"I Can't Be a Bad Kisser...
Right?!" - August 21
The problem with being in
charge of breaking up an alliance is that you better be
able to protect yourself when the break-up comes. Adria
decides to jettison Will, which ends the big alliance
and splits up the group into two. Unfortunately for her,
her opponent of the other alliance, Nakomis, is the new
HOH, and she calls Adria's decision a 'bad choice' and
Will's parting words to Adria? "If karma is a boomerang,
I'll see you sooner than later."
Adria thinks that it was a risky move. I think it was
dumb because you left the athletic people
(Drew/Marvin/Cowboy) stick around. Even worse for her is
that Diane has bounced over to Nakomis and Karen's side
- and she may have brought Marvin, Drew and Cowboy with
her. Well, maybe not Drew, as she notes that he voted to
get rid of Will. Drew wants to make sure that he doesn't
wind up in the doghouse, so he tries to smooth things
out with Diane. He reminds her that you can't look at
things too far ahead - and you can only think week to
Adria and Natalie are still discussing Will's last
statement, and they don't know what he meant in terms of
karma. They think he was talking about Carmen Electra,
and I wonder if Holly isn't back in the game disguised
as one of the twins.
Fast-forward to Nakomis winning the HOH, and Adria
asking Marvin if he can stick around for another week.
Marvin thinks he's safe, though, because he thinks that
Nakomis will be going after the twins for getting rid of
Speaking of the twins, Drew notices that they
communicate without talking too much, and that spooks
him out. We get some examples of this, and that seems to
be another strike against them. Adding to it? Adria
breaking the pinky swear, which happened when she didn't
get rid of Marvin. "Adria owes me a finger," says
Nakomis. No word on specifically which finger that is.
Diane talks to Nakomis about getting rid of Cowboy,
since he's on her list. He may be if she wins it next
week, but this week the choice is Nakomis, and I'd be
shocked if the twins aren't on the block.
They may be getting their just desserts early, as we
proceed with the food competition. Set in a very fancy
atmosphere, the contestants get a dish of their favorite
food. The catch? They only have 3 minutes to eat it.
Each person is assigned a day of the week, and if they
eat everything on their plate, they are exempt from PB&J
for that day. Cowboy goes up first, and he is thrilled
with his meal... until we have a second twist.
Smoothies from Hell
His fried rice, sweet &
sour chicken and fortune cookies (with a Dr. Pepper) are
to be liquefied, and everyone has to drink their meal as
a smoothie! Cowboy is enjoying it as he dances to the
drinking of his shake. He completes the meal and day one
Marvin gets day 2 - lobsters, oysters shrimp and a
Corona. "It reminded me of trying to drink down battery
acid with dog vomit." Battery acid and dog vomit don't
go down well, and he blows it. Natalie has fettuccini
alfredo and red wine and she chugs it down with ease.
Spinach artichoke dip, filet mignon, broccoli, apple pie
a la mode, and a Corona is on the menu for Drew. "My
shake was by far, the worst thing I've ever tasted," he
says, but he completes his task. Karen gets a bean
burrito, a choco-taco, and a Diet Coke. She downs it
with ease, as she yells, "Don't mess with this!"
We get more filet mignon for Adria - and some coffee,
which apparently tastes good with filet mignon, as Adria
has no problem with it. Diane gets chicken & spinach
pizza - and she gets it down, but not before wanting to
barf. Marvin is the only one who screws it up and
everyone else gets to eat for the rest of the week.
Nakomis gets her second tour of the HOH room. She gets
letters from home and some CD cover illustrations from
her boyfriend Donald. She says that the CD has songs,
while Marvin notices the macabre cover. "If I'm in love
with some chick, and I'm thinking of a dead bird, then
there's something wrong here."
She gets letters from the family, including from her
siblings that talk about Michael as a new member of the
family. That gets warm thoughts from everyone. Also
getting warm? Drew and Diane, as they spend more snuggle
and kissing time. Drew doesn't like her kissing, so he
tries to teach her, but with limited success. Also not
working out? The boys attempts to help Cowboy out in the
romance department, which goes around as well as it
sounds. Also a lost cause? Michael trying to do aerobics
with the women, or as Adria puts it, "Michael hasn't
exactly connected with his coordination skills."
Michael, however, was the first person to notice the new
table - it's not down to eight chairs. "You used to have
to send smoke signals and carrier pigeons, but now you
can whisper and other people can hear." Someone who
wants to grab Nakomis's ear is Natalie, who insists that
he wanted to keep Will - but she voted against him when
he told her that he couldn't guarantee her safety. She
isn't buying what Natalie is selling and she thinks that
she can be lying to her face. Nakomis: "Sometimes what
you feel is the right thing of you isn't the right thing
for the game, and that could come out and bite you in
Adria may be regretting the lack of evicting Marvin when
she complains of his foot odor. We break into a Marvin's
feet montage, with the realization that something else
stinks. That stinky thing is the twins, who want to get
rid of Nakomis next. They also talk about talking
Nakomis into getting them off the block, as Adria tells
Natalie, "It ain't over until Julie Chen says it's
Sure enough, Adria goes up to talk to Nakomis, who wants
to know why she got rid of Will. Her answer is that she
knew that if Will stayed in the house, she was going up
next. Nakomis really doesn't buy it, and tells Adria
that she's already made up her mind. Adria is going up -
the question is will it be Natalie, Michael or Marvin
who joins her.
"Some of these are ashes for my past victories, while
others are oil for my ever-burning fire." This is poetry
waxed from Nakomis, who now gets to select the people up
for nomination. After her talking about getting rid of
the people who wronged her, she tells Marvin that he
hasn't wronged her... yet. He's safe, and so is Drew,
Diane, Karen and Michael. That leaves the twins, who are
both on the block. "You two are the only people in the
house that I know of that broke a direct promise. I
promised you that if you broke up your promise, you
would be up there. I stay true to my promises, and
that's why you are up there."
The twins pledge to fight for the veto, while Nakomis
says that they will make one of the twins pay and Diane
says that she doesn't care which one of them goes, as
long as one of them goes. Heh. Chico will also be going
- but he'll be going to recap the Tuesday episode when
we see you again in a few days.
