Big Brother 12: Tuesday Afternoon, August 24th
Good afternoon, BB Lovers! I hope you're enjoying a lovely Tuesday!
After a slow start on the live feeds this morning, the HGs are off and running with the game now. If this is your first time on the blog today, you must check out Genie Sea's fantastic coverage from the BB12 morning into afternoon. When they weren't terribly entertaining, she more than picked up the slack, and once they got going, her fingers were on fire transcribing all the details.
- To sum up: both Brendon and Britney personally addressed the feeds (and their families) this morning.
- Matt had a strategy session with Ragan, during which Ragan told him his best bet was to take down an alliance, without involving him,
- and then Ragan made his way outside to Hayden and Britney to tell them why he was so angry with Matt yesterday...
In case you missed the notice on the Overnight Report, the BB12 HGs that are out of the house have finally begun listing their goodies on eBay. Check these out!
- Kristen's Hippietard & Wig on eBay!
- Annie's Cinco De Mayo Hat
- Annie's Scarf
- Andrew - Captain Kosher T-Shirt
As I join the HGs, Lane's got a pretty new pink toy that he's been working very diligently to inflate. I wonder if he'll share nicely with the other critters.
Out back on the couch, Hayden's teaching Britney the rules for a new game. They'll need to make dice out of her playdoh that have C L R in order to play.
Britney: Remember the day we were out here that Rachel wanted to make an obstacle course? That was so gross.
They are joined by the Penguin who shares his latest disturbing dream with them. Talk turns to chatter about NYC...
Britney: I just want to ride the subway.. Just ride it..
Enzo: I don't even care if I'm between 2 smelly people..
It's pool time... Lane's first in, with his pretty pink toy.
ENzo & Hayden
Talking about Matt...
Hayden: You got a fatal wound. Don't fight it. Just close your eyes and see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Enzo: I can't wait til Thursday.. Win HoH..
They're fantasizing about the CDs they'll get in their HoH basket. They promise to share with each other.
Enzo: I gotta request to send a message to my wife. It's our anniversary. Tell her I miss you, I love you.. Aww, man.. That'd be nice.. We win HoH. We can target either Brendon or Ragan.
Hayden: I think we gotta target Ragan.. Matty's been telling me he's gonna target us.
Enzo: There's no reason to go after Brendon. If Brendon wins HoH, me n you are safe.
Hayden: We still gotta fight, bro.
Enzo: I just hope it's not a quiz.
Hayden: We gotta study the days.
Enzo: And by weeks too.
Matt & Lane
Matt gives Lane a heads up about Ragan's thoughts and plans. He plans to tell Hayden and Enzo the same.
Matt: He definitely thinks us four have an alliance... Last night, he's like, I just wanna say this now, be totally honest with me, did anyone know before you went to talk to Britney, the stuff you were gonna say? I'm like, no. He says, what about afterward? I'm like, no.. did you hear something? He says, it seems like it was a plot.. He never once mentioned that any of you guys went up there, but it was heavily implied. I'm sure Britney told him...
Matt: He's crazy. I went into Cabana one day, and he's got all these Hershey bars lined up.. He's created like a calculator out of them. I think he's cracking. He's not the sappy emotional Ragan. He's some kind of creature. But, he still keeps telling me everything, so I'll keep letting you know. He's telling me a lot, but I'm sure there's plenty he's not. He's convinced Britney's working a deal with Enzo..
Enzo, Matt, Lane
Lane's throwing a tantrum about the insufficient replacement innertube..
Hayden & Brendon
Hayden goes to whisper game with Brendon, and Brendon turns the water on, making it impossible to hear clearly. The gist: Hayden gives Brendon the heads up about what was going on with Ragan yesterday...
Matt, Hayden, Enzo, Lane
Back at the pool. Enzo hasn't gotten in yet. He's just sitting there with his legs dangling. BB seems not to care. Matt's telling them about the new turbo Ragan..
Hayden: What's goin' on with the shorts, dude?
Hayden: Looks like you gotta chub.
***I didn't notice.
Talk turns to mesh in men's shorts..
Enzo: They wont do a double eviction.
Matt: I don't think so either.
Enzo: They wanna f--king torture us.
Talk turns to their wives.. families.. how psyched they are for the party in Vegas.. internet games and geek stuff.
Lane: I want a Double Eviction Thursday!!
**You're gonna get one. But be careful what you wish for, all of you.
Matt goes inside to grab another beer. Lane, Hayden and Enzo continue chatting by and in the pool. Enzo's still just dangling his feet in there, which he could quite easily be doing with his penguin suit on.
Talk turns to a Brigade road trip together... Matt tells them what to expect for a double eviction episode..
Britney joins the boys in the backyard. She just got to do her tweets. You can see them @BigBrotherHoH. Ragan comes outside as well..
