Eviction Night 5 - August 9
The story so far:
EVICTED: Carol, Joe, Mike, Nick
Veto winner: Jen (saves herself)
Nominees: Eric & Kail
Eric is all but outed as a lone shark in a sea of
guppies, and one can only wonder if he can hold on any longer. The live eviction
is only half an hour away in this, the 41st day in the house
Eric's safety is in the hands of four other
people. Meanwhile, Kail thinks that everyone loves Eric more than her. That's
what she thinks, as Dick notes that he only needs one more vote to get Eric out
of the house. Amber swears on her girl's life that she, Dustin, and Jameka will
work to save Eric. Meanwhile, Dick has a problem trusting Kail. But that won't
stop him from saving her.
Dick tries to sway Amber in the gym, which she
feels uncomfortable about. UNTIL Dick happened to bring up what happened a week
ago with him warning against Amber playing the self-righteous card given
something that happened in her past (C-Note: Yeah, that would be the pregnancy
thing). Dick never lied to anyone. He wants to seal the deal.
Amber goes to Dustin about it. Dustin says that
Eric is not exactly a big threat to him. He doesn't think that he has anything
about him, henceforth no big threat. Taking Amber's daughter out of the
equation... Amber wants him gone. Dick tries to make a deal: Dustin wins HOH and
doesn't put the Donatos up IF he gets rid of Eric. Will he bite? Nope. He wants
Dick out of this house, calling Amber a psycho. Amber says that she has to make
sure that "good people" get to the end.
And I count... oh... no one. Heh.
Amber confronts Eric on the allegations, saying
that if he wants to tell the whole g-d house, then now's the time to do it. She
hasn't lied to no one, and now he's going to use something of hers against her?
That takes balls.
All this while Amber cries.
Going live, Jameka was put in an awkward
position, but in the end, it was good to get all of that out in the open. She
wouldn't have changed a thing about her whole HoH deal. Jen agreed to give up
half the grand prize (she's not here for the money). She says that she's just
proved himself. Dustin gets a viewer question. "Why do you wear the same grey
T-shirt day in and day out?" "Well, it's all about consistency. I'm a very
So is Evil Dick really evil outside of the house?
Let's ask some of his friends... the keyboardist for Guns'n'Roses. "People drop
HIS name." How about the guitarist for Alice Cooper? "Evil Dick is definitely no
poser." How about... that one chick from Rockstar: Supernova? "He doesn't mean
to be mean. He just tells it like it is." The lead singer of some band I never
heard of? "Dick is just Dick. You either love him or you hate him." His friend
and co-promoter? "Dick is as loyal as a friend can get." The chick with the I
Heart Dick shirt? "We love you, Dick!"
Daniele? "It's just a really hard position to be
in. No one knows the real reason. It's my choice." Dad's a different person that
she is. People are afraid of him, so Daniele ends up taking the votes for him.
She's not 100% sure that Eric was the one that cast the votes to evict Kail, but
there is no evidence to the contrary.
Back to Kail, as her husband weighs in on her
gamesmanship. So far, we know that she owns two restaurants, a grocery store,
and a motel. Husband Darin thinks that this is a smart strategy to keep all of
her cards close to her. If she gives her cards away, she has little chance to
take home the gold. The houseguests have no idea who she really is. Darin
doesn't mind Dick yelling at him. Kail is downplaying her beliefs a lot. She's
downplaying a lot of things. "If Kail can get past this week, she has a better
chance to survive the rest of the game."
Final pleas from Kail? "As you all know, this is
my third time on the block. It never gets easier. I want to let you know to
thank you for the first two weeks, and I ask for another week, because I don't
take any week for granted." Eric: "I came here thinking that I was going to meet
13 strangers who were standing in my way of winning this game. That notion
didn't last long. I had some rough times this week. I hope I get to stay to work
on bonds that need to be repair."
As a reminder, Kail, Eric, and Daniele cannot
Dick: "I happily vote to evict that weasel ERIC."
With the vote at 4-3... Kail has been evicted.
Plan didn't work, Dick. "It was probably from the very beginning, winning the
first HoH..." Is this a fair way of playing from Dick? "You can only be somebody
for so long."
HoH Competition: Let's Make a Duel
Two at a time, the houseguests will answer
questions about things evicted houseguests said in the Diary Room. As current
HOH, Daniele can't play. Neither can Jameka who is currently on restriction.

beds are about 5'5 and I was thinking it would hinder my chances if I was

not one of those weepy sad rain clouds that drags everyone down." Amber?
"Carol?" Nope, it was Joe.

But how will she use her newfound power? Find out
