Late night with Lessa!
Howdy folks! Since the Brigade had all individually and in pairs decided that this was the best case for them, with Brendon at the helm for a week. Who thinks they threw it to make it so, hm? Meeeee too.
So, let's check in on the house, hm?
We have Ragan in an emotional mess in the bathroom with Hayden who's chatting with him supportively. Matt's headed that way, and Britney's in the kitchen with Brendon.
We're still awaiting our HOH room reveal, and hopefully it's not too much longer. Will they be good sports about it after blasting Brendon on his bad sportsmanship? Time will tell...
Brendon goes to the bathroom
Ragan: Congratulations, Brendon, and I mean that. It was not an easy challenge.
Brendon: Thanks, I appreciate that. No, it wasn't, my back is feeling it.
Britney joins too - it seems the Bathroom is the congregation place currently, while Kathy and Enzo nap in the Taj. General chitchat about the comp, how it was fun, but hard. Hayden and Lane arguing on which one of them beat the other.
Hayden: I looked up and saw Brendon so far ahead and was like, what just happened?!
Britney: A couple times I tried to undo something and tied two more knots!
Britney: By the end, I was literally just standing in a bunch of rope going - where am I?!
Brendon: And the more rope you got, the harder it got too, like damn!
Britney: There's no way I would have gotten the rope on the platform, if I had managed to get through!
Lane: Sometimes they were hard, you had to climb through two to get one!
Matt: Was each lane the same?
Brendon: No, they were random - you'd go through one, and then be like real easy, then hit two or three in the way.
Ragan: They probably had the same number of knots, but random.
Britney: I didn't know it was water, I thought it was solid, maybe slippery...
Brendon: Then the hay, in the mud - when it rained was my favorite part. The lightening was cool...
Lane: The whole time I was thinking, those bastards up there know where I need to go next...
Bubbles! Don't talk about production!
Brendon: There was a point where I was so frustrated, I was like OMG...
Lane: You could easily lose it out there...
Brendon: There were two ends, and I didn't know which to pool...
Ragan: Britney was a zillion times farther than me! I was a mess! I'd get the hang of it for like 30 seconds, and start chanting follow the rope follow the rope and then just forget which rope!
Lane: I'd forget I was at the end of the rope!
Brendon: I'd be curious how long it took...
Brendon: It was so far...
Matt: I thought it'd take a lot longer, watching.
Brendon: I always wonder were interns doing it before?
Lane: Test it out..
11:14 Bubbles. Boys! Knock it off!
Britney: If they told us we had to all finish? I would just lay there and die. No way.
Ragan: My poor Puma's! They're trashed!
Talk about the competition continues, general chitchat...
Lane, Hayden and Brendon in the kitchen - Britney, Matt and Ragan in the bathroom.
Matt: I'm reserving any emotions until post-veto.
Britney: That's a good way to be.
Ragan;: I was saying to Brendon, it's not just losing, it's a whole bunch of things come into my head.
Britney: I was just already in a bad enough state, and this on top of it? I just feel the longer since that happened, the better I am about it. The more time goes by, though, I see how everything really is.
--Lessa: Aka - gonna kiss all the butt necessary, so be prepared? hehe.
Matt: Now what?
Lane: Hang around. See the room. Go to bed.
The lights are flickering through the house - they think it's the Saboteur.... specially when the fans turn on in the Cabana room (they've never been on before, they thought they didn't work at all) They head out toward the living room... just bubbles on their screen too...
Matt: Buddy system, everyone find a partner!
Hayden: Let's hold hands!
Brendon: Someone stand next to the f'in storage!
Laughter - then bubbles...
Everyone is in the living room
Matt: Nothing. Tomorrow probably before nominations.
Hayden to the DR.
Brendon: All the sudden the video pops up...
Britney: ...and says live!
Hayden's back: They hit the wrong button, Lane it was supposed to be you..
Matt: What's going on back there?! You all drunk? We don't got libations, because you drank 'em all?
Brendon: New guy back there pushing random buttons?
BB: You're not allowed to talk about production!
11:34pm BBT back
Hayden: The hot tub would be nice tonight
Brendon: Yeah, I'm feeling it. I think I dove a couple times.
Matt: You were doing flips
Brendon: I was a Ninja... only not smooth at all...
Matt: Somersault monkey
Brendon: Yeah. A somersault monkey...
After another spat of bubbles, they talk about sleeping arrangements, general chitchat. Lots of silence, Ragan's in the have not room laying down.
12:00am - still the same, talk is about the board games, etc. BBAD is over, let's get this show on the road AGP!
12:10 - Still chatting, about computers, games and some cool place that Matt goes to at times, etc. Brendon's position shows off some war wounds from tonight's competition...
Britney's in the DR - Kathy hasn't gone yet, she's the last one before they think that Brendon will get his key and HOH reveal.
Brendon: Those live feeds must be burning up tonight, huh?
