We get started tonight right after the Veto ceremony as we get yet another recap, followed by Bobby realizing that one of the Chop Shop is going home. A huge move by Brittnee and Johnny takes a lot of pressure off everyone else. Graig doesn't see himself as a bully and has taken it personally when Johnny calls him on it. He's not that big of a bully but he can be and he does tend to talk without thinking. Jordan doesn't think Graig's that much of a bully either, but he does think he's a bit slow. As Jordan points out, . . . on one side of the block you've got dumb, while on the other side you've got dumber, either way the house is going to get smarter as soon as one of them leaves.
Brittnee sees Graig moping about and tries to throw an olive branch to him but he ignores her and waves her off. I think he's forgotten it's just a game. Meanwhile, Bruno needs to run damage control to keep Graig from shooting off his mouth and making things worse than they already are. That could be a full time job. Bobby goes to Bruno while he's in the shower and brings up the fact that it makes more sense to keep Graig because he'll stay a target, but he doesn't want anyone else to realize that and send him home.
Over in the bedroom Zach wants to use Ashleigh to get to Bobby, but they need to keep their attraction under control to not upset Bobby and Willow. I'm not sure why that would matter but apparently there are some things we don't see in a mere hour or three every week.
Kevin heads to the hot tub and finds it snowing in the house and starts running around throwing snowballs at everyone. What a Canadian.
Time for Bobby to visit the HoH room to chat with Brittnee and mentions that she was Graig's target. He assures her that he never wants HoH again as it's just too much pressure. Yeah, right. I'll believe that when he steps down first in the next challenge. Brittnee and Sarah can see right through his "nice guy" act and they're not buying it.
Meanwhile, Ashleigh and Bruno want to keep Bobby in the house but their gameplay is actually better if they keep Graig. Guess Bobby shouldn't have pointed that out. Bruno then goes to Jordan and Zach about keeping Graig around as the house target and they tend to agree with Bruno's logic.
It's Day 19 and Zach and Jordan are lounging on the couch in the backyard discussing the night cams. Jordan points out that whatever Zach and Ashleigh did last night, it's been recorded. Zach tries to hide in the couch to avoid further embarrassment.
Back in the house, Kevin figures out how to control the alarm rather than have everyone keep coming to him to talk game. He's found that there are certain tiles that are pressure sensitive which set it off. He reveals his findings to Jordan and Pilar like its a secret gift.
Graig is still fighting to stay in the house and hopes he has the numbers. Bruno is pretty sure he has, based on the fact that Bruno's done most of the work. Now that Bruno has Graig under control he goes to run the same game on Bobby to ensure that no matter what happens his game is still good. Willow joins Bobby and Bruno at the hot tub to make sure everything is still solid in the Chop Shop and they assure her it's all good. Bobby's feeling pretty secure. Hope he enjoys that while it lasts because somebody's going home real soon.
At some point there was an explosion of t-shirts in the house to promote OxyClean. The houseguests need to find their colored shirts and hang them up on their rack in the backyard to win $1000 from OxyClean and an advantage in the next HoH competition. Houseguests are flying all over the place trying to find all 30 of their shirts. Godfrey feels he has them all and hits the buzzer first but he's short a shirt. The race is back on as everyone is banging into each other trying to beat Godfrey to the buzzer. Zach hits the buzzer next and he has all his shirts and $1000.
Everyone assembles in the livingroom as Bobby and Graig assume their position on the block and Bobby gets first shot at pleading his case. He admits that his being HoH was damaging to his game and he's not sure he'll even try to be HoH again if he's kept in the house but he'll keep an open mind. Graig says the experience has been epic and glorious until he cuts into Johnny about calling him a bully and hopes Johnny learns to overcome his insecurities.
Time to vote. Jordan votes to evict Graig, Pilar votes to evict Graig, Kevin votes to evict Graig, Sarah votes to evict Graig, . . . must be time for a commercial. Yep. Okay, we're back. Six more votes to go. Johnny votes to evict Graig, Ashleigh votes to evict Graig. It's official. Zach votes to evict Graig, Godfrey votes to evict Graig, Willow votes to evict Graig, and finally Bruno votes to evict Graig. Another unanimous vote. Ouch.
Graig gets up before Aryssa even finishes telling them who is being evicted, grabs his bag and races up the stairs and out. No long goodbyes there. Apparently he saved his hugs for Aryssa. She mentions that it looked like he gave up and he admits he knew he was done a few days back. He still defends his point that he's not a bully but he has no hard feelings towards Johnny. Aryssa points out he was the first big move inside the house and Graig says he respected Brittnee's move.
Aryssa lets him know he may be able to get back in the house but Graig's not even sure he wants to go back in. He may not now, but give it a few days. In just over a week one of the first five evicted houseguests will get a chance to get back into the house thanks to KFC. Why do I see a finger lickin' good challenge in our future?
Time for the next HoH competition to begin. Houseguests need to slide down a laundry chute into a pool of OxyClean bubbles, grab a facecloth with a letter on it that's hidden in the bubbles, then take the facecloth through the wringer to spell out "Fight Dirty Laundry" on their clothesline. As Zach won the OxyClean reward he also gets to start with one letter already on his line. Lucky Zach but it's not that big of an advantage.
And that's where we leave the houseguests. For those watching the after hours footage you already know who won, but try to keep it a secret for those of us with a little less time on our hands. Next week Canada gets a decision in the Power of Veto; either to make it a Forced Veto where the Veto must be played or a Double Veto where both nominees must be replaced. Sounds like a great way to seriously mess up somebody's game. Remember to check out my Amazing Race review on Friday and I'll see you all back here on Sunday.
