Today is the veto ceremony, which means the first backdoor of the summer will be happening, and to top it all off, it’ll be a blindside. There will be plenty interesting things happening that include much more than just the veto ceremony aftermath. A lot of the girls have been creating plans to turn on the guys. Now it just comes down to seeing if the guys will catch on or find out.
11:20 AM BBT: Michelle tells Nicole that Frank only wants to keep Bridgette because he’s close to her, which is why she’d nominate Bridgette next week if she were to win BB Roadkill. Michelle adds that Bridgette and Frank might be a more worrisome duo than James and Natalie. Michelle goes on to say that James said there is a shot caller in the house, but wouldn’t say who, but Michelle says she believes it is Frank. Nicole tells Michelle that the guys are only wanting to keep Bridgette and Natalie because they can control them and are extra votes, that they’d need to be careful because they could be people the guys get out so that they could keep Natalie and Bridgette.
11:35 AM BBT: James tells Paulie that he’s willing to take some of the heat from Victor so that Paulie doesn’t have to take it all alone. Paulie tells him that he sees through Victor’s lies, but would still feel bad if he thought the entire house hated him. Paulie adds that it might be better if Victor thinks the house doesn’t like him because at least that way he doesn’t harass people for votes. Paulie tells James that he knows Frank trusts Bridgette, but says he sees something different in her, that she is the type of person who could switch alliances and bring information on the previous with her.
James tells Paulie that he feels like Frank is going down a route where he’ll want to cut Tiffany. Paulie tells him that he’s feeling that way too, that he wouldn’t have it Tiffany would have just kept her cool. James and Paulie both agree that they see a lot of Tiffany’s strategy being the same that Vanessa used last year. Paulie tells James that since Vanessa’s strategy worked last year, it’s rubbing people the wrong way this year.
12:05 PM BBT: Zakiyah tells Da’Vonne that Tiffany has got to go, that Paulie is going to do everything he can to protect her, but she has to go. Da’Vonne agrees, telling her that them two and Frank could work on Paulie to get him on board. Zakiyah says that Tiffany has to go sooner rather than later. Day says that she’d have to go before jury.
12:40 PM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie that she needs to be careful with James because if the others were to ever target him, she could be coupled together with him as a duo. Natalie tells her that she knows, that she loves James and has a crush on him, but wouldn’t let that distract her from the game.
1:00 PM BBT: Frank tells Da’Vonne that the eviction order should go Victor, then Bronte, then third they should get out Tiffany. Da’Vonne agrees, then Frank goes on to say that Paulie trusts Tiffany, which he doesn’t like. Frank mentions the idea that once they get to about 11 people left, they should cut Paulie and Corey once they get the chance. Da’Vonne agrees, saying that Tiffany should go before them since she is gunning for her. Frank tells her that even if Bronte wins something next week that makes it so she can’t be evicted, they should just take out Tiffany instead.
3:05 PM BBT: Paulie tells Nicole that they’ve got a good group of guys and girls, and the two of them can just protect each other in the meantime.
3:15 PM BBT: Bronte tells Tiffany, Bridgette, and Natalie that Paulie told her that the plan is still to get Victor out, so nothing has changed. Bridgette tells her that there is no reason to switch the plan now because they’d lose the trust of a few people they’ve gained it from.
3:35 PM BBT: Michelle tells Zakiyah that Frank doesn’t want Bridgette out because of how close they are. Zakiyah agrees, saying that is why she needs to go. Michelle tells her that they could replace Bridgette in any future group with Natalie.
3:55 PM BBT: Paulie questions if Bronte told him that Paul tipped off Victor in the hopes of deflected the heat and putting it all on Paul before the nominations. Tiffany tells him that she knows that Natalie has lied to her face a few times. Paulie tells her that he doesn’t trust anyone that is still in Jozea’s former group. Tiffany tells Paulie that she’d like to win HOH next week, that her main targets would still be the other side of the house, but would make sure to nominate a guy and girl just so that they could make it even.
4:35 PM BBT: Nicole tells Michelle that if Bridgette won HOH, she wouldn’t be a threat to either of them and they’d have Frank to help make decisions for her, while if Bronte won, she’d likely put both of them up. Nicole adds that if they were to get Bridgette out, they’d probably lose Frank from being on their side. Michelle tells her that she understands, that she just wants to get Bridgette out sooner or later. Michelle mentions the all girls alliance, to which Nicole tells her that one of the reasons Nicole, Bronte, and Bridgette even want to make the all girls alliance is because they put themselves in a bad spot and this is their chance to get out from under it.
