Marty also says that he hasn't talked with Steph or really Jacey-Lynee. He likes Jacey-Lynee and it will be hard to put her up.
Summer is pitching to Hermon... she wants them to start some sort of drama with the Gino/JL showmance - possibly saying that Hermon is also into JL. Hermon is not about that life. Full stop. He doesn't want to do it. Summer says that's cool - she just wanted to pitch it. Hermon assures Summer that Gino's head is straight - they don't need to worry about it. Summer agrees - she just overthinks and wants to protect.

Steph, Summer and JL are in the kitchen. Summer is telling Steph that JL wanted to have a house meeting about the house and keeping it clean. Summer and Steph think it might be OK if it's just about that but Steph is afraid it would turn into a nit picking situation.

Kyle explains to Summer how social media will be different once they're out of the house. Random people will let you know what they think - a lot of them.
JL wants to have a chitty chat w/ Kevin - she knows it's early but she needs 7 votes. He's not too sure what's going on - JL gets that, but she thinks they have this low key bond. Kevin agrees, but he can't give her an answer until after veto.
JL tells Kevin that she wouldn't put him up - he's happy to hear that because no one talks to him. JL: aww, I'll talk. Let's talk. Kevin talks comfortability in the house starts tearing up, which makes JL tear up - they agree that this game is mentally exhausting.
Kevin wants to give JL a hug, but he's not a hugger. They decide to come up with a hug alternative. JL wants Kevin to know that his name is not the one coming up for replacement. She asks if he needs anything before she goes? Kevin: no, I'm just emotional as always.

JL is campaigning to Betty - B wants to know who JL is thinking when it comes to targets? JL isn't sure, she hasn't talked enough game but she knows that it won't be one of the girls. The guys seem to have something going on so the girls have to stay tight.Betty feels comfortable talking to JL and if JL is promising Betty would be safe if she won HOH, then she's good with that - but don't lie. There's so many things they could do in the game if there's no lying.
