Big Brother 4, September 3: Alliance of Mistrust, by David Bloomberg: It’s a live Veto meeting and a live eviction tonight! Will Alison use the Veto to get herself off the block?

Big Brother 4, September 2: Burning the Candle at Three Ends, by C. Brian Devinney: Who does Alison really want to see leave?

And there you have it.

Big Brother 4: Why Jack Lost, by David Bloomberg: Jack was nominated three times, and each time he was assured that he was safe. Why was the third time the charm as far as getting rid of him? What caused the women to go against the wishes of the Stooges? Why did Jack lose?
Big Brother 4, August 27: Jee Finally Loses, by David Bloomberg: Jee has won everything this week. But he doesn’t get an eviction vote, so the others can do whatever they want.

Big Brother 4, August 26 Live Feed Highlights: The Second Rise and Fall of Jee, by Sting7: With the specter of possibly two contestants leaving this week, the HouseGuests are blissful unaware.

The answers are here.
Big Brother 4: Erika or Jack, Who Should Be Voted Out?, by Phil Kural: Jack and Erika are up for eviction, and discussion has been going back and forth among the HouseGuests as to who should be voted out.

Big Brother 4, August 23: The Lone Gunman, by David Bloomberg: Everybody pleads their cases as they wait for The Big Twist. Meanwhile, in one of the best non-game-related segments of the series, Jack explains how he knows that Oswald was the lone assassin in the JFK killing. Jee is the HOH – can he get the Veto and become the game’s version of the lone gunman?
Big Brother 4: Twist and Nomination Results – Was the Right Move Made?, by David Bloomberg: Now that the Twist and the Nominations have occurred in the house, were the right moves made by those who made them? Or will they have nasty repercussions? We can’t reveal too much about the contents of this article in this mini-summary, or else it would give away the spoiler, so you’ll have to just read on to find out details.
Big Brother 4, August 21 Live Feed Highlights: The Twist and Nominations!, by Sting7, with David Bloomberg: So, what is the twist? Well, you have to Expect the Unexpected! And you’ll have to read on to find out. Also, Jee makes his nominations. Do we need to Expect the Unexpected there as well?
Big Brother 4: Why Justin Lost, by David Bloomberg: Justin was a good player – good enough to be targeted by the Original alliance almost as soon as the game began. He lasted much longer than that alliance did, but finally was evicted. Why did Justin lose?
Big Brother 4, August 20: The Two Stooges, by David Bloomberg: Only two stooges remain after the eviction vote. But will it be Justin, as has seemed obvious since Erika won HOH?

Big Brother 4, August 18-19 Live Feed Highlights: Nude Boxing and Hair Highlighting, by Sting7: Why is Jun boxing in the nude? Why is Alison wearing foil in her hair? And what is Robert’s latest plan if he sticks around and the two remaining stooges gain control?

Big Brother 4: Point/Counterpoint on the Show and Remaining Contestants, by Paris Cosby & Sting7: Two RealityNewsOnline writers have rather different opinions on how good (or bad) this season is and what they think of the contestants themselves.

Big Brother 4: How Alison Can Win, by David Bloomberg: Alison may not be well-liked, but she has managed to get herself into a position from which she should actually be able to see the winner’s circle. How can somebody that nobody trusts actually snag a win? David says he has the answer.
Big Brother 4, August 18 Live Feed Highlights: Jee, Your Hair Smells Terrific!, by Sting7: Looks like it’ll take a miracle to save Justin! Who does Jack say is meant to be a lawyer?

Big Brother 4, August 17 Live Feed Highlights: Calm Before the Storm?, by Sting7: New plots are being hatched and plans being made for all sorts of contingencies. Is the Power of Veto used? Who thinks they would be too big of a target? And who had previously tried out for The Amazing Race?
Big Brother 4, August 16: Bullet with Stooges’ Wings, by Brian James: Despite all their rage, the HouseGuests are still just hamsters in a cage as the first endurance Head of Household competition this season concludes. Later in this enjoyable episode, a clambake from hell determines whether they’ll have to be drawn-and-quartered - er, eat PB&J, and the weekly nominations are made. Oh, and in case you didn’t know it before, exercise is good for you!
Big Brother 4, August 15-16 Live Feed Highlights: Veto Competition and New Strategies, by Sting7: Plenty of discussions of strategy in the house, as well as Alison’s view on Japan and Pearl Harbor. If the Stooges lose a member, who do they want as Shemp? Who wins the Power of Veto and America's Choice?
Big Brother 4, August 15 Live Feed Highlights: The Mis-Education of Jee, by Sting7: As the players decrease, moves are being made that could decide the game. Who has been nominated for eviction? Who has declared their official allegiance to one side? Who has made themselves a triple agent? Why is Robert quoting Monica Bailey? The answers are here!
Big Brother 4, August 14 Live Feed Highlights: I Wanna Go Hooooome!, by Sting7: ...and the game turns, turns, turns!

