After a hectic night last night, the live feeds picked up right where they left off. Paul, Victor, and Bronte are still upset with James, but what they don’t know is that James is willing to do something that they weren’t, and that’s actually confront them about it, which is exactly what James decided to do today.
9:35 AM BBT: Jozea tells Bronte that he feels secure that he’ll stay in the house. Bronte agrees, saying he’s not going home and it’s going to feel good watching Paulie finally be evicted. Bronte brings up James again, saying that he was America’s Favorite and she doesn’t see what America saw in him. Paul tells her that if there is an ant in his bed because of James’ pranks, he’s going to go Rambo and start kicking people in the head.
10:00 AM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie that even if James, Frank, Michelle, Tiffany, and Corey flip their votes, they’ll still have the majority to get Paulie out.
10:45 AM BBT: Victor begins being purposely loud so that James can hear him upstairs. He starts yelling about pranks being petty. Jozea chimes in, saying there are a lot of people starving in this world while James is wasting food.
11:00 AM BBT: James goes to Paul and Victor to stir things up, saying that pranks are stupid and petty. Victor begins talking about all the ants that he’s bringing into the house by having food all over the floor. James tells him that they don’t bite and that they’re going to have ants regardless. Victor tells him that it doesn’t help that he’s throwing food in their room. James tells him that he can put crackers in his bed if he’d like. James adds that Victor needs to lighten up, they’re not at home anymore, they’d on Big Brother 18, and says he needs to lighten up. James begins making jokes about some of the trash on the table in front of them, picking it up and taking it to the trash while saying how it’s petty for people to have not thrown this away because of the ants it’ll attract. Paul changes the subject to chess, asking James for tips on how to beat Tiffany and if he knows any of Tiffany’s moves.
11:05 AM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie that there is no doubt in her mind that Frank and James are voting to send Jozea home. Bronte adds that it’s going to come down to Zakiyah and Day’s vote. Natalie says that those two girls are always upstairs with Nicole’s group. Bronte tells her that if Day and Zakiyah vote out Jozea and she manages to win the next HOH, they’ll be the targets. Bronte adds that there is not some master plan going on right now, she says there just can’t be. Natalie tells her that she’s going to smile and be sweet, but says she’s going to play dirty. Bronte tells her that James will be going home next week as long as things go according to plan.
Natalie says that Paul and Victor should have shut up about this whole James situation. Bronte agrees, saying that they should have gotten six secure votes and stop talking because the number of secure votes they have now is only going to go downhill. Bronte tells Natalie that she wants to kick James’ “little Asian ass back to Hong Kong”.
11:30 AM BBT: Paul and James are having a friendly talk upstairs. Paul begins telling James that some people can take a joke while others can’t, that he’s been trying to get Victor to lighten up but he just won’t. James tells him that if Victor wanted to be a robot, he could have just stayed home. Paul tells James that he doesn’t want to be grouped together with the people he surrounds himself with because he likes hanging with them personally. James tells Paul that if the pranks were bothering Victor so bad, he should have come told him about it and he would have stopped. Paul tells him that he personally loves pranks and that if he does end up having a problem with them, he’d bring it to James.
12:35 PM BBT: James suggests the idea to Corey that they could nominate Paul and Victor, then have Bronte as the back-up nominee if either of those two were to win the power of veto.
1:50 PM BBT: Paul tells Victor that he has to keep his calm, that he can’t tell anyone but he knows that Corey and James are working together and that he heard them say they want to go after his Queen, Natalie, just to get to Victor.
2:25 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Frank that Paul and Victor have been talking about how they’re going to put the two of them up.
5:45 PM BBT: Frank tells Paulie and Corey that Jozea, Victor, and Paul are finally starting to wise up and realize that they haven’t always been in the loop. Paulie questions if they were ever in the loop. Frank tells Paulie that he can say “bye” to Jozea before the eviction since he’s just going to think that he’s admitting defeat.
6:05 PM BBT: Frank tells Corey that the best case scenario for them would be for Paulie to win HOH so that the two of them can compete next week and Victor would still be pissed and shook about it.
6:25 PM BBT: Jozea tells Natalie and Bronte that Frank is ready to go and vote out Paulie, and he just wanted to make sure that the two of them are. Both Natalie and Bronte say that they are. Jozea begins telling them that they can start referring to James as “Buddha”.
