BB8 Eric is Making a Concerted Effort to Stay

After all that (see previous posts), lesser men would have cowered away in defeat. Eric is seriously making a go at it. First Stop: Daniele, who has no vote, but does have her father's ear. I have to assume that's why he's pitching her first... unless it's just as a sounding board to get his pitch straight in his own mind.

video captured by:

Second stop: Jessica

5:00pm BBT
Eric, Jessica
Written by: Doug

Jessica is in HoH with Eric. He's telling her that he has always been true with what he's done and said to her. He's sniffling. He says he was always himself with her, and is crushed that his personal character is being destroyed and that he cares what she thinks.

He continues on saying he was framed, and that he never lied to her. The conversation goes on and Eric plays the pity card, as well as the almost crying card on Jess. He repeats word for word the same speech he made earlier for Daniele.

Jessica then does something that Daniele did not do. She tells him that she still is going to vote for him, that Jameka is, and that Amber is because she swore on her daughter’s life.

Eric realizes he only needs one vote, does an abrupt turnaround, changes his tone, stops sniffling, and starts talking game. He also subtly tells Jessica at one point that he has things that he told her how she feels about other people that he could hold over her head..

Jess has a resigned tone to her voice, but she keeps talking about how he could talk to Jen and try Zack even though he probably wouldn’t get his vote. It’s hard to tell what Jess is thinking.. She is giving Eric the information he is looking for, but without enthusiasm.

Following Jess' conversation with Eric, she goes down to talk to Dustin & Amber, in tears.

Next up:
Jameka... turn on the feeds!! Then Jen - whom Eric blows off in very short order.
Then on to Dustin... He's in the Hammock with Dustin now, 7:35pm BBT, and has been for the past 40 minutes or so. Frankly, it seems Dustin is going to flop and vote to keep Eric.

Only time will tell. Following Dustin's uncomfortably long hammock talk with Eric, which occurred while all of the HGs were on outdoor lockdown, Amber voiced her concerns, and what it all boiled down to for her:

Appx. 8:05pm BBT
Amber: If Eric stays this week, then I'm done with the group.
Dustin: Amber, I would never lie to you.
    ***Amber... now would be a terrific time to think about never again swearing on your child's life... or your equally beloved dog's.

Seriously, if he pulls this off he would be the anti-Marcellas and Dani would the only one responsible. I mean she gave him her HOH room for goodness sake.

Wow. That kid's got ... moxie?

Considering at this point that no one (or virtually no one) has their hands clean at this stage, I'm willing to allow myself to hope he pulls this off.

Or not.

As I said before, I'm new to BB and I need to know if this is normal....

I find myself getting so frustrated (I get that way too Dani) that I want to jump through the tv and computer, bonk them all on the heads yelling "Hey STUPID, she's lying, he's lying!!!! Why,oh,why are you all believing all this crap being spewed?!"

And everyday I swear to myself (not on anyone's life mind you) today will be the day I cut the strings and yet I come here to get my daily BB fix.

Am I normal or do I need help?

Oh and didnt she tell Eric her secret in the Big Brother house? So the world knew before Eric even opened his mouth!

This is seriously driving me nuts. One minute I'm telling people that there's no hope, the next; he surprises me. He has total courage to press on even after what happened earlier.

Dani's not as smart as I thought she was (letting Eric use her HOH room). Watch Eric get those votes swinging back his way.

Does anyone in America care if Amber breaks her promise and votes Eric out? She'll just swear on her child's life again in ten minutes, what's the diff? You can't trust Dustin to do it.

Is Jessica really that gullible to believe everything Eric says?

Can Dick be held in check until the eviction?

Can you believe how easy it is for Eric to lie?

Do you want a liar with no skills to win a veto or HOH competition to win BB8?

Oh, btw -- I heard Amber told him BEFORE the feeds came on, but I still think that's pretty bad -- telling an almost total stranger about something so huge. What did she expect?

luvdacubs, you're not alone. I keep trying to sever ties and not read a thing, but it's just not working!

