Big Brother Recap: April is Like, So Sad

at . Comments

Right now on Big Brother 10, there are two pretty strong alliances - Ollie-April-Jerry and Dan-Memphis-Keesha - with two free agents of sorts in Renny and Michelle roaming the house. It sets up an interesting dynamic.

We'll see how that dynamic evolves as last night may have sealed someone's fate if the power of veto was not used.

April Dowling
Jerry MacDonald

April Dowling is nominated (along with Jerry MacDonald), and she's sad. Or, maybe she's just acting. Or, maybe she really is sad but also wants the other houseguests to know she's sad by kicking it up a notch (or 10).

The Power of Veto competition is a rare night version. The players for the competition are Renny, Jerry, April, Keesha, Dan and Ollie. 

Michelle is the host. The guests walk into the backyard, and it's filled with a plethora of typical haunted house fare. There are mummies, voodoo dolls, cockroaches, a python, etc.

The players were given five minutes to study their surroundings. After the five minutes, each player took their spot behind a podium, and Michelle began asking questions.

Each question asked for an amount (for example, “How many needles total are on the voodoo dolls?”). The players write down their guesses, and after everyone announces their guess, the players can Stay or Fold.

If they fold, they don't have the chance to win a point. If they stay, the person closest to the actual amount wins a point. If they stay and are the furthest away from the amount, they are eliminated.

Jerry ended up winning the first two points, but Dan ultimately came back to win. Dan Gheesling, Keesha and Memphis Garrett therefore rejoice.

Dan considers using the veto on Jerry to try and get Ollie on the block. But he can't get Renny Martin to guarantee she'll do that, so he opts not to use the Power of Veto. April and Jerry remain on the block.
