Big Brother 12: The Overnight Report

Good Morning, BB Lovers! Happy Sunday!

Looking at the eBayDailyDeals this morning, I found the perfect gift for the BB12 HGs: a Magnetic Dart Board. They can have a fun new toy... and not kill each other. ;)

While I get to crackin' on the Overnight, here's a funny flashback find to start your day. Suffice it to say, Brendon, Lane and Enzo are no longer masters of their domain. Hayden may be the only guy left in the house who hasn't created his own personal jackshack...
Hayden to Enzo: What time was this? 'Cause I was layin' next to you!

Clicking the pic will get you to the log-in page if you've got the feeds, or to the 3 Day Free Trial, if you need it. Lane, I'll never be able to watch you shower and not wonder again... This conversation goes on for several minutes, transitions briefly into their favorite porn sites, then back to masturbation, relative to porn... Enzo's hysterical.

OK... time to make the donuts. Please refresh this post periodically to see the Overnight go up section by section. My goal this morning is to have it completed by 7am BBT.

12:51am BBT
Brendon & Rachel
Cams 1/2

While both chomping on M&Ms and whispering, thereby making it very difficult to her clearly, Rachel's advising Brendon on who he needs to align with and trust once she's gone... It's a delusional fantasy at this point, but it's all they've got, so we'll touch on it...

Rachel: If you guys can break up Ragan and Matt, they're still going to have Lane, Ragan, Britney and Kathy. I know you think it's a joke, but it's a vote. If you can convince Hayden that you're good, I think he'll be on your side. Then Kathy will be on your side too, because Kathy likes Hayden.
Brendon: Are you sure?
Rachel: Totally. She's with him, like 100%. She says she plays "with integrity".. whatever.. Even though she's like that, she genuinely really did like Kristen.
Brendon: Hayden's all, "I don't have anybody. I have Kathy."

Brendon makes a face to show his disbelief...

Rachel: (all business) It's a vote, though.
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go inside and close the sliding glass door.
Rachel: Oooh... You think it's cuz of the concert?
Brendon: Yeah, probably.
Rachel: Saboteur... Help us out. Brendon and I don't wanna go home. Oh, Saboteur, you know it'll be so much more interesting with Brendon and I here.

Rachel and Brendon continue talking until right around 1:30am. They discuss possible alliances for Brendon to make, then some Jedi training, and a massage. Rachel tells Brendon she wants him to at least make it to final 2... It's lights out come 1:30... Cue heavy make out session... If that's your thing, you can catch them going for it in the flashback section of the live feeds, on Cam 1, starting at 1:35am and continuing on for quite a while...

2:13am BBT
Cam 1/2
Enzo, Hayden, Matt, Lane

As the Brigade's plan for house domination becomes more of a sure thing in the house, they become more daring in their chosen meeting places. This conversation takes place around the dining table...

Enzo to Hayden: Rachel's gonna quiz us every night. She's givin' us her powers.
Matt: Is that how she phrased it?

While Matt's snide about it, Enzo is impressed with Rachel's game knowledge... even in the way she poses a question.

Enzo: They literally practice every night. Every night. And they wanna give us their powers. I think it's good.. Refresh it in our f'in heads.
Matt: You guys are gonna turn into them.
Enzo to Matt: It's good stuff. They definitely hate you. They definitely hate you, yo.
Matt: Good.
Enzo: They think that you, Ragan and Britney are a strong alliance. He goes, you guys are goin' down to the end.
Matt: Me, Brit and Ragan?
Enzo: You, Brit and Ragan.
Matt: Well, that's good, because that means that any time I get put up, it'll be with one of them.
Enzo: That's what I'm sayin'. So do you wanna win HoH this week? Comin' up?
Matt: So are they off of Britney and Lane being together? They don't think that anymore?

