Welcome to the second episode of the tenth season of Big Brother. When we last saw the thirteen new contestants, Jessie and Renny had been put up for nomination after Jerry developed an alliance with Brian, Dan, and Ollie.
However, those who have been watching Showtime and/or the live feeds know that something dramatic went down that have resulted in major changes in nominations and alliances. Tonight we find out exactly what happened before the feeds were turned on late Sunday night…
…But first, we must sit through the standard opening that replays everything we saw just two days ago. Ugh, these intro videos still bother me, as does Renny’s awful cackling. Wow, the narrator actually gives us the scoop that some “major betrayal” goes down tonight!
Finally, we begin with the second element of the Tuesday show that we always see – the reactions to the nominations. Brian has no problem taking credit for Jerry’s nominations, and that he “exploited the trust” of the old man. Jerry claims that being the first HOH is the “first step of his plan”. Renny, though, feels that the “incident” was no big deal, and definitely not worth a nomination. Jessie, though, blames the “old girl”. Hey, at least he didn’t say it was his awesome physique that caused the problem.
Jessie won’t talk to Renny about the situation, which leads Renny to explain to use the definition of a “punk boy”. I won’t bother you with the details. Jessie moves on to complain to Jerry about her, while Renny whines to Brian and others. She wants Brian to go get Jerry, who is telling Jessie that he has no real problems with him.
Michelle interrupts their talk to make sure Jerry’s ok, and to give him a hug. Jerry goes on to tell an old Bible story about cutting King Solomon’s baby in half. Say what? Jessie doesn’t understand it, either.
Renny is still whining about how Jessie’s a “weasel”. “He got off light”. Jessie walks by and shakes his head, and Renny goes on and on. “You keep walking away.” He gives her a shot, but again walks away to Renny’s continual babble.
Meanwhile, the self-anointed brain trust gathers in one of the rooms to pat themselves on the back. Brian asks, “is anybody even playing this game?” They already predict they’re going to control Jerry’s future votes.
Renny is still so upset that she wants a visit from her only friend – Jerry’s wine. “Sure, I’ll give you two glasses.” We cut to the house drinking in the HOH, and Renny is sitting alone. She announces she has something to say, and issues a public apology to Jessie. My God, we’re now on minute ten on this whole late-night noise incident?
Not happy with Jessie’s reaction to her apology, Renny now says he must stop “with that lying”. She claims that she did say the night of the incident “in a very kind manner” that she said she was sorry.
Moving outside, Brian states the obvious when he tells Michelle and Ollie that she’s going to self-destruct. You think? “We all know that she’s going to blow up.” Brian thinks that voting out Jessie is a smarter move. He moves on to tell my girl Angie the same thing, telling her that he’ll give her a week if she votes his way. “I’ll be completely honest. (Jerry) has done everything I’ve told him to do since we started.” Uh oh.
OMG, he won’t shut up. He’s making the same deal with Steven! He goes on to tell Memphis that he has no problem being put on the block. He ups the ante with him by promising Memphis two or three weeks. Brian’s not happy with his reaction.
Reunited with his cronies, Brian informs Dan that Jerry wanted to initially put him up, and he was the one who saved the day. “We don’t have an opposition right now.” He says that even if Jessie wins POV, they have it set up that whomever he wants will be the first out. Oh yeah?
After commercials, it’s romance time. Ollie and April are flirting – first in the living room and then outside, where he decides it’s time to talk about “some scenarios”. He promises her that he’d only put her up if they “put a gun to my head”. My question is which head?
Jerry announces it’s time to pick POV players. Oooh, my girl April’s wearing a bikini! Jerry pulls out Memphis’ name out of the bag, while Renny gets Michelle and Jessie gets April. Nice halter and jean shorts, April. Yes, my girl Angie gets to host the competition.
As everybody files out in “nightwear”, Jerry says that he needs to win to ensure his nominations stand. Renny says she’s not going to give up, while Jessie says he wants to win to prove to everybody he deserves to stay.
The contest involves tearing up pillows that match their clothing to find teddy bears, and then struggle through a honey pit to deposit the bears in jars. Oooh, I like April in this contest.
Renny’s having trouble getting through the honey, much to the amusement of Brian. Memphis takes an early lead, and Jerry is already exhausted when he deposits his first bear. Michelle claims she’s an awesome competitor who can take on “all the boys whenever”. Well, she does jump ahead for a time.
