So for those who knew we'd never get to the second HoH competition last night because Julie used up so much time on Amanda's interview and barely had enough to let Elissa establish just where her unassisted game IQ was, here's your results.
McCrae and GinaMarie are tied to each other via friendship bracelet for a full day. Go ahead and laugh. Fortunately, it's six feet long, which gives them more to work with than we saw the last time this punishment was recycled. (How could McCrae be punished when he's not even allowed to play? Because it's Big Brother. More below.)
Judd must exercise on cue for a full day: hear the whistle and get to stepping. Or in his case, jumping jacks.
Andy will have a chance to win up to $5000 sometime today. No one knows how, including Andy.
And Spencer is HoH after winning a face-matching competition -- you know the one: we get it every year without mercy -- and apparently had a role in handing out the rewards and punishments.
So far, the main effect of the friendship chain is that the full alliance is having trouble getting together for Amanda and Elissa bashing. It hasn't kept them from plotting, though. Right now, nominees are set to be McCrae (target) and GinaMarie. Should McCrae win veto, Judd goes up and might become the target -- but there's been talk of switching GM to evictee under that scenario.
Hamsterwatch expects the feeds to go on block before Wednesday -- that eviction should be taped in advance, and the rats like to hide all results for as long as they can get away with, plus twelve hours. Which at least saves us from some part of Reign Of Spencer.
The drunken insane uncle is now in charge. Screaming is mandatory.
