Big Brother 12: Friday Morning, July 16th
Wakey Wakey, Houseguests! It's time to get up and entertain the live feed viewers!
On the Agenda today: Nominations & A Have-Have Not Comp (or some comp) - The backyard is locked down. :0)
Hayden & Kristen, you're exempt. You've already done your share for this morning. ;) Get some rest, dears.
They're in separate beds now, but that's only since 7am. Pillow talk reveals that neither of them was able to sleep at all... Spark up the feeds. This is adorable. Quiet giggles...
Kristen: I wanna eat breakfast in bed.
- ***that's a cue, dear.
Kristen: Did you change your batteries yet?
Kristen: Somebody's having breakfast in bed...
BB: Matt, please come to the Diary Room.
Andrew, Brendon, Rachel
Andrew's checking in, telling them what's going on, who's nervous, etc... He confirms that Matt is *not* their ally.
Andrew: If people come up to me, I'm gonna say, look, I want Britney out of the house.
Brendon: No, don't say that.
Andrew: They know I had a fight with Britney last night...
Andrew tells them about her sniping at him.
Rachel's about to start calling people up individually, after she consults with Brendon and Andrew a bit more. Andrew lets them know that people are getting pissy about them flaunting their relationship... Brendon & Rachel tell him to proceed as planned, but not to give out any information...
Rachel: This game is tripping me out. We just need to not piss anyone off yet. We've got a lot more weeks to go.
Brendon: Like I said before, we're playing chess, they're playing checkers. They're playing one step at a time...
Rachel decides that if, after PoV, Britney or Monet come off, Matt will be the replacement nom. In case you're confused, The Nomination Ceremony happens today... They're just thinking ahead.
Brendon wants her to make sure she allots enough time so she can meet with everyone, and instill in them a sense of greatfulness that they're not going up. He also wants her to make sure that the 2nd or 3rd person she meets with is Hayden.
Rachel & Matt
Rachel: Like I said last night, you're really not a target of mine. I don't know where you got that.
Matt: From Andrew.
Rachel: That's so weird. We've had like 6 conversations this whole time.
Matt: Well, he must think he's much more aligned with you than you do, because the way he was jumping up and down was just obnoxious. So who're you thinking of putting up?
Rachel: i'm not sure yet. I wanna do what's best for the house...
Matt: Here's the thing. I do have something I wanna talk to you and Brendon about in total confidence... but I wanna talk to you about it together, soI don't have to repeat myself, and it might help your decision. I don't wanna waste more of your time..
Enzo walks in with deals on the table.. As long as he doesn't go up, she and Brendon are golden in his book. No nomination from him, if he wins HoH.
Rachel: I like you! We've been tight since the 4th of July. I wanna get people out who don't need to be here...
Enzo brings up Monet & Britney... and makes his exit. Rachel heads in to take a shower before the next appointment.
Ragan, Brendon, Monet, Kristen, Britney
Chatter about Best Buy, Macs, the iphone4, etc...
Britney says she wants to get an iphone 4 when she gets out. Brendon tells her to wait on it, because they're really good about launching things before they're ready.
Enzo & Rachel
Rachel: I think if Britney had won, Brendon and I would've been up again... Did you see them last night? Last week, when I was on the block, she barely spoke to me. If you're gonna be against me, be against me.
Rachel: What Annie did.. She didn't even hug Ragan, and Ragan was so hurt.
Enzo: That was messed up. That was such caca. I'm so glad she's on the morning show right now.. Meow Meow..
Rachel: I really like you, Enzo. Like you say, get the f'ing floaters out.
Talk turns to Kathy. He's pushing for her... and how no one wants her on their team, because of the whole have not thing. Then to Ragan... Both agree he's a straight shooter. Rachel respects him and his game.
Rachel: I think he is genuine, he is smart, he is playing the game, not just trying to attach himself and float.
