Dana and Justin meanwhile are curled up on the couch talking about her decision to nominate Jack and Alison. Justin says she made the right decision and I think he did too considering what she was going up against. If we remember last week, Jee was going to place her on the block had the power of veto been used to remove Michelle. Robert then enters the picture and says that he doesn’t care who wins the power of veto this week because it’s just a week of clear sailing for him. This is what I don’t get about Robert. Doesn’t he realize that Alison or Jack may have allies in the house that would stop at nothing to make sure that they are taken off of the block? I mean this really and truly isn’t a slam dunk and for him to think so is making him look very naïve. But I guess in his defense, he has to think that he’s safe even if it is used since Dana doesn’t seem to be targeting the exes for dismissal.
Now we get this little tidbit that I didn’t pick up on before and I think it just made me love Dana even more than I already do. Dana thought out the nomination process so well that even the keys were strategically placed to that each person who pulled out a key had to tell the person they disliked the most in the house that they were safe. That is just so freakin’ awesome and the fact that no one has even thought about doing that until that moment just makes me a really happy camper. Jun, of course, says she knew something like that would happen so it didn’t really surprise her so I scream, “Shut up, Jun!” at the TV screen because she’s really starting to get annoying with her self righteous, smarter than thou routine.
Now to kill some time this episode it’s time for a new episode of This Old Big Brother House starring our favorite HouseGuest carpenter – Jee! Apparently, this HouseGuest is a big Mr. Fix It (although I wonder if he could fix Jun’s mouth so she doesn’t speak?) and Alison, being the whiner that she is, has to have something to say about it, but let’s face it, she’s annoying enough as it is on the show, why would I inflict you with her actual comment here? But to prove that she’s the true psycho bitch of the house, Alison gets Dave to join her in a prank on Jee who just got done fixing the lounge chairs to make sure that they stayed in their right position. They sprang the release causing the chairs to collapse back so Jee would think that his work didn’t pay off. Of course it’s childish but Alison gets a kick out of it because she is a child (or at least has the mentality of one) and Jee goes back to repairing something that doesn’t really need fixing. Robert (who was also in on it) later tells him about how they did it and Jee rightfully is upset about it and doesn’t like being thought of as a doofus.
Over to the kitchen where Dana and Nate are now talking. Nate wants to make sure that Dana really wants Alison out of the house and I’m sitting there thinking, “No, Nate, why would she want THAT?” Dana says that Alison’s name kept coming up over and over and it was the right thing to do given the position she was in. It was time for a “move.” What move? Did the power move? Did my cheese move? What is this move? Of course, since this hour is now the Alison Show, we have to hear Dana talk about Alison in the Diary Room where she vows that no matter what Alison says behind her back, to her face, or standing on her head, she’s not going to let her off the hook for a second. She has the balls to do what no one else would do and made a pivotal decision to remove some key players from the game.
So now that people have talked about Alison in the Diary Room, what about Dana? Nominee Jack thinks that Dana effectively has no friends in the house after this round of nominations, which of course leads me to ask if she ever really did since no one really seems to like her but you have to admit she’s still playing a heck of a game otherwise. Now, David I have to disagree with when he says that Dana really doesn’t make strategic plays when it comes to dealing with things in the house. I think she made a perfectly wonderful “move” with her “shift of power” when she nominated two of the people that were promoting her eviction in the house. At the same time, she’s sided with a larger majority of people and knows that even if the power of veto is used, there are other people from the minority to put in their place. It’s a brilliant move and no one is giving her any credit.
But since this is the Alison Hour, we have to see Alison have it out with Justin about why he made Dana put her up for nomination. Actually I think she used the phrase about having Dana do his dirty work. Let’s face it... when you’re as hot as Justin, you can get people to do your dirty work easily. Justin says that Dana made her own decision for her own reasons and I have to agree with him on this one. She knew who was planning to get her out so she did what she had to do. Alison makes the claim that Dana only hates her because of Justin while Justin nails it on the head and says that doesn’t like her because of what Alison did in the house. Alison disagrees with the notion that she could do anything wrong and Justin comes right out and calls her fake, which Alison fakely says she is not. Justin says that he has to trust Dana because things in the house have changed and Alison puts her head under her covers and we all hope that Penn and Teller come in from their episode of Who Wants to Marry My Dad and will pull off the covers, revealing that Alison is gone. But that won’t happen, sadly.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 5 Next-->
