"I knew I had a pretty good shot of winning this power of veto competition," Janelle says, and adds that since she couldn't compete, she was counting on James to win veto for her. Ugh. Elsewhere, James, Mike, and Will have a talk in which they agree that it would be very bad for James to accidentally win the veto. When Danielle comes in, Will tells her that they've all agreed to just see if they can take out Marcellas and Erika, and that way, Danielle can walk off with it. Danielle says that if they don't do this carefully and they wind up making it too obvious that they're throwing it, the alliance will be exposed. That is, of course, the risk.
Veto competition. Outside, the competitors find a whole collection of props and whatnot, all set up and ready for the game. Danielle says that she recognized the flamingos, spinning chair, and mechanical bull from past Big Brother competitions. BB2's Nicole returns to act as the host, and it turns out that she's not the only familiar face who will be returning. In this competition, they'll all watch a former player do a timed event. Then, they'll bid for the shortest time in which they think they can do the same thing. The one who bids lowest will get to try. If you do it, you get to knock someone out. If you don't, then you're out yourself.
First to appear in the yard is April, whom Howie called "Busto" last season. Her task will be to eat fifteen pieces of sushi as quickly as possible. This turns out to take her five minutes and four seconds. Poor Busto. The winning sushi bid is Will, who thinks he can eat the same amount of sushi in 2:56. He walks over to the sushi table. "We're about to show April why she's not an All-Star," he says. Will eats sushi. He tells us in the DR that he has to look like a good competitor, make Janelle think that he's trying, and keep Danielle in the game. A tall order. Will makes it through the sushi with twenty seconds or so to spare. He eliminates Marcellas, which does not please Janelle. Marcellas, unhappy that he always gets thrown out first, bitches in the DR that Will and Mike are always picking on him, and are "gayer than I am with each other." I'm not sure you want to pick that as your go-to insult, buddy. It's easy for those to backfire.
