We will give James Maslow a little bit of credit in the Celebrity Big Brother house right now — he is fighting to keep himself alive in the game! The first eviction of the season is taking place tomorrow night, and he obviously wants to be there and has a plan in order to do so.
What’s the issue? For starters, he isn’t telling everyone said plan for some reason, and is doing that thing where he thinks that being hush-hush and secretive will actually get more people on his side. This just in to James: That’s not going to happen. People like being aware of the plan. Otherwise, they think that they are still on the outside looking in on something. James has made his pitch to Mark McGrath and Ross Mathews in hopes of sticking around, and Ross told him that he would consider it. Yet, in true big brother fashion, it looks as though he is not even bothering with it. Provided that everyone stays exactly the way that it is now for the rest of the game, it feels almost like a sure thing that we are going to be seeing James leave the game tomorrow.
It hurts James that he is up on the block opposite Chuck Liddell, a guy who really doesn’t seem to be doing much of anything. James is reminding everyone that he has some strategic game and fight, whereas Chuck isn’t in that same exact position. He can kind of kick and relax.
The men are in big trouble, especially since there seems to be a plan for some of the remaining women to try and band together, at least for now, to take out some more of the guys. Other than Ross, we don’t think that there is a strategic mastermind in that group. They need to win a competition and soon, but unfortunately you’ve got people over there like Mark McGrath, Metta World Peace, and Chuck who don’t exactly know much about the Big Brother game.
