Last night on Big Brother, the show picked up right after the nominations for eviction had been revealed. Brendon told Rachel he was surprised to see she was the one put up with him once they were alone in the bedroom to talk when Annie walked in to tell each of them how shocked she was. Lane went in after her to “disguise the Brigade,” and Enzo quickly followed.
Later, Brendon and Rachel were out in the hammock discussing the nominations when poor Brendon nearly started to cry. He asked Rachel if she’d go out on a date with him once they were out of the Big Brother house, and she said yes. After that, it was time for a little make out session under the blanket while the houseguests inside watched as best as they could.

Brendon tried to plead his case to Hayden, but he didn’t seem to have much luck there, so he decided he would just have to win the Power of Veto Competition to take himself off the block. When the participants for the POV Competition were selected, aside from Hayden, Brendon, and Rachel, Enzo, Andrew, and Monet were the other house guests chosen to participate. Hayden chose Annie to host the competition.
Before the POV Competition, Brendon went back to Hayden yet another time to plead his case. (Getting a little pathetic now, pal, come on).
During the Competition, the players had to run around and break open pinatas filled with rotten mayonnaise to look for letters they could use to spell the longest word, while the other houseguests sat in a “splash zone” where the players broke the pinatas open. (Keeping with the theme of food this season, I see). In the end, Brendon wound up winning after Andrew deliberately spelled “pasteurized” wrong. His winning word was “understanding.” Oh, and once again, for those of us living in Southeastern Wisconsin, the show wouldn’t have been complete without the news interrupting the middle of the competition to give us a sever weather alert. So, if you’re sad you had to miss out on the tidbit of the competition, you can easily watch it online to catch yourself up.
Rachel could not be anymore annoying…between the laugh and all her dumb comments, I just want that girl gone. Speaking of annoying, Enzo is definitely headed in that direction. He is beginning to seem like a pretty good candidate for the Saboteur with all these ideas he is throwing around. He’s stirring up a bit of drama himself.
Britney, another prime suspect in my book for the Saboteur, was hanging out with her best friend Monet and Annie in the HOH room when she spills the beans to Annie that people think she’s in an alliance with Brendon. Obviously, Annie didn’t like this much, so she went straight to the source and talked to Hayden about it.
Hayden and Lane had a brief chat in the storage room in which Lane said he leaned towards putting Kathy up in place of Brendon on the block. Nice idea, Lane! Kathy is annoying.

The Saboteur strikes one more time, and this time, he/she announces that two houseguests are actually lifelong friends. Everyone starts throwing out accusations immediately, when Andrew jumped up off the couch to let everyone know it isn’t him. (This guy seems a little crazy with all his quick jumps off the couch). This accusation could be a lie, or it could be true. It’s hard to say at this point, but Hayden and Kristen, Brendon and Rachel, and Britney and Kathy are at the top of most people’s lists. Leave a comment below to give your opinion of who you think the pair is! I lean toward it being a false accusation.
During the POV meeting, Brendon, of course, used the Power of Veto on himself. And, of course, Hayden put Annie up as the other nominee for eviction against Rachel. No surprise there.
Favorite quotes from the episode: Enzo saying that things couldn’t have “worked out any perfect-er” and Britney saying she “gets off Scotch free.” Nice. Favorite moment of the episode: When Britney gestures toward her chest and said “Rachel makes all her money riiiiight here.” If she really is the Saboteur, at least she’s entertaining.
Tonight, it looks like Annie will be the one to go home over Rachel, sadly. From the notes I’ve read about the live feeds, it sounds like she hasn’t really been making a good case or behaving herself since it was announced. At least we finally get to find out who the Saboteur is. Can’t wait!
