Houseguests are making their moves against Paulie Calafiore this week on Big Brother 18 and now that he’s in the danger zone they want to keep him rattled. Taking a page out of Paulie’s own playbook the HGs went on the offensive with a takedown on the Live Feed.
Earlier this morning James, Paul, Victor, and Michelle gathered around Paulie in the kitchen intent on getting his mind off the pending Veto battle and focused instead of the drama in the house. You might remember this from when Paulie went after Tiffany to shake her before the comp. Did it work on Paulie?
The plan was devised just before the Veto players were picked to make sure Paulie was rattled so this was all a coordinated effort among them. The group is going after everything they can with Paulie by calling out his multiple deals, proposed backdoors, and sneaky game moves.
Michelle gets the ball rolling talking about how Paulie pushed to get Da’Vonne out despite her not being bad for so many HGs including Paul who didn’t want her out but let Paulie have it. Paul knows Paulie was going around saying Paul couldn’t be trusted even after he did that for Paulie.
Michelle digs in saying everyone trusted him and she did too until he went back on her. Paulie counters that he wasn’t sincere to her deal but was with the guys because that’s what he really wanted. She points out he can easily start saying that now since it’s all blown up.
Paul continues, accusing Paulie of having pitted him against James and says it was working. Paulie questions what he ever said and Paul assures him there was plenty. Paulie tries to defend saying Paul was in on the planning to go after James but Paul denies it all. Paul is using this to say he can’t trust Paulie anymore.
None of the HGs were really trying to get down to the truth, they just want to work over Paulie here.
James jumps in with the comments Paulie said to Natalie about kissing, but Paulie says that was just a joke. Michelle points out that Paulie never made those kind of jokes with her.
Michelle is relishing the opportunity to put the digs in on Paulie. Jump forward to 9:55 AM BBT. He’s upset and accusing her of personal attacks but she reminds him it was just blowing up his game and that wasn’t personl. As Paulie repeatedly tries to go back to examples of Derrick and Cody she finally cuts him off and tells Paulie “you’re never going to be Cody or Derrick.” Ouch!
The arguing continues as Paul calls Paulie out for saying James needed to go after what happened with Zakiyah. Paulie denies but Paul gets very specific on details and Paulie yields but says he was just upset by James’s betrayal.
Victor now gets involved and tells Paulie he was making too many deals too early. Paulie says Victor wouldn’t know because he wasn’t there. “I know, you voted me out!” Victor replies.
James is getting back in the arguing again. Jump to 10:15 AM BBT. He calls out Paulie for tossing his name around as a target when he was never doing the same to Paulie. Victor talks about how Paulie had convinced him the 3-person alliance was a real thing so they needed to target James and Corey.
This talk has gone on for nearly an hour when it starts to simmer down. There was so much to this we’d have pages upon pages to transcribe it all. You’ll really need to go back and watch it on the Feeds rewind. If you don’t have the Live Feeds yet there is a one-week free trial period.
As things start to calm down Paulie asks Victor and Paul to please not shun him if he’s on the Block after Monday. He wants things to be comfortable. They fist bump and bro hug it out.
Paul leaves and heads back to the London bedroom. Michelle is there and says she wishes things had gotten more intense, but Paul assures her the damage was done and they got what they needed with shaking Paulie up before the comp. Paul says Paulie now knows that if he doesn’t win this Veto that he’s going home. Yep.
So what do you think of the group’s plan to go after Paulie? Will this only add fuel to his fire or do you think it’ll discourage his efforts even more? Last night Paulie was in tears so the emotional weight of a pending end to his game is definitely getting to him. His opponents may take any advantage they can get when Paulie has a Veto record like he does.
