It's been an upside-down week inside the Big Brother
since Andrew's explosive speech. Kristen and Hayden are nominated and
the two people everyone wants out, Brendon and Rachel, are in power. The
result is a lot of sucking up to the power couple and a lot of
name-calling behind their backs. SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 12 spoilers.Britney won the Power of Veto and she did NOT use it.
Despite last minute attempts to get Britney to use it on Hayden and have Rachel backdoor Kathy, the nominees remain the same and Kristen is 100 percent going to be evicted.
It's an unfortunate situation because Kristen did absolutely nothing wrong, and the only reason she's even in this position is because of Andrew. Making it the worst week ever for Kristen, she's forced to wear a hippie unitard as a result of the PoV competition.See What the Other PoV Competitors Won>>
So in the end, Rachel gets exactly what she wants, which is the opposite of what she says she wants. Rachel famously told floaters to grab their life vests, yet the biggest and most useless floater in Big Brother 12
, Kathy is going to be in the jury.
And next week I guarantee that Rachel will fight like mad to get everyone to evict Kathy, claiming she's a floater and doesn't deserve to win. Unless Brendon wins the HoH, that will almost certainly backfire as the entire house seems solid in their conviction to nominate Brnedon and Rachel.
Of course the power couple thinks that the $5,000 Rachel won in the PoV competition can be used to buy their safety from anyone who gets HoH. I really hope that doesn't happen, and I don't think it will, no matter how sure they are that it would work.
The biggest problem is that everyone wants to break up Brendon and Rachel but no one wants to do it. After Brendon is eliminated from this week's HoH we're going to see a race to throw the competition so no one has to do what needs to be done. If Julie Chen asks the HGs how many cameras are in the house, people will probably be writing down 17,142 just to get eliminated.
For now Kristen just has to suffer in a unitard for three more days, knowing that her time is up and there's nothing she can do to stop it. It's funny that Rachel has claimed all season that she doesn't want this season to be like last year when Jordan and Natalie were in the finale, yet evicting Kristen is the first step on the road to ensuring that the finale will feature non-competitors.(Image courtesy of CBS)
