Nominations coming up. Natalie feels safe for the first time in a month, Michele admits that she expects to be nominated and booted, and Jordan is 95% sure that she'll go up. Which means Jordan is 95% safe. Jeff says he feels safe as long as Kevin keeps his word. As for Kevin himself, he says his decision is completely strategic, and says it was the only choice he had.
Kevin calls everyone in for the noms and brings in the big key box with only two keys sticking out of it. I do love it when the cast gets this small. Kevin pulls Natalie's key, and Natalie pulls Jordan's. That leaves only Jeff and Michele, whom Kevin tells that he nominated them for being strong competitors. He adjourns the meeting, apologizing to Jeff. What, no apology to Michele? He's going to make her cry again.
Kevin DRs that he had to go against the deal, he's very much hoping that Jeff won't win the Veto, because if he does, Kevin's screwed. Yeah, the only way I can see Kevin surviving next week is if Natalie wins HoH, or the considerably more likely scenario of Jeff being abducted by aliens. Michele is the opposite of surprised and says she'll just have to save herself. Jordan says she feels bad for Jeff and doesn't want to see him go, because without him, she's basically a blonde Michele. Jeff DRs that Kevin went back on his word, and now it's up to him to win the Veto. And over the credits, Kevin discovers that mystery door in the HoH room that Julie mentioned on Thursday's episode, so we'll see what that's all about on Tuesday, I guess. But I think we can safely state right now that whatever it is will hurl Kevin into an agony of indecision.
