For the past few days Derrick and Victoria have been planning her exit strategy and it’s been all about boosting his game to get him to the end. She knows her run is over but as a gift to her friend she’ll do what she can to help get him to the end. Yesterday Victoria cranked it up and poured the fake drama all over Frankie.
Jump to 4:32PM BBT 9/9 as Victoria and Frankie arrive in the HoH room to discuss what’s got Victoria upset. Victoria just had a talk again with Derrick and she’s been caught up on their latest discussions. Now alone with Frankie she goes in to dramatic detail as to why she’s so upset with Derrick and how much he has betrayed her trust.
Victoria tells Frankie that Derrick let her know he wouldn’t vote to keep her and his loyalty lays with the guys. She says this is very upsetting because even if she was going home she thought he would vote for her and let Frankie make the choice.
Frankie is supportive and discusses with her how the guys have helped one another all season. It really seems to be convincing Frankie, but what is she trying to convince him of here? Well it’s obvious, but the plan is to make Frankie think Derrick does not have Victoria’s vote at a F2 scenario thereby increasing Frankie’s desire to take Derrick to the end.
I’m not sure if this will do much to influence Frankie’s F2 decisions should he have that control when the time comes, but it’s not a bad plan at all by Derrick and Victoria and she did a pretty good job working it. Later that night Frankie mentioned to Derrick how upset Victoria was with him (Derrick), so effective or not, Frankie did seem to buy what she was selling.
What will happen when Victoria isn’t evicted tonight as the HGs normally expect? Probably nothing and Derrick can continue this fake feud with Victoria to aid his chances. If Victoria ends up with some power next week then I’m sure she’ll use it to hers and Derrick’s advantage, but if she’s right back in this spot then nothing changes.
