But back to the veto competition!
Jee is in the middle of one of his marathon teeth-brushing sessions when Erika walks in and says that according to their deal in the cage, he can’t use the veto if he wins. Jee of course is clueless but with the precision of a Paradise Hotel flashback, we do indeed see the words being said and agreed to while they were trapped in the cages. Jee takes this new development to Robert after he tells Erika that he’s still cool with the deal, but Robert says he can still use it anyway regardless of what he said. Balking, Jee sees this as betrayal of his honor and dignity (or something like that) and doesn’t want to do it. Robert says that they were lied to in the beginning by the “originals” (ugh - another Paradise Hotel phrase… are you sure they don’t this show on live feed there as well?).
The veto competition is to focus five cameras on the appropriate HouseGuest picture in the order in which they won the veto competition. The fastest time wins. Quite simple, right? Well, to make it fair for everyone, only one person will be allowed to do the competition at a time. Justin makes it in just over three minutes while Erika takes over four to complete the course. Jack just can’t seem to get it together and clocks in at over eighteen minutes. Alison deliberately stalls and comes in under four minutes, while Jee and Robert are still nowhere near Justin’s time. It all comes down to Jun, who stuns everyone with a performance of under three minutes’ time. Jun – thrilled. Alison – livid (or so it seems).
Filler time… ugh. And it’s boring filler too. Jun and Jee met at church while Alison and Justin had sex for the first time when Justin offered her the chance to shower with him at the frat house. Yeah. Gotta love those good girls. And she wonders why Julie brings up her bedhopping.
But the best part, which is perhaps the most touching and also makes Robert seem more human, is when Erika comes over and apologizes to Robert for the things she did after they split up. Robert cheated on Erika and apparently she called his office to get him in trouble, but it was more of a revenge tactic than anything else. Robert says that he really needed to hear that and they both agree to put things aside in order to get along better in the house. There’s some resolution there. Some closure. It’s nice to see.
Later that night, it’s hot lesbian action in the hot tub. Not really. Just Jun and Alison, who apparently have realized that once one of the Stooges is gone, that will leave two Stooges as a pair, Jack and Erika as a pair, and they will be left in the dark. They have to team up in order to ensure their survival. After all, how many more floats do they have left in them at this point? They also wonder if Jack is throwing competitions just to keep out of the spotlight. Hmmm… Sounds like Will from Big Brother 2’s strategy is coming back into focus.
Finally we get the veto ceremony, and Jee is concerned that his ex will use the veto and he will be put up in place of the removed HouseGuest. Robert just says that this is a game and whatever she decides is based on how she chooses to play the game. Justin says that Jun is sneaky and floats from one group to the next and she’s only looking out for herself. Well, that’s one way to get taken off the chopping block, Justin. Regardless, Jun decides not to use the veto.
Was it a smart move? Well, she still has that secret alliance with Jee, so she would have run the risk of him being put up had she used it.
But we shall see who gets evicted tomorrow… will it be Justin? Will it be Robert? Will it be Julie Chen and her DRAMATIC PIVOTS?
We shall see!
