Shelly Gets The Editing Shaft From CBS - What Really Happened.

I originally posted this on I Love Reality.com but decided to post it here too so people can comment if they like.  Tonight I’m a bit peeved at CBS because of the way they edited the goings on that took place in the Big Brother house this past Sunday and Monday as it was shown on Wednesday night’s episode.

Before I begin - make sure to check out Scott's great as usual recap of tonight's show.  Click Here to go right to it.

I’m going to try to keep it short but I will include a bunch of Flashback times at the end so if you have the Big Brother Live Feeds you can go back and watch these things happen in real time.

What the TV viewer saw was Daniele mad at Kalia when Kalia is suddenly thinking about saving Rachel and then Lawon volunteering to go up as a replacement nominee for Jeff who had won the Power of Veto.  While what is shown is true in the very very basics,  the reality is so much different that it infuriated many of us that watch the live feeds and is an excellent example of how “Reality” shows are edited.

Here is what REALLY happened Sunday night and early Monday morning.

Kalia had decided to put up Adam as Jeff’s replacemnt.  While Daniele was pushing for Shelly to go up she deferred to Kalia’s wishes.  Either one going up would pretty much ensure that Rachel would be voted out on Thursday’s live show.

Shelly, wanting Rachel to stay since she is in an alliance with Jeff and Jordan and Rachel is as well,  worked on Kalia all day on Sunday – convincing her that she needed to do something to show she wasn’t Daniele’s pawn.  Shelly managed to get Kalia to seriously consider putting up Porsche and voting Porsche out of the house – in part because they are all concerned with the ‘twist’ that if Rachel was evicted but came right back – she would make Kalia her number one target.  She also planned to secure some type of promises from Rachel for hers and Daniele’s safety next week by doing this.

The ‘fight’ between Daniele and Kalia shown on Wednesday night’s show was in fact Daniele reacting to Kalia saying she wanted to put up Porsche instead of Adam.  Daniele was so mad at this that she actually said something to the effect that she might just play her own game from now on if Kalia was going to do this.  Daniele then stormed off telling her they would talk later and Kalia went to Shelly for yet more advice and reassurance.

A bit later Kalia told Adam she might nominate him and then Jeff showed up.  Shelly had informed Jeff of this new plan but played dub with Kalia who discussed saving Rachel by putting up Porsche.

This all took place between 7 & 10pm on Sunday night.

Jump ahead about three hour and you can see how Lawon becomes the new replacement.

Just before 1am early Monday morning and Kalia, Lawon and Daniele are in the HoH room. Daniele, frustrated with Kalias change of heart in not putting up Adam and sudden overall change in attitude, says in exasperation to just put her (Daniele) up and vote her out.  Kalia says she can’t do that – so Daniele says (as a joke in my opinion) to put up Lawon since he volunteered (Lawon had told Kalia to put him up as a nominee on Friday since everyone said he was a floater).  The amazing thing was Lawon then took the suggestion and ran with it!

So in my opinion, Shelly’s hard work earlier in the day opened the way for Lawon to be the replacement nominee.

Here are the flashback times to catch most of the action – you will need a subscription to the Big Brother Live Feeds to watch – you can get a FREE three day trial by clicking > this link < or any banner on the site.

Shelly convinces Kalia to put up Porsche – Flashback Times (8/7/2011):

  • 7pm cameras 1/2 Shelly suggests putting up Porsche to Kalia – telling her it will garner the faith of Jeff and Jordan and show that she is her own person – not doing Daniele’s bidding.  In reality Shelly is doing this because she wants Porsche out – and feels keeping Rachel in will keep a target off Jeff and Jordan that much longer.
  • 7:25pm cams 3/4 Kalia tells Dani about this plan – Daniele is NOT pleased with the idea at all.
  • 8:12pm cams 3/4 The convo with Daniele wraps up.  Daniele leaves saying they can talk about things later.
  • 8:18pm cams 3/4 Kalia talks to Shelly again – Shelly re-enforces the plan she suggested earlier.
  • 8:42pm cam 3/4Shelly fills Jeff in on plan – he is shocked.
  • 8:44pm cam 3/4Kalia talks to Adam – tells him he may go up as a pawn.
  • 8:45pm cam 3/4Kalia talks to Jeff – tells her she is considering putting up Porsche but she would need major promises from Rachel that she would be safe.
  • 9:05pm Cam 1/2 Jeff finishes talking to Kalia – heads out and asks Shelly where ‘that’ came from and Shelly replies, “Me baby!”  Later Shelly tells Jeff that she is not going to quit (on this plan) until Porsche is out.
  • 9:25pm cam 3/4 Jeff tells Jordan that Kalia has proposed going after Porsche.
  • 9:56pm Cam 3/4 Kalia talking to Shelly again at the hammock – filling her in on her conversation with Jeff.

