If what we've overheard is correct, these pics are what we will be watching in exactly 12 hours on Showtime. Yes, supposedly tonight's cable show will NOT be live.
Today is definitely eviction day, and it's pretty clear already that we're not going to see part one of the HOH contest...at least not on Showtime. Come on, BB, give us online viewers a break!

Sharon annoyed the hell out of me on tonight's CBS broadcast, but I feel really bad for her right now. She's now had to deal with Sheila for the past half hour. I guess it was her turn to hear about how she's helped everybody get further in the game, and has done nothing to deserve what's now happening.
Sheila, you made it to the final four! You accomplished this without winning anything outside of a HOH that Ryan and Natalie handed to you. You would have been gone the very first week if Sharon's ex-boyfriend hadn't opened his mouth.
Ryan is adamant with Adam that he doesn't have a deal with Sharon.
Am I mistaken? Didn't Ryan and Sharon cut a deal a while ago to take each other to the final two?
I think that Ryan will break that agreement and bring Adam to the final two if he wins HoH - but I think Sharon will take Ryan if she wins the final HoH.

Hello, my friends. Welcome to the beginning of the last week of this season’s Big Brother. Tonight’s episode should be action-packed, as we’re going to see and episode and a half crammed into one show.
You know, I normally hate the recaps, but I’m enjoying the fall of Natalie, whose look when informed the votes are tied is priceless.
Oooh, we get more of Natalie’s eviction, including her Sharon Stone-ish move when told she’s evicted. (Well, close to Sharon Stone.) Before showing Ryan’s vote, he admits that he and Adam had decided that she needs to go because she’ll be tough to beat in the future. “Me and Adam agreed that we were going to make this a split vote, and Natalie nor Sharon needs to know who voted which way. This will put the blood on Sheila’s hands, and Natalie going to the jury house didn’t need to know who voted where.”
But Adam ruins this evasive plan, as he whispers to Natalie that he voted for her. Ryan’s not happy. “Bullshit.” They show Sheila’s vote to evict, and Natalie asks Adam why they did this. “She felt totally let down; totally betrayed; totally screwed over, man,” says Adam. “I feel bad for her.”
Natalie repeatedly asks why they did this to her, but neither respond. “This has been the hardest decision up to this point in this game that I’ve had to make, by far. I truly felt bad today.”
Continuing to ask why they did this, Natalie finally leaves the house. Ryan says that with Natalie gone, “Team Christ has passed away, and will never be resurrected.” Ha! Of course, Sheila makes the event all about her. “I didn’t want to be put in a position like that!” In the diary room, Sheila admits that she “got some satisfaction with her walking out that door. You kind of opened your mouth, and took that foot, and you inserted it.” Sheila could learn a lot by listening to herself.
For the first time all year, Sharon shows some emotion. Squealing like she does when she’s feeding the “beebies”, she proclaims that “it feels awesome that I’m still here! It’s amazing that somebody can be on the block five times and get so far in the game.”
But there does seem to be a division in the bro’s. When Adam claims that she’ll have no idea who voted for her, Ryan calls him out. “You sat there and told her, dude.” “Huh?” “I read your lips, dude.” “Huh?” Adam goes on to say that he didn’t mean to, which Ryan obviously doesn’t believe. Sheila has to pipe in, and she tells Adam he shouldn’t have done that. Adam also mounts a defense in the diary room, but I can’t figure out what the hell he’s saying. This debate goes on for a bit longer, but Ryan still doesn’t believe Adam, and is pissed that he was thrown under the bus.
Finally, we move on to the HOH competition, and the controversial final question about the third pre-existing relationship. While us viewers saw that this extra “relationship” was the guinea pigs (which I must admit I didn’t catch the first time through), the contestants aren’t told, and this news overshadows Ryan’s HOH win.
First we have the tie-breaker in the HOH comp, which saw Ryan beat Sharon. As you may expect, Ryan is ecstatic because it means he has “seven more days of safety”, but adds that “all three should be worried”. Sharon is happy that Ryan won because of their “alliance”, and claims that she can help him down the road. Down the road? There’s only a few days left!
Adam’s also happy, but realizes there may be “some distrust” between the two of them. “I just don’t want it to blow up on me.” Attempting to distract Ryan, he’s the first to bring up the controversial news about another relationship. Everybody points fingers at each other, but Ryan thinks it all has to do with Sheila. In the diary room, they all say they know anybody else…except for the “beebies”, who inform us they’re sisters. (Oh boy, Ash will be happy to see that clip.)
