  1. Thursday LIVE Show 8/6

    Just re-watched last year's HoH competition "Rude Awakening", which had to do with the recorded messages. Michele (BB10) won that one "for Jessie". http://www.veoh.com/browse/videos/category...5544835CjnHSzZB
  2. Spreadsheet Summary for BB11

    I have a name! I got it from the B-side Blog. (Of course, it's not an official name, or anything, just funny.) The name is... Rave-ing Lunatics. LOL From the CBS re-cap page, the official title might be either "Rave, Big Brother Style" or "Ready, set, glow!".
  3. Spreadsheet Summary for BB11

    Georgie, the prediction challenge just wouldn't be the same without your kick-ass spreadsheet! (On second thought, the words "ass" and "spread" should probably have not been used in such close proximity to each other!) Forgive me, Georgie!!! It's awesome to see you back for another year!
  4. Mystery Houseguest

    Brian had a lot of promise, from what little we saw. But promise isn't everything. As much as it hurts me to say it, he may have been another Kaysar - where he looks like he has a total grasp of the game and has many different strategies and is not bad at reading people, but he ends up making moves that are wrong or just too early, and it just doesn't play out his way. (I love you, Kaysar! ) Hopefully, if it really is Brian in there, the other houseguests won't vote him out in the first few weeks just because he was already on last year. But I think that is a very real possibility if he has no special immunity and is just another regular player.
  5. Mystery Houseguest

    (Jersey, I'm sure you meant Brian, not Steven.) I would LOVE to have Jen back! Too bad she did all those interviews with the houseguests this year. That means for sure she is ineligible. Craig would recognize Jessie way more than Brian. Brian was out so fast that I'm not sure he ever made it onto Craig Ferguson's show! And Craig and Jessie had a great rivalry over the whole HoH/Ho (ho-ho-ho) thing. Sounds to me (from the Corneroffice leaks) like the Cliques will play as a team for HoH, without knowing the identities of the possible returning houseguests. Then, after one team wins, only that team's associated houseguest returns, and is automatically HoH for Week 1. (But I could be wrong!) And the "O" Clique is "Offbeat", not "Outcast". (It's funny, because I keep thinking it's "Oddball" myself, before I remember! LOL) AND, if you count Cowboy as BB7 (because episode 1 of BB7 was the last time we saw him), that would mean one houseguest from each of the last 4 seasons.
  6. Diane bb 11 cast interviews

    Awesome! Thanks, UVP. I've been eagerly waiting for those!
  7. Help?!?! Big Brother

    CTRL-F5 or just F5 works for me.
  8. BB 11 excitement level

    My excitement level went from 4 right up to 6 when I found out that CBS announced the official premiere date! Thanks for the compliment! But although I did kick ass the time before last, you and I were pretty neck and neck in the BB10 Weekly Challenge, Lala. (905 before adjustment - good enough to tie for 7th. I got more taken off in the adjustment, though, so you ended up tied for 6th and I ended up tied for 11th.)
  9. BB 11 excitement level

    I voted a 4. Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely pretty excited already! I just know that if a 10 is how I feel in the last hour before the first show airs, than by comparison I'm only at 4 now. Even though most of my friends think I'm at 10 now because I bring it up a few times each and every day! Awww. It's nice to be missed, everybody! And yeah, I'm fine. Had a few weeks off from everything is all. Challenge doesn't usually start until June anyway. (Last year was MID-June, because of late premiere date!) Just so you know, there will definitely be a Prediction Challenge this year, and I'm looking forward to it. But because I'm going away on vacation in late August / early September, I thought it best to give someone else a chance running it this year. Morty will be giving his blessing on some plans in the works, and then we're a go! It shouldn't be too long. I'm actually looking forward to my score counting again, which might give me the edge to whip all your butts! It's great to be back! Buxom
  10. Episode 3.21: Into Asylum

    Why, a new and improved Peter Petrelli, of course! Or, Hiro can always just run up and stab him through the heart with a sword. (Hey, it's really CHEAP, but somehow it worked last time.)
  11. Episode 3.20: Cold Snap

