Gerry calls everyone into the living room to hear the results of America's Choice. Unlike some of the other stuff, you can tell they really want this one. And the winner is...Jason. He goes into the diary room to receive his letter. It's from his mom. Aww. She loves him. He cries a lot. It also says that his family does nothing but sit around and discuss Big Brother 3. Can you imagine? Yuck. He continues crying, quite a lot. "This is the most awesome thing ever, you guys," he says through tears. Again, aww. Call me a sucker for upstanding pretty-boys, but the guy just melts my cold, black heart. He goes back out into the living room to read the other houseguests the part of the letter where her mom sends them all big, southern, God-fearing hugs.
And now, Jason Appreciation Time. The Jason Tango strikes up as he pours Kiki a fresh drink. She diary-rooms how cute and how sweet he is, and then Marcellas diary-rooms how cute and how sweet he is, and then Roddy calls him "the nicest person I might have ever met in my life." Eric says he's never heard Jason use language stronger than "crap." Lisa says she doesn't think Jason is strategizing, and then Mama Danielle says in the diary room that a whole lot of people who are taking Jason for Gomer Pyle are going to be mightily surprised in a little while. "Jason playin' all them fools," she says. We see Jason strategizing with Marcellas and Danielle. "Jason has a dark side," she continues. "Jason's dark side is me." Ha! I'm not sure on how many levels that was supposed to be funny, but I found it funny on at least two. In the Big Bed Room, Jason whispers to Marcellas and Danielle that they might need to stage a fight if there are any suspicions that they have an alliance. Oh, Jason, you are beautiful and wicked. "If they think he's not playing the game," Danielle says simply in the diary room, "then they're stupid." Funny Editor #6 whip-cuts to Chiara saying, "He's not a threat to me. At all. Absolutely not a threat to me." "If Jason were scheming everybody," Roddy says, "then he deserves the Oscar for the next five years." Note that Roddy, unlike his dippy girlfriend, at least leaves open the possibility that Jason is scheming, he just doesn't think it's likely, which makes him a little less of a fool. Though not much less. I mean, I don't really think anyone in the house is going to be invited to speak at the United Nations when this is over, so it's all relative.
As Kiki and Gerry do dishes together, she tries to get a commitment from him that if she uses the veto, he'll put up Josh. We do not see the rest of this conversation.
