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.

How To Use Flashback To Watch The Big Brother Feeds

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:

1 2

3 4

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.

Nicole, Britney's (Imaginary) Arch Rival.

 

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.

Insanity

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.
