4:20 PM BBT – Natalie and Michelle talking about nominations. Natalie doesn’t think Victor would come after them but thinks Paul would. Michelle tells Natalie that her original thought was that she wanted Nicole out. Before long Natalie has Michelle on board to target Paul. Michelle says he’s someone she always had in the back of her mind to go after since he’s playing such a great game.

Both girls are grasping at reasons for why they made their nominations but aren’t coming up with anything.

7:20 PM BBT – Paul is offended they bought what Paulie was selling them. He’s also very offended by the speech Michelle made about him.

7:30 PM BBT – Michelle feels stupid about calling Paul an atheist and hopes it doesn’t air.

7:35 PM BBT – Michelle is already regretting their hasty decision with these nominations. Michelle says she wants Nicole and Corey targeted next. Natalie and James say that’s fine and that’s what they’ll do.

7:45 PM BBT – Paul and Natalie talking calmly in the HOH room now. Paul tells her he was committed to her. She tells him she didn’t think he really was. Paul tells her he wishes she would have come to him about the things she was told by Nicole and Corey. He can’t believe she trusted them. Paul goes on and on about how he was devoted to the five and Nicole and Corey just played them. Paul asks Michelle why they’d go with the people who haven’t even approached them with promises and deals.

7:58 PM BBT – Natalie tells Paul she did trust him until she heard that he was throwing James under the bus from Nicole and Corey. She said she’s very protective of James.

8:14 PM BBT – Paul lets Natalie know that he has info on Corey concerning her. She asks him what it is but he will only tell her it’s something he said about her. Later he implies it was about Corey and Nicole thinking Natalie is only using James (this is true, they have said that).

8:20 PM BBT – Natalie and Michelle both regret what they’ve done. They’re now discussing backdooring Corey.

8:30 PM BBT – Paul and Victor meet in the storage room with a hug. Paul tells Victor that he has the girls regretting their decision and they’re considering backdooring Corey.

8:35 PM BBT – James tells Natalie and Michelle in Big Brother it’s never a good idea to change your mind once you’ve made a decision (WHAT??). Michelle says they just changed their mind about going after Nicole and Corey, implying what James just said makes no sense.

8:36 PM BBT – Michelle admits to Natalie that she wanted Nicole and Corey up but didn’t want to mess up Natalie’s HOH. Natalie tells her it’s her HOH too and she should have told her what she really wanted. Michelle calls Nicole a snake and says she wants her gone this week.

  1. If Paul actually gets through this week with him and Victor still here and Corey evicted I’ll be very impressed. As of the nominations he had literally the entire house minus Victor gunning for him. This would be the greatest block escape since Dan if both of them survive the week. Of course they don’t know this, but with Paulie most likely coming back next week it’s in all their best interest to evict Corey this week. This Veto is going to have huge implications for the game moving forward. Right now the only people actually studying the messages actively is Paul, Victor, and Michelle. Everyone else is asleep. Assuming Paul or Victor pull themselves off the block the big question will be does James do what Natalie wants, which is evict Corey, or do what he wants, which appears to be evicting Paul/Victor.

    • I think James will think with his currently useless erect small head brain instead of his useless empty larger head brain.

      • And that means he will do what Nat wants. Then I hope Vic and Paul sends them both home

      • I believe he is “seriously” doing some thinking about whats best for him at this point …He is doing more listening than talking right now…He is (I think) trying to put distance between Natalie and his game. He says he will support her decisions as HOH but he is not appearing to be committed to her decisions..(I hope that makes sense) It seems he prefers to stay in the backround during her HOH.. I would guess that he does not want it said that he is instructing Natalie or running her HOH. James may realize that next week Natalie/Michelle 2 of his alliance will not be able to play or vote and if any of the other 4 are HOH he is on his own.. James might realize that he is gonna have to make a choice between Natalie and staying in the game…Just wait for it..

      • I agree. I hopefully believe he’s holding strong on getting comp beast Vic out while letting Nat have her nom all to herself

      • It’s highly likely that James is a nice person but I think he stinks at playing this game. He’s not done squat.

      • You need to come up with another name for James like you have for Nicole and Corey. His game is going downhill fast and he may be dragging down Nat with him.

