Shannon and Will lounge outside and discuss the latest buzz: that the house might evict Will just to piss Shannon off. "Why would they do that to me?" Shannon wonders. Um, because everyone dislikes you? I don't know.
Hardy takes Monica into the HoH room and plies her with strawberries and barbecue potato chips. A man after my own heart! He broaches the possibility of Monica voting for Will, so that Hardy, can cast the deciding vote. Monica says that she'll think about it, but then agrees that she has no problem voting for Will. I don't know why they're showing all this, when it turns out that no one votes for Will after all, and it's never explained why the plans changed. Whoops, should I have not mentioned that part, yet? Sorry.
Oh, gross. Will and Shannon decide to go out on "a date" before one of them gets voted out of the house. I can't even deal with this, what with all the vomiting. From me, not them. Blah blah, the two of them beautify, and Nicole makes them dinner (which is very nice of her), and Krista and Mike act as wait staff, and Shannon wears this teeny, tiny black dress, and they sit on the patio and schmoop. "[Shannon] has made me a softer, more caring person," Will says in the Big Blue Chair of the Delusionally Whipped. "I know that's hard to believe," he finishes. I believe it. Will is a softer, more caring person in comparison to Shannon. Will muses that his relationship with Shannon has made him believe that there are more important things in life than money and fame. Poor Will. He's all Mr. Love Is a Many-Splendored Thing, and Shannon is all Ms. Love The One You're With.
We see the first vote. It's Mike. He votes to evict Shannon. He raps. We're not going there.
Next, Julie explains that Hardy and Mike are both "smitten" with Krista. I can understand this: Krista is really cute, and she's got that nifty accent, and she's way more approachable than Shannon. Hardy says in a voice-over that Krista is sexy, funny, and attractive. He doesn't mention that, according to Tuesday's episode, he also doesn't entirely trust her. Mike admits that he, too, is warm for Krista's form. In the bedroom, Mike tries to get Krista to spoon with him. His pleading is actually pretty amusing. Krista restrains herself and remains in her own bed, but later, she kisses him in the yard. It's beyond me why she would kiss Mike rather than Hardy, but, you know....different strokes and all. I also think she's dead drunk.
Julie's talking to the houseguests now. They talk about HoH for a bit; Krista thinks that Hardy did a great job, and everyone agrees that it's a tough position to be in. Nicole reiterates that she really, really, really wants HoH. Nicole's hair looks completely bizarre -- it's all sticking up out of the top of her head -- but her camouflage-print mini-skirt is really cute. Julie then turns to Bunky and Kent, and asks them to explain their relationship. Bunky explains that he's been looking for a Sugar Daddy for quite a while. Kent says that Bunky "is a lot like his former husband." Hee! Then Kent and Bunky say some very nice things about each other and how much they like each other and how super each thinks the other is. Those two crazy kids! I love them. Blah blah, Shannon tells Julie that everyone in the house got along swimmingly for the last couple of days, and that there had been very little tension in the house. The viewing audience snorts. Will, for his part, admits that this past week has been very tough. "These are dangerous days," he says, and admits that the toughest part for him has been realizing that his girlfriend is totally insane. I mean, the toughest part for him is being bored. Everyone nods. Julie finds it hard to believe that the week has been tension-free. Shannon backs down a bit and agrees that the beginning of the week was iffy, but that the last couple of days have been fine. Hardy pipes up to say that, while he doesn't completely see eye-to-eye with Shannon, he agrees that the past two days have been okay because everyone has been on their best behavior. They realize it's all just a game, he says.
