The Enemies reveal themselves and it's crazy awkward. Interestingly -- maddeningly -- everyone seems concerned for Joe, like this is a traumatic experience for him, because Dustin The Clap-Giver is in the house. Joe plays it up, of course, refusing to shake Dustin's hand or even look at him. When Dick introduces himself as Danielle's father, Joe gets all, "Ohhh!" And then he's all crestfallen when Dick says they haven't spoken in two years. Like Julie didn't just say these people were enemies. Danielle has the teeniest of breakdowns in the bathroom with Jameka and Carol, and I really admire her for holding herself together as well as she does.
Finally, Julie lets us in on the America's Player twist. This houseguest's actions will be determined by the whims of not just the people who watch Big Brother, but the people who are hardcore enough about it that they vote for America's Choice. That player, Julie reveals, is Eric. For every five "tasks" Eric completes, he will earn $10,000. I may be in the minority, but I think this could be a legitimately cool twist. Not necessarily because I wish the people on my TV would listen to me when I scream at them, necessarily, but because it could make Eric a really interesting contestant to watch. Particularly if and when his own personal feelings conflict with what American tells him to do. Also, it's going to force him to be a pretty canny player. The first time America instructs him to be the lone vote in a unanimous decision or use a veto unpopularly, he's going to have to explain it away somehow. I can't imagine how he'll be able to win with America behaving like a drunk behind the wheel -- they hated the Friendship, true, but they also gave Rupert a million dollars -- but it could be fun to watch.
...I am officially a sucker.
