Big Brother Season 18, Episode 19 Recap

I’ll never understand the joy of golfing. Actually, I can understand why playing a round with a bunch of buddies could be fun. I’m talking about televised golf. There can’t be any sport less exciting to sit on the couch and sit through.

Why do I mention this in my Big Brother recap? Well, for the first time this season the Sunday episode of Big Brother is delayed due to golf running long. Sunday TV is a complicated night, full of juggling channels and shows while also adding to my extensive DVR. Having Big Brother start over a half hour late puts a serious wrench in my night’s plans.

It’s not as if this is going to be an exciting episode anyway. There will be a HOH competition that should have been on the live feeds. The winner of that is a big disappointment, as is their self-congratulations. There will also be the first winner of America’s Care Package, and, of course, this week’s nominations.
So let’s start off with said HOH competition. Thursday’s episode ended with the beginning of this comp. In case you didn’t see that, everybody has a yellow and red ball. There’s a long, winding platform to roll these balls on. The yellow balls are for practice, and they can supposedly practice for as long as they want. The red ball is for the official roll, and they only get one of these. Why they did it this way makes no sense to me. This entire competition could have taken place in 30 seconds if it wasn’t for these idiotic practice balls. Oh well.

Most of the initial practice shots are pretty pathetic. Everybody’s drops pretty quickly after they’re rolled. Nicole gets a good practice shot but I was holding my hands over my ears so I couldn’t hear her whine about Frank. Day says the only person she trusts is herself, so she has to win this HOH. Ha! That is so funny. Day winning a HOH?

Paulie decides he’s going to throw this competition, so he rolls his red ball. It immediately drops into the six spot. This really is not an exciting competition to watch, no matter how many people babble about it’s importance. They should really have done this in 30 seconds on Thursday. Finally, Victor rolls his red ball and takes the lead with a 14. Paul decides that is probably not going to work as a high score, so he rolls his red ball...and makes it all the way to the other side for a 21. Only a perfect roll can beat it. Bridgette tries next and gets a 10.

Michelle indeed gets a perfect shot, but it’s with her practice ball. So does Natalie...three times. This after a segment of her just having all kinds of issues. She picks up her red ball, and it goes right off the board for a two. Corey rolls his, and it goes off the board. Nicole then rolls a good shot, but it drops at 20. Day is happy with this development. Zakiyah has a great roll, but it’s too hard and falls off the far end.

This leaves Michelle and Da’Vonne. They both grab their red balls, and Nicole is “sooooooo nervous”. She doesn’t want Day to win because “then I’ll be in so much trouble”. Michelle gets a 16 so she’s out, while Day gets a 19. Yep, Paul is the new HOH, and will be a weeklong annoyance. Sorry, bud, but your stupid “friendship” is never going to catch fire.

Day is happy, because she has “bonded” with Paul over the last few weeks. Victor is also pleased since they’re buds. Paulie is likewise happy, but he wants to convince Paul to go after somebody other than Bridgette.

After commercials, the celebrating continues. “I’m ready to get a letter from my mom”, says Paul. He wants to finish last week’s job, so Bridgette is indeed his target. But who will be the second nominee? He heads into the storage room with Victor and Corey, and claims he didn’t really want to be HOH. But he wants one of them to go up as a pawn, but Victor isn’t comfortable with that idea. After all, he has already been evicted once. Paul’s not happy that Victor isn’t “trusting his boy”.

Nicole sits in the living room with Day and Michelle, and she complains that she’s “walking on eggshells” around Day. For some reason, she talks about Frank, and Day says in the diary room that she really hasn’t had any “concrete” evidence against Nicole. Frank’s revelation last week about Nicole, though, is proof that her “gut feeling was correct”.

In the bedroom, James joins Paulie and Corey. Paulie is already laying the groundwork to target Day. “Right now she’s sitting pretty because she’s trying to get people to go against each other”, he (accurately) says. In the diary room, Paulie says that he thinks that Bridgette can be a number for him. James isn’t that excited by the idea since he has a good relationship with Day, but he doesn’t really say anything against the plan.

