Big Brother 12: Monday Morning, August 2nd
Happy Monday, BB Lovers!!
Are you ready for the PoV Ceremony?? The HGs aren't! They've got quite a bit more game talk to go this morning before that happens.
Today is going to be *nuts* on the live feeds! Before and after the PoV Ceremony!
If you haven't read the overnight report yet, ya gotta!
To sum up: When she went to bed last night, Britney was set to use the PoV on Hayden today, having made a deal for 2 weeks HoH and PoV safety with Hayden and Kristen, and with Rachel's approval...
Of course, Rachel doesn't know about the Kristen part. Nor does she know that all parties intend to break all deals made with her, and put her and Brendon up on the block as fast as humanly possible.
In late night talks with Brendon, Rachel regained a bit of sanity and game savvy, and will likely be trying to talk Britney out of using it this morning... She just has to figure out how to approach that. And is it too late??
8:44am BBT - Bubbles BRB Screen!!

We'll start the morning updates as soon as we see wakeful HGs!
And they're up!
Well, they're getting there, anyway.
Britney's doing her makeup, and having a morning bicker with Lane. Enzo's out on the couch, sans sunglasses...
BB: Good Morning, houseguests, it's time to get up for the day.
Kristen & Kathy
Kathy: I'm just being realistic.
Kristen: I think they just don't wanna cause waves with other people.
Kathy: Well, that's fine.
Kristen: I think that's why they'll probably put you up. If they keep me here, and you go home. I'm gonna be ruthless in this house... because having you here brings me to the way I am in my real life, and if you're not here, I'm just gonna go nuts on this house.
Kathy: Britney's just as bad as them. Everything she does...
Kristen: I know. I know.
Kathy and Kristen complain about all the noise last night. It's become part of their morning ritual together.
Meanwhile, out in the kitchen, Lane's telling Britney about a weird dream he had.
Kristen: Seriously, though, Kathy, if I stay here, I am gonna tear this house up.
Kathy: You can stay then. Fine with me.
Britney & Lane
They're busy being their charming, worry-free selves. Friendly, sibling style banter...
Britney: If I go home, and Nick has broken up with me, I'm gonna go ahead and marry Tim Tebow. It could happen, Lane.
Lane: I know it can. He wants the old Britney. The sweet Britney. The before you were on the tv show Britney.
Britney: That may be true.
Lane: Are you gonna go to the wrap party?
Britney: Yeah. I may be sad, depressed and comatose...
Lane: Expect the unexpected.
BB: Good morning, Houseguests. It's time to get up for the day.
Lane: You're gonna have to send someone in here. They're not gettin' up. Like a ninja.
Britney: A ninja warrior.
Adorable, funny banter continues... I'm saving my fingers for the coming drama... Kristen's in Taj, getting her hair all tucked in and smoothed so she can put the wig on.
Kristen passes through the kitchen area, grabs some coffee and heads outside. Funny banter between Lane & Britney continues, stopping only to say good morning to Kristen.
Brendon joins Britney & Lane
Brendon: What're you talkin' about?
Britney: Strip clubs. Would you date a girl who worked at a strip club?
Brendon: I don't even like going to strip clubs...
Lane tells about a girl who wouldn't give him his change... Enzo passes though.
Lane: It was my birthday, so my friends got me the biggest girl in there, and she wouldn't give me my change.
More stripper stories... Rachel sticks her head out of HoH, and Brendon calls up to her, asking for his hat.
Rachel comes down, hat in hand and heads over to the Storage Room to change her batteries. Britney continues trying to get Lane to get with the program and start picking women he actually wants to procreate with, so he can be "biologically relevant." Strip Club talk resumes...
Brendon, Britney & Lane...
Brendon starts telling about his stripping experience with a couple friends, and Lane's suddenly overcome with a need to pee... Not really, he's just playing the game - Stick Someone with Brendon - and he just got Britney, big time.
He's very proud of himself... sitting there smiling... not talking to Kathy, but likely making eye contact with Britney, to let her know, she got got this round.
Lane comes out of the bathroom, makes eye contact with Britney and carries on his merry way to the bedroom. A minute later, he passes back through, and Britney calls him out on it, asking him where he's going... Lane says he's going to wash his hands. He does, then makes a show of scooting outside, leaving Britney good and trapped. Conversation between Brendon and Britney continues, and has moved on to dating conservative people.
Britney & Lane
Britney: Sooo.. it's 10 o clock, and I still don't know whether or not I'm using the PoV.
Lane: Who else have you talked to?
Britney fills Lane in on some of the details, then Brendon comes over, ending that line of conversation. They begin to talk about the Coup d'Etat and what the rules were around it last season...
