Tuesday's Big Brother episode

Whoa. Tonight was one of the most compelling episodes of Big Brother yet.

**SPOILER ALERT** - Don't read further if you haven't yet seen this episode and still plan to do so.

I'm not quite sure where to start with tonight's shenanigans. George was obviously a little upset that James nominated him. I'd go so far as to say that James may have something to worry about now that George won the veto competition. How could that be? I have my suspicions that BB chose this particular veto challenge to give George a chance to stay in the game. Regardless, George proved himself to be desperate enough to stay in the game that he shaved his head, gave up the ability to compete in a future veto competition, died himself blue, and will eat slop for the remainder of his time in the house. Impressive? Well, I'm not sure that's the right word for it. He does have a lot of heart and desire and that says something. Poor Kaysar gave up next week's veto competition AND shaved his head, much to the dismay of Marcellas, and still didn't get the veto because he was only willing to eat slop for two weeks, not two months. James should remember Kaysar's allegiance to the alliance.

The truly shocking bits came after the POV competition. Kaysar told Jase that he would be the replacement nominee for veto winner/nominee George. Jase came unglued! He threw things, cursed, and called people all kinds of names. He has been playing both of the main alliances against each other, but somehow overlooked that in his defense. Jase also threw poor Marcellas "under the bus," accusing Marcellas of sharing information with both sides when Marcellas, if truth be told, has clearly sealed his fate along with that of Janelle and the rest of the Season Six alliance. The heated exchange between the houseguests outside while George prepared for his veto meeting was one for the books, with smarmy Will smiling and eating a sandwich while enjoying the show. Jase was mad, but he didn't do himself any favors by blowing up, thus ruining an opportunity to negotiate with James one last time. If the Season Six group doesn't recognize James as a true part of their alliance after this (they convinced him to nominate Jase), they deserve to fall apart at the seams.

The icing on the cake HAD to be Will. His speech during the veto ceremony was almost more than I could stand. He challenged the houseguests to throw him out, and has predicted that they probably won't. He likely will live through yet another eviction and will likely get one week closer to the money and the win AGAIN. His threats to throw competitions may or may not be true. Danielle won't eat slop AKA "the devil's oatmeal," so I'm sure she'll consider voting Will right out the door. I enjoy Will's diary room bits. He is hysterical and makes astute observations about people, but he is also a little mean and sometimes stirs the pot just a little too much. I'm hopeful that he will, in fact, be evicted. If he is the one to leave, James and the rest of Season Six had better continue winning HOH and POV competitions. Jase will come out of this with a score to settle. Yikes!

Howie, I hope we continue seeing our favorite Jedi for weeks to come. You make me laugh!
