Overnight Report

The Set-Up
It's been rather an eventful evening in the Big Brother 8 House. Before the Overnight Report Officially begins, at 11pm BBT, we need to do a little backtracking. Just a bit - to 8pm BBT on Wednesday night, when Dustin Swore to Amber, on this Mother and his Brother's Lives, that Eric would be evicted on Thursday...
Captured by: xx2000xx

With all the swearing on family members that goes on between these two, I'm just that much happier to not be related to either of them.

The Leg-Work
As the evening progressed, so did Eric's goodwill farewell tour through the house guests, purely in an effort to not leave the house being thought of as a monster, of course. Around 11pm BBT, he moved in to Zach, and did his best to appeal to Zach on a strategic level. The conversation could have ended when Eric confirmed to Zach that he caused Nick's eviction, cause that's when Zach stopped listening in earnest, as if Zach would have gone against Dick in the first place.

Following Zach/Eric, Zach invited Kail to come talk to him. She was awkward, at best, and Zach did most of the talking, letting her know that even with all that's happened, he never went against the original alliance. He voted for both Mike and Nick to stay, and this week she's got his vote. It's a promise, and unlike most, Zach's promise is actually worth something.

You know what... I can't prolong this:

The Outcome:

Eric's Farewell Tour was Successful

Eric said all the right things to enough of the right people, and as of bedtime, not only is Jess firmly back in his camp, so is Jameka, and so is Mr 4th Vote, Dustin - Mom and Brother be damned. Dustin's even manipulated Amber back over the fence and into Eric's camp.

1:38am BBT
Dustin, Amber

Dustin: Talk to him. He does love you.
Amber: (agrees to hear him out)
Dustin: You may not know it now, but this is the best thing...
Jameka: (confirms)
Dustin: It's a numbers game, and Eric knows that.
Amber: I'm afraid he'll put me up!
Dustin: Eric wouldn't do that. He has no reason to, and he would be out if he did. Amber: Well... whatever. Jen told me that Eric said he doesn't want to be sitting next to me or Jameka in the final two.
Dustin: Eric knows that when it comes down to the 5 of us he is the first one out. We need to keep him here... at least a minimum of 3 weeks, and then we can vote him out, cuz we won't need him anymore. This is our best move.
Amber: I need to think. It's a lot. You can vote however you want.
Dustin: No. You can't act like that. We're together in this.
    ***I think I just spit up a little in my mouth.
Amber: With Eric gone, the group can get back together.
Dustin: No. The lines are drawn. We need Eric now. Kail is no use. She can't win HoH's.
Amber: I don't know what to tell you.
Dustin: Whatever happens, I need to know that you feel comfortable.
Amber: I need to think.

They hug, and he whispers...

Dustin: (Keeping Eric) is the best thing for you and me.

They move inside, and Jameka joins the effort to convince Amber. It doesn't take more than another minute before Amber says to Dustin...

Amber: I don't want you to be the only guy in the group. You'll be stuck with all girls if we vote Eric out. That would be kinda bad. Let's be honest: guys are better competitors for the most part. Guys are smarter and stronger... not just in here, but in terms of a lot of things.
    ***I have to assume this logic comes from the same place that tells her it's ok to hate the Jews.
By 1:45am BBT, Amber & Dustin have sealed the new deal to go back on their agreement with Dick and Dani with a kiss and an I love you, and Amber has officially flipped back to keeping Eric.

By 1:48am BBT, Dustin is outside, making small-talk with Dick, Dani and Kail.

Manipulating Amber is always an easy task, but it ought to have been more difficult given the situation.

Dick is blissfully unaware, as is Dani.

I, on the other hand, am ill, but not surprised. Eric worked some serious magic last night, and I have to give him all the credit it the world for staying in the game against seemingly insurmountable odds... If he stays, he deserves it.

My only hope is that Amber will get her walking papers today... CBS has surely suffered enough humiliation by now.

What makes me ill is Dustin. That and this incessant ringing in my ear: Joe was right, Joe was right, Joe was right. If Dustin was a master manipulator, I'd give him credit for it... But he's not - he's just surrounded himself with very easy targets. I suppose there's some credit due there, but ever so little.

Here's the kicker of the night: the clip of Dustin & Jessica, titled "I'm so Happy!"
Captured by teslad

Well, I'm glad somebody's happy.

As of 5am BBT, Dick and Dani are up and chatting nicely in the backyard. They have no clue what's about to happen. Here they are discussing the personal aspect of the game, relative to Eric, Dani and Nick.
Captured by BBFanz

At 5:15am, they have a little disagreement, and Dani gets up and goes to bed. Dick's now alone, doing chores.

