Nicole didn’t take too kindly to finding out Paul had been throwing her name around to Michelle and other HGs as this week’s target debate continued on for Big Brother 18. Now with Michelle on her way out Nicole was sure to return the favor last night in a talk with Zakiyah.
The ladies were alone in the bathroom when Nicole began to explain to Zakiyah how Paul was looking to take her out and Victor was in on it. Guess who could end up as a new target in this week’s Double Eviction?
Flashback to 8:41 PM BBT 8/8 Cams 3/4 to listen in on the conversation.
Zakiyah starts off asking if everything is good for this week and Nicole promises her “100%.” Nicole then lets Zakiyah knows that she had to fight along with James, Paulie, and Corey against two other HGs to make sure Zakiyah was staying this week. Zakiyah asks if it was Bridgette, but Nicole says no and then confirms when Z asks about Paul.
Nicole adds that Victor was the other HG going after Zakiyah, which doesn’t surprise her at all. Continuing on Nicole says that Paul is now trying to put a target on her (Nicole’s) back by telling other HGs that Nicole was the only one who wanted to keep Zakiyah.
Zakiyah promises Nicole she’ll keep this a secret but if she gets HoH then she’ll put both Victor and Paul up together. Nicole says she would make the very same move for the Double (nominate Victor and Paul).
Zakiyah is curious how she raised up as a target for Paul and Nicole claims he said she was a “comp beast” along with “so many points” and “he’s basically scared of you for some reason.”
They continue to discuss Paul’s possible motives along with his comments of Michelle being easier to control before settling on Paul’s desire to get closer to Paulie with Zakiyah’s departure.
Nicole lets Zakiyah know her four champions got together with Victor to let him know they were keeping Zakiyah this week so that’s been setted. She suggests James will cancel out Paul’s vote and another so her four allies can vote to keep her and she’ll be safe on Thursday.
Looks like Nicole has positioned herself well with Zakiyah using this information while painting a target on Paul’s back. Later Nicole let Paulie know she had turned the tables on Paul so he won’t be surprised by her move. From other conversations Paulie has suggested he wants Zakiyah gone soon, but it’ll be interesting to see if he has to take sides between Zakiyah and Paul in the next few rounds.
What do you think of Nicole’s decision to share this information? She threw a lot of names around there and has basically committed James and Corey to keeping Z, the latter of which was a sure thing but James had been wavering. Looks like that should be over for this round though.
