BB13:Wednesday Wake-up, August 24

Good Morning BB Dishers!

Since it's the last full day for last minute campaigning and shenanigans, we expect a lot of action on the live feeds today.

As it stands, no amount of pushing from Shelly or Porsche has swayed Adam into voting to keep Daniele, so we're expecting Daniele to actually do her own campaigning today.  Adam has dug his heels in about Daniele, so it will be interesting if she has any luck in that field. Daniele is planning on offering him an F2 deal, but what is the likelihood that Adam would trust it?

Interestingly, although Adam has fully disclosed Dani's pitch to Jeff, he has not outed Shelly. rather focusing on Rachel as his next target. These two mistakes have already bit him in the posterior, making him untrustworthy in Jeff and Jordan's eyes and ironically making Shelly, who has been the flip mastermind, move up in their alliance.

It's hard to know Adam's reasoning because he has told us himself that he doesn't trust Shelly. It might be that he is biding his time to see where the chips might fall after the next HoH, however, what he doesn't know is the Double Eviction is coming up and he might not get his chance.

Kalia, on the other hand, has taken Adam aside and pitched a Final 4 deal with her, Porsche, him and Shelly. This deal might be more appealing to Adam since he gets rid of Daniele and targets Rachel, both of whom he finds intimidating. With taking this deal, Adam does not only secure himself on both sides but possibly puts him in the top spot by the end of this week.

Honestly, the game never ends this season! For a comprehensive and amazing look, please read The Overnight Report which has been intricately put together by Carolyn!

What will the day bring? I don't know about you, but I can't wait!

8:34 AM BBT, Shelly finds the chess pieces in the storage room drawer; she quietly goes upstairs and replaces them! I wonder who will get blamed? Any bets?

9: 35 AM BBT, as Shelly sits outside, we can hear sawing in the background.

10: 16 AM BBT
Wakey, Wakey House Guests!

10:25 AM BBT
They're up!
F3 and 4
Shelly is working on Adam again..

Shelly: regardless of what side we have to win... IF we go the way we're going this week... One of us gets HoH this week... Do you have the balls to get rid of Jeff.... We have to split them up... It's hard for me to do this... I didn't come third or fourth...

Adam is saying making agreeable noises... but Shelly is doing most of the talking...

Shelly: In this game, there comes a time, you have to take off the personal relationships.
Adam: With Dani, putting us up she told me I'm safe and I know she told you the same. How can we both be safe when we're both on the block. I'm more scared of that than the other stuff.
Shelly: I understand. Three weeks ago I wanted to play it safe too....

She goes on a but more and Daniele comes out.

Shelly: I'm still talking to Adam about the plan... I'm not being a good salesman.
Daniele: It's not that you're not a good salesman... It's that he's not a good buyer... It's not the Adam is logical.... My dad won't think so... Why are you scared of me?
Adam: If we were both on the block, who would go home?
Daniele: Well since you're calling me out, it would have been you (Shelly).
Shelly: I don't think I would have been home.
Daniele: Anyway it's the past. What do you want me to do? My target was Brendon....

Daniele goes on a Rachel tangent.

Daniele: Why in god's name with Jeff.. him and Jordan telling me they wouldn't out me up or backdoor me... Why in god's name would I not go after him after that? My intentions would never be to go after you?
Shelly: What's your Final 3?
Daniele: We'll talk about that.. We can do final 4 with Porsche... But we need to get rid of Jeff.... I don't know why people are afraid of him? He's trying to play between him and Rachel like my dad.

She goes on a Jeff rant.

Shelly: After this week you have Double Eviction.... those people don't have your back. I wll go over with you what to do... I told Porsche that it doesn't matter if I'm here or not. They (J/J) don't have your back... Not even Kalia... I don't want to throw her under the bus... You need to make a move in this game.
Adam; The only thing I'm concerned is if Rachel wins HoH, she will get rid of me...
Daniele: How will you go? She will come after me... Okay who will she put up if I go?
Adam: Kalia and Porsche.
Daniele: She won't put up Porsche. She will need someone and she will go with Porsche...
Adam: If Jordan wins HoH...
Daniele: Impossible. She won't win HoH... If Jordan wins, she will probably put up me and Porsche...
Adam: If we don't get rid of Jeff... the DE is something usually fast...
Daniele: Fast but nothing physical.

