It’s veto day in the Big Brother house, which brings all the drama and fallout with it like it does every week. This week’s target has no idea that he’s fallen perfectly into a backdoor trap, all while assuming that he’s in the HOH’s alliance. He’ll likely realize it soon enough, and when he does, there will be plenty of entertainment for us to watch on the feeds.
10:05 AM BBT: Paul, Da’Vonne, and Zakiyah are made have-nots for finishing last in the most recent Head of Household competition.
10:15 AM BBT: Bronte tells Bridgette that the guys are currently running the show and there is nothing they can do about it, so they’re just going to have to let it happen. Bronte adds that as soon as a girl gets in power, all the girls have to start watching each other’s back and finally strike against the guys.
10:20 AM BBT: Corey tells Victor that he knows there is a lot of people upset with Tiffany right now. Victor agrees, telling him that the votes to evict Tiffany will be him Corey, Frank, Nicole, and Natalie.
10:40 AM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie that it seems like Victor and Corey are talking a lot. Bronte tells her that she is secretly happy that Da’Vonne and Zakiyah are have-nots because they deserve it after not telling them what was going on last week.
10:55 AM BBT: Tiffany tells Corey that if she gets Houseguest Choice, she’ll pick him to play in the veto for him. Tiffany asks who they put up next week if Victor goes home this week. Corey tells her that he honestly doesn’t know and will have to see how the rest of this week plays out. Tiffany tells him that she’s going to do something that nobody else really has and that is use the veto on one of the other nominees if she does manage to win it, so that way Victor can still be nominated.
11:30 AM BBT: Tiffany asks James if he would use the veto on someone else if she was in his position. James tells her that he would have to and that by doing that, she’d be showing the alliance that she trusts them. James adds that Victor is in a bad spot and there is nothing he can do to get out of it. Tiffany asks if Victor thinks he’s going to convince enough people to send her home. James tells her that he thinks so because he can’t of any other strategy Victor has. James tells Tiffany that when you have someone who is loyal enough to throw competitions like she could be, they tend to be the ones who stick around the longest.
12:25 PM BBT: Day and Zakiyah are chosen to play in the POV alongside Paulie, Paul, Bronte, and Tiffany.
12:25 PM BBT: Frank tells Day that he’s proud of Paul for not choosing Victor when he got Houseguest Choice. Frank adds that they can all try to win it since they’re just playing for bragging rights now. Frank tells Day and Zakiyah that he wouldn’t mind to sending Tiffany home over Paul since he has proven he’s trustworthy. Frank explains that the pecking order could be Victor, Bronte, Tiffany, then Paul or Bridgette in any order. Frank tells them that they could win the next Roadkill and secretly nominate Tiffany without telling anyone that it was them.
12:50 PM BBT: Paul tells Paulie that it takes only one girl to tell all the others that they have the big majority over the guys, then they’ll unite. Paul adds that Bridgette has a feminist personality, so she’s likely one of the girls who would do something like that.
12:55 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Zakiyah that Frank is gong to cut them all off and be sitting Next to Natalie at the end because he knows that she wouldn’t have done anything all season. Zakiyah tells her that she has noticed that he has been controlling the house and climbing his way to the top. Day tells her that Paulie would be in on it to, voting to keep Frank over either of them since guys always do that. Day tells her that Frank can’t make it to the finals. Zakiyah says that they have to put it in the other girl’s heads too because they all like Frank. Day tells her that she’s going to keep making Frank feel comfortable, making him feel like he’s running the house, but she still wants him gone. Day explains that once they send Victor, Paul, then Natalie or Bridgette home, they can rally all the girls to unite against the guys.
Da’Vonne tells Zakiyah that if anyone is sitting next to Frank, James, or Nicole, it’ll be an automatic lose. Day tells her to think about how crazy it would be for a newbie and a vet to be sitting at the final two, both gorgeous black women. Zakiyah tells her that she wouldn’t turn her back on this plan, that this is what it is. Day tells her that they have to get Corey out because Nicole is starting to get attached. Day tells her that Tiffany and Paulie would both win if they made it to the end because of the “redeeming a sibling” story line, but says that she’s not going to let that happen.
2:20 PM BBT: Paulie tells Frank that he’s trying to keep Tiffany close so that when she does blow up, he’ll be able to tell them what she has been leaking to the other side of the house. Paulie adds that in three weeks or so, they could start thinking about getting rid of Tiffany. Nicole asks Paulie if Victor has any idea that he’s getting backdoored, to which Paulie confirms that Victor knows nothing. Paulie tells them that he’ll tell Victor that he had to put him up because that is what the house wanted and that he would be signing his own death warrant by going against that.
2:40 PM BBT: Michelle asks Da’Vonne who she would pull down if she won the veto. Day tells her that she would use it on Paul because it makes sense since he’s on her team. Nicole agrees with her choice, saying it would look like the girls are already uniting against the guys if she were to pull down Bronte. Day asks Michelle who she wants to be the last guy standing with the Fatal Five. Michelle tells her that she wants it to be Corey, that she likes Frank, but says Frank is too smart. Michelle tells her that she wants to get Natalie out after Vic because at least Bronte doesn’t give sob stories. Da’Vonne agrees that it should be either Natalie or Bridgette.
