Big Brother 8: Live feeds update - Sept. 12

Zach hangs on in the first part of the final HOH compNow, don't laugh at me. I'm sensitive, y'know. Not only that, but I've been up all night. Someone has to watch the Head of House endurance comps at the Big Brother 8 house! Someone has to report back to you!

I knew the job was dangerous when I took it. So I settled back with a four-pack of Trader Joe's Espresso soda and unhealthy snack foods. I like to think of it as my own endurance competition. I will be the Head of House!

But if you want to know who won part one (no, it wasn't me), read on past the jump for the skinny. Severe show spoilers ahead!

As you recall from the live show, the final three houseguests were each standing on a carrot-stump as a greyhound training kind of rabbit circled about them. They each had to jump to clear the rabbit while hanging onto their key. In typical fashion, Big Brother kicked in with rain.

And so it went. Well, that is it went that way until the first non-clearing of the rabbit.. At about 12:40 AM ET, nearly three hours after the comp started, Daniele tripped over the rabbit.

She killed it. The whole shebang stopped dead in its tracks. Always thinking, Dick and Zach kept their hands on their keys even though the rabbit was just sitting there staring at them. Daniele ran off crying hysterically, took a shower, had more hysterics angry with herself.

The feeds went down for an extended time, then returned.

"Houston, we have a problem. The rabbit died."

"Doesn't that mean someone's pregnant? Evel has been looking a bit puffy around the middle lately."

From that point, it became a comedy of technical errors -- feeds blocking and unblocking, ShoToo kept getting the storage room while the actual feeds had blue vortex, staff members' voices coming through (a big no-no), and there was a sad very wet dead rabbit stuck in the middle of it all. Now, I know the rabbit was fake, but it's still tragic, isn't it? Isn't it?

They finally decided on a game plan. Dick and Zach would remain on their carrot-stumps, get doused with hot and cold water and the show must go on!

And on and on and on.

Dick went into one of his tirades going on about Zach's manhood (or lack thereof), his alleged racist comments, blah-rant-blah. The feeds got blocked again, this time for an extended period of time. When they returned, both Dick and Zach kept hanging on, getting wet, and jogging in place on their respective carrot-stumps. But not a word was exchanged between the two, not for hours.

As the comp went on, Daniele was encouraging her father. But, dang, he was fading before our very eyes. Meanwhile, Zach was like a machine. And so it went. And went and went. I know Evel Dick was all about doing it for Daniele, but I was hoping they had an ambulance waiting to cart him away. RoboZach nary missed a beat.

The agaony of defeat.Finally, at 5:23 AM ET, about 7½ hours into it, Dick gave up. I think he probably looked Death in the eye and decided he didn't want to die on Big Brother 8 live feeds to a geeky internet audience.

Zach turned to him and said, "You're incredible."

Zach has won part one of the three-part HOH comp. If my mind is still working after watching a rabbit get murdered by a blonde Donato and almost watching Dick go into the trauma unit, I believe the second part pits Dick and Daniele against each other. The third would be Zach against the winner of the second part.

They're cold, I'm tired. And I have no more Trader Joe's Espresso soda. So, I'll bid adieu to you for now, leaving you with a YouTube clip of the feeds -- it shows how unevenly matched in the comp these two were. I recorded it about a half-hour before Dick packed it in.

What a dissapointment!
Is this a good thing? Nasty, abusive people win?
Bulling and degradeing. Is that what we teach our children, anything goes. Game or not, it's very disappointing. Let's see a game won with integrity and skill. Evil Dick and his sweet little spoiled daughter may be going home with the money but when that's gone, what will be left? I'm thinking 6 months or less and she won't be speaking to the dirt bag again!
What Jerks!

AND ANOTHER THING. Why was Jen punished for eating, when on slop and Daniele not given a penalty for not putting on her microphone after being asked repeatedly to do so... Her comment was "I'M NOT TALKING". Slap her with a penalty.... No double standards. How come Amber and Jameka can't talk to the media or the live daily show, because of a conversation regarding jewish people, when Dick continues to trash talk and call names to Zake about being a pervert, a raciest and all his crude remarks about gays; goes unnoticed.

Zack has to be the winner. Danille is just as evil and vendictive as her fowl mouth daddy, she feeds Evil Dick and he trashes everyone but his precious little off spring.

Zack could have stooped to EVIL level and taunted him with nasty remarks about his daughter and his family, but he didn't. I hope ZACK, hits him below the belt right before the next competition (as that is Dick's style, use it on him). I LOVED SEEING THE POOR CHILD, WHO CLAIMS TO BE AN ADULT, bawl her eyes out, then to see her snug as a bug in a rug, while her Daddy was freezing to win hoh.

Did Dick really win part 2 and not throw it to Dani?

You are right pop. It is no coincidence that Zach is winning so much at the end. It seems he took the Dr. Will strategy of laying low and letting the "alpha" dogs pick each other off and only truly competed when he knew his ass was on the line.

I personally believe if it wasn't for Americas player, either Dick or Danielle would have been voted out by now.
