The real action in Big Brother 13 yesterday took place after the HoH endurance competition so let’s jump straight to the good stuff. The house has a new Head of Household and nominations are coming up quickly with a Friday night reveal.
With the lines drawn in the sand we all have a pretty good idea of who is going up on the block, but where we go from there is still waiting to be found.
Big Brother 13 Live Feed Highlights – July 28, 2011:
12:06 PM BBT – Okay, one pre-eviction highlight. Brendon managed to go full-frontal nude yesterday with a shower scene during the HoH lockdown. Gotta watch out for those shower cams!
8:28 PM BBT – HGs start heading back in. Daniele is the HoH winner.
8:30 PM BBT – Kalia and Daniele are dancing in the Storage room.
8:32 PM BBT – Jordan is crying. Daniele promises Jordan she won’t nominate JeJo this week. But will she renom… Jeff says they’re in a great position this week. Famous last words!
8:35 PM BBT – Rachel and Kalia start to argue. Rachel saying she felt picked on by Kalia and she hurt her feelings. Kalia promises she wasn’t trying to be rude. Brendon snaps at Kalia in Rachel’s defense. Not sure what he’s thinking at this point. Rachel and Brendon head off for their own pity party.
9:30 PM BBT – Adam’s punishment, similar to Casey’s banana suit and Enzon’s penguin suit, is to wear an elf suit for a week. He can only take it off to sleep, shower, and swim. As of this morning Adam still didn’t have the elf suit. He said earlier they had to go looking for the biggest suit they could find (self-deprecating joke, not serious).
10:00 PM BBT – Daniele and Rachel have a little talk in the Candy Room. Rachel asks Daniele if she’s going to nominate Brenchel. Daniele dances around it. She swears she was trying to help Brenchel and they didn’t trust her. Daniele reiterates her “it’s nothing personal” stance. You should safely expect a Brenchel nomination on Friday. Daniele has been previewing her speech about them not sharing a key so she has to nominate both. Rachel pressing hard to try and make a deal with Daniele. Rachel sounds willing to throw everyone under the bus to make that happen.
12:30 AM BBT – Kalia says she won’t be mad at Jeff anymore because he offered her food…
12:45 AM BBT – It’s HoH Room time. Everyone looks terribly thrilled. Not so much.
1:10 AM BBT – Kalia reiterating what Daniele told Jordan earlier: you’re not a target.
1:30 AM BBT – Jeff and Rachel discussing their options. Both agree that Daniele is doomed in the long run because they have the numbers to get her sooner or later. Rachel wants to go talk deals with Daniele, but Porsche strongly advises against that move right now. Rachel really thinks Daniele will make a deal with them. I think Rachel is crazy.
1:50 AM BBT – Rachel goes alone to talk game with Daniele. She is pressuring her for a deal. Rachel proposes safety from the Vets for a week if Daniele keeps them safe this week. Daniele says she doesn’t trust them. Daniele hints that Lawon is expendable. Rachel points out Daniele has just 2 supporters while the other side has 7. If she goes after the 7 this week there will be 6 against her 2 next week in the HoH competition. The biggest take away is what I wrote about earlier: Rachel tells Daniele she can not get 4 Jury votes from the HGs remaining. She can’t win this game.
No one should be surprised with this week’s outcome. Daniele’s back was against the wall (no pun intended) and the endurance competition was tailored for the smaller HGs (reference: same comp last season). What’s unfortunate for Daniele is her lack of vision of the long game. Considering Kalia was securely in her pocket, Daniele should have dropped, let Kalia make the same nominations, and then been able to play next week. Instead, Daniele will most likely be on the block next week when her opposition has three times the competitors (6 vs 2). I can’t help but think Daniele let her ego do the thinking because she had been dying all week for a chance to eliminate Brenchel.
