Big Brother 14, July 25 – “It’s Happy Hour, Baby!”

Well Sunday's Big Brother was sure a surprise, wasn't it? We knew Willie was probably on the volatile side, but it seemed like that was planned, like he got thrown out on purpose, either because he thought it would save face for him, or because he wanted to save his team. It was hard to tell which was the real reason, and we'll probably never know.

After it was announced that Willie was removed from the game, Ian does the classy thing and makes sure Britney is okay and gives her a hug. When it all went down, he'd been standing there in just a towel while two large men got in each other's faces. He wanted to break it up, but he was extremely scared. As she nervously chews on her own face, Britney knows that by the end of the week, she's down to two players by no fault of hers or the other players. Their backs are against the wall, and everyone else hates them because of Willie.

As soon as Shane heard Willie left the house, he was frustrated and petrified, because he was loyal to him and did what he wanted. and now he's the biggest target there. Dan explains Willie was the biggest target, and now that he's gone, Frank needs to target the people who voted against him last week, JoJo, Shane, and Danielle. Dan hopes he doesn't pick Danielle, because if she's evicted, he goes home too.

While those people are worried about their fate in the game, Boogie, Janelle, and Frank go celebrate up in the HoH. Boogie thinks of this week as a two-for-one deal for his team. “It's happy hour, Baby!” Jenn joins the group. Boogie mentions a backdoor idea of his to nominate Danielle and one of his and Janelle's people. When one of their people win PoV, they can put up Shane.

Even though Janelle is working with Boogie right now, she still doesn't fully trust him and doesn't want any of her players up, not even as a plan. Jenn isn't interested in this plan, because in Big Brother, the pawns always go home, and she isn't interested in going home. Janelle tells Boogie she'd rather see JoJo and Shane up, as one of them will go home for sure, and Frank would rather make sure Shane goes home.

JoJo tells the DR that she knows she and Shane are the obvious targets because they were with Willie and voted to evict Frank. Shane tells her that at least with Willie in the game, he knew he had votes, but now he screwed him. JoJo wants Frank to give her a chance to talk to him. She goes in and apologizes for interrupting the HoH meeting and steals him away.

JoJo swears on her grandmother's life that she was going to have Frank's back, and she's loyal to the people she aligns herself with. He reminds her that he told her the night after the blowup to vote for him, and he'd know he could trust her. But she still stuck with Willie. She points out Danielle did too, but he counters, telling her that was so that she could keep someone on her own team, but no one else on JoJo's team was on the block. She blames it on Willie putting it in her head that Frank couldn't be trusted. Frank knows the only reason she's trusting him now is because he's HoH. He gave her a chance, but she stuck with a cancer in the house. She was just being loyal though, the same as all the other players and coaches. He tells her a lot of it is Willie's fault, but some of it is her fault too.

In the end, Frank decides to make the nominations that will help him. Ashley is already safe because Janelle kept her safe after the coach's comp. The keys pulled as being safe are, in order, Jenn, Ian, Joe, Wil, and Danielle. JoJo and Shane are nominated because they were aligned with Willie, but he is giving them a chance to win the Power of Veto this week.

Frank tells the DR they didn't heed his advice last week, and now Shane is his number one target. Shane explains as soon as Willie left the house, he knew he was going up on the block, and that really sucks. All he was trying to do was be loyal. Danielle feels great to not be nominated, but believes she'll be the replacement nominee if JoJo or Shane comes off. JoJo knows Frank did what he said he was going to do, and now she just needs to win the PoV to take herself off the block.

Shane and Britney group in the Have Not Room, and he asks for her advice. She tells him it's going to be a long week, and he just needs to try and reintegrate himself as their whole team is on the outs. They're all having to go down because of Willie. They made the decisions they did out of sincerity and followed Willie to be loyal. As a coach, she feels bad and doesn't know what to do with them. She feels like she is taking on all the guilt. She didn't plan on having to deal with this. JoJo joins them and complains that a lot of the others didn't give her a hug after the nominations, and she says they're lucky she has self-control. If she goes out, it won't be like Willie; she'll go out with class. Shane just plans to fight for PoV.

Boogie tells Frank that what happened is amazing. Danielle got a free ride this week. She didn't get Have Not and didn't get nominated. Boogie explains in the DR that JoJo and Shane were the obvious choices as Willie's alliance. If one of them wins PoV, they have to take one off and probably put up Danielle. No matter what, one of them is staying, so planning ahead is never a bad thing. He tells Frank to nurture his relationships with Shane and JoJo, as the one who stays will be alone. They want to get that person to go after Janelle's or Dan's players.