4:40 PM BBT: Nataile tells Bronte that James and Corey are tight, then James and Frank are tight, then Frank is close with Paul, which makes Frank the head of the snake. Bronte tells her that it would have been so easy to get Jozea out at any point while it’s going to be near impossible to get Paulie out, so she says it just doesn’t make any sense to her, regardless of which side of the house you’re on.
4:55 PM BBT: Frank tells Nicole that once they get Victor out, the house will finally settle down and they’ll be able to target Bronte or Tiffany. Nicole tells him that she is down with that. Frank tells her that they need someone like Michelle because she’d take the both of them to the final three over any fourth person they chose to take with them. Nicole asks Frank if he’d take her to the final two, to which he tells her that he would, that they’ve already made a deal about that. Frank tells her that they’d ideally take Zakiyah with them to the final three because both of them would be able to beat her in any competition.
Zakiyah joins them, and Frank asks her what she thinks about getting Tiffany out sooner rather than later. She says she’s fine with it, but questions how Paulie would feel about it. Frank tells her that he doesn’t care how Paulie feels about it. Nicole tells Frank that she won’t be able to put up Tiffany since they’re on the same team. Frank tells her that is why she’ll need to throw the HOH competition for a few weeks and that ideally they’d win the Roadkill and nominate Tiffany anonymously.
5:45 PM BBT: Nicole tells Da’Vonne that she’s fine if they have to take Tiffany out next week. Day tells her that they’d need to take Tiffany out after Bronte because Bronte is gunning for her now. Da’Vonne tells Nicole that she believes Zakiyah would be a good #3 for them, along with suggesting Michelle. Nicole tells her that Zakiyah would be the better option.
6:35 PM BBT: Corey tells Nicole that Frank doesn’t like Tiffany one bit, that he doesn’t like he either. Nicole tells him that he’s playing emotionally because Tiffany isn’t even on his team and can’t go after him. Corey tells her that he doesn’t care, that Tiffany is weighing them down during competitions and that she has the sister twist going for her too, which Tiffany had just told him about. Corey tells Nicole that he believes they’re going to want to keep Natalie around for a while and get rid of Bridgette and Bronte in the meantime. Corey goes on to say that they want Michelle, Bronte, and Bridgette to just implode on their own so that they don’t have to be the ones to get them out. Nicole tells Corey that Frank is suspicious, but Corey tells her that he isn’t and that she is just paranoid for no reason.
Frank joins them, telling them that he believes Tiffany should be their plan for week after the next, but could be the backup plan for next week if Bronte manages to save herself. Corey and Nicole both agree, and say that their best chances would be to use the Roadkill to nominate Tiffany. Frank tells them that he’d love for Michelle to win HOH since she would go after Bronte, but they should be go as long as they don’t like Tiffany win HOH since they’re on her team. Frank explains that in three weeks from now and Tiffany managed to win HOH, he could be in danger.
8:20 PM BBT: Paulie tells Frank that Bridgette, Natalie, and Bronte are all staying close, despite being separated from Victor, Paul, and Jozea. Frank tells him that they’re just rats on a sinking ship. Paulie, Frank, and Corey all agree that they really like Michelle. James tells them that if Michelle focuses on somebody, she’ll turn on them like a pitbull. Corey tells them that some of the girls in the house are so clueless. Frank mentions that it’s been like this every season, but girls find one little thing they don’t like about each other and then hate that person over it. James tells them that this is why all girls alliances have never worked.
8:40 PM BBT: Paulie tells Frank that Tiffany is getting really comfortable around him, which is good. Paulie goes on to say that if Tiffany wins HOH, he’s going to be fine. Frank tells him that he doesn’t know if Tiffany would go against him yet, but she will eventually. Paulie tells him not to worry because she wouldn’t do something that bold yet.
8:45 PM BBT: Michelle asks Day and Zakiyah if they have talked to any of the guys recently. Day says no and that it makes her suspicious since she was talking to the guys so much the previous two weeks. Day tells them that they’ll know something is up if they send Bronte home next week, then Frank tries to say that Paul can’t be the option for the following week. Day goes on to say that Bronte has to be one to go because she is gunning for Nicole and that she believes Tiffany is gunning for her, but says that Tiffany doesn’t scare her, though if any of them ever wanted to turn on Tiffany, she’ll be down for it. Day tells Michelle and Zakiyah that them two and Nicole are the only ones she trusts right now and will tell everything to. Day continues, saying that Bridgette is another one of the girls that they’ll have to get out because she could possibly pick Frank over them. Michelle tells her that she believes that Frank could end up getting his crap handed to him if he continues to play like he is now. Day tells Michelle and Zakiyah that they’ll be able to use Frank and Tiffany against each other because they’ll take each other out and they won’t have to be the ones getting any blood on their hands.
