Big Brother 4, August 5: Dana’s Last Standby Paris Cosby -- 08/06/2003
View Printable version of this article
OK, instead of recapping everything that went on Tuesday night on Big Brother, how about we just say, "Dana's flipping out, Dana's flipping out, Dana's flipping out!" and call it a day. No? Okay, on to the show then...
Nathan isn't happy with Alison's decision to nominate Jun instead of Justin. He feels that if one of "them" win HOH next week that he'll be up on the block. Umm, yeah! I think that's a foregone conclusion. Dana, meanwhile, is loving the fact that Nathan is ticked off at Alison. Stop the presses! Something's gone awry! Dana is happy? Oh, but it's at the expense of someone else's misery so I guess that doesn't veer too far off the course.
Now Dana is whining and we're back to normal. Jun is keeping her in line telling her that she did the same thing by betraying everyone the week she was HOH. I think Dana may conveniently forget that or she rationalizes it. I'm not sure but either way, she sees this mess as Nathan's fault for Vetoing Alison and not hers for putting up Alison to begin with.
We move out to the backyard now where Nathan, Erika, and Jack are discussing Alison's nomination choices. They don't understand why she did what she did and Jack feels like he's on clean-up duty. They note that everyone is playing a very emotional game this year. Nathan mentions that if he wins the Golden Veto, he may take Dana off the block. Nathan! Are you on crack? You should take Jun off if you win it. I swear it makes less sense to me each time I watch it.
Jun is one of the only stable players in this game, as is Jack. They are both playing the game very well – especially Jun because she has both sides trusting her even though she moves between them quite easily. I'm not a huge Jun fan but I think she'll be sticking around for a while.
I'm not sure if Alison is just stupid or whether she is a pathological liar. She's shown making her deal with Justin (not to put him up) and then she's shown telling Nathan, Erika, and Jack that she will put him up if someone is vetoed off the block. Maybe I didn't understand her deal with Justin but she seems to lie a lot. I think she may sail through though once Dana is gone.
Everyone is now sitting around in the living room playing cards and are discussing who has been making out with whom. I swear this year is like one big drunken fraternity party! Amanda and Dave, Justin and Dana, Nathan and Michelle, Alison and Dave, Alison and Nathan, Alison and... oops, maybe that was it. Alison denies making out with Dave. How does she think no one knows this? She is in the Big Brother house with cameras on her 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Infrared cameras as well! The apology she gives to Donny (her “boyfriend”) in the Diary Room is just ridiculous as well. I don't even think Donny is her boyfriend anymore.
Dana is now out on the basketball court with Erika. She just can't believe or figure out how this all happened. I wonder! I have no idea how this is a shock to her. She is saying that Jun isn't a strong competitor and she shouldn't be up on the block. I think that saying Jun isn't a strong competitor is like saying there are no peanuts in peanut butter. Jun's definitely working it, just not as openly as Dana plays.
We have a nice brotherly love moment now between Jee and Justin. It's actually quite cute the way they tease each other. Mostly Justin teasing Jee about his accent. It's all in good fun and both boys do genuinely like each other. It's nice to see people actually getting along in this house.
Dana's whining now to Jack and Erika. She never stops! She honestly doesn't realize that she did this to herself by her actions last week. Jack and Erika listen to her and try to console her but once she's gone, it's eye rolling time and head shaking time. These two are like the babysitters of the house, it's nuts! They do seem to really be thinking in this game though. And Jack's one liners are hilarious! I loved the "Oh, Alley-cat, what did you do? It's like shooting a water pistol at a Buffalo." He seems so serious and Mr. Ex-FBI agent but then he comes out with some of the funniest things I've ever heard! I'm sure Chiara isn't feeling so bad about her "Chiwhora" nickname now that Jack has labelled Dana as having "the sex appeal of a buzzard's crotch." It can't get any worse than that, can it?
Jee and Jun share a moment outside in the backyard. She's decided that her ice towards Jee is melting. I think these two do care for each other but not in a romantic type of way. I think they share a little bit of friendship and I also think that Jun feels motherly towards Jee. She takes care of him it seems.
Good Lord, Alison is now comparing Donny's picture to Nathan and asking who is better looking. Are we 12, Alison? Justin pipes up with "Donny!" but I think it's more to harass Nate than anything else. Then we move into Nathan being a pretty boy who wears make-up and has his nails done. He's "definitely in touch with his feminine side" the HouseGuests say. I don't think Nathan is gay but then again, I don't know that he isn't. Alison thinks she "turned him gay." Please, Alison! Even if you could turn people gay (which you can't), you wouldn't be the one to do it.
It must be "be nice to the exes" night on Big Brother because now Erika and Robert have a nice moment on the hammock. They seem to be getting along. I really like this ex-factor. It's worked out quite well. Maybe there isn't as much drama as they expected (now that Scott is gone) but then again, with Dana in the house, I'm not sure any more could really be tolerated!
We move to Jee now who is visibly upset. Robert assumes that he misses his girlfriend and tries to console him a bit, but Jee says that, "no, that's not it." It's the anniversary of his father's death and he's taking it a little hard this year not being able to be with his family. Robert does his best to console Jee and he is very genuine about the whole thing and, I think, makes Jee feel a bit better. Jee says that he'll be performing a ceremony later on that evening to honor his father's memory.1 2 Next-->
