|MORNING 6:30 a.m.
First up this morning is Rachel. Most everyone else was up by 7:30 and told they were on inside lockdown. They are getting ready for the food competition. At 8:00 BB announced “Good morning HG’s you have one hour until the food competition.” Everyone is milling around waiting for the competition to start. April is really snippy this morning. James says "Grandma's grumpy" and she really got mad. In the meantime, Kaysar is in the DR.
Eric and Ivette sneak off to the SR. Ivette telling Eric that Kay said he will be watching people this week to decide who to nominate. Eric points out to her that nominations are today. Ivette says she thinks Kay will put her and James up, she says that Kay is f’ing around “why else would he tell James he wasn't going to put him up?” Eric: “because Kaysar is an idealist.”
Food Competition – WILL SPELL FOR FOOD!
HG’s are outside seated in chairs that are in two rows. There is a big wheel off to the side and Kaysar is at a big brown desk with a microphone on it.
Rules: The wheel is made up of pies that have P B & J on them. Each HG will uncover a food on a silver platter, and will be asked to spell that food in 60 seconds. If they answer correctly, they get to take a slice of the PB & J off the wheel to reveal food. If they don't think they can spell it correctly they can take a pass, but only one pass is aloud in the entire game. At the end, they will pick someone to spin the wheel. If it lands on FOOD, they will be eating like champions, if there should still be any PB & J’s on there, and it lands on one, guess what ALL the HG’s will be eating for the week?
Ivette is up first with the word avocado, she spelled it right. Next was Janelle and she spelled spaghetti wrong. James got the word h-a-m correct! Rachel got Broccoli, when she spelled it she forgot an ‘o’ but the ding for a correct answer went off, BB caught it and it appears she had to put the piece back on the wheel. Jennifer uncovers what looks like a blob of mayonnaise; she spells and gets it right. April is next with pepperoni (she says that is her dog’s name) and she spells it right. Beau got the word asparagus correct. Eric got marshmallow correct, then Maggie spelled papaya right. Howie was up next and spelled rhubarb wrong. Sarah passed on the word jalapeno, and then she was given cauliflower, only to spell it wrong. So they have 7 correct and 4 wrong.
The group decides that Kaysar should spin the wheel at the end…he does…it’s spinning…and he gets……PB & J, for the whole house for the whole week!!
Eric always the diplomat says “we win as a team, we lose as a team.” Then Howie chimes in “Scott Peterson is eating better than we are!” Most HG’s are very upset, Howie is trying to keep it light. Howie: “girls I will make it up to all of you sexually, if you want!”
Lockdown is over – Kitchen is fully stocked with PB & J and bread.
Rachel and Kaysar in HOH
Rachel is in HOH with Kaysar telling him “I will be ridiculed for the rest of my life for spelling broccoli wrong.” They start to talk about nominations and she says she won't tell him what to do, but she hopes he won't put her up. She says that the HG’s gossip, but she won’t talk about what is being said because she doesn't like to repeat things that are mostly second hand.
Rachel says she liked Mike and that there a lot of emotional people in the house. She says the house is divided, but she hopes she has been neutral. She says she would understand if he put her up because she put him up. She tells him that people will try to get him to do things their way, and that if anyone tells him he is safe it is BS, “everybody is in this game for themselves.” Rachel tells Kay that everyone in the house wants him to put up Janelle, that they don’t like her; he says “I know they all told me that I would be safe for a couple of weeks if I put her up.” Rachelle says she likes Janelle, she thinks she was being a b**** because some of the HG's were mean to her. Kaysar refers to everyone downstairs as his adversary. He says he initially trusted her and Maggie, but now he doesn’t trust Maggie for certain reasons. Kaysar says he is very observant and has already made up his mind who is going up and for her not to worry “I am not holding a grudge against you for putting me up.”
He tells her that if they can stay in the game long enough, maybe later the two of them can do some damage. Rachel says she felt so bad seeing Ashlea crying after her nomination. Kaysar says he knows that Janelle went to her (Rachelle) and told about Ivette and Beau being a pair. Then Kay told Rachel about Jenn and April and Rachel acted as though she was surprised to know they knew each other.
