Enough!

I've had to shut off social media for the time being, as the circular discussions are driving me nuts. Just to be clear, I'm as shocked and offended by the various racial and sexual slurs uttered by over half the house as everybody else. 

But I can no longer handle the chatter.

Every one of those unfortunate comments is being rehashed and rehashed. We all know what was said! We all agree that it's horrible!

There's no coverup, though. The incidents (except for maybe one case of loose lips) all happened after Saturday's veto meeting. Sunday's show was already in the can at that point, and it also didn't fit Tuesday's timeline. Tonight is the night that it would be shown, during that opening segment that is usually present to make you believe the eviction is a tossup.

I predict some of it will be shown, and it is due to those that heard them on Sunday and Monday. It was those people that led to news outlets such as NPR, HuffPo, and other publications to report on the incidents. It was those people that are ultimately responsibel for Rachel Reilly's self-serving interview with TMZ earlier today.

Without it hitting the media, CBS could have easily swept the story under the rug. They're now forced to deal with it, and I'd be shocked if they didn't. If they do ignore it, then you can scream about conspiracies.

Until then, I'd like a couple of hours of other topics. Can you help a fella out?

Scott's Initial Impressions - Elissa

 Elissa Slater (Reilly), 27 

Hometown: Concord, N.C. 

Current City: Kannapolis, N.C. 

Nutritionist 

I’ve put this one off as long as possible, and I’d still rather not endure it. 

Why oh why does Grodner and her minions think we need to have a Reilly family member every season? It’s bad enough that we’ve had Rachel for two full seasons, plus other appearances AND Amazing Race. Not to mention her Skype-loving husband. It’s disgusting, and I feel dirty whenever I see any of them. 

Now I must admit that a relative is a bit of a step better than a returning player. I do want all newbies, and technically this horrific human is in that category. But but but...I still don’t have to like it.

So here we go. Five seconds in my eardrums break. She has the Reilly laugh. In fact, her laugh goes beyond that ugly caterwaul. Oh Lord, what have I done to cause me this pain and suffering?

It’s not just her laugh. Even her talking voice is more annoying than her sister...but it’s clear they’re sisters. The same sort of enunciation, and the same attempt to hide her southern drawl.

She says she isn’t going to tell the house that she’s Rachel’s sister, but anybody with any knowledge of the show is going to immediately jump on it. Plus, isn’t she in the TV wedding?

The plan is to play a better social game than Rachel, which really shouldn’t be too tough. Thankfully, she also wants to be “more demure”. Those of us disgusted by that family is so grateful.

The vast majority of this interview is based around Rachel, and what she will do differently and similar to her. She believes her yoga regime will be a huge asset to her in the endurance competitions, and I can’t argue with that. 

Somehow, I made it through the entire interview. I now need a stiff, stiff drink...and a shower. Sadly, if she does refrain from her sister’s over-the-top antics, we’re going to be stuck with a Reilly up to the very end...although she may need some help here and there from Grodner.

Preseason Press Day House Tour and Interviews on Super Pass

As of about 3am this morning the Press Day tour videos of the "new" Big Brother 14 house were posted (Scroll down for one video).  I won't lie, it was much tougher for me to get through this year than it usually is.  Most of it was more about Rachel than it was about the house, and, of course she brought "BRENNON" with her.  I don't suppose she could leave her wart at home just to do press day.  The video of the "mini game" and tour is mostly just scripted DRs of Rachel saying things like "Nobody messes with MY man" etc..  To my knowledge this is the first time former house guests have been allowed in on press day to play the game with the other people.  Rachel does get evicted, so there is THAT.  Not soon enough though in my humble opinion.

The interview with Grodner in the producers video is foretelling of this season I think.  No one has said that Rachel is definitely going to be there, but I think we can all safely say there are most likely going to be former rehashed house guests, and Grodner was definitely pushing the Rachel idea saying that last season was one of her favorites "because Rachel got to go from being hated to loved". I feel like we might be doomed, but then again I have been very wrong before, so maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.  I can only hope.

The house on the other hand is kind of cute this year.  Some photos of it were leaked earlier in the week and can be seen a few blogs back. There is also a video of Reality Nation's Spicy Pants giving a tour of parts of the house.  I have seen the theme called "Tokyo pop" and also just "Space".  Either way I kind of like it. It's not completely redone or revamped or anything spectacular. They did get a new fridge..but that's about it. The rest of it is just painted over as usual. It's cuter this year though.

Despite my feelings of horror that we might be gearing up for another season of Rachel and God forbid Brendon, I am actually starting to get excited to see the new cast! I kind of like this mentors theme rumor because I think it might mean that the rehashed former House Guests don't necessarily LIVE in the BB house and get to play.  Maybe the actual House Guests will all be all new faces and OH wouldn't that be as refreshing as a cool misty breeze in my face during this 100 degree weather we are having down here.

If you would like to watch the videos and experience the horror (or joy if you are a fan..I know there are some Rachel rooters out there) yourself you can check them out here: http://superpass.real.com/big-brother-14/preseason/house-tour .  If you don't have your live feeds  you better get on it before the Early Bird Special is off and the price goes up!!

Are you guys excited?!

Rachel Wins Her Honeymoon Trip

In case you haven't heard, Rachel won Big Brother 13 by a vote of 4-3 last night. And today she won her honeymoon. Check out this priceless video below!

By the way, good job on you Rachel for doing this because many would not have.

Second Part of HoH Competition Complete - Deal Made.

