The PoV competition lasted over 4 hours, and when the feeds returned, the house was a mess. Oh, and get this:
James won PoV.
John was the host, and he is helping clean up the bedroom, where clothes, shoes and apparently pretzels are strewn all over.
I think the competition was similar to an old one, where each competitor has to hide something and try to keep the others from finding it. If it's like the others, they each got turns running in the house to look for someone else's hidden object, which would eliminate them from the competition.
I don't know if you can see, but Austin is holding a handful of pretzel sticks. Someone asks where those came from, and Steve says he got them in his HoH basket.
They're just filling up garbage bags with crap. Steve is apparently trying to clean up the kitchen, and calls out a clarifying question to the group.
Steve: So any food that's on the floor....that's gone now?
Everyone told him to throw the food away.
Meg's clothes are everywhere, and she keeps complaining about one of her shoes being across the room. You can see that even the mattresses were ripped off the beds.
James got that basket for Meg and tried to help her gather everything.
This isn't mine, Meg says. (the bikini top)
The girls figured out later that it probably belonged to Shelli, and that she probably has the bottoms with her in Jury.
We did see Vanessa for a few minutes, up in the HoH room, mad as a...well, mad as a hatter. She's in the shit now, because she will have to nominate someone else to go on the block. And now she has a big enemy in James.
The Twins are livid.
Liz: I saw my stuff had been thrown all over, so I went in and threw Meg's clothes all over.
Julia: Liz! How did you know it was her?
Liz: Well, I'm only cleaning up our stuff. No one else's.
Apparently James hid his item under the rug, and no one found it. One of the Twins hid her's inside a pizza box, so when she ran in the house to search and saw the pizza box on the floor, she already knew she was out of the game.
It sounds like Austin unzipped one of the duvets and hid his item inside.
Ultimately the ants won, too, when you think about it. Austin said the kitchen stunk and thinks it is the bacon that smells.
Austin: All that food.....gone. I refuse to clean up all of that cereal.
Austin says once all of the obvious hiding places had been searched, people had to get more creative, and they were all in a hurry so that explains the mess.
Steve: I used to have an underwear drawer, but I don't anymore.
A Twin: Oh, the Hanes? They're all out there, in the hall. I'd be so pissed if my stuff got messed up and I didn't even participate.
(Steve didn't play, nor host.)
Austin tries to put the Hammock Room back in order.
Vanessa found Austin's item, and is upset about it. She tells Julia that she knew James hid his under a rug, and she looked under every rug. I think she found one, but didn't actually "find" it because she thought it was Julia's, and she wanted her to win.
Julia: Meg will still go home.
Julia: You can put up John. If we all vote for her, she'll leave. (i.e. the AusTwins)
Vanessa: You guys will really do that....all three of you will vote her out and not him? Are you sure?
Julia: Well, who else? James is downstairs so happy that he won...I want him out so bad.
Vanessa: They must really be pulling for him, to give him a physical endurance comp that I should have never fucking won, and now this one.
James put a huge yellow sectional piece of furniture over the rug where he hid his item, and no one thought to look under it.
Vanessa: This was perfect for him...with all the times he hides from us in here. He's so sneaky. This was his comp.
Julia: I really don't care whether Meg or John goes...whichever you want.
Vanessa: Well, now that James and John are so close...maybe I don't know anymore. And now Meg and James are coming after me...great.
Julia: I want him gone so bad. You don't understand.
Vanessa: I don't know what to do now. I can't tell you guys to vote out Meg over John, because John is after you guys, and Meg sucks. She never wins anything. This game is all about incentives...there is no incentive for you to send Meg home unless she's on the block next to James.
Julia: I want Meg gone, but Austin and Liz want John out, I think.
Vanessa: Might as well go downstairs and help clean up. I'm so frustrated. I gave it everything I had...I've got bruises everywhere from lifting up stuff. And I found Austin's! There was just no way to know...
Julia: And I found yours, too.
Vanessa: It just shows we think alike. Well, James won it fair and square. Good for him, but it sucks for us.
Austin is the one who threw cereal everywhere and refused to clean it up, and Julia is pissed.
Julia: Oh, I hate him. I hate both of them. I want them both gone. But I want Meg gone, too, before she floats her way to the end.
