Things are on the up and up, BB fans. Last night’s episode was complete with back spasms, NASA and dunking…not to mention a whole lot more of the ongoing Froogie bromance (Frank + Boogie = Froogie). I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Froogie continues to run things, but frankly (no pun intended), I’m kinda sorta over it.

Which begs the question: can and will Froogie go all the way?

With “The Silent Six” now working together, it does seem likely that Boogs and Frank may just be able to stick it out. Britney sure seems to think so; having told Danielle that she thinks Frank is going to win the game.

But Danielle can’t be bothered to ponder over strategy. She has more important things to think about. Like why Shane will only kiss her in public. Danielle and Shane’s showmance or lack-there-of surely takes the cake for the least steamy reality romance in history. But I’m liking Danielle’s blunt approach this episode. Now Shane just needs to put out or shut up.

Back up in the HOH room, it was time for Frank, Boogs and Coach Dan to talk some major strategy. The Silent Six clearly has a strong alliance, but is it in their best interest to nominate one of their own as a pawn this week? Coach Dan wasn’t about to volunteer, despite Frank’s suggestion – Dan still doesn’t completely trust Froogie.

As we know, trust comes and goes in the BB house. Chef Joe was livid after Janelle’s eviction since he got blindsided and was the only person who voted to keep Janelle in the 8-to-1 eviction. As we are coming to know, Chef Joe also lacks an “indoor voice”. Does anyone else feel like Chef Joe is always yelling at us?

After confronting his former teammates Wil and Ashley, Chef Joe was convinced that he would be up on the block this week. Ashley wants to know, “Are we just like the chitlins that are easily targeted?” Yes Ashley, you are all pig intestines.

NEXT PAGE: To Have or to Have-Not, that is the Question.

In the season’s first Have/Have-Not Competition, the backyard has been turned into the BB Orchard for “Ex-Squeeze Me.” The houseguests picked colored bandanas to determine which of two teams each player would be on. The Limes, consisting of Frank (playing for the back-spasm injured, Ashley), Boogs, Ian, Wil and Coach Dan managed to fill up The Lemons’ jugs rather handily with their own juicy citrus.

That left Lemons’ Britney, Joe, Danielle, Shane and Jen the Floater as this week’s have-nots. However, with candy canes and cod (fish) on this week’s have-not menu, eating slop may be kept to a minimum…at least according to Britney. Danielle hates EVERYTHING about fish, so she’ll likely be enjoying her fare share of good ole slop.

Before the nominations, likely-targets Wil and Joe both trek it upstairs to Frank’s HOH room to get a feel for where Froogie’s head is. Wil’s cocky attitude leaves a bitter taste in Froogie’s mouth, and Wil appears to have put an even bigger target on that flowing mane of his. Sensing that he is Frank’s biggest target, Chef Joe throws Wil under the proverbial bus, expressing his desire to get Wil out because Wil has lied to everyone in the house.

Turns out Joe was right. Despite thoughts of putting up Coach Dan, Frank once again follows Boogie’s order and nominates Wil and Chef Joe. But again Boogie demonstrates why he has had so much success in the BB house. While chatting outside with Britney, Boogs mentions that he thinks Danielle has been lying about being a kindergarten teacher, when in actuality, he thinks she is a nurse. Boom.

Not surprisingly, Wil and Joe were pissed with Frank’s nominations. In the DR, Wil mocked Frank, calling his decision “not classy”, while Joe declared, “This chef is not done cooking yet…revenge is a dish best served cold.” So is spaghetti.

Did Frank make the right decision to put up Wil and Joe? Will his nominations stay the same after the POV? If not, who will Frank put up on the block as a replacement? Will Shane ever make the moves on Danielle in private? Does Wil straighten his hair on a daily basis? If his life depended on it, does Chef Joe have the ability to whisper? And what is the possibility that Ashley had a lobotomy earlier in life?
