It’s going to be one of the busiest days of the year as not only is a blindside planned for tonight, but we’re also going to have a double eviction where anyone could be taken out, including Paulie who has pissed off the majority of the house, minus Corey and Nicole. It was hectic last night, but it’s possible that today will be even more so!
1:05 PM BBT: Paulie asked Zakiyah about why she didn’t have a good feeling about tonight’s eviction. Zakiyah explained that people are mad at her, such as Natalie. Paulie told her that Natalie doesn’t matter because she’s just mad she was put on the spot last night. Paulie told her that Bridgette is only mad at her because Bridgette is a feminist that said she only supports Natalie’s argument cause she’s a girl. Paulie said that is like him supporting a white person because they’re white, but he’d be called a racist for that, so he questions how what Bridgette is doing is OK.
1:30 PM BBT: Zakiyah told Nicole that she tried to warn Paulie because she feels like she’s leaving. Zakiyah added that she just doesn’t feel to confident going into tonight’s eviction. Nicole told her that it comes down to which votes James nullifies. Nicole explained that as long as James doesn’t cancel out Corey, Paulie, or her vote, she’ll be fine. Zakiyah told Nicole that Natalie was very upset, so she feels like he might try to take out someone else’s lady. Nicole told her that she doesn’t think he’d do that. Zakiyah told her that she thinks that they might want to keep Michelle cause she might blow up even more. Nicole told her that it’d be because she’d go after Paulie.
Zakiyah told Nicole that Natalie said her and Corey have been talking bad about her. Nicole said that she was going to say something to Natalie about it, but Zakiyah asked her to wait until a different day. Nicole told her that she just wants to clear this up before Natalie is given the chance to win HOH. Paulie rejoined them, saying that for Natalie to take it upon herself to bring things to light about things that him and Zakiyah have already spoken about is what gets him. Paulie told the girls that Natalie is as fake as everything on her body.
2:30 PM BBT: Nicole told Corey that Natalie told Zakiyah that she has been saying bad stuff about her, but Nicole said that she doesn’t know what she has said in front of Natalie. Nicole told him that she’s not going to bring it up to Natalie until tomorrow.
2:35 PM BBT: Nicole asked Victor if he was voting Michelle out, but Victor told her that he can’t vote. Nicole asked if Michelle is going home, to which Victor said that he doesn’t know after everything that happened last night. Victor added that he’s under the assumption that Michelle is going home, though.
2:40 PM BBT: Nicole told Zakiyah that Corey is saying Michelle is going home, but said that she asked Victor and he said that he didn’t know. Nicole told her that this literally comes down to James and what votes he decides to cancel out. Nicole told Zakiyah that James would be choosing between working with them, or to work with Victor, Paul, Natalie and Bridgette. Zakiyah said that she wished someone would tell Paulie that this comes down to James, but Nicole told her that James and Paulie are super close already.
2:45 PM BBT: James told Natalie not to worry about anything because they’re not seeing what’s coming to them. Natalie told him that Paulie has been calling her fake this entire time and Corey and Nicole have been talking bad about her since the beginning too. Natalie told James that Paulie’s group has been doing nothing but talking bad about Victor, but now they’re trying to act like his bestfriend. James told her that Victor knows what they’re doing. Natalie told James that Paulie is going to win if they don’t do something about it, that if they don’t take him out now, he’ll never get taken out. Natalie told him that they think she is some weak naive person, but Natalie said that she’s not going out without a fight.
6:30 PM BBT: Zakiyah and Bridgette were evicted. Complete recap of the double eviction here.
7:05 PM BBT: Paulie told Corey, Nicole, Paul, and Victor that he doesn’t care about what Michelle said, that his brother and his boys will tear that girl apart and said that his cousins and sister would beat her up.
7:10 PM BBT: Michelle told Natalie that she couldn’t believed she survived two evictions after making that speech twice. Natalie explained that they don’t see her as strong as a competitor as they did Bridgette. Michelle told her that she thinks it’s good that she cried since it makes her seem weak. Natalie told her to just play their game.
