Unnecessary Deals

We're minutes away from nominations, and Brendon is cutting a deal with Hayden. As expected, the plan is to put up Britney and Monet, and for some reason Brendon wants a commitment to go next go after the one of that pair who doesn't go home this week.

It's just silly for multiple reasons. One, he doesn't need to cut a deal with somebody who knows he wasn't intended to go up. Two, Brendon keeps going on and on about establishing trust with Hayden, but unlike Rachel he does remember last week. Hayden has no loyalty to Brendon, and never will...especially as Brendon keeps acting like a tough mastermind.

BTW, Rachel is in the room during this discussion but I have yet to hear her say a word. Oh wait, she just spoke. 

One more note. Brendon keeps babbling about eliminating the weak players. Please scroll down to a post I made last night about the idiocy of this strategy. Get rid of those you believe have a chance on winning. Not only will you then have an easier road to the finals, you're not going to end up losing to somebody who has the sympathy of the entire jury.

I should probably also include the results of the Have/Have Not competition - Monet, Britney, Enzo, and Brendon are have-nots. Looks like Brendon will have to leave Rachel to sleep in their combined messes after their late night couplings.

Love Is In The Air

Things have become a little crazy in the Big Brother house haven't they? While Rachel isn't exactly the person I wanted to become the new HOH, it's great for drama. She went from being on the block and being a Have Not to the Head of Household and being able to eat. So for Rachel, she's going to be having the best week ever.

Part of the reason for that is she's going to be able to nominate the two women who she doesn't like. (I didn't say brains came with the HOH power.) Within an hour of the feeds coming back on after the show last night, she'd already told Brendon that she's going to be nominating Britney and Monet with Monet her primary target for eviction. Matt's going to be in trouble if either one of these are taken off the block as Rachel told Brendon that he's her replacement choice.

I'm still not exactly sure why she dislikes Monet so much but it stems from something that happened between the two of them before the live feeds began. We've heard Monet complain over and over again about how Rachel rolled her eyes when Rachel pulled Monet's name from the bag for the POV competition. (If you were watching closely on Wednesday's POV show, it was a huge eye roll.) Monet never talked about anything that she thought she might have done to Rachel to cause the dischord between them so perhaps Monet has no idea what she did either.

Heaven help you if you were watching Rachel last night on the feeds or on Big Brother After Dark! She received a bottle of Patron tequila in her HOH basket in addition to the other goodies. Rachel went on and on and on and on about how she can't believe Big Brother gave her tequila. Well duh Rachel! Big Brother wants you and Brendon to get hammered so y'all have good sloppy sex in the HOH room. They need footage for the showmance script er storyline. Fortunately for my eyes, there was no Brenchel sex last night. They just took shots and she got hammered is all.

Speaking of sex though, there's another couple in the house! No, I'm not talking about the fish. Late late last night, Kristen and Hayden spent hours awkwardly flirting and eventually spooning in bed. There was no kissy kissy going on but I see it heading that way eventually. They were situated in the double bed in the orange room (poor Andrew will never get any sleep) before she decided to get up and go to her own bed. It will be interesting to watch this romance blossom - unlike the icky partnering between Brendon and Rachel.

In some miscellaneous news, the sound makers were found in the house by Monet and others so they were able to sleep in peace last night. Britney got pissed at Andrew for being happy that Rachel won HOH. She expressed her displeasure at his happiness and Andrew basically told her to shut the fuck up. You go boy! Monet immediately told Andrew that she had nothing to do with Britney's little episode in hopes of getting on his good side. Monet and Britney are pretty sure they're in danger of being nominated so it won't be a surprise to them when it happens later today. 

Well, the hamsters have been awakened from their slumber. The Have-Have Nots competition will be held today and then the nomination ceremony will be later. Also, at some point today, the hamsters will probably be told who the saboteur is/was for Sunday's show. While you're waiting for all of the events check out Julie's extended interview with Annie right here and Annie's Early Show interview here.

So what are your thoughts on all of the love in the house? Do you think Rachel would be making the right or wrong decision nominating Britney and Monet? Who would you nominate if you were Rachel? Spill it folks!

Lack of Strategy

Every year, I hope that we get a few intelligent people that understand the basic principles of taking yourself to the finals. It's not just about your own performance in competitions, but who you decide should be eliminated as quickly as possible. At the same time, if you consider yourself a strong player, you should expect to be targeted at all times.

 

Yet that's what we rarely see every single year. The weakest players are picked off one by one, leaving most of the more athletic and/or most intelligent people in the final weeks (with one floater somehow coasting through). Those that believe themselves to be perfect specimens somehow also believe that they have a God-given right to just coast to the final week of the show (ala Jessie).

