It is getting to the point where she is so dumb it is unbelievable what comes out of her mouth - its fishy.

Kudo's to Dick for slamming her just before nominations!

Does America's choice get paid even though whats-her-face wasn't put on the block?

That was actually a stupid move on the part of "Evil Dick". He just sent himself packing. He should have kept his mouth shut. It was obvious that Jen would take this personally, but its not a good idea to mouth off to the current HOH. Dumb, dumb, dumb. See ya later Dick. I also dont think Jen is as much of a bimboo as the editing is making her out to be. You really have to watch the live feeds unedited. I'll agree she is incredibly self centred and shallow, probably narcissistic too.

I agree, he expected to be nominated anyway. The fact that Jen nominated a father/daugther combination who haven't spoken in a few years is pretty heartless IMHO.

Later in the game is fine but doesn't this woman have any compassion?

Next episode is tonight @ 9:00pm on CBS. The PoV competition will be held and the winner's decision will be revealed.

Results from tonight's show:
- Daniele won the PoV
- Daniele used the PoV to save herself
- Jen put Joe up in place of Daniele

Some thoughts. Nick seems to be falling for Daniele. Is it for real or are they playing each other? Amber cries way too much. I mean WAY TOO MUCH. Stand up for crying out loud. Heh. Jen is stirring the pot and creating huge drama but still ended up being manipulated by the group into putting Joe up. I'm not convinced her behaviour is an act. When she saw Nick and Daniele all close she immediately announced she was putting Nick up on the block. She is totally reckless, but it's fun to watch.

Looks like Joe is heading home. The house seems to be on EvilDick's side... for now. Let the campaigning begin.

Live eviction is on Thursday's show @ 8:00pm EST on CBS.

Cheers.

Maybe she's a fembot? Heh heh. On the plus side, EvilDick won a Plasma TV. I hope it's 1080p! ;)

You know ... I find the show far less interesting without John Powell's blog. It's always been kind of a useless show, but Powell made it interesting. Not sure why Canoe isn't having him blog it this year ... it's too bad.

That said, the only interesting dynamic is Evil Dick trying to get a handle on his relationship with his daughter. If he goes ... I'll probably tune out.

It very much is him. I guess that explains it, he must be something else for Global as well ... he was pretty high up the Canoe food chain.

John Powell's summaries are great. Thanks for the link. It's hard to keep up with all the details that are not covered by the show. We miss so much and who the hell has time to watch the live feeds, let alone read all the live feed updates. I see he's of the opinion that Jen's behaviour is all an act. He likens her to Will - what you see is what you get. I'm not sure I'd go that far just yet, but when she does have 1-on-1 conversations, she does tend to drop the dumb act.

Classic converstation between Joe and Jen:
Joe enters the HoH room to speak to Jen.
Joe: Do you have any idea who you are putting up?
Jen: Yes, I am putting you up.
Joe: What is the reason?
Jen: There is no reason. You are going up.
Heh heh. Too funny.

Thanks for the new John Powell link. I was wondering what happened to him. I suppose his Surivor picks and boots will also end up there.

I was wondering what happened to the Canoe dude myself...

I think the show is getting very interestings now but since I'm not watching the after hours I have no idea what the "main" alliance dudes are up to - Mike has had next to no airtime and the insane clown smile guy is definitely up to something - he's pulling stoopid Jen's strings that is for sure...

I didn't like Joe at the start but he is growing on me - he calls everyone out everytime!

I don't want Dick to go either but whatchagonnado?

Results from tonight:

- Joe was evicted by a vote of 9-1
- Dick is the new HoH

Oh boy - this should be interesting. I predict Kail and Jen will be up for nominations.

We shall see...

I'm a Jen convert. Hated her T-shirts and the crying over her photos. But other than those 2 things she's probably the 2nd most normal person (after 'America's Ringer')

I like her effervescent attitude and the way she deflects vicious attacks from dbags like Evil Dick.

I especially like her refreshing candor and the fact she's not so overly tactical and manipulative as the other players.

Even if you're not into the barbie doll body type, you have to appreciate how well she wore the unitard and how creative she was with it.

There's also a conspiracy theory running around the 'net (and in the house) that the "tea cup" question was rigged to allow for two possible answers (count the opening or don't count the opening in the calculation) in order to let CBS control who became HoH at the very end.
Though the producers are highly manipulative, they aren't pulling tiny meaningless gimmick tricks like this.

If they ever did want to rig a season, they'd do it by planting a hand-picked contestant in a house flush with flakes and losers. Then they'll create a twist where they can pretty much control that player's every move. Dunno if and when that will happen though.

I wouldn't be surprised.
I would be... have you seen these live HOH competitions? They can barely pull them off without gaming the result. I don't think Julie Chen is well suited for such a trick either.

Heartless? Was it heartless to split up one pair last week and a different pair this week?

The houseguests may be vain but not stupid. They are wasting no time splitting up the pairs.

This is a contest, not a mediation. The tension between those two was probably awful and splitting them up probably benefits everyone including themselves.

Later in the game is fine but doesn't this woman have any compassion?
What is the specific point in the game when a contestant should switch from trying to be compassionate to actually playing the game?
