Vocabulary - August 19
The story so far:
EVICTED: Carol, Joe, Mike, Nick, Kail
Last week at this time, the Donatos were about to
be separated form the house...until those lovely CBS producers and Eric
convinced the rest of the house guests to completely throw strategy out the
window and get rid of Dustin instead.
Dustin calls it interesting. Amber...cries. Shocker. Dick says he pulled off the
coup of the century, adding that he was shocked that based on him trying to get
himself kicked out of the house. Daniele is impressed that the 2 most hated
people in the house are still here. Amber...cries some more. Eric apologizes to
Jameka, who says that nothing makes sense. Apparently, the Bible is not going to
help either Jameka nor Amber, who....cries. Amber says that she never tried to
play anyone, but she has a history of making fun of people only for said people
to come bite her in the butt.
Of course, with Daniele winning the HOH, this puts both Amber and Jameka in
trouble, because they both know that they have dissed both of them. Meanwhile,
Eric and Jessica, who switched over to the Donatos, are thrilled that they are
safe. Daniele wants to be satisfied when someone gets evicted - so she's going
to listen to any and all people - including Eric and Jessica, who she jokingly
says that she's going to put up. As she leaves, Eric gives her a disgusted look.
Jessica still wants to make sure that she's friends with Jameka. She explains to
Jameka that she would rather see Dustin gone because at least she knows what
Dick is going to do. Meanwhile they discuss Eric's behavior, with Jameka adding
that something ain't right. That's because America > Eric...
We get the second tour of Daniele's Head of Household tour, which features daddy
Dick having a bad hair day and Daniele being a brunette. Zach was wondering
where the pictures of Daniele's boyfriend is. No boyfriend, but she gets a
letter from Nick, complete with sparkles, glitter and a poster book. Eric - 'It
looks like something that a 13 year old girl would have concocted'. Heh. Nick
says that he can't wait to see her again, and Daniele thought it was really
really nice. AwwwwBarf.
Daniele comes to Amber, who says that it sucks. Daniele tells her that it had
nothing to do with her. Amber tells Daniele to do what's in her best interest,
adding that she's not going to fight the nominations. They both discuss how hard
her situation is, but Daniele says that strategically, she needs to go. Well
Amber and Jameka are having a discussion about Amber's lack of verbal knowledge.
Amber wants to know what the following words mean - outed, superficial,
charismatic, implication, perceived, and sub-alliances. Dick - 'I wonder if her
knowledge of vocabulary is exceeded by her daughter.' I wonder if she knows what
Now it's Eric (who is perceived as the pariah) to tell Amber that it was
strategy, adding that if any of them would win HOH, he'd be the person out of
the house. He's probably right there. He tells Amber that the decision has
nothing to do with his feelings for her, while Amber says that they should all
get together. Eric better.
Beer Pong time! The objective is to get a small ball in a set of cups and to
drink the contents in it (usually alcohol). For the winners, it's time to get
drunk, but for the losers, it's time to own up to their wager. Eric, who
apparently is as good at Beer Pong as he is at getting Dick out of the house,
has to first wear booty shorts, then swap clothing with Jessica, which in this
case included wearing a dress. Jessica noted that Eric filled the dress up very
nice, and Eric admits that it looked good on him. You know Eric, there are
places in NYC that will pay you for that.
Amber and Jameka called Dick into the house, and NOW they want to talk. Jameka
wondered what happened. Dick told them that he cared so much for his daughter
that he would make them upset so they can vote him out. However, once Dustin put
himself on the block, it gave him a ray of hope because a lot of people didn't
like his attitude or ego. Though Dick (for the most part) is telling the truth,
Jameka and Amber both realize that Jessica and Eric made a deal with Dick, and
they will align themselves to the final four. In addition, they realize that
they don't have the votes and are now promptly screwed. Too little, too late...
Daniele comes out in a toga, but it's not because she lost a dare. It's
because it's time for the food competition! This time, it's human sized beer
pong, complete with rubber balls and garbage cans. It's Dick, Zach, Eric and
Jessica Vs. Jen, Amber, Jameka and Daniele. If both teams can get a ball in the
can labeled 'Feast', then both teams will have a hearty meal. The Red team did
hit it in the 'Feast' Can, and Dick really, REALLY wants to put both Amber and
Jameka on slop. Blue ties the score at 9-9, and it's the next team that gets it
in wins. The final shot is made by...Eric, who finally sinks a shot for the win.
Amber, Jameka and Jen are all now on slop for the week, while Daniele, as Head
of Household, is immune from it. Jameka wonders if being on slop will make her
any less of a target. Uhhh...nope.
The team comes in to see a smaller table in the kitchen area. They realize that
the game is now really starting to heat up. They also realize that it's going to
be much harder to play beer pong. Heh.
Eric tells Jessica that they are now officially bas asses. He wants a kiss,
while Jessica tells Eric that Julie wanted to know if she has feelings for Eric.
Dick comes in and wants to see some action, while as Dick leaves, Eric and
Jessica does some more googooing.
Daniele and Jen discusses options. Jen wants to know what her position is in the
house. Daniele trusts Jen as far as she can throw her, remembering that Jen only
used her to save her own ass. Eric wonder who America wants to get banished.
America gives him an easy assignment this week - Amber. Eric comes to tell both
of them and they all wonder what she is still doing in the house. Eric wants to
make this week the week to torture Amber. Daniele doesn't trust Eric either -
nor should she, as they were only at each other's throats last week. Whereas I
agree that Eric needs to go - soon - doing it now would be a tremendous error in
It's time for the nominations Amber is convinced that she's going up because she
gets along with everybody (HA!). Jameka is convinced that she is going up as
well. jen is convinced that she isn't - because Daniele told her. Speaking of
which, Daniele knows that all of these people will now be in the jury. Eric is
convinced that he and Jessica will be safe, while Daniele says that certain
people who have been under the radar do not deserve to win this game.
On that note, Daniele calls everyone over. She says that the nominations are for
strategic reasons, and not personally, adding that Jessica, who nominated her
last week, is the first person safe. Also safe is Dick, Zach, Jen, and...Eric.
Of course, it's Amber and Jameka who are up, but she at least says that the
reason why they are there is because they are so nice to everyone that she
doesn't want to be against either of them at the end. That sounds nice - but the
real person she wants to get rid of is Jen, hence back-dooring her. I'm not sure
if I agree with that strategy, because while Jen is a competitor, she may not
have a problem with Daniele, while both Amber and Jameka will have no problem
with putting both her and Dick up. So what will happen? We'll see in 2 days if
Daniele can get her plan in motion.
