  1. LMAOOOOO!!!!! Da’vonne is the best. I do hope Victor or Da comes back and wins HOH.
    Paulie wanted to crawl under a rock when he got to Jury house.

  2. This is rigged for sure. Both of the beautiful black sistas, Day and Z just fell off at the exact same time.

      • It happened. Both of the black people fell off the same time. This show is rigged against black people. This show is racist. That’s why no black person has ever won.

      • I’m more inclined to think it’s because they cast the stereotypical “ghetto” woman. If they picked someone who actually played the game instead of failing competition after competition and focusing on creating more drama than anything else, they would stand a real chance.
        Think about it. Day won nothing, neither did Z. Z cried over Paulie the entire time she was in the house while Day just went around lying. They were simply bad at the game lol.

      • my point in a nutshell, the guy brought up their race to begin with…but it’s not their race that’s the factor it’s just that they are horrible players LOL

      • it’s baffling when mutt scented trash like you can call black women ghetto. The absolute nerve. Paulie behaves like a white trash hoodrat. Michelle comes in second.

      • And that has nothing to do with their race or being ghetto they just suck at comps and messed up there own social games. Just like Tiff and Meech cried all of the time and michelle sucks in comps as well as well as all of the other girls who were in bthe house. And we haven’t seen a woman win white or black since Rachel so boom!!!

      • Lying is part of the big brother game. Da was playing a good game until she went gung ho on getting Frank and Tiffany out. Those two blew up her game when they teamed up. I don’t mind the “ghetto” black women. I love Da’s sass. She cracks me up every time she opens her mouth, and she would’ve won the watch your dubstep comp but she wanted to be a woman of her word and throw it to James like she said she would. I do agree with you on Z though.

      • The only reason no black person has ever won is because the idiot producers at CBS hadn’t come up with the idea of a jury house back in season 3 so the entire jury got to go home and watch Danielle make fun of them in the diary room.

        Also when there’s like 1 black houseguest per season, it’s not that statistically likely for the winner to be black…

      • Look here Hillary… Jun won season 4 and she was Asian. Then hop a long Eddie won the 1st season. The drug runner Adam won season 9. And isn’t Andy, the winner of season 16(?), a ‘Mo? So much for your racist/minority/disability & criminal conspiracies against CBS.They definitely aren’t owned by the Republican Party. Now go read your emails

      • So funny when your person does not win the first reply is the show is rigged and as for you n the racist remark stop using racism as an excuse n empower yourself by ridding your ignorance!! I live in a world where I am not black enough I am not white enough I am not Hispanic so what I create my own destiny my own limits and I’m me!!! I was raised this way not to judge any person but to embrace and learn from their differences and to lift my head high and pray for the ignorant soul!!!

  3. Those three just gave it to Paulie in the jury house. I didn’t quite expect it like that…man was that good!

    • Didn’t think that Corey had a chance, he was so tall the board that he had to hold on to was so much lower for him than the others. Knew he wasn’t going to be able to hold on too long.

  4. What do you guys think of this twist: The BB House Flip, where the
    people in the jury house trade places with the people in the BB house,
    saving viewers from having to watch the trainwreck games of Corey,
    Nicole, Michelle, etc. any longer.

    • I’d rather watch Corey Nicole than the Jury Crybabies. I me, I used to like Brigette but she was sucha crybaby there.

      • That’s correct. He would become the first houseguest to be evicted 3 times in the same season and would become the 2nd houseguest after Janelle to be evicted 3 times overall.

      • Correction: He would become the 4th ever houseguest to be evicted 3 times. Kaysar, Brendon and Janelle have all been evicted 3 times

  5. Game is officially rigged for Victor to win it all…you shouldn’t have a shot at $500k if you can’t win it the first time. This show will be cancelled after next year. Good Job BB…you have dropped yourself to the level of terrible gameshows

      • Julie’s married to the head of CBS. If she doesn’t want to do this show anymore, it’ll get canned

      • It’s a show that’s reaching and reaching every season…it went from “expect the unexpected” to “we’ll create twists and comps topics who we want”…

      • Ok…then ?bye Felicia. ?

        You don’t have to be here, trashing the show for those of us who like it. You do know how that works, right?

    • Um, how was this rigged for Vic? The people who do well at this comp are usually the physical opposite of Victor. The odds were actually against him if you think about it.

    • If it was rigged for Victor, why would they let him get evicted twice? Thats like saying God rigged 50 Cent to live after he got shot 9 times, because other people die after only getting shot once.

    • You arer nuts. Look at the comp, think hard. It’s rigged for James or nicole. Vic winning would actually save this season

      • No doubt. I have seen and read enough this season to believe that.
        Then to give a comp that the chipmunk and chipette can win.

  6. Lol, James is now saying that there will be another DE. Now he realizes that there will be after he was so adamant no Jury member back in the house, no more DE. Goofball.

