Big Brother Season 13, Episode 4 Recap

Somebody’s dream is about to be squashed tonight, and I couldn’t be happier. On the one hand you have Keith, failed star of dating shows whose plan of creating “Keith’s Girls” was extinguished moments after entering the house. On the other hand you have Porsche, whose reasoning for being on the show has nothing to do with prize money and all to do with this idiotic fantasy of having a film crew documenting her post-Big Brother life.

Truthfully, I could care less who heads home tonight, but it’s safe to say that we’ll NEVER hear from the evictee again. Keith will go back home and stammer out sermons in between chasing local girls with little self-esteem. Porsche’s future is destined to remain at that (non)-exclusive nightclub, where she’ll serve overpriced foo-foo drinks until a businessman twice her age makes her his second (or third) wife. What’s the future of the person who survives the evening? Look for them to be the first evictee after the Golden Key is turned in.

Before we get to that fantasy-extinguishing moment, we have to sit through a few minutes of filler, including a segment or two to make it look like either of them have a 50/50 shot of staying. After a overly-long intro and an intro by Julie, we get the expected reactions to Rachel’s decision to not use the veto. Nothing that’s said is worth repeating, except Porsche’s claim that she’s a strong competitor. Yeah, right.

Porsche and Keith have a conversation, and Keith is suddenly sweet-talking the twit. Porsche is having none of it, though. “You can tell Keith is lying when his lips are moving.” Oh snap! She lets him know that she’s prepared to handle anything that he tells the others.

We jump into the have/not room, and Dom says that he wants Porsche gone. Cassi wastes no time in agreeing, and Lawon says it also sounds cool to him. “They (vets) see Porsche as this weak twit”, Cassi says. In the diary room, Cassi admits that Keith has played a terrible game, but he’s a better choice to stay than Porsche.

The vets don’t agree, though. In the HOH, Rachel is saying that Keith has to go. They’ve finally realized that the numbers game doesn’t work for them, and Jeff thinks they need to go after Adam or Cassi’s vote. Working on that goal, the vets decide to socialize with the noobs. Oh God, I have to hear Rachel’s “Big Booty” bullshit again. For some reason, we also have to endure “Vegas Rachel” as she does some awful booty dancing, accompanied by a drum circle performed by the rest of the house.

Dominic is actually showing some smart, though, as he’s not buying the suddenly nice side that’s being shown by Rachel and the rest of the vets. “What are you trying to do? How are you trying to manipulate me, and what are you trying to get out of me?”

Ok, this segment goes on a bit too long, as Rachel starts calling Brendon “Bootie”. Brendon says that’s an affectionate name she has for him, but he doesn’t like the rest of the house knowing that. He calls her over, and after saying in the diary room that she’s no longer “a Vegas party girl”, he starts complaining to her for revealing that dumb name. Hell, it’s better than “Ashy Penis”. Ugh, he calls it “protecting Rachel”.

WTF? This is the most sanitized version of a fight I’ve ever seen, as the piano music jumps in as Rachel says “I love you” over and over. Finally, he starts whining, and it’s nothing like how it actually happened as they accentuate his “I love you” comments over his more hateful lines. He finally turns off the light to go to bed, saying he doesn’t care if she doesn’t sleep with him.

After a commercial break, we get part two of the romanticized version of Rachel fighting with Brendon. She complains about him being mean to her, and as always she apologizes over and over. He continues to whine, and finally snarkily says he accepts it. “You have a hot, beautiful fiancé who is in love with you…who is smart. Who calls you ‘bookie’. Is that the worst of your problems?” Wait, does Brendon have another fiancé. Hey CBS, tone down the acoustic guitars, and get rid of the anthemic crescendo when they make up. My God, this is the fucking worst segment in Big Brother history!

Back in love, Brendon decides to go to Shelly for a vote. Yeah, she’s an easy mark, saying its “awesome” to work with her beloved vets. Jeff says that he now has to go talk to Adam because he was a person Dick brought into the group. Jeff’s great idea is to have Adam name their alliance. Really? He comes up with nothing except “Adam’s Angels”. Ugh.

