Big Brother 12 - August 12 HOH Comp Coverage

9:44 PM ET - Feeds back, sounds like Matt, Britney and Ragan are the Have Nots chosen by Brendon. Confirmed.

9:29 PM ET - Brendon and his rope through, no one else really close. The bell wouldn't ring. He started to shout something about "this is what you get when you evict ..." -- then the feeds were blocked.









9:10 PM ET. still blocked. wait, some audio.

I'm getting this post up at 9:01 PM ET. The feeds are still blocked. But when they come up, the newest news will be on the top.

Hey peeps

RyzandShyn said...

—Usage note
The verb impact has developed the transitive sense “to have an impact or effect on” ( The structured reading program has done more to impact the elementary schools than any other single factor ) and the intransitive sense “to have an impact or effect” ( The work done at the computer center will impact on the economy of Illinois and the nation ). Although recent, the new uses are entirely standard and most likely to occur in formal speech and writing.

Joe in NY said...

yo, Petals.

Taking my dog tomorrow to find him a girlfriend. If only they had rescue groups for unwanted women! LOL

RBennie said...

This comp can't take too much longer. Hopefully we will know the winner shortly.

joyn said...

Brendon looked like he was all business working on that rope. He wants it bad!

Petals said...

Joe! I am in a group of unwanted women. LOL
You aren't really taking him anywhere, are you?

Petals said...

oh, I re-read. You want a girlfriend for HIM! OK.
Well, he is sexy, shouldn't be too hard to find him a sexy little Cocker or a Pom.

Lars said...

Kathy might win! Haha NOT!

joyn said...

If Brendon should win this HOH, Rachel will have a fit! Too little, too late, monkey!

chris said...

so what did julie mean
when she told rachel she may be back??

Sally said...

Jackie, I hope this HOH doesn't last too long. I know endurance competitions complicate your already long Thursday evenings--and the've happened so frequently recently.

Petals said...

Gotta go. Love you, miss you!
Take care, hopefully I will see ya on Sunday.

Joe in NY said...

Nite, Petals

Anon E. said...

LOL, I've had this argument many times before. Many dictionaries apply common usage to their terms, but it doesn't make it true. Impact, as in influence, is verbing a noun and is definitely considered improper for professional journalists according to the Associated Press. Julie should not have used it as such

Anonymous said...

I think we've got it on the impact thing.

meb said...

Chris, I want to know what Julie meant too. Did you all hear me groan when she said that. Now that's when I say BB is messing with the game if she ends up back in there. There is probably going to be a vote from America whether to send her back in. Oh please have pity if that's the case. I cannot stand one more moment of her.

Laurie said...

Would somebody tell me what the HOH challenge is? I know it's a rope but what's going on with that rope?
Thanks!

Anonymous said...

When Julie said that Rachel may not be gone from the Big Brother house all together, it means that she is a choice for the next Big Brother All-Stars.

Anonymous said...

I'm watching the comp via free live feed on some website. Brendon's winning

tbc said...

I'm still trying to get over the "mother of my children" comment from Brendon....OMG

RyzandShyn said...

Maybe she was just going with the sabotage business. I hope that's all it was. Is there any way to count weeks left compared to houseguests left and figure it out?

Anonymous said...

impact

ORKMommy said...

I think Julie was just playing along with the saboteur. It doesn't mean anything.

meb said...

Laurie, the rope tied to each hg and is tangled in the netting, each hg has a 'lane' and whoever gets the rope untangle and gets to the end of the lane first, wins HOH.

anonymouse said...

Why doesn't someone throw there ropes around Brendon to slow him down?

Joe in NY said...

If she was playing along with the Saboteur she would have said it to the HGs not Rachel who is no longer in the house. Have the been sequestering those evicted? I remember a rumor that Annie had been sequestered. If they have, they could put someone back into the house, they did it with Kaysar didn't they?

Anonymous said...

Brendon is slowing down, Lane is catching up! Hayden's in 3rd

Anonymous said...

Doesn't it seem like the person on the block who doesn't go home becomes the HOH?

meb said...

Ragan could do that and get away with it since he's the saboteur... and they still wouldn't know it.

Jackie, any audio yet to know who is where in the race?

joyn said...

This comp was def. stolen from Survivor.

Lisanne said...

Am I the only one that wants to see Rachel go back in? I just think its gonna get boring with just the DAB and the not so saboteur.

Anonymous said...

But it looks like Brendon's got this one guys

RyzandShyn said...

Rachael is the first in the jury house, isn't she?

Joe in NY said...

I believe throwing a rope around Brendon could result in possible eviction from the house or at least a penalty nom.

Besides, if there is anyone in the house left with a brain they should start doing the math and figure they might need Brendon.

Anonymous said...

GAME OVER BRENDON HAS THIS!!!!