Enzo agrees. They talk about loyalty and dedication. It's a very important thing to both of them. Enzo takes the opportunity to bash Annie a bit, about her overly long-winded speech... and Julie cutting her off.
This convo ends, and Enzo asks who she wants to see next, then they hug it out, and proclaim themselves, "Bojangles."
Rachel goes downstairs to change her batteries, then comes back up to HoH, this time with Britney...
Britney: Well, so what's up?
Rachel: I wanna talk to everybody, and I wanna make sure I make the right decision.. Like, what happened last week, I don't think Brendon and I deserved what we went through..
Britney: I will tell you honestly, if I had won HoH, I wouldn't have put you guys up.
Rachel: Who were you thinking?
Rachel: And who with him?
Britney: I was kinda thinking Kristen... mostly because that would guarantee Andrew going.
Britney tells Rachel about Andrew's over the top celebration when she won...
Britney: I was really happy for you. You won totally fair. Everybody had a fair chance, and you totally won. That was just super weird that Andrew was running around the yard. I can tell you, that if I win HoH next week, I will not put you and Brendon up. I agree, you guys are playing the game, and you are not my targets.
Rachel gives her BB theory - When you eliminate all the strongest players in the beginning, all the weakest make it to the end. She cites Natalie an Jordan as examples... Britney says she agrees.
Britney: I'm on the same page. I think floaters need to go. You get along so well with everyone, I have no idea what you're thinking. That's why I don't wanna say people's names... caus ei' don't know if you're friends with them.. I wanna play the game. I wanna be here. When Annie was in my ear all last week... Every time she talked to me, she said I know I'm not gonna get your vote, and I was like, you're right, you're not.
Rachel: I like you. I don't want you to go home. But there is definitely one person that I want to see leave the house... I know you don't like Andrew, but I'm not sure about him. I'm just not sure about who I want to put up against this other person yet...
Britney makes a push for Andrew.. saying if he's the saboteur, as she suspect, he may not even control his own votes...
Britney: I think, from a completely strategic standpoint, if you want to not bloody your hands, the 2nd person has to be Andrew...
Rachel: There's one person, that I'm positive, that had this person won, Brendon and I would be up on the block.. and if I put Andrew up, I can't guarantee that my target would go home.
Britney: You also have to think in terms of guys and girls. Girls tend not to win against guys in this game...
Rachel: I'm just not sure, strategically...
Britney: I just feel like, if you go after Andrew, there will be no target on your back.
Britney compliments Rachel on her positive attitude, her integrity, etc...
***So much smoke being blown up her skirt this morning, I'm wondering if Rachel will catch a cold.
Feeds 3 & 4
Rachel & Kathy
Rachel expresses that she doesn't want to backdoor anyone. She wants to put her nominees up and have them stick.
She tells Kathy that she doesn't trust Monet, and Kathy says she's right not to trust her. In Kathy's opinion, while Monet has the 10k, Britney's more mental...
They move on to discussing Andrew...
Kathy: I don't know about Andrew... It was really hard to make a call early on, and a little bit, everybody was misjudged.
Rachel: It's all about how you play the game... and for my game, I don't wanna sit there and lie to people. I don't wanna be mean... Britney wont go home over Monet.. But then, if she gets pissed, she'll be gunning for me... And I feel like the house is starting to split. Actually, I don't know if it's the house... maybe just Britney, Enzo, Monet... and then there's Brendon & I... and who knows where we fit in. (paraphrasing)
Kathy: You winning last night was the most awesome thing that coulda happened, because what Annie said wasn't true...
Kathy touches on Jeff & Jordan, and the comments that were said. They hug it out...
Kathy: Y'all didn't get frisky last night, dija?
Rachel: No.. we wanted too...
Feeds 3 & 4
Kristen's turn in HoH...
Rachel: So tell me who your 2 people were..
Kristen: For sure, Monet... The 2nd person is mor questionable.. If it were me, I'd put Britney up.