Frank gathers everyone together to pick players for the power of veto competition. Danielle is hoping to play, knowing if Shane or JoJo win, she's going up. Frank goes first and picks Ian. Shane doesn't really care who is picked, knowing he just has to win it for himself, otherwise he's going home. He picks Ashley. Dan really wants Danielle to play to at least defend herself, but JoJo picks Wil. As host, Frank chooses Joe. Danielle is frustrated to see her fate determined by everyone else that is getting to play.

Ashley talks about wanting to get “wifed up.” She wants to be Suzy Homemaker, and have her babies, and have her little hubby. Her ideal man is roughly five years older than her and has his own business, but looks aren't huge for her. She's dated her share of frogs, but she knows she wants a guy who loves gong out to eat, loves snacks, love gong to the movies, a super family guy who loves playing games like Monopoly all night, etc. She goes on and on with this. Dan cracks “I think what you're describing is very realistic.”

Real Housewives of New Jersey – Ep. 13: “Sit Down and Man Up”

Wine tasting, photo-op, and rearrangements for Napa Valley.

Melissa’s Soul Diggaz producer comes to the Gorgas with a proposition of taking the music to another level. she

could potentially become an independent artist and move on to record labels and a contract.

Lauren takes Aunt Jacqueline along to her meeting for opening up a make-up store; her dream.

It’ll be like a Sephora with in-store services.

Teresa wants to have her own wine; a Bellini—correction—Fabellini. She and Joe go to the winery to create different tastes and blends.

Joe is right at home, even though he doesn’t drink throughout the week until Thursday. Or so he claims.

 

Time for another Real Housewife Photo-Op! In preparation to get her image out there, Melissa has professional photographs taken.

The diva has arrived. Though the divas I know usually have the talent to back it.

While Teresa does her large book signings—they’re such a red-carpet affair now that her fan base has grown—Joe takes back glasses of wine.

Kathy and Rich come to buy a book and show support.

Kathy mentions her dessert line and Teresa politely shuts down the idea of a desserts cookbook now that she’s an established NYT best-selling author.

I’m sure drama had nothing to do with that.

Kathy later holds a public desserts tasting party outside of the gelato shop in her old neighborhood.

Teresa shows up with a crony and has another awkward encounter with Jacqueline.

 

As Jacqueline tends to the laundry, Joe Gorga, Rich Wakile, and Chris have lunch guys’ style.

I love how all the guys can get together and have a glass of wine with some homemade grub and just casually talk things out; discuss all the drama going on between their wives.

When evening falls, Joe Guidice arrives. Bring out the wine for Joe.

As it turns out, this is a meeting with all the guys to clear up—or clarify rather—the issues with everyone because the Napa trip is quickly approaching.

The RV arrangements will have to change.

Instead of Joe and Teresa riding with Chris and Jacqueline, The Guidices will have to be paired with the Gorgas.

 

On the next episode: The Napa Valley road trip. Kathy and Teresa have a disagreement about the cookbook recipes. Melissa tries to talk to Teresa about her personality.

Project Runway Season 10: Off to Times Square

Welcome to the tenth regular season of Project Runway.  After the experiments of All-Stars, with a new host, a new mentor, and new judges, the tenth season brings back the old crowd:  Heidi, Tim, Michael, and Nina.  Unfortunately, it also brings back the hour and a half running time, which will doubtless be filled with endless shots of people sewing and/or sniping at each other.  We get enough of that even when the show’s just an hour long.  Trust me.

Before the show proper starts, though, there’s an hour-long Road to the Runway, which introduces us to this season’s crop of contestants and shows how they were cast.  Zanna Roberts Rossi did the hosting duties, and several previous contestants helped judge the auditions.  Among these were Nick Verreos from Season 2, Seth Aaron Henderson from Season 7, and Mondo Guerra, fresh from his victory in All-Stars.

There will be 16 designers this times, which means nobody will be rudely dumped at the last minute via a last-minute auditioning process.  Gunnar Deatherage, 22, had fallen victim to such a process at the start of Season 9, after inflicting a hideous pink dress on the judges and the viewers.  He vows to redeem himself this season.  Andrea Katz, 58, is this year’s senior season and is trying to put her life back together after losing her business and even her home to the bad economy.  Buffi Jashanmal, 32, was born in London, but raised in Dubai.  She likes to use bright colors and metallics in her work.

