The Overnight Report

Good Morning and Happy Live Show Day! It still feels weird to say that on a Wednesday, and given the likely eviction tonight, I'll admit to lacking gusto. I just have to remind myself of the following:

  1. Hate the game, not the player.
  2. It's just a game.
  3. Everyone is in there to win it.
That said, after watching and recapping the disappointing disaster that was Alex's last stand last night (clip), followed by Matt completely taking over the situation and working it to his benefit (clip), I sat here witnessing Amanda make her tearful impassioned effort with Allison (clip1, clip2, clip3).

Amanda pulled out all the stops: tears, remorse, guilt... you name it.

As much as I wanted her effort to mean another week in the house for her and Alex, I'm not buying Allison. Not at all. Allison was overly kind, and even while I was watching, I just kept having the sinking feeling that Allison was just using the opportunity to squeeze a little more revenge out of the whole scenario... building up Amanda's hope just a little bit more, so it'll be that much sweeter when she shows her the door.

Unbeknownst to Amanda, even while she was campaigning to Allison, Josh had already thrown in the towel (clip) to Ryan in the Living Room. Worse yet, Allison had just come from doing a Storage Room "done deal" happy dance with Sheila (clip).

Has Allison got game? Absolutely. Do I wish it was directed towards the removal of just about anyone else? You betcha. Even so, it must be acknowledged: Allison ran the roost this week. There is just no denying it.

The Big Picture results of this week of BB, outside of the evictions:
  • Allison (and Ryan's) stock rose the most - She was the woman everyone was after all week. The Nominee with Alli's vote stays... it didn't have to be this way, but the other HGs virtually handed her a crown and made her queen. Negative: her reason to evict A/A is 100% personal - 0% strategy.
  • Joshuah (and Sharon's) stock plummeted. He has made himself and Sharon into targets by getting too involved & being an overt gamer. If they don't win HoH, they're on too many hit lists to not get nominated.
  • Matt and Natalie proved themselves. Matt's more than a pretty face. He came to play, and he means to stay. He campaigned without being annoying to the other HGs, built alliances and "friendships," brought all the necessary votes together, and made them solid before Alex and Amanda even entertained the notion... in the 11th hour.
What say you?

I personally can not stand Allison, I think she is a sneak. I feel alls you can do is apoligize in life and Amanda has apoligized to her several times. I wish Amanda would say just in spite of Allison. I do like Ryan though, it sucks he has a stupid partner. I do not like Natalee, I think she should go home, she is a pig who has no self respect. I mean come on leave a little bit to the imagination. I think there is a bunch of twists heading our way. I cant wait to see what they are.

you gotta sort of in some way respect allison for playing the game the right way. as far as alex his mistake was thinking that matt wouldnt turn on him when they were put up together. no matter who leaves tonight its gonna stink. i wish they would just let amanda and natty go and somehow keep alex and matt as a couple..lol

I really dislike Allison. I really wish that Alex would have stood up and said "you have your mind made up, I hope someone turns on you and I stay, thats your as*"
Then Amanda crying - priceless.... in retrospect it is exactly what she deserves. She spent 10 days on top of the world telling everybody how she would take them to the final 4??? She was so certain that she was staying and treated everyone else in the house like they were crap on the bottom of her shoe.
Having said that I would really like to see Alex and Amanda stay. I think that Alex is a great guy and Amanda has seen the error of her ways. It is not that I dislike Matt and Natt I just think that they are stronger competitors and they are the smartest choice. Plus, if they don't get Natti out of that house soon she is going to be ruined. She has shared too much, shown too much, and 'gave' too much. I am embarrassed for her.
One more time I really dislike Allison. Listening her talk last night made my ears bleed.

Anyone else see that Adam lost his job because of the comment he made about mentally handicap people?!?! Natalie annoys me with her voice and how she trys to portray herself one way and then the next minute she's the total opposite. Plus I love the fact she said she doesn't want Matt but yet a lot of the time it seems like he's got a shadow. Amanda annoyed me a lot in the beginning, but now Natalie has annoyed me even more. Matt thinks that he's gods gift to women and it seems like he's planning on using that for as long as possible (it will only work so long). I was thinking about if they are going to win as couples or not. Since I have been hearing both ends as to whether it will be a full or short season I have no opinion on that, but I was wondering if they might have a couple as the winners, but then one of the people in that couple is the big winner. Maybe America gets to vote?!?! Or maybe even America votes for the couple and the HG's vote for who they think should win the big prize. Just an idea though.

and i cannot stand allison. talk about a power trip!! amanda wasn't nearly as bad on her power trip.

natalie is the most annoying hg i might have ever seen. the night of the strip show she said the same exact thing 400 times.

