HOH Comp Results!!!
It didn't take too long for Shelby to drop, followed by Jason, who says he lost it while trying to adjust one of his hands. Shane, who had been sort of struggling from the beginning, is the next out (but I have a feeling he threw this comp). Weirdly, it was around this time that Scott asked Jason how many times the second HOH ended up being the winner of the season. Jason didn't know, but Scott actually did. (The answer is nobody.)
It was at this point that they had to switch to a one-handed grip (and a bit later Alex is warned because her other hand was touching the pole). Morgan drops, followed by Scott and Kryssie. Almost a full half hour later, a shivering (and upset) Danielle is out. A half hour later, the next to be eliminated is Whitney.
Another 15 minutes or so later, and Justin is out. How he held his crown in place is a mystery, as he was crouching and dancing throughout the whole game. Shelby even commented how he was doing "some Michael Jackson shit".
It's now between Alex and Neeley, and they begin chatting about deals. Neeley desperately wants a real bed to get some sleep, but Alex seriously wants HOH. Every offer one gives, the other says they'll do the same. There's even talk of sharing the HOH (ala James/Nicole), The negotiating ends after a few minutes, but both swears they'll keep the other safe.
Finally, just short of the 2 1/2 hour mark, Neeley's crown drops and Alex is the HOH! She runs around the backyard, hugging Shelby while Monte is standing there holding her key. She finally grabs it, and then the plotting over nominations begins.
So...your thoughts on this comp? Are you happy Alex won? Who should she nominate? Let's get some conversations going here!
