Over the Top Friday Feed Updates; Finishing Up HoH



Who is this cast, and what have you done to the people who stay up all night and sleep all morning??  It’s Friday at 9:15am and about half the house is already up and about.  I think the official wakeup call is at 10am, so this is crazy to me.

I gotta say though, I’m liking this season. I’m not just saying that because I want to push the live feeds. I am more than happy with people just getting updates here (but really, you should join the feeds).  My problem is that so many are missing out because it’s feed-only, so I offered a suggestion that they at least make the daily 10-15 minute recap episodes free to the public so we can embed them on our blogs.  This way you guys can get a video highlight reel, which helps people actually see and hear the houseguests rather than just read about them.  Let’s hope they listen.

What I like about the season is that they force people to stay awake during the day (no more Michelle sleeping 16 hours a day), America has influence – but not complete power – over the nominations and evictions, a large majority of the cast is familiar with the show, and the competitions (so far) are different and unique.  I summed up the HoH competition here, but an even smaller summary is they are passing around a necklace every time an alarm sounds. If someone gets the necklace, they can’t be HoH. Simple, yet strategic. Required no blackouts and no 2 day lockdowns. The best part is that it’s still going on.



  • 9:30am – Neeley is outside talking with Jason while Shane was nearby.  A few others in the kitchen
  • 9:45am – Morgan, Alex, and Whitney are up now.  I think that makes just about everyone – before the wakeup call.
    • morgan-alex-white
    • Morgan is telling the girls how Jason approached her and asked not to get the spider because he feels certain he would be going home
    • They’re a bit surprised he approached her
    • Meanwhile, they’re talking about how they expected all night for the horn to go off, but it never did. That screwed up Morgan’s sleep, and Cornbread wanted to put on coffee last night. I think it’s accepted she is giving ig to him next
  • 10:05pm – Neeley asks Whitney about her lips and if they’re natural or not.  She didn’t ask her in a rude way
    • Whitney says everyone on her mother’s side of the family has full lips like that.  Neeley jokes how Kylie (Jenner) paid good money to have lips like that
    • whitney-lips
  • 10:15pm – Morgan passes off her crabs to Cornbread
    • morgan-cornbread
  • 10:20pm – Shane is in the storage room talking to Scott the virgin about Jason.  Shane has him doing recon with Jason
    • Scott tells him that Jason wants to keep Shane, Monte and Danielle around for a little while because they’ll eventually be a target
  • 11:00am – Running a few errands. By the time I should be back, we should be down to 3 without the bug. Early indicators are that Cornbread will use it on Jason next
    • My guess is when I return, Jason will still be in this seat, just wearing a different shirt
    • jason-smoking
  • 11:12am – They went quick this time.  I didn’t get a chance to leave yet.  Cornbread didn’t have crabs long, and just like I said….
    • jason-spider
    • Meanwhile, Jason throwing shade at Andy (BB15 winner) saying how he wasn’t nearly as good a player as he thinks is. He was carried by Amanda and McCrae, but backstabbed them.
    • Jason talks about the girls that season, and says they said horrible things, but doesn’t make them horrible people.  Maybe so, but GinaMarie really is horrible
  • 12:35pm – I’m back, and it looks like Whitney got hit with the bug.. and Jason moved!
    • whitney-crap
    • I added a page dedicated to the player rankings which I will be updating weekly and showing how they change throughout the season
    • Click here to vote for week 1 players
    • (note: should I remove evicted players each week, or keep them in the poll to see if evicted players are still popular than active?
  • 1:00pm – We have an HoH!
    • Monte is the first HoH of the season
    • monte-hoh
  • 1:30pm – Not much changed after the HoH.  Unlike regular seasons of sitting around awkwardly on Thursday nights waiting for a 1am HoH room, people are outside in the pool casually waiting for the room
    • Scott has never been to a strip club.  This is only slightly less shocking than learning he is a virgin
    • I’ll be monitoring the feeds, but need to read some of my meteorology book.  Fun stuff
  • 2:20pm – Jason is back in his spot.  If I was in the house with him, I would take his spot just to mess with him
    • jason-samespot
  • 2:50pm – Morgan, Alex and Whitney are talking about their little group.
    • They don’t have a set alliance, but the three of them are trying to form one. They are debating if they should include Shelby, but she’s kind of a wildcard.
    • morgan-alex2
    • Morgan leaves, Whitney enters, and Alex tells Whit how Alex is cool with the alliance and thinks about adding Shelby
    • Neither of them trust Cornbread because during the HoH comp, Cornbread looked like he was seriously considering giving it to her or Alex
  • 3:05pm – Morgan is outside working on the Shelby aspect of the alliance. She has mentioned Monte, but Shelby isn’t sure if she can work with him because they’re so different
    • They are talking about the guys. They think Scott isn’t really a debt collector. They also notice how he sits off to the side and could be listening in and relaying info (he is)
    • Shelby jokes to Morgan about how someone, maybe Danielle, could have a secret twin or something.  Oh Shelby, you’re talking to a secret sister
  • 3:30pm – I’m running out for a little while. Friday night fun.  I’ll be back, and the HoH room should be open by then
  • 7:15pm – Alright, ran down to the local Halloween thing. Fun time riding a hayride in the rain.
    • It appears King Monte has his HoH room.  I have noticed pictures of all the cast members on the wall. That’s weird. It has buttons on them that Monte said not to press. This means, press them!
    • buttons-wall
  • 7:48pm – Monte is doing rounds in the HOH room.  Right now he is talking to Alex and running the idea of getting Jason out
    • She already used the ‘cut the head off the snake’ line and agrees. Boom
    • alex-monte
  • 8:30pm – Monte is now chatting with Cornbread on what to do. He really wants to get Jason out and is trying to secure the votes for it.
  • 9:00pm – Morgan’s turn to get the Monte chat.

