Ok, it’s been a week since the houseguests have been in the house and I’m sure some of my impressions of the houseguests have changed. I’m going to write this up without referring to my previous post and then compare. Here we go.
Adria – she seems pretty interesting and has things to contribute to conversations. Her fitness twin comes out a lot as she leads Will and others in ab crunches and other workouts.
Diane – to be honest, I haven’t gotten much out of Diane. She isn’t featured much on the feeds so I can’t get much of a read on her. There are Diane freaks out there and I’m not quite sure what they’re seeing. No particular feelings either way here.
Drew – Dreamboat. Yummy. Other than that, he’s a bit on the quiet side. Been snuggling with Diane recently so those gay rumours may have to be put to rest. I’ll keep on hoping for the short term.
Holly – wasn’t sure at first how she would fare with all the ditzy stuff we were seeing in commercials and other places on the web. She brings that same stuff into the house and has some of the funniest quotes ever uttered in the Big Brother house. Listening to her gets a bit old, though. Maybe if her voice wasn’t so grating.
Jase – Went from a very machismo stud hamming it up with Scott all the time to a big wuss that melts in Holly’s arms. She’s going to kill his game if he’s not careful.
Jennifer – a.k.a. Nakomis. (I think it was) Gretchen on House Calls had a good point when she said that there was simply no reason for Jennifer to announce that her name was Jennifer, but to please call her Nakomis. Why didn’t she just say her name was Nakomis? It came off as weird and alienated her right away. I think she’s grown on people, though, and is fitting in a little better. The relationship with her half-brother seems to be taking a back seat to the game, which is probably for the best. But, I would find it hard to ignore if I just found out I had (another) sister and had to live with her for the forseeable future.
Karen – my absolute favorite in the house at the moment. She has a “matter of fact”-ness about her and just says stuff like it is. Her stories are hilarious at times and can’t wait for the next one. Her talk about how she had to wear headgear and stuff when she was little was priceless. Her alliance early on with Will was a smart move, I think.
Lori – Took the $10k on the first night, but it hasn’t yet harmed her. Every once in a while I hear Jase or Scott mention it, so it hasn’t been dropped completely. I’m not sure where she’s at alliance-wise. Otherwise, she seems pleasant.
Marvin – First off, he can curse up a storm. And not because he’s angry or anything. Just in normal conversation. WTH? I didn’t personally witness the supposed sexual advances, etc., but there’s been enough reports and apparently BB has warned him in the DR about it. Nothing to like here. I almost wish he had walked when he was threatening. The house would be better without him.
Michael – a.k.a. Cowboy. I remember labeling him a loser on first sight and wish to gracefully take that back right now. He’s probably the most genuine person in the house and he’s not afraid to embarrass himself for everybody’s enjoyment. One recent priceless moment had him making up and singing a song for Holly on the spot. With the cowboy hat on. Very funny and very “awwww.”
Mike – The pro-Bush, pro-Rush crap hasn’t surfaced as much as it was hyped. In fact, I don’t recall him bringing it up yet at all. He has a curious accent, but he’s pretty boring. Sulks a lot. He tends to sit around and listen to other people. Maybe he’s trying to fly low to not piss anyone off since he’s on the block. He’ll probably go this week, so good riddance.
Scott – What an ass. He’s so arrogant, it pisses me off. He’s been caught so many times in lies and half-truths, I’ve lost count. He thinks he’s hot shit (and granted, he’s got a pretty hot body), but it seems every sentence out of his mouth makes me want to vomit. Wish I could just walk up to him and smack the shit out of him. Argh.
Will – Ah, Will. The first gay guy on BB that I’ve liked from the start (I wasn’t sure initially about Bunky and Marcellas annoyed me later on in his season with him and Amy’s shenanigans) and he’s showing me no reason not to. He’s good looking, smart, isn’t annoying, has good fashion sense, seems to get along with everyone. Oy, I could keep going. I could watch him run on that treadmill for hours.