Now we’re back outside, and Cassi tells Shelly and Kalia that they have nothing to gain by booting Keith. Kalia doesn’t want to “rock the vote”, though, and Shelly is just confused because she’s playing both sides. She wants to know what she has to gain by keeping him, completely ignoring the numbers game. Cassi then moves on to Adam, who says he hasn’t promised his vote to anybody. In the diary room, Adam claims that this vote says whether you’re with the noobs or veterans. Um, Adam, you’re a noob. Think about it.

With another set of commercials down the drain, it’s time for Julie to ask dumb questions to the house. Oh wait, this could actually be good, as Julie has a message from Evel Dick. He says he’s alright, as is his girlfriend and family. He loves the game, and would have never left the house if there wasn’t an emergency. He apologizes to Daniele, saying they “get along the best when we’re on Big Brother playing together”. She doesn’t seem to be too interested, though. He then tells the rest of the house that he will be watching, and wants good gameplay, strategy, and fights. He ends with saying he misses most of them.

Julie then goes to Daniele and asks if she has something to say to him, and she has really little to say except that it is tougher since it is more than just gameplay. Julie presses for her to say “I love you”, but that’s too “awkward” for Daniele. Hmmm.

We then get to see clips of the have/have not competition, including Keith dry-humping the other boys. Yes, that’s actually pretty funny. Dominic is asked if it was worth it to have Keith on top of him. His answer is yes. Adam is then asked what it’s like to play with the vets, and once again his answer is not worth repeating.

Keith then gets to plead his case, and he starts by saying that Porsche “rocks”. Wait, what? He then adds the three things that are needed to make it through the house – have fun, never take things personally, and remember that it’s only a game. Porsche says thanks to everybody, and not much else.

It’s now time for the voting. Dominic is first, and votes to evict Porsche. Brendon votes to evict Keith, as does Jordan. Cassi, however, votes to evict Porsche. It’s tied as we go to commercials.

Lawon is the first to vote when we return, and his vote is against Porsche. It’s Jeff’s turn, and yes, he votes to evict Keith, as does Daniele (after saying she does love her father). Adam then comes in, and his vote is against Porsche. Kalia’s vote is against Keith, as does Shelly. Yes, this went as expected.

Julie announces that Keith has been evicted, and he’s all smiles as he hugs everybody. After watching the house mill around for a few seconds, Julie then begins by asking how shocked he was at being evicted. “Very shocked”, he replies. He does say that he would have done a few things different, and Julie adds that he wasn’t very smart in throwing the POV while on the block. She then asks what went wrong with his choice of Porsche as a partner. He does make sense here, though, saying that she broke their plan on all the noobs sticking together. Keith also says that the game is harder than he expected, and continues on with saying that falling for Porsche, who is hot, would have messed up his game even worse.

It’s time for the goodbye messages, and Cassi says he acted like he was on the “Dating Game”. Lawon says he acted like a “fool…BOOM!” Ugh, Rachel claims he underestimated “the power of Hurricane Brenchel. We flipped the script on you, and used all of your noobies against you!” Porsche ends the segment by whining about playing her, and points to her “you can look but you can’t touch” shirt. She really is a mini-Rachel.

With Keith gone, we can move on to the HOH competition. Those of us who watched the feeds the last couple of days have seen them practicing their golf game, and that’s exactly what they’re playing tonight. They have to hit their ball around a sand trap, with the winner the closest to a “hole in one”.

Rachel was allowed to choose the play order, and Dom’s the first shot. He hits a six, and Adam’s lands in the eight. Cassi’s shot goes too far, and ends up in the water…as does Shelly. Lawon goes nuts with force on his short, and also ends up in the water. Kalia ties Dominic by hitting a six, but Jordan takes the lead by hitting a three. Jeff doesn’t even try, and goes right into the water (reminiscent of throwing a comp for Jordan during his season?). Brendon also fucks up on purpose, making Jordan the HOH! Great job, noobs.

With a couple of minutes left in the show, Julie attempts to coax a Jordan-ism out of her. She delivers, thanking Jeff and Brendon for “letting me win…it’s a repeat from our season”. Porsche is asked how she feels about having the golden key, and her response is that it feels great. Julie then asks a supposed question from the viewers, and it’s to Shelly about missing her kid. I guess she has a stuffed puppy that reminds her of the family. “They’re the love of my life.” Adam is then asked who his favorite 90210 cast member is, and he does a metal roar as he screams “Donna Martin graduates!” Um, sure.

