There is far less for us to go on, but I think Shelly seemed VERY different in jury. She might’ve come off as elitist and prideful there much more than in the BB house. Not that I agree with that assessment of Shelly or her game.

When Shelly lost me was when she didn’t retreat when she realized it was the wrong time to try to talk to Jordan so soon after Jeff was gone. Explaining things to an angry or hurt child is one thing, but Jordan had shown in the past that she can look out for herself and if your intention was to offer the proverbial olive branch, and the ADULT you go to offer it to has no intention of taking it yet, you have to be smart enough to know it’s the wrong time and walk away.

Was it the right time for Shelly to try and talk to Jordan? No, probably not. But, to be fair, emotions were running quite high that night. Not just Jordan and Rachel but for Shelly as well. It's easy for us to watch and be backseat players and critique their every move, and say what we would have done but watching from the comfort of our homes and actually being in the pressure cooker are two different things.

And the attitude in jury was just more weight on an already-too-heavy heap for me. Shelly told Jeff, “I’m a lot smarter than you thought I am, huh,” and Jeff told her flat-out, “apparently not.”

Well, when you walk in, stressed and scared as hell of what Jeff will do to you when you get there, you have to be brave and defend yourself. She didn't back down and I am proud of her for that. Jeff did think that Shelly, or rather, everyone in that house were dumb as bricks. She merely let him know that she was smarter than he thought she was. Jeff saying 'apparently not' was just more evidence of his arrogance. JMO

xx * Louise, I completely understand what you are trying to say, but it is your defense of Shelly that I believe that people are taking issue with. This is
09/27/11 09:27 AM
xx * For Shelly, it all comes down to guilt by association, her decision to hang with the mean girls.

xx * Great assessment Louise, I agree with everything you say about Shelly, and its one of the reasons I liked her as a player. But I do disagree with..

xx * Well, he "kept them safe" long enough, he had fulfilled his role, and then it was time for him to go. He was more of a threat than an asset then. NT
09/21/11 05:48 PM
xx * All is fair in love and war... LOL NT
09/22/11 07:58 AM
xx * Yep! You don't get points for "being true to your BFFs" if you still get voted out before F2. The name of the game is "don't get evicted". NT
09/23/11 10:44 PM
xx * Very very well said! Thanks for taking the time to share it! NT
09/20/11 02:36 PM
xx * One other thing I have to say, When Shelly said she heard Jordan and Rachel calling her a bitch, that was NOT true, Shelly was spying and listnening
09/18/11 09:00 PM
xx * She obviously didn't hear it correctly and truly felt it was about her, hence, the hurt feelings. Do you have a FB date and time? TIA. NT
09/19/11 07:41 AM
xx * Louise, I have it somewhere, will check & post, but look down...Shelly tweeted about your post on here! She loved it!!!!!! NT
09/19/11 11:15 AM
xx * AND Shelly is referring others to this post to defend herself. PPL are really mean-twitter haters now. NT
09/20/11 08:33 PM
xx * These haters are unbelieveable. Everyone else has let it go, why can't they? NT
09/21/11 06:10 AM
xx * I see a few problems with this theory, Jeff was the only competitor of the 4 that could win physical comps, that is why they should have protected him
09/18/11 08:48 PM
xx * Actually, I don't think Shelly was going to vote for Dani to stay
09/19/11 05:20 PM
xx * Thanks to whomever linked to this for Shelly to read on her Twitter, maybe it will bring Shelly to start posting on JU! Shelly, you have lots of fans
09/18/11 07:48 PM
xx * Yep, Grod-dora's Box is what killed Shelly's game, not anything Shelly did. A good BB player knows you have to play Production and America too. NT
09/19/11 01:21 PM
xx * Just wanted to let you know....Shelly herself replied....Tweet inside:
09/18/11 08:26 PM
xx * Thanks Louise for the best thread I've read all summer. I think you are spot on about Shelly. Despite her vote for Rachel, Shelly is still my fav NT
09/16/11 02:54 PM

09/20/11 06:31 AM
xx * Ugh no, Shelly wasn't the cause of her demise. AG and a mad dash to save Jordan after her gameplay failed took out Shelly. NT
09/18/11 07:41 PM
xx * What makes you so sure Jordan would have left instead of Rachel? NT
09/18/11 08:30 PM
xx * That POV was Rachel's to lose, and sure enough, she won it! And saved Coattails Jordan in the process. NT
09/19/11 01:22 PM
xx * oh! Can't wait to read this :) Thanks! I had a couple issues with Shelly, but I'm so glad someone showed up to show what BB is really about for me. NT
09/14/11 11:11 PM
xx * wow. 9 parts? U took in-depth seriously. I was a Shelly fan. The turning point for me was not the flip
09/14/11 05:04 PM
xx * archer I also remember that and was really surprised that she felt it was her place to suggest/imply that NT
09/14/11 06:01 PM
xx * OK So I am not able to find this in flashbacks, do you know when this happened? I do remember a talk
09/14/11 05:58 PM
xx * Was this the convo in flashbacks Aug 17 @ 10:32am? NT
09/14/11 05:36 PM
xx * It wasn't this one... NT
09/14/11 05:53 PM
xx * BTW... outstanding postS... NT
09/14/11 05:17 PM
xx * I will have to re-watch that talk and get back to you. NT
09/14/11 05:12 PM
xx * TY... It did take me quite a long time but I poured over Flashbacks and episodes. It's like watching the whole season twice! LOL Kinda fun! NT
09/14/11 04:41 PM
xx * Great analysis, Louise. It obviously took a lot of time and a lot of thought to put this together. I really enjoyed it. NT
09/14/11 04:11 PM
xx * Wow, that was long, but it was a GREAT read. I wish people would take off their Jeff-n-Jordan-colored glasses and look at the situation clearly. NT
09/14/11 03:40 PM
xx * I thought Shelly's elitist game of Hubris was gawdawful & Jeff & Jordan were the only ones snowed by it! NT
09/15/11 02:15 PM
xx * Hmmm, I didn't think that Shelly came off elitist at all, quite the contrary. Very informal, homespun and folksy. And hubris? Not a word I'd pick. NT

xx * Shelly is a con-artist who thought she had the game "in the bag" the minute she walked in the house & she was WRONG. She played an obvi con-artist
09/15/11 02:14 PM
xx * Con-Artist? Hubris? Elitist? LMAO Shelly? Those are words I might use for Brendon & Rachel. Maybe even Jeff and Jordan but NOT Shelly! ROTFLMAO NT
09/16/11 06:45 AM
xx * Again, Shelly wasn't elitist, or really overconfident, which is what I think you really mean to say when you say elitist. Shelly...
09/15/11 10:46 PM
xx * I agree...
09/18/11 08:33 AM
xx * Talk to me about Shelly in the BB house contrasted with Shelly in the jury house if you see any differences.

xx * My responses are in bold...
09/16/11 09:23 PM
xx * I tend to agree with Louise on this, and the way Jeff has backpedaled in subsequent interviews reinforces this view. He seems to get it now. NT
09/16/11 10:58 PM
xx * Jeff's interviews ONLY reinforce him trying to HELP Shelly with the Nutsos that went after her. NOT a JJ fan either NT
09/18/11 10:45 PM
xx * J & J & S are friends! I <3 How they can let it go. Just game! J & J were mortified by the threats against S & her fam...genuinely cared. NT