CAROLYN... i have a question and i hope you give the answer i am hoping for. cbs keeps up with the major bb sites don't they?? they are probably aware that america is falling apart at not having alex there anymore, and if so, do you think they might pull a kaysar??

america HATED his oust too, and they changed up the game plan i think last minute to get him back in there.

It's been said that Sheila is an actress. Sharon is the actress. She is not the nice one everyone thinks she is. She spies and then runs faster than a cheeta to either Joshuah or Chelsia and whispers everything she heard. Then she can put on the most innocent face. She bothers me almost as much as Joshuah. Sharon can hold her temper better than Josh. I feel sorry for Alex, but will be glad to see Amanda leave. I am sick of her poor little me act. Matt is not my favorite, but we all know his type. He has not really acted out of character. Everything he has done has come as no surprise. I am tired of seeing little "Miss. Religious" showing her stuff. If Natalie is truely religious, then Huey Heffners' going to heaven.

I disagree with you Carolyn. I don't think Allison was anyone's #1 or #2 target this week. It was pretty obvious that A/A were the #1 target. And now I think Allison has solidified herself as a #1 target for at least J/S and as much as I don't like Josh, I hope he goes after her. I don't think there's anything noteworthy about Allison's gameplay. She's alligning herself with Matt, who has openly badmouthing her and has already proved himself not to be trusted. This "move" Allison has made this week is going to ultimately screw her.

You can't blame Allison for Alex and Amanda being stupid. They burned their bridges when they were HOH. Alex is to blame for the mess they are in. If he wasn't jealous of Parker and convinced Matty not to use the POV, they would have the numbers. Amanda didn't help with running her mouth.

Alex and Amanda are to blame for them going home and no one else.
They have played a stupid game and deserve to go home.

Allison is running circles around everyone else. The person in the best position is Ryan. He hasn't had to do anything. If it goes to individuals he is not on anyones bad list.

There was one comment made last night that I kinda agree with. I think it was Amanda and Sheila talking about who wears the pants in their couple. Both agreed the women wear the pants in each of the couples. The only contradiction would be Joshuah and Sharon and Matt and Natalie. Sharon is thankful to be back on the show so she has let Josh lead for now. Natalie is just a little puppie following her master, oh excuse me soulmate, whereever he leads.

I think Allison and Matt know each other outside of the house. At first I didn't think so because Matt doesn't seem smart enough to pull it off. But...Allison (the recovering gambler) knows how to bluff. And she is not budging even a little on sending Matt home. I think this could be a huge twist.

I agree with the statement: Matt has campaigned without being annoying. That was Parker's problem. He was just so annoying and negative that we were all glad to see him go.

I am wondering about the sequestering though. We know Sharon and Jacob were sequestered from the beginning. Jen and Parker haven't been seen. So they have to be in sequester. So I am wondering when they will show back up. And will Sharon have to deal with Jacob again?

I posted this in the wrong comments section:

I'm really shocked at the support for Chelsea, James and Josh. Do you people watch the feeds? I don't mean that sarcastically at all, I'm really inquisitive if you do.

Those three have said horrendous stuff (making fun of Amanda's dad's death more than five times, goofing on hiding food from Amanda so that she passes out again, etc.) but it still seems they have support.

They are completely hypocritcal too-- especially Josh -- saying that they cant trust Sheila or Allison because they lie... when that's exactly what they've been doing for how long?

I have the fortunate opportunity to watch the live feeds at work, TiVo Showtime AD, and thanks to Carolyn, read every update that I happen to miss in the wee wee hours.

To me, the lines between good and evil seem to be drawn between Matt/Natty and Alex/Amanda on one side, Chelsia/James Sharon/Josh on the side of evil.

Allison definitely is annoying, bitchy, self absorbed and condescending, but I really feel like this turn put her on the good guys team. Josh/James/Chelsia are flipping out at this possible alliance between Ally and the rest of the house, but isn't that what they themselves had? So it's ok for them to lie, say horrific stuff, backstab, gossip, talk sh*t, and form alliances, but when the rest of the house does it they flip out?

