Big Brother 4, July 18: Jee, It’s Nomination Time AgainPage 3

We learn more about Nate. He's from Oklahoma, which prompts David to do his impression of Nate. It's a deep Southern accent complete with holding up three fingers to represent the number four and two fingers for the number three. Now, I have made a lot of fun of my own Southern heritage, but something about this just takes the cake. Considering that this is the guy that said something about his grandmother watching him have sex on the live feeds, coupled with the fact that he threw up while having sex, doesn't really do much to give him any credibility, now, does it?
Anyway, we get a litany of imitations of Nate and his trademark "Golly" that he tends to overuse (when some of us would just rather say something shorter, one syllable, and probably only found in movies rated "R" or higher), as well as other Southern terms that even I am prone to use. "Fixin' to" seems to be one of those terms that Nathan and I share, since I have busted that one out to the bewilderment of my colleagues at the office. Of course, if I ever hear Jee say, "I'm fixin' to make love to you" again, then I may have to reconsider my usage of the term.
Now we are up to the food competition. Last week, they only had carbohydrates to eat, which means that they have been dropping weight like you would not believe because they have not had any protein, fruits, or vegetables. For this competition, they had to divide into two teams of five. Dana and Jun made sure that they were split up on different sides since they tend to be the only ones that can do any cooking. Outside, there are five casseroles topped with various toppings such as French fries. The winning team gets to pig out on the good stuff while the losing team… well, it's PB&J for them for an entire week. When they are cued to go, they are to remove the topping and taste the meat and vegetable combo underneath. After tasting (just tasting; they don't have to swallow), they must go to their board and identify the meat and vegetable combo used in the casserole. Considering that some of the meats could be squirrel, possum, and rabbit (not to mention “testicles”), this is not going to be a very tasty meal.
Up first are Nathan and Alison. Alison freaks out when she has to dig into the bowl first. Nathan immediately knows that it's ham, but he blows the vegetable, sending him back for another mouthful. Alison, however, nails it quickly as she immediately gets the ham portion and also picks the right vegetable - cauliflower. Yep. That is one nasty combination.
Score: Red Team: 1; Blue Team: 0
Justin jumps into the second bowl while Nathan tries to redo the vegetable. He goes for mushrooms. He's wrong and so is Justin, who thinks his dish is corned beef and cabbage. Mmmmm. Corned beef. On rye. With spicy brown mustard. Yum. I'm so there. Justin takes another bite as does Nathan, who picks artichokes this time. Again he's wrong, and Justin doesn't really seem to be enjoying his casserole that much. So will he get it right this time? Oh yeah. His dish is venison (deer meat) and artichokes. OK, the gross factor just went up.
Score: Red Team: 2; Blue Team: 0
Erika is up for the red team while Nathan fails again in choosing bok choy (mmm… bok choy tofu mushroom soup… I'm getting hungry now). But finally he gets the vegetable, sending Michelle, literally, up to the plate next.
Score: Red Team 2; Blue Team: 1
Michelle takes one bite and grimaces, which is pretty much what Justin did as well. Erika's first guess is squirrel meat and cactus, which is wrong, and Michelle's first guess is pork and radishes. What do these people eat in real life is what I want to know? Michelle picks rabbit and artichokes next and is wrong, which sends her back, but she nails the venison and says it is sad she ate Bambi.
Dana is next and she says she's just going to taste but not swallow. They have barf buckets handy, which would be a good thing, since Erika correctly gets the third dish and it's a doozy - oysters and brussels sprouts. I used to like brussels sprouts as a child; then I grew up and came to resent them every time they were on the dinner table. I don’t think I’ve had a brussels sprout in about ten years. And that's a good thing.
Score: Red Team: 3; Blue Team: 2
Jack is up next for the red team, while Dana is still struggling. Dana says she's not eating it, but it looks like she's doing some chewing. Meanwhile Jack goes for shrimp and jicama, which for those of you who don't know is a Mexican turnip. I only know this because I was home sick one day from work and couldn't find the remote control when Martha Stewart came on and she was making a crudités platter with it.
Back to Dana, who has to be getting pissed right now because as everyone said, everything pisses her off. She thinks her dish is squirrel and lima beans. Nope. And back she goes. Jack takes another stab at his and he's right with the combination of liver and cactus. Personally, I've never had cactus before, so I have no idea how I would guess what it would taste like. Meanwhile, Dana has finally gotten her combo correct and sent Robert up to the counter.
Score: Red Team: 4; Blue Team: 3
Jun is definitely not into her dish. Her meat is cubed and tough to chew. She thinks it's squirrel and radish but it's not. She changes to moose and lima beans and is wrong again. Meanwhile, Robert thinks his combo is rattlesnake and radishes. Finally, Jun nails her combo of tongue and bell peppers to give her team the 5-3 win. The red team is ecstatic since they get to eat real food for a week. Dana and her blue team are all collectively pissed because it means that they are stuck with a week of PB&J after their week of nothing but carbs. I never thought I would agree with Jun, but her team did kick butt.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
