Big Brother 13 HoH Endurance Updates 9/08

10:39 PM -- Feeds are back and Rachel won this first HoH round.

10:35 PM ET - Porsche asks Adam if he'd make sure she doesn't drown, but then says she's scared to let go. Rachel, meanwhile, is solid as a rock. The mixer spun about five times more then to trivia. I think she dropped, but need the feeds to come back before I commit to it. What wusses this bunch are! In previous seasons, this would go on for hours.




10:32 PM -- Rachel and Porsche still up. Porsche is starting to look sick and make groaning noises.



10:24 PM ET -- Feeds back. Adam off. Porsche and Rachel still strong. Back to trivia.

10:17 PM ET -- Rachel and Porsche solid as a rock. Adam whining, swearing and squirming. Then to trivia. Wanna bet he's off when it comes back?



10:10 PM ET - All are still up. The newest updates will be on the top of this post.

Adam just puked or something. He apologized and they both said it's okay. I don't he'll be on that long.

Ninboh said...

So hopefully Rachel wins. Haven't looked at the other post yet. How many of you had BB updated with Bloomberg's press conference.

Donna in Alabama said...

It would have been cruel if BB had fed them a feast of spicy food earlier today!

Ninboh said...

I mean interrupted, not updated.

By extending his arms above,Adam is wasting a lot of energy. He has no chance.

Ed in Ohio said...

Adam ~ Long shot 100 to 1 odds

Porsche ~ 10 to 1 odds

Rachel ~ 3 to 1 odds the Favorite

Hang in there Rach!

Donna in Alabama said...

No ticker tape or breaking news here and only a short announcement as the second story on our local news!

Donna in Alabama said...

HIS ARMS SHOULD ALREADY BE NUMB IN THAT POSITION.

Sorry, did not see the caps lock.

lynn1 said...

I hope that Rachel will win this comp but I have some doubts. As the evening progresses I think Porsche may have an edge because she is dressed warmer.
Being cold and wet is a killer on these endurance comps.

Sally said...

I'm watching the Packer game and recorded BB, but stopped by to get a BB update during half-time. Sad to learn that Porsche really did evict Jordan--not because Jordan deserved the win this year, but because she's so darn likeable.

Thanks for following the endurance comp, Jackie. I'll be back later.

lynn1 said...

I hear about the terrorists threats on NYC and DC after the Presidents speech.
I pray to God that nothing happens.

Ninboh said...

Yeah but this one is speed and combatting nausea. No one is going to stay on long enough to be at risk for hypothermia from wet water based paint. I hope Rachel takes this part. I want Rachel to at least have a fighting chance to win the final part of this HOH and not be the odd man out while the other two losers duke it out.

Anonymous said...

Rachel deserves to win at this point and I can't believe I'm saying this. Adam simply cannot do an endurance comp even if a half a mill is on the line.

Ed in Ohio said...

Adams off! One down one to go.

RiseandShine said...

So, if I remember correctly...the winner of this advances to the final round, the two losers of this round battle again, then the winner of battle 2 and today's winner battle for HOH.
Then that HOH just eliminates someone and we have F2.
Yes?

SueGee said...

I knew who would be off first!! Hope he didn't puke in what they are swishing around in eeeewwwww

lynn1 said...

As we like to say down here in Louisiana "GEAUX Rachel!"

Ed in Ohio said...

Sending 'good vibes' to Rachel...Hang in there. You can do it. Concentrate.

Anonymous said...

PLEASE RACHEL, WIN THIS.

I cannot stand to watch Adam or Porche win anything. Its not right that the ultimate floaters are ONCE AGAIN (hayden) in the finals. Rachel deserves this, and sad to see Jordon leave. :o(

Ed in Ohio said...

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

YES! Sorry to see Jordan go tonight, but so happy at least Rachel won!

monty924 said...

I agree Jackie. They are wusses. Rachel was just in a zone and not going anywhere. YAY RACHEL!

lynn1 said...

Rachel Rocks!

Donna in Alabama said...

None of the endurance comps this year have been much of an all nighter...

Ed in Ohio said...

Wonder if Porsche is now regretting her decision to keep Rachel and evict Jordan.

Those two didn't have a chance against Rachel in this comp.

Ninboh said...

Wooo go Rachel!!

GoTeamRachel said...

Yeah Rachel!

