Lots of falling and stumbling and champagne-spilling ensues. Jee cracks me up the most when he walks into a wall before even getting to the champagne. Poor Jack actually suffers a small cut when he falls on his face, but he takes it like a man and laughs it off. It is nice to see the people actually concerned over someone getting injured during the competition and not about being total jerks to each other. Erika and Alison clock in the fastest times. Erika used a head spin technique used by dancers to spot a point on a wall when they spin and whip their head around to prevent them from getting dizzy. But Alison whines that she’s an ice skater so of course she can spin, using a similar technique, and gets in with eleven seconds. Alison hems and haws in a very fake manner before she chooses Nate for her dinner date.
Pretty much it’s a nice dinner for the two blondes (although I think Alison is of the bottle variety) and they both look rather nice. But, of course, they get drunk because that is a Big Brother tradition that must be upheld. But when we come back from commercial Alison is in the hot tub – WITH JUSTIN! Justin tells her that since she’s drunk she had better not try to seduce him. And what if she did, Justin. What if she did? Showing that he really is the brains in the former couple, Justin gets Alison to reveal that she’s not leaving this week because Nate will be using the power of veto to rescue her from eviction and even says that there is no one in the house smarter than her. Oh really. If that was the case you would have won Power of Veto this week!
Nate is now pissed that Alison revealed his plans and tells her off in no uncertain terms. He thought she was a better class of person than to get drunk and spill her guts about what was going to happen. It was supposed to be a secret, remember? Now they can plan a counter attack. “You’ve ruined all my evil goodness, Alison!”, he screams. Okay so he didn’t say that but it was implied. Justin of course tells everyone about he plan to remove Alison and the plotting is afoot.
In the Diary Room, Nate says he’s disappointed in Alison shooting off her mouth and lost a lot of respect for her. Wait... you have respect for her? You must be the only one. Jack is next the Diary Room and he says that his group of Dave, Erika, and himself believe that if the veto is used then Dave will be the one put up in Alison’s place and the group will have to decide who is more valuable to the whole.
We finally get to the ceremony and we have to wonder if Nate is still going to go through with pulling Alison off the block after she revealed everything. Jack says he just wants to stay and play the game since he likes the competition, while Alison says that people are saying hurtful things behind her back (as if she’s a saint herself) and she deserves another chance to play the game. Basically we all knew it was going to happen despite what little doubt was planted in our minds with Alison’s drunken rant, because Nate does take Alison off of the block.
Dana lets it fly with Nathan says that his decision was pretty much a stupid move on his part and if he was playing Superman then he has another thing coming. She puts David up in his place and says that David can thank Nate for his nomination this week. Back in the Diary Room Dana says that Nate pissed her off and I actually had to go back and rewatch the entire episode to see if she said those words at any other time and she didn’t. We went nearly an hour without hearing her say she was pissed off. I think that’s a record. She only wishes she had put Nate up with Alison. In response to Dana’s words about going against an alliance, Nathan himself tries to point out that Dana did it first, but is pretty much ignored in the general hoopla of the meeting breaking up.
Meanwhile the former original alliance says that Nate broke up the group even more with his decision. Erika and Jack both say it was a big mistake with both of them breaking ranks to say that they have to move to get Nate out of the house and soon. Nate, meanwhile, can feel the arrows about to pierce his body because the target on him, he says, has gone from his front and back to his full body.
He doesn’t know the half of it...
