As expected based on the strange happenings and live feed blackout on Big Brother 12
, today was an unusual day.
SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 12 spoilers.
Today was the very unkind not-live eviction of Britney and the start of the final HoH competition. Viewers will get to see it unfold on Wednesday night's show, but it has to crush little Britney's spirit to know she didn't even get a live show for her exit.
After Hayden didn't use the Power of Veto and Enzo voted to evict Britney, the three remaining members of the Brigade started part 1 of the final HoH competition.
True to form, part 1 is endurance, meaning part 2 will most likely be a skill and the final part, on the live finale next Wednesday, will be a short, random quiz that takes a season's worth of drama and makes it all about who can randomly guess answers the best.
The endurance portion of the last HoH is most likely a King of the Jungle theme, with the three men hanging onto vines and smashing into walls and through a waterfall. Sadly, due to the live feed blackout, we won't officially know who won until Wednesday night unless it leaks through production.
However, given the general largeness of the final three and their performances in past endurance competitions, I wouldn't be surprised if it lasts less than an hour. After the whole season, we're left with three people who don't seem to care who wins.
Instead, Lane and Enzo are resigned to the fact that Hayden will win and all of them are simply waiting on getting out of the house to cash in on personal appearances at bars. This is why I now hate the Brigade. For them, winning doesn't matter, because as they see it, the Brigade already won. They've all been deluded into thinking Big Brother
is a team competition, making this final week relatively moot.
If Hayden wins the last HoH, there's no way he'll lose. The only potential for drama is if Lane or Enzo take it down and decide to evict Hayden. A Lane-Enzo finale would definitely be a battle of who doesn't deserve it less, but at least it wouldn't be predictable.(Image courtesy of CBS)