Dmitry Sholokhov, 33, hails from Belarus and used to be a model.  Kooan Kosuke, 30, is Japanese– and wears an afro.  If he’s not this season’s kook, I’ll be surprised.  Ven Budhu, 28, was born in Guyana and came to the U.S. when he was 4.  As a child, he liked to draw the gowns worn by Belle in Beauty and the Beast.  Lantie Foster, 48, had a father who wanted her to go to law school– and cut her off when she opted to go to art school.  If she sticks around, we’ll probably hear more about this.

We might also hear more about Alicia Hardesty’s gay lover, Beatrice Guapo’s late father, Christopher Palu’s shaky health (he had a heart attack in high school!), and Fabio Costa’s coming out to his mother.  The last may have actually been amusing:  he told her he wanted to go to fashion school.  She agreed to let him do so — so long as he didn’t let it “turn him gay.”  He assured her that wouldn’t happen, as he already was gay.

Then it’s off to Project Runway proper– which opens in Times Square.  The designers are at an outdoor runway, preparing to put on a show in front of hordes of screaming, excited people.  They have two models apiece.  Heidi calls the designers onstage for a champagne toast.

Rewind about 24 hours, and the designers are arriving in New York City.  They all gather at Parsons, which has pictures of the previous winners on the walls.  They also have an assignment waiting for them:  choose an outfit that they feel best represents their aesthetic.  While they’re mulling this over, Melissa Fleiss, 31, tells us that she’d originally studied to be a lawyer– and then shifted gears to go into fashion.

Tim Gunn arrives and welcomes the designers.  He then points out the usual stuff: the sewing machines, the HP tablets, and the accessory wall, which now gets its goodies from Lord and Taylor.  He also issues the season’s first challenge:  make a companion piece for their look.  The designers will have 30 minutes to sketch, a budget of $100.00, and a day to complete the challenge.  This last makes some of the designers nervous.  Beatrice, 29, admits that sewing is not her strength, and another designer moans that it had taken them four days to make their first piece.  Andrea, on the other hand, is calm and confident.  Not only does she have probably the most experience, she’s even taught classes on fashion design.

After the usual sketching time, the designers go off to Mood.  Raul Osorio, 27, hunts for some lace and comes up with some strange-looking pink fabric.  Back at Parson’s, he suffers from a bad case of buyer’s remorse when he discovers that that odd pink fabric– which looks like cotton balls strung together– is really, really hard on his sewing machine.  Fabio, 29, tells his neighbors that he’s a “freegan,”  which means he likes to go dumpster-diving for his food.  I’m not sure we needed to know that.

Christopher, 24, says “hi” to Gunnar, who retorts that he’s not in the mood.  He adds that he can be described as a “moody S.O.B.”  Lifetime, jerks are NOT interesting.  Do you always have to cast them?  Elsewhere, Dmitry tells us that he thinks Buffi is loud and trashy, in both looks and behavior

Tim comes in to make his rounds, and he starts with Melissa, who is using black leather.  He tells her that he’s intrigued by her look.  Next up is Sonja Williams, 27, who is working on a jacket and a dress.  Tim really likes the jacket, but doesn’t have much use for the dress.  He thinks Buffi’s look is “too much,” and is confused by Kooan’s design.

Beatrice tells Tim that she really likes working with knits, and he offers some suggestions on how to proceed.  Tim likes the dress that’s Fabio’s first look, but thinks the skirt is a “throwaway.”  Gunnar tells Tim that he likes designing for older Southern women, but Tim seems to like his work anyway.  Lantie tells Tim that she’s inspired by the 60’s.

Elena Slivnyak, 28, tells Tim that her look is inspired by fencing costumes, which seems to impress him.  Ven shows off the hot pink cocktail dress he’s making.  Tim is suitably impressed by his first look:  a draped white suit with a sculpted hot pink top.  He’s also pleased with Andrea, who is making something he calls “youthful.”  Tim isn’t so pleased with Raul, since his pastel pink cotton-ball skirt is literally see-through.  Tim tells him he needs to fix it.  Christopher complains about how his sewing machine “ate” one of his pieces.  Tim offers encouragement by telling him that his black cocktail dress works very well.

Gunnar and Christopher continue sniping at each other, revealing that they are the two youngest (and least mature) in the room.  Christopher comments that the show is Project Runway, not Toddlers and Tiaras.  The models come in for their fitting, and Christopher finds that his model is taller than advertised– which means his look doesn’t fit her.  On that note, it’s time to go home to the apartment.

