Hi all. I am NOT using the power of veto. The nominations will remain the same. Good luck to both of you, the sense I have is that this is VERY up in the air.

Good evening, houseguests. As your usual hostess could not be present tonight, I will be managing the proceedings in her stead.



You may call me Julie Gehn. Now, without further ado... the eviction shall commence in half a hour hence, but prior to that I have thoughtfully prepared some questions for you to consider and comment upon. Many thanks to the recently-eliminated Mikujin for his assistance in, shall we say... randomly determining who each of these questions falls to.

Poque, you have achieved the dubious fortune of guaranteed membership for this game's jury if you are evicted. As a juror, what criteria will you base your vote for a winner upon?

Mr. Steak, I hope your stay in the Head of House room has been a pleasant one. Of the remaining players, who would you select as least likely to emerge as the final victor?

The Lord of Hats, you too had a taste of the Head of House's living arrangements this week. Out of the other nine players that remain, how many of them would you utilize the veto to save if you were not on the block?

SalTheBard, which player would you put forth as the one who is most out of the loop, considering the ongoing machinations at play?

curiousCat, looking at the remaining players, who would you say is the most adept at social maneuvering?

Teland, who would you identify as the best liar in the house? I am not a valid option.

Kashuno, this evening promises to be an interesting one for you regardless of the outcome. From your perspective, which other player believes they are orchestrating the game's moves - and why are they wrong?

sniper4625, do you consider so-called "challenge beasts" to be threats worthy of eviction, or convenient allies to leverage?

Meinberg, I am sure your current position weighs heavily upon you but hope that you can set it aside for the moment. Have you identified a partner that you would like to go to the final two with?

Somberbrero, I congratulate you upon progressing to the point where eviction would simply reward you with the burden of jury membership. What kind of game would you be least likely to reward with your vote?

Presumably thirty minutes is sufficient time to consider your thoughts. I dutifully anticipate your timely answers.

I think anyone good at challenges is worthy of appropriate respect - the power of selecting who is on the block, as well as who is saved, is fundamental to this contest, no?

I would never describe any of my allies as "convenient," I've made some good friends and I hope to continue working with them. And those I haven't talked to as much, I've enjoyed what communication we've had.

I see this as a question designed only to foster disharmony, and yet I feel compelled to answer it. In truth, my answer has to be made within the context of my current situation. I had thought that Poque was an ally, someone who would want to see me remain in this game for an indefinite time, or at least until the numbers were fewer. With this change, it is impossible to say if I can truly trust anyone, if any of my decisions and thoughts have any weight whatsoever, or if they are merely words that will be washed away. And indeed, it is all for naught if I go home tonight, a possibility which looms ever likely in my heart and my mind. How can I think of the final two when my finale is nearly upon me? How can I think of the future when I may have none.

So to answer the simply, no. At this exact moment, I have no one. We will see what tonight brings, and perhaps that will change my answer.

Ooh, that's an interesting one! And the answer... probably most of them? These are my friends, I don't want to see them go! I mean, there's people I haven't talked to so much, but that's more like friends I haven't met yet!

I wouldn't want to vote for someone who didn't make any moves over the course of the game. No goats are getting votes.

Somber is who I think is most out of the loop, but that is solely because of his 24 hours of isolation. However if the vote doesn't go the way I think it is you could call me the most out of the loop.

i'd have to answer kupo, because it would take a lot of impressive gameplay i think, for a jury to pick a previous winner over whoever would be next to her

Your answers are intriguing in their variety and nuance. Hopefully they will be instructive to your fellow contestants as well, one way or another. Nevertheless, the time for discussion has come to a close and the eviction shall commence forthwith. Let us see where the point of division for this household lands today...

By a vote of five to two, Meinberg - you have been evicted from the Awful Big Brother house. You are welcome to deliver closing thoughts to your former housemates here or in Discord, but I am afraid that this particular heroic journey has come to an end.



As for the rest of you, I will see you again at eight-o-clock Eastern Time for your next challenge. After this week's conflicts, who can you trust to take the reins as your new Head of Household? We shall see.

As I feared, the currents of fate have washed me away. I will be clear for a moment and say that the results of this vote do not impact on the friendships I've formed with folks. This is... simply the way that things work out sometimes.

That said, I do cast a curse upon all five of you from the darkest depths of hell, so that your victories may taste like bitter ash in your mouths and that the ending of the world may seem but a trifle compared to your eternal agony so long as you toil within the walls of this forsaken house. I utter forth in the names of the lost and the broken, of the forgotten gods, of the shattered tongues, that a reckoning may come from on high and from below and consume you all completely and utterly, leaving nothing but entrails and stains to remind the world of your coming. My vengeance shall be whispered for decades to come in these halls, and none shall no peace so long as my haunting spectre looms.

peace out motherfuckers
