'Big Brother' Couple Rachel and Brendon Get Into a Lovers' Quarrel (VIDEO)

'Big Brother' Couple Rachel and Brendon Get Into a Lovers' QuarrelAs we mentioned last time around, "showmance" couple Rachel and Brendon have taken over the 'Big Brother' household. They've decided to square off against the second 'Big Brother' couple -- which consists of Kristen and Hayden.

Somehow, magically, Rachel has gotten "Head of Household" power, and so she's put both Kristen and Hayden on the elimination block. It makes no sense that Rachel is in charge of things now -- except that maybe it does. ... Yes, she seems kind of dumb. But she's also kind of good at playing this game. Her overly self-confident rudeness really kind of works in the reality game show format.

But on tonight's show (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS), Rachel may have gone too far. Brendon gets angry at her for saying "Bring it on!" to the other players. Then, he correctly points out that saying such a thing might -- y'know -- annoy the other players, and asks Rachel to apologize to them. Which is when Rachel freaks out and gets mad.

'Big Brother' Girl Fight! (VIDEO)

'Big Brother' Girl Fight!Great. Now we have two rival couples on 'Big Brother' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS). As if Rachel and Brendon weren't annoying enough.

[Spoiler alert.]

Now, it is confirmed that Kristen and Hayden are also a couple. This leads to a lot of anger from Rachel. Why? Because everything on 'Big Brother' leads to someone getting angry. Rachel also continues on with the non-clever plan of the current contestants on the show. She decides that she wants to kick Kristen and Hayden off; so she announces that's she's going to kick Kristen and Hayden off. Wow. Super-crafty, Rachel!

Then, for a long time, Rachel and Kristen and their respective boyfriends just fight, in an effort to decide who is being more skanky. Here is a sample of their conversation ...

RACHEL: "I heard you AND Hayden making out last night!"

KRISTEN: "Bullsh*t! ... Why would we ever do something so stupid in the room with you?"

RACHEL: "Why would I lie about that?"

HAYDEN: "You're making sh*t up!"

Another Contestant Goes Home on 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

Another Contestant Goes Home on 'Big Brother'It's always nice to be proved right. As you may remember, the last time we talked about 'Big Brother' (Thu., 8PM ET on CBS), we predicted that a certain contestant might be getting himself in trouble. And tonight, that contestant was kicked off the show. Which is to say ... we were right! YES! YES! IN YOUR FACE, YOU!

[Spoiler alert.]

Ahem. Anyway, sorry about that. So, previously on 'Big Brother,' Andrew came up with the plan of crazily acting like he was against Rachel and Brendon. But at the same time, he also made a speech asking Brendon for help. And it turned out that he was also secretly in league with Brendon and Rachel, and that this was all part of some larger genius master-plan. Unfortunately, this bizarre combination of conflicting ideas just ended up freaking all the other contestants out.

Tonight, Andrew tried to avoid being kicked out of the house. But his plan was the same as last time. He just stood up in front of the group and announced everything that he was doing. Great. Non-clever-ish! Andrew's speech also sort of involved him telling all the other housemates about their personal flaws. And the people in the room were all horrified.

'Big Brother' Contestant Andrew Freaks Out and Goes Crazy (VIDEO)

'Big Brother' Contestant Andrew Freaks Out and Goes CrazyWelcome back to the most confusing reality show on television! Yes, we're back in the 'Big Brother' household, for another week of backstabbing and overly complex plans that never really work out. If you haven't been following along with the show, then honestly, it's getting a little weird. This right here might help provide you with a brief primer. At any rate, the important thing that happened on the show tonight (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS) is that Andrew freaked out.

[Spoiler alert.]

Matt is currently the Head of Household, and Andrew and Kathy are up for eviction. But it's a "veto" episode, which means that one them could get immunity and not be kicked off the show. But it's gross romancer Brendon who wins the power of awarding the veto. (Confusing, right?)