Anonymous said...

Rachel did it. Yes as one poster said, I would think Porche and Adam would have felt they could win against Jordon. Whatever.
Sad Jordo is gone but happy Rachel won. I am hoping Jeff wins America's favorite. I wish he would not have gone koo koo in the jury house though. Thats not typical behavior for Big Jeff.

SueGee said...

WhoooWhoooo and I agree - these guys (Rachael excepted) couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag. They would rather deal than hang on!!

SueGee

Ed in Ohio said...

Now I believe had Jordan stayed she could've probably beat those two 'wusses' too.

Rachel all the way!

Anonymous said...

Remember the days of BB when some challenges would go on for hours or at least over an hour??? There were NOT as many foaters in those days. I knew Porche would cave and Adam....duh!!

I hate endurance comps so I don't mind that this was fast.

Jackie said...

I don't know the schedule for the comps, but they'd never have another one tonight after the endurance.

Anonymous said...

YAY RACHEL... now keep it going girl!!!

Not surprised that Rachel did well on this. A few days ago, Jordan told Rachel that she is a BEAST in the physical comps. LOL

Adam has never done well with physical challenges. He was holding his arms in such a way that had to put a lot of strain on his back... and make his arms go to sleep too.

I thought Porsche would do better at physical comps than she has... seems to do better when it's something using her brain (as much as I don't like how her brain works).

If Rachel makes it to F2, I do hope the jury can manage to look past some of their own particular Rachel 'isms' and vote for her as the really good competitor that she is. I won't hold my breath...

Thanks, Jackie.
And thank you to everyone foe sharing your thoughts.
As it is each BB season, this is a great blog.

monty924 said...

Final (third comp) will be live on Wednesday, if they do like last year and S11. Kevin and Enzo walked out and then had to do the jury question thing then vote on the live show. I'm guessing part 2 will be tomorrow or Saturday.

Ninboh said...

I hate the way they handle the final 3 in recent seasons. It's rude to the third place contestant who has no shot to decompress. It also makes it less likely that that contestant will get America's vote. Who are you all voting for? I'd vote for Rachel just in case she misses F2 but I feel no one else will do that. Vote for Brendan, Jordan??? I can't vote for Jeff, he got it last time. Shelly and Kalia are out of the question as are all of the early evictees.

Ninboh said...

We should post the names of those still in alive in the pool at F3. (Includes me this time). Also those who got Rachel must be really suprised she got this far. I actually predicted that Porsche and Adam would get to the end game b/c of the way they floated to the extent they did for much of the game. But Rachel was a "fun" suprise for me.

EileenM said...

Go Rachel

Anonymous said...

Of the 3 remaining, I'd only vote Rachel for America's Favorite.

If voting for someone else, I don't care if Jeff won it before, I'd vote for him again... or Jordan.

Brendon has been a very good sport. It's a shame, but I'd still have a hard time voting for him.

Dani - no way, and feel the same about the rest of this season's crew.

Sharon

For a tough looking guy, Adam has to be one of the biggest wimps on BB - ever! Even Chicken George was better at comps than Adam!

Sissy said...

If Rachel makes it to the final 2 I'm sure she would have Brendon, Jeff and Jordan's vote no matter who's sitting in the other chair. That means she would need one more vote. Maybe Jordan could alk Shelly into voting for Rachel, I'm sure Dani and Kalia would not vote for her. If Porshe is the final juror, I think she would vote for Adam, however if Adam is the final Juror that would be a tough call because although he's a "newbie" he did stick with Rachel and Jordon the past couple of weeks. It should be a close vote. Just to add a side note and I'm sure most people agree, Jordon went out with a lot of class. She didn't cry a river like Kalia, she didn't act mad and even told Rachel for her to go and win it. Naive or not, Jordan is the classiest.

PDX Granny said...

As I read the comments, I have to chuckle over how many are cheering Rachel on. I can probably count on one hand the number that began the season with her as a favorite.

Getting rid of Brendon was the best thing that could have happened to her in this game.

BrendonBlows said...

Thrilled my girl Rachel won another comp and gets to go to the final comp!

Sad we didn't get to see Jordan's much talked about and freshly ironed special Eviction Dress. I guess BB insisted she wear athletic gear in case Porsche didn't evict her and she had to compete in the HOH.

