Big Brother 4, July 11: Nomination TimePage 3
View Printable version of this article
So who will Nathan nominate? Well, in case we didnít get it already, heís getting really sick of Scott. Jun, Dana, and Alison join Nathan in HOH room. Then Scott comes in. Dana says Scott is starting to freak out. He tells the others that heís sticking to what was said; heís with the eight. Well goody for him, but heís not the one who has to worry about sticking with the plan yet, is he? Nathan assures him that theyíre with the plan. No problem. Nothing to see here. Be on your way. But Scott says there is a lot of insecurity among some of the Elite 8, yet hopes they are all still together. He tells the others that insecurity will kill them, so donít think for a minute they arenít eight. As if he has the power. Still, in a way heís right Ė if people are insecure they might form separate alliances. If they are certain of being in the main alliance Ė whether itís true or not Ė they might not bother with sub-alliances or counter-alliances.
As soon as Scott leaves, the others make fun of him. So Iím thinking they didnít really get that point I just mentioned.
OK, now itís finally almost time for the nominations. Alison says there will be a lot of stress added after Nathan comes out with the nominations. Erika is concerned. Scott says heís not nervous, if it happens, it happens Ė itís a game. Dana says there are no guarantees until the key comes out of box.
In case we missed it the first time around, Nathan re-explains how he will nominate people. OK, OK! My four-year-old gets it, fercryingoutloud! Moving on.
Nomination time. You know, looking at that nomination box, itís a good thing Michelle didnít win HOH Ė I donít think she could have carried out the box! Itís bigger than she is.
Nathan says he cares for each of them, heís glad heís had an opportunity to meet Ďem, etc. But then he says he hasnít had the chance to know everybody as a person. Er, okay. Iím pretty sure you just contradicted yourself, but whatever. He continues that itís not personal, itís a game.
Danaís key comes out first. Then Alison, Jack, Robert, Justin, Jun, David, Erika, Scott, Michelle. (Smart thinking mixing in some of the exes before all of the Elite 8, otherwise it would have looked too much like a boot order.) So Jee and Amanda are nominated. Nathan says he chose Amanda because he hasnít had the chance to really get to know her (again contradicting himself from before). Heís tried, but he just doesnít feel like he can trust her in a game sense. But he loves her as a person. (How does he know if he hasnít been able to get to know her?!) Scott looks furious as Nathan is speaking. Anyway, Jee was nominated because Nathan needed somebody to compare against Amanda. He says Jee was his best bet Ė nothing personal but this is way it has to happen.
Amanda is not happy. She says she has not said one bad thing about Nathan, and she thinks heís defending somebody else. Trust is a big word and she doesnít know where it came from. Sheís not sure how, but she will work way to stay in. Scott says privately that the speech had to be the most pathetic thing heíd ever seen. He didnít like the disrespect Nathan showed Amanda and heís pissed off. Because of that, he says he will do everything he can to ďsend that hick boy home.Ē Those cracks in the alliance are growing bigger by the minute.
For his part, Nathan says he was looking out for himself and the alliance the eight originally formed. Jee says the alliance felt Amanda should be out (in other words, it ainít exactly a secret alliance). Even Jun says as much as she doesnít like him, she didnít want him nominated yet. But heís a pawn. She thinks people want to keep their own exes around so they can use them later. With that, we end until Tuesday.
OK, it wasnít the smartest thing in the world for Nathan to let everybody know that he wants Amanda out and he just put up Jee to be a pawn. However, at least he learned a lesson and didnít put up somebody popular and from within his own alliance as the second nominee, expecting the popular one to easily win while the other left. We all know how well that has worked in the past. This way, even if Amanda sticks around, another one of the five exes leaves and the Elite 8 is happy Ė though perhaps we should call them the Two Groups of Four at this point since itís obvious the eight really arenít in it together anymore. As I figured, that didnít last long Ė an alliance based on who happens to be in a certain location at a given time doesnít have much chance of lasting once personalities come into play. And with that thought, weíll leave you until Tuesday.