Britney gets up and walks away, giving Lane the stink eye on her way out and sticking Lane with Brendon for a talk about a push up program that after 6 weeks, you'r supposed to be able to do 100 consecutive pushups...
Britney goes to Kristen
Britney: I was talking to Rachel last night.. I think she feels unsure that you would come after her
Kristen: I told her straight out that I wouldn't.
Britney: I think Rachel's just gonna leave it up to me.
Kristen: I can't do everything I said I would do, as far as giving up my life for you, but I would still keep you off the block.. As long as you can keep us safe, we're gonna keep you safe. I think that.. It sucks that me and my friend have to be on the block, but it works out best this way, because otherwise it would be too suspect. Ultimately, you're the one making this move, so my priority is keeping you safe, over Rachel... But I'm not definitely going after Rachel.. I'm not gonna come gunning after her, unless something happens that I have to.
Rachel comes to the door and stands outside for a moment before entering. They compliment her hair..
Rachel: Thanks. I was gonna ask Britney if I could talk to her when you're done.
Rachel leaves to change her batteries. Kristen guarantees Britney her safety, in the event she does win HoH. Britney feels like double eviction is coming up soon, and this is a big deal.
Kristen: If you win HoH, we can talk about what's best. And if I win HoH, we can talk about what's best for you, because I don't wanna jeopardize you by putting certain people up.
Britney: If I use PoV today, you and Hayden will stay in the house, for sure.
Kristen: And we will have your back. The only thing I ask, is that if you have to put me up, please have it be as a pawn, not a target. Cuz that was my biggest sacrifice.. You're the one making the move, so there's no question, I'm gonna make a move for you.
They talk hypothetical next HoH...
Kristen: I'm not gonna say for sure I'm going after somebody yet, because it changes every day. The only way I would ever put you up is if it was the very end and I had no other choice.
Britney: Ok.. I'm gonna go up there and tell her you offered safety for you, me and her.
Kristen: And tell her that if either of us win HoH, we want her input about who to put up.
Talk turns to Kathy... and how she's only ever said she wants to make it to jury.
Kristen: I haven't even talked to Hayden about this, but do you really think the people in this house will want to keep me over Kathy?
Britney: I do.. and I think Brendon and Rachel would really like to get rid of her too... I think if you went up, you'd definitely have me, Enzo, Lane, Hayden. I think Ragan and Matt. I think it's 100% that you'd stay.
Kristen: I understand this move is being made so I can stay in the house...
Britney: And if I pulled you, it would've looked way too suspicious against us.
Kristen: The whole house would've loved it, but if Brendon wins HoH next week, you would've been screwed.
10:19am - 10:53am BBT
Britney & Rachel
Britney leaves to go upstairs and talk to Rachel in HoH...
Rachel: So, what did Kristen say?
Britney: I just asked to talk to her real quick, and I said, there's no way I would use PoV on you, no offense, but I may use it on Hayden... I said, I'm not doing it if Rachel doesn't want me to do it, and she's like, no I totally understand, Rachel and Brendon are totally safe... I'm really scared the double eviction is gonna be, not next Thursday, but the next one, and if we can get 2 weeks out of Kristen, like we did out of Hayden, then that protects us through the double eviction.
Rachel: That only leaves them Matt, Lane, Enzo and Ragan... I've thought about this all night long. We're literally making deals with our friends to sacrifice our enemies..
Britney: I know.. I know.. but if it's 2 weeks, that covers a double eviction... I don't want my friends to go home, but I don't want me to go home more.
Rachel: You have Brendon and I, 100%. By the same token, doing the deal with Hayden and Kristen leaves them in the house for the double eviction... To win the double eviction.. In that spot, who's she gonna put up? And then next week, whoever wins HoH, who're they gonna put up?
Britney: If Brendon wins HoH next week, he can put em straight back up.
Rachel: But what about the deal?
Britney: The deal is one-sided.. They can't put us up, but there's nothing to say we can't put them up.
Talk turns to Kathy...
Britney: I don't feel like Kathy guarantees Kristen stays. I think people are gonna scramble to do what you want.
Rachel: I think Ragan and Kristen are close.
Britney: They are, but Ragan, Matt and I are your friends... and we're gonna want to do what you say. I don't know. I'm just thinking double eviction week...
Rachel: That's smart.
Back to Kathy...
Britney: If it's a crap shoot, Kathy has as much of a chance as anyone, and she'd put up you and me.
Rachel: I just feel like this is so dangerous..
Britney: It is dangerous.. and bold...
Hemming and hawing...
Britney: So.. do you think we should get the deal with Hayden, put up Kathy, and still send Kristen home? If I pull off Hayden, I think the house will do what we want. I think Lane and Enzo will do what we want. I think if Hayden and Kristen make it through this week, they wont make it much longer, because now the whole house knows they're an alliance. They were trying to flyu under the radar and be secretive... but now.. At least if they are here, it does take the target off of you and Brendon a little bit. It's still there, but it's lessened.