3:50 PM BBT: Tiffany asks Paulie what she would do with the veto if he was in her shoes. Paulie tells her that she can try to win it, it’s just she would need to use it on someone other than herself. Tiffany tells him that she doesn’t want to look like an idiot to America for not using the veto on herself while nominated. Paulie explains to her that America will know that it makes the most sense game-wise. Paulie tells her that he’s going to tell Victor that he’s being backdoored before the veto ceremony.
6:30 PM BBT: Paulie wins the POV
6:30 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Nicole, Frank, and Paulie that Tiffany wasn’t trying to throw it, that she was getting answers from Day’s board and nobody elses. Day tells them that it makes her feel some type of way and that she’s going to get Tiffany sooner or later. Frank and Paulie tells her to not worry about it right now, just keep that information and file it away. Nicole asks Paulie if he is going to talk to Victor before nominating him. Paulie says that he doesn’t know. Paulie tells him that he will take all the heat from Victor so that he doesn’t have to be awkward with the rest of the house and can enjoy his last few days in the house. Paulie tells Nicole that he’s going to use the veto on Paul since they had talked about it previously.
6:50 PM BBT: Natalie tells Bronte that Paulie will either use the veto on her or Paul. Bronte questions if the plan is to really backdoor Victor. Bronte adds that Paul cornered her again, saying that Paulie’s group is coming after them and has them lined up to pick them all off week after week, but says that she doesn’t know if that is just a lie Paul has been fed and he is regurgitating it. Natalie tells her that she believes Victor is the target because every single person is after him. Bronte tells her that Victor is the target now but they’re the target next. Natalie tells her that it’s possible Paulie uses the veto on Paul to get more trust from him.
7:05 PM BBT: Paulie tells Paul that he’s going to use the veto on him and will take all the heat from Victor so that it isn’t awkward for the rest of the house. Tiffany asks Paulie if he’s going to tell Victor before the POV ceremony. Paulie says he isn’t, that he’s just going to deal with it afterwards.
7:10 PM BBT: Michelle tells Tiffany that if she wins HOH next week, she should put Bridgette up since Michelle can’t do it herself. Zakiyah tells them that a girl does need to go home next week because otherwise the guys will start to get suspicious. Tiffany tells them that she believes it should be Natalie because of the way she has been clinging to James.
7:40 PM BBT: Da’Vonne asks Tiffany if she wants Paul or Bronte gone next. Tiffany tells her that it could be either of them or Natalie. Day questions why people have been protecting Natalie. Tiffany tells her that it’s James who is protecting her and she doesn’t know why. Day tells Tiffany that she had a dream that they got Victor, Paul, then Frank out, and then all the girls came together to untie against the guys. Day adds that Frank, James, and Zakiyah are all people they can’t sit next to in the end because they’re all so loved. Tiffany asks Day when she thinks they should get Frank out. Da’Vonne tells her that it has to be soon and it has to be before jury. Tiffany and Da’Vonne agree that Paulie should be the last of the guys to go.
7:50 PM BBT: Paulie tells Frank and Corey that Natalie and Bronte could be the ones who go up next week. Paulie adds that he knows Frank has a good relationship with Bridgette, but knows that Bridgette would take the girl’s side over theirs. Frank tells him that he really doesn’t think the girls will unite against them because Day and Nicole have the two strongest female personalities and those two are on their side.
8:45 PM BBT: James asks Michelle who she wants out next week. Michelle tells him that she wants Bridgette out, but she can’t be the one who puts her up. James asks Michelle how she feels about him nominating Bridgette and Paul if he wins HOH next week. Michelle says that would be fine with her.
8:55 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Zakiyah and Nicole about Bridgette, Natalie, and Bronte wanting it to become an all girls house. Day tells her that if they did do that, their Fatal Five would have the majority over the other three girls, so that would benefit them even more. Nicole tells her that if they want to do that, they’d have to get another guy out next week without it seeming weird that only guys have been targets. Nicole adds that the only reason Bronte, Bridgette, and Natalie are wanting a all girls house is because it’s their only angle since they’re powerless. Day says that she knows, but believes they could still use that idea to their advantage. Day tells her that they can get Bronte and Paul out, then they could all team up with Bridgette and Natalie. Nicole tells them that Frank only wants people who will vote for him in jury and no girls will. Day tells her that Bridgette would, which is why they could think about getting her out.
Zakiyah tells Nicole that Frank is the leader of the guys. Day agrees, saying that he’s been the one orchestrating a bunch of the moves. Day tells Nicole that Tiffany and Paulie have a unbreakable alliance that was solidified when they told each other about their siblings, so if she were ever on the block up against Tiffany, Paulie would vote against her. Day tells the girls that she just doesn’t want to see Frank and Corey sitting in the final two while they’re in the jury house.
