Guess Who Won The POV

Happy Saturday afternoon everybody! After two-and-a-half hours of trivia time on the live feeds, the Big Brother gods finally turned the switch back on and allowed us to find out who won the Power of Veto competition.

But first, let's go back to nominations. Daniele nominated Brendon and Rachel for eviction yesterday with the primary target being for Brendon to go. I can't wait to see the nomination on tomorrow night's show because Daniele called them the king and queen in it. Teehee!

The players competing in the POV competition today were Daniele, Brendon, Rachel, Jeff, Adam, and Porsche. Brendon's been telling Rachel that if he won he'd use the POV on her so that she would stay in the game. Well of course he would do that being such a fine gentleman and all right? Right.

So when the feeds finally came back today, it was (dun dun dun duuunnn!) Brendon that won!

It sounds like the competition involved (perhaps) having to guess how long it might take them to go through an obstacle course. There's been mention so far of having to do a puzzle and cross a balance beam.

Jeff was upset at himself for losing by two seconds. Shelly was in the HOH room telling Daniele (and the always up Daniele's ass Kalia) that she thought there was no way that Brendon would use the POV to save Rachel and would really save himself but that she would talk to Brendon to get that not to happen. When Shelly left the HOH room, Daniele remarked to Kalia that there's something up with Shelly. Well duh!

Brendon has reiterated to Rachel that he'll use the POV on her so if that stays the same until the POV ceremony on Monday afternoon, he'll still be on the block. It's been expected that Jordan would take Rachel's place on the block if Rachel won POV or was saved so that might stay the plan. However, there was a mention by Daniele to Kalia that perhaps Shelly could go on the block.  I'm not sure that would happen though.

So what do you think about this turn of events? Are you happy that Brendon won the POV? Do you think it's smart to put Jordan up on the block in Rachel's place? Do you think that there's a chance Jordan could be evicted over Rachel? Tell me what you're thinking in the comments!

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.

Daniele Overplays Her Hand

As noted on our show last night, the rest of the vets are starting to catch on to Daniele's game. Yesterday was quite humorous watching everybody have private conversations and then race to tell everybody else (including Daniele) what the others said. Daniele is pushing to have Adam and Dom replaced on the block with Jeff and Jordan, but while it at times seemed like it could actually happen those four are starting to compare notes. 

Earlier today, Brendon had a talk with Adam, and basically lectured him on how to play the game. As usual, Adam nodded his head to everything Brendon said, and will probably be saved. Now Rachel is informing Jeff that Daniele's plan was to have him evicted, with Shelly possibly her next target. 

Best part of the day? Rachel making deals to throw the next HOH. Um, homegirl, you're not playing next week.

I'll end this short post with a couple of bikini pics, as Sunday is always a sun day.

Nominations and Power of Veto Results

Just a quick update since Hamsterdame, Ash and Scott are all hating this week....  (I kid), yesterday Rachel made her nominations and for the second time Adam and Dominic found themselves up on the block.  The difference is that last week Dominic was the target of Jeff and Jordan, this week it is Adam that Rachel and Jeff would like to see leave the house.

Meanwhile Daniele is actually tossing out the idea of going after Jeff and Jordan, saying that if they were to get Jeff out now it would be one less vote against them because she feels if they vote Jeff and Jordan out and into the Jury they will hold a grudge against them and vote for somone else to win.  Clearly Daniele is hoping to get Rachel and Brendon to do the dirty work.

Today was the Power of Veto competition, amazingly Jeff and Jordan were selected yet again to play, granted it was in theory a 50-50 chance that they be selected - the other couple being Lawon and Kalia but there has always been people, including house guests that suspect there may be something funny with the 'chips' in the POV bag since they are not allowed to inspect the unseen chips after the names have been selected.

Details have yet to come out of what was involved in the POV competition but we do now know that Brendon won it.  Now we will see if Rachel and Brendon decide to keep Adam as their target, redirect their aim on Lawon, or turn the house upside down and put up Jeff and Jordan with the idea of eliminating Jeff and possibly separating Jeff and Jordan for the summer with one in and one out of the Jury House.

Be sure to listen late Saturday night or Sunday for Episode #4 of the Big Brother Gossip Show where we will discuss all this and more.  Look for a new post on the site Saturday night!

The Brenchel Edit

I've found over the course of the past two years that the best way to tell if a person is a live feeder or not is their opinion of Brendon and Rachel. If one spouts nothing but positivity on them or their relationship, I know they only watch the CBS broadcasts. If their very presence annoys the shit out of them, it's safe to say they have spent plenty of time viewing the live stream.

I don't know who they know at the network, but it's clear they have some sort of connection. Throughout both of their seasons, the camera views rarely leave them. Even when they're in a room with many people, you can bet the "closeup cam" is focused on Rachel. When the two are alone, whether it's in the HOH or outside on the hammock, the vast majority of the time all FOUR cam views feature these two bozos.

This wouldn't be as infuriating if CBS didn't completely alter the footage used of the pair. Last year, network viewers were led to believe they were a modern day Prince and Princess; two angelic people brought together by a reality show, destined to live happily ever after. Live feeders saw it completely different - she was a shrill, annoying narcissist, expecting the world to revolve around her, while he was a self-proclaimed expert in everything who could have been a doctor, lawyer, astronaut, President, dictator. Only when the fight with Ragan was televised did viewers have any clue as to her unbearable nature.

Yet last season's edit is nothing compared to this year. As noted in earlier posts, Rachel is a shell of what we saw last year. What little soul she had is scrubbed completely out of her body. There's not a day that goes by without him pulling her aside to belittle her for the smallest sins. In fact, it generally happens at least three times a day. She can't talk to others without being yelled at by him. She can't look in another direction without being read the riot act. I'm surprised he doesn't get pissed whenever she takes a dump.

Like last year, though, CBS-only viewers have no clue as to Brendon's mental abuse. On last Sunday and Thursday's episode, snippets of them "fighting" were shown. Sunday's segment was primarily about plastic surgery, and it was turned into a "I love you the way you are" kissfest from Brendon. Thursday's portion of the show was a two-parter that occurred earlier in the week that had to do with Brendon's pet name, "Bookie". Both of these incidents were ugly to view in real-time, but once again the editors (and clearly coached diary room narration) transformed hours of bitching into a "I love her oh so much even though she's so silly") wink and nod. 

It will be interesting to see what is shown on Sunday, as the jealous, bitchy Rachel that we knew last year returned after the network telecast concluded. Rachel picked a fight with Cassi for no real reason, and once again Brendon (along with, but much more calmly,  Daniele and Jordan) belittled her for hours. As this is a big part of the week's plotline, it's going to be extremely tough to give her the same positive edit she's enjoyed so far this season.
