Posted on Jul 14, 2011 10:30am

"I adore Renny," a heartbroken Keesha says. "It was really hard to watch her walk out the door." Their hugs goodbye are long and emotional, but all Jerry can muster is a quick
"thanks for all the meals" to the most recently evicted HouseGuest. Jerry sees his reign as HoH as successful since he stayed another week, but as a failure because Dan didn't go home. Memphis feels with Renny gone, any of them can win. Dan says Renny was very dangerous in the game since she is so likeable to all the people in the jury. "That's why she had to go," he explains. Keesha is very sad to see Renny's picture on the Memory Wall turn to black and white. "She should have always been in color," she says.
 Start of a Good Week for Dan Dan is delighted he's this week's HoH, since he now has secured a one-in-three chance of winning the half-million dollar prize. Memphis is happy to see his secret Renegade alliance partner in control of the house this week, but notes the last time Dan was HoH he put him on the block! Memphis warns if he is nominated again, "I will hurt him." Keesha says Dan's win concerns her, since she worries he's a little closer to Memphis than to her. Jerry feels the house is against him every day, but he has to keep fighting through and keep positive. "I'm not going to sit here and pout about it," Jerry says.
 Konichiwa! (That's Hello in Japanese!) When the final four return inside from the HoH Competition, they stumble upon a huge sumo wrestler in the living room! Memphis jokes they have a new HouseGuest. "Jerry, want to take him on?" Dan asks. "No way, Jose," Jerry replies. Suddenly, the sumo wrestler begins speaking a phrase in Japanese. "He would make a hell of a deep tackle," Dan notes. Memphis finds himself flummoxed at having someone else in the house. "You don't know what to do," he explains. "Why are you here?" Dan asks the sumo wrestler. Although they can't understand him, the sumo wrestler is saying, "I have the information you need" in Japanese. "I guess I know where the earthquake came from," Dan says. After the sumo wrestler begins to do some squats, Dan notices something sitting on the wrestler's chair. "There is something under his butt," Dan explains, before snatching the envelope.

Dan rips open the envelope. "You have officially launched a very special luxury competition," he reads to cheers. He explains that the winner of the comp will get a trip out of the house that could impact the game! What could it be, the HouseGuests wonder. A sushi dinner? A trip to Japan? A Las Vegas weekend? "I'm really lost on this one," Keesha admits.

The absence of Keesha's house bestie Renny is throwing her into a deep emotional funk, so much so that she takes to sitting out on the patio couch and crying to herself. "These guys have each other's back," she says of Memphis and Dan. "For the first time I'm alone." Jerry is using this to his advantage when he oh-so-subtly tells Memphis that the women on the jury are likely to vote for another woman. "We have to send Keesha home," Jerry tells Memphis. Memphis and Dan tell Keesha not to worry when she wonders if Jerry will try to come between them. Dan also reminds her that whoever wins the Power of Veto this week really has control since they are the one and only vote for eviction. But Memphis has other thoughts. He reveals his goal is to get himself and Dan to the final two, but it is up in the air as to who will be in the No. 3 spot-Keesha or Jerry!
 The Littlest (and Deadliest) HouseGuest Boys love their pets. This is very true of Dan and Memphis, who are fascinated with a spider that has spun a web outside in the yard. Memphis is so enamored with their pet spider "Ted" that they begin throwing moths into his web. "America, if you have a weak stomach, it is going to be intense," Dan warns. Keesha is appalled, but as a science teacher, Dan says this is an amazing experience for him. "I can't believe you did that," Keesha says.
 Not Fat, but Big Boned Dan has to cajole everyone to come see his Head of Household Suite reveal, but once the HouseGuests are up there, they are excited to see new shots of his girlfriend, Monica. Memphis finds it hilarious that many of the former HouseGuests were suspicious that Dan's girlfriend was not real! Things are going fine until Jerry points at a picture of Dan and tells him he was fat!
 A Special Guest! It's another morning in the BIG BROTHER house, and as the final four sleep, the backyard is transformed into an odd collection of statues, but one of the statues is moving! A big gorilla lumbers inside the house and heads for the Diary Room. The gorilla takes off his mask! Who could it be? "Who else could fill this suit," says evicted HouseGuest Jessie! He says the HouseGuests are in for a rude awakening since he is all about dishing it out!

