Big Brother 12 - POV Show Blog Party Post - August 25

big brother,jackiestvblog

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.

Brendon won POV. Matt is on the block.

Made it home just in time. Hi Jackie and everyone...

monty924 said...

That's right... we have to watch the Road Cone tonight. I'll have to mute it. ;)

ORKMommy said...

Poor Enzo :-(

Did he think he should be able to go through the whole season and never be nominated?

Laurie said...

Argh! Thanks for the warning, Monty. I'm heading home from work now and will ff thru that part when I watch the show in 3 hours.

Oh, by the way, we are having a heat wave in SoCal these days so I don't expect you will be seeing the hamsters in blankets and sweatshirts!

monty924 said...

Well now. It appears that Hayden and Lane had every reason to want Brendon to win PoV so that they could BD Matt. Not that I didn't already know that, but BB/CBS just made it obvious to the non-spoiled.

Lisanne said...

Monty why did you have to remind me that Jesse was gonna grace us with his "awesomeness" (gack) once again. And here I was enjoying my Wednesday night.

Lisanne said...

Hayden and Lane may not be much at the comps, but they sure are good at keeping heir hands clean in this game.

Sharon S said...

Handcuff to the houseguest of their choice? He chose Brit?!

Lisanne said...

$5000 is more money than he made in the last 2 years?

Was I ever that young?

Joe in NY said...

Hi folks!

sandaroo1 said...

I don't understand why matt threw the HOH competition?? That was his demise.

monty924 said...

Sorry to be the pooper of the party. :) At least we get to see Britney spare with him. Sounds like she got in quite a few Zings of her own on the RC.

Joe in NY said...

Anon 4:27.

Great BB players of the past did NOT play on emotion. You may be right, these guys all suck as BB players but I don't think so. Enzo and Hayden are NOT playing on emotion. If they were, Hayden might have gone on the same silly tirade that Brendon did when they voted out his girlfriend, Kristen.

Ragan and Brendon are definitely playing on emotion...not great players.

Britney is not playing on emotion that I can see. She could be swayed.

monty924 said...

sandaroo1, the BB announcer was correct. He got too cocky.

JimmyB said...

Hayden won't even look out for his buddy. He takes over for Enzo as most useless.

Jackie said...

I earned 2700 in 1972 working part time and going to college.

Joe in NY said...

sandaroo1,

Do we know that Matt threw the HOH comp or just made it seem that way when he got it wrong? After all, he's so arrogant and so vested in his self-annointed genius status that he might have been embarassed.

sandaroo1 said...

Matt did get to cocky...I liked him initially, not so much anymore!

monty924 said...

Rest of your life, Brendon? You mean as long as it lasts you!

JimmyB said...

Brendon earned this.

Joe in NY said...

That is actually a good choice (Britney)...it got brendon into the HOH suite, prevented other players from talking privately to the HOH, gave him a chance to "bond" with the HOH...and she's definitely prettier than the other hgs.

Btw, isn't the shave or dye pink kind of sexist? I mean, why couldn't Britney also shave her head? Would they have let Brendon dye his hair pink? I mean, big deal, the dye washes out eventually.

Lisanne said...

But $2700 in 1972 translated into 2010 dollars.....

Joe in NY said...

Yes, Jackie but that was 1972. Minimum wage was like $2 back then. Now it is over $7. To make $5000 you only have to work 720 hours over 2 years! That's less than 7 hours per week.

sandaroo1 said...

Hmmmmm....something to think about Joe from NY !! Your probably right. Poor Britney, a wasted HOH!!!

monty924 said...

I don't like Enzo much, but I <3 the penguin. :)

Joe in NY said...

LOL. Your pal Matty took all the prizes, Enzo.

Joe in NY said...

Definitely makes it seem like it's 4 on 3.

JimmyB said...

And Hayden called Matt the head of the snake.

Lisanne said...

So could Ragan not see the lightbulbs? He was facing the cages.

ORKMommy said...