The next morning, everybody gets back to work.  Tim sends in the models.  Kooan and Ven are pleased to find their looks fit perfectly, but others aren’t as fortunate.  Some designers send their models off to hair and make-up while others continue frantically sewing.  One of these, Beatrice, punctures a hole in one of her dresses– and she has only 20 minutes left to fix it.

Then it’s off to Times Square, where the designers find an outdoor runway and half of New York City waiting for them.  Heidi welcomes everybody and then introduces the judges, Michael Kors, Nina Garcia, and two guest judges:  the actress and producer Lauren Graham and  fashion designer Patricia Field, who had been a guest judge in the first episode of Project Runway’s first season.

Ven is up first.  His first design is spectacular:  It’s a draped white suit with billowing pants and a hot pink bustier with a front sculpted to look like a stylized rose.  His companion piece is a sleeveless hot pink cocktail dress with a pleated skirt.  Beatrice’s first look is a shapeless grey knit dress accessorized– and — overpowered by a colorful Aztec throw.  Her companion piece consists of a skirt made of the same grey knit as the dress, a sleeveless, off-the-shoulder rust-colored shirt, and a wide belt.

Lantie’s first look is a 60’s inspired white dress and vest.  When the model takes the vest off, the dress is revealed to be sleeveless, with a yoke down the front.  The companion piece is a light dress sheathed in translucent black tulle with a snakeskin bib that looks literally tacked on.  Andrea seems to have been channeling Mila:  Her first look is a long sleeveless dress with black and white blocking.  Her companion piece is a sleeveless mini-dress with a black top and a flared skirt with black and white bands.

Christopher’s companion piece is a sleeveless black cocktail dress.  His original look is a flowing gown slit up the front and with a strapped bodice.  Alicia’s first look is a deep red jumpsuit with a sleeveless top and knickers with a dropped crotch.  The companion look consists of skinny grey pants, also with a dropped crotch, and a sleeveless deep red and off white top.  Elena’s first look is a structured black outfit inspired by a fencing costume, and her second is a black and white mini-dress.

Buffi’s  first look is a sleeveless black mini-dress with a hot pink halter and a big wide belt with an enormous buckle.  Her second piece consists of extremely tight shiny black pants and a billowing hot pink top held in place by a black belt.  Dmitry’s first look is a  glittering black dress with mid-length sleeves, and his second look is a black miniskirt paired with an off-the-shoulder black top.  Kooan the Kook’s first piece is a pair of grey overall shorts decorated with big aqua circles.  He also made a long-sleeved hot pink print shirt.  His companion piece is a shapeless, opalescent, purple-grey mini-dress, that at least looks as if it wasn’t designed by a lunatic, but isn’t all that interesting.

Gunnar’s first look is a black and gold dress with a yoke, and his companion piece consists of separates that have the same color scheme.  Nathan McDonald, 33, is the quietest designer so far.  He made a draped teal cocktail dress and a draped coral gown with short sleeves.  Sonja made a very nice brown leather jacket and a pair of black pints trimmed with yellow.  For her second look, she made a black and yellow cocktail dress and a black vest.

Melissa’s first look is an asymmetrical black cocktail dress with a single sleeve.  Her second look is a long black gown teamed with a black top.  Raul’s first look is a gray pantsuit and his companion piece is the pastel pink cotton-ball dress that had been giving him fits earlier.  Fabio’s first look is a black shirt with a black and white skirt, and his second piece is a one-sleeved black cocktail dress.

After that it’s time for the judging.  Heidi then explains what this season’s prizes will be:  $50,000 worth of high-tech toys from HP, $100,000 from L’Oreal, and a fashion spread in Marie Claire.  She then calls Kooan, Lantie, Ven, Beatrice, Melissa, and Christopher.  These six got the highest and lowest scores between them, while the others are safe.

Kooan explains that his first look represents his early work, while his second piece represents his more recent work.  Showing one’s evolution as a designer is actually a fairly good idea.  The judges note his good technical skills, but deem his aesthetic “cartoonish.”

Melissa simply wanted to make clothes that would flatter her model.  Nina likes it, while Michael hopes she won’t use black all the time.  Beatrice tells the judges she loves working with knits, and the judges aren’t impressed.  Heidi calls her garments “sad.”