Why is Alison so upset? The answers are here!
Big Brother 4: Why Nathan Lost, by David Bloomberg: Nathan seemed to be in a good position from Day 1. He didn’t have an ex in the house and he seemed able to compete well in challenges. What turned everything around so dramatically? Why did Nathan lose?
Big Brother 4: Is There Any Strategy in the House?, by Jeffrey D. Sadow: While previous incarnations of Big Brother have provided annoying personalities, there was some strategy there as well. This time, almost all of them are annoying and almost none of them have a plan! What can we expect for the rest of this game?
Big Brother 4, August 13 HOH Competition Spoiler!, by Sting7: It’s the steel cage match! When we left Big Brother last night, all of the eligible HouseGuests were still in the HOH competition. As the night went on, who dropped out, who made deals, and who is the new HOH?

Big Brother 4, August 12: The Two-Faced Bitch Show, by David Bloomberg: Alison is so upset over what’s happened to Nathan. She’s his only friend in the house.

Along the way, there is also a Veto competition and the possibility that somebody might use it!
Big Brother 4, August 12 Live Feed Highlights: Jun Is Bursting Out All Over, by Sting7: Jack’s prospects look dimmer and dimmer.

Big Brother 4: Why Dana Lost, by David Bloomberg: Things are certainly calmer in the Big Brother house now that Dana is gone. But how did she go from the pinnacle of power to a quick trip out the door? In Big Brother, such changes can occur in the blink of an eye, and Dana certainly helped assure her own loss. But why did Dana lose?
Big Brother 4, August 7 Live Feed Highlights: The Latest Defection, by Sting7: Nathan has made his pitch for survival. Will it work? Has Alison really dumped her allegiance with Nathan and joined the Stooges? And, which male keeps a calendar of naked men in their bedroom at home? The answers are here!
Big Brother 4, August 6-7 Live Feed Highlights: Nate’s Big Move, by Sting7: When the live show has ended, it’s time for plotting and scheming anew. It seems that everybody thinks Nathan is going, but what does he have up his sleeve? Is he going to try to find a way to stick around?
Big Brother 4, August 6: Campaigning, Rationalizing, and Other Hypocrisies, by David Bloomberg: Dana wants to stay in the game, but she won’t campaign against Jun. Or so she says – even when faced with the fact that this is exactly what she was doing. Hey, I know, let’s redefine words! And while the HouseGuests were at it, all sorts of rationalizing came to the front today, not just in Dana, but especially in Alison’s explanation for all of her liplocks!
Big Brother 4, August 5-6 Live Feed Highlights: Requiem for Dana?, by Sting7: On the eve of the Live Show, Dana seems to have accepted that she is going home, though Jun isn't so sure. Jack, Erika, and Nathan realize how crucial winning HOH is for them, but what deal has Alison made with the Dark Side?
Big Brother 4, August 5: Dana’s Last Stand, by Paris Cosby: Dana knows she’s headed for the chopping block, but maybe if she can win the Veto or just wine and bitch and moan to everybody, she’ll find some way to pull it out. At least that appears to be her “strategy.”
Big Brother 4, August 4-5 Live Feed Highlights: Dana, Dana, Dana, by Paris Cosby: It’s all about Dana, as usual. Dana wants to know about the vote, Dana says this, Dana does that. Sure, the others are in the house and they’re making their own strategies, but somehow, it always seems to come back to her.
Big Brother 4, August 1-3 Live Feed Highlights: New Alliances?, by Paris Cosby, with David Bloomberg: Over the weekend in the Big Brother house, Dana has been campaigning to stay while one alliance is trying to bring a member of the other over to their side. Meanwhile, Jee has a religious ritual and Alison does some rationalizing.
Big Brother 4, August 1: An Eye for an Eye, a Pot for a Kettle, by Brian James: Color-coordinated stuffed animals! Ego and power trips! Waterworks! Weight gain! Nicotine addiction! Bible study! Vengeance vows! Blatant hypocrisy! If we were to say it was just a gay ol’ time in the Big Brother house, would any of the HouseGuests have a problem with that?
Big Brother 4, July 31-August 1 Live Feed Highlights: Power of Veto!, by Paris Cosby: Most of the members of Alison’s alliance are not thrilled by her choice of nominees, but the opposing alliance is – how odd. Of course, the winner of the Power of Veto could change everything. Who wins it this week?
