"Halfway House: Days 42-43"
- August 14
Last time, Jase got kicked, having only one sympathy
vote to his name, and Adria got kicked up... to HOH,
that is. So what's in store now that one-half of the
twins is in the HOH Room? One thing's for sure, everyone
in the house is now in the game until the bitter end.
This round begins the jury selection, but more on that
Will gives the ATGS
Salute (RIP Randy) on a job well done. "Words cannot
describe the pure elation that we're feeling." Well met.
Drew tells Michael that he made his decision based on
what people might do later. Michael's retort: "Day one,
we were supposed to be men of our words, and he wasn't.
There's only one out of the Four Horsemen left in this
game, and that's me, and I'm going out with a fight."
Or, as Michael put it, a FAHT.
having the Best Week Ever as HOH. Nakomis sees this as a
test to see how much of a team effort A is willing to
put in now that she holds all the cards. One thing's for
sure, the original counteralliance, Will, Karen, and
Nakomis, were cringing. You wouldn't think that they
could cringe, but they could. One thing's for sure:
"It's safe to say Natalie's safe." Same with Diane and
Adria's holding a glass
again... Wait, we're past that, aren't we? Everyone goes
HOHing in Adria's new crib. Natalie gets to see her mom
again. Will wants to see her CD: "Confessions", Usher.
Good choice. "I screamed like a 12-year-old schoolgirl,"
Will says... Insert joke here.
"It was me!" Marvin
adds. "I was the one screaming like a little chick."
Again, insert joke here.
Michael tells Adria that
he has been straight since day 1, adding on the "who
deserves this money" clause. Even goes so far as to say,
"If y'all help me, I'll help you." But will it work?
Adria asks the $1 million question: "If you could save
one person, who would you save?" Michael's answer: "You
and your sister." That's TWO people, homey. He suggests
that Marvin might be the biggest threat, and in a way,
And he looks REALLY
funny now. Check this out...
Went from Cowboy to Boy
Band Reject... He prophesizes all the Project DNA
subjects in the final four. Diane enters for her fit of
groveling. She brings up the looks from earlier. Adria
noticed. Diane also thinks that Cowboy is someone to
look out after.She also brings up an interesting point
given by Nakomis: "Who do you think they're going to
nominate?" If I were you, I wouldn't start counting your
chickens JUST YET.
Karen's next, and she
tells Adria not to sweat it. But in the Diary Room: "I
could smell the power trip brewing the first time those
two girls sat in the same room together." She says she
would save... okay, she doesn't say anything, as Karen
scoffs at her offer to tell her. Karen tells her of
trust... which she later rescinds in the Diary Room. And
yes, folks, Karen gone done lost it.
"I think that they're
starting to get cutthroat now," Nakomis says to her
left-hand woman Karen and her right-hand woman Will.
Never say a name around them is a rule. Okay, here's
where that rule falls short: do they have to? I mean,
and I thought I would NEVER say this about a BB
contestant, but Adria and co. aren't stupid.
The twins notice that
the houseguests are getting louder and more annoying.
Then they actually discuss the nomination, saying that
there's no need to put up Marvin and Cowboy at the same
time. Well, we can save Cowboy, so how about either
Karen or Will? Preferably Will, because Karen would be a
drama queen all week. The new plan: put up Will and
Karen, and get Nakomis out later. So now, it's more or
less a three-finger plan.
How do you know that
this is the smartest bunch that BB has ever seen? "At
the center of the universe, could there be an anti-black
hole? And if the entire universe is a black hole in an
anti-black hole, then what's on the outside of our
universe?" A parallel universe... duh! "And if the black
hole supernovas, wouldn't that be considered a big bang?
So could there be multiple universes?" Quite possibly.
Now explain the Big Burp theory as presented on the
pilot of "Sliders".
While I'm being mentally
stimulated by my new reality show wench, Adria's
thinking about dinner. Drew needs not think, as you
recall that he must partake upon PB&J for the rest of
the first half of this episode. Hey, it could be worse.
It could be pot noodle.
Backyard Burger Bonanza
Two teams, red (Natalie,
Drew, Marvin, Diane) and blue (Cowboy, Will, Nakomis,
Karen), must make as many fake cheeseburgers as possible
in five minutes. Team with the most unlocks the outdoor
grill for the week. Losing team eats more PB&J. And much
like the Double Dare stunt this was stolen from, Natalie
and Cowboy must catch the ingredients on their buns.
And in case you're
tallying, this is the gratuitous bathing suit stunt. I'm
almost expecting Adria to say "On your mark, get set,
go!" Oh, look! She does!
Final burger tally: Red,
10. Blue, 11. The doomed three and Cowboy win it. Blame
missing ingredients and mat violations. Marvin, your
thoughts, please: "I hate losing, and the losers we lost
to... Cowboy, Nicodemus, Gay Will, and Karen, to lose to
them is just doubly bad."
Big Brother Spyscreen
Truth or Dare in the HOH room as we see... more of
Michael than is absolutely necessary. And Will. And
Drew. Diane's determined to outdo them all by wearing
Drew's Miami flag and... not much else. Okay, so she was
wearing something underneath... Party poopers.
"Diane suffers from the
disease we know as 'tanorexia'," Will notes about
Diane's constant lounging. "We should all make a very
valiant effort to get Diane out of the sun."
But before we can get
too comfortable looking at Diane's tanned and toned
body, Will complains that he can't get a read from
neither Adria nor Natalie. Marvin, on the other hand,
thinks it's him and Cowboy. Will says that Marvin feels
safe with him.
Natalie barges in on
Adria thinking about nominations. Should she leave? "No,
you're gonna lock the door and get your ass up in here!"
Among probables: Will, big threat Marvin, and outside
chance Karen as Adria works on building both the BB
House and the jury house. Will's thoughts? "I have a
feeling that we could see the next Jase brewing inside
the Head of Household room." I have a feeling we could
see the next Jase brewing out on the patio next to you.
Getting to crunch time.
Six keys on the block... Nakomis's... Drew's...
Natalie's... Michael's... Karen's... and Diane's.
Marvin's back on the block for the third time, while
this is Will's first nod. "Does this mean I can't listen
to Usher no more?"
Li'l Jon: YEEEEEAH! So
it's time for Marvin and Will to rise up and overcome.
Can Marvin survive a third straight week? Or will he
"let it burn"? One thing's for sure with veto looming
next time, it's now everyone for themselves.
