It's a battle of the wits when four ex-Survivor contestants visit the Big Brother 2 house. Find out what went on as The Manly Man watched it all on the live webcams!
In an effort to boost ratings (or to stop Nicole from totally and entirely losing her mind), Big Brother brought in four past Survivor contestants.
From Survivor 1 - Susan Hawk and Gervase Peterson.
From Survivor 2 - Alicia Calaway and Jeff Varner.
These four were such a pleasure because the whole house brightened up, everyone was laughing and smiling, joking with each other, the Survivor clan planned on messing with everyone's minds, and even Nicole often smiled happily between her constantly spewing of the F-word.
But here's the purpose of this article: There were many things, little subtle things, some would even call them SCOOPS, that were learned while listening in on their conversations. I'm going to detail them here by providing a full recap of the live feeds of the entire visit. Surely the babes are swooning.
As a result of an America's Choice call-in vote, their back yard was transformed into a winter wonderland. For literally hours, the HGs heard something huge, something very loud on top of the house and in the backyard (probably the snow making machines – or maybe Santa's reindeer, but this is uncomfirmed). They had no idea what it was, but were oh-so excited and really looking forward to something BIG. Well, MOST of the HGs were. One of them (Nicole), I'm not sure which one (Nicole), was just itching to find something to complain about.
Finally, the HGs were allowed to see what the commotion was all about. (Here's EXACTLY what happened. This is not some “computer geeks F'd up sh*t” as Nicole has so often said since she played footsies with Will's penis and her husband heard about it on the internet. If these live feed posts make someone look bad, then the only person responsible or this is that person. Also note: In all of the Live Feeds, they mostly use the HGs initials so it's faster to type. All Live Feed posts will be in Red.)
BB made M announce the tape twice for the cameras. (BB=Big Brother, M=Monica. Try to keep up.) They're headed out now! They are SCREAMING!!!! YELLING!!!!! They are SO HAPPY!! M is SCREAMING - OH MY GOD! THEY TRANSFORMED OUR BACKYARD INTO CHRISTMAS!!!
There is a big bear ... There is snow. The bear is real, huge, stuffed. It even smells, as the HGs called it, “Dank.”
W: This is unbelievable ...
There are pine trees, real snow. They're walking in the snow, talking about how amazing it is.
N: Yeah, but there's a poor f'ing dead bear in our backyard ...
(other HGs protest)
N: Sorry, but have some f'ing respect about how I feel about animals! M: So uh - what's our luxury? (W laughs)
They are in shorts but walking through the snow - it looks funny. Nobody's playing in it yet, though.
N: It's really, really pretty, but I really hate the snow. M: We've gotta build us a SNOWMAN!!! N: This IS nice I mean, how crazy looking is this?
W a moment later: Oh, look at all these little dead penguins - that's pretty sad, isn't it? N: (sarcastic) Yeah W, thanks a lot W: THIS one looks like he was sick ...
The HGs played in this miracle of snow in Los Angeles for AT LEAST 20 minutes! I'm serious! They so much loved this. They just couldn't get enough. (Not.) It seemed like they walked outside, looked at it, then went back inside to be bored again. M and W built a snowman, about 3 feet high, with a tiny head. Later M dressed it up like a gangster. There were no snowball fights, no snow sculptures. It was really sad. Big Brother really went all out to transform their backyard and they essentially ignored it. Later, when the Survivor people showed up, they so much complained about how boring it is to be in this house.
I say people are as bored as they are boring.
So anyway, later that same day, the HGs heard a doorbell. At first they had no idea what that sound was. They've not had visitors for 64 days. Several rings later they figured it out and in the distance we were able to hear screams of joy and surprise.
In the distance? Yes, because the producers of CBS suck. Most anytime something juicy happens on the live feeds - the luxury challenges, the food challenges, the nominations, any discussions between BB and the HGs, and every time a banner flies overhead the producers cut to the Front of the House (FOTH). Every time. And then any time a HG discusses the banner it's FOTH and that disgusting cheezy song.
I just don't get it. No one is re-broadcasting the live feeds to millions of people. Yes, there exists live feed continual updates, but the percentage of people who read those are tiny compared to the actual viewing audience. So, please stop worrying about lowering your precious ratings and let the live feeds create a buzz about the upcoming shows.
Can you see how much I'm complaining? I've been listening to the live feeds. Anyone listening to the live feeds will agree that one cannot avoid hearing Nicole CONSTANTLY complain about something. Doubt me? I just heard this exchange:
Monica and Will were reminiscing to the Survivor guests about all the fun they've had, describing many of the fun things that's happened in the house. Monica said, “We had some great times. We can't never forget those times.” Nicole: Yes we can. Don't F'ing remind me.
It's like this all the time. It's weird. How can someone constantly see only the negative sides to everything?
I'm writing an article about a similar topic, actually. Does the Big Brother House Cause Insanity? My conclusion: No. But the Nominations DO! We've seen some wacky crap happen after people are nominated.
Okay, I got distracted (won't be the last time). After the doorbell, there was screaming and shouting with glee. And then we had the pleasure of hearing all these exciting somethings from outside of the house as this all took place INSIDE. The live feeds then showed either the back door or the floor of the painted Blue Room for the next 5-10 minutes. But then everyone finally came outside to see the Winter Wonderland and I soon heard Nicole say this to Jeff:
N: Oh my god! I watched every episode of Survivor ever! Your name is Jim. J: Jeff.
Hee hee. From this point, we soon learn just how much certain former Survivors do NOT like certain HGs. (Indeed, this was hinted at in Tuesday’s episode.
Now we get to the juicy part. From listening to the Live Feeds, I learned a few tidbits of inside information. For example, Jeff was trying to get the HGs to open up and talk about what it's like to live in here for so long.
Jeff said, "I can't believe you don't know anything about what's going on in the world right now. I mean, no one has snuck anything to you...?"
And he said this like it was a normal thing for the Survivor contestants to be secretly given things by the cameramen. I wonder if this might give credence to the many rumors that the Survivor contestants often smoked marijuana with the cameramen. And Will seems to know about this (or just likes to smoke weed). He asked this.
W: I have a question. Please tell me someone snuck in some weed
Throughout their entire visit, Jeff continually tried to push Hardy and Nicole's buttons. And he did it so subtly with that innocent smile, it was just fun to watch.
J to N: are you a clean freak? Everyone: OOOOOhhhh!!!
Jeff to Will: What do you do that annoys her? Nicole: Breathes.
(Did you catch that? Nicole just insulted Will. If you missed it, don't worry. You'll have many, many, MANY opportunities to hear Will insulted during the Survivor visit. Hardy and Nicole CONSTANTLY insulted Will. There was hardly a conversation when they didn't go off on how Will can't be trusted, how he's evil, how he stabbed them in the back. Never once did they say, “We continually told everyone that we plan to have US, Hardy and Nicole, as the final two. And we fully expected everyone else in the house to just go along with our plan and lose out on $500,000 even if they had an opportunity to be in the finals.”
I called Mike and Shannon two of the biggest sore losers. They still are, but Nicole and Hardy are quite possibly worse. At least Mike and Shannon got over it.
It became quite clear very soon that the Survivor guests do not at all like Hardy and Nicole, especially Nicole. They tolerated her constant vulgarity and her repeatedly insulting Will only because they had to. But as you'll see, they also got their digs in.
Jeff talking to Monica, trying to get a scoop for his Live broadcasts from Boogie's bar:
J: Who's the most annoying person left in the house? M: Choose another word. J: Irritating... M: Who changes the mood in the house?? Nicole! J: Really?? She seems nice.... M: She's just happy to see people right now...
While everyone was sitting around outside, Gervase asked this question:
G: So what do you guys do for fun around here? H: This is it! M: Play backgammon. Smoke cigarettes. Eat. Smoke cigarettes, play backgammon. Eat. Smoke cigarettes. (She continued saying this as other people chimed in.) W: We also spend half the day looking up into the sky for banners.
J: What do they say? W: It's almost always mean. Every other one is like KILL WILL.COM.
(Until very late at night, none of the HGs had a clue that Jeff knows quite a bit about what's happening in the BB house and that he actually hosts a live Big Brother show on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Boogie's bar, Belly. He and all the other Survivor guests acted like they knew nothing at all. When they finally told them, Nicole, SURPRISE! Got really pissed. “You've been lying to us all this time about knowing nothing?”)
Nicole asked if Big Brother shows all the "cooking I do in this fucking house?" The Survivors acted like they didn't know. Nicole says, “F*CK!”
Nicole was showing people her pictures of her husband. Jeff, again acting like he has no clue as to what's going on, asks this question just to drive Nicole crazy.
J: What does he think of you being here? N: Oh, that's not really a good subject right now.
The conversations were rapid-fire topic changes.
W to A: Are you the one who's like this? (wags finger) A: Yes, I'm the famous finger waver.
Nicole told Alicia that she hated her in Survivor because, “You almost busted the crap out of Kimmi because she's a vegetarian.”
Alicia then went into detail about the whole Kimmi/chicken incident, providing things I haven't heard before. Read about this and much more as this article continues on the Manly Thoughts website.
