Final BB ShowI have been too busy with freshman orientations this month, and I could NOT stay awake to watch BB last night. However, I am watching it now. I knew most of the action except for the final HOH, and truth be told, I'm not a huge fan on the remaining houseguests. As a spoiler alert, the only thing I can say is that I'm glad James did not win anything! Ha!
The show started with the first HOH competition. James says that endurance is his thing, and his plan is to beast the comp. Oh, please! Paul realizes that he has to make a final two deal with himself because he can't be sure that anyone will take it. The endurance potision s seem good. The one has them holding onto a rope as th wall moves. They also have to stay on the selection for several minute. Combining that with the running, it's pretty cool. On the tilting wall, Nicole falls, and then James falls immediately after. So Paul gets the HOH. James claims that he didn't plan on falling right after Nicole. Yeah, right! Loser!
The second competition has clues about the house guests. The goal is to get the pictures of three house guests in a roller coaster cart. Then you have to push the cart down the roller coaster. The tricky part is taking the photo in the right time. Nicole got the house guests right, but she has the picture wrong. Nicole gets it right and moves onto the next clue. Beforehand, Nicole commented on how smart she is, and she does appear to be on top of all the clues. The problem is running back and forth. Nicole gets all three right. James says he has to win, but he can't figure out the right house guests. James couldn't even get the cart in the frame, so he continues with the wrong house guests. James is an idiot. James is cramping on the first clue, and he'll have three more to go. James does okay with the second and third. His time was 19:06. Nicole had 7:24. HA! Paul thinks James did nothing, and Nicole deserves to win. Paul thinks he can beat both. Nicole thinks Paul should win, but James didn't do anything. She thinks she can beat James.
We had a jury segment with Dr. Will Kirby. They all want to see Nicole, but it's Corey who joins the jury. Corey tells them how James fell out early on HOH. Da'vonne got a look on her face. Michelle said that James had a good social game. Everyone talked about how James did not get blood on his hands. Da'vonne says that James did no work. Corey said that James checked out of the game and just followed Natalie. Dr. Will says, so coasting can't get you through the game. Everyone seemed to think Paul was good until Corey said that Victor was Paul's shield. Da'vonne says Paul the player is good, but in person, Paul is mean and obnoxious. It seems that Michelle, Natalie, and Da'vonne are holding Paul's words against him. Paulie said that Nicole kept herself safe and won competitions when needed. Corey said that the votes went the way Nicole wanted. The girls seem better, especially Natalie and Michelle. Michelle doesn't get that it's strategy to get her out. Then Michelle starts to cry because Corey is smiling at her. What a fricking cry baby. Dr. Will rolls his eyes at her. What a fricking baby! Bridgette comments that the girls are bitter against Nicole. Da'vonne starts to build a case for Nicole saying that she was the puppet master of the men. I really dislike Michelle.
We have a BB Over the Top voting competition. We get to vote on whether Jozea or Jason from BB17 gets into the house. It seems we may also get to vote on who wins. Not sure how I feel about that.
Final HOH competition. Both get the first question right. They both got the second and third questions wrong. Paul got the fourth question right, where Paulie thought Victor was the strongest competitor. They both got the fifth question wrong. They don't seem to know the house guests well. Paul got the sixth question right. The seventh question was about Victor. The most annoying thing about the house was how dirty it was, and Nicole got it right. The last question was for Corey. They both got the last question right, and Paul got it right. He's final HOH.
Paul says that James wasn't there for him so he evicted James. Nicole said that she was shocked, and Paul said not to worry that the jury didn't hear that. Julie calls James out on not winning much. James claims that he was told to not win by former house guests. He was solely working on his social game and not being a threat.
We had the house guests arrive on the stage to ask the final two questions. Da'vonne seemed to want Paul to stay in the house before juror number 9 was announced. Natalie was first with the questions. She asked Paul about the vulgar things he said. Paul says it is his personality, and he is just having fun. Michelle asked Nicole about the one move that would earn her the money. Nicole brings up the part about convincing Natalie to keep Nicole off the block on the co-HOH. Corey asked Paul about his move. Nothing much there. Victor asked if Nicole was riding the guys' coattails. Nicole felt that she was working behind the scenes. Zakiyah asked Paul why he deserved the money over Nicole. He said he worked his ass off. He didn't hide behind the scenes. Paulie asked Nicole why she deserved the money. She said she worked day in and day out. She said that she was called a snake, and she was a vet. As she said, Nicole's whole game was out there if they just watched season 16. James asked Paul if he ever planned on honoring the final two with James. Paul said that he wanted to know who was the most honest with him at the end, and it was Nicole.
It's time for the final word from Nicole and Paul. Paul said that he thought he was the easy target at the beginning. He had to work to keep himself in the game. He said he could only rely on Victor and Paul's social game. He said that he stayed true to his crazy self. Da'vonne seemed to be really on board with the speech. Nicole said "crap that was good." Nicole said that she has been a fan since she was 8. Nicole gave her laundry list of wins and strategy. Nicole said she gave it all she got, and that's all she knows. She added that she is bad at making speeches. Da'vonne was first. She congratulated them. Zakiyah said she loves them both. Bridgette was next, and she just said great game. Paulie broke the ice saying it was a hard decision and called both excellent game players. Michelle called herself a super fan and congratulated them. Blah! Natalie was proud of both. Victor said that they were lucky there were no more buy backs. Victor was very funny. Corey told Nicole looking good, and Paul said "thanks bro." James said he had a lot of emotion, but both played a great game.
The earlier evictees were on the stage. Julie pulls the keys.
- James voted for Paul
- Corey voted for Nicole
- Victor voted for Paul
- Natalie voted for Nicole
- Michelle voted for Paul
- Paulie voted for Nicole
- Bridgette voted for Paul
- Zakiyah voted for Nicole
- Da'vonne voted for Nicole
I suppose that overall, I'm satisfied with the final two. I would have liked to have James out earlier, but it is what it is. This was a weird season. I really didn't like any one or hate anyone, although several of the house guests started to annoy me (like Michelle). I hope BB OTT is better.

Nicole Smokes JamesNicole and James played the second HOH competition late last night, and of course, Nicole smoked James in the competition. At least that was James' thought of it. After James was called into the DR, Nicole and Paul celebrated, and Nicole said that she was afraid that James might win, and that James tried. I think the problem is that James is just basically incompetent at any competition that doesn't require him to hang from a wall. He has an advantage there because he is such a short guy. You want to take James to final three because you know he can't win anything, but do you want to take him to the final two? That will be the question that Paul and Nicole have to ask themselves. I hope that whoever wins the final HOH boots James because he really doesn't deserve to win anything, especially America's Favorite Player. I have been using my 20 daily votes on Victor.
Friday, September 16, 2016 -- Evening
Clip Show and First Final HOH competitionPaul won the first HOH competition, and it seems he is working on Nicole so she can win the second HOH competition. James doesn't have his chance to win anything because he is really bad at everything.
The show started with the three finalists drinking champagne. Nicole cries in DR because she misses Corey. Corey left behind his pillow that he got on the HOH. We get a segment where Paul and James talk about being final two. Then we see Nicole and Paul talking prior to the eviction about being final two. Paul says in DR that on the off chance he uses, he has to make deals with both of them. James says he will take Paul to final two. Although Nicole ahs made a deal, she is not sure if she will take Paul to final two.
Then we had the onslaught of clips. I hate clip shows. I was actually read to fall asleep as I was trying to watch it. Some of the clips were on the show.
In the last five minutes of the show, they started the first of the final HOH competitions. It was one where they had to follow a laser around until it got them to an endurance location, they had to go there, get in position and hold on until the laser comes out and sends them to another spot. They get sprayed with water. The good thing is that it's three different types of hanging type endurance, and they have to run in between following the laser. We won't see the results, which is a Paul win, until next Wednesday's finale.
Wednesday, September 14, 2016 -- Evening
Bye CoreyAfter having a recent good run, Corey is going to find himself going home, as we will find in tonight's episode of Big Brother. The show started with the post HOH drama. Paul was crying over winning HOH because that gets him to final three. As Corey says, you go from hero to zero in just no time. Nicole realizes that Paul would be crazy to not put her and Corey up on the block. James is super excited because he hopes that Paul will take him to final two. Paul tells James they have work together. Paul realizes that with his HOH win that he has to send either Nicole or Corey home.
Paul nominates Nicole and Corey. It's what makes sense. James said it's like they are all on the block because the veto winner makes the decision. Corey made a joke that all Nicole had to do was get one more question right. Nicole got very upset at that, and Corey told Paul and James that he probably should go an apologize to her.
Finally, drama on the jury house. It seems Paulie and Zakiyah are on one side, and Bridgette and Da'vonne on the other. Michelle wants to see how else's dreams are crushed. Paulie was blown away that they blew away a non-threat. As Natalie shows them the video of the past week, Natalie says that she would have used the veto on James. Da'vonne makes a remark then about Paulie not using the veto on Zakiyah. Da'vonne and Paulie get into an argument, and the handler has to come and take Da'vonne away. Da'vonne starts yelling at Zakiyah about how Paulie treated her. Da'vonne was hysterical and really acting like a psycho. The handlers couldn't control Da'vonne. Bridgette started saying Paulie her skin boil. Da'vonne just has sour grapes from being a loser.
After the commercial break, we find out that Da'vonne thought Paulie pulled her out of character. Da'vonne is an idiot. The house guests seem to want to see Victor and James go far. Everyone applauds Victor for going back twice. They go to watch the video. Da'vonne said that Nicole played the game. Victor says he is rooting for Paul and James. I can't believe they like James so much. James has not played well at all.
Time for the final veto competition of the season. The comp is setup as a baseball field. It's the competition where they have to run about the bases to come up with day the event happened. The first base is one day, second 2, etc. There is a zero on each base to not add time. When they have the correct answer, they high five the umpire. When you are last or get the number wrong, you get an out. If you get three outs, they get an out. James is an idiot and can't get the right date, and he gets one out on the first question. James can't answer the second one and gets his second out. As James said, he had no strategy, and James is out on the third question. James is a fricking idiot. Nicole gets her first out on the fourth question. James was rooting for Paul. Corey gets the next out. Nicole has to think of the number, and then run. Nicole gets her second out. Nicole is intimidated hearing the guys compete. Nicole gets her third out, and she is out of the game. Corey gets the next question wrong, and Paul finishes first. Corey now has two outs, and Paul has none. Corey gets the next one right, and Paul now has one out. Then Corey gets the next one. Both Corey and Paul have two outs. Corey makes a mistake because he is running without looking at the number. He gets the number wrong, and Paul gets it right and wins. As Corey said in DR, he did not want to go out like that, and he knows that he will probably go home. James celebrates because being a loser secures his spot in the final three.
Paul does not use the veto, and says much love to both of them. Corey and Nicole get their final talk. Corey gives shoutouts. Corey says to Paul, friendship. Then Corey kisses Nicole. Nicole says that Corey is super generous and kind, and even more beautiful inside than outside.
James evicts Corey to give him and Paul a chance to make it into final two. Corey says that he is a little surprised that James didn't keep him. Corey thinks that in some ways it's good for James' game. Corey hopes that Nicole makes it to final two. Corey says that he knows he and Nicole will be talking for a long time after this,a and they will see where the romance goes.
Only two more episodes left. It seems that Friday's show will be a clip show AND start of the final HOH competition. Then the final episode is Wednesday. I hope James does NOT make it to final two.
Tuesday, September 13, 2016 -- Evening
Eviction EpisodeThe rumor is that Paul won the final four HOH, and we will find out on tonight's Big Brother. Victor says he has no respect for Corey or Nicole because they put both Victor and Paul up. That was stupid because there are only five of them left in the house. James says that Corey and Nicole always said they would look out for each other. As Nicole says, what did Paul and Victor expect. Victor and Paul are upset that Corey and Nicole put them up on the block. Paul goes up to the HOH to find out if there is anyway to say their game.
Paul and Corey talk about how Victor is sad. Corey continues that it is 100 percent strategic. Victor says that the thought he had an alliance. Paul says that if Victor wants to be angry and confrontational then Victor is the one going home.
The POV is the comic book competition. They have to go down the zip line, look at the comics, and get the comic books in the right order, without falling for the fake covers. Paul has some difficult with it, and had issues figuring it out. When Nicole gets her turn, she comments on how cute Corey looks. Victor realizes that he has to win to stay. Victor couldn't remember Glen at first. James admits that he has the memory of a fish. he is overcome by Natalie's cover. James has serious issues with his selections and he runs out of time. On Corey's turn, he can't find the ladder. Corey seemed to get the issues easily. Corey got 20:37, James got 35:00. Nicole had 13:55. Victor had 29:25, and Paul had 18:04. Victor hugs and kisses Nicole later and forgives her for getting him out. Nicole tells Victor that she doesn't want him to be mad at her because it would make her sad. So at least they made up.
Then we had a segment with Derrick. Derrick said that the thing Nicole did that was different than last time was not playing hard early. Derrick said that Victor would have been his pick, but he thinks Nicole has a chance.
The veto meeting, and Nicole does not use the veto. Victor feels like a sitting duck. Paul says he will campaign against Victor. They talk about Victor's comp wins. James says nine, and Corey says six in the house.
Paul and Victor get their final word. Paul mocks James about Natalie. He calls Nicole an animal (snake), and Corey not getting to first base with Nicole. Victor also made jokes about the three. So with the vote:
- Nicole evicts Victor
- James evicts Victor
The HOH competition is to guess if Julie is giving the correct word for a blipped out clip of one of their former house guests when the house guest was evicted. They have to get six points. They all get the first clip right. The second clip was Natalie talking to James, and James was the only one who got it wrong. Nicole got the next question right and got 3 points to Paul's 2 and James 1. They all got the next question right. Paul and Nicole got it right. Nicole has 5, Paul has 4, and James has 2. Nicole got the next one wrong so now he is tied with Nicole. Last clip. They all get the last question. Paul and Nicole are tied at 6. James got 3. The person who is closest without going over wins unless they both go over. It's the number of seconds from the official start to the official end of the sliding competition. Paul says 4800, Nicole says 6001 It was 4501 seconds. Paul wins HOH, and he cries.
There will be another eviction tomorrow, and Julie told us that there was an explosive confrontation at the jury house that we will have to see to believe. What could that be about? All I know is that James is crap at competitions. He is the one you would want to take to final three because you know you can beat him.
Sunday, September 11, 2016 -- Evening
The Corey ShowThe shows are going to move fast over the next two weeks. Nicole won the POV, and Paul and Victor are on the block. One of them will go home tomorrow (Monday), and we will not get the live feeds until Tuesday when we will have the next CBS show.
Onto the show, and the start of the HOH competition.Corey realized it was very important to win and beast one out. Victor did not like sitting out the competition. Corey and Nicole talked about how they had to take out Paul and Victor. Corey told James before Natalie went out. The three of them talked about how they all three had each other's backs. Back to the HOH competition, and Corey is lapping Paul. Nicole went for the little scooper because she thought she would get tired. Nicole and Paul both went to the little jug. Paul thought that it was a better idea after going for the big jug at first. Then we got a segment on Paul falling constantly. James was falling too, and he started crawling. Nicole was afraid that Paul was going to get the big scooper before her.
Nicole hopes the big scooper is worth it. Corey is really crushing it though. He does not seem to have fallen, and he is just whizzing back and forth. Corey gets the ball out while everyone else is just basically watching him. Paul isn't worried because he thinks he will be safe this week. Victor has no reason to not trust Corey and Nicole. Well, Paul and Victor aren't Big Brother fans, so they don't know they could rest.
Then we had a segment with Natalie and James where James was trying to make things right. James wanted to say that he wanted to let Natalie know how much he loves her. It was a nice segment to try to repair the damage CBS did to Natalie's reputation.
Next up is segment of Corey pranking Nicole with salt water. It backfired when Nicole spit the water onto him. Corey got a pillow with his dog's pictures on it. As Corey says, he will cuddle with it, and Nicole is in the dog house. After the room reveal, we got the segment where Nicole is asking repeatedly what Corey was going to do. She said on the live feeds she was doing it to give CBS footage. Corey talks about what would be good to get them to the final two. Nicole says in the DR that she feels guilty.
Then we get a segment of Victor always trying to win Nicole's heart. After that is a segment of Nicole and Corey watching James in the kitchen. They said that they needed to watch him to see where he went. Whether he would go to talk to Paul and Victor, or if he would come up to talk with Nicole and Corey. Well, when James headed away from the HOH room, there was a panic but James was just going to the storage room for some food. James went right up to the HOH room.
Paul asks Victor if he thinks Nicole and Corey would put them up instead of James. Paul says that James is sneaky. Nicole and Corey are watching the HOH camera, and they comment on how quiet it is. Paul is blind to the fact that he and Victor are both going to go up. Both should know it's a game. You only have so many options. Corey keeps on insisting tha they can't take Victor and Paul to the final four, and Corey says that they can beat James in any competition.
Corey has trouble sleeping, and he stares at the house guest wall before going on a cleaning rampage while everyone else sleeps. It's time for the nomination ceremony. Paul is sure James will be up there, and he's confident in the final four. Nicole feels guilty. Victor knows that one of them has to go up, so he can't be nervous. Corey says he's playing Big Brother and not Big Baby, so he has to make a big move. Victor and Paul are the nominations. Corey says that he could not put James up because if one of them won the veto and took the other off, then Corey would have to put Nicole up. Then in the next HOH, it would be Nicole against the other two. Corey says his momma didn't raise him to be somebody's bitch. I'm really starting to love Corey. I would love him to win. In the DR, Victor says he has another knife in his back. Victor says his problem is trusting someone in the game. Corey is hoping to send Victor out for the third and last time.
Friday, September 9, 2016 -- Evening
I watched the live feeds after the show last night, and it was a pitiful display by both James and Paul. James was practically doing nothing, stopping for water breaks and crawling on the inclined slide. Paul was only slightly better. He was putting his butter into the big bowl at first, then moved to the small one. Nicole filled the small bowl and got the larger scoop, and she was almost two thirds done when Corey won the HOH. Of course, the competition was made for someone like Corey. With the slip and slide competition, the person with the long legs tends to be the best. It seems that Corey wants to put up Paul and Victor, with Victor potentially being the target? Why? Because Nicole and Corey are making a final three deal with James. If they get rid of Victor, then it will be Nicole and James on the same side competing for the HOH. What they have to hope for at this point is that Paul does not get the HOH. That would foil their plans for final three. All in all, it seems that a boring person is going to win this season. In a way, I am hoping that it will be Corey, or Victor if he doesn't get evicted this week. Corey has shown some hidden depths in recent days.