And the show is over. What did you think? Are you excited for Jordan’s HOH win? Are you going to be sick of the entire vet team? I know I am. Leave some comments on this week’s show.

Big Brother: Season 13, Episode 3 Recap

Before we commence with the recap of tonight’s show, apologies are in order for the lack of summary for the previous episode. I was all ready for the broadcast – my slingbox was running smoothly, my mixed drink was refreshed right before show time. I even had a great opening paragraph already written.

As expected, the show started with a recap of Thursday’s premiere…and boom, here comes the local affiliate jumping in with a weather warning. Ok, no big deal. I’m thinking I’d miss next to nothing. I was wrong. After a fourteen-minute filibuster, I was able to witness CBS’ edit of Brendon/Rachel banter…and boom, another break-in. Out of the first 23 minutes of the show, I saw three.

Sure, I could have switched to an online feed, or watched it later on CBS.com. Nah, I was already not in the mood, and those cut-ins just threw my rage to a new level. Before you obsessed Weather Channel viewers begin writing hate mail, you must realize a couple of things about the situation. First off, this THUNDERSTORM activity was in a remote part of our state that covered less than a percent or two of the viewing area’s population. Plus, our CBS affiliate also owns a CW station AND a channel devoted to WEATHER!!! Switch this garbage over to one of those channels and just run a crawl underneath.

Ok, enough whining. Tonight’s the night we learn why Evel Dick left the show (or at least CBS’ version of events), along with the POV competition and POV meeting. Ok, all we really have is Dick’s departure, as I expect lots of Brendon/Rachel and Jeff/Jordan filler. (BTW, there are NO storm warnings tonight!)

Oh yes, we have to begin with reactions to the nominations of Keith and Porsche. Although Rachel tells Porsche that she’s available to talk, Porsche is confused as to who she’s in a alliance with. Is it Dick or the whole veteran team? Ok, let’s face it – I could have ended the sentence at confused. Keith says “it’s no sweat to me…Porsche, you’re going home”. Rachel denies this, saying that she wants Porsche to have that…dum dum dum…golden key so she’ll vote whatever the vets want. Jeff adds that the nominations were Dick’s idea, and he really doesn’t give a shit. Dick verifies that they were his choices.

Porsche heads up to the HOH room after nominations, but Keith spots her and goes off on her in the diary room. Brendon confirms that she’s not the target. “Trust me.” Um, sorry Brendon. Who could be that stupid? Oh yeah, Porsche could. Brendon claims that she’s the only noob that the vets can trust. Porsche doesn’t help herself by wondering if they’re going to set it up so that Keith wins POV (um, she obviously doesn’t know the rules). Brendon condescendingly describes how it’s her best move to throw the POV.

After Porsche leaves, Daniele asks what just happened. Once again, Brendon has to explain the deal and how it’s the best thing for her. Daniele adds in the diary room that her dad probably made a deal with the worst person in the house. You think?

We move on to Keith sleeping, and Dom interrupts so they can do the Regulator dance. Ugh. Keith says he’s going to throw the veto “only because I want to get Porsche out of here”. Hmmm. Dom says if he throws it, he’ll definitely stay.

Now Keith is repeating everything to Kalia and Cassi. He tells them they can’t fall for it if they come to them after the veto and try to tell them how to vote. Kalia advises Keith to talk to the vets, but he thinks that’s crazy talk. He adds that if he doesn’t throw the veto, they’re probably going to be backdoored. At some point, Lawon has entered the room, and he also agrees.

Dick and Keith are now sitting outside, and Dick is called into the diary room. He’s apparently in there for hours, as we see the rest of the house sunbathing, eating, and washing up for the night. Finally, Porsche asks Jeff where he’s at. Suddenly, the house is getting worried, and Jeff searches the house for him. “Clearly, something is up.” That Jeff is a smart one.

Daniele is pacing the house when Rachel is then called into the diary room. Now the house knows there is a problem. Even Jordan has figured it out. “Where is Dick?”