Daniele is talking fast and non-stop... Human ears and fingers cannot keep up with her!

Daniele: Whatever deal you want I will stick to.
Adam; Let me tell you something else that bothered me. The whole deal to backdoor Jeff, you said you wanted to save me... save me to get rid of me?
Daniele: There was a final 4 deal..... but it was to keep Dominic... and the ting is the week before I was that Adam. He knows things...

Rachel comes out. Daniele gives her the death glare. The chit chat a bit.

11:00 AM BBT, Rachel continues to game-block by not leaving Adam's side. Daniele has not choice but to chatter away. Adam brings up his theory about the next HoH and we get palm trees. Rachel starts quizzing Adam in front of Daniele about the day. Daniele says, rolling her eyes, "Stop hurting your brain Adam. For no reason."  Shelly comes back out.

Daniele continues to give Rachel go-die stares but Rachel ignores them. They talk about what it's like outside the house and how different it is. Changing under the covers, showering naked, not having to use the washroom with so many other people.

Shelly: Not having to wash the toilet after so many use the bathroom.
Daniele: Or having to clean other people's dishes who never clean up after themselves. (Directed at Rachel who I have seen MANY times washing dishes btw.)

Rachel goes up to help Shelly with the laundry.

Daniele: Call her to the Diary Room, Big Brother.
Adam: That part about the dishes. Zing.
Daniele; I swear on my grandmother's life if you do this for me, I will owe you everything. I would never go back on something like that. And if you do it, it will throw them off for the HoH competition...

Rachel comes back and sits right next to Adam. Talk turns to working out. Daniele gets up  and goes inside.

Rachel: Sorry did I interrupt your conversation.
Adam: No she's... When she leaves tomorrow. You and I gotta stick together.
Rachel: Are you sure about it? Shake on it?
They do.
Adam: She's making good arguments to sway me.
Rachel: I don't know what she's saying.
Adam: You know. If you save me...
Rachel: Get rid of Rachel?

They chat a bit.

Rachel: I think the whole dynamic of the house will change (once she leaves).
Adam: It's the same logic. Who do I have the best chance going head to head with.
Rachel: Definitely.
Adam: Keep her to do the dirty work and then what do I have to stand on?
Rachel: Yeah. You're playing for second place..
Adam: Now breakfast time.

Adam goes back inside. Daniele sees him coming in and she goes inside too, no doubt to work on him, but all she can say is how disgusting Rachel is. I go outside to see what Shelly and Rachel are saying since we know Daniele has zero chance of changing Adam's mind.

11:21 AM BBT
(f 3 and 4)

Shelly and Rachel are talking about the votes.
Rachel: She will get a sympathy vote from Porsche.
Shelly: I know we mended out fences. Daniele said you hated my guts.
Rachel: She said that?
Shelly: I know it's not true... We have talked and I don't keep grudges.
Rachel: I sincerely apologize... I don't know what came over me.
Shelly: She said in front of me that her plan was to keep Adam. (When she and Adam were on the block.)  She was working Adam.
Rachel: She was working both of you.
Shelly: That was a weird way to work me..

Talk turns to the arguments in the house.

Rachel: I don't understand why Daniele and her crew blame everything on me.
Shelly: Because they think you're an easy target... But you've handled it beautifully..
Rachel: Thank you.
Shelly: They will come around when she's gone... Kalia has already apologized to Jordan... What I don't understand is how people can say those things and then expect things to be all hunky dory...

Checking in on the kitchen:
11:27 AM BBT
F1 and 2
Daniele is still pitching to Adam. She has thrown everything out including that her father would be his friend if he keeps her (*eye roll).

