Big Brother 7: Week 1

Things are moving right along in the Big Brother house as the Power of Veto challenge was held on Friday. Both Co-HOHs Janelle and Jase competed as well as the nominees Alison and Danielle. It seems that this season the nominees will not be able to choose those who will compete in the POV. This time a roulette type wheel was used and determined that Kaysar and George would round out the competitors for the POV competition. After a long break, the houseguests returned from the backyard after what appeared to be a POV that had to do with smelly fish and cages. Janelle was the victor and wearing the POV necklace.

On Sunday the Power of Veto ceremony was held, as expected Janelle did not use the POV and kept the nominations the same. At this point it sounds like Alison will be getting evicted on Thursday night due to a house consensus. As for strategy talk, there is no real alliance forming and scheming as of yet. Everyone wants to go after the four from season 6 but are not unified and sure about how to accomplish this yet. Will and "Boogie" are other popular targets while Howie has gotten his feathers ruffled by Nakomis and wants to get her out next. Danielle and "Chicken" George seem to not be safe for the near future either. It all really depends on who the next heads of household are as the whole BB7 group is laying low for the time being.

Tuesday's episode on CBS pretty much was just confirmation of what the live feeds told us with the one exception of the scary slip 'n slide activity. As always CBS showed the vote as going to either Alison or Danielle while the feeds show that it was very heavily favoring Alison and have not balanced out to more of an indecision. it looks like 5 will be voting to keep Alison (Diane, Nakomis, George, Boogie and Will) and 5 will be voting to keep Danielle (Kaysar, James, Howie, Erika, and Marcellas). They have been told since there are two HOHs that a tie vote will be broken by the POV holder which is Janelle anyway. This whole plan hinges on Marcellas getting over his bitterness toward Danielle and actually casting a vote to keep her. Janelle is promising Marcellas the world as she is very threatened by Alison.

Wednesday update: Voting was completed this morning and it looks like it might be a 9-1 vote to get Alison out. Everyone got tired of her campaigning and saw Janelle would break the tie get Alsion out anyway. So now all is calm until the next HOH is decided.

Big Brother 7: Premiere

The seventh edition of Big Brother is officially underway. All 14 houseguests were correctly revealed in the audio leak from earlier in the week. Speculation is that CBS had a hand in the leak in order to create some early buzz. At this point I would certainly hope that is the case since these flubs are happening quite frequently.

One thing that was actually surprising was both the HOH competition and nominations were revealed on tonight's premiere broadcast. Usually Big Brother drags out the first nominations and eviction for a couple of weeks but its nice to know they are getting right to business. Janelle and Jase won Co-Head of Household which seems to be a permanent twist at least for the early weeks. Janelle and Jase had to agree on the nominations or else they would both be put up for elimination. Danielle and Alison were the two that tried to convince Jase to disagree with Janelle in order to get Janelle out of the house. That plan back fired as Danielle and Alison were put on the block.

The Power of Veto competition and ceremony will likely be held over the weekend as well as any food or luxury competitions. Check back to Queen TV for the latest on competition spoilers, voting/alliance talk or anything juicy that may happen on the live feeds because until CBS shows it, they are all spoilers!

Big Brother Houseguests Leaked?

CBS has done it again! Knowing that the selected houseguests moved in to the Big Brother house on July 3, those with live feed subscriptions have been watching the default screen for any indication of who is living in the Big Brother house. Well, the audio had apparently been switched on today for a while and here is the list of the 14 houseguests that are in the Big Brother house. Unfortunately there is no indication of who was voted in or who the producers chose.

BB1: George
BB2: Mike, Will
BB3: Danielle, Marcellas
BB4: Alison, Erika
BB5: Diane, Jase, Nakomis
BB6: Howie, James, Janelle, Kaysar

Also, there are indications that both Janelle and Jase are currently head of household. They need to agree on who to nominate or else they will become the nominees. No word on how the pair became head of household but it is unlikely that a competition has taken place so early in the game. Perhaps they are the highest male and female votes and the prize for winning "America's Choice" is HOH for the first week. Personally, I am very happy with the selection of houseguests for BB7 and I can't wait for the official premiere on Thursday.

Amazing Race 10 Spoilers

Now that the fall edition of the race has completed filming, the picture is pretty clear on what the spoilers are. The following is the best guess for episode by episode race route information. Location spoilers are usually very accurate but the order can change and I'll update if that is the case.

Episode 1: Race begins in Seattle goes to Beijing
Episode 2: Beijing
Episode 3: Terelj, Mongolia
Episode 4: Devonport, New Zealand
Episode 5: Queenstown, New Zealand
Episode 6: Singapore to Vietnam
Episode 7: Kuwait City, Kuwait
Episode 8: Grand Baie, Mauritius (small island east of Madagascar)
Episode 9: Madagascar
Episode 10: Lohja, Finland
Episode 11: Belarus
Episode 12: Barcelona
Episode 13: Paris, France
Episode 14: Halifax, Nova Scotia to end in New York City

I also have a good source on who the final 3 are as well as the 4th, 5th and 6th place eliminations. CBS has not released the official names and relationship of the racers but I can tell you the pairs by their descriptions. We'll match names to faces when the information comes out.

6th Place: Older Female/Younger Male team, (mother/son)?
5th Place: Younger White Male/Female team, (dating couple)?
4th Place: Black Younger Female/Female team, (sisters or friends)?
Top 3: Asian Younger Male/Female team, (dating couple)?
Top 3: White Younger Female/Female team, (sisters or friends)?
Top 3: White Younger Male/Male team, (frat boys)?

Speculation has it that the female/female team is a pair of Miss America girls and the male/male team are actually friends of reigning Survivor winner Aras.
