Final HoH round, which is taking place between Dan and Ian right there in the living room. They're sitting at tiny desks with a cube divider between them, and as usual, they're going to have to guess how each juror completed a statement that Julie will read them the beginning of. Ian looks nervous, while Dan smirks confidently. The first question is about Ashley's favorite time in the house: her ice cream date with Frank, or dressing up like a giant tortilla chip? Both Ian and Dan pick A (Ian with a pained expression), so they're tied with one point each. Was Joe's biggest regret relying too much on his cooking or his "ten alliances?" That's an easy one, because they both know Joe can't resist a lame joke (it's B, and they both get it right). Britney's most embarrassing moment was either "having to say 'Quack Pack,' like, a million times this summer" or "when one of my players seriously told me that she had bartered cigarettes for a vote." Well, they both sound like Britney. Dan guesses A and Ian B, so Ian pulls into the lead, 3-2.
What was the most irritating part for Frank -- being lied to or being on the block every week? Ian also gets that one right and Dan wrong. They also disagree on whether Jenn thought the most awkward moment in the house was Willie's fight with Frank outside or the first double eviction night. Ian gets that one right as well, and with an insurmountable three-point lead, it's all over: Ian's the final HoH, and he gets to decide all by his lonesome whether to evict Dan or Danielle. Can't wait to see what Dan's contingency plan is for this.
After the ads, Dan and Danielle are sitting in the nominee chairs for the first time. Julie gets on the living room viewscreen and reminds Ian, as if he doesn't know, that he's a certainty for at least the fifty-thousand-dollar second prize. Ian stands up and says he hates to evict a fellow Quack Packer (a superfan should know that alliances end at the finale), but tells Danielle that he has to honor his commitment to Dan and evict her. She looks pretty bitter as she hugs Ian and Dan goodbye and walks out, but manages to paste a Joker-smile on her face as she enters the studio and greets Julie. Inside, Dan and Ian do the Renegades handshake and talk about the third round, in which Ian admits that he was guessing most of the time. See, how can you even throw a competition when it's all random anyway?
