Big Brother Update: Danielle and George on the block

Here is a quick run down of what happened on tonight’s episode of Big Brother All Stars.

Will got his beloved trampoline, for which he willing put the house on slop for a day. He and Mike Boogie get into it and start bouncing around all over the place. It’s a miracle neither of them killed themselves, Will almost went over the net a few times.

Danielle and Erika get to talking and agree they go to the final two together and if either of them wins the Power of Veto, they will take Chicken George off the block and put Will up in his place.

Will reveals that he has an obsession with Neil Patrick Harris, known better as Doogie Howser. Who just happens to be the secret sant and Wills christmas in August present. Neil Patrick Harris gives Chicken George a santa costume, he dresses up and passes out the christmas presents. Neil decided to join Chill Town on the trampoline and does crazy flips, makes Chill Town look sick, good work doogie!

George tells Chill town a story of how he was hit by lightening. Hehe, explains a lot. I love you George! You rock!

Erika and Boogie chat. Erika tells boogie she’ll kick his ass if he is just playing her. DUH! Wake Up Erika! You’re getting WORKED like child labor in a Nike plant.

Rock Star Supernova: Viewer’s Choice Song Selection

Tonight’s Rock Star Supernova song selection show was a special one, seeing the Viewer’s choose the songs that the Rock Stars will sing for tomorrow’s show.

Tonight’s show also saw Dilana having a mental break down, smashing a wine glass on the ground and catching Magni in the head with a stray piece of glass, giving him a pretty nice cut. As well as all the Rock Stars trying their best to look hardcore in a photo shoot, some fail miserably (Magni), other started off rough and rocked it (Dilana) and others looked like they were posing for Playgirl (Lukas).

The Rock Star Supernova Viewer’s Choice Song Selection came down to the following songs:

  • Lukas – “Lithium” by Nirvana
  • Toby – “Rebel Yell” by Billy Idol
  • Magni – “I Alone” by Live
  • Storm – “Bring Me To Life” by Evanescence
  • Ryan – “Clocks” by Coldplay
  • Dilana – “Mother Mother” by Tracy Bonham

Tomorrow’s show should prove be a good one. I’m really looking forward to hearing Toby sing Rebel Yell, I think that song fits his voice and singing style perfectly and he should be able to rock it out hard. Storm singing Bring Me To Life should be really interesting too, I just hope she doesn’t butcher it.

Rock Star Supernova – Tuesday, August 29th @ 8pm EST on CBS.

Big Brother All Stars Update

The Emmy’s are still on and I’m watching them, so this is going to be a quick recap of tonight Big Brother All Stars episode.

Erika was the Head of Household.

The Legion of doom is pretty much broken up now that James is gone.

Danielle is still vowing to get rid of Will at all costs. “Will’s Ass Is Mine.”

Mike Boogie gets a game of Texas Holdem Poker started up. It was supposedly Janelle‘s first time playing Texas Holdem Poker and she kicked ass.

Chicken George was running out of the Big Brother house, through the back yard and belly flopping into the pool. It was actually pretty damn funny.

Janelle and Will are flirting it up big time in the pool. All a part of Dr. Will’s strategy, no doubt.

Erika tells Mike Boogie she wants to nominate Will and Janelle and Boogie is naturally trying to talk her out of it and get her to nominate Danielle.

Food Competition – Chicken George is jumping people to squeeze the juice of of their suits and Erika is riding Boogie like a cheap whore.

Results of the food competition:

Meat and Fish, Trampoline (whole house gets 1 day on slop as a result), Christmas in August (1 more day of slop), George gets a 1 week slop pass (Yay, food!), the entire household gets a 5 star dinner and they get alcohol (but give up the pool table).

Dr Will has a showmance with the backyard camera, too funny.

Will works on Erika to nominate Danielle, though Erika seems to buy into it she doesn’t nominate Danielle.

This weeks Big Brother All Stars nominee’s are: Janelle and Chicken George.

That’s all folks

TV Dilema

Wow, tonight sucks! Big Brother All Stars is on at 8:00pm PST tonight, and the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy‘s are on at the exact same time on a different channel. What am I going to do?!?!

I really need to get a VCR for events like this. I think I am going to have to watch Big Brother. I need to have a play by play on the show so I know what happens, what new alliances are being built or what alliances are blowing apart. As much as it pains me to say it, the Emmy‘s will be flipped to during Big Brother commericals and whatever I miss I’ll read on any one of a few hundred blogs tonight.

Damn TV people putting two things I want to watch on at the same time, the nerve!

Big Brother All-Stars Elimination: James Gets the Boot

George and James were both nominated for elimination on Tuesday’s episode of Big Brother All-Stars.

