Wow I am finally in the Big Brother house, this has been a dream of mine since I was 13 so it is still surreal! This has been a crazy week being HOH because we still have so many people in the house and their are so many real and fake alliances that it is hard to keep track with all of them. We do have a great group of houseguests and we have a blast together. Being a long time fan of the show I thought the game would be so much easier than what it is. When you are actually in the game it feels totally different than when you watch it on television. My strategy coming in to the game was to rely on social strategy but I have learned after a couple of weeks that you have to win if you can because every week is important and blindsides and backdooring is very popular this season. The guys are getting picked off one by one and that is a little bit scary to me but it is necessary at this point due to the worse alliance ever "the moving company". Still it is getting old having to hear the woman talk about woman stuff all of the time haha! It is almost impossible to know who to trust in this game and if you really start trusting anyone in this house then you are doing something wrong. At this point in the game I am going to stay loyal to the "knockouts" (McCrae, Amanda, Helen, Elissa, and Andy) but I also have a couple other people in the game that I am willing to work with so I will just have to find out what is best for my game in the long run and stick tight to it.
I nominated Kaitlin and Aaryn for eviction this week and by doing that I was hoping to not ruffle any feathers. I still feel like I owe Aaryn one for not coming after me when she had the opportunity and she has a huge target on her back, so my Texas Tornado comment was to still keep a target on her back if she stays and also to make it look like I have no ties to her. I had asked Kaitlin to be a pawn as well and that I would keep her safe. feel like they need separated now because this week coming up theres going to be a serious line drawn in the house and I need one of them on my side. Both Aaryn and Kaitlin are actually great people. Aaryn has done a lot to make people angry but she really is funny and has a good heart deep down. Kaitlin probably has the best heart in the house and everyone likes her but that is dangerous at this point in the game. After sharing this experience with each other I hope theirs no hard feelings down the road.
Some days in the Big Brother house you go a little stir crazy so we have to make our own fun in the house. Bandit Ball is probably one of the funnest games we have been playing and I am the current Bandit Ball champion!!!! We also hang out at the pool and jacuzzi a lot and play some pool. Helen is slowly becoming a pool shark! Other than that we just all act a little crazy! One of the funnest times I have had was copying everything a buzzed Andy did one night when I was a have not, it was driving him insane!
Now on the HAVE NOT situation. Slop is not good at all but we do have a few great slop chefs in the house (Amanda, Helen, Elissa, Jessie). I am not a good slop chef at all, any slop i have tried to make ends up being inedible and gets thrown out so I avoid slop while being a have not. We all do really appreciate y'all voting on extra choices we can have for the have not weeks, they have been awesome selections MOST of the time haha. I have been a have not twice and the first week we only had slop so I didn't eat much that week. Not eating very much was annoying at first and we all do have a mid-week slop melt down from time to time, but I have to say that it does make you way more humble as a person when you think about it because theirs people out there who would do anything to have unlimited slop for a week. When I have been a have not and catch myself complaining I always catch myself after and think of that and feel like a schmuck. The cold showers are no fun especially in the morning so you just have to do them as fast as possible. The trick to the bed situation is just to stay up as long as possible and go to sleep when you can't hardly hold your eyes open any longer. Everyone wants to be a have! But we also have to appreciate the food, running water, and shelter that we have. I went from being a have not to HOH so that was a major change this week, it felt strange being back in a bed again!
I hope y'all enjoy watching this season and always realize that this is a game we are playing. I can't wait to talk to all y'all (in September) God Bless y'all and I hope y'all are having a great summer!
God Bless, J-U-Double D
