Big Brother 12: The Overnight Report
Good morning, BB Lovers! Happy Live Show Day!
Tonight, with a new Head of Household, the game starts all over again!
But we're not quite there yet, so let's get on with the Overnight Report and check out what went down on the live feeds in the Big Brother 12 house last night.
Endurance Fills the Air...
From the HoH bathtub with Rachel & Britney, to the downstairs bathroom with Matt & Lane, and all parts in between, the HGs are now quite certain it'll be endurance tonight.
The only question is: what kind of endurance?
Who will it favor, who will fight to the death, who will drop, who will win... and what will they do?
Let's have a quick listen in on Matt & Lane's convo...
Matt: ..if it's true.
Lane: Don't get me wrong. I'ma stay up there.
Matt: I hope so, man. 'Cause if he takes it, we're f*cked. I think two of us are going up.
Lane: He won't take it. He's also too tall and crap for that kind of
Talk turns to the types of endurance...
Lane: One was banging against a wall.. one was banging against a diploma.. but it wont be a diploma, cuz that was the high school theme..
Lane: But if it's something where.. elimination bullsh*t... we should beat him there too...
Matt: I don't think he's that smart.
Lane: I just want it to be something where we can actually compete for it. But he hasn't actually won an HoH, so..
Matt: That's what you got on your side. I gave up that last one.
Lane: I think, in the Brigade, we have all the aspects taken care of for HoH competitions... We have the brains, the beef.. But we also have the hangin on a surfboard or on a rope, cuz you're not 6'8" 300 pounds..
Matt: I think that underwear endurance was more strength, cuz you're actually hanging..
Lane: Yeah, but you have less weight.
Matt: And less strength for that weight though. We have to have this. We have to. It's a one in 7 chance. 1 in 8.
Britney & Rachel
Britney: I was like 100% sold it wasn't endurance, until now.
Rachel: I know...
Britney: And now I'm like, is it actually gonna be endurance?
Rachel: It is. Because they could've had something huge planned, because this is the week the saboteur was supposed to be going out... This could be a big sabotage themed endurance.
*** Actually, that's not a bad theory... Since we know something they don't know... That if this week's HoH chooses to open Pandora's Box, the saboteur will once again be unleashed on the house... Saboteur 2.0, that is.
Britney: Saboteur themed.. So...
Rachel: But that's good... because we have Brendon on our side. You could easily win endurance, Britney. I know you don't think you can. I believe that you can.
Britney: The only thing that I can't handle, I feel like, endurance-wise, is cold.
Rachel: I know.
Britney: Like, if I can keep moving somehow, I feel like I have a lot better shot.
Rachel: Well, think if it's like a holding on to something...
Britney: I know. I just hope they don't squirt us with water.. Cuz that was killing me last time. I'm just really bad with cold stuff, but.. Matt says he's really bad with cold stuff too. We've talked about it, and he has circulation problems.. Like, his hands and feet are always cold, like mine. And he's like, I'm really bad at the cold...
Rachel: But the problem with Matt is, he is not someone who gives up. I do not see him as someone who gives up.
Britney: I don't either.
Rachel: I don't know... Where do you feel like Lane's at?
***Come on, Rach, that's like asking to be lied to, even more than already...
Britney: I feel like Lane keeps everything inside. Like everything. Kristen told me she had Lane's vote.
Rachel: Shut up.
Britney: Yeah. She basically did. She's like, I have 3 votes. I know I have Kathy, Ragan and Lane..
Britney: And I was like, what?? Sooo.. last night, when I was about to go to bed, I jumped in Lane's bed, and I was like, Hey, who are you voting for? And he said Hayden. And I said, well, Kristen told me that you were voting for her. And he goes, yeah, I told her I am, because I'm tired of her talking to me. He goes, I was trying to keep the conversation short, and she kept going on and on, so finally I just said...
Brendon enters the HoH, asks if they're decent.. has a seat...
Rachel: Brendon, you have to make sure that you beat them.
Brendon: Oh I know. I know.
Britney: We decided that we think it might be...
Brendon: I think so... 1st of all, Matt has only worked out a month in his life. If it's endurance and physical, I'm gonna beat em, hands down.
Rachel: But Brendon. He's a fighter.
Brendon shakes his head in denial and disgust at the notion.
Brendon: Last competition.. the reason he won is because he's small. It was designed for someone who's low center of gravity, small feet...
Rachel: But listen, Britney said he's been walking around saying that he's gonna win...
