Hayden's Nominations

No surprise here, as it's Britney and Lane. A few minutes before the feeds went to trivia, Lane volunteered as he's safe no matter what. Plus, it takes him out of the big decision to choose between Britney and Enzo...unless he wins POV. Will he throw it?

Filler For Sunday Episode

It's clear that Big Brother producers are now struggling to fill three hours of footage per week. All of the strong personalities are gone (Rachel, Brendon, Matt), and there's only so much of Der Bergade's self-hype that can be shown. There's little to none actual game talk, which is why there was two jury house segments last night and only one showing Ragan's (producer-forced) plea to remain in the game. No wonder Wednesday's show consisted primarily of dumb punishments and the removal of Enzo's penguin costume.

This afternoon, producers were able to create Sunday's filler segment with a special competition. Each houseguest was given a coin that they had to hide. The person whose coin was found last would win $10,000. Hayden's was the first to be discovered, and the entire house was torn apart (literally) to find the others. Enzo was the next out of the competition, leaving Lane and Britney to bicker as they searched every inch of the compound. Britney finally found his, making her the winner. Everybody left in the game now has a prize, although Lane's $91.14 is more of a "dodo" award.

Big Brother, Episode 25 Recap

I really don’t have a lot to say before the beginning of tonight’s episode, as everybody knows exactly what’s going to happen. Hell, we even know what’s going to be shown in the opening segment that’s designed to raise doubt on the outcome of the eviction vote. 
The only noteworthy action we’re going to see before the HOH competition is the big reveal of the jury house, and I’m not as excited about that as most people. We know that a certain person is going to play it up to exaggerated effect, and will go through the gamut of (fake) emotions as Matt and Brendon enter the house. She’ll be beyond elated at one, and devastated at the other. (Uh oh, in the previews it appears that Matt reveals his lie. That could be good.)
So let’s begin with the predictable reactions to Lane replacing Enzo with Hayden on the block. Guess what? Hayden is pissed that for the second time Lane didn’t put up Britney. On the other hand, Princess Britney is beyond happy to make the final four. Lane just repeats what he said about five times last night - he can’t afford to lose Britney because he wants her in the final two with him.
Hayden and Enzo are sitting in the kitchen, and Enzo asks how he feels about being on the block. “Yeah, I feel great”, he says sarcastically. Enzo isn’t happy about Hayden is up, but it’s more important that he’s NOT on the block. And yes, Ragan repeats once again how he’s the lone wolf, and he’ll do anything to stay in the game. (Sigh)
Der Bergade are now in the HOH celebrating how one of the three are going to win some money…unless Britney makes it to the end. “We have to win HOH next week”, says Enzo. Good luck with that. Lane acts like he’s a bit worried, and says the reason he wants Britney in the finals with him is because she “has more enemies in the jury house than any of Der Bergade members”. The anti-Brit brigade carry on, and Lane isn’t happy with it.
Now the phony part. Ragan is a man on a (forced by BB producers) mission, and pulls Britney aside to campaign. His plan is to get Britney on his side, and then work to get Lane’s vote in a tie-breaker. He lays down his line about how she doesn’t have a chance against the boys in the finals. Even Brendon and Rachel would even vote for her over Ragan. Britney is edited to look like she‘s more interested than she really is, even in her diary room conversation. He moves on to Lane, and repeats the same scenario. (For more of these conversations, read my post from yesterday. Again, producers prodded Ragan to make this push.)
With the fake push kept to a short segment, we have an early commercial break before Julie’s conversation with the house. Ugh, we have to endure the awful “punishments” again. Yes, the house loves watching this garbage. Hayden is asked who is the worst dancer, and he admits that it’s him. “It doesn’t matter how tan I get, I’m always the whitest guy on the dance floor.” Julie moves on to Ragan and which was worse - the sock puppets or dancing. He loved both, but the dancing was the best. 
Enzo’s penguin costume is the next question, and he agrees that he’ll never live it down. She congratulates him for beating the costume curse. Britney is then asked what is the worst thing about being the only woman in the house, and she says it’s the filth. Ragan can’t believe what he’s hearing. “You’re the dirtiest!“ What a waste of time.
Now it’s time for the only juicy moments of the show. It’s jury house time! We start with Rachel lying out in the sun with an upside down book in front of her. Ok, I lied about the upside down part. Nice job on the staged shot of her “dreaming about Brendon”. Ugh! She hopes that it’s Matt who is the first person to show up at the jury house, as it “will be payback”. Instead, it’s obviously Kathy. “There’s a new sheriff in town!” She informs Rachel of the diamond power of veto. “I feel like a victim in a crime.” Double ugh!
