More musings: Jen says that Kail is a liability to her now, because she can't tell Kail anything without fearing that it's going to get out to the whole house. Jameka goes along with Mike's talking points by saying that his performance during the Veto Competition proved that a commitment from Mike is good to the end. Daniele derides Kail's "sloppy gameplay," like this is fucking golf or something. Nick thinks Kail could hurt him in the long run. Jameka thinks Kail could help her in the long run. Daniele thinks that Mike is smarter than he gets credit for, and that they should get him out while they can. Blah blah blah.
After commercials, it's time, for some reason, for a clips package on Jen. She's still in her unitard as Dick tells her, outside, that the way she flaunts her body makes her seem shallow, and asks how the people who know her would respond to the way she's acting in the house. She replies that they're probably asking each other, "Who is that?" Then we meet Anita, Jen's mom, who looks pretty young to have a kid Jen's age. "When Jennifer was a kid, she was not like that," says Anita. ...Uh, I hope not. It's kind of upsetting to think that a nine-year-old would wear a unitard as a halter. We get a high-school yearbook photo of Jen featuring her original nose as Anita says that Jen got straight "A"s in high school and took a double major in college -- Early Childhood Education and Architecture, because Jen plans to get a job designing day care centers, I guess? (Anita doesn't say whether Jen graduated, though.) Anita adds that she thinks Jen made a bad first impression in the house. Jen cries about her picture on the wall in the house...and then Kara, Jen's own Karl Rove, explains that she was upset because Jen is a model, and that her photos are her livelihood. We get a few shots from Jen's portfolio (which prove, at least, that she can probably count on an FHM spread once she's out of the house). We see Jen, in the HoH room, taking down a totally normal candid shot of Jen with Anita...and then Anita admits that seeing that hurt her feelings, and that Jen is sometimes too concerned about appearances. That's very insightful, Anita. It's the kind of observation one could only make about Jen after observing her for...oh, ninety seconds would probably do it. Back to the initial conversation with Dick: he thinks Jen should let people see how smart she is, and she says it doesn't hurt her for people to think she's dumb. Oh, the classic defense of the dumb Big Brother contestant -- faking it!
