When last we saw our Big Brother HouseGuests, they had just found out they would be playing in pairs again this week. Porsche is upset because she screwed up the house in opening Pandora’s Box. Yes, and she should be. Pandora’s Box never works out for the Head of Household, and by opening it, she’s possibly screwed up the plans of all three of her allies.
They had the numbers. They had the power. Even CBS couldn’t stop them, until Porsche opens the box and takes the short term gain of five grand for giving up power.
Shelly, who’s smart enough game-wise to know exactly what’s going on, delivers a great line about Porsche.
“She’s got more stuffing in her chest than her head.”
Jordan and Rachel try and make an alliance with Kalia and Porsche, which doesn’t seem to make sense. If they promise to keep Kalia and Porsche safe next week, that would mean they’d have to put on of themselves up for eviction if they won Head of Household. The time for alliances is gone.
Time for the Power of Veto, with Rachel and Jordan against everyone else. When we found out that CBS was bringing back the pairs in a fairly blatant attempt to keep the vets in the game, I speculated they might do some kind of contest that favored Rachel or Jordan.
So what’s the contest? The HouseGuests hang from dummies with the faces of their evicted friends. Rachel is able to wrap herself around Brendon longer than any other contestant is able to do anything, ever. She wins it easily, and the veterans are safe.
Shelly and Jordan clear the air. Hopefully that calms things outside the house, as well. Shelly upset Jeff and Jordan, sure. But she made a game move, not an assassination. She tried and lost. I’d still rather have Shelly trying to win the game than Adam just walking through it.
Porsche is still complaining about opening Pandora’s Box, now that her targets have come down. She did make five thousand dollars off of the Box, but it’s wrecked her plans to evict Rachel.
By the way, if you have a choice to evict Rachel or Jordan, evict Jordan. You’re into the Jury House section of the game, every move should be based on who you could beat in the finals. It’s all about the money, now.
Rachel takes herself and Jordan down, and now Adam and Shelly are on the block. Shelly feels like she’s a goner this week, which is probably true.
