Paul Abrahamian revealed to Feedsters his plans for an ideal Final 3 during a camtalk session on Sunday. He knows who he wants to be sitting with at the end of the season and is feeling good that he can get there. Not long after we got to hear from Christmas on her own plans.
We’ve been watching as Paul whittles away at the competition while directing the majority along the path that’s going to work out best for him. Now we’ve got more insight to just who he wants with him at the end and it’s making clear who will need to go before then.
He’s running through his approach this season, which he calls more calculated this time around than how he played fast and loose last season. This time around he’s trying to be the third person in each of the other couples and thinks he’s got all the couples feeling like he’s a critical ally.
So which of the couples does he want to work with until the end? At 12:09/12:10 Paul is explaining that while Alex and Jason are very strong he really wants to get to the end with Josh and Christmas, the people he cares most about, says Paul.
Definitely some advantages here with those two. Christmas’s physical limitations in the endurance comp will likely mean she still can’t compete at that stage of the season. Then Paul also expects he can beat Josh in an endurance comp as well.
Looking ahead with Josh, remember how Paul has pushed Josh to do a lot of his bad-behavior bidding? Well that’s likely going to make sure any Jurors aren’t happy with Josh on a personal level so if Paul is F2 with him he’s got an easier path to the win.
Paul says he will not make the same mistake as last year, that critical choice between James and Nicole that led to his loss. He’s going to have to make sure then that no one else gets in control in those last rounds to redirect the path he’s planning.
Just a few nights ago Paul, Christmas, and Josh sat in the HoH room and agreed on their F3 status so this supports that and suggests Paul was likely sincere there about these plans. But was he alone?
Yesterday at 2:07 PM BBT Christmas Abbott is alone in the kitchen, reviewing the Memory Wall, and talking out her plans. Sure enough, she sounds dedicated to this plan as well. She says she’s got to protect Paul and Josh so they can get to F3 then she’ll let the two guys “duke it out” with the expectation that the winner will drag her along to the end.
It’s an interesting scenario and a lucky chance for us to have heard from two thirds of this F3 agreement in the same day with some camtalking. Josh has had plenty of other camtalk sessions and while he didn’t mention this deal specifically, he has spoken well of Paul and Christmas, so I’d guess he’s committed to it as well.
F3 plans are hard to keep, especially with a month left to go and a lot of HGs in the way, but it’s not impossible, especially with the way this season has been going. What do you think of their strategy? Is Paul, Christmas, or Josh making a mistake in this strategy or is it a smart approach for their chances to win? Share your thoughts below