I’m a bit tired. On the schedule tomorrow is the havenot reveal at 1pm, and a safety meeting at 7pm. Note, I will create a page with the schedule and link to it from my box above, but you can also find it on the sidebar if you’re looking at the site through pc.

    Not going to take the feeds, myself; I just wonder if any of at will be posted to Youtube. O’, and thanks for the updates, Steve.

    loving this season so far. I think it takes into consideration all of the dedicated fans and our requests for changes. I think I may not sleep for the next two months.

    Yesterday when everyone was up at 10 am I thought they had just stayed up all night and would be sleeping all day. But no one went to lay down in bed after the morning wake up, instead they got their bathing suits on and went out to the pool. So I flashed back on the feeds and surprised they slept (albeit late)!
    This season feels different and I like it. Not sure about the house guests though.

    4:00 AM 1/2 Is a good flashback for Jason setting up his dream team. 🙂

    • NKogNeeTow

      That was the best time in the house so far Amber. And I’m glad to see Justin finally comfortable enough to be with a group. He started off kind of ackward at first, and a little creepy, but with Jason’s group, he came alive and really connected with them. And his was funny too. His stories were hilarious! I like what I call “The Fearless Four” (Jason, Justin, Krissy, and Shelby…can’t include Scott, he’s the new Secret Squirrel (rat for Monte’s side of the house).

      I’m just sad that they might not last long. Monte has already targeted Jason to go home first, followed by Justin. Jason thinks Cornbread is more of a threat, but Justin is on to Monte and doesn’t trush him…and rightly so.

      Last night more than made up for the blackout we had Wednesday night. The Fearless 4 + 1, didn’t go to bed until 5:15 this morning (8:15 my time) and most of the Chatters (myself included) were right up with them (although I don’t want to make a habit of that). All of the excitement was in the backyard. I can’t remember the name they gave their alliance, but they named the other side of the house “The Abs and The Barbies”. Pretty good name for them. They decided to meet late at night like that, when the other side of the house goes to sleep. They intend to keep some distance between them during the day, with a few of them infiltrating the other side of the house (Shelby is going to try hanging out with some of the other girls in the house to try to bring them over to their side). Their biggest problem with their alliance (although they don’t know it), is that Steve…I mean Scott, is working for the other side 🙁

      I was hoping I wouldn’t get to invested in this new group, so I could FINALLY start going to bed at a decent hour. But if last night’s BY crew was any indication of how it will go, I’ve might try to keep up for at least a week or so….to see how it goes and if they can hold my interest.

      That being said, I do hope more of our group from the regular seasons, show up here. It seems so strange not seeing as many comments here as during the regular season.

    I am with you Steve the season is starting off as one of the best in awhile. So for all of you guys on the fence about the show I would suggest at least trying the 1week free you’ll be hooked.

    Down the Monte and Alex….Jason is in trouble.