Daniele: Backdooring me is a p*ssy move.
Adam: Not to be rude but you had the chance to win the Veto.

She is focused now on how Jeff and Jordan are lying, how it will be hard to get rid of him etc.

11:31 AM BBT
(F3 and 4)
Shelly is telling Rachel about the time that Evel Dick told her that Cassi was backstabbing her to get the golden key. Rachel says that Daniele was trying to do the same thing with Jordan and Shelly/Kalia to put doubts in her mind about them. Shelly wonders if a lot of the stories were instigated by Daniele.

Rachel: Daniele wanted me to work with her after Brendon left, and as soon as he left, she was mean with me. Why would I want to work with her.
Shelly: I know your'e solid. I even told Jeff and Jordan you're more solid than even Adam... The Rachel you wanted people to see, you are now...
Rachel: Why thank you!

Shelly points out that her biggest stressor (sic) was Brendon in the game and now that he's gone and Rachel is being Rachel.

Shelly: The impression you leave in the end will be the impression you leave with Rachel. And for you it's a good thing. You're a good actress... You can play a lot of roles...
Rachel: I wear my emotions on my sleeve.

Shelly puts forth the idea that she's "worried" about Adam's vote this week. Rachel says that it would be a stupid move on his part to vote Daniele to stay.

Next on her agenda, Shelly brings up that Jeff and Jordan are almost guaranteed the game. Rachel says yes it would suck but their fate in the game is in their own hands. Shelly says that she can't win anything. Rachel gives her a pep talk.

11:39 AM BBT
(F 1 and 2)
Daniele is still pushing hard with Adam and he's trying desperately trying to get away. Eventually, Jeff comes downstairs and saves Adam., but not for long.

Daniele keeps going. I cannot transcribe as fast as Daniele is talking. She's getting more and more aggravated. Now she is denying that she wasn't behind Kalia putting Jeff up and takes full credit of keeping Adam off the block. (Adam knows Shelly was behind it all.)

11:52 AM BBT
Around the house.

  • Daniele is still going at it but doesn't seem to gaining any ground. She is talking too fast and looping around so you need to check it out on flashback.
  • Jeff, Rachel and Shelly are Jedi training.
  • Jeff is called to DR. (Picture time)
  • Everyone is getting up for the pictures.
  • Rachel and Shelly are still Jedi training outside.
12:12 PM BBT
  • They're all getting ready for the pictures.
  • Feeds switch to Porsche and Kalia are wondering how the chess pieces got back.
  • Feeds switch to Shelly and Jordan. Shelly is telling how she found the chess pieces but she doesn't want to tell anyone because she doesn't want to be blamed for it. She says they weren't there a couple of days ago. Shelly: Why can't I find the power? I find the chess pieces. Shelly tells Jordan that Porsche put the Brendon's duck behind the tank in HoH.
*Skippy isn't being very cooperative with me. I'm trying to capture pics but he keeps switching feeds on me.

12: 31 PM BBT
  • Feeds switch to the backyard sofas where Jordan has joined Rachel. Jordan: I had a conversation with Adam....
  • And they switch to Kalia and Jordan in the Candy room. (Skippy. Seriously??) Porsche is explaining Daniele's attitude to Kalia. (*It looks like Porsche has given up hope that Daniele will be staying and is now cementing her relationship with Kalia.
  • The feeds follow them to the kitchen. Jeff asks them if they want to outside to take pictures with Daniele so she won't feel awkward.
  • Feeds switch again to Jordan who is telling Rachel about her talk with Adam who cemented his commitment to their side. She doesn't want Rachel to worry about Adam. Rachel says she's talk to Shelly and Adam and feels better about them.
  • Adam joins them. He has his smoke with some chit chat.
  • Rachel and Jordan chit chat pleasantly.
  • Jeff joins them. Jordan says that Daniele was asking everyone except her if they would lay out.
  • Rachel tells them that Daniele was in the backyard with Adam and Shelly. When Rachel tried talking to her, she wouldn't and then when Adam went inside, Daniele went inside.