The judges praise Christopher’s work, especially his gown, but Michael dings him for his styling.  As for Lantie, the judges dislike her second dress, and Heidi thinks the snakeskin looks tacked on.  (It does.)  Last up is Ven, who talks about structure and fit.  The judges like both his looks, and praise his skill and sophistication.

After that, it’s time for the judges’ chat.  They start with their favorites, during which they quickly eliminate Melissa from contention, making it a two-man race between Christopher and Ven.  As for the bottom three, Kooan’s second piece was actually too restrained, Beatrice’s Aztec cape wasn’t as dramatic as she’d hoped and just obscured a nice dress.  Lantie’s looks were badly done vintage clothing.

The judges then announce their decision:  Christopher is the winner.  Ven, Melissa, and Kooan are all in, leaving Lantie and Beatrice in the bottom two.  Lantie is in, which means Beatrice is out.

Later episodes will involve a Rockettes challenge and an unconventional materials challenge in a candy store.  Plus, somebody apparently quits– which hasn’t happened since the seventh season.

Big Brother 14, July 22 – “Please Find Peace, Brother.”

Things went from bad to worse for Willie on Thursday night's live Big Brother show. He was aiming to keep Frank all along, but once his alliance with him fell through, Frank stayed anyway, and he became Head of Household on top of it. This can't be good for Willie or anyone who stuck with him on the vote, mostly Britney's other two players.

Frank is counting his blessings that he stayed, knowing that if it had been one less vote, Willie would have voted him out. Willie knows it's not good for him, but while he's made some mistakes in the game, he's just going to have to deal with them. Janelle explains that her players wanted Frank out, but after Willie had his blowup with Frank, he started thinking it would be better to keep Frank, as he and Willie will go after each other, and that keeps her players safe a little longer.

Ashley voted to evict Kara, because she felt she would have slipped under the radar the rest of the game, and that's the game she wants to play. Dan hugs Danielle and tells her he's not going to let her down the way he let Kara down. Although he's down to just one player, he thinks it's like poker. As long as you have just one chip, you have a shot at winning the whole thing. He's still okay in the game.

Frank and Boogie celebrate after the vote and HoH win, as Boogie explains in the DR that it wasn't so much Kara vs. Frank, but the House vs. Willie. The House decided the best chance they had at getting Willie out was to keep Frank in the game. Kara probably wouldn't have dared go after him, but Frank will, and Boogie plans to be beside him. He then resurrects the old Chill Town DR sessions with everything minus the fake phone. Boogie tells him he's confused as he was pretty much out the door, then had a huge fight and he doesn't remember what came next, but it was crazy. Frank clears up the confusion and says they got all of Janelle's players to keep him, then went outside and won HoH. Then they laugh and celebrate again.

Willie doesn't really want to talk to anybody at this point. The worst person possible won HoH. It changes week to week here. He's going to stay fighting and not give up and hopefully win Power of Veto followed by another HoH. Being his teammate while he was in HoH was a great thing for Shane, and winning PoV helped, but he's considering breaking his alliance with him this week, because he's such a hothead and doesn't treat people with respect.

Janelle tells Britney that Willie really needs to go. She understands and admits he needs to go. Janelle tells the DR she had an alliance with Britney, but Willie's antics made it impossible to keep that together. She tells Britney it was just one thing after another, and he's such a bully. Britney explains to the DR. that Willie went on a terror spree, everybody hates him, and it's embarrassing. She wholeheartedly regrets choosing him and will now pay the ultimate price for his behavior and bad attitude. She doesn't even want to speak to him.

Dan tells his sole player, Danielle, that what she needs to do is get closer to Janelle's team as that is their safest play. He thinks most coaches would be panicking right now, but he's a very positive thinker. There's always a way out of every situation if you can believe you can get out. He still believes Janelle's team has one more week of safety. He tells Danielle they will start to go to war and will need her. Danielle knows that's true, and just hopes to be able to survive and float.

JoJo corners Frank in the storage room and tells him she's a very loyal person and it was nothing personal against him. Her team just wanted that little alliance going. She tells the DR she wants to stay loyal to Willie, but she has to look out for number one, which is herself. She tells Frank she knows Willie is a lot of things, and she's sorry for that. He just played too hard too fast. Frank could care less. Back in the DR, she says she tried to work her magic with him, and she thinks she can convince him to stay away from her … in a good way.

