BB9Dish - Ya Gotta Have it!

The DishChicks are back and ready to blog Big Brother 9!!
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?! Check bb9dish often for Updates, videos, pics, chops, opinions, etc. xoxo, C-n-C

Big Brother 9 is On!
Let the mind games begin!!

Checking In, News & Thanking YOU

Hello BB Lovers. :) It's just past noon on Friday, and the boys are still sleeping. Lettem rest. They, as all BB finalists before them, had a rough night following the Jury Q-n-A.

FYI, The Feeds went to Flames at 12:53pm BBT. BB is very likely waking the boys... Just a heads up. ;) Then again, maybe not. The feeds came back to sleeping Adam and Ryan in less than a minute. Definitely not enough time for wake up music.

I'll be here checking in periodically over the next couple days, but mostly, I'm going to be working on getting the new BBDish site for ready and into shape for next season...

I want to make sure everyone knows I will definitely be here doing a Live Show Spoiler for the Finale on Sunday Night... and hanging out with everyone afterwards... and announcing a few contest winners. :)

Thanks so much for being a part of the dish this season... This was far and away our best and most successful yet, and I have each and every one of you to thank for it.

One more quick clip from last night... Adam puts the official stamp on the Cuban coffee I've been raving about all season... although he spells and pronounces his brand of choice incorrectly. It's Pilon, and it's pronounced pee-lohn, not pile-on. My fave, as you know, is Bustelo Supremo, just so we're clear on that. ;) Pilon actually bought Bustelo a couple years ago, so it's all the same, but taste wise, ya gotta go Bustelo.

This is my first comment, but wanted you to know that "The Dish" is my favorite site for updates! I've deleted the other update sites and now really totally on you. And what a great job you do! I'm going out of town on Sunday, and will be in a big jet plane when the finale happens....but I'll be sure to check in at the dish as soon as we land!

This was my first season of BB...and i got so ADDICTED...i think this site is one reason for that, i am on the internet constantly (and on my mobile internet when not at home) so i was able to stay completely updated!
I checked out tons of sites but once i found this one, i quit looking! I am now a BB fan for life...and DISH will be the only site i read!
You are great for everything you do, and all of us fans would not survive without your hard work and dedication to this blog and the HG's.
Thanks times a million!

I love that you let us comment & during the lulls, you give us things to do like the "Shag, Marry & push off a cliff" thing. The polls are great too & look forward to them to see if I am feeling the same way as most or in the minority! Thank you so much, I know it takes alot of time & effort, so I want you to know that it is appreciated!

i put this on the other section but i feel it is more deserving here..

last year we were in the chat rooms and someone had told us about this site.my husband then nearly dies and was hospitalized for two months and this is the only way that we got to see what was going on and what we needed to vote for..we have told everyone that we know about this site and we only hope that maybe they used it.we used this site to get our feeds this year in hopes that it would support carolyn..so thank you carolyn and others for the help in keeping us in touch with what is going on because in the hospital this is what kept us going last season because it kept us concentrating on something else other than our problems.although every body has different opinions it was still great getting to know every ones's different opinions..

Although this is my first time commenting, I have been reading this website all season long. This is my first season of BB, and I'm hooked mostly because of this blogspot. I started watching the shows online, then clips on youtube, which is how I found you! I just felt a little guilty enjoying your blogspot (and depending on it!) without saying thanks...so thanks!

I kept waiting for someone from this community to create a youtube montage of Sheila.

Maybe a sandwich of "I'm a 45 (now 46) y/o single mom!" between "knows this" and "know that" with some "frick" and "frig" sprinkled for seasoning.

If this has been done, could someone send me the link, please?

If not, that would make a fun video clip...

I accidently came accross this site and I have been hooked all season. You guys give the best dish. LOL

It was so nice to be able to know what was going on in the house just by the click of a mouse.

You are the best!

I think BB made Adam and Ryan look good on the shows but behind the backs of the HG's and especially since they won the final 2 spot I think they are selfish! F-him and F-her is all I hear out of them. Come on....you won. Be a big boy and understand the loosers are a little upset and want to know they are giving the money they lost out on to a worthy person. If they could hear these 2 guys now they'd probably say screw the $7500, I'm not voting to give the money to either one of them. The only one left would be James to decide who gets it.

Ryan and Adam both turned out to be A**holes in my opinion.

Thanks Carolyn for the constant updates. Very appreciated!

