The afternoon on the feeds begins with a Flashback Must!
- Noon BBT
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go inside and close the sliding glass door.
The HGs hopefully call out "Luxury Competition!" At this stage of the game, that's pretty doubtful. It's too early.
We have lunch preparations and laundry, both happening in the kitchen... Kristen's doing her delicates in the kitchen sink, while Enzo & Andrew make themselves lunch. The boys don't seem at all bothered by the notion of her delicates...
The feeds have been cutting in and out of the Acid Trip Screen (thanks MsFitz!)
12:49 PM BBT
Around the House
Brendon & Kristen
Chatting about pets, life, and aspirations. It's a nice easy, bonding discussion
Brendon, Britney, Enzo, Lane & Rachel
Talking about movies and video games....
12:52 PM BBT
Ragan & Hayden
Ragan goes up to HoH to have a talk with Hayden after all the nomination madness is over. Hayden wants to see who will be genuinely consistent with him.
Ragan: One of the biggest advantages in the house is to know who to trust and who to talk to as a human being. Having observed people how they have been acting the past few days. I am a pretty good judge of character. Who is coming from a genuine place. You are one of those people.
Hayden: I feel the same way about you, and I have told people in the house.
Ragan: Going into next week, the point of this, when Thursday rolls around you will be able to see it better. I think you're a very observant person... I don't know what you know, what you have seen. You have made smart decisions. I think you are a good judge of character. I just wanted to say that you should trust your gut instincts about people who will throw you under the bus...
Hayden:It's a huge tell if people are not treating others with respect. That to me is big.
Ragan: There's a lot of things to look for and that's one of them. It's going to be interesting for you next week. You will see things differently. You will be walking around the house more and walk in on conversations.
Hayden: I like it up here, but I'm looking forward to being in the house. People tell me what I want to hear. Everybody. All week have been telling me what I want to hear. Next week, when I'm downstairs, when I don't have power, I will get a better idea...
Ragan: I have my opinions on several people. What's emerging in my head right now... Like people who are slippery, who throw names around, this early, you can't trust those people.
Spark the feeds up folks. They are talking faster than I can transcribe and it's an important discussion. They talk about the saboteur, how it makes it even harder to trust and talk to people.
They talk about Andrew getting the bum rap that he is the Sab. because he is socially awkward and different than anyone else. Neither believe that he is the Sab.
Ragan: It's kind of like group-think mentality. Then you close your mind to other clues that will take you to another direction.
Ragan says he feels most comfortable with Hayden, Kristen, and Matt. They agree that Rachel is a follower but has a good heart. They go on to talk about Annie's flip flopping which brought her where she is now.
Ragan: It's those people who change with the wind. Those are the people you have to get rid of.
Hayden: That's why she's up.
Ragan: There are three people that are potential wild cards.
Hayden: I have made some enemies in the house. Then there is the wild card scenario.
Ragan: To me random players that go where the wind blows...scare me.
Hayden: Do you think BB would mislead someone inside there?
Ragan: Yes. I feel that....
Acid Lava Trip Screen. "Stop talking about DR!"
Back and Ragan is warning Hayden not to be pulled into trash-talking someone. It would give people ammunition. He suggests he keeps his talks to one or two people.
Ragan: Kristen is good at that. When people start talking game, she leads the conversation into real life subjects.
They both agree that they really like Kristen.
Ragan thinks they are on lockdown because they are fixing the washing machine.
They end the discussion. Ragan goes downstairs, and Hayden stays on the landing to talk with Andrew and check with him.
They go inside HoH after commando whispering. Andrew wants to know about Lane, Enzo, and Matt.
Andrew: Tell me why not to break up Brendon and Rachel.
Hayden: I think if Rachel stays, it's better for us.
Andrew: Even though she is with Brendon?
Hayden: I think that if either of them win HoH, I don't think you or Kristen and maybe I are not going to go up. Kristen and I are doing a good job about you not being the saboteur.
They join Ragan Brendon and Rachel downstairs. General food prep and chit chat. On feeds 1&2 they are napping....
1:40 PM BBT
Meanwhile on feeds 1&2 Annie is tossing and turning in bed. Andrew joins, and Annie takes the opportunity to regurgitate her case yet again. She is trying to put doubt in his mind about Brendon and Rachel.
Annie: Have you ever seen them kiss? (** We have and more!)
She is planning on tearing Brendon a new one during her speech. Andrew encourages her by giving her pointers and leaves. (**Hmm. What is he up to with the saboteurish type behaviour?)
1:50 PM BBT
Enzo, Britney Lane & Monet
They stir from their nap.
Britney: Alliances were made while we were asleep.
Enzo: That's what happens when you nap.
Britney goes into a rant about wanting to tear their voice boxes out for talking so loudly while they're trying to sleep.
Enzo: What do you have to say to the live feeders?
Lane: They're scum. (*****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Britney: This camera guy is not my friend.
Annnd.... you called it.... Acid Trip Screen.
Feeds 3 &4
In the kitchen, Brendon is making crepes while Matt tries to juggle and the others watch. Britney comes out to investigate because she was chased out of her bed by Enzo's tooting. They talk about the washing machine that has died. They will even give up part of their first week's stipend for a new one.
Meanwhile Rachel has joined Kathy & Kristen for a nap in the Cabana Room...
In the kitchen.... Snacking has become an extreme sport... Britney is talking about her ugly braces while Enzo is saying that the peanut butter to jelly ratio must be perfect. Ragan is bored and he asks if someone can get into a fight... (**LOL)
The crepes are ready and they chow down.
MMM Looks good! :)
2:33 PM BBT
Around the House
Andrew, Lane, Enzo & Brendon
Talking about tats.
Kathy, Monet, Britney, Matt, Hayden & Annie
Annie & Kathy are doing dishes while the rest talk about college classes.
Kristen & Rachel
2:50 PM BBT
Kathy & Annie
Annie has rebooted her speech to Kathy yet again. Kathy flat out tells Annie that she will go with the will of the house. Annie is pedaling, Kathy isn't buying. For a transcript of the discussion just see previous posts, especially todays TOR. :)
Monet joins them and Annie continues pleading her case. Kathy is calling her on feeling so betrayed by her so-called best friend in the house. Annie claims that she has 3 votes but needs a few more... (She doesn't say who.) Monet tries to change the conversation.
Monet asks Kathy if she wants to take a bath. Annie asks if she can go upstairs and talk to them. Monet says they are taking it naked. ((**Ruh oh!) Britney joins, and Monet instantly asks her if she wants to come up with them. It gets awkward, and Annie leaves.
As soon as she leaves, it becomes apparent that Annie has made no headway with anyone. They wish she could give it a break for a day.
Meanwhile in the Orange Room... the Lovebirds nap, oblivious to Annie's Redux Machinations...
Lock Down is over. Nothing has changed in the backyard. Matt says it looks smaller. LOL! They discover a fixed washer and dryer. With instructions! :)
3:19 PM BBT
Lane & Hayden
Hayden is practicing lassoing. They are talking about Britney and how annoying she is. Britney reminds Lane of his ex. They reconfirm the Brigade. It's nothing we haven't heard before.
Ragan, Brendon & Rachel
It came in midway through the conversation. It seems Ragan is catching them up to speed with Annie's campaigning. He leaves. Brendon coaches Rachel about how to react, and basically let Annie self-destruct. They are stealth whispering, making it hard to transcribe. Rachel wonders if Annie is trying to get her to get angry. Brendon is advising her not to react. They settle back into spooning and kissing.
Here is a cap for the HGs questioning if what they have is really happening. They go on to talk about when they were first attracted to each other.
