Big Brother 12: The Overnight Report
Good Morning, BB Lovers! Happy Friday!!
As I begin to write at 5am BBT, Lane, Britney & Enzo are *still* up and happy chatting in HoH. Lane's been flirty, trying to convince Britney to sleep up there in the HoH Bed with him.. She has declined, but says that she will sleep in his bed in the Jumanji...
Before I get into transcribing some of the conversations from last night, there a couple things I need to call to your attention:
- The HGs will very likely have a Luxury Comp today, and if this season follows the model of the many seasons before, it ought to be leaked to the live feeds! ☺ WooHoo!! If you need the 3 day free trial <-click on that!
- FYI - The folks at Real are doing a limited time Special Offer on the feeds & you can get in now for the special price of 9.99 per month!!!
- While I'm making predictions, I'm also expecting an Endurance Comp for this coming HoH... and then another one for the Final 3!
- There are 2 days left on Kristen's Hippietard auction! How high will it go?!? Keep an eye on the other BB Related Auctions too!
- Did you know that for $5 you can enter to win a chance at going to the Vegas Bash all the HGs keep talking about, and many, many more reality stars from BB, Survivor and other shows will be attending?
- Last but not least - It's $5 Friday on eBay Daily Deals - They put the new ones up at 11am EDT. Keep a look out! ☺
Please refresh this post right around 7:30am BBT for the details on some of the shenanigans from late last night in the Big Brother 12 House! If you haven't yet, please check out the fabulous Late Night with Lessa for everything that happened from 11pm to 1am, including Lane's HoH reveal!
Since the HGs spent the vast majority of the evening together, today's overnight will focus in on the time they spend apart - since that's where we'll find the most honest moments and get the most insight..
We join our final 5 at 3:20am BBT after Ragan has just told the rest of them goodnight, and following a quick pit stop in the bathroom, he makes his way out to the hammock to let us in on his thoughts...
Ragan: OK.. Some late night strategizing.. or just discussing the current state of Ragan's affairs before I go to bed for my homies who watch the live feeds.. So, I am, arguably, either the best place in the house or the worst place in the house, because I am totally by myself, without anyone who has my back.
Ragan: So, the way that I see it is, you have the 3 boys who have been working together, Lane, Hayden and Enzo, and then you have a pair, Britney and Lane, and then you have another pair, Hayden and Enzo. So I'm nowhere in this web. I have a friendship with Britney, but I know that Britney would slit my throat, if it meant getting further in the game. The thing is, Britney would slit anybody's throat, with the possible exception of Lane... So, where this could work to my advantage, if I don't win PoV, is that these pairs are gonna have to..
Ragan: Well, first of all, Lane is gonna have to make a really important decision, because I will obviously go up on the block as the quote unquote target, which they may be even discussing right now upstairs, but somebody's gonna have to go up on the block next to me, as the quote unquote pawn, and Lane is gonna have to decide where his allegiance lies. Does it lie with Britney, or does it lie with the boys?
Ragan: Because if he puts up one of the boys, he shows that he is undoubtedly paired up with Britney, more than he is with their alliance, which then makes the boys paranoid and nervous, "why did one of us go up? why did one of us go up? why wasn't it Britney, if he's really with us?" And that's when I become valuable.
Ragan: If he puts Britney up, which he might do just as a smoke screen, then he gains the confidence of the boys, but he risks Britney going home, because if it's me and Britney, and I win PoV, she stays up on the block, one of the boys goes up, and she's probably thinking, "Ragan votes for me to stay, the other boy votes for the other boy to stay, and then Lane breaks the tie."
Ragan: It's a very tangled web. So, I think I'm just gonna kick back this week, be nice to everyone, which isn't hard, because I like everyone, and not cause any waves and see how the chips fall.. But... it would be foolish of me to assume that my life in this house does not depend on me getting the Veto on Saturday. I have to win the Veto to stay... because Britney's not a dummy, and I think that even though I'm a singular player, compared to Hayden and Enzo, Britney realizes she can get past the next HoH, she can probably win the quiz components of the Final 3 HoH and make it to the Final 2.. and the only person in the game who'll give her a run for her money on a quiz.. is me. So, she honestly probably wants me gone real bad this week. Real bad.
