Big Brother 12 - Episode 8 Blog Party Post

big brother,jackiestvblog

The show is actually starting on time here on the East Coast once again! As it airs, I'll post important updates in this entry. But the real fun is in the comments section. Everyone is invited to join in with your thoughts! Later tonight (or, worst case scenario, early in the morning), my full show review will be posted over on TV Squad.

HOH is down to Matt, Ragan and Andrew. Down to Ragan and Matt. Matt wins HOH. Matt put up Andrew and Kathy.

First in the pool!

Lisanne said...

Just missed first. :(

meb said...

Bring it awn! Hey merrilee... guess we're a little early.

meb said...

Always a second behind... how do you guys do that!

merrilee said...

that is ok. more room for us!

PlaidChick said...

Hi! Who wants pizza!

Joe in NY said...

Hello Ladies!

JimmyB said...

I'm surprised Kathy didn't jump-off immediately!

Joe in NY said...

How dumb are these people that they can't even work a silly little backdoor? You don't put up 2 pawns, you put up one pawn and a secondary target or two secondary targets.

merrilee said...

matt is to sure of himself

monty924 said...

Boing.... that's me diving in from the high dive!

Its too freaking hot to cook here so I just brought a cooler of beers and chips and salsa. Dig in everyone.

Merrilee said...

thanks monty! I am starved

PlaidChick said...

Kathy was first

merrilee said...

kathy down

monty924 said...

Joe, you're right. This week was/is an epic failure. JMO

Lisanne said...

So doing bad is her strategy. Okkkaayy.

Anonymous said...

The more Lane talks the less I like him

Laurie said...

Cannonball!!

Oh, sorry about that. I got carried away. Hey everyone. Happy Sunday!

Becky said...

Hey, everyone! Kathy was the first our... surprise, surprise!

PlaidChick said...

Joe, I agree, total epic fail for Matt's HOH

PlaidChick said...

Andrew needs a wax to work those shorts

monty924 said...

Why does it not surprise me that Kathy was first? Britney at least held out to final out for the haves.

Joe in NY said...

Sorry, I just don't find Enzo funny. I find him kind of phoney.

RBennie said...

Hello All,

Is it just me or is Matt extremely cocky and annoying?

Anon E. said...

I REALLY don't like how later seasons of Big Brother have adopted this "vote as a house" deal. I liked when everyone voted on their own terms unless in an alliance.

Becky said...

I really, really, really dislike Matt. Anyone else feel that way?

merrilee said...

me too becky

Delee said...

Hard to watch this and all the time it is taking when we know who won. Move on!

Hi ALL!

PlaidChick said...

I like him Becky, because I thought he was going to get Brenchel out, I was wrong.. I like enzo and britney, really the only entertainment on the feeds

Anonymous said...

It's also weird how sure of themselves these people are. Enzo and Lane. just shut up, you lost!

Laurie said...

RBennie, I agree. Matt is cocky and annoying and more ... He is not all that and a bag of chips in spite of what he thinks!

RBennie said...

I'm glad Enzo's a Jersey boy and not a NYer, LOL

Anon E. said...

To Delee,

I agree. Doesn't Big Brother realize that most people have access to the internet and know these things already. Yet, they continue to edit the show as if people are in suspense.

Joe in NY said...

And seriously, if they wanted Brendon and/or Rachel out you HAVE to nominate both of them because then they can't save themselves even if one of them wins POV. Short of that, who is your second tier targets? It can't be Kathy and Andrew, they are threats to no one. IMHO. I would think there are bigger fish to fry. Now I have to cheer for Brendon or Rachel to win HOH next week just so the Dumb A$$ Brigade can take one in the chin.

I do have to give the DAB credit though, they've managed to mostly keep their alliance a secret. Most other alliances in the past didn't stay secret for more than a week. Frankly, I think the weak link in the DAB is Matt. He's playing too hard (IMHO) and telling too many lies. He's going to be a target (probably already is) which will force the Brigade to save him which will at the very least out them.

