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.
Thursday night’s endurance competition fell short of past seasons’ glory when it wrapped up after less than an hour. Rachel secured her spot in round three after outlasting Adam and Porsche. You can read the competition recap here.
Round two took place late last night in the Big Brother house when Porsche and Adam faced off in what sounds like an underwater challenge. Adam detailed how he made a fatal mistake by throwing away his goggles making the challenge even more difficult. Porsche won the race and the second seat in the third round of the competition.
The third and final round of the last Head of Household usually takes place live, but not on the final show of the season. Since we’ve only got one show left it leaves some scheduling questions. If they wait until Wednesday to complete round three then the Jury interrogation will have to be held live which I believe would be a first (anyone remember differently?). We’ll have to wait and see how production handles this timeline.
What we do know so far is that the winners of rounds one and two, Rachel and Porsche, have made an agreement to take each other to the final two. Flashback to 9:29PM BBT last night to hear them discuss in Adam’s absence why they’ll take each other.
Later, at 10:09PM BBT Rachel informs Adam that she made a deal with Porsche to take her if she won round two, but she’s nervous that Porsche will beat her. I agree that Rachel has a better chance against Adam. Adam tells Rachel that he’ll vote for her even if she evicts him. This is the same thing he told Jordan last Thursday. He then adds that if Porsche wins round three he’ll have to reconsider.
When Adam talks privately with Porsche, flashback to 10:35PM BBT last night, he tells her he knows he’s going to Jury and will be the deciding Jury vote. He’s attempting to worry her in to taking him over Rachel, but will it work? I get the feeling that Porsche wants to be the only Newbie in the Final 2. Adam reiterates to Porsche that his vote will be influenced by the third round competition, but then goes on to detail how impressed he is with Rachel’s game. Porsche tries to say her game is equal to Rachel’s. Hmm.
So there we have the latest Big Brother status. Still several days away from the Wednesday night finale so there could be lots of mind-changing as we get closer to the Jury voting. Keep your eyes on the Live Feeds and see who can secure Adam’s vote.
