Tuesday Morning - MAJOR Shelly Rachel Game Talk
Wakey, Wakey, houseguests! It's time to entertain the live feeds viewers! No, no, really.. I mean it..
The feeds went to the BRB screen at 8:39am. As of 9am, we had 2 live bodies: Adam & Shelly... and 4 sleeping beauties: Kalia, Jordan, Porsche and Rachel.
Adam and Shelly, as co-noms, will not be talking any game. They're currently talking about sporting events. Adam finishes his cigarette at 9:09am, and tells Shelly he's going back to bed, complaining BB woke them too early. Adam crawls back into bed in the Candy Room, joining the lumps otherwise known as Rachel and Jordan..
Shelly tends to folding laundry in the backyard. While I truly appreciate Shelly's meticulous folding skills, I'll be saving my fingers for the arrival of some HGs into consciousness.
The good news is, you have time to dive into the flashback machine! :0)
9:35am 1 tidying Shelly and 5 lumps. Shelly's been the advocate for so many this season, with her MachiaShelly moves, but now that she needs it, there's no one to advocate on her behalf.
9:45am As I sit here watching Shelly not speak....
...and waiting for the lumpasauri to wake up, all I can think is thank God for Relax the Back and this chair! Without it, now 7 hours into my day, I'd already be in pain, and it's gonna be a Longgg day! If you haven't yet, you really ought to go like the Relax the Back facebook page. When they get to 5,000 likes, they're giving away a $6,000 massage chair. Yes, please! I just checked and they're currently at 3653 likes. We really ought to be able to knock out the less than 1400 today!
In the meantime...
For those of you who haven't gotten the live feeds yet, please check out this post: 20 Million Hits!! BB Dish Gives Back!! - There are important details to read there, but the gist of it is this... 10 people who sign up for the live feeds through the links on BBDish this week are going to be reimbursed (by me) for a month subscription! It's my way of saying thank you for helping BBDish reach this incredible milestone. :)
I also added a bunch of swank BB13 BBDish swag designed by Syn & C=Venus to our cafe press shop, so if you'd like to check that out, just click on the pic of the mug. :)
There are 4 different designs this season, on everything from flip flops to mugs to teddy bears, tshirts and tanks.
9:52am The Rachel has arisen from slumber!! Will she stay that way, or is this just a potty thing.. We'll soon see. 6 minutes later, she's brushed her teeth and she's putting her contacts in. we follow her into the storage room medicine cabinet.. Oh the excitement!
Rachel & Shelly
Chatter about Rachel's tummy ache.. She has terrible cramps right now. Talk turns to babies.. Shelly shares about her pregnancies. It's a friendly, quiet conversation..
Shelly: Do you ever get nauseous with your periods?
Rachel: mm hmm. I get that weird hormonal nauseous.
Talk turns to working out.. Shelly doesn't like the idea of working out in front of millions of people, and she's impressed with Rachel's 2x a day workouts..
Shelly goes in to get another cup of coffee, offering Rachel, who declines. Rachel goes crampy fetal while Shelly's inside.
Shelly's back in a flash, and talk turns to everyone's early bedtimes last night, Kalia's habit of sleeping up in HoH with Porsche every night, the round bed, beds in general... and snoring mates - Tony and Brendon both snore.
Feed 1 & 2
Shelly's had enough caffeine now.. She goes to work and begins pumping sunshine up Rachel's bum.. Complimenting her about everything on God's green earth.
After prepping Rachel with compliments Shelly goes in for the Adam kill... questioning his true abilities, bringing up his extreme knowledge of the game.. wondering if he's just hiding his true abilities til the end.
Feed 1 & 2
Shelly's now expressing great regret for her decision last week, likely in hopes Rachel will be moved and share this with Jordan... She then moves on to the idea that now she can appreciate how much this house effects people and how they really ought not be judged outside for their actions inside.
Shelly: What do you think you've learned most this season?
Rachel: To control my emotions.
Shelly: Really. That's awesome. That'll serve you well.
Rachel: To be more aware of what I'm doing before I act.
Shelly: Think before you act... Took me a long time to learn that, Rachel. Your spunk and your personality will get you far.
