It’s eviction day in the Big Brother house, which means we’re going to have more drama unlike any other day in the week. Jozea, Paul, and Victor still have no idea about what’s coming, meaning that plenty of fallout is to come after the eviction is over and Jozea has been blindsided.
1:10 PM BBT: Victor tells Bronte that he has to win HOH because he believes that him and Paul are on the chopping block.
1:15 PM BBT: Frank tells Paul and Victor that he could just put the target on Tiffany because everyone was already feeling iffy about her before. Frank asks them if the plan is to put up James and Tiffany. Victor confirms. Victor tells Paul and Frank that he’ll throw the HOH so that James can be nominated while the two of them win it.
1:35 PM BBT: Paul tells Jozea that Frank really is on their side and that he wants Tiffany out next week. Paul adds that he just can’t imagine Frank lying to him after all they’ve talked about. Jozea asks if Frank has been playing both sides. Paul tells him that he has and even they’ve admitted they’re doing the same thing. Jozea tells Paul that when Paulie walks out of the door, it’s going to be the greatest pleasure of his life.
1:35 PM BBT: Frank tells Da’Vonne that it’s amazing how their planned worked without Bronte or Natalie letting Victor or Paul know anything.
1:40 PM BBT: Jozea questions Bridgette as to why she has been saying that she has a gut feeling that Paulie isn’t going home. Bridgette tells him that she didn’t say that and would never say that. Jozea tells her that he’s not going home. Bridgette tells him that she knows because he has the numbers. Jozea tells her that he can’t tell her who, but people were saying that she’s being frantic. Bridgette asks him if he has ever seen her act that way.
1:40 PM BBT: Corey and Nicole begin talking about how Frank has been covering all of his tracks among both sides of the house. Corey tells Nicole that he has a feeling that Frank could vote Paulie out to stay good with the other side of the house. Nicole tells him that she’s worried that Da’Vonne could do that too. Nicole adds that there needs to be 7 votes against Jozea or else someone has been lying to them. Corey tells her that his first thought would be Frank and he would rat him out to everyone about being the BB Roadkill. Corey adds that they could threaten Frank to be the next target if he tries to give a wonky vote. Nicole tells him that Frank is a competition beast who could come after him if Frank is feeling threatened. Nicole tells Corey that they have to trust Frank until proven otherwise because they’re in a alliance and right now they’re only speculating. Nicole adds that Day is in with Frank and she could tell the way she was acting dumb after Frank tried flipping Natalie. Nicole tells him that she can tell something is up with Da’Vonne, so she trusts Frank more than her.
2:05 PM BBT: Frank tells Michelle that he can’t hold Tiffany’s hand for the next couple weeks, that she needs to buck up. Frank begins talking about the possibility of someone returning to the house before jury, in which case they need to send them right back out the door. Nicole joins them, asking Frank what the vote is supposed to be. Frank tells her that it’ll be 7-4 against Jozea. Nicole asks Frank if he’s going to do damage control right away. Frank tells her that he will if he can get some time alone with Paul and Victor, says he’ll tell them that they were crazy to think he would vote out a strong teammate over Jozea.
2:20 PM BBT: Bridgette tells Frank that Jozea approached her and made it seem like she should be worried. Frank tells her that she has nothing to worry about and it’s likely that not a single vote is cast her way. Frank adds that Victor’s side doesn’t even have enough votes to flip the eviction on her even if they wanted to.
2:55 PM BBT: Victor tells Jozea that even if Natalie did flip, he has nothing to worry about because Frank would be the new 6th secure vote. Jozea tells him that he’s going to lash out if he ends up getting blindsided.
3:05 PM BBT: Nicole tells James that they have to stop bringing people into the fold or trying to interchange members because that is how people find out about alliances. James knows, saying that if someone does end up leaving, Frank has Natalie who could replace them. Nicole tells James that Frank couldn’t put up Tiffany because of how crazy she’d get. James tells her that it would have to be the BB Roadkill nomination.
3:30 PM BBT: Paulie tells Frank that Natalie told him about his promise to Jozea and that she plans to keep it. Paulie adds that he let Natalie know that he isn’t targeting her, but is targeting Victor and Natalie told him that she’s not opposed to that.
6:45 PM BBT: Jozea is evicted. Read the details here.
7:45 PM BBT: Paulie wins HOH. Read the details here.
7:50 PM BBT: James apologizes to America for throwing the HOH competition. Tells us that he had to do it so that Victor and Bronte could be nominated.
7:50 PM BBT: Paul and Victor both agree that James threw the competition so that the two of them could be eligible for nomination. Frank joins them and Paul tells him that he knows Jozea was a loose cannon and says that he even tried telling Jozea to ton it down but it didn’t work. Victor tells Frank that he can’t trust anybody at this point because everyone voted to keep Paulie, which means he’s the one who is likely going up next.
8:00 PM BBT: Nicole and Paulie celebrate Paulie winning HOH. Paulie tells her that he’s sticking to the plan and will nominate Victor alongside Paul, Bronte or Natalie.
