Big Brother, Episode 10 Recap

Big Brother fans are used to disappointment, as nothing ever lives up to the hype. THE GREATEST TWIST IN BIG BROTHER HISTORY is always a flop (ala the Saboteur), and big moves that promise to shake up the house always flounders as the person involved has second thoughts. 
Tonight, prepare to be disappointed once again. For the past two days, Andrew has promised that he will unveil secrets to the entire house tonight in the moments before voting commences. I’m not holding my breath, as he’s bound to lose his nerve once the TV cameras focus on him.
Even if he follows through on his promise, the so-called big secret about Hayden and Kristen’s relationship is pretty much known throughout the house. Kristin may freak a bit, but Hayden will just shrug his shoulders. Only Rachel is bound to truly freak out, because a). she’ll jump at the chance to hog the spotlight and b). she’s so self-absorbed she’s pretty clueless as to what’s going on outside of her sickening relationship with “Mangina” Brendon. The rest of the house will just react as they did on last night’s broadcast, when poor acting about going after Brendon and Rachel solicited nothing but eye rolls.
Speaking of Andrew’s horrific veto ceremony speech, we kick off tonight’s show with reactions from the house. Oh, who are we kidding? Only Brendon and Andrew believed it accomplished anything other than solidifying the need for him to leave. Oh, and Rachel was fooled. “I am so sick of living in a house full of haters!“ What a buffoon!
Rachel completely fell for Andrew’s speech, and doesn’t believe it when Brendon explains that it was a plan. “I feel so betrayed. Brendon’s not supposed to keep secrets from me. Who is he in a relationship with - Andrew or me?” Ugh. She’s just oh so tired of people targeting them. Whatever.
Upstairs, Matt, Lane, and Ragan are laughing about the poor acting, and Britney joins in on the fun. Rachel is so useless that they believe her over-the-top reaction meant she was in on it. Matt brings up Andrew to let him know that people didn’t believe his performance. Andrew denies that Rachel was involved in any plan, and understands he fucked up.
Back to the fighting chemists. Rachel is still pissed that Brendon was keeping secrets from her. Brendon attempts to deflect the problem by saying he loves her, but she continues on with her whining. Oh god, they’re sickening. 
Oh boy, now it’s time for the segment they sort of skipped last night. Nothing against Kathy and her struggles in life, but we’ve had to endure her story all week. She’s letting Ragan in on how she needs the money because there’s a good shot that the chemo she took for her cancer will lead to leukemia, and she needs to provide for her son. We’re led to believe that Ragan was going to keep Andrew but is changing his vote because Kathy is a “fighter”.
The storytelling continues as Kathy is now informing Kristen (actually her second conversation), and Andrew is watching from the pool table area. He’s now pissed that Kristen hasn’t said anything to him since the veto meeting. “I feel almost like an outcast or a leper.”
Wearing different clothes, we now see Andrew’s emotional reaction to what’s going on as he cries in the have-not room. He walks into the bathroom and informs Kathy and Kristen that he knows she’s “playing me like a fiddle. Don’t do it anymore.” Kristen is pissed, and follows him into the bedroom. It’s all a fight over the fact that neither of them have come to the other and talked. Silliness, and the final nail in Andrew’s eviction…especially as the rest of the house hears the fuss and listens in. 
Der Bergade is now upstairs talking about this silliness, and Matt says that he’s leaning towards keeping Andrew because he’s a bigger target than Kathy. “It’s not always about who you vote out, but who you keep in.” So we’re now supposed to believe that it could go either way.
After the break, we get Julie’s questions to the house. Rachel gets the first question, and it’s about people publicly declaring they’re targeting the two of them. Is she surprised she’s not on the blocked. She’s not just surprised, she’s “shocked”! Lane is asked what he misses the most from home, and we get the definition once again of “spotlighting”. Enzo is then asked about Britney’s jokes about his accent, and I didn’t understand a word he said in response. Please move on, Julie. The good news from the silliness is that nobody will be on slop next week.
Ooh, we get a segment with Matt’s wife. She says he “lacks all common sense”, and we see her and her friends watching Matt babbling about her having a rare bone disease. She was shocked, and doesn’t agree with him doing that. We see more footage of the lie, and she says that she doesn’t think he thought about all the repercussions. It is somewhat humorous to watch him squirm as Kathy talks about how she hates people who lie about diseases. 
After another break, we get Julie’s interview with Matt. She asks him about the phony disease, and he says that he thinks the “lie is working perfectly”. He does admit that he may have offended some people, but he’s playing to win. Der Bergade is up next, and the fact that he went against them to not nominate Brendon and Rachel. He says he has to play for himself a bit, and by saving them he gives himself an extra week. Julie then asks if there’s a “weak link” in his alliance, and he admits that Hayden’s possible relationship with Hayden makes him the weakest of the four.
So here’s the moment of truth. Will Andrew actually fulfill his promise? Kathy goes first, though, and goes on about loving everybody. She lost me after that. 
Andrew then leaps to his feet, and after saying he loves his family he goes on the attack. He says that although everybody in the house thought he was going after Brendon and Rachel (they didn’t), there’s actually a stronger relationship in the house. “It’s Kristen and Hayden, and you need help to get this relationship out. When I was in the Taj Mahal room sleeping at night, these two would get together. They were doing massages and kisses and more…you have to break two alliances in this house.” He then goes down what they have apparently said about everybody else. Wow, this is pretty good, but when he turns his attention on Kristen it goes a bit too long. Both Kristen and Hayden heckle him as Julie attempts to start the voting.
The voting begins with Kristen, and guess who she votes to evict? Yes, it’s Andrew, as does a laughing Rachel. Britney is up next, and she does the same. Andrew is seen still arguing with the second loving couple, as we go to break. Enzo is the first after the commercials, and he votes to evict Andrew, as does Brendon, Lane, Hayden, and Ragan. Yes, it is unanimous. No big surprise.
When the news is given to the house, Andrew still hugs everybody, but Hayden throws out a few shots as he walks past them. Julie says that it was the best speech she’d ever seen yet he didn‘t receive a single vote, and Andrew says that nobody “wants to make their own vote on their own”. Julie follows it up by asking why he didn’t attempt to blackmail Kristen and Hayden, and he thinks maybe that would have been a better plan. He does still think his veto ceremony plan was a good idea, and that maybe Hayden and Kristen sabotaged it. Asked what he whispered to Hayden on the way out, he says that he told Hayden he was a “good guy and you got to get away from Kristen”. Julie then asks about the phony illness, and informs him that while the disease is real “his wife is fine”. 
For the goodbye messages, Matt says that he really did plan on him just being a pawn. “It just turned out that you dug your own grave in this one”. Kristen is still pissed about their fight, and says that it shouldn’t have taken an argument for them to talk. Brendon still loves him, though. “You risked a lot just being my friend.” Ugh. Rachel, though, wasn’t sad to see him go, and for the third straight week screams about hwo nobody is going to come “between me and my man”, but adds “especially not another man. Ewww!”. She has to go next week! Hayden says nothing but nice things about his faith and integrity. Something tells me he’d have different things to say if he was to redo that now.
It’s now time for the HOH competition, and it’s a one-on-one question contest about past competitions. Britney and Hayden are up first, and Britney is eliminated. In a smart move, he chooses Brendon and Rachel to go against each other. Brendon is knocked out, but Rachel bolts before choosing the next players. Finally, she chooses Kristen and Hayden. Kristen wins this one, and picks Kathy and Rachel. Rachel wins because Kathy once again failed with an incorrect answer. She now chooses Kristen and Enzo, with Kristin winning. She then chooses Rachel and Ragan, and Rachel again wins. Lane wins this round, and goes up against Rachel for HOH. Rachel wins!!! Oh Lord, this week is going to suck!
The show is not over, though, as Julie announces that next week “Pandora’s Box” returns, with a new saboteur “unleashed” back into the game. America gets to vote on which house guest we want to have as the saboteur, and they get to win $20,000 if they succeed. Please vote for Matt!
Well, that’s it for this week. While the Andrew situation did play out as an entertaining segment, Rachel’s HOH victory ruined the entire night for me…and a good portion of the feed watchers I know…although I’m enjoying the Kirsten/Rachel fight as the show goes off the air. See you Sunday!

