Good Intentions

There is an old saying, that “the Road to Hell is paved with good intentions.” It isn’t often that a proverb can be used to describe a reality game show, but both of tonight’s evictions can certainly be tied to it. One eviction was somewhat expected, and the other was a blindside. However, both can be seen as originating from good intentions.

Two major players removed from the game in a short period of time will lead to drama, and from all reports tonight’s feeds following the live show lived up to that in spades. Had Daniele been the only power player to leave tonight, that alone would have created an interesting night. Add to that the defeat of Jeff (and the breakup of the last pair in the house), and all Hell has broken loose. Power has shifted, possibly for the rest of the game, and as a result we now have a new layout for the game.

Chaos In The House

This is when it all falls apart. It’s because of the slop, the cold showers, the lies, the house stench, the days that turn into nights, and the gradual slip of reality. All of it begins to numb at your brain, erasing who you are and what you know.

But the good news is you might win $500K. And that’s what people keep telling themselves when they have to get up every morning in the Big Brother house. Though I think at this point money goes second to pride. There’s some real shoving going on in there, and I think just about everyone is ready to prove themselves. Rachel hates losing, but sometimes she fights so hard it goes beyond the game. She could never concede to anyone, for anything, and that makes her a great player but a huge threat.

Lawon Goes Up

Jeff took himself off the block earlier this morning. Unbelievably, Lawon volunteered to be the replacement nominee, so Kalia put him on the block. Lawon is under the mistaken impression that if he’s evicted, he’ll walk right back into the game. Trusting Shelly is the worst move that Kalia could have made.

Daniele and Kalia plan to ambush Rachel on Thursday and offer a deal for her to stay. Kalia openly wonders if that’s a good idea saying, “But what if Shelly and Adam make a deal with her first?” So sorry Kalia, it’s already been done. No doubt about it, the first time a noobie won HOH has been, and will continue to be, packed with drama.

Lawon Wins Big Brother Darwin Award

The last twelve hours have had some of the strangest twists & turns ever to occur on any of the thirteen Big Brother seasons. Shelly got the ball rolling with a masterful mental control move on Kalia. It worked far more powerfully than Shelly might have hoped, because at the end of the night Kalia had screwed herself and Dani into the ground, to the point of oblivion.

Worse, Lawon volunteered to make a suicide move without blinking, in fact he’s happy about it. Darwin’s theory depends on people as foolish as Lawon removing themselves from the gene pool, and he epitomizes the process. The pertinent Tweets are below, mostly in sequence, as the deal went down. All by @bbchatter unless otherwise noted.