As reported in the last post, the second part of the final HoH competition was held last night and won by Porsche.  From the few details we have been able to glean from the talk afterwards, sounds like they were underwarer for a lot of it.  It is possible that the competition was similar to the one shown below from Season 8.

After the competition Porsche and Rachel said they would take each other to the finals no matter who wins Wednesday's Part 3.  Rachel then actually told Adam about the deal at about 9:39pm. 

There is no TV show tonight as CBS will be running 9/11 programming.

Adam's Nominations and POV Winner Revealed

Feeds came back right after 9pm and we pretty quickly figured out what was up.

Adam nominated Porsche and Jordan - which didn't really matter as you will see.

Some time today they did the Power of Veto competition - all we know about it is that it WASN'T an endurance competition.  We also know Porsche won it.

That means Porsche will use it on Thursday's live show and Rachel will go up in her place.

As of this writing Porsche has implied to Adam that she will be voting out Jordan.  Flash Back to 9:52pm on Wednesday night if you want to hear it.

And there you have it,  tomorrow night the final three will begin the last HoH competition with part one of three - the endurance portion.  I'd say if it is indeed Rachel joining Porsche and Adam it should be a pretty good one.  I think Porsche, if she were wise, would want to go up against Adam and not Rachel in the final two.  Then again if she were REALLY wise she would vote out Rachel tomorrow night but I don't think that will be the case.

And Then There Were Four - Taped Eviction Show Results

Greetings one and all - unless you ONLY come to Big Brother Gossip for your Big Brother news you most likely already know that the word on the street is Kalia was indeed voted out on tonight's taped eviction show and Adam won the HoH competition beating out Jordan by one question.  The news was broadcast to the twitter universe as I expect it would be and I trust the source I am quoting (MissCleoBB13).

Here are a few other tidbits from that source and one other.......

  • Kalia apparently told Adam to start playing like an all star and not a fan in her eviction speech <POW!>
  • Adam was 6 for 6 in the questions - Jordan 5 for 6.  The questions were indeed based on the Fortune Tellers quotes.
  • Julie wore a "leopard one piece dress" on the show.
  • Shelly entering the Jury House was shown and things were very uncomfortable.
  • Rachel left a nasty goodbye message to Kalia and her jaw dropped. She called her a cow. Kalia was not happy.

Now that we know Adam has won, the question is, what will he do?

His nominations really mean nothing as the real holder of power this "week" (ok its only 2 days) is the Power of Veto winner who will both get to decide who is nominated and cast the one vote to evict (Unless Adam also wins the POV).

In all likelyhood I THINK Porsche needs to win the POV to stay - but some feel if he wins it, Adam will want Rachel evicted.  Adam has been closer to Porsche than Rachel but I don't think he wants the blood on his hands and so may either throw the POV competition or if he wins it he might evict Porsche by letting Jordan or Rachel cast the vote to evict.

The feeds have been off since 2pm and at the very least will stay off until after the show airs on Wednesday - when they return we may find out who the POV winner is - unless it hasn't been played yet.

Power of Veto Competition - OTEV Returns.

Saturday we had the Power of Veto competition, Kalia and Porsche were nominated for eviction by Rachel and both would of course want to win it to ensure them safety.

While we haven't seen the POV competition and won't until Wednesday's show, we know what it was and we know who won.

The competition was the same one that has been done for several seasons involving the 'god' or 'idol' OTEV (veto backwards). Below is the OTEV competition from last season.  Notice it is a very physical competition

This time the house guests have described finding things in pies - or perhaps in one big pie.

Adam ended up winning the POV and it sounds like Porsche was second. 

As of now Adam has no plans to use the POV which if he did would force Rachel to put up Jordan in the place of whomever he saved.

Kalia has been campaigning VERY hard to stay already but I don't think it will work.  Adam probably can't win against Jordan or Rachel but he seems to have convinced himself that that is the best route for him to take.

One of us will make another post soon about the upcoming week - with only 4 shows left (including tonight's), Big Brother has to pick up the pace - we will see an eviction on both Wednesday and Thursday's shows.

Pandoras Box Opened - Nominations Made

Greetings Big Brother Fans!  Here is a quickie Friday update to let you know what's gone on today.

Yes, there was a Pandora's Box.  The HGs were told to dress up for some reason and then the feeds cut to trivia.  When they came back on we found out the following...  If Rachel is telling the truth, she was presented a Pandora's Box and could see Tori Spelling in a video.  She opened it (of course) and ended up being locked with Jesse from Big Brother 10 & 11 for some period of time while Tori Spelling hung out with the other HGs and they had a 'shopping spree' where they had 3 minutes to grab as many items of clothing as they could from some type of set up in the backyard.  As far as I know Rachel didn't get any money but since she is the only one that knows for certain what went on we won't know until it is shown on TV (for example I don't think anyone but Kalia and Porsche knows Kalia got $5k with Porsche's Pandora's Box).

The other thing to happen today was nominations.  In a SHOCKING move Rachel decided to nominate......... Porsche and Kalia.  Ok it wasn't shocking at all.  Rachel's target appears to be Kalia.  Of course if either Porsche or Kalia win the POV tomorrow, Adam will have to go up in their place.  If Adam wins it he probably will not use it because it would mean Rachel would have to put up Jordana and I just can't see him doing that.

What do ya think? Excited? Bored? Ready for the evictions already?

Veto Results AND Episode #9 of The Big Brother Gossip Show

Shelly and Adam will now be put up on Monday, and I predict that we'll see the last of the leather-skinned smoker next Thursday.