Jeff: One more day... I don't care... I gave Porsche the camera and they can take pictures.
Rachel: Obviously, they came after us. And when we do it, they get pissed off.
Jeff: She tried to backdoor me and you stopped here.
Rachel: When she was in power, she got rid of Brendon twice. When her best friend was in power, she put us up.

They wonder if Daniele will go out classy. Rachel tells them they made Pajama Jam Membership Cards. She finds it hilarious.

Adam, Porsche and Kalia join them. They take more pictures.

12:54 PM BBT
Jeff, Jordan, Rachel and Adam are chatting about the Bible and their favorite parts. Adam isn't participating in this obvi. Chit chat is pleasant with Jordan and Rachel with Jeff not saying much, after Adam goes inside.

1:00PM BBT
Porsche is working on Adam again to keep Daniele.

*Stay tuned! Carolyn is working on the afternoon post to be published soon!

**Holy Snickerdoodles! They never stop this season!!! It's hard to keep up with them when they get going! You really need the feeds! Here's your chance: 3 day free trial!

UGH, I'm so over Dani! Seriously! Literally!

She's so whiny, any all the "people are afraid of making moves" bull crap - hey Dani, just because they're not making the move you want them to make doesn't mean they aren't making moves.

Jeff is not a bully, he's strong spoken...but again, just because you don't want to hear what is being said does not mean that it's bullying. If anyone in this house is bullying it's Dani - to Adam.

Why would any of the newbies think keeping all four of the remaining vets would help a newbie win?

I would love to see Adam just stand up to Dani and say that it's not going to happen, and he doesn't want to listen to her bully him anymore. That would win Adam a vote from me.

Blogger Grendon said...

Shelly is telling Adam it's time to seperate the men from the boys. I guess that would make Adam a boy since Shelly's a dude.

When has Dani ever gotten out of bed so early? Rachel-go outside NOW!!!

Dani just said you have to piss people off in this game. Go ahead Adam-piss Dani off.

And once again, using the ED card to bully, threaten and intimidate Adam. Hmmm, seems to me that some bullys come in small packages. Dani really needs to stop pulling ED into the game. It's pathetic and somewhat disgusting. She has made it abundantly clear that she does not care, nor does she have any respect for ED's opinions so why in the hell-o should Adam care what ED thinks of him.

Another hard sell-It's Adam's chance to go down as being remembered for making one of the biggest game moves ever by getting out Jeff. Since Dani's BB fame surpasses Jeff's, I think standing up to her and voting her arse out is a HUGE game move.

Taking the game away and making it completely personal-If Dani stays in the house I'll be fine. But I hope she gets aproximately 12 minutes to celebrate and then gets kicked out on her arse for the DE. If she thinks Kalia's getting on her nerves now, I wonder how she'll enjoy sharing a cab to the jury house.

Very sorry I forgot to say good afternoon. Dani has become so incredibly unlikeable to me that she got me all riled up.

Gah! I swear I always post two seconds before a new thread opens. Let's try this again...

I get the feeling that Adam is wavering between Team Jeff and Team Daniele because, if he had his druthers, BOTH would be evicted sooner than later. I know his supposed focus is on Rachel but I doubt he'd cry if Jeff goes first.

For someone in Adam's position, that's smart. More than anything, the guy knows how to take emotion away and play strategically. He loves Dani and Jeff but he knows they're massive roadblocks.

I really think he'll consider the four person newbie alliance (as he should.)

The only thing that bums me out is Dani saying she wouldn't vote for him. He's made moves. He's just not so "obvi" about it.

Blogger Patti Z said...

I doubt that Adam is going to get over Dani's half-truths, so looks like Dani's last day in the house to me. However, Adam may have liked the same deal coming from Kalia. I fear that Rachel, Jeff and Jordan have their work cut out for them with 4 against 3. Oh, but wait, only one of the 4 has won anything. Tomorrow night is going to be awesome. I'll be a nervous wreck.

