So now, the judging. It's hard to see the particulars of the scoring, but the bottom line is that they win food for every day except Wednesday -- "low-grade dog food" did not turn out to be a compliment. It turns out that the cupcakes saved themselves with presentation and creativity, but tasted terrible. And...the waffles got a perfect score, and so the house won the grill and will be having a barbecue. Danielle is happy that they'll only be on slop for the one day.
I love the fact that the silly little text-message question had to do with Gerry's hands and the salad. I just never get tired of it.
When we return from commercials, Janelle and Howie meet with Will. Janelle tells him that he's not going up -- the people she's considering for "betraying [her] alliance, and mostly Kaysar" are George, Erika, Danielle, and Marcellas. Will says that Erika does flip back and forth all the time, but he insists that Marcellas is the "cancer." I am mystified by what looks like a paper sleep mask that Will has up on his forehead during this conversation. It looks like he just got here from a six-year-old's birthday party with a "Day Of Beauty" theme. Howie makes the argument that they should keep the person they'd be most happy to try to beat at HoH, but Will insists that they can beat any of them. He wouldn't be administering that defeat personally, of course, because he'll be throwing the competition as he does all others, because who can you manipulate if you're the boss? Will says that if he and Mike and Howie and Janelle can last another couple of weeks, they'll be able to roll from there. He suggests that they cut a deal with Danielle for amnesty next week. Janelle insists that they have to include James. Will DRs that he's working on getting rid of Marcellas, because Danielle is with what appears to be the closest thing to an actual alliance that he has -- the famous "Legion Of Doom." Will also points out that they have to watch out for putting up Danielle, who "might be right about that sheep thing." There's a line you never thought you'd hear on this show, huh? I mean, in this context. Howie and Janelle persist in wanting to put up Danielle.
