Looks like I’m back again to do another recap. I tell ya, the things I do for this site! Hey - I wanted to mention this really quickly. If you miss my writing (and I’m sure you do) and you’re wondering what I’m going to do next, I’m actually going to be recapping MTV’s latest installment of Fraternity Life airing Wednesday nights at 10:30! OK, that really has nothing to do with Big Brother, but I wanted to add it in there. Anyway, let’s take a look at what happened previously on the show.
As you may remember, Alison won the Power of Veto. At the live Power of Veto meeting/eviction ceremony, Alison did the smart thing and vetoed herself. This put Erika on the block. Alison then voted out Erika, all the while with tears in her eyes. Part One of the final Head of Household competition began with all three remaining HouseGuests standing on miniature houses holding onto their keys. Snow started falling and they didn’t look happy. Who will win Part One? What about Part Two? Find out in this recap!
We begin with a flashback of Erika being evicted and Alison’s speech. Alison says in the Diary Room that it’s “better her than me,” and that the tears she shed when she evicted Erika were simply to gain her vote in the end. She goes on to say that it was a four-and-a-half on her acting skills. Jun says she was confident Erika was going, but still had some pessimistic thoughts that she may have been the one that was going to be evicted. Rob comments that he’s sad Erika left and that he felt close to her. He knew Alison knew that he had a secret alliance with Erika and now he has to work harder than ever to make the final two.
Flashback of Part One of the final Head of Household competition starting. The snow begins to fall. Alison asks Jun and Robert if they are going to be out there with her all night because she will not move. She then goes on to talk about how she is used to being in snowstorms and she won’t be budging off that house. More snow. Robert says that usually, less than 70 degrees is too much for a Cuban to handle. Oh, c’mon Robert! I have to say that he has no problem giving up early! Alison attempts to talk Robert into getting off his house. More talking, and Robert mentions how Julie called him out about when he referred to the women as “bitches, sluts, and whores” (I really just wanted to say that). He tells them that he told Julie that he loved all the girls there and he spoke out of anger. Jun is shocked and appalled that he would tell them this. It pisses her off and Alison is horrified as well. Because, you know, Alison never says anything bad about anyone. I can only remember about 50 times she called Erika the same things. Oh well!
More snow gives Robert some problems. Jun says the house is tough to stand on because it’s only about an inch or so wide. Robert is getting snow down his shirt. One hour and twenty-five minutes into the competition, Jun lets go accidentally when she tries to adjust her shawl. Right after she leaves the backyard, Robert goes into deal-making mode. He tells Alison that if he wins Part Two of the challenge he will take her to the finals. Alison says she’ll keep that in mind and is definitely thinking she will take him as well. Yeah, OK. Robert steps off and Alison wins the first part of the final Head of Household competition.
Out in the hot tub, Alison and Robert are talking smack on Jun and promising one another that they will take the other to the final two. Alison says that she wants to make sure that Robert will take her in case he wins Head of Household. Robert wants a promise from Alison that she will take him if she wins. Alison lies and says she will, of course. Sleep time, and Alison tells Jun that she is glad she is still there. Jun says they need to stay focused and that is followed by them making a pact to take each other to the end. Alison tells Jun she is positive she will take her to the finals if she wins.
There is a big present in the backyard! All of the HouseGuests are excited as they go to see what it could be. Robert goes to open it and it starts to move! He finally opens it all the way and a mime pops out. You heard me, a MIME!!! Mime has a note around his neck saying he’s the key to the next luxury competition. He starts doing typical “mime things” and none of the HouseGuests know what’s going on. Mime makes Robert be the bull in a bullfight, sits with Alison for a little, and makes Jun act like a chimpanzee. How appropriate. One hour of “Mime Time” and Alison says she wants to fight with him. He seems to be getting on their nerves and freaks out Alison when he goes to get in bed with her. Then he chases her though the house and stops to make lunch with Jun. Well, he doesn’t really make lunch so much as he does break things like eggs. On the floor. Then sprinkles salt and pepper on top of the mess. Jun is really ticked off. Two hours in and Mime is still throwing things. Mime asks Robert for a bite of his sandwich and Robert gets so pissed that he gives Mime the whole thing. Robert than says this is the worst day in the house – EVER.
Alison is lying on the couch and Mime joins her. She is so pissed but I love this. Alison states that she would rather have Dana in the house. OK, Alison, deep breaths - let’s not say something we don’t mean. Mime whips out a key. The HouseGuests follow him to the Desert Room and he lets them in. It’s the prize of the luxury competition: A private screening of the movie Runaway Jury for two of them before it even hits theaters. They watch the trailer of the flick and all agree they want to see it. The winner will choose who will watch with them, not to mention they find out that the winners will also get to walk down the red carpet at the movie’s premiere in October! Mime gives them instructions and heads out. They read the instructions and see that for this competition, they have to take color-coded Velcro balls and hurl them at Mime. First one to stick three balls to Mime will win the competition. They all rush outside - very happy, I might add, that they get to throw things at Mime. They start throwing and Alison gets the first one to stick. Robert gets the first and second, and before long, the third and wins! He states how bad he wanted to win that competition and tells Mime he is taking Alison. He thinks she will be more fun than Jun. Jun looks pretty disappointed. Alison and Robert head to the Desert Room and begin pigging out on the snacks that are there for them. Alison says she doesn’t feel bad for Jun, calling her a witch and saying she deserves some time on her own. Wow - I’d love to be Alison’s friend.
