Late night Waiting for the HOH reveal...
Hey ya'll - it's 11pm and STILL no HOH reveal. Really? Any bets on if it happens before _I_ go to bed?
So - what's happening:
Brendon made up the 'big bed' for him and Rachel, then padded up a cot for Kathy. Aww. Rachel's in the DR, Lane was falling asleep in the Cabana room, so just went to lay in bed. Enzo's already in his bed. Brendon's wandering aimlessly. The Cabana Crew consists of Kathy, Hayden, Britney, Ragan and Matt. Talk is about everything - even what kind of nipple and level of chest hair Ragan likes.
If something exciting happens - I'll post, otherwise, we're waiting for the HOH reveal...
11:04 - Attention Houseguests, the Storage Room is open... They run to see if there's alcohol...
-- no libations.
Lane: What the hell d'y'all do? I don't understand!
He makes himself feel better by wrestling Britney to the Living Room couch.
Britney: Just because I just defeated you, doesn't mean you can come in for another round!
--Lessa: they're adorable. Really.
Kathy feeds the fish -her 'babies' - her true (last?) Alliance in the house. Poor Fishies, they're DOOMED.
SWIM LIL FISHIES SWIM! We see what happened to those Kathy's gotten close too! SWIM!
Britney and Ragan in the Cabana room alone, Whispering -
Britney: Because I want Brendon to GO, and if she wins it, she'll save him. He'll save himself!
Britney: I hope I don't even get drawn.
Ragan: You think without him she'll be more determined?
Britney: I think she'll go crazy, she'll lose her drive, her fire. She wouldn't care if she got put up, she won't fight for HOH either.
Ragan: We need to go over quiz stuff this week! I think it'll be true or false, about different houseguests... so.. we need to like just practice with one another.
Meanwhile, the boys (Matt, Lane, Hayden) do Abs in the living room
Britney: Annie had a sister, Monet had a twin brother, Andrew only child, Kristen a brother.
Ragan: Andrew lost his mother
Britney: at 12
Ragan: Yeah... but I think the questions would be like this person left.... it's like anticipating the types that would be true - like the stuff that sounds like, is it true that Monet scored a major modeling cover or something like that - it seems like it'd be false, and a lot of people wouldn't think it'd be true, and then the offbeat stuff is...
Enter Kathy, a cockblock of another kind... Britney's thrilled -->
back to generalities.
Britney: It's always a quiz after endurance week.
They start making jokes about the comp - as Brendon complains that it's geared toward the smaller weaker players...
Britney: Honestly, I would have fallen sooner, but my legs were too weak to jump...
11:23 - Rachel's FINALLY out of the DR. Ragan is called in. SRSLY?
Britney: Can you do me a favor?
Rachel: Uh, sure?
Britney: Make pancakes again tomorrow? They were soooooooo good!
Rachel: Ok! Of course!
Brendon, Enzo and Britney have yet to go to the DR. Le sigh.
Rachel/Britney/Kathy in the Cabana room, Britney cautions Rachel that moving for a guy is harder than you think. Rachel mentions what she'll lose...
Rachel: I mean, I have it so good - my schedule, my job, school, my friends..
Britney: It's hard.
Britney: Nicolas made everything good for me, I was lucky...
Rachel: ...and he's in for a PhD...
Britney: You'd have to find a job, and... I just think it'd be a mistake.
Britney: That's just my opinion... You can do whatever you want.
Rachel: Yeah. I know.
Britney: You shouldn't be done with Vegas until your done with Vegas, know what I mean?
Rachel: LA and Vegas are so close... and I told him... I work during the weekends, but I could come during the week. He'd be in school, and then spend the evening with me, like on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, then fly to Vegas and work and go to class... it's only 3 hours.
Britney: When Nick and I first dated, we lived three hours apart. It was hard, but we were like stupid crazy and sometimes during the week we'd meet halfway for dinner.
Rachel: awwww. That's cute.
Britney: We made it as easy as we could, and it was still really hard.
Rachel: You know, the first year, he won't even be able to handle a girlfriend! It'd be so much better for us to do what we need to at least for that year...
--Lessa: Anyone else think Rachel's suddenly and deliberately distancing herself from Brendon? Too little too late, obvy!
Ab work is done. Brendon joins the Cabana Crew - everyone but Rachel bails. Heh. Rachel brings up the flight to Vegas, living apart...
Brendon: I don't want to have this conversation on camera. It makes me sad.
Rachel: I don't even make out with people I don't know.. well, maybe three times.
Brendon: I'm sure you've made out with celebrities and all that.
Rachel: I haven't!
Rachel: I'm sorry....
Brendon: It's ok. I won't let it bother me. See? gone!
Brendon: It's just hard, it's not my lifestyle. You talk about the ones that take you on trips, celebrities, and all that. I just.. I can't give that to you. And you're talking about all these celebrities and stuff, it's hard, you know, I don't want to get hurt. I don't want you to think I'm worth it, then go home to all those guys taking you on trips, and.. you know? I'm not gonna change. You know?
