BB12: Chum Baths & Hand Cuffs & Penguins - Oh My!
Good Morning BB Dishers! Happy Sunday Show Day! :)
If you haven't been on the live feeds the past couple of days, you'll think they're broadcasting a different house!
Yesterday's PoV has shaken up the house in ways that even hardcore feed-watchers couldn't imagine. They brought back "How Bad Do You Want It?"; and yesterday, we found out who did and who didn't.
Brendon won the PoV along with the honor of shaving his head, taking a fishy chum bath every hour for 24 hours, 3 weeks of slop, and being chained for 24 hours to Britney whom he wisely chose as his partner. This enforced proximity seems to have forged a new understanding between them, and possibly a new alliance, though those words have not been spoken yet. Britney has taken this turn of events like a champ with her special brand of humor, instilling in Brendon a newfound respect. Britney's regard for Brendon and Enzo has grown as a result of this competition after seeing how hard they fought for the PoV. Enzo has taken two punishments himself, wearing a penguin suit this week and losing all his clothes which were given to charity.
As far as the prizes go, by their own admission: Lane got the phone call from home which everyone knows; Hayden took the 5K and the trip which only Enzo and Lane know; while Matt got nothing, saying repeatedly to anyone who will listen that the competition was rigged.
Speaking of Matt, Operation Backdoor Matt is now in full effect...
For further details, and to be pointed to other relevant posts, please read Carolyn's mammoth Overnight Report! :)
What can we expect today? The end of the chum baths and the chained duo. It would be interesting to see if this will go on for an actual 24 hours or BB 24 hours. There is still time for campaigning, so the question remains will Matt get wind of his upcoming demise and out the Brigade to Britney? Will Britney's and Brendon's new understanding last beyond the 24 hours? Will Ragan wake up and start playing the game for himself, instead of for his knighted Matt? Will Hayden keep his mouth shut about the prizes he took?
Join me as we dive into the chum bath called Big Brother!
8:45 AM BBT
Time for another chum bath ritual, then Brendon escorts Britney to the bathroom; she washes up; he brushes his teeth; they wind down the awnings; and into DR they go.
9:09 AM BBT
They come out of DR and go back outside (off feeds).
10:00 AM BBT
Lane gets up to use the rest room; he rinses his hands and goes back to bed.
Britney and Brendon are on the lounger trying to get some chum naps...
10:09 AM BBT
Finally!!! (*Blue1969 called it!)
Wakey, Wakey House Guests! You've got some campaigning to do!
10:19 AM BBT
The lights are on but we have buried bodies...
Lane seems to be up and about but no sign of him on the feeds.
Britney and Brendon have come in to see to breakfast and morning beverages. Poor things are looking rough.
Brendon: It feels like having three arms.
Lane joins them and has a good-natured laugh at them.
He says he thinks they won't go a full 24 hours like Hayden's Solitary Confinement. Talk turns to Enzo and how funny he is in the penguin suit transitioning into the various HGs' distinctive walks like Monet, Enzo and Ragan.
Enzo is up, sporting Hayden's tee shirt to change his batteries and hits the cot again.
The chained duo go to the stove so Brendon can make some slop, while Britney patiently watches. Talk is about slop and Have Not food. Brendon comments that it would be funny if you had to be chained like this to your significant other. They have a tired laugh over that scenario.
Britney: Nick is funny. We have fun together.
Brendon: My teacher told us once that the most important thing in a relationship is laughter.
Britney: He's a fun person. He's funny.
Brendon: That's very important.
Britney offers to help him as they head outside again.
There's music playing somewhere and Brendon comments how fun it would be if they could see the behind the scenes stuff. Britney says they let them do that during the wrap party. Since they're talking about production...
We get served some bubble tea for breakfast.
Ragan and Hayden sleepwalk to the Storage Room to change their batteries.
10:45 AM BBT
Ding Ding Ding.... Chum Chum! It's become such a routine!
Brendon washes off with some helpful suggestions from Britney.
Get as clean as possible. Don't forget your ears!
After Brendon's chum bath, we get a bubble bath...
10:57 AM BBT
Feeds return to Brendon and Britney talking about the comp prizes.
Britney: Hayden and Lane have no reason to lie to me about it.
Brendon: And Lane was up front about the phone call.
They agree that Hayden and Lane are on the up and up.
Brendon: Matt will be all over you to try to talk to you.
Britney: He wanted to talk to me after the comp. I could hear him knocking during Pandora's Box. Then after he came up to HoH but I didn't here him. I could hear him in the kitchen...
Skippy strikes again....
Feeds come back shortly to a Lock Down.
Brendon and Britney get more beverages and go up to HoH. Britney grabs her makeup, settling in the bed while Brendon sits on the floor not to nastify her bed.
They talk about Britney's goal to work with the Cowboys as a recruiter. Britney says her mom is a huge NFL fan which made Britney decide to like it. Talk turns to Fantasy Football and how Nick is completely into it.
As they lie down to rest, talk turns to universities and university programs. Britney asks Brendon if he was a T.A. Brendon says it's not required. He taught labs. This leads them to tell each other what brought them to Big Brother. Britney wouldn't have come had Nick not supported her. Brendon was awarded a 6K summer fellowship that he had to give up.
11: 18 AM BBT
Matt is called to DR.
Brendon and Britney talk about missing Nick and Rachel. Brendon says he still can't believe that they brought Rachel back and kicked him out. Britney says, "It was a crazy 24 hours."
They quiet down, finally drifting off into well-earned sleep...
11:41 AM BBT
Feeds switch to Lane coming out of the Insect Room and joining Ragan to the bathroom.
Lane tells Ragan about a dream he had of him being called to the DR and coming out to find himself alone. They're wondering what is happening outside. They think that BB is either putting the grill back or replacing the chum.
Ding! Ding! Ding! Chum time again... You're evil BB!
Dunk. Ew. Rinse. Jacuzzi. Dry off.
Matt comes out, asks how it's going. Brendon says, "Chumrific!"
They head back inside. Matt to the bathroom to brush his teeth and the chained duo to HoH get Brendon's mic and then back outside to chill on the couches.
Ragan is taking a shower.
Lane washes up in the bathroom and joins Matt in Jumanji.
On that note, we're going to be taking a Sunday afternoon blog break! Please mind the critters; they're always up to something! See you all back here again for the Sunday Show Viewing Party @ 8 PM EST, 5 PM BBT! :)
