As expected today/tonight were not terribly eventful. To my surprise, early in the day, Joey actually did try to campaign a little. She told only Hayden about her Team America thing, and he later described that to Nicole as "an elaborate lie that he can't even tell because people might believe it." Then after a few short talks that got her basically nowhere, Joey gave up again and contemplated eating hotdogs and just taking penalty votes since she knows she is going home anyway. She didn't do it though.
Caleb spent most of his day (I'm sure this will shock you) talking about and thinking about Amber. I heard very little game talk out of him outside of re-confirming with everyone he talked to that Joey was still going to be voted out. Then in an act of what looks like rejection depression, he went to sleep before night time.
At some point in the early evening Amber and Christine, who are the two female members of The Bomb Squad, had a conversation on the hammock about how they need to be more proactive and about their true feelings about some of the boys they are in the alliance with. They both agree they would like to go to final 3 with Frankie, but the other guys need to go. I'm not sure it was said, but it was definitely implied they would need to go sooner than later.
I'm never quite sure what Nicole and Hayden are talking about when they talk. I understand the words they are saying, but I just don't get it. They had a conversation for a short time in the hive room where they talked about how they need to spend less time together and Nicole said something about having Christine talk to Hayden for her so that they are not seen together as much. Then it got all awkward and giggly as it tends to do any time those two start talking.
After leaving the Hive Room, I'm not sure what EXACTLY happened, but there was a lot of crying from various girls in the house. First Nicole started crying.. Then Victoria.. Then Brittany and Joey started talking about how nice it is to cry and I think Joey might have shed a few tears. Anyway, it was a big cry fest for a little while there.
Meanwhile in the other room, Zach, Frankie, and Christine talked about how silly it was that people were already crying after a week. They talked about having a hard time sympathizing with the criers because they are so happy to be in the game, and made a couple good cracks about them.
Then, suddenly in the crying side of the house a prayer circle was held...
At some point during the night Frankie and Zach reconvened to talk once again about how everyone had to go starting with the girls and ending with the powerhouse guys etc.. They have a lot of plans, but the problem is they are getting really far ahead of themselves. Frankie is playing so well socially that he will likely survive his current impulsiveness, but I'm not sure if Zach will survive. That makes me a little sad because as far as feed entertainment go, he has me sold.
Very late in the evening/early in the morning Caleb woke up and had a long hot tub convo with Devin. I would call the conversation pure comedy. Caleb was down about the Amber thing so Devin started giving him a pep talk, singing him songs, and professing his bro love for him. I don't know why Caleb feels like he needs Amber when clearly Devin is in love with him. The conversation is worth a flashback just for the humor if you can stand to listen to Devin.
Later on Frankie more clearly tried to explain to Caleb that Amber wasn't the one. He also said he now considers her a liability in their alliance. They spent a lot of time talking about whether they think Devin is shady or not and going over things like who else they want in their alliance (lol what?). Caleb says he wants to take Hayden to the end now. Both of them sound like they are going to move towards kind of shutting Amber out of the alliance. The second week model curse may happen again this season after all.
As far as the rest of the night goes, everything was typical. There was pool playing and cooking and eating and joking around. Plans were made for a prom that is supposedly happening tomorrow night. I'm still unclear on who is actually taking who to said prom or how it will work as they have no music etc.. Nothing really out of the ordinary happened. I'm still waiting for the first eviction when things should start to get more intense. As of now, Joey, the first member of Team America, is still set to be the one going home on Thursday. Barring some crazy production intervention I don't see that changing. As always you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 on twitter for more overnight feed updates. Until tomorrow night...