Other than Adam's general comment towards autistic people (which again, was not targeted at a specific person, but a general group. Still wrong, but not as potent as mimicking the tragic death of someone's father)there has been no hurtful comments.

At no point in time did Allison say she'd hide Alex's cross. That was Chelsia, who's morbid sense of humor would be more tolerated if not done purposefully to emotionally scar someone. Yes, I know Amanda shouldnt have told people her weak spot, but Chelsia has made FIVE comments about it now, including one yesterday.

And I also think James is beyond creepy. His interactions with Chelsia at some poitns in the bedroom were so creepy that she was called to the DR in the middle of their sessions. Coincidence? I think not, BB was definitely interviening. Both times she was drunk; their make out sessions were broken up by calls to the DR, one that left Chelsia crying afterwards.

Gay porn-deception aside, James has also been a complete ass to people in the house as well. He's been on a power trip this week, and has made comments to several people in the house (specifically sheila and matty) trying to act like a hard ass with the power. But note how quickly that changed around during the HoH pow-wow last night. When he seen the tides were turning, he mentioned NOTHING of matty's comment. Even after telling Alex he would back him up.

I just don't get the support for C/J and J/S... they really seem like they're terrible human beings, and continue to prove that every day on the live feeds.

My big questions is who is the girl in Natalie's original bio posted on CBS site. You know the one about how she carries her bible everywhere and how religious she is. I guess her bio like James's was never checked out.All that a side. I can not stand Matt. He talks his way out of every situation and they continue to buy it. At least Allison is playing game and not just conserned about making friends or hooking up. Isn't that what BB is all about the game playing?

7:35 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Many people like to criticize Natty, but I find her free-spirited and open-book ways refreshing. She may not be the smartest when it comes to discretion, but that makes her real, unique and a beautiful human being.

I know I have a few "secrets" that I would never tell anyone, not even my best friend, and for her to voice her quirks, and not so great moments in life, without being embarrassed, shows me that she does have strength in at least some areas of her life. I just think it says something that she is willing to say/do things in front of the world.

I just wish people were more accepting to differences in others.

I couldn't stand Allison from day one. So I just hate her more now. She is very condescending and thinks her shit doesn't stink. As far as her saying no one ever called her ugly I find that hard to believe.
Matt thinks he is God's gift to women pleaseeeeeee. He wishes he had half of Alex's looks and charm.
Ryan is Allison's puppet. He goes along with anything Allison says. He has no backbone. I think it's time he grew a pair. Shelia is another one of Allison's puppets.

Come on people. Don't hate the player, hate the game. Allison is playing a good game. She was able to turn the house upside down. If she just went along with the house we might as well be watching American Idol and voting off according to popularity. She makes the game nail biting and interesting. Look Just last week Josh was in control. Now what?

7:48 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Why is everyone anti-Allison? She went from the block to the most powerful person in the house in a matter of days, and she's not even HoH.

While I do find her to be annoying at times, she's so thickheaded that she's unbeatable. She's singlehandedly taking down the Offensive Alliance (James/Cheslia and Josh) by flipping the switch on her own strategy -- to evict Matt and Natalie.

Then, when she switched the target back to A/A, she flexed her muscle by making herself the swing vote and creating a general fear of her in the house.

Also, she shot down Alex's (extremely poor) attempt to throw Matt under the bus, and still found a way to get a possible jury vote by smoothing things out with Amanda.

I love how she makes her point, and rubs it in your face that you didn't align with her. She's a bitch, but I feel like she's a bitch on the good guy's side now.

She's not offensive like Chelsia James and Josh (multiple suicide jokes about A's father, hiding the cross comment, etc.)--which requires no skill at all.

Anyone can say awful sh*t, that doesn't impress me. What Alli did these pass two days has.

