.  Apparently all of the BB "fans" are very upset about that, because they were positive that Kryssie would be a Have Not, rather than Alex.

And the whole internet situation is getting very TOXIC about the game, a few weeks earlier than the typical BB season, and a whole lot nastier.  It's Over the Top for sure.  It makes this process a real chore for me, let's put it that way.

Danielle:  I don't understand why America picked me!

Within minutes of the announcement, Shane and Danielle were already in one of the Spider Web Beds.  Shane announced he would be sleeping in there with Danielle.  He later said to the guys that he didn't care about the bed, as long as he could still eat and take hot showers.

I think Alex was stunned to be named a Have Not, no matter what she says.  She and Shelby both HATE Danielle, but they are happy to hear that America might not be a fan, either.

Shelby: They probably put her in there for the drama, to fight with us.

Scott hasn't been able to use his bathtub, because he couldn't close or open the drain (not sure which).

Scott:  I think they closed it for this year.  I haven't talked to them about it yet in the DR.

Justin sat down and within 15 seconds fixed it for him.  They laughed about it.

It's rare to have a Shane sighting when Danielle is not present, actually.

The girls started trying to get organized in their new habitat.  Shelby brought in all of those pillows from the other room, but BB told her to "Stop That", so she had to put them back.

Jason said Shelby got too greedy about it.  She should have just snuck in one or two pillows, not all of them.  He compared this to the Dentist Chairs in the BB17 Have Not room...they were putting down blankets to make it softer, but once they drew attention to it they were told they had to stop doing it entirely.

Late at night Danielle and Shane crawled into her Spider Web Bed, with the help of one of those camping lanterns.  It must really work like a flashlight, though, rather than kerosene.  And of course they started kissing and carrying on.

From a few feet away, Shelby let them know she heard them.

Shelby:  You guys are the WORST.

They all giggled about it.

Today Scott gathered everyone to learn about America's Nomination.  The air was tense as everyone gathered to see the good or bad news.

And Production takes their time with it, too, slowly beginning to scroll through the eligible house guests.

As usual there is tense silence, punctuated by gasps and nervous laughter as each of them see their picture appear on the screen.

And it ended with Danielle, blowing the picture up slightly to make it official.  Danielle got up and took a seat on the nomination couch, as Scott said it was time to pick players for the Veto competition.

Scott told them where to stand, but then indicated they could stand wherever they wanted, as long as they were up there with him.

Alex was the first chip picked.

And Justin was the second chip.  He told the Ball Smashers that he didn't want to get picked to play PoV, but here he is, playing the PoV.  The big news is that Shane didn't get picked to play.  Scott wants to put Shane on the block as the real target this week, with Danielle as the alternate, so Shane winning PoV and saving her would screw up the plans.

Scott announced they had an hour or so to get ready for the PoV.

Shelby immediately started trash talking Danielle and her reaction to being nominated. And she reported that she overheard Kryssie saying that Scott broke the rules with his nomination speech yesterday.

I did hear Scott crowing about how his nomination speech was going to be earth-shattering, and he told Neeley to listen in because it would be important.  But what I heard him say was that Neeley wasn't the target, but that he and Kryssie are both "mental giants" in this game (WHAT) and that she seemed to have trouble navigating certain group situations, so that is why he nominated her.

It was hardly the exciting nomination speech that Scott claimed it would be.  And Kryssie seemed to handle it pretty well.  She was calm, at least.

Morgan is eating cereal.  Or ice cream, maybe.

Danielle was rather quiet, letting the news sink in that America voted for her go on the block.

Danielle:  Why would America do that to me?

And Neeley was PISSED, because she heard some of the things that Shelby was saying in the bathroom.  She was LIVID that Shelby and her crew were celebrating that someone from their side would likely be evicted this week.

I think she just needed to vent, but it was pretty strong stuff, calling Shelby "Mrs. Potato Head" and talking about how bloated her stomach is.  Lots of cursing, too.  I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy her little tirade.

