Joshuah shows everyone his HoH room, including the photo of him and Jen, and another picture of Ryan and his sister, whom Matt hits on via the DR. All class, that one. Iowa native and Hawkeye fan Chelsia jokingly stomps on Ryan's Hawkeyes shirt. Ooh, a longstanding sports-based rivalry! This is what is going to have to pass for a twist at this point.
Sheila lies on one of the beds while Adam lies on the next bed over, and she cries about how much she's going to miss Allison, and how she can't trust anyone now. Says the woman who voted her out. "They're' going to come after you and I," she warns Adam. He stares at her bug-eyed (or blankly -- it's hard to tell with Adam), and then she says that Adam has been playing a good game. She asks him to have her back. "We'll see what happens," Adam sighs. Aw, they'll always have Wall.
James and Chelsia have a conversation where he tells her that he's fallen for her, and he's going to do whatever he can to help her in the game, even if it means he ends up screwing himself. He wants them to stay together -- including continuing to share a bed -- but she doesn't think anyone should sleep together any more. To soften the blow, she promises that if she can't win it all, she wants him to. And what's more romantic than telling someone they're your second choice?
Now we get a little segment about how happy Sheila is to have a bed to herself, instead of sharing with a guy with a Jimmy leg who talks in his sleep and snores. Riveting.
Matt reconciles with Ryan, saying that he only voted for Ryan to deny Josh the pleasure of doing it with a tiebreaking HoH vote. Ryan seems to buy it. So now he and Matt decide to form an alliance. Who else will they invite? It's looking like Adam (who everyone's calling "Baller" now, as if we needed another reason to hate Adam) and James will join then in a "crew" to "weed out all the garbage." In other words, the women and the gay guy. Charming. To James's credit, he plays it cool, telling us in the DR that he doesn't plan to form any kind of alliance at this point. I'm trying not to make a joke about James being the weak link in any straight-guy alliance. It's not going so well.
