Good afternoon, BB Lovers! I hope you're having a wonderful Wednesday! If you've been away from the live feeds and/or the blog, you'll want to go and read GenieSea's beautifully crafted Morning Report straight away.
The HGs are off and running as soon as I sit down...
Adam & Porsche
Porsche: This place. These people. These things.
***Close, dear. No cigar.
Porsche: Obviously, I'm gonna play with whichever one stays, but I'd really prefer it to be Dani.
Adam: She makes some great arguments.
Porsche: I mean, if you're playing with Jeff and them..
Adam: I just see it as making me a bigger target.
Porsche: Numbers matter and Jeff will never put up Rachel. He told me. And, he knows that Jordan isn't a competitor, so he needs Rachel.. And she wont put up Jordan, cuz Jordan's her friend.
They hear Jeff and Shelly in the Kitchen, and end the conversation...
Porsche: Are we doing this group picture? Are you rounding the troops?
Jeff: Can you round your troops?
Jeff comes in the purple room and takes some pics of @MadameBroella. The HGs begin gathering at the dining table, waiting on Dani, who is putting some clothes on.
More HoH Pics - The Group Shot around the Table..
While most of the HGs are gathered outside chatting happily, Porsche and Dani are holed up in the kitchen for a couple minutes of privacy...
BB: Jeff, please come to the Diary Room.
Jordan's in the kitchen washing dishes. Jeff comes in from the backyard to go to the DR. HoH Tweets or Blog time.. Jordan says, Have fun, stupid! Porsche tells him to enjoy his tweets.
Rachel, Jordan, Porsche, Adam
Porsche: Maybe you're bloated.
Rachel: Oh, I'm definitely bloated.. But your legs don't usually get bigger when you're bloated, right? Just your tummy...
After a bit of body hair talk...
Rachel: i can't find my sunglasses.. The black pair or the brown..
Porsche: You're missing 2 pairs?
Rachel: 3! I lost one the 1st week.
Porsche: Dani said she's missing a pair too.
Rachel: And I'm still missing my puppy.
Porsche: I have not seen a stuffed puppy. I'm still hungry.. I don't wanna be hungry. When you're on slop, do you just find yourself thinking about food.
Rachel and Jordan commiserate... Then Porsche can't resist some subtle jabs in Rachel's direction about eating in front of them while they're on slop. Rachel's checking her butt for cellulite and asking Jordan and Porsche to tell her honestly.. They pronounce her cellulite free. Talk turns to Dani's body, which they all envy and admire. Unlike the rest of the girls, Dani has to fight to keep weight on... She's lost 5 lbs on slop this week.. Slop and Stress.
While the girls are outside chatting about not liking to be alone in the house, Adam's either studying or weighing his options..
With the amount of headshaking he's doing, I'm going with the latter...
***Out loud would be helpful, dear. No? OK.. let's have a look around the quad..
Around the house...
- Shelly, Jordan and Porsche are chatting about music on the couch.
- Adam's pensive in the purple room.
- Rachel's laying in the yard.
- Kalia's on a chaise in the shade.
- Jeff's either in the DR or locked in HoH with a computer...
- I'm not sure where Dan is right this second.
Porsche gets up to get a pickle.. I'm keeping an eye on her to see if she goes back to the purple room and... Yup! Straight away.. Back to work on Adam for Dani! New tactic...
Adam & Porsche
Porsche: You got to pick who we voted out all the last ones, so I'm sticking up for this one.
And so on...
Adam: Rachel? Honestly, she's the one I'm most afraid of after Dani.
Porsche: Seriously? She can't do anything. Dani is physical and she studies, and she knows the ins and outs of the games. I think a newbie 4some is cool, but then it's back to newbies vs vets.. and Kalia is super emotional..
Adam: Lemme interject.. Dani's in a position where her back's against the wall, and she's gonna say a lot of things.. She played with my life...
Adam goes back to when Dani put him and Shelly on the block, and what if the Brendon backdoor didn't work. Porsche continues her Keep Dani sales pitch to Adam. By 1:50pm, Porsche lets up and they start talking about music.
