12:20 AM BBT – Ari tells Ross that Brandi told her to vote her (B) out since it was a lost cause anyway. Ari tells Ross he can put her on the Block if he has to, but he better get to the end if that happens. They promise each other they’re not the other’s target.
12:45 AM BBT – Marissa tells Ross it would be safer for him than her to be the renom. Ross suggests Omarosa is the likely renom. (She’s not.) Marissa wants to make a deal with Mark that she’ll vote however he wants if he puts up Omarosa instead.
1:00 AM BBT – James lies to Marissa and says he doesn’t know what Mark is planning to do. James says the target remains Brandi so it won’t matter who goes up.

1:25 AM BBT – Brandi has an idea. She wants to suggest to Mark this is the chance to BD Ross. Ari thinks Omarosa would vote him out if he’s up. Brandi is very upset that Ross isn’t helping save her since they had a Day 1 deal.
1:35 AM BBT – Ari thinks Marissa would beat Ross if they’re F2. Brandi says she’d still probably vote for him over Marissa.
1:55 AM BBT – Omarosa tells Brandi and Ari that James is making strategical errors by handing over comp wins. She values comp wins then social game to determine the winner.

2:00 AM BBT – Omarosa promises Brandi she’ll vote to keep her if she can get one more vote. Otherwise, it’ll be a tie, Mark will evict Brandi, and Omarosa will be in trouble.
2:10 AM BBT – Brandi wonders if there’s any use in talking to Mark. Omarosa says to do it when James isn’t there since he’s the bitter one.
2:20 AM BBT – Brandi is frustrated that the guys are playing with more emotion than the girls.
2:30 AM BBT – Brandi says she’ll sleep on the idea of talking with Mark. HGs turn off the lights and go to sleep.
Mark has Brandi right where he wants her and the odds don’t look good for her chances to survive this round. She hasn’t given up yet though so we’ll watch for more talks on Thursday. There’s still plenty of time before the first eviction on Friday night so anything is still possible for her game.
