Julie welcomes us back, standing next to the viewscreen showing all the houseguests congregated in the living room. Before she tells them who the HoH is, she tells them that they're about to have their first competition. Jessie offers to sit out, and the rest split up according to which side of the room they're sitting on. And they're way too excited when Julie tells them to meet her in the back yard for the first time.
Julie's not back there, of course. What is back there is two pairs of cars: two VW bugs suspended upside down from tracks (not waiting to crush the biggest asshole, alas), and a couple of 60s-era muscle cars to one side. The teams are divided into red and white, and they learn that they're competing for one of those "classic cars." Whatever, Big Brother, we know you're too cheap to spring for a new ride. Jessie regrets sitting out, which is one thing, but Memphis calls Jessie's move "one of the most boneheaded moves in Big Brother history." Was that the earliest instance of hyperbole in Big Brother history? Because I'd hate for history to happen and I miss it. The competition will require the teams to climb up en masse into each inverted car and pull it along a track to pick up and drop off gas cans on each end of the track, and they have to also drop a houseguest off -- and out of the competition -- with each pass. Oh, and it's also a food competition, with the loser on slop for a week (not including Jessie, in the biggest bonehead move-turned-brilliant strategy in Big Brother history. Just trying to get into the spirit of things here).
As the competition starts and the people start boosting each other in, negotiation over who needs the car has already begun. Libra's willing to drop out, but Steven claims that his truck broke down the day he left. The red team is the first to ditch a player, and it's Renny, because she is useless. Libra keeps her word and drops out first for white. Red maintains its lead, dropping Michelle. Keesha drops out of white, and then the red team ditches Angie. Dan drops out for red, and Jerry nearly throws the pin in his hip jumping out of the white car. With red down to Steven and Memphis, they start to rock-paper-scissors, allowing white to cut into their lead until Steven cedes it to Memphis so the team can avoid slop. And just like that, Memphis has won himself a car. So that's the white team on slop. April claims to be worried about the diet, specifically its possible effect on her teammate Jerry's safety. Like he never ate anything worse when he was in the Marines. Memphis picks the Camaro for himself. Enjoy driving it to sequester in a couple of weeks, Bartender.
