There were many memorable moments from Big Brother 3
October 27, 2004: A Short Update
I've got apologize for my hasty exit from my Big Brother
coverage. The 82 days I spent covering BB left me so far behind in work,
personal matters, and just day-to-day ADLs. When the show was over I
intended to write my usual "Final Rant," and post a few updates, but I just
never got back to it.
Most importantly, I'd like to
thank everyone that made a donation to help with the expenses. I intend to
write to each of you, I still haven't made the time for it yet. For a while I
was "tardy," then "pretty damn slow," and now I think I've reached "bloody
If you've been reading the
The Big Brother
Message Board you already know everything I do. Diane moved in with
Scott, and chatted with her fans last week (read
it here) she's still friends with Drew. One of their fan sites has
some interview links
here. There's pictures from the wrap party
there's Cowboy sightings, Marvin's still complaining that Adria and Nat were in
a hotel while he tried to sleep with a light in his eye, Karen's posted
her cast caricatures on her web site
here, and there's so much more, but it's all been posted by BB fans on the
was a big day for Drew, his big debut on a network soap. If you saw him
act with Cowboy on the live feeds, you'll already have a pretty good idea of
what he's capable of. Drew played a reporter at a fashion designer's press
conference today on the CBS drama, "The Bold and the Beautiful."
I'm posting the clips in a high and low format. The lighting in Drew's
scenes wasn't good in this format, so he looks better in broadband.

September 21, 2004: The Big Day
8:00AM Shhhh They're sleeping. They had a really
restless night. Up and down, tossing and turning. Just nine more
hours to go.
10:15AM Tapping the monitor has no effect on them,
they are still asleep.
11:15AM BB played a science song about water
being a solid, a liquid, and vapor being a gas, then went into the theme song
from "The Greatest American Hero." They took a walk around the back
yard. Drew's nervous, Cowboy's just anxious.
Part 1[5 minutes]
2:00PM They've just been doing their ADLs, ironing clothes, cleaning
the house, packing up their stuff. It's almost over.
2:30PM Based on what Drew told Cowboy, they're going
to do things different thins year. When they leave the house, there will
be a crowd of 300 people outside. They also said the jury wouldn't be in
the house, they'd be pulling the keys out by themselves.
Screaming fans [10 minutes]
Of course the show recapped from from the start. You can recap from the
start too. You can recap all the way back to BB2 by using the archive menu
at the bottom of the page.
As Drew said, there were 300 fans and family members waiting
outside Julie's studio. Back at the jury house, we got to see the reaction
to Diane's arrival! Diane said, "I guess it was a good game move on
his behalf, but he may pay the price for it. We'll see what happens.
Marvin tells Diane she was played like spade. Adria jumps in to defend
Drew, "I don't want to sit here and talk about
Drew in that fashion because I think we have to look at it from a game
point of view." and Marvin jumps on Adria, "Why are you always defending Drew's
On the subject of how Cowboy played, Karen said, "
Cowboy crawled up into Drew's
behind and just sat there."
Marvin asks, " Well, do you think it's
possible to play the game
without lying to somebody?" Will says, "I think that it possible.
I think that as... it can take
you as far as it can. I think Nakomis played
very honorably. "
in Paradise [5 minutes].
jury gets to question the HGs. Will wants to know from Drew how he played
the game better than Cowboy. Natalie wants to know three things Cowboy did
to further himself in the game. Marvin asked
"Are you a racist liar, or a lying racist?" They didn't cut the boys any
slack, and IMHO, they both answered their accusers very well.
Yourself [8 minutes].
Julie says the jury will vote live! The jury is
assembled in Julie's studio. Each jury member has two keys, they'll put
the key of the person they're voting for in the box. Adria goes first,
then Natalie, Karen, Marvin, Diane, Nakomis, and Will. They each get to
make one last statement to the HGs before they put the key in the box.
Voting [5 minutes].
The Final Vote
Adria Voted For:
Diane Voted For: Drew
Natalie Voted For:
Karen Voted For:
Marvin Voted For:
Nakomis Voted For:
Will Voted For:
The Big Brother 5 reunion is first, before the votes are counted.
Julie introduces, Mike, Lori, Holly, Scott, and Jase. Last year,
everyone left the house angry, and had mended all their fences, not this group.
This reunion looked like it should have been hosted by Jerry Springer.
Reunion [6 minutes].
September 20, 2004: Tomorrow's the Big Day
here for the person you want to Win, Vote here for the person
you think will win.►
The boys got up around 11:00AM and were put on outdoor LD. While outside they could see a crane putting a large canopy in place. They wonder if it's for the wrap party (it might be).
