Time for the live viewscreen interview with Julie and the HGs. She starts by asking Natalie about the mood in the house. Natalie says it's tense, but at least it's more united than last week. Before things can get too interesting, though, there's a retread of the luxury competition with the men in women's outfits, because that was so hilarious the first time.
After some more ads, Julie tells us that the internet has been calling Ronnie "The Square Root of All Evil." Good one, internet! LOLZ! That's her introduction to her private HoH interview with Ronnie, and she asks why he tried the playing-both-sides strategy, since a BB expert like him has to know that it usually backfires. Ronnie claims he was really playing only one side, since he actually was tight with the Athletes. Julie asks why he didn't nominate Russell, and he says it was too soon to burn his bridges with Jessie and Natalie. Julie asks how he lived locked up in the HoH room for 48 hours, and he basically says it's like his life. Plus it was a ploy for sympathy, and he claims he has at least five people downstairs on his side. Julie sends him back down to the living room, his delusions intact.
Julie switches the channel back to the living-room-cam for the nominee speeches. Jordan goes first, making a babbling speech about uncovering the rat together and calling everyone "Gucci." Laura's speech is about how glad she was to have met everyone, but makes reference to "manipulation and lies" that prevented that from happening fully. Okay, but it's not Ronnie's fault she came into the house all "I think Jessie's the hottest." I mean, Jesus.
The voting begins. Jeff goes first, and you know he votes to evict Laura. Jessie votes his grudge against Laura. Natalie, however, votes to evict Jordan, just to "spice things up." Casey votes out Laura, as do Russell, Kevin, Lydia, Chima, and Michele. So it should be an interesting Sunday episode while everyone tries to figure out who voted to keep Laura. And of course I use the word "interesting" in terms of what it means on the scale of Big Brother episodes. Without even going to ads, Julie breaks the news that Laura was evicted in an 8-1 vote. She leaves the house, and it's pretty quiet among the eleven left behind. Especially Ronnie.