8:00 PM BBT: Frank and Tiffany have a reconciliation, both apologize to one another. Frank tells her that he believes they butted heads because they’re so alike. Tiffany agrees, saying that after she thought about it, she was being aggressive when questioning him.
8:05 PM BBT: Natalie tells Bronte that they have to join James’ said because Paul and Victor are going to be the two targets this week. Bronte tells her that after Paul and Victor are taken out, they’re next. Natalie says that by joining James’ group, it buys them at least two weeks to try and get in with all the girls within James’ group. Bronte tells her that she’s on board because Natalie is the only person she does and will ever trust 100%. Bronte adds that they need to talk to Paulie about them not going up because they did prove they are loyal by keeping their promise to Jozea.
8:05 PM BBT: Paulie tells Tiffany, James, and Michelle that he’s putting Victor up with Paul or Bronte. James tells him that when Victor or Paul question why James isn’t going up, he can just tell him that James leveraged his eviction vote for safety this week. James adds that he’s willing to take another bullet for the team and go on slop so that Victor is weak for the veto competition.
Paulie tells Tiffany and Michelle that Frank trusts Bridgette, but says he’s trying to get Frank to realize that he can’t. Paulie tells the two girls that if Victor does win the veto, he wants to send either Bronte or Natalie home because of how much the girls outnumber the guys. Paulie adds that while the girls do have more, James and Frank have Natalie and Bridgette on their side, which makes him worry because he believes Frank and James would keep those two girls over him. Tiffany says that is what she was trying to say yesterday. Paulie says that he’s going to make sure that those two girls can’t work on Frank or James this week.
8:15 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Nicole and James that all week Paul, Victor, Jozea, and Bronte were talking crap about Paulie, so now they’re going to reap what they sewed. The three of them do agree that they like Natalie and should try to convince Paulie not to put her up.
8:30 PM BBT: Victor tells Bronte that he doesn’t know if him or James is the target this week. Bronte explains to him that James threw the competition so that he could get him nominated. Bronte tells him that Zakiyah and Da’Vonne are the ones who flipped their vote. Victor says that he knows, that those two girls are scumbags. Victor tells her that him and Paul will get nominated, one of them will win veto, the other will go home and that process will repeat until their entire side is gone.
8:50 PM BBT: Nicole tells Corey that she feels safer this week than she did last week even though she was the HOH. Nicole adds that Natalie came to talk to her before the eviction and wanted to be cool with her, but was cheering for Victor the entire HOH competition after she fell off first.
9:05 PM BBT: Nicole tells Michelle and Da’Vonne that Paulie said he doesn’t want to put up Natalie if he doesn’t have to. Michelle tells him that he’s already changed his mind on that. Nicole tells them that she just wants to try and get Paulie to nominate Bronte. Day tells her that even if Paulie doesn’t nominate Bronte, they could win Roadkill and nominate her themselves.
9:10 PM BBT: Frank tells James that they might want to think about getting Paul and Bronte put up, then backdoor Victor. James tells him that he’s starting to come around to that idea because if Victor wins the veto, this week was for nothing.
9:35 PM BBT: Paul tells Victor that they can use the girl’s outnumber the guys angle on Paulie because if another guy leaves, they’ll be outnumbered to a point where it doesn’t even matter if a guy wins HOH because the girls will have all the numbers. Victor tells him that he could have won the HOH if it wasn’t for James throwing it. Paul tells him that they need to remember that Nicole is the one who put Paulie up, so there is a chance that he puts her up.
9:40 PM BBT: Victor and Paul tell Paulie that the girls outnumber them 8-6, so he should consider leveling that. Victor adds that Paulie saw how loyal they were to Jozea, that they could do the same with him. Paul tells him that there are a few manipulators in the house that he could nominate, like James. Victor tells him that he understands if he is going to be nominated, but if he doesn’t, they could be loyal and go far. Bronte joins them, saying that all she can offer Paulie is that she is a strong competitor who would be loyal to him. Paulie asks them what they think about one of them going on the block with James to ensure that they win the veto over him. Victor tells him that it’s a possibility. Victor tells him that if they let another guy get sent home and someone like Natalie or Bridgette win HOH, all the guys are going to be screwed.
10:00 PM BBT: Day and Zakiyah agree that the pecking order should be Victor, Bronte, Paul, Bridgette, Natalie, then James. Zakiyah tells her that Frank is in their group, but he for sure has a thing with Corey. Day tells her that she feels like if Tiffany were to win the BB Roadkill, she would nominate one of them two, so they need to make sure that doesn’t happen. Day adds that everyone thought that Jozea was going to blow up, but it’s actually going to be Tiffany who does it once she’s nominated.
11:05 PM BBT: James tells Da’Vonne, Nicole, and Zakiyah that he told Paulie to get ahead and put Team Unicorn up as have-nots to weaken Victor, but if he does go on slop, Victor better be one of the original nominees.
11:05 PM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie that James is one of the smartest people in the house, so if Paulie had even an ounce of intelligence he would use this week to get James out.