Andrew's Speech Is A Go.

While last night's house meeting was not what I had hoped for - with Andrew just giving a group apology - he plans to reveal Kristen and Hayden's relationship tonight on the live show.

While I would love to say the house will be "shocked," chances are they will kinda be only slightly surprised.  However it might have the intended effect of taking a bit of heat off Brendon and Rachel.

Andrew has told Enzo he plans to reveal a secret alliance tonight - and Enzo went and told half the house.  Rachel heard Hayden and Kristen kissing last night and has told Britney (who in turn told Lane at the very least).  So there is a lot of things floating around out there that may keep it from being earth shattering.  Britney was most upset because she had been telling other Hgs that she was convinced Hayden and Kristen were actually twins.

Matt's HOH Blog

Remember how I ridiculed Rachel's HOH blog last week? Her rambling and almost unreadable writings - not to mention how many times she mentioned Brendon - were close to driving me insane. Matt's HOH blog is now up and thankfully it's much more intelligible.

First of all, Matt thinks a whole lot of himself. He lets you know that in his first paragraph.

Hello America! It's your favorite guilty pleasure...the one you hate to love...the "brains" of The Brigade...the diabolical super-genius...Matt!!! 

Um Matt, I don't know about the diabolical super-genius thing.

I'm quite confident that after getting home and watching this season, I will have lost the friendships of at least half of this house. But the remainder that choose to forgive my deplorable game-character and see me for what I truly am (the greatest Big Brother player in the history of the game...yeah, I said it), I will be close to for years to come. 

He's already calling himself the greatest Big Brother player in the history of the game? Matt, let me just tell you that you're no Dr. Will.

So, as you are aware, my nominations did not exactly go as originally planned this week. Not to worry, America! The diabolical super-genius is fast at work rectifying the situation! It's great to watch Andrew go completely mental, and in hindsight I think this is all going to work out BETTER for me than if the plan to backdoor Brendan went through as it was originally supposed to. At this point in time I feel completely safe next week, and I think the house still thinks I'm a total nitwit. Perfect on all accounts! 

Matt, let's just say that you got a little lucky this week. If it weren't for Andrew screwing his game over with that ridiculous POV speech, you'd have The Amazingly Horizontal Kathy going home. And I wouldn't consider her eviction from the house earth-shattering.

The rest of his blog thanks his wife for sticking by his side through the whole disease lie and how much The Brigade is running the show. Personally, it seems to me that Brendon and Rachel are running the show Matt. Many of you have made them Enemy #1 but can't seem to get rid of them no matter how hard you try. Concentrating on them so much has left a lot of people floating around just waiting.

So what do you think of Matt's HOH blog? Did he come across as pompous or just confident? Are you glad he at least knows how to write comprehensibly?

And because it's Thursday, who do you want to win the HOH tonight?