Rachel: Thanks. I hope it gets me something. I think it sucks that Brendon, Jeff and Daniele are in jury.. and that Brendon almost didn't make it to jury.
Shelly: You guys have the numbers in jury too.. You have people that are good swayers over there..
Rachel: Even as much as I had it with Daniele in this game..
Shelly: you would've liked to compete with her at the end of the game?
Rachel: Yeah. I would've loved to.
Shelly: I'd like to see you two in and Endurance Comp. Actually, I'd love to see you, Daniele, Janelle..
Rachel: Was Janelle good at endurance?
Shelly: I'd just like to see all the strongest women..
Rachel and Shelly share their bizarre BB dreams from last night... Rachel dreamt she missed the finale this season, so the prize went to Britney from last season. Shelly dreamt that Rachel said, I've made my decision, and then pushed her in the pool, saying "you're leaving, but you have to stay in the pool til thursday."
Shelly: It's interesting.. All those guys think they can beat you in the finals..
Rachel: I think they can too.
Shelly: You can't think that way, Rachel. You need to start lining up in your head all the things you've done. First of all, I think you'll have all the vet votes.
Rachel: mm, not all of em.
Shelly: I think once things simmer down, you will.. Just imagine if you won..
They indulge in a bit of what if Rachel wins fantasy...
Being the only conscious bodies in the house, the conversation continues. Throughout much of the last several minutes, Rachel's eyes are downcast. I think she's had enough... I'm wrong... Shelly offers to give up the next HoH to them, in order to avoid going to jury.
Shelly: My life is about my family...
Rachel: If that's true, I don't get why you're saying you'll give up the next HoH..
Shelly: When I say to Jordan and Rachel, in my speech out loud on Thursday, keep me in this, and I will work for you, if Kalia wins, they will vote me out. I do not want either of them to win. The stuff Kalia says makes me so mad.. She is a arrogant woman. I have a hard time with arrogance. When she says (this or that), I just want to throw up. And Porsche is a lovely young lady... I've really come to like her.. but she had 4 weels of zip.
Rachel: 4 weeks? This is week 9.
Shelly: She did win the last couple, but against so many less people.. and what decisions has she made to effect the game at all. Those 2 people have been told every move to make. Do you have someone telling you what to do? I certainly don't. I can't compete in the physical comps, but in the questions, i should be able to hold my own. And as far as Adam? He hasn't done jack! I know Brendon agrees with me.
Rachel: I know, Shelly.
Shelly: When you were up, I figured out how to get Lawon up and out.. I made a huge mistake, and I'm paying for it now.. but I have played the game... socially.. I have tried...
Rachel: I agree.
Shelly: I will never blame anyone for my issue with my back.. If what people say is true, Adam will not protect you and Jordan. I know that for a fact. The choice is completely yours. I will not be mean. When I give my speech on Thursday, I'm gonna say why I wanna stay in the game..
Rachel: Adam will go after me and Kalia.. correct?
Shelly: Correct. And Kalia has said over and over she will not go after Jordan.. and she will go to her with that. Porsche? I don't think she cares who she goes against. But they absolutely think it should be all new people. 100%.
Rachel: I worked just as hard as Adam to be here.. I went to open calls...
Shelly: His whole thing is there's absolutely no reason they should've brought vets back in the game.. It should've been all new people. Play the game. If he wants to say he's done better than me, bullsh*t. He's a great kid.. as a person.. but in the game, if you look at the game, he has absolutely let everyone hold his hand and tell him where to go.. and that kills me.. I did it too.. I led him.. But I don't think he deserves it, and I think at the end of the game for the fans, it would be a shame. I think it would be neat to see you and Jordan.. but at the same time, it would split the vet vote.
Rachel: Well, we don't care. We stick together no matter what.
Shelly: Absolutely. That's good. You at least know that you can ROCK and Endurance competition. You know that. You're golden. When it comes to the morph comp...
Rachel: I've never done that... I was the 1st juror.
Shelly: I always assume you made it to the end, cuz you were such a big character. (pause) The fact that I'm even sitting here... but you're like a study bug on the thing.. and I do think you should try to get on Survivor.
Rachel: hehehe. I think this is my reality show retirement. I'm too emotional.
Talk turns to Survivor... The sunshine pump is on full blast.
