Friday Afternoon Before Nominations
Good afternoon, BB Lovers! Happy Friday! The HGs will be having Nominations today, so we've got quite a lot of game talk coming very soon on the live feeds. If this is your first time checking in to BBDish today, you'll want to get up to speed with GenieSeas's Fantastic Morning coverage in her post: Fried Day Morning.
For the moment at 1:25pm BBT... You're just in time for bikinis, board shorts and a giant elf!
The HGs are locked down outside, which is definitely preferable to being locked inside...
We've got Palm Trees... We're guessing that when the feeds return, we'll be seeing what the Have Nots got as their food choice from America. And then.. it's on to Nomination Meetings up in HoH with Daniele.
Feeds are back!! And they've got a nasty pile of Have Not Food on the Table. Seaweed and Sardines... Lawon's asking for crackers. Everyone else is repulsed. Adam and Jeff are clearing off the table.
Brendon's offering to roll some sushi with the seaweed.
Jeff & Jordan
Jordan: Daniele just came up to me and asked if I wanted to talk... Then she went upstairs.
***Jordan, relax, she has to, for production. The edit for the Sunday episode requires she speak to everyone in the HOH room.
Jeff goes inside. Shelly joins Jordan on the couch...
Shelly: We have enough to run those guys out.
Jordan: If she put up Brendon and Rachel, who would be better to go?
Shelly: I'd probably try to get rid of her.
Jordan: That's what I was thinking.
Shelly: She's emotional... He's a good player. Plus, if Daniele thinks I'm on her side, I can win next week and put her up.
Jordan: Rachel looks at me all sad..
Shelly: She told Porsche she has me..
Jordan: You know Rachel is gonna try to start cutting deals like crazy.
Shelly: I know they already have.
*** Deals that included keeping you and Jeff safe.
Meanwhile, inside the dining area, the sardine clean up continues. Rachel wants to take the seashells and decorate the Have Not Room.
Porsche's noticing the differences between California seaweed and Florida seaweed... and she's found a few bugs. Rachel and Porsche are digging on the packaged seaweed...
Rachel & Porsche
Rachel and Porsche are talking about Cassi, in terms of her relationship with Jordan... then they move on to mocking Kalia a bit.. Porsche tells Rachel to focus on Adam & Shelly in her talk with Daniele, inasmuch as both know the game far better than they let on and are truly the most dangerous players in the house.
Feed 1 & 2
Dani & Shelly
Dani's fresh out of the shower and getting dressed in the HoH bathroom...
Dani: So.. Where exactly do you stand right now?
Shelly: You know that.. I was good with the whole Dominic plan til Kalia, Lawon & Prosche made me nervous.
Dani: We're good.. but I was told that going into the comp, you were coming after me.
Shelly: That's Rachel.. She thinks we're all dumb.
Dani: I'm not an idiot.
Shelly: Me neither, and i know those 2 would throw anyone under the bus.
Dani: I just want to make sure that if I make a big move in this game, that I have support. If I do this, it's a huge risk, and it would benefit the whole house, but it would leave everyone safe but me.. I just want to make sure you have my back.. At least for right now.
Shelly: I have your back. I think we have the same targets in the long run. Who is your ultimate target this week?
Talk turns to Brendon and Rachel playing the integrity card, but having nothing to back it up.
Shelly: Those 2 will throw anyone under the bus to make it further.
Dani; Of course. They threw me under the bus.
Shelly: Who do you want on your side, because I can help with that. Tell me who you want to play with to get to the final 5 or 6.. Honesty plays big with me.. In your heart of heart, who do you want to play with.
Dani: I don't have that many options at this point.. Rachel was up here yesterday begging for a final 5 deal again... So you can screw me over? But, if one of them go home, I've got 3 people coming after me every week.
Shelly gets down to the business of rolling a bus over Brendon and Rachel and pushing for an alliance (or at least trust) with Jeff and Jordan.
Dani: I genuinely like you a lot.. I hope you know that.
Shelly: I do. You've told me the truth. You've apologized, which meant the world to me.. If you trust me and I trust you, I think we can go far. I will hold my own in those comps. Against you, you'll win, but I'll give it my all.
Dani: Rachel told me last night that everyone in the house was useless but them, and if I send one of them home this week, that's 3 votes I lose in jury.
Shelly: Let's be honest, is Rachel going to have the power to talk anyone into anything?
Dani: Good point, but... the jury is full of bitter people.. The thing of this game is it's sooo hard to trust people.. I have no one to trust in this game. The only time I've ever played was with my dad, and even if we don't get along..