RyzandShyn said...

Move it, Lane!

Joe in NY said...

BEST thing that could happen for US is for Brendon to win HOH. He'll definitely nominate Matt which could force him to use the Diamond veto which would have all kinds of ramifications the following week.

Laurie said...

Thanks, meb!

chris said...

I don't know Julie seemed to indicate it would be this season not another season that Rachel may not be done with the big brother house.
who is winning HOH
I think the brigade wants Brendon to win it because he will target Brit, Ragan and Kathy for his woman.
Matt is not worried cause he has the veto.
this way the brigade gets out one of their allies without getting dirty.
Britney would be so angry at Lane for voting her out.
If however Matt goes against Britney and Britney wins veto, both noms would have to change and matt would be in a quandry, since who would he name as his replacement? If Brendon is HOH Matt can't name him so that would leave Kathy.

Anonymous said...

my free feed's been blocked, but Brendon was well ahead. Lane, then Hayden

Anonymous said...

Go Lane Go!

ORKMommy said...

Joe - ED threw a glass of iced tea on Jen and didn't get any punishment. "Accidentally" throwing the rope on Brendon probably wouldn't get any punishment either.

Anonymous said...

BRENDON WON

Lars said...

Lane very well could nail this..
Don't want Brit or Regan, doubt they're trying very hard anyway.

Lisanne said...

But the ED water thing wasn't in a comp was it?

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

Brendon won HOH I think

chris said...

this may be the week that Ragan leaves or even Britney if she cant win the veto!
Lisanne
I too would like to see rachel come back just to screw with the Brigade

Anonymous said...

Jackie, what excitement you've stirred in my house tonight! I love the pics!
Go, Brenden, GO!!! I believe the cockroaches are starting to get the urge to scramble!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Brendon's won

ORKMommy said...

No, it wasn't but it was still throwing something at another HG. And if it were an accident...while someone was hoisting the rope to get a better grip... I'm just sayin...

I'm rooting for Brendon. I want more drama!

Anonymous said...

I already miss Rachel and am cheering hard for Brendon!!!!! I want Rachel back and hopefully they will pull something where someone comes back in the house!!! They did it with Crazy James too!
I completely agree with you Lisanne!!!
April

Joe in NY said...

ORKMommy, I know about ED and the iced tea. But, if you remember, they yelled at Jen for messing with his cigarettes and then gave her a penalty vote for eating a cookie. BB is not always consistent in their punishments so if I were an HG I'm not sure I'd take a chance in an HOH comp...especially because I don't think they really care if Brendon wins. AFter all, he's an army of one, sooner or later he's not going to be HOH or win POV and they can always deal with him.

ORKMommy said...

"This is what you get when you evict..." my man!! Oh wait, that's what Rachel would have said. I confuse the two of them!

RyzandShyn said...

I can't actually bring myself to cheer for Brendon, but it's true that his HOH would be great drama.

RyzandShyn said...

I can't actually bring myself to cheer for Brendon, but it's true that his HOH would be great drama.

ORKMommy said...

It doesn't matter at this point. Looks like Brendon won! Good...drama this week!

joyn said...

This next week ought to be interesting. Even if Rachel's gone, we'll be hearing her name over and over. Brendon will not let us forget his one true love and what was done to her. Woe is us.

Sydney said...

wait -- if Brendan got thru first, didn't he win? SIgh, what did I miss...

Hey RZANDSHYN!!!

Anonymous said...

Glass of water in the face while in the kitchen vs. throwing a rope around someone while in the middle of a comp...doesn't take a genius to figure out that would be cheating. @@

chris said...

Again
Matt and the brigade did not care if Brendon won, in fact Enzo and Hayden made sure not to be on his bad side so they would not be targets
Matt just kept his mouth shut and watched kathy and ragan fight with rachel.
brendon will most likely go after them so Matt will be safe no matter what as will his brigade.
Britney is toast too as a nominee.
like i said before
it would be great if it were matt and britney nominated, and brit wins pov then both noms would have to be changed.
matt would have to pick kathy and brendon would most likely pick ragan unless something else happens
The brigade is sitting pretty at this point

Sydney said...

I'm loving project runway being 90 minutes this season!

meb said...

I don't mind Brendon winning HOH... just means it's another week in the house where he can't be with Rachel. He just screwed himself, literally.

He'll put up two of the four in the house he dislikes the most...Matt, Ragan, Britney or Kathy.

Of all of them, I hope Ragan and Britt stay to fight another day. I don't care about Matt or Kathy if they go.

Thanks Jackie for staying with it.

Sydney said...

OMG Brenden WON?!?

Anonymous said...

chris

actually the Brigade will be targets if Brit, Matt and Ragan are Brendon's target. He'll probably nominate Ragan and Britney, Matt will use the Diamond Veto and someone or two people from the Brigade are going up and one is going home.