Day tells Michelle and Zakiyah that she would want Frank gone pre-jury. Michelle tells her that she couldn’t be the one to do that to him since she doesn’t want to ruin Eight Pack. Day asks her when she thinks Frank should go home than. Michelle explains that he should just be the first to go once they get down to their eight. Day tells her that they’ll just wait until the double eviction, and that James will have to go right behind him, to which Michelle agrees. Da’Vonne explains to them that the reason she wants Frank out prejury is because she believes there is going to be a buyback and that Frank would likely win it over all the over evitctees, and once he came back into the house, they wouldn’t be the ones he would seek revenge on. Day tells them that she believes Frank, James, Corey, and Paulie will all team up as the dude alliance. Da’Vonne points out that in their Eight Pack alliance, the girls outnumber the guys. Zakiyah tells her that is the guys worst fear.
Da’Vonne tells Zakiyah and Michelle that Tiffany said Bronte, Bridgette, and Natalie approached her about all the girls working together, but Day says that she doesn’t believe it that those girls would want to be an alliance with them. Michelle tells them that even without an all girls alliance, Natalie should be the last one to go from that group since she is so bad at competitions. Michelle adds that Tiffany is really good at connecting with those three girls. Day agrees, saying that they’ll need to figure that out. Day tells them that she believes Tiffany’s one true alliance is to Paulie because of the sibling twist.
9:10 PM BBT: Nicole joins Da’Vonne, Michelle, and Zakiyah in the have-not room. Nicole tells them that Frank said that they’re going to give Paul a break from being on the block after Bronte goes home. Da’Vonne tells her that means the guys are working together and that they need to get the girls together to start having each other’s back, but not create an alliance. Day tells them that Corey would be the easiest to get out from Frank’s group. Nicole agrees, saying that Frank is also after Corey. Michelle asks her about Corey working with Frank in a guy’s alliance, but Nicole tells her that there is one, just not one that includes Corey. Da’Vonne tells the girls that she doesn’t want to get so wrapped up on staying loyal to the Eight Pack that they pass up on an opportunity to get Frank or James out. Day tells them that Tiffany also makes her nervous, but she did vote how they wanted her to last week. Nicole tells her that Tiffany will be good as long as they keep her feeling safe and secure.
Da’Vonne tells the girls that Tiffany would have to be put up using the Roadkill and that one of them are going to have to be the one to do it. Nicole questions why she thinks that Tiffany is gunning for her when Tiffany is apart of their Fatal Five. Da’Vonne explains that the DR accidentally told her information about Tiffany working with Paulie.
9:25 PM BBT: Frank tells Corey that if Bronte saves herself next week, the backup target will be Tiffany. Frank adds that it’s because if Tiffany were to win HOH, he’d be the one she put up. Corey tells him that he doesn’t think would Tiffany would turn on him so early. Frank tells him that they both just need to stay off the block because both of them will go home cause people wouldn’t want to pass up on the opportunity to finally get them out. Nicole tells her that they still need to keep Tiffany around because she’s willing to make a move against Frank now.
9:45 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells them that sometimes she wish they only made their Fatal Five alliance and not joined the Eight Pack. Tiffany agrees, saying that though Paulie isn’t in that alliance, she doesn’t want to get rid of him for a while. Tiffany tells the girls that it’s scary how well Frank has been able to control everyone. Da’Vonne asks Tiffany that if she were to have it her way, would she want Frank our prejury or not. Tiffany tells her that it would have to be before jury so that she doesn’t turn the jury against her and that it would have to be a backdoor. Tiffany goes on to tell them that Bridgette, Natalie, and Bronte are also all on board to get against Frank. Tiffany tells Da’Vonne and Zakiyah that she is worried about Michelle because of how much she is in with all the guys. Tiffany tells Day that she would want to backdoor one of the two big guys from Eight Pack if she were to win HOH before jury. Tiffany adds that she doesn’t want to really do any of this until after she is off the block because it’s not worth the risk.
Tiffany tells Da’Vonne about Bridgette, Bronte, and Natalie wanting a girl to win really bad and because of that, those three would never put any other girls on the block if they were to win it. Day says that is good, but changes the subject back to a Tiffany HOH and tells her that she would have a reason to put up Frank, and that Corey or James should be the second nominee. Tiffany tells her that the second nominee would have to be Paul. Tiffany adds that if Frank manages to save himself from being backdoored, they can just get out James. Day tells her that they’d need to use girls as pawns so that the other guys don’t think all the girls are finally joining forces.