I have really enjoyed this season, Dominic was charming, the games Brenchel invented were a huge improvement over the endless beer pongs of seasons past, Jordon's insights into everybody except Shelly were astute, Rachel got to spread her wings and fly free of Brendon's obsessive controlling dysfunction, Shelly was outed and booted, Adam got to show his soft side, loved the OTEV shark, loved that so many women did so well by winning so many HOHs!

Great season, interesting cast, miss Jordan already, have no doubt they will bring Dominic back as a vet on a future season, and I hope Rachel takes in all...the 500k, the 25k, and starts a new life, hopefully without crazy Brendon, you can do better girl!

FA (formerly anon) said...

Just watched tonight's show.

I don't like Porsche. I don't know why exactly, but I dislike her almost as much as I dislike Shelly. At least I know why I dislike Shelly.

But Porsche just really rubs me the wrong way. Maybe because she seems to think she's all that. No sense of humility whatsoever. Yuck.

FA (formerly anon) said...

Sissy, totally agree about Jordan having class. She and Brendon both did. I guess we see how those two couples balance each other out, lol

Anonymous said...

Watching BBAD...

Unlike the first few weeks of the Rachel & Brendon Show, with him gone, I want Rachel to win now.

With only 3 people left, and maybe only 2 would be playing in a Morph comp, it seems strange and late in the game to have that one now.

Just in case, please Rachel, QUIT pointing out various features of people to Porsche! Good grief girl, do you want to win this thing or not?

sheesh... it never ceases to amaze me how dumb some of these people can get with people they 'think' are their 'friends.'

Sharon

Ninboh said...

@Sharon, Rachel can't play in pt 2. But if Porsche wins and then wins pt 3 as well, Rachel will want to be taken to f2. it's a good move for Rachel IMO.

Anonymous said...

I'm wondering if BB will actually use the Morph comp this late in the game. But if that one is Part 2, then I think you're right, Rachel could give Porsche some help. But what if BB decides to use it for Part 3 instead?

Then again, it would be kind of funny if BB decided not to use the Morph this year, and everyone has been studying that wall for no reason. LOL

If Rachel wins Part 3, it's hard to know if she would do better with the jury vs Adam than she would vs Porsche.

Ed in Ohio (10:19) - What say I take your odds and put a buck on each one of the houseguests? The worst I could do is break even!

Joe in NY said...

LMAO If every contest were endurance, Rachel would clean the floor with these guys. Ever since Jeff left there hasn't been any real competition in that department. Really weak group of competitors in the final 6.

Oh, well. It's all down to questions now.

It will be interesting to see who takes whom. I would have to think that Adam feels Rachel is his best bet He could split the vet vote a bit since he was so close to J/J and he knows how much Dani's crew hates Rachel. I would also think that Porsche might feel Rachel is her best bet.

Lorraine said...

One of the first things I thought of this morning is "What happened to that dress Jordan was going to wear?" Probably like BrendonBlows said BB wanted her to wear athletic gear. Bummer because it looked to be a pretty color.

I'll be glad when BB is over and I get back to my regular life.

RBennie said...

I don't know what happened to me last night, but I totally spaced on BB. I think the president's speech threw me off kilter. I started watching Rookie Blue and forgot all about BB! I will have to find it online today. Not at all surprising that Rachel won the endurance comp. I hope Porsche wins the second round.

chacha said...

Glad Rachel won the first part HOH...
caght up on the show after the game. Still love my SAINTS...

I happened to go to CBS.COM to see about Adams blog and saw a cute video from the Jury house. It was arts and crafts time. Very funny.
Gotta love Jeff

It will be interesting if its Rachel and Adam in the end who Jordan will really vote for.
I know Jordan loves adam but in reality she really needs to vote Rachel for the win.
SHE HAS ROCKED. totally deserves the win this year.

ORKMommy said...

Part 2 is usually timed comp of some sort, like the morph. Part 3 is the questions.

From the moment Dani targeted Brendon over Rachel, I thought it was a huge mistake. They should have gotten Rachel out first like they did last year. These silly hamsters totally underestimated her! I still don't want her to win because of the money reasons I've stated before BUT she sure can play the game. She's like the Wicked Witch of the West to Janelle's Glinda!!

chacha said...

