After a very slow start to the day, things heat up as the Jeff/Jordan/Russell/Michele final four deal starts to fall apart.
Today’s wake up call comes at 9:30 a.m. Everyone gets up to change their batteries, then heads back to bed. Literally everyone sleeps all morning.
Michele is the first person up at 12:25 p.m. Jordan follows her minutes later. Jeff gets called to the Diary Room and Russell gets up to talk to Michele. Russell and Michele talk about the tension they feel between them and Jeff and Jordan and they want to talk about it. They want to go to the HOH to have a meeting with Jeff and Jordan. Russell is going to tell them that he voted for Jessie to stay and that he was after Jeff, but no longer is. They want to go to the final four with Jeff and Jordan, then fight it out.
Russell says he is going to work out for half an hour, take a shower, then they will have the meeting. Michele goes inside and eats White Castle cheeseburgers with Jeff and Jordan. Both HOH keys have been locked in the HOH room.
Natalie and Kevin are awake in the red bedroom where Natalie is filling Kevin in on her conversation with Jeff and Jordan last night. Natalie says she told Jeff and Jordan that if she wins HOH she will put Michele and Lydia up, but she only said that to stay safe, she wants to put Jeff and Michele up, with Jordan as a replacement. Natalie offers Kevin a final two deal and he takes it.
Natalie and Kevin get up and join the others in the kitchen and backyard. Natalie wants to take her braids out, but needs to go ask the Diary Room for permission because they cannot change their appearance without asking them first.
Russell, Kevin and Lydia talk about their past dating experiences. Natalie joins them outside and Producers tell her to treat her microphone with respect. (I have no idea what she was doing with it). They are still talking about relationships, past and present. Russell brings up how tough his sisters are, so the conversation switches to their families.
Jeff is sleeping in the pool room. Jordan just got her HOH camera and goes outside to take photos. Jeff gets up to join in the pictures. While taking photos, Russell pulls Lydia into the pool, so she takes her unitard off to let it dry out.
After having fun taking photos, Jordan and Michele go up to the HOH room. Michele starts immediately in on Russell. She says he keeps acting weird and wanting to talk to her privately. Jeff comes into the room and Michele starts trashing Russell to Jeff. She tells Jeff that Russell wants to work out with Jeff to tire him out for the competitions. Michele says Russell makes her uncomfortable. Jordan says that if one of them wins the POV, they should use it, but Michele says they need to pull Russell into a meeting to see if he is really on their side. Jeff says if they have a meeting with Russell right now, he will just deny everything. Jeff has bought Natalie’s lies last night and says they need to vote Lydia out if the nominations stay the same. Michele is worried about the other side winning HOH. Jeff says he thinks they can swing Natalie to their side. Michele says if it is just her and Jeff left in the HOH, she will throw it to him because she does not want blood on her hands. Jeff says he will take it if she does not want it.
Jeff questions Michele on when Russell started to turn against them because it does not make sense to him that Russell would turn on them after he saved him. Michele just giggles and does not really answer. Jordan wonders why Russell would want to break up their final four deal. Michele says Russell was talking about getting them out next week and not going to the final four with them. Jordan says to vote Lydia out if the nominations stay the same and they will gain an ally in Natalie.
When Michele leaves the room. Jeff and Jordan begin questioning their belief in Natalie. Jeff says Natalie told them the same exact things Kevin told them. Jordan wonders if this was a plot against them. Jeff says “Then we got got.” Jordan says “Natalie’s not really known to be a liar, she’s straightforward.” Jeff hopes they are making the right decision and feels they are because Russell is not on their side. Jeff says the Diary Room keeps telling him that Russell is on their side and if they say it again, he is going to tell them to “save it.”
Russell goes to Michele, Jeff and Jordan and offers to answer any questions they may have about him. Russell explains that he voted for Jessie to stay because he wanted to keep his word and gain Jessie’s vote in the Jury. Jeff says that the plan could have backdoored if Kevin had flipped his vote. Russell says he kept his word to Casey and did not vote him out and he kept his word to Jeff and put Ronnie up. Michele and Jordan are not saying a word. Jeff grills Russell on hearing the Russell wants him out. Russell denies it and says it is the other side’s last plea. Jeff says he knows it is their last plea, but he did hear it.
