Big Brother 7: Week 5

After a completely unsurprising 7-1 eviction for Diane we got treated to the annual endurance HOH competition. All the houseguests got to lounge on a huge spider web and get gross stuff sprayed on them in the process. There were 5 mystery eggs to the first 5 to give up in the competition: 2 of them were rotten, 1 had a slop free week pass, 1 had a eviction vote nullifier and the last egg had $10,000.

Will naturally was the first houseguest to get off the web and chose a rotten egg. Janelle was instructed that after about 90 minutes that the remaining HOH contest participants had to crawl under the web and hang from the bottom using only arms and legs. People started dropping out very quickly after that, James being the second one out and chose the eviction vote nullification power. Then Kaysar and Boogie came off about the same time. Boogie got the $10,000 and Kaysar chose the last rotten egg. Marcellas came off a little bit later and obtained the slop pass. George fell shortly after leaving Erika, Howie and Danielle. It was Danielle who wanted the HOH the most begging both Howie and Erika to get HOH. Howie fell and Erika gave it to Danielle. Less than 2 1/2 hours after the HOH competition began, Danielle walked away the victor.

On Friday Danielle nominated Janelle and James with the intention of getting Janelle out of the house. James wasn't too upset about the nomination but wasn't exactly sure of Danielle's plan. Danielle mentioned she wanted to make it look like her and James do not have an alliance but the house isn't buying it. Chill Town wants to flip the script to get James out but are not sure they have the numbers.

Saturday was the veto competition that was another how bad do you want it type of games that involved the food competition as well. Janelle, James, Danielle, Marcellas, Will and Boogie competed in the veto this week. It seems that there was a lot of hot sand and an elaborate set up in the backyard for the veto. The game appeared to work in a way that they would earn points for answering questions and giving up something (food, running water, beds) and could use points to buy things (trip, phone call, party). In the end Janelle has the most points accumulated and won the veto. This throws a huge wrench in Danielle's plan as she is very unhappy Janelle won the veto. Danielle will likely put up Kaysar but Boogie is begging her to put up Marcellas. Kaysar would likely get voted out if he went up but there might be numbers to evict James against Kaysar. There was a lot of wheeling and dealing in the veto competition so it will take a while to sort out who agreed to what but Danielle will have to be in solitary confinement for 24 hours as one of the things she agreed to.

Monday was the veto ceremony and Danielle did what was expected. When Janelle took herself off the block with the veto Danielle nominated Kaysar in her place. It looks very likely that Kaysar will be voted out of the house. Chill Town and the remaining non nominated S6 alliance want to try go get James out but since he has the one vote nullifyer the vote would need to be 5-2 in Kaysar's favor since Danielle would break the tie and save James.

Natalie suggests maybe Franco didn't want her but Franco says he needs to visit Keela. Natalie agrees and then Franco worries he didn't do very well on the test.

Tommy is still in the process of submitting his retirement paperwork when he runs into a guy he knows named Vinnie. They get to talking and Vinnie explains why he is at the headquarters, he got his hand messed up on a call 9 months ago and wasn't going to take the pansy way out and retire.

Keela says that Alicia just says to try her best so that's what Franco did too and she still loves him for it. Then the bodyguard says its time to go if they need to catch their flight. Franco wonders where that is to and Keela says its her new school in France. Franco is upset that he is not going to see Keela again but she says that she will try her best and she loves him. Franco says he loves her too as he watches them walk away.

7th Heaven 11.03 Spoilers

This episode should air October 9, 2006.

Ben is at the twins' school and has a run in with Ms. Margo in the parking lot. They flirt but Ms. Margo goes back inside with an envelope just as Ben notices he locked himself out of the van. Ben goes back to the Kinkirk house to get the spare key and sees interrupts Kevin and Lucy when he shouldn't.

At the twins' school Eric is complaining to a very disinterested Principal about the inappropriateness of being hit on by the twins' teacher. The Principal does not believe Eric and doesn't think the school board will as well. The Principal suggests maybe Eric is making all of this up because Annie is out of town and he needs some attention. Eric suggests putting the twins in another class and the Principal laughs at him and tells him to get some rest.

Eric is visiting a patient named Stanley in the hospital who was expecting Lucy instead. Eric offers his assistance instead but Stanley is still upset he did not get to see Lucy. Stanley notices Eric is not doing so well and asks what happened. All Eric says is that he had an incident with the twins' teacher and principal that he is not too proud of and is having a bad day. Stanley points out if Eric has a house, wife and kids who love him and is not addicted to any substances then he cannot have a bad day. Stanley notices Eric's jacket and says its nice, Eric accepts the compliment but then Stanley says he wants the jacket for himself. Eric offers to buy him the same jacket but Stanley wants that particular one. Eric changes the subject and asks how Lucy and him met. Stanley explains that Lucy almost ran him over with her car. Talk goes back to heart conditions and Stanley thinks he has one. Eric can sympathize since he had heart surgery a few years ago. Stanley goes back to the jacket and keeps asking for it. Eric refuses and tells Stanley to focus on getting better. Just then the doctor comes in and comments that Eric does not look well. Eric says he is just tired from camping out with the twins in the backyard but says he was meaning to have a check up. The doctor suggests that Eric have the check up now since he is already at the hospital.

Kevin and Lucy are getting the guest room ready for Ben's visit. Lucy is going to bake a cake for Ben's birthday and wants him to feel as comfortable as possible. Kevin wonders why they are going through so much trouble since Ben is only going to be there for a couple of days. There is also talk about Ben should have knocked when he interrupted them earlier.

Eric is at the doctor's office and is concerned about Stanley. The doctor says that Stanley is a bum and from time to time he makes up an illness to spend some time at the hospital to get free food and a clean bed. The doctor then says that he is not happy with Eric's test results and he should see his own doctor to go over them. Eric wants to know right away what the problem is especially if he needs heart surgery again. As Eric takes a call from Lucy about picking the boys up from school, the doctor implies that surgery is not the issue.

Project Runway 3 Spoilers

Project Runway usually keeps a pretty good lid on spoilers until fashion week when it becomes common knowledge who the final 4 are. However, there are a few tidbits to share on the interesting third season of Project Runway.

First, one of the designers is getting kicked off the show for violating the rules. This designer is none other than Keith, our men's wear designer. The reason for the booting is not entirely clear but most of the buzz is surrounding stolen/copies sketches or smuggled fashion books.

Second, there is evidence to suggest that Milan will be back in one way or another. Milan could be the replacement after Keith's departure or he could be chosen by one of the final 3 as a helping hand on their finale collection.

Also, there is word that the Barbie designer Robert will make it to the final 3. Many of you may have heard that one of the models, Jia Santos, was seriously hurt in a bus accident on her way to the final challenge thus possibly identifying her final 3 designer. Unfortunately Jia's current designer is basket hat Vincent who is unlikely to make it that far.
