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.
So the big 'meeting' was a bust - or rather Andrew just apologized to everyone.
Then early this morning (1:30am) Andrew told Enzo that he planned to reveal a secret alliance in his speech on tonights show.
Enzo then went and told Brit, Matt, Lane and Hayden. None of them seem to guess whom it might be - but they won't be as shocked when he says something tonight.
With things a bit slow the last couple days - you might like to check out Flashback to see some things that happened earlier in the season. So I have made up a simple explanation of how to get to (and use) flashback using Real's default system. There are a few stand alone players out there that I will review in the near future as well.
First off - you need to be a subscriber - you can get a free three day trial by simply clicking on any of the links you see scattered around the site or just by clicking Here.
So assuming you have that - log in to your superperpass account via this link: http://superpass.real.com/welcome
Once you have logged, click on the Big Brother link at the top of the page. Then the following screen will show (pictures will of course look different):
On the left hand column is an option for "Flashback Season 12" (I've highlighted it in the image above).
Click on that link to get to the Flashback page where you can view the old feeds as seen below:
It should be fairly simple from then - select the date, time and camera and click "GO" and your video should start playing in the window above the calendar.
Some additional info:
One 'bug' in the new system is that the cameras do not all 'sync' up - in other words if you see something happen in the "Quad" cam and note the time - you may have to try a few minutes before or after that time on the individual cameras to see the same thing.
Another 'bug' is that the 12am-3:59am times are always a day off. To see 7/28 @ 3am you actually need to select 7/27 @3am. This is because the cameras/feeds are reset around 4am each day. (8/5/10 THIS SEEMS TO HAVE BEEN FIXED FOR MORE RECENT DAYS)
The cameras on the quad cam view are laid out as follow:
Keep that in mind if you are using the quad cam to find specific events.
With all that noted - here are some things you can go watch using flashback:
7/27/2010 3:29am Camera #1 or #2 Ragan talks to himself and us about his plans.
7/26/2010 11:15pm Camera #1 Britney talks about her imaginary nemesis Nicole quite funny.
7/26/2010 4:48pm Camera #1 Rachel is upset & talks to Brendon after the POV meeting - she reveals she didn't know what Andrew was going to say and Brendon talks about how Andrew threw the POV competition for him.
7/26/2010 1:48pm Camera #1 Hayden and Kristen kiss - the first daytime kiss I am aware of - go back a few minutes earlier for the flirting that led up to it.
7/22/2010 2:59am Camera #3 The Brigade meets after Matt has won HoH - they discuss the now foiled plan to 'back door' Brendon.
You can check out this post on BigBrotherLiveFeeds.com to see some additional time specifically related to Sundays show and see them on flashback.
So some of us have been jumping on to the Britney bandwagon as we feel the house in general has been a bit lacking so far this season (I have hopes it will improve). Britney has been much more tolerable this week with Monet gone and last night was a good example of what she brings to the feeds.
Now Britney is engaged and her fiancées name is Nick. At some point, most likely long before she entered the house, Britney created a girlfriend for Nick and last night she described some of the finer points of this person, named 'Nicole.' She was in the HoH room with Ragan, Matt and Andrew when the topic was brought up by Matt - it is very apparent that the guys have heard several "Nicole" stories but it was my first experience.
- Nicole's boobs are so small she doesn't need a bra but she wears a sports bra because she's, 'all about comfort.'
- She totally parts her hair down the center and it just lays flat on the sides because Nicole is way too cool to worry about her hair.
- Nicole Jogs... she's a 'fricken jogger'... she's a 'marathoner'... and now she's trying to get Nick into running.
- She gets spray tans even though she has a naturally dark complextion (Britney, "She's such a whore.")
- Nicole hates reality TV, she's too good for it. Ragan, relaying something Britney has apparently said in the past, explains that Nicole was however on an episode of, "Girls Gone Wild."
- Nicole used to be a bartender and has slept with like 200 guys, but she stopped when she decided it was time to get a real job as a dental hygenist.
- Nicole tries to match her scrubs to Nicks, they probably leave their house together in matching scrubs.
- Nicole drived a Jeep Liberty and its "that dark purple."
- Once a week Nicole wears a visor.
- Nicole eats pizza with beer on the weekends, then feels bad about it and throws up after.
- Nicoles favorite movie is Resident Evil.
This goes on for ten minutes or so and I can see why Britney was cast for the Big Brother House - she really can be entertaining when she wants to be. She should be staying around for a few more weeks at this point as she isn't seen as a super strong player and hasn't ruffled too many feathers since Monet left the house.
If you have the live feeds and want to see Britney talk about "Nicole" - use the flashback option and go to Camera 1 on 7/26 at 11:15pm.
It's been pretty nutty the last 24 hours. At this time last night, the seemingly general consensus was that Kathy needed to go. Besides Kathy's poor performance in every competition so far, Der Bergade's theory was that Andrew's presence would help them remain under the radar for at least another week. Yes, that unstoppable force are scared of a goofball.
Too bad Brendon and Rachel had no idea the rest of the house felt this way. They've spent so much time staring into each other's eyes that they've been paranoid that Andrew was in danger. Brendon spent much of the day conceiving a plan that would somehow ensure Andrew survived. During the veto ceremony, Andrew called Brendon out as a threat to the house and that he was going after him...just as Brendon wanted.
Unfortunately, the plan backfired as everybody saw right through it. Enzo was overheard at one point saying that he no longer cared that he was on slop as that "performance" was the highlight of his week. It also didn't help that Rachel can't act worth a shit. Although she wasn't clued in on Brendon's master plan, her overacting after it occurred did nothing but erase any doubts the rest of the house had about Andrew's actions.
The best part of this charade is that it caused a big tiff between the two not-so-bright lovebirds. Too bad it didn't last very long.
Even before all of this went down, though, Kathy was carrying on with her pleas for sympathy. She's no longer a cancer survivor; she's a cancer victim (sorry if I offend anybody with that). She's also gone on and on to many people about how she's in this game to provide for her family's future without her. Does she expect everybody to just hand her the half-million prize?
One more item of interest - Andrew apparently through the veto competition to Brendon. Now I can't wait to see Wednesday's CBS episode to verify this story.
