Celebrity Big Brother: Omarosa’s Plan

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 18, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, if you just watched tonight’s episode of Celebrity Big Brother, you know what Omarosa did as far as nominations are concerned.  She nominated Ross and Brandi for eviction, with an eye towards breaking up the power couples.

Her target is Ross and she’s made final four deals with both Mark and James to get them to vote her way on Monday.  If Mark, James, and Metta all vote the way Omarosa wants them to, Ross will be evicted on a 3-2 vote.

At first, Ross and Marissa were convinced that James and Mark were planning on voting to evict Brandi but, yesterday, Ari finally figured out that Omarosa might have made a deal with Mark and James.  She told Marissa about her suspicions and, of course, Marissa promptly told Ross and the two of them decided that they needed to get more information to determine whether Ari was right…

…which seems kind of strange to me.  Are Marissa and Ross really so clueless that it wouldn’t occur to them that Omarosa would have a deal going with Mark and James?  Since they knew that Omarosa wanted Ross out, they should have been scrambling even before the nominations, trying to to sew up every vote they could get.  Instead, they got cocky, they gave into hubris, and now Ross is in a really bad position.

Depending on what happens with the veto, Mark and James will pretty much be deciding who goes home on Monday night.  They’ve both made a deal with Omarosa but that doesn’t necessarily mean that either one will hold up their end of it.  Earlier today, while they were working out, Mark and James discussed whether or not they should vote the way that Omarosa wants them to or if they should negotiate a final four deal with Ross and Marissa.  The main problem that they both had with working with Ross and Marissa was that they felt that Ross would always be more loyal to Marissa than to them.

In the end, Mark and James decided to wait and see what happens with the veto.  Neither one wants to get targeted by Omarosa but, at the same time, Omarosa won’t be able to compete in the next HoH.

As always, we’ll see what happens!

Celebrity Big Brother: Three Vetoes To Choose From

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 17, 2018

Hi y’all!

Well, before I tell you anything else, I need to tell you about the three vetoes.  Right now, over at CBS.com, you have the option to vote for what type of veto the houseguests will be playing for on Monday!  Here are the three options:

Diamond Veto: The Veto winner has the power to remove one of the nominees from the chopping block and also name the replacement nominee.

VIP Veto: The winner of this Veto will have the option to use the Veto once or twice or not at all in the same Veto Meeting. If the winner of the VIP Veto removes one of the nominees, he or she will wait for a replacement nominee to be made before deciding if they want to use it a second time.

Spotlight Veto: The winner of this Veto is guaranteed to be in the spotlight at the Veto Meeting because this Veto HAS to be used to save one of the two nominees from the chopping block!

You can cast your vote up until Monday, 12 pm est.

As for what’s happening in the house:

To no one’s surprise, Shannon Elizabeth was voted out on Friday.  Only Brandi voted for Shannon to stay.  At first, I thought that maybe she was trying to cause chaos and make people distrust each other.  Then I saw that, earlier in the day, she told Metta that she was going to give Shannon a sympathy vote but that she wanted him to claim that he was the one who did it.  I guess she figured that Metta wouldn’t care one way or the other.  Well, Metta refused to do it which left Brandi with no choice but to admit to everyone that she was the one who cast the vote.

The houseguests, especially Ross and Marissa, did not react well to this.  In fact, Ross and Marissa are acting as if this is the greatest betrayal in the history of Big Brother.  I have to admit that I don’t really care much for either Ross or Marissa at this point.  As far as I can tell, their only real strategy is to suck up to whoever is in charge.

Speaking of being in charge, last night’s HoH was an endurance comp and it was won by … OMAROSA!

So now, Omarosa is in charge.  Last night, she told Metta that she’s not really interesting in taking out a power player like James because, as long as James is in the house, he’ll always be a bigger target than her.  Instead, she’s looking towards breaking up the couples alliance, which means that she’s either going to nominate Ross and Marissa or Brandi and Ari.  Personally, I’m hoping she nominates Ross and Ari just so my ears can have a rest from listening to them yelling.

We’ll see what happens!

SHANNON, who was once the most powerful player in the house

or

MARK, who has so far flown under the radar?

Celebrity Big Brother: Here Are Your Veto Results!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 15, 2018

Hi y’all!

Last night, the houseguests competed for the veto.

Just to recap: Ari is the HoH, though Brandi might as well be co-HoH at this point.  Ross and Marissa have allied themselves with Ari and Brandi.  I have a feeling that those two will ally themselves with whoever has the power.

