|MORNING 7:30 a.m.
Rachel of course was the first one up this morning. She did her usual work out then headed to the kitchen. She was irritated this morning, first because the sink counter was piled with dishes to be put away and then because they were out of almost everything for breakfast; there was no skim milk, no more yogurt or eggs, no more oranges. She made requests for them then 3 different trips to the SR all the while cursing the “f’in idiots, they don’t tell them (BB) when they use the last of something.” Then she realizes they are out of cream so she has to ask BB again for another item. Finally Rachel is done in the kitchen and taking a shower. No sight of any other HG’s awake and it’s almost 9:30!
Howie got up to use the bathroom then looked outside and saw Rachel. He tells Rachel that he thinks that James struck a deal with Maggie to possibly back door one of them. Rachel says she thinks Maggie might put up Janelle. They say that James will have no choice but to go after Maggie and her team. Howie says "the only way to get rid of James is to back door him." Rachel asked Howie why he is up so early. He said he had to use the bathroom, but that he's very stressed out too. Howie told Rachel that he tried to wake her up last night but she was out. They talk about Sarah saying she can't hide her emotions well, that she was acting strange last night. They say they need to pretend that everything is okay with James and Sarah and keep playing it up that Maggie is on the top of their list to get out.
Howie went inside for a minute them came back out and told Rachel that BB announced the veto ceremony was in 2 hours. Rachel asked him “so is anybody up?” Howie: “no,” Rachel: “I didn't think so, that's because 2 hours around here is really 3 hours.” Howie went back to sleep for another hour and Rachel is still the only one up now at 10:30.
Finally everyone is up after BB yelled at Beau for singing and then they were very mad when they said “It is time to get up for the day!!”
Kay and Maggie are at the dining room table. Maggie says she has to put someone up against him today, she asks who he thinks it should be. Kaysar says it may as well be Janelle, that way James won’t get suspicious. Kaysar says “I already talked to Janelle and she knows it will probably be her, plus I told my side to make sure and vote me out.” Kay says the reason he was making bad decisions was because he was being stabbed in the back by James. He says to Maggie “make sure he pays for that.” Maggie got up from the table and subtly nodded her head.
Maggie and Ivette are in the bathroom and Maggie says to her that if they are going to get rid of James the two teams need to work together. She says if they are not careful James is going to win this game. Ivette is in the shower now and she was telling Maggie that April told her (Ivette) that she is annoying because she talks too much. Maggie was surprised and said "are you sure she's not joking?" Ivette said "no".
BB just said: "HG’s, did you know that more than 1500 batteries will be used this summer to power your wireless microphones?" Jen: "BB, did you know the HG's don't give a s***?"
Kaysar, Howie and Beau are outside and Kaysar says to Howie that he has only seen Howie put on a shirt three times since they got here. Howie says “I wore them all by the third day.” Kaysar asks him how he can go away for the summer and only bring 3 shirts. Howie responds "it's 100 degrees in the shade!"
Ouside the talk turned to the Summer of Secrets. They are sure that the pairs winning 1M will not be the only twist because it only lasted 3 weeks before it was exposed. Maggie is outside and she says that we the public probably didn't know about the pairs until they were told by Julie. Maggie says “it would not have been any fun for the viewers if they had told them right away.” She goes on to say that that BB told them not to tell their families because they were not going to announce it right away. She says that she and Eric had to meet in secret places.
Kaysar is now talking to April, Jenn and Maggie and in this conversation they are all on the same page as far as wanting James out. Kaysar says after James they should go for Sarah. Jenn asked Kay if Sarah would put her and April up, and Kay says “yes, Sarah quit her job for this.” He eludes that her winning is the same as James winning. April says she notices how the S6 are still very friendly with James and Kaysar says “it is so James doesn’t catch on to what’s going down.”
Maggie says to Kaysar “I want you to go along with me in making James think I am not an ER nurse. Kay says that he and James deploy the same methods in their strategies but that Kay does it without hurting anyone’s feelings. At this point April starts to talk about James, after nominations how he brought on the fake tears and was asking them to take care of Sarah if he left. Maggie says “there is nothing we can do, he is off the block this week and it sucks.”
