Mike next makes an effort to feel out where George is, and George makes it sound like he knows he has no choice but to get together with Will and Mike and friends and go after S6. George says in the DR that he had to go with everybody else, since four people came in with a pre-existing alliance. Of course, Will and Mike came in with one, too, but at least there are only two of them. Will closes the hot-tub discussion by saying that they can all agree someone from S6 needs to go as soon as possible. I'm sure that as soon as one of them can win HoH, they'll be happy to put that plan right into effect.
Filler: A long scene in which Howie gets into the shower and later discovers that he has no towel. He can't get help from Kaysar, because Kaysar has headphones on, so Howie has to get out of the shower briefly without any clothes on to fetch a towel. Yes, that is everything that happens, with wacky music playing the entire time. It pretty much all leads up to a shot of naked Howie with his naughty parts obscured. That is qualifying as a highlight, which is how you know you don't need the live feeds.
Kaysar talks to the two nominees, but it's not game. It's just time to talk about everyone's lives, because Kaysar really, truly cares. He asks Diane if she's considering leaving California, and she says that if she gets thrown out of the house soon, she'll have to go home in disgrace, since she has no money. She should marry Mike! She could have money and stay in California! I can't believe she hasn't already thought of this. Maybe she has. Maybe she's working a plan. I guess we'll see! She weeps in the DR that she came on the show because she needed "an outlet," and she's letting her family down by not being strong enough to...stay in the house? I don't know. I don't really get it. If your family doesn't like you because, like, Janelle votes you out, then your family is a bunch of assholes. She says she could maybe go home with her sister, and then she DRs some more about her pathetic day-to-day existence. It would appear that Diane has decided to use Big Brother: All-Stars as a sort of referendum on the value of her existence, which I have to tell you doesn't strikes me as sound idea. Nakomis tells her to just "find [herself] a rich boyfriend," and Diane says something along the lines of, "Yeah, that's kind of my plan." Nakomis is a little taken back, and immediately explains that she wasn't serious. That's embarrassing when that happens, isn't it? "Well, you could always join the circus." "Yeah, I was thinking that." "...Oh."
