Big Brother 12: Charge of the BB Brigade
Phew! This crew is not going to give us bloggers a break! Ready for some early night shenanigans? I will be here covering them until our Late Night Dishy Blogger, Lessa takes the reigns!
Matt, Enzo, Hayden
The Brigade boys have been quick to change their strategy. Now they have Annie in their sights. They have even called final four. In fact they have the whole game in the bag.... Enzo is on fire and my fingers can rarely keep up. He is adamant about Annie's eviction. She is the saboteur. She is making alliances everywhere...
Hayden: I feel our alliance...
Enzo:.... is as strong as sh*t.
In comes Britney to feed the boys some fodder for their cannons telling them that Brendon tried to strike a deal with her to keep her safe, as long as she does not come after them.
Britney: On the one hand we have one person in the house with alliances all over the house. On the other hand we have Brendon and Rachel on our side.
The boys grill her about Annie, and Britney says she is okay with Annie leaving. They are sure they have Monet and Kathy's votes.
Talk turns to Andrew again. Britney complains that he snapped at her.
Meanwhile down in the kitchen, Annie is preparing something to eat, oblivious that her head is on the chopping block. Andrew and Rachel are whispering in the bathroom trying to gauge the house and what they are going to do.
6:38 PM BBT
Hayden & Kathy
Hayden goes outside to the backyard to check in with Kathy to see where she stands with Annie. They talk about her constantly changing sides and talking to various people.
Meanwhile up in HOH, Britney is doing the same with Monet and Lane.
**They are certainly trying to put all their ducks in a row...
Monet is convinced and on board with getting rid of Annie. Lane isn't. He thinks it would beneficial to him because Annie would not put him up. Britney and Monet tease Lane about him being attracted to Annie.
Lane: Who do you trust more Rachel or Annie.
The girls don't have a clear cut answer. Lane presses his point.
Lane: If you keep Rachel, she is with Brendon... You can't sway Rachel. You can sway Annie.
They girls insists that it's Hayden he needs to persuade.
Britney: Rachel has a way better chance of winning HOH than Annie.
**Round and round they go where they'll stop who the heck knows....
Meanwhile in the backyard, Hayden and Kathy talk about the game and how it manipulates people, and make people do and say things they wouldn't normally do.
**Honey. You ain't seen nothing yet!
6:57 PM BBT
Britney & Monet
They have been rehashing things. Over and over. They are hoping Hayden will put up Annie. If he does, Britney thinks they need to plan to tell Annie they are going with her, but then go make a deal with Rachel.
Britney: We need to go to Rachel and make her promise that if we keep her, that she needs to have our backs.
They are worried that Enzo told Lane what they are planning (to get rid of Annie). They are worried Lane will tell Annie.
Lane comes up and the grills grill him about whether they can trust him. Lane tells them to chill out and not get paranoid.
Talk turns to food. General chit chat and this season's favorite pastime, ragging on Andrew's religious routines... **UGH***
In the kitchen Annie and Brendon cook quietly. No game talk. Yet... It's companionable. They take the opportunity to do some Jedi game whispering about Monet. Andrew comes through from the bathroom and quickly puts in his bid against Monet.
7:28 PM BBT
Andrew & Hayden
Andrew makes his bid to put up Monet. Hayden thinks she will self-implode.
Hayden: I don't think you're the saboteur.
Andrew: I have bigger things to think about. I can't use electricity for 24 hours. I'm telling you because I trust you. That's why I have to prepare food in advance.
Neither of them think Brendon is the saboteur. Talk turns to Annie's many alliances.
Hayden: As a person, I like her.
Hayden tells Andrew to apologize to Annie because she is still upset at him about the pap smear incident. This seems to be the most honest connection between Andrew and someone from the "brigade".
They go through the possibilities about who should go up, who is the likely saboteur. Andrew tells Hayden that he talks Kristen. Hayden calls her "adorable".
Andrew: Who is on the bandwagon to get me out. Are they saying saboteur? Are they syaing character?
Hayden: There are quite a few people who believe you are the saboteur.
Andrew: Believe it? Or are they trying to get me out?
Hayden: Believe it.
Andrew: I swear on my daughter who I adore.
Andrew makes a case for taking out Britney or Monet. They agree that Monet is a lot smarter than Britney. Hayden wants reassure that he will be safe next week.
~~They are getting slightly ahead of themselves.
Andrew thinks that either Britney or Matt are the saboteur. They go through all the people who were on the couch the whole time during the blackout. Hayden is convinced Matt is not the saboteur. They move on to the first HOH comp. They agree that it doesn't make sense that the saboteur would go for the 10K, namely Annie.
Rachel comes in. Andrew leaves.
And we get the BRB screen @ 7:50... Break time! :)
Hayden: If I put someone out instead of you would you help...
Rachel: I will help you... Brendon will talk to you. He will do the same.
Hayden: I want to talk to him. Because I have only two options that will guarantee you staying.
Hayden: I can't say.
Rachel: I will do anything. I will guarantee you until we get final 7. You know the game. When you get final 7, you will have strong players. So it's the game. I'm a strong player. I;m strong mental and physical. And I'm loyal. I won't put you up and I will take you off the block if I can.
Talk turns to Andrew. They both like him and respect his religious beliefs. Rachel thinks that Andrew doesn't realize that his "perverted" comments are such.
