M. Giant: B | Grade It Now!
Go, Go, Jojo

Julie, whose red-and-white abstract/floral patterned dress looks like she's sustained multiple gunshot wounds, tells us that it's only day 21, but three houseguests are already gone, and one coach is hanging by a thread. Well, my mood is improved already.

After previouslies, and a recap from Julie, and a replay of the Veto meeting in which Danielle joined JoJo on the block, Danielle throws herself a pity party in the Diary Room. Frank DRs that it's too early to start turning on his own people, by which he means Mike's and Janelle's. And JoJo says she plans to make sure everyone knows the reason she should stay in the house. Her permanent duck-face?

In one of the bedrooms, Dan tells Danielle that he was only pretending to ditch her to motivate her, but since that didn't work, it's on to plan B. Which should have been plan A.

Meanwhile, Shane assures JoJo in the Have-Not room that he's there for her. Ian comes in and they turn out the light, and in the infrared camera, JoJo and Shane commence flirting shamelessly. Ian puts the kibosh on this by saying he's been told he's too heavy on the tongue, which seems like a socially maladjusted thing to say, because it is, but sometimes -- like when you want to get to sleep already, on your curved, slanted, metal platform -- a conversation-killer is exactly what you need.

The next morning, Ian tells Danielle about the flirting. This is news to Danielle, who assumed Shane was into her. "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned," she DRs. So this towering rage is expressed in the form of her joining Janelle and Ashley in bed so they can make wisecracks about how skinny Shane is. Ashley even uses words like "emancipated" and "introverted" to describe him, because it wasn't get fully established that she's not just spacey but an actual moron. The three of them giggle about that for a while, and then Danielle tells the other girls about Ian's report on Shane flirting with JoJo. Janelle, who after all has some pretty bitter experience with showmances, she decides that JoJo might need to go. Which I would say is exactly how Danielle planned it, if I could give her that much credit for thinking ahead.

Elsewhere, Britney advises JoJo to lay low and not say a word about the game until the eviction, and is especially worried by how friendly the *elles are with each other all of a sudden. Britney does a pretty hilarious impression of JoJo in the DR, nailing JoJo's dismissive attitude. After telling JoJo to shut up, which she knows damn well is not going to work, Britney feels the need to go to Mike to not only pitch the idea of keeping JoJo, but having the two of them join each other, with their teams in an alliance of five, if and when the coaches are brought into the game as players. At which point Mike will have been in an alliance with every other coach in the house. If and when it happens, which, don't hold your breath, Brit.