Shelly: He's blood.
Shelly: Bottom line, you're going to have to trust someone... And this is your chance to prove yourself.. and quash the "riding daddy's coattails" nonsense.
Dani: My whole thing.. I'm not going to parade around.. If people want t come talk to me, great. I'm not going to tell people how to vote, and I'm not going to tell someone to throw a veto..
Shelly: Are you aware that I can pretty much tell Adam what to do? He is so nervous in the game. From the beginning.. with his diabetic and the medicine..
***And apparently, we're not supposed to know that... Palms, briefly.
Dani continues telling Shelly a bit too much...
***Dani, Shelly is not Kail. You cannot trust her. Truly.
Dani: I didn't come here to play couples therapy.
Shelly: So let's make this the ultimate singles game.
Shelly tries to appeal to her on an America's Favorite level. Dani says people hate her and she's ok with that.
Shelly: From America's side, if you get rid of Brendon or Rachel, you're gonna score tons of points there. Do you still think of her as a buddy?
Dani: Absolutely not.
Talk turns to the behavior of the vets during the comp, cheering on Shelly to the exclusion of everyone else... Shelly says it embarrassed her.
Shelly refocuses on Brendon and Rachel. Dani's game... This is ongoing... 2:52pm ***Hand Cramp!
Feed 1 & 2
Jeff & Jordan to HoH
We enter this well-timed, on the heels of Shelly, conversation in progress...
Dani: I had to win.. There was no doubt about that.. for making a big move that backfired and turned into a stupid move... So, if I keep you guys safe, all I'm asking for is 1 week of safety after this week.
Jeff: We would take that deal.
Talk turns to Rachel and Brendon and the tearful HoH meeting Rachel had with her last night...
Dani: It's hard, because I have most of the house against me.. and people play personal. Rachel threatened me yesterday, saying that if I send one person of the 4 of you home, I lose the game, and I'm like, this is a deal for me??
Jeff: Well, she's very emotional.. It's telephone after that. Rachel says one thing, then Porsche comes and says some4thing else.. I'm like wtf is going on? Porsche's going banana pancakes.. It's just a mess down there.
Dani: I feel like everything is finding out everything.. But I do have 1 question for you. Rachel said that if Shelly won the HoH, I was going up. Is that true?
Jeff: No. Everyone down there is flipping out, and I'm like, what are you worried about.. You extending the olive branch goes a long way..
Talk turns back to the personal aspect...
Jeff: I'm not up here to throw anyone under the bus.. I don't wanna know names.. but what do we say when we go downstairs.
Jordan: We don't know.
Dani: Tell em whatever.. That you were trying to see where my head was at...
Jeff: I'm not throwing them under the bus, cuz they did have my back.
Jordan: And if we get HoH next week, you're safe.
Jeff: I appreciate it.
Dani: Thanks for talking.. I saw your season and I didn't get the hype.. but now getting to know you, I see it.. and I would never want to attack you on a personal level.
Jeff: I do appreciate that..
They make their way out. Dani asks them to send Adam in, if they see him. (**I'm hoping he's in the bathroom for a few minutes. Yowza!)
No such luck.
Adam & Dani
He comes sliding in...
Dani: You look so happy. You are so happy. At least it's not a unitard.
Adam: Good segue... I'm happy to be here, and I want to be here, and I want ot be part of this game.
Dani: When it comes to you, I feel like we're on the same page, but there are parts of us that are afraid to trust each other.. My biggest thing with you is I do want you to be a part of the jury.. I know if you are there, you will vote fo rthe best player.
Dani: Rachel came up and threatened me yesterday... (tells him) I want you to be in the house. I have no intentions of getting you out of this house.
Dani: I would like to feel that that's reciprocated to some degree...
Talk turns to Dominic and the deal Brendon and Rachel originally had with him..
Dani: They told him to throw the veto, which I didn't find out about til right before the veto.. When they told him that, they wanted the power.. All this other stuff, to make a huge move, whatever..
Wrapping it up, Adam requests that if he's going up, he have the chance to fight for himself, and if he's not, that please can he not be last, because he'd like to turn someone else's key during the ceremony. Dani's smile shows how charmed she is by his BB love... She asks him for the same 1 week safety deal..
Adam: Definitely. It was an honor to work with your dad.. but he was like, you've gotta throw comps.. and after a couple days, I was like, that's not why I'm here.
The feeling between the two seems genuinely amicable..
Adam: If I'm here next week, you're not the target.
They hug goodbye.. Adam asks if he should send Brendon and Rachel up, and Dani says no, she's in no hurry for that conversation. (** thank you, dani.)