I love how Enzo is all mad at Matt for "taking prizes" when he doesn't know who did it. Why didn't Enzo look to Lane or Hayden to help save him and beat Brendon?

monty924 said...

Britney is 100% correct. They all used her. Big time!

Anonymous said...

Brittany Mistake #: Putting Matt up. Now she's the main target, when it would have been Brendon and Matt. If Matt stayed, Brendon would have targeted him over her, with the help of the Brigade.

monty924 said...

Told everyone that a long time ago.

Joe in NY said...

How can his loyalty be straight with the Brigade when he's backdooring Matt? Oh Lane, you are soooo in Denial. Your loyalty is with the MLB.

Brittany Mistake #2: Being a stereotypical woman and letting the guys sweet talk her into blinding herself.

"You've got to understand that I'm Lane"---and she smiles? o_O

ORKMommy said...

Ok all you Matt haters...

True, Matt has lied to everyone in the game. We just saw Hayden & Lane do the exact same thing. Do you hate them now too?

Joe in NY said...

Actually, wouldn't much matter who Britney put up once Brendon saved himself. If she put up Ragan, she's a target for Matt and Ragan. If she puts up Lane or Hayden, she's a target of the Brigade. Once Brendon won POV, she was out of good options and she seemed to know it.

Lisanne said...

ORK,

Yes they lied. But not about a fake disease.

Jackie said...

That was my point ... 1972, part time earning more than Hayden now.

JimmyB said...

I believe Matt's lies were to cover his own a$$; Hayden and Enzo's were to bury Matt. Just makin' ORK's case.

Joe in NY said...

ORKMommy,

I don't hate Matt for lying, I hate him for being skeevy. He's not even a good liar, everyone always knows he's lying with the exception of the wife lie and even then Andrew for one felt it was a lie. Unlike the $1 Pandora's Box, however, no one is going out on a limb to call him a liar on the wife lie.

Sydney said...

*Jackknife*

Latecomers feel the need to make a big splash-ie

Say Whaaa -- I have no problem manipulating Brittany to get what I want? awww LANE!!! And we thought you were a nice guy.

monty924 said...

Hide your eyes and ears. Her comes Jesse!!!

Sydney said...

Shield your eyes people. We're about to see....

Anonymous said...

People say Enzo isn't playing the game but he very much is! He is playing the role of Mob Boss. He developed his mob early on in the game. Everyone knows the Boss doesn't do anything but call the shots and wave his hand. That's what Enzo's been doing. What he says, the Brigade does, If anyone crosses him (Matt, Brit) he uses his swagger and influence to get his henchmen to go after them. He sits pretty looking like he doesn't do anything but really by doing nothing (and letting others do his dirty work) he's doing a lot. Meow Meow

Joe in NY said...

I'm sorry, I still find Jessie kind of funny.

Anonymous said...

holy sh#t!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joe in NY said...

And, by the way, is Jessie not a good sport for being the "bad present"

Brittany Mistake # 3: Opening Pandora's Box.

If the surprise can be either good or bad and two people have already gotten a good prize, why would the third one be another good one. I'm sure BB told Jessie to douche it up.

JimmyB said...

Uh. Jesse. Is. An. Ass.

Jussayin'.

Sydney said...

This is actually really funny.

Lisanne said...

Jesse commits shirtacide once again

monty924 said...

Well crap! They didn't show any Zings from Britney. Darn it!

JimmyB said...

Joe--I'm laughin' to myself...we seem to disagree on everything!

Joe in NY said...

Britney kills me....

Anonymous said...

brittany' getting the shaft every which way tonight.

JimmyB said...

Britney has shown herself to be one of the brightest lights of the season. She IS funny.

monty924 said...

Britney is a hoot in the DR with Brendon.

Anonymous said...

I AM PEEING MYSELF

this is great

Joe in NY said...

That's too bad, JimmyB, because you know I'm a certified Super Genius. Says so right on my Ph.D. ;)

sandaroo1 said...

Britney has had the worse HOH week ever!!!

JimmyB said...

