It has been a very busy last 2 days in theBig Brotherhouse as a new HOH was crowned on the live feeds, and two of the Houseguests were nominated yesterday!
When the live show ended on Thursday all of the HGs, with the exception of Rachel, were participating in the endurance competition — something the Veteran alliance feared because they felt Danielle would excel in such a comp.
So did Danielle win or did one of the Veterans win? Let’s face it; the newbies are pretty useless at this point in the game. Well the spoilers are below.

Big Brother 13’s Cassi Colvin found herself on the chopping block after the Veteran alliance, well mostly Rachel, decided she was a threat.
And perhaps they were right. Unlike most players who play the Big Brother game, Cassi was loyal to her alliance till the end, unwilling to tell the others what they wanted to hear and even refused to campaign against her partner Shelly to stay in the game. Not surprisingly, Cassi was evicted from the BB13 house last Thursday in an unanimous vote.
In a new interview with DigitalSpy, Cassi reveals if she really thinks Rachel is jealous of her, why she refused to campaign against Shelly (she’s not aware Shelly back stabbed the alliance) and reveals what she would have done differently. Excerpts from her interview below –
There was a lot of discussion about girls in the house being jealous of your looks. Do you think that’s what was really behind Rachel’s dislike for you? “Honestly, that belief was brought to my attention several times and I was the last to give any credit to that being the case. I think Rachel’s biggest issue with me is that I am a girl [who’s] comfortable in my own skin and happy with who I am on the inside when I don’t think she has found herself yet. Also, I think she was intimidated because she knew that I wouldn’t be her minion because of the Brenchal union or her experience in the game. I feel that I was the most independent newbie, the one least likely to let their promises of safety throw me off guard and make me easy to sway – I have my own mind.”
You said that you didn’t feel you could campaign against Shelly because you two had become so close. Do you feel that relationship was worth potentially giving up $500k? “Shelly and I always said it was our worst nightmare to be put on the block together. We hoped to make it through the duos and golden key period intact. She was the only person in the house that my trust in never wavered with. Because I respect and adore her so much, I had nothing negative to say about her. Any speaking I did on my behalf after nominations was never to portray myself as a better option to keep in the house but only to remind people of what I had to offer in the game. I feel pretty confident that my pleas would have been to no avail because from a gameplay standpoint at this point in time, I am the bigger threat. I don’t think my campaigning or lack thereof affected my chance at the prize and I still left with my integrity and no regrets.”
If given another chance to play the game, would you have done anything differently? “As cautious as I was from day one with what I said and who I said it to, I definitely could have been more tightlipped. I think a lot of the newbies recognized that I was ready to play from the start because I was so outspoken and honest. This made it easy for me to become the scapegoat for the things we were all feeling.”
The newbie alliance seemed pretty solid in the beginning but crumbled soon after, with two members flipping over to the other side in the first week. What do you think went wrong there? “Although unspoken, the line was clearly drawn coming into the house with new versus old players and unfortunately rather than the newbies realizing that this was a golden opportunity to use our number advantage to our benefit, they cowered to intimidation because of the veterans’ experience in the game and relationship with one another outside of the house.”
You attempted to align yourself with the veterans after the first elimination. Is this something you always imagined you’d have to do at some point in the game or was going to the other side just a last-ditch effort to stay in the game? “The veterans actually approached Shelly and I with the proposal of keeping one another safe. In my mind, it was never an alliance nor did I have any intention with aligning with the veterans as a whole. For me, it was simply a deal to keep Shelly and I safe for the time being, hence why I encouraged other newbies to put Brendon and Rachel up because they were the biggest threat in the game and it wasn’t an option for myself because my word is my word. But further on down the road, I would have been interested in aligning with Jeff and Jordan.”
A live eviction episode of Big Brother will air tonight on CBS at 9/8c during which host Julie Chen will reveal a new twist! As we reported last week, the eliminated HGs are being sequestered. When you add in Evel Dick’searly departure, it’s all but certain there will be a twist to bring back one of the evicted HGs.
