Nick talks to Jen in the bathroom and is soon joined by Kail and Zach. They are comforting her. Kail tells Jen not to worry, they are the toughest girls in the house.
Amber and Dustin have a whisperfest. Amber suggests the idea of backdooring Nick. Dustin enters the house and announces that it is time for PoV competition. Dustin picks Dani, Jen picks Jameka, Kail picks Jess. Jameka says in a DR that she feels Jen picking her ball is God's way of telling her she should play her best for Jen. Jameka tells Kail that she feels she has to play hard for Jen. CBS chooses to prelude this discussion with organ music. Jen enters the bathroom to use mouthwash, Jameka asks to speak to her, she wants Jameka to wait and she says no need, she doesn't need Jen to talk. She informs Jen she intends to play hard for her and remove her if she wins. Jameka then informs the rest of the house of her decision.
ED thinks this is a completely ridiculous idea. Jameka feels it is already predetermined who is going to win the game. Jameka says in the DR that ED is an atheist and she is not going to compromise herself for him. ED says in the DR that he thinks God has better things to do than worry about her ping pong ball in the BB game. He believes this is Jameka's will, not God's.
Veto competition -
Cheesy french accents and berets abound, they take a trip to the BB art gallery, just inside the house. Wine and cheese was offered for the gallery guests. Featured artist today is Vincent Van Veto. They all start with 1000 BB bucks.
Puzzle Answers: head of household, memory wall, diary room, power of veto - Dani out on answering just veto
Kail in the lead. Spending portion - 750 bucks for a trip to Barbados - Dustin buys the trip, he looks happy and says in the DR that he and his gf get to go to Barbados, the rest looked confused and pissed. Back to puzzles - nominee, alliance, Jameka takes the lead, julie chen, chopping block. Spending portion again - 1500 bb bucks for 5000 dollars, Dustin took the money and everyone is pissed Amber is crying in the DR, she was really crying hard about Dustin's greed and the fact Jameka could have taken the money. Jameka in the lead last puzzle - Power is up for grabs - Jen guesses incorrectly - Safety
Smart move on her part, quick answer means either she gets it right and wins or she gets it wrong and Jameka wins. Either way she is safe.
Jameka says in DR she thinks Jen through the last question because she knew Jameka would use the PoV on her. Jameka regrets telling Jen she would use the PoV to save her.
ED confronts Dustin about his taking prizes instead of trying harder for the veto. ED says it was a selfish move. Dustin admits in DR is was selfish and now everybody hates him. Given Dustin told Kail that neither she or Jen were his targets this week, I really don't understand what all the tears and fuss is about. They can still get out Zach or Nick. Jameka talks it over with Amber. Jameka says God is Gangsta, putting things out that to trip you up and such. Amber cries.
Dani is pissed about Dustin, Eric talks with Dustin and Dustin tells him that he only has 2700 dollars at home in the bank. Eric thinks Dustin made a complete fool of himself. ED calls out Jen for throwing the last question and putting the PoV on Jameka's shoulders. Jen claims she was just trying, ED claims she did it to screw everyone else. Dani tells ED to stop because he is upsetting Jameka.
AP task - Start the catch phrase "I'd do that for a dollar". He starts by saying he would crawl into the pillow case .... he would do that for a dollar. He tells Dick he has an idea. He is tired of Amber and her expressions, so he is going to say "I'd do that for a dollar" to show her what its like everyone else in the house. ED says he is on board. He jumps into the pool fully clothed. They all think he is a little cracked.
The LNC meets in the HoH. Dustin states since Jameka is going to use the PoV to remove Jen, he doesn't want to argue that, so moving on from there who do they nom, Nick or Zach. It's a majority rules that it should be Nick. Dani is the one exception. Dani starts to argue the point about Jen, thus making Jameka feel badly. Dani ends up walking out. Jess says it is not their job to deal with Dani's personal life and it is better for her and them to have Nick gone now. Dani cries in the DR about the possibility of Nick leaving.
Jameka now says if up to her, Zach would be gone. But the majority still feels it should be Nick. Jameka does the obligatory think walk in front of the memory wall before calling the PoV meeting to order. Nick is not at all worried, he feels certain that Zach is going up and going home. Kail believes the same thing. Jameka finally calls them all in for the PoV ceremony. Jameka gives both Jen and Kail to chance to say why she should use the PoV on them. Jameka uses the PoV and remove Jen from the block, and tells Dustin he has to choose a replacement nom. Dustin chooses Nick. Nick looks surprised and annoyed. Dani cries in the DR some more about Nick leaving, but personally I think it's just really frustrating for her. Dustin wants to cut some of those ties that are forming. Kail is confused. Nick thinks he is just a threat. Jen is upset with Dustin for nom Nick, she thinks Dustin is just a turd.
