Good evening! Ready for a blog party? Tonight either Clay or Shelli will leave us. Oh, boohoo.
Before we get going, here's the latest update on the blog pool:
Jeff - No pool people due to being announced late in cast
Audrey - David, Chase, Orkmommy, Nicole K
Jason - Witt, Sharon, WolfpackRed
As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest. As always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to see you there!
"The hunters have become the hunted," says Julie regarding Clay and Shelli. Now a recap ...
The HitMen (Cody, Derrick) will be there. And, it looks like an endurance comp will start. If indeed endurance, I'll create a separate post to cover it after the show ends.
Julie tells us that Clay and Shelli agreed not to campaign against each other. Tears. James wants Shelli out. We'll see. Blech, Clay and Shelli hugging and crying. I don't need to see that, do you?
James tells Austin that Clay and Shelli told him about Judas and the hinky votes. Austin is ticked. He tells Vanessa, now she's mad, too. Now Shelli wants to try to mend fences with her 6th Sense alliance. She wants to stay.
Now they're kissing. And, thankfully, interrupted.
The 6th folks want to keep Shelli while James and Co. want her gone. They think they can knock both out in succession. Jackie is suspicious (rightfully) of Vanessa.
The twins would prefer that Shelli go. Austin is now torn.
Derrick and Cody segment. Derrick likes Johnny Mac, rooting for James. Cody likes James, too. Holla!
Finally to the live vote:
Clay - Thanks God and family and others. Special place in my heart for all, vote for Shelli to stay.
Shelli - Shout-outs. Tears, Clay is her heart. Want to live in real world with you. Loyal and fair game.
The votes to evict:
Vanessa - Clay
Meg - Clay
Austin - Clay
Jackie - Clay
To commercial ...
Liz - Clay
Julia - Clay
Steve - Clay
Becky - Clay
John - Clay (It's been a weird day.)
Unanimous, Clay is evicted. More tears from Shelli. I can only hope she's too distraught to do well in an endurance comp. When Julie asks Clay if he loves Shelli, "Ummm ... that's a big word." Ha.
HoH Comp - All in jury from here on out. Jury members might come back, she hints. Comp called Midway Mayhem. Fill up funnel with gas and go across the lawn to fill gas tank. Three checkered balls to reach as it fills -- 5 grand, never have not pass or HoH, each ball. Game ends at claim for HoH. And, yes, it's slippery lanes.
To follow the HoH Comp as it plays out on the live feeds, I made this post. Meet me there!
Next week is the double eviction!
