    So they're using the "pull out" method of birth control? Also known as "parenthood?"

    I had to laugh at the edit last night where you had footage of Jordan waiting for his moose to die so he could butcher it and feast juxtaposed with footage of Brady congratulating himself for not wasting one of his survival items on a bow and arrow, 'cuz nobody ever bags big game like a moose and it is much more sensible to concentrate on fishing and small game.... I do worry that there's no way Jordan is going to be able to adequately preserve his moose meat safely. Those were pretty big hunks he had hanging to smoke over that puny fire. I'm no outdoorsman, nor do I play one on TV, but I would think cutting the meat into smaller chunks would smoke and preserve it faster, and thus more safely. I have to think that even though the outside of those big roasts get smoked, there's still a raw and spoiling core. Yeah, yeah, yeah, the bacteria and oxygen would have to get into the core, so maybe the surface smoking "seals" it, but these aren't laboratory conditions and.... I also wonder about all that meat attracting predators. Bears are looking to feed up to hibernate, but even after they hibernate, there are other predators about that don't hibernate... Speaking of which, is wolverine meat even that good? I guess it is protein, and food is food under these circumstances, but I have understood that carnivore meat is nasty and herbivore meat is much tastier.

    First snakes, and now cockroaches? What is this? Fear Factor?

    Au contraire.... I think the constant hooking up is exactly what the producers were hoping to get by concentrating the casting on mactor types. They hit the jackpot with Jack and Son. Nick is just a bonus... From the very beginning of this show, there were titillating whispers over whether or not the hamsters would "get it on" in the house. It is the producers fondest dream...they think it increases ratings, though they usually don't ever dare show anything other than some kissing and snuggling on the broadcast show. But they depend on the whisper campaign--of which we are complicit, of course, by posting in forums like this--to get viewers to tune in, hoping to catch a thrilling voyeuristic glimpse of moral turpitude. Nowadays though, it isn't that anticipatory "will they? won't they?" question, it is more a question of when and how and where and how rude about it to the other hamsters will they be. That's the part that's grown tiresome now. The nasty details like jizz towels and drawers full of used condoms that the feedsters expose will never make the broadcast show, but folks hear about them and tune in to wonder "Is that the towel? Is that the drawer?" Humans are weird. Does anyone remember the first BB hook up? I'm not talking showmance, I"m talking the first "brown chicken, brown cow" moment... It was so long ago that I can no longer remember who and what season it was, but I do remember the "OOOooooOOOOooooOOOhhhh!" online reaction to it. Once the producers got a taste of that, it was all over, they were going to cast to try and facilitate hookups like that in the future. And I write all that in full self awareness that I am voyeuristically participating in this cycle myself!

    Gawd help me, but this show is a train wreck I couldn't keep my eyes off of last night. It isn't appointment television, by any means, and I despise The Bachelor/Bachelorette, and I will never, ever admit to anyone (other than all y'all, my fine invisible internet friends) that I watch/watched this show, but...holy crap, this is so bad I can't help but stare in fascination.

    Love him or hate him, this is exactly what Cody tried to do back in BB19 when he tried to backdoor Paul after the first Veto, but Paul's untouchability and immunity screwed Cody over, and Paul couldn't be put on the block. Some folks say that was was Cody going against his alliance, but I think that was Cody clearly recognizing a threat, and trying to eliminate it. He just didn't have the time to discuss it in committee. On the spot, Cody then put up Christmas, another popular and strong player in the house, and also a threat. Cody got excoriated by his alliance and the rest of the house (except Jessica) for actually having the audacity to play the game. He may be kind of a right-wing jerky robot, but I will always appreciate Cody trying to actually play the game.

    Yeah, Nick is not the person I'd want to depend on in an emergency, but did you see how he just kept washing the dishes while the quake was going on and everyone was screaming at him to get out from under the spiky faux elk horn chandelier over the sink? And how he kept washing the dishes until he glanced up at the swaying spiky faux elk horn chandelier, and then moved? He kept washing the dishes. I don't know what that tells of his character, but it is telling of his character. All thinks considered, I think I'd rather have someone who kept washing the dishes in the face of an earthquake on my side than someone who's first instinct was to dress up his man bun. Jack.

    Interesting that it was Kemi who characterized herself as a "mean girl" in her bio, but it is Isabella who is acting like the quintessential mean girl here. She's got the trifecta going: pretend you're their best girlfriend, talk about and mock your "best girlfriend" behind her back, ascribe your own behaviors and actions to your "best girlfriend" behind her back.

    What about Dr. Will and Mike Boogie? That goes a loooong ways back though... I do hope that Nicole is smart enough to see through Jack. I fear, however, that inside she's squeeing "He's talking to me! He's talking to me... He. Is talking. To ME!!!!!! OMG OMG OMG....."

    Watching this episode, it was extremely apparent that Jack is hyperaware of the cameras, and how his look should be from whatever angle. Too bad he's not likewise aware of what a jackhole he is being. Jackson also didn't come off looking very good last night either, with that whole sequence of "Yeah, Kat and I totally got it on, and I still sleep with her in her bed, but now I want to get with this other chick, so I've got to dump Kat, and tell everyone how awful she is so nobody blames me for dumping her, but I don't want it to be awkward for ME." Jackholes, the both of 'em. And Isabella? As others have pointed out, the reason all-women alliances don't work out is indeed because of women like you. We've seen this over and over, any sort of women's alliance is betrayed and broken up by women who would rather try to cling to the douchebros where they're clearly on the bottom of that alliance than try to get something really going with the women. It is a "type" and it is a "type" that constantly gets cast on this show. Kemi and Jessica are likely to be the next two out. Nicole may hang in there for a long, long time....but only because she is literally invisible to the douchebros. It is like she doesn't even exist to them. And? OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG. I couldn't watch the Whacktivity comp. Nope. Nopeity, nope, nope. I have an extreme snake phobia--it isn't rational, I know it isn't rational, but that's what a phobia is. I did catch some of it between my fingers while it whizzed by on fast forward, and even though I really, really can't even nope, not at all with snakes, I was actually feeling sorry for them with the way they were being manhandled all around. I mean, there at the end, Jack treated them like they were rubber snakes rather than living creatures with the way he was grabbing, whipping them around, and shoving and jamming them into their boxes. What a selfish jerk, this was all about him, him, him. You know, that's really telling of his personality, when he makes me feel sympathetic for a snake!

    So....what happened with Jackson's foot? From that photo, it just looks like a bad bug bite to me.

    Not to mention the fact that there's no way they're able to really get all that crap cleaned up out of the backyard, a little ranch dressing is likely to have spattered somewhere it wasn't supposed to. And then these hamsters walk through it with their bare feet, then walk into the house, aaaaaand..... I think we've learned where some of the legendary BB house funky smell might originate from...