Kalia & Dani
Kalia: OK.. I came to cut a deal.
Dani: ok, great.
Kalia: (reports about Rachel) She started crying about something.. and Shelly was running to her aid.. The way I found out about it was Shelly was running around the house with a box of tissues..
Dani: (says she trusts Shelly)
Porsche enters asking to talk. Dani asks for 10 minutes.
Dani: I just find it funny. No one would talk to me, and now everyone wants to be my best friend.
The talk is centered on Shelly.. Dani has nagging doubts... Kalia is feeding them...
Dani: This thing with Shelly is, I feel like if she makes it to final 4 or 5, it'll be easy to take her out. I totally 100% trust you in this game, and we need to have an understanding that nothing comes between us.. especially these people.
***Since Kalia is not in danger, I'm saving my fingers for the next contestant on HoH Pre Nom Chat time.
3:36pm BBT -
Dani; I have a question for you, if it ever came down to a point where you had to put me or Jordan up on the block, would you be able to put Jordan up?
Kalia: I would. I would give her a heads up first, but I would..
Dani: Good, because I totally have your back, and I want to know that you have mine too...
Brendon, Rachel & Daniele
Brendon's calmly trying to make amends to keep himself off the block. I don't think it's going to work. If you'd like to catch the full conversation - Go to feed 1 at 3:43pm on flashback.
Dani explains why she wanted them to be a 4 some with her and Dominic... She saw Jeff as their biggest threat, and she thought the 4 of them could rule the house, week after week.
Brendon: I didn't know. I didn't know if you were being 100% truthful with us, or if you were trying to get us fighting...
Rachel: I understand what you're saying.. People think we're these crazy targets..
Brendon: All that comp crap aside.. You put me up this week, I go home, it's a game.. I still wanna hang out after. I'm sorry I got all caught up in it. I'm sorry for the personal attacks.
Rachel: I'm sorry too.
Brendon: But again, end of the day, I'm not gonna hold this against you..
Dani: I genuinely like you guys. I make jokes to you, and I feel like we have an understanding.. I don't feel negative towards you at all.
Rachel: Neither do we.
Brendon: On a game note, I don't know what you wanna do.. It' syour decision, obviously..
Rachel: Are you willing to make a deal with us?
Dani: I haen't been making deals with anyone. I'm in the worst position.. I tried to make a big move and it backfired. If I didn't win yesterday, there's no question that I'd be going on the block. No one would be talking to me.
Rachel: For me, personally, I wouldn't have gone after you.. I would have talked to you and tried to make a new deal with you.
Dani: But you say that after you made Dominic make a deal to send me home..
They deny.. saying it was just testing him...
Dani: The only things that hurt me.. was the things you said to him about me, just to hurt him.. I mean, we talked about it, so he knows, but.. We were really close.. We were each others go to to get away from the game.
Brendon: I'm sorry for that. I took it really personally. In all reality, I think it was jealousy on my part.. because I felt like you chose him over us. I'm sorry you lost your friend.
Dani: I even told Dominic, at that point.. You guys keeping him would've been the stupidest move ever... It's not personal, it's just game. I'm not here for vindication for PT.. I'm just here to make the best move for me.
Brendon: Obviously, from our standpoint, if you don't get rid of either one of us, your safe with us 100% next week...
Dani: mm hmm
Brendon: At the end of the day, I still believe you'd be closer to us than to Jeff and Jordan. You have a lot to think about. You know who you can kinda trust. You know who you can't trust at all.. and you've got Kalia on your side.
Dani: I was telling Rachel.. yesterday it was so evident that no one was cheering for me. I told PT before he left, I promise you, I'm going to win. There was no doubt in my mind, because I would be going home this week.. whether I had a shot at the veto or I didn't.
Brendon: I'm not gonna lie.. I was hoping the 5 of us could reunite somehow, and run the house...
Dani: I understand where you're coming from, but you have to understand.. when we have this conversation, and then the 4 of you were up here afterwards without me.. Perception is everything in the house...
Brendon: I didn't trust Kalia or Lawon..
Rachel: If you do choose to work with us, we 5 have a a much better chance of winning this game.
Brendon: I just have visions of a Kalia or a Lawon making it to the end, because we're all warring each other...
Rachel: And they all keep riding through the middle battling each other. And that's another reason going after Jeff so early was stupid. I just feel like we can all work together and get really far in this game. If we go to war, and Lawon and Kalia are the final 2, would you not think that that's unfortunate?
Dani: I don't know. I just don't know.
