S02E05 – Nominations

Estimated reading time: 13 minutes

bb2e05_0472 bb2e05_029Robert: Are you missing your family?
Karen: Oh, immensely! I mean, it’s not like we see each other that often, but we do talk almost every day. I just miss hearing their voices.
Robert: I know what you mean. I mean, my kids are all living really close to me and I spend my whole day with Mikey, my grandson, so I guess it’s even worse for me. I really miss that little guy. And I miss my wife so much. Do you miss your husband?

bb2e05_030Karen: Oh, Robbie, you haven’t been paying attention, have you? *laughs* I’m single.
Robert: Oh, really? What happened?
Karen: With which one? *laughs* I was married three times and… it’s just not for me. I prefer it like this. I can really focus on the things I love.

bb2e05_031Robert: I find it fascinating that she’s proud of that. I mean, we’re playing a game based on trust and this woman said yes for life to three different men and it means nothing to her. She talks about it like marriage is a joke. Marriage is the thing which keeps our society together, it’s the one thing I hold sacred.

bb2e05_032Producer’s voice: Hello, Charley.
Charley: Heya!
Producer’s voice: As you know, you’ve been awarded a very special power in the last HoH competition and this power can influence the game a lot if you choose to use it.
Charley: Wooo, this is so, like, exciting!

bb2e05_033Producer’s voice: Charley, I am here to tell you that you have won the Diamond Power of Veto. During the next two PoV ceremonies you will be asked if you want to use your power or not. If you decide not to use it on any of those two occasions, the power will be lost. However, you can only use it once, so be careful about that. This power grants you the ability to save yourself or someone else from being nominated, but not only that, as you will also be able to nominate someone instead of the person you decide to save. However, you can not nominate the HoH or the regular Power of Veto winner.
Charley: Oh my gosh, this is, like, phenomenal! I love, love, love it! *screams*
Producer’s voice: Oh, and Charley… You can not tell anyone about what your power holds because that will result in you losing this power. Understood?
Charley: Yes! *screams* Yaaaay, I’m so happy!

bb2e05_034Stuart: I really, really miss Lily. I had a real connection with her. Caleb’s annoying me with his awful behavior so I’m trying to stay away from him and Selena is pretty much ignoring me. I feel very alone in this house now.

bb2e05_035 bb2e05_036Dane: I never liked that movie. *laughs*
Felix: But it’s hilarious!
Dane: Not my kind of humor, I guess.
Felix: You’re insane! *laughs*

bb2e05_037Dane: How much are you lifting now?
Felix: Oh, it’s nothin’ special.
Dane: Do you have to keep in shape for your job?
Felix: Oh, definitely. When I used to do straight porn it didn’t matter as much since guys don’t watch guys in the movie, but now when I’m doing a lot more of gay porn… I’m on a very strict routine.
Dane: I still can’t believe you’re gay, oh, I’m sorry, bi, you’re just like…

bb2e05_038Felix: Any other guy? *laughs* It’s just my sexuality, it’s not who I am. It’s just a part of it.
Dane: I mean, I know, but like… Last season, there was Noah and you could just tell he was gay. He acted like you’d expect a gay person to act.
Felix: Sorry dude, but you’re wrong. A guy can be gay or bi and be much more manly than most straight guys. It’s just a stereotype and stereotypes are almost never a good thing. Nor a true one.
Dane: I guess… I didn’t mean anything bad, I’m just trying to learn though.
Felix: I get it, mate! It’s all fine! Besides, it’s not like I’m the only LGBT person in here. *laughs*

bb2e05_039Dane: What?
Felix: I mean, Stuart’s obviously gay.
Robert: What?!
Felix: Yeah, dude’s been checking me out since I told you I worked in porn. He probably even jacked off on me once or twice.*laughs*
Robert: Okay, Felix, I have nothing against you, but I just don’t listening to this kind of stuff, so I’ll leave you to it.

