Big Brother 13 Episode 18: Thoughts From Former HG Matt Hoffman

| August 18, 2011 at 9:54 AM EST

Matt Hoffman (BB12) returns with his review of the latest Big Brother episode. You’ll find him here at BBN each Thursday & Friday all season. Read Matt’s past articles.

Matt Hoffman Big Brother 12

Before I begin this write-up, I would like to suggest that you make this episode into a drinking game. If you take a drink every time Shelly cries, you probably won’t make it to the end without passing out. I wish I would’ve known this in advance because I ended up sitting through this whole torturous hour…sober, at that! You can thank me later. Now – on with the show…

As with every Wednesday episode, we start with a reminder of Sunday’s HoH nominations. Daniele is very proud of her brilliant and adaptive strategy:

DANIELE: These nominations are perfect because they keep my options open. Plan A – nominations stay the same, Shelly goes home, I have completely wasted my HoH, and either Brendon or Jeff will kick my ass out next week. Plan B – CBS plants drama by removing Brenchel’s chips from the veto bag, they can’t play, and we backdoor Brendon. Plan C – Lawon returns with his special power to award me the $500,000 so that we can end the steaming hot pile of crap that is “Big Brother 13” right now.

Next up we see the first of many Diary Room sessions tonight where Shelly shows how completely delusional she truly is. In this particular snippet, she drums up some tears (DRINK!) and lets us in on her intense anger at all the “betrayal and lies” going on.

Big Brother 13 Episode 18

In order to get to the bottom of all the nastiness going on, Shelly decides to call out Brendon and Rachel in front of Kalia, Porsche, Jeff, and Jordan. This sounds like a good plan in theory, but it is slightly flawed by the mere fact that Shelly is actually the annoying epicenter of most of the duplicity going on in the house. Brenchel learned some things last season when they attended my “How To Turn Around a Public Accusation” seminar, and they end up making Shelly look both confused and foolish throughout this entire interaction.

Big Brother 13: Week 6 Eviction Predictions

| August 18, 2011 at 9:00 AM EST

It’s eviction time again on Big Brother 13 tonight so let’s hear some eviction predictions! All season I’ll be collecting predictions from other great Big Brother websites and sharing them here. Check out all of our Big Brother predictions and then share your own in the poll below.

Big Brother 13 Week 6 Eviction Predictions – Brendon or Shelly:

Big Brother 13 Brendon
Big Brother 13 Brendon
Big Brother Access Big Brother 13 Brendon
Big Brother 13 Brendon
Zap2It Big Brother 13 Brendon
Big Brother Live Big Brother 13 Brendon
Big Brother 13 Brendon

Things aren’t looking good for Brendon once again. There was a chance it’d be close with a potential tie-breaker, but when Jeff let it be known he wouldn’t be creating that tie just for Daniele to evict Brendon things became clear.

What do you think? Share your guess in the poll and explain why in the comments.

| August 18, 2011 at 8:32 AM EST

Wow what an awesome day for some drama in the Big Brother house.  We all knew it was coming but didn’t know when.  Today it happened.  The two couples go at it and even Jordan goes off.  It’s pretty obvious who is going home and no one wants to babysit this go around.  Sounds like the dynamic duo is going down.

Big Brother 13: Vets Alliance Breaks Out In Fights

| August 17, 2011 at 5:57 PM EST

Big Brother 13 Veterans Alliance fighting

It was inevitable that we’d see fights break out in the Big Brother 13 house. With the realization they might not have the votes come Thursday Brenchel started to lash out and spark arguments with Jeff and Jordan. Well, it’s mostly Rachel agitating Jeff and him responding to her bait. It didn’t stop there though as Jordan got in on the fun later and started yelling at Rachel. Good times on the Live Feeds.

Big Brother 13 Episode 18: Week 6 Veto Show Tonight

| August 17, 2011 at 12:15 PM EST

Power of Veto

Tonight on Big Brother 13 we’ll get to watch the latest PoV competition where there were finally prizes for the HGs to collect. Well, some non-prizes were handed out too so that should be fun to watch those get passed around. If you’ve got one of our free Big Brother mobile apps then you probably already read how the competition and ceremony turned out, but if not, then you can go ahead get all those Veto spoilers.

We’re just another day from the next eviction and it looks like things are getting worse for one of the Vet couples as a new alliance may be emerging from the past. This will be one to keep an eye on and see if it lasts more than a week or if everyone gets right back to turning on one another.

Update: Vet alliance imploding this afternoon with JeJo’s announcement of how they plan to vote this week. Rachel is furious. Flashback to 12:55PM BBT for the action.

Big Brother 13: Can Late Night Deals Survive Sober Mornings?

| August 17, 2011 at 11:14 AM EST

Big Brother should think of breaking out the booze more often or maybe Daniele should rethink having so much of it. Either way, Daniele opened up to Jeff and Jordan in a late night, tell-all session that may have brought a former alliance back together.

Flashback to 3:30 AM BBT to find Daniele sitting down with Jeff and Jordan for a 90+ minute lovefest. Daniele is profusely apologizing for having attempted Jeff several weeks ago. She goes through the scenario and explains how she watched her friends picked off and realized something needed to change. Ergo, the backdoor-Jeff plan was born. She tells them it was a mistake and she went about things poorly.
