BB12: Afternoon of Luxury & Nomination Interviews
Good Afternoon BB Lovas!
The Feeds have been Trivia since 10:58 AM BBT
As the house guests compete for luxury prizes, let's recap what's been happening in the house. This competition has the potential to mend some wounds, and bring to right some bruised feelings.
It's been a roller coaster ride on the live feeds since yesterday's live show! Andrew's explosive speech and the tense HoH competition caused all BB heck to break loose between Kristin and Rachel, rippling to Brendon and Hayden and causing the HGs to go into a crazy tailspin.
Since then, both Rachel and Kristin have been having their individual melt-downs peppered with a couple of confrontations. Kristin has retreated into an incensed sulk, and Rachel to a pained funk. She is trying to figure out what happened to turn Kristin against her, prompting her to tell her flat out that she was gunning for her and Brendon.
One word: Kathy. Kathy has been poisoning Kristin against Rachel and Andrew the whole week dragging the once calm girl into a pit of ruthless cattiness.
Their battle came to a head during the HoH Competition when Hayden called Brendon and Rachel to face off. This was followed with Rachel calling Hayden and Kristin up. Then each woman called the other to go up against another HG, until Kristin was knocked out of the competition and Rachel was victorious.
Since then, Brendon and Ragan have been doing their utter best to mediate between Rachel and Kristin while others like Kathy just throw more fire into the gasoline...
How will this develop? Will Rachel put up Kristin? And if so, which is very likely, who will she put up against her? Will the Luxury Comp unite the fragmented house and mend torn nerves or will it serve to further drive a knife right into the heart of the house?
12:49 PM BBT
The HGs are dressed in prison guard and prisoners uniforms
Enzo is one of the people who won the movie. Brendon and Rachel as well...
Rachel: I can't wait for us to see the movie!
Britney: I really wanted to see that movie.
Matt: Five seconds from watching a movie.
Enzo: I tried pulling him (Hayden) up and I nearly fell. (Enzo is super pumped.)
Rachel invites anyone who wants to go up to HoH to talk can at any time. Enzo says he might as well get it over with.
1:04 PM BBT
Rachel, Brendon and Enzo
Enzo asks Rachel if Kristin will come up to talk to her. She says she has asked her to. Enzo and Brendon did really well in the competition. Rachel says the two of them are unstoppable...They start some major snacking.
Brendon is talking about wanting people who want to compete in the house. Rachel says she has mad respect for Enzo. Enzo is all about agreeing.
Enzo: Now I got food in me... I said it this morning. I'm winning something today...
Talk turns to Kristin's behavior. Enzo is pumping them full of compliments. He tells them he has no alliances, that he has friends in the house but that's it. Brendon asks him to swear on his daughter that he won't put them up.
Enzo: If I become HoH you guys are safe. No Back Doors.
He leaves. Rachel has swallowed everything Enzo said hook line and sinker. Enzo goes to Cabana Room to tell his alliance what was discussed, that they should push their get-rid-of-floaters agenda. He is ticked that they made him swear he would not put them up. Lane says he won't be promising anything.
1: 14 PM BBT
Rachel apologizes to Kathy for her overreaction. Talk turn to Kristin again.
Kathy: She's my friend. I love you to death. I love you to death. It's in my nature.
She goes on to say that she would appreciate it if Rachel doesn't put her up.
Kathy: I need to be here. I'm your friend. I don't want to be punished for being her friend.
Brendon: Don't worry about that.
Kathy: I'm not a floater. I didn't live through cancer, not to fight in here...
She plays the morality trumpet again. That's her nature folks!
Brendon is doing most of the talking. Rachel is eating, other than jokingly saying she is the HoH, she lets him talk. He tells Kathy she is a sweet woman and not to worry... (*gag)
Rachel: I'll tell you honestly. I don't know what I will do. With Kristin... I don't know, she was my friend...
Brendon jumps in again.
Kathy: I don't know what happened. I didn't see it coming.
Brendon: I love your compassion. I love how you try to keep the peace... (**someone get him an ophthalmologist, the boy is blind...)
Talk turns to the luxury competition...
1:28 PM BBT
Rachel is in the bathroom. Brendon and Lane chat about the competition. Rachel joins.
Rachel: Thanks for coming up here.
Lane: I feel like I am in an internship.
Rachel: I'm shocked I won HoH.
Lane: I'm not shocked. You know your sh*t up there.
Rachel: What are you thinking?
Lane: I want good people to go to jury house. (**paraphrasing)
Rachel: I want to make sure when it came down to it, that if you win next week, even if there is a double eviction, that...
Brendon: A lot of people are going to point fingers and do anything to avoid being put on the block. I have heard that you want to put us on the block.
Lane: I heard from people that you would put me and Kristin up on the block. Then I heard Kristin said something about putting me and Enzo up.... I never said that.
Brendon: Ultimately at the end of the day, we are going to have to trust somebody's word... When we don't put up someone up on the block twice, we expect them (to do the same).
Rachel: I did hear too that if Lane wins, he would put us on the block.
Lane: I'm not surprised I was thrown under the bus. I never said that. I am grateful I was saved twice. I don't have an alliance. I have friends in the house.
Rachel: There's no obvious alliance in the house.
Brendon agrees that there are no other alliances in the house.
Rachel: I don't know what to do. It seems obvious who I would put on the block. I wasn't going to put her on the block.
Brendon: I expect if people are giving their word, they would keep it, not back stab.
Rachel: I just want to know about next week...
Brendon: If anyone tells you that we're putting you on the block it's a lie. She will decide literally before nominations.
Rachel: Literally. Everybody has said they would put us up. Even people we thought we were friends.
Lane: I think anyone is chicken sh*t who puts you up next week.
Brendon: I know you're an athlete and you uphold a code of honor...
While this is going on, Kathy is in the Storage Room with Kristin. She is giving Kristin her skewed version of what was said up in HoH. Hayden comes in and she regurgitates what she told Kristin. Hayden asks Kristin if she would go up to HoH, and she says no. She won't go talk to Rachel. She will fight for the PoV.
1:46 PM BBT
Britney comes in.
Rachel: I'm really glad you and I've gotten closer.
Britney: It's made things easier.
Brendon says Britney has grown on him and he feels she is a genuine person. No game talk really. Just talking about the competition.
Britney flat out asks Rachel who she would put up.
Rachel: At this point I don't know.
Britney: You have to think who you want to play the veto, who you want to play for who.
Brendon says he assumes Britney won't put them up. He appreciates that Rachel has a girlfriend in the house... Talk turns to Kristin and Hayden. Britney tells them about one night when Andrew came out of the Taj room ticked off at something Kristin and Hayden were doing.
Rachel: The one thing I don't understand about Kathy... I know you like Kathy, Brendon... She was tight with Monet and Britney and when I became HoH she threw them under the bus... Then she was close to Kristen when I wasn't HoH.
Britney agrees. She says that Andrew warned her about Kathy. Rachel apologizes that Monet is not there for Britney. Britney says that Monet is a distant memory now. Britney wonders when this thing between Hayden and Kristin happened. Rachel says that it was because Hayden was HoH, and Kristin saw her opportunity then...
Kristin comes up.
Kristin: When you're all done. Can I talk to you?
Britney says it's funny that Kristin said that she wasn't going to come up to HoH.
Rachel: If Kristin won, I know you and me (Britney) would go up.
Brendon advises her to be calm and drop everything else that happened earlier. They are going to leave them to talk alone.
2:30 PM BBT
Kristin: I just came up to say. This is a game. I'm not going to sit here and say sorry. We both said mean stuff. I feel like we can't go back and change things. I want to say I wasn't one of the people gunning for you,.
Rachel: You said that you would put me and Brendon up...
Kristin: I told you that's what the house wanted.
Rachel: I thought we were friends. You distanced yourself from me.
Kristin: I didn't do that... If I distanced myself from you, I didn't mean to do. And I'm sorry you thought I was coming against you.
They hash out their actions during the competitions.
Rachel: Every single time you put me up. Every single time.
Kristin: You're right. I did that. But so did you.
They both feel targeted by the other.
Rachel: I thought you and I were my besties... We went from friends, to you saying you would put me up because that's what the house wants.
Kristin: I said I know what the house wants.... Eventually, I wanted us to team up, and that's what I said that I want.
Rachel: I felt like you wanted to be the only girl here.
Kristin: That's not what I wanted. I wanted us to be friends and make it to the end together.
Rachel: Then why did you target me (during the competition).
Kristin: Maybe I did it because you put me and Hayden up.
Rachel: I did it because Hayden put us up.
Kristin believes the tension started between them because of Andrew. She understands why Rachel will put her up, but she wants Rachel to know she was not targeting her. She goes on to say that she was reacting to Andrew's speech during the competition.
Rachel: You're telling me, that if you won you wouldn't put me and Brendon up?
Kristin: I wouldn't put you up, Rachel.
Kristin goes on to tell her that last week she was trying to be there for Kathy. She had every intention of keeping Andrew. She is adamant about not meaning to distance herself from Rachel.
Kristin: If I was smarter, I should have thought about it. I would not have distanced myself from you for friendship reasons or for game reasons. I sincerely mean that. I just want you to know, I was never out for you Rachel.
Rachel: I don't understand why you do the things you do.
Kristin: The problem is (our style) of communication. It's not that I'm not a warm person. It's that if you don't tell me how you're feeling, it won't occur to me to ask...
She goes on to say that this was the reason she had tensions with a friend in her life.
Rachel: The reason I wasn't hanging out with Kathy, is because I told her I had different thoughts from Brendon. She kept asking me if Brendon would vote for her. (In other words, Kathy was hounding her for Brendon's vote.)
Kristin: I can say, we never even talked about you (with Kathy). We only talked about Andrew. (**lies)....
Things have calmed down between them and they seem to be making headway... Kristin is maintaining that she and Hayden did nothing. That she has too much common sense to do things like that with others around.
Rachel: Why hide?
Kristin: We didn't hide. We like each other, but decided we didn't want it to affect our game. It's almost like I wish I were open about it. Because look what happened to me anyway... The reason why I didn't accept your apology because number one I was heated, and number two because these things that were said were not true... I felt very attacked because the things that were said or the way they were said.
Rachel: In surfboard competition, why did you fall?
Kristin: I situated myself wrong and I slipped. I did not throw the competition. I am competitive. I could care two sh*ts about being a Have Not. I ate a spider. I did not throw the competition. Deep down I don't think apologies are necessary. I respect you and your game play.
Rachel: And I respect you Kristin too. I was upset because I thought we were friends.
Kristin: I would never put you up because you two would turn it around. You're strong players. That's not the way I want to play the game.
They are making progress....
Rachel: I think we both did things we shouldn't do.
Kristin: I agree.
Rachel admits to having talked trash about Kristin. Kristin keeps saying the same thing that she would reciprocate the actions. If someone protects her, she will protect them. If someone harms her, she will try to harm back.
3:32 PM BBT
The conversation between Kristin and Rachel is ongoing.... (2 hours so far.) Kristin believes that the women in the house are fighters, but some men in the house are floaters. They make a pact to communicate more in the coming week or weeks, no matter how long they are in the house together.
Everyone in the house are on pins and needles, waiting for this epic discussion to end...
**Got the live feeds ?? Spark them UP! This is ongoing....
Brendon comes in to tell them it's almost 4 and Matt needs to come up too. (**LOL!)
4:03 PM BBT
Rachel & Kristin hug it out. Kristin goes to get Matt.
Matt: I have been summoned?
Matt: Yes, My Queen!
Rachel: The only thing I want from you is to tell me who was upset with you for not putting me and Brendon up.
Matt: I don't feel comfortable doing that. I'll tell you who has never said it...
Matt: Ragan naturally... Two people off the top of my head.
Rachel: Two who have not?
Matt: Who not only didn't say it, but who thought it was not a good idea. Use your common sense.
Rachel: I totally respect you.
Brendon: We're not, I mean she's not putting you up this week.
Rachel: Matt I really like you.
Matt: And I like you too. I might hang out with people you don't like, but that doesn't mean I don't like you... Do you have any idea other than the apparent choice...
Rachel: With Kristin I thought we were friends, then she fed me a bunch of BS. Was Kristin one of the people who said not to put us on the block?
Matt: It may very well be. And the others might or might not have said it because it was a mob mentality (**paraphrasing).
Rachel: Did Kristin ever tell you that it was a good move that you didn't put me and Brendon up.
Matt: No... (**Which contradicts what Kristin told Rachel)
Brendon: So needless to say we're not putting you up this week... after this week...
Matt: You said it yourself get to jury house and compete with the competitors. There are other competitors in the house. Hayden is a beast. Lane's been near the top every time...
Matt asks them what their thinking is for this week. Will they put up floaters? Or play safe and go after competitors. He goes on to say they are not his targets.
This is a much friendlier conversation. Matt hints that there is a person who is a quintessential floater who is gunning for them.
Brendon: We consider Kristin is a floater.
Matt: Well she's floaterish, but she is competing on the social level.
Rachel: Is it a woman and a man?
Matt: It was someone who said nothing to me until Andrew made the PoV speech. It's someone who, if I were to stare at the memory wall, I would say. That looks like a floater.
They correctly surmise that it's Kathy. (**Dun dun dun!)
4:24 pm BBT
BB: Rachel. Please go to the Diary Room.
Matt leaves telling her to pick two people and let others decide. Brendon is pushing for her to put up Kristin. Rachel has no idea who she will put up. She says Kathy and Hayden... She's not sure...
Rachel goes to DR. Matt goes to tell his boys that he pushed the idea of putting up floaters to keep his Brigade safe...
4:37 PM BBT
Trivia... Let the head chopping begin!
