In one of those wonderful moments that can only happen on live television not exactly involving members of Mensa, Lori has trouble finding her way the approximately one hundred feet from the house to Julie. She stands in the "yard," sort of blinking and looking around. Julie calls Lori over, and she finally finds her way in and sits down. Back in the house, all the houseguests are happily congratulating Amy on staying. Including most of the ones who voted for her.
Lori has that same tight, insane cheerfulness in her Chenterview that she has had the rest of the time. Her attitude is relatively positive and upbeat, but she really does seem kind of pinched and twitchy. In their video goodbyes, Jason, Gerry, Marcellas, and Danielle all tell her they enjoy her. Of them, I think Marcellas feels the most genuinely bad. He really does seem rather broken up about finding himself in the position of voting for her.
Julie explains that it's time for a new HoH competition. This week, it's about trivia questions regarding the house, and specifically in which room certain things are located or certain events occurred. The Goobers start dropping early, because they don't pay any attention to anything except scheming and getting a tan. My favorite part is where Eric answers that on the first night, the last group of people to enter the house slept in the kitchen. Oh, Eric, my stupid, rippled darling. When the dust settles, the last two contestants standing are Marcellas and Amy. When Amy flubs a question about where in the house you find a painting of a chair, Marcellas becomes your new HoH. He does that wonderful palms-to-cheeks, bend-at-the-knees, squinted-up-eyes thing that you would normally only see at beauty pageants. He is so excited. I must admit that I find myself wondering whether Amy threw it, or at least how disappointed she is about losing it. I mean, she knows Marcellas isn't going to put her up. Why make yourself a target and immerse yourself in the drama?
Time for the America's Choice question. It relates to what kind of contest the houseguests should participate in to decide who gets to pick the exercise equipment they get. Get it? You're not voting on what they get, you're voting on what they do to decide who gets to pick what they get. It's all very complicated, but because it holds the highest likelihood of causing injury to Josh, anyone who doesn't vote for Human Bowling is banned. Actually, the highlight of this sequence is Roddy looking directly into the camera, saying, "Big Brother, we need some dumbbells, please." When they feed me a joke like that, I really can't do anything with it. It's unsportsmanlike. There's a reason you can't use spotlights for deer-hunting.
