And the Winner IS RACHEL REILLY!

Rachel Reilly The Winner of Big Brother 13!!!

The Big Brother 13th season came to an end last night as Rachel Reilly was named the winner of  the 500,000 dollar prize.  The votes were cast by the 7 jury members and 4 out of 7 of them decided that Rachel was most deserving of the cash prize.  Big Brother house-guests Dani, Kalia and Adam voted for second place winner Porsche Briggs, who takes home the $50,000 cash 2nd place prize.

I have to say Porsche, while I liked the amount of cooking you did in the house, (was great to help the a first time blogger keep up), to win the game you must talk to people and interact with them socially and show them your personalty.   If you did, and your personality only goes so far, get some more and then use it to interact.

Thanks to all the House-guests for some great fun summer entertainment, and thanks to my readers for coming back again and again.  I’ll be here next year (or maybe cooking up something in the house! wink, wink! ) blogging again about how the Big Brother house-guests deal with being have nots’, eating slop, and America’s Choices!

Till Then!!!

Brendon and Rachel’s Big Brother Wedding

I had to mention this, although there was not much reception food.  Last night Rachel and Brendon exchanged vows in the first Big Brother Wedding.  It was very sweet, and its obvious that they do really have deep feelings for each other.   I have not been a fan of Brenchel over the past seasons of Big Brother, but I love love, and its such a beautiful thing to get a break from the game, and experience something kind sweet and loving.

I also have to compliment Shelly and her creativity in making the “white trash” garbage bag wedding dress.  It was actually quite nice, and Brendon’s Mock Tux was also something so creative and special.

Here is a quick “mock” page of photos.

I have to admit that I loved that Jordon caught the bouquet and Jeff the ace bandage garter belt.

If I would have had more time, I would have figured out a Slop Cake, or maybe even Slopatizers for the event.

Week 3 – America’s Choice Sardines and Seaweed

It’s week three in the Big Brother house and the house guests found out  that they would be treated to Sardines and Seaweed by Americas vote in addition to the regular Big Brother slop, spices and condiments they are allowed to eat when given the have-not designation.

First looks on the live feeds of the sardine and Seaweed treats!

The Have nots this week were decided as part of the HOH contest held live on Thursdays show and continued and won on the live feeds after the show.  This weeks have-nots are:  Jordon, Lawon and Brendon.  Rachel had two days left on her two-week slop penalty she accepted in a previous power-of-veto competition.  But as we go to press, that punishment will have expired.

The sardines and seaweed had a mixed reception.  Jordon does not like fish, and is not a fan of the treat, she resigned herself to eating slop for the week.  Lawon was excited and said he eats sardines quite a lot.  Brendon claimed to have been a sushi chef in the past, and thought out-loud that he might be able to create some sort of Japanese Cuisine.  We’ll see Brendon.. we’ll see.

“Inspired by sardines and seaweed, who’d a thunk it”.

The house guests were given a variety of ocean fare of the sardine kind.  They talked about Whole Sardines from Whole Foods, smoked, in tomato sauce, honey mustard, boneless and sweet & sour flavored sardines.  Fresh and in cans, there should be every-type of sardine available in that house.

The seaweed was delivered in the storage room, on a high shelf, in multiple green packages. The identified flavors were, spicy, sweet and sour, dried sheets and several varieties that came cold and in plastic refrigerated containers.

Shelly's Slop Oatmeal and Brendon's Sardines in Tomato Sauce

A cooking frenzy ensued in the house in the evening hours, and I managed to catch quite a few of the recipes that

Shelly, Brendon, Porche and Rachel were cooking up last night.

To begin with house guest Shelly, the  mother of Josie (she misses that kid something fierce and speaks of her often!) and eldest house guest this season.  Shelly has been feeding the house her slop pancakes all season so far.  This is what I could catch of her recipe

Shelly’s Slop Pancakes ( Voted the Best by the House)

Ingredients

  • slop
  • cinnamon
  • white sugar
  • milk
  • cocoa powder
  • vegetable oil
  • baking soda

Brendon’s Slop Pancakes (2nd Prize!)

Ingredients

  • slop
  • cinnamon
  • white sugar
  • milk
  • vanilla
  • olive oil

Porche’s Spicy Slop Chips (made to spread the sardine salad on!)

  • slop mixture
  • paprika
  • parsley
  • cayenne pepper
  • cumin
  • olive oil

These came out really crispy and everyone complimented her on them!

Up Next, my take on what to make with the have not foods, sardines and seaweed. 

It’s always my goal to make something from nothing, and don’t forget to make it good!

The Have Nots of the Week

Dom now evicted from the BB13 house, by a vote of 7-1

Last night was filled with excitement as Dominick was the 3rd house guest evicted from the Big Brother 13 house by a vote of 7-1.  The new head of household was decided on  mock-up skis and mountain in the back yard of the Big Brother house.

Big Brother HOH competition - Big Brother Mountain Skiers

Dani was able to hold out for her downhill victory after making a deal with the house labeled floater Kalia in the 1st endurance competition of the season.

House guests who were among the first four out were blessed or cursed with the contents of a “snowball” containing a surprise.  Adams luck ran out and he has to wear an elf-tard for the rest of the week.   Lawon, Jordon and Brendon picked curses and are slop eaters this week.  Jeff was the lucky house guest, and grabbed the 10,000 dollar cash prize.

The final moments of the HOH competition with the losers looking down and out

I’m not sure standing on ski’s for an hour an a half could really have been labeled as endurance and I long for the times of night long competitions of Big Brother seasons past where the challenges were unpredictable and actually required stamina.  I am not saying that Big Brother is rigged, but BB is certainly at work and continues to manipulate and deliver on the promise to expect the unexpected.

America’s vote on which food the have not’s will have added to their slop & allowed condiments will be revealed soon on Live Feeds and I’ll be coming up with creative ways to make things with them as well as reporting in on things the house-guests come up with using their creativity!