Carolyn-you're the best! Couldn't we just take Adam and Ryan's earnings and give them to Carolyn instead? That's the best option IMO.

Just to get back to the jury-I can't wait until Sunday!

I don't get why Adam and Ryan don't understand why most of the jury is upset. Most people would be, and I credit James for being nice. It's natural to be pissed off if you came close to winning a lot of money and then didn't.

We know Ryan and maybe Adam would be bitter as hell if they were in the jury house too.

Personally, I'm glad "Hoops" finally came out. The game's over, and everyone but Sheila, Josh, James and Chelsia said some nasty stuff about her (she didn't deserve it IMO). The way Adam and Ryan talk about people, they deserve to have some of the jury rip on them.

If I was Natalie, I'd be pissed at them too.

The only reason why Matt wasn't bitter was because "his team" were in final 2. If Sharon/Chelsia/James/Josh or even Sheila made the final 2, Matt would have been a jerk to them during the questioning period.

This is the nature of BB!

Carolyn-I'll say it again, thanks a lot!!

This is my first time commenting but have been reading your site all year and just love it. I now only go to this one when I want to see whats going on in the BB house. I have watched BB since the first episode. A long time, nine seasons, going on the tenth, soon to be. Thank you so much for all that you do to keep us informed. I bet sometimes you must think you live in the BB house.
This was not one of the best seasons but I did enjoy it. Not sure who I want to win. I didn't care for James but I do think he by far played the best game out of all of them. I hope Shelia watches bb tapes and see what a fool she made of herself. They all back stab and make alliances but since they didn't win they start picking on the winners. I do not like how all the house guest are always calling each other names and then sweet to there face. By far Chelesa is the one who needs to have a little therapy, her mouth is so awful. Thank you again and looking forward to getting the live feeds.

I have watched BB 1-9, only on cbs and this is the third time I have had the 24/7 feeds. This year we got a new PC and new Mac; this made my life much easier on the computer. I found "The Dish" through YouTube and just love it. I don't think I have missed a day at your site.

I have been disabled for years and your site have given me such pleasure and entertainment these last 3 months. I will be back for BB10 and it can't come soon enough.

I don't know how you do what do everyday for each of us. After reading all the comments I hope you know how much we appreciate your energy and dedication.

I don't write many comments but I do read it all. This is because I had a stroke several years ago and I had to learn how to speak and write again. So my spelling is not as great as it once was.

Dearest Carolyn,
You must know what high esteem we all hold you in. You have made us laugh and cry all season long as we have been entertained, informed, educated, challenged, and so very much more.

Cbs must appreciate such a talented individual for surely had you not been there to enhance our interest in the game they would have had many fewer viewers.

Your site is the most comprehensive, up to date, well organized, unbiased(you are fair to all commenters, and do not slant towards you're personal views),and friendly source for BB lovers. You are tolerant of the crude jerks who are often rude and obscene in their unfair criticism of you for providing us with such a wonderful forum.
You are so creative in providing activities, polls , contests to challenge us and fill those boring periods of endless trivia.
Before I found dish I was a the kind of Big Brother fan that caught the show when I could. I had checked out other sites which did nothing to increase my interest as a fan. Since I found Dish, I have not missed a show, purchased the feeds, watch BBAD, and come to dish several times a day for updates, fun, and companionship.
Dish always keeps me reminded of coming events on the show and feeds and helps give me the insight and dish to keep my interest piqued.
BB and all of us have a priceless gem in you and because of you and Dish we all can't wait for BB10.I hope both that coffee manufacturer and the shops that sell it know how much you do for them too.
You are truly the one who deserves the $500,000 in our opinion. BB would be so much less without you and your determined dedication.

Thank you for a great BB season of blogs! I've been watching BB since season 1 and love it. I do agree with most that this season was not the best ever :)

I'm afraid to get the live feeds because I'd never sleep and would have to drag through my own life each day. Therefore, I rely on you and the bloggers to keep me up to date on the REAL BB happenings!! Mostly, I'm a lurker who loves the entertainment you all provide.

You really do a super job as so many have already told you. (Heck, a girl can never have too many compliments, can she??) It is amazing how you seem to be 16 places at once: watching the feeds, transcribing, moderating the blog, conducting interviews, etc.

It's good you find a little time to bike and break for Cuban coffee. Please take more time for yourself--as much as we love you, we want you to be around for many more seasons!!!