  7. Based on my math, if history tells us anything, the last juror comes on finale night and Julie didn’t announce double eviction next week so I’m guessing it happens on 9/8.This would be a good week to get HOH, its next week’s HOH thats tricky.

      • I’m a fan of Victor and Paul. Game wise, they needed to win this week. I guess it’s OK to win next week but if there’s a DE, that leaves you in a vulnerable position for that HOH since you can’t play.

  8. Now that Victor is back in the house,how long until he can eat? Hope the HG’s didn’t get the house too dirty while he was gone ;))

    • Poor guy, just when he had it looking really good .. hopefully they did not have enough time to trash it.

  9. I’m surprised that the water cannons shooting Nicole and James don’t suddenly quit working!

  10. Are Paulie, Day, Z, Bridgette still on the side … or have they been banished back to the Jury House?? Assume they would have had to leave and not be able to speak with the current HGs??

  11. BB News:The girls are back in the jury house, Paulie in a straight jacket repeating over and over, but I was bread for this, just kidding

      • Paulie’s arrogance is 24/7 nonstop. He said he wished he could have some time to tell Z what he was feeling inside, but that he just had to respect that she does not want to talk right now. THAT comment was strictly for the camera shot and typical of what I call “Paulie wanna cracker” talk … he mimics what a normal, feeling, empathetic human being would say when he wants to appear to look like one for whatever ego-driven reason.

  12. As much as I’ve been disappointed with Nicole this season… I’m going to have to give the gal some credit. This performance reminds me of her first season. That being said… Come on Paul!

    • Yes. I hope Nicole wins HOH so that, she and Corey are safe this week. They need to put Paul and Victor back in the hot seats and try and take one of them out again! This time it will stick!

      • We don’t need another repeat week which we got. That was a very boring week. Just like the remainder of the season will be. Production messed this game up completely.

      • Yep, Paul, Vic on the block.
        Another snooze fest listening to these boring showmances.
        BBAD over for me now.

      • It is not boring. Evicting Victor was a big move. The only big move other than the Paulie eviction! For the first time, other house guests like James and Natalie are playing to win that $500,000. Before that, you only had Paulie and Paul playing before Paulie’s eviction! It would have been utterly boring if Victor and Paul got their wish and managed to evict Nicole and Corey, then, they would evict one by one James,
        Natalie and Michelle and end up in Final 2! Zzzzzzzzzzzz. Now, that would have been a snoozefest. Now, we get big moves. Evict Victor or Paul then, evict who is left in the house of the big threats. Then, it will be Michelle, James, Natalie, Nicole and Corey going after each other!

    • Apparently it doesn’t make much dif which one since James and Nic seem to have some BB deal in the background. Darn.

  13. Well that’s it. Paul and Victor will be nominated again. Boring, boring, boring players will go to the end. What a horrible season. That’s it for me.

    • James apparently just bragged to everyone that this would be his 4th wall win. Well, there goes CBS’s attempt to say it wasn’t planned for him to win.

    • Completely agree. I wanted Paul or Victor to win this HOH! Exact repeat of the week. They’ll be on the block and whoever doesn’t get veto goes home. Paul goes before Vic if neither have the veto.

  14. victor fought his way in 3 times…how can it be between nicole on summer camp and james i got a buffalo nickle….

  15. LOL!! The Big Brother Network twitter page just said “Well, maybe if James offered Nicole another $10,000

    • Like you can enforce that promise? Yauman on Survivor gave up a truck he won in an immunity challenge to Dreamz in exchange for the immunity necklace if Dreamz won it! He reneged on the promise and evicted Yauman and kept the truck! Empty talk does not mean squat! Janelle promised her diamond ring in her season with Boogie and Frankie. Do not remember who she promised her support. She should have taken her ring for insurance. Janelle did not honor her promise as well!

  16. Something that always confused me, does the person who wins veto and is not on the block safe as well? As in they can’t be the re-nom

  17. Anyone who even entertains the thought of making a deal with James during an endurance comp DESERVES to be done dirty by him at this point.

  18. so they all dropped off the same order they went to jury’s house for all the conspiracy people saying is rigged just saying

    • There’s no use in arguing with the conspiracy theorists. Any time something doesn’t go their way, they cry wolf.

  19. No matter how much I like Victor, I can’t root for someone to win who has been evicted twice… America’s Favorite Player, sure, but not the winner of Big Brother 19.

    • i kind of agree getting voted out twice isn’t a small thing but fighting your way back in is pretty impressive, he deserves it more than the summer camper and her fellow cheater

      • I think so, too, and he has really played hard in the house as far as his social game goes, too – he was able to recognize he needed to improve that. Says a lot for someone to have some real insight in spite of being contained in a house like that and surrounded by, well, you know.

