Episode Summary

EDIT
Amy and Lisa take their nominations well. Lisa has a "strong feeling" she's headed for the Final Two, but Jason tells Danielle he might want to keep Amy around, thinking that the other HouseGuests would be less likely to give her the money at the end. Still unaware of Jason's alliance with Danielle, Amy thinks he is making his own decisions. Danielle wants Jason to make the call between Lisa and Amy, but still wants him to come to her so they can discuss it. While gazing at the Photo Wall, each of the remaining Houseguests get pensive and nostalgic. Lisa is reminded of how much she misses Eric, while Danielle is reminded of her strategy entering the game: Protect those who will protect you. In a private moment, Jason tells Danielle that his family will be proud of him for their alliance, and that his goal was to find someone in the House who was his opposite to ally with. Danielle says in the Diary Room that the secret of their success was keeping their bond quiet, which allowed them to gather information from all the different corners of the House, then compare notes. Danielle admits that she "lied and stabbed friends in the back," but adds that she remained loyal to the two people who mattered most: herself and Jason. Later, she sits with Jason, who signals his intention to evict Amy, but leaves open the possibility of changing his mind during the week. Amy points out to Jason that because they both the Final Four, the South has two people going the distance and has "represented" well. With their strong showing in mind, Jason and Amy share the Southern BBQ (won during the last Food Competition with Lisa and Danielle. Danielle is thrilled, noting that a lot of what they're eating is "soul food," but Lisa is less enthusiastic. She marvels at Amy and Danielle's hands-on approach to eating ribs and chicken as she tries to use her knife and fork. Amy declares there's "no graceful way" to eat good barbecue, and Danielle adds that if you're using a knife and fork to eat barbecue, "there's a problem." Jason, the only man in the House, has taken up flirting with Lisa. He tells her she looks beautiful when she wakes up in the morning. Danielle makes fun of him for his word choice, but Jason says he'd "be lying if [he] didn't say she was beautiful. Despite enjoying himself, Jason knows that he can't have a relationship with Lisa. "You saw Eric," he says, "He could smush my head with his bicep." The Houseguests, dressed in the recommended beach attire, enter the backyard to find it drastically changed. There are palm trees, surfboards, tiki idols and, in the center of everything, a hydraulic surfboard. Their Competition is to ride the surfboard for two rounds, and the two Houseguests with the longest combined time win a cruise on the Pacific Ocean. Lisa says that boats make her nervous, so she doesn't compete wholeheartedly, having a cumulative time of 1:04. Danielle says she was nervous for the second round after a strong showing in Round One, but still ends up with 1:43 combined. Jason, from Mobile, Alabama, says he's never surfed despite people telling him he looks like a "surfer dude," ends up with a time of 1:56. Amy, whose closest body of water is the Mississippi River, scores a combined 2:01. After enjoying their barbecue, the Southerners win the sailing trip. Amy and Jason are blindfolded and pull themselves along a guide rope through the doors of the BIG BROTHER House and into a waiting limousine. They remain blindfolded until they arrive at a marina and board the sailboat. Out on the open sea, Jason says he realizes "how small the world is inside the House." Amy enjoys seeing seals resting on a buoy, then gets queasy because of the choppy water. She gets sick over the side of the boat, but Jason is there to hold her hair and give her a napkin afterwards. Amy is "mortified," but admits she feels better afterwards. They enjoy a beautiful sunset over the Pacific Ocean before returning to the dock. The game goes on for Lisa and Danielle, left behind. They discuss the game and how close they are to the finals. Lisa worries about who'll vote for her in the end, and wonders if she's ever made Danielle mad. Danielle struts around, doing an exaggerated impersonation of Amy and her flirtatious behavior. After the sun sets and she realizes Jason and Amy will be home soon, Danielle tries to lock the back door so they can't get back in. When Jason and Amy return, they're surprised to find Lisa and Danielle already in bed. After their trip outside, Amy and Jason find themselves in the midst of a pressing House concern: the lizards. Amy and Danielle both dislike the lizards intently, while Jason has assumed the mantle of "dragon advocate" since the departures of Eric and Gerry. Lisa says she has a "love-hate" relationship with the lizards, especially since she's noticed that they've gotten more hostile since they've grown. Amy, however, is the most anti-lizard HouseGuest, saying that the only way she'd touch one of them is if she was "going to fry it in a pan." The HouseGuests are excited when they find out that the new America's Choice question will give one of them an opportunity to have an Internet chat with their fans. Danielle doesn't think she'll win it, but Lisa treasures the chance to make a "connection with the outside world." Before the winner is revealed, BIG BROTHER gives each HouseGuest a printed screen shot from one of the fan-made websites that have sprung up in their honor. Danielle is amused at the lesbian audience she's attracting, and Amy is amazed that people have adopted her sayings, which they call "Amy-isms," into their speech patterns. Lisa wins the America's Choice question and enters the HoH room for her online chat, feeling "overwhelmed." Lisa tells her fans that she considers Danielle to be a "beautiful person," but ultimately "threatening" when it comes to the game. She adds that her favorite House memory was when Eric spelled out "Hi" in her peanut butter. After she tells another fan that she can't wait to see Eric outside the House, Eric himself logs on and asks Lisa if he can be there to greet her when she leaves the House. Lisa excitedly says yes and confirms that she still wants to go with him to San Francisco. In closing, she thanks the fans for giving her the chance to talk to them, and then runs outside, where she tells the others all about her chat. Everyone is happy for her, especially about the news regarding Eric.moreless
