|As usual for Wednesdays, it was fairly quiet. The HG's were called into the DR one by one to tape good-byes and comments. (The actual voting will be live on Thursday.)
Following is the rundown from wake-up until 3:00 pm. I stopped there so I could get this posted, but there is good stuff to come after 3:00, including a Karen meltdown, and some of the best Cowboyisms of the season so far. Those will be in the full recap posted on Thursday the 26th.
BB wakes up the HG’s a little after 9:00 am...Chit chat in the kitchen...Marvin complains that the bowflex still hasn’t arrived...A little before 10:00 am BB calls Adria, Natalie, Michael for a second wake-up call.
At about 10:30 the cameras switch us to Karen and Nakomis sitting outside talking about the twins...K says that the twins switch off...One twin asks all friendly, bakes cookies, and plays kissie kissie with Di and Drew, then the next day the other twin does it with A going around with the croc tears....K: Do we keep the one with the brains or the one that doesn’t win anything...K talks about the BB rule that says you can’t share your money and ways the twins could get around it...Di comes outside.
Di joins in the talk about the twins...She says that Nat "attacked" her last night....Di also admits to being jealous when she walked into the room and saw Adria with her arm around Drew and looking at family pics with him....Then A started to rub Drew’s back and Di got mad... Nak: Does that mean that I can’t give Drew a back rub... Di: It’s fine if you or K give him a massage, but “people that I don’t like touching “my man” gets me p*ssed”.....Di says that BB has started calling the HG into the DR for good-byes...She hates doing good-byes for people she doesn’t like....Nak asks Di how she is feeling today “No depressed day?”..Di says “No, I feel pretty good."...Nak wishes tomorrow would just come.
The cameras switch to the kitchen where CB is talking with the twins....He talks about April’s upcoming birthday and says that he and April’s wedding is scheduled for December 10, his parent’s anniversary..He’d like to get married outside...CB goes outside....Adria asks Nat, “So, did you get a ‘We’ll see’ last night.”....Nat: No I got a “You know where I stand.....(Ed. note: Not clear from my information who they were talking about.)
Outside, Diane, Marvin and CB are trying to set up the volleyball net, but they want to set it up on land, not in the pool...They stack some tables on top of a lounger for the net to rest on...Diane hits a ball served by CB and lofts the ball over the BB wall....M calls for someone to send the ball back, and it is thrown back over the wall a few minutes later....BB puts the HG’s on a BY lockdown and CB promises no more Olympic serves...Di says it wouldn’t have happened if it was a regular volleyball...The HG’s plan a volleyball tournament for tonight.
It seems that Marv’s Y&R appearance has sparked some acting fever in the HG’s, especially CB...First M and CB act out a scene from “A Few Good Men” (with K helping CB with his lines), then move to “Pulp Fiction.”....Marv has a fake clapper and says, “Cowboy, take 80.”....Marv talks to K about impressed he was with the actors on Y&R. They had to learn a lot of lines, but could also improvise because they knew their characters so well.
CB is having so much fun pretending he’s an actor that he goes into the kitchen, and gets Drew to act out scenes with him...The scenes CB makes up almost always involve fighting over a woman, losing a woman, or, in one classic, CB and Drew as surfers talking about how they were going to get laid...Nat joins them for awhile and they pretend that they are fighting over her...CB keeps making up new scenes. (Ed. note: CB’s acting ability was just about what you’d expect. Drew surprised me. DeNiro doesn’t have to worry about losing work to Drew, but Drew was unusually animated and better than I expected. Of course, it also could have been the contrast with CB. <g>)....CB wants to make up more scenes to do with Drew later....A comes out of the DR room crying.... Both Nat and CB comfort her....CB agrees with A that it’s been a tough week, and has been one of the worst weeks so far for being homesick.
Most of the HG’s are outside playing volleyball....A/Nat are inside, with Adria helping Natalie pack, upset that they are stereotyped....Earlier M had said that the twins couldn’t play on the same team for the volleyball tournament because they would have an advantage...The twins say this isn’t fair--they haven’t played volleyball since high school...They continue to talk in a similar vein....
Outside, the HG’s are getting punchy and dare Diane to try to fit into the dryer....Di says she will do it as long as they promise not to shut the dryer door on her...The HG’s laugh and cheer her on....Di finally fits herself into the dryer, and, surprise, surprise, Drew closes the door....Immediate FISH!....When the feeds return, the HG’s are in the kitchen....Di: Sorry BB, I couldn’t contain myself...The HG’s kid Diane about BB being mad at her...Talk turns to Girl Scouts and selling cookies...
During this conversation, A/Nat are still in the Wood Room packing up Nat’s stuff....Nat is upset and feels the other HG’s are avoiding her (which they are)...Adria suggests to Nat that she be softer in her responses to the other HG’s, to not sound so defensive....It’s now about 2:15 pm.
The feeds switch to CB and M talking in the storage room....M tells CB that people may be lying to him about who they are voting out on Thursday....He tells CB that the girls might vote CB out for Will’s sake....At some point in this conversation Karen comes into the SR for a moment, while M has left temporarily....CB asks K if she is sure he is safe. K assures him “Absolutely.”...She assures CB that if she knew something she would tell him and would never lie to him...CB hugs her and says he knows that K would never lie to him.
Marvin is planning menus for tonight and Thursday...The HG’s want to have a big dinner after the show in case they are on food restrictions beginning Friday....Di reminds Marvin that they have to be in bed by midnight....M: We’ve done so many live shows, we know what to do....M imitates Julie Chen, “Hello Houseguests! The power is up for grabs tonight.”.... M: She (Julie) don't want to be asking me stuff. She don't know what I'm going to say to her.
Marvin tells Drew and Diane about his recent conversation with CB in the SR....M: I just told the CB his *ss is gone...Both Drew and Diane think the conversation is really funny...Dr to Diane: Are you going to go along with this?...Di: Seeing someone squirm is just fun.. Drew wonders what's going through CB’s head right now..M: He's packing his $hit right now....CB is called to the DR...Di tells CB to tape his good-byes to himself...Marv: We’re just playin’ Cowboy. Just playin’
It’s about 3:00 pm, so I’m going to stop here for now.