James leaves, and then Paul comes in. Paulie tells him of the Day idea, but Paul is completely against the plan. Bridgette is his target because he doesn’t trust her. Paulie says Day is “Frank in girl form”, but Paul says if she’s on the block she’ll cause havoc the whole week. He’d rather put somebody like Victor up, and then possibly backdoor Day. Chicken shit pussies. In the diary room, Paul acts like he’s not so against the Day plan.

Then we get the dreaded “who wants to see my HOH friendship room?” Fast forward time. With that segment over, it’s now time for Paul to figure out who will be the second nominee. Nobody is exactly jumping up and down and volunteering. In fact, it’s dead silence in the HOH room except for Paulie’s snoring. Day then enters, and it’s even quieter. Day won’t “step up”. Obviously Nicole would be too annoyed to do such a thing. James says he has nerve issues after last week’s HOH competition win. Zakiyah says “hell no”.

Out of the blue, Nicole pipes up and says “if you think I’m strong, fine”. Well, nobody thinks that, but Paul still says it’s a “solid answer”. Of course, she wishes she “could take those words back”.

With those not-so-famous words, there’s another set of commercials. When we return, it’s filler time as Nicole tells a long, boring story to Corey about a cat. Corey has a similar story about a dog. Why we have to sit through this I’ll never understand.

Back to the game. Bridgette comes up to the HOH to talk to Paul and Paulie. She’s “checking in, I guess”. She knows she’s in trouble this week, so she’s going to “deflect attention away from me”. She goes right in on Day and Nicole, and their shadiness. When pressed as to who is the worst, Bridgette says that the two are close. Really? You really don’t know what’s going on in the house. Paul says he has a plan, and if it “works in the right way you’ll be cool”. Secretly, though, he still wants her out of the house. At this point, Nicole is still the volunteer, so what will happen after POV is either Bridgette and Day, or Day and Nicole on the block. Oh how that second set of nominations would be lovely!

More filler, as Day points out how Paul and Paulie have gotten so close. This stinks almost as much as the dog/cat story earlier.

After that nonsense, we get the introduction of “America’s Care Package”. After Paul reads a letter introducing the twist, everybody is sent outside. They’re all excited and/or nervous. (Let me intervene here. I don’t think it’s right that they’re delivered before the nominations. That could really hurt the winner of said prize.) The package is then dropped into the backyard via parachute. The winner is Natalie. “Thanks America!!!” Good for her. She’s the only good person in the whole cast. She gets a bunch of knick-knacks, plus a “Never Not Pass”. This is great for her as she was supposed to be a have-not this week.

Back in the house, Nicole really doesn’t want to be the pawn. She tells Corey the whole “if you think I’m a strong competitor” story, but she really wants Corey to volunteer over her. What a twit. She tells Corey that he doesn’t have to volunteer, but we know she really does.

Nicole then heads upstairs, and Paul asks if she trusts her. She does, but she doesn’t want to get screwed. She plays the victim to Paul, and Paul says in the diary room that “I don’t think your backbone is strong enough to be a pawn”. Others come into the HOH, and Paulie then volunteers to go up. “Seriously?”, asks Nicole. Everybody is happy. “You’re not madddddddddddd I’m not doooooooing it?”

The only bad thing about this scene is that the nomination ceremony is truly anticlimactic. Yep, the nominees are Bridgette and Paulie. Yawn. By the way, stupid Paul is wearing his HOH robe, and has most of the time since he won HOH. What a dope. Paul says he’s just finishing the job by going after Bridgette, and Paulie is up just to make sure the “POV ends up in the right hands”.

That’s it! Sure, there’s a few more comments before the credits are finished, but they’re pretty predictable. Well, except for Day wondering why Paulie is nominated after Nicole volunteered. That over, let’s talk. Did you enjoy this episode? Are you as tired of PP as I am? Tell me your thoughts!!!