Brendon: You won 5 PoVs.. Had a floater who won 1 comp made it to final 2, that wouldn't have disappointed you?
Dani: Of course... But yesterday you said you would control the jury house against me...
Rachel: I said that yesterday, and you know I don't mean it. You know I'm not gonna vote like that if you're in the final 2. I understand that you're frustrated with me, and i understand why. I know what I did to you was messed up... If we could put that to the side and cross that bridge and move over it, we could really move forward and make great moves in this game.
Brendon: Obviously, we're all gonna have trust issues... We need to figure out how to make the best moves to move forward.. If we focus just on taking each other out, then all the floaters make it to the end.. And we're sitting in the jury house watching all the competitors walk in..
Rachel: We say that every single year. And over and over and over, the competitors knock each other out... Going now to war, when we're so close... If we work together now, we have a 50% chance of making it to final 2. And if you keep us, you're never a target over Brendon and I or Jeff and Jordan.
Dani: These people are scared of me too..
Brendon: We, the veterans, have a good chance of winning the majority of the games.. I promise you... If you keep us in this game, we are not going to break our word to you.
Rachel: And you know, the power shifts every week.. We all make mistakes.. We all hurt each other deeply... But moving forward, as fierce competitors, there's no reason we shouldn't work together.. There are fun things that are gonna happen in this game that we can all celebrate together... There's no reason for us to take each other out when there are people floating through this game. You might have a trust issue with me, but I promise you I can move forward.
Brendon: You can't play this game personally.. You never win playing for vengeance or playing with emotion... We need to stop, reevaluate..
***4:15pm - It's almost poetic. It's ongoing. Watch it on flashback. My left wrist need icing.
Daniele's listening. What does her face say to you?
Feeds 1 & 2
Porsche to HoH
Porsche: So then everyone was telling me that you were talking about how I knew Janelle and how you wanted to use that against me.. and then Kalia used it.. and i was hurt by that, because it was privileged information.
Porsche: It wasn't that I didn't want Dominic to stay, I just felt like for Adam, it was just such a huge thing for him to be here, because I would just feel bad if I didn't.. So I don't know what your opinions are of me..
Dani: I really was sincere about wanting to play this game with you. I'm not out for vindication.. I had to win this week, or I'd be going home. I'm sad PT's gone, but it is what it is...
Porsche: I felt bad about that too. When they asked about who I admired in the game it was you.. and I saw the similarities between Nick and PT.. I feel bad about it.. but this is our first week getting to play after the golden keys.. I'm not really on a side. I just wanna play as hard as I can and get as far as I can. I feel like I've competed really well.. and these games are really hard. I'm surprised Janelle did as well as she did.. I'm still here to play and I wanna play.. I know they said something about having the votes in jury and threatened you with that, and I'm not like that.. I admire you for coming up with the idea to backdoor Jeff.. I feel indebted to the veteran's side and to your dad for bringing me in (**Breathe, Porsche!!) And then like with Keith telling me, his whole plan was Keith's Angels...
*Seriously? Keith? Relevant to what exactly? Chill.
Porsche: What you think?
Dani: Where do you stand right now? I know you're really close to Rachel...
Porsche starts telling Dani that Rachel's one of the only people who would speak to her, when the rest of the house was shunning her... Kalia comes in to use the bathroom and talk turns to Dani's HoH Pics and her grandmother.
Feed 1 flips to the downstairs bathroom... Jeff's in the shower. Brendon's brushing his teeth..
Brendon: I have to look nice, in case I'm nominated today.
BB: Daniele, please come to the diary room.
4:42pm BBT - Psych. Feeds are back.. I though we'd be going for the Nomination Ceremony.. We return to Rachel fixing her hair and Jeff drying off in the shower stall...
4:43pm BBT - BRB Screen for a minute.. Then Jeff & Rachel regarding the HoH meeting...
Rachel: At least I said my 2 cents.. I'm just scared...
Jeff: She's not gonna pass up the opportunity. Or she'd be silly if she did. She's obviously got plans in her head.
Rachel: Yeah. I don't think we could say anything that's gonna change..
Jeff: Yeah. Just be at peace with it.
Rachel: I don't think it matters what anyone says to her.
4:47pm Porsche enters.
Porsche: I think its you guys.
Rachel: I know.
Porsche: She asked if I was friends with you..
4:47pm BBT - BRB Screen. Noms, Please... Show me some trivia screen... C'mon, Skippy.
4:52pm BBT - Trivia! Nominations are afoot! We'll open a new top post with the Nomination Spoiler and Aftermath when the feeds come back!
