Big Brother 12: Tuesday Morning, July 20th
Wakey Wakey, Houseguests! It's time to get up and entertain the Live Feed viewers! Happy Tuesday! It's 8:30am BBT! Time to rise and shine!!
Monet, you've got votes to get! Britney, you've got people to insult and demean! Lane, you've got Britney to torment! Brendon & Rachel, Kristen & Hayden, get to smooching! Kathy, lay low! Matt, you sneaky devil, you've got more people to trick into confiding in you. Hell, if you can fool Ragan, you may just deserve to win this thing. Ragan, you just go on be your fabulous, entertaining, albeit a bit too trusting and idealistic, brilliant self. Enzo, your job today is to make me laugh... I know you'll succeed! Andrew, I know Tisha b'Av is a rough day for you, so I make no demands upon you at all. Go. Pray.
What will the Big Brother 12 HGs gets into today?? Is anybody bidding on the 15 minute phone call with BB10 Renny or the oldest BB Auction on ebay: Carol's BB8 Bag?
8:42am BBT... Hmmm.. awfully long wake up. I wonder what's going on in there! As soon as the feeds come back from wakey wakey, I'll begin this update!
8:45am BBT They're Up! Not only are they up, there's SOUND on the Quad!!!
Matt, Enzo & Lane are chatting in the Cabana Room, while Heydon tries to snooze a little more. Monet's snoozy and grumpy on the backyard couch...
***I can't imagine why BB has woken them before nine am today.
Kristen joins the boys.
BB: Enzo (Elvis voice) Thank you very much.
The HGs are too out of it to get the reference. Lane thinks it was supposed to be James Brown. They have no concept of time anymore either. Enzo thinks it's 9:30am. That must be why he's wearing his sunglasses inside... to protect his eyes from that glaring 9:30am sun.
Matt & Lane
I entered this conversation a minute late...
Matt: I'm playing the same game as him... He's been in the Diary Room like 3 times, it's like a therapy session in there... He's kinda freakin out.
Matt: Yeah, he's really just like losin his mind...
Matt: kinda shady. There's something else too that's f'ing crazy... I was out there with him for hours and I barely got 2 words in edgewise. It was like a therapy session for him. He told me, in detail, like every event that happened up there - way more than Hayden even said.
Someone passes thru and says hi, s they chat bs for a couple minutes before resuming.
Matt: So, Brendon & Rachel told Ragan they were suspicious of me, and he thinks they may change their minds and try to flip the vote, and since he and I are friends, they're not gonna go to Ragan, they'll go to Andrew.
Lane: You have the votes.
Matt: That's the other thing he said, if I get word that they're trying to flip, I'll tell em what they wanna hear, but they're not getting my vote.
Ragan, Brendon at the counter
Rachel, Britney in the kitchen
Ragan's telling Brendon about his childhood, his sister and their shared abandonment issues as a result of their father...
Matt's on the hammock. Lane's giving him a rash of sh*t for not being up doing cardio yet this morning.
Lane: Dude, that's crazy what you told me.
Matt: It was crazy being out here til 3 in the morning listening to it.
Lane: But he explicitly said he'd vote to keep you?
Matt: Oh yeah.. He was getting all teared up, crying and stuff. He's way emotional. He said he wants the most genuine people in the house. Like Hayden, he liked the way he handled his HoH..
Lane: Awesome. I'm gonna get my heartrate going, so I can be all jacked and better than you tomorrow.
Feed 1 flips to show us that Britney & Monet are sitting on the couch in the backyard having a bowl of slop, complaining about how cold the room was last night and how slop gets in your teeth.
Matt comes over to join them on the couch.
Britney: Would you rather have to have a conversation with Brendon for 4 hours about how smart he is, or have to go out in Vegas with Rachel, and you'r enot allowed to have anything to drink?
Monet: I think I would choose going out with Rachel, because you could ignore her and talk to other people.
Matt: Britney, please get rid of them next week. Please please please..
Britney: Oh trust.
Monet: I don't like that she's trying to be nice to me... She's all good morning!
Britney: She told me, I know we're not friends, but if you ever wanna talk...
