'Big Brother': Eviction, Plus Shelly Faces Jeff in Jury House (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 8th 2011 12:48AM
'Big Brother'It was a packed hour of 'Big Brother' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS) on a special Wednesday eviction episode. Thursday night brings yet another eviction, in anticipation of next Wednesday's live finale, so from her on out, every moment counts.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

When we last left the Houseguests, Rachel had secured HOH and given the power back to the veterans. While Julie Chen might think this is "against all odds," that Pandora's Box the producers concocted had a lot to do with it, though Porsche certainly didn't have to open it.

The drama wasn't limited to the Big Brother house, as Shelly arrived at the Jury House and Jeff had some choice words for her. He never seemed to openly address his assertion that she had no chance of going to the final two with him or Jordan, which is obvious. That would have defeated his self-righteous anger.

Whether you agree with Shelly's move or not, she was clearly going to have to break up that couple at some point to have any chance of winning the game, and getting rid of Jeff is the no-brainer. Jordan simply cannot win challenges.

After winning HOH, Rachel followed expectations and put Porsche and Kalia up for elimination. Then, in the POV competition, Adam legitimately won, narrowly defeating a clearly shattered Porsche. But she wasn't nearly as shattered as Kalia.

How funny was it when Rachel was being smug about Kalia crying after losing a competition. How many competition losses have lead to Rachel crying? Remember her breakdown in the bushes?

Regardless, Adam was so firmly in the pockets of the veterans that he missed an opportunity to eliminate them and push the newbies to the end of the game. He kept the nominations the same and Rachel got to give the deciding vote to evict Kalia right to her face.

Then, in the HOH competition, the contestants had to remember messages the fortune teller said throughout the night, interrupting their sleep. This was the second memory-based competition in a row, and Adam knows how to pay attention. All those '90210' details he can recall were a hint that this must be his special power.

So Adam took HOH and must make quick decisions. Does he put up the veterans against one another and try to keep Porsche safe, or does he put her up against Jordan as a pawn? Whatever he decides, the POV will be more critical than ever as the winner of that will dictate not only who sits on the seat, but may well cast the only vote to evict.

What's Adam's best move at this point? His safest bet might be to put up Porsche and Jordan and hope Porsche can take herself off the block and put Rachel in her place. By not picking Rachel, there's a chance she won't fight quite as hard in the competition, giving Porsche a better chance.

But it really comes down to the POV winner, so Adam will likely do whatever the vets want him to do. If everything goes their way, then Rachel is surely to win the season. If she makes it to the end against Adam or Jordan, she should win the whole thing.

And since everyone believes Porsche didn't start playing until Day 55, Rachel would probably beat her in a vote as well. Depends who's there and how the next week goes, I guess. Tomorrow will tell us a lot.

Jeff shut up! It's a game and nothing personal. If you were in the same position as Shelly, you would have done the same thing! Who died and made you the boss of everyone on Big Brother? Honestly, I think most of the players were too weak to stand up against your Alliance. If Adam wins, then there is something wrong with how this game is played. If Jordan wins again, then there is definitely something wrong with this Reality Show and the producers need to review it. She is a terrible player and only follows Jeff. The only player this season with true guts is Danielle and unfortunately she is already out of the house.

jeff is a jerk and a not too bright one at that, jordan and brendon are dumb as a box of rocks, and rachel is just one whiney dyed hair gold digger who is counting on brendon not waking up until it is too late - too bad any of these useless folks got on again

Adam and Porche should be the final two..America hates Rachel and Jordan is sweet but has already floated to a win before. Adam needs to play his game now, save Porche, put up and boot Jordan and let the jury ignore Rachel. Rachel will only get votes from Brendan, Jeff and Jordan, so she has no business making it to the final two. Adam and Porche played the game without making enemies until the end. Let the jury deceided- and , PLEASE CBS, no more Brendan and Rachel or Jeff and Jordan.. Couples blow on this kind of game show! Especially these couples!

Not crazy about Shelly, but at least she got rid of that douche, Jeff. Now if only Pandora's Box hadn't been used to save Jordan (cause we know she could never save herself).

No, Jeff is not full of himself. He has every right to be upset with this terrible woman. I think he used alot more restraint than I would have. O.K., her game was lying, manipulation and disloyalty. That's Big Brother. But, Shelly became cruel. She was relishing the reactions of the people she betrayed. She and Dani had alot of fun thinking about how hurt Jeff and Jordan were going to be. She was looking forward to seeing their faces when they realized her betrayal. How was that good game? There are many incidents with this woman showing a warped side to her personality. She wanted to cut off the paw of Rachels stuffed puppy that she had stolen. She wanted to leave it on Rachel's pillow .My problem with Shelly? Her inner cruelty.

If Jordon make it to the final two, she will win. Even though she has already won a previous season, she is nice. I cannot think of Rachael winning over anyone who is left. She was not nice to anyone except Brendon.

Don't say that. I really don't want to imagine somebody who does absolutely *nothing* win twice. Ugh.

not ot worry, jordan cannot make it without jeff to tell her when to breathe and rachel will throw her under the bus at first opportunity - rachel is out for rachel only and to marry brendon before he wakes up and grows a brain
