There are a few things in that have happened in the course of Big Brother history that the fan masses (a term used inclusively) can agree upon. (1) The All-Stars season was pretty awesome. (2) ”Chilltown” is possibly one of the coolest alliance names the show has ever seen. (3) ”The Brigade” is one of the worst. And now (4) The saboteur exited far too soon.

But to properly record where Annie (yes, shocker!) went wrong, we must start back at the beginning of the episode because she screwed the pooch right away.

As you probably recall, Annie was put on the chopping block by HAYDEN (yes, HAYDEN, the screamer) after Brendon used the power of veto on [dramatic pause] himseeeeellllllf.

After finding out her neck was on the line, Annie did what any grown woman (of 13 years old) would do and stomped, pouted, whined, blamed another girl for her situation, and even served herself some ice cream.

Brendon attempted to console her and — dare I say — trotted into flirting territory after Annie’s very public display of dissatisfaction put his own reputation on the line. (Maybe Annie’s post-eviction claim that Brendon was her ”sloppy seconds” wasn’t a stretch?)

He wiped her tears, gave her hug, and told her this was hurting him as much as it was hurting her. Oh, Brendon, you’re such a great bff. I’m sure you two will be best girl friends forever. Sisters? Sisters.


To follow up on his girl moment, Brendon left to go get in touch with his man side by making out with Rachel. But then screwed that up by talking about Annie and effectively killing the mood (”I’m sorry; it’s just my feelings were hurt,” Brendon lamented to Rachel.). ”Why are you getting upset about some girl you met eight days ago that is trying to come in between you and something that is real?” Rachel asked him after the sexy makeout session turned into the last scene of an episode of Full House.

Uhm, Rach, exactly which girl are you in that little spiel of yours? Money = very real.

But in all seriousness, what’s the deal with Brendon? Is he really fraying this early? Is he PMSing? Or is it all an act? That whole ”I’m not cut out for this” line kind of had me worried that the guy everyone thinks is the one to beat is not that strong of a player after all. Of course, I could be wrong. I’ve been known to be swayed by a pretty face (and in this case, a pretty everything else, too. Rar.).

Next: Wait, there’s a Kristen?
