Night: Ronnie vs. Lydia
Last week, the cliques were history and
the fate of the house hung in mystery. The mystery was soon solved as
Ronnie and Lydia were nominated. Now as the house divides itself along
the middle, the woman in the middle, Michele, chose to honor the
nominations and send Ronnie and Lydia to a power struggle that will come
to a head tonight. Or will it?
It's day 33 in the house, and allies have
become enemies and vice versa. As it stands right now, only Russell and
Michele are the only people safe. Michele thought that taking anyone off
the block means that Ronnie may not go home. Her, Jordan, Jeff, and
Kevin have the votes to kick him out. Ronnie suggests that her only
loyalty is to herself. Kevin tells Lydia that she has nothing to worry
about, and Lydia honestly wants to believe that.
Michele, meanwhile, talks about her brain
books. She is, after all, a neuroscientist. Russell thinks that they're
talking about something else... The truth is... they're talking... about
books. But still, he wants to know what's going down, so he talks to
Michele in the HOH room. Jessie, Chima & Natalie are the three to watch,
as their alliances are outlined. He says that it's hard to tell who's
telling the truth here.
Russell asks Jessie at what point did he
know that Chima was going to backdoor him. Jessie says that he's never
heard his name when talking to her. Russell sends for Chima to see if
that is true or not (with a warning from Natalie to play nice). She
wants to go grab Michele to clear the air. Michele says that that's not
true. We all know how "not true" that is in the form of a shouting
match. Russell thinks that Michele is lying. Chima thinks that Russell
is lying. And then... DRAMA in the backyard.
There's a new rat in town.
Time's running out for Ronnie to
capitalize on this. He needs four votes to stay. He has three. He's
hoping that Jordan will toss him a sympathy vote.
Speaking of which, Jeff's hoping to do
the do with Jordan tonight. And killing the mood... Ronnie. Yeah, that's
going to win you some votes, especially with some farting. Quote of the
night comes from Jeff. "Ronnie's trying to work on us, and I'm trying to
work on Jordan. I can't say the word, but he's one of those guys that
stops you from doing something with the lady. You know what I mean?"
Jordan just wanted to stay out of the way
of the DRAMA in the backyard. Michele says that the mood in the house is
very much divided. Jessie had to eat slop all week, a first in his two
years at the Big Brother House. Squid and squash... didn't help much.
Speaking to Russell privately in the HOH
Room, his emotions got the best of him earlier. It's week 4 after all,
and it's time for everyone to snap at the same time. Russell did
apologize eventually. How will he deal with the backlash? How well can
he adapt in this game? We'll see. One thing's for sure... he's very
loyal to both Jessie AND Jeff. He'll have to make a decision sooner or
And now, we're going to see who has won
America's Vote and the Power of Coup d'Etat. It is... JEFF! The
question, after Big Brother teaches him how to pronounce it.... will he
use it today?
NO. Which means that it's time for Ronnie
and Lydia to plead their cases. Lydia is appreciative of the friends
that she's made and tells everyone to use their vote wisely. Ronnie says
that this show is a dream come true for him. "Sometimes you have to take
a chance." He also says that he's tried to see the good in everyone...
except Michele. "You're quite possibly the worst human being I've ever
had the misfortune of meeting, and I absolutely feel sorry for you."
Good job, Ronnie.
The vote to evict this week is four.
Natalie: "I know it's a longshot, but I'm hoping for a miracle. I vote
to evict LYDIA."
Jessie: "Lightning didn't strike twice, but I still vote to evict
Michele: RONNIE (C-Note: and the sky is blue.)
Jordan's the decider...
And by a 4-3 vote, it's Game Over for the
gamer. "Remember, it's just a game. Play hard. May the best person win!"
The difference between Michele and Ronnie is that Ronnie was very loyal.
He did tell Michele that all she could do was vote for him and it was
water under the bridge. "I think it was a last ditch effort, and if that
didn't work, nothing did."
Back to the game. Over the last week,
America recorded advice to the houseguests. They had to hear said advice
all night long.
