Big Brother 4, July 18: Jee, It’s Nomination Time AgainPage 2
View Printable version of this article
Flashback moment (and we know it's a flashback since they are showing it to us in black and white as if we couldn't figure that part out ourselves) where Jun tells people that Jee's father passed away "from, like, cancer." OK, was it cancer, Jun, or was it something else and you’re just using the generic "cancer" as your response since you have no idea of what he really died from because you're a complete moron? Jun says that she was there to support him during this time and Robert thinks that this will help Jun escape the nomination process. But perhaps even more laughable is Jun's statement that she wants to stay and win and she's not leaving earlier… oh wait… everyone needs to pause for a moment for this one… she's not leaving earlier than she wishes.
OK, Jun, honey, baby, darling. I hate to tell you this, but for the most part, you really have no say in when you go. I know you'd like to believe that you have the power to change everyone's mind about you, but for the most part, you gotta just accept the fact that if they are going to vote against you, they are going to vote against you, and there is nothing that you can do about it. Shall we go back to last season when the decoy was sent home three weeks in a row? Or was it four? Anyhow, you of all people should know that no one and nothing is sacred in this house.
So enough about Jun (even though I could probably go on about her for weeks) and let's turn to Dana. Now Dana, to me at least, looks a bit like Shannon from the second season of Big Brother which would, at the very least, make me want to hide my toothbrush from her. Everything apparently pisses Dana off. I know a lot of people like Dana who have to be upset or mad about something that they pretty much have little or no control over because that makes them happy. Isn't that kinda sad that you have to be upset about something in order to be happy? Doesn't that just sound wrong on multiple levels?
First, it's the fact that there are so many glasses around the house that have to be cleaned because no one seems to be washing dishes but her. OK, so a few people are washing dishes, but Dana is definitely in the minority when it comes to this. But overall, Dana just seems to get pissed off about everything. I think it was Alison who said that all you have to do is just think about Dana and she gets pissed off. Dana isn't coming across as a Stable Mabel here. Something tells me that if they had rabbits, a few of them would have been boiling on the stove right now.
In fact, Dana makes her way into the HoH room to talk to Jee and Robert. She goes on this roundabout diatribe about how his winning Head of Household was probably the best thing in the world that could have happened to her and in fact, she's prompting him to put up one of the women she doesn't like under the guise of hanging out with the people in the house that she does like until the end of the game and not having to deal with the riff raff. Well, that's all fine and good in theory, but if my memory serves correctly, this didn't always happen, did it? At some point, the people started to find something that grated on each others’ nerves when it came to their housemates and they just had to get them out of the house?
Outside, Alison, Nate, and Jack are wondering what they have to do to get Dana nominated. Of course, they don't trust her at all because they think she can keep a secret about as well as Martha Stewart can conduct a legal stock transaction. Alison openly admits to hating her - well, if the subtitles are to be believed, she "______" hates her. Nate somehow thinks he has some form of control over Jee and I'm wondering what kind of control it could be. Is it mind control? Is it remote control? Is Jee just a figurehead Head of Household, or does he actually wield power?
What I find most interesting is that Robert is also sitting there and I have to wonder if he is a part of the conversation, or if he is just eavesdropping to see what he can do in terms of swinging the nominations in his favor… whichever way that may be. That, of course, makes me wonder even more when Nathan and Robert are in the Head of Household room passing on the info that Nate hates Dana and that's good for them because they know that would be one vote in Dana's favor to get her out of the house and keep them in for one more week.
Of course, here I am sitting at home thinking to myself, "Golden veto, golden veto, golden veto. All she has to do is win the freakin' golden veto and she's outta there and then what people?" Dana, from what I have seen so far, seems to be far more astute than Hall of Shame inductee Marcellas Reynolds in that she would take herself off of the chopping block instead of trusting that the vote would go in her direction. I mean, why would you not take yourself off the chopping block? I don't care what reasons you may have; it just makes sense because it's the only way to guarantee that you will be around a week longer.
Am I on crack here, or does that make perfect sense?
The next day comes to the Big Brother house and everyone is getting ready and doing their morning rituals. I, for one, am glad that I am not in that house (no, I didn't audition) because I cannot fathom sharing one bathroom with all of those people and not getting the time to spend in front of the mirror to take care of some necessary things like shaving. I would say doing my hair, but since I switched to a buzz cut, I would just need someone to clipper me down every four weeks or so and I would be fine.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