The voting begins:

Erika votes to eliminate James.
Dr. Will votes to eliminate James.
Danielle votes to eliminate
George.
Janelle votes to eliminate James.

James is eliminated 3 votes to 1.

James comes out to speak with Chenbot and takes his elimination very well, unlike Howie did last week. Side Note: I never noticed James had a lisp until tonight. James will be joining Howie and Marcellas in the Big Brother All-Stars Sequester House.

James is shown the farewell videos made by the other house guests and Danielle vows to take down the Chill Town alliance for eliminating James.

Head of Household Competition:

The game is entitled “but first” and the house guests begin standing in the middle of a 3 step staircase. The house guests are read 2 events with “but first” seperating them. They must determine if X did or didn’t happen before Y and then step up the stairs for a Yes/True or down the stairs for a No/False.

George and Janelle are knocked out first question.

Will and Danielle are knocked out on the second quetstion.

That makes Erika the new Head of Household.

At the end of the show Chenbot assembles the house guests and has a chat. It is revealed that Chicken George has lost 20lbs on his strict slop diet. The Chenbot also announces that Sundays show will be one weeks worth of shows combined and will see 2 house guests eliminated. Should prove to be interesting.

Rock Star Supernova Update: Patrice Eliminated!

Toby is picked to take to the stage and sing with Supernova. They sing another song from their forth coming album entitled “Be Yourself and 5 Other Cliches”. Toby‘s look, feel and sound seems to fit with the Supernova guys very well and the song is very catchy and certainly has potential to be the first single released on the album.

The interview clinic is shown, focusing on Dilana and her recent excursion into bitchyness and trashing of her fellow contestants. The crowd is not happy with the Dilana‘s answers at all and Dave Navarro is in the same boat, asking Dilana exactly “what the hell” she was thinking. Dilana gives a fluff answer and everyone feels better. Dave ask’s how Ryan feels about Dilana trashing on him and the other house guests and he takes the high road, while getting a few jabs in on Dilana in the process.

The original bottom three is announced again:
Patrice
Storm
Toby

Only one other contestant fell into the bottom three during the voting period:
Magni

Magni is the first up to defend his spot and he sings “Fire” by Jimi Hendrix while sporting a guitar and rocking out. Jason Newsted and Tommy Lee both LOVED it.

My Thoughts: This song was FANTASTIC. By far the best Magni has done the entire show, possibly even the best song of the show so far. The song was sung and executed perfectly and Magni’s performance was great. I really loved this song, can’t get over how good it was.

Patrice is the second to take to the stage and defend her position. She performs a version of “Middle of the Road” by The Pretenders. Tommy, Gilby, Jason and Dave Navarro don’t get a shot to throw any comments in on the performance.

My Thoughts: The vocals were so-so, as usual, the performance was so-so as usual, the entire thing was only so-so. Patrice doesn’t have a bad voice, but it’s not great and her performances never seem to be attention grabbing. She’s always been a kind of ho-hum contestant.

Toby‘s up next with his shot to defend himself and he does so by singing “Plush” by Stone Temple Pilots. No comments from Supernova on this one either.

My Thoughts: Very weak start, was worried it was going to suck and they he picked up his vocals and performance and really rocked it out. Toby is a born performer and does fantastic on stage. He finish the song strong and did well defending his spot.

Supernova is blown away that Toby is even in the bottom three, especially since they thought he was good enough to join them on stage to perform their newest song. Supernova let’s Toby go and sets it’s sights on the remaining two contestants, Magni and Patrice.

After a little group gossip and little to no thought, Tommy Lee drops the axe on Patrice and she becomes the 9th contestant axed from Rock Star Supernova.

Rock Star Supernova Preview:

At the closing of this weeks show it was announced that next weeks should would be a viewers choice show where the viewers get to pick the songs the contestants sing. To make your song selection, go to: rockstar.msn.com

Reality TV: Survivor Cook Islands features Segregated Teams

The geniuses at CBS have decided that the usual hype created over a new season of Survivor just isn’t good enough, so they had to change it up a bit for the Cook Islands addition. Apparently the newest addition of Survivor is going to feature 4 tribes, just like the last Survivor did, only these four tribes won’t be your average every day tribes, these four tribes are going to be created based on the race of the contestants. CBS made the official announced stating that the tribes for Survivor Cook Islands will be The African-American Tribe, The Asian-American Tribe, The Hispanic Tribe, and the kicker, The WHITE Tribe. I guess no one at CBS has ever heard of the word Caucasian? If you’re going to keep it as PC as possible, keep it PC across the board.

The best part though, get this, is that during an interview on The Today Show this morning, Survivor Host Jeff Probst said that the idea for a segregated survivor “actually came from the criticism that ‘Survivor’ was not ethnically diverse enough.” Does that just not sound right to anyone else? For some reason hearing the words “ethnically diverse” after stating that the show would feature segregated teams just doesn’t fit with me.