Enzo: No, they think, they're tryin' to tell me to sway you away from Britney, 'cause Britney's not to be trusted.
Lane: To sway me away from Britney?
Enzo: 'Cause Britney's not to be trusted.
Matt: So they told you to tell him?
Enzo: Kind of..
Matt: They don't wanna bring him in?
Enzo: Kind of... She's giving me a big pep talk, like "Enzo, you have fans... You have a wife and a kid. You have to make the final four. This is it." I was like, oh, ok, yeah.
Matt: (giggles) Yeah.
Enzo: I'm like yeah, I'm gonna.. Bruh-gade... (to Hayden) So, do we win HoH this week? And if I win HoH, do I put up Brendon right away? With like Kathy or somebody? Like whadda we do? (to Matt) If we won HoH, do we put up Brendon right away? 'Cause he thinks we're in an alliance. Or do we wait til like...
Matt: Here's the thing.. (thinks) I mean.. I don't know if you put him up putright, but... like.. that's it.. Once he's gone, there's no one else that thinks you're in an alliance with him (Hayden) and Brendon, ya know what I mean? So it's like, you're not hurting anyone.
Enzo: (to Lane) We could go after Britney, and then you come in the alliance with us.
Lane: Like, put up either...


Enzo: Like if I put up Ragan, I would want him out. Like, just f'in go home. You know what I mean?
Matt: That's why put him against me.
Enzo: Well, if Brendon wins (HoH this coming Thursday), that's where he's going.
Matt: Oh, ok.

***It's nice to control the numbers in the house, no? Love em or hate em, the entire plan of the Brigade with all the side alliances out in the open, is working, and it's brilliant. How else but by throwing comps and laying low would 3 automatic perceived physical threats like Hayden, Enzo and Lane have been able to make it so far?

Matt touches on the notion that Brendon winning the next HoH isn't the end of the world at all, because then he can't play in the next HoH, and all 4 of them can, and they'll just get him then.

Enzo: If me or Hayden win, I don't think we should put Brendon up right away. Do we right away put up Britney and Ragan? No right? And if one of them falls, we have the option to put Brendon up. I'm tellin you, Kathy, we have to save. I mean, best case scenario, Brendon wins the HoH, he puts up you (Matt) and Ragan. Ragan goes home. You know what I mean?
Matt: And 3 votes wins without a tie.
***As in, the other 3 Brigade members.
Enzo: That's what I'm sayin. If Britney wins, she puts up Brendon. Who else? Kathy?
Lane: Yup.
Matt: If Ragan wins PoV, if it's me and Ragan, he (Brendon) puts up Kathy... or Britney... but he wouldn't put up Lane.

Enzo doesn't follow.

Matt: If Brendon wins HoH, and it's me and Ragan on the block, and Ragan wins PoV, who does Brendon replace with? Not Lane.
Hayden: Britney or Kathy.
Enzo: Britney. It'll be Britney.
Matt: Either way, it doesn't matter. 3 votes wins. Unless one of you guys is the saboteur...
Enzo: There's no saboteur here, yo. If I find out one of you is the saboteur after this, I will hunt you down. I will f'in kill you.

Lane laughs...

Enzo: I will literally bomb your house with eggs.
Matt: Same here, dude. F' it.
Enzo: Every weekend, until you move.

They chatter on about the saboteur for a couple minutes and how they'll know right away if it is someone in the Brigade, because the votes will be messed up.

This dining table conversation wraps up after another few minutes, and that about does it for the Overnight Report. Matt and Enzo do continue talking, until around 3:30am, but it's more rehashing of the above: how the Brigade controls the house, the vote, the game... and how it would be a shame if they didn't all make it into the final 4.

At 3:23am BBT, Matt and Enzo are staring at the memory wall, talking about how they study it, in preparation for the morph comp, and Matt offers the following...

Matt: Ragan was saying how he was all emotional, and when Kristen went to black and white, he couldn't look... just had to walk away.. I'm thinking to myself, I want everyone to turn black and white.

