Big Brother 12: Kristen's Bold Move
Good evening, Big Brother Lovers!
It's 6pm BBT, and as we check in on the live feeds, Kristen is making her pitch to stay to Lane. Kathy is helping...
Kathy: Who is Rachel. Nobody knows. I don't even think she knows.
Kristen: The thing is to make a bold play.
***This "bold play" Kristen's talking about is to keep her, because that's what Rachel doesn't want, and why give her what she wants? Kristen has been selling this bold play to anyone who will listen this afternoon. Incidentally, Kathy has already come out as a vote for her to stay... The kiss of death in BB12.
Lots of talk about Janelle and how Rachel is modeling herself after her... especially with the "Floaters get your life vests" comment.
Lane: She already had in her head what she was gonna say if she won HoH.
Kristen: Her logic just doesn't make any sense.
Lane: Why would she not want more women in the game.
Kathy: She doesn't want any women in the game. She wants to be the only one.
Lane: It's.. she.. you're both well liked in the house, but she thinks she can persuade Hayden easier than you.. You've proven that, so she wants you out of the house. That's the only reason.
Kristen: I'm just honest. That's the way I am.
Lane: You have mad respect from me for putting up with that arguing.. You held it back. I would've forgotten the cameras were on.
Lane goes off to play pool, leaving Kathy and Kristen smoking on the couch... and talking about Rachel.
Kristen: I don't want her to get her way.
Kathy: And she hates that. She wants to be the center of attention. Makes me sick.
Kristen: And she thinks I'm giving up too.
Kathy: Oh, does she?
Kristen: Yeah.. she keeps asking people, "How's Kristen?" I'm fine, b*tch. I'm not going anywhere... And I'd love nothing more than for Andrew to see that I'm still in this house. Bastard.
Kathy: Oh, I know.
The bash goes on... Then Kristen starts counting potential votes... Among them are Kathy (a sure thing), Matt (wrong), Britney, Ragan...
Kristen: If I leave, the 3 girls that are left are Rachel, Britney and you, and everyone still looks at you as a floater..
Matt & Britney join them on the couch... Feeding time.
Britney: What're you up to?
Kristen: Game talkin'. What else am I gonna do?
Britney: Oh cool... I love how you're up front about it. You can game talk me later.
Kristen: I intend to.
Matt: Power point presentation, graphics, charts...
Enzo joins them on the couch too...
Kathy goes inside to grab some food for herself and Kristen. Lane joins.. The backyard couch is the dining table this evening.. Friendly chatter... Ragan joins..
Britney: How goes the unitard.
Kristen: Fab. I just had a cigarette while jazzercizing...
There will be a pool tournament this evening, starting very soon.
The couch clears out for the pool tournament, until it's only Ragan and Kristen. He asks her if her DR made her feel better. She says it did, and she wishes she could tell him more about it.
Kristen: The more and more I think about it, in this case, I'm not sure it's going to be a majority thing, because people are really going to have to think: who's going to benefit me more in this game. Two huge competitors haven't been up against each other before. Everyone's gonna have to consider that. Like, honestly, for you, I think it would benefit you more to keep me.
Kathy is sitting there, silently...
Ragan: Who else have you got?
Kristen: So far, Kathy.
Ragan: That's a given.
Kristen: Since I've been in this house, I've laid everything out on the line, as is, which is a very different approach.. Like, nobody can say I'm a snake or a liar.
Ragan: Have you talked to Britney and Enzo?
Kristen: I'm gonna talk to everyone. At first, I wasn't gonna talk to Brendon, but I should, because at a certain point, Hayden's gonna be a bigger threat to Brendon than I would be.
Kristen: It's just the truth.
Kristen: I just think it's time for the house to start thinking about what's more beneficial to them in the game.. And keeping Hayden isn't for more than half the people in the game.
Ragan: The problem is, if the numbers are against them, it becomes dangerous for them.. But if you can make that case.
Kristen: The point is, why does Rachel want me out of the house so badly, when Hayden's gonna turn around and do the exact same thing to them, and he's already won an Hoh.
Ragan: I think that you have a case to bring to Brendon then.. Who does he want to compete against in the next HoH?
Kristen: It kills me to have to do this, but I'm on the block for personal reasons, and I don't wanna leave this house.
