Dick DRs that he's proud of Danielle, and Amber immediately goes to work on her to put up Jen instead. Danielle is not any more a fan of Jen than anyone else is. Let's hope Amber remembers to thank God for making Jen such an asshole.
Eric, America's Player, goes into the DR to read his assignment for the week. Eric's pretty glad to hear that all he has to do is make up a traumatic story to tell to Kail. Because that's whom America "voted" to see him lie to. "This is going to be a cakewalk," he tells us. No argument here. Eric asks Kail to meet him up in the HoH room, and prepares himself by squirting some of every kind of contact lens solution he owns into his eyes before heading up. Kail doesn't just take the bait; she's ravenous for it, saying she knows something's been bothering Eric. "I could tell yesterday. You were quiet," she says perceptively. Eric's story is about a girlfriend of his in high school whom Danielle reminds him of, and who had an eating disorder. Kail figures that Erik has been deeply affected by seeing Danielle put on slop. Still, Eric can't stand how easy this is, so we're treated to a whole bravura weepy montage of him going on and on to Kail about his skinny girlfriend, blah blah blah, complete with a sad cello and everything. Poor dumb Kail tells us in the DR that "Eric is a very sensitive guy...He cares too much." Eric returns to the Diary Room and, over a little graphic of the words "TASK COMPLETED" next to a checked box, he says he looks forward to working with us in the future. Okay, except that wasn't work.
And now we're back with Dustin and Joe, a storyline I had completely forgotten to miss. Dustin asks for Joe's respect. Joe says he's trying, but that Dustin is his "arch-nemesis" and all, and having him here kind of screws things up for him. Dustin says that he's in the same situation, and it's clear that Joe has literally never thought about that. He adds that this gives them a chance to work things out. He says something heartfelt about Joe's family, which Joe appreciates, and then DRs to us that it's to his advantage to keep things civil with Joe. Okay, back to the back burner with you two!
