Big Brother 12: Sunday Morning in the BB12 House
Matt's out on the couch, and Lane's been up and to the bathroom. As soon as anyone starts talking, to us on the live feeds, or to each other, I'll start recapping...
Matt doesn't disappoint.
Matt: Good morning, America. Nice day we're having today, I think. It's a good day to be put up on the block... Good day, indeed.
Matt goes into the house for a minute, comes back out and hoses the pool a little more, back in for coffee, then some sit time on the couch.
9:20am BBT - BRB Screen.. Wakey Wakey time? It's awfully early for a Sunday Wake up. Perhaps Rachel is right about the PoV Ceremony being today... But, if that were the case, BB would generally have it up on the screen in the living room, and/or someone from production would give them a heads up about getting camera ready, for those who are so inclined.
9:26am BBT - Yup! The HGs are up. We have bathroom primpers and backyard snoozers...
Brendon: My arms are numb.
Matt gets up and heads inside, and straight up to HoH. He knocks, no answer. With an "Oh, F**k," he sits down on the HoH landing to wait.
BB: Kathy, Rachel, please put on your microphones.
Matt knocks on the HoH door again and lets himself in...
Matt: Hey, can I hang up here a bit? I feel like I'm gonna throw up, and I don't wanna do that down there in front of everyone.
Rachel: Matt, I want you to know, as a courtesy to Ragan, that I'm not sure what I'm gonna do today.
Matt: Courtesy to Ragan?
Rachel: Cuz you guys are like BFFs.
Matt says that he or anyone else is a better choice than Andrew, because he'll be toast. Rachel offers him the HoH Room to rest and feel better...
Matt: Thanks. If you need the room to talk to anyone, I'll clear out.
Rachel: I'm not talking to anyone any more. I'm done.
Matt: Do we know for sure that it's today?
Matt: How was the stocks last night?
Rachel: It was pretty fun, actually...
***As a punishment for losing the PoV, the HGs who participated, minus Enzo, whom Britney saved from the task, all have to spend an hour a night in the stockade. Rachel made it fun last night.
Rachel: It's like the hardest thing to do, Matt. I really appreciate it that you're looking out for me as the HoH.
Matt: Respect the HoH. That's what you gotta do.
Rachel: It means a lot.
Matt: If it comes to me going up, I just ask that you have my back.
Rachel: You'll get the 5 for sure..
Matt: That's all I care about.
Rachel: I really appreciate it.. That you'd look out for me like that.. Like I said, I'm not sure...
Matt: That's ok. I like surprises..
Rachel's completely aware of why Matt made the offer, and has very little intent to take him up on it. They're both playing each other hard this morning. The difference is, Rachel knows it, and Matt doesn't.
Rachel proceeds to change in front of Matt. Off comes the top (bra on).. Then the pants (full coverage unders) ... Matt averts his eyes throughout... She's getting ready to workout...
Matt goes downstairs, leaving Rachel solo in HoH.
Rachel: Oh, this game...
9:43am BBT - Around the house...
Rachel goes outside to work out.
Britney & Monet are out there on the couch. We get pleasantries and Rachel saying she's not sure who's going up yet, but it may well work out for them...
Enzo & Hayden are snoozing in the Cabana Room.
Rachel, Monet & Britney
Britney: Do you think it's gonna be today, Rachel?
Rachel: Yeah. You're gonna have to stare at the wall for an hour.
Britney & Monet talk about their speeches...
Britney: How am I supposed to say it?
Rachel: I think you say, "I choose to use the PoV on myself." I guess it depends if you're a Janelle fan..
They talk about how much they love Janelle, how beautiful she is, etc...
- Ragan comes out to the backyard... Friendly chatter, then Britney announces she has to go inside for a minute... She gets up and goes.
Rachel remains on the elliptical...
...and Monet on the couch, in deep thought.
Feed 3 flips to Matt in the HoH bed, using the spy screen... It's apropos, since he feels like he is running the house.
I go to see what's up with the HGs on feeds 1 & 2
Kathy, Ragan, Brendon, Lane
Breakfast preparations and eating. Brendon's pensive, choking down his slop. Chatting about how time slips away from you inside the house...
