When Justin gets to Julie, she notes that Rob was the first to leave the cage in the HOH competition and then Jee made a deal for his own safety. Does he feel betrayed? No. They guaranteed Jee his safety ten minutes into it and he stayed six hours. Rob had a migraine and knew he wasn’t going to beat Erika anyway.
Julie notes that Justin entered house a fierce competitor, but this past week he didn’t campaign to stick around – why not? He notes that the situation was awkward against Robert. His loyalty goes to the end of game, so there was no way he would campaign. Julie wonders if he came into the house to make friends or to win? A little of both. He came in not knowing who would be here and formed his strategy around what he had after he saw everybody.
How does he feel about being beaten by his ex? It doesn’t bother him at all. Alison is also a fierce competitor; she’s very intelligent and can be very convincing. The way she plays can get her a long way. So how does he like her chances? He doesn’t know – the way she is playing will get her far, but he doesn’t think it will win game. (I tend to agree – unless she pairs up against Jun in the finals, as I noted in my article on How Alison Can Win, which I wrote before I ever knew Alison and Jun had done exactly what I recommended!)
Does he see his relationship with Dana picking up where it left off? Sure. Whether it goes anywhere, he doesn’t know. They can almost start over again now that they’re out of the official house.
Next, we see the usual taped messages. Jack says Justin is the kind of person that the FBI recruits – intelligent, focused, etc. When the game is over, Jack says he wants to talk to him about entering federal law enforcement. Jee says he will always have his back inside and outside the house (um, like he did in the cage?); they will be lifelong friends. Alison says she is proud to consider him her ex. I’m not sure that’s a compliment. She says he deserves better than to be cooped up with her for another month. Well, that’s definitely true! Rob says he will always be there for Justin, a friend for life.
Time for Justin to leave and a new HOH to be crowned. Previously, the HouseGuests had a chance to practice the game (amusingly, Julie says they’ve had time in the last couple hours, but then they later show a clip of Robert saying something about the competition “tomorrow”). Jack says he needs to protect Erika ‘cus she can’t compete. Alison will make people think she’s trying, but she’s not really – all of them think she’s on their side, so if she wins HOH, she has to go against one side or the other. If she’s not HOH, she can side with the winner. (I love the fact that she really thinks she has them all fooled, as if they don’t know she jumps to whichever side is in control.) Jee says it’s do or die. Rob says they have to win.
For the competition, each is given a single bocce-type ball. They have to roll the ball down a course with bumps and swerves and the like, with a hole near the end. The one closest to the hole without going in wins. If the ball goes in the hole or off the course, they are out. If there is a tie, both players roll again.
Alison is first. She rolls the ball pretty close to the hole and she doesn’t look too happy about that, though she hides the face she makes from the other HouseGuests. Jee is next, and lucky for Alison, he gets closer. So Alison is out. Robert’s shot is not as good as Jee’s. Jun is next – nope, a couple inches further than Jee’s ball. Jack has to get this. Can he come through? NO! TERRIBLE shot! He chokes again on a challenge. Jee is the new HOH. Robert is ecstatic! So much for the Jack & Erika alliance, which is doomed as soon as Jee makes his nominations. Bye, Jack.
After we leave the HouseGuests, Julie says they have gotten pretty comfortable with the game, so we’ll tell them we’re about to stir things up. Oooh. But of course, we won’t actually find out what the newest twist is now. Instead, we have to wait until Saturday (instead of Friday), when we’ll find out about the twist that will put each HouseGuest’s character to the test. Huh? Then, Tuesday we’ll see how it all plays out. I wonder if it’s another test like last year, where they bribed one HouseGuest to turn on the others.
So now that Julie has told us that there will be a twist, it’s time to tell the HouseGuests. First she notes that Jee is the first person this season to get HOH twice. How important was it for him to get it? He says it was life or death for his team. He focused and asked his dad for help. Does he know who he wants to nominate? He says that’s not his style. He has a lot of talking to do, and it will be revealed later, at the official ceremony.
With that chit-chat over, Julie tells them that they always told the HouseGuests not to get too comfortable and to expect the unexpected. Well, the unexpected begins tomorrow! That’s all she says. As her image fades from their TV set, Alison and Jee are yelling, “WAIT! Wait! What was that?!” A twist. Alison is fanning herself like some Southern lady in an old movie. Jee says he’s not going to worry about it – when it comes, it comes. Robert thinks maybe it’s just that they are closing a room off. But Jack says that really wouldn’t be a big twist.
And so we leave them as they mull over what might be happening to them…
