"Eviction Night: Lori
vs. Karen" - July 22
Welcome back to the house... of love... Heh, yeah
right. It's day 21, and another live eviction is upon
us. As you know by now, the Four Horsemen are holding
all the cards, as they persuaded Marvin that somehow
knocking off Holly in favor of Karen was a good idea.
Julie, going from feeds
programmed into her metallic synapses, concludes that
the house is more divided than ever as the women fight
to keep their place AND get HOH. Once again, Marvin gets
the kick-ass award of the night AGAIN by detailing why
Karen is on the block with Lori. "Karen has been
campaigning to keep Lori in the house. Bet she ain't
campaigning to keep her in the house NOW!" Nope, she's
trying to save her own butt right now. But in outing the
Four Horsemen alliance, he's forced to rescind his
award, as he's now targeted for next week. Although
blind albino cavebats can see that the Horsemen are in
Jase says he wants HOH
next week, as Diane tells Marvin that he's marked next
week. "I wouldn't trust Jase as far as I can throw him.
As far as you can throw Star Jones after Thanksgiving
Day." Okay, he can have his kick-ass award back. The
girls plot to put Drew up as a pawn against Jase, while
the guys just want to knock off either Diane or Karen,
because for the most part, Lori is a sure thing to be
Is Lori right in
thinking that the house is a bunch of followers? Well
considering you voted off the only leader... Yeah.
But they still like the sub-Horsemen Cowboy and Drew. Or
at least Lori does... until the vote.
And Karen wants to go
home... again. And Lori wants to stay. But Karen doesn't
want Lori to stay, especially with all the defenses
she's putting up. Marvin says it best again... "All bets
are off on this one."
Checking in live with
the houseguests... They're fine. Jase was liquored up in
using the veto... Yeah. Holly thought it was nice...
Also... yeah. Will is surprised by the free time that
they have. Jennifer is bored to insanity... Well,
wouldn't you be? And by the way... your mohawk... still
isn't. Sorry. Adria (really Natalie) likes the
groceries, while Diane misses her car.
So far, Jase, Michael,
and Diane think Lori is a threat and a help. Diane votes
Welcome to the filler
section of the eviction show. So far, Adria and Natalie
have pulled a switcheroo six times. That's three times
as is allowable under Price is Right rules. If they can
do it for two more weeks, then they'll enter the house
in tandem. But how do the 'rents feel about this?
They're laughing. "Me, the mother? I'm fooled."
Natalie's husband never caught onto the switch at home,
because he can tell the two apart (apparently Natalie's
the more in-your-face one). Adria's husband, on the
other hand... "It bothers me to hear people talk about
Adria and Natalie behind their back."
The family watches the
live switch from last week, while Natalie gets choked
up. But they are for the two 100 percent, as Adria and
Natalie are for each other 100 percent.
Marvin is exquisite in
the HOH room, where he can speak his mind... as he can
everywhere else. Marvin was ticked about not having
Holly up on the block. "I got three (enemies) this
week!" That would be Jase, Holly, and Lori. Marvin's
able to comedy his way through the house thanks to his
life as a mortician. As far as trust, and he has said it
before, "I wouldn't trust anyone as far as I can throw a
fat lady after Thanksgiving." He'd want to see Scott win
Next, Drew, Jennifer,
and Scott cast their votes. Jennifer thinks Karen gets
emotional. Scott thinks Karen's a threat. Drew thinks
Lori's a strong gamer. Scott votes for Lori.
Will is taking this
hard, having to choose between his two best friends.
Well... not too hard. He's probably the most fun that
the ladies ever had in this house. Lori think he's
genuine. Will thinks that honesty binds the three of
them - himself, Lori, and Karen. "The fact that they are
up on the block this week sends shivers up my spine.
It's another episode of 'When Bad Things Happen to Good
People'. This is an absolute travesty."
Final words from Karen:
"The nature of this game is going to put a lot of us in
the position that I'm in now. I'm very happy that I'm
next to someone as cool as Lori. I'll never forget
this." Final words from Lori: "This has been amazing. I
never thought I'd become this close to you so fast. I
wish you all the best."
Finally in the Diary
Room, Adria, Holly, and Will discuss Karen and Lori.
Karen's looking for strength. Lori's a link to sanity.
Will finally decides... Karen. But will his sentiment
echo that of the rest of the houseguests? Julie has RE-sult.
"By a vote of 7 to 2...
Karen... you are safe. Lori, you have been evicted." Way
to pull a Seacrest there. Lori has her minute, as she
joins Julie at homebase. Holly and Karen share a hug,
Lori was put back and
forth between staying and going, but one thing remains
the same: she thought it was easy on TV. "I'm definitely
sad. I'd love to have won the game. I'm excited to be
back in the normal world." She wish Jase was in her
position. Final messages: most poignant (or as Gordon
would put it, "awwwwwwwwwbarf") goes to Cowboy: "This is
not goodbye. This is 'I'll see you later.'" She loves
Will's vow to win for her with her spirit on the inside.
But we're not done, as
Adria AND Natalie show up together to say goodbye. "Dum
dum dum..." Lori will be back for the finale, but for
now, you can talk to her AND her $10,000 (remember
that?) on tomorrow's episode of "House Calls" at CBS.com,
1p ET/10a PT.
But for now, it's HOH
time again. Marvin cannot compete.
Insert your own joke
here, folks. The players are blindfolded and on steps.
Julie will ask questions based on the Household. Each
question has a numerical answer, and the guests will
have to decide whether the right answer is higher or
lower than the number states. Correct answers survive.
Wrong ones split. Last person standing is the new Head
o' da House. Holly, Scott, and Diane are knocked out in
round 1, when they couldn't find out that two of the
houseguests are married. Will is knocked out when he
thinks that he spent less than 20 nights in the BB
House. Round 3, everyone but Drew is knocked out. That
So the power rests in
the hands of the Horsemen again. And Karen's pissed at
losing... again. Gordon will be back here... again... on
Saturday, when one of the ladies, or perhaps two of
them, three if it's Adria/Natalie, fight to stay in the
house... of love...
Get a kick out of saying
