Russell has made one great point - if either Jordan or Michelle gets HOH he will be the odd one out. Kevin appears to be playing along, agreeing that if Russell stayed in the house he would be the target. Russell's idea is for Kevin to approach Michelle about banding together to save him. "This is the biggest move of the game", he tells Kevin.
Kevin is usually not a good liar, but I can't believe for a second that he's falling for this.
Edit: When Russell went inside after their conversation, Kevin started singing "Do you think I'm stupid". So much for any hope of Russell making it past Thursday.