Frank invites everyone up to his HoH room. This is the last thing Willie wants to do, and he's not a fake person, so it's really hard for him. Frank gets Velveeta and a t-shirt that says “Julie Chen is my homegirl.” There's a picture of him as a young boy with a mullet, and Wil thinks he pulls it off fairly well, as he has the right bone structure for it. Frank calls this all surreal. He's happy because he was on the block for awhile, but pulled it off.

Boogie gets to move into the Coach's area of the HoH suite, and for him there is a picture of his son Brady waiting for him. Danielle oohs and aahs over him. For Boogie it helps him get his mind off the game for a little bit. He promises his baby he'll be seeing him soon, but not too soon.

Watching Willie walk around the HoH room, Ian remarks that he's feasting on a plate of crow served cold. You could cut the awkwardness with a knife. Willie's not here to be comfortable, though; he's here to win a half million dollars. So as long as he's in the game, he's happy no matter where he's at.

Willie goes in to talk to Britney and she asks what's up. Obviously pissed, she tells him nothing good and asks why he's so egotistical. She just wants him to see what he's done. She made herself look bad going around saying he's a nice guy and really trustworthy, and that he just let it all get to him. She rhetorically asks who looks like the fool now. He interrupts her, and she asks him to be quiet. As much as she tried to control him, he's the raging lunatic in the house. No one wants to be attached to a sinking ship, and unfortunately, that's Willie in this game right now.

Willie only thinks about himself. He's hurting Shane and JoJo. Willie tells her he came here to pay by himself, not to play with a coach. If he stays he's not going to listen to her anymore. He doesn't know why she's treating him like a piece of crap and can't forgive him. She reminds him it's only been a day, and that he just can't keep his mouth shut. He tells her if she thinks the problem is him, then she needs to just get rid of him.

Sitting around outside later, Shane asks if anyone knows what a wenis is, then explains it's a certain part of the elbow. Believe it or not, I learned that during a destination wedding this spring, compliments of my mom. Danielle soaks it up and flirts back with him as they tickle each other. Jenn thinks it's adorable and thinks with all the craziness in the house, it's nice to see a little love blossoming. Danielle tells the DR Shane is very attractive, and his body and personality are definitely her type. He's the one chasing her, but she doesn't mind being chased. He likes the Southern belle charm, sweetness, long brown hair and accent. She's a sweetheart and it gets him every time. She thinks it things keep on going this way, it's possible.

Britney sits down to chat with Dan and Boogie and they approach the trade idea. She admits she doesn't think anyone would be willing to trade except her. Whoever wins the coaches comp can either keep a player safe, or make a trade for a player from another team. Boogie asks who she'd want in a trade. She's non-committal. Boogie wonders if she'd be willing to cut her losses with Willie and not consider a trade, noting that with him out, Shane then becomes the target. She tells him it's ridiculous to suggest that she should just sit back and know one of her players is going home and not do anything about it. She promises she's not an idiot.

Dan works on Janelle a bit and tells her he bets she's a good mom, and he knows she has to miss her husband. She admits the last time she was in the house, she just had a boyfriend, and they weren't that serious. Does that mean Dr. Will or someone pre-show? She tells him it's different when you're 25 and single. She tells the DR it's hard to be trying to think about the game, then start having thoughts of her baby girl. Dan says he's not an emotional guy, but he just wants to be a better husband to his wife. He tells the DR thinking about her is a Catch-22, as she wants him to play well. But when he thinks about her is when it's hard.

So You Think You Can Dance, July 18 – The Cruelest of Eliminations

So far, I'm not overly thrilled with the new format of So You Think You Can Dance, but I'll reserve my judgement until after tonight. All twenty will dance again, and the the judges will decide which four of the six that the fans put in the bottom after last week will go home based on what they do tonight. Confused? I'm reserving final judgement until the end of tonight's episode.

The group dance is some sort of wicked Snow White thing without the elves. The girls look like they're all the evil queens, but the guys look like they're from an outer space version of Thriller. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say it came out of the twisted mind of Sonya Tayeh, but it turns out to be from Tabitha and Napoleon D'Umas. All the dancers are announced afterwards, and I really don't remember anything I saw last week with the show on only once a week now, which is a shame.

Joining Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy on the judging panel is Adam Shankman. He tells Cat Deeley she looks like a big, sexy tomato. She offers him a bite, and he seemed likely to take her up o it. Nigel explains the post office is issuing four stamps of legendary dancers on National Dance Day, July 28.

