Today I cheer. Today I wear a party hat. Today marks the anniversary of the birth of one of my all time favorite pushovers/houseguests.
Now, to some of you this man was an annoyance and somewhat of a "Neanderthal/tal". But for me, he was all that and more.
Brendon is a star. From his first week as a houseguest on BB12 he was smitten by our girl Rachel Reilly. They were a perfect match. THEY WERE BOTH SCIENTISTS FOR FUCKS SAKE! *Insert the photoshop I have in my head of their faces on Bunsen and Beaker*
"No one get's between me and my man," says Rachel ad nauseum. Don't sweat it Rach, we didn't want to. Brendon is just fine on the eyes. But every time he opens his mouth I just wanted to pet him on the head softly and tell him it was gonna be okay. He was a puppy dog and she was an alpha. It worked.
Season 12 ends with Brendon placing sixth. Higher then I would have expected. He's got his gal though, so he has already won..... I guess.
Season 13 comes around "Brenchel" is back. He ended up being evicted day 34 and we all thought Rachel would collapse. Instead she took it to the limit and won the whole thing.
Can you IMAGINE the earful he is getting here?
No time was wasted and he was racing around the world on The Amazing Race where we got this gem:
Oh Brendon, I wish you the happiest Birthday.
