So Steven decides it's time to make a move, proposing to Jessie in private that he put Libra up as a replacement nominee. Jessie reminds Steven that he first has to get Michelle on board as the veto-holder. So Steven brings Michelle up to HoH so the two of them can suggest it to Michelle. Steven makes his pitch to Michelle that it's a safe move to put the house in position to ditch Libra, since the votes are clearly in place to get her out of there and everyone will thank Michelle for making it possible. She makes the valid point that he's not exactly an impartial adviser here. But to prove he's not motivated by pure self-interest, he suggests she veto Dan so Steven can go up against Libra for the eviction vote. That's certainly putting his money where his mouth is, which even Michelle has to give some consideration to.
As Michelle consults the memory wall, everyone seems uncertain as to what will happen. Finally she calls the Veto Ceremony. Steven makes his case first, commenting on the Brian-stank that pervades him. Clever move, that, because the only person who has more of that on him right now is the other nominee. And for his part, Dan sucks up to the "Portuguese princess from Providence." Pardon me while I vomit. But in the end it's all for naught, because Michelle decides not to use the PoV. So thanks, Michelle, for sucking all the purpose out of the last hour.
Dan DRs that Steven's going home now. Steven DRs that he's staying, "If I have to push these people's faces down in the toilet." Well, that should do it. Michelle says that she had everything to lose and nothing to gain by using the Veto. "Do I look stupid?" she asks us. I simply make an eloquent gesture. And Keesha promises to campaign for Steven. Good luck with that.
