Big BrotherRecap: The Truth Shall Set You Free Season 13, Episode 10

As we embark on day 27 in the Big Brother loony bin, tensions are running high. Daniele's finger-waving fight with Brendon and Rachel opens the episode, followed by an intense confrontation between Jeff and Dominic in the "purple room." Jeff accuses Dominic of being involved in the backdoor plot (which he likens to being an accessory in a murder) -- two extremely similar scenarios.

Then Kalia surfaces in the backyard for the first time since Day 1, reminding everyone in America that she is, in fact, still in the house. She acts shocked when Brendon calls her out for being a floater, awkwardly taking her anger out on a plastic water bottle.

Jordan decides to call a house meeting, where Kalia screams a bunch of nonsense and denies being a floater. Daniele "Venus Fly" Denato is thrown under the bus and pegged as the master manipulator behind the Jeff/Jordan backdoor plot. No one (not even her ally Dominic) comes to her rescue.

Going into the live eviction, it becomes fairly clear the Adam will stay, and Dominic will go. In a last-ditch effort to stir things up in the house, Dominic says that several people remaining are "spineless jellyfish" —- but does not name names. Pot calling kettle, Dominic...?

Ultimately, Dominic and his suspenders are anticlimactically evicted in a 7-1 vote.

We return to the couch and Julie Chen's floating head tells the houseguests that everything is about to change. Golden key holders are back in the game, the duos are over, and the remaining Top 10 will now play as individuals.

The HOH competition begins, and as outgoing HOH, Rachel is ineligible to participate. The houseguests are placed on a set of elevated skis, waving their hips back and forth (in a somewhat sexual manner), while using ski poles for balance. We can assume they'll have to face the natural Los Angeles elements, like hail, whipped cream and marshmallow snowballs, for example. The last participant remaining will be crowned HOH. This competition is a Big Brother classic: the endurance, cliff-hanger style challenge, where we must wait until Sunday to find out which houseguest will get to say, "WHO WANTS TO SEE MY HOH ROOM?!"

Were you sad to see Dominic go? Who do you want to see win the HOH competition? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
