Again - people, people, people. I bring up the fact that she could win the veto and take herself off. And what if Dana wins it and takes her off the block? You always said on the live feeds if anyone gets taken off the block with the veto that Dana would go in their place. Well what if she wins the veto? Then what? Man, I am so thinking ahead of myself, and the fact that these people aren't is really a sad thing. Then again, it's pretty typical of me to find the loopholes that they don't air.
Next, we get a small thing on the tortoises. Erika seems to have bonded with them the most. The smell in the room that houses them is pretty bad. Alison says that the stench may belong to her ex, Justin, who lives in there. Why they brought this up, I have no clue. It is useless filler.
Michelle is up next, and we are reminded that she is David's ex. David chooses to belittle her in front of everyone in the kitchen. David proves that he is a child by how he is acting towards her. He delights in pushing all of her buttons and he knows the right one to push to bring out the reaction that he wants - the one where she's pissed to high heaven and he knows that all he has to do is push just a bit farther to make her look bad.
She tries to make sure he knows how she feels and he says he will stop but apparently he hasn't and won't. Michelle says that his joking towards her is tinged with a bit more venom than anyone else. She's more concerned that he's making fun of her in some way and he doesn't seem to take it seriously. David, of course, says that he won't make fun of her anymore and Michelle says that one statement is another example of him being childish. Well, again, I'm on the woman's side, because David has done nothing but look and act like a freakin' three year old since he got into the house and has the IQ of toast. I am baffled that Erika and Michelle even went out with these men for an extended period of time, but such is life.
In the HoH room, Jee advises Michelle that she is possibly going to be put up against Erika, but that she would be staying since everyone wants Erika out. Michelle says she's being put up because she's too nice, but I think she remembers last year when all of the decoys wound up getting the boot out the door. She wants one of the guys to go up against Erika; she doesn't really understand why her. David comes up to her and tries to ease her fears because he wants Dana to go up.
David says he was ready to threaten Jee to put up Dana instead of Michelle. Now, I didn't catch much of what Jee and David were talking about, because 1) they were whispering, 2) their microphones sucked, and 3) I think if they were understandable, President Bush might make them part of his Axis of Evil. From what I got out of it, David wanted Jee to put up Dana against Erika because it was the smart move. Then there was something about Jack and Rob and being strong players and someone tell me how CBS could subtitle a third of the conversations on this show but not that one? I mean, I am not a freakin' lip reader!
With nomination time coming up, everyone appears to be on edge. Michelle is on the verge of tears as she tells Erika it's just a game and not her life. I think those two seem to know that it's them. Erika will probably take it well, but Michelle, if it's her… well, she's going to dissolve into a puddle of tears and probably dehydrate herself. With that, Jee puts in the keys into the Box of Doom and he's slowly wondering what to do, and we have to wonder ourselves if it will be the Erika/Michelle combo.
Jee calls them all into the room and with that, I am reminded of when Amy was HoH and she pretty much gave her speech, bawled all the way through it, pulled out the key, squeaked out the name, and threw the key on the table. Oh, those were the days. The days of calling Chiara by over thirty new names. Sigh.
Jee pulls out the first name and it's Alison. Alison takes her key and in turn reveals that Nathan is safe. The box is wheeled over to him and he pulls out Justin's key. Erika has this look that she knows it's her. Justin pulls out David's key and he pulls out Dana's key, which has to piss David off since he wanted her out. Dana reveals that Jack is the next safe guy. Personally, I want to see if Jun is squirming in her seat. The next key is Robert's, so it's down to Jun, Erika, and Michelle. Did he put up his ex? With a turn we learn that Jun is the last to get her key and she has this look on her face that says, "You ass. Why the hell did you do this to me? Are you still punishing me?" Personally, I say, bravo!
Jee says he picked Erika based upon how she relates to people in the house; she can make people feel uncomfortable. He says it's strategic and she says she doesn't take it personally. Michelle is chosen because he has to play the game and says she's a good fit to go up against Erika and it was, again a strategic move.
Erika says she has no idea what will happen but that everyone is whacked out of their minds. She says they think it's because she's too normal. Michelle says that the game has just begun for her. She thinks she was taken advantage of and this has robbed her of her innocence and the game is on. Interestingly enough, if you go to our main page, we already know who has the power of veto and well, folks… it could get pretty interesting.