All the while, on feed 4, Matt's got the HoH spy cam pointed at the dining table
Feeds 1 & 2
Lane joins Hayden and Matt, and proceeds to file his toenails. Riveting.
The camera op is similarly enthralled. He flips f2 back to the kitchen.
Andrew, Brendon, Monet
Talk is about how cold it is in the Have Not room. Brendon's whiny...
The feed flips to the backyard with Ragan & Rachel whispering game talk..
Rachel: Enzo or Lane...
Ragan: Last week, I thought Hayden, because he wouldn't put her up.. but either way, it would bring it out.
Rachel: It would bring it out. Ragan, we're here to play a game.. Enzo & Monet talk, but they don't talk. Enzo wants to keep Monet here. He's said as much to Hayden.. I don't think last week Hayden made any decisions for himself. He made it based upon what everyone wanted.
Rachel wants to play it up for the fans and make a big splash with her ReNom choice...
Brendon, Britney, Monet...
Chatter about the Have Not room and how uncomfortable Brendon is... How uncomfortable they all are... "It's way cold.." The girls are giving him suggestions on how to make a 5' chair work for his 6'3" frame.
Rachel & Ragan
Rachel hops off the elliptical and crosses the yard to join Ragan on the hammock.
Rachel: Think about how it'll bring out the sides of the house, and how it will reveal everything.
Ragan: Here is the gamble... If there is a pair in the house..
Rachel: It's Britney and Monet.
Rachel's still wavering about who's going up. She confirms with Ragan that she spoke to Matt about not going up...
Rachel: Last night, after all the talks, I got called to the DR. I think the ReNom will really bring some stuff out. I think it will reveal a pair, and I think it will show where all the sides are in the house.
Talk turns to Lane...
Ragan: What would happen if he won HoH. Nobody has any idea.
They continue to make our heads spin... Mine anyhow. Anyone else's?
***Inside, Kristen has joined the living, in the kitchen, on f3.
Ragan & Rachel continue planning and plotting outside. Rachel thinks the fans will love her ReNom drama move.. They both think it'll be crazy.. in a good way.
10:25am BBT - Brendon comes over to join them on the hammock.
Brendon: So how'd it go this morning with Matt?
Rachel: I didn't really tell him.. Just that I can't say yet...
Brendon: I saw him, and he looked like he was looking for somebody...
Rachel: He said he wasn't feeling well..
Ragan: So what does he know, in case he approaches me?
Rachel: He knows that he might go up...
Talk swings back to Andrew.. And the spin.. and the alliances...
Ragan: Matt might be working with Enzo, and he might be freaking out that you're gonna put Enzo up..
Conversation continues about who is actually aligned with who. Rachel wrongly thinks Lane is not aligned with anyone yet... Then back to past seasons and who played who how...
Ragan: This is gonna be a long week...
Rachel: I'm kind of excited, because they're gonna put all their cards on the deck. They're gonna have to. It's gonna be obvious.
Ragan mentions how Britney and Monet have nothing substantive to say to him, so they constantly make stupid comments about his body... "Oh Ragan, you're so ripped."
They come back to the topic of Andrew... Rachel asks Brendon to please talk to Andrew, after it goes down, to keep him calm. He will.
Brendon, Ragan & Rachel make their predictions about when the biggest meltdowns will happen... Ragan thinks Wednesday night.
Britney & Monet
Whisperfest about how they think they've got Rachel in their pocket now... Monet wants the PoV Ceremony to happen sooner than later, so they don't have time to change their minds... Britney gives Monet an accurate body count about who's where in the house, then...
Monet: If they put up Andrew, I will be so happy.
Britney: Me too! I mean, that's the best decision for the house, and like you said, they're stupid.. They have no strategy..
Monet: Brendon's the one we need to worry about. Andrew's cracking...
Britney: He's freaking out.
Matt & Kathy
Matt: It's gonna be a long 4 days... I hope some drama gets stirred up.
Kathy: I hope not.
BB: Monet, please go to the Diary Room.
Matt: Here we go! I'd say we've got about a half hour til this thing gets going.