I missed the end of the LD, I think it was short. At Noon they were
eating, Cowboy still playing cards. Cowboy's still talking about press
interviews and starting his sit-com.
They did laundry, Cowboy didn't have a fresh pair of
boxers for Tuesday, and Drew just wanted to kill some time to make the day go
While the boys were getting lunch together, they started
going through the cabinets and putting things they wouldn't need in the storage
room, and I realized it's almost over. It's a very strange feeling that I
get every year at this time. It's such an eerie feeling when you see a
shot of the house, empty and lifeless. It's like when you move out of a
place you've lived in for a long time. You may be moving to some place
better, but you look around at the empty house, and you feel all nostalgic,
thinking about all the good times you had. Cowboy took another long nap
today, and when he got up, he and Drew were talking about how this will be their
last night in the BB house. As anxious as they are to get out (I've heard
"I can't wait." a hundred times today), they admitted they'll miss the place,
and so will I.
wake up in the morning with my laptop in bed with me so I'd hear BB say "Good
morning house guests, it's time to get up and start your day." One night
Drew's snoring woke me, luckily it woke Diane too. She poked him in the
ribs and said, "You're snoring really loud." Countless nights of them
giggling and kissing until 3:00AM, gee, think that'll ever happen again?
Learning to listen to twinspeak, trying to find a feed that didn't have Holly's
voice, oh so many memories. Oh wait, now Drew and Cowboy are having a
farting contest. I can't wait for this to be over.
From 9:00PM to 9:30PM The guys got to watch some video of BB.
Between that and some music, live feed watchers have had another day of fish and
Drew was reading his Bible at 9:45PM by 10:00PM Cowboy was
in his bunk. By 10:40PM everything was quiet in the BB house. I
guess it works like the night before Christmas, the sooner you go to bed, the
sooner it'll be Christmas day and you can open your presents.
September 19, 2004: Today I Have Off, Right?
I thought I would have yesterday off, and it turned out to be
a very busy day. The boys were interrogated by the jury. We didn't
get to see it, but they talked about it afterwards. Early this morning I
posted an additional 45 minutes of audio clips from last night, so you might
want to check out yesterday's section, 3:00PM on. And today should really be
slow, please.... The clip,
Secret [43 minutes] was linked
to the wrong file, it's been corrected.
11:00AM Woulda Shoulda Coulda It's
wake-up time and the subject of conversation is all the things they had wished
they had said during last nights interrogation. At 11:30AM they're put on
an outdoor LD. .The LD was over soon, then it was nap time. Cowboy
thinks he may be running a fever, he's still not feeling well, Drew's just tired
2:30PM BB Gives Cowboy and Drew a game to play in
the BY, a combination of horseshoes and golf. Cowboy says he'd rather have
a porno movie on the plasma screen, Drew says, "Oh yeah, Jenna Jameson."
But alas, they don't play horseshoe golf, they don't watch porn, they take
6:45PM Nap time is over. BB has replenished
the propane supply for the BBQ grill, so they're
firing up the grill and having shish kabobs, baked potato, and corn on the cob.
Dinner isn't ready until 8:15PM, they sit down and Drew says grace, thanking the
Lord for the food and all the
opportunities they have been given. Cowboy tells a long story about his
paper route and how he delivered papers at two in the morning on New Year's day
with a fever.
Cowboy mentions a movie coming on at
9:00PM. He's pretended to have watched TV and movies in the BB house before, and
I've had to explain to feed watchers that he didn't really watch "CSI,"
or "Bonanza," it's a joke. But tonight, I think the joke's on
me. At 9:00PM we got fish, and I think they really are watching a movie
tonight. 9:40PM ˚°◦ FotH ◦°˚ is over, and the boys are on the putting green,
maybe BB just gave them music for a while.
At 11:00PM we were back to ˚°◦ FotH ◦°˚ . When the feeds
return, Cowboy's playing solitaire, and Drew's in the shower.
They're still talking about the jury up until bedtimes. Drew tells Cowboy
how upsetting it was to see Diane leave in shock the way she did, but he thinks
Diane is back at the jury house making out with Marvin. Drew wants
to see how Diane acts on Tuesday at the finale show. Will she be want to
be with him because he has the money and Marvin doesn't? By 1:15AM
September 18, 2004: The Jury Questions The Final Two
There's just two guys left in the BB house so there isn't
going to be anything to report. In the past BB has given the final two
some things to amuse themselves, but for the most part it's just two guys
hanging out in some empty trailers.
I'll still be
watching, but don't expect much until Tuesday.
Last night, after midnight, Drew and Cowboy are still up
talking. If he's telling the truth, we get a glimpse into Drew's thinking
that brought him to this point.
