It’s veto day in the Big Brother house, which means that the nominees fate will either be sealed or one nominee will gain the ability to save themselves for the week. We’re also sure to get plenty of talk about Thursday’s vote as well as plans for next week, as we are for every other day this week since there is so little to actually talk about with so few people left.
9:40 AM BBT: Natalie told James that Corey and Nicole never really wanted to have a final four with them. James told her that they did, it’s just now it isn’t convenient for them. Natalie told him that she’s fired up and ready to tear crap up again. James told her that he just wants her to mentally prepare for him to go home. Natalie told him that he’s going to win the veto.
10:00 AM BBT: Natalie told Paul and Victor that she just wanted to apologize to them for betraying their trust in case this is her last week in the house. Natalie explained that sometimes you just let the wrong people influence you and betray the people who actually had her back. Natalie went on to say that she does hope that they make it far and said that they have her vote in jury because they’ve been underdogs since day one. Natalie told them that if she does stay in the game, she’s not going to give up, but it willing to acknowledge mistakes that she has made in the past and move forward from them. Paul and Victor told her that they appreciate her apology and look forward to being friends with her outside of the house.
10:25 AM BBT: Paul and Victor began to talk about how Natalie just threw James under the bus by saying that the reason she went against them was because she trusted James’ judgement, which she said turned out to be wrong.
Corey and Nicole joined them upstairs, to which Paul told them about how Natalie threw James under the bus. Paul said that Natalie should have at least waited until after veto to jump ship with James. Corey said that they should send Natalie home. Victor told him that what Natalie is crappy, but at the end of the day, it’s fine. Paul told Corey and Nicole that Natalie has been using James this entire time for safety and now that he can’t offer that, she’s jumped ship. Paul told them that they have to win this next competition and send Natalie home, but said that once James leaves, Natalie is going to try to latch onto them, but said that they don’t have anything to worry about.
10:30 AM BBT: Natalie told James that Paul and Victor sounded and acted like they understood what she was saying and where she was coming from. Natalie told him about how Corey and Nicole went right upstairs the second that she came down. James told her that Corey and Nicole did the same thing to him when he tried talking to Victor the night he won HOH. Natalie said that she hopes that they’re not making fun of her for apologizing. James told her that they wouldn’t because Victor isn’t like that. Natalie told her that Corey, Nicole, Paul, and Victor’s bond is sealed and the only way that one of them survives next week is by winning the HOH or veto.
James told Natalie that his mind is made up about him going home this week, stating that even if he were to win the veto, he’s going to use it on her. James explained that he knows he will have other opportunities in life, such as Survivor and The Amazing Race. Natalie told him that she’s not letting him use the veto on her. James told her that he’s the one who made the wrong decision that got them into this mess and now she’s having to pay for it. James told her that if they both lose would be best case since he would know that he’s the one going home.
10:40 AM BBT: Paul told Victor that there is a reason he didn’t say certain things in front of Corey and Nicole, stating that if Natalie latched onto them once James left, that wouldn’t be a bad thing since she could win HOH. Paul told him that they need to convince Natalie that they’d take her to the final two over the other so that she would go after the duo that she knows wouldn’t do that, meaning Corey and Nicole. Victor said that they could get Natalie to do their dirty work if they needed that, but said that he doesn’t want that to happen. Paul and Victor agreed that if Natalie does win HOH, they need to stay as far away from her as possible so that Corey and Nicole don’t think that they’re the ones who influenced her.
11:05 AM BBT: Paul and Victor agreed that they have no reason to not take each other to the final two since they have an equal shot at winning, but said that they know both of them could beat anyone else in the final two. They said that they’ve had the hardest path up until this point and said that the only way they don’t make final two now is if they personally slip up.
11:35 AM BBT: James told Natalie that he’s going to put Corey and Nicole in hard spots by asking them straight up questions like if they have a final four with Paul and Victor and where the $5000 bribe went. Natalie told him that she wants to call Nicole and Corey out for being the ones who told them to put Paul and Victor up since they allegedly had a final four together. James told her that he could call them out in one of the two speeches that he’ll be getting. Natalie said that he should, but told him to not do it like Michelle did. Natalie explained that he needs to pull on heart strings.
Natalie told James that she wants Victor to know that Nicole wanted her to blindside him by not telling him that she was putting him up. James told her that he can’t call Corey and Nicole out since he has lied and backstabbed people too. Natalie told him that he’s never done it to Corey and Nicole, so it’s different. Natalie added that if he doesn’t want to call them out, he doesn’t have to, but said that if he is going to do it, he has to be mature and straightforward about it.
12:55 PM BBT: James told Natalie that if he wins the veto, he’s going to use it on her since she has a better shot at winning the game. Natalie told him not to crap on Corey and Nicole in his speech, telling him that Nicole has been crapped on enough and said that he should just go out with pride.
