It’s no surprize that one of the first things we see this episode is Amber crying about Dustin’s departure.

Eric is very happy that he did what America wanted and it paid off. He’s quite happy that he’s got blood on his hands. He apologizes to Jameka but she just can’t trust anyone any more.

Amber is crying and crying and crying and so confused. Jameka is upset at Eric after Dustin went in to bat for him last week and then turned his back on him and voted him out this week.

Amber is also mad that she guessed wrong at the HoH competition because she knew there were six. She’s annoyed that Daniele is now HoH. Daniele jokes with Eric and Jessica that they’re suckers but they’ll both be up this week.

Dick and Daniele are so happy about their change in fortune.

Jameka and Jessica talk and Jameka is sure that there is something up. Jameka is sure that there is something going on because it just doesn’t sit right with her.

Daniele shows everyone her HoH room. There is no photo or her boyfriend but there is a homemade card from Nick which Eric thinks looks like it was made by a 14 year old girl.

Daniele talks to Amber and checks in to see if she’s ok. It’s likely to be a hard week but it will get easier.

Amber seems to have a very limited vocabulary. She’s always asking what words mean and it seems she’s quite simple.

Eric talks to Amber and says that the vote to evict Dustin was very last minute and that if he had won HoH, Eric would have been gone.

The houseguests play some dom room drinking games and then start to wager. Eric loses and has to wear some hot pants and then one of Jessica’s dresses. His slender build and petite arms and legs almost pass him off as a woman.

Dick talks to Jameka and Amber about last week and his plan to make them hate him so that Daniele would be saved. Amber and Jameka figure out that there must have been a deal made. They figure that Jess and Eric must have agreed to take them to the final four. They then figure they don’t have the numbers.

The food competition is slop pong in toga costumes. Eric feels like a Jewish kid at Christmas. The team that gets a ball in each drum first will be eating this week. The losing team will be eating slop. There is a feast drum in the middle and scoring a ball in it will mean a feast during the week – even if they’re on slop. The red team gets an early lead but the blue team pulls it back before the red team pull out again. The blue team catches up and brings it level from being 9-5 down. Eric hasn’t gotten a shot in all game but makes it pay with the last shot winning it for Dick, Jessica, Zach and himself.

There is a new table for 8 which is so much smaller after 6 people have been evicted.

Eric talks to Jessica when Dick comes in and taunts them about their relationship in a fun way. Jessica admits that Eric is actually a good kisser.

Eric gets his next orders from America. He’s happy because America wants him to get Amber nominated. He goes and talks to Dick and Daniele and plants the seed. He’s sinister in his approach and just wants to bury Amber this week.

Eric’s next task is to give a childhood woobie to one of the houseguests.

It’s Daniele’s time to announce the nominations again. Finding themselves up for nomination are Jameka and Amber.

Daniele says that Jen is the actual target in the game. Amber says that God has shown her that she will win the Power of Veto and that her and Jameka will be the final two.

Everyone falls asleep and Ben talks to Christa about things. Jay’s name comes up and they discuss what Kendra had said and that he’s not trust worthy and they need to get rid of him. Christa changes her alliance to Ben which leaves Jay in a precarious position this week.

Five pirates remain as Christa takes the key and hands it to Jay to open the chest of zanzibar. Laurel and Louie are on the red crew and Jay, Ben and Christa are on the black crew. Ideally for Jay, that’s the perfect team.

The pirates have to swim to shore and hike up a mountain through the jungle to a cresent moon and find their next clue. Laurel is last out of the water giving the black crew a healthy lead up the mountain. The pirates need to find a clearing with the symbol for Mercury made out in a rock formation. The black crew take the wrong path and are boobie trapped. The red crew catch up but the black crew manage to get to the next clue first.

Using their clue, they now need to find the symbol for Saturn which was on their puzzle. The black team manage to find the symbol and the next clue. They now need to find the Earth and Mars formations and dig halfway between them to find the treasure. The black team pull the treasure out of the ground before Louie and Laurel even find the Saturn formation. They’re frustrated that they keep losing and don’t have much gold to show for their voyage so far.

The open the chest and inside there is $30,000. Christa is entitled to all the money and now has to decide who she is going to give the black spot to. She’s freaking out about Jay flipping out when he gets it. She’s having second thoughts but Ben is doing his best to persuade her otherwise.

Christa brings Ben and Jay together and wants to know what the deal is about the end and whether they are going to cut her loose at the end. They both lied to her and she is upset about it. Jay is desperate to stay and knows that if he’s put up, he’ll be going home. He begs for Christa’s mercy.

