Post Eviction Blues
Everyone is all upset because the stranger they met twelve hours ago got voted off and it was too much for them to handle.
People are confused why Christmas didn't get voted off. They also don't know which three voted to evict Jillian. I wonder which people in the house would vote to evict the less attractive girl and keep the more attractive girl? Wonder who that could be.
Josh starts freaking out for some reason. It's way too early to be this paranoid. Way too early. He's crying. He's out of breath. He's a mess. Then he starts doling out advice to Christmas.
That's his big advice? 'Be careful who you trust'? Uhhh thanks for that super in-depth and game specific wisdom. This kid isn't long for this game.
The Oddball clique talk strategy and Megan is taking charge.
Nicole comes in the house. Everyone is super excited. Kevin sits back on the couch wondering what's going on and how these things never happened back in his day in Boston.
This competition is straight out of Legends of the Hidden temple. Teams of four have to cross a 'river' using ropes, retrieve apples then come back.
Kevin has to throw the comp since he took the 25k last episode.
Josh decides he hasn't made great relationships in the game yet and therefor it's in his best interest to severe all ties to anyone and play a selfish game. He grabs the golden apple, which guarantees him safety but throws his teammates under the bus. This helps Kevin out though because now he doesn't have to throw it.
Cody drops a "watch out, loser" as he walks by Josh with the winning apple. It made me laugh... Cody is a psycho? A childhood bully?
Cody, Matt, Jessica, and Domonique win.
Holy shit Josh is a god damn idiot. Anyone who says these words "Let me make something clear, I'm a very intelligent guy, and I'm a smart guy, and I got a brain" is actually screaming "Hey, I'm dumb!"
He outs Megan as a rat, which I don't necessarily disagree with. She has been playing the game the hardest so far, Josh picked up on it but then vocalized it like a simpleton.
Second stage of the HoH is a 1 on 1 comp. Cody vs Paul.
Post HoH Comp
Josh doubles down on his idiocracy and calls Megan out again, this time infront of the entire house.
Paul, a savvy vet, hears whats going down and says, 'nah, I'm out'.
Paul tries to break all the tension in the house by being goofy and Cody wants NOTHING to do with it.
Cody has made me laugh out loud twice this episode. He's most likely a psychopath and asshole but at least he's entertaining in a way that doesn't make me cringe. He pulls Matt and Mark aside and forms the Alpha Bro alliance.
Josh apologizes to Megan.
Megan goes to talk with Cody and make nice and he just straight up doesn't respond to the things shes saying to him. Again, I laughed. This guy is NUTS.
Cody gives us an in-depth breakdown of the team he wants to form. In summation, he wants to team up with the attractive in shape people and wants to send home all the less attractive people. High School!
Cody nominates Megan and Jillian. Why Megan you ask?
Brutal. I laughed out loud again. That's just so honest and mean. Megan just nods along like, yup, I totally get it.
It's always interesting to watch these early episodes knowing that everyone making the big moves right now wont last long. When Cody was breaking down his team and his enemies he didn't even mention Old Man Kevin. Maybe he's gonna ride that fine line and last a while. Probably not. The old people never last that long either.
Josh cracked pretty easily huh? Vanessa cracked like that every other day two season ago and she ended up going real far. I don't think Josh has it in him though.
I don't hate Paul but I'd like him to get voted off early. It would be nice for this to be a completely fresh season.
Old Man Kevin won me over a little bit with his conversation with Josh. He shot him straight and basically let Josh know he was out of line. Always nice to have cool heads.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