Lindsey Arnold and Cole Haribe are taking on a Christopher Scott routine. It takes place in a dentist office, with Cole playing a nervous kid, and Lindsey playing a sexy dentist. Christopher explains it's a trip to the dentist everyone wants … “or is it?” They dance tonight to Teeth by Lady Gaga, and play their parts really well. He's nearly as engaging as the nerdy kid as he was as the martial artist last week. And she seems to be more of an equal in this week's dance.

Nigel thinks it was a fun routine to start out the show, with good characterization from Cole, but he expects it, because he thinks Cole plays a real character in real life too. Cole answers still in character. Lindsey is an incentive to go to the dentist, and Nigel suggests she go to England, because they all need their teeth done there. It did feel a little immature to him, so she needs to be careful with a character like this to be sure to be the vamp, and to play to Cole instead of the audience.

Mary tells Christopher it definitely put a smile on her face. He agrees with Nigel that Lindsey needs to be a vamp. Mary adds that not only is she outside of her dance style, she's so far removed from her personal lifestyle that it's such a stretch. But part of this show is acting, and she needs to bring that skill to the table even more. Cole is a lean, mean dancing machine, and the nerd of all nerds tonight. It's good to see him in another character, but the fact that he's still in character is a bit unnerving. Cat tells Mary he could still kick her butt, and Cole lisps out that he doesn't believe in violence.

Adam thinks the American Dental Association should adopt the routine as their new campaign, as it would certainly get people to the dentist. He tells Cole he is totally freaking him out and asks what is up with him, yet if his pants were hiked up that might mean he'd be stressed out too. Lindsey needs to attack it, and she's not a hip hop dancer, so really needs to bring all the sex she can like Jennifer Aniston in Horrible Bosses. Every move has to be there, and she should breathe and be inside of it and invest in the character.

Will Thomas and Amelia Lowe are doing a Sonya routine that has them as two souls carrying the weight of the world and looking for light at the end of the tunnel. It's heavy, treacherous, and desperate. They try so hard to find that light, and Sonia is so proud of the way it came out. They dance tonight to 3326 by Olafur Arnalds. It's an amazing Sonya piece, and the two dancers show great athleticism.

With Sonya cheering in the audience, Mary gives a scream and tells them to listen to the crowd. She thinks this week Sonya is right on top of it. “It was a beautiful routine, Sister.” Yet the dancers brought the routine to life and were just in it. She loves and respects Amelia's individuality, who has so much trust in Will right now. He took her so far past her balance point. It was such a different routine from last week, and Will really brought it. Mary heard the elevators were broken in the building today, but they just went another floor up.

Adam gives a standing O and tells Sonya they're going to have words, “because that was sickness.” Amelia is so brilliant, and not because her lines were so perfect, but she was completely lost in the piece and took him on the journey with her. Will “stepped it up” a million percent, and yes it was a plug for his movie. He was never aware of their size difference in the routine because they were so perfectly in synch.

Nigel points to Sonya's growth in choreography that has gone from strength to strength. Amelia is a great quirky character, but he loves how she buried that to immerse herself in the routine. To the pair of them he says they're lucky that they're both contemporary dancers, have each other, had wonderful choreography, and that they're both brilliant dancers.

Amber Jackson and Nick Bloxsom-Carter are doing a tango choreographed by Miriam Larici and Leonardo Barrionuevo.They want Amber and Nick to look like one dancer. Amber and Nick know they really need to connect, and she predicts it will be like bubble gum and oil. They dance their tango to Tanquera by Sexteto Mayor, and right away I am struck by the muscles in her legs. This is just so good. The dancers they have this year on the show are phenomenal. It's really a shame we only get to see them once a week. Her leg flicks are fantastic.

Adam tries to keep his character going just as Cole did. Adam tells them it was so hot. It was a great routine and the choreography suited them beautifully. Amber's dance was spectacular, and one dance series was dead on. What was really impressive aside from her lines was she fully inhabited the character. He was mesmerized with her. The good news and bad news was she was a brilliant partner. And Nick vanished a little because he was there so much for Amber.

Nigel doesn't think Nick made Amber look good; he thinks Amber made herself look good. She was a cobra ready to pounce and was frightened she was ready to slap his face at any time. It was tremendous the way she got herself in character, and she needs to remember to do the character work each week. Nick was very strong. He was in his element, and it showed. It was also great choreography from two of the world's greatest tango choreographers.

