It’s going to be a pretty eventful day in the Big Brother house, as the veto meeting was today, which always results in plenty of game talk. Michelle is starting to try to paint a target on Paulie’s back, which will make it interesting to see how Paulie reacts and if Paul will get on board with getting her out.
9:45 AM BBT: Michelle got up and early to get ready for the veto meeting, talking to the live feeders while she got ready. Michelle said that she’s 95% sure that Paulie isn’t going to use the veto, even though last week he said she was in an alliance with him, Zakiyah, Corey, and Nicole. Michelle added that the last time she checked, when you’re alliance member is on the block, you’re supposed to save them. Michelle said that if she has Natalie and James’ vote, she only needs one more, so it could either be Bridgette or Paul.
10:10 AM BBT: Michelle told Zakiyah that if Paulie doesn’t use the veto on her, it’ll be the ultimate betrayal and will show that he’s afraid of Victor. Zakiyah left the room, leaving Michelle and Natalie alone. Natalie asked Michelle who she trusts. Michelle told her that she trusts nobody at this point, but did say that she was telling James last night how she trusts Natalie. Michelle told Natalie that she doesn’t trust Paulie, Corey, and Nicole anymore. Natalie asked why, to which Michelle told her that those three screwed her over.
11:35 AM BBT: Paulie decides to NOT use the POV. Full details here.
11:35 AM BBT: Michelle asked Zakiyah if her veto speech was sassy, saying that she just wanted to prove a point that people should be worried about Paulie since he’s been winning so many competitions. Michelle told Zakiyah that she thought them two, Paulie, Nicole, and Corey were in an alliance together, but it looks like they weren’t. Michelle added that if she has the round trip ticket, she’s going to shake things up.
11:45 AM BBT: Michelle told Paul that if she does go, she just wants to make sure that everyoe knows about Paulie’s competition wins. Michelle told Paul that if she wins the double eviction HOH, she’s not going to put him up, but said that if he wins it, he can use her as the pawn. Michelle said that if it’s what it takes for her to stay, she’s willing to be the pawn for the rest of the summer. Michelle told Paul that she wouldn’t put up Victor or Bridgette if she won the double eviction HOH, saying that it would be a big move and that’s all she’s willing to say. Paul told her that he’s picking up what she is putting down and said that she should pitch that to Victor and Bridgette. Michelle told him that she already has two votes and only needs his or Bridgette’s vote to stay. Michelle explained that she thinks she could get the point across to Paul since Paulie has won 50% of the HOHs that he’s played in.
12:00 PM BBT: Paulie told Paul that Zakiyah told him beforehand that Michelle planned to call him out for his competition wins. Paul told Paulie that Michelle told him that she’s not going to go after Paul or Bridgette. Paulie told him that only leaves him and Victor. Paul told Paulie that Michelle said it would be a big move that everyone would want, but said that everyone doesn’t want Paulie out. Paulie told Paul that Zakiyah told him that Michelle’s campaigning was likely to be about putting a target on his back for winning things.
Paul told Paulie that his issue with keeping Zakiyah in the house is that Bridgette would go next, leaving him and Victor in the pool of noncouples, making them the easiest targets in the house. Paulie told him that they could get Zakiyah or Nicole out in the double eviction to balance that. Paulie explained that if Nicole was sitting next to Natalie, Nicole would go. Paulie told Paul that he knows for a fact that Zakiyah would put up whomever he told her to. Paulie elaborated, saying that Zakiyah would put up Nicole and James if he wanted her to. Paul told Paulie that James and Natalie are starting to rub him the wrong way, to which Paulie told him that they need to break up Corey and Nicole since they do talk game and Corey hasn’t been reporting it back to them.
Paul told Paulie that if they got rid of James during the double eviction, it would even them back out with the girls. Paulie told him that they should get out another girl before taking the shot at James. Paul asked if they should just send Nicole out during the double. Paulie told him that it’s possible, that he was actually thinking of putting Nicole up next to Bridgette. Paul told him that they need to get rid of stronger girls now, so Paulie told him that if they can’t get Bridgette out during the double, Nicole would suffice. Paulie told Paul that once they get Bridgette and Nicole out, they should put up James and Natalie.
Paulie told Paul that the only girl he’d feel comfortable taking to the final four with them is Natalie, but said that she couldn’t go any further because if any of them took a girl to the final two, regardless of how great of a game they played, the girl would win by default. Paul told him that means it’s in their best bet to keep Victor until the final five.
12:30 PM BBT: Zakiyah told Paulie and Paul that Michelle told her that she just wanted everyone to know about how many competitions Paulie had won. Paul told Zakiyah about Michelle saying she’d make a big move during the double, to which Zakiyah told him that she thinks Michelle was referring to turning on them. Paulie told them that Michelle doesn’t care, will do whatever is best for her game no matter who it means they throw under the bus.
