Anyway, moving along, Jack’s talking about the general youth of the house brings us to a clip show of how people ran around half-naked, complete with drooling commentary from Nathan, Dana saying it was practically a nudist colony, and Jack sharing that he spent the summer counting the polka dots on Erika’s teeny red bikini. Oh eek - they HAD to revisit Jun’s mesh top, didn’t they? Thank God that thing got burned. Justin shares that there were a couple “sexy moments” in the house and relives a “sweet and sour” moment for him (as opposed to a “hot mustard” moment?!?): Alison and Michelle wearing the lettuce bikinis. It was sweet seeing Michelle in next to nothing, but seeing Alison wearing next to nothing right next to her made him want to puke! Heh. Jack shares that they wanted to kill David for ripping Michelle’s bikini off and forcing her to cover up. Next, we see some unseen footage of the HouseGuests playing “Pass the Potato” at Jun’s suggestion; Dana chimes in that Jun was very creative and came up with all kinds of games. Basically, the object is to pass the potato from one person’s neck to the other without dropping it and with no hands, making for some rather intimate contact in the process. Odd pairings abound: David and Jun, Jack and Michelle, etc.
Jack rather abruptly switches the focus to the erstwhile “Dream Team,” noting that the exes were originally “three strong players.” (Well, plus Amanda and Michelle, but they pretty much turned out to be ciphers in the grand scheme of things.) He reminds us they fought very hard to stay in the house, which is our cue to see Jee winning the second Head of Household competition. Nathan and Justin both share with us that that was the polarizing moment that made everyone have to choose a side. Once again, Jee assures Michelle that if he puts her up as a pawn against Erika, she’ll be safe. Bwah! Jee shares that all the other HouseGuests assured him they were all behind him in wanting to vote out Erika! Jee apparently has quite the selective memory, because I distinctly remember recapping that practically the entire house converged on Jee to try to talk him into letting Dave use the veto so they could put up Dana in Erika’s place. If Jee didn’t deduce from that that they perhaps weren’t enthusiastic about evicting Erika, then he’s a complete moron. Wait - why am I making that an “if/then” statement? Nathan shares that he couldn’t wait to turn the tables on Jee; we see Jack assuring Jee that Erika needs to be evicted. Hee! Jee once again assures Michelle she’s safe; Michelle chirps, “Of course! The Head of Household says something and everyone follows!” Proving once again that evicting Michelle was like evicting Bambi. And evicted again she is, giving us a chance to revisit the classic “D’oh!” expressions on the Stooges’ faces. Jee tells us he felt incredibly guilty because he honestly thought Michelle was safe; Justin says that was the biggest surprise he experienced in the Big Brother house, and Dana shares that it was tough to hold the truth back from the Stooges because she already felt kind of allied with them. Jee tells us he felt shocked and humbled. But apparently not enough to avoid making similarly stupid decisions his second go-round as Head of Household.
Back at the dinner table, Jack and Erika lead the table in reminiscing about Dave. Jack says he was definitely the funniest guy in the house and Erika points out that he may have played the goofball, but he definitely wasn’t stupid as he was the best at chess. Cue Dave’s Greatest Hits montage - hanging upside down off the punching bag, etc. While I’m happy to see him, I really didn’t need the reminder that at one point there were likeable people in the game. Ah well - at least the bulk of this episode is spent with the jury, who actually seem to all be getting along. Heck, even Dana seems a lot more bearable now - probably because she no longer has a reason to run around like a wild-eyed paranoiac. (The apparent regular - ahem - “cardio” probably doesn’t hurt either.) Justin points out that there were a lot of wacky moments in the house, which cues the General Wacky Moment Clip Montage, showing us things like Justin accidentally beaming Jee with a ping pong paddle, Nathan attempting to shake his booty, and Jun demonstrating “how Korean girls dance.”
Jack shares that he remembers Jee getting drunk one night because the Stooges deliberately gave him too much to drink; Jee elaborates that it was the night they were celebrating Justin winning Head of Household and he was coming off a week of PB&J so he didn’t have much in his stomach. We see Jee get all blurry and double-visioned as he downs his drink. Heh. Good one, editors. In general, while I had the usual gripes about some things being predictable, hamfisted, or distorted from what actually happened on the feeds, I have to say that the editors overall did a good job of creating an entertaining silk purse out of a sow’s ear with fun little moments like that. Tipsy Jee staggers around, falls into the bathtub, slurs he’s not drunk, apparently attempts to do the bunny hop, and snaps at Justin, “Shut up, you little hobbit!” Heh. Tipsy Jee is definitely a lot more entertaining than Regular Jee; why couldn’t he have stuck around?
Erika reminisces (to us, not the other jury members, you’ll note) that the funniest moment for her in the house was making the movie that lampooned Dana, Nathan, Justin, and Jack, saying that Robert’s Nathan was one of the funniest things she’s ever seen! I have to admit that both that and seeing Jee waddle around as Dana in that robe and wig still crack me up. On a more somber note, Jack tells us that Jee’s memorial for his father was the most touching moment in the house as we revisit it in clips. Among other things, we see Alison once again be supportive and ask Jee if he needs anything, even though according to the live feed updates she made fun of the whole thing behind his back.<--Previous 1 2 3 4 Next-->
