BB12: Welcome to Saboteur Monday
Hello BB Dishers!
It's been non-stop mayhem on the live feeds until 7:48 AM BBT today when Ragan goes out to the hammock and talks game to us. (Cams 3&4) Actually, the action never stopped, because Ragan kept going and going and going.
This was the crowing end to a weekend filled with chaos, emotional upheaval and unprecedented BB machinations!
If you have not been around, boy did you miss a doozy! Rachel was brought into the house around 3 PM BBT on Saturday and her mission was to get answers from all the HGs. Whether she got her answers or not, she sent the HGs into a fresh bout of paranoia and confusion. Before leaving around 11:30 AM BBT on Sunday, she left Brendon a message in pretzels spelling out Matt's name.
When Brendon came back, after a day of pampering, he was flooded with HGs trying to influence his decision. Matt or Britney? Britney or Matt?
The Brigade train left the station as Hayden and Enzo are leaning towards Brendon over Matt; and Matt, from his perspective, thinks that Britney and Ragan are a stronger alliance as they have proven themselves in competitions. Lane seems to be up for grabs, though his mistrust in Matt is also growing; which side he will choose, if there are still the same sides next week, depends whether Britney will survive this week.
The cherry on the cake was a string of Saboteur messages that started with "Tomorrow's competition will change the course of the game" around 8:30 PM BBT last night and lasted until around 6: 30 AM BBT with the final one, "Who do you trust in tomorrow's competition?"
The House Guests are expecting another HoH Competition today which is about as likely as King Tut joining the game. Here are the compelling reasons that this is just another way for Ragan to sabotage them:
- AGP would not give Ragan a heads up about an upcoming competition.
- There needs to be a PoV Ceremony first.
- There needs to be an Eviction second.
- CBS would be promoting the heck out of this.
For a full breakdown of late last night's and early morning's happenings and to be pointed to other pertinent posts, please refer to Carolyn's splendid Overnight/Early Morning Report!
Whatever the case may be, one thing is for sure, this is going to be a crazy week, and no amount of transcribing will do it justice! It's time to take advantage the 3 day free trial , and see for yourselves what all the fuss is about!
8:37 AM BBT
Ragan wakes Matt up at to talk.
Ragan: I feel comfortable blowing smoke up his ass.... I wonder who are people more threatened by? You and me or Britney and Lane?
Matt: Me and you... but that could work in our favor because we're targets.
Ragan: I have been thinking of votes for you. This might be a time to be thinking of final 4 situations... I was thinking trying to get Enzo and Hayden's votes because they're together...
He goes over all the things he said in his monologue.
Ragan: If you look at Britney and I. Britney has more house knowledge. Lane... has not been doing everything they can in competitions. ..
Ragan is rambling so I will sum up. He needs to talk to Brendon explicitly or Matt will be the replacement. They both believe that Britney made a deal with Brendon. Ragan doesn't want to be in the position of making promises and not keeping them. Matt is floating the idea that the others will have a hard time choosing between himself and Lane (if he is the replacement).
Matt: If there is an eviction today, expect a surprise! Or not...
Matt suggests they tell Lane that they will throw HoH to him because he thinks that HoH is noy as important next week. Ragan believes that everyone wants to keep Kathy around.
Matt: I don't. I want her gone after Brendon. (**Or possibly when you put her up during the DPoV?)
Matt wants Ragan to put him up against Brendon so he can be the one to beat Brendon in the PoV. Just because... They are going through all the reasons why each person would not be loyal to Brendon.
Ragan: I don't want to give up another HoH... Not that you didn't legitimately one.
Matt: If it makes you feel uncomfortable, let me go up, and we can work on votes afterwards.
Ragan: So should I go talk to him?
Matt: It's worth a shot. He is such a dummy, so you talking to him before the ceremony would be a good idea.
Ragan: (whining) I hate to talk to him.
Matt: Like I said if you feel uncomfortable, don't.
Ragan: I want you to stay more than I hate him...
Matt laughs. Ragan practices his pitch to Brendon.
Ragan: It's me being murky without talking about a deal.
Matt: Don't make a solid deal. Just be ambiguous about it and get into his head.
