It’s going to be another busy day in the Big Brother house as Jozea makes his rounds trying to rally the troops and plan for next week’s nominations. The blindside is still on, which means that the returnees and their alliance members will be planning ahead for next week instead of on how they’re going to save Paulie.
11:00 AM BBT: Nicole tells Frank about James starting to feel bad about having to betray Natalie and Natalie’s group. Frank tells her that he should stop hanging out with that group than and he wouldn’t feel so bad. Frank tells Nicole, Jozea, and Da’Vonne that he is closer with them three than anyone in the house because he likes working with women. Nicole asks Frank if he’s okay with Bridgette being one of the new targets because she knows Frank liked her. Frank says he doesn’t mind it one bit, that it’s Bridgette’s fault for sinking her own ship.
Frank tells the girls that he’s not worried about James backstabbing them because James is loyal. Da’Vonne tells Frank that she’s not worried either, but that they need to separate him from Natalie. Frank tells them that another person thNey don’t have to worry about is Tiffany. Zakiyah tells him that she has said a few things that are red flags and mentions Tiffany’s emotions. The two of them agree that Tiffany will likely be the first to go from their alliance once they get out all of Paul’s group.
11:20 AM BBT: Paulie asks Tiffany if she’s trying to make a sibling pact with him. Tiffany seems nervous to answer, asking if that is what Paulie is trying to ask her. Paulie says possibly. He adds that he liked her before he knew about Vanessa.
11:30 AM BBT: Nicole asks Frank if the four vets are going to stay solid. Frank tells her that she knows where his loyalties lie and that is with the returnees. Frank adds that the only one he worries about in the returnees alliance is James. Nicole tells him that her and Day spoke about the returnees alliance and they agreed that the number 1 priority is to keep the four safe.
Nicole tells Frank that there are a lot of people who are fine with just making it to jury, but she isn’t because she wants to make the final two. Nicole adds that in order to win, she wants to beat the best, and right now she believes the best is Frank. Da’Vonne joins them, and Frank tells her that he isn’t worried about James possibly flipping his vote. Day tells him that the difference in the returnees alliance is that James is the only one they have to press for information while the rest of them freely share it.
Frank tells Nicole and Da’Vonne that they have the four returnees and the other four in the Eight Pack alliance as their soldiers, but says that Michelle isn’t that good of a solider and that he doesn’t like Tiffany telling Paulie about Vanessa, then saying that they already knew about it because then Paulie knows they kept secrets from him.
1:50 PM BBT: Nicole gets her HOH camera.
3:40 PM BBT: James tells Da’Vonne that he feels like Tiffany and Michelle would be the ones to flip because of how close the two are. Day tells him that Tiffany is like Audrey, and Audrey did the funky votes, so she believes that Tiffany will do the same. James tells her that the smallest thing will get Tiffany emotional and that she is so much like Vanessa is many ways.
3:50 PM BBT: James tells Paulie that the eviction is going to cause so much distrust within The Revolution alliance because of them trying to figure out who it was that flipped. Paulie tells him that Paul’s alliance has been underestimating James and Frank when it comes to competition as if the two of them didn’t win a bunch during their season. James tells him that is good cause he wants to be the underdog and will have to lose the HOH comp anyways because he wants Victor to be eligible for nomination.
3:55 PM BBT: Bronte tells Bridgette that it seems like Paulie is going home, but says that she doesn’t know if they have a trick up their sleeve. Bridgette asks what happens if Jozea does end up going home. Bronte tells her that they would have to win HOH, otherwise they’re likely going to be sent home.
4:35 PM BBT: Jozea tells Natalie that he can’t stand Paulie because of how good he thinks his social game is. Natalie questions what they’ll do to the people who flip-flops on him. Jozea told her that they’ll get them out.
5:00 PM BBT: Frank tells Jozea that when he talks to Paulie, he has to make him think he’s going to have his vote. Jozea says of course, that it’s fine because he trusts him and Day more than most in the house. Jozea adds that him and Day will go far with his group while they get everyone else out. Jozea tells Frank about Paulie throwing out scenarios on one of the first nights about getting Day or Frank out.
5:10 PM BBT: Bronte tells Bridgette and Natalie that nobody is making an effort to save Paulie and it’s getting weird. Natalie agrees, saying that it’s scary. Bronte tells them that if Jozea does end up going home, it’s because of Paul, Victor, and Joeza running their mouth too much.
Bronte tells the girls that Nicole and Corey have become a bit of a power couple, so she plans to nominate the two of them to split them up once she wins HOH.
5:15 PM BBT: Paulie and Tiffany go over the idea of telling Paul’s group about the vote a few hours before the eviction so that they can protect themselves from any fallout and if any of them were to win the HOH. Paulie tells her that she believes Paul is the strongest out of that group. Tiffany tells him that she believes it’s Natalie because she’d be good at endurance competitions. Tiffany tells him that they could make a deal with Natalie and Paul that they won’t put them up if they agree to not put either of them up. Paulie tells her that Paul has a big mouth, so he wouldn’t trust making any deal with him. Tiffany tells him that they just can’t let people know they’re working together, otherwise people will put them both up on the block. Paulie agrees, saying that they have a clear path to victory as long as they can protect themselves from both sides.