It's okay...turns out I'm wrong. We certainly agree on Britney.

Anonymous said...

a few weeks ago, Brittany was annoying and a backstabber with her befriending and de-friending Rachel and such, now everyone thinks she's the "brightest light" of the house.

Joe in NY said...

That was actually a good plan by Matt, but because he's so skeevy his execution sucked. That's where all his stupid little lies hurt. None of the MLB actually trusted him.

ORKMommy said...

So, it's okay to lie to bury someone else in the game but it's not okay to lie to put yourself in a better position? I'm not saying Matt lied well, or that I agree with his lies but at least he wasn't throwing his "friends" under the bus with his lies!

Joe in NY said...

Anon.

I always liked Britney, even though I felt (and still do) a little dirty in doing so because she is mean. But she's hot so it's OK. LMAO

Anonymous said...

do you really think i have the brain power for that??????
on my god, this is priceless

Joe in NY said...

ORK,

I have no problem with Matt lying, even the big lie about the wife. I just find him skeevy and arrogant and annoying.

ORKMommy said...

I always liked Britney too. She did go way over the top with Monet but since she left I haven't really had a problem with her at all. I'm kind of a "mean girl" too! :-)

Sydney said...

I watched the first chum on BBAD and watched Matt have a huge, long talk with Hayden, kissing his arse so much -- shifty eyes, etc. He was so not sincere looking it was uncomfortable to watch. I give Hayden credit to be able to remain in the convo and not show in his face how dishonest what Matt was saying....

Anonymous said...

What I love about BB is the micro demonstrations of human nature due to the circumstances of the game. The Janelle/Kaysar season with the divide of the house/nerd herd worship of Eric (Cappy) and now this season with the Mob Boss Enzo (Meow Meow) and his quest to protect himself by destroying one of his own and getting his mob to do it! The hits been put out on the Snake.

sandaroo1 said...

I agree, I didn't like Britney when Monet is in the house but I thin shes a hoot now!

JimmyB said...

I always liked her, too; which definitely included her little bits of nastiness. I thought they were very funny. I do think she's blowin' it now, tho.

Sydney said...

Anon 8:36 ITA about Enzo. He's very much playing the game. He has managed to be on good terms with everyone, he set up the brigade -- hand picked them each, right at the beginning. He has seemed the most honest in the house, even with Brittany just now.. and he's comic relief.

Anonymous said...

did i just miss something. wasnt everyone trying to get rid of matt so why did brittany tell regan they are gunning for him?

Anonymous said...

No, If Brit put hayden or Lane or even Ragan up instead of Matt, if the others were smart, they'd go after Matt. Matt is a good player and they'd see him as having gotten away with another week, thus making him a bigger and smarter target for everyone (Brigade and Brendon) than Brittany. If Brit kept Matt she'd be safe. Obviously Matt wouldn't go after her just for putting up Ragan when the Brigade's after him and the Brigade'll be dumb to go after her vs Brendon or Matt. Her only concern would be Brendon and she's pretty good at sweet talking her way out of his aim of fire.

Joe in NY said...

anon,

Britney was trying to tell Ragan that he was the other option. For some reason, she couldn't bring herself to say Matt's name.

Lisanne said...

I think she was trying to soften the blow that Matt is throwing him under the bus.

Sydney said...

Lisanne, I missed that -- who said $5000 is more $$ than what they made in the last two years?

Joe in NY said...

With the double elim tomorrow, I'm surprised they haven't shown more of the aftermath of the Matt nomination this week.

sandaroo1 said...

I think shes blowing now too. Matt should have pushed for Hayden to go up since they were going to vote him out last week & Britney is just buying anything Lane has to say!! how does she not see the Brigade alliance??

ORKMommy said...

Ya know... If I ignore all references of Rachel...and forget about why Brendon is fighting so hard to stay in the house I can actually feel sorry for him. He really is the underdog now and I almost want to root for him. But then he talks about Rachel and I just...can't...do it!

Anonymous said...

thanks joe and lisa

Sydney said...

