The picture is a little misleading, but still pretty funny. After Nicole won the competition to return to the house, she had a close conversation with Jocasta and finished with a kiss on the lips – accidentally. It was meant to be a cheek kiss that landed on the lips. Still funny.
As mentioned, Nicole was the lucky one to win the competition on Thursday night and knew she was up against long odds right away. The problem when it happens on Big Brother is that the way the system is set up, the returning player is always doomed. There is a reason they were voted out in the first place and in this show players can’t win back to back HoH. The re-enter competition is typically a gimmick to shake up the house a little, and that’s what they were hoping would happen this week.
Seeing as this was the first episode without the battle of the block competition, the show took up a lot of time showing things like Caleb’s ninja moves, and also a long time on the HoH competition that wasn’t aired on Thursday night. It was a knockout competition where players had to remember the certain day something happened and punched either the ‘5’ or ‘1’ button to count up the days. Every round, the last person to ‘punch in’ is eliminated.
Nicole was not even aware what day it was, and she later explained that was due to the jury house basically being a blur. They watched over 40 movies and were kept busy, so Nicole didn’t even think to study anything. She was extremely embarrassed when she was not only knocked out in the first round, but beaten by Victoria (who Donny joked doesn’t even know she’s in the Big Brother house). This made the competition 5 against 1 until that larger number kept dropping one round at a time. Donny survived until the final round versus Cody, but was too late to ‘punch in’ his answer and lost the HoH.
As per normal, the editing made it seem like Cody was really considering putting up someone other than Donny and Nicole, but he wasn’t. Those were his targets from the minute Nicole was making out with Jocasta in the back yard (joke), and it didn’t change at all. Nobody was surprised when their faces were up on the nomination wall and that’s where we end it. It doesn’t matter who wins the power of veto because either Nicole or Donny will be going home, although the house would rather get out the 42 year old groundskeeper who is apparently the biggest threat to ever play Big Brother.