Christa says that if you’re getting a black spot then I think you’re a liar, and if you don’t, then I think you’re in an easy position. Jay is certain that it’s him but Christa just thows the letters on the deck and leaves. As it turns out, Laurel and Ben are on the block.

Louie and Jay make their ballots and neither of them vote for mutiny. It is a tie however. Christa has to make a decision as to who is going to be cut adrift. She decides that it is the end for Laurel because she wants to be there at the end with the strongest competitors.

Ben and Jay are talking like they control the game. Jay says that Christa will basically do what he tells her to do. Jay has pretty much been captain on the ship without actually ever putting the uniform on.

Having a woman in charge of the ship brings a very different environment. There has been no scrubbing of the decks and everyone has been eating well.

Jay is 100% committed to keeping Christa in charge and if he’s on the other team during the treasure hunt then he will drag his feet and ensure she stays in charge as she’s his mouth piece and does what he says. When the teams are chosen, Jay, Kendra and Laurel are on the red team while Ben and Louie are with Captain Christa.

The pirates must travel up river and turn right at the skull marker and fine a bottle that has their next clue that is hidden in a smugglers den. The black crew took a huge lead thanks to Jay taking his time rowing. However, they make a wrong turn and the red crew catch up. Jay doesn’t go in to help look for the clue but that doesn’t matter because the red crew find theirs first. They must now return to the beach and dig up a chain that is attached to the anchor and then pull up a crate which is on the bottom of the ocean. Jay quietly tells Ben to swim out to it and then tells the girls to keep digging. Ben finds the crate and then both teams row out to pull their crate into their boat and then back to the shore. Inside is a skull puzzle with a map on it that points to where the treasure is. Inside a cave that has a bit of water and bats. The black team find the treasure and are extremely excited but when they open the chest there is only a chain and a note saying that the pirate whose treasure it was had split with the gold.

Back on the ship, there are duties to assign and some black spots to hand out. Jay and Ben decide to play some high card to gamble some of the gold they’d already won. Jay cheats without Ben knowing and beats him 4 times before he calls it quits and pulled the same card out three times without Ben catching on.

Christa talks to Jay about the black spots and he says he’s sick of Kendra and that Louie had offered to go up against Kendra this week. Ben says Kendra and Louie as well. Louie says he’s fine with it. Kendra is sure that she is going next. Every time a shipmate comes in, Christa has a drink with them. She’s going to be drunk before this is over. Kendra offers up some info that Jay is playing the game for him and is worried about Christa.

Christa hands out the black spots and sure enough it’s Louie and Kendra.

At the pirates court, Louie is nervous when there is mumouring that perhaps he isn’t as safe as he thought he was. The ballots include no votes for mutiny and this time, after 6 times being given a black spot, Kendra is finally cut adrift.

There’s going to be a lot of awkwardness in the house after the vote is revealed. America wants Eric to vote Dustin out and Dick is offering him and Jessica immunity if they switch alliances.

The vote takes place and sure enough, Dustin is going home. What a shocked look on his face. Not to mention Amber and Jameka. How fun is the house going to be for them this week?

At the HoH game, Daniele once again reigns victorious adding further insult to injury for Jameka and Amber.

Who is America going to want Eric to fight for to be nominated for eviction? I wouldn’t be at all surprized if it was his best mate Jessica.

The top 6 perform Bryan Adams, Rod Stewart & Sting - The Best of Me - All for Love All For One as their last gig together before another one of them is cut and sent packing.

A staggering 3.1 million votes were cast for the top 6 last night but for one of them, it wont be enough. Before we find out though, a recap of last nights show and performances from Maroon 5 Maroon 5

They perform Maroon 5 - It Won't Be Soon Before Long - Wake Up Call Wake Up Call and Maroon 5 - It Won't Be Soon Before Long - Makes Me Wonder Makes Me Wonder before Ben tells us who is going to be performing next week and who’ll be watching it from home.

Matt and Carly Rae get told that one of them is in the bottom three. It’s Carly Rae. Dwight and Jaydee are paired up the same. Of course, Dwight is in the bottom three. Brian and Tara are served their fate. Tara is in the bottom three as well.

Once again the judges are surprized. Farley thinks it will be Carly Rae going tonight but it’s nothing to do with talent. Zach says they all need to do something WOW or they’re not going to be safe. Jake thinks they all need to step it up because the only person who has shown anything has been Brian.

Leaving Canadian Idol this week is Tara Oram. The crowd boos hysterically. Seems like it is two weeks in a row that the result has been an enourmous disappointment. Kalan Porter’s Walk On Home plays as we see a clip of Tara’s journey.

Next week the Top 5 will perform songs that inspire them and will get some advice from the original American Idol, Kelly Clarkson Kelly Clarkson who will then perform during next week’s elimination show.
