Friday Afternoon in the Big Brother 13 House
Good Afternoon, BB Lovers!! What a way to start a season! The BB13 HGs are off and running! If this is your first time on BBDish today, please check out GenieSea's comprehensive and excellent Morning Report, and have a gander at my Overnight Report as well...
At 2:12pm BBT, the feeds went to Trivia. They are picking PoV Players right now...
At 2:32pm BBT, the Feeds are Back!
Here's the last conversation that happened before the feeds cut away. I'll be continuing the updating after that...
2:03 PM BBT
Rachel is called to the DR.
Rachel: I have to win the PoV... We have to think about whether we want to change the nominations because of what happened.
They discuss whether they pick Adam or Shelly to host. Rachel leaves.
Brendon: Did they tell you if you will play in the PoV?
Dani: I'm doing jack sh*t... I'm sitting around for a month.
Dani fills Brendon in on her discussion with Dom and Cassi. Brendon is pushing for a Keith eviction and expresses that he doesn't trust Dom. Brendon wants Jordan to get Kalia on their side by showing her that Lawon is closer to more people. Dani says that they're all playing with their emotions. They want to keep strong people and evict the weaker ones.
Brendon: If we evict Keith and then get rid of Dom. Jeff and I will be the strongest males in the game right now...
Dani: I'm so glad you guys are here. Imagine if it were just me and my dad and he left. It would just be me sitting in a pool of sharks.
**this is a great strategy conversation to check out on FB.
2:12 PM BBT TRIVIA!!!
Have Not Room
Kalia & Keith
Kalia: What's our plan?
Keith: I gotta go for it. I can't trust that they'll keep me here if I don't win.
Kalia's trying to convince him he could be ok without a PoV win. As he is the target in the house at the moment, Kevin should go with his gut.
Everyone's hanging out, chatting... There's a new BB 13 HG Rule offered by Brendon: No matter how angry you get, there's no pouring out alcohol.
They're goofing around, pretending to be the PoV Host, in the style of a fight announcer...
Rachel & Daniele
Daniele: And the couple who's gonna play is... (imitating Rachel picking) Jeff and Jordan.
OK.. So the PoV players are.
Rachel, Keith, Porsche, Brendon, Jeff and Jordan. Adam is hosting.
Daniele: This whole situation blows.
Rachel: I know... You're taking it better than I took it.
Daniele: Stranger things have happened..
Rachel: Hopefully Jordan'll win this week, and it'll be a quiz..
People keep coming in and out, putting a stop to Rachel and Daniele's stealth whispering. Lawon is the current interloper.
Then Keith walks in, and Porsche... In and out. Cassi joins the group and the conversation moves firmly into the chatter zone.
2:59pm Brendon to DR.
Keith, Adam and Dominic
Keith is getting his ducks in a row, in case he doesn't win PoV. He's checking in with the guys, mending fences and trying to see who is and isn't still angry with him.
Adam: Look at it this way.. We won the 1st HoH, 'cause we got rid of one of them (referring to Dick). Look at this as the 2nd HoH..
Dominic moves into the following HoH.
Dominic: Why don't we backdoor Brendon and Rachel?
Porsche enters, and Dominic calls her over to ask who she'd put up if she wins HoH next week.
Porsche: Can you put up your own partner? Is that an option?
And she leaves.
Keith: I think she's mad. Lemme ask you, and I want you all to be 100% honest with me.. Do you think they're gonna vote to get me outta here?
Adam: They haven't talked to me about it.
Kalia enters. Keith asks her the same.. Kalia says she has no idea who she'd put up. She hasn't even thought about it.
Keith & Daniele
Keith: My partner wont even talk to me.
Daniele is nonplussed.
Keith: So I get punished for remaining loyal to... (the palmtrees...)
Keith: We just gotta win Veto, ok? Can we talk? She's like, no. She hopes they change the rules so she can nominate me next week. Lemme ask you something, if you were my partner..
Daniele: I'd self-evict.
Keith presses on. Dani's being polite, but her patience is wearing thin with the pointless conversation.
They're all anticipating the POV Comp, knowing it could start any minute. Dominic figures that's as good an excuse as any to get dressed for the day.
Rachel, Lawon, Kalia, Jeff, Jordan, Brendon...
Rachel thinks the POV will start around 5ish, so she wants to go eat something now. Cute conversation, learning about Kalia... and how Jordan is moody when she has her period. Jeff & Brendon join in and talk turns to the terminal velocity of pennies dropped from skyscrapers in NYC..
Have Not Room
Porsche & Keith
This conversation began about 10 minutes earlier... We have tears.
Porsche: Maybe you're different outside the house, but I think you are straight up all game play. Maybe youre intention wasn't to hurt me..
Keith: Absolutely not...
Porsche: If I turned on you, you wouldn't take it personally? If I was sitting there pointing fingers at you in front of all our alliance, you wouldn't take it personally? Like, my partner threw me under the bus..
Keith: Stop saying that.
Porsche: By trying to cover yourself... and we have to work together.. Because we're pairs and we're duos...
Keith: That's what Dani said. I've been trying to talk to you all day.
Porsche: You came and sat on my bed when everyone was in the room... I'm like, the only person not in here is Kalia, the other person he threw under the bus. It's a game, and I'm trying to think of it like you're thinking of it, but then we become a target and all this crazy sh*t starts happening... If it comes down to me and you on the block, you've already started your campaign against me. They see that Kalia's not that much of a threat.. They see that I have a good sense of self.. People who come out of here with a lot of haters, they don't get jobs and stuff.
