The plan of the house all week has been to make Brendon think he's being evicted tonight instead of Rachel. However, the person they'll be evicting is Rachel. They want to blindside Brendon so that he's out of sorts for the HOH competition.
At the beginning of the week, I doubted that they would keep the plan alive and it would be tossed aside along with every other idea that seems to pop up so early. The plan is still full steam ahead though. Rachel will probably have a nervous breakdown tonight - either when Julie announces her eviction or during her interview with Julie. There's no telling what Brendon might do.
I get that the other hamsters don't like Brenchel. Hell, I don't like Brenchel. I can't help but wonder why none of these ding dongs in the house aren't more interested in their two jury votes though. You stick it out in the house with Brendon and Rachel all that time and then, when it's the first week of jury, you decide to just lose it with them and send them out of the house in such a dramatic fashion?
There's no doubt that Brendon and Rachel have had a bad week. Some of it they definitely brought on themselves. But some of it was also brought on by the others in the house. I'm just thankful they didn't hear all of the vile and nasty things that were said about them behind their backs.
Do you think this surprise switch eviction is a good idea? If so, why? Is it because it just makes good TV? Do you think that this helps anybody's game or vote in the jury house? What do you think Brendon's and Rachel's reaction will be on the show tonight?
So Brenchel are nominated, and Rachel is staring daggers at Matt as hard as she possibly can. It's actually quite comical. If you want to see Rachel kill vegetables, flashback to 7:25 pm House Time.
Everyone's in the kitchen, so, they took their ball (read: salad) and went home (read: into the cabana room).
Rachel: I can't do this alone.
Brendon: If I win the POV, I'm using it on you.
Rachel: I'm not strong. *Cue crying*
Hello, Rachel? You signed up for Big Brother by yourself, you came into the house by yourself. One person will be left standing. Can this girl get a grip?
Earlier today, Matt, Rachel and Ragan were together in the cabana room. When Matt and Rachel started to talk game, Ragan was about to leave the room, to "give them their time to talk". Rachel said something to the effect of "no, you can stay, cause you two are a partnership". Ragan got pissed and they both told Rachel they had no idea what she was talking about. Ragan really didn't appreciate it.
Immediately after the spat, Brendon confronted Ragan and said he heard "two people ganging up" on "his girlfriend". Ragan explained that Brendon wasn't privy to the conversation, so anything he has to say about it means nothing. Ragan began explaining what really happened:
Rachel was trying to out an alliance in the worst way--just casually saying "oh, you two are together, so it's ok if you stay"--as if Matt and Ragan would have just gone along with it. Naturally Ragan defended himself. When people were curious as to what the hell was going on, and Ragan was explaining what happened, Rachel immediately came around and told him "no one needs to know what happened." In what world, Rachel? Hello, it's Big Brother. It's a bunch of people in a house, with nothing else to do. ANYTHING that goes on is everyone else's business.
Rachel apologized soon thereafter, but her craziness already rubbed everyone the wrong way. As if she needed the help.
Before the in-house lockdown that everyone is under now, Rachel was laying in the have-not room, by herself. Matt decided to break the ice, and check on her, which opened the door for others to come join her. Brendon and Rachel are in the have-not room now, talking about dinner, she's claiming she doesn't want to eat.
Poor Rachel. Boo-effin'-hoo.
There is still no "Nominations Today" screen, however, the house knows there's something going on. They've been talking about Pandora's Box--clueless as to what is possibly in store for them.
