Big Brother 13: Veterans Meet, Reunite, Remain Suspicious| July 26, 2011 at 12:09 PM EST
After a tumultuous day in the Big Brother house the Veteran alliance came together late last night for a mini House meeting which was more of an alliance meeting as none of the Newbs were invited or participated. Instead the fifty minute exchange featured a perturbed Daniele, a defensive Daniele, and a joyous, cheerful Daniele. Well, not that last one. It was mostly just Daniele pissed off at the group while she should have been angry at herself for completely blowing her once strong position.
Flashback to 11:47PM BBT last night on Cameras 1 & 2. Brendon opens the meeting by expressing his concerns that as a group they’re starting to falter. He wants to get back to the way they were on Day 5 in the game when they banded together and promised to protect each other and first focus on eliminating the Newbs.
While Brendon tries to very generally imply everyone in the alliance isn’t focused on supporting just the alliance Jeff jumps right to the matter. “Where are you at, Daniele?” Jeff asks. Daniele immediately pushes it back on them saying they’ve been acting weird to her and woe-is-me as the “odd man out.” She insists the late night crew (mainly consists of her, Dominic, and Lawon, and slightly Kalia and Adam as well) is only talking “nonsense” which isn’t completely true, but she presents it that way.
Jeff starts airing his concerns about the way Daniele has avoided him in recent days. She’ll leave the room within thirty seconds of his arrival. He got to the point he was counting. His conspiracy theory goes a little overboard when he suggests Daniele would leave and Lawon would enter as if there was some sort of trade off going on.
Daniele insists there is nothing romantic between her and Dominic. She says she’s keeping emotions out of it and he doesn’t have any control over her. Daniele again starts strongly insisting her partnership with Dominic was completely Rachel/Brenchel’s idea and she only did it at their request. This is completely false as Daniele had been working on Dominic well before she planted that idea in Rachel’s head.
Knowing that she’s lost this battle and Dominic is on the way out this week Daniele states she doesn’t care who goes home. She won’t be thrilled if it’s Dominic, but she’ll go along with the group. Daniele does care and has a vested interest in keeping him.
Jeff says he’s willing to forgive and forget, but Dominic can’t stay. He was okay with that plan until very recently, but he doesn’t trust him and he knows this “backdoor Jeff” plan came from somewhere. Brendon later agrees and echos Jeff’s feelings on Dominic. Daniele overplayed her hand, shoved Dominic’s survival down everyone’s throat, and now she’s going to lose him. Poorly played, Daniele. I expected better.
After a few more arguments and disagreements the Veterans alliance meeting ends. Hugs all around, but I’d wager trust is no where to be found. Dominic will go home this week and Daniele will remain outside Brenchel and Jeff & Jordan’s trust. Daniele has already told the Newbs that she’ll nominate Jeff given the chance and I don’t doubt it. Time will tell who gets to make the first strike.
