Feeds are back!!
Matt is the ReNom
Feeds are back!!
Matt is the ReNom
We'll be posting the PoV Ceremony Spoiler & Aftermath here within this post, just as soon as the feeds come back.
It's already been an incredible, non-stop morning of hard-core gaming in the BB12 house, and if you missed it, you must check out Genie's fantastic & detailed post: Monday Morning: Who Will Britney Pick?
Everyone made their way up to HoH for a talk, except Ragan. Him, she went to find on her own, as he was outside in the hammock, and she let him know that absolutely everyone had been throwing him under the bus. She tried to soften the blow, saying that's "what people do when their backs are against the wall," but Ragan got the message loud and clear... and looked completely crestfallen.
Matt believes Britney went outside to tell Ragan he's going up. Ummm.. Not so much, Sparky. Matt will likely be the only one surprised by the PoV Ceremony today. It's going to be quite the afternoon on the feeds! ;)
Talking about Enzo being away from his wife and daughter for 2 months... ?? Matt does not look happy! Britney's preparing something on the stove and asks Matt to fetch her some half and half from the Storage Room...
Let's see if we can get more info from the guys outside in the pool... Chatter about splitting the 500k 6 ways..
Backyard - Britney, Hayden, Brendon, Lane
Britney: How awkward is to make slop for someone you just put on the block? Heyyy, here ya go! I just backdoored somebody. That's cold.
12:46pm BBT Meanwhile, alone inside at the kitchen counter, Matt's eating his slop, while looking outside periodically...
Matt gets up from the counter, looks outside, paces a bit... comes back to the counter to finish his slop, then puts it in the sink to wash it. Then he heads to the bathroom.
Brendon: Somebody thinks there's a possibility of a tie vote.
Britney: Someone has already asked me that.
Britney: It's been 10 minutes, and we're already talking about ties.
Enzo gets into the pool.. from the jacuzzi..
Britney: Enzo doesn't really want to be in the water right now, but he doesn't want to be in the penguin suit more.
Enzo: When am I gonna get thrown under the bus?
Lane: Soon, I'm sure.
Matt has assumed the position.
No one has spoken his name as the ReNom clearly, but all signs point to it!
Conversely.. we have happy pool boys outside... Lane's telling the guys what Britney said to him..
Lane: She said, If I find out you have another alliance besides me...
Their plan remains to put up Brendon, but tell him that he's a pawn.
Hayden: He thinks he got Matt out. The Real Brigade did. The Brigade that's 3D.
Talk turns to plans for the coming week. They *must* win HoH and PoV...
Enzo: He says if Brendon makes it to final 2, he's voting for him either way. I said Matt, if you go this week, that's your demise.
***And there we have it. Verbal confirmation.
Britney comes back outside in her bikini, and talk turns to their final 4.
Lane: I betcha out of this group right here, someone wins the 500,000, someone wins the 50,000 and someone wins the 25,000.
Lane: I cannot wait to see Brendon's face, because he thinks he's playing the whole house.
Britney: He thinks he is the Golden Power of Veto, like next year, they're gonna make the statue out of him.
Around the house...
- Outside by the pool, they're a very happy group right now.
- Brendon's in the DR.
- Matt's buried under his covers.
- Ragan's pensive in the Cabana Room
Ragan: If I can survive this week.. If I can survive the double elimination, things can change. I just have to get past Thursday.
Matt & Brendon have joined the group outside...
Ragan calls Britney inside to speak to her.
Ragan: He already knows I'm not happy with him. He's gonna know.
Britney: I know he's gonna come out and say, why did you tell Ragan that I said stuff?
Ragan: Well, you didn't tell me anything except he threw me under the bus.
Britney: Before he walked out, everybody outside was saying they can't believe he did that.
Ragan: I still like Matt, I still plan to be friends with him. I just think it's important he knows that I know he did that.
Ragan is wanting to confront Matt, and Britney wants him to keep her name out of it.
Ragan: I wont even vote for him to stay now. The difference is to say, don't put me up, put Ragan up. The line is when you say, put this person up, who is my friend. I just feel like a jackass, because I spent last week as a zombie...
Britney: I just know that when you say something to him, it's gonna come back on me.
Ragan: I'll just say "people."
Britney: All I told you was that he was trying to spare himself from the block at anyone's expense.
Ragan: I feel like a dumbass. It makes me look like an idiot. Me crying all last week?
Britney: Matt will deny it all. He's a very persuasive person. He could make murder sound appealing.
Ragan: You have no motivation to lie. He does.