7:00 PM BBT: Frank begins to tell James about Natalie’s reaction to finding out Victor asked Nicole on a date, but is cut off by Nicole, asking him where he heard that from and how it managed to get out. Nicole also asks how Bridgette and Bronte found out about it. James tells her that he told them. Nicole gets upset, saying that he has the biggest mouth in the house. James tells her that they’re trying to plant seeds and that is what Big Brother is about. Nicole tells her that now she’s going to be one of Victor’s main targets. Frank tells her that she doesn’t need to worry because all the heat is on James because both Victor and Paul think that he made it up to try and turn Natalie against them. They all begin discussing ways that they could turn Natalie against The Revolution. Nicole tells them not to tell Natalie about Victor asking her out on a date.
7:40 PM BBT: Paul tells Victor and Jozea that he went upstairs and Paulie, Nicole, Michelle, Corey, James, Day, Zakiyah, and Tiffany were all up there. Victor tells him that they’re probably just hanging out and says that they’ll be alright. Paul tells them that they could be working together and have been lying to their faces, and if that is the case, they’re going to be screwed. Paul asks them how much they trust Day and Zakiyah. Victor tells them that he trusts them enough to hang upstairs and just nod their head and smile while still voting out Paulie. Paul again tries to warn them that the people upstairs outweigh them. Jozea tells him that the people upstairs know better than to not vote Paulie out. Jozea adds that he can trust Da’Vonne because she wouldn’t turn on him after she was voted out by a majority of Caucasians last year.
7:45 PM BBT: Frank tells Natalie that he doesn’t want her to get the wool pulled over her eyes. Natalie tells him that it’s a low blow if she is getting lied to. Frank tells her about Victor saying that all the girls in the house as expendable. Frank asks her if James seems like the malicious type, to which she says no, and Frank responds with that is exactly his point, that Victor and Paul had been making things up. Frank tells her that he actually respects women because he loves his mom and nana. Natalie questions why he’d vote with Victor’s group after this. Frank tells her that he said he was voting with the majority and the majority is starting to shift. Frank adds that he just doesn’t want her to get caught in the wrong boat.
8:00 PM BBT: Jozea asks Tiffant what is on her mind for tomorrow. Tiffany tells him that everyone she talks to plans on voting with the majority, so that is what she plans to do also. Jozea tells her that after tomorrow, he wants her to be more involved in their alliance and actually take the lead. Tiffany asks him who their enemies are. Jozea tells him that the two people they are really cool with outside of their main group is Day and Frank, everyone else can go. Jozea adds that after this eviction, they’ll be safe for at least a month and a couple weeks.
8:05 PM BBT: Nicole tells Natalie that she believes that Victor was only flirting with her as strategy. Natalie tells her that even if Victor did ask her out, she would never hate her because she’s a girl’s girl. Natalie adds that she wouldn’t even be mad if she kissed Victor. Nicole assures her that would never happen.
8:15 PM BBT: Frank tells Michelle, Zakiyah, Da’Vonne, and Paulie about his chat with Natalie and the possibility of her flipping to their side.
8:15 PM BBT: Natalie tells Tiffany that she just wants to make sure that she is voting with the majority of the house. Natalie adds that she doesn’t want to get lied to again and right now she’s trying to figured out who lied to her and about what. Tiffany tells Natalie that she’ll start telling her more information and will have her back. Natalie says she’ll do the same and the two girls pinky swear to protect each other. Natalie tells Tiffany that after tomorrow, she’ll have a clean slate to determine who she’s going to work with. Natalie adds that she feels like she knows who is going home and says that tomorrow is going to be really interesting. Natalie tells Tiffany that she has two different groups telling her to do two different things, all while just trying to figure out who is telling the truth. Tiffany tells her that she’ll figure it all out tomorrow after the vote.
8:40 PM BBT: Nicole is upset with Frank about telling Natalie that Victor really did ask her out because she was used as a wedge like this in her season when it came to Caleb and Amber. She says that she is mad at herself for even letting it get out. Corey tells her that everything will be better tomorrow after the eviction and that what happened today is already old news. Nicole tells Corey that Frank is the smartest one in the house, which is something they could use against him later, but for now she wants to keep him for a while.
9:05 PM BBT: Tiffany tells Da’Vonne, Frank, and Zakiyah that Natalie doesn’t trust her alliance because she believes they have a guy sub-alliance going. Tiffany adds that Natalie is someone they could who is on the other side of the house that could be used to help get rid of her other alliance members. Tiffany also tells them that Natalie is 100% wanting to vote with the real majority if they wanted to tell her.