I really thought [22 minutes]
1:15PM They're still asleep! BB finally
wakes them by playing
Brad PaisleyI'm Gonna Miss Her.
2:20PM Outdoor LD
So who's Going to Win?
I give my opinion on this every year, and every year I'm wrong, so here's my
prediction for 2004: Diane's vote could go either way. When Drew put her
on the block, the week they voted out Marvin, she told Drew that if he ever
screwed her over he would not get her vote. She's got quite a temper, but
calms down quickly. Just for the hell of it, I'll give her vote to Cowboy.
Nakomis says she's not bitter, but when Julie asked about her
vote, she said she wouldn't vote for Cowboy. After being caught by Julie
in that moment of duplicity, I think she'll give her vote to Cowboy.
Why not? Drew is no one to her, she'd look good in the public's eye by
voting for her brother. Cowboy might give her the $22,000 she wants for a
house, but Drew wouldn't.
Karen really doesn't like Cowboy, calls him a
snitch and a sneak. She's also not a Drew fan, said it was like talking to
Bevis and Butthead. But I think she'd vote for the Butthead over the
snitch. I give her vote to Drew.
Marvin liked Drew, didn't like Diane. Drew voted out
Diane, I think Marvin will think that's pretty cool. Then there was that
question: "Marvin said the houseguest he would hate to discover he was
secretly related to is A: Holly B: Michael." Marvin picked Cowboy, he'd rather
be related to Holly. Marvin really doesn't like Cowboy, one vote
"Natalie said the person she most wants to maintain a
friendship with after the game is A: Michael. B: Drew." Natalie selected
Drew. Two votes Drew? Or will Adria prove they are two separate
people and vote for Cowboy? They were pretty close to both of them, and
Drew did put Adria up for eviction. One vote Drew, One vote Cowboy.
And then there's Will. Will couldn't take his eyes off
Drew, but Will's question, "Will said if he had to marry one houseguest, it
would be: A: Drew, B: Scott." Correct answer was "B " ?? Whoa!
What's up with that? Considering that Will has seen Scott's, err..
equipment, Will must really hate Drew, but I'm going with my gut here,
he'll vote for Drew.
So Drew wins by one vote. Now here's why I'm wrong
every year: I picked Allison last year. The jury was ready to give it to
Alison, and then they got to ask her questions. They found her to be cocky
and unremorseful, and they switched their votes to Jun. I think enough
votes are on the fence this year that these two guys will have to be very
careful what they say. Highlights from
last year's conclusion [20 minutes]
3:00PM Cowboy: "You think you'll vote this November?" Drew:
"Oh yeah, for sure." Cowboy: "So you're a Democrat?"
Drew: "No, Republican, my whole family is Republican, most of Ohio is
Republican." Cowboy, "That's what I am. I shoulda known, most lawyers, they
have money, they're Republicans."
BB GOP [6 minutes]
Cowboy and Drew Will Face the Jury Tonight at 8:00PM
(I really doubt this will be shown on the live feeds)
Drew pumps iron, Cowboy primps for the jury
7:50PM The jury will be late. Cowboy's in
the shower, Drew's in the cloud room talking to his reflection in the window.
He's practicing what he'll say to the jury. "I think that you really can't
judge the nominees by financial backgrounds. I think that any one of you
would want, and I know that if I were on the jury, I would want the person that
played the game the best. I think that I would like to stress to the jury
that you would look at how I played the game. I won HoH four times, nd
hopefully to you it shows that I didn't ride anyone's coattails to the end. I
hope that you respected how I played the game. I tried to keep my word
throughout the entire game and be honest with everyone as much as I could.
Unfortunately, it came down to the end yesterday where I had two promises with
two people that I had to pick between... , I was never scared to play as hard as
I could in competitions... "
At 8:30PM The producer, Alison Grodner, told the boys there'd
be an outdoor LD while the jury was assembled. With their freshly pressed
shirts, they went outside and played cards while they waited. They
both wished each other good luck.
Cards [1 minutes]
Drew was really impressed by the book,
The Purpose-Driven Life he's mentioned it often throughout his
stay in the BB house. He suggested to Scott that he read it, and told
Diane he'd buy her a copy. As he plays cards with Cowboy, he suggests it to him.
He tells him that you only have to read three pages a day. Another
book Drew recommends is
Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man's Soul
in which the author writes, "If Christian men are going to
change from a pitiful, wimpy bunch of "really nice guys" to men who are made in
the image of God, they must reexamine their preconceptions about who God is and
recover their true 'wild' hearts."
Books That Changed His Life [3 minutes]
9:10PM ˚°◦ FotH ◦°˚11:15PM
The Inquisition is Over! And the boys aren't
happy about some of the questions. They're most unhappy with Marvin who
accused Cowboy of being a racist and Drew for using Diane and voting her out.
