SPOILER ALERT!! At bb8dish, we cover the live feeds. Much of what we write could be considered a spoiler for those who only watch the broadcast on CBS. Now, we don't understand why anyone would choose to do that, since it's like forming an opinion based on 1/10,000th of the information, and they could at least try the feeds for free, but what do we know?!

Rampant Unchecked Paranoia and Power
in the Big Brother 8 HoH

It's time to do a little assessment. Things have changed pretty drastically in the house since Evel Dick took over, and I'm sad to say, not for the better. At the outset, it looked as though ED (Evel Dick) was going to be able to avoid the most common pitfalls of the novice HoH: rampant unchecked paranoia partnered with some serious power tripping. Instead, he's fallen harder than any I've seen before.


What could and should have been a very happy-go-lucky week with one true goal in everyone's mind (getting rid of Kail) has been completely turned on it's head. Instead of harmony, we have new doubts lurking at every corner. Perhaps by necessity. Perhaps not.

Frankly, I wish Dick had stuck with his original plan to "not have any meetings, not hole up in the HoH, and just have a real easy relaxed week." Personally, I think his plan to oust Mike over Kail is ludicrous. Mike may appear powerful, but his abilities pale in comparison to Kail's.

There is, however, one shining hope: Dissent. So far no HoH this season has had the HG of their choice evicted. Perhaps Dick will have the same fate. He may have given up his drive to oust Kail, but already there are murmurs of dissent from the understandably not so adoring serfs.

Specifically, Dustin and Amber, both of whom Dick considers allies, and both of whom Dick has badgered to the point of alienation. These 2 could actually be the most dangerous players in the game... in terms of playing all sides and flying low under the radar in most instances. Anyhow, last night around 7:30pm BBT, Dustin and Amber began to conspire to vote out Kail and just not tell Dick. I'm really hoping they start a trend.

It's also worthwhile to mention Nick, who even while the MRA was intact, always had Dick's back. Since the dissolution, Dick doesn't trust Nick at all, and Nick can feel it. Hopefully that's one more solid vote for Kail's eviction. Nick knows far better than most how much more powerful she is than Mike, and how completely vengeful her next nominations would be: almost assuredly Nick and Zach, for treason against the MRA.

One last thing... I still love Dick. I'm just not thrilled with his behavior this week.

What's your take?

I'm in complete agreement. This Kail's-gonna-be-an-emotional-wreck thing is going to blow up right in Dick's face. I hope AmERICa's player's smart enough to pick up on our hints and campaign against Kail. Who's to say the trend won't continue where the most under-threat player (wk 1 to 2- jen, wk 2 to 3-dick, wk 3 to 4-kail/mike?)gets HoH?

Dick, Amber and Dustin have been my favorites since day one so I really hope they can work together, at least this early in the game.........but Dick really should have stuck with getting Kail out, it could come back to bite him in the ass big time.

Dustin & Amber are sick of Dick's attitude, so they are going to vote for Kail to go, and not admit it, and make Dick think it was Nick and Zach!

Eric is a wild card in voting, it depends on what impression the TV audience is given tonight. Right now, they are thinking to vote Kail OUT, so Eric would do the same. That is three. Jen could also vote her out to get a little better standing in the house. That's four.

In theory, Dick could end up getting the shaft, Mike lucky, Kail out because of them!

Dustin and Amber definately have an alliance it looks like now, and I believe the are more powerful than the realize.

monyc.. excellent point about the most under-threat player. oooh boy.

kriss.. yup, me too, but it's not lookin real good right now.

extremely well said, doug...

so basically, folks, it's up to us.

given the option, we have to tell eric to go against dick and vote kail out. (unless of course we already have with that last america's player vote)

I'm confused. Did I miss something? On Saturday's show the America's choice question was who should Eric push for nomination. I am assuming from your reports from the recent feeds that we picked Kail, but I thought I saw in an earlier post you said America must have chose Jen. Which are you predicting? Was there another question I missed? Is it true that Eric has to get them nominated and actually evicted to get credit? If he tries and the HOH doesn't put them up, does he still get credit? I guess my main question is: for nominations and votes for eviction, does the person we pick actually have to be evicted for Eric to get credit?

