Big Brother 12: Tuesday Afternoon, August 10th
Good afternoon, BB Lovers!

A quick note for live feeds subscribers before we begin, Chelsia and Missy will be interviewing BB12 Kristen during the Happy Hour Call-in show on Thursday. They're requesting questions be submitted in advance. If you'd like to put your questions for Kristen into this comment section, I'll see that your questions get to the right place. :)
Make sure you check out the eBay Daily Deals today too! :0)
OK.. On with the updating!
Brendon & Rachel
The starcrossed pair has a nice afternoon snuggle in the Cabana Room, completely unaware of the fate that will soon come to pass.
Hayden, Enzo, Britney, Lane
Lane: Man, the Diary Room sessions are long today.
Enzo: Especially if you're the saboteur.
Britney: Are they long today?
Hayden: Mine wasn't.
Talk turns to Jay Leno...
Britney: I prefer Chelsea Handler. I've been to David Letterman... but he had an affair. Gross.
Enzo: You don't think you'll ever have an affair.
Britney: No. Gross.
Enzo just wants to be famous, so he has to hide at an all inclusive hotel. Britney was supposed to have a vacation with Nick in 2 weeks, for her Birthday. Enzo will be missing his 3rd anniversary...
Lane comes over and talk turns to exercise.
Enzo: It's all a mind game in here. That's all it is. You even gotta trick your body. It's all a mind game. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
Britney begins jedi training with the boys... Kathy comes out for a smoke...
Enzo: Why did you disrupt my nap today? I gotta get my beauty sleep!!!
Britney: 'Cause of the big billiard bowl tonight.
Lane: We're not playin' tonight.
Enzo: Yeah we are! In fact, that bowl should be out here glistening in the sun right now, so people will see it and wanna play.
Lane & Hayden start tossing a ball between the couch and the pool. Hayden runs inside to get his trunks on so he can play... Enzo joins Kathy on the smoking stoop for a minute, then inside...
Lane, Enzo, Hayden
Lane: You get any powers last night?
Enzo: Yeah... I learned that the 1st HoH was on night 1, and the next one was the following week...
Lane: Cool, so you learned that there's an HoH comp every Thursday?
Hayden: Rachel is 100% sure who the sab is, but she wont tell us.
Enzo: But she wont tell us. I'm losin' it, yo. I need to evict somebody. Once we evict somebody, then that's another head gone.
Ragan & Matt come down from HoH... Matt heads into the storage room. Ragan forages in the fridge for a moment, hungry but not knowing for what.
Backyard - Couch
Ragan joins Britney
Britney: What did he say?
Ragan: We were discussing the possibility of them calling a house meeting, and whether it's better to go along with it, if they do, or not.
Britney: mm. I think not.
Matt: I'm sure they're gonna want a house meeting... You guys both went in the DR together last night, right? What did they say?
Hayden: They said they can do whatever they want, but they also said they can't really answer..
Matt: I was telling Ragan.. I think I'm in a terrible position here... I just feel like we're dealing with this bs.. Even with what's about to happen today... Should I even play into this sh*t? Should I just say, Rachel, shut up? I have valid defenses..
Lane: I think once they do that, Ragan will argue..
Hayden: Regardless, if you got 10 grand or a dollar, it doesn't matter to us. Worse case scenario, Britney and Kathy could go against you. Ragan never will.
They go over who will put who up.
It's all irrelevant. Matt has the Diamond Veto. If someone goes up next week that he doesn't want up, he'll just take em down.
Matt & Lane leave. Enzo and Hayden remain together in the Storage Room, laughing about their joint DR last night. It was inconsequential. They're laughing about it.
Matt, Ragan & Britney
They're talking about the pending house meeting, which is purely speculation on their part... Britney says she wont be attending. Ragan agrees. They wont dignify it with their presence.
Britney goes inside, and Matt reminds Ragan that picture day is tomorrow. Ragan asks if he'll please just take picture of inanimate objects.
Ragan: Oh, Britney has such a good idea, if Brendon doesn't win HoH. The idea would be to put Brendon and a strong player up, instead of him and Kathy, because..
Matt: Because then the strong player wins PoV, and then Kathy goes up.
Matt even volunteers to be the person. It wouldn't bother him one bit. Handy having the Brigade.. and the Diamond Veto. Enzo comes out to the couch to join them, with a salad. Ragan goes into a scene from Precious, which brings Matt to ask if they've ever cast a fat woman to be in Big Brother. Matt, Ragan and Enzo have a field day making fun of heavy women for a couple minutes...