Up for eviction tonight are Dominic and Adam. And thanks to Danielle’s shenanigans and all around bad game play, it’s all but certain Dominic will get the boot. Dominic is however not giving up just yet as he is trying to sway the newbie votes (Kalia, Shelly and Porsche) his way. He seems to have Kalia’s vote but will Shelly, who claims to be feeling very guilty for backstabbing her alliance, and Porsche vote for him to stay? We will find out tonight. Once again, here’s to hoping a newbie wins tonight’s HOH so there is a desperately needed shift of power in the house!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CASSIE’S INTERVIEW & TONIGHTS EPISODE? WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR TO STAY? DOMINIC OR ADAM?
Following another HOH win by the Veteran alliance, even worse Rachel was the winner, we have still yet to experience a power shift in the BB house. And not surprisingly, Dominic and Adam continued to be targets as evident by their nominations.
Below, spoilers on the veto competition, the winner, whether it was used and most importantly, which returning HG is causing drama in the house! Hint – it ain’t Rachel!

It was a classic case of playing too hard too quickly, or was it more his cockiness? Either way, Keith Henderson found himself the first houseguest to be voted out of Big Brotherseason 13.
Keith’s elimination came as a complete surprise to him as he was so confident about his safety to the point that he decided to throw the veto competition… during the first week of the game. In a new interview with TV Guide, the 32-year-old youth pastor reveals what he would have done differently, who he thinks voted him out, and answers if he is a hypocrite for, you know, being a youth pastor and a horndog. Excerpts from Keith’s interview below –
TVGuide.com: Why did you choose to partner with Porsche? Keith: Porsche is hot. She is also a physical competitor. [And] I thought she would be able to manipulate the guys. “Keith’s Angels” was still in the back of my mind when I picked her.
TVGuide.com: Can you better explain how your “Keith’s Angels” strategy was supposed to work? Do you think it would have worked if not for the “dynamic duos” twist? Keith: Yes, it would have worked. The strategy was to align with three girls [and] use the girls to manipulate the guys — play with emotion, lie, get the blood on their hands — until we eliminated all of the guys and it was just us left.
TVGuide.com: So do you regret throwing the veto competition? Keith: I do regret throwing it because my alliance didn’t have my back!
TVGuide.com: Right, you told Julie after your eviction that you “got played.” Who do you think voted against you? Keith: [I think] Dominic and Cassi voted against me. [Ed. note:Shelly and Kalia were the deciding votes. Both Dominic and Cassi voted to evict Porsche.]I wasn’t surprised. I figured it out a day in advance when I told them to tell the veterans how we were voting and they wouldn’t do it.
TVGuide.com: Some people might think it’s odd or hypocritical for a Deacon to be so actively chasing after women… Keith: It’s not odd or hypocritical. I am a single guy, and I firmly believe that God wants us to find our wife. How can I find one if I am not actively looking?
Judging from the interview, it appears Keith is still being sequestered despite his eviction aka the Big Brother producers might be planning a twist to bring back one of the evicted HGs.
Tonight, a live episode of Big Brother airs on CBS at 9/8c during which another HG will be evicted. On the chopping block are Cassie and Shelly, and it is not looking good for Cassie as Shelly is working with the alum alliance in addition to the fact that Rachel is jealous of not a fan of Cassie. Whatever happens with the eliminations, here’s to hoping one of the newbies will win HOH tonight bringing some excitement and unpredictability to the game. I will admit this week hasn’t been all that bad with Rachel‘s antics and Dominic winning the POV.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON KEITH’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU ROOTING FOR CASSIE OR SHELLY?
We’re only two weeks into the current season of Big Brother 13 and already, it has become a lackluster season.
Similar to the big failure of the “Saboteur” twist last season during which the Saboteur was the first Houseguest evicted, the twist this season of the returning “dynamic duos” is turning out to be one big ball of fail.
