M. Giant: B+ | Grade It Now!
Till Death Do You Part

Sheila breaks down, and Sharon takes off in her usual sunny mood. It's kind of refreshing, actually: she refuses to make this a big moment. Seriously, she's less upset than I get when my cat farts. After she's gone, the three remaining houseguests immediately split up to change clothes, so clearly they've already been briefed on the HoH competition.

Sharon's Chenterview is almost eerily cheery and clear-eyed. She says that Ryan misplaced his faith in Adam, and predicts that Adam and Sheila will stick together to the end. Julie remarks on Sharon's apparent confidence in the face of her six total nominations, and asks where it comes from. Apparently Julie has failed to notice that Sharon doesn't get upset about anything, ever. But to answer Julie's question, Sharon said that she never knew what was going to happen. Well, okay, then.

Farewell messages. Adam tells Sharon she's been through the ringer, but he's got to look out for his partner. Ryan says he doesn't understand why Sharon is out there, and this wasn't his plan. Sheila tells Sharon that she's taught her what a good Christian is, and will one day make a great wife or mother. Julie's last question? Her future with Jacob. Sharon says she would like to try to make it work. Okay, I'm disappointed that she got booted, but her wanting to get back with that douche disappoints me even more.

HoH competition time. Ryan, Adam, and Sheila head out to the back yard while Julie explains some stuff, but it's complicated and the audio cuts out, so I can't really catch all of it. I do know that Ryan gets to play even though he was just HoH. Apparently without having to be told, the three houseguests wade across the pond, strap themselves onto kneeboards on a wet, slanted tarp, and grab onto a tow rope attached to the rock formation in front of them. Water starts rushing at them, and the surface is angled up higher to about twenty degrees. They're all quickly soaked from the shoulders down. Julie calls the beginning of the competition, and they commence hanging. Looks like another endurance competition.

Julie brings us back just long enough to show us that it's now raining. The final HoH will be named tomorrow, and decide on the last eviction. I certainly am enjoying all these lasts.
