Big Brother 4, August 8-9 Live Feed Highlights: They Get Sheryl Crow, We Get Laundry!by Sting7 -- 08/11/2003
Big Brother nastily awakes the HouseGuests for the day (it's been an ongoing problem, especially with the Stooges). The Power of Veto (POV) competition is coming and everyone is a bit tense. Robert vocally want to just "get the sh*t over with."
FOTH (Front of the house pictures only on the live feeds) for almost two hours!
Jee says to Robert, "you have to go through another one," which suggests Robert won the POV competition! Nate mopes through his Subway lunch. In peppier talk, Justin slags Alison and her behavior during their relationship. He says he hated taking her to clubs because she was drunk and loud almost immediately. They can't believe she has kissed so many men in the house, and still declares she wants to marry Donny! (I can't believe it either.)
Jun says Jee went away on a ski-trip and came back with a "ho-bag" and that was the end of them. There was also stimulating conversation about how Jee was caught touching himself under his sheet. Jee replies that Justin does it all the time and no one teases him. Justin even drools. (I can relate to that!) Jun, Erika, and Alison talk about the horrible way Nathan is taking being on the block. Alison says everyone has been on the block but Robert and Justin. Erika leaves.
Alison then confesses that since she was angry at Nate, she threw the POV competition, but he doesn't know that. Still, he's angry at her for losing because she was so close to winning POV! Then, Alison has the nerve to say, "it's not like I ASKED him to take me off last week!" (Revisionist history appears to be another of Alison's talents.)
Alison and Nate are alone at last. Nathan asks if she had to choose between a modeling career and Donny which would she choose? She says she would tell Donny she's being paid to be a model and he'd still be her boyfriend. (Um, that's not choosing!) Then they discuss their kiss. They agree it sucked. Nathan says Alison is a "player" and her true colors are coming out. Nate says he saved her with POV purely for strategy. She snaps she knows that. Nate then says she instigated the kiss and she is such a liar. Then he says he didn't know Alison even had a boyfriend, just thought she was dating someone. (Nonsense.) Alison says he had to know about her boyfriend from all the wailing she did from day one when Justin strolled through the kitchen. (Exactly.) Alison scores the knockout when she says, "after meeting you, I know Donny is who I want to be with. I even love his flaws." Nathan actually winces! Later, Alison asks Nathan for a foot massage.
Nate complains to Jack that he's played the game so badly. He should have nominated Justin when was HOH. He should have let Alison fend for herself, and Dave would (probably) still be there. Nate says he can't believe the Stooges think they will be famous when they get out. Alison stumbles out and asks Nate to come to the hot tub. Nate mumbles something about her being "drunk again." Nate does get in the hot tub, as do all the others except Jun and Robert apparently. Alison spends her drunken time with mean-spirited zinging at Nate. When he's had enough he pinches her somewhere!
Nate says he heard Jee once questioned his sexuality. Jee babbles a non-answer and leaves. Nate says he can't see how anyone could think he was gay! Nate adds at this point, he's down to a Hail Mary. Jack refers back to the food competition on Friday’s show and mentions that all kids should get to see their fathers as strawberries! (Heh!) Nate is sure he is history. He and Jack run a mock Julie Chen interview:
Jack (as Julie): So how was it being on the block?
The Stooges featuring Jun continue reveling in "the numbers." They talk about how Alison keeps saying, "trust me, trust me." They don't. At all. Jun has started working out, Robert says the cameras were on her a lot during, he could hear them moving. Jun warns Jee not to be seduced by Alison. Robert says Nate makes him sick, and he can't wait for him to be gone. (Sounds bad for POV possibilities!)
Another rough wake up from Big Brother. Jun is making breakfast, but is told a Luxury Competition is in 30 minutes! She has to hustle! Jee is embarrassed by the skimpy swimsuit he has to wear! Nate teases him that he can see Jee's "package!" (Flashback: I don't why anyone would think I'm gay!)
The Luxury Competition is called "Fluff and Foam." In essence, the HouseGuests have to strip out of their bathing suits to reveal a letter under a patch on the inside of their suits. They have to use the letters to decipher a word, which describes what they won. And, they win... laundry service for a week! Erika gulps, "I stripped for laundry?"
Erika is not kidding. She tells Alison she already did a load this morning, so she feels ripped off. And when she was sequestered, the laundry service ruined some of her clothes! Alison takes this moment to be indignant herself, wondering who saw her breasts. Justin definitely, but he'd seen them before, big deal.
She carries her complaints to Nate, who says he wasn't trying to look at her breasts. Nate says he doesn't ever plan to wear that bathing suit again (BB says the HouseGuests can keep them). Alison says she can't believe Nate saw her breasts (giggle giggle), Nate says everyone did. Alison says, “great.”
Jack seems to have thoroughly enjoyed the competition! Erika and Alison look concerned, Erika says her boyfriend will be upset. Jack says he was happy! He got a shot of Jun's butt (and he is an ass man), but he was too mesmerized by Erika to really remember he was naked himself or to even see the word he was deciphering! Erika says, "last year they got Sheryl Crow, this year they get laundry!" She also wonders aloud if the audience is enjoying the show. She doesn't think people want to see exes, they want strangers. She wonders if this is a ploy for ratings. [Editor’s Note: Ya think?!]
Later, Erika says she's still pissed. Nate says he was planning on doing laundry today, so now he has nothing. Suddenly, he pounces on Alison and makes her promise not to say mean things about him again. She shrieks that he's hurting her, then demands a massage. Erika says the laundry service broke a zipper on one of her dresses, Nate says they ruined an $80 shirt. Alison mumbles he's about to have plenty of time to replace it. Nate tells her (feebly) to shut-up, he might stay.
Nate tells Ali that every time he talks to Robert, Robert thinks he's going to make a pitch. Later Ali leads Jun in a brutal set of ab exercises. Erika looks in the window and says, "oh, they're doing abs! Speaking of abs, I want ice cream!" (Heh!) The Stooges realize that if it gets down to three or four, they will have to nominate each other! (Doh!)
Jun is encouraging Robert to FOCUS on winning HOH. They don't want Jack to have it. Jun laughs that Alison is playing both sides and everyone knows she is playing both sides, yet she continues. Alison is angry that Nathan has taken to making "throat slicing" motions with his finger and thinks it's funny. Erika has taken to doing Lisa Donahue impressions with lots of hair-flicking. (Hysterical.) Jack and Erika agree that it's bogus that Danielle didn't win last season. Nate says he thought Tonya was beautiful, and he doesn't mind a woman being two or three years older than him. Jack snorts that Tonya was a LOT older than that!
Talk turns to politics. Erika considers herself liberal due to her views on women's issues. But, Nate seems staunchly Republican and very conservative. Jack says he is liberal with women's issues (he doesn't want anyone telling his daughters what they can and cannot do with their bodies), but since 9/11 he is a big fan of G-Dub. Then comes a pouting Alison. It appears that in the Diary Room, the producers told Justin of all the things Alison told the Stooges and Jun about their dating days! Jack says them fighting will be great for television. Terrific, Alison sighs. Nate says he wishes his ex would show up and they could fight for awhile. Jack says Nate should run for office, he'd even work on his campaign. Nate says Erika can be his running mate. Erika says, "a Republican woman? That's an oxymoron!"