1:51pm Checking in the backyard on Feed 1, Shelly's talking with Jordan about Josie and punishments.. So.. chatter on all 4 feeds for the moment. Finger break! :) I'm listening with headphones on the quad.. There are dueling voices in my head.
Quad on Shelly & Jordan
BB: Kalia to the DR.
Shelly and Jordan are still chatting on the couch. Shelly's now moved on to her parents, whom she tells Jordan are her impetus for wanting to win the game, so she has the means to care for them... or provide for kids in college... or starving children somewhere.. or anything else she thinks will touch Jordan's soft heart.
Talk turns to internet shopping. Jordan's never bought anything online, for fear of theft. Shelly tells her she's spent thousands at itunes and that major sites are very secure..
All feeds still on Shelly & Jordan... The chatter has now moved on to an offensive teacher Shelly encountered... and talk naturally progresses to gender based roles.
Dani, Adam, Porsche
Dani has gotten in on the fight for her life with Adam... She jokingly threatens to hold his smokes hostage until he votes for her. At the moment, they're talking about stolen items in the house. Who it is, who it's not, who's most suspect, etc..
2:15 - Adam excuses himself to go for a smoke.. and a break from Campaign Dani 2011!
Porsche speaks quickly and privately to Dani, telling him the inconsistencies Adam pointed out regarding things Dani has said regarding himself and Shelly. Dani asks Porsche to come lay out with her.. Then briefly speaks to Kalia, asking her what she was doing in the Diary Room, which sends us to palms.
Jordan & Adam
Adam tells Jordan...
Adam: Still trying.. Still trying.. Not getting anywhere.. Still trying..
Jordan goes inside to use the restroom, leaving Adam in peace.
BB: Porsche, please put on your microphone.
**I go in search of some clandestine meeting, but nothing...
In the backyard, Adam is quoting Suicidal Tendencies, "How can you say what my best interest is? I went to your schools, I went to your churches, I went to your institutional learning facilities..." but Skippy doesn't catch it for quite a while, since he's not singing.
Kalia & Porsche
Have Not Room
Kalia: I had a talk with Adam last night...
****Kalia tells her the whole vets v newbies plan she brought up with Adam last night, and I covered extensively in the overnight report, near the end.
Kalia: This week, Jeff can't compete. Jordan's not gonna win, unless it's count to 5... etc.
***Kalia's talking too fast for human fingers... at least mine. Spark up your feeds, folks! She's pitching the same concept to Porsche that she already pitched to Adam.. Short Version: Newbies Unite. Rah Rah Rah!
2:40pm - Kalia and Porsche are still game talking on Feed 1 - If you're missing it, it's definitely a worthwhile flashback. Here's the deal. Porsche will go whichever way the wind blows. If Dani leaves, she'll be on team newbie with Kalia, but she's still working to keep Dani, however futile it may be at this point.
2:45pm - Still going.. Porsche's getting antsy. She starts adjusting her boobies. Kalia starts to wrap it up..
Kalia: (paraphrasing) It would be so easy for me to walk upstairs and make a deal with Jeff and Jordan, but I wont do it. It's too obvious. I want a newbie to win. Everyone expects them to wipe us out. I think Adam was receptive to it. Shelly said she was down..
They agree Shelly's sketchy..
Kalia: I really need to talk to Shelly and have the same conversation. We can't walk into the fast forward on separate side. If we walk in with 4, we won.
Porsche: I can't wait til we win HoH on Thursday.
Kalia: Also, please know that my HoH did not go the way I wanted it to go. I need another one to make up for it and get her out.. or him out.
**I believe her = Rachel and him = Jeff.
Kalia: We'll see what happens.. I have a good feeling about Thursday.. I have a good feeling about Adam..
Porsche; But he's not thinking anymore. He's not thinking for himself.
Kalia: I told him, you were the 1st person to say we needed to stick together, and look where we are, we've lost all of our friends.
Porsche: (paraphrasing) We need to keep playing together... not floating to power. It's dire that we win this HoH.
Kalia: I know. Trust me, I know.
Porsche: Ok, I have to get back outside to Dani. I promised I'd join her ages ago.
