Gamechangers: Days 13-14
Last time, Ronnie got used to life as HOH,
just as all of the cliques were reaching breaking. He's playing both
sides of the house, and both sides are out to make him a target.
Meanwhile, Casey and Chima, who don't care for each other, won the right
to go see "The Ugly Truth". After receiving passionate pleas, Ronnie
decides to put Jeff and Laura for eviction... with a secret plan in the
pocket to backdoor Russell.
Laura blames Ronnie for her current
state... as much as she blames herself. Ronnie went into this with her
as a target, but if either her or Jeff is vetoed, there is always
Russell. Laura says that she knows how to beat Ronnie. Jordan, on the
other hand, is upset as the prospect of losing one of her friends.
Jeff says that Ronnie is playing this
game to the hilt. He gets told of Ronnie's plan. Jeff doesn't want to
hear it. Ronnie goes to Laura about the plan, with the hook that perhaps
BOTH nominees can stay. Laura's hoping to give him a dose of his own
medicine. Laura has one of her own. Keep your friends close and your
Russell's alliance has become very
cliquish, but he's been the constant line of communication with the
other's alliance. The less friends you have, the less advantage you
have. To that end, Russell invites the others to a drink under the
stars, just as a break from the game. Then goes back into the house,
asks what's being talked about, gets answered by Lydia, who's not even
in the room... and... a shouting match occurs.
Natalie tells Jessie that Russell needs
to go before he explodes. As long as he wins, the athletes win, but at
the same time, he's a loose cannon. Jessie still sees it as an asset,
because "he's going to go home before me... fingers crossed."
Lydia seeks comfort in Ronnie. She wants
to backdoor Russell. So does he and Kevin.
Next day, Jordan doesn't know how to tell
time. "A quarter 'til 7:45." She thinks that there are 25 quarters in an
hour. There are four. Okay, Jeff, help me. There are four quarters.
There are sixty minutes in an hour...
While Jordan's trying to count with her
fingers, the houseguests that won the Challenge on Sunday's show...
Casey and Chima... they're going to go see "The Ugly Truth". And the
ugly truth is... they can't stand each other.
Remember, that's "The Ugly Truth", coming
to a theatre or drive-in near you. *cha-ching!*
Playing for a veto! We have Ronnie, Jeff,
Laura, Russell (D'oh!), Natalie (D'oh!), and Casey. And the host... the
PoV COMPETITION: Change You Can
At the Big Brother Mint, there are
pennies, dimes, nickels, and quarters. Big Brother will ask you to
collect a certain dollar amount. You will have two minutes to collect
your change. The coins will be counted via the Mint's Coinstar machine
*cha-ching!*, and the player with the furthest from the target will be
eliminated. The winner will have a choice to make... There are three
bags containing $5000, a slop pass, and ... nothing. If you choose a
bag, you'll get the contents, but you'll eliminate yourself.
First, Big Brother wants $100 in
Natalie: $560.50 (+$460.50)
Russell: $179.25 (+$79.25)
Casey: $161.50 (+$61.50)
Laura: $343.50 (+$243.50)
Ronnie: $607.75 (+$507.75)
Jeff: $87.50 (-$12.50)
So Ronnie is eliminated, and Jeff has a
choice to make. Ronnie swears he didn't throw it, he's just... stupid.
Jeff decides to stay in the game.
Big Brother wants $75 in dimes.
Natalie: $16.90 off
Russell: $32.80 off
Casey: $20.30 off
Laura: $269.80 off
Jeff: $5.80 off
Laura's out, and Jeff gets another
decision. Jeff keeps his eyes on the prize.
Big Brother wants $40 in nickels.
Natalie: $5.65 off
Russell: $15.55 off
Casey: $21.40 off
Jeff: $7.35 off.
Casey's out, and Natalie gets the option.
She ... wants a bag. Taking #1, Natalie wins... SLOP PASS.
Finally, Big Brother wants $10 in
pennies. Moment of Truth...
Russell: $8.59 (-$1.41)
Jeff: $10.97 (+$.97)
And Jeff wins the Power of Veto.
Ronnie, Lydia, Chima, and Kevin meet to
backdoor Russell. He pulls the trigger, no matter what, they can't go
back. It's the chance to do what's right. Laura decides to give Ronnie
whatever he wants to stay in the game. If she gets saved this week, then
she promises not to put that group up. But he still needs to have the
votes to get him out.
Natalie... may go this route. Jessie...
wants to know why. He will support it, but if that's how everyone feels,
then so be it. Chima doesn't like missed opportunities. Jessie thinks
that this is going to be a mistake. Laura will lie to your face again
and again and again... Ronnie says that if you put the wrong
person up, you may find yourself evicted. He doesn't want to think that
next week, Russell will backstab him.
AMERICA'S VOTE: HAVE or HAVE NOT:
Which food items would you like to give to the have-nots?
1) Sauerkraut and seaweed
2) Cabbage and cocktail weenies
3) Pickled eggs and pickled herring?
Text your vote to 81818. Standard text
message rates apply.
Meanwhile, it's time for the Power of
Veto. Jeff would be crazy to not use it on himself.
... and sure enough, he uses it to save
himself. Ronnie counters by nominating JORDAN. Why? "Everyone likes her,
meaning that everyone will want to evict Laura. AND Laura is a lot
smarter than pepole give her credit. Jessie is correct." Which means
that LAURA and her will be competing for the votes of the fellow
houseguests Thursday, LIVE.
