Big Brother 12 - Nominations Episode Blog Party - August 22

big brother,jackiestvblog

Welcome back my friends
To the show that never ends

I'm glad you could attend,

Step inside, step inside ...

-- Emerson, Lake and Palmer from the "Brain Salad Surgery" album

The show is about to start here on the East Coast. 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.

Enzo, Brendon and Hayden are the Have Nots.

After much thinking, she put Brendon and Enzo on the block.

hi everyone one! rain is falling here in the ny area -jeannemarie

Petals said...

I can't believe Jessie called Britney fat. I used to like him.

Sharon S said...

Hey everyone! It's been awhile since I could watch live with you, and I'm excited to be back!

Merrilee said...

Welcome back Sharon!

Petals said...

Hey Sharon

Petals said...

Dig in: I brought a tray of tiny pigs in blankets and baby quiches. I am drinking champagne from the bottle, cuz I forgot glasses.

Lisanne said...

Britney fat? So what is thin? A coat hanger?

Jesse blech

Joe in NY said...

Hi everyone,

Don't like Matt...

Ragan, seriously, why are we still obsessed with Brendon...

Joe in NY said...

Hi Petals

xoxoxo

joyn said...

Matt's stinko hand went from his pants to the backs of Hayden and Enzo. I think Matt knew exactly what he was doing when he was doing it. Ewww!

Sharon S said...

Hi everyone, thanks for the warm welcome back. Much nicer than Rachel's reception in the house! ;)

JimmyB said...

I actually think that Matt's pretty funny. Enzo's been 100% useless. HE told Matt he's goin' home? No, I don't think so. Hayden told him.

Petals said...

{{{Joe}}}

Becky said...

Hey, everyone. Jackie, great coverage in your writeups.

Petals said...

Enzo without a hat looks like a...chemo patient.

Petals said...

I like Britney, and I like Hayden. Brendon is a woman,even moreso than Ragan. Brendon is the REAL 40 yr old crying at Oprah!

Becky said...

Regan is going to feel like such a fool when he finds out Matt's "illness" was a fake.

Petals said...

That is a scary pageant picture.

JimmyB said...

I'm with Lane on that one.

Joe in NY said...

there is something kind of homely about Nick's boyfriend...which gives hope to us homely guys everywhere! :)

Petals said...

*passing my champagne Joe*

Joe in NY said...

Enzo not very good at hiding his emotions....

Becky said...

I meant Matt's wife's illness. Been away too long.

Petals said...

Eek. I can't get past Enzo's hair/not hair. Looks like an old doll that some kid pulled half the hair out of.

Merrilee said...

They are sure trying to do damage control. Never apologize makes you look weaker.

monty924 said...

Hello Petals and All! Late again... lol

Merrilee said...

Hi Monty!

joyn said...

Matt calling Enzo shady. Look who's talking.

Sharon S said...

I got thrown out of the pool! (3 brown-outs, but I think it's over now).

I wish there was a better picture of Nick -- he looks like an ugly version of Lane in that one!

Petals said...

Hey Monty! I brought baby pigs in blankets & baby quiches.

Jackie said...

The show went 16 minutes before the first commercial break and the majority of that was recap

Petals said...

Ouch Sharon! Don't get electrocuted.

monty924 said...

Britney said they were both drunk and sweaty/late at night when that pic was taken. I'm sure he's a cutey. :)

Sharon S said...

thanks Petals; I am more worried about my cable going out before the show is over! ;)

joyn said...

Lane is an ape! Whoa!

monty924 said...

Lane is adorable!!! meow

Anonymous said...

a little out of sequence with the hoh room! -jeannemarie

joyn said...

'Ol Matt may have some latent tendencies lurking insde.

JimmyB said...

Brendon, you little girl--You'll vote how ever rachel tells you to vote.

Joe in NY said...

Why is it hard to believe what Brendon says? He's a drama queen and a bit of an ass, but I don't recall him lying very much at all in this game...am I forgetting something? He almost nominated Britney but then didn't...

monty924 said...

What Britney doesn't know is that EVERYONE was throwing her under the bus last week. Who do you want to trust? The devil you know, or the devil you don't know?

Petals said...

Jimmy, thanks. I had almost forgotten the pretzel message. That really was unfair.

monty924 said...

Hey, those pigs in a blanket are great. Thanks! :)

monty924 said...

Ye'haw... Food Comp!

JimmyB said...

Petals...I've thought that all along. He's got a one track mind.

Petals said...

Lane is in Cowboy heaven

monty924 said...

