Watching Shelly continue her "formerly" winning ways, pleading her case to Rachel; Watching a brand new Rachel 2.0 senza Brendon alternately countering and flattering Shelly's gameplay, both ladies more-or-less giving true accounts of their season-long gameplay, starting to trust each other, telling each other just enough, but at the same time basically laying out all their endgame cards - Shelly admitting she has a F2 with Jordan, AND Rachel admitting SHE also will never turn on Jordan, (insuring Ms. Jordan a F2 no matter -- at least between the three of them -- who is there in F3, she's at the very least a 2nd place winner!) It was quite a fascinating talk. Shelly tried everything in this talk --trying to bash Kalia (which Rachel would have NONE of -- Rachel just does not bash HGs behind their backs OTHER than bashing their gameplay or their floating -- nothing beyond that.) Rachel absolutely nailed Shelly's manipulations, week by week telling Shelly exactly what and who she was conniving with, and telling her flat out that she played 100% the best manipulative game of the season, while at the same time telling her how she HATES that kind of manipulation, honestly admitting to Shelly that she herself is NOT good at manipulation, and that she knows she has a bad social game. Admitting their own personal weaknesses, they were VERY revealing about how and why they played the way they did --said with extremely honest personal insight. The ladies bonded - while still keeping distance between them - and it contained its own kind of cathartic drama -- beyond the often noisy drama, or emotional BB drama -- this was gameplay related drama, pure and BB simple.
And the punchine? Reading on updates, Shelly retrieved Rachel's toy dog that she had hidden and put it on Rachel's bed. (OK Shelly--haters, bring your hurricane anger at her at least down to a category 1 -- maybe even a tropical storm!!)