9:20 PM BBT: Frank tells Corey that if Victor and Paul do find out about what he told Natalie, the heat will be on him instead of Nicole since Nicole didn’t want that conversation to happen from the start.
9:25 PM BBT: Paul goes on another rant about Michelle, saying that he’ll slap her sunburn off if she keeps talking to him like that, calling her a bitch, saying that he hates her, hates James, and wants them both gone. Paul goes on to say that he wants to be able to ruin Michelle’s life before she leaves the house, isolate her, make her go crazy so that she never watches Big Brother again.
Victor tells Paul and Bronte that he was told by production that he isn’t allowed to hit people like he had threatened. Jozea tells them that James is the glue to the other side of the house and if they get him out, they’ll all come looking to them for safety. Bronte says that they need to put up James and Nicole. Paul told her that they can’t do that because if they put up two returnees, the returnees that are actually on their side will get scared. Bronte tells them that they can’t keeping asking people like Zakiyah and Da’Vonne about their vote because they’re on board now, but it is possible that they could start thinking they don’t trust them if they just keep asking.
Zakiyah joined their conversation, and they ended up revealing that their plan is to nominate James and Nicole, have Tiffany be the Roadkill nominee, and leave Corey as the back-up nominee if any of them were to win the POV.
9:30 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Frank that she doesn’t know if Tiffany is up to something or not. Frank tells her that Tiffany wants to act like she’s apart of all their alliance moves when she isn’t. Frank adds that Tiffany wants to play both sides of the house like they are so that she seems like she’s actually playing the game. Frank does say that Tiffany wanted Jozea’s side of the house to be shocked, so it is possible that Tiffany is on board with their plan.
10:00 PM BBT: Natalie tells Bridgette that if she makes a promise to someone, she is going to keep her word, but moving forward she isn’t going to promise anyone her vote until the day of the eviction. Frank joins them, telling them that he’s not going to vote out Paulie because he’s his teammate. Natalie asks him why he waited so long to tell her which way he’d be voting and then ask her for her vote. Frank tells her that he was just worried. Frank goes on to explain that Jozea’s group lied to his face too, which is why he can’t trust them, while Natalie didn’t lie to him. Natalie promises to not throw Frank under the bus, but says that she already made a promise to vote to keep Jozea. Frank tells her that it doesn’t matter who she votes for tomorrow because nobody will have a target placed on her back. Frank tells her that Jozea could have stayed but he kept digging his hole deeper and deeper. Natalie questions how she is supposed to know that he isn’t lying to her. Frank tells her that she hasn’t done anything wrong while other people have.
10:40 PM BBT: Paul tells Nicole that he would rather go with the majority of the house, which he’s sure is voting against Paulie. Nicole tells him that she doesn’t know how people are going to vote because nobody talks to her about it since she doesn’t get one.
10:42 PM BBT: Natalie tells Bronte and Victor that she has a feeling that Jozea is going home. Victor tells her that Jozea isn’t going anywhere and that they have the numbers to ensure his safety. Bronte tells her that as long as Zakiyah and Day are on their side, Jozea is safe.
10:50 PM BBT: Natalie tells Frank that they just need to start building trust with each other and promises not to tell anyone about their talks. Natalie tells him again that she’s going to have to stay true to her promise that she made about her vote to keep Jozea. Frank tells her that it’s fine and that people will understand that. Natalie tells her that she knows that Victor and Paul are targets, which makes her question how she isn’t one too. Frank tells her that she isn’t and it’s something she’ll just have to trust him on. Natalie tells Frank that she wishes he would have come to her earlier. Frank tells her that he didn’t have any information to share with her that’d gain her trust. Natalie asks Frank what her and Bronte are going to do if they turn on Victor and Paul. Frank tells her that there isn’t an alliance, that there is just a majority of people on their side.
11:00 PM BBT: Victor tells Nicole that he never asked her on a date, to which Nicole tells him that she knows that. Victor says that when he heard that, he wanted to go ring James’ neck. Victor adds that James is the next one to go and that he’ll throw the HOH to make sure that James is eligible for nomination.