That's the name of the game, and that's all she wrote...

Morning Carolyn.

Great TOR. Was watching last night while the guys were talking about relieving their tensions, Hayden's reaction was priceless.

I've been thinking over the last two days a lot of poster are complaining about the HG's bashing of each other.

I think we need to step back and realize that they have no diversions and the only thing they can focus on is the nit picky little things that each other do and than talk about it for hours.

When that starts to happen it takes on a life of it's own. We need to stop disliking them, they can't help it, it happens every year and most people in this situation succumb.

Us posters who have diversions need to take a step back and remember their environment.

Just my humble opinion... was on my mind thanks for letting get on my soapbox.

Have a great day.

Carolyn: I still don't find the brigade impressive... I guess relative to the people in this season they are the best of the worst... everyone is so oblivious in this house and so full of themselves (literally, every single one.... even my lovely Brenchel...) that they don't want to believe that anyone would go against them and thus don't suspect big alliances... put the Brigade in other seasons and they woulda been found out and evicted long ago.. at least in my opinion.

August 8, 2010 at 7:07 AM  
Blogger Stephen Ritchie said...

Carolyn: I will admit one thing the Brigade has done well... is making it seem like each of them is aligned with one other person... not only does it hide their alliance but it makes it so if they go up against the other, there are votes to keep them. I'm still not impressed though. LOL Like I said, until you win comps and have a target, you are a floater. Thats like saying when the house comes together in the beginning and 8 people decide to pick off the 4 or 5 outsiders, that is a powerful amazing alliance....

CurlerChick: Its not even the mean stuff that makes me dislike them so much. Other than a few comments, like saying they wished Brendon was dead at the bottom of the pool (I'm sorry, I don't care how annoyed you are with someone... death wishing is just not normal and not okay) and Ragan all of the sudden becoming a clinical psychologist and diagnoising Rachel with Bi Polar)... I can handle the mean comments or I at least understand why they are how they are. What makes me dislike them is how boring they all are together and how inflated all of their egos are.

Like I said we don't have to like what they say or even how they behave.

Just remember no books, no tv no where to hide and nothing to take your mind off the game 24 hours a day. It's distorts what you think is reality and it appears to some degree your ability to think rationally about what people are saying to.

Some of these people might behave in this manner outside the house but maybe not to the degree they are in here, I guess I'm saying everything is magnified.

I'm not excusing anything they've done, just observing and thinking how would I handle this. I know I couldn't.

How else but by throwing comps and laying low would 3 automatic perceived physical threats like Hayden, Enzo and Lane have been able to make it so far?"

This is very accurate paragraph. The brigade is indeed playing the best game, and it is being more and more apparent. For example, having Hayden and Enzo subtly get Bren to trust them, better ensures that no two brigade members will be put up, and therefore, if only one brigade is put up, the brigade controls the vote. As they've stated, it may even better for Bren to get HOH this week. It takes a strong alliance to be able to control the house, even when your enemy is HOH the following week. I do hope that the brigade makes it to final four. It will really be a masterpiece, given when the alliance was originally formed.

Goodmorning Carolyn and now Genie :)

Curlerchick i couldn't agree with you more.

IMO- i don't think many people truly understand what the medical definition of bi-polar is (i'm in the medical field and work closely to people affected by it) and i think some people just assume it's up/down mood swings when it's really so much more than that. i think people who don't fully realize it just throw that term out there when they see someone who wears their emotions on their sleeve.

I'm not a Rachel fan but i think she has experienced the highs/lows in the house and although she knows the game well she's just not able to control her emotions during these times therefore they are using that term when they probably aren't able to step back and look at what her 'ride' in the house has been like.

just my 2 cents :) hope everyone has a great day!

