Daniele Donato and Dominic Briones

Both Dominic and Adam thought they were nominated as pawns
, but after a mad scramble
to shake up the house, did Dominic shoot himself in the foot before Thursday's Big Brother
"If Dominic goes home tonight I'll be furious," Daniele told Brenchel, trying to save the second-in-command of "Daniele's Army." But that backfired when Brenchel and Jeff and Jordan reunited and turned on their fifth alliance member, putting Dominic in the hot seat going into Thursday's vote.
But first, Kalia – the Carrie Bradshaw wannabe, remember? – made her presence known in the house for the first time since whining about her shoulder during a Have/Have Not competition.
"I'm not in the loop anymore. At this point I feel like I'm playing the game by myself," Kalia told Brendan, trying to insert herself as a major player, only to be yelled at for trying to be a "floater."
"I studied rocket science. You are an all-time floater," Brendan told her, making the obvious correlation between science and the game.
But it was his final comment, "Hey, do your dishes," that sent Kalia over the edge and started a fight that ended in a house meeting where the slop hit the fan.
"Get everybody in here," Jordan called out to the house. "Were going to dish everything out."
And while Kalia initially took the brunt of Jeff and Brendan's anger, soon their attention turned to Daniele.
"I didn't come here to be part of a dictatorship," Daniele said of how Brenchel, Jeff and Jordan have been calling all the shots this season. "I came here to play the game."
"Wow, you guys are serious gamers," host Julie Chen interjected with the most unnecessary comment of the night.
In the end, Dominic paid the price for being "eaten up by the venus-fly-Donato," and was voted out of the house by a vote of seven-to-one, with Daniele being the only one "not afraid to go against the king and the queen."
Next, the house turned their attention to the Head of Household competition, an endurance challenge.
With the Golden Key and Duo twists out the window, "It's a whole new game," according to Chen.
The competition continued as the credits rolled on Thursday's live show, and for once it was not an understatement to call it, "the most important Head of Household competition yet."
"If I do not get Daniele out, I'm going home and will have to watch these idiots at home on TV," Jeff said.
Welcome to the life of every Big Brother
