"Eviction Night: Kaysar vs.
Ashlea" - July 14
Last time, secrets were
revealed (in the form of the gold room), and Rachel won
the first power of veto, but decided not to exercise it,
leaving the nominations as is. Tonight, either Kaysar or
Ashlea will have the dubious honor of being voted out
But before we vote
anyone out, we have to find out who is playing with
But before THAT, let's
see Kaysar and Ashlea fight it out for votes. Ashlea
totally expected Rachel not to use the veto, as she coys
up to Howie for protection. Howie would keep Ashlea
around for "eye candy" only. Several of the girls
meanwhile decide to try and boot Kaysar. Janelle and
April had a conversation to this effect.
Meanwhile, Michael ogles
Jennifer. And for good reason. Good looking woman in a
bikini and all... Watching Mike through all this: Kaysar
and Eric, who thought that the guys alliance was being
shaken at the core. Kaysar decides to let Eric know that
Michael is threatening his presence (not in those
words). So he does so. "Stay close to her, but not as
close. Just tone it down." Michael's retort... he
decides to face it heads up. And by it, we mean Eric.
"Do you think I'm being too close to Jen?" Eric knew
something was up. "Somebody opened his mouth." Kaysar is
accused of breaking trust, but he and Michael try and
patch things up over foosball. "Do I worry that my time
is near? Sure, I do. But you really have to wait and see
how things play out."
That's the state of play
as we go to the houseguests live. Ivette did not like
living on PB&J for the last week. "Then our plan is
working," Julie says. Creepy. Howie loves living in a
house filled with eight beautiful women. "I'm not mad at
Big Brother for doing that." Janelle thinks that Howie
has the best sense of humor... and Julie probably has to
agree. Sarah loves the new gold room, the first of many
secrets, as Julie divulges the theme of this series of
Big Brother.... and leaves it at that. "I told you that
wasn't the end!" Howie says.
And one of them will be
revealed later, but first, tonight is eviction night. Of
the 14 houseguests still in the game, only 11 may vote.
Nominees Kaysar and Ashlea may not vote, and neither can
HOH Rachel. Let's go to the Diary room... Janelle is
closer to both of the nominees. Ivette thinks that
Ashlea is annoying. Sarah doesn't view her as a threat.
Janelle "really doesn't want to get rid of him." Ivette
is wondering whether or not to trust Kaysar's words as
HOH. Hypothetically speaking. We end with Janelle voting
to evict Kaysar.
And now, the moment
you've been waiting for... SECRET TEAMS! They are...
Ivette (who wants
Eric's wife to know that she's gay) & Beau:
friends and former co-workers. Beau thinks that no one
knows, but Ashlea knows and she's talking.
Kaysar & Michael: Neighbors. Michael warns Kaysar
that "we're not the only ones" and that "April knows
Maggie & Eric: friends. Maggie's boyfriend is on
the same precinct as Eric. She thinks that Janelle is
awfully pushing Ashlea to stay... There's a reason for
James & Sarah: dating. Cue the two flirting with
each other. She wants shinies.
April & Jennifer: sorority sisters (C-Note: Oh
GREAT...). April knows that other twists are afoot.
Janelle & Ashlea: friends and ex-roommates. "If
Ashlea goes this week, it'll be the young beautiful
people versus... the Latin Chick and the little gay
Rachel & Howie: friends. No one suspect them
being even that close.
Each team has no idea
that the Big Brother prize is $1 million this year. They
can either choose to disclose the secret or keep the
housemates guessing. With that, we go to the HOH room to
talk to Rachel. Rachel likes the power, and believes
that it worked right into her plan. How hard is it to
act like a stranger? "Not too hard, but I'm just
watching him make everyone laugh." The two of them were
the last two standing on the orange surfboard, when
Rachel told him to get off. About the last two Rachel
discoveries, she wanted to make the reveal fun... So she
More on Sarah & James in
a bit, but first... back to the diary room. Maggie
thinks Ashlea is "prettier than everyone else." Howie
can't stop thinking about her boobies. Jennifer thinks
Ashlea is very egocentrical. Howie thinks Kaysar is a
better massager. Michael thinks Kaysar is a better ally,
voting to evict Ashlea.
Now to James & Sarah.
James and Kaysar think that Sarah's the hottest girl in
the house. Of course James would think that. Sarah
thinks that it's hard not to show any emotion in the
house. James agrees as the two share a shower. Sarah
thinks that they're finding ways to show their emotions
secretly. Among them... crossing fingers at each other.
Sarah knows that the other girls adore James. James is
being kept on the straight and narrow, saying that Sarah
is threatened by the rest of the girls getting close.
"In my head, I think we can pull this off, but in my
heart, there's some reservation." We end this segment
with: "I love you, (^_^)/I love you too, jerk." Funny,
Kathleen (my GF) and I say the same thing.
Back to the diary
room... April thinks Ashlea is high maintenance. Eric
thinks she's a tool. Beau cites something about Barbie
dolls. Eric thinks Kaysar is a rat. James agrees, voting
to evict him.
Now the moment of truth.
Final words for Kaysar... standing: "I respect your
decision. It's tough being on the block, but someone has
to be up here. I want to thank everyone for a very
enriching experience, and I hope that there's more weeks
Final words for
Ashlea... sitting: "Thank you for everyone here. I had
the best time. Thank you for letting me share in this."
And now, the guillotine.
Remember, once Julie makes the decision public, the
evicted houseguest will have one minute to say goodbye,
pack their stuff, and exit through the front door. After
some fumbling with the results, Julie puts on her best
Ryan Seacrest face, not too hard, and says...
"By a vote of 9 to 2,
Kaysar.... you are safe." Ashlea Evans is the first
person evicted from the Big Brother House. Did she take
it personally? "I really didn't get to connect with her
at all this week." How hard was it to keep her secret?
"We got to spend our time together. It was really hard."
Knowing it was the goal to make it to the end, she
doesn't think she played hard enough to stay in the
house. And Janelle's chances? "I think it's gonna be
really hard. She went against the majority rules. I
think her and Howie may be going up next." And speaking
of Janelle, we have a goodbye message from her: "It's
not your fault. The reason you've been evicted is
because you look good in a bikini. Playing the game
without you is going to be hard, but you're my best
friend forever. I will take care of those people behind
your eviction. Guaranteed." With that, Julie lets Ashlea
know EVERYTHING. Ashlea's response: "I knew it! I knew
Bo & Ivette knew each other!" Just a reminder from
Julie, this is a Summer of Secrets, and you never know
what's going to happen, but for now... please get off
