Big Brother is watching

Hope everybody is keeping cool for this long long heat wave that we have to endure for another EIGHT hours (we should start dropping in temp by 7PM and hit 62 degrees by tomorrow morning 7ish). Summers over.

BUT NO - SUMMER IS STILL HERE IF BIG BROTHER IS ON.

I bet nobody is watching this fantastic strategy show but BB did some great casting this year with this group of caricatures with actual brains and personalities are very entertaining.  STILL, the best game on TV.  ANYBODY that likes strategy games should watch this - highly entertaining and insightful.

Now that the fluff has been voted out and some of the opening volleys have calmed down AND, more importantly, most house guests REAL personalities are coming out here is who we have left.



Amber

Amber - Part of the original alliance called the Bomb Squad which consisted of a whopping 8 members and was doomed from the beginning.  She became part of the all male alliance because a FORMER house guest went whacko and decided to have her in the group - he is gone now.

Has no actual personality BUT - is a grown-up and is not there to have a showmance. She is like a real person.







Caleb

Caleb - WOW - this dude has a HUGE personality and HUGE muscles. He is another member of The Bomb Squad but does not realize, YET, that him and Amber are the ONLY members in that defunct alliance.  His problem is that he has totally gone head over heals over Amber and Amber wants nothing to do with him at ALL.  However, Caleb assumes that if he likes someone she will automatically like him back. His game play has left the building.  The odd thing is that he really has a big heart AND a huge ego.





Dead woman walking. She will be gone this week and this is the worst photo of her ever taken. 
Christine

Christine the tattooed one. Alliances just keep falling into her lap and she just goes along. Right now she is on the 5 member Detonators (basically The Bomb Square without Celab and Amber). Good game player and is good friends with Nicole and Hayden's on the non-named "friends" alliance.   







Derrick

 Derrick - the normal one - an undercover cop and probably the most normal person there. Running the Detonators (Christine, Cody, Frankie, Zach).  A great game player and knows what is going on for the most part. 

If there is such a thing as a caricature of a normal person - its him.
Donny
Donny Donny Donny - America as fallen in love with Donny - a student of the game and pretty smart.  He's a janitor and dare I say a country bumpkin, Forest Gump kind of guy.  His parents do not want the show (Gunsmoke and Bonanza are more important).  House guests think he is maybe para military? a Harvard professor? a super genius scientists? but no - he is Donny the janitor. 

"I'm probably smarter than they think I am, but I'm probably not as smart as I think I am."


Cody

Cody - his problem is that him and Amber have a friendship going and Caleb HATES it and is freakishly jealous.  And it's just a friendship.  Nice guy totally.
Frankie
Frankie is the flamboyant Broadway dancer (Mama Mia) who's sister is currently one of the biggest pop stars in America (yet I personally had never heard of her) Ariana Grande.  He's a little wild at times but has a good personality when not playing it up to the camera.  His strategy in the game is to play ALL sides until week 8 and then pick up. 
Zach
Zach came into the game saying - "I don't have a lot of friend because I'm my own best friend - I don't like most humans at all".  He is playing a Dr. Will game (Dr. Will was one of the greatest game players of all time and invented how to play this game i season 2).  He is aggressive and friendly at the same time and he cuddles with Frankie "I like girls, I'm not bi at all but there is something about cuddling with Frankie . . . .BUT I LIKE GIRLS".  
Jocasta
Jocasta - I can not stand this woman - a preacher that wears a dumb bow tie all the time, she must have a hundred of them and everything she does she thanks God for it. She had the flu for 3 days and was throwing up constantly and was thanking God for allowing her to throw up. REALLY???    Donny saved her from eviction and she wept way too much.
Nicole
Very nice, very sweet, very smart country girl having a showmance with really nice Hayden.







Hayden
Hayden is an awesome surfer dude. Honest, likable, and funny. 

Here is the problem at the moment - The detonators are running the house and while others know that there is some big alliance running things . . . . they are not forming a counter alliance.  At some point they need to focus.  I think there are so many other shoot off alliances that that is what is getting in the way.  Will it be too late when they realize it's us vs. them.  They are all in a "as long as it's not me going home this week"?  mode. 

Watch the show Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sunday nights CBS.  If you more then one show and start to see actual personalities you might be surprised.

I'm worn out - that's enough.
