"Six Fingers: Days
36-39" - August
strange happened in the House last week. Someone used
their brains. Nakomis used her power of the HOH to a)
reunite via picture frame Guy Dedmon with his long lost
son (Michael) and b) put Diane and Marvin up as a
distraction for Jase, who now believes that he is safe
for one more week. But is he?
We pick up after the
nomination ceremony, and Jase is still riding high on
his "victory", while the rest of the houseguests are in
shock. And by "shock", I mean "total bullfunky mode." In
fact, the only one outside of Jase who is clueless of
the motive of the noms is Michael. Drew, on the other
hand, is playing both sides of the fence, supporting
Diane in her time of great "need", while not really
talking to Jase about the plan beforehand.
Karen, once again, explains
the Six-Finger Plan: Nakomis puts up two from her side:
Marvin and Diane. Those three choose who plays in the
veto, ideally anyone but Jase. After the veto is used,
Jase goes in the block. Ideally, Jase goes home Thursday
"with no possibility of parole". Quite possibly... Best.
Gameplan. Ever. Jase is still buying it, hoping that
he'll salvage himself. Michael, playing the
brother-sister card with Nakomis hopes it doesn't blow
up in his face.
But it does have one crutch: Marvin is still inside the
Horsemen camp for the time being. But perhaps I'm the
only one thinking like that.
Natalie goes back to the
twin twist, thinking that the house still doesn't get
what's going on. All she knows is that Adria is the
sixth finger and Natalie is the third nipple... Ahem, so
anyway, they explain how they did it, from the hair toss
to the symmetry deal. They try to decipher who did what
to whom and how. All we know for sure... Michael
wouldn't mind getting it on with both of them. And
honestly, who wouldn't? Jennifer notes the key
difference that I noticed: Natalie's butt is smaller.
"I think we need to start
not sleeping together at some point in time." The words
of Drew to Diane. Obviously they think ahead to whether
or not someone's going to sniff them out. They won't be
sniffed out if a) Marvin and Cowboy are next to go, b)
Drew stays with Diane, and c) the two of them stay with
the twins. A plus B plus C equals another month at
and Will shows us... trust, leading us to a dance
montage. Solo dances, twin dances, moshing, dance
battles... Painful dance battles.
Karen is on a mental
cooking fit, and all of a sudden, people think she's
crazy. Think nothing, I KNOW she's crazy. Checklist:
thinking evil thoughts with spoon in hand? Check. "Karen
has multiple personality disorder!" (Nakomis) Check.
Happiness leads to stress, which leads to baking, which
leads to talking, which leads to MORE stress, which
leads to comfort, and we've come full circle back to
Karen thought that something was wrong with A
originally. Natalie gets a little bit weirded by coming
back to the twin thing. "Sometimes people treat you like
you've got something weird about you," she says of the
whole twin thing. I blame Children of the Corn. Going
back to Jase's cockiness toward Adria, all Natalie could
think of was "Your worst nightmare is going to walk out
of that door... times TWO!"
Marvin suggests to Jase
that Diane was a pawn. All of a sudden, Jase gets it.
"They have the votes," Jase says after detaining the
Six-Finger Plan. "I'm gone." And the kicker? "We don't
even have Drew anymore." Yep. Off to the glue factory
with the Four Horsemen.
And here comes the truck
driver with the Veto pickings. Jase makes one last
appeal to Marvin for one last shot to save himself. Will
it work? Jennifer chooses Adria, Marvin chooses Big
Willie Style, and Diane chooses Drew. From one
interesting choice to another. Let's see how it plays
out as Drew suggests not using the veto to Jase and
Michael. "No pressure." Drew agrees, but as he admits,
"I'm not the best liar in this house."
Jase prepares for his
demise with the following cardboard sign: "Starting
alliance, join today." Heh, like that'll work twice.
VETO COMPETITION: Pop
Goes the Veto
One giant balloon board with six equal circles of six
colors, each representing one person. Whoever has
balloons left after each houseguest takes their turn
popping the other five wins the veto. Marvin quote of
the night, of course... "Now here comes Bootylicious
hailing from Alabama, Crimson Tide state." He... was
second. Diane was first gone. Adria reveals upon being
eliminated last that it was predetermined that Drew was
going to win, so there's no point in going any further
Drew have a heart to heart. Jase still sees Drew as the
savior and Diane as a pawn. But Drew says that he
wouldn't use the veto to piss people off. Drew then
tells Michael that he's not going to use the veto. "We
said 'men of our word', day one. If you use it, that boy
(Jase) is gone this week." I think that's kinda the
idea. But now Drew finds himself between a cart and a
"Good morning, maggots." Maggots?! Yep. Apparently the
better half of this house can scheme with the best of
them, but they can't clean up after themselves. So
what's a hamster to do? Pick up a scouring pad and start
scrubbing, as Natalie does.
"I think over the next few
weeks, you will see some very interesting divisions
arise in the Big Brother House. One specific
relationship that is a threat to all of us is that
connection that Natalie and Adria share." So now Will
teams with Karen to form "the alliance that nobody knows
about." Meanwhile the alliance that everyone knows about
shares a sisterly moment on the hammock. They see Cowboy
and Marvin as threats for their allies, Karen as a
threat for riding coattails, Diane as being real, and
themselves as two sacred people. "Twins rule the world".
Next day, Drew shares a
moment with his cart. He begins to ponder out loud
whether or not to use the veto. Both he and agree that
Diane is safe (no-brainer) and that there would not be
any hard feelings if he didn't use the veto (probably
the sex talking). "You do what you want with it. I trust
Will that be
enough? Drew calls the veto meeting, where he gives
Marvin and Diane one more chance to save themselves.
Diane: "I would hate to see you lose your cuddle
partner." Yeah, I think next week, they reach the
spooning stage. Marvin: "I feel sick. Homeboy! Bros
before hoes, remember? Give me the veto! GIVE! ME! THE!
VETO! Dammit." Okay, we're thoroughly scared now. Now to
"No offense to Marvin, but
I'd love to give it to lovely Diane." Hell, I would.
Free nookie for a week? I'd be like "Hey, where do I put
this Veto thing?"
No brainer what the next
move is, as Jennifer puts the final roast on Jase's
barbecue pit. Seal up tight, and broil for two days.
Thursday, we dine on stewed horseman.