After a commercial break, Jeff asks if they can start “conspiracy theories”. Rachel returns and calls everybody into the living room. She reads a statement from Big Brother that states that “due to an urgent personal matter, Dick had to leave the Big Brother game”. It goes on to state that Daniele then receives the first golden key, but she couldn’t give a shit.

Daniele is now in the diary room crying, actually worried about him. Somehow, though, Adam seems to be more upset. A tearful Daniele heads up to the diary room with Brendon and Rachel. Inside, she says that her dad “lives and breathes Big Brother. This is his life…he’s not just going to leave for nothing”. Somehow, Daniele thinks that she’s screwed, even though she has a four week pass. In fact, all of the vets are now screwed.

Jordan enters the room and reports that Keith was smiling about the situation. Tough guy Brendon threatens to go down after him. Um, yeah. Rachel actually talks him down, and as Jeff enters he also tells him to mellow out. Somehow, they’re all screwed by Dick’s departure, but Jeff thinks it’s all crazy talk. The conversation just keeps going around and around. Jeff says they just need to “knuckle up” and win every competition. Gotta hand it to him. He’s the only voice of reason in the room.

Meanwhile, Keith is celebrating downstairs, and bragging that he’s going to make his move on “Danny”. Shelly is pissed that he’s so excited about something that could be a horrible deal for another person. Keith, though, is getting too excited. He’s already pissed at Porsche (obvi), but now his new enemy is Kalia for telling him that he needs to talk to the vets.”I’m going to be the hero. I’m going to save the day.” Really?

All of the noobs are gathered into the have-not room, and I really can’t understand a word he’s saying except that he thinks he’s “exposing” Kalia and Porsche. Kalia is pissed. Lawon doesn’t get it either, and even Dominic is having second thoughts about Keith. He points out that they now have the numbers, and that he should just relax. He really is a dumbshit.

So it’s now time to pick the POV players, but first Daniele is handed her golden key…and, of course, she whines about it. However, she’s been having some second thoughts, and is going to use these three weeks to “build personal relationships with all these people”. Good move, Junior Dick!

Jeff and Jordan are the “wild card” choices for POV, and Brendon couldn’t be happier. Rachel also chooses Adam to be the host of the competition. The vets all head upstairs and decide it’s probably a good idea to remind Porsche that she needs to throw the competition. Porsche says that she wants nobody out of the house more than Keith, and somehow Brendon manages to pump himself up one more time with some comment about how he’d even be great at rocket science. Really?

It’s time for the competition, and Adam is dressed as a cop, with the rest of the competitors in superhero leotards. I’m going to refrain from Jordan’s dumb comment…and also Keith’s. One player must grab puzzle pieces and hand it the other who is hanging in the air, who then places the piece on a “skyscraper”…but before it begins we again have to hear how Porsche must throw it. Oh yeah, and that Keith is doing the same thing. WE GET IT, CBS!

Ugh, the play by play of Brendon is even worse than Jordan’s inane commentary (and game play). The same with Keith and Porsche believing they’re pulling a scam on the other. Somehow, though, Jeff and Jordan are doing even worse than Keith and Porsche.  Thankfully, Brendon and Rachel finally put us out of this misery…and as usual, they act like they’ve won the greatest competition ever. “Eh heh heh heh he”. Ugh.

With the competition over, Brendon and Rachel head back up to the HOH to celebrate. Jeff joins them, and Rachel asks if they should change the nominations. Brendon, of course, wants to hold court over the whole house…”reminding them that we...have complete control”. Yes, he thinks that not only should everybody come up and kiss the ring that also from that moment on the entire house should come to them with their nominations. Yeah, he didn’t learn anything from the previous season.

They begin by having Adam and Dominic up into the HOH. Brendon informs them that if Rachel doesn’t change the nominations, that means that next week they can’t go up or also be up for POV. I can almost see the incredulous smile grow on Adam’s fat mug. Adam still agrees, but Dominic is pissed. “I wasn’t intimidated before they won, and I’m not intimidated after they won.” Lawon and Kalia are then brough in and given the same speech, and they also just nod their head in agreement (and laughing on the inside).

