Big Brother 13 Recap: High Tension

August 28, 2011 06:55 PM by Ryan Haidet

The first 25 minutes of tonight’s episode of Big Brother 13 all focused on Jeff’s eviction last week.  So hop in your time machine folks, it’s time to see some fights before and after the big moment in which Jeff was cut loose from the house.  In addition to all that, there was also a Head of Household competition before Pandora’s Box returned to the game.  Read on to find out what else happened on tonight’s drama-filled episode!

Angry Feelings

All of the drama really started rolling because of Rachel.  She went to Jeff on the day of the live eviction and told him that Shelly said he threw the Power of Veto competition a few weeks back, which resulted in Brendon’s eviction.  Naturally, Jeff denied it even though it was completely true.

Next, we were shown a series of discussions that eventually caused an eruption between Jeff and Shelly.  As Adam and Jeff were talking about Shelly and her snake-like moves in the game, she stormed in and told them she was pissed off they were talking behind her back.  One thing was clear from this fight — Shelly is a bad liar.  Terrible.  Despite trying to convince Jeff that she’s been by his side the whole time, it didn’t seem believable one bit.  She then tried selling Adam out by saying he was guilty of strategizing against both he and Jordan.

One hour before the live eviction episode, another fight happened as Shelly explained to Jeff and Jordan that she was definitely discussing options in the game.  “We made a discussion, you (she pointed at Adam) included, to keep Dani in for the fact that everyone’s talking about you guys (Jeff and Jordan) getting to the end and no one having a chance.”  Jordan couldn’t believe any of it.  “I’m in shock,” she said in the Diary Room.  “I’m super disappointed.  I think she used our big hearts just to get her further in the game.  It hurts.”

I think the most interesting thing from this entire glance back at events before the live eviction is the fact that Jeff was talking about what went down in a series of Diary Room clips.  The producers definitely brought him back in the house to do these interviews after he was already voted out.  Didn’t that seem a tad weird to you?  He’s gone.  Be gone.

More Tears

Finally, 25 minutes into the episode, we were at the true starting point with new stuff — basically right where we left off last Thursday.  Jordan and Rachel were sobbing about Jeff’s eviction.  “I’m so stupid for trusting Shelly,” Jordan said to Rachel.  “I’m so stupid.”

Meanwhile, Shelly was also crying about what happened.  As Kalia and Porsche worked to convince her there was nothing wrong with the decision she made, Shelly felt guilty.

A few moments later, Jordan was talking about Shelly’s actions — and Shelly heard it all.  So she walked in the room and told Jordan she wanted to chat when they all calmed down a bit.  But Jordan wasn’t putting up with any of it, which sparked more tears from Shelly.  “As bad as I feel for you, I feel like shit, too,” Shelly shouted.  This is when Jordan erupted, rose to her feet and told Shelly she should feel bad.  “All y’all follow Daniele because y’all think she’s like the greatest,” Jordan yelled as Rachel pulled her to another room.  “Her season was four years ago, and who gives a (bleep) her dad is Dick.”

I’m sorry, but I think it’s hilarious Jordan is upset that people in the game were more excited to play with Daniele than herself and Jeff.  It’s a game, Jordan.

A New Head Of Household

For the Head of Household competition, each houseguest had to roll a ball along self-adjusting, pivoting path without it falling off too early.  After multiple rounds of single eliminations, Porsche won the power of HoH for the first time this summer.

Immediately after the competition was over, Rachel and Jordan cried more while the other side of the house celebrated.  “Day 55 will go down in history with me as the worst day ever,” Jordan said.  “I lose every competition and Jeff leaves the house.  I’ve cried so much, I can’t even cry anymore.”  Ready for the biggest shocker?  Adam said in the Diary Room that he was now going to flip sides and join with Porsche, Kalia and Shelly since they have the most power this week.

Pandora’s Box Returns!

