During Thursday, July 30 Live Eviction Show, the houseguests began competing to become the new HOH. Cliques have been dissolved, so everyone is playing for themselves, or whatever part of their previous alliances they wish to keep.
Jessie, as outgoing HOH, cannot compete. The rest of the group are hanging from a spinning contraption, sitting on a tiny pole, holding on to a rope. This is their graduation party, apparently.
The machine begins to spin, then they are given their diploma, which is a giant foam diploma pushed into their way, making their entire bodies slap into it as they swing by. Then it starts to rain on their party.
The first five houseguests can choose to take a graduation present from the table. They are cautioned to choose carefully, as one contains five thousand dollars.
The show is over and it takes thirty minutes for the live feeds to come back.

Natalie has a slop pass, but she still has to sleep in the Have Not room and take cold showers. After throwing a fit, Jessie accepts his fate.