It's funny about Allison--she thinks she's really smart and playing the game, but she's soooo condescending and smug. Too much so for this early in the game-especially not knowing how things might change.
I think it sucks that either one of the couples up will leave but they gotta go sometime.
I'll miss Alex and even Amanda.
I hope Josh and Sharon win HOH, I don't agree (respectfully) with you Carolyn, I think that they are by far the best players--shoudl they be more careful? yes but I love them and their ablility to rile things up and then retreat to the hot tub.
Thanks as always for the great recaps--it's interesting to see how differently we all see things, even though we're watching the same feeds :)

you know, if Josh and Sharon REALLY wanted them to stay (a/a) they should have used the veto on them. bottom line. You should NEVER assume you have the votes that far away from the actual eviction. if they though a&a could get them further in the game, they should have taken them off the block. I am very disappointed that they didn't use the veto.

Adam has been
fired from his job
.

February 27, 2008 -- THE "Big Brother" contestant who stirred up a controversy when he called autistic children "retards," has been fired from his job.

But Adam Jasinski, who worked for the United Autism Foundation, doesn't know he's been canned.

He is sequestered in the "Big Brother" house in LA, cut off from contact with the outside world, in keeping with the show's rules.

The foundation announced his firing on its Web site yesterday.

At least one advertiser pulled out of the show following the public outcry over the crude remark and several autism groups even called for CBS to cancel the reality series because producers chose to air the remark in an edited version of the program.

Jasinski was heard on the program saying that he could call children with autism whatever he liked because he worked with them.

"Mr. Jasinski will no longer work for or represent the United Autism Foundation since he caused tremendous damage to UNIAF," the announcement read.

Please be honest ladies, is the fascination with Alex solely based on looks? I'm a guy, and I can admit there's been times where I've followed a reality contestant because of looks (Season 2's Lisa)and nothing else.

Alex is really bad at this game. The evil alliance gave him a gun, loaded it for him, and his hand shook so badly he didn't come close to hitting the target. He's a really nice guy, but sucks at this game.

Carolyn I have to agree with you 100%. Hate the player, not the game. As much as people may dislike Allison or Matt for whatever personal reasons, you have to admit that they are the only ones that have real game in this house, and they proved it last night. Allison had the whole house against her last week and was almost evicted, and now she's pretty much running the house and she's not even HOH. Matt is the one they all wanted out and and they did everything in their power to get a 3-0 vote to evict, he managed to work people over in a smart way, good campaigning, not annoying and attacking alex and amanda, building "friendships" along the way, while alex and amanda didn't do anything until last minute, and even that was LAME! Matt managed to talk his way out of it, and Allison didn't buy their story one bit either. I've been saying from the beginning the only 2 people that actually have game in this house are Matt and Allison and if Alex and Amanda get evicted tonight, this will just go to show it. And as someone mentioned earlier, I wish they could get rid of natalie and amanda, and keep matt AND alex cause I hate to see Alex go.

Actually, the organization Adam worked for doesn't even exist anymore. It closed months ago, before BB started. Adam had a 3 month gig that was over before he got into the house. The guy who started the organization lost a ton of money and shut it down after 9 months. He is under investigation to determine whether it was a real 501(c)(3) (nonprofit under IRS). Adam and CBS just used this nonsense for show.

Ironically, the whole thing has been very good publicity for legitimate disability organizations. Whether that is a good or bad this is for you to judge, I guess.

As for Allison, she is smug and condescending, but so what? She is playing well. This game isn't about who is the most appealing personality. But no one in the house is as smug, condescending, obnoxious, or mean as Joshuah. I can't figure out why he hasn't been called out on this. Maybe because he doesn't have the power he imagines he has. He will probably have his turn as the villain eventually.

I am tired of hearing all of their voices! I had to turn off the feeds yesterday because I was so sick of listening to Allison – though I still think she is doing a good job. It sure is fascinating how fast power shifts.

anon @ 7:32 AM: I fully support James. I find it interesting that you are splitting the house into "good" and "evil". Are you Amber from last season?

Every single person in that house has flaws. Allison, by the way, was the original person to suggest that they either throw the food comps or hide the food if Amanda stayed. She admitted as much to Josh and James at the pool table yesterday. As for Adam, at first I thought everyone was jumping him for no reason. Then I heard how absolutely vile and disgusting his rhetoric is towards women and gays and now I'm done.

I still think that the majority of the people that have a problem with James, have a problem with the porn. I do not understand why you think he was on a power trip. He has been bullied all week by Matt and sometimes Alex. They have been trying to intimidate him. I get the feeling that James has been treated this way his whole life by other men. It's sad, sad, sad.