Matt: I hate this drama they're trying to pull... and I know there's people who don't wanna be involved with it.
***Matt's stoking the flames, as if it were necessary, and buying himself a new ally in the house, once Monet goes.
Matt: We gotta get them out next week.
9:40am and we're back to the trio, with Matt telling them his out order: Brendon, Rachel, Kathy.
Britney: I don't even see Kathy having the ability to quickly press a buzzer. She's a dipsh*t.
Matt: She's got a slow southern thing happening. Britney, whichever one of us leaves, you have to cry over a bottle of wine with the other one.
Britney: I'll be sad. And whoever goes better look up Nick and tell him I'm losing my mind. If we don't win HoH, this whole house is f'd.
Monet: They've just had unbelievable luck.
Britney makes a snide comment about Rachel... Monet and Matt follow suit. Shocking, I know.
Matt: Do you think when tv edits us, we're the good side or they're the good side?
Britney: I think we are. We're real. They wear a human shell.
Matt mentions Kathy...
Britney: She contributes absolutely nothing to the show. What would you watch her do all day? Fold towels and smoke?
Matt: I'm not talking about the entertainment factor.. More how we're being portrayed.
Britney: The good people don't always come out on top. We're like the Dr Wills.
Britney: There's so many people in this house that I can't stand. Even being here is less and less enjoyable. And now one of you is gonna leave.
Matt: It's going to be a very difficult week if I win HoH, because I'm gonna put them up right away, and they're going to go crazy.. on me.
Kathy comes out for a smoke...
Matt: I thought this would be a late sleep day.
Britney: Last Thursday, they let us sleep really late.. Like 10:30.
Matt: On a show day?
***I was more surprised than both of em!
Kathy, Misery & Company
Britney: I hope if it's an endurance comp, I hope it's a hard one.. where no one stays on for more than 4 hours.. I don't want it to go on for 12 hours.
Matt has left the girls alone. Elsewhere in the backyard, the Ragan and Matt are working out, doing abs.
Mercifully, feed 1 cuts to them.
Ragan is explaining the next exercise to Matt, who is completely at the mercy of everyone kind enough to teach him how to work out.
Lane: I think Big Brother flirts with you.
Lane: Yeah. Have y'all talked about it?
Ragan laughs. They begin a new exercise...
Morning exercises continue, and Lane supervises from his perch on the hammock.
Matt: My speech.. I wont even touch on the fact that I'm on the block at all or that people are voting. I'll just be all, Natalie, you're a horrible person. You're repulsive both mentally and physically.
Ragan: omg.. You would be the hero of BB12. She really never showered?
Matt: Maybe 3 times the whole season,
Ragan: Disgusting. Maybe Jesse likes a woman who smells ripe.
Brendon: Are you trying to take off your bra?
Brendon: I'm pretty sure I heard they can lead to breast cancer.
Rachel: Oh, really...
Brendon: You drive me crazy.
And now it's time for a little more than kissing... Shall we give them some privacy?
BB: Rachel, please come to the Diary Room.
Brendon: What the Ffff
Rachel: That's a super cock block! hehehe!
Brendon: Make it quick.
Brendon gets out of bed and he's sporting some serious wood. He doesn't seem too troubled by it. He fixes his pants and heads out the door. Andrew is on the HoH landing, praying.
Backyard - Couch
Britney & Kathy
Monet is present, but not speaking.
Britney's being nice to Kathy, in an effort to grab a vote for Monet. The talk is about home and family.. Then Britney starts in on game talk and integrity. Britney says she now has a lot more respect for players that have played before and maintained their integrity.
Matt & Ragan
BB: Britney, please come to the Diary Room
**off camera somewhere, Brendon does a happy dance.
Matt & Ragan are making fun of BB10 Jerry. Then they move on to Britney.
Ragan: She hasn't been called to the DR for like 3 days...
Ragan: So what was it like being taped up there? Can you compare it to some gay sex thing?
Rachel: We should really go work out. This is dangerous.
Brendon: Why? I don't have any weapons..
Rachel: Actually, yes you do..
Rachel's workout idea goes away pretty fast... They head under cover...