7:10 PM BBT: Nicole told Natalie that she doesn’t think Natalie has ever gotten personal about anything and has always kept it about the game.
7:15 PM BBT: Paul told Paulie that he was getting told that he was crapping on him all the time.
7:15 PM BBT: Michelle and Nicole sit down to talk about her speech. Michelle told her that Nicole did say that she wouldn’t put her up, but Nicole said that Michelle just wouldn’t be her target. Michelle told her that it is what it is and there is nothing she can do to take anything back. Nicole told her that it’s okay, that she’s giving her credit because Michelle just did a lot of things that she’s not willing to. Nicole told Michelle that she has nothing personal against her. Michelle told her that it’s just really hard to forget since she thought the two of them were really close. Nicole told Michelle that a snake plays both sides, which isn’t what she’s doing. Nicole apologized for not spending enough time with Michelle.
7:20 PM BBT: Paulie told Victor that he wants to put up James and Natalie with the intention on sending James home since James left him out to dry. Victor told him that if he wins again, he’ll put up Michelle and Natalie.
7:30 PM BBT: Corey told Natalie and James that Paulie is so passionate and freaks out because he just cares so much. Corey explained to her that the things Paulie had said about Zakiyah were all game, stating the fact that he’s said the same things about Nicole to people. Natalie agreed that she might have been able to handle things in a different manner, but emotions were just running so high and she wanted to be there for Zakiyah. Corey told her that he gets it.
Paulie joined them. Paulie told Natalie that one of the people who are causing drama are still in the house and said that he doesn’t know if she was pushed to do what he did with Zakiyah, but said that it wasn’t cool at all. Paulie told her that she has no idea about the conversations that him and Zakiyah have had, that everything she tried to tell Zakiyah behind his back were all things that the two of them had already spoken about. Paulie added that he still isn’t going to come after them since he gave James his word and he’s a man of his word. Natalie told Paulie that she’s genuinely sorry for hurting him and Zakiyah. Paulie told her that he’s sorry for making any comments that would have hurt her feelings.
7:45 PM BBT: Corey told James that Paulie does need to pump the breaks and said that hopefully he has learned his lesson. Corey asked James if he thought he made a good move during the double eviction. James confirmed that he did. James told Corey that he’s not going after Paulie and would never put Paulie up.
7:50 PM BBT: Michelle told Paulie that Zakiyah lied to them and said that she doesn’t want anything to do with him. Michelle explained that Zakiyah would say that she doesn’t want anything to do with him, but then would run to Nicole to tell everything to. Paulie told Michelle that Zakiyah was saying that she was campaigning against her and saying all sorts of bad things. Michelle told him that none of that was true, that she never said one bad word about Zakiyah. Michelle told Paulie that Zakiyah was saying that cuddling him last night was strategy. Paulie said that’s interesting since they boned last night. Michelle told him that Zakiyah said that she didn’t trust him, didn’t trust Nicole, and only trusted her. Paulie told her that Zakiyah told him that she only trusted him. Paulie told her that Zakiyah played him and he didn’t even realize it.
Natalie joined them. Natalie told Paulie that Zakiyah kept saying that he doesn’t like her and was only playing her. Michelle asked Paulie if he’s glad that she stayed, to which Paulie said that out of respect for Zakiyah, he was going to campaign for her to stay. Natalie tells Paulie that to her, Zakiyah was painting the picture that he wasn’t the greatest guy. Michelle told Paulie that Zakiyah was giving her reasons as to why she should go after him, saying that he was manipulating everyone in the house and won a lot.
8:05 PM BBT: Victor told Nicole and Corey that it’s pretty obvious that Michelle is going to be the next target.
8:15 PM BBT: Paulie told James that he should thank him now for getting Zakiyah out since she was apparently playing him the entire time.
8:20 PM BBT: Nicole asked Corey if they’re trying to get Michelle out this week. Corey told her that it’ll either be Michelle or Paul. Nicole told him that James is protecting Natalie to the death, even going against the two of them and Natalie for her. Corey told her that they might want to get Natalie out than.
