A Message From OUR America's Player

  • As with all other posts on bb8dish, we must request that you not copy and paste this elsewhere without written permission. A link is wonderful. Copying and pasting undermines everything we do.

BB8dish is proud to present a Special Message from our resident satirist, our very own America's Player. You've seen him here in the comments section of bb8dish for several weeks now, and we thought it was about time he made the main page... He has some wonderful words of wisdom to impart to us all, and a wonderful explanation of what's to come over the next few days of Big Brother 8. So, without further ado, I present, Our America's Player... as seen in the comments of bb8dish for the past 2 months.
    ***In case the references to satire and having commented here on the blog for several weeks now didn't make it abundantly clear, this is not really from Eric... it's merely written in his voice for your entertainment, while we explain the end game for those who've been asking questions.

 America's Player America, let me state for the record, that I, in fact (and I know this may sound ridiculous) am at peace with my eviction. And although I've left the game earlier than I had hoped, with your help I've earned an additional $40,000 which, quite frankly, puts me in third place.

I'm enjoying my time, as you might surmise, in sequester; however, at this particular time, I am unable to confirm nor deny my exact whereabouts. Just know that I'm still playing for you, America, as I await my instructions from you on who to vote for as winner of Season 8 of Big Brother.

With the double eviction live show which, unfortunately, resulted in the demise of your player, the house is now down to the final four contestants. And, quite frankly, as you have already noticed, things are now moving at a new, and might I add, quickened pace.

When the number of houseguests whithers down the the final four, and I think this goes without saying, the HoH cannot be evicted. For the other three remaing houseguests to be safe, and therefore, to guarantee that they stay in the game, they must fight the good fight and, ultimately, win the PoV competition.

The PoV competition is the final, and (might I add) the most important of the season. The winner of the PoV competition holds all the power.

Since the staff at Allison Grodner Productions refuse to neither confirm nor deny the outcome of this PoV competition, I'll have to use my encyclical knowledge (and by knowledge, I mean insight, or knowing things other may overlook) to ultimately guess and suppose the outcome.

So here goes...

Let's suppose, for argument's sake, that Zach is the new HoH and he (being a panty-munching ogre) decided to nominate Evel Dick and his daughter, Daniele. Since the HoH (Zach) cannot vote, then one houseguest (Jameka) who isn't nominated casts the one and only, single and solitary, vote for eviction.


Unless Evel Dick or Daniele were to win the PoV competition. Let us, for argument's sake, suppose (and I think it's a safe assumption) that Daniele won the PoV competition. Clearly she would use the veto on herself. The HoH (Zach) needs to replace the nomination with the only other eligible player, and that is Jameka.

See why this PoV was so important? Not only does Daniele, as PoV winner, guarantee her own safety, but she now becomes the only person casting a vote for eviction. And, in this case, she needs to select between her father, Evel Dick, or Jameka.

Now you don't have to be a Philadelphia Lawyer to figure out who Daniele will be evicting!

Um, Jameka, might I say, fare thee well, and I will see you soon in sequester.

Now the pace of the game changes once more, with only three houseguests remaining, who will now battle it out for the title of the season's last (and, arguably, most important) HoH. This is important, and I can't say this clearly enough, that unlike previous HoH competitions, this time all of the houseguests are eligible to play in the final HoH competition. Even Zach, who is outgoing HoH.

Might I remind you, that this final HoH is never any typical HoH competition. Typically, Big Brother plans a 3-part HoH competition at the end, which takes place over the course of a few days.

The first segment of the 3-part HoH competition has routinely been an endurance competition. The winner of this first leg is safe (for now) and will advance directly to round three. Meanwhile the two losers engage one another to play in the second round. The player who lost the second round has lost, and is out of the running for HoH. But the second round winner advances to play the first round winner and the third, and final, round.

So to make this clear (and by clear, I mean "easily understood") the third phase of the HoH contest takes place, in which the winner of round one competes against the winner of round two. Whoever wins this third round challenge is crowned the new (and final) HoH of the season.

