9/16 Show Recap

What's new with the final two? Let's find out!

Dick gave Zach credit for stepping up his game when it mattered most. Dick hopes that this happy ending to the game will be a happy start to his relationship with Daniele. Dick says that him and Daniele are the best team to have ever played the BB game. Daniele would never have thought that being in the house with her father would be worth it. BB gave Daniele and Dick a final feast in the house. Daniele thinks that she has had the hardest time in the house emotionally. BB rehashed the emotional roller coaster Daniele and Dick have been on regarding their relationship.

Dick thinks that the jury views him and Daniele as one person. Dick thinks that Daniele will win the game, but Daniele thinks that Dick will win. Dick says that there is no way the jury will vote for him because of all of his personal attacks on other HG. BB then rehashed some of these moments. Dick agrees that Amber and Jameka were the biggest Christians in the house, which sent in another BB rehash. Yet another rehash was created when Dick mentioned Jameka's "magic ping pong ball."

Daniele was depressed about switching from the little room to the big room. Dick mentioned Daniele and Nick being in "her corner," which sent in yet another more sentimental BB rehash. Dick trashed Eric and Jessica's so-called showmance, which...you guessed it! More rehashing!

Dick reenacted Jen's overreaction over her memory wall picture, which reminded us all of the infamous event. Daniele and Dick rehashed all the wonderful things about Jen, which brought BB to do the same. Dick loved seeing Jen melt down after being backdoored during week 7. Daniele says that Amber will be best remembered for crying more than any other HG in BB history. Dick got his wish - an Amber crying montage! Dick remembers how Amber flipped out on Eric for using her "secret" against her.

Time to review the fun moments of the game! These moments included Zach streaking, Eric and Jessica switching clothes, and Eric and Jen wrestling. The final two also rehashed some of their favorite competitions such as the butter food competition, pasta food competition, glass-balancing PoV, and getting-naked luxury competition. Daniele thinks that Eric played the mustard prank but hopes that Nick did it. Daniele thinks that Dustin and Eric were reponsible for the hinky votes, but Dick thinks that Eric cast both of them. Daniele and Dick agree to take a European vacation after the show.

Who will win BB8? Find out Tuesday!

I think it's a shame that Danielle and Dick are in the final two. I think they are both losers.

Thanks for the update, I couldn't bring myself to watch the recap of that train wreck.

Anonymous said...

it was hard to watch tonight's recap of all the times in the house because of knowing where things are at now.

Danielle complains that Jen was self centered... wow is that calling the kettle black! She is way more self centered and self serving then Jen ever was. (And I NEVER cared for Jen).

Dick may have not been a perfect parent (who is??) all a parent can do is try to do their best with the tools they have. Dick openly said he screwed up and has worke all summer to rebuilt from this point forward their relationship. In seeing the clips on tonights show just brought home that he is doing all he can and she is not even doing her part to meet him 1/2 way. arghhh The past is done, right or wrong it is done. the power lies right in the here and now to make a choice to have a relationship or not. Based on Dani's lack of willingness to try' it is my guess that she will cut off Dick after the show wraps. Dick will win and yet lose the greatest thing in all this. All because Dani wont stand up and work as an adult to fix this relationship. How Sad.

CBS ~ I hope you are willing to help these two post the close of the show and get them professional help to work towards a resolution. Don't just use and toss them out, these are people you have made a profit off of. Just go the extra mile and make a difference in two people's lives.

> Dick thinks that the jury views him and Daniele as one person.

Duh! I don't have the feeds, missed the first few shows, and watched maybe 4 hours total of BBAD and considered them both as one player. Can't believe Dick would think the other houseguests on the jury would see it differently.

I've come to see that Dick really wanted a relationship with this daughter, and that's why he came on the show. He thought if I help her win, then she'll love me again. They would have done better by going to counseling, and not try to mend a broken relationship on TV, and live TV at that.

Tonights show was an absolute joke. CBS is trying to make it look like fuzzy bunnies and beautiful rainbows surrounding Dick and Daniele thanks to Big Brother. BIg Brother brought these two back together: WHATEVER!

Daniele isn't even speaking to Dick because she's such a brat...why not show everyone without the live feeds Daniele's true colors CBS???

I'm thrilled that their the final 2. I'm not crazy about how Dick treated others but I think it was all stradegy, which happened to work.
The only other person that I would of wanted to win is Jessica. Everyone else was annoying and idiots.

