Big Brother 13 producers have brought a whole new dynamic to the show, pitting eight rookies against six grizzled veterans of the CBS reality show.
However the veterans lost one of their best competitors in “Evil Dick” Donato almost immediately after the game started. Neither Evil Dick or CBS has revealed what the reason was for him to leave, other than that it was a personal matter.
With the veterans at a 8-5 disadvantage after the loss of Evil Dick, they will have to play the game even harder to whittle down the edge by the rookies.
The veterans are trying to lure some of the rookies to their side, but it is too soon to tell if any of the rookies will actually switch sides. After tonight’s eviction vote, it may be clearer if any of the rookies actually switched sides, or they just told the veterans what they wanted to hear.
One thing for sure after tonight’s vote, is that the rookies will have a 7-5 advantage. If Evil Dick had stayed, the rookies would only have a 7-6 edge after tonight’s eviction. It is imperative that the veterans win tonight’s HOH competition, or they could be at a 7-4 disadvantage after next week’s eviction.
There should be 10 voters tonight with six rookies and four veterans casting votes. That explains why the veterans are intent on converting some of the rookies to their side. If the veterans lose HOH tonight that means 9 voters will vote next week with only three votes for the veterans and six votes for the rookies, unless some rookies come over to the veteran’s side.
It is almost a foregone conclusion that no veterans will be going to the rookie’s side, so it is a matter of the veterans talking the rookies into joining with the veterans.
It made no sense to me why Keith Henderson and Porsche Briggs would throw the veto competition, knowing they were both up for eviction. If either had won, they would have saved themselves from being evicted. I just don’t understand why they thought throwing the competition would be to their advantage.
