It’s the day after the veto competition, which means that we’re sure to see plenty of discussion on which nominee they think they should be taking out on Thursday. We have the potential for some alliance drama if Paul and Victor end up switching back to wanting to evict James, as Corey and Nicole plan on doing the opposite.
11:30 AM BBT: Paul told Victor that the reason he wants to evict Natalie over James is because of their mindsets. Paul explained that James is defeated and wants to give up, while Natalie is ready to turn into Rambo. Victor told him that it might not actually be like that. Paul told him to look at prior competition performances, but Victor told him that they don’t know if James has been throw competitions or not.
11:50 AM BBT: Natalie told Paul and Victor that she’s going to campaign for them to vote her out so that James can stay in the house. Natalie explains that if she won the veto, she was going to use it on James anyway. Natalie told them that she rather be in the jury than to be alone all next week. Paul asked her what her demeanor would be like if she were to stay. Natalie told him that if she were to stay, she’d give the competitions her all like she has been doing this entire time.
12:00 PM BBT: Paul and Victor both didn’t believe anything Natalie said, both said that she was trying to use reverse psychology. Paul reminded Victor of just yesterday when Natalie threw James under the bus. Paul told him that they should tell Natalie that they’ll do what she wants by voting her out to see how she reacts.
1:10 PM BBT: Natalie and James had a small argument outside that continued on when they went back inside. Natalie told James that she wouldn’t talk to him again if she were to work with Corey and Nicole once she left. Natalie told him that she’s fine with staying or going this week. James told her that he feels the same way, but said that he ultimately feels responsible for her going home if that were to happen. Natalie told him that she let him take charge and followed him, making it just as much her fault as it is his. James told Natalie that Corey, Nicole, Paul, and Victor might have already had a talk about keeping him instead of her.
1:30 PM BBT: Paul and Victor filled in Corey and Nicole about Natalie campaigning for herself to be the one to go over James. Paul told them that it was reverse psychology and questions if Natalie would still be saying these things in front of James. Corey told them that he doesn’t want either of them walking out the door thinking that they’re the one who saved the other. Paul agreed, telling him that James and Natalie are both trying to win America’s Favorite by trying to save the other. Paul went on to say that he’s such a threat to Natalie’s game because he has her completely figured out.
2:05 PM BBT: Natalie told James that if he stays, he’s going to work with Corey and Nicole while she would work with Paul and Victor. James told her that he could work with Paul and Victor. Natalie told him that if Corey and Nicole win the next HOH, he better work with them. Natalie added that if the vote 2-1, Paul and Victor will know that Corey and Nicole just crapped on them. James told her that Corey and Nicole keeping him would be the perfect time to strike against Paul and Victor, so he said the thinks that they’re going to do that. Natalie asked James to just let her know if she’s going to be the one to go. James told her that he doesn’t think that he’d be told if he was going to stay.
2:25 PM BBT: Nicole told Corey that if they were in the same position as James and Natalie, she’d want them to keep Corey over her too since he has a better shot at winning the game than she does. Nicole told him that if they make it to final three and she wins the final HOH, she’s going to say that she wants to beat the best to be the best, then choose to take him. Nicole added that if she was playing strategically, she wouldn’t take him.
8:15 PM BBT: Nicole told Corey, Paul, and Victor that Natalie is in love with Corey, stating that she would say he was sexy all the time during the first week. Paul told them that he’s 1,000,000% certain that the drone that they saw last week had to do with Natalie. Corey and Nicole agreed. Nicole said that she thinks it was a message from America that they wanted things to change and at the time of that message, she wasn’t targeting Natalie. Paul told them that they still have to make sure that Natalie feels like she’s saying so that James is blindsided on Thursday before the competition.
1:10 AM BBT: Paul told James that Natalie blamed James for the two of them turning on Paul and Victor, but after Corey had won the veto, Natalie campaigned to them to evict her. Victor added that it sounded like Natalie was throwing James under the bus. James told them that he can’t be mad about him going up since he was the one who voted Victor out. Victor questioned if he could really blame James for that since it was Natalie who actually put him up. Paul asked James if he was the one who told Natalie that he was coming after James. James told him that it was Nicole who told both of them this before Paulie’s eviction.
1:20 AM BBT: Paul told Victor that they need to make sure that they’re the ones who tell Corey and Nicole about their conversation with James before James is able to do it because Paul said that it might make them look like they’re questioning Nicorey’s loyalty. Paul said that Natalie is one billion percent going home, but that they should still keep up the ambiguity. Victor told Paul that they might not be James’ target after all.
1:25 AM BBT: Natalie told James that she knows that even if he is the one who goes this week, she’ll be following him into the jury house the next week, adding that it’ll be that way no matter which of them stays. Natalie went on to tell James that Nicole is in a good spot because she knows that if she’s in a final three with Corey and Paul or Victor, they’re all taking her to the final two. Natalie asked if he was told that she is going home. James told her that he hasn’t, that nobody has told him anything about which of them is going home.
