Remember how last Thursday’s episode was chock-full of filler? Well, this one is worse! These houseguests have become so insufferable, we actually spend almost half this episode interviewing people who aren’t in the house. And it is such a relief, to be honest.
Things start off on a sour note, as Julie says we’ve reached the halfway point! Oh my god, only halfway? How do we DO this every summer?! Julie is sporting a plain purple dress and one of King Tut’s necklaces.
“The mummy I stole this from has cursed me to host this show for a thousand years.”
Previously: Shane, Britney, Dan, and Danielle are in two separate alliances that are competing to see who can come up with the worst name. Seriously, the Silent Six and the Quack Pack? These guys are making the members of the Brigade look like creative geniuses.
Julie teases us that Big Brother favorite Jeff is returning tonight! To… talk about the houseguests? Um, why? Does he just hang around outside the CBS lot, begging the producers to give him stuff to do?
Flashback to the veto ceremony! Dan is relieved that he didn’t get backdoored. Wil is mad Frank “chickened out” from backdooring Dan, but he suspects Joe will dig his own grave this week. We all know Wil is going, but let’s pretend like we don’t.
“Psst… Britney, check it out. I pooped in this casserole.”
Bathroom chat with Britney, Shane, and Danielle! It’s the typical “we need to win HoH” talk, because they don’t trust Frank and Boogie. Man, this Silent Six alliance is the WORST. To her credit, Britney points out that their alliance didn’t even survive a week. So why are we still calling it an alliance? And this is why Frank is so stupid – when he let it be known that he was thinking about backdooring Dan, he alerted everyone that the alliance was broken, and then he didn’t act on it. Frank is terrible at this game.
Ashley mopes outside with Joe, while Frank tickles Dan’s feet upstairs (?). Frank tells him honestly that he was thinking about backdooring him, thinking this will buy Dan’s loyalty??? Wow, Frank. I don’t even know what to say. Dan, obviously, loses any last vestiges of trust in Frank. Good plan, Frank! Vote him out, Dan.
Frank wants Wil gone, because Ashley and Joe won’t work together without him uniting them. So… then you’ve broken up Ashley and Joe? OH NO, THE HOUSE’S POWER COUPLE! This is such a nonsense plan. All of these people are too scared to actually do anything. Besides Danielle, who got rid of a legitimate threat. I can’t believe Danielle is the ballsiest person in this game, but this is the state of Big Brother these days.
“…We are in a showering-with-our-clothes-on competition, right?”
