It was the day of the veto competition, which of course brings along the usual scrambling and game talk along with it. A backdoor plan was put in place, along with a few people who plan on doing their best to ruin those plans. We’re happy to be back and recap it all for you!
9:20 AM BBT: James began to question why Paulie didn’t choose him to play in veto. Natalie told James that it was probably because of her. James told Natalie that if she does end up winning the veto, she needs to make a deal with Paulie and Paul regarding next week. Natalie asked if there is a chance that she could go home over Bridgette, to which James told her that she couldn’t.
9:20 AM BBT: Paul told Paulie that they know he wants Bridgette out this week, but said that he’ll go along with putting up Da’Vonne as the replacement nomination.
9:55 AM BBT: Paulie told Corey and Nicole that Paul said he wants Bridgette gone, but said that he trusts Paulie if he thinks it’s best for Da’Vonne to go home. Nicole told Paulie that Michelle and Zakiyah deny that Da’Vonne has ever been brought up to them. Paulie told Corey and Nicole that if he wins HOH next week, he might put up Michelle and Zakiyah. Paulie added that he actually has a reason to nominate Zakiyah since it messes with the way he plays the game. Paulie then explained his argument with Zakiyah last night, along with the comments she made that he believes were only to push his buttons. Paulie said that he’s done with Zakiyah because she tried to cry to make him feel bad as if he owed her anything.
Nicole warned Paulie that he could make Zakiyah so mad that she could come after him. Paulie told her that he’s willing to put aside certain targets in order to handle Zakiyah and send her home before she could make a move against him. Nicole told Paulie that Zakiyah is saying she doesn’t want to stray away from targeting Bridgette. Paulie told her that it’s because she’s trying to protect Da’Vonne.
1:30 PM BBT: Paulie won the POV. Full details here.
1:40 PM BBT: James told Natalie that Da’Vonne is going to be going home if she goes on the block like they have planned. Natalie told James that Victor needs to go soon, that he’s going to start winning everything since he just let Paulie win today’s veto. James told her that if Paulie is working with Bridgette, them two, Zakiyah, and Da’Vonne are on the outs. Natalie questioned if Paul would backstab Da’Vonne, to which James said that he doesn’t know. James told Natalie that he’s going to find some stuff out and then attempt to restructure the alliances in the house. James told her that even if they were to take a shot at Paulie, it’s going to have to be a backdoor and put him up against someone who everyone loves.
2:25 PM BBT: James told Michelle that he’s loyal as hell, he just needs to know who to be loyal to. Michelle told him that she’s a good person and that they should try their hardest to not let what they think is going to happen actually happen.
2:30 PM BBT: Da’Vonne asked Bridgette what her plan b was. Bridgette told her that she doesn’t know right now, that she’s trying to figure it out. Da’Vonne told her that she should try to get someone who is a bigger target than her put up.
2:35 PM BBT: Bridgette asked Natalie not to vote her out this week. Bridgette then told Natalie about the guys being upset over how much she begged not to be on the block. Bridgette told her that she overheard the guys talking about how she was using the fact that she was a have-not as a reason not to be a put up. Bridgette added that Natalie is safe this week, so she shouldn’t even sweat it.
2:40 PM BBT: Paulie told James that this week is pretty much a lock now and asked who they should take out next during the double eviction. James told him that he doesn’t know, that whatever they want should work. Paulie mentioned that the girls would appreciate them taking out Bridgette next week. James asked who’s going this week, and Paulie told him that it’s Da’Vonne.
2:55 PM BBT: Paul mentioned how funny it would be if they just sent Natalie home this week. Paulie told him that once he comes down, they have the four guys to vote out whichever person they choose.
3:55 PM BBT: Zakiyah told Michelle that they need to get out Natalie and Victor soon. Zakiyah added that the guys are wanting Da’Vonne out, which Zakiyah said she’s fine with, but said that Da’Vonne isn’t after the two of them and isn’t bad for their game. Michelle told her that she’s hoping that Bridgette goes this week, to which Zakiyah agreed. Zakiyah told Michelle about her fight with Paulie last night and what it was about. Michelle questioned how far she is wanting to take Paul now that Paulie has gotten so close to him. Zakiyah said not far and that if Paulie does take Paul to the end, he’s going to lose. Michelle asked her how she felt about Nicole. Zakiyah said she likes and trusts Nicole.