      • I love the guy, but you don’t get evicted twice in one season if you have a great social game. He 100% deserves America’s Favorite, though.

      • Corey hasn’t been evicted, are you saying that he has a great social game? There are many reasons people get evicted, social game is only one of them.

      • People need to remember his first eviction was a blindside by that eight man aliance. All newbies were being targeted.

  20. If anything this should clearly tell James that Nichole dosen’t trust him and vise versa, or else both of them would have dropped after Paul dropped. YOU THINK???????????

    • Can you really blame someone for not trusting James during an endurance competition? He’s blatantly gone back on a deal both of his seasons.

      • I certainly don’t blame her, and this is another welcome sign that there is still a semblance of the competitor inside her (that we last saw on her first season).

    • James has been wishy washy and who knows can switch back to Paul and Victor and Nicole and Corey are screwed! You need the HOH for insurance that there are no blindsides! Bridgette trusted James and he put Bridgette and Frank on the block! I hope Nicole wins this HOH to be safe then, put up Victor and Paul!

  21. Paul and Vic should be getting into Michelle’s head while all this is going on. If she really is a super fan, she cannot possibly be happy with 5th place. I think Victor could get her on board possibly. I’m not saying its enough to keep both Paul and Vic in the game this week, but its probably their best shot.

    • But they better check in with her every hour on the hour and for sure right before a vote because she can be swayed by the slightest breeze.

    • Would you want to get into Michelle’s head…lol. michelle is a 2 to 3 seasons of BB fan if she’s even watched that much of BB. On some of the BBAD shows Michelle have been asked question about BB comps and what not, and she was unable to answer a lot of those questions. Michelle is such a spazz…

    • For a so called Super fan, Michelle has done nothing in this game. She wasted her VETO by not saving Frank. It may have changed this game quite a bit! Maybe, that is her strategy to get to the Final 2? She might succeed to a point if say, James and Natalie were in Final 2 or James, Nicole were in Final 2. When it is down to 3, the winner of the 3 sets of HOH will take Michelle if they are smart because she has done nothing!

  22. So can Victor count his beating out the other jurors as a comp win? He’s said he wants to get the record of comp wins. How many has he won and is the record 7?

    • He’s a beast, no doubt, but in order to compare him to the other greats we need to only count HoH and PoV wins, right? Including his battle back wins and Road kill results aren’t exactly fair.

    • I would say yes. So 5 comps to return to house + 5 others makes it 10. He wanted to get to double digits.

  23. I am a Big brother fan for years and casually check out this site. I was surprised in the official tweets they are dissing this as rigged and what a shocker. I always laugh at the rigging comments from the commenters… I mean why do you watch then… but the official tweets for this site ?

    • Just because it didn’t go the way you wanted it to go, it doesn’t mean it was rigged. Stop.

      How can you even rig something where all you do is literally stand?

      • Could you explain to me how production would go about knocking down select houseguests while millions of people are watching the competition live on screen?

      • No. You said Nicole and James were the last two in the HoH competition because it was rigged. You said production “pushed them”. Explain to me how production managed to get certain people to fall and not others in front of millions of live viewers.

      • No. You said production “pushed them”. Explain to me how production pushed specific people off the platform in front of millions of live viewers.

      • Oooohh, you mean production ‘pushed them’ to go in certain directions while in the diary room. I thought you meant production literally pushed certain people off the platform during this HoH competition.

        My bad! I’m sure you can see why I was confused.

      • Agreed, agreed, agreed.

        Anyone else notice that Paulie was so drenched, it looked like he’d just rolled through a full service car wash whenever he got sprayed, but Nicole’s spot was somehow strategically placed gently in between the sprayers??

        It seemed like all she got was a fine mist coming off the 2 sprayers to the sides of her, but she never got a full on face hosing like Paulie, as well as some of the others did. Paulie looked as if he’d just dived into a pool each time he was sprayed & Nicole’s mysteriously never sprayed her hard in the face like his did. Hmph.

      • I would say this comp was more designed for a smaller person.
        Say like a chipmunk and his sidekick.

      • They always do this comp for the jury buyback. No one wants to watch a carnival game or some weird furniture trivia determine who wins their way back into the house. We want to see the jury members dig deep for their spot and earn it.

      • DR/production has made sure that some of these HGs haven’t had to “dig deep” at all. They have given reason after reason for many people to question the legitimacy of this game. You constantly try to make people feel stupid for doing so. How are the spots on the wall selected? Are they assigned? If so, that is questionable. Many things are manipulated. I can’t figure out if you are ignorant or are a plant for CBS. One thing for sure; most of the time you are very arrogant.

      • And might I add to the incredibly intelligent and perceptive KSJB (I’m not speaking for her, BTW–just adding MY two cents), it sucks for the many viewers who actually love this show…and prefer to think that it doesn’t resort to ‘suggestions’ or ‘incentives’ or WHATEVER. Call me naive, but I love this show and I feel really sickened to think that I’ve invested YEARS of my life watching bulls***.

