For the third time this season, we have an HoH competition extending after the live show on Big Brother 12. This is getting ridiculous, and CBS must really hate the viewers or they must be desperate for people to buy the live feeds.

'Big Brother 12' Spoilers: Who Won the HoH Competition?

The HGs are untangling themselves from a web, so I’ll be here to update you on the outcome.

Brendon has a habit of complaining that the endurance competitions are fixed for little people, and if he loses, he’ll certainly whine that the nets were so low that it benefited the tinier HGs. However, this is perfectly designed for him.

It’s a competition that requires brute strength and logical skills. The strength aspect eliminates Britney, Ragan and Kathy. The logical part eliminates Enzo and Lane. And Hayden WANTS Brendon to win so that he can help the Brigade evict Britney or Ragan.

Halfway Point

It’s hard to judge because of camera angles, but Brendon has a sizeable lead followed by the three members of the Brigade with the trio of tiny people (Kathy, Ragan and Britney) bringing up the rear.

That trend continues since the Brigade wants Brendon to win, so they seem to be playing a little possum, though Lane is the closest to Brendon. I wonder if Ragan and Britney will have bitchy comments about how this competition was designed for bigger, stronger people and how it was unfair to them and what Brendon’s response will be.

And the winner is …


This wasn’t even close, he demolished everybody. The smaller people were way back and even the other strong guys didn’t put up much of a fight, because they didn’t need to.

And with the HoH comes the decision to make three people the Have-Nots. As expected, Brendon decided to punish the three “cockroaches.”

Matt, Britney and Ragan are the Have-Nots of the week.

This is the second time for Matt and Britney and the third time for Ragan. Kathy, Enzo and Brendon also have two weeks each of being a Have-Not. Miraculously, Lane and Hayden continue their streaks of never being a Have-Not.

The hilarious part is that Brendon only thinks he just avenged Rachel’s eviction and now gets to turn the house on its side. The truth is that Brendon will be able to do what the Brigade wants done: evict Ragan or Britney. Then next week’s HoH competition will have all four Brigade members competing against Kathy and either Ragan or Britney.

Thanks to Matt’s Diamond Power of Veto, even in the worst-case scenario of two Brigade members being on the block, Matt can use it, save one, put up someone else and the Brigade has three votes to save their remaining member.

In other words, there is absolutely no way that anyone from the Brigade will be evicted this week.

However, we still need to go through an awkward week of Brendon as HoH where no one wants to go see his room or hang out with him. This began right away with Brendon gloating as if his victory is proof that he’s superior to everyone and that Rachel’s eviction has some meaning.

It didn’t and Brendon just did the best thing possible for the Brigade. I love this alliance more and more every week, because even in defeat they win.
