DICK WINS BB8
I could not be happier that Dick won tonight! He played a great game (even though he screwed up a few times) and he totally deserved it.
During the final episode, the jury was forced to confront the fact that Dick and Daniele had made it to the final two. There was a lot of bitterness and snippy commenting, but eventually they had to make a decision.
America voted for Dick, which meant Eric had to convince the other evicted house guests to vote for Dick to win. That’s not an easy task considering that he personally attacked every single one of them. Still, Eric urged everyone to focus on strategic moves and persuasion. He said that, even though Daniele dominated in competitions (particularly the veto comp with her 5 wins) Dick was able to play a mental game that defeated every single person in his path. Even Amber, who hates Dick, had to say that she thought Dick was the better competitor because he was playing the game for two people, himself and his daughter.
Surprisingly, almost everyone in the house voted for Dick to win, saying that they focused on who played the fame to the fullest. In the end, only Jameka and Jen voted for Daniele to win.
The rest of the evicted house guests were also there on finale night and we got to hear a bit from them. Nick looked hot (as always!) Joe was amusing and kinda made me feel like he got voted out too soon. If I had to pick between him and Dustin, I would have much rather kept Joe in the house because, though he was also arrogant at times, at least he was funny.
Janelle was also in attendance tonight and holding a big sign that said “We trust the Donatos”. She seemed very happy that they were in the final two and very happy that Dick won.
I just want to say a big thank you to anyone who read this blog over the season and a special thank you to Dean for posting so many great comments! Also a big thank you to Keith at BB Chatter for putting a link to this blog on his amazing BB site. I can’t wait to chat with everyone on the boards there next year for BB9. Thanks also to Morty’s TV for their great updates and show recaps. Another thank you to Dingo’s Hamster Watch and to Joker’s Updates for linking to me. You guys are awesome! I love BB because I love the community of viewers who become BB fanatics over the summer.
Thanks again to everyone who read my crazy rants, whether you agreed with me or not!
See you all next year for BB9!

Just a reminder that the BB8 FINALE is on TONIGHT!
Who will win, Dick or Daniele?
Obviously, I vote Dick. He’s played this game from the very beginning and he’s maintained a Dr. Will style in every move he’s made. Honestly, I doubt Dick will win and I think that little brat Daniele will end up going home with the prize (and I don’t mean Nick).
Just a few hours to go before the live finale on CBS.
The most recent results in the Love ‘Em or Leave ‘Em poll on CBS.com show that Dick is America’s favorite player. Hopefully, that means that everyone also picked for the final America’s Player vote. I don’t know if that will help him win the game, but it’d be nice when they reveal the AP twist and everyone realizes that America likes Dick the most. No one else even comes close.
It’s no real surprise that America likes Dick more than Daniele. In the last few episodes, she had been such a whiny bitch to her dad. She keeps telling him to shut up, keeps acting like she’s super sick of him, and says nothing when he tells her he loves her. Clearly, that brat has only used her dad to get to the final two. I’m hoping that her little scheme doesn’t work and she ends up losing the game.
In related news, Dick is also the front runner in the Grand Prize poll on CBS.com. This means that most voters think he will win over Daniele.
The live finale is tomorrow night on CBS. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Dick will win the show. The Donatos are on par with Chill Town as far as the greatest alliances in BB history.
Despite staying out there for almost 8 hours, Dick lost the first part of the HOH competition, leaving me to believe that time might be up for one of the Donatos. He was very upset and looked like he might drop dead after the whole thing. I felt really bad for him because he’s older than everyone else, but he still put up a hell of a fight in that competition. He deserved to win, he just didn’t have the physical ability to do it…. Plus, Zach’s a robot so he probably could have stayed up there until someone had to come in and change his battery.
In the second HOH competition, Dick smoked Daniele in an underwater puzzle solving contest. He took less than half as much time to complete the puzzle, making him a clear winner.
Next he had to face off against Zach in the final, and most important, competition of the season. In the final HOH competition, Dick and Zach were quizzed about what the sequestered jury members said during their time in the jury house. Dick was ahead after the first question, which asked what Amber’s most annoying moment was. Amber answered that seeing Jen cry over her picture was the most annoying moment. Dick answered correctly, putting him in a lead he held on to for the rest of the game.
In the end, he won the final HOH and evicted Zach live on the show tonight.
This leaves Dick and Daniele in the final two! Their alliance is on par with Chill Town because it landed both of its members in the finals. I’m still hoping Dick wins, but I’m so happy that the Donatos pulled it out tonight that I don’t even care which one wins.
I can’t even imagine the jury’s face when they find out that BOTH of the Donatos are the finalists and they HAVE TO vote for one of them to win!!!
In a shocking move, Daniele used the veto to save HER DAD! Of course, she did it when it totally didn’t matter and she wasn’t putting herself out there in any way, but it’s something, right?
Dick cast the only eviction vote and evicted Jameka. Jameka went out with major class, which gave her points in my book. She was thankful for the experience and she seemed to see through Zach’s “you restored my faith in God” comment. (Which was such BS by the way!)
