This entire episode is probably going to be the Battle Back Competition. By the time the feeds return tonight though, we should have an HOH. I’m excited!
Julie starts off with a couple of lies. She says the houseguests don’t know someone is coming back. They do. They are not exactly sure when. Paul, up until recently thought it would be after jury. Then she says there is a possibility that no one will return to the house tonight. Also not true. They did not set up this elaborate set for no reason. Plus, they need someone to come back ASAP because Meghan ruined the numbers.
As they announce the players, Cody comes out in straight up serial killer mode. Wow, this is complicated. the four evictees compete in the first challenge. The top two advance to the next round. Those two face off in the second round. The winner of that round faces off against “the house challenger.” The house will select one person to compete. If the house challenger wins, they keep the evictee out of the house.
Challenge One: Maneuver a ball on a platform through a maze using ropes and pulleys. First two to get your ball to the end advance. Cody struggles to finesse the ball. This is Cameron’s game to win.
Winners: Cody wins! He probably had a practice board for the last week or two. Cameron WINS! YES!
Challenge Two: Bill Board Bashers Use a catapult to knock ten boards out of your billboard. Come on, this one was literally made for Cody. It takes a LOT to knock down the boards. Most of the balls just bounce off. Cameron has a huge lead. But Cody realizes the key is to launch the balls softer In a huge come from behind win, Cody wins.
Winner: Cody. Cody actually walks over to shake Cameron’s hand. I’m shocked.
Julie tells the houseguests that someone is possibly coming back. Jessica is thrilled. Mark is furious. He knows it will be Cody and Cody threw him and Dom under the bus when he left the house. Jessica talks privately with Mark saying he will be fine because he has been nice to her.
No one really wants anyone coming back in except for Jessica. Julie calls everyone back to the couch and tells them to go one by one into the diary room to vote on who they want to be the house challenger. If you want the person back, pick a weak player, if you don’t pick a strong player. They still don’t know who they will be facing in the challenge, but it’s pretty obvious it’s going to be Cody.
They have not said what happens if the challenger loses the battle other than the evicted houseguest returns. But is there a consequence for losing? Oh! You cannot vote for yourself. So every single person voted for Paul. Paul voted for Alex. So there will be no consequence for Paul. Because, Paul. Even Jessica voted for Paul. Production I am sure told Paul to lose.
Challenge Three: Cody got to choose between the two previous challenges. He chose the maze race. However, the Maze is different.
Cody wins! I am so shocked said no one ever.
We should know around midnight who won HOH. My money is on Cody.
How do you feel about Cody coming back into the house?
