My date with Jojo went really well. We threw a frisbee around out on the plains and just talked. She's such a sweet woman, and I know all the drama in the house means she has a lot to think about when it comes to love, but I hope in her heart she knows that I care about her. A lot of these other guys are just in it for the fame.
On the way back to the house she put her head on my shoulder.
"I just hope I can still find love," she said quietly.
"You will." I moved her hair behind her ear. "I have." How smooth is that? Robby's got nothing on me.
"You think I'll still get engaged even with Chad hunting the rest of you down one by one?" she asked, looking up at me hopefully.
"Definitely." I said, and I was going to kiss her but right then we both heard a gruff chuckle from the underbrush. I pulled out a date gun, but there was no sign of Chad.
"I know you're there, Chad!" I yelled while spinning in a circle, the gun level in my steady hands. "I love Jojo and you're not going to change that just by killing me like an animal!"
I was trying to be brave in front of Jojo but all I could think about was Daniel struggling while Chad drowned him in the pool. Daniel's hands gripping Chad's well-defined, hairy forearms while the rest of us looked on. Chad had been grinning the whole time.
Daniel loved that pool.
"It's getting dark," Jojo pointed to the sun which was only a little above the horizon. "We better get back to the others."
Overall, 7/10 on the date.
James Taylor disappeared.
He said he was just going to do a lap around the house to get some fresh air and he'd be back in a second but he never came back. His nose was still healing from Chad's first outburst, too.
Jordan whined his little ass off about how James was "just trying to kill the mood" between him and Jojo. Like it's a stunt. Robby told him to shut up and keep his spotlight on the doors, but Jordan was so busy complaining Chad could have snuck back into the house.
It's been 4 hours.
Night is coming.
I'm worried Jojo doesn't appreciate a stoic guy- she's always spending time with the flashy, famous people in the group (Robby, Jordan, Grant) who are all bark and no bite. When Chad was bashing in the front door where was Grant? Not helping Vinny and I bar it, or providing cover fire. Crouching behind the couch because "he makes a living off of his face."
I make a living off of staying alive.
Someone's screaming but when I get back I'll tell you about what a wimp Jordan is.
It was James T screaming. He's not in the house. Chad keeps moving him around the perimeter so we can't catch them in one of our spotlights. I don't know what Chad's doing to James but he sounds awful. Every once in a while we can hear Chad tell James to "sing for him." How did the producers ever let Chad on this show?
Anyways, Jordan. Unnnngh. Waste of an NFL player. You know the first person Jordan tried to call before we found out that the cell phone Chad left us had no SIM card? You guessed it- his brother. What's your brother going to do, idiot? Throw an incredible pass to Chad without it being intercepted? Grow up. Call the cops.
I'm so sick of his crap. He's going to get someone killed. The first morning after Chad went rogue Jordan woke the whole house up, crying about how Chad had shot at him through the windows. Well, you turned the shower on! Talk about giving away your position. At least it wasted the last of Chad's ammo and now we just have to worry about knives and homemade spears.
Jojo's really into Jordan though so I try to be nice when she's around.
Jojo called an impromptu house meeting today.
"I care about all of you guys so much," she said, "and it means so much to me that you've banded together to protect each other from Chad."
We all looked around really gratefully, but I know we were wondering how long the trust could last.
"Robby, Alex, you both did an amazing job getting Chad out of the walls. Those first few days were terrifying, and I know we all sleep better knowing Chad's not looking at us through the peepholes he cut."
Her eyes darted to the graves, but she didn't mention Christian. That was some telltale heart shit.
"I know now that James has... now that James isn't in the house any more, there are only six of you left." She said (I guess she's not counting Chad?) "But let's not cut down to the top four. Let's just all try to stay alive and someone will come rescue us soon." She didn't sound confident in the last part.
The meeting kinda broke down after that, and Luke cooked us another of our squirrels. We're lucky we caught so many in the early days, and that there was a cage of doves in the basement.
Jojo and Luke slept together tonight. Ugh. I know someone has to be with Jojo at all times, but can you not rub it in our faces?
Jojo and Luke found James' body when they went out for their one on one. Just like the others- decapitated with a rose stuck in the neck.
Luke dragged the body back and we buried him next to Nick, Daniel, Evan, Christian, Wells, and Ali. (Still can't find Vinny even with the smell.)
I should be sad but all I keep thinking is "2 more and I'm in the top 4!"
If Evan were here he'd understand. He'd crack one of his hilarious "Mojo for Jojo" jokes. What a riot. I wonder if he had ED.
I wish we could get Chris Harrison out of the tree. Chad did a good job nailing him up there. The site of his decaying corpse completely ruins the view from the front of the house, which means every date has to leave from the side door.
Today we did the "hometown dates." We couldn't leave the house, obviously, so we just described our hometowns and how much we missed our loved ones and wondered if we'd ever see them again. It was a pretty good time, Jojo winked at me when I said my mother was still alive and just wanted me to meet the right woman! Everything was great until Lyin' Luke started crying and whispering about how he wished he could see his dog one last time. Jojo started comforting him and the rest of us tried not to roll our eyes. Can't she see he's just playing her?!
Robby tried to run today at 4am. I heard the front window smash and Alex and I were in the living room while Robby sprinted away from the house.
"Fuck!" Alex said, pointing "He took one of the guns!"
Robby's head was on a swivel, looking everywhere. After he cleared the driveway he stopped looking back and just ran for it.
Chad's head surfaced above the grass like a shark's fin.
"ROBBY," I bellowed. "BEHIND YOU!"
Robby turned around and raised the gun but Chad was too close and tackled him. We heard the gun go off twice. The grass rustled. Finally Robby stood up.
"Yes!" Alex punched the air. "He did i-"
Alex stopped cheering when we realized Robby wasn't standing. Chad was holding him up. He swayed in the breeze like a human shield.
I counted the bullets we had left. Four.
I put one in my pocket and took one of the spare date guns. Everyone will think Robby had taken the ammo.
Everyone will think Chad has it.
Water stopped running. We're all thirsty, but we're letting Jojo drink the water we saved when the power went out.
Last night Grant fell off the roof during guard duty, his throat had been slit. Chad was on the roof. He's back in the house.
I put newspaper in the peepholes we know about but Chad moves through the crawlspaces between rooms like he's half rat.
And now he has the gun Robby took.
Made it to top five! Go me!
Alive now: James F, Robby, Jordan, Grant, Alex,Luke (Chad)
James walks in on Jordan killing Alex; Jordan tries to explain that Chad said if he killed Alex, Chad won't kill Jordan.
Jordan turns on James, turning to Chad's side for amnesty; James gets away
Chad kills Jordan
Luke and James kill Chad; Luke dies
James F wins!