    • What everyone fails to understand is this. Victor can beat Paulie in the Jury Buyback. Send Paul or Corey out this week and Paulie more than likely will return. Send Victor out and there is a chance that Paulie and his mentally unstable head may not have a chance to return. Of course maybe Paulie and Victor can get so caught up in the comp that they both fail to win and someone like Z comes back.

  2. Paul demanded Nicorey to play with integrity but later he wanted to sabotage their study. Luckily everyone, including Mich (surprisingly) shut him down. Production, please hook your boy up with ridiculous punishment once he remains on the block with his boy Vic on Monday. For sure he would do it with integrity, honesty and calamity.

  3. Dumb. I like Natalie but her decisions sway with the breeze. She should have stuck with the plan to get rid of Nicole and Corey. Hopefully she follows through with the back door plan.

    • It’s not up to Nat tho. Even if she backdoors Corey, still 3 persons will vote to evict.
      James has the swing vote. As of now he wants to take out one of the strongest players left, good on him!

      • I know that’s what he personally seems to want, but with Natalie and Michelle both so vocally supporting the backdoor option I don’t see him going against them. At that point he’d be upsetting the remaining person from Paul/Vic, Michelle, and his girl. Just basing this on how he’s played the game so far, but I could be wrong.

      • For once he thinks like a sane player and wants to evict stronger players and still people watching are mad at him haha. Hopefully he does what’s good for his game and not following “the house”.

      • LOL yah he can’t win. Again, he can’t know this but if Paulie comes back to link up with Nicole and Corey that’d be extremely bad for his game moving forward so for his sake he should probably go with Natalie on this one.

      • But he doesn’t know that. He can only think for now and now that’s the best move he can make.
        James is destined to leave on the second DE, right? Haha.

      • LOL that could happen. Imagine they do take that shot at Corey and then evict the returner. The next episode would probably be DE and both Nicole and James could go out on DE again for both of them lol.

    • Natalie has a better chance of winning the game against Nicole or Cory then she does against Paul and Victor. She needs to get the bigger threat so now she has the votes .

  4. Hmmm. So Paul lies and manipulates as much as Paulie, which is what drove people here bat-shit crazy. I guess not having an “ie” after “Paul” gives you a pass.

    • It’s not the “ie”, it’s the “e g o”. IMO Paulie’s admiration of himself above all else results in a total disregard and disrespect of everyone else and that is what makes me intensely dislike him. I can appreciate his success with comps but there is no way I would ever want a self-serving jerk like Paulie to win this game. He preaches and I think believes it himself that he is a loyal “bro”. Shut up. If and it’s a big “if” he is not evil and demented and mentally ill, then his act in being those things is evil and demented and mentally ill. Paulie’s poor sportsmanship is just further evidence of how deeply he is into himself and his expectation that he is above everyone else’s rules and constraints. So, I don’t care if he wins comps, I only care that he loses this game because he is an asshole of a person. Of course, that’s just me.

      • yep Paulies interview with Jeff spoke volumes about the kind of person he is ..And his lies and self serving attitude continued even tho his game was over (to date)

      • Right, I think he said he made no mistakes, only his allies made mistakes. He said he has no regrets and I certainly believe that.

      • So Paul gets a pass? What show are u guys watching? Paul is a disgrace. He has zero integrity, made racist comments and lude comments about almost all the HG. Whenever he thinks he is with the power people in house..examples…referred to James as the Korean, said he would piss on Michele, called Natalie FT to her face…threatened to terrorize Bridgette once frNk was evicted..not sure why he gets a pass…last week he was all I don’t play that way when Paulie asked him to admit to comments he made..this week he is throwing Nicole and Corey under bus…fact is Corey has not talked crap about people all too much.

    • not yet..they have squashed the idea for now…if somebody counts the days and remaining HGs then they should know or at least think that somebody else might be back..

      • They previously discussed it and determined the game is on track, but someone would need to come back if there is another DE coming. So for now they are just putting it on the back burner.

