The Daily Bongo
Thursday, November 24, 2016 -- Morning
Dire DaysI haven't had a chance to watch the weekly episode yet, but it's dire days in the BB house. Justin won the last care package by default. So Morgan put Jason and Kryssie on the block. Jason won the veto, so Shelby had to go on the block in his place, and unfortunately, Jason and Justin voted her out. That leaves us with disgusting, whiny Kryssie, obnoxious, whiny, Jason (who has said things worse than Paulie in the BB house, but without the uproar--why?), lame Justin, and Morgan. Since we are at final four, there will be two competitions. Jason already quickly won the first, and he gets to save someone, which will probably be his cohort in disgust, Kryssie. Then it will be down to Morgan and Justin to compete in the final competition with the loser going home. I am just thoroughly disgusted because I really dislike Jason and Kryssie and the way they have acted in the house, and it looks like they will get rewarded. I'll try to watch the episode soon, but it will be hard with Thanksgiving this week. The finale is December 1.
Thursday, November 17, 2016 -- Afternoon
Down to Final FiveI have been sick with flu this week, so I did not watch the BB OTT show last night, even though it was on at 8 PM Eastern. The show started with the four new Whitney alliance members sobbing. Danielle wanted to show Justin that she was loyal to him. Kryssie tells Danielle that she made the right move. Morgan said that seeing Alex walk out when Morgan knew that it was Alex's biggest dream. She and Shelby thought that it was stupid of Kryssie to keep in a bigger target.
Time for the HOH competition. It's a cool one, where the house guests have to line up mirrors to reflect a laser that will ultimately hit a target. They have 20 minutes to complete the puzzle. If you don't finish in 20 minutes, you are disqualified. The fastest time gets HOH. Jason is first. As you put the mirrors in, you have to twist the stands to angle them. Morgan's first thought is to get all the mirrors on the board, and then to rearrange them. Morgan is having trouble finding the solution. Big Kryssie is next. When she puts the mirrors in, she really manhandles the mirrors and stands. Justin is next. We know that he really doesn't try to win any competition. Justin times out. Shelby is last. Shelby tries to adjust her mirrors, but she notices that one of them won't stay in place. It keeps on moving up. Shelby realizes that one of her mirrors is broken. Danielle gives the results. Kryssie was 15:05 minutes. Morgan is 12:49 seconds. Jason's time is 8:14 seconds. At the 7 minutes mark, Shelby's mirror was obviously broken, so she and Jason will have to do a play off. Jason says that he will try to stay positive. It's a new puzzle with a different solution. Shelby is having issues adjusting the mirrors, but she keeps on. She gets the target, and then it is Jason's turn. As Jason said, he was able to steal Shelby's HOH the previous week, and he wanted to do the same this week. Jason can't believe that he didn't notice the solution all along. Time for the solution. Shelby had 4:03. Jason had 9:52 so Shelby is HOH! Shelby is more concerned about how she gets to the end. Jason thought it could have been his HOH.
Shelby hopes to keep Morgan safe, and she's happy there is not care package this week. Jason realizes that it's every man for himself. Jason is beating himself up over the loss. Jason tells Danielle that they have to make another deal with Shelby and Morgan. Like they will buy that again. Shelby and Morgan realize that they want Danielle to be out so only Justin can get the care package because Danielle is a bigger threat in the game. At nighttime, Jason and Danielle talk about making a deal with Shelby. Jason wants to make Danielle a target, and he wants Danielle to think that he is going to be on Danielle's side. Jason thinks that Shelby wants to hear Justin's name as a target. Jason wants to make sure that if he can't save himself, he's going to make Danielle a target. Jason says that they are all in pairs. He is in with Danielle, Justin with Kryssie, and Shelby with Morgan. The plan is to take Morgan out. Shelby calls Jason on how Jason made a deal with them twice, and that twice Jason was cruel about it. Shelby says that he knows Jason is a liar. Shelby is targeting Danielle. Then Justin goes to talk to the girls. Shelby says that if she takes out Danielle, she is guaranteeing Justin a care package. Shelby says that she hopes Justin realizes that Justin sees they are on his side. Justin is happy because he really only likes Jason and Kryssie. Shelby tells Justin that it is his time to make a huge game move.
