The goal for this competition is to transfer stacks of fake cash from one end of a low balance beam to a narrow pedestal at the other, one brick at a time. The first one to finish wins, obviously, but if anyone's money or foot hits the ground, they're out. I'm not sure how anybody is going to win this.
Britney DRs that she's motivated to win so she can ditch Willie. Danielle, on the other hand, wants Dan to win, but Dan DRs that he needs to throw it to keep up their "weak persona." That's his strategy? Losing? Well, I guess he knows what he's doing. The competition begins, and the players discover that the pants are preventing them from walking normally; all they can do is shuffle sideways like they're in the "Can't Touch This" video.
Britney takes an early lead, but after a while she tips some cash off her table and knocks them to the ground, so she's out. Ian gives Mike some physics advice from the sidelines on the construction of his stack. Mike finishes first, but then smugly returns to his button and steps off with a self-congratulatory line before hitting it. Way to go, idiot. That means it's a win for Janelle, possibly even if Dan hadn't thrown it. Now Janelle gets to decide whether to do a trade or an immunity. She passes on the latter, and gives immunity to Ashley. Like she was in danger anyway. Now Janelle gets to pick four Have-Not players for the week. She names Willie first, and then adds JoJo, as well as Shane and Ian for the second week in the row. In other words, Janelle screwed Britney's whole team. Either she's really trying to hide her alliance with Britney, or it doesn't exist any more.
When the players come back inside, they discover that the Have-Nots' slop is augmented by pork rinds and pudding this week. Ian's thrilled about the latter, at least, not that it takes much with this kid. In the post-competition milling, Willie tries to take JoJo aside for a private chat, but Britney puts the kibosh on that quick, pulling her away from Willie without bothering to hide what she's doing. In the Have-Not room, Britney tells her to stay away from Willie, like JoJo minds doing that at all. Later, Willie comes into the kitchen and tells JoJo he's taking the heat off her, like this was his plan all along. Britney swoops in again and tells him to steer clear of everyone.
Up in the HoH room, Mike and Janelle and Frank and Joe are gloating about Janelle's Have-Not selections, while Britney keeps telling Willie to leave her other players alone. Willie heads upstairs, and while the folks in the HoH room watch his approach on the monitor, Willie calls down to Britney from the balcony that he's about to go in and straighten things out. This should go well. Willie goes in and asks them not to blame his teammates for his fuck-ups. [Note: Which doesn't at all make him looking freaking insane, given that he barged at the exact moment that Joe was trying to lock him out. Strategy! -- Rachel.]
