Tonight’s episode of Big Brother 13 was sort of like Survivor: Redemption Island — the evicted houseguest had a shot at returning to the game by battling a previously booted player. While most of the episode surrounded that moment, another highlight came when Lawon kept bragging about his genius plan in which he asked to be evicted with the belief the twist would bring him back in the game with super powers. Who was evicted from the house? Lawon or Rachel? Who returned to the game? Read on to find out!
Lawon’s Foolish Idea
After volunteering to be nominated in Jeff’s place and asking (yes, asking!) to be evicted from the game, Lawon was bragging about his self-described bold move in the Diary Room. “Lawon is on the block and I love it!” he shouted. “Love it! If I do get voted out of the house, I have a 99 percent chance of coming back into the game with super powers. So take note, America. Lawon made the boldest move that anyone can do in the Big Brother house.”
Too bad there are no super powers, Lawon. Little did he know there was a second part to the twist — he would have to battle a previously evicted houseguest to re-enter the game.
To make things even worse, Lawon put on the crummiest act I’ve ever seen by pretending to be shocked Kalia put him on the chopping block. “I’m pissed and disappointed because I didn’t think I was gonna be put up,” he told a few of the houseguests. Although Lawon thought his acting was flawless, Shelly saw right through it. After asking him if he volunteered to be nominated, he denied it. But she wouldn’t let it go. So Shelly went upstairs to the Head of Household bedroom and asked Kalia straight up if Lawon volunteered. Kalia simply answered with a “yes.” D’oh! La-moron. Looks like your acting skills are La-worthless!
Rachel’s New Allies?
Hoping to be spared from elimination, Rachel approached Daniele and Kalia to ask for some sort of deal. Surprisingly, Daniele and Kalia seemed willing to work with their intended target. As part of their agreement, Kalia told Rachel not to blab her mouth about their discussion or she would call her end of the deal off for good. Then Rachel and Daniele agreed to act like they still hate each other since nobody would expect them to join forces.
But when she got in the Diary Room, Rachel said that Daniele and Kalia are going to face her wrath if they are stupid enough to keep her around for another week.
Moments later, in true Rachel style, she went downstairs to blab her mouth to Jordan and Shelly — but she spoke half truths to them. She kept on saying that she felt threatened by Kalia and Daniele and promised that neither of them offered her a deal.
On a personal note, Rachel, I can’t stand you. I hope you get home once this summer is over and read some of the comments my readers have posted on numerous articles about you and “your man.” Maybe it will teach you to change your attitude.
Daniele’s Second Thoughts
Shelly, who also has a big mouth, told Daniele almost everything Rachel had just spouted off about regarding their secret discussion. “This is unbelievable to me,” Daniele said in the Diary Room. She was astounded Rachel wasted no time in opening her lips to blab. Come on, Daniele. Why wouldn’t she? It’s Rachel we’re talking about here!
Ragan On Rachel
Ragan, who competed in the game with Rachel last season, stepped up to weigh in on her behavior this summer. Ragan, who hated Rachel in the house, revealed that they became great friends outside of the game. Huh? The guy who said everything about Rachel being fake — except for the pimples on her chin?!?! He’s even going to be a member of her wedding party! After giving us some funny Ragan-isms about Rachel’s actions, he then compared her to a serial killer at the end of a slasher movie — she may seem down and out, but she never is.
Live Eviction — With A Twist
When the votes were made, it was truly shocking — all six people who could cast a vocal ballot chose to evict Lawon. Even Daniele! As Lawon gave his goodbye hugs, host Julie Chen told everybody to stop what they were doing. She asked them to take a seat so she could explain the rest of the twist. “For the first time in the history of Big Brother, you will need to battle your way back,” she told Lawon. “Who will you be battling?” When Julie revealed one of the first four evicted players would be his opponent, Rachel’s jaw hit the floor.
Battle It Out
America voted for the entire week on which player they wanted to see return for the battle — Keith, Cassi, Dominic or Brendon. Julie said that more than two million votes were cast. With more than one million of those votes, America chose Brendon. Here’s when Rachel jumped up with loads of excitement like an idiot whack-a-mole. I truly thought this would be no contest with Dominic dominating the vote. Seriously, America! What are you thinking?!?! You really voted for Brendon?!?! More than one million votes?!?! I call bull. I don’t believe this vote one bit and I want CBS to prove it to us. It seems like they realize the potential for more drama with Brendon and Rachel back together. Anybody else agree with me? Doesn’t this all feel like a ratings scam? It sure does to me!
It would have been so much better had Rachel been evicted and then forced to battle Brendon. But knowing his knight-in-shining-armor-like (blech) ways, Brendon would have probably let her win.
For the challenge, 150 balls were dropped from above — each one featuring a houseguest’s name. The first player to get one ball for each of the 14 players (or the most after three minutes) and roll it up a ramp into a huge hole would re-enter the house. Think of it as a giant game of skee-ball with one hole.
This wasn’t even a contest. Brendon couldn’t have had it any easier. It was almost like Lawon was competing like he was born without arms. How hard is it to roll a ball up a ramp into a GIANT hole?!?! So much for super powers, Lawon. That’s what you get for asking to be evicted. As Rachel annoyingly rooted for Brendon on the sidelines, he whomped on Lawon.
Yes, you can all gag! Brendon is back in the house.
Are you disgusted that Brendon is back in the house? How dumb do you think Lawon is? Who do you think will win the next HoH? Who will that person nominate for eviction? Sound off and leave us a comment below!
