So then Julie breaks the news that it was a 2-1 vote and Shelly's evicted. She hugs everyone, telling them all "good job" and heads out. Inside the house, there's a lot of talk of the number five and a long, long shot of the fish tank.
Out in the studio, Julie's first question to Shelly is, "What do you think went wrong?" Uh, everything Shelly did since week one? Shelly says she tried to make a big move last week, and Julie asks why she did it so early. Shelly thought that was her last chance, but now admits, "It wasn't so big." She still thinks that if she'd waited, she'd be in the final three with Jeff and Jordan and doomed to be out in the cold for the final two. Which is true, except for how she was never going to make it to the final three no matter what she'd done. Julie reminds Shelly that she's about to see Jeff again, and Shelly admits that she's worried, but wants to stay friends with him and Jordan, and claims she wouldn't have done it again. Which I'm sure would also be true if she were to win the half million. Julie reminds Shelly about how she said her daughter Josie's punishment for lying is to write sentences, and zings, "How big of a wall do we need for sentences for you?" Shelly starts to say something about adult decisions, but says Josie can pick the number. Maybe let Jeff or Jordan pick the number, because they probably can't count as high as Josie can.
Farewell messages. Adam says Shelly was a great player, but played herself out of the house. As opposed to Adam, who made the final five by doing nothing. Porsche says she doesn't know how the house will stay clean with Shelly gone. Kalia gives a heartfelt speech which she's probably rethinking right about now. Rachel says Shelly's ring isn't worth half a million dollars (which Rachel knows because she's engaged) and mocks Shelly for being evicted. Jordan talks about how Shelly opened her eyes, which is why she got so mad. "I never disrespect my elders," she adds, and concludes, "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me." I bet she gets shamed on a lot. Shelly has no regrets, because she was lucky enough to play the game at all (which wasn't what she was saying last week), and looks forward to seeing her family again, even though they're going to tell her she was an idiot. Julie reminds her she'll be back for the September 14th finale. I'm looking forward to that day too. But the day after that even more.