Becky said...

Joe, I agree, I am not an Enzo fan either. Brendon is at a disadvantage with size 13 feet. I do like Ragean and Andrew too. Jackie, I think if there is a life long friendship it is Brendon and Andrew. I like Brendon, but can't say much for his taste in women.

Joe in NY said...

RBennie, LOL. I feel sorry for Jersey. First they are "represented" by the cast of Jersey Shore and now this!!!

And you can also pencil me into the anti-Matt camp. He reminds me of Eric ("America's Player") only he's even cockier, perkier, and more sure of himself!

RBennie said...

I'm not sure that if R&B get HOH they will even nominate any of the Brigade.

Lisanne said...

They showed Matt before the comp saying he was gonna gun for Kathy because he thought she had voted for him.

monty924 said...

Brendon kills me with his whining... argh!

Anonymous said...

Well you can add Brendon to the list of cocky men who are way too sure of themselves and overestimate their endurance.

RBennie said...

Matt certainly doesn't have any self confidence problems does he?

Anonymous said...

perhaps the 3 unexpected people made it to the end!

Anonymous said...

lol, yes Monty and when he pouts to Rachel...ARG!!

PlaidChick said...

Joe, you're right, and I like the DAB name for short LOL, it was stupid that deal Matt made with Brenchel, and the two powers are really the DAB vs. Brenchel... the rest are worthless are not competition yet.

Becky said...

Did I say I really, really dislike Matt? LOLOLOL

JimmyB said...

Love the Yiddish terms, Andrew. Very funny.

merrilee said...

yes you did becky. I agree with you 100%

Joe in NY said...

I agree with you folks talking about the "house votes". Same thing on Survivor. as time goes on, people are less and less likely to make big open moves. That's kind of why I (reluctantly) liked Dr. Will and (enthusiastically) Janelle, they played hard and in the open. Even Evil Dick and Evil Russel (on Survivor). I don't know that playing like that is the smartest but it is far more entertaining for the viewer and takes big cohones. I have to sort of respect the fact that Will would just tell the rest of them that they were going home and he was going to win. He didn't pretend to "play nice" and vote with the house.

PlaidChick said...

I think the life long friends from the sabo was a lie and there aren't any, if there was, BB would of played it up on the shows by now.

IMO the only life long friends in the house are the fish

Anonymous said...

WHO SAID "RAGAN, I'm IMPRESSED?" ass

merrilee said...

reagon's my boy for the pool and want him to win hoh soooo bad, but we know the out come

RBennie said...

Oh please don't make me start longing for the days of Will and Janelle.

PlaidChick said...

Anon: I think it was Andrew

monty924 said...

Everyone picking on my Pool Boy... including me, LOL.

RBennie said...

And let the crying begin.

PlaidChick said...

They are like a bad soap opera

Joe in NY said...

Brilliant, Brendon, you feel you and Rachel are a target and so you want to hide out with her and avoid the HOH and other HGs. LOL.

Do you think CBS really wants us to love Brenchel or hate them? They really seem to be forcing them on us. Or is there just nothing else to show us? I would prefer about 10 minutes of just listening to Britney dish on the other HGs...or maybe just 10 minutes of watching Britney do nothing. lOL.

PlaidChick said...

Can someone explain to me her eyelashes???

Joe in NY said...

PlaidChick said...

PlaidChick, only God can explain her eyelashes. They defy Physics.

PlaidChick said...

Joe, I think it's a force, they are always on at least one of the feeds. I don't know many people who straight love them via blogs and such. Ragan told them last night he was positive they would both be on the next BB All Stars

Anon E. said...

I really like how watching Big Brother has turned into an experience! Instead of watching 3 times a week. I'm following online and watching and commenting online at the same time. Other people watch the feeds, blog and watch BB AD Who'd have thought it would be like this when it first started.

meb said...

And it's too bad that Matt doesn't send her home... or at least put her on the block... but then we know he doesn't... Jerk!

