Celebrity Big Brother: Keeping Up The Pace

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 11, 2018

Hi y’all!

I had my doubt when I first learned that Celebrity Big Brother would only last for a month but, personally, I’m kind of liking this faster pace.  I have yet to have to deal with a day where nothing has happened in the house.  These celebs are playing hard and quite a few of them are playing surprisingly well.  I mean, just compare them to the houseguests from Big Brothers 19 and 18.  Some of them may have made mistakes but at least almost all of them are trying to play.  And since there’s not much time left in the game, no one has the option to just spend their days sitting around, waiting for their opportunity.  Say what you will about these celebs but at least none of them are going to leave the house and brag about how they didn’t do anything other than eat cereal for the entire summer.

With tonight’s show, we got to see the HoH competition.  Ever since it was learned that Omarosa had gone to the hospital, there were rumors that Marisa had hit her with a bowling ball.  We now know that wasn’t the case.  On The Apprentice, Omarosa had a history of faking injuries and illness whenever she was feeling threatened.  That said, speaking as someone who has asthma, I don’t doubt that her attack was real.  I know a lot of people online disagree with me about that.

Ross won HoH.  As we saw in tonight’s episode, he did nominate Omarosa and Keisha for eviction and the plan appears to be to get out Omarosa.  It is true that he and Marisa considered backdooring Shannon but, as Margie pointed out under the last post, it appears that Ross has slightly backed off of that plan.  He’s figured out that the entire house wants Omarosa out so badly that not getting her out would probably make him the least popular person in the house.  Everyone does seem to realize that Shannon is too good a player to be allowed to stick around for too long but, at the same time, no one trusts or wants to work with Omarosa.  That’s what happens when you base your entire career on being a cartoonish villain. Ross’s plan right now seems to be to target Omarosa while keeping Shannon as his backup in case Omarosa or Metta wins the veto.

Tomorrow, someone will be evicted from the house.  The POV will be played live so, until that’s happened, we really won’t know who is going home.  Metta has said that, if he wins the veto, he would be more inclined to pull Omarosa off the block than Keisha because he thinks people will be more likely to vote to keep Keisha.  All the other houseguests appear to be hoping to keep the nominations the same.   (That could change quickly, with how fast this game is moving.)

We’ll see what happens!

Lisa Marie

Thank you Lisa! I’m inclined to agree with you about Omarosa’s asthma attack. I have nieces who have asthma and any over exertion can bring on an attack! I’m my opinion, someone with a history of asthma should not even go into the BB house. There will probably be more strenuous comps, unless they dumb down the comps like they did for Christmas last season! We shall see! I would like to see someone win the Veto comp who will leave the nominations the same!! I want Omarosa out tomorrow night! Just looking at her brings back nightmares of Apprentice! LOL
I agree that most of the houseguests are playing the game! It was amusing watching Ariadna trying to influence Ross on BBAD last night. She’s no dummy! I think she knows exactly what she wants, and she is voicing her opinion in a quiet way! Watch out for the silent ones! 😉

Does Ross or anyone else realize that James threw the competition. James knocked down those pins 1, 2, 3 and then all of a sudden he’s missing??? Granted the 2nd time around might be a little harder but he went from great to lousy. I sure hope Omarosa goes. I can’t stand her condescending, snooty tone. I don’t know if I believe her asthma was that bad. Maybe the show felt they needed to err on the side of caution but I just don’t believe her. She’s downright nasty and conniving.

Janice. I was wondering the same. No ones been talking about it. In fact, not sure I got why Shannon even intervened! As far as she knows, they’re all on the same team. If she promised Ross to help him get HOH I missed that. Janes wasn’t real happy about it but was a good sport. It was so obvious tho. That was his third turn and the first two he killed it!! Also she must not have a clue that her alliance might be ready to get her out or why would she help Ross? That whole situation was confusing.
I wanted to smack Omarosa when she tried to shut Ross up st the Nom ceremony. She is such a snide, manipulative power freak! Ross handled it well.
And I too have asthma. I have never had a full blown attack but I know exertions can make it flair. Seems like they would have kept her overnight in the hospital Big it had been that bad.

Star …. didn’t you LOVE at the nomination ceremony when Ross asked Omorosa if she wanted to leave and he would just talk to the rest of the group!!!! lol I loved it! She wants to be in charge of everything….Keisha is almost as bad as Omorosa and takes everything that happens or is said as a racial slur. That gets so old!

Janice & Star….. Yes Ross knows that James threw the comp or should I say he figured it out! I heard him and the fuzzy haired girl (can’t think of her name right now) talking about it. They also think that Shannon threw it. I think she did also.

HOH and didn’t seem to realize it was given to him. A five-
year-old could have seen James threw the comp.

Debi, My daughter has asthma and there were many nights that I had put her on the nebulizer every 3-4 hours round the clock. Omarosa didn’t look close to being that distressed but like I said earlier, the show most likely erred on the side of caution. We’ve seen her tricks and nasty ways for years. She is not a likable person at all.

They are being evicted for the content of their character and not the color of their skin, just like Dr. King wanted.