      • KSJB, why do you keep going out of your way to try and put me down? I’ve done nothing to you to deserve it. Nothing in the comment I made that you replied to was arrogant, and it certainly didn’t warrant you attacking my character. I was simply sharing my opinion. Just like everyone else on here. That’s what this site is for.

        Let’s get one thing out of the way first. Just because I disagree with someone doesn’t mean I’m trying to make them feel stupid, and it doesn’t mean I’m arrogant. It means I’m discussing Big Brother. And this is the appropriate place to discuss Big Brother.

        Man, that really makes me sad. Most, if not all the people I converse with on here are happy to discuss Big Brother with me, even if we disagree. You, however, don’t seem to be able to handle it.

        It’s perfectly okay to disagree with people!

        This is the second time I’ve let you in on the fact that you don’t have to read my posts, yet you continue to do so and become excessively triggered by doing so.

        I haven’t once gone for personal blows with people on here. I don’t do that. You, however, have gone out of your way to attack me twice now this week. I just don’t get it. I’ve done nothing to you. Is it seriously just because I’ve disagreed with you?

        You seem to want everything you say to become law, with no room for interpretation or discussion. I wish you luck on that. But just know that just because I may disagree with you on something as trivial as this summer game show, that doesn’t mean I’m being mean. You’re the one who gets mean, and you go out of your way to do so. Case in point? ^

        So I ask again, why do you keep picking on me?

      • As for your fears about production, would you please explain where you’re going with this theory?

        “How are the spots on the wall selected?” I’m trying to understand how some people standing on the same wall would have an advantage over others. That’s pretty much one of the fairest premises I could think of.

      • It is called creative license! The producers have the right to do anything they pleased because it is a show! Try looking up Dave Hester vs A & E, if you are Storage Wars fan. Dave Hester alleged that producers of the show planted expensive watches, gold, silver, monies in the lockers. He is probably right but, the judge sided with the producers, A & E.
        So, that actual court case is a precedent which I am sure Big Brother is aware of as well!
        In the Bachelorette, you have a guy Chad punch a door with his fist, tear the shirt of another guy, Evan.
        Don’t you think it is scripted? Of course it is!
        The same way Frank’s spanking Davonne’s butt, saying outrageous things, maybe, some of the things Paulie said, Bridgette talking about shaving Michelle’s eyebrows, James and Nicole talking about
        collusion and sharing prices? You think it is all real? LOL

      • That said, Big Brother does not choose the actual winner because this is still a contest of sorts and they can be prosecuted for fraud! They may make suggestions in the DR to the house guests and say things to steer them, a certain way. Offer inducements and twists to change the dynamics of the game and add to the drama. It is still a SHOW people. Let us not forget that! This thing is NOT REAL even if you call it reality TV!

    • True, or more likely… James actually had an intelligent thought for a second. Something along the lines of, “The longer I hang on, the less she’s going to trust me.”

      That could be giving him too much credit though.

      • Personally I think he was struggling on this one. His arms were shaking badly. Nicole looked strong. I think he did it to save face and look like a gentleman.

  24. Come on Nicole… You have one shot to redeem yourself to everyone who liked you in your first season. Nominate James!

      • They sure did seem reluctant to let each other win HOH though. You’re probably right, but I am holding out hope.

      • Everyone makes final deals they don’t always go through. Remember everyone lies in this game to some degree.

    • Nonsense. That would be stupid and as someone who likes her I would lsoe respect for such a dumb game move.

    • You’re giving her too much credit. This is the same person who’d rather cuddle with Corey instead of planning game.

      • This time, Nicole has a chance to get further in the game! She is not dumb too like some say. In real life, she is a nurse!
        Bridgette too is a nurse. Too bad, she got evicted too early.

      • I don’t think occupation means squat. Danielle Murphree was a nurse and she was dumb as rocks. Plus she also had a boy toy to flirt with. Coincidence?

    • No. That would be dumb. If she is trying to win that $500,000, you evict the strongest competitors first, meaning Victor and Paul. You do not want to be playing against those two guys in HOH and VETO! How many have those two guys won? Nicole and Corey has a better chance of getting to Final 2 against James, Natalie and Michelle. For those 5 people, you want both Victor and Paul evicted, one after the other! Then, it is everyone for themselves right after that!

  25. Let’s look on the bright side: Victor is back in the game.

    But this ACP isn’t that important.

    B/c of the deal she made with James, she will most likely put up Michelle and poor Vic again.

  26. well now she can sleep until nominations, dr calls and veto and really enjoy her summer at camp i guess

  27. If there’s any justice in the world, James will get put on the block and evicted this week. It’s about time someone gave him a taste of his own medicine when it comes to endurance comp deals.