The decision is made to put up Lawon – Flashback times (8/8/2011):

  • 12:48am cams 1/2 – This is where it first really seems to begin with Daniele mostly joking to Kalia to put HER up – then Dani says to put up Lawon since he volunteered (Lawon is in the room when this happens).
  • 12:54am cam 1/2 Lawon seems to be considering it – Porsche is in the room now as well.
  • 1:24am Feeds cam 1/2 return after a break – we find Kalia and Daniele alone in the HoH room – reacting to Lawon’s crazy suggestion that he would be willing to be voted out.
  • 1:32am cam 3/4 Kalia tells Shelly about Lawon volunteering to go up – Shelly thinks he is crazy but then says, “Fine with me.”
  • 1:42am cam 1/2 Lawon says if he goes up he can play the ‘mad’ roll and try to ‘spy’ on the other hgs for information.
  • 1:53pm Cam 1/2 Daniele has Lawon tell Kalia about his ‘plan’ to gather info.  To me it is just Daniele stroking Lawon’s ego and encouraging this crazy plan.
  • 2:07am – cam 1/2 Dani, Lawon and Porsche back in the Candy Room – talking about this master plan to vote out Lawon.  Dani says to Lawon, “This is your moment to shine.”

Big Brother Season 13, Episode 15 Recap

Tonight’s episode may as well be titled “Stuck on Stupid”, as almost this entire hour is going to consist of dumb people doing and saying dumb things. The first few segments will continue to feature that red-headed banshee screaming for her feeeee-awwwn-say, as if she’s the only person to ever be separated from their boyfriend.

We’ve seen enough of this act the past two seasons, however, so it’s the second half that’s noteworthy. Seriously, the two most idiotic decision in Big Brother history (and I’m not exaggerating with that claim) should be shown tonight (unless there is some selective editing on one person’s behalf).

How will this happen? Let’s just say that these people’s moronic thought processes are trumped by a chain-smokin’, Bush-lovin’, catchphrase babblin’ person of questionable gender. You’re going to marvel as she takes less than a few minutes to infiltrate Kalia’s clean slate of a brain. The next time the Republicans have the White House, their first move should be to hire this person to head the CIA. She’s that good, or is the rest of the house that bad? That’s a tough question.

So let’s get moving with the clichéd responses to Kalia’s nominations of Jeff and Rachel, along with Rachel’s silly actions against Daniele. As we see her follow Daniele away from the nomination table, Shelly grabs her and tells her to calm down. Rachel complains in the diary room that Kalia is “reciting a script that Daniele has given her”. Kalia denies it, saying that she’s on the block because she’s “immature, catty, and ridiculous, and your behavior after the nomination ceremony is example A”. Hmmm, how quickly people forget, though.

Oh, we almost forgot about Jeff, who is also pissed that she put up two great competitors, and the one evicted may come back. Daniele, of course, is still cocky about the situation. “If Kalia is going to put blood on her hands, then I’m going to the bathroom to wash mine.”

Meanwhile, Shelly is still trying to calm Rachel down. She pulls her into the purple room, and says she’s worried that she may do something that will cause her to be kicked out. “I don’t care”, responds Rachel. “I’m going home. What does it matter?” Shelly continues to plead with her, and Rachel complains that Daniele has turned everybody against her. Shelly throws out the magic words, though. “Brendon doesn’t want to see you that way, Rachel.” Uh oh. Yeah, you know the words that come out of Rachel’s mouth after this.

The discussion concludes with Rachel saying she doesn’t want to stay in the house, and storms off. She heads into the have-not room and starts packing. “This isn’t worth money”, she whines to Jordan. “I’m so tired of everyone acting like I’m such a bad person. Daniele tore up Brendon and I, and she did it on purpose to hurt my feelings.” Jordan unpacks the stuff that Rachel has packed as she continues on about losing Brendon. Clench those eyes tighter, Rachel, so we can see a tear or two.

Jordan continues to attempt to cheer up Rachel, and in the diary room says its “tough work”. Yeah, I bet. Yet CBS continues to plague us with this footage as Rachel continues on and on about how she can’t survive without her Brennon. Please, poke my eyes and ears out immediately!