Britney: The fact of the matter is, I said, I'm not gonna put up Ragan, and I got rationale to the contrary. Not only do I adore you, but you didn't even get to play for the veto. I know he's your friend, but I don't think he tried. I think he felt safe.
Talk turns to the future for both of them in the house...
Ragan steps away, Hayden passes through and Britney tells him...
Britney: He knows that Matt threw him under the bus.
***Her telling Ragan effectively destroys the befuddle Ragan factor that all the guys were counting on for the next HoH. He wont be broken up or down. From this point forward, Ragan knows he must play his own game.
Doubtless, quite aware that the morph comp will be coming soon, Ragan's already begun studying the memory wall. At the moment, he's commenting on the shapes and distinguishing features of people's eyes.
Then he moves on to teeth...
Backyard - Pool Area
Hayden, Brendon, Enzo, Britney, Matt, Lane
Chatter about calories in pickles and sodium counts in ramen... Matt joins in the chatter, after a while.
Britney: Now that I'm only one year younger than y'all, I feel like we've closed the gap.
Hayden: Is anybody here gonna get a BB12 tattoo?
Matt: I might. I'm not gonna run out to do it, but I might..
Enzo: I might get something for Gia..
Lane: How long have you been the meow meow?
Brendon: I've never heard the story.
Enzo: The real version is, I went out with a couple friends to find a train-wreck to go home with... (Helicopter noise kills it) So this girl gets in the car, and before I put the radio on, she farts in my car, and everyone was just like, wha?? And she points at me, and I look at my friends, like whatever, why would I care about farting in front of my friends, and she turns to me and goes, "Whatever. Meow, meow, meow."
Britney: So you got it from her.
Enzo: She probably doesn't even remember that she farted in my car. I think she was trying to burp or something and it just came out. I got tons of trainwreck stories.. I think that story got me in to the BB house.
While everyone else is outside, Ragan's at the dining table, having a contemplative bite.. He keeps looking out the sliding glass door, then back to the memory wall...
Ragan is there.
Matt: What's up?
Ragan: Just eatin'.
Matt: You alright?
Matt: You sure?
Ragan: Yeah. I'm gonna go listen to some music.
Matt: You sure you're alrigtht, man?
Ragan: Yeah. You ok?
Matt: I guess. I had a talk with her before, mostly about you..
Ragan: What about me?
Matt: All about our bond...
Matt waxes poetic and paints a pretty picture that doesn't include throwing Ragan under the bus, trying to get him on the block..
Matt: I was trying to sway her toward Hayden, but she kept focusing on me and you the whole time, so I could see where she was going. So that's that.
Ragan: (Exhales) I'm gonna go listen to music.
Matt: You sure you're ok?
Ragan: I'm fine.
Matt: You sure? You're being weird with me.
Ragan: Yeah, I'm fine.
**Each, "I'm fine" is more clipped than the next, making it quite clear to anyone not Matt that he's not fine.
Chow time Pool Side
They're all sharing a giant plate of appetizers, while talking about organ donors... They all agree with and support organ donation.
Talk turns to the "Bodies" exhibit, and Britney tells them it was very controversial, because the people weren't donors...
Britney: They have em in weird positions... Like a guy playing basketball... A pregnant woman, with the baby inside of her, with no skin..
Enzo: What's it called?
Britney: Bodies. It's at the South Street Seaport.
Hayden: When I saw it, it was in Vegas.
Talk progresses to...
Britney: I can't believe we haven't developed the technology to develop a fetus outside of the uterus.
Ragan comes outside to address the group... Matt is present as well. I missed the very start of the conversation, if you'd like to go back on flashback to view it in it's entirety.
Ragan: I don't say this to start up drama. I do this to clear the air...
Enzo: Well, Kathy was the swing vote.. It was tough, because I like both of em.
Hayden: We both told Matt last week what we were gonna do. I just don't get what you're saying.
Ragan: I've just heard a couple of times that I was hardcore campaigning for Matt to stay in the house last week. I had 3 conversations. When I hear hard core campaigning...
Hayden: I wouldn't say you were hard core campaigning, but you were campaigning, and I would've been upset if you weren't. I expected you to campaign for him. I think everyone expected it. I wouldn't say hardcore, because you didn't throw Lane under the bus.. You just said positive things about Matt.
Enzo: It sucks. I don't like being up against Matt.
Ragan: My aim isn't to make anyone uncomfortable..
Hayden: So you're just saying some people said you were hardcore campaigning?
Ragan: I just don't want it to get twisted in anyone's mind. I just want to make it as transparent as possible. I want what happened to be as clear as possible. I just want to make sure it's fair on all accounts.
Enzo: With me, it was just 5 minutes we talked. I'm the type of person, no one's gonna sway me. I know what I'm gonna do and who I'm voting for. Ya know?
