Yep, there's a new comp in town! And, it sounds a lot more interesting than the Battle of the Block ... which I didn't like at all. As tonight's show airs, I'll be live updating this entry with the major events. Refresh the page to get the latest! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Come watch the show with us!
But, first (in the words of the revered ChenBot) ...
Since we didn't know the returning players until after the pool cut-off and didn't include them ... plus, we had all these folks climbing over the fence trying to get into the pool -- the blog pool has been updated.
Also, with Glenn being the first boot when he barely had a chance to play, his pool people have been reassigned. No one already in the pool for hamsters other than Glenn has been changed. Yes, Petals, you still have Jozea and love him.
Nicole Franzel - Kelsey NY, Grove Wiley, Nickelpeed, Sharon C
Frank Eudy - Dr_Celine, Dennis Comfort, Stephanie in Baltimore, PDX Granny
Da'Vonne Rogers - Donna in Alabama, uncartie, MarthaLight, Donna NY
James Huling - Becky, Donna in Alabama, Sharon S, Willie J
Ready for some hamster watching?
Gee, starting off with a recap for a change. Heh.
All the hugging after nominations is a bit much too much. Jozea thinks that Da'Vonne is his buddy. Oh, he's so wrong! Meanwhile, Paulie knew it was coming. He's not thrilled, but he's not mad. Jozea is mad. He rules everyone, y'know.
Jozea decides to talk to Nicole. She tells him everyone else came to her and asked that she not put them up. He tells her he's 100% real and that he won't suck up. She claims she just wanted to get her team further. He does NOT tell her she's his target from the start.
They have to gather in the living room. A new comp and, if you don't win, you could end up BB Road Kill. An RV will arrive weekly, each will compete, winner will be secretly told and will (also secretly) nominate a third nominee for eviction.
Jozea, talking to Paul and Paulie, thinks Frank should go up. But Jozea's not worried -- he's sure he will get all the votes. Apparently, he doesn't know the votes are to EVICT. Heh. He just might get his wish.
Da'Vonne recruits Zakiyah to their side. It's a willing recruit. She thinks the newbies are erratic and don't know how to play the game. She's right. Michelle wants to join them, too.
The eight newbie/returnee group try to decide on a name. Eight-Pack, it is.
Time for the Road Kill Comp! Nicole is in the RV first. She has to take off her clothes and get down to her swimsuit while "driving" to the lake. Three buttons must be constantly pressed. With each one let go even for a moment, the timer goes faster.
Whether they win or not is in a clue inside a tackle box. It's secret, but they can share if they wish. Frank wins Road Kill!
Frank tells James he got it. The new crew is trying to figure out who won. Frank is faking it with them. Jozea is sure Paulie got it. After all, according to him, he's always right.
Now Frank tells Da'Vonne he won.
Bronte, Bridgett and Natalie want to form an all girl alliance ans show girls can stick together.They decide they're the Spy Girls and give themselves code names. They don't know Tiffany is watching.
Frank works with his main alliance (the vets) to decide who is going up. (Yes, Nicole is in on the secret, too.)
The Category 4 team gets their mystery punishment. They must wear nothing but pixels for the next week. The cardboard pieces barely cover their privates.
Road Kill reveal of the third nominee. It's PAUL! He takes it better than Jozea.
Jozea still thinks he's totally safe because "everybody loves me."