Matt: So as of Wednesday, all the obese women in America will hate me. That's ok. I gotta no fatties policy anyway.
Ragan has a theory that Rachel's letter from her sister was a code they had established prior to her entry into the house. The line, "I love you more than hunting for sharks in oil free water" (or something to that effect) has him troubled, and he says that when asked about it, she was sketchy.
1:51pm BBT - While the guys hang on the couch, Britney's laying on a towel nearby, tanning.
Enzo: Ants have like the biggest army ever.
Matt: What're you talking about?
Hayden: He's dreamin'. He was up late last night, rappin. (it's in the overnight)
Enzo rejoins the conversation...
Enzo: She's probably up in HoH, lookin' through your luggage...
Matt: I hope she is, so she'll stfu about it already.
Enzo: I don't even think there is a saboteur.
They spin a while on the saboteur... None of them can understand why anyone would accept it, even if it came with a cash bonus, because America could mess with your vote and the game. Enzo and Hayden say the only person they can see accepting it would be Kathy, because she has no chance of winning the game... Ragan is present for the conversation, but he's not adding much to it.
They decide is has to be Kathy, or Rachel or Brendon, because they're desperate.
2:08pm BBT - They're still discussing the saboteur... Ragan is completely above suspicion, as he is seen as too smart to ever accept the role.
Talk turns to food.. Mexican food. They're all getting hungry and fantasizing about a Mexican Feast Luxury Prize.
We move in to a little Brendon and Rachel bashing... Led by Britney, stamped by Ragan and approved by all present.
Britney really wants to win HoH. Ragan says he does too. Matt and Ragan are ribbing Britney about when they thought she and Kathy were mother and daughter.
Britney: I can't wait for y'all to meet my mom at the finale. She's meaner than me, and she's watching right now. She's bashing both of you on the boards right now.
Talk of Britney's mom turns to talk of Survivor, because her mom made it to the finals in casting for the 1st season.
Matt: I thought you were making food.
Ragan: I want to. I just don't want to go in there alone.
Matt: Den of serpents?
Ragan: Den of serpents.
Matt escorts Ragan inside to protect him from big bad Rachel, whom he's been avoiding for 2 days now. Then Ragan walks all by himself to storage...
Outside, Lane's doing abs and Britney's standing in the pool.. Hayden does a running dive in.
Britney: Hayden! You could've died!
Hayden holds the inflatable out for Lane, and Lane dives clear through it.
The guys try to talk Britney into it, but she stalls long enough for BB to put a halt to the game.
After a little splash skirmish, we have a brother sister standoff in the pool...
Britney, Hayden and Lane
Time for Underwater Marco Polo. Britney's it. She gets Hayden in under a minute...
Hayden's not so lucky.
2:44pm BBT Brendon comes outside with a plate of food and has a seat on the couch. After a couple minutes, Rachel emerges as well.
Brendon, Rachel & Enzo
Chatter about whether America loves Rachel, or loves to hate her.. Rachel figures she's in the love to hate category. Either way, she's in a very happy place right now. Then on to The Soup...
Rachel: Everyone loves you. You're like the Casey... Everybody loves the Meow Meow...
Talk turns to past HGs people didn't like and why...
Brendon: I wonder if people are gonna think we're dumb for not taking out Matt week 4.
Rachel: Yeah. Probably. I can imagine a viewer watching it like, Noooo!
Enzo eggs on a Matt bash... then...
Enzo: Ragan and Matt are so close. How did that happen?
Brendon: The gay dude and the midget. It sounds like a bad sit-com.
Rachel: The thing is, Matt and Ragan are a "pair." Ya can't say alliance in this house..
Enzo: Where are they now? They're always together.
Brendon: It's almost like they're boyfriends. As soon as they're running endurance comps that aren't built for midgets, he's not gonna be winning them.
Brendon extends the Matt bash... Enzo eggs it on. They move on to teasing Rachel about incessantly plugging Vegas. Brendon says people have probably made drinking games out of it.
Rachel's ready for a work out, almost.
Rachel: Do you think people make fun of my outfits?
Brendon: Of course.
Rachel: When I wear sequins every Thursday night?
Matt has a seat on the couch, talking with Enzo about the Pool Tournament tonight... Rachel goes silent in Matt's presence. She goes to her comfort zone...