Britney: Which is exactly what he did before the last one. He was like, I'm gonna win this one, bla bla bla...
Brendon: Has he mentioned that he would put us up again?
Britney: I haven't talked to him about who he would put up, or game, or anything like that... I don't think I've ever really talked to Matt about game.
Brendon: Oh, I'm gonna get in his head tomorrow, for sure.
Brendon goes on to list the reasons he will beat every other guy in the house... Later on in the evening, Britney shares this information with each of the guys, to fire them up just that little bit more.
And so it goes. This conversation up in the HoH bathtub goes on for another hour and touches on the 3 guy alliance, Ragan's loyalty to Matt, back into what kind of endurance comp it might be and on and on. If you'd like to check it out on the flashback section of the live feeds, it's there for the viewing, starting at 9:14pm on Cam 1.
We'll move forward into the evening now...
Britney, Ragan & Matt
Fresh from the bubble bath, face mask session up in HoH, Britney fills Matt & Ragan in on everything that was said about them and the other HGs... She leads in by saying how creepy it was for Brendon to be sitting there staring at the two of them in the bathtub...
Britney: They were trying to game talk me to death. I kept trying to change the subject.
Matt: About what? It's over.
Britney: Next week and HoH and what do I think HoH is gonna be and who's gonna fight hard... Do you think Matt'll fight hard?
Matt: Everyone's gonna f'ing fight hard.
Britney: Do you think Lane really wants it? What would Ragan do? I'm like, I don't know! They are crapping their pants about winning HoH...
Ragan and Matt laugh.
Britney: I mean, straight crapping pants. Brendon's like, "Matt can't beat me. He's weak. He's not even strong."
Ragan: (gasps) He said that?!
Britney: Yeah..He's all, "I run Marathons. If it has to do with longevity, I can beat Matt, I can beat Hayden, I can beat Ragan... If it has to do with strength, I'm gonna win." And I go, what about Lane? "No, Lane's too big!"
Matt and Ragan both laugh...
Ragan: (mocks Rachel's comp support) Yes! Yes! Oh baby, come on, you can do it.
Britney: I mean, they are so scared you (Matt) might win. They were like, "we asked Matt if he wanted to make a deal, and he said no."
Matt: (giggles) I did.
Britney: They were like, "we know what that means... Matt's coming after us... "
Ragan: You called it.
Matt: Well, then, we obviously know who's going on the block if Brendon wins.
Britney: They're like, crapping. Yeah, but, this whole house is gonna play against them.
Matt: I'm not playin' into their bullsh*t. I mean, I could've very easily been like, Yeah, I'll make a deal, but f*ck them. I'm sick of this sh*t.
Britney: Yeah. I know.
***How dare they try so hard and win comps, when they know their lives are on the line. The nerve of them not rolling over so we can get them out. ::eyeroll::
Matt: I wanted to, too. I wanted to, but I'm just like, I don't have the f'in...
Britney: Enzo does. (laughs)
Matt: I know he does. he's a weak motherf*cker.
Britney: Enzo'll tell you about it.
Matt: He will, and I laughed about it. I'm like, you're such a puss. He's all, "whatever, I don't care." I can't sink to that level.
Britney: See.. but they wont ask me (***they think they have an alliance with you), they wont ask Ragan. They just assume.
Matt: Assume what?
Britney: They're like, if Ragan gets it, he wont put them up.
Matt: They probably do.. Well, that's good for you two, 'cause that means that you two are probably...
Britney: Right.. and then if Ragan does puttem up, he didn't lie. They didn't ask.
Matt: I didn't lie either. I didn't accept the deal.
Britney: That's the funny thing. I think that they're like, freaking out that you could win it.
Matt: Good. They should freak out.
Ragan: I've noticed... At least Brendon acting differently today.
Matt: To you?
Ragan: Just over all..
Britney: I think he's like soooo nervous. And they've offered an alliance to like every person in the house!
Matt: Yeah.. no kidding.
Britney: They always try to pry me for information... uh.. what do you think Enzo's gonna do? I'm like, I don't know what Enzo's gonna do..
Matt: You'd puttem both up?
Matt: Brendon and Rachel.
Britney: Would I? Yeah!
Britney: Everybody in this house would.
Matt: Well you two gotta feel good for next week, at least.
Ragan: (Deep sigh) Well, if there intention is.. Well, who knows..
Matt: Oh, you're saying if their intention is to get me out, you think you might go up?
