Our Report: BB19 After party at Clifton's in LA (long post, and limited to my opinions/observations)
09/23/17 11:47 AM

Well, to begin with, my wife and I have been attending these after parties for several seasons now, which is just an event that is totally out of the norm for our real life, but seen as a nice way to end the BB season. We'll typically sit quietly and just observe, and on occasion interact with the HG's.

This year's cast were in attendance, but we did miss seeing some and found out afterwards they were there. The night started out by standing next to Matt and Raven in line at the bar for our first drink purchase. Matt actually started up a small conversation with me , and I considered mentioning the surprise that he showed up with Raven considering money was on that he would dump Raven by then, but thought that would be totally tacky on my part. I did notice he allowed Raven to pick up the tab on their drinks.

Jason was having a great time! He really does seem like a fun guy. He spent a lot of time on the dance floor interacting with the fans. Felt a little bad for his wife that could be seen standing near him in the background and looking a little ignored. Kevin was out there, as well, and seemed to be having a good time. His family was there and got the impression they're use to partying together.

Mark and Elana showed up together and appeared to be having a great time. We happened to be leaving the party at the same time, so we took the opportunity to say Hi. Met Elana's mom and surprised at how young she looks. Commented on how they could be sister's, which I'm not sure if that insulted Elana or just complimented her mom. Mark was very gracious and humble. Really seemed like a nice guy.

Ramses, Jillian and Dominique arrived together. Ramses spent some time on the dance floor and seemed like a really nice kid. It appeared like a lot of guys were hitting on him, so thinking his love life should be improving soon. Didn't see much fan interaction from Jillian and Dom, and they seemed to be hanging mostly in the VIP area.

Josh drew a big crowd, which is typical when the season winner shows up. It was definitely his night and wonder if this will all go to his head. Despite his win, I still think he was just Paul's goat.

HG's that were there but we didn't see (assume they stayed in the VIP area and didn't mingle much with the crowd): Jess and Cody. Really disappointed that we weren't able to at least say Hi. Saw a video of their arrival and glad to see they took some time signing autographs and pictures with fans. Xmas apparently arrived with Josh. Again saw a video of their arrival. I'm guessing it was Xmas that had a little gal in tow with the job of keeping them away from the "paparazzi". Seemed kind of ridiculous to me since these folks aren't really big time celebrities. In the video, it showed this little gal dragging Josh and Xmas out of their car by hand to make sure they didn't have to sign any autographs or take any photos. Josh kind of messed with that plan and did stop for a couple of pics, and you could tell Xmas was irritated with it. These "paparazzi" are really just autograph scalpers, that have a bunch of pre-printed photos to get signed. I'm sure we'll see a bunch for sale on eBay soon. This video left me with the impression that Xmas thinks she's a lot more famous than she really is. Never did see Alex, but apparently she was there.

Paul was a no show, and wondered if he was embarrassed over the loss or possibly afraid of a possible conflict/altercation with the other HG's or the fans. Not surprised to read he had a private party with a select few HG's (Maven, Xmas, and Kevin). To me, it's just indicative that he still wants to control things and only interact with people that thought he was an okay guy.

This year there seemed to be less former house guests in attendance. Amber (BB16) was there and seemed to be having a good time. Funny, we follow her Instagram, and my wife made the comment that we typically see a pic of Amber's butt almost daily. Jace (BB17) just strikes me as a cocky SOB and was hoping people still recognized him, although he spent a lot of time telling people who he was (he has short hair now). Austin (also BB17) was there but spent all of his time in the VIP area. Another BB17 player, Jackie, showed up and I did say Hi. She was very cordial. Morgan and Alex (BBOTT) spent a lot of time mingling, and after seeing them in person, I just don't get how people in the house didn't catch on that they were sisters. We were really surprised to see Erika (BB4 and All-Stars) there with her hubby(?) in tow. She looked a little out of place, so we made a point of fawning over her and asking if she stayed in touch with Jack. They had spoken last week. Seemed a little awkward when we saw her introduce herself to Jason, who obviously had no idea who she was, but Jason gave her a big hug afterwards. Rachel and Brendon were there. Nice that Rachel has hosted these parties for the last few years. Rachel's sister, Elisa (BB15), was also there and seemed to want to compete with her sister as to who could wear a more glittery outfit. We did see Jason Roy, but typically try to avoid him.

That's it. I'm sure there were others that I left off the list, but didn't see or just didn't recognize them. This did seem to be a younger crowd this year, which made us stand out even more.

Thanks for reading!

09/23/17 12:17 PM
xx * thank you NT
09/23/17 12:15 PM
xx * The gal pulling Christmas wasn't her "bodyguard". It's her gay best friend Beth who they call "crazy Beth". She's wild and crazy and Xmas was drunk NT
09/23/17 12:11 PM
xx * Beth is gay? Are X's best girlfriends gay or bi? She and Jenny are or were in love & seem to have some sort of relationship that extends beyond work.
09/23/17 12:25 PM
xx * I wondered about that as well. Beth has a LOT of pictures of Xmas on her IG. NT
09/23/17 11:26 PM
xx * Christmas is not bisexual (perfectly fine if she was though) and has never had a relationship with Jenny. I have no idea where you got that from. >
09/23/17 11:16 PM
xx * You know Xmas personally? I watched on feeds Xmas stroking Elena's hand in a VERY SEXUAL manner.That was telling & you can't convince me otherwise. NT
09/24/17 08:08 PM
xx * Maybe from her words on the feeds? We've no need to spin... she said it... not that theirs anything wrong with that... NT
09/24/17 04:48 PM
xx * I think she said on the show that she had been in relationships with guys and women NT
09/24/17 01:11 PM
xx * Xmas told a story about Beth bringing home a girl stripper from the club and they banged all week. She only saw Beth into 1 guy and he was fem. NT
09/23/17 05:02 PM
xx * I can tell you as FACT... Bisexual woman are the very best lovers. Nothing greater than to see two woman make love and then invite a man to join them.
09/27/17 01:47 PM
xx * True a body guard is not 5 feet tall and female, it was one of Christmas's friends NT
09/23/17 12:17 PM
xx * Sexist, no?... I'd sooner have Brienne of Tarth as a bodyguard than most men... NT
09/23/17 02:51 PM
xx * Brienne is not 5 feet tall. Or real. NT
09/23/17 03:01 PM
xx * There are Briennes out there... it's sexist... if they had just said 5 feet tall, maybe... they highlighted "female"... NT
09/23/17 03:07 PM
xx * You can see photos of Beth on CMas's insta. She is just a cute little blond gal. She is not muscular like CMas. NT
09/23/17 11:18 PM
xx * Great observation, but not seeing relevance to questions... NT
09/24/17 04:49 PM
xx * Matt letting Raven pick up the tab. Don't know who that says more about. NT
09/23/17 12:07 PM
xx * All it says to me is that they are sharing expenses which is how I prefer to do things in my own relationships. Is this 1950? NT
09/23/17 11:20 PM
xx * Right? But TBF to Matt, if someone's willing to pay for my drinks, have at it! NT
09/23/17 02:52 PM
xx * Don't think it says anything about either. Raven picked up the tab. Big deal. NT
09/23/17 12:19 PM
xx * yeah, what is this, 1950? NT
09/24/17 09:54 AM
xx * IKR?! And who's to say he didn't pick up the tabs other times? Random sexist, judgmental comments based on one incident? NT
09/24/17 04:50 PM
xx * uh huh NT
09/23/17 01:13 PM
xx * That made me gain respect for him honestly. NT