8:25 PM BBT: Paul told James and Victor that Corey had not won anything until tonight, which just showed his cards. Paul told them that they should nominate Corey and Paulie together, ensuring that at least one of them goes home. Victor said that he’d much prefer a backdoor situation. James told him that they could use Michelle as a pawn. Paul repeated that this is just like the Frank and Bridgette situation where they need to ensure that at least one of them goes home.
8:25 PM BBT: Natalie apologized to Paulie about everything. Paulie told her that it’s alright, it’s just that he didn’t know what all this was coming from since he was being 100% honest with Zakiyah the entire time she was in the house.
8:30 PM BBT: Paulie told Victor that he was pissed at James, but now he feels like a dickhead since James really was protecting him this entire time. Victor told him that he just didn’t know what was really going on. Natalie told him that Zakiyah really made it seem like he wasn’t good to her. Paulie told her that he’d comfort Zakiyah after she cried about losing a competition. Paulie said that Zakiyah played him good, but Natalie told him that Zakiyah really was falling for him and did both love and care about him.
8:35 PM BBT: Paul told Victor to look at how easily Paulie is flipping now, trying to play the victim card as if he didn’t know what was going on. Paul told him that he’s not buying what Paulie is trying to sell and the two of them agreed to go with whichever side wins HOH.
8:35 PM BBT: Paulie apologized to James for getting so pissed at him when James was actually just looking out for him the entire time. Paulie told him that he just got caught up in the hype of everything. Paulie hugged James and told him that he loves him. After Paulie left, Paul told James that Paulie is trying to play the sympathy card and he’s not buying it.
8:45 PM BBT: Natalie told James that the last 24 hours was fun since they needed to spice things up. James told her that they’re going to spice more things up, but they do need a week off before they go back at it.
8:55 PM BBT: Nicole told Paulie that it was them three vs the entire house during that double eviction. Paulie told her that he knows. Nicole told him that they need to win HOH. Paulie agreed, saying that he doesn’t feel safe with even Paul, Victor, or James winning. Nicole told Paulie that Zakiyah wasn’t playing him. Paulie said that he knows, but has to act like he really thinks that she did. Paulie told Nicole that he’s contemplating putting up James and Natalie because of the way James left them out to dry like that. Nicole told him that there is a good chance that James could win the competition tonight. Paulie told her that if James does win, they’re in trouble.
10:00 PM BBT: Victor wins HOH. Full details here.
10:00 PM BBT: Victor celebrates his HOH win with Paul, and Paulie, telling them that it’s going to be another easy week. Paulie told Victor that Nicole expects to go up, so he might as well put her up. Paulie asked if they’re in agreement that Michelle goes home, to which everyone said that they are. Paul told Paulie that Zakiyah was going to end up shooting him in the face anyway, so it’s good that they got her out. Paulie told him that he’s fine with Zakiyah gone and said that he knows that Corey will be fine with Nicole being gone. Victor told Paulie that they should just put two girls up and wait to see what happens with the veto.
10:20 PM BBT: Paulie told Corey that he didn’t have a problem with Zakiyah, but said that he wishes James would have said something at the beginning of the week instead of trying to blindside them on eviction night. Corey told him that James is going to be a so disappointed when he goes back home and Natalie never talks to him again. Paulie told Corey that Victor is likely to put up Nicole. Corey told him that it doesn’t make any sense for Victor’s game to put up Nicole, that it should be Natalie, but said that he’s not going to press the issues too much. Corey and Paulie agreed that there was no way that Victor would turn on them this week.
10:25 PM BBT: Paul told Victor that they have the numbers to make a move against Paulie and Corey now, saying that if they don’t take the show now, they’re never going to get another chance. Paul told Victor that Corey and Paulie have made it clear that they don’t want a final five with them. Paul told him that they could try to reel in Michelle and tell her that they’re trying to clip her. Victor said that his one fear is putting Paulie up and he comes down. Paul told him that if he puts Corey and Paulie both up, one of them has to go. Victor asked if they should talk to Nicole beforehand, but Paul told him no, that they should blindside them. Victor told him that Nicole will be the replacement if either of those two were to win veto. Victor told Paul that he doesn’t trust anyone but him. Paul told him that he needs to trust him this week because he knows what he’s talking about.