The two of them wait for the next arrivals, and Rachel hopes it’s Britney and Ragan. “We’ll have three princesses and a queen.” Again, we get to hear the “I don’t want anybody to mess with my man” line. Matt walks in and yells “there’s too many girls in this house!” They both squeal and hug him. Kathy says he’s sad because of Matt’s wife’s disease. They’re both shocked that it was Britney who booted her. They watch the DVD of Matt’s week, and Rachel can’t believe he tossed the HOH competition. Oh Lord, another “don’t mess with my man” line. Matt has a few good one-liners, including making fun of Princess Britney’s nomination of Matt.
The second limo of the day walks in, and as we know it’s Brendon. Rachel says she “wants to be excited to see him, but I can’t.” Blah blah blah, it’s the same stuff she babbled all season. Rachel adds that his shaved head is “really hot”.
Wow, we’re getting two jury house segments…as we should, given how boring the remaining contestants are. Matt has everybody sit at the table, and reveals that the disease was not real. This does not go over well. Brendon says he’s going to hell, and Kathy goes ballistic. “There are sick people in the world, and I’m one of them…that is sick. It’s disgusting.” She gets up and walks away, saying she thought she was “going to be sick to her stomach” when she heard the news. Rachel adds that his lie makes him the “most horrible person I’ve ever met in my life right now”. Oh Lord. She also walks away, and hugs Kathy in the kitchen. 
Matt joins them in the kitchen, and Kathy and Rachel continue to gang up on him. He’s asked if he regrets the lie, and says that he regrets that it didn’t work out for him. Rachel says that he needs to immediately leave. He chuckles that he’s not going anywhere, and Kathy adds that she never “thought it would come from you”.
It’s now time for a conversation with Lane. Julie asks him about the fallout from keeping Britney safe. He doesn’t believe so, and that he did what he did to ensure her safety. He admits that it’s going to be hard to backstab Der Bergade, but the money is worth. “Britney is looking good right now.” This causes Julie to go “woah”. He is then asked if his strategy is to act stupid, and he agrees that he’s playing the “half-dodo” part. Julie then asks which Bergade member he’d take to the final two, and he says it would be Hayden. He goes on about what a great guy he is, but when pressed does smile and say he thinks he could beat him. 
Final speech time. Ragan goes first, and thanks his family and housemates. That’s really it. Hayden gets up and just says they’re all great people, and that no matter what happens they’re going to Steamboat in January. After saying hi to his family, he’s done.
Enzo is the first vote, and he obviously votes to evict Ragan…as does Britney (who suddenly claims Ragan is her “dear friend“). It’s unanimous, and exactly as expected. Ragan hugs everybody, and exposes his pit stains before heading out. After watching the final four congratulate themselves, Julie begins by asking why his “compelling” arguments to stay didn’t work. He says he didn’t realize just how close those four were, but that they made a mistake by not keeping him. He adds that these four are unlike other seasons, and that they’re “very admirable”. Um, no. Somehow he believes that if he had made it to the final four, he would have won this game. Really? How do you figure?
Julie then questions his earlier dismissal of the “group of men” alliance. His response makes no sense, so Julie moves on to whether he regrets his friendship with Matt. He says that Matt is an excellent human being, and doesn’t regret working with him at all, even though he ultimately threw him under the bus. “With Matt, I felt something close to brotherhood with him, and I wasn’t willing to throw that away for a fourth time.” As for the saboteur money, he says that while his mother would like him to pay off his student loan, he’s going to use it for either a “hybrid or a BMW”. 
This week, we get goodbye messages. Lane says that while he made a great argument to stay, he couldn’t break his loyalty to Hayden and Enzo. Britney claims she wanted to vote for him, but that since she couldn’t save him it would “ultimately hurt me in the game…I’m so sorry that you have to go to the jury house and listen to Rachel’s loud, disgusting cackle”. Enzo says that he was “too emotional”, complained too much, and “cried a lot”…yet “I’d appreciate the vote if I make the finals”. Hayden plays an ass kisser, saying that he played an awesome game, and that he’s an “awesome representative of the gay community”. Wow.
It’s HOH time, and it’s “Big Brother Christmas”, with “the goal to be the first to decorate your Christmas tree”. They have to maneuver ornaments up a fence, and the first to get the star on top of their tree is the winner. Oh boy, this is going to take awhile. Britney keeps breaking ornaments, but Hayden gets one in place before the break. 
When we return for the final segment, Enzo has three ornaments and Britney has one. But Hayden has five! “Snow” is introduced as the show thankfully fades away.
A few questions before I turn on the live feeds to watch Hayden win. Did Kathy and Rachel overreact to Matt’s big reveal? How will Ragan react to the news? Was evicting Ragan a smart move? Which Bergade member will join Britney when Hayden wins HOH?
