Jessie goes to Lydia to invite her to talk, but Lydia isn't any more interested in talking to Natalie than Natalie is in talking to her. Jessie at least has enough of a brain in his head not to enjoy being caught between two petulant nutcases.
Nominations today. Jessie thoughtfully looks over the memory wall, adding to the alleged drama by taking out a few keys to look at the names. Meanwhile, Casey DRs that Jessie had better evict Ronnie, who in turn says he feels as safe as he could with Jessie as HoH. Michele frets that nobody cares if she leaves. For once, she's nailed it. Jessie again says this is about himself, and he has someone in mind to get rid of.
Everyone gathers around for the nomination ceremony. As always, the HoH's clique-mates are safe, so Russell, Jeff, and Natalie get their keys right away. [I love this, saves so much time watching them pull keys out! -- Angel] The rest of the safe people, in order, are Chima, Kevin, Casey, Lydia, and... Ronnie. So much for the plan. That leaves Michele and Jordan as the nominees. Jessie declines to explain himself: "That's it," is all he says by way of adjourning the meeting. At least he's pissed off the entire house pretty much evenly. Michele tries to stay positive, but Jordan DRs her hope that she and Michele are just pawns so Ronnie can be backdoored. Jessie does share some of his warped thoughts with us in the DR; he understates, "Michele and Jordan aren't exactly killer instinct competitors. More than likely, they're not going to win the PoV." So far, so good. Hopefully I can win the PoV. Then, fingers crossed, I can hopefully backdoor someone I really want out of this house." He's not sharing who that might be, though. As for Ronnie, he gloats over his pardon from Jessie. Whatever Ronnie's other weaknesses might be, he is if nothing else a champion gloater.
