SHELLY AND THE ROADBLOCK…DANI AND THE “DR” GUYS…
It seems like timing is everything in the BB house and this week has begun with its share of scandal. With Shelly’s new found desire to campaign votes for Danielle to stay, the dynamic of the house is changing rapidly.
As the numbers dwindle down in the house, it is crucial to reformulate strategy. With the eminent Fast Forward week approaching, winning the competitions is the only thing you can count on.
I must admit, I did not see (not this early anyway but knew it to be a strong possibility) Shelly being so determined to throw off Jeff’s plan to vote out Danielle. It really didn’t make much sense. Why would she want to keep another Vet (a strong Vet at that) and make it known to J/J/R that she helped keep Danielle in the game? It took me some pondering but I came up with this…
It’s all about Rachel. She can’t beat the combination of Jeff and Rachel…or by the looks of it…anyone else for that matter. With strong competitors becoming more and more aware of her double-sided play, her best (only) weapon (her mind), is now becoming less and less useful.
With Rachel being so happy Jeff nomed Danielle in the name of Brenden, Rachel is all smiles (for now). With a likely outcome of Danielle leaving Thursday, there is a strong chance of Rachel winning the FF HOH, and since Rachel doesn’t like Shelly (even if it’s civil for now), that’s puts in BIG target square on Shelly’s back and Shelly knows it. So what can Shelly do? What she always does…have someone else, yet again, do her dirty work and come off acting like she REALLY, REALLY respected Danielle all along.
With Jeff not being able to play in the Fast Forward Thursday, his hopes rely on Jordan (oops!) and, depending on her mood at the second, Rachel, to pull off the HOH for the team. Since, out of the two, Rachel has a better chance of winning…Shelly will have no time to plead her case…and even less of a chance to win a Veto. I guess it’s time for her to flip…work to keep Dani…let Dani take out Rachel or Jeff in the FF HOH and hope anyone left won’t see her as the target for the next HOH after the FF week. There is one big problem with that plan…
Adam. Adam doesn’t seem to be bending to the alternating/combined attacks/threats of Danielle and Shelly. Additionally, Shelly REALLY showed a horrible side of herself these last few days, and honestly, deep down, because Adam respects the game so much, I don’t think he wants to be associated with anything Shelly (and he knows her style of game to a “T”). Shelly is practically pushing Adam into the arms of the J/J/R alliance, putting him into the spot she used to occupy.
You don’t get Adam…you don’t get to keep Danielle…simple. Jordan, Rachel and Adam will release Dani back into the wild (placing her even further away from winning BB than in her season). I hope Adam stays strong…and we say bye to Danielle (forever…no All-Stars…no-redos).
Adam will be one to watch in this upcoming FF week. He already said (like many others in the past) that this HOH is his. Though others have said this before and lost…I do believe that Adam is done playing possum (for now). Shelly is running the major risk of being ousted by a variety of people who know what she is up to. If she keeps pushing Adam too hard…she can find herself out the door pretty quick. One thing is for sure…the truth always seems to come out in the BB house. Two days and counting…
Adam, I like ya…you have moved up the boards to my number one spot to win BB. Though you’ve only won a POV, you have half a game left to start winning those comps and satisfy all the comp-winning junkies out there. Good Luck, buddy!
Wrapping up. Once again, I have heard from certain HGs about Danielle having personal relationships with some of the production guys. Rumors of her receiving wine in DR sessions, special treatment, heads up on events and a possible walk-off from some of the BB staff in the event of her eviction, seem to be making their way around the campfire. It does seem to be semi-confirmed she does “know” (from the outside world), and when I say “know” I mean these people actually exist, at least two people (
Rob and, I think, Brian Jeff and Natalie) on the production staff…but this could just be scare tactics. If anyone has heard or seen something I have missed regarding this…please comment…’cause it’s BS if even half the stuff is true.
Final thought. This week will be the mark of Shelly’s biggest mistakes in the game. She has lit too many fires and now seeks the help of the devil to put them out…and she’s not gonna walk away this time.