Brittany really doesn't have allies in the house --or jury votes if Lane is more for the Brigade than Brit. At least he could have said he was torn.

Matt is not her ally. And Ragan is, though he'd vote for Matt before her if necessary, but I hope now he sees the error of that.

She could have tried to make a LARGE deal with Matt to not go up but he'd break the deal anyway.

Joe in NY said...

Chum buddies...LOL

Joe in NY said...

Right there, Matt just quit.

Sydney said...

Will be interesting when the time comes for the brigade to start to pick each other off.

Lisanne said...

Sydney,

It was Mr. "shave my head? no way" Hayden

Joe in NY said...

Whenever someone says that was a bad nomination by Brit, you've got to remember she doesn't know about the Brigade.

Even if she did, Matt is/was a member of the Brigade and the one she least trusted. It's still a good move. Once he threw Ragan under that much ballyhooed bus, game over. Matt can't be trusted and even if she knew about Lane, Enzo and Hayden, she still has to feel she can trust Lane more than Matt.

monty924 said...

Matt was only loyal to himself and the Brigade in the end and it will get him evicted. I'd say the week 3 HoH did him in.

ORKMommy said...

Britney is doomed! She can't get over her own emotions long enough to see that she doesn't stand a chance against the boys. She really needs to start thinking with her head and not her heart and put her differences with Brendon aside. I really think Brendon would align with her and Ragan if they went to him because even Brendon knows he can't completely trust Hayden & Enzo. Brendon made a huge mistake when he hooked up with Rachel but he's not stupid...

Joe in NY said...

Personally, I think most of them were done in by their obsession with Brenchel. I mean, seriously. Brit herself fell prey to it as late as this week with the Brendon nomination.

The MLB is playing without emotion which is why they are still in the game. I've been saying for weeks that Brit/Ragan/Kathy et al should have tried working with Brendon but they were just sooo obsessed with getting him out.

Almost perfect numbers for the MLB. 3 out of 6.

monty924 said...

ORK, I agree with you on Brendon. He's been much better to tolerate since Rachel has been out of the house. I feel sorry for him too... until he mentions HER!

Anonymous said...

Joe,

It's not about who you trust, but what's going to further your stay in the game. The Brigade, for instance, didn't trust matt as far as they could throw him, but they kept him for a while and he won comps for them and kept them in the game-(until Enzo got put up and they needed to depense of him). Brit doesn't have to know about the Brigade to know that the boys would go after him seeing as how they were the ones coming to her and petitioning for Matt to go up. She should have saw that as her opportunity. Put up Hayden and everyone would blame Matt.

monty924 said...

Anon 903,

Good point. Matt in the game left the target off of Britney.

Joe in NY said...

Actually, the key is to survive the second elimination. With a short time frame, Ragan really needs HOH or he might be the automatic nominee by everyone.

Once they've got 5, the Brigade may hang tough but allliances don't matter much. The HOH and POV holder control the final 5 and final 4. If, for example, Brendon won HOH in the final 5, he can't be nominated which means one of the Brigade must be. If a non-Brigade member wins POV then there must be two Brigade members on the block and only one Brigade vote.

Anonymous said...

Matt's saving his Brigade reveal for his eviction speech, during which he may also reveal the lie about his wife. It worked for Andrew.

Joe in NY said...

Anon,

Slight flaw in your logic. If she gets Hayden voted out, she takes the bulls eye off Matt and puts it on herself. Nominating Matt was the only nomination that didn't annoy anyone in the house. Ragan was onboard because Matt betrayed him and the boys all wanted it. Nominate anyone else except Ragan and then the boys are after her.

Joe in NY said...

Um, anon, it didn't work for Andrew...he went home.

Anonymous said...

Actually Joe, I think that's where we'd disagree.

