To bring the thread up to date on the feed updates, Dick won the Veto and used it to take Daniele off the block. Dustin voluntarily went up in his place (Dustin thinks that his voluntary nom will help build trust with Jen and Zach in case one of them ins HOH next week. The plan, of course, is still to immediately shank them in the back as soon as the Donatos are gone).
Although things look grim for the Dickster, he’s still trying to work Jen and Zach to keep him, while simultaneously trying to flip Jessica as the potential tie breaker.
Right now, it’s tough sledding because neither Jen or Zach can see any of the LNC voting to keep Dick and they don’t see that they have anything to gain by supporting the Donatos.
What they don’t know, and what the week might turn on, is that America is almost certainly going to order Eric to vote out Dustin. This will effectively screw Eric’s position with the NH2 beyond all hope of repair. Another hinky vote which they’re going to know came from him is going to place the LNC target permanently back on his ass.
If h thinks this through at all, Eric is going to realize that his only hope of long term survival will be to try to realign with Jen and Zach and the Donatos and wotk for the surprise ouster of Dustin. That could really work in Eric’s favor because it would remove the leader of the LNC and put the remaining members in a minority position in the house. Not only that, but only one of the remaining nerd would be able to play for HOH. Jameka can’t play for 4 more weeks and Jessica will be outgoing HOH. That would leave only Amber and Amber is a moron.
Eric wouldn’t even have to bring the Donatos in on anything if he could bring Jess along. He and Jess could team with Jen and Zach to form a new alliance which would not only have a numerical advantage over the other two factions but would not make the audience sick to its stomach.
Of course, that’s only until America kneecaps Eric with another order to shiv his own team.
