Life goes on in the Big Brother household just days after the biggest fail in the history of BB twists.
Annie Whittington, 27, was revealed as the Saboteur last Thursday. Only one major problem. Annie was also the first house-guest to be evicted from the Big Brother house, basically ruining the “big twist” this season.
While Big Brother deserves major kudos for at least picking a woman to be the moleAmerica’s Player Saboteur, one has to ask, what the heck were they thinking in picking Annie? She was a terrible choice to be the Saboteur as she simply talked too much, did too much, and annoyed her housemates to no end. A lot of TV viewers are wondering why Annie got sent home over Rachel, and it was simply because her housemates found her obnoxious and annoying. The TV editing for some reason did not touch on the fact that the HGs didn’t like her. To sum it up, Annie was simply the wrong person to do the job, and the fact that she couldn’t even last a week in the BB house speaks volumes. Someone like Kristen or Kathy would have been better suited. The Big Brother Saboteur twist equals a MAJOR FAIL.
Zap2It is however reporting the first eliminated HGs, including Annie, will be sequestered. This means there’s a very good chance one of the first 3 – 5 eliminated HGs will be brought back into the game. Plus we still have the lifelong friends twist, so perhaps all hope is not lost for Big Brother 12.
Moving on to this week’s happenings. Rachel surprisingly won HOH, which means “her man” Brendon is safe. Also coming up in tonight’s episode, we get to see Rachel’s nominees and the HGs will find out Annie was the Saboteur.
In today’s spoilers, we reveal the nominees and the POV winner, plus it seems a certain someone isn’t being so true to his Brigade alliance. Find out who below!
TELL US – WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED WITH THE SABOTEUR TWIST? PLUS WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
Judging from last night’s episode, it seems Annie will be the first house guest to leave. The other HGs have revealed they simply deem her a bigger threat than Rachel. Also not shown on TV, Annie has been wrecking major havoc in the house since being on the block, and it seems the other HGs are simply tired of her.
Also tonight, the ‘Saboteur‘ will finally be unveiled! It’s anyone’s guess who it is. The HGs seem to suspect Andrew.
Another twist revealed this week was that two of the HGs are lifelong friends. Britney suspected Brendon and Kristen because she didn’t buy their reactions, while Kristen suspected Matt and Annie because they hadn’t interacted but had more in common than any of the other house guests.
The only thing that’s clear is that this season of Big Brother is one to watch! The new episode airs tonight at 8:00 pm Eastern on CBS.
My Thoughts So Far: Big Brother is indeed my favorite reality show and I must say this season has been great thus far. I wasn’t that impressed with the Saboteur twist, but this lifelong friends twist however has me very intrigued. Now that’s the kinda twist I like!
Saboteur – I really have no clue on who the Saboteur is though I highly doubt it’s Andrew, that would simply be too obvious right? He is too reminiscent of former America’s player Eric. I truly believe (and hope) it is a woman this time around. I suspect Kathy, Annie or Monet. Plus if you notice, the physical stature of the Saboteur seems to be of a smaller stature, similar to that of a woman. But then again, perhaps Big Brother is just screwing with us and has altered the size of the Saboteur. Must say I can’t wait to find out who it actually is tonight.
Lifelong Friends – This is such a great twist, similar to the Twins twist they had in the past. There are a lot of theories as to who these could be. The biggest one is that it is Kathy and Britney, and that they are mother and daughter. Remember during the message to the HGs, the Saboteur said: “And if you think about it, it’s actually quite easy to figure out.” Well Kathy and Britney are both from Arkansas, plus the Saboteur did put Xs on both of their names earlier on, perhaps as a clue to the HGs. Another theory is that if they are not mother and daughter, they are at least related. Another theory is that Matt & Ragan might be brothers.
Brigade Alliance – The Brigade, yikes! This could possibly be the dumbest alliance in BB history. Enzo nicknaming himself Meow Meow? Priceless. There are so many flaws with this alliance. For starters, they will be discovered by the other HGs any minute now. Two, one thing I’ve learned from watching BB is that joining an alliance too quickly is always a bad idea, plus the number of people in the alliance, four, is one too many for the time being. And finally, there are simply one too many idiots in the alliance aka Enzo, Hayden. I am really hoping someone not it the alliance wins HOH tonight and hopefully puts up two people from the alliance.
Showmance – How hot is Brendon by the way? But in all seriousness, it seems Brendon and Rachel are getting way too caught up in their showmance and it is without a doubt affecting their game play. Rachel saying she would have saved Brendon had she won POV was very adorable, but really, has she forgotten her reason for moving into the BB house? These two being so open with their showmance, so soon, is also a bad idea. People are not going to want to go into an alliance with them because they know Brendon and Rachel will always be loyal to each other and put the other first. With that said, I really do like Brendon and am rooting for him.
TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON BB SO FAR? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SABOTEUR? NEW TWIST, BRIGADE & THE SHOWMANCE?
It’s just week 1 in the Big Brother household and a lot is starting to unfold already!
The premiere episode ended with housemate Hayden winning the Head of Household, while Andrew, who volunteered to sit out the HOH competition was declared ineligible for eviction.
The biggest surprise comes in the form of a new twist. The Saboteur delivered a message to the houseguests informing them that two of their cast members are lifelong friends and already had an alliance before entering the BB game. No word yet on who the two HGs are.
In this week’s spoilers, the two nominees are revealed as well as the POV winner. A showmance is also brewing between two of the housemates, can you guess who?
Tonight is the long awaited premiere of CBS’s summer hit reality show – Big Brother!
Big Brother 12 debuts tonight at 8 p.m. EDT. As usual, the show will air three episodes a week. This season will be on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. The uncensored nightly broadcast will continue to air on Showtime as well.
13 contestants are vying for the $500,000 prize this season but it wouldn’t exactly be Big Brother without a big twist. The twist this year is that there is a Saboteur who has been planted among the houseguests to do viewers’ bidding and disrupt the players’ lives throughout the competition.
However the ‘Saboteur,’ who will be revealed to the viewers on July 15, isn’t eligible to win the $500,000 prize. According to the show’s producers, the inside man/woman isn’t an actor, but a real player who went through the same casting process as the rest of the houseguests.
And though the show has yet to premiere, the houseguests have already moved in and are already playing the game as we speak. You can click below to get a free sneak peek at what’s going on in the house!
CBS has now unveiled the cast of the best reality show ever hit reality show Big Brother. The 13 houseguests that will be taking part in the 12th season of what CBS is dubbing the “Summer of Sabotage,” include a model, a bartender, and a chemistry graduate student who is also a VIP cocktail waitress.
But what everyone wants to know is what is the big twist this season? Well according to executive producer Allison Grodner, a mole has been planted among the houseguests to do the viewers’ bidding and disrupt the players’ lives during this season which debuts July 8 at 8 p.m. ET.
The mole, who will be revealed to viewers during the July 15 episode, is being called the Saboteur and isn’t eligible to win the $500,000 grand prize.
“For the first time ever, we have someone in the house who, in a way, is playing their own game,” said Grodner, who stressed that the operative is not an actor but a real person who was picked alongside everyone else. “They’re playing for a cash prize, if they make it a certain amount of time in the house. If they don’t last, they’re out, and their cover is blown.”
The Saboteur is similar to season 8’s introduction of “America’s Player,” which allowed one contestant, Eric Stein, to complete viewer-voted tasks for cash, unbeknownst to his house mates. The main difference this time however is that the cast will be made aware of the saboteur’s existence beforehand.
First came news that the 26-year-old Matt, who appeared on Big Brother’s season nine back in 2008, was arrested for beating up his 8 weeks pregnant girlfriend. According to the cops involved in the case, Matt’s GF told them the two began arguing after he accused her of cheating on him, which then led to things getting violent.
Matt’s GF told cops he began strangling her and yelling, “I hope the baby dies and hope u [sic] have a miscarriage.” The violence then continued into the next day when Matt accused her of pouring water in his plasma TV — and then proceeded to kick her in the collarbone, put her in a headlock, and began punching her in the arms.
The officers observed visible bruising on the GF’s arms, neck and collarbone, and proceeded to arrest Matt. Fortunately, the GF did not lose her baby.
And then just days after his arrest, TMZ reported Matt was arrested once again for witness intimidation after his GF told cops he was trying to scare her into dropping the charges. Matt and his family members allegedly spent 2 days trying to intimidate the accuser and her family. Matt reportedly called his fiance from jail, a total of 4 times in 48 hours, demanding her to drop the charges against him.
And finally, for his third arrest in a span of 2 weeks, Matt was indicted Tuesday afternoon for conspiracy to distribute oxycodone, and get this, the cops believe he was working with his former Big Brother co-star Adam Jasinski. You know, the season 9 IDIOT winner who was arrested in October 2009 for using his $500,000 Big Brother winnings to fund a large oxycodone distribution ring.
Cops believe Matt was also involved in the drug ring from April 2008 to October 2009. Matt faces up to 20 years in prison and a $1 million fine if convicted of the drug charges alone.