Rachel reaffirms her complete commitment to Britney. Britney does same.
Britney: I feel like you and me can go super far. I feel like eventually, the two of you are gonna get split up, and I feel like you're the one who's gonna stay. I would obviously pick you to stay over Brendon.
Rachel hopes it never comes to that... Talk turns back to Kristen and how little Rachel trusts her. Then we divert to Kathy.
Britney: She's trying to secure votes and she's not even on the block yet. Based on principle alone, Kathy doesn't deserve to make it to the jury house.
Rachel takes it back to Kristen and her manipulative nature in the game...
Britney: I think that Hayden is trustworthy... but I think he's here for himself. He doesn't want me to pull Kristen off. I really think, yes they're together, but when it comes down to it, he wants to be here, more than he wants her to be here.
Rachel: I agree.
***Britney is masterful at the soft sell.
Rachel: The deal with Hayden is good for you, no matter who I put up, right?
Rachel: OK.. 'cause I'm thinking of someone else...
After some holding back, Rachel confesses... Lane. Britney suggests Matt instead. Rachel cant' because of last week.
Rachel: The reason I say Lane is because he'll guarantee Kristen goes home.
Britney: Well, if you want to 100% guarantee she goes home, it's probably better I don't even use the POV...
***Lane?? That doesn't work for Britney. lol.
Talk reverts to Kristen and her behavior this week... starting way back at the HoH reveal. Britney brings it back to Kathy...
Rachel: You're guaranteed to vote for Kristen to go home?
Britney: Whatever you want. But if you want to guarantee she goes home, I probably shouldn't use it at all.
Rachel: But that'll piss off Hayden... But you could just blame it all on me.
Britney: And he's safe.
The dance continues..
Rachel: I'm scared of Kristen, bottom line. And I don't know what she's gonna do... I also know she doesn't have a problem lying and backstabbing people... I have a problem with that.
Britney: That's the thing, if it's not 100% that you'll put up Kathy, for my game, it's not worth it... Cause if you put up Lane...
Rachel: I know.. they'll get pissed off.
Britney: You know we will shoot outselves in the face if Kathy wins F'in HoH next week. She deserves to be here least of all... and she sure doesn't deserve to be in the jury house... But, if Kristen wins it...
***Swing your partner, Dosey Do...
Britney: I think you're right. It's definitely playing with fire. She's making deals with all of us, and the people she's not making deals with are people we want here...
Rachel: If you're in final 2, Britney, and I'm in the Jury and Kathy's in there, I will make sure she votes for you.... If you won HoH next week, all you'd have to do is put up Kathy...
Britney: It would be a no brainer. That would suck though. I wouldn't wanna put up anyone next to her. I'd have to use someone as a pawn, and I'd have to tell them...
Rachel: But at least it's a no brainer.
Britney: So you think I should not use it?
Rachel: It's just so risky..
Britney: I agree. It's risky to keep an alliance in the house when you don't have to.
Rachel: It's also risky with them, because they're willing to make any deal.. so it's all bs.
Britney: Ok.. I'm gonna go talk to Hayden.
Rachel: I don't want you to feel like I'm forcing your hand.
Britney: I don't. Not at all...
They hug it out and recommit..
Britney: It's just too risky.
BB: Britney, please come to the Diary Room.
Britney: It better not be now.
Brendon: They usually do it around noon or 11..
Kathy & Kristen
Kristen's feeling like the PoV is not going to be used. Kathy assures her it will, because Rachel and Brendon make stupid moves, and if they want to get rid of you, this is a stupid move.
Rachel & Brendon
Rachel tells Brendon the conversation between her and Britney...
Kathy & Kristen
Kathy's nonsensical, and Kristen keeps responding, "I know."
Kathy: I'm not beggin' or pleadin... They're stupid.. You're gonna have to lie to em..
Kristen: Britney just kept emphasizing that Rachel's just not sure she can trust me...
Back to HoH
Brendon and Rachel are shaking protein shakes and talking about how easy it'll be to buy off just about anyone in the house with her 5,000 dollars...
Brendon & Rachel
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go outside and close the sliding glass doors.
Rachel: Ooh. It is now. Nothing in this house is a coincidence. They called her in there right when we finished talking. She never got a chance to tell Hayden she's not using it.
Brendon: Are you positive she wont?
Rachel: Positive. She doesn't want to take the chance I'll put up Lane or Enzo, instead of Kathy.
They head outside and join the rest of the HGs on the couch..
The HGs are spread out across the yard, awaiting their fate. The Pre PoV Ceremony chatter is high-brow: Garlic Farts.
