So we come to Tuesday night, with Big Brother up against the Joe Schmo finale, the Outback Jack finale, and the first part of the Last Comic Standing finale – not to mention whatever is on those other channels not showing reality TV. I’m thinking this doesn’t bode well for a show that isn’t anywhere near the finale and can be watched on the live feeds. But it does bode well for me because that means all of you who didn’t see it will have to rely on this recap. So I can make up whatever I want and none of you will be able to correct me!
OK, I would never do that. As far as you know.
On Saturday, a plan was enacted to make Jase think he’s safe. Instead of nominating him for eviction, as he was certain would happen, Nakomis put up Diane and Marvin – even going so far as to having “reasons” for putting both of them up. Jase was ecstatic. He thought he’d won the lottery! He didn’t realize it was all an act and that the plan was for whomever wins Veto to remove one of them so Jase can be put up without any recourse.
So one of the questions for tonight is: Does Jase get a clue? The other main question is: Does the plan work or does somebody turn on Nakomis & Company? We will soon see.
As we begin this episode, Jase is still celebrating and bragging to us that he received his key first. He says that he thinks he hit more buttons with Nakomis than Diane has. Oh clueless one… He is joined in his cluelessness by Michael.
Nakomis tells us it was all an act. Diane had to stop herself from smiling. The twins did a good job of looking upset. Even Drew was in on the act, playing the role of upset boyfriend. It’s like Joe Schmo 2 in here – everybody is putting on an act for two people. The question is whether either Jase or Michael will be Ingrid – who figured it out early on – or Tim, who is still completely clueless right up until the finale. Drew tells us that he feels bad that he didn’t tell Jase, but at this point it’s time to look out for himself. Good job, Drew!
Diane just wants to laugh because Jase is strutting around the house. You know, when he gets out, he is going to look back at this and just feel like a complete idiot – as well he should.
In case we missed it, Karen describes the plan again. I have to say, they are all so certain that this will work, that I almost don’t want it to! I’d love to see their faces if somebody turns on them. Right now, it’s not looking likely, but there are still 55 minutes left.
Jase again brags that he convinced Nakomis that he had changed, he wasn’t previously being himself, etc. He hangs out in the HOH room with her and tells her how cool she is. She says that sometimes you just have to do things that other people don’t want you to do.
Michael, clueless as ever, says he doesn’t know who to trust, but hopes he can trust Nakomis because she’s his half-sister. He is obviously worried about Drew, because he mentions to Jase that he’s all over Diane – they don’t think he’ll vote her out. Jase says it isn’t up to him who goes, he’s just a soldier now. But Evil Jase will return. You think so, eh?
Moving away from Jase, it’s time to talk about the twins for a little while. Everybody in the house is still trying to get used to the idea, and they’re still talking about the little things one or the other would do. For example, one of them kept brushing a strand of hair in front of her face – the reason is that one of them has a mole there and the other has a small scar.
But now, the houseguests are getting to know them individually. First, they have to figure out which twin they talked to about what subjects, who played what game, etc. With the secret out, Jase, Nakomis, and Michael discuss how different they really are when you see them together. Surprisingly, it’s Nakomis – not Jase – who noticed that one’s butt is smaller than the other.
Drew and Diane – both twins themselves – talk and Diane is upset that she, of all people, was duped by a twin. Finally, somebody brings up the game aspect when Karen notes that Adria and Natalie are obviously tight, while everybody else is a “disposable acquaintance.” Will notes that both are strong players, and he feels they will become “vicious and cutthroat” when the time comes. Sounds to me like a couple people are beginning to have ideas about getting rid of a twin or two.1 2 3 Next-->