10:30 PM BBT: Paulie asked Paul if Victor seemed set in his decision to put two girls up. Paul said that Victor is so set in his decision that he’s not even talking to him anymore. Paul told him that Victor is a team player, so they have nothing to worry about.
10:35 PM BBT: Paul told James about everything that Paulie had been saying about it. Paul asked James if him and Natalie were still on board to get Paulie out, to which James confirmed that they both were. Victor joined them. Paul told Victor that even James has been saying that now is the time to make a move against Corey and Paulie. Paul told him that if they take one of them out, they’ll only be facing two people in the next HOH, which are slim to nothing odds. James told Victor that there was a plan to backdoor him during the double eviction that was created by Paulie, which is what Da’Vonne was referring to. James told Victor that they’re down to eight people, so they can’t be doing pawns anymore. Victor told him that he’ll get the job done. James told him that Corey and Paulie aren’t going to be taking three strong players to the end like they’ve been claiming. Victor said that he’ll say in his speech that they’re lucky they’re getting to play in veto since that was a chance that he was never given.
11:05 PM BBT: Nicole told Corey that Paul is going to push for her to go up, so she said that she’s going to need a care package or else she’s screwed. Nicole told Corey that James won’t even look her in the eye, so he knows that he betrayed her. Nicole told him that she doesn’t want to go on the block, that if they let Michelle dodge what she has already dodged once today, she’s going to win the game. Nicole added that Paul, Natalie, and James are all people that would rather have Michelle in the house over her.
11:15 PM BBT: Nicole asked Victor if he knew what he was planning to do. Victor said that he didn’t. Nicole told him that she just wants him to know that she thinks the two of them are cool and that she’d appreciate it if he didn’t put her up. Victor asked Nicole if she has heard anyone in the house name drop him about targeting him during a double eviction. Victor explained that he already knows who it was, but wants her to be the confirmation. After about five minutes of prying, Nicole finally said that it was James, but said that he was only saying it to throw Da’Vonne off since she was going home that week. Victor asked who else agreed to the plan, to which Nicole listed off herself, Da’Vonne, then Victor cut her off and said that Corey and Paulie did too. Victor asked who she thinks he should put up. Nicole said she’d put up people who were after her. Victor told her that he’s going to do what is best for his game, so she can’t freak out.
11:45 PM BBT: Paulie told Victor that he’ll make it to final five with The Executives, but said that the first person he’s going to target is James.
11:50 PM BBT: Paul told Victor that Corey and Paulie just called him an idiot moments ago because they said he’d have to be one for him to put Nicole up. Michelle told Victor that Corey said he hates him because he always tries to come between him and Nicole. Natalie told them that they have the numbers and can vote them all out.
12:05 AM BBT: Michelle asked Paul if Paulie tried talking to Victor to get her put up, to which Paul confirmed that Paulie had. Paul told Michelle that Paulie didn’t scratch his back three weeks in a row after Paul had been doing what Paulie wanted, which is when he realized that Paulie was boning him.
12:50 AM BBT: Nicole told Corey that even if them two and Paulie stick together, they’re still going to be screwed if two of them go up. Corey told her that he’s going to push for Natalie to go home this week so that it frees up James.
2:25 AM BBT: Paul told Natalie and Michelle that worst case scenario would be for one of them to have the round-trip ticket. Natalie told her that it doesn’t matter, that they’ll still be fine since they have the numbers.
2:40 AM BBT: Michelle told James and Natalie that she’s going to get in Paulie’s head since he doesn’t do well under pressure. Natalie agreed, pointing out that she put him on blast on national TV, Zakiyah went home, then Paulie lost two HOHs in a row.
3:05 AM BBT: Paulie told Paul that Zakiyah is gone, Bridgette is gone, and Michelle is about to be on the block with another girl.
4:20 AM BBT: Paul told Natalie that he does get a little worried that Victor might hesitate to put up Corey and Paulie since that duo can be intimidating.
