Andy Wins Veto – Doesn’t Use It

So, Andy proved this week he can win a couple competitions, taking the Veto this week home to his HOH room. With Spencer and Jessie being his nominees the chance for making a big move in the game was at his fingertips, but as you’d expect, he played it safe. This season in the Big Brother house the theme seems to be “Don’t rock the boat, baby” and Andy, being Andy, decided to ‘go with what the house wants’ to not upset the balance (Amanda).

Having played ‘both’ sides of the house (Helen and/or Amanda) since the beginning, he has kept both thinking he’s working for them. His true loyalty was tested while he was in power, Helen brought forth a potential plan to backdoor Amanda – he squashed it immediately; it couldn’t happen without him, of course. It also showed that at this point in the game he considers Amanda his stronger ally.

The Letter From Nick

Dear GinaMarie,

I’m so proud of you for winning HoH and glad you are getting this letter, because I can finally tell you exactly how I feel. I’m not in love with you and I don’t even like you. It was pure torture being in that house with you and now that I know you copped a feel of my dick while I was sleeping, I’m even more disgusted. Please get help for your personality disorder as soon as you leave the house. Don’t come looking for me, because I’m moving to Iceland. If you show up there, I’ll move to Timbuktu. No joke.

Have a nice life you crazy biatch and stay out of mine, see you never!

Nick

Kaitlyn Wins & Uses Veto – Jeremy, Aaryn & Spencer Up

After being nominated alongside Aaryn and the MVP choice, Spencer, Kaitlyn won the timed House Guest Photo Manipulation challenge and had the chance to save herself in the game…. But at what cost?

For what seems to be the first time in Big Brother History, a Showmance, a backdoor plan, and a Veto win collide. Kaitlyn won the Veto, knowing if she used it on herself her ‘man’ Jeremy would be the replacement nominee and be evicted – if she didn’t, she’d knowingly pull a Marcellas, and be voted out herself.

Ian Won HOH Part 2

After both threw the first part of the HOH competition to Dan, Danielle and Ian competed in the second of the three part final Head of Household Competition tonight. Ian won, making it an Ian/Dan head-to-head competition live Wednesday, for a guaranteed spot in the Final Two and the choice of who will sit next to them.

Ian, thinking he’s guaranteed to be in the finals because of his ‘Renegade Alliance’ with Dan, was put under fire immediately after his win. A planned attack by Dan and Danielle that Dan hopes will help his chances of convincing Ian to throw the final part of the HOH to him. Dan put his plan in to motion, making an intentional slip to ‘reveal’ his alliance with Ian to Danielle. Continue reading “Ian Won HOH Part 2”

Kalia Me, On The Line!

A newbie finally won HOH, when in a strange sort of psychic pattern, Kalia answered questions on last Thursday night’s quiz like Ralph Fiennes in the movie Quiz Show. Everyone was thrown off track, including Rachel who promised to avenge Brendon’s eviction.

Then came groveling visits to the HOH room. Rachel made a special appearance, looking very plain sans makeup. She repeatedly used the word respect in regards to Kalia’s win and game play, “I respect you. I really, really respect you.” Yet just a few hours before, Rachel had no respect at all for the sex blogger. I guess when your ash is on the line, anything goes. Frankly I was glad to see Rachel fighting to stay. I was beginning to worry that she had given up. Not so!

In a surprise twist, Jordan was the one who showed some rebellion. She got in Kalia’s face in response to being told Jeff would be a pawn. The reason being that Jeff would win Veto, take himself off the block, and somehow Rachel would go home. It didn’t make any sense, but that’s almost what happened. Jeff won the veto, but Lawon went on the block and appears to be targeted for eviction.

Daniele’s father denounced her game play endlessly this week. He was correct in his assessment, but it doesn’t take a genius to see why a rift has formed in the Donato family. Maybe he could learn to tame his words just once for his own blood, because what he’s doing now sure doesn’t work.

Back to Kalia. Rather than serving her HOH rein in a calm, strategic manner, she wasted time with emotional reasoning. She completely forgot that no matter who she evicts this week, they might come back to haunt her on the very same evening. She made a total mess of it, and I predict a wild show tonight. No matter who comes back, they’ll be all about respect and intent on revenge.

Falling Dominos

It has often been said that the game of Big Brother changes from week to week. Those in power one week can become pariahs the next; those who suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune can become the top dogs a week later. For two years, no one has exemplified this statement more than Brendon and Rachel. When they’re in power, they relish the power– but once they lose, it becomes a sob story for the ages.

Coincidentally their collapse came in week three of both seasons. Unsurprisingly, however, it followed the combined inflation of the Brenchel head to a sphere the size of Pluto. No matter when it happens, one thing is certain: watching Rachel and Brendon squirm is delicious. Big Brother TV viewers will see it on Sunday’s show but the feedsters saw the entirety of the HoH endurance comp play out.

Cassi Out :: Rachel HoH

The die was cast for Cassi to exit the game when she entered the house week one. Though we heard her humbly try to deny that petty jealousies were the cause of her early exit from the house, the truth was revealed in exit interviews and edited House guests comments. Shelly and Cassi believed they had a week one deal with the veterans that would safely see them through the first part of the game. The increasing animosity between Rachel, Brenden and Porsche toward Cassi had been re-fueled when Cassi calmly stood her ground to them before and after Keith’s eviction. Dani, wanting Domenic’s complete attention, also campaigned for Cassi to go.