 

This is just idiotic, and we're seeing it play out once again. Last week, Hayden did make a smart move in putting up Brendon, but he should have paired him with somebody besides Rachel. Of course, he was a bit hamstrung as he aligned himself with all of the house's meatheads. 

 

An hour after her surprising victory, Rachel appears to be the next to make a fatal mistake. She has a great opportunity to take out one of The Brigade. Instead, she's going to play the catty game of targeting two silly twits who don't have a chance in hell of winning. Both Britney and Monet are due to leave anytime soon. Now is not the time.

Big Brother, Episode 4 Recap

 Welcome to the recap of the first live show of the season. Besides a live eviction and a new HOH competition, there is also the revealing of the over-hyped “saboteur”…an event destined to be anti-climatic.
So who is going home tonight? Will it be the supposed chemist, Rachel? Or bipolar, bisexual Annie? I predict that it will be Annie. Yes, everybody has at one point claimed they MAY vote to boot Rachel, but in almost every instance they were half-hearted agreements designed primarily to stop the flow of garbage coming out of her mouth.
As always, the broadcast commences with a recap that seems even longer than mine. Really, do we have to tell the whole story of the season so far? Even if it’s only been seven days? Julie is just going to repeat the major parts of it immediately after the narration is completed.
Before we get to the good stuff, however, we have a few minutes to show the reaction to Hayden’s decision to put up Annie as a replacement for POV winner Brendon. Britney, of course, is pissed that Annie babbled some nonsense about her as she took Brendon’s place in the nomination chair. “She’s a total psycopath. She’s not all here. She’s not playing with a full deck of cards.” Hayden babbles about fulfilling what The Brigade want, and Rachel says she’s sad that Annie is now nominated. Of course, though, it’s more about the excitement of getting more time with Brendon. 
Outside, Andrew tells Annie he’s always around to talk, which sets Annie off about Britney. She wanders back in, saying “fuck you, Britney”. Meanwhile, the lovebirds console each other in the only way they know how…but this time with clothes on. Britney has already told her about how Annie is acting, so she believes all she has to do to survive is lay low. 
Annie catches them as they walk out of the bedroom, and tells them to have fun next week. Brendon walks into the other bedroom to attempt to console her, which doesn’t work. Annie adds in the diary room that she feels betrayed that Brendon isn’t doing anything to help her. In full view of the rest of the house, she blurts out “I guess our alliance is over, Brendon. Boo. I‘m so glad we had one.” 
Brendon now heads outside to apologize to Britney, and fills her in on the “alliance is off” comment. Meanwhile, The Brigade are proud of their work. Matt says they’re “running the house”. Um, ok. “Nothing beats the brigade”, Enzo tells Matt.
Annie now wants to talk to Brendon again. “He’s my safe haven here.” She says she knows that there’s no way Brendon will vote for her, and Brendon attempts to avoid an answer. “No matter what I say you’re still going to vote for her.” Brendon says that he was hurt by what she had said, but Annie said it was just sarcastic. The sad music comes up as Annie tears up. Oh, boo hoo. Brendon gives her a little bit of the Rachel touch by hugging her, but it doesn’t help.
Done with the psycopath, Brendon goes back to his girl. She completely straddles in, but Brendon ruins the moment by informing her about his conversation with Annie. “Why the heck is he talking about Annie?” She’s pissed that it’s not all about her, which makes poor Brendon sad. Ugh.
Before commercials, Julie reveals that the biggest vote-getter in the question about the identity of the saboteur is Kathy. Could it possibly be her? I still say no.
We return to Julie, and she reveals the saboteur to be…Annie??? She introduces a package of her sabotage activities. I guess nobody could really be as psycho as she has acted this week. Too bad she’s not going to collect her fifty grand, and CBS is not going to get their five weeks of shenanigans. Or are they???
Wow, they just showed some footage that we haven’t seen on the live feed. The computerized saboteur came on and claimed that their identity is not one of those up for eviction. Enzo says that he really thought it was Annie, and they all continue to babble about it. More people now believe it’s Brendon because the wording was “escaped the block”. Annie claims that the message has helped her. Um, no, it hasn’t.
In the HOH, Andrew is talking to Hayden about how it HAS to be Brendon, and that it would be better after all to break up the relationship. Hayden says he’s contemplating this idea. Meanwhile, Annie is babbling away about how stupid it is to keep the house’s strongest alliance. She lets them know that Brendon is lying about being a swim coach. Monet says it’s a “huge red flag”, and Enzo reminds them that he was away from the couch when the lights went out. Annie continues babbling, saying she’ll kiss anybody’s ass to stay. In the diary room, she says she’s keeping her fingers crossed that she’ll survive the week.
