Big Brother 10: Finale Recap

Posted by johnnysweeptheleg After two-plus months in the house, a long summer of Big Brother finally came to a close. They say the game is much tougher than it looks. Jerry walked into the house looking like Ryan Gosling and walked out looking like James Garner. The game puts a man through many changes. The finale begins with a trip to the Jury House as everyone wonders who will be the next to join them. When Jerry walks through the door, the jury members don’t exactly welcome him. They ask Jerry what happened in the house. He says is all […]

Big Brother 10: 9/11 Recap

Posted by johnnysweeptheleg When we last left the remaining houseguests, Keesha had just been evicted and Dan was pretending to be upset with Memphis for doing so. Dan, Memphis, and Jerry were all strapped to the top of a plane and were competing in an endurance competition for the first leg of the final three-part HOH. Dan continues with this faux-anger at the faux-hawked Memphis, and it borderlines as overacting, which scares Memphis. Luckily, this is Jerry we’re talking about — and he isn’t the most observant fella. And obviously not the most balanced individual, either, as he’s the first […]

Big Brother 10: 9/9 Recap

Posted by johnnysweeptheleg Not since Dr. Will have we seen such a calculated style of game play in the BB house, as we’ve seen out of Dan this season. After this week’s nominations, Jerry and Keesha have fallen for the noms, just as Dan hoped. Jerry begins talking to Memphis about overthrowing Dan (as Dan thought he would) and Keesha thanks Dan for honoring their agreement (as Dan thought she would). While everyone else is busy being not busy, Will Dan gets to go to a private island to meet, unbeknownst to the HGs, Michelle. Dan works the charm, and […]

Big Brother 10: 9/7 Recap

Posted by johnnysweeptheleg With only four houseguests remaining in the BB house, the producers realize they need to do something to keep people watching. Having a sumo wrestler, a gorilla, and a female contortionist is a pretty good start. After Dan snags an envelope out from under the sumo wrestler, the HGs learn they will all compete for a luxury competition. The next morning, the final four are woken by a gorilla. Something looks … familiar … about this simian. The gorilla tears off his mask in the DR to reveal that it’s our favorite banished houseguest — Jessie! After […]

Big Brother 10: 9/4 Recap

Posted by johnnysweeptheleg The DVR Gods had other plans for me Tuesday night, so for once, the “Previously on Big Brother” intro was worth watching. Memphis has won the POV and taken Dan off the block, even though he told Jerry he was going to the final two with him and would leave noms as-is. Jerry tells Keesha he thinks Memphis is going with Dan to the end, now. Gee, do ya think?! Nothing gets past you! This causes Keesha to then go to Renny and ask her if she thinks Memphis plans on taking Dan to the end. Let […]

Big Brother 10: 8/28 Show Recap

Posted by johnnysweeptheleg A week’s worth of Big Brother in one night. Also known as the little less conversation, a little more action episode. Julie doesn’t want to hear you talk, houseguests. There will be no foreplay. Get right to the activities! The episode begins with a few flashbacks to the post Veto ceremony, with Ollie throwing his tantrum. Ollie and Michelle believe Dan is a plant. Not to be confused with the Plant Man. Thinking he’s going to drop some huge revelation on the houseguests, Ollie walks outside and begins telling everyone about the three-part deal he made with […]

Big Brother 10: 8/26 Recap

Postedy by johnnysweeptheleg I can’t help but chuckle at Ollie as he struts around the house all week, thinking that he’s running the show. And why shouldn’t he? So far, through 2/3 of the agreement he made with Dan, Dan has lived up to his end of the bargain. There’s no reason for Ollie to think that Dan wouldn’t continue. But Ollie has vowed to unleash hell if he’s double crossed. California law states that you must keep your hell on a leash, as well as picking up after it. I think Ollie’s about to be ticketed, because Dan has […]

Big Brother 10: 8/24 Recap

Posted by johnnysweeptheleg Dan’s decisions during last night’s episode will either get him eliminated on Thursday’s episode (remember, it’s a DOUBLE live eviction!) or will take him all the way to the finals. After hanging for almost four hours, the HOH competition comes down to two people — Ollie and Dan. Ollie doesn’t want to drop, because he knows he’ll be the first to go on the block and go home. Dan doesn’t want to drop because he knows Ollie will be looking for vengeance, since Dan’s decision not to vote to keep April sealed her fate. So Dan does […]
