We get a quick recap of the week with Maddy going up against Tim and she almost managed to turn everything around. However, in the end it was Maddy who went to the jury house and unfortunately she'll still be missing Ramsey because by self-evicting he won't be a member of the jury. After Maddy's eviction recap we role back in time to find out that Phil's target was Tim and when nobody was voting that way he was acting like an angry junior high schooler.
Now we're back at the HoH competition as Arisa explains the rules and everyone is more excited to get time with their loved one than they are of winning the HoH. It looks like Nick and Phil's mom is hosting the competition, even though they can't win. Tim's not sure he trusts his dad with the responsibility of winning the HoH, but it's kinda out of his hands. Meanwhile Cassandra figures her dad, the science teacher, is smart enough to win but this competition isn't really based on smarts.
During the competition the competitors are given a choice . . . either put the whole house on slop or get blasted with slop and all the loved ones choose to be blasted. Then the loved ones get to choose to put the house on cold water or get sprayed with cold water and they thought about that for a moment but again chose to be blasted. The upside of which it washed off a lot of the slop.
The rocks keep falling and they've got to be close, but nobody wants to jump the gun just yet. Said, Cassandra's father, wants to wait until others get their hand near the buzzer and then buzz in ahead of them because he figures that the first one to buzz in will win the HoH. It's possible, especially if they all go over, but it's a bit of a risk.
They've been at it for over an hour and twenty minutes when Said buzzes in. Jared's sister, Randall, figures he's early but then Phil buzzes, followed by Zoe and then Randall. Courtney buzzes in and then Freddy decides he may as well. The winner, with 1,020 rocks is . . . Said. Well done dad. That makes Cassandra the new Head of Household.
Cassandra races out to her dad and gives him a big tear filled hug. She's pretty proud of her dad. He then gets to meet the rest of the house guests and then Nick and Phil get some time with their mom, and lots of tears. Then Courtney comes out for Kelsey, Randall comes out for Jared and Tim's dad crosses over forTim. Freddy comes out for Nikki and Joel's mom wraps it up for Joel. After that all the loved ones leave and the house guests return to the house.
It was nice of Big Brother to allow everyone time with their loved ones, no matter how brief. For a moment everyone was out of the game but then it was time to head back in and see Cassandra's HoH room. There was a lot of unnecessary screaming,to the point that even Tim had to tell them to stop. Cassandra reads her letter from her family and it's just a little extra motivation. I'm a little worried having Princess Cassandra in charge of the house but it's a better choice than Nikki
The brothers are a lot more concerned now that Cassandra is HoH, but while they're stressing Cassandra is chatting with her "besties" Tim and Joel. Tim pitches the idea of having Cassandra put up Nikki and the brothers as the only two who have never been on the block and it's a great reason to do so as long as it betters Cassandra's game. Which, when you think about it, probably works well for her and doesn't rock the house, but would you want to put Nikki on the block?
While Tim is getting the dinner orders, Cassandra calls the house guests together for the opportunity to close down the HaveNot room for the season. To do so, Nikki and Joel must get married in the little HaveNot Chapel. Everyone gets into their wedding best and Tim tries to give Joel kissing advice but tells him it looks more like he's breast-feeding. Nice wedding dress on Nikki but what happens if it's a real priest? Not to worry, they're being married by Marsha the Moose.
Tim walks Nikki "down the aisle" to the HaveNot room and then we get to it to join sweet Joel and the crazy lady in matrimony. Their vows were pretty silly and included a "no touching" line from Nikki. They repeat their vows to be married until one of them is sent to jury and then Joel goes in for the sloppy kiss. Time to celebrate with champagne and cake, while Joel contemplates the private after party with Nikki., . . . wink, wink.
Now that Nikki is married Cassandra goes to her to talk about putting her up as a pawn. Apparently Nikki was expecting it but what she really doesn't want is the extra speeches and such that go along with being on the block. How on earth did she manage three separate seasons of the U.K. Edition? On her way out of the HoH room Nikki quietly begs Big Brother for vodka instead of champagne. That's not much for a new bride to ask for, is it.
Nikki is actually pretty proud that she's gotten as far as she has since she expected to be out after the first week. Nikki goes to Joel to tell him that she's going up as a pawn and to discuss her speech but he tells her to worry about that only if it happens. While they discuss her plight, Cassandra is chatting with Kelsey who's pitching the idea of putting Tim next to Nikki. That's not her worst idea and Cassandra's end goal is to get to the final two with Joel over anyone else so she goes to him next. Theirs is an alliance that has flown completely under the radar of all the other house guests so it would be interesting to see them at the end.
Time for the brothers to check in with Cassandra. They know they've done a few things behind her back but they also know they could be her target. Phil tosses Jared under the bus rather than Tim, but while they're up with the HoH Kelsey is starting to panic. To keep things under control Jared wanders up to the HoH room with Kelsey to find the brothers and Tim hanging out. The brothers leave and Cassandra asks how he'd feel going up, winning the PoV and backdooring in the brothers. Suffice to say, he'd rather not take that risk.
When Jared leaves he goes to Phil and says he knows that Phil tossed him under the bus but when Phil tries to deny it Jared says it's fine. It's just a game and he's okay with whatever but he wants both of them to focus on getting Nikki out this week regardless of which one of them is sitting next to her. It's a good plan and keeps both Jared and the brothers in the house, unless Nikki wins the PoV. Okay, stop laughing, it could happen.
Finally it's time for the nominations and Cassandra and her tiara enter the High Roller room. She shortlists Nick/Phil because they're wishy-washy and she doesn't trust them, Nikki because she's the perfect pawn, Jared because he is a huge threat, and Tim because he's the biggest social threat. She locks in her choices and goes out to reveal.
Cassandra's first nomination is . . . Nikki who everyone knows is a pawn, and secondly she nominates Nick & Phil. She nominated Nikki so that Nikki can get the full Big Brother Canada experience, and she nominated the brothers because they're just big likeable guys. Oh yeah, and she doesn't trust themas far as she can throw them. Even Nikki doesn't think she can win the PoV so it's a good thing she's a pawn.
So with that I can wrap up another review but I'll be back on Wednesday to see who wins the PoV and I'll let everyone know. I'll also be here for my next Survivor review to watch Jason explode and at the end of the week for the Amazing Race. See you Wednesday house guests.
