Recap: 'Big Brother' Wednesday - Another PoV Shakeup

I’m not much for prognostication, as a general rule. But even if I were a long-term "Big Brother" viewer, I would have ceased long ago trying to figure out who is the favorite to win this season. Trying to apply things like "logical reasoning" to what’s gone down this year is a sure fire way to drive oneself crazy. The best way to think about anything that happens is to assume that the person making the latest bizarre decision just got hit in the head with a shovel by Julie Chen.

Shelly’s still a lying liar that lies about her previous deal with Brenchel. (I CAN’T BELIEVE I have to use that combo name again. I thought I was past this. Sigh.) The two women agree to unite and cleave that couple once and for all. "I suck at lying," Daniele says once alone. Heh. Next up in the HoH Room: Adam! She reiterates that Brendon needs to leave, thereby neutralizing Rachel on her own. "You’re just a pawn in my game," she says. "Pawns go home," says the newly shorn Adam. Had he decided to grow a Fienberg-esque beard, he would be my prohibitive favorite to win. Oh well. That whisker war is over. Read More...
