Big Brother 3, August 7: What a Girl Wants, What a Girl Needsby C. Brian Devinney -- 08/08/2002

It's time for another scintillating round of Big Brother 3 and we get that obligatory recap of Gerry nominating Lisa and Eric and his line about taking out the Queen and a Knight. So the nominations are over and if we all remember from the Saturday night show, Lisa left the nomination ceremony and closed herself up in the bathroom and she didn't lock the door. I mean, whenever I go to the bathroom, even my own home, I make sure I lock the door before I do anything. But then again, she wasn't dropping trou so I guess locking the door wasn't a necessary thing.
The bathroom was just an escape to breathe (or so she said). Oh yeah, when I want to breathe I go to a small cramped room with a toilet in it so I can really get some nice fresh air. Lisa is just beside herself in her misery. So she goes to her bedroom with Eric and Ki-Whore-a and starts to say how much she hates Gerry. In response, Eric says that Gerry is out of the house next week anyway. Ki-Whore-a wants him to walk out in shame. They go back to talking about his veto speech where he spared Marcellas from getting evicted and how he is nothing like the man he described himself as being or wanting to be in the house.
Now let me just get this out in the open and have it over and done with. They are exhibiting what I have come to call PND - Post-Nomination Depression. They make up whatever reason they can to rationalize why they are nominated. The best one they can come up with is that the "wrong person" won the Head of Household. Of course this means that the right person was Eric. Or Lisa. Or Ki-Whore-a. Or Sheryl from last season. There is no right or wrong person people. There are just people that are more likely to nominate you than others.
Anyway, in the Diary Room, Lisa says that she knew that Gerry was going to do something "like that." I just love it when she uses those really technical terms on me. Gerry, meanwhile, hated having to do the entire ceremony and the first words out of his mouth are, "That sucked!" Josh and Marcellas are there to console him and tell him he did the right thing.
However, the funniest part comes with how polarized the house is in favor of either one side or the other (or so the nominees want to think). Lisa was convinced by Danielle and Ki-Whore-a that she is safe while Roddy tells Eric that there is no way that he is going to be heading out anytime soon. Even if there is a tie, Roddy says, Gerry is going to choose Lisa over Eric. Oh, Roddy. You think you have this all figured out.
Ki-Whore-a says she doesn't like Gerry but she plans on staying on his good side because after all there is a little matter of a veto competition and ceremony that still needs to be conducted and if she isn't kissing ass enough she is making doubly sure of it now because she could find herself in a really bad position (and I am not going to tell you WHAT position that would be). Gerry tells her that he was going strictly on strategy that would help him stay in the house at least one or two more weeks. Ki-Whore-a says that she needs to get veto because if Lisa is removed then she feels she would be the replacement. At the very least let's give Gerry some credit for doing something that benefits him for once. I mean some people are wanting to get rid of others for the sole reason that they don't like them. But this is a strategic move to get rid of one of the more popular people in the house. How can you blame him for that (you stupid dumb-ass people)?
Roddy says that Gerry is not a bad guy and he is a much better person than people are giving him credit for. He's outside talking with Danielle about the situation with the nominations and they realize that they may have underestimated him after all. What I find interesting is that of the couples alliance, Roddy is the only person who doesn't' seem too impacted by the nominations. He's letting this roll off his back like water on a duck.
But anyway, Danielle and Roddy look at Gerry's background as a teacher for disabled children and his two masters degrees and know that this man isn't as heartless as the other three members of the couples alliance are painting him to be. Then there is some talk about Gerry's feet which didn't seem to make much sense to me so I am sure there is something there and it's disgusting, but the producers apparently chose not to bother us with those sorts of details that would make conversations they show actually make sense. Besides, can his feet be any worse than that new nasty, gross goatee that Josh is now sporting? But I digress once again.
Since veto power is so important this week we have to have the obligatory talk about what veto power means and what it can do and how it can change the entire game. Everyone is scared of the veto and Josh goes to talk to Gerry and says he is with him as long as possible. Of course, Josh is perhaps one of the more vulnerable people in the house – it's a tough call between him and Gerry for that title but it's all Josh for right now.1 2 3 4 Next-->
