Days 34 to 36
Last time, Jeff received a mystery power
from America, the Coup d'Etat. He decided not to use it last week and
Ronnie was sent packing. Things went from bad to worse for Russell as
Chima was made Head of Household. Russell had to crawl back to Chima to
apologize, but in the end, Lydia and Russell were put up for nomination.
Lydia believes that Chima's real target
is Russell, but Russell believes that his alliance with her is null and
void. He believes that Lydia will be here for another week.
"Jeff, please go to the Diary Room."
"He's got the power." Jessie is
convinced. Natalie is convinced otherwise, because why would he use it
if he's not HOH? Russell decided to make a move on Jeff to try and ally
himself with him. Jeff says he'll take him down, but he's gotta trust
him. Meanwhile, Russell will try to mend fences with Michele at the pool
table. He says that Ronnie's remarks was not indicative of anyone in the
house. Then they go at it about her remarks suggesting that Chima is
trying to backdoor Russell.
So.. uh... that didn't work out too well.
Michele goes to hang out with Natalie &
Chima about the almost-ensuing shouting match, and they end up thinking
that the girls need to win this.
Then Russell calls her nuts and says that
Ronnie was absolutely right. "Russell is an expletive... Fill in the
Time to play the Veto! But first, we need
players! Remember, the winner of the PoV is safe from the Coup d'Etat.
Playing: Chima, Lydia, Russell, Natalie, Jeff (Russell's choice), and
Kevin (Lydia's choice). Hosting will be Michele. And that's the end of
the road for Russell & Jessie.
POWER OF VETO COMPETITION: Bacon and
Rescue your eggs from your coop by
navigating them through a chicken-wire fence. Cross your bacon slab and
place your eggs into your stand. A dozen eggs is a win, but if your egg
cracks, you have to start again.
Kevin scores his first egg first, while
Russell and Jeff are not too far behind. And it's starting to rain
feathers. While the three leaders have four (Russell, Lydia, and Kevin),
Natalie picks up her first. And Jeff's struggling to get his second.
Kevin's the clear leader. Lydia and Russell are not that far behind. Now
it's down to two with Russell and Kevin and the final egg.
And the winner... KEVIN! By INCHES!
Now Russell needs to come up with a new
plan. "It's just me against the world, baby."
Now we dance. Kevin wants to call a
meeting with Chima and Natalie. Kevin decides to think long-term. She
doesn't want Lydia to go home. Does Kevin create enemies by taking Lydia
off, or does he keep it on the low?
Russell decides to mend fences with
Jessie. He did make a deal with Jeff, but right now, Russell's willing
to do anything in order to stay in the game. Jessie's still worried
about the "magical wand power."
Jessie talks to Jeff about what Russell
said. Jessie says that Russell is not worth the trouble to save this
week. He gives the same spiel to Jordan, because they're a package deal.
It's consistently Russell lying. Jordan doesn't trust Jessie at all or
think that he has her best interest at heart. All they know is that it
Jeff & Jordan are talking about "the
wizard". Jeff says that Jessie is being nice to Jordan because he needs
the votes to stay this week. If Jordan gets HOH, Jeff suggests Natalie
A new day dawns, and Jessie's still in
the shower. And Chima's getting antsy waiting for him. And then she
calls Russell a terrorist. He calls her a racist. She says he's
terrorizing everyone in the house. ... Yeah.
Time for a break as the houseguests get
to watch "The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard." Chima, Natalie, Jessie,
Russell, and Jordan are going to be in the same room for two hours.
Hopefully they can stow it for a moment.
Meanwhile, Lydia says that Kevin is not
going to use the veto to respect Chima. Russell says that he would use
the veto on her. She tells Kevin on this as they head to the Green Room.
"If I wanted everyone to know about my plan, I would told everyone." He
says that he'll use the veto on her if she'll shut up about it, but the
long run plan will be better for her if she stays on the block.
Kevin gives each nominee a chance to
explain themselves. Russell doesn't expect the veto to be used on him.
Lydia says that it would be nice to use the veto on her.
Kevin ultimately decides... to use the
veto.... on NO ONE. He hopes that Lydia will forgive him in the long
So Thursday, it'll be LYDIA vs.
RUSSELL... unless Jeff decides to use the Coup d'Etat. We'll see what
