Amber shares a hammock with Dustin and Carol, telling them all about her single momhood, interspersed with a weepy DR about how she wants to give her own mom -- also single -- "like, $25,000, and be like, 'here.'" I think she intends it as a gesture of gratitude. Carol DRs about how dependent Amber's kids are on her. So…maybe they should vote Amber out before her kids starve.
In the HoH room, Kail is already talking alliance with Mike. They also decide to bring Zack and Nick into their group of four. They wonder if they should approach a woman as well, and then when the camera shows them Daniele, they decide they don't trust her any more because of her earlier "conversating" with her dad. Yeah, sneaky bitch. Zach gets invited in, and Kail tells the guys to pick the fourth for their Final Four, which is her way of making them think it was their idea and not hers to select Nick. Nick says it's a good secret alliance, calling Kail "Mrs. Robinson" in the Diary Room. So now, with her alliance in place, Kail has to figure out whom to actually nominate. Speaking as a fellow thirty-seven-year-old, I suggest Nick for that "Mrs. Robinson" crack.
Commercials. Have you heard anything about this Pirate Master show? I think it looks retarded.
Time for the first food competition. Everyone sits in the living room and divides themselves into Red and Blue teams almost instantly, just based on how they're randomly sitting. When they go out into the back yard, they see two big old eight-foot-tall boxes with pumps on top marked "BIG BROTHER BUTTER" and two giant boxes of popcorn. "I don't want butter on me," someone complains, even before the game is explained. Still, it's a fair assumption. "We said 'Go, Blue!' because we're on the blue team," Jessica tells us with typical incisiveness. She also adds that Blue is mostly big guys (and Eric), while Red has a predominance of women. "It was big hair versus big bodies," Jessica adds with uncharacteristic cleverness, unaware that the DR camera had to be readjusted to accommodate her pompadour.