The camera now switches to the next bedroom, and Daniele and Porsche laugh at what they’re hearing. Yeah, this is also worthless, as Daniele says she suddenly likes that rarely-seen bimbo.

Daniele is now upstairs in the HOH, and Kalia now has tears in her eyes. Being a player instead of a floater is hard work, she says. Yet Kalia believes she can win. “I want to leave here knowing I left on my own doing; knowing that I came here to play.” They see everybody talking in the kitchen, and so she puts her head up against the door to hear Jeff talking about being players and not followers. Yeah, this doesn’t help Kalia’s mood, and she begins wailing. This is just terrible TV, although she does set the stage for her upcoming idiocy by saying in the diary room that she wants to do “anything” to get Jeff off her back.

After the commercial break, it is time to pick veto players. Jeff doesn’t want Daniele to play, and he promises to win. Rachel, of course, also says she HAS to win because she’s playing alone. Kalia pulls out Adam’s name, Jeff gets Shelly, and Rachel gets house guest choice. She picks Jordan. The host is Porsche.

Before we get to the competition, Shelly pulls Jordan and Jeff into the bedroom for a pep talk. Jordan asks if she’s “with us solid”. Shelly can’t believe what she’s hearing, and says she’s “never gone off the page once” before storming out of the room. Jordan starts crying, and Jeff says he “can’t take it anymore”. Yes, this is the token Jeff and Jordan cuteness for this episode.

Knowing he has to do some “damage control”, Jeff heads into another room to talk to Shelly. We get some silly story about how from the very beginning she has done everything to ensure Jeff and Jordan make it to the end. After a minute or so, Shelly is smiling again.

It’s now comp time, and for some reason we have to endure Jordan describing the competition. Rachel says she knows how the game works, but refuses to tell Shelly because “the entire house is against me”. Yes, Rachel, we know. The game has a Greek theme, and they have to roll a ball up a ramp and run around to catch it. Any ball that hits the ground causes a reset. The first one to get to 300 balls wins.

After listening to everybody once again claim they need to win, the contest finally begins. Oh yeah, we have to listen to another explanation of the rules from Adam. Jordan is having problems, of course, and Rachel’s plan is to win using “speed and accuracy”. Of course, this means we get to see her drop the ball multiple times, which makes Daniele laugh.

Surprisingly, Adam is slightly in the lead over Jeff, which means we get a “ball” joke from Jordan. Stupid Kalia notices, and decides to “take a break”. Shelly also drops her ball, and seeing she’s way behind Adam and Jeff also decides she’s out of the running. Kalia begins rooting for Jeff, which pisses off Daniele. Adam is in the lead near the 300 mark, and gets cocky in the diary room before we head to commercials.

When we return, Adam is tied with Jeff at 290. Jeff finally pulls ahead at 202, and goes on to win by two points. While Jeff celebrates, Rachel is once again pissed off. Kalia is obviously also happy, but doesn’t want to make any more enemies in the house.

Everybody heads inside, and we get the second Rachel pity party. Yeah, you know the script. Jeff comes in, and says that if Porsche becomes the replacement nominee she’ll be saved. Jeff acknowledges that she’s a bigger baby than his young niece, but it is in his best interest if Rachel stays. Jordan, though, thinks that she will be the nominee, and this will mean “war”.

The two head up to the HOH, and Kalia reiterates that she never wanted Jeff to go home. Her goal has been to target Rachel the entire time, but Jeff doesn’t want to hear it. “Personally, it was a stupid game move. If Rachel had won, then I would have gone home.” He asks if the risk was worth her reward, and Kalia responds that she never thought Jeff would be THAT pissed. He still claims that he will be going against her, but Kalia hopes that Jeff will settle down by NOT putting up Jordan as the replacement. Jeff says he’s “not buying it”.

Ok, here’s the point where, CBS editing crews willing, we see the game move of the year. Before we get to that, however, we have to endure Adam shaving off his beard. Really? The best segment of the year, and it is being cut down for more Adam nonsense?

Before we get to Shelly, we see Rachel babbling to Kalia about joining her side. Again, this is like every single one of Rachel’s previous pleas to those who nominate her – pleads, promises, and a little bit of threats. Yet CBS makes it look like Kalia is actually considering the move. No, that comes later.

Daniele now enters the HOH, and Kalia informs her about the possibility of keeping Rachel. Wait, what? We’re not getting the Shelly segment??? Obviously, Daniele is pissed! And so are the viewers who saw how this actually happened on the live feeds!!!

