Big Brother Recap: Don't Let the Back Door Hit You on the Way Out

by at . Comments

Big Jeff is definitely in charge of Big Brother house.

Following Sunday's commanding Head of Household win, he proceeded to win the veto as well, leaving himself with all the options and all the power.

He acted like it, too, with a move that could come back to bite him, but more than likely defeated his opposing alliance for good. Only time will tell.

THG recaps last night's Big Brother episode below ...

Jeff Schroeder Picture

Whatever you think of him personally, Jeff is very good at Big Brother. His #1 achievement is what he did the previous 2-3 weeks, shoring up quasi-pacts with Shelly, Adam and Rachel. This gives him quite an edge. Plus 7.

Daniele, meanwhile, seems like a bit of a lost puppy when she's not in the driver's seat. Minus only 3, because she's quieter about it than Rachel at least.

Speaking of Boo-key's girl, Rachel is dead set on vengeance. Minus 15 for bad strategy, but Plus 5 because her attempts to bug Daniele do seem to work.

Plus 6 for Jordan's oddly sexy humilitard-removing striptease-thing.

Plus 7 for Jeff and Jordan's debate over how to pronounce "mischievous."

Man, Zingbot 3000's voice is so annoying, but it did have some good lines, and made everyone quite uncomfortable. Net positive, we'd say, of about Plus 6.

Even ZB was overwhelmed by the sheer amount of Rachel material. It settled with "Every other word is just the F-word! Fiance! Fiance! ZZZZIIING!" Plus 5.

Plus 3, because the Zingbot is actually less robotic than Porsche.

Daniele Donato Picture

Zingbot to Dani: "Do you own a car...or are you still riding on your daddy's coattails?!?!" A prescient zzzzzzing, because she looked lost this week, and you can't blame it all on the slop. Out of power, she just couldn't rally. Minus 4.

Okay, it's starting to just seem creepy. Go away now? Minus 4.

As soon as the veto competition was revealed to involve building something (a new Zingbot), you knew Porsche had no shot. Minus 9 for utter uselessness.

Even more useless? Her attempts to talk game! Minus 8.

With Adam and Shelly also tanking, it came down to Dani and Jeff, and the big guy won it going away. Plus 3 for backing up his savviness with results.

The true brilliance of Jeff is his ability to see - and play - all the angles. He took Porsche off the block and put up Dani while cementing his relationships with everyone BUT Dani and Kalia. Tough line to walk as HoH, but he did. Plus 10.

Can Dani get Adam, Shelly and Porsche to oust Kalia? She'll need to do stay, and her back is up against the wall. Don't count her out ... yet. Wash.

Tonight's episode is a double elimination, meaning if Dani/Kalia wins HoH, they could put up Jeff and Jordan. If Rachel wins, Dani and Kalia might be going home by 10 p.m. If Porsche or Adam wins ... LOL. Sorry, we tried. Plus 4.

EPISODE TOTAL: +13. SEASON TOTAL: +54.

Who's going home tonight on Big Brother?
