After Howie’s elimination, James says he feels bad because Howie was so trusting of Will and Boogie, and they sent him home. Boogie says “Hey buddy, little news flash, you’re playing Big Brother, it’s a game where people lie, don’t know if you got the memo.” Meanwhile, Chicken George giggles and says “Who would have thought the apprentice lightsabers the master out the door?” After Boogie wins HOH, Will is not happy and claims winning HOH is the worst thing that can happen to someone in the house.
Janelle mopes around the house and sobs over Howie’s elimination. All the other houseguests try to cheer up Janelle by paying her compliments. In the diary room, Janelle reveals that it’s part of her strategy to appear weak so everyone else will think that she doesn’t have any fight left in her. Dr. Will tells Janelle that they got rid of Howie to try to force her into a stronger alliance with Chill Town.
Dr. Will and Boogie plot to put Janelle and James up. Their plan is to send whichever one doesn’t win power of veto home. Janelle tells Dr. Will that she no longer feels obligated to him because he backstabbed her, and Dr. Will corrects her and says he stabbed her in the front. Boogie tells Janelle that they are putting her and James up, but they plan to help her win power of veto.
At the nomination ceremony, Boogie follows through on his plan and nominates Janelle and James. Boogie says his reason is because they are both very good at this game. For the veto competition, houseguests are asked questions about former houseguests. Houseguests have to grab a doll representing the houseguest that is the correct answer to the question and return it to a kneeling stone. After each question, one kneeling stone is removed so the last houseguest back is eliminated. During the competition, James and Janelle get in a tussle over a doll, and Janelle winds up winning. James is eliminated from the competition but complains that Janelle had the wrong doll and grabbed the right doll out of his hands. Erika and Janelle are the final two, and Janelle wins power of veto.
After the power of veto competition, James tells Danielle that Janelle scratched him and yanked the Marcellas doll out of his hands. Janelle tells Boogie that her and James fought over Howie, which was the wrong doll, and then she grabbed the Marcellas doll. A slow motion replay of the controversy shows Janelle grabbing the Marcellas doll before James reaches it. Dr Will says “James thinks the show is fixed in Janelle’s favor, well it is, I’m the one fixing it, James.” At the power of veto ceremony, Janelle uses the power of veto to save herself. Boogie nominates Chicken George to take Janelle’s place.