Ragan: Another thing I could say, but that will turn the whole house against me, I know for a fact that several people you have deals with are planning on getting you out. I could say without throwing anyone under the bus... there is one person in the house that has kept his word to you. There's one person in the house that has been trying in every competition and that's you.
Matt laughs: Yeah.
Ragan is basically trying to work out a way to keep Matt from going up on the block without making any solid deals with Brendon. He has so little regard for Brendon that he thinks making a deal with him is not an option. Matt, of course, is still in his unconcerned DPoV haze...
Ragan: Cuz you wouldn't make a deal you wouldn't have intention of keeping?
Matt: No, I would just throw the HoH. I think the only one in the house who wouldn't keep a deal is Enzo (other than Brendon in fact).
Ragan is going over what he will say when he puts Brendon up in the HoH he hasn't won yet...
Matt: Just say you aren't comfortable making a deal with him because he made deals that he hasn't kept.
Ragan is all over that idea. He wants to talk to him now. Matt tells him to go now that he's groggy. Ragan wants to let him leave. Matt says that they might let them sleep until it's time for PoV Ceremony Lock Down. Ragan goes over what he will say to Brendon yet again...
Ragan: I feel good about this. It's the most logical choice which he probably won't pick.
9: 18 AM BBT
Feeds went to bubbles.
9: 28 AM BBT
Ragan & Brendon
Ragan: The first thing I'm going to say. There are people in this house that are complete straight shooters. A lot of sh*t has gone down this week. A lot of people have told me that I am the target this week. I base my decisions on logic. A lot of stuff has happened in the game that's past. I want to move forward... there has to be a vote of confidence in the moves you're making in the game... You are one person among several people who is an obstacle in my mind for me winning the game. What makes your case unique is you're playing the game alone... What came to light in my mind this week is how expendable I am. I am aware of all of that stuff... If I were to win HoH there a lot of things I would have to take into consideration...
Ragan: Two pieces of the puzzle are what decision you make and who'e left. What's less frightening is a single player rather than a few that I have to get out. The second talking point is fiction vs reality in the game... From what you've said there are people in the game who have said one thing and have done something different... I'm sure you realize that a number of deals you've made are probably BS.
Ragan: Another thing you're probably aware that there a lot of people who have gone into competitions and thrown them. There is one person who may have not liked you, but has not lied to you, but who has not thrown a single competition in the game and that is Matt. If I were you, I would weigh that history over the deals you may have made... The final talking point... if I were in your shoes, I would have you take into consideration, if Britney goes up against Lane there is no question that Britney goes home. If Matt goes on the block, it's not as clear cut. He is close to these boys... there are conversations I've picked up.. I know you have a deal with Matt,. I know you have a deal with Britney... Do I want to break a deal with someone who is guaranteed to go home or do I want to break a deal who will stay?
Brendon: I really wanted you to win the competition.
Ragan: I don't want to go into the past.
Brendon: I'm not worried about either of those people staying in the game... What I'm gambling with is if I leave Matt stay in the game you're still a pair.
Ragan: I disagree. Britney and Lane...
Brendon: Britney will go home.... Lane is not someone people will want to go after.
Ragan: Who you leave in the house is as important as who you take out.... People have us (Matt and I) on their radar Britney and Lane... People like Lane.
Brendon: And I see Lane making it far in the game
Ragan: Here is someone who is never going to be a target... For you it's get the target off my back
Brendon: For me it's reduce the target off my back. There are people who want Britney gone. There are people who want Matt gone. Rachel wants Matt gone cause he is the one who took her out.
Ragan: Here's where fiction and reality comes into play.... You have said about people letting others get blood on their hands. That;'s why Rachel wants Matt out.
Brendon: I know. That's why I told him that I didn't want him out and I wanted him to win...
Talk turns to eye opening experiences in the house, but when Ragan was alone in Have Not room he was the one to tell them to go see how Ragan is.
Ragan: The question becomes... You can't have it both ways... Everybody who is making decisions in the game is taking the heat. Who changes this. You have to think who doesn't throw competitions... Matt has made deals with you in this game and he hasn't broken them..
Brendon: I agree but we are at the point in the game that everyone will break deals.
Ragan: The only thing you have to go off of is the past.
