Veteran player Jeff won the Power of Veto this week and took himself off the block, as expected. However, the replacement nominee selection comes as kind of a surprise if you haven’t been keeping up with the backdoor dealing on the Big Brother live feeds.
You’d think Daniele would push Kalia to the end of the earth to get Rachel out at this point. The wisest move to get her out likely would have been to put up Porsche as the replacement nominee. At first, this seems to be the plan, with Shelly convincing Kalia this would be the best move. Shelly, of course, has been working with Rachel and Brendon (among others) and she’s trying to get herself in the best position for the long haul.
Daniele, however, who is really the power behind the Head of Household this week, isn’t into this plan. She wants Rachel OUT. Kalia thinks eliminating a floater will get the rest of the houseguests off their back for a while.
Kalia talks to Shelly again. She is still liking the keeping Rachel and eliminating a floater idea. She wants Shelly to get promises from Jeff, Jordan and Rachel that if she keeps Rachel, they won’t come after her (and Daniele).
Jeff tells Kalia he will support her plan to keep Rachel and eliminate a floater from Big Brother. However, Jeff has told Jordan that he still plans on going after Daniele and Kalia.
Daniele is still not pleased with the plan to put up Porsche and that the other veterans will end up with all the power. Kalia says she can make a deal with Rachel to keep them off her and Daniel’s back.
Then things get crazier than anyone could anticipate when Lawon starts thinking the person evicted this week will return as the new Head of Household. That’s because of the whole ‘twist’ host Julie Chen mentioned about the next houseguest elimated having a chance to return to the show.
Lawon, Porsche and Daniele start working the idea of getting Lawon put up against Rachel instead of Porsche. Lawon actually thinks getting evicted will be a GOOD thing. He’s so clueless. Daniele thinks this is a ‘genius’ plan. She needs smacking.
This could be one of the weirdest plays in the Big Brother 13 house so far. And not only will Lawon probably end up getting royally screwed, Kalia and Daniele could very well be digging their own Big Brother graves.
So, against all better sense, Kalia decides to put up Lawon as the replacement nominee. If all goes according to their plan, Lawon will get evicted, leaving Rachel behind to go after Kalia and Daniele. Kalia and Daniele, of course, don’t give a flying f**k if Lawon actually stands any chance of returning to the house. He’s just their pawn. But they could be totally screwed with Rachel coming after them and Jordan and Jeff still aiming for them as well.
Lawon tells Shelly after the renom that he is pissed about being put up, even though he is not. She says she heard he volunteered, which he denies. She said that is good because it would be a completely stupid move.
Well, yeah, we don’t really have anything else to add to that comment.
What do you think of this crazy move and who do you think will really end up going home this week?
