It’s eviction day in the Big Brother house, which not only means that we’re going to be down to the final six by the end of the day, but we’re also going to have a new houseguest in power who will get to decide this week’s nominees. On top of all that, today’s eviction is planned to be a blindside, which has all the potential for some good fallout!
1:20 PM BBT: James joked with Michelle that he thinks she’s going home. Michelle didn’t believe him, but James told her that she should still go talk to Corey and Nicole about it. James and Michelle both agreed that if she was the target this week, Nicole and Corey would have talked to him about voting her out to avoid the tie breaker. Michelle told him that it would make sense for Corey and Nicole to evict her because they’d have Paul on their side. James told her that Corey and Nicole only want Victor on their side.
1:50 PM BBT: Michelle told James and Natalie that if she does go today, she’s going to call Nicole out on her way out the door. James told her that if she was going home, Nicole would have told him. James explained that he could see Nicole not telling Michelle or Natalie, but said that he knows that Nicole wouldn’t blindside him because he has never done that to her. Michelle told them that it would make sense for Corey and Nicole to make a deal with Paul and Victor so that it would be three vs two in the HOH competition. James told her that’s true, but questioned how they’d be able to trust Paul and Victor.
Natalie told Michelle that Nicole wouldn’t blindside James and that Corey and Nicole know that if she goes home, her and James will be after the two of them. James told Michelle that Nicorey think they can beat her, but know they can’t beat Paul. Natalie told Michelle to go campaign and ask if she’s going home, but Michelle refused, saying that she can’t change anything at this point. Michelle added that they’d be stupid to keep her in the house when they know she’s gunning after Nicole.
2:10 PM BBT: Paul told Nicole and Victor that Michelle is questioning him about whether or not he knows who is going home between them. Nicole told him that she can tell that James wants to ask her who is going home, but hasn’t.
2:15 PM BBT: James told Natalie that once they get down to the final five, he believes that Corey and Nicole would save them over Victor since they didn’t put them up when they both had HOH. Natalie told him that Nicole knows if she were to make final three with Corey and Victor, both of those boys would take her to the end.
6:40 PM BBT: Michelle is evicted. Full details here
8:40 PM BBT: Victor is the new HOH. Full details here
8:45 PM BBT: Corey, Nicole, Paul, and Victor celebrate Victor’s HOH win in the have-not room. Victor told them that now they just have to make sure that they win the veto. Paul told them that they’re all guaranteed final five, then next week it’ll be four vs one, so he said that they should be able to make final four like was planned. Paul told Corey and Nicole to just not listen to anything James or Natalie say this week. Corey and Nicole both agreed that they wouldn’t. Paul told them that once they take James away from Natalie, she’ll crumble next week. Paul added that they need to let James and Natalie just guess as to which is going home all week without letting them know which of them is actually going.
8:50 PM BBT: Natalie told James that they’re going on the block together tomorrow. Natalie told him that if she wins the veto, she’s going to use it on him. James told her not to.
9:05 PM BBT: Paul and Victor celebrate Victor’s HOH in the storage room. Victor told Paul that they’re going to evict the person who evicted him, which is James. Victor added that if James pulled himself off, Natalie would go home with a 2-1 vote. Paul and Victor both agreed that Corey and Nicole proved their loyalty last week, so now they’re going to repay them by keeping the two of them safe this week.
9:40 PM BBT: Victor told Nicole that he doesn’t want her or Corey to feel like they have anything to worry about this week. Nicole said that she won’t and that she trusts them. Nicole added that she just wants them to go out and get the veto so that they can keep the nominations the same. Victor agreed, telling her that he wants to evict the person who evicted him.
9:55 PM BBT: Natalie told James that now Corey and Nicole are on Paul and Victor’s side. Natalie added that Corey and Nicole played them. James agreed, saying that Corey and Nicole knew that they’d be safe if Paul or Victor won. Natalie told him that now Victor is going to be gunning for them since they betrayed him. Natalie added that she begged James to vote Corey out, and now it’s come back to bite them. Natalie told James that if she wins the veto, she’s going to use it on him. James told Natalie that she has a good shot at winning the game since next week when he’s gone, Corey and Nicole wouldn’t come after her because they’d be leaving another duo in the house for final four.
Natalie told James that Corey and Nicole just blindsided them even though they had a final four together. James told her that he’s going to tell Victor about that final four and spill all the beans before being taken out. Natalie told him that Corey and Nicole are going to win it all.
10:00 PM BBT: Paul told Victor that he’d bet anything on the fact that Natalie will abandon ship with James before the week is over.
10:45 PM BBT: James told Natalie that they can’t get mad at Paul or Victor since they did put them on the block and voted Victor out. Natalie told him that she tried telling him that she didn’t trust Corey and Nicole. James told her that it’s obvious now that Corey, Nicole, Paul, and Victor are all working together. James added that he thought he could trust Corey and Nicole, stating that the fault is on him. Natalie told James that she will sacrifice herself for him this week. James told she shouldn’t do that. Natalie told him that she’s over it and is ready to leave.
James told Natalie that he’s going to remind Victor that Natalie fought for him to stay and will suggest to Victor to put Corey up next to him instead of Natalie. Natalie told him that she thinks it’ll be Nicole and Victor in the final two. James and Natalie both agreed that they’d vote for Victor to win if that was the case.
1:05 AM BBT: Nicole told Corey that James is going to tell Paul and Victor that they had a final four with him and Natalie. Corey told him that it doesn’t matter and said that they’ll just confirm that it’s true and make it seem like it isn’t a big deal.
1:10 AM BBT: James tells Paul and Victor that the reason he voted out Victor and didn’t make a final four with them is because he and Natalie already had one with Corey and Nicole. Victor asked if it was made before or after Paulie had left. James told him that it was made after. Victor told him that only proves that James was only loyal to him and Paul when it was convenient since he was taking Paulie out for everyone. James told Victor that he knows that he deserves to go on the block, but asked for Victor to not hold anything against Natalie since she really did want him to stay.
1:20 AM BBT: Victor told Corey and Nicole that James told them that he made a final four with them two after Paulie left, which Victor said is solely on James for being the one to abandon ship after he took Paulie out. Nicole denied ever having a real final four with James and Natalie, but Paul and Victor told her that it doesn’t matter. Paul told Corey that James was trying to keep Natalie from going up by trying to get Victor to put up him with James instead. Nicole told Paul and Victor that Natalie told her just this morning that she didn’t actually want Victor to stay last week and actually wanted Corey to stay.
Paul told Corey and Nicole that the one thing they don’t ever need to worry about is him and Victor’s loyalty. Nicole told them that she knows and trusts the two of them. Victor told them that they’re going to be fine this week no matter what, even if they weren’t to win veto, but said that he wants them to win veto so that he’s ensured the satisfaction of sending James to jury.
1:40 AM BBT: James tells Natalie that he told Paul and Victor about the final four with Corey and Nicole, stating that he went against Natalie’s wishes by evicting Victor because he thought it was in their best interest to protect the final four that they had with Corey and Nicole. James told her that he made it clear that she wanted Victor to stay the week that he voted him out. James told Natalie that she’ll have two shots at saving herself next week, listing off the HOH and then the veto competition. Natalie told him that if she wins the veto this week, she’s going to use it on him. James told her that she isn’t, but Natalie told her that she is and there is nothing he can do about it.
1:55 AM BBT: Victor told Natalie that he promises that she’s not his target this week. Once Victor left, Natalie told James that he’s the target this week and she’ll be the target next week.