When Porsche entered her HoH bedroom, she was thrilled to see that she faced Pandora’s Box.  As we know from previous seasons, opening Pandora’s Box can bring something really good or something terrible (or both).  Porsche was teased with $10,000, which was on the other side of the door.  Although she was very worried about potential consequences by opening the door for the money, temptation was too much.  She opened the door and read an envelope that told her she had just won $10,000, which she has to split with one other houseguest.  But there was more to her decision.  She was instructed to take the second envelope inside the room downstairs to read it to the other contestants.

“Houseguests, I have opened Pandora’s Box,” Porsche read.  “In doing so, I have unleashed the duo twist back on the house for one week.  All of the original duo rules apply.  Duos will be nominated as a pair.  And if the Veto is used, they will be removed from the block as a pair.  If the duo remains on the block, they’ll be forced to campaign against one another in order to stay in the house.  Everyone must now pick their partner.”  The new duos are Porsche and Kalia; Rachel and Jordan; Adam and Shelly.  Porsche immediately regretted her decision to take the temptation of Pandora’s Box.  Rachel was super excited since it gave her a new lease on life in the game.  Kalia was disappointed that Porsche was so stupid to open Pandora’s Box.

Who do you think Porsche will nominate for eviction?  Who are you hoping gets evicted this week?  Would you have opened Pandora’s Box?  Sound off and leave us a comment below!

    Happy Jeff is gone. he seems to have problems he needs to talk to someone about. I am worried about Jordan’s safety in future if she makes him angry.

    Pandora’s Box. Would I, hmmmmmmm? Probably not, since my objective, “IS!!!” to get the $500,000.00. And knowing that “ANYTHING!!!!!!” is possible, especially regarding, Big Brother. But, not to worry Porsche, you put up Rachel, and Jordon, and although they might win, and you take them off and both stay a bit longer, no worries. You then put up Shelly and Adam, and then, bye-bye Adam. Next week, you and your allies just “Get to Playing” as you all have and….”BAMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!” Now, just hope you and your aliance would not be as, ah, dumb, as one of you were tonight. Good-Luck to “ALL” you ladies. And hey, enjoy the, “GAME!!!”

    The only thing I can say is that this game is a reflection of the relationships you have in the real world. Its so sad to see someone like shelly who is simply a piece of Sh*@#. I am sorry for whoever has the misfortune of knowing someone as trashy as Shelly. And I hope sincerely that her daughter can find someone who she can see as an example for her future because Shelly is a liar who has proven to have no values, morals, or just general value as a human being.

    Shelley was not the only person Jordan was mad at. Jordan and Rachel were both pissed at Danielle because Jeff was voted out. Now personally, I cannot understand how Danielle personally put Jeff out but whatever. Jordan called Danielle a bitch and a whore. Sweet innocent little Jordan doesn’t seem so sweet anymore. Guess she has been with Jeff long enough that she picked up that terrible personality that he possesses. Jeff needs to be in an anger management class because anytime things do not go his way he goes into a rage. Glad I don’t have to put up with him.

    When Shelly walked into the room where Jordan was crying and talking with Rachel, it appeared to me she was deliberately attempting to provoke Jordan into slapping her, which would get her evicted from the show. Shelly knew Jordan was taking Jeff’s sudden eviction very badly and that was certainly not a moment for her to walk in and behave so defensively.

    Spikiie, you are wrong. If Jordan and Rachel veto themselves, and Adam and Shelly go up, Shelly is going home. The only voters will be Kalia, Rachel and Jordan. It’s pretty obvious who they will send packing.

    This show is so fake this year it stinks. All reality shows are getting so scripted it’s rediculous. Can’t wait for new season, hoping new shows are worth watching.
    I love Jeff and Jordan, but they are getting to be professional reality show stars too. Hope she wins again but doubt it. Shelly is a pig, porshe is a slut and kalis is horrible in every way. Adam is just stupid and Rachel is nuts so Jordan wins.
    I’m about done watching it ever again.

    Shelly is a worm, a liar and I really wonder if she is a woman, a very manly voice and walks like a man too. I bet she’s butch, she looks like it too. I hope she’s gone next. Loyalty makes people look good and ADAM HAS IT! shelly could take lessons.