  7. BBBonbon62

    Why do the girls in every season feed on their own. Whitney had a chance to give the HoH to Alex and have a girl in power but instead chooses Monte and Alex was ok with this. We already have an all guy alliance with Shane, Cornbread, Scott and Monte. Instead of following the guys these wonen need to form a strong alliance and stick to it. Girls are just too caddy and jealous. This why the majority of BB winners are guys. This is also why I find myself cheering on male houseguest in most seasons. Jmo

    • Avatar

      I think Alex was scared just like most HG’s about getting blood on their hands too early. Hopefully the women don’t become catty and turn on each other like in most seasons and get together.

    • Amberchelly

      Agree Bonbon. These girls aren’t thinking. I’m not a fan of Whitney anyway. For me Whitney = yawn.

    • Mel

      Agree. I found it strange that Whitney and Morgan or Alex (can’t remember) wanted to target Krissi and Neely first and the reason was they felt those would be the women who would turn on women. ?????
      They want to target women so they don’t target women?

      • Helen
        Helen (5578 comments)

        My first choices for eviction are Alex,Scott,Danielle and Whitney. Not necessarily in that order. All four of them at once would be a great twist. LOL

    • NKogNeeTow

      BBB, although you are correct, Monte wanted to be the first HOH REALLY bad so he can get Jason out. The rest of them went along with it because they didn’t want “blood on their hands” and was afraid that if they won HOH and put Jason up and he didn’t go home, he would target them. They chose the order they would pass the crab off, with it going from Morgan to Cornbread, so he could pass it off to Jason (who also wanted to be HOH), to make him inelligable (sp). Since Jason doesn’t know that Monte & Crew wants him out, he didn’t pass it off to Monte (which a lot of us were hoping for). It’s still not to late for the girls though. Hopefully they’ll wise up before the boys completely take over the house AND the game. Well, all except Danielle. She’s already ensconced herself with the boys. She is blending in with the guys so they can protect her and keep her safe….an early floater.

  8. Mel

    Steve, I vote for keeping the evicted HG’s in the poll. I like seeing when they are more popular that’ll the ones still playing!

    I haven’t been glued to the feeds yet. I’ve watched the video interviews/bios, the 2 hour house entry and caught snippets of the feeds here and there so far. I’m sure I’ve missed some things and may be wrong about my initial impressions. I may be reading some of them wrong so far.

    *Shelby-I thought I would hate her with her house entrance alone. I hate to see women bobbing around in shoes they can’t control! That got annoying. I love her deep scratchy voice and she seems like somewhat of a free spirit. I also like a good liar. (when they can pull it off) I have high hopes for this one.
    * Jason-I know I’m in the minority but I love me some Jason. He a real A**hole but I think he’s hilarious! If you listen to him with your eyes closed, he becomes the New Jersey version of Marge Simpson. I won’t cry when he leaves because he isn’t very good but I don’t mind a few laughs first. When Justin told Danielle “you’ve got a friend in me” and Jason said he was “going for the Disney angle,” I cracked up.
    *Justin- Even tho he seems to be on his own planet, he’s made me laugh. I can’t tell yet if he’s funny or annoying. I didn’t like that he gave me stalker (Caleb season 16 with Amber) vibes when he was talking to Danielle but the random comments he’s thrown out already have cracked me up. When he said that when he’s drunk, the only 2 things he eats are pizza and p***y, I lost it. Crude but very funny.
    *Monte- He’s already getting on my nerves. Maybe it’s still a little raw from 18 but to be harping on the guys vs girls crap in the first few hours turned me off. Since then, he seems to have an opinion about everything in the house. He seems like a know it all.
    Whitney-I said the day before the show even started that her voice would drive me nuts…I’m sticking with that. I have a slight southern accent but good greif! I can’t take hers. It’s so OTT!! I don’t have a reason but there’s something about her I don’t like. She’ll have to give me a reason to like her.
    *Alex-I may like her. I hope she’s a player! She had me in her interview when she said she likes Dan, Will, etc. and thinks shomances are stupid. She’s also a real fan of the show which I like. It’s the opposite effect Whitney has on me. I’ll be waiting for Alex to give me a reason not to like her.
    *Krissi-Her you tube video of the rude waitress thing is funny. (That was her job-she wasn’t being a jerk for real) I never paid to basically be roasted over dinner. It sounds fun tho. I want to rip those flowers out of her hair. Is that wierd?