Rachel: That's who I was thinking too.
Kristen: It'll be a week of them fighting themselves.
Rachel: I think she's gonna freak out.
Kristen: Me too.
Rachel: I like Britney as a person, but not as a game player.
They agree about getting rid of floaters and mean people first. They're 100% on the same page and very happy about it.
Rachel: I didn't tell her right now, but I think I will before nominations...
Kristen: Is Brendon ok with your nominations?
Rachel: Oh yeah.
Kristen: And then, next week, I can win HoH and put whichever one didn't go home up again.
Rachel broaches the subject of an alliance between her, Brendon, Kristen and Hayden to F6...
Kristen: I would just like, for this year, for the people who genuinely deserve to be here, to be here... Anything that you tell me stays between us, completely. I am out for her now. Whatever you want, I'll vote that one out... I think the trick to this game, for me and you is: get the girls out, and then worry about the guys.
Rachel: I would like to see nothing else more than us in final 6, final 4...
Rachel references Chilltown and how they went about getting there...
Rachel: They played the game together, all 4 of them, really well, and they got all the way to final 4.
Kristen: I think with us, we'd have to not play together, and then come together later, because otherwise, people would see it happening, and come after us.
Kristen: I've been talking to Andrew to protect you guys...
Rachel: I really like you, Kristen.
Kristen: Thanks. I really like you too. I would like to be in the final 7 with you.. With us as the only girls.. and maybe Kathy. She's had such a rough time. I think we should give her a chance, completely...
Rachel touches on Hayden. Kristen reassures her that he's good with them.
Rachel: I respect his game play. I respect him as a person.
Back to Britney...
Kristen: I just feel like Britney's in the mix some where.. If she's not the saboteur, she's one of the friends.
Rachel: As far as Monet goes, if she would've won, she would've put me up for sure... I think they're dangerous to us. I think they're dangerous to our game. I think they're in Enzo's ear...
Kristen: Yes! Yesterday, Enzo was like, you should go spy on Britney... I don't know if you notice, but she gives me evil looks.
On to Lane... Both like him, but not so sure about trusting him. They put him into Britney and Monet's camp. Even now, he's sitting on the HoH landing playing chess with her.
Rachel: I don't think they deserve to make it to the finals. I think they're just so dirty with this game.
Kristen: So do I.
They move on to the idea of trust in the game, and how both Monet and Britney are completely not trustworthy.
Kristen: You won a good week. You don't have to cause any drama. No one's gonna be shocked with your choices...
Rachel: I've only told you and Brendon, and I wanna tell Hayden... I'm not gonna lie... I'd rather talk to you and Hayden and Brendon than anyone else in the house.
They share a laugh...
10:57am - Brendon enters the HoH.
Brendon: Are you showering?
Rachel: Yeah, we were showering together.
Brendon: That's what I was imagining...
Kristen tells Brendon that she'd be doing the same thing Rachel's doing, if she were HoH. Rachel says she's nervous about talking to Monet, and Kristen gives her good advice...
Kristen: Just listen to her then.
They wrap it up. Kristen takes off... Rachel asks her to send Matt up, since she and Brendon are both there now.
But first... Lane
Lane: So what's on your mind?
Rachel goes on about how she and Brendon deserve to be there. Lane says, No doubt.
Rachel: I think we need to make an example this season. Final 7 needs to be competitors.
This is an easy conversation. He's not a target, but he's also not a confidant, so it's a general, friendly conversation about themselves and the game. Lane bucks for himself just a little bit, when he says that she should keep people in the game that are going to protect her, and are strong enough and capable enough to do so.
Rachel tells Lane that he's so far off her radar, she can't see herself or Brendon putting him up at all. She asks him to confirm that she and Brendon are safe with him at least until the jury house.
Lane: You have nothing to worry about with me.
