At the first HOH competition of the summer Preston wins for himself and alliance. Vinnie tries to convince Preston to nominate three girls not caring how it looks. Preston tells the guys he should nominate two girls and a guy so not only do they have someone likely to win the power, but also to not cause suspicion among the girls. Vinnie not pleased by this begins to get angry saying they shouldn't put their own alliance at risk. The rest of the men agree putting Preston in a tough position. At the nomination ceremony Preston decides to nominate Anikka, Amanda and Harriett. After the nomination ceremony the game is completely split. Men on one side and Woman on the other, except for one.
