"The Final Four: Day
70-72" - September 11
Last time, a plan to get
Karen out of the house surprisingly worked out, as we
are now down to the celebrated Final Four, but could an
intense sibling rivalry be brewing for a spot in the
But first, a new term
defined in the Big Brother Dictionary: "backdooring"
(gerund): to vote somebody off without telling them.
Diane swears that she never backdoored Karen. She just
didn't tell her the complete truth. She did say that
votes were unanimous, but never mentioned names. At this
point, Diane is pretty much a lost case, because
"everyone who's walked out that door gave me (^_^) for
Michael: "For what it's
worth, I AM glad to be here."
As for HOH matters, Nakomis
is worried that the power couple is going to put her and
Cowboy on the block. Or maybe her and Diane (fear of
girls?!). It's just hope for the best at this moment.
And at this moment, it's off to Drew's HOH room with a
new plant and a new Miami of Ohio shirt! CD of choice:
Counting Crows, "August and Everything After". Their
Meanwhile, Nakomis names
Drew's new fake fern "Piedmont". From the French meaning
"foot hill". Aren't many ferns in the foothills, really.
And again, Michael
complains about not having a picture from home.
Next, we track Diane's
little belly, from little in day 5... to slightly bigger
today. Panic. Ooooh. Next thing you know, she'll
complain that she's losing her tan. Drew doesn't hold it
against her. Just more of her to love, baby. Michael
brings up an interesting point. They complain, then eat
chips. Drop the chips, and use the home gym. You're not
going to have the benefit of free Amazon.com forever,
Back to the game. Drew
details that Diane needs to throw the Veto to hold
Michael and Drew in the game. Ideal position: she is
voted out. But Michael is the one with the vote,
ideally. That means that he would have to break his
promise with Nakomis. Again, head or heart?
Meanwhile the table shrinks
again, as this year's Four are the youngest in BB
history. To put into context: Michael is 23. Drew and
Diane are 22. Nakomis is 21. In contrast, I am 24.
Gordon and Ryan are 25. Jason is 36.
Next up, hot sex that you
can get away with on broadcast in daylight with Drew and
Diane. And they're technically not "together" yet. They
want to be together outside the house, but they're still
no Rob & Amber.
New York strips for dinner?
Only in the BB House. Definitely not the Iron Chef.
He'll be lucky if he makes it past microwave academy.
Now, hot sex that you can
get away with on broadcast in nite-vision green with
Drew and Diane. Diane suggests switching it around by
putting Cowboy on the block. Drew says that the way they
planned it posts a better chance of success.
Okay, you remember last
year when we had some really bad fashion faux pas? Well
this year isn't any better. Time to remedy that.
It's a shopping spree
for new clothes! But first, you must sacrifice the worst
article of dress that you have. Think of it as "What Not
to Wear" taken to the next level. This year joining the
fire of fashion hell is the deep fried duds, "tarred &
tailored", and "sling shirt." There's also a "safe"
wedge on the wheel of doom, but it's very... very..
small, as is the "houseguests' choice". For each piece
of clothing trashed, the players are awarded 10 seconds
in a shopping spree. After Diane's too-tight shirts,
Michael's dopey pants, Drew's Goonies shirt ("Sorry,
Vanessa! I got your man AND I burned your shirt!") and
Nakomis' goth crap meet their respective ends, the group
earns 2 minutes shopping time. BUT there's a twist.
You'll get an extra 15 seconds if you sacrifice the
clothes off your back. No undies, please. We're trying
to keep our PG rating. Cowboy and Drew take two for the
team, and get another 30 seconds. Sorry, guys.
Wait, Diane decides to
join! That's 2:45 to get whaterver you can wear out of
the house. And they do just that. My favorite: Cowboy's
Next night, a little
trick. Drew and Michael switch beds while Diane's in the
bathroom. Good thing Diane didn't kiss him or else she'd
have to face the wrath of the future Mrs. Cowboy.
Next day, Drew and Diane
wonder if they could be related. No chance there.
Imagine what the kids would look like.
That night, Diane and
Drew think about nominations. "It's time for me to walk
out the house this week," Diane quips, as she tries to
contest the idea of her being put up. Drew reassures
that Michael will keep her in the game.
But will he? It's
nomination time, and Drew, as was not the case the last
time he was HOH, makes this one easy (even though it's
that much harder now that he has the ideal four). He
spares Michael this week, surprising Nakomis, as she and
Diane are now marked for eviction. Drew leaves it in
both pairs of hands to win the Veto.
Next time, the results
of said Veto.
