"The Last Don Standing:
Days 6-9" -
The house was thrown into turmoil the likes of which
any normal person can live through as the houseguests
were informed that Michael and Nakomis were
half-siblings. Half of the house is saying "No way". The
other half - including Jase, still HoH - says "Could
be." Also, the hamsters unlocked the hot tub o' love for
the summer while making Southern California's largest
shelf rita, and Jase uses catgirl Jennifer to bump off
Mike in his nominations. We pick up at that moment.
"That was nervous-ing,"
Cowboy of the extraordinary grasp of the English
language says. Meanwhile Jase confirms my suspicions
that he only put Jennifer up to get rid of gamer Mike.
Jennifer: "I'm not worried about it anyhow." Scott,
Jase's co-horseman, literally pulls her aside to tell
her so. And already I'm beginning to see a Dynaman
revival with Scott, Jase, Drew, Cowboy, and Nakomis.
Meanwhile the Big
Lubinski is going around doing what he does best...
poorly. Mike tries to ream in Marvin, saying that it was
going to be him instead of himself that was put up. (X)
Will is next, as he gets the 411 on what Mike wants to
do. Will, on the other hand, knows that everyone wants
Mike gone. Will takes his story to the crowd outside,
while Mike soon follows suit. Everyone else wants to
distance themselves from the disease that is Mike,
because, as Drew put it, "if you talk to him, it's like
you're marked next."
And Diane, who did
consult with the Big Lubinski, was pretty close to all
that, but Jase decided to have her sweat it out. We may
have a first here, a person on Big Brother who actually
uses his brain for something other than keeping their
Next day, it's an
exercise in... well, exercising, in the backyard. Adria
starts and ab class, some of the Horsemen do push-ups,
and Marvin... watches. "Adria, we nicknamed her 'Big
Bootylicious', because she's well-endowed in the booty
department." Marvin, I don't think you're ready for HER
In the house, Mike
lashes out at Scott for holding an alliance that is
trying to get him out, even going so far as to say that
the two weakest players, Michael and Nakomus, are in
cahoots with them. Scott's response: "You're talking
(^_^) about everybody in here." Lori thinks that he was
being a sore loser.
Next day, it's storytime
with Hollywood, as she recalls changing in front of her
window. Oh wait, it was her mannequin, although at this
juncture, you could not really tell the difference.
Among other Holly revelations: when she was younger, she
thought that tartar came from eating too much tarter
sauce (I can understand that); she is an animal lover;
and she tried to hook her mannequin up with a friend's.
Hot fiberglass on fiberglass love...
Meanwhile, we have more
unauthorized brain usage, as Michael details to Jennifer
that they don't hang out as much as they should because
he doesn't want people to think that they're in an
alliance. They'll bond later, though.
Jase gets some
instructions on the Power of Veto challenge. This year,
it's a little different, as he (being HoH) and the
nominees compete with people of their choosing. As with
last year, each PoV this time is golden. If you're on
the block, and you don't need to be, you're going to
want to get your hands on this bling here.
Mike and Jase have it
out afterwards in the kitchen. Afterwards, Mike has a
pep talk with his presumptive partner Holly, in which
she is told to take a powder. Why? Don't know.
Meeting of the Four
Horsemen gazes upon Will, wondering if he's a) a ladies'
man or b) just really really effeminate. "He's not being
too gay for us to freak out." Gay card, Will... Gone,
because everyone (except Mike for some reason) figured
it out. But it's not like he fits the mold of a
stereotypical flamboyantly gay homosexual, so it's all
good. And of course, Mike, being the staunch
Conservative he is, goes into the current civil rights
issue of civil unions and marriages (read your local
paper on this one, folks. We're just here to cover a
game). But Will does call Mike an extremely intelligent
and articulate man. "His talk can match his walk." For
what it's worth, they have a strong rapport with each
other. That, in and of itself, is pretty cool. "We just
all have to be willing to stand in each other's shoes."
More PB&J, anyone? Not
after today if they win this next Food Challenge. The
challenge: read the card...
guests. You've survived your first week of peanut butter
& jelly. Enjoy... until the next food competition."
Needless to say, they
pretty much won that.
Meanwhile, Adria and
Diane are on the hammock talking about, sweet jeebus,
another girl power alliance. Basiaclly, if they can get
the guys to pick each other off for a couple of weeks,
then they can move in and take over. So would they pull
Will in or Nakomis? First case, it's inner man vs. inner
woman. Second case, blood or money? After all, it's a
competition, and to think otherwise would prove most
Next day, and Jase is
dramatic for a Power of Veto competition. Replete with
Zorro mask. Jase, Scott, Mike, Holly, Nakomis, and Drew
Ring toss with plastic
lawn flamingos. Zone one is the water flamingoes, zone
two is the left island, zone three is right island, zone
four is the far back island. They must ring a flamingo
in a more difficult zone than their competitors in three
tries. Drew gets in zone 1, but Mike gets in zone 3,
knocking him out. He calls out Jase, and he gets a
ringer. Holly (as instructed) and Nakomis get a ring....
Round 2, as Mike gets
another zone 3 ringer. Jase hits it at zone 4. Mike's
gone. Scott gets zone 2, while Jenn hits zone 1 (as
instructed). Jase eliminates Holly, until he draws
Scott. Scott nails zone 2, while Jase... misses. Scott
gets the veto. Just remember... power corrupts.
And the ladies are
capitalizing, solidifying their bond against the common
enemy... with a Y-chromosome. They draw Will into the
mix, as they plot to put both Jase and Scott up. But
where does Will fit in? "We'll take you and Drew as far
as we can." And we're back to being morons again!
Will and Drew go to the
HOH room, as they talk about the girl power alliance.
"We'll eventually become expendable to her." Jase came
in, Will comes out... Now it's all about "Four
Horsemen". Keeping it real... Keeping it together. Jase
weighs in in the Diary Room: "If you wanna pull that...
You gotta go."
Next day, Nakomis
changes up her hair. It goes from blue to green. She
wanted to go orange, but her stripper didn't take the
hair down to complete blonde first.
Speaking of stripping,
here's the veto, as the Horsemen gather to discuss
getting Diane or Adria out next. They discuss their
options, including taking Mike off and putting A up. In
the actual meeting, Scott elects... NOT to use the veto.
Looking at the weather report, it's still clear to
partly stupid... Or maybe not. If you were to take Mike
off and put up A, then you'd still have a gamer in the
house. Same with Nakomis. And with either A or Mike,
you'd have a chip the size of Cleveland to deal with.
Basically put, it boils down to one thing... "You shoot
the queen, you better kill her."
So who will get bumped
off first, The Big Lubinski or the Cat-Girl? Next time,
the first live eviction notice is served.