Putting up Hayden would definitely piss off Lane and Enzo, but if they play smart they'd save going after her and target Matt because he's a better player and much bigger threat. At this point in the game they'd have to play it smart versus playing for revenge. They could easily go after Brit another week, but Matt's too smart and too sneaky. It's just like Rachel, Brendon and Kathy. People wanted them out ASAP, but they each stayed as long as they did because there were smarter moves to be made. If you're thinking revenge, Brit would be the target, but if you're thinking what's the best move for me to win, Matt would have been the target. Plus, Brit had the stronger players on her side - Ragan, Matt and possibly Brendon over the weak, no comp winning Enzo and Lane.

meb said...

Lisanne, no one answered your question that I saw about Ragan seeing the lights. He made the announcement that he would be officiating from inside the house so no one could see who won what.

ORKmommy, I'm with you... I start to like Brendon and then he mentions you know who and I want to gag again.

I'm so disappointed in Lane. I thought he was the good guy. How could he hug Brit in the HOH room after he just fed her a load of bull. I still hope before eviction that Brendon, Brit and Ragan get together and form an alliance, save Matt to join them and leave Lane and Hayden in there alone to be picked off.

Come on Britney...you've played the game before... get you head on straight and think what you need to do!

Go Brit!

Anonymous said...

I meant Joe's reveal of the Hayden Showmance flipped the house upon his departure. Matt's reveal of the Brigade may do the same, which is why he may be saving the reveal for then.

Anonymous said...

**Andrew's reveal****

Joe in NY said...

Anon,

Britney can't know that or rely on that. She is the comp queen, they might prefer to oust her and contend with Matt. I'm not saying it's 100% either way, but based on what she knew that was as good a move as nominating Hayden. She had the same basic problems either way: she has no alliance and she's a big target because of her comp success.

The way it played out, she still has Ragan and she has promises (for what that's worth) from Brendon and Enzo and the boys. If she ousts Hayden, she has no promises (for what that's worth) from any of the boys and she still can't trust Matt who just offered up Ragan to save himself.

I don't think there's any strategic advantage to either position. BUT, the promise you can least trust is Matt's so I think that makes the Matt move a slightly better bet.

Joe in NY said...

Andrew's reveal upset the house, although they were still targeting Brenchel so I'm not sure it upset too many people. It got Kristen booted, but that was about it. But, most importantly, it didn't save him so not very helpful to Andrew's game. I would think Matt would prefer to save himself rather than simply screw up someone else's game after he left. It would be a mistake to wait until the last minute, no one ever changes their vote then. He should spring it tomorrow morning and let it play all day. If he can flip Brendon then maybe Britney decides to go with Matt.

Anonymous said...

NO

Matt knows he's going home, I'm not saying he'll reveal the Brigade to stay in the house, just to shake things up before he leaves! no strategy just to leave with a bang. I'm betting it will happen.

ORKMommy said...

Ok Joe - Going with your theory about the promises...

If Brendon gets HOH, he nominates Ragan and Brit?

If a Brigade member gets HOH, he nominates Ragan and Brendon?

If Ragan gets HOH, he nominates Brendon and a Brigade member?

How do you see this playing out?

BJ said...

Matt will tell Ragan before he leaves, just so he can show he is still calling the moves in the house.

Anonymous said...

I'm so disappointed in Lane. I thought he was the good guy. How could he hug Brit in the HOH room after he just fed her a load of bull.

Brit did the same thing to Brendon.
Brit obsession on getting Brendon voted out, is why she couldn't focus on anyone else!
I hope Brendon back-stabs her just the same.
I believe Brit would lie to Brendon again, it's not because it's a game, it's an obsession, anytime someone is overly obsessed on getting rid of someone, they're no longer playing the game!

Ed

Joe in NY said...

I'm not sure, ORK. It depends on how Brendon really feels about the MLB and whether he can trust them.

If Brendon gets HOH, he may nominate Ragan and Brit but he might nominate Ragan and a Brigade member or even two Brigade members if Matt blows up the Brigade this week.

Again, if a Brigade member gets HOH, he may nominate Ragan and Brendon. But it may depend on which Brigade member. Lane thinks (rightly?) that he controls Britney so he wouldn't nominate her. But Enzo and Hayden might nominate her for the same reason Enzo/Lane wanted Kristen out.

