Big Brother 12 - Episode 3 Blog Party

big brother,jackiestvblog

I know, I know ... I haven't posted a live feeds report on the day's happenings yet. But they're SO in the doldrums in the house that there is little to report. The only thing which happened was another saboteur video appearance, this one mentioning that "I escaped from being evicted this week." Could be Brendon, could be anyone.

Anyway, the show is about to start here on the East Coast. Everyone is welcome to join in down in the comments area. The more, the merrier! Late tonight, my full review of the show should be up on TV Squad and this post will be updated to reflect major events as it airs.

Brendon won POV.

The saboteur appeared again -- said two in the house are lifelong friends and it's easy to figure it out.

Brendon saved himself and Annie is on the block in his place.

hello!

Joe in NY said...

apparently everyone forgot we're on Wednesdays... :)

Petals said...

Hey!

Petals said...

Ok Joe, we have the pool to ourselves. Are you gonna get on my floatie?

monty924 said...

Howdy pool peeps. How's Joe and Petals tonight?

JimmyB said...

I'm watchin'!!

Petals said...

So Joe have you heard the rumor that Hayden & Kristen could be brother & sister? Like that kinda twist? They look alike, so it could be true.

Joe in NY said...

No, I hadn't heard that. But Kathy and Britney could be mom/daughter. Seems like if it were "hidden relationships" they'd let us in on it, wouldn't they?

JimmyB said...

Uh...perfect-er??

Petals said...

Monty! We are fine! Glad more people are here, I think Joe is afraid to be alone with me, haha

Laurie said...

Not so fast, Petals ... You two don't want to become your own show, do you?

I'm still at work here on the west coast. I'll hang here a bit until traffic lessens and then I'm heading home for some early evening sunshine!

Petals said...

Jimmy your pic cracks me up.

Joe in NY said...

I think I should have my own show. It would, of course, be a tragedy...

Sally said...

Hi all. I'm here, for the moment. We're having severe thunderstorms, so they've been interupting programing. We've had so much rain--record amounts for June and July

Joe in NY said...

I'm officially grossed out by the hammock action. They are a creepy couple, I don't like 'em.

Petals said...

Joe, maybe we need a hammock? hehe

JimmyB said...

Petals--Most days, I feel like Moe.

Petals said...

Hey Laurie & Sally!!
Joe & I just play. Not a showmance. HAHA

Petals said...

Laurie, any ideas on the Hayden/Kristen siblinghood?

Joe in NY said...

good move by Hayden, just listening and not tipping his hand...

monty924 said...

Petals and Joe are our favorite Blogmance! :)

Joe in NY said...

Petals, who started that rumor?

Sally said...

Petals, If you and Joe did have a showmance, it would be more understandable than the hammock duo, since you've at least known each other longer than five minutes!

JimmyB said...

Yes, Hayden is playing a much better game than I would have given him credit. Brendon's got a brain in his head, apparently; + his ability in the comps...so he was a good choice to nominate.

Laurie said...

Kristin/Hayden could be related as they do have very similar features. Right now it's all speculation because the mole suggested someone was related or knew somebody before the show started, right? I do love how rumors can get going! If they are related I wish she would tell him to get a haircut!

Petals said...

Sally, I know!
Joe, started which rumor - me & you or the Kristen/Hayden? The Kristen/Hayden was started here, ML or some Anon mentioned it, and I can see why they think it. There is supposed to be another "connection" in the house... who knows?

Petals said...

Honey, we are in a blogmance! That's more action than I've gotten in months, haha

TerryinCA said...

Im watching, cant believe I am getting reception.
It poured all day long then about 4 totally dried up and the sun peeked out
This is my first real look at everyone....
Right now Im just loving the HOH bedroom sheets and comforter...I want it

Joe in NY said...

LOL. There is something distinctly unsatisfying about a blogmance... :)

JimmyB said...

Seriously--Has Kristin had ANY screen time whatsoever? I'm starting to think she's the "S" 'cause we haven't seen her at all.

Jackie said...

I think the saboteur said there was a connection just to get them more paranoid.

Sally said...

What's up with Rachel rolling her eyes after drawing Monet's name? We've seen so little of Monet, I haven't a clue.

meb said...

Poor Hayden looks like he's going to fall apart, but he held his ground. Good for him, even tho we know the outcome.

monty924 said...

I agree with Jackie. I think the Mole is just messing with them.

Anon E. said...

