Big Brother 4, August 19: Look, Robert is Human!Page 2

The next day comes and Robert is by the pool talking with Alison about Jun and his desire to see her get the shaft in the upcoming round – if not this round! Alison says that if one of them gets veto, she will team up with them and get Erika to put Jun up in the place of the removed HouseGuest. Alison thinks this is a great idea since she thinks Jun is being sneaky about everything and her status as a “floater” is going to come to an end sooner than she thinks. Frankly, there is no chance in hell of this happening since Erika is dedicated to getting rid of one member of the Stooges regardless of whether someone is removed from the chopping block.
Erika actually takes the proposal to Jack and he finds the entire situation laughable because they are doing something that Alison and Dana didn’t do, which was to put up Justin. Of course Dana would never put her playmate (and I mean Justin, not the cooler) up for eviction, but the fact that Alison didn’t either… well that’s a bit curious too. Didn’t she want to get rid of all of the exes first as well? Of course, this is the point where Alison rears her whiny head again and enters yet another conversation she has no business being in but she does get to hear Jack tell her that Jun is pretty much persona non grata and about as trustworthy as Enron was with its account balances.
The main reason is that they have figured out (well maybe not fully figured out) that Jun and Jee are tighter than they originally realized. If they tell Jun anything about their plans, they know she will “float” her way over to Jee and spill the beans to them. Alison, for once, seems to have nothing to say, which from her is something along the lines of a miracle that the Catholic Church should be investigating. Meanwhile Jun and Jee are in the kitchen making sure that they have each others’ backs because they know that the targets are soon going to find their way onto them. Of course, Jun is a “floater” and she’s going to keep going between the two factions, finding the safe harbor she needs for a few scant moments before she has to move on.
Now Alison has already said that she doesn’t trust Jun… well, guess what, folks? Jun doesn’t trust Alison either. Oddly enough, Jack and Erika agree with her and warn her to be careful of what she says to Alison. So to recap… Jack and Erika want Alison to watch what she says to Jun and Jun to watch what she says to Alison. Do I have this right? Someone please tell me if I don’t, because it’s really starting to make my head hurt. Ultimately, from what I think I’m getting here, the plan is for Jun to sorta be the scapegoat of the whole thing. Whomever Jack and Erika want to go, Jun has to be the executioner.
All of this is in preparation for the veto competition. Robert and Jee both say they are going for the veto win and if so, Robert plans to use it to save Justin. Justin, however, says that it would be stupid for him to do that. Jee tells us that he is there to support his fellow Stooges but in reality, he doesn’t want to win - so will he pull a Roddy and deliberately lose? Meanwhile, an unlikely alliance of Jun and Alison seems to be forming as they both seem to take their floater status as a badge of honor. Jun apparently thinks she’s taking the high road in being a floater and not tramping around like Alison.
So is it time for the veto competition? No. We get America’s Choice. Who gets the letter from home? Everyone wants it but Alison, who thinks that it will only be bad news from her boyfriend – maybe dumping her? Oh please! That would be great! Robert really wants to hear from his little girl but says that if he doesn’t win, he would want Jack, the other father, to take home the prize. Now, here’s what I don’t get - Jun is in the Head of Household room crying about getting a letter from her ex-boyfriend Bob because he would know what to say to make her happy. This so comes out of left field that I have to mention it because they bring up another ex, one that we haven’t seen or heard from, and Jun is getting teary over him while her other ex is in the house.
Fast forward for a sec - Robert does ultimately win the letter and turns into a blubbering mess on national TV as he reads it aloud. Elena gets her own onscreen appearance and we learn that she got a new puppy, she’s about to start school again, and that she has seen a lot of white butterflies since he’s been in the house. Now, if you’re wondering what that means, Robert told her that every time she saw a white butterfly it was a sign that he was thinking of her. Included with the letter are four white butterflies that spell out, “I miss you, Dad.” It totally humanizes Robert and for one moment makes him not seem like a used car salesman.<--Previous 1 2 3 Next-->
