We haven't really seen it yet on TV, but the live cameras are revealing a new pact between Will and two rather unlikely potential allies. Will this mean the resurrection of Chill Town?
By all appearances, Chill Town was dying, dead, and halfway to the grave. Leave it to the ever-resourceful money-grubbing players to find a way to resurrect it. While the Big Brother 2 TV show is still running a few days (if not a week) behind events that are happening in the house, viewers of the live feeds know the real story.
In a shocking about face (and somewhat drunken slurry), both Nicole and Hardy have teamed up with the oh-so-horrible and infamous puppeteer, the evil Dr. Will. What? you ask. How could this happen? Nicole promised Sherry, in their goodbye hug, that she would nail Will to the wall. Hardy, proclaiming incensed outrage, vowed to get him out of the house. My, how the cookie crumbles, viewers! Will's power appears to be unchecked and his talents at Bundyesque manipulations seem to know no bounds.
It was early morning. The houseguests had fallen into an inebriated sleep -- except for Will, Nicole, and Hardy. After Hardy's six beers, truth comes stalking. In Vino Veritas as they say. From his mouth to Will: "You have some extraordinarily redeeming qualities." Hardy admits he likes both Mike and Will. Come again? You heard it right. Somehow the close proximity in the house makes haters eventually become friends (after bouncing off the walls from here to Friday), and friends become enemies. Is reality so fickle?
Nicole admitted she was just like Will. "We are one and the same person," she claims. We knew she was devious but she's been hiding it pretty well. We should have looked closer at those tattoos.
Are these poor lambs being led to the slaughter, or has Will undergone some tremendously transformative redemption? He apologized to Nicole for the pain he had caused her. "Perhaps if you win the game, that'll make it up to you," he says. "Maybe it will," she said. She seems to be holding back a strangely euphoric exuberance.
Now Hardy especially seems to be embarrassed by the game and the idea of winning half a million -- at least on the surface. He believes that someone deserving should win -- like Krista. Krista does drugs and has a small child, was arrested for beating up her boyfriend and egged on a drunken, snaggletoothed New Jersian when he held a knife to her throat. Come again? She deserves it? OK, whatever.
Is wanting to win so bad, Hardy, even if you don't deserve it? Of course Hardy is probably the only one who deserves to win on virtue at this point, though chat rooms across America were abuzz with news of his devious Chilltonian pact. Why won't Hardy just admit he's playing the game? I guess for the same reason that Bunky cries every time he nominates someone. Because... well I don't know why.
Now notice that Will, while vigorously agreeing to participate in this pact after Mike "the star" is voted out on Thursday, never said the same kind of things that Nicole and Hardy were saying. He never said he liked either Hardy or Nicole, or that they were alike. He sat back and was playing a very cool game. The suspense and naughtiness of it all must have been thrilling! He did admit that he was scared by the conversation, as he shivered and farted in the cold L.A. night.
Attitudes in the house (at least from Nicole and Hardy) appear now to justify and accept Will's behavior. After all, Will admits being an evil, devious liar -- laugh out loud! He's outrageously manipulating us, ha ha ha! He's so honest about being a dishonest liar that he must be trustworthy! Is there a collective schizophrenia going on here?
But despite this pact, some grains of doubt persist. "If I find out you are lying to me about this agreement or anything, seriously, I'll kill you in your sleep," Nicole said. "She's just kidding," added Hardy. Perhaps Nicole IS more like Will than we realized.
It's unclear whether Nicole and Hardy have joined Chill Town, or if this represents a new and as yet unnamed alliance. In any case, the new alliance looks like a juggernaut, but don't be so sure that the purpose of the new alliance supported by Hardy (to make Krista the winner) is shared by all. Wouldn't it make a great show if Will wins Head of Household and then nominates both Hardy AND Nicole? Well, he did, after all, promise an avenging vengeance for psycho-bitch Shannon's being thrown out on her keester. An excellent way to prove his love for her. Stay tuned.
