Big Brother 13 Week 7: Shelly Works To Flip The Vote Again – Updated| August 23, 2011 at 10:42 AM EDT
She did it once. Can she do it again? Shelly is up to her old tricks again in the Big Brother 13 house as she works to manipulate the votes and make the seemingly obvious decision suddenly become the impossible. She’s got two more days to work the house and see what she can come up with before Thursday’s eviction. Let’s see what she’s done so far and what are her chances are for success.
After Monday’s Power of Veto Ceremony where Jeff removed Porsche and set Daniele up for eviction it looked like a done deal. If JeJo wanted Daniele out, then Shelly would follow her marching orders and vote accordingly, right? Not this time!
Flashback to Monday (8/22) @ 2:16PM BBT and you’ll find Shelly starting to work her angles with Porsche and Adam to keep Daniele. Her reasoning? They (Newbies) won’t be able to split up Jeff and Jordan on their own. Shelly knows if they keep Daniele she’ll work as their tool to split up the remaining couple. It’s really not bad reasoning but it’s a dangerous move considering how sensitive Jeff is to betrayals and backstabbing.
Shelly flat out asks Porsche and Adam how they would vote if the eviction was right now. Porsche says she’d evict Kalia, and that’s to be expected since Daniele has already convinced Porsche that she needs to stay. Adam isn’t on the same page though. He says he wants to evict Daniele. Roadblock.
Shelly comes back to Adam later, Flashback to 2:36PM BBT, for a one on one conversation. Shelly does a good job of laying out her plan, but Adam insists that he does not trust Daniele. He remembers when Daniele told him she’d work to keep him while she actually worked to evict him. Adam hasn’t trusted her since then and wonders how long she’d stay good to him at this point.
While I’m enjoying Shelly’s game play for at least some action in the game I’m a little troubled by a comment she made to Adam. Shelly suggests that even *if* Adam decided to join her and Porsche to keep Daniele that she still doesn’t know where she could get the fourth vote. What?? Oh Shelly. Adam points out there are only five votes this week. They’d only need three to keep whoever they want. Shelly, why in the world would you put yourself out there like that, push to go against your ally (JeJo), and not even know how many votes you need, much less doing it when you think you don’t have enough. Now maybe, maybe that was just a ploy from Shelly, but I don’t think it was.
Many online viewers were anticipating Adam running to Jeff to tell about Shelly’s plan, but surprisingly, that hasn’t really happened. Shortly after Shelly’s second attempt with Adam Jeff came out to the pool and talked with Adam for awhile. Shelly had scattered, so Adam had the opportunity, but didn’t reveal any details. He did, however, discuss his distrust for Daniele. I think that solidifies how we can expect Adam to vote.
Jump to last night (10:42PM BBT) and you’ll find Shelly having a private talk with Jordan. Jordan flat out asks her if she’s still voting out Daniele. Shelly adamantly insists that’s the plan and she wouldn’t turn on JeJo by keeping Daniele. Hmm…
Shelly has two more days to figure that out before the eviction. Can she get Adam to put aside his distrust of Daniele and join her with Porsche, or will she decide to sit back down and ride it out with JeJo? What do you think Shelly should do?

Update: If you weren’t convinced that Adam has made up his mind then Flashback to this morning at 9:23AM BBT. Adam and Shelly are discussing their options. Shelly asks if he’s decided and Adam answers yes. It’s another good discussion to hear though.
