The nerds get called into the throne room where Colby is voted into the Nerd Off by Team Smash. House Hooloovoo selects Heather (by unanimous decision) to go into the Nerd Off
The nerd off this week is puzzles. Heather immediately seems confident because she does the weekly crossword and usually solves it. Cylon Kaitlin is the only one helping Colby because she want to break up Heathmanda and keep Colby in. However she makes him promise not to tell her team because they all think that she is trying to distract him from studying with her feminine ways or something like that. Sidenote: Is everyone but Rainbow Bright aware of the new alliance that is forming that includes her? Maybe she is too distracted by rainbows to notice.
They go to the challenge and Bobby is dressed as a
BDSM Dungeon Master Lord Humongous from Mad Max!!!!
The hosts explain the challenge: Heather and Colby will have to dig through some vats of lime green goop to find letter puzzle pieces. They will then use the letter pieces to spell words and solve a puzzle to win.
And they’re off. Both Heather and Colby dive into the vats of goo and quickly pull out letters. Heather goes with the strategy of getting all the letters first, while Colby starts unscrambling as he gets them (which kinda seems like a better idea). At one point, Heather can’t reach into the barrels anymore (go team shorties)
Sorry, word scrambles are reaaaaally boring to recap. Colby takes an early lead, however when he is almost done, he realizes he is one puzzle piece short. He frantically searches around for the last one going “full Colby”. He quickly finds it and moves on to the final puzzle and quickly figures out the final answer is Manhattan. However he makes a little boo boo and spells Maanhttan, giving Heather 30 seconds to catch up and maybe win. However at this point she is too behind and dyslexia has reigned its ugly head so the time expires and Colby wins.
Amanda runs up to tell Heather that she is her best friend (since when? Why haven’t we seen this friendship like at all?). Catwoman also swears to win this for Heather and take Colby down.
Heather walks out saying that she was so happy to have met everyone and been able to share what they all love with one another. She is sad though that she doesn’t have a Pac-Man/Ms. Pac-Man machine. Her exit speech is 80% happy, 20% missing Pac-Man. 80/20 till the very end. On a personal note. Heather has been a great friend to me here at TrashTalkTV. Like Moby, she calls me out on my shit and is always willing to laugh at herself and her friends.
So that’s it for this week folks. Sorry game nights are so goddamn difficult to recap. Next week looks like murder mysteries so it’s basically Who Dunnit? (that fabulous game show from last summer. Always and forever Team Melina). I cannot wait for that. It’s gonna be a ton of fun.
Who are your favorites to win? Do you also want to be BFF with Lily? Were you sad to see Heather leave? Is Rainbow Bright actually aware she is in a second alliance? Sound off below in the comments. Also, don’t forget we need a new name for that alliance. God help you if you say the Detonators or the Quack Pack. Those names should stay on the garbage that is Big Brother.
Until next week,
