GETTING HOUSED: Big Brother - No Power in Pretzels
Let me start with an apology. For a while I made fun of you, Britney, even misspelling your name in an attempt to be funny. I’m sorry. In recent weeks I put an end to that when I started enjoying every minute you were on air. Your relationship with Lane, my favorite house-guest, made every bit of After Dark better. Compound that with the way you handled Brendon and Rachel — I had no problem putting you in my final four.
I said that only so it doesn’t seem like I am jumping on the bandwagon when I admit the following: I jumped out of my seat when Britney won HoH.
That is the truth. I am sorry, Princess Britney, for anything I ever said about you. You’re the reason Lane went viral, you are about to backstab Brendon, and your segments on “Just the Tip” (the HoH-room talk show hosted by Hayden) are worth trolling the live logs.
What a day.
First, CBS sets this up with the usual language, “biggest night of blindsides the game has ever seen!” At this point, they could say there’s a triple murder in the house, and by the end of the show it would be a ridiculous play on words dragged out over 60 minutes.
Then we see Julie decked out in silver, as though Russell Edgington was coming to avenge Talbot’s slaying. You’d think it would be diamonds, but it is clearly linked silver. (Let me take a moment to apologize to my friends and family: there was no need to make a True Blood reference while making fun of someone’s choice of jewelry.)
Anyway. We go live to see the house-guests sitting around the living room, with most decked out in plaid shirts. I will happily say my wife pointed out that they looked like lumberjacks and not me. I may have added, “I know, right?” but that’s beside the point.
Great montage of HaydEnzo working Matty over. Perfect plan by Matt, feeling them out to see how they will vote, knowing he is safe. I really hope people are seeing what a snake Enzo is: he sucked up to Rachel when she returned, he has sucked up to Brendon since she left, and he will surely find a way to suck up to Britney. That’s part of the game but, c’mon Enzo, win something, yo.Continued on the next page