Karen asked Cowboy why he voted out his sister. Adria sounded critical of
Drew [All this based on what Cowboy and Drew are saying, the inquisition wasn't
shown on the feeds.] They're both really surprised at the animosity
the Lovin' [31 minutes]
Midnight: Drew is really mad at Diane. He
said he won't be getting laid, "But Diane might. She might be with Marvin
right now. How can she call me a player? I wasn't going around kissing
every HoH. And she says she doesn't remember who she kissed. Well I
remember who I kiss." Drew says you can always tell when Diane is lying
because she says she can't remember.
Drew feels that Marvin is a hypocrite because after he was on
"The Young and the Restless" and saw all the girls giving him
attention, he told Drew that he should dump Diane when he gets out of the house
so he can enjoy all the girls he'll get with his fame. He was telling Drew
to use Diane now he's accusing him of doing just that.
Later, in a moment of brotherly bonding, Cowboy tells Drew
his deepest darkest secret [No, not the jock itch story again.]
Secret [43 minutes]
There's a lot more on this clip too. There's more jury talk, more of
Cowboy's life, and more about Marvin. They talked to 3:00AM. After a
while they got very repetitious. They spent a couple hours talking about
Marvin asking if they were racists, but Marvin was only given a couple minutes
to talk to them.
September 17, 2004: Drew Daniel & Michael Ellis: FINAL TWO!
I think tonight's show might be bigger and more exciting than
the finale. Tonight, Drew and Cowboy will square off in the final part of
the three part HoH contest. The winner of this HoH contest will vote off one
more HG, thus determining who the final two will be.
Drew told Cowboy he's going to throw the match so that he'll
win. Drew needs to do this so that he doesn't break his word to Diane whom
he promised to take to the final two. Drew tried to throw the first part
to Diane so he wouldn't be in this situation, and then Diane would do Drew's
dirty work and kick out Cowboy, but things didn't work out as planned.
If Drew wins HoH tonight, the resulting eviction will make
Evil Dr. Will and Danielle look like Mr. Rogers and Mother Theresa. I've
heard that a few viewers would even enjoy seeing Diane get kicked out, oh hell,
most viewers! So this should be big.

8:20AM Wake-Up Call After an hour of polite
conversation, they are put on outdoor LD where sacks out on a chaise, and Drew
naps in the hammock. Cowboy tells Drew about bull riding. Drew
didn't know that they put a strap around the bull's scrotum to make it buck. The
Cowboy's feelin' a bit poorly today. Then by 11:45AM, it's nap time
By noon the natives were getting restless. Diane
complaining she has to pee, Drew complaining that basketball would be better if
they'd let him cut the bottom out of a bucket. to make a hoop. Cowboy
is quiet!12:50PM LD is Over! 1:00PM During a fish break,
the HGs were told that tonight's show will be live, but BB will not tell them at
what time it starts. They consider their options of things to do, taking a
nap is the choice of Drew and Cowboy. 2:30PM The HGs were told they have three
hours until the live show begins. Drew and Cowboy remain a sleep, Diane
has showered and fixed her hair.
3:30PM We've had nothing but fish for an hour,
there was a brief return to the feeds, then fish again.
With just a half hour before show time, Drew is alone in the back yard reading
his Bible and praying.
Round One: Julie tells us that tonight we will see the final eviction, but
first, the last broadcast left three people in the backyard hanging on to
their keys in Earthquake portion of the HoH contest. Cowboy
helps Diane with her hair, and he's out. Then Diane and Drew have a
plan that Diane will win, but before Drew could throw the competition,
Diane let go of her key and fell off the column. IN the DR, Drew says, "Next thing
I know, Diane is
on the ground.
There's no way Diane just fell
off that thing.
Diane threw it tonight and I
For me, it was a huge surprise,
so that could really change
things for Diane." While Cowboy is in the DR, Drew tells Diane that this changes
things, the plan is different now. The
night the Earth moved [7 minutes].
Round Two: There are two giant strands
of DNA in the backyard. It's a puzzle with questions, like: "Who put
the salt in the margarita glass during the Margarita Madness Challenge?"
You then slide the correct HG's photo along the strand of DNA. Right
answers get a bell, wrong answers get a buzzer.
Michael finished first. Diane cries
alone in the house saying, "You're definitely going down Cowboy, you're
going down hard. You don't deserve to be in this game." Drew
and Cowboy knock knuckles in a salute to the four horsemen and reaffirm
their promise to take the other to the final two.
what's in my gene pool [7 minutes].
