We start tonight immediately following the PoV ceremony and Kevin is so glad he heard what he heard. Brittnee feels fairly safe being next to Sindy on the block. Sindy on the other hand is doing her best to stay level headed and keep the tears in. Nobody is really surprised that she's back up there, but Brittnee stays by her side and commiserates with her.
Sindy with an S is still annoying and I won't miss her when she's gone. That said, things change quickly in the house so she could still be there at the end of the episode. Brittnee goes to plead her case with Sarah who isn't entirely sold but will ride their alliance as long as it suits her. I don't think Sarah is overly keen on Sindy either. Meanwhile, Ashleigh is falling for Zach as he cuddles the stuffed dog Rocky.
Sindy points out to Sarah that if she's gone who becomes the next target? As long as she stays she stays a target. Bruno and Graig decide to spread a rumor to separate Brittnee and Naeha, so Bruno lets Graig run with it. Their goal is to get rid of Sindy this week and Naeha next week and the more the girls distrust each other the better.
Naeha finds out about the rumour and she's pissed. She intends to get rid of Graig as soon as possible but that's not going to be easy if the girls start losing numbers. I guess they should have checked the washroom in the HoH bedroom before talking game. They certainly check the rooms now but it's a little too late.
For some reason everyone is questioning how Godfrey picks up his girls. Nothing like putting the guy on the spot. Peekaboo? Really? Graig's revelation on his routine is just a little creepier. While Sindy campaigns hard, Brittnee tries a lighter touch.
Jordan suggests that Zach work that showmance with Ashleigh but he says it's not the right time yet. They both agree they need to focus on the endgame and Jordan suggests every time Zach gets butterflies for Ashleigh that he just pictures Jordan's face and beard to kill the moment.
It's Johnny's birthday and he's super happy curled up in bed for the night with Kevin, until Kevin leaves him to cuddle with Pilar. I can't say I blame Kevin but that's kinda cold. With everyone else snuggled in bed the only two awake in the house are Sindy and Jordan. Paying no attention to his own advice he ends up playing kissy-face with Sindy in the hallway. Check that off the bucket list.
April Fools and the houseguests are told they've damaged more stuff than any other group of houseguests, including a camera. As punishment, all their food has been removed except for slop and that there's no more hot water. Whoever damaged the camera can confess in the Diary room, but nobody is racing to do so . . . which makes sense since nobody did anything. Now everyone is pissed at everyone else and they start blaming each other . . . especially when Godfrey blames Sindy for being a fake and sabotaging the house.
We're halfway through the show and it's time to reveal Big Brother's prank about the broken camera, but nobody bothers to apologize . . . least of all Godfrey. Time for the Eviction ceremony. Brittnee is first up to plead her case and does a good job, followed by Sindy who was actually less vindictive than I thought she'd be. Time for the votes.
The first five houseguests are unanimous in their decision but it could still go either way. Or not. By unanimous vote Sindy is sent packing to join Risha in seclusion. She gets the usual hugs and cuddles and there are a few tears, but not much as she exits the house and meets Aryssa. Aryssa points out that a unanimous vote has to hurt and asks if she has any regrets. Sindy says she probably should have been a little quieter in the house. Aryssa clues her in that there may be a way for her to return to the house before sending her off.
Back in the house houseguests watch the Big Brother Zoo video on the television. Why? There's always a reason for everything in the Big Brother house. At 2:27am they're awakened to watch the video again. Then at 4:21, then at 5:25, then . . . Finally it's time to hit the back yard for the HoH competition.
It's a memory quiz with true or false answers based on the video. Random pairs keep going until there's only one left standing. Godfrey wins the first match (but I missed who against, I think Pilar). Then it's Naeha vs Johnny and Naeha wins. Then Godfrey vs Graig, Graig loses. Naeha vs Sarah, Naeha wins. Godfrey vs Bruno, Bruno loses. Naeha vs Willow, Naeha wins. Godfrey vs Ashleigh, Ashleigh wins. Kevin vs Jordan, Kevin wins. Naeha vs Ashleigh, Ashleigh wins. Kevin vs Zach, Kevin wins. Ashleigh vs Brittnee, Ashleigh wins. Final question Kevin vs Ashleigh, and Ashleigh loses.
Kevin wins HoH, which is even more sweet after his last week, and next episode will include an instant eviction that the houseguests know nothing about. That kinda sucks for Kevin as it usually shortens the HoH term. However, now that Sindy is gone I'm almost looking forward to it. In the meantime, stay tuned for the main event as our Amazing Race reviews return on Friday. See you here.
