Jordan and Porsche were nominated
Porsche won the power of veto
Because Porsche won the veto, this means tonight on the live show, she will use the veto to save herself, and then (according to her) evict Jordan from the house. This is where Porsche stood last night, and her reasoning was because “Jordan won before”. Things can change over the course of 12+ hours, and for Porsche’s sake, she should hope so.
It’s almost a fact that tonight’s HoH competition will be some type of endurance challenge, and to keep Rachel in the game over Jordan will rank up there as one of the most foolish moves in the game this season. I’d actually put it higher than opening Pandora’s Box, mostly because she somehow survived that and is still planning on making another dumb move.
While Porsche still may end up winning HoH, she’s clearly choosing the bumpier road to get there. If this is a result of Rachel getting it in her head that she needs to go up against the best to be the best, it’s yet another reason Rachel should win this season if she’s in the finals. Rachel hasn’t even practiced what she preaches, yet Porsche can’t see that and is still taking her?
We’ll know for sure what happens during the live show, and tonight appears to be a long tonight, so make sure you’re following on facebook or twitter to receive updates through the endurance challenge, or watch it on superpass yourself (free for 3 days)
In one of the biggest surprises of the season, Adam won the power of veto, and he’s been reminded of it every minute since then. Despite humoring Kalia and Porsche the last 48 or so hours, listening to whatever options they threw at him, the reality of it was that he was not going to use the veto today. In fact, the only reason he didn’t throw the veto competition was because he’s been completely awful all season and is now trying to build a resume if he manages to get into the final 2.
So that brings us to today, it was time for Adam to awkwardly stare at the memory wall for a bit and act like he’s making this huge decision when his mind has been made up for days, then call in the rest of the house for his dream crushing announcement.
He has decided to not use the veto.
It was finally time for Adam to put on his big boy panties (is that a term? it is now) and declare the side he’ll mount his horses to for the next week and a half. Bad news for Kalia and Porsche, it’s not with them.
Adam sat down Kalia and tried to explain his logic saying he wants to prove he’s the best in the house by going up against the best – Rachel. That’s a fine theory and very commendable, but this decision also likely gives him a 50% chance of going against the worst player in the house this season – Jordan. That logic has been hammered home this season by the veterans, yet they’ve constantly contradicted themselves all year by carrying America’s Sweetheart. Is it bad to carry Jordan? No, she’s a loyal ally and a super sweet person. Just don’t piss on me and tell me it’s raining.
The veterans remained together because they’re loyal, and they allowed Adam and Shelly to tag along because they were loyal. If they really wanted to compete against the best, we’d see Daniele, Brendon, Jeff and Rachel in the final 4.. or at least most of those players.
Anyway, right now Rachel and Jordan are highly likely to vote out Kalia tomorrow, and unless a change of heart takes place, the final 4 will consist of three of the weakest players in the house this season. I’m almost rooting for a finale of Porsche vs Adam just so I can see the reaction of the jury when they have to pick between one of the two.
Here is the results of the veto:
What this means: Adam promised Jordan that he wasn’t going to use the veto if he won it, but aside from the girls pushing Rachel into changing the course of the game, this is the only chance Porsche and Kalia have to stay in the game today. Kalia is well aware of it, right now she’s hounding Adam in the bathroom about using the veto, but his reply is noting that she was the only one to vote for him to leave versus Shelly.
She suggested he even use it on Porsche, and it’s something he’s considering, but reality is it’s probably not going to happen.
The only reason he may use it is because now is the time, no matter what Julie Chen eventually says to him. If he uses it, Jordan will go to jury and Rachel can’t compete which guarantees one of the three newbies HoH.
2:39 BBT – Rachel and Jordan are in the HoH bathroom saying how they do trust Adam, and they’re happy they kept him in the game. I’m sure Adam is going to be treated like a king this week.
2:43 BBT – Rachel is positive that Kalia would win the game if she were in the final 2 with pretty much anyone in the game. Plus she also said that she’s rather give Jordan $500k instead of Porsche $50k meaning she’d rather come in 2nd to Jordan than 1st to Porsche. Really? Is this the best friend house, or a competition to win half a million dollars? I’d laugh my ass off if Rachel did that and lost..
2:47 BBT – If the two vets don’t win, Jordan said she’d want Adam to win out of anyone in the house because he’s a good guy. That’s fine and dandy, but why have the vets blown smoke up everyone’s ass all year about not wanting a floater to win?
2:52 BBT – Jordan said she’d feel bad about voting out Porsche or Kalia, so Rachel is taking the opportunity to talk herself and Brendon up. “We’re starting a family, Brendon is in medical schoo, blah blah” Sounds like someone is trying to earn a vote if Jordan is booted to jury.