And Enzo finally gets into the water. Not that BB cares...
Talk turns to HoH pics tomorrow. They all think it's annoying. Ragan takes the opportunity to throw in a Rachel jab... It's his job.
Ragan: I have a good feeling.
Britney: About what?
Ragan: I just have a feeling this is gonna be Brendon's last week in the house.
Britney: You've said that before.
Ragan: I've wanted it before. Now I have the feeling.
Enzo: We shoulda got ridda him when we had the chance..
Matt: I know, I know... (paraphrasing)
Ragan starts singing about his feeling, which sends us to the bubble factory. C'mon skippy. We return quickly to chatter about past morph comps.
Britney: The Aliens stole items from the house.. wasn't it?
Ragan: Do you think they'll merge our faces? West Hollywood Gayden.
Hayden: That would be hilarious.
Hayden's wearing entirely too much clothing.
While everyone else is chatting outside, Brendon's on a bit of a cleaning tear in the bathroom... It's quiet and orderly looks like it's giving him a feeling of normalcy...
Rejoining the backyard crew, they're talking about their favorite SNL actors and sketches... Matt thinks the doorbell sketch is the funniest thing ever. (***I'm done with you, Matt. Worst sketch in the history of SNL) Ragan's doing the majority of the talking.
Enzo and Britney are having a quieter unrelated non-game conversation at the end of the pool...
Britney: Double Eviction!!! There's still 7 people in here!
Enzo: Double Eviction!!
Britney: They should do an eviction right now. Last one in the pool is out of the house.
***For all the HGs who are yelling for it, it seems like tempting fate.
Matt & Ragan go inside to fix some food.
Hayden: What are we gonna do?
Britney: I think it's gonna be 4-0. Ragan's voting out Matt. Maybe he'll give him a pity vote.
Talk turns back to the Double Elimination.
Britney: I think there is, but I still don't feel like my army is prepared.
Hayden: I'm tryin'.
Britney: I appreciate that.
Britney's guiding the study, saying it's very important to know all the comp in order.. Hayden starts rattling off the comps in order, the winners and how they won. Lane is talking over him, not paying attention.
Lane tells Britney and Hayden about Ragan's candy pyramids, that Matt told him about earlier. Hayden plans to snake the candy...
Enzo: And then what? He loses on the first question? That's what that pyramid does?
Lane: (low to Brit) Are you close with Ragan? Does he trust you?
Brit: We are, but last night, he said that the house thinks that he and I are together, so we need to stop hanging out, because Lane told him...
Lane: He thinks you'r ewith Enzo.
Britney: Why would he think I'm with Enzo.
Lane: (to Hayden) And he's coming up to you, giving you misinformation about Brendon... Matt was telling me this. Ragan's gonna come and tell every person sometyhing different to throw everyone off.
Britney: He's still gonna put up Brendon.
Enzo: Someone has to be a pawn.
Britney: No, Brendon's not a pawn.
ENzo: I meant someone else..
Lane: So yes, jack those candies, because that's the only way hes studying on his own. Don't say anything.. ALl that came from Matt.
ENzo: How can he just throw his best friend under the bus like that. Britney, that's f'd up, right?
Britney: Yeah. I've caught Matt in a couple lies too. That I know for a fact that were lies. I think we'd catch him in a lot more if we tried.
Enzo: Ragan and Matt thought they had it.
Lane: Ragan's gotta go soon.
Britney: How many times have we tried to send Brendon home?
Hayden: But it's not us not trying, it's him escaping.
Lane: It's not Brendon that's the big ship.
Britney: You say that because you're safe.
Lane: Ragan just can't win next week..
Hayden: But one of us wins, we'll put up Ragan and Brendon, and Brendon goes home.. (because Britney's present)
They run scenarios, which are lies, because Britney is present.
2:32pm BBT -
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go inside and close the sliding glass door.
Matt: BB, is this gonna be a short one? You guys??
Everyone starts to head inside... Lane's grumpy. Britney tells him to buck up - he got to talk to his family yesterday.
Ragan: Will you ask them how long, if you get in, 'cause we're about to BBQ...
Britney & Enzo try to get into her HoH room.. It's locked.. They immediately start fantasizing about a new Pandora's Box, or a luxury comp. Matt bursts the collective bubble..
Matt: It's not gonna be anything, cuz they wouldn't have it ready to air.
Britney: Then why's my door locked?
Britney tries going to the DR to ask.
Brendon: I hope this isn't it. Have they ever started this early? What was the comp when we got locked in from Tuesday to Thursday?
Hayden: The surfboard comp...
Matt: But they said something about it.
Britney: They wont let me in the DR!
Matt: Every door's locked in this house.
Britney: (pout) I guess I'll lay down in the Cabana.
