BB 13 week 10 , day 2...much to catch up on....

Most of it would be redundant to post now. Suffice it to say that Shelly was evicted as expected, leaving Adam, Porsche, Kalia, Rachel, and Jordan as the final five with another 1 1/2 weeks to go to eliminate down to the final two, next week. Much strategizing and some sobbing in the house today. Standby ...... two thumbs up

Kubicek's probably right about Adam cutting his own throat.

'Big Brother 13' Spoilers: Who Won the Veto in the Final 5?
John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

When Big Brother gets down to five people, the Power of Veto is just as important as the HoH. It can change the game and decide who stays and who goes.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 13 spoilers.

Rachel is the HoH and she nominated Porsche and Kalia.

Adam won the Power of Veto.

Wow, Adam won a competition? It sounds like it was the annual OTEV challenge where HGs need to run around and find answers to clues delivered by OTEV, who last season was a Broadway-singing clam. As per usual, Jordan was the first person out.

Adam winning is certainly the most interesting possible outcome, but sadly, I suspect he won't use it and Kalia will be evicted. In fact, that's what he's saying behind closed doors while talking to himself.

However, that's not the smartest decision. I've already written about how Adam has no shot at beating Rachel or Jordan in the finale, but now he has the chance to give himself a guaranteed spot in the final three if only he'd use the veto and evict Jordan this week. Why? Well, let's look at the math to figure it out.

There are two basic scenarios. In the first, Adam does not use the PoV and Kalia gets evicted. Then next week there are 12 possible outcomes for the HoH and PoV winners. Here's how I see each of them breaking down.

Final 4 Possibilities If Kalia is Evicted

HoH=Adam, PoV=Adam: He's safe. Rachel or Porsche is evicted.
HoH=Adam, PoV=Rachel: He's safe. Rachel evicts Porsche.
HoH=Adam, PoV=Porsche: He's safe. Porsche evicts Rachel.
HoH=Adam, PoV=Jordan: He's safe. Jordan evicts Porsche.
HoH=Porsche, PoV=Adam: He's safe. Adam evicts Rachel.
HoH=Porsche, PoV=Rachel: Rachel evicts Adam.
HoH=Porsche, PoV=Porsche: Adam evicts Rachel.
HoH=Porsche, PoV=Jordan: Jordan evicts Adam.
HoH=Jordan, PoV=Adam: He's safe. Adam evicts Rachel or Porsche.
HoH=Jordan, PoV=Rachel: Rachel evicts Porsche.
HoH=Jordan, PoV=Porsche: Porsche evicts Rachel.
HoH=Jordan, PoV=Jordan: Rachel evicts Porsche.

This assumes Rachel would evict Porsche over Adam and Porsche would evict Rachel over anyone. But as you can see, of the 12 possible outcomes, Adam gets evicted in two of them.

Now let's look at what happens if Adam uses the Power of Veto and they evict Jordan this week. Again, there are 12 possible outcomes.

Final 4 Possibilities If Jordan is Evicted

HoH=Adam, PoV=Adam: He's safe. Porsche evicts Rachel.
HoH=Adam, PoV=Rachel: He's safe. Rachel evicts Kalia.
HoH=Adam, PoV=Porsche: He's safe. Porsche evicts Rachel.
HoH=Adam, PoV=Kalia: He's safe. Kalia evicts Rachel.
HoH=Porsche, PoV=Adam: He's safe. Adam evicts Rachel.
HoH=Porsche, PoV=Rachel: Rachel evicts Kalia.
HoH=Porsche, PoV=Porsche: Kalia evicts Rachel.
HoH=Porsche, PoV=Kalia: Kalia evicts Rachel.
HoH=Kalia, PoV=Adam: He's safe. Adam evicts Rachel.
HoH=Kalia, PoV=Rachel: Rachel evicts Porsche.
HoH=Kalia, PoV=Porsche: Porsche evicts Rachel.
HoH=Kalia, PoV=Kalia: Porsche evicts Rachel.

This assumes that Rachel would go after Kalia or Porsche before Adam and that Kalia and Porsche would always vote out Rachel.

Mathematically, it proves that if Adam uses the veto and gets rid of Jordan, he will be guaranteed a spot in the final three, but if he doesn't use it, there's a chance he could get evicted in fourth place.