Thursday, September 8, 2016 -- Evening
Bye, NatalieIt's eviction night on Big Brother, and it's supposed to be an endurance competition for HOH. The rumor is that it will be a slip and slide while a bowl is filled to raise the ball to the top.
The show started after the veto ceremony. As James said, this has put a strain on the relationship. Nicole knows that she and Corey control the votes, but she needs to make sure that Paul and Victor are okay with it. Meanwhile Natalie dresses in front of James while she berates him for not sticking with the people who got Paulie out. Outside, Paul, Corey, and Nicole talk. Paul wants to keep James and that makes Nicole suspicious. Natalie is really getting a negative edit by CBS. James tries to talk to Natalie, and she said that it doesn't feel good to go home. She doesn't want to talk to James. Natalie says that she feels like she is in a nightmare right now, and that's because James is trying to get some commitment about future relationships. Later, Corey and James are biking, and James tells Corey about how Natalie did not trust Corey and Nicole. Corey realizes that he and Nicole can bond again with James. Corey tells Nicole that they need to reel James in to work with them.
James wants to sleep in the same bed as Natalie, and Natalie says she does not want it. James doesn't understand it. Natalie keeps on saying she can't wait to go to jury. James tells Natalie that her true colors are coming out. James tells Natalie that she three him under the bus. Natalie claims that is not the case. James calls Natalie on how she was making out with the other guys. Natalie cries in the DR about James saying she flirted with Paulie. Natalie blames James saying he's not the person she thought he was. James admitted that he was going to give up the prize so Natalie could stay in the house.
Next up was a Jeff and Jordan segment about them getting married and Jordan being pregnant with a boy. Jeff and Jordan gave us their opinion of how surprised that are that three duos are left in the house. Jordan picks Victor to win, and Jeff picks Paul. I liked Jeff and Jordan in their first season (and heck the second one too). I think that the reason they made the show tonight is because there is nothing going on in the house, other than James and Natalie fighting.
After that bit of fluff, we got a jury house segment. In the jury house, Zakiyah is back with Paulie. Bridgette thinks Victor is coming out. Paulie admits that Corey was his tightest connection. Da'vonne thinks they will target Michelle. Michelle thought that Nicole's eviction was personal. Everyone in jury is shocked that James gave up the HOH to Nicole. Bridgette commented that Michelle is blind to what is happening. Da'vonne is shocked that Nicole is running the house. It seems she is a vote for Nicole and so is Paulie.
James and Natalie gave lame speeches. It's time for the live vote now.
- Paul evicts Natalie
- Nicole evicts Natalie
- Corey evicts Natalie
The HOH competition is the slip and slide one. Usually the slip and slide has more contestants, but this time, there are only four of them. They will have to slide across with butter and put in a large eight gallon bowl. There is a smaller bowl beside it. If they fill that one, they can release a larger scoop. Corey and Paul start with the larger container while James and Nicole go for the smaller one.
Julie tells us that next week, we will have episodes on Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday next week. CBS has football on Thursdays. Now to watch the live feeds to see who wins!
Wednesday, September 7, 2016 -- Evening
SnoozerIt's time for the latest episode of Big Brother, but nothing exciting has been happening this week. It seems Natalie will go home, and I wonder how much CBS will show of Natalie blaming James. CBS has been trying to show this as a shomance, when it is basically just a friendship.
The show started after the nomination ceremony. Victor loves having vengeance. Natalie says James is her rock, and she hates to see him go. James says he's on the block with his best friend. We had a segment with Nicole and Corey. Nicole feels bad about James being on the block. She cries in DR. Natalie tells James that she has kissed his picture, but she hasn't kissed him. Natalie says she likes being on the block with James, and Paul overhears that and tells that to Victor, Nicole, and Corey.
CBS does show Natalie constantly harping on James about how she wanted to stick with Victor, but she listened to James. James does not know what to say. Natalie goes up to talk to Victor and Corey. She tells them that she put her trust in James, and she made a wrong decision. She apologizes. Paul thinks Natalie knows how to play the game and is throwing her ride and die under the bus. Victor and Paul could not believe how Natalie was dissing James. Paul signals for Nicole and Corey to go upstairs. Paul tells them how Natalie was throwing James under the bus. Then Natalie goes down to James and tells him how she told them she put her trust in the wrong hands (James). Natalie keeps on rubbing in how it's James fault. The final four talk about sending Natalie home.
Time for the veto competition. Everyone competes, and it is a MacGyver theme. The veto is basically an escape room, with the person who escapes in the quickest time winning the veto. Natalie completes the three room escape in 9 minutes and 6 seconds. Because everyone comes after Natalie, they learn that they have to beat Natalie's time to get the veto. Natalie gets to sit in the HOH room and watch the action. Nicole is next, but she just gets into the second room. Nicole admits that she is not mechanical, and her dad would ashamed. Nicole loses. Victor is next. He tries to beat Natalie's time. He gets to the third room, and has less than a minute to figure out what to do. James is next. James wastes water and time in the second room. He's a real idiot. Then it's Corey's turn. He thinks he's good at mental comps. Nicole doesn't think Corey is good with mental comps. Corey is flying through the comp. Corey is smart and a problem solver, as he said.
Corey completed the competition in 6 minutes 14 seconds. Paul is last, and he is moving fast too. Paul gets stuck in the second room. As Corey said in the DR, that was his third POV win. James reallzes he will lose his best friend. What a friend! Victor, Paul, Nicole, and Corey celebrate in the HOH room, and they talk about how good Nicole was in the competition. James says he is going to tell Corey and Nicole to vote him out. James is really an idiot. Paul says that James is not intelligent. Victor says he wants James to go, but Natalie's attitude and comp wins are making him rethink it. Nicole says if Natalie would throw James under the bus, what would she do to anyone else?
Corey tells James to let it play out, and not to worry. Corey is trying to send subtle hints to James that he is going to keep James. Corey tells James to stop thinking of showmance and to think of what's good for the game. Corey does actually seem like a smart guy. Natalie and James talk, and Natalie asks James if he threw the competition, or if he has a final three with Corey and Nicole. Natalie says that if James works with Nicole and Corey, she will never talk to him again. Natalie says again that she trusted James and didn't do what she thought was best. Then Paul and Victor talk to James about what a bitch Natalie is. They both tell James that he is a good dude, and they wanted him to know how Natalie was throwing James under the bus. James is crushed to know the truth about Natalie.
Veto meeting: Corey does not use the veto. James says he won't campaign against Natalie. James says he deserves to be on the block. I think everyone in the house doesn't like Natalie. Poor James! He really thought he might have had a relationship with Natalie. Corey wants to bring James in closer. Natalie again says that she wishes she stood her ground against James.
Sunday, September 4, 2016 -- Evening
Wake Up James and Natalie!James and Natalie have been blind in playing this game, and unfortunately, it will be the end of the road for one of them this upcoming Thursday. Unfortunately, with Victor winning the HOH and Corey winning the POV, the die ia already cast. It will just be a matter of whether they keep James because he is so demoralized. What I think is funny is that James is mad at Nicole, but she had to get rid of this third person (Michelle) to ensure every group was only a twosome.
Tonight's show started with the HOH competition. Paul wants the final four with Nicole and Corey to make it to the end. Corey wanted Paul or Victor to win because it wasn't in his best interests to be HOH. That's the a good idea. We find out that at the very end, Nicole told James and Natalie that she was voting out Michelle. Natalie tells Michelle to talk to Corey. Michelle started to cry about how she should have campaigned. Nicole tells Michelle that Michelle should have talked to Nicole. Michelle says that Corey said that he would keep Michelle. Corey tells Michelle that it is best for both his and Nicole's game. Loser!
James sucks at this competition. Victor tries for the O in the HOH, but it just lands in back of it. We see Natalie dropping a lot of eggs. So does Paul. Corey realizes that he has to avoid certain areas or has to protect his egg. Corey goes for the Have container. Nicole doesn't like it because it makes it seem like Corey is comfortable. Victor was the first to knock down his O. Then Natalie knocked hers down. Natalie feels like she already won HOH. Corey knocked down an O. It takes a long time to get the O through the coop to drop it. Paul is upset over how long it took to get his first letter. Corey took the lead by getting two letters down, then Victor got his. Then Natalie knocked down her second letter. James had zero letters down. Paul has one, but he finally gets his second. Finally James knocked down his first letter.
Natalie seems to get her egg over to her ramp so fast that Nicole is afraid Natalie will win, but Victor gets there first. Inside the house, James realizes that he is probably screwed. Victor feels unevictable. Corey, Victor, Paul, and Nicole celebrate the final four and vow to win the veto.
CBS had a segment on Michelle stealing Pablo, the inflatable pelican. Then there was a segment with Victor, Paul, and Corey laughing at Nicole's small school. Then we got to Natalie and James. She seems to blame James for giving bad advice. Then she said she would use the veto on James. He tells her she should win and use it on herself. That is one relationship that will only be friendship outside of the house.
Late at night, James tells Natalie that she doesn't have to feel obligated to like him because he likes her. She says she judges guys based on their character. Natalie says she has gone out with a bunch of guys, and James is her first Asian guy. Then Nicole blasts Corey for going for the Have slot. But actually, it's a better spot to have them both able to play for HOH this coming Thursday.
James goes to talk to Victor and Paul. James said that he was in a final four with Nicole. Victor asks if it was before Paulie left. James says after. So Victor says that James jumped ship, so Victor does not appreciate James' lack of loyalty. Then Corey and Nicole walk in putting a stop to the conversation. Victor and Paul tell Nicole and Corey about the final four, but Nicole gets all wishy-washy about it. Nicole can't lie. Victor says he doesn't care because that is water under the bridge. Victor says that he just wants to the satisfaction of James leaving. James said he sealed his fate so Natalie can stay. Natalie says that made her sick to her stomach. James tells Natalie she is going to win without him.
No surprises in the nomination ceremony. James and Natalie go up. Natalie is sorry that she trusted Nicole and Corey, but that did get her and James this far.

Michelle is GoneI had a migraine last night, and I missed Big Brother. Here's the recap. The show started with Corey's bribe. Nicole did not use the veto because it doesn't show where her allegience is. Victor trust Nicole now, and as far as he is concerned, they are tight for final four. That is good news for Nicole because Victor won HOH. Then we had a talk where Michelle, Paul, and Natalie talk about not knowing who is going. Instead of going to the HOH house, Michelle wants Nicole to come down. James comes in and tells Paul that James and Natalie are not voting against Michelle.
James and Victor talk to Corey about using the bribe. James wants Corey to give James the HOH to throw the HOH competition! Idiot! Nicole worries that there's something she does not know when Corey tells her about it. Nicole is paranoid because she sees Victor talking to Michelle, and Michelle does not have her microphone on. Nicole is afraid that Victor might vote out Paul. Idiot! Nicole wants Corey to give Victor the bribe to vote out Michelle. Don't tell me he did that! Oh, yes he did! While James, Natalie, and Michelle lay in bed, everyone is scheming around them. Corey tells Victor that he will give him the bribe to keep Paul. Victor did not anticipate it, and both Paul and Victor thinks it's really cool. Paul says this is the friendship he has been looking for all summer. We go right from that to James telling Natalie and Michelle that they aren't talking about anything upstairs. James is such a loser!
Julie tells them that there is not a double eviction then or in future. They then got video messages from the family. Victor was first, then Corey, Nicole, Michelle, Paul, Natalie, and James. This leaves all the house guests crying. They had to have this segment because there is nothing else to show.
Then we had a segment on Victor and his family. After that it was time for the live vote. Paul says that he will keep the friendship if they keep him. Michelle does her usual rant at the eviction speech. She says she will bawl if she is evicted. She also says she will go after Victor. The vote:
- Victor evicts Michelle
- Natalie evicts Paul
- Corey evicts Michelle
- James evicts Paul
Time for the HOH competition. The competition is callded Poached Eggs. Its the chickenwire game. They have to get the chicken egg up and over the cage to the other side, and then roll it down a ramp and knock down 3 letters (HOH). The first to do that is HOH. There is also a Have slot, and the first three to get a egg there are NOT have nots. After the commercial break, the house guests find out that eagles will drop on the cages to break the eggs.

Michelle in the Dark
Michelle in the DarkThe show tonight started with Michelle feeling secure because she was up against Paul. It seems that James have been giving her advise to just lay low, and that's Michelle's plan. James told Michelle that Paul was Nicole's target. James feels very confident about what Nicole is planning.
In the HOH room, Nicole and Corey talk about how Natalie did not talk to Nicole. Corey says that he can use his bribe to keep the nominations the same. Nicole does not want Michelle to win veto. Have Nots are the first two house guests who fell. That's Corey and Victor. They have to eat seaweed and squid. Victor says he can't live off of that.
Time to pick for veto. Nicole picks Victor. Paul gets house guest choice, and he takes Corey. Michelle picks James. Michelle feels that she is in the dark, but James is just interested in his turkey sandwich. The POV competition is a counting game set at Christmas. The house guests get time to study three room setups. They have to answer number questions. The person who is closest. After they hear all the answers, they can stay or fold. If they fold, they can move to the next round. They devote some time to Corey going on about how he loves Christmas. Corey and Paul fold in the first round. James and Nicole are both one point away, so they get one point (candy cane). Victor is furthest away, so he is out. Corey, Paul, and Michelle fold, so it is between James and Nicole. Nicole gets her second point. She just needs one more point to win the POV. Corey thinks that if he puts in a huge number, he can throw the round to Nicole and get her the third point. Only Paul folds. Corey got eliminated, but the plan was a good one because Nicole would have been out. Michelle got the point. Paul folded, and Nicole won. She got the POV.
Victor goes up to celebrate with Nicole and Corey. He feels very comfortable with them. Natalie mentions to James that Victor is not close to them, but is now close to Nicole. Natalie wonders if Nicole is trying to get close to Victor. James and Natalie both say they are true to the final four. However, James and Nicole just stay in bed and do nothing.
Next up is a segment of Paul and Nicole saying they are missing girls. Meanwhile, Michelle cries, and Natalie tries to tell her that Michelle can win Big Brother. Ha! Michelle thinks she's ugly, and she cries. Paul talks to Nicole about possible strategies. Paul thinks that it's good strategy to get to the others psychologically.
Time for the veto meeting. Michelle says to do what she wants. Paul says taking him off the block: friendship. Nicole does not use the POV. James and Natalie smirk. Michelle claims she will campaign to stay in the house. James says the same thing. Unfortunately, neither has done anything.
Monday, August 29, 2016 -- Morning
Sunday's ShowThe show started with the HOH competition. Paulie wants to return to stab others in the back. James doesn't want any jurors back, but Natalie wants Bridgette. We then get to see the fight between Michelle and Paul, where Paul calls Michelle a cunt. Paul says that Michelle always kicks people when they are down, then she go crying about it. Paul says that he thinks James made Natalie's decision. Natalie says that she didn't want Victor to go. Nicole realizes that means that they wanted to get rid of Corey. Both Corey and Nicole talk about how they can't trust James or Natalie. That's why she did not want James to win the HOH.
Back at the HOH competition. Da'vonne says that she is stubborn. Then Da'vonne says that she is afraid of heights and water. Victor tries to talk Da'vonne into relaxing. Da'vonne and Zakiyah hold hands and jump together. Then we get a clip of Da'vonne, boo-hooing over how she let her daughter down. But she just oculdn't do it. Boo-hoo, Loser! Corey fell off at 25 minutes because this isn't a competition for big folks. Bridgette falls at 33 minutes.
Paulie almost slipped and fell, but hopes Victor falls off. Victor is determined that even though it hurts, he is staying in. Paul was having trouble with his grip, but so was Victor. However, Paulie went down at 48 minutes. Paulie says he just has to pick himself up and move on. Victor was down at 50 minutes. That left it to Paul, Nicole, and James. Paul is against James, Natalie, and Michelle. Nicole thought that she was super close with James, but now she is not sure. Nicole doesn't know who to believe or trust, so she just has to hold on for dear life.
It's down to Nicole and James. Nicole wants a letter from home, and James has a hard one for wall competitions. James jumps down, and Nicole wins HOH. Michelle is worried, but Paul isn't because Paul has been cozying up to Nicole. Michelle asks James if he made a deal with Nicole to keep Michelle safe. What an idiot!!!! Nicole asks Paul if he is okay with Victor. Paul decides to join in with Nicole and Corey so they have numbers. Natalie is mad at James because he didn't win the competition. James said that they kept Corey, and he gave Nicole the wall comp, so they should be good. Natalie is just pissed because she might go home.
Corey sort of talks Nicole into pairing with Victor and Paul. Nicole just wants Michelle to go. Basically Nicole wants to stay in the middle. Then we have a segment on Corey getting the care package. He has to read out the rules for the BB Bribe. He does not have to use the bribe or tell anyone about what the bribe was. Corey wants to do something stupid with the bribe, but Nicole tells him they have to do something with the game.
James does not want Natalie talking to Nicole and screwing things up. James says they have to trust Nicole and Corey. It's obvious that Natalie is just using James for game, and she's not too happy that he might not be considering her as much as she would like in the game.
Nicole really wants Michelle to go home. Nicole says that she has to act like she's still on with James and Natalie. Paul trusts Nicole and wants to show his trust by going up as a pawn. Nicole, Corey, Paul, and Victor make an alliance called the Final Four. So Nicole nominates Paul and Michelle. Michelle feels better because she is on the block with Paul who is Public Enemy Number 1. James hopes they don't get backdoored.
Sunday, August 28, 2016 -- Evening
Missed Big BrotherI'm going to miss Big Brother tonight, but I hope to catch up on the episode tomorrow. I just want to see if they show why losers Da'vonne and Zakiyah jumped off so quickly. Nicole won the POV this weekend, so she will probably keep the nominations as they are. Corey and Victor will vote out Michelle. James and Natalie will vote out Paul. That will leave the tie break to Nicole, who will vote out Michelle. It seems that Nicole is keeping true to Paul and Victor, keeping in the middle between them and James.
