With the upcoming nomination ceremony, Tom held court in the HOH room talking to each houseguest one on one. Read on to find out what happened on the Celebrity Big Brother live feeds!

Celebrity Big Brother Live Feed Highlights – Tuesday, February 5, 2018:
10:13 AM BBT – The HGs are waking up.
10:14 AM BBT – Lolo tells Natalie that she needs Ricky and Natalie to play defense because Kandi wants to talk to Tom before noms.
10:31 AM BBT – Natalie and Lolo are talking about how Tom had a famous friend write him a letter. Natalie tells Lolo that she thinks he was still really sad because he thought the letter would be from his girlfriend.
10:55 AM BBT – Ricky and Lolo are talking and Lolo mentions how she wished she had a chance to talk to Tom last night. There were some things that she wanted to talk to him about how much he hurt her when everything went the way it did. She adds that she doesn’t want to critique him and really needs to work out how to say it.
11:00 AM BBT – Ricky tells Lolo that if she has the conversation with Tom that will keep Lolo and Natalie safe, but he will have to have a side conversation with him also. Lolo goes over how she is going to try and get their alliance back together or at least get it to the point where Tom won’t feel so threatened by them. She wants to point out that relying on Dina and Kandi to win and protect him, he is going to be in trouble.
12:00 PM BBT – Tom decides to start talking to everyone about the plans.
1:14 PM BBT – Tom tells Ricky that he thinks it would just look weird now if he doesn’t put him on the block.
1:15 PM BBT – Ricky tells Tom that it wouldn’t look weird because Ricky is part of the reason why Tom is still there. Tom asks exactly how that went down. Ricky says Tamar wanted Kato to stay so he talked to Lolo and Natalie about keeping Tom. Ricky says they even would have preferred to get rid of Kandi over Tom. He says if Kato won the veto Tom would still be here too. He said Kandi would have gone home.
1:17 PM BBT – Ricky says not nominating him would just be Tom returning the favor. Tom tells Ricky being on the block isn’t the end. Tom says there’s something about putting him on the block that they could use to their advantage. He says if people don’t know they have an agreement and he nominates him no one would suspect it.
1:18 PM BBT – Natalie tells Tamar that Tom isn’t going to put up Kandi or Dina. Natalie says Tom is Kandi’s No. 1 and they made a mistake keeping her. Tamar says if that’s true than that pisses her off. Natalie asks why they kept her then. Tamar said they kept her because “your girl” (Lolo) pops off every find minutes and has no self control. Natalie tells Tamar to stop saying that and Tamar says she won’t stop saying the because it’s true. She says they wouldn’t be in this position if Lolo didn’t pop off every five minutes.
1:19 PM BBT – Tamar says they need a plan now. Natalie says she’s over Kandi acting like she’s not playing. “The bitch is playing,” Natalie says. She says Kandi has been in Tom’s ear and there’s no way she’s in danger this round.
1:22 PM BBT – Kandi tells Tamar that he doesn’t want to go to Tamar like he did last time. She says he just wants Tamar to offer him safety. Tamar says she can’t give him that. Then she says she can tell Tom that but she won’t honor it. Tamar says they both need to get rid of him or he’ll win. Kandi said no one is going to vote for Tom at the end. Tamar said they will because Tom has played a good game.
1:24 PM BBT – Kandi says that Tamar saved her, not Lolo, Ricky or Natalie. She says she only needed Tamar’s vote so they can stop acting like they saved her.
1:26 PM BBT – Tamar asks if Kandi who Tom’s target is. She says Ricky. Tamar says that’s dumb and Kandi agrees. They both think Natalie should be the target. Kandi said he’s going to try to make a deal with Lolo to go up as a pawn with Natalie and then backdoor Ricky. Tamar says that’s stupid. Kandi said she told him she thinks Natalie should go.
1:27 PM BBT – Kandi says that Tom doesn’t want to control Tamar this week or threaten her. He just wants to ask for safety from her.
1:38 PM BBT – Tamar goes to talk to Tom. He says he’s pretty stressed because whatever he does this week effects what happens with him next week. He says he wants to have a confidential conversation with her. She agrees. He says he’d like to make an agreement where he won’t put her on the block if she won’t put him on the block. She agrees to not put him on the block.
1:40 PM BBT – Tom and Tamar discuss Lolo, Natalie and Ricky. She said that she knows they won’t take her to the end and if they did they’d have the votes to win.
1:41 PM BBT – Tom asks if she’d also vote in the direction he wants this week. She asks what direction he’s leaning. He says he’s not sure yet. Tamar says she just wants to think it through and if she was in power she would go after the two strongest players. Tom asks who Tamar thinks that is. She pivots to just going right for the target and not a backdoor plan because if one wins and takes the other off then he’d have to nominate herself, Kandi or Dina. He says that makes sense and he’s not planning on backdooring anyone.
1:47 PM BBT – It’s Lolo’s turn to talk to Tom. He tells her that he has a proposal for her and it’s not going to be easy for her to absorb. He says he wants to put her on the block but doesn’t want her to go home. He says he wants her to win the veto and use it on herself. He says she is not the target. She asks who the target is and he says it’s fluctuating right now. He says the target doesn’t matter though because if she agrees to the plan and doesn’t talk to anyone it will work. He says he wants to make sure she stays and in return she can not nominate him the next round if she’s HOH.
1:50 PM BBT – Lolo tells Tom that he hurt her during his last HOH. She said she’s a very loyal person and she thought they were going to the end together. She says that he said after Kato left he wanted to make amends and that would mean honoring their original alliance, not nominating them. She asks why he can’t just nominate Kandi and Dina since she didn’t have anything to do with breaking up their alliance. She tells him that fans like a comeback and like to see a player have a transformation. She thinks if he honors their original deal it will make great TV.
2:00 PM BBT – Lolo is still pushing for Tom to honor their original alliance. She says if he makes amends with everyone who he had originally aligned with then he makes the final 4. She says Kandi and Dina haven’t won anything and can’t get him to the end like they can.
2:09 PM BBT – In tears, Lolo says she’s trying to trust Tom but the past couple days were hard. He said they were hard for him too. She says she’s going to fight like hell to win veto. He says that’s what he wants her to do. She says she really hopes this is a true conversation. He says it is true and that it would be the worst kind of lie for someone to tell and he’s not doing that.
2:19 PM BBT – Natalie tells Lolo and Ricky that one of them is going home. Lolo says they should’ve kept Kato. Ricky says yep, they made a mistake and now one of them has to go.
As of now, Tom has a plan, but the exact target is in flux. It sounds like of the trio he’s after, it’s Lolo who can rest easy, though. It’s going to be an interesting couple of days to say the least.
