I tried to watch Jeff's eviction interview and the CBS website blocked me from watching it in Canada. Is it available somewhere else?

Porsche has nominated Rachel & Jordan. It appears that due to Pandora's Box, if one is removed from the nominations, both get removed.

ah. that makes sense.
Was watching a bit of after dark last night and saw Kalia going on about "if they both get off the block..." and didnt know what she was talking about.

I see these people are still idiots. I assume they didn't have to risk anything but they did.

From another site:

Quote:
Veto comp will be duos Jordan and Rachel, Shelly and Adam and Porsche and Kalia.
So, 1/3 chance everything will blow up.

Well only if you assume each pair has equal chance of winning. Something tells me the contest might be carefully selected such that one team might perhaps have an edge. Or maybe one team will get the best lane, or the lightest weight or whatever.

So, if Shelly and Adam win then they can't use the veto since nobody is left to replace the 2 on the block.

The game is rigged. The only reason that production is having a game like this is to give the vets a chance. If only one of the vets went on the block they wouldn't have had a game where both players would come off the block if they win POV.

What now -- everyone's recent strategy seems out the door. Convenient? Conspiracy theory?

Recently saw a bio special on Andre the Giant and the wrestling industry -- certainly I think what you are saying about the game being rigged is true.

Yeah, and you probably think 9/11 was a conspiracy too.

I was going to ask how the pairs were selected but what's the point? The producers aren't even trying that hard any more.

It is funny to think that the hypothetical Adam/shelly win could have left them with no nominees available, but who are we kidding? That was never a possibility.

Having teams this late in the game is probably worse than bringing back a previously kicked out player whose now on the jury.

Also having both nominees on the same team was unfair.

Lots of HOH's that were for not this season.

Pandora's Box opened by Porsche. She got $5,000 but reportedly her nominations will be a pair and if one is taken off the block, both are off.

Right now, it is hard for me to imagine that the Producers of the Show have not told Shelly what has been going on outside the house with her family -- in the same way that they told EDick about his sick friend.

If TMZ's reporting is correct, I am sure that the show's creators and producers do not want any further liability so they have just cooked up this scheme.

Pre-determined if you will. Porche get's 5,000 plus a chance to still win.

Maybe they offered Shelly 50,000 to take a dive and get her out this week by not winning veto.

Pairs for just one week. Ha, Ha -- I think that they just made this up now.

Even Julie said on live TV that the pairs concept was fininshed for this season.

Expect that the very end will be Kalia and Rachel.
