Big Brother Recap: Pandora's Boxed Out

by at . Comments

Fallout from the shocking double eviction continued to play out on Big Brother Sunday night, with a rare look back at some of the events of the previous week.

We finally got to see the blowup that left Big Jeff so enraged at Shelly (whose family has been getting death threats over this) and earned him a spot on the jury.

That was just the first part of Sunday's episode, with the rest centering around the new Head of Household competition, and the return of Pandora's Box.

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

In a season that has lacked for excitement at times, CBS did the right thing rehashing the events that preceded Jeff's surprise ouster last week. Plus 5.

Minus 18, though, for Shelly's utter nonsense. It wasn't bad strategy to get rid of Jeff (far from it in fact), but her attempts to explain her side deals with other players just came across as disingenuous and ridiculous.

Plus 9, though, because this season certainly got interesting.

Minus 2 for Rachel dropping the f-bomb again. Fiance! Fiance!

Jeff calls Shelly a rat. Shelly likens herself to a horse. Expletives fly. Adam is somehow involved. This is getting ugly. Entertaining, though, so ... Plus 5.

Did Jeff come back at her too hard? Hindsight is 20/20, but had he let it go a little sooner regarding Daniele, he might have had a better chance of winning her back into his camp when he personally sat on the block. Minus 7.

Jeff was the glue of this crew. Him being gone means there is a complete free for-all for the $500,000, which is good, but far less stability, so ... Wash.

Plus 10 for Jordan absolutely EXPLODING at Shelly. Did not see that coming from Jordan. It was borderline uncomfortable to watch, but Shelly had it coming.

"I just don't want to deal with all this fighting." - Rachel. Wow. That's when you know it must be bad in there. Plus only 4, because she cry-bernated later.

Adam really is the definition of floater at this stage of the game. Minus 5.

Kalia's Diary Room visits are becoming increasingly cringe-worthy. Minus 6.

Porsche DOMINATED the snake eyes challenge to win her second straight competition. She's not smart, but no longer can she be called a floater. Plus 8.

Jordan and Rachel cry some more. Okay, pull it together girls. Minus 3.

Tempted by $10,000, Porsche decides to open Pandora's Box, which brings with it the return of the Duo Twist. Meaning if she puts up Jordan and Rachel, a single veto would save them both. As Dani would say, shocker! Plus 15.

Tempting as it is, Porsche should never have opened the box this late. Minus 24, because this close to the end, she held SO much power with so little potential for a big additional reward. Think about it! Worst. Game. Move. Ever.

At the same time, Rachel and Jordan acted like they won the whole thing, when they only caught a modest break. If Porsche nominates them, they still need to win the veto. And if they do, Adam is voted out. Life goes on. Plus 4.


Of the final six, who's going to win Big Brother?