bb2e05_040 bb2e05_041Felix: *laughs* I knew it would make him feel uncomfortable.
Dane: What do you mean?
Felix: Guy is obviously a hardcore family man, he was in the army and… he’s basically the billboard homophobe. But at least he keeps it to himself so I can’t hold it against him. Robert’s an amazing man, sure, but I can’t say he would be seen anywhere near me if we weren’t inside this house, Dane. And that’s just life, I’m used to that.
Dane: I would have never guessed. I have nothing against that, Felix. I think it’s great for as long as people love each other. And are you sure about Stuart?
Felix: Thank you, Dane. And trust me. I’ll even prove it to you.

bb2e05_042Selena: What you’ve been up to?
Stuart: Me? Nothing.
Selena: You seem pretty distant, kiddo.
Stuart: I just… I miss Lily. Why didn’t you tell me you were voting her out?
Selena: What do you mean?
Stuart: I mean, I know you’re working with those guys. I just thought you’d still trust me enough to tell me something as big as that.

bb2e05_043Selena: Working with who?
Stuart: Selena, I’m not dumb. And I get it, it’s a lot easier if you have people backing you up, I just thought we had a connection and I just thought you’d let me know you were evicting her instead of Zach.
Selena: Stuart, it’s not… I’m sorry.

bb2e05_044Stuart: It’s okay. I’m just not feeling this anymore.
Selena: Feeling what?
Stuart: This… game. I feel like I made a mistake by coming in here. I miss my home.
Selena: Oh you can’t be thinking about leaving, Stuart?!
Stuart: I mean…

bb2e05_045Selena: Think about all the people who applied and didn’t get a chance to come in here because the producers thought you were a lot more interesting then them. Think about the money and how it can help you and your family out. We’re all going to have bad days in here, but we get through them and we don’t walk out of here. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime, Stuart. Don’t throw it away.
Stuart: I mean, I understand that, Selena, trust me. But I’ve been feeling like this since I came in. You don’t really see how long the days are until you’re disconnected from the world and people you care about. I’ve just been feeling a lot more lonely in here than I do outside and surprise, surprise, I’m not a very social person outside either.
Selena: But that is why you came in here! You wanted to come out of your bubble a bit, remember?
Stuart: Yeah…

bb2e05_046Selena: Just don’t do anything stupid, Stuart. Promise me!
Stuart: I won’t. Thanks for talking with me, Selena.
Selena: You have a friend in me. Don’t forget that. Come, they’ve opened up the luxury room for the first time. Let’s have some fun!

bb2e05_048 bb2e05_052Karen: I never… Gosh, there’s not a lot of things I haven’t done. *laughs*

bb2e05_050Karen: I’ve never slept with a girl! *laughs*
Felix: That’s not very fair for us, guys, is it?
Karen: Oh, life’s not fair! Deal with it, porn boy! *laughs*
Steph:
Come on, Stuart, drink up!

bb2e05_054 bb2e05_051Stuart: I haven’t…
Steph: Oh, I’m so sorry… You’re 23 and I just thought.
Stuart: I never slept with a girl.
Steph: I’m so sorry, Stuart, I really am. I should keep my mouth closed more often.

bb2e05_055Zach: I could comment on that last line, but I think it speaks for itself! *laughs*
All: *laugh*
Steph: Groooooss! *laughs*

bb2e05_056Charley: I never lied on my job application!
Karen: Oh, bullsh*t! *laughs*
Felix: I did that! *laughs*

bb2e05_057Dane: We really needed a night like this, didn’t we? *laughs*

bb2e05_058 bb2e05_059Stuart: What?
Felix: *whispers* Hey cutie!
Stuart: *whispers* Felix, what are you doing?

bb2e05_060Felix: Come on, I know you want to…

bb2e05_061Stuart: Felix…
Felix: I’ve seen the way you look at me. *whispers* I’m horny.
Stuart: But… You’ve got a boyfriend.
Felix: No, it’s fine. He doesn’t mind. We’re in an open relationship.
Stuart: But, I’m not… gay.
Felix: Oh, come on. Don’t pull that sh*t on me. *laughs*

bb2e05_063 bb2e05_062Stuart: No!