Rachel: I don't know what I can say to you - but I'm not gonna hurt you.
Brendon: It's not what you say, but what you do. Time will tell.
Rachel: When you're kissing me, it's better than anything.
Brendon: I just hope what I can give you is good enough
Rachel: BRENDON! Did you not hear what I just SAID?
Brendon: It's just scary. I've heard it from other guys. If it's not enough.. I'd be heartbroken...
Brendon: It's just easier not to deal with emotion, that's why I don't get into relationships anymore.
Rachel: Oh Brendon.
Brendon: These competitions are not... I swear to god... they couldn't be harder for someone my size, my build. Two in a row! they're just not level, the playing field isn't level! Wrestling bears - that's level!
Rachel: How is that level? Going through caramel is easier for big guys.
Brendon: See, not level. But when it's geared for little.. and Twice! Out of five competitions?
Rachel: One of us win POV. I have a feeling I'm gonna win POV and you're gonna win HOH. I just have this suspicion that only one of us will be on the block and the other will win POV.
--Lessa: wishful thinking, there, Rachel.
And they finally get Alcohol - so they run out to get some.
Brendon and Rachel congratulate Matt on "keeping the tradition of HoHs alive" and Brendon toasts to "burning biceps."
12:00am BBT General convo.
They're talking about Survivor - Brendon's sure it's a cakewalk - because his size, of course.
Kathy: Big people won the movie! You didn't see us little people in there!
Britney: Oh SNAP.
Kathy: Well it's true!
12:18 - Ragan's finally out of the DR!
Britney: LONGEST DR EVER.
12:20 Brendon to the DR. (head-desk)
Talk about The American Race - talk about the Virtual Reality challenge in the last thing
Rachel: But they were in totally a different country!
Ragan: It was a white room - at the Skywalker Studios!
Rachel: oh. They should do an Amazing Race in VEGAS.
Back to Survivor. Even Skippy is getting antzy - panning from Rachel, to the fruitbowl, to her wineglass, and back again.
Back to TAR:
Ragan: Matt would HATE me by the end of TAR. Who's gonna do this Detour? Matt. Who likes spinning? Matt. Who likes heights? Matt. Who likes to eat cottage cheese? Matt. I'm not doing anything! You have to think and choose wisely. It's hard.
Rachel: That's what I said - they discredited it!
Matt: I didn't say it wasn't hard, just that the challenges were lame for a viewer.
Ragan: Oh that I could agree with.
Rachel: They have to go to Vegas, and see how many tequila shots you can do!
12:30 Brendon's out of the DR.
Talks move to the Bachelor, and Rachel's friend who was on there, and she defends her friend's actions, and then go on talking. Ironic statement of the evening?
Rachel: I loved her, but all she did was talk about "Mah man!"
--..... sometimes, the snark just writes itself...
12:31 Matt to the DR! WHOOO!
WHO WANTS TO SEE MATT'S HOH ROOM? Finally!
Matt: Get your pretend happy faces on!
They decide to make it really over dramatic - oh the screaming. Good grief!
The goods: Weezer CD, Cat hair? Matt say's it's voodoo cat hair, good luck cat hair, Enzo reads the titles of the cd in Italian, he's excited...
Matt:...on the other hand we see more of you now than ever before - I'm a terrible son, I never visit, and I live 10 minutes away - Dad can't get the Mower running, but that's ok, the grass is tall enough to shade the windows so we don't have to plant trees, Happy belated birthday, never forget how much you are loved, Dad and Mom. My parents, of few words!
Starbucks, sliders, queso, airheads, candy, so much and so forth... Matt thinks the hair is from his dead cat - "goes with the Zombie Duck" two other duckies, picture of him and Stacy kissing ("Someday you'll get to see her face! I swear she's not a burn victim!")... some shorts...
Matt: we have enough action figures for the whole house now! I had six before, and here's three, there's nine in the house right? Work out strategy - we can all pick a character so I can plan and scheme in silence...
Hayden: Can we get back to libations?
Matt: Yeah, don't want to keep you here! Let's go booze! They didn't put my fat picture in here, it's so funny...
Talk about who the duckies are... Enzo's the pirate, Kathy
Kathy: Why am I the old lady?!
Lane is the angel "Lane-gel"
Matt: NOW I CAN SCHEME! Final Four! Muhahah!
Matt: I like the hoodie and degree. And the slow piecing together of Stacie's face over my HOH wins... Maybe they don't want to make Ragan jealous.
12:55 People are starting to leave, Rachel and Brendon, and Kathy look like they'll stay forever. And I? Am getting sleep. Night Dishers! I leave you with one last picture - Britney pretending to gossip on her "cell phone" - her mic pack. Hahah!
Britney: I know! Lane seemed nice, but he fell off before me... so embarrassing. I gotta go.