Ragan's monologue to the live feeds continues. If you'd like to catch it in its entirety in the flashback section of the live feeds, go to Camera 3 - 1:20am - Aug 27th
I'm movin' on!
Hayden & Lane
Hayden and Lane have just come down from HoH to nuke some burritos and talk some game. Enzo and Britney remain up in HoH on Cameras 1/2 having a fun time, knowing they're not the targets and joking, "Put us Up! Put us Up!"
Lane: So.. what do I do about the pawn situation?
Hayden: Use Britney.
Lane: Just Britney?
Hayden: Uhh.. I think so. Because if you put up, in my opinion, if you put up me and Ragan, then she wins the Veto, pulls Ragan off.. I don't see that happening though.
Lane: mm mm. We're in the best situation either way.. Let's say Ragan wins.. Worst case scenario, I put Enzo up as a pawn, then ok, Britney goes up, Britney goes home, Enzo's safe.
Hayden: You can put Enzo up as a pawn.
Lane: I know, but he's gonna take it bad.. but I can also use that as Britney, Enzo's gonna be pissed, if I put him up, he's not gonna like it. You're not goin' home no matter what... besides if Ragan wins PoV. hehe
Hayden: Right. I mean, if you have to, I trust you to put me up as a pawn, if you have to.
Lane: No, no, no.. That's not... I can't risk that, because you're my key to Final 2.
Lane: So that's stupid. So it's gotta be Enzo or Britney.
Lane: And.. Britney can have a chance at winning HoH next week.. obviously, over Enzo.
Hayden: Like it.
Lane: And Britney's not gonna put me or you up, but if she has to put.. Obviously she'd have to put one of us up..
Hayden: Like, ideally, Ragan leaves this week.
Hayden: Britney leaves next week.
Hayden: Then it's me 'n you playin' in the final 3.
Hayden: And then, you and I go to the final 2... Enzo makes 25,000. One of us makes 50. One of us makes.. a lot.
Lane: We're good. (whispers) Ragan's not gonna win PoV. We have too many people in it.
Hayden: Yeah.. he just can't, man. Like tonight? He crumbled, man.
Lane: Yeah. And I don't think, like the next.. OK, these are the next quizzes we're gonna have. The Blocks - You can read em and you can see em, so I think you're gonna do bang on that. I do better, if I can read it. So I think we have just too many people in it to beat him... in anything.
Lane: We have skill, endurance.. We're not gonna have any more endurance against a wall.. It'll be on a log or something..
Hayden: Even if we do, I think I can beat her.
Lane: Oh yeah!
Hayden: Like I know.. We got her. Think about this, we have a 1 in 4 chance.. a 2 in 4 chance of us making it to the final 2.
Lane: mm hmm
Hayden: 50% chance we're gonna make the final 2.
Lane: This HoH, someone's gonna get their feelings hurt.
Hayden: mm hmm
Lane: But it's at the point.. I don't care if Britney goes home. I don't care. She's a good girl. I was aligned with her at the beginning to help us, but... now it's toward who's gonna last. I would want Enzo over Britney, no matter what ...
Hayden: And not even because I like him more, but just because we have a better chance of beating him..
Lane: Oh, duh..
Hayden: ..in competition. I think if it was me and Enzo or you and Enzo in the final 2, I think Enzo's got a good chance to beat us.
Lane: Oh, definitely.
***I'm not following that logic, at all!
Hayden: I almost think, if it's me against Enzo in the final 2, he beats me.
Lane: He beats everyone.
**OK, boys, you've been in the house a little too long. Your brains have melted.
Hayden: I think so too.
Lane: So who do you want me to put up as a pawn? Or just talk to both of em, and see where they're at... Cuz it's gonna be either way... It doesn't matter who's goin' up. The only thing that matters is, who's gonna hurt their feelings. Ragan wins. Britney's not on the block. Britney goes on the block. That's the only way. Britney knows I'm not puttin' you on the block. She automatically knows that... So she knows she's goin' up.
Hayden: Well, either way...
Lane: So both of em are in the same boat, but different situations.
Hayden: What I think you need to do is put Enzo up as a pawn, but you tell him..
Lane: I know, but how do I tell him??