RyzandShyn said...

Hiya, Sydney!!!
Do you think it's only because there are so many designers, or is it always going to be 90 minutes?

RyzandShyn said...

Did he win? Jackie confirmation?

chris said...

anon
Matt will not use the diamond veto on ragan brit or kathy
so not sure how you think two brigades will be up
not unless brendon suddenly sees the light and puts up two.
but matt takes one down and picke his replacement and the remaining brigade have 3 votes out of 5

ORKMommy said...

I don't think they ever said WHEN during the week Matt could use the Diamond Veto. I can't find anything on the website either.

Let's say he nominates Brit & Matt and Brit wins POV. She'll take herself off but do we know for sure that Matt has to use it during the ceremony? Maybe he'd have to use closer to eviction. Does anyone remember from past seasons?

Anonymous said...

Matt will surely save Ragan

joyn said...

Jackie pretty much confirmed. The bell didn't but nobody else was close.

Joe in NY said...

Anon 9:43, why would Matt use the power of veto to remove Britt or Ragan? And there would NOT be 2 brigade going up. The diamond power of veto allows Matt to simply evict whomever he wants so he would presumably save himself only and evict probably Kathy.

Anonymous said...

She said the bell didn't ring.

chris said...

matt would have to use it at the veto meeting and pick a replacement for himself.
Brendon would have to pick the replacement for Britney if she won the other pov.
so again only one brigade member could possibly be up
and since there are 3 brigade votes they will be safe

ORKMommy said...

I don't think Matt would save Ragan. If it's Ragan and Brit, he can just talk the others into voting out Brit and not have to admit he has the Veto at all. I just don't see Matt sacrificing his game for anybody, even Ragan.

Anonymous said...

He won't nominate Kathy. He's already mentioned his three main targets. He'll put up two of them.

chris said...

joe
I agree Matt would not use the veto on ragan or britney

ORKMommy said...

Do we know for sure he'd have to use it at the veto meeting? I just don't see him using it unless he's one of the nominations. He's not anybody's "knight in shining armor"!!

Sally said...

I think Julie said Matt's last chance to use the Diamond POV would be one week from tonight, so it sounds like it would be used during the eviction meeting.

In his HOH blog, Matt sounds hestitant to use that power. I suspect he will only use it if he's nominated and in danger of being sent home.

ORKMommy said...

Matt, Brit and Ragan are the have nots according to Jackie. I think we need to start texting to get them bologna & bran muffins. That's the only half decent choice they gave us!

Anonymous said...

The diamond veto doesn't allow Matt to evict anyone, just replace any nominations. He'll definitely use it to save Ragan especially if it means Kathy will go up in his place.

Anonymous said...

not again! this is ridiculous! is this his second, or third time as hoh? -jeannemarie

Anonymous said...

Jean

? it's his first. Brendon won, not Matt.

Sally said...

Actually having Brendon as HOH could be good for the Brigade. If Brendon nominates Britney and Ragan, they could get rid of one of the strong non-Brigade players, without having to do the dirty work themselves.

I do feel sorry for the person who gets evicted next and has to spend a week alone in the jury house with Rachel and her awful laugh.

Joe in NY said...

Anonymous 9:54

I believe when Matt read the POV power it said he would have the sole vote to evict. Can anyone confirm?

Joe in NY said...

this was the best possible outcome for us! Now we need Matt nominated so he has to use the POV and out himself as a liar. LOL

meb said...

I thought Julie said the diamond veto is used on eviction night. That he has the authority to take someone off on eviction night and he also gets to nominate the replacement.

Jackie ?? do you know ??

Jackie said...

Yes, Meb. He only had this week and next to use it. But he can take someone (including himself) off the block and name the replacement.

Of course, he couldn't put HOH Brendon up.

ORKMommy said...

I don't know when it's used, but the power is to remove a nominee and select the replacement. There's no guarantee that person will be evicted.

Anonymous said...

No, it's only replacements

ORKMommy said...

Boston Med is on. It's the face transplant episode. I love this show!!

RyzandShyn said...

Wow, I guess that did work out well for us. It'll be interesting to see what Matt does.
This will impact the game! :)

Joe in NY said...

I checked CBS, you are correct. It said he can "solely choose the replacement" not (as I thought) "solely vote to evict". I stand corrected.

However it only allows him to replace a single nominee so I cannot see him using it on anyone but himself. There is no point in him going out on a limb for anyone else in the house. It's not like Ragan would know that Matt DIDN'T save him. By using it, he outs himself as a liar so what would be the point to save anyone else.

joyn said...

Got a feeling that Britney and Ragan won't be quite as vocal this week. Their worst nightmare just happened.

monty924 said...

Missed the entire blog party. Boy was I ever late.

