Alright, I'm still a little confused about what's going on, but I'm going to try and summarize what's been happening.
So. The deal that Dan made with Ollie entails 4 things.
1. Ollie will not go on the block.
2. Michelle will not go on the block.
3. Ollie gets to choose one of the nominees.
4. If the POV is used, Ollie gets to choose the replacement.
How this convuluted deal came about, I don't know. *sigh*
As of right now, it seems like Dan's plan is to nominate Jerry and Memphis. (I know, right? WTF Dan?) He wants to keep his word to Ollie. BUT he also has other reasons. He wants to backdoor Michelle this week and he knows if he puts her up right away, she will be fighting her butt off for POV. So he's going to keep her off the block for now and hope that either himself, Memphis, Keesha or Renny win the POV. If they do, off comes Memphis (or maybe Jerry) and up goes Michelle and she goes out the door. Everything must go right for this plan to work. I'm scared for Dan.
Also, Dan proposed to Keesha and Renny that they make a firm Final Four alliance with them and Memphis. Renny wasn't having it! She hates Memphis, thinks he's sneaky, is going to vote him out the first chance she gets, etc. This of course scared Dan because he is planning on nominating Memphis this week, but he doesn't actually want him to go home. After an hour long discussion, it seems like they convinced Renny that they need Memphis for right now, but will agree to cutting him loose when the time is right, whether that be at the F4 or before then. None of them really trust Memphis, but they know that they need him to get further in the game. Now all that remains to be seen is whether Memphis will actually commit to them or not. If everything goes through with the plan to backdoor Michelle, he won't have much choice. He sure as hell isn't going to team up with Jerry, and a 2 person alliance with Ollie wouldn't do him much good.
Dan, Keesha and Renny have made a F3 pact and Renny is supposed to be coming up with a team name. Heh.
In conclusion, Dan made a really horrible deal, but if everything goes right, he could be ok. He knows that in order for it to work, he'll have to break some parts of his deal, but oh well. It would be Ollie and Jerry against the 4 of them next week.