Jordan pipes in that she heard it too. Russell says that does not make sense because if he did that, he would be hurting himself. Russell says there is nobody on the other side of the house that he can get along with. Jordan brings up that Russell wants to tire Jeff out so he cannot win an endurance competition and that he and Michele are planning a final two. Michele laughs. Jordan says Russell says that she and Jeff are dead weight. Russell says none of that makes sense and the other side of the house will say anything they can to get Jeff and Jordan mad at him.
Jeff says “That’s all we heard, but it doesn’t make sense to me. I think it would be a stupid move.” Russell says the other side knows they have a shot at HOH and are playing hard to stay and win it. Russell talks about Ronnie having an alliance with Jessie and gets surprised when Michele tells him Chima was in on that alliance. The conversation goes back to Russell voting for Jessie to stay and Jeff is not happy about it. Jeff says he put his neck out to save Russell, then Russell votes to keep the person who wants Jeff out. Russell is trying to defend his move, but says he would do it differently now knowing that Jeff is taking it as a slap in the face.
Russell says he has not been talking to anyone all week. They tells him Michele has been sleeping in the same room with him and they had to have talked. Russell asks Michele “Have I ever said that I wanted to vote Jeff out?” Michele replies “Well, we did say a lot of stuff.” Russell says he cannot win if one of the other side goes to the finals with him. He would be happy with any of the four of them winning the game and wants to go to the final four with them. Jeff tells Russell he hopes Russell is being honest with them. Russell says he could have lied about his vote for Jessie, but he wants to be honest with them. Jeff thanks him for it, but tells him he already knew about the vote.
Jordan says she still feels someone is lying. She does not want to say that either Michele or Russell are lying to them, so she asks Jeff to explain why she feels someone is lying. Jeff does not want to say it either, so he just says that someone is lying. Jordan tells Russell that she is going to be very upset if Russell wins HOH and puts them up. Russell says if he put them on the block, then the other side would have the numbers. Jordan turns to Michele and asks her if she has something to say. Michele says people have been trying to turn her against them and she is “just going to plug my ears.”
Jordan says “If one of you puts me up next week, I will stab you.” Russell tells her she cannot say that. Jordan says “I’m just saying.” Russell says “Jordan, you can’t say that.” Michele says “You do that and you will be on the Chima train express.”
Jeff goes outside to smoke and asks Kevin how he can catch Russell in a lie. Jeff then tells Natalie about the conversation with Russell. Natalie says she is not lying.
Jordan asks Russell and Michele to leave because she wants to take a nap.
Jeff goes back to the HOH room to talk to Jordan alone. Jordan says she thinks Michele and Russell are working together against them and she believes Natalie and Kevin. Jeff says it does not make sense that Michele and Russell would be going after them. They talk about getting Russell and Michele out, but think the other side wants Michele out. They talk about all the possible ways things can go, then Jordan tells Jeff he has to hang in until he cries because Russell is not going to give him the HOH. They decide they are going to confront Michele and Russell and out Michele to Russell and see what happens.
Jordan goes outside and gets Michele so they can confront Russell. When Jordan has Russell’s attention, she tells Russell that they have been hearing everything from Michele. Russell says he is keeping his promises to Jeff and Jordan and he never said he would put Jeff and Jordan up if he won HOH.
Jeff is outside now and he asks Russell how he went from fighting with Michele a week ago, to friends now. Russell says “You were always with Jordan and there was nobody else to talk to.” Russell says he did not say he was working Jeff out to get him tired, but does admit to the final two deal with Michele.
Meanwhile, Lydia, Natalie and Kevin are celebrating.