Big Brother, Episode 9 Recap

I’m half-tempted to just forget about tonight’s episode until the last ten minutes, as there is bound to be lots and lots of filler tonight. The only real excitement promises to be the veto ceremony, as Andrew apparently made a scene that not has affected the game play of a few but could possibly finally lead to the breakup of America’s Worst Couple.
But I’m a soldier, though, so I’ll guide you through the entire sixty minutes…starting with the reactions to Matt’s nominations of Andrew and Kathy. (Interesting how even in the recaps, Matt, the “self-proclaimed genius” gets a bad edit.) Rachel can’t believe her and Brendon weren’t nominated, but still worries that they may be backdoored. Although he was told he’s just a pawn, Andrew is still worried. Hayden, meanwhile, is pissed that “two floaters” were nominated. “I don’t know what he’s doing. We were hoping for a power move.” Kathy is also confused, but that’s typical. Matt offers no apologies, as “this is MY HOH, and I don’t really care what they think…if the opportunity presents itself to backdoor Brendon, MAYBE I’ll take that opportunity. Maybe I won’t.”
Andrew is then seen walking into the have-not room, mumbling “it’s stupid” over and over. At the same time, the loving acoustic guitar Muzak comes on as the lovebirds maul each other. “I thought we were seriously going to go up”, says Rachel. Andrew then does what he does best - walk in on those morons. Rachel apologizes to him for being nominated, and Brendon lets him know that he’s not going home after Andrew complains that he has no clue what’s going on in the house. 
Kathy then asks Matt if they can chat. They head into the HOH, and she says that she’s not gunning for him. He tells her that he wished he had known that when she voted against him, and that she needs to win POV. He adds that he’s not going to tell the house how he wants them to vote. In the diary room, Matt says he doesn’t “believe a word that’s coming out of her mouth”. 
Hayden and Kristen then walk into Andrew’s bedroom, and he complains again about being nominated. Kristen says she thought for sure it was going to be Brendon and Rachel. Hayden says that he was “absolutely shocked”, and in the diary room he says if he wins POV he’d take down Andrew so that Brendon or Rachel could be put up. Once Andrew leaves, they begin their makeout session.
We move on to a kitchen scene, and Andrew complaining about peaches being added to the iced tea (making it ineligible for the have-nots to drink). He wanders around the house “aaaaaahing”, so Kathy goes to see what’s wrong. He complains that everything Rachel does somehow affects him. “Some people only care about themselves”, says Kathy. Andrew responds that Brendon is too good of a kid for that wench. “It’s unbelievable the idiocracy that is in this house.” 
Der Bergade are now sitting outside, and Hayden asks about backdooring Brendon or Rachel. Matt responds that he’s open to ideas, and adds that it’s pretty obvious what’s going on. Der Bergade all agree that it would be ‘awesome” if they were all picked to play in the veto competition. (Oooh, a bit of foreshadowing here.) “One of them is going home this week.” Um, yeah.
After a commercial break, it’s filler time. Andrew is vacuuming again, and he babbles about how “cleanliness is next to godliness”. Various shots are shown of him cleaning, and they all make silly comments. ZZZZZZ.
Finally, something important happens, as Matt walks out with the veto competition bag. Yes, they all want to win it. Matt picks out Brendon’s name, and is obviously not pleased. Kathy pulls out Lane’s name, and Andrew gets Rachel. Der Bergade is NOT pleased! Neither is Andrew! “I thought God loved me!” Matt chooses Enzo to be the host.
Before the competition, we have to hear the whining. Funny how the conspiracy theories aren’t shown as Lane and Matt bitch. Instead, we get to hear Lane loudly chew on pop rocks. “Green apple is good.” Ugh!
Matt is then shown in the storage room with Andrew, telling him that they still plan on saving him. Andrew doesn’t quite buy it, though. “Your plan is blowing up in my face”, he complains in the diary room. As expected, though, they don’t show Andrew promising to Brendon that he’d throw the competition to him.
Ugh, more Der Bergade garbage, as Enzo now joins Matt and Lane in the HOH. They’re worried that the veto competition will be a test on the elements. They then watch Andrew on the spy cams and make a few jokes. Lame didn’t know that Jews wore “ninja outfits”. Oh, Lane. 
And it’s time for more filler, as Der Bergade is now sitting with Brendon listening to Lane talk about opening a drive-in Beer store, and some nonsense about life with guns in Texas. Enough with the hayseed Lane segments!