Not a fan of Brendon's game between that ugly showmance and his intimidation tactics I think he can do better. I don't have the feeds but it seems that for some reason Brendon's under the impression that Hayden (I guess because of the age difference and arrogance) is intimidated/afraid of him when clearly he's not.

Petals said...

So all the guys in the "brigade" get along except for Lane doesn't like Brendon? Is that what is going on?
"Brigade", @@ geesh!
Do the producers take them aside and encourage them to come up with a cheesy alliance nickname? What are the girls, then? The Pink Ladies?

Joe in NY said...

Sally, I think she just felt that Monet was no help to her cause. Although it came off worse than that. Rachel is an idiot...or Mensa member. LOL

Actually, I can't quite figure the Rachel bio out. She's supposedly a Chemistry "graduate student" but she works as a casino hostess? Most normal Chemistry graduate programs are full-time jobs and forbid you to work outside the university.

Joe in NY said...

OMG. A spelling contest. That always depresses me!

monty924 said...

Annie had a little personality there. More than she's shown on the feeds. She annoys the hell out of me.

Anon E. said...

Why is hayden so orange

monty924 said...

That's a smart tradegy for Brendon.

Anon E. said...

No offense but anyone else notice how Andrew runs like a girl

Petals said...

Joe, I agree about Rachel, she wouldnt be a waitress if she was so degreed. I think she talks more about chemistry than she actually does it. Unless mixing drinks counts.

Joe in NY said...

seriously, why would these people commit to a word so early

JimmyB said...

I'm really thinkin' they're intentionally keeping her (Kristin) off-camera.

Outta site--outta mind.

monty924 said...

I remember Russell the love muscle won this with "GUN"

rofl

Petals said...

what is it with the attitude on all of these co-called a$$hole "intelligent" people.
REAL smart people aren't suck JERKS!

Petals said...

Britney - LMAO! Right on girl!

Sally said...

Rotten mayo--are the have nots still taking only cold showers?

Joe, maybe Rachel is studying a different kind of chemistry in that Las Vegas casino--like the kind that's taken over her and Brendon's brains.

Joe in NY said...

Nice job Brendon!

Joe in NY said...

that was actually the best spelling contest they've ever had. They mostly spelled them wrong or not at all in previous contests. LOL.

Petals said...

Where IS Kristen? ? Her being the invisible HG is very odd.

Joe in NY said...

Hayden should have lied to Brendon before the comp and told him that he would take him down if he had the chance. Boy's too honest! LOL

Anon E. said...

Petals, when you win an award for being one of the smartest people in the world it goes straight to your big head. however they aren't really "smart." I don't think the test takes into account social intelligence, streets smart and overall life wisdom that comes with age. While Matt and the others are book smart they have a lot to learn about life.

Joe in NY said...

I know the "Brigade" is full of themselves, but I think they out-thought themselves on this one. They had a chance to remove one of the showmance and they decided that Annie makes more sense?!?!? Why? Even if she is in an alliance with Rachel, at best it is a push, but they KNOW Rachel is solid with Brendan.

I think they just wanted to show off their "BB muscles" by pulling off a back door the 1st week.

Petals said...

Anon, I agree. I think that there have been intelligent HGs in past seasons, several in fact. But the difference is that they didnt talk about it all the time. It seems like this group has to keep reminding themselves (and the confessional camera), that they are smart.
Whatev!

monty924 said...

Yeah Joe, remember TECHNOTRONICS?

LOL

Petals said...

geesh, heat index is 112 here.

monty924 said...

Annie annoys them and she plays both/all sides. They'te better off without her. JMO

Anon E. said...

Petals your avatar is a dead ringer of Ginger..I mean Rachel and every time I see it I get Ruby Blue stuck in my head.

because of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pCfULFWfNx0

Petals said...

Monty! You are too funny! You remember everything, technotronics! I remember that now, how FUNNY!

Petals said...

Jackie, where is Kristen?

meb said...

That was ingenious to add the 'ing' to a word making it that much longer. Brendon is no dummy... Wait, yes he is, he's attracted to booby girl, or heh, heh, heh girl.

She's probably not as obnoxious as some, but I just can't stand her laugh. Eeeek!

Petals said...

Hayden is mmm...not bad to look at. Sorry Joe.

Joe in NY said...

Monty, in the long run I think you're right about Annie. But in the short run I think they should make the safer play. What happens to the "Brigade" if Brendon wins HOH next week? He's going to target Hayden and he seems smart enough to know who Hayden's allies are.