Anyway, this is the point at which Andrew freaks out. He and Kathy both get a chance to state why they should not be eliminated. Kathy makes a very modest speech. And then Andrew does one the weirder things that we've ever seen on reality TV. His speech is so bizarre that it kind of needs to be quoted in full:

"I had a chance to save myself during the competition and unfortunately I didn't, so congratulations, Brendon. This game is ironic. A few weeks ago Brendon and Rachel ousted Matt, and they saved him by voting for him to stay in the house. Matt fired back and said 'I'm going after Brendon and Rachel,' but he didn't put them on the block. All three of them are unscarred from all of the weeks that passed and their strategy worked, so I am going to try that strategy. Brendon and Rachel, I'm coming after you. And Brendon, I would like for you to give me the Power of Veto, to save me."

The 'Big Brother' Players Get Grossed Out by a Couple (VIDEO)

The 'Big Brother' Players Get Grossed Out by a CoupleSince the early days of 'Big Brother' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS), housemates Rachel and Brendon have been messing around. This has been fairly painful for everyone to watch. The pair are kind of cute -- but they're also incredibly dumb, self-absorbed, and annoying. Now, the other contestants' patience is starting to reach the breaking point.

[Spoiler alert.]

Poor Andrew is stuck being roommates with the two of them, and every time he enters the room, Rachel and Brendon are either making out or are trying to have sex. Ugh. Andrew is embarrassed, and tries just to pop in, grab some clothes, and get out. But meanwhile, Rachel is frustrated by Andrew's "constant" presence. Um? Rachel? He's your roommate. Where else is he supposed to go?

Meanwhile, Britney (who never liked Rachel much anyway) has been monitoring the couple, and does a continual running commentary on their skanky activities. This is Britney's final conclusion about the whole thing: " ... It's, like, nauseating." Good point, Britney! That's the first smart thing that you've said on this show!

Matt Is Exposed on 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

Matt Is Exposed on 'Big Brother'Well, there's nothing better than being proved right. Yesterday, we suggested that supposed "super-genius" Matt may have outsmarted himself. And tonight, on 'Big Brother' (Thu., 8PM ET on CBS), this theory proved to be correct.

[Spoiler alert.]

Matt offered himself up as a "pawn," in order to get Monet out of the house. But he only did this in order to win the trust of all the remaining players, so that he could lie and deceive them and win the game. Unfortunately, Matt thinks that he's so clever that he can't help yapping to everyone about what he's doing. And so he revealed that he thought that Rachel and Brendon were "idiots" for going along with his plan.

A Risky Move on 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

A Risky Move on 'Big Brother'Things are starting to get complicated on 'Big Brother' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS). See if you can follow all of this...

[Spoiler alert.]

... Rachel is in love with Brendon or something and now she's Head of Household and nominates Britney and Monet for eviction. Britney and Monet are pals, but then Britney wins veto power and removes herself from elimination, which means that Rachel must nominate someone else for eviction -- but meanwhile, Matt is busy lying, but he lies to Andrew, who is also lying to him ... And oh, it's really confusing. Read the full TV Squad recap for all of the gory details.

The important thing that happens tonight is that Matt convinces Rachel to let him become a "pawn." Which means that he selects himself for potential eviction -- but he's just a decoy, allowing Rachel to gather enough votes to remove the semi-hated Monet. (Are you still following all of this?)

Matt seems to believe that he's a complete and utter genius, and feels that he can win all the other contestants' trust while deceiving them. His "pawn" plan is part of this larger goal.

'Big Brother 12' - Nominations #2 Recap

by Jackie Schnoop, posted Jul 19th 2010 4:50AM
Rachel rules the roost in the 'Big Brother 12' house, or does she?(S12E05) It's only the fifth episode and things aren't looking too good in the 'Big Brother' house. They put in a surface-pretty, PhD-laden cast and focused on the idea of a saboteur in the house. Oh, they had such grand plans! They had a website going in which America could take part in the saboteur's actions, they had hype, they had it all.

And it all went "poof!" when Annie, the saboteur, was evicted in the first week. So much for the plans of hamsters and man, eh? What are they going to do now to redeem the season? While they have diversity in personalities, this cast isn't tremendously explosive. We need some good brouhahas; we need good TV.