ROFL, Ragan!

JimmyB said...

Ragan kills me. Funniest HG EVER!

Petals said...

LMAO @ Ragan. "down to my birth weight", funnY!

Petals said...

hahaha..poor Lane.

Sharon S said...

the "real Rodeo Rachel is made of silicone...."

Love Ragan's comments tonight/

Petals said...

Brendon is gonna NEED a shot (of penicillin) after being with Rachel.

Anonymous said...

hey all....i think i'm going to be on the toilet for a week!!!!!!

Joe in NY said...

Ragan just recycled his Rachel rant from their fight. Out of new ideas, Ragan...I'm more sick of him than I am of Matt.

Petals said...

Joe, no! Ragan is funny! Brendon is just a pathetic tool.

Sharon S said...

What's wrong with recycling Joe?! :)

Petals said...

Broccoli OR bean dip will make all of them funky monkeys

Joe in NY said...

The DAB might be the best/worst alliance ever. They kept their existence a secret forever, BUT they managed to win just about nothing except for Matt's 2 HOH's. They did nothing with the first one and spent the rest of the time targetting poor dumb Brendon and Rachel. Then, at the first sign of discomfort completely turned on each other. LMAO!

JimmyB said...

Brendon is this season's Janelle.

Except everyone liked her.

Oh...And she was smart and didn't need a Skankectomy.

joyn said...

I also think Ragan's humor is getting to be old news. He can be a very mean-spirited guy.

Joe in NY said...

Sharon S.,

Nothing wrong with recycling cans. You recycle your insults it just means that either:
A) You can't think of anything new to say, or
B) You are so effing proud of your lame ass self that you want to make sure that EVERYONE heard your little clever phrase.

He's mean, he's unbalanced, he's a poor sport, and I'm totally over him. He's Rachel with a penis, although her Adam's apple is bigger than his. He's probably wearing extensions in his pants.

Lisanne said...

I hate to say it but Lane is growing on me. Dinosaur or gun?

Becky said...

Joe, I am glad that I'm not the only one who is tired of Ragan. I think he is a very bitter biotch. I did not approve of his behavior with Rachael last week. She was out of line, but he was over the top vicious. To me a sign of maturity and character is NOT to sink to the level of trash.... and he failed.

Lane does crack me up. Talk about a "good ole boy", he has a lock on it.

Petals said...

Jimmy....LMAO. Skankectomy.

monty924 said...

Turn Coats!

Petals said...

Lisanna, I totally agree. His good ol boy charm is refreshing & cute.

monty924 said...

Blah, blah, blah........

JimmyB said...

I agree 'bout Lane. Good personality.

JimmyB said...

Then he'll compete with Brendon in the POV. Not a good argument, Brit.

Petals said...

Watch useless Enzo win the whole thing. That will be a grrrr.

Sharon S said...

Joe, you are absolutely right about the origin of Ragan's fixation on Rachel's silicone, etc. I am still amused by him though -- guess it comes from missing so many shows!

I wish Britney hadn't asked "who does the house want out..." Makes her look weaker than she should, I think.

joyn said...

Yeah, Britney. Don't put me up as a pawn. You're supposed to follow MY plan!

Lisanne said...

But by asking she is covering her bases. If the house turns on her, she can point out that it was their idea.

Petals said...

Usually gay men love pretty girls. Ragan saw that Rachel was not pretty, but a plastic Vegas blow-up doll.

JimmyB said...

I think Ragan felt a big anti-gay vibe from Rachel.

I think maybe he was right.

Joe in NY said...

Sharon, I agree about Britney. This whole season has been Brenchel vs. a house insistent on unanimity. No one wants to make a big move. There has been a lot less scheming and plotting and playing of the game...except for skeevy Matt and skanky Rachel. In a way, the rest of the house are ALL floaters sitting on the same rubber tire.

Joe in NY said...

JimmyB,

How can Rachel be anti-gay, she's a drag queen dressed up like Boy George?

JimmyB said...

I'll leace open the possibility that Rachel is not anti-gay...but just really, really, really stupid.

JimmyB said...

Joe--another possibility I didn't consider!

monty924 said...

Britney really struggled with the key wheel. She's no bigger than a minute and Jessie had the nerve to tell her she needed to lose weight. Go figure... Mr. Personality!

Joe in NY said...

Kind of agree with Brendon, Britney's rationale for nominating Brendon was lame...

monty924 said...

Not true... Brendon told Britney he was nominating her and BB made him redo it. You aren't allowed to tell...

