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.”

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.

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 ;) ).
