Asked the same question, Shannon is very Zen. I'm getting the impression that Will is far more enamoured with Shannon than she is with him, and I'm actually feeling rather bad for him, too. What in the name of God is wrong with me?
More schmoopiness. Night Vision Shannon whispers to Night Vision Will that "if things go well" between the two of them, she'll break up with Jim, because "obviously he's not the one." That loud screaming sound you just heard was Poor Jim Back At Home yelling in frustration and anger and then running to load his car with explosive devices and several maps of southern California.
The girls whine en masse about being forced to consume yet another week's worth of PB and J. Nicole hypothesizes that her monotonous meals are hurting her "mental well-being." Monica shares that PB and J is killing her. She can't even eat any more. In the kitchen, Bunky suggests to Hardy and Kent, in front of Nicole and Krista, that the men throw the food competition so that the women can get decent food for a week. Hardy is not at all pleased with this idea, and makes it quite clear that throwing any kind of competition "doesn't sit well with [him]." Bunky says that seeing the girls eat PB and J for another week doesn't sit will with him. Hardy, rather forcefully, reminds Bunky that they're playing a game. He points out that the boys aren't making the girls eat PB and J. "It's Big Brother," Kent points out. Hardy nods. Bunky passive-aggressives that maybe he's just more compassionate than other people in the house.
In the Big Blue Chair of Hyperbole, Bunky tells the camera that Hardy "exploded" when he suggested throwing the food challenge. That was an explosion? Hardy was pissed, but he didn't even raise his voice.
So Bunky and Hardy go into the HoH room to hash out their little tiff, and man, Hardy is one smooth operator. Bunky, naturally, is quick to apologize for whatever he could have possibly done to irritate Hardy. In the Big Blue Chair of If Anyone's Controlling This Game, It's Hardy, America's sweetheart says that he thinks Bunky is "trying to cover his ass" with everyone. Back in the HoH room, the men shake hands as Bunky agrees to try his best in the next food challenge. Hardy's like the Godfather in this scene, as Bunky is all, please don't leave a horse's head in my bed, and Hardy's all showing compassion whilst simultaneously making it clear that he's got his eye on Bunky and may, in the future, come to him needing a favor. Or something. Hardy's in control, here, is what I'm trying to say.
