Jeff talks to Jordan about his talk with Daniele, and her claim that she'd throw the PoV. They agree that they can't trust her, and Jeff is still considering nominating her. This comes complete with fantasizing about Daniele's wrath.
Nomination Day. Porsche thinks she'll be a nominee, and although she doesn't think she's a target, she says it's easy to go home as a pawn with only eight players left. Kalia expects to be put on the block for risking Jeff weeks ago, even after her assurances that he wasn't her target. Daniele is hoping Jeff will stick to her "deal," but Jeff says it's his big moment, so he's going to do what he's been planning to do for a while. Kind of a giveaway there.
Nomination meeting. Jordan grins at Jeff like she knows she's safe, which, okay. The first key pulled is Rachel's. Also safe are Shelly, Adam, and Jordan. Way to make her sweat, Jeff. She has a little trouble getting her key on over her dunce beanie's propeller, but she eventually manages it. The final safe person is Daniele, so Kalia and Porsche are the nominees. Jeff explains that it's down to eight people. He guilt-trips Porsche some more and says he wants to see her compete, and tells Kalia that turnabout is fair play. So who's his actual target, then? Porsche DRs about how pissed she is at being nominated, and wants to stay "so I can kick Jeff off next week." Which she will accomplish by a few limp remarks in the Diary Room, no doubt. Daniele is not thrilled -- not only are her two allies up, but she herself fears she might be backdoored. Kalia vows to lay low and fight for the Veto. Jeff figures the nominees' first move will be to "take a nap," which is fine with him because his ultimate goal is to backdoor Daniele anyway. I knew it!
