First of all, let me say I put my blood, sweat, and tears into this post so you better appreciate it. Blood because I cut my finger really bad while opening a can (that was part of my dinner) RIGHT before I starting watching the episode – it’s hard to type with layers of band-aid and tape around your pinky! Sweat because I was on edge waiting for how everything would turn out. And, tears because of the results. Well not so much, but I was disappointed.
As we know going into it, Romeo & Juliet are on the block (Jeff & Jordan) and Natalie & Kevin (HOH) are feeling pretty confident that it’s gonna be a Romeo Must Die scenario. Michele is doing her best to keep Jeff in the game.
Jeff needs two votes to stay in. He has Michele’s, so he then tries to go for Natalie. In his first attempt, he doesn’t have that much to convince her. Meanwhile, Kevin is watching Natalie talk to Jeff on the monitor from his HOH room, beginning to question what moves she’d made strategically and if he trusts her completely. Although not yet successful, Jeff has planted the seed with Natalie and given her some stuff to think about. She knows she has options.
As they know one of them is going home, Jeff & Jordan try to kiss and snuggle as much as possible. Lucky Jordan has her hands all over Jeff’s bare chest under the covers, but that’s as far as she goes. We know nothing more is going on…it’s Jordan of course, not Lydia!
Discussing what he can offer to Natalie, Jeff and Michele come up with a scenario that is too good for Natalie to refuse. There idea is to give her the HOH next week and keep her safe for another week. If she doesn’t go through with it, she can be guaranteed that Michele is not going to vote for her the next week. It’s a sweet deal for her. He is 100% guaranteeing it for her. Ad he puts it, “If she doens’t take that deal she’s an idiot.” Jeff then discusses the option to Natalie. She is seemingly quite interested in the offer, but no definite guarantees are given.
Intermission #1. Michele’s Husband. Back home, Michele’s husband is talking about his wife as he watches from back home. He touches upon the fact that she really does have a memory loss/memory issue and also discusses how hard it is to see her cry and not be able to help her. That being said, he knows she’s quite smart and has seen that every time she’s down, she pulls herself back up.

Intermission #2. Jury House: Lydia and Jesse welcome last week’s victim – Russell. Lydia and Jesse have been getting along really well in the house, and Lydia seems to have upped her flirtation factor, with Jesse accepting. With the latest victim on his way, they both don’t know who it will be. As Russell enters, they shout with shock, suprise, and excitement, but overall seem disappointed that yet another has been duped by Jeff. Russell tells them how he got backdoored. In their discussions, they inform Russell that Natalie is actual 24, not 18 as she had made everyone think. Russell didn’t know this and was totally shocked. They are pissed that she’s been lying the whole time so this will obviously affect their perception of her should she make it to the final two. Jesse and Russell say that they’d consider giving Jeff the vote if he gets to the end, as he was successful in getting them out. He was the only one that had the guts and strength to do it.
Back to the live eviction hour. Julie talks to Kevin in private in the HOH room and discusses any concerns he may have with trusting Natalie, his only remaining partner, to which he responds, “I know the word “Ly” (as in lie) is in Lydia’s name but…”
And on the flipside, in Jeff’s plea speech to keep him in the game, Jeff makes a strong speech against Kevin directed towards his only hope, Natalie and says that she can either take her luck with a backstabber (Kevin) or be guaranteed HOH next week by keeping him in, in a deal made with he and Michele. Jeff made the most compelling and convincing speech this season. I was on the edge of my seat. Here’s what he said:
“Sometimes you have to let destiny take it’s course, and from my circumstance right now, an 18 year old stands in the way of my destiny. I just want to point out a couple things here. There’s a couple things that are really important to you in this game Natalie: your word, your family, your boyfriend, and you have a chance to uphold all of those tonight. You gave me word – you are not HOH, but to keep me safe. You have the opportunity to have a free HOH room, which you see your family and your boyfriend. And, if you do vote me out, take your luck with someone who you know is a backstabber, who you know is not gonna take you to the finals because he doesn’t have the votes to beat you. He knows it. I know. You have to ultimately do what’s best for you. Good luck to everybody, if the votes don’t turn out my way.”
Pretty good, huh? Let’s see if it helped…
TIEBREAKER: Kevin has to do the deciding vote. Kevin says to Jeff, “Nice desperate try, you’re outta here.”
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! Jeff gave the best “keep me here” speech yet! So keep him here!!!
As Jeff exits the Big Brother House, and enters the studio, he receives the first standing ovation they’ve had this season from the crowd…deservedly so!
Ugh. Suck it up, Patrick. Jeff is gone and will now be the 4th member of the jury. It’s time for their HOH competition. The winner of this HOH competition guarantees themselves a spot in the final three. Please, please, please be Michele or Jordan (Kevin can’t compete since he’s outgoing HOH – not that I’d be routing for him anyway – I hope he throws his mic in the jacuzzi). I’m So over Natalie and Kevin. I want those bitches out. Kevin is now Ronnie reincarnated in the house. The snake.
The HOH competition is Fact or Fiction. It’s between Michele, Natalie, and Jordan. Julie reads a statement and if they think it is fact they take a step backwards. If they think fiction, they take a step forward. The player with the most points after 7 questions is the new HOH.
1. Jordan gets point (Wooohooo!)
2. Jordan, Michele, and Natalie all get points. (Meh)
3. Natalie and Jordan get point. (Jordan still in the lead!)
4. Everyone gets point. (Meh)
5. Michele gets point. (Yay – She’s still in!)
6. Michele gets point. (Woohoo!)
7. Natalie gets point. (Oh shit)
GULP. After the tie breaker in the eviction ceremony, I can’t take another tie breaker this episode.
The answer will be a number. Closest wins. Natalie wins. FML! Oh No! Another. Natalie esctatic is yelling, “Chima! This is for you, Chima!”
That was worst case scenario.
Everything was the worst it could have gone in this episode. I cut my finger, Jeff was sent home, and Natalie wins HOH. My only hope is that Kevin goes home next week. I guess my only hope is Michele for POV, considering she’s done pretty well with those recently. Go Brains!
Sunday is when Natalie Nuisance will put up her nominations. There will also be another Pandora’s Box for HOH Natalie to decide upon and that time, and it WILL affect the game if used. On Tuesday, it will be a live episode: Final Veto Competition, Final Live Veto Ceremony, and a Live eviction. Next Thursday, the first part of a three part HOH competition begins. September 15th is the 2 hour live finale. I hope Memoryless Michele or Jeffless Jordan wins.
