On Friday Paulie spent a long time sitting and conversing with Bridgette, the initial target, over how they can work together to get his new and improved target, Da’Vonne, on the Block and out the door.
Right now we’ve got Bridgette and Paulie on the Block but they may not end up being the final noms if this Veto competition changes things up like they’re planning.
What they hope to pull off is either Paulie or Bridgette winning the Veto and using it to save themselves. From there Paul will supposedly name Da’Vonne as the renom and then she’ll be the one leaving this Thursday.
There will be three more players drawn to join in the comp alongside Paul as HoH and Bridgette & Paulie as the nominees. As Paulie explained it, there is no chance whatsoever that Da’Vonne can be picked to play. He does understand simple odds, right?
Bridgette suggested they instead consider the probabilities. We’ve got eleven players left in the game. Now they said the HG Choice chips have been added back in to the mix instead of having their names becoming picks. That’s too bad because I actually liked that method. Either way, that gives Da’Vonne a one in eight chance of being drawn. Not impossible and better odds than Frank had of getting the 1:12 Round Trip ticket.
However, even if Da’Vonne is drawn to play Veto then she still has to actually win it. After two seasons in the Big Brother house Day has never won a single comp. She did come close in the recent HoH endurance comp, but close doesn’t win you safety.
Should either nominee get to do a HG Choice then watch for Bridgette to pick Natalie and Paulie would probably pick Corey. Bridgette questioned if it’d be too obvious for her to pick Corey or Victor and Paulie thought it would be a bad idea. He redirected her to Natalie and that’s what I’d do too. I wouldn’t want to pick Corey, have him win, then watch as he uses it on Paulie and I stayed on the Block to hope this Day renom plan happens.
We’ll be watching for the Veto player picks later this morning which should be around or a little past 12PM BBT. If Day gets picked to play then we’ll have a little extra boost of panicky drama today otherwise the big question is whether or not the winner will actually use it and whether or not Paul will follow through.
Last night after the nominations ceremony Paul pulled Bridgette aside and promised her this plan was real and Da’Vonne was his main target. That’s a deviation from his previous talks where he asserted to his allies that Bridgette was his target but he wouldn’t fight the majority if they decided otherwise. Paul also broke from character for a bit to promise Bridgette that while his speech was harsh it was in part trying to make for good television and also an effort to hide their BD-Day plans. Nice to see Paul holding on to knowing this is just a game.
Who do you want to see drawn to play in today’s Veto comp? Should Day get a chance to fight for her game? Zakiyah and James have warned her if she’s playing to not let this one get away. Paulie has also promised to heckle Da’Vonne like he did with Tiffany to make sure she’s rattled going in to the comp. Seems like that’d give away the plan, but we’ll see if it’s even an issue.
Update: Players picked. Paulie picked Victor. Natalie was also selected, possibly picked. Corey is also playing as the 3rd. Nicole is hosting. So Da’Vonne was shutout from the draw and won’t have a second chance to play for her safety again.
