BB3 Ep #19 (Two Hour Special)
AIRED:
BB HOUSE BECOMES CROW'S NEST! Immediately after Josh's 5-0 eviction, Chiara says that she was afraid Roddy was going to be the one sent home when she heard the initial vote count. Roddy agrees, telling the group he was afraid he was the one about to get evicted unanimously, prompting Jason's realization that despite their friendship, Roddy doesn't trust him. While Marcellas was happy that Josh left, he feels "amazingly blessed" to have his good friend Amy back in the House. Lisa says she was happy to see Amy, but feels "selfish and greedy" about voting against bringing Eric back to the game. She says that in light of finding out Chiara voted to evict her, she wouldn't have been able to resume an alliance with Chiara, Roddy and Eric if he returned, and was afraid Eric wouldn't understand why she had changed her mind. Roddy, who quit the last HoH contest right after it began, is having regrets and blames his decision on feeling "nervous and sleepy" from having been nominated. Amy didn't quit the Competition and won HoH, which makes Chiara nervous because, as Lisa points out, Chiara nominated Marcellas and Amy for eviction. Roddy, sensing he might be nominated, doesn't talk directly to Amy, but instead turns to her closest ally Marcellas in an attempt to clear the air. Marcellas tells Roddy that he has the "taint" of Josh and Chiara's actions on him, and people consider him the mastermind behind their maneuvers. Roddy responds that he's playing the game in a straightforward manner, and worries that Marcellas doesn't understand that. Danielle gets suspicious of Roddy and Marcellas, and wonders if they have a secret pact. Marcellas talks privately with Danielle about Roddy, and Danielle calls Roddy "the devil." After Marcellas indicates discomfort about telling Amy outright to nominate Roddy, Danielle tells him to send Amy to her and she'll take care of it. FOOD & LUXURY, PART 1 Before the next Food Competition, the girls are asked to change into their swimsuits, while the guys are given new Speedo trunks to wear. Each HouseGuest is assigned a day of the week, then enters an enclosed booth where they have to catch 10 food vouchers that are blown around by fans in the floor. Whatever vouchers they catch have to be stuffed inside their bathing suits to count toward their total. If someone fails to catch 10 vouchers, the HouseGuests are on PB&J for that day of the week. Chiara goes first and gets only 7 vouchers, putting them on the Spartan diet for the rest of that day. Lisa goes next and gets 10, then Danielle gets 13, before Roddy gets his hands on only 7, giving them another day of just PB&J. Gerry gets things back on track with 11 vouchers, then does his triumphant "gorilla dance," much to Marcellas's horror. Jason gets 19 vouchers, the high for the day, followed by Marcellas, who collects 18. Amy goes into the booth and gets 10 vouchers, giving everyone food for the day that Roddy had lost for them. Also in the booth for the HouseGuests to try to catch were "luxury dollars," which they decide to pool together so Gerry can send his wife a 28th anniversary present. Touched by the group's generosity, Gerry says he's buying his wife an orange tree, and every time he eats one of the sweet oranges from the tree, he'll remember their gesture. LUXURY, PART 2: SURPRISE CONCERT WITH SHERYL CROW! Sitting at the dining room table, the HouseGuests declare their need for music. Lisa says she would take even some light elevator music playing in the background, and Danielle says they need music "for their soul and feet." Amy gathers the group for a Luxury Competition and tells them to dress for a "special night out." Their Luxury Competition goal is to find 18 CD cases that have been hidden around the House, then put them together as a jigsaw puzzle on the dining room table. While the rest of the HouseGuests tear the House apart looking for the cases, Lisa put together the puzzle which reads: "Sheryl Crow--Live in Backyard." As the HouseGuests read the completed puzzle, out in the backyard Sheryl Crow and her band launch into her 1994 smash hit "All I Wanna Do." The HouseGuests storm into the yard and find her on a full stage, with lights and a full sound system. They dance and laugh together, forgetting all thoughts about strategies and alliances for the time being. Chiara later says it was "nice to forget the game and just have fun." Roddy said Sheryl is a "beautiful woman" and that "all the boys noticed that." Jason summed up the overall sentiment of the House when he said, "A private concert with Sheryl Crow. It doesn't get any better than that." After her second song, "Soak Up the Sun," Sheryl sits down on the lip of the stage and talks to each of the HouseGuests individually. Roddy jokingly says later that she whispered into his ear that he shouldn't trust Gerry; he plans to alter his strategy accordingly. After dancing along to her latest single, "Steve McQueen," the HouseGuests wave goodbye to Sheryl and her band, while Marcellas proclaims this year's BIG BROTHER gang the "most spoiled cast in Reality TV history." THE DEVIL VS. THE SAINT Jason starts to worry that his habit of stuttering and fidgeting when nervous is starting to give away his strategy to anyone who's observant. But for the time being at least, others are focused on Roddy and Chiara and trying to get Amy to nominate them together for eviction. Marcellas explains to Amy that while she was gone, Chiara voted against her best friend Lisa, then tried to strong-arm him and Jason into voting how she wanted them to. With her own reasons to target Chiara, Amy listens to Danielle, who explains that Roddy needs to go because of his overall strength in the game. Amy tells Danielle that if everyone is committed to voting out Roddy, she wasn't going to nominate him because she wanted to send Chiara home and nobody else. Amy goes to Roddy and tells him that there's pressure to nominate him, but that she doesn't want to do it. Amy returns to Marcellas and tells him she's going to nominate Chiara and Jason to guarantee her departure. Sensing that things are afoot, Roddy invites Marcellas into the hot tub for a one-on-one chat. As Roddy strips down to his underwear to jump in, Marcellas later says he felt obliged to listen, if only just to be around Roddy, whom he calls "devastatingly