Hello all,

It would make no sense for Adam to keep Dani in the game. If Dani stays, who is going to take her out? Especially with the double eviction, Jeff can't play. Once Dani gets Jeff out, there are no really great competitors in the game. Rachel may be able to do it. But I think, if Dani stays, she basically walks to the final 2 and wins the game. And as far as her promises are concerned, that is a joke! She has said numerous times, she will do whatever it takes to win.

Adam would do better with the final 4 newbie alliance. Or even sticking with Jeff and Jordan and Shelly for the final 4 than keeping Dani in the game. If Dani stays, everyone might as well self evict and BB just hand her the money.

Here's to Adam feeling more confident in Kalia's offer and still voting to evict Dani ... He will be under some pressure to flip from those two, though .. heaven help him ...

Blogger Grendon said...


From earlier-Dani wasn't mean to people when they were on the block during her HOH because the people on the block handled it better. Even Brendon. (Gawd I hate saying anything remotely nice about that guy.)

Anyways, Dani took to the have not room after her nomination and people were trying to give her some space because they knew she was mad, sad, upset, etc. It was after she starting moping around the house, slamming doors, making snide comments and giving people death stares that they started treating her mean.

Actually Jeff isn't even treating her mean-he's just trying not to acknowledge her existence. As far as anything mean they have said behind her back-have you not been listening to Dani for the last, well pretty much the entire game.

Blogger johnny5 said...

If making it to final 4 was as simple as they keep telling Adam it is, then he would be stupid not to join the group of wacky girls who dont trust him at all. Fortunately its not that easy
He'll take Kalia's deal, just in case her or Porsche wins the next HOH. Shelly wants Adam to put jeff up cause she won't do it, so she is throwing HOH. Kalia told Adam he doesn't have to let Jeff know he's flipped. so he'll throw HOH. So Kalia's 4 vs 1 idea is actually 2 vs 2 because like it or not Jordan counts. She won the whole game damit!

I don't understand what Rachel did to Dani to cause such venom and hatred in Dani? Was it being outed for trying to back door one of their alliance members? Seems to me she sent Rachel's fiance packing (twice), not the other way around, so WTF? I really don't see any reason other than mean-girl pettiness. Please send Dani home tomorrow, Adam. Please.

I hope Danielle goes because I would like to see Kalia without her. Sometimes I really like Kalia - she seems to have a lot of empathy, when she's not being encouraged to talk smack about people. Can't stand the singing, but that is a whole other issue ;)

Ultimately though I am on team rachel! I liked her last year, and I still like her this year. I have no idea why people hate her so much......

#1-I have seen Rachel do dishes as many times as I have seen Dani do them.

#2-If Rachel gets called to DR because Dani told them to call her, I might start hopping on board the conspiracy train.

#3-If Adam's still considering his options then more power to him. If his mind is made up-he should just go to HOH and hang with Jeff all day.

#4-Dani wants to know what's wrong with Rachel because she broke up her game-talk with Adam. Dani told Kalia and Porsche to glue themselves to people when she was HOH because she didn't want certain people talking game.

After Dani left in her overly dramatic way, Adam initiated game talk with Rachel and he shook Rachel's hand-something he would not do with Dani. I'm thinking that Adam's decision is indeed 'set in stone'.

Oh how the mighty Donato has fallen.

Great update Genie and Carolyn. Wow what a night in the BB house and what a start to the day.

Last night Dani was sitting their acting like a spoled brat. The self pitty trip she was on was just sicking. K>P>S falling into dani's trap of feeling sorry for her.

Shelly finding the chess piece should have made her stop and think but know she just put them back. Shelly being a bully when it comes to going after Adam for the vote for dani now too.

Dani has is using the Ed card to bully, intimidate and threaten Adam. She told everyone right upfront that she had not spoken to her dad in three years and it very clear she has no respect for him.