Big Brother Season 18, Episode 18 Recap

This could be one strange episode. We know who is being evicted, but it’s quite possible that person is coming right back into the game. If that does happen, the conspiracy theories are going to through the roof.

Besides the twist that will allow that to happen, we’ve been promised another twist that will bring viewers into the game. Now that scares the hell out of me. I never want viewers to have any power on this show, as the average viewer tends to favor the worst house guest. And I mean the worst. That’s why we’re stuck with Nicole and James among this year’s returnees.

As always, we start off with the reaction to the POV meeting. Well, there isn’t much as nobody was surprised Michelle didn’t use it. Frank is bummed as he can’t even really work to get votes. Michelle wants him to stay, though, so she complains to the others about their little bathroom fight shown last night. Michelle even claims that she was close to saving Frank because Bridgette scares her to much.

Back inside, Frank and Bridgette are sad. He wants her to win HOH to “shake it up a little bit”. In the diary room, Bridgette complains how she really doesn’t have many friends in real life, and she’s shocked to become so close to Frank.

Michelle is now in the kitchen with the two of them, and again we hear the somewhat shocking idea that Michelle is close to Frank. (We’ve never seen it on the feeds.) She tearfully hugs him in the storage room, saying how she “really likes him as a person”. Day and Zakiyah join them as she continues to cry that she feels so bad. He just sort of shrugs by saying she could have just saved him on the POV. Day’s not impressed, though. “He is the damn devil.”

Now we see the TV screen promising there are secrets around the house. James and Natalie are the first to see it, along with Paulie. Frank and Bridgette walk in as the others talk about it. Could this possibly save Frank. “I’m hoping for a diamond power of vet, a coup d’etat. Something that could save me and Bridgette on Thursday.’

They begin looking around, and they’re joined by others who are now aware of this twist. Day just doesn’t want Bridgette or Frank to figure it out. Paul is especially into figuring it out, so we have to endure him talking about it very loudly in the diary room. He’s wandering around the house, and figures out he needs to study the “departures” board. He’s figured out it has something to do with “Paris”, as does Zakiyah and Natalie. Studying the model airplane, Paul sees that it says “call Paris”. He goes to the phone booth and types in “Paris”, and receives the special message of “top secret information”.

There’s a tunnel under the phone, but the message informs him to keep it quiet from the rest of the house. So he wanders around some more, pretending he has not won. Paul tells others to keep Frank and Bridgette away from the phone at the same time we see Frank playing around with the phone. Bridgette asks Paul if she can try something, but he doesn’t let her in. She heads downstairs and tells Frank the info on the plane. She then tries that code on the downstairs phone, but that doesn’t work. Upstairs, Paul decides to just go in.

He crawls through the tunnel into the top-secret “Paris room”. He reads the card which describes how there are 12 envelopes. If they have the “round trip” ticket, then they’re able to return to the house if they are eliminated. Anybody else that figures out the code also gets an envelope. Paul thinks he’s going to be able to keep it quiet. Yeah, right.

Paul crawls back out with his envelope, and attempts to tell a phony story about it in the living room. He sort of explains the story, but stumbles on the questions asked by Frank and Natalie. He also mistakenly says there are other cards, and Victor figures out that he should also head upstairs to solve the puzzle.

Frank tries to gain entry by entering “211”, the flight number on the poster. Victor, though, figures out that you had to type in “Paris” on the phone dial. Pretty much everybody follows through and does the same thing. Frank finally figures out the letters code, and he and Bridgette both get their cards. “This is making me happy as pie right now”, he says, “cuz it gives me and Bridgette a chance to come right back into this game”. Day is not happy with this, however, as he will be on fire if he does come back.

It’s time to head to the bathroom, though, as former house guests are profiled, including Nicole’s ex-boyfriend, Hayden. Who gives a shit?