Petals said...

AnonE, yeah, I looked at that hair and that bustline and thought: Jessica Rabbit. LOL

Joe in NY said...

Hayden is definitely the man I'd most do...

Jeff was definitely NOT a Mensa member. Did you see him on the Amazing Race?

Petals said...

lifelong friends. not relatives. Hm. shoot.

Joe in NY said...

What a great stunt that would be if it's a lie!

But Brendon should have kept his mouth shut, he looks guilty when he says that.

Petals said...

talk about segregating yourself, Andrew.

Joe in NY said...

Andrew! Why would the other hgs knowledge of Judaism be apparent to anyone? Why couldn't he have a goyim for a best friend? That was the oddest argument I've ever heard anyone make!

Anon E. said...

lol andrew...Matt & Ragan

Petals said...

Geesh, Rachel with her "come hither" pouty pose. blech

JimmyB said...

Kristin's my vote for it. First I thought Brittany...Changing my vote.

Petals said...

Joe, you'd do Hayden? HAHA.

Anon E. said...

The accusation makes sense. They all seem to have similar walks of life. None of them need the money. Think of the brain power in this house- A doctor, chemist, physicist, Web developer, professor, Sheriff, college student if only they knew

Sharon S said...

Andrew doth protest too much, but I don't think he is the sab, or know someone else in the house.

I'm still thinking the saboteur is Lane, but am thinking Kristen if it's not him.

Sharon S said...

Joe in NY said...

Petals, I said Hayden was the man I'd be most likely to do. (Do I have to be the bottom?) I didn't exactly say I would do him.

He's kind of like James on Survivor: he's my gay crush! :)

Petals said...

I guess Annie got a quiet edit this week. And Kristen got the invisible edit.

Sharon S said...

Sorry for the double post.

Petals said...

I kinda like Annie.
"Scotch" free? Britney is NOT in Mensa, haha.

Joe in NY said...

I like the Kristen theory. We've seen too much of most of the others. Although I still say Kathy was toooo incompetent to believe...

JimmyB said...

"Scotch-free".

I love the way these people talk.

Sharon S said...

Annie's rants and rages will probably be the basis for tomorrow's show.

monty924 said...

Hate Rachel's laugh, ugh!

Joe in NY said...

well, we know what Britney drinks.

Petals said...

Joe, My love - it takes a whole lotta man to admit a guy crush. Good for you. I have several on chicks. Megan Fox, and the cute little pixie vampire Allison on the New Moon movie.

Joe in NY said...

Well, I better go do some work. It was a pleasure sharing the pool with you folks!

See ya tomorrow.

Anon E. said...

The saboteur is someone who hasn't talked about the saboteur to the diary room. Andrew can't be. I'm betting on Rachel

Anon E. said...

sorry I mean Kathy

Joe in NY said...

Petals, Megan Fox is butch enough to count as a man for you. :)

meb said...

Well if Annie is the Mole, then too bad... she's not going to make it 6 episodes in and win $50,000. At least that's what Jackie's telling us, that it looks like Annie is leaving. Jackie, I hope you're wrong. I don't like Annie but I don't like Rachel more.

Petals said...

Megan a man!?!?!? You are whackadoodle, Joe!
Now I must demand a letter. An essay on Megan's femininity. hehe
XOXOOXXOXOX
later baby
Bye guys!
I am still thinking Kristen's invisibility is suspect.

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

Hey everyone, here is an image I made superimposing Kristen and Hayden. They are not lined up but offset just enough so you can compare features, such as distance between eyes (pupils), mouths and especially their noses.

Siblings. Fraternal twins.

Photo is at link where my name is.

Dr_Celine said...

Hello Everyone,

If Rachel hadn't picked Monet's name for the competition SHE was also outta sight outta mind with regard to the cameras. She was thrust into the camera limelight because Rachel picked her and rolled her eyes. My money is still on Monet.

Laurie said...

FA, that picture kind of creeps me out! I do see what you are saying, though. Very similar features.

I thought I read they were going to out the sab tonight. No?

Anon E. said...

Well hayden and kristen do look alike and are the same age

however so do Kathy and Britney and they are both from Arkansas

Did anyone else know that there was supposed to be a 14th houseguest who backed out at the last minute.

Anon E. said...

The Sab gets outted tomorrow

Lucy2~ said...

