World's Saddest Salad

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?

Rachel's digging her own grave already

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.

POV Players Have Been Chosen

The POV players have been drawn! Competing against Rachel, Kristen, and Hayden will be Britney, Enzo, and Ragan. Brendon was chosen by Rachel to host the little shindig.

Ragan is convinced that this POV will involve the much beloved unitard along with various prizes and punishments. It is the right time to have this competition so who knows. After the competition today, we just might see one of the hamsters dressed all in red! How funny would it be if Enzo was the one stuck in the unitard!

Kathy's really disappointed she didn't get picked to play in the competition as she was planning on winning it and taking Kristen off the block. No - seriously! The thought of her winning a competition is hilarious! Perhaps if it was an endurance competition for curling eyelashes and applying mascara she would have a chance. Oh and if it involved who could lay down the longest! Ha!

Kristen and Hayden are really going to have to fight for their lives in the POV competition today as nobody chosen to play have any plans on using the POV to save them. Again, that's as of today. Who knows what could happen in the end.

Anybody out there hoping that Kristen or Hayden wins the POV today? Do you think this might be the unitard POV competition? Let your fingers do the talking in the comments!

Pussy Patrol

The nominations are in this week and surprise! Rachel has bigger balls than Matt (and Brendon)!

Unlike Matt, Rachel stuck to her guns and nominated actual people in the house and not shadows. It doesn't matter if her nominations were emotional ones, she did what she wanted and basically told the others to screw off.

Did she nominate Kathy? No. Did she nominate Britney? No. Did she nominate Ragan? Hell no. Rachel nominated Kristen and Hayden.

We've seen this coming from a mile away since the show last night but I was worried about whether she would really stick to it or not.  Hayden tried to sweet talk her earlier and Kristen had her ear for over an hour before the feeds went to trivia for tonight's nominations.

All of it was awkward though. Rachel was able to drag some info out of Hayden earlier regarding Matt telling them that she'd go after a couple that dropped early in the previous HOH competition. Just wait until Ragan finds that out and it gets to The Brigade. Matt won't be happy about it but who cares. We'll get to watch Ragan fighting desperately for everybody to just hug and love each other. Barf!

Speaking of barf, could Brendon's sad display of self-castration be any worse than it was after the feeds came back on tonight? Apparently, Rachel made quite the speech in the HOH nomination ceremony and Brendon wasn't too happy about that. It is obvious to me that he has no testosterone and is worried about Rachel not being able to carry him through the game. I was actually proud of Rachel for just listening to him for so long without saying something back. She was probably thinking about a bag or something she could make from that sensitive testicle skin after he brings her the needle and thread.

So it's Hayden and Kristen on the block. Who do you want to win POV? Who do you want to go home? Do you think Brendon needs a patch or something for his hormone imbalance? Are you appreciating Rachel's actions like I am now? My questioning mind needs to know what you think!

Call Me Crazy

I don't know if I'm more excited that the Big Brother 12 season has finally begun or because the power has shifted in the house again this week, but I am so excited that Rachel won HOH tonight!

If you had asked me last week how I would be feeling if this happened tonight, I probably would have told you that I'd be cancelling my feeds. Seriously. So I'm as shocked as anybody that I'm actually looking forward to a Rachel HOH week.

Yes, I know there's going to be Brenchel kissy slurpy time up in the HOH room. I'm not too fond of that. Yes, I know there's going to be Rachel's crazy laughter and mood swings. I can deal with that. Yes, I know that Brendon will be sewing the fringe that's on the bag that he's given to Rachel that holds his testicles. I've been expecting that additional adornment.

But I'm excited because Rachel being HOH this week will shake things up in the house. I don't care if she makes emotional or strategical (did you see what I did there?) nominations this week. I don't care if she nominates people because of their favorite color or favorite movie. Let's just have something really exciting happen this week after the fantastic night tonight.

And while I'm still a Rachel hater, I have to give it to the girl. She's playing hard. She (and Brendon) are doing what it takes to stay in the game when both of them have been targeted since the very beginning. I have respect for her (and Brendon) when it comes to that.

So are you glad or mad that Rachel won HOH? Who do you think she's going to nominate? Are you finding yourself cheering for Brenchel as underdogs? Finally, I'm interested in where you think Kristen would be at in this game without Hayden right now. Let me know in the comments!

The beginning of the end?

Sorry, I'm trying to type through just hysterical laughter.

