Back to the living room. Shelly makes her speech first, talking about what a crazy week it was, then moving on to the nice things people have been doing for her all week. Brendon gives a shout-out to his UCLA department and cancer research (which I wish he'd get back to already) and reminds them all that as the first juror, he's going to vote for the strongest competitor. Finally, to Daniele, he Jerrys, "You will always be Judas to me." Julie reacts like she doesn't remember that at all, which she probably doesn't, and says it's time to vote. Rachel votes first, because her decision is the least suspenseful. Sure enough, she votes to evict Shelly, "unlike the other cowards in this house." Thanks for giving it away. The second-least surprising vote is from Kalia, voting to evict Brendon, and we leave it on a 1-1 tie before we find out what Jeff and Jordan decided. Find out from them, I mean.
After the ads, the voting continues, and Porsche votes to evict Brendon. Adam votes the same way, as does Jeff, so that's Brendon's third (and let's hope final) eviction. Jordan goes through the motions of voting Brendon out as well. Back in the living room, Julie tells Brendon he's been evicted 5-1. He gets up and says goodbye to Rachel, saying he's used to this now. Rachel acts strong, saying she's here to fight and win. I'm sure she'll do one of those things a lot.
Brendon exits to a very excited crowd, loud enough for them to hear inside the house. Once Brendon's set up with Julie, she asks if Brendon would have kept up their end of the deal if Daniele had kept hers. Brendon gives the non-answer that he and Rachel were playing on their own. But their next move is for Rachel to win HoH and mess with everyone. Solid plan. And if that doesn't work, she'll keep sucking up to people. I think Brendon just made up that backup plan sitting right there.
Farewell messages. Daniele says, "I swear to God, if you come back again, I might have to evict myself." Kalia says she doesn't know why America voted him back, "But the good news is you're leaving. FOR GOOD!" Brendon just shakes his head at how much more petty and immature than him everyone else is. Jeff promises, "I'll look after Rachel for you as much as I can stand her." Brendon keeps shaking his head until Jeff remembers to tell Brendon he loves him. He's probably still a homophobe. Rachel acts strong and brave, even going so far as to say, "Don't hate because I'm gonna make it farther than you did last season." Brendon tells Julie that she'd better. She won't. Brendon says it sucks being evicted twice, "But I get to decide who wins half a million dollars." Yes, all by himself. Or at least he thinks so. If nothing else, he probably figures he can browbeat and intimidate the other jurors into agreeing with him. Which is pretty rich, considering he's so popular that he came in ninth and eleventh in this game. Add those numbers together and he's the first person in history to come in twentieth.