This is extremely important. It is the final HoH who selects who he/she will be evicting, and therefore select who they want to take to the final two.

Well, America, the jacuzzi and and a banana daquiri are calling me. My contact with the outside world is very limited now, and highly monitored. So I need to get back to the sequester house now.

But remember, I'm still playing for you, and look forward to casting your vote during the finale of this historic season of Big Brother!

We hope all of you BB afficionados and newbies have enjoyed our gentle attempt at satire as a means to explain the end game. Again, I repeat, satire.

I think that was a nice statement he made - he really made no rude or derogatory comments to anyone plus he did explain how the final HOH will be determined. He can't complain since he walked away with 40,000 - and he still has no voice in the final winner only what America says.

It's not really Eric - I remember Carolyn asking the poster ("America's Player") to post on her MySpace or send her an email telling her the poster's identity.

Great stuff!!

Yeah, I wanna know too about why we're not seeing any of the sequester house (SQH) footage as we have in past seasons as well as we have on, say, The Amazing Race! Let us in! Let us in! :)

Anyway, I think that AmERICa's Player did the best he could with the situation presented him...and at the VERY least, he got 40K and gets to be, almost simultaneously, in the SQH with Jess. :) WOW, can't wait to see how it all plays out.

The AP on here sounds just like the person that we all know and love, that had a pallet of TURKEY burgers delivered to his house the other week. LOL!

P.S. I loved all your surprises for us! The BBDish wear and Nick's interview. I hate to sound selfish, but is there any other little surprises coming this our way?

We LOVE you Carolyn!!!!!

Hehehe. What kind of dishchick would i be if i didn't have something up my sleeve?

And as to your guess about who the AP writer is.. Nope. Not not Mr Turkey Burgers...

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Ok so everyone is saying that Kris has kicked Daniele to the curb... probably has... anybody wanna bet that he'll forgive and forget if she wants him back after she has won!?!? Whether it is first or second?!?! I know that sounds bad but come on now how many men and women would run back for the money!

And in all honesty we shouldn't judge, we don't know about their relationship. No matter the situation it has been said by many that people will only cheat (and I'm not saying Daniele did, there is speculation about kisses, and many consider her behavior cheating) if there is a problem in the relationship. Now yes, some would cheat no matter what, but I find it hard to believe that someone would throw away a good, solid loving relationship for someone that they just met. Now I don't know Kris and Daniele but the way things have played out tells me that all wasn't perfect if their world... and that there relationship was lacking something if she so easily fell into the arms of another.

regarding dani's boyfriend...i think it's pretty safe to assume that they are no longer together. i noticed her myspace no longer has a profile pic anymore where it used to have a pic of dani and kris together. it appears he removed all the pics from her profile so i would assume he is no longer her boyfriend.

Commenting on Kris, Dani's boyfriend. She has an online blog and if you read the older entries, from before she and Kris were together -- He and Dani worked together...and they were interested in each other. Kris had a girlfriend...that he was either engaged to or he was planning to propose to. He ended up leaving the other girl because of Dani.

While I'm sure that Kris is a nice guy and I appreciate the hard time he may be having, I don't feel THAT bad for him. At their young ages, relationships end as you meet new people as you settle into life, as his did with his previous girlfriend.

So the same has happened to him now, an unfortunately for him, it unfolded on national TV.

One last comment about Dani & Kris -- I think everyone keeps forgetting that DANI IS ONLY JUST 21 YEARS OLD! I'm only 31 years old and I had a boyfriend of a few years when I was 21 years old and we both thought we were "serious" -- but guess what, life happens, things change, people change, etc.

Carolyn thanks again for the great blogs yesterday and today.Love the BB8Dish and our very own American Player.

He really let all of us know what will be happening on Tuesday with the last three comps.I am still routing for a Donato to win this last and very important HOH.

I really was sad to hear we couldn't see the sequester house this year when you posted it earlier.Yet didn't you say they will show a brief segment during the reunion and the night of voting for the winner.

We still do have the real America's player vote for BB8 winner right.So when will we be allowed to vote?

Have a great day and see you back here soon.