As for the creepiness in the bedroom - get a grip. She was totally into it. They have made out several times. Not just the times she was drunk.

Oh, I meant to mention this. Allison has been handing Alex and Amanda an oportunity over and over. She has gone as far as she can without saying "can you make me a better offer," (though she has practically gone that far). She has tried her best to make a "business deal" and they just don't get it.

Having been in business for so long it keeps hitting me over the head. Maybe they are too young and inexperienced, they don't get the cues. Too bad for them. Amanda really should know better, working with lawyers all day.

My favorite players in the house are Alex, Ryan, and Sharon. Alex got screwed by Amanda's big mouth. Ryan doesn't talk about or down to anybody, and I love his giggle. Sharon is just glad to be in the house again, I think she knows more about the sequester house than lets on. I do think Allison and Matt know each other outside the house. She would be crazy to think they have a chance to beat Matt/Nat in competitions. They are one of the strongest teams. Allison drove me nuts last night. She was overly nice to Amanda. Nobody is that nice to a person after the way Amanda treated her. It just seemed fake, especially when her and Sheila were dancing about Amanda going home right before that. Nat makes showtime fun. Last year was soooooooo boring.Josh and Sharon should have stopped while they were ahead, I think they will a be a target this week. James and Chelsia are a strong team for the fact they get along great.
Sure hope Alex stays, maybe bb will through in a twist just for Alex because I think he got the raw end of the deal.

mikeinbama@7:02 I totally agree with your statements about A/A.

I think that people have forgotten/ignored what chaos Amanda caused in the house. Amanda fans can not justify her behavior, so they deflect the issue by blaming others(Alli, Chel, Alex). If Amanda had not been campaigning against her partner or gossiping to the point that she made enemies, things would have been different for them. Instead of acknowledging how much Amanda has contributed to the demise of their game, now her fans have started blaming Alex.

Allison has great insight concerning the game, so please do not blame her for playing the game the way it should be played. Theses HG know the consequences of their actions and they know that sometimes you have to do whatever it takes. They have seen BB before, so none of them can make excuses.

Amanda has not seen the error of her ways, I think that the producers must have had a really long talk with her about her behavior and how it was disrupting her partner. They must have told her that if she did not settle down, that they would take her off the show. That is the only way her major turn around can be explained.
I remember Alex telling Josh that nothing negative was going to come from them [A/A], so they must have talked to them the day that they wrote the HOH blog.

Allison is playing the game, you do have to give her credit, From the sounds of the girls talking doing their hair, A/A is out. I don't know if this is the best for Allison, unless they know more than we do.

Do all the hg stay sequestered the whole time. Is this the way it happend in all other bb?

I still think there is a twist, this show is going to fast if it is going to be a full season, sometime, I think they will split up and be on your own.

The fact that we like Alex is not only because he is handsome

HE IS DECENT... like Nick was last year. It's always that weird thing... women like the nice guy to bring home to mom and the bad boy (like ED) to play with. In the same way men have a fascination with Madonna vs the Whore. This house has neither of those two...

lots of in between.

Alex has not been a smart player... but he is a good guy... even when jealous of Parker early on. He doesn't play women like skanky Matt. He does not share secrets like disloyal Matt. This has 'killed' his game. He'll be rewarded when outside if not sooner.

Cliff,

Sure you can entertain Alex in your basement (if you can handle Amanda... put a tape on her mouth)... ONLY if you allow him to come back when we vote him back in. ;-)

Well Alli can feel all the power this week, but next week she's gone. Yes, we might finally have a real player in the game, but on the other hand...She forgets or doesnt care that MAtty could have directly saved her last week with the veto. Also, that he went back on his word to his own boy bout campaigning. Isnt it bro's b4 hoes?

And why are they not on Shelia and Adam as much? They're vote is just as valueable as Alli's...plus if they swayed them and Alli gave the minority vote, that would put an auto-target on her. All they would have to do is remind S/A how weak and vulnerable they are and cut a deal, along with the side bonus of targeting A/R... I would love to see the look on Allison's face with a 2-1 vote against NappyMatty.

I wish there was a DR feed for each time they went. Did anyone else find it excessive how many times they called each guest to the DR?

