Big Brother 12 - Live Feeds Into Thursday, September 2


Sigh.

Here are the late night and overnight events from inside that Big Brother House of Harried Hamsters:
  • The sigh isn't over Ragan's likelihood of leaving tonight.
  • It's over him analyzing himself and the season.
  • It's his own version of talking to the Internet.
  • But it's definitely not like when either Dr. Will or Evel Dick did it.
  • It's like he's on a psychiatrist's couch and we're the shrink.
  • I feel like spinning the hammock upside down.
  • Argh.
  • I really don't want to hear him go on about his father who passed away some time back. It's fine to touch on it, but do I really need a biography?
  • Britney said the show is getting the best ratings ever as per the diary room.
  • Really?
  • Hayden thinks Britney will have an advantage if the HOH comp is a quiz.
  • Yep, she will.
  • They're all asleep as I post this.

We have football and Big Brother here tonight. Oh My. I guess its bye bye Ragan

JimmyB said...

In Pa., we're still showing (on the guide) one CBS channel with a game & another CBS channel with BB at 8 p.m.

The one with the game at 8 p.m. doesn't even show BB on after midnight at all, so I'm hoping the other affiliate sticks with the schedule.

RyzandShyn said...

LOL, Jackie. I just got done commenting on the last thread about how it sounds like Ragan bought a ticket for the crazy train, and this post confirmed it.
It's too bad he let himself get so caught up in drama.
wv: oustaman - what the HGs will do to Ragan tonight.

I really want Ragan gone, however Lane needs to understand he does not have a chance in hell to beat Hayden. Britney was correct in telling him so, but of course she had on own agenda for saying it, this would probably be his only opportunity, it's risky for him because if he does it by having to break a tie, then he probably wont get his jury vote, so he should get Brit and Enzo to do his dirty work and let Hayden think that they betrayed him (Lane). That being said, I dont think I can take not even a minute longer listening to Ragan, go home aleady. He needs therapy just to understand why he can't let of the hatred he continues to carry for two people (Brenchal) that he hardly know, that has probably forgotten he really exist.

That's the same situation here in Michigan, On one CBS channel it's the football game of the other BB, with nothing after midnight.

JimmyB said...

Well...anon7:28, I'll just be happy if it's on, I guess. Havta give up the HD on this one though. I only get it on the game channel.

Mom use to say (all the time); beggers can't be choosers!

I hope the production staff has removed all sharp objects from the Jury house.
Once Ragan gets there he and Rachel may both go psycho.
If it is Hayden who goes this week I think he will be so angry that he might break things.

Laurie said...

Ragan clearly never heard one of my favorite expressions:

If you aren't paying rent then get out of my head!

He is his own worst enemy obsessing on this.

JimmyB said...

I'll guess that Ragan will probably behave in the Jury House. Their personalities get re-adjusted a bit once they're out; plus he'll have to deal with both Rachel and Brendon.

I think we saw the worst of both Ragan and Brendon in the house.

Rachel? Guessin' she's exactly as she appeared...sorry to say. And when she discovers Brendon with no money; he'll be history.

...I'd rather be watching the Jury House full time. CBS is missin' the boat.

lynn1 said...

Regardless of who leaves tonight I will be doing "The Happy Dance." I don't care for either one of them.

Justene said...

I cannot tolerate Britney. I used to be mildly irritated but she is just too much. She has lied threatened and cajoled and done none of it with the charm of Dr Will. Would she have gotten away with any of it if she weren't little and blonde?

Anonymous said...

It's funny to hear people talk about ratings because most of them have no real understanding of what the numbers represent.

I have a similar reaction when friends quote statistics.

And what's up with the Ragan Twitter verification? Was this before he came into the house? A celebrity?

The hamsters would do well to understand that celebrity is fickle at best.

Smilin' Bob from the Enzyte commercials is also a celebrity, and though they don't know his name, I bet more people would still recognize him before any of the HGs. Which says a lot about celebrity because John Larsen/Smilin' Bob has been missing since a boating accident in June 2008.

ORKMommy said...

Justene - I disagree about Britney not having charm. I think the reason she gets away with what she does is because she IS charming. She has that southern girl charm that the boys are just eating up. Very different charm than Will had but it's still charm.

Anonymous said...

Justene,

I agree with you on Brit. There is no way these guys would have listened to her if she weighed another 50 or so pounds. I'm not saying that that is fair, but I do think it's true.

I can't stand Britney or Regan. They are worse than Rachel ever was. Rachel at least come out into the open with her comments. These two always did it behind their backs. I think they both need major therapy.

Joe in NY said...

Frankly, the meanness is just endemic to the age. You have all these under-30s in the house, they are going to be self-absorbed and catty.

My students all grew up with the anonymity of the internet so they all feel safe in tossing little anonymous barbs. Not to sound even older than I am, but courtesy was the first casualty of the Information Age. I get dozens of student emails every day and, with the exception of the Asian students, most of them don't start with any address at all and they end with no signature at all. The text is always terse and sounds to my old ears as demanding rather than requesting.

Bottom line: I think the hgs accurately represent their age group in and out of the house.

Anonymous said...

I was told Britney was going on and on last night saying the producers told her this season has the best ratings ever on BB and that THEY ARE HUGE CELEBRITYS. That they beat out Jeff and Jordon.

Are you crazy?? These goof balls cannot be serious right?? They bug me more than any other season and I find most of them (especially the ones left in the house) very irritating.

Cha Cha said...

I agree with you Joe about the age range. These kids aren't doing anything different then kids not on tv are doing.

As far as the ratings this is a great year for BB. The show has killed it in there time slot every night they are on.
I personally think this is huge since this show has been on almost ten years and at anytime CBS could
cancel it. Just because Julie's husband is the boss at CBS doesn't mean they are immune to cancellation.
Now onto ~~~IMHO~~
On the game front I am sick of hearing about Rachel and Brendon but really what do they have to talk about.
At least Britney isn't trhowing around words and statements like Enzo. Some of his statements are homophobic and racist.
I would have voted for Enzo for the 25000.00 but there is no way now.
I think that Rachel will be a week or two removed from the game and she wont want to fight with Regan. I think that he may go into the JH with a chip on his shoulder. Hopefully he will have time to decompress from the game before entering Jury.
I really was glad last night when Lane finally said he wants Brit in the final two. Too bad it was in the DR.
If Brit gets to the final two with Lane i wouldn't be surprised if she actually pulled it out and won this game. In that case she deserves the win.

my wv- reffa
they may need a reffa-re once Regan enters the Jury House.

cha cha said...

BB is piping random facts into the house right now.
They just announced that Sweden is slightly bigger than california.

I think this means it wil definetly not be a physical comp tonight. Thats what Haydon and Enzo were hoping for.
If it has to do with these random facts its an open call as to who could win the HOH

Anonymous said...

OrkMommy,

I respectfully disagree with your comment that 'she gets away with what she does because she is charming.'

Right or wrong, young men (much less jocks) aren't known for drifting toward girls because they are funny, nice or charming. If Brit was unnattractive, how quickly would the guys have taken the time to get to know her? What would the HGs or posters reactions have been to an unnattractive girl going on and on about Rachel's looks or her relationship with Brenden? (I suspect the word jealous would have been used a lot.)

Everything else about Brit being equal, charm plays as big a role for her here as it did during her pageant days. Simply, there is no way she would even be in it without being attractive.
-Ben

Anonymous said...

After the earlier comment I was thinking that if Brit were unattractive, she probably wouldn't have been cast on BB anyway. But then how do you explain Rachel?

Anonymous said...

Joe in NY,

I agree with your comments. I have said as much myself elsewhere, but then I have to remind myself that every generation makes statements like these about the ones that follow.

-Ben

Anon-ma said...

I have to agree with those who say that Britney's 'charm' is her pretty face and good body.

Whether the ratings are great or not, BB has an interest in keeping the house guests pumped up at this point and also feeding them "news from the outside" which they are starving for.

Wonder if the info BB is pumping into the house (Sweden etc) is just to mess with them and see indifferent deals are cut based on HGs assessment of who is likely towin ne t HoH with that type of comp. Or am I giving BB (and the HGs too much credit?)

Joe, I agree about the behavior being typical of the age group. So sad. But also why BB should make 1/2 the house over 30. Completely different game.

Anon-MA said...

* if different, not indifferent. Sorry

"...But then how do you explain Rachel?"

They needed someone extremely immature, kinda ugly but thinks she's beautiful, self-absorbed (well--that's a requirement for everyone), super-shallow, interested in meeting other people (with money); and someone with more than one fake body part.

monty924 said...

I'm holding out hope that Ragan pulls something out of his hat before tonight. That is if he can overcome his hangover. He really tied one on last night.

Margo said...

****OT Other Pools****

I'm going to be lifeguard of the Survivor and Dancing with the Stars pools this season. If you wanna play just shoot me a note via email to igorsant@aol.com. I'll try to monitor and see if people post in the comments but it would be easier if you email me.

Laurie from the left coast is going to slip into her bikini and man the Amazing Race pool. She will give instructions on her participation rules.

Margo aka the Lifeguard

Anonymous said...

IMO Rachel has a bad personality, but if that were a requirement, she isn't the only houesguest that wouldn't have made the cut this season.

Not attractive? She is at least as good looking as other houseguests. She's also not the only houseguest to have had work done, or dye their hair.

Come on. Rachel has a crooked smile? Brit has a lazy eye. Ragan has an odd jawline. Kathy wore a bottle of eyeliner. Enzo has the hair of a baby bird. And Lane always looks like you just asked him a question about physics. And I myself write this knowing that I am not winning any beauty contests.

This is why it's funny that people make fun of Rachel. Some of the women are guilty of getting the same work done. And there is no way that after hearing some of the guys talk about their dating history that Rachel is someone they wouldn't approach if they didn't know her.

Talk about glass houses!

ORKMommy said...

I still maintain that she has charm that has nothing to do with her looks. I'm not sure where all of you live, but I've spent a good part of my life in GA and have seen the southern woman charm work with all kinds of women. Big, little, ugly, cute...doesn't matter.

I will agree that she wouldn't even be on the show if she wasn't little, cute and blond. That's been a beef of mine for years. They really need to be more diverse in their casting!

Margo said...

I think we should do a Jackie Blog edition.

We could have a showmance with Petals & Joe in NY,
I wanna be the b*tch.
We can have the jocks
Jimmy B
Brent McKee
The social game players
Sydney
MEB
RBennie
ORKMommy
ChaCha
JoyN
I don't know who wants to volunteer to be the gay player? I don't wanna guess that one.
The cooks
Laurie
Becky
Monty924
who else brings eats to the party??
This could be fun. Maybe we can play virtual BB this winter when nothing is going on. I'm sure we could do a much better job than the last time CBS tried.

Margo

How does Ragan have access to his twitter account to know he has to verify himself? (yes, I AM bored)

Ork mommy - WADR- Britney isn't really even southern belle charming. Give her a Boston/NY accent and 20 lbs and people would be calling her the same names as Rachel. She's blond, thin and pretty -- the trifecta.

joe
ragan is mid 30's!

***Off Topic TAR Pool***

I will be the Lifeguard for the TAR pool this season.

If you want to be in it, please email me at lifeguardlaurie@gmail.com and I'll put your name on the list.

The show starts Sunday 9/26. Deadline for the pool will be Friday 9/24 at noon California time. (Like we have our own time zone!)

This message will be repeated on future posts.

MARGO-----


I love it.
Me the social gamer.
Would you believe this is the only reality game show that I watch. I do watch alot of reality shows but not ones that you win money off of in the end. I have watched TAR and Survivor but not religously.
Alot of my friends used to make fun of me about BB but whenever they want a spoiler now guess who they come to.
i wouldn't even know about this site or jokers if it wasn't for "my man" or as he calls it cohabitational partner.(he says we are happily unmarried and its best that way). He found this site for me right after Hurricane Katrina because we had no electricity for a few weeks but i could use the internet.

Social Gamer I love it. You just made my day!!!!

Anonymous said...

OrkMommy-

My contention remains.

She's really not charming. And if she were less attractive or heavier, assuming she could even get on BB, she still wouldn't be where she is now.

It's not fair, but it's true.

For the record, I was born and raised in the south.

-Ben

cha cha said...

If memory serves Wamber was not that small of a girl. Come to think of it I do think she was the largest girl I remember on the show. talkig about weight here.
I personally didn't think she was that attractive.

I think that Britney is cute.
I wouldn't say she has gotten all this way with her southern charm. Its not all her charm. When some houseguests didn't want her in the game she did what she had to do win POV.
IMHO- I think that she is playing this game great. I was glad when she and Monet were seperated. Thats when I started to like her as a player.
Everyone in that house talked about someone else at one point or another. It wasn't all nice either with any hamster. Brit just has been vocal about it.
Has she beaten a dead horse about it? YES but they really are bored.
Imagine when(fingers crossed) she is in the final two and has to do the memory wall thing and talk about each evicted houseguest. I bet that will be funny

live feeds down. they are playing a game...wonder if its luxury?

RyzandShyn said...

I'll join in on Britney being successfully charming. I'll bet she cultivated it through the pagent circle and from her family. I like her and think she's also pretty funny. I think her petite blond pretty looks had a lot to do with her being cast as did her sports knowledge. They probably knew she'd fit in well with the jock boys they were casting.
I bet they figured Rachael and Brendon would be attracted to each other and Rachel would repel viewers.
I was reading a survey on BBDish where almost half the responses were a vote for Britney to get fan favorite money if there is any.

Here's a link to the east coast feed of the show tonight in case anyone is being pre-empted. The right side is a CBS station from Tampa Bay, the left side are some nice chatters who will answer any question you have.

ML said...

First of all Margo I'm disappointed I didn't even make the virtual BB cast. Wow, I must really be a loser lol.

I think that some here are calling Rachel ugly as a result of her character and actions on this show. Maybe that is warranted, but to repeatedly deride her for her looks is just mean. Even if she chose to do those things to herself (extensions, dyed hair, boob job), what abot ED (and many many others)? He chose to tat himself up like that and lead the hard partying lifestyle to make himself look like that. Did we go on ad nauseum about how awful he looked? AND he had an extremely ugly personality. Just as Ragan has to learn to let go of his animosity toward Rachel, we, too, need to take a breather on the Rachel looks bashing

I forgot to include all the anon posters in my Virtual BB. They of coarse will be lurking in the shadows of the BB house - kinda like the Saboteur.

RBennie said...

Like her or not, I don't know how anyone can say that Britney is not charming. Yes, she's very attractive and that certainly doesn't hurt, but even though she's very girly, she's also a guy's girl. She fits right in with the guys, talking sports, playing pool and telling tall tales. Even the guys who are itching to get rid of her (Hayden/Enzo) really like her.

RBennie said...

I love your virtual BB idea Margo! I'm sure you know to include me in the pools.

monty924 said...

Love it, Margo. I'll go a round or two with the Grill! Our virtual cast is way more interesting than the hamsters are. :)

Include me in all the pools.

Witt said...

Love the virtual BB cast Margo!

Notes to Ben and Orkmommy: I think you are both right. People often do get by with looks alone (which is NOT fair but is simply human nature), but in Brit's case, her humor and charm just amp it all up a notch.

Witt :)

Witt said...

It looks like in DC we have BB on at 8.

JimmyB said...

Margo--Too funny. I'd rather do it here than in the "real" house!

...The one thing about Rachel's looks as compared to others is that she really thinks she's a beauty queen. I think not.

Jackie said...

Ragan is a "radio personality" on the West Coast -- he's not tweeting from the house. That was before he went in.

I'm counting on you guys to post the eviction as it happens tonight!! We have a football interruption too, but at least I can turn into BBAD at 9pm and I'll be able to see who is missing and who is HOH. Will try to stop by during the blog/live show (not) party tonight - but I never seem to get home in time anymore!!

Here's to my pool guy Ragan!

Maybe that's why I can't see her 'charm'. Or rather I recognize it, but it doesn't seem genuine to me. Pageants being about appearances, over substance. That and I've simply built up an immunity living here in the south. Pageant girls, debutantes, sorority girls, etc.. I've been overexposured! Ha!

I thought Ragan was some kind of professor {confused}??

He is, JimmyB. He also has a podcast. I heard him telling Matt about it earlier in the season.

JimmyB,

"...The one thing about Rachel's looks as compared to others is that she really thinks she's a beauty queen."

Rachel was full of herself. No argument. And Brit actually entered beauty pageants... Hello?

No matter who you like or don't like. I think it's safe to say that there is not a hamster in this cage who could be accused of having a small ego.

Ragan is an assistant professor of communication at California State University, Long Beach. He also has a podcast, but I don't know how frequently it is updated.

-Ben

Sasha said...

ML...I'm with you. I would not call Rachel ugly at all. I think she's physically attractive, even if I don't care for her style choices) but of course her personality does come into play. I do think she looked better before the supersize implants but that's just me and I'm not a guy.

Anyway, I think Britney is physically adorable. Again, personality-wise, I'm not as big a fan. I don't find her charming (that pesky personality thing again) but I can see where many do and she's very practiced at being charming to someone's face.

Anyway, JMHO.

I wanna play virtual BB, too. I just can't figure where I'd fit in. Not quite a lurker and not quite a social gamer. Hmmmm, I may be unallied but I won't isolate like Ragan :)

JimmyB said...

Thanks everyone for the info on Ragan.
