Big Brother 12: Saturday 5:00pm-9:45pm BBT
Good afternoon, BB Lovers! Wow, what a day on the feeds & these HGs just keep going! In case you've been out and about, here's a quick run-down on the late morning & early afternoon:
- Rachel, Monet, Britney, Lane, Hayden & Enzo all played for Veto.
- Britney won the PoV.
- To avoid conflict with the house, Brendon offered Rachel to put him up as the pawn. She immediately & adamantly declined.
- The scramble to avoid becoming the ReNom Pawn has begun.
- Britney is bucking for Andrew to go up & guaranteeing/lying to Rachel and Brendon about who her next target would be.
- Enzo is bucking for Kathy to go up, and threatening to go after Brendon & Rachel if he goes up as the ReNom.
- Matt and Lane are currently the front runners for the ReNom position with Rachel & Brendon.
OK.. moving right along. On the Showmance front, Brendon & Rachel are still going strong, and Hayden and Kristen are gaining momentum.
After a brief snuggle up in the HoH Room, Brendon gets busted for snoozing in a real bed, so he and Rachel head down to the Have Not Room to hang out with the common folk. They chill in there together with Enzo for a few minutes, then...
BB: Rachel, please come to the Diary Room.
Britney enters, makes pleasant small talk with Rachel on her way out, then lies down in her cot and talks with Brendon and Enzo.
Britney: I feel bad for Rachel having to put somebody up.
Brendon: It sucks. I felt like an a-hole too.
They settle down for naptime...
Monet & Matt
Monet wants to get Andrew nominated as a pawn. Matt's idea is that everyone should threaten to put Brendon and Rachel up as a pawn, if they put one of them up as a pawn. He did exactly that. The only way for them to escape that, in Matt & Monet's minds is to nominate either Kathy or Andrew... and they need to convince Rachel and Brendon of this.
Kathy comes in. Matt leaves.
Kathy discovers the yearly problem: Ants. With Monet's help, she starts spraying and trying to find the source. Andrew comes in and decides it's a garbage only problem.
Matt, Lane, Hayden
They've decided it'll almost be good for one of them to go up, because then they can say Brendon has to go up as the pawn when one of them wins HoH, and they can vote him out.
They congratulate themselves about how well they're keeping the Brigade a secret.
Matt: Does Kristen suspect anything?
Hayden: No, not a clue.
***I'm just getting back into this, and my fingers aren't flying as fast as they should, but the Brigade is starting to warm to the idea of one of them going up. It's a gimme for them. They stay. They definitely have the votes. And then they get to put the screws to Brendon as payback.
They leave HoH...
Brendon & Hayden
Hayden: I just wanna make sure we're all on the same page. You guys gotta do what's best for you.. Whoever you wanna put up, you have my vote.
Brendon: Who would you put up?
Hayden: I would put up... Well who are you guys thinking?
Brendon: We're thinking about Matt... and (no mic on?!)
Hayden: He's purely a pawn though..
Brendon: Oh yeah!
Hayden: You gonna tell him first?
Brendon: Yeah, definitely. No matter who goes up, Monet's gone. We just cannot have Britney win HoH next week...
Hayden: That's best for the whole house.
Brendon: The only ones who aren't sure are Enzo and Lane, but... I can't believe we f'in lost that dude..
Hayden: The time was f'd. When I saw his time, I thought for sure he had it.
Brendon: The whole reason for Matt is how weird he's been acting ever since she won HoH.
Hayden: Yeah, that's what I told Rachel to lookout for.. changes in the way people treat you...
Talk turns to the perceived floaters. Ragan's name comes up, as does Kathy's...
Brendon reconfirms that Matt is looking like the ReNom as of right now, and that's primarily because he will be guaranteed to vote.
Hayden: If anybody asks me, I'll just say you're thinking about putting up a weaker player.
Brendon: Or just say we're not even sure yet.
Hayden: Ok, buddy.. Lemme get outta here before anybody...
Brendon: Ok, man.
Hayden goes downstairs. Passes through...
Hayden: Dude, man the pool looks delicious.
