Sweet Andrew

While we wait to find out the results of the luxury competition going on right now, check out Julie Chen's extended interview with Andrew.

He's a really sweet guy and I felt for him a couple of times watching it. Good luck to you Andrew!

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?

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.

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.

The Brigade

MattSee that guy over there to the right? Yeah, that's Matt. Remember who the HOH is?  It's Hayden - that hunky hunk of a man I seriously drooled over pre-season.  They're two of the four members of The Brigade.  Lane, the mini chunkster from Texas, makes up the third member and Enzo, the overly paranoid Jersey boy, rounds out the group.

This all-male self-named alliance seems to have things all figured out for the next few weeks.  The original plan was to get rid of Brendon but since Brendon won the POV, they had to come up with a new one.  Originally, they were just going to work on getting rid of Rachel (the other nominee) by putting Kathy up as a pawn.  Hayden though wasn't really comfortable with the plan and has decided to backdoor somebody instead.

Enter Annie.  The overly matted makeup one has been getting around the house and people have taken notice - especially The Brigade.  They're not comfortable watching her buzzing around the house and getting up in everybody's business.  They have every right to be worried too.  Annie's playing the game hard and obvious.  If I had to pick who I would compare her to from other seasons I'd say she was a cross between Brian (remember him?) and Ronnie.  Yes, that Ronnie.

Brendon, Rachel, Britney, and Monet all know about the plan are onboard with it.  Remember that this week it takes six votes to evict somebody (or five votes and Hayden's tiebreaker vote).  Rachel has promised Hayden safety until Week 7 if she stays this week.  So that combined with the uneasiness many feel towards Annie (some thinks she's the saboteur as well) makes it seem likely that Annie will be put up in Brendon's place (he won POV remember) and voted out on Thursday's live show.  But remember, things could change at the drop of a dime.

Britney told Annie about the plan late last night and Annie got upset about it.  Annie blamed her tears on half of her family not signing waivers so that she could discuss them on the feeds but it was really the shock of finding out she's being targeted so early on in the game.  She also blamed her tears on PMS but whatever.

In other news, Andrew is becoming more human.  He actually had a decent talk with Hayden up in the HOH room yesterday but Hayden was only pretending to listen.  However, Hayden did tell Andrew how upset Angie was at the head in the crotch under the blanket incident and how she's been running all over the house talking about it ever since.  Hayden told Andrew that he should apologize to her and try to clear the air.  Andrew did later apologize to Annie and she accepted his apology.  I wasn't feelin' it though.  Especially when she later ran around to everybody exaggerating the whole apology as a confrontation instead.

Andrew also opened up about his Judaism practices and the Sabbath in the cabana room to a crowd of about six.  There were a lot of good questions from people about what he can and can't do.  Annie (yes, her again) and Enzo were pretty antagonistic about their questions though.  Andrew could have become very defensive about it but was very cool-headed and good-natured towards them.

And now for some miscellany.  Rachel talked about her first kiss with Brendon to Matt and Britney.  Matt created the term 'Brenchel' for them (gag me already!).  Monet and Britney are becoming quite the catty queens with Kathy as their sickly sidekick.  Perk up Kathy, you're sooo freaking boring!  Enzo is going to give himself a heart attack (and others) with his constant pacing and paranoia.  Hayden, Lane, and Annie had some new clothes delivered to them by Big Brother as some of the stuff they'd brought with them were not acceptable for the camera (blacks, whites, patterns, stripes, logos, etc).  Hayden told Kristen about the backdoor Annie plan (even though he told his fellow Brigade members he wouldn't) super late last night.  But that's because Hayden has a bit of a crush on Kristen.  hehe

Well the hamsters are getting up and beginning to move about for the day so it's time for me to go for now.  What do you think about The Brigade and their plan to backdoor Annie?  Have your opinions changed on any of the hamsters between yesterday morning and now?  Let us know in the comments!

Meet The New Hamsters Of Big Brother 12 - Part 1

AndrewToday was the day that we finally laid our lovely little eyes on the new litter of hamsters (or houseguests) that will make up our summer of guilty pleasure called Big Brother 12.  Some folks on Twitter compared today to Christmas.  I don't know about all that.  For me, it's better than Christmas!

As we really don't know these folks much better than our ex's boss' daughter-in-law married to the beekeeper a few towns over, let me provide you my completely unbiased opinions based on a snap judgment of their bios at the CBS web site.  If you'd like to follow along and compare your snap judgments with mine, you can check out their bios right here.

Oh Andrew.  He does try a bit too hard with his bio but I have to give him some credit for not being plain.  Andrew seems like he could be a fun guy to be around but seems to be a little bit too much full of himself.  But hey, you kinda have to to be on Big Brother right?  He is a practicing Orthodox Jew so I'm interested in seeing how far he goes in the game.  I think just because of that he won't last very long.  I'm not saying it's fair but I'm just sayin'.  

