We come back to Ashley's vote to evict Janelle, making its all but a foregone conclusion. And for that matter, it's not looking good for Joe next week either. Unless of course Joe wins Head of HA HA HA HA. Britney sadly says she's voting to evict her favorite person in Big Brother history. That's the necessary five, but as always, everyone else has to vote. Shane votes for Janelle, clean-shaven for once and wearing a suit jacket and his hair like it's third-grade picture day. Dan gets his Eddie Haskell on as usual with Julie, calling her Mrs. Chen and saying she looks ravishing, only to be told that Mrs. Chen is Julie's mother. Dan says he has to evict Janelle, and Ian adds his vote to the blindside landslide.
Once he's back in the living room with everyone else, Julie gets on the viewscreen and tells Janelle she was evicted on an eight-to-one vote. Quiet hugs all around, with no fireworks like some of Janelle's previous exits. She walks out of the house to a cheering studio like a conquering hero in an electric blue dress. "Here we are again," Julie greets her as the remaining eleven houseguests mill around inside quietly.
In the exit Chenterview, Julie tells Janelle she kept it classy, and remarks on her surprise at being nominated. She wonders why Janelle doesn't seem surprised to be here now, and Janelle figures everyone wanted to backdoor her, "because I'm a strong player." Julie asked her why she hit the reset button, given her chances of winning the coaches' prize. "Because I wanted to play," Janelle shrugs. And look how that worked out. Julie wonders why Janelle wanted Frank out -- and still does. Janelle confesses to being scared of him, and admits that it might have hurt her game, even though she wasn't the only one. Julie brings up that coaches' summit in the HoH room and asks why she hesitated when Mike suggested putting up two of her players, Joe and Wil, up against each other. Janelle claims she was protecting her players, and also didn't want word to get out that she'd be willing to ditch them so easily. Because that might have resulted in her eviction.