Where are they now? The first evicted
HGs, Mike, Lori, Scott, Jase and Holly are featured is a segment about
life after Big Brother. Mike has no regrets and isn't
recognized in public. He thinks Diane's played a smart game.
Lori's also happy with her choices, she got the $10,000 and split to enjoy
her life. Scott's happy too, now even more people ask him for his
autograph. He holds a grudge against Jase, and they haven't talked
since the show. Jase and Holly are together and are a happy couple.
Jase still harbors some resentment against Scot, but it doesn't matter
'cause he's got Holly.
who? [5 minutes].
Round Three: Is a simple Q&A
contest involving the opinions of the jury members.
Question one: "Karen said her
biggest regret was: A: Not
breaking up Drew and Diane or B:
Voting out Adria instead of
Michael. The correct answer is A. They both got it wrong.
Next question: "Natalie said the person she most
wants to maintain a friendship
with after the game is A: Michael. B: Drew." The correct answer is B.
Drew gets one point.
Next question, "Marvin said the
houseguest he would hate to
discover he was secretly related
to is A: Holly B: Michael." The correct answer is B.
Drew now has two points.
Michael has none.
Next question: "Nakomis said the person whose
behavior shocked her most was A:
Michael, B: Jase." The correct answer is: A, Drew still has
the lead by two points. Next question. Adria said, out of all the
houseguests, the best manipulator was A: Diane or B: Will. The correct answer is A.
The score is currently Drew with
three, Michael with two.
"Will said if he had to marry one
houseguest, it would be are: A:
Drew, B: Scott." Correct answer: B
Julie: "Congratulations, Drew.
You are the final and most
powerful head of household.
Now, Drew, you have a very big
decision ahead of you.
Right now you are guaranteed
Who you choose to evict could
determine whether you win or
lose this game."
3 [6 minutes].
Drew Casts His Vote! Then comes the moment we're all
waiting for, Drew has to choose between Cowboy and Diane. Julie: "Before you make your decision, I'd like to give the two nominees a chance to plead their case as to why they should be by your side on finale night. Michael, why do you think you should remain in the
Big Brother house?"
I know you got a tough decision tonight. We had a word since day one and I know that and
I know that you are close to her, so whatever decision... I love you. You're a brother to me."
Diane: "Drew, I wish I had something great to say to you, but
I care about you more than anything in the world. You know that, and whatever decision you make, I respect you if you vote to evict me today,
I would still respect you and care about you as much as I do. You are the reason I'm still here. I want to you know that. I want to thank you for that, period."
Drew: "All right, guys, obviously this is a very tough decision for me. I have to choose between a girlfriend and a best friend. This is the hardest decision
I have to make in this house right now. I want you guys to know this week I've had to keep both my words to you. Right now I'm going to shock one of you but I'm sorry. I hope you understand, this is just a game and just strategy, okay. Right now
Diane, you and I had a talk last night and you told me about some things that if you and
I were here in the final two that scared me, so in terms of numbers with people on your side in the jury so at this time, I choose to evict you,
"It's official, Diane, you have been evicted from the Big Brother house."
Julie: "Diane, tonight you were evicted by Drew. What is your reaction to him voting you out?"
Diane: "Shocked. I'm very, very shocked but I understand why he did it, for strategy purposes, I guess. I don't know."
Julie: "What do you mean? What was the conversation that he referred to right before he evict you?"
Diane: "Apparently, I take it that he thinks that the jury would vote to give me the money instead of him, obviously, so and that's why he put me out, and
I don't blame him. I don't remember saying that at all."
Julie: "Are you saying he made it up?"
Diane: "No I'm thinking he just knew it. He's smarter than I am, so he probably counted the numbers and knew what he was getting into because,
I don't know."
Julie: "He really thinks... you think
Drew really thinks he can win against Michael and not you?"
Diane: "Drew can win against Michael. I think he knows that. It was in his best interest to keep
Michael next to him."
Drew: "Diane, over the weeks you and I have grown closer, and
I can honestly say that you and I are great friends, and I love you and I'll see you.
Things happen for a reason, and sometimes you don't know right at the moment why they happen, but later on in life, you kind of figure out maybe why it happened, so
I loved getting to know you and we spent so much time together, I don't know if we're going to be the same having to be apart for more than a minute, but I'm looking forward to it after the show. And
I guess I'll see you later."
Julie: "What are you thinking? What are your thoughts after hearing that?"
Diane: "I could have got a better good-bye message from
Julie: "What is going to help you determine who you vote for to win?"
Diane: "I have the biggest decision now. I mean honestly. Drew lied to me, I guess at the end of the show, so that might hurt his vote for sure." Diane's
Eviction [6 minutes].
an outdoor LD, Drew and Cowboy go back inside to find BB has left them a bottle
of Champagne. Drew opens the bottle and pours a glass for him and Cowboy.
