We flash back to Janelle’s 8-1 eviction vote, and Joe (the aforementioned one) hollers in the Diary Room, “WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS HOUSE?” The usual, Joe — nobody tells the old square white guy what’s going on. Of course, he and Mike are the same chronological age, so there’s that. Wil DRs that he didn’t want to make himself a target, nor did he trust Janelle any more. We see Mike and Frank celebrating, and Mike gloating in the Diary Room like the tool he is. Britney, on the other hand, says she feels horrible about voting out Janelle, but didn’t want to go against her alliance. Ashley apologizes to Joe, who waves her off.
Then there’s a flashback of Frank’s HoH victory, for the second time this summer. Danielle thinks this means she’ll be safe, given that the Janelle-eviction she got talked into kept Frank safe, while Joe figures he’s screwed as the only person to have voted Frank out. And Dan is interested to see whether Mike and Frank will turn on him and his alliance at their first opportunity. Joe is taking Janelle’s loss hard. He’s camped out in a bedroom, trying to keep himself calm, when Frank walks in asking for cooking advice. “Do whatever y’all want,” Joe says. Frank takes this with the equanimity of a new HoH.
Danielle and Britney sit in the Have-Not room. Danielle tries to buck up Britney, who is certain that Frank’s going to win the whole thing, now that they’ve passed up the chance to get rid of him. “We have to go out there and be happy or we’re gonna look like we’re sulking,” Britney sulks.
Mike quietly talks to Frank about their next move. Mike suggests nominating Wil and Joe. Frank suggests putting Dan up against Wil. Mike actually laughs at this, but it causes even his evil ass concern that it might “rock the trust of the group.” On the other hand, anyone stupid enough to trust Mike in the first place deserves what they get.