Ragan advises her to just talk to the both of them, since that's how they work.
Ragan: You're very smart. I think you know which votes you can get, and which are the harder votes. You have to work there first.
Rachel and Brendon join the group on the couch, ending the conversation in progress... THey eat in virtual silence, bookended by the joyful spirits of Kathy & Kristen.
Hayden joins the couch crew and conversation returns.
Rachel and Brendon leave the couch and the silent bookends, Kristen & Kathy, resume happy conversation. Give them a moment.. they'll start bashing. Oh! There it is.
The women of the house are gathered on the couch, talking about family... Britney's presence is this only thing keeping conversation moving and positive.
The guys are all gathered around the pool table, being guys, making small talk and avoiding the confrontation and unpleasantness that may erupt from the women...
Britney & Kristen
Lather, rinse, repeat... The Bold Move...
Britney: I think you should have the conversation for sure, just be careful with what you say to Matt. Lane and Enzo are cool though. Just keep talking to people.
Kristen: This sucks! Even if I stay, it sucks that this happened so early. I just feel like I'm such an asset to someone, because I'm so honest, and I do what's right. I'm an asset, and somebody needs to think about that. I don't think there are too many people in the house like me. Kathy is surprisingly honest and straightforward (***BAHAHAHAHA), but she's not a competitor.. and people need to consider what's best for them... And another reason I think Rachel wants me gone is that for Brendon, it's worse to have Hayden here, but for her, it's worse to have me here. I'm gonna talk to Brendon about that...
Britney: Alright, well keep me posted.
Kristen: I will.
Britney: Thanks for the talk.
Britney skedaddles out of there fast!
Backyard - Couch
Rachel & Kathy
Rachel's explaining to Kathy how a double eviction week works. Ragan's involved in the conversation too, for backup, from across the yard... Then he comes to join them on the couch. He's got more details on the double eviction.
As Kristen isn't present, Kathy deigns to be pleasant and chatty with Rachel...
Around the house...
- Big Brother 101 continues on the couch, with Kathy, Ragan and Rachel.
- Britney's playing pool with Brendon, telling him that Kristen just appealed to her for a vote, and that she'll be talking to everyone...
- Enzo's getting some cardio on the elliptical...
- Kristen & Hayden are in the Cabana Room, making eyes and playing footsie, literally. She tells him she's campaigning, but she'll never say anything bad about him, just what's good about her.
- Lane's messing around with the lasso...
Lane and Britney, the BB12 should've been siblings, take to wrasslin'
They have 4 bottles of wine... Sangria will be made shortly...
For the moment...
- Enzo & Matt are playing pool...
- Rachel's on the elliptical...
- Britney, Hayden and Lane are laughing together on the double chaise, and watching the pool match...
- Kathy & Kristen are holed up in the Cabana room, talking smack about Rachel.
Ragan and Hayden
Ragan: I really think it's gonna be a house vote. Here's the thing.. You should make logical cases to everyone, just as Kristen should...
Hayden: I still feel like..
Ragan: This is what I told Kristen, and I told her I would tell you exactly the same thing. Campaigning for yourself is vastly different from campaigning against someone else. You both are strong players. I think it's an uphill battle for Kristen, but the flip of that is, I don't think you should be complacent.
Hayden: I don't feel safe at all. If the vote was tonight, I feel like I could win 4-3 or 5-2... but it's not til Thursday, and a lot can change.
Ragan: I think it's gonna be a 6-1 vote. I'm not saying it should be, but I think it will be. You're both great people and strong competitors... It's not like last week where you can just sit back and watch someone self-destruct. I think ultimately, most people in the house feel the same as I do, so the person who stays in the house will be the most logical choice... This isn't gonna be an emotional choice, it's gonna be what makes sense... So the conversations over the next couple days should focus on that. Your case is that you've been consistently good in everything you've done...
Hayden gets Ragan's gist... Keeping him helps the rest of the house get rid of Brendon and Rachel at some point.
Ragan: I just can't believe that one of you is gonna be gone at week four.
Hayden: It's pretty crazy.
Ragan: So have you and Kristen talked about how you're gonna handle this week?
Hayden: Yeah.. I told her I want her to campaign.
Rachel: Ragan! Do you wanna come take a bath with me and Britney??