2:10 PM BBT: Natalie misheard Paul saying “Why? What am I going to talk about? My Medieval conversation” as Paul mocking her previous conversation with him by saying “My meaningful conversation”. Later when Paul got out of the DR, she overheard him again talk about crap talking her and James in the DR. Natalie told James that her heart is really hurting, stating that Paul walks around like he’s done nothing wrong when he called Michelle Buzz Lightyear. Natalie added that Victor is being nice just in case one of them wins HOH when they stay. James told her that it was a smart move. Natalie told him that she’s not going to be fake for a half million dollars and will just completely keep it real from here on out instead of just being cordial like she has been.
Natalie told James to not say anything to Paul, asking him to let her fight her own battles. James told her that he’s going to try to win the veto so that he can mess with them. James explained that he’d talk crap, get them scared by saying he’s after them, then just use the veto on Natalie. Natalie told him that she’d nominate Nicole and Paul if she were to stay and win HOH.
9:10 PM BBT: Corey won the POV. Full details here
9:15 PM BBT: Corey and Nicole started their campaign to get Natalie out over James. Nicole said that Natalie might be a secret genius who has been throwing competitions because she hasn’t had a need to win. Nicole told them that Michelle told her before she left that Natalie is a lot smarter than she thinks. Paul said that they need to think about who would do the best in upcoming HOH competitions. Corey and Nicole told them that the mental competitions are coming up next, insinuating that Natalie is better at that than James is. Paul and Corey said that they’ll just decide on who to get out later.
9:25 PM BBT: James told Natalie that he knows that his fate has been sealed and congratulated her on making it to final five. Natalie told her that he doesn’t know that he’s the one going, but James said that he did.
10:05 PM BBT: Corey, Nicole, Paul, and Victor agree to getting Natalie out over James. Full details of the plan can be found by clicking here
10:30 PM BBT: Natalie told James that the reason she was saying that she had a crush on Corey earlier in the game is because she was trying to get Corey to take Nicole out. Natalie told him that she’s excited to go to jury. James told her that she’s not going anywhere this week. Natalie said that she is because she’s going to campaign against herself. James told Natalie that he really doesn’t think that she’s going this way, stating that Victor is a lot like him in the sense that he’s straightforward and doesn’t change his targets. Natalie told him that she’s ready to throw in the white towel, stating that she doesn’t want to be in a house where everyone just avoids her and talks bad about her.
10:45 PM BBT: Paul told Victor that if Natalie stayed, she’s going to put him and Corey up since she would never put Nicole up. Victor told him that he’s going up regardless of who stays. Paul told him that James would put the two of them up and said that James would be more likely to work with Corey and Nicole than them two. Victor told him that this is what he’s been trying to say. Victor explained that the only reason he doesn’t want to keep James is because it’s going to seem like it was Corey and Nicole’s doing, making it even easier for James to go to Nicorey’s side. Victor added that James would know that Paul’s vote to keep him wouldn’t matter since Corey and Nicole were the deciding votes.
Victor finally said that they can get Natalie out since it makes Corey and Nicole happy, stating that they’re the two who are competing in this next HOH while he’s sitting out. Paul told him that if he sees Corey or Nicole trying to throw the HOH to James, that is who he’ll put up next to James once he wins.
11:15 PM BBT: Nicole told Paul that James probably wants to go at this point. Nicole added that she doesn’t want James to beat himself up because of Natalie. Natalie went on to tell Paul that it was Natalie who told her that he was an atheist, not Michelle.
11:20 PM BBT: Victor told Paul that Natalie wants James to go home. Paul agreed, saying that James probably wants to go home, which is why he wants to do the opposite of what James and Natalie want.
11:35 PM BBT: Corey told Nicole that they need to get back on good terms with James so that if he wins the next HOH, he doesn’t put them up. Nicole told him that she’s going to be so pumped if they get Natalie out since it is so good for her game. Corey told her that they’re voting Natalie out no matter what Victor says.
12:30 AM BBT: Victor told Paul that if he thinks that Natalie should go, he trusts his judgement. Paul told him that he just feels better going against James than he does Natalie based off of how each has competed in prior competitions.
12:35 AM BBT: Corey began hinting to James that he might be staying. James told him that he is thinking that he’s the target and is going home. Corey told him that he’ll just have to wait and see if that is true or not. James told him that they better not do anything crazy. While smiling, Corey told him that he’s not doing anything. James told him that he was going to ask them to vote him out because he’s the reason that Natalie is nominated. Corey told him that he doesn’t want to hear that crap and said that he needs to not get caught up with Natalie and should just fall back and wait until after the game is over.