...as much as that's possible. Enzo and Matt chatter on about smashing... Then music.
Britney & Hayden
Chatter about the saboteur... Britney says she asked BB if America voted and if there was an incentive for the person who accepted the role, and BB wouldn't answer either question.
Hayden: BB would have to know whoever they proposed this to would say yes, and the only people who would do that are people who really have their back against a wall.
Britney: I think another huge incentive is if America voted, because if America voted for you, you don't want to say no.
They stick it on Brendon, Rachel or Kathy. Talk turns to how feisty Kathy's been getting lately. Then, of course, Rachel bashing...
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go inside and close the sliding glass door.
They all file in and start talking about the button Kevin pushed last season, and what that was related to. They wonder why there's a lockdown...
Rachel: Maybe they're gonna do something Saboteury outside..
Then on to chocolate chips... and more lockdown speculation. Matt throws out the idea of a banner...
Brendon: Can I trust you?
Brendon: I want her to stay. I think you, her and Enzo can do really good. I wanna have a house meeting to confront Matt about the Pandora's Box. SHould I do it tonight or tomorrow morning.
Hayden: Right now, I think it's split between you and Rachel... But if I were youk, I would be careful, because they're smart... I'm not gonna tell you not to do it, but... Me n Enzo, we're gonna have to vot ethe way the house votes, because if we don't they're gonna point fingers at us for being the saboteur. If the house votes you out, we'll go with the house.
Brendon: I really want her to stay.
Hayden: But do you understand what I'm saying, we have to vote how the house votes.
Brendon: Are they talking about that? Like, me getting her to stay?
Hayden: No.. well, they did throw that around after the veto ceremony... There's no telling.. I don't know about a house meeting.
Brendon: Do you think it's too obvious? I just wanna bring up Pandora's Box..
Hayden: But if you do, Enzo and I have to stay neutral.
Enzo: Game talkin?
Brendon: I just wanna see how the votes are going. I want Rachel to stay and I need to make sure the house votes me out. Britney and Ragan f'in hate me..
Hayden: Whether you stay or go, they're gonna hate you.
Brendon: And that's all the excuse they need to put me right back up next week. I don't need that. I'm done. Those 2, then the 2 of you, that's all I need.
Hayden and Enzo give him lip service, but keep reinforcing they have to vote with the house. Enzo bails. Brendon shares with Hayden that they're sure Lane is the saboteur...
Hayden: I don't share anything with Lane that doesn't need to be shared.
Brendon again reinforces that he wants to go and have Rachel stay this week, and he needs Hayden's help with that.
Brendon: If it comes up, and you can help us out with that...
Hayden: Either one of you staying is good for me.
Brendon continues to push Rachel staying, based upon her quiz strength...
Brendon: I need to get Britney and Ragan fired up about me..
Hayden: I understand that, but don't throw me under the bus.
Brendon: Nooo.. Dude. Just keep an eye on Lane. He would definitely betray you.
BB: Houseguests, the lockdown is over. You are now free to move about the house.
This conversation, while game, is not going to lead anywhere... So, although it's ongoing, we're done. Hayden is kind and decent, telling Brendon not to make it too obvious, if he does decide to go ahead with it... He also tells Brendon the degree to which he and Rachel are being watched...
Hayden: Last night, when I went up there after we talked, they were all watching you and Rachel on the spy screen...
Brendon & Rachel
Rachel: If they want me gone, that's what they want, and I'd rather spend time with you (than going through any ploy). I'm ok if they vote me out.
Rachel: They hate me. That's the reason.
Brendon: I need you to help me. Look like you're trying to be a little more social.. It'll help. At some point, I might make an obvious attempt... I need them to want me to leave. I hate it here. The majority of them are fake. Super fake. I want you to win this HoH. I want you to win the 500,000 dollars.
Rachel: Well, if the reason they're getting rid of me is that I'm a stronger competitor...
Brendon: But if I can get Matt, Britney and Ragan really pissed off, then Hayden and Enzo will vote with the house and vote me out. If I stay here, my life will be f'in miserable next week.
Rachel: Mine will too. What feeling are you getting?
It comes clear.
Brendon: I love you, and I want this for you.
Rachel: I love you too, but it's not gonna happen.
Ragan, Britney, Matt, Hayden, Lane
Operation Piss off Ragan has begun. Ragan's pissed and retelling the tale, but it's not working..
