Lydia and Kevin are the first ones up at 7:25 a.m. and they discuss needing to eat before the Have/Have Not Competition in case they are Have Nots this week. They go right back to bed. Everyone else is still asleep. Kevin gets back up again at 9:15 a.m. to shower, and Producers announce the wake up call a few minutes later.
Everyone is getting ready for the Have/Have Not Competition. They all want to eat in case they get put on slop for the week.
Kevin keeps trying to get Lydia to talk to Chima before Chima makes her nominations. Michele is in the HOH room talking to Chima about the votes and whether or not they can trust Jessie and Natalie to vote Russell out. Chima says the problems between them have been due to Russell, so they are good again. Natalie barges in without knocking. Chima asks Natalie if Russell suspects he is going up. Natalie tells her he thinks it is a possibility, but thinks they have made up. Chima says she wants a girl to win the game.
Chima mentions how Lydia spilled to Jessie that Chima wants a girl to win, so Natalie takes that as an invitation to trash Lydia. Chima has to stop her. Chima asks Michele if she leaves her off the block, will she guarantee that she will not put her or Natalie on the block. Michele agrees. Natalie jumps all over Michele to not keeping Ronnie. Michele is defending herself, and promises not to put either of them on the block. Chima says she wants to put Russell and Lydia on the block. Before Natalie leaves the room, she tells them her loyalty is to Jessie and would never vote him out. After she leaves, Chima tells Michele “I’m choosing to trust you.” Chima goes on and on about how much she does not trust Russell.
While Michele listens to Chima go on and on about Russell, everyone else is getting up and dressed after taking short naps.
Jessie and Natalie grab Chima when she comes downstairs and Natalie starts in on how much Lydia needs to go. While they are talking in the kitchen, Jeff comes in and Chima tells him she wants to talk to him and Jordan in the HOH room after the competition.
The feeds are blocked for about an hour and when they come back on, we learn that Jeremy Piven was in the house. Everyone is talking about meeting him, hugging him and how cool it was for him to be there.
Not long afterwards, the feeds are blocked again as they have a “secret” competition. It was a luxury competition where the winners got to see a Jeremy Piven movie and the losers are the Have Nots for the week. America’s Choice for this week’s Have Nots is liver and limes. The Have Nots are Lydia, Kevin, Jeff and Michele.
Kevin talks to Chima alone for a few minutes in the HOH room. He complains that Lydia cannot forgive women, only men. Chima wants to distance herself from Jessie, thus Lydia because of her closeness to him.
Russell and Jeff bond in the Have Not room as Jeff is cleaning it. Russell wants to team up with Jeff and Jordan and go to the end with them. When Michele comes into the room, Russell leaves. Michele and Jeff talk about how sad it is that they lost.
Russell won ten thousand dollars during the competition and Jessie tells Chima that is even more reason for him to leave. Jessie wants to know if Michele is going to vote with them and Chima says she will. Jessie wants to know why Michele walks out of the room whenever he comes in, Chima says she does not know.
Natalie, Jessie and Chima take Jordan up to the HOH room to talk to her. Chima tells Jordan she is not putting her up and wants her to vote to evict Russell. Jordan agrees. Jordan says she will vote how the house votes. Natalie and Jessie lay it on thick that Russell is has been saying things behind Jordan’s back and how he was secretly working with Ronnie.
Jeff keeps hinting to Russell that he is the wizard. He keeps saying he is going to make a move soon and he asks Russell if Natalie and Jessie were on the block, would he vote Jessie out. Russell says he would.
The feeds are interrupted again for about an hour for the Nomination Ceremony. Russell and Lydia were nominated. Russell is upset that he was nominated by his own alliance. He now knows he cannot trust any of them, but goes to Chima, hugs her and tells her he understands.
Jeff tells Jordan that if he saves Russell, Russell will be on their side. Jordan does not trust Russell. Jeff keeps pushing Jordan for them to try to win Russell over to their side. Jordan tells Jeff that if he saves Russell with the POV, he will have a target on his back. Jordan has no clue that Jeff is the wizard. Jeff wants Jordan to casually ask Michele who she would vote for if Natalie and Jessie were on the block together. Jordan wants to wait until later.
