Days 15-18" - July 17
Last time, Lori and Holly were marked. Well, Lori was
marked, Holly just served as pawn. Lori is taking it
hard, having stemmed it from taking the $10,000 on day
one. Marvin cited Lori's greed and Holly's influence on
Jase as the reasons for his nominations. Diane and Will
have a switch in mind, making everyone think that Holly
is safe, when they will take her out.
But, and I cannot stress
this enough, will it work? Holly says she's gunning for
the veto. "I think it's a 50/50 chance I could go home
next week." That gets Cowboy to rally up the Horsemen to
discuss why Holly thinks that she's the next to go.
Scott lashes out Michael (physically) for not
controlling her sister and Marvin (mentally) for not
putting up Diane. Prompting Michael to go to
Jennifer and tries to swing her to the Horsemen's
side... and she's not having it without an explanation.
"At all. At all."
Generals Will and Karen
plan Operation Security Blanket: All they need is one
vote to keep Holly in the house. Bring together the
false sense of security, and then take it down. Will's
convinced that this will go down as one of the greatest
gambits in the history of Big Brother. Lori wants to win
it. Holly wants to win it. Will thinks that they're
beating them at their own game, and Drew's beating up on
a punching bag for some reason... much to Diane's
delight. "I've never seen such a beautiful man." "He's
like the most perfect boy ever made." Fawn fawn... Swoon
swoon. The ladies vow to keep him around simply because
they think he's hot (and by the ladies, I mean the
ladies... and Will).
Cowboy eyes Marvin...
but not for a booty call.
Diane thinks that Scott
could be the biggest ego trip ever as she tries to fake
her way toward genuine concern for Holly's pending
eviction. On the other hand, Scott plainly states... "I
just don't like her." There's 'bout to be hell up in
this piece, especially given the fact that Scott just
called her "Trailer Trash". She rushes to the backyard,
where Jase and Holly comfort her... and Marvin can hear
Scott's rebuttal: "If
you talk, you gotta face the consequences." No, Scott.
If you talk, other people have to listen.
Next day, Scott does
something stupid... again. This time, with a treadmill
and two tubs... and a golf club... and the punching bag.
Oh, did I mention that there was streaking? And farting?
Man. He's a one-man episode of "Jackass". And, of
course, since he's a pretty boy, he looks at himself...
And while Scott does all
this, Nakomis plays the Goth Kid card in defense mode,
face down, as Karen stresses that she's the only one she
can talk to. She flips her card face up and says that
she couldn't really chill in the same room with just her
and her half-brother. "The more he's influenced by the
guys in this house, the more I can't stand to be around
him. My family and I are proud people We don't kiss
butt!" So much for the hidden alliance.
That night, Lori does
some thinking on her own, coming to this conclusion: "I
really think I want to go home." Karen complains in the
Diary Room that she won't have anyone to play the game
with a level head with... Uh, hello... Goth Kid? Lori
starts spreading the news, while Will can't keep his
head out of the game. The girls (sans Lori) decide that
a) Holly goes home on Thursday, and b) Lori needs to
shut up. Me? I reverse it, and I'm happy.
Doesn't take much for
Lori to change her mind as she is convinced by Karen
that they have the votes needed to keep her in the
Next day, Adria's butt
is solid. That it is. Everybody loves her. Seriously. If
it wasn't for the whole age/marriage thing, hell I'd go
after her... or her sister, which she now meets in the
diary room. We're about halfway toward part two of
Project DNA, and Natalie enters the house.
returns with the news of the Veto Competiton. Players'
choice: Marvin chooses Drew, Lori chooses Karen, and
Holly chooses Jase. Everyone else... doomed. Will will
Snag the Veto
Simple enough. One long
rope with one big snag. Unsnag it, snagging the veto
medallion on it. Person who does it first wins the Veto.
It's men versus women versus Marvin. Winner... Jase.
Told you everyone was screwed. Except for Holly, of
course. Jase, you have the Power of Veto... use it
wisely. Use it to save Holly and put another woman on
the block. Not the most glamorous of game strategies,
but let's call a spade a spade here. You and your boys
are endangered. And Karen is pissed about it, because
now her and her boys are endangered.
Scott and Jase go off to
discuss how they will use the Veto. Natalie follows,
posing as her sister. She catches wind of Jase's intent
to split up the ladies, mainly because he TELLS her. But
then again, it's Marvin's final decision, so it's off to
the HOH room the Horsemen go. Marvin agrees to save
Holly for Karen, and the plan is go. "It's up to me to
piss somebody else off, but that's part of the game."
Karen's having a
headache. "Where did you FIND these people?" she asks,
mocking Hollywood, Jase, Scott, and Marv. My guess, she
won't be pissed because she's up on the block. She's
Jase tells Holly that
she's not 100% safe. You save the present at the cost of
the future. My God, Holly is actually thinking about
this. He stresses that Lori has allies in this house.
She thinks that him not using the veto is a better
option. Hmmm... does he want to win or does he want to
He won't use the veto.
At least that's what Lori hopes, because the vote is
split down the middle. Karen plants the seed of doubt
that Jase may be targeted should he use the veto. Jase
and Scott discuss this new revelation, and they think
that they should keep Holly in the house for as long as
they can... "One more week, dude."
That night, hair issues.
Nakomis always wanted a mohawk, so why the hell not?
Holly suggests that the entrails be donated to... the
term Holly is looking for is Locks of Love. Not a bad
idea. Wish I had the hair for it.
The next day, it's veto
time, as Jase thinks about his final move. I'm looking
for Jennifer's mohawk... and that is the saddest mohawk
I've ever seen. That's not even a mohawk. That's a
mullet. Dude.. if you're going to be a cat... be a
tiger. After hearing final arguments from Lori, who
understands why she's there, and Holly, who doesn't want
to see this "friendship" split apart... Jase elects to
VETO Holly's nomination, thereby pissing Marvin off (he
wanted an ass out of the house). In her place, Marvin
marks Karen for banishment. Well either way, he gets
what he wants. Ass goes home next time.
Blanket... BIG FAILURE. Thursday, either Karen or Lori
will leave the house forever. The other will have a big
ass axe to grind.
And before we go, here's
my best Karen... *goes into a throttling seizure*. Eh?