Now that Justin is on their side, they have to convince Kryssie. Shelby tells Kryssie that it is pairs and that Jason is in with Danielle. Kryssie realizes that Danielle instigated the most drama. Shelby explains that Kryssie is taking herself way further if they get rid of Danielle. They all say they will take down the American Nominee, regardless of who it is. The four call themselves the Jambalaya gang.
Jason goes to Justin and asks if Justin made a deal with the girls. Justin says no. Justin doesn't want Jason to be blindsided. Justin tells them that the mission is not for Jason to go. Justin says that the girls and he want Danielle gone. Time for the safety ceremony. In the first ceremony, Shelby makes Justin and Kryssie safe to show her loyalty. Danielle realizes that it's a dumb move for Shelby to put both her and Jason on the block. Danielle says that she hopes Morgan is on the block, and that Danielle does not go hom. Justin says that they have to win veto. Danielle cries because she doesn't know how Justin gets so lucky.
Justin goes upstairs to the Shelby and Morgan with a cup to get wine. Danielle can't respect that Justin is doing anything to save himself. Duh! That's the game. Of course, Morgan is saved in the second safety ceremony. Shelby says that she targeted them because they fooled her once shame on them, fool her twice, shame on her. They wonder who America is going to nominate. Danielle says that Shelby better hope that Danielle doesn't win POV. Danielle calls Justin a traitor. Danielle is sorry that she did not send Justin home. Justin says that it will be better when Danielle is gone. Jason tells Justin that Danielle is calling him a traitor. Justin says that Danielle can say whatever she wants to say. Justin says that he can tell the difference between shit and glitter.
Shelby is going to remind Justin and Kryssie that Jason is going to try to sway them. Shelby tells Justin that Jason was throwing Justin under the bus. Shelby tells Justin that if Jason does not win the next HOH, they are final four.
Time for America's Nominee, and it is Morgan. Morgan is trying to figure it out. She thinks America may want her to play harder. Jason says he looks like a bunny on Easter next to the two strong girls. Danielle is happy about the nomination because she thinks Morgan will go home. Morgan is not sure if Kryssie and Justin will vote out Danielle if she is still on the block with Morgan. Shelby and Morgan realize that one of them have to win veto. Kryssie did not think America would have nominated her. Justin says that he only trusts Kryssie. Kryssie is hoping to get Justin to trust Jason. Justin says that he never threw one of his friends under the bus. Justin says his social game have gotten him this far. Justin goes off to cook banana crepes. The POV is played individually. They have to build a path of dominos through gates, choosing the correct answer in the gate. They have to get the dominos to fall when the push the domino on the Start pad, and it must go all the say to the Finish. If it does not, they can reset, but the path has to be through the correct answer to three questions. There is a three minute penalty if they go through the wrong gate, but successfully make the dominos fall.
- In which competition were more veto shot attempted? Veto for Sale or Perfect Shott
- Which past Big Brother houseguest with with you the longest? Paul or Jeff
- Which competition lasted longer? Balance of Power or Veto Vault
In the bathroom, Morgan talks with Kryssie about keeping in with Jason. Morgan figures that if she tells Kryssie her secret that Kryssie will work with her. Morgan tells Kryssie that Alex was her sister. Kryssie has no reaction. Kryssie is really ugly, and she does not believe Morgan. As Kryssie says, obviously Morgan underestimates her intelligence because Kryssie sees right through Morgan's lies. Kryssie actually really does believe that Morgan is lying about Alex being her sister. What a fricking dim bulb!!!
Time for the veto meeting. Shelby vetos Morgan. Morgan wanted to tell the pair on the block that they should have taken the final five deal. Danielle is torn on whether to fight to stay, or if she should just go home because she misses he son and has so much to go home for. Danielle says that she wanted to play the game since she was 10-years-old. Danielle feels like she might be ready to go. Bye-bye!
Time for the live eviction. Danielle says that it is very emotion for her, and she adores them all. Jason says he misses everyone and sends love to CBS. Time for the vote.
- Justin evicts Danielle
- Kryssie evicts Danielle
- Morgan evicts Danielle

Second Part of the Double Eviction: aka CryfestCBS split the on demand episode for the double eviction into two parts. This is what happened in the second part. Shelby tells Alex about being a lawyer, and Alex and Morgan tell how they are sisters. Shelby and Morgan cry after Alex leaves, but they have to keep on working.