    I haven’t form opinions about the others yet. I don’t suppose it matters because the ones I have made seem shallow anyway. Lol
    After seeing the interviews, I was disappointed thinking Neely is the new Davonne, Danielle is the new Zakiyah, Scott is Steve from 17, etc. but so far I’ve been pleasantly surprised.
    I don’t like Monte as the first HOH. I’m not ready to lose Krissi, Jason or Justin yet. Those seem to be his targets.

    • BBBonbon62

      Mell I totally agree with your houseguest recaps. Monte and Whitney please go home soon. Monte because he does act like a know it all and he wants to get rid of “my” Jason. Jason is hysterical and of course has realized that Alex and Morgan are related. However, this awareness was his demise in season 17 when he called out the twin twist. Whitney because of that accent.

      Justin creeps me out not sure why. I like Cornbread but wish he didn’t align with Monte. Feel the same about Shane aka Jesus.

      The girls hanging out with Monte are typical BB girls that will turn on other girls especially those not like them.

      Scott is also a creeper. Every time the camera pans to him he has the most awkward and creepy smile. I think he is more socially awkward than serial killer.

      And yes Danielle may be the Zaykiah of BBOTT.

    • Gerardo Chen Moonves

      Hey Mell! Great reading your posts as always! I logged in just to say that I think Monte is already starting to rub me the wrong way (almost reminds me of a much less annoying version of Paulie), but I see you’ve already got me covered on that front. I just KNEW he was going to end up winning the first HOH. I haven’t really made up my mind yet about any of the other players, but I agree with the consensus that this appears to be a much more knowledgeable group than any cast in the recent past. Here’s hoping for a great OTT season!

    • NKogNeeTow

      Spot on Melly Mell. Last night I named Monte The Poor Man’s Paulie. He’s a control freak, and not a very good one at that. Sir, YOU ARE NO PAULIE! Oh, and Shane is his Corey.

      When you separate Justin from the people in Monte’s group, he’s actually pretty good with Jason’s group. I didn’t like him at first, but he did make me laugh a lot last night. And I like that when the group was asking him about how he felt about the Dani/Shane situation, and how bad they felt for him, he said that although he liked her, he saw how shallow she was. He also said that in spite of the fact that he liked her, he was there to “win some money” and would vote out whoever he had to to get it. I was just glad he wasn’t blinded like Caleb was. Let’s just hope he sticks to it.

    • Mel

      I KNEW there was something about Whitney besides the accent! I found out she loved Frankie in 16. Silly or not, I use that as a BB gauge sometimes. If you loved Frankie, I usually give you the stink eye.

  9. Mel

    Anybody planning ahead for who to vote for the 3rd nom? I’m sure it will get easier but I’m guessing this will be a quick vote with a short window of time. It’s hard when it’s so early and you don’t know whose really together. I’m thinking Shane maybe? That may weaken Monte. Maybe Whitney? She seems pretty into Monte too and she’s REALLY annoying. In a 5 minute span, she told Monte that Jason wasn’t after Monte and then that he was. ???

  10. caRyn

    Possible showmance: Justin likes Danielle. Neeley may like Justin. Danielle and Shane are sharing time together.

    Hg working together, but not in an alliance that I know of:
    Monte, Shane, Cornbread & Scott
    Whitney & Alex
    Morgan & Shelby

  13. caRyn

    Cornbread, Monte and Whitney have all three said that Jason is coming after them.

    HOH room revealed pretty much the same as season 18 very few changes

  15. Mel

    Think those picture buttons in the hoh room will be for the 3rd nominee?

  16. Avatar

    Does Sheldon (new name for Jason since he never leaves his cushion) really think isolating himself smoking again will help his game this time? He seems to have learned nothing from before. Trying the same thing again is so stupid. And again hooking up with another girl the house doesn’t like Krissie. I had such high hopes for Jason but so far I’m worried.

  17. Avatar

    I can’t tell y’all how much I LOVE that Whitney is rocking all the Ky gear! I really hope she doesn’t do something to make me not like her! I wish someone besides Monte would have got it. He is already on my nerves!

  18. caRyn

    Whitney likes Monte and she said to Alex that she doesn’t think Monte will blindside them.

  19. Avatar

    Good ole boy Cornbread made his way straight to the HOH bathroom and took a stinky dump while everyone was still in there! A little too comfortable for my tastes.He could be quite entertaining

  20. caRyn

    Monte has his mind made up who he wants to go. Scott you are in the HOH room to listen. Now Monte calls Shelby to come upstairs. We will miss that convo.

  21. Mel

    Does anyone know if they will show the DR’s as a clip later or do you have to catch it live?

