So far, 16 people headed
into the House, and we have a battle of the competing
alliances, with Da'Vonne and Audrey vs. James and Jason.
The catch? Da'Vonne, Vanessa, Liz, and Austin are immune
from being evicted this week. And thanks to the Battle
of the Block, Steve & Jackie are nominated with James as
sole HOH. But it's all a plot to get Jace out of the
house early. So will this plan work?
It's now Day 7 inside the
house. Jason does the math, as he decides that they need
7 of the 13 votes to get Jace out of the house. James
decides to get Meg, Da'Vonne, and Audrey on board. And
maybe Clay, because he's a country boy like James. All
of them meet at the HOH room to solidify the pact.
And here's Jace streaking
through the backyard. Creepy. Austin tells Jace to calm
the bleep down... or at least get the HOH to do so.
Meanwhile, Audrey says "It would be a big move to
backdoor the other HOH." That is total BS, just to throw
Jace off the scent. Jace says he's comfortable with
James, Audrey, Austin, and him... which he names "Cloud
Town". He can say whatever he wants, but when the Veto
Ceremony comes up, his alliance isn't worth the time it
took to shoot that damned scene.
"TIME TO PICK PLAYERS FOR
THE VERY FIRST VETO COMPETITION FOR THE SUMMER!"
JAMES picks: Becky
STEVE picks: HOUSEGUEST'S CHOICE - Jason
JACKIE picks: John
And here's your host...
Da'Vonne figures that
sometime during the season there's going to be a
counting competition, so she's counting things. This is
what bored people with nothing to do do. She doesn't
trust Clay or Shelli after both called her out on...
whatever it was she was doing. Meanwhile, Jeff does
damage control. And Da'Vonne saw right through it. Clay
tries to make nice with Da'... poorly. Audrey acts as an
intermediary trying to keep the peace, telling Clay to
just admit what he said and apologize. "Even if it's not
sincere." So he apologizes... We'll see if he means it
later on. He probably doesn't. And now Audrey's on Da's
The next day... The
buckets of slop are back. As sole HOH, James has to name
the first four Have-Nots of the summer. They will endure
a week of cold showers, uncomfortable beds, and, of
course, BIG BROTHER SLOP. The Have-Nots: Liz, Austin,
Vanessa, and Da'Vonne. And the Have-Not room... the
dentist's office from hell.
ROUND 1 #PowerOfVeto:
Navigate the obstacles and dig through the nostrils for
gold nuggets with letters & points on them. You may only
bring back one nugget at a time. Highest point total
wins. But you only have 10 minutes to lock in an answer.
James: LIFEGUARDS (8)
Becky: CLOSEST (7)
Jason: ZONES (6)
Jackie: JUDGE (6)
Steve: TROMBONISTS (12)
John: BOOGERS (7)
Fun fact: Steve's a trombonist. Needless to say, he's
going to use it on himself. But we'll have to wait a
little while for him to make it official.
Fun fact #2, the longest
word in this type of challenge still belongs to Brendon
Villegas for "UNDERSTANDING".
Back to the blow-up
between Da' and Clay, Audrey is trying to mend the
fences. By dragging Shelli into the fold. And Jeff, who
calls Audrey "the biggest sketchball in the world."
... and in comes Clay and
Meg. Audrey's never seen this game before, hasn't she?
James is starting to have second thoughts about Jace...
in favor of Audrey.
ROUND 1 #VetoMeeting
Sure enough, Steve uses the Veto on HIMSELF. James must
now choose a replacement nominee.
James nominates: JACE
The pieces are in place
for a first-week checkmate. We'll see tomorrow who gets
the boot, and who's playing for two.