Jeff hurt his toe in the competition. Jordan makes fun of his team, saying they looked like Saved by the Bell. Jeff complains that Lydia is like a child, always seeking attention and that is why she has refused to talk since the competition. Jeff keeps hinting to Jordan that he is the wizard, saying something good will happen, but she is not catching on.
Jeff finally gives in and goes up to the HOH room. Chima and Jessie console him about how bad his team was. Chima tells Jeff she wants him to vote out Russell. Chima reasons with Jeff, telling him that Jeff wanted Ronnie out because he was a rat and she wants Russell out because he is a rat. Jeff keeps cracking jokes and avoiding committing to anything. Jessie and Chima laugh at his jokes as they try to butter him up. Jeff says anyone who goes outside to talk to him gets evicted.
A few minutes later, Jessie is talking to Natalie as the play chess. Jessie says that if Jeff and Jordan were smart, they would take Russell off and put me up. Natalie says “They’re not that smart.”
Jessie is now freaking out to Chima and Natalie that Jeff has the power and will use it against him. Chima and Natalie do not think Jeff would use the power and that Jessie is just paranoid. Natalie is not convinced Jeff has the power, but Chima thinks Jeff has it. Jessie keeps getting worked up and is threatening to call people out. Natalie tells him if he does, he might as well just walk right out the door.
As Jessie keeps going on an on about his worries about the wizard, Chima says “If Jeff gets to change nominations, the what the **** am I here for?” Then she threatens that if that happens, she will freak out on the live show. She yells out to production that she will throw a fit on the live show if they do that and she will stay in the Diary Room, refusing to leave and refusing to participate in the HOH Competition. She tells them she is “dead serious.” She says if they mess with her nominations on the live show, she will take over the show from Julie Chen. She says she would tell Julie to stop talking if she tried to interrupt. Chima is called to the Diary Room and she thinks it is because of what she was just saying.
Jeff is in the kitchen making something out of slop similar to french toast. Russell asks him if he has the power. Jeff tells him “No. Don’t worry.” Russell asks “What?” Jeff says “Don’t worry.” Jeff tells Russell that Chima and her crew want Russell out.
Lydia tells Jessie that production told her to start talking again. They go outside to shoot pool. Jessie tells Lydia his theory on how he is going home this week. She does not believe it. Jessie tells Lydia that Michele told Natalie who told Jeff that Lydia was coming after him.
Lydia ran over to Jeff to clear up that misunderstanding. Jeff seems as if he does not care. He changes the subjects to liver. Lydia asks for his vote. He tells her to wait until after the POV. Jordan comes out and Lydia tries to clear up what was said about her. Jordan suggests she go to the source and talk to Michele, then Natalie. Lydia leaves to talk to Michele.
Michele tells Lydia that she must have misunderstood what Lydia was saying when she overheard her, but she did repeat it. Natalie finds out Jessie told Lydia and gets mad at him. Jessie said he thought it was funny because Lydia was refusing to talk. Natalie said “What’s so humorous about starting a fight?”
Michele went to Jordan to explain that she thought she heard Lydia saying it, and then goes to ask Kevin and Natalie about it.
Jordan is confused about what is going on right now. She cannot figure out who was supposed to have said what. All she knows is someone said something about getting Jeff out.
Jessie is freaking out about the wizard power. Chima suggests they keep Jessie out of the communication loop while he is so freaked out and acting unpredictably. While Natalie and Jessie argue, Lydia and Michele have made their amends and are hanging outside together.
Jessie goes to Lydia, who says it is all okay because Michele misheard her and Jessie on the couch and everything is okay now. Jessie goes back and yells at Natalie for blowing it all out of proportion. Natalie says “Thanks for creating an enemy for me.” Jessie gets mad and throws his protein powder bottle down the hallway. It spills out. Jessie is losing it as he slams open the storage room door to get the broom to sweep up the mess. When Jessie puts the broom back, he punches the garbage can.
Everyone is arguing over simple little things. Russell and Michele about the sexual dysfunction comments, Lydia and Jessie over her not expecting him to keep her in the game, and so on.