Brendon's very convincing.. and doing quite a lot of moving under the blanket. Considering their position, and her breathing, I do believe he's having himself a feast...
Kathy just walked into HoH, completely oblivious to the cock-block she just pulled off, and sits right down on the bed, to tell them about what Britney was saying to her downstairs with regard to integrity and such.
She thinks Britney was suggesting that she may have Andrew's vote for Monet. Brendon tells her not to worry about it.
Brendon: I told you. Her true colors are seeping through. She's having to fight to be nice. There's no way Andrew will ever vote for Monet to stay here.
Kathy: I just want to know that he's ok.
Brendon: I've had several conversations with him, and I trust him, and I know he trusts me.
Kathy goes on a bit about some personal family stories...
***Officer Kathy, You're being charged with Lingus Interruptus. How do you plead?
Kathy, Brendon & Rachel
They return to game talk after a while, but Brendon has his wits about him today. The paranoia of the past few days seems to have passed. Both Rachel & Brendon are confident in Andrew's support, and Kathy's revelations are doing nothing more than letting them know that the people they suspected were scheming are indeed...
Brendon: The key that needs to happen here is that Matt needs to get exposed.
The debate is about when that needs to happen. Before the vote or after... The problem is, the people they want to inform are already in an alliance with Matt that they have not sniffed out: Lane & Enzo.
They do get this fact, though...
Rachel: If Matt wins HoH, he's putting us up.
Brendon: I wanna ask him right now.
Rachel: Please, just don't.
Brendon: We should've gotten the guarantee before we put him up.
Rachel: People go back on their word all the time.
Brendon: But if we got his word, we can tell people, he lied to us, he'll lie to you.
Rachel: Brendon, me and you, we don't need any one to think anything about us apart from we can win competitions... We don't need them to know we can stir up drama.
Brendon wants people to know Matt's a rat and a liar. Rachel says it's enough that they know this... and she guarantees him that Matt is gunning for him.
Brendon wants clarification about what exactly Matt promised them... which was nothing.
Brendon: If he says, well, I can't guarantee you anything, then he's gonna be a target... And I'm gonna feed Enzo a line sometime, so he knows that his little trusted companion, his lap dog, is not obedient.
***Good luck with that, Brendon.
Brendon: I'm just gonna say, I'm glad we're all on the same page, and it was so cool of Matt to approach Rachel and volunteer to go up as a pawn.
***The moment has more than passed. Brendon and Rachel start getting workout ready.
Kathy: Well, Monet leaving is a done deal.
Rachel: Nothing is a done deal until Thursday. I thought I was a done deal til Annie went up.
- Checking around the feeds, Britney's solo on the hammock.
- Lane's solo on a chaise lounge in the backyard.
- Brendon gives Rachel a piggy back out of the HoH Room
- Rachel has a peek inside the Cabana Room and sees a bunch of HGs passed out.
Lane & Brendon
Lane: She's trying to have some hope about staying here, and she doesn't have any... And the names she's tossing out, like Kristen?
Brendon: Are you kidding me? Kristen's openly said she's voting her out. The girl causes so much drama..
Lane: I love when Big Brother puts people like that in here, but not with me. She doesn't even wanna go to the jury house.
Brendon: I don't want her in there either. Let's give her a present.
Lane: hehehe. exactly. So what're you working out today?
Talk turns to working out and protein quantities to gain muscle weight... and marathons...
Britney's preparing a protein shake for herself. Matt passes though.. minor small talk, then she's solo again.
Britney & Monet have a quick tete a tete, and MOnet goes off in pursuit of Kathy's vote.
Kathy, meanwhile, is talking with Andrew in the Orange Room, talking about food... while he's fasting.
Rachel, Matt & Britney
Rachel's on the elliptical and asks Matt to play a game with her. 20 questions. She's thinking of a place. Lots of guesses come... Britney plays a long.
Monet joins Matt and Britney on the couch, and talk turns to the audition process. All of them made it in through the open castings. BB tells them to stop talking about production. They persist.
*** I'll be opening a new post shortly - "Tuesday Afternoon in the BB12 House."
Is today the day you stop watching the other kids
have fun from the sidelines, and join us?
We're Waiting! ;)