Britney joins Lane in the Cabana Room. He's being vulgar, and she's calling him on it, and even calls on his mother, "Loretta, do you hear this?" (**hehe) Talk turns to plans after the BB house. Lane's thinking of moving to Miami... Hmmm.. :0)
The group has grown and now includes, Matt, Hayden, Britney and Lane. Talk is about Have Nots. Britney now thinks it'll last for the rest of the season. Then the phone call... Hayden and Lane can't believe how detached Natalie was about both her call and her boyfriend's proposal..
Britney: Never in my life did I think I would choose a phone call from home over a trip to Hawaii.. What has my life come to?
Hayden: 53 days in this house. I miss home, real bad.
Lane: Me too.
Britney: Me too.
Hayden: People don't realize how hard it is.
Lane: At the wrap party, when Memphis said, you don't realize... I was like, what are you talking about? You didn't do anything.
Hayden: You give up a lot.
Britney: You give up your whole summer. I gave up a concert and a vacation. We gave up a lot to be here. A quarter of our whole year..
Hayden: No internet..
Lane: No cel phone.. No talking to anyone, no driving, no dogs..
Britney: Quarter of a year's a long time.
Hayden: It's a really long time.
Lane: We're almost done with it though.
Hayden: I think this week is just long.
Matt: I agree.
Talk turns to the dead fish, still in the aquarium, and then they complain that the people behind the walls hear every word they say, but they don't do anything about it, unless they remember to ask specifically in the DR.
Britney: I asked them that the other day. How come you hear us say that we're out of milk. but you don't do anything about it?
Hayden: I remember you saying that the other day.
Skippy is displeased and thinks we need a bubblebath.
Back from Bubbles. Matt goes to check and see if he can get into the DR. Ragan joins the Cabana Crew.. Having a look around the feeds, I find Brendon napping on his cot in the Have Not Room.
BB: Houseguests, the lockdown is over. You are now free to...
They all gather at the sliding glass door and pile out! Nothing has changed in the backyard.
Lane: I'm gonna burn something if y'all don't get me 2 balls right now!
**try asking for it in the DR, dear.
Britney, Enzo and Hayden have gone up to HoH.. Checking in with them, Enzo's on the floor, listening to music. Britney and Hayden are at the table, constructing something out of playdoh. Perhaps the dice they had mentioned earlier... Yes, the dice..
Enzo: Yous are makin dice?
Enzo: OK.. We'll play CLR..
Britney finishes hers. Hayden says it's perfect. They decide to make one more... Hayden'll do it.
The camera pans in close to show us some of the other creations...
Hayden and Britney leave HoH to go dry the dice in the sun. On their way downstairs, Hayden comments, " We have a lot of work to do."
Backyard - Grill
Matt, Hayden, Lane
Matt tells Hayden the same thing he told Lane earlier, throwing Ragan under the bus, whilst trying to prove his ever lasting allegiance to the Brigade, and possibly save himself this week.
Ragan comes outside. Matt says he'll tell Hayden about it later, but to know that Ragan will probably be coming up to him to ask him very specific questions about where and when things went down vis-a-vis Matt's nomination.
Ragan: I wanna be inappropriate zing bot... Hey, Hayden. How many 12 year old girls do you make blow you? Hey Matt, how many comatose patients in hospice have you fingered? Zing.
Lane & Britney are doing their brother sister routine, which is beginning to feel more like an old married couple routine..
3:27pm BBT - Bubbles...
Around the house...
- Brendon's still napping in the Have Not Room
- Lane's in the kitchen
- Skippy's elbow hits the bubbles for no apparent reason
- And we're back.
Lane & Hayden
Plans for the coming week...
Lane: He's trying to throw Britney under the bus.. He's lying.
Hayden: What do you think about the part where he said Ragan would leave Brendon in the house?
Lane: Oh, he wont leave Brendon in the house, and hopefully we'll get him out before Brendon anyway. If ragan knows too much, we've gotta get him out.
Hayden: Brit's gonna be so pissed.
Lane: She's gonna hve to deal with it anyways.
Hayden: But Ragan, if he knows about the Brigade..
Lane: There's not much he can do about it, unless he wins, and we've gotta win the next 2 HoHs anyways..
Hayden: I think some of the stuff Matt's saying is true.. Like Ragan is gonna claim he's going after Brendon, but he's coming after us.
Lane: Oh, he told you that?
Hayden says how Ragan's overselling it, about him going after Brendon.
Lane: I win HoH, I put those 2 up, you win PoV, or I win PoV, and at that point it's gravy..
Hayden: Or Enzo or Britney win PoV.. We'll keep it safe.
Lane: Who do you thinks harder to get out?
Hayden: Ragan. I think he's smarter about the game. Brendon's smart, but he's not that smart, and we can both beat him in a physical comp. Especially with Brendon on slop the next 3 weeks. We'll figure it out.