All and all these ppl have made their beds and dont realize that they are gonna have to get the stronger players out sooner or later, but if they dont take out NappyMatty this week, I'm not sure they will ever be able to. A/A would def be the ones I would keep, just from them NOT playing the game. Making it possible to get them out at ANY point, not just tonight.

And, while she's no Jenitard, I could handle 'em both. Rawr!

But, yeah, she'd need a gag.

I hate how sinister Alison is.
Ryan is her sheep as is the rest of the house.
It makes sense she is in Pharmasutical sales, Phizer is one of the most corrupt and dishonest corporations in the world.
That being said, my heart goes out to Alex, the whole talk in the HOH last night was just her stroking her ego, and toying with him for personal information.
She is the female equivalent of Henry the 8th, on the Tudors preview that constantly plays on showtime after dark.
The chopping block might as well be a real one at the rate she is going.
How sadisdic!! I like Ryan but she is the worst!!

Well said Tella. You can't only go by a persons looks. He has personality and I love his honesty as I did Dick's last year.
There is such a thing as playing a game with honor. Many hgs did in the past. Lisa being one of them as in season 1 with Eddie.

Alex is cute and besides being a chauvinist (how soon we forget that he spent days ordering Amanda around, telling her how he wants "his woman" to dress, and feeling her up in her sleep), is a really sweet guy. But what does that have to do with the game?

Nick?! Oh how we romanticize him. He was on the show for about 10 minutes and we have no idea what he would have been like if he actually played. He was loyal to Dani because he had the hots for her and pushed it even though she had a live-in BF (Dani was part of that, but I'm not talking about her). Then they stayed together for what, a month or two and he moved on to the next babe. I have nothing against Nick. He seemed like a good guy. But his saintly image seems a little over blown to me.

This show isn't "Cute Boys in Their 20's We'd Like to Date." And if it were (and I was 22 not 40), I'd pick James, who many not be as pretty, but he's a much more interesting person, IMHO.

I wish Allison would see the light. Don't VOTE for personal reasons.... Allison is getting on my nerves. She needs to be the next to go!

I LOVE A/A! They need to stay.

By the way, I did SEE that Adam lost his job! He deserved it. It wasn't right to use that hateful word...

Remember why Alex was placed on the block in the first place. We've heard several HGs say that it was Amanda and her behavior that got them where they are now. It doesn't look good when your own partner is campaigning against you and making enemies with other HGs(including the ones your own "alliance") after only just 1 week in the house. I would like Alex to stay, but I think that he would be more dedicated to the game if he had a different partner. His game was doomed from the day 1.

I completely agree with you about Allison's game play -- it is impeccable! She is clever and conniving and manipulative, and smart -- the things that make a great game player. Too bad I don't like her! I am just finding it really hard to root for her, because I haven't really liked her most of the time, since day 1. There are moments when I 'think' I could like her, but then my gut says, "NO!" Gotta trust my gut!

If it comes down to Matt and Allison running this game, it will be interesting to watch, but I won't be really 'into' the game like I was last season because I just can't root for either of them.

If they get rid of the people I like (pretty much just A/A right now) then I have no real interest in WHO wins. I'll still watch, but I won't really care how it plays out after A and A are gone -- UNLESS they bring someone back...bring on the twist CBS!

And can I just say that if Matty says to Alex one more time, "You're my BOY!" you all will know that screaming you are hearing is me! LOL Being his 'boy' is akin to getting kissed by the Godfather!

Yeah, and I laughed my head off when she was asking Alex what he intended to do with the money IF he won, because what people planned to do with the money is 'important' to her! LOL What's SHE going to do with it?

Thanks for the site updater. It was very touching. ALex's dad seemed liked by all who touched his life.

Peni I agree with your comment about using the veto if he really wanted them to stay. I think at that point they didn't care which couple left. They wanted one of the couples gone. You are right never assume.

"Negative: her reason to evict A/A is 100% personal - 0% strategy."

I love what you do here Carolyn, and you're awesome, but I disagree with this big time. She is "together" with Matt and Nat. I'm pretty sure she sees them as part of her group. Alex and Amanda are not. If Matt and Nat won HoH tonight, they wouldn't put up Allison and Ryan, but A&A would in a heart beat. And you know what, karma is a bitch in life and in this game, and Amanda is also leaving because karma is coming back to bite her in the butt. Alex has to pay that price, but oh well.