I guess today will just be the same as yesterday with all the bashing. Last night I turned off BBAD when Britney said that it was time for Rachel and Brendon to just leave, just walk out the door because she doesnt want them there in the house anymore...Maybe if Britney would stop fixating on B&R she could see what is really going on in the house. Her name keeps getting thrown out there to be put on the block, and they want to keep Kathy. Maybe she should start working with B&R instead of against them. Use the POV take down Rachel and they will put up Kathy. Britney better start watching what is going on here.

Good Morning Carolyn and Dishers!

After leaving early evening last night I never returned and enjoy the O.R. by you.

You know what? Unless there is something that keeps Rachel in the house after Thursday... I am outright going to pull for the Bragade. They have played a good game by not really playing. However, if their constant trashing and hateful bashing of the Underdog left continue I give up on the season. It was a hate fest from the start on Andrew, Rachel and Brendan and I will no longer participate if they continue the mob mentality.

I now know why this season is becoming one of my least favorites... it's the Nerd Heard mob mentality all over again. Other seasons there has been attacks and so on... however when it comes from the Underdog be it Janelle, Evel or Rachel I can deal with it. It's part of the game. It's the house ganging up on one or two people that I never endorse. As in real life, I hate it and speak out.

I started this season also liking Ragan... but he has become a shadow of his former self and so delusional with his nose up Matt's ass and I find him anything but fun and kind, end it's getting worse with the Blonde twosome of hateful integrity.

Oh well... c'est la vie. Wishing you a great Sunday and a Happy Sunday show with more clarification. <3 <3

I do so agree with you about US the posters being more understanding... but I have no hope because there is so much hate here too for the HGs reacting from being in a pressure cooker. I always try to take the compassionate side.

This Blog is the most fair blog and the one I do return to if I want to check in... but it gets trashy here too on occasion.

I don't get the prudish way some are attacking people for acting out in loving ways to somebody they clearly have fallen for... be it real or not. I'd like to see how somebody who do nothing but complain about the affection, like Britney would react if her Nick was in the house.

I'd rather see people making love than making hate.

I don't think we should give up on the possibility of both Brendon and Rachel staying in the house.

Danielle and Dick were on the block and America's Player helped them, right? Weren't they both on the block at that time, when America's player came into play?

I think the saboteur has a different strategy behind its role, but it would still be nice to see something happen.

Hi Genie...

How are u today..I hope you got some rest..maybe today will be nicer..I hope so.

Although if I were Rachel and I knew I was going home because everybody didn't care for me...
I would go out with a bang..she does have a jury vote and so does Brendon..

The only way Brendon can stay is if he wins HOH next week and I doubt that will happe..

so have some fun and stir the pot..

If Rachel is nice they will say she is kissing butt..if she is mean than she is bipolar(my daughter is bipolar so don't appreciate those comments), she has many health problems) so no matter what she does, she is a biotch..so have fun Rachel..

I also hope for that someday. I work with a rescue group in L.A. for kittens/cats and for dogs also.
I also have many ferral cats as I live on a dead end street that goes into L.A. river and everybody just dumps their animals here. I trap them, get them fixed and try to find homes if not to ferral..if so they live here and I take care of them..
It is just awful the way some people care for animals..

Last thoughts on the subject since there are such hard core emotions on this here.

Everyone plays this BB game differently and as fans we all see it differently, we should all give respect as those in the house have lost their perspective to do so. Just because the Brigade has played a different game does not make them less of a player, nor does B/R playing as a team, it just makes their game different.

Turns out that the Brigade has done better in hiding this season and gone farther. IMO Not saying I am on their side, just I can respect their game from a game perspective.

What I cannot respect is the personal attacks that have gone on from ALL sides. Some have been strategic and not so hurtful, but some have just been horrid. I personally take tremendous offense to people being called 'bipolar' if they are perceived crazy.

This is very personal to me and very offensive. People with bipolar are NOT CRAZY!! That is all I am going to say and am pretty much done with all of this now.

I have to agree that the Brigade is playing an excellent game -- I don't like that they are, but dang it, they ARE!

