And Brandi Glanville got SUPER drunk Wednesday night, but that's hardly a spoiler.
CBS launched its first U.S. season of "Celebrity Big Brother" on Wednesday Feb. 7. The show was pre-taped, and Thursday night's show will continue that format until Friday's live eviction.
But the live feeds were turned on after Wednesday's show -- after some sneak peek glimpses of feeds during the week -- allowing fans to catch up on what we've missed.
The February 7 show ended with Shannon Elizabeth as the first Head of Household and Omarosa Manigault *somehow* earning immunity from the comp and the vote. Then Julie Chen introduced the next twist: The HGs had to grab a "celebrity gift bag" -- one of those bags had a special power allowing the holder to "recast" the role of HoH with someone else.
We'll see on Thursday that "The Cosby Show" star Keshia Knight Pulliam becomes the new HoH, cancelling out Shannon's rule.
Two guys are nominated on the block:
- "Big Time Rush" actor/singer James Maslow
- UFC light heavyweight champ Chuck Liddell
James has rubbed a lot of people the wrong way, and he almost beat Shannon at the HoH comp. Shannon has been on a tear, though, and we'll see that she also won the Power of Veto competition, which was a spelling comp.
As far as things stand now (Thursday morning) the nominations are staying the same. Keshia and Shannon seem to be on the same page, running the house together this week. Shannon will be on everyone's radar, though, which could make her the next target.
For now, James appears to be the first eviction target.
UPDATE: On Thursday night into Friday, there was a flip conference, with a few HGs thinking they should keep James and oust Chuck. Chuck is now seen by some as the bigger threat -- along with Omarosa and Keshia. So much for the women's alliance! It lasted maybe two days. They may just be playing out the vote for drama, since Friday is the live show, but it at least *appears* that the vote was still being decided on Friday and could go either way.
James is working the house to try and stay, but he looks like he's in trouble. He may not mind leaving too much, though. The feeds have shown him -- and especially former NBA star Metta World Peace -- getting annoyed with the "Big Brother" conditions. They'd be happy to leave.
James to Mark- I am going to be a little relieved if I end up going home, to be honest. I have a strategy for tomorrow. We will see if it works. If it doesnt, I'm going to be relieved to go #CBBUS#BBCeleb— Big Brother Daily (@BB_Updates) February 8, 2018
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville has not helped make the house more livable, although she's going to be drama gold for viewers. She got crazy drunk Wednesday night -- putting on a show for viewers, since they all knew the live feeds had just come on.
Apparently Drunk Brandi also threw Shannon under-the-bus, which Shannon did not appreciate. Omarosa, of all people, stepped up and said they have to do better and not let Brandi drink that much. It's self-serving for that whole women's alliance to shut Brandi up, since she gets sloppy and talks too much.
The first week of #BBCeleb (or #CBBUS, if you prefer) continues Thursday, Feb. 8 at 8 p.m. on CBS, and then live Friday, Feb. 9 for a two-hour show from 8 to 10 p.m.