Matt knocks but leaves when he sees Rachel and leaves. Hayden and Rachel firm up their agreement. Rachel leaves and Matt returns. Hayden tells Matt about his talk with Rachel. Then Hayden goes on to tell him that Andrew thinks Matt is the saboteur.
They both find it hysterical.
***I have to say. I am pretty impressed with Hayden and how he is dealing with his HOH reign and the other HGs. He is calm, cool, collected and shrewd. Me likey some Hayden :)
8:14 PM BBT
Andrew & Annie
Andrew profusely apologizes for his inappropriate behaviour. Annie accepts his apology and tells him he was taken aback. The question is, does she really forgive him? Time will soon tell...
8:45 PM BBT
Rachel & Brendon
The showmancebirds are locked into an intense flirting/game talk. They reaffirm their game commitment to each other.
Rachel: That's why I'm attracted to you. I really like your brain...
~~Me too.... Me too! :)
Meow Meow Room
Andrew, Enzo, Matt, Monet, Kathy, Annie
Andrew is making some inroads with the group. He is explaining kosher food. One step closer to not being the pariah. The others are asking some questions, showing interest. **Maybe now they will stop ragging on him :)
And from the sublime to the ridiculous...
Outside, Kristin is performing, umm, surgery on Lane. :)
They are talking about boobs and ass....
8:20 PM BBT
Around the House
Hayden, Andrew, Brendon, Ragan, Annie & Kristin
Talking about Keesha and Renny. ** Best be respectful of my girls! :)
Rachel, Britney, Enzo, Matt, Monet & Rachel
Talking about POV comps past and present. Rachel takes this opportunity to show her coolness to the others and subtly plead her case. The others start probing her about her relationship with Brendon.
**Interesting note of strategy: once Brendon and Rachel reconfirmed their alliance, they each joined a different group to schmooze.
9:40 PM BBT
Brendon & Annie
They are chatting about love, body image and being liked for who they are. It's a lovely conversation. No game talk, just getting to know each other. This convo is certainly worthy of a flashback. You get a good understanding of Brendon and Annie. A nice break from the game. :)
**Of course any excuse to get a Brendon cap :)
10:10 PM BBT
Brendon, Ragan, Enzo & Matt
Various stages of eating. They are joking around with pseudo-paranoia. The other HGs start coming in and joining in the fun:
Enzo: Why did he give you the first meatball? Do you have an alliance?
Matt: They probably will give us wine later.
Brendon: How do you know? Did you talk to production?
BB: Annie, please don't obstruct your microphone.
Lane: Why they talking to you? Is there something going on?
10:51 BBT PM
Monet and Britney
They are deconstructing Hayden's connection with Kristen. Annie hanging out with Brendon. They aren't saying anything new, except that they are projecting their level of paranoia to the others. They are very focused on getting Annie out. Then Brendon, then Andrew, then Rachel....
***That's their agenda but they would have to win some comps to achieve it...
Britney calls Annie a "skank". They move on to cutting up Andrew.
Britney: I just want to send Andrew home cause he's weird.
**Bitter party of two?
11:14 PM BBT
Lane pitches the idea that if it's between Annie and Rachel, Annie would be easier to persuade than Rachel.
Lane: On the other hand if you put Kathy up, it won't cause drama in the house. It won't be as dramatizing (sic) if she leaves the house. I don't have anything with Annie. I talk to her. But it would be better with the group. Brendon will be angry but we can tell him that Annie played both sides.
Hayden: Annie does play both sides.
Lane: I can throw a vote Rachel's way. (To throw Brendon off) And if Brendon doesn't win HOH, we can backdoor him. We can keep Andrew. He would be easy to persuade.
Hayden: Andrew wouldn't put us up if he won HOH. We have been nice to him.
**Where have I heard this before? Oh right. Every season of BB. :)
11:36 PM BBT
Annie & Hayden
Annie clears the air with Hayden about her connection with Brendon. She reinterates that she wants to work with him. She wants to know who has been telling lies about her. (About her alliance with Brendon & Rachel)
Hayden: I heard it from more than one person.
Annie emphasizes that she does not trust Monet and Britney. She maintains that they will say anything and lie.
Hayden: You can tell who in the house is genuinely honest. Some people are a little shady.
Annie: I won't sleep with Brendon anymore. I had no choice. I will sleep in here. I don't have an alliance with him. I want Rachel out actually.
Hayden: You've been nothing but great. People are throwing you under the bus.
Annie: People are against me.
Hayden: I will say people are scared of you. You're strong. You said that you want to split them up.
Annie: I do want them to be split up. They are an alliance. If I were in their alliance, I wouldn't want to vote Rachel off. You can't have an alliance this early.
Hayden: You can't have an alliance yet. (***what about the brigade?)
Hayden basically tells Annie she has nothing to worry about at this point. He sees her, Enzo and himself... Annie reiterates that she is not in an alliance; that she was trying to get information about them, as Britney and Monet wanted her to. Hayden says his position is difficult and he is being torn in 12 different directions.
**This is the gist of the conversation. Basically they are playing the game. What's true and what's not? Time will tell.
11:57 PM BBT
Let the games begin!
Lane and Hayden meet in the storage room. Hayden fills Lane in on his convo with Annie. They are now leaning toward keeping Annie. They need to persuade Enzo.
And that's it for me tonight. Time for Late Night Dish with Lessa!!! Genie out! :)
