Outside, Natalie and Michele play pool, while Natalie tries to secretly line up Michele's vote to go against Russell and evict Lydia instead of Ronnie. Michele won't commit to anything, but she's not comfortable with being the deciding vote. It might cause someone to realize she exists.
The PoV competition drawing takes place. HoH. Russell and nominees Ronnie and Lydia draw Michele, Jessie, and Kevin, respectively, with Chima as the host. When they emerge from the house from the competition, all in togas and laurel crowns, they discover that the back yard has been decorated like the set of Rome, only cheaper, with a "Veni Vidi Veto" banner. Arranged around the yard are random items with large numbers of things stuck on and around them. And the players' podiums have faux-Roman versions of their names, on them, like "Kevinus" and "Lydius." I don't even want to get into it, it's too embarrassing. From a host podium shaped like a chariot marked "Chimacus," (I know, but that's the last one, I swear), Chima gives them five minutes to look over everything, so we know it's gong to be one of those Rain Man challenges where everyone has to guess how much of stuff there is. After they've had a chance to take everything in (including a rat cage you have to crawl under and stick your head up into), Chima explains the overly complicated The Price Is Right-like rules for the game, but I'm not about to sit and transcribe all that crap. The first question regards the number of jewels attached to the chariot Chima is standing in. First everyone bids, then they have to decide whether to "stay" or "fold" after hearing everyone else's guesses. Jessie is the only person who stayed with his guess, so he wins the point, even though Kevin's guess was the closest. He just can't seem to get off the ground, what with the extra weight of Lydia's hopes for her safety pinned on him.
Then they have to guess the number of arrows that are stuck in a wooden shield. Russ, Kevin, and Jessie all stay (while Ronnie continues folding, hanging back to let other people eliminate themselves), but Russell's guess is the closest, so it's his point. But Kevin's guess was the furthest off, so he's out, leaving Lydia pretty much up there alone. But then Russell wins the next point, and Lydia's out. Michele wins a point in the next round. Then a question about the number of rats in the cage comes up, which everyone knows is Michele's area of expertise (and Ronnie's, as Russell points out, but in a different way). Michele lowballs everyone to trick them into folding, and what do you know, Michele is the only one to stay with her guess, so she wins her second point, having bluffed Ronnie out of sticking with his higher (and more accurate) estimate. Next comes a question about the number of feathers in a centurion's helmet. Michele and Jessie are the only ones to stay, but Michele's guess was the closest, so she just won her second PoV in a row. Too bad she doesn't have a mud pit to dive in. She DRs about how she has the most power, being not only the veto holder but the swing vote. Ronnie's plan: figure out what it'll take to get Michele to use the veto on him. I know what it'll take: nothing Ronnie has. Still, Ronnie gets right to work on Michele in the pool room, but she's not committing to anything. Including giving him the time of day.
