Big Brother 12
Wednesday, September 15, 2010 -- Evening
Big Brother FinaleNothing has been going on with Big Brother, and the live feeds have been the deadest of any season ever. The deadliest, dull season had the most dull of them all making it to the final three. At least tonight it is over. I really hate to say this because I love Big Brother, but I've been so ready to put a fork in this season.
The show this evening started with a recap of the season. Once that was over, the show started an analysis of the final three. Enzo was unhappy because he didn't stand a shot at making the final two. As Enzo said, he's the one who did all the planning, and he was going to get knocked out. Hayden and Lane talked about taking each other to the final two. However, Hayden doesn't know if Lane will take him. Hayden tries to discredit all his past actions. Lane does start to wonder if he should take Hayden. I think Lane should take Enzo. Meanwhile Enzo keeps on whining about how he made the Brigade, and that means that he should win the game. Hayden said that if Enzo goes to the final two, he will win because he played the best social game, even though he didn't do well in competitions. Everyone in the jury house supposedly likes Enzo. Enzo tries to convince Lane that taking Hayden to the final two would result in a win for Hayden. Enzo says that Hayden would beat either of them. Lane said that his heart is in favor of Hayden while his brain says that Enzo might be the best bet.
In the jury house, Ragan doesn't want to see Britney, but Matt thinks it will be here. Brendon would rather have seen Enzo since he didn't win. As soon as Britney comes in, she outs the Brigade. Rachel didn't think the "boys" were smart enough to form an alliance, let alone know what the word means. Ragan gets very upset because Matt didn't tell him anything. Ragan says that it sucks the the three people in the final three were not targets. Matt wasn't going to spill the beans, but Matt said that he was the brains behind the alliance. Everyone really needs to get over the whole horror of Matt lying about his wife being sick. Britney thinks Matt is conniving and will do anything for money. Britney then said that she wanted to come to the jury house and find out that Rachel was pregnant.
The jury starts to talk about the remaining three. Rachel thinks the Brigade was luck. Britney and Ragan say that the undercover alliance making it to the final three was a good strategy. Briteny said that everyone liked Enzo, that's why people didn't get rid of him. They just commented that he was just floating through the entire game. Matt and Ragan say that Hayden was most competitive and won. Matt even says that Hayden played the game because he was social. Rachel says that no one on the jury would be pissed at Lane. Ragan said that being a nice guy doesn't get someone a million dollars. Ragan said just not talking bad about people doesn't earn Lane money. Rachel said that it says a lot to her that Lane had that power over a strong player, like Britney.
Finally time for the final HOH. It's the competition where the competitors have to guess how the juror completed the statement. Rachel's favorite moment in the house was falling in love with Brendon. Both got it right. Kathy said the most shocking moment in the house was when Rachel returned for 24 hours. Both got it right. Matt said his fatal error in the house was throwing his last HOH. Both got it again! Brendon said the moment he doesn't want his family to see is when he he went off on Britney and Ragan. Both again got it right. Ragan said the one who needed a reality check was Brendon because he was willing to give his waitress a half million dollar tip. Both got it wrong. Britney said the funniest moment in the house was Rachel and Ragan's fight. Both got it wrong, so it went to a tie breaker question. The answer is a number. The question was how many times did they get slammed into the walls in the final endurance competition that Hayden won. Answer was 250. Hayden guessed 91 and Lane 55. So Hayden is the final HOH. Who will Hayden take to the final two?
Enzo tells Hayden that whatever he has to do, he does. Lane said that there are no hard feelings because Hayden has to do what he has to do. Hayden tells them that he loves both and has been loyal to both and that they will be friends for ever. Hayden evicts Enzo and said that he thinks Enzo would have been guaranteed something that the BB music drowned out. Hayden asks Lane if Lane would have evicted him. Lane said no way. Enzo said that he didn't think Hayden would take him because Enzo thought he had a good social game. Enzo said it stings though because he didn't get any money out of it, but he couldn't hold it against Hayden. Enzo said that he may not have done well in competitions because he may have felt that he really wasn't under pressure. Lane tells Enzo that he might have taken him. Hayden said that he had to evict Enzo because Enzo might win. Enzo then went on to say that he was going to dirty dance with everyone there and have huge amounts of fun at the wrap party.
The jury comes out. Britney is asked who she wants to see, and she said anyone but Lane. Matt thinks that it's not Enzo, but that he really doesn't care because the other three are interchangeable. Enzo comes out then (I guess the jury didn't know what happened in the HOH competition.) It's time to ask questions. They had to come up with six questions, and agree on them. Enzo gets to ask a question afterwards. Rachel asks Lane (as she giggles inanely) why they should vote for Lane because he didn't win many competitions. Lane admits that he didn't do well in competitions at the end. Brendon asks Hayden which two non-Brigade members he would like to see in the final two. Hayden said Brendon and Britney. Matt asks Lane if he would take a Brigade member or Britney. Lane said that he would take whoever benefited him. Lane tries not to answer, and then says that he is 100% loyal to the Brigade. Matt says "not 100%!" Kathy asked about their social game. Hayden said that he thinks he was equal to Lane in the social game, but Hayden said that the competitions separated him. Britney asked about Lane's three most significant contribution to the Brigade. Lane says making them laugh and watching after them. Ragan asks Hayden if he regrets anything he may have said behind the back of a particular jury member. Hayden said he couldn't think of anything, but everyone has said things in the heat of the moment, but Hayden couldn't think of anything off the top of his head that he regretted. Hayden said that he didn't bash anyone too bad. Enzo asks Lane if he was really going to take Enzo to the final two. Lane said that he didn't think he could win against Enzo or Hayden, so he would really have had to think about it. All in all, the questions weren't that bad, and everything seemed to go swimmingly. This season wasn't definitely not like past years where the remaining two were really put on the spot.
Hayden tells the jury that the winner should be the person who played the best. Hayden reminds them that he won three HOH competitions in a row. Hayden won competitions at the end when there was no-one left to compete against. Lane is really funny, and says that he did compete and won two HOH. He is counting the final three HOH, just as Hayden was doing, although Hayden tried to get him on that. Rachel votes and says that he thinks both played well. Kathy votes and says that it's very, very hard. Matt said that he's sorry that the Brigade didn't make the final four, but he's voting for the person who had the biggest role in stabbing him in the back. Brendon tells them they played a good social game, and he was voting for the one with the best social game. Ragan said that they are both spectacular human beings, and that one was here to win the million dollars, and one was there to give it away. Britney said that she loves them both and says "may the best man win." Enzo said it's between who needs a hair cut and who needs a shave. Everyone laughs. The voting is complete.
Now they bring the first four evicted house guests back: Annie, Monet, Andrew, and Kristen. Rachel comments on Monet saying she was skanky, saying that she isn't skanky. Britney and Ragan shared a look over that one. Monet doesn't back down from what she said. We then get to see the secret shomance between Kristen and Hayden. Andrew is vindicated. Kristen admits that her boyfriend dumped her after the relationship. Kristen said that she is open to anything, and is open to anything Hayden wants. Hayden said that he would take Kristen to get pizza. Andrew said that he was shocked by Enzo and the Brigade and Rachel's hair extension. Andrew broke the news to the other Brigade members about Matt's lie. Gosh, just let it rest! Everyone keeps on thinking that Matt is the saboteur because he's small and has tattoos. Hayden said that Matt played him like a fiddle. Lane said you should make up a lie about your dog not about your wife. Matt said that the lie was for sympathy votes, and that he started the lie before he got to know and like people.
Annie said that the Brigade manipulated every vote, and if the girls had stuck together with Ragan, they would have had the numbers. After the votes were locked in, Julie showed Britney that the tape with Lane saying he wanted to take Britney to the final two. Britney said that she feels great because she did think that Lane would take her to the final two. Enzo said that he knew he had to win the POV. Lane admits that he couldn't tell the jury the truth because he was trying to save himself. Julie asks Brendon and Rachel about the showmance. Brendon said that he is going to try to get Rachel to come to LA and go to UCLA. Rachel said that she loves Vegas, but loves Brendon more. Britney mouths that she is disgusted. Britney and Ragan exchange looks. Ragan said that he thinks Rachel would make a beautiful bride. Julie finally reveals the identity of the second saboteur. Julie said that America voted for the saboteur, and that person made $20,000. Everyone seems to think it's Kathy or Matt. Matt says "me" because he's jumping on the bandwagon. Then we find out that it's Ragan.
Finally! Time for the winner. Rachel voted for Lane, Kathy voted for Hayden, Matt voted for Hayden, Brendon voted for Lane, Ragan voted for Hayden, Britney voted for Lane (everyone oohed over that one). Enzo cast the deciding vote for Hayden. If Lane had just said that he would take Enzo, he might have gotten Enzo's vote and won.
America's favorite house guest was Britney. She gets $25,000. That will be good because her fiancee's house caught on fire a few days ago. As Britney celebrates, Rachel looks like someone stole her lunch money. I will be so glad to see the last of Rachel.

Catchup!I have been busy with my regular full-time job and a new part-time job as adjunct faculty teaching technical writing to engineers. Unfortunately, my class started a week ago, and it's held on Thursday evenings, so I've been missing the Big Brother episode that night. So today is catchup day! Hayden won the first round of the HOH competition: the endurance competition. It seems that he and Lane hung on to the swinging devices for two and a half hours. Enzo didn't think that he needed to compete, so he dropped out after 19 minutes to go and eat food. I really hate Enzo because when he was a have not, he ate and wasn't penalized. He's sucked in competitions. It's like he doesn't care. When it came down to him and Lane in the second HOH competition, a face-morphing competition (you knew it would be coming), Lane won because he was slightly faster than Enzo. The threesome have made a pact that the winner of the final HOH would pick the other winner of the HOH competition round. So if Hayden wins, he will take Lane, and if Lane wins, he would be smart to break the pact and take Enzo. We shall see tomorrow night.
Wednesday, September 8, 2010 -- Evening
Bah, Big BrotherThe live feeders are angry at the BB producers. Tonight's "live" show was actually taped yesterday, and the feeds have been down since then. Britney was sent home after Hayden won the POV. It also means that the final endurance competition that we used to get to see on the live feeds was performed off live feed last night. We just don't know who won yet.
The show this evening started with a rehash of the post nomination talk. Lane said that he wants Britney, him, and Hayden in the final three. He wanted Britney to win the POV. Meanwhile, Lane knows that he can't trust Enzo and Hayden because they got rid of Matt in the past. Enzo says that he and Hayden have suspicions of Lane, but Enzo keeps on saying that it's the Brigade to the end.
The POV competition was to pair up clues with the right houseguest's picture. There were two houseguests on each card, and there was only one solution. Hayden didn't think Lane or Enzo would be good at the competition, like they were good at any competition. He did think Britney would be good. Lane was confused, per usual. Hayden's strategy was to find the card, or poster, that only had one possible answer. Britney seemed to have the same strategy. Enzo just wanted to put in cards and see what happened. Meanwhile, Lane had nothing done. Lane claimed that his brain was throwing the game. Instead of putting the posters in the slots, Britney was laying them out on the ground. Hayden quickly got all the answers. Britney thought she might stay in the house because she's tight with Lane and Hayden. She was so clueless about the Brigade. Lane sees that he now has to make Hayden and Enzo think that he always wanted Britney out.
We get to see the Brigade reveal. Lane didn't want Enzo to tell Britney because Britney was his only vote. Hayden and Enzo think that it's time to come out, and Hayden thinks Britney should know why she is being voted out. Lane didn't want to tell Britney, because he thinks that she will be pissed at him for not telling her. With Britney, Lane, and Enzo in the HOH, Enzo and Lane start talking about group efforts. Enzo says that he was in an alliance with Matty, and turned on him. Enzo then says there were two other people in the alliance. Enzo said that it was Lane, Hayden, Enzo, and Matty from day two. Britney is just staring at them, and gnawing on her fingers. Enzo thinks that he's great for coming up with the Brigade. Enzo tells Hayden that he told Britney about the Brigade. Enzo and Hayden just laugh and mock, but Lane asked if she was pissed because he would be. Hayden tells Britney then that he's not going to use the veto, and she looks very close to tears. Lane does not look happy, and when Britney starts to cry, Hayden starts to feel bad because he didn't want her to cry. Britney said that it was like going all that way for no reason. Enzo tries to tell her that she's an awesome player and made it to the final four. Britney then cries in the DR about being played and looking stupid. Yes, she was stupid. The majority of houseguests in this season were just plain dumb. Britney tells the DR that she doesn't want to talk to any of them, and it would make her sick to have to vote for one of them. Lane leaves the HOH room to go and talk to Britney. He can't tell her that he wanted to take her to the final two. Britney keeps on saying that it's just a game, and that Lane was playing her. I think that in a way, Britney likes Lane. Lane tells Britney that he has a lot of feelings for her and that he doesn't want anything to change because of this.
Veto ceremony. We know that Hayden doesn't use the power of veto. Lane calls Hayden the nicest guy ever. Lane also calls Enzo the funniest guy who saved the house from boredom. Yeah, right! It was extremely boring. Britney tells Hayden that they are friends forever. She tells Enzo that he was the funniest. She also called Lane her best friend in the house. Funny line when Britney said that if she couldn't be a member of the Brigade, she was a casualty and an alternate member of the Brigade. Enzo then says that he is very loyal, and Britney is sent packing. Britney said that she loved the three of them, but didn't love them when they told her about the Brigade. She felt angry and betrayed. Britney said that she didn't want to vote for any of them, but she is over it now. Britney thought it was just three guys who were friends, and she thought she was close with them too, and working with them. Britney said that she did forgive him. In the final messages for Britney, Hayden felt like he betrayed Britney and let her down, and he didn't want to. Enzo tells her that it was hard to evict her. Lane said that he is going to miss everything about her, and it's going to be a big, big empty house. Lane tells her that he wanted her to be in the finale with him, and that he's sorry. When Julie tells Britney that she is headed to the jury house, Britney makes this hilarious pukey face.
So who is my favorite houseguest? I can vote and that person would win $25,000. Unfortunately, I don't have a favorite in this house. I guess I'll vote for Britney.
The endurance HOH has the three houseguests hanging from a rope, and being slammed into walls. How long do you think these guys will hold on? I'll bet they only hang on for a few minutes. When all three are in an alliance, there's really no great reason to win. Or is there? The winner of this HOH will not compete in the next competition. He and the winner of that will compete in the last HOH competition, and pick the person who goes to the final two.

Big Brother Winding Down, Thank GoodnessThe Big Brother show this evening started with the HOH competition. I have to admit that I am so bored with the houseguests this season that I almost passed on watching the show. Britney said that the guys were friends and that she is alone in the house. But Britney was stupid. She's the one who put Matt up, and she'e the one who voted out Ragan. Britney didn't stand a chance against the three guys. I am so sick of the Brigade. They outed themselves with Britney on the live feeds, which I think was a stupid move. But in reality, I guess it really doesn't matter because there's nothing that can be done since no none Brigade members will make it to the final two. I really can't stand Hayden or Enzo because they are so full of themselves, and so fricking boring. But I would imagine they will be the final two.
Britney really sucked at the HOH game and was breaking ornaments left and right. Boy, watching the show, I wanted to puke. I can't stand his hair in the eyes. I guess he thinks he looks sexy instead of stupid. As we already know from the live feeds, Hayden won the HOH. It's all about the veto, because the veto holder pretty much evicts the person. Enzo is so full of himself in the show about he founded the Brigade and how wonderful the Brigade is. Lane thinks that he would have a better shot beating Britney instead of Hayden. Hayden doesn't want to show loyalty to one of the Brigade members over the other. Britney cries and whines and moans about being the outsider. What is it with the person who is leaving becoming such a whiny, blubbering loser?
HOH room reveal with pictures of Hayden as a kid and tons of junk food. Lane mocks the fufu hair shampoo that Hayden has in his basket.
More video of the BBQ grill attacking the houseguests. This happens every season. The houseguests got the really small table that appears when they have the final four.
Time for the luxurry competition. The houseguests have to hide a coin in the house, and when that houseguest's coin is found, he/she is out of the competition. Last one standing wins $10,000. Enzo hids his in the wall decoration. Hayden hides his in an unopened box and thinks he is a genius. Lane hides his under the recycle bin. Britney hides hers in the trash. Hayden dumps out the trash, but doesn't find Britney's coin. Hayden breaks something, and he is on probation because he is always breaking stuff. Enzo finds Hayden's coin. Enzo and Lane had the strategy was to look where their own coin is and say nothing is there. They just trash the house, and really don't seem to be making a good effort. On the live feeds, it took forever because these guys are stupid. Britney finally finds Enzo's coin. We aren't seeing on the show that BB producers kept on giving them hints on where to look. Britney tells Lane that she needs a consolation prize since she is probably going home. Britney keeps on checking the recycle bin, and finally lifts the can to find Lane's coin.
Britney even commented how everyone just sleeps all day. Boy, don't we all know this. She says how boring they all are. Yes, we know that they are boring. Even attempts to liven things up fall flat. Britney stagged a pillow fight. She was fighting with Hayden and Enzo, and that ended quickly. Britney said that she wants to go home to see her family and see if she is still engaged. Lane says that Britney's boyfriend, Nick, is a girly guy, and that she should have a manly guy like him. Lane said that a real man won't give you flowers, they will take you to the bar and give you a steak and a couple of girly drinks.
Hayden and Enzo say it wasn't smart of Lane to not put Britney up. Hayden and Enzo talk about sending Lane home and keeping Britney. Hayden and Enzo don't seem to trust Lane much. Hayden tells Enzo that they could easily beat Britney in the two upcoming HOH competitions. Now, let's see if they actually go through with it. Although I think that was just talk encouraged by BB producers.
Hayden claims that he is ultimately loyal to the Brigade, but he is hedging his bets by being nice to Britney in case she wins the POV. Nominations, and Hayden puts up Lane and Britney.

Best of the BoringI have been extremely bored with this season of Big Brother. In fact, it was so bad that I didn't rush off to see the Thursday's eviction episode on CBS. I finally decided to check it out, and it was as uber boring as ever. The only entertaining parts were the bits in the jury house. Rachel could have stabbed Brendon with her eyes when he came into the house. She was really pissed that he didn't win the $500,000 because she tried so hard to win. Huh? What does that have to do with anything? Obviously the BB producers found the action in the house to be boring because they devoted at least a third of the show to the jury house. My favorite part was when Matt, for some silly reason, decided to tell them all that he had lied about his wife having an illness. This got Kathy and Rachel upset. Kathy claims that she has cancer, although I find that hard to believe because she wouldn't have been allowed on the show by her doctors. Maybe she had something at one point that is now in remission, but who really knows. They really started to give Matt a hard time telling him he had to leave the room, and he said that he wasn't leaving any room. Go Matt! It really makes me sad that he didn't go all the way to win because it would have been hilarious if he told them all afterwards that the illness was just game play. I mean really, it's not like he said that his wife was dying. They all need to get a life and realize that this is supposed to be a game, not let's make life long friends. Ragan was tossed, and the HOH competition started, which we now know that Hayden won. From watching the live feeds, we know that he nominated Lane and Britney. Things have been quit in the house, except for a luxury competition to win $10,000. That was going nowhere fast until the producers started to give the houseguests hints on what to do. Britnwy won. I would have to say that this is the first time in BB history that I really have no more interest in the show or in who wins. I would hope that it would be Britney, but it will probably be one of the stupid Brigade.
Thursday, September 2, 2010 -- Evening
More of the Boring UsualI missed Big Brother on TV this evening because a Pittsburgh Steeler football game was on CBS here in the Pittsburgh area. I found out from the feeds though that Ragan was evicted. That wasn't a bold movie on anyone's part. They should have gotten rid of Hayden. But no, but no. And it seems that Hayden won HOH so he will probably be in the final two. I am just too bored for words.