Keith: Stop saying I betrayed you. I didn't.
Porsche: What do you call it then, if that wasn't betrayal.
Keith: Will you accept my apology?
Porsche: yeah, sure. I'm a forgive and forget kind of person. You didn't know me 5-6 days ago.. When you tell me you;d tell hem to vote you out? I see that you're campaigning against me.. That's part of the game... In my real life, I wouldn't be talking to you.
Keith: What does that mean?
Porsche: In my real life, if I felt like someone betrayed me, I wouldn't be talking to them..
**Good stuff. Spark up your feeds or catch it of flashback.
Porsche: I saw how Erika got played b Boogie. I'm not dumb. You know I wasn't super close with everybody, because I was spending most of my time with you, getting to know you.
Keith: You're digging way too far into this.
Keith: You need to understand this is a game, and once the Veto's over we'll strategize and plan...
The mood is lightening a bit... Porsche's enjoying making fun of him a bit.
Keith: That's not right, you going off on me like that.
Porsche: At least I'm not doing it in front of everybody.
Porsche is telling Keith that she just doesn't trust him...
Porsche: You've shown me your true colors by what you did last night. We all want ot be here to stay, but I wasn't going there yet.
Porsche: I play the game as it goes. I'm not thinking 10 steps ahead. Like when Dom asked who would I put up? I don't know.
Keith: I laughed when you said you'd put me up.
Porsche: I would. 100%. Because you're an untrustworthy person. I don't like you. I don't wanna be friends with you. Why would I wanna be friends with someone who's gonna do that to me. I'm being honest. I wasn't doing that to you. I was playing the game as it goes. Out of all the people in the house, I feel least closest to you...
Keith's making no headway whatsoever here... Incidentally, Keith is the stated target of Brendon and Jeff this week. They want him out because they see him as the stronger threat, and they'd prefer to be the strongest male competitors in the house... Rachel wants the house to come to a decision together, but she's fine with him going.
Keith, Adam, Shelly, Cassi
Shelly's telling Keith he did the right thing trying to apologize. Cassi excuses herself to go get some pickles.
Shelly: Don't feel bad you did the right thing. You need to get outside and have a nice workout. you'll feel better.
Adam: Problem is, next time you're outside is the PoV.
Keith: ♫ I've got to be meee... Hey, last night was the 1st time I slept with a blanket.
Shelly: What would your brother say?
Keith: hmm.. (paraphrasing) my whole family would tell me to focus.
Talk turns to the history of the room - Sauna... Workout...
Adam: It's Friday night 8:00 at home. People are out, having drinks...
***ahem. shut up. i'm just getting used to the cave.
Adam: You gotta let it go man.
Shelly: You got a big heart. Don't borrow pain that might not have been meant with the best intention.
Keith: Got it.
Shelly: You can take the girl out of the mean, but you probably can't take the mean out of the girl. You can try to soften her, but... I think the whole thing went south for you two when you tried to rub someone else's shoulders. That was the whole upsidedown moment. After 5 days. Man.. You've got the potion.
Keith: Did she tell you that?
Shelly: Yep. She said, if he did really like me, why would he be rubbing someone else's shoulders. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned...
Keith: Did they try to sway you?
Shelly: Nope. Not at all. Not for a second. I don't think one thing's changed. Just remember, there's a lot of days between now and next Thursday. You might look at someone funny and get kicked square in the head.
Continuing about the younger women in the house...
Shelly: It's all just competition for attention, affection. You just need to do whatever makes you feel good about it and confident. Don't let anybody else play your game. Oh, man. I just wanna go play... get outside...
Cassi & Lawon. Shelly joins.
Cassi: He's a ticking time bomb.
Keith's goose may be cooked. All the Alumni want him out, and it doesn't look like the Newbies are a united front.
Cassi: Me, you, him (Lawon) and Dom. We're the only sane ones. Kalia's not throwin anything out? She's not whispering anything in your ears?
Cassi says she feels close to Rachel...
Cassi: I like him as a person, but not in this house. What is he doin'? Showin' his penis? The only girls he hasn't hit on are the ones who are taken... Know who else I really like is Daniele. (knew it!) I was sitting there doing her makeup thinking I would really like to hang out with this girl, and not a second later, she said, I really like you.. I'd like to hang out with you after this.
Talk turns to a conversation someone started yesterday about backdooring... Lawon says, go ahead, I have the votes.
Lawon: You're my boo.
Cassi: Do you think I was meant to be born with a penis?
***Cassi, you just made the straight boys cry.
Dani & Shelly
Dani: I wish they'd turn my dad's pic black already. It's just weird.
Shelly: Do you wish you could talk to him?
Dani: Not really.. I just wish I knew what happened... What's going on... I can't believe the 1st eviction isn't til a week from now.
Shelly: I know.. We've been in here forever..
Dani: Forever... I would like to see Julie Chen.
Shelly: (looking at the doors) They've gotta be ready soon.
Jeff and Brendon come downstairs... Porsche's at the counter.. Lawon's there now too.. Chatter about the PoV Comp, Food, Smoking... Adam's rationalizing the lock down, because he's now saved 1 pack of cigarettes. And laughs...
Lawon: When you're at home and you see people in the house, you're like, why they actin so crazy? Now you know.
Brendon: Now you know.
***dinner break! must feed the blogger!
It's Game time in the Kitchen with most of the BB13 HGs...
Good times in the asylum.
