Big Brother 8 Episode #3 Recap
July 10th, 2007
As usual a recap of the previous episodes leading up to Kail’s nomination of Carol and Amber.
Kail says she doesn’t feel Amber of Carol can blame her for nominating thm, Amber and Carol feel she took a cowardly way out with her excuse about them not doing well on the HoH comp. Jessica is only concerned that Carol be evicted before her.
Kail thinks she got off “Scotch” Free (yes she said Scotch).
Dustin hugs Amber and also comforts Carol. Carol says she does not want to fight Amber. Amber is crying a lot in and out of the Diary Room (DR).
Jessica and Carol talk in the tea cup. Carol says she can’t compete against Amber, she doesn’t know what to to about finding people to vote for her. Jessica feels she is pretending to be ok wit things. Just like Jessica wanting Carol out first – Carol says she wants Jessica out first.
Carol talks to Zach – Zach says he has not commited to vote for either – Carol says she didn’t want to fight for it but asks for Zach’s help. Zach in the DR says he is going to help out the person that will help him best.
Outside Dick and Kail talk about his son, Dick says he took his son to a strip club when he turned 21 and they were both drunk. Dick says he has a very strong bond with his son. Kail remarks that Dick has a very ’soft’ interior. Dick says Daniele is very much like him and that makes it tough.
Nick talk….. some girls and guys think nick is ‘hot’ – Jen says she doesn’t like muscles. Nick is shown flirting with Daniele. Then he is shown talking with Amber – whom Nick says is second on his list to ‘flirt’ with. Then we see him talking to Jen. Jen says she has a little interest in him. Carol asks Nick which one will be the lucky girl? Nick says, “or boy?”
As Carol and Jen are gossiping about Nick and Daniele – Jen says Nick tried to kiss her. Joe overhears and goes right back to tell Nick. Nick comes out and confronts Jen. Jen gives Nick a look implying he wasn’t being honest and Nick is obviously upset. Jen says that Nick did try it. Witness to the whole even are Jessica, Jameka, Joe and Carol. Needless to say Jen looks pretty bad.
Jen has a private chat with Nick in the storage room. She pretty much implies she isn’t happy with Nick flirting with everyone. They hug and Jen asks if he will try to kiss her later – Nick carefully dodges the issue. Then he goes and tells Dick, Amber and others what she said.
Now everyone is bashing Jen and he clothes and her many t-shirts with Jen things on them (it is an imitation of Will’s shirts from last year).
Kail and Amber talk in the HoH room. Kail asks whom she should put up if Carol comes off the block – Amber suggests Jen.
Kail talking to Mike feels that Carol will hold more of a grudge about being nominated than Amber.
Cut to Amber talking out loud to God asking him to help her. In the DR she says she feels God is on her side (ed – so what did Carol do to have God against her? Sheesh!).
Power Of Veto (POV) competition. Kail, Amber and Carol draw balls to pick whom will play with them. Kail got HG choice and picked Daniele. Amber drew Jameka. Carol drew Nick. Kail asked Jessica to host the competition. Everyone else had to wait in the HoH room.
Each person was given a POV symbol to hide in the house.
Daniele hid hers in the slop bucket. Carl hid hers in a bed. Amber hid hers in a pillow case in a bed. Nick hid his under a matress. Kail hid hers in a box of tea bags. Jameka hid hers in her ‘hair bag.’
Danielle was first up with 1 minutes to search the house. She didn’t find one.
Meanwhile Jen is in the HoH room with Dick and Dick comments in the DR it was driving him nuts.
Carol finds a symbol in her time. Amber runs out of time. Nick runs out of time. Kail tears apart the bedrooms and finds one symbol.
Back in the HoH room Dick tells Jen she was a real bitch to him the first night. He also comments that she was rude with the ‘don’t touch me’ comment during the food competition.
Speaking of the competition – Jameka finds a symbol on her trip. Nick found one as well. Daniele found the fifth veto.
Since Daniele’s was the only symbol not found – she won the POV.
Amber starts asking Daniele if she likes Jen and it seems she might want Daniele to use it and then perhaps Kail will nominate Jen.
Eric’s first assignment – to tell a traumatic story to Kail. Eric irritated his eyes and pulled Kail into the HoH room. He proceeds to weave a story about a girl that he dated in high school and her eating disorder and how it was brought back because of looking at Danielle. Kail bought it hook line and sinker.
Joe and Dustin talk. Joe asks Dustin what he needs from him (Joe) – Dustin says he just wants Joe’s respect. Dustin also apologizes to Joe for not being as understandign about some family things and this seems to satisfy Joe.
Outside Daniele mulls over using the POV as a way to get Jen out.
I’m recapping as I watch – refresh the page to see if I have added anything!
And with that – my cable has gone out (seriously). Lucky for me I know the outcome of the show.
Daniele mulls over her decision, calls everyone in to the living room for the ceremony. Carol and Amber both have a chance to say why she should use it on them and then Daniele decides…. NOT to use the POV (The Jen thing was never seriously considered – thanks CBS for the editing to imply it was – lol).
Show ends and we are finally caught up to Yesterday. Tune Thursday for the first live eviction of the year!
Tonights America’s Players vote it to tell Eric whom to vote for – go here to tell Eric – voting ends at 3am Eastern.