The more I look at how things have gone down with Matt/Nat not using the veto last week, to how things have developed this week, the more convinced I am that Allison and Matt are working together, and probably know each other from before the house. I think it is entirely possible the Allison's distain for Jen stems more from the way Jen threw her and Ryan's secret out the window the minute she felt he was threatened rather than using her head to find another way to save her secret partner. I think it gave her even MORE reason to 'show how it's done' by saving Matt THIS week with nothing more than her conniving wit. I really am believing Allison and Matt are secret partners....the things Allison has done this week don't make sense otherwise. She says 'strategically' she wants Matt gone, but she if voting A and A our for personal reasons? Not buyin' it -- even though that's her story and she's stickin' to it -- it doesn't make sense in the big picture, she has shown she is too smart to let personal reasons interfere with her game....

Mike you are so right. Allison reasons for getting rid of Amanda is personal. Not a great way to play the game. Time will tell. Josh wants her out and hopefully he will win hoh tonight. That will be worth watching. James you say. Homeless by choice and a gay porn star. Oh yea he is intelligent lol.

i know it's already done, but think it's worth noting that if allison was really thinking about how to flip this game, she and ryan and adam/sheila would vote to keep amanda and alex and let sharon and josh think they are voting with the majority and end up being the only vote to get rid of them. we all know the odd man out of the vote gets nominated the next week. this would also basically ensure her safety for a few weeks because josh/sharon would be the #1 target followed by james/chelsia.

it's not happening, but what do y'all think??

wow im really mad. i hate allison and ryan. i want them OUT. i love alex and i dont think the show is really worth watching anymore, but julie said there was a twist so im really hoping that they bring alex back in. i dont think this eviction could be blamed on anyone else but allison. i hope shes GONE. i think cbs is smart enough to realize that everyone loved amanda and alex and if they dont know that by now they will deff realize that when all there ratings go down next weeek. i really really reallly really hope amanda and alex come back [=

I have to admit... At The Beginning of This Game I liked Amanda and Alex... Unfortunately My feelings changed... OF COURSE not to Alex... (How Could ANY 1 Be mad at Him Long?)
But to Amanda... Then I seen that after Josh tore Her a new A hole, She REALLY did change.. And then The original feelings I had for Her came back... And I have ALWAYS liked Alli an Ryan.. UNTIL LAST NIGHT!!I still like Ry but, She truly showed Me Her TRUE colors... How dare Her hold grudges on ppl and Be sooo Conniving as She is being... Let's not forget... She is a Pro. Gambler or something of The sort... So She is actually The one Lying to EVERYONE in The house.. Or at least I've never Heard Her tell neone...But with that said.. All I can do is Pray that A/A come back OR At LEAST Alex.. He's good Eye Candy... lol I'd watch ANY show with Him on it!! LOL..

If the HG really wanted Amanda to stay, then they would not have been so easily swayed. I think that they all feel the same way that Alli feels, they were just too afraid to say what they really thought. With the way CBS edits the show, they didn't want Amanda to come out looking like a saint yet again.

I still don't understand how people can criticize Alli's actions, while at the same time ignoring all of the things that Amanda has done. Just the other day, she made a statement about Alex getting an STD from kissing Sharon. She wasn't joking, she was intentionally trying to hurt Sharon. None of her fans mentioned this, why? How come Amanda fans expect the other HGSs to follow a different set of standards than Amanda? Who in the house does not have anything personal against Amanda? Ryan and Adam maybe?

Don't forget that they were nominated because of her behavior towards her partner and other HGs during the first week in the house. Alex should return to the game and be allowed to play it with a new partner. I will admit that Amanda is a strong contender during physical competitions, but she does not know how to play the game. Gossiping about your partner and making enemies with members of your "alliance" is not playing the game.

So what is the deal with this Alex fascination? I just don't see it. He's kind of blah. Oh, well.

Allison will be voted out sometime soon. The spinless will soon wisen up and band against her. It is inevitable. She isn't even a great player. Its just that the other HG's really blow at playing.

Also, if everyone isn't careful Matt is gonna win this game. How many times have we seen the egotistical womanizer take it all and without even hiding his actions? Does Dr. Will ring a bell? They need to get him out now before it is too late. Be warned!Never underestimate the power of the evil duche bag to sway the votes from the stupid smitten kittens. Happens everytime.
