The fifth “Big Brother 12” Head of Household competition is another endurance competition, so keep checking back here for live updates throughout the night. Don’t keep reading if you don’t want to be spoiled.
Before the competition started, Kristen was evicted by a vote of 6 to 1. It wasn’t a surprise with the Brigade at Hayden’s back — the only vote Kristen got was from Kathy. She didn’t even get Ragan’s vote, which was maybe a surprise. It was also revealed that the new HOH will have a Pandora’s Box temptation that will unleash the new Saboteur, Ragan. We wonder if he’ll agree to be the new Saboteur?
Also, how hilarious was it that Hayden’s mom thinks Kristen is crazy? More Hayden’s mom, please. And apparently Kristen has a boyfriend in Philly? Scandal! If you have questions for evicted houseguest Kristen, leave them in the comments. We’ll be interviewing her Friday morning (Aug. 6).
“Big Brother” HOH competition live updates (all times Eastern):
9:00 p.m. — At the start of the competition, everybody is safely on the spinning paint can.
9:26 p.m. — The feeds are still down. What the heck, “Big Brother”?
9:28 p.m. — No sooner do we type that then it reveals Enzo and Kathy are out already. Don’t know if they fell or jumped off.
9:30 p.m. — Brendon falls off and he is mad, talking about how they “just did this f****** challenge.” Enzo is encouraging the rest — “you guys are money.” But do they even know it?
9:38 p.m. — Lane is out. The feeds keep going down and then somebody falls off. Why don’t we get to see any of these undoubtedly hilarious falls? Grrr.
9:40 p.m. — The big guys are bitching about how this challenge favors the small, which appears to be true since Matt, Ragan and Britney are three of the four people left, along with Hayden.
9:44 p.m. — And just like that, Hayden and Britney are out. So it comes down to Matt and Ragan again. We think Matt should give it to Ragan since Ragan gave it to him last time, but then what would happen with the new Saboteur?
9:46 p.m. — it sounds like Ragan is making a deal with Matt and may hand him the HOH again … has he maybe already been asked about being Saboteur?
9:53 p.m. — Ragan is saying he’s going to drop soon but he’s not sure how to do it. Enzo keeps yelling, “West Hollywood! Lady Gaga! West Hollywood! Lady Gaga!” Enzo is kinda weird.
9:55 p.m. — Ragan jumped off and Matt is the HOH.
So Matt has won two HOHs and both times it was because Ragan handed him a win in an endurance competition. Interesting. Who do you think Matt will nominate this time? Will he give in to Pandora’s Box? And do you think Ragan will accept the Saboteur challenge?