Matt: Showtime, everyone's canceling their subscription...
12:15am - Everyone's laughing at Enzo as he talks about the HOH Comp today..
Enzo: I was cheating off Kathy! Then there were times I thought I could just pass a not and move on, like I'm gonna pass that box. Act like that one ain't even there, pass on to another box, maybe that knot will untie itself while I'm f'in around in this box... they're gonna kill me out there, man.. What's worse is everyone is making fun of me in there yo! That's what's f'in worse! Not even you guys, Big Brother...
And bubbles, while everyone else cracks up...
Matt: The saboteur is relaxing, Enzo's throwing competitions, intern's throwing power switches, it's the easiest job ever!
BB: This is a reminder, sleeping is not permitted in the living room...
Kathy: No one's sleeping!
Matt: I'm not sleeping!
Lane: Damn, Bro, heavy on the buttons... Trying to stay up for the HOH room...
Brendon: Me too.. who wants to see my h...o...h...(yaaawn)...
Lane and Enzo are munching and talking.
Enzo: If Britney makes fun of me, I'm going to bed.
Lane: She can't, she was right there with you.
Enzo: Who you think he's gonna put up? Matt and Ragan? Matt sent Rachel home...
Lane: They giving you grief?
Enzo: F, man, I'm almost scared to compete now! I'm questioning myself now, you know, who am I, you know what I mean?
Enzo: Everyone's picking on me now.. I don't even want my championship bowl anymore. They put Bozo on there.
Matt: Friends don't do that to friends - we just laugh when it happens.
Enzo: I let everyone down in that challenge, tonight, man. Sittin in the DR, I'm like yo, get me outta here man...
Matt: I might grow my beard this week, like a scraggly have not.
Enzo (laughing): Like the have not you are!
Have Not Room
- Matt goes in to check on Ragan.
Ragan: Its just... 7 more days of being a have not... things are hopeless.
Matt: They're not hopeless. They're not. Just wait til after POV and see. That's the best we can do. Because that's when I'll get upset. I feel like I'm letting Stacie down.. I'll feel like a failure if I don't pull this out for her. All hope is not lost, especially if it's you and Britney on the block - I can't lose this POV.
Ragan: You might not even play...
Matt: I know. That's the if factor.
Back at the dining table, Enzo's still feeling the loss...
Hayden: I thought the Meow Meow was all about swagger..
Enzo: Gonna have to change my name now.. call me Bozo...
Back in the Have Not Room...
Ragan: It's all a bit much for me.
Matt: For all of us involved. Made a bad decision in sending her home, that's all.
Ragan: It just sucks.
Matt: Sucks bad.
Ragan: I'm almost certain a double eviction happens this week...
Matt: Maybe, but think of how many things we've been certain of this week, and none of them happened.
Ragan: I just think I'm gonna go, and Brendon's gonna go, and then I'll be stuck at that house...
Ragan: I know I sound like a baby, I just feel very helpless right now. And the though of being a have not for 24 days after this week... it's a little bit f'ed.
Matt: I don't think you and Britney should have been picked on.. it was just being mean, basically.
Ragan; It;s the same thing that's been happening all week, you know?
Matt: It's just one of those nothing you can do situations right now. We just gotta tough it out..
Britney's out of the DR finally.
Britney: You find no one will listen to anything you say. I go in there and ask questions, and they're all we'll put in a request, I mean, you go and get Rachel a new bra, you'll buy Annie a new wardrobe, but I can't get a f'in sweatshirt?
Cams flip to Lane who surprise wrestling Kathy...
Lane: It's like calf ropin! Calf ropin!
Kathy: That was fun!
Brendon: WHO WANTS TO SEE MY HOH ROOM?
Everyone heads upstairs.
Brendon: Let's do this so we all can get to bed...
He got a picture of Rachel in the Taj, pictures of his 2 nieces, Weezer, the blue album, red bull,... ice cream, which he offers to everyone else, since he won't eat it.. cinnamon life, a stuffed animal with goggles on it... promex(?) bars, reeses pieces, pictures from his nieces, sandals, coke zero, honeywheat pretzels.
Brendon: Ok, it's from my sister...
It's odd to not have you around the house these days take full advantages of it. I hope you celebrated your birthday, (kids) are doing well, I know Alex misses you too, she will be more successful when she has you back at her side "I'm really close with my niece, so that's good." You've helped her build a good foundation, like no man ever has "My brother's not around for my 15 year old niece.." We support you 110% through it all, and your extended family is too, as far as Iowa, and farther. All our love...
Brendon: Same thing, help yourself..
He talks about his nieces - his brother isn't around for the 15 year old, and his sister has a 3 year old, and he's close with both of them.
Ragan: Congrats, Brendon.
Brendon: Thanks Ragan - and I know it's late, if you all want to go to bed, it's cool. Thanks for coming up.
Ragan heads out, Britney follows... Lane too.
1:05 - and my time's up - g'night, Dishers!
