BIG BROTHER 8 Recap: The Power of Veto

July 18, 2007 by  


What a crazy bunch of loons we have living in the BIG BROTHER house this year. Between the egos and the crying and the attitude – oh wait, I love all that stuff…forget it. There was so much hullabaloo going on last night that I’m not even going to pretend to capture it all. But my head was a spinnin’.

Last night was all about the power of veto. Competing for the coveted prize was HOH Jen, nominated houseguests Danielle and Dick and randomly chosen competitors Joe, Mike and Amber. Usually the competition for the POV is the highlight of the night, but this week’s POV couldn’t hold a candle to the drama the preceded it.

First off, Amber needs to gets on some meds – stat! That girl is a basket case and I’m worried that child services is going to take her kid away from her. No way is Amber creating a stable environment for her daughter. She cries at the drop of a hat. I watch the live feeds and based on what I’m seeing there I had no idea that this side of Amber existed. Yeah, she’s a bit of a loon all the time, but this crying in the Diary Room – what is that?! Annoying, that’s what it is.

Tonight she was sobbing because she got picked to play in the veto competition. Oh the pressure of it all. What is she going to do if she wins? And what if she loses? Why God Why? Dustin (who should know better) plays into her antics and consoles her. Amber manages to pull herself together but then…oh but then – Jen walks into the room and tells Amber that is she wins the POV and gives it to Dick or Danielle then Jen is going to put Dustin on the chopping block. How ya doin’ blackmail?! This revelation of course sends Amber into yet another cryfest which seems to set off the whole house!

Jen goes into the bedroom and pretty much tells Joe the same thing. The difference here is that Joe doesn’t have any close friends in the house so he doesn’t really care about Jen’s threats. Danielle gets wind of Jen’s antics and she goes off on her (nice Danielle). Once Danielle is done bitching Jen out, it’s Dick turn to get in her face, and when he’s done Joe is back at her again. Mike steps in and makes a comment and Joe gets all pissy with him. Then Zach throws in his two cents and Jameka puts him in his place (have I mentioned that I LOVE her?). Anyway, it’s all one big bitchfest stemming from the fact that Jen is a slutty bitch whom I hate with a passion that overwhelms me.

On to the competition. The BB backyard has been transformed into a winter wonderland. The contests play a silly game and upon elimination they get to choose a wrapped present (one of which contains the POV). But the twist is that it’s a yankee swap, so the winner gets to choose from all the other presents . So the contestant that wins the whole game essentially wins the POV (if they want it). Joe is out first and he gets a slop pass, I can’t remember what Mike gets, Jen is WAY overly excited about getting a skin tight red unitard that she’s forced to wear for a week. Amber is out next and she has to be handcuffed to Kail for 24 hours (ugh), and finally Dick is eliminated and wins a plasma TV. So that means for the second week in a row Danielle wins POV.

So now Jen has to decide who she is going to put up in Danielle’s place on the chopping block. A lot of the houseguests are pushing Joe on her, but Jen has different plans. Being the self-obsessed, jealous nut job that she is, Jen decides that if she goes downstairs and finds Nick and Danielle together then Nick is going up for eviction. Jen struts down in her nasty ass unitard and walks into the bedroom and creepily stares at Nick and Danielle. It was like she was possessed. I was scared. She marches back up to HOH and declares she’s putting Nick up for eviction. Clearly Jen has NO strategy and has NEVER seen an episode of Big Brother before.

In other Big Brother news, Eric, Jameka and Brainless Jess are doing a fantastic job at flying under the radar and just floating along. They should enjoy it now while they can.

In the end, after all the drama, she opts to bypass Nick and puts Joe up for eviction. Joe doesn’t seem to phased and thinks he has the votes to stay over Dick. Who will have the support of their housemates and stay in the house and who will go home during the live show on Thursday? (Check out the GMMR Big Brother feed alerts for more news).

P.S. I really, really, really dislike Jen. I don’t condone violence but someone needs to slap that girl upside the head, and if that person needs to be me then so be it.

    so wait…you like Jen? 😉 Ha Ha love the updates, haven’t seen the last few episodes and, wow, sounds crazy. I’ve been distracted, finally cracked the seal on my Prison Break season 1 DVD… it’s delicious. And yes, I have never seen Prisoon Break before sooo ….. now who’s cuckoo? Have fun in Cali!

    Mike won a romantic dinner date in the backyard with the guest of his choice. I was actually really hoping that Dick would take that and use it to have dinner with Daniele (not in THAT way) so they could have time to talk and bond. Not that they don’t have time for that, I guess, since they are in a house with nothing to do.

    Also, did anyone else see Jen in that red unitard and hair scarf and have total flashbacks to Britney in Oops I Did It Again?

    Tell you what, Amber is SO Mary from Age of Love. We see that girl cry more than I thought anyone could cry. Do these people not know that people don’t want to see them cry in every episode?

    Thanks alot. You and Ducky not have me watching this show too! I am torn over who I want off. Both Joe & Dick are fabulous as far as there needs to be a fun evil person (as apposed to crazy evil Jen) and either one going after Jen next week will totally kill!

    HAHAHA. Oh, you managed to perfectly capture my feelings about Jen and what happened last night with that one sentence.

    I totally agree about Jen…so annoying. And seriously, I think Amber has a mental illness, it’s like she can’t control her emotions and everything is making her bawl. I don’t have the live feeds…does Amber have her emotions in check outside the diary room?

    Who to go? Joe I think. Dick though, he seems so genuine in the diary room talking about Danielle…but then he always screws things up when he is with her. Like his veto speech – what was that?! I’m confused as to whether he is actually being geniuine in the diary room, or playing to the viewers. Any thoughts on who the real Dick is?? ~Jenny

    You know, Mary from Age of Love cries a lot but I’ve said since week 1 that Amber is ALWAYS crying and when she’s not, her eyes are red because she was just crying. What is wrong with her?!

    I love to hate Jen. While I can’t stand the girl, I hope she stays around for awhile but I have no idea how she’ll make it another week. She’s such a bitch…and it’s awesome! LOL

    I actually could tolerate Joe this episode. He was making a lot of sense.

    I love Jameka too!

    How funny was it watching Eric try to get in Joe’s bed and then trying to convince Jen to nominate Jessica?! Poor Eric. I hope America voted for him to vote to evict Joe! Besides the fact that I don’t like him, I want Evil to be in the house longer so he can repair his relationship with Daniele.

    Does fricken Amber NOT STOP CRYING? It’s getting to be not funny anymore.

    Yeah. Joe is evil and stirs the pot but I’d rather have Evil Dick in the house.