4:25 PM BBT: Bridgette told Victor that Da’Vonne told her to start name dropping Nicole as the replacement nominee since she’s’ been playing alot of people. Bridgette added that she really wants Da’Vonne gone, to which Victor agreed. Victor told her that neither her or Paulie would have put her up if they had won HOH. Bridgette told Victor that she’s ready to work with them and take a big swing at someone if she gets HOH.
4:35 PM BBT: Victor began talking to the viewers about the dynamics of the house from his perspective. Victor said that the house is starting to turn against Natalie since they’re starting to see that she’s annoying. Victor explained that he agrees with getting her out since she slandered his name in his goodbye message by insinutating that he doesn’t respect women. Victor said that Paulie is pissed at Zakiyah often now because she’s always nagging him. He said that Nicole is a shady character and likely who he’d put up if he were to win HOH. He said that his boys are Paulie and Paul, which makes them one the strongest trios in the house.
5:40 PM BBT: Paulie told Corey and Victor that it would be crazy if they made it an all guys final five even though they were terrible outnumbered there for a few weeks.
8:10 PM BBT: Michelle questioned if Bridgette threw today’s veto compeititon. Nicole told her that she doesn’t think so because she knew that her life was on the line. Michelle told Nicole and Zakiyah that Bridgette isn’t as bad now that Frank is gone. Zakiyah agreed, but said that it’s a little too late for that to change now.
8:30 PM BBT: Michelle told Zakiyah that she wants either Victor or Natalie to go home during the double. Zakiyah told her that she wants Victor to go home first because he’s a big threat and Zakiyah said that she didn’t know why they’re carrying him. Michelle and Zakiyah agreed that they don’t want someone who already has money to make it to final two and that they will vote for the girl regardless if she’s up against a guy in the final two. Zakiyah told Michelle that she’s really protective of her and said that she feels like Paulie is genuine when he says he cares about protecting them. Michelle agreed, saying that she feels the same way about Paulie that he does them. Michelle and Zakiyah agreed that getting Da’Vonne out isn’t good for their game or even Paul’s game. Zakiyah added that she thinks Paul wants to be good with Da’Vonne, but Paulie is trying to brainwash him into being against her.
8:50 PM BBT: Corey told Paulie that he hopes Paul will actually put up Da’Vonne. Paulie reassured him that Paul will do it. Corey added that Paul just needs to understand that Bridgette isn’t coming after him. Paulie told Corey that if they get Da’Vonne out this week, another girl out the following week, they’d be able to control votes until the final five. Paulie told Corey that the person he’d want out first when they turn on each other is Michelle since she can actually do damage while Zakiyah couldn’t.
9:05 PM BBT: Paulie told Zakiyah that he’s going to use the veto on himself on Monday, then Paul is going to put up Da’Vonne. Paulie asked who Zakiyah thought should be the target next week, and Zakiyah told him that she thinks Victor needs to go. Zakiyah told Paulie that it is sounding like Bridgette is going to be the one who gets evicted. Paulie told her that all he knows is that he’ll be voting Da’Vonne out and that if it does come to a tie, Paul will probably get Bridgette out. Paulie told Zakiyah that they should get rid of Bridgette before they get Natalie out since Bridgette can actually win something. Zakiyah told him that she’d put up Victor and Natalie with the intention of sending Victor home.
Zakiyah told Paulie that she wants Bridgette gone. Paulie told her that he could keep Bridgette from coming after her and said that if Bridgette did win HOH, she’d go after Michelle, not her. Zakiyah told him that she feels like Paul would win the game if he is taken to the end because he went from the Jozea trio to being a well liked member of their alliance. Paulie told her that the jury voting is for who played the best game, not a popularity contest.
10:00 PM BBT: James told Natalie that he’s going to try to flip the vote against Bridgette and to try to keep Da’Vonne.
12:05 AM BBT: Paul told Zakiyah that he’ll put up Da’Vonne so that he can say that he did what he said he’d do, but still plans to get Bridgette out. Paul added that if the vote does end up being against Da’Vonne, it wouldn’t be his fault. Zakiyah told him that she wants Bridgette got, not Da’Vonne.
12:20 AM BBT: Paulie told Victor that they could use Bridgette to take shots at the women that they can’t, which would help them get to the final five with all guys.