Friday, August 26, 2016 -- Evening
Nicole/Corey ShockerShortly after I went to bed, Paulie dropped off meaning that Victor is returning for the second time after being voted out. Within seconds of Paulie falling, Victor gave up the comopetition. It seems that he was more wiped out than he was letting Paulie believe This game is always hard for taller, bigger men. Paul held on for another hour before dropping. Then Nicole and James wrangled before James dropped giving the HOH to Nicole. She promised him and Natalie safety, and it seems that Nicole's target is Michelle, which is a smart move to get rid of the single who can join one of the three couples to sway the odds.
Then surprise of surprises, Corey won the care package. On Rob Has a Podcast, they were sure it would be Paul or Victor, but I guess that asshole Paul is just not as popular as people think. Actually, I don't think many of these people are popular, but that's just my feelings of dislike for them all.
Thursday, August 25, 2016 -- Evening
Live FeedsFortunately, I switched to the live feeds because I couldn't stand hearing the repetitive blathering that we should all panic because of a summer story. The competition looks like one where the house guests are holding on while on a small platform on a wall. They are getting sprayed with water. Da'vonne and Zakiyah just jumped off the wall and gave up after only a few minutes. I cannot believe how stupid they are, but I guess they really didn't care about winning Big Brother after all. I've never been a fan of Da'vonne's because I just think she is a loser.
Corey fell off first of the house guests. No one could understand the psycho behavior of Da'vonne and Zakiyah. Meanwhile Nicole's mascara is all running down her face. She says it feels like her eyes are sealed shut, as she has them wide open. Bridget fell off, and then Paulie almost feel off after her. He's struggling, so it looks liks Victor is going to make it back into the house. Victor just looks too stable, while Paulie is struggling too much.
I'm going to go to bed and finish watching the competition. I don't think that James, Victor, Paul, or Nicole will be falling anytime soon. If anything, I think the next victim will probably be Paulie. i was surprised at Da'vonne, Bridgette, and Zakiyah because I thought for sure a girl could hang on longer.
Thursday, August 25, 2016 -- Evening
ReturningTonight should be a good episode. It seems Paul was trying to cause fights in the BB house today. The show started post POV ceremony. Victor understands that James is the swing vote. Paul doesn't like the way James and Natalie are talking to Nicole and Corey. Victor goes out to put his clothes in the dryer, and later he comments to Paul about how the conversation changed. Paul comes up with a plan to spend time with Nicole and Corey, and then to make sure Natalie, Michelle, and James see Paul hanging out with them. Then Victor is going to then say that Paul has split from him to join Nicole. So Victor tries to make those in the HOH room think that Paul is flipping. James tells Victor that he sees Victor and Paul as a pair.
We then have a segment on Paulie entering the jury house. Da'vonne and Bridget thought it was funny, but Zakiyah was acting like she didn't care about him. Paulie called the three sore losers. As usual, Da'vonne is her usual self. Paulie called Bridget someone who didn't like any men. Paulie called them three catty girls. The three girls are really acting like sore losers. Paulie calls them bitter, and they are. Da'vonne claims that Paulie had her vote until just now. Yeah, right! Paulie and Zakiyah got into a lover's spat, and Da'vonne and Bridget get up and leave.
It's time for the live vote. Victor says that he is loyal. Ask Paulie that one. Corey says that he has played an honest game, and he hopes they keep him.
- Nicole evicts Victor
- Paul evicts Corey
- James evicts Victor
We go back to the jury house to find out how things were going over the weekend. Everything seems fine. They gets a package from Big Brother, and they find out that they get to battle to get back into the house. They all say no Victor, except for Paulie. Paulie wants to succeed more than he wants to breath. We get to see all four back on the stage. They get to find out that it's Victor.
Everyone in the house gets called into the living room. They find out that the five members of the jury will be battling to get back into the house. The last jury standing gets in AND if that person makes it the whole way, he/she can win HOH.
Then--unfortunately--my local station has a special announcement because of rain storms. They claim there might be tornados. The weather guy kept on calling it tornadic activity. So that means high winds, and all for a summer storm. We get several storms like this every summer!!!! The weather guy kept on repeating the same thing over and over and over. So I have no clue what the HOH competition is. I'll just have to wait for the live feeds to come back.
Thursday, August 25, 2016 -- Morning
Boring!I am really having a problem with this season. For the first time, I really find myself not liking anyone in the house (either in it now or evicted). It makes it difficult for me to even care about anyone winning, and in fact, I would like it if at the end, no one won! Instead of America's Favorite Player, they should have Player Who Inspires the Most Apathy. So, I did finally watch the veto show this morning.
Paul was upset after the nomination ceremony because he was nominated. Victor took Paul into another room, and Victor told Paul that he was told that Paul was the target and Victor was the pawn. Paul starts to attack Natalie about calling him a liar. Natalie says that she doesn't want to talk to him while he is heated. Paul tells them all that they all suck at the game. I think it's funny because he seems to think that he should never be put on the block. It happens. Don't act like a grade schooler. Natalie starts crying. In the DR, Michelle says that this shows how dangerous Paul is because he can make someone feel so upset for nominating him. I mean someone would have to unless they just want to give the money to Paul. Victor says that as long as one of the them wins the veto the other is safe on the block. Michelle makes some comments in DR about flipping the script and backdooring Corey. Michelle wants to get rid of Paul. As she said, Paul is dangerous. James just wants to get Natalie back and focused on the final four.
When Corey goes into the DR, Paul comes down to intimidate Nicole. Nicole says that she has to go and find out why Paul is saying that Nicole is 100 percent responsible. Corey comes out and strips off his patriotard, and being Corey, he is oblivious to what is going on. He finally does get it. Paul continues to yell at Nicole. Then Paul has a red alert warning. Nicole asks Michelle and Natalie if they purposefully wanted Paul to get mad at her. Paul just won't stop.
Corey and Nicole are busy making out, and they aren't paying any attention to the storm warnings. Paul is in the HOH room forcing everyone to study. As he says, they just need to win to backdoor Corey. It seems Paul is the only one who stayed awake all night. Only Natalie and Michelle gets to pick a chip. Michelle picks Paul's chip, and Paul gets to choose James. Natalie picks Michelle's chip, and Michelle chooses Corey because he's not the brightest bulb. Natalie goes to the HOH room and wants to nap in the bed, and she can't because Paul is sprawled out snoring. Natalie doesn't like how Paul is being so pushy. She doesn't like how Paul just takes over and plays like a dictator.
James is being a pranker and steals Paul's water and puts salt in it. Time for the veto competition. THey have to go into the yard one at a time and give a weather report with the correct names of the house guests for each. At the end Corey had 15 points, James had 13, Michelle had 20, Natalie had 10, Paul had 21, and Victor had 19. Michelle was pissed that Paul won the veto. However, she wants to take out Nicole. Victor, Paul, Natalie, James, and Michelle talk about the person to put up, either Nicole or Corey. Victor says that they have to worry about Corey getting the care package if he stays in. They think it will be one week of safety for Corey. No! It's a bribe. They are all encouraging her to put up Corey this time and get rid of Nicole next week.
It's time for the veto ceremony, and Paul takes himself off. Michelle puts up Corey. Corey is confident and not worried about being voted out. Victor is going to try to do everything to stay in the house. James realizes that everything is up to him.
Sunday, August 21, 2016 -- Evening
What Goes AroundPaul found out this past weekend that when you get rid of a staunch ally because you think it's best for your game, you find out it's not necessarily good for your game. Yep, what goes around, comes around. There was some drama when Paul and Victor went up on the block, and Paul did his grade school intimidation on Natalie and Michelle. He succeeds with Michelle, but James knows that Paul and Victor will come after him if they get rid of Corey.
But enough of that! On with the show. The show starts with the HOH competition. They have to hold onto a button in the dark until a voice tells them to let go. They then have 30 seconds to find as many disks as possible. Then they have to go back hold the button. We get a revisit to what happened 82 minutes before the eviction when Paulie and Paul tell Nicole and Corey to go after Victor and Hames. Nicole runs and tells James and Natalie. Nicole tells James she has his back 100 percent. James, Natalie, Nicole, and Corey plan on a final four. While they hold the buttons down, Corey is able to reach and grab one with his long arms. Then Michelle get her advantage of 30 seconds. However, she wastes it by not getting disks that fit. Nicole found three disks right away, but they were decoys. Paul lost his shoe. Corey was also messing with James to win too. Then Michelle was flapping her hand and she was the first one out. Michelle cried to Victor about how she needed to win. Paul kept on saying it was going to puke. He also lost both of his shoes. This was a really cool competition because of the button holding, disk searching, and goop spraying. Natalie says she has seven disk, but she's not sure she can continue with her sore neck. James fell on the final run to the buzzer. They got the final spray, and then were told they survived the black box. Paul had 5 disks, so did Nicole. Corey has 10 disks. Natalie had 10. It was a tie between Natalie and Corey. Paul thinks he is safe with Natalie.
Natalie brought her tenth disk back at 1:57:50 mark, and Corey brought his back at 1:57:54. Natalie won by 4 seconds. James realizes that he's been playing both sides of the house. Michelle feels safe because Natalie won. Victor really hopes that Natalie remembers that Victor did not put her up. The thing is that if Natalie keeps them safe, they will come after her and James next. Natalie, James and Nicole talk because Nicole wants to reinforce that James, Natalie, Nicole, and Corey will be final four. Natalie realizes that ie would make sense for the shommances to team up. Nicole said that Paul is very social, and Victor is good with competitions. Nicole says that Victor and Paul will be a strong team to combat.
Then there was a lame segments on Natalie spilling things. Then Paul talks to James and Nicole about friendship. While Corey is trying to talk to James and Nicole, Victor comes in. It makes for an awkward time, and Victor notices that the three of them were whispering. Victor goes to Paul and tells Paul that all three stopped talking as soon as Victor walked into the room. Victor says something is off, and Victor asks why people can't stick to a plan--like he did with Paulie.
Then we saw a segment of Friendship Time with Paul. He basically goes into the Safari Room and talks about crap. then it was time for the care package delivery. Michelle got the care package, which was the co-HOH. Nicole realizes that she is good with Natalie and James, but not with Michelle. Michelle wants to make big moves and stir the pot. But Michelle and Natalie can't compete next week. Michelle tells Natalie that she wants Nicole out. Natalie asks who the strongest two are. Michelle says Paul and Victor. They think they have to go after the strongest two. Michelle says that Paulie shed soem light on Paul's actions. Michelle realizes that Paul has been playing both sides. Michelle does not want to put up Victor. She wants to put up Nicole. However, Natalie works on Michelle. Then Corey tells her he is not after Michelle, but Paul and Victor are strong. Corey says he won't go after her next week. Natalie tries to tell Michelle that Corey will come after her. Natalie says she will put up Victor, and tries to talk Michelle into putting up Paul. Michelle realizes that it's personal with Nicole, and that Paul might be the better long term decision.
Time for the nomination ceremony. Natalie nominates Victor. Michelle nominates Paul, and Paul says shocking. Then Paul says to Victor, "can you get his knife out of my back?" Hmmm, sort of what he did to Paulie. Nicole was nervous that she would go on the block. Victor says he's a competition beast, but he's not worried. Ha, well, he doesn't.

Stupid Clip ShowCBS had a show with some special comps filmed on Monday when Paulie was still in the house. Based on what happened on the live feeds, Natalie won the HOH competition, which was something about finding stuff in sticky honey. Michelle won the care package, which makes her co-HOH and allows her to have one of the nominations. It seems that both Natalie and Michelle want to target Paul and Victor. What goes around comes around.
On the show this evening, Victor says that he doesn't fear anyone in the house. It appears that they are going to show the competitions without Paulie--who actually did compete in the special competitions. It's weird seeing them not show Paulie. There was a Ziggy Marley concert. I think they had this whos to do a clip show because they had cutout of the evicted house guests (minus Paulie, who was there), and then they showed clips.
They all did a dart game. Paul got $500. James got 25 cent. Nicole got $7.50. Natalie also got 25 cents. Michelle got 25 cents. Victor sucked at the game. He finally broke a balloon and got $500. Then there was a pie-eating competition, and it was obvious that they cut out Paulie, sitting to Natalie's left. It looks as if they had Corey and Paulie at the ends so they could be edited out of the video. Lame!
They did show some clips of the start of the HOH. They have to search in the dark in sticky stuff. Results on Sunday's show.
Thursday, August 18, 2016 -- Evening
So Long PaulieThe Pittsburgh Steelers are playing an exhibition game on our CBS channel, but fortunately, I can watch on another channel. While the Olympics are on TV, I'm watching Big Brother with the FiOS app on my iPad. I couldn't miss Paulie going home, and I don't think he has the return trip. So I'm wondering what Big Brother will be doing with the extra show CBS has scheduled for tomorrow evening. The house guest will be playing for prizes, but people are wondering if there will be a returning juror competition. I hope so because I really don't like these people, so it would be good to get some drama.
The show started with Paulie being at the bottom. The only way they can both stay in the house is with the round trip ticket. Paulie admits in DR that there is nothing he can do because Corey was his closest ally. James tells Paul that he wasn't going to give Paulie a hug. Paulie talks to James and says that he's not going to campaign against Corey. Paulie says that he realizes that he's not the best for everybody's game. James realizes that even Paulie deserves sympathy. Paulie refused to go and bake an apple pie as part of his punishment. Michelle says that Paulie brooding is making him the biggest baby. Corey tells Paulie that he doesn't want to see Paulie like that. Corey says that he wants to see Paulie at his best. Corey tells Paulie to bake the pies.
Paulie goes and talks to Natalie about the things he said. Paulie apologizes to Natalie. She thinks it's strategy because Paulie is on the block. I don't know that he was thinking at that point that he would stay in the house. Paul and Paulie talk about Paulie not staying in the house. Paulie tells Paul that no one wants to keep Paulie in the house. Paul says that he will give Paulie a sympathy vote.
Paulie talks to James while Paulie has his chef costume out. Paulie says that he would be Victor's target. Paulie tells James that taking out both Paul and Victor will be hard for James by himself. James claims that he's about big game moves. Paulie thinks that he might have Paul and James' votes. Paulie talks to James and Natalie about what they will want. Paulie tells them that if James and Natalie save him, he won't screw them.
First, we have a segment on Rachel and Brendon and their new baby girl, Adora. Rachel is obsessed with Natalie. Then we had a jury house segment. Da'vonne cries at Zakiyah coming into the house. Da'vonne tells Zakiyah that's a wake-up call that Paulie did not use the POV on Zakiyah.
Finally, the live vote. Paulie goes first with a shout out and comments on loving every single one of them. Paulie says Nicole is the sweetest girl. He says Natalie has a heart of gold. Paulie gave Michelle a kiss because she missed a showmance. Corey was boring after Paulie's speech. Corey says Nicole is the sweetest, kindest, most cuddlest snake. Now the vote:
- Michelle evicts Paulie
- Paul evicts Paulie
- James evicts Paulie
- Natalie evicts Paulie
- Nicole evicts Paulie
From what Julie has said, it doesn't sound as if anyone will be going back into the house from the jury. Julie has the house guests open their envelopes to see who had the round trip ticket. Paul had the round trip ticket. Julie Chen says the next HOH competition will be on the special show tomorrow. AND next Thursday, the house guests will learn that one of the five jurors will be coming back into the house.
Wednesday, August 17, 2016 -- Evening
POV CeremonyI wasn't able to watch Big Brother, as I anticipated, but I don't think I missed much from the show. Paulie had a breakdown on the live feeds, and I wonder how much of it they will show on this evening's episode.
The show started right after the nomination ceremony. Victor's target is Paulie. Corey was committed to the all guys alliance. Paulie cries in the DR, because he is a born and bred competitor. He is planning on beast mode. Paulie calls out Victor on the five guy alliance. Corey also adds that he could have put Victor up on double eviction. Paulie says that he was committed to the five guys, and that he trusted the group, which is why he didn't take down Zakiyah. Nicole outs the all guy alliance to Natalie and Michelle. Paulie and Paul talk, and Paul claims it ia slap in the face because he has been behind Paulie. Then Paul was very fumble mouthed when it came to saying he would pull Paulie off if Paul won the veto. Paulie knows he is alone. Paulie goes to Corey, and Paulie starts to cry and says that if Paulie wins the POV, he will use it on Corey. Funny because later in the POV competition, he takes the POV from Corey.
Time to pic for the veto competition. Victor picks Paul. Paulie picks house guest's choice. Paulie asks Michelle if he chose her, if she would save him. She says no, so Paulie picks Nicole. James, Paul, Natalie, and Michelle decide to bully and pick on Paulie on Paulie will suck at the competition. That's the sort of school girl thing that I really hate to see. These people are all a bunch of asses. Paulie asks Paul why he looks so serious, and then he asks if Paul is really pissed. Paul claims he had Paulie's back (lie), and Paul says that he's offended. Michelle says that Paul was not a manipulator. Paulie says that Michelle got into the head of the guys alliance to turn on them on him. James calls Paulie on Paulie making comments about Natalie. Natalie says that James likes her for who she is. Paulie says that it looks like a page out of Paulie's playbook, so he knows that they are all trying to get into his head. I really dislike them all.
It's time for Zingbot. Zingbot calls out Corey by talking about how Hayden was Nicole's boyfriend. Zingbot calls Victor a douchebag. James got zigged on scaring Natalie's parents. Paulie zinged on being a lesser version of Cody, a poor man's Cody. Michelle got caleld a cry baby. Natalie is called stupid with lots of armpit hair. Nicole was called on throwing her game away on a showmance last time and this season. Paul gets zinged up his stupid catchphrases. He's told to shut the f*** up.
Time for the veto competition. Zingbot is running for president. It's the prize game where the person with the fewest points claims a gift. The last player out gets the choice of prizes. Paul botched the competition on purpose. He's the first out. Paul got the 6th place prize, which was the POV. The numbers they already landed on are no longer in play. Nicole is out next. Nicole gets a secret service prize that makes the holder pat down the other house guests when an alarm goes off. Lame! Corey is next out, and he gets a vacation to any place. Corey takes the veto. Paulie lands off the board, and he gets a zero. Paulie is out. Paulie gets the patriotard prize, and he trades it for the veto. James is next out. His prize is $5000. He keeps the money. Victor gets a prize to make pies. He trades for the veto. Paulie is devastated. He knows he's the target, and he has no fight.
Corey gets a patriotard. Nicole thinks he looks hot. Paul has to dress up in a secret service suit and then has to pat down everyone, and check all checkpoints. It's really lame. Then we see Paulie making apple pie. He has to bake the pie and wave a Zingbot plag while the pie is in the oven. Paulie said that he would try to play the game, but he starts crying, Natalie gives him a hug. He tells Paul and Natalie that he was always the strong one. Paulie wants to just quit. CBS does not show how Paulie said he would not bake pies, and how he wanted to self evict.