It's also interesting that he lists both his favorite and least favorite players of Big Brother as being from BB5 (Marvin and Holly respectively).  Yet he says he thinks the perfect strategy of winning is to combine Dr. Will, Kaysar, Chicken George, and Russell (from Survivor).   Did he just really love BB5 that much?  Marvin was a great guy and Holly was annoying but I could think of many more hamsters that a person would list as favorite and least favorite.  I am interested in seeing how he'll do as a single father though and how being away from his child (children?) will affect him.

AnnieI don't really know what to think about Annie.  She seems to have a rather brash personality and it sounds like she doesn't give two craps what others think about her.  That's all fine and good in real life but that doesn't always play out too well in the Big Brother house.

For some reason, I think of Ivette (BB6) when I read her profile.  And no, it has nothing to do with her being bisexual.  When asked for three adjectives to describe herself, she provides "Outgoing, over dramatic and loyal."  Unlike Ivette, she doesn't seem to have any drive.  Her life's motto is, "When life give you lemons... say f*** the lemons and bail."  What a great philosophy to have! *rolls eyes*  OK chick who likes Dick (BB8) and is afraid of getting old.  Whatever!

BrendonBrendon sounds as boring as... well I can't think of anything that boring yet.  So I made his picture really small instead.  Yeah, he may be smart and even kinda hunky-looking but he may as well have said that he likes horse-riding and long walks on the beach.  The only interesting 'BB thing' about him is that he plans on getting the girls to like him and then turn them against each other.  He might have a problem with that if he's as boring in real life as his bio is.

BritneyThis next hamster does actually list that she likes taking walks - but with her dog.  Britney is all set to be the buxom blonde of BB12.  She's young, perky, in sales, and has big boobs.  Britney also likes arguing so much she listed it as one of her favorite activities (I wonder what her dog thinks about that) and listed one of her adjectives as argumentative.  Yet she considers herself a bit of a comic.  I don't know about this one folks!  I think we're either going to love her or hate her!  But I can't wait to watch her carry out her strategy of being nice.  LOL!

EnzoEnzo seems interesting in a train wreck kinda way.  His favorite hamster is the knife-wielding Justin from BB2.  Now I don't know if it's because he's from the same town as Justin or if he knows Justin in real life or if he gets off on knife-play or if he's just an idiot.  The idiot part might very well be true since he listed his strategy for winning Big Brother as 'winning'.  Dude, that's not a strategy.  That's an end result.  Perhaps he's just trying to make Justin look smart.  Who knows?

He does describe himself as likeable and obnoxious.  Enzo doesn't like rats, already considers himself a celebrity, and is most proud of receiving his real estate license.  I don't know about you but I foresee him being most proud of his tan in the near future.

HaydenAh Hayden.  Our young moppy-headed hunk of the season.  Our easy breezy beautiful cover boy of the season.  Our fun-loving and down-to-earth hunk of manly man of the season.  OK, I'm embarrassing myself.

Let's just say I already think he's the bee's knees and I definitely will not mind watching him catch those golden rays of sun as they shine down on his oh-so-toned body.  Ahem.  Sorry again.

On to his bio already HamsterDame!  He considers himself outgoing, athletic, and charming and loves sports.  Hayden's proudest accomplishment to date is being a part of the Arizona State University's baseball team.  He's afraid to fly, dislikes messy people, and is a country boy.

Yes his bio might be a little bit 'youthful' but I'm not arguing.  He is cute and I just hope he has something to bring to the table other than looks so that he sticks around for awhile.

So those are my thoughts on the first six hamsters.  I'm sure I will be amazingly wrong on at least more than one (haha!) but that's why they're called snap judgments!  How do you feel about this group of six?  Just click on that little 'Post a Comment' link below and type away!

Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow morning.  You won't want to miss it!

Meet the new Big Brother House Guests! House Details.

Here is the video from today's Early Show!  I haven't really been able to watch it myself I was in such a rush to post it.

The 13 HGs names (where is #14? AHHH 14 bailed during sequester - story here): Rachel, Kristen, Britney, Monet, Hayden, Brendon, Andrew, Enzo, Kathy, Annie, Matt, Lane, & Ragan

 

Second Video provided directly by CBS:

So there are the HGs - also revealed today is MORE house details.   From what I have read you might as well forget my other post which was based on an 'anonymous' poster - sounds like this person was jst making stuff up, my bad for believing him/her.  Let just say that the house seems pretty bland compared to the details from that other person.

The major rumors to correct?  There are still three bedrooms (four including the HoH room), the HoH room is not a "Fun House" theme as was suggested, and the pool table is not gone.

Here is Julie giving a tour:
