Annie likes Britney. Hayden likes Kristen. Matt lied about himself. Enzo likes Rachel's boobs. Ragan seems to like Brendon a little bit. Kristen likes Hayden. Rachel has no clue about the Jewish religion. Andrew lied about himself. Enzo is worried about the law. Britney is engaged. Annie likes Enzo. Ragan lied about himself. Britney loves Ragan because he's "obviously a flaming homosexual." Annie didn't reveal her bisexuality. Let's toast!
Yes, tonight was the start of Big Brother 12. Can you say interesting? I thought the show tonight was one of the better premieres in recent years. The hamsters seem to be intriguing so far but not so dramatic or vapid that I found myself hating any one of them just yet. That actually kinda depresses me! LOL!
Julie (hey girl!) revealed the saboteur twist early on. The houseguests all seemed genuinely shocked and didn't give up much in the diary room. Julie told them that the saboteur could sabotage an individual, a group, or all of them. That could be important down the road I'd imagine. She told them that if the saboteur is evicted before five weeks is up, that they would walk out with nothing. But if they make it, they could win $50,000. It was fun watching them freak out about who it could be. And honestly, I have no clue who it is. I think it's a female but that's about it.
Now let's get to the first Head of Household competition. Julie told them they had to split into two groups of six but that meant one person sitting out. And of course the person sitting out didn't have a shot at the first HOH title (you kidding? I would have sat it out too!). Andrew immediately volunteered to sit out and wouldn't you know it, the Jewish guy had to wear a weiner. It was plastic though so wouldn't it technically be kosher?
So the mustard (yellow) and ketchup (red) teams had to hang on to weiners to make it across the backyard. There were quite a few face-plants in the process which made me laugh hysterically. But the big news was that as people crossed they would be eligible for cash prizes. The first one across on each team wins $10,000 but also loses the chance to become HOH. To become HOH, the last person from the team that gets their weiner across the yard wins the HOH title.
In all of this, Andrew becomes safe from eviction this week because he chose to sit out the competition. Monet and Annie were the first members of their teams to make it across which means they've already won $10,000 this season (but Kristen really wanted it more than Annie). Britney fell in the competition and hurt her knee (the other team replaced her with Kristen - not smart). Hayden was the last person from the first team to make it across and won Head of Household.
The rest of the show was full of Saboteur business. You can go to the CBS site and choose who you think it is and find out with everybody else who it actually is on Thursday, July 15th in the first live show of the season. We then got to see a little bit about the Saboteur making their appearance when the lights went out in the house.
Not one to let anything get by him, Enzo immediately thought it was an act of sabotage. Gee, ya think? And Brendon then chose to brush his teeth in the dark. Not suspicious is it? Andrew chose to play pranks on the others in the dark. Not suspicious either is it? The 'hidden' saboteur, by way of the flat screen in the living room, informed the others after the lights came back on that the storage room had been locked and to sleep with their eyes open. No soup for the hamsters!
The show closed with telling us that Sunday's show at 8:00 PM ET will show us who Hayden nominated for eviction. On Wednesday 8:00 PM ET is the POV show. And then on Thursday 8:00 PM ET we'll have the first live eviction of the season and also find out who the saboteur is.
So what did you think about the first show of the season? Anybody you like more or less after seeing them on TV? Who do you think the saboteur is? And are you ready for the live feeds to begin in just a couple of hours? Let us know in the comments!