We finally got to see the sequester house and Jen is there, despite the fact that she loudly proclaimed that she wouldn’t go. Dustin thinks he’s the leader of the losers, and I guess he kinda is. He has got to be one of the most arrogant people to play this game since Jase or Mike Boogie. He was sobbing when Amber arrived… which was funny. Everyone kept waiting for one of the Donatos to walk through the door, but kept seeing people from their own alliance. Jessica seemed surprised, but kinda happy, to see Eric enter the house.
The jury watched a quick video of Eric’s eviction and that brought us to up speed with the live show Tuesday.
After Jameka’s eviction, the remaining three headed into the backyard for the HOH competition. They had to stand on a pedestal, holding on to their key while a pole went past them and they had to jump over it. By the time BBAD was on, Daniele was off the pedestal and sobbing in the shower. Dick and Zach were still on by the time BBAD ended.
Today, I found out that Zach outlasted Dick in this endurance competition and won the first part of the most important HOH competition of the season. (LAME!) Part two and three are yet to be played, but hopefully a Donato can beat Zach in the last round and win the final HOH.
Daniele does not deserve to win this game. Even though she’s this year’s Veto queen with 5 wins (tying Janelle for most in a single season), she has relied on other people to do her dirty work and basically floated through the season. That being said, I certainly don’t want Zach to win. That creepy nerd is only a step up from Eric in the socially awkward scale, not to mention that his game play was lame. He was SO transparent in his ass kissing and siding with whoever was in power. I don’t see how anyone in the jury house could respect him enough to give him the money, even if he was against Dick in the end.
Obviously, I hope Dick wins this game. I think he’s really kicked ass in the house so far, playing a mental game and teaming up with Daniele to dominate in competitions. The Donatos are like Chill Town in their team strategy and that kind of play deserves the prize.
I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the Donatos in the final two!
Daniele won the veto, so it looks like Jameka will be voted out. Apparently, the eviction will be live on Tuesday.
Well, it seems that one of the Donatos might end up leaving this week. It was a good run, but the alliance was very one-sided. Dick did all the work, Dani did all the bitching and moaning. Please, oh please let Dick stay and Daniele go this week!
I have no idea what went down, and I guess we won’t know for sure until Sunday, but Dick and Daniele are now on the block! I don’t know if the veto was used or if my original information about Zach’s nominations was incorrect. What the hell is going on?! I haven’t been watching the feeds or BBAD. I’m so out of the loop!
Right now though, it looks like the Donatos are on the block this week. LAME!
I really wanted Dick to win. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that people will be so sick of Dani’s pouting and whining that they’ll send her packing.
More to come when I find more info online somewhere. If you’re looking for breaking BB news, head over to BB Chatter. It’s a great community of BB fans who watch the feeds 24/7 and post screencaps and updates.
Final four baby! The last few weeks have been pretty boring and I couldn’t be happier that things are starting to wrap up.
Zach won HOH again. I assume you’re getting sick of seeing his face up on this blog, so I decided I’d pick a totally random picture of Nick to give your eyes a break for a while.
Jameka and Daniele are on the block and the Power of Veto is yet to be played.
Honestly, I kinda hope Daniele goes home this week. She is getting SO annoying. I can’t remember what I liked about her in the first place…. come to think of it, I never did like her in the first place. I just liked Nick and she was cool by association. She’s a whiny little brat and, if it weren’t for the men in her life carrying her along, she would never have made it this far in the game.
I know I’m going to be hated for saying this, but I hope Dick wins BB8. He’s played the shit out of this game. He’s been a huge threat for weeks now, yet no one has had the balls to get rid of him. That’s Evil Doctor style play right there. Just like with Will, everyone constantly says how they can’t wait to get rid of him when they get HOH, yet every single time, he sticks around to kick their ass in another round. Well done Mr. Donato, well done.
Regardless, it’s kind of nice to know that this whole charade will be over soon. BB is one of my favorite shows, but like a summer fling, by the time fall rolls around, I’m ready for a break.
I’m anxious to see what the producers cook up for the final competitions and who will come out on top. It should be cool to hear everyone’s comments (and look at Nick’s sexy smile) on finale night too.
Jessica was evicted 2-1.
Dick won HOH and nominated Eric and Jameka.
Zach won the Veto and didn’t use it.
Eric was evicted 2-0. Bye bye America’s Douchebag!
I just got back from vacation, so I’ll make this short…
Zach is HOH
Zach nominated Jessica and Jameka for eviction
Daniele won the Power of Veto
Daniele did not use the PoV, so Jessica and Jameka are still on the block
Dick won the America’s Player vote, so Eric has been taking his cigarettes and mocking him.
Apparently, there’s been a bit on controversy surrounding the sequester house. It seems that the hurricane delayed the evicted HG’s entry to the house and that there were some undisclosed problems with Jen that lead the producers to decide against broadcasting the sequester house. Also, it seems that a reported leaked the America’s Player twist to Dustin during an interview and apparently Jen also found out about the big secret, so the two of them are being housed in solitary sequester. This is just what I heard on BB Chatter. More information can be found over here.