Now Porsche and Lawon are in the HOH with Daniele and Kalia, and Lawon volunteers to be put up!!! “I’ll come back and be like, ok, oh well, let’s play this game.” The rest of the room can’t believe their ears! He adds in the diary room that he believes he’d come back “with some special powers. We’re going to sail to the top. How you like me now?” I hope those powers include brains, my friend. Daniele thinks this is a win-win for her, as she can possibly make a deal with Rachel. Even Kalia thinks he’s “out of his mind”. Once he leaves, Daniele and Kalia laugh about the situation. You shouldn’t laugh too loud, because you did get played by footage CBS decided not to show us. Motherfuckers!

It is now veto ceremony time, and I can barely continue writing in my rage. In fact, I’m not even going to watch. Viewers undoubtedly heard the standard lines about not wanting to be on the block (besides Lawon), and Jeff used the veto on himself. Lawon is the new nominee, and everybody is laughing behind his back. Nice work, CBS. Besides a house full of morons, you refuse to let us view what really went down this week.

So what are your thoughts? Are you as pissed as me? Is Lawon the biggest moron in the BB history? Or is it chicken-shit Kalia? And who wants to bet that Brendon is the person who returns tomorrow? Let me know your thoughts.

Random Question Wednesday #1

OK, so things are slow in the house. Well relatively slow that is. The plans are still on for Lawon to go on his merry way tomorrow evening and, barring a Big Brother miracle, we won't see him again unless it's finale night or in flashbacks.

So how about I toss some random questions out there to all of you and see what sticks? If it goes well, it could be a regular thing. If it doesn't go well, we can forget this whole thing ever happened. ;)

 

  1. Who is dumber? Kalia or Lawon?
  2. Who is smarter? Porsche or the fish in the HOH room?
  3. If Dick had not left the house, do you think he would still be in the game at this point?
  4. Who is your favorite previous Big Brother houseguest that you follow on Twitter or on Facebook? (Please include their Twitter handle or a link to their Facebook page for others)
  5. What was your favorite Big Brother season ever?
  6. Does my favorite houseguest this season (Keith) have a chance in hell of coming back into the game? Please explain why or why not. *hehe*
  7. If you could send a note to one of the houseguests STILL in the house, who would you send the note to and what would you tell them?
  8. Who are your favorite singers or bands of all time?
  9. What is the best place in the world you have ever been to and why?
  10. What came first - the chicken or the egg?

Now please raise your right hand and swear on anything you want to and answer these questions truthfully and to the best of your ability in the Comments below. And definitely feel free to discuss your answers amongst yourselves. Can't wait to see your answers!

The Martyr And The Dumbass

In this particular story, the Martyr and the Dumbass are the same Yale sporting, "Ka-Pow" screaming, handsomefied individual.  Most of you already know that Kalia is HOH, Rachel and Jeff are nominated. Jeff won POV, and is coming off the block, and there is a chance for the evicted house guest to come back into the game this Thursday after battling whoever America votes for out of the already evicted house guests.  Everyone has pretty much been expecting and known that Rachel would be the one going out, and no one in the house is all that sad about it save for the small inkling that she may get to come back in the house and try to get her revenge like a proper woman scorned.  As the day has progressed, Kalia in particular has become more and more concerned about the idea of Rachel bouncing back in the house and winning HOH ultimately sending home she or Dani.

Well ladies and gents, I shit you not, as I type this, at this very moment, a plan has been formed.  Not by the vets, not by the anti floater squad, and not even by an enemy.  A plan from the mouth of Lawon himself has come into play.  Lawon, of his own idea and will has volunteered to not only be the one who goes up on the block in tomorrows veto ceremony, but to also be the one evicted on Thursday because he is so positive he is coming right back into the game.  The irony in this situation? He is wearing a Yale sweatshirt as he puts this entire plan together.

Daniele, and Porsche have been discussing the plan with him and how they will act and pretend that he is a pawn until the last minutes Thursday when they all vote him out because he has been acting "sketchy".  Ultimately, the choice to put him on the block or not will be up to Kalia, who I have not heard weigh in on it yet, but somehow me thinks she will be ok with it since earlier today she was thinking of putting up Porsche in hopes of not dealing with a wronged Rachel returning.

 

 

I have been watching Big Brother for a long time and have honestly not really ever seen anything like this.  If it really happens, it may go down in BB history as one of the dumbest game moves ever.  Just thought I would fill you guys in.  I don't have all the details yet since this discussion just started, so fellow bloggers feel free to add on as you find info, and readers feel free to comment what you know, or even just what you think of the idea in general. Holy hell, things are getting interesting!!