And another thing, Mike's pretty isolated which makes him less of a threat. He is cool, calm, and unfrazzled but he's also anti-social and isolated. He's too stubborn to try and fit in (a la Nick and Zach) and if Kail's out of the picture then he's got even less power. Dick think he's removing a planet from the house solar system but by evicting Mike he'll only be removing a moon.

anonymous: on thursday's show they asked us to vote for who we wanted eric to get nominated. we do not know for certain (and wont until tonight) who was actually chosen. we're thinking it was likely kail. it's hard to keep track - cbs keeps changing the rules with each new task and making it harder for him to accomplish the assigments...

a very attractive moon most of the women in america would be quite pleased to behold, but a moon nonetheless.

great point, mo.

We can only hope the HGs vote out who THEY want out. Kail needs to go. I have to say, I'm sorry about that, too. I really thought I was going to like her at the beginning of the season. My, how things change!

Thanks Carolyn. AWESOME site btw.


PS: Just a heads up, for the last couple of episodes, folks have been congregating at the chat during and after the CBS BB episodes to dish, discuss, and on occasion diss (but all in good fun of course =) all things BB.

Seffie - thank you. i was hoping to like her too... ah well... can't always get what we want (like laura aka popples in the house, for example), but this year we can help get rid of what we don't want.

Gotta say, I'm really LOVING that aspect...

Mo - Thank you!! :)

i agree! i love dick but i don't like this whole plan to evict mike.. kail is the real threat. this is the perfect week to see her go and i would hate to see dick pass this moment up.

im affraid that america is going to tell eric to vote kail out and he end up being the only one that voted for kail.
i do agree that what Dick is doing is not smart play. this might just screw eric in the end.

anonymous - so far, dustin and amber have said they're voting kail out too... plus, eric doesn't have to fess up. ;)

Aw, fee pity's sake! Amber!?

Second only to Dick, Sad Sobby Sally is my most hated person in the house! Why the bejeezers Dustin is hooked up with her is beyond me. I view the seemingly cool person/hateful idiot pairing similar to the hideous Yvette/Maggie matchup of Season 6.

Wake up Dustin! Why doesn't he team up with someone cool like Eric?

i live with the hope that some day cliff will say something nice.

I disagree. I love Dick's move. Kail will be a wreck and no one will ever take her side besides Jen for the rest of the game. She can be picked off at any time. Taking out Mike this week is a stroke of genius on Dick's part. Not everyone would be after Mike next week but they would be after Kail (and Zach and Jen.)

So I for one applaud Dick's decision to flip the script.

Cheers... I think you have done a great job with reporting all the things that I missed this weekend. It makes it so much easier to pick up from where I left off.

Now, Dick is really being a dick. I almost feel sorry for Kail.

When I watch the feeds Mike is almost always invisible so I'm feeling bad if he really goes up.

It has been very hectic and hard(this week)to keep up with unless I keep the feeds running in the background so I can hear whats going on. Things are changing by the minute as Dicks mean side comes out.

I like Dick but maybe this is why Dani is estranged from him. I just caught her talking to Amber about her father and the HOH has gone to his head.

Jameka I think is really my favourite as far as being laid back and playing the game smoothly. "It's not over till Julie says it is" says Jameka (all weekend long)

My hopes are that Jameka gets the next HOH and I think HG and America will see how the game chenges... once again!

As the person said above. Dick has really just became a jerk since he won HOH. Yeah Kail did him wrong but come on it's a GAME! Sooner or later they all will be doing that. And Kail wasn't the only one campaigning against Dick. Amber even offered to put herself on the block so he'd go home. And I remember Jessica trying to help out too! They are just trying to make Kail look like the bad one. Kail isn't my favorite but I really do feel bad how she is being treated. Yes I totally understand that he calls her out on what she did but ONCE is enough! And quit with badmouthing Carol. It is getting very annoying.

In my world I'd be more than happy to see Zach or Nick. Nick is annoying and sleeeezy.

I hope the Dick we all loved last week will be back next week when he's not HOH!
