At bb9dish, we cover the Big Brother Live Feeds, so much of what we write could be considered a spoiler for those who only watch the broadcast on CBS. Now, we don't understand why anyone would choose to do that, since it's like forming an opinion based on 1/10,000th of the information, and they could at least try the feeds for free, but what do we know?!

Josh Strategy: Force a Penalty Nom

4:14pm BBT
Natalie & Joshuah
Josh has been reading the BB handbook, looking for a way to save himself. In the handbook, he discovered that if he eats while on slop, he gets an automatic penalty nomination... He shares this information with Natalie..

    ***Incidentally, Jen tried this with the Turkey Burger Last Season. It did not result in a penalty nom, but a penalty vote. Surprisingly, no one from BB has bothered to change the rule book. Or perhaps, her case was special since her slop was as a result of a promise made during a veto comp that helped her win that veto and stay in the house.

Josh: So, if I go in and eat a burger, I get a penalty nom for next week, and I automatically wont be allowed to play in HoH or PoV... Will you break the tie and keep me this week?

Natalie says she will. Natalie wants to talk to Ryan and Adam about it, but Josh nixes that idea, and tells her this is just between the 2 of them. Nat agrees to do it, 100%.

Further, Josh is plenty pissed at Sharon for her sitting out and talking smack about him, and he's planning a rather large and dramatic explosion for this evening...

Josh: I need to stay, and this is the way for me to do that.

Natalie confirms she wont say anything...

Josh is planning to break down and cry, then eat a huge burger. He imagines everyone will be trying to stop him... Natalie says she'll pull out the rule book after he does it, and show her discovery about the penalty nom to Ryan.

Cut to:
4:30pm BBT
Ryan & Natalie
Ryan comes over to ask Natalie if Josh was working her too hard. She says everything's fine.

Natalie tells Ryan nothing about Josh's plan.

Carolyn, somebody posted on Jokers that eating while on slop would only get you a penalty vote and not a penalty nomination. Is this true?

Man is Josh slick or what? If he does this it ensures him another week in the house! Smart guy!

Lets see if he goes through with it!

Brilliant. Seriously...absolutely brilliant. And it makes me happy because it keeps a James allie in the house for one more week.

Hey lovely Carolyn, Sorry if I got ahead of myself.

I'm still sticking to my previous comment: Looks like Josh is going to take a head first leap into a penalty nom. No one can say he's being carried or b-feeding him in this game.

Eat Josh Eat!!!

The live feeds are going to be raging tonight and I can't friggin wait!

That's actually kind of smart. I would keep him for another week if I knew he couldn't win HOH or the veto. Go Josh, GO!!

what is with this Natalie why is she making these deals with Josh she should just keep on saying we'll see or lets see what happens she is starting to piss me off

But, when Jen ate while she was on slop last season, she was on the block at the time and they read the rule book, determined the same thing, and Jameka (who was up against her at the time) was mad, saying she had screwed her over. So BB gave Jen an extra vote instead of the penalty nom. Why wouldn't that same thing happen again?

Anonymous Genie said...

ok. Natalie is seriously wigging me out. I am sure none of us thought she would be such a player. Is she psyching Josh out? Or is she psyching everyone else? I can't see this turning out well for her either way. Maybe I'm a little dense but how is getting a penalty nom in any way going to make it a tie, or help Josh to stay?

p.s. Thank you Carolyn for the new commentary guidelines. Those comments about James were messing with my vibe. I prefer to base my opinions of how each person carries him/herself in the game not outside.

I think this is stupid. Why? Doesn't matter if James wins HOH next week, he loses his ally. James would then have to throw HOH cause his HOh will be a waste!

Sorry but then Josh will have no allies! This is a stupid stupid plan! All he has to do is ensure Ryan/Adam THINK and realize there is an ALL GIRLS alliance and vote out SHARON because they know JOSH will nominate SHIELA and NATALIE and not THEM.

If Josh eats, I hope Sharon stays. I hope she realizes she CANNOT nominate James if she wants one more week of safety. James won't nominate her, so why should she nominate him? She should nominate Ryan/Adumb if she wins HOH.

I hope this doesn't happen. I would rather Sharon stay.

I hope Big Brother pulls a Jen and gives him a penalty nomination.

I don't get it. If all this does is prove that Josh is giving up POV/HOH for next week, then why would he do this? Because they will just say yea we'll be on your side but then not vote for him and he's screwed... Right? Am I missing something here?

5:05 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

esco - if anyone but james wins hoh, it'll be james v josh on the block, and once again house v james for veto.

if josh eats, then sharon can realize what he is doing and eat too.

Thanks for pointing the change out genie and thank you Carolyn for making the change.

Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday.

