episode being a clip show, the Friday & Sunday events will, in
rare form, be combined)
The story so far! The cabal of Paul and whoever Paul is teaming up
with THIS WEEK has successfully gotten rid of both Cody and Elena.
The bad news: they're on the jury to decide who wins this thing.
Derrick Levasseur pops in and, rather than moving in, which would
make the game THAT MUCH MORE interesting, he ends up turning this
whole hour into a bottle episode. That serves two purposes: 1) to
catch us up on the season so far, and 2) to serve as fodder for...
HOH COMPETITION #10: Tales from Decrypt. Hope you remembered all
the stories Derrick told you, because now he's going to quiz you
on them. The last one standing wins HOH.
- WINNER: Christmas Abbott
Oh look, Paul threw the HOH so he could compete in HOH next week
when he's more vulnerable. He doesn't feel bad about it either.
Nor does he feel bad about being the third wheel to Alex &
Jason... and Matt & Raven... AND Christmas & Josh.
But look, a new twist!
TREE OF TEMPTATION: this will play out for the next three weeks.
There is a tree in the house with five apples on it. Inside each
apple is a power or punishment. When the Tree turns red, the first
Houseguest to go into the Diary Room and claim an apple will be
able to do so. But the apple had to be used THIS WEEK. Two
caveats: 1) a Houseguest can only claim one apple, so they must
determine when it is in their best interests to do so, and 2) the
Tree of Temptation will always light up BEFORE a Nomination
Mark was the first to claim an apple and chose.... SAVE A FRIEND.
The problem: he has no friends in the house left, so he's left to
do the one thing he can given the circumstances.
NOMINATION CEREMONY #10: Before Christmas announces her
nominations, Mark uses the Apple to save Paul.
- NOMINEES: Matt Clines, Jason Dent
Christmas put Mark on blast for continuing to align himself with
"selfish" people. Gee, she couldn't be referring to...

on the wall board. Along the way, you can use one of THREE power
ups - Candy Cloud (clouds your opponent's wall for 10 seconds),

team to 50 matches wins $100,000!
