The hamsters are getting breaking news from 'BBTV' at all hours of the night: short messages which will probably determine the HoH competition. (Bring on the Target Isolation Booths Of Doom!) But every time news breaks, so does the connection: insta-fish. At least one of those updates seems to have been about the rats in the pantry, as Joe's realized something was stolen. Possibly because he stole it, taking the nicotine patches out so he could watch people lose it during the next lockdown.
Janelle announced that she's gained five pounds since the game began. (And so it begins.) She also feels that one mentor will be given a chance to enter the game later in the season, but that's probably not the sort of thing she should be speaking about in public. Of course, not knowing what to keep silent about is pretty much her trademark... but as for the source...
...Britney and Willie had a five-minute blowup where she tried to get him to understand the damage he was doing to his own chances while admitting that the 'coaches enter main contest' rumor in the house was her own fault for opening her mouth after having the thought. She is trying to save Willie from himself. And that trick never works.
After the fracture between Britney and Janelle, the new mentor alliance is -- Janelle and Malin. Yes, even Ripley would have trouble with this one. No, I don't know which one is lying more about the temporarily loyalty. Yes, Kara's probably out.
This is the Brian Memorial Season: everyone has made approximately eighteen billion alliances in the first five minutes. People are trying to track them with scorecards, charts, and Venn diagrams. No one can get an accurate picture that lasts more than thirty minutes. So if you have no idea who in the cage is working with whom? Join the @#$%ing club.
JoJo has figured out that the DR is trying to manipulate the vote and tilt the eventual win towards their favorites. JoJo has a brain. Let's see if she can keep using it. (And yes, that got out on the feeds too. The rats don't care any more.) Malin may have realized JoJo's thinking abilities because he's gone to his first and only resort with an intelligent woman and called her a tramp.
Some people seem to feel Ashley is this week's swing vote. They may or may not have bothered to tell her. Kara certainly has: she's trying to arrange things for Kara to be Hinky Vote #1. She's telling Ashley no one will ever figure it out. What's the track record on that one, exactly?
Wil has discovered that if you want to get past Dan's sweet outer shell, just talk about religion. And then you will be condemned to everlasting hellfire. But it'll be very polite agony, at least for the first eight seconds.
