Daniele's doing her ablutions, and Dick comes in to try to have a talk, but his daughter's totally freezing him out. Which, given his opening gambits include pointing out that her tag is poking out of the top of her pants, isn't hard. "Typical Daniele," he DRs. Back in the bathroom, he tells Daniele that he's never felt so much like he was entering a group of people who didn't like him immediately. Daniele cuts him a skeptical glance, and I agree that that's pretty tough to believe. She then just tells him to try and be more relaxed, like everyone else in the house is. You know, like Joe and Dustin. Dick says he thinks things are going to divide along gender lines, so hey, why not start campaigning for each other? "I would die for my daughter, without thought," Dick boasts in the DR room. I'm sur he means that to me a highly emotional statement, but I suspect that the list of other things Dick would do without thought is a very long one. Daniele in turn DRs that she's okay with them having each other's backs, and she'll see how things go.
Kail starts talking about the nomination process, and how she could be pissing off more than the two people she nominates. Because there could already be several other alliances that she doesn't even know about yet, especially if other people have jumped the gun on that as much as she has. In the HoH room, she and Mike talk about how hard it is when there are still so many people. "Especially when three of them are not eligible," Mike says, like the fact that Dick, Dustin and Jessica are automatically safe doesn’t narrow it down helpfully. And then there are the three other people in her alliance, which leaves seven potential evictees. That's not that many for the first week, okay? Mike advises her to just nominate people who did poorly in competitions. Kail's thinking she maybe wants to put up Joe, because he's such a competitor and because the editors have to come up with some kind of suspense.
Eric reminds us that he is "America's Player," and then we get to see him doing a hilarious chicken walk in the yard for the entertainment of several other houseguests. Really, it's a lot funnier than it has any right to be. Then the announcer tells us what Eric's first assignment is: "To reveal his soft side by making up a traumatic story about his past." So guess what all we get to vote on? Who Eric tells the story to. Okay, boring. This America's Player thing sucks. Eric deserves better.
