Time for the weekly viewscreen convo between Julie and the houseguests in the living room. Julie says that Dick won't be coming back, but she has a message from him, which she's been teasing before every commercial break tonight. Dick appears on the living room viewscreen, telling them all that he and his family and girlfriend are all fine, so stop worrying. I'm way ahead of him on that one. He says he never would have left if it weren't a personal emergency, but that's all he says about that. He apologizes to Daniele, saying they seem to get along best when they're playing Big Brother together, and tells the other houseguests to play hard and fight hard. As soon as he's done, Julie puts Daniele on the spot, asking her reaction. Daniele just blathers about hanging in there. After a long pause, Julie prompts, "No 'I love you?'" "Oh my gosh, that's so awkward!" Daniele bleats. Daniele says obviously she does, but mainly because she doesn't want to look like a jerk, which she even says. Julie moves on to showing them the clip package of the week's Have/Have-Not competition, focusing on Keith milk-humping his teammates (complete with slo-mo) and then asking Dominic a pointless question to which Dominic provides a pointless answer. Julie's next question is to Adam, and how he as a superfan feels about playing against the veterans. Adam talks about he and Dick both being into "METAL," but now they're competitors. Julie acts like that's the smartest thing she's ever heard.
Moving on to the pre-vote business, Julie gives Keith a chance to plead his case to the house. He tells Porsche she rocks, and tells the rest of them, "Have fun, don't take things personally, and remember it's only a game." Porsche stands up and thanks everyone and says she hopes she gets to stay. Well, that was dull. Julie says it's time for the vote. Of course the nominees don't get to vote, and Rachel will only vote if there's a tie. As always, the most certain vote is sent to the DR first, and Dominic votes to evict Porsche. Brendan votes to evict Keith, as does Jordan. Cassi votes to evict Porsche, so we're going to commercial with a 2-2 tie, for maximum suspense and commercial-watching encouragement.