The speech is also repeated to Cassi and Shelly, and Cassi dares to speak up. She says she knows that they have a bond with Jeff and Jordan, and would always choose them over her. Shelly just stares off into space, adding only that there’s “no word breaking”.

Rachel then informs Keith that she’s thinking of using the veto, and asks what he would give her if that indeed happened. Keith claims that he’ll NEVER nominate her if she saves him. Really? Rachel backtracks and says the deal is only for the next two weeks. In the diary room, though, he says he has no worries because he’s “got the numbers”. Ok, Rachel, stop when you’re ahead. She doesn’t, though, and threatens to bury him if he goes back on his word.

It’s finally that anticlimactic time. Rachel and Brendon continue to spout nonsense about possibly changing their nominations, and the rest of the house responds accordingly. Finally, the rest of the house is brought in for the ceremony, and, as expected, it’s not used.

That’s it for tonight. What did you think of the episode? Will Keith survive? Will Brendon’s ego make his head explode? Will Porsche grow an IQ or two? Let us know what you think!

The Continuing Saga of Bookie and Rachel

Those of us who watched Big Brother 12 are very familiar with the first chapter of the relationship between Brendon and Rachel. We watched their love blossom, grow, wilt, grow, wilt, grow - well you get the picture. You either loved them or hated them - most hated them - but nobody can deny they brought drama to the house.

They even brought us drama in the off-season by way of Penisgate. If you don't know what was about, basically Brendon sent pics of his penis to a Twitter lady (who turned out to be a man) and then the lady told Rachel about it and all hell broke loose resulting in a tearful apology posted by Brendon posted on YouTube. A link to the story can be found here and a link to the very NSFW penis pics can be found here.

Well now this dynamic duo (proud of me Allison Grodner?) are back in the Big Brother house this season and the drama between them just continues. They have been fighting on and off this season already and usually because he gets upset at Rachel when she talks game with anybody else in the house when he's not around to supervise. And when that happens he begins to do his same old routine of being condescending to her and making her grovel for his forgiveness.

Last night, the hamsters got a little alcohol and Rachel and Porsche decided to share a bottle of white wine. Mind you, they asked the others if they wanted the white wine and they all said no so they split it. Rachel and Porsche got a little tipsy (Porsche even hid some of the beers) and Rachel called out to Brendon across the backyard by her pet name for him - Bookie. (Yes, it rhymes with dooky.)

Brendon became really upset at Rachel for that and took her to task in the HOH room saying that he didn't want her to call him that in front of the others because he didn't want them to make fun of their relationship. He was also upset accusing her of being drunk. Rachel tried to tell him that she was sorry for calling him Bookie in front of everybody else but that she was used to calling him that. And besides, she wasn't drunk. He went on and on about how he didn't like seeing her drunk and hanging around with Porsche and how he won't put up with this behavior when she's his wife.

Mind you, Rachel was NOT drunk. He was primarily upset about her calling him Bookie and watching her hang out and have fun with Porsche. I guess the poor wittle baby felt like he wasn't getting enough attention or something.

Jump to this morning, and they have another argument about what happened last night (Flashback time 10:44 AM July 12 on any of the feeds). Rachel stood her ground a little better this morning and gave him back some of his own medicine.

They argued about how much she had to drink. She called him impatient and frustrating. He said he doesn't like how she ignores him when she drinks. She said she's used to calling him Bookie at him and in front of his friends. She gets pissed off and upset because she feels like now she can't talk to anyone in the house, can't call him an endearing name, and now she can't drink.

He then tells her he'll throw the HOH competition so they could go on the block and he could go home. She gets pissed off and starts crying. He says he's only asked her not to talk game with anybody else on her own. She tells him that Porsche just wants to be her friend and doesn't want to be her. He keeps on saying how bothered he is. She said she came out here so that he could apologize to her and so that he could tell her he loves her.

He asked if she's serious. She said not to fight her. He said to do what he says. She said she wants to have fun in the house. He said he's hanging out with the wrong person (Porsche) in the house. She said it's ridiculous they're fighting about alcohol. He said they're not fighting about alcohol and asked why she does stuff he's asked her not to do. She swung it back at him and asked him why he does stuff she's asked him not to do (referring to Penisgate I'm sure) and he said he doesn't know what she's talking about and if she doesn't stop right now she's going to make a huge mistake. She told him that sometimes he forgets that he blames her for "stuff" and tells him she doesn't need a Dad. He told her he doesn't need a kid.