Chima is yelling at Lydia and Natalie because Michele is looking like a liar now because she thought she overheard something and confided in them, and they used it against her.
Russell and Michele’s argument is getting more heated, so Jeff pulls up a chair to watch. Russell says he has to confront Michele because he is leaving this week. Michele says it is Russell’s fault for having to have a public meeting, and Chima would have been fine with him if he just let it go. Russell says he did nothing wrong. Michele apologizes for the comments that led to this argument. Michele says Russell has to keep bringing up that comment every day and over five hundred times. Michele cusses Russell out, then goes inside.
Meanwhile Chima has been cussing Jessie out for selling out Michele. She is telling Natalie that Jessie cannot be trusted because he is so paranoid over the stupid wizard power.
Michele comes inside and gets consoled by Chima and Natalie. Chima says this is why she wants a woman to win. Michele says it was weird how Jeff just sat there and watched her and Russell argue.
Jeff goes inside to fill Jordan in on the fight between Russell and Michele. Jeff says Michele is going crazy. Jordan asked Jeff if he has the mystery power. He says “I wish.”
Chima, Natalie and Michele are talking about the all girl alliance. Chima says they cannot bring Lydia and Jordan in until Jeff and Jessie are gone. Natalie says they cannot ever bring in Lydia. They talk about how Lydia only goes up to the HOH room if it is a guy.
Jeff is telling Jordan how crazy Michele is. Jordan says Michele says she will never put them up.
Kevin joins the group in the HOH room and they talk about Russell’s reaction to being nominated and they worry how he will react after the POV. Michele admits to the group that she has a final two deal with Russell. They say Russell has final deals with everyone but his own alliance. Michele tells them Russell was the one who voted for Casey.
Jeff tells Jordan that if he makes a bold move in the house, it will affect her as well and wants to know she will be okay with that. She says any move they make, they need to make together. He pulls her closer and she laughs at the pun.
Chima, Kevin, Natalie and Michele wonder if Jeff threw the HOH because he has the power. Jeff went out on his own question.
Jeff and Jordan are making out and Jordan stops because she thinks the microphones are picking up the sounds. She says with the cameras and having to be under the covers makes her feel awkward.
Chima is offending half of America by saying that the Blue States are reading books, not watching the show. She said the Red States will not vote for a brown person to win anything. Kevin brings up Jeff again and says Jeff hinted to a bad, dark background and they think it may have been mob related. Chima jokes about picking Jessie’s team for the Have/Have Not Competitions because he cares more about food than the money.
Jeff and Jordan are kissing again. As Jeff is stroking her face, she tells him his hands remind her of her dad.
Back in the HOH room, Michele is telling everyone that she likes Jeff and would not go after him. She says she only trusts Jeff, Jordan and Chima. She does not know about Natalie and Natalie says she feels the same way about Michele.
When Michele comes downstairs, Russell starts yelling at her for running up to the HOH. He yells”Ronnie was on point on everything he said about you. Psycho! Absolutely psycho!” Michele says she is not psycho, but for him to have fun with that one. Russell keeps yelling at her, telling her she needs to take her pills and calling her psycho. He says “Jeff even thinks you’re crazy.”
Michele goes back up to the HOH room and they talk about how Russell is attacking her because he cannot attack Chima. Chima says Lydia threatening to cut herself is the same as Russell’s outbursts.
Russell and Jessie are laughing about the fight and Jessie says if he wins POV, he will take Russell off so Chima will have to put Michele up.
Jessie then goes in to talk to Lydia and Kevin and says he tried to get Russell’s side of the story, but Russell was delirious and he could not follow what he was saying.
Chima is working herself up into a frenzy again about the possibility of Jeff replacing her nominations. She says if that happens, she will sing, swear, get a penalty nomination, be evicted and lose her stipend. She says “If they **** with my HOH , why am I here? My stipend, they can have it!” Chima insists the Competitions are rigged.
Just before Michele leaves, she says she would like to keep Jessie safe, but does not want it to get back to Lydia. Natalie says it will not. Natalie and Chima go to sleep after she leaves. It is 3:30 a.m.
Lydia and Jessie stay up talking for another half an hour .