In the storage room, they have more food, including tonight's
dinner, Chinese food Sweet and sour chicken, General Tso's chicken, chicken
fried rice and Dr. Pepper (Cowboy's been harping on BB getting him Dr. Pepper
since the first day. At some point they gave him a couple bottles.)
Drew: "Well, I've now made a girl cry on national TV."
They talk about the Earthquake competition and how Drew doesn't believe she lost
by accident. Cowboy agrees that she just gave up because she was depending
7:00PM They haven't stopped talking about the jury,
the game and what people will think of how they played. Drew just doesn't
understand Diane. Drew says he read her passages from the Bible about
judging others, but she didn't learn from it. Drew says there were many
times when she was so mean spirited and judgmental.
Cowboy says that his first wife wasn't Christian, but she
went to church with him and got saved, and on Easter she was baptized.
Cowboy says that now he thinks he'd only date girls that are Christian.
Crazy Couple [9 minutes]
7:45PM Drew takes a nap!
Stuff: I was busy making up the clips from
tonight's show so I'm not sure when these comments were made. Cowboy's
jokingly telling BB that for Drew's HoH reward, he'd like a picture of April and
a letter from Chason. Cowboy says Drew's already got pictures of everybody
from home. And Drew says, "Yeah maybe this time they'll send me a picture
of my girl." Cowboy has a look of recollection, and says, "Ohhhh yeah..."
I don't know if Drew was referring to Vanessa, the girl he just starting seeing
before Big Brother, or if it's another female they've spoken of before.
They have the BB rule book and start going over all the
stuff they were told during the orientation week. Drew recalls his
bewilderment when he read how to do laundry with a washboard and tub.
They talk about going on "The Early Show," "The Late
Show with David Letterman," and "Live with Regis and Kelly."
Cowboy wants to ask Dave to use his influence with CBS to get him a sit-com.
They both agree that Kelly is a hottie [from South Jersey of course] and Cowboy
hopes to get a chance to kiss her. [Why not, Jase did.]
10:10PM The two remaining horsemen celebrate their
victory by galloping through the house with the putting green hole markers
between their legs like a child's broomstick pony. They start in the
backyard skipping along making horse noises, Then they run through the whinnying
and yelling "To the horsemen!" The great horseman got all tuckered out and
retreated. Drew tried to make a better basketball hoop from a bucket, but
every time he said he wanted to cut the bottom out, the BB voice would say,
"Drew, Michael, stop that."
still hasn't been given his room or gift basket for winning HoH yet. This
is normally done by 7:30PM. The boys are behaving now, after a few card
games, they start a quiet game of chess.
11:30PM Cowboy asks Drew about Vanessa.
Drew says he only got to see her every two weeks, and on the weekends she'd go
out partying. They agreed to take a break from each other while he was on
the show. He says he'd still like to get a picture of her in his HoH
package. [They still didn't give him his room.] Drew's sure Vanessa's
"high tailed it out" when she saw him kissing another girl.
Midnight Drew's reading the Bible, but that doesn't
stop Cowboy from talking. he has the letter BB gave him from his
biological father, "I got this the second day-- I've read it a million times
since then. I wonder what he was thinking when he wrote it?"
September 16, 2004: Cowboy Talks, All Day
11:15AM Wake-Up Call. Will Drew throw the third
part of the HoH so that he won't have to break his word to Cowboy and Diane?
What would Diane do if she knew what the boys were thinking?
Last Night: The kids continued with their high jinks
after I stopped watching. Diane had a lot of wine to drink, although she
said was pretty bad wine. I stopped watching when they went to bed, but
here's what they say happened:
At about 12:30AM Diane wasn't feeling too good after drinking. The
kids are staying in the cloud room tonight. Diane feels sick and gets up to go to
the bathroom. Drew lays on the floor and Cowboy puts on his shirt and
glasses and ring and lays in the bed. When Diane comes back to bed Cowboy pretends
he's Drew. Drew adds the illusion be providing his own voice, asking how she's
feeling etc.. She jumps into bed and Cowboy's rubbing her back, as she is
about to kiss
Drew, she sees that it's Cowboy. Hilarity ensues.
Drew: "THAT was insanely awesome!
That was the best prank ever"
Diane: "I hate you both- I cant breathe! I leaned over to kiss you and I was like oh that' s not
Diane: "That was the ultimate Big Brother prank"
Cowboy: "It was better than the first time I did it."
Drew: OHHH shit!
That was great "
Diane: "I think that just killed my buzz- I think I'm actually OK now."
Diane's still sick and trying to puke. Drew tries to
help by making vomiting sounds. When they come back from another trip to
the bathroom, Cowboy sneaks into bed with them, Cowboy's in the middle.