RBennie said...

Oh I'd take the Britney dish any day. I find her to be hilarious. I know she's bitchy and catty, but she'd kind of fit in really well in my household, LOL.

Jackie said...

Joe - I'm in Jersey ... but you won't see me on TV

Anon E. said...

Well Joe, I'm sure the BB producers have interns and such patrolling the net and taking notes. So they know how we feel about each of the characters. So they are editing accordingly to make us further not like them. notice how Chenbot recognized Matt's mention of it.

Joe in NY said...

That was kind of cute: Enzo and Britney. Meow Meow.

Anon E. said...

"What else do you say wrong"

Linguists across the nation are pulling out their hairs.

monty924 said...

GOod to see the reveal, they blocked it from the feeds. :(

JimmyB said...

Kinda sounds like Matt's wife might not (also) be a mensa member with that grammer.

merrilee said...

johnny fairplay wannabe

Joe in NY said...

I know, and you have my sympathy. Look at what Britney just said: "He's real NJ, just like a Soprano." Jersey needs an Anti-Defamation League to save their rep!

LMAO!!!

monty924 said...

Britney is hilarious on the feeds. She was telling Lane about the Nerd herd yesterday, and I thought I would die laughing. The only problem with her story was... she kept calling Janelle's alliance Chilltown. S6 was the sovereign 6. Oh well, she was still a hoot.

merrilee said...

these people cannot play stratically.

Joe in NY said...

See, if CBS wants to push a couple on us, why not Kristen and Hayden? There are kind of cute. Of course it is hard to have a TV couple when the woman is invisible but still...

merrilee said...

bros before hos? wtf

monty924 said...

Enzo just lost me with the "Bros before HOs", ugh!!!

Lisanne said...

Do they not have a spycam thing in the HOH room anymore? I haven't seen it used this time around yet.

Becky said...

Enzo, stick a sock in it! Kristen is not a "Ho".

Jackie, did a dead rat run across your foot when Britney said he was So Jersey? I shuddered and thought, she just insulted an entire state!

monty924 said...

I almost wish Kathy would stay for the female numbers, but they've already proven that they are too stupid to use them. Rachel would get rid of Britney and Kristen in a HEARTBEAT. Duh!

Joe in NY said...

Monty924,

In fairness to Britney, didn't Janelle end up a member of Chilltown in the All-star season? At least she's watched the show. Sometimes the cast looks like they are too busy admiring themselves to have watched anything else.

PlaidChick said...

I just had a gross out thought: Though highly unlikely, what if Hayden and Kristen were cousins and they didn't know it?! Kind of like Cowboy and Nakomis?

JimmyB said...

I can't really appreciate this so-called strategy of getting rid of someone just 'cause they were a vote against you. Kathy's the biggest floater in the house (maybe in years); unless it'sa big act.

monty924 said...

They still have the HoH spycam, Lisanne. :)

merrilee said...

they have no game!

JimmyB said...

PlaidChick said...

...I'm thinkin' BIG ratings for CBS :)

Lisanne said...

Just would think they would use it to find out what Hayden was up too and all. Then again, that might be a bit "smart".

Joe in NY said...

Plaidchick,

I keep having this hot thought that Kristen and Hayden really are brother and sister. :)

PlaidChick said...

Rock on Andrew!!!

PlaidChick said...

Ohh Joe, you kinky thing you!

monty924 said...

Joe, she got S6 and S7 mixed up, but Janelle vs. the Nerd Herd was S6. :)

Anon E. said...

merillee said Matt's a Jonny Fairplay wannabe.

Matt has done his research and is conjuring up a mixture of Eric, Dr. Will and Johnny fairplay. He knows what's going to give him camera time and wants to win the producer's favor. This opens the door for future all star shows, america's favorite player and other fame outside the house

merrilee said...

stop making out would be nice

PlaidChick said...

This is too funny!

Ohh no, Lane and Britneyisms!

