Janelle calls Erika aside to tell her that she's just sure Erika won't go home. Everyone, Janelle says, will be voting out Mike. Erika DRs that this could all easily be untruthful, but Janelle says, "I promise you, you'll be safe."
Upstairs, S6 meets up to debrief, and James says that he's okay with Janelle's nominations. But in the DR, he says her decision was stupid, because they need to get rid of Will and Mike. In the abomination, the group agrees that it's Mike that will go. So apparently the people who aren't being filled in about what Janelle wants include all the members of her "alliance." When the group is gone, Will shows up. He flops down and says to Janelle that he thinks everybody makes their own decisions. He works on giving himself a manicure as she talks and talks about the prospect of someone getting the veto and taking Mike off the block. Manicures are how men think. Well, real men, at least. Janelle says that her reason for not nominating two floaters was that she didn't want the "tension" of people being mad at her. That is so weak, seriously. Have some guts, little lady, or people will start addressing you as things like "little lady." Janelle asks again if Will is willing (heh) to vote out the person she asks him to, and he says he will. They work towards a deal where if Mike can get off the block, and Janelle can put up another floater, Will is going to take out the person she wants (that is: Diane). Janelle wants to talk to Mike before this goes forward. Will DRs that Janelle responds a lot better to charisma than she does to being yelled at by Kaysar and James, which is a good point, actually. I don't think Kaysar yells at her, but I do think he can be guilt-inducing and hectoring at times. There's also the almost complete lack of smiling.
Mike comes up to talk to Janelle in the abomination. First, she says not to worry about the nomination speech. Including, presumably, the part where she talked about disliking him "very much." She also says that the plan now is that theyre playing for the veto, and if they can get him off the block, she'll nominate another floater. If she does, will he vote for the person she says? "Sure," Mike says. "We'll do whatever you want." Janelle says in the DR that she doesn't want to make deals without her alliance, but her alliance is wrong and she's right, so she's going to make deals without her alliance anyway. Which makes it not so much an alliance as a cult of personality. "I don't want to operate unilaterally, but they won't do what I want, so I have to take matters into my own hands!" The last refuge of the person who does not play nicely with others.