He continues on to the Taj room, and lays down next to Kristen. He fills her in on his conversation with Brendon, including the notion that it'll make it easier to put Brendon up next week... then back to showmancing the Kristen.
Hayden: I was hoping you were gonna be in my bed when I came in, but this is ok.. The smaller the better.
Kristen: I kinda wanna cut your hair.
Hayden: I kinda wanna cut your hair.
Kristen: Yeah? how?
Hayden: bowl cut.
Kristen: I'd shave my head if I had to.
Hayden: in here?
Hayden: I wouldn't.
Kristen: They're probably gettin' ideas now. I've always had long hair...
etc., etc., flirt flirt flirt...
Hayden: I'm glad you're not the saboteur.
Kristen: Shut up! You knew I wasn't the saboteur..
Hayden: For like the 1st few days, becaus eyou were so quiet..
Kristen: That's so mean! That's horrible..
Hayden: Because you were so mysterious... I mean, you're not now. Now that you talk to me.
Kristen: I don't mean to be that way. Its just the way that I am.
Hayden: It's a good thing. You're not a typical cookie cutter.
Kristen: I don't think anyone in here's a typical cookie cutter.
Kristen rests her hand on his back for a moment.. then retracts...
This is ongoing and on Feeds 3 & 4
Feeds 1 & 2
Monet & Rachel
Monet: I don't get how I'm such a threat to you...
Rachel: You are physical, and I felt like you don't like me, and you can sit there and say that's not true, but you know how it is in this situation, and I feel like you're gunning for me and want to break up me and Brendon. I'm not really sure who you talk game to, but definitely you and Britney are people that are coming after me and Brendon, and that's a big deal. I know what it feels like to be in your position. I feel like if you or Britney had won HoH, that Brendon and I would've gone up.
Monet: I can say with confidence that you were not my target. I think you know who I would've put up.. I know you hear about showmance, showmance, but for me, that's not an issue. I know the two of you are huge threats, as individuals. You're competitors. You would've won the last pov if Brendon didn't have that 13 letter word. Yes, you guys do have a showmance, but for me, at this point in the game, that's not an issue. What's an issue for me is having people in the game who you don't know where they stand.
This conversation is ongoing, and Monet is making some good points, but the fact remains that she's lying through her teeth and Rachel knows it... I do not believe she will be moved. Monet was, after all, her target. The only pain of it is in having to put up a renom.
Rachel: I'm at the point where I'm so torn about putting someone up and trusting that the house will vote them out, because you and Britney are a force...
Monet launches into her bid for putting Andrew up as the renom. Just as she does, Ragan rings the bell... Ragan comes in, and Rachel asks him for some more alone time with Monet... They talk briefly about working out later, then he leaves.
Rachel: I'm sure you know that if I put Andrew up, he'll go home over you. Andrew's not with us, but he's not after us... I need to put that into consideration.
Monet: But who is he with? How can you be sure?
Talk turns to Andrew's celebration over her HoH win. Then they make some potential headway... Monet makes her promises... Rachel guarantees her that the conversation they're having is strictly between the two of them, not Brendon.
If Rachel puts up someone that will go home over Monet, Monet guarantees Rachel she wouldn't nominate or go after her or Brendon until after they've all made the jury house.
Rachel: Where would you see the next 3 weeks going? If you stay and Andrew goes. Who goes next?
Rachel: See, I like Kristen.
Monet: I don't know where she stands.
Rachel: I don't either.
Monet: Personally, I feel like, if she had her way, she would get the girls out.
Rachel: I know that her goal is to get out the people who are against her...
Talk turns to Matt.
Monet: For a while, I thought he was the saboteur.
Rachel: Me too! I'll tell you.. At this point, I am really considering putting Andrew up, and if I do, he goes home, and then what? I feel like it's gonna be me and Brendon on the block week after week.
Rachel: I really like her..
Monet: I do too, but she wont ever win anything... so you wont be able to count on her if you need her to pull through.
Rachel: I almost feel like it's better to have people who are against you than people who are just gonna always go along with everyone else. For my game, I don't wanna backstab. I don't wanna backdoor someone.