11:05 PM BBT: James tells Natalie that if he told her anything, it was because he was trying to help her, not trying to dictate what she does, only try to warn her of possible trouble coming. Natalie tells him that he’s her teammate and she’s going to look out for him. James tells her that he is going to always be looking out in her best interest, even if it makes tanking his own game in the process.
11:10 PM BBT: Frank tells James that Natalie isn’t going to change her vote because she doesn’t want to break a previous promise, which is fine.
11:10 PM BBT: Natalie tells Bronte that James was just telling her that he was trying to look out for her, but it ended up backfiring on him. Natalie adds that she has a feeling that Jozea is going home. Bronte asks if it’s a feeling or if someone told her. Natalie asks her who would nominate their own team as a pawn, them vote them out. Bronte tells her that the only way Paulie stays is if Zakiyah and Da’Vonne flip their vote. Natalie tells her that after tomorrow’s eviction, they need to think about their game and possibly leaving Paul and Victor if it’s what is good for them. Natalie adds that Victor, Paul, and Jozea are crashing their games into the ground and she doesn’t want them two to become targets because the three guys did. Natalie tells Bronte that moving forward, she’s going to vote with the house and they’ll find out who the house is tomorrow.
11:35 PM BBT: Nicole tells Frank that she doesn’t think she should have told Natalie anything because Victor is going to find out about it. Frank tells her that he’s not worried about Victor because even if he finds out that he’s not on their side, Day and Zakiyah will still be Victor and Paul’s alliance.
11:50 PM BBT: Natalie tells Bridgette and Bronte that the other side of the house is gunning for the guys on their team and that what they’re gonna talk about cannot get out. Bridgette asks what is best for the three of them. Bronte says that she isn’t voting to send Jozea home, so they shouldn’t even ask her. Bronte adds that if Jozea does go home, yes, they will need to find a new plan. Bridgette agrees, saying that if Paulie does stay, the other side of the house will be too strong. Natalie tells them to just pray that Jozea stays.
12:10 AM BBT: Nicole tells Corey that he is one of Victor’s targets and that he needs to strike at Victor before Victor gets to him first. Michelle, Tiffany, and Paulie join them. Tiffany tells them that the move Frank made today was perfect for him because no those girls will be loyal to him first for bringing them into the fold. Tiffany adds that information is power and that it needs to be used very carefully because what Frank did was a “I’m gonna do my own thing” type of deal while it should have been a group thing. Nicole says that she doesn’t care, but Tiffany insists they make it a group consensus basis in the future. Paulie tells her that Frank’s move didn’t change thing, only less with be blindsided tomorrow. James comes into the room, telling them that he saw Bronte pull Jozea aside, which made Tiffany and Nicole start to worry, with Tiffany saying that this is what she worried about. Zakiyah comes in and tells them that Jozea and Bronte are in the kitchen, that they haven’t talked to each other for more than two seconds, so Bronte couldn’t have told him.
12:30 AM BBT: Paulie tells Tiffany that he trusts Frank. Tiffany tells him that she never said he shouldn’t trust him, just that saying things carelessly can have repercussions. Tiffany leaves, leaving Corey with Paulie. Paulie tells him that Frank did underestimate how much Victor’s group would panic and that the last thing they need is girls within their group to stay saying that Frank did something irrationally because they’ll outnumber the guys.
12:35 AM BBT: Jozea tells Victor that Bridgette is frantic right now and saying that Paulie might stay. Jozea adds that James’ group is trying to cause chaos, that it’s just a part of their plan. Bronte joins them, saying that she’s upset because of how erratic Bridgette is currently acting with these gut feelings that Paulie will stay. Paul tells her that if Jozea does go home, they’re going to have to go into Rambo mode. Jozea tells them that it doesn’t matter what is said because they already have a solid alliance of six and the plan to get Paulie out is already in motion. Jozea tells them that if he is evicted, it’s going to be a good live show because he’s going to cuss everyone out.
12:50 AM BBT: Tiffany begins questioning Frank about all things relating to Natalie, which got Frank defensive and said that he honestly doesn’t want to talk about any of it. Tiffany tells him that she doesn’t like his attitude and says he needs to chill out. Tiffany tells him that it’s his attitude that she can’t stand before storming out of the HOH room. Nicole comes out of the bathroom laughing at Frank, saying that he can’t tell a girl on Big Brother that he doesn’t want to hear what she has to say.