The house guests learn that it is a double eviction. The HOH competition involves studying a BB shopping network. Rachel Riley comes in to host the HOH competition. The competition will have seven questions. They get one point for each correct answer. They all get the first question right. They all get the second one right too. Justin gets the third question wrong. They all get the fourth question right. Question five is false, and they all get that. They all get the sixth question right. Now it's time for the final question, which they all get right, so it is a four way tie. In the tie breaker, they have to do math. Danielle got the tie breaker, so she is HOH. As she said, she has come far from being the first person on the block.
The Late Night Jamboree celebrated while Morgan and Shelby cry. They say they should not roll over. Shelby says whoever stays needs to stay positive. Then Morgan got the care package. She got the veto, and she also gets to use it to save a person. Danielle complains about how Shelby and Morgan are celebrating. Like Danielle and Jason didn't dance and celebrate all the time--and like they weren't celebrating just a few minutes earlier.
Danielle goes to talk with Morgan and Shelby. Danielle says that she knows the girls may not trust her. Danielle says that the only person she wants to keep is Jason. Shelby says that Kryssie is not the person someone takes out in a double eviction. Although Shelby and Morgan want Justin and Jason, it will be Justin and Whitney.
Danielle saves Shelby, Jason, and Kryssie. Justin and Whitney are on the block. Danielle cries because she doesn't want either to go. Boo-hoo! Jason, Kryssie, and Danielle cry and have a pity party. Whitney, the flipper, is believed to have flipped back, so the threesome decide to get rid of Whitney. Whitney expects to go home. Justin, rightly, says that he would be the one to go because it makes sense. At the veto ceremony, both Justin and Whitney say whatever. Danielle wants Shelby and Morgan to vote out Whitney. Morgan and Shelby try to explain that Justin is a bigger target, and the double veto is the time to take out Justin.
Time for the second eviction. Justin just says nonsense stuff. Whitney just cries and says she is a hot mess. Justin hugs her to console her. Time for the vote:
- Morgan evicts Justin
- Kryssie evicts Whitney
- Shelby evicts Justin
- Jason evicts Whitney
At the end of the episode, we got to see the Julie Chen/Whitney interview. Whitney said that she has a love/hate relationship with Big Brother because it is such an emotional rollercoaster. Whitney said that she knew she was always at the bottom of the ball smasher alliance. Julie reminded Whitney that Whitney was at the bottom of the other alliance too. Whitney said that she and Justin had been close throughout the game. Whitney calls Justin one of her best friends in the house. Whitney also said Kryssie was a really close friend. Whitney hesitates over being friends with the ball smashers. Whitney could not guess who the two siblings in the house were. She guessed Shelby and Jason. Whitney could not believe that Alex and Morgan are sisters. Whitney feels so stupid for not getting it. Whitney does not want to believe Julie. Whitney was completely blown away. Whitney's final thought was that she did not regret going into the BB house, and she is satisfied and happy with the outcome.
Friday, November 11, 2016 -- Evening
First Part of the Double EvictionI knew that I would not be able to stay awake for the whole double eviction, so I'm watching the double eviction on demand on Friday; I have just been too busy for the extended episode. The episode started with Scott leaving. The goal is to pick off the other three ball smashers (sans Whitney) one by one. Whitney, meanwhile, while seems to hope to stay with the other ball smashers.
The HOH competition starts. It's a photo morphing game with the pictures of two house guests morphed into one picture. The house guests have 30 minutes to figure it out and compete one by one to see who does it in the fastest time. Slow speaking Whitney is the first to go. Whitney is gong to look at the photos one by one, but just try to pick out features that stand out to her. Whitney gets three of the six wrong. The only one that Whitney is sure of is her face on the nerd. She winds up timing out and being disqualified. Alex recognizes Kryssie as the cheerleader, and thinks it's ironic that the person most against cliques made the game a whole big high school clique. Alex is almost out of time when she recognizes Monty eyes on Kryssie's face with the cheerleader. Alex's time is 27:04.57. Kryssie is next. I hate Kryssie. Kryssie only got two wrong at the start, and as she said, she was so confident that she would solve it, but she wound up being disqualified. As they told her in the HOH room, she would have had it at 10 minutes. Shelby was next, and her approach was to take it one picture at a time so she doesn't confuse things. She says that's the way she did it with the LSAT. Shelby got it right in the first try. 3:42 seconds. Morgan is next. She tries to look at all of them, which tells us Shelby's strategy was the best.