When we return, it’s time for Julie to ask insipid questions to the house. The first question goes to Enzo, and she wants to know how slop compares to Mom’s home cooking. “Slop is like an ex-girlfriend. I want nothing to do with it.” Um, ok. They then show clips from the POV competition, and Brendon’s problem with his shorts. She moves on to the showmance (of course). “What is it that attracts you?” He goes on and on about her attributes…well, all except for the obvious pair. Julie then asks Andrew which saboteur message surprised him the most. He says it was the friendship question.
It’s now time for the final speeches. Annie goes first, and babbles about being thrilled to meet everybody. She says that while she won’t say anything bad about Rachel, she does have an advantage in having Brendon. “Brendon will take her through this game, just like Jeff did with Jordan. He has lied to me…he lied about his occupation to all of you. He lied to you about what he told me in the room earlier, and I really thought you were my friend. Unfortunately, I just don’t think you are.”
After being cut off, Rachel then gets up and babbles about how she loves everybody. Ugh, I hate her singsong voice. She really doesn’t say anything to make her case, but she does almost show her you-know-what. That’s enough for my vote.
So the voting begins with Monet, who votes to eliminate Annie. Andrew does the same, as does Lane, After a commercial break, the voting continues with everybody else voting to evict Annie. Since it’s a live vote, it does become a bit tedious for all 10 people to go through the motions. 
When Julie announces the vote, Annie quickly grabs her stuff and hugs a few people before heading out. Oh god, she’s wearing those awful shoes she’s worn every night this week. Julie begins the interview with letting her know that the viewers know the big secret. She asks her what she did wrong, and she rightfully admits that it was wrong to “play twice the game in half the time”, and that if the real Annie had gone in she would have been more successful. Julie then asks about sticking with Brendon and Rachel after nominations, and she responds that she thought it was a good move at the time. She also says that everything she said in her nomination speech was true, and that they were stupid in keeping the couple together. Julie then informs her that America thought that Kathy was the saboteur, which makes Annie laugh and explain that she’s a bit cuckoo. Um, but that’s what we thought of you! (Actually, I think I like the real Annie.) Annie does honestly believe that Brendon is the strongest player in the house.
In the final speeches, Hayden says that he thinks she’s great but she causes a lot of drama. Britney gets catty, and says “as a friend” she has to let her know that those “ill-fitting flats have got to go..and toss the eye shadow while you’re at it”. Oh Lord. Ragan says that he thinks she’s actually the saboteur, while Brendon claims that he really wanted her to stay. “I never wanted to choose between  you and Rachel”. Meanwhile, Rachel is also catty, complaining how she couldn’t believe she’d attempt to “come between my man and me. Like he would ever pick you over me.” I’m laughing as hard as Annie is watching that display. Annie gets so fired up she almost pulls a Rachel in her short skirt. She responds that Brendon originally attempted to hit on her, and 24 hours later settled for Rachel. “She should really be proud of herself that she got my sloppy seconds.” I do like this Annie!!! We leave Annie with her claiming that she has left behind one more act of sabotage.
With the drama now over, it’s time for the HOH competition. Wow, we all thought it would be a golf game, but instead it’s a “A/B” question game about the house guests. Brendon, Kathy, and Kristen are out on the first question, while Enzo, Matt, and Lane are out on the second one. They all pick the same person for the third question, as they all do on the next two questions. For the sixth question, Andrew is eliminated. Britney is getting fired up, and she does survive the next question. Ragan is now out. It’s now tie-breaker time, and the question is how many gallons of caramel was used in the veto competition. This should be good. Britney picks 41, Rachel guesses 80, while Monet picked 725. Rachel is the new HOH!!!! Oh boy, the majority of the house is not going to like that, but late-night viewers wanting sex sure will!
And that’s it for a pretty exciting night of Big Brother. See you Sunday!!!

HOH Lockdown

I wish BB happened in one room for a season.  This is what it would look like.

Lockdown just finished. The two love birds on the left could not stop rubbing up on each other.  We get it.  WE GET ITTTTTTTTTTT.


 

Update: They still won't stop touching each other.  FOR GOD'S SAKE.  He's trying to get her to move near him.  He even said that he "might be falling in love with her".  This is going to be disastrous..I CAN'T WAIT!
