In tonight's most wonderful segment by a very long longshot, a winking segment about Jen's tendency to discuss herself includes a bell-dinging drinking game played by Mike, Zach, and Dustin every time Jen uses the word says "I." That's going to be a lot of drinking. They actually do this right in front of her, which is pretty cool and pretty funny, even though it's the kind of thing you hope never happens to you, and it would be mean if directed at someone who was not begging for it with a series of self-saluting novelty tank tops OH MY GOD. The boys quickly realize that they're all going to wind up passed out drunk if they keep drawing Jen into conversation and drinking at every "I." As has always been the case with this show, it's never better than when it's slyly knowing about its players, and this segment was a great example. It also casts the boys involved in a very positive light, and it begins to reveal a core of non-suck that surrounds these particular guys. Before you know it, you may find yourself liking them, which will cause you to be invested, which will mean you are lost forever.
I must not have been paying enough attention to previous shots of the HoH room, because I wasn't really thinking consciously about the prison-cell décor, which is slightly surprising, since this is supposed to be the room where you feel awesome about yourself. Jen once again goes into one of her picture-induced fits when she decides that there aren't enough recent pictures and there aren't enough good pictures. She actually is sitting around the room, surrounded by pictures of family and friends, and all she can do is complain. The one upside of this, really, is that she is such a moron that she's having a sort of salutary effect on the rest of the house, in that at least they all have something to talk about that they agree on. I've seen quite a bit of this show, and I've seen individual cliques attack people, but I don't think I've ever seen a house converge in hatred upon one person with such consistency across the board. Jameka, for her part, can't believe that Jen is whining about the picture of Jen and her mom, just because Jen thinks she doesn't look good in it. I can't wait until she has kids and is like, "I hate this picture of my baby's first steps, because you can see my leg in the background, and those are not my favorite shoes. At all. I'm just really upset."
Joe tries to maneuver to get Dustin put up. He really has no argument, though, and is stuck making a lame appeal to the "original eleven" thing, which makes no sense, since there's no way she's going to care about that. If she could find someone who didn't hate her, she wouldn't care if they were just shipped in here in a crate after being dug up in the Canadian Rockies. She knows everyone hates her, so she's not going to act in solidarity with them. Jen tells us that she doesn't trust Joe anyway.