Sheila actually plays along, saying that there’s some resemblance between her and some of Ryan’s relatives. Ryan also has fun with it, calling her “Auntie Sheila”. The joking ends quickly, as Sheila quickly gets offended by the constant chatter about her.
But Ryan really believes it does involve Sheila, as he tells Adam later outside. Now maybe it’s a relative of Sharon. At the same time, Sheila is asking Sharon who voted for Natalie, and Sharon claims to know. After being interrupted by Adam, Sharon nods to Sheila that it’s him. Once again, Sheila’s upset. “I can’t believe he did that.”
Meanwhile, Adam is kissing Ryan’s ass, and appears a bit worried when Ryan says he “doesn’t have to please anybody this week”. Can the bro’s alliance be finished? Stay tuned after commercials.
It’s time to see Ryan’s HOH, and all he hopes for is a letter from Jen. Oh, and more pics. Of course, he gets what he wants. Seriously, why do we need to sit through this worthless segment?
We go back to the boys playing golf outside, and another worthless segment featuring Adam speaking like a robot. Sheila, as expected, is annoyed by “Robotic Adam”. “Can you get any more annoying?”
Now Adam is reading the Bible, and Sheila uses the opportunity to beg Adam to stick up for her. He continues to read, but promises that he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. It’s still not enough for Sheila. “This guy is going to have to show me some loyalty. I just haven’t really seen it.” She admits that she’s done a lot to him, but wouldn’t be able to live with herself if she had to see him walk out.
Adam is now up in the HOH with Ryan, and attempts to act like nothing bad has happened between the two of them. “Everything’s accomplished. We’re good.” Ryan confronts him again on the Natalie situation. Adam again denies it, but we’re shown a replay that shows he’s not telling the truth. Ryan tells him he believes him, but he’s pissed that Adam’s lying.
It’s product placement time once again. This time it’s for the surely awful Ashton Kutcher/Cameron Diaz suckathon. Seriously, how could this movie be watchable? Being cultural retards, though, the houseguests are excited.
To play the game, the four had to pair up in teams. Sharon immediately said she wanted to team up with Ryan, which (as expected) pisses off Sheila. “Oh, great. Thanks, Sharon.” Adam’s also happy, though.
Once again, it’s another Vegas-oriented game. Sheila’s confident, though, when she sees the pile of wine bottles. “This could be my kind of game.” So the winner of this game gets not only a sneak preview of the movie, but an invite to the world premiere and the after-party. Adam says that if he wins, he wants to make the moves on Cameron Diaz. Good luck with that, buddy.
They have to break open the prop wine bottles on their partner’s heads and look for rings that go on the board. The loser, though, must have to be connected to each other for 24 hours. Sheila HAS to win because she CANNOT be chained to Adam. “Are you frickin’ kidding me?” I won’t bore you with the details, but Sharon and Ryan won. Sheila’s more than pissed, as (once again) expected.
Another wasted segment – the house guests get to see the table shrunk to a “mini”. Can somebody please stop Sharon from squealing? I absolutely hate women who do that. Poor Natalie, though. Her only reason for wanting to stay another week was to see that table.
Once that segment is completed, we now have part two of the product placement segment. Ryan comes out and says it is movie time, and Sharon squeals again. Please, please stop doing that! Sheila is still bummed, especially when she sees the vintage cars sitting outside. She continues to bitch about being shackled to Adam.
Of course, Sharon and Ryan love the movie. When it ends, Sharon squeals again. (Ugh.)
It’s now Ryan’s turn to listen to Sheila whine. Ryan informs her that she is indeed going up on the block, but attempts to make her believe she’s safe because Sharon and Adam are going to be going after each other because they’re bigger threats. Sheila voices her concerns about Adam, and asks about what Adam said to Natalie. Luckily, Ryan’s too smart to really tell her anything.
Later, Sharon whispers to Ryan that she thinks they should talk. While Adam is reading the Bible and Sheila is doing laundry, Sharon attempts to talk Ryan into putting up Adam. “I don’t trust him for two seconds. He’s trying to keep the blood off his hands.” Ryan tells her the entire deal about splitting Natalie’s votes. “It’s risky if you don’t put him up. As long as we stick together, we can be final two.”
It’s now finally nomination time, and Adam is feeling nervous. “(I really) hope that the thing with Natalie doesn’t come and bit me on my back side.” Sharon feels pretty confident, though. “I definitely feel that I can trust my alliance. I trust that Ryan and I can pull this through. But at the same time, you can never feel safe in this house.”
