After the rush of a new HoH the Big Brother 13 house fell back in to its usual Friday routine. Well, mostly usual. Since Have-Nots were already determined during Thursday’s competition we just got their food reveal, which was not as nice as jelly beans and jerky. As a bonus for viewers there was also the elf suit reveal for Adam and while it’s funny, it’s not as bad as a penguin or banana suit. No shunning required.
Lastly was the big event of the day: nominations. After everyone had their turn pleading their case the decisions were made, keys were pulled, and the tears flowed like cheap Vegas rail drinks.
Big Brother 13 Live Feed Highlights – July 29, 2011:
11:15 AM BBT – Lockdown is finally over after 45 hours.
11:45 AM BBT – Brendon complains the competition was tailored to smaller frames like Daniele. I guess all the big guys did go first and Kalia was short enough to tuck the ski pole handle under her shoulder.
1:00 PM BBT – Santa’s little helper, Adam the elf, has arrived. It’s pretty silly, but nothing revealing like a unitard or a one-piece suit like the banana or penguin.
2:00 PM BBT – Even more surprises in store for the HGs. America’s vote for disgusting food is revealed. The winners were seaweed and sardines.
2:15 PM BBT – Rachel and Porsche discussing Shelly. Rachel doesn’t trust her, or at least she’s trying to plant seeds of doubt about Shelly in Porsche’s mind.
2:30 PM BBT – Shelly up in Daniele’s HoH room. Daniele asks if she was going to nominate her. Shelly denies it and blames Rachel on that story. She’s agreeing with Daniele about nominating Rachel, but she’s also protecting Jeff and Jordan by saying their honest/respectable/etc. Shelly suggests Daniele try to make a deal with JeJo.
3:00 PM BBT – Jeff and Jordan come up to talk with Daniele. Daniele explains she has to go after Brenchel this week because they would have returned the favor if they had gained the power. There’s discussion of the deal Rachel proposed (keep all 4 Vets safe and they do the same). Daniele makes an offer: you’re safe this week if I’m safe next week. Jeff doesn’t seem to believe/trust her, but says if she does that they’ll make the same consideration. Can’t tell if he’s intentionally not saying “yes” so he’s not bound to the deal, but he kinda skirts making an answer.
3:30 PM BBT – Daniele tells Kalia they should keep Shelly for the final four or five because she’d be easy to eliminate then. Kalia thinks Shelly is more dangerous than Daniele realizes
3:40 PM BBT – Brenchel head up to talk with Daniele. It’s a mind-numbing, near hour long discussion with 95% of the talking coming from Brenchel and being received by a stone-faced Daniele. Good times. While it’s mostly rambling, Brendon makes a good point (shocking, I know). If Daniele goes after them, then instead of everyone working together to push forward she’ll be caught up in the remaining partner coming after her. Then it’ll go back and forth until one or the other is gone while everyone else has focused on the game and moved forward.
4:25 PM BBT – Brenchel finally stops talking and leaves. Daniele puts her finger to her head and pulls the imaginary trigger. That can’t be a good sign for Brenchel, right?
6:15 PM BBT – Live Feeds are back, nominations are in, and Brenchel is in the Have-Not room crying and consoling one another like Daniele just ran over their puppy. Overly dramatic, just like you’d expect.
6:30 PM BBT – Daniele tells Kalia that Lawon is effectively a useless partner. She wants him to actually try at things. Daniele pressuring Kalia that her safety rests on an HoH win next week.
7:00 PM BBT – Jeff will vote out Rachel before Brendon if it comes down to it.
7:20 PM BBT – Rachel wants Jeff to go schmooze the DR for some magical twist like another Diamond Power of Veto.
8:15 PM BBT – Jeff and Jordan say that if they win the HoH next week, they’ll turn on their deal with Daniele. Don’t say that out loud or someone might hear you and report it!
11:30 PM BBT – Jeff is suggesting to Brendon that he should stay this week to help rally the troops (ie, be a bigger target than Jeff!).
12:00 AM BBT – Kalia has been keeping an eye on Shelly and is convinced she’s making deals around the house. Paranoia!
The game has really come back to life this past week and things are only going to keep getting better. We’ve got the Veto competition coming up this afternoon so stay close by and we’ll have those spoilers for you. But I’ll tell you know, if either Brendon or Rachel come down from the block, expect Jordan to go up in his/her place. Daniele thinks this is the safest plan to make sure either Brendon or Rachel goes home this week.