Brendon: Matt could easily throw it to you and you could...
Ragan: Britney told me you said that I threw both those competitions.
Brendon: I said you threw the second one... Ant doubt I had if you as a competitor is completely gone now.
Ragan: There was a conversation in both instances that both of us said we could drop right now, we trusted each other... in both instances we said F it, we like these competitions, let's see it to the end...
Brendon says that he has to consider Rachel's request and Ragan pounds home that he needs to play the game for himself not for Rachel whose game is done. Brendon asks Ragan what he would promise him. Ragan says that he does not feel comfortable making a deal since he is about to break his deal with Matt. Brendon says he wouldn't break the deal if Rachel hadn't intervened (*with the pretzel suggestion). Ragan is trying very hard to get Brendon to see the game objectively and Brendon is still playing Medieval BB.
Ragan: Did you try to make a deal with Britney and she said no?
Ragan: She said that she wouldn't make a deal with her.
Brendon: She said if you're going to try to send me home at least give me a chance. I was going to put her up. So when I put you and Lane up and I wanted her to get a chance to play a PoV, but she didn't have a chance to play the PoV...
Ragan: The thing I like about Britney is she will do and say exactly what she needs to do to stay in the game, and then there are people in the game who are honest to a fault.
This is ongoing and Ragan is determined to wear our fingers to the bone today!!
Ragan: Does Rachel want Matt to go and you leave shortly after? Or does Rachel want you to stay longer in the game and one of them to still go?
Brendon: I don't want you to think I am making promises to everybody. Matt, I didn't want to go. Britney, I wanted her to have the opportunity to play...
10:02 AM BBT
BB: Good Morning House Guests. It's time to get up for the day. (Are you kidding me?) The bedroom lights must stay on during the day.
BB: Brendon. Please go to the Diary Room.
And we have music!!!! Chris Brown - "Forever"
Wakey, Wakey House Guests! Ragan has a 17 hour head start on you!
10:06 AM BBT
- Lane is in the Storage room changing batteries and picking at his face.
- Ragan is in the still darkened Insect Room filling Matt in. (*If there were a talking competition, he would smoke them all.)
BB: The bedroom lights must stay on during the day. (**Please add: Ragan. Stop that!)
10: 13 AM BBT
Britney and Lane
Britney is getting ticked off at BB for all the repeat announcements. They chat a bit about his PoV speech. Talk to food and slop. Britney jokes that she will be picked him for a Have Not as an HoH.
Britney: The house was pissed when you and Hayden weren't picked. Especially when Ragan was picked for the 3rd time.
Lane: He will have to get over it.
Britney: Well, you'll have to get over it...
Lane: If you pick me and Hayden, all hell will break loose.
They talk about the possibility that there will be a competition today. Lane uses the rest room and keeps asking Britney if she will be able to hear him... (**shaking my head)
10:20 AM BBT
Brendon is in DR. They might be waking them up to get ready for the PoV ceremony.
10: 34 AM BBT
Still on Britney and Lane who have moved to Cabana. They are chit chatting about the Sab messages and Kathy's reaction. More chit chat. Nothing game changing :) They start arguing whether it's 3 weeks or 4 weeks left.
10: 44 AM BBT
Brendon & Britney
Brendon: Alright well. I don't have much time here. This is it. So. I've been going back and forth between you and Matt... There has been one person trying to tell me that I have to be careful whose word to trust. I didn't put you up this week and if I don't back door you, would you do the same for me?
Britney: Absolutely. 100%
Brendon: I don't want to send you home without the chance to win PoV. I just have to believe you. I have to have faith.
Britney: If you put up the other person you're thinking of, there is a good chance I would be the vote.
Brendon: Not really... Like I said I need you to win HoH next week.
Britney: I will win HoH (**and put your sorry butt on the block)
10: 48 AM BBT
BB: House Guests. This is a Lock Down. Please go outside and close the sliding glass door.
They shake on Britney's and Nick's relationship.
DR Leak: Someone giving Ragan directions for the PoV Ceremony and a lot of okays from Ragan.
10: 56 AM BBT
(*Control Room has been messing up a lot today with music leaks and extended DR leaks, and now they forgot to change it to Trivia screen?)