So as previously pointed out, Matt offered himself as a pawn.  Rachel and Brendon have been in the HoH talking about their options for what seems like HOUUUUUUUURS.  Rachel's still in love with the idea, so when Andrew came up in the middle of their long-ass, kiss-face session Brendon OFFERED HIMSELF and spilled the beans RIGHT IN FRONT OF RACHEL. She was immediately pissed and Brendon packed up his shit and left.  So she did what any mature person would do... bawl their eyes out.

Cut to 40 seconds later:

Ugh.  This is going to end horribly.  I cannot friggin' wait.

Gag Me

You know, it's not enough that Brendon and Rachel formed their showmance 24 hours upon entering the Big Brother House. It's not enough that they slurp each other constantly.

It's not enough that Rachel's fake laugh might drive me insane. It's not enough that Brendon wears the apron and frilly panties in their relationship and is of such a sensitive nature that butterflies and woodland fairy creatures call him their king.

But they have to hold hands to take a nap? Seriously? Are you kidding me?

Ugh!!!!

Somebody kill me now!

The Second POV Winner Is

The hamsters had an early wakeup call this morning in preparation for today's Power of Veto competition. After bitching and moaning for a bit they all finally got up and began moving around. There was plenty of complaining from Britney about her new Have Not bed (chaise lounge) and speculation from all about Big Brother calling them to the Diary Room so late.

Eventually though the players were picked for the POV competition. We knew Rachel would be playing along with her two nominees, Britney and Monet. Lane, Enzo, and Brendon would be joining them in the backyard for a little afternoon fun. Britney and Monet knew that they had to win the POV themselves in order to guarantee their safety this week as there was no chance nobody else would save either one of them if they won POV.

After more than three hours of trivia on the feeds, the hamsters finally reappeared on my small screen. Brendon and Rachel were up in the HOH room talking about a replacement nominee. Oh my goodness, that means that either Monet or Britney won it!

In the Have Nots room Enzo, Britney, and Monet were going on about the competition. Monet was crying and Britney and Enzo began trying to figure out the votes to save Monet. Guess what that means! Britney won the POV! Woohoo!

The competition itself was a timed competition. Britney said she was the first to drop. Enzo said he went fourteen seconds over. As the houseguests talked more about the competition, it sounds like they had to do something as close to an hour without going over. Enzo just keeps going on to Brenchel about being fourteen seconds over and how if he had won POV everything could have stayed the same and Britney would have gone home. (He doesn't know that Monet is Brenchel's target.)

Rachel was talking to Brendon about asking Britney not to use the POV at all and they would guarantee to  her that Monet would go home over her. Hey guys, there is NO WAY that Britney would pull a Marcellas. They also tossed around putting Kathy up as a pawn but they're worried that Kathy would get all emotional and take it personally. They're also still tossing around using Matt as the replacement nominee and feel that he'd be cool with it.

So there's no definite replacement yet but I'm sure once Brenchel gets more alone time tonight a decision will be made. I think they're going to go round and round a bit but will find their way back to the Matt plan. No matter what happens, I just Monet to go home this week! She's so boring! And while Britney can certainly be a little bitch at times, she's not an idiot and acts more like she wants to play the game. I love that about her!

What do you think about Britney winning the POV? Are you happy, sad, or mad? Who do you think Rachel should replace Britney with to ensure Monet's eviction?

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!

Meet The New Hamsters Of Big Brother 12 - Part 2

Welcome to the continuation of yesterday evening's post and more of my very unscientific snap judgments on the new Big Brother Hamsters!  One week from today we're going to see the new Big Brother 12 houseguests in action on our big and small screens.  I'm getting more and more excited as the hours pass and I hope you are too.  So let's get on with their bios shall we?

KathyKathy is my pre-season favorite.  She is a 40-year-old Deputy Sheriff in Arkansas and is an ovarian cancer survivor.  She seems fairly down-to-earth with a little thrill for adventure.  I actually don't see anything about her bio that I don't like.

Now some (outside of the house) won't like the fact that she's with law enforcement but I have a feeling that those in the house will be intrigued by it. I just hope that she's not asked too many questions about it because that will only mean one thing (fish or five or whatever the hell else it'll be called this season) on the feeds.  I can't see any other things that people could NOT like about her at this point although I'm sure we'll hear the standard hick jokes about her shooting guns and goin' muddin'.

I'm pretty sure that Kathy will find herself in the house mother role rather easily and because of her age and her job she'll probably get along with everybody pretty well.  So put me down for Team Kathy!

