America's Vote: for the next competition (not this one, obviously, since it's already over), we get to vote on what the Have-nots will have to eat: sauerkraut and seaweed, cabbage and cocktail weenies, or pickled eggs and pickled herring. Yeah, I think I'll abstain.
Filler scene about how Chicagoan Jeff can't pronounce "bully" or "bull."
Jeff, Casey, Laura, and Jordan head up to the HoH room to try to convince him to put up Russell. Ronnie's considering backdooring him instead, but they don't like any plan that would result in any of them nominated as pawns. That may just be too damn bad.
Ronnie shares their idea with Jessie and Natalie, who act open to it, but then Jessie warns Russell what Ronnie's thinking. Russell is smart enough to be worried, and not take Jessie's reassurances at face value. In fact, if anything, I would suspect that being reassured by Jessie must be one of the most terrifying experiences a Big Brother houseguest could endure.
A whole commercial break later is when Ronnie looks over the Memory Wall to consider his nominations. Laura interviews that she's nervous, and suspects it'll either be her or two other people from her side. Casey feels the same way. Russell tells the DR that Ronnie's in for a fight if he puts up Russell. As for Ronnie himself, he frames his choice as shaking up the house or playing it safe. Because he's the first HoH ever to face that choice.