Silence descends... Ragan goes inside.
Enzo gets up to grab some water.
Enzo: Ya gotta like Ragan though. He gets very emotional. The guy's in love with you bro.
Matt: I've been givin' it to him good all summer, but not that good.
Enzo: I think this kid's gonna move out to Chicago bro. He could be teachin' at Bradley next semester, just coincidentally...
Matt: Oh man.. So who ya think he's voting for this week?
Britney: Start working on that speech now, Enzo.
Matt: This sucks. We were supposed to take this all the way.
Enzo: It sucks. Maybe they'll give me a power.
Matt: Brigade d'etat? That's all we got.. What a load of shit. We tried. At least we know why he was pissed. She might've told him herself.
Hayden: What was that about, with Ragan?
Matt: I'm thinking Britney told him that she was putting me up because he was campaigning for me..
Hayden: I'm gonna go talk to Brit. Ragan didn't propose a final 4 deal, but he did suggest it. He said, my ideal final 4 is you, me, matt and enzo.
Matt: He told me he was gonna do that, and I asked him not to.
Hayden: I'm gonna go talk to Brit.
Matt: They might both be upstairs...
Hayden goes inside, looks through the house... Stops in Jumanji to talk with Matt...
Hayden: Do I go up and tell Britney what Ragan said, in front of Ragan?
Matt: Well, if he has nothing to hide, then I believe it. I don't see how it's a problem. For your game, it probably is a good idea.
Hayden: Then next week, if Ragan wins HoH, he'll probably put me up.
Matt: I don't know if that's true, but with who?
Hayden: When I was talking to Brit about Ragan...
Matt: Brit's such a yapper dude. You can't tell her anything without it getting out in 2 minutes...
Hayden: But if he's up there saying he didn't say it, it makes me look like a liar.
Matt: But knowing Ragan, he's probably up there owning up to it. He has no capacity to lie about anything. He just can't do it. Why would it be wrong for you to address it?
Hayden: If next week Ragan wins HoH, and I just called him out...
HoH - Britney & Ragan
Britney: But Kathy wasn't the determining vote. That was their cop out. I was the determining vote. They were gonna vote for Lane no matter what. It wasn't gonna matter who Kathy voted for. They were not gonna split that vote. It had nothing to do with Kathy... At least, that's what I believe. And that's why the conversation was what it was.. Matt told you that they had a split vote deal, and I don't know if Matt really believed that, but I knew that Matt was gonna go home, 100%, as soon as Matt got nominated. I don't think they had a split vote deal. I really don't. I felt a lot of pressure that I was the determining vote. I felt like Matt was gonna try to solicit a vote out of me, but he didn't, because he had the DPOV. And he told me that he begged you to not go around campaigning for him. That he said, please stop. Don't do it. Don't do it. And you did it anyways. Please don't tell him I said that... But that's in essence what he told you right now.
Ragan: Remember when we had the conversation that no matter what, I want you to stay, Matt said that it if it was you and Lane, basically I would be throwing my vote away, because you would be going.
Britney: When i looked at his face that day, I knew right at that minute, that I was not a part of that plan. I knew right at that minute, i owuld not be staying... WHich is why it made it hard for me this week, to try to convince you that Matt needs to go, because you all are such good friends.
Ragan: We're still good friends. I'm just mad right now.
Britney: Matt had your back in this game, Ragan, as long as it benefited Matt. Matt did not have my back in this game, at all. DO I think Matt would've sent me home before Brendon? NO. Right after Brendon? Yes.
Ragan: That's the way I feel right now. I don't know how to move forward in the game.
Britney: At least he didn't try to deny saying things about you..
Ragan: I didn't even have to confront him. Was I ok out there?
Britney: Yeah.. I just think people didn't know what to make of it. Like, who is Ragan mad at?
Ragan: What set me off was him coming in and saying, "Why should I be penalized for you campaigning for me?"
2:35pm BBT - Lane got his phone call... His mom told him that he has a huge fan base at home, and a local restaurant named a burger after him...
2:37pm BBT -
Hayden & Britney
Britney gives Hayden the scoop on Ragan/Matt...
Hayden: Oh! So he's mad at Matt. I thought he was mad at me.
Britney: Me too.
She tells Hayden the truth about what Ragan was upset about, as transcribed above.
Britney: He doesn't know that I know anything about the final 4 thing with you. It didn't make sense at all, but he's mad at Matt. He told me, Matt's not even getting his vote.
Hayden: Should I go talk to him?
Britney: He's not mad at you, at all... He just told me that you had some vote split deal?