Diane Catches on and tells Cowboy that's he's lucky that , "I didn't
grab anything strange!!" Drew tried to convince Diane that she kissed
Cowboy. Diane gets up a few more times sick, and Cowboy just can't sleep
so he gets up and makes popcorn and plays solitaire.
Today: At 12:15PM Diane's still in bed, she
says the room spins every time she tries to get up. A little later BB
calls for an outdoor LD, now Diane has to get up. They're on the patio
playing cards. Diane wants to go the McDonalds and get a Big Mac.
Drew wants a bacon cheeseburger and Cowboy has a hankerin' his A&W Food stand
back home. The LD was brief, over at 12:35PM.
1:45PM After a marathon conversation featuring
Cowboy telling Drew how they're best friends, and Drew can have the bed in the
HoH room after he lets him win ("I'll sleep on the floor.'), and how he'll be
best man at the wedding. BB "Arthur" tells Drew there will be an
announcement regarding today's events in ten minutes.
When we return from a brief fish break Cowboy is in the DR
and Drew and Diane are really bashing the Cowboy. Drew: "I've got a theory
for you. Call me heartless. But, I think that like this game, life is full of
choices. You make different choices you live with the consequences. Getting
married is an expense. Marriage and kids is expensive. It's your choice. If you
are gonna want to do that, don't complain about it. You don't tell it to
Diane: "He knows, if you win it he wants you to feel sorry for him."
Drew: "Don't use it in the game."
Diane: "You never verbally promised to take him to the final two, did you?"
Cowboy comes out of the DR and I can't
tell what they told him, but it's set him off on another speech.
2:20PM Diane's in the DR. Cowboy's still
telling Drew how much he means to him. The emotion overcomes him and he
starts crying. Diane joins them, Cowboy's composed himself, and Diane
starts talking about the wrap party and not wanting to see anyone. "Hey
Cowboy, how is it that you two made it this far without pissing anyone off?"
The three have recorded goodbye messages to each other, and any of the three
could be leaving.
Tears [9 minutes]
Cowboy and Diane talk about Scott, wondering if he really
posed in Playgirl, Diane says she has to get the April issue and see for
herself. She mentions the Playboy issue that had some of the Survivor
girls in it. "The Survivor chicks got a million dollars for posing in
Playboy." Diane tells him. Cowboy: "If they give me a million dollars I'd
pose for Playgirl, shit. No, I don't think I would."
Diane: "You could be in Playgirl as far as just putting your hat over your shit.
If Playboy gave me a million dollars, I'd probably do it."
Diane: "Yeah, I turned it down right before I came in."
Cowboy: "You did?"
Diane: "Uh huh."
Cowboy: "Was it not gonna pay?"
Diane: "No I just didn't want to expose myself to the world."
BB calls them to the storage room, the delivery is all the
items they've been talking about. Chili and corn chips to make a chili
pie, Fruit-Roll-Ups, Cheez-its and more. Their suitcases are also there,
it's time to pack.
Cowboy tells Drew that he has
more shoes than a girl, and as he packs, Diane sees clothes he's never worn.
Diane's just lounging she says she's already packed.
4:50PM Nap time. [Let's hope they stay there until
6:00PM, I have to watch Survivor on the East coast.]
5:45PM Cowboy just hasn't shut up all day long.
They're playing basketball and Drew
says something about Diane, and Cowboy asks, "Well you didn't give her
the idea you were taking her, did ya?" Drew says, he did, "I said
we'd look out for each other... l I kinda had to do that." Cowboy tells him that
now Drew can't win HoH, it's the only way he can do it without breaking a
promise. Drew tells him, "I was just in a bad situation, I had to
say things to Diane or you wouldn't have be here." Cowboy says he
6:00PM Diane's still in
bed, she's only been out of it a few hours today. At 6:15PM she gets up
and goes to the DR to re-record her goodbye message. It's been bothering
her that it wasn't very good.
7:15PM Cowboy's still talking to his brother,
his best friend, "You'll see the true me tomorrow, when I choose who will stay.
It was meant to be that two Christian guys will be the final two."
BB gave them more food than they can eat before it spoils, so
Diane, who hasn't a clue how to cook, says she's "Going fuck around with some
food." She like a little girl in the kitchen, going through all the
motions she's seen the grown-ups do. She's chopping and dicing, but
warns Drew and Cowboy, she's just practicing and it isn't intended to be eaten.
