William Shakespeare once said, "If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us shall we not revenge?" Ole Billy Shakes knew his shit. He knew that the primal instinct to avenge one's honor is something that cannot be ignored or laid to rest. Self preservation lies deep within each and every one of us. So when someone lies to our faces and plunges a sword deep into our flesh, the only natural response is to pull out the sword, dust off one's trousers, and then plunge it back into the heart of our foe. Then again, the Big Brother house is full of plastic knives. Let's recap, shall we?
First things first, Jason slept for the past month so back to collecting pennies to win a date with Tad Hamilton he goes. While that is sad, the best news of the night is that I have successfully put a stop to the Battle Of The Block! You're welcome Big Brother fans. I am simply here to serve.
This brings us to the first solo HOH comp. And it was an Endurance Comp to boot! Perched on a wooden plank and attached to a tilting wall, the HG's suffered through rain, guano, and possessed eagles straight out of a Hitchcock film. Steve dropped first followed by Austin, Julia, Meg, Jackie and Liz.
With Becky, Clay, Shelli, James and Johnny Mac left in the game, I threw another virgin on the fire, disrobed, and chanted under the Blue Moon (If you are unaware of the importance of the Blue Moon, I suggest you listen to the last Big Brother Gossip Show - live Saturdays at 10 pm or available for free on iTunes!). My goal this week, and all weeks, is to see Shelli march herself and her numerous hair pieces out the front door. There are many reasons why I want Shelli out of the house - she eats popcorn with a spoon, she's always rubbing on her son, her make-up application takes precedence over game talk, the HOH letter from her dog - but the main reason is the smugness. The entitlement. The "I'm better than you" air she cloaks herself in. Plus, I think it'll be hysterical for her to leave before Jury where Clay will be left to his own devices (and Julia).
And so, with a finger prick of blood dripping into my cauldron, I closed my eyes and called upon the Goddess to bless us. And bless us she did! Falling like dominoes Clay and Becky dropped. Shortly thereafter we lost Johnny Mac leaving us with only Shelli and James. Shelli, worried about being HOH for a third time, quickly made a deal with James that she and Clay won't be backdoored this week. Then she dropped and JAMES IS OUR HOH.
If you've been watching the Live Feeds, then you know that Jason left behind some very explicit instructions for James, Jackie and Meg. He basically told them that Clay and Shelli are running the house and need to get the hell out of Dodge ASAP. Will James remember this advice? Probably not. James is a flighty flippant doofus if we're being honest here. BUT Jackie is not so flighty. Jackie wants revenge for last week. And if Meg can manage to stay awake for more than 15 minutes at a time, I'm sure she wants revenge for Jason too. Let's hope these two ladies can keep James on the straight and narrow.
Meanwhile, Julia is now in the game and tensions with Austin are at an all time high. Julia finds Austin disgusting and untrustworthy. Liz is just like, "I knoooowwww, but he's in our alliance-uh." While Liz is happy to have Julia in the game, she's also a bit concerned about it. For starters, Liz is less than thrilled with how Julia was acting during the HOH. She cheered too loudly or something and Liz thought she was annoying-uh. Paranoia has set in with Liz regarding nominations so she's being extra careful about laying low this week. You see, she knows that James tried to throw the Battle Of The Block last week. In her mind, this means that he is sure to go after her (and maybe her sister too) this week. Little does she know that James has bigger fish to fry.
Up in the HOH with his best good friends Meg and Jackie, James is wondering who to target this week. Becky is also up in the HOH, but I wouldn't count her as one of James' best good friends. She's up there because she's a floater who switches her loyalty to whomever is in power. If you'll remember feedsters, she's been up Shelli and Clay's ass all week long, but now here she is up in the HOH counting herself part of James' alliance. She repeatedly says "What WE need to do... this is what WE should do." Becky, you are not WE. You are train debris.
Meg tells the group that if Shelli had won HOH, she would have definitely backdoored Jackie. Jackie, surprised, asks why. Meg tells her that Shelli is afraid of her. Meg then tells James that if she were HOH she'd put up Austin and Steve. James replies that Steve is going up no matter what, "I knew that as soon as I fell off the plank." Meg continues and says that when POV happens, James should pull off Steve and then put up Shelli. Liz and Julia, along with Becky, Jackie, and Meg, would vote to keep Austin. Clay and Vanessa would vote to keep Shelli. Becky then says, "We have to keep in mind that James can't play in HOH next week." Bitch, what are you talking about? Better yet, why are you even talking? Why are you in the HOH? Why do you think you're part of this group? Was that not you tonguing Vanessa's, Clay's, Shelli's asses yesterday? It makes me scream that she thinks she's a part of this group, but if she votes out Shelli I guess I'll have to get over it.
With the group in the HOH all hyped up and determined to avenge the memory of Jason, Meg reiterates that Clay and Shelli are a power couple. Jackie nods excitedly and launches into a tirade of fucks. "Fuck Shelli! They fucking blew it last week! They fucking screwed us over! I don't fucking care about them! They need to fucking go!" Well, fuck yeah! James then replies, "Basically what they did to us last week, we're doing to them." And there you have it. Shelli is the target. Will James follow through? Will Becky tattle to Clay and Shelli? Will Austin ever be alone in a room with Liz again? So many questions! Isn't it exciting?