Anonymous said...

Was tonight's show live? If not when was it taped? Because they acted like they were speaking tonight. HOwever, in all reality they'e not. Also I read on one of the BB Blogs that the argument that Dick & Daniele had that resulted them not speaking for 2 years was due to money. Does anyone see the irony in this? Here they $550,000.00 richer combined, and once again it seams as though they're are problems once again. And the discussion about them going to Europe, did anyone cathch her saying not together. The look on his face was a little shocking and hurt.

I would of puked had Zack won!!
I know Dick and Dani got on some peoples nerves but they both did play great, much better than Zack. Maybe Zack should of tryed harder sooner but he came off looking like an idiot most of the time.
Thank god he didn't win!!

Anonymous said...

I know I felt so bad for Dick! He might annoy some people but its obvious he loves his daughter and that comment hurt him.
Honestly I would of said the same thing that Daniele did at her age after being stuck for months in the house with a dad I hadn't talked to in years.
Wouldn't you want to get out and get away alone, not with your parent that you just spent months with? Think how you would of felt at 21. I can see her point of view, and as a parent I can see his point.

Anonymous said...

Dick & Dani didn't win anything, it was given to them. CBS made a decision from the very beginning that they would be featured and the shows script would be written around them. They were never in danger of not being in the final two.

I'm about sick of all of you who said that Dick bad-mouthing the HG was strategy. No, that is the way he is because the game is pretty much over and he is still talking ugly about the other HG.

Anonymous said...

What little I saw of the CBS chats and boards, they would have you think that this year was exciting, emotional and everyone was happy with the outcome. Like we should care if these two hate filled people should patch they're differences. I don't wish them to be hurt, but you reap what you sow. Evidently Dick is proud of the fact that he is evil and can delude himself into thinking he's fine with it. Sad that he can't get through to his daughter? Yes. Danielle wallows in the injustice and sympathy she can get from being his daughter. But when she thinks no one is looking she uses him to her advantage. Still, there are others far more deserving of sympathy than these two. They certainly don't have any sympathy for others.

Anonymous said...

Good for him. I really glad he is. He is the only one who speaks the truth out of all of them and the other HG's are SORE BITTER LOSERS!

Tonight's show was not live. It was taped earlier this weekend. (either late Friday or Saturday).

Saturday at mindinght Dick and Dani under went questioning by the Jury House. The Jury House could see Dick and Dani but Dick and Dani could not see the Jury House. I am not sure why that was.

As of this moment, Dick and Dani are not speaking. Dani is upset and is blaming Dick for her bad treatment by the jurors. Dick was VERY attentive to Dani during her melt down after the questioning and Dani rejected everything he tried to do. They ended up separtating and hours later Dick was in tears and beside himself. Repeating to himself that if he wins he loses and that she (Dani) will not ever work towards mending their relationship.

There was some really great feeds posted on youtube this morning that showed this emotional momment for Dick in his bedroom by himself. It was hard to watch. Dick may be a hard ass but he is also a man that truly loves his daughter and his heart is broken.

I hope by Tuesday that Dick and Dani have found mutual ground to start a real mending. Dick loves Dani and I think that Dani wants to love her Dad but she isn't willing to meet him 1/2 way...

It's a sad moment in BB history if CBS does nothing to help these two out.

Why the heck would CBS care enough to fix it so Dick and Dani would win? They wouldn't. Giver you your conspiracy theories people! Let it go!

Anonymous said...

Well I think that Dick should win this. You know watching tonights show. Just was just proof of time and time again Danni is a little Bitch. She crys and bitches more than anyone else. I really hope that Dick wins and stops talking to her. Her and Nick can run off and have a nice life. Dick and his son can do the same. I just really hope that Dick sets out some money for his sons schooling.

Let me guess. The player you were hoping to win is either at home, or in the jury house?

Dick made others in the house cry or feel bad. Could this be his justice. Whatever you put out into the world can come back on you two fold. It doesn't have to come from the person you actually did it to.

I found the show entertaining as it was designed to be. My favorite people didn't make the final two but I'm not complaining. "Thats Enterainment"

Anonymous said...

