Big Brother 12: Endurance Comp
As predicted, the 1st Endurance Comp of the Big Brother 12 Season began on the live show tonight. Here's what Julie said: The 1st 5 HGs who fall will be the Haves for the Week. Rachel, as outgoing HoH, will also be a Have! It's going to be a long night!
It's going to be a great night!
As soon as the feeds come back on, we'll be updating here in this post, as long as the endurance comp lasts.
We always try to be as descriptive as possible, but honestly, nothing compares to watching an Endurance Comp Live on the feeds. If you still need them, here's the link for the 3 day free trial.
Spark up the feeds and join in the fun!!
Feeds are back!!! Lane & Kathy are 1st and 2nd out.
Everyone else is still in it.
Rachel: You got this, Brendon!
Kathy: You're all doing a great job!
Enzo: I may have to fall.. I gotta eat.
** Prediction: The Brogade will drop like flies who control the vote.
The HGs are getting accustomed to the apparatus, even talking about how BB must be controlling it with a joystick.
Kathy: Doin' good guys.
Rachel: Good Luck, Guys.
Mike O.: Hey guys, it's Mike here... (brb screen while he gives instructions)
Ragan: Mike O is like Jigsaw.
Britney, Kristen & Hayden are all out!
Enzo: Hayden, you just drop??
Hayden: A minute ago, during the wind.
Enzo: So that's it, we're have nots.
Britney: You got it, Matt.
Rachel: Good job, Enzo! Good job, Ragan!
Men Only Endurance Comp - All the women are out.
Ragan: I don't like it when it shifts, cuz that means trouble.
Enzo: That's what she said.
Matt: What size are your guys' shoes?
The guys all call out their sizes, with Enzo last at 13 and a half. Matt comments accordingly.
Ragan: So did I sound like a total perv during the live show? Ragan Fox, driving the gay movement back singlehandedly..
Just watching how the guys are handling the surf boards, each has their own technique.. Andrew and Matt definitely stand out as the most comfortable with the apparatus...
They hear the click click...
Matt: C'mon buddy, bring it.. Bring it. Is that all you got surfboard?
Ragan: I want a flesh surfboard. I wanna screw it.
Matt: In a half hour, they unleash crocodiles into the pond.
Here comes the wind & rain again!! You can tell how hard it's blowing just by looking at the spectator HGs.
Matt & Andrew have the easiest stances, while Brendon & Enzo are so close to the edge, I'm concerned for both of them...
Matt, Ragan, Brendon , Andrew & Enzo are all still in it and showing no signs of wear...
Ragan: Kristen, if I become a have not again, can I get a long back scratch?
Kristen: Of course.
Ragan: Thank you.
Matt: You're breaking your own rule. You said we weren't supposed to talk.
Planes flying overhead.
Matt: There you go. That's how they're gonna get us.
Ragan: You doin ok, Andrew?
Andrew: Nope! My daughter!
Enzo: You wanna see a picture of your daughter huh?
Matt: Hey Ragan, What degree temperature drop do you think we'll have?
Ragan: Ohh, it's already a cool night.. Maybe 10 more degrees..
Matt: That's ok.. No colder than the have not room.
Andrew stumbles a bit.. recovers.
Andrew: All these people have to wait up all night? And they can't talk? Mine just broke!!
Calls of good job, Enzo from the peanut gallery.
Ragan: For everyone who tormented me in high school, I'm on Big Brother now, and holding up in an Endurance comp.
Cheers of support from the crowd.
Brendon is precariously close to the edge. Unlike the other guys, Brendon has chosen a sideways stance.. It doesn't seem to be too comfortable.
Brendon: You gotta be kidding me.
Rachel voices her support...
6:45pm BBT - Brendon's out!
Matt: Brendon, with those size 13s, you did amazing. That's like twice the size of my feet. I'da been out a half our ago.
6:46pm It's down to Andrew, Ragan & Matt.
Lane: Remember the talk we had, Ragan. 82 percent.
Enzo: Focus guys! It only takes a second!
ON the sidelines, Brendon's upset about a second week of no real food. Enzo's hopeful the viewers voted for something good again. Rachel's whispering consolations and support.
Matt: Here we go. Cue the shaving cream.
Andrew: Oh wow! That's COLD!!!
Ragan: Hey Andrew... So no nominations, no back doors..
Matt: You guys game talkin over there?
Ragan: Matt, obviously, the same goes for you.
Matt: You're not even on my radar, kid.
On the sidelines, Brendon's beating himself up something fierce. On the Surfboards, Andrew, Matt & Ragan persist. They've just passed the 1 hour mark.
