And meanwhile, JoJo is in the Have-Not room throwing Willie under the bus to Danielle. Of course they get real quiet when Willie comes in, but after an awkward pause, JoJo steps up and says she can't be associated with him. Willie seems to get it, and stays behind in the Have-Not room, to calm down I guess. Wrong room for it, though, big time. After a bit, he goes out to the kitchen and sits down and loudly munches pork rinds, ignoring other people's comments and just generally trying to ratchet up the tension even farther than it already is. Willie mumbles something about "a bunch of ____ up in this bitch," and Joe, wandering by, says Willie's the only _____ he sees. So Willie jumps up and runs after him, like there's about to be a fight. With Joe's fists balled up, and Willie repeatedly hollering at Joe to hit him, and with towel-clad Ian the only person trying to separate them right now, there just might be. And not even a normal transition to commercial is here to restore normality.
After the break, Willie's yelling brings everyone in the house running. When Joe refuses to back down, Willie pushes him back with his face, which is just about the dorkiest fighting ever. Almost immediately, a producer's voice comes over the PA telling Willie to go to the back room. Willie goes, angrily demanding to know why everyone's gathering around. Why do you think, genius? "Joe, do not follow him," the voice adds. While Willie's being sent to his room, everyone else hugs like they've just survived some major trauma. Britney's even crying. "Willie, come to the DR now," the voice snaps. Willie goes, and the last we see of him is getting up from the DR chair and leaving the room -- in the opposite direction from normal. "I need you to come with me," says the unluckiest producer in the world.
Jenn comforts Britney in the aftermath, and JoJo and Shane talk about how they'll go down too. Britney gets up to go lie down, and fortunately only has to put up with a few seconds of Mike's goading in the bedroom before a female voice summons them all to the living room. It's executive producer Allison Grodner herself, reminding them via audio only that violence is not tolerated in the Big Brother house, "So Willie has been removed from the game." Britney DRs that she's relieved, but it's the worst thing that could happen to her as a coach. Ian DRs that Willie did it to himself, calling it "the least dignified exit in Big Brother history." Well, Chima was right up there. Shane says a real man would have stuck it out. Mike lies that he feels sorry for Willie after seeing him throwing away the prize money over a bad temper. Joe yells in the DR to Willie, "PLEASE FIND PEACE, BROTHER." Being far away from Joe should help with that. And after that early exit, it seems gratuitous to have nominations. So there aren't any, at least not for tonight. Congrats, producers, you picked another winner.
