At least if you look at the results of Kevin's little game.
Kevin asked Jeff a series of questions about the type of women he's attracted to.
1. likes chicks in sweat pants with hair pulled back because if you can look pretty dressed that way, you are pretty.
2. prefers brunettes.
3. dates women 25-30.
4. a sense of humor.
5. girls with a school girl look.
6. likes girls into sports and athletic.
7. likes Italian girls.
8. likes gils with accents, foreign accents.
9. likes girls shorter than he is.
10. likes girls who are not outspoken, but always dates girls who are.
Jordan matches 1, 4, 5, 9, 10. But Jeff says that Jordan has a good heart and is a good person. Isn't that what you say about the people you put in the friend category?
HOH contest: Jordan is doing well, at first. That she starts slip sliding and falling all over the place, even almost, as Jeff says, popping a boob. Natalie, as usual, has more mouth than talent; this time she embraces that. She sees that Kevin is doing well and figures that since he'll be protecting her, she will let the other houseguests know that she's not a threat as a competitor. As if they didn't know that already. She's not a good actress either; her lack of effort is apparent to Jeff, who loses respect, and Kevin, who gets annoyed. In the end, Kevin's naturally 'nice floaty steps' help pour enough hot cocoa to reach the marshmallow and he wins HOH.
The crying game: With Russell's departure, Michele realizes she's alone. She goes in a bedroom alone and weeps. It becomes clear that with more than 50 days in the house, she's cracking. Indeed as the tears flow, she tells herself, 'it's just a game, why am I crying? It's just a game.' You can practically see her rocking and wearing a straitjacket.
In Kevin's HOH room are pictures of his cute partner. Kevin, inexplicably even to himself, begins to weep as he reads the letter for his partner, asking him to be true to his 'beautiful essence.'
Jordan tells the gang the story of her house, stocked with her mother, sister, sister's boyfriend, and Jordan, going into foreclosure. She says that being at the BB house really makes you miss your family. She chokes up. She says she's leaving her mama's house until she's ready to marry, and implies that she might put her mama in a room of that house too. Jeff doesn't run away, but says he understands her closeness with her family.
Natalie channels Russell: Natalie wants Jeff out, but she also doesn't want blood on her hands. So, in the kitchen with the other houseguests, she tells Michele point blank that she wants her out, that she doesn't trust Michele, that Michele, if Michele had gotten HOH, would have put she or Kevin up. Her strategic berating brings Michele to tears. Again.
Is a deal a deal?: Kevin meets with Michele privately and tells her he can't get in her head. Michele tells Kevin that Jeff and Jordan haven't been true to their alliance with Michele. Michele points out her aloneness in the game and that she does not have a shot at winning. Kevin wonders if he should break up the duo of Jeff and Jordan or oust the loner.
Jeff and Jordan tell Kevin they want him to go after Michele. Jordan leaves and Jeff pointedly asks Kevin whether their arrangement -- that Jeff would under no circumstances be put up for eviction -- was holding. Kevin tells Jeff he won't like his answer, which is basically, uh, no. Kevin says it's down to the numbers. Jeff tells him that he can keep his deal by putting up Jordan and Michele and letting Jeff play to save Jordan. Kevin is noncommittal. Kevin realizes that putting Jeff up could be a problem because if Jeff wins POW, he'll come after Kevin.
A deal is not a deal: Nonetheless, Kevin puts up Jeff and Michele for eviction. He tells them that his act is strategic, that they are strong competitors who've won the most competitions, blah blah blah.
Jeff says Kevin is not a man of his world and now it's do or die.
Jordan feels bad. She and Jeff are a package. She doesn't want to lose her BFF.