Mary thinks it wasn't only a great routine, but it was an extremely difficult routine that was physically demanding. They made it look easy, yet they were full of passion, and Amber was on fire. Nick made her watch Amber, and no one could have done the reverse pivots the way he did with Amber on their hip, and he did seven of them. Her hat's off to them.

Big Brother Live Feeds, July 21 – I Fault CBS

Warning: Spoiler ahead.

Not everyone is suited to putting up with the psychological and mental demands of Big Brother. Many people have proved it over the years. We know that CBS has the contestants go through a psychological evaluation before they allow them to be on the show, but I think sometimes they overlook some of it, knowing it will make for a good show.vAnd just because your last name is Hantz, doesn't mean you're suited for reality TV.

Russell Hantz is legendary to Survivor fans. He really should have won his first season. His other seasons not so much, as he didn't change up his game and just played the same one. People had him figured out by then. Survivor couldn't give up on the Hantz name. His nephew Brandon entered the game next, and probably made his uncle somewhat proud, but still landed in the jury.

Now that Survivor seems to have totally exhausted the Hantz name, Big Brother thought they needed to pick it up for some reason. There are four returning houseguests who are legendary enough to know their way around the CBS reality arena. They obviously know who Russell Hantz is, whether or not they're regular viewers of Survivor. There is also a super-fan of Big Brother on the show this year, and he, too, would probably know who Russell is.

Yet, Big Brother thought putting Russell's lookalike brother, Willie, on the show was a good idea. He thought he could get away with not telling anyone who he is. They all had it figured out in minutes, despite his denials. Britney, returning houseguest and his coach, tried to help him out by gving him HoH in his first week, because she figured he needed to make some deals and alliances the first week to build his game.

It was a good try, but it was too much pressure on this guy who has just an 8th grade education. He was easy pickins' for anybody. He tried to wheel and deal but just didn't know how to go about doing it. He promised Frank he wouldn't put him on the block, then put him on the block and expected him to stay loyal to their alliance. Frank, very manipulative, caught what he thought was a homophobic slur and went and spread it to the gossip monger in the house, Joe.

And really, what Willie said about Wil wasn't mocking him. It was a fairly good imitation. I've seen the mocking of gays, and this didn't have that attached to it. It was questionable mocking at best, yet Frank ran with it at first just because it irritated him, but later seemingly because he knew it would help him, and indeed it did. It saved his place in the house this week. Willie tried to argue it with him, but just ended up looking like a bigger fool making comments about eating Froot Loops. And who was egging this on? None other than Mike “Boogie” Malin, who is well-known as being ruthless.

The vote didn't go Willie's way this week, and even worse, Frank not only stayed, he became HoH. And along with that, a twist that coaches could make a trade if they won the Coaches Competition this week. There were so many ways for this to go, and some of it could have benefited Willie. But on top of all this, he went from the guy everyone wanted to talk to last week as HoH, to the most ostracized guy this week. He had no power, so no one cared to talk to him.

Janelle won the Coaches Competition and decided to not make any trades for her team. She was allowed to put some people as Have Nots and on slop and chose all three members of Britney's team, Willie, JoJo, and Shane, as well as Ian, who actually asked to be a Have Not, probably just for the experience.

Willie began saying he would be evicted from the Big Brother house before he left out the door this week. Assumably this meant he either planned to quit or figured they would kick him out. He tried to do the right thing and acknowledged that he screwed up last week and asked that the others on his team not be punished. He didn't want JoJo and Shane on slop and on the block because of his actions.

No one knows whether this was planned or a true breakdown, but the guy got really angry and went downstairs and started banging doors in the Have Not room. The feeds went to trivia for several hours, and when they came back, Willie's picture had been grayed out, and JoJo and Shane were on the block.

Boogie walked around trying to take the credit for it, saying it was the first time in Big Brother history that one player took out two people in one week, meaning Willie right now, and either JoJo or Shane at the end of the week. I wouldn't be counting my chickens yet in the Big Brother game. Anything could happen in the remainder of the week.

But is all this really Willie's or Boogie's fault? No. I look more towards CBS who put this guy in the house just based on his looks and his name. He was bound to be figured out, so they were probably looking for some drama, which they found. But an uneducated guy does not belong in this game, especially not with the lineup of BB veterans they have.

I just hope CBS gets Willie Hantz some help in dealing with what he went through these past few weeks. They put him in a situation he didn't belong in. True, he's an adult and can make his own decisions, but he has an 8th grade education! He didn't belong there.
