Interview time! Hardly takes his expulsion with very good sportsmanship and class, but, as usual, says nothing of interest in his interview. It's all spin, spin, spin, big word slightly misused, cliché cliché. He does admit that not evicting Will was a critical error in judgment, but doesn't seem to realize that Bunky would have evicted him, too, so there you go. Cliché cliché cliché blah blah blah. Julie cues up farewell videos from his housemates, and Hardly tears up, naturally. In the video, Will repeats that Hardly is "an excellent competitor," and that he respects him as a person. It'sOnica tells Hardly that any woman who gets him will get a real "chimp." Well, I think she said "champ," but it sounded like "chimp." Either one works, really. Well. One more than the other. Nicole sobs. Hardly sobs. I yawn. Finally, Hardly says that he learned "so much" in the house, especially from Bunky, from whom he learned, he says, how to be a more tolerant person, a more patient person, a more gay person. Amusingly, when he tells Julie that he thinks Nicole will win, Julie makes this "you've got to be kidding me" face, and changes the subject, at last calling in Grandma and Brady, Hardly's brother. Get out of here, Hardly! I mean it: get out. Now.
Time for the HoH competition. At last, Julie explains the endgame. Everyone is eligible to win this final Head of Household competition, which consists of three parts, and will conclude on Thursday. At that point, the winner will evict someone on the spot. They begin phase one of the competition, and I'm a little bit nervous, and not ashamed to admit it. Well, maybe just a little bit ashamed. In this first portion of the game, Julie reads a word that one of the evicted houseguests used to describe either Will, It'sOnica, or Nicole. The houseguests need to guess which of them that word describes. Nicole groans.
