Matt- "The only two people I didn't want to get picked for the power of veto competition were Brendon and Rachel."
Big Brother is a reality television show. What is the point of reality television? To entertain us with the antics of really dumb people right? Well if that is so, this third week of Big Brother really got the point across. I was highly entertained by the stupidity put forth by Matt the doctor! CBS is absolutely right in giving him the moniker of "self proclaimed genius," because he is one of the dumbest smart guys I've seen.
Let's analyze what he did during his week of power as head of household. Matt's first order of business was to select two house guests to put on the block. Instead of putting up a strong player (Brendon) with a pawn, or putting up two contestants that are in the only known alliance (Brendon and Rachel), he goes with personal issues and vows to get rid of Kathy because she voted against him in the last elimination ceremony.
So he's not the first idiot to take this game too personally. But when you go around explaining to everyone (and America) that you are playing these house guests like fiddles, it's not acceptable. So he went against his fellow Brigade members' wishes to put up Brendon and Rachel. In the diary room he explained that he might think about putting one of them up if the Veto got used...but probably not because he was "sitting pretty."
Here's where things get interesting. After Brendon wins the Veto comp and doesn't use it, Matt all of the sudden starts complaining like a little baby that his master planned got ruined. Not just whining to his fellow Brigaders, but to America! To quote him, he said "My empire is crumbling. My master plan is destroyed." Excuse me?!? You may be able to pull one over on your house mates, making them think it was your plan to backdoor Brendon the entire time, but not us guy. We know your original plan was to get rid of Kathy. It was probably a terrible idea, but that was your idea.
Now that Rachel has won HoH again, Matt is going to continue complaining about the Brigade not being able to catch a single break. Seriously this guy is annoying. He's worse than CJ trying to convince people he's good at FIFA. Honestly the Brigade is catching horrible breaks. They're just not playing well at all. We just witnessed them screwing this week up by not putting up Rachel and Brendon. If we take a look back at week one we will see that Hayden was HoH and put Brendon and Rachel up for eviction. What happened there? The Brigade was convinced to get Annie out instead of one of the power couple. Two out of the three weeks you've had the upper hand. I'd call that catching some breaks.
Other highlights from inside the house
Lane and Enzo have both stepped their game up. Enzo has spit out a few good lines, while Lane was yucking it up with Britney. As the two of them replaced their voices with Brendon and Rachel to make fun of them, Lane got nostalgic for his role-playing days in Texas..."I love role playing. I've role played a couple times back in Texas. Mainly with horses and cows you know, wondering what they're saying and what they'd say to me."
Sometimes I feel like these contestants have never watched the show before. When Matt came up with the idea to keep Andrew in the house because he was starting to act crazy, Enzo and Hayden thought this was the most novel idea ever. I've only been watching for three seasons, but isn't that Big Brother 101? Keep the crazies in so that they have the target. Now I know it never happens, because it becomes a great excuse to get rid of that person, but it should.
Andrew went out with a bang as he got swept in the vote to leave the house. I've never seen someone pack so much into the slotted time to speak. Chelsia from a few years back might have been more cruel, but Andrew gets the award for most information spewed. Remember how sometimes people just say "I hope you don't vote me out. Thanks." Yeah simpler times.