Yay, we finally get the veto competition, as Enzo walks into the living room in a genie costume. They have to wander around the backyard looking at all of the items, which Lane described as a “smarter version of a redneck carnival in Texas”. Oh, Lane. Andrew thinks he has it figured it out, but Kathy says the only numbers she ever sees are on license plates. Britney tells Matt to count the candles, but he says he has a “rain man” problem with counting. 
The game finally actually starts, with Enzo asking questions about the items. It’s one of those games where after they write down an answer, they can decide to stay or fold. If you stay and lose, you’re eliminated, and the first one to three wins. Once we get diary room clips from everybody stating they HAVE to win, we finally get on with it.
The first question is about the number of fortune cookies, and Lame says his strategy is to just put down a reasonable number and then decide whether to stay or fold. You think? Brendon folds, as does Andrew, Kathy, and Rachel. There goes one member of Der Bergade, as Lame is the first out.
Candles are the topic of the next question, and after hearing Rachel’s strategy Brendon and Kathy fold. Andrew wins this point, and Matt is out. There goes Der Bergade. The third question is about how many feet are in a spiral, and Kathy gives us some idiotic story about a snake that got caught in her car. Andrew and Rachel fold, and Brendon wins this round. It’s now Brendon, Rachel, and Andrew!
Tarot cards are the fourth question, and Brendon and Rachel both fold. Andrew now has two points to Brendon’s one (and Rachel with zero). Der Bergade is now happy again! Next up is the ounces of magic potion in a bowl, and Rachel and Andrew fold. Now it’s a tie game!
The eyeballs come into play now, and they all stay this time. The winner is…the CBS sponsors.
Ok, back with the results. My God, they’re milking an uninteresting game. As you may guess, Brendon wins this point, and the veto. Yes, that means that neither Brendon and Rachel are going home this week. Ugh, Brendon, did you really just use the term “Brenchel”? You should be evicted just for that!
Der Bergade are clearly not happy, and Matt tells Hayden they need to come up with a plan B. Um, too late for that, my friend. Hayden’s pissed! “This is a nightmare, dude. We’re screwed!” 
As we see after all competitions, it’s time for Rachel to again attack Brendon. After their dry-humping, Brendon whispers that Andrew HAS to stay. Ugh, and more of their overly-noise kisses! Andrew pounds on the wall for them to quiet down. Lol
Der Bergade are still whining, and it’s Enzo’s time to complain about Matt’s decision to not put up Brendon and Rachel. Matt then brings in Andrew, and Matt says that he thinks he has the votes. Matt does add that he hopes the vote ends up a tie, so he can prove he’s on his side. Andrew is still pissed by Matt’s plan, though, but Matt says it was never his goal to give the boot to either him or Kathy.  Andrew doesn’t want Matt to help him, though, because he can do it himself. Oh yeah?
We’re about to see just how well Andrew can take care of himself, though, as it’s time for otherwise useless veto ceremony. Andrew corners Brendon in the have-not room, and tells him he wants to put on a show at the meeting to “prove” they’re not together. Brendon says in the diary room that he’s nervous about this, as it could backfire on him.
And it’s veto ceremony time. We still have to watch Brendon go through the motions of staring at the wall, even though we know exactly what’s going to happen. Blah blah Brendon, blah blah Kathy, blah blah Andrew.
Kathy gets to speak first, and doesn’t say much (as usual) because she knows he doesn’t want to endanger Rachel. Andrew then gets up, and stumbles as he recounts how Brendon and Rachel nominated Matt but didn’t vote to evict, and then Matt didn’t even nominate them. He then informs Brendon and Rachel that he’s going after them…while the rest of the house basically shrugs their shoulders. 
Obviously, Brendon doesn’t use the veto…no matter how long the pause lasted. Andrew thinks his speech helped the house believe he’s going after them. Kathy says that she asked for a miracle, and Andrew’s speech did just that. Britney’s only appearance in the show is as hilarious as usual, as she laughs at Andrew’s performance. “Am I in the Twilight Zone? What just happened?”
Poor, clueless Rachel is pissed, as Brendon didn‘t pass on this plan to her. “I have no idea that Andrew wanted to come after us, and is such a hater. I. Was. Shocked!” Brendon is proud of Andrew’s move, though, although Matt responds that it was a complete joke.
And with that idiocy, the show concludes. See you tomorrow when our favorite OCD victim leaves Big Brother!