    Random question: I know they took out the carpet in the bathroom (about time) but is it just a concrete floor now? I thought I saw a couple glimpses of concrete cracks on the floor. This is the crap that keeps me awake at night!

    CB (I’m not writing cornbread for 2 months) is one of those people who has to hit you or tap parts of your body when he talks to you. I don’t want any of my friends beating the crap out of me while having conversation.

    Whitney thinks the backyard was decorated in “southern style” because of the cast this season. Isn’t it the same as it was last week?

    CB thinks the guys alliance should be called “Silent but Deadly.” It’s gross but you have to admit, it’s original!

    Monte is still annoying. He’s told the house pets how to cook the chicken to avoid salmonella, turned into the boss during some games they were playing and dishing out the rules and thinks this week’s “show” will be mostly about him since he’s HOH.

    Shelby asked earlier why the oven clock was in Spanish. I thought that was funny since the last few in 18 couldn’t figure out if Natalie or Victor did it and they didn’t know how to change it back. I guess production didn’t know how either.

  22. caRyn

    This is the Monte Massongill show tonight. I don’t say this very often, but I dislike this guy.

    I am so exasperated can someone please help? I bought all access but yet I can’t get it to work. Right now I am trying to watch Sept. 28 at 7 pm which is the first episode. I keep clicking the date and time and the watch button but it just keeps showing live. Also EVERYONE has said that you can watch the next day ON Demand. Has anyone actually done this cuz it is nowhere on my damand. I even searched by name and nothing comes up. Also I bought a chromecast and set it all up. i went in to try and watch the 1st episode and again there is nothing there. I clicked on episodes and it says there aren’t any. Again why has EVERYONE including CBS said that you can watch previous episodes but yet there is nothing there?

    • caRyn

      Sept. 28 @ 7 pm was hg entering the BB house one at a time and that went on for a long period of time. There wasn’t an episode. Just live feeds of the house. You didn’t miss an episode as far as I know.

        UHG! I am trying to watch the flashback feature. Every time I click a date and time it just continues to stream live. What am I doing wrong? when I say episode basically I am talking about the schedule of events that is posted. Them entering the house, veto comp, veto ceremony etc. So yeah basically since these “events” are scheduled EVERYONE is referring to them as episodes. So I am trying to use the flash back feature to go back and watch them and it just stays on live. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?

  24. NKogNeeTow

    I haven’t really been watching the Feeds but I have them on and have been listening. If I hear El Douche say “I’m a leader” or “I’m the biggest threat in the house” one more time, I’ll hurl! He really lives up to his last name.

    He holds majestic court in his HOH Suite, and ask everyone who they think he should put up, then beats them over the head with putting Jason up. He’s working overtime on overkill. PMP (Poor Man’s Paulie) has a bigger God complex than Paulie, but without half the smarts. Not to mention the fact that he ask each of them not to repeat anything he’s said to them, then tells them everything everyone else has said. Wasn’t that Frank and Paulie’s downfall?

    • caRyn

      After Monte asked a couple of hg to go up to the HOH room I stopped watching the feeds. I don’t know if I missed anything last night or not. I usually stick it out, but I couldn’t anymore with Monte. I don’t know that he is any different outside the BB house. Before Monte became HOH he was telling Alex and Shane that he doesn’t trust Jason, Neeley and Kryyssie. Scott kept asking Monte in the HOH room to have an open mind, but Monte’s attitude is – it is my way or the highway. So basically he called them up to the room to almost brainwash the other hg and he did most of the talking. After this week Monte will be a number one target.
      It was Monte and Shane that asked Scott and Cornbread when they were ‘brainstorming’ to not bring anyone into their 4 working together. Then immediately Monte breaks his own rule by talking to Alex and Whitney.

  25. caRyn

    -Kryssie (sorry).

  26. caRyn

    FYI if it helps anyone…I am new to the feeds but I have learned that if I have issues with flashback to do the following:
    When the flashback feature gets stuck, I click on a highlight just before the part I want to view and then scroll forward to the time I want to see.

  27. Advertisement:
  28. caRyn

    Kryssie asked Jason to be a F2 with her. I don’t think Jason will be around that long.

  29. caRyn

    Monte is telling Shane he is going to make Neeley, Cornbread, Danielle and Alex safe first. Monte, for now, wants Kryssie and Jason OTB with Jason being evicted.

    I believe 11 pm (EST) on Sunday (tomorrow) America’s Nominee Vote Opens.
