Nicole has control of the final situation this week so it’s time for a nervous Paul to start pitching ideas to get himself out of the danger zone.
5:35 PM BBT – Paul goes upstairs to talk with Nicole. He lets her know Michelle thinks she’s staying. Nicole says Paul is good for her game, but Michelle is bad for it so Michelle has to go this week.
5:40 PM BBT – Nicole suggests Corey could give her the $5K Bribe to vote Michelle out in a tie-breaker.
6:00 PM BBT – Paul is making a pitch to her about saving him from the Block this week but also saying he’s fine with staying. He’s suggesting she could take him down and put up Natalie then they’d vote out the target 3-1 and she wouldn’t have to do the tie-breaker. Nicole tells Paul she doesn’t want to have to do any other noms this week but she understands why he’s nervous.
6:10 PM BBT – Nicole promises Paul she is keeping both him and Victor this week.
6:20 PM BBT – Nicole can’t understand why James and Natalie think she’d keep Michelle when they’re a threesome with her around.
7:30 PM BBT – House is separated in to its alliances and everyone is hanging out talking in their groups.
7:40 PM BBT – James thinks they can talk Victor in to throwing the next HoH comp (expecting Paul to be gone) and then it’ll be them three against just Corey.
8:15 PM BBT – Paul and Victor finally leave the HoH room. Nicole tells Corey they’re not getting any privacy like they used to.
8:25 PM BBT – Nicole tells Corey she could put Natalie up to avoid the tie-breaker but like she told Paul, she doesn’t want to do any more nominations and upset more people this week. Corey says he’d vote out Michelle even if Natalie was on the Block.
8:35 PM BBT – Victor relays to Paul that he’d be okay going up as a pawn next to Natalie next week if they need to do that.
8:40 PM BBT – Nicole wants to warn James in advance so he’s not upset about a blindside.
8:50 PM BBT – Corey is worried about winning HoH next week and doesn’t really want to. Nicole asks him to try and win it anyway.
8:55 PM BBT – Michelle and Paul having a talk in HN room. He wants to calm things between them. There are apologies and explanations. They talk about her atheist comment toward Paul, the laundry confrontation, him calling her the c-word, and the rest of their mess.
9:30 PM BBT – Paul and Michelle are still talking about all the drama. Things are calm between them.
10:00 PM BBT – Michelle tells Paul she thinks she’ll be voted out this week. She wants to know if she’s going so she can dress up for it.
10:20 PM BBT – Paul reports back to Victor and Corey about his talk with Michelle.
10:35 PM BBT – Corey still contemplating what he can do with his $5K Bribe and is back to considering asking someone to drop for it but isn’t sure if that’s too sketchy.
10:50 PM BBT – James promises Michelle she’ll be okay because Nicole has said that Victor and Paul need to be split up.
11:25 PM BBT – Paul and Victor hanging out as Paul describes his t-shirt line.
11:30 PM BBT – Michelle suggests to Natalie and James that she was playing dumb earlier when talking with Paul in the HN room.
12:15 AM BBT – HGs lounging around. Corey and Victor working out while Nicole watches them.
1:30 AM BBT – Paul checks in with Nicole and asks how she wants him to act about the plan this week. They wonder when Michelle will figure it out. Nicole tells Paul he can act however he wants.
1:45 AM BBT – Victor and Paul hanging out in the lounge and talking about fans and what they want to do when they’re out of the house.
2:00 AM BBT – Nicole tells Corey she isn’t interested in seeing any of this season’s HGs outside of the game besides Corey.
3:30 AM BBT – Houseguests have all gone off to bed.
Nicole locking down the Veto lets her keep her target Michelle in the hot seat and as long as Paul doesn’t freak out too much he should be good as noms are likely going to stay the same. Then later this week Nicole will have to let James know what’s going on and there’s an opportunity for Nicole to feel pressured and change her plans, but right now I think we can expect Michelle to go.
