THE STORY SO FAR! A twist from the Comicverse spelled safety for Jag, but that would put everyone in the HOH. Jared outlasted the competition to win the keys to the Master Bedroom, sending Cameron & Red onto the block.

Jared confirms that Cam is the main target, while Red is convinced that Cam had something to do with him being on the block. Jag doesn't think he can trust Cirie anymore, but he still wants to work with the 7 Deadly Sins.

Jared & Cam talk in the HOH room. Cam still thinks REd is the target and tells Jared what he wants to hear.

Time to choose players for the Veto Competition! Jared picks Felicia, Red picks America, and Cam picks Matt. Jared is going on a mission to trash America, saying he'll backdoor her at the first hint that she'll throw the Veto. Cory thinks Jared is freaking out for something that will not happen - America saying Cam. He pulls America aside and says that people think she throws competitions.

VETO COMPETITION #5: "Sludge Stackers". Stack 36 miniature bottles into a pyramid with tweezers. The first person to finish wins the Power of Veto.
- WINNER: Cameron Hardin.

Felicia & Cirie play catchup. Felicia thinks America or Bowie Jane will sit next to Red. America heard this and talks to Jared, saying she's furious that people think she throws comps.

In the backyard, Red basically has a conscious uncoupling with Cam. Cirie also realizes that it's not in her interests to keep Jag in the house.

VETO MEETING #5: Cam decides to take himself off the block.

Who will be evicted this week - Red or Jag? Find out live tomorrow night.

ROUND 1: John and Brad are tied at 400 to 300 for Lorena. Kelly sweeps the Master Minds with 700 to Beastie's 600 & Jonathan's 400.

ROUND 2: Going into the 400-point question, the challenger board reads 1200 - 900 - 1000, with John leading. Kelly assures herself of a Speed Round berth with 1500 to 1200 for Mark & 1000 for Jonathan.

SPEED ROUND: John sweeps the round to win, 4700-1300. Mark edges out Kelly to win, 4100-3500.

And we are tied, so John will have one more question to win the $10,000....

ULTIMATE TRIVIA QUESTION: If you just traveled through three adjacent US states that all start with the same letter, which three states were they?
- John went with Indiana, Illnois, and Iowa... with authority! He returns tomorrow with $10,000!