I hope Ragan comes to his senses and gets back on the high road...I do NOT like this mean, catty side of him at all!

Got my "new" car yesterday!

Gaytor, I am also one to be taken in by salesmen, but I think I did okay yesterday...well, will wait to see what the hub (soon to be ex, but it's amicable) says when he sees it and goes to sign the paperwork.

It's a used 2008 Chevy HHR in beautiful condition with low mileage. There is a little issue with the ignition key, that hubs is gonna have to insist they fix before he signs the papers, but other than that I think I done good...I think....hehehehe...no buyers' remorse yet....

Sadly, I need to do a bit of armchair psychology on Ragan, which whom I am profoundly disappointed.

Ragan has be coasting by (interpersonally) with his sound pep talk/lectures. Presenting himself as the voice a reason. But, he had never been confronted. No one has ever brought him into a dispute - he just mediated the disputes of others.

To put it simply, he does not practice what he preaches. A tiny conflict with Rachel where she stood her ground (and not particularly strongly) and he lost his mind and became more reactionary than anyone in the house.

He does not like to be challenged, at all! When he is, and can't manipulate his way out with what he perceives as rational discourse (self serving of course), he crumbles and turns to the worst petty kind of attacks - shutting a person out and cruelty. It's school yard bulling at it's worst because it is the antithesis of rational. It's self protective meanness.

I'm not saying Rachel isn't wacko (not a clinical term), but what she did to him was minor, at worst. And he responded by discounting her as a human altogether. Something perhaps he learned from the people who made his life hell when he was young?

I never thought Ragan was perfect (no one is), but I thought he was decent. And he is, until he's not in control. That makes me sad.

For the record, I don't think there are any major personality disorders this season (they usually cast one or two), but we do have quite a bit of emotional dysfunction. And it turns out Ragan is leading that brigade.

Oh, btw, his new "truth" that Rachel is behind every argument in the house is pure fantasy. He seems to be conveniently forgetting half the arguments.

happy Sunday! Steohen ,I ahve to disagree that "until you win comps and HOH you are a floater"
I think the brigade is playing a great game. yes, winning comps, POV, etc, makes you a good player, but that's just a part of it. A lot of this game is psychological,too. It's what you say, what you dont say, who you share info with, etc. So even though the brigade isnt the strongest alliance in comps, they still have kept it a secret from everyone. Nobody suspects they are all 4 alligned together.and 2 of them (Hayden and Matt) have won 3 out of 5 HOHs. I believe Enzo is throwing a lot of comps. Once they are down to the wire, he is going to have to fight to stay, Same with Lane. He is laying low. Also very smart to break away and get info from Brendon like Enzo does. Brendon clearly is not using his brains . I honestly can't believe sometimes that he is a physicist. Same with Rachel-a chemist that lives the life of a Vegas party girl? she never mentions anything about chemisty-just Vegas, how much moey she makes, how she met celebrities,does all thes promotional things, she is sought after on myspace for appearances,blah,blah,blah...
Genie: sorry for the long post!

High Horse - Enzo has made quite a few directly homophobic comments.

Therese - Sorry :( Trying to keep things real. Their BB goose is cooked, unfortunately and I mean, unfortunately :)

Morning Bree! :) Hugs! :)

Pamela - Thank you sweetie :) I have made up my mind, in order to survive the rest of this week, I am only transcribing game related conversations. :)If people want to read about bashing and to bash, there are plenty of sites that cater to that clientèle :)

Morning Red! :) Huggies :)

Morning MsFitz!! :) ♥♥♥

Morning Debi! :) Congrats on the "new" car!

Morning JANE! Excellent analysis and I concur on all points. My disappointment in Ragan is the greatest thus far...

Good morning Genie! ((HUGS))
RedRhonda and Ms.Ftiz (((BIG HUGS))

HighHorse I would like to form a sub alliance with you. I agree that the comments and innuendos made by those two about Regan were disgusting.