She said they won't get married if he doesn't stop acting like this. He said he's reaching the end of his rope and that if she wants people to take her seriously she should behave in a more serious manner and says he's done with this conversation. He says if he threatens her again then there will be no more conversation. It goes on and on and at one point she tells him he's not even good at the competitions anyway. And then eventually she crawls up on his lap and they begin kissing.

So yeah. What do you think about the relationship between Bookie and Rachel? And why does he keep going on about being so concerned with the way she's portrayed in the house? It didn't seem like he was so concerned about it yesterday morning when they were having sex. Are you on Team Bookie or Team Rachel? Let me hear what you think about Bookchel in the comments!

Power of Veto Results. Whose Gonna Go Home? Golden Keys.

This afternoon the first power of veto ceremony was held and shocker - it wasn't used.  It was pretty obvious that Brendon and Rachel weren't going to use it - if for no other reason than they don't want to make any more enemies and they have pretty much asked for loyalty from everyone in the house.

I would have said its almost a lock that Keith was going home however after listening to Cassie, Lawon and Dominic chat in the Padded Have Not room this afternoon I think there is a chance he may stay.  They feel that if they keep him in the house he will be the first target once the golden keys are gone.  It will be an up and down week with the HGs not being forced to 'lock in' their votes until Thursday (thats right, the feeling among most of us is that it isn't really a live vote - the HGs have to TELL production how they are going to vote the day before).

The other item of note today was that Danielle suddenly realized that all the golden key holders were guarenteed to make it to the Jury House.  There has been some question as to how that will work.  People are doing the math as so...  14 people-4 key holders leaves 10 people - 2 finalists = 8 people but there are only 7 in the Jury - so how can everyone that gets a key make the jury?  The answer is in the last week before Jury - that person needs no key because they are in.  Here is the way it works.

Week 1 - Danielle - 1st Key - 13 HGs left

Week 1 - Keith/Porsche - 2nd Key - 12 HGs left

Week 2 - ?? - 3rd Key - 11 HGs left

Week 3 - ?? - 4th Key - 10 HGs left

Week 4 - ?? Evicted - the person left gets no key but thats ok - every week after the evictee is in the jury. 9 HGs left - 2 finalists and 7 Jury.

Make sense?  If you already figured it out - sorry! 

The TV show is on tonight in about 40 minutes for me.  We'll see the Have Not competition that involves something with Milking Cows on the Moon - or at least cows and the moon are involved.

There will also be the first nomination ceremony shown.  And maybe there will be hints to Dicks impending departure.  Speaking of Dick he should be releasing a video statement sometime today, we'll let you know when its up.

The Big Brother HGs That Might Get In - Who Has Been "Online?"

There has been tons of speculation on which "Dynamic Duo's" will be going back into the Big Brother house for season 13.  CBS listed Six 'couples' but then yesterday Allison Grodner claims that was CBS's  selection, implying there might be other couples that could be going in, even going as far to say all they could fit on the web page was six couples.  So is there any way to figure out who ISN'T going back in?

Here are a few things to consider and my own thoughts.  In the end I really have no clue for sure who is going back but there are a few I can say aren't.

First lets take a look at the list CBS provided and talk about each.

Will/Boogie:  This one is easy because yesterday Will posted on his own fansite that he isn't going back in the house and that his days on competition reality shows is over.

Jessie/Natalie:  Much tougher and not a very 'popular' couple.  They were seen by most as Jessie the BB10 guy worshipped by the season 11 HGs and Natalie the coatail rider who brought nothing to the game once Jessie was gone.  I follow both on Twitter and Natalie hasn't put anything up since October so thats no help.  Jessie hasn't tweeted since June 17th so again not a lot of help.  We know Jessie would probably love to go back in the house but we also know there are a ton of Big Brother fans that would revolt if he did.  I'm not so sure about Natalie as she got married after leaving the house and has never seen to be one to love the spotlight.