Shelly: I'd much rather stay here.. I can keep cleaning and doing the laundry. I don't wanna go there. I don't wanna sit there and wait...
Rachel: How do I know you're not gonna put me up..
Shelly: I told you!
Rachel: But, Shelly, girl.. Let's be level with each other.. Would you even listen to me, honestly, against Jordan?
Shelly: Of course I would.
Rachel: I think I would be 100% going home if I didn't win Veto this week. Don't you?
Shelly: With the people in here, probably, but that doesn't mean I was going to vote you out.. The week you were up, I spent 3 hours in the hammock getting her to put Lawon up. If I win HoH, Kalia and Porsche are going up, period.
Rachel: I think you played both sides of the house.. I think you've played a great game.. I think you've played the same style of game as Dr Will.. I think you have a great argument moving forward as playing the game... unlike other people.. Are you a competitor, not necessarily.. But are you playing the game? Absolutely. Even you sitting here talking to me right now, you're playing the game. At times, when Brendon left, I had to completely change my game. I've had to really work on a social game.. I've had to work on alliances and making game decisions.. I had to consider every option for staying here longer.. I would rather you be completely level with me... If I were to keep you, and I've been considering it.. And the reason I'm considering it, is Kalia and Porsche are so against you.. and I have to ask myself why they're suddenly so pro Adam.. Jordan, Kalia and Porsche all have strengths and weaknesses.. This decision is very big.. You can do whatever you want.. You can twist words.. Whatever.. The reason I couldn't keep Daniele is because I told her you can't tell Shelly.. You have til 5 o clock tomorrow.. but you can't tell anyone, and she went straight to you and told you.
**Knew it! As soon as it happened.
Shelly: Wow. Wow...
Rachel: I watch how people play this game..
It's now 11:15am, and this conversation is ongoing, but my head is spinning... Rachel is Still going at 11:30am. If you're missing this live, you must watch it on flashback. Seriously. Spark up your feeds, folks!!
Rachel wraps up her 15 minute speech to Shelly telling her she's been one of the best players this season, and why.. Now it's Shelly's turn. She says she's beyond flattered by Rachel's opinion of her but she really can't take credit for all that... And Shelly launches into part 2... She's going full throttle now.
Still on Feeds 1 & 2
Rachel & Shelly
Shelly: Rachel you've called out my game completely. You know my game. My question is, if we get to 4, will you guys take me to 3? I would hate to go out at 3, but..
Rachel: The biggest decision is, we need to make sure we have, and I'm sure Kalia and Porsche have said this to you too.
Shelly: They have. Kalia has promised me her vote.
Rachel: She's lying to you. They've said they want to vote how we vote.
Shelly: The bottom line is, you figured out my game the 2nd week.. I'm not going to fool you..
Rachel: I don't want to be made a fool of..
Shelly: I will not make a fool of you.. Think of the 1st 3 weeks of the game, when I wanted to help you.. I honestly think I played a lot of people honestly... But my relationship out here with Brendon was not manipulative.. I enjoy the guy.. You guys had a deal with every newbie in the house.
Rachel: I actually didn't.. That's a big mistake I made...
They take a break so Shelly can grab smokes and Rachel a coffee.. Rachel makes a stop in the bathroom.. I silently will her to speak to us.. That's a no.
Rachel: So anyways. I have a lot of opinions about things..
Shelly: You're very intelligent about this game.
Rachel: Thank you. I've had to adapt. You know how you said everyone had deals with everyone? Well, Brendon and I didn't. Jeff and Jordan wanted final 6 with Kalia.. then you.. then.. There's been a lot of downfalls and a lot of bad moves made.. Now it's final 6 with Jordan or I and there's you and Adam in the middle. If it's me and Jordan, I don't know what would happen. I'd be happy for her if she won. If it was you and me, I don't know what would happen. If Kalia makes final 2? She'll win because the majority of the jury and Dani would sway them..
Shelly: I'm not promising anything. I've played a better game than Adam. I'm asking you to trust that.
Rachel: I'm still in the game, so I'm happy..
Shelly: But you can say you're happy Jeff's out of the game.
Rachel: Not really.. I would've loved to go head to head with Jeff. I would've loved to go head to head with Daniele.
