Been catching up on some downloads, and looked at the Live Feed Highlights package for Day 22, the night Paul visited and Kryssie won HoH, and they had a little snippet in there of Paul and Scott chatting while they were watching the HoH comp play. (Scott, as outgoing HoH, was sitting out.) And Paul asked Scott which of the girls he was into…was it "that little cutie with the goggles (Alex)"? So I guess the thirst was real, as even Paul, who hadn't been in the house long enough to learn people's names, could see it.
Which brings up an interesting point…had this been a classic BB season (Final 2, 7 sequestered jurors), Scott would have been Juror #1 and when Alex showed up next, imagine how thrilled he would have been to think about getting to be alone with her for an entire week. Only to have his plans dashed when Whitney came in, a couple of hours later. Heh. that amuses me.
A trivia note: you may remember that Scott was the first person in the house, albeit that we just saw him wandering by himself, rather than leading a group of four bursting in, as usual. One thing I've noted through the years is that the first person in the house has never won the game, and Scott continues that tradition.
BB2: first in, Nicole; winner, Will.
(Although Nicole did make F2; as the winner exits the house before the runner-up, she was technically "first in, last out".)
BB3: first in, Amy; winner, Lisa
(Lisa was the second one in, though, right behind Amy.)
BB4: first in, Scott Weintraub; winner, Jun
(Scott W. was, of course, first out, as well…expelled for throwing a chair in an empty room.)
BB5: first in, Adria; winner, Drew
BB6: first in, April; winner, Maggie
BB7 (All-Stars): first in, Janelle; winner, Mike Boogie
BB8: actually I don't know if the theory is true for this season…I refuse to keep this shit on my computer.
(And I've kept BB15, ffs. But Dickless can go blow himself. And besides, the "Alice in Wonderland" house was so damn ugly.)
BB9: first in, Natalie Cunial (implants nearly falling out of her dress, of course); winner, Adam "Baller" Jasinski
BB10: first in, April; winner, Dan
(Dan was in the first group, and was actually first to the exterior door, but he held it for the ladies [and Jessie] and entered 5th.)
BB11: first in, Laura; winner, Jordan
(Well, it was a "Popular" girl first in…just not the right one.)
BB12: first in, Rachel; winner, Hayden Moss
(Rachel does, of course, eventually win BB…just not until next year.)
BB13: first in, Shelly; winner, Rachel
(And Rachel wins because Shelly flipped her vote, the only newbie to vote for the vet. So that's something, I guess.)
BB14: first in, Ashley; winner, Ian
(this would have been symmetry if their "showmance" was anything beyond CBS trying to get cross-promotion for The Big Bang Theory. Still, it's all-Pittsburgh bookends, which is still kind of cute.
And Jodi, who only lasted in the house for 6 hours or so, was the second in, so at least she pretty much maximized her time…)
BB15: first in, Gina-Marie; winner, Andy
(Andy was right behind her, the only time the F2 entered 1-2. And if there was a significant time lag before the next four came in [as happened to allow the formation of the "First Five" alliance in BBCan2] perhaps this is where that "night 1" alliance between these two [that Andy referenced in his Jury speech but which we never saw a hint of] was formed. J-U-Double-D was there, too, so perhaps here's where the ground work for the Nazi Death Squad, I mean "Exterminators", was laid. The building blocks to Auschwitz, as it were.
The fourth member of that initial quartet, Candice, was of course [at least in Gina-Marie's eyes] disqualified on account of melanin…)
BB16: first in, Joey; winner, Derrick
(Joey joins Scott W. in the "first in, first out" club; Derrick wasn't even in the house on Day 1, as they held back 8 HGs for the separate HoH contest on Day 2 in these "Battle of the Block" seasons.)
BB17: first in, Da'Vonne; winner, Steve
(Mama Da', horrible player that she is, damn near joins Scott and Joey in the U-Turn club. Steve, like Derrick, was a Day 2 entrant, but still overcame the Day 1 Alliance to win. [Indeed, five of the F6, bar only Austin, had entered on Day 2. Well, Julia didn't swap in until Day 5, but still.])
BB18: first in, Michelle; winner, Nicole
(Obviously, Nicole didn't have any chance to pull a first/winner double, since the returnees entered via suitcase, after the new players were already in there.)
So we can see that the first in is almost always a woman (Scott W. was in a group of three guys, via random draw) due to, well, chauvinism. "Ladies first, etc." And since women are only 1/6 in mixed-gender finales (Nicole becoming the first woman to beat a man this summer), probably at least partly due to sexism, that means the odds are rather against anyone pulling this (admittedly rather irrelevant feat) anytime soon. Scott may have been our best hope in years.
Thanks for nothing, Werewolf Boy!