At this point, everybody has two bears…except for Renny who finally deposits her first one. She gets “the wave” from the cheering section for her efforts. Jessie, meanwhile, is making a comeback and is tied with Michelle. Jessie, however, grabs the last bear and wins!
Jessie, obviously, is pleased with himself, while Renny claims she just wanted to get one bear “for my children…and America”. Jerry’s not happy that he has to come up with another nomination, while Brian brags that he now has to come up with another person for Jerry.
After the break, Brian and Dan are discussing the POV. “Memphis did well…too well”, claims Brian, who is obviously still upset that he didn’t jump at his three week offer. “I’ll take care of”, he says. “Memphis, you had a good run.”
Brian heads upstairs to inform Jerry of this plan. “Memphis has got to go.” They decide that they’ll use the fact he already won a car as an excuse to put him up, and that everybody expects Renny will be the one who goes home.
Here’s where Brian makes his big mistake. He walks in on Ollie reassuring the girls (April, Keesha, Libra) that they’re not going to be on the block. “This week, Memphis is going home.” Keesha and Libra kind of roll their eyes. “I thought he was trying to be a Dr. Will flashback”, complains Libra. “He’s trying to tell us what to do”, adds Keesha. April is shocked to learn that Ollie is in an alliance with Brian and Dan. “I think that he would have least state something to me if they were in an alliance.” BTW, she looks fantastic in high heels.
Keesha tells the other girls (Michelle and Angie) that “Brian is a threat to the girls”. Angie says that he’s very good at “convincing people things”. At the same time, April and Libra have a similar conversation. April is still upset at the thought of being betrayed by Ollie. “They’re going to take out their biggest threats (Jessie and Memphis), and take us out one by one. Why are we doing their dirty work?” April says she’s going to confront Ollie.
Keesha comes right out with it. “Are you with Brian and Dan?” Ollie doesn’t fess up, but says “I’m not against you”. April tells him she feels used, and he says he’d never do that to her. He says in the diary room he feels hurt by this accusation. “I can’t believe you’d believe I’d betray you like that.”
Ollie informs Memphis of Brian’s plan. “They think they’re just gonna backdoor me?” Meanwhile, Keesha and Libra are exhausted from “all of this gameplay”. Libra says they need to get Brian up on the block, but Keesha says she “doesn’t want to risk it”. The only way this can work, says Libra, is for all nine of them to confront Jerry. The two of them, along with Ollie, go out to talk with the rest of the house.
Once the consensus is reached, the big concern is how to get Jerry away from Brian and Dan. They send April in her best stripper heels and miniskirt to ask him if she can use her restroom. I approve of this move! “Well, that means I’ve got to go with her”, says a thrilled Jerry. Meanwhile, the rest of the clan is up waiting for him. “Let’s start the revolution.”
Ollie informs Jerry that Brian is making deals with everybody, and that he’s “making you do your dirty work”. Jerry’s not happy that they’re trying to threaten him. They promise that none of them will put him up next week, but he claims he’s not sure he can “trust any of you enough to believe that”.
It’s the moment of truth, and Jessie couldn’t be more pleased as he does the staged look at the wall of photos. “There will be people shocked by the end of this veto ceremony.” Jerry’s not wearing any military gear today because he has to go back on his word. Brian still believes that Memphis is going up, and “I love every second of it”.
Jessie gives Renny the opportunity to convince Jessie why she should come off the block, and she again rambles on about how it’s all his fault that they’re on the block. Jessie takes himself down, and Jerry gets up and explains how this is a difficult chore. Brian and Dan still have cocky grins that quickly dissipate as Jerry describes the alliance he joined on day one. “I found out that this person that I went with had other alliances. It got all over the house what was going on, and everybody got together. Eight people got together, and they have chosen who they want to see put up for nomination to leave the house. I am going to honor that, and I choose you, Brian.” Wow!
Dan is stunned, and Libra couldn’t be more pleased. Ollie says “don’t let the preacher’s son fool you. Trust me, I’m bad. I’m dirty.” Libra says that she knew Brian was a snake from day one, while Brian is shocked that this went down. “I still have some tricks up my sleeve.” Sure you do.
And with that we’re done. I’d like to conclude with a thanks to the auto-recovery feature on Word, which saved a couple of thousand words when my laptop died on me at the :45 mark.
