After a very strange week of Audrey hiding out in the Have-Not room and shirking her Have-Not punishments we were ready to move on and get back to Houseguests who are there to play and have some fun. Speaking of playing, who is ready for a power shift?

After three straight weeks of the same side of the house controlling the game we’re hoping things will turn around and balance the power to keep everyone on their toes. This will also be a critical night for Julia competing to insure safety for her sister Liz who is currently rotated out of the house. If they can get through next week then both will enter the game.

Before we get to the actual vote, Julie Chen confirms Audrey gets a penalty vote for eating regular food all week. No mention of a penalty for sleeping on the floor or taking a hot shower. Earlier today Audrey told Vanessa that Becky lied and set her up with the pizza, but Becky suggested otherwise before.

Brittney Haynes joins Julie Chen on stage to talk about the season so far. She’s a big fan of John but thinks Vanessa, half of Chelli, and a floater will get to the end. Think she’s right?
