Nomination Day again, and Adam belatedly contemplates the memory wall. Jordan DRs that she doesn't trust Adam. Rachel says Adam's a "wild card," when in fact he's more like the instruction card that shows up too late in the game to not mess anything up. Porsche is just hoping that Adam recognizes his need to be up against a newbie at the end. And Adam VOs about needing to make the right decision.
Adam convenes the nomination ceremony, fetching the ladies from a bedroom instead of the backyard as usual. Once they're all in the kitchen with the nearly empty key box, Adam pulls one key -- and it's Rachel's. He tells them he's giving Porsche and Jordan the chance to save themselves like Rachel has done for herself in the past. "Good speech," Rachel says, because she loves a speech that is all about how awesome she is. Even she can't believe she's not nominated, but she's still motivated to win the Veto. And Adam blowhards, "If you want to be in the final three, you have to earn it." Like Adam has.
Casting notice for next season, which is the kind of thing that fills me with despair. Because it means there's going to be a next season.
Time for the PoV competition, which has a jukebox theme. Each player gets a game board with ten clues on each side, referring to one houseguest. They also get a set of blocks with a different houseguest's name on each side. They have to stack the blocks between the columns of clues so the correct answer is next to each clue. First one to get it right wins the last PoV. Rachel wants to win it so she can go to the final three, and Porsche knows it's her last chance to stay in the game.
The competition begins, and Adam is confident of victory. Porsche's strategy is to stage them on the ground before stacking them; that way, in case she screws up, she doesn't have to waste time unstacking. Probably her smartest decision of the summer. Jordan's totally vapor-locking this, of course. Porsche gets all her blocks stacked, but when she hits her button, she gets the "wrong" buzzer. We can see that she only got one wrong because the producers helpfully highlighted the fourth one down on the screen, but she doesn't know that. She starts unstacking again. The others get pretty motivated at someone having buzzed in already, but Porsche fixes her mistake quickly enough to buzz in again before anyone else -- and get it correct this time, so she's got the PoV, and a guaranteed spot in the final three. Suck on that, Jordan. But it's Rachel who cries in the DR. Jordan just says her own chances are looking slim.