The Saboteur Is Revealed to the Cast of 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jul 19th 2010 1:25AM
The Saboteur Is Revealed to the Cast of 'Big Brother'The new wrinkle for this season of 'Big Brother' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS) was meant to be the introduction of "the Saboteur." This so-called Saboteur was a player who was secretly working for the producers, and whose goal was to create mayhem in the house. But now, all of that is over.

[Spoiler alert.]

During last week's episode, Annie Whittington was booted off the show. On that same episode, viewers learned that Annie was the Saboteur. ... Tonight, this information was passed on to the rest of the cast members. The players then yelled, pumped their fists, and jumped up and down with joy. They were delighted at having made the right choice by eliminating Annie.

Well, the cast may be celebrating -- but CBS must definitely be feeling bummed out. The addition of the Saboteur was the much-hyped big twist for this season. Will there be any new surprises in the 'Big Brother' household, or will everything go back to normal now?

'Big Brother 12' - Power of Veto #1 Recap

by Jackie Schnoop, posted Jul 15th 2010 12:15AM
Brendon and Rachel, a 'Big Brother' showmance(S12E03) The house guests in the 'Big Brother 12' house this season include intrigue, sabotage and (of course) an early showmance. Not only that, but there's this Brigade thing going on and the Meow Meow Mafia. But are those last two one and the same? After all, they both seem to be run by Enzo, the New Jersey stereotypical mobster wannabe.

While they didn't go for a real diversity in ages, races or other walks of life so much this season, they have a diversity in characters. Right now I don't think I'd want any of those characters in my house! Well, the cougar in me says perhaps Hayden. But he'd have to get a haircut. On to tonight's episode ...

'Big Brother' Adds a New Surprise, and the Contestants Freak Out (VIDEO)

'Big Brother' Adds a New Surprise, and the Contestants Freak OutThis season of 'Big Brother' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS) introduces a new concept known as "the saboteur." What's that all about? The saboteur is a contestant secretly inserted into the show, in order to ruin all the other players' strategy. The viewers of the series will learn the saboteur's identity this Thursday. But the players on the show will be kept in the dark until they actually manage to solve the mystery on their own.

[Spoiler alert.]

On the latest episode, the saboteur suddenly appears on the house's big 'Justice League'-style video screen, and announces a new surprise. Even though all the contestants are supposed to have never met before, the shadowy figure on the screen says that two of the players are actually life-long best friends.

This announcement leads to instant accusations and finger-pointing from the none-too-smart players. Contestant Andrew jumps up, and says that he's totally not involved in any of this! He's completely innocent! Why? Because he's Jewish! ... Huh? Say what now? What does that have to do with anything? Andrew's speech just makes the other contestants suspect him more. Is he one of the secret friends? Is the the actual "saboteur"? Quick, everyone! Grab him! He's the bad guy!

Trying to Grab a "Wiener" on 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

Trying to Grab a 'Wiener' on 'Big Brother'Well, we're back for the 12th season of 'Big Brother' (Thu., 8PM ET on CBS). Yes, it's 'Big Brother,' the somewhat-unloved reality show where people sit around in a house while cameras watch their every move.

[Spoiler alert.]

On the first episode of the new season, the challenge involves having the contestants grab on to a huge moving hot dog. (Or "wiener," as they continually call it.) The housemates are separated into two teams, and the game involves grabbing the hot dog and being able to hold onto it for several seconds. Up to $10,000 is at stake, and if someone falls, then they fail, and hit the fake rocks below them. (The players are also being sprayed with ketchup and mustard while they're doing this, in keeping with the theme of the whole stunt.)

Everything is going pretty well -- considering that grabbing onto a giant moving hot dog makes no sense in the first place. But then, contestant Britney falls off the hot dog while trying to do the stunt, and seems to hurt herself kind of badly. Everyone acts very shocked.

But at this point, we have to say this. ... Um. Really? Is this actually in any way shocking? So trying to jump onto a quickly moving object while being sprayed with condiments is actually dangerous? Color us unsurprised.