Joe in NY said...

monty,

I think Jessie is talking about her muscles more than her weight...you know how he is. I think she's gorgeous (sorry Petals) but she doesn't exactly have washboard abs...

JimmyB said...

BB told brendon to change his nomination??

Petals said...

I am surprised that BB hasn't come up with a slicker version of the "key wheel". It is cumbersome and tacky.

Petals said...

s'OK. Joe. Britney IS gorgeous. xoxox

monty924 said...

OMG, Joe. Say it isn't so. Now you are defending Jesse the Road Cone. ;)

JimmyB said...

OT--Hawaii Five-0 looks NOTHING at all like the original show. I'm disappointed, frankly.

Sharon S said...

Petals, I've thought that many times. I think they need to "update" that beast!

Joe in NY said...

monty,

Brendon considered nominating Britney, in part because the entire Brigade (minus Lane) was suggesting it. But he didn't nominate her and he didn't backdoor her when he had the chance after Ragan won POV. He also was honest enough to tell her up front that he was going to nominate her, even though that was a BB rule violation. I still maintain that he's the most honest person still in the house...he's got other problems, but dishonesty isn't one of them.

Petals said...

I am excited about Survivor with Jimmy Johnson!

Joe in NY said...

LOL,

If you remember Monty, I defended Jesse last year. He's always been a tool but at least he kept things entertaining. And, after all, that is my only goal in watching BB.

Seriously, if you remove Brenchel isn't this the most boring collection of hgs ever? The rest of them do nothing but play pool, talk nice, and try to vote unanimously on everything.

Petals said...

Joe - I do agree with your assessment of Brendon. He isn't a snake, but he must have some personality issues if a soman he barely knows can take over his life like Rachel has. And he is a teacher, doesn't that skeeve YOU, in particular?

JimmyB said...

Joe---You're certainly right. I wouldn't have traded the combo of Rachel, Brendon for anything; but I'd havta include Ragan in the mix. I know you disagree, but I have really enjoyed him.

monty924 said...

And Ragan has spent the last hour trying to convice Britney of the truth. She said the entire house wants Matt out, and Ragan flat out told her that the entire house wants her out too.

All the truth. The devil you know or the devil you don't. Britney is screwed either way, but she has a better chance with Ragan than Lane. Lane will turn on her, Ragan the sainted will not... at this point now. IMO

Joe in NY said...

Remember "Pirate Ship" or whatever that show was called? They did nominations by giving everyone a letter and they all opened them together and the ones with a red mark in them were nominated. They could do something like that. I mean it's not like the wear the key around their neck all week anyway. They put it on for 2 minutes and then take it off, so why bother? I know it is all part of the "house" metaphor but it accomplishes nothing.

Joe in NY said...

LOL, Petals, he's not my teacher so why would that skeeve me?

Honestly, if I were Brendon, Rachel could run me around like that also. I'd be less prone to some of the crazy outbursts but we men are all a little whipped.

Petals said...

And remember when the HOH room was done alot better? Now it is like a 60s motel room, but with a personalized basket. I remember Janelle's HOH rooms were awesome, like something from Anna Nicole's show, LOL

Petals said...

Oh, Joe. No. You are too smart, you'd see right thru the glue on Rachel's false eyelashes.

Joe in NY said...

Thanks for the vote of confidence, Petals, but any woman who even pretends to be half interested in maybe someday having a cup of coffee with me can pretty much get me to do anything legal...

monty924 said...

Oh, the Pirate Master or something. Never watched it, and they cancelled it mid-season. Didn't someone on it committ suicide?

Petals said...

LOL Joe! And I thought you were playing "easy to get".

Joe in NY said...

Monty,

That's it: Pirate Master. Yes they did cancel it midseason and then later someone who had been on it did commit suicide.

It wasn't a great show, but it was pretty entertaining for summer fare.

Sydney said...

Late Splash!

I watched but couldn't comment. Been working all weekend on a project and just needed to get a break from the comptuere. We have Ragan as this year's crier.

Boy, it's getting hard to watch when he grimaces.

Joe in NY said...

Sorry to disappoint, Petals. I'm not playing easy to get, I AM easy to get...

Petals said...

Hey Syd! I finished the champagne, but there are little pigs in blankets & baby quiche.

Petals said...

U R Never a disappointment.
R U gonna watch JJ on Survivor?

monty924 said...

Catch you all later... I'm multi tasking and missing my second fav Sunday show. Drop Dead Diva.

See you tomorrow or later in the week.

