I was up all night watching idiots try to figure out what to do. The answer is obvious, Shelli needs to go. She’s the head of the snake. But Vanessa has decided keeping Shelli is best for her game so she is determined to bamboozle the other idiots to do her bidding. I expect her to get her way. Shelli may have the book smarts, and she may be a good poker player, but she has made some major strategy errors in her game. Keeping Shelli may be her fatal mistake. Vanessa seems to think that Shelli will be a bigger target that she can use as a shield, but any idiot knows, if there is someone who has a chance to beat you, send them out as soon as possible. Although I was up all night, the idiots continued to flip flop, I have not checked to see what the final word was, so this eviction will be a surprise to me. Let’s see what happens.
A totally irrelevant (to live feeders) montage of Clelli weeping and making out and James gunning for Shelli. They show James talking to Austin about Clelli trying to sacrifice Austin to save themselves. Austin told Vanessa that Clelli outed the Sixth Sense, which was not exactly true. Vanessa and Shelli talk and Shelli basically says she can’t campaign against Clay because it will look bad. Vanessa agrees to campaign on her behalf. Shelli is just a piece of garbage. Sidenote: production delights in showing how stupid Clay is, in these last few episodes. Clearly, they are pissed at him for falling on his sword for Shelli.
So Shelli sucks up to the sixth sense and eventually gains the twins and Austin’s trust back. Sort of. Not really. They mostly just want to keep the alliance together. God I hate Shelli.
Julie is wearing glasses this week. Perhaps they are to correct whatever was going on with her wonky eyes last week? There was a viewer soundoff where one guy cheered for Meg, a couple chicks rooted for Jmac and Davonne says all her hopes and dreams are on Jackie. That’s an interesting editorial choice I am happy to see.
The show the Clelli first kiss replete with all the sound effects.
It must be an endurance because we have not voted yet at 9:25. Jesus. Please say they are not going to do a reset.
Just when you think they are FINALLY going to vote, Derrick and Cody get a segment. They are best friends now. I love Cody and Derrick. Derrick used the money to buy a hot tub for the deck, take a vacation cruise with his family, and set up a college fund for his baby girl. Cody has been doing some modeling. Derrick likes Johnny Mack but he is rooting for James. Derrick mocks Clay and Austin for throwing their game away for a girl. Lots of shirtless guy talk about the girls. Cody says for someone that took a train to the face, Becky still looks good.
THE VOTE (Finally)
Clay asks the houseguest not to vote for him but to vote for Shelli to stay. Shelli cries and says she can’t wait to live in the real world with him. Shelli says she plays a loyal and fair game and is someone to roll with and not against. I HATE HER.
DAMN! Meg voted to evict CLAY. SO DID JACKIE! Fuck it’s unanimous. WTF happened? I hope they boo this douchebag. JMac goes last and says, “It’s been a weird day, I vote to evict Clay.”
Clay and Shelli hug alone by the eviction chairs and do a staged kiss. Clay gets a loud response from the crowd. Shelli is bawling I hope she screws up HOH.
Clay tells Julie that this is Shelli’s dream and he did not want to take that away from her. Julie asks if this is the real deal and they are really going to have a life outside the house. He pauses and then says he thinks so. Clearly, his thinker is broken. Julie asks if he loves her. He says that is a big word. Julie says well more than a half million dollars and he agrees. Julie asks if he has ever given up like this in a game before. He says he would not call it giving up. He says if she wins he wins. Julie asks why he was shocked to be on the block. Does he take any responsibility for sending Jason home? He does. Sort of.
JMac. says being an adorable couple sent him out the door. Austin says they have been close since week one and voting him out was the hardest thing he has had to do. Meg says she will miss watching him do his hair for five hours a day. Shelli says she doesn’t know how to live in the house without him and she is looking forward to their first date. Barf.
Julie asks about the drunken Meg incident. Clay says that is just Meg. He says she has had her fair share of showmances with “pretty much everyone in the house.” The audience rumbles and gasps. He says, “Not me!” as if that were their issue. No, Clay, it’s you. We all think you are a douchebag.
Well, it’s not a double eviction. Julie confirms everyone is on jury. She also says that someone could come back from jury. Holy shit. Don’t let them put Clay on the jury. It’s the skating endurance comp and James can’t play. I hope Jackie wins. Fuck I have some sort of Emergency Broadcast Crap interrupting the game. It is a skate back and forth and fill up the fishbowl thing with a twist. There are three balls and they can take a prize of $5K and still keep playing, take a Never Not prize and never be on slop and still keep playing, or take HOH and stop the game.
I hope Shelli falls on her fucking face repeatedly.