10:55 PM BBT: Frank tells James that they need to get Bronte out next week, then the following week they could get Tiffany nominated by the BB Roadkill and send her home. Frank tells James that Paulie and Corey are so worried about the girls teaming up while he’s getting so tired of hearing about that since they have Day and Nicole who would tell them if anything was happening. James tells him that he believes Tiffany is the weakest link in their alliance, so it would make sense why she’d be the first to go. Frank tells him that he would rather keep Natalie and Bronte in the house another week over Tiffany because those two would be easier to get out later. Frank explains that they can get Victor and Bronte out, then nominate Natalie, Bridgette, and Tiffany. Frank adds that the girls in their group would be okay with sending Tiffany home over Bronte. Frank tells James that he’d rather have Bridgette and Natalie in jury over Tiffany. James tells him that he agrees 1000%.
Nicole joins the conversation and Frank fills her in on going after Tiffany once they get Bronte out next week. Nicole tells her that she’s fine with that plan as long as Bronte is the one who goes first. Frank tells her that Zakiyah and Michelle are people he’d like to keep around longest from their group. Nicole tells him that Corey is on their side right now too, so it would be stupid to send him out. Frank tells her that they can wait until there are about 10 people left before they go after Corey and Paulie.
10:35 PM BBT: Bronte questions if Frank and James are working together. Bridgette tells her that they are and that they have to find a way to get the vets out or at least crack the people that the vets are closest to. Bridgette explains that they could get the newbies in Team Unicorn and Category Four to work together to get the vets from each team out. Bridgette tells them that they can’t let Natalie go home. Bronte tells her that Tiffany was supposed to throw the veto, but didn’t, which makes her think there is some plan that they don’t know about happening. Bridgette tells them that another reason she doesn’t want to let Tiffany go home is because she hates Frank and would be one willing to take a shot at him.
11:10 PM BBT: Bronte tells Bridgette that James will continue to throw the HOH competition as long as Frank’s group tells him to, but will also protect Natalie, but won’t do the same for her. Bridgette tells her that it makes sense for Natalie to side with James if she only wants to make it to jury, but not if she wants to win. Natalie tells Bridgette that they might have to save Victor, but says she doesn’t know why. Bridgette explains to her that they need to keep Tiffany because she’s willing to take a shot at Frank. Natalie tells them that they just need all the girls to come together. Bridgette tells her that they can’t all unite too soon or else it’d be too obvious.
Tiffany briefly joins them, telling Bronte that Paulie is going to use the veto on Paul since Paul didn’t choose Victor to play in the veto competition when he could have. Tiffany tells them that she has good news to tell them, but it’ll have to wait until later tonight. After leaving, Natalie gets up and tells Bronte and Bridgette that they have to keep all their information from themselves and not tell anyone, including Tiffany.
11:35 PM BBT: Victor begins talking to himself, saying that hopefully he’s still safe and won’t go up as the replacement nominee. Victor adds that he only trusts two, maybe three people, but that number will go up if Paulie doesn’t use the veto and keeps the nominations the same.
12:50 AM BBT: Bridgette tells Tiffany that Bronte knows that she wants to shake things up because the guys are just going to pick them off one by one otherwise. Tiffany tells her that she talked to Day and that she is someone who wants to make a bold move. Tiffany adds that there are two guys who are running the house and those two are Frank and James. Tiffany tells her that one of them needs to go home and that one is Frank. Bridgette tells her that she’s afraid of the guys using Paul once Victor goes. Tiffany tells her not to worry because they’ll have the numbers to get him out next time he goes up. Bridgette tells Tiffany that she knows Frank and Corey hang out, Frank and James, and then Day, Zakiyah, Michelle, and Nicole are also all working together.
Tiffany tells Natalie she knows she thinks that James is awesome, but says that he would never take any of the girls to the finals. Natalie tells her that she knows. Tiffany tells Natalie and Bridgette that she knows she can trust Paulie because she has walked in on conversations with Paulie talking about getting rid of Victor. Tiffany explains to Bridgette and Natalie that Michelle isn’t a girl’s girl, that she is likely there to create a fake all girls alliance and then expose it to the guys or just sabotage it from the start. Tiffany tells them that what they need to worry about right now is getting Frank out because once he’s out, they’ll be able to run the house themselves.
1:20 AM BBT: Frank tells Paulie that if Tiffany gets HOH, he’ll be one of the people she puts up. Frank tells Paulie that James is a trustworthy guy who is good at memory and physical competitions. Frank adds that he feels good about Nicole, that the two of them are both closer to her than Corey is. Frank tells Paulie that a final four with them two, Zakiyah, and Nicole isn’t a bad option. Paulie agrees, going on to say that if Michelle won BB Roadkill and they didn’t have HOH, she would nominate Bridgette.
1:35 AM BBT: Bridgette tells Bronte and Natalie that if they take out a top dog, the entire house get scrambled. Natalie tells her that Frank is that top dog she’s talking about. Bronte tells them that if Frank isn’t taken out before jury, he could earn his way back into the house.
