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!

On the show tonight, there was a little segment about Eric and Jessica and it looks like they really are into each other. It all just seems so odd. I mean, neither one is a prize as far as personality, but I’m still surprised that Jessica is into that twitchy little weasel.
As we all know, America voted to have Eric give the Woobie to Jessica and, upon receiving the task, he proclaimed, “We’re practically engaged in the house.” After he gave her the Woobie, they cuddled in her bed for a while.
This is one showmance that I just can’t handle. The thought of Eric and Jess making out on camera brings back nauseating memories of Erica and Boogie from All Stars…… yuck!
Here are some highlights from Dick’s HOH blog (in case you didn’t feel like going to the CBS site and reading the whole thing.) In his long blog post, Dick talks about his son Vincent and his daughter Danielle, the game so far, and his real feelings about the other people in the house.
On his relationship with his children…
As I think everyone watching this show should know…It has been extremely hard for both me and Daniele being thrown into this situation together. The other two situations that were part of the “twist” are not like this in any way whatsoever. Carol and Jess could care less if they ever see each other again. Joe and Dustin, the same thing applies. But Daniele is my daughter and the things I do here in the house, and in the game, can and will affect our relationship (or lack of) for the rest of our lives.
We both feel the same in the respect of…This is not fair. This is a complete and total disadvantage to each of us individually. But truth of the matter is that, it is fair. Our individual disadvantage is also the greater advantage we have on everyone else in the house. We committed to our alliance, and nothing will break that, period. Even though our personal relationship is a disaster, we both know that we can trust each other. And trust here is the most highly regarded commodity you can have in this place, period…end of story. So, although we have trouble trusting each other’s judgment at times, we trust each other’s loyalty no matter what.
Now, me and Daniele on a personal level…
Anyone out there who doubts that I truly want a deep, devoted, caring, loving relationship with my daughter should get up from their computers, walk into the kitchen and grab their biggest frying pan and proceed to hit themselves in the head with it as hard as they can for as long as they can until they fall unconscious. The rest of us will continue on…
Being here and playing out my relationship to the world on national TV is not what I want to do…But it seems that it is an opportunity for me to try and fix this mess of a relationship with my daughter. It sucks, but it doesn’t…Story of my life boys and girls, catch 22. Damned if I do and damned if I don’t kinda deal…sigh.
I don’t know what they are showing and what they aren’t, but our relationship has gone through some serious highs and lows in the last few weeks. Just this week she came up to the HOH and was yelling at me so loud that the entire house could hear it. I felt that it was hopeless. The next day I went to see if she would talk to me and after a rough start to the conversation, we ended up having the first heart to heart in over two years…and I got my first hug, although a one armed, limp one, a hug nonetheless…and it was an enormous leap for us in trying to fix this mess. Baby steps, people…
I know and fully understand that it must not be easy to have a father like me. I am not Mike Brady or Mr. Clever (if my old butt is outdating you young whipper snappers out there, I am referring to the fathers in The Brady Bunch and Leave it to Beaver.) And it must be hard in ways for both of my children, and I wish I were a different person for them in that way. But I’m not. I am who I am…and I make no apologies for who I am. I am a good person with a good heart and yes, I am a bit eccentric, I do cuss a lot, I drink, smoke, spit, fart, confront people and embarrass my kids on occasion…sorry.
What you people do not see is that my relationship with my son Vincent is truly wonderful (did I really just use the word wonderful there? Somebody hit me with a frying pan…) But it is true. I could not ask for a better relationship than I do with my son. Yes, we have ups and downs and we work through it. But we spend lots of time together and really enjoy each other’s company. I miss him dearly (did I just say dearly? What the hell is going on here?) And Vincent, I hope you are enjoying watching your old man on the show. I see you with your buddies cheering me on and going crazy when things go as they have gone for me this week in the house. I love you so much and hope you are proud of me. I miss you…And tell your grandmother the same. I hope I haven’t embarrassed you too much, and even if I have, I know that you enjoy it anyhow. I hope not to see you until the end of Sept. And FYI…I know the mileage on my Corvette there Jonesy, no driving my car or I will still kick your butt. Your sister also says hello.
A message to Danielle’s boyfriend…
Kris, realize that it is very hard here in many ways. Sometimes what seems up is really down and what is down seems up…Your head fools you and I can see your heart fooling you as well, at least for a little while. I think she realizes this and sees what is real, and you are real to her, in her life, for what she wants in life. Remember, this is only my opinion and I am not speaking for her, and as everyone watching knows, I am not as good as I think in things with my daughter, including knowing everything about how she thinks.
So, she will probably tell me I had no business saying those things, but as usual, I will anyway. But she did tell me to tell you that she loves you, misses you, is dying to see you and talk with you, and Happy Birthday…As for me, I don’t know you but for one dinner. I know you make her happy, and I can see how much she loves you. Don’t doubt her love for a second. Don’t let the show make your feelings waver for her. I will do everything I can to protect her here in the house and I want you to do the same for her outside the house. And from me…I hope you had a Happy Birthday, Bunny. And I hope to get to know you when this is all said and done.
There’s also a section where he talks about each house guest…
Do I have to write anything here???? Haven’t I said enough about her already? Well, yes…and no. This is a wait and see thing here. And don’t be surprised to see us working together (or at least not against each other) in the future. But yes, she is still a self-centered, self-absorbed, immature twit.