One question I've been wondering: It says the dish chicks are Carolyn and Cara, but I haven't discovered who Cara is. Is Cara more behind the scenes? Posting under a different name? No longer with you? If I'm prying please just tell me to mind my own business and to use better manners next time :)

Love you and can't wait for BB10! Can't agree more that it's time for some of us over 40 to be represented. Thanks, again!

Carolyn ~ You rock! I found this website towards the end of last season and it hurt me to check it but I did anyways! (I used to be one of those people who would ONLY watch the TV show...did that since BB3) I decided to say "screw it" and follow the dish with this season this year, and I have to say how HAPPY that I did that!

I have met many pleasant people on this blog, especially you, Carolyn. I started this season as an "anon", but knew halfway that I must be a devoted Dish follower and get a Google account!

I am amazed at how much devotion you have towards this blog, but am so happy that you do. Your ability to stay up till the whee hours of the night and blog about what occurs (ESPECIALLY Endurance Comps) is awesome.

I don't know how else to end this comment except with the way I started it, "Carolyn ~ You rock!"

I forgot which post I asked on, so I'll ask again! Did you ever hear from the coffee company after I emailed them?

I think we all need to go to their website and ask them to do something for Carolyn. I figure I'm on their spam list by now. LOL

Thanks for everything you do, Carolyn. BB would never be the same without you. I found you last season. I stopped watching BB a few seasons ago because of work and school.

Last season I decided to get back to it. I started googling one day because everyone on the show kept mentioning the message boards and blogs, and BAM! I found you, and haven't left since.

You do an awesome job, and without you, I am certain I would have lost interest in BB a while ago.

The fiance calls me randomly throughout the day to get updates, and I generally just read him the latest post, and most of the comments. We have some favorite posters, and we love to see all of the different opinions. We have been swayed many a time by a good poster.

I've got you bookmarked for next season. I've told every BB watcher I know about your blog, and many of them now read you daily.

It will take me a few days to learn how to get away from the computer. Just today I found myself wondering what to do next, because there wasn't a lot going on for you to post about. Extra time on my hands, no BB to obsess over...I might go crazy. LOL

Once again, thank you so much, it's really awesome that you do this. I feel as if I know you in person. I know things will slow down on here over the next few says and weeks, but I will still check the site. Heck, I started reading BB8Dish over again.

Good luck with everything, and rest that back.

Let me belatedly add my kudos to all the others.

When I first started posting this year, I commented on having discovered you last season, but hadn't figured out how to post.

I also commented about how much I enjoyed finding a site where for the most part posters did not viciously attack other posters who voiced opinions which the "nasty posters" didn't agree with. My experience on Films.com was to be attached (among many others) by one particular poster who called us naive, ignorant, immature, unintelligent, etc., etc., etc. It had an extremely chilling effect on the enjoyment of back-and-forth bantering and posting.

I took the time to learn how to post on your site because I discovered nothing even close to what people were being exposed to on Films.com.

You have been a joy, a delight, and a laugh, all rolled into one.

I am so looking forward to Season 10. Although I do not give a hoot who wins this season (since James got evicted), I am not looking forward to the end of Season 9: there is going to be a huge hole in myheart and my daily routine when I can no longer come to this site and get a "fix."

I'll be here on Sunday, "know that." And I'll be checking periodically so I can join in as soon as 10 is up and running.

I also have to give a call out to beorn, GaYTor, Ry, Jane, and all the other consistent posters (even some of the anonymouses, but I don't know their names).

Speaking of anons, what do you think of taking that option away next season. Clicking on Name/URL and typing in a username is no big deal, and it helps those of us commenters who like to know who we are talking to not get confused with all the anons. Even a request for the Anons to type some type of consistent name or identifier at the end of their post would help. I know it's just a personal preference, but I don't think I'm the only one who enjoys "seeing" (reading) the "face" (name) of the person I'm talking to.

Anyway, KUDOS, KUDOS, KUDOS, KUDOS, on and on and on and on and on.....

Where do you get this cuban coffee? As a coffee lover, you are making me want to try it!

And LOL about it being called "Bustelo".....can't help think about Howie calling April (?) "BUSTO" when I hear that name.

Carolyn just had to check in and leave this comment. As well as being a BB addict I am a major News junkie, contantly flipping through different news channels on TV, radio and web sites (especially since its an election year, and the campaigning is so similar to BB).