Could Rachel be related to Megan (I think that is her name) from those VH1 shows? You know, the one Sharon Osborne beat up. Something about that stupid giggle made me think of her. Anybody else see the similarity?

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

Laurie, yeah it is very creepy. There are some angle differences in the photos otherwise I could perfectly overlay every feature. I could do them individually and them superimpose them and you wouldn't be able to see the difference other than the eye color and that Hayden's left side of his mouth doesn't curl up in the smile like Kristen's does.

Their dimples and cheekbones are in the same positions exactly.

No doubt in my mind.

I didn't realize it until last night when I watched Tuesday night's BBAD where Kristen and Hayden were together talking.

I had also thought that Kathy and Britney might be related because I sort of noticed them avoiding too much contact with each other. I'm still not decided about them though.

ML said...

Ditto on the where the heck is Kristin? The more I watched I do think Brendon and Rachel are already a couple outside the house-married perhaps? I wasn't the first to suggest the Hayden/ Kristin similarities nor this, but the anon who did was a smart one. Whether by power of suggestion or not, I can see lots of potential relationships. The way Brendon and Rachel move together, the swiftness of their 'fall' for each other suggest pre-existing conditions. I think she dyed her hair for this show, and the two of them are living out a fantasy on tv. She's too comfortable with herself with him, if that makes any sense. I am anxious to find out the truth.
ML

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

ML, I disagree about Brendan and Rachel. They spend alot of alone time together and it's clear they are still discovering each other. I don't think they had a prior relationship.

Fer crissakes, he was trying to explain *chemistry* to her! I nearly fell off my chair when she told him she didn't understand how the electrons move around in atoms... wasn't she a chem major???

ML said...

That photo is distinctly creepy. Absolute twins. It amazes me what our Jackie blogger family does to get the scoop from frame-by-frame video breakdown to facial feature photographic overlay analysis. Are we all far-fetched, or wow how did they keep that a secret this long?
ML

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

Not to belabor the point, but... c'mon! Take a look at this photo (at name link above).

Sheesh. No wonder they don't give her much camera time.

I'll be shocked if they aren't siblings!

monty924 said...

I forgot to mention earlier... Matt was on one of the seasons of Average Joe. I thought that was interesting. SOrry if its already been reported here.

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

I like Matt, but he himself admitted that he buys boys-sized clothes.

Average? Not quite. (eek! I'm not being mean to him--I thought he was adorable in his footie pajamies!)

joy n said...

Busy day today. Just got home and will watch my tape but I want to read the comments here first. If there are spoilers, no prob.

PDX Granny said...

The show just started here on the left coast (as someone (Sally??) said). The sangria is probably watered down by now, and the sandwiches are probably stale. Not only that, there are some pretty strange things floating in the pool.
That's OK tho. I brought a cold bucket of beer and a bowl of popcorn for the other late comers. Help yourself!

Now I'll just sit back and enjoy the show, reading comments as I go, pretending I was there from the beginning. : )

PDX Granny said...

OK Sally, I just saw you're having severe thunder storms. I don't think those are going on here on the left coast. I guess that means you're not the one that calls it that.

I'm such a great detective it scares me! LOL

What's really funny is all the HG's watching Brendon and Rachael putting on a show in the hammock.

monty924 said...

I watched my tape back and have another to add to Britney's "scotch-free"

Rachel called the backyard a Pinata Siesta! What? A pinata nap? Didn't she mean Fiesta?

Some sharp people in there this summer. :)

PDX Granny said...

Since Brendon is my pool guy, I have to say Good Job!! Coming up with the idea of an extention on his word was a good move. He's just very lucky he was able to find all the letters he needed.

I wonder which one/ones he was still going after at the end ~ if it was part of the main word, or part of the extention.

At his point I'd say he's getting by with a little bit of brains and a little bit of luck.

I just wish he'd do something to make his mamma proud.

PDX Granny said...

Formerly Anon, good job with the superimposing the pics. It's eerie to look at it.

Caela said...

As i was watching the POV last nite, i was hoping someone would spell a word that didnt exist, like Jeff and his "technotronic" last year. I miss J&J! Last years hamsters were more entertaining!!!

Petals said...

G'morning guys!
How can the mole be outed tonight? He/she has barely done anything! What a waste of a "twist". I thought it was 5 weeks or something. I am lost.

EileenM said...

Petals, I think they are just outing the Sab to the viewing audience.
