When we last left the house - Frenchie/Britini were on the block. Can they save themselves from the block with the Power of Veto? Let's go back to the house!

We get reactions after the nomination ceremony from Kyland, Frenchie (and he has a high opinion of himself), Brent, and Britini (who feels betrayed by Kyland).

Jokers are upset that two team members are up on the block (Derek F.).  Frenchie wants to win the veto for Britini.

Kings meet. Alyssa is happy that Frenchie is on the block - it keeps the target off them.

Queens meet - and they are happy with the way Kyland handle things. They want to send Frenchie home.

Aces meet - Whitney is happy with Frenchie on the block.

Kyland and Frenchie meet in the HOH room. Kyland says that he will do everything to make sure Frenchie DOES NOT win the veto. Kyland and Britini meet. Britini needs to fight with her life.

Brent and Hannah talk in his accent :) They are flirting a little.

Frenchie is bitching about jocks teaming up with the Jokers. Frenchie is upset that his name is being thrown around. So he decides to talk about the Slaughterhouse alliance to everyone in the house. Azah trusts the information. Tiffany is not having it. Claire isn't either. Frenchie thinks he is awesome for throwing the Slaughterhouse under the bus.

Kyland needs Frenchie to stay on the block.

Christian/Xavier wrap Alyssa in TP for her 25th birthday tomorrow. After that, they speak about game.

It's Veto Competition time. Frenchie/Kyland/Britini draw for their other 3 people in the competition.
- Kyland picks Alyssa
- Frenchie picks Claire
- Britini draws Derek X.

Frenchie knows it's him or nothing.

VETO COMP TIME! Britini reads the note from the producers:

VETO COMPETITION #2: FUN-TAN LOTION. THE COMPETITION IS HEATING UP AND YOU DON'T WANT TO GET BURNED. TO WIN THE GOLDEN POWER OF VETO, FILL YOUR CONTAINER WITH SUNTAN OIL IN THE FASTEST AMOUNT OF TIME AND GET THE WHISTLE. IT'S NOT AS EASY AS IT LOOKS. THE SUNTAN OIL BOTTLES WILL BE SQUIRTING OIL IN DIFFERENT PATTERNS AND DIFFERENT AMOUNTS FOR DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF TIME. YOU HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THE MOST OIL IN THE FASTEST TIME. THE PERSON WHO FILLS UP THE CONTAINER THE FASTEST AND RETRIEVES THEIR WHISTLE WILL WIN THE GOLDEN POWER OF VETO.

Times:
- CLAIRE - 5:33
- KYLAND - 4:54
- BRITINI - 5:08
- DEREK X - 4:41
- ALYSSA - 6:57
- FRENCHIE - 5:06
Winner - Derek X(2 Veto Comps in a row)

Britini is crushed. Frenchie knows he is out but he is going to hold his head high. But Frenchie is done. He knows he's done. Derek & Asha want him to fight. Derek F is in his corner. Frenchie says that worked and he is back.

Kyland & Frenchie talk in the HOH room with Derek X. Frenchie makes his last minute pitch. Doesn't help though. Derek X does NOT use the POV. Frenchie & Britini stay on the block. We get reactions from Frenchie, Britini, Derek X, Kyland, and Derek F.

Who will go home tomorrow night? Frenchie or Britini (but we know who is don't we?). Find out next time!

Big Ten Boys
Reed, Colin, Rylie
Barre Belles
Christine, Voshanae, Kay

ROUND 1: Bling, Cha-Ching, Flowers, Now We're Cookin'

No community bonus as the game is knotted up at 30.

ROUND 2: Beauty Tips, Housekeeping, Just Desserts, Parenting

Perfect front end means that the score is tied at 190. Barre Belles go with Housekeeping - What does Good Housekeeping suggest pouring on the corner of baking trays to remove stubborn stains: a) Club soda b) Tea tree oil c) Fabric softener? They go with A... but it's C! The Big Ten Boys finally break through to lead, 210-190.

WRITE-IN ROUND: Schools, Literature, Fun & Games, Music
- Barre Belles: FUN & GAMES - What is the highest number found on a roulette wheel? They say 90... To the Big Ten Boys with 36. THAT's right for 200.
- Big Ten Boys: MUSIC - In music, an F-sharp can also be expressed as what flat note? They say G-flat.... RIGHT to lead, 610-190.
- Barre Belles: SCHOOLS - The team name of which US military academy is the Falcons? They go with Air Force... RIGHT!
- Big Ten Boys: LITERATURE to end it - What word referring to an introduction to a book or play comes from teh Greek word meaning "speech before"? They say prelude... Nope. Barre Belles can steal the game away with opening... except that's not right either. It was prologue, and the Big Ten Boys survive, 610-590!

BONUS ROUND for the Big Ten Boys: Colin doesn't know what of 5, 7, or 9 on a standard Apple iPhone keypad only has three letters (5). Ryle doesn't know what novel has a zipline called "an inclined string" (The Invisible Man). And Reed doesn't know that lanolin comes from wool.

The clues to said flavors are inside the kitchen, but the design is completely up to you. The task: make a cake that's worth $100,000. The clues... raspberry, heavy cream, vanilla, espresso, cocoa powder, caramel, three tiers of cake, and buttermilk. Whatever you do with it is completely up to you.

$66,405

Elizabeth Devereaux

Matt Amodio

As a reminder, all winnings today will be matched by Jeopardy! in funds donated to Be the Match.

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Med School, Sing "Out", Exodus Tell Us...; 2 Letters, 3 Letters;, 15 Minutes or Less, We Guarantee It

Josh starts with $400 Med School. Matt finds the Daily Double under $800 Exodus Tells Us.... He goes all-in on this:
- "I will smite all thy borders with" these creatures: "and the river shall bring forth" them "abundantly"
"What are frogs?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $3600! He ends up with $7400 to $5000 for Josh. Elizabeth has $3400 and the first pick in...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: European Peninsulas, Birding, Math in the Old Days, They've Got an EGOT, Books of 1990, You "Pic" It

... with the first Daily Double under $1200 European Peninsulas. She wagers all of her money on this:
- The name of this French region that protrudes into the Atlantic has a name related to the land to its north.
"What is Brittany?" FOR THE DOUBLER, $6800! Josh gets the next four for a total of $9000 when he finds the other under $1200 Math in the Old Days. He bets a big $6000 on this:
- Their numerals weren't handy for arithmetic, so ancient Romans did most of their calculating on this device.
"What is an abacus?" RIGHT FOR $15,000! He ends up with $19,800 to $20,200. Elizabeth still in the fight with $12,400.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "African Monarchs": Some devotees of this emperor who died in 1975 trace his lineage to King Solomon & the Queen of Sheba. Correct response: who was Haile Selassie?

Josh is right, but he holds back. Matt is right... and he doubles to win $40,400! Josh leaves with $68,405.

MYSTERY BOX #2: Inside of your boxes are some of the best ingredients California has to offer - Santa Barbara prawns, sea urchin, wasabi, avocado, and grapefruit. Here to judge what you make from these ingredients... a Legend of California Cuisine, Jonatahn Waxman. You have one hour to make your dishes shine, and the winner not only gets a spot in the top 9, but also gets a dinner for four at Barbuto, Waxman's NYC eatery.

Joseph's dish was universally and unequivocably panned, and on any other night, he would be going home. BUT this was about using all the ingredients in the Mystery Box. ALL of them. And because competitions have rules and standards which must be followed...