Drew brings an Announcement from BB: They will
have to go to bed early tonight (midnight) to be up early for a long outdoor LD.
says she regrets the choice she made, she would much rather be here with Nakomis
than with Cowboy, "It would have been easier to beat her." Drew says the Nakomis
is smart, and Diane clarifies, "I mean she never could have stood on the rock
thing as long as you did." [No logic there, Cowboy lost that
competition in 15 minutes, does Diane think that Nakomis would have lost
9:00PM Dinner is served. The fish Diane prepared
is more than just experimental, it's so tasty too. The boys like fish and
the tarter sauce. Heady with success, Diane says that she is going
to go home and cook for her family. After dinner the guys cleaned up in
10:15PM Yet another card game is in progress.
11:45PM The kids are getting ready for bed. Cowboy's
already tucked in reading his Bible. Drew is reading his Bible aloud to
Diane. They should be under the covers sucking face pretty soon.
September 15, 2004: Cowboy Wins! Part 2 of The
11:00AM Drew woke up brushed his teeth. BB Woke
Cowboy with the theme to "The Jeffersons." Cowboy tells Diane and
Drew that after BB, he'll go home, and will probably be back in January to work
on his TV show.
y'all been around emus? [15 minutes]
Nothing Left to Report: As I recall from seasons
past there's nothing left for me to report. If they follow what they've
done in the past, the next part of the HoH competition will be a timed race
where the two contenders perform various tasks related to life in the BB house.
They compete separately and will not know or be told their times. The race
wasn't shown on the live feeds in the past. On Friday's show, they'll tell
them who won part two, then Drew and the other winner will face off in a really
short trivia challenge game conducted in the BB house living room. The
winner of that game, which Drew and Diane plan to throw so that Diane wins, will
pick the other person to go before the jury in the big finale. [Update:
Today's competition was a timed challenge requiring knowledge of past events.
Cowboy won. Drew says part three will be tomorrow.]
At 1:30PM there were fish on all four feeds. As the
show starts to wind down, BB has been entertaining them with music at various
times. We don't get to hear it, so we get fish, then when the feeds
return, the HGs start singing, and we get fish again. Drew did ask BB for
a heads up as to when the next competition will be today, but there is no
confirmation when it will take place.
3:45PM thru 4:45PM we've had nothing but fish. When the feeds returned,
Diane is crying. They competed in another question and answer
challenge. Diane did OK until a question about who salted the glass in the
Margarita Madness challenge. Other questions were about the
Diane Loses Part 2!
Drew kisses away Diane's tears as they cuddle in the cloud room. Diane
says the Drew must win tomorrow's challenge. Diane says "He [Cowboy] doesn't
deserve to win this game." She says how glad she is to have Drew, he's so
strong and smart. [Her opinion.] Cowboy must have figured out that
he's been had at this point. Drew can't keep his lips off of her, and he
hasn't talked game with Cowboy since he evicted Nakomis. Cowboy paces
around the house while the other two make-out.
5:30PM Drew tells Cowboy that the final part of the
HoH competition will be tomorrow. BB told him so. They get a few minutes
to whisper their strategy for tomorrow. Cowboy gets Drew to reassure him,
"Two of the four horseman." At 5:50PM they move their talk to the gym.
6:00PM Cowboy says to Drew, "You know, because of you I can get my
teeth fixed. It will cost about four grand bit it has been bothering me
for several years. First or second I can do that.
And if I win I want you to come out to my ranch." Drew's pumping him up
with agreement and support.
Loyalty & Jock Itch[9 minutes]
an outdoor LD that lasts for about a half hour. It's just casual
chat. Afterwards, Cowboy is called to the DR and Diane starts trashing
the Cowboy [4 minutes]
8:15PM Drew and Cowboy
are in the bathroom. Cowboy starts reinforcing the commitment. He
talks about how proud his family will be. The plan is that Drew will throw
the third part of the HoH competition so that Cowboy wins HoH. This way
Drew will not have to look bad by choosing Cowboy over Diane. Cowboy: "If it's
an obstacle course, you know what you have to do." Drew: "Yeah, keep
my shoelaces untied."
Cowboy keeps telling Drew not to worry, he can be
trusted, "You know we'll be friends for life, and true friends are better
than girlfriends, well, you know what I mean."
8:35PM Necessity is a
Mother... Drew really misses playing basketball, so Cowboy comes up
with a plan to make a basketball hoop out of the bucket BB gave them to mix
cement in for a craft project. Drew gets the tools out to remove the
bottom and BB tells him he should stop. They come up with an alternate
plan and attach a box to the top of the punching bag. Diane checks out the
spiders in the backyard while the guys play basketball. They play
their make-shift game for an hour.
10:00PM The night's recreation
moves inside and they play cards while consuming their allowance of beer and
wine. There's food and plenty of stories from Cowboy, who's still not at a
loss for words. 11:30PM The card game continues.