5:45 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Tiffany that she needs to be careful because she is making James nervous by talking to the other side. Tiffany tells her that he’s the one who is talking to the other people all day and says that it makes her sad that James would question her loyalty. Tiffany adds that she makes James nervous because in his mind, she’s Vanessa. Day tells her that there are more of them who feel that James is the iffy one, while it’s only James who feels that way about her.
6:05 PM BBT: Tiffany tells Michelle that James doesn’t trust her for some reason and now is thinking about nominating her.
6:15 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Nicole that Tiffany found out about James questioning her loyalty and is now freaking out about it. Day adds that they have to be careful about what they say to Tiffany in front of Michelle. Nicole tells her that she is going to talk to Tiffany because she doesn’t want to deal with this.
6:25 PM BBT: Nicole asks Tiffany if she is mad at her. Tiffany says she isn’t, that she just found out a bunch of stuff and she is pissed about it, but not at Nicole.
6:27 PM BBT: James joins Tiffany on the hammock. Tiffany tells him that she feels like he looks at her and sees her sister when that just isn’t the case. James tells her that she is like her sister, but know they’re not the same. Tiffany tells him that she doesn’t want any weirdness between them. James says there isn’t and that he appreciates her coming to talk to him.
6:45 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells James that she believes Tiffany overheard their conversation because Tiffany came up to her and said that she heard that James doesn’t trust her.
6:50 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Tiffany that she tried defending her to James by saying that Tiffany had only been talking with the other side of the house because she knew she was their target. Day adds that she shouldn’t tell anyone about why she’s upset because it would draw unneeded and unwanted attention. Day tells her that she feels bad because maybe she shouldn’t have told her about James, but she felt like she had to because she has her back. Tiffany says that she’s glad Day did tell her and to not be sorry.
Day tells Tiffany that it’s going to be hard to get the guys in the Eight Pack alliance out of the house. They both agree that they could use Paul and Paulie to get the other guys in their group out.
7:05 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Michelle that her and Tiffany were plotting how to get the guys of the Eight Pack out. Day tells her that Tiffany said they could use Paul and Paulie to get them out for them. Michelle tells her that James makes her nervous. Day agrees, saying that everyone in the house is going to think he’s weak because he fell off first during the first competition and will be throwing the next HOH to get Victor out. Day tells her that Zakiyah has been friendly with everyone, which means that if she made final two, they’d all vote for her because she hasn’t ruffled any feathers. Day adds that she also doesn’t want to sit next to Frank because he’s been doing the bro thing with all the guys.
9:20 PM BBT: Frank tells Da’Vonne and Zakiyah that if Tiffany does vote the other way, she will be shooting herself in the foot. Day tells them that Tiffany has been bringing unnecessary attention to herself by being so emotional in front of everyone about what James said about her.
9:35 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells James that Tiffany is making everyone uncomfortable and that Frank said they don’t need to have an alliance of eight. James asks if they do decided to cut numbers, should they get rid of Tiffany or Michelle. Day tells him that Tiffany is close to Paulie too. Day adds that she hasn’t even been telling the Eight Pack all the information because her core alliance is with the returnees.
11:00 PM BBT: Frank asks Nicole if she has a final two with James. Nicole tells him that she would never take James to the final two. Frank asks why, and Nicole tells him that she rather be sitting next to him at the end. They both agree to take each other to the final two.
11:20 PM BBT: Michelle tells Nicole and Tiffany that James is the worst about slipping up about their Eight Pack alliance, so who knows what he has been saying to the girls. Michelle adds that they need to start distancing themselves from him.
11:40 PM BBT: Frank tells Natalie that half of his team is on the block. Natalie begins grilling him about him voting to evict Jozea because of that fact. Frank says that he’s going to vote with the house. Natalie questions him again, asking again if he’s sure he’s going to vote against his own team and if he’s sure his vote hasn’t already been settled.
12:40 AM BBT: Victor tells Paul and Jozea that the reason Paulie has been acting confident is because nobody has told him that he’s going home, so he probably assumes that he is safe.
12:45 AM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie and Bridgette that Paulie has been acting so calm, so there might be a plan going on that they don’t know about. Bronte finally says that they might be screwed and that it is too late for them to switch sides now.
The three girls begin talking about Jozea’s idea that once they get to jury with their group, they’re going to start volunteering to go up and there will be no backstabbing or scheme. Bronte tells them that they’re not going to be volunteering for anything. Bronte adds that she loves those three guys, but she hates them at the same time and will not them take the Spy Girls down. Natalie tells them that after they get far with the idiots, they’re going to have to put them up because they’re without a doubt going to target them instantly.
Bronte begins going over scenarios that would involve certain new houseguests flipping their vote to keep Paulie over Jozea in order to earn the returnees trust since they know the vets know the game better. Natalie said it’s possible.
