The Big Brother Houseguests are ready to get this eviction over with now that the Veto Meeting is complete and the Backdoor just needs its target to walk on through. It might not go quite as expected though for most of the house thanks to a plan by Kevin and Paul.
Earlier this morning Paul and Kevin met privately in the HoH room. Paul told Kevin he had a plan for something that could help their position in the house. Flashback to 11:48 AM BBT 7/10 to watch their talk.
There will be just ten votes this week and Christmas has been talking things up that she expects it to be 9-1 against their big target Cody. If it doesn’t go that way then she’s going to start pointing fingers. You can see where this is going, right?
Paul asks Kevin, for this week’s vote when he goes in to the Diary Room to cast his against Ramses instead of against Cody. When Kevin asks why Paul explains it make the votes “come out weird and people are going to start wondering, ‘who the f**k did that?'” Paul believes it will start confusion and no one would suspect Kevin.
Kevin wants to know if anyone else knows Paul is asking him to pull this prank. Paul promises him he hasn’t told anyone and that’s the whole point. Kevin agrees, “no problem. You ain’t got to say no more. It’s a done deal.” Kevin says if Paul gives him his word then he’ll give Paul his and it’s done.
So this will be fun for us to see the votes come out as 8-1-1 on Thursday night. There will be some confusion for sure, but for Paul’s purposes this would be better if Ramses had a chance to vote.
We know Paul is pressed to get Ramses out as he doesn’t trust him, but with Ramses on the Block he can’t pin this vote on him. Instead he may be hoping to frame Jason for this one as he says that’s who could end up taking the heat.
Jump ahead to 3:46 PM BBT as Paul is alone again and doing his camtalking when he comes around to the hinky vote. Paul explains he’s asking Kevin to place this vote against Ramses, though he says Alex here, to frame Jason.
Paul mentions that rumor has it that Jason is trying to shore up favor with Cody in case he comes back through a possible Battle Back. This will support that and put Jason in a bad spot, if it works. I’m sure we can all imagine Paul jumping up and down pointing the finger at Jason while he knows it was Kevin.
What do you think of Paul’s idea here? Will anyone get suspicious or will the HGs just be satisfied to see Cody going out the door and ignore the hinky vote? We may not see just how effective it is until next week’s nominations come around and whether or not Jason finds himself up there.