Additionally, if he uses the veto, there's a 75 percent chance Rachel gets evicted in fourth place. But even if he wants her out, there's only a 50 percent chance of Rachel being evicted next week if he doesn't use it.

In other words, logically speaking, if Adam wants the best possible chance at not only making it to the end, but also winning the game, he will use the Power of Veto to save Porsche and then those two will vote to evict Jordan. Sure, I'd personally like to see that happen, but I also think it is the best possible game move for Adam, so if/when he doesn't do it, it will be yet another example of why he's such a bad game player.


This would have been fun to see....haven't looked online yet....

'Big Brother 13' Recap: When Adam Met Tori
Sunday, September 04, 2011


John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

I think Big Brother 13 houseguest Adam Poch is a Make-a-Wish Foundation kid. He's a Big Brother super fan who got the chance to be on the show and meet his favorite HG ever, Evel Dick, and now he gets to meet his dream girl, Beverly Hills 90210 star Tori Spelling. Maybe he has a rare disease that makes him age rapidly so he looks like a 40-year-oid, overweight metal head.

How else can you explain the fact that Big Brother 13 is giving him everything he wants, despite the fact that he doesn't really do anything in the house or add any value to the season?

The HoH Competition

Rachel gets off to an early leads and, since they only have 13 minutes to go through the donut glaze, it's a done deal from the start. They pretend that Adam is close, but he's not that close. The ever-obnoxious Rachel criticizes Kalia for sleeping all season and not working out, because then maybe she'd be stronger and could keep up. That would make sense if Jordan, who HAS been working out all season, didn't follow that up by saying she's too weak to do it. Obviously spending a couple weeks working out wasn't going to matter in this competition.

After winning, Rachel crows about how her win is for Brendon (ugh) and Jordan squawks about how she wants to make the final 2 with Rachel to prove that they beat the odds. Seriously? Jordan, you're not beating anything, you're just letting Rachel drag you to the end.

Pandora's Box: Tori Spelling and Mr. Pectacular

Rachel gets a Pandora's Box and sees Tori Spelling and a shopping spree. She debates whether to open it for a long time because she doesn't want to change the game, but in the end, she opens it. I wonder if the producers stepped in at any point to force her to open it. The feeds go down during this, so we don't know, but since Julie Chen promised a celebrity on Thursday's show, Rachel not opening it wasn't an option for the show.

When she opens it, she gets locked in a room with Mr. Pectacular, Jessie Godderz from Big Brother 10 and Big Brother 11. I like watching Rachel suffer, but I feel bad for Jessie, having to spend time with her.

Meanwhile, Tori Spelling is unleashed on the house and Adam has a virtual heart attack since he's been talking about how much he loves Donna Martin all season. He acts like a child, showing her all his things and obsessively freaking out over the fact that Tori Spelling is actually talking to him and kissing his duck. It's cute, but I feel awful for the other HGs, because this is just for Adam.

At the end, Adam, Porsche, Kalia and Jordan get a three-minute shopping spree in the backyard while Rachel has to watch and whine. This entire Pandora's Box seems designed solely for Adam, so I don't' really care about it.

The Nominations

During the episode, Rachel tells Kalia that it's a "travesty" that competitors like Brendon, Jeff and Daniele are in the jury house. She once again talks about how she wants a competitor to win, but then she realizes that it's better to have weak floaters like Adam and Jordan stick around because they're easier to beat. At least Rachel seems to acknowledge that all of her "anti-floater" talk is B.S.

Jordan tries to say that Kalia and Porsche sleep all the time, so they don't deserve to be at the end. Really? Who cares if someone sleeps all week since there's admittedly nothing to do in the Big Brother house. And Jordan is the last person who has any right to talk about who deserves to be in the finale given who bad she is at every single competition.

Rachel nominates Porsche and Kalia, claiming that they nominated her, so she's getting back at them. I'm sick and tired of using that as an excuse. First, Adam has NEVER been HoH, so he never even had the option of nominating Rachel. Second, in a wonderful bit of irony, Adam and Jordan are the only two people who've actually voted to evict Rachel. Porsche and Kalia have never done that.