The duo appeared on The Bonnie Hunt show this week during which they discussed their time on the show, shared that they were still together and even admitted to being “in love,” (we can all let out a collective awwwwwwww).
Jordan, 23, revealed her plans to go back to school this summer, and Jeff, 31, is back at his old job. Though the couple is currently in a long distance romance, they did not rule out moving in together in the future. A video of their appearance courtesy of TVGrapevine is below.
The duo also gave an interview to TVGuide, excerpts from that is below -
TVGuide.com: When you got to the Detour and saw that Brent and Caite were still looking for the grapes, why didn’t you choose to do the same? Did you think doing the glasses would be faster?
Jeff: We actually started with the grapes and then switched to the glasses. We knew we were really far behind, so we thought they were out there for hours, when they weren’t. I feel like I really screwed up on the Race. I think you should stay where the competition is and beat them at the task, but my choice was always to go down the unbeaten path. “Listen, they’re doing this. Let’s do the other one because I can do anything as well as anyone else.” That just wasn’t the case. I should’ve listened to Jordan a little bit more because I think it hurt us a few times. … I mean, I’m an athlete, so we should’ve picked soccer right away [in Germany]. But I heard Brent and Caite say they’re going to do soccer, so I just picked the other one. … But [we] like to make mistakes. Jordan: It was also my fault because I didn’t speak up enough. I was like, “OK, well, if he thinks we can do it, let’s do it.”
TVGuide.com: Last time we talked, you said you were done with TV. Do you still feel the same way?
Jeff: I think we’re going to take a vacation from reality TV. I think people are getting sick of us, too. We need to let all parties settle down a little bit. As far as reality shows go that are on the air, I think Amazing Race is definitely top-notch. It wins Emmys and it’s the classiest way you can go reality. Jordan wants to go on the Rock of Love Bus with Bret Michaels! [Laughs] I can drive the bus! Jordan: Shut up! I want an Amazing Race re-do. Jeff: We want Amazing Race against fifth-graders!
TVGuide.com: Are you sure you can beat them?
Jeff: No, but it would be a great show. We’d be neck-and-neck all the way! We’ll pitch that one to CBS.
It was nice watching Jeff and Jordan on the Amazing Race, and tough to see them leave the show, but it just seemed at times that they didn’t want it bad enough – for example, when they refused to eat the sauerkraut during one of the earlier competitions. And let’s face it, though very cute together, these two are not the brightest bulbs of the bunch.

TheAmazing Race kicked off the premier of it’s 16th edition last night, and there to compete for the $1 million grand prize was America’s favorite couple from Big Brother – Jordan Lloyd and Jeff Schroeder.
The duo got off to a great start as they managed to come in first place after the first race to Chile. Though, the winners of the show will not be known for weeks to come, Jeff, 31, and Jordan, 22, open up about their Amazing Race experience in a new interview with PEOPLE.
The best news of all? The couple is still very much together and even credit their time on the Amazing Race for making them “stronger.”
Excerpts from their interview is below -
Were you fans of the Amazing Race before signing on? Jordan: It’s kind of funny. I’ve been part of two reality shows and I had never watched either one before. I had to YouTube it, just like I did with Big Brother and figure out what everything meant, like ‘detour,’ ‘roadblock’, and all that other stuff. Jeff: I had watched it a couple of times, but I wasn’t a die-hard fan.
Did your experience together on BB help you, or hurt you? Jeff: I think it helped us, and played to our strengths. I’m sure that brothers and sisters, or mothers and daughters had issues after a week of being together non-stop. What was a strain on other teams was a positive for us; we didn’t have to worry about being together all of the time, we were already use to it.
Did traveling together put too much strain on you two, or do you think that it actually made you stronger? Jeff: It was definitely a strain… Jordan: (interrupting) I think it made us stronger! Jeff: (laughs) Let me finish. It was definitely a strain on the relationship, but it definitely made us stronger. The fact that we went through the hard times that we did is a testament to our relationship. This show really pushed us to the max, and it was tough, but we’re still a couple, we’re still here, and it show’s a lot that we’re still together.
You two went from being locked in a house for three months with a bunch of lunatics to traversing 5 continents and eight countries in a race against other cutthroat teams. Are you two just gluttons for punishment? Jeff: (laughs) No, but I look at it as an amazing story, how Jordan and I met, and how things have been working out between us. It’s definitely something to tell the grandkids type of story, and hopefully things keep working out the way they have, because as crazy as it’s been, it’s a serious relationship. I love the way things are and I wouldn’t trade it or change it for anything.
