Dom & Adam Win Veto

Winning the Veto Competition was Adam and Domenic’s only hope for both of them to stay in the game.  Also playing were Jordan as HOH with Jeff, and Rachel and Brendon, whose chip was drawn.  Going in, Jeff and Jordan wanted to keep the nominations the same. Rachel and Brendan thought that taking Adam and Dom off would be good for their game. Dom wanted to win and take himself off the block and Adam would do his best to THROW the veto to get the golden key.

With Dom and Adam coming off the chopping block, another Duo will have to be nominated. Cassi is the next target on the Vet’s list, however Jordan has been getting buddy-buddy with Cassi since she won HOH. Shelly is in the Vets back pocket and they are sure that they will have the numbers to get her a golden key.

Rachel took a penalty to stay in the game and is eating slop for the next two weeks, though she ultimately lost the veto. No alcohol for her, you know Brenda is happy.

First Veto Wrap-Up

The first Veto competition and ceremony were completed yesterday, with Rachel and Brendon choosing not to use it. They took first in some sort of word / spelling game. From the sound of things it was no contest, Jeff + Jordan and Keith + Porsche weren’t even close. Brendon wanted to shake things up, but cooler heads prevailed: the nominations were left in place. Either Keith or Porsche is going home on Thursday.

BB Vultures

After watching the first show of the season, I have to say I think this will be a great cast. Along with the usual spitfires Allison Grodner seems to manufacture in a back closet somewhere, we were shown three duos consisting of past players. Evel Dick was in that mix. Declaring himself the only winner, despite the fact that Jordan was standing just a few feet away, he had already set a tone of dominance that would have, no doubt, been challenged many times in the next few months. But it wasn’t meant to be. Dani said she would get rid of him first chance, and whether or not it was her doing, the fact currently is, Dick is Dead. Or course as you know nothing in BB is set in stone. Things change. Players do come back.

Like many, I am happy to see Jeff and Jordan returning to the house. No one can forget the season these two battled between Natalie and her bestie Kevin. J & J provided much fun to a sometimes hostile house of lies and shouting matches. Ronnie, Chima, Lydia, Russell, and Michele were also part of that friction, yet Jeff and Jordan kept cool in the hammock with delightful talks peppered with laughter and romance. All while playing a smart game.

I remember the day when Jordan was counting fingers for mismatched convos Ratboy had conducted, and suddenly a light bulb went off. She really gave it to him that afternoon. She had guts and wasn’t afraid to take a stance. The entire house was unified, and I loved her for that. When she finally won HOH and received a letter from home stating her family had found a place to live, that was a beautiful moment. Despite some erratic, and let’s just say, dumb actions (can we say q-tips in the wall folks?) I think Jordan and Jeff could do really well this summer just as they did in BB 11.

But they need to watch their back, because Rachel and Brendon will rip these two apart like vultures later in the game and the rest of the house will smile and lick the bones clean. That’s just the nature of the game. Something tells me it won’t be long before we see the evil lurking within the newbies.

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.
