Big Brother 17: Daily Recaps

For years, I've offered a daily recap of what's happened inside the Big Brother house. And for those special occasions, when something explosive or unique happens, an update dedicated just to that event.
Unfortunately, my recaps and updates will be limited this year.
Most days, I'm unable to get out of bed due to fatigue and weakness. Some days, I'm too weak to even hold my iPad - just the thought of it is exhausting. I live in a small town in Tennessee and the local doctors have been unable to confirm a diagnosis. They think it's this; they think it's that. They try this; they try that. I love my life too much to continue waiting for them to figure it out, so I'm heading to the big city next week. I have an appointment with an incredible doctor whose credentials include serving a former President. I have hope he can figure this out and I can get back to living my life (and sharing my love of Big Brother with you). 
Judd and I have put our weekly web show on hold as well. He has known about my illness for months and has been a great "little brother", always checking on me with patience, love and understanding. (Now you know why we didn't do the web show for Canada). I have my fingers crossed we can do at least a few shows this season. He will be doing some live Periscope chats. Watch  him talk about the season and the houseguests on Periscope and Twitter (@JuddNation). 
In the meantime, you can follow my Twitter or Facebook account to see my updates in 140 characters or less. That's about all I've got in me to give right now.
Thanks so much for your understanding and years of friendship. I promise you, I WILL be back!
xo, Dani

Big Brother 17 Spoiler: A Sneak Peek at the first HoH Competition

 Big Brother 17 Spoiler . Courtesy of The Talk
Julie Chen gave us a sneak peek of the first HoH competition of the Big Brother 17 season today.
Standing in for the houseguests were daytime television's James O'Halloran from the Price as Right; Lawrence Saint-Victor and Darin Brooks from The Bold and The Beautiful.
The competition had them standing on a non-moving plank. I suspect the actual competition will have a moving plank.
The Houseguests will need to catch thrown tomatoes while being sprayed with tomato sauce.
Below is a video of the practice competition.

Big Brother 17: A Weekly Twist

Big Brother 17 Twist 
Shoot Me.
Sometimes, I think Big Brother hates me. Sometimes, I think it couldn't get worse. Sometimes I am right. Sometimes I am wrong.

Welcome to the "BB Takeover" season, where a special guest will surprise and deliver a new twist each week.

I'm okay with the special guest part. Maybe even a wee bit excited about it. I still remember Sheryl Crow giving a backyard concert during Big Brother 3. But the twist part - it gets my panties in a twist.

As an old school, Arnold Shapiro viewer, I grumble, roll my eyes and curse this twist and every other twist.  It gives me pause, as I wonder how the twist will be used to manipulate the house happenings.

I don't need a twist to entertain me. I sure as hell don't need a ratings gimmick, guised as a social issue, to get my attention. What I need is a group of strangers, locked in a house, competing for half a million dollars. That's it. A simple, social experiment.

Below is the CBS Press Release regarding this Summer's twist.

Big Brother 17 Houseguest: Meg Maley

Meg is bubbly. Like bubbling over, bubbly. I may want to put a stick in my eardrums bubbly. That's about all I remember from her interview. Interpret that how you wish.