***It's official, Matt and Ragan have entered into old married couple phase, finishing each others thoughts.
Ragan: I don't think they would, though...
Matt: I don't think they would either. I think they'd put me up against Lane.
Britney: They weren't telling me their strategy. They were trying to use me for...
Britney: ..And that's why I'm so careful with them.. to never say anybody's name...
Britney: ...because if you say a name, it's like... (she gestures and makes the sound of a speeding racecar)
Britney: And I'm with you. I'm tired of the power trips. It's not personal. It is personal with Brendon, because... (she makes a face to show her annoyance with Brendon's existence on the planet)
Britney: It's not like.. I mean, they so far have ran this house.
Matt: Right. I know. That's why I ain't dealin' with this sh*t anymore. Plain and simple.
Britney: But they were like, we asked Matt if he wanted to make another deal, and he said no.
Matt: Alrighty then.
Britney: I was like, well that's straightforward.
Matt: Told ya. I ain't f'in around. I'l llook death in the eyes. They're goin' down next week. It's ova.. It's ova, Johnny...
Britney: Well, then they start saying, "If Matt wins, and he puts us up, one of us is gonna won PoV, and then what's he gonna do? Who's he gonna put up?"
Ragan: It doesn't...
Matt: Who cares?
Britney: Like, in other words, who are we gonna have to... They think that they can both stay in this game. Cuz one of em will win PoV, someone else will go up, and they're gonna work to make sure that person goes home.
Matt: It's f'ing possible. In fact, I know one of them will win PoV. They just will. It's the world we live in, but I don't care. It's not gonna change anything.
This conversation is ongoing and definitely worth checking out on flashback, if you've got time. But Britney's work with this pair is basically done, and she's got more boys to rile up for the HoH comp. Why fight for yourself in a comp when you can manipulate others to do it for you with information sharing?
Britney, Matt & Ragan
Lane is present, but quiet.
Ragan: I think Hayden is gonna fight, fight, fight after what happened...
Britney: I do too. I think that there's a good chance that Hayden could win it.
Matt: Yeah, 'cause if you guys can't coerce (Brendon to nominate) Kathy, it's gonna be me and Hayden or me and Lane (on the block) for sure.
Britney: uh huh.
Matt: I mean, undoubtedly. So... I think me and Lane and Hayden probably will (fight to the death in the comp), but I hope the rest of the people would too.
Britney: I think there's a good chance Hayden could win it.
Matt: Oh yeah.
Ragan: He's got...
Britney: (Rehashing what Brendon said about Lane, for the benefit of the now present Lane) Lane can't ever win though, 'cause he's too big...
Ragan: I think that...
Britney: Lane's like 30 pounds bigger than Brendon.
Britney: (Shoots a big smile in his direction, then hears a noise..) Sounds like Enzo.
Lane: Yeah, he's fired up.
Enzo makes Britney's job easier by joining them in Jumanji... She doesn't even have to change rooms to fire up someone new as she retells the tale, this time including more of what they said in regards to Enzo...
Britney: Brendon told me that he's cool with him though... He goes, "I think we're cool with Enzo. Do you know what Enzo's thinking?" I go, no, Enzo doesn't talk to me about game, and he goes, "I think we're cool with Enzo. I told him, Man I really respect you for..." What does he respect you for?
Enzo: I dunno.. Umm.. Uhh.. Competin'.
Britney: Yeah.. it was like one of the competitions.. Anyways, he's like, "I told him I really respect him for that, and I think we're really cool with Enzo," and I'm like...
Lane: What was his flaw that Brendon called out?
Britney: Enzo doesn't want it.
Enzo: I don't want it.
Lane: You're weak.
Enzo: Could be right. I think I need to get woken up a little bit. Know what I mean? Like I need to be smacked up a little bit. Could be. ya never know. Cuz I haven't won...
Britney: Matty'll smack you up.
Enzo: ...Cuz I haven't won F'in HoH yet. So what the f*ck? Ya know what I mean?
Britney: (low) Lane's way too big.
Enzo: Well, the questions, I don't give a f*ck about. It's the physicality ones that.. ya know? I wanna do better. But, it's a long season. Just 'cause you're not winning now, don't mean sh*t.
Britney: Yeah, but Enzo, tomorrow's so important.
***subtext: I'm not here to waste my breath. I'm trying to fire you all up to win. Now take the bait, thank you very much.
Britney: Like, everybody needs to be fighting really hard. Everyone.
