Hey, there, fellow voyeurs! Later on tonight, I'll be posting the latest in live feeds including the PoV meeting results which won't surprise anyone who watches or follows the live feeds. But, right now it's time to blog party through the newest episode! I'm putting this post up on time. However, I think that the CBS programming might be running a few minutes late due to golf.
First, here's a reminder of the blog pool match-ups (thanks, ORKMommy!):
Okay, a few minutes of recapping and we're finally into the show opening. They just showed the Phil teaser which ended Thursday's episode. All the hamsters are speculating what will be up for Da'Vonne and Vanessa.
Jace is going on about his bromance with Austin and their bro-codes.
The HoH Room reveal is for both James and Jason. Of course, it will be down to one HoH after the Battle of the Block. They chat. Jason doesn't care for Steve and doubts that John is really a dentist. James is a bit more quiet.
Takeover alert! It's Phil. He tells them of the Fast Forward in TAR -- now a BB Fast Forward Twist -- neither Vanessa nor Da'Vonne can be evicted this week. They can each take one houseguest with them, those people will be safe, too. They have thirty minutes to decide. Da'Vonne saves Liz while Vanessa saves Austin. Da'Vonne got some heat from both Audrey and Shelli because of their girls alliance.
Da'Vonne thinks that Shelli needs to be on the "edge" of the alliance because she's getting too close to Clay. Audrey wants to get in with Jason to better her chances. Da'Vonne and Audrey both want to work on the HOH's to get them on their side and target Jace.
Steve thinks he has an alliance with Da'Vonne. Not sure how that will play out. James and Jason tell Audrey she's safe. They told her they want an alliance with her and Da'Vonne. They plan to target Jace via the Backdoor.
James searches for pawns to put on the block and talks to Jackie. Jason does the same with John. They both talk to Meg. They talk to Steve -- Steve's afraid that he's a target. Steve knows the history of pawns sometimes going home. Poor Steve. He's being pressured.
Nominations Today is on the screen. The plan is for the Backdoor for sure. No key box again this year. I miss the key box. Jason nominates John and Becky. He gives a BS speech about strong competitors. James nominates Steve and Jackie, saying he's sure they'll get themselves off the block.
Audrey is glad everything worked out the way she planned it.
Volumes about Amanda, er, Audrey right there.
Battle of the Block time -- They're above the city of DuBoB, must build a new skyscraper by bringing 26 pieces across a beam and assembling it.
John and Becky win! James remains HoH and Jason is deposed.