If Ragan gets HOH, he nominates Brendon and a Brigade member. This I think is definite. Although, again, if Matt blows up the Brigade then maybe Ragan decides to work with Brendon. But Ragan seems to emotional a player to be able to bury his dislike of Brenchel to do it.

How do you see this playing out?

ORKMommy said...

I think you're right. It depends on whether Matt outs the Brigade or not. If he does then I think Brendon would nominate two of them and after the smoke clears he'll try to make a deal with Brit and Ragan. He's smart enough to know they would have the numbers.

I think it's a given that Brit would be a nom if Enzo or Hayden get HOH. I don't think Lane would nominate her but the other two would in a heartbeat!

Ragan would just do exactly what we said. He's so predictable!

chris said...

brit was screwed when lane told her to backdoor matt.
she knew right then and there that they would not fight for pov and she was right.
they forced her hand to put matt up and at the same time putting her in a bad spot this week, not being able to play for hoh.
i think her tears were based on that realization.
matt did not out the brigade to her, and threw ragan under the bus, to move on with the brigade, or so the editing seemed.
however matt did push for an enzo or hayden nom.
matt unfortunately came across as insincere and that was his demise.
the beginning of the end of the brigade was the week he was up with dpov and enzo and hayden let him know he was toast and lane would stay. all trust broke then
now i hope brendon wins hoh, brit pov and then the scrambling tomorrow will be fabulous.
agree with you again joe in ny

pat rw said...

matt=whiner
lane=duh, but winner
brendon=needy,crybaby
ragan=complainer
hayden=soft, very liked, duh
enzo=clueless,weak
britney=blinded, once hoped she would win, not now...

thanks jackieeeeeeeeeeee...

Anonymous said...

Everyone seems to forget that everyone in the house has been after Brendon, so why is it you feel now that they will all go after Britney. I feel if Brendon doesn't win HOH of Pov he's going home for sure. I know the Brigade would rather he go home next.

monty924 said...

Their practice equipment in the Back Yard is the giant flip board and a series of blocks. Just like the HoH that Jesse won last season, or was it S10?

It's either POV or HoH. I think it will be an HoH quiz and the flip thing the POV. What a crap shoot!!!!

monty924 said...

I don't know about Ragan not working with Brendon at this point. Ragan know about the Brigade, not factually but he has it figured out in his mind. I think he would work with Brendon to break up the Brigade.

Problem is, will he learn about the Brigade in time for tomorrow's DE? If Matt outs them at the last minute, Ragan, Brendon and Britney may not think fast enough on their feet to win HoH and then bust up the Brigade. I don't know... LOL

Anonymous said...

I agree with Anon 9:32 Ed, Britney has been playing with her emotions based on her obsession with getting Brendon out of the house, that's exactly what going to take her down, playing with her mean heart instead of her mind, someone else said just what I feel also, I hope she goes next. What if everyone knew how she was talking when Monet was in the house, chances are she would have gotten treated just like Brendon, people seem to have just forgotten all about that and jumped on her bandwagon, I'm not saying I was into the Brenchal love fest, infact I was soooo glad to see Rachel go but Britney just wouldnt let go of her dislke for Brendon. she lied to him twice so I hope he lies to her and put her butt up.

monty924 said...

Matt and Ragan were in the cabanna room and Matt was laying the ground work for Ragan to work with Brendon, and possibly out the brigade later tonight or tomorrow afternoon. this could get really interesting in the next 20 hours or so.

Matt is practicing just as hard as the others on the flippy thing. Nice sign... I likey! :)

monty924 said...

LOL, and now Matt is coaching and helping both Ragan and Brendon. Oh, he's finally thinking now.

Go Pool Boy!!!

Anonymous said...

I think in the end, Britney saw Matt for who he is...a jerk. I think they are better off getting Matt out over Brenden. That can come next, even though he's a good comp player.

Although they played Britney, I did chuckle when Hayden decided to take a few prizes. Sorry, I like him. You can play your heart out in this game and still lose, I can understand his wanting to win a few prizes.

OMG - Jesse! Why Jesse? Poor Britney, she got zonked twice.

I'm anxious to see their faces when they find out it's double elimination. I do think Matt will go home, but I really want to find out who gets HOH and who they put up. Ought to be a very interesting and eventful TH night. I just do not know how they are going to get everything shown in one hour. Ugh.

Hayden is a college student. My college students don't earn money. It's a recession. Let people with families to support make money. They make about $1500 each in jobs that give them the experience of working.

Anon-MA said...

I had to work and missed the show tonight -- all your comments made me sorrier! Sounds like good show. Can't wait for tomorrow night!!

Matt finally comes to see the light and starts working the house?

If they don't vote Enzo out I don't see how there is any chance someone other than a MLB wins the whole game. Isn't Matt the guy you really want to take to F2 with you? I don't see him besting anyone in a final. (I don't know if I can keep watching Matty-hands-in-pants until the end though).

If I were the master puppeteer Enzo would go now and then put up Matt and Lane/Hayden for DE and Matt goes home. That leaves 2 brigade boys.

Thanks for all the updates Jackie!

Jackie said...

I had to work to pay my way through college (along with minor scholarship $). So I got the experience of working and going to school at the same time.

Oy!

Jennasmom said...

Justene,
I'm still up! I live in the central time zone, but don't get to watch it until after my little one goes to bed for the night. So I always miss the party here, too. I just finished watching on tivo & just now getting to check in with the comments.

Jackie said...

Anon-MA - They all still believe Matt's lie about his wife and he could possibly get sympathy votes for her health needs.

Jennasmom said...

Hi, Jackie! How's it going? Tell Vincent hi for me!

Jackie said...

Telling him hi is easy as I'm trapped under him. Typing not so easy.

Justene said...

Jackie! I worked 3 jobs in college and worked through law school but now? The twins are sophomores. I have trouble sending them out to take a job when jobs are scarce. One of the twins lost a roommate already because her financial aid fell through. That girl will be working just to pay tuition.

If Hayden has a way to be a student without working, I totally support that decision.

ML said...

I'm not sure if I missed it, or it was on the live feeds which I don't have, but did Matt ever actually tell Brit to put up Ragan, or did he just have the brigade members tell her? Didn't she ever question why Matt didn't tell her directly? Does she just blindly believe them?

Also, although I do like Britney and think she is quite funny, karma is a bitch. She is so upset about being used and no one trying (except Enzo because it's his bird butt on the block) to win POV, yet last week she had no qualms about looking straight into America's eyes and saying she would do or say anything to not go on the block and that she never had any intention of keeping her word to Brendon.

Your description of being trapped under Vincent and not being able to type that easy is a lot like my existence. That's my baby girl to a tee. She's nine years old now and recently discovered that she can lay to the left of my keyboard and completely take it over. Ugh. She hits keys that I have to keep deleting while I try to post. :)

ML, Matt didn't outright tell Britney to Ragan up, but he was pushing it in a subtle way. If she would distrust Lane, she would have figured it out. She was actually close around the PoV re-nom time though. If Matt hadn't worked so hard from his end to put Ragan in her head, he would have been good. He should have made a deal with her, but he still had that DAB in his mind. Dumb move Matt. :)

Still hoping for something exciting to happen tomorrow. I would love to see Ragan win HoH in the first comp tomorrow night, and Britney win PoV. That gives them both a little time to rethink their strategy. If Brit wants to go far, she needs the Brigade out of there.

Thanks Monty. It looks like Britney's blind trust of Lane may be her downfall. Once he tells her something, she thinks 'he can't possibly be lying to me' because all 98 pounds of her could certainly hurt him bad @@.

So true, ML. The "I will kill you" was earlier this weekend, but she is definitely being snowed by Lane.

A lot of folks here thought Lane had her back from the CBS edit, but I never thought he had her back. She will be one PO'ed girl when she see's this season back or when she hears her family tell her what was really going on.