Jason is next, and he takes all the name plates over to the pictures. Then he uncovers them, and starts on the puzzles. Jason realizes that he is in big trouble. He also runs out of time because he had to do it in 3:42. Jason was shocked at Shelby's time. Justin realizes that there's no way he can beat the time. Justin was just putting up one name at a time. So Shelby is the HOH. Shelby hopes to keep Alex and Morgan safe this week.
Justin says that he knows Shelby will target him. Whitney says that she will keep Justin safe. Meanwhile in the storage room, Morgan, Alex, and Shelby celebrated so loudly that everyone in the house could hear them. Whitney was not invited. Alex, Morgan, and Shelby say that they have to keep Whitney close. No one tells the ball smashers that they can be heard throughout the house. In the HOH room, the ball smashers talk about pulling in Whitney. Shelby realizes that they still need Whitney. Shelby wants to take out either Jason or Justin. Shelby doesn't want to tell anyone else because she doesn't want the care package to go to either one of them. Well, of course, the care package goes to Jason.
Jason got the co-HOH. Jason gets to share all the perks. He gets to name one of the nominees. I can't stand Jason either. I'm not a fan of Jason or Kryssie. Shelby has to change up her game plan. Basically, Shelby gets to save one person, then Jason saves one person. Danielle volunteers to go up so she isn't America's nominee, because if she came off, there would be no replacement.
Shelby is trying to figure out if Jason will work with her, because she wants to keep her people safe. Jason claims that he wants to get rid of Danielle. So the only option as Shelby's nominee is Whitney. Jason claims that he is going to put up of his players, and Shelby will put up one of hers. For the first safety ceremony, Shelby saves Morgan, and Jason saves Kryssie. For the second ceremony, Shelby saves Alex, and Jason saves Justin. That leaves Danielle and Whitney on the block. Shelby says that since she could only save two, she could not save Whitney. Whitney realizes she is at the bottom of the list. Jason thinks that he is playing a mind game. I think this is really stupid. They could only save two people. It's not that they really "nominated" their own side. Jason says that this is going according to plan so Jason can backdoor Alex. I think it sucks that Shelby lost her HOH, but things will be okay in the end.
Time for America's nominee, and it's Alex. I really hate Kryssie, who looks so smug. Time to pick the veto player, and Shelby picks Alex's name. Alex chooses Morgan. Alex knows that Morgan will play for her. The odds appear to be in the ball smashers favor, but nope.
Time for the veto competition. They have to load two balls in a clear tube. They have to cross a balance beam. They to put 10 balls in a tube on the other side. Once they have two balls in a tube, they have to cross the other side to lock it. Dropping a ball or touching the ground takes all the balls out of the tube. They have three tubes on the other side. Alex is an ex-gymnast, but she can't balance the two balls. Whitney had to reset because she didn't cross back on the beam. No one seemed to know they had to go back on the balance beam. Shelby locked the first 10 balls. Alex was second. How did Jason wind up winning this? Whitney and Morgan were having issues getting the first tube filled. Danielle was the first to lock the second tube of balls. Shelby had to reset her second whole tube because she ran across the grass after filling the second tube. Jason wound up winning. It sucked, but what can you do. I really hate Jason. And I hate Kryssie. Whitney is happy because Alex will be leaving. Alex realizes that it is a worse case scenario.
Jason and Danielle dance and celebrate. Jason is really pleased with himself because Danielle is coming off the block, and Morgan is going up. Shelby and Morgan overhear Whitney telling Justin that they should have a celebretory dinner. The other three ball smashers overheard it. Morgan goes down to ask Whitney what they were celebrating. Morgan notes in the DR that Justin stopped being a have not a few days earlier. Whitney realizes that the gig is up. Well, Whitney will be going home right after Alex, so good for Whitney.
