"And the Horse You Rode In
On: Days 29-32" - August 3
Last time, the HOH
Challenge ended with Diane in power, Jase and Scott
scrambling for somewhere to hide, and Karen all Larry-fied.
Tonight, kamikaze Jase and Scott the bum-rusher, now
eviction nominees, will scramble with four others for
the Golden Veto, quite possibly the only thing that will
save the bond of the Four Horsemen.
Or lack thereof.
Diane admits to Scott
that she wants him around, so she says that he is being
used as a pawn. Very doubtful, I think. "Jase will be
leaving this house Thursday. The only way he'll save
himself is that he uses the Power of Veto on himself.
We'll work on Scott later." Jase, Marvin, and Scott...
With age comes wisdom? On Big Brother? Come on...
Scott reports back with
the news: "We win veto, Marvin's gone." That's what
Scott said SHE said. Of course, what's the worth, the
word of a woman scorned? But then again, Michael brings
up the Mariano gambit to A: "We saved you. We need you."
Nakomis and Will meet
Diane in the HOH room. Will brings up something about
Jase catching more flies with honey. "He's gotta go
before Scott does." Basically, they can't be in the same
Drew gets to play
duckball in slow-motion and Will and Diane ogle. No wait
a sec... Drew's not playing duckball. Sorry. He's
kissing Diane on the neck, and Will's getting jealous.
Drew finds taking Jase off the block attractive, so
Scott recruits him to sway Diane to put Marvin up,
thinking that everyone loves him. Sorry, but everyone
And because we can, we
get a barb from Marvin: "Not half, not some, but ALL mah
money, bitch! Ain't no 401K for hoes." He's got a
million of 'em, and he'll be here all week. Once he gets
out the house, it's onto "Chappelle's Show."
Michael, meanwhile, is
homesick. He misses the fiance and son. Especially his
son, whose birthday is in 12 days. Will joins in the
Next night, a pig
invasion. Karen jumps at the chance! "AAAAAH ARTS &
CRAFTS!!!" It's Karen porn, and everyone joins in on
the... porning, as we decorate the pigs (Will's even
chats up Drew's, and Scott's is a freakin' psycho). But
for what, you ask? We'll find out later... Right now,
Drew and Diane are headed into the bedroom... again...
to subtlely convince Diane to put up Marvin. Drew feels
like he's playing monkey in the middle, one of the
Horsemen sleeping with the enemy.
Will gets into the hot
tub next day, coming onto Cowboy's head... Good for him.
Anyway, it's Veto time. Will gets Diane's nod, while the
Horsemen choose Pretty Boy Drew and Cowboy.
This Little Piggy Won the Veto
Welcome to the Big
Brother Savings & Loan, where you can deposit one of 13
coins into your favorite houseguest to win the Veto. But
not more than 20, or else, it's AWWWWWWWWBARF... minus
the AWWWWWWW. You must deposit in at least two banks.
Will tries to overload Jase's bank, of course. Scott
overloads Diane's bank, and gave one to Will, as does
Jase. Drew gives herself, evens out the Horsemen, and
then overloads Will. Michael overloads Drew, while Diane
overloads no one in particular. Not smart. Then comes
the goggles... Sorry, piggies. Scott has six tokens.
Michael has nine. Diane gets 27. Mostly from Jase and
Scott. Check and mate, sucka. Drew gets seven. Jase has
18... and a dead pig. Will has ... only 11. Jase wins
the Veto. Jase's strategy with it is simple: avoid an
insanity-inducing brain hemorrhage. "Born again, baby!
This is MY HOUSE!" Diane is kicking herself over the
lack of a plan.
So part one, done. Now
Drew has to convince her that Marv poses an equally
threat. Or, at least, Jase and Scott have to. But Diane
doesn't buy it, because she hasn't forgotten how Jase is
like. "You're nothing without him, and he's nothing
without you." But once Jase is out of the picture, Scott
proves that he's his own man by giving the same offer.
But this time, we know he's lying, as he states that
"once we get the HOH, she's gone."
It's Spyscreen time, and
the ladies are discussing it for the first time. But how
do you activate it? Here's a tip: do not wear the HOH
robe and say "open sesame". Another tip: Use the remote.
They do... and all they get is fish. All of a sudden,
it's the beginning of "2001". Natalie's upset that
she and the others never found out about the Spyscreen,
and she pledges to get them all out.
Jase and Will talk about
the pigs one more time, with Will pulling major spin
control to protect himself. It must've worked, as they
work out a protectorate deal to put one side against
another. Now, you could do that, but the non-Horsemen
would still have the numbers advantage. Raw deal, I
know. But Will needs Jase to believe him. Jase needs
Will to believe him. It's a stalemate.
The girls talk about
Jase saving himself. They agree that if that were to
happen, then Scott would be gone, but the question is
now of who gets to go up against him? Marvin? Cowboy?
Whatever it is, there has to be trust, or it will not
Marvin reworks the head
in an attempt to garner favor. Will it work? We'll
see... Natalie grabs a cup. You know what that means.
Could be the final switch. Natalie gives Adria the
lowdown and... Adria, pay attention! You blow it between
now and Thursday, and Natalie's gone... for good.
Meanwhile, Jase, aka the
Devil, presides over the Veto Meeting in Will's clothes.
Will's take? "Jase is about as erotic as a wet t-shirt
contest at a nursing home." Jase and Scott take the
seriousness of the Veto Meeting and throw it out the
window in favor of a "Dumb and Stupider" routine. Jase's
gonna take himself off... right after he makes a
complete ass of himself. "Those of you who conspired
against me to vote me out of the house? Two words...
Kiss... My... Ass! And in the spirit of all of the
ass-kissing, maybe some of you better start kissing your
own asses goodbye, because I'm coming back next week
with a VENGEANCE!"
Good for you, Jase. DO
shut the hell up. Diane now goes down the line and puts
the next strongest person up... Marvin. So that's the
lineup for next time, Marvin versus Scott, and Adria &
Natalie versus everyone with a keen eye. Unfortunately,
I'm not in the house, so you can count on the twins
playing as two starting Thursday.
