After we learned who the Power of Veto winner was in the “Big Brother 13” house Sunday night, we quickly arrived at the all-important next stage — figuring out who would go up as a replacement nominee.
(Warning: the following contains spoilers.)
Adam won his first-ever challenge on Saturday, and it turns out that it was a close race. How close? It ultimately came down to both him and Jeff squaring off, and Jeff finally stepped down after being assured that he was not the target for eviction moving forward. (Jeff also won himself some cash as a result.)
With this action, Daniele pretty much was placed into a corner that backdooring Brendon was really her best option. It wasn’t sure that Jeff would have the votes to go home if he was the replacement, but it does appear (thanks to Jeff and Jordan’s close bond to Shelly) that Rachel’s fiance will go out the door for the second time. Unfortunately for Shelly, she’s not really in any position to campaign with her being stuck in isolation until late this afternoon. (However, it looks like she will get a phone call home at the end of it.)
The only downside from this challenge for Daniele comes via her Veto ticket — since nobody wants to have seven people squaring off for the Veto next week, she is pretty much going to automatically go on the block next week so long as Porsche and Kalia do not win Head of Household.
A new “Big Brother 13” episode will air Sunday night on CBS.