    Yup, the title part was really good. I was thinking that "Rebel" would turn out to be Hana Gitelman (you remember "Wireless" from season 1, right?), but she was only in a couple of episodes. (By the way, she stars on the new show "Castle" with Nathan Fillion now.) Micah was much more memorable, although I barely recognized him when he showed up because of how much the actor has grown and changed. The way I count Ali Larter's characters, that was number three. Although Jessica was a split personality of Niki, I think she used to exist and that they were raised as twins. I could be wrong, that's just how I remember it being explained when Tracy showed up. I hope she's gone for good because they never gave her anything exciting to do, and I don't see how anyone could develop much pathos for her. I missed the very beginning last night, and I didn't see Sylar in any of the rest of the episode (did I blink?), so I will have to watch the part I missed to see what you're talking about there, Kayo. Matt and Daphne was kind of weird. Why did they kill her off, then bring her back, only to get rid of her again? It adds nothing. They have totally ruined Matt Parkman's character, in my opinion. At least he seems to be getting more powerful. Powerful enough even to stop Sylar by himself, unless Sylar can counteract that mind control somehow. Peter rescuing Angela was ok, but it seemed to me that he was foolish to wait until the doors opened before taking off, when it looked like he had tons of time to get away before that. And Hiro is disappointing me more and more. His childlike wonder and enthusiasm at the beginning is what made him so lovable to me. Then they reverted him to a childlike state to get rid of his powers, and brought him back to himself only without the powers, now they're giving him limited powers (but I'm not sure how that could be explained scientifically since stopping time and travelling through it seem too related to me), only now instead of being childlike and innocent, he's just childish and unintelligent. How is he supposed to turn into that Badass-Hiro from that extinct alternate future timeline now? In my opinion, the writing is Ok, it's just that they're not going to a solid enough place for me. Even that might not be enough. I don't like stuff like "The Lord of the Rings", where there's this whole long journey and lots of trials along the way for nothing. HEROES worked much better as the serial-killer-murder-mystery it was in the first season. Now they seem to just be running in circles. But I'm still watching!
  12. jerry bb10 news

    I remember reading a post by someone at the CBS boards back during the BB-10 season who was asking CBS to PLEASE have Jerry's throat checked out for cancer. They talked about their father, uncle, relative or friend sounding like Jerry was sounding and it later turned out he had throat cancer. I can't find that post over there now because their Search function really doesn't work over there and there are just WAY too many pages of topics to go through. The closest I could find was a post at Joker's (by "milliesmom") back on September 11 when the show was ending which said:
  13. Lost Season Five- General Discussion

    I just had a nosebleed this morning. Now I'm worried that I'm going to start travelling uncontrollably through time. On second thought, it was probably just from the dry air in the office.
  14. Finale Date 9/16 Show

    Using the show dates from TV guide's episode list (<--- click for link), we can kind of work our way backwards, I guess. Anything in parentheses below is my own note or comment. Episodes - Big Brother 10 (28 total Episodes) TU 9/16/2008 (Final episode) Episode Detail: The winner is announced, after the finalists are questioned by the jury members. *SU 9/13/2008 Newly added to TV Guide schedule - most likely a "flashback" episode. TH 9/11/2008 (Part 2 of Final HoH shown from tape. Part 3 of Final HoH shown LIVE. Going from 3 down to Final 2.) TU 9/9/2008 (Final Veto ceremony - LIVE, forcing eviction which takes us from 4 down to 3. Part 1 of Final HoH begins.) SU 9/7/2008 ("Final 4" Nominations shown) TH 9/4/2008 (Eviction takes us from 5 down to 4 houseguests.) TU 9/2/2008 (PoV shown) SU 8/31/2008 ("Final 5" Nominations shown) TH 8/28/2008 (DOUBLE eviction! Starts with eviction, then full weekly cycle in one hour, ending with another eviction.

