Paulie’s first apple pie is finished and he is ready to move on. He goes outside and laces up his shoes to run… “OHHHH say can you ZING!” plays through the house. Paulie looks up at the camera and announces to the HGs he isn’t going to do it. (Flashback to 8:18 PM BBT) Paulie gets up and jogs instead. Three minutes later Zingbot sings again. Paulie continues to ignore it. Feeds cut at 8:27 PM BBT. Allegedly one of the producers came over the PA and gave Paulie a personal invitation to get his rear to the DR.
Twelve minutes later the Feeds are back and Corey, dressed in his own punishment costume, is giving Paulie a “look, son” talk. He tells Paulie that he signed up for this. “Of course someone was going to to do this to you. [Target him for eviction.] Did you not think they would?” It’s a tough love talk as Corey tells Paulie this is the game, not everyone wins, but it’s a huge opportunity for them and he needs to play the game he signed up to play.
At 8:51 PM BBT Paulie heads to the kitchen to bake a pie as the next announcement from Zingbot has arrived. While preparing the next pie Paulie complained that no one even ate the first one. Well if you saw him make it you’d know why. Most people at least peel the apples which he instead simply cubed and tossed in the first time.
There wasn’t another pie call until this morning when Paulie was woken for a trip to the oven which he immediately complied with but then basically bailed on the flag waving while either pretending or actually falling asleep in bed holding the flag. Oh well. I guess production settled for Paulie doing at least part of the punishment.
Apparently Paulie doesn’t feel the rules apply to him. He’ll send you to Jury, but no one better expect him to comply with the same set of rules. What a poor sport and a terrible legacy to leave behind on your game. He is proving to be a very sore loser and it isn’t impressing his fellow Houseguests or the fans out there.
Do you think it’d be acceptable for Paulie to walk on being a Jury member because he didn’t get his way? Or should the same expectations be applied to him as everyone else? (Note: All HGs are allowed at will. It’s called a DOR: Drop Out Request.) Considering Paulie ended up blinking in a game of chicken with Big Brother over his pies I’m guessing he’ll do the same with Jury, so why sully your reputation with such threats that you won’t back up?
I’m not impressed but what do you think of this situation?
