(If you didn’t get to see the episode because of that darn PGA going so late, you can watch Sunday night’s full episode of Big Brother here).
The HOH Competition was left unfinished at the end of Thursday night’s episode, when Brenchel was finally split up and Rachel was sent home. Brendon was pushed to compete against everyone to get revenge on everyone for sending the love of his life and future mother of his children home. Kathy and Enzo were at the very back of the back, completely helpless at trying to untangle their ropes. Brendon was way ahead of everyone else, talking to himself, and finally, when Lane started to catch up, Brendon pulled through and won. Immediately, Brendon chose Ragan, Britney, and Matt to be the Have Nots for the week.
Earlier in the day, Hayden and Enzo made a side alliance with Brenchel, telling them that whichever of the two of them stayed, they would be safe with Hayden and Enzo. Obviously, this worked out in their favor when Brendon won HOH.
Britney cried to Lane about how she’s going to go home now that Brendon won, so he comforted her and told her she would be okay. Then, she headed to the Have Not Room and cried with Ragan and talked to Matt about their current predicament.
When the time came to see Brendon’s HOH Room, Kathy and Enzo sucked up the most, while the others just mosied around. In the Diary Room, Lane was surprised that Brendon “has a family, he’s not cloned or made in a scientific lab, and that he actually came from someone.” Nice. He later called his relationship with Britney Raisin Bran, saying that they’re like the raisins and the little bran…wait, it’s not bran…what is that stuff? Cookies? (No, Lane, definitely not cookies. Nice try, though). Britney says Lane is like her “little big brother,” and Big Brother showed clips of the two of them wrestling and goofing around…what normal people like to call flirting.
Hayden and Enzo trust Brendon more than Matt and decided they want Britney out to get Lane back into their alliance. (Just vote out every female in the house, guys. It’ll be really fair then). Enzo went up to tell Brendon his plan, where Brendon revealed he wanted to put up Britney and Lane, while Enzo wants him to put up Ragan and Britney. Then, Enzo ran to tell Lane about Brendon’s plan.
Ragan, the most boring Saboteur ever, takes a “brilliant” suggestion from America to tell the house guests the lifelong friends are still in the house. He also added in his message that one is male and one is female. Kathy and Britney immediately swore on basically everything they could in their lives and say they don’t know anyone in the house. Brendon, being the jerk he is, says that “sounds like something the Saboteur would say.” Please send this guy home next week. He’s an idiot. Let him go sit in the Jury House with his future wife. Gag.
The Have Nots received escargot and eggplant as the food they can eat along with slop for the week, which didn’t please any of them. (Can’t really blame them – who wants to eat snails?)
Matt and Ragan talked in the hammock and decided Ragan should go up and talk to Brendon, so he did. He offered Brendon an alliance, since no one would expect that from the two of them. Brendon nodded along, but later, in the Diary Room, said, “if you spit on the woman I love at her lowest point…” Ugh. Yeah, yeah, we get it. You looove Rachel. You’re going to maaaarry Rachel.
Brendon asked Britney to talk in the HOH Room and asked her why he should keep her in the game. Britney told him he would have someone in his corner to play for the veto and said exactly what he wanted to hear. (The part of this conversation that was edited out is that Brendon flat out told her he was nominating her for eviction, which you are not allowed to do in the Big Brother house. You can say it is a possibility, but you can’t flat out tell someone you are putting them up).
At the Nomination Ceremony, Lane and Ragan were nominated because Brendon wants people to fight to win, and he wants the last two people standing to be competitors. Everyone was shocked at his decisions, and for good reason. It will be interesting to see how the Veto Competition plays out.
