Big Brother 13: Spoiler Alert: HOH Endurance Results and Aftermath


It was no surprise that the Big Brother 13 program last night focused on the fight at the house meeting on Wednesday. The meeting exposed Danielle to behind a move to backdoor Jeff. Danielle called Rachel an idiot and Brendon didn’t take kindly to the attack on his fiancée.

Parts of the fight were shown on the live show last night on CBS. That drama made the upcoming HOH endurance competition even more important for Danielle to win. If a veteran won HOH, she would be out of the game next week,so it was imperative that she win the endurance. Something told me she would win since she looked determined to win it. She had lasted about 8 or 9 hours in an endurance competition during Big Brother 8, so knew she was likely to win.

The house guests were on a wall with skis on and holding on to a peg in the wall. The wall began to move to a downward angle, making it more difficult to stay on.

Alex and Lawon fell off in the first 15 minutes.

Brendon fell off 15 minutes later at 7:30.

Jeff was the last man to fall at 7:45 leaving Jordan, Shelley, Kalia, Porsche and Danielle in the competition.

Jordan fell five minutes after Jeff at 7:50

Porsche lasted 20 minutes longer than Jordan falling off at 8:10

Shelley was the last of the house guests linked to the veterans to fall at 8:20 after 80 minutes

Kalia gave it to Danielle at 8:30 with Danielle lasting 90 minutes.

Jeff Wins $10,000

While Jeff was on the wall, he said he was jumping off if Brendon didn’t get the snowball with $10,000. So he jumped off the wall and won the $10,000. Jeff probably didn’t win any points with Brendon and Rachel by taking the money, instead of trying to win HOH, leaving the veterans subject to eviction.

Adam’s snowball was not so good. Now he will have to wear an elf suit. Brendon won a have-not card, which apparently will keep him from being a have-not the next time he is on the losing side of a have-not competition.

Men Lasted Half As Long As Women

The men lasted only 45 minutes, while Danielle stayed on the wall for 90 minutes. It is almost like the veteran men weren’t worried about winning. Shelly lasted 35 minutes longer than the men.

It seems like the endurance competitions don’t last as long as they used to. Kaysar worked out a deal with Jenny in Big Brother 6 during a 13 hour endurance that backfired when Jenny didn’t keep her word.

Nobody Cheered For Danielle and Kalia

Danielle and Kalia were not being cheered on during the endurance competition, which tells me they may be up for eviction the next the time veterans win HOH, since currently Porsche and Shelley are still with the veterans. That leaves Kalia and Danielle in the opposing side and maybe Lawon. Adam and Lawon seem to be floaters, so no telling how they would vote.

The bad thing for the veterans is that two of them won’t be able to vote with the two on the block. Adam and Lawon hold the key to how the next vote goes, depending who they side with.

Danielle Tells Jordan That Jordan and Jeff Are Safe

After the endurance ended Danielle told Jordan in the house, that she was not sending Jeff and Jordan home next week. She had also asked Jeff to keep her safe the following week, in return for her not putting them up for eviction later today.

I am sure a lot of the house guests will be happy if Brendon-Rachel are nominated for eviction. He can’t seem to have a conversation with anyone, without calling that person a liar. He does not have a good social game or he would have not launched into the attack on Kalia, when Kalia was still on their side. His behavior pushed her over to the other side, even if she did vote with the veterans last night.

Rachel and Danielle Apologize To Each Other

Rachel and Danielle had a talk after the endurance competition, with them apologizing to each other. I doubt anything that Brendon and Rachel say or do now will save them from being nominated today.

Rachel and Brendon talk to Porsche, wondering if Danielle would put up with Kalia. That would be a stupid move and doubt Danielle would even consider that, since Kalia seems to be solidly in with Danielle now. Why should she nominate her closest ally in the house, now that Dominic is gone?

Rachel Threatens Danielle

Rachel talks to Danielle and tells her that if she puts up Brendon and Rachel, that she won’t vote for Danielle if she is in the final two. Danielle does not like being threatened, saying she would vote for the better person in final two, not for the one she liked the most.

After the meeting with Danielle, Brendon is furious that Rachel talked to Danielle without him being there. While they are trashing Danielle, Danielle is hearing every word, which probably insured they will be nominated for eviction later today.
