"Round 1 Eviction
Night: Mike vs. Jennifer" - July 15
Last time, the ladies tried to set up an early battle
of the sexes. The men decided that they might want to
use the veto to stop it. However, wanting to get rid of
Mike even more, Scott decides NOT to veto the
nominations. That leads us to tonight... the first live
eviction. Time to activate the future Mrs. Les Moonves...
tron. As a reminder, Mike and Jennifer are marked for
before we give someone the royal boot, the second
wrinkle of Project DNA is revealed. Since day 2,
identical twins have been playing as one person.
Tonight, their identities are revealed as they switch
But first, Mike rallies
to save his hide from the wrath of the Four Horsemen.
Michael tells Jennifer that Big Brother is a mental
game, and that a sure out is trust in your alliance. The
half-siblings agree that each other is safe if they get
HOH... even as Will wouldn't mind seeing Jennifer leave.
Meanwhile, no one is
sure about Holly and Jase, a relationship that boggled
the mind. Karen and Lori decide to keep an eye on those
two. Could it be another alliance?
Mike, on the other hand,
thinks about a way to break up Jase and Scott. Lori and
Drew get the spiel on having to end their little love
fest. Mike's done all he could do at this point. The
next day, the Four Horsemen think that they can make it
to the end.
Back live, Julie checks
up with the houseguests. Michael thinks it's hard to
have his half-sister being up on the block, but is not
negatively swayed by the possibility of her being
evicted. Lori, the $10,000 girl, has a little regret
about forcing the others on PB&J for a week. Scott seems
to be high-maintenance. Just great, a summer of
Anyway, to voting. Mike
and Jennifer as nominees have no vote. Jase only votes
to break ties. Votes are cast in secret in the Diary
Room. Scott, Marvin, Holly, and Lori share their
thoughts before voting, but we do not see their actual
vote. Seems like Marvin is leaning toward Jennifer.
Michael and Jennifer's
parents react to Project DNA. "I want to tell Big
Brother 'thank you.' I have always wanted a son. I wish
I had known about him," Guy Dedmon says. "Big Brother
brought a part of life to Michael," Christine Lee
(Michael's mom) says. Reactions continue, as Guy thought
that he would be crushed if his offspring was sent to
fight and die. We see Michael and Jennifer's revelation
Karen, Adria, and Drew
cite the differences in Jennifer and the fatherhood of
Mike. No real idea about how they would vote.
In the HOH Room, Julie
and Jase describe the spy screen and why he showed it to
the Four Horsemen. Jase wanted to blow it for the first
six weeks, but as soon as he became HOH, he gave the
others some idea as to how he feels about them. If
you're up, you're evil. You must go. If you're not,
Will, Diane, and Michael
discuss their defenses in the Diary Room prior to
voting. Again, no direct votes are cast, which means
that this one was an open-and-shut case. Sorry, Mikey.
It is EVICTION TIME. Final words...
Mike: I don't have a lot
to say. I love all these guys. I hope I get to see them
Jennifer: If I'm outta
here, I want to meet up withh you again. Gotta hang out.
And now, the eviction.
After the result is read, the evictee will have one
minute to pack up his or her things, say goodbye, and
leave the house, never to return. Here's Julie.
"By a unanimous vote,
Mike, you are evicted from the Big Brother House."
"Somebody could've threw
me one vote!" The houseguests give the banishee one
final sendoff before he makes his stop at home base. And
the celebration begins... "So you guys wanna go bowling
Mike's a big fan of the
show, so why was he evicted? "I just think it was a
series of misunderstanding. I saw them as competition.
They see me like that." But he wasn't surprised, and his
heart wasn't in it after finding out how hard it is to
do. Best thing? "Probably Marv. Meeting him is the
Cue the "We're going to
miss you, Mike" montage, as Marv just puts it the best:
"Ain't no hanging chad here. You the one." He parts by
saying that Jase and Scott... the men to beat. Then
again, you talk to morons. But he did plant the seed.
Next up, HoH.
Julie will ask questions
about opinions of the houseguests. They must give what
they think the group will say. Houseguests who answer
with the majority advances. After one question, where
the house thinks Scott looks at himself the most, Will,
Adria, Scott, and Drew are knocked out. After the
majority thought they would like to receive
mouth-to-mouth from Drew (?), Diane is knocked out.
After the majority thought that Marvin hated PB&J more,
Karen and Jennifer are gone. Three questions, and no one
is gone yet, so we go to a tiebreaker: What is the total
numbers of yellow food balls grabbed in the Food Spiral
competition last week? Answer: 100. Marvin, with 81, is
the new HOH. "Right here, playa."
And now, the moment
you've been waiting for, as we see who are, as the
Japanese would say, nibun no ichi. The player
with the identical twin has switched places three times
already. Like the BB House, the twins live in total
seclusion and lives as the houseguests live. If they
make it halfway through the summer, then both twins will
move into the house full-time. Could it be Drew? Could
it be Diane? Could it be myself and D'angelo (my twin
brother) have been writing these recaps in tandem? Well,
maybe not, but playing in tandem is... Adria... or
should I say, Adria AND her twin sister Natalie. Hmm...
You know, I remember seeing an e-mail from the
gamemaster of GSNN, Jason E., foreshadowing this, citing
fitness magazine articles and pictures. I guess I owe
him a Coke now.
Adria and Natalie can
only share five key points with each other before they
switch. But there are some setbacks. Adria's mole and
Natalie's scar clash. The emotional bearing on Natalie's
shoulder may be too much to bear. All this while
switching hats and other... accessories. Adria now
awaits Natalie in the Diary Room. They are now 1/5 of
the way home. Adria makes her entrance as the
slightly-pudgier Natalie makes her exit. No lovey-doveys,
switch! Right now, dammit!
Oh, and did I mention
that Natalie has a bigger face? I guess I'm the only one
who noticed that. More twin shuffles next time.
