Another week, another potential breakup of Brenchel. It’s what we’re learning to expect from Big Brother 13. Now that the Veto ceremony is over and we have our final options for elimination it’s time to take a look at who has the votes to stay and who could end up walking out the door with no more chances to return. Oh who are we kidding? Pandora’s Box is still out there somewhere, right?
I started to get in to the votes yesterday with the news that Brendon would probably go up on the block despite his offered truce to Daniele. Just like last week we’ll have six votes with the potential for the HoH breaking any ties.
Brendon is going to start with at least one vote in his pocket from Rachel. On the other side of the fence Shelly should start with two votes of support from Kalia and Porsche considering they’ll be following Daniele’s lead this week. Sure, Porsche gave Brendon her vote the last time he was up on the block, but she’s bitter that Rachel never thanked her for going against the house. Now that Porsche has found a group more accepting of velour track suits I don’t expect her to return to Brenchel anytime soon. Now we’re at 1-2 with Brendon leaving Big Brother and half the votes counted.
Three votes remain, but just one more is need for Brendon’s eviction, assuming a tie-breaker would go against him. Considering Daniele seems hell-bent on his eviction I think it’s a safe assumption. But like Jordan says, “making assumptions is like making pancakes. Yummy!” Just kidding, she didn’t say that. I don’t think.
Jeff and Jordan have been considering ditching their Brenchel support since they know eventually they’ll need to get them out of their way, but after last night’s conversation with Adam I don’t think they’re quite ready to sever those ties. But they’re really in a tough spot since both Shelly and Brendon are allies, at least more so than being against them. Flashback to 3:10 AM BBT last night and you’ll find Jeff working Adam for a vote to support Brendon staying. Adam is extremely hesitant and doesn’t sound convinced.
Minus Adam’s vote Thursday looks poised at 3-2 with Brendon staying. Adam’s in a big position this week whether or not he knows it. I think he’d be best served by forcing a tie and letting Daniele keep Brendon’s eviction blood to herself. Well, maybe it wouldn’t really be his best move, but I’m ready for a tie-breaker event and here’s our chance.
My prediction: Brendon walks out the door for the third time in a year and becomes the first member of the jury. Shelly lives to lie another day.
Who do you think has the votes this week in Big Brother 13??