Kathy goes to the bathroom to put her make up on.. Matt takes off and goes downstairs.
Lane & Matt are on the couch.
Andrew is on the Elliptical
Non-game chatter, because Andrew's present...
Matt: It's weird being up 1st in the morning, because every single camera is all over you...
Lane: I know.. They're like zoom zoom zoom...
Game starts. Matt and Lane begin speaking in very low tones about Brendon's hypothetical impending demise.
Matt: Brendon's being bitchy about the chairs...
Lane: You had the same thing for 10 days and you didn't complain.
***Brendon's a foot taller.
Matt: He's really taking it hard.. which is awesome if it's endurance for HoH, cause he wont last.
Feeds go to BRB for a minute, and when they return...
BB: Rachel to DR.
Lane: Yeah, it's smooth sailing if we win HoH.
Matt: I think you're right. I think we're playing everything as good as we can right now.
Kristen's in the backyard now too... Sunning herself on a chaise.
Matt: Monet's having a super shitty week. It's like insult to injury up there.
Brendon, Monet, Britney
Monet & Britney assure Brendon that neither of them are coming after he or Rachel next week.. Brendon tells them that Rachel hasn't told him exactly what she's doing, but he thinks they're good.
Matt: They thought they had the votes... But, I've been thinking more about it, and I was gonna put up Kathy and backdoor Brendon, but I think I'll just put up Rachel and Brendon and be done with it. I'm ready to flip on em next week, if I win HoH.
Lane: We need to.
Brendon, Matt, Andrew
Andrew's still on the elliptical. Brendon's chatting with Matt on the couch...
11:25am BBT - Rachel joins them on the couch. Brendon heads in to the Kitchen.
Matt: PoV Ceremony's probably gonna happen in like a half hour right? They just called Britney in to the DR.
Rachel: I don't think so. I think they're just gonna ask her questions... You're ok with whatever decision's made?
Matt: Yeah, I think so.. You might get to see me in a button up shirt.
Rachel goes inside to the kitchen. She gives Brendon a hug and a squeeze... He's heading up to HoH. She'll join him there in a few minutes, but first..
Rachel goes to the Cabana room, so Enzo can blow smoke up her skirt about doing whatever she wants him to do with his vote.
After a few minutes, she leaves...
75% Brigade Meeting
Matt, Enzo, Hayden
Cocky talk about how they're running the house. Enzo's going to continue giving Brendon & Rachel lip service all week about doing what they want.
Matt's going to put up Brendon, Rachel and maybe Kathy, if he wins HoH. He was planning to backdoor Brendon, but now that he believes Rachel's putting him up as the ReNom, it gives him the perfect excuse to do whatever he wants.
Hayden confirms that he'll be able to get Kristen to do what they want (not sure if that's relative to this week or the hypothetical Brendon eviction next week).
Monet passes by.
Enzo: She's goin' home. It's a good start, 20 years old, 10 g's.
Lane joins the boys in the Cabana Room, to make the Brigade complete.
Lane: The ceremony's not today. It's tomorrow. They told Britney.
***Now do you believe me? ;p
Lovey Dovey Time
Brendon & Rachel
Hugging and smooching...
Brendon: You can be the brains in here, and I'll be the brawn.
Kathy comes in to report the news that the DR told Britney that the PoV meeting wont be til tomorrow.
Rachel's doubtful of the info. Brendon's thrilled with it. He begins making plans for a day full of them time.. and a date tonight.. Many sweet giggles and kisses ensue...
Brendon: So we'll make good choices and we'll work together..
Rachel: And we always have to remember to expect the unexpected.
Brendon: I'm gonna rest up as much as possible this week... I wanna win the HoH so bad.. 2 reasons: for us, and to get the hell outta the have not room.
Brendon asks her for a heads up about the type of comps that are coming, since she has more BB knowledge than him. Also, he reminds her, since the over-sized golf equipment is still there, they need to get practicing with it.
Hayden, Enzo & Lane
Enzo: Ragan we gotta watch out for too. He's all over the f'in place.
We'll be opening an afternoon post in just a few minutes. Please refresh the blog to check for it! :)
