Big Brother 4, July 9: Slimy ExesPage 2
View Printable version of this article
They split into teams working together. Several get in pool, get slimy, and then others have to scoop the slime off their bodies. This isn’t working very well at first, until some girls fill the bottoms of their bathing suits with the slime and the guys get it out. Alison thinks of Gerry from last year when his suit was filled with similar slime. Jee realizes that the guys have pockets in their suits, so they can fill ‘em. Jack (remember him?) says it was a lot of damn fun having women feeling you for goop. But the feeling isn’t mutual as Jun is trying to avoid touching Jack but definitely going for David.
After seven minutes, they barely have enough slime in the box to get into the yellow zone. But when Jun pulls pin, the weight is easily enough. The hot tub is theirs!
That night, they all gather in the tub. Jack (wow, he makes another appearance!) says everybody is in a good mood – 13 people having a good time together. Erika, however, says she is always thinking about the game. She didn’t just come to have fun; she’s here to take home the cash.
She isn’t the only one playing the game. Later, a few players realize that, hey, some people are forming alliances and strategies. Like, wow man. The original eight, now named the Elite 8, are all together as far as Scott can tell. The other five need to go. Alison tells Jun she plans to kiss Justin’s ass and then he has to go. She tells him that she’d rather he be there because at least she knows him. Liar! They agree to keep it a secret and he says he’ll keep his word. Privately, she says she needs him out because she cares about him and it’ll mess up her game. Well, at least she’s not whining about how upset her current boyfriend will be anymore. She seems to have completely forgotten about him.
Nathan, Scott, and Alison discuss Justin and Robert going, but they say they can’t put both up against each other. Um, why not? That’s not really made clear. Then Jun, Alison, and Nathan go into the bathroom together – and by “bathroom” I don’t just mean the room with the bath, but the little toilet area. As they are in there talking, Jee walks into the shower area and then quickly leaves. Meanwhile, Jun shows knowledge of BBs past by saying that history shows if you put up somebody who obviously has to go, they never go. Ah, the voice of reason, finally!
Jee goes back to talk to Robert and Justin, his fellow guy exes, and says he heard three people in the bathroom, but he walked away without listening because he didn’t want to get caught. Dummy! He could have just stayed right there and pretended to be doing something in the bathroom area, meanwhile overhearing their plans! Justin says the three of them should stick together.
A message comes on the mini-tv for the HouseGuests (what is the deal with the little screen this year?) saying the power is up for grabs. A bunch of them walk around like, “Duh, what’s that mean?” Scott says it’s HOH (Head of Household) time. Give that man a cee-gar! Privately, Justin says he would definitely go for HOH – why wouldn’t he? Indeed. Scott wants it, but if somebody else in the Elite 8 gets it, they’ll do the dirty work for him. Alison says one of original eight has to win it. Has to!
Julie Chen tells us about the HOH, for those people who didn’t watch last year. HOH gets laundry privileges, a specially stocked refrigerator, and a locking door to his/her own room. Also, HOH nominates two people for eviction. As before, the same person cannot be HOH two weeks in a row.
To begin the competition, each person has to choose a partner, meaning one will immediately be ineligible because s/he has no partner; but Julie assures them that person will still play an important role. Scott immediately says he’ll sacrifice himself. Jee pairs up with Erika and says it plays well with his plans (along with Robert and Justin) so Erika can’t get HOH. Huh? Jack and David partner up and Jun says it was obvious – um, what was? These people are making cryptic comments and I really wish they would explain themselves a bit more.
The two people have to decide on one to be a sitter and one to be a kneeler. Jeez, this sounds like The Mole. Then they go out to the backyard, where the kneelers strap in sitters to nice relaxing lawn chairs. Did I mention the buckets of fresh fish chum (guts) balanced above the sitters’ heads? The kneelers put one knee on a trigger button and the other foot on square a couple feet away. If they release the button, their partner gets chummed. The last team chum-free has a chance to win HOH.
After eight minutes, David – the Army Ranger – loses his balance and Jack gets chummed. He says he’s disappointed because he could have beaten them all. Er, then why didn’t you? Amanda thinks it might have been planned, but nothing David says indicates that – he’s just amused that fish guts got dumped on Jack.
A bit later, Michelle is in too much pain and finally falls, chumming Amanda. Amanda thinks Michelle could have stayed a little longer. But “a little longer” wouldn’t have cut it anyway as the next team doesn’t go out until after 24 minutes, when Dana says she can’t do it anymore and slips off, dumping on Jun. Then, after 30 minutes, Erika gets dumped by Jee. Well, I guess he made sure she wouldn’t get HOH – but neither will he.
The only two teams remaining are Nathan/Alison and Robert/Justin. Nathan offers a deal for Robert and Justin to give up and he or Alison won’t nominate them this week. They take the bait, er, chum.
So it’s Alison and Nathan in the finals. Now Scott gets to play his important role. It’s simple – he decides which one, Nathan or Alison, wins HOH. He picks Nathan for his strength and determination in kneeling and says he respects him for that. Alison says she’s happy it was Nathan instead of her because she has a couple alliances going on. Nathan says he will honor the deal and has a pretty good idea who he’ll nominate.
So who will it be? David says right now the plan is still to get rid of the exes, but things change and he doesn’t know what might happen. So who will be nominated?