bb2e05_064Stuart: I… I want to leave. *cries*
Producer’s voice: Stuart, what makes you say that? If you want, you can talk with our psychologist.
Stuart: No, it’s fine. I just… I’ve been feeling like this for a while now and tonight something happened which I really didn’t want to happen, I mean, my parents… I just want to leave. Please.
Producer’s voice: Stuart, we do advise you to talk with our psychologist before making your decision. Or if you’d like, you can talk with another HouseGuest about this?

bb2e05_065Stuart: I just want out. Please, please… *cries*

bb2e05_066 bb2e05_067Selena: Where is Stuart?
Felix: I just saw him half an hour ago in the bathroom.
Selena: I can’t find him anywhere… I hope he didn’t walk.
Felix: What? Why would he do that?
Selena: He wasn’t feeling this experience last time we talked. I’m so worried.

bb2e05_068Felix: Oh, this can’t be happening…

bb2e05_069 Selena: Guys, gather around.
Dane: What’s going on?
Felix: I’ll tell you later.

bb2e05_070Selena: I was just in the Diary Room and they’ve told me that Stuart has decided to leave the Big Brother game. They didn’t tell me any reasons why. That’s it.
All: What?!
Robert: That’s awful. Just think about how many people would have killed for an opportunity like this and he just threw it away. I can’t respect that.

bb2e05_071Selena: I’m sorry, Robert, but he was in a very bad place. He felt very alone and no one really talked with him besides me and Caleb. He confided in me and I thought I gave him enough reasons to stay but… I guess not… *sobs*
Karen: Oh, sweetie, it’s not your fault. This just wasn’t for him and we should respect that. He’s better off outside.

bb2e05_072 bb2e05_073Selena: I’m just sad because he really tried opening up in here and…
Charley: This is not a show for asocial people.
Karen: Charley, don’t. Just don’t.

bb2e05_074Selena: *sobs* The worst thing is the fact that I’m supposed to nominate tomorrow. How can I do that? I feel so awful… I just feel like I could have stopped him if I didn’t spend so much time with my alliance members.

bb2e05_075Felix: Dude didn’t f*cking die. I don’t get all of the crying. Selena is taking this way too hard and I’m worried she might make a rash decision because of that. I’m just glad no one knows that I might have something to do with Stuart leaving too. I honestly thought he was into me, though, I couldn’t have known that he was such a closet case. I mean, he did leave because of that, right? We were drinking and having fun and I got horny so I just thought I’d ask him… It didn’t go too well. Damn, I even thought I’d tell Dane what happened but now… I’m not so sure it’s a good idea. I’ll just keep it to myself.

bb2e05_076Selena: Welcome to the Nominations Ceremony. Every week the Head of Household has to nominate two HouseGuests for eviction and for the first four weeks he or she also has to suggest one other HouseGuest as a twin. This was incredibly tough for me guys, especially now that Stuart is gone out of the blue, and I still don’t know enough about all of you to really have good enough reasons to do this but… Let’s start things off with my twin suggestion…

bb2e05_077Selena: It’s Steph. Steph, please, take a sit in the middle of the Nomination Sofa.

bb2e05_078Selena: And now for the Nominations part. I have decided to nominate…

bb2e05_079Selena: Charley and Caleb. I’m sorry guys, but I’ve spent the least of my time in here with you and Caleb, you’ve won the Mac ‘n’ Cheese pass so this won’t be as hard for you, while Charley, you’ve won the secret power and honestly, that scares me. This game is hard enough without people with secret powers. This Nominations Ceremony is adjourned.

bb2e05_080 bb2e05_081Steph: She’s smart. I mean, I get it. She didn’t want to nominate me but I scare her, so she just put me up as a twin and that way, in case I am the twin, I’d be leaving on Friday. But, surprise… I’m not the twin, Selena! You’ll just have to nominate me properly next time!

bb2e05_082Caleb: To be honest, this house without that young lad keeping me company is not such a wonderful place. Oh, Stuart, I hope you’re having a great time outside, my dear friend!

bb2e05_083Charley: Girls in this house are so fake. Karen is the only real woman in here! Good thing I have the Diamond Power of Veto! I’m so going to screw up your plans, Selena!