You can not believe a word that comes out of her mouth, she wants the money and does not care who she has to step on to get it.

Adam stand up to this spoiled brat and tell her the way it is. Why is BB letting her threaten, intimidate and bully like this.

Adam: No she's... When she leaves tomorrow. You and I gotta stick together.
Rachel: Are you sure about it? Shake on it?
They do.

You and I???

A couple of days I stated my reasons why I thought Adam should keep Dani. Since then, there have been a plethora of comments regarding his reasons to keep or evict Dani (more on the evict side). It has been really interesting, and I think there are good points for both arguments.

I don't think this one is an easy decision. After reading everyone's comments and thinking about it, I still think Adam should keep Dani.

For me, the big problem for Adam (and Shelly, and Rachel), is the JeJo pairing. First, there is no way that either of them will take anyone but each other to final two. Second, they are both very likable and would probably win against any of the remaining HG's in a final two scenario.

Although I think JeJo are nice people and I'd be happy to see either of them win, these are not the people that I would want to be in an alliance with if I wanted the 500K.

I think that if Adam goes with the SPK or SPD alliance, he has a way better shot at making final two and winning against any of them.

The reason that I'd rather be in an alliance with Dani over Kalia is that Dani would probably be the one to get Jeff (and Rachel) out the door. Shelly, Kalia, and Porsche haven't shown themselves to be strong enough in the comps and Adam hasn't shown himself to be strong enough either. Jeff will win any physical/strength comp hands down and Rachel is quite good at the quiz style comps.

If he is sitting next to Dani in final 2, would she be easy to beat? No. However, I think he has a better shot at beating Dani then JeJo. If he is sitting next to Dani, he'd have a reasonable chance of securing Brenchel and JeJo's votes due to their animosity towards Dani and that is all he'd need to win.

The odds of Adam sitting next to JeJo in final 2 if he sticks with their alliance is just too high for me to feel comfortable with it (if it was me making the decision).

Just MHO.

Cheers to all - great discussion!

I have to say I am loving Adam recently. He has such a cool head and never is hateful to people. Love, love, love that he reminded Dani she was not backdoored because she had a chance to play in the veto. He appears to be so loyal - that's what the Brigade had going for them, and they had the luxury of not being harassed by anyone to flip, because no one knew they were in an alliance!

Dani should campaign and she should campaign hard. But she needs to add some new information or she should have waited until today to start. When you don't give someone a second of peace and you keep repeating yourself over and over, it crosses from campaigning into hounding and borderline harrassing.

Sometimes if someone is wavering it's better to back off. If you keep at it non-stop you can talk your way out of the house. Especially when your main selling point is "I will do ANYthing."

Desperation does not breed honesty. It's hard for anyone to believe anything she says at this point even if she is telling the truth because she has become so incredibly desperate. It's actually getting a little sad watching her at this point.

On another note, has anyone else noticed how all the house guests waste water, especially Jordan when she shaves her legs in the tub? Just when I thought all the younger crowd were into this "green" concept.....

Any respect I had for Dani totally went down the drain. While she wasnt my favorite, she played an awesome game the past few weeks. BUt her attitude towards Rachel and others this week has been despicable. Seriously? Shes upset for the same treatment she gave to others? Remember how she was making fun of Rachel or Jordan crying? and now looks who's throwing a tantrum and giving people death stares.

I dont blame her for fighting to stay. Thats part of the game. But dont be so miserable because hun, its part of the game if you get backdoored!

P.S I'm really happy with my bb Rachel :) shes doing great and I hope she keeps it up! My ideal F4 Rachel, Adam and JeJo!!

Ok, so I liked Adam's patience and ability to walk away from the bashing ... Now I am coming to appreciate his quiet confidence in his own assessment of his position and his ability to listen to so much input yet keep it separate from himself.

He must be going totally bonkers from all the harrassment! Dani will send him toppling to the Kalia side of the fence without ever realizing that she's done herself in ...

