7:40 PM BBT – Tommy tells Nick that he trusts him but implies it’s Bella he and others don’t trust so much. Nick says he didn’t know Bella was spending so much time with Cliff (Tommy must have said Bella was getting awful close to Cliff). Nick says Bella is a recruit so she just doesn’t know this game. Analyse tells Nick she’s sorry and this is the first time she hasn’t told him what was going on.
7:44 PM BBT – Bella tells Jack that if she sees him talking to Cliff and Nicole she will assume he’s trying to get them on his side. Jack says that’s kind of threatening. Then she says and if he sees her talking to them then he can assume the same thing.
7:45 PM BBT – Nick tells Analyse, Holly, Christie and Tommy that he just wants them to trust him. He says they can tell him stuff and it doesn’t mean he’s going to tell Bella everything the say.
7:47 PM BBT – Bella tells Sam and Jack that this is the third time she’s been blindsided in the game and she’s tired of it. She says she’s upset but still wants to be in the nine.
7:49 PM BBT – Christie tells Nick that she just really needed Cliff to go because he was bad for her game and it doesn’t change anything between Nick and herself. Nick says he respects that.

8:03 PM BBT – Jackson says Bella and Nick are going on the block. He says he will be the one to draw the line in the sand if no one else will. Tommy says they all will do that. Jackson says if he wins HOH they go up and if one comes down Sam goes up. Jack, Tommy and Holly agree with that plan.
8:08 PM BBT – Jack is annoyed that everyone is babying Nick and Bella and acting like they’re all still together. He says he’s tired of being fake. Holly asks him if he knows what game he is playing.
8:10 PM BBT – Jessica is upset she wasn’t in on the vote. Tommy tells her it has nothing to do with her and that she should have been included.
8:13 PM BBT – Tommy apologizes to Cliff about the vote. Cliff says he gets it because he knows word got out that he was going after pairs. Cliff tells Tommy that if Nicole had gone home and he won HOH Kathryn and Jessica would have been his targets.
8:24 PM BBT – Nick tells Jack that he wants him to be able to trust him. He tells him he is his own player and he makes his own decisions, not Bella. Nick says he knows he needs to separate himself from Bella game wise.

8:29 PM BBT – Tommy tells Nicole that the plan to keep her was in motion all week and he wanted to tell her but just couldn’t. He says it just didn’t feel right for her to go down for something she didn’t even do. He tells her that she’ll be in the loop from now on out. She’s just grateful she’s still in the house.
8:31 PM BBT – Christie and Analyse trying to do some damage control with Cliff just in case he wins HOH. Cliff explains all the things he was thinking as far as people working together. He tells him he has no desire to target the couples. He said all that will do is get rid of one person and then seven others will come after him.
8:33 PM BBT – Christie says the only reason Cliff was even the target this week is because he’s the only one they heard mention their name. He says he understands.
9:01 PM BBT – Christie tells Bella that they knew Cliff was public enemy No. 1 and then Nick wins HOH and he’s making everyone vote Nicole. She said so that just wasn’t what anyone wanted. Bella says they’re just upset no one came up to them to try to switch the target. Bella says if they’re in an alliance that’s how it should have been. Christie says she has a right to be upset and she’d be upset to if she were in her position.
9:03 PM BBT – Bella tells Christie that that move wasn’t even smart gameplay. Christie says maybe it was bad gameplay. Bella seems to think there’s still an alliance.