    P.S. I know it won’t happen, but I can dream, can’t I?

  28. Loved the outcome of this comp!!!! Nic wins it against James. Her first comp win of the season!!! Now I just hope she puts up Michelle and Nat, but probably will put up Michelle and Paul or Vic.

    • Well, she won’t put up Corey, and probably wouldn’t have the nerve to put up Natalie, so that leaves Victor and Paul, or maybe Paul and Michelle. We know there’s no love lost between Nicole and Michelle.

      • If you put up Paul you have to put up Vic. If Vic wins veto he pulls off Paul and they are both safe. Same as this past week. Surely they don’t still think Paul and Vic are still “fighting”?

  29. These people are so dumb for not voting out Corey. Now Corey and Ratcole are safe another week. If they had evicted Corey, he would be gone forever.

  30. When you get evicted. You should stay gone. So I hope Vic and Paul go on the block again, or at least back door Vic… And stay gone foreal this dang time.

    • I was rooting for Victor after he came back the first time because he really cleaned up his game, but I just can’t look past getting evicted twice… No matter what you say about the other houseguests, they at least didn’t get themselves evicted, much less twice.

    • Agree with you 100% Wasted this week for nothing! Evicting Victor was a big move! Natalie’s HOH was waste as a result. In any case, I hope Paul is evicted this time out! If not, then, Victor again!

  31. Kick James out. He obviously made a deal with Nicole before the show, he offered bribes, and now just hands Nicole HOH. How obvious can the cheaters be?

  32. I think Michelle will be Nicole’s target…I really hope she doesn’t let James pick the noms..how dumb that would be..deal or no deal…The only thing I am not looking forward to is the undercover sex that we will have to endure all week!

  33. Well Vic is pretty much one of the strongest players in this game. Allow me to put the guy from Hall of Shame to Hall of Fame. Him and Paul both. And Let me take James and Nicole out of the Hall of Fame to the Hall of Shame.

    Can somebody help me with these pictures?

  34. This show is racist, and rigged against black people. Both of the sistas were pushed off, and they fell 5 mins into it. Racism.

  35. I’m hoping next season that the jury buy-back competition is the old-school “button pushing” comp. Where you literally keep your hand on the button and if you want it bad enough, you win. Athletic people have a clear advantage in the one from tonight.

  36. James just whimped out by giving Nicole the HOH. Her excuse was she needed to hear from her family. Hope her family doesn’t watch the live feeds. Would be funny if James and Natalie went up on the block but Paul and Vic will go up.

  37. So…Paulie is pretty much the same ole jackass he was when he left the house. I thought maybe he may have been humbled just a bit..but..no…”being in the jury house with three catty women.” What a jerk this guy is..I hope he is never invited back on this show.

  38. Is it still a showmance when they call each other babe . Just wondering…

    I trust you babe – Natalie to James
    She starting to steal my technique – James talking about Nicole to Natalie

  39. Put Vic in the BB HOF…he is the ultimate comp beast! I hope Nicole betrays James and put him and Natalie OTB. It’ll create some good drama, give him a taste of his own medicine, and it’ll teach him a lesson on trusting non-trustworthy people.

    • She’s already said she’s putting up Michelle and Victor. The more interesting nom will be who goes up when Victor comes down during the Veto competition.

      • Come on this is Nicole we’re talking about. She’s always flip flopping. Plus neither showmances completely trust the other so it is possible for her to put them up.

  40. Even though I wanted someone else to return, I am very impressed. If he makes it to the end somehow he can say well I battled back twice what did you do?

    Still not sure how I feel about this so late in the comp. Although for all who say it’s unfair I mean he did win after being a have not when the jurors were all rested and well fed (if you like tofu).


    We got Vic back in the game. ???

    He’s a shoe in for ACP ??
    (if history repeats itself, he can use the $5k to bribe James over a vote.)

    Paul has his alliance with Nicole/Corey in the interim.

    Seems like Meech is Nicole’s target for this week.

    So we are all happy for the most part!

    • I guess only time will tell. Lord knows all the conspiracy theories with Nicole and James this week have been…lively. If Nicole is protecting him it would be in her best interests to go for Paul/Vic like Natalie did last week.
      I mean it would be hilarious to see her put Natalie on the block and have her get voted out, but I doubt it would happen.

      • It’s no conspiracy It has been PROVEN. Time stamps AND the rules are both posted and available. Right here on BBN. Go look. There is an entire thread about it.

  42. I find it ironic that James is ranting about people returning to the game. Like dude you’re a returnee….from another season at that!

  43. Even though the girls in jury were catty it was so funny. Z finally stood up for herself. The “short man syndrome” comment was hilarious. He thinks he’s all that and he’s stuck in the jury with women who know he’s not. Will they all wind up friends, I dunno.