After a masked Jessie rousts everyone out of bed, the HouseGuests go outside to find a host of odd statues, including a giant hot dog, a huge cake, a big berry, a stuffed dog, a hatched egg and even a real live female contortionist, which Dan in particular enjoys. Dan picks up the written instructions and reads that to win the luxury competition, they will have to come up with a commonly used phrase by studying the clues in front of them. Most of the clues are misleading, so as the game progresses, unrelated clues will be covered up by the gorilla. The HouseGuests each have three guesses, which they give in the Diary Room after ringing a bell. The player who gets the clue fastest wins the luxury prize.

Jerry rings the bell in the first five minutes and gives the phrase "Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil." Memphis thinks there's no way it could be that easy. Keesha goes in next and offers up, "Where sleeping dogs lie." The gorilla begins to cover items, including a UFO and a stuffed bird with glasses, which makes Jerry think his first guess is wrong. "It is all clear to me now," Memphis jokes. Jerry rings two more times, presenting, "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" and "The dog is man's best friend." Keesha finishes off with "Blew it" and "Don't count your chickens before they are hatched." Dan goes in and presents, "Bury the hatchet," which he gets from the giant berry and the hatched egg with the word "it" on it. Memphis uses the same clues to come up with, "Fruitless exit." Hard to believe, but Memphis is not confident in his guess.

It's finally time for the gorilla to go, but not without a handshake for Jerry and a very familiar cheeky noise. Dan perks up immediately. "Is that Jessie in there?" he asks. The gorilla disappears, and the HouseGuests go inside to find something under Jessie's picture-a glove from a Gorilla costume. Dan realizes he was right!
 And the Winner is… Everyone assembles in the living room for the results of the luxury competition. Dan is very confident he has the right phrase but, "Did I beat Keesha and Memphis to the punch?" he asks. Turns out he does. Dan was the only player who guessed "Bury the hatchet" correctly, making him the winner! Dan goes into the Diary Room and finds out his prize is a helicopter trip to a remote beach for the day. He can either take someone from the house with him or take along a member of the jury! Dan is stunned. He debates the pros and cons before eliminating taking someone currently in the house. He then goes through the jury, and decides the person who would most appreciate it might be the one he could sway to vote for him if he gets to the final two. That juror is Michelle.

But when Dan goes outside he decides to keep the Michelle invite a secret. He tells Jerry, Memphis and Keesha he got the trip to the beach, but said he was given the choice of only choosing a guest only from within the house, so he's decided to go alone. Talk about a big fat lie! Keesha thinks this is a smart move, but Jerry wonders out loud if there will be some twist, like maybe the jury will be there. Dan is rattled by this suggestion, saying he doesn't know what will be there. Jerry is surprised that Dan didn't take his house buddy, Memphis, since they are inseparable, but doesn't fully put two and two together. Be careful with those lies, Dan!
 So Who Goes Up? Dan comes up with a plan that he thinks may protect his alliance partner, Memphis. What if Memphis goes up on the block in place of Keesha? Dan explains this would calm Keesha down and make Jerry think the two of them are not in an alliance. Memphis isn't sure at first, but realizes this may be just the thing for this moment in the game.
 And the Nominees are… Memphis trusts Dan to do the right thing with the nominations. Jerry sees no reason why he won't get nominated. Keesha really hopes she doesn't end up on the block, since she was just up there last week. Dan welcomes everyone to the last nominations before he pulls the single key. Keesha is safe for the week! Dan notes this week's PoV will be the "battle for the ages." Memphis thinks he's "sitting pretty good." Jerry falls for Dan's trick, since he thinks Memphis is mad at Dan for the nomination. "About an hour ago I was all alone," he says. "Now at least I have Memphis."
