Big Brother 12: Friday Afternoon
Good afternoon, BB Lovers! The morning on the Big Brother Live Feeds was full of sniping about Rachel and Brendon and speculation about Pandora's Box, due to the fact that Matt's been locked out of his HoH room for hours, and this is a BB savvy crew.
Further, they are all still locked inside the house and have been since the comp ended last night. The HGs are torn between thinking BB is tearing down the comp or building something new. I lean on the side of building...
If you'd like a full accounting of the morning and lunch hour, please check out Genie's Posts: Friday Morning and Lunch Time.
Brendon, Kathy, Lane, Matt, Britney and Ragan are gathered, chatting, preparing food and eating...
Lane: How many apples grow on a tree?
Ragan: I dunno.
Lane: Brendon, how many apples grow on a tree?
Lane: Nope. All of em.
I'll let you know when it picks up. ;)
Britney: I wanna go to the Cabana.
Ragan: I wanna go outside!
Kathy: I'll go with ya.
BB: Ragan, please come to the Diary Room.
Rachel enters the kitchen, Brendon gives her a kiss and asks if she feels better...
Matt, Kathy and Britney repair to the Cabana Room. Lane comes to join them after a few minutes. The conversation is extremely limited. More noise is coming from Kathy's cereal bowl than anyone's mouths.. except hers.
1:16pm BBT - Lane & Britney sneak away, sticking Matt with Kathy. Lane makes his way to Jumanji and has a little whisper with Ragan, then over to the Storage Room to gather food.
Matt & Ragan
Matt: Have they asked about nominations at all? No?? All about Kristen and stuff?
Ragan: About Kristen, about the competition...
Ragan tells Matt about his conversation with Rachel. She told him people were throwing people under the bus, but wouldn't name names...
Matt: I can't believe that they didn't even bring up...
Ragan: I think they know..
Matt: That they're toast.
Kathy enters. End of game talk. She leaves. Game resumes.
Ragan: Please say something about sportsmanship in your speech. Please please please.
Matt: I don't know.. I have to consider jury votes now... I can't say go f yourself. Truth be told, I know they're gonna wanna talk to me, and I will absolutely...
Ragan: Got it. Oh my gosh. I'm so tired of being on lockdown.
Matt: If I go into HoH, and there's nothing new, I'm gonna be so bummed. I hate when they make the bed. I know they're just trying to be nice.
Ragan gives a demonstration of how most people would like their beds made, versus how Matt would like it... Matt loves the Matt version so much, he crawls right in.
Matt: Look at that. It's so inviting.
Ragan: I'm trying to imagine you as a kid.. Like, was it always that way?
Matt: I like the claustrophobia of it.
Rachel enters... She's had enough waiting to talk, and she's quite willing to do it in front of Ragan. Serious game talk ensues... Rachel's pleading her case to Matt, and when Rachel says that Ragan can stay, because the two of them are a pair, Ragan takes over the conversation, putting her on the defensive... Harsh words and lots of them coming from Ragan to Rachel, and on the return.
**Please catch this on flashback. Ragan's speaking very fast, and I'm not ready for him...
1:38pm BBT - Brendon enters the room. Ragan has a seat, and Matt takes over the conversation, bringing it back to a much calmer place. Then Ragan and Rachel get back into it.
The feeds pan out to show that every HG in the house is listening to this conversation, from the hall way, from the kitchen, etc...
Ragan & Brendon leave, and Rachel and Matt carry on. Matt apologizes for what just happened, and works the jury vote as much as possible, considering what he's about to do. Rachel overhears Brendon and Ragan going at it and takes off to put a stop to that. Britney enters. Goes. Brendon comes in. Matt explains to Brendon what just happened, which has nothing to do with the original point of the discussion...
Rachel: And I don't need Ragan telling the entire house about what just happened.
Matt: Is that what he's doing?
Matt: Well, that's not a good idea. Maybe you wanna stop that.
Rachel runs out the the dining table, where she finds Ragan telling everyone and Brendon and Ragan exchanging words, and she tries to save the situation.
Spark up the feeds, folks. They're getting very testy in there.
1:49pm BBT -
Rachel and Brendon head back into the Cabana Room to talk to Matt.
Ragan and whoever else is in earshot continue at the dining table. The only difference in the sniping this afternoon is that now it was directed to Rachel directly, instead of behind her back.
Matt: Strategically, for me, it is better to keep you guys in the house... on a week to week basis. It's obvious what the house wants, but my decisions are done with my best interest in mind. All I can do is forget about personal stuff, and do what I think is smart.
The conversation between Rachel, Matt & Brendon is ongoing and important. Rachel's giving it her best. Matt's giving it his best for jury votes.
Matt: I was telling her before you got in. The reason I said I wasn't interested in making a deal last week was because I wasn't sure... and I didn't wanna make a deal and backstab you. It's not how I run things. I don't want you thinking that last week, putting you up was in my head.. or that it's in my head this week.
Rachel: I know you have to think about all these things...
Matt: What were you thinking before you walked in this door?
Rachel: I was thinking I'm f'd...
Matt: What have you discussed...
Rachel: Our whole game play was to come to you and ask what you're thinking... I want to know what you're thinking, and I'm making suggestions..
Matt: Good, I like suggestions.
Rachel: My suggestion is, it's better to have people on your side who are winning things..
Matt: My whole thing is, is this early in the season or late in the season... It's a sh*tty time to be HoH.
Brendon: Also, if you get rid of us now, it's going to come to pass even sooner that friends have to get rid of friends..
Matt: I just gotta figure out how I wanna play it. If we were a final 3. I'd win Endurance, then you'd win quiz, and you'd pick him.
Rachel: Final 4 and final 3, the most important thing is PoV... On another note, 8 other people in this house hate me...
Matt: because we're ass kickers. Let's call a spade a spade.
BB: Matt, please come to the diary room.
Off he goes... Brendon has returned, and Rachel asks if Ragan was out there talking. Brendon says he didn't hear any more about it. Rachel suggests Brendon pull Ragan aside and apologize to him...
Rachel: Please, just for me, pull him aside in a neutral situation, and apologize to him.
BB: Houseguests... The lockdown is over. You are now free to move about the house...
The vast majority of the HGs head outside, many with huge piles of laundry to be done. Kathy's on her perch, smoking.
***NOTE: Matt is in the DR, and we are still expecting Pandora's Box, as are many of the HGs.
2:25pm BBT Bubbles!
***FYI - As of 2 hours ago, Jeff tweeted that he was surfing in Malibu... That's a hop, skip and a jump over the canyon from where the HGs are... ;)
2:36pm BBT - Trivia!
2:58pm BBT - Feeds are back!
Matt has opened Pandora's Box!
Matt: Sorry guys. I always said I would open it... One thing I asked was, is it bad? And he said, I can't tell you.
Enzo: So you got hit up with Pandora's cock?
Matt: It was cool to that question mark. That room is big.. Bigger than any of the bedrooms.. All gold walls.
Rachel: Oooh! What if it was what America voted on.
Matt: Man, my heart's still racing. It would've been fun, just to see it.
Rachel: I'm excited for you, Matt.
Matt: Like, if it's not over?
Matt: I just hope they don't keep us up all night...
Britney: No matter what it is, it'll be different.
Matt: You're ok with it, right?