Michele is being confronted with saying Russell wants Jeff out. Michele keeps lowering her voice and says she never remembers exactly what is said. Jordan calls her out on saying it to her. Michele gains her confidence and starts yelling at Russell about making the work out comment. Russell keeps telling Jeff that it would be stupid of him to get him out now and he wants to go to the final four with their group.
Jeff calls Natalie and Kevin out to tell their lie. After telling their lie, they go back inside to fill Lydia in on how great their plan is working.
Russell is still denying and saying he has no reason to do what he is being accused of. Michele is acting as if she is very uncomfortable, but keeps the work out comment going against Russell. Russell says he never wins in any of their arguments and does not want to get into it with them. Jeff says “You are not denying or confirming any of it.” Russell denies all of it.
Jeff and Jordan are trying to get Michele to pin point a specific incident so they can confront Russell with it, but Michele is rambling and not being of much help. She keeps bringing up the work out comment. Jordan tells Michele “If you would have never come upstairs and told us all this stuff, we wouldn’t be having this conversation and we’d be final four.” Michele is getting flustered as Jeff and Jordan question her. They think she is twisting things and they ask her if Russell’s comments were serious or joking. Michele keeps saying “I don’t remember.” Jeff says “When you say I don’t remember, you’re lying.”
Russell says that he did say he would go after Jeff after the final four and that seems to settle things down. Jeff and Jordan are telling Michele that they do not want to throw Russell under the bus if he did not do anything. They say it makes sense that Russell would want Jeff out after the final four. Russell calls Jeff a stud and says he cannot win against in the final two.
Jeff wants to patch things up so they have their final four solid. Russell says “I never wanted to put you guys up until the final four.” Jeff and Jordan say that is understandable. Jordan says the four of them need each other right now and they can wait until the final four to stab each other in the back.
Russell reminds Jeff that he warned them that everyone goes up to the HOH and tells different stories, which makes it difficult to figure out what is really the truth. Jeff says Michele comes up to them four times a day with a different story, but he is willing to forgive and forget. Michele tells Russell “You said to me that you have to win every single one from here on out.” Russell says “No, I didn’t,” and then he says he is tired of arguing.
Jeff says it is hard being aligned with someone who is lying. Jeff turns to Jordan and asks “What do you think?” Jordan says “I don’t know.” Jeff says “What? Are you just going to stand there and look cute?” Jeff says none of them are going home this week and they are sticking to their final four and if any of them come after him, he will go after their family when he gets out.
They hug it out and Jeff tells Michele “No more stories.” Jeff tells them not to tell the other side anything about what has just happened. They are all friends now and that is all anyone needs to know.
Michele tries to bring up something else, but Jeff tells her to “Shut up!” He says for them all to sit down and relax and have a good time. They all swear on someone close to them that they will not go after each other. Jeff swears on his parents, Russell on his dad, Jordan on her family and Michele on her dogs.
Their conversation switches to who from the other side is going home this week. Jeff and Michele want Lydia out. Russell says Lydia is defeated and Natalie is still playing. Jordan is torn between the two. They come to an agreement to vote Lydia out.
Natalie and Lydia are playing cards inside without talking.
When Russell goes inside, Michele tells Jeff that Russell set her up. They go inside and Jeff finds Jordan and they talk alone. Jeff asks Jordan what she thinks and they both decide that both Russell and Michele are lying. They hope Natalie does not think they are against her now and Jordan plans to tell Natalie tonight that she is safe this week.
Michele is making spaghetti and meatballs. Jeff and Natalie are shooting pool. Russell and Jordan are sitting together outside. Russell tells Jordan that this is the fourth time Michele has been called out and says she does not remember.
Jordan goes inside and helps cook dinner with Michele and Natalie. Lydia is in the Diary Room. Jeff and Russell are shooting pool. When Russell and Jeff are finished with their pool game, Natalie joins Jeff for another round. Jeff fills Natalie in on their conversation with Russell and Michele and tells her that both of them are lying to some degree. Jeff tells Natalie that she is safe this week. Natalie asks how she can repay him if she wins HOH, and Jeff tells her to do whatever she wants.
