Things Just Got Interesting - Power of Veto Results

As expected today, Jeff used the Power of Veto and removed Porsche as a nominee - then put up Daniele in her place.  Some Houseguests said they were surprised, like Rachel, who was both surprised and very happy.  Others knew it was coming, like Daniele who told Kalia and Porsche very early this morning after a talk with Jeff that she knew he was putting her up.

So what got interesting?  Shelly seems to have decided to dump Team "JeJo" and try to save Daniele.  It taked 3 votes to evict this week - and so its the newbies that will decide it.  Shelly, Porsche and Adam have the power this week - Jordan and Rachel will vote as Jeff wants - and Jeff wants Daniele out.

Shelly and Porsche seem to both want to keep Daniele - I think Shelly realizes that she is the 4th member of the alliance with Jeff, Jordan and Rachel.  Shelly talked to Adam and laid it out for him - that Jeff and Jordan will be loyal to Rachel and take her to the end or as far as they can because people will not vote for her.

I don't know if this will happen (Daniele staying)- and it will be a double eviction so the second person could very easily be Daniele even if she manages to stay through the first vote. 

What this does provide is the annual chance to discuss production and how they try to influence the vote.  It is pretty clear that Daniele has a MUCH larger following than Kalia so they would rather she stay around.  Expect Adam to get loads and loads of questions in the Diary Room about the advantages of keeping Daniele, perhaps questions about where he stacks up in the alliance with Jeff and Jordan.  If he feels safe if Rachel wins the next HoH (If Dani stays her odds of beating Rachel for HoH seem better than Kalia and even if Rachel won she would target Danie were she still in the house).  He might also be reminded about his issues with Kalia, they were each others number one targets the first couple weeks.

We'll be listening to Adam talk about his DR sessions to see if he complains that they keep asking about Daniele.  What do you think - does Daniele have a shot?  Do you think Adam can be convinced?  Are you surprised Shelly apparently has flipped just like that?
