Janelle. She's trying to create some.
Right now, Janelle is trying to arrange a 4-4 vote, forcing Willie to cast an HoH tiebreaker. Why? Because she openly thinks unanimous tallies are boring. And because she wants to put Willie on the serious outs with whichever coach loses a team member to his vote. Focus all blame on the ouster to one party.
She also wants to see a showmance, supposedly to entertain the viewers. Because she remembers how entertaining it was for us to see her get played, right? So to this end, she's encouraging JoJo to go after Shane. And then she ducked out of JoJo's hearing and encouraged Danielle to go after Shane. Because there's no way that could ever cause problems.
What's she up to? Not sure. Maybe having a Hantz in the cage was inspirational.
In other news...
...Shane did not use the veto: nominations are stable.
...Willie is taking the typical HoH power fall and is scrambling around trying to get reassurances that he's safe and everyone is on his side, minus the people who aren't. He's annoyed with Janelle. He's trying to work with Ashley on a mini-alliance which involves coaching her on what he believes will be the next HoH competition. He thinks this will be a 'Who does America think is most likely to?' quiz. He also thinks one of the questions will be 'to land in jail'. So he has seen the show.
...Malin tried to blame the ant invasion on Britney's housekeeping. No one fell for it.
...JoJo is now planning to house-date Ian in order to get information out of him. (So there's her strategy -- but she claims no one talks about the game with her.) Ian, for his part, knows he's in trouble and has taken to speaking directly to the camera for an America's Confessional. He thinks he needs the next HoH. He's probably right. Ronnie II, indeed.
...Ian and Ashley had their date, with Joe playing chef and the other hamsters as waitstaff. It didn't go badly. Or well. Or -- anything, really.
...Britney is getting sick of people trying to make her badmouth Rachel. And did the game bring her fame the first time around? Well, after she left the house to find her own burned down, someone tried to buy her swimsuit.
Just the bottom half.