Kalia: I'm gonna take a nap now, so when everyone else takes a nap, I'm up.
Porsche passes through the kitchen area, and we hear..
Jeff: And I told Farah, he loves you, xoxo.
Feed 1 - Backyard. Shelly's in the pool. Dani's sprawled out on a chaise lounge.
Feed 3 - Adam, Rachel & Jordan are chatting in the kitchen.. Adam's joking around that Kruddy will be America's Favorite. He turns to study the wall for a minute, then he and Rachel start talking a little game.
Rachel: Think there'll be any more costumes?
Adam: I think this veto will be punishment/reward. There haven't been many punishments this year. I'm ready to take a chum bath..
Rachel: What would you do to stay in the game?
Adam: If I was on the block, I would do just about anything.
Rachel: Would you wax your back?
Adam: If I was on the block..
***Please o please o please, Ms Grodner!!!!!
Rachel and Adam continue with the "would you" list, but they had me at back waxing. Both agree giving up prize money is not an option.
This brings us to 3pm on feed 1, and we find ourselves outside on the couch with Jeff and Adam, discussing the punishment pov, and then moving on to their incorrect prediction that next week is the double eviction. Adam tells Jeff he pulled back the padded wall in the have not room, and you can see the Library...
Adam: Alright, back to the dungeon. I'm layin' in the purple room, studyin' the pictures.
Jeff: I'm gonna get my swim trunks on.
In they go.. Jordan and Rachel are both getting dressed to work out.
Jeff: Wanna come upstairs and watch me shave?
Feed 1 & 2
Bikinis and Game talk
Dani, Porsche & Shelly
Dani: We still have a day.
Shelly: I don't know how he said no this morning.
Dani: He can have my 1st born.
Porsche: You don't need to offer him that. You just need to be straightforward with him.
Dani: I have been, and he doesn't believe me.. even about stuff that other people have confirmed..
Dani's grown frustrated with Adam's resistance. She's impressing upon Shelly and Porsche the importance of keeping her to their longevity, as well as Adam's. Shelly tells Dani that's why she's so invested in keeping Dani. Dani says that she will persist with Adam. Shelly too.
Porsche: Me and Shelly are gonna be here no matter what, so he'll listen to us.
Dani: He keeps telling me that he can't trust me, and I'm like, how is one little me more threatening than the 3 of them.
Shelly: He's thinking path of least resistance, and he does not think he can get as far with us as he can with them.
3:17pm - Jordan and Rachel come outside to exercise, halting the game conversation...
Meanwhile on Feed 3 in the Candy Room, Adam's telling Jeff what Dani has said to him and where his doubts are. Jeff's getting all riled up.
Adam: I'm not thinking of wavering. Don't worry about that.
Jeff: I'm not worried. If you do it, I'm still here.
Adam recounts the conversation from this morning where he made Dani come out as having wanted Shelly out, had she not been able to get Brendon through the backdoor. Adam tells Jeff he's with him 100%, will not be keeping Dani... This conversation is ongoing, and if you'd like to view it on flashback, go to Feed 3 starting at 3:17pm.
Adam: I wanna go head to head and f'in win, and that's why I'm rolling with you.
Jeff: I know, dude. The plan's solid. I just can't wait til tomorrow, when she's out.
Adam: Let me win HoH. I talked to Rachel a bit this morning, and this week, we're safe with each other. I wanted her to hear it from me.. Even though I know what a nightmare she is.
Jeff: She's getting better.
Adam: As long as I'm on her side.
Jeff: Dude, but she's protecting both of us.
***Rachel, the human shield. At least they admit it.
This conversation is ongoing. Jeff's giving Adam hell about being nervous over a vote. "I can't wait for you to actually have to make a real decision in this game."
***Be careful what you wish for, Jeff.
Jeff and Adam wrap up their conversation and head out back for a smoke. This brings us to 3:30pm BBT, and it's time for a little blog break. aka... Feed me!
We'll see you back here at 7:50 pm eastern for the Wednesday Show Viewing Party!! And we'll be announcing the winner of the back rest from Relax the Back! :0) Be Here!
In the meantime, please watch the critters on the live feeds. They're really ornery today!