KristenScott, one of my fellow bloggers here, is already pretty taken with Kristen.  She is a gorgeous young lady and seems to have a decent head on her shoulders according to her bio.  I appreciate that she's been on her own (financial and otherwise) since the age of 18.  Yeah, she's only 24 but that seems to be more and more abnormal nowadays so good on her!  A boutique manager from Philadelphia, Kristen enjoys going to the gym, meditating, and shopping.  I find it interesting that Braden (BB11) was her favorite just because of his looks.  Something tells me she'd never heard of Big Brother before and was probably cast for the show.  What a shocker right? Ha!

Overall, I like Kristen so far and I hope that the word 'like' isn't used too often when she speaks.  She's also going to be great eye candy for the guys both in and out of the house.

LaneIf Kristen is looking for a romance (or even a showmance), Lane seems like a perfect match for her.  An oil rig salesman in Texas, he considers himself funny, outgoing, and athletic.  Lane enjoys riding motorcycles, working out, and hanging with his friends.  OK, this guy's entire bio should just be put up on any one of the various online dating sites.  He sounds like a petty swell guy outside of the house but I wonder how exciting he'll be to watch inside the house.

Oh, and being afraid of electric fences?  That's a little weird but understandable I guess.

MattMatt is another hamster with an almost perfect-sounding bio up. 32 years old, he's a web designer that enjoys playing and writing music, hockey, and annoying people for his own amusement.  Matt considers himself intelligent and a sweet-talker who says that while he's in the house it's going to be all about the game.  Let's hope he's not one of those that makes up stupid little lies about himself.  I can't stand those types!

He's a fan of Will (BB2, All-Stars) and Dan (BB10) and seems to have a little cockiness about himself.  I can't try to even guess how exciting he'll be to watch on the feeds but his bio sounds more exciting than Lane's.  Not by much though.

MonetMonet seems interesting.  She's a 24-year-old model in Illinois who still lives at home with her parents (according to one of the videos from The Early Show).  That's something that automatically gets on my nerves - especially when she's referred to as a princess.  However, she seems like our typical young beauty put in to have America fall in love with.

She says she's the coolest person you'll ever meet (gag) and considers herself exotic and active.  Monet says she's not a fan of "ditsy, stupid girls or guys who think they're all that" but is a fan of Jordan (BB11).  Now before all of you Jordan fans get up in arms and storm the comments with pitchforks, I never thought that Jordan considered herself 'all that' but come on, she was a ditz.

Monet's proudest accomplishments are being on 'The Young and the Restless' and having a great drivers license photo.  She also says she thinks that Big Brother's had too many trashy bimbos on the show so let's hope she doesn't find herself falling into that role.

RachelRachel is another hamster that seems like she'll be interesting to watch.  A 26-year-old VIP cocktail waitress in Las Vegas and a Chemistry graduate student? Hmmm.  She considers herself bubbly and effervescent and everything about her bio says that about her as well. 

She says she's going to hustle the hamsters in the house like she does at work (to get them to buy her champagne) and I can see that about her.  I think she'll definitely be one of our top schemers this season and I can't wait to see what she does.  Will she start scheming too early and burn out or let it simmer.  Something tells me this girl is not the simmering type though.

RaganRagan is a guy I'm just really not sure about.  He's a 34-year-old college professor in California who considers himself funny, intelligent, and genuine.  His voice got on my nerves like nothing in a long time in the Early Show videos and he seems to be quite exuberant.

His strategy for winning Big Brother is the perfect one as a combination of it has worked in just about every season.  Whether he can do it or not is another story.  As a gay man, he says he'd rather not live with homophobes (well duh).  He also says he'd rather not live with ultra conservatives or 18-23 year-olds.  I can understand that since that's the ages of the kids he teaches at school.  But isn't that kind of stupid at the same time considering the show he's going on?

I could crack jokes on his silly bow tie but I won't because it wouldn't surprise me if Big Brother made him wear that for his picture.  At least I hope so!  I think Ragan is going to be quite the hamster to watch.  I'm just not sure if it's going to be in a good or bad way.  Regardless, I'm sure he'll bring some conversation topics to the table more important than the latest fashion crazy or Twilight movie.

So that's the rest of the hamsters this season!  What do you think about them?  Do you have any that you like or dislike so far?  I can't wait until they get into the house and our pre-season opinions change of them.  That's one of my favorite things each season!