  44. Do any BB Historians here know what the next POV comp might be? We know Victor’s great with physical comps but if it’s a mental one how do we expect he’ll do there? If he does get nommed this week I hope he’s up against Michelle (as someone has mentioned) and destroys her in the POV. But do we know what the odds are of it being a mental challenge?

      • I think the slip & slide is typically an HoH comp, but I could be wrong. I’m feeling a face morph Veto this week, myself. ;)

      • I know, but this season hasn’t been as predictable when it comes to comps as in previous seasons, so who knows? haha I wouldn’t mind the face morph one at all!

      • Thanks! I assume so too but we haven’t seen him excel in a mental challenge yet, have we? (Apologies if so and I’ve just forgotten.)

      • Don’t apologize….. All good! (You Canadian? Cuz we are always saying sorry…. Lol)

        I think there was a mental comp he did well at and won but can’t remember. He did get 19 of the rain storm things….total to get was 21…. Michelle got 20…. So there’s some mental competition there.
        I think! Lol

      • Wow. Goes to show how short term my memory is. It was just a recent win and I think he actually got 21 to win, didn’t he? You’re right! He DOES have a brain. Thanks for the reminder!

  45. For those wondering why Zakiyah and D’Avonne jumped so early — it’s because they rather enjoy the next few weeks in the posh jury house then endure drama in the house.

    They still get paid the same. They knew their chances of winning the $500k/$50k was slim – so why not keep their weekly stipend and live the life @ jury house.

  46. Does anyone else think they had an awful lot of physical comps this year? Give me a mental comp so I don’t have to hear whining.
    I still wanna know what Corey said to make fans so mad. No one ever told me.

    • He laughed over what Paulie said to Natalie and Bridgette, as did Nicole too, but it was Corey who thought it was funny until James told them both he didn’t find it a bit funny whatsoever. Pair that with what Corey said about almost setting a goat on fire at a frat party and that there alone was reason enough to make fans mad, not to mention the ASPCA and Peta.

      • there are just no words…luckily it is easy to pretend corey is already gone because all he does is…well we all know what he does all day…

      • If only Nic knew that Paul wanted to vote her and Corey out. She’ll be regretting it later by not putting him up. That much I know!

      • She didn’t like him kissing other girls all the time…don’t think he actually fooled around with them. They’re still friends, though.

      • Ahahaha. I would find it very difficult having an intelligent conversation with Corey. He has difficulty forming complete sentences a lot too! hahaha

      • Last night they talked about someone thought Nicole was cuter than Corey and he did NOT like it one bit. It cracked me up that he had to be the prettiest girl in the room. TeeHee

      • I remember once Nic was in room but under covers and laughed about it once Nat left the room. Corey loved Paulie’s nasty comments. Did you see how they reacted when they came in for the comp last night? SMH

      • And there were what some thought were homophobic comments in the house and pulled from his twitter acct. he also told a story about a girl giving him a BJ and laughed about being on the phone to order UBER during the act. Goat story is the worst for me bc he was there and did nothing to stop it and thinks the story is FUNNY??

        Corey lays in bed all day with Nic too. He did do dishes last night. That is new.

      • Sorry but James is such as wimp. He plays this game out of fear. He said all week he was going to win HoH then steps down to give it to Nicole.

      • I’m quite disappointed in James this season than last. Friendship is really all he was after it seems. Geesh!

    • They did fall for it when Nicole ran to them and said she was with them. I think if Paul got to the end against a lot of them he could win over James.

    • I think she’s convinced (by Paul) that this next care package is a HoH takeover so she’s not showing her cards yet.

    • Did she say she’d replace Vic with James if he comes down?
      If michelle gets veto – don’t laugh she’s won one before – I hope they vote out Victor…. He’s gotta go again FOR GOOD….
      They HAVE to recognize he’s a HUGE threat!


    He can BRIBE Nicole to NOT put up Paul and then he can WIN VETO and then they are then BOTH safe for the week AND have two votes :)

    P.S. Coincidence that James and Nicole, in their own little safe corner with hardly any water spray hitting them, were the “final 2” in the comp?

      • I’m not so sure she would. The 10k from James might mean more to her, although she might be smart enough to realize your word means nothing in the BB house whereas the bribe from Vic would be tangible.
        Although hoping Nicole would be smart is asking for a lot.

    • Depends on when the bribe can be played, though, right? Since we don’t get to start voting until 3:00 a.m. ET, when will it be executed?

      • It can be used from the moment it arrives at BB house up until the next eviction. So there is an entire week to work on it.

      • I just found out voting only lasts a day instead of a week…so guess it will be executed before eviction night.

      • That is why we need to play smart. Victor NEEDS it since he is OTB. He can bribe to keep Paul safe and win veto easily against these tards.

