THE STORY SO FAR! Turner as the Head of Household nominates Brittany and Taylor for eviction with an eye for backdooring Michael. Kyle's game completely blows up in his face when he's accused of being a racist, but we'll get to more of that later, as a decision on the Veto (won by Michael) is still pending.

We've reached day 58 inside the house, and the ramifications of the Split House twist are still playing out with Kyle's thoughts about "another Cookout" coming to the surface. He talks to Monte and Terrance, the only two African American males left in the house. Understandably upset over the assumption that Kyle was gunning for Taylor, Joseph, and Monte based on race, Terrance notes that Joseph was evicted on a lie and says that Kyle should've left.

The house meets about this development, where Kyle apologizes for what he's about to say... throwing Brittany and Alyssa under the bus. Terrance, still justifiably pissed, wonders why, if Brittany and Michael were all against Kyle's plan, didn't they say or do anything about it? Using privilege to not use privilege is still using privilege after all. If he knew then what he knows now, Joseph would have never gone home. Kyle admits he has a lot of growing and work to do as a person.

Here's the thing, though. The camera never creates something. TV doesn't create character. It reveals it.

Now the Veto Meeting...

VETO MEETING #8: Michael uses the Veto to save Brittany.
- NOMINEES: Taylor Hale, Kyle Capener.

Seeing Kyle for what he is... perhaps for the first time, Alyssa breaks up the showmance. She's not interested in fixing "broken men". Kyle tries to make amends with Monte (to the point of crying)  before his ultimate demise. As a human, as a man, Monte still loves Kyle. But again, why did Brittany and Michael wait for so long with this information?

LIVE EVICTION #7: As a reminder, nominees Taylor and Kyle do not vote, nor does HOH Turner. The vote to evict is 3.
- EVICTED UNANIMOUSLY, AND WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE: Kyle Capener

Before the next HOH, we have an announcement... the Zingbot has been activated and will return to the house Sunday. But first...

HOH COMPETITION #9: Burning Bot. Transfer puzzle pieces, one at a time, across the yard. First to finish their puzzle becomes the new HOH.

We will see how this plays out NEXT TIME.
