More nomination talk from Josh. Chiara tells him to shut the hell up. "Ah laahke ever-bahdy," Amy laments. Ah, yes. The heartbreak of the softhearted skank. Inside the house, Lisa gets the keys off the wall, trying to look pensive and not really pulling it off. She mentions how hard it will be to have the nominees "verbally know" that she put them up, and I have no freaking idea what that means. It means she likes the word "verbally," I suppose. Key-placing, agonizing, yakkety blah phooey. She gathers them all at the dining room table. She says she had no choice but to be the first "bad guy," and acts like she rather regrets having had to do it (not that she didn't allow them to all kiss her ass all week). The slow and non-suspenseful nomination process takes forever, as usual, and we learn to no one's surprise that she has nominated Marcellas and Lori. Yawn. Josh wiggles like an overstimulated seal when he learns he's safe. When Marcellas realizes he's nominated, his jaw drops. "Marcellas, you are a marked man," he snarks at himself. Lisa claims that she picked Marcellas because she likes him, but nobody else does, and that she picked Lori because everybody else likes her, but Lisa doesn't. Get it? Lori cries a little in the diary room, claiming that this is the kind of thing that "just might kill ya, but makes you stronger if you handle it right." I suppose. I mean...it's not up there with malaria or anything, but I get the general idea.
Now we are forced to watch Josh congratulate himself on the progress of his plan. Oh why, oh why didn't Lisa nominate him? When will these people learn that you get rid of the hideously evil manipulator at the beginning? You at least declare your independence from him. If Lisa had split off from Josh, I think the only person who would have been stupid enough to remain loyal to Josh is Gerry. The rest of the Goobers would have gladly jumped ship. They don't like Josh, they just want an alliance to be part of. Lisa is an idiot.
Marcellas vows to remain in the game, which is good, but he refers to himself in the third person, which is so, so bad.
Saturday night, a twist is revealed! Of course, the last twist was the whole nest challenge thing, so I'm not feeling too optimistic. There's no eviction until Thursday, so get ready for some serious, serious filler. Yeah, filler!