I was mad at Eric about the choices he made last week, but I take back what I said about wanting him out. *sorry cliff;)* I want Eric to stay and get Dumber kicked out. Damn this bb8 is making me a little Bipolar. LoL

I am really pulling for Eric to stay. He is growing on me, and Amber's racist comments infuriate me! If she was on last season and I heard her say something about Kaysar, I would have to be waiting on her to get out of the house! Look up ignorant and you will see Amber! Anyways, I just want to see Eric stir the pot and get Dick out of the house. Dick is too much with his volatile language! It's overplayed Dick!!!

Hi luv. You are not alone and you are not crazy....we all are...LOL!

Hi everyone.

My name is Melissa and I'm also addicted to BB and this blog!

Sweet addictionnn.....


The crazy ups, downs, twists, turns of BB.

I thought I was going to sleep, so got in bed and 15 min. later had to run and get my computer to check in. It will be my bed buddy tonight.

Cheering for Eric woohoooo and I wish that Jessica would trust him, I think she is the only one he would truely look out for. They too cute.

What is moxie? is it guts? chutzpah? balls?

The videos on the blog are not showing up on my puter (just white where they should be) and you tube must be busy cuz I can't get there either. Are these symptoms just from the world going nutz over the latest drama?

I wanna see those vids. I can only imagine......

Yup, I have officially left my #1 BB Blog to come here now. Dingo is getting very partisian I find when it comes to who (s)he likes and dislikes. It was so sad to listen to Jessica talk to Eric like they had no feelings for each other at all. And I didn't see her cry? What went down there? And yes, as I figured, Dustin is flip flopping again. Yet, I can still seeing him voting Eric. Amber is raging in the kitchen to Jam who is saying "Play smarter, calm down, stop being stupid" (thats not verbatum) but she, like dick, just keeps punching and shooting in all directions; except dick asks questions later... amber is just an emotional non-player now.

Dustin, in reply: "Amber, I would never lie to you."

We'll see. We'll see...

Either Dustin is lying to Amber. He just swore on his mother & brother that he is still voting for Eric to go. Amber said if Eric is still here next week that she is leaving the group. I don't blame her. That her friends backstabbed her.

I just had a small ephiphany whilst brushing my teeth. Aren't we all being collectively condescending when it comes to Jess. Like with Eric's crying we are saying "Whatever, Weasel". When Amber cries and uses it, aren't we saying "Blah Blah Blah"? But when Jess cries to two different sides we are all saying "someone give this girl a hug." Isn't it just as likely that Jess is playing all sides. Infact, isn't she? And in the end, she gets away with it because everyone treats her like shes a precious princess; which is a part she plays so well.

If Eric hadn't run off his mouth and had just been charming all the time we would all be freaking out about how he is getting screwed right now, but now we see his charm is all a facade because he screwed up by not shutting up. Isn't it JUST as likely that Jess is playing the same "BBF Card" with everyone, without the added running of the mouth. Jess, all of sudden, is the most dangerous player in the game, IMHO. Wow.

Of course she could be an airhead... but I doubt it.

I need Eric out of there. I never liked him. Never will. He could've played the game a little better and not rely on what he saw people do on the many shows he has studied.

If this actually works I will be very unhappy.

Jameka or Jen for the win!

Please let all the HG's sleep ALL day until BB makes them wake up to clean, etc. I can't stand anymore flip flopping at this moment.
Better yet, maybe I'll sleep til the show..LOL (I wish!)

FYI it is 4:46 BBT and Dick just said to Dani "Jameka really needs to go, she's f*cking up the game."

WOW, I think so too! Right after Dustin!

At this point in time, I don't care who wins as long as it's not one of those on my long list of Needs to be Evivted: Dustin, Jameka, Amber, Kail - And I think I even have that in order of