5:27am BBT - Sleepers on all feeds.

Oh... say it isn't so! As much as I liked the idea of America's Player... it just doesn't seem like it really worked for us. Afterall.. if it did- Nick would STILL be in the house! For me it's a toss up between Kail and Eric but I don't want Dick and Dani to be outnumbered! AHHHHHHHHH!!!

5:44 AM  
Blogger Jackie said...

What I always find so amusing by the HGs or rather NH/LNC is they all say that no way would they vote for D&D at the end but, yet no one wants to take them to the end which if they believed what they said, would guarantee them the win so, why so hard to get rid of them. And paleeese it's not about Dick's mouth because at this point they have to live with it one way or the other.

After this all I have to say about the actions of the past few days is... I GIVE UP!

Thanks Carolyn for always keepign us in the know!

I can't believe Dustin actually used a word like solidarity without screwing up the pronunciation. Most of the conversations he has make me cringe. If you cannot pronounce words bigger than tree or dog don't use them. They all suck for changing their mind.

6:22 AM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

LOL...can anyone say "Too good to be true?"

I don't think it was a changing of the minds. I think that the nerd herd has just postponed Eric's demise. From their gameview, it would be beneficial to keep Eric in for another week so they can go after dick or dani. However for us "Evel" fans, let's just keep our fingers crossed during the HoH comp. It should be an interresting one tonight.

I'm kinda hoping Zach or Jen wins it tonight just so we won't have to endure ANOTHER week of the same stupid nominees. I don't care who goes up! I wanna see some heads spinnin'!

Well, well, well... amazing what one day will do to change people's minds. Basically by not voting Eric out this week will split the house in two, with major casualites on both sides. Dare I say, Jen will be going a lot further in the game then expected.

With the LNC going after Dick and Daniele and Dick & Dani going after the LNC, this is not going to be very pretty. If I was Jen, I would just sit back and watch and let the rest of the houseguests eat each other.

My vote is for Jen to win this whole competition at this point. She's the smartest player in there and perhaps the biggest threat that no one seems to really care about getting out of the house, otherwise she would have been evicted ages ago. They seem to backdoor everyone else, why not her?

6:55 AM  
Blogger erin said...

I am so mad. If they were so smart they would keep Kail. She can't compete in the HOH comps for a while and she would put up Dick. I can't stand how Amber and Dustin lie. Amber saying she hasnt lied once and her saying she loves everyone makes me sick. I hate fake people. And her prejudice comments were wrong. I want Dani and Dick to win. But if they don't I might end up wanting Jen. I dont like the nerd herd

OMG what are these folks thinking...oh wait THERE'RE NOT!!! lol But hey at least there's ONE good thing if Eric stays...he still has to do what we say for votes and such and he can't get around that. Soooooo let him stay and we can make his life SO difficult and let's see how he explains it THIS time ;-)

Anonymous Jessica said...


I know a lot of people seem to hate Eric...I haven't followed discussion or posts on it, so I'm not sure why. But I really love Eric. Has he manipulated? Yes. But that's the game. What it crappy what he did to Amber? Yes. I can't even say anything about that.

But I have to say, I still feel bad for Eric. The catalyst that started the whole house turning him into the big bad monster was NOT his fault.

I'm so sick of Dick's intimidation tactics. I loved and appreciated Dick's "strategy" at first. But I'm starting to see why Dani didn't want anything to do with him for so long. Calling people out on lies is one thing. But what he is doing is really just being a bully. He expects Eric to not fight for his "life" in the house, and not talk to people??? And if he does, Dick is going to make his life hell???? That's not even playing the game!

If Eric manages to stay this week, he DESERVES to be there, and win. To go from one of the most beloved housemates, to the most hated, with NO ONE on his side, and NO alliance, and no one to help him...if he survives eviction this week, I think he damn well deserves to be there :)

Oh, please magic unicorns in the sky, let this all end up with Dick and Amber heading out next!

Re: Clip One: What's with Dustin's outfit? He looks like a member of Heaven's Gate. All that's missing are the track shoes!

Re: Clip Two: Dani saying there would be "well, two and a half" men left in the house if Eric leaves?! (Suppressing major curse here.)

It kills me that there are milliseconds where I kinda like Dick, because after seeing every other moment he's on the screen I hate him with the heat of a white hot supernova.

gennie - 100% on the same page with ya.