Ragan: It's starting. I get out of DR, and I'm making my way across to the kitchen. He sees me coming, so he slows down, until he gets to the sliding glass door, and he's just standing there, and I'm trying to get around him, and I stepped on his flip flop and he turns around and goes "Excuse You."
Ragan has told this story now 4 times in 5 minutes.
Ragan: OK, everything I said this morning, I take back.
Matt: What did you say this morning?
Ragan: That I wanted to stop making fun of them.
Britney has a negative Brendon story to tell as well.
Enzo joins the group. Ragan tells the story again. Ragan restates that it's obvious why he's picking on the two of them, and he would never do that to any of the bigger guys.
While the Cabana Crew repeats itself, Brendon's outside talking to Kathy about her personal life, and Rachel's on the elliptical. Kathy heads inside, and Brendon checks in with Rachel... She's no longer in her happy place.
Rachel: There's nothing I can do. Nobody wants me here.
Brendon: I do.
Rachel: We can't have a plan, because they hate me.
Brendon's encouraging her to keep her emotions in check. She says it's pointless and tells him that she invited Britney for a bubble bath and got blown off, which leads to more of "they hate me..."
Rachel: Since week one. I feel like the more you're a dick to them, the more they're gonna want to get rid of me, to hurt you.
Brendon: Really? What's wrong with these people? They're fu**ed up in the head.
Everyone but B/R
Ragan: What's that disorder when people are just completely socially inappropriate?
Ragan goes on to describe it, and he's not getting any responses, so he admits he was making a Brendon dig.
Hayden: America needs to register him at the a-hole registry.
Ragan: The gruesome twosome.
Brendon & Rachel
Rachel: It's because they're scared.. They are scared of being beaten. They think that at this point in the game that they have complete control of the game. The worse part is, they're trying to get Hayden on their side, and when push comes to shove, they're gonna do the same thing to him. Bottom line is, I've had a great Big Brother experience.
Brendon: I'm proud of you.
Rachel: I'm proud of myself!
This conversation is ongoing... Rachel's again coming to grips with her coming eviction...
Around the house...
- Kathy's outside talking with Brendon and Rachel. Brendon's had enough of being Mr. Nice Guy. He has no respect for the non-competitors, and he plans not to speak to them anymore. They're both hurt and offended by the whole process, and Kathy's listening intently, so she can run back and repeat everything as fast as possible.
- Enzo and Lane are upstairs talking about next week's HoH, and making sure that if Britney or Ragan win, Kathy goes up, and not one of them. Enzo has told Lane that Brendon accused him of being the saboteur.
Enzo: I feel much closer to Rachel now... and I feel like she's much easier to manipulate.
Hayden: Really? I feel like he's much easier.. and he's so awkward! Like, he pulled me into the Storage Room today...
Matt: People know that's just him though..
Enzo: The minute he loses HoH, Brendon who?
They're all very happy to be getting so close to the final 4.
Matt: From beginning to end, a 4 person secret alliance??
Talk turns to the fans, and do we love the Brigade. Enzo nails it.
Enzo: I think they can't wait to see us in final 4, knocking heads!
***That's what I'm looking forward to. Eat your own.
Ragan: That was awesome. Me and Britney just knocked it out. (DR) "We have a roommate who is in"toe"lerable... Cue the Brendon bash...
Ragan announces he will not be participating in the pool tournament tonight, because he doesn't want to play with Brendon. "I'll just wait til he's gone next week. I hate him that much."
Around the house...
- Backyard- Couch: Rachel gone into a funk, and Brendon's trying to cheer her up. Her funk is giving her clarity about who stands where, though. Brendon wants them to be happy in their last days there together. Rachel does too, but the funk remains.
- Pool Table: Britney, Lane, Matt and Hayden are playing.
Around the house...
- Rachel & Brendon have moved inside to begin prepping dinner. At the moment, they're foraging in the storage room, and heading back to the kitchen... Rachel's mood has again lifted.
- In the backyard, the pool match continues with Lane, Hayden, Britney and Matt.
- Cams 1/2 - Talk in the kitchen revolves around Rachel's privates.
- Cams 3/4 - In the backyard, Lane, Hayden and Matt are running around the yard, throwing balls at each other... Hayden goes inside to get Enzo. Britney's watching and enjoying from the sideline. Lane keeps calling Matt, the gremlin. Britney asks if he's ever been called that before. Matt says never once in 30 years. Enzo comes out and they explain the rules of the game.. It's fun! :)
