Celebrity Big Brother: This Show Is Growing On Me

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 8, 2018

Hi, y’all!

So, after watching the second episode of Celebrity Big Brother and a little of the live feeds, I have to admit that Celeb Big Brother is starting to grow on me.  While some of the celebs are clearly only there to get a quick payday and maybe try to jump start their sagging careers, there are enough — like Shannon and Ross — who are actually interested in playing the game.  And Omarosa is a good villain, though I do hope she’s not around for too long.  As of right now, the girls have got all the power and the guys really don’t seem to know what they’re doing.

As for tonight’s episode, I thought it was good.  I quickly got bored with Omarosa crying about her time in the White House but then again, that’s the main reason she’s on the show and, considering that she’s in the house with a bunch of Democrats, it’s actually probably a good strategic move on her part to try to distance herself from the candidate that they all probably voted against.

As we all saw tonight, all of the girls chose to open their golden gift bags, mostly so they could keep one of the guys from getting the power to recast themselves as HoH.  Keisha won the recast and, as the new HoH, she promptly nominated Chuck and James for eviction.

That’s probably a good decision on her part.  James is really the only guy who has his head in the game.  As for Chuck, he doesn’t appear to be the smartest celeb in the house and he managed to alienate all of the girls by opening his gift bag.  By nominating James and Chuck, Keisha managed to upset Metta World Peace.  Metta said he wanted to be evicted so he could see his wife and children.  However, he wasn’t nominated so now, he says he wants to stay in the house and get revenge.

(Who would have guessed that someone who changed his name to Metta World Peace would turn out to be such a flake?)

Now, here come the SPOILERS:

Shannon Elizabeth won the power of veto.  After thinking about using the veto on Chuck so that they could nominate Mark in his place, she decided not to use the veto.  So, the nominees are James and Chuck with James as the target.

The girl’s seem strong but there’s a weak link in their alliance and that’s Brandy, who drinks too much and tends to say whatever pops into her head.  She is getting on everyone’s nerves.  Omarosa and Shannon also both appear to distrust Ross so he could soon be in trouble.

Whether it’s James or Chuck, we’ll see who goes home tomorrow!

Thank you for the update. I’m not an Omarosa fan and I don’t know if her tears are genuine. Maybe they were tears of humiliation. I’m a little surprised that Shannon and Omarosa are not trusting Ross. At least we’ll have answers soon since this is only going for a month.

Big Brother needs to call it a night. This show has become so stage it’s a total joke. I watch the show for the first two night and was not surprised it would be even worse than last season, it’s really getting old. I guess they are getting desperate to keep this show on the air. When they need to pull the plug on the show it’s getting really pathetic. I guess they can’t find better shows. However, I enjoy reading Lisa Marie’s blog and the fans comments and will keep read them.

Thank you Lisa. We haven’t watched tonight’s show yet, thanks to NC basketball!! Looking forward to seeing Omarosa discussing her Whitehouse experience. I understand she was fired because she talked too much! Who knows?? She’s always expressed her opinion even when nobody cared about it! 😊

Jolee: Heard Omarosa had a habit of leaving her shoes all
over the WH. She rubbed almost everyone in the WH the
wrong way by acting like she had more authority than she
actually had. I believe most thought she was just a joke. But
I wasn’t there and can only go on what’s been in the news and
from the way she came across on The Apprentice. I think she
and Brandi are the drama queens of the house.

I watched Pop after dark last night. I’m not sure how I’m going to like this but last night after dark was good. Brandi was drunk and caused drama. I also liked that the group played charades together.

Omarosa might also be getting the BB edit to make it seem as though she is now antiTrump… I won’t put much stock into that one… but I do think she’s playing the liberal HGs.

The girls are CLEARLY much smarter and generally better BB game players than their male adversaries. ( well excluding the drunken Brandy. I find it amusing that her name is a liquor…)

You know BB will have to throw in a twist if the guy numbers dwindle too quickly…

We missed the regular show, but watched about an hour of BBAD. We will have to wait until tomorrow to watch tonight’s show! Goodnight everyone! 😴

I too hope Omarossa goes soon. TV to me is an escape from reality and I hate that they are using my escape to make it about politics and hating on our president whether for or against him. I want to watch Big Brother and the strategy and quirkiness of it.

I enjoyed last night’s show and I’m so glad to see this blog back in action. Now I have something fun to read with my coffee.
I wasn’t comfortable with Omarosa’s telling of her White House experience. She was fired and may be bitter but she also is playing a game. It certainly has hints of a strategy for her.
I do have the feeds but every time I’ve checked in they have been down or HG’s were sleeping. I have no patience to wait.
So far Shannon is my favorite but we all know how fast that can change.

Omorossa knows how to get media attention but I don’t think there’s a long term career for her in entertainment. There is certainly not a long term career for her in politics so I hope she has a skill.

I dont know why some fans are so cranky. The game has certainly plateaued and they need to watch how much production interferes because we are on to that..But the game is great and the celebs have been playing well. I enjoy watching very much.

Normally Shannon would be picked off because she is the strongest player early on but with a short season it may be wise to go to the front early and try to stay there… Shannon to win..Ross 2nd

Marc: I have been surprised to find out so many in the
house are huge BB fans and really understand the game. I
think them knowing how to play will make it better than
having one player who knows how to play and the rest in
the dark. Either they all need to know how to play or they
all need to know nothing. I think this may turn out to be
more entertaining than originally thought. I really like Shannon
and Ross. I like Melissa/Marissa (?), too. Brandi and Omarosa
are strictly there for the drama. I do believe though that they
need to take the alcohol away.
I have to wonder when it is going to dawn on BB that an all
girl alliance is a one in a million chance of succeeding. Women
have too hard of a time getting along.

I want older ppl who don’t feel entitled. Metta doesn’t understand the game. He was shocked about what you get if you’re HOH. Such as family letter and photos and now he wants to go home.

Don’t know why the HG’s are all so in awe of Omarosa. She lost On her season of the Apprentice and was fired from her job in the WH. Shouts loser to me, yet they all hand on her every word. Brandy is just plain nasty. Think Chuck should team up with Marissa as he has the physical strength but not the social game, and she has the game but not the physical strength.