Shelly: That's why you're so different in this game. You truly want to compete with the best. The thing is, there's no one left in this game that can compete with you.
Rachel: You've manipulated this entire game. I cannot play the game you play. And with the social aspect..
Shelly: i hate that you think I'm a manipulator.
Rachel: Not in a bad way. r Will was brilliant. You've done a great job. You've made it to final 6. If you make it to final 5, you'll make it to final 3..
Shelly: I'd be lying to you to say I don't wanna sit in the final 2 chairs.. but I also realize I'm gonna get there on this side of the street.. Plus, I will throw up... (if someone unnamed makes it) This has been a very odd season.. I do not mean this disrespectfully, but here's some heroes, here's some zeroes.. I can't compete with you on certain levels.. I can't play Dick's game. Imagine what went through our minds when you 6 walked in... it was horrible.. I was like.. I knew the newbies didn't have a clue.. I had to go to the people who knew the game...
Rachel: You made great moves Shelly. The thing is, you're playing the game, but you're playing it differently... and I have to understand that, and I have to respect it..
Adam comes outside..
Shelly: And you railed.. and the Veto.. we didn't have a chance.. You gotta see the writing on the wall. There's holding onto a dream and there's holding onto reality.. and the people who held onto the dream aren't here anymore.
Rachel: We almost have to align with competitors, because we're the big bunch of targets.. That's how we have to play the game. We don't have the luxury of just being social.. That's why I told Kalia when she was the 1st newbie to win HoH, I respect that.. and it's a tough job..
Shelly: The thing I've enjoyed most this week is manipulating Kalia and Porsche.. I will never vote for either of them.
Rachel: They've been taught by one of the best. If Daniele wouldn't have coached them, would they be lost puppies? And Daniele went out.
Shelly: And you need to send her comrades to her.
Rachel: Thinking about last summer, as much as I couldn't stand them winning, the Brigade actually played a great game. They had a secret alliance.. They let Matt take all the heat.. They used people to come after Brendon and I...
Shelly: And they played Britney like a fiddle..
Rachel: They played all their people like fiddles.. And in the end, Hayden won every comp he had to win.. They played a great game. Playing this game again, I respect the moves they made.. and I see exactly where Ragan and I went wrong..
12:07pm Still going... Adam is still there.. He hasn't spoken, but he's definitely game talk blocking at the moment...
12:09pm Adam goes back inside without a word. He heads straight into Jordan in the bathroom.. on feeds 3 & 4.. Rachel and Shelly are still going on 1 & 2. Pick a feed, any feed...
Adam: They've been out there for a while together. I just want you to know.. I told you.. If you guys keep me, I will protect you.. I'm with you til final 4..
Jordan: I just wanna make sure you're not gonna get rid of Rachel. I've already lost Jeff. I can't lose Rachel.
Adam: I'm sorry I'm nervous, but I know how good Shelly can be. I don't know if she's saying I can do this for you..
Jordan: She's already promised us everything... Rachel knows.. She's just listening to it. I'm glad you came to me.
Adam: You know how paranoia works in this house.
Jordan: I would tell you, Adam.. During that apology? She was talking all crap about Rachel.. I don't know why it bothers me so much.. Just because Jeff couldn't do anything.. I guess this is my revenge. Trust me, You're the last person Jeff or Brendon wants to see.
Adam: Well, they don't wanna see you or Rachel either..
Jordan: You're good. Don't worry.
***What do you guys think?
OK.. It's 12:20pm BBT... The conversation between Rachel and Shelly continues in the backyard, but at the moment, they're talking about HGs gone by.. Dominic at the moment.
Adam plunks himself on the couch between the 2 of them making it very easy for me to say.. Faster than I can grab a screencap of the 3 of them, Shelly gets up and goes inside... Talk about comps and HGs gone by continues.
12:25pm BBT - Time for a break! My brain is melting and it needs a refresh! I'll be back in an hour.. with a new top post! :0) The HGs will not be taking a break. They never do! Please mind the critters. In the event anyone's head explodes, please comment in with the time and feed number so I can watch it on flashback. :)
12:27pm Shelly's back. lol. That's 3 times in and out in 4 minutes. Jordan comes outside...