I quit watching after Jen left because I couldn't believe Dick was left on the show after that cruel verbal (and near physical) attack on her and his filthy badgering of Jameka's religous beliefs. Dick wants the love of his daughter?...yeah, cursing at everyone and badgering them (because his vocabulary is so limited and he is so emotionally immature) and then saying "it's strategy" just proves what a creep he is. As for Danielle, she is a little bitch who used her father during all the shows I watched. Father and daughter? They are so much alike. They deserve each other. Final two? Dick should have been kicked off the show weeks ago by CBS. They've done it for less in other years. BB has hit a new low. Final show...final winner...who cares?

Anonymous said...

One has to wonder if Dick so love his daughter, why didn't he try to be a parent to her when she younger. Seems like both of their plans are backfighting and hidden agendas being revealed.

Daniele was allowed to hide behind Dick, but now she realizes, after the jury's questioning, that others saw it, too. Winning competitions allows one to win the game, IF they win either HOH or POV every single week. And, no one has done that.

And, why is it, when they dislike someone, or say ugly things, about them, then it's all strategy, but when such is directed back at them from others, then it's personal. They have been ragging on others who left the house weeks ago. What's the point. Just goes to show they have nothing else to talk about, which is really sad and telling. How long can you sit around and talk badly, about other people? That's why they keep repeating the same things over and over.

Both of them are in deep denial. And, that's why they have a bad relationship.

Anonymous said...

CBS can't manipulate the show. There is an agency that watches all game show to make sure there on the up and up because of something that happened in the '50s. Anyway, Dick and Dani were a secret alliance from the start. The producer who was on house calls even let it slip on friday. So some of their fighting, I think, was staged to make the other house guests think they hate each other.

Anonymous said...

Anon 11:32 - So true; just goes to show they had a helping hand getting to the final two so that CBS/BB could act like they're Dr. Phil or something, and patch things up between these two.

I mean come on...tonights show was so cheesy and it showed nothing close to reality: which is Dani giving Dick the silent treatment over how the jury acted which was out of his control!

Anonymous said...

Anon 11:35 PM, so you think their fights, over the past couple of days, are being staged so those with live feeds and BBAD think they hate each other?

One can only pretend for so long.

Anonymous said...

I did not want to see either of these two winning the money, but since this is now the case, best scenerio will be for Dick to win. Reason being that hopefully when he gets out of the house and receives his money, his son will talk him out of spliting the money with Danielle. She won't need it and doesn't deserve to get more than what she will already get.

Anonymous said...

What's really a shame, in reading all this and the live feed postings, is that the only time dick and dani seem to 'bond' is in their cut downs, put downs and hatred of everyone else who was in that house. No one could EVER be as strategic as they have been, no one was ever as smart, as 'truthful', as competitive...

Anonymous said...

Dani did hide behind her dad on many occassions. She has issues and probably needs professional help. It could be that she is too young, uneducated, ignorant, or naive. It seems that Dick really wanted to make amends for prior problems. Too bad she won't go there yet. Dick deserves to win despite the goofy stuff he has pulled in the house.

Sometimes I wonder if we all watched the same show. There are such opposite interpretations.

Tell me about it! All you haters were obviously not watching the same show I was. They both dominated the competitions or they would of been voted out.

And you all complain about Dick and Daniele talking about everyone while you sit here talking about them, and the clips they've shown of the jury, they are talking badly about Dick and Daniele. Why is it ok for others to talk bad about them but when they do the same, their evil?

I would have to guess that BB did this not-so-entertaining re-cap show tonight so as not to compete with the Emmies.

Lucky said...

Someone said that Dick's mouthing off to everyone was not strategy and that, that was just how he was, but if you will remember, he said several times that he was going to "make peoples lives miserable" in the house as a matter of strategy to do all sorts of things from getting them to hate him so they would like Dani better (and it worked a bit, remember her speech in the HOH room) and also to keep people frazzled for competitions. I imagine that in real life Dick can be a real d*** once in a while if he is crossed, but in the house, he was really over the top due to both stress and strategy!

lucky said...

Someone said, and it may have been on the previous post, that Dick just went on the show to try to mend his relationship with his daughter and that it was a crummy idea, but this theory is not correct because none of the 3 twists in the show (Dick, Dustin and Jessica) knew what was going on or who was going to be in the house that they knew until after they were in it!
He did not do this to mend his relationship. Also, Dani said that he had been trying to get on the show for 3 years. I think he wanted to get on the show because he would like the exposure and like to be on TV. He is a name dropper after all and to be able to say that he was on the show will make him a minor celeb. To win would make him a bit more famous and after all, he is a really great character and all the controversy that he causes is exactly was works for television. CBS is very happy that these two made it to the final 2, but they did not make it that way or influence it. That would be fraud and they would be opening themselves up to lots and lots of law suits. They are not stupid that way.

