Redemption is a classic story arc in entertainment. Some of the oldest storytelling involves a character who experiences a major life change and vows to change their ways for the better. It is ingrained into our collective psyche to enjoy the idea that the person who reforms and repents becomes worthy of whatever reward they receive.
In that sense, the fan response to Rachel’s winning Big Brother 13 should be pretty easy to predict. People like a comeback story, and Rachel has certainly filled that quote. From the time she was split from her fiance, she became a new player. That person, the Rachel that won Big Brother tonight, had managed to do something that few thought possible at the start of the season- she redeemed herself.
Here we go, it all winds to a close tonight. Was it a good year? Ratings think so. From the comments I’ve read among all of us here at BB Chatter, it seems most people agree. Though we were a little unsure about the concept of veteran against newbie, somehow it all worked out to be an entertaining season. Perhaps it had more to do with the mixture of personalities, or maybe it came down to certain house guests who could make any cast watchable, namely Rachel. She was evil when evil made sense, and good when the house needed calm. She, as I wrote early on, knew how to go with the flow. Will it get her into the final two? Unless Porsche’s been yanking our chain, I believe it will.
With the end of the season nigh, events in the Big Brother House are speeding forward. This week was no exception, and fans of the show and feeds saw major events happen in the span of two days.
The end of the week saw two evictions, Kalia and Jordan. In both cases the writing could be seen on the wall, but in one case the writing was apparently not in a language the extremely verbose observer could understand. In the other, the writing had been there and read thoroughly for weeks.
This summer is, I’m sure, the best of Adam’s life. He met Tori Spelling, stepped foot in the Big Brother House, and during the second to last Head of Household competition secured himself a spot in the final three. He proved himself a player during the competition, not getting a single true/false question wrong. He said it was his competition to lose, and he made sure he didn’t.
In the final Veto competition of the season, Porsche came out on top, earning another win for her BB resume. On the block with Jordan, it was no surprise that during the live show she used the Veto on herself, with Rachel automatically replacing her.

In the Final Veto competition of the season Porsche came out on top, earning another win for her BB resume. Though we don’t know for sure who Adam nominated (though all signs point to Jordan and Porsche) by eviction time on the live show it will be Rachel and Jordan on the Block, with Porsche either having used the Veto on herself or not having used it at all.
Porsche will be the sole vote for eviction tonight, so things are looking good for Rachel, who she has been friendly with (most of the time) during the game. Jordan has never been close to Porsche and voted to evict her, forcing Rachel to break the tie and evict Kalia. Though Jordan seems to be an easier competitor to beat in the final HOH, her lack of a relationship with Porsche will most likely send her to the Jury house.
Porsche has had an alliance with Adam since the beginning of the game, and is probably counting on that, along with her friendship with Rachel, to lead her to the final two if she doesn’t win the last HOH herself. It’ll all go down live tonight, when our Final Three will be revealed.
