Power of Veto Results.  

Hey there all - just a real quick note on a Saturday afternoon.  The Power of Veto was held early this morning with Kalia, Jeff, Rachel, Jordan, Shelly and Adam competting.

The competition involved a ball or balls - sounded like they were building someting - perhaps stacking something - because if you 'dropped your ball' you had to start over.  Jeff won the competition so he now has the Power of Veto and will use it on Monday to save himself.

Kalia will most likely put up Adam in Jeff's place.  She has said she will never nominate Jordan because of a promise they made to each other the first week.

Kalia really wants Rachel to go.  Rachel, Jeff and Jordan feel that none of this matters because whomever is 'evicted' will be coming right back into the house.  Its not quite true but very close and very possible that Rachel will defeat whomever America selects.  I'm going to guess it will be Dominic - the vote will be close between him and Cassi but I think the TV only viewers will vote for Domic over Cassi.

Have Nots - Nominations - POV Players

A very quick update - LOTS has gone on - tons of drama in the house for a Friday.  Check my other site I Love Reality.com for some more details and pictures but these are the 'highlights.'

The Have Not competition was held this afternoon - blended drinks seemed to be involved - they had to guess what was in the mixed up drinks.  We know for sure that Jordan, Jeff and Shelly are Have Nots - I think Rachel is as well.  Jordan was VERY upset after the competition, since she will be a Have Not for the second week in a row.  Jeff also felt that Shelly might have thrown the competition when she said she could not hear the combination Jeff was telling her.  When Jeff confronted her on this later she got upset with him for not trusting her loyalty.

Then came nominations and Kalia put up who we expected - Rachel and Jeff.  Kalia had said she would not put up Jordan no matter what - ever - based on a promise from the first week.  I do know Daniele coached Kalia on her nomination speech.   

And finally tonight  the house guests picked the names to play in the Power of Veto competition - normally this is done early on Saturday - so there is some speculation that they might have a late night POV competition - or one early in the morning.  We don't have a complete list of Power of Veto players either - they HGs haven't been very forthcoming.  We know that Kalia, Rachel and Jeff will play.  I also heard that Rachel got to pick a player and took Jordan.  Jeff apparently drew Shelly's name from the mystery bag.

So there you have it - feel free to fill in the blanks with things you saw on the feeds today.  I just wanted to get something posted so you were up to date!

CBS Twist Revealed. One Evictee WILL Return With New Twist.

On Wednesday a couple people, including our own Scott, saw a that the America's Vote page on CBS had changed to reveal the upcoming plans for getting an evictee back into the house.

In the screencap shown below, you can see a description as follows:

America's Vote

Which houseguest do you want to come back in the game?  Vote for one of the four evicted HouseGuests below!  The winner will battle the next evicted HouseGuest for a chance to get back into the game!  Tun in to Big Brother on Thursday, August 11th at 9/8c to find out how America Voted!

Notice CBS has already assumed Brendon is going home?  We know he will be based on the house - but funny to see they know he will be as well.

So does the quote make sense to you?  Have you seen the last season of Survivor?  It was called 'redemption island' because the evicted people would face off against each other and the winner got to come back into the game.

Let me give you one example as to how it will work.  Lets say that Adam gets voted out next Thursday.  Lets also say that America votes for Cassi (of the four pictured) to have a chance.  Cassi and Adam will face off in some type of competition and the winner will be put back into the Big Brother house.

What do you think? Interesting? Dumb? How long will the person that returns last?  Would it be funny if Brendon is voted on by America and Rachel is evicted next week and the two have to face off to go back into the house?

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 Dynamic Duo that Could Have Been

Watching the feeds overnight I looked on as in the early hours of the morning Porsche, seeming to try to mend some fences, approached Cassi looking to air a couple things out.  There has been tension between these two for a while, Cassi would say there isn't tension as much as she doesn't care to associate with Porsche who she sees as very immature and in the house for the wrong reasons (Porsche has been heard to say she isn't in the house for the money as much as the potential exposure and what it might mean career wise after Big Brother).

But earlier in the evening last night Cassi has approached Porsche and given her some grief for telling Cassi's duo partner Shelly that Cassi was badmouthing Shelly.  Turns out that it seems this was a mis-understanding and it isn't what Porsche had said to Shelly and thats what led to the above meeting between Cassi and Porsche shortly after 5am this morning.  They talked for almost an hour and in the end it seems not a whole lot was accomplished.  I mean maybe now Cassi doesn't think Porsche was talking about her to Shelly but the overall feelings towards Porsche are the same and she is planning to vote for her eviction on Thursday.