Kaysar says he made that same deal with Eric last week when he had HOH and he regrets it, so he will not make the same deals with everyone this week.
Sarah and Kaysar in HOH
Now Sarah is in the HOH with Kay. She says she is there to offer her opinions if he wants to hear them. Sarah explains to him that she was sorry he felt like an outsider, but that she didn’t like Mike and he hung around Mike. He said “I felt like an outsider but I never got any negative vibes from you, who do you think I should put up?” Sarah: “I am friends with a lot of people here. I feel like I don’t have a strategy. I m just playing it week by week, but I definitely know there are people here that have a strategy. Rachel and Maggie are the two people I'd be scared of, because its always one word answers when you are talking to them and they are really smart and obviously physically strong, but then what if one of them gets the veto.” She goes on hinting that Janelle should be put up, that she played games with Mike and now she is playing games with Howie. She says “WE aren’t sending you home next week, ‘we’ want Janelle to go next.” Kaysar cautions her that people could be saying things to stir it up, and they may not all be true.
Sarah is crying now, saying she doesn’t have anyone in the house she can trust. “I can't talk to anybody, and the when April said ‘you can't trust me’ it was like one of my sisters telling me don't talk to me, you can't trust me (she is crying). She says she is not stupid, that she knows there are connections in the house. Sarah says “Maybe Eric & Maggie know each other, maybe when they came in the house they were like, "Holy S***! We know each other!" She is indicating to Kaysar that she is on to some of the pairs in the house she says “I know you know what I am talking about”, but that she has no one, no one to trust. She says she is ‘drownding’ and grabbing onto air right now.
Kaysar asks her “what about James, do you trust him?” Sarah: “He was somebody I thought I could trust; now I am second guessing everybody.” She says she doesn’t get a good vibe from Rachel or Howie. She said sometimes Howie is funny, but when he isn’t Rachel still laughs at him. She thinks that Rachel is in more with the guys than the girls. Kaysar asked “is there a lot of support for Maggie in the house?” Sarah: “No, no, there is more support for Eric because he put himself on the line…” Kay: “Do you think he did that to be the hero?” Sarah: “Oh yah, but it helped him.”
BB: “Sarah please go to the DR.”
Maggie and Kaysar in HOH – AFTERNOON 12:00 p.m.
Maggie says that some of the HG’s are telling her that she is going on the block. She says to Kay “I would hope it is strategic and not personal.” Kaysar: “no way it is personal, people around here like you very much.” Maggie says: “Are you thinking about it?” Kaysar: “I am telling you what I am telling everyone else, I haven’t made up my mind yet.” Maggie says “Don't tell me anything you don't want to, that's not the point of me coming up here. I wish you could hear what people are saying right now, it’s getting really sh***y in here, no matter how you slice it you’re going to be on someone’s bad side. Whatever you do, whether I will be here the next week or not, it is not going to change my feelings about you or others that I like or don’t like in this house.” She goes on to tell him that she is analyzing the people that have told her he (Kay) said things about her…she doesn’t always trust knowledge that comes to her from another source. Kay says “by no means have I ever said anything bad about you nor do I feel I ever will, I don't see you as a threat and I respect you. Maggie: “thanks Kase” Kaysar” “don't worry about it; I still have a lot of people to talk to.”
Jennifer and Kaysar in HOH
After some small talk, Jenn asks Kay: “how are you feeling about all of this? Are you sure; are you unsure, do you even care about everybody else's opinion?” Kaysar: “I care but I don’t listen to people when they tell me who to hang out with, I do what I want to do. They thought I was naive because I was quiet, that's just the way I am. I'm making a decision based on what happened before today. I know people are kissing my a**, but I'm not dumb.” Jenn says “I'm sorry, if people are going to kiss my a** now that I have HOH, I would definitely nominate them.”
Kaysar says: “In the end, I know what's best for me. I've been thinking things through and I know exactly what's going on here.” Jen: “No one thinks you're stupid.” Kaysar: “You come of as nice and friendly, but you're here to play a game. You're smart; you know how to spell mayonnaise.” Jen: “I was scared at first, I psych myself out, and I don't have self-esteem.”