Time for the POV ceremony, and of course, Victor does not use it. CBS does a stupid security alert during the POV meeting. Victor tells Paulie that it's really between him and Paulie. Victor says he can forgive, but never forget. Corey says that he loves Paulie, but Corey has to watch out for himself and his game. Paulie does not want to campaign against Corey.

Paulie in TroubleI won't be around this evening, and I have a busy day tomorrow, so I probably won't get a chance to see tonight's episode of Big Brother. However, I know what is going to be happening for the most part tonight. Victor wins HOH. He puts up Paulie and Corey, which is the big move that Corey should have made on Thursday. Then the house ganged up on Paulie to make him miserable and thrown him from his game. That's one of the reasons that I hate these people. They just love to go around making people miserable, and I'm just really tired of the grade school antics.
Nicole won the safety care package and has to wear a safety cone costume. The POV was Zingbot, and they had to exchange prizes. Victor wound up winning. He's probably not going to change the nominations, so that means Paulie is probably going to go home.
There is supposed to be a show on Friday, and I think that it might be another battle back for the jurors. In tonight's show, we will probably see the fight that happened right before Thursday's show when Paulie's game play was outed, and we'll see the HOH, care package, and nominations. I would imagine the grade school bullying of Paulie will be saved for Wednesday's show.
Thursday, August 11, 2016 -- Evening
Double Eviction NightIt's double eviction night on Big Brother tonight. The show started with some of the action from the house where the girls turned against Paulie. Bridgette wanted to shake things up by taking out Zakiyah. Bridgette says that even though she had faught with Michelle in the past, she wanted to play the game. Paul and Paulie say that they have to make a big shot next week. Paul doesn't want to risk another week by getting rid of people who aren't threats like Natalie. Paulie says that he knows that Paul personally is safe. Paul says in DR that he has been scratching Paulie's back, and he wasn't some reciprocation. Then Michelle talks to Natalie and James about how Paulie is running the house. Does Michelle have the numbers? Natalie and Bridgette want to keep Michelle. That surprises James, so he wants to stir the pot. James, Natalie, and Michelle tell Paul that Paulie has been running the house, and Bridgette says that Paulie trusts Corey most. Julie says that tensions are high in the house, and then she tells them it's double eviction night.
Time for the first eviction. Zakiyah tells them to do what they do. Then Michelle tells them all that Paulie has been going for $500,000, and now they are all aware of his game. Now James uses his power to block Corey and Paul. Time for the vote:
- Paulie evicts Michelle
- Natalie evicts Zakiyah
- Nicole evicts Michelle--saying that she knows she is staying
- James evicts Zakiyah
- Bridgette evicts Zakiyah
HOH competition is next. The competition is to determine if the statistic they are given on the house is more or less. Bridgett and Pauli are out with the first question. In the second question, everyone is out except for Corey. He is the new HOH. All the guys bumped chests. Michelle had done a victory dance when Paulie went out, but she doesn't look like she's dancing now.
Corey talks to the guys. James is now back tracking to be part of the boys club. Corey should put up James. Corey nominated Bridgette and Michelle.
For the POV, Paul, James, and Nicole will also play in the POV. It's the ball pit game that Jeff lost in. They have to find three clocks and get their last clock in. Nicole, Corey, and Paul get the second clock. Then Bridgette found it. Corey found the third clock and so did Nicole. Corey won the POV. Paul, Paulie, Nicole, and Corey decide that they will get rid of Michelle.
Bridgette and Michelle know that Corey won't use the veto, and he doesn't. So up next is the second live vote.
Time for the live vote. It's time for the final speech. Bridgette says she is ready to play this game hard. Michelle says that she can walk out the door happy because she blew up Pauli's game. She also calls Nicole a snack.
- Natalie evicts Michelle
- Paulie evicts Bridgette
- Nicole evicts Bridgette
- Victor evicts Bridgette
- James evicts Bridgette
- Paul evicts Bridgette--and gave a shoutout happy birthday to his mom
The next care package is super safety. The person will be safe, and has to wear a safety costume. Julie assured us that we will learn of all the details of what lead up to tonight. Paul told Michelle to stop crying so much. Sigh!
Wednesday, August 10, 2016 -- Evening
The Paulie ShowSo Paulie has basically been running the season, and I'm not sure if these smucks will ever figure that out. Sometimes, they seem close to it, but then they back track. He did not use the POV on Zakiyah, because she is expendable, although he may think he can save her by controlling the vote. The feeds have been boring, but let's see what they cover in tonight's show.
The show started with the post eviction action. Michelle sobs, crying and saying that she didn't use anything. Michelle, the supposed super fan, must not know she is on Big Brother. She sobs hysterical, because being such a big fan of the show, she can't understand why she is on the block. The girls try to console her. Personally, I just say BABY! My gosh, I want to smack her through the TV. Nicole told Michelle that everyone has to go up. Michelle says that she doesn't understand why Paulie isn't up instead of her. Michelle whines, and then says she is going to go lay in bed, which she does all the time.
Paul says that Zakiyah should go because she is not as hysterical as Michelle. Paulie tells Zakiyah that Michelle's emotional wreck act is the reason Michelle must go. Paulie tells Zakiyah to pick him for POV. He says he will take her down if he wins. HA! Zakiyah and Michelle talk about how Paulie didn't convince or sway Victor. Zakiyah does believe that Paulie wants Michelle out before Zakiyah. Later Zakiyah asks Paulie what she should do. Then Zakiyah tells Paulie what Michelle said. Zakiyah is doing it just to put the target on Michelle.
When Paulie and Paul talk about the girls, Paulie wants to keep Zakiyah while Paul wants to keep Michelle. Paulie and James talk about how Victor and James want to evict Zakiyah. Paulie is trying to convince James to use his care package power to get Michelle out of the house. James tells Paulie that if James gets rid of votes, those people will be made at him. James is such a pussy.
Time to pick players for veto. Victor selects Nicole. Michelle chooses James, and Zakiyah get house guest choice. She chose Paulie. Zakiyah says that will be the test of their trust. The competition is the same as before where the the house guests have to hide a veto card some where in the house. Then the others teer the house apart, and the last veto card found wins the veto. All veto cards look the same. After five cards are found, they stop to see whose card was found. Each person has three minutes to hide their veto card. Michelle, Victor, Michelle, Zakiyah, and James all pick lame places. Paulie hid his inside the kitchen table. James starts to destroy everything. James just wants to destroy the house.
Nicole found the first veto card, which was Victor's. Victor is pissed at the mess that James made in the kitchen, just throwing food all around. Nicole found the the second card (Zakiyah's). James found the third card. Victor finds the fourth card. So far, the competition has taken over four hours. Victor finds the last veto card. So, Nicole found Victor (1), Nicole found Zakiyah (2), James found Michelle (3). Michelle is devastated. Nicole found James (4). Victor found Nicole (5). Paulie wins POV. It's a huge decision of who Paulie is going to piss off.
Everyone goes into the house, and Pauli shows them where he hid his card. The house is a real mess. Zakiyah runs up to Paulie to give him kisses. Paul and Paulie talk about who to get out, and what is best for PP. Zakiyah asks Paulie about using the POV. Paulie says that he won't be using the veto unless he thinks he senses a flip. Zakiyah is now feeling silly because Paulie is not going to take her off the block. Silly girl!
Paulie talks to James about getting rid of the right votes. James says that it's obvious that Paul, Victor, and Michelle might be a block. James says that he might cancel Paul's votes. Time for the POV ceremony. Michelle says she has a gut feeling that Paulie won't use it so it is what it is. Zakiyah says that she will respect Paulie's decision. Zakiyah feels numb. She now says that she didn't come there for a boy, but to win. Michelle says that people will have to see how Paulie is winning so much. Michelle vows to get Paulie out. James claims he will use his vote cancellation the way he wants. And tomorrow is double eviction!

Update on BBThe live feeds did come back on during Thursday's endurance competition. It came down to Paulie, Victor, Natalie, and Zakiyah, with the final two being Victor and Natalie. After much begging from Natalie for Victor to give her the win, Natalie wound up falling off leaving Victor as the new HOH. He put up Michelle and Zakiyah for eviction. There is a split between Paul and Paulie with Paul wanting Zakiyah out and Paulie wanting Michelle out. Well, Paulie won the POV on Saturday, but it seems that he is not going to use the veto.
The other news is that James got the care package that will remove two votes on eviction night. What the the house guests doen't know is that Thursday will be a double eviction night. As you can see, I recounted most of the action that went on in the house since Thursday. I'm not going to be watching the show tonight because I'll be watching the Olympics, and maybe I'll catch up with it tomorrow. We'll see if I have time to catch up on it.
Thursday, August 4, 2016 -- Evening
Does She Stay or Does She Go?We will find out tonight if Da'vonne has a round trip ticket. The thought is that she does because of a poster with ocho on it. It seems that Da'vonne has an envelope with a number eight on it. So we will see what happens.
The show started right after Da'vonne went on the block. Da'vonne thought she has Friendship with Paul. Paulie tells Bridgette that he thinks only Michelle and Zakiyah will vote Bridgette out. Bridgette says that Da'vonne is a much bigger target. Da'vonne goes up to talk to Paul. She says that she's trying to figure out. Da'vonne said that Bridgette is trying to campaign with Paulie. Paul says he is trying to do things in order. This confuses Da'vonne. Paul does not want a tie so he doesn't vote Da'vonne out. Da'vonne says that she doesn't believe Paul so she has to secure her votes.
Next is a segment of Nicole falling out of the hammock. Michelle and Zakiyah say they will vote for Da'vonne. Da'vonne feels that James. Nicole is talking to James, Corey, and Paul. James wants to throw a vote towards her. James says he has a lot of eyes and pressure on him. They are all trying to figure out the double eviction. Da'vonne walks in as they talk, and James says that Bridgette and Victor would be up. Da'vonne sort of figures it out that there is a plot against her. Da'vonne goes to talk to James and Natalie. Da'vonne says that this Thursday, she needs to make sure that James and Natalie have her back. Da'vonne realizes that James is going to vote her out. Da'vonne tells James it would really hurt her feelings if he voted her out. Natalie and James talk in the storage room, and Natalie says she will do what James wants.
Next is a segment on Paul's family. Boring! Then it's time for the vote. Everyone appears to be dressed for endurance, which sucks because CBS has NOT been showing the endurance on the live feeds. Bridgette gives her speech first about being on Frank's side and being loyal. Da'vonne gives shout outs. Da'vonne prays there were no lie or deception this week, and that she is just a pawn.
- Paulie evicts Da'vonne
- Zakiyah evicts Bridgette
- Nicole evicts Da'vonne
- Michelle evicts Bridgette
- Victor evicts Da'vonne
- Corey evicts Da'vonne
- James evicts Da'vonne
- Natalie evicts Da'vonne
Da'vonne's envelope is opened after a commercial break. Da'vonne had a one way ticket, so that means the ocho hints were wrong. Da'vonne is first to jury. Julie asked who Da'vonne felt most betrayed by. Julie asked if focusing on Frank so much was bad for her game. Da'vonne agreed. Da'vonne thinks Nicole will go far, but James should be careful.
Da'vonne gets the good bye messages. Paul tries to act like he didn't know. James admits that he couldn't blow up his game this early. Da'vonne says the game is hard, but she would play it again and again and again.
Time for the HOH competition. It is an endurance. Damn! It's the standing/squatting on a disk while hitting into objects. The first three to fall off are have nots. Last on is the winner. James is squatting from the start, which I think is how Vanessa won last year. We also got a reminder to vote for the care package. This week's will give the winner an option to cancel two votes in the next eviction. After the commercial break, everyone is still up, so trolls are brought in to whack at the house guests. That's an interesting concept. Now only if the endurance wold be on the live feeds!!!!
Thursday, August 4, 2016 -- Morning
POVNews on the Big Brother front is a BB19 for the fall that will be shown only on through CBS All Access. There isn't a ton of information other than Julie Chen will be involved, and that it will be 10 weeks starting right after BB 18 ends. I hope that it is a better, more interesting cast than CBS has for BB18. I have to admit that I just passed on watching the show last night.
So now it's time to watch and recap. The show started right after the nomination ceremony. Da'vonne is shocked because she thought Nicole was going on the block, and she did not know about Paulie. So Da'vonne decides to take on the cabbage patch kid and talk about Nicole. Da'vonne tells Bridgette that she has to win the veto. Bridgette doesn't trust Da'vonne, and says in DR that she will only feel safe with Da'vonne on the block beside her. Bridgette talks to Paul. He tries to reassure her. Bridgette offers to make cookies for Paul.
What follows is a stupid hot tub section with the guys in the hot tub making fun of things Nicole says.
Next up is the Zakiyah and Paulie fight. Paulie thinks that he and Zakiyah have a good relationship, but in the past week, Zakiyah has not given Paulie room to breathe. Paul tells Paulie that Zakiyah has too much information. Zakiyah cries to Michelle, and Paulie complains to Paul. Michelle tries to tell Zakiyah to not take it personal. Paul tells Paulie that Paulie should just play along with Zakiyah until Paulie clips her. Paulie just wants to win HOH and put her up. Zakiyah goes upstairs, but Paulie and Paul are already sleeping. Paulie and Zakiyah argue because he says that he needs to sleep because he has to compete in the POV. Zakiyah says she might have to too. But he HAS to. They go back and forth. I feel sorry for Zakiyah because it's obvious that Paulie is a jerk.
Next up are pranks. 'Nuff said. Michelle hits Paul with an apple, leaving a bruise. She cries because it's near his kidney, and she doesn't want to be known as a violent person. Rolling eyes.
Time to pick for veto. Paul picks Corey. Corey is a giant. Paul gets house guest's choice, and he chooses Victor. Bridgette chooses Natalie.
Next up is Friendship and chess with Paul and Paulie. Da'vonne goes to join them, and asks what happens if Bridgette comes down. She wants Nicole to go up. Paulie goes to Nicole and Corey says that Da'vonne is trying to get Nicole up. Paulie also says that Zakiyah is going to be really pissed when Da'vonne goes home.
The competition is the Ready, Set, Whoa competition. They have to hold down two buttons with their hands, and then look for ready, set, go to run. The last person to reach the end is out. There are other words, and they have to hold down the buttons and not go until go or they have a false start. Corey just wants to show off his running skills because he was in track. So he winds up having a false start. In the second race, Bridgette was last, so she is out. Natalie is tired, dreamy, and out of it. Go came up quickly this time, and Natalie is out. Next race, and Paul is out. It's down to Paulie and Victor (who is wearing stupid pony tails in this hair). Paulie wins POV.
Da'vonne talks to Bridgette about what the plan is. Da'vonne acts as if Bridgette has control. Da'vonne doesn't know how to play Big Brother. Paulie tells Zakiyah that Paul will probably put up Da'vonne. Zakiyah does not think people will want Da'vonne out. Zakiyah says that Paul should be the next person out because he can win. Paul, Victor, and Paulie talk, and Paulie tells them that Zakiyah wants to take Paul out. Paul now wants Zakiyah out. Paul, Paulie, and Victor talk about clipping the girls.
Paul and Da'vonne talk. Paul is trying to cover his butt in case Da'vonne comes back into the house. Da'vonne mentions Nicole and then Natalie. Paul says he is browsing his options against her. Da'vonne thinks she is a big target against Bridgette. Paul tries to tell Da'vonne that they have a good bond, so Da'vonne should trust Paul.
Time for the POV ceremony. Paulie takes himself off, and Da'vonne goes up. Paul acts like he has two big targets on the block. Duh! Only Da'vonne is a big target.
Monday, August 1, 2016 -- Afternoon
The Who Cares ShowI missed BB yesterday, so I figured I would catch up today. I wasn't that interested in the show because there really isn't anyone that I like in the show. The show started with the HOH competition, and we heard how everyone wanted to win the competition. Paulie is the only one who does not want to win. He just threw his ball down the track, and he got a 6. Paul uses this "friendship" phrase. One thing we did learn is that Natalie is totally incompetent at the game. She feels special with James' support. Victor went with the red ball because he was consistent with the yellow ball. Victor gets a 14. Paul goes with the red ball, and he gets to the end, and gets a 21 by getting it in the end box. Someone has to tie him or get it in the HOH box, and since Paul is first, he would be HOH if they get 21. It's just that everyone has to roll their balls. Dumb!!
Paulie does tell Bridget that he has her when she rolls her red ball and gets a 10. Natalie starts getting perfect shots, so she goes for her red ball. She gets a 2. Natalie wants to cry because she is going to be a Have Not. Corey went off the track. He got a 0. Nicole goes for the red ball. She gets a 19. Zakiyah goes next, and she goes off the track and gets a 0. Da'vonne and Michelle go for it. Michelle gets a 16. Da'vonne gets a 19. So Paul is HOH. Victor, Paulie, and Da'vonne are all excited. Paulie wants to keep Bridgette as a number and get out a bigger fish.
For some strange reason, Paul wants a strong player to go up against Bridgette. Victor is not stupid, and he refuses to go up as a pawn. Paulie tells James and Corey that he wants Da'vonne to go up. Paulie says Da'vonne is Frank in girl form. James hopes that Paul does not get on board with it because James is boring and dumb. Paulie tells Paul that he really needs to get Bridgette out. Paulie says again that Da'vonne is Frank. Paul wants to put someone strong up to win the POV, like Victor. Paul really wants to take the weak way out and just get rid of Bridgette.
CBS shows us an HOH room review. Boring! It seems Paul lives at home with his mon, dad, and sister. When Paul asks for a pawn, no one volunteers. Da'vonne says that she already was on the block. James claims to have nerve damage from the HOH competition. Nicole says no. Zakiyah says hell no. Nicole says she is not the best at comps, but whatever. So Paul says "friendship."
Next up is a stupid discussion between Nicole and Corey about shelter dogs. Corey comes across as a really stupid person. CBS shows Corey and his dog, with the dog kissing him. Corey swoons and goes off into fantasy land about how gorgeous his dog is. He looks scary.
Bridgette goes to talk to Paul and Paulie. Bridgette says that Nicole and Da'vonne are close. Paulie says that Da'vonne is worse because Da'vonne stirs shit up.
