Smash TV: Big Brother 10 Week 10 Finale!

Sunday, September 21st, 2008 | SMASH TV with No Comments »

As predicted, the winner of Big Brother 10 is Dan Gheesling, the 25-year-old Catholic high school teacher from Dearborn, Michigan. He was the unanimous choice of all the jury members, who were reunited all on stage at CBS Television City in Los Angeles for the live telecast. Dan and Memphis Garrett, the “mixologist” from LA, were the Renegade duo that was left in the end. They endured some grilling from the seven jury members –those who were tossed out of the house most recently—Jerry, Keesha, Renny, Ollie, Michelle, April and Libra.

Before the questioning began, CBS tried to stage some trouble at the “Jury House” by having them talk openly about who they wanted to walk in as the next jury member. “So guys, who do you think the next juror is”, said Libra in an unconvincing tone. Keesha wanted it to be Memphis because he was “arrogant”. Ollie with his stupid head mumbled something barely incomprehensible about Dan “mocking” everyone and “the entire process”. Then the dramz began with the entrance of Jerry, the next and final jury member, who waltzed I and all hell broke loose. Libra, with her face full of make-up, opined that Jerry wasn’t the “gingerly old man” that “America thought he was”, which begged the question as to what is a “gingerly old man” in the first place.

Big Brother 10 Week 9

Quite a dramatic week inside the BB house, but that’s because we are near the end of the show and the houseguests are, as Jerry thoughtfully put it, “smelling the money” –the half mil the winner will get. After Renny’s ouster last week, we had two people voted out, Keesha and Jerry. That leaves the Renegade duo of Dan and Memphis to await the harsh questioning of the jury in Tuesday night’s final episode.

Watching Keesha get the boot was a little tough. She had been thinking for several weeks that she was in a Dan-Memphis-Keesha alliance, and to some extent she was right. Other people were backdoored or maneuvered our of the house as a way to preserve this alliance. Thus Michelle was unceremoniously let go; ditto Ollie and his stupidity (and his admission this week, from the jury house, that his regret was thinking with his heart and not his brain). In any case, Keesha felt she had a shot at the final two, and that somehow Dan or Memphis would bring her along for the final two selection.

With Jerry still in the house, that complicated things. Instead, Memphis and Dan had a plan that needed smart execution. Memphis elected to Read the rest of this entry »

Big Brother 10

Things appear to be going as planned–the Renegade Alliance plan, that is, between Memphis and Dan. After the double eviction of Michelle and Ollie last week, Jerry became HOH –the second time this season for him. With five members left, the lines have been clearly drawn. Beyond the strict (and secret) alliance of the two renegades, there is Keesha.

Dan and Memphis see Keesha as a partner. On the other side, Jerry was pretty much by himself. Renny, who is best friend’s with Keesha, was also alone for a couple of reasons. One, Jerry never found any kinship with the ‘Nawlins beauty shop owner, so he wasn’t going to ally with her. Her dislike for “The Colonel” was also well-known. Two, neither Memphis nor Dan liked Renny either in that they didn’t trust her. Yet Renny’s value up to now was that she was someone who would roundly beat whomever would be in the final two. And it’s only because Renny never reached the nastiness or horrible behavior levels of an April or a Libra. In the end, Renny was voted out. Jerry put up Read the rest of this entry »

Big Brother 10

With about three weeks to go before the September 16 finale, BB10 is getting pretty treacherous and, of course, incredibly trashy and filled with drama. This week Dan the devious Catholic high school teacher/football coach was HOH, and he hatched a plan that was designed to solifidy his “Renegade” alliance he has with Memphis. And it worked, although it was weird to see him alternately look terrified but, like a Puppetmaster, tell others what to do during the POV meeting or else risk being put on the block. When Chenbot told the houseguests at the start of Thursday’s live telecast that there would be a double eviction, they were clearly unsettled. This meant that a “fast forward” week would be done in one show, and Chenbot deftly rushed through an HOH competition, another pair put up on the block, a POV event (which we didn’t see), and then another live vote to kick someone off. (Whew! Give Mrs. Les Moonves an Emmy!)  In the end, it was Portuguese Princess Michelle who was initially tossed out, and Read the rest of this entry »