Big Brother 4: Why David Lost, by David Bloomberg: Almost everybody in the house thought that David was a great guy. He was funny – perhaps insane at times – and raised spirits in a place with little entertainment. But rather than keep him around, he was put on the block to replace Alison and promptly voted off. What happened? Why did David lose?
Big Brother 4: Turn Off the Faucets!, by Tracy Simon: “Cry me a river” may not be just a phrase with this season’s group of HouseGuests. Is it time to say no more tears - enough is enough?
Big Brother 4, July 30-31 Live Feed Highlights: Alison’s Nominations and Food Competition, by Paris Cosby, with David Bloomberg: Picking up where the live show ended, with Alison as HOH, the scheming immediately starts. It seems obvious that Alison would want to put up Dana, but this show always provides us with evidence that what’s obvious to us isn’t obvious to the HouseGuests. So who does Alison nominate, and who has to eat PB&J for a week?
Big Brother 4, July 30: When Emotions Attack!, by David Bloomberg: It seems that just about everybody is accusing just about everybody else of playing the game emotionally rather than rationally. The only one exempt from this charge is Jack. Does that mean they’ll give him the boot, or will it be Dave instead? And who will win the next Head of Household competition?
Big Brother 4, July 29: One Day at a Time, Sweet Jesus, by C. Brian Devinney: The HouseGuests simply refuse to listen to Brian. He told them to take one day at a time, rather than trying to plan for weeks ahead. But there they go, acting as if the game is in the palms of their hands (the problem is that they each have different palms!). As a good example, what happens if somebody who actually likes one of the nominees gets the Veto? And what if they use it?!
Big Brother 4, July 29 Live Feed Highlights: Is the Vote Decided?, by Sting7: Today is the day the HouseGuests vote (although we don’t find out about it until the live show). Decisions are being made. Who will stay? Who will go? Will the one who is going know about it ahead of time this week? And who does Dana think is dirty, nasty, and smelly?
Big Brother 4, July 25: Better Late than Never, by C. Brian Devinney: Dana is the new Head of Household, thwarting the plans of… well, over half the house. She and Justin grow closer, concerning the remnants of the Original Eight. Which faction will loose cannon Dana side with when she makes her nominations?
Big Brother 4, July 28 Live Feed Highlights, Part 2: Around and Around They Go, by Sting7: The nominees – and their spokespeople – continue to lobby Dana and her stooges to keep them around. But a lot more goes on behind their backs than to their faces. Around they go, where they stop, nobody knows.
Big Brother 4, July 28 Live Feed Highlights: The Last Gasp, by Sting7: The nominees are fighting for survival. It seems obvious who will go, but what if that person makes a deal with the Devil? Can the vote be turned around? Or is there just too much plotting going on?
Big Brother 4, July 27 Live Feed Highlights: Veto Decision Rocks the House, by Sting7: It’s time for the big Veto decision. The person who holds veto power this week has been going back and forth – but nobody really knows what will happen until the actual meeting takes place. The decision has repercussions that reverberate throughout the house.
Big Brother 4, July 26 Live Feed Highlights: Alcohol and Strategy Don’t Mix, by Sting7 and David Bloomberg: The HouseGuests have a special luxury competition, and then they get to drink lots and lots of alcohol. This fuels all sorts of activity, including an attempted dunking of a passed-out HouseGuest, various and sundry sexually-charged activities, and way too much chattering about strategy.
Big Brother 4, July 25 Live Feed Highlights: Veto Competition May Change Everything, by Sting7, with David Bloomberg: It’s time for the Veto competition. Will the exes or the original 7 win it? Will somebody be saved or will the track record of leaving nominations alone continue? Why did Dana side with the exes? Catch up on the highlights as the HouseGuests scheme and plot their way through another day.
Big Brother 4, July 24 Live Feed Highlights: Dana’s Reign – Where’s the Booze?, by Sting7, with David Bloomberg: After the live show, Dana starts her reign as Head of Household and Crime, Jee laments his fate, and the Exes try to lay low as the shockwaves finally stop. Both alliances try to convince Dana that they are on her side – who does she believe when she makes her nominations? And who "pulled a Dave" with Michelle?
Big Brother 4, July 23: The Best Laid Plans of Morons…, by David Bloomberg: We all know about the best laid plans of mice and men – but what about morons? Well, they end up going astray even worse.
