Meanwhile, Kalia also knows that she is the only person who can protect the newbie alliance since Porsche can't play as outgoing Head of Household and Adam may join the veterans. Kalia also expresses concern that Adam might hold a grudge in knowing that she voted for him to leave over Shelly.
The task begins to move at a snail's past as the houseguests move through the sticky "glaze" pool. However, Rachel works out an approach to keep her clothes from getting wet as she knows that it will slow her down.
Adam is close behind Rachel but is unable to catch up, giving Rachel the Head of Household title for the week. Adam is disappointed but commends Rachel for "giving it her all" and vows to go back on her side in an attempt to stay in the house.
Kalia and Porsche describe Rachel's win as a "nightmare", since they know that she will most likely put them on the chopping block as they were responsible for nominating her last week. Kalia in particular seems concerned with what her fate in the house will be, expressing frustration that they almost had her out previously but now she is in control of who goes home next week.
Later, Kalia tries to apologise to Adam for voting for him to leave, though he privately confesses that he's not impressed by the situation and will remember the move. Porsche tells Adam that she is "excited" he is still in the house and the pair discuss the fact that only two competitions remain, trying to guess what will happen.
Rachel then shows off her Head of Household room but Kalia is sleeping, which Rachel remarks is all she's done for the majority of the competition. Adam also reveals that one of Kalia's nicknames is "koala" as she sleeps "almost 21.5 hours a day". However, she eventually wakes up and the group heads upstairs to check out the room.

She proposes that the four girls are the last standing, though Rachel claims that she wants to play with competitors and thinks it's a "travesty" that Jeff and Brendon are at the Jury House over some of the others.
Kalia also tells Rachel that she would take her and Jordan to the final three even if it meant making Porsche a casualty. Rachel understands that this week's decision is extremely important to her future in the game and admits that it's "so tough" to figure out the best move.
In the garden, Rachel and Jordan discuss what they'll do once they've left the house. Rachel begins discussing how she plans to get car insurance with Brendon, explaining that she has been in multiple accidents as she is a very "spacey" driver.
Upstairs later, it's Porsche's turn to come to see Rachel and ask what her plans are for nominations. Porsche offers to take her to the final three though Rachel shows reservations over whether or not she can trust her. However, Porsche privately admits that if she wins Head of Household next week, Rachel will definitely go on the block regardless of whatever agreement is made this week.
However, once she enters the room, she discovers that her "celebrity shopping spree" is with Jesse from Big Brother, much to her disappointment. Downstairs, the doorbell rings and in walks Tori Spelling, much to Adam's excitement. Rachel is upset that she is locked in Pandora's Box and won't get to meet Tori Spelling and doesn't seem to care about her shopping spree.
The group downstairs is treated to a shopping spree as well, though Adam claims that he "doesn't need anything" now that he's met Tori Spelling. In the garden, everyone is given three minutes to grab and wear whatever they can in three minutes, which they will get to keep. Rachel is devastated that she can't be out with everyone else.
After, Rachel laments that she only took sweatpants and t-shirts away from her time with "Mister Spectacular" and gets sympathy from the rest of the house. Adam in particular thanks her for allowing him the opportunity to meet his favourite celebrity.
He proposes that they all make it to the final three together but when Rachel admits that she is unsure what she's going to do, he says that he respects her decision. However, he privately confesses that he will tell her exactly what she wants to hear.
Rachel reveals in the diary room that while she's always wanted a true competitor to win the show, she realises that Adam is not a true competitor and that it may be advantageous to keep him around as he will be easier to beat in subsequent weeks.
She and Jordan then discuss what move they should make to assure that they will be the ones in the final two. Jordan says that she "refuses" to let two people in the final two who slept through the entire season and advises that they not get "tricked" by Kalia or Porsche the way that they were earlier in the season by Shelly.
At the nominations ceremony, Rachel reveals her decision to place Porsche and Kalia on the chopping block, saying that it was payback for them coming after her in the game. However, she wishes them good luck in winning the upcoming Power of Veto competition.
Big Brother continues Wednesday at 9/8c on CBS.
