Episode Summary

EDIT
Having put Kent and Autumn up for eviction, Krista says she has no regrets and believes that Autumn is not emotionally ready for the game. Her nomination of Kent was luck of the draw, but he's not a sure thing to stay in he house. As part of the strong Chill Town alliance, Mike says he thinks Kent is "just grumpy" and goes so far as to whisper "I hate him" to Will and Shannon. Hardy has the ear of Monica and Bunky and explains to them that Autumn should be at home with her son. That seemingly makes three votes to evict Autumn and three to evict Kent, leaving Nicole as the swing vote. Conflicted about her decision, Nicole says she's likely to just flip a coin to decide, unless something drastic happens before the vote. Nicole is still trying to infiltrate Chill Town, who seem receptive to having her. Adding Nicole to the Mike-Will-Shannon alliance would give the new Chill Town enough votes to evict anyone they wanted, so long as one of them gets Head of Household and makes the nominations. Nicole tells them, "I like you guys. I really like hanging out with you." While Nicole acts as a double agent, others are worried her loyalties may be truly changing. Kent asks Monica if she thinks Nicole would lie to his face about her intentions and Monica says yes. While the Chill Town romance between Shannon and Will continues to heat up, some doubt arises about what's really happening. Will wonders if Shannon is using him to gain advantage and said that while he does like her, he's using her "for strategic purposes as well." Shannon said early in her stay that she wouldn't leave her boyfriend for anyone in the house, but later says she wants Will to come back for her if he gets evicted before she does. Up first, Hardy and Monica both vote to evict Autumn. Shannon's boyfriend Jim is confused about the in-house relationship as well. He says that he doesn't know if Shannon's relationship with Will is based on "passion or strategy," but that he feels he "deserves an explanation." Regarding Will's earlier comment that her boyfriend is "out of here," Jim says Will needs to "say it to his face, and at 165 pounds, he should bring Hardy with him." Overall, despite his conflicted feelings, Jim says he loves Shannon very much and is supporting her. At this point Bunky votes to evict Autumn, making it three against her, with Chill Town and Nicole not yet weighing in. Shannon isn't the only one in the house with support from home. Autumn thinks of her son Justus every day and says he's the sole reason she's there. She wants to win the Big Brother 2 prize so she can give him the best life possible. Kent, her companion on the chopping block, has his family to worry about as well, including his two children, Alex and Maddie. While talking live with host Julie Chen, both Autumn and Kent say they are content to abide by the vote, whichever way it goes. But Kent has strong feelings about those he feels aren't playing the game with class and warns he'll be "hell to live with" if he stays. After talking with Krista in the HoH room,Julie announces that Autumn has been evicted by a unanimous vote of 7-0. Autumn gets up and walks out of the house, not pausing to receive any farewells from the other HouseGuests. In the studio, she sits with Julie and says that she had said her goodbyes to the people she wanted to before she was evicted. Autumn says she is disappointed in Hardy, saying he convinced everyone that she should be home with her son without consulting her feelings. The level of competition in the game was more than Autumn said she expected, and she feels that being voted out unanimously means "seven people think I'm better than what's going on in the house." With one more Houseuest gone, it's time for the new Head of Household to be established. In a competition called "By the Numbers," the HouseGuests are asked number-based questions that they answer silently, by raising a paddle with a number on it. Each of the questions is about the remaining nine HouseGuests. Chill Town is relying on putting one of their members into the private bedroom, but Will gets knocked out by the first question, along with Bunky and Kent. Monica goes out next, followed by Nicole, then Mike. Shannon and Hardy are the last two contestants in a "sudden death" battle. After they both incorrectly answer two questions, Shannon loses out on a third question, giving the HoH status to Hardy.moreless