11:30 PM BBT: Paulie tells Zakiyah that Paul and Victor’s argument was that if they get another guy out, it’ll be 8 girls and 5 guys.
12:05 AM BBT: Bronte tells Paul that she doesn’t understand why Day and Zakiyah sided with the vets. Paul tells her it’s because they’re idiots. Bronte tells him that they have to convince Paulie that they’re the loyal ones. Paul agrees, telling her that she doesn’t trust James or Day, but does trust Nicole and Frank. Bronte tells Paul that she believes she’ll be put up with Victor. Paul tells her that they could convince Paulie to turn against the vets if they explain how they’d have the controlling majority if all the newbies united. Paul adds that at the least they need to get someone put up who is equally hated as Victor, which might be Tiffany since people seem to be pissed at her.
12:15 AM BBT: Paulie tells Zakiyah that he just wants Paul, Victor, Bronte, Natalie, and Bridgette out. Zakiyah agrees, saying the only ones she feels secure with is their nine. Paulie agrees, saying they don’t have to worry about anything right now. Paulie tells Zakiyah that he wants to get Natalie and Bridgette out soon because they run the risk of being floaters and switching sides each week.
12:35 AM BBT: Paulie gets his HOH room.
1:50 AM BBT: Paulie tells Paul that out of his group, he’s the most liked. Paul says that it was never about his group to him, that he was just tossed into the mix with them and couldn’t get out because some of them were on his team. Paulie explains to Paul that he likes him and trusts him, but the person he doesn’t trust is Victor because he believes Victor is the type of person to backstab anyone at any moment. Paulie pitches the idea to Paul that he could go up with Victor since he’s so good at winning vetoes and that way if either Paul or Paulie win the veto, Victor stays up, Paul comes down, and a girl goes up as the replacement.
2:20 AM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie that Paul is upstairs pitching all these crazy ideas while she just plans to keep it simple and say that she just wants to make it to jury so that she can get the stipend. Bronte tells Natalie about how Paulie got sassy with her for the first time and says that she doesn’t know if it’s been something that Paulie has been holding in or if it’s because Paul threw her under the bus at some point. Bronte adds that moving forward she is only going to trust Natalie and that if she wants to have James’ back, she’ll have James’ back too. Natalie tells Bronte that they just need to be smart and let Paul and Victor dig their own grave. Natalie adds that if someone wants to make a deal with her, she needs to make that deal. Natalie tells Bronte that they have to go against Paul and Victor by letting the majority know that they both want those two nominated.
2:50 AM BBT: Tiffany tells Natalie that James won America’s Favorite for a reason, that he’s trust worthy and a good guy. Natalie asys that she knows, that it’s only Victor and Paul who don’t like James because she is a prankster just like him. Tiffany tells Natalie that Victor is attracted to her, but he loves Paul first because they’re bros. Tiffany adds that she has the potential to go farther than Victor, she just has to make sure that she plays it smart. Tiffany adds that she needs to be careful when Victor tries to talk to her because he always has his best interest in mind over Natalie’s. Tiffany tells Natalie that she’s going to do everything she can to keep her off the block this week.
3:20 PM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie and Bridgette that if they win POV, they cannot use it on Victor or Paul. Natalie and Bridgette both agree, saying that they’re done talking to those guys because they’re likely trying to get two of them nominated to protect themselves.
3:35 PM BBT: Paulie tells Paul that he is thinking about backdooring Victor, but Paul says he doesn’t know what that is, so Paulie explains it. Paulie goes on to say that nobody has beef with him right now, so if he were to go up as a pawn to get Victor out, he would have nothing to worry about. Paul asks him what happens if Victor ends up winning the veto. Paulie tells him that he’d put up either Bronte or Natalie and they’d go home. Paulie adds that the same people who let him know he was safe while on the block last week are the same people who want Victor gone this week. Paulie explains to Paul that if he goes up, ensures that Victor can’t come off the block, and Victor ends up going home, he’ll come out looking like a golden boy to the majority of the house and they’ll all have even more reason to trust and work with him. Paul tells him that it would look weird to Victor for Paulie to use the veto on him. Paulie explains that it wouldn’t matter what Victor thinks at that point because he’d be going home and there would be nothing he could do about being nominated.
Frank joins their conversation and tells Paul that he tried trusting Victor, but even now it still feels like he’s being lied to. Paul asks if the majority doesn’t want to work with Victor. Frank tells him that they don’t because they can’t trust him. Paul tells Paulie and Frank that backdooring Victor would be the more foolproof option, but says he doesn’t want to tell Paulie what to do.
5:20 AM BBT: Paulie tells Frank that now they just need to figure out if they want to backdoor Victor or not. Paulie tells him that he personally wants to outright nominate Victor, but at the same time a backdoor sounds safer. Frank tells him that he would prefer to have Victor nominated and then they beat him in the veto, but he’s up for either. Paulie and Frank both agree to sleep on it and then make their decision tomorrow.