  • Yannik Baumann

    I kinda like that Selena thinks that Steph is the twin, this was she is safe automaticly 😀

    Its so so sad that Stuart just left, he was one of my favourite housemates 🙁

    Now its final, I hate Felix, especially for the thing he did to Stuart, Asshole 🙁

    Great episode as always <3

    • Yannik Baumann

      I’m also pretty sure that Charley will save herself, and I hope she nominates Felix, I hate him 🙁

    • Stephanie is definitely still a big target to the “gym team”. And Selena seems to be targeting other strong females (Lily, Steph). But Selena is also careful and she’s going against the HouseGuests who the house wants out as a whole (Charley, Caleb) instead of nominating Steph since she doesn’t have a good enough reason to put Steph up.
      That’s why she just put her up as the twin suggestion, just in case she might be the twin.

      Stuart will be brought back this Friday for an interview since he did leave suddenly and without saying goodbye.

      Felix doesn’t seem to be liked by the viewers at all. :O

      Thank you, Yannik! <3 Nominations this week can change completely since there will be one regular veto and Charley's diamond veto in play. So might end up with two replacements! :O Thanks so much for the comments, once again! I really love them! 😀

  • spencer tenesen

    Okay now that was a very bold move of Felix. I just can’t believe it! It’s final he’s blacklisted!

    I just hope Charley will do something right for the first time and nominate Felix. As for Caleb I just want him to lose. He’s just not playing the game, or simply not taking it seriously enough.

    Selena is in a really tough place, HoH may have the power but with power comes responsibility and in case of Big Brother….bloodshed…I just hope that she can see what Felix did and hopefully convince Charley to nominate him, and see through his lies and maybe put an end to that snake, and kick him out of the alliance. Remember Forrest? I just hope the same thing happens to Felix!

    Karen is really growing in my opinion and Charley is getting smaller and smaller by the second! I mean even if she thinks that the game wasn’t good for shy people she can’t just bark it out at a time like this! And she thinks that she’s smart!? Man I’d say she smartly stupid!

    *takes a deep breath* but this is a game after all and I can’t get worked up this early. I’m just so sad for Stuart….wasn’t Lily enough?

    • Felix is definitely a big threat in this game, but will the other HouseGuests see through him? :/
      This week two Vetos could potentially be used which means that we might get two replacement nominees (one chosen by Selena as HoH and one by Charley).

      Caleb is one of the strangest HouseGuests we’ve had so far, that’s for sure! xD I find it funny when I write his lines.

      Hahahahaha, you want Felix backdoored just like Forrest was? Though, to be fair, Felix seems to have a lot of people still on his side, while Forrest was the biggest target from the beginning of the game… :/ Who knows if and when Felix will get voted off! :O

      Charley has no filter. She just speaks her mind without thinking and in a game like this it could be such a bad thing. Gosh, there’s a lot more of disliked people this season than there was last one. Hopefully the liked ones (like Lily and Stuart) won’t continue to leave… 😛

      I’m sorry if this sounds a bit bad, but I’m really happy to see you get worked up since that means you care about these HouseGuests and that for me (as a writer) is a great thing! ☺ Thank you so, so, so much for leaving amazing feedback for me after every episode! It definitely helps a lot, Spencer! 😉

  • Yannik Baumann

    I have an Idea, could me make a list of the most hated HouseGuests? I am pretty sure Charley, Caleb and FElix will be far ahead :#

    • Hahahahah, that’s not a bad idea! I might do that haha! 😀

  • Sam James

    Aw. I’m sad Stuart’s left as he had potential. Felix really is a despicable human being. I hope he leaves soon. It’ll be really off-putting if he survives for a lot of the season. But with that being said, he’s an interesting character.

    I know I created Robert but he’s a bit preachy and annoying (which I expected!) but I’d like to see him win a challenge or get more into the game, as I pictured him as really competitive.

    Charley’s growing on me as she’s a bit of an idiot but she’s at least being funny with it. I really like her power, it brings a lot to the game.

