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!

A lot of shit went down tonight… and of course it had to happen when I wasn’t watching! There were a ton of fights and Dick poured a drink on Jen’s head. Danielle yelled at her dad and Amber cried (big surprise). Anyway, the only thing that I can really show is that Nick gave himself a Mohawk. Here’s some pictures.
I wish Nick would stay because I think this is a sign that he’s ready to fight now. That could be a good thing if he’s still around because it might mean he’ll be brutal with his strategy and that would really make this show interesting again.
On the other hand… Nick shaving his head might mean that he’s gone totally crazy. After all, we have seen this type of thing before.
Let’s just hope that, if he is evicted, he won’t go get some weird tattoos and then beat the shit out of a car with an umbrella.
Dustin nominated Jen and Kail for eviction (sweet!!)
The POV competition is tomorrow. Jameka, Jessica and Danielle are playing.
As a result of the food competition, Nick, Dick, Kail, Jen and Zach are on slop.
There has been a lot of tension between Dick and Amber.
Dustin said Kail was not his target and that he wanted Jen or Nick (say it ain’t so) evicted first.
I’m going to be so pissed if Nick is evicted this week! He’s so hot and I think he’s totally funny too. If he goes, who will I have left? There will be no hot guys to look at and, as far as I’m concerned, that’s 40% of the reason to watch this show!
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s Jen who gets the chop instead.
Sorry to keep this so short, but I’m trying to burn a DVD and watch BBAD on Showtime as I write.
Kaysar’s been on House Calls a couple times this season, but this time I wasn’t at work, so I actually got a chance to watch most of it. He said if he was in the house, he would form an alliance with Nick (which might be the hottest alliance in BB history) and he wouldn’t target the floaters like he did in BB6. He said a lot of other stuff, but I think I was too busy ogling him like a horny school girl to really pay attention.
Here’s a screencap from the show. You can view full episodes of House Calls on the CBS Big Brother site… and you can click this link to see his appearance on July 12th.
I loved seeing him on, but I’m really missing his facial hair. It makes him look even hotter.
I was checking Joker’s Updates a few minutes ago and I noticed they have a link to Nick’s MySpace page. I’m assuming they have links to most of the HGs pages, but right now I’m on a Nick thing and I only care about his.
On it, you can find hot pictures like this one and more info about Nick. This is really just an excuse for me to put another picture of Nick with no shirt on up on this blog.
And here’s what Nick had to say in his About Me section:
Just got back from pro football overseas… I’m originally from Minnesota… Currently I am in Shepparton, Australia teaching:D Feel free to ask anything What have I done w/ my life… hmmm I was on MTV back in the day (3-4 years ago), I used to fitness model (in Cali) I managed an Abercrombie and Fitch around the time I fitness modeled… Now I am currently teaching P.E./Outdoor Ed. in Australia until May…then who knows what I’ll be doing… I’m sure it’ll be an adventure though Woo HOO Like Tim Robbins say, “Get Busy Living or Get Busy Dying” Sports… Pop And Locking Like The Guy In The Blue Tux From Footloose Trying to Be As Cool Or Cooler as Ferris Bueller Or Marty McFly Every man dies, not every man really lives…If You Fall From A Skyscraper Go Really Limp Like A Dummy, Someone May Try and Catch You Because “HEY, Free Dummy!”…. Probably The Saddest Thing You’ll Ever See Is A Mosquito Sucking A Mummy, Forget It Little Friend…Veritas Aequitas About Me: ALL AMERICAN D2 FOOTBALL PLAYER …I think A.C. Slater quite possibly could be the dreamiest guy ever (sigh)… I Like Parties But I Don’t Like Pinatas because the Pinata Promotes Violence to Flamboyant Animals… I Find It Ironic How Cologne Rhymes With Alone… Sorta Only Means Something After Certain Sentences, Like I Love You and You’re Going To Live…
Last night I realized that I totally have a crush on Nick. Like Hardy and Kaysar before him, he is this year’s uber hottie. Here are a few reasons why I’m hoping Nick wins, or at least makes it to sequester.
Reason 1: He’s got a killer body.
As we all saw during his intro video, Nick’s happy to give America two tickets to the gun show. While he was once listed as a pro football player and now merely as “former football player”, we can tell just by looking at him that he is clearly a dude who has spent some time in a weight room. His hot bod totally reminds me of Hardy from BB2, who just so happened to be one of my favorite players from that season. Maybe it’s the Hardy association that makes me like Nick, but whatever the cause, I’m definitely a fan of Nick’s killer bod.
Reason 2: He’s funny.
Nick’s got a dry sense of humor that makes it hard to tell if he’s joking or being totally serious. He makes wise cracks with a completely straight face and people like Jen can find that difficult to interpret. I remember thinking he was really funny during a conversation he had with Danielle in the hammock during the first week. Zach was there and saying he thought Danielle was the best looking girl in the house, while Nick joked about her being fat and flirtatiously teased her. He’s made a bunch of really funny statements since then, but those crucial early moments made me take notice of his sense of humor.
