Next, Elissa and Howard do yoga. Howard thinks it’s a way of building a relationship. It probably is, but it’s not interesting to watch. He’s kind of bad at it, though, so it’s funny. Howard is surprisingly funny, and we don’t get to see that very often.
Elissa, Judd, and Jessie (who?) talk about the MVP twist and the nominations. Judd’s pretty sure he’s putting up Kaitlin and GinaMarie, and they have the exact same conversation about putting Aaryn up instead. Yes, they just talked about this. It’s interesting that Aaryn isn’t really a threat to anybody because she won’t win competitions, but they want her out just because she’s unpleasant to be around. Poor Judd just curls up in a ball and lets people tell him who to nominate. He lacks will of his own. Later, Andy, Amanda, and McCrae talk about how the whole house wants Howard gone. Well, Amanda talks about it and Andy sort of agrees. McCrae has no strong opinions. Judd walks into the room just in time to take another beating. Andy DR’s that Amanda’s coming on too strong and making herself a target. Yeah, her gameplay is not great. I worry about her!
OK, it’s nomination time. Everybody expresses their opinions and it’s all stuff that we’ve heard over and over this episode. Turns out the nominees are Aaryn and Kaitlin. Those are solid nominations, I think. Not only because I don’t like them, but there’s no sense in Judd making a big move like going after Howard. If the prevailing sentiment of the house is to get rid of a couple of troublemakers, you might as well do it without making an enemy. Much better chance that you’ll want to be the guy who didn’t nominate Howard three weeks from now rather than being the guy who didn’t nominate Aaryn. One of them could potentially help you, the other is just hanging around as cannon fodder. Not that Judd thought this out, necessarily. I’m just being supportive. Oh, his rationale he gives is that he doesn’t think anybody will vote Kaitlin out and he wants Aaryn gone. Which he later says is a cover. His game might be too complex for me to figure out.