Zakiyah comments on how Paul and Paulie are twins. We then have the twins segment. Paul calls it PP action.
Time for the Care package reveal. They explain that it will be five weeks with an advantage for the house guest who receives it, who has to open it in front of everyone. Natalie says she is so excited. Nicole is nervous because it could be a game changer. They hear the announcement, and they go to the backyard to get the care package. It goes to Natalie who gets the Never a Have Not pass. There are socks and then finally the Never Not Pass.
Nicole tries to talk Corey into doing it. She feels that she made a huge mistake volunteering. Paul talks to Nicole, and Paul realizes that Nicole is freaking out. Paul wants someone to trust as a pawn. Paulie says he will go up. Paul gives a whole bunch of PP and friendship comments. These people are such lamers!
Nomination ceremony. Bridgette and Paulie go up. Paul says that Paulie has to make sure the POV gets in the right hands. Bridgette says this is not friendship. Da'vonne is surprised that Nicole, who volunteered, is not on the block.
Thursday, July 28, 2016 -- Evening
The Last of FrankIt's eviction night. I am still watching, even though I dislike most of the house guests. We will find out about the secret room wit envelopes for everyone. Will Frank have the envelope with the return ticket that brings him right back into the house?
Tonight's show started with the twist theme and the secret room. Right after teh POV ceremony, Frank knows that campaigning against Bridgette just isn't right. Michelle talks with Natalie and Da'vonne, and Michelle tells them that she wanted to use the POV on Frank to insure that Bridgette goes home. Frank and Bridgette talk about the next week, and Frank gives her tips on what she needs to do to stay in the game. Bridgette says that people in the house don't seem to like Bridgette for herself, but Frank likes her. Frank tells Michelle that he'll be going home on Thursday. Michelle cries, and Frank comforts her. Then Da'vonne and Zakiyah come in. Frank tells Michelle not to feel bad about it. Da'vonne says that Frank is the devil, and it was okay that Michelle was a super fan of Frank's outside of the house.
James sees the message on the monitor that there are clues to the secret all around the house. Everyone starts tearing the house apart. Frank wants to stay in the house. Da'vonne says that the secret would be bad if Frank won something. Paul thinks he figured it out because of the green highlights on the travel signs. Paul realizes that it's your secret departures are leaving now. Paul sees the small white plane with a message saying call Paris. Paul finds out a trap door will open at his feet. Paul leaves the phone booth by the HOH room, but Frank is already there. Paul wants to get Frank and Bridgette away from the phone booth. Bridgette saw the message on the plane. She tried it downstairs, but Paul wouldn't let Bridgette get into the phone booth. There are 11 envelopes. Each house guest gets a ticket. Once you select your ticket, you can't exchange it for another. Everyone asks Paul what the code is. But Paul doesn't want to give anyone any information. Frank goes up to try it. Victor figures out that it's Paris. Da'vonne doesn't want Frank or Bridgette to get it, but Frank Figures it out. Da'vonne doesn't like the idea that Frank could come back.
Next up is a segment about having someone to hold onto. Da'vonne's was Jason. Jason is still broke and still lives in his mother's basement. Then Meg coes on and talks about how they are just friends. Meg thinks that James should watch out for Da'vonne. They we say Hayden from BB 16. They dated for a year and a half, but they moved on. Nicole wanted kids. Hayden doesn't think it's a good strategy to win BB. Finally we had Boogie talking about Frank. Next up is the eviction.
Julie talks to the house guests. It looks as if everyone is dressed for an endurance competition. They are all told that the tickets expire on August 18. Frank gives shout outs and calls Bridgette a class act. He wishes her the best. He tells the other the opposite applies to them. Classic! Bridgette is sad that Frank is leaving. Time for the vote:
- Da'vonne evicts Frank
- Paul evicts Frank
- Paulie evicts Frank
- Nicole evicts Frank
- Victor evicts Frank
- Michelle evicts Frank
- Zakiyah evicts Frank
- Corey evicts Frank
- Natalie evicts Frank
Julie opens the envelope as the house guests watch. Julie opens it, and it's a one way ticket. Frank is out. Frank says that he's not sure what went wrong. He feels bad that Bridgette might just be going up repeatedly. Nicole claims she had his back until Frank threw her under the bus. Da'vonne is bitchy and says that she's okay with never talking to him again.
It's time for the HOH competition. Each house guest has a red ball and yellow ball. They have to get the red ball down this wavy path to a box. The person who does that wins HOH. They can practice as many times as they like with the yellow ball. There are numbered boxes along the side. If the ball falls in there, they get that number. If no one gets it into the end, then the highest score wins. The four lowest scores are have nots. Michelle gets the yellow ball to the end, but she is going to try again before she goes for the red ball.
The viewers get to vote for a care package for the house guests. The first one is a Never Not Have Not pass. Once a house guest wins, they can't win again. I'm not voting. I would put them all on slop. When we come back from the commercial, the house guests are still going at it. I hope it's on the live feeds!
Wednesday, July 27, 2016 -- Evening
Big Boring, I mean Big BrotherI am definitely having issues finding anything interesting about this bunch of house guests. Da'vonne is an idiot. Nicole is a whiny idiot. Paul acts like he's in charge of everything, and his constant use of the word friendship is really grating on my nerves. Last year I didn't really hate anyone, and I loved Johnny Mac. This year, I don't really like anyone, and I hate a good many of them. But, of course, I will continue to watch. I just might not be as engaged as I would like.
Meanwhile in the house, they found the hidden room, which had one envelope for each house guest. I don't believe they were named. One of the envelopes is a ticket back into the house on eviction. They can't open the envelopes until they are evicted. Oh, and Michelle won the POV and did not use it. Now on to the show.
The show started with the post nomination action. Frank had his suspicions that he would go on the block, but Frank thought James had no backbone to put up him and Bridgette. Bridgette whined about being lied to. Frank told Bridgette that everyone lies in the house. Bridgette says that she didn't lie, and Frank agrees that she was honest. Meanwhile, Da'vonne, Paul, Nicole, and Zakiyah dance in the storage room. Michelle hates Bridgette because of stuff that Bridgette supposedly said early on in the house.
Frank goes to talk to James. Frank tells James that even though James gave Frank his word, Frank knew that James would put him. James tells Frank that Da'vonne is the one who creates all the drama. Frank tells James no hard feelings. Time to pick for veto. James pulls Michelle. She says she is pumped and ready to win. Bridgette picks Da'vonne. I can't stand her. Frank picks Nicole. I can't stand to hear Nicole's voice or look at her face. She reminds me of a Bronte. Paul goes to tell Da'vonne, Michelle, and Nicole that they have to win.
Time for the veto, and it's an OTEV. James threw the comp, and he was out first. Da'vonne was back first, followed by Michelle, Bridgette, Frank, and Nicole. For some reason, everyone calls Michelle Mich. Da'vonne is out because she's an idiot. For the third one, Michell is back first, followed by Bridgette and Frank. Bridgette is first, and Frank is on Michelle's tail, but she manages to beat out Frank. Unfortunately for Bridgette, Michelle finds the last clue. Da'vonne is screaming like a banshee. I hate her. I really dislike these people.
Frank tries to talk Michelle into taking him off the block. Michelle admits that she likes Frank, and she wanted to work with him from the beginning, but Frank was always in with Bridgette. Michelle says that if Frank campaigns against Bridgette, Michelle will use the veto. James, Da'vonne, and Paul talk in the storage room, so Paul goes into the room to break up the conversation. Zakiyah goes in. Then Paul too. Frank asks them to leave so he could talk to Michelle. Paul goes around saying pissed. I hate Paul. Da'vonne realizes she has to calm down Paul. Paul interrupts Corey and Nicole making out. Then Paulie, Corey, and Nicole try to calm down Paul is carrying on like a big baby. Paul acts like an idiot. Paul claims that Frank was talking to everyone other than him. Frank tries to tell Paul that Frank is on the block. Frank says he can't pull himself off the block. Frank also tries to explain that he can't put up the replacement nomination. I just really want to punch Paul's little pinhead. Paul makes no sense at all in his conversation.
James thinks that Frank is making everyone fell uncomfortable. James calls a house meeting, and everyone in the whole house goes up to the HOH room. Paul wants to talk about the POV ceremony. Frank says that he wants the veto to used and he wants Da'vonne to go. Frank says that no one is going to say that Da'vonne should go with her in the room. Paulie says that it won't work; it's down to Bridgette and Frank. Frank tells Paulie and Da'vonne for having backbones. Paul just smirks. I hate Paul.
Bridgette calls out Michelle. Bridgette says that she is trying to be nice to MIchelle, but Michelle is never nice around her. Then it comes out: Michelle is jealous that Frank is friends with Bridgette. It's painful to watch Michelle be a bitch to Bridgette.
So time for the veto ceremony. Michelle wants to use the veto on Frank, but she also realizes that nine other people will kill her, so she does not use the veto. Frank feels defeated and hopes for a coup d'etat. Bridgette cries. Da'vonne acts smug.
Monday, July 25, 2016 -- Afternoon
Things We Missed on the Live FeedsI was busy yesterday evening, and I didn't get a chance to watch Big Brother. Here's the recap for the episode. Victor says in DR that he learned from his experience getting evicted. Paul says that he is doing super well with the house since Vic left. Paulie is upset because Vic went out because of Paulie. Frank wants Victor on his side. Victor tells Frank that Tiffany told Victor to stick with Frank. Victor has learned and told Frank to not trust anyone. James is nervous because James is a little weasel. Da'vonne meanwhile still wants Frank out. Then Nicole tells Frank that Da'vonne wants him out. Meanwhile Paul tells Paulie that they have friendship, so Paul will keep Paulie safe from Vic. These people are so annoying. Paul tells everyone to trust him because he knows how to handle Victor.
In the HOH competition, they have a band attached to their wrist. They have to keep their hands above their heads and keep moving as bars move past their legs. Paul is the first out because he's loser. Nicole is out after 1 hour 15 minutes. It was going over 5 hours, and Da'vonne, James, and Bridget are still going. Natalie tells James that if he wins, he gets a smooch on the lips. Frank wants Da'vonne to drop. Frank tells Da'vonne that Bridget won't drop. Frank tells Da'vonne that someone told him that Da'vonne was out for Frank. Frank tells her that it was Nicole. Da'vonne says that it's hurtful. Da'vonne says she doesn't trust Bridgette, and Bridgette says that it's the same for her. Frank keeps on telling her that he has Da'vonne's back. She says that she is screwed either way.
Nicole is called out, and Da'vonne says that she won't drop. Da'vonne says that she won't drop. Bridgette gets an okay from Frank. Bridgette drops, then Da'vonne drops. James gets HOH and a kiss on the lips from Natalie. Now Nicole has to do damage control with Da'vonne. Da'vonne says that she believes Nicole, but she shouldn't because Nicole did out her. Nicole doesn't want to talk to Frank now, and she says that she doesn't trust him. Meanwhile Paul tells James that Paul can control Victor. Paul tells Victor that Frank has to go because everyone is after Frank. Victor says that he just has to lay low for now. Paul tells Victor to lay low.
James was going to put up Frank and Victor, but Da'vonne tells him that he has to put up Frank and Bridgette so Bridgette can't take Frank off with the veto. Victor says that he just wants a fresh start with James and Natalie. James then tells Natalite that he has to put Bridgette up. Natalie tries to tell him it's his HOH, but it's James. Paulie talks to James and tells James that Mike Boogie said that you can always bounce checks in the BB house.
Frank talks to James, and Frank says that he can trust James and Natalie. Frank said that he trusted Nicole, but he can't anymore. James tells Frank that James won't be putting him up, which is an open lie. James puts up Bridgette and Frank. Bridgette is shocked. James says Bridgette is collateral damage, but that Frank is behind all the trouble. Bridgette says that everyone has been lying to her. James decided to do what the house wanted.

Battle BackTonight is the Battle Back. There was a leak on the feeds that showed Glenn and Jozea competing, but there wasn't much information, other than it happened last night. First up was Glenn and Jozea. Glenn said that he was pumped. The competition was the balance beam and ball competition that James threw for the HOH that Paulie first won. They have to retrieve berries one at a time. Once they have 10 berries, it's locked, then they go back for the last ten. The column of berries they are currently working on will be dumped. Jozea wants to take the difficult path because it is quick. They also have a poison berry that will dump an opponent's row. Jozea falls and loses berries. Glenn says he will be slow and steady. Jozea is sure that he is faster than Glenn. Jozea does catch up and passes Glenn. Glenn decides to get the poison berry and wants to use it. However, Jozea locks his row first. Then Jozea uses his, and Glenn uses his berries. Glenn loses. He's upset, but he can't wait to see his daughter.
Now, it's time for Jozea to battle Victor. This competition is different. Victor can't see who it is, but he has to know it will be Jozea. Victor says that it's the worse case. Jozea is not happy either. Jozea does not want to give up his Battle Back belt bling. They have to throw a tennis ball off a big racket, and knock down their opponent's face. The first player to knock down all five wins. However, there are three balls, so they have retrieve balls. Victor has to figure out how to bounce the ball to knock down a face. He's the first to knock down a face. As Jozea says, this competition is ridiculously hard. Finally, Jozea knocks down a face. Victor gets a second fac and wants to stay focused. Jozea is getting tired with the running around. Victor is losing his focus and getting tired. Finally Victor and Jozea are tied. Victor gets target four. The hardest one is left for Victor--the little target hiding right behind the net. Finally Victor gets the last one and goes on to the next round. Victor and Jozea hug.
Next up is Victor versus Bronte. Bronte is an idiot. She should lose. She squeals about girl power. Victor doesn't want to give up the belt to Bronte, but she has to win. The competition is a mind game. Obviously trying to get Bronte to win. Pictures are being shown, and they have to move through six booths. They have to correctly answer the questions in each booth to go back. Bronte realizes that she has to look at all three monitors. Victor got three answers wrong. Bronte got a bunch wrong. Victor shouts at himself in Spanish. Bronte just guesses and puts the tiles in and pushes the button. Victor won round. Bronte is an idiot, and I'm glad to see her gone. Bronte said that she was honest and genuine, but that doesn't get you far in the BB house. What a dumb girl!!!
Now it's down to Victor and Tiffany. Tiffany hopes it's not Victor because he is a competition beast. Victor says this is his second chance to get Tiffany out. They have to search through their bins to find puzzle pieces. They have to listen for clues. The first to finish it will go back into the house. Tiffany says that she is good at puzzles, so she should win. Tiffany doesn't think Victor is going about the puzzle right, and Victor says he's not a good puzzle person. Tiffany notices that Victor has a lot up, but she thinks her slow and steady will win. Tiffany only has one goal and that's to battle her way back into the house. Victor realizes that he has to shift the whole puzzle up. Victor has the puzzle done, but he has to finish the time parts to finish. Victor won, and he goes back into the house. Tiffany goes home. Tiffany tells Victor to trust Frank and not to trust Da'vonne.
Time to let the house guests know someone is coming back into the house. Julie lets them know about the Battle Back competition and how they previous evictees were sequestered. Julie told them that the person will be coming back shortly. The doorbell rings, and they see Victor. They act excited, but who knows. There is another twist they don't know about. Clues are spread around the house about a secret room (the second HOH room from last year). The person who discovers the clues and the room will get a special power. The room and cluse are only in play for four weeks. The HOH competition will be played on Sunday.
Thursday, July 21, 2016 -- Evening
Who Leaves?Tonight's show started after the Road Kill ceremony. Da'vonne laughed shrilly in the DR. Tiffany said that Da'vonne is not going to get under her skin. Frank says that Da'vonne is already cracking. Paulie talks to Da'vonne about how the plan is to keep her over Tiffany. Meanwhile Natalie gets upset because James doesn't want the slop that Natalie made. Natalie tells James that she should not have started to like James. Natalie tells James that America knows who she likes. James apologized, and they snuggled.
Frank tells Corey and Paulie that Da'vonne is going to try to get rid of the boys, while Tiffany won't. Then Tiffany tells Nicole about all the lies that Da'vonne has been telling, and then Tiffany tells Nicole about how Da'vonne outed the couples alliance with her. Then Tiffany goes to talk to Paulie, trying to influence him. Paulie is surprised that Da'vonne turned her back on her alliance. Paulie thought they had each other's back. Da'vonne goes up to the HOH to complain to Michelle and Zakiyah about how Tiffany is making friends with all the others. As I mentioned, I really don't like Da'vonne.
Da'vonne talks to James and says we have to cut the showmances off. James says that he's in a showmance, and Da'vonne says not you, everyone else. Da'vonne says that he's on the bottom of the list. James went to Corey and tells him that Da'vonne is after Paulie, Zakiyah, Corey, and Nicole. Da'vonne has a really awful, stupid game.
Vanessa and Corey talk about their siblings. Paulie's dad said that Paulie should have aligned with James. Vanessa talks about Tiffany. It's amazing how much they sound alike. Vanessa thinks that Tiffany should align with Frank and that Tiffany has a chance to win.
Time for the live vote. Da'vonne thanks god several times. Natalie had the best summer of her life. Tiffany says it's a once in a lifetime opportunity. The vote is:
- Michelle evicts Tiffany
- Zakiyah evicts Tiffany
- James evicts Tiffany (after a pause)
- Nicole evicts Tiffany
- Frank evicts Tiffany
- Corey evicts Tiffany
- Bridgette evicts Tiffany
- Paul evicts Tiffany
We also find out that the teams are ending and so is Road Kill. We got a clip with the evicted house guests. Glenn is going to go for the vets. He says he has a lot of game left. Jozea blames Da'vonne and says that she is a snake. Jozea says he won't be cocky the next time he goes in. Victor blames himself for being evicted. He thinks he should have aligned himself differently. His target is Paulie. Bronte wants to get in the house so badly. Bronte is going for someone that she hasn't decided on.
Julie tells them the team twist and Road Kill are officially over. Julie tells them that there are twists and secrets to come. There wasn't an HOH competition, so it seems that the returning house guest might be in the HOH competition. Tomorrow will be the Battle Back. Then we get confirmation that the returning house guest can compete for HOH. Tomorrow should be interesting. It sounds like no live feeds until AFTER the Battle Back show.
