Episode Summary

EDIT
STARTING TO SWEAT? Lisa adapts well to the power, privilege and influence that being Head of Household provides. She enjoys the gifts, special foods and pictures of her cat, but wishes she could have delayed her ascent to power until she was comfortable enough to share the bed with somebody. The other HouseGuests, wary of her newfound control over the game, begin to kiss up. Amy and Gerry help her move her clothes into the HoH room, and Josh notices that Eric is "working it" trying to get closer to Lisa. Even though Lisa won the HoH vote, not everyone voted for her against Lori: Roddy tells Lori that he and Jason voted for her. Lori thinks Lisa is in a tough spot since there's been "so much harmony" in the House so far, and that any nominee will be OK with her, adding, "So long as it's not me." Despite his growing paranoia about being nominated, Amy assures Josh he's safe because he's the "comic relief" in the House. "You haven't even seen me naked yet," he replies. Marcellas hasn't yet mentioned his homosexuality to the others; he "thinks people know, but are too afraid to ask." Danielle and Tonya speculate, and finally decide they believe he's gay. Marcellas is afraid of the reaction he might get if he comes out, saying he's "waiting for the other shoe to drop." While Marcellas worries about his place in the House, Gerry is getting "real comfortable as Dad" to everyone, and they're getting comfortable with him. When he scolds them, mockingly, as they throw things around the kitchen, Jason calls him a "father figure." HOT TUB ACTION The first Luxury Competition gives the HouseGuests a chance at unlocking the hot tub, something they all want to win. "We all want full access to everything," Eric remarks. In order to win, three teams of four (two men, two women) have to enter a pool of slime, switch bathing suits with members of the opposite sex and race to the finish line in their new outfits. All 12 have to complete this task in under six minutes. Everybody gets into the spirit of the event, and as the burly Gerry crosses the finish line carrying a load of slime in his tiny bikini, the first Luxury Competition is a success. Eric says, "We wanted it bad and we proved it," but confesses he'll probably have nightmares from the sight of Gerry in his bathing suit. TORMENT, SECRETS AND HIDDEN AGENDAS As the mothers in the House, Tonya, Danielle and Lori bond over discussions about their children. Marcellas is tired of hearing them talk, particularly Tonya, saying all she talks about are her kids and her divorce. He says he's "tormented" by Tonya's hair, the pet lizards and "how shiny I am because of this L.A. humidity." The stylist in him wants Tonya and Lori to be evicted because of the clothes they wear.moreless
