Episode Summary

EDIT
HOT ROD PEELS OUT: NJ WRITER EVICTED 3-0 As the eviction draws near, Danielle wonders why the people nominated against Roddy turn themselves into "sacrificial lambs," allowing him to stay in the House. Marcellas tells Danielle that after listening to Roddy he feels hypnotized, ready to follow him wherever. With Roddy's persuasiveness an active topic in the house, Amy makes his bid to stay a little easier by putting on what Marcellas calls the "ugliest exhibition" he's seen in the House. It starts when Lisa, on the elliptical trainer, overhears Amy make an offer to Roddy for one of his beers. As Amy continues to drink, she babbles to the other HouseGuests, all of whom are visibly uncomfortable. Marcellas, now using the trainer himself, asks Roddy to go inside and get him a drink of water, leaving him alone on the patio with Amy. Marcellas tells Amy to stop drinking and go to bed. Amy goes into the House, but pulls Jason into the HoH room and asks him for some of his alcohol, then lies to Marcellas when he asks her what she's doing. In the Diary Room, Marcellas is beside himself, recounting his efforts to help her. Amy sits in the hammock, talking to Roddy about how Marcellas hurt her feelings, but she falls out of the hammock, laughing hysterically. Sitting at the dining room table with Danielle, Jason and Lisa, Marcellas cuts his ties to Amy, saying, "That was my girl until this week." Later, he tells Lisa what he thinks when he's with Amy lately: "Every word that comes out of your mouth, you're making me hate you." While Amy is self-destructing, Roddy takes the opportunity to gather Lisa's support. Lisa says she noticed that Roddy has been flirtatious with her the last few weeks, and she is considering giving Roddy a sympathy vote, if the others still want to evict him. Roddy senses this, saying that he knows Lisa votes with her heart. Danielle, watching him get closer to Lisa, is flabbergasted. "It's unbelievable," she says, "Every week he talks people into doing things for him." JULIE'S LIVE INTERVIEW With all the HouseGuests in the living room, Host Julie Chen pokes fun at Jason for his new haircut. She gets down to business, though, asking Marcellas about his intent during his harsh nomination speech to Amy, and whether he thinks Amy got it. Marcellas considers his words "a plea" to Amy to be more careful with everyone, since at this point in the game, everyone is fragile and stressed out. Amy tells Julie that she did get "most" of the message, but "it took a while." Talking to Danielle, Julie notes she's the only HouseGuest remaining who never won HoH. Danielle responds that with the next Competition coming soon, she wants HoH "so bad I can taste it." On a lighter note, Julie asks Lisa about the America's Choice shopping spree the HouseGuests enjoyed. Lisa says that the guys got the better end of the deal: since they're all the same size, they were able to come in and "just take everything." THE RETURN OF JOSH Looking back on his days in the House, Josh says his strategy was to "offend everybody," but realizes he probably "did it too well." Now out of the game, he is reunited with his love, Merritt, and calls that the "best part" of leaving the House. Merritt says it was tough to watch Josh in the house the last week of his stay when he was very emotional and vulnerable. She says it was hard not to let him know how much she cared about him when he was so distraught. Now reunited, they both know that they want to spend the rest of their lives together. They stop by a jeweler's to look at diamond rings, and Josh blanches at the prices. "If you're having a 90% off sale, you should call me," he jokes to the salesperson. Josh says that marriage is in their future, just as soon as he gets permission from Merritt's father.moreless
