We’re just one day away from eviction, which means that we’ll see some last minute campaigning from Michelle and on Michelle’s behalf, as well as plenty of planning for what they’re going to do going into next week. It’s possible we might have some drama if James, Michelle, and Natalie find out that Michelle is going home tomorrow.
2:35 PM BBT: Paul told Corey, Nicole, and Victor that James has started packing because he thinks it’s the double eviction and said that if Paul were to leave, he’d likely be following him out the door. Paul added that Michelle told him that it’s crappy that they’re not telling the two of them who is going home, saying that he even told Michelle that it’s because they haven’t asked. Nicole told him that she hopes Michelle does come to ask. Paul told them that he’s going to do something to ensure that Michelle doesn’t crap on anyone while on her way out the door. Paul added that he doesn’t think they should tell James, Michelle, or Natalie anything because it would be better to keep them in the dark so that way James and Natalie are rattled before the HOH. Nicole agreed, saying that she’ll just make it hard for them to ask her who is leaving.
2:50 PM BBT: Michelle asked James what he thought she should do. James told her that she needs to go talk to Corey and Nicole. Michelle said that it’s painful to do that, but asked if she should do it before or after he does. James told her that she should do it before him so that he can be the closer.
4:00 PM BBT: Natalie told James that Corey and Nicole are just keeping their enemies close and will honor the final four deal that they have. James said he thinks so too, but said that he wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t survive this upcoming double eviction. Natalie said that neither Corey, Nicole, or Michelle would ever vote him out. James told her that Victor would either put him up with Michelle or Natalie, or possible Michelle and Natalie. Natalie told him that Michelle just has to win. Natalie added that she’d put up Corey and Victor on the block while Michelle would put up Nicole and Victor. James told her that if Victor came down, everyone would vote Nicole out over Corey.
5:10 PM BBT: Natalie told James that Victor studying so hard only makes him a bigger target. James told her that he’s starting to realize that Victor doesn’t care and knows that he’ll always be a target.
7:10 PM BBT: James told Natalie that he doesn’t think that Michelle is going home. Natalie agreed, saying that Corey and Nicole are just being nice to Paul for his jury vote.
7:20 PM BBT: Michelle asked James if he has talked to Nicole. James said he hasn’t and that he doesn’t need to, stating that his gut is right 99.999% of the time and his gut is saying that she’s safe. Michelle agreed, saying that she doesn’t need to talk to Nicole either. James told Michelle and Natalie that he knows that Corey and Nicole wouldn’t blindside him, stating that he’s a lot closer to Corey and Nicole than they think.
7:25 PM BBT: Corey told Nicole that he should give the $5000 to Victor in hopes that he saves them when they get down to final five. Nicole asked if he thought he should save the bribe for the HOH competition. Corey said no because he’s safe and using it during the HOH would be shady. Nicole told him that they’re going to look paranoid by giving it to Victor. Corey told him that it wouldn’t because Victor said that he’s open to taking it. Corey told her that giving Victor the $5000 would solidify their alliance with Paul and Victor. Nicole agreed.
Nicole questioned Corey what would happen if Victor went and told James about it. Corey said that there could be backlash, but said that he could tell Victor that it’s a secret. Nicole told him that if it does get leaked to James, they could just vote out Paul tomorrow. Nicole added that if he is going to bribe Victor, he should tell him that if this were to leak, Corey would know that he couldn’t trust them. Nicole told Corey that Victor is going to tell Paul, so she said that he should bribe Victor in front of Paul.
7:45 PM BBT: Natalie told Michelle that Corey and Nicole are just wanting to keep the drama to a minimum, saying that if they told Paul that he’s going home, he’d blow up everyone’s game.
7:50 PM BBT: Paul told Michelle that he doesn’t think he’s going to ask. Michelle told him that the DR was questioning why she wouldn’t ask when she’s a super fan. Paul told her that they go into tomorrow eviction without asking as a blind date.
7:55 PM BBT: Natalie told Michelle that she should talk to Corey since he’s a vote. Michelle said that she would, but asked what she is supposed to say even though her and James have been telling her that they’re sure she’s staying. Natalie told her to talk to James about it.
8:00 PM BBT: Michelle asked James if she should talk to Corey to see where his head is at. James said that she should, but Michelle told him that she doesn’t want to. James told Michelle that he knows that she’s staying. Michelle asked why she should talk to Corey then. Natalie told her that she just thought it would better to see where Corey’s head is at. Michelle told them that Corey and Nicole have been so mean to her all week by not talking to her. Natalie told her that she just needs to talk to Corey. Michelle told her that there is nothing she can do at this point since Nicole is so stubborn. Michelle added that she just has too much pride to talk to Nicole.