Enzo/Hayden: These two are tweeting like crazy - if they are sequestered and entering the house today or tomorrow then they are either being allowed to use twitter - or they have someone doing it for them (a possibility).  I imagine they both might be willing to go back in the house - but Enzo does have a child so that might make his decision a bit tougher.

Brendon/Rachel:  I almost assume these two will be back.  Rachel is ALL about the entertainment industry (although I have yet to see her in a Vegas Ad) and Brendon doesn't really have a job.  The only thing about them is if Brendon is to be believed, they just moved to North Carolina where Brendon claims he will be doing research.  Brendon's last tweet was June 30th and Rachel's June 29th so that keeps them as strong possibilities.  I would put them down as in the house.

Dick/Danielle: This is the one I would guess will be in if it weren't for the fact that Danielle is still tweeting as of today.  The most recent tweet said, "Just got done tickle fighting w Allison Grodner. I'm getting in one way or another!"  So it could be her or someone tweeting for her.  She did 3 shows on Real with Ragan but wasn't scheduled to do any once the season began which is a BIG indicator to me (Ragan continues on solo for the season).  Dick's last comments were on June 30th asking what people thought of the cast and the last one being, "Let the shit talking begin..." (dot dot dot implies a LOT to me).  If I had to bet I would say they are in.

Jeff/Jordan: America would LOVE to see this 'couple' back in the house.  And if Brendon/Rachel and Dick/Danielle get in you need a little sappyness to offset the anger and meaness the other two couples bring.  Jeff hasn't had a 'real' job since BB and has done two stints of an online around the world show for CBS - they both visited the show last season - so why wouldn't they come back?  Jeff's last 'tweet' was June 29th and Jordan's was back in April so no online activity from either to indicate they are out and about.  Thats my 3rd couple in the house if I had to bet.

So you think Allison was honest when she said CBS could only fit six couples?  Maybe - but the three that I think are going in are on that page.  Allison tossed out a few other names but many, Marcelleas and Amy for example, are still active online today (even joking about it).  I think maybe Allison would have preferrd if they listed 10 couples but CBS said only room for six.

I think we'll see the three couples I mentioned and that works out to a total of 14 houseguests (8 + 6) and thats how many spaces are on this season's memory wall.  My guess is they eight new ones will enter the house first (Saturday or Sunday), possibly even spend the first night alone, and then be joined by the others the next day in a 'shocking twist.'

Interviews With Julie

I don't know about you but I hadn't had a chance to check out Julie's interviews with Matt and Brendon until this morning. You should watch them if you haven't already!

How do you think the interviews went?

Goodbye Brenchel

The plan of the house all week has been to make Brendon think he's being evicted tonight instead of Rachel. However, the person they'll be evicting is Rachel. They want to blindside Brendon so that he's out of sorts for the HOH competition.

At the beginning of the week, I doubted that they would keep the plan alive and it would be tossed aside along with every other idea that seems to pop up so early. The plan is still full steam ahead though. Rachel will probably have a nervous breakdown tonight - either when Julie announces her eviction or during her interview with Julie. There's no telling what Brendon might do.

I get that the other hamsters don't like Brenchel. Hell, I don't like Brenchel. I can't help but wonder why none of these ding dongs in the house aren't more interested in their two jury votes though. You stick it out in the house with Brendon and Rachel all that time and then, when it's the first week of jury, you decide to just lose it with them and send them out of the house in such a dramatic fashion?

There's no doubt that Brendon and Rachel have had a bad week. Some of it they definitely brought on themselves. But some of it was also brought on by the others in the house. I'm just thankful they didn't hear all of the vile and nasty things that were said about them behind their backs.

Do you think this surprise switch eviction is a good idea? If so, why? Is it because it just makes good TV? Do you think that this helps anybody's game or vote in the jury house? What do you think Brendon's and Rachel's reaction will be on the show tonight?

Rachel's digging her own grave already

Earlier today, Matt, Rachel and Ragan were together in the cabana room.  When Matt and Rachel started to talk game, Ragan was about to leave the room, to "give them their time to talk".  Rachel said something to the effect of "no, you can stay, cause you two are a partnership". Ragan got pissed and they both told Rachel they had no idea what she was talking about.  Ragan really didn't appreciate it.