Thursday, July 21, 2016 -- Afternoon
POV CompetitionI did manage to squeeze in some time to watch Big Brother this morning. After the Road Kill ceremony, Tiffany said that she needed to break up the other side. Nicole cries in the DR because Corey is her best friend in the house. Corey believes that Frank won Road Kill. Then Natalie cries because she is all alone. Corey insists that Tiffany could not win the Road Kill because she just isn't capable. Nicole thinks that Tiffany is trying to hide something. Da'vonne says that Tiffany is crazy. Paulie says it doesn't matter. He tries to "intimidate" Tiffany by telling her that she was going to go home. Tiffany just laughs at him. Paulie says that he was "bred" for this. Paulie is an idiot and his intimidation was idiotic.
Meanwhile, Frank and Tiffany compare notes with Bridgette and James about they don't trust anyone on the other side. Tiffany asks James if he does not realize that James is low on the totem pole. Tiffany says that Paulie, Corey, Zakiyah, and Nicole are the four leaders. James just wants to lay low this week. Corey tells Frank that there is no way that Tiffany won it because she is the worst player. Frank asks Corey who won, and Corey acted like an idiot. Well, Frank knows that means Corey thinks he won Road Kill. Frank says that he trusts Corey. Corey is an idiot though. He knows Frank won Road Kill.
Frank goes and talks to Da'vonne because he wants to know what happened. Da'vonne won't talk to him. Meanwhile Paul goes walking by pretending to look for glasses, and his comment in DR is that Da'vonne should not be talking with Frank. Paul then runs to Corey and Paulie and tells them that Da'vonne and Frank are together. Well, they all have the same gut feeling. The three guys say that if Tiffany wins POV, Da'vonne will go up in her place.
Then we hae a cooking segment with Paul who says that he has a new passion for baking muffins. Meanwhile on the feed, Bridgette is the baker and cook. It's one of the silly segments that CBS loves.
Time for the POV selection: Paulie picks chips for Da'vonne and Paul. Frank gives Tiffany a positive speech. Da'vonne coms in, and Tiffany is not sure if Da'vonne would use the veto on her. The veto come is a head to head. They are shown a picture with three ice cream scopes. The pair has to match three giant cones with the scopes. They can only move one scope at a time. Corey is up first, and he picks Tiffany. The others keep on telling Corey to look at the screen. Corey decides that he has to copy Tiffany, but hit the buzzer first. Corey is an idiot, and he just wins because Tiffany is also stupid. Corey is like a big, idiot dog. Paul is next, and he picks Natalie. Natalie is an idiot too. Paul wins. Da'vonne doesn't want to play, and she whines about wanting to play last. Paulie goes after Da'vonne. She is a huge idiot too. Paulie easily beats Paulie. She wanted to win, but she is too stupid to figure anything out. Corey challenges Paul. Paul tells Corey to throw the competition to him so Paul can win the veto and keep himself safe. Paul takes his time, moving slowly and stupidly. It was so bad that Corey wound up winning. Corey and Paulie have to compete. Paulie says that Corey is his boy, and Paulie threw the competition to Corey. Da'vonne realizes that it's obvious Paulie is throwing it. Nicole cries and throws a tantrum because she doesn't want to be on the block. Meanwhile, Da'vonne is also crying because Corey won. Tiffany says that suspicious because Da'vonne knows Tiffany won Road Kill. She thinks this shows that Da'vonne does not trust her.
Tiffany realizes that she needs a bigger target than herself this week. Da'vonne tells Frank that she thinks she is going up. Frank tells Da'vonne that he is sure that Tiffany won, and that Tiffany and Da'vonne are tight. The Paulie group are still thinking that Frank won the Road Kill. These people are idiots. Paulie tries to talk sense to them. Da'vonne goes to Tiffany to ask what the plan is. Tiffany says she has no idea. Da'vonne goes to leave, and Tiffany says that is shady. Tiffany tells James that Da'vonne knows that Tiffany won the Road Kill so why was Da'vonne acting this way. Tiffany says that she might have to put Da'vonne up. Da'vonne goes to Paulie and freaks out because she is going up. Da'vonne is sure that she is going up. Da'vonne plays a really crappy game. Tiffany outs all of Da'vonne's tricks. Tiffany tells Paul that she won when Paul goes to ask if he is going up. Tiffany's hope is that Paul and Frank can help Tiffany campaign against Da'vonne.
Corey decides to use the POV on himself. Da'vonne goes up in his place. Da'vonne hugs Natalie, flips her hair at Tiffany, and says pissed. Tiffany realizes that the bigger threat is on the block, and that Da'vonne's game is blowing up in her face. I hope that Da'vonne goes just because she annoys me. Da'vonne claims that Tiffany will go home and cry and cry and cry because Tiffany is a cheap knock-off of her sister.
Wednesday, July 20, 2016 -- Afternoon
Da'vonne on the BlockI don't think I will get a chance to watch Big Brother tonight, and I probably won't get a chance to watch it tomorrow before the eviction. I don't think there will be much that I don't know about. Corey takes himself off the block. Tiffany nominates Da'vonne as the Road kill. When Da'vonne got on the block, she flipped her hair on purpose to hit Tiffany in the face. Now THAT would be fun to see. There is some talk about getting rid of Da'vonne, just because she was talking with James about targetting the showmances, which James sort of has with Natalie. That was a really stupid thing to do. I'm not sure if CBS will show the hair flip, but Tiffany wasn't happy with it.
Monday, July 18, 2016 -- Morning
Tiffany is the StarI finally had a chance to watch the BB show from last night. Frank called out Nicole because he knew that Nicole flipped on him. Frank, however, was safe for the week, and he's trying to figure out who is on his side. Nicole makes Frank apologize to her about it being her that voted against Frank. Corey is "playing" dumb. I thnk he is dumb. Paulie, meanwhile, says that he didn't want to win HOH. Natalie cries about losing her best friend in the house. Bridget is completely shocked, and she feels that her HOH was worthless.
Tiffany goes up to Frank to say that she was after Frank because he was after her. Frank says that Da'vonne told him that Tiffany had an all-girl alliance that was after him. Tiffany knew that she had told Da'vonne so she knew it. Da'vonne starts arguing with Frank about how Frank is going home. However, Frank is safe this week. Frank says Da'vonne created drama last time, and she's doing that this time. This gets Da'vonne to shut up. I really don't like Da'vonne. I think CBS is promoting her as the star of the year, but I can't stand her. Then Da'vonne talks to Frank to try to fix things. Da'vonne says that she is over Frank slapping her on the butt. Frank says that he felt really sorry about that, and Da'vonne says that is so over, and she giggles with Frank. Da'vonne claims that someone came to her and said that Frank was after her. Da'vonne won't say who it was because it was no one. Frank doesn't trust Da'vonne now, and he doesn't buy anything she is saying. As soon as Da'vonne gets HOH (in her dreams), Frank is going out to meet Julie.
Paulie says that Tiffany is his target this week. Paulie tells James, Da'vonne, and Paul that Natalie is going to be a pawn. Paulie just keeps on saying how much he does not trust Tiffany. Later with the others, Da'vonne says that they should have sent Tiffany home. James says that they should not have rocked the boat. When Tiffany joins them, they all go quiet, and then they all leave one by one. Tiffany asks Nicole why everyone leaves as soon as Tiffany enters a room. Natalie goes to check on Tiffany. Tiffany spills her guts to Natalie in the Have Not room, and Natalie tries to comfort her. Natalie did a great job of being a good listener, and trying to soothe Tiffany's anxieties.
Tiffany then asks Frank to talk to her. Frank tells Tiffany that he wanted to work with Tiffany, but Da'vonne told Frank that Tiffany was after him. Tiffany says that she is making a deal with the devil. Frank says he's not the devil. Tiffany tells Frank that everyone wanted Frank out. Frank says that they have to get Day out. Meanwhile Day walks in just then, and then back out. Da'vonne runs to the HOH room and tells them all that Tiffany and Frank had an intense conversation. Nicole came running down to the HOH room trying to act innocent. Nicole ask Tiffany if she wants to talk about anything. Nicole says that she is just checking to make sure everything is okay because Tiffany was talking with Frank. Da'vonne asks Tiffany to talk to her. Da'vonne and Tiffany had a circular conversation. Da'vonne tries to act like she is on Tiffany's side. Then Zakiyah comes in asking what's up. Tiffany says that all the time Tiffany tries to get any information, they don't want to talk to her. Tiffany says when they think they can get information from her, then they come around wanting to talk. Da'vonne tries to tell Tiffany that it's a game. Tiffany said that she has been playing this game completely wrong--passively. Tiffany says game on in DR.
Paulie gives his nominations: Tiffany and Natalie. Da'vonne smiles. Paulie says that the same votes that saved Tiffany last week won't be there this week. Paulie says that there are lots of similarities between Tiffany's game and Vanessa's. Tiffany is now gunning after Paulie and his minions. Natalie says she needs to stay on everyone's good graces. Tiffany talks to Frank, and says that the nomination speech was all an act. She tells him that last week they were all after Frank. Tiffany tells Frank that he should not trust Paulie. So Frank wants to win a Road Kill to get things going.
Time for the Road Kill competition. So it seems the RV smells really bad. The goal is to hang as many air fresheners within the time limit as possible. The air fresheners have to be hung in order by color.First is red, then blue, then yellow, then green. If at any time an air freshener hits the ground it is out of the game. Michelle really sucks at the game, and she says that the rope is as sensitive as Tiffany is. It looked like Natalie had most of her air fresheners on the ground. Road Kill reveal: Tiffany won with 31 air fresheners.
Tiffany is going to use the win to shake things up. Da'vonne, obviously, didn't win. That girl is an idiot. Tiffany tells Da'vonne that Tiffany won Road Kill. Then she winks at Da'vonne. Tiffany then tells Frank and Bridgette. Tiffany says that she is going for Corey. They think Corey sucks at competitions. If he wins POV, they talk about putting up Nicole. Time for the reveal of the nomination. Corey is nominated. He smiles like an idiot. Corey is hoping to keep the attention on Tiffany. Nicole is concerned about her own safety. Tiffany says that the beast is unleashed.
Sunday, July 17, 2016 -- Evening
Update on the BB HouseI won't be able to watch the show this evening, but here's the round-up of the BB house action. Paulie put up Tiffany and Natalie. Although Tiffany managed to get out of eviction this past week, she'e the target again this week. It seems after the flip on Thursday, and Tiffany NOT winning HOH, AND Frank gaining safety, Tiffany realized that she was on the outs. Tiffany and Frank joined forces, although Tiffany appeared to still favor Da'vonne. Well, Tiffany won the Road Kill competition, and she nominated Corey. Corey wound up winning the POV. Now who goes up in this place? It might be Da'vonne because Frank has been telling Tiffany how Da'vonne caused all the trouble. We won't know about that until Monday.
Also, on the feeds, it appears that some of house guests are wondering about someone coming back. I'll bet that the DR has been peppering them with ideas. We won't find out who is coming back from that until this coming Friday. I hope to watch tonight's show tomorrow, so we'll see what they show of the house's action.
Thursday, July 14, 2016 -- Evening
Frank Surprised?It seems on the feeds today that the votes turned against Bronte. That means that Tiffany will probably stay. Da'vonne is crazy. That said, I can't say that I'm a fan of Frank. I'm just not a fan of Da'vonne either.
Tonight's show started with post POV action. Frank think it is another successful week. Paul is okay with Bridgette not using the veto because he is the smallest target. Paul just wants a girl gone. Bronte will be shocked to be evicted. Da'vonne dislikes Tiffany, but thinks that Tiffany, who hasn't won comps, will get rid of Frank. James is dumb, and thinks that he should get rid of one of his team members. Da'vonne, James, and Michelle are pro-keeping Tiffany. Da'vonne tries to convince Nicole that Bronte would be more likely to get rid of them than Tiffany. Da'vonne is all excited because obviously, if Tiffany stays, Tiffany will win HOH, and Frank will be voted out. That's pretty illogical of them. I think that Frank might try to win HOH if Tiffany stays. Paulie wants to get rid of Tiffany because she is too emotion. Paulie convinces Zakiyah that Tiffany is a strategist.
James and Nicole don't think that Tiffany will go after them. Paulie is the only one who speaks sense. Paulie tries to tell them all that Tiffany has no loyalty to anyone. So if Frank goes out next week, who is next? Nicole seems to forget that they are in an alliance with Frank, and says that Frank will be targeting them next week. Uh, no! He thinks they are on the same side. Idiots!
Frank is noticing that people are walking out every time he comes in. Nicole and Frank talk, and Nicole says that it's very clear that Frank is after Da'vonne and Da'vonne is against Frank. Nicole has to figure out who to trust. Frank talks to Bridgette about getting together with Nicole and Corey for an alliance foursome. Nicole tells Frank to be careful around Michelle because she won't be good with Da'vonne. Frank doesn't realize that Michelle is close with Da'vonne. Frank says that NIcole wasn't sure about talking with Michelle about it. In front of Da'vonne, Michelle says that Frank said Nicole knew about getting rid of Da'vonne. Da'vonne thinks that Nicole knew about it. Meanwhile Tiffany just sits around doing nothing.
Then Michelle and Nicole talk to Paulie about getting Bronte out. Paulie now thinks that Frank will be thrown with Tiffany stays. The others try to convince Paulie that Tiffany will not be coming after any of them. I always think that sort of thinking is stupid.
It's time to talk to the nominees. Paul goes first. He talks about being on the block so much. Tiffany calls out Frank as a dictator, and that he was going to get his. Bronte is shocked and says she's not in the business of being mean. Time for the vote:
- Frank evicts Tiffany
- Natalie evicts Tiffany
- James evicts Tiffany
- Michelle evicts Bronte
- Nicole evicts Bronte
- Zakiyah evicts Bronte
- Corey evicts Bronte
- Paulie evicts Tiffany
- Da'vonne evicts Bronte
Next up is the HOH competition. We found out about the memory wall showing 16 different pictures of the previous three evictees in various locations in Europe. Question 1 got Corey, James, Natalie, and Zakiyah out. Question 2 everyone got right. Question 3 got rid of Da'vonne, Tiffany, and Michelle. Paulie got the last questions right, so everyone on Category 4, such as Frank, are safe. Ha, Da'vonne. Whatcha gonna do now? This will really get things going in the house.
Bridgette's ankle is better, and Paulie says that with power comes great responsiblity. Paul is asked if he would shave the beard to stay in the house. Answer yes. James is missing his little girl and his cat, Gizmo. Next Friday will be the Battle Back, when the Battle Back episode is show at 8 pm. The returning house guest will then shock the houseguest by going into the house. Nicole looks scared as she talks to Frank because Nicole was an idiot to listen to Da'vonne. HA!
Thursday, July 14, 2016 -- Morning
Wednesday Night ShowLast night's show started after the Roadkill reveal. Bronte is stupid, and she thinks that the winner was Paulie. Frank says that Tiffany is his target, but Bronte is plan B. Frank is still deluded that people want to get rid of Tiffany. The two silly girls (Bridgette and Bronte) talk about Bronte's nomination. Bridgette is pissed because she thinks someone is trying to sabotage Bridgette's HOH. Ha! She never had any influence. Meanwhile Frank tells Paul he is safe, but Paul doesn't buy it. Bronte cries because no one knows who she is. She's a Super Nerd! Then Bronte cries, and says that she has to talk to Bridgette and Michelle to tell them her big secret. She's a math wiz! HAHAHAHAHAH! Bronte wants to work with the NSA using prime numbers to fight terrorists. Bridgette is awestruck. "Do you know calculua?" What a bunch of idiots!!! Frank talks to them about using him to win the POV to take Bronte off the block.
James and Da'vonne talk about the girls not knowing about Frank. James wants to tell Natalie about Frank winning the Roadkill. Then we have a silly segment with James and Natalie talking on the phone. Natalie says she won't tell Bridgette and Bronte because she does not want to get James in trouble. Natalie is surprised at how stupid Bridgette and Bronte are. Bridgette really trusts Frank. Bridgette tells Natalie that Bridgette is suspicious of James.
Time to pick for veto: Bridgette pulls Bronte's name, and Bronte chose Natalie. Then Bridgette pulled Paulie. Frank was not happy about Bronte picking Natalie because if Natalie wins and takes Bronte off, Frank has to put an eight pack member up. This is not how Da'vonne envisioned this week. Da'vonne doesn't want to be backdoored, which I guess this would technically be, although not really.
The competition is the recipe comp. The participants will be shown a list of ingredients, and then they will have to put those ingredients in the correct order. Not only does the winner get the veto, but an Outback meal. They are shown a list, and have to pour the middle ingredient in the list. Natalie says she's basically dumb. Paul says he will make a song of the ingredient. Bronte is hoping she can count. However, she can't. Both she and Natalie are out. Paulie is out next. Tiffany is out next. Frank and James celebrate. Bridgette wins POV. Frank and Bridgette tried to do a celebration jump. Unfortunately, Bridgette sprained her ankle.
Bridgette has crutches from a sprained ankle. Tiffany cries because she is smarter than everyone in the house, and she should have won. Natalie tells Bridgette and Bronte that if Bronte comes down, she knows that she will definitely go up in Bronte's place. Bronte and Bridgette think that Natalie is withholding info. Bronte realizes that Natalie only talks to James, so Bronte goes to James. James realizes that Bronte is trying to get information out of him. James tells Bronte that he doesn't realize know who will go up in Bronte's place.
Category 4 gets the dinner. Bridgette gets to invite another team, and she takes Big Sister because it's Zakiyah's birthday. Also Bridgette wants to patch up things between Frank and Da'vonne. The people in the house complain because they did not get the dinner. Nicole is so jealous. So that was the Outback advertisement.
James tells Natalie about Bronte asking him about who won Roadkill. Natalie says she can smell a jerk from a mile away, which is funny because people complain about Frank's stench. Well, Frank tells Bridgette that he won Roadkill. Bridgette trusts Frank. Frank says that he wants Frank in his pocket. Frank decides to be clean about everything. He tells Bridgette that he put her up in the first week. Bridgette is an idiot. She says Frank knows best.
POV ceremony: Paul says that Bridgette should take him off to show friendship. Tiffany says that she will take any decision. Bronte says the same. Bronte is uncomfortable, and she hopes Tiffany goes out. Paul hopes he is safe. Tiffany doesn't know who to trust. Da'vonne says that she may try to keep Tiffany to help her get Frank out. Not like Da'vonne or Tiffany are good at comps.
Wednesday, July 13, 2016 -- Evening
Pokemon Go!I did not watch Big Brother this evening because I was out and about playing Pokemon Go. I admit that I'm an addict, and I have to admit that I thought of the poor house guests who are not going to get a chance to experience the thrill of the hunt until they leave the house. I'm already at level 11, and I only started late on Sunday.