Monet & Rachel
Monet says this part of the game makes her so nervous, she doesn't even know what to say. Rachel is very upfront with her.
Rachel: I just wanna tell you, I do have a couple people in mind, and you're probably one of them.
To her credit, Monet takes it in stride and doesn't miss a beat. She remains very pleasant, as she tells Rachel that she was not her target this week, Andrew was.
They move on to the floater talk, and the desire to have season 12 be the season of strength.
Rachel: The last 4 seasons have been floaters...
Monet: It's just the history of Big Brother. The floaters get passed over, until all the competitors are gone, and there's nothing left but floaters. I appreciate you being honest.
Rachel: I don't wanna lie to you...
***For the record, while I do not enjoy Britney & Monet's mean girls routine - ripping everyone apart, all the time - when they're together, I do appreciate both of them separate from each other.
Downstairs... the HGs just found another saboteur beeping thing. They still haven't found the one that's hidden by the camera though...
Lockdown is still in effect. Enzo's pumped for a comp. Monet is already out of the HoH and back downstairs.
Hayden & Rachel
Feeds 3 & 4
Again, like the conversation with Kristen, this is bonding, not a plea. Rachel tells Hayden that she feels he saved her with his choice to put Annie up against her as the renom.
Rachel: Because you did that for me, you would not be my target, ever. Like, I would take you off the block (if I won a PoV and you were up).
Hayden: And I appreciate that, especially considering the position you're in now.
They move to talking about alliances... Hayden thinks it's not a good idea at this point in the game...
Rachel: I think if you, me, Brendon & Kristen were a team, everyone in the house would be against us. But, like I told Kristen, the 4 of us would be fierce competition.
Rachel brings up AllStars... The 2 showmances at the end...
Rachel: Literally, single-handedly, they took everyone else out. That's huge.
Hayden fesses up to Rachel that he really cares for Kristen, but he doesn't want the two of them to become targets because of it, so they're keeping it in check. In closing, he asks that she just please keep Kristen off...
Rachel: Matt came up to me and said that he was really paranoid about going up. He wasn't even on my radar, but just saying that, he made me suspicious..
Hayden: This is going to be a really stressful week for you. Trust me. Everyone's gonna be wanting to make an alliance with you.. make deals..
She moves on to Andrew, and says she likes the guy. Hayden says he does too. They touch on the life long friends and both say all they know is it's not them. Rachel tells Hayden that both Monet and Britney threw Kristen under the bus, saying she was a floater and needed to be nominated.. alongside Andrew.
Hayden: I would never come up and say, this is who you have to put up. And Brendon's a good guy, so if you feel you want guidance, he'll be helpful.
Rachel: Brendon's a smart guy, and/but he doesn't want to tell me what to do.
Hayden: Also smart.
They rehash last week and what made Hayden put her and Brendon up... Then move on to Britney and Monet...
Rachel: Then you have Britney, who I feel is mentally mind-f'ing people... She is playing the game, but not in a good way.. but maybe that's the only way she can play, because she's not really a competitor.
Hayden: Britney has been in the center of all the drama that has happened in the house.
They touch on Annie, and Hayden says that he called her up to hear her side of the story, and he just found her to be lying. He shares with Rachel that both Annie and Britney ran and told each other what he'd told each of them in confidence... Every time, Britney was in the middle of it all.
Rachel: The only reason I would want to get Monet out over Britney is that she is a stronger competitor...
***Which is it, hon? Do you want the competitors in or out?
Rachel: But then there's Britney, and I come from the same place as her... sorority, pageants.. but I can see so clearly what she's doing. She's such an instigator. (paraphrasing) Right now, she and Monet are best friends. If they go up on the block together, I don't see that sticking.
Both of them think there will be drama with the two of them on the block.
Hayden confides to Rachel that he is very attracted to Kristen.
Is today the day you stop watching the other kids have fun
from the sidelines, and join in?
We're Waiting! ;)