Joe in NY said...

yes, although I was never much of a fan of JJ. But Survivor has always been my favorite.

monty924 said...

Jake the Snake/aka The Bachelor is on it tonight. Talk about someone who skeeves me!

Petals said...

Ciao!

Joe in NY said...

nite all

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

From feeds: this takes the cake! Britney and Ragan (in HOH) making fun of Brendon because he (gasp!) insisted on opening every door for her!

OMG! A gentleman!! The horrors!!!

meb said...

Hey Sydney... I couldn't get over here either. I didn't get to the show until 1/2 hour into it and that meant catch up from the DVR ...

I've pretty much read every comment here, and it almost appeared that no one was watching the show, just simply commenting. I loved them all though.

Lane was hysterical with his Beast show in the DR. He is cute. His denial that he looks like Britt's Nick and then they showed them side by side. They really do look alike... Lane is better looking though.

I wish Britt would wise up and try to get an alliance with Lane, Ragan and Matt (or Brendon if Matt goes home). Leaving Hayden and Enzo alone... they've done nothing to stay in the house ... neither has Lane, but I like his DR sessions. :)

Sydney said...

Joe, i think there's been plenty of planning and scheming in the house. If anything this season to me has returned to players who have some strategy. Meow Meow put together the brigiade to start with. Hayden led things for the first 4 weeks, then Matt became Mr. Evil Bwahaha and has become a very strong player, yes.

Brittany also was acting smart, especially when Rachel was HOH for the second time. The one who hasn't gotten much screen time has been Lane, who I was surprised was being such a floater.

Sydney said...

FA-- do you think they think he's just trying to butter her up (though he does have the -- SPOLIER ALERT FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE ONLY WATCHING THE SHOW and haven't read Jackie's last two posts -- POV) so he doesn't need to butter her up. But after his crying because he doesn't have any friends, I think he wants some.

But I think that is who he is in real life. Why he's after Rachel, I don't know.

Anonymous said...

I dont care who wins as long as MATT AND RAGAN go home first PLEASE, and now they can save room for Brittney too. She cant see the forest for the trees. I am so hoping for Brendon to win HOH and put her little butt up and in hopes of leading to her eviction.

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

Sydney, on a comparative basis, I'm thinking that Brendon is much less likely than anyone else in that house to be fake around others. I think he genuinly forgives when people hurt him, doesn't hold a grudge.

So, I think he was being genuine to Britney, he just wants people to like him and appreciate the things he does to help them. Nobody can deny that he's one of the biggest *doers* around the house, cooking and cleaning wise.

I think Brendon is a better person than most are giving him credit for.

Sydney said...

Agreed, though he has to have something in his history or background that makes him go for Rachel, and I worry for him, lol.

Anonymous said...

OMG, tonight was hilarious to me for some reason. Ragans cracked me up with the "down to my birth weight" comment and his Rachel comment. To me, Ragan is funny, not mean. Rachel was just pathetic.

Matt was funny when he was talking about his shirtless Hayden dream and gay showmance. THAT DR thing made me totally crack up actually.

Brendon is just such a weak-minded person and I originally had such high hopes for him. I just pray he gets a big wake-up call to Rachel because that chic is majorly wacked

oh, and Lane cracked me up. He is sooo crushing on Britney.

FA (Formerly Anon) said...

So right now Britney seems to want Enzo out rather than Matt.

But who would she put up in Brendon's place, even so?

I can't believe Matt is going to maybe survive another week!!

It doesn't seem that Brit yet knows that Hayden won the $5 and the Hawaii trip! Wonder if that will change her mind about who to put up?

Miss Allan said...

Brit should put Hayden up in place of Brendon...they will REALLY see who is with whom!

ritad said...

Poor Brendon, damned if he does damned if he doesn't. He has such a good heart, so easily forgives and all around nice guy and yet the mob mentality never lets up. I hope he knows he has many supporters when he gets off the show. Yes Some people appreciate good hearted, warm spirited people Brendon! Nothing weak about you! You've held your head high through all the constant back stabbing and still show more class then anyone.

ritad said...

The men looked pretty damn good in the cowboy gear too! LOL! Except Regan and Matt...yech..

Anonymous said...

Brenden's mistake is his devotion for that harpy Rachel. I don't see what he sees in her at all. Matt is obnoxious in so many ways but I'd rather see Hayden go up.

For a comment of left field, I'd like to see future BB have more of an age spread: 1/2 under 30 and 1/2 over. BB is getting 'lazy' and running a teeny bopper house for the most part. Better game play with a broader mix of people.
