This week’s nomination ceremony doesn’t hold much weight, as the veto winner will be the one making the final decision this week, however, there is a streak that could be coming to an end.
Nicole has managed to go more than 90 days without being nominated, but with Paul winning the HOH this week, that is likely to come to an end. While the nominations don’t mean anything this week, going unnominated was one of Nicole’s main arguments that she was to use if she made it to the final two.
Today’s nomination ceremony is only the first of two nomination ceremonies that the houseguests will be holding this week, as it is the beginning of the ‘Fast Forward‘ week.
Corey won the HOH, giving him and Nicole the power once again this week to decide which nominees were put up. Corey and Nicole both had a deal with Paul and Victor, but with Natalie gone, that left James all alone to work with whomever was willing. Corey and Nicole both spoke about working with James last week and agreed that it would be best for their game since he would for sure take one of the two of them to the final two if he were to win the final three HOH.
We’ve made it to the final six, which means that we’re getting down to crunch time. The moves made moving forward will have the most impact on whether certain people are able to make it to the end or not.
Victor is the new HOH, who is obviously working with Paul. Paul and Victor made a new final four alliance with Corey and Nicole last week, but now it was their time to decide on whether they’d honor that alliance or not. They have two couples to pick from taking out this week, with the guarantee that at least someone from one of those two duos will go home.
This week’s nominations will be an interesting one as another alliance will be turning against each other in favor of working with someone new, just as was done last week.
Nicole managed to win the HOH this week, but not before making a deal with James that she wouldn’t put him or Natalie up. However, Nicole and Corey are now working with Paul and Victor, meaning that it was likely that Nicole would be willing to go back on that deal. Corey gave Nicole a laundry list of reasons he thought that she had the right to turn on James, to which Nicole ended up finally agreeing to.
This week’s nomination ceremony is going to be unlike any other this season, as two separate HOHs will get to nominate one houseguest each.
Natalie won HOH last night while Michelle was given co-HOH by America via the care package. Corey and Nicole were the clear targets going into this week, but Nicole managed to get into Natalie’s ear and convince her that Paul had been throwing her and James under the bus, which Natalie ended up believing, going on to turn James against Paul as well.