Matt: Yeah.. ain't gonna be a long season, if you go home next week, ya know?
Matt: Then it's not a long season anymore.
Britney: Like, everybody needs to be fighting really hard.
Enzo diverts to slop, saying how weak it made him for the last big physical comp... The entire room jumps to get him back on track, especially Britney.
Britney: We're talking about tomorrow!
Ragan: That's another thing that makes me think it is gonna be endurance... The fact that we got a week off of being Have Not. It levels the playing field. I really, really think this is endurance.
***Me too. And for those of you who've been holding off on getting the live feeds, I really, really hope you'll take advantage of the 3 day free trial right this minute, and get them set up and functional on your computer before tonight.
Endurance Comps are my favorite thing on the live feeds. The drama, the competition... it's intense! You really don't want to miss it, and there's absolutely no reason to.
The Brigade's in the Kitchen, Fired up to win the HoH Comp.
Ragan & Britney are having a moment in Jumanji... Since Britney's been driving the entire evening, we'll join her.
Ragan: Here's the thing.. Drama, drama, drama, every single night.
Britney: Drama. It's gonna be bad. It's gonna be really bad.
Ragan: I almost feel tremendously sorry for whoever wins Power of Veto, because I think it's gonna be like...
Britney: Fact of the matter is, it would be worse for you or I to get HoH, but I'm fighting for it. Like, I don't care if it's worse. I don't care. I just want it to happen. In the event, like I said, if Brendon goes down, I have no problem...
Britney: Like, Matt or Lane or Enzo or Hayden...
Britney: ...have it? No problem. But, as long as Brendon's up there, I'm up there.
Ragan: Me too.
***It's gonna be a great comp!!! Brendon's sure as hell not gonna give up easily, and the rest are saying they're committed to fighting as long as he does.
Britney: Period. Period. Because, I'm tired of it, Ragan. I'm tired of... Like, I'm just ready for them to be gone. Don't you feel so.. in the middle?
Britney: Me too. I'm tired of getting asked what everybody else is doing. And I'm so meticulous with my words...
Ragan: mm hmm
Britney: ...because I know that if I win HoH, anything that I've said to them? Floodgates. So I choose my words so carefully.
Ragan: Me too.
Britney: But I'm so tired of it. I'm tired of being badgered about alliances. Like, if they try to get me to join an alliance with them one more time, I'll shoot myself. I'm tired of being used as a spy for this house.
***But... How's that safety thing, when they win HoH, workin' out for ya, Brit?
Enzo & Lane
Fired up! Ready to go!
Enzo: You think it's smart to chop them up now, right?
Enzo: You think it's smart to chop up Brendon and Rachel, right? Do you think it's smart?
Lane: To gettem out?
Enzo: To gettem out now.
Enzo: I just want the Brigade to always be in the backfield. With those two here, everyone's always gunnin' for them.
Lane: Oh yeah.. but.. If I win, I'm puttin' em both up.
Enzo: Oh, me too.. Of course. The whole house wants it. But I'm sayin', do you think it's a good idea that we do that? I'm just thinkin' like... Just so we're f'in safe. We split them up, we're golden... But if we don't and somehow Ragan wins HoH and he puts 2 of us up...
Lane: I'll bust his face in.
Enzo walks to Matt in the bathroom.
Enzo: I was just talkin' to Lane. It's definitely the smartest thing to chop them up now?
Enzo: If we win, right? I just always wanna make sure that we're covered, right? Ya know? I'm just thinkin' about us.. We have to always be in the backfield... and let targets lay out there for other people to go after...
Matt: Yeah, but, when they win, we are the targets.
Enzo: I don't think this week though.
Matt: You heard what Britney said.
Enzo: He may put up you and Kathy...
Matt: He'll put up me and Lane. I know it. For a fact.
***Subtext: Enzo, chill. I'm the brains of this operation. I'll thank you to remember that and stop using yours... although you are quite right.
The rest of the night is reactionary to Britney's information sharing. The boys are pumped and ready to win the endurance comp, and they often refer back to whatever Britney told them Brendon said about each individual one.
In a private conversation, Matt & Ragan both offer to throw HoH to each other... They'll cross that bridge when they come to it, but if it comes down to the 2 of them, I'd bet Ragan takes a very quick dive to avoid the proverbial blood on his hands and the loss of Brendon and Rachel's jury votes.
This concludes the Overnight Report! Happy Live Show day!! Tonight, the game starts all over again! Are you ready for Endurance?? We are!! :0)