2:05 PM BBT: Nicole told Zakiyah that she has been working to keep her in the house, but says that she just doesn’t want to make it obvious to Michelle. Zakiyah said that she wanted to know why Victor is so intimidated by her. Nicole told her that it’s her facial expressions. Zakiyah said that she’d put up Victor and Bridgette next to each other. Nicole said she’d do the same.
2:15 PM BBT: Bridgette asked Corey where Nicole’s head was at. Corey told her that Nicole would prefer to go after bigger targets, not her. Corey asked her if she wanted to win HOH, to which Bridgette answered that she just wanted to stay in until certain people fell out. Corey told Bridgette that if he wins HOH, he has her back. Bridgette said she has his.
2:30 PM BBT: Michelle told Natalie that she only needs one more person to stay if she has her and James’ vote. Michelle added that she talked with Corey earlier and he had said that Zakiyah is the target. Michelle told Natalie that the people she sees not voting for her are Paulie and Nicole. Michelle went on to say that Nicole has lied to her face about numerous things. Michelle told her that Tiffany, Frank, and Da’Vonne all told her not to trust Nicole. Michelle told Natalie that it all comes down to Paulie’s decision since he’s the one running the house. Michelle told Natalie that she was screwed over and now it’s time to find new people that she can trust.
3:10 PM BBT: Natalie told James that he should know that she has his back no matter what. and said that he can trust her a million percent.
3:35 PM BBT: Victor asked Corey if they’re still on the same page about Zakiyah. Corey told him that he’s down to do whatever, but said he doesn’t know what Paulie wants. Corey added that Paulie just isn’t going to want to get Zakiyah out right now. Victor told Corey that he talked to Paulie, who said that he is cool with either happening. Nicole joined them. Corey asked her if she also got the vibe that Paulie wanted to keep Zakiyah, to which Nicole confirmed. Nicole told Victor that she’s not afraid of Zakiyah at all, saying that she doesn’t think she could win, even by a fluke. Corey and Nicole both explained to Victor that Paulie could control Zakiyah if she won HOH. Paulie joined them, telling Victor that it’s obvious he wants Michelle gone after she took a shot at him. Victor told Paulie that if that is what he wants, he’s cool with it.
4:40 PM BBT: Paulie told Bridgette that Paul and Victor are wanting to take a shot at James, which is why they’re wanting Michelle to stay so bad. Paulie explained to Bridgette that Michelle would likely nominate the two of them.
4:40 PM BBT: Corey told James and Nicole that if he wins HOH, he’s going to put Paul and Victor up with the intention of sending Victor home. Corey told James that Paul is one that needs Bridgette gone the most, which is something Corey said that Bridgette should know. Corey told James that Paul and Victor have been throwing their name out while trying to pull Bridgette into his fold.
4:55 PM BBT: Victor told Paul that the decision to keep Zakiyah is better for everyone except them. Paul told him that it’ll be funny if Michelle ends up having the round trip, to which Victor told him that he hopes she does. Victor told him that Paulie is loyal to The Executives, but said that you never know what could happen if Zakiyah were to win HOH. Victor went on to say that he’s not happy about Zakiyah staying, but said that they have to swallow their pride. Victor told Paul that they’ll be in a group of all pairs. Victor listed off Corey having Nicole, James having Natalie, and Zakiyah having Paulie. Paul told him that the two of them will be a pair.
5:10 PM BBT: Victor told himself that it would be dope if him and Paul could stick it out to the end. Victor added that if him, Paul, and Paulie could stick it out, he’d be even happier, but said that he doesn’t know if he would get screwed before then.
5:10 PM BBT: Paulie told Paul that everybody wants Michelle out after the comments she made during and after the veto meeting. Paulie added that he’s thinking about nominating Nicole and Zakiyah if he wins HOH, with Bridgette waiting as the backup nominee. Paul told him that Victor is worried about the pairs staying in tact.
6:35 PM BBT: Paulie told Zakiyah that Michelle is motived by jealousy and attention. Zakiyah told him that Michelle said today that the only thing she did wrong was not be in a showmance, which Zakiyah says is Michelle basically throwing her under the bus now. Paulie told her that Michelle’s veto speech sealed her fate today. Zakiyah asked Paulie if Victor had said anything to him. Paulie said that Victor just wants to break the couples up.
6:35 PM BBT: Paul told Zakiyah that he believes she’ll be fine this week, especially after Michelle’s veto speech. Zakiyah told Paul that she’s going to be gunning for the next HOH so that she can get Victor out.
7:05 PM BBT: Natalie told Bridgette that she isn’t leaving the house without winning HOH since she’s not a scared little bitch. Natalie explained that nobody wants to win anything because they feel comfortable and don’t want the blood on their hands, but Natalie said that she’s not scared of that. Natalie told her that everyone wanted James to put her up, but he didn’t want to do it. Bridgette told her that James still did it, so it makes it hard for her. Bridgette told her that she isn’t going to go after James, though.
