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.
Danielle and Marcellas chat with Erika and Diane about whether they sort of need to have a loose alliance. Marcellas says that it doesn't "behoove" him for floaters to be leaving the house. Behoove. Behoove, behoove, behoove. I don't type it nearly enough. I'm happy that Marcellas can bring something positive to my life.
That night, houseguests are getting ready for bed when Janelle says that everyone has to come to the living room to pick the veto players for tomorrow morning. She tells them that this will be an unusual competition. But to begin with, six people will play, which is...usual. Three will be chosen at random from the bag. Out of the bag, she selects Houseguest's Choice, and she grabs Howie. Erika picks Diane. Mike picks Houseguest's Choice, and he, of course, chooses Will. Will claims that he will be trying to win the competition, and that he hopes to get lucky and get Mike off the block. Janelle says that the veto will happen in the morning, and they'll only have one minute of notice. And if you're not in the yard in one minute, you'll lose your shot. Get there in one minute, or you're out of luck? I am totally not sleeping with the Big Brother house, because that constitutes taking me for granted.
But first! They show the bit where it is explained to the houseguests that America has sent in audiovisual "wakeup calls." And they reveal to the houseguests that America was given a choice between waking them up every three hours, every hour, every half-hour, or every fifteen minutes. As you all know, this obviously means that they will be awakened every fifteen minutes, because America would choose to have the houseguests whipped for every indiscretion if they thought it would be fun to watch. Danielle, for some reason, finds this hilarious and awesome. Perhaps she doesn't mind a little sleep deprivation. "What, for the live feeders?" Howie asks. "They're going to wake us up every fifteen minutes," George says, who has read the boards, apparently.
