Episode Summary

EDIT
Bunky walks the thin line between victory and defeat, saying, "I lost HoH, but I put up a good fight. Now I think I'll be nominated." Hardy's third reign as HoH spells trouble for Will, who points out that, "Historically, I'm in trouble. Hardy has nominated me twice before." Nicole, on the other hand, is thrilled that Hardy is in charge again because it helps push their plan forward. "I'm elated," she says. "Now I just have to hold up my end and win HoH next." With a third opportunity to nominate fellow HouseGuests, Hardy reflects on his previous chances and says that this time is harder than either of those. The remaining HouseGuests are all "people I enjoy being around," he says. In an effort to smooth things over and maybe escape the seemingly inevitable nomination, Will turns on the charm to entertain Hardy, a maneuver Nicole notices. She tells Will she thinks it was a good move and Will asks her if she can save him from eviction if Hardy does nominate him. Nicole is non-committal, saying that she likes Will only "50 percent of the time." Will wants Nicole to lobby Hardy to nominate Bunky and Monica, but Nicole isn't sure she can make that happen. Privately, Nicole admits that, in her opinion, Hardy presents the only real threat to her winning, because so much of her strategy depends on his support. Later, Hardy tells Nicole that deciding on nominees is really hard because he can't figure out how people are going to respond if they are nominated and not evicted. With the end of their four-day peanut butter and jelly diet rapidly approaching, the HouseGuests start to get impatient for real food again. Will leads a 120-second countdown until the Storage Room doors open, giving them access to a fast-food meal Big Brother ordered for them. As they reach the big moment, nothing happens; they remain locked out. The door finally clicks open, and everyone is able to enjoy a normal meal again. The fast food whets their appetites for regular rations, leading into the next Food Competition. In the backyard the HouseGuests find enormous building blocks, color-coded for different food groups, that they will use to build a tower. For each block from the different food groups they use, they will win one item of their choice from that group. As the blocks are all used, they remove pieces from the bottom and place them on the top until the tower falls over. During the contest, Bunky feels that Hardy was being rude and critical, saying, "Hardy is disrespectful and doesn't realize it." Placing the blocks high on the tower requires the use of ladders, terrifying Monica, who is scared of heights. To give their support, Nicole and Hardy follow her up the ladder and stand directly behind her to help her get over her fear. Everyone is happy at the end since they worked together, and they join in a group hug after the tower eventually falls.moreless