Joe in NY said...

Lisanne,

They could also have suggested nominating Kristen just to see what Hayden's reaction would be...

Anonymous said...

Im telling you if this show has any more Brenden and Rachel Show-- I will just wait and watch on hulu-- so I can fast forward.. they are so dang annoying.

~Angie in KC.

Britney and Lane Hilarious!

Joe in NY said...

Lane is the new Monet! Who'd have thunk it?

RBennie said...

Britney and Lane - Hilarious

Anonymous said...

Britney could easily be another Janelle if she ups the bit%% factor a bit.

Joe in NY said...

Personally, I think Baby food and bok choy would be pretty good.

Anon E. said...

"bootleg pieces of lettuce" haha

Anon E. said...

I doubt CBS will allow the bro and sis to do the things Hayden and Kristen have been doing, but I wouldn't put it past them to pretend they didn't know and then play the "oh, rumors over the internet and in the house say they are related so we researched it and what do you know, they are" card.

PlaidChick said...

Ohhh matt... there was nothing mensa about that move

RBennie said...

Diabolical super genius? Did he really just say that?

Joe in NY said...

yeah, right, you are a diabolical super genius. Hope he goes next week so he can explain to Julie how diabolical super geniuses go home early to avoid all the taxes that come with winning prizes.

Becky said...

Who was it that said Britney has a resemblance to Dolly Pardon? She does. What? Andrew just asked why Matt isn't going after the top two in the game.

Joe in NY said...

If Matt could actually trust Brenchel, that is not a bad move. On the other hand, since he can't trust them, wtf? Now he's going to have annoyed Ragan as well and if he's not careful, the DAB will end up spawning a bigger, tighter alliance than they have...

Sometimes, Mr. Diabolical Super Genius, the obvious move is obvious for a reason: it's a good move!

merrilee said...

Ragan has a nice bod, but they never show him with is shirt off

Brent McKee said...

Andrew: "Get a room already."
They have room, you keep walking into it!

Matt has always called himself a diabolical super-genius. Let's just remember what always happened to another self-proclaimed super-genius, Wile E. Coyote. Kept being beaten by a bird whose brain capacity was smaller than the diamond on Britney's ring.

Joe in NY said...

Becky,

Britney does look a lot like Dolly did about 40 years ago. Although Dolly is still pretty hot: definitely on my list of Top 10 dateable women over 60! Although Sally Field remains my number one by a mile!

Jackie said...

Becky - Enzo is actually SO Bayonne, not Jersey on the whole. I worked with a Polish guy from Bayonne and he had that accent, too.

Joe in NY said...

Ouch, Brent, double zinger!!! LMAO

RBennie said...

Oh Brendon we didn't get nominated, let's go makeout to celebrate, LOL.

Anon E. said...

lol, the perfect last scene, Andrew walking in on Brachel.

Joe in NY said...

Seriously, Mr. DSG, how the heck did that accomplish anything? It made you an enemy where you may not have had one and ended up keeping Brenchel in the house. If you gather up Brenchel and the other floaters, the Brigade might end up on the short end of the house. If they ousted either Brendon or Rachel everyone else in the house would have applauded and they would have improved the DAB position.

monty924 said...

Awww, Joe. I love you list of women over 60 and agree with Dolly and Sally. :)

Matt made a huge mistake this week counting on the POV and a backdoor situation. Hope he can escape Andrew if he stays.

GO KATHY!!! :)

Joe in NY said...

Monty924,

I have a list for every decade. Of course I only have 2 on my over-80 list: Betty White and Cloris Leachman...dirty, dirty girls!

Delee said...

Was this show boring or what? Please AG and CBS no more BR make out sessions. GAG!!!

Laurie said...

Becky, I said a few days ago that she reminded me of a younger Dolly with her smile and that dimple and the accent. Glad you can see it, too.

Joe, I find myself agreeing with you so many times this season. Loving the DAB and Mr DSG. Great laughs. thanks.
