'Big Brother' Winner Rachel and the Zingbot Stop by 'The Talk' (VIDEO)

'Big Brother' winner Rachel Reilly on 'The Talk'Rachel Reilly won more competitions than any other contestant on this season of 'Big Brother' on her way to winning the entire competition. She made sure to remind the audience of 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS) of her stellar performance, and also brought the Zingbot along with her, much to the chagrin of Julie Chen.

Now that Reilly has won a half a million dollars, her plans for her wedding to fellow contestant Brendon Villegas have changed a bit. "Oh my gosh, it's going to be the dream wedding," she said. "He actually had told me that week, he said, 'If you win the final HOH, then I will vote for you because you earned it,' and I did! I won more competitions than anyone this summer."

Did Adam, Porsche or Rachel Win 'Big Brother 13'? (VIDEO)

'Big Brother' season finaleIt went by so fast. It seems like just yesterday Rachel was crying on 'Big Brother' (Wed., 9:30PM ET on CBS) and driving everyone at home and in the house crazy. And now here she is in the finale with probably the best chance of winning between the Final Three. But first, she has to win the last HOH competition!


It's been a while since we checked in with the Houseguests, and while we were away, Rachel walked away with the win in Round One of a three-part HOH competition. When it comes to simply hanging onto things, nobody seems able to touch her. Adam gave up quickly, while Porsche hung in there until she was about to hurl.

One More Out, Which Three Remain on 'Big Brother'? (VIDEO)

'Big Brother'On Wednesday's show, Kalia left the house, which left two veterans facing off against two newbies on 'Big Brother' (Thu., 9PM ET on CBS). Adam won the Head of Household competition, but it didn't really matter because the real power this week lay in the Veto competition.


When it came to decision time, Adam put up Porsche and Jordan, giving the reason that neither had yet to win the Power of Veto, so he was giving them the chance to take themselves off the block. Porsche promptly took him up on the offer, and suddenly the newbies found themselves again in power in this game.

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

'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.


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.

A Second Pandora's Box and Celebrity Guest Make for 'Big Brother' Fun (VIDEO)

'Big Brother 13'It was make or break for the veterans at this week's Head of Household competition on 'Big Brother' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS). When the live episode ended, it looked like Rachel and Adam were in the lead, with Porsche's ally Kalia bringing up the rear.


As we all probably expected, Rachel pulled out the victory and took control of the house officially for her and Jordan at this critical time in the game. So what we had to deal with this week was the newbies grovelling to Rachel, which had her giving that creepy smile with the dead eyes over and over again.

'Big Brother' Eviction, Jeff and Daniele's Arrival at Jury House (VIDEO)

'Big Brother 13' Jury HouseIn what could turn out to be the most important day in the 'Big Brother' (Thu., 9PM ET on CBS) house, it was down to Adam or Shelly for eviction. Porsche's greed absolutely saved the veterans when she forced the duo twist back into the competition for a week, and Rachel subsequently won the POV.


Rachel is a big threat in challenges anyway, so she was going to be difficult to get rid of anyway. Giving her the power to also save Jordan when there are only six people in the house is 'Big Brother' suicide. Especially with Porsche the outgoing HOH, because she's probably the strongest challenge competitor in the house besides Rachel, and she can't play.

Nominations, POV and Duos Wreak Havoc on 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

'Big Brother 13'Porsche and the newbies had the game in the bag when Porsche won HOH on 'Big Brother' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS). Put up Rachel and Jordan and then no matter what you can evict one of them. But then Porsche had to go and get greedy and open Pandora's Box.


As we know, this re-implemented the duos twist for one week, thus creating a solid unit out of Jordan and Rachel. Now all they needed to do was win the Power of Veto challenge and the producers couldn't have picked one better-suited for the Veterans.

Does the New HOH Open Pandora's Box on 'Big Brother'? (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 29th 2011 1:25AM
'Big Brother 13'In the last episode of 'Big Brother' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS), Kalia won Head of Household, but it would prove to be a short-lived victory as the show was doing a special week's worth of 'BB' in an hour. It led to Porsche winning Power of Veto and Jeff getting evicted. But then, there was another HOH competition.