I'll try to watch Big Brother in the morning, but I already know that Bridgette did not use the POV. Nominations stayed the same. The house is turning against Frank because of Da'vonne. The only thing I have to say about that is that CBS showed Frank more at fault. We didn't see Da'vonne repeated calling Frank a douche, which he told her to stop. Then he called her a slut. And Frank had smacked Da'vonne's ass a few times before the crying incident, and Da'vonne didn't say anything then. Of course, we aren't in the house, so it's hard for us to understand the tension of being with others 24/7. It seems that Da'vonne is trying to convince people to keep Tiffany to get rid of Frank. However, I think that if they keep Tiffany, they will alert Frank that there is discord, and he will probably battle harder for HOH. Plus, he will definitely battle to win the Battle Back if he does get knocked out.
We'll find out tomorrow if it is Tiffany or Brante who goes. It all depends on who gets in the right ear at the right time.
Monday, July 11, 2016 -- Morning
Roadkill and Other StuffThe show started with Bridgette giggling over winning HOH. Bridgette says that her game play is friendship. Frank says that he is safe, but he wants to steer Bridgette towards Tiffany. Da'vonne realizes that Bridgette as HOH is the same as Frank. Bridgette seems really confused and unsure of what to do, and Frank knows he can take advantage of her. Da'vonne, meanwhile, comforts Zakiyah that it will be okay. Bridgette, Natalie, and Bronte all squeal when they talk, and they all say really stupid stuff. All three seem like brainless boobs. Frank assures Da'vonne that she is not on slop, and that he will try to get Tiffany and Paul up.
Tiffany talks to Corey about how she may go up because Frank will have Bridgette put her up. Bridgette meanwhile doesn't know who to put up. Nicole wants to put up Corey or Nicole because she doesn't know them very well. Frank says that she should know that he wants Tiffany to go up. Frank tries to convince her that she should go for Tiffany and Paul.
Nicole and James giggle about Corey being the guy for Nicole. Nicole thinks he is the best looking guy ever. Nicole admits that sometimes she has no clue what Corey is saying because she really isn't listening. Meanwhile Frank says that he thinks he is the cutest thing ever, and BB shows Frank as a prankster. Nicole says that sometimes Frank's jokes go a bit too far. BB then shows Frank comments about the women. Da'vonne says that Frank is pushing her, and she is tired of it.
We get to see Bridgette's HOH room, for the first time this season. Da'vonne cries because Frank tells her "shut your damn mouth, woman." Da'vonne claims that she used to be one of Frank's biggest fans, but she isnt' any more. She goes on about how disrespectful Frank is. Someone should say something to him. We don't see it, but we hear the smack. Then Da'vonne tells Frank to stop hitting her on her ass. Frank goes in as Corey and Paulie are comforting Da'vonne. Frank doesn't realize what he did. Da'vonne goes to the DR to cry and complain. Da'vonne said that she never gave Frank the permission to hit her on the ass. Da'vonne says that Frank is not worth risking her game over. Da'vonne cries that she doesn't want to jeopardize her game. Da'vonne promises to get Frank's ass.
The next day, Frank says that he has always pinched his mom's and nana's butt, so he thought it was a sign of affection. Frank goes to apologize to Da'vonne. He says that he didn't mean it in a bad way. Da'vonne says that she realizes that his intentions were okay, and that he didn't mean anything by it. Da'vonne said that she appreciated him coming to her. In DR, she said that she didn't accept it at all.
Time for the nomination ceremony. Bridgette nominates Paul and Tiffany. She has some lame answer, saying, it was a game move, come up and talk about it over hot cheetoes or hot muffins. Gosh, Bridgette, Natalie, and Bronte are really lame. Paul thought he was Bridgette's friend. Da'vonne thought that Frank not putting her up was a good sign. Bronte tells Bridgette about the interaction between Frank and Da'vonne. Bronte says that everyone blames Frank, which makes Bridgette say that she doesn't want people to think she does not have a backbone. Tiffany says that if she survives the week, she will be after Frank.
The phone rings in the phone booth. It's a James and Natalie flirt segment. Lame! Finally, it's time for the BB Roadkill competition. The competition is to honk horns. The participant has to press the correct sequence of horns in the shortest time. They have to get eight horns accurate. James says he has the memory of a fish, and that makes him as good as the girls who also seem like idiots. Evetually, everyone gets it. It's time to reveal the winner, who is Frank. It seems he did it in 56 seconds. I would love to know the others' times. I get the feeling that most of the girls are really losers. What sucks is that they can't win competitions, but they aren't getting voted out.
Paul doesn't care who won, he just hopes that a bigger target goes up. Zakiyah doesn't understand Frank, but Tiffany explains that Frank is just saying the same thing he did last time. Frank tells Nicole and Corey that he won. Nicole feels great because then she knows she won't be the third nominee. Frank tells James, Zakiyah, and Michelle that he is going to put up Bronte and then Natalie if she comes down. The Roadkill reveal shows us Bronte as we already know. Bronte knows that she is outnumbered. She feels defeated. I don't like Bronte, and she, Bridgette, and Natalie are such silly, stupid girls.
Sunday, July 10, 2016 -- Afternoon
Frank Wins AgainFrank is not in good graces in the BB house. Everyone dislikes him, but he doesn't realize it. Unfortunately Frank is in charge. As we will find out in tonight's episode, Frank will win Roadkill. He talked Bridgette into putting up Paul and Tiffany, and Frank puts up Bronte. Bridgette won the POV, so she will probably let the nominations stay the same. Unfortunately, Bridgette sprained her ankle after the Roadkill competition, and she has been hobbling around on crutches. Tiffany is the target this week, and she'll probably go home on Thursday. Well, she will go to compete against the Victor and get booted then. We'll have to find out how the Battle Back works out.
Wednesday, July 6, 2016 -- Evening
Victor's Goose is CookedTonight we get to see the veto competition, which will result in Victor being backdoored. Paulie says that everyone knows that Victor is the Roadkill winner. Tiffany is super confused, and she doesn't know who to trust. Tiffany not only looks like her sister, Vanessa, but she also sounds like her. Victor tells Natalie that he won the Roadkill, and that his goal is to get the votes to evict Tiffany. Victor is delusional. We then see Michelle comfort Tiffany, and it is shocking how she sounds like Vanesa. This is why there is a conspiracy theory that Tiffany is Vanessa. Da'vonne tells Tiffany not to worry because Tiffany has numbers.
Tiffany then goes to Paulie to cry about how she is now on the block. Tiffany goes on about how she can't trust any body. Tiffany does her best Vanessa impression. Da'vonne says that she says Vanessa in Tiffany: the emotional rollercoaster and the paranoia. Meanwhile Bronte tells Natalie that she hopes everyone votes out Tiffany. Then Frank is talking with Pauli in the HOH room, and Frank sees Tiffany as the weak link. Frank tries to explain to Tiffany that she can't win the POV because if she does, Victor gets to nominate the next person. Da'vonne says that if Victor doesn't got up, they should consider getting rid of Tiffany and make Paulie the number 8. We then see Tiffany arguing with Frank about his tone towards her. Later on the feeds, Da'vonne will blame the talk about getting rid of Tiffany as a Frank idea, when it is obvious it is Da'vonne's idea.
Paulie talks with Paul. Victor tells Paulie that Paul is not sure about Frank or Paulie. Paul then has to dig his way out. Paul can't believe that Victor was such an idiot to tell the others what Paul said. Paulie believes Paul. Time to pick players for veto. The hope is that Victor is not selected. Paulie pulls the two chips. First, he picks Da'vonne. Then, Paulie picks Paul. Victor says that if he is picked, he can win the competition and take Paul off the block. Paul is really between a rock and a hard place. Paul tries to act really dumb and not understand. Frank pats Paul's back over doing what Frank wanted. Frank says he doesn't feel bad because Jozea and Victor tried to play the vets. Frank says that the only problem is if Tiffany wins the veto.
Time for the veto competition. It's a technotronic competition. They have to look for letters, which have a point value. Then they have to spell a word, and the person with the highest point value wins. They have 12 minutes, but if ther is a tie, it will go to the person with the quickest time. Tiffany wonders if she should try to win the veto. Da'vonne comments on how she does not like feet. Bronte is really confused about being a target. Paulie is a fan of spelling. They get sprayed with something. Tiffany tries to win. Da'vonne realizes that Tiffany is trying to count her letters. They start with Paul. He spelled Slouched for 9 points. Tiffany spelled twinkling for 10 points. Frank is pissed at Tiffany. Da'vonne spelled redemption for 9 points. Zakiyah spelled duration for 6 points. Bronte spelled powerful for 10 points. Bronte ran in before Tiffany, so she is now in the lead. Paulie spelled sustainability for 10 points and he was first to buzz in. So he wins the POV. Da'vonne knows that Tiffany was trying to win instead of throwing the competition.
Paulie says you have to double check your spelling to Nicole. Da'vonne talks to Frank, and Da'vonne says that Tiffany was looking at Da'vonne's words to bet her by one point. Frank say Tiffany is shady. Natalie tries to tell stupid Bronte that Bronte isn't the number one target. Natalie and Bronte only trust each other. Paulie plans on pulling down Paul because Paul has been true to his word. I'm sort of liking Paulie. Paulie says that he is going to take Paul down because Paul did what he said he would. Victor shows up then, and it is obvious that the tense grows in the room, but Victor is oblivious. Then we get a stupid James prank. I hate James. Nicole, Michelle, Zakiyah, and Da'vonne talk about Tiffany, and how she is like her sister with the paranoia. Da'vonne thinks they have been given a gift, and that they should do a sneak attack and get rid of Tiffany. Victor and Paul play pool and talk about how everyone is super sketchy. Victor says that he thinks Bronte is the target. Paul asks Victor how sure he is, and Victor is pretty sure that Natalie will go up if someone comes down. Paul is really frustrated because Victor is being so blind and stupid.
Time for the veto meeting. Tiffany gives her spiel. Then Bronte squeals. Paul says that he hopes to continue to create friendship with Paulie. Paulie vetos Paulie. Then Paulie puts up Victor.
Sunday, July 3, 2016 -- Evening
Paulie is HOHIt's time for the Big Brother show. On the feeds, we know that Paulie won HOH, but we finally get to see the competition now. Natalie admits that it is important that they win, but she's the first out. Paul is pissed, and he realizes that he has to win HOH. They have to lock in the berries in 10 row columns. If they fall off before the row is locked, the team loses that row. Frank tells Victor that he had to vote out Jozea to win win the competition. Victor doesn't know if he should believe that Paulie is okay with Victor.
Paul is upset because Da'vonne and Zakiyah are moving so slowly. Natalie is cheering on her team. Tiffany jumps off because she is going so slow, and Corey is so fast. Corey fall, and the Freakazoids are out of the same. As it is getting close between Category 4 and Team Unicorn, James falls, making his team use a slew of berries in the final row. Paulie won HOH because he got the big blue berry. Frank thinks it's perfect because Paulie can take out Victor. Paul thinks the BB universe hates him. Victor cries in DR about Jozea going home.
Paul realizes that he and Jozea did not have the numbers that they thought. James goal is to lay low, and hope that Victor and Bronte get on the block. Natalie is crying, and James tells her to keep her cool because she should not worry about going up. James tells her that he has her. Bronte begs Paul to believe her that Natalie did not vote Jozea out. Paul tells Bronte that it is okay that Da'vonne and Zakiyah voted against Jozea. Paul tells Bronte that he will take care of things. Paul and Victor talk about winning Road Kill and POV. Victor tries to tell Paulie that he should be believe in Paul and Victor's loyalty. Victor tries to get Paulie to see that there are more females left in the game. Victor says that he and Paulie are the strongest competitor, and Bronte is a strong female competitor. Paulie wants to make some deals with Paul. Paul doesn't like the deal that Paulie makes him of going on the block with Victor. Paul tells Paulie that it's Paulie's HOH and decision.
James is flirting with all the girls in the house. We find out that he had a huge crush on Nicole. Then he has a thing with Natalie, then Bridgette, and Michelle. The guy is something else, and not in a good sense. Time for nominations. We don't get to hear a lot about the strategy Paulie had in picking them. The first nomination is Paul. The second is Bronte. Paulie says that he put them up because they were gunning for him last week. Paulie decided on Bronte to keep Victor calm. He wants to keep Victor calm and then backdoor him. Bronte decides not to trust a single boy in the house.
Paul says that he loves Vic, but Paul also wants to stay in the house. Natalie tells Bronte to stay calm. Bronte says that she has to be nice to people even though she doesn't like a lot of them. Victor doesn't know if this is good for him or if he is going to be a backdoor. Paul pretends that he doesn't know that Victor might be a backdoored. Victor really wants to win BB Road Kill
Corey and Natalie are in bed and talking with Victor. Corey talks about how much money he spend on Christmas. Corey go on and on about Christmas and how happy the Christmas spirit makes you. He has this weird happy look on his face. Then we get more James pranks. I hate the pranks.
Time for the BB Road Kill. They have to mark the six items that correctly add up to $18. This should be easy, but these people are really stupid. The person who does it the quickest wins. Tiffany is actually a high school math teacher, but she can't count. I have never seen such a stupid bunch of people. As Michelle says, why can't she add basic fifth grade math. Paul wants to win the BB Road Kill. Victor is super nervous. Victor says that he is not only beautiful, but he is also a finance major. After, they all go to their tackle boxes to see if they won. Frank was anticipating a win. Nope, loser. Victor won. Victor wants to use this to his best advantage.
Victor now has to nominate someone for Road Kill. Victor tells Paulie that he won the BB Road Kill. Paulie says that gives him another reason to get rid of Victor. Victor thinks this will show Paulie and Frank that he can be trusted and keep himself safe. Paul tells Victor to not tell anyone. Paul tells Victor to trust him and not to tell anyone. Paul tries to tell Victor that they are sitting ducks because it was 7-4. Victor doesn't think so. He wants to nominate James. Victor goes and talks to Frank and Paulie. He says this is him showing Frank and Paulie that Victor can be trusted. Victor says that he is thinking of either Tiffany or James. It's time to gather in the living room for the Road Kill reveal. Category Four is safe this week because Paulie is HOH. It's Tiffany.
Thursday, June 30, 2016 -- Evening
Eviction NIght!I've been looking forward to eviction night because I want to see Jozea get a shock. Also, CBS announced that Julie Chen would reveal a shocking surprise tonight. I think it might have something to do with Glenn being sequestered, which could mean that one of the evicted house guests would return.
Yep, as Julie started the show, she commented that the games of Glenn and the next evictee will not be over. The show started with the action post POV ceremony. Paulie isn't worried about Bridgette being the nominee. Frank says there were only four people left to put up. Jozea says that he's glad that Paul is off the block because that is another vote against Paulie. Bridgette says that everyone is telling her she is safe, but she is afraid that the next minute she will be out the door. Jozea says that his intuition is always right, and he's sure that it is Paulie who won the road kill. Paul and Josea think they are sitting solid. Paul tells Jozea to have a heart felt talk with Nicole in case there is a tie. Jozea thinks it will be a landslide in his favor. Jozea and Nicole have an awkward talk.
Da'vonne and Zakiyah tell Nicole about Bridgette being a spy. Nicole has to keep her eyes open for Bridgette spying. Nicole, Zakiyah, Da'vonne, and Tiffany talk about taking girl power to the end. They talk about how they can't be blinded by men. So Nicole, Tiffany, Michele, Zakiyah, and Da'vonne are the Fatal 5. Another James prank, putting mayo into the face lotion. Dumb!
Natalie, Bronte, and Bridgette talk about how no one has approached Bronte or Natalie about voting Jozea out. Bronte says that if Jozea goes home, the other side of the house is stronger than she anticipated. Jozea, Paul, and Bridgette talk dirt about Nicole in front of Zakiyah. Zakiyah says they should not trust Bridgette. CBS tries to make it seem that the girls might be thinking of getting rid of Bridgette. But there is no plan to do that.
CBS shows Victor making comments about Nicole eating too much cheese and stepping all over her over long pants, making them dirty. James said that last season everyone got along, but Natalie is all upset over Victor. James thinks that they are all being crazy. Paul walks into the room with James and the girls, and James said they are doing girl talk. Paul got really upset because James said they were doing girl talk. Bronte tries to tell Jozea, Paul, and Victor to shut up. What a bunch of whiners.
It's time for the brief statements. Jozea says that he has been honest and bold from the start in the house. Paulie says that it has been a pleasure knowing people. Bridgette says that she hopes she is super sweet and wants to stay.
Time for the vote:
- Victor evicts Paulie
- Zakiyah evicts Jozea
- Paul evicts Paulie
- Frank evicts Jozea
- Da'vonne evicts Jozea
- Michelle evicts Jozea
- Bronte evicts Paulie
- Natalie evicts Paulie
- James evicts Jozea
- Tiffany evicts Jozea
- Corey evicts Jozea
Julie asks Jozea about being quiet. Jozea says that he was betrayed, especially by Nicole. Julie said that Jozea said he was a messiah and in charge of the house. Julie said that obviously wasn't the case. Julie asked Jozea why he so openly targeted Nicole when she was HOH. Julie asked Jozea what he hoped to accomplish with his house meeting. Jozea said that being such a wonderful leader and messiah, that was what he needed to do. Da'vonne says that he lost her when Jozea started the messiah stuff. Paul claims he is going to Rambo it for Jozea. Jozea says that he would go into the house tight lipped, and Julie tells him that Jozea would have another chance to get into the game. It will be a Battle Back competition. So Jozea will battle Glenn. The winner will battle the next evictee while the loser goes home. The first five evictees will be part of the Battle Back.
Time for the HOH competition. The person who wins HOH wins safety for his entire team. They have to go over the balance beams, and bring it back to put in the column. If the person falls off the beam, that person's berries dump. The first team to get 40 berries wins, and they get to choose the person who will be HOH. Natalie is the first to fall, and she is out. Corey made it back. So does Victor and Paul. This competition is going to continue on the live feeds.
Thursday, June 30, 2016 -- Morning
Jozea the MessiahI wasn't feeling well last night, so I made it an early night. However, I was anxious to catch up with Big Brother, so I watched this morning. From the live feeds, I know that Jozea has been delusional, and I have been wondering how much of it they will show. After all, delusional house guests are the best entertainment!
