Big Brother 12: Thursday Morning, July 15th
Welcome to BB12 Live Show Day, Dishers & HGs!! Here's how today is going to go on the feeds:
BB should be waking them soon, then they'll very likely head up to HoH for their 1st HoH lockdown of the season... Then it's move out time for Hayden, and tidy up time for the rest of the HGs... Then a whole lot of primping, followed by a tech rehearsal that we will not see... And finally, BB's gonna play keep away with us, as far as revealing any new info, just to make sure we all tune in to the Live Show tonight. It has always been thus.
- Attention Dishers:
We'll be hanging with the HGs and updating til about noon BBT & then returning for the Live Show Viewing Party & A full night of Live Feed Updates & Blogging after that. We'll have a new HoH, the pandering, the posturing, the reveal, the panic... It'll be a blast. ;) Join us!
Why? Well, Thursdays tend to be a big game of live feeds cat & mouse until after the live show, because they want to makes sure we all tune in and watch the live show. Sure, they may let some choice tidbit fall, but typically, it's carefully selected to whip everyone into a frenzy of last minute panic.. and we're not playin' that game.
REMINDER For Live Feed Subscribers:
- Join Chelsia & Missy at 6pm Eastern for Happy Hour. They'll be taking your phone calls in a live video chat!
As of 8:30ish, the Creatures are stirring, but BB hasn't officially woken them yet. Andrew got up to do his morning prayers around 7ish, then back to bed. Annie's been up and down a few times now. Brendon is up and staying that way, and Ragan just got up as well.
At the moment, Brendon's in the kitchen preparing some food.
Andrew's back up now too. He grabs the Dyson and proceeds to vacuum the bathroom. Ragan heads to the kitchen to chat with Brendon, then they both go into the Cabana Room, and Ragan brings up the recurring noise...
It's 9:10am and BB still hasn't woken the HGs. With the way Brendon and Andrew are already cleaning and tidying, they're wont be much for the rest of them to do in that arena.
Ragan: I can't believe how late everyone stays up every night. They're such night owls.
Brendon: Not me. Outside the house... Though there was a time...
Ragan: We're the old people.
Brendon: I made coffee too...
Ragan: I can't believe they haven't woken us up yet.
Brendon: They're already working out there, so I'm guessing we're in for the day.
Ragan: Oh, definitely.
Brendon's bummed he wont get to work out.
Ragan & Brendon
Ragan's just finished a bowl of cereal, and he's doing his dishes. Both of them would really like to be in the sun today, but that's not terribly likely... unless it's a small build, and BB opens up the backyard for a little bit.
Still no wake up call. Bizarre!
Brendon: Kathy and ___ did all the windows last night too.. There may be a few dirty ones, but...
Ragan: You're kidding!
Ragan goes to do a look thru for dirty windows, cleaning supplies in tow.
Still no wakey wakey, but Enzo has now joined the living and is foraging for food in the kitchen. Brendon and Andrew are in there as well. Brendon's food prep is almost complete, and Andrew just finished doing some dishes.
Enzo sits down with a bowl of cereal...
***I cannot remember a single instance of BB letting them sleep so late on a live show day. Not ever. Not once. It's nearly 10am. Usually, production has them out of bed by 8am on a live show day. What's the deal, BB? Were the HGs actually right about suspecting an Endurance Comp for this HoH? Are you expecting it to go all night long, so you're letting them have a lie in now? I mean, no one loves an endurance comp on the live feeds more than me, but it's *so* early in the season for it!! There's also a distinct lack of audible hammering going on... I'm at a loss...
Annie has now joined the living in the kitchen, and she's searching for breakfast. Brendon has prepared a feast, which he's offering to all who enter. Annie partakes of the pancakes. Still no wake-up call.
10:03am BBT - BRB on all feeds. Wakey, Wakey, Houseguests!! About Time, BB!! Good grief!
10:15am BBT - More HGs are up and milling about. Kathy compliments Andrew on his vacuuming job... and we go back to the BRB screen.
Let the primping begin!
Meanwhile, in the Jumanji room, Matt's just announced...
Matt: We're gonna be cooped up in that room for a long time. It's gonna be bad.
Enzo: 7 more hours.
Lane: Til we go live?
Ragan: Til we go live?
Enzo: Til we can't curse. I'm gonna be on my best behavior.
They've been told that HoH lockdown will begin at 10:45am.
Ragan: Hello, Houseguests. Heyyyyy, Julieeeeee!!
Matt, lane, Ragan & Monet
Ragan's trying to figure out what to wear for the live show. The other guys are far less concerned, though Matt does offer that he probably wont ever get dressed up for it unless he's on the block. Rgan decides he'll wear a v-neck.
Annie comes in and starts complaining about the HoH lockdown that's now 15 minutes away, and she has to pack...
Annie: Lane is a teddy bear trapped in a country boy body (paraphrasing), and I *like* it! Enzo was crazy last night.. So funny.
Enzo comes back in.
Annie: We wanted you to go streaking, in just your sunglasses.
Feed 3 -
Annie leaves Jumanji and goes to the Orange Room, asking Andrew if he's seen anything of hers in there, because she needs to pack. That's a no. Incidentally, Rachel's changing her top in there. Andrew's doing the ortho guy eye avert. She has a seat on the floor and continues to pack her things.
Andrew vacuums around her.
HoH Lockdown doesn't start for another 6 minutes, but Matt, Enzo and Ragan have already gone up there and claimed the bed! Hayden's busy packing. A couple minutes later, Britney makes her way in with a "Hey Guys!"
10:42am Kathy enters the HoH. Happy chatter continues.
Kathy: You wanna scoot over?
Enzo: Yeah, sure.. donworryboutit...
In she goes. :)
Britney's waxing poetic about her lack of musical knowledge. No American Pie, no Classic Rock, whatsoever. It's horrifying.
Matt: You're like a communist.
***I was thinking troglodyte.
Britney's reading the HoH Handbook or the rule book, and she announces to everyone that nominations happen on Fridays. There's a collective WOW from the group at how much faster everything's going to run. Ragan's putting his idea of the schedule out to everyone...
Talk turns to questions they think Julie will ask them and having a good laugh. It's so early in the season, loathing has yet to penetrate the HoH lockdown. Britney's posing questions to the HGs , as if she were Julie, and doing a really great job of it, actually.
Britney: I just hope Natalie comes back to host a competition at some point in the season..
Ragan: And we all said we wouldn't participate. Um.. I'll take a penalty nom.
Britney: What if they take a bed away and it's mine.
Rachel: That's ok. I'll share a bed.
We have our first awkward silence. It lasts only a moment, but it is pronounced.
They hear something very faintly...
Andrew: oh my G-d! It's the Big Brother song!
Enzo: We have a theme song?
Andrew: Yes! The opening credits.
Ragan: They're probably doing a run-through of the opening sequence.
Enzo: if you get eliminated, your picture goes away, right?
Ragan: Oh! Hearing that song will be awesome! That'll give me such a zing.
Enzo: I wanna hear people clap.
Ragan: I don't think we will. I'm just excited for the clip we get to see.
Rachel: Me too.
Enzo: Oh, we get to see a clip?
They take guesses at what it'll be.
11:11am BBT - BRB Screen on all feeds.. just for a minute.
Back to happy chatter in the HoH Lockdown.
The HGs have settled into a comfortable silence. HoH Lockdown continues. The only HGs doing any communicating at all are Rachel and Brendon, seen in the bottom right of this photo.
Not a peep!
Skippy's trying to entertain himself by moving in for some tighter shots... Here's his finest.
Today's the perfect day to stop watching
the other kids have fun
from the sidelines & join in!