This one utilized the snake balancing contraption they'd received earlier in the week. It was an interesting battle, with a first round to determine brackets, which saw Porsche toward the bottom and Jordan at the top. Then, you had to battle your way through the bracket. And it was here that Porsche really dominated, taking it from Jordan in the end.

Double Elimination Stuns Houseguests on 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

'Big Brother 13'That was exhausting! Julie Chen had warned us in advance that we'd be getting a full week of 'Big Brother' (Thu., 9PM ET on CBS) in one hour with this week's elimination episode, but the Houseguests had no idea it was coming. And it turned out to be one wild ride.

After this one, nothing is the same!


Coming into it, Big Jeff had successfully backdoored Daniele onto the block to try and get rid of the biggest gameplayer left in the house. But suddenly Shelly was campaigning on her behalf, and Dani had a glimmer of hope. Unfortunately, it lie in the hands of Adam, who's "superfan" status makes him a "superfan" of Jeff and Jordan.

'Big Brother': Zingbot 3000 Lightens the Mood Before POV Competition (VIDEO)

Zingbot 3000, 'Big Brother'Add in some decent zings and an incredibly high-pitched annoying voice and you don't get Rachel, you get the Zingbot 3000. The robot made a return appearance to 'Big Brother' (Wed., 8PM ET on CBS) this season with a fresh arsenal of insults for the remaining houseguests.

The robot zinged Rachel on talking about her "fiance" all the time, Kalia on sleeping all the time, Adam on looking like Uncle Fester, Jeff for his soul patch, Shelly for being mannish and Jordan for being terrible at questions. In fact, it was kind of nice to Jordan. But it saved it's meanest dig for Daniele.

"Do you own a car, or do you still prefer to just ride your daddy's coattails," it zinged her way. The jab would have perhaps been more biting had Evel Dick not left the house so early in the game, leaving her to fend for herself.

A New Head of Household Changes Everything on 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

Daniele Donate, 'Big Brother 13'When we left the 'Big Brother' (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS) house last Thursday, the remaining contestants were slipping and sliding across the backyard in an endurance competition to win the coveted Head of Household.

For the past three weeks, Daniele and her ally Kalia have held that title, and despite Dani's efforts to further her game, all they really managed to accomplish was the permanent eviction of Brendon.

But would her aggressive targeting of Brendon turn around and bite her now that Dani isn't even eligible to play in this week's HOH competition?

'Big Brother': Will the Power of Veto Results Affect Daniele's Strategy? (VIDEO)

'Big Brother 13'Daniele is sitting in a pretty strong position in the house, despite the calamitous return of Brendon last week derailing all of her hard work so far in 'Big Brother' (Mon., 8PM ET on CBS). But she found herself in an even more intriguing position after nominating Shelly and Adam.


It all came down to Rachel supposedly blabbing to Porsche that Shelly was looking for a Final Three deal with her and Brendon. Now, it's not 100% clear if they ever agreed, but Shelly did at least bring up the subject. At the same time, we know Shelly's been playing every side against the other.

New Strategies Emerge Amid Wheeling and Dealing on 'Big Brother' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 15th 2011 2:28AM
'Big Brother 13'Well, things have gotten very strange in the 'Big Brother' house (Sun., 8PM ET on CBS), and it all started during Kalia's reign as HOH. The twist certainly lived up to what the producers usually hope for these things, as it created absolute turmoil and turned alliances upside down.

After Lawon went crazy and thought Julie Chen was going to give him superpowers if he got eliminated last week and then send him right back into the house, Daniele and Kalia found themselves face-to-face with Brenchel again, and the Power Couples looked ready to take over the game again.

As frustrating as it was to see Brendon return into the game, essentially negating two weeks of strong gameplay by Daniele, it was almost worth it to let poor Jordan off of "Rachel-Duty." Man, that girl is a handful!