Morgan, Alex, and Shelby talk to Jason about how they know that Whitney flipped on them. The ball smashers try to convince Jason to get rid of Whitney. Jason claims that he is going to ponder their plan. Jason realizes that he gave the girls a glimmer of hope, and he tells his side so they all plot to torture the girls. I really hate Jason. Jason says that the stars have aligned, and Jason claims that he is going to put up Justin. The three girls celebrated because they thought there was hope. Jason plans that Danielle and he go up to torture the girls even more by making a fake alliance with the girls. I really hate Jason and Kryssie. Jason feels like they are finally getting what they deserve. Well, I can't wait for Jason to get what he deserves. In the POV ceremony, Jason takes Danielle down, and he puts Morgan up. Morgan then calls out Jason about bringing up a final five deal. Jason whispers that everyone knows. He is really a jerk. Morgan says that she is going to be stuck in a house with the horrible crowd that farts and burps on everything, and popping each others zits. AS Justin goes to leave, he laughs and says suckers. Morgan then called out Whitney on the celebratory dinner. I think Kryssie and Jason are shit heads. Whitney then says she has a relationship with Justin and Krystie. Shelby calls Whitney on not knowing Kryssie's name. Jason tells them that Alex is going home. Not to worry! Whitney will leave next.
Time for the eviction. Whitney goes first. Alex calls them hypocritidiots. Jason and Kryssie act smug. Morgan says that she's happy that Kryssie hasn't quit the game as Kryssie keeps on saying she will. The vote:
- Kryssie evicts Alex
- Justin evicts Alex
- Danielle evicts Alex
We then saw an exit interview with Julie Chen and Alex. Alex called them hypocritidiots. Which are hypocrites and idiots, and that describes the whole other side. Alex said it killed her that she isn't there to be in the house to compete for her friends. Alex thinks that America doesn't like her. Actually, that isn't true. Alex thought that she was evicted because Morgan and Whitney did not get a care package. Alex admitted that outside the house, the sisters aren't close. Alex said that they couldn't play on opposite sides because they just couldn't get along with the other side. Alex now feels she has a better bond with her sister. Alex said she did believe Jason because she didn't have any other option. She just didn't have any other choice. Alex thinks that she will be besties with Jason outside the house. Alex said that the other ball smashers always knew that Whitney would flip on them. Alex thinks Jason might have the best shot if she gets to the end. Alex thinks if Shelby can, she could win.

Scott LeavesLast night's episode started with the fall out from Neeley going home. I really dislike Kryssie, and I hope that she goes home next week, please! Kryssie is furious that Scott is still in the house because Scott is the worst person ever. This has just been game on Scott's part. Meanwhile the ball smashers celebrated.
Jason said reprimands Scott because Neeley heard Scott telling the ball smashers that he would make Danielle's life a living hell. Neeley starts yelling at Scott and the ball smashers because Scott has been playing the game. Danielle is upset, and Kryssie cries because "this is all just a game" to the other side. Um,yeah! It is a game!
Danielle says that the way Scott applauded Neeley. Jason reprimands Scott, and Scott says did he really do that, and Jason admits that Scott didn't. Scott says that Jason has been mean to Shelby all along. Jason said that he was mean to Shelby because it was personal, not a game. Danielle starts screaming at Scott that Scott is a disgusting person and that Danielle has been bullied. Boo-hoo!
The HOH competition is based on baseball cards on the memory wall that everyone has to study. Shelby was upset tht she wasn't the star of any of the cards. Everyone comments on Justin eating pizza while Morgan styles his hair. The game is a true false game. Scott admits that he has been chewed out by the other side for the last 10 minutes so Scott has to win. Danielle says the same thing. Scott, Alex, and Shelby are out on the first question. Jason cheers because Scott is out. I am not fan of Jason, Danielle, or Kryssie. It's all up to Whitney and Morgan. Morgan is out in the second question. With the next question, Justin and Jason are out. it's down to Whitney and Danielle. Whitney gets it wrong. Danielle changes her answer several times, but finally settles on false and gets it right. Whitney cries that it was a horrible feeling to be so close, yet so far away. Scott comments how every time he has a fight with someone, that person winds up as HOH.
Danielle is ready to get down and dirty. Kryssie worries about America. She is terrified for herself, which she should be. Scott tells the ball smashers that he thinks he is going to have to go out this week. Danielle says that she is not going to nominate Scott because her issues with him are personal, and she does not want to do something emotional. Danielle thinks that Alex is the person to put up and get out. Kryssie thinks that Whitney will work with them. Which it seems she might.