Monet: That's why Andrew worries me.. I feel like he'll always try to go where the power is.. Like he wont be loyal.
Rachel: I'm not surte about that either... I'm scared that there's 3 more weeks (til seq).. There are so many people that I don't know where they stand.. and every week, power shifts. Every week. And if power shifts to your side of the house.
Monet: But it might not. And he's strong.
Rachel: But it's just him and I.. we don't have anyone else.
Monet: I mean, I don't have an alliance with anyone.. If it was gonna be with someone, then obviously right now, that would be Britney.. but if it were going to be with anyone else, I'd want it to be wit strong people... I'm sorry we didn't talk more before...
Rachel: I am too... Who knows.. You might have won HoH and had Andrew on the block (dream on). I'm glad Britney won PoV....
Ongoing... Talk turns to Brendon and how much she cares for him and how this is not a showmance and will continue outside the house.
Rachel: I'm in a position where I don't want anything to break us up, and at least we should both make it to the jury house...
Monet: I think the thing that scares people is that they know you're in an obvious alliance..
Rachel: I know. And they know we're playing the game together. It's not even game play. I genuinely care about him so much, I would do anything for him. Inside or outside the house... And I feel bad for bringing his game into question because of this (paraphrasing).
***ok, they're on a loop now. It does sound like Monet's making headway though...
Monet: I can guarantee you that if I stay, I wont come after you or Brendon, and neither will Britney. If it's you & Brendon and Britney & I, I feel like she and I can get Lane & Enzo. That's 6 people. That's huge control.
They don't know when the PoV ceremony is, but they think it's tomorrow. Rachel tells Monet she is going to consider this... Rachel doesn't want to piss anyone off, and Andrew is the only option for that.
Backyard Couch - Monet & Britney are talking about the possibility of Monet staying.. then they start a bit of Jedi training.. Hunger cuts that short, and they go in for protein shakes.
Feeds 3 & 4
Backyard Hammock - Brendon & Rachel - Game, Game, Game - Who's going up? Considering all possibilities.
Brendon reminds her not to trust anyone and to eliminate the number of variables... Reduce the things she's not sure about. When it comes to Monet, she's a girl who has no options right now. Rachel wants to know if Enzo, specifically, is coming after them. She's concerned that people will perceive the two of them as making deals with everyone.
In a nutshell...
Brendon: I just don't wanna see you get played, and I feel like these girls are really close to playin' you right now.
***Amen, hallelujah. His brain still works.
After a few minutes of the lava lamp, we come back to happy chatter in the kitchen area between Matt, Monet, Kathy and Rachel... Brendon joins them...
Going outside to see if there's any game talk in the backyard... Enzo's jogging, Andrew and Ragan are lifting weights, and we see what remains of the comp.
Hayden's in the pool, looking lovely, but little Skippy trigger finger cuts away before I can get a cap.
Kristen & Rachel
Rachel: Right now, I wanna avoid the house, because I feel like it's just girls trying to take each other out. Like Britney and Monet are definitely fighting for each other. They both want me to put up Andrew to keep Monet here.
Kristen: I don't trust them at all.
Rachel: We have to think like chess players... but what do we do?
Kristen: I say we take Monet out this week, Britney out next. I would say Andrew would want her out too, so that's 5 of us already.
Rachel: I don't think Britney's going home next week. I just think it's gonna be really hard to get her out. I just have a feeling.
Kristen: From the guys that I talked to, nobody's supporting her 100%, and Monet's the closest person to her, and she's gone. She's GONE. Here's what I'd do if I was HoH next week. Id' put up Britney and someone else, and during my speech, I'd say, I'm sorry person X, you're a pawn. I want Britney out. SO then the whole house would know.
Rachel: But who would person x be? That's my concern right now... There's one person..
Rachel: Yeah.. and there's another
Kristen: I wouldn't put Lane up, because he's too physically strong, and he'd come after Brendon. I'd maybe put Ragan up, because he's closer to people, and he could convince them.