Reason 3: Everybody loves Nick.
Since the first week in, it seems like practically everyone in the house has developed a crush on him. He flirted with Danielle, but Joe also had a crush on him right away. The fact that almost all the girls in the house think he’s a babe, and a lot of the guys do too is further proof that Nick’s got the goods. Amber has claimed to have a brother-sister relationship with him, despite her flirtatious body language and Jen wants him so bad she started making up lies about him kissing her. He doesn’t just drive the girls and the gay boys crazy, even supposedly straight boys like Eric seem to have a strong attraction to him.
Reason 4: He really cares about Danielle.
Not only does Nick have a crush on this year’s buxom blonde bombshell, but he seems to really like her as a friend too. Nick’s been adamant about trying to mend her relationship with Dick and he’s very attentive to her when she seems to be feeling down. Last night, she was hanging out in the storage room feeling bummed out when he came in to cheer her up. It’s so sweet. Their relationship isn’t like a lot of other BB shomances because it seems like there’s real emotion at the heart of it. He’s even openly professed his love for her a few times.
Reason 5: He has that cool tattoo.
I’m not quite sure what it says, but I like it. I’m just happy he doesn’t have the typical fratboy, wanna be gangsta tattoo of some phrase in Olde English writing. His tattoo seems pretty detailed and it looks like real body art as opposed to just some cursive letters on his arm. In the long history of really cut guys with tattoos in Big Brother, I would have to say his is the best. A lot can be said for a cool tattoo.
Reason 6: He looks good in anything.
Lately it seems like every time I see Nick, he’s rocking some different look. Almost every season, the hot dudes in the house get bored and start messing around with their look in search of something fun to do. Usually, the results are disastrous. In Nick’s case, it seems like everything he puts on looks great on him. That’s the mark of a true hottie. The other day he had a fedora on, which normally annoys me, but it looked super good on him. Also, I saw him with his hair slicked back and some aviator shades on. While it reminded me a little bit of the Kevin-Federline-types, it was still really cute.
Reason 7: Did I mention he’s hot?!
Seriously, Nick’s got to be the best looking guy in the house this season. I dig his personality, he’s cut, he’s got a really cute smile and the soul patch compliments his lips. I can already tell he’s going to be the Kaysar of this season, at least for me. I just hope his sticks around a little longer than Kaysar did.
Though there may be one or two hot guys this season on BB, the ultimate BB eye candy has got to be Kaysar Ridha from BB6 and BB7. Not only was he smart, caring, and an all around good guy, he was drop dead gorgeous too! His good looks and charm lead Dr. Will to declare him “the Brad Pitt of Muslims” early on in the all-star season.
Both Dr. Will and Hardy from BB2 may have been sexy, but Kaysar was definitely the best looking guy in BB history.
Since I’m reminiscing about previous houseguests, here’s a picture of Kaysar in all his hot glory.
Dr. Will Kirby, or The Evil Doctor as he was known in season 2 and 7, is one of the most memorable cast members in BB history. Before we kick off the new season, I thought I’d post a video of one of Will’s best moments from last year’s all-star season.
Here is Will Kirby talking to the internet viewers in the back yard:
Years ago, CBS debuted a new reality series called Big Brother. Back then, the cast was older, the show was more interactive, high-speed internet access was rare, and the live-feeds were tiny, grainy images of a chicken coop for most of the day.
Since then, the show has evolved into a summer guilty pleasure with eye-candy abound. Though there have been new twists in the game (the Power of Veto), new architecture in the house (the addition of a second story and HoH suite) and new houseguests to compete (hotties like Kaysar from BB6 and BB7), the show remains the most real of reality tv.
Unlike most reality shows, which are completely at the mercy of their editors, Big Brother offers something different: a live internet feed from inside the house. This allows viewers to watch all the plotting, strategizing, and back-stabbing that takes place during an average day in the house as it’s happening. These live feeds are what make the show so much better than other “reality” programs like Survivor or The Real World.
Big Brother also has one of the most dedicated fan communities on the web. BB fans are up at all house, watching the feeds, taking screen caps, summarizing any updates, and discussing their favorite alliances. While it may not exactly be Monday Night Football, fans of this show are more into it than any die-hard arm-chair-quarterback.
I’ve been a fan of Big Brother since the first season and I only missed one episode due to a huge storm that passed through my neighborhood and knocked out the power.
Last year, I started a blog for Big Brother All-Stars, my dream season, featuring some of my favorite players from seasons past. That blog became pretty popular, and I’ve decided to go for it again this year with Big Brother 8.
This blog will feature updates, commentary, links and even a few screencaps or YouTube videos from this season and maybe even from past seasons too.
Keep checking back here to see what’s cookin’ in the BB house!
