Nobody sent any official Hide Yourself lists, so nobody gets eliminated…this time.

With that take care of, Houseguests, the power is up for grabs. As outgoing HOH, Crockett will not be competing. The other eight of you will be playing a little game we like to call Poison Email.

Someone will randomly start with the Poison Email, and they’ll send it to someone else. And that someone else will send it to someone else, and so on and so forth. Once you get hit by the poison email three times, you’re out of the running. In addition, you cannot send it back to the player who sent it to you, until there are three players left. Once we get down to three players left you can send it to either of the other two, regardless of who you got it from.

You’ll “send” it every time by emailing your target to me. We’ll have a post here that keeps track of everyone’s poison hits. Last player standing will win HOH.

When you get your last hit, you can still send the email on one last time. Also, whoever starts with the email won’t have that counted as a hit against them.

I’m thinking we’ll go with six hours for the deadline this time, and I will keep reserving the right to cut that down at some point if I feel like it. So to start you’ll have six hours from when I tell you you’ve gotten the the poison email to send it on to someone else. If you miss that time once, you’ll get another hit, and still get to send it on. If you miss a deadline a second time, you’ll get another hit, which should probably knock you out of the challenge unless you’re the very first person, and at that point you’ll receive a BB strike. Otherwise, as far as I’m concerned feel free to use as much of your six hours before you send it as you like; just keep in mind what happened to the last guy who did that.

Every night, if you get the email after 9 PM Central, you’ll have until noon the next day to send it on. Otherwise, the six hour deadline will be in effect.

I think that’s everything you need to know. If you have other questions, don’t hesitate to ask. Happy emailing, Houseguests.
