    It seems we've been missing a few episodes. I thought I'd get us back on track.

    I was hoping the humiltard would show off Jordan's assets a bit better!

    And I hate the back-to-back shows. They need to spread the shows out across the week like in years past.

    I don't even remember them showing her but I was half paying attention. I agree Wed/Thur sucks. I much preferred Tue/Thur.

    Agree on Wed/Thurs sucks. Tues/Thurs/Sun was much better.

    Jordan is awesome! She gives up the phone call which she really wanted so Shelly could talk to her family. And then she gets the humilitard and basically wears it in good humor.

    As I see it, if they can just get Adam to vote out Shelly, then Brandon stays. I think that is highly likely as Adam has a man-crush on Jeff.

    I thought from the dialog last night Jeff seemed to be leaning towards getting rid of Brendan. Although I don't follow the live feeds so maybe they've done some creative editing.

    If that does happen, Dani (and Kalia) deserves it. She could have made it 100% certain that at least 1 of the more powerful players inthe game (Brendan/Jeff/Rach) would go. I like her much more this season than her other season but she isn't a very good strategist.

    Dani would still be the primary target if Brendon leaves. She showed power too early, and there are too many evictions left for her to survive them all. I don't know if Kalia would survive long without Dani to tell her what to do.

    I like this season a lot right now. There are several ways the game could play out from here, so it might be interesting to watch things unfold.

    If Jordan gets to the final two without Jeff, I think she'll win again. She'd probably have Jeff, Shelly, Brendon, and Rachel's votes, and that's enough. I'm sure the other house guests know that also, so Jordan will probably be targeted soon.

    I don't buy that for a second. The reprecussions of voting out Brandon and leaving Rachel wouldn't make, in comparison nobody is going to care if they vote out Shelly.

    I understand but it's getting close to time to make a move and Brendan is more powerful than Shelly in regards to...well, everything.

    I guess I can see it both ways. Either way, and interesting night is coming.

    I think they have a good chance at keeping Brendon. Dani only has Porcha and Kalia for a sure vote. Dani's other sure vote to get Brendon out is Shelley, but she can't vote. Jeff, Jordan, Rachel, and Adam could vote out Shelley. Drama wise, I would love for Brendon to survive... it would drive Dani nuts!

    I think Jeff and Jordan will vote to keep Brendon. All they have to do to get rid of Brendon is to let Adam vote to evict him. That will set up a tie vote and Dani will cast the deciding vote. Both Jeff and Jordan have to keep Brendon and Rachel on their side for jury votes, so they have to at least pretend to support them.

    I think until they get rid of one of Danielle/Kalia/Porsche that J&J need Brachel around and they will try to get Adam to vote out Shelly.

    Does Shelly really beleive she didn't propose a final 3 with Brachel? Did she play so many angles that she doesn't even remember?

    I will have to watch last night's episode on-line. For the first time ever, my TiVo screwed up. I have Big Brother set as my #1 season pass but it recorded a much lower priority show instead. I always check on Sunday to make sure my top priorities will record & at that time, it was set to record it last night. No one else has access to my TiVo so no one could have changed it. Recording history said it wasn't recorded because another season pass had higher priority but it doesn't. Oh well, after all these years 1 screw up isn't bad at all since I have the on-line option.

    I always like when the producers play the clips of what a contestant claims they never said..fun stuff.

    Things are getting quite crazy for sure this year.

    Yeah, it was pretty damn hilarious when she was getting so adament about Rachel lying and her own moral code...and then cut to her proposing final 3 to B&R.

    I was hoping that someone would point out that she was the only one getting worked up when they were in the bedroom and summoned Porsche. It was great that Rachel and Porsche were calmly telling the facts and Shelly was getting all worked up.

    Something about Shelly's lips are disturbing - they look a bit sphincter-y. :D

    I don't think there is any way Rachel could give Jordan the money. There is no way her ego would let Jordan be a two time winner when she herself never won.

    I don't know that Shelly proposed a final three with R&B... the way they cut the conversation so that you can't hear the context really makes it tricky. I don't watch the Live Feeds, but do sometimes read stuff... so if someone does know anything, can you post it in spoils - or put it into the live feed one? 'Cause I'm confused.

    Based on the way that the show was edited/cut - it really sounded like she was reiterating something they'd said. More a confusion/clarification question, than a flat-out question. Just my take on it. I do not know. But, I can totally see B&R saying Shelly needs to vote out Jordan and they'll take her to final three - she repeats to clarify what they're actually asking of her/offering her - and then they decide (because they are never really listening to anyone else anyway) that she is the one who proposed the whole thing.

    I just really can't see Shelly *wanting* to join up with B&R over J&J. I can't see the reasoning for it. at. all.

    So, anyhow - just pondering, and thought I'd inquire here for any other feedback.

    I knew right when Shelly got put up that she was going to break down this week. It was awesome to watch her trying to back track through all the agreements she has made. Any body that thought she was a strong player can toss that out just like she did when she accepted the phone call and did not beg to keep the POV. Not like she would have ended up with it but there is that chance that Jeff would have not thrown the competition and Adam would not have won.

    If Jeff was smart he gains a better chance for another week by keeping Brendan this week. I don't believe dani, kahlia or porsche would not target him if they got into power again.

    There was no chance that Adam wouldn't take the veto at whatever point he left the competition. Shelly wasn't going to end up with the veto.

    It seeemed to me that she really believed she didn't have a final 3 deal with them. I was also wondering if she really forgot, or what.

    When Rachel accused her of saying they needed to vote Jordan out, was Rachel making that up? Was she out and out lying? I felt very confused. I loved how Brendan wouldn't stick up for her and say it was true.