Rachel: I don't wanna put Ragan up, because I'm way close with him and I don't wanna piss him off... I don't wanna put Matt up, because he's way close with Ragan. I don't wanna put Enzo up, because he would be way pissed, and he'll gun for us. And what if Enzo wins next week? Who's he gonna go after?
Kristen: I think Enzo'll go after 2 guys.
Rachel: I don't want him to go after Brendon (good luck) and I'm sure you don't want him to go after Hayden...
Kristen: I'd be in the same position you're in right now..
Rachel asks Kristen where Hayden stands with Enzo. Kristen says she doesn't think there's anything there.
Rachel: I'm scared to put up Andrew, because what if he goes home? Then it's a waste.
Kristen: I think bottom line is, this week, Monet has to go. Bottom line, Monet has to go. We have to be smart enough to knock them out early, Rachel.
Rachel: I think you're right.
This conversation is ongoing, supportive and friendly... Rachel is sincere in her devotion to Kristen in the house. Kristen, I'm not so sure about, but damn, if she's insincere, she's very good.
Rachel starts counting votes for Andrew... She thinks he'd actually have 6 to stay. Kristen thinks Andrew would come after her if she did that.
Kristen: It's your call, and regardless, we're gonna get Monet out this week. So whatever you feel comfortable with, go for it. When f'in Britney won, I just about snapped. Of all people.
Rachel: It's crazy... So, let's think.
They go back to vote counting... If Andrew goes up: Kristen, Hayden, Ragan, Kathy, Brendon & Matt - as a thank you for not being put up as the pawn.
Kristen: It might be good to put up Matt too, just to give Britney a jolt that the 2 people she's hangin gout with are both up on the block.
Rachel: uch. I hate that I have to change the nominations.
Kristen & Rachel, Kathy joins
Game talk regarding the renoms continues... then they move on to theorizing about Monet and Kristen as the two friends. Then back to who the ReNom should be... Rachel tells them what Matt said about being careful with that, because the pawn might turn around and come after you next week. He meant it as a veiled threat regarding him. She took it as friendly advice, and she agrees.
7:15pm BBT - Brendon joins the group of them, and the talk about putting Andrew up as the ReNom pawn persists... The girls leave to get Ragan and Matt for them, and Brendon and Rachel discuss it privately. Rachel thinks that putting him up will have the least repercussions...
Ragan and Matt join Rachel & Brendon...
Rachel: I wanna make sure that no matter what, no matter who I put up, you'll vote Monet out... no matter what. If I put up Andrew, and he goes home, that leaves Monet & Britney together.
Ragan: Let me be explicit, because of who I'm with.. My loyalty lies with the 3 of you, and to a lesser extent with Hayden. You can count on me 100%. No matter what.
Rachel: I just wanna make sure, because my other 2 options are you, Matt, and Kathy.
Matt: How did you come up with those 3?
Rachel: I think if I put you up, the vote would be 9-0, but I don't wanna do that to you, because you're my friend. Same with Kathy.
Rachel runs through all the possibilities...
Matt: I think you guarantee yourself a lot more, if you put any of those other people up instead of Andrew.
Matt gives a really squidgy answer about him making a guarantee... They call him on it gently, and he acquiesces that he would vote her out.
Ragan counts the votes again. Hayden, Kristen, Ragan, Kathy...
Matt: Lemme think about this, but I think you would have a better chance of getting her out if you did put me up.
Rachel: But I don't wanna do that to you.
Matt: But Andrew has had so much animosity toward him since day one.
Rachel: Matt, you wanna stay off the block.
Matt: I wanna make sure things work out.
Ragan: Why would you make more sense than Andrew?
Matt: Because Andrew has just been surrounded by weird vibes since we got here... 3-4 days to fester.. Too much can happen..
Rachel: Thing is..
Brendon: If we were to put you up as a pawn, would you put us up as pawns later on? Because if we go up as pawns...
Matt: you guys are toast.
Rachel: I don't want you to be up there.. It's awful... I think it would be 9-0, but what if it's 8-1 or 7-2... If Monet and Britney campaign hard enough...
They count the votes again..
Matt: I'm ok going up. I think it works better for you.
Brendon: What do you want in return?
