Big Brother Season 13, Episode 9 Recap

Once again, there will be no lengthy opening to this episode. We know what we’re getting tonight, and it’s almost 100% silliness. There will be a veto competition and meeting, and lots of Rachel. Oh yeah, and lots of another woman that doesn’t want anybody to get between her and her…um, little boy. The only real suspense of the evening is whether we see Kalia, Porsche, or Lawon at any point during the show.

Let’s begin with Rachel’s nominations of Adam and Dominic, but they both think they’re pawns. Jeff points out that Rachel tends told a grudge, so it’s always hard to predict what she’s going to do. He’s just happy it wasn’t him and Jordan this week. Daniele is clearly bummed, but she still has hope to “make Rachel make a big move in this game”.

Adam and Dom head into the have-not room, and Dom says that it’s clear that Brenchel are threatened by them. Adam takes that to mean because of his mental abilities and Dom’s athleticism. Um, yeah. No comment. Adam also hopes that in the veto they’ll be playing against Kalia and Lawon instead of Jeff and Jordan again. In the diary room, Dom says he’s just feeling Adam out a bit because they’ve barely talked.

Oooh, Rachel is outside the door listening in, and she finally walks in. Adam gets all nervous and whines “we…we…we…we’re all just going through scenarios”. Rachel talks him down a bit by saying that this is a week where “it’s a veto week”. She says that she’s open to making deals, although she says in the diary room that she doesn’t think she can trust them. The decision is to wait until after the veto competition. Dom is pissed because he thinks they already have a deal.

Now we get to see Dom and Daniele flirt. Gag me, please. Dom asks if she has a plan for setting up Jeff and Jordan, and we get a few of Daniele’s patented “blah blah blahs”. Dom is willing to allow any “magic” Daniele can create. I’m sure the virgin boy is up for anything.

Rachel plays right into Daniele’s plan by complaining to her that Jordan never talks to her. Daniele says if they put up Jeff and Jordan everybody would be on their side next week. Daniele thinks her plan is a go.

Ugh, now we get to see Rachel and Brendon take a bubble bath together. Please God, turn this off now! Brendon asks what Rachel is thinking right now, but admits that he doesn’t think the luxury prize was truly a game play snub. “I think it says a lot about their view of us. Obviously, we’re not that important.” This goes on a bit, designed to let us think that it really is possible that they’ll put up Jeff and Jordan.

Another scene, another few minutes of Rachel air time. She’s lying in bed with Porsche, and Dom comes into the HOH. He asks Porsche to leave, and tells Rachel he is 100% behind them. Brendon walks in, and the same conversation continues. Dom asks if he should throw the veto comp, and Brendon says he should. “I’d rather get out somebody who I know I don’t trust.”

After a commercial break, it’s more cutesy shit with Daniele and Dom. She walks into the have-not room, and even Adam says that it’s like watching 10 year-olds flirt. The two head outside to work out, and the sickening flirtations begin. Unconvincingly, Daniele says in the diary room that it’s a “love/hate relationship. He loves me and I hate him.” Really? In the background, a lightbulb alerts Jeff that maybe the two do have something going on.

It’s now time to pick players for the veto competition. Surprise, surprise, the extra couple playing is once again Jeff and Jordan! Nice work, CBS! Daniele is pissed!

Time for more cutesy shit, but this time it is Jeff and Jordan. After some banter, Jeff says he wants to get rid of Daniele “sooner rather than later”. Jordan wonders if Daniele will come with them if Dom is booted.

Meanwhile, Daniele continues to work her perfected brand of negativity on Brendon and Rachel. She asks if everything is set up with Dom, and Rachel says he’s agreed to throw the veto. “WHY??? I think you guys need him to win!” Brendon says that he wants to win the POV so he can “choose who goes home this week”. Suddenly, Rachel wonders if backdooring Jeff is better for their game or Daniele’s game. They both think she’s pushing this idea too hard.

Jeff and Jordan then walk into the room, and Brendon asks about their feelings about her. Jeff says she’s “in the best position in the house”. She’s “just playing the middle road” the whole game so far, even though she’s bitching the whole time. Rachel is still confused…as always.