10:00 PM BBT: Bronte tells Bridgette and Natalie that she wants Paul out because she can’t stand him. Bridgette tells her that she thinks they could use him. Bronte tells her that they couldn’t really because of how much of a loose cannon he is. Natalie tells them that she has to start working her magic on James and start game talking with him in hopes of getting some information.
10:05 PM BBT: Victor tells Paul that there are 5 people saying they’re willing to vote against Tiffany, so if he does stay, it’ll be clutch. Paul tells him that he believes Paulie is going to use the veto to take Bronte off so that one of them has to go home.
10:45 PM BBT: Da’Vonne says that she mentioned putting up Paulie as a replacement nominee next week, but Frank said that they should save him for later in the game. Da’Vonne asks Nicole if Tiffany and Frank’s falling out could actually be because those two are working together. Nicole tells her that she doesn’t think so. Michelle says that she was thinking that Frank and Tiffany could have been working together this whole time too.
11:05 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Michelle and Nicole that she got in trouble for saying the accidentally got information about Tiffany from the DR, that the DR no way impacted anything or hinted to her anything about Tiffany. Da’Vonne also lets Zakiyah know that in now way did the DR influence her game.
11:20 PM BBT: Bronte questions Natalie if they should try to get in the alliance with Frank, Corey, and James, or should they stay on the outskirts while trying to take them down. Natalie didn’t get the chance to answer, as their conversation was interrupted and never resumed.
11:40 PM BBT: Natalie asks James if she wants her or Bronte to have HOH. James tells her that he doesn’t care, that all he cares about is that they keep the heat off of them by not going against the house because of how strong the house is right now.
11:45 PM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Michelle that Natalie and Bronte are outside working on James right now. Michelle tells her that she’s sick of it. Day tells her that she’s starting to wonder if Tiffany is really working with the guys since she tried to win the veto, which would have prevented Victor from being backdoored. Day goes on to say that it’s also weird that people kept talking about there being a girl in the house who was pretending to be a girl’s girl while actually working with the guys. Day tells her that the guy pretending to be with the girls while actually working with the guys is Tiffany. Michelle asks her if she still feels like it’s going to be the Eight Pack or if they’ll disperse. Day tells her that she thinks it’ll stay the 8, but that Tiffany will probably get pushed out for Paulie, which she is okay with as long as he goes home the next week. Michelle questions why the guys would want to work with Tiffany. Da’Vonne tells her that it’s because nobody would expect it and that they won’t know for sure until the week after Bronte is out because if they suddenly don’t want to target Tiffany anymore, they’ll know something is up.
2:00 AM BBT: Bronte tells Natalie that she saw Day and Michelle clearly whispering over the kitchen sink this evening and heard them keep saying “she” over and over. Bronte tells her that she believes Nicole, Day, Michelle, and Zakiyah are all working together. Natalie tells Bronte that she believes there is starting to be dissension in Frank’s group because Michelle was crying earlier about something Frank did.
Bronte tells Natalie that for the meantime, they need to lay as low as possibly until jury, but once they get to jury and she wins HOH, she says that she plans to take out someone big like Paulie. Natalie tells her that right now their game has to be to go with the house and ride that wave.
2:50 AM BBT: Da’Vonne tells Zakiyah that Nicole wants Bronte out of the house, but the rest of the house wants Tiffany out. Day goes on to tell Zakiyah that if they were to set up a Tiffany backdoor and she didn’t end up going home, that would prove her theory that she is working with the guys because the guys would have to show their cards in order to protect her. Day tells her that if she wins HOH, her three nominees could be Bronte, Bridgette, and Frank, with Tiffany waiting to be the backup nominee once Frank likely takes himself off after winning veto.
Zakiyah tells Day that as soon as Frank catches onto them that they’re onto his game, it’s going to be all over for them because Frank would come after them and successfully get them out. Day tells her that is why she is playing dumb about everything. Zakiyah tells her that she believes Frank told Paulie something that pushed him further away from her because he isn’t acting the same. Day tells Zakiyah that their four, them two, Michelle, and Nciole are who she is the most loyal to. Zakiyah agrees, saying that she doesn’t even consider it the Fatal Five anymore, now it’s just the Fatal Four.
3:20 AM BBT: Da’Vonne talks into the camera and tells us that eventually the house is going to start realizing that they have been getting nothing but newbies out left and right. Day mentions that she needs to talk with Frank again and make sure that he’s still on board with the vets’ plan.
