Big Brother 12 houseguests Rachel and Brendon

Is it just me, or are the Big Brother 12 houseguests not so great at this game? For me, that was the running theme last night:

  • Andrew was so ecstatic when Rachel won HOH, you'd think he won. This made him a target for The Brigade, Rachel & Brendon, and everyone who doesn't like Rachel. Basically, the whole house.
  • Britney's too busy hating the houseguests to focus on her game, and for some reason thinks everyone's after her.
  • Matt puts on a huge show of fake paranoia so he won't be nominated, but doing so almost gets him on the block.
  • Rachel cares more about spending time with Brendon than playing the game.

Seriously, you'd think these people have never watched the show.

But you know what made this a great episode?

Kristen finally spoke! She only spoke to Hayden, but still!

It turns out that Hayden and Kristen have a showmance blooming. He tries hard to make sure Rachel doesn't nominate her, going so far as to make a fake final four alliance with Rachel and Brendon. Why Rachel and Brendon would believe it when Kristen isn't even in the room to agree to it, I don't know, but it's a done deal at any rate. Gotta love those fake alliances. I wonder how long until Rachel and Brendon realize they shouldn't trust Hayden.

Another great moment came when they revealed Annie as the saboteur. The entire house was happy, giving themselves a huge pat on the back as if they had actually suspected her and voted her off for that reason. I was surprised Enzo didn't use his phrase of choice for the night: "The Brigade threw a grenade." Meow Meow sure has a way with words, I tell you.

The episode ends with Britney and Monet nominated for eviction. They appear a bit surprised, despite the fact that they hate Rachel and Rachel hates them. I would have felt bad for them except I was too busy laughing at how much they were crying.

How do you feel the game is going? Who do you want out of the house?
