"Eviction Night: Diane
vs. Nakomis" - September 14
It's Tuesday, so you're
expecting a pretaped episode with the final Veto, right?
Well Julie's here to greet nominees Diane and Nakomis,
so this must be live. Tonight, day 75, we'll have the
live veto competition, the live eviction, and the live
HOH. One week from tonight, a new lord of the manor will
ascend to the Big Brother throne.
Back to nominations, as
Nakomis would've taken "you sunk my Battleship" over
"you're a really strong player." That's so cliche,
really. Michael is hoping that he will join Drew at the
big boys' table tonight.
switches to the veto, as she notes that if the veto is
used, Michael will be put on the block. "I'm breaking a
promise to somebody." She admits to Drew about those two
promises: one to Drew and one to Nakomis. Drew sees it
as a game move to guarantee her spot in the final two.
Diane thinks clothes
were awesome. Nakomis thinks Dad would be just peachy to
see both kids on the Final Four. Drew thinks Ben would
say "Step by step". Michael wants to use the money to
take care of his family.
And Julie flubs her
pronunciation of Nakomis. Not a good sign. Meanwhile
over at the Jury House, it's Hell in Paradise, as "the
black guy and the gay guy" are up against the twins.
Will Karen's arrival heal the schism? Well, it may, but
Natalie was a little sick so she might not be in on the
whole new evictee love. Marvin's toast makes the line of
the night: "To backstabbers, liars, cheaters, and
deceivers!" Adria follow up: "Don't forget snitches!"
Happy tape time, as we
see the veto, the eviction, and everything in between.
We also see Karen caricature-drawing of the bad eggs
that are still stinking up the joint. "The Big Brother
House is now a freak nest.
COMPETITION: Socket To Me
The houseguests need to
order up the correct sequence of houseguests within the
past 10 weeks in the fastest time in order to win. They
do so by connecting sockets to each other and to a big
honking generator. Drew connects veto winners, letting
out an S-bomb and saying "I'm an idiot, I'm an idiot,
I'm an idiot" over his forgetting that he won the veto.
Final time: 14:27.
Diane has the same
challenge, as she thinks she has to prevent Nakomis from
winning the veto, even if it means winning the veto for
herself. Final time: 4:14
Michael gets the same
challenge... "I won this sucker." Scott, Jase, Nakomis,
Jase again, Drew, Adria twice, then Karen, then Diane
twice. Final time: 2:13. His only worry? Nakomis, who
dies after completing her round. Final time: 6:13
Michael wins it where it
counts. And what does he do? Tells Nakomis of the
agreement between the other three. Nakomis vows to take
him to the end, playing the blood-is-thicker card.
Michael counters with last week's campaigning to get him
out of the house. It's sister versus friend. Once again,
head versus heart. Head over heart for Nakomis once
again as she feels horrible having to lie to stay in the
game. This breaks her down to about 160 decibels and
some tears. Diane sees it as a front. "I've never seen
anybody cry so much and not shed a tear." Diane quickly
says that the front may indeed send her home. "It's in
Next morning, Diane
reminds Michael that Nakomis wanted him out and that she
wants to be next to him at the end. They agree that
it'll be the final two of Diane and Cowboy if she wins
the HOH next week. And now, the pinky swear. If Diane
doesn't deliver, Cowboy gets one of her fingers.
Tonight's Veto Ceremony
is unique in that Michael is safe alongside Drew,
meaning that if he uses it, the other houseguest will be
evicted spot-on. In the Diary Room, Michael feels the
pressure of the decision weighing on him. April told him
to step up. And he's done so. Now he's choosing between
his sister (who wanted him out last week) and his friend
(who wanted him out on countless occasions in the past).
This is what we call a catch-22, or as Bart Simpson more
famously put it, "You're damned if you do, and you're
damned if you don't." The blood bond will not factor in
this decision, which is forthcoming.
Meanwhile, if you have
what it takes to backbite, shake dice, and kiss your gal
on Sunday for three months, CBS wants to have a little
chat with you. Go to CBS.com if you want to be a part of
Big Brother 6 next summer.
And now, the veto/famous
last words. Diane says that she proved her trust three
weeks running, and will honor his trust now. Nakomis
brings dad's grounding into the picture. Michael's
decision, once again, not a personal decision. Factoring
in the promise he made and the promise Nakomis broke,
Michael uses the veto to a) save Diane, and b) evict
Nakomis. "Door door door!" The first person to walk out
the door and not hold a grudge, Nakomis hugs all around,
we're all happy, we're all smiley, get out.
It's a little darker,
because it's a little later, and Diane has to pee before
we come back for the HOH. Meanwhile, Nakomis is not
really shocked by Michael's decision. If he's a nice
person outside of the house (meaning that he doesn't act
all snarky vis-a-vis his actions in the house) sure
she'll chill. She wants to meet April and Chase.
Meanwhile, we all laud her Six-Finger plan and her twins
eviction, while Cowboy is now pretty much vulnerable,
not having heard the conversation between him and Diane.
She calls Drew as winner and says that Cowboy won't be
receiving her vote. Someone's a little bitter.
FINAL HEAD of
HOUSEHOLD COMPETITION: ROUND 1
Drew, Michael, and Diane
will compete. It's three parts, with the winners of
parts 1 and 2 facing off in part 3. For the final three,
it's an endurance trial a la Survivor's Hands on the
Idol. Last one standing moves on to round 3. One hand on
the key, both feet on their pedestal. No sleeping,
eating, or bathroom breaks.
Oh, and one final
twist... do not assume that those rocks will stay in
place for long, as we exit to... an earthquake. We'll
wrap up this and the other rounds Friday.
