Howie and George have a talk in which they discuss the fact that George needs to win the veto, which George repeats in the DR. "The force is with you, Georgie," Howie says. Howie DRs that he likes George, and will miss him when he leaves. George assures Howie that he'll be rooting for him to do well. Aw. Bonding! Well, kind of. The kind of bonding that guys do when they're so incredibly bored, but they're not in jail. "Howie," George says, "you go for the money." He goes on: "And don't let nobody tell you you can't do it, because you can." Aha, who's the barely coherent Jedi now? Sad music plays, like they sort of want us to think we should feel sad about the impending breakup of Howie and George, but Howie and sad music cannot really coexist unironically. Howie tells George he's "been a great Jedi apprentice."
So now, it's time for another round of choosing people at random to participate in PoV. This time, they'll choose by picking balls out of a bag. There are balls with everyone's name, and then there are ones that say "Houseguest's Choice." If James or a nominee picks one of those, then they can pick whomever they want to participate in the veto competition. James picks Kaysar's name. Kaysar flatly proclaims in the DR that he was "very ecstatic." I have to say...you kind of can't tell. "Very ecstatic" looks a lot like "thinking about going to the store later." Will picks Houseguest's Choice, so he picks Mike to compete, of course. George picks Jase, who DRs that he doesn't want Will or Mike to get the veto, since they'd use it and he himself might go up.
So this veto competition involves an escalating series of tasks -- as long as you're willing and able to complete them, you stay in. The first task is eating an entire bowl of slop. Each person will hold up either a green or a red marker to say that they will or won't be participating in each task. For the slop, everyone puts up the green, so everyone's willing to try. Will and Mike, however, quit the slop early. I'm not sure they're all that driven, given that this is stuff that several people ate all week long. I am suspicious. Danielle comments that slop "is Satan's oatmeal." It's so bad that it gives George the shakes, but he does finish it. Mike tells us that he feels bad that he wasn't able to get it done, but when you throw up, you throw up.
