S01E09 - Power of Veto and two allergic reations

Matt is upset with James about being up on the block after he said that they wouldn’t be put up on the block. James says it’s all about lying, cheating and stealing and doing whatever you can to be there at the end.

Matt and Natalie are both desperate to win the Power of Veto or they’ll be going home.

Alex is mad with Amanda. He doesn’t want to be on the block but he is all because of her.

Natalie and Allison are playing quick draw with some cleaning bottles.

Amanda and Matt are talking with Sheila who is feeling betrayed by Allison.

Matt and Alex are really afraid and James who is swelling in his position of power.

Sheila talks to Allison and says she is feeling a weird vibe from her. Allison swears that they are fine.

Chelsia and James pick Sharon and Joshua to join them in the PoV competition and give the hosting rights to Adam.

Matt taunts James about losing today and tells Alex that next week, James is going home.

At the Power of Veto competition the couples playing must try and connect a power station with a pile of cables that are buried in containers of peanuts. The varied lengths must be joined to clips on poles down the playing field with the winners being the first team to correctly get the cables connected in the right order. Josh and Sharon complete the task, beating Alex and Amanda by only a couple of seconds.

The completed task also gives some information from the outside world. That John McCain is the front runner in the republican race and that Barack Obama has overtaken Hillary Clinton in the Democratic race for the whitehouse. Joshuah is happy to get some Britney Spears news but they’re all looking confused about the Hudson River Virus newsflash.

Allison is grooming Ryan and plucking his eyebrows. Sheila is becoming more and more frustrated with Allison who no longer hangs out with her. Natalie is surprized about Sheila’s outbursts and the supposed betrayal.

Sheila starts acting like a mental case saying Allison has turned on her and that she’s screwed her. It all sounds like she’s ranting.

Sharon tells everyone what Sheila has been saying. Everyone is wondering what she is on about. Allison is annoyed that she’s gone behind her back and been talking about her. Allison decides it’s time to confront her.

Sheila starts ranting at her and Allison says she has no idea what she’s on about. Sheila says she doesn’t want her to talk to her for the rest of the game. Ryan then comes in and it starts getting really heated.

Allison is confused as to why Sheila didn’t come and talk to her first. Sharon is talking to Allison about it when Allison runs inside and goes to the diary room. Her throat is closing up and she’s having an allergic reaction. While Allison is in there with the nurse, Amanda collapses and starts having a fit of sorts.

Someone calls out to get a glass of water but there are no glasses so someone has to get a bowl. The nurse tries to get her to drink but she’s not in good shape. Everyone else is looking on in a state of shock. The paramedics arrive and Amanda complains that all she needs is some sugar. Living on slop is her excuse.

After they have gone, everyone is wondering what is going to happen now. Despite the fact that they’re gone, they’re worried because they’re family. Joshuah feels bad for what he said to her. Alex is sad that she’s gone despite what they’ve said to each other.

James really stepped up when it got tough and surprized everyone. Sheila is also feeling terrible about Allison and it seems to be a day of regret all round.

Amanda arrives back in the house and Joshuah goes in to give her a hug and everyone is glad to have her back.

Amanda is moved that despite the fact that people don’t get on in the house, they still care about her.

Allison also comes back and everyone is happy to see she is ok too. Amanda, Allison and Sheila all make up and hope for better days in the house and to remember that it is just a game.

Joshuah and Sharon decide not to use the Power of Veto so one of the two strongest couples in the game will be going home.
