"Eviction Night: April vs.
Howie" - September 8
Last time we were here, we
had ourselves a bit of a plot to get April out of the
house. So far, it's only come halfway to fruition, as
she is on the block. Joining her, of course, is Howie.
It is now day 68, and one of these two will be the
newest member of the jury.
Of course, the last time
we were here, Janelle vetoed herself, while April, who
views the move as lose-lose, is now in dire straits.
Here's how Howie sees it playing out. Janie votes to
evict April. Maggie votes to evict Howie. Ivette is the
swing vote. Janelle thinks that keeping Howie around is
an easy out to the money. "It could be like a 'Star
Wars' movie," Howie begins to fanboy up, "the Clones
turn on the Jedis. Ivette turns on April, and then we
wipe out Maggie. We've been good Jedis for long."
Welcome to the dark side, Howie.
Maggie & April spy on
the rest of the guests. April thinks that Ivette is
immovable, but doesn't know anything beyond that. What
we do know is that Howie thinks that Maggie will move on
to the next round regardless of who wins HOH. "It's a
get-rich-quick scheme." They say that if she votes April
out, then she's assured top 3. "True friends will be
friends with outside this house. You are in a position
now to win a lot of money." Ivette thinks that there is
truth of what Howie is saying, saying that there's no
way she can tell what Maggie & April are doing.
She talks to Maggie &
April about this. "Everyone in this house deserves the
money," April says. "I have credit cards." Yeah, but my
thing is that some people deserve the money more than
you, April. "She's not here for the money, and the
closer we get, the more she talks about the money.
There's nothing more that I would want than to win the
money for my family."
Going to the living room
live. Ivette never thought she would make it this far.
Howie, as the only man, sees these "beautiful" women as
step-sisters. Janelle gets fan-service from CBS, as she
thinks that the swimming challenges were the hardest.
April, on day 38 without a smoke, thinks she'll keep it
up after she leaves. Maggie gets more fan-service, as
living in the house has messed up her entire schedule.
Do Ivette's mother and
her girlfriend agree with the way she's playing the
game, and do they think that her loyalty to the
Friendship will cost her the $500,000? Let's ask. "Ivette's
mouth gets her in trouble, a lot of the time,
practically all the time," says Maggie (Ivette's GF).
"She's never been a crier." About Cappy: "I hate
Ivette's obsession with him." And mom? "She's been a lot
closer to him, and to James. She forgot about Beau! You
didn't go there to make friends. You went there to win
at a game." Maggie admits that she likes Janelle, who
she thinks is a good player. "I do see where Ivette may
Let's go to Ivette in
the HOH room. Last week, Beau was evicted, moments
before she won HOH. How important is the money? "The
main reason for coming out is my family. It would make a
world of difference."
Let's go to the Jury
House, as outdoorsy Rachel and city girl Jen are now
joined by ... Jimbo. And, of course, the obligatory
screw you. Jen was play-acting. Rachel was disappointed.
As we watch last week's footage, it becomes obvious that
Rachel is getting ever more disappointed and Jen & James
are going to start getting at each other's throats.
Quote of the night from James: "America hates you,
April! I'm just kidding. No I'm not, America hates you."
And before all is said and done... Beau arrives...
another double eviction casualty. James carries him over
Last words from the
nominees. Here's April: "Thanks to Matt, mom and dad, my
family and friends. Thanks to the Dorks. Thank you so
much, and I would love to stay another week. Just vote
where your heart's at." Howie: "Who could settle me
down? Little Jen-Jen from BB6, Holly from BB5. If you
weren't married, Julie... Jedi Janie, you'll go on to be
a better Jedi than I can ever imagine. But you got your
hands full. I can't wait to see the battle.
Now to the vote. As
Howie has predicted...
So it's all on HOH
Ivette. Is this a strategic vote or a personal one?
"April, you're a wonderful friends. Howie, you've
brought so many laughs in this house. But unfortunately,
I have to evict you, Howie."
So we're left with an
all-female final four. What happened to his alliance?
"James. I thought we had some powerful alliances. I
couldn't take a shot at James blindsiding me, and
everything was downhill from here. I wanted to vote out
Maggie from week 2, and ever since then, I fumbled the
football. There's a million things that could've
changed. I got beat by a nerd herd. Janelle is the
strongest player in this game. She's a Big Brother
We'll see Howie on
Finale Night, but meanwhile, America has another choice
to make. This time, it's to see who will sit in on a
taping of the new season of "Two and a Half Men". Go to
CBS.com and cast your vote.
