Some are born great. Some achieve greatness. Some have greatness thrust upon them. Then, sometimes, there is Jace. The skater bro from Venice Beach did not take the backdoor plot very well. “Everyone was afraid when Y2K was happening?” he reminded us. “This is worse.”

Jace knew what he was talking about. He has, after all, competed against some of the best skateboarders in the world. He’s snowboarded down the highest mountains. He’s surfboarded on the most tubular waves. He’s fireboarded across the lava swells off the Mahalo Coastline. He’s iceboarded across the wastelands off the North Atlantic, dodging yeti-dolphins and snow-pirates. He cloud-boarded through the stratosphere. He soulboarded into our hearts.

So Jace went to work. He asked Clay to keep him in the house. Clay, so handsome, told him that his ship was long since sailed. Jace reached out to Johnny Mack. “Me and you, buddy, we’re going places,” he said. “What’s Jackie bring to the table? Boobs?” At that, the serial-killer dentist stared into space for five minutes, his mind clearly working overtime. “Boobs,” he concluded, nodding. The matter was dropped.

Jace spent the day talking to everyone in the house. Audrey decided that the charade had to end. Or maybe she was playing a longer game. Some of Audrey’s moves this week have been confusing. She diluted what could have been a powerful alliance into a house-wide 5 AM kaffeeklatsch. After Jace got put on the block, Audrey specifically went out of her way to tell him that she had nothing to do with that backdoor, nothing—and then a few nights later she called a house meeting, declaring that everyone was in on it from the beginning.

Jace refused to believe Audrey, refused to believe that the whole house was out to get him. Maybe he was thinking of happier times, up in the HoH throne room, when it seemed like the whole summer would belong to him. What would they call the alliance? Cloud Nine? Cloud City? Cloud Town?

This was the moment when Big Brother revealed the other big twist of this season of twists. I know we all had our theories about the Twin Twist. Some people thought that Johnny Mack the Dentist was the secret twin of Hollywood legend Josh “Hitman” Hutcherson. But no! It turns out that Blamanda Seyfried, the woman from Miami, has a secret identical big-eyed blonde twin: Cramanda Seyfried. They’ve executed several successful substitutions. And it is almost impossible to tell them apart, although there are a few subtle differences noticeable only upon close examination:
