"Enemies Made Fresh Daily:
Days 21-23" - July 24
Last time on Big Brother, Lori was toast, Drew got
control of the toaster, and he is now figuring out which
of the girls he wants to cover in butter and grape
But before we get to breakfast, we have to wake up our
collective memories and recap what happened on the last
episode. Everyone in Lori's alliance was sad to see her
go, while everyone who voted for her knew that they had
to get rid of her. Cue to the HOH, as everyone who isn't
the Four Horsemen is getting sick of the Horsemen
winning it. Jennifer thinks that Drew will vote as he
wants to, while Karen thinks that she will be going up
...and that's exactly what Marvin tells Drew to have
everyone think, as we start off the new material.
Marvin's rationale is that if they float stuff like
that, then it will take away from a guys vs. girls
scenario. Drew tells the Horsemen about this, and they
tell him to not trust him, with Jase adding that his
days are numbered. Scott wants to target the Adria/Nakomis/Diane
alliance. That's not the alliance the Horsemen should be
worried about. Will, who thinks he really knows what's
going on, talks to Diane and Karen to speak to Drew
about putting up Holly, since everyone wants to get rid
Everyone gets to see Drew's HOH room, which is decorated
with pictures and his bed linens. He also gets his
'Miami' banner from college as everyone congratulates
him on the win.
More strategy talking time. Jase, who is convinced that
the Horsemen have the vote, wants to put up Adria, while
Michael wants to put up Marvin or Diane. Jase thinks
that it's 'A' and Diane, but Drew seems to have a thing
for her. His decision - to put up the two people best
for the Horsemen, or to put up one person that he knows
people will be aligned to get rid of - and to make him
look better. Hmmm...
Scott lies to everyone that he made $750,000 a year -
and he thinks that it would make people seem like he is
less of a threat. I think that's a disastrous strategy,
as the thought could be "Let's vote out Scott, he
doesn't need the money." He also lied about his
birthday, as it was a month ago - but he gets a birthday
cake for his troubles anyways. "The one thing that you
can take Scott at - is his word." That comes from Will,
and you can just sense the irony of this one coming from
a mile away.
Holly is by the pool, and she talks to Scott about what
Jase has done. That brings in irate Jase to the pool and
he is upset. Drew is very concerned about that - and he
is concerned about Holly breaking up the Horsemen. I
personally think that Holly and Jase's combined IQ is
your standard variety of coconut, and they are meant for
The conversation then goes to Michael, who works in the
oil fields. He is the bread-winner, but Marvin tells
Michael that he's loaded and Michael takes offense to
it. Michael adds that he's tired of him and there could
e a late push to put Marvin on the block.
Drew invites Diane, who says that she doesn't know if
she can trust her. Drew says that the feeling is mutual
- but he enjoys cuddling with her. He asks her about who
should go, and she says that she doesn't like Jase and
Scott. She thinks that Will and Diane are strong
players, and she says that everyone knows how they feel
about Holly. "Holly sucks," says Diane, who adds that if
he puts her up against anyone, she's gone. Hidden
alliances - gotta love them.
Jase and Holly talk about being judged on the way that
they look. I judge them by the way hat they think - or
lack of. He says that he has a hard time with chicks
because of how they look - and Scott concurs. Uh...
It's time for the food competition, and the players are
in the soup. The swimming pool is full of alphabet soup,
with letter noodles. This is easy to guess - if you
spell a food item correctly, you get the food item. The
letters are on the top, while the vowels are on the
BOTTOM of the pool. You have 10 minutes to spell
everything. It's time to get nasty in the soup.
Marvin goes first, and he, of course, spells beer.
Michael is next with beef, and Scott follows with steak
(isn't steak beef? Duh). Ironically, Will, who hit the
bad egg before, draws up an egg while Jase scores pizza.
Diane gets milk, and Karen gets apples. I can't wait to
see what Holly spells.... wine. Figures. Karen scores
with cola and Nakomis gets pork. Second time around -
Marvin gets chicken, Michael gets everyone going nuts
with lobster and Scott spells cheesse... and then
cheese, which is right. That ends the game with a lot of
goodies - and alcohol. "I guess we all see our
priorities in the house."
The priorities quickly turn to nominations. Jase wants
Drew to break the Adria and Diane alliance, while
Michael is convinced that Drew will do the right thing.
Drew is realizing that what is good for the Horsemen
isn't necessarily what is good for his well-being in the
game - and he says that he needs to be a man and make
his own decision. Could this be a nomination that comes
out of nowhere?
Speaking of coming out of nowhere, Natalie and Adria
once again switch off, and immediately, she is brought
into the room with Drew. He talks to her about getting
rid of the strongest players and he suggests Marvin
would go on the block. He asks Adria if she would be up
there as a decoy, and she said that he should only put
up people that he wouldn't mind to see leave, adding
that she wouldn't put him up.
Back to the Horsemen - Jase is now convinced that Marvin
should go, adding that he hates Marvin. Drew is now
visibly concerned because that's not who Jase wanted out
a few hours ago. Drew decides to go by himself and stare
at the pictures, adding that the person who thinks ahead
the furthest will win. Right on cue, Holly goes in to
the room and cuddles up with Jase. Drew takes off, with
Holly asking what's going on. Jase is reassuring her
that she's ok. You sure you want to do that?
Everyone is hoping that Drew makes the right decision,
while Michael adds that Drew has to do the dirty work.
Holly prays to Jesus that it's not her. Will thinks that
he will get flack if he makes the right decision - but
he hopes he makes it. Drew comes back, and hopes that
everyone will realize the consideration that he made
when making these decisions, and he reminds everyone
that this is a game. Let's see how long THAT mentality
Drew pulls out the first key - and it's Will. Following
him is Jase, Adria (which visibly stuns Jase) and this
is the first sign that we may be getting something
unexpected. Diane is safe too, and Scott and Jase are
both nervous. Scott is safe, and now it's Holly that is
looking nervous. Karen is safe, then Marvin, and Scott
and Jase are shaking their heads. Michael is the last
person safe, which means that the two people up for
grabs are... Nakomis and Holly. Holly may wonder if
Jesus has some explaining to do to her.
Drew says that Holly has been blessed with the gift of
persuasion, which makes her dangerous, adding that her
ability to change people's (Jase's) minds in a matter of
hours makes her a threat to win the game. Jennifer is up
there because of her many alliances in the house.
Reactions? Jennifer is happy as she looks on to see
Scott, Jase and Holly's face. Scott says that
strategically it's a stupid move, because she wouldn't
vote any of them out of the house. Drew says that he
made a good move, and I have to agree, because Scott
isn't looking at the big picture - by showing that he
isn't completely in the Horsemen camp, Drew takes
himself off the block when the women finally get control
of the HOH - and they put Scott, Jase and Cowboy right
on it. In addition, he can put Marvin up as collateral
in a Power of Veto situation.
That being said, Drew has created a lot of fun drama in
the house - drama that Chico should have a field day
with when he gets this bad boy on Tuesday.