Ari nominated Shannon and James for eviction.  Shannon’s the target.  That means that Shannon really needed to win this veto if she wanted to stay in the house.  Last night, they played for the veto and…

SHANNON DID … not win.

Instead, James won the veto.  That means that James is safe and, unless Shannon can make a bunch of new alliances in two days, she is going to be voted out.  Last night, Shannon was talking to Metta and saying that she feels that she let herself and her charity down.  Obviously, she feels that Metta will be the easiest houseguest to flip over to hre side but I’m not sure if she’s right about that.

James will be using the veto on himself.  Ari and Brandi are still targeting Shannon for eviction, so they’re going to have to nominate a pawn.  They don’t want to nominate Metta because there’s a possibility that he might pull a Keshia and beg to be voted out.  And it’s possible that, if they nominate Ross or Marissa, Shannon could convince people that either one of them is a bigger threat to win the game.

So, last night, they were trying to chose between Mark and Omarosa.  Omarosa, they felt, might get voted out if she was nominated.  No one views here as being a reliable ally, no one trusts her, and no one likes her.  From what I heard last night, it sounds as if Mark will be the likely replacement.  However, you know how things go in the Big Brother House.  That could change by the time they have the veto ceremony.

Ross and Marissa are still both convinced that there will be a double eviction on Friday.  CBS hasn’t mentioned anything about a double eviction so it’s hard to say.  Obviously, with only a week to go in the game, they’re going to have to start doing some doubles at some point.

We’ll see what happens with the veto ceremony later today!

Celebrity Big Brother: Happy Valentine’s Day

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 14, 2018

Hi, everyone!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Well, on this Ash Wednesday, here’s how things currently stand in the Big Brother House:

Ari is the HoH.  Her main alliance is with Brandi and then she has also partnered up with Marissa and Ross.  Just as she said she would, Ari has nominated Shannon and James for eviction.  So, unless something really crazy happens (which is always a possibility), one of those two will be heading out the door on Friday night.  Ross also thinks that Friday will be a double eviction so it might be two people heading out the door.

(It makes sense.  There’s not much time left in the show and there’s still 9 people in the house.  So, they’re going to have to start doubling up evictions if they’re going to get rid of 6 more people before the finale.  Still, I think if there was a double eviction coming up, Julie Chen would have mentioned it to the viewers on Monday.  You know how this show loves to make a big deal about stuff like that.  Maybe more will be revealed on the show tonight.)

Though he seems like he’s in a good position, Ross could actually be in trouble.  Even though he seems to have a solid final four alliance with Ari, Brandi, and Marissa, the girls don’t totally trust him.  He tried so hard to convince them to nominate Omarosa and Metta and then backdoor Shannon that it ended up reiterating how sneaky Ross can be.  As well, Ross is viewed as potentially being too close to Mark McGrath.

To me, one of the more interesting things about this season is that, each week, the HoH has targeted a strong player just to then see a weaker player voted out of the house.  Shannon and Keshia both started out by targeting James but it was Chuck who ended up getting evicted.  Then Ross started out by targeting Omarosa before switching his sights to Shannon.  Of course, when eviction night came, Keshia blew up the whole plan by begging to be sent home.  Unless something really weird happens with the veto, Ari will be the first HoH to evict a legitimate threat to win the game.

We’ll see what happens!

Celebrity Big Brother: About Last Night…

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 13, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, let’s talk about last night.

Both the veto and the eviction were broadcast live and, as the show played out, we had every reason to believe that Shannon would be backdoored.  That’s certainly what the show’s editors believed would happen.  The first half of the show emphasized that Ross and Marissa were planning on using the veto to backdoor Shannon and get her out of the house.  When Marissa won the veto, it looked like a blindside was about to occur…

Except, suddenly, Keshia was crying.  Everyone was standing around Keshia, listening to her as she begged them to vote her out of the house.  Apparently, her breast pump broke earlier that morning and she felt that she needed to get home to take care of her baby.  At first, she wanted Ross, Marissa, Brandi, and Ari to promise to vote her out on Friday in exchange for her voting to evict Shannon.  However, Keshia then decided that she had to go home immediately.  In tears, she begged everyone to vote her out of the house.

And so, Marissa didn’t use the veto.  Keshia asked everyone to vote her out.  Omarosa asked everyone to “do what is best for Keshia.”  By a vote of seven to zero, Keshia was evicted from the house.