Kaysar keeps on talking about James and Sarah both. Kaysar says that James is good at lying and keeping a straight face. (FYI, Jenn has been present for all of this talk and has not said a word.)
In the meantime, James and Janelle are in the GR. Janelle is under the covers in one bed and James is sitting on the other bed. He says he is glad he did well in the veto competition. He said he went into attack mode for the game. Sarah is just out of the DR and heads to the GR; she walks in and says “guess what? They said we're not using the veto this week.” Then she laughs…
Everyone heads outside for lockdown, Sarah, however, is called back into the DR.
1:00 p.m. POV Ceremony
Janelle has been put on the block next to Kaysar. Everyone is back inside and split between the GR and the HOH, you can probably figure out who is where. In the HOH, Ivette is saying "strap a bomb on you and take one for the team. “She says this in reference to Janelle going up (willingly) so Kaysar can stay in the house. Maggie says "don't you think Howie and Rachel would rather keep Kaysar?" Maggie is begging them not to make any revenge comments to James; she doesn't want him catching on that they have been talking to Kaysar.
Maggie says "I just can't believe Sarah's speech." April wants to ask Sarah "How did you even know who was being put up?" (In place of James) Beau says "we didn't even know." Maggie says "the balls of her to make a speech regarding a specific person being put up. She felt since she knew who was going up, she would show the entire group, she just doesn't think." Maggie turned on the spy screen and they see Rachel and Ivette says "Rachel is on my every last a** hair." Then Ivette repeats that comment about Rachel and Maggie says “I heard you the first time.” Maggie started to say how nervous Rachel was, and then BB called lockdown “everyone outside.”
2:00 p.m. Outside on Lockdown
Beau is telling Ivette that Janelle is going to get Sarah a job and that she is going to move to Miami. Ivette: "who told you that?" Beau says "April, ridiculous." Ivette switches to game talk and says "what do we do? At some point one of us has to win HOH, it's not even funny any more." Beau says "this week is crucial for us. We can't get nervous or flustered." Ivette "I don’t believe anyone on that side Beau" Beau says: “that’s because you don’t like Kaysar. I talked to him for hours on end and I believe him. I don’t trust Janelle though.” Ivette whines “ever since Cappy’s gone I don’t even want to be here”.
After lockdown is over, Maggie is whispering to Jenn and April by the pool. Maggie told April she needed to stop talking to Kaysar, or if she does talk to him then someone else should be there because she reveals too much information. After more talk, Maggie asked April if it made her mad that she just said that to her and April said “not at all.”
Maggie says that Kaysar came up to her and said “why did you guys allow April to come and talk to me about 'that'." She says "he picks up on everything." Maggie says she told him "we didn't really discuss it before hand; April came to you by herself because you have this honesty thing." April says to Maggie "that's where you messed up, because I talked to you then went back to Kaysar again." Maggie says "I know that's why I can't talk to him anymore. It's too hard to cover each other’s tracks." April whispers "I don't understand why Ivette doesn't like me anymore, she just tolerates me." Maggie says "no, I don't see it like that." April: "is she just mad that Eric isn't here?" Jenn says something that becomes in-audible and April's response is "she likes you, but not that much. She'd vote your a** off in a heart beat."
Kaysar and Janelle are now in the BR. Janelle says "Kaysar sit down, let's talk." Kaysar: "James wants to save his own a** no matter what, so once 'they' get HOH, he (James) will try and sell you guys out. But now that the others know that we are on the same page, they will want him gone no matter what. So you keep him around and if he gets HOH he will get rid of one of 'them'." Kaysar thinking says "but, if you don't get rid of him right away, the other side will get pissed and the deal may be off." Janelle says "so, I can't keep him around."
Kaysar says to Janelle "If he or Sarah gets HOH, just play it cool. Once Sarah and James are gone it's three against five." But he thinks the 3 of them will be stronger than the 5 on their team. They talk about how Ivette and James were so lovey-dovey after the nominations. Kaysar tells Janelle not to worry that if the other side gets HOH they will aim to get James out. Then he says after they get James out Sarah will be easy because she is worthless without James in the house. Kay says he 'thinks' that it would be better if the other team won HOH next, hinting that Janelle might consider throwing it. That way the other team will have one less player to compete for HOH the following week. Janelle says that is risky...then we get FISH.
