BB12: Tuesday Night Smack Down
Good Evening BB Dishers!
What a day of speculation on the live feeds today!
The paranoia about the potential information Rachel got from the DR raged through the house all day. Matt explained away the dollar; and though his story has holes, no one noticed and the Brigade doesn't care. Brendon and Rachel have been spending the day together, riding a roller coaster of emotions and being there for each other. Ragan has been going through a roller coaster of emotions himself, alternating from feeling the repercussions of his past bullying which Brendon triggers in him, and remorse for the way he has been talking about Brendon and Rachel.
The line is deep in the sand and both sides are very emotional, not resulting in their finest human moments. While Britney/Ragan and Brendon/Rachel focus on each other, the Brigade and Kathy sit back, watch the fall out, and stir the pot occasionally.
For a more comprehensive look at the afternoon in the BB house. please refer to Carolyn's Afternoon Report.
Let's peek in on the inmates, stay far from the glass!
7:13 PM BBT
Brendon and Rachel are cuddled in bed. Brendon is sleeping but Rachel's wheels are turning, turning...
Ragan and Kathy
Ragan is telling Kathy how hard it is for him to deal with Brendon because it's bringing back his history of being bullied. Kathy says she can relate, experiencing similar treatment when she was pregnant in high school. He is feeling torn because he knows he has been very nasty over the past few days and he knows he needs to clear the tension. He seems to be having a break through, unfortunately, he joins Britney on the hammock and he deteriorates. "When he watches the season and sees the things we said about him, we will have the last laugh." (*le sigh)
It quickly deteriorates to a rerun of their daily bash session.
Hayden and Lane work out. Lane and Enzo just finished and pool game, being replaced by Ragan and Britney. The negativity continues. Kathy comes out and laughs at their "humor" and participates.
Tutankhamen watches... :)
8:00 PM BBT
Hayden and Matt go into Taj to ask Brendon and Rachel if they want to play. Oddly, the lights are off and they are in bed. They decline politely, Hayden and Matt make a hasty retreat.
Hayden joins Kathy on the sofas and she tells him she is nervous about next week. She thinks she will be going up as a pawn. "My chances of winning are slim." Hayden is called to DR.
It's Matt and Enzo's turn in the pool tournament. Lane sits on the dryer chatting with them.
8:07 PM BBT
Brendon asks Rachel if she wants to go outside and play pool. She doesn't want to, suggesting chess instead. Brendon seems very down. Rachel asks him if he is okay. He says he is tired of all the "douche bags". Talk turns to having so little to do in the house. Rachel wants to work out. Brendon doesn't want to leave Taj. Rachel convinces him to leave their haven, so he can go grab a shower while she works out.
They go out to the kitchen where they chit chat with Lane. Lane asks Rachel if she wants a Popsicle.
Kathy is in the shower. Brendon sits on the bathroom sofa and waits because he wants a cold shower.
8:30 PM BBT
Brendon is making his futile pitch to Enzo yet again about keeping Rachel in the house.
Enzo: I don't trust none of these people.
Brendon: They are so f'in fake.
Enzo: You have been going through week 1, yo! I feel bad because I'm going with the crowd...
Brendon: It doesn't matter. Whoever stays, they won't be coming after you.
Enzo: If you can get me and Hayden, who else would you have?
Brendon wonders maybe Lane. Enzo doesn't think this will happen... Hayden comes in. Brendon renews his pitch. They say they need to find out who Kathy will vote for. Enzo says he and Hayden need to find out who is voting for whom. (**I've lost the plot...)
8:43 PM BBT
They break it up, and Enzo goes to the kitchen, whispering to Ragan and Matt that Brendon was working them to get Rachel to stay.
8:47 PM BBT
Ragan: I want to have a conversation with you about the future, but not too specifically. This is a turning point in the game.
Matt: I would say so.
Ragan: That said, I love everyone in the 6. There are people I trust more than others. Do you feel the same way without being specific.
Matt: Yeah. I would say so.
Ragan: In every challenge there are people you don't want to see win. Who would I be most concerned about in competitions.