Natalie asked James in front of Michelle if he thinks that Michelle shouldn’t say anything to Corey or Nicole. Michelle interjected, telling them that Corey and Nicole’s minds are already made up. James told them that if Michelle is seen as a threat, then she’s a threat and there is nothing they can do about that. Michelle agreed.
8:25 PM BBT: After debating what they should do for half an hour. Corey and Nicole agreed that they should use the bribe on Victor, that way it solidifies their alliance with Paul and Victor, Victor would save them when the final five rolled around, and they could count on Victor’s jury vote if either of them were to make it to the final two.
8:35 PM BBT: Paul told Nicole and Victor that there is no way that Natalie is going to beat him, Victor, and Corey in the upcoming HOH. Victor agreed, stating that Natalie has never once beaten him in a competition.
8:55 PM BBT: James told Michelle that he knows that she’s staying, saying that Paul and Victor are probably just up in the HOH room with Corey and Nicole talking about the good times they’ve had in life. Michelle said that she thinks that Paul is staying. James questioned why Paul would be sad if he was staying. Natalie agreed, stating that Paul would be jumping for joy if he was staying.
9:00 PM BBT: Corey told Paul and Victor that to show that him and Nicole are serious about their final four, he wants to give him the $5000 to vote out Michelle. Victor started to tear up and accepted the bribe and agreed to vote Michelle out.
9:40 PM BBT: Natalie told Michelle that Corey and Nicole are expecting her to talk to them. Michelle told her that she just can’t stand those two right now. Michelle told James and Natalie that if she does go this week, she’s going to blow Nicole’s game out of the water, adding that if Nicole ever made final two, she’d never watch Big Brother again. Michelle warned James and Natalie that if Paul does stay, he’s going to come after the two people who voted him out.
10:35 PM BBT: Corey asked Nicole if she feels good about the deal they just made. Nicole said yes, citing how happy Victor was. Nicole told him that she’s afraid of breaking the tie to evict Michelle because James and Natalie are going to be mad at her. Nicole asked if they should tell James and Natalie about it beforehand. Corey said they shouldn’t, but Nicole said that she thinks they should. Corey told her that they should only tell if they’re asked. Corey added that they could tell James and Natalie straight up that Paul and Victor are coming after them, not Corey or Nicole. Nicole told him to say that Michelle made it clear that she was coming after Nicole.
11:25 PM BBT: Corey began talking to the live feeders while alone in the HOH room. He said that he believes him and Nicole could beat Paul and Victor in the end. He said that he feels like James has abandoned ship on him and doesn’t care anymore, as he’s already packing his bags. He said that he’d like for Natalie to go home tomorrow night in what he thinks will be a double eviction, but said that he feels like James will end up being the person who gets evicted second. He went on to say that he doesn’t plan on winning this upcoming HOH since him and Nicole are in a good spot regardless. He explained that if he were to be the one who put up James and Natalie, he wouldn’t get what he wants, which is Natalie out. He said that he rather just let Paul or Victor do the dirty work.
12:05 AM BBT: Michelle asked James if they’re bribing him to not tell her that she’s going home or to vote her out. James said that he isn’t taking any bribes and hasn’t been offered any. Michelle told James and Natalie that Nicole probably feels like she can have Paul, Victor, and Corey all on her side so that it would be them four vs James and Natalie. James told her that if she thinks she’s going home, she should go talk to Corey and Nicole. Michelle said that she doesn’t want to. Natalie told Michelle that Paul is the target and he’s going home. Michelle told her that Victor and Paul seem comfortable. James told her that Paul thinks he’s going home.
Michelle told James and Natalie that if she was in Nicole’s shoes, she’d want Michelle out too since they’re obviously working with Victor. James told her that Corey and Nicole don’t want Victor to be together with Paul. Michelle told them that Nicole has never been on the block and never has her named mentioned, stating that she’s been the only one to bring up Nicole’s name and said that nobody once has ever even considered Nicole as a backdoor option.
12:55 AM BBT: James told Natalie that they can’t fight Michelle’s fight for her, stating that she has to be willing to go upstairs and talk to Corey and Nicole herself. Natalie told him that she keeps telling Michelle to go talk to them, but James hasn’t been pushing her. James told her that sometimes you don’t want Michelle talking to people because she rubs people the wrong way. James told Natalie that he just doesn’t see them keeping Paul in the house. Natalie agreed, saying that Corey and Nicole know it would piss them off.
2:15 AM BBT: Michelle asked Paul if Nicole told him who they’re voting out tomorrow. Paul told her that he knows as much as she does.