BB seriously needs to address this rule. Surely this rule is meant to apply when the offense is committed when the offender is not on the block. If BB does not take care of this rule like they did last year, Sharon gets screwed like Jameka would have been. The can't treat this situation differently. It would be bad PR if nothing else.
I can't believe BB did not re-work the wording on that ruling after last year's experience. They need to get up to snuff and fast! Josh should receive one extra penalty VOTE like Jen did last year. If BB does the right thing and rules the same as they did last year and Josh eats tonight, Josh will vote HIMSELF out of the house! Now that's what I call screwing yourself over! Way to go, Dumb Bell!

I thought Jen got a penalty vote last year too!

Josh may just be sending himself home.

5:21 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

It's seriously time for josh to go home regardless of what he eats (slop or burger ... zzzz) - he's been dead wood from the beginning.

If (and this is a big if) pinky wins HOH next week we can be sure that alliances will start shifting fast - as we've seen in past seasons when the game starts to wind down expect the unexpected regarding alliances.

Meanwhile, no more scary josh personal grooming feeds ... pls!

Maybe I'm suffering from "Old Timers" (sorry couldn't resist) but didn't Jen get evicted after getting the penalty nom? So how exactly did that work in her favour?

5:24 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I just don't get why Ryan and Adam think it might be better to have Josh in the game. When another endurance competition comes up, wouldn't they rather have both Natalie AND Sharon competing against James?

We see Ryan and Adam do their "workouts" (what a joke!) all the time. All they do is arms and chest. They do no legs, abs, cardio or anything that requires stamina. Hell, even the 45-year old Sheila outlasted both of them in the disco ball comp...

If Sharon leaves, I'd like to see Ryan or Natalie follow her out the next week.


5:36 PM  
Blogger Esco said...

I think that Josh will be voted out either way. Natalie is just messing with him, they'll make him get a penalty and STILL vote him out.

Now if they said, OK James will get a penalty nomination, THEN they should do it.. but not this way. Even if Josh eats, James could still win HOH and have Josh to help him. Josh hasn't won anything this whole time by himself, what makes him think that he would even come close to winning HOH/POV anyways?

5:38 PM  
Anonymous LindsayLuvsBB said...

I find Josh a lot more entertaining to watch then Sharron... Plus I am really getting annoyed with the fact that Sharron has now decided to jump on the God train with Natalie. She kept saying before veto... God will not let James win. Come on Sharron how do you know what God will let happen. She is driving me insane! I really really hope she goes.

Plus I don't understand why everyone is mad at Josh for screwing over Sharron. He is trying to save himself and isn't that the whole point of the game!

Go Josh Go... I hope he finds some way to stay!

This rule loop hole reminds me of the old WWF. Just knock out the referee and he can't give your oponent the win!

If this works for Josh... he is doing the best move of the game so far. Brilliant and makes sense if allowed by BB. At least it gives him another chance to fight. And if not, he'll be leaving and may as well eat real food. ;-)

it would be so funny if "Team Christ" actually tells just that if he eats they'll vote sharon out so he eats, and then he gets voted out of the house regardless..that would suck for him

nat changes her mind every minute she crazy, how can u play like that

6:29 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I'm like the others who don't understand how this will save Josh.

Ryan, Adam and Sheila are still gonna vote him out either way. And as mentioned, couldn't Sharon pull the same stunt?

I gotta give Josh credit for not just giving up. He's definietly the funniest HG and most interesting to watch. I may stop watching when he's gone.

6:30 PM  
Blogger N2RealityTV said...

Yikes! I didn't fully think out how the HG's would react if Josh did eat real food. Last season Jenious did it out of spite and anger, but Josh is doing it as strategy.

Hmmm... we shall see.

Mucho kudos and respect to you Carolyn, thank you so much for all of your hard work.

They cant give you a penalty nom when you're on the block. Sorry Josh fans:(

Blogger Beth & Eric said...

karac -- I don't think Nat is changing her mind... I think she is playing smart. She is playing all sides, and no one has called her on it and/or figured it out yet! I know I may be the only one, but part of me seriously thinks that her ditziness is an act (like she said in the DR on tonight's episode)...

I don't want Josh to be evicted! He's so freakin' entertaining! I know that he has said some horrible things in this game (but who hasn't? Maybe Sharon?) but he is so charming and really should be a politician like that HOH comp last week! He wins me over every time and I think it'll be boring without him! :(

Another slap in the face from Josh to Sharon. Plus he wants to go off on her? This guy takes the cake. Send his ass home!

7:28 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

This doesn't make any sense!! If he eats a burger (or anything) doesn't that mean he will get a penalty vote and end up being evicted this week? It doesn't mean it will save him! What is he thinking?!?!

7:51 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I was under the impression that what Josh says is true about the penalty nom, but not till next week. If he were not on the block, they would not take off someone who was already there this week to replace them with Josh. This week is set. As for Jen's penalty vote, that was for destroying Dick's cigarettes, not eating the Turkey burger.

You're so right about Ryan and Baller's insufficient workouts, but what killed them on the disco ball challenge was pure weight.

That's why the girls usually win those "carry your weight" endurance comps.They are not only lighter but generally more flexible. Natalie should've taken it. It was pure will that kept James up there.