Some Excitement On The Feeds - One House Guest In Tears.

So we had some action today - and hopefully will have some more later on. 

Being as I have tweeted (BBGossip) and posted about it on ilovereality.com - I am just going to do what someone requested after my flashback tutorial.  Here are the highlights with the time "links" to the actual video.

9:45am Camera 3: Andrew confronts Kristen and Kathy and tells them to 'stop playing me like a fiddle." Implying that the two of them are aligned (Kristen has been telling him she was going to vote out Kathy).

10:11am Camera 3 or 4: Voices are raised as Kristen is really ticked off at Andrew for calling her out 'in public' and that she had told him she would be comforting Kathy a lot this week.  Andrew says he knows he is going but Kristen better watch her back.

10:15am Camera 1 or 2: Andrew in the "Have Not" room in tears. 

11:00am Camera 1 or 2: Andrew is Still in tears.

11:21am Camera 1 or 2: Andrew talking to Ragan.  Asks Ragan what would he do if he knew about one of his friends being cheated on.  Would he expose it?  He would (watch it to see the exact phrasing).

11:45am Camera 2: Andrew meets with Brendon in the "Cabana" room and in a round about way tells Brendon he is going to help Brendon and Rachel by messing up things for Kristen and Hayden.  This was in super secret whisper mode that you need headphones to hear.

So it looks like Andrew felt out Ragan and got the answer he wanted.  In Andrews mind Kristen is cheating on her 'boyfriend' (of a couple weeks before the show) with Hayden.  By exposing this relationship to the house Rachel and Brendon will be seen as less of a threat and the target may shift to this newly reealed 'alliance.'  I have no clue how Andrew thinks it might save him - but I can see how it might help Rachel and Brendon a bit.

I'm not sure if Andrew plans to do this today - or tomorrow - he has discussed calling a meeting - but in his convo with Brendon he mentioned doing something tomorrow night.