Finally, we get to the veto competition, and it involves tiny rubber duckys and a giant, hairy lady in a bathtub. Ok, there’s the Lawon cameo for this episode. It’s again an individual competition, and everybody must pull “hairs” that have letters printed on the “root” out of the lady. In case you forgot about Jeff’s problem with “technotronics”, we get a replay from his season. The winner is the person who spells the longest word.

Before it begins, we have to hear from everybody how they have to win, and after it starts we get tonight’s Kalia cameo as she again complains about hair. Jordan perfectly plays her trademark dumb blonde role in her commentary…well, they all say stupid shit as the game goes on.

The game finally ends, and we get to see the words. Jordan spelled “little”, although she says she wanted to spell farting. Dom spelled “standings”, which puts him in the lead. Brendon is pissed that he spelled a long word. Rachel attempted to spell “moisturizing”, but screws it up. Adam’s word is “fractions”, so he’s now tied with Dominic (but is in the lead because he hit the buzzer before him). Jeff correctly spelled “expresses”, so he’s now in the lead for beating Adam to the buzzer. It’s now up to Brendon, and his word is “understanding”. Yes, Brendon has won the POV.  

Dom thinks that Brendon’s victory means that he is safe, while Adam is “really nervous”. Brendon says he couldn’t be happier, because a lot of people are “trying to get in our heads right now”. Rachel and Brendon are now in control over who leaves the house this week.

Oh boy, Daniele is now really pissed. She’s laying out with Rachel, who asks about putting up Lawon and Kalia instead of Jeff and Jordan. She tells Rachel that they have Dom “in your picket”, and it’s stupid to not put out a big target when they have a chance.

Wait, Shelly is actually in the house…talking nonsense with Dom. He asks her what his chances are if Brendon doesn’t use the veto, and says he know that he has Daniele’s vote “because Dani wants to play with me down the road”. Uh oh, that wasn’t too smart. He says that they can “cut one of these pairs”. Shelly plays with him a bit, and says that both of the men need to go at some point. Shelly says in the diary room that “if he’s going after Jeff and Jordan that’s not good for me”.

The next day, Shelly tells all to Jordan. “He thinks if he gets rid of Jeff, you won’t come after him because you’re so sweet.” Jordan says that she thinks this all comes from Daniele, and Jordan says they need to talk to Rachel.

They wake up Rachel, and Brendon also wanders in. Jordan asks if they’re going to use the veto, and after Brendon demurs a bit she gives Shelly the floor to tell the entire story…or at least her version of it. Rachel is pissed that Dom “has the audacity to try to form a second alliance to try to come after the veterans again”. Imagine that line in a complete whine. Terrible, right? Shelly leaves the room, and Jordan says that keeping Dom would make them all stronger. Brendon’s plan is to not let Daniele know that they’re on to her.

It’s now Jeff’s turn to hear what’s going on with Dom and Daniele, and Brendon tells him the entire story about putting up Jeff and Jordan. No need to repeat what else is mentioned, as it becomes another of their trademark circular conversations.

Thankfully, it’s time for the veto meeting. Despite five minutes of babbling, all that you need to know is that Brendon did not use the veto.

Let me know what you think of all of this silliness. How was the editing this time? Are you excited for the couples twist to end?

Dom's Final Plea

The long-awaited conversation between Dominic, Jeff, and Brendon is happening this very second. Dom is claiming he never wanted to go after Jeff, and he's the "scapegoat" for an unnamed other person's (Daniele, whose name never comes up) plan. Jeff is doing most of the replying, and it's already starting to be a circular discussion going nowhere. 

Jeff's point is that even if it wasn't Dom's plan to target Jeff, he went with it and never attempted to let Jeff know about it until they were found out. "You are tainted by her." Dom eventually claimed that he'll drop his "realtionship" with Danielle, which we all know will last as long as it takes for him to walk downstairs.