Time for the care package. Shelby wins it. Shelby gets to prevent three house guests from voting. Danielle is so disheartened. She has a pity party and cries. Boo-hoo! Danielle and the others think the ball smashers are disgusting because the ball smashers celebrate the care package.
While the others talk, Justin goes into the other room to dance. The others are boring, so I can understand him leaving the sorry group. Danielle saves Kryssie, Justin, and Jason.
Alex talks to Danielle that she knows Alex might be the target. Alex says that the house division can't last much longer. Alex tells Danielle that instead of attacking each other, they should work together because they are both big female targets. Then Shelby goes to talk to Danielle. Shelby thinks that they will be good against each other in the final three. Shelby says that she has to take away the votes of Justin, Jason, and Kryssie. Danielle thinks that Shelby should go up to eliminate her vote.
Danielle and Scott talk strategy, and Danielle tells Scott that she wants to keep him, and promises to take Scott off if he is America's nominee. Scott says that his strategy is to make is seem like they are enemies. Scott tells Danielle that Alex is the only person that he will not turn on.
Whitney is really worries. Scott and Morgan are saved, and then Danielle saves Alex. That leaves Shelby and Whitney. Shelby knows that she can use the care package to keep herself safe. Shelby thinks the ball smashers are up against each other to turn them against each other. The four ball smashers talk. She thinks it's because the other side wants the girls to turn on each other. They promise not to turn on each other.
Justin and Whitney vibe together, which means that Justin can work with Whitney, and they get along. Time for America's nominee, which is Scott. Scott thinks it sucks because it means someone from their side goes home. Kryssie threatens to kiss everyone in America. Disgusting! Time to pick someone for veto. Whitneys' name is picked, and she selects Justin. Jason is the other name selected. Jason thinks that America nominated Scott because they made a mistake last week. I really hate Jason and Kryssie. Jason doesn't think America hates them. Maybe not, but I hate Jason and Kryssie.
Time for the veto competition. There's a lame video about a girl murdering her whole family on the spot where the BB house is.
In the veto, they have to complete one at a time. They have to search for items that the murdered girl left behind: her hair brush, her rattle, and her doll Abigail. The player who find the items in the shortest time wins the POV. They have the house made up like a haunted house with people jumping out at them. Scott was the first to go through the house. Justin wants to find the veto, but coming from New Orleans, the ghosts are freaking him out. Shelby is next. It seems really scary. Shelby tells them that if they touch her, she will fucking sue them. Shelby has trouble finding the box to put the items. Jason tries to talk to the ghosts in a funny voice. Whitney is next, and she wants to get the veto so she is not up with Shelby and Scott. Whitney becomes confused over whether fastest is a word. Danielle wants to win the veto too.
Time to find out how everyone did. Justin had 1:51. Scott had 2:08. Shelby had 5:06. Jason had 2:14. Whitney has 4:52. Danielle has 1:22. Danielle went through fast! Danielle wins the veto. Scott thinks that Danielle will use the veto on him, which she does not.
Danielle realizes that she has to break her promise to Scott. Jason says that they have to show loyalty to Whitney so she shows loyalty to them. Whitney tells the other sides that if Danielle wants Whitney to vote out Scott, she will. Whitney feels that Scott is not a ball smasher. Whitney is not telling the ball smashers about Danielle saying she would use the veto on Whitney.
Time for the veto meeting. All three tell Danielle to do what she wants. Danielle saves Whitney and puts up Morgan in her place. Scott is shocked that Danielle took down Whitney. Scott believes that Whitney cut a deal with Danielle. Morgan cries, and Alex says that Whitney flipped against them. Alex says they can't trust Whitney. They all realize that Whitney had to have made some sort of deal. Shelby says that they only have each other, and they have to vote out Scott. It will only be Alex and Whitney voting.
Time for the live eviction. Shelby tells people to rescue a dog. Scott thanks everyone for making his dream come true. Morgan says that she knows it's a hard decision. Shelby eliminates Jason, Kryssie, and Justin's votes. Alex, Whitney, and America evict Scott.
Scott is evicted. He claps at himself. Scott is a good player, and he congratulates everyone and wishes them a good game. Scott is a decent kid.