Wednesday, September 1, 2010 -- Evening
Boring BrotherThe BB show started this evening with the recap of the nominations. Enzo doesn't understand what Lane has going on with Britney. Ragan is not surprised that he was nominated because he's completely by himself. Meanwhile Hayden was quite happy to know that he would be making the final four. Enzo goes over to console Ragan. Enzo tells Ragan that he had no idea that he was going up. Ragan says that it shows that Enzo is at the bottom rung of the alliance that the threesome has. Ragan and Enzo say that you never know what may happen. It's finally time for Enzo to take the penguin costume off. The houseguests did a shunning ceremony. The shunning ceremony was really lame, with Enzo talking to the rubber ducky in the backyard and explaining that he is not its daddy.
Ragan admits that he is alone, and he has to study in case the competition is a knowledge test. Ragan studies the pictures and goes over and over the characteristics of each person's face. Then Ragan went into the backyard and did some weight training. Ragan said that he wants to be the guy who beats the odds, but it doesn't look promising for him. Poor Ragan!
Time for the veto competition. It's one of those ones where there is a speaking clam, and the houseguests have to answer the clam's questions by finding the combination of names that would make up the song title. Each round, the last person to find the names if eliminated. Britney realized too that she would have to win the POV to stay off the block. It seems that everyone wants to win. Enzo even says that he has to kill the competition to get off the block and finally win something. The answer to the first song was a combination of Monet and Matt or Monatt. Lane managed to run up behind Ragan to get the last shell. They thought Ragan would be out in the first round. Well, Lane is stupid, and picks Mochel. Ragan remained in the game because he had the right name. The second was a combination of Rachel and Kristen, Rasten. The second round came down to Ragan and Hayden, but Ragan made it back first. Hayden was out. The third round was a combination of Matt and Kathy, Mathy. Ragan was back first in the third round, followed by Enzo. Britney was eliminated. It came down to Ragan and Enzo, and Britney realizes that it means there will be a replacement nominee. It was time for the final round. Ragan realizes that it will be a battle because they both need the veto. When they came down the slide, Enzo and Ragan fought to get at the CD. Enzo knew where Brendrew (Brendon and Andrew) was. it was hilarious to see the fight for it. Enzo totally manhandled Ragan. Ragan threw his CD at the clam. Enzo went over to Ragan and started saying "who wants it more, that's what it is at this point. It's a fight." Ragan told Enzo more than once to just leave him alone. Ragan realizes that he's in the worst position because the guys have been working together from the beginning and Britney has been in with Lane. Ragan said that he just felt heartbroken because he gave his all to the game. Ragan says that it's going to be a lonely week. Enzo called Ragan a sore loser. Enzo said that Ragan had the advantage because they both knew where it was, and Ragan was closer to the CD. Enzo called Ragan a big baby, who was crying by himself.
Hayden said that he was glad that Enzo at least won something. Britney said her strategy is to stay in close with the guys. Hayden said that he thinks he may go up in Enzo's place. Britney said that it would be the safest week for her to Hayden, but she admits in the DR that she doesn't trust Hayden and Enzo. Hayden claims that he is okay with going up, but then he says in DR that the pawn is the one that goes home. Britney asks Lane who is going up. Britney tells Lane that Hayden said that he thinks it's 100% that he will go up. Britney says that if Lane puts her up, she will be going home. Meanwhile Hayden and Enzo want Britney to go up so they can backdoor Britney.
Back to the punishments. The first was no cups or silverware. The second punishment was that the houseguests has to use a sock puppet to speak for 12 hours. If they don't use the sock puppet, they are Have Nots. The sock puppets look like the houseguests. Enzo's was balding, Britney's was blonde, Hayden's had a mop of hair, Lane's had a hat, and Ragan's had a bow tie. Ragan was by himself cyring, and talking to his sock puppet, and saying that he wanted his life back. It was really lame seeing the sock puppets talk. Enzo wasn't good at having the sock puppet talk when he talked. The "big" conversation was Enzo not understanding golf.
It seems that Kathy and Brendon were the only ones cleaning the house, and it was nasty. So Britney got out a trash bin, and started throwing things out. It seems that the fridge was really stinking. There was a great deal of waste. It seems they opened food containers, and then never finished it. After Britney cleaned the kitchen by herself, Hayden came to wheel out the trash can. The third punishment was another lame one. Ragan thought it would be a combo of Brendon and Rachel. The punishment was to dance whenever music played. The punishment was 12 hours. The punishments were the lamest thing ever! Hayden can't dance worth a darn. They also thrown in classical music. Lane asks Hayden if he is okay with going up. Lane doesn't want to put Britney up because he doesn't trust Enzo and Hayden to not put out Britney. But Lane realizes that is bad for him. Lane asks Britney about going up. Britney said that she doesn't want to go up because she thinks that the guys will vote her out. Britney said that she knows that Lane likes Hayden better. Britney tells Lane that she think Hayden has more friends in the jury house and that she can't win against Hayden. It would be interesting if they backdoor Hayden this week.
Time for the veto ceremony. Enzo hopes that Lane puts up Britney. Hayden doesn't want to go on the block because a couple of deals could be made, and Hayden could go out. Enzo removes himself. Lane starts by saying that it's an amazing group, and that it sucked to nominate a third person. Lane nominated Hayden. Hayden knows that Ragan is desperate to stay in the house, and he may be making plans to stay in the house. Lane said that he wants to go to the final two with Britney because Lane thinks that he can beat Britney in the final two. Hmm, I think the folks in the jury house would vote for Britney over Lane. We'll see. I hopw Hayden goes to the jury tomorrow, because he is just plain annoying!
Sunday, August 29, 2010 -- Evening
Boring, BoringThe live feeds for Big Brother have been boring. Lane won HOH. He nominated Ragan and Enzo. Enzo won POV, surprisingly, and Britney will probably go up in his place. Ragan will be outsed next Thursday, and the houseguests are just being lame. I'm sure the final two will come down to two Brigade members.
The Big Brother episode this evening recapped the double eviction episode. Britney commented that Matt was a shady character, and Ragan said that he wasn't sorry to see Matt go because Matt compaigned against him. The recap was annoying, but we did get to hear the houseguests viewpoint on what happened. The Brigade was going to vote out Ragan if he didn't win the POV. Britney was happy that Brendon didn't win the HOH because it meant that she was safe. When Hayden won HOH, Ragan knew that he would go on the block because he knows there's a men alliance. The Brigade assures Brendon tha tit will be either Ragan or Britney. Hayden admits that he didn't want to evict Brendon, that his goal was to evict Ragan. Enzo said that when it came down to Britney or Brendon, that Brendon was going to be harder to beat than Britney. As Enzo said, Rachel is in the jury house, and they can go and make ugly babies together. It will be interesting to see what is going on in the jury house this week. Britney admits that she is nervous because the next HOH is important. Enzo admits that if he won HOH that he would put Britney or Ragan up. Lane did not want to be the bad guy and put them up, so he was hoping that Enzo win HOH and make it easier on Lane.
The HOH game was an interesting one. Hayden drew two cards for the houseguests. Then they had to roll a ball down this chute and get the ball to land on your cards. The person who takes the most shots to get both cards in the hand of blackjack for that round is out. In the first round, Lane is two for two. Ragan got the blackjack cards in three shots. Britney could only get one card with her five balls, and Enzo got them in four shots, so Britney was out. In round two, Ragan started it off by only getting one card with five balls. Enzo didn't get any cards with five balls. Lane was hoping to throw the competition, but realizes that he has to win in order to keep the Brigade in the house. Enzo was eliminated. Hayden said that Enzo is a consistent competitor, awful. Enzo said tha the longer he stays in the house, the more embarrassing it gets. In the final round, Lane took all five shots to get blackjack. Ragan only got one card out of five shots, so Lane was HOH. Ragan realized that Lane was in an alliance with everyone else in the house, so Ragan will probably go up on the block. After the competition, Ragan went off to cry about how much he really needed to win HOH since he is in the lowest position in the house. Ragan said that he is a fighter and will do what he has to do to stay in the game. Lane asks who wants the pawn spot, and Hayden said that it should be Enzo. No one wants to be the pawn though.
Time for the HOH room. Britney says that she's excited to see his pictures and his family. Enzo said that Lane's brother looked really scary, and he does. Lane said that he works in his family's oil business, and he takes people out golfing and smoozes with them. It seems like Lane has it easy in life. Later, Britney tells Hayden that she doesn't think Lane needs $500,000 so why should she vote for him. It has nothing to do with needing it, but everything to do with earning it. After all this is a game. These people are so irritating with that whole "who needs it." Enzo and Hayden talk about trying to get Lane to put Britney on the block instead of a member of the Brigade. Enzo said that Britney won't take them to the final two.
Enzo wears his penguin suit on the weight set, and pretends he is on a space ship. Meanwhile Britney made a crown out of aluminum foil for herself. Then Lane is offered a Pandora's box. Lane gets an offer of $10,000 hanging from the money tree. So Lane opens Pandora's box. Lane reads the HOH instructions, and finds that he has to pick three envelopes, and if he picks wisely, he can get $10,000. His first pick is $79, then $12, and finally, he gets $0.17, so he winds up with $91,17. Meanwhile, he unleased three punishments on the house. I don't think that Hayden believes Lane. Ragan thought the punishent was a clone of Rachel. Meanwhile, Lane realizes that all he could get is the car filled with gas. The first punishment took away the silverwear and cups for a week. Wow! What a punishment. So you eat with your hands and have to drink out of bowl. Big whoop! Lane is talking to Britney, and asking for her viewpoint. Britney said that she would not use the POV on Ragan. Britney said that she would u Enzo because he is after her. Britney realizes that Lane would not consider putting up Hayden, but he would consider putting up Britney. Lane thought it was the worst HOH because he didn't know who to put up. Enzo said that Lane should put up Britney and Ragan. Lane said it sucked because no one wanted to be the pawn. Lane asks Hayden about being the pawn, and Hayden gets really upset. Lane tells Hayden that he hasn't been up there in a while and that maybe he should go up. Enzo said that he is starting not to trust Lane because he doesn't want to put up Britney.
Hayden admits that he doesn't know what Lane will do. Ragan knows that he is going up. Enzo said that Britney should go up with Ragan. Britney admits that she will be pissed if she does up as the pawn. Lane said that it's hard to hurt feelings, but he has to look out for himself right now. Lane pulls Britney's key first to Hayden and Enzo's shock. Hayden's key comes out next. Lane said that the Ragan nomination is strategy, and that Enzo is good people. Ragan realizes that he has to win POV because he has no one in the house. Enzo doesn't understand why Lane didn't put him up. Lane said that Britney won competitions, Enzo has won nothing. So maybe Britney should stay and Enzo should go. The big question is who will Lane put up in Enzo's place?
Friday, August 27, 2010 -- Early Morning
Lane HOHThe HOH competition was blocked on the live feeds, but it was shown on Showtime, supposedly. Lane won! Now that's a shock!
Thursday, August 26, 2010 -- Evening
Double Eviction NightIt's double eviction night on Big Brother, and Matt stupidly did not out the Brigade. In fact, he's been on the live feeds wishing them the best, even though they all threw him under the bus. Of course, Britney is the most stupid because of all because she put him up instead of Hayden.
The show starts with the Brigade alliance. Julie hints that the truth about the Brigade comes out. Matt was hoping that the Brigade would have saved him, but he didn't know they were backdooring him. What an alliance! Britney goes to Ragan and apologizes to Ragan about putting up his friend. Ragan says that he knows it's a game, but he would have never done that to Matt. Matt goes to talk to Ragan. Ragan didn't want to talk to Matt because he saw it as a betrayal. Ragan said that he learned that he had to put feelings aside and learn how to play the game. Matt asks Britney why Ragan wasn't talking to him. Britney doesn't want to tell Matt that she told Ragan that Matt threw him under the bus. Matt realizes that Britney must have told Ragan that Matt threw him under the bus. Matt goes to Ragan, and thought that his best bet was to act stupid. Ragan said that when Matt told him that everyone is talking about Ragan hard core campaigning to keep Matt in the house. Ragan goes out to talk to everyone, and Enzo tells everyone that he and Hayden were going to split the vote. At that time Ragan realized that there was an alliance between Enzo, Hayden, Matt, and Lane. Ragan tells Matt that he realizes that the boys were all in an alliance. Matt acts squirrely, and Matt says that he finds this difficult to believe. Then Matt realizes that this might be good for him because Lane and Hayden might keep Matt around to keep Ragan in line. Matt tells Lane and Hayden that Ragan is out to get the Brigade. Lane and Hayden realize that they may need Matt to keep Ragan under control. Hayden doesn't know if he trusts Matt, and if Matt didn't tell Ragan about the Brigade. After this, we see Ragan memorizing all the numbers related to Big Brother. Ragan realizes that he has to win the next HOH because that is the only shot he has.
Finally Julie lets them know it's double eviction night. Enzo wishes his wife a happy anniversary. Enzo said he feels shunned because he's in the penguin suit and no clothes (because he gave them away in the POV competition). Enzo would not shut up. As usual, Matt being a loser, he didn't out the Brigade. Brendon votes to evict Matt (for Rachel--puke), Hayden evicts Matt, Ragan evicts Matt (what a loser!), and of course, Lane votes to evict Matt. So Matt is out. This practically seals the deal for annoying Hayden to win. Matt hears that it's 4-0. Matt seems to leave with some grace and humor. Julie comments that Ragan didn't even vote for him. Matt told Ragan to vote with everyone else. Julie asks Matt about throwing the HOH last week. Matt realizes that was the worst decision of the game. Matt said that he thought he was safe in this past week, and he realzied that wanted to play in today's competition. That was stupid, he sees. Julie asks why he didn't out the Brigade and team up with Ragan and Britney. Matt said Britney was an evil succubus. Julie chastised him and said that he shouldn't use such language. As she said, it's okay with the FCC, but not with her. Matt said he didn't know if he could make Britney and Brendon come over to his side by outing the Brigade, and thought that this was the best thing to do. Matt said that he felt bad about the whole Ragan thing, and that he tried to be subtle.
It's time for the HOH competition. Julie asks a questions. The houseguests have to run over some boxes, look through packing peanuts, get the two names of the houseguests that answer the question. They can only take the names up one at a time. The question: which houseguests have been HOH twice. Rachel and Matt of course. Brendon got the first name, but Hayden got both names. Hayden did it the smart way. He found both names, then ran one back, and then the other. So Hayden finally wins one and gets a crucial HOH.
Hayden is telling Brendon that he has to do something. I think he was telling Brendon that he might put him up. Lane, Hayden, and Enzo obviously gather together, and then get joined by Brendon who says that he doesn't want to go up on the block. Julie calls them to the couches. Hayden nominates Brendon and Ragan. Ragan says jokingly "how dare you!" Hayden claims that he made a deal with Lane and Britney last week for her not to put him up, so that's how it goes.
The POV competition is a before or after one. First, did they spin on a giant paintcan before or after bowling. Everyone gets before. Then in Hang 10, did Andrew call off before or after Kristen. Everyone got after. Did Matt call Brendon a big dummy before or after the Zing Bot. Brendon was on Before but ran off to after. Enzo go tit wrong. Brendon was out on the second question. Briteny was eliminated on the next question. Ragan got the POV. Woo-hoo! I think that means that Brendon may go home. Hayden does not look too happy.
Britney asks Enzo and Lane if she has their vote. Ragan goes to change to jeans. He probably realizes that he will have to compete and win HOH. Brendon pleads his case to Ragan. He says something lame about not wearing shoes and losing because of that. Ragan said it's do or die for him so he has to use the POV as Janelle would say "on myself!" Hayden puts Britney in Ragan's place. Then yet another set of commercials. There have been too many commercial breaks in the past half hour.
Britney gives a shout out to her family and Nick. She tells the others that she loves and adores all the guys and they are friends forever. Brendon agrees with Britney about loving everyone and that they are a big dysfunctional family. Time for the vote. Enzo votes to evict Brendon. Ragan was next and he voted to evict Brendon. Brendon is out. Lane voted to evict Brendon. Brendon is out with a vote of 3-0. Brendon wishes them all luck. Ragan tells Brendon that he did an awesome job. Brnedon said that he will get to eat now and sleep in a real bed. Ragan admits that Brendon battled. Brendon admits that he's not shocked even though they said he was a pawn. Brendon thinks that Ragan would have gone if he was still on the block. Brendon says that the house is like a really nice prison. Brendon also said that your brains go as soon as you walk in the door. Julie asked about Rachel leaving, and she said that life was easier for Brendon in the house without Rachel. Brendon admits that Rachel ruffled a lot of feathers in the house. Brendon is hoping to get serious and entice Rachel out to UCLA. Brendon thinks that Britney's act is the one that is working now. No additional HOH competition right now. So the competition will be later on the live feeds and then shown on Sunday. Ragan and Britney talk about how Hayden found both names around the same time. That was really a smart move on Hayden's part.
Wednesday, August 25, 3010 -- Evening
You Just Want to Slap Him
Before I comment on tonight's POV show, I just want to say that I want to slap Matt. The guy is the biggest doof ever! HIs fellow Brigade members have been throwing him under the bus since Thursday, and not once has he outed them. He needs to just spill the beans to the house that the four were in an alliance, and hope that he can convince Brendon, Ragan, and Britney (since there will be a tie) to evict Enzo. I would so love if that happens. If it doesn't, then I see it somehow coming down to Hayden and Enzo in the final three. That would really suck!
Now on to the show. The show started post nominations. The producers made a big deal about how Matt threw the HOH competition, which was really stupid of him. Britney admitted that Enzo was a pawn, and that Brendon was the target. Brendon says in DR that Rachel would be upset with Britney for stabbing him in the back. Brendon goes into the Have Not room, and he starts crying and talking to himself about how hard it is to be in the house alone without Rachel. It's like he's talking to Rachel. Enzo comes into the room, and Brendon calls them all slime balls. Enzo then goes to Britney who promises Enzo that he was not going to go home. Enzo said that Britney's word is like mud because she obviously doesn't keep her word. Hayden and Lane are in the backyard, and Hayden says that Matt thinks he owns the place. Lane said that this week is the week to make the power move. Hayden said that if Matt doesn't go home, then he's going to run away with the game. Lane goes up to Britney and talks to her like she is an idiot. Lane said that it's really important and she can't tell anyone. Lane says that she has to backdoor Matt. Lane said that Matt has Ragan and Britney as partners. Britney said that if she backdoors Matt then that's not good for her. Lane tries to convince her that getting Matt out would be good for her. Brendon said that she feels safer with Matt in the house than with Brendon.
Time to pick players for the veto. Britney picks houseguest choice, and she chooses Matt. Britney thinks Matt will play hard for the veto. Brendon picks Lane, and Enzo picks Hayden. Enzo hopes that one of the Brigade will win the POV. Yeah, right. The backyard looks like a zoo with cages of animals. All of the house guests go into a cage. To add veto points, they have to take a punishment. To lose points, they take prizes. Brendon decides to take the most punishment. Hayden decides to take the prizes. To keep it confidential, Ragan has to host from in the house. The first was who was wiling to take a chum bath. Then it was who was willing to handcuff themselves to someone of their choice for veto points. Matt, Britney, and Brendon are the only ones willing to take punishments. To get a phone call from home, who would give up six veto points. Lane takes it. Then they had the option for veto points by shaving the hair. Then there was the Penguin suit. Then there was a Hawaiian vacation, which Hayden took. There was also a choice to be a Have not for three weeks. Then there was an option to get $5000, which Hayden took. They also got an option to give up all their clothes for veto points.
