Speaking of which, time for the HoH chat. Jessica didn't credit Jen's parting shot about Eric's alleged girlfriend; ultimately, she believes Eric. She thinks it took Eric so long to put the moves on her because of the game and the cameras. If it comes down to Jessica and Eric, and Dick and Daniele, in the final four, Jessica will try her best to make sure she isn't the first of the four to get kicked out.
And then the nominees are dancing for their lives. Zach offers an over-rehearsed speech that ties in various notable events in the house to the "Wonderland" theme. Amber, immediately starting to cry, talks about how hard it has been in the house and how rare and unique her relationships with her fellow houseguests have been. Also, she's in a tank top and track pants, which sort of underscores the fact that she's just completely given up.
Voting! Jameka, crying a little, votes to evict Zach.
In his fake-out time, Eric learns that he's completed seventeen of 24 "America's Player" tasks, earning himself $30,000. Not bad.
Dick votes to evict Amber.
And Daniele apparently did the math on how likely it was that any of Amber's grandiose promises would ever pan out, and also votes to evict Amber.
Julie sadistically waits until after the commercials to tell Amber that she's out. Amber has obviously been expecting this and heads for the door with a minimum of fuss. Jameka gets the last and longest hug, and then Amber soggily heads out, leaving Jameka sobbing. Once Amber's gone, the view of the house shows Jameka still crying, and getting hugs from the remaining houseguests. Jameka. Dude. It's Amber.
Chenderdome. Amber says she got voted out because everyone was threatened by her. She blames Eric the most for her eviction because he was playing both sides. Julie awesomely asks how you determine who in the game is good and bad, and Amber mushmouths an answer that encompasses everything from making deals to being rude -- basically, a bad person is anyone who isn't Amber or Jameka. Or maybe the ghost of Nick. Speaking of whom, when Julie asks whether Amber thinks God didn't want her to win Big Brother, Amber actually takes some responsibility, saying that she made a lot of mistakes in the game, like voting Nick out. She further thinks that, in being on TV, she was "shown to the world," so that whether it's her future career as a motivational speaker, or possibly enrollment in nursing school (which would be affected by her short-lived and somewhat shameful TV career...how?), something will come out of this for Amber. Man, I have seen some deluded reality-show contestants before, but Amber seriously makes Jade seem lucid.