Hayden: That's what we told Matt..
Britney: And Matt told Ragan... And that's why Ragan's convinced that you guys are in some kind of an alliance..
Hayden: Matt's playin...
Britney: omg.. And I didn't even know what Ragan was talking about.. And when he left, i thought Matt was the last person he was mad at..
Hayden: So Ragan doesn't know that I told you that stuff.
Britney: No, he doesn't know I know anything about it. I never tell anybody anything that you tell me. I'm not throwing you under the bus, ever.
Hayden: Same goes...
Hayden really feels he should go talk to Hayden, because he thinks Ragan's angry with him, still... and because he hates me and wants me to type more...
Britney: Matt essentially said to Ragan, I shouldn't be up on the block because you were campaigning for me. That's what set Ragan off. Feel free to go talk to him though.. He's upstairs cooling off.
Enzo & Matt
Britney: What are y'all conspiring about?
Enzo: We're deciding if we should throw each other under the bus this week.
Matt: We're talking about the burgers named after us.
Enzo: It's crazy that there's an outside world who knows who we are.
Matt and Enzo go into the backyard, where Lane is at the grill talking to Brendon and Matt about his phone call. He cried. He says his mom's the only person who can make him cry.
Enzo: That smells good out there.
Lane: I was like, hell with us. Our families are the ones that're getting it bad. She told me to tell everyone that the end's almost here. She said she couldn't have picked a finer group of people.. I was like, am I embarrassing y'all too much? She said to be my goofy self.
Lane goes inside. Matt & Brendon talk about how nice it must be to come from a small town like that. They're sure it's not like that in Chicago and L.A. where they're from. Enzo agrees. He's happy for Lane. They all are.
Britney & Lane
While Lane was getting his phone call, that's when Ragan came outside to give his speech. Britney starts to fill Lane in... Then Matt walks in and has a seat at the kitchen counter... and teases him a little about the food named after him..
Lane: Next time I get asked a question from Julie, I'm gonna say a Lambourghini.
Matt: How was your phone call? Well, it was nice, but it could've been better on an iphone.
Lane: The new iphone 4.
Lane leaves. Britney and Matt remain at the dining table and start talking about Ragan being upset. Lane returns. Conversation continues...
BB: Britney to DR.
Lane: I wonder if we'll get our bowl back tonight.
Britney: I'll ask about it.
Britney goes off to the DR.
Lane: SO have you talked to Ragan yet?
Matt: No. He just kinda walked away. That's weird.
Lane: So what did he start off sayin'?
Matt: He gets the feeling that people said he was hardcore campaigning.. etc...
Matt: I don't know if you guys are still thinking Brigade final 3, but if you are, I'm likely to get us there... I'm just freakin' out. I'm not gonna say anything negative about Enzo.
Lane: After this, it's final 5, then it's over with.
Matt: I know. I know.
Lane: It's gotta be people you trust.
Matt: I'm just feelin' like I've let the wife down.. It sucks.
Lane: I'll talk to Hayden and see what he's thinking.
Matt: I'm hardcore Brigade til the end. If Brendon wins next week, if I'm gone, he's doin' Britney.. I'm not saying align with him, but... I just wanna take this. I need to win this for the wifey. She needs it. Just think about it, bro.
Lane: We're not goin' through this sh*t for nothin'. Talking to my parents brought it all home for me. People think 52 days? That's not bad. They have no idea.
Matt: You think phone call from home? No big deal.
Lane: At that moment, that was bigger than half a million for me.
3:20pm BBT - Matt heads up to HoH and walks right in.
Matt: Oh, I'm sorry. You napping?
Ragan: mm hmm.
And out Matt goes... and back downstairs...
BB: Matt, please go to the Diary Room.
***If I was in the DR: So, now that you've alienated the one guy whose vote you definitely did have, what's your plan, oh great diabolical genius?
Backyard - Couch
Lane, Brendon, Enzo
Enzo: (to Lane) Did you mom mention the Meow Meow?
Brendon: (joking) Yeah, but she called you pussy.
Enzo: I am what I eat.
3:38pm BBT - As Britney sits and does her nails, calm settles upon the HGs. It will doubtless be brief, but I'm going to sit here and appreciate it, nonetheless. ;)
It's been quite an afternoon... and Matt & Ragan have yet to have their inevitable confrontation. At the moment, Ragan believes he is punishing Matt by not talking to him. Perhaps he is.
I don't see Matt going quiet into that dark night. Expect more gaming than you've ever seen from a renom for the next 60+ hours. If Matt can make it work, it'll be a miracle... especially since it's his Brigade members that pushed so hard to get him into the eviction chair.