The entire cast of 'newbies' seems to be flailing about - with the only strong alliance being between Lawon, Dominic and Cassi - and that one is totally clear to the Veterans so it will most likely be busted up in some way in the near future.

I really think Cassi and Porsche, the two cast 'babes' of this season could have been a good Duo had they been paired together.  Then again maybe I am just wishful - thinking that two attractive women could work together and trust each other in the Big Brother house.  I may also be completley out of my gord and giving Porsche way too much credit but I was sort of surprised that she extended the olive branch to Cassi and tried to talk to her and work things out.  Unfortunatly for her Cassi wants nothing to do with her as she told Lawon after the conversation.  The two of them will be quite surprised when Keith is voted out and Porsche is in the house for at least two more weeks.

By the way, Lawon can't stop going on and on to anyone that will listen (and knows the 'plan' to keep Keith) how he is going to set Keith straight and tell him he voted for him to stay ONLY because they shook hands and that even thought Keith screwed him over (by saying to Rachel and Brendon that he was playing both sides) he keeps his word.  Lawon - we get it!  Problem is chances are Keith won't be around to hear you.

Listen To Evel Dick Explain Why He Left Big Brother 13

Around 12am Eastern Monday Evel Dick posted a 9+ minute long video on his site, rtvzone trying to clear up some of the rumors as to his departure from the show last Thursday.

I have taken the 'meat' of that audio - the two minute portion with the crucial details and you can listen to it below.  For the full audio and video please check out rtvzone.  In it Dick quashes all the rumors and then discusses what his near term plans are which includes commenting on the show via his site.

CLICK TO LISTEN TO EVEL DICK

A couple things to note, Dick did NOT say the reason was medical.  Now it might have been but he didn't say it so don't believe what you might read elsewhere.  Also the one item not in this audio clip I found interesting was Dick maintains that he and Danielle haven't spoken in the last couple years and he has left messages with her that she hasn't returned.

I don't really know if there is much to discuss, although I don't know why we had to wait for the video statement, he laid it out as clearly as he seems to plan to.

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 Feeds are Live But Where is Evel Dick?

Hey all - a quickie since the feeds kicked in at 10pm BB time last night.

Feeds are up and running strong - HGs on an inside lockdown while they wait for what they expect to be a POV competition.

Porsche and Keith seem to be the nominees - Cassie has told Keith he is safe but who knows if that is true or not - plus it is VERY early and things might change (read on).

The Have Not room is in use - not sure 100% who all is in there but I think Lawon and Dominic are at least two of the Have Nots.

Evel Dick is missing as of this post.  He hasn't been seen on the feeds yet, having apparently been called to the Diary Room in the late late afternoon (someone in the house said 5:30pm) and he hasn't been seen since.

Danielle, his daughter, was just called in the DR as well - we assume it is so she can be told why Dick was called in.  We can only guess that there was some type of emergency outside the house that would make it necessary for Dick to leave the game but until the feeds come back and we piece things together we won't know for sure.

While it is possible Dick might still be playing the game, it seems very unlikely.

This may mean a big change in the way the game is played - I can't see them bringing anyone else it and Dick was one of my favorites to go far.

One of us will update this as soon as we know anything.  Here are a couple Screen Caps of the HGs from tonight.

New Cast Picture. Lawon, seriously?

Just a quickie - not much 'new' to report today yet.  CBS release a picture of the eight new Hgs outside the house.  All I could do was look at Lawon and think...  WHY?   He may end up being my favorite for all I know but the outfit he wore into the house is not helping matters...  Remember the old Geek or Nerd posters (I am probably dating myself here but some will get it.  Lawon could fit right on it I tell ya!

Danielle didn't make it on Ragan's "Rumor Control" show today on Real - shocked? Not me.  Real said she was having Skype issues.  I'd say that's because they don't have Skype inside the Big Brother House!

As I said this was going to be a quickie - I will leave you with a picture of the full cast - well the eight anyways - and one of us will be sure to let you know if there are any amazing developments tonight (there won't be ;) ).

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.'

If you want to 'follow' any of the former HGs (and even a couple of the new ones) I have a list I maintain on my twitter account.  Just go to http://twitter.com/#!/BBGossip/big-brother-hgs/members and you can add any you like.  Some of them have to approve you to follow them.  I don't actually follow them all myself but I can check their tweets by going to that page to get to them.

Comment away and PLEASE tell me if you think I am wrong and why!!