      • Thx. I think if they knew nominations would have been different. I’m not sure they would be able to tell from the days remaining and the number of HGs as I read that when a juror comes back it will mean there has to be another DE so they may not consider that. I guess this is another of the BB “expect the unexpected” twists.

  5. So Nicole had Paulie’s and James’s protection from the get go. James stated last night that he had Nicole in his pocket and admitted that her parents love him outside the house. And now I see why I had the impression that he was protecting her all along. He was.Then she beds Corey ensuring her triple protection. It doesn’t end there. It seems production is in the mix, too, with an obvious agenda to get her as far as they can with their manipulation tactics, as we have discovered yesterday that they used their tactics on Nat. I was actually happy to see Nicole in the game at the start of the season. Now, I have no respect for “her” game, because she has NO game.

    • For a good while James was sharing info with Nicole who in turn was running the info back to Paulie.. I noticed her doing that early on..Nicole has never been a true friend/allie to James during the game.. She has stabbed James several times but I think James picked up on her betrayal during the Zakiyah saga…

      • It’s for sure that Nic used James over and over for info. And she acted so hurt over what she felt was a betrayal by James in the Paulie ordeal. She thought she could keep her hooks in all of the boys, but when the guys turned against each other, Nic chose douche bag Paulie and James chose Nat. It was ok for her to be the one using info to her advantage, but she was very two-faced in all of that. Still, James seems to think she and he have this connection and is trying to save her a$$. I hope James has to play his cards, Nat or Nic?

    • Yes and TY for that ! I happen to read a comment by you which brought me to ED Twitter page.. It was super interesting so TY! And Nic said she is playing Dan’s game. Not really I think prod is playing her game so she owes a lot of TY to many!

      • She says that she has thrown all of the comps she has lost. Maybe, but I’m not sure. It would be easy to do knowing she had so many others looking out for her from the onset. That would change the way anyone plays the game. In the end, hopefully she will be another failed attempt for production to control the game, kinda akin to the likes of Frankie and Vanessa. Glad my post “spoke” to you. Lol

    • I read on here a while ago that Nicole’s family was/is close to Paulies family too. But he really did mess his own game….. Too cocky!

      • Kinda seems like they might have put a few people in the game to protect Dingus. Of course there is no way to prove that, but a gal can speculate, right Tink?

  6. I said that the CO-HOH would not be able to play in the next HOH comp.. according to what I read on the promo …It was the fair way to do it.. Michelle/Natalie cannot play for HOH.. That leaves James with either Paul Victor Nicole
    Corey (depending on eviction status) and a returning jury member James unless he wins HOH best hope that the returning person is Davonne or Bridgette.
    cause either would be his best bet for help in staying in the game..
    I don’t believe that Paul or Victor will be evicted.I think it will be a BD for Nicole or Corey..James has made a mess for himself..On one hand he has Natalie and on the other hand he has $500,000 at stake.. I believe I would go for the money and see where my showmance went after the game..Jamesie’s baby mama can’t be too happy about the way James is playing..lol..

  7. Natalie, Michelle, and James should NOT flipped and backdoor Corey. It would be a horrible move if they do so. They got their nominations right. Paul and Victor should be targeted this week. If they evict Corey, I don’t see Paul or Victor targeting Nicole next week, I can see them targeting James, Natalie, or Michelle for putting them up. But if Paul or Victor are evicted this week, than the other half of Paul/Victor will go after Nicorey and vice versa. Keeping James/Nat/Michelle safe for another week.

  8. I think James is right that you can’t change your mind after nominating your allies!
    I do think natalie is sweet for being sad about it. I keep thinking about Jeff’s season where he trusted Kevin and Nat (Nicole and Corey) and got nominated right after he got an ally out for them.

  9. Paul is a beast though, he didn’t get mad at Natalie (my reaction for an ally nominating me) but instead kept trying to change her mind and succeeded!

  10. I honestly am not mad over these nominations. Either way, whether it’s Paul/Vic or Nicole/Corey up for nomination, this is a move that was bound to happen for one of the three duos left.

    I don’t have anyone to root for as I’m happy with the bunch that’s left (and hopefully the buyback won’t ruin that next week) so I’m fine to whoever leaves and whoever will eventually win.