      • Why would you want to keep the 2 strongest players in the house?
        Many of the ppl on this site claim certain ppl haven’t been playing the game.
        IMO You don’t have to be loud & obnoxious to play the game. Some may prefer to be a bit more quiet but sneaky. Like Nicole. Or even James.
        I see them both playing good games.
        Getting into a showmance so not to be singled out.
        Not be a strong competitor so no threat of physical, mental Strength.
        Play a so so social game.
        Lie & lie & lie some more….. Like the rest of everyone else but don’t get caught & if you do deny deny deny!

        It takes all kinds of kinds!

      • I find these casts a little mindful on who gets ACP and why, especially James…If Vic gets it, I wanna see their reactions and what they had to say.

      • Do they HAVE to honestly take the bribe or can they lie and sacrifice the money? Meaning: If Player 1 gets the bribe gift and offers Player 2 the money to vote against Player 3, can Player 2 say: “Okay! Sure!” but then vote against Player 3? Or am I completely off base? (Apologies if so!)

      • We have no idea…it can’t involve money though, so that’s why I’m wondering how this will work.

      • I think it does involve money and BB can do anything they want. That’s what their contracts say.

      • It can involve money if BB is aware of it as part of the game and they can let the IRS know for tax purposes. It seems like off the book deals and money/gifts that are NOT part of the official game might be the problem???? That was my thinking at least.

      • This Canuck doesn’t know if the player pats the IRS and taxes or BB?
        Anyone know? Cuz if so does anyone know the percentage they get to keep?
        Kind of not really worth 1/2 the 5k if that is approx?

      • It will vary based on what state they live in and what tax bracket they will fall into. I do not know if BB takes ie 20% in advance. One winner on Survivor went to jail for not paying taxes on his $1M if my memory is accurate.

        CBS can get fined for not sending correct dollar amt on winnings on the forms to be used to file taxes..

        Players have to pay taxes on prizes such as trips, tvs, too

      • Your kiddin? They have to pay taxes on prizes? That’s bunk!

        I think the nude dude (1st winner) didn’t pay & went to jail….. Can’t remember his name but man was he obnoxious! Hmmmm so is Paul! Lol

      • I worked at a company and every prize trip or prize money was taxed. Ie anything over $25. Lol. Crazy huh?

        Richard Hatch – googled it.

      • Ya that’s who… Weird dude!

        Anything over $25 seriously? Omg talk about money grabbers!

        I’ve won pull tabs just across the line & didn’t pay! Come & get me IRS! Heh heh!

      • The winner gets $5K to bribe one Houseguest. Bribes may influence voting, competitions, vetoes or nominations. The bribe can only be given to one HG, for one action, within the week leading up to the next eviction.

        Not 100% sure, sorry. My take is, whatever the deal is, it has to be fulfilled. but how do you execute this without being shady? Quietly, between the two of you?..Every one knows, you have the money to bribe.

      • EXACTLY! That’s why I wonder about the specifics. Does Player 1 Give Player 2 a token (worth $5k) to vote against Player 3 with the token ONLY redeemable if they did what they said or can they SAY they will and not? (As a game move.)

        I’m sure they’ll (BB Prods.) have it explained to us.

      • The $5K is a gift from us (voters) Just like any ACP we gave the HG. The recipient “may” use the money to influence/bribe a Hg. I would assume if there are no takers, they get to keep the money. That’s only fair. There has to be a “meeting of the mind/a contract” between the two for the bribe to take place.

      • Kind of late in the game to hide from the bribe esp since the ACP reads the contents of the package…..

        No where to hide now!

      • I know..This last ACP is ridiculous. It does make them think we (fans) are trying to save the recipient though. Not sure if that’s gonna make any difference.

  48. Paul is smart! When Nicole puts Victor and Michelle on the block it will cause Jatalie to lose their trust with them. It would also confirm their suspicions of Paul working with Nicorey. Jatalie would then beccome upset with Nicorey and focus more on them. In retaliation, Nicorey would have to worry about Jatalie coming for them. Paul will end up flying under the radar again…lol

    • Let’s hope not! Please can someone please get Paul out of that house?

      I’m tired of ‘friendship!’ I think he’s got a warehouse full of clothing with ‘friendship,’ written all over them. I hope it’s a bust!

      Plus I’m also tired of him hamming it up, that annoying voice (similar to Peter Brown’s screech) & trying to be cool with that stupid duck. How old did they say he was? Omg! Paul, my boy, grow the ummm up!

  49. Nicole needs to go. So tired of her whiny voice. Glad Victor is back but James should have gone down earlier if he didn’t want HOH

  50. I think there should have been one last twist. Julie should have announced that James & Nicole are being swapped into the jury house and the last 3 jurors standing be returning to the game. over the whole $10k safety deal those two made.

  51. I hate endurance comps like those. It pretty much favor players that are short. If it was balanced to each player specifically than you can determine which player is better at endurance. The comp was straight up Forearm strength. The taller you are, the more strength and effort you have to put out just to hold on. Victor would’ve easily won if his station was made for his height.

