I'm all for a great conspiracy theory...however Porsche didn't have to open Pandora's Box.

The pairs thing makes sense since that's how the season started.

As far as picking the pairs...they were pretty much pre-picked.

Porsche and Kalia were splitting the $10,000
Rachelle and Jordan were on the block
That left Shelly and Adam for the final pair

Rachelle wins POV and now Shelly goes home

Don't forget...this is Reality....TV

Brendan was sent out by Danielle
Danielle was sent out by Jeff
Jeff was sent out by Shelley
Shelly will be sent out next

You are right Porche did not have to open Pandora's Box -- but what an incentive to do so? $5,000 -- whether you win or lose the game. Tell me you would not open the door. Of course you would. The sum was just the right amount to take that chance.

Porche's not dumb -- take the 5 grand and deal with the conseqences.

Yes this is reality TV -- but if something can be rigged -- like say the stock market -- where everyone knows it is rigged --- then why not something so simple as Big Brother.

Was it rigged, probably. But, it means Shelly is going home, so I really don't care. Jordan won't win, and Rachel deserves to win more than Shelly.

I agree, Rachel deserves to win more than Shelly.

I also agree that after Jordan's rant this past week, she probably won't win.

But, if Shelly gets voted out this week -- and Porche cannot play in the next HOH competition, then I can see a scenerio (further down the road) -- when there are four people left that Rachel and Jordan have a good shot of being the final two standing. Then, I think Jordan wins (again).

Truth is -- Adam (like him or not for his gameplay) could probably win against both Porche and Kalia, if both Jordan and Rachel get voted out along the way.

I was thinking that Jordan won't win because everyone in Jury House knows that she didn't really deserve it once, let alone two times. I don't think she had a chance from the start.

Big Brother juries tend to do a decent job of voting for the right person. I think that the likes of Dani, Kalia, Porsche would vote for Rachel over Jordan. I don't think anybody would vote for Adam unless he starts winning competitions to be honest.

Interesting perspective on who you think might vote for Rachel. If it came down to both Jordan and Rachel -- I just wonder whether Rachel's "talkback" would get her the necessary votes.

More along the lines of Russel in Survivor. 2 part game -- one part is social. Difficult to know how buddy buddy everyone really is.

On the after dark program -- everyone (except for Shelly) playing cards and laughing. In a prior episode Kalia was cutting Rachel's hair.

Nuff for me on this. Out for the holidays -- will post again next week. And by then the game will likely be in another direction.

Before the comp even started it was obvious she was going to win and it's pretty obvious who she's going to put on the block and target.

Shocker. I didn't even bother to check last night who won. It was like watching the POV competition.

When I first saw all those donuts, I thought Kalia would have a good shot. But when I realized there was an obstacle course, I new she didn't have a chance and that the competition was tailor-made for Rachel.

Damn..i thought this was Adam's race to win . Maybe if it was bacon instead.

Wasn't much of a race really, looked like they were taking their sweet time.

Kalia and Porsche were nominated for eviction.

Adam won the POV.

Now, if Adam has any sense he would use the POV meaning that only Jordan could be nominated with Adam and the newbie pulled from the block being the only 2 votes.

Of course, this is Adam we are talking about.

Welcome to the game Adam...

Wasn't there an Adam back when Dick won that did the exact same thing...floated until about this time and then really came on strong...I think he almost beat Dick.