I'm so trying to stay away from the larger political ramifications of the America's Player fiasco - lack of constituent representation in a country that's so over it - but it's getting harder and harder.

jackie - ditto - buncha stupid heads. ;)

anonymous#1 - you n me both. doing nothing puts their stamp of approval on it.

anonymous #2 - can't agree with ya there. he just took himself from diseased pariah status to least likely to be evicted in 6 short hours... this does not a worst player make. ya may not like him, but ya gotta acknowledge...

evelgirl - sooo... ya wanna be the first official member of my new "i abhor dustin" club? ;)

anonymous#3 - ditto on the zach, jen hoh hopes.. i'd add dick to the list. and nominate dustin and amber pronto... or maybe amber and whoever, and backdoor dustin - just to show him the same courtesy he showed nick. i'm so on the same page with dick here - NO ONE should feel safe. It's time to start throwing rocks at the gallery.

This is great news!! Eric is by far my favorite competitor, despite the off comments he has made; they all have said some pretty nasty things.

Dick is going to go ballistic when he hears a vote of 4 to 3. He won't even wait until Kail leaves... I can't wait... get out the popcorn tonight folks!!!

B.T.W. Amber is the most disgusting character I have ever seen on a reality show... Loved the line last night when she said to Dani that "she would take Nick's bed" and "[Dani] could take Eric's bed" ... all the while shoveling "low fat" ice cream in her mouth... PUKE!!! GO HOME!!!

Everyone - Who's with me? The next time Dustin degrades Daniele by calling her a whore (give it a few minutes) or laughs about making her cry, we all summon our collective energy and will him such awful diarrhea right before the live show, he's too physically drained to compete... Whaddya think?

Carolyn, :: Rasing Hand::: I want into the club please!

Jessica- Eric made a comment earlier in the week that if Kail tried to campaign to stay in the house he'd effin' kill her. Hmmm... sounds like, what's good for the geese is good for the gander. Seems Eric is just getting a taste of his own medicine.elace

erin - as usual, we're on the same page. D&D are faves.. Jen is way up there now too, though she certainly didn't start off that way (kinda how i hated will in the beginning of last season - DUMB)... Hate the Kool-Aid drinkers.. and by that, I mean cult. Really wish Daniele could have somehow heard my wishes last week and nominated Dustin & Amber... ah well.

justbeechy - yeah, it'll be nice to still vote, but i'd much rather D&D have more #s in the house. still, bully for you for seeing the silver lining in this mess!

jessica - i agree.. if eric makes it past this elimination, he has more than proven himself a master BB player.

cliff - re clip 1: well, he is the cult leader, after all. seems fitting he sould wear the costume.
re: clip #2 - anything i say will be insufficient here.

Good God, this game is making my head spin this year. I've never seen so many flip-floppers. Poor Kail, that's who I really feel bad for. Yes, my heart also goes out to Dani and Dick who are in for a hell of a shock - but aw, Kail .. "you're safe, no you aren't, you're safe, no you aren't, you're safe, no you aren't, you're safe .... Oops, you go home" ... that's so mean. Despite her comments at the beginning of the season about "gays" (being a lesbian, it rubbed me the wrong way) .. I truly believe she is a good person - just a little misinformed.


In a way, good for Eric - if he really did pull that off ... crap! The boy is amazing ... I still don't think I'd ever sit down for a drink with the guy (although, i can say ... besides Nick, I don't think there are any houseguests I would sit down with really .. maybe Kail ... I could befriend her and she could realize that if one of her children "chose" ( HA ) a "gay lifestyle" .. it really wouldn't be that bad!)

As for Amber ... SHE is in for a hell of a shock when she gets back out to the real world ...

Do you think CBS is going to talk about the remarks Amber made? I'm thinking they're probably going to have to say something ... as people are saying it was disrespectful of them not to have pulled the livefeeds when she was saying it ... oookaaay ... i've written far too much about nothing in particular. My apologies.

Yeah, that is the question I want to pose to everyone KIM, and to you too carolyn. Arn't there specific rules in the BB Game that says you cannot use language or actions that housemates or the viewing public would find extremely offensive? BB8 in the UK (My GF is Welsh and her family watches it obsessively and calls us in Canada afterward lol) booted a contestant because she used the N-word. Where is the difference? And why the hell is still on the show, walking around and calling him a no-good piece of everything?

Even worse, she has done it on two occations, and attacking two different groups; Jews and Homosexuals. It just doesn't fly for me. I mean, as a fellow non-practicing jew from the east coast... oi vey.

Blogger Carolyn said...

Taylor, i wish I had the answers for you.. I don't... I have to believe they'll address it somehow, but here's a difference - in the UK, people make their voices heard when an HG is offensive like that...

We need to do that too, and in a well-thought out, rationale way... Easy on the caps and exclamation points.. just this is wrong, and as a viewer i'm extremely offended, etc etc... no threats, just facts. anything outlandish will just give someone a good giggle, or put the writer on a watch list...