Someone needs to step in and save him .. quickly

@ Patti Z ... I agree that Shelly's sudden empathy towards Rachel is shady. she's setting Rachel up and getting herself some much needed jedi training in the mix ...

One thing I forgot to say in my comment about why Adam should keep Dani (like I haven't blathered on enough), is the Rachel factor in the JeJo/S/A alliance.

Although I haven't heard JeJo explicitly say so, I am pretty sure they have made up their minds that Rachel is their final 3 should they get to choose. If I was them, I'd take Rachel all the way as I am sure both of them would beat Rachel hands down in a final two scenario.

So, Adam will have to win back to back HOH's and vetos to even get to final 3 with JeJo or JE/R or Jo/R. (I'm not really counting Shelly in all this as she doesn't seem to be that good at comps and I think all her duplicity may very well get her booted out in DE).

I just don't see Adam being strong enough in the comps to pull it off. He's only won one, and both Dani and Jeff threw it. Dani threw three cornholes in a row in that comp. I am pretty sure she could have won it if she wanted to.

When Kalia started playing last night and approached Adam with the idea of the 4 newbies vs. the 3 vets, I actually thought that was the best deal Adam and Shelly had been offered. They don't have to rock the boat with this eviction, they go into HOH pretending they are still in it with JJR, and if a newbie wins they are on the path to final 4.

This isn't what I'm hoping for. But it does make more sense than all of Dani's offers.

Now if the handshake with Rachel meant more than just 'our alliance has to stick together', say a secret final 2 maybe, then Adam is in great shape. One strong competitor gone-Dani. One to go-Jeff. And a secret final 2 deal that no one else would ever see coming.

Hi Genie and Caro and my fellow bbdishers,
I think that Rachel and Adam should form a F2 alliance and F4 with JeJo. Agree that no matter what their are taking each other to the F2, that gives them the best shot, that way Adam finds away to remain loyal to JeJo(they can't be upset if he doesn't take either of them) and he has a good chance of beating Rach for the gold. Plus Rach is a strong ally to have, so is Jeff, he cannot go wrong making that decision, this would also work out perfectly for Rach. Nobody else in that house can be trusted or is strong enough.

Happy Wed. to everyone - hope the tornados (on their way to me yikes) and the hurricanes and such stay far from all of you xox

I have been saying for days now that Adam is 100% voting Dani out. He hasn't told J&J about Shelly because he will need her for his 'new' alliance once Dani is gone. He will be the king of the newbies and if they can win comps, they will see the end without any vets. I've been very impressed with his calm, casual attitude. No one has any ammo against him to speak of and he's been amusing and entertaining, while still working his mind through to the end :)
Much as I love JJR right now - I think Adam in final two might be a given :)
I like it!

As of now, it looks like a done deal that Dani will be leaving tomorrow. If by some twist of fate Shelly should find herself in final 2, she will not be getting Dani's vote. As if Dani didn't have enough things to be pissy about Shelly went and found the chess pieces and ruined the good-bye speech Dani has been rehearsing for the last 2 days.

Adam needs to just attach himself to Jeff today, and tell Jeff not to leave him alone with Daniele because she won't shut up. This is beyond ridiculous! She isn't helping herself at all, I think the constant hammering at Adam will just send him further and further in the other direction. He has definitely gained an even higher respect from me. He refuses to belittle other people, even the ones he wants to get rid of (Rachel). I'm so proud of him!

What you say makes sense (as it usually does).

If Dani goes tomorrow (which she undoubtedly will), I think that Adam's only shot at the cash is to team up with Rachel.

Adam would most likely beat Rachel hands down in a final 2 scenario and Rachel is a strong enough competitor that she could get JeJo evicted.

So, if Adam teams up with Rachel, then I think he is making the right decision in evicting Dani. If he doesn't, I think he is playing for 2 or 3 place.

I guess the problem with Dani is he just can't trust her. She made her bed and now she's got to lie in it (in the jury house!).