    • Yeah Corey was bent over just to hold the bar which was the same height for everyone. I respect Victor’s comp skills but I think that BB is definitely setting things up for a particular ending and the way this comp was set up, I think you are right about certain advantages depending on your body type.

      • I thought they usually measure things out for a fair advantage? I guess that sucks for some of them…..

      • Even Survivor has things set up fair. Will have different heights set for different comps for the short and tall people. They should have survivor production work on BB.

      • On BBAD Cory mentioned he has had 3 prior surgeries on his elbow & didn’t want a 4th…… owwwiiieee! !

    • Not only that, they should all stand. There should be no sitting down. What the hell was that all about. Too much leniency where james and Nicole come in. Bad production.

  52. Vote ACP to be given to Victor. I’m sure he’ll bribe Nic into taking him off the block and put up James instead…maybe? One can dream!

    • This close to the end its not going to be easy to find anyone willing to take 5K to throw away their game. After all, they are being paid every week just to be there.

      • HG mentioned $1k per week in jury b4 production shut it down. Vets get bonus to go into house and more if they go to jury. Vets could get more weekly stipend in jury.

        They also have hotel stays, food, flights to the show etc. The IRS always gets their money :)

  53. Well, It was nice watching you on TV “Paul”. See ya later because I don’t think you would win back to back vetos.

  54. Paul was entertaining last week when he did the Secret Service bit but I’m over his TV gig. Just stop talking already!

  55. I’m a little disappointed this article didn’t contain any of the same snark as this site’s twitter feed did about how obvious it was that production was trying to help James with this choice of competition – the same exact competition that favors the short over the tall, and that James has won three (now) four times already.

    • I can’t stand James, but they do this competition every single season, especially for the jury buyback. Competitions are always going to favor one bodytype/braintype over another. If you’re calling for production to intentionally switch out the competition this week for another because it favors one body type, then you’re essentially asking them to favor another instead. Are you asking them to scrap the endurance competition altogether? The endurance comp has always been a thing, and it always will be. The producers can’t switch the competitions out based on who you personally want out of the house.

      No one wants to watch the Jury Buyback be decided by a carnival game or some weird house furniture trivia. They want to see who can dig deepest to earn their spot back in the house. This competition was about the jury buyback, not intentionally helping James.

      P.S. “that James has won three (now) four times” James didn’t even win tonight, even though you say he did.

      P.P.S. I still want James out.

  56. Darn. I was holding out my last shreds of my support and like I had for James, but to come here and find out he let Nicole have the HOH is so disappointing. I think I finally am giving up on him. Who throws HOH this late in the game and knows there is another ACP coming. James, just walk to the jury house.

  57. Nicole = Notcool
    Corey = Borey
    James = Shames on you for letting Notcool wear you down whining for her mommy. Yeh, you’re a very nice person, but you have a child to consider. Pathetic.

    • So does ‘Da and she dropped off for living in ‘luxury’ for a few weeks….. Where’s her consideration to her kid?

      Stop picking on James & how he parents….. You don’t know the arrangement plus I doubt very much he will be hurting financially after the show…… Let it go!

  58. I know it won’t happen but she should go back on her word like James did to Bridgette and Frank.

    • I’m curious as to why you like Corey more than the others. I haven’t seen him bring that much to the game to inspire me to like him at all.

      • For me personally I think that is game when you can sit back and not really have to do much cuz you’re not a target. He’s not as dumb as he’s being portrayed; in my opinion!
        The other 2 have their hands everywhere…. Always having to defend themselves & make up lies about others. Some may think that’s great game play…..
        I like the silent type just sitting back. James isn’t having to scramble that much either but he still recognizes he’s playing a game. Regardless of Nat.
        I do think Nic & James have a F2 deal that we all don’t know about.
        But I respect everyone’s opinion on this site cuz if there was no differences in opinion it would be very boring…..
        So bring on those opinions…. Let’s have a good conversation or friendly debate!

      • The franchise as a whole has been around for almost 20 years so going back to 1999-era BB could even be a twist in itself (and even then, twists were ripe for pickings).

      • A BB without twists would only be just like this:

        1) A dozen housemates tasked with a challenge every week in an effort to win the house luxury and comfort and avoid settling on staples.
        2) Housemates will nominate each other with reason in the comfort of the Diary Room, using a points system where they give a set of two and one points to their preferred noms.
        3) Nominees will face the public vote where the voting system will either be vote to evict or vote to save (other formats utilize a combined system to blur the lines of popularity and level the playing field).
        4) Housemates who either voluntarily self-evict or is forced evicted by BB can be replaced at any given time in the season by a replacement housemate.
        5) Housemates will have tasks that will push their buttons, create conflict amongst themselves, and face their own insecurities.