Lane: We gotta figure out what gets us to final 3..
**Winning a couple comps.
The hypothetical planning continues. This much is clear: Ragan is the primary target for the BG3D.
Hayden: I know one thing - Brendon thinks Enzo is playing the game for himself and nobody else. I can talk to him, tell him I wanted him to win the PoV last week... The key is Ragan puts up Enzo and I, and Brendon puts up you and Enzo.. So we can get each other off (GayTor - leave him be).. That's worse case scenario. This next week is final 6. This week's important man. Really important.
Lane: It's final 6 if it's not a double eviction. Final 5 if it is.
Hayden: One of us has to win this week.
Lane: If it's DE, it's a quiz hoH.
Hayden: What's great is that we all 3 get to play for HoH.. and Veto..
Lane: We've gotta win this week...
Hayden: Especially since Ragan's gone off the deep end. I almost wish we'd put up Ragan.
Lane: I pitched it. She was like, there's no way I'd put up Ragan, he's my friend. Well, he just turned on ya.
BB: Enzo to the DR...
- Britney's up in HoH , solo.
- Hayden's feeding the fish while Matt, Lane and Ragan watch.
Matt, Hayden, Lane
While I'm eating dinner, Matt makes his pitch to Hayden and Lane. Keeping him makes so much more sense, etc., etc.. Neither seems receptive. Time will tell. I recommend you check this out on flashback.
Around the house...
- Britney's upstairs having some Brit-Time..
- Matt, Lane, Enzo & Hayden are in the Cabana Room, chatting about movies.
- Both Ragan and Brendon are off camera.
- Kitchen - Enzo's getting himself some bean dip, then brings it to the bathroom.
- Bathroom - Hayden's Shaving. Lane's Showering.
- Matt's hiding under the covers in Jumanji.
- Britney's upstairs in HoH.
- Brendon's just come inside from the backyard to join the boys in the bathroom...
- Ragan's napping in Taj... placing the final nail the bromance coffin.
Brendon, Enzo, Hayden
Inside the kitchen, Hayden just told Brendon that Matt said Ragan's coming after him... No Surprise there..
Hayden: Ragan's been studying like crazy, using candy pieces..
Brendon: hehehe! That's not gonna help him for shi*t in a quiz when you don't have your candy in front of you. I've been studying too. I think I know it pretty well.
They come to the conclusion that as long as Ragan doesn't win PoV, they're all good. Hayden floats the idea of backdooring Britney...
It's all speculation til someone wins a comp!!
Hayden: Regardless of who goes up against Ragan, we all have the votes. We just have to make sure it's not two of us against each other.
They discuss studying and decide how to go about it.. Hayden wants to break it down by weeks.. And so they begin, Week One, Day by Day, Comp by comp, result by result, number by number...
4:45pm BBT - They're still going, and they have quite an impressive recall of all the events of the season. Hayden's doing most of the talking...
Whenever there's a tangent, Hayden pulls them back in..
4:47pm BBT - Still Jedi Training with Brendon, Hayden and Enzo. They're up to day 14.
8pm BBT -
Around the house...
- In the backyard, The Jedi Training continues with Brendon, Hayden and Enzo. Enzo's not a terribly active participant. " Day 42 is our next Saboteur message.. Guy and a Girl... 41 was Rachel goin' home.."
- In Jumanji, Lane and Matt are napping..
- In Taj, Ragan is napping.
- In HoH, Britney's just been called to the DR
Backyard - Couch
Enzo's gone in to the DR. Brendon and Hayden take a small study break to discuss Matt's futile attempts today... Skippy gives us a lovely ECU of Hayden.
Then straight back to studying.
Hayden & Brendon
Skippy's having fun with closeups, panning the length of Brendon to show how lean he's getting on the slop diet. We can see veins.
Talk turns briefly to Ragan. Brendon's laughing about his candy study tools. Almost on cue, Ragan comes outside and the conversation turns to the mundane...
Brendon and Hayden are talking about school and life outside the house...
Ragan goes inside to report to Matt that Brendon is outside Studying with Hayden, who he perceives as being polite to Brendon... Ragan makes fun of Brendon, saying how completely clueless he is... Then he asks Matt to quiz him on before and after questions... Ironically, Matt's 1st question is about the order of Saboteur messages. Yeah, Ragan's clear on those.
Matt & Ragan
Matt takes a break from Jedi Training to ask his question...
Matt: Are you voting for me regardless, or are you following the house?
Ragan: I'm probably going to... (long pause) follow the house. A sympathy vote's not gonna do anything, except make people think our relationship isn't damaged.
Hayden comes into the room.
Ragan: oh my G-d, Hayden. The reason I got outta the Hammock was because I couldn't take it.. from across the yard!
**When Ragan came outside, Brendon launched into a long speech about anything but the jedi training they'd been at for an hour.