Not a Rachel fan, but fair is fair and I know I've seen Rachel doing dishes multiple times on the tv episodes both this season and last season. I specifically remember an exchange with Cassi while Rachel was doing dishes.

Considering the TV episodes constitute less than 3 hours of an entire week, I think if we've seen her doing dishes on tv, she doesn't have a problem cleaning up after herself (and others).

It's just more of "Rachel is the root of all evil" from the Dani gang.

I'm completely on Dani's side. It seems that when the other side was not in power & Dani nominated people she was being personal. But now they're in power it's just "game play", when it's totally not. Jeff is bitter about being on the block & is lying about his deal with Dani. Jeff & Jordan was my favourite during their season especially since Jesse came in & was being mean and picking them off one bye one. Now it's the same thing with Jeff & he's doing exactly what Jesse did & somehow he's better. Oh and no one should talk bad about him and mess with his reputation. To say I can't stand those two now is not explaining my dislike for them enough. And Adam, he's is and idiot plane and simple. How is Dani stronger than Jeff is beyond my understanding. Kalia is also and idiot, when she had the HOH she could have sent out Rachel but instead she screwed one of her own & they lost a number. Porche I just don't know what her point in the game is besides knowing Jannelle-ok!! Shelly is lying to Kingdom come so if my girl Dani get's kicked out I hope Shelly wins. But i will no longer watch.

I've enjoyed reading the comments for and against keeping Dani, but here are my thoughts... Adam is actually in one of the best spots in the house right now. He is not either side's target, and both sides want to work with him. No one doubts the two strongest competitors at this point are Dani and Jeff. Dani to me was always going to be the hardest one to get out, and Adam has the chance right now to send her home. Say for the sake of argument he keeps Dani. He will have shown his cards to JJR, and the only thing he gains is the possibility of help from Dani. Adam knows Dani will not hesitate to throw him under the bus to keep Kalia or Porsche (and Shelly for that matter). Let's look at Best and Worst case of each scenario:

Keeping Dani and flipping the House:
Best case if he keeps Dani - Someone in his new alliance wins HOH so he is safe for the next eviction, and they evict Jeff (or Rachael if Jeff wins Veto). Someone in his alliance wins HOH again, he still likely goes up with Rachael unless he's HOH. Best case scenario he gets one eviction of guaranteed safety and makes Final 6, but now has a target on his back from people not targeting him currently.

Worst Case if he keeps Dani - Rachael or Jordan win HOH and put up him and Dani. He's then immediately fighting his new "ally" to stay in the house. Say Dani then goes home and he survives... He's target #1 for the JJR alliance. Worst case he's evicted immediately after keeping Dani and doesn't even make Final 6.

Evicting Dani and Staying with the JJR Alliance for the time being:
Best Case if he evicts Dani - He stays in good standing with JJR. Kalia, Porsche, or Shelly wins HOH and put up Jeff and Rachael. He still has no blood on his hands. Jeff or Rachael goes home but if the one that stays wins the next HOH, he is still safe for another eviction. If the newbie alliance wins again, they send the remaining one home. Best case his 3 strongest competitors are out of the game (Dani, Rachael, and Jeff). He is in the Final 5 with Jordan, Shelly, Porsche, and Kalia.

Worst case if he evicts Dani: JJR wins HOH, and since he stuck with the alliance, JJR evicts Porsche or Kalia. JJR wins HOH again, and evicts the remaining one. He's then in the final 5 with Shelly, Jeff, Jordan, and Rachael. He's in a tough spot, but his fate is still in his own hands.

Looking at all the scenarios, I think Adam should (and is likley going to) evict Dani and bide his time as long as he can; because he knows getting rid of Dani almost guarantees him Final 5. The next HOH he can hope to flip the house. He plays to win if Racheal or Jordan are still in it, but throws it to one of the other newbies if he gets the chance. He skates to Final 5 and eliminates 3 of his biggest competitors if that happens. Now is not the time for Adam to make a strong move when it provides very little benefit only in the best case scenario.