I sort of hope Dick wins but in a way I hope that Dani wins because that is what I feel Dick would really like. It will be interesting to see what happens.

I think that Dick and Danielle do deserve to be in the final 2. I honestly never thought Dick would make it to this point because of his crudeness but everything he has done thus far in the game he has done selflessly for his daughter and his wish to see her advance.. Even if it put him up as the mark. Yes he was brutal at times but you cannot say he wasn't honest in his thoughts or words. He gave every houseguest more than enough reasons to get rid of him with his slicing tongue but they have no one to blame but themselves for not voting him off as they had the opportunity to do so, so his survival and advancement to the final two was a choice made by them. He was a father of two small children at the age of 23, and if he is 44 and Danielle is 21 she is only two years older than he would've been as a father. One should never judge this man and his choices in life especially at that young age. I believe that all people are fallible and no man or woman during their lifetime has not made a choice or decision that they have not regretted or second thought. Imperfections are what makes us human and differentiates us from a greater power or one's belief in their chosen religion. Who knows if years from now Dick will also regret some of the hurtful things he has said during his stay in the house to other HG’s. Is it any worse than the hatred towards him the other quests have expressed behind the sanctuary of the diary room door? Other HG's have said a lot of equally nasty things about Dick and Danielle but only in the diary room under the guise of being an ally, as the "game" is played. After other HG’s touting themselves as "Good Christians" or the bloggers that call him a cursing no good man and in the next breath call his daughter a Bitch? That is what forgiveness is for, which Danielle needs to do. The sheer fact that he has exposed his vulnerability and displayed remorse in his decision to leave his children with his mother to America shows that he is human and in fact a man who obviously loves his children and is taking steps to repair that relationship in perhaps the best way he knows how. But at least he is trying. If he didn't leave them with his mother would he have been able to raise them better? Danielle and her brother are not alone in being raised by their grandmother. Would it have been better to be abandoned to adoption or sent to child services? I think NOT... that's why I do not understand all the focus on Dick being such a horrible dad. As I understand Danielle’s' hurt in feeling abandoned by her Dad makes her feel as "1" in actuality in the US alone it is estimated that over 8 million children under the age of six are being raised by grandparents and that number grows every year. Caring for a grandchild may be necessary because a parent is ill, in turmoil, a case of death, serious substance abuse, or incarceration and if they are placed in the loving home and the sanctuary of their grandparents for that they should be thankful. I have missed a few episodes but has it ever been revealed what ever happened to the mother of Danielle or her brother? As for Danielle I am ashamed of myself for originally stereotyping her in my mind as a dumb beautiful blond only to see that she is not only pretty but a very smart and savvy player as she proved in her ability to win POV 7 X's and HOH 2 X's thus far. I only hope that Danielle in the end can find peace in her life and forgiveness in her heart for a hurt she obviously carries or she will never truly be happy. Whether Danielle wins all the money or not as the old adage money can't buy happiness is true. If she wins I would only hope she would share it with her Dad as I believe he would for her or would even give it up to regain her love but let's be hopeful that he doesn't have to buy her love in the end. I'll keep a positive thought that she is not playing him either to win it all...as I think he’d do anything for her.

Read slow: There were still 3 other people that voted to keep Dick in. (Jen,Zach, and Dani).


OK GOOD JOB ENGLISH MAJOR, I ALREADY SAID THAT GLAD YOU COULD PICK UP ON THAT, SO THATS 3 VOTES FOR DICK. THEN YOU HAVE JAMEKA, AMBER AND ERIC VOTING TO GET RID OF DICK. THATS MAKES JESS THE TIE BREAKER. HENCE EVEL DICK GONE, PLEASE TELL ME YOU REALLY ARENT THIS STUPID. I WOULDNT INSULT YOU IF YOU WOULD PULL YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ???