LMAO!! Just heard Bill O'Reilly using the phrase THROW UNDER THE BUS. He was referring to O'bama refusing to throw Rev. Wright under the bus.
I really hoped we had heard the last of that phrase for a while. It amazes me how it has now become such a common phrase used by political commentators like O'reilly. Hope he doesn't start saying KNOW THAT, BOO FRIKKIN HOO, or BACK DOOR !!!

Please get some rest until Sunday.I will be checkin in on the guineas.

I didn't stick around today because these guys have become more nauseating by the minute since becoming the final 2! It's like they have forgotten completely about lying, cheating and manipulating everyone they lived with in the BB house. They are so angry at the jury member's questions and attitudes and are oblivious to why anyone would have a problem with them. There is an undertone of entitlement with both of them and it surprises me that they are still so supportive of each other, unless it's an act to just get through the next couple of days. Ryan seems so mean, with a real chip on his shoulder and Adam is so resentful of anyone who has a problem with him in the jury house. He has the softer heart of the two but I don't want either one of them to win, and I sure don't want to see them in a BB favorite's show.
Besides all that, (whew, glad I got that off my chest,) I just read everyone's comments and realized I missed you guys today and the live feed is just background music for the fun here. I am a "member" of lots of blogs but this one is the most diverse and the most supportive of each other. We disagree without being disagreeable...
Carolyn, thanks for making this a soft place to land no matter what is going on (or isn't,) in the BB house.

What in the world am i gonna do without you? BBblog has become part of my daily routine.

Actually, in a few weeks i'm heading to a zen monestary in the coastal mountains for the summer - i expect it'll be similar to BB house as it's a very isolated self-contained community - 14 miles of dirt road to the nearest town - and i'll be sans laptop (no electric light no motor car not a single luxury ...) If there's an internet cafe in town i'll log on and check out BB10; Unless of course i'm voted out ... then i'll give you the scoop on BB Zen house.

This is my first comment to the site. Thank you so much for all your hard work! I have watched BB from the beginning and this is the second year I have used your site...I also agree that it is the best! My husband has even watched the past two. Last year b/c of Evel and this year because Ryan could easily be his twin. Not just in looks but in mannerisms as well! Spooky!!
Thanks again!

I will say ditto to all of the above!

You have changed BB for me taking it from the two dimensional show I used to watch to a multi-dimensional show that the dish provides!

The updates, the laughter, the coffee philosophy, all the awesome posters, it's all great.

You have a fan and a friend for life!

Hi Carolyn and all bbdish fans! My name is Cindy, and I wanted to introduce myself. I am not sure how I found the dish, but I instantly became addicted to this site. I have been here daily for about 9 weeks. I will definetly be here for bb10, and I will make sure to post often. Big Brother is so much better when you add the dish chicks!

So, I am a coffee drinker too, and I am real curious about this coffee you keep talking about. Where can I get this coffee so I can try it? I am a Realtor in the coffee capital (Seattle, WA). We have all kinds of coffee here, every corner, every store, every where....

I've watched bb since season one, and every year I get a little more into it. Since season 7 I've been looking to your sites for updates, but this year I've really been on your site 24/7. Seriously I probably typed the URL like 10 times in three months, I just open my laptop and push refresh! And even the 10% chance I don't have this page already up.. it's programmed so that all I have to do is type a B and scroll down the urls for BB9DISH!!

Needless to say, BUENO JOB CAROLYN!!! :] I am officially addicted to the dish! :D And now that I'm graduating in May (cross my fingers) I'll have more time to devote to interacting with you and the other bblovers of the dish! (cross my toes)

Great Season! I'm already anticipating BB10!! :D

Hey Carolyn.. Thanks so much for your hard work and dedication to this blog site and for truly enhancing the audience with an insiders look. I have enjoyed so much all of your commentary on daily events and the opportunity to read the comments of the other fans to get a feel of what everyone is thinking.

I have only posted a few times this season but would have more. I just did not enjoy this season and the house guests at all. I am glad its over and even reading your latest comments on the F2 and the classless trashing they are doing of everyone in the jury house leads me to believe that I wouldn't give either of these guys the time of day let alone a vote to win money. They are very rude and very ungrateful for being final two. I could think of other people who are more deserving of that money and who would accept it humbly. There is no valid reason to be that toxic to the jury. None. I really don't care anymore who wins.. to me its tragic either way.

Enjoy your spring break Carolyn! I am soooo hoping that Alison will find a much more intelligent and classier cast than this one was. I really want to enjoy the show again!