Kay: “You may not trust me, but I know you don't trust the others either. It takes a lot of patience to dig through the mess. You know what's going on, you knew you were going down with the ship and you got out of it. No hard feelings even though Michael was my friend. At the same time, what you did was wrong. You knew you were going down with Michael and you jumped ship. But I do like you. You're a smart player, in the next few weeks, it's up to you how to play the game, i you want me out, that’s fine.” Jen: “You may not believe me but you and Maggie are the best people in the house.” Kaysar: “I get mixed feelings about you but I'm going to trust my gut. I do think you're playing the game, but at the same time I think there's integrity in you. Remember, I want you to keep in mind who was working against you from the beginning. I was a little hurt about Michael but I'm going to let that go. You're not going up this week.”
James and Kaysar in HOH
Kaysar: “I don't want you to trust me because I'm in power, in a week I'm out of here. People want me to clip my own wings and put up Janelle, but I can't do that.” James: “I think everyone would keep their word and you would be safe [if you nominate Janelle], if I go, Rachel and Howie will walk through this thing. Eric can't compete, he's just a mouth.” Kay: “I'm in a difficult position.” James: “You put up Janelle you're safe for a couple of weeks.” Kaysar: “Damn this is so tough, dude. Listen, I made a promise to stick with Janelle and Howie because I had no one else.” James: “The game changes every week...” Kaysar: “If I drop Janelle, Rachel and Howie are coming after you.” James: “Whoever gets HOH next week will go after Howie. In order to get Eric we need to go after Maggie first. People are already getting tired of Eric. If Beau goes and Ivette is by herself she's going to realize that she's vulnerable and side with me, it will take a week or so to set up.” James says that once Ivette realizes that Maggie and Eric are a pair she will lose her mind.
Kaysar: says “so you're basically telling me the only way I can get along is to bump off Janelle.” James: “if you do that, you will earn yourself unparallel respect. I've got to get out of here; don’t take offense if I don't talk to you for a while. Do you need to pray on it? Your survival and your safety depends on your decision tonight.” Kay says he was going to nominate him and Maggie, James says that the strong players would push to keep Maggie. Kaysar says “then you win veto, take yourself off and I will put up Eric. That will appease Howie, Janelle and Rachel.” James, naturally, hates the idea. Kay tells James he does not want to lose him as an ally. James says “the only way to be safe is to not be on the block.”
Beau and Kaysar in HOH
Kaysar says to Beau “it doesn't seem like I have to decide today.” Beau: “no, it says on the sign Nominations Today.” Then Beau says “I think that if you decide to put up James & Sarah, since they are partners, you already have 5 votes to go against James and you can use their partnership as a reason.” They talk a short while longer and Kay expresses how badly he could use a nap.
AFTERNOON 1:00 p.m.
James is talking to Beau and Ivette saying “there's been talk about putting Maggie and I up, because Kaysar figured out what I already knew, that Maggie and Eric are together.” Ivette doesn't believe it; she thinks that BB just put a bunch of people in the house that have things in common. She also thinks Mike stirred up a bunch of s***. April comes out now and gets into the conversation. She says she hasn't made any alliances and James said “that is a crock of s***” April says she will swear on the bible. Ivette wants to know why Kaysar doesn't just put up Janelle and sell her down the river. James said “Kaysar has a deal with her and Howie.”
Ivette and James later were whispering. James said "Tell me, can you vote for me over Maggie?" Ivette: "Yes." James: "What about Beau?" Ivette says "I'll talk to him."
Now we are back to Kaysar and Sarah in the HOH. Sarah again saying she doesn’t have anyone in the house she can trust. Sarah is saying that Eric is going to win this whole thing because people are scared of him. She says everyone says “I made a promise to him…” Kaysar says how he watches people go follow Eric around, mimicking others, he says “Oh, Eric, okay whatever you want to do…” Kay says “he knows that time will come to an end eventually. I really don’t want people to be bullied into making decisions.” Sarah says he (Eric) plays the moral role, talking about his kids and his wife and his love of the firehouse, everything….She continues talking about all the speeches that Eric gives. Kay says Eric is just causing problems for himself.
