"She Owes Me a Finger:
Days 50-53" - August 24
Empowered by the spirit of
the deposed Will, Nakomis is on the hunt for the fingers
of Adria and Natalie for their breaking of the pinky
swears made earlier. Will Nakomis collect from the
twins, or will the Veto save one of them?
We pick up right after the
nomination ceremony, as the sisters pledge solidarity.
Nakomis goes back to week 2 (and you can too thanks to
this sidebar) and the promise that they made. Adria and
Natalie laugh at the promise calling it a "cop-out", and
that's right up there on the "Duh!" level with karma on
Saturday. Natalie said that she personally never aligned
herself with Will; that Adria did. True and not true.
See, that's when you and Adria were supposedly the same
person. And since Adria was the person holding the gun
last week... well, the rest writes itself, really.
It's very hard to decide
which twin should go, from being "good friends"
(Michael) to "having too much testosterone" (Marvin).
And in case Adria and Natalie need some clarity on why
they're up, here's Nakomis to give it to them, citing
the promise. Adria's diary room defense: "When Natalie
came into the house, all bets were off." Natalie's
defense: "She's trying to fight somebody's battle who is
Adria goes to Diane to ask
for commitment. Diane says she's completely alone in
this house. Adria tells her that she thinks Nakomis is a
complete (^_^) for not giving her a valid reason for the
nomination. Hello, you no listen? Do you under-STAND the
WORDS that are COMING from HER mouth? "Natalie's like
the bad twin," Diane says.
One thing you learn from
being in the House, watch what you say, because if you
don't, someone else will. Case in point, Nakomis
watching the Diane and Adria show on the Spyscreen.
Adria tries to enlist the
help of Drew and Cowboy to save herself with the veto.
She just wants it to be used. Diane doesn't buy her
game. And neither does Drew, but says that he'd use it
if he won it. That's what he SAYS...
LUXURY COMPETITION: Big
Brother Web (powered by Amazon.com)
One at a time, the players
must go into the web, grab a ball (which has a letter),
and proceed out of the web. Then unscramble the web of
balls to create one word. If they can do that,
Amazon.com will award the houseguests with a shopping
spree. If they finish in three minutes or less, it's 18
items. For every 30 seconds afterwards, one item will be
deducted. And just to light a fire under your foot, the
quickest webcrawler takes home a $1000 gift certificate.
Of course, the balls spell
out "INTERNET". Now you see the whole "web" connection.
They're really open about connecting challenges to
rewards and such. Marvin wants to represent the people
in the Kackalack, East Coast, Dirty South, all that
stuff... YEAH! What then? Unfortunately, Marvin's in the
web at the 3:00 mark. Natalie enters at the 4:00. So
far, the only one representing the Dirty South proper...
is me. Final time, counting learning how to spell
"internet": 5:03. That's 18, minus four for time... 14
items. Start shopping!
Good thing it was only
"internet", because if they had to spell "ARPAnet", we'd
be here all day.
Wait, forgot about the
individual prize: the $1000 Amazon gift certificate...
3rd - Michael (:21)
2nd - Adria (:17)
Winner - Diane (:16)
The HOH Spyscreen is rigged
into a computer interface to shop. They get to choose
from steaks, a fire basin, an elliptical trainer, and
volleyball set. What, no Playstation? Some reward.
While waiting for the
packages to arrive, Diane is bombarded by twin overload,
as Diane says she'd probably use the Veto. "I don't know
if anybody is willing to save them except themselves."
Adria is committed to confusing the hell out of Diane as
she faults her for committing herself to committing to
other people to commit to having the twins committed.
Then the Amazon packs come!
Always an exciting moment. Marvin line of the night:
"Just like Christmas in a rich people neighborhood."
Karen line of the night: "Now we got our fire pit, and
we can get all toasticle, and we can roasticle some
marshmallows." Or at least we can start with Holly's
lucky cat... which wasn't so lucky for Holly and
likewise for the Brad Pitt wannabe she gave it to.
Three guys playing cards
and talking about "The Young and the Restless". Speaking
of which, it's time to reveal America's Choice for the
next soap star (I better stop now, I may give someone an
idea or two). Right after the bad cut scenes and stage
kissing, of course. But first...
Drew waxes fundamental
about the Veto, and Michael thinks that backscratching
is in order when dealing with the twins. If Michael were
to win, then he would guess that Marvin would make a
return trip to the block. "It's a risk that we have to
VETO COMPETITION: The
DNA Morph-o-Matic Mug Shots
Nakomis chooses Marvin,
Adria chooses Drew, and Natalie chooses Cowboy. Nakomis
is first up the next day, and she sees "science fiction
mumbo-jumbo, DNA morphomatic, screw-with-your-head
competition". Simple, really, six composites using three
houseguests. You have to identify which three. Fastest
First: Scott, Nakomis,
Second: Mike, Karen, Michael
Third: Will, Scott, Lori
Fourth: Marvin, Diane, Lori
Fifth: Jase, Holly, Drew
Sixth: Mike, Twins, Jase
After an "emotionally
traumatizing round," Adria clocks in at 4:40, the
fastest, for the veto. And you have to admit... The
set-up's pretty surreal. Diane's not happy. Karen's not
happy. Marvin's not happy. Nakomis is DEFINITELY pissed.
Natalie, meanwhile, tells Adria to use the veto to save
herself. "You can win. You've done more than me. You're
great." She thinks that Nakomis will put Drew up. "It
doesn't matter, because if people are gunning for you,
'then I'll see you sooner than later if that's the
case'." Will's words coming back to haunt the twins.
THAT's karma, by the way.
The girls decide to use a
decoy on the block. Not Marvin, too much of a liability
and a powerhouse. Not Drew, as Diane's a little too
apprehensive of a possible breakup. "I think you have to
go tell Cowboy you need to use him as a pawn." Nakomis
admits, "Out of bloodline respect, I can't put him up."
Just go to him and explain the whole deal. I'm sure
he'll understand. I mean, he'll understand anything,
It's time to use the Veto.
Natalie pleads her case (just a formality), but Adria
does decide to use it... on herself, saying that she'd
just rather be here as herself, rather than have Natalie
ride her coat-tails all game long. In her stead, Nakomis
puts up... her brother, simply a safe bet. "I truly
don't think you have anything to worry about."
From the mouths of
multi-hued-hair babes... Thursday, contrary to what
Nakomis said earlier and contrary to what was agreed
upon further back, Cowboy and Natalie will go up,
although Cowboy may just serve as a decoy (decoys have
yet to be turned about in this season... YET)... and one
of them will go out. My money's on Natalie leaving, 4-1.
Oh, and that thing about
Y&R? You'll see about that on Thursday as well. Now, if
you'll excuse me, I think Amazon is at my door.
