As annoying as they have been at times, and as horrible as the nickname they gave themselves happens to be, you have to give the Brigade credit for making it (mostly intact) this far. But could Hayden, Enzo, and Lane get all the way to the final three? [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Wednesday’s episode of Big Brother.]
The episode began with the houseguests discussing who was nominated (Britney and Lane) for eviction and why (why not?), although it made no difference whatsoever because all that mattered was who won the GOLDEN POWER OF VETO! So with that said, let’s skip right to that. The veto competition involved the contestants matching posters with two houseguests to clues. This was especially disappointing because it meant we wouldn’t get our usual absurd two-faces-morphed-with-an-alien-or-a-baby-or-an-alien-baby challenge. Hayden positively smoked the competition — Enzo, in vintage Enzoness, missed 5 out of 7 posters — ensuring that the nominations would stand and Britney would be sent home.
However, believing it would be fun to make Britney start bawling one more time before she left, the fellas decided to clue her in to their embarrassingly titled alliance. Her response? Lots of nail chewing, followed by lots of crying, followed by lots of talk about how much she hated everyone, followed by lots of talk about how much she loved everyone, followed by her being voted out of the house, followed by the horrible realization that she was about to go spend a week sequestered with her BFF Rachel.
And then there were three: Hayden, Enzo, and Lane, left to sit on a rope swing/zip line and bang into walls in the first stage of the final HOH competition. (How unfair would that challenge have been to Britney had she made the final three, by the way?) Of those three, I guess I’m rooting for Lane, but Hayden has played well and I’m fine with him winning too. Enzo, on the other hand? Not having it. That would be a travesty of Mike Boogie proportions. What about you? Who are you rooting for to win the $500,000? Hit the message boards and cast your vote!