12:55 AM BBT: Tiffany begins crying downstairs. Nicole tells her that Frank acknowledged what he did was wrong. Tiffany explains to her that this isn’t the first time that Frank has treated her this way. Tiffany goes on to say that Frank is a male chauvinist, that Jozea may be bad and the target, but at least he isn’t a chauvinist. Tiffany says that she isn’t used to dealing with people who have an aggressive personality. James tells her that is just the way Frank is, he’s sassy with everyone.
1:05 AM BBT: Da’Vonne begins talking to Frank about the girls freaking out because Tiffany is freaking out, which in reality it should be like “who cares?”. Day tells Frank that the seeds he planted aren’t for tomorrow, they’re for later in the game and that is just something that Nicole, Tiffany, and Michelle don’t get. Frank agrees, saying that even if his plan does backfire, all the heat will be on him because he’s the one who initiated it and said everything.
1:10 AM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Tiffany that she was questioning him aggressively, but that is because she’s a straight shooter who is honest. Tiffany tells her that she doesn’t like Frank’s style of communication because he’s kind of a chauvinist. Day tells her that Frank is wanting to talk with her 1 on 1. Tiffany says she’s not ready for that and is already tired of Frank constantly apologizing, that she’s just done with him. Zakiyah tells Tiffany that she’s going to have to accept Frank for who he is and Frank will have to do the same for her. Tiffany says that she just doesn’t feel close enough to Frank to act like they’ve been friends for years and be aggressive when talking.
1:10 AM BBT: Nicole tells Frank that Tiffany is downstairs crying and screaming along with being very pissed at him. Frank tells that is fine, that he’s already apologized to her once this summer when she got overly emotional and he’s not going to do it again. Frank tells her that if Tiffany wants to build a moat and isolate herself for a few weeks while they pick people off, that is fine. Paul joins them in the HOH room and asks why Tiffany is upset. Frank tells him it’s because Tiffany got reminded of the ending of Old Yeller. Paul leaves, and Nicole tells Frank that Bridgette knows everything because Tiffany let it slip. Frank tells her that it doesn’t matter because Bridgette isn’t going to spread his business because she’s the one who helped sell Natalie on the idea in the first place.
1:50 AM BBT: Paulie tells Tiffany that her fight with Frank might be beneficial because Victor’s group will come to him trying to get information, and he can just get them off their path by feeding them crap. Michelle begins to tell Tiffany that Frank is essential to their alliance because of all his relationships with people who aren’t in the Eight Pack and the fact that he knows so much about the game. Tiffany tells them that she’s over the Frank incident and just doesn’t want to talk about it anymore. Michelle tells her that she wants to look out for her best interest and says that she just needs to ask questions more casually when it comes to Frank or Da’Vonne.
2:05 AM BBT: Zakiyah tells Nicole and Da’Vonne that she’s just trying to think of a way to get out of tomorrow’s eviction without being hated because she’ll be blindsiding Paul and Victor. Nicole tells her that she’ll always have her back, that even if they don’t forgive her, they still have a strong alliance that can target them. Day tells her that she’ll run to Paul and ask him what happened just before the eviction, then manage the fallout afterwards, telling him that she was pulled into a room and told the vote switched and she didn’t want to stick out.
Nicole tells Zakiyah and Da’Vonne that she believes their group will be fine and that Frank and Tiffany will make amends. Day agrees, saying that the two of them are both just stubborn.
2:20 AM BBT: James tells Natalie about all of his issues with Victor, that the gist of it is that he’s been a continuous nitpicker. James tells her that he wants to do everything he can to try and help her make it at least to jury so that she can pay off her student loans. James asks her who she thinks is going home. Natalie tells him that it’s obvious that Jozea is the one who is going. Natalie adds that Jozea, Paul, and Victor know 0% of what is going to happen tomorrow. James tells her that the group she is currently rolling with isn’t a good group and that the two guys that are leading it are targets. Natalie tells him that she knows, that she’s analyzed it herself.
Natalie asks James not to screw her over because the only people she trusts are him and Bronte. James tells her that he’s not going to screw her over, but will help her in every way possible, coming to her to give her advice on when she needs to talk to someone and other tips like that.
3:10 AM BBT: Frank tells Corey that he almost hopes that the HOH is a team competition because he’s certain that nearly all the other teams will throw it since they have multiple members in each.
3:15 AM BBT: Jozea tells Natalie that he’s not worried about the vote because they have a solid six and that they might even have Tiffany since she’s currently mad at someone at someone in James’ group.
