Dressed like the year's top Mary Kay saleswoman, Julie declares, "Eight newbies enter, six veterans return, and one legend prematurely exits the house." At least it wasn't immaturely. Well, as far as we know.
So then the previouslies remind us that the eight newbies started out allied against the six veterans. Then returning player Rachel won HoH, and she and the other veterans brought Porsche over to their side, which Porsche almost immediately screwed up by telling Keith about it. Then Rachel nominated Keith and Porsche so that Porsche could get four weeks of immunity in the form of the Golden Key. And then Dick bailed on the game for unexplained personal reasons, sidelining Daniele, while Keith started coming unglued. Keith and Porsche threw the Power of Veto competition and stayed on the block, each thinking they had the votes to stay and earn the Golden Key, but one of them is leaving tonight. Either way, I'm cool with it. Credits now include a shot of Dick on his last walk to the Diary Room, and we're back in the studio with pink-suited Julie.
Julie verbally runs down the previouslies for us before throwing us to a replay of last night's Veto ceremony, where Brendon and Rachel left Keith and Porsche as the nominees. It's Day 9 as Keith gloats in the DR that Porsche's on her way out and he'll get the Golden Key. Porsche, of course, thinks the opposite. And Rachel DRs that at this point it's smarter not to piss more people off than you have to. Is it possible she's learned something?
Keith privately tells Keith that she's a good person and if she stays she deserves it. Porsche proves to have even less game than Keith as she says that he's kept her fooled for a week, and DRs that you can tell he's lying when his lips move. But they shake on it and part, at least, frenemies.
The non-Keith members of the Regulator alliance -- Lawon, Cassi, and Dominic -- are discussing what to do, and they decide on getting rid of Porsche. Lawon is confident that Adam and Kalia will vote his way. Cassi DRs that Keith sucks, but it might be good to keep him on their side. It's just a question of making sure they have all the newbies on their side. And how hard could that be, since the firs thing they said was that they'd all stick together?
Up in the HoH room, Rachel and Jeff are discussing the importance of keeping Porsche and having her on their side so they can stand up against the newbies. Jeff suggests bringing aboard Adam, Shelly, and Cassi. "We just need a couple things to go our way, and it's back." Jordan's also there, but she's not contributing anything to the atmosphere but carbon dioxide.
