Finally, we’ve gotten to the portion of the show wherein Julie talks to the houseguests, all live and uncensored. She greets them all generally, and then turns to Mike. "Hi, Mike," Julie says. "I think you’re flirting with me," Mike says. "I think you’re hoping," Julie replies. Dude, burn! Julie and the houseguests blather on about peanut butter and jelly for, like, a hundred years. Shannon complains that she’s too weak "to lift" because they haven’t gotten any decent food, and Julie shoots her the fakest smile in the world. "That’s rough," she says dismissively. Okay, Julie’s totally my new girlfriend. Blah blah blee blee. Nicole misuses the word "literally" when she tells Julie that she wants to be HoH so badly she can taste it, literally. And finally, finally, we get to Kent and Autumn’s potentially final words to the house.
Kent’s speech rocks. He says that this house is like a "microcosm" of society, and he’s found "love and compassion and helpfulness and honesty in a lot of folks, and anger and hurtfulness and vanity and greed" in other people. If he has to be like the vain greedy people to win this game, he says, he’d rather go home. "To those of you in this house who carry yourself with grace and dignity, I salute you. You’ve done a great job. To those of you who’ve made life in this house very difficult, do not make the mistake of not voting me out tonight. Because if you do, hear me well: your ass is mine." He’ll leave you in the road, dying of thirst, and let the vultures get ya, with no ill regrets!
Autumn twitters that she feels hard-pressed to follow that speech. So, she says a whole bunch of boring stuff about how her being warm and caring has become a liability, and then she says something about a roommate who turned on her, and no one cares. Julie’s, like, filing her nails and thinking about her cute strappy shoes. Autumn finishes by explaining that she in a "win-win situation," because, like Kent, if she stays, it’s going to be rough living with her. If she leaves, though, she gets to go back to a normal, happy life.
More voting footage. Bunky votes to evict Autumn, through much sniffling.
Next is the boring boring filler about Kent’s and Autumn’s families. I loathe this section, because let’s be honest -- I don’t care about their families. I care about the plotting and the machinations! Back to the machinations! Autumn tells us that she named her child Justus by combining the words "Just us." Great. Fantastic. Not at all dooming your child to sixty-plus years of having to spell out his name to every state and county official, teacher, and potential employer.
