Big Brother 9: Surly Joshuah Evicted, Adam Wins Head of Household

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, News,

Big Brother 9Not even a pathetically staged crying jag could save Joshuah from the chopping block on . House guests fed up with his scheming ways and, as I’ve written about before, his bottomless pit of anger against some of the women in the house sent the 25-year-old Texas advertising media buyer packing.

Joshuah was evicted by a vote of 3 to 1. Ryan, Sheila and Adam all agreed it was time for him to go. Fellow pariah “Crazy” James was the only house guest to throw Joshuah a bone but it wasn’t enough.

The only other big headline of the night: Adam is the new Head of Household.

Big Brother 9: Joshuah and James Nominated For Eviction

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, Features, News,

BB9 Nat's NominationsGod-loving, bikini and knee sock wearing Natalie is getting her smiley-faced revenge on house mates who plotted to oust her “soul mate” Matt. Last night Natalie, the Head of Household, nominated Joshuah and James for eviction. Surprisingly enough it was Joshuah’s first nomination, not bad considering how conniving and cruel he has been in the house thus far.

The show began with Natalie basking in the glory of her HOH win. She credited God and a kooky reliance on lucky numbers. Joshuah was shocked and embarrassed that Natalie beat him in a “mental” competition. Sheila hoped Natalie’s HOH win would bring her closure and vengeance for Matt’s eviction. Adam took Natalie’s win as a sign that there may really be a God, one who favors dim-witted bikini barista/slash carnival artists from The Beaver State.

Checking into the Big Brother House: Chelsia Gets the Boot

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, Features, News,

BB9 Chelsia OutIt has been a couple of weeks since I’ve written about . While I’ve watched most of the episodes in between then and now, I have to say it was getting to be a bit like my on-again, off-again relationship with the soap opera One Life to Live. I’ve missed years at a time and still know exactly what the storyline is.

A quick recap of the past few weeks: James was voted out then quickly voted back in when the house guests were given the chance to either bring back a mystery house guest (Alex) who had already been evicted or bring back James. In an odd turn of logic, even some of the guests who gave James the boot voted him back in within a few minutes. (I think they feared the mystery guest was either super-annoying Amanda or super-annoying Jen.)

Once James got back in the house, he and Chelsia began a reign of terror that ended with Boston roofer Matt evicted and his former “soul mate” daft Oregon bikini barista Natalie vowing revenge. Later, under-the-radar king Adam won Head of Household. He nominated Chelsia and James for eviction but James later won the Power of Veto and saved himself. Adam then put Sharon up as a pawn next to Chelsia bringing us to tonight’s eviction: Chelsia is out.

Big Brother 9: Ryan Nominates Two For Eviction

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Editorial, News,

Big Brother 9Mr. Nice Guy Ryan finds himself holding all the cards in the house, at least for a couple of days.

Last night, the 27-year-old college student from Ohio nominated first-timer Chelsia and previously evicted, then resurrected Sharon for eviction this coming Wednesday.

That was about the only interesting revelation in this particular episode. Again, I question why this show needs to be on three nights a week. Surely, with the writer’s strike over could come up with something better for their prime-time line-up?

Big Brother 9 Shocker: Allison Evicted, Ryan Now Head of Household

Posted by Jacci Lewis Categories: Prime Time, Reality, CBS, Showtime, Editorial, News,

BB9 Allison evicted Ryan HOHJust when it looked like this painful season of would dwindle away into ratings obscurity, the game got a major jolt of energy tonight: There will be no more couples.  It is now every man and woman for themselves.

The big headline of the night is that Allison was evicted and Ryan, her former partner, is now Head of Household. We were told yesterday that the house guests were to expect to hear a siren sometime today. When that siren went off, all of the house guests were to rush to the living room to hear the “important game-changing announcement.” Tonight, that siren went off just after Allison and Ryan were evicted as a couple. In the end, Allison, the drug company salesperson from Boston, went home and Ryan is now in charge of the house. We also learned that America gets to vote on which already evicted house guest (Jacob, Jen, Parker, Amanda, Alex or Allison) will get a second chance in the Big Brother house. You can vote for that as we speak on CBS.com.

Here Come the Newlyweds

Here come the newlyweds first episode

Throw , The Newlywed Game and those gag-inducing eHarmony commercials into a blender and what do you get? You get ABC’s new “romantic comedy” reality show, . ABC already airs Wife Swap, Supernanny and The Bachelor—did we really need yet another show to convince skittish singles to flee into the woods?

The premise of Here Come the Newlyweds is fairly straightforward. Seven recently married couples live together and compete for a nest egg worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. The season will air over six episodes. As ABC’s website claims, “Each couple faces a variety of mental and physical challenges which will test the love and passion they have for one another as well as their competitive spirit.”  At the end of each episode, one couple is voted out by the others. The last marriage standing wins the grand prize.