  15. Heroes General Discussion

    I'm still a fan. Last season was pretty good. (I enjoyed it, at least.) It's just that the writer's strike put a halt to the season before they could work up to what they were going for. I have faith in the writers, and am really looking forward to this season. It's got to be hard to top that first season, but I know they can do it.
  16. Bb10 Picture Thread

    At the end of today's HouseCalls (with Gretchen Massey and Dick Donato), they were showing Dan clipping his nose hairs with a small pair of scissors! I was a little late on the screen capture button (after watching - and laughing - for a good 15 seconds), so I missed it.
  17. Part 3 - Hoh Competition

    For a look at Part 3 of BB9's Final HoH, have a look at this 7-minute clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvUnIWp0SQ0
  18. Luxury Competition

    It's got to be up to at least $200,000 by now, I think!
  19. Dan - Week 10

    My opinion differs from the above. There is more than one way to become a great player. In my opinion, Janelle is also a great player. I admire her a lot. (Hence my username!) She was a great player because she won a lot of competitions, and many of those were "must win" ones. Dan is doing some of that too. He started out as a Dr. Will type player to me - throwing competitions on purpose, making himself look weak, but forming relationships and keeping the houseguests entertained. Then he switched it up when he had to, and became a Janelle type player, winning competitions when he had to. He's a good mix of the two stategies, and has played an interesting game that was entertaining for the fans to watch.
  20. Big Brother Ebay Auctions

    (Although this should probably be in the Dan thread), the Orchard Lake St. Mary's Eaglets are 1 - 1. Their website: http://www.olsmathletics.com/football/football_body.htm (Oh, and Dan is listed on this season's Coaching Staff as "Asst. Coach/Running Back & Outside Linebackers ".) They lost their first game, a rematch of the most exciting game of last season. Then they demolished their opponents in their following game. They play again on Saturday.

  21. Finale Date 9/16 Show

    Pretty much. The last 7 days usually see 2 people evicted and the jury deciding who wins between the Final 2. See for yourself, in these cut-and-paste graphics from the CBS websites from some previous Big Brothers.
  22. Thursday Night Football

    I don't know if anyone posted about this yet (and I don't have time to check), but it's about Dan's team playing tonight. Here's some info about it: http://www.mlive.com/grpress/sports/index....marys_offe.html
  23. Get Involved, America!

    For some of those questions, I really wish there had been a "none of the above" option.
  24. Double Eviction

    Thanks for the correction, OmegaBetaZeta. I was a little rushed because I had a train to catch, and didn't do my research properly. Well, after OBZ's correction, it looks like you're right about that. Besides, I'm sure Jem would remember, because days when feeds are blocked are like the only day she gets off during a Big Brother season!
  25. Double Eviction

    Besically, they ARE the same. But to get technical, a double eviction week means that 2 cycles are played in one week's time. That could mean one cycle is sped up and takes place in less than an hour, or that it takes 2 days. Background info -------------------- The first time Big Brother did this was back in Week 10 in season 5, where they sped things up and Marvin went home in Week 10. But the HoH (Drew) had 3 hours to do nominations, and the whole process took a day. I think Julie Chen referred to that as "BB on speed". (I can't be sure if I've heard the term "fast forward" used for Big Brother. I think I have, but I watch The Amazing Race a lot, and they use that term a lot, so I get confused.) Then, in Week 7 of BB6, Janelle won HoH after Kaysar was evicted (the second time), and nominated Jennifer and Maggie on the spot. Julie Chen tells Janelle that eviction will be decided in a live vote on Saturday (BB6 was shown on Saturdays, not Sundays), but in reality the whole process took about 24 hours, and what was shown on Saturdays show was taped "live to tape" on Friday. (Feeds were blocked for the 24 hours.) BB7 (All-Stars) had Chicken George in the hot seat when he won HoH in Week 7. That ended with Chilltown betraying him and evicting Howie, his Jedi master. That was only shown on Sunday's show, even though it happened on Friday. (I think feeds were blocked.) Correction from OmegaBetaZeta: BB Fast Forward (2 live evictions in one episode) was introduced in Big Brother: All Stars. After Danielle was evicted, Janelle won HOH and immediately nominated Erika and Chicken George. Erika then won the Live POV, and Janelle replaced her with Mike Boogie. Erika and Will voted to evict Chicken George, so he was the second one sent packing that night, and was greeted by KFC's Colonel Sanders with a bucket full of Kentucky fried chicken. (Thanks OBZ!) BB8 had a fast forward double eviction when both Jessica and Eric were evicted after Zach's Week 9 HoH reign ended with Dick winning the next HoH and putting up Eric and Jameka. Zach won the controversial Veto (because a blue ball accidentally bouncing into Jameka's tube disqualified her from that competition) and did not use it, resulting in Eric's eviction. There was no double eviction week in BB9, although for the first weeks, 2 houseguests were evicted at a time, since they were playing as couples.
