Michael vs. Janelle" - July 21
It's that time again. In
roughly 45 minutes, one of the secret pairs will be
dissolved (or in Janelle's case, eradicated) and another
houseguest will get the royal boot.
Taking a look inside the
house, we see Eric, the current HOH, thinking, Michael,
thinking, and Janelle... also thinking. But first, a
recap of events... Last week put the house on edge, with
fight after fight, and James giving up the power of
veto. Michael knew he wasn't going to use it, so it's up
to him to make amends here. Eric says that they're cool,
but are they? Michael doesn't want to have an air of
conflict, and he tells Eric this. "I'd like to stay in
the fight, and I'd like to win." "After the incident,
things have pretty much cooled down. It's over. It's
Back in the HOH room,
Rachel and Eric discuss Michael's "raw deal." "I don't
consider him a threat." Rachel tells Eric that Janelle
is getting exactly what she wanted. Eric wonders if he
made a right decision. He goes to April and Maggie with
what he may think is a mistake. April calls Janelle a
"strong player." "You can't underestimate anyone," Eric
says, calling Janelle "stronger than Michael."
James wonders what is
more dangerous, Janelle's strategy or Michael's loose
cannon. James cites many close calls and the fact that
he's moving Mike and Kaysar around. Janelle begins to
see some of the gossip going on. Howie says that she's
in a tough spot. He and Janelle share some time in the
gold room. "You've got the votes to say, to be honest
with you," he says, remembering the Surfboard Pact of
episode 1. "You never know what's going to happen,"
Janelle says, "I may be the one to go."
Going live, Jennifer,
still reeling from eating chocolate snake, tells
everyone that she likes PB&J. James says that the Veto
competition was grueling, having won by only 13 seconds.
Kaysar talks about the tension between houseguests. "I
think we've grown up a bit. We've come to appreciate
each other a bit." Ivette.... ehh, not so much. "I've
chosen to try and control my mouth." See what I mean?
Time to go to the Diary
Room to gauge public opinion. James says that the only
reason to keep Mike is because he's not a threat. Sarah
doesn't think he's as smart as people give him credit
for. Howie thinks that he has created so many enemies.
James thinks Janelle is capable of doing anything. Sarah
hopes that she can do some of her dirty work.
Going live to the HOH
room. Eric talks about the argument about comments of
Eric's family. "Being in a heated moment set me off a
bit. I think in hindsight, I didn't like his behavior in
the house. He has tried to intimidate me in the house.
That never occurred again, his intimidation tactics. In
the end, I think I got my point across." How did Mike
break trust? "He was hanging around Janelle a lot.
Janelle and I are like oil and water. I measure people
by the company they keep. I know that if I lost, I was
up on the block. So if I have a thought that I'd lose
trust, I don't have time to not trust anyone in this
And did we mention that
romance is heating up between the two nominees? "I was
going to try and get close to him to try and vote him
off, but then I started liking him." Michael cites
strong chemistry. Janelle says that she was dating
someone in New York... Notice I said WAS, because she
proceeds to dump his ass on semi-live TV. As for
Michael, "we kept it fairly secret... maybe." Nope. Not
a chance. April saw it.
Michael then proceeds to
pull a Spider-Man on Janelle (kissing her upside down).
They get cute for a montage. And I may be violently ill.
He caps this by saying "Pay attention to Kaysar. He
knows what he's talking about."
Back to the Diary Room
with Jennifer, April, Beau, and Ivette. Ivette calls
Janelle money-hungry. Beau relates to her. April calls
her flirty. Jennifer wants to keep Janelle because
"she's pretty to look at". Jennifer and Ivette call Mike
"uncomfortable." April says, "Michael is a pain in my
Okay, we spent this time
talking about BB6, but now let's go back to four pairs
on BB5: Project DNA. Let's play "Where are they now?"
Holly & Jase:
Holly King (and Pumpkin Patch) dated Jase for about 10
months after the series ended. "I couldn't handle
country music anymore. I don't think there's room in Los
Angeles for two hyper people like us." Jase Wirey
moved back to Georgia. "LA's a tough town. She's a city
girl and I'm a country boy."
Michael & Nakomis:
Michael Ellis and his half-sister Jennifer "Nakomis"
Dedmon hang out for the first time since leaving the
house. "It's a real big shock", she says. Michael shows
wedding photos with Scott and Drew. "Family life is
Drew & Diane: The
reigning laird of the manor on Big Brother, Drew Daniel
has decided to take up acting, landing a part on B&B
(that's "The Bold & The Beautiful"). His sweetie Diane
Henry still lives in LA, just up the block from him.
They're still friends... but that's it. "I still like to
give him hell for riding my coattail."
Adria & Natalie:
Ah, the twins. Adria Klein and Natalie Carroll revamped
their website, fitnesstwins.com, and have written a
book. "It's been back to reality, but not the norm."
All four agree that the
twist this year is "so awesome."
Diary Room time: Maggie
wants Mike gone for Eric's safety. Janelle is not going
to stay longer, because she's an easy target. Rachel
doesn't think she's dumb. Kaysar thinks this personal
and strategic decision is hard to make, asking for a
Okay, it's time. Final
words from Janelle: "It's been a pleasure getting each
and every one of you. It's been exciting. I've enjoyed
each and every minute." Final words from Michael:
"Overall, I've really had a great time. I wish you all
the best of luck."
Final words from Julie:
"By a vote of 9 to 1... Michael, you have been evicted
from the Big Brother House." They go back to the
animosity of the past week. "One of the reasons why I
was a little irritated because we had an agreement, and
I don't think he was terribly honest about it." About
the Janelle romance: "I didn't expect it. I think
Janelle's a wonderful girl." Kaysar's final words: "Hey,
Mike. Sorry things didn't work out. All the money in the
world doesn't justify hurting a friend. People in the
house made you out to be something you're not. I know
the real you, this whole situation will not be
unchallenged." Michael thinks that Kaysar's a smart guy
and he'll figure something out. On the reveal: "Too bad
I'm not collecting with Kaysar."
But then again, you
never know what's going to happen...

on life, the houseguests, and everything. The
