Big Brother 13 wraps up this week with the Wednesday finale show which makes this the perfect time to look back over the season. Today we’ll go through the Top 10 BB13 events, numbers 10 through 6, and then tomorrow I’ll wrap it up with our countdown to the biggest event of the Big Brother season.
#10: Return of the Vets
When CBS released only 8 names and faces in late June we knew something was up. Sure enough on premiere night in they walked. Brendon & Rachel, Evel Dick & Daniele, and Jeff & Jordan. It all seemed to be a half-cocked All-Stars season attempt. With the numbers against them the Vets should have been crushed by the Newbies. In fact, I’d wager the whole Golden Key twist was designed to protect the Vets (and productions’ investment) from being entirely picked off from the start. Didn’t work out that way, did it?
We’re still a few days from finding out if the one remaining Veteran can come out on top or if the Newbies will reclaim this season for their own.
#9: Donna Martin graduates… and then pays a visit
It was silly. It was pointless. But come on, who didn’t see this coming? From the start HG Adam Poch announced his obsession with “Beverly Hills 90210″ and Tori Spelling, who played Donna Martin for those blissfully unaware. If he wasn’t praising Dingo, he was talking about Tori so when Julie Chen announced an upcoming celebrity visit and Allison Grodner tweeted one HG would be very happy the outcome seemed obvious. Adam might not get to check off winning Big Brother on his bucket list, but meeting Tori Spelling is done.
There was no impact on the game from this event, just brainless entertainment and sometimes that’s good enough. Well, at least it’s good enough to claim the #9 spot.
Foreword: Big Brother 13 won’t air its regular Sunday show this week. Only one episode for the season remains and will air on Wednesday, Sept. 14th at 9:30PM ET/PT.
Big Brother 13 is nearly complete. The final and most crucial Head of Household has finished its first two stages with only one last competition waiting in the wings. If you’ve missed the results so far, this post will get you caught up and ready for what’s ahead.
If you’re not familiar with the final HoH process, here’s how it works. There are three rounds of competition. The first round is typically an endurance battle, just like we saw on Thursday at the end of the show. Whoever wins round one automatically moves on to the three round. The remaining two HGs then face off in round two, usually a skill competition, for the second seat in round three. This season’s round two completed last night. The winners of rounds one and two then face off in a quiz A/B style competition for round three. The HG who wins round three then casts the final eviction vote by deciding who will join him/her in the final two.
Chloe: Hi Jordan, you’ve said you came back because Jeff wanted to. If given another opportunity would you come back for the third time?
Jordan: No, I am done and am retiring from Big Brother. It was a great experience to come back and I’m glad I did it, but I think I am done. It was a lot harder mentally this time around…
Chloe: What was it about Porsche that kept you from getting to know her better?
Jordan: We were both just very different and didn’t really click.
Chloe: You were betrayed by Shelly, will you be able to put that aside and maintain a friendship with her outside the house?
Jordan: Yes, of course. Whatever happened in the Big Brother house stays in the Big Brother house and I’m not going to let it affect anything in the outside world.
Big Brother 13 final HoH round 2 is now complete and we have the results for you. After Thursday’s round one endurance competition where the obvious happened and one HG appeared to easily outlast the other two, the remaining HGs faced off for the chance to move on to the third and final round. Read on to find out which two HGs will battle it out to become the final HoH of the Big Brother season.
Big Brother 13 Final HoH Part 2 results:
Kalia Booker may have slept a lot in the Big Brother house but when she talked, she held nothing back which is one of the reasons I liked her. She was the same way when I interviewed her. Check it out.
Chloe: Kalia, you fought hard to remain in the house this week and looked shocked when Adam decided not to use the veto, what was going through your head?
Kalia: What was going through my head was “Adam is an idiot.” The argument I had was logical and sound. Big Brother is about numbers and Adam had a chance to have zero adversaries and he didn’t take it.
Chloe: Do you put any blame on Porsche since she opened Pandora’s Box and put the duos back in play?
Kalia: I mean, of course. We literally were in a perfect position in the house. There was no reason to open Pandora’s box except for the curiosity and financial pay off. But being so close to the end of the game, there was nothing in that golden box that would be worth risking half a million dollars.
Matt Hoffman (BB12) returns with his final review of the Big Brother 13 season. It was an incredible opportunity to have him join and entertain us all season. Please be sure to leave a word of thanks, or anger you know if that’s your thing, in the hopes he’ll agree to return next summer for all new Chenbot wardrobe fodder. Read Matt’s past articles.
Welcome to my Swan Song. Day 69 in the Big Brother house, and the final excerpt in my Season 13 run with Big Brother Network. Chenbot pops on to greet us and send a reminder that Adam won HoH last week by saying, “He can no longer follow the power…he is the power”.
Cut to the flashback of Kalia’s eviction the previous night where she returns the black queen, but pockets the black forest ham. Adam tells us in the Diary Room that by voting to evict Kalia he is “firmly with the veterans” and that he has chosen his side. Oh yes – you heard that correctly…with 6 days left in a 77-day game, Adam has just now chosen his side.
