The competition moves from the qualifying board to two identical boards, which Dan and Frank take position in front of as the two lowest scorers. And coincidentally, as the house's two sworn enemies. "The epic battle of round one," Frank sardonically DRs. There are no scores on these boards, just a lot of blank openings of different shapes and sizes, with a small round hole at the top center. The first person to get their ball into that hole wins that round. The bell rings and they get to work. All Dan wants to do is eliminate Frank so he'll go home this week, but Frank figures he needs to beat everyone in order to survive. And he does beat Dan, who drops his ball and is out of the HoH competition.
Then it's Jenn's turn to take on Frank. That goes exactly as you would expect. Britney loses the third round to Frank, who's getting a lot of practice at it and is improving with each round. Danielle gets smoked, and then it's Joe's turn. "I NEED TO BEAT THE MAN TO BE THE MAN," Joe DRs. Needless to say, Joe does not beat the man. Now there's nobody left to compete against Frank for HoH but Shane. Shane keeps dropping his ball while Frank focuses on getting his ball to the top once again -- which he inevitably does, winning HoH. It's going to be a long week for the rest of those losers.
Dan is confident that he's going to be nominated, but is equally confident he'll slither through the week somehow. While everyone politely congratulates Frank, Britney begs him not to make her a Have-Not. "I don't even know why we show up," Britney DRs. "Like, we should just push him into the backyard, shut the sliding glass door, and wait inside, like, eating pizza for him to come back inside with the key. It's, like, what was he, competing with people in hospice?" Only Britney can make the word "hospice" funny. Frank names Dan as the Have-Not, which is the first time that's ever happened to Dan, believe it or not. Ian figures that he's pretty likely to be Frank's other nominee, given his role in the eviction of Frank's two closest allies. Ian doesn't know that Frank doesn't even have that much respect for him.