Ragan: I smoked for 18 years and quit cold turkey. I can do this.
Matt: I like the little pattern in the pond...
Ragan: They're beautiful.. Didn't they do a 3D of that..
Click! Click! Click!
Matt: Wake up!
Ragan: ♫Little Susie...
Ragan: If my sister or mom are watching, I love you.
Matt: If anyone in my family's watching, go find something better to do... I'm not making deals, but neither of you are my targets.
Ragan: It's the 11th hour.. Our backs are against the wall. He's doing for Stacy.. He's doing it for Gila..
Matt: Who're you doing it for, Ragan?
Ragan: I'm doing it for my dad.
Andrew: It's good we all have our motivation.
Andrew: What the heck was that noise?
Ragan: Something very bad is going to happen soon. This is like being in a scary movie.
Lane: Don't be scratchin..
Ragan: Lane, give us a motivational speech. Is Lane out here?
Rachel: Ragan, I'll give you a motivational speech.
Matt: Wow.. that was rude.
Ragan: I love how other seasons, the 1st few people out get money.. This season, the 1st few out get.. "not a punishment."
Britney: See how Andrew's using the area behind his board... They did say choose your boards carefully. Maybe some are shorter than others.
The deluge ends, and everyone calls out "good job."
Andrew: My mic got wet! Can I change it? (kidding)
Matt still looks very relaxed and happy. Andrew's definitely showing some signs of stress. Rachel looks like she's silently willing someone to fall... Likely Matt.
Matt: I feel like I'm really good at this, but it's a totally useless life skill... I wish there was something else I was that good at.
Ragan: This is for you, Annie.
They feel the apparatus wrench..
Matt: Shift change.
Ragan: I hope it's not the Wednesday crew.
Rachel: Good job, guys.
Britney: Good job! Your future wife is watching, Andrew.
Andrew: My daughter!
Rachel: Ragan, all the guys are watching you going, he's so wet!
Ragan: And hot!
Lots of encouragement and support from the HGs who've fallen...
Enzo reports that no food has arrived yet.
Matt: Are they gonna let the have nots eat tonight?
Enzo: I dunno.
Britney: (quietly to Rachel) I'm hungry. Am I allowed to eat?
Matt: Ask what time it is.
Ragan: Will you do like hand signals, cuz I'd prefer not to know...
Matt: (joking) 10 o clock!
Enzo: Who wants to be the Ho?
Rachel: Bein' the ho's the best.
Ragan: I like it when the water's cool. Maybe I should say I hate it when it's warm.
They compliment the comp.
Ragan: I deifnitely think this is one of the cooler comps.
Matt: And hard.
Ragan: The gift that keeps on giving.
Britney: But Andrews water would start before mine, and last longer.. but look at his gutter thing.
Kathy: Concentrate guys. Concentrate.
Matt couldn't be less phased, periodically looking into the sky... Andrew's still focusing with all his might. I have no closeup on Ragan's face, perhaps because the fight for the comp is really between Matt & Andrew.
Ragan starts asking about slop passes... Jokes about the original have nots, minus Rachel being back together, with one as HoH...
Andrew is all focus and determination. No sooner do I say it...
7:27pm BBT - Andrew is OUT of the comp.
It's down to Ragan and Matt... Now it becomes a decision of who takes the dive first??
Ragan: What are your thoughts? I don't mind being a have not.
Matt: I'm putting Kathy up... Andrew I wouldn't have, but he voted for me..
They debate the merits...
Ragan: So who are the 2 people you would put up?
Matt: Kathy and Brendon or Kathy and Rachel.
Ragan: The thing is.. If I jump off... I don't care what Brendon thinks of me, but I totally care what Rachel thinks. How would you feel about getting Rachel and Brendon out here?
Matt: I'm ok with that.
Ragan: The thing is... If you put Kathy up, no one's gonna vote her out.
Matt: Well, it is a game. I want them in the jury house.
Ragan: I'm just thinking about the way it would play out.
Matt: What if we put up Kathy and Andrew?
Ragan: Let's think about this... Britney would vot eto evict Andrew. Enzo would do whatever you asked him to do. i would vote to evict her. But here's the deal.. Brendon and Rachel would never... They would lie to our faces right now. Kathy's a 3rd to them.
Matt: How many do we need?
Ragan: 4. HoH is the tie breaker this week. Hayden and Kristen would rather see Brendon and Rachel in the house, because as long as they are, they have each others back. So.. you wanna call Andrew out here and talk to him about being the pawn? And then we can talk to Brendon and Rachel.