Natalie goes into the red bedroom so Lydia can take her braids out and put in larger ones. Lydia wants to know what is happening and if it is to their favor. Natalie tells her it does not look like it will be to their favor, but will not give any more details. They discuss the POV and when it will happen tomorrow. Natalie explains what a fast forward is and how they do everything live in one hour. Natalie then tells them that Jeff told her that Russell admitted to getting Jeff out at the final four, but not next week. Kevin said “Oh,” and sat there in silence.
Kevin and Natalie go out to get something to eat. Lydia stays in bed. Natalie whispers to Kevin that they are both safe this week.
Natalie gets Russell alone for one minute and trashes Michele to him saying “You aligned yourself with that?”
Lydia gets up and joins everyone for dinner.
Michele goes to the Have Not room to be alone. She seems very depressed. Jordan is in the Diary Room and everyone else is outside.
Michele gets up and goes around cleaning the house. Natalie breaks her microphone and everyone teases her about being sent home. Natalie goes into the storage room to get another one and finds big buckets filled with something. She carries them outside.
Natalie reads the rules “They must be colored or you cannot keep them. They cannot stay white. They cannot be worn during the live show.” They are getting to tie dye shirts. The other rules are that they cannot have tie dye fights and cannot make shout outs or other messages. They are all excited about it. Lydia says she is really good at this. Jordan is still in the Diary Room. There is only one V-neck shirt and Jeff wants it, but Lydia has it. When Jordan comes out and asks Lydia to make one for her, Lydia offers to give her the V-neck one because Jordan has been nice to her all week.
Lydia is in an odd mood tonight. She is running the tie dying and snapping at a joking manner at Jeff, Kevin and Natalie. Lydia is running out of dye because she is using so much and she wants to dye to people outside have. She is doing shirts in the bathroom while another group does their outside. Natalie tells Lydia that she needs to share the colors. Lydia wants the yellow the other group has and Natalie goes outside and tells them that Lydia wants their yellow.
Jeff and Jordan laugh together about the Diary Room sessions they each had where they were asked questions about each other. Jordan is beginning to move her stuff back downstairs and Jeff carries one of her suitcases downstairs for her to unpack.
Lydia has been making Jordan, Russell, Natalie and herself shirts. They are all pleased with her work.
When everyone is just hanging out, snacking and playing badminton, we learn that Russell is not feeling well. They think he might have heat stroke. He says he is hot and cold. Michele tells him to take some Advil. Lydia tells him to put some aloe on his sunburn and to drink Sprite.
Jeff heads to the HOH room to go to sleep just before midnight. They have all discussed going to bed early for the live show tomorrow. Jordan is already in the HOH bed with the lights off. Michele goes upstairs to wish them a good night and asks if she wins POV tomorrow, should she take Natalie off the block. Jordan says she does not care. Michele says she sprayed bug spray in the pool room and thinks Russell should not sleep in there tonight. They talk about who should go up if someone uses the Veto.
Downstairs, Kevin is telling Lydia that Natalie made a deal with the devil.
When Michele leaves the HOH room, Jeff and Jordan talk about how sad it would be if one of them left the game. Jordan pushes Jeff to take her to Hawaii with him. Jordan says “It is gross that you want to take someone you can have sex with.” She tells him it is over between them. Jeff teases her about being jealous. Jeff is playing cards on the floor and Jordan is irritated because she wants him in bed next to her. He finally quits and crawls into bed and asks her what she wants to talk about. She says she does not know. He teases her about him quitting cards for her and now she has nothing to talk about.
Jeff and Jordan talk about different ways things can work this week. They know they have to keep Russell for now. They start random pillow talk about their lives and general things.
Natalie, Kevin and Lydia have put on facial masks and are pretending to be mimes.
Jeff and Jordan stop talking and try to sleep at 1:45 a.m. Russell and Michele are already asleep in the pool room (the room that Michele said she sprayed bug spray). Natalie, Kevin and Lydia go to bed at 2:30 a.m.