One thing is for sure, the fools at CBS certainly switched it up a bit to increase the PR for the newest season of Survivor, and boy did they achieve that goal, though they certainly didn’t do it in a very tasteful way. Then again, when have mass conglomorated TV networks EVER worried about being tasteful.

Rock Star Supernova Update

Patrice gets one of the original song selections and plays guitar to accompany it. Dave Navarro says he likes it, but she’d be better suited to solo work if that’s the kind of thing she’d like to sing. Tommy Lee says it’s a little happy for them [Supernova], but it could be slowed down, made heavier and could work. And I missed what Jason Newsted said because I was busy typing this. 😛

My Thoughts: I didn’t dig it. Patrice’s voice just isn’t strong enough and it wasn’t that impressive.

Magni sings Nirvana‘s classic “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. The crowd digs it, as usual, and Tommy seems to be getting into it pretty well too. Dave says he did an awesome job vocally and that Magni has great angst for his performances. Jason enjoyed it a lot and said the energy in the crowd was fantastic. Tommy asks why Magni didn’t use the guitar on this song and points out the fact that just because he picks up the guitar doesn’t mean he has to be stiff. Dave says he wants to see something broke up there this season.

My Thoughts: Not bad, but not great. It’s hard to cover a Nirvana song and it wasn’t that great a cover, not the right voice for it.

Ryan gets to sing the second original of the night entitled “back of your car” (I think?). Half way through the performance Ryan throws his guitar aside and rocks out on the mic. Dave wonders where the hell this Ryan came from and that it’s the most rocking he’s seen him. Dave asks what the hell happened to him and he responds, “I got laid dave!”. Tommy said it was the most comfortable he’s ever been on stage. Gilby Clarke says it was his best performance yet and that’s saying something with how good he’s been doing lately.

My Thoughts: I liked it. I haven’t been a big fan of Ryan, but he rocked it out tonight and did a good job, good work man.

Storm takes the stage to sing “Cryin'” by Aerosmith. The crowds loving it, of course, and Tommy’s singing along. Dave said it was “awesome” and “you did great” and said that singing this well is why he hated last weeks song so much. Dave tells her to take the corset off and she tells dave to “come over and take it, bitch!”. Gilby says it was good but he’s looking for something special. Jason says he really liked how she took the song and made it her own song.

My Thoughts: She completely rocked it. I didn’t think she’d be able to rock it but she did and she did it damn well. Very impressed with Storm this week.

Dilana steps up on stage and sings “Every Breathe You Take” by The Police. She’s looking sexy as always but the huge fake eye-lashes are not doing it for me at all. Supernova doesn’t look to be digging it to much, though Gilby’s swaying to the beat pretty well. Dave says he likes the eye-lashes (ug!). Gilby compliments her instincts and says she knows what to do no matter what kind of song she sings. Dave says she did a great job with the song. Jason wants to know why she was willing to run around naked to get this song and Dilana says its cause she hasn’t spoken to her mom in years and the song reminds her of her mother.

My Thoughts: Not bad, certainly not her best, I like her heavier stuff much better.

Toby takes to the stage to sing “Layla” by Eric Clapton. He’s belting out the chorus something fierce and the crowd is really digging it. Oh, off comes the shirt and into the crowd he goes, coming up with the other contestants and getting them all to stand up and spur on the crowd. Dave asks what the EVS written on his stomach stands for, toby says Aussie for “whatever!”. Dave also says he rocked it and he loved it. Tommy speaks for the ladies and says he’s sure they loved the performance, loud cheers follow, naturally. Gilby says he’s not a big fan of the change to the arrangement, but totally loved the performance.

My Thoughts: Certainly not his best vocal, but Gilby was dead on when he said the performance was great. One of the better performances of the season thus far. Even though the vocals lacked a bit for me too, the performance put it through the roof.

Lukas, last to take the stage, sings “All These Things That I’ve Done” by The Killers. LOL, Lukas stopped to fix his hair in the reflection of the guitarists guitar, Tommy seemed to get as big a kick out of that as I did. Dave says it was unbelievable, great job! Tommy says, two word “check please!”. Gilby says great job, but asks why Lukas turns his back to them so much and faces the band. Lukas says it’s because he wants to rock out and appreciate his band, not just the crowd.

My Thoughts: I love the original version of the song and I didn’t really dig this version. I’m a big Lukas fan and am sad to admit that I just didn’t feel it on this song. And, I agree with Gilby again, I don’t like him turning his back to the crowd, especially since the last time he did it he said it was because he had forgot the lyrics, bad move man.

Cheers
