Big Brother 12: Saturday Morning, July 17th
Wakey Wakey, Houseguests! It's 7:45am!! Time to get up and entertain the live feed viewers!
On your agenda today: The Power of Veto Comp! But first, you'll have to pick and see who's playing along with you...
Britney & Monet, the time has come for you to fight for your lives in the game! Just how badly do you want it?
Well, now's your chance to prove it!
See, you're going to have to win this for yourselves, because at the moment, there are very few, if any, BB12 HGs willing to take you off the block at the risk of having one of their friends or alliance members backdoored.
That's kinda why you were nominated together. In case there was any doubt.
True, you've both done a stellar job of guilting Rachel with your tears, and you both possess manipulation skills galore, but are they enough? I don't think so... Time will tell.
Ragan, Kathy & Rachel
They've been awake for 5 minutes, and Ragan already has the girls in stitches.
If he gets to play, Ragan really wants to win the PoV. He hasn't won anything yet,
BB: Ragan, are you wearing someone else's microphone?
Ragan jumps up, and holds his mic up to the camera for them to see. The girls crack up.
Ragan tells BB he's being rude.
Rachel: Well, Ragan, if you don;t get picked, I would love for you to host it. Would you like to host?
Ragan: I would love to!
BB: Houseguests, I said it's time to get up for the day!
Rachel: It's the bad kids downstairs. We're all up!
Rachel invites them to sleep up there with her all week. Brendon is a Have Not, after all.. (though she doesn't mention that)
Ragan: I wonder what the competition's gonna be...
Rachel: I feel so bad for Britney and Monet right now... It's a crazy game.
Ragan: All I can say is... I think it's sweet that you do, it's just.. It's a natural part of the game, and it's natural to feel compassion for people on the block.
Rachel: And you're right.. And as much as I feel bad for them, I'm glad to not be on the block again myself, and I'm so glad to not be a have not! Do you guys wants espressos? Do you drink coffee?
They begin discussing the order and types of of comps in past seasons...
Ragan: Power of Veto tend to be like, skill based.
Have Not Room
We check in briefly downstairs, but just long enough to see that Britney and Matt are awake.
Back to HoH with the peppy and perky... Speculation about the comp...
Matt rings the HoH doorbell and comes in to join his fellow former Have Nottie happy campers. He's being social, but he's also very much playing the game - being a friend to keep himself off the block, in the event that either Monet or Britney win the PoV.
Matt tells them about what's going on downstairs - "Britney's being real bitchy."
Rachel: Well, not everyone can be have notties. They're just have nots.
Matt, Britney, Lane, Brendon, Britney, Hayden
Feed me, Seymour!
Hayden's frying eggs and the new Have Nots are complaining about their existence.
Kathy & Rachel
Kathy's telling Rachel about Monet's poor behavior towards her yesterday. Monet accused her of saying negative things to Rachel about her...
Here's the thing, Rachel told Monet that's what went down, during Monet's HoH meeting yesterday. Monet didn't have to be too cunning to get an admission out of Rachel.
Rachel: I didn't even know you guys were friends, and when she told me that, I was really surprised.
Kathy: Most of the times, the talking was very superficial, but it was only when someone else was busy.
Rachel: I mean, I really like you and Kristen. I feel like I can talk to you guys, but it sucks that there are people you really can't talk to.
Kathy: It's cattiness.. and it's unfortunate.
Rachel: Your key was 2nd for a reason.. I so wish we could call her out. It's not necessary, and all it's gonna do is cause more problems in the house...
Kathy: And there's so many more days til Thursday... It's weird that she came up here and said something stupid like that.
Rachel: I didn't even have to say anything to you and you came to me. I knew right away that she was lying to me...
***Didn't look like it.
Kathy: People are funny...
They come back to the $10,000.
Rachel: I mean, come on, you've got 10 thousand dollars in your pocket and you're being mean to people.. When she came up, all she said was, "If you don't put me up, I'm not coming after you," and I was like, "Yeah, right."
Kathy & Rachel, cont'd
Talk about Britney and Monet continues... Kathy's basically reinforcing how miserable and rude they've both been they've both been since the get-go. After another few minutes, Rachel tells Kathy how much both she and Brendon love her and want her to be here. They have a hug, tidy and make the bed together.
Next up: Breakfast!
Lane, Matt, Ragan, Hayden
Happy Chatter. They're teasing Matt a little about his sleeping stance: Pillows over his head, bottom half exposed.
Ragan: That's usually how guy like me!
Ragan: Yeah, let's cover up that pretty little face of yours...
Happy chatter continues. Rachel pops her head in for a quick hello and a laugh. Then it's back to the guys again. A little grumbling about being woken so early for no apparent reason, since they haven't picked players yet, then back to pleasantries.
They inquire again as to Andrew's whereabouts and Hayden says Andrew was up praying before the alarm.
Kathy, Britney & Monet
I've come in on their conversation already in progress.
Britney: Are you ok?
Kathy: Well, it hurt my feelings...
Britney hugs Kathy...
***In case you're keeping score, last night Monet and Britney had a hate fest about Kathy where they indicated they wanted to "rip out her fake eyelashes and smack the wrinkles off her face."
Monet: (starts to speak and we get the BRB screen)
We have 5 minutes of BRB, then we return to primping in the bathroom. Conventional wisdom suggests that the HGs have been told that they'll be picking PoV players soon...
Kathy & Britney
Britney: Well, I just don't want you to think it was Rachel, cuz it wasn't.
Kathy: Well, people have different morals and stuff.. I was thinkin' then, when it was all going on that it was the group..
Britney: I'm not upset with you about that. I'm the one who pretty much... I just want you to know it was not Rachel. It was somebody else who told me that you said something.
Britney explains she's been a teary, PMSing emotional mess for the past 24 hours.
Kathy: So there's someone else throwin me under the bus..
Britney: Well people are throwin me under the bus left n right... I just can't tell you. I'm just really, really sorry. I shouldn't have taken anybody's word for it. I'm really sorry.
Kathy: You know, it's best. Whoever said it has some evilness going on with them... That's how this game is. I didn't realize how brutal it gets.
9:11am BBT - BRB Screen...
9:17am BBT - Still BRB Screen. Generally, we get Trivia when something like a comp or ceremony of any kind is going on... hm hm hm.
9: 36 AM BBT - Still BRB Screen...
Is today the day you stop watching the other kids have fun
from the sidelines, and join in?
We're Waiting! ;)