Immediately after the spat, Brendon confronted Ragan and said he heard "two people ganging up" on "his girlfriend".  Ragan explained that Brendon wasn't privy to the conversation, so anything he has to say about it means nothing.  Ragan began explaining what really happened:

Rachel was trying to out an alliance in the worst way--just casually saying "oh, you two are together, so it's ok if you stay"--as if Matt and Ragan would have just gone along with it.  Naturally Ragan defended himself.  When people were curious as to what the hell was going on, and Ragan was explaining what happened, Rachel immediately came around and told him "no one needs to know what happened."  In what world, Rachel?  Hello, it's Big Brother.  It's a bunch of people in a house, with nothing else to do. ANYTHING that goes on is everyone else's business.  

Rachel apologized soon thereafter, but her craziness already rubbed everyone the wrong way.  As if she needed the help. 

Before the in-house lockdown that everyone is under now, Rachel was laying in the have-not room, by herself.  Matt decided to break the ice, and check on her, which opened the door for others to come join her.  Brendon and Rachel are in the have-not room now, talking about dinner, she's claiming she doesn't want to eat.  

Poor Rachel.  Boo-effin'-hoo.  

There is still no "Nominations Today" screen, however, the house knows there's something going on. They've been talking about Pandora's Box--clueless as to what is possibly in store for them.

POV Players Have Been Chosen

The POV players have been drawn! Competing against Rachel, Kristen, and Hayden will be Britney, Enzo, and Ragan. Brendon was chosen by Rachel to host the little shindig.

Ragan is convinced that this POV will involve the much beloved unitard along with various prizes and punishments. It is the right time to have this competition so who knows. After the competition today, we just might see one of the hamsters dressed all in red! How funny would it be if Enzo was the one stuck in the unitard!

Kathy's really disappointed she didn't get picked to play in the competition as she was planning on winning it and taking Kristen off the block. No - seriously! The thought of her winning a competition is hilarious! Perhaps if it was an endurance competition for curling eyelashes and applying mascara she would have a chance. Oh and if it involved who could lay down the longest! Ha!

Kristen and Hayden are really going to have to fight for their lives in the POV competition today as nobody chosen to play have any plans on using the POV to save them. Again, that's as of today. Who knows what could happen in the end.

Anybody out there hoping that Kristen or Hayden wins the POV today? Do you think this might be the unitard POV competition? Let your fingers do the talking in the comments!

Pussy Patrol

The nominations are in this week and surprise! Rachel has bigger balls than Matt (and Brendon)!

Unlike Matt, Rachel stuck to her guns and nominated actual people in the house and not shadows. It doesn't matter if her nominations were emotional ones, she did what she wanted and basically told the others to screw off.

Did she nominate Kathy? No. Did she nominate Britney? No. Did she nominate Ragan? Hell no. Rachel nominated Kristen and Hayden.

We've seen this coming from a mile away since the show last night but I was worried about whether she would really stick to it or not.  Hayden tried to sweet talk her earlier and Kristen had her ear for over an hour before the feeds went to trivia for tonight's nominations.

All of it was awkward though. Rachel was able to drag some info out of Hayden earlier regarding Matt telling them that she'd go after a couple that dropped early in the previous HOH competition. Just wait until Ragan finds that out and it gets to The Brigade. Matt won't be happy about it but who cares. We'll get to watch Ragan fighting desperately for everybody to just hug and love each other. Barf!

Speaking of barf, could Brendon's sad display of self-castration be any worse than it was after the feeds came back on tonight? Apparently, Rachel made quite the speech in the HOH nomination ceremony and Brendon wasn't too happy about that. It is obvious to me that he has no testosterone and is worried about Rachel not being able to carry him through the game. I was actually proud of Rachel for just listening to him for so long without saying something back. She was probably thinking about a bag or something she could make from that sensitive testicle skin after he brings her the needle and thread.

So it's Hayden and Kristen on the block. Who do you want to win POV? Who do you want to go home? Do you think Brendon needs a patch or something for his hormone imbalance? Are you appreciating Rachel's actions like I am now? My questioning mind needs to know what you think!