Meanwhile, Kalia has finally realized her dream of being in cahoots with the vets is over...or never was. She has pulled Lawon aside, and has actually cleared the air about her previous lack of trust in him. She admitted that she was one of the stray votes against Keith, and that they need to team up from here on out. They have decided to keep acting the same towards each other so nobody is on to their new partnership.

House Meeting High Points

For those of you sleeping like you should be, the vets all called their house meeting tonight (11:45pm on feed one and two) with the intention of feeling out Daniele's allegiance, and seeing where she stood with the veteran alliance.  Not a lot was accomplished.  Brendon gave a speech about sticking together and why it's important that they do not break. He listed reasons why he has had faith in the five of them since week one etc.. 

Jeff then gave his speech as to why he was feeling uneasy about keeping Dominic.  He talked about how he had heard rumors and had to assume they were coming from somewhere, but "since it isn't his own alliance" he would have to believe it came from Dom, and therefore would rather vote him out.

 

Then, the room went completely silent while everyone waited for Daniele to talk.  She didn't, so Rachel made a few comments about how it doesn't matter who is friends with who or who is making out with who to which Daniele snapped back and threw some verbal punches at Rachel.  Daniele then lied lied lied to save her butt, saying that she was always and still is completely on board and loyal to the five vets and no one else. She swore on her grandmother's life and on her own life that she had never talked games with any of the newbies and that they only stay up until 6am because they are friends. She called Shelly a spy  (which she is) and continually stated that she had not been gaming with any of the newbies and that Dom had thrown the veto so that he could stay. I guess we will get to see if that's true on the Weds. episode. The more nervous she got, the more her verbal ticks kicked in. Lots of "blah blah blah, sketchy sketchy, awkward" etc...

Then, for the rest of the meeting, Daniele was snarky and looked angry while saying she agrees with everything they were saying. Brendon, Jeff, and Rachel tried to make it sound like everything was fine, and Jordan didn't say much of anything. 

Afterword, Daniele ran downstairs and "blah blah blah'd" to "PT" about her problems while Jordan, Jeff, Brendon, and Rachel continued to talk about how they definitely do not trust Daniele at this point and the plan is still to vote out Dominic and possibly try to get Daniele out this coming week.  To my dismay, other than a few sarcastic snarky comments from Daniele, there were really no fireworks, but it will be interesting to see her reaction if Dom goes home this week, and especially if she does not win the following HOH.  Despite my overall boredom and dislike for this season, I am kind of excited to see what happens.  Predictions anyone?

POV Spoiler

Everyone's stupid
Everyone's stupid
Even my family, whatever that's worth
Everyone's stupid
Everyone's stupid
Here in my family, whatever that's worth
- Paul Westerberg, "Everyone's Stupid"
Poor little Daniele. She has all the answers for her to walk away with the prize money, but she's just too smart for the imbeciles she is forced to endure every day. You can just see the disdain in her eyes as she talks to every single person in the house...except for the new love in her life, Nick...I mean Dominic.
Yep, little mini-Evel Dick is again playing with her private parts instead of her head. I don't mean this literally, of course, although the Beavis side of my brain does currently have some nice visions. No, she sees Dom as her ticket to mental, physical, and financial freedom. Ok, maybe that's a bit of an exageration. The truth is she sees Dom as the little boytoy she can use to do all of her dirty work to make it to the end, and the fact that Brendon and Rachel's loins don't light up in his presence is getting in her way.
What does our too-cool-for-the-room twit do when she doesn't get her way? She pouts. She whines. She demeans everybody, including the people she's sharing private thoughts. There's no plan B with this girl. Instead of possibly working on securing the votes to save the virgin man-boy, she marches up to the HOH and tells Brendon he and his girl are gutless. Yep, that will work.
Needless to say, it didn't work. Brendon didn't use the veto, so Adam and Dom are still on the block. Daniele is outside pouting, Rachel still doesn't understand why she can't walk on water, and Brendon is still lecturing. Jeff and Dom just had a few heated words (with Shelly spying on them outside the doorway), and there's once again talk of a house meeting. Oh, that should be good.