Matt: Ok.. how do we get them out here? We can't leave.
Ragan: I'm happy to jump down, but I don't want them to feel like I screwed them...
Matt: I'm happy to stay up here. I'm fine.
Matt: If anyone comes off the block, either Brendon or Rachel are going up.
Ragan's not thrilled, but it's at least workable. He asks Matt if they can just hang up there for 15 more minutes so it doesn't look like he completely took a dive. Matt says he's good for hours...
Matt: Could this have worked out any better??
After a few minutes of BRB, we return to see Hard rain is raining down on Ragan & Matt. Brendon and Rachel are watching from the sidelines. Brendon still looks pissed at himself.
Rachel: You guys are doing awesome!!
Still a very hard rain. Kathy, Kristen, Enzo, Lane, Hayden, Rachel & Brendon are watching from the sidelines, shouting encouragement...
Rachel is the main cheerleader, and her cheers are only for Ragan. One can't help but wonder if that might make an impact on the outcome....
Ragan begins to look a bit shaky... Matt's hugging the wall, as he has been from the beginning. Ragan is completely out of breath.
Ragan: There's a water shortage in Southern California. This is completely messed up.
Rachel: It's probably recycled water.
Ragan: If this doesn't get me laid...
Rachel: Oh you're gonna get laid like 20 times. It's like a wet tshirt contest...
Ragan: But gayer.
Britney: Good job, you guys.
Andrew: Incredible. Seriously incredible.
Ragan: What? You didn't think I had this in me?
Enzo: That's what he said.
Ragan: Sicko, Big Brother. So suggestive. You may be wondering why my military regalia's drenched... (laughing, quoting Matt's speech) Did you see Julie's face when you said that thing about the military regalia?
8:23pm BBT - We've had the lava lamp BRB screen for 20 minutes now. I feel like I'd be pretty easy to hypnotize at this point...
Feeds are Back..
Matt & Rachel
Rachel: Before you even say anything... I felt betrayed, because I did exactly what we'd talked about, and then you went...
Matt: Wat you're saying isn't totally untrue, but it's being phrased overdramatically... Out there, when you were coming at me with you did this and this and this.. And I did, but you made it sound like and maybe you go the impression of was that I was coming after you.
Rachel: Yes, I did think that. Maybe it's paranoia...
Matt: It's understandable, but where you went wrong is in breaking our deal, instead of just coming and asking me about it.
Rachel: Ok.. you're right...
Matt: What you said was true, but people were pissed off. Just like you were paranoid, I was freakin out...
Rachel: I can tell you why I called everyone in there.. I was expecting everyone to chime in...
Matt: I can tell you why they didn't.. Because everything you were accusing me of, they were all guilty of... I wish you had just come to me, instead of breaking our deal. I believe you're being honest, because you're such a bad liar.
Rachel: I just wanna play this game.. And I get it, if you do whatever you're gonna do... Ragan encouraged me to do it, but if it was someone else, I would've totally come to your defense.
Based upon this conversation & the HoH key around Matt's neck, it seems we have a new HoH in Matt.
Matt: I have no side but my own... And now I'm torn, because I truly believe that both you and Brendon would be a vote for me in the jury house... So if I don't do this, am I just pissing everyone off, and they're gonna think I'm aligned with you guys.. I told Ragan this.. Ragan, this is what I'm thinking.. ugh.. I don't know how much I can trust you to tell you.. I do have ideas about who else to put up..
Matt: I'm thinking of putting up Kathy and Andrew. PLEASE... please don't say anything.
Rachel: After listening to people lie to me all week last week, I don't want to talk to anybody. And after watching people drop during that comp...
Matt: I talked to Andrew, and he overheard the whole thing in the living room, and he told me I had his vote.. but then I heard he said the same to Monet. I'm gonna talk to him. I don't wanna blindside him. My target is Kathy. I want her out. But.. is that gonna sink me with the rest of the house, besides you and Brendon, who ALL want the 2 of you out.
Matt explains to Rachel that people stay away from them. The isolation factor they have makes them appear dangerous.
Matt: I'd be willing to make a deal with you guys, but like a real deal this time...
Rachel: I'm shocked to think that the entire house wants us out.
Matt names names. Including Ragan...
Matt: The house would just think it's weird to not have one of you up there. My greater goal though, is helping out my wife, and 2 votes in the jury house is half the votes I need to help her.
Is today the day you stop watching the other kids have fun
from the sidelines, and join in?
We're Waiting! ;)
