Natalie takes the opportunity to call Paulie out on saying he wanted to Backdoor Victor after he came back. He denies it. She says Paulie told everyone he left Victor a nasty message, but now they know he was lying and lied to Victor in his message with a nice, friendly goodbye.
Paulie next jumps to asking Natalie who has been grabbing her inner thigh. She says no one has but mentions that Paul has tickled her on her leg. Later Paul tells Paulie that he did NOT like Paulie dragging him in like that when there was zero flirting involved. When Natalie denied Paulie’s suggestion here he started yelling at her that she was a “f**king liar! Several HGs cut in with a “whoa whoa whoa!”
Natalie finally decides she’s had enough and leaves after apologizing to the guys (they are all there) for any flirting that made them uncomfortable. Paulie tells her she should stop flirting with anyone at all. He yells at her “Don’t f**king lie and be fake which is exactly what you’re doing!” as she leaves the room with James.
It’s 2:12 AM BBT and Natalie is gone with James but the rest are there. I thought Zakiyah had left a bit ago but she’s there now. Bridgette calls out Paulie for telling her explicitly that Zakiyah was his target at the start of the week. he denies but she insists that is what he told her. Zakiyah is there taking this all in.
Few mins later Paulie and Corey say that Natalie is “1000%” the most fake HG in the house. Bridgette says she didn’t want to believe that Paulie made the comment Natalie said he did. Paulie replies, “What? About her FTs?” Remember Paulie has been calling Natalie “FT” for “fake titties” for weeks now and he’ll do it with her in ear shot. He thinks it’s hilarious. Paulie tosses in another “Jersey girls” comment like he had been doing all night. It hasn’t been complimentary.
Bridgette says she’s disappointed that he’s saying that and disrespecting his entire state. Paulie gives a smug smile and replies, “my whole state? Jersey girls know what they are.” He continues, “if you’re point was to make me feel bad, I feel nothing.” And that’s that.
Things are looking really bad for Paulie and he seriously doesn’t even see it yet. Paulie likely insured James would go against him with his ACP power on Thursday night after attacking his showmance partner Natalie. Paul wasn’t happy with Paulie dragging him in to this either and likely won’t have many issues going against him as planned.
Right now the secret plan is for Zakiyah to be evicted but Paulie somehow doesn’t see this as happening. It will. Paulie will then need to fight hard and he’ll have a shot at either HoH or the Veto to stay in the game tonight with the big Double Eviction. He may end up needing it too for his survival.
Big Brother is an ugly game at times, but Paulie is making risky choices in his words and alienating allies with his rants like this. I don’t see how it can possibly help him moving forward.
What do you think of this mess? Was Paulie right to call Natalie out and in the way he did it? Will this come back to haunt Paulie in the coming weeks or will it stir HGs to rally back to his side? Share your thoughts belows.