As you may expect, Sheila’s in bad shape. “I saved him from the block, but right now I feel like I’m on the outside looking in. That scares me to think that I may be the one going up on the block.”
Ryan goes through the scripted portion of the segment before finally announcing that it’s time for nominations. He pulls out Adam’s key, and then tells the girls he rewarded Adam for what they had to go through last week. He stresses the importance of the POV competition and says that he wants one of them to win, which a tearful Sheila shrugs off.
Sharon says that even though she’s nominated, she has a “whole lot of faith” in Ryan and herself. Adam is pleased, but he’s worried because it’s “still up in the air, man”. Sheila continues to bitch that it’s bad enough that she’s nominated, but “I’m going to be shackled to Adam for 24 hours!” She’s already shackled, and Adam smirks as she babbles this nonsense.
And that’s it for tonight’s episode! It ended up being a normal episode, even though we were led to believe that they were going to also squeeze in the veto competition. Oh well. See ya in 48 hours!
With those words, Adam has re-confirmed who he will keep in the house this week (Sharon)
Sharon went to Ryan earlier and told him that Adam wanted her to promise she would take him to the final two because he knows Sheila would if he kept her (and didn't vote her out).
Ryan thinks he might want to save Sharon with the POV and get her to vote out Sheila. Ryan really doesn't want her in the house - he feels Sheila will take either Sharon or Adam over him.
Ryan has a final two deal with Sharon and Adam. Adam has a final two deal with Ryan and Sheila.
Now Ryan is confronting Adam and he admits he talked to Sharon but that what he said was twisted by Sharon - he felt Sharon was saying that she had a deal with Ryan.
Adam is dead on - Sharon does have a deal with Ryan but Ryan denies it. At this point I don't know if Ryan would take Adam to the final two, I do think Adam would take Ryan, he was simply trying to cover his bases with Sharon in case she won the Final HoH competition - can Ryan really blame him for that?
Posted by IndyMike at 5:57 PM
Sheila's ranting and raving is definitely making Adam's decision easier. She can't go five minutes without complaining to him. If he's not around, then Ryan and Sharon are forced to listen to her list of complaints about him.
There's no doubt she's leaving whenever CBS has the eviction, whether it's tonight, tomorrow, or Tuesday. But is it the right move? Sharon has the votes, and she's obviously a much better competitor than Sheila. Unless Natalie's Big Brother-addicted Creator swoops down to help Sheila, there's no possible way she'd suddenly win two out of three HOH competitions. Sharon, though, has the capability.
After listening to Sheila's tales of menstrual cramps and spotting, though, I'd also be sending her away as quickly as possible.
Oooh - just as I was about to hit "publish post", Ryan informed Adam that the diary room told him that Julie would be there tomorrow. It looks like Tuesday's show will be taped tomorrow.
They have been going in DR and taping their goodbyes...yet haven't had the POV meeting. Did they all throw in a goodbye for Adam just in case? haha.
I know some of my co-writers and others across the net are thinking that there might be an eviction tonight - and the beginning of the final HoH competition.
Although I don't know the reason for the all day lock down.
Adam is convinced there is a big special tomorrow for Big Brother (there isn't).
Adam is speculating like crazy - don't take what he says as 'fact' - this is all just him guessing because he said his goodbyes and Ryan is blogging.
Follow the Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.....
Posted by IndyMike at 3:34 PM
Poor Adam - Sheila just yelled at him again. Well, she hasn't stopped yelling at him all day. Did you know that she has protected him this entire game?
Yes, it has also been confirmed that tomorrow is eviction day. Ryan is filling out his HOH blog and taking pictures, and they are also apparently taping goodbye messages.
Says Adam, for eviction. He has just come from DR.
Yes, this is what we get to see on the feeds this very second - Sharon blowdrying her hair. Ugh.
There is some talk on other sites, though, that we may have an eviction and the beginning of the final HOH competition TODAY. Adding to that rumor is the fact they are all currently on a lengthy lockdown, and they're reported hearing the crew building a set.
In case you're wondering why we've had so few posts the last few days, just watch these clips. If you watch on repeat for 48 hours, then you have what we've been enduring.
Part One: Sharon tells Ryan not to trust Adam.
Part Two: Sheila telling Adam what a great person she is, and how hard this game is on her and only her.
Part Three: They boys compare stories.
Part Four: Sheila lectures Sharon on the greatness of Sheila.

