The Reign of Renny Begins: Renny's rule as the newest HoH had one BB blonde (Keesha) happily unpacking her bags and the other adjusting the new target on her back. "I know I'm going to be placed up on the block this week," a resigned April said, "I'm not going to act stupid and be blindsided. I already know this is where the game begins." And did the games begin when the 53-year-old BB den mother channeled the Godfather, revealing a ruthless, calculating side by first driving a wedge between Memphis and Keesha and then calling Michelle to her side to "reel her in and have her start trusting me."
The Showmance Turns Serious: From the lawn, to the couch, to the bed, wherever Ollie and April went, Jerry seemed to follow. But even with Jerry lurking around every corner, Ollie and April found enough alone time to take their showmance to the next level. What followed was a montage of BB PDA that was almost as bad as a week of slop. It culminated in Ollie half-heartedly proposing marriage to April. It was such an unbelievable moment, April turned to the night-vision cameras that she knew were recording their every move and say, "You got that on TV, right? He just proposed to me." Come and Get It!: Only the producers of BB could take a beloved schoolyard game like Rock, Paper, Scissors and turn it into something masochistic. With a week of slop on the line for the losing team, the rules were simple: contestants from two three-person teams (Dan, April and Michelle on one side; Memphis, Ollie and Jerry on the other) had to play a guessing game--with teams winning points for eating (and holding down) either slop, pig ears or cooked crickets. But in the end, it was all about the pig ears. Michelle used her well-documented love of pork --the other white meat!--to her advantage, fooling a befuddled Ollie by wolfing down a plate of pig ears. But the game was ultimately decided by April. The vegetarian (since the age of 13) ditched her PETA card as she valiantly suppressed her gag reflex by shoving the crispy pig ears into her mouth en masse. (Watch the clip.)
The Ollie-Pop Guild: Set for another week of slop, the mood of the blue team matched their uniform bow ties. But word came down that the viewing public had magnanimously voted to give the trio of Ollie, Jerry and Memphis one additional food item for the week: lollipops! While Memphis and Jerry looked perplexed, Ollie couldn't have looked happier--unless he could take back his earlier marriage proposal to April. Ollie may not drink or smoke, but one thing is for sure, "Ollie loves his lollies!" It's a good thing too, because after the appearance of a crow on the compound that had the preacher's son scampering for cover, it's clear that Ollie is terrified of all invertebrates, heights and now birds. Seems like the only things Ollie does love are sweets and conniving blondes from Arizona.
Colonel, You've Been Served: The problem for HoH Renny was that she had three she wanted to evict, but only two nominations at her disposal. "The Trio," as Renny repeatedly referred to Ollie, April and Jerry, had to be broken up, but not at the risk of next week's inevitable BB backlash. In the end The Colonel and April were left on the outside looking in. Renny's (somewhat confusing) explanation: April is "the most tough-cookie woman I've ever met," she said. As for Jerry (who had put the salon owner up for eviction during his reign as HoH), it was all about revenge, it was that simple: "It was payback time, for making my life hell for eight days," Renny said.
With the PoV up for grabs on Tuesday, Jerry has an uphill battle if he wants to stay alive in the household. BB's oldest contestant has done little to endear himself to his housemates. He's put Renny up for eviction, dubbed Dan a "Judas," and almost came to blows with Memphis after calling him a "womanizer." It seems Jerry's days on the show appear to be numbered. --Reagan Alexander