Matt: Protection... and I want you to make it perfectly clear during the speech that I'm the pawn.. and I want to pretend I'm blindsided.
Matt: Let me campaign. Blindside me, I prefer. Make it explicit I'm a pawn. An dplease don't let me go home.
Rachel: I wont.. But I don't even want you to be in that position.
Brendon: He just wants to go up so he can win the 500,000.
Matt: Oh, sh*t, I didn't even think about that! The 2nd week nom always wins. When are the noms.
Rachel: Tomorrow (they think). I don't feel comfortable doing this. I want you to dig.
Matt: I'll dig, and I'll get back to you early tomorrow morning or late tonight...
Rachel: I want you to know that I really wanted you to come up here, because I wanted to make sure you'd vote Monet home and keep Andrew.
Matt: I want you to know, Stacy's screaming at her live feeds right now.
Brendon and Rachel make it very clear that there can be no pawn payback, becaus ethey wouldn't survive it. Matt says that it understood, and he agrees, and that had they actually blindsided him, it would be different, but this is his idea.
Ragan counts votes again... He's not positive they can count on Kathy to vote Monet out.
Ragan: Here's my headspace with it. This is a game you play moment to moment. Annie case in point: 1st key out of the box, 1st one home. I think there are some people who think long term, and some who think short term. I am a bigger picture person.. I'm looking at people for who they are..
Brendon: I kind of agree with Matt on Andrew, because if he's on the block, he might flip out and drive people crazy, and end up going home...
Matt: He's an emotional clusterf--k. Not right now, but lemme use your room sometime for a pvt convo with Hayden, Enzo and Lane.. and that'll give me a better idea...
Matt: I just wanna get those 3 guys up here and have a little powwow.. And again, just keep this between us...
Rachel: What are you gonna talk to them about?
Matt: Good point... if it's supposed to be a surprise...
Rachel: What if I get them up here..
***And we're dancing in circles. All that's important now is how Matt spins this to the Brigade.
Matt leaves the HoH. Conversation continues between Brendon, Rachel and Ragan.
Matt, Britney, Monet, Enzo
Matt: I'm just getting weirded out, because I don't know what to do... I've got my fingers crossed...
Matt head to the Taj and tells Lane & Hayden of the plan... all details included. Both guarantee him his safety 100%. Matt tells them to tell Enzo when they can. Kathy and Kristen enter amidst the whispering, which stops abruptly.
Matt & Lane
Lane guarantees him his safety and congratulates his brilliance...
OMG!! Pick a feed, any feed! Just gettem! It's spinning my brain!
Feed 3 & 4
Brendon & Rachel
Rachel saw right through it! Good for her! She's explaining it to Brendon, how Matt is setting himself up perfectly - and setting them up for vengeance from the guys...
She's bucking again to put Andrew up. She explains to him that it splits the house: Enzo, Matt, Lane, Hayden. Boom. She doesn't know they're already together, but she put it together mighty quick.
Brendon concedes that maybe she's right about Matt... and he knows they can't trust him.
Rachel: Plus, if we put up Andrew, no one knows we're in an alliance with him, and we have the votes to keep him.
8:06pm BBT - Andrew comes in.
Andrew: I just need to update you on something... You talked to Matt & Ragan very recently, and as soon as they came down, I saw Matt conversing with Hayden and Lane, and as soon as they saw me, they shut down.
Rachel & Brendon offer to fill him in.
Andrew: When I walked in, I've never heard anyone shut down so fast. I'm just telling you...
Brendon: Here's the thing.. Monet has to go home...
Andrew: Ok, Monet goes home.
Rachel: But we have to put someone up next to her... Is there any way you can wait outside for 10 minutes...
Rachel: No matter what, I want you to know, Monet's going home.
Andrew: I feel where this is going, and I'm ok with it, I understand it, because it puts eyes off us being aligned. They will send me home. They will take me out so easily. I have no hard feelings if you have to use me as a pawn.. Don't worry about it. It's the game. Just know though.. if there's someone telling you they're gonna vote for me to stay, it's more than possible that they're playing for the other side.