Honestly, I sympathize with Keshia but, at the same time, I absolutely hate it when people voluntarily quit.  Even more so, I hate it when people ask to be voted out.  There was nothing keeping Keshia from walking out of the house if she really felt that she had to leave.  The only difference is that, if you self-evict, you don’t get paid as much as you do when you’re voted out.

(My question is why couldn’t production just get Keshia a new breast pump.)

Anyway, Keshia is now gone and both Shannon and Omarosa are still in the house.  However, Shannon’s days may be numbered.  Ari won HoH last night and now, she and Brandi are in charge of the house.  Both of them are eager to make their mark by getting out a strong player.  Last night, Ross and Marissa again tried to sell them on the plan for backdoor Shannon.

However, as of right now, it looks like Ari and Brandi are planning on just going ahead and nominate both Shannon and James for eviction,  That way, they’re guaranteed to get at least one of them out of the house.  For now, they’re taking the direct approach.

Of course, the problem with targeting two people for eviction is that one of them will stay in the house and, if that person wins the next HoH, both Ari and Brandi might find themselves being targeted for eviction.  Then again, it’s also possible that there will be a double eviction on Friday so that might give them a chance to send both Shannon and James out on the same night.

We’ll see what happens.

Celebrity Big Brother: The Diary Room Is Now Open!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 12, 2018

Wow, is it time to open up the diary room again?

It seems like I just did this three or four days ago.  This show is moving fast.

Okay, so tonight, the nominees of Keshia and Omarosa but that could change.  Since they haven’t played for the veto yet, those nominations could change.  Metta has said that if he plays for and wins the veto, he’ll take Omarosa off the block.

Who would go up as a replacement nominee?  Probably Shannon Elizabeth.  Everyone realizes what a strong player she is and that she would be difficult to beat in the finale.

So, with all that in mind, let’s go ahead and open up the diary room.  Who do you vote to evict?

Do you vote to evict:

OMAROSA

or

KESHIA

or

A REPLACEMENT NOMINEE WHO WILL PROBABLY BE SHANNON?

Cast your vote in the comments below or over in the poll on the right side of the page!  And then be sure to watch tonight to see who will be the 2nd celeb voted out of the Big Brother House!

Happy voting,

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!

Celebrity Big Brother: Here’s Your New HoH!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 10, 2018

Hi, y’all!

Well, it didn’t take long for the drama to start on Celebrity Big Brother.  In just one week, we’ve heard more scheming and betrayal than we had during the first two months of Big Brother 19.  I guess that’s what happens when you cast people who actually want to play the game.  Who would have guessed that a bunch of minor celebs would be the houseguests to finally play Big Brother?

Last night, Chuck was voted out and James was saved.  The final vote was 7-1.  Why was Chuck the one voted out, despite James being the original target? Shannon, very perceptively, realized that, if Chuck stayed, he would be more loyal to Omarosa and Keisha than to her.  (She also figured out that Omarosa and Keisha have a side alliance.)  So, she arranged for everyone in the house to vote to keep James.  The only person she didn’t tell was Omarosa.

(There’s some confusion as to whether or not Shannon told Metta.  Metta told Omarosa that he thought he was voting for who he wanted to keep as opposed to who he wanted to vote out.  Since Metta doesn’t seem to have ever watched Big Brother before, that’s always a possibility.)

Anyway, Omarosa was not happy at all.  Much as she did on The Apprentice, it didn’t take her long to bring race into it, going as far as to say that Shannon is leading the “white girl alliance.”  With everyone in the house now planning to take out either her or Keisha with the next eviction, we can expect to hear a lot more of this.  Myself, I think it comes down more to nobody trusting Omarosa because Omarosa is best known for being a villain on other reality shows.  Omarosa’s trademark is betraying alliances so why would anyone want to let her become too powerful?

They played for HoH last night and … ROSS WON!  It would appear that Ross is planning on sticking with Shannon and he will be nominating Omarosa and Keisha later today.   Apparently, he’s going to present it as being a house decision, which it kind of is.

In other news, it would appear that Omarosa was “injured” during the HoH competition and demanded to be examined by the medical team.  (I assume that we’ll see what happened on Sunday’s show because the feeds were down for the HoH comp.)  Also, Metta is once again saying that he wants to leave the house.  Whenever he tells anyone that he wants to leave, the feeds immediately go to fish but it’s pretty obvious that Metta wants out.

Nominations are later today!  Unless something huge happens, it’ll be Keisha and Omarosa.
