They all gather for Erika to read the scores. George's time is 24 minutes and 23 seconds. Erika's time? 1:51. Will? 3:19. Janelle? 1:00. They all react with admiration, to which Janelle responds in literally the least gracious way possible, which is to say, "I could have done better." She is the sorest winner of all time. There should be a trophy for that, only she'd be bitchy about winning that, too. Danielle's time? 1:23. Mike? 7:42. So Janelle won PoV, snore. She's the combination of the Rupert and the Terry, and you know how crazy I am about that. Danielle laughs in the DR that she has a deal with Erika not to put her up, and if she's not going up, then either Will or Mike is going up, and this makes Danielle very happy. Will DRs that he'd like to see Danielle put up. Danielle will think that she's safe, but actually, she'll go. He says it stupider than that. Erika tells us that she isn't happy with the choices in front of her. "It's a real dilemma," she says.
Later, Janelle, Danielle, and Erika chat. Janelle DRs that she needed the win, or she would have gone. She and Erika talk a little, and Janelle then adds in her diary-room session that she thinks if she can convince Erika that she (Janelle) will come after Will and Mike next week, Erika might choose to go after Danielle this week. The guys, meanwhile, are talking about Janelle, how awesome she is, "the best reality competitor [Will has] ever seen," provided you only care about competitions and not...you know, the parts of the game that Will himself is better at than anyone else. Then Mike and Will go into the storage room and jump up and down as usual, ecstatic that Janelle won veto. They're determined to get Erika to nominate Danielle even though, as Mike DRs, Danielle is Erika's best friend in the house.
Mike and Will have the big chat with Erika in which they drop the bomb that she has to nominate Danielle, no matter how much she doesn't want to. "I can't," Erika says. Mike promises that Danielle will blame him and Will, not Erika, for her booting. Erika tells us that she's "an emotional person," and her head and heart are feuding, and she's glad to have Will and Mike to straighten her out in these moments. Mike tells her that if she tries to be nice, she'll finish fourth. Will tells her this is her big moment to decide whether she can go to F5 or F2 or F3. Erika says in the DR that there's a time that you have to drop your alliances, and she's not sure yet whether this is the time. Interestingly, after Will leaves the discussion, Erika asks Mike again about the possibility of putting up Will. "No!" Mike insists. "Not at all!" Why Erika thinks that Mike would be a good source of advice on this point, I simply do not know. Erika wants to know whether Mike would take her or Will from F3 to F2. He doesn't want to commit, and he says they can always talk about this later. That's called a red flag, Erika. Take it out of neutral.