    As for Caleb, he needs to GTFO.

    Can’t wait for more! 😀

    • Stuart could have been a great strategic player but he lacked in the social department and that is probably a much bigger factor of the game. :/ I always planned for him to walk but I made him stay a bit longer since he was very interesting to write for. He was the only HouseGuest whose fate I ended up deciding. :/
      Robert will come into play soon, these past few episodes it was more about Lily and Stuart because they were leaving so I thought I’d give them more screen time. XD
      Charley is a love-hate character definitely!
      Aww, why you no like Caleb, Sam?:P

      • Sam James

        Because he’s a bloody weirdo and a pointless player. 😛

  • Yannik Baumann

    One little thing for next time, I have the feeling that Steph is only talking to Zach, I would like to see her talking to the others, too. I think its a disadvantage because I made her a outgoing sim 🙂

    • They were all playing the game of “I never” this episode but she’ll definitely do it. She just feels like the gym crew is attacking Zach and her so she’s kind of ignoring them for now. ?

  • Adam Scholze

    Felix as much as I oppose, I think he’s going to survive for longer than one would hope, OR Selena is going to realize that Felix MAY have hand in Stuart’s walk but otherwise I think he’s gonna stick around for a bit.

    In other comments you keep mentioning her having to nominate two more people but I can’t see Caleb winning a PoV competition or someone saving him whatever that competition may be.

    I liked this episode though, I was NOT expecting Stuart to walk (In fact he was one of my secret predictions to win) however, I also glad to see Selena forced to get blood on her hands already, INCLUDING the foreseeing Diamond PoV and how she’s not able to duck out of it like Erica last season.

    Stephanie is on the bottom of the social chain with Zach because the Gym crew picks them two as the highest physical traits so their going to keep getting nominated but not always evicted because the higher mental threat is discovered so It’s not just Zach getting completely screwed over it’s also Steph getting silently Screwed too

    • It’s still not completely clear how much Felix influenced Stuart’s walk (and to be fair, he didn’t know how Stuart was feeling game-wise, but the way he pushed himself onto him was way out of order). A lot of it comes down to Charley and Selena this week. 😀
      That is a possibility, but yeah, only way the other Veto is going to be used is if Caleb wins it. ??
      Stuart was supposed to leave even earlier (I wanted to have a HG walk this season as it was an uncommon thing, but not impossible to happen) but I loved writing for him as he was an insecure but a very smart player. So I kept him a bit longer. He was the only player whose faith I decided even before the show. Others were placed in the random BB simulator, just as last season. 😉
      You are absolutely correct about the last part. We’re going to see a bit more of scheming soon as these past few episodes weren’t really clear on peoples’ strategies.
      Loved your comment, Adam! I really appreciate your thoughts! ?

  • Josiah Stuart

    Okay, Felix is officially on my ‘Do Not Win’ list. Also, Stuart is the first person to walk from the game. I am starting to think that Steph is becoming silently screwed. I am hoping that Steph makes a big move to get someone from the other side out if she wins PoV. But I know that Charley will use the Diamond PoV on herself. I hope that Felix will get backdoored this week or expelled next week. Anyway, very good episode Andrija.

    • Thanks so much for the comment, Josiah! 😀 Yes, Stuart is the first one! And hopefully the last! 😛 It’s only week two so a LOT can still happen. 😉

      Do you think that Felix could become violent enough to be expelled? :O :O

      • Josiah Stuart

        Andrija, in BBUK Season 11, one of the HGs, Chima (pronounced She-ma), was removed for not wearing her microphone, breaking her microphones, and obstructing a camera. In one of the Israeli seasons, some houseguests have been removed due to inappropriate and or offensive comments. So no, I do not think that Felix will get violent enough to get expelled.

        • Yeah, I remember her. I watched and rewatched all the BBUS seasons (except S1) many times. It’s one of my favorite shows! 😀 I’ve never seen any Israeli seasons though.

  • Adrian

    I discovered this sims page and i’m sooo impressed!!! I <3 soo much, the series is really good!!! congratulations!!! Regards from Spain!