What do you think, will he use it?
I hope everyone is having a good and safe holiday weekend so far. It’s Saturday, and that means it’s time for the Power of Veto competition. There is no word yet on when it will be, but they have been working on it since last night, so whatever the competition will be, it won’t be rolling a ball down a snake whenever it does happen. Everyone in the house has been studying the memory wall real hard, to prepare for a potential morphing competition (where they merge faces and you have to guess which two). I doubt that will be the veto, but it could likely be one of the two HoH competitions that will happen this week.
Note – I’ve had some complaints about my style of posts where some just want updates, so let me appease both types of readers for a moment…
Back to Veto talk… Barring any special moves by Adam, the competition today is not important at all. Here are the likely results:
- Jordan, Rachel, or Adam win: Nominations remain the same
- Kalia wins: She takes herself down, Adam goes up, Porsche goes home
- Porsche wins: She takes herself down, Adam goes up, Kalia goes home
It’s pretty straight forward this week, and the only situation that can shake up the house is if Adam wins, and he changes the nominations. The situation is so bad for the newbies that it would almost be better for them to throw the competition than to win.
Adam is pretty determined to go to the final 3 with Jordan and Rachel, as he said last night, so I look for another robot / gumball result for him. He’ll try, but not hard, so he’ll lose. Shit, even if he tries hard, he’ll still probably lose, so giving it even 99% effort will result in a loss for our buddy Adam.
In the unlikely event that Adam does win, he has already promised Jordan he won’t use it… so there goes that sitaution.
Here is a little tip for the newbies, and by newbies I mean Kalia and Porsche…..
Play aggressive. Take tips from Jeff. Pull Rachel aside and tell her that she’s not getting their votes to win unless she helps them get to the final 4. Tell her that if she sits next to Jordan, neither of you are going to vote for her to win, neither will Dani. It only takes 4 votes to win, so potentially losing 3 votes is pretty crucial. Let it be known that there is a big difference between $50k and $500k, and if she wants that extra zero, she has to keep them both this week.
Will it work? Maybe, maybe not, but it has a much better chance to work than just hoping Adam wins and takes one of you off. That’s not happening. If you don’t even try to save your asses over the next few days by pushing Rachel to vote for you, you deserve to be where you’ll end up, the jury.
That being said….
Adam has to be one of the worst competitors to ever get this far in the game, right? Or is he the best? I’d really like to think he’s some brilliant Big Brother genius who is floating along and only winning competitions when he absolutely knows his ass is on the line (see: week 6), but I’m starting to think that’s not the case. Even that PoV win was in a competition that he was able to practice all summer, and it still took Jeff throwing it away in order for him to win.
After watching him fail at yet another challenge tonight, I think I’m leaning to him just sucking. Sure, I knew the results before I watched the show, but I didn’t realize just how bad he did, and how he routinely does in nearly every competition. The guy is like Rain Man when it comes to saying what happened on what day in the house, yet is the first one eliminated in the live memory HoH competition last week?
I think if he were throwing most of these competitions and just hanging out as Mr I’mNotAThreat, he would be doing better when he does lose. That’s the reason I put him as the worst final 5, instead of final 6 because Rachel and Jordan will be very stupid not to take him along tomorrow. Being that he’s practically nonexistent in competitions means the HoH will be Jordan and Rachel vs Kalia tomorrow, and even if he does somehow pull some miracle shit and find himself in the final 2, there is no way the jury will ever award him money.
Like I said, it’s too bad because I like the guy, and think he just badly chokes under pressure. Loving Big Brother all your life doesn’t automatically equal being good at it. But hey Adam, if you read this when you’re out, hit me up because I’d love to interview you to help clear your game up.
What’s your opinion on Adam’s season.. is playing this bad intentional or not?
I was fully expecting this to happen when the feeds went down to trivia, so much that I changed my header to the results before it was official. However, last week I wasn’t expecting the feeds to turn on with Porsche reading her Pandora’s Box card instead of nominations revealed, so you never can be sure.
Now, you can. Adam and Shelly are officially on the block, and barring any twists with Shelly’s new best friend, the fortune teller, one of the two will be going to the jury house this Thursday. There is like a 96.9% chance that Shelly will be evicted this week, so this may be the most predictable week in the season.
I said what the vets needed to do in order to get back in the game, and one has been complete. Next step, win the HoH on Thursday
Getting Rachel and Jordan back in the game:
Win the Power of Veto
- Win The Head of Household
If this happens, it will be Jordan, Rachel and Adam vs Kalia and Porsche, and barring any twists or flips, Jordan and Rachel will be the final 2 because of that.
Thoughts? Let’s hear them…