Kaysar says “if this gets out, I will be upset, but someone has told me that you are not safe.” Sarah says that Ivette told her “if you are hearing rumors that you are not safe, don’t listen to them.” Kaysar says to Sarah, "there’s something weird going on, there is some sort of connection between you and James that I cannot figure out. If you guys don't know each other, then why would you be here?" Sarah whispers: "they asked me for a list of people, but none of those people are here." Sarah asks Kay "how long before we came here did you find out you were coming?" Kay says "I can't talk about that." Sarah: "where is James from Miami? I've been to Miami once." Kay says "are you guys related?" they laughed. Sarah is swearing to Kay that she doesn’t know anyone in there. Kay says "I believe you." Sarah claiming she doesn't understand why there are teams in the house. Sarah and Kay hugged, told each other how much they trust one another and she left.
Now Howie and Jan are in HOH with Kay...Kay says what he understands so far is that everyone is crapping their pants. Howie says everyone is scared to death. Howie says "well and they are probably promising you deals and protection..." Kaysar: "No, no one has, no deals have been offered." Howie seems shocked by this. Kaysar says they (the HG's) know that he doesn't do as he is told, he does his own thing. He says people are trying to kiss his a** and it is fine, but he made his decision far before today. He says things are happening just as he planned. He says people are coming to me and talking crap about each other and turning on one another. Howie says "Awesome! I told you." Kaysar: "this is only the beginning, it's been less than 24 hours and all hell is gonna break out soon."
In the meantime, Jenn is lying down with James in the bedroom, with her head in the crook of his arm. They are kind of holding hands and it looks very intimate. (No sign of Sarah).
James is outside with April and Beau. Beau says "who knows he could send me home, he could tell me one thing….” James tells them he is sure he is going up, April tells him not to think so negative. He says "well I am probably going up; it may not be to get to me, but to get to someone else..." April says "huh?? Get to somebody else?? Like a pawn?" James says "no, not a pawn, but for other reasons. I can't say much, I've already said too much today." Just then Sarah arrived outside looking upset. April asked her what was wrong…feeds switched!
Feeds are back to April, Sarah and Beau talking outside, James had been called to the DR. Okay mostly its April talking, Sarah & Beau listening. April says she's not making any deals and she has not made an alliance, “because you just don't know what's going to happen.” April goes on saying “James needs to chill, he doesn't know what's going to happen and he's so stressed.” April says if she goes up, she'll be pissed because she knows he put her up because of Michael. She says she'll tell him that she doesn't like that he put her up because of someone else and not for his own reasons. (On this end, this girl is clueless as to what is going on.)
Just after 3:00 p.m. the HOH pow-wow broke up. LOL, Howie goes to the kitchen and says "everyone sit down, I will cook dinner. We have our choice of jelly, peanut butter, or jelly on bread." April says her heart flutters at times, and when it stops she is really tired. Howie says how often does that happen? Like 3 times a month? April says "yes, sometimes, or I could go 5 months without it happening." Howie says "it's like me with J'ing off, it's random." Howie goes off to the bathroom and says “If anyone is looking for me, I am going to use the main bathroom for anywhere from 2 minutes to an hour.”
Kaysar was in the main bedroom and Ivette is being very friendly with him and she says “not only did you earn that meat (he received meat that is kosher for his HOH) but you've been watching everyone else eat meat for the last 3 weeks when you didn’t have the (kosher) meat.” Eric is telling Kaysar to eat and enjoy his food. Kaysar says "I will but, I have no rice or anything, it's been taken away, so I have to eat like a drumstick by itself with water.” Eric says if you really won't enjoy it; ask them if you can freeze it."
Outside Ivette apologizes to Beau for bringing him in. Beau says “it's fine, it's a game. It's crazy that you don’t know who to trust though.” Ivette says Kay knows they are a big group and he's trying to break it up, do some damage.
James was telling Ivette that everyone in the house told Kay to put him (James) up. Ivette says she swears that she told Kaysar to put up her with Janelle. James says he needs reassurance that they won’t vote him out). Ivette says “absolutely.” Beau says “it’s a game and it sucks.” Eric says “I never told him to put you up.” Eric stresses to James that Kaysar hasn’t asked Eric for his opinion. HG’s are now on lockdown, and Kaysar is inside doing the nomination preparation.
