It's Day 84, Let's Get to Know Each Other. #BB18

It's really just the same-old, same-old in the house right now.  I really question the network's decision to make the season so long....the extended days might be what CBS needed to fill some blanks on their September prime time schedule, but I'm not sure that Production pulled through with enough content to make this longest-ever season work, particularly with the two extra Friday episodes.  The first Friday episode was chock-full of Battle Back excitement, but the second Friday episode was chock-full of cringe-inducing douche chills for me.

Anyway, the house guests are bored, too, and have been working hard to find things to talk about. And it's kind of surprising what they do and don't know about each other.  Nicole, Corey and Paul had a long talk about their suspicions that everyone in the house has "a secret".  They think Michelle's parting words that she is "Dan Gheesling's cousin-in-law" is some sort of important revelation.

But even if Michelle was "cousin-in-laws" with Dan Gheesling, isn't that a Big So What?  (Shout out to BB3's Roddy Mancuso with that expression.)  Nicole says that Dan's influence is surely why Michelle won that Care Package, because Dan must have urged his Twitter followers to support Michelle.

Well, turns out none of that is true.  You can read this article for more information about Michelle's little joke, but here is an interesting snippet from the article.

Dan tweeted that he might swing by the Jury House this week, but then abruptly said his trip was off just two days later.  Maybe Production told Dan to hush it up, so they could "surprise" us all with a special jury segment featuring Dan.  Or maybe they're going to have Dan himself host the Jury deliberation to get some mileage out of Big Meech's crazy comment.  Or maybe none of that will happen. Who knows.  (I'm sounding as suspicious as Nicole here.)