With that idiocy over, it’s time for the eviction. Julie starts by congratulating the house on finding the secret room, and explains how this twist works. August 18 is the last eviction night this works. Frank then gives his final plea, and says it’s a “privilege” to meet Bridgette, and she should never change as she’s a beautiful person. “For the rest of you guys, pretty much the opposite applies in most cases. Don’t take care. Hope to never see you again. Sorry not sorry. Julie, I hope that dress is as pretty in person. See you in a few minutes.” Bridgette goes into her little girl voice, and she says she’s lucky to know Frank. That’s it.

The voting then starts with Da’Vonne, who votes to evict Frank, as does Paul, Paulie, Nicole, Victor, Michelle, Zakiyah, Corey, and Natalie. Yep, it’s unanimous. Julie announces the verdict, and Frank is gone. “See you in five minutes”, says Michelle.

Julie asks if Frank was serious about his final plea, and he says he was just joking. We then go to commercials before we see what’s in Frank’s envelope. They actually have the rest of the house watch as Julie opens the envelope. Guess what? He does not!!! So much for the conspiracy theorists. We then get an uncomfortable couple of minutes where the crew does not seem to know what to do.

Frank gets some more questions, and they’re mainly about the ongoing rivalry with Day. He admits he has a big mouth and is “too trusting”. He’s also worried about Bridgette’s future, but hopes that a “couple people will have her back”. Final messages are played. James babbles about how there’s only room for one America’s Player (ugh), Nicole says she did “literally have (his) back”, and the usual sassiness from Day. Bridgette then says she has “no regrets” and says she’ll “never be ashamed of being called your Cabbage Patch kid”. Bye Frank!

It’s now time for the HOH competition. It’s called “Perfect Shot”. They have a red and yellow ball. They have to roll the red ball up the winding ramp. The yellow ball is for practice, and they can practice all they want. The winner is the first person with the perfect shot. If nobody makes that shot, then the highest score wins. The four lowest scores will be have-nots.

Everybody starts with their yellow ball, and Nicole is already whining. Paulie is the only one to be doing well with the practices, but then Michelle does get a perfect one with her practice ball. As the show goes to commercials, Julie announces that every week America will vote on who gets “America’s Care Package”. Each of them includes an advantage in the game, and the first one is a “never-not pass” which excludes them from ever being a have-not. Ugh.

When the show comes back after the final set of adverts, everybody is still using their practice balls. Yep, once again we don’t see who the HOH is before the show goes off the air. Please turn on the feeds right away, CBS!!!

So that’s it. Did you enjoy the episode? Any of it? How about this new fan vote? Let’s talk about it!!!

Big Brother Gossip Season 18, Episode 17 Recap

My apologies in advance for any typos, erroneous sentence structure, misspelled words, or any other deficiencies in this recap. Colette and I recorded a super-long Day Drinking episode today, and I’m still feeling the effects of my Windsor-Cokes.

There’s not much to look forward to anyway, as it’s bound to be a humdrum episode highlighted only by the return of a favored POV competition. Otherwise, the only truly exciting portion of this week is bound to be saved for tomorrow night.

So here we go where we left off this past Sunday with the nominations of Frank and Bridgette. James says he doesn’t feel bad about “bouncing checks” against Frank and Bridgette. Frank says it “grinds my gears” that Bridgette is on the block next to him. Bridgette, though, is sad that he went against his word. “I’ve just been blatantly lied to.”

The two walk away from the table, with Bridgette saying “what a piece of shit”. Frank tells her to “don’t get down”. She complains that it’s “lonely enough in this house”, and he gives her a big hug. She’s tearful in the diary room. “It sucks, man.” Frank reminds her that everybody lies in this game. “The thought of Frank leaving me in this house is really tearing me up right now”, she says. If she survives the weak, “they better watch their freaking back”.

In the storage room, Paul, Nicole, Zakiyah, and Day dance. Honestly, I can’t understand what Day is saying but oh well. Michelle gets a rare diary room appearance to celebrate the fact that the “really fake” Bridgette is on the block.

