Once everyone's back in the living room after the commercials, Julie reveals the HoH results: Renny came in second with three votes, which I think makes this the closest she'll ever come to the post. But Jerry had four votes, so he's the first HoH., which means he'll need to nominate two people for eviction in 24 hours. Julie signs off with the houseguests for the night. Over already? No? Oh, crap.
Jerry DRs about how he plans to use this opportunity to do what he wants, and Dan plans to get to Jerry. He starts by forming an early alliance with Brian, and they both agree to bring in Ollie as well. If they have a plan beyond that, we're going to have to wait to find out what it is. But first-day alliances always do well, right? Dan DRs that he felt he could trust Ollie after seeing "the blacks of his eyes." Did I forget to mention that Ollie was black? Because Dan wouldn't have.
Jerry leads the gang up to his HoH room, which is nowhere near as bleak as last season's. "What they do for one person," he marvels in front of everyone. His morale is high.
One by one, the houseguests start heading to bed. Once everyone is asleep, Renny comes into one of the bedrooms and wakes everyone up by histrionically claiming that the bedroom door just locked behind her. Of course she's just doing what my friends and I call "pulling a Midvale. This makes her an early target, and she's not exactly apologetic at having woken up the entire house with her antics. "How old are you, 140?" Jessie whines in the DR, and when he confronts her about it, she tells him to lighten up. "The next person, I'll give them my cotton balls," she says to the night owls in the kitchen. Well, she's certainly making half of Jerry's job easy.
