Shelli and Liz won Head of Household. Shelli is like a pig in shit to have all of the power again. Liz goes to the camera and sends a special message to Julia that she won it just for her. Barf. Austin is freaked out that there was an unaccounted for vote to keep Jeff. He brings his concerns that someone “lied to his face” about the vote to Liz (ie: the person who “lied to his face” about the vote). Poor, romantic fool. The best thing for Austin’s game would be for Jizz to get evicted.
Nauseating Shelli and Clay showmance montage.
In the HoH room, Liz’s photos have all been strategically edited to remove Julia. Shelli gets a letter from her dog. Jason jokes that the dog probably writes more intelligently than Clay. Oh, snap! Liz’s mom tells her not to cry because she cries ugly.
Silly (ie: stupid) household hijinks montage.
Shelli sits down with Jackie for a state of the household meeting. Jackie lets her know that Austin has been sharing Sixth Sense information. “That’s not cool, Austin.” Shut up, Shelli. You’re right but shut up anyway. Shelli warns Vanessa that Austin is an unreliable alliance member. Vanessa starts repeating the same facts over and over. Because, Vanessa. Shelli wants to keep control but she doesn’t want to put Dr John up again. And then she decides to put Dr John up again.
Liz nominates James and Jackie. Shelli nominates Jason and Dr John. Shelli tells Jason that she heard he was coming for her so she had to nominate him. You’ll never guess who told her that… Hi, Audrey. I see you over there, stirring the pot. Dr John points out that he’s been nominated at all four nomination ceremonies. “If the game was called Get Nominated, I would have won by now!”
At the twin swap, Liz gets to tell Julia that she won HoH. Lots of squealing. She also tells Julia she voted to evict James over Jeff. Liz claims to not know why she did it (“I don’t knoooow”) but Julia knows better. “…because you like him.”
Oo-ooh, Shelli catches Audrey in a lie. Is Audrey finally going to alienate her protectors, the Sixth Sense? That’s called overplaying your hand, young lady.
Battle of the Block
Clay, in a long blond wig and flannel, calls the houseguests to the Battle of the Block competition. Since it’s 90’s week, the BoB is based on grunge music. Each team has a dummy named Alice wrapped in chains (Alice Chains). They need to search through various obstacles to find four keys to unlock Alice. Once Alice is free, they must transport her to nirvana (Nirvana) to win. Just to make things more fun, and messy, in order to get to each obstacle (and key), players must slog thru a pit of muddy honey (Mud Honey).
Jason and Dr John jump into a pool of jam with pearls floating in it (Pearl Jam). Jason quickly finds a key and he and Dr John race back to Alice to unlock their first lock. James and Jackie are searching for a key in a huge pile of leaves (32 Leaves or Oleander? I’m woefully uneducated when it comes to grunge and I didn’t catch the band name associated with this obstacle). Jason and Dr John join them but Dr John notices a key just sitting there (probably uncovered when James and Jackie were throwing leaves around). He grabs it and they rush back to Alice to unlock their second lock. James also finds a key and he and Jackie run back to Alice to unlock their first lock. My tv keeps cutting out so at some point I missed the teams searching through a garden of vegetables and amplifiers (Sound Garden). Finally they head into the Smashing Pumpkins obstacle, where they must literally break open pumpkins to find key. James and Jackie have somehow caught up. It’s all down to the pumpkins. Both teams really want to win and it turns into a mosh pit. James and Jackie find their final key and start to drag Alice to nirvana. Jason find his last key and they race back to Alice but it’s too late. James and Jackie win!
Since Liz has been dethroned, Clay informs her she no longer smell like tea-n spirit and she gets doused with tea. But that’s not all. Clay informs the losers (Jason, Dr John and Liz) that they are forming a new boy band called the Whack Street boys. Every time their pager goes off, they have to find their bandmates and perform.
On Wednesday: Veto competition