Rachel took a shot at Jordan during the POV competition and Jeff told her to cool-it, which led to a predictable melt down for Rachel. Showing no humility or gamesmanship, Rachel tried to hide in the fake shrubbery to pout and cry. Brendon pretended to console her while he scolded her for trying to win the POV that they wanted to lose so Cassi could go up.

Later, Rachel went to goad Cassi and had her hat handed to her and Cassi let Rachel know that she had once admired her, and even defended her against critics, but had come to realize that Rachel was “catty, ugly on the inside and didn’t like pretty girls”. This really disturbed Rachel, so she went to Jordan alone in the HOH room for compassion. Rather than a pat on the back, Jordan lectured her on her “bitchiness” and asked her to be kinder to others. It was classic Jordan, well worth the price of the feeds.

Next up was the voting, Cassi was evicted unanimously, no surprises there. Not even her friend Dom threw her a pity vote. She tried to give everyone hugs, even Rachel, and then she was out the door to meet Julie. Cassi is not only pretty, she’s smart too: Julie’s best efforts couldn’t get a negative comment out of her.

The HoH contest was a tried and true classic, where the competitors had to answer random questions about what a majority of voters on CBS’s website thought about them. After five questions, Rachel and Brendon were the only players left. Two questions later, Rachel won her second HOH of the season. The Veterans remain in control for the third straight week. As Rachel told Julie earlier in the show: “in the end I always get my way”.

Keith Out :: Jordan HoH

Whenever Big Brother promotes the slogan: Expect the Unexpected us regular feed watchers roll our eyes or shake our heads because we know the live show is predicted by the previous week’s feed watching. We likely know who is leaving and who’s going to throw the upcoming HOH. When Julie, looking pretty in pink, introduced last night’s show and teased us with ‘Both think they have the votes to stay but in a house divided nothing is certain’ she wasn’t kidding.  The first weeks eviction vote was totally unpredictable.

Big Brother 13 Premiere

The CBS summer hit Big Brother show is back, and as Julie Chen promised the twists are better than ever! When the eight new house guests entered the house they had no idea that another eight previous players would be joining them.  Porsche & Dominic, clearly already playing the game upon entering,  counted the 12 dining place settings and figured there would be more coming. Adam,  joined by the others in the Living Room, opened the champagne and all was cozy for the first toast. That is…until interrupted by Julie announcing that they were to pick partners to play the game with. They were quickly paired. Keith picked Porsche, Shelly and Cassi agreed to play together as did Adam and Dominic which left a disappointed Kalia to pair with overly-excited Lawon.

The Houseguests’s were again startled by Julie letting them know another twist was to be revealed. It was, the door bell rang three times, bringing a new returning Duo from seasons past. First Brendon and Rachel, followed by Jeff and Jordan who got a noticeably very warm welcome, then Dick and Daniele. Ushered outside to play the HOH Slippery Hot dog competition of last year, this time with bananas, the eight new house guests were eliminated shockingly fast. At the end, Rachel remained clinging tightly to the top of her swinging perch while Dick & Dani hung from theirs. Dick asked for and got assurances from Rachel that the duo would not be a target for eviction and gave Rachel won the fist HOH.

At the shows closing Julie left the house guests with yet another twist, the Big Brother Golden Key; Eviction nominees would be a duo; Since the duos will be fighting against each other to stay, the one who wins the POV and/or stays will be safe through for the first four evictions and not have to compete. If your partner gets booted, you get a fast-forward to the final ten. CBS has delivered the goods, the first show was held our attention from start to finish.

A Stand-Up Moment

It’s season five, and the Four Horsemen have been terrorizing the house. Little Diane Henry has put her foot in her mouth one too many times making comments about sides, and which folks were on them. Yeah, she admitted she had a group, not a smart thing to do. But Diane was insanely honest like that. As you can guess the Four Horsemen went on the defense, hell bent on convincing the house that Diane should be the next person up for eviction. The thing about Diane was she had a good heart, perhaps at a fault. She was a young girl, falling fast in love with the hottie Drew. I think in her mind she thought time spent in the Big Brother house was a ticket out of a former life. She wanted love, she wanted a chance at fame, she wanted money. Like Janelle, I felt Diane was one of those contestants who made her way through the game by just being herself. I liked Diane’s spunk, I really did.

So here she is at her lowest point. She’d been alienated, called trailer trash and she knows she is next on the block. There’s a lot at stake for her. And here comes a competition where all she has to do is stand with her finger pressed to a button. I remember Diane said something like, “I’m a waitress. I can stand here all night.” And she did. Jase went insane. He tried everything to mess with her mind, but she held tight, kept that finger poised. Determination, that’s what Diane was made of. Good old stubborn, kick ass determination. Well, after watching Jase melt like a bad robot in a rainstorm, Diana claimed the HOH throne. The house changed completely after that. No more bad guy, just good old, healthy competition. It was something else. Then came the pinky-swear, and history was made. Diane did not win season five, but she burned an image in my mind that will never be forgotten. I was sad to see her do so poorly in the all star season.

So there you have it, my favorite moment in Big Brother history. I hope there will be multiple moments like this one in the new coming BB13 season. I know it’s possible.