It was time to reveal the punishments. Brendon has the handcauff to a houseguest, and he picked Britney. Britney was really pissed off at that. Britney was pissed off that someone took the phone call. Brendon seemed to take all the punishments. He got the chum bath and the head shave. Enzo, as we know, was the penguin. Britney was really pissed that no onw was showing up, and they were taking prizes. Brendon go the POV. Lane said it's not the end of the world. They just need to backdoor Matt. Britney said that she is considering every single person because they all walked away with prizes. At least Hayden walked away with all the prizes. Britney cries to Ragan because people took prizes over punishments. As Britney said, how can we not get off one person. The other guys are downstairs talking. Enzo said that Matt must have won all the prizes. Enzo calls Matt a snake, but it was Hayden who is the snake. Enzo said that he wants Matt up against him in a penguin outfit. Enzo claims that Matt is lying about not getting the prizes. Matt and Ragan leave while Britney talks to Lane. Britney said that they all threw the competition because they wanted Matt up. Britney guesses, correctly, that Hayden took all the prizes. Lane claims that it is Matt who won the prizes. Meanwhile Lane continues to work Britney claiming that Brendon won't be after her. Britney said that she has no votes in the jury house, and everyone wants her to do the dirty work. In DR, Lane admits that he adores Britney, but that he will manipulate her to get what he wants. Dirty backstabber.
Britney goes into the HOH room and sees a Pandora's box. Britney gets one hour of consultation with a former BB houseguest. It's good Jesse. Jesse said that she gets one hour of advice on bodybuilding. Meanwhile the guys are in the backyard having a party with good drink and pretty girls. Then we see video of Britney doing exercises with Jssie. That was so lame. Britney tells the guys about spending one hour with a BB houseguest asking for advice. They all felt bad for Britney, but happy for themselves. Britney and Brendon get called to the DR to handcuff themselves together. It's so funny in the DR when Brendon is saying the chum doesn't smell so bad, and Britney is silently mouthing "help me." Hilarious. Every hour, Brendon has to dunk himself in chum every hour, all through the night. Britney said that they could only sleep for 40 minutes at a time. Ragan coes out with the key ans says that it's the end of the 24 hours, which was actually 18 hours.
Matt goes to Britney, and Britney said that she won't be up Ragan because he didn't play the veto, and she wouldn't put up Lane. Matt doesn't understand that it's either him or Hayden, so Matt starts to petition to put up Ragan, stabbing his best friend in the back. And he did it to save the stupid Brigade. Unfortunately, Matt trusts and tells the Brigade members and they out him to Britney. Lane tells Britney that Matt wants Ragan to go home. While he says this, he plays with the cereal boxes and won't look at her. Britney said that if she finds out that Lane is in an alliance with anyone else, she will be pissed. Well, she should start getting pissed. Enzo, Lane, and Hayden really play Britney to get her to put up Matt. Britney tells Ragan that everyone has been telling her that Matt has to go. Ragan tells Britney that if Matt goes, he is next. Then Britney tells Ragan that people will do things when their backs are against the wall and admits that Matt has been telling her to put up Ragan.
It's time for the POV ceremony. Matt claims that he tried to be subtle about putting up Ragan to save the Brigade. Matt doesn't know that the Brigade has pushed him under the bus, but he'll find it out after the veto meeting. Brendon, of course, takes himself off the block. Britney tells Brendon that he earned the POV, and that it's hard, but she chooses to put up Matt. Ragan looks hurt because of the backstab, and Matt looks shocked. Britney said that she can't trust Matt because he went against his friend. Matt still believes that the Brigade compaigned for him. Ragan said two hours ago he would have been devastated, but Ragan would have fallen on his sword for Matt, and Matt stabbed him in the back. Well, we shall see who is left standing after the double eviction tomorrow night.
Sunday, August 22, 2010 -- Evening
Nomination show tonight. The show started with Matt playing the diamond veto and calling Brendon a big dummy. Brendon is insulted because he thinks he is much more intelligent than Matt. Matt is a member of Mensa. When Hayden heard about the diamond veto, he was scared because he and Enzo had talked about sending Matt home. Matt said that having the diamond veto really openeed up his eyes to the Brigade. As Matt said, Hayden was straight up, but Enzo wasn't. Obviously, that was the end of the Brigade. Brnedon was upset to see that the three headed monster, Ragan, Matt, and Britney are still around. Ragan was so happy that Matt was staying to help him fight Brendon. Brendon said it's not easy being a diabolical super genius. Lane said that it was a tough game, but Kathy didn't play the game. Lane did thank Kathy for doing his laundry. Ragan commented that everyone left in the house is a fighter. I would say everyone except for Lane, Enzo, and Hayden.
Enzo is worried that Matt knew that he wanted Matt to go home. Matt says that no one can trust him, and Brendon says that Matt is slimy, and that no one should trust him. I guess that Matt should have quietly gone home. I guess that would have proved that he is trustworthy. What a bunch of losers! We saw the recap of Britney winning HOH. Lane is happy because he knows that he won't go on the block. Enzo said that Britney is really close to Matt, Ragan, and Lane so that is scary. Brendon, however, thinks that he has a deal with Britney. After the HOH competition, Enao is in the bathroom complaiing about Britney winning HOH, and how stupid Enzo is because he can't win anything. Yep, Enzo, you are right, you are stupid! Enzo is worried about who goes up against Brendon. After the HOH, Britney and Ragan are celebrating in one of the bedrooms. Ragan said that he still can't believe that Matt is there, and Britney ahs HOH. Matt tells Lane that he was kicked out of the Brigade. Hayden tries to pretend that he is so happy that Matt isn't going home. Matt sees it as suspicous behavior.
Time to see Britney's HOH room. Matt thought that the bizarre picture of prom queen Britney was the best picture ever, just because it is so scary looking. We also see the pictures of Nick, Britney's boyfriend. Lane makes fun of Britney's eyes because he says that he is the total opposite of Nick. Big Brother then shows them side by side (Nick and Lane) and they do look a lot alike.
Enzo tries to do damage control since Enzo said that Matt was going home, and now Matt is still there. Matt says he's done with that, and that Enzo has to watch his back. Meanwhile, Matt says that the Brigade is his number one priority. Britney laughs as she tells Matt and Ragan that Ragan was close to suicide. Matt asks Britney what she was going to do. Matt tells Britney that Enzo hasn't been on the block, and that maybe he should go on the block. The reason is that Matt really doesn't trust Enzo, and thinks that he has been kind of shady.
Lane decides to show the Brigade that he should be the Beast by bench pressing as much weight as he can. Lane gets the barbell setup with 325 pounds. The other Brigade members are there to spot him. They help Lane get it off the rack, and then Lane successfully does a few reps with the barbell. Lane, Britney, and Matt area talking at night, and Matt tells them how he dreamt about Hayden without a shirt. Lane and Britney were really confused about it. Lane says that back home in Texas if you have a dream like that, you don't tell anyone.
Brendon goes up to the HOH room, and asks Britney if she is going back on her deal with him. Brendon tells Britney that he is going to win HOH next week, and that he will go after Britney next week. Brendon then claims that Matt and Ragan were pushing Brendon last week to send Britney home. Britney said that if Ragan and Matt were pushing her under the bus last week, she would be mad, but she has trouble believing Brendon.
Time for Have and Have not competition. Lane said that Britney was looking really hot, and if they were in a bar, he would knock out her boyfriend and buy her a drink. Lane, Matt, and Ragan are on the same team, and they are really hoping to win the competition. Matt and Ragan don't want to be Have Nots. Basically, one side has to drink a shot of something. If the other side guesses who had the bad shot, that side gets a point. If they can't figure it out, the drinkers get a point. The first group to four wins, and that other is the Have Not group. Ragan claims that he can't be a Have Not again because he's down to his birth weight. Lane had a stoic face, Brendon was slightly whiny, and Ragan was a drama queen. Enzo guesses that it was Matt, and he, Hayden, and Brendon got a point. Lane and Matt thought it was Brendon. They were right, and they got a point. Ragan's poker face was to be big and funky, and to channel his inner Lady Gaga. The other side thinks it was Ragan, and it was Lane, so they didn't get points. Brendon, of course, took the Rodeo Rachel shot. Ragan makes fun of what the drink would be (silicon, funk, and acne). Brendon drank it, but they didn't guess it. Hayden comments that Ragan was crying for weeks, why not keep on crying. Matt took the shot, and they other side didn't guess it. Ragan, Matt, and Lane guessed it right. It comes down to Matt, Ragan, and Lane drinking. If the other side guesses it, they continue. If not, Enzo, Hayden, and Brendon are Have Nots. They guessed Matt, but it was Ragan, who drank the Ragin' Ragan. So Enzo, Brendon, and Hayden are Have Nots. They have to eat broccoli and bean dip with the slop.
Matt tells Britney that he should be putting up Enzo because Enzo hasn't been on the block yet. Matt thinks that Britney seems to be taking his suggestions.
In the backyard, Britney and Ragan freak out over a moth. Lane thinks it is funny because it's just a moth who isn't going to do much damage to anyone. Lane, Enzo, and Hayden talk in the pool. They think that Matt made a bad move by tring to figure out Enzo's vote. Well, he found out, and now Enzo is shitting himself, and trying to get Hayden and Lane against Matt. Britney calls in Hayden, Lane, and Enzo to talk to them in the HOH room. Britney asks who the house wants out. Lane said that they want Brendon out. Enzo said that he has a good sense of character and that he's suspicous of Matt. Britney said that she doesn't want to put up Matt because of the drama. Lane said that she could just tell him that he's a pawn. Britney said that she's going to talk to Matt. The Brigade seem really happy that they are getting their way. Britney says she wants to talk to Matt. They talk in the storage room. Britney said that she thought Matt was the best to compete against Brendon as a pawn. Matt freaks out and says that he doesn't want to do it. As Britney said, she wishes she could be in a coma for her HOH reign, because Matt wants one of the three guys up, and the three guys want Matt up. Britney should realize by that that the three guys are in an alliance.
Brendon says that if Britney puts him up, he is going to put her up next week when he wins HOH. Enzo said that Britney would have crossed the line if she put Enzo up as the pawn. As Britney said, it's hard because she has to consider who own longeity and who she wants around her when it comes to the end. Time for the nomination ceremony. The first key out is Hayden's, followed by Ragan, Lane, and Matt. Enzo and Brendon are on the block. Britney tells Enzo that he is the only one who wasn't on the block. Britney said that she nominated Brendon because he was after her last week, and she has to play for herself to get her farther in the game. Matt said that Brendon or Enzo leaving would not be a bad thing. Enzo claims that he will get the veto, yeah, right, and get Matt up in his place.

Brendon Wins Veto
Brendon won the POV competition today. I think it was one of those where the person had to let things happen to them, like getting their head shaved. I say that because Brendon has a shaved head. Enzo is in pengin costume, and if there were justice, he would be evicted in the costume. Britney is saying that she would have to put up Matt. I think that's a stupid move. If she had any sense, she would put up Hayden because Enzo and Hayden don't seem to be good at competitions. The thing that I think is funny was the attempt by Ragan as the saboteur to create dissention between Rachel and Brendon. The saboteur video said that Brendon was throwing competitions. What is interesting is that since Rachel left, Brendon has been winning things, like HOH and the POV. It does make you wonder if somehow Ragan did guess things right. If I were Rachel, I would start to wonder about it.
Friday, August 20, 2010 -- Evening
Britney pulled a power move. She nominated Brendon and Enzo taday. The other three members of the Brigade tried to encourage Britney to put up Matt, but she didn't. The claim is that she will put up Matt if Brendon or Enzo removes themselves from the block. I'm wondering if she means that. I think she might be hoping that the nominations remain the same. If that is the case, supposedly Brendon will be evicted and Matt will be targetted next week.

Diamonds Are Matt's Best Friend
Eviction night on Big Brother. I can't wait for Matt to play the diamond veto. I hope that Matt isn't as stupid as Marcellas. Lane admits that he has to go against Matt to stay in the house. Brendon said that when Matt goes into the Jury house, she will know that Matt loves her. Enzo said that it wasn't supposed to be two Brigade members up on the block, but it might be time for Matty to hit the road. Ragan starts crying and saying in DR that he has a great amount of affection for Matt. Ragan cries over the rare bone disease that Matt's wife "has." Matt feels really bad that he can't tell Ragan about it because he would lose the veto. Matt says he doesn't have a shot since he couldn't be HOH or play for veto. Ragan said that it wold be priceless if Matt could stay, Matt winks at the camera. Lane and Enzo look shamefaced and they say that they will let the person know who will get voted out. Hayden tells Matt that Rachel left a message for Brendon. Matt learns about the pretzel message. Matt wonders why Kathy told them, but didn't tell Matt. Matt says that its betrayal that she didn't tell him about the message. So now Matt has Kathy on the replacement list. Enzo and Hayden tell Lane that he has their vote. Lane is also sure that he has Britney's vote. Enzo says Matty's going home, that's it. Matt and Enzo talk, and Enzo doesn't know that Matt is scoping them out. Enzo tells Matt that it's the toughest decision he had to make. Matt realizes that Enzo wants to get rid of him and that Enzo still wants the Brigade vote from Matt in the jury house.
Ragan is looking for things to do as the Saboteur. He chooses to go with leaving a note saying that he knows someone's secret. Ragan goes into one of the bedrooms, and stuffs the note under one of the pillows. Later Kathy is sleeping in the room, and Enzo finds the note under his pillow. The note says "I know your secret." Kathy tells him that she made his bed earlier. Then Enzo tells Hayden, Britney, Lane, Matt, and Ragan. Enzo thinks that Kathy is the saboteur because she made the bed, and she hasn't in the past. Everyone talks about how Kathy has been making beds to cover her trail. Then Matt says that Kathy has been playing both sides of the house. Ragan is shocked that no one suspected him, and that he is now $20,000 richer. He thanks America.
Britney is asked about seeing Rachel back in the house. Britney did not think it was real at first. Then Julie asks Ragan about Rachel. Ragan said that his integrity is not for sell and being bullied is not work $500,000. Lane says that he wants muscle milk. Lane says it tastes like Thanksgiving food in milk. Julie asks everyone if they think the saboteur is in the house. Julie also tells them that the saboteur's reign is over. Next up: Matt's decision.
Julie has a segment on Lane and Britney. Britney's mom said that she knew Britney would do something different. Britney's mom said that she seems very comfortable around Lane, and that she supports her however it goes. The Mom thinks Lane ahs a crush on Britney, but she thinks that Lane's alliance is with the Brigade. Lane's mom says that Lane is edgy and complex. She also thinks that Lane really likes Britney, and that he will probably bring her home. Lane asks is they will have a makeout party when they go to the jury house. His brother said that he thinks Lane might be interested. It was cute seeing Britney get on Lane's back as he does pushups.
Time for the eviction and the possible use of the diamond veto. Matt goes first making jokes about Matt needing notes from his girlfriend in pretzel. Then Matt calls Brendon a big dummy, and that he won't be sending Matt home tonight. Julie tells them all about the diamond veto and how Matt got it. Ragan and Britney are really surprised. Matt wimps out and puts up Kathy. So Lane gets to give his speech, and said it sucked being up against a friend and another friend. Kathy says that she loved everyone. Kathy tells Matt that it's okay. Kathy said that she will continue to live by her morals. Brendon also looks shocked. It is now time to evict. Hayden, Enzo, Ragan, Matt, and Britney evicts Kathy. Ragan beams as he evicts Kathy. Britney is jumping up and donw in the air and high fives Matt. I have never seen such a happy group of people. All the voters are beaming.
Time to announce the vote, and Kathy is out by a vote of 5-0. Kathy hugs everyone, and tells everyone to take care. She also asks who is going to feed the fish, and asks for a show of hands. Ragan volunteers to do it. Lane tells Matt that he ruined his speech by using the diamond veto. Kathy thinks Matt put her up because Matt is closer to the others. Kathy thought it was a hard decision, but that he used the easier way out. Kathy said that it hurts because she couldn't say good-bye, and she says that it is really okay. She thought they were distant because Kathy is older. Kathy is off to the jury house.
We saw how the houseguests had to play Big Brother says, like Simon says. It seems this will be part of the HOH competition. They had to go in the bock and howl at the moon, toilet paper the HOH room, 12 jumping jacks in the kitchen, then there was a group hug for 2 minutes, 5 second hand-stand. The houseguests are in the voting boxes. They have to determine if the quote is true or false. First is that BB said to jumping jacks are an important part of physical fitness. Ragan and Hayden guessed wrong. BB said, there was no love to give a giant group hug for 2 min. Matt got it wrong and was eliminated. BB said to leisurely stroll and bark at the moon. They all got it as false which was right. BB said, TP the HOH room. It was false. Lane got it wrong, and it is down to Enzo and Britney. BB said turn your world upside down and shashay to the back yard. It was false and both got it. It was about making out, and they both got it wrong because it was true. BB said to chase your tail. Correct answer was true, and Britney is the HOH.
Julie goes to talk to the houseguests. Julie reminds Britney that she is the only woman left in the house. Matt is asked about keeping the diamond veto secret. Matt said it was hard watching folks cry around him. Next Thursday is a double eviction episode. Brendon is really quiet, and Ragan is in the Have Not room jumping and blowing kisses at the camera because Matt is staying, and that ends the show.
Wednesday, August 18, 2010 -- Evening
Brendon says in the show this evening that Brendon is a pawn, but that he wants Ragan to go home. Brendon claims that he doesn't want to put up Britney or Matt, even though they are on his list, because they play and win competitions. In the Have Not room, Ragan is crying about being on the block. Brendon then goes to apologize to Lane about putting him up, and says that Lane won't be going home. Time to pick players for veto. Brendon selects Enzo, Ragan picks Kathy, which is like having no one. Lane gets houseguest choice and he selects Hayden. Brendon is glad that Britney and Matt aren't playing, and they can't get the veto.
A weird, green, robot (guy in a robot costume) is the host for the veto competition. The houseguests went out into the backyard. They have to get one puzzle piece, go to the balance beam and spinning gear, then they have to spell out veto. If they fall off the balance beam, they are eliminated. Brendon wants Ragan to not win, and Lane doesn't want Ragan to win. Ragan said that he's confident that he will be out if doesn't win. Kathy says she is going to take her time, which results in a funny Britney DR entry where she mocks Kathy for not wanting to move fast in THIS competition. Kathy is a loser. She even admitted that she was dizzy. Lane said that they do that move on the gears in Texas. It's called the Dosey Do. The robot zings Enzo by telling Enzo that he always bombs in competitions. Britney doesn't want Ragan to win because she doesn't want to go up. Ragan said that Brendon thinks he is the smartest person in the house, but Brendon is only as smart as the person he can cheat off. Matt comments that he couldn't compete, but that the other Brigade members were buffoons. Kathy fell off the balance beam, like the loser she is, and she was eliminated. Ragan quickly won the power of veto. Ragan said that not only did the veto keep him off the block, but it won him $20,000 by keeping him in the game. Brendon says that at least he has Britney and Matt to go on the block. Lane said that if Ragan comes off the block, it's 50-50 it will be a Brigade member. (Either Kathy or a Brigade member.)
Ragan, Britney, and Matt were talking about Kathy being the one who should go home. Ragan said that he doesn't want to screw over Britney, and that he thinks the world of Britney, and that he thinks she is a kind, intelligent, warm human being. Ragan also thinks that Matt is a stand-up and amazing guy. Ragan said that he couldn't ask for two better friends. Enzo and Hayden are talking about who can go up. Enzo said maybe Matt would go home. Hayden said that Matt can win competitions and he's friends with Ragan and Britney. So the Brigade falls apart.
Brendon gets the option to open Pandora's Box. Brendon thinks that if he opens Pandora's Box that he will get to spend time with Rachel. Brendon opens the card that says he gets a 24 hour break from the house, and will be whisked away to a a leisure spot in Malibu. As soon as he leaves, Rachel rings the front door bell and comes in. Britney said that she wanted to throw up when Rachel came in saying "hello Bitches." Rachel said that someone opened Pandora's Box. Rachel goes up to the HOH room to say hello to Brendon. But Britney figures out that Brendon must have opened Pandora's box and Rachel is unleashed on the household. Rachel and Ragan really have a war of words. Well, Ragan had the good ones, but Rachel didn't have any good come-backs. Ragan said that if Rachel has treated anyone with a modicum of respect, she might find a friend in the house. Rachel can't believe that no one likes her. The rest ask about the jury house. Rachel asks Ragan if he is a bitch because he's gay. Ragan lashed at her saying that she was hated because she's not a good person. Rachel said "it's just a game" and Ragan said that's why her picture is black and white. Rachel said that she will make the next 24 hours miserable for Ragan, and he replies back atcha. I like Ragan. He really is witty and puts Rachel in her place. Scanky loser place!
The HOH room door opens. Rachel goes into the HOH and starts banging on the Pandora Box door. Rachel is stupid and thinks Brendon is in the house. Meanwhile, he is at the jury house calling for Rachel. Then Brendon finds a note at the jury house saydin that while he is there, Rachel is elsewhere. Brendon said it would have been better to have her. Rachel goes out and tells Ragan that she is going to make soft, juicy cookies, and Ragan said that her classless person doesn't intimidate him. Ragan calls her a wicked witch, and says that the only thing real about her are the pimples on her chin. Rachel tells Ragan that no one likes him in the real world. Ragan said that she lost. She's not in the game. Ragan calls her a vile devil child, and tells Rachel that her game in the house is over. I love it when Ragan mocks Rachel's laugh, and when he lectures her about her negative behavior. I loved it when he said the only reason she was back in the house was because her boyfriend opened Pandora's Box and unleashed something awful in the house. Ragan really got the better of Rachel. To appreciate the fight, you have to watch the video on CBS' Big Brother page. The insults were flying fast and furious.
Rachel leaves Brendon a note in pretzels on the HOH table. She leaves the word Matt. Then Rachel shows Kathy that she left a message for Brendon with Matt's name. Rachel then left the house, and Kathy went to tell Hayden and Enzo that Rachel wanted Matt out. Brendon got into the house, and found the pretzel message from Rachel. So Brendon knew that he was going to put up Matt because Rachel told him. Everyone tells him that Rachel ws there, and that he was at the jury house. Everyone tells him that it got really dramatic in the house because of the fights between Ragan and Rachel. Britney goes into the HOH room with Brendon, and Brendon wanted Britney's reassurance that he wouldn't not go up next week if Britney wins the HOH. Britney tells him that she is 100% not going to put himi up. Britney said that she would say whatever she has to say stay in the house another week. I would probably do the same. Ragan tells Brendon that people have to see him as Brendon instead of a part of Brendon and Rachel. Ragan tells Brendon that Matt has not thrown a single competition, and hasn't done anything wrong. Ragan said that if Matt goes up, Matt may stay, and that would be bad for Brendon. Brendon says that if he puts up Matt it will be for Rachel.
There's a saboteur video saying there is a competition tomorrow, and they should all get their sleep. Then the video comes up and shows them a bin of balls. The house guests are told to expect the unexpected. Then they are told to expect the unexpected. The houseguests are told there isn't a competition, it was just to keep eveyrone on their toes. Ragan thought it was an awesome sabotage idea.
At the veto meeting, Ragan takes himself off the block, and Matt goes up in his place. Ragan is heartbroken that he was the reason Matt went on the block. Enzo said that the worst happened and Matty might have to get whacked. Britney is relieved. Lane said that he saw Matt as a brother, but no sees him as a step brother. Matt said that he can't wait to stand up and use the diamond POV.
Tuesday, August 17, 2010 -- Evening
Diamonds Are Forever
Ragan removed himself from the block with the POV, and Brendon put Matt up in his place. So far, Matt hasn't used the diamond veto, but from the live feeds, he has been talking about it. No one believes Matt has any special powers, but they should think back to Pandora's Box. Hayden and Enzo are turning against Matt, so if Matt were smart, he would up put Hayden when he takes himself off. That would be the real power move. However, I think that Matt is a big, old meow-meow, and he will probably go for someone safe, like Kathy.
Sunday, August 15, 2010 -- Later Evening
Brendon Wins HOH and Nominations
The BB show started at 9:30 here on the East Coast. Brendon said during the HOH competition that he was just thinking he had to win the HOH. Matt said that the Brigade has a real problem winning a competition because only Matt seems to win. They need to get their act together and win. During the competition, Brendon kept on saying, "come on, Rach, this is for you." Brendon said in DR that he felt it was a spit in the face because he was supposed to get voted out. Lane commented that everyone wanted to be out of way. Lane said that Britney and Ragan kept around Lane like he was a bodyguard. As Lane said, he's not a bodyguard and no one is going to kill them. Lane thought in the DR that he should have blown away the HOH competition. During the competition, we just hear complaints. Hayden said his back was breaking and his arms were hurting. Enzo said that it was a city kid's nightmare. Kathy said that she couldn't figure which way was up. Ragan couldn't figure out what to do, and he quickly started to lag. Meanwhile, Brendon kept on talking about Rachel, and he quickly took a big lead. Enzo was complaining about how he couldn't do anything. Enzo wasn't worried because Enzo and Hayden made a side deal with Brendon 3 hours before HOH. Enzo came up with the idea because he thought that he and Hayden needed a side alliance outside of the Brigade. They talked to Brendon and Rachel and said that the next folks on the target would be Ragan and Britney. Britney didn't like that Brendon took the lead, but she wasn't doing much to catch up with him. Enzo just wanted to keep in front of Kathy. Matt said that Enzo is a useless player in competition, and Matt thought that it was ridiculous that Enzo was neck and neck with Kathy. Kathy admitted that she was stumped and couldn't figure out how to untie knots. Towards the end, it looked like Brendon was stumped, and that Lane was catching up with Brendon.
Lane thought for sure that he was closing in, and that he was going to win. Then Brendon suddenly figured it out. We could see Britney and Ragan just looking instead of trying to compete. Then Brendon got free and got HOH. Brendon then starts saying, that's what you get when you evict someone who is in love. Hayden hopes that none of the Brigade goes home. As Matt says, the Brigade needs to get its act together and win. Brendon picks Ragan, Britney, and Matt as the Have Nots. Per usual, Brendon picked the little people as the Have Nots. Ragan started to cry about being a Have Not. Brendon told them they should have kept Rachel because she wouldn't have won the HOH. Brendon sadi that the one person he wanted to share the win with wasn't there, and that his love for Rachel was his motivation. Lane, Enzo, Britney, and Matt were talking afterwards that they should have sent Brendon home because then Rachel would have been easier to pick off. Britney tells Enzo that it's easy for him because she stood up to Brendon last week, and now she has a huge target on her back. Lane tells Britney that if she wants to stay, then she will stay. So Lane is going to be working to keep Britney here. Britney cries in DR saying that she can't eat or take showers, and she is just trying to keep it together. Ragan started to cry, and then Britney was crying too. As Matt said, there he sits with emotional wrecks (Britney and Ragan) while he has the diamond POV. Matt said it was like being with a bunch of girls. Bendon took everyone up to see his HOH room. Lane said that he was amazed to see that Brendon had a family and wasn't cloned in a scientific lab. As Enzo said, he has to listen to Brendon's stories. Britney can't understand Kathy going up and sucking up to Brendon. Ragan said that he didn't want to be there to help a bully celebrate while Ragan might be walking out the door.
Lane, Britney, Hayden, and Matt were in the backyard playing pool. Britney said that Lane is like a big brother, and we see them fighting and wrestling. Hayden tells Enzo that he trusts Brendon more than Matt. Enzo wants to get rid of Ragan, but Hayden said that they have to get rid of Britney to bring Lane back into the Brigade. Enzo goes up to talk to Brendon, and Brendon said that he isn't going to put up Enzo. Brendon said that he is going to put up Lane and Britney. That shocks Enzo. Enzo keeps on saying that they need to put up Britney and Ragan. Enzo says that he doesn't like or trust Britney or Ragan. Brendon agrees. Brendon also says that he doesn't have much respect for Ragan. Brendon said that he has to play to keep himeself in the game. Brendon said that he has the keep himself in the game, but to stay true to the spirit of the game that he and Rachel wanted to play of putting up floaters. Enzo goes and tells Lane that Brendon wants to put up Britney and Lane. Lane said he's a calm man, but when he heard that Brendon wanted to put him up, Lane said, "I wanted to go to a bar, find the hottest girl, and then beat up her boyfriend."
It's time for the Saboteur. Ragan likes the one about a secret alliance. Ragan likes that suggestion because it ties in with Annie's that there were two people who knew it out. The Saboteur says that there is a pair, one male and the other female, and the Saboteur says that the pair is not obvious. Kathy and Britney were upset because it put attention to Britney and Kathy. Brendon says that he doesn't believe anyone in the house.
The houseguests are out in the backyard trying to figure out what the Have Nots can eat that week, and it's Eggplant and Escargot. Matt said that the snails smell like real dirt. Both Britney and Matt are disgusted. Ragan said that he doesn't eat eggplant of snails so the food is pretty bad. Ragan doesn't know how to get through the week, and Matt said not to give up. Matt said that Brendon may not have gotten it because Brendon was too wrapped up in Rachel. Ragan said that everyone has to make deals. Matt tells Ragan that Ragan has to make a deal. Matt tells Ragan to take care of himself. Matt tells Ragan that he has to save himself in any way possible. So Ragan goes up to Brendon (who tells him to make it quick). Ragan says that no one would expect a deal between him and Ragan, so they should make one now. Brendon said it's a compelling offer. But Brendon said that he can't forget Ragan spitting on the girl that he loves. Brendon goes and calls over Britney. Brendon asks Britney why she shouldn't go up on the block. Britney said that she shouldn't go up because she will play hard for the veto for Brendon. Britney said that she has no intention of keeping her word because she doesn't want to go home. Britney assures Brendon that she is in his corner. Britney says that what Brendon does for her, she will do for him.
Nomination time! Ragan said that he made an offer to Brendon that he would keep, but Brendon isn't very logical. Matt isn't very concerned because he has the diamond veto, and that will keep him safe. The first key out of the box is Enzo's, followed by Kathy, Hayden, Britney, and Matt. Brendon said it was the toughest decision, and that he has confidence in both because he wants people to fight to be in the competition and everyone fights to win. He doesn't want anyone who floats by. Ragan said it's lame that Brendon wants to avenge someone he knew for a month. Lane said that he'll stay in because he has the votes. Britney said that she doesn't trust Brendon. Brendon says it's his house, and he doesn't have to play by their rules.
Big Brother Delayed
The Big Brother show was delayed this evening. Golf ran over because of a tie. AT 8:30, 60 minutes was just starting, So more later on Brendon winning HOH and nominating Lane and Ragan. More news from the live feeds: Brendon opened Pandora's Box and unleashed Rachel on the houseguests for 24 hours while he was locked away, unable to see her. Obviously, he thought he was bringing her back into the house. I'll have more on the show later, maybe even tomorrow.
Friday, August 13, 2010 -- Evening
Brendon has nominated Lane and Ragan. It seems they are both shocked at their nominations, but who do you think Brendon can nominate? I think that Brendon is going to try to backdoor Matt. Won't he be surprised when Matt uses the diamond veto?
Thursday, August 12, 2010 -- Later Evening
Brendon won the HOH competition, far outdistancing the others. I think that he will be targeting Britney, Ragan, and Kathy because they were the ones who fought the most with Rachel. Matt might be another one on the list, but Matt had the diamond POV, so he should be a-okay. Brendon will also get to pick the three houseguests who will be Have Nots. I imagine it will be Britney, Ragan, and Kathy, but we'll see.
And from the feeds, it seems the Have Nots are Britney, Ragan, and Matt. They think that because they are smaller and weaker that Brendon is targeting them.
Thursday, August 12, 2010 -- Evening
Nah, Nah, Nah, Nah, Hey, Hey, Hey, Good-bye!
Eviction night on Big Brother. Let's hope it's a good one with lots of drama. The BB backyard has been off limits again, so folks are hoping for another endurance type of competition. Julie started the show by saying a showmance was coming to an end for the second week. The person who leaves tonight is the first member of the jury.
Recap of Brendon trying to get thrown out of the house so Rachel stays. After the POV, Ragan called Brendon a Neanderthal because Brendon goes after those who are weaker than him. Britney gave Rachel a hug, but wouldn't hug Brendon because as she said, Brendon is the biggest jerk ever, and a really scummy guy. Meanwhile, Rachel called Brendon into the storage room, and thanked him for throwing himself under the bus. Brendon claims in DR that he is in love, so he would give up a 1/2 million dollars for love. Britney and Rachel talk about Brendon. Britney tells Rachel that Brendon is so classless. Then Britney tells Rachel that Brendon hates women. Then Rachel starts crying, in an attempt to act like she was so upset and surprised that Brendon did such a classless thing. Then Britney goes out to talk to the guy about what a disgusting vile person Brendon is. Enzo agrees that Brendon doesn't pick on gusy that intimidate him. Lane, Hayden, and Enzo talk about stupid everyone is not to see that there is a Brigade. As Enzo says, Lane controls Britney, and Matt controls Ragan. Ragan tells Matt that they should evict Brendon over Rachel. However, that's not the talk on the live feeds. Britney and Ragan are in the hammock, and Rachel goes to talk to them so she can get votes. Ragan tells Rachel that her behavior over the past few weeks hasn't made sense to him. Ragan said that Rachel has been involved in every single argument. Rachel seems confused when Ragan tells her that she is not a good sport. Rachel starts to cry, because she is psycho and doesn't see what her issues are. Then Brendon storms over to the hammock, and starts to attack Ragan. Ragan tells Brendon that he wasn't part of the conversation. Then Brendon says that Ragan stabbed Rachel in the back. Brendon also claims that Ragan and Matt are in an alliance. Brendon miscorrects Ragan's correct pronounciation of Neanderthal. Britney does a caveman walk and does not act frightened of Brendon at all. The Brigade talks about how Brendon sucks at competition and how everyone is out to get him. Rachel staying would be a problem because she is good at competitions and would have a chip on her shoulder to get others.
What's the next thing for the lame Saboteur to do? The sabotage is so lame. Put Britney's bikini in the freezer. But Ragan chooses to do the one to create fear that the person leaving tonight is not going home. So the video says that Brendon and Rachel might not leave tonight. So Rachel and Brendon get all excited in happy about how they are staying here. The others start to think that either Brendon or Rachel has some sort of coup d'etat power. Ragan loved it, and said that the folks had no idea it was just to create tensions.
Julie showed the houseguests video of the performance in the HOH competition. Lane said the competition was difficult, and he was ready to drop when he started. Kathy was asked about not apologizing to Rachel, and Kathy explained that Rachel picked Kathy to lose, so Kathy was celebrating because she won. Julie asks who is the most underestimated player in the game. Matt picks Kathy, Lane, Britney, Enzo, Ragan pick Ragan. Hayden picks Britney. Rachel says everyone is underestimated, and Brendon picks Britney.
Brendon's ex-fioncee, Candice, is interviewed. She was engaged for six months but knew Brendon for two years. She broke up with him because he kept on trying to change her, jsut as he is doing with Rachel. Also, the family said that Brendon is too emotional. Candice's family is glad that she didn't marry Brendon. We saw how Rachel wanted Brendon to go to Vegas, and he said that he wouldn't. Candice tells Rachel to prepare to be emotionally drained by Brendon. Candice thinks that Rachel is blinded by Brendon's good looks, but she hopes that Rachel comes to her senses. It's time for the vote. Rachel said that she wanted the BB experience so bad, and she's glad that she made it to the half-way point. And she said that she loves Brendon. Brendon then says that Matt probably got $10,000. He tells everyone that they are fake and insincere. Brendon says that he feel completely in love with Rachel. Brendon also says he understands the witch hunts because everyone is out to get him for no good reason. Now it's time for the vote. Live feed people know that Rachel is on her way out. Enzo goes first and evicts Rachel. Britney evicted Rachel. Kathy evicted Rachel. Ragan said that Brendon got the witch part right, and that he was voted to evict Rachel. Rachel was out. Lane and Hayden also vote to evict Rachel. The vote is 6-0. Commercial break before the big breakup!
Time for the announcement. The vote is 6-0, and when Rachel learns that she is out, she walks past everyone, hugs and whispers to Brendon, and then sh leaves. Brendon isin the house, taking off his pants and telling everyone that they better be ready. Julie asks Rachel if she is shocked. Rachel says no because the houseguests were afraid of her as a competitor. Rachel said that the houseguests got her, and she has nothing else bad to say. Rachel said that she had a great experience. Rachel thinks that they thought they would have an easier time with Brendon. Then she admitted that she was shocked. Enzo said that he wished Rachel was on his team. Hayden said that if what she has is real with Brendon, it will be worth more than $500,000. Brendon says that he will take revenge upon all those who were mean to her. Losers! Julie did tell Rachel that it may not be the last she sees of the BB house. I hope not!
From the glimpse of the backyard, it does look like another endurance competition. When Julie comes back, we find out about the competition. The houseguests have to untangle their way through a rope maze. Then they started to drop feathers on them to make things more unclear. Brendon is throwing himself all over the place and is covered in mud before you know it. When the show comes back from the break, things look pretty even with Brendon maybe slightly behind Lane who looks like he is in the lead. More later from the live feeds.
Wednesday, August 11, 2010 -- Evening
Return of Jeff and Jordan
It's Veto time on the Big Brother show. I am going to be so glad when Brendon and Rachel are gone because they are the most annoying people on the show. I am really looking forward to the return of Jeff and Jordan for the POV competition.
The show started with the nomination of Rachel and Brendon. Rachel wanted the houseguests to bring it on, and guess what? It was brought on! Everyone in the house is glad to get Brendon and Rachel out because they are so annoying. Rachel was crying in the DR about how there are six guys in the house; how did she get to be the bad guy? Because she said to bring it on, maybe? Rachel and Brendon go into the kitchen after the nomination and call Matta a midget. Rachel keeps on giving Kathy and Matt dirty looks, as she stabs at some salad. Britney asks Rachel if she's angry. Rachel claims, angrily, that she isn't. I love how Matt calls if "Fatal Attraction." Rachel claims that for "some reason" people have wanted them to go home. I think that it's because she is a bitch. Rachel tells Brendon that if they get split up, she can't stay there alone. Rachel starts crying, and that makes Brendon jump her bones. Then we see Rachel crying in the DR saying that she doesn't understand why she is nominated. It is so damned annyong. Gosh, do I hate the girl!
The houseguests find a bowling lane outside. They know that is it there so they can practice for the POV. So they all start practicing. Ragan asks Rachel if she wants to practice, but then she starts crying and goes into one of the bedrooms to cry. Brendon, of course, jumps into the bed to comfort her. Rachel said that she feels like road kill. We can only hope that she is road kill tomorrow. I really, really hate the girl. Brnedon talks Rachel into going outside to try the bowling thing. She finally does, and then Rachel and Brendon stay out until almost 5 a.m. practicing. Rachel said that it's her house, and no one is going to take her down or get her out of the house.
Brendon annoyed everyone by telling them to just hand over the POV before the competition. Ragan plays in the veto because he had the veto ticket last time. Matt picks Kathy; Rachel picks Britney; and Brendon gets houseguest choice, and took Enzo because he thought Enzo wouldn't win. Rachel keeps on saying it is i her house and she has to win. The houseguests are waiting for the POV when the doorbell rings, and it's Jeff and Jordan. The houseguests were so excited to see them. Enzo said that Jeff would be a member of the Brigade, probably called Pretty Boy. Jordan called Enzo Meow Meow. The good news? Jeff and Jordan are still a couple. They are so adorable. I think I like them so much because they have such chemistry, and Jordan is such a nice person. Jeff and Jordan never were picked to host a competition last year, as Jordan said, no one liked them. There are 10 pins. Knock a pin down, and another is in the place. The goal is to knock down as many pins in 45 seconds. The person then picks who will challenge him. The person who has the most knocked down in the 45 seconds moves on. Rachel is the first bowler in round one. While Rachel was bowling, Brendon as cheering her one. Rachel got six pins, but didn't look that happy. Rachel picked Kathy. As Kathy said in the DR, bring it on. Kathy got seven pins down, and cheered. Then Rachel started crying and said that Kathy was such a low person for cheering her out. As Enzo said, Rachel is such a cry-baby when she loses. Waa-Waa! Then Brendon has to bowl, and Rachel cheers him on. Saying "you got it Baby, I believe in you." Rachel starts telling Brendon to go fast. Brendon throws one at the end, and almost hit Jeff and Jordan. As Britney said, Brendon has the worst sportsmanship. Brendon knocks down three pins in 45 seconds. Rachel says in the DR that she thought a monkey should be able to knock down four pins in 45 seconds. Brendon challenged Britney. As Britney said, she felt pressure to knock out Brendon. Britney got five pins in 45 seconds and eliminated Brendon. Brendon and Rachel start their poor loser act on the loser bench. As Rachel said, Brendon disappointed her. Lane said that Brendon acted like the girl and Rachel was the man trying to console him. Enzo, or Meow Meow as Jeff said, was next up. Matt said that since Rachel and Brendon were out, people were just having fun like they were at Chuck E. Cheese. Enzo knocked out 8 pins, Britney knocked out Enzo with 8. Then Ragan had his chance. He got 7 and challenged Matt who got 9. Kathy is up next. She gets a 7, and Britney gets 8. Then it's down to Britney and Matt. Brendon thought everyone was so insensitive by being jovial while Rachel or Brendon are down. Matt knocks down 7, but Britney knocks down 10 pins with time to spare. Britney wanted to show that she was a competitor. Britney wanted to show she was a competitor. Britney said that she couldn't be happier to hold the POV.
Jeff and Jordan talked about their future plans. Jeff is doing the Around the World Free show on cbs.com. Jordan is going to school. As Jordan said though, she told Jeff what sort of ring she likes. They are such a cute couple. I really, really like Jeff and Jordan.
Meanwhile Bitter Rachel said that she is going to confront Kathy about disrespecting her in the competition by cheering over winning. Rachel is a psycho bitch. Rachel gets a sore puss on her face and asks to talk to Kathy. Rachel then lectures Kathy about how classless Kathy is by cheering when she wins. Kathy refuses to talk to Rachel and leaves the room. Kathy said that Rachel picked her because Rachel thought that Kathy would lose. Kathy said she was excited to win and she cheered. Kathy said that she won't apologize, and she won't listen to Rachel. Rachel said that she is going to make Kathy apologize. THen Rachel said that Kathy has no integrity. Rachel continues to confront Kathy. Kathy says, "drop it. I'm not going to apologize. I won." Kathy said that she is going to going to punch Rachel if she keeps on following her. Hayden tells Rachel that Kathy just did what Rachel did in every competition. Hayden said that Kathy has every right to cheer because she won.
Time for Ragan to pick a saboteur trick. He didn't want to hide Rachel's hair extensions because he would have to touch it. Then he didn't like the smelly cheese bit, because if he hid it under Brendon and Rachel's bed, no one would notice. But Ragan did decide to make trouble between Brendon and Rachel. So the Saboteur had a video clip that told Rachel that Brendon was throwing competitions to advance his game. The good thing is that everyone thinks that Rachel is the Saboteur and advancing his game. Ragan was happy for that. Rachel asks to talk to Britney and asks Rachel to use the POV on her. Rachel said that she would give Britney $5000 and would be on Rachel's side. Britney said that she can't use the POV on Rachel because it would be bad for Britney. Britney also said that it won't matter if she used the POV because one of them is going home. Rachel wanted Kathy to go up and thought people would vote out Kathy. Brendon really wants Rachel to stay in the house, and said that he has to do something to make himself look bad so Rachel could stay in the house. Then we have to see Rachel with her crocodile tears, and Brendon with his fake tears Brendon tells Rachel that he loves her very much, and thinks that she would be a better fighter than Brendon.
Time for the POV meeting. Brendon thinks he has to do something drastic in the POV meeting to take the bullet for Rachel. Brendon tells Rachel to go first. Rachel tells Britney that Britney is her friend. Rachel offers Britney $5000. Brendon in his speech calls Britney a brat and selfish. Rachel has this fish look on her face. Very unattractive. Brendon tells the group that Britney wanted to put up Ragan and Matt. Britney says that she is a spoiled brat just like Brendon is a class act. Britney said that Brendon is a vile, classless person. Brendon thinks the target is now on his back. On the live feeds, the houseguests are letting Rachel think she is staying and they are against Brendon. But they are voting out Rachel. Rachel ends the show with her usual crying routine, and assurance that she will win HOH and vote them all out. This is Rachel's house. Yeah, right!
Sunday, August 8, 2010 -- Evening
The Big Brother show this evening started with HOH competition. Too bad, it wasn't that much of an endurance match. Julie let the houseguests know that the first person off the paint can was going to be a Have Not this week. Matt said that the Brigade needed to win this week so keep themselves safe. Hayden wanted to win HOH, but he's not that much of a competitor. Rachel was glad to see Kristen go, and Kathy said that she knew she was the only vote for Kristen, and said that she didn't care if that put her on the block becaus eyo have to do what's right. Ragan started to complain about his arms hurting after eight minutes on the bucket, and he whispers to Matt, "what should I do?" To which Matt replies, "I don't know." Enzo and Britney hated getting hit in the face with the paint brush. Kathy said that she's going to take the Have Not. Enzo and Britney mocked Kathy for making a "deal" that she would be the Have Not for the week. Kathy said that she just wants people to think she's weak. Lane said that all the stress was on his forearms and biceps, and his arms started to hurt. Brnedon said the same thing. Matt, Lane, and Britney started to mock Rachel with her cheerleading for Brendon. She kept on saying, "you got it Brendon," "you're the best." Enzo drops out, and Matt comments on how Enzo is a slacker and does put in any effort. Britney lets Matt know that Brendon is struggling, and Matt starts saying he could be up there all evening. Everyone is praying for Brendon to fall.
Brendon looks like such a baby on the paint can. Then he just leaps off the paint can. Rachel said that she is so frustrated with Brendon because when he needed her to compete, she came through. But she couldn't count on Brendon. Ragan says he is having a Stevie Wonder moment as his goggles get covered with paint. As Rachel is consoling Brendon, she says, just win the POV. Brendon said that he didn't think Rachel was sincere when she said that it was okay that he was out of the competition. Well, it's because she wasn't sincere. Rachel said that she was hoping for Ragan or Britney to win since she thought they wouldn't put her up. Then Lane fell off. Britney was feeling sore, and as she said, she didn't want to put up Rachel and Brendon so she fell off. Hayden fell off after around 48 minutes. So it came down again to Ragan and Matt. Matt said in DR that he is gettting tired of the Brains in the Brigade having to do well in all the physical competitions. Ragan said that he could try to win HOH and get blood on his hands, or he could drop, and let Matt get the blood. Then Ragan dropped off after 1 hour and 10 minutes. Ragan said that he wants to lay low and hope for the best. Rachel wants to know how the skinniest dude in the house keeps on winning endurance competitions. Matt also said that others in the Brigade have to start pulling their weight because he can only win every other week. Hayden said that Matt better do the right thing and put out Rachel and Brendon or he is out of the Brigade. Matt, Hayden, and Enzo go into the storage room to talk. Hayden said that he can't wait to see Brendon and Rachel crying all week like little babies. Enzo hopes that Matt just sticks to the plan of putting up Brendon and Rachel. Meanwhile, Rachel is acting all upset and tries to act like she isn't upset with Brendon when it is so obvious she is really mad at him. Brendon kisses her and tries to talk to her. Rachel said that Brendon doesn't understand that him not winning puts a bigger target on her back than on his. Brendon tries to tell Rachel to be positive, but it is hilarious to see her so upset for getting payback.
It's time for the HOH room, and Britney starts squealing really loud about how wonderful it is. As she said, she mocks Rachel so much, and Rachel isn't bright enough to figure it out. Everyone sneaks out to leave Matt trapped with Brendon and Rachel. Later, after Matt was locked out of the HOH room, he finds the Pandora Box in the HOH room. Matt gets to decide about whether to open the Pandora Box. Matt can get the diamond POV if he opens the box. Matt said that he has to figure out whether he should do this because depending on how he explains it. Matt takes the diamond POV. With the diamond POV, he has two weeks to use the POV to save himself or someone else from the block, and to name the replacement. Matt hids the POV in his suitcase, and then takes out his dollar card to say that he opened Pandora's Box for $1. Brendon said that the first thought he had was that if something good happened to him, something bad would happen to Brendon. People didn't seem to know whether to believe that Matt only got $1. Brendon said that Matt is acting shifty and that he won something he is not telling the house. Matt admits in DR that he doesn't think anyone bought the $1 deal. Brendon starts to talk to Rachel about using the $5000 to buy her way out. Ragan tells Hayden and Kathy that the way the Pandora Box works is that soemone gets something good and someone gets something bad. Then Ragan goes to the DR, and finds that he was selected to be the new Saboteur. He learns that if he lasts two weeks without getting caught, he gets $20,000. Ragan waffles a ton over it, not knowing what to make of it. Then because he didn't want ot let America down, he said that he would be a new Saboteur. American gets to send in sabotage suggestions. Dumb!
Rachel talks to Matt in front of Ragan. Rachel tells Matt that if Matt puts them both up, one of them will win the POV. Ragan challenges Rachel about insinuating that Ragan had an alliance with Matt. Ragan really attacks Rachel over the comment, and Ragan says that Rachel is getting rude to him by raising her voice. Brendon comes in, and he seems to say that Ragan and Matt are a pair too, as much of a pair as Brendon and Rachel are without the kissing. Rachel then asks Brendon and Ragan to leave the the conversation with Matt. Matt tells Rachel that she will have to figure out her issue with Ragan some other time. Then Brendon says in the kitchen that two of them were attacking Rachel. Ragan challenges him on that because as he said, Brendon wasn't there. Rachel goes out to the kitchen and brings Brendon into the room with Matt. Rachel said that it would not make sense to get rid of two strong people that would be on Matt's side. Rachel tries to tell Matt that if they are put up, and Rachel leaves, people won't be after Brendon, they will be after Matt. Later, the Saboteur video plays to the houseguests. Matt is thanked for opening Pandora's Box and unleashing the Saboteur. The houseguests seem shocked. They all say that if someone was offered the role of the Saboteur, that person shouldn't have taken it. Losers!
Finally time for the nominations. Rachel calls Matt a pansy in the DR because he is taking the easy way out. Brendon then says that Matt is dishonest because he's going to put up Brnedon and Rachel. Matt admits that it's now time for him to take out the trash. Matt pulls out Kathy's key first. Then out comes the keys of Ragan, Britney, Lane, Enzo, and Hayden. Matt says that he put up Rachel and Brendon because it's not personal. As Matt says, they are a pair, and they have won HOH and POV competitions, so as scientists, they can figure out the stats. Rachel starts crying and saying she feels like a lost puppy, and will need another injection of Botox because she now has so many wrinkles.
Saturday, August 7, 2010 -- Evening
Payback is a Bitch
Matt put up Brendon and Rachel for eviction, like that was any surprise. You have to wonder what the game would be like now if Matt had put up Brendon and Rachel instead of Andrew and Kathy. The POV competitino was today, and Britney won. I doubt that she will be using the POV. From the live feeds, the Pandora Box was setup in the HOH room, Matt opened it, and obviously Ragan accepted the challenge to be the saboteur because the houseguests were talking about the video showing the saboteur.
Thursday, August 5, 2010 -- Later Evening
Bunch of Losers
So Kathy and Enzo were the first ones to fall from the paint can. Then loser Brendon dropped. That guy can't win crap. Then Britney, Lane, and Hayden fell off, leaving, as usual, Ragan and Matt. Ragan, being another loser, gave up the HOH to Matt. So he's HOH yet again, and Brendon is whining about how he is going home. Boy, at this point, I'd love to send them all home.
Thursday, August 5, 2010 -- Evening
It's time to see Kristen leave the Big Brother house. After not being in the CBS show for several episodes, she has been featured lately. All I have to say is that I'm not a fan of her, Rachel, or Kathy. As the show started, Rachel was holding Brendon's arm around her. Disgusting!
We started the show with the Britney POV meeting. Hayden said that he was shocked that something went wrong. Britney knew that Hayden and Kristen were mad at her. Rachel admitted that she told Britney she would put up Lane because Rachel didn't want Britney to use the veto, and Rachel wants Kristen out of the house. Kristen cries because of the separation of someone she created a bond with. Hayden went out to Brendon and Rachel, and Brnedon said that he was voting to keep Hayden. So Hayden felt safe. Britney told Enzo about Rachel threatening to put up Lane. Enzo said that he was gunning for Rachel and Brendon. Britney then goes to talk to Hayden and Kristen. Britney tells Kristen and Hayden that Rachel was going to put up Lane. Kristen is upset because she had the perfect plan to put up Kathy, who is supposedly Kristen's friend in the house. I think Kristen forgot that she wasn't HOH or the veto holder. Kristen cries because she won't have much more time to spend with Hayden. Kristen says it is really hard because she doesn't want to go home, and would love to fight for herself, but it's really hard to campaign against Hayden. Hayden said that he won't feel bad about anything Kristen does. Kristen hates that she has to wear the Hippy-tard and wig, and is probably going to be evicted in it.
Brendon and Rachel are in the backyard, so Britney, Ragan, and Matt start making fun of Rachel and wearing her hair extensions. Rachel comes walking up, and then comes walking into the HOH. Rachel thought it was hilarious that Britney and Matt were making fun of her. Britney thought it was hilarious how clueless Rachel is. Rachel says that she is okay with people making fun of her because it's the highest form or flattery. It was hilarious seeing Britney prancing around, saying "floaters, get a life vest."
Meanwhile, Kristen starts to realize that Hayden must be okay with her campaigning against him because Hayden must have an alliance. Kristen talks to Ragan about keeping her because if she is voted out, Ragan would be left in the house with the alpha males who would go after Ragan. Ragan says in DR that Hayden may be part of an all-male alliance. Kristen then goes to talk to Britney about why Britney should vote for her. As Kristen says, Britney is screwed because she will be against an alliance of guys. I don't know how successful Kristen is with her campaign. Kristen then talks to Brendon about Hayden staying in the house with an alliance with Lane and Enzo. Kristen tries to sell breaking up a possible alliance and keeping a weaker player. Kristen tries to tell Brendon that she would hurt him less.
Julie talks to the houseguests. Julie asks Hayden about solitary confinement. And then Julie tells Kristen that she is better in the Hippy-tard than Jenn was in the red leotard. Then Julie showed Enzo falling on top of Hayden in a very intimate way that lead to a lot of jokes. Britney said that Ragan is probably the worst houseguest because he is so gassy, and it smells so bad. Julie was totally flustered by the fart talk. Julie shows clips of Kristen and Hayden making out. Then we go to Tempe, Arizona to see Hayden's mom who is shocked by Hayden's showmance. As his mom says, Kristen isn't sincere and has derailed Hayden's game. Then we hear Kristen's friends talking about how shocked they are at Kristen making out with Hayden because Kristen has a boyfriend in Philadelphia. Then we hear from Steve who said that he thought that he was Kristen's boyfriend going into the house. Steve feels betrayed by Kristen. He says that the relationship with Kristen is over.
Julie talks to Rachel in the HOH room. Rachel said that she and Brendon hope to pull Britney into their alliance. Rachel said that she is going after people that she feels are after her, and so far, that has been Monet and Kristen. Julie asks about the relationship with Brendon. Julie comments on the fights that the pair has had. Rachel says that in a real relationship people have arguments and butt heads.
Both Hayden and Kristen call out people as cowards for putting them up. Time for the vote. Enzo evicts Kristen, Kathy evicts Hayden, and then Matt, Lane, Ragan, Brendon, and Britney vote to evict Kristen. Kristen is out by a vote of 6-1. Brendon says that he votes to evict Kristen for Andrew. Kristen has to go out to the live audience in the Hippy-tard and wig. Kristen hugs eveyrone but Brendon and Rachel. After the vote, Rachel gives Hayden a hug. Kristen's picture goes black and white as everyone watches. Kristen said that it was hard to campaign against Hayden. Julie comments on how people wanted to vote for her, but they were afraid that Hayden might take it out on them if they voted for her. Rachel calls Britney a bitch because Kristen was talking to Brendon behind her back. Rachel also called Kristen a ho. Hayden tells Kristen that he is in an alliance with Matt, Enzo, and Lane, called the Brigade. But Hayden said that he would have taken her over the alliance. Wonder what the guys would think if they knew that? Kristen said that she is shocked, but not shocked. Julie asks about the boyfriend back home. Kristen says she has to think about it, not knowing that the boyfriend has already dumped her ass.
Julie tells us that this HOH will be the most powerful HOH in the game. We have the return of Pandora's Box. It seems that America's vote was for Ragan to be the new Saboteur with Enzo coming in second. But the HOH has to open Pandora's box to unleash the Saboteur. The last houseguest standing on the ledge of a giant paint can is going to be HOH. The houseguests are on a narrow ledge facing out from the can. They have a rail to hold onto, and they are getting sprayed with paint. The first person to fall off will be the one and only Have Not this week. Jeff and Jordan are going to be stopping by the house for a visit this week. Back to the HOH competition, where the houseguests are being hit by a big paint filled brush. More on who is HOH from the live feeds.
Wednesday, August 4, 2010 -- Evening
The show this evening started again with Andrew's speech and Rachel's HOH win. Then we heard Rachel's nomination speech. It will be so funny when that girl gets her comeuppance. Hayden says in DR that no one likes Rachel or Brendon, and that everytime he talks to her, Hayden throws up a bit in the back of his mouth. Brendon lectures Rachel about her nomination comments because the "bring it on" just went over the wrong way. Brendon tells her that she should apologize, but Rachel says no. Brendon explains that people will take them on. Rachel is really pissed with Brendon, and she stomps out of the HOH room. Hayden and Kristen are talking about how they need to win. Rachel comes into the room and apologises for her comment, and said that it wasn't meant personally. Hayden says that if he wins, he'll put up Brendon and Rachel. When Rachel goes back upstairs, she tells Brendon that he should be on her team, and supporting her, and feeling bad for her because she had to put Hayden and Kristen up. Rachel explains to Brendon that it's BB and she is not being the bully that Brendon called her. Rachel said that they need to be done fighting because if he doesn't start acting differently, they won't have a relationship. Brendon is so whipped. I really don't understand that relationship.
Time to pick for the veto competition. Rachel picks Britney. Rachel likes that because she thinks Britney will keep things the same. Hayden picks Ragan, but thinks Ragan won't use the veto. Kristen picks Enzo. Rachel picks Brendon to be the host for the show. The competition is a pinball competition. It's one where the players play a pinball game, and the lowest scoring person is eliminated from a round, but gets to pick a prize. It's the same as in other years. You could pick a box with the veto in the first round, but some who comes out of the game after you, can take your prize. In the first round, Hayden, Rachel, Ragan, and Enzo get a perfect score, and Kristen has the lowest score, and she's out. Kristen picked a hat that contained the power of veto. She thought it was bittersweet because she knew later people would take it. Ragan had the low score in the second round, and he picked a veto ticket. That allows him to compete in the next veto competition. Britney said that the tension was so high that no one was speaking to anyone else. Enzo had the lowest score in round three and got a 3-D flat screen TV. In round four, Britney and Hayden got a perfect shot. Rachel had the lowest score, and she was out. She had a second chance ticket, and instead of taking the veto, she put Ragan back in the game. Ragan had the lowest score in round five. He got a $5000 prize. He could keep it or give it to someone else. Ragan traded the $5000 to get the veto ticket. Rachel didn't want to take it. it was funny because Lane thought they were stupid to not take money because this is a game. Kristen was thinking she might get to keep the veto. It was down to Britney and Hayden. Britney got a perfect shot. Hayden had to make a perfect shot to continue, but he got a 5. Hayden picked the Hippy-tard. It's the rehash of Jenn's red leotard from a few seasons ago. Britney picked 24 hours of solitary confinement. He switched with Kristen and took the veto. Britney traded with Hayden for the POV. Hayden gets 24 hours of solitary confinement. Kristen instantly hugs Hayden and starts to cry. Kristen doesn't want to fight against Hayden. Hayden thinks that he can be screwed this week. They put Hayden in the Have Not room for his solitary confinement, but people can talk to him through the door.
The Hippy-tard is tie-dyed, and it comes with a red Orphan Annie wig. Later, Kristen goes to the Have Not door to talk to Hayden. Kristen said that she's going to try not to go hom, but that means Hayden will go home. Hayden and Kristen toucn fingers under the door. Kristen said that she didn't think she would ever shed one tear in the house. You hear that so much from people. Losers!
Enzo and Lane talk about getting the Animal back from 24 hour solitary confinement. They make jokes about how long Hayden's hair must be now. The houseguests all tick down the time, and run into the Have Not room when the time is out. Hayden said serveral times that Kristen looks good in the Hippy-tard. It's time for The Other Guys movie. Enzo said that he had Hayden were chaperones to Brendon and Rachel. The others are outside complaining about having to hear movie quotes for two weeks that they won't get. Brendon was just happy to have his first movie date with Rachel. Hayden tells Britney that it would be smart to use the POV. Britney said that she would use the POV if Kathy goes up, because then Kathy would go home. Britney tells Hayden that she would do it. Hayden and Kristen go to the HOH room. Hayden says he only has Kristen in the house. Hayden said that Brendon and Rachel will need someone on their side, and they should taking the deal. Rachel said that she wanted to know the deal that Hayden made with Britney. Hayden said that he told Britney that he wouldn't put her up. Rachel said that would mean you would put the other guys up that you like. Hayden and Kristen are really pushing putting Kathy up. That should send off warning bells to Rachel and Brendon. Hayden then goes and tells Britney that Rachel is buying it. Hayden said that when he wins HOH next week and puts them up, Rachel and Brendon will be furious. HA!
Britney tells Rachel that Hayden made her an offer. Rachel said that who else would go up against Kristen. Rachel tells Kristen that she might want to put up Lane. Britney said that she doesn't want Lane to go up. Britney also tells Rachel that if she uses the POV, she would want the decision to be made with her and Rachel. Britney said that both alliances (Hayden/Kristen or Rachel/Brendon) would work for her. It's time for the veto meeting. From the live feeds, we know that Britney couldn't tell Hayden that Rachel was going to put up Lane instead of Kathy. Hayden tells Britney in his speech that it would help her to take him off. Kristen says she's only on the block because she got thrown under the bus. Britney says that she decided not to use the POV. Hayden said it was a slap in the face because either he or Kristen is going home. Britney didn't want Lane to go up, so she couldn't use the POV. Kristen cries about how she has to go against the person she loves the most in the game. Kristen wants to be the one to send Rachel home. Hard to do when you'll be outside of the house tomorrow, Kristen.

The S**t Hits the Fan
This evening's Big Brother show started off a recap of Andrew's farewell speech. Kristen admitted that it was the worst thing that could have happened. Kristen had her shocked face. As Lane said, he thought Hayden and Kristen were cousins, but was surprised to find out they are kissing cousins. Hayden tried to pretend that Andrew was lying. Andrew told them that he was up in the room when they were making out. Andrew said that Kristen was manipulating everyone. It seems that throughout the voting thing, Hayden and Kristen were denying it and lying their asses off. Rachel thought that outing Hayden and Kristen was a good thing because it took the pressure off of Rachel and Brendon.
We had a recap of Rachel winning HOH. As Rachel said, if she did't pull it off, they would have gone home. Right after the HOH competition, Rachel said that she heard Hayden and Kristen making out in the same room as her. As Brendon said, they were busted and should just admit it. Ragan said that he has been waiting for people to fight because it takes the eye off of him. Lane said that he just loved having a front row seat to the fight. Kristen tried to take the holier than thou road while she is lying her ass off. Kristen said that she is going to stay in the house and get rid of Rachel, while Rachel calls Kristen a floater. Kristen says that Rachel is jealous of her. Then Rachel calls out Kathy who was hugging Hayden and Kristen. I loved Britney's comment that the irony of the two girls fighting in a fake boxing rink wasn't lost on her.
Matt said that it couldn't be better for him than to have the two girls fighting. Kristen keeps on calling Rachel a liar and vice versa. Then we saw Rachel jump on Brendon for her usual slutty, kissing scene. Rachel looks like a psycho wench and says she wants to be a bitch to everyone. Matt, Enzo, and Lane talk about getting Kristen out of the game so Hayden can get his head back into the game. Rachel starts crying to Hayden about how Kristen wanted to throw her under the bus. Hayden said that he apologized to Rachel just to keep himself in the house. Hayden claims that he wasn't making out with Kristen, even though Rachel was in the same room, pretending to be asleep.
Then Hayden and Kristen talk, and Hayden says that he reeled Kristen in. Rachel goes to apologize to Kristen, and Kristen said that she didn't accept it because Rachel was lying. Enzo and Lane got to talk to Hayden, and Hayden tells the guys that both Rachel and Kristen are crazy. Enzo said that he doesn't care of Hayden gets some on the side, but the Brigade has to come first.
it's time to see the HOH room, and Kristen said that she was nauseated by Rachel and didn't want to see the HOH room. Enzo said that there goes the brown nosing and kissing up since Rachel is the HOH. Enzo aws like "Spice Girls, OOOHHHH!!" Hayden said that he wanted to commmit suicide the whole time becuse he didn't want to be there. Then Kathy goes to talk to Kristen and said that she wouldn't back down from being Kristen's friend. Kristen insists that she is not going onywhere. As she looks at Kathy with psyho eyes, Kristen insists that it is on.
Rachel is in a cop outfit and calls out the houseguests into the living room. Will Ferrel and Marky Mark come on the screen to tell the houseguests that there is a luxury competition that will let some see their new movie The Other Guys. The competition is some sort of thing whre a team of players have to complete a circuit of a track and the fastest wins. Matt, Lane, and Britney were first. Ragan, Kristen, and Kathy are in the same car, and Kristen said that she's going to rub her win in Rachel's face. Ragan was hilarious. He said that competing with Kathy is like Weekend at Bernie's and carrying a dead body around. Hayden, Enzo, and Brendon werein a car together, and they were like maniacs on the track. It was funny because Enzo landed on top of Hayden at the end. Matt's team had 52 seconds. Kristen had 2 min and 18 seconds. Bunch of losers. Hayden's team had 47 seconds. So Rachel, Brendon, Enzo, and Hayden got to go to see the movie together. (Rachel got to go because she was HOH.
Rachel and Britney were bonding in a bubble bath, and Rachel said that people like Kirsten drive her crazy because Kristen does nothing. Britney said that the last thing she wanted was to be in a bathtub with Rachel, but she wants to stay in the house, so "bubble up." Rachel and Kristen were making fun of Kristen. As Rachel said, she can't stand Kristen, and Kristen is going to go home.
Kathy talks to Rachel and Brendon, and Kathy claims that she isn't a floater. As Rachel said, if you play both sides of the house, you are a floater. Meanwhile Kathy just keeps talking to keep herself safe. Hayden talks to Kristen in the storage roon, and Kristen said that she won't kiss ass. Hayden said that he wants Kristen to stay in the house, but she has to do some things to stay in the house. So Kristen goes up to talk to Rachel and Brendon. Kristen claims that she was never one of the people who was going after Brendon and Rachel. Rachel keeps on saying that's what Kristen said. Kristen said that she can't stand Rachel, but she is just trying to stay off the block. Rachel tells Kristen that she is an emotional person. Kristen then tries to say that she is a logical person. Brendon goes up to talk to Rachel, and can't believe Rachel when she says that she is thinking of not putting up Kristen. As Brendon says in the DR, "what are you thinking?"
Finally, it's time for Rachel to make her nominations. Rachel claims "this game is so hard." Brendon's key, of course, comes out first, then Britney, Ragan, Lane, Enzo, Matt, and finally Kathy. As we already know, Hayden and Kristen go up on the block. Rachel then says that she nominated them because she hasn't seen either of them fighting, and she then tells Kristen to bring it on. Hayden said that he will do anything to stay in the game. In DR, Lane tells Hayden to just lose Kristen. Brendon wants Rachel to stop the power trip because it puts a huge target on their back.

Britney Wins POV
Britney won the POV competition today. It seems that Rachel and Britney were talking before the POV that if Kristen came off the block, Rachel would put up Kathy. I find that I'm really losing interest in this gang. There's not a single person that I like in the house. In fact, I would say that the majority of them annoy me. Those that don't annoy me are just there, as far as I'm concerned. It will be interesting to see what happens to the ratings with this bunch.

Rachel Does the Obvious
Rachel nominated Hayden and Kristen for eviction today. That was the sort of move that Matt should have made last week. Unfortunately, he didn't, and we are forced to see more of Rachel's antics.
Thursday, July 29, 2010 -- Evening
Eviction night on Big Brother. It's fairly obvious from the live feeds that Andrew will be the one going home. His POV speech did not go over well; it made everyone think that he has an alliance with Brendon. The brainiac, Matt, is an idiot.
Tonight's show started with a recap of Matt's stupid move. You want to get rid of Brendon and Rachel, nominate them both. Don't nominate floaters! I really can't stand Kathy either. She looks extremely crazy with lunatic eyes. Britney made fun of Rachel's eye rolls. Rachel commented that she had to be in a house full of haters. Andrew thought he had to make a power move by saying that he was going for the obvious couple in the house. Brendon goes to talk to Rachel who can't seem to understand game play. Rachel got really pissed when she found out that Brendon knew what Andrew was going to do. Meanwhile up in the HOH room, Ragan comments on Andrew concocting the whole thing. The house thought Rachel's reaction was fake, when in actually it was true. Matt tells Andrew that people were willing to vote for him prior to the veto meeting. But after the meeting, everyone was against Andrew because they thought he was in league with Brendon. Rachel wants to get rid of Andrew because she thinks that Brendon's plan to keep an ally in the house instead of voting him out is stupid. The girl is an incredible idiot. Brendon feels like the wind is out of his sails when Rachel starts doubting him over the whole Andrew thing. Up in the HOH room, Kathy is telling Ragan that she needs the money because she has cancer, or had cancer, and thinks she is going to get cancer again. Ragan buys the whole sob story and says that Kathy is a fighter. Ragan said that after talking to loser Kathy, he is reconceptualizing what a fighter is. Meaning a fighter is a loser like Kathy who is lazy and does nothing. Andrew is getting angry because Kristen, who used to be his friend, is bonding with Kathy, and treating Andrew like a leper. Andrew said that it was very hard to be in the house when you have no one to talk to (and we see Andrew crying). Andrew goes into the bathroom and tells Kristen to stop playing him like a fiddle in front of Kathy. Kristen says that Andrww needs to talk to her, then Kristen starts yelling at Andrew that Kathy is the only one Kristen has, and Andrew says what about him. Kristen tells Andrew that he is digging his own grave, and he tells her that she is digging her own grave. Andrew leaves, just as Rachel comes into the room. Matt, Enzo, and Hayden are talking about keeping Andrew because he has a bigger target on his back. Enzo wants to keep Andrew because it will cause friction in the house.
Julie asks Rachel how shocked she is about not being on the block. Rachel says she is really shocked. I cannot stand Rachel. Lane said that he misses spotlight, where you shoot something when you see the light reflect. Julie makes fun of Enxo's accent. Then she tells everyone that there will be no slop next week.
There was a segment on Matt, and we got to see his wife. She has really ugly teeth. Maybe he needs to win the money to get some orthodontia done for her. Matt's wife purposefully put something in the letter to him to get people to believe him. When Julie talked to Matt, he said that he thought that his wife supported him. Also, Matt said that he suspected that Hayden had something going on with Kristen, but that Matt would stay true to him. Losers!
Kathy said that she loves everyone, and that she has loyalty, religion, and integrity. Andrew outs Hayden and Kristen. Andrew went through everyone telling them what is going on behind their back. Andrew said that it was all true and that Hayden and Kristen were making out while Andrew was in the room. Andrew also tells Hayden that he needs to get out of the relationship. All vote to evict Andrew, which I think was really stupid of a good majority of them. He spoke the truth, but those losers who are in the house are too stupid to believe it. Hopefully, some of the things Andrew said will sink in to the rest of them. Doubtful because the people are so danged stupid. Ragan commented that he voted to institutionalize Andrew. Ragan is so dumb for buying Kathy and Matt's sob stories.
As Andrew leaves, he tells everyone Mazel Tov. Then Andrew leaves. I really likes Andrew. Julie told Andrew that was the best speech ever. Julie said that Andrew should have blackmailed Hayden and Kristen. Andrew said that maybe they will start thinking for themselves. Julie asks Andrew if he regrets his move telling Brendon he was after him. Andrew said that he really likes Hayden and thinks he is a great guy and needs to go away from Kristen. Julie tells Andrew that the disease Matt said his wife had was a real disease, but she doesn't have it. The good-bye messages were positive. It seemed that everyone like Andrew, except for Kristen, who is a wench.
Time for the HOH. I hope it's someone who puts up Rachel and evicts her. The game is one based on previous competitions and the houseguests go up against each other in twos. The answer is HOH, Have or Have Not, and POV. Hayden knocks off Britney, and picks Brendon and Rachel to face off. Rachel wins and picks Kristen and Hayden. Hayden gets eliminated. Kristen picks Rachel and Kathy, and Kathy gets the wrong answer and is out. Then Kristen and Enzo are up. Enzo is eliminated. Then it's Rachel and Ragan. Ragan is eliminated. Only Kristen and Lane are left as twosomes, and Kristen is eliminated. HOH is up to Lane and Rachel. Rachel got the last question, and got HOH for the second time in the season. I really hate Rachel.
There's a new saboteur. America gets to chose the houseguest. We get to vote for a saboteur, and the houseguest will get $20,000 if they make it past two weeks undetected.

Being a Pawn Is Stupid
Time for the POV edition of Big Brother. Rachel couldn't believe that she and Brendon weren't nominated. Hayden said that the Brigade was hoping for a power move, but then goes for Kathy and Andrew. Matt agrees that everyone thinks that Matt is crazy, but that Matt has to do what's good for him so he can win the prize. Andrew starts to pack his clothes muttering over and over how stupid it is. Rachel and Brendon were making out in one of the rooms when Andrew walks in, and Brendon tells him to win the POV. I really can't stand Rachel and Brendon. They really sicken me with their constant face sucking, acting like this is a great romance. Matt tells Kathy that he won't be campaigning for one over another. Andrew tells Kristen and Hayden that it's really stupid to put up Andrew in the hopes of backdooring Brendon. Hayden says that he hopes he gets to compete becuase he will use the POV to take off Andrew in the hopes that Brendon goes up.
Andrew flips out when Rachel put the peaches in the ice tea because that instantly made the ice tea inaccessible for the have nots. Andrew said that Rachel is insensitive to others. Kathy checks on Andrew, and he says that he can't understand Matt's reasoning, and he really can't stand Rachel because she is an idiot.
The Brigade talk in the backyard about the plan to possibly backdoor Brendon. Matt said that if the opportunity presents itself, Brendon will be backdoored.
Andrew said that cleanliness is next to godliness. As Enzo says, Andrew cleans the stuff that's already clean. Andrew does all the cleaning, laundry, and everything. As Andrew says, he needs to talk to some of these people's moms.
Time to pick for the POV. Matt picks Brendon's name. Kathy picks Lane. Andrew picks Rachel. As Andrew says, it couldn't get worse. Andrew said that he thought God loved him, but obviously, Andrew must have done something wrong. Enzo is the MC. Matt and Lane were complaining about how it could be possible that Brendon and Rachel got into the competition. So out of the Brigade, it comes down to Lane and Matt. Every time, they talk about Brendon and Rachel, the producers show them smooching. Andrew talks to Matt in the storage room about how it sucks that Brendon and Rachel are playing. They seem to think of Brendon and Rachel as scientists. I think Rachel is just boobs. Lane, Enzo, and Matt are making fun of Andrew in his prayer clothes, and call him Captain Kosher. They hope that Andrew wins the POV so they can take out Brendon or Rachel.
Lane talks about coming from Texas, and having a gun and shooting at things. Boring conversation. Then it's time for the POV competition. Enzo is dressed up like a genie. The competitors have ten minutes to look at the items on scattered around the yard. Andrew realizes that it's one of those counting games. Matt claims that he is great at math, but he can't count. Yeah, right. The goal is to win three points. Everyone writes down a number, then they can decide if they stay or fold. If they are stay and are close to the actual number, they get a point. If they play, but aren't close, they are out. Andrew says that he has to win, and so does Brendon. First they have to guess the number of fortune cookies. Lane said that it's like Texas Hold'Em. Andrew, Brendon, Kathy, and Rachel fold. Matt and Lane stay. So right off the bat, they eliminated a Brigade member. Andrew would have won if he stayed because he guessed it right. Then they had to count the candles. Rachel decides to stay, saying that she has to figure out what Brendon will do. Rndrew was only 6 over on the candles, and he stayed to win, and eliminated Matt. They have to guess the size of a spiral. Brendon gets a point, and Kathy is eliminated. Brendon and Andrew both have a point. Andrew was fairly close to guessing the number of Tarot cards, and he was the only one to stay and won. Then they had to guess potion. Then Brendon was the only one to stay so now it's a tie of two points between Andrew and Brendon. They they had to guess the number of eyeballs in a glass. They all stayed. Brendon wos the closest and won the POV. In the DR, Brendon says that the house is being taken over by Brachel. I really can't stand Brendon or Rachel. Especially Rachel because she is so skanky. Brendon says that he needs Andrew to stay in the house because Andrew would be on Brendon's side. Again, Brendon on top of Rachel in the bed.
The funniest thing is when Enzo says in the DR that Matt isn't the brains of the group anymore since he really screwed up the nominations. Matt talks to Andrew in the HOH room. Andrew said that he trusts Matt and hopes the Kathy goes home. Andrew said that he couldn't understand not putting both Brendon and Rachel up. Matt said because he wanted to make sure that it was Brendon who would leave. Andrew then says in DR because Matt is so bad and making a mess of everything, he doesn't want Matt working on his behavior. As Andrew says, he will clean up his own mess.
Andrew and Brendon talk late at night. Andrew says that he is going to make a move, but for Brendon to not tell Rachel. Time for the POV ceremony. Andrew says that he is tired of being the scapegoat, so he has to take care of himself. Ksthy goes first and says that Brendon should not use the veto on her because Rachel would go up. Andrew said that Matt's strategy worked last time, so he's going to tell Brendon right out that he is going after him and Rachel and wants Brendon to use the POV on him. Everyone looks confused. It was a stupid talk. Andrew said that if the house thinks he is going to get Brendon or Rachel, everyone will vote to keep him. Matt said that now everyone thinks Andrew is working with Brendon and Rachel. Brendon thought Andrew did a convincing job. I like Andrew, and I hope he stays, but it's so hard to tell how those losers will vote.

BB Nominations Show
The BB show this evening started with the endurance HOH competition. Britney said she had to win because she doesn't know where she will stand in the house, and Andrew said that he had to win HOH because he was alone in the game, and he did not want to be a Have Not because slop isn't kosher. Kathy realized that she might have sealed her fate by voting for Matt. Matt knew that Britney and Kathy were the ones who voted against him. Meanwhile the whole Brigade wants one of the members to win because they need to keep the Brigade save.
As a comment on the endurance competition, Andrew said it was hard with the water and the board moving. As he said, it's not a Jew sport. Kathy claimed that she fell to make herself seem to be weak. Lane fell off because he's not used to board sports. Matt says right away that he could do this all night. It looked like Kristen just jumped off the board, and then Hayden jumped off the board to. As he said, he might was well eat and have a great week because he felt safe. Britney also leaped off because she didn't want to be a Have not. Brendon realized that he had to win this week. Enzo made fun of Andrew's short shorts, saying that the Daisy Dukes didn't look kosher. Matt and Ragan were staying up close against the wall, and I think that's why they lasted that long. Matt was playing mind games with everyone telling them that he was a sure thing for the competition. Ragan asked Andrew if he was okay, and Andrew said nope. Enzo didn't want another Have not week, but his right leg was hurting him, and he couldn't stay on. Enzo felt that he let down his family and the Brigade. Lane said that Matt had to stay on to make sure the Brigade stayed safe. Ragan called out to his former high school bullies, telling them that he was doing better than them because he was on BB.
Brendon fell off, and Rachel consoled him, because Brendon was upset that he let Rachel down by not winning HOH. Andrew really badly wanted a letter from his family and his daughter, and said he would cry, but wouldn't. Ragan tells Andrew that if Ragan won HOH, he would not put Andrew up. Andrew said he had a two out of three chance of being safe that week. Andrew feel off when the surfboard pulled in. He said, it felt like someone shoved him. Ragan asks all the houseguests to go into the house, and then they start talking about HOH. Matt tells Ragan that Ragan doesn't have to give him HOH because he can do this forever. Andrew was the first to come back out because he forgot his yamulka. Matt told everyone they could come back out. At 2:15.48, Ragan got this tear-eyed look, and then jumped off the board. So Matt wins the HOH, and Brendon realizes that Matt winning puts a huge target on his and Rachel's back. Rachel and Matt go into one of the rooms, and Rachel starts crying. Brendon tells Rachel not to treat Matt any differently. Rachel goes out and asks to talk to Matt for five seconds, and Matt says that they can talk for 20 seconds. Matt tells Rachel that he kept up his side of the deal, and all Rachel had to do was to keep it quiet, but Rachel couldn't do that. Rachel said that was her worst nightmare, and she believes that Matt is going to send her home.
Britney and Enzo were in the kitchen, and Britney was making fun of Enzo's New Jersey accent. Finally, it was time to see Matt's HOH room. Matt felt very emotion seeing all the things that his wife got him. Matt's wife made comments about being okay and being strong, and everyone took that to mean she was talking about the disease that Matt made up her having. The Brigade meets in the HOH room to talk strategy. Enzo said that Brendon and Rachel must go because they are public enemy number one. Matt said that Rachel made sense. Matt says that Kathy is on his radar though. Hayden leaves the HOH room so he could go and make out with Kristen. He tells Kristen that they have to be really, really careful. Hayden said that, of course, he is a member of the Brigade, but that he would do anything to keep Kristen save. Lane, Enzo, and Matt talk about Hayden and Kristen looking a lot alike and that they might be related to each other. Enzo claims that Hayden spends a lot of time with Kristen but doesn't hook up with her. Meanwhile Hayden is down in the other room, laying on top of her. Enzo says bros before hos. Matt doesn't think Hayden will turn on them, but Lane said anything can happen.
Rachel starts cutting Brendon's hair by straddling him, but Andrew is right there vaccuuming the hair off the floor. Then Brendon and Rachel are making out on the bed, when Andrew walks into to get his clothes. Andrew says that he feels very uncomfortable, and Rachel says they have no were else to go. Britney and Lane are in the kitchen watching Brendon and Rachel in the yard. Britney and Lane start making up a pretend conversation, mocking the couple. Enzo and Andrew are talking about what the food would be for the Have nots. When they go into the kitchen, they find that it's baby food and bok-choy. Andrew is happy because it's kosher.
Matt told Brendon and Rachel that they were really stupid to have called that stupid house meeting. Matt claims that he won't put up Brendon and Rachel and said that means he wants some say in their nominations if they win next week. Andrew goes up to the HOH room, and Matt said that everyone likes Andrew and thinks that he is being much more social. Matt tells Andrew that he wants to put Andrew up, but that he doesn't want Andrew to go home. Andrew asks about Brendon and Rachel, but Matt said that he wants to backdoor them. Andrew said, if you want someone to go, you should put them up.
Nomination time. Brendon said he's sweating the nominations, but he'll worry about it after the fact. Andrew said that Matt's plan doesn't make any sense, and the it might blow up in his face. Andrew realizes that Matt doesn't care because it's not Matt on the block. Matt said that there is a lot to put into the nominations because the Brigade has to be cool with the nominations. Time to pull the keys. First safe is Ragan, then Kristen, Hayden, Enzo, Lane, Britney, Rachel, and finally Brendon. As we already know, Andrew and Kathy are on the block, and Brendon has the POV.
Saturday, July 24, 2010 -- Evening
Nominations and POV
Ragan did give up the HOH to Matt, who promised Ragan that Ragan would be safe for the week. Matt instead came up with a plan to nominate Andrew and Kathy with the goal of using the POV to take Andrew off the block and replacing him with Brendon. This would have been a good scheme if Matt didn't tell Brendon about his plan, and if Brendon and Rachel didn't have their names picked from the bag as POV competitors. Brendon won the POV, and it's not likely that he will take anyone off the block. Supposedly, this will mean that Kathy will get voted off on Thursday, but you can never tell with these houseguests. I'm getting really tired of the Brendon/Rachel overboard showmance, and the Hayden/Kristen sex show. It's just becoming old and tiresome.
Thursday, July 22, 2010 -- Late Evening
Who will be HOH?
When the feeds came back on, Kathy and Lane were both off the surfboards, after around 16 min. Kristen was out a few minutes later. Hayden falls off next, and then Britney comes down. Those are the five Haves. I would have thought that Britney would have tried to stay on longer, but I guess that she couldn't. Enzo goes down next and becomes the first Have Not. Left are Matt, Ragan, Andrew, and Brendon. Brendon comes down, and I'm cheering on Andrew now! Dang! Andrew fell, leaving only Ragan and Matt who start to make deals as soon as the others go into the house. I would never leave folks alone during an endurance competition. It looks like Ragan wants to hand over the HOH to Matt. I never understand it when people do that, but I guess if you figure you are really safe, then you can compete for HOH the next week.
Thursday, July 22, 2010 -- Evening
Eviction NightEviction night on Big Brother. The show, of course, starts immediately after the POV ceremony. Monet was really upset at still being Rachel's target, and thinks Rachel is a stupid, bimbo. Britney is also upset that Rachel picked Matt over Andrew. As Rachel says in DR, she does not trust Monet. Matt says that he has the Brigade and the entire house behind him, so he's just sitting pretty and waiting for Monet to go home. Lane loved the pawn comments that Rachel made, and Matt tells Lane that's what he told Rachel. Brendon tells Rachel that she made the right decision. Britney cries because Monet is her only friend in the house. Then we have a crying fest with Monet and Britney. Monet thinks everyone is stupid, but obviously Monet is stupid because she is going home. Matt joins in the pity party. Matt tells Britney and Monet that Rachel and Brendon will get theirs next week. Matt says in DR that he could care less, and he's just having fun with the criers.
Kristen goes out to the back yard to join the guys, then she and Hayden go into the bedroom to have sex. Hayden talks about how secret their showmance is, but that's all we see on the feeds, and it is absolutely sickening and boring. Andrew says in DR that he's in the same room with them, pretending to sleep, and he's overhearing everything Hayden and Kristen are saying about how hot they are, and how much they love each other, etc. Rachel tells Kristen and Hayden that people are talking about her vote, but Rachel was lying just to see where Kristen is sitting. We seldom see Kristen on the show, although she stars on the feeds in her sex things. Kristen asks Britney and Monet if they are saying that she is voting to evict Matt. Kathy goes running in to tell Rachel to go out and talk. Monet tells Rachel to stop saying that Monet is a bitch. Rachel tells Monet that she doesn't use language like that. Monet walks away, hinting that she would love to punch out Rachel's lights.
Britney goes and cries to Rachel after the back yard drama, basically because Britney wants to be safe next week. Rachel tries to make an ally by telling Britney that Matt volunteered to go up. Britney then tells Rachel that Matt is acting pissed at Rachel putting him up, and that Matt is going after her. Rachel is stupid because Matt told Rachel to keep the volunteering thing quiet because he's going to be acting shocked at being put up. Rachel calls a house meeting. Everyone went to the meeting, except for Andrew who was observing Tisha b'Av. Matt gets called out for saying he would put Rachel and Brendon out. Matt said that he and Ragan were bullied into the HOH. Matt tries to talk sense about how he is playing a game. Rachel says that Matt is playing everyone in the room. Matt says that they are really stupid, while Rachel keeps on saying that Matt played both sides of the house. I don't think that Rachel gets that it is a game, and that Matt TOLD her that he was going to act like he hated being up on the block. Rachel is an idiot.
The houseguests are asked about the saboteur, and Hayden said that now they can trust others a bit more than before, which elicited a laugh from the audience, and an "oh really?" from Julie. Everyone is asked about the Have Not competition. Andrew is asked about being and observant Jew, and he says that everyone is very tolerant of him practicing his faith. Kathy is asked which is worse, being a police office or being in the BB house.
Talking to Rachel in the HOH room. Julie asks Rachel about Matt, and Rachel says that she thinks that Matt is a snake and won't let anyone take advantage of her or Brendon. Julie asks about the relationship, and Rachel says that Brendon is once in a lifetime, and she has to go for it. Rachel has an incredibly irritating laugh, and just laughs constantly. Rachel says that if she had to pick between Brendon and the money, she would pick Brendon.
Matt and Monet get to plead their case. Monet says that it's been a pleasure to meet everyone, and she respects their decision. Matt says they are all his friends, but they should remember that it is just a game, and that no one should hold anything against anyone, and then Matt thanks the "Chen-bot."
Time for the vote. Andrew evicts Monet. Enzo votes to evict Monet. Britney votes to evict Matt. Kathy votes to evict Matt. Hayden votes to evict Monet. Kristen votes to evict Monet. Ragan votes to evict Monet. Monet is going home. Brendon and Lane vote to evict Monet. It's time for Monet to leave. The houseguests are told by a vote of 7-2, Matt is safe. Monet starts to cry, goes to collect her stuff, says "bye," and leaves. Enzo calls out that Monet is a great person and not to take it to heart. Britney cries over Monet's exit, while others console her. Monet said that she told those whose votes she knew she had good-bye last night and this morning. Monet knew that Britney and Kathy voted for her. Monet said that she isn't as emotional outside the house, and has learned that maybe she is more emotional than she thought. Monet thinks that winning the $10,000 was a factor in her getting voted out.
It's time for the HOH competition. This one is an endurance competition with a twist. The first five to drop out will be Haves for the week, and the others will be Have-Nots. The competition is called "Hang 10." There is a surf board setup. Rachel will be a Have for the week. The surf boards are tilted downwards and facing into a pool. BB has water pouring onto the houseguests on the boards. Who will be HOH? We should know soon.
Wednesday, July 21, 2010 -- Evening
POV CompetitionBig Brother started this evening with the Nomination Ceremony. Britney was really upset about being nominated with Rachel's claim that Britney was getting people against Rachel. Afterwards, Brendon and Rachel went to the HOH room to smooch. Downstairs, Britney started to cry in the Have Not room. Then Monet joined her and they both started to cry and feel sorry for themselves, saying that it wasn't game play, but was strictly personal. Monet kept on repeating that and calling Rachel a stupid hooker. Britney thought that she had been nice to Rachel. Hayden was worried about one of the brigade being nominated if someone comes off the block. Rachel said it was the worst feeling ever to know that she made Britney cry. Britney says that she's not made at Rachel or Brendon. Britney said that she doesn't know who told Rachel stories, but Britney hasn't gone to people saying things against Rachel. Rachel says that she wants to get rid of Monet, and Britney says in the DR that she would like to keep Monet. Rachel reminds Britney that there is the POV and that Britney is a strong player. Later, when Rachel and Brendon are making out in the HOH room, Rachel starts crying because she was mean to nominate two people. Brendon reminds Rachel that it's only a game. Rachel says that the only thing she doesn't want is for her and Brendon to be broken up. Monet claims that Rachel is jealous of Monet because Monet isn't a skanky stripper. Monet and Britney just sit around in the back complaining about Rachel and making really rude remarks about Rachel being a whore.
Matt and Andrew are talking, and Matt tells Andrew that his wife is sick with a disease. Matt tells us all in his DR that he is lying about his wife being sick. As Matt says, "who would vote out a guy who's just trying to save his wife's leg." Ragan says that Matt is there to play for his wife, and Matt is not there for selfish reasons. Andrew realizes that Matt is making up the disease. Matt thought he was safe because Andrew is a salesman. He doesn't know that Andrew is a podiatrist.
Time for the POV. Rachel gets houseguest choice, and she chooses Brendon. Monet chooses Lane, and Britney chooses Enzo. Enzo wants to keep the Meow-Meow safe. Basically the POV competition has the houseguests locked into stocks, holding onto a briefcase. The person who drops their briefcase closest to the hour mark, wins the POV. Hayden and Andrew notice that Brendon and Monet are counting. Monet says 60 times 60 is 1200. Britney got it right, counting up to 3600. Enzo was just trying to think of things that took an hour. Then while they were in the stocks, they started to get hit with a dollar bill. Lane admits that there were times when he woke up in college with one hand tied. Britney drops out first. Then Enzo. Then Lane. Brendon thought when Lane dropped out, it was 50 minutes. Then Brendon dropped. It was down to Monet and Rachel. When Monet dropped her briefcase, Rachel dropped it right after. Rachel had 1:15.17. Monet had 1:15.06. Brendon had 1:06.04. Lane had 1:01.29. Britney had 0:52.07. Enzo had to be closer to a minute without going over, but he had 1:00.14. So Britney got the POV.
After POV, Monet goes up to the HOH room while Rachel and Brendon are making out. Monet tries selling that Andrew is out to get Rachel and Brendon. Monet claims that Andrew is her target because he might be in an alliance with Rachel and Brendon. Rachel is really stupid, and says she has to think about it. Rachel doesn't want to have people pissed off. Rachel says she likes Andrew to which Monet says "at least he doesn't matter." Hayden, Enzo, and Lane are talking about who might be backdoored. Rachel says putting up Andrew is a win-win. If Andrew stays good, if Andrew goes then she has Britney and Monet's trust. Brendon, however, asks if they can trust Britney and Monet. Brendon doesn't think it's a smart move because Andrew hasn't been a threat. Britney and Monet think that Rachel will buy into it, and they are already patting themselves on the backs over their brilliance.
Ragan and Matt go to the HOH room. Rachel says she has to put someone up, but she wants to know that Monet will go home. Rachel wants to put Andrew up as a pawn, but still get him to stay. Rachel mentions putting up Andrew, and Matt says that it would be better to put Matt up because Andrew has too much going on in the house against him. Matt thinks that it's a win-win because he will gain Brendon and Rachel's trust and keep the Brigade safe. Hayden says that there is no chance he would put himself up as a pawn. Lane thinks it's huge that Matt gave himself up for the Brigade. Brendon agrees that Matt should go up. Brendon says not to put up Andrew because Andrew would not go for them, and if Andrew won HOH, he is on Brendon and Rachel's side. Andrew comes in at that point, and realizes that they may want to put him up. Andrew tells them, not to worry about it, that he is definitely on their side. The thing is that Rachel thinks Matt is acting suspicious. Brendon keeps on telling Rachel that she should not trust Britney and Monet. Brendon questions the wisdom in trusting two girls that are known as trouble. After a bit of yelling, Brendon says he doesn't want to discuss it, but he thinks it is a huge mistake to put up Andrew because they might risk Andrew going home, and Andrew is definitely on their side.
Time for the POV ceremony. Britney says it's obvious that Andrew would be put up. Matt thinks that it was a brilliant idea to go up as a pawn because it's a social game, and he is building trust left and right. Britney says right up that she is removing herself from the block. Rachel says it is a huge responsibility to put up someone, and says she genuinely likes everyone in the room. Rachel then says that she is going to do everything to make sure that everyone knows that Matt is only a pawn. Andrew says that he has to just watch Matt and Monet battle it out. Britney got upset because she said that she did so much work, and Rachel screwed her. Monet says she won't give up until she stays in the house.
Monday, July 19, 2010 -- Evening
Matt's Plan BackfiresThe POV ceremony was late this afternoon, and Matt was put up in Britney's place. The thing that is so hilarious about this is that Matt thought that having this weird paranoia behavior in front of Rachel and Brendon would keep him safe. Really? If you are that paranoid that you think they will put you up, then it might start them thinking that, in turn, if you were HOH, you would put them up. The burning question is if the houseguests will vote out Monet or Matt? The good game play would be to get out the person who might be the stronger player. That would mean Matt. However, I think that Monet will be having the door smack her backside on Thursday.
Sunday, July 18, 2010 -- Evening
Houseguests Learn Annie's RoleDuring the recap of Thursday's episode on tonight's BB, we saw that shortly after Annie left the BB house, a smoke bomb went off. I'm telling you those saboteur tricks were really, really lame. Brendon admitted that he was going to get a biological physics degree. In the DR, Andrew and Ragan were glad that they weren't outed yet. Brendon and Andrew were very excited and grateful when Rachel won. Hayden said that Andrew made the target bigger on his back because of his reaction to Rachel's win. Monet admits that she doesn't like Rachel, and Rachel doesn't like her, so Monet is thinking things aren't good for her. Rachel and Brendon make out after Rachel wins, and Brendon says that he is proud of Rachel. Rachel thinks they should use the HOH to get farther in the game. They both talk about getting rid of Monet and Britney so they can feel more secure in the house. Enzo and Britney talk about Andrew getting so excited when Rachel won. Enzo says that Andrew must be in an alliance with Brendon and Rachel because Andrew doesn't have anyone else in the house. Andrew tells Britney and Monet that he was excited that they didn't win because they would have put have him up. Andrew tells Britney that she knows that they have never liked each other, so why not just admit it.
It was HOH room time, and Matt commented about how you have to see like you really care about the HOH room. Rachel has the most annoying laugh, and Britney and Monet were really being petty and saying that it was embarrassing how excited Rachel was. That's what we call sour grapes. Rachel was also happy that she could spend the week alone with Brendon in her HOH room. Hayden and Lane talked (well, Hayden talked while Lane grunted) about how Rachel and Brendon might make a move against Hayden because Hayden put them up last week.
We finally got hear Kristen talk. She was walking past Hayden, and he saw her birthmark on her stomach. She claimed that a birthmark is the place that you were stabbed in a previous life. Crazy! Hayden tried to start a relationship with Kristen because he thinks that she is hot. Kristen thinks that she and Hayden have good chemistry. Later during the afternoon, Britney and Monet were sitting there making fun of everything the rest of the houseguests say. Britney says that Monet is the only girl she can stand to be around. Britney thinks Kristen and Rachel are so fake. Hayden says that Britney is the one who causes the drama. Rachel thinks that Monet and Britney are being very catty, which they are. Meanwhile Rachel and Kristen have bonded, and Rachel tries to talk Hayden into a Rachel/Brendon/Hayden/Kristen alliance, but Hayden doesn't seem to excited. So that puts some doubt into Rachel's mind. Matt claims that he is paranoid and wants to know if he is going on the block. Matt is just playing a game to get the target off Matt's back. Matt thinks that Andrew got too freaked out over Rachel winning. Matt tells Rachel that everyone thinks that Andrew is influencing Rachel. Well, his plan backfired with Rachel, and she started to think that Matt might have to go up since he is so paranoid. Rachel and Brendon started to make out in the HOH room, and during their makeout session, Brendon says that he thinks Matt is so nervous because he is hiding something. So Brendon is going to keep his eye on Matt.
Time for the Have and Have Not competition. They are in groups of four. Each group has to tape one of them members onto a wall, The wall is raised and whichever team lasts longest is a have. That team picks who is the have not team. Britney, Kathy, and Ragan were taped to the wall. Brendon thought Ragan wasn't as strongly attached. Ragan thought he wasn't getting targeted because everyone loves him. Then Ragan realized that it's because his tape job was so bad that it was obvious he would be the first off. Ragan could feel each piece of tape coming down, and he was the first to tall taking out the blue team. Blue team went after Britney . Kathy, who looks really scary, said that she was holding on with dear life. Britney thought that shooting at her face was personal. Like those folks could aim that good. Britney claimed that she couldn't breathe, and the green team had to take Britney off the wall. They orange team took the blue team as another have, so the green team was the have not team. When they went into the house, they found out that the have nots would have to eat fish sticks and fruit cake.
The saboteur video came on, and Annie admitted that she was the saboteur. Hayden felt like a king because he put up Annie. Matt admitted that he was wrong. Andrew was happy that he was now free of the innuendo.
Britney tells Rachel that she would not have put up Rachel and Brendon, but would have gone for Andrew. At least those are Britney's stories, and Rachel said that she can't be sure that she trusts Britney. Then Rachel talks to Monet, and Rachel tells Monet that she believes that Monet would put up her and Brendon. Monet lied and said, of course, she wouldn't do that. Monet said that she would have put up Andrew and a floater. Rachel said that she thought of Matt as a floater. Rachel talks to Hayden and said that she and Brendon want to know where Hayden stands. Hayden tells them that he would be with them and Kristen as the final four. Brendon says that he trusts Brendon and Kristen. Brendon mentions Matt, Lane, and Enzo as the people he trusts the least. Brendon mentions that Britney is a bitch, and Monet already has $10,000.
Time for nominations. Matt is confident that he false sense of paranoia was a good strategy (he doesn't). Britney doesn't think that Rachel is after her, but is after Monet and Britney might be guilty by association. Rachel claims that she is targeting people who would target her, which is why she should target Hayden. Payback. But she doesn't, because she goes with petty girl feelings. The first key pulled out of the box is Brendon, then Kathy, then Hayden, then Ragan, then Kristen, then Enzo, then Matt, then Andrew, and finally Lane. Monet and Britney are up for eviction. Rachel says that she knows how bad it sucks to be a have not and up on the block, but it's just a game. Britney says that she is pre-menstrual, and Monet says that she hates Rachel even more. Hayden is happy that all the folks he is aligned with are safe. POV will be shown on Wednesday, but we already know that Britney won the POV.
Saturday, July 17, 2010 -- Late Evening
Nominations and POVRachel has been saying that she wants to get rid of the floaters this season so now one floats to the end like Natalie did last year. To that end, she nominated Monet and Britney for eviction. Personally, I would think that Kristen is a floater since she never seems to be doing anything, but then what do I know. Anyway, the POV competition was today, and Britney won. So now Rachel will have to come up with a replacement. She is talking about Matt or Andrew as possible pawns. It doesn't seem as if Andrew is very popular in the house, so if he went up, he would be evicted. What I think is interesting is that Andrew is being promoted as an Orthodox Jew. If that were the case, how could he compete in competitions held on the Sabbath (Saturday). Not that someone who was really observant would even be on the show.

Who Cares About the Saboteur?Eviction night! We finally get to find out who the saboteur is. I can only hope that the action picks up with this pronouncement because so far, the saboteur's actions have been really lame.
Julie Chen was looking nice this evening in a tight blue dress. Hayden, on the other hand, looks like he needs a serious hair cut and wash. The action in the show starts right after the POV ceremony with Britney saying that Annie isn't playing with a full deck of cards. Rachel is sad that Annie is up against her, but she is hoping that she can stay in the BB house with Bredon. Annie got upset with Britney because she claims that Britney was telling others that Annie was aligned with Brendon. Brendon knows that Annie is acting crazy, so the secret is to just lay low and let Annie shoot herself in the foot. Annie took out her angry on Brendon. Brendon and Britney plan on just ignoring Annie. Matt says that the Brigade is running the house, and Annie is guaranteeing her exit by acting crazy. Annie makes a big deal about how Brendon is going to have to choose between her and Rachel and that Brendon will choose Rachel. Later, we see Brendon and Rachel making out. Right in the middle of making out, Brendon starts talking about Annie. The funniest comment was Rachel saying that he shouldn't be getting upset over a girl he just met 8 days ago. Like he didn't meet her 8 days ago.
Annie is the saboteur. Boy, that really sucks because Annie is probably going to go home tonight. One of the things Annie did was to plant devices that made cricket or other annoying sounds. We got to see the saboteur give the message that the two people on the block are not the saboteur. As an aside, the producers had to blank out Rachel's boobs because they were constantly hanging out of her bikini top. Andrew was talking to Hayden about splitting the power by getting rid of Rachel. Hayden is really contemplating it. Annie outed Brendon for not just being a swim coach, but also going for a PhD in Applied Physics in the fall. Annie really seems to be working on the whole crowd on voting out Rachel. It will be interesting to see if it works.
It's time for the houseguests to plea their cases. Annie said that he wouldn't say anything against Rachel, but she would say that Rachel was too close to Hayden, and that they had to get rid of Rachel to weaken Brendon. Rachel said that she has had fun, and it has been great to be in the house. Rachel ended by saying that she loved everyone in the house. Now for the votes. Monet evicts Annie. Andrew votes to evict Annie. Lane evicts Annie. CBS then went to a commercial break, but it was obvious that things were not looking good for the saboteur, Annie. Boy, that really has to suck for CBS.
Kathy votes to evict Annie. Kristen votes for Annie. Brendon also votes for Annie. So Annie is out. Ragan evicts Annie. Enzo votes for Annie. Matt evicts Annie. Britney happily evicts Annie. So everyone voted to evict Annie, and there goes CBS' saboteur plot. Rachel thanks everyone for keeping her, and Julie talks to Annie, telling her that CBS just told everyone that Annie was the saboteur. Julie said that Annie made a really good point in her final speech, but unfortunately no one there was very bright. Annie was shocked that America thought that Kathy was the saboteur because Kathy is a bit weird. Britney put in some snide remarks about Annie, but Ragan said that he thought Annie was the saboteur. When Rachel was obnoxious about Annie trying to get her man. That's when Annie said that Brendon was going after Annie, and Annie turned him down, and that's when the shomance started. As Annie said, "congrats on getting my sloppy seconds." You go girl! Oh, wait, you are going! Annie did promise that she left behind a saboteur surprise.
Now it's time for the HOH competition. It's a majority rules competition where the folks who answer in the majority advance while the minority are out. Whose life story would make more money at the box office? Kathy or Enzo. The majority chose Enzo. So Brendon, Kathy, and Kristen were out. Who does the majority think would win the Miss BB? Rachel or Kristen. Rachel got the most votes. Enzo, Matt, and Lane were out. Who is more likely to put a larger than life size sculpture in his house? Hayden or Brendon. Everyone picked Brendon. Who has more Facebook friends? Britney or Monet. Everyone picked Britney. Who would you cheat off in an exam? Ragan or Matt. Everyone picked Ragan. Who would the majority prefer to pack their parachute? Andrew or Lane. Everyone but Andrew picked Lane so Andrew was out. Who is more likely to talk their way out of a traffic ticket? Britney or Ragan. Britney got the most votes so Ragan was out. Time for the tie breaker for Britney, Rachel, and Monet. How many gallons of caramel were in the pool for the Sweet Tooth competition? Britney picked 41, Rachel had 80 and Monet had 735, but Rachel was the closest because it was in the 300 range. So Rachel is now HOH. Must have some of the folks in stitches over their eviction choice. Also, it seems that the houseguests will learn that Annie was the saboteur on Sunday.
Wednesday, July 14, 2010 -- Evening
POV CompetitionTime for the POV show of Big Brother. The show starts right after the Nomination Ceremony. Enzo thinks that Brendon is probably the saboteur. Hayden thinks that Rachel and Brendon are too close, too early, so you have to break it up. Rachel thinks that Hayden did it to stop the twosome from hanging out. Brendon doesn't want to go home in the first round because he wants to show that he is a tough competitor. Annie comes in to the room with Brendon and Rachel in shock. Shortly after Annie enters the room, so does Lane. Annie claims that she is sad because she likes Brendon and Rachel, but doesn't want to hang out with them because that would put a huge target on Annie's back. Enzo comes into the room, and he starts to become suspicious of Annie's actions. Enzo tells Hayden and Lane that he thinks Annie is in an alliance with Rachel and Brendon. After the guys were talking, Annie came out to join them, and Lane, Hayden, and Enzo acted suspiciously quiet. The funny part for me was when Brendon started to get teary-eyed because he was being nominated because it made Brendon feel that he wasn't loved. That got to Rachel, and she and Brendon pulled a blanket over them on the hammock and started to make out. Meanwhile, the other houseguests were looking out from the kitchen. For some reason, Rachel and Brendon making out made Hayden angry about them increasing the size of the target on their backs. Yep, it definitely does sound like Hayden has a case of the green-eyed monster.
Brendon goes up to the HOH room, and tells Hayden that if Brendon wins the POV and comes off the block, he's coming after Hayden if Hayden doesn't make a deal with him. Brendon tells Hayden that he trusts Annie, and that seems to confirm Hayden's thoughts (supplied by Enzo) that Brendon, Rachel, and Annie are in an alliance.
Time to pick people to play for the POV. The HOH and two nominees pick someone to play. Rachel said that she would use the veto to take Brendon off the block because she thought Brendon would be more likely than herself to be sent home. Hayden picks Enzo's name from the bag. Brendon picks Andrew, and Rachel picks Monet. Monet was offended because Rachel rolled her eyes when she picked Monet's name. Hayden selected Annie as the POV host. Enzo, Matt, and Hayden were discussing options if Brendon or Rachel wins POV. Brendon tries to talk to Hayden before the POV and make a deal if Brendon wins. Hayden didn't want any part of it, and that was probably a bad move on his part.
Time for the POV competition. Pinatas were all over the back yard. The pinatas were filled with sour mayo and letters on cardboard. The goal was to spell the longest word correctly. The other houseguests had to watch in the splash zone, so everyone was getting rotten mayo on them. Andrew commented that mayo was kosher so it was okay if it got into his mouth. Hayden was caught on spelling journeyman. Andrew said as a doctor, he would know how to spell anything. Rachel was hung up on spelling chemistry. Brendon just took the route of collecting letters and eventually spelling something. Hayden spelled "possible." Enzo spelled "factory." Rachel spelled "chemistry." Rachel was in the lead. Monet spelled "cheaters." Brendon spelled "understanding." Brendon took the lead with 13 letters. Captain Kosher (as Hayden called him) picked pastuerized" which was misspelled. Brendon said that Hayden should have taken the deal because now Brendon is coming. Andrew said in his diary room that he purposefully misspelled the word. Enzo said they could put up Kathy, but then what happens when if Kathy is voted out. Enzo and Matt talk, and they decide to backdoor Annie.
Enzo, Matt, and Hayden talk about putting Annie on the block in place of Hayden. Enzo claims that he thinks Annie is the saboteur. Annie goes to the HOH when Britney and Monet are there. Annie said that she is scared because it will be one of them. Britney tells Annie that Hayden asked Britney if Annie was close to Brendon. Britney admits in the diary room that she has no allegiance to anyone o that's why she told Annie. Annie confronts Hayden about it, and says that she heard it from Britney. Annie throws Britney under the bus claiming that Britney is trying to stir up trouble in the house. Lane says that Rachel will always side with Brendon, but Annie could be swayed to vote with them. Lane thinks Kathy should go up because she's neutral and Kathy wouldn't be as traumatizing to others in the house. Hayden doesn't know what he wants to do. The saboteur comes back, and in the videotape, the saboteur claims that two of the houseguests are life-long friends. Kristen (who we haven't seen much of) thinks it's Matt and Annie. Andrew thinks that Matt and Ragan are a pair. Andrew tells them all that he is not the saboteur because he is not friends with anyone there because no one there knows anything about judaism. Andrew tells the viewers in the diary room that he is just trying to divert attention from himself.
Time for the POV ceremony. Brendon says that he is trying to preserve both himself and Rachel. Kathy is saddened with the thought that she might go up on the block. Annie thinks that Britney is lying to her, and that worries her. Brendon uses the POV (obviously), and Hayden nominates Annie as the replacement. Annie blames Britney for lies when Britney was the one who tried to warn her. Annie said that she never thought people would be dumb enough to put someone like her on the block. Rachel is happy for Brendon, and thinks they can concentrate on keeping Rachel in the house.
So far this season, I'm really having trouble coming up with anyone that I really want to watch in the house, or root for. They are such a vapid, loser bunch, in my opinion. Tomorrow, we find out who the saboteur is and who gets voted out.
Tuesday, July 13, 2010 -- Evening
Drama? Not ReallyBoredom at the Big Brother house. I have to admit that this crew of houseguests are on the boring side so far. Annie is being targeted as the first person to be voted out of the house. I'm looking forward to finding out who the saboteur is and if he/she will be doing anything really cool because so far for me, it's just been a bust. I hope that they don't have the saboteur doing lame stuff like they have with America's Player. Thursday, the viewers get to find out who the saboteur is.
Sunday, July 11, 2010 -- Evening
Nominations and IntrigueI haven't been commenting on the happenings in the Big Brother house, but it doesn't mean that things haven't been happening. Alliances are forming, Brendon and Rachel were the first to be nominated with Brendon winning the POV. Annie went up in his place.
The show was on this evening, and it picked up where it ended on Thursday with the food storage room locked. They were down to slop, which of course, no one likes. As Annie commented, paranoia was running rampant through the house. Andrew admits that everyone thinks that he is the saboteur. Brendon didn't look good either because he got up to get his toothbrush when the lights went out. The goobers are so stupid that they don't realize that it's probably not the most obvious person. Enzo and Andrew talked about the who the saboteur might be. Andrew likes and trusts Enzo, not realizing that Enzo doesn't trust Andrew. Andrew says that he thinks it's Brendon who is the saboteur, and everyone seems to thtink that the whole toothbrush thing was suspicious. I thought the funniest thing was when Brendon said that he had a master's in physics. Rachel admits that she has a chemistry degree and is a member of the American Chemical Society. Rachel and Brendon bonded over their love of science, and Rachel said that she fell in love with him then. Brendon thought that it was great to talk science with such an attractive girl. A group of folks were in the HOH room talking about who would be the saboteur. They thought that it might be Annie so she is on the list of people to target. The thought is to target a female saboteur candidate this week and a male saboteur next week.
Annie approached Ragan and told him that she has a girlfriend. Annie said that she felt comfortable sharing that with him. I think that she targeted the gay guy, so she could bond with him. Ragan told Annie how honored he felt that she shared her confidence with him. Rachel said that she wanted to encourage others to love chemistry. We see Brendon and Rachel chatting in the hot tub while Hayden looks at them suspiciously. Hayden said that it looks like a shomance, and that means alliance, so he's thinking he needs to target them. Enzo thinks that he can convince Hayden of what he needs to do. Enzo tries to form an alliance with Lane, Hayden, and Matt. Matt thinks that those guys have his back, and thinks it will be the strongest alliance in BB history. Enzo says that they will make BB history, and he thinks that he's the mastermind and organizer. Enzo comes up with nicknames for them. Lane is the Beast, Hayden is the Animal, Matt is the Brains, and Enzo is the Meow-Meow. They call the group "the Brigade." Lane says that he has no clue what a brigade is. Matt thinks that he should put up Brendon and Rachel. I'm waiting for the first crack in this alliance.
It's time for the Have and Have Not competition, and Andrew claims that he has to win because slop isn't kosher. The houseguests split into three teams. The first two teams to find eight teeth will get to eat while the other team is the Have Not. Monet thought that the caramel pool was incredibly sticky, and Brendon wound up losing his shorts. Matt found the first tooth to give the blue team the early lead. Brendon was second to find a tooth, bare butt and all. Pink quickly tied the game. Annie got the second tooth. The blue team was complaining because Kathy was looking too slowly for the tooth. Britney couldn't crawl though the caramel. The green team took an early lead with four teeth, with blue in second with three teeth. Pink only had two teeth. Britney was really stupid to get herself totally covered in caramel because that really slowed her down. The green team got eight teeth first, so Andrew, who was on green, didn't have to go on slop. Meanwhile, Kathy was stuck in the caramel, and acting like such a loser by making no effort to get out of the caramel. Blue lost the lead because of her, and pink finished second. Matt now thinks that Kathy is the saboteur because there was no reason for her to just give up. The Have Not bedroom looks awful with lounge chairs for bed, and it smells because of the jars of maggots. Kathy carries on like a simpleton. I really dislike Kathy. She gave up on the competition, and claimed she got so tired digging through the popcorn. Kathy said that Britney was the weakest and struggling, when Kathy was just laying in the caramel, and not moving.
In the morning, green X's appeared on Kathy and Britney's pictures. Andrew was the first to notice it. He ran to tell Hayden, and Hayden says it is so obviously Andrew. As if the saboteur would be stupid enough to call attention to himself. Kathy said that she was scared but played it off. The houseguests are so incredibly stupid. The saboteur tape plays in the living room, and he tells everyone to watch their back. Britney talks to Hayden about it, and Hayden said that he is trying to make a decision that would cause the least drama. Britney said that she would nominate Kathy, but she would vote for whomever Hayden puts up.
It's finally time for the nomination ceremony. Andrew is automatically safe because he didn't compete in the HOH. Annie got the first key, then Ragan, Enzo, Kristen, Britney, Matt, Monet, Kathy (who was looking on with bug eyes), and finally Lane. Brendon and Rachel are up because of the showmance, and Hayden's jealousy of it, and Brendon brushing his teeth during the lights out.

Big Brother ReturnsBig Brother started this evening. The contestants seemed interesting. Andrew is a podiatrist and a practicing Orthodox Jew. Rachel claims to be a chemist, although she is actually listed as a VIP cocktail waitress. The show started with the contestants getting their key and being told that they had an hour to get ready. I loved how Andrew took pots so he could keep kosher while he's in the house. Boy, I don't see Andrew lasting long! It's so interesting to hear all the schemes that the players have before they go into the house. Because they never manage to keep to their plans, or the others foil them. The twist this season is that one of the guests is the saboteur who is playing the game not to win the money. Rachel was one of the first to go into the house, and I thought that she would knock herself out with one of her boobs when she ran into the house.
Matt said that he's a Mensa genius with an intellect in the top 2% of the world. Monet commented on how Rachel had watermelons on her chest. As the group introduced themselves, they seemed really vapid. Rachel is the opposite of Matt and said that Andrew was wearing a Yom Kippur on his head. Andrew lied about his occupation and said that he was a shoe salesman. Ragan also lied about his career saying that he was a graduate student instead of already having a PhD.
Surprise of surprises! Julie had the houseguests gather in the living room and told them that one of them is not there to win the game. She tells them that is a saboteur in the house whose mission is to sabotage the game. If the saboteur makes it to the 6 week mark, he/she gets $50,000. If he/she gets evicted before that, he/she gets nothing. Kathy, as a police office, is curious about figuring who is the saboteur.
For the HOH competition, the houseguests had to split into two teams of six with one of them being the mascot. Andrew raised his hand to be the mascot, and that made Enzo suspicious that Andrew was the saboteur. Unfortunately, being the mascot, Andrew couldn't compete for HOH. Andrew started to rethink his decision when he had to dress up like a hot dog. Andrew did find out that although he couldn't be HOH, he was safe from the first eviction. That made a slew of the guys suspicious. Although I'm sure that the saboteur WANTS to be HOH. The competition had the houseguests holding onto a hot dog across a moat to either win money or if you are last across, HOH. Monet and Annie got the $10,000 on each of their teams. All the fun ended when Britney fell off the hot dog and hurt her leg. Britney got to go to the other side, and Kristen was brought back to try again. The red team was the first to get all their players across, and Hayden was the last player, so he was HOH.
America gets involved with the saboteur by suggesting things that the saboteur could do to the houseguests. THe lights went out. Brendon went to brush his teeth, and Andrew played pranks by making noises. When the lights came on, the storeroom was padlocked and the houseguests have to eat slop. Various people are thinking it was Andrew or Brendon, but I think that I suspect Matt. We will find out next Thursday.
Wednesday, June 30, 2010 -- Evening
Return of Big BrotherBig Brother returns on July 8, and the new house guests have finally been announced. It is interesting to notice that the cast is NOT predominately early 20s. Now the question is if that will give us more or less drama. One of the house guests is supposed to be a saboteur, as the new twist for the season. The saboteur will be different than the America's choice contestant because he or she will be in the game not to win in the end, but to screw around with people and the game.
