Robert: What happened? WHAT HAPPENED? I mean, obviously, I can’t even trust my alliance now… I was left in the dark this week and I don’t like it. It’s disrespectful. But I won’t show them how angry I am. Oh, no. I have to deal with this myself and I need to find a way to get on their good terms fast. Felix’s game might be over but my ain’t! At least now I know I’m dealing with dishonest people and now I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty one bit!
Kyra: Everything went according to plan this week, but Selena and I need to make sure that Robert understands why we got rid of Felix and that we don’t have anything against him. Yes, he is alone in this game, but it’s a brand new week and anything can happen. We don’t want anyone as our enemy.
Karen: This new HoH competition is absolutely horrid. I can endure freezing cold showers and basically anything else you decide to throw in our way, I am a woman after all, but running? That’s so not for me, darling. *laughs*
Selena: And it seems as though Karen is the first one to drop. Karen, since you’ve stepped off your treadmill, you must now name a player whose treadmill you want to make go faster.
Karen: I choose… Dane, sweetheart, you look like you can handle it. I’m sorry.
Dane: It’s okay, Karen.
Karen: I thought about speeding up Caleb’s to make it look like we’re against each other but I’m pretty sure no one suspects our secret alliance. They all pretty much think I’d kill him if given a chance. *laughs* And I still need to make sure he trusts me so I decided against it. I mean, he’s not the brightest person in this house, is he?
Kyra: Karen speeding up Dane’s treadmill was just proving to us that she’s on girls’ side. All of us haven’t really formed an alliance, but we’ve definitely discussed our positions in the house last week and we do have sort of an agreement that we want guys out as it would be really fair if a woman won this season. However, I did find it strange that she went against Dane. I love Dane. I always thought she’d go against Caleb as she hates him. Or at least Robert.
Robert: Phew… I was sure she’d speed up mine.
Caleb: I’m out too.
Selena: Caleb, since you’ve stepped off your treadmill, you must now name a player whose treadmill you want to make go faster.
Caleb: I want to speed up Kyra’s treadmill. You’re a distance runner, so… Run.
Karen: He needs to take care of his attitude. He’s not making any friends for himself in this house.
Robert: This competition is extremely well planned out. It combines endurance, will and strategy. Why strategy? Well, because you can speed up other players’ treadmills and make it a lot harder for them to win. So far, no one sped up mine and I’m feeling very positive about my ability to win this one. Great thing is… I also get to see who speeds up whose treadmill as they step off. This gives me a chance to see who is against who as I really feel low at this point in the game. I need to get back… and excuse me for this… on track! *laughs*
Selena: Charley, you’ve stepped off your treadmill. That means that you must now name a player whose treadmill you want to make go faster.
Charley: I want to speed up… Robert’s… no, Dane’s. Dane’s.
Selena: Oookay. Dane, your treadmill is now going even faster.
Selena: HouseGuests, it seems that you’ve hit the two hour mark. Big Brother knows how much you love to spend time in the gym this year and he doesn’t want this competition to last for days, so it’s time to speed up everyone’s treadmill.
Dane: The… light… on mine… is red now… *breathes heavily* Does that mean… that mine is… going… fast… er… too?
Selena: Yes, Dane. Big Brother is very fair, if everyone is going faster so are you.
Charley: I almost sped up Robert’s treadmill but, like, I mean, I don’t trust those girls just yet. Kyra, Selena and Dane are, like, very, very close in this house and I don’t want another week of their rule. I couldn’t speed up Kyra’s so I went for Dane. That’s, like, second best!
Dane: I… I’m… I’m out…
Selena: Dane, since you’ve stepped off your treadmill, you must now name a player whose treadmill you want to make go faster.
Dane: I… I want to speed up Stephanie’s… treadmill.
Steph: Why, thank you.
Selena: This is getting intense. I think I’m pretty safe if any of them wins besides Zach. But Zach seems to be holding on pretty damn well. I need someone to drop and speed his treadmill up! It would be ideal if Kyra won, though. That’d be perfect since this last week put me on everyone’s radar and I never wanted that.
Zach: I am this close to giving up…
Selena: Stephanie, since you’ve stepped off your treadmill, you must now name a player whose treadmill you want to make go faster.
Steph: I’m… going to go with… *breathes heavily* Robert…
Kyra: How about… we make a deal?
Zach: What do you… *gasps* mean?
Kyra: It’s easy… They did it last year. We decide who… wins and who drops… but the winner promises safety for us in front of… the whole house.
Robert: And why would anyone… trust you?
Kyra: I’m not suggesting myself… for the winner. I just… want to make sure… I am safe.
Kyra: I mustn’t push Robert’s buttons. I’m guessing he is pretty pissed off at us for evicting Felix behind his back so I’m willing to let him be HoH this week if he promises me safety. That way he can regain trust in me. And we can get back on track with the original alliance without the liability which was Felix.
Zach: I’m willing to… promise both of you… safety. I have no… problems with… any of you…
Zach: I’m feeling so broken but I must keep holding on. If I manage to make them drop before me, it doesn’t just ensure my safety, it also ensures Chaz’s safety. And it makes us one week closer to the big reveal and Chaz’s official entrance.
Robert: I’m down… for that. If you promise me safety… Which means… I wouldn’t go up, not even… as a replacement… I’m in.
Robert: I’d be a fool not to take that deal. I’m still unsure where I stand with Kyra, Selena and Dane and this gives me a chance to fight for the next HoH and ensure my safety once more. Until then I can try and see what actually happened this past week.
Zach: I promise! *breathes heavily* Kyra?
Kyra: I’m safe?
Zach: You’re… safe…
Selena: It seems as though Kyra and Robert both stepped off in the same time. That means… Congratulations, Zach! You’re the third Head of Household!
Selena: I’m not sure how I feel about this. Yeah, Kyra’s treadmill went faster than his, but she was a distance runner. What was she thinking? She looked like she was in much better shape than Zach was. She could’ve held on longer than him.