Get your drink, your munchies, and settle in all you BBAD'ers!!!! It's going to be a drama filled awesome night!
Hey Big Brother? Where's the liquor? This is beyond boring. It's not even 9 pm there and only one awake is Sheila. Guess that's good, unless she starts talking to herself. Remember, you're only crazy if you answer. Why do I think she will.
Ryan has had enough of Sheila and wants her out. Adam appears to be more than happy to comply with his wishes.
Ryan feels like Sharon deserves to stay more for being 'the ultimate pawn.' He wants Sheila out and Sharon to stay and in theory still wants Adam in the final two with him. It will be interesting if Adam votes Sheila out - would that lose him her vote if it comes down to Adam vs. Ryan in the end?
I've watched Ryan in the past and this attitude is usually the way he acts when he is set in his ways. Even thought I named this post, "You're lucky you're still here," to be accurate I should have named it, "You're *&@#! lucky you're (*#&#& still here (*#&^#!" Ryan is not one to mince words.
So hunker down for the rest of the weekend. Even though the next eviction is on Tuesday there is going to be some down time I am guessing.

It's 5am on the east coast on a Saturday and I have class at 8am. GRR!
But I also get to watch a little early(errr...late) feeds.
Ryan and Adam are just hanging out in the kitchen. Ryan is talking about the movie - there was a scene that involved a guy not being able to get it up it seems, and Adam is telling him that "nothing can stop him from performing."
Also, Adam hates his desk job. Which is probably a good thing since he no longer has it.
They're laughing too much, I was hoping for some hurtful words to be said. Not happening.
Ryan just looked at the cam to say hi to Jen. How sweet. Ryan is saying Jen was broke when she came out here, though she does make a decent money as a bartender. Jen could go to any bar in any big city and make a lot more than she makes in Ohio.
Now they're talking about things they get when they win HOH, like when are the letters written.
They have finally decided to go to sleep. I guess I should finish getting ready for class.

For a game that's winding down, they're really throwing a lot of stuff in that has to be televised.
Sunday's episode is really a combination of the usual Sunday and Tuesday format, with the main events being the nominations AND veto competition. Yet they also must fit in the luxury competition, as it's another piece of product placement. They can't give away a prize package centered around a movie that opens next week without showing it.
Plus, the producers cannot resist showing Sheila and Adam shackled together. Yes, that can be a short segment, but it's too comical for them not to include it.
Add in the campaigning, and that is a lot of material for a sixty-minute episode.
Tuesday's episode is really Wednesday's a day early, although there's some talk that it will not be live. It will start with the veto meeting, followed by some campaigning, then move on to the eviction and the beginning of the first part of the final HOH competition. Even if it's not a live show, though, I can't see them NOT showing Natalie's entrance into the jury house. I beg, beg, beg the producers to let us see the reactions of James, Chelsia, and Matt when she walks in the house.
There's also some late-breaking news about the finale. Currently, it's scheduled for Sunday, April 27, but the networks are negotiating a Democratic debate for that evening. If that does occur, it was said on House Calls that they will move the finale to Tuesday, April 29.
No matter which day it airs, there's still two episodes of material that needs to be squeezed into the finale. Correct me if I'm wrong, but in previous seasons the final two HOH competitions were shown in one final "normal" episode before the last show. Now they must include this material before they can even get to the cast reunion and final vote.
I think the way they're cramming this all together is an indication that this season is considered a ratings and personality failure...which we've all been saying the entire season.
Like IndyMike, the real world has kept me away from the feeds most of the day. The few times I did check in (or read accounts on other sites), all I ever saw was Sheila driving Adam nuts with her whining while they were chained together. At one point late last night, she even went so far as to complain how everybody has shit on her through the entire game while she's done absolutely nothing to deserve it. Really, Sheila?
A bit of drama after the veto competition, though. After Ryan won, Adam winked at Sheila and told her there's nothing to worry about. Sharon noticed this, and informed Ryan. A few minutes ago, Ryan confronted Adam, but just as their conversation became heated Sheila walked in.
Look for this conversation to begin again later.
More details soon - but for now all I know is he won it.
No details on the competition - Adam said he did horrible.
Ryan hasn't given a clue to me yet on what he might do. Sheila told Sharon that she doesn't think he will use it, but Sharon told Ryan that she saw Adam tell Sheila she is ok (you with me?), as if Sharon and Ryan have a deal.
Who knows - maybe we can see what Ryan says to each person tonight.

Ryan and Sharon are off watching their movie so Adam and Sheila are alone.
Sheila just told Adam that her one regret is the way she ripped into him for his comment on day one (when Adam said 'retard') - she says it just struck her wrong and she jumped to conclusions about who he was as a person.
I foresee a tender moment with soft piano music on Sunday accompanied by a flashback to that incident.
However I don't think it will get Adam his job back with the company he was working for before he entered the house, not that I think he will mind.
Posted by IndyMike at 8:57 PM
Well the bots that be decided that the BB9 blog might be a fake blog so it is locked for up to 2 days while a real person comes to 'review' it.
So until there we can read and post about BB9 right here. I will be getting the other folks the permissions they need shortly.
Adam nominated Sharon and Sheila - thats about all I know for now.
With Adam and Sheila stuck together for the next 24 hours it will be hard for either to talk to Ryan. Meanwhile Ryan will be getting cozier with Sharon.

Hey - either BB9 isn't even over yet or it just ended.
Give us a little rest ok?
Come back in a while and we'll have some new content up - but for goodness sake don't expect daily updates until BB10 is a bit closer.
Traditionally Big Brother has kicked off the first Thursday or so AFTER July 4th.
If you are here early - get back over to Big Brother 9 Gossip!!