SECOND HOW WOULD WE KNOW ERIC WOULD HAVE VOTED TO GET RID OF EVEL DICK?? PLAIN AND SIMPLE HE SAID SO DID YOU ACTUALLY WATCH THE SHOW, ERIC SAID THAT AMERICA WAS SCREWING UP HIS STRATEGY, AND OBVIOUSLY HE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO CHANGE HIS TACTICS ACCORDINGLY. THIS ISNT HARD TO FOLLOW, BUT APPARENTLY MAYBE YOU DIDNT ACTUALLY WATCH THE SHOW. GO TO CBS.COM YOU CAN WATCH ALL THE RERUNS.

Second: If America HATED Dick so bad, as so many people are posting, how come he was NOT chosen by America, to be evicted? Also, if America HATED Dick so bad, how come he was never nominated to go on the block.


THIS IS EASY TO ANSWER CBS EDITED THE SHOW TO MAKE DICK MORE LIKABLE, BUT ANY BUDDY WHO SAW THE LIVE FEEDS, WOULD HAVE VOTED DIFFERNTLY CBS PORTRAYED DICK IN A MUCH BETTER THAN THE LIVE FEEDS DID, IF YOU DIDNT SEE THEM YOU MISSED OUT ON ALOT OF FOUL STUFF DICK DID AND SAID, WHAT YOU SAW ON TV WAS SO G RATED COMPARED TO THE R VERSION ON THE LIVE FEEDS.


AS FOR YOUR ENGLISH COMMENT WHATEVER, LIKE I CAN SERIOUSLY TAKE NEGATIVE CRITICISM FROM SOMEONE WHO CANT EVEN FIGURE OUT THE CONCEPT OF A 3 TO 3 TIE, BROKEN BY JESSICA. AMERICAS PLAYER CONTROLLED EVERYTHING THAT WENT ON IN THE HOUSE, HE INFLUENCED HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD ON TWO SEPERATE OCCASIONS, OPEN YOUR EYES AND ACTUALLY TRY TO STOP BEING BLIND TO THE TRUTH

jO MOMMA!

ED would never do that to her.

The thing with ED that the other HGs probably can accept now is, yes he's a dick, but he is very much an equal opportunity dick.

And to keep with this tradition now that the rigging of the game that the Donatos/CBS/BB has done, next years BB I will have 8 of my family members competing.

They will all be under 21, but close enuough (worked for the Donatos). We will get coded letters sent to us. We will know ahead of time we would all be on the show. We will pour things on everybody for whatever reason, even if they weren't talking to us, but we wanted to just be a weenie. We will burn them with cigarettes, hide their clothes, and I am sure there are somemore things that I forgot.

Oh, rag on other HG and if/when they decide to yell back cry to BB and have BB make them stop trach talking just like in part 1 of BB8s competition!

I hope we can compete with those "So called best players in BB history (Donatos)!!!"

Anonymous said...

2:32 Am Not true. They did know. After the other HG were gone D & D discussed about knowing in advance and even sharing a limo on the way over. They stated that if they didn't agree to be on together then neither one would have been on. They even indicated that Joe & Dustin knew but they weren't sure about Jessica & Carol.

So, as far as I'm concerned the show was unfair. And I don't think either one deserves the money. Abuse should never be rewarded. Yes, before you say it, I'm he loves his daughter. But as I've said before, she is HIS daughter, what can you expect? They are not actors, so the behavior is who they are. Dick can call his behavior strategy, but it was pure abuse. Dani is a spoiled, abrasive whiney brat. Claims not to like her father, but she sure used him. She learned from the best.

CBS has taken a fun show and ruined it thius year.

Who can say? You can what if, until the cows come home, but it doesn't change what actually happened. Besides, I am sure there are a lot of adoptive children who are glad they were adopted. Why shouldn't Dick held accountable to his choices in life, regardless of this age. The rest of us are expected to be held accountable for our actions.

Granted he was in his early 20's, when his first child was born, so the question then becomes, why have a second one. Obviously, he (and his wife) was unprepared to be a parent. Newsflash, many parents aren't, but many they don't go give their children to their parent to raise. They be responsible and do the best they can to raise THEIR children. If they don't, then to try and come back 15 years into your child's life, to parent and don't be upset if they aren't receptive and angry at you.

Hopefully, each will take some of their winnings, and get professional help. Traveling and seeing the world is good, but if they don't change, and act and behave on those "I love you's", then in 6 months, they'll be back to not speaking again.