Matt: Anyone I pick, will be strategy not personal.
(**This seems a pointless conversation without specifics.)
Matt: Cause if he does win HoH, next week.
Ragan: It will be me and you.
Matt: Yeah with Britney as a renom which throws out the Final 3. (**When did they make a final 3 deal?)
They speculate that a lot of people will be complacent about winning HoH next week because they know they won't be on the block. Matt says that Ragan and Britney will need to win HoH. Matt tells him not to be nervous. Ragan wants to bring Britney upstairs so they can talk. (**oh lovely!)Matt reiterates that Ragan shouldn't be nervous.
Matt: I'm not nervous, and I will be the renom if I'm not put up straight up. (**That's cause you have the Diamond Power of Veto.)
Britney comes in...
9:01 PM BBT
Rachel and Brendon are schmoozing Lane at the Pool Table
Cuts to Hayden and Enzo in Taj.
Enzo: I don't care who goes home. If Brendon wants to go home, let him go home. I don't care.
Hayden: I don't care either.
Enzo: Maybe we should keep Brendon. He won't win the HoH. Either way we're safe.
(**My head is spinning...)
Enzo is telling Hayden that they need to be gentle with Brendon because that's two votes in the Jury house. He would prefer to keep Rachel because she can be manipulated easier. They move to Cabana. Enzo says he is tired of the friction in the house caused by Britney and Ragan. They both think that Brendon is an idiot to not want to stay in the house.
9:12 PM BBT
Kathy and Rachel
Rachel is telling Kathy that she can do very well if she wanted to. She is giving Kathy a pep talk. She did well in the quiz and she could have done well in Endurance.
Rachel; I have total faith in you. If you can take me out, you can take out any one of these people.
Kathy: I won't go down without a fight. Starving or not starving.
Rachel: Good to hear. You won't be starving next week. And you won't be sleeping in that bed.
Kathy: The bed I don't mind. It's the lack of food.
(**She is no doubt trying for Kathy's vote. Doubtful Kathy is buying it...)
They go inside.
Rachel goes into Cabana where Enzo, Hayden and Britney are. Rachel asks Britney if she wants to do a facial with her (*Thanks Barbara!) and Britney declines saying she is tired from pool, and they have their talk show to do later. Rachel asks "What talk show?" They tell her it's interviewing the winners of the tournament.
Britney: We just sit around and talk... (**smack about you.)
Talk turns to Enzo's accent. Hayden, Lane and Britney tease him. (It's funny without being mean)
9:35 PM BBT
Rachel, Brendon, Enzo and Kathy
Rachel is upset because Ragan left the Cabana as soon as she came in. Kathy and Enzo say that she should go anywhere she wants. Brendon is going off on Ragan, and Rachel tells him to stop. Brendon says that Ragan getting upset because Rachel said he was together with Matt (**implying an alliance) is ridiculous.
Brendon: That's why we asked Jeff and Jordan if they keep in touch with people from their season and they said Casey and Laura. You think people will want to keep in touch with you if you're d*cks in the house?
Brendon and Rachel leave; Enzo asks Kathy if she will be voting Rachel out. She says definitely. Enzo says that Brendon keeps cornering him to ask him. Kathy says that no one has asked her anything. Cue Brendon who comes in.
Brendon: I know this is unprecedented in BB history, but I want you to vote me out. (He smiles at Kathy.)
Enzo and Kathy crack up.
Brendon: I know it's stupid but I love her and I want her to stay.
Enzo: Press the exit button.
They all laugh again. Enzo says it makes no difference to him, but to make sure the whole house is on board. Kathy says that Rachel told her that she wants him to stay, and that she is "torn".
Hayden comes to get Brendon and Enzo to play pool and they leave Kathy alone in the Cabana. She rolls her eyes. (**Gaytor can supply you with some more!)
9:56 PM BBT
Ragan, Britney & Rachel
Rachel asked them how their day was. It's a very awkward conversation with Britney doing most of the talking. Britney and Rachel go on to say how lame the Saboteur is. Neither Ragan nor Britney are looking at Rachel.
