Big Brother 13: Week 4 Tuesday Update – Who Has The Votes| August 2, 2011 at 12:29 PM EDT
Big Brother marches on to its next eviction and while things may have changed up during yesterday’s Veto ceremony it looks like Daniele will still get what she wants come Thursday night. Of course nothing is ever certain and it’s never a good thing to be a pawn in this game no matter how many votes you think you have locked down. So just how solid are all those promises for votes? Let’s take a look.
This week it will only take four votes to evict out from the seven HGs voting which also means there’s no chance for a tie-breaker. Both Jordan and Brendon start out with one supporting vote each: Jeff and Rachel, respectively of course. If Daniele wants Brendon out, and she does, then she’ll be able to influence Kalia and Lawon to vote in her favor for Brendon’s eviction. That right there puts Brendon on the ledge with three of the four votes necessary to evict.
Porsche, Shelly, and Adam are the remaining three votes this week on Big Brother. Porsche is clearly in Rachel’s corner, but is she willing to risk going against the majority and coming out on the short side of things if she votes against Jordan and she stays? I’m not so sure, but that doesn’t stop Brenchel from trying. Yesterday afternoon (Flashback to 4:30PM BBT) the potentially doomed couple attempted to persuade Porsche by promising her Jeff would not be upset if Porsche voted against Jordan (liars!). Whether or not it’s just lip service, Porsche seems to agree Brendon has a shot. If she stays with them that’s a second vote to keep Brendon against three to evict.
Shelly and Adam aren’t quite so clearly in one camp or the other when it comes to the Veteran couples. Both have remained semi-neutral and it’s serving them well at this stage. Flashback to yesterday at 5:30PM BBT and you’ll find Shelly and Adam agreeing that whatever they do, they have to do it together (vote the same). Later the two Newbies have a brief talk with JeJo. Shelly confirms to JeJo that she’s convinced Adam to vote to keep Jordan. Adam said she didn’t have to try too hard to convince him.
If Shelly and Adam stick to the plan then we’ll see Brendon evicted from Big Brother 13 by at least five votes to two. Should Porsche learn the odds are stacked that high against Brendon then I’d expect her to flip her vote and go with the house. Either way, it looks like we’re in our final days of Brenchel.
What do you think? Does Brendon have a chance or is Jordan safe?
