For the first time on Big Brother 13, a newbie has won the HoH. Kalia is queen, which means for the second straight week, the veteran power couples (now minus Brendon) are on the losing side of the house. And while some things change, others remain the same.
SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 13 spoilers.
The Have-Nots for the week are Jordan, Jeff, Rachel and Shelly, and they got Coconuts and Catfish.
The competition involved drinking disgusting milkshakes made from mixing different foods (like chocolate cake and sauerkraut, yum), which might explain why it left some HGs with a foul taste in their mouth, literally and figuratively.
The veterans are still taking a big beating, but it’s hard to feel too bad. For the first three weeks in the game, they controlled everything, had absolute power and didn’t care what anyone else did. But now that the shoe is on the other foot, they are complaining about how unfair it all is.
Most surprisingly, it’s not Rachel who’s crying all the time, but rather Jordan. Yes, the sweet southern girl has snapped and is angry with everyone in the house, whining about how mean they are and how she doesn’t want to put up with them. Since it was her decision to come back to play the game, I hardly have any sympathy. She also hits my biggest pet peeve when she and Jeff talk about how Daniele is a bad person outside of the house and how Jordan is good. Pointless moral superiority is something I can’t stand.
FUN FACT: Kalia makes five straight HoH wins for women this season, which is impressive. In seasons 3, 4, 5, 7, 10 and 11, there were only five female HoHs for the whole game, and there have only been two times where there were more if you don’t count dual HoHs.
Big Brother 6 (aka Janelle’s season) featured an impressive eight HoH reigns for women, as opposed to just five for the guys, and it also had an all-female final four. In every other season, there has been at least one guy in the final three.
Big Brother 8 (Daniele’s original season) had six female HoH reigns, including an impressive run at the center of the season where Daniele and Jessica traded off the title for four straight weeks.