Ninboh-
When I saw the pool at the beginning of the season I wasn't to happy with my player.
The first few weeks i kept saying I want rachel gone even though she is my pool pick.
Since Brendan left(the second time) I have been pulling for her and Jordan. Now its down to Rachel..
Jordan is right they do balance each other out.

TeamRachel said...

What will be mighty interesting, to me at leaat, is IF the F2 is Adam vs Rachel .... who does Dani vote for? She (Dani) has said repeatedly in the jury house what a HUGE floater Adam is and she despises Rachel (who in her goodbye message took Dani down a notch or two by calling her out, IMO) So will she be a/the bitter biotch and vote for Adam (which validates Rachel's comments about her as well ) or since she is allegedly "all about the game" does she vote for Rachel, the true competitor??????? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.............

Anonymous said...

Last night's comp confirms Porsche's mistake in not evicting Rachel. Porsche would have beaten Jordan in that comp, and she would have been the favorite for HOH. Now, Rachel is the favorite, and Porsche is probably on her way out.

Joe in NY said...

anon 11:41 - Not really true. That exaggerates the importance of last night's comp. Porsche only has to beat Adam in Part 2 to end up in Part 3 anyway. Porsche also knows that Jordan likely takes Adam to F2 whereas Rachel might well take Porsche to F2. So in many ways, even in getting to F2, booting Jordan helps. And booting Jordan definitely helps in the F2 as there is no way Porsche beats Jordan with the jury.

Sally said...

I don't know if the HOH competition will follow the same format as last year, but here's what they did for BB12:

The first part of the final HOH was swinging-on-vines endurance (Hayden beat Lane and Enzo). The second part was the photo-morphing (Lane beat Enzo). The third part was questions about the people on the jury (Hayden beat Lane). Hayden evicted Enzo and won the jury vote 4-3.

monty924 said...

Last season was the first season they did the morph in Part II of the HoH. All the seasons before was some type of skill/put these things in order, etc. I remember Janelle and Maggie had to line up past BB winners, Janelle and Boogie did that too but up in the air, Dick and Dani had that water maze/puzzle with HoH and Veto winners, Memphis and Jerry had the Boxing Knock down thing with HoH and Veto winners and they are always timed. I'm thinking since they did not do the morph this season it will be that.

The funny one was S9 when Sheila and Ryan had the hamster wheel. That was hilarious since so many blogs call them hamsters.

The Dani vote will be interesting if it is Rachel and Adam. I think she would vote for Rachel. She's had enough time to decompress. Unless of course, Dani asks Rachel if she still doesn't want her vote and Rachel goes 'all Rachel' and tells her she doesn't, LOL.

Anonymous said...

Joe – It's really true. Porsche lost control by not evicting Rachel.

In HOH comps, Porsche would have beaten the coaster Jordan and sent her to the jury, and then Porsche would have won $500K over the floater Adam.

This way, Rachel should beat Porsche in round 3, and then probably send her to the jury. If Rachel keeps Porsche, Porsche loses the jury vote.

Malik said...

I just watched the episode before this, after I stopped watching, because of the obivious disadvantage for some players...

I must say, I am SOOOOOOOOO glad Jordan is GONE! Jeff is a really sore loser, and a bully.

Kalia, seeled her fate when she voted out Lawon, and I read the Porsch picked pandora's box and gave the game back to the VETS.

I bet if one of the VETS get a pandora it WOULD not have an impact on the overall game.

Anonymous said...

I am not a Rachel fan, She really leaves mean good bye messages. I also dislike how accorrding to her she can cry but no one else can, because that makes them less of a player.
But once Brendon left her game did improve and Jordan kept her in check. Long story short WTG Rach

Witt said...

I'm pleased with last night's outcome...Rachel deserves this win. She's stuck with her alliance, been strong on strategy and has won comps when necessary. Has she won the most in the house this season?

Dani always said, she wanted to vote for someone who played the game. Even though personally she may not like Rachel, I think she may respect that she played the game and go with that.

Hi Peeps,
Who do you think is going to be America's favorite player?

Who will win Miss Congeniality?

The question, and the answer, is a no-brainer!

Sad Jordon is gone. Hope Jeff wins fan favorite and I think Adam is a weirdo. At this point I hope Rachel wins and wins BIG!

I agree that Adam is the biggest whimp ever on BB. I agree the chicken man was more manly than Adam. Please don't let Adam win and never pick him to return to BB