Bridgette told Natalie that Victor, Paul, Corey, and Zakiyah all trust Paulie. Bridgette added that she told Corey that she trusts him and Paulie the most. Natalie told her that is good and it’s what she has to keep doing so that they believe it. Natalie told Bridgette that she feels like there is already a queue of people that Paulie’s group has lined up to evict, but said that she doesn’t know where they stand in that queue. Bridgette told Natalie that Paulie doesn’t want to win the next HOH because he doesn’t want to have to put Zakiyah up. Natalie told her that Paulie said Natalie is a threat, but Bridgette is not. Bridgette told Natalie that she knows for a fact that Paulie can’t go anytime soon because he has too many people on his side. Natalie told her that they have to make Paulie’s group believe what they want to believe.
7:50 PM BBT: Paulie told Corey that Bridgette told Paul that she wants to win HOH, but said that she doesn’t know who she’d put up. Corey told him that Bridgette told him that she trusts the two of them and Natalie the most. James joined them. Paulie told Corey and James that Victor is worried about all the couples in the house, even more so now that they’re wanting to keep Zakiyah, making him question where he and Paul stand in the house.
Corey told James and Paulie that Paul has been going around and telling people that he wants Michelle out. Corey added that if he wins HOH next week, he’s going to put up Paul alongside Victor if he wins HOH. Paulie said that they have to remember that Paul is telling them things, but Corey told him that Paul isn’t, that Paul has been lying about a lot of things and throwing people’s names out. Paulie told them that Paul is a loyal dog with Victor, to which both Corey and James could agree to. Paulie added that once they get Michelle out this week along with another girl, it might be time for them to go after Victor. Paulie did say that the one good thing about Victor is that he’s dead set on The Executives making final five and going down in BB history, so they should probably take care of Bridgette before him.
8:05 PM BBT: Michelle told Zakiyah that she can’t wait to call out Paulie.
8:10 PM BBT: Nicole told Corey that Zakiyah thinks Victor is the only one who wanted her out, but Paul was too, so Nicole said that she wants to tell her or have Paulie tell her so that way she’ll go after him if she were to win HOH. James joined them, telling them that they should get Paul out. James told them that he feels like Paul and Victor are going to team up. Corey told him that they already have. Nicole told Corey and James that she wants Paul to go first and said that the best time to take him out is during the double eviction, otherwise he’d be banging pots and pans all week.
8:45 PM BBT: Nicole told Zakiyah that Paul wanted her out this week too, but she had to fight along with James, Corey, and Paulie to get him to change his mind. Nicole added that Paul isn’t coming after Zakiyah this week now, but if he did have his choice this week, she’d be going home. Nicole explained that Paul wants the couples broken up, so he was likely to come after Zakiyah, then her.
9:20 PM BBT: James told Zakiyah that she only needs three votes to stay and said that he plans on canceling out the vote of anyone who is thinking about voting against her.
9:50 PM BBT: Nicole told Corey that Zakiyah said Michelle is planning on blowing up Paulie’s game before she leaves. Corey told her that he doesn’t think that Michelle has anything that she could use against him.
10:30 PM BBT: Nicole told Paulie that she told Zakiyah that Paul wanted her out too. Paulie told her that now that she knows that, Zakiyah will want to put up Paul and Victor if she wins HOH. Paulie told Nicole that it’s an asshole move for Michelle to call him out in her speech like that. Nicole explained to him that Michelle wants people to know that she’ll come after him if they keep her in the house. Nicole told Paulie that she trusts him, James, and Corey to not put her up. Paulie said he trusts the same, but said that he doesn’t trust Zakiyah to not put him up. James joined them. Paulie told James and Nicole that Michelle was saying that she 100% has two votes. James told them that Michelle is likely talking about him and Natalie since he couldn’t just tell Michelle no once she asked them.
11:20 PM BBT: Victor told Paulie that he thinks Nicole would put up Zakiyah and Bridgette. Paulie told him that they’d have to get Corey to talk to her first. Paulie told Victor that if Michelle has the round trip ticket, they have to send her right back out. Victor agreed.
1:35 AM BBT: Paulie went on a rant about Michelle that last about an hour. He told Zakiyah that he wanted to call Michelle out on it tomorrow, saying things like the he’s been the one who has kept her safe and this is how she’s repairing him. Zakiyah asked if he was mad, to which Paulie answered that he was just disappointed that both Da’Vonne, now Michelle turned their back on the alliance. Paulie told Zakiyah that every time she’s put up, he’s going to keep rallying the votes to keep her. Zakiyah said that she doesn’t want to keep being Paul and Victor’s pawn, so Paulie told her that she’s going to have to win HOH and put them up if that is the case.
