Porsche voted to evict Jordan in Big Brother 13 Episode 28, bringing us down to a final three of Rachel, Adam, and Porsche. Tonight one of them will be crowned the Big Brother 13 winner. If it’s not Rachel, well, let’s not dwell on the alternative.
We start off with the first part of the HOH competition. Part 1 is endurance. Obviously Rachel’s going to win this like she won the other two endurance competitions. Adam drops after 28 minutes. Porsche drops at 46 minutes, and Rachel wins part 1 to move on to the final of 3 parts of this HOH competition.
Part 2 is to grab faces from the bottom of a tank and push them thruogh a maze to get them in the correct order of HOH wins. As Big Brother competitions go, this is a decent one, albeit pretty much entirely dependent on the ability to hold their breath under water. Adam finds an additional hindrance in the water. He can’t see with the goggles, so he tosses them, but he can’t see even worse without them, leading to him having to hop out of the tank and find them. Adam’s time is 6:03. Porsche beats him with a time of 3:50.
Rachel and Porsche have a final two deal. Both feel pretty comfortable this secures their position in the final two, but Adam doesn’t think that it would be smart to not take him.
Jordan thinks Rachel should win. Daniele calls her the biggest floater in the house. Huh? I guess she’s got to make up some lame reason for voting for Porsche. Kalia believes Rachel had the hardest road to the end and deserves to be there. Shelly’s still whining about that “lie” Rachel told about her making a final three deal. Can someone just show her the tapes already?
Jeff’s talked to Porsche about 8 minutes this summer. He didn’t even know she was in the house until day 52. I didn’t either. Kalia acknowledges that Porsche didn’t do anything except win a couple competitions.
Adam’s loyalty may buy him a couple of votes, but he didn’t do much either. However, at least he wasn’t invisible for a month or two. I didn’t even know Porsche was in the house most weeks until Julie asked her for her vote.
And for anybody who forgot it, Porsche and new jury member Kalia just followed Daniele around. That statement leads to an argument.
The final part of the HOH competition is the standard jury Q&A with two multiple guess options.
Brendon said the moment he is afraid to have his friends and family see is the moment he was evicted the second time. Both are wrong.
Daniele said the most shocking moment in the house was when she found out her dad would not be returning to the game. Rachel is correct.
Shelly said the fatal error she made in the house was voting to evict Jeff one week too soon. Both are wrong.
Jeff said the best thing about being in the house was getting to spend the summer with Jordan. Both are wrong.
Kalia said the biggest lie told in the house this season was anything that came out of Shelly’s mouth. Rachel is correct and wins the final HOH with 2 points.
Rachel has much better odds going up against Adam. His only support in that jury house is from people who support her more, while Porsche’s friends are going to vote for her no matter what. However, she opts to keep her word to Porsche and takes her to the final two. I don’t think it matters, though. She probably just sent her fourth vote to the jury.
The jury asks questions, and they stick Brendon with a jab at Rachel. She did a lot of hurtful things. Why should she be rewarded? She apologizes, but that doesn’t have anything to do with how she played the game.
Besides wearing a bikini and cooking, what else did Porsche do? She blames the golden key for the lack of effort.
What did Rachel do aside from winning competitions? She had one of the biggest targets on her back, but she survived anyway with a social game that was surprisingly functional.
When did Porsche start playing the game? Week 1. Really?
Evel Dick thinks the veteran alliance should have been the best alliance ever. His daughter disagrees. At least it was better than the Regulators, of which only the model is allowed to speak tonight. He declines to call her strategy stupid, but he calls it typical of playing too hard, too fast.
Jeff has patched things up with Shelly, but Daniele is not on his Christmas card list.
By a vote of 4-3, Rachel Reilly is the Big Brother season 13 winner. Lucky for Rachel that Shelly voted based on gameplay because Adam threw her a curve ball. Far from the outcome I expected or wanted on day 1, but Rachel’s a deserving winner.
Jeff wins America’s favorite player and $25,000.
Following its highest rated season among adults 18-49 since 2004, Big Brother has been renewed for season 14. For those of you doing the math, 2004 was Big Brother 5, the season before one of the worst seasons ever. Yeah, yeah, I know everybody loved Howie and Janelle for some reason I still do not understand, but that didn’t make them any better than the Friendship.