The show started with post road kill nomination. Jozea says the Paul thing is a blow. Jozea says that Paulie has to go. Ha! Paul says that he will surprise everyone in the veto competition. Jozea goes around telling everyone it was Michelle because she looked down during the nomination ceremony. Frank says in DR that it is ludicrous. Jozea thought it was Paulie, but now Michelle. Jozea says that he has the newbies on his side and some of the vets, AND he is going to win the POV, so there. Nicole tried to talk to Paul to make sure he knew it wasn't her. Jozea goes on about how it's all guys on the block. Jozea talks to a bunch of people who know that Frank won the road kill. Even Da'vonne comments on how delusional Jozea is.
Bridgette and Paulie are being friendly, and that worries Paul because Paulie is the target. Paul talks to Victor that he thinks the road kill winner may have been Bridget. Victor thinks that Bridgette is flip flopping. These folks are really losers. Bronte and Natalie talk about voting Paulie out. Bronte says she's a math girl, and she wants to be where the numbers are. The problem is that she isn't. The pair giggle over Paulie being so gorgeous--not!
Time to pick the nominees. Nicole gets to pick the two chips. If she picks the chip of herself or one of the nominees, they get to pick someone. Da'vonne is the first picked. Nicole picked herself, so she picked Corey. Paul just rolled his eyes. Paul appears to be jealous of Corey, saying that he is following Nicole around like a giant shadow. Frank and James celebrate the picks.
Frank goes to console Jozea. Frank tells Jozea that Nicole had to pick Corey. Frank has Jozea fooled. Jozea should have watched some of those BB seasons that CBS gave them.
James is back to his old tricks. While Paul sleeps and snores, James puts whipped cream in his hand. They had trouble getting him up, but eventually, they got him. Time for the competition. The backyard is setup like a dog park. The players are dressed up as dogs. They have to spin 15 times. They then have 44 seconds to stack doggie treats between pillars on a dog house. They have to get back to spin in the 45 seconds, or they are out. Paul says it has to be him or Jozea who wins. Da'vonne felt like she had 13 tequilla shots. Paul thinks he can win. Jozea says that because he is a dancer, he will win. Meanwhile Corey and Nicole are basically losers. It seems Da'vonne is the only one who is good. Jozea decides to build a doggie heart. Paulie thinks he has it. Paul won with his stacking method. Now Frank has to come up with a replacement.
Da'vonne tells Paul it is tradition to dance in the storage room. Jozea has an amazing smile on his face because it is a win for him and his team. Paulie's fate lies in others hands now. Bridgette is stressed because she knows that she is one of the possible people who can go up. Tiffany tells Bridgette that everyone loves her so she should not worry. Tiffany tells Paulie that Vanessa is her sister. Like they don't look like each other. Paulie is relieved to have another ally, since he is on the block with big mouthed clown, Jozea. Jozea tells Frank that he observes everything and knows everything. Jozea says he like a CEO. Jozea knows that Frank will join his team and do as Jozea says. Frank doesn't even think that Jozea can spell Messiah. Frank can't wait to see Jozea's expression on eviction night. Neither can I.
Jozea says that as the leader of the house, he has to talk to everyone to get them all on the same page. Da'vonne is sent to get Zakiyah. Da'vonne made it obvious that she was getting Zakiyah. Natalie send Bridgette up to infiltrate. James decides to crash the meeting. Jozea tells everyone in his meeting that everyone is cool, and Paulie needs to go. James says in DR that when Jozea pulls everyone in the room, he should make sure they are on the same side. Jozea says if they stick together, there would be no wars. He says he feels like Obama. Bronte says that Bridgette was set upstairs to listen. Zakiyah plans on outing her. Bridgette says she's sick of hearing of Jozea's craziness. Bridgette says that she is tired of hearing Jozea's talk. In front of Jozea, Paul, and Victor, Paulie asked about the house meeting. Jozea says that if he wants somebody out, they are out. Jozea says that he has freedom of speech. Jozea says that he runs the house, so just shut up. Jozea says he has nothing to hide. Jozea says that he should hold meetings whenever he wants.
Paul calls the road kill winner a coward and says that he will track down the winner. The winner will regret putting up Paul. It's time for the veto meeting. Paul takes himself off, and Bridgette goes up. Jozea's mouth dropped. Bridgette says that she is going after the road kill winner. Jozea says he's chill because his alliance runs the house. Frank hopes that Jozea's ego can fit through the door. Da'vonne says eithe the messiah or the spy goes.
Sunday, June 26, 2016 -- Evening
Road KillTonight we got to see the special Sunday competition. It's called Big Brother Road Kill, and from the live feeds, we find out that Paul was nominated. Yep, you read that right; there will be three nominations this summer. Paul won the POV, but there will be a replacement nomination. Jozea is still the target. Tonight, we get to see how Road Kill went down.
Nicole went through her strategy, and she hopes that Paulie does not go home. Paulie is trying to stay positive, and he tells his brother not to worry. Paul is happy that he is not up there this week. Victor thinks that Nicole's move is ballsy because both Jozea and Paulie will be gunning for her. Da'vonne thinks it's funny that the Mesiah is going up on the block. Cody and Paulie go to talk with Nicole. Nicole apologizes to Cody on the feeds.
Paul tells them that they have to think clearly. Jozea tells Bronte that Nicole better hope that Jozea doesn't have a power and can go against her. Paulie makes fun in the DR about Jozea telling everyone in the house that he wanted Nicole out, and that now he is shocked about going up. I think that Jozea thought he was more than he is.
Zakiyah went up to talk to Nicole about how Jozea has to go. She lets Nicole know that Jozea was after her. Nicole admits to being scared when she sees Jozea coming to the HOH room. Nicole tried to explain that she had limited options. She tries to say that he should not be mad at her because Nicole did not know Jozea. Jozea says he's not a butt kisser. Nicole said that she tried to put up the strong people from each team to get her team further. That makes tons of sense. Nicole wants Jozea gone.
Everyone has to gather in the living room. The competition will be after the nomination ceremony. Each goes individually into the RV, and the winner gets to nominate a third person. Victor wants to put up a vet. When the RV gets into the yard, and it will beep, and every person has to compete, and everyone is up for nomination, including someone from that person's team. It's done anonymously. As Paul says, you won't know who hates you.
The Road Kill Challenge sounds great. NIcole comments on how really happy Jozea is. Jozea tells Victor and Paul to put up Frank. They think Frank will be an easy target. James is worried about Frank. Da'vonne whines about how the odds are against the vets favor. Nicole isn't sure if her players would put her up. She doesn't think they will. Zakiyah and Da'vonne talk about how they are both black women. Da'vonne recruits Zakiyah to her side. Zakiyah thinks the newbies have been erratic. Michelle went to Da'vonne looking for an alliance. Da'vonne thinks they have solid numbers. Da'vonne thinks the numbers look good for the vets. Corey comes up with Elite Eight. Frank came up with Eight Pack.
The Raod Kill RV is there. The goal is to take off their clothes and get to swimwear while driving. They have to keep three buttons pushed down. Time on the clock moves quicker the fewer buttons you hold down. The person who gets to swimwear and pushes the red button with lowest time wins. Paulie to hold all the buttons down. James can't reach the buttons because he's short. Jozea almost took off his trunks. Victor took two hands off the buzzer to rip off shirt and jacket. The winner can reveal he/she won or not. Jozea did not win, and he hopes for Paul or Victor. Paul thought he won. He lost. Frank won with a time of 2:37.881.
Frank doesn't have to stress now about being nominated. As he says, he didn't have to work that hard since season 14. Frank tells James that Frank won. They celebrate. Paul, Victor, Jozea, Paulie, and Bronte talk about who might have won. Frank tells Paul and Jozea that he didn't win. Frank said that the thought he had all three buttons down. Jozea says he reads faces and he is always right, and Jozea says Paulie won. Frank celebrates with James and Da'vonne. Frank tells them all to stay low key. Natalie and Bridget talk about an all girl alliance. They are both losers, and they should be excellent at playing dumb. Bronte is really excited to work with Bridgette and Natalie. They decide to call themselves the Spy Girls. Natalie is Flirty Spy. Bronte is Wifey Spy. Bridgette is Spunky Spy. I am sickened. Tiffany can't believe the three are trying to form an alliance in front of her.
Frank tals to his alliance about picking between Paul and Bridgette. They think Paul so Paul plays for himself instead of taking Jozea off. Paulie, Michelle, Bridgette, and Frank have to go to the DR to get their costume punishment. They have to wear pixels. For a week. It is lame. They have flesh colored underwear holding it in. Paulie says it's easier to flirt with the ladies. It's time for the third nominee, and it's Paul. Jozea is not happy. Paul says he is going to fix everything. Jozea says the house loves him, so they should use the veto on him.
Thursday, June 23, 2016 -- Evening
First EliminationI cannot wait to find out who is going home tonight. From the show intro, after the three group members choose the HOH between them, there will be nominations. Nicole thinks she will be the first person evicted. Glenn was not expecting it to be like this. Tiffany is upset, and Da'vonne talks to her--trying to get the secret out of Tiffany. Tiffany starts crying like Vanessa and reveals the secret to Da'vonne. Meanwhile Paul goes to talk with Corey and Glenn. Paul wants the returners out. Corey isn't sure that he agrees with that strategy. Corey thinks that might be good for Paul's strategy, but not for his.
Meanwhile, Frank, James, and Da'vonne start talking strategy. Frank says that the returners have to nurture their teammates. Nicole is saying this time she wants to play Big Brother. Nicole talks with Corey because she wants to be HOH. Nicole is trying to make Corey think it's his idea to nominate her. Corey falls for it.
Finally, it's time for the competition. Each has to climb a tree on their island and get a coconut. They have to place the coconuts on the SOS on the island. Because the base moves, the coconuts can fall off. The last person in the competition goes home. Tiffany tries to stay close to her tree. Frank notices that the newbies are cheering for everyone but Nicole. Glenn knocks out some coconuts. Nicole has one left, and she gets it--finishing first.
Tiffany keeps on losing coconuts when she climbs the tree, but then she finished second. Glenn gets his last coconut in, and slowly reaches for his flag, but Corey rushes. It was a photo finish. Corey got the flag first. He is crushed. Tiffany, Corey, and Nicole talk about who will be the first HOH< and it's Nicole. Paul looks pissed, and he says so at the end. Everyone gets to say good-bye to Glenn. Glenn was proud to be part of BB this summer. Bronte talks, and she is annoying.
Paul and Bridgette asked Corey why he wasn't HOH. Paul is really pissed, and I don't really like him.
Paulie, is in the HOH room talking with Nicole and James. Nicole thinks that Paulie could be an ally. Paulie said that he has a connections to the returner because of his brother Cody. The newbies are talking about who is going to be a target. Victor goes up to ask Nicole what her strategy is. Victor takes off his shirt, and Nicole can't think. Victor tells Nicole that Jozea is coming after her.
James goes up to the HOH and pretends that he's Victor. Nicole is in the shower, and Nicole doesn't realize that it's James. Oh that James! What a trickster! Or maybe Nicole is an idiot. the Have Nots are shown the Have Not room and slop. Later, Da'vonne and Jozea are out in the backyard, and Jozea calls himself the Messiah. Then Jozea spills all his strategy to Da'vonne about targeting Nicole, then James, then Frank. He says he will save Da'vonne for last. Jozea is an idiot. Da'vonne runs up to tell Nicole. Nicole later told Corey her idea to get target Jozea. Nicole thinks that she should put up Paulie so he can win veto and take out Jozea.
Nicole talks to Paulie about him being a pawn because she doesn't want to alienate him. NIcole, Frank, James, and Da'vonne say that they need someone strong to go against him. All the returners try to convince Paulie that they have his back. Nicole says that Paulie does have a point. Nicole says it's a tough decision and she has to think things through. Nicole nominates Jozea and Paulie. Nicole says it's not an easy decision, and she decided to pick a strong player from each team. Paulie says in DR that Cody will kill him if Paulie goes home first. Jozea says that he rules the house though so he will be staying.
Wednesday, June 22, 2016 -- Evening
Welcome Back Big Brother!Summer is not summer for me without Big Brother! And I have been anticipating this year's season. Tonight's show started with Julie Chen giving us a quick overview of the game. It seems that there will be four competitions and a house guest going home before the summer begins. Four house guests are also hidden somewhere in the house. We met Natalie first. Then there was Paulie, who is Cody's brother. It seems Paulie played in the MLS. Bronte has a really annoying voice. She's supposed to be a math whiz, but she does not know what 9x9 is. (see her interview with Jeff.) Victor is a gym manager, and has long flowing locks. He still lives with mommy and daddy. Zakiyah is a school teacher who shoots. Corey is a baseball coach.
Glenn is the senior citizen, who used to be a police officer. Bridgette is an ER nurse. Jozea is a hair dresser. Michelle wants us to eat well, but she's also afraid of ghosts. Paul has a long beard and a mohawk. He owns a clothing shop. Tiffany has huge boobs, and she is Vanessa Russo's sister. She says she's smart but more stable than her sister. Tiffany says she will flirt with whomever gets her further.
I really hope that it's not Cody and Vanessa who are coming back into the house. i think it's going to be something like that though. The 12 house guests are meeting Julie. The first four in are Natalie, Victor, Michelle, and Paul. The house looks really cool. Victor thinks Natalie is hot, and that they will hook up. Bronte, Zakiyah, Paulie, and Glenn are next. Paul says his ears are laughing when he hears Bronte. She sounds like she has been sucking on helium. The rooms are made up to look like different countries. Corey, Tiffany, Brigette, and Jozea are the last to enter.
Bronte is feeling overwhelmed, and she is really annoying and ugly. They note that the nomination chairs are labelled departures. Bronte is really annoying. Victor has the hots for Natalie, who has the hots for Corey. Corey thinks he can have a bromance with Victor. Paul likes Zakiyah. They are all mixed up. Paulie is planning on loud Paul going first. Jozea says to Glenn that 50 is the new 20, but says the opposite in the diary room. Michelle thinks that Tiffany looks like Vanessa Rousso. Michelle is on the ball. Bronte talks some more, annoying!
Time for the first "big" twist of the summer. Julie tells them there will be three twists. The first twist is that four stowaways in the BB house that have been there since they moved in. The four are competing for the half million dollar prize. Bronte talks. She's annoying. Nicole from season 16 pops out of a suitcase. Idiot! The next person who pops out is James from the last season. Oh my gosh, the boring! Da'vonne is the third person out of the suitcase. Last out is Frank from BB 14. I did not recognize him because his hair is cut.
The new house guests seem to not be buying the returning house guests. The four returns plan on sticking together. Paul, Jozea, and Zakiyah make an alliance. Paulie outs himself as being Cody's brother. Tiffany is wondering if she should admit that she is Vanessa's sister. Da'vonne recognizes Vanessa's sister right away.
Twist number 2 is that they will play the game in teams of four. They will all play a part in choosing their teams. Da'vonne does not want to play with others. Each former house guest has to be on a separate team. They then have to pick someone of the opposite sex. That person will pick someone else. Frank picks Michelle. Da'vonne picks Paul, calling him Paulie at first. Mass confusion. James picks Natalie. Nicole picks Corey because he's big and muscular. Corey picks next. He picks Tiffany. Natalie picks Victor. Paul picks Zakiyah. Michelle picks Paulie. Paulie picks Bridgette. Zakiyah picks Jozea. Bronte joine James Team, and Glenn is last picked. He goes on Nicole's team.
Each team climbs on the rocket. As soon as all four fall off, that team is eliminated. The first team that falls off is Have Nots. Second team will get a mystery punishment revealed later. The third team gets $10,000. The last team has safety for two evictions. The first eviction is within the first two show days. Da'vonne wants to be around till the end. Glenn can't ge on the rocket.
James' head is in Natalie's butt. The rain comes, making the rockets hard to hold on to. Bronte talks. She's annoying. First off is Tiffany. Then Glenn falls off. Then Nicole is off. Corey is the only one on the rocket. Michelle and Bridgette fall down together. Then Frank goes down. It's just down to Paulie. Then Da'vonne and Zakiyah fall. Then Paul falls off. Jozea is off, so Da'vonne's team is in Notburgh--they are have nots. James falls off. Victor feels like his groin is falling off. Natalie falls off. They they get bird poop. Bronte falls. It's down to three guys.
Paulie is down. James team gets the mystery penalty. It's down to Victor and Corey. Corey falls, and Victor wins it for his team. Da'vonne is upset over being first off. Zakiyah tells everyone that the old guys have to go. Da'vonne has to see if her team has her back. Da'vonne says that she will keep her team off the radar, if they keep her off the radar. Paul says in DR that he will keep her to third or fourth out.
James team is trying to come up with a name Frank's team is Category4. James team is stupid. Vanessa's team is Freakazoids. Natalie doesn't know what a calvary is. Da'vonne's team is Big Sister. James is Team Unicorn. What a buncn of idiots! Michelle calls out Tiffany for looking like and sounding like Vanessa. Michelle thinks it might be good to align with Tiffany. Tiffany thinks Michelle is Nicole's sister, but she isn't. The three teams will compete in a Hit the Road competition. The team that wins is safe. Then it is between the remaining two teams. The team that loses has to compete individually with the person who loses being evicted.
Round one starts. They have to build a 15 piece sand castle pyramid. While three hold ropes, the fourth person has to dig. When that person finds a pyramid piece, he or she puts it on top of the stand. The first team to make a 15 piece pyramid wins. If a piece falls, it's out. Freakazoid is in the lead. Paul tries to tell Da'vonne how to do everything. Team Big Sister has terrible issues. Freakazoid needs one block. Then they lose all their blocks. Bridgette made it to the button and Category four won the first round. Da'vonne thinks picking Paul was a bad decision.
Corey and Nicole talk, and Corey thinks their team will win. I think Da'vonne will be going home first. Da'vonne cries about how hard it is.
In the second round, they have sand castle pieces, and they have to build a sand castle puzzle. There is only one solution, and there are decoy pieces. Paul is annoying. Nicole's team is confused, and Paul is telling everyone what to do like he knows everything. Nicole's team seemed clueless. As it goes to commercial break, it looks like Nicole's team got it.
Nicole's team thought they had it, but they were wrong. They had to fix the base. Glenn said he tried to tell them the base was wrong. Paal did not know that the cream and speckled windows needed to be on the same side. Then he got it. Da'vonnne is safe, and she starts crying. We don't find out who gets evicted until tomorrow night.
