The Brenchel Edit

I've found over the course of the past two years that the best way to tell if a person is a live feeder or not is their opinion of Brendon and Rachel. If one spouts nothing but positivity on them or their relationship, I know they only watch the CBS broadcasts. If their very presence annoys the shit out of them, it's safe to say they have spent plenty of time viewing the live stream.

I don't know who they know at the network, but it's clear they have some sort of connection. Throughout both of their seasons, the camera views rarely leave them. Even when they're in a room with many people, you can bet the "closeup cam" is focused on Rachel. When the two are alone, whether it's in the HOH or outside on the hammock, the vast majority of the time all FOUR cam views feature these two bozos.

This wouldn't be as infuriating if CBS didn't completely alter the footage used of the pair. Last year, network viewers were led to believe they were a modern day Prince and Princess; two angelic people brought together by a reality show, destined to live happily ever after. Live feeders saw it completely different - she was a shrill, annoying narcissist, expecting the world to revolve around her, while he was a self-proclaimed expert in everything who could have been a doctor, lawyer, astronaut, President, dictator. Only when the fight with Ragan was televised did viewers have any clue as to her unbearable nature.

Yet last season's edit is nothing compared to this year. As noted in earlier posts, Rachel is a shell of what we saw last year. What little soul she had is scrubbed completely out of her body. There's not a day that goes by without him pulling her aside to belittle her for the smallest sins. In fact, it generally happens at least three times a day. She can't talk to others without being yelled at by him. She can't look in another direction without being read the riot act. I'm surprised he doesn't get pissed whenever she takes a dump.

Like last year, though, CBS-only viewers have no clue as to Brendon's mental abuse. On last Sunday and Thursday's episode, snippets of them "fighting" were shown. Sunday's segment was primarily about plastic surgery, and it was turned into a "I love you the way you are" kissfest from Brendon. Thursday's portion of the show was a two-parter that occurred earlier in the week that had to do with Brendon's pet name, "Bookie". Both of these incidents were ugly to view in real-time, but once again the editors (and clearly coached diary room narration) transformed hours of bitching into a "I love her oh so much even though she's so silly") wink and nod. 

It will be interesting to see what is shown on Sunday, as the jealous, bitchy Rachel that we knew last year returned after the network telecast concluded. Rachel picked a fight with Cassi for no real reason, and once again Brendon (along with, but much more calmly,  Daniele and Jordan) belittled her for hours. As this is a big part of the week's plotline, it's going to be extremely tough to give her the same positive edit she's enjoyed so far this season.

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!

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.