Hayden: I'll tell him with you.. We'll say, dude, if we do it like this...
Lane: ..then Britney's not gonna try hard (in the PoV), and then, worst case scenario..
Hayden: Worst case scenario, Ragan wins, you put up Britney...
Lane: Britney goes home.
Hayden: Then you tell Enzo that... Then, Britney's not pissed at us.
Lane: Britney's takin' both of us to final 3, no matter what.
Hayden: So I think that's best case scenario...
Lane: You're gonna have to help me on the Enzo part though.
Hayden: Yeah, I will.
Lane: "Cause he's already tryin' to trap me thinkin', hey, you're in too deep with Britney. I'm like, dude, I haven't even had like 5 minutes of HoH...
Hayden: I think that's smarter. Honestly.
Lane: Well, it's gonna work out for all three of us, including Enzo.
Hayden: Especially Enzo. But, uh, yeah.. We'll have to talk to him tomorrow.
Lane: When's nominations?
***Really, Lane? OK.. This conversation goes on a bit longer, but you've got the gist, and the true intent for the week now, so we're moving forward.
Hayden's gone downstairs to bed. Ragan's long since been in bed. Lane, Britney and Enzo remain up in HoH, and Enzo's listening to Lane's Eminem CD, freeing Britney and Lane to talk about him...
Lane: Enzo's gonna be so pissed off.
Britney: Yeah, but it's gotta happen.. Plus I think if he's nominated, he's gonn aplay harder for PoV.
Lane: Well, I want everyone to play hard for it.
***And that, dear girl, is your big clue. Take it or leave it.
Britney: Everyone's gonna play hard for it, but he plays harder when he's nominated, I'm tellin you. If he'd been nominated last week. If I'd have nominated Matty (first), instead of Enzo, Enzo would not have played as hard as he did.
Lane: He's gonna be super pissed at me.
Britney: Somebody has to be a pawn.
Lane: It's the same difference. I mean, Hayden even offered himself down there.
Britney: Yeah, because, it's obvious. I was a pawn just now. Like, sometimes you've gotta be the pawn, but it's safer to go with him, because if Ragan wins the PoV, then you already have that position filled. Know what I mean?
***You better pray Ragan doesn't win the PoV, Britney.
Britney: So if Hayden nominated himself, I mean, nominate Hayden.. but I think it's better if (she gestures towards Enzo)
Lane: Both me n Hayden are gonna talk to him... together..
Britney: You think that'll work?
Britney: Have you thought about final 2 yet?
Britney: It has it's advantages. Like, I think people play harder when they're fighting for their life.
Lane: OK, well what about if Ragan wins?
Britney: Yeah, if he doesn't use it, duh.
Lane: If I put 2 pawns up there, and Ragan wins, I'm left with 2 pawns...
Britney: But if you put Ragan and 1 pawn..
Lane: But we want Ragan out.
Lane: We want Ragan out.
Britney: I know, but I think he'll play harder if he's on the block than he will if he's not... Not everybody agrees, but I just think that if I was on the block, I'd play harder than if I wasn't.
Lane: I think at this point, Ragan knows, like if he's up or not, he's gotta fight for it.
Britney: You're right about that. He said it to me. He's like, "The only way I'm staying in this house is if I win every competition."
***Truer words have never been spoken.
Britney: I just knew when you won HoH, it was the best day of my life.
Lane: Why? You always fight with me.
Britney: I know. But I wanted you to win HoH.
Lane: I hope there's a Luxury tomorrow. I don't see why there wouldn't be.
***Me neither. Can't wait! :)
Lane: You wanna sleep up here?
Britney: Yeah, but I can't.
Britney: But I am gonna stay at your place in the Jumanji.
Lane: OK, why can't you sleep up here?
Britney: It's not right.
Lane: For who?
Britney: The rules.
Lane: Your done!
Britney: That's not true.
Lane: It is.
Britney: You're wrong.
Lane: OK, so, when you get outta here, and you see that you're done with, how upset are you gonna be that you didn't take this opportunity?
Britney: hehehe.. You're stupid. (she puts on his hardhat) Do you like my hard hat?
Britney: Could I work in the oil field?
The flirt continues, and it's pretty cute, if you'd like to check it out on flashback...
