Pandora's Box Has Been Opened
2:58pm BBT - Feeds are back!
Matt has opened Pandora's Box!
Matt: Sorry guys. I always said I would open it... One thing I asked was, is it bad? And he said, I can't tell you.
Enzo: So you got hit up with Pandora's cock?
Matt: It was cool to that question mark. That room is big.. Bigger than any of the bedrooms.. All gold walls.
Rachel: Oooh! What if it was what America voted on.
Matt: Man, my heart's still racing. It would've been fun, just to see it.
Rachel: I'm excited for you, Matt.
Matt: Like, if it's not over?
Matt: I just hope they don't keep us up all night...
Britney: No matter what it is, it'll be different.
Matt: You're ok with it, right?
Rachel is speculating about what it might mean. Matt got a dollar card.
Matt: Basically in Big Brother verbage, it said, Congratulations, you've won a dollar, and beware of what you've unleashed upon the house. I hesitated longer than I thought I would, then I kicked the door down.. It could have been anything... When I was in there, I was asking what I can tell you, and I asked, Can I say final 2 role reversal? And he's all no, because that makes such a clusterf**k.
BB Calls Matt, and he goes inside...
Brendon and Rachel remain on the couch, as does Britney. Brendon asks Rachel immediately if she thinks Matt's being honest about only getting a dollar.
Rachel: Why would he lie?
Brendon: To avoid a big target on his head if it was like 20k.
Kathy, Ragan, Hayden
The talk is about Pandora's Box. Ragan's explaining to them that since Matt opened it, it might unleash something negative on the house... (Like him!)
Talk turns to Rachel, and Ragan says that while Janelle was genuine, Rachel is not, and rehearses her zinger lines... Hayden concurs and sites her apology to them for the Bring it on line.
Britney joins the group.
Hayden: If Matt only got a dollar, I think it could be a good thing for the rest of the house.
Britney: Whereas if he got like 25 thousand dollars, something bad would happen to the house.
Ragan: But a dollar is kinda neutral... I was saying to Hayden befor eyou came in, if you look at every argument that has happened in this house: Annie, Monet, Kristen, Me.. There is one common denominator in all those arguments...
Ragan retells his version of the tale of his argument with Rachel to Kathy, Britney and Hayden... very calm, very factual from his perspective. Brendon and Rachel bashing ensues...
3:16pm BBT - Matt joins the Cabana Crew
Britney's complaining to Matt about Brendon's thoughtlessness in cooking for them. Apparently he used too much chicken for a specific dish, and now they don't have enough chicken left for half a dozen dishes she would've preferred.
BB: Rachel, please go to the Diary Room.
Ragan: Stay there.
3:19pm BBT -
Brendon sticks his head in the Cabana Room to say he's going in the pool, if anyone wants to join him. Hayden says he will in a few minutes...
Speculation about Pandora's Box continues in the Cabana Room, where Ragan is wearing sunglasses... lol. Matt describes the Box and opening it...
Matt: Would any of you not have done it.
Kathy: No, we all would.
They speculate that America may have voted for Brendon and Rachel to stay... That that could be the negative aspect for the house. Ragan's the one pushing most of the theories..
Ragan: They probably put a 2 week limit on it.
***LOL! Oh, do they, Mr. Saboteur?
Ragan: I'm telling you right now. Rachel's in the Diary Room right now getting some power. Because they like drama. I'm telling you, I just think it's really suspicious... Matt gets called in. Smokescreen. Then Rachel.
Britney: Let me tell you this one more time, if America liked Rachel, I would not get asked these questions in the DR. I wouldn't.
Ragan's planting seeds in every garden, specifically Rachel's, as she's the easiest target. Always has been. Always will be.
Matt, Ragan and Britney
Matt: Would she be able to tell Brendon, if she had it? Maybe at her own discretion?
Ragan: Well, Jeff couldn't tell anyone...
***If Matt wants to keep the biggest target in the house, and thereby keep the target off his own back a while longer, and that of the entire Brigade, Ragan is actually providing him the best possible excuse to do so with this line of bs.
Britney: Either we missed her going to the backyard, or she's in the Taj, napping.
Ragan: You wanna go do recon, Britney?
Matt: Then you'll be able to gauge how she's feeling.
Britney passes Rachel en route to the bathroom.
Britney: Where've you been?
Rachel: uh, Diary.
Matt's watching from the spy screen...
Matt: She does not look happy, Ragan. That is not the look of someone who just got a power.
Ragan: Did you hear me run through all the fights in the house yet?
Ragan: Annie, Monet, etc., etc...
Britney returns and tell them Rachel isn't happy at all.
Matt: So that's one down. Brendon, for sure, they wouldn't give anything to.
Ragan: No, Rachel for sure of those two. If America voted to give something to someone, it wold have to be Hayden.
Britney: Especially after the week Hayden had...
Matt goes into the conversation he had with Brendon and Rachel...
Matt: Brendon emphasized many many times that he's winning PoV...
HoH Conversation between Matt, Britney and Ragan continues... Ragan says everything's out on the table now...
Ragan: The only way I see the two of us up on the block together...
Britney: ..is if one of them wins.
Ragan: Is if one of them wins.
Matt: They never once brought up the 5000 dollars.
Trivia at 3:55pm BBT... What for? Umm.. we don't know! lol. Could be a saboteur message.. Could be nominations.. Maybe Jeff has arrived... Skippy in the control booth hit the wrong button... The possibilities are limitless.
4:15pm BBT - Still Trivia... I wonder if it's noms... Could be, but usually, we hear the HoH being called to the DR first...
Feeds are back. Noms have not happened yet, and the house is not buzzing as if there's been a visitor.
Matt: It doesn't even say nominations today on the screen.
Ragan, Matt, Enzo, Kathy...
Ragan continues on his quest to cast suspicion upon Rachel...
Ragan: You know how America votes for things like a coup d'etat? I have a bad feeling...
Enzo: Why's she sleepin' in the Have Not room?
Matt: I know.. And without Brendon? He's always around her.
Enzo: She's probably doing it so someone will feel sorry for her.
Kathy: Where's Brendon?
Ragan: Hopefully at the bottom of the pool.
Kathy: You're funny, Ragan.
Have Not Room
Matt & Rachel
Matt comes and finds Rachel in the Have Not Room, where she's having a nap in a quiet place. They chat about the lack of a nominations today sign... and the possibilities for what his opening pandora's box may have unleashed on the house. He's doing a bit of fishing..
Brendon enters and they mention how odd it is that there's no Nominations Today up on the screen... Matt speculates that maybe America gets to vote for who the noms are this week..
BB: Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go inside and close the sliding glass door.
Matt takes off, leaving Brendon and Rachel alone.
The Screen now says Nominations Today. The HGs are aware. They are locked inside, and with the exception of Kathy, they are all currently gathered in the HoH Room, speculating about what's going on outside. They definitely heard building noises...
