Recap, recap ...
Tonight, Frank and Bridgette will be torn apart ... or will they? (Referring to the secret room.)
Michelle is fussing about Bridgette. Whining. Poor baby. Frank advises Bridgette to win HoH. Bridgette tells us she doesn't have many friends in real life and Frank is her friend. Michelle tells Frank that if she used the veto on him, nine people would be mad at her. She bursts into tears.
James notices clues on the screen in the living room, "clues are all around you." Paul picks up on green words on certain signs in the rooms. He links it to flight 211 on the departure board. He calls Paris on one of the two phones. In the booth, he is told to go into a tunnel now or leave the booth and try when the coast is clear. Since there's a crowd, he runs out. He warns James and Corey to keep Frank and Bridgette away from the phone booth. Paul goes into a red tunnel. He gets a clue that there are 12 envelopes, one containing a round trip ticket to return into the game if evicted. They must remain sealed and cannot be exchanged with other hamsters. All of them end up with an envelope.
A segment on past partners in the game. Jason Roy thinks Da'Vonne needs to cool down a bit. Meg talks about James. She thinks James needs to watch out for Da'Vonne. Hayden talks about Nicole. They dated for about a year and a half, still friends. Boogie talks about Frank. He thinks Frank is playing a horrible game, shouldn't have told people about winning Road Kill.
Uh-oh. Julie tells us that we at home can have a major impact on the game. Hmm ... maybe we'll be allowed to duct tape Paul's mouth shut!
To the living room ...
Julie explains the tickets. August 18 is the expiration date on them.
Frank -- Family, love ya. Bridgette, class act, favorite people. The opposite applies to the others, sorry not sorry, never want to see you.
Bridgette -- All goodness and light speech.
The votes to evict:
Da'Vonne -- Frank
Paul -- Frank
Paulie -- Frank
Nicole -- Frank
Victor -- Frank
Michelle -- Frank
Zakiyah -- Frank
Corey -- Frank
Natalie -- Frank
Unanimous ... Frank is voted out.
His envelope contents will be revealed to the entire house (and us) after commercials.
Inside the envelope is a ... one way ticket home!
HoH - Perfect Shot. Red ball and yellow ball, roll red ball up the creek into the box. Can practice with yellow ball. The ball might fall off into a numbered box. If no one gets a perfect shot, the highest score wins. If the red ball goes out of play, player out. Four lowest scores are Have Nots.
They're practicing. This is going to go over the showtime. I'll set up a separate post to update and announce HoH.
America's Care Package -- Can send one hamster a care package with an advantage, first one has a Never Have Not pass. Each hamster can only win once.
