"Eviction Night: Scott
vs. Marvin" - August 5
Last time, Jase foiled
Diane's power with one veto and one hell of a dramatic
monologue. Tonight, either Marvin or Scott will walk the
Losers' Mile as a result of said dramatic monologue. And
we'll find out if Natalie and/or Adria managed to
survive the last three days without being discovered.
But first, we go live to
day 35 at homebase. Julie, therefore ruining any
dramatic subtext I was able to write into this recap,
informs us that tonight, Adria and Natalie will enter
the house in tandem, and play for the $500,000 as two
people, not one.
How will that affect the
Four Horsemen's future? It won't, but I thought that
would make a decent segue way into this... Scott and
Marvin discuss who going home tonight. Scott is
guaranteed three votes from Jase, Drew, and Cowboy. They
still need one more vote, but who's?
Scott says to Diane that
he owes her one for the last week at HOH. Then as soon
as he leaves, she does the gun-to-own-head motion.
Marvin gives the same kudos to Diane, who just says to
"Have faith in me." Of course, being up on the block,
it's hard to do.
Meanwhile, the ladies,
including Jennifer, with the new pink hair, are
dispelling notions that the guys saved Adria, when it
was really the ladies' doing. The guys discuss the same
thing, and Scott's being all pissy because he's not
getting all the information he wants, apparently. Scott
demands a straight answer about his safety, and all of a
sudden, I can hear "Flagpole Sitta" in the background...
You know, "Paranoia, paranoia, everybody's comin' to get
Adria meets Scott and
Jase to discuss the above paragraph, having it escalate
into a shouting match once Diane enters the
conversation. All while the ladies (and yes, Will counts
as a lady now) discuss counter strategy, thinking that
Adria has switched gears about Scott. And all of a
sudden, she's now the swing vote. The non-Horsemen
decide to cut Adria off IF she saves Scott, thinking
that will hurt her the most.
Checking in with the
houseguests... reveals nothing that we haven't seen
before. The HOH competition, Jase's haircut, Jase's
going mad, Adria's past week, Karen talking about Larry.
Then we go to the vote from the Diary Room, where Jase
and Michael vote for Marvin, while Karen and Jennifer
vote for Scott.
Second order of
business: Adria and Natalie. But first (damn, Julie!),
we go to Diane and Drew, as we hear from their siblings
about their budding showmance. "They're not trying to be
too cutesy with it," Ben (Drew's brother) says. "I know
her very well. I know she really likes him," Lindsey
(Diane's sister) says. "I think Drew's too good for
her." Then we see the picture of the two sisters
together again... Wouldn't mind those two switching off
from time to time. Lindsey and Ben both give Adria and
Natalie props for faking the whole house out. In
defense, it doesn't take much to fake those people
Diane's in the HOH Room,
and we're talking about being the first female HOH,
Jase's veto, the secret of the Spyscreen, and her
"special" relationship with Drew. She wants to see
anyone but Cowboy or Jase win HOH tonight. Back in the
Diary Room, Will votes for Scott, and Drew votes for
Marvin. Adria is still the swing... and a target
alongside Natalie. "I vote to evict... *giggle* It's
just not flying off my tongue." You honestly didn't
think you were going out that easy, did you?
Well, we can give you...
a BIT of solace. First off, Scott and Marvin's final
Scott: "Cowboy, you're
one of my best boys, and I'm going to miss our times in
the bathtub (he prefaces this by saying "I like women").
Jase, your craziness. I love you, brother. Drew, I
appreciate all you've done. And the rest of you, if I'm
gone, just remember the Savage."
Marvin: "Uh, ditto.
Thank y'all who voted for me to stay, and if you didn't,
well, the good die young. Y'all'll live on forever, and
I'll come back and haunt you in your dreams." He gives
shouts to the producers. It's now eviction time. Julie,
take it. "By a vote of 4-3, Scott... you are evicted
from the Big Brother House."
Jase: "IT'S ON, SCOTT!"
Save it for the HOH, bro! Time for the post-game with
Julie, as Jase heads to the bath again. A still shocked
Scott, who said "I'm not good at goodbye's, so I'll just
say hello one last time," discusses how the Horsemen
had, then lost the power, how Holly's vote might have
saved him, how BAD he lied, and any regrets. "I regret
lying. I try to make things right, and I think I just
took the game too far." We get the goodbye montage,
including the reference to a) Holly's dismissal last
week, and b) the upcoming "shocker". Scott knew that
from the eyes. And you know, if he called her on that,
that would've been one less bell to answer, one less egg
to fry. His reaction? "Natalie's probably gone."
But for now, Scott's gone. He'll be on "House Calls"
tomorrow. If you want to check that out, it's 1pm ET on
awaits the call in the Diary Room. Julie reenters with
news of this week's HOH, but first, the reveal. She asks
outgoing HOH Diane how many players have been playing
this game. "Thirteen?" WRONG! Fourteen. "Oh, shoot!"
Michael says. Well, one thing's for sure, dude... It
ain't Holly, so stop saying her name. Here's houseguest
Enter the "OMGWTFBBQCBSMSNBCGSNN"
squeals. And now Jase and Will are hugging! This... is
so wrong. Okay, back to the HOH...
HOH COMPETITION: Home is
Where the Answer Is
True-false quiz on the
house. Have you been paying attention? Five haven't, as
Marvin, Michael, Jase, and Drew take a seat... Now if
YOU've been paying attention, you'll notice the irony of
this round. The game's all about observation, yet Julie
fails to observe Natalie's incorrect answer. She lives
on for another round. After another round, Nakomis gets
the HOH Room keys for the week. If you're expecting
something to come about it for Michael, I'll just say "I