As I’ve stated on numerous occasions, Big Brother might just be my favorite reality show of all time, yes, I like it even more than the Housewives, okay maybe just slightly more. The show is simply genius and manages to captivate fans year after year with crazy twists and even crazier characters. So when it was revealed this season that some of the popular past HGs would be returning, I and others were filled with glee! However the show premiered and just two weeks in, it’s become predictable, lackluster and I find myself wishing the returning HGs had never returned. My reasons are below –
The Dick Factor – While I’m no fan of Evel Dick, he was arguably the most entertaining, combative, and explosive player on the cast this season. Matter of fact in the history of Big Brother. His return was met with cheers from both fans and non-fans of his. Love him or hate him, you knew he was going to make this season one to watch. However, Evel Dick’s run in the BB13 house was short lived. As in he had already left the house by the time the show premiered on Thursday, July 7. Even worse, ED was not replaced and instead his daughter, the slightly annoying Danielle, was given a golden key guaranteeing her safety for 4 weeks. Even much worse, no explanation was given for Dick’s departure. Seriously, the viewers deserved an explanation. It’s the least Big Brother could do after his abrupt exit.
The Returning HGs – Once again, this twist sounded great in theory but my feelings started to change once the returning HGs (Jeff and Jordan, Brendon and Rachel, Evel Dick and Danielle) actually re-entered the house. Something about the return just felt a bit like deja vu, sort of like a been there done that feeling probably because they had been there and done that. As expected, Jeff and Jordan were still as adorable as ever while Brendon and Rachel were still as annoying as ever. Evel Dick and Danielle were no longer on speaking terms which was not surprising and felt very 2007. With the returning HGs, we are missing out on the magic that came out of their first appearances. Seeing Jeff and Jordan connecting on the show, possibly falling in love was a one time deal as well as seeing Brenchel connecting on the most ridiculous things. Plus having to see Evel Dick and Danielle try to mend their relationship… again with ED carrying Dani all the way to the end… again would have been pretty boring and uneventful. And isn’t it interesting that even in ED’s absence, he’s still carrying Danielle further in the game?
The New Houseguests – This brings me to the new HGs who I now find myself rooting for at all costs. Why? Well because they are now the underdogs in the game. In addition to the fact that it’s really unfair to pit the newbies against some of the best players to play the game. After all, Jordan and ED are past winners while the other returning HGs made it pretty far in their respective seasons. While the poor newbies pretended to be excited upon hearing Julie Chen’s announcement of the twist, you could clearly see in their eyes that they were none too pleased to be sharing their season and chances at half a million dollars with others who already had their chance. And just as expected, the returning HGs banded together to form a tight alliance and have been mercilessly kicking the butts of the newbies. Let’s face it, did they ever really stand a chance? And despite the newbies being stupid, not being able to stick together, and being amateurs at the game (well this is their first time playing), it’s gotten to the point where I find myself hopelessly rooting for them, and hoping they pick off the returning HGs, even Jeff and Jordan – both of whom I happen to love, one by one.
The All Star Season? – With the return of the 6 HGs this season, what does this mean for a future BB all star season? The first and last all star season was season 7 which would lead any rational fan to believe season 14 (next year) would make the second all star season. By bringing back the HGs this year, does this mean they won’t appear on next year’s all star? Better yet, what does this twist mean for next year’s all star? Is that even in the works? As a devoted BB fan, I can only hope! As the first all star season was one of the best BB seasons yet. Can you imagine an all star season with Jeff, Jordan, Brendon, Rachel, Evel Dick, Danielle, and other great players? Now that would have been something to watch! But by bringing these players back this year, Big Brother might have inadvertently ruined what could have been a phenomenal all star season 14.
And judging from the feedback of Big Brother fans online, it seems majority of them feel the same way I do. Following Jordan’s win for HOH last Thursday, many fans started to complain about the predictability of this season.
The Reality Blurred blog summed it up best – “Dominic seems like he has some game in him, so I was disappointed when he lost HOH and Jordan won. Her win makes me significantly less interested in the next week of competition because the returnees remain in control. The show and game work best when power flips, but this win plus this season’s structure means there’s little chance of that.”
Some of the comments from BB fans on twitter are below –
“[The newbies] are more like superfans than players,” tweeted TammyRene_.
“The show is predictable b/c we’ve seen the vets play before, we knw all their moves..so it’s like wtf step ur game up newbies,” tweeted IamJerves.
“Gonna be a boring week!!! I cannot take any more of Bookie,” tweeted auroralmama.
“The veterans seem so bored and not very appreciative that they are there.” tweeted RHO_TWEETS.
I couldn’t agree more. Big Brother had better hope the newbies start winning some competitions if they plan on keeping me interested this season. Because quite frankly, a Big Brother 13 season in which the alums pick off the newbies one by one and end up making it to the final 5 will be awful to watch. They had their chances. The newbies deserve a fair chance as well.

