After Marcellas gets nominated by Janelle, Marcellas says “The pages of Big Brother history are littered with the corpses of people who thought they were safe.” Even though Dr. Will and Mike Boogie told Janelle that Marcellas was just a pawn, they plot with James and Danielle to send Marcellas home. Dr. Will and Mike Boogie also assure Marcellas that he is safe, and then call him a sucker after he leaves.
For the live eviction ceremony, all the houseguests are dressed up in prom outfits. In a rare move, Julie Chen cracks a funny while talking to the houseguests. After Howie says that it was good to see April and he loved her, Julie asks him if he really does or if that is just a “spool of lies” (the phrase that Howie lied and told the other houseguests that he guessed in the Coup d’Etat).
For this week’s Big Brother family segment, Janelle and Danielle’s moms talk about their daughters. Janelle’s mom Ann says that Janelle is very selective when it comes to having girlfriends. Danielle’s mom Rosalind says if there is something that Danielle wants then she’s going to fight until she gets it.
In a private conversation, Julie Chen asks Janelle what her thoughts are on James now. Janelle says that she really wants to trust him but he seemed to be faking in the veto competition. Julie also asks about Marcellas, and Janelle says that they are mending their friendship.
Mike Boogie wins the Coup d’Etat with the guess “You reap what you sew.” Julie Chen tells Mike Boogie that during the next three eviction ceremonies that he can overthrow the HOH and replace the nominations with anyone but the dethroned HOH and the veto winner. Mike Boogie opts not to use the power in tonight’s eviction ceremony.
Julie Chen asks Erika and Marcellas if they have any final pleas to the houseguests before the votes. Erika says “If you guys think you can use me in your strategy then keep me around. If not then vote me out.” Marcellas says “No big speeches. We each get to choose how be play this game. If you want this game to be about lies and scum bagging each other and you can live with that when it’s over that’s great.” By a unanimous vote of 6 to zero, Marcellas is evicted from the Big Brother All Stars house. Julie asks Marcellas about Janelle, and Marcellas says “The girl lies as much as she breathes.”
In the HOH competition, houseguests have to guess which houseguest that America voted to assign a specific superlative to. In light of last week’s technical malfunction, houseguests raise their left or right hand to signify their answer. The questions result in a tie between Chicken George and Danielle. For the tiebreaker question, Chicken George and Danielle have to guess how many minutes total the Big Brother house went without hot water in the bathrooms as a result of the Digging Your Own Grave veto competition. Chicken George wins head of household.
In a surprise twist, Julie Chen announces that it is a double eviction week, and Chicken George has to make his nominations right away. Chicken George nominates James and Erika.