Joan, I don’t think they want to evict Omarosa because she is black. I think they want her gone because of her attitude! She thought she was going to come into the BB house and be a “celebrity” and be treated as one! She started out being very cooperative with everyone but the first time things didn’t go her way, she had a completely different attitude! That’s when she got together with Keisha and created the “black girl” alliance. She, and only she started the “race” card! She has done that her entire career! Her entire attitude stinks! IMHO ❤❤❤❤

Jolee….. I totally agree. The reason they want to evict Omorosa as well as Keisha is their attitude NOT their color. Not everything is about the color of your skin. Omorosa and Keisha were the first people to even bring that into the equation by forming the BGM!

Star February 12, 2018 at 3:34 am

Lisa. Thanks for the new post. I agree with you about so much!! I was prepared to really hate this season. I have to admit I was not a fan
Of that one last Fall at ALL. I am also loving the fast pace. And the other thing I’m enjoying is the fact that these HGs are older, have a work ethic, and I am actually interested in their convos. Even just the chatty ones. They talk about their lives and show biz and TV, play games … are just altogether way more interesting than a bunch of lazy ass 20 something’s talking about drinking, getting laid and eating cereal!! Very refreshing actually. I also think the fact that there are and won’t be any showmances is a big plus!!
Btw. I think the BY is so cozy!! It’s so cute and intimate and facilitated getting the sets up faster. It’s cool too that they have the weights and pool table inside. That way the HGS always have something to do when they have lockdowns! I wish they’d consider keeping it like that for summer. But I suppose they can’t then as they use the yard and pool more then. Sorry. Just spitballing here. lol

I think Ross is considering making a deal with James to help get Shannon out. Wow. They’re really afraid of her! Good luck girl. You’re going to have to keep winning to stay.

Star and Jolee: You nailed it again. I love the pool table
being inside and the coziness of each of the rooms. It encourages
the group to mingle more.
I am so disappointed in Ross. He is overplaying his hand a little
more each day. I can only hope Shannon keeps on winning and
is able to stay. I know he’s trying to win big time, but he is
going to find out, I’m afraid, that the ones he’s aligned with the
most may be his ticket out the door.

I love Metta both on and off the court, but he really should have watched a couple of episodes of BB to prepare. Do your homework. Mark McGrath needs a new colorist, for real. His hair matches his skin, not a good look. Marissa needs to lose the hairpiece, she has a pretty face, the giant 80’s hair is too distracting. Omarosa needs a personality transplant – I’ve seen pitbulls with better dispositions. What’s with the Lady “O” crap? First of all, I’m not sure she qualifies as a lady, And secondly, is she really trying to compare herself to Oprah? Girl, please! James, well we all could use something nice to look at I suppose. At least they are all there to play, except for Metta. Maybe he thought he was going to the Olympics.

Hi everyone and thank you for doing the CBB blog Lisa, I was so excited to just find this! I must say that I thought that I wouldn’t get involved watching a group of narcissistic celebs fighting for camera time but I was wrong. These people are more interesting than the last few seasons of BB. I actually don’t dislike any of them and find a few, like Ross and Metta, quite entertaining. I’d say my only complaint😬 would be that Marissa never stops talking hhah…I think Metta wanted out last week just for some silence. Now I’m going back to read all of your past comments & catch up..Fun reading!

tendr I heard rumors about Oma getting a lot of money. I never thought CBS would pay that much for any BB but I guess they did. I’m worried that they won’t let her be evicted so they get their monies worth.
I would think if Ross knew BB so well he wouldn’t pass a chance to get Omarosa out. I don’t think Shannon has committed such unpardonable crimes and I hope she stays a while.

Omarosa has always been a racist! Supposedly she was paid 2 million and guaranteed a talk show when CBB is over (per Wendy Williams). Omarosa’s huge “diamond” is less than real…it does not sparkle and is very milky. She would be the 1st to scream if “someone” had formed a “WGM” alliance.
Metta World Peace doesn’t have a clue but he can play his ass off on the basketball court.
James Maslow is a pretty boy…in his eyes. James should have been evicted.
Keisha believes in Bill Cosby…what does that tell you about how smart she is?!? She also just had a baby and her x-NFL husband is now her ex-husband (divorcing her before the baby was born) and who took her to court for a DNA testing. He’s a real piece of work and was married to one of the original Housewives of Atlanta. Keisha believes she is holier than thou.
Chuck is not that bad. Just a good ‘o boy who has had his head jarred a few too many times.
Ross is my FAV…he is a hoot!
Shannon Elizabeth is a phony Bitch in the house! She is making deals with anyone who will talk to her for 5 minutes.
Brandy is goofy, a heavy drinker, and was a woman scorned by her ex Eddy Cibreon (who can’t keep a job) who fell in love with LeAnn Rimes on a movie set (who supports him now).
Marrisa has big faux hair and is known for her role in Broadway’s Hair Spray and says f*ck quite often. I really don’t know much about her.
Ariadna is beautiful! Brandy is using all her facial creams and beauty products. Steve Harvey called her as a winner in a Beauty Pageant but the winner was actually another contestant.
Mark McGrath thinks he’s 16 years old and if he has any more plastic survey on his face he will begin to look like Joan Rivers! (No shade on Joan…I adored her)
Please keep in mind…js