Nice lady. But Kail crossed me and lied to me too many times for me to be able to trust her with half of my bologna sandwich, forget about trusting her with anything important in the game here. I am not sure if it has leaked out yet or not, but she will not be going home this week as I promised her. She is too easily manipulated by me and I can get so deep into her head I am bringing a lighted miners cap with me next time.
I really do like Mike. I was surprised to hear the others say that they thought I was gonna punch him when I walked off the pedestal during the POV and told him he is gonna go up. I am stupid sometimes, but not that stupid…The guy could crush my skull with a jab. Mike made big mistakes in the game, just as Kail has. The Mrs. Robinson alliance is over and Mike should be seeing his friends next week. Sorry bro. You shouldn’t have worked to get me out last week. You underestimated me, as many here have and it is biting you in the butt first.
Love the guy, the White Rabbit…but can’t trust him 100%. He lied to me about something stupid and that lets me know…But I will use him and his smart perspective to further myself in the game.
Flips at the drop of a hat…drama queen. Will trust him only to a point. Will let him feel he is my confidant with my situation with Daniele. Will open up to him and show him emotion, but trust me…only for the game.
Love this girl. What a turn around from our introduction. But she is still a bit flip about certain things. She is one of the people that is a bit smarter than she gives off and we will help each other move along in the game.
The ray of sunshine in the house!! I adore this girl. She is no dumb blonde, trust me…She is much smarter than she lets on. We will be working together in the game. Vincent, she thinks you are cute and I wanna set you up with her, mister…
Trust her only to a certain point. She is an emotional basket case. She will be booted from the house because she cannot get a hold of herself at one point or another in the game. She doesn’t even realize it yet, but some people are getting sick of this crap already, me included.
UUUuuuuuuuuugh!!!! Do I trust this guy or no?? I want to, but there is too much conflicting stuff that goes along with him. So, no…I don’t. But he will have to side with this side of the house for a while, as not to expose himself and get booted. His stock in the house has gone down leaps and bounds over the last week or so when I outed him in a couple of alliances.
On everyone’s hit list. Not liked in the house… and I can see him going next week depending on who gets HOH.
Lastly, Dick includes a little message to everyone’s favorite evil doctor…
PS……….. Have I earned myself a ChillTown card yet? And not the kind Chicken George got either…What do you think Will?
Nominations could change depending on the results of the Veto competition. If so, then I hope Mike or Zach are nominated. Jen won the veto, but I didn’t see the point in making a new post about it. Dick has been saying that he will nominate Mike to replace her and that Mike will go home instead of Kail. That would be a good move, since Kail is pretty useless and Mike is the only one holding the Kail/Jen/Mike alliance together.
At the food competition they won a grill.
Earlier today, Danielle was telling Amber not to trust Nick. I’m not quite sure what to make of it. She still seems close with Nick, and he seems to be loyal to her, but something might have happened to drive a wedge in between them. I’ll post video if I find it.
I’m not quite sure where Amber stands, since she seems to be blabbing to everyone in the house. Today, there seemed to be a lot of tension between her and Dick. Apparently, they had a big fight. I wasn’t on the feeds at the time, but TheRealDeal2006 posted the video on YouTube. Thanks to nwokpeach, brando115 and insane on BB Chatter for the link.
Last night, Joe and Dustin got into a semi-fight when Dustin said he would not vote to keep Joe. Joe went on a rant about why Dustin just had to save him. He even begged for his vote and brought all this other stuff in from their past relationship. The fight was one of the more entertaining moments this season and some lovely person put it on YouTube. Here it is. It’s a bit long, about 40 minutes total, but you can view it here in four parts.
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.
Big Brother usually has some of the hottest cast members in reality tv. They spend the entire summer tanning, working out, and locked in a house with nothing to do but flirt with each other. Each year, there seems to be a stand-out couple, or potential couple, that sets the internet buzzing with speculation.
The lovely Janelle Pierzina, aka the Buxom Blonde Bombshell, has been involved in two of these “romances”. In season six, everyone was lighting up the chat rooms with theories about her and Kaysar. Last year during the all-star season, she was flirting with BB’s other top male heart throb, Dr. Will.
Here’s a rather infamous clip of Will and Janelle flirting while playing cards:
This clip was big amongst BB geeks like myself because it sounds like Janelle is whispering, “Why won’t you kiss me?” and “I really like you.” in his ear. Janelle had been an Angelina-Jolie-like force in the game and many fans were rather surprised that Will hadn’t given in to her charms. It seemed like the more he rejected her, the more she fell for him.
Their flirtation kept viewers glued to the live feeds because it seemed like they could suddenly hook up at any moment. The hard core fans, like paparazzi, wanted to be there to get the screen captures when and if they finally did. If she was the Angelina Jolie of the game, he was the Brad Pitt and the rumor mill was exploding with analysis of their every move. It was like a whole summer of US Weekly headlines.
I’m sure we can look forward to many more budding romances this season, or at least some amusing flirtations.
Life in the house can get pretty boring after hours on end with nothing to do. Houseguests choose to pass their time in different ways. Some stare into space and talk to themselves like Rachel from BB6, some spend copious amounts of time in the “Jack Shack” like Howie from BB6 and BB7, some choreograph horrible dance routines and talk about how cool and important they think they are like Mike Boogie from BB2 and BB7.
Will and Janelle from last year’s all-star season decided to pass their time by taking walks in the back yard and making up “fantasy dates” where they talked about what it would be like if they dated in high school.
