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!
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.
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!