During a discussion with fellow HG Kalia this week, the topic turned to Harry Potter books and its writer J.K. Rowling‘s past statement that Dumbledore was a gay character.
Jeff appeared taken aback by the revelation stating, “He’s in a school with little kids, you can’t make that guy gay!” He then added, “It isn’t right to have it in a little kids book, and have the head master locked away in this magical land, be gay. That isn’t the right kind of writing to do.”
Kalia’s response was, “Why? Gay men can’t work with little kids!?” adding, “Just because he is gay, doesn’t mean there is a thing wrong with him.” Jeff replied, “You know exactly what I’m saying. Don’t make it seem like you’re doing the right thing by saying that it’s not.”
As for CBS, they responded with the statement below –
“Big Brother is a reality show about watching a group of people who have no privacy 24/7 — and seeing every moment of their lives. At times, the Houseguests make comments, reveal prejudices and other beliefs that we do not condone. Any views or opinions expressed in personal commentary by a Houseguest appearing on BIG BROTHER, either on any live feed from the House or the broadcast, are those of the individual(s) speaking and do not represent the views or opinions of CBS or the producers of the program.”
Some are calling Jeff homophobic while some of his defenders are stating he isn’t citing he developed a friendship with the openly gay KevinCampbell during his 2009 stint on Big Brother. It will be interesting to see if CBS will show Jeff’s comments on the televised airing. Houseguest Cassi also received some flack last week after she jokingly referred to Dominic as a ‘fa**ot’ on the live feeds.
A new episode of Big Brother is set to air tonight on CBS during which the first houseguest of season 13 will be evicted. Up on the chopping block are Porsche and Keith. On last night’s episode, Keith was overly cocky and planned to throw the Veto competition because he believes he has enough votes to stay. Keith is assuming all of the new HGs will vote for him. Wowzers.
Rachel won the veto and left the nominations the same. So far, it appears the plan of the returning HGs is to keep Porsche in the house and vote out Keith. But do they have enough votes to do so? We will find out tonight on CBS at 9/8c.

UPDATE #3 – Evel Dick posted a video online on his RTVZone site revealing he left the show due to an emergency involving someone close to him. He claims out of respect for the person’s privacy, he will not reveal more information or even who this person is. He denies it was a publicity stunt and states he was there to win the game. He apologized to CBS, Danielle and his alliance. There are rumors it might have something to do with his girlfriend. Dick’s absence came to light last Thursday when the live feeds came on and fans discovered Dick had gone into the diary room to never return.
UPDATE #2 – Evel Dick just posted the following on his twitter page – “I will be releasing a public video statement on @RTVZone in the next couple days concerning my departure from the Big Brother House.” He added, “But to squash the rumors, I am not in jail, don’t have cancer, my mother son and girlfriend are not in the hospital & I was not kicked out.”
UPDATE – CBS has now confirmed Dick has indeed left the game. “Due to a personal matter, houseguest Dick Donato had to leave the game unexpectedly on Thursday. His departure will be addressed on the episode to be broadcast on Wednesday, July 13,” said a rep for the network.
Ai ya ya, just one day into the live feeds, some major updates to report.
It now appears Evel Dick, one of the former HGs to return to the game, has exited the Big Brotherhouse. Dick’s absence was first noticed on the live feeds early this morning as he was no where to be found once the feeds came on.
According to the HGs, Dick had been called into the diary room and remained there for hours while the HGs worried about his whereabouts.
Finally Dick’s daughter Danielle was called into the diary room hours ago and told Dick had left the show. In return, Danielle was given a golden key which will keep her safe until week 10. No word yet on why Dick left the show but Danielle was assured it had nothing to do with their immediate family. Will update this story once the reason for Dick’s exit comes out.
And as reported earlier this week, the returning HGs were indeed Jeff and Jordan, Brendon and Rachel, and of course Evel Dick and Danielle. The nominations had already taken place before Dick’s exit so based on the BB schedule, Dick’s absence won’t be addressed until the Wednesday episode.
Rachel is the current HOH and she has nominated Porsche and Keith. (Highlight the previous sentence to see the names).