The Brigade is playing the game by not playing the game and I think it is great!

Morning Lisa! :) No doubt the brigade are playing the smartest game in the house... And when Rachel and Brendon are dismantled, they will mow right through the remaining ones...

Good Morning All! I am truly not liking this new Ragan at all and wish him out before he wins #20,000...is that really bad of me? I am also hoping that whoever gets evicted this week Rachael or Brendon, gets to turn around and go right back into the house....really long shot, but I think the house is going to be really boring without her...nobody else wants to win comps, and the whole house would be sooooo upset about it :)

My disappointment in Ragan is the biggest of any BB player, ever. I never thought he would win the game, but I thought he would go far, actually playing, and not causing any serious damage.

Because I think he is a genuinely thoughtful person, when the brigade hits him, and he finds out about Matt, he will be crushed. And I think reevaluate himself quite a bit. In the end I think he will learn from the experience, and I do have more hope for him in that regard than anyone else. But in the meantime, he has fallen to a terrible low, that I just didn't want to see.

Jane: You are 100% correct... Ragan is the voice of reason and nice as long as you are on his side..... challenge him on one little thing, even something completely insignificant... and he flips. Just like when Rachel just wanted to talk to him last night and he said "no, not until I am ready." Ughhh... he makes me sick.

No question, the brigade is playing a stellar game. Matt, though often unseemly, is playing a stellar game in his own right. Without Matt to do the heavy lifting I think the brigade wouldn't exist.

Lisa M: If you read my follow up post, I admitted that their use of side alliances was smart and I gave them credit for that.... I also gave credit to Matt because I do think he is playing the game.

I still disagree as to the others of the brigade.... how can you say "its a different way of playing the game" when they aren't playing the game at all? Not even TRYING in comps, hoping for vetoes that have luxuries so they can get something out of throwing it, etc.... that isn't playing and I don't have respect for it.

I see how people say floating is a good game strategy... but unless you are sitting at the end with another floater, floating is playing for 2nd place and to me playing for 2nd place isn't playing at all

Tage: why do you feel Rachel is the underdog? She has won 2 HOH and Brendon has won 2 POV's, saving himself from eviction twice. Rachel pretty much felt that she was #1 and it's only now that she knows she is most likely going home that she is feeling sorry for herself. Only one person will win the half mil. Apparently, it's not going to be her this year.

there is no way the sabatour could save R or B. If his game is anything Like annies, all the sabatour does is pull pranks. Annies tacticts were not focused on any one player.

I doubt they would let reagan focus sabatouge on any one player.

Annie was just a prankster. Playing pranks on the house. Sabatour is really not the correct title, unless they let reagan play it differant.

Good morning My Precious. Did you know we slept together last night? I may have grabbed the ice pack but you are a covers hog. I wonder how many men know that. HA!.. I'm sure one does but that's not relevant to BBDish so I'll stay mum on that. :-p~

As if I ever stay relevant or on topic. I don't plan to change that today. No one would believe it's me if I tried.

Actually, after watching a few minutes of the feeds when I got home at Midnight BBT, I'm not sure I can comment on the game at all after hearing about 10 minutes of the usual, but getting worse, R&B bashing from everyone still in the house. It's lather, rinse, repeat and there is only so many times I can repeat.'

OOPS, there goes Wakey Wakey. I'll be back for the Morning Report.

Hola peps, I've said it before and I'll ay it again, Rachel has had to put with hate from the moment she walked in the front door.

Not one other HG has had to defend them self in that manner. It has nothing to do with being bi-polar. Yesterday was the first day she actually realized she was so disliked, and that she really was on her own.

What you witness was hurt feelings not a crazy women as the rest of the house would have you believe. I for one am a person who if you make me cry ... you better watch out! Its a survival technique.

I kinda of want for her to leave so they can start killing each other. Its not even a fair game any more. Adios.