Rachel: You look tired (to Ragan)
Ragan: It's been an emotionally exhausting week.
Rachel: From what?
She asks Ragan to talk...
Rachel: I don't know what happened, but...
Ragan: You don't know what happened? (His voice rising a bit)
Rachel: Please don't jump at me... (Her voice chokes a bit)
Ragan: Let me just say this, give me your hand. My intent saying that I don't what to talk to you because I know myself and I need a few days to be calm, cool and collected. And I don't want you to think anything else. The other thing about me... I don't respond... I kind of shut down (when someone gets emotional). You are an emotional person as well. So when you get emotional, my inclination is to shut down. It's like I want people to collect themselves (paraphrasing).... Like the night you were drunk when you laughed a maniacal laugh.
Rachel: What are you talking about? I didn't laugh a maniacal laugh, I wasn't laughing at you. It wasn't directed at you. I was laughing at something that happened in DR.
Ragan: Lane said he watched you looking at me as you walked up and laughing. You went outside and you said "I didn't have to say anything to him."
Rachel: I don't remember saying that. It wasn't directed at you. It was something I said in DR that was funny. I'm sorry if you thought it was directed at you.
Ragan: I'm done. I can only operate on a level of reality. I'm done.
Britney: I'm not trying to get involved, and I can leave if you want, but I did hear you (Rachel) say that.
Rachel: It had nothing to do with Ragan.
This is ongoing.
Ragan: Rachel. We operate on different levels. I don't get the things you do.
Rachel: What things?
Ragan: All of the theatrics.... There is one common denominator in all of the arguments.
Ragan: You. You were involved in all the arguments. (He lists them)
Rachel: The thing with Monet wasn't even an argument. The Matt this was your idea. I asked for your advice and you told me to have a house meeting.
Ragan: I did tell you that, but you didn't sit and ask questions. He went on attack mode.
Britney: I don't think it's any relevance to talk about past arguments.
Ragan: I don't get the behavior. I don't get it. And I've seen a lot in my years. I don't know how to respond. When I see the behavior I have been seeing. I don't engage in it. I don't. The intent is not to be mean to you... When people aren't aware of their actions or how they might be interpreted by other people, it's not my job to make you see what's going on...
It goes into cycle mode and ends with Rachel breaking down and leaving. Britney says that Rachel doesn't live in reality. Rachel goes to DR. Brendon can't find her, and he goes over to the hammock.
Brendon: What's going on Ragan? Trying to F her up more? Last week, she was your best friend. This week, you're being an a- hole to her.
Ragan: I'm not trying to f her up.
Brendon: You go from being her best friend, to stabbing her in the back. You had a hand in Rachel going up.
Ragan: I did no such thing.
Brendon: You're a pair!
Ragan: Right. We're the gruesome twosome.
Britney starts to laugh.
Brendon: You're a douche bag.
Ragan: You're a Neanderthal.
Brendon corrects his pronunciation.
Britney laughs louder. Britney gets up and imitates Brendon's walk. Brendon and Britney get into an argument. He asks her how does she like Nick banging all the chicks while she's in the house. She breaks down.
- Brendon goes inside. trying to go to the DR, but is told it's unavailable.
- Lane takes Britney to the hammock. She says she doesn't understand why Brendon would make it so personal.
- Brendon is talking to himself in the living room outside the DR. "I can't stand by and pretend that everything is okay."
- Britney goes inside to get some coffee, staring at Brendon. She says, "No wonder your family doesn't support you, you humiliate them."
- She goes outside, and tells the mob. Kathy congratulates her and says she is proud of her.
- They speculate whether Brendon will voluntarily exit the game.
- They get libations. Brendon comes out and takes the white wine.
- Kathy and Enzo come inside. Kathy asks for the wine opener which Brendon put in his pocket. She tells him not to stoop to their level. Brendon tells them that Rachel tried repeatedly to apologize only to be slammed.
(MY shift is almost up. YAY!)
- Rachel comes out of DR smiling. Brendon runs after her like a stray puppy to tell her about his argument with Ragan including the "NeanderTal" comment...
