On a game level, Tommy didn't think it would be wise to target one of the Six Shooters even though they were no longer together. Michie didn't want the six to reunite, but he told Tommy exactly what he wanted to hear.
Tommy told Christie he wanted to nominate Cliff and Kat, with the intention of taking Kat out first, and Christie seemed to agree.
Tommy said it would be important for them to get the numbers back and weaken the other side of the house. Tommy even considered taking Cliff off and nominating Nicole as a pawn to make sure Cliff would go home.
Tommy said Kat was the smartest player in the house and had good working relationships with every person in the house. Considering he also thought Kat was a competition beast, he wanted her gone.
Cliff then touched base with Tommy, who didn't want Cliff to think he was the target. Tommy hoped to keep Cliff in his back pocket, but he acknowledged it would be "a tricky dance" to pull off.
Kat then cried to Michie about how she was on the bottom of the house again. Kat didn't like Michie, but for some reason, she still trusted him -- and she said the situation sucked.
Tommy assured Kat the alliance of six was not getting back together, but she called him out to cameras as being the worst liar ever.
The houseguests were then asked to gather in the living room, and they learned America had been voting for the previous eight days to send three houseguests on "a field trip" and take part in a special competition.
The houseguests discovered the winner would be safe from eviction, the second-place finisher would receive a punishment -- which turned out to be a giant chicken suit -- and the houseguest to finish the competition in last place would be put on the chopping block as a third nominee for the week.
Christie cried, thinking America voted for her to compete in the competition because they didn't like her. Michie and Holly celebrated the idea of Michie potentially winning safety and Christie going up on the chopping block -- without getting blood on either of their hands.
Analyse was then shown telling Tommy she could throw the "field trip" competition in order to prevent Christie from going home since Michie and Holly would vote her out.
Tommy thought Analyse on the chopping block would be best case scenario because no one would vote her out.
"Is this smart? I don't know. I want you to call the shot," Tommy told Analyse.
It then became time for the special competition, which required Christie, Michie and Analyse to maneuver eggs through the outside of a chicken coup and then roll one egg at a time down a ramp in attempt to knock down four letters that spelled "Safe."
Michie won the competition and was declared safe for the week. Analyse said she wanted to throw the competition but since Christie was so bad at it, Analyse's goal would've been obvious.
As a result, Christie finished in third place and was placed on the chopping block as a third nominee.
Analyse, Christie and Michie felt they had competed in the competition because America hated them. Michie assumed Cliff would have competed if America voted for their favorite player to participate.
Nick Maccarone, however, hoped to win the Power of Veto and use it on Christie. He wanted to play with them going forward because he thought they were better players than the other side of the house.
Tommy said Christie was his girl and the idea of her going home during his Head of Household reign was "outrageous."
Kat fought to avoid the block by telling Tommy that he could move forward with her and she'd never vote for Christie to go home. Tommy wasn't sure what to do or how to handle the cards he had been dealt.
At the Nomination Ceremony, Tommy announced he had decided to nominate Cliff and Kat for eviction because he feared their social games and strategic gameplay. Tommy said he loved both players, but Kat broke down into tears and apologized for being dramatic.
Cliff thought sitting next to Christie was a blessing because he assumed he had enough votes to send her home. And Michie hoped the house would send Christie packing.
