After days of suspicion and truth seeking missions the clock has run out for Da’Vonne as she officially becomes my pick for tonight’s elimination. If things continue on as they are now then we won’t even see a tie-breaker.
Despite starting out with an eight-person alliance then helping create a five-woman alliance we’re seeing Da’Vonne fall back to just two votes of support. Michelle and Zakiyah are in Day’s corner but that brings her up three short of where she needs to be because with Paul in the driver’s seat for any final decisions the outlook isn’t good.
Obviously Paulie is pushing to see Da’Vonne go and he’s got Victor on his side of that. Then we’ve got Nicole and Corey with Corey being happy to join the guys as well as voting in line with Nicole who desperately wants Da’Vonne gone. That desire I think is in part a left over from when she feared Da’Vonne would start spilling beans about her game then when Day heard Nicole was spilling beans on her behalf, well all those beans counted up to bad stuff for Da’Vonne’s longevity on Big Brother 18.
That still left her with a fighting chance if she could get James and Natalie’s votes. She went to James Tuesday night after several reassurances of his vote going to keep her and the cracks started to show. He let Day know that his support would only be there if it wasn’t a tie or if that tie wouldn’t for sure go against her. James set himself up in conditions that he knew wouldn’t lend themselves to her getting his vote to stay.
Reaffirming James and Natalie’s vote was a quick talk Wednesday night when the two agreed that Da’Vonne’s mood had soured. Both agreed they didn’t want her to go only then to both agree that they were voting her out. Well okay then. Their votes take us up to 6-2 and I think that won’t be a surprising outcome tonight.
Michelle and Zakiyah could be the lone hold outs but Zakiyah has told Paulie she’ll vote how he wants. He doesn’t need her vote but he may take it all the same. Even if Zakiyah stays with voting out Bridgette then I think there’s a chance of Michelle flipping over to avoid being the odd Houseguest out. I wouldn’t be surprised by that move. Then again, Michelle may actually think Bridgette is going, it’s hard to be sure on this, but in that case she’s in for quite a surprise.
So we’ve got 6-2, 7-1, or 8-0 as our likely vote tallies tonight and they all add up to Da’Vonne being evicted. Get ready for it.