  11. Natalie its not fit to be HOH and Michelle its worst who in their right mind nominate great player then cry its the wrong decision!!! when they are the biggest threat to their game. How you make a decisicion and cry about its ridiculous. The other thing who nominates because they make fun of her FT. Natalie need a memo America its not to concern in how you nominate you should do it for your own game.

      • And did u watch last night? I never saw on feeds the part about wrinkle boobs. Nat was showing them up close in Paulies face.. I could care less if people buy their boobs but Nat goes back & forth in regards to FT. She cannot have it both ways.. I work with a lot of girls like her. They need the compliments. It’s too draining!

    • I kinda agree w of what u say! Nat is showing how immature she is by winning HOH. I read on jokers about her freaking about her outfit& hair for her HOH win. She wasn’t happy w the pics her mom sent as she spent hours picking right ones. I get some of it but she really is insecure. Now she is crying over her nom’s? I cannot take her whiny baby voice she has been using lately on the shows. It’s not cute. It’s going to be an interesting week w her in “girl power” mode meaning we get a lot of her talking. Her voice changes making her a true cheerleader! Rah Rah..ugh… Muted!

    • Yeah both aren’t really meant for this power. If anything Paul should’ve won the HOH so the two girls can sit pretty. They just can’t handle the pressure

  12. The way I see it is James knows that Nat is so easily swayed. He watched Paul start attacking Nat with things that he knew would send her in a tail spin. James knows that Paul and Victor are very big threats in the game. He will wait until later this week to start talking reasonable to Nat. We all know how quickly things change in the BB house. I’m not going to worry about any of it for now. BUT I do wish that Nic and Corey would tell Victor about the comments Paul said about him. They just need time to sit down and talk about all the lies that have been said.

  13. I kinda hope Paul or Victor do get voted out …. they are the only ones that could beat Paulie.

  14. I knew that if Michelle got the Co-HOH..she would be easily swayed and she was. I just don’t know what to think about James. James is in the game for James, which is fine, but..he has Natalie on such a tight rope that I feel she won’t do what is best for her game.

    • I like James as a person, mostly because he generally is respectful of women, but I don’t have a lot of respect for his game this season. He says this is Nat’s HOH and he supports her decision and then he turns around intentionally makes her doubt herself. At this point, I don’t think he will try to win veto because he would have to make a choice of whether to go with Nat or basically with Nic instead. And according to what the results of the veto comp are, he could very well have to pick a side. No matter what he decides, I would love for him to be put on the spot. It’s time.

    • By the way, I really miss your AM Paulie roasts, but not enough to want him to return so we can enjoy them again. Know what I mean, Hoosier? hehe

  15. I was going to say I was really impressed with Natalie up until she started to regret her decisions. Now if Paul wins the veto or gets one of the girls(Not named Nicole) to use the veto on him to send Corey packing I would be amazed at how he would get himself out that situation. Pretty much if Paul gets himself and Victor safe than James is definitely screwed because Paulie would most likely be the returner. I could possibly see Paul relaying the info that James back stabbed Victor and himself as well to Paulie so he can get Paulie on board with a 3man alliance.

    • But it was Paul who turned on Paulie…. Wasn’t it? He brought up Paulies name to Victor?? Ya?

  16. A totally personal opinion only, I really find myself disliking Natalie more and more. Just had to say it.

  17. “Paul lets Natalie know that he has info on Corey concerning her. She asks him what it is but he will only tell her it’s something he said about her. Later he implies it was about Corey and Nicole thinking Natalie is only using James (this is true, they have said that).”

    He didn’t even mean to do this, it just kind of came through while he was defending himself about making comments about Natalie’s FT’s (LOL), and it REALLY played to his advantage. Natalie being such an insecure, personal player, she couldn’t help but just be consumed by the fact of houseguest insulting her. She’s so petty. That’s the same reason why Paul and Vic are on the block. Ha. Bad, bad player there. Silly girl, but she’s so simple minded you just can’t help but love her lol

  18. Come on Natalie and Michelle do not be scared. Please evict Paul. Paul needs to go. He is a very rude and obnoxious. He will probably come after Natalie and Michelle if they do not get rid of him now.
