Big Brother Recap: Power of Veto Competition/Eviction/HOH Adam's Best Week Ever! Season 13, Episode 27

Five house guests remain in the Big Brother compound, and Rachel has just nominated Kalia, the chronic sleeper, and junk-in-the-trunk Porsche.

Adam, who is still hot and bothered as a result of his Tori Spelling visit, talks about how vital it is for him to win the POV this week. I'd like to just take a quick minute, if I may, to address the Tori Spelling situation. Is it possible that Adam is the only living, breathing human to idolize the least attractive, most annoying 90210 cast member in history? Everyone knows Donna Martin sucks. If I were Brenda Walsh or Kelly Taylor, I'd be PISSED. Anyway, I digress.

The backyard has been transformed into a nightmarish acid trip where sharks are talking and there are meringue pies everywhere. The shark sounds like a phone sex operator while explaining the object of the game, but no one can concentrate because they all think they're hallucinating this bizarre existence. The house guests have to use the shark's hints to anticipate the name of the pie he is seeking, retrieve it, and then present it to the shark. Jordan's the first to be out of the competition. "God I feel like such a loser!" she says. Guess what? You are! You may be a sweet little Southern gal, but you couldn't win a competition under pressure if your life depended on it! Rachel is the next to go, followed by Kalia, then Porsche. Adam wins and smokes his 500th cigarette of the day to celebrate.

We cut to the jury house and big gay Jeff is hosting a fiesta while wearing a floral headdress, sipping margaritas, and cooking steaks. The party comes to a screeching halt when Shelly enters, and Jeff confronts her about her ill-fated backdoor decision. They bicker and yell about a lot of things that are completely irrelevant at this point, as they sit on the couch like a dysfunctional reality television family and watch the DVD of the past week's events.

Back in the house, Kalia does her best to convince Adam to join the dwindling newbie alliance, as Porshe sits idle, staring blankly into her glass of wine. Kalia whines in the confessional, "I could sell water to a fricking well! I have the gift of fricking gab!" What is particularly ironic about this is that Kalia is a "writer" and the first lesson of Writing 101? Avoid clichés. Guess the cat got her tongue.

At the POV ceremony Adam (who is looking particularly slender these days), chooses to play it safe by sticking with the Vets, and does not use the veto. Since this is Big Brother in the fast lane, we find ourselves at the eviction ceremony five minutes later. Porshe and Kalia are decked in their Wednesday best, and each delivers an obligatory yet pointless speech, since we know the decisions have already been made well before this meeting. Adam votes to get rid of Kalia, which is countered by Jordan's sympathy vote for her to stay. In the end, Kalia is evicted by Rachel's unsurprising tie-breaker vote.

The psychedelic acid trip continues when the fortune teller giggles and howls and makes bad jokes about the evicted houseguests that were probably rejected one-liners the Zingbot chose not to use.  After a restless night's sleep, the houseguests (save for Rachel), play in another HOH competition based on the fortune teller's predictions from the prior evening. They'll vote "true" or "false" for each fortune, and will receive a point for each correct answer. The first person with the most points after six questions wins the competition.

Adam takes the win, releasing his mutant man-bear roar that we have all grown to loathe at this point. He double pumps the rock 'n roll hand gesture, and is then embraced by three marginally hot young chicks who probably wouldn't venture within 10 feet of him if this were real life.

Tomorrow...the nomination ceremony, followed by another Power of Veto. It's like Big Brother on steroids! Will Adam stay loyal to the Vets, or team up with Porsche to take on Jorchel? Let us know your thoughts!