Frank heads upstairs to talk to James about being nominated. He says he expected to go on the block, but “poor Bridge” is sad. As he always does, James uses the “this is Big Brother” excuse to make anything he does OK, but at the same time Frank thinks he’s now laying the groundwork for both of them to survive. James says that every time there’s a fight in the house somehow Frank’s name is involved. “You’re Frank the Tank, man.” Frank responds that the real drama comes from Day, who keeps throwing his name around.

It’s the fake funk, which means it’s time to pick POV players. James pulls Michelle’s chip, Bridgette gets Da’Vonne, and Frank’s pull goes for Nicole. “I’m realllllly exciiiiiiited….” Aw shut the fuck up, Nicole.

In the bedroom, Day and Michelle talk about how Bridgette pulled Day’s chip. Paul joins them and tells Day she needs to win. “We wanna kick butt”, she responds. He then goes nuts about nothing in the diary room.

That fake funk comes on again as it’s already POV time. Yep, it’s OTEV. I wonder if Natalie knows what OTEV even means. This time OTEV is a rude British DJ (ugh), who will play a “track” that everybody has to find in the yard.

James shows his true colors by stating that he’s throwing this comp so he has no more “blood on his hands”. The first answer is “Tozarks”, and James is indeed out. “Get out of my festival”, says OTEV. “Dizzy Dog” is the next answer, and Day is now out. Shocker. What a consistently terrible player she is. Nicole is out next with “Ride the Rocket”. Next out is Frank on “Watch Your Dubstep”. So it’s between Bridgette and Michelle for the POV win. The final answer is “Take It Off”, and Michelle has shockingly won the POV!

With that over, we have another 30 minutes of show to fill. How will they do this? It starts with Frank hoping he can talk Michelle using the POV to save one of them. GOod luck with that. He takes the opportunity to talk to her after she says she is going to bed. He says he wants to “flip the house this week in a different direction”, and since she’s a super-fan she should like this. Yeah, it doesn’t work. The only way she’ll use it is to “throw Bridgette under the bus”. Yep, it’s the mean girl way. She even thinks that without Bridgette around he may want to team up against her.

As they’re talking, everybody in the house walks by, which makes James talk tough. How dare Michelle talk to Frank. Day says that since he’s a salesman, they could be in trouble. Paul thinks he needs to go call him out. “I don’t like it. Somebody’s going to get screwed over. It better be him and not me.”

Paul walks into the room, and Frank asks him to leave. “What are you? A bouncer in a nightclub?” Zakiyah then walks in, followed by James. Frank again pleads for everybody to leave so he can plead his case.

Day then walks upstairs, and they giggle at Paul’s fury at Frank rising and rising. Day is hoping he explodes. Paul and Paulie walk in on Nicole and Corey making out (and fondling), and Paul just starts ranting and raving about Frank.

Finally, Paul confronts Frank. “What’s the end game?” Frank says it’s not his problem, and reminds him that he’s not the person who puts up the replacement nominee. “I don’t know why you’re coming after me.” Paul is a fucking moron. Frank handles it all with a smile on his face as Paul just nonsensically goes on and on. “I’m on the block, bro. Do you want me to lay over and die?”

After commercials, Michelle heads upstairs to talk to James. She has no desire to use the veto, and James encourages her to tell the whole house her plans. So they have a house meeting. Oh lord. They all gather, and most have no idea why. Paul takes charge, and says “I’m over it”. Frank clearly wants the veto used, and Day put up in his place. Of course he does. Paulie says that he was just going to take Frank aside and say his plans weren’t going to work. Frank thanks Day and Paulie for “having a backbone”.

We next see Bridgette and Michelle in the bathroom putting on makeup. Bridgette attempts to make up with her, and she wants to “hash it out”. This is another ridiculous segment that goes nowhere. Michelle doesn’t believe she’s ever attacked her. “I’m nice to you sometimes.” What a Cut Fitness. