BB12: Evening of Renom Chaos
The feeds have been on fire tonight. Everyone has put their two cents in and trying to be the master manipulator.
- Britney, Monet, and Enzo want Rachel to put up Andrew.
- Matt has offered himself up as a pawn in a ploy to put Rachel and Brendon in the perfect position to be back doored. Lane is down with that. They congratulate themselves on fooling Rachel but she is on to Matt at the very least.
- Rachel is considering Andrew up as a pawn, and Andrew has said that she should do what she must.
- Ragan and Kristen are trying to make sure that Rachel does what is best for her and not succumb to other people's agendas.
9:50 PM BBT
Rachel & Kristen
They are talking about the situation in the house.
Rachel: It's a cat fight house now. First Annie now Monet...
They talk about the craziness of the house. Kristen is sure that none of the boys want the two girls around.
Brendon comes out. Rachel tells him that she is about to do something unexpected and what will give her more chance in the game.
Brendon: This house is crazy.
Kristen: I think the Britney, Enzo and Monet are allied.
Kristen is adamant that she thinks no matter what Enzo says, he wants Monet in the house. Kristen doesn't think that it's a good idea to put Andrew up as a pawn because he wouldn't understand the concept. (**Which he does. Andrew is much more on the ball than others give him credit)
Rachel brings up an alliance between the two showmances.
10:21 PM BBT
The proverbial Bubbles....
10:25 PM BBT
Ragan, Kristen & Rachel
Rachel: Thay's how the game is gonna be. Reality television.
Ragan: To be topsy turvy just for the sake for topsy turvy?
Kristen: That's why we need to keep control this week.
Rachel: That's why we need to play with strategy... Today, things came into light for me.... ( *Thanks to our lovely commentators, the theory is Rachel believes BB rigged the competition.)
Ragan: I see exactly what you're saying..
Kristen: We need to go into a competition where we have control
Rachel: It came full force to me today...I can't say too much right now. I might say at the wrap party... I don't think we were supposed to take Annie out last week. And I also don't doubt that there's friend in the house...We each three have our own strengths. We can anticipate what maybe the competitions might be, but they can't anticipate our strategy. We were playing without strategy. We need to think ahead logically. If we want to make sure that certain players are gone.
Kristen: We need to know who those players are, even if they are people we don't normally talk to.
Kathy comes out but doesn't interrupt the conversation. Nor does she take part.
Rachel: Professionals put us together. I have a checklist and he is every single piece of the checklist. I didn't expect that, but I should have expected the unexpected. Kristen and I would have been in Jamaica together in January...
Ragan: I feel like I am in the Matrix right now. (**You and me both honey!)
Rachel: I plan to work my way through the Matrix. Survive and keep my friends. That's all you can do. Work through the Matrix.
Prolonged silence. It's comfortable. Talk turns to the chicken Ragan cooked, and how yummy it was.
Rachel: Do you think when the house splits... do you think it will be me and Brendon and the other people I'm thinking about and then everyone else in the middle?
Ragan: Well, I ... (he is uncomfortable)
Rachel: Want to go upstairs?
She asks Kristen too but she declines. Rachel says nothing to Kathy. Ragan & Rachel go up to HoH.
Ragan: So my thought is after the split there will be huge floaters. When that happens go after the floaters...Instead of splitting the house... You turn it to three groups. One being the floaters. Two teams going after one.
Rachel: I'm going to cause drama tomorrow.
Rachel: It's the only way I can ensure my game play... **she sighs
Ragan: What? Tell me...
Rachel: I think it's so weird that Matt has been paranoid. He has been acting like Brendon is the HoH. I'm the HoH. He wants to be put him up as a pawn... To me that sets up a red flag. He wants people to think I am blindsiding him. It makes me look like an a-hole. I'm thinking, he's probably not the best person to put up because he said that.
Ragan: Just say it. If I say a word to anyone. Evict me
Rachel: It's going to be Andrew.... I think Matt wants to be on the side with Enzo, Britney and Lane. After I put him up as a pawn... He will go into the room and play the victim... (paraphrasing), It's suspicious that he would volunteer himself to be put up as a pawn.
Ragan: So you think that...
Rachel: I think Matt is playing both sides of the house. He brought up Andrew... I don't talk to Andrew. I am not aligned with Andrew. I've heard that Enzo wants to keep Monet here. I've seen them all hang out. Enzo, Matt, Britney, Lane, Monet if she stays...
Brendon comes in and Rachel asks him to come back in ten minutes... (**Oh Snap!)
Ragan needs a moment to process.
Ragan: These past couple of weeks have been hard for everybody. The biggest lesson I've taken away is... we can think something about somebody and find all the evidence to make that work... I obviously think a lot of Matt... I like him a lot...
Rachel: I like him too.
Ragan: I have heard him multiple times say I like Rachel. I don't want her to go anywhere. I want to give credence to what you're saying. I just want you to make sure...(paraphrasing) I don't get putting himself up as a pawn to protect Andrew...
Rachel: To protect Andrew?
Ragan: If Matt to be put up, then Andrew is safe from the block...
Rachel: I don't want to protect Andrew... I want to make sure Monet goes home. Putting up Matt, I'm afraid he is going to use it against me...
The reel rewinds and repeats.
Rachel: I don't think I have a good chance of winning this game.
Ragan: I think you and Brendon have a very good chance.
Rachel: I feel like I want to make the right decisions. I'm a fan. I watch the game. Britney too. She is a huge fan. She watches the live feeds. That girl knows what she's doing. You, on the other hand, I completely respect your game.
Ragan: Thank you!
Rachel: I see what you're doing. I see how hard you think about the game.
Ragan: Let's call a spade a spade. The house is already split. The people who you have talked to before you became HoH are on your side. The people who have talked to you once you became HoH, is the other side of the house. They (BB) make it seem like it was some cataclysmic event... but it was happening all along. You think that Matt is in between and jocking for position for next week? The move to put Andrew up will ensure... BUBBLES...
Rachel: He's trying to play the sympathy angle. Dan and Danielle used it very well (paraphrasing) If I put up Andrew, and he goes? Andrew goes. I don't talk to Andrew... (**meaning she can live with Andrew leaving)
Ragan: Andrew is a strong player. You have to think who you leave in the house more than who leaves the house. I think it would be a bad idea that Andrew leave the house.
Rachel: Really? Okay.
Ragan: My only suspicion with Matt is the Enzo thing... They used to hang out, and now they don't which I think is suspicious because nothing happened...
He encourages Rachel not to say anything explosive in the ceremony, but to talk to the players (Andrew and Matt) before. That way she diffuses any issues that someone was blindsided.
Ragan: So let me get this straight. If you put Andrew up, and he goes, you'll know. (*where people stand). People can't hide.
Rachel is called to the Diary Room.
Feeds go to the backyard. Lots of chit chat. No game talk.
11:19 PM BBT
CUT TO HoH
Kathy and Rachel
Rachel is filling Kathy in on Matt's volunteering to be put up as a pawn. Kathy is flabbergasted. She then quotes Ragan verbatum about the house is splitting. She wants to ensure the side of the house she is with is safe and the other side needs to fight. Rachel tells Kathy that's what she, Kristen and Ragan were talking about last night, and she didn't want Kathy to feel ostracized. She repeats the fact that Matt wanted to act blind-sided.
11:30 PM BBT
Lane, Brendon, Monet & Rachel are in stocks for an hour as a result of losing the PoV. It looks like Britney saved Enzo from the stocks.
