Big Brother 13 Week 5: Who Has The Votes| August 9, 2011 at 12:10 PM EDT
This week has turned in to the most ridiculous exercise in insanity that I’m still shocked by what those with the power have allowed to happen. Not only have they allowed it to happen, they’re now taking ownership of the plan and patting themselves on the back with lines like “this is genius!” and “they’re going to be so pissed!”
Read on to find out the latest for Thursday’s evictions and the reality of the voting landscape this week on Big Brother 13.
Let’s do a quick recap to get everyone caught up. On Sunday Shelly convinced Kalia the best way to move forward in the game would be for her to get Jeff and Jordan to like her again by renominating a floater, Porsche in particular, at the Veto ceremony after Jeff saved himself. Kalia took this plan to Daniele who initially rejected it, but then became convinced when Lawon said he wanted to be the pawn. After ignoring the upcoming twist for days Lawon, Porsche, Daniele, and Kalia now strongly believe this week’s evictee will return to the game and might even automatically become the new HoH. As such, Lawon is excited to be the pawn and ready to get evicted on Thursday.
Yes, you read that correctly.
On Thursday night there will be six votes which leaves room for a potential tie-breaker by Kalia as the HoH. Rachel and Lawon are the nominees, so they won’t be voting, of course. In a normal week I could just give you the rundown of where all the expected votes stand, but that really doesn’t apply as much right now since Lawon’s alliance is planning to evict him with the expectation that he’ll be reborn in to the game with super powers. However, Daniele, believing herself to be the master strategist, has what she considers a safety net just in case she changes her mind at the last minute.
Daniele’s plan is to wait until Thursday night, listen to any more details Julie Chen provides about the twist, and then if she feels it’s too risky to let Lawon be evicted she’ll clap her hands while Julie talks as a signal to flip the votes and evict Rachel. Big problem with that plan though: Daniele does not have the votes she thinks she has.
Should Daniele decide they need to evict Rachel they’ll have only two votes to do so: Daniele and Porsche. The votes to keep Rachel will be Jeff, Jordan, Shelly, and Adam. By a vote of 4-2, Lawon will be evicted and face off with America’s Vote.
It’s going to be amazing to watch if Daniele claps her hands (or whatever she uses as the signal) and Lawon still leaves the house. She’ll be an interesting shade of pale.
There are a few side notes worth including here about all this craziness. Last night Lawon came to Daniele and asked who he was supposed to be mad at about his “surprise” eviction/nomination. The whole house knows Lawon knew ahead of time that he’d be the renom, but he keeps acting like it was a shocker. Lawon seems to be very confused about this plan which is not good news for him.
Later Porsche echoed the same sentiments: “I’m very confused on this whole week. Did they just play us?” Yes. Yes they did, Porsche.