And then the PoV competition was held.  There was a large stage set up out there, with two sets of heavy red curtains.

I can't remember if Jason read the rules of the competition before or after Scott had to choose which PoV they were playing for (his Care Package prize).  Basically they will compete head-to-head on a puzzle and the winner advances.  Jason drew the order they would play in, and each player would choose who they were going to challenge. Each round will have a new puzzle, so no one will do the same puzzle twice.

Jason showcased the three types of PoVs, asking Scott to choose.

Scott chose the Double Veto, as expected, which means that the last two PoV players will win a necklace.

Kryssie was up first in the order,and bravely picked Alex to play against her.  They had to stand in place until the bell sounded, when they could scramble to put together their 4-piece puzzle and run to hit their buzzer to end the round.

This went FAST.  Alex killed it and Kryssie skulked off in defeat.

Then it was Danielle's turn.  She picked Scott to play against, and immediately apologized to him for having gas up there.

Danielle:  I'm sorry. It's the slop.

The red curtains behind them tried to open, and then closed a couple of times.  Apparently there is  someone back there setting up the puzzles between rounds and whoever is responsible for the curtains must be on drugs.  They laughed about it.

Danielle:  I feel like I"m in a bad high school play.

I don't know what Scott was up to, but Danielle beat him soundly.  Here she is running to hit her buzzer.

And this is Neeley, who was up next and challenged Alex.  It was very hard to snap a picture of the puzzles, because the cameras only showed them for brief flashes.  But Alex KILLED it again.

That girl is a puzzle comp BEAST.  It looks like Tetris, right?

Then Justin came up, and inexplicably picked Danielle as his opponent.  Danielle is supposed to be on his side in the game, so theoretically he should have picked Alex as an opponent.  Even though Alex works at the speed of light and would surely beat him.....

I thought he might let her win, so she could win the PoV, but that's not what happened.  Justin won, and there was an awkward silence as they waited to hear from Production about what they were supposed to do next.

At first Jason announced that Justin would now face Alex, but then mentioned that they will have two winners this week.  I think it was at this point that you could hear Danielle weeping from the sidelines. She was kneeling down, crying, as Shane tried to console her.  Of course.

An adult finally came on the intercom and said that since they were the last two players, Alex and Justin both won the PoV.

Jason went over and presented the Veto medallions, and Justin soon started exhibiting signs of winner's remorse.

I say "medallions' because there didn't seem to be a necklace involved.  Maybe production only has one necklace. Or maybe whoever was responsible for operating the curtain this afternoon forgot to put a second necklace on his dollar store shopping list.  Who knows.

Justin:  I didn't realize that was gonna happen...I didn't mean for that to go like that.

Jason:  Yeah, she's gonna be mad at you.

Scott announces that he only has 9 cigarettes left, and Jason tells him not to worry, as long as he's still around.  (I later heard Jason explain to Kryssie that cigarettes and food are currency in this game, so they need to remember that.  Like prison.)

Shane grabbed a puff of Jason's cigarette, exhaling a long plume of smoke.  Shane is sporting the pirate look today.

Shane's days are numbered in the game, but he doesn't know it yet.

Shane spent quite some time consoling Danielle, who was very hurt by Justin's actions during the PoV comp.

Danielle:  Why would Justin do that to me?

Shane:  He didn't know...he's fucking retarded...he wasn't paying attention to the rules.

Jason came in and gave Danielle a hug, telling her they'll try to figure it all out.

Jason actually knows what Scott plans to do, but he wants to get Scott to target Danielle, rather than Shane.

Oh, and Justin was eating a sandwich that Kryssie asked a lot of questions about.  He asked her if she wanted a bite,and she admitted that she did, even though she just ate.

Justin: Okay...then go ahead and do it..take a bite....bite it really good.

  1. Justin did try to let Danielle win and even rearranged his puzzle when he was one piece away from winning. However, he must have thought he was being too obvious or something? The whole thing was bizarre. I'm not a Danielle fan, but maybe he'll use it on her to smooth this all over?