handsome." Roddy offers Marcellas an opportunity to work together, which would guarantee them as the final two in the game. Marcellas accepts the offer and tells Roddy that he's "exhilarated" to be a part of it. Danielle approaches Amy in the HoH room, where Amy tells her she wants to nominate Chiara and Jason, calling it a match-up of "The Devil vs. The Saint." Danielle promises to "have a Holy gospel fit" if Jason leaves, but agrees when Amy promises to go after Roddy next week. NOMINATIONS On Nomination day, the whole House is nervous. Amy says preparing the Nomination box is the hardest thing she's done in the House, including leaving when she was evicted. Gathering everyone at the table, Amy declares that she wanted to win HoH to save herself, not to evict anyone else. She starts the ceremony by pulling Lisa's key, followed by Marcellas, Danielle, Gerry and Jason, leaving Chiara and Roddy as the nominees. Amy swears that her decision wasn't based on revenge, but that Chiara was the one she was "least close to" when she left the House and that Roddy was her "biggest supporter." Chiara storms out of the House to the hammock, where Lisa joins and comforts her. Chiara says she doesn't believe Amy's motive "wasn't revengeful," and that she had "no chance" of avoiding nomination. Amy tells Marcellas that there was too much at risk in the House by not nominating Roddy and Chiara together, saying that if she hadn't returned, someone else would have nominated them. Roddy comes to the HoH Room and tells Amy he understands her actions. Right after he leaves, Danielle comes to the HoH Room to commend Amy on a job well done. Outside, Roddy has joined Lisa and Chiara. He tells them that he thinks Danielle is after him, based on her body language after the nominations. THE VETO COMPETITION Despite the fact that Roddy is catching on to her, Danielle has a plan: to make Chiara and Roddy both think she's on their side and is gunning for the Veto Power, implying to both individually that she'll use it to save each of them. For the Veto Competition, the HouseGuests don swimsuits and swimming caps for a game called "Slippery Proposition." After getting oiled up, everybody takes a run down a Slip and Slide, with the Veto Power going to the HouseGuest who slides the farthest without going over the end line. During practice, Chiara worked the hardest to put herself into position to save Roddy, but when the Competition started, she went first and slid too far, just over the line. Amy slides next, going halfway down the chute, followed by Marcellas, who just barely beats Amy's mark. Roddy slides over the line on purpose and Chiara realizes it. Lisa slides only a third of the way down, then Jason who goes two-thirds of the way, then Danielle makes it three-quarters of the way down the track, giving her the lead. But Gerry becomes the first two-time Veto Competition winner by sliding just a few feet past Danielle's mark to win. With everyone unsure of what Gerry will do with the Veto, Chiara starts to panic about being nominated for eviction. She resents the fact that Amy, absent from the House for two weeks, is the one putting her up. Chiara is also upset that she wasn't able to compete in the last Head of Household Competition, which she feels robbed her of a chance to use her overall strategy in the game. Additionally, Chiara is rethinking her decision to evict Josh, believing that he would have voted to keep Tonya or Eric, both preferable choices to her. The animosity between Amy and Chiara starts to boil over as they each call the other "trash" to the other HouseGuests and say they don't have any respect for each other. Danielle realizes that Chiara is just nervous, and says, "If Eric had come back, she wouldn't have had any complaints." A SMORGASBORD OF STRATEGY Marcellas, aligned with Danielle, is becoming impatient with how hard Danielle pushes her agenda and how consistently she gets people to do her dirty work for her. Roddy notices that Danielle pushes the money aspect of the game a lot, and remarks to Chiara that Danielle's constant reference to wanting to win for her family is "the biggest con going" in the House. Roddy reminds them that while it's noble for Danielle to want to better her family's circumstances, that they're not in the "Make-a-Wish Foundation." Marcellas says that Danielle brings up wanting to win the money so often that he "almost doesn't want her to win." Lisa and Amy sit at the hot tub and discuss the upcoming eviction vote. Lisa says she's 50/50 on whom to vote for and wants Amy to help convince her. Lisa says she wants them both to go, but Amy rationalizes that Chiara should go first, because everyone is scared of Roddy and will vote to evict him down the line. Lisa concurs, and approaches Danielle, who also agrees to evict Chiara this week, then Roddy later on. In the HoH room, Danielle tells Amy that she's on board with the plan to vote out Chiara, and Amy renews her vow to evict Roddy once Chiara is gone. THE VETO MEETING Gerry opens the Veto Meeting by asking Roddy why he thinks Gerry should use the Veto to save him. Roddy doesn't make an argument and tells Gerry to leave things alone and let the House decide. Chiara also abstains from making a plea, saying she doesn't want to put Gerry through what she went through last week when she had the Veto Power. Gerry tells them that he's not using the Veto Power, simply because it's "better for me not to use it." After the quick meeting wraps up, Amy says she's thankful that Gerry was so "quick and efficient." But even after the Veto Meeting, things don't remain calm for long. Roddy tells Danielle that almost every HouseGuest except Jason has approached him and said that Danielle wants him out. As a result of this, Roddy also feels that Danielle has turned Jason against him so that he has "no support" in the House. Danielle denies it to Roddy's face, but in the Diary Room admits that he was right. Danielle tells Lisa about her conversation with Roddy, and says that Marcellas had to be the one who told Roddy, based on the words that he used. Danielle is convinced that Marcellas has "turned" and has to be evicted, but that first they have to distract Roddy from the fact that Lisa and Danielle are allies. Lisa suggests that they break their word to Amy and simply evict Roddy now that they have the chance.moreless