Thanks again Carolyn! You are amazing! :)

Carolyn, hi, I have been a BB fan since the beginning. However, since I found your site 2 years ago, I enjoy BB even more. You keep me informed about everything that happens in the house and my wifr and I both are BB fans for life. I tell all my fellow BB lovers at work about your site. Anyway, thanks for what you do. We all appreciate you Carolyn!

Hi Carolyn,
I hadn't said a thank you till now because you are probably sick of hearing the same thing over and over...but I have to.

I found this site on google because I wanted to find the bb blog they were talking about on the show. Unfortunately, I didn't find you till half way through the season! I have been having so much fun on bb9dish, and this is also the first time I've been able to watch BBAD. I'm on the east coast, so I DVR it and watch it the next day. And this site is so addictive, I swear if it was possible I would have broken my "refresh" button!
Anyway, you are the best! I can't believe all the hard work you put in, and your dedication is amazing.

I can't wait till BB10 and having the dish from day one!

Thanks again Carolyn, and keep up the good work! Muaahh!

Way behind here, went away to Fire Island.

First, THANK YOU for all you do. I don't know what is in it for you but I appreciate it.

And, most importantly, let's tawk coffee. I googled Bustelo Supremo and found their website. A couple of questions. irst, SO CHEAP. Muy Caro. Por que? Also, hey say the espresso is a "light" roast. I am a French roast, rot the stomach strong coffee kinda gal. Will I be happy?

Also, is it organic?

And, lastly, what is up with the "brick" they are sold in? Does this mean they are pre-ground and just rich and moist? I use a French Press and cannot deal with the mess and hassle of a coffee grinder, so I have no idea what to do with this brick business. I didn't see an option for how to have the coffee ground pre-shipping.

I know you don't work for Bustelo, but you have been touting this stuff, and coffee is probably the second most important thing in my life, besides my dog. I put BB a distant third.

If you can help me out, ayudame, that would be BUENO!

Otherwise , it is back to the organic Frech Roast from my local NYC gourmand emporium.

Oh, and are we certain Adam threw the last HOH question with that Josh "myself" question?> The answe rwas obvious strictly from the word "myself" which was so Joshuah, let alone his self-absorption.

It is with great love that i say to you: Good Job!!! I have followed you for the last 3 seasons and have to say that you only get better as time goes on. From the exclusive interviews that seem to line up seamlessly with the current airing to you uncanny ability to call out what events are likely to happen, you inspire even those of us who do not speak often to RISE UP and say thanks..

hope i have not been to verbose for you:>

love ya

I can only answer your brick question but they're pre-ground so no, bean grinding mess and they're also sold in cans but I guess not on the net. Though, I'm in NYC too so you might see it in your supermarket.

I doubt it's organic though, seeing as companies that are love to market themselves as such.

It's not a snazzy French whatchamawhosit but it's got kick and it's tasty.

Carolyn, I've been putting off my thanks for the season long enough. I just don't want to do it because it means we are close to being done until July and I have enjoyed every minute here and I've spent countless ones keeping up with your blog and having way too much fun commenting.

I've enjoyed reading everyone's opinions even when they are WRONG :p~ (as in not agreeing with mine... JK) I'm not even going to try to name all the regulars that have made this a great season with what we had to work with, which wasn't much. They know who they are. The humour interjected by some have kept me laughing since February.

Your unbiased blog is definitely the best on the net and I defy anyone to say you ever have played favorites. You post what we say, within reason, and according to your rules. I don't know how you do it and keep your sanity as you spend 3 months with little sleep and keep going with the help of your daily doses of Cuban.

So as I am typing this, in 5 hours it will all be over except our endless comments until you cut us off and tell us to move on to BB10.

I am so glad I found this site, through word of mouth of a friend. I've been on others in the past and even moderated two, and was co-admin for another. I'm done with those so I'm looking forward to spending every season here because, I repeat... You are the BEST.

Until the summer, take care of those herniated disks, follow doctor' orders and get plenty of rest, and keep up those daily bike rides.

All the best,
John aka GaYToR <3

Ya ain't bad for a ** year old. I think I have that figured out because you posted one day way back what year you graduated from USC :p~.

Thank you, NYC coffee drinker person. Big Bummer. It doesn't sound strong, as I thought it would be ased on C's raves.

And you must drink organic. Do you know that pesticides are often used on coffee beans, and if you drink coffee regularly, you are drinking pesticides regularly? (shudder). Yes, I am one of *those* people,
