|Howie says the odds for HOH next week aren't good. It will be 2-6.
H: I put a target on my back by winning.
BB says one hour until food comp.
H: Do I get to eat if I lose?
R: Do not give your food away except I want a twinkie. You'll be on the winning team, it doesn't matter.
H: Winning HOH made me the most miserable I've been. Things are supposed to be good at the top. They're worse
R: [Consider James up]. If James gets veto, we put up Maggie. But then he doesn't trust us anymore.
H: His credibility is destroyed. They all hate him. I wish you could have been here. It was not a ploy.
They see Janelle on spycam and summon her
H: We messed up because of the person coming back and we told the whole house what we're gonna do. Any way you look at it, I put a bigger target on me and Rachel's head.
R: The problem is this. I will go over scenarios. If we put James and Sarah up, the whole house loves it, he may not get off on veto and we vote him out, Cappy comes back, Sarah floats and she'll go over there. That's 7 vs 3. If we put James and Sarah up, James wins veto Sarah goes home, Cappy comes back, James hates us and teams up with Eric and Maggie's still here.
Now, let's put Maggie and April up, Ivette if someone gets the veto. Cappy comes back, they'll be pissed as hell at him and us, but they still have the raw hatred for James. If Eric comes back, there's no way he'll come after us. He goes after Eric.
J: Or if Michael does, Michael hates him.
R: Or if Kaysar comes back
J: Kaysar hates...
R: We tell Maggie we took a loss last week and taking another loss is unacceptable. We are better keeping James in the house. As much as Kaysar said get him out of here, I don't feel it's the right move. Unfortunately, he's going to go against the deal he made yesterday. Unfortunately I wasn't in here because I would have said 'no, no more talk.' To backdoor him is the only way to get rid of him, and we don't know when the opportunity to do it will come up.
J: If Maggie wins POV do we still get rid of James
R: No, not with the potential of James coming back. Even if they hate Sarah, don't you think they'll take her vote
R: Sorry, it's a numbers game.
H: I'm gonna work out, and you get them together and tell them our plan
R: You suck, Howie
J: Can I have another Frappaccino?
H: Drink them all. I'm only allowed to drink one of these.
J: Tell them you shouldn't have rushed me all out at once. You never told any of them they were safe
H: I shook hands with Maggie
J: If he wins HOH and puts you guys up I'll be livid.
H: He doesn't trust both sides and nobody trusts him
R: I would love to put him up but the thought of Eric coming back is too great. We'd be screwed without him.