Andrew gives them the privacy to discuss it more... Rachel argues more for putting Andrew up...
Rachel: But Andrew makes a good point, that they could switch the votes...
Brendon: But if you don't trust Matt, Hayden and Lane, then this makes sense.
Rachel: What I don't trust is putting Matt up, because it gives them the excuse to go after us.
Brendon: My biggest fear is losing Andrew... I would feel like a f'in asshole, and it would come back to haunt us.
Rachel: But I think I just f'd it up by telling Matt...
Brendon: No.. play these girls. F them. You get these girls back up here and you tell them...
Brendon tries explaining it, but stumbles.
Brendon: This is so f'in complicated! You haven't discussed Matt with Ragan, have you?
Rachel: No, but this is gonna make Ragan understand Matt more... Because NO ONE offers themselves up as a pawn.
They count votes again... Hayden, Kristen, Brendon, Ragan, Kathy...
Brendon: If you can f'in lock down those votes by tonight, we're golden.
Rachel: I think that no matter what, Enzo will vote for Monet to go home, because she won the 10,000 dollars...
8:15pm BBT - This conversation is ongoing with Brendon and Rachel on Feeds 3 & 4. I strongly encourage you to view it on flashback (on the feeds), if you've missed it live tonight. I'm getting more that the average bear, but there is just so much going on, it's impossible to get it all.
8:20pm BBT - Brendon's frustration with the game is growing... Rachel's head is on straight.
8:50pm BBT - Brendon's slop brain can't take any more game talk tonight. He just wants to snuggle and kiss now... Rachel's brain is still go go go! She's teasing him about having to win for the both of them this week...
Brendon: I'm f'in 6'3" and sleeping in a 5' chair. And now he's just being adorable..
***Speaking of showmances, I wonder how much longer Hayden & Kristen will be able to hold out without a kiss...
Rachel: I think Matt's trying to be a combination of Ronnie and Dan... Brendon, you have to expect the unexpected, and when we start to think we're safe, we're not. Putting Andrew up, we're safe, because if Monet stays, we can tell her we did it for her.
Andrew: Just do it.
Rachel: Do what?
Andrew: Put me up.
Andrew: I wanna see where my standing is in the house. They're in there whispering now.. But if it works, we're great.
Rachel: Andrew, I don't think I'm gonna put you up.
Andrew: OK, great.. Whatever you wanna do.
Andrew bails and Rachel gets very angry with Brendon for telling Andrew her plans.
Rachel: I don't wanna tell anyone what we're gonna do. This is between us.
Brendon: OK. I don't wanna talk game anymore. I'm not talking about any game with anyone else. You don't have anything to worry about. I'm sorry. I thought you were going to say something to him. I didn't know you weren't saying anything to anybody, so now I know that.
Brendon's not very keen on being reprimanded. He's putting his clothes on, pissed she yelled at him. And he's out. And Rachel's sitting on her bed, alone and pissed.. and very near tears.. no, in tears.
The bell rings.
Rachel: You can come in.
No one does. She begins to cry in earnest. Hands over her eyes.
Then she puts herself beneath the covers and bawls.
Brendon's back, apologizing and recommitting to Rachel as a person and a partner in under 5 minutes.... and she to him.
Lane & Matt
Working out & Talking about Ragan...
Matt: I'm fine voting him out, I just can't put him up... Who would you put up if you won, Ragan?
Lane: I like Ragan a lot, but...
Matt: Yeah, it's game play.
Talk turns to Monet & Britney... and abs.
Matt: Yeah, I think Ragan is the only one who might possibly go for you. Yeah, if I win it, I think I'd put up __ and __ and backdoor Brendon.
Lane's plan is to backdoor Brendon too. Game talk and abs continue, though not simultaneously. They do a set, then conspire, a set, conspire...
Matt: It's perfect, and stupid Rachel didn't even ask why.
Lane: She's just happy not to have to make a decision on her own.
Matt: That's why I told her it had to look like a blindside...
Matt & Rachel
Matt goes up to reconfirm with ("Stupid") Rachel. She plays him like a fiddle.
