    I'm glad that Rachel won, I believe she deserved it the most. The only strange thing was Adam believing that he would have won. Unless something happened that they didn't show, what was he smoking?

    I thought that Adam would have voted for Rachel, his vote for Porsche surprised me

    Agreed. I'm very happy for her. She busted her ass.

    Adam's vote surprised me...Shelly's too, for that matter.

    Adam hated Rachel. So did Shelly but I guess she saw past that and voted for the one that deserved to win.


    Glad Porsche didn't win.

    Biggest shocker was Rachel getting Shelly's vote - never thought I would see that happen!!!

    And you could see as soon as she got Shelly's vote, Rachel knew she won.

    Adam's vote surprised me a little - he said he would vote for the person who won the final HOH, but apparently changed his mind. Didn't matter anyway.

    Adam could have won against Porsche. He would have gotten Jeff/Jordan/Brendon/Rachel/Shelly's vote.

    Porsche was always playing for second place. She knew it - she kept saying so in the house.

    And Jeff winning AC was a no-brainer as well...

    If anyone changed my opinion of her was Rachel herself. Sure she's whiny, sure she's a drama queen, sure she's a PiTA, but she sure can kick some butt in competitions!

    But what I'm most surprised by was Adam voting for Porsche. Really dude?! What a a-hole! Dani is a bigger a-hole. She can't even put aside her feelings and vote for the person who earned it. Even Shelley saw it that way. Like Rachel, Dani changed my opinion of her...for the worse!

    WISH-TV in Indianapolis went blank for the last 30 minutes during Porsche's speech. They threw up some crappy music and a technical difficulties screen. It affected people on every carrier (DISH, Comcast, etc) Missed the final vote.

    Glad that Rachel beat Porsche. She played a much better game.

    Dani's comment about it being a good thing it wasn't a personality contest (against Rachel) was low class which is fitting for her. She is easy on the eyes but tough on the brain.

    I am sure this is killing Dani.

    The only thing that would have upset her more would be if Jeff or Jordan won.

    She really needs to take a pill...

    I actually thought that Shelly would vote for Rachel, but I thought Adam would too. So he makes that big plea to Rachel to keep him because he was with her the whole time, only to then not vote for her.

    Rachel KNEW she won as soon as Shelly's key was read. She KNEW she had 3 votes and just needed one more.

    I actually thought that Kalia might actually vote Rachel for better game play.

    I thought Rachel made a mistake picking Porsche, she deserved it... I hope this is the last we see of ED and his evil offspring...

    In hindsight, I don't think it mattered who she chose.

    No idea why Adam thought he would win if he was in the final.

    Adam spent the whole season saying that he'd vote for Rachel if she made it to the end. Shelly spent the whole season saying she would never vote for Rachel. Go figure.

    I enjoyed seeing the annoyance, discomfort, and pain on Dani's face the entire episode. Probably too much. Jeff winning America's Choice again was a tasty cherry on top of a Dani Hate Sundae.

    Yep, especially when Dick was dissing her game play. I thought her head was going to explode! :D

    People's...
    Of course she was much easier to be around once Brendon was gone. How much of that was a conscious decision to play her social game with Jordon's help and how much it was removing the sick Brachel dynamic we'll never know.

    WTF Kalia saying she bit her tongue. She talked 24/7. If word's weren't coming out, food was coming in!

    Looks like the Indianapolis CBS station lost power for 30 minutes. They will announce when they will rebroadcast this episode.


    I cracked up when Porsche was standing in the giant vat of butter after Rachel won the final HOH. She lowered her head, pouted, and mumbled "I am stuck in the butter". LOL

    So, was ED at the live finale? If so, I missed that part due to the power outage I mentioned above.

    Did he say why he left the game?

    I need to put an end to this myth that Rachel played the better game or "kicked but".

    1. Yes, she won 6 competitons compared to Porsche's 4. But one of those was the final HOH, which has always been a random guessing game that takes no skill or knowledge (I've never liked that they use that as the most important HOH each year). Plus, another comp she won was when they repeated an earlier competition that Rachel already showed she was the best at (hanging on the banana/Bredon)...Porsche didn't get to repeat the ball-on-the-snake competition. Porsche also didn't get to play in two weeks worth of challenges when she had the golden key, and she had 4 2nd place finishes. So, at best Rachel was no better at comps than Porsche.

    2. Rachel kept saying that she "came into the house with a huge target". Had Dick not left, and had Dani not switched sides, Rachel would have probably been the 5th target out of the 6 veterans. After her alliance became a foursome, she was the third target. Brendon was the newbies 1st target, and they had to use two HOHs to get rid of him. Then they went after Jeff. Rachel wasn't their target until there were only 6 people left in the house.

    4. She treated other HG's worse than Porsche. The way you act is part of the game...it affects who people think deserves $500k. Jordan won her season without hardly winning any comps, because she was nice.

    3. Rachel was helped by many of the "twists", as has been discussed already (Brendon coming back, the out of the ordinary punishment of Pandora's Box, repeating comps she already proven to have won...and of course Lawson volunteering to be nominated and evicted the week Rachel would have went home). Plus, she came into the house with a huge advantage...a partner she was already in a relationship with.

    With all the perception that Rachel played the better game, the final vote was only 4 to 3...and that was with Rachel having Brendon's automatic vote (he was basically voting to give himself a share of the money). Without that, she might not have even won. In fact, had it not been for Brendon being voted back into the house, he wouldn't have been on the jury...Lawson would have been the first jury member and Rachel probably would have lost.
