July 20, 2009

I’m not going to post on Big Brother after every episode, but I will try to get at least one post up each week. For the first time in years, I will not be reading updates on what happens in the house, which means that unlike previous seasons, I will NOT know the nominations, veto winners, drama, etc… that happens in the house before the episode airs. I will only be watching the episodes.

Now, some thoughts on the last 3 episodes since the premiere:

- Ronnie tries to come off as a master BB strategist, but his game play makes no sense. Why on earth would you align yourself with the Athletes to take out a Popular player like Braden, then go to Braden and the rest of the house and reveal the plan, only to go back to the Athletes and go with the initial plan? Makes no sense…you’ve added a ‘middle-man’ element that can only expose you as a conniving rat. There’s no good that can come from the way he played that…and what was with the silly finger-tapping after he won the HoH competition? Yes, I get that it was probably a way to signify to his wife by pointing at his ring finger, but could it look any more ridiculous? And did he really say that he was a ‘national champion in persuasive speaking?” When are those competitions held? Puh-lease.

- I thought Kevin’s flaming flamboyance would get really annoying really fast, but not yet. He’s actually growing on me.

- Chima is crazy. Bonkers. Nutso. Batshit Insane. Worse than Natalie from last year. That speech at the elimination was bizarre, and her arrogant attack on Casey when she held NO POWER was painful to watch. She will not last long. And I’m still quite sure she has a penis. No way that is a woman. No way.

- Casey reminds me of Mike Boogie, but not nearly as annoying.

- I’m more and more pleased with Natalie as my pick for my Swiss Chalet bet with Cheryl.
- Russell is a troll.

- Bully = Bowly…funny.

- Good to see Dan, last year’s winner, on one episode. Hilarious to see Jessie’s face when he came out.

- Laura with the giant boobs is rapidly proving herself to be the only one in the house with a brain, as she sniffed out the Ronnie situation right away. I’m concerned that she will be gone if Ronnie doesn’t follow through on his threat to backdoor Russell.

In the past, I’ve featured Jeff Probst’s blog on Survivor, and Phil Keoghan’s blog on The Amazing Race. I am shocked to announce that Julie Chen, the Chenbot herself, Little Miss “But First”, is now writing a blog for Entertainment Weekly’s website, and it’s quite good. Here’s a link for those of you interested in checking it out.

That’s all for now, hamster-watchers.