I think in almost all scenarios, Kathy goes to jury this week. If Britney, Ragan and Matt are the three targets, two of them go up and either could win veto. Someone else could win veto and take one of them off. I think Matt is just itching to use the Diamond Veto as he said over and over again this week that he hopes Brendon wins HoH and nominates him. Kathy would definitely be the replacement because she hurt Rachel's little feelings with the veto comp this week.

I just feel sorry for whoever has to live at the jury house alone with 'I Am Vegas' for an entire week.

Sally, you are definitely right about the brigade wanting Brendon to get the blood on his hands by evicting one of the 'floaters'. He can't play for HoH next week and only the veto will save him. the brigade has control now and the numbers to run it to the end.

Anonymous said...

Am I the only one who thinks people won't be mad at Matt about having the veto? All he has to say is "BB wouldn't let me tell you guys" and wouldn't they all "get" that?! I think the Brigade will be happy as it saves them if he gets nominated. I think he will be the first of the 4 to go because they don't trust him, but I don't think this will be a deal breaker if he uses it.

Anonymous said...

Matt can not tell anyone about the dia veto or bb will take it away so he has to keep it a secret. so even if he said he didn't get anything or he got a dollar or 1000 $ he would have to lie. so everyone please get over that he lied about it. he had to lie or lose it!

Anonymous said...

THANK YOU. I agree. Hopefully the hamsters all understand Matt had no choice but to lie. The person he nominates will be pissed but the brigade will still be happy becaus he didit (if he has to) for them. I honestly don't see this hurting Matt as much as people think it is going to esp with the Brigade

Anonymous said...

And why couldn't Matt use the Diamond Veto, to remove any of the nominees and replace it with the HOH? I remember him saying that he can replace the nom with anyone HE CHOOSES!! Kill Brendon with his own smuggness!!!!! Send him packing to his "woman" I AM VEGAS!!! Heffa

monty924 said...

Anon 11:18, I agree that he has an out with the BB said I couldn't tell anyone. That's the truth, but will the Brigade believe him.

I just finished reading his blog, and it does appear that he will NOT use it unless he is on the block come Thursday night. He's paranoid over it and the saboteur. He thinks they all suspect him because the rest of the house thinks that the sabo has a special power (aka - why would anyone do it otherwise)... he suspects Enzo, LOL.

Anonymous said...

Dang it! That's irritating. Brendon....NOOOOOOoooo! Ugh.

Jackie, thank you for your blogging. Who do you think he'll put up?

And, I agree, balony and bran are the best choices for the have nots.

lynn1 said...

I wonder considering that Brendon isn't much more emotionally stable than Rachel if he would be comfortable sending a guy over to the jury house to live with the "love of his life."
If I had to bet I would guess he plans to nominate Britney & Ragan.
I wish he would nominate Hayden and Matt.

Anonymous said...

I am just so delighted that Rachel was evicted. I hope she does not return to the house. What Julie said had me wondering, though.

Rachel is by far my least favorite this season followed by Brendon and Matt.

I am afraid Brendon will target Britney and Ragan and Kathy and once again, Brigade will be sitting pretty with Matt gloating about what a genius he is.

Here's hoping Brendon goes next week or Matt goes next week once he loses that Diamond POV if he does not use it this week, no more chances.

Anonymous said...

which do you think the HG are more worried about re: getting nominated this week? Losing 500,000 or being the sole person stuck with Rachel for a week!? LOL

Anonymous said...

I am waiting for someone who has never been on the block to be nominated. If he goes with Kathy and Brit, nothing interesting there as they have been on the block. It would be more interesting if it was 2 Brigade members as neither would want to throw one another under the bus but might have to.

As I do believe Brigade wants out Ragan, Britney, Kathy but without getting their hands dirty and Brendon can do that for them..unfortunately.

This house will soon be nothing but a bunch of guys and boring. As I would not be surprised if Brit goes this week, then it will be Kathy or Ragan. I hope Brendon and Matt both go soon.

Laurie said...

LOL ... the only person who would want to be stuck with Rachel for a week is the only sure not to get evicted. Kind of funny, eh?

That is funny, Laurie!

I really pity whoever does get stuck with her.

My best guess is that they were forced to wait up for Brendan's HOH showing.

RBennie said...

No way is Matt using that veto unless he needs to save himself. The best scenario for him is for Ragan to be on the jury. It's a sure vote for him as long as his hands are clean re Ragan's eviction. Will the Brigade be pissed that he didn't tell them about the veto - definitely. They may not act like it to him, but they will be pissed and will hold it against him. I would love to see Brendon nominate Matt and Ragan. If he's thinking game play, it will probably be Matt and Britney though, because they can win comps. I'm scared for Brit this week. She thinks she has people in her corner, but she really doesn't.
