Well, the good news is that Holly won HoH and she's on my team, so that's 10 pts for me.
The bad news is that Holly is the most-popular HG in this game, so 14 of the other 22 players get those pts, too.
Fucking Jackson! Why couldn't he have shut up and let Holly throw it to AnalFleas? I'd still get the pts, but I wouldn't have to share so much!
Ah, well, AnalySis can always win next week, I suppose. It's probably a questions comp (HoHs have been, in order, endurance, questions, physical skill, questions, and endurance, so questions seems logical), and that should be right up Anal's…oh, wait. Never mind. 😦
(But on the plus side, the full selection of emojis is back! Yay! Dance! 💃)
Popular Kids (Holly, Nick, Bella, Christie): 63 pts (+2 pts; HoHlly wins HoH, +10; Nick gets nommed, -5; Christie gets poisoned [we should be so lucky…], -3)
The three surviving "Populars" have each won HoH. So I suppose there's something to be said for "consensus wisdom". (If you ignore Bella, that is.)
You Can't Sit with Us! (Cliff, Kemi, David, Jessica, Nicole): 33 pts (±0)
Team DEstiny ("Michie", Tommy, Jack, Sam): 85 pts (-8; Tommy is icky and annoying, -3. Er, Tommy's punishment is. I meant his punishment. [Honest]; Sam hits the block, -5)
The Irrelevant? (Kathryn, "Sis" Analyse, Ovi): 31 pts (±0)
Oh, AnalFleas. So close…and yet, so lame.
Noo Yawk, Noo Yawk! (Nicole, Kemi, Tommy, Christie): 44 pts (-6 ptsl Staten Island [finally?] under quarantine, 2x -3)
"Taylor Swift" (Nick, Sam, Ovi, Jackson): 48 pts (-10; Northern chorus nominated, 2x-5)
Hey, didn't you guys use to have a lead? Somebody's looking likely to hit the Old Town Road, soon.
South (David, Jack, Kathryn, Cliff): 58 pts (±0)
West…ish (Jessica, Holly, Bella, Analyse): 43 pts (+10; HoHlly rides to the rescue…but they're still in last.)
Credit Where Credits Due
First Quartet (Analyse/Ovi and Nicole/Jack): 48 pts (±0 pts)
Second Quartet (Cliff/Kathryn and Nick/Kemi): 48 pts (-5; Nick might not stick)
Third Quartet (Christie/Sam and Jessica/David): 60 pts (-8; Christie gets splotchy, -3; Sam gets blocky, -5)
Fourth Quartet (Jackson/Isabella and Tommy/Holly): 56 pts (+7; Tommy is bad to touch, -3; Holly is untouchable, +10)
Hex v. Hexself
My "Shadows" (Jessica, Kathryn, Kemi, Nicole): 37 pts (±0 pts)
High and Low
Current "Perfect" Team: Sam (31), Jack (24), Christie (23), Jackson or Holly (22 each) =100 pts
Aww, "Jolly" are tied in the standings! It's like they're soulmates! (Don't mind me, I'll be over here, vomiting…)
Current Perfectly Imperfect Team: David (-3), Ovi (-3), Kemi (-3), Bella (4) = -5 pts
Now boarding on Track #6:
Team Good Taste (Nick, Kat, Tommy, Christie): 64 pts (-11; Nick nominated, -5; Tommy, Christie contaminated, 2x-3)
And with that, I'm exactly tied with the Jess-fans. Intriguing.
