Big Brother 12: Friday Afternoon with Pandora & the Final 5
Good afternoon, BB Lovers! I hope you're having a fabulous Friday!
This morning on the live feeds, Lane opened Pandora's Box. There were 3 envelopes to choose from, and there will be 3 punishments/rewards for the House. Lane says he got $91.17. We gleefully await the arrival of the punishments & rewards for the house! So far, utensils and cups have been removed & will remain so for the week. Good news for those of us who hate the sound of clinking, bad news for slurping!
For all the details on the morning adventures of the BB12 HGs, please refer to Genie's excellent post: Early Friday-Five Alive
In the meantime, Lane's also got nominations to make today. According to his talks with Hayden and Britney, the intended target is Ragan, and Enzo is likeliest to be going up as the pawn... Lane and Hayden's only concern is that Britney could use the PoV on Ragan.
Britney: Quit liking Hayden better. Hayden only likes you, because Kristen got evicted. I've liked you since day one. I think your best bet is to just put up Enzo and Ragan, cuz one of those two's going home, period.
Lane: Enzo, (who is not in the room) I gotta put you up as the pawn.
Britney: And hopefully one of us wins PoV.
Lane: What do you mean, hopefully? We have to.
Britney: Honestly, if Enzo doesn't win the next 2 things, he is so lucky to have made it as far as he has.
Lane: You can play your social game and make it this far, but once you hit final 6, you've got to win.. or you're going home... I'm dead tired right now.
Britney: Me too, but I keep thinking we're gonna get these punishments..
Hayden has now joined Britney and Lane up in HoH...
Britney: I'm gonna fight for the PoV, so just relax.
Hayden: You're talking about the PoV queen here.
Lane: Next HoH is huge.
Britney: That's why I think it's so important to get Ragan out this week. He's gonna be pissed when he watches this season and sees I was against him the whole time.
It finally dawns on Hayden, Lane and Britney that the morph comp may be coming up soon...
***Our prediction is late tonight for PoV. Ragan has been studying the wall like his life depends on it, because it does.
Ragan & Enzo
Ragan: So they may stagger out our punishments.. Like, maybe America voted on no cups or silverware last night, and that'll be entertaining to see us do. But no silverware and cups isn't that bad. Like we can cut up the steak with the big knife, then just eat it with our hands...
Talk turns to the Saboteur... Enzo wonders if they'll ever reveal it. Ragan says he thinks they may wait to the finale (or at least untiil he gets evicted). Then the lifetime friends. Ragan thinks it was Andrew and Brendon.
Enzo: It's almost over. This whole crazy experience...
Ragan: It's just that, we get out of here, and I immediately have to start working again..
Enzo: I'm gonna call work up and ask, can I just take a week, be with the baby, then I'll come back in? I took a leave of absence anyway..
Ragan: Are you gonna go to Vegas?
Ragan: I have to work the Monday following, but I hate to pass it up..
Hayden joins them. Ragan shares his theory on the punishments - that they're an America's vote deal, and they'll be spread out throughout the week. And punishment number 3 could be bringing someone in the house that they don't want to see. Enzo wonders if maybe that someone will come host the PoV tomorrow...
Enzo gives Hayden a new nickname, Shag - as in his hair. *point of order, I nicknamed him that 7 weeks ago. And Enzo's new nickname will be Shun. Shun and Shag.
Enzo: What's Britney up there tryin' to talk game?
Hayden: Yeah. It might be better if one of us goes up as the pawn.
***The soft sell begins.
Hayden: Let's say it's me and Ragan up, and Ragan wins, then Lane puts Britney up and Britney goes home.
Enzo: But is Lane gonna oust her like that?
Enzo: I think we can get Ragan on board for that then...
Hayden: You gotta chance to win the 1/2 million dollars, bro. Don't think you don't.
Enzo: There's been people who won nothing til the last HoH and then won. Look at Jordan last season. It's PoV tomorrow, man. We gotta win. Try your hardest. We win, we're probably going to the final 3 man.
Enzo: I almost wish he'd put Britney up now.. so she's already up there. Then it just depends what Ragan does. If he wins the pov, if he doesn't.
Hayden: You mean put Britney up with one of us? Then she knows about our deal..
Enzo: Just tell Britney you're a pawn, you're safe.. It'll be a split.. We'll get Ragan on board to vote her out, if he wins... Me n you could go to Ragan and tell him to vote her out. That's what I would do.. Just put up Britney and Ragan. Whoever wins survives another week. You put up those 2 people, you know one of em's goin' home.
***Enzo's talking in circles, but he gets there in the last sentence.
Lane comes outside.
Enzo: It's up to you, bro. Whatever you wanna do.
Lane: I don't wanna put you up as a pawn. You just got off the block.
Enzo: I think we can get Rgan on board to vote her out.
Hayden: No matter what, the 3 of us are goin' to F4. Say if it's me or you up against Ragan. Ragan wins PoV, he goes off, Britney goes on. Lane has the tie breaker vote. I think that's probably a good move. That way we can keep our f4 deal with Britney..
Enzo: I don't really care about her vote. She'll probably vote for one of us anyway. After Ragan, she'll have to. I'm just scared if they make a power move.. I don't think Britney'll use it on Ragan if she wins PoV.
Lane: You wanna go up as the pawn, Hayden? It's been a while.
Enzo: It's been a minute, bro. You wanna play a pool game for this? Whoever loses goes up as the pawn?
Lane: This is the worst HoH.
Enzo: Just puttem both up. F it.
Lane: I promised her with the whole Matt deal. If she put Matt up, I wouldn't put her up if I won HoH.
They realize the next HoH will likely be endurance, so they really need to get Ragan out.
Hayden and Enzo agree: Either one of those 2 go to the final 2, they'll beat us.
Enzo: So you don't wanna go up on the block?
Lane: You haven't been up in a while. It's different now.
Enzo believes that Ragan and Britney both want each other out more than they want any of the 3 of them out..
Enzo: All season long, we've picked who leaves the house. It's like, you can nominate whoever you want, but we choose who leaves.
Hayden realizes that Enzo's absolutely right about that. They still bemoan the loss of Kathy, instead of Matt, the week he had the DPOV.
Lane: We have a lot of what ifs, but we're here now.
The guys are very clear that they need to win all the comps now. They're having a giggle that "we 3 dummies" made it this far, and they admit to having used Matt to get them as far as they are - since he got all the blood on his hands.
***Perhaps go inside and stare at the memory wall a bit? Hmmmm??? C'mon boys. Enough yammering. Ragan knows who has a freckle and who has a wrinkle... and where..
Enzo: I bite my tongue every time Ragan talks about Matt, saying what a good guy he is. I'm like, we had a Brigade, ad we flipped it on him. You don't understand..
Enzo: I know you gotta sucky decision, dude.. It's up to you. You gotta come up with something.
Lane: I can definitely put Hayden up... You were just up last week.
Enzo: I trust you.
Lane: I'll be someone's pawn next week.
Enzo: I don't think Britney's leavin' that room up there today.
Lane: She's nappin.
2:13pm Hayden rejoins Lane and Enzo by the jacuzzi... Ragan is napping in Taj... Britney's resting in HoH...
Talk turns to the coming PoV. They think it might be morph, because Britney said so, and start talking about people's faces. Then quickly on to other subjects, such as Matt's lie about his age, which Ragan told them all about last night.
Enzo wants a saboteur message from Matt, so they can put it to bed, once and for all.
Hayden: We're in the final four, man.
Enzo: It's gonna happen. Tomorrow we win PoV, we celebrate. What'd we call it? FG. Final Group.
Hayden: No GBs for the BGs til the FG.
*No goodbyes for the brigade til the final group.
Enzo: 3 people going for it.. We have a 75% chance of winning HoH. Let it play out, bro. We all play our hardest in every competition. What happens happens. I think people respect what we've done here. I just wish they'd take this penguin suit away already. I wanna be shunned from it, yo.
Brief bubbles, and then Enzo's putting his suit back on.
Enzo: One of them's goin' home this week. We're good. Our sh*t is money, yo.
Around the House...
- Lane's just returned to HoH and inadvertently woken Britney.
- Britney's resting in the HoH bed.
- Ragan's still napping in Taj.
- Enzo & Hayden are chilling on the couch, talking about their grandparents..
- Enzo & Hayden are running dates and events outside on the couch... and talking about Ragan's lack of understanding about how aligned they are... their perception is incredibly flawed, but they're secure in it.
- Lane's chilling in the Cabana Room.
- Britney's napping in HoH & Ragan's napping in Taj.
Scratch that. Now Ragan's awake now and studying quietly and with great intensity in Taj...
Hayden and Enzo fall into a comfortable silence, and Hayden strikes a pose, but is deaf to my willing him to move his leg and show his abs, so I can cap them...
Hayden & Britney
Hayden and Enzo both head inside... Hayden goes up to the HoH Room to listen to music. He asks where Lane is. Britney doesn't know.. She's still napping, but talking about getting up to take a shower... and she does... leaving Hayden in the HoH alone.
Ragan has changed venues as well... Exchanging Taj for the backyard couch, now that it's vacant... His manic study monologue continues... He runs through events, then moves on to distinguishing facial features of all the HGs...
Around the house...
- Ragan goes inside and heads into the bathroom, where Britney is showering... Chatter...
- Hayden's in HoH listening to music.
- Lane's showering in HoH.
- Enzo's in the DR
HoH - Camera 3
Lane finishes up in the shower. Enzo gets out of the DR and joins Hayden in HoH, where he immediately puts the headphones on, more interested in spending a little time with Eminem.
Around the house...
- Ragan has moved his studies back into Taj.
- Britney's in the bathroom, freshly showered and cleaning her ears.
- Enzo & Lane are chatting in HoH.
Lane: You think I should go with Hayden, just 'cause he hasn't been up there?
Enzo: I think you should go with Britney... Tell em both they're pawns. What? Hayden's scared to go up?
Lane: I don't care if he's scared. You were already up there last week. I'm just gonna tell Hayden, man, I can't do it to Enzo again, he was just up there last week.
Enzo: Either way, man. Britney's not gonna f--k with you anyway. She wouldn't use the PoV on him anyway. What'd she say? She doesn't wanna go up at all?
Lane: No. Plus bringing up the whole deal with Matt..
Enzo: That's true. Then you go back on your word.. That's cool. As long as she knows she gotta win the pov.
Lane: She knows that. It's just Hayden hasn't been up in a while...
Enzo: And when Hayden's nervous, he plays his ass off. Ragan we know. He's gotta go up. Let's say Britney wins PoV, I just don't want Ragan getting pulled off. SHe looks like she's easily manipulated.
Enzo: Dude, you got the 5Gs. You got a Hawaii trip. You can say something to your family..
Lane: And you might not even be up there that long.
Enzo: Exactly. Win something tomorrow.. and you come off...
Lane: And Britney goes up.
Enzo: Probably the best bet is to take Ragan out... Sh*t man.I wish we had a double elimination this week too.
Lane: No joke, man.
Enzo: I just got off yesterday! I was on the block yesterday.
Lane: Hayden's a nice guy. He'll understand.
Enzo: Hopefully we'll get a nice luxurious on Sunday.. I'll win tomorrow, then a nice luxurious comp on Sunday..
They wonder when the Nomination Ceremony might be. Me too!
Ragan comes up to the HoH, and BB calls him immediately to the DR...
Lane tells Hayden he may put him up as the pawn... Hayden says he trusts Lane, no matter what, and he wont be angry, if that's what Lane decides he needs to do, however, he offers Lane the idea to tell Enzo that it wouldn't be right to put Hayden up, because he wasn't even able to play for HoH... having just won the DE HoH.
Lane & Hayden
Britney's just about finished getting gussied up for the nomination ceremony, and she comes in to help Lane with his nomination speech - the standard part.. She gives him the rundown, then tells him the DR will make him practice it a dozen times anyway. Talk turns to dinner - BBQ Chicken was on the menu, but Brit says it'll be hard to shred it with no utensils.
Waiting, waiting, waiting for the Nomination Ceremony!
Ragan & Lane
Lane asks Ragan if he thinks they'll do the face comp (Morph), and Ragan says they might, but maybe not, because they've done it so much lately... It's a clear misdirection on his part. Ragan's been practicing for the morph like nobody's business.
Hayden joins them...
Ragan: Are you gonna be funny with your speeches?
Lane: I don't know yet.
Ragan: I think you should.. You're a funny guy, and it'll be finally an opportunity to do a funny nomination. We haven't had one all season.
Lane, Ragan and Hayden are chilling in the Living Room.. Britney enters... Meanwhile Enzo's upstairs listening to music in the HoH.
BB: Lane, please come to the Diary Room.
Lane: Wat do you want??? This is the 3rd time I've been there.
Carolyn: G-d willing, it's time for the Nomination Ceremony, genius.
4:36pm BBT - Bubbles!! and back.. grrrrr! and Bubbles!! and back.
Britney: I wonder why they haven't locked us down yet.
Carolyn: Me too!
Britney: Where's Enzo?
Hayden: Up listening to music.
Britney: I guess I could do dishes.
Lane emerges from the DR.
Lane: We're about to get locked down.
Britney: Why are you back out here?!
Lane: They said like 2 minutes...
4:40pm BBT - Bubbles! Then back for Hayden and Britney to tidy up the living room..
4:42pm BBT - TRIVIA!! Let the Nomination Ceremony Begin!!!!
We'll return with a new top post titled "Nomination Ceremony Spoiler" shortly!
