Big Brother was back on CBS on Wednesday night at 8p.m. and the houseguests were still trying to figure out who is the saboteur in the house. While America will find out on Thursday, who this mystery person is, the saboteur teased the houseguests in the middle of the episode by saying that two of them were lifelong friends. This had everyone looking at everybody else with a microscope trying to figure out which two people were already familiar. There were a lot of theories thrown out and everyone looked guilty but only Andrew took it upon himself to stand up and declare that he was not the saboteur and that nobody could have known him before because none of them knew anything about Judaism. What? Next you see Andrew talking in the confessional room saying he just wanted everybody to know that he was not the saboteur but he didn’t know how that was working. Let me tell you how that’s working Andrew, IT’S NOT. They are more suspicious of you then ever. Please just do everybody a favor and stop trying to help your case.
Elsewhere in the house, The Brigade, as they call themselves were trying to figure out who to put up in the place of Rachel or Brendon if one of them were lucky enough to win the power of veto. Enzo, the self-proclaimed leader of the group, wants to put up Annie because he is sure that she is a apart of the Rachel/Brendon alliance and because he thinks she is the strongest player in the game. Not quite sure what he is basing his information on, but hey, its Enzo, so who knows. Matt is in agreement with Enzo and Hayden as Big Brother HOH is still trying to decide. Lane, the other member of the alliance, who I think looks as dumb as a box of rocks, went to Hayden and offered another option that was quite smart. Hayden said that they should put up Kathy because if they put up Rachel and Annie that whoever didn’t leave would be gunning for them since they are targeting that alliance. He thought Kathy would be a pawn and it wouldn’t look so blatant that the Brigade was trying to break up the three person group. Hayden has a lot to think about.
Brendon puts Hayden on notice that he won’t campaign against Rachel because they have become close, but he does tell the HOH that if he gets the power of veto and Hayden doesn’t create a two person alliance with him, that he will be going after him. Hayden can’t believe that the person who is up for nomination is threatening him. Funny how things go down in the Big Brother house. This is exactly why, showmances lead to people going home early. What does Brendon mean, he can’t campaign against Rachel? That’s very admirable Hayden, but guess what? It’s the first week and you will be going home if you don’t win the power of veto and you’re willing to risk that for someone that you have known for only a week. Not very smart for a physicist, however Brendon’s you are either with me or against me stance to Hayden was quite comical.
Hayden still wasn’t too sure who he would pick if one of the nominees won the power of veto, but when Britney visited the HOH room, Enzo revealed to her that it was Annie who was going up. Hayden very clearly tells Britney to keep it a secret because he doesn’t want anyone to know that he’s thinking about Annie as a replacement. No sooner than Britney could get downstairs, did she tell Annie that Hayden thought that she was in an alliance with the showmance and that he would put her up. Annie is upset and wants to know who told Hayden that. She immediately asks Hayden if they could talk and tells him that Britney told her that he would put her up. Annie sort of makes a deal with Hayden that she would vote the way he voted going forward.
After all the behind the scene drama, its now time for the Power of Veto competition. The HOH and nominees choose who will compete in the challenge. Hayden luckily picks Enzo, Brendon picks Andrew and Rachel picks Monet. Monet notices how Rachel said her name like it was the last person she would have wanted to choose. Annie very fittingly is the host for the competition. As it begins, Annie explains that they will be playing Cinco de Mayo as in mayonnaise. They must bust open piñatas filled with spoiled mayo and grab letters to spell a word. The person with the longest word that is spelled correctly wins the challenge. They get 10 minutes and as time begins they are busting open piñatas like 7 year olds at a birthday party. The houseguests who are not in the competition have to sit in the middle and get splattered by the smelly mayonnaise.
Andrew declares that because he is a doctor that he can spell tons of long words and Enzo decides to spell the seven letter word F-A-C-T-O-R-Y because he has worked in a lot of those.
Time is finally up and it is time to see what words we have. Enzo reveals Factory, Hayden spells P-O-S-S-I-B-L-E which beats Enzo’s word by a letter. Rachel who loves science spells C-H-E-M-I-S-T-R-Y and Britney jokes that of course its another opportunity for Rachel to show how much she loves science, but that she makes her money with her upper body as a Vegas VIP Cocktail waitress. I’m noticing that Britney may be a little catty pot stirrer. Rachel is now in the lead with her nine letters. Monet can’t beat Rachel as she spells C-H-E-A-T-E-R-S but Brendon who spells the 13 letter gem U-N-D-E-R-S-T-A-N-D-I-N-G has come to play and win. The last person up is Andrew the Podiatrist. He spells P-A-S-T-U-E-R-I-Z-E-D which is 11 letters but misspelled. That means Brendon wins the power of veto. Andrew claims that he misspelled his word on purpose so he would not have to make any choices that would effect the game.
The Brigade can’t believe Brendon won and he of course, takes himself off of the block. Hayden puts Annie up and she is not too happy about it. She murmurs something about Hayden having to do what he’s got to do and then she takes a stab at Britney.
Thursday at 8p.m. is the live show where the Saboteur is revealed, the Big Brother houseguests get to see Julie Chen and the first person of Season 12 is voted out. I am sure it will be interesting and I can’t wait to see who the saboteur is. I really think its Enzo but it may be a female. We shall find out soon enough. Until next time, Happy Watching.
