Big Brother 4, August 15 Live Feed Highlights: The Mis-Education of Jeeby Sting7 -- 08/16/2003
HouseGuests are awakened with the news that nominations are in two hours! As the fog lifts from their sleepy heads, they are being called for their morning Diary Room sessions. Jun is cooking as usual with Alison backing up on eggs. Alison gets called in, and over scoots Jee to whisper with Jun. She is doing most of the talking (but she has gotten sooo good at whispering so low, the mikes can't pick it up).
Later, Jee tells Erika privately that he doesn't want to commit to not using the Power of Veto (POV) if he wins it. Erika tells Alison and Jun that they must keep Jee from getting it. Later, Erika discusses Jee's wavering with Jun, Alison, and Jack. They are all pretty annoyed. Jack is strangely quiet. Erika says she thought it was clear when they offered the deal to Jee in the cage. Alison says it was clear! They even questioned him (they discussed it with him like he was four-year-old!). Alison says he asked Alison yesterday if the deal precludes him from using it. She says she told him she can't use it, and he can't use it either. (So that was the deal, you won't go up, you can't use POV if you win it.) Jack goes to find Jee. (Uh-oh!)
Jack takes the "misundertanding" angle. I'm sorry you misunderstood. Jee says he knows that the Alliance will try to keep Jee from getting it. Jack just says Jee is a good player, he's sorry he misunderstood. Jee whines that it makes him look so bad to the other Stooges that this deal is between them. Jack says Jee has cover, Jee says he thought he'd be going up.
Erika comes out, she's hot. She says she doesn't get how Jee misunderstood, Alison was there, it was clear to her, why isn't it clear to him? Jee says he feels threatened (Great, now he's Cornholio!). Jack says calm down (Beavis), and asks if he plans to use the POV if he wins it. Jee says he would. Jack asks if he would pull Justin. Jee said it hasn't been decided whether Justin or Robert would be saved. Jee says the deal was, if Justin or Robert gets saved, then Jee is going up. (Why is he bringing that up? Is he more or less checking to see if that is still the plan?) Jack says "absolutely, you were covered with us." I guess that's a yes. Jack goes back to "good cop," it was over six hours (in the cage), we were all tired and hungry. Jee asks to talk to Alison. Erika and Jack say they will go get her (after a quick meeting in the HOH). Then they tell Alison that Jee requests her presence. With an eyeroll and a flourish, Alison heads out back.
Robert is talking to Jee before Alison arrives. Robert reminds him that if Jee wins POV, Jee can't be put up. Jee says he honestly misunderstood, he thought the deal was that if he pulls a Stooge, Jee would be put up. (Did he forget the rules of the game??) Robert says he could lie – in fact, he highly recommends it! Say you won't use it and then use it! Jee says he keeps his word.
Out comes Alison, and she discusses her bond with them. Alison declares that Jack must go immediately, and she's not feeling so warmly for Jun either. Robert says Jun is a snake and she needs to go… before Jack. Jee says Jun is playing for herself, he knew that all along, but they needed her vote, so she was a Stooge associate. Alison says (try not to faint) that you really have to pick a side and stick to it! Alison proposes a housewide effort to get Jun out next. Then she switches gears and wants Jack out. She thinks he's dumb. Jee disagrees, Jack is very smart, and that is why he has to go. All this talk of eviction without his name mentioned has made Robert downright giddy. He starts talking about the end of the game. As for Jun, Alison and Jee say she has played herself.
Alison asks if he understoods his deal meant that he can't use the Veto. Jee says he thought that was just for Alison. Alison says she can see how he could think that. Then Jee switches gears and says Erika told him if he uses it, she would put him up. Robert says she can't do that. (And I'm sure Erika knows that!) Alison goes back to banding together to get rid of Jun. They could do it! But Erika and Jack are hell-bent on getting Justin out. Robert says whatever happens, just don't let it be a tie (Erika would have a BIG decision to make then!). Jee asks if Alison is okay. Alison says she's fine, she'll keep kissing Erika's butt until after the Veto ceremony.
Alison says to keep Jun in the dark about this, Jee says it would be stupid to tell her. Alison says she is going to share a secret... Jee was next to go after Justin! (Uh, no, it was Robert!) Jee is shocked.
Later, Alison, Jee, and Jun talk. Jun mentions that Robert knew (everybody knew) Justin would be the target of the Alliance if they win HOH, and Robert immediately started distancing himself from Justin. If Robert would bail on his closest friend in this house, why should anyone trust him? Alison leaves to do whatever Alison does.
Jee asks if Jun had heard Jee was the next to go. No, says Jun, Robert was next. (Correct.) But-but-but that's not what Alison said. Jun scolds Jee that he should never believe anything Alison says, and implies that Robert has his hands up her butt and Alison is just a ventriloquist’s dummy. Jun says Jee is wasting his emotion feeling bad about making a deal when he knew Justin was toast. Robert knew too, and he doesn't feel at all guilty.
Erika and Alison are in the bathroom, Alison makes her play for a housewide Jun eviction. She says even Jee wants her out, Erika mildly challenges that, saying she would have seen that on Jee's face when they interact, he's that kind of person. No, no, Alison says he wants her out! So do the Stooges. She comments that no one could beat Erika and Jack in the final. Alison also says she doesn't think Jee would use the Veto anymore.
Jun tells Jack she told Jee to stop feeling guilty. Maybe he can play the game on his own now.
Nomination time - Erika has nominated Justin and Robert.
Jack chuckles to Erika, after the ceremony, that Alison wants to be the only player to float, that's why she wants Jun out so bad. Erika agrees. Later, Erika says she wanted to say positive things about Justin and Robert in the ceremony. Justin laughs that the producers will be annoyed that it wasn't a high tension ceremony.
Out back, Robert says it was a good ceremony. Alison says it was hard, but it was good. Robert makes mention that he told Jun that she is on not on their side and she is no longer a Stooge Associate (turn in your rubber nose!). Alison is thrilled. She doesn't blame Robert for being upset. (What is this about? Did Jee blab what Jun said about Robert bailing on Justin?) Robert says "it's f**king on!" (Monica flashback – arrgh!)
Alison says she talked to Erika about Project Jun, but Erika said she'd have to be approached by the rest of the house (lie). Later Erika joins the conversation, and they make another pitch. Erika asks if they are sure Jee feels that way. They assure her he does.
Erika discusses with Jack. They agree that if the whole house is after Jun, it takes the pressure off Jack to win HOH next week... and if he does, he puts up Jun... and Robert, and let the house decide!
Madness ensues! Alison muttering to herself Jack must go... Erika mentions that Robert lashed out at Jun, Jun comes into the bathroom with Erika saying, "oh my god, Robert HATES me!"... Jack is worried that Justin isn't showing his hand at all... Alison, Robert, and Jee seem to be forming the New Stooges, in anticipation of Justin's exit... [Editor’s Note: Would that make Alison “Shemp”?] Meanwhile, Alison is playing like she is loyal to Jack and Erika...
Lots of things revealed in a conversation with Erika and Justin. Erika says that Jee has ASKED the Alliance to keep him from winning it (maybe Jee ain't so stupid... if the competition is something that he can be blocked in, he has no responsibility for not winning it, if it is individual, and he does win, he already warned the Alliance he was going to try!). Justin says Robert lashed out at Jun because she openly told them that she has switched to the Alliance. Erika says that in the cage, they only told Jun that she was not being nominated this week, it wasn't like a formal induction! Justin is confused as to why she would so vocally ditch the Stooges, but Erika says they are only too happy to accept her vote. Justin says you'd have to be. Justin continues about how disappointed he is in Jun, and that he can leave the house with no regrets (if he had kept Nathan, that would have been one, he says) but doesn't know Erika well enough to know that she has gone Sphinx on him.
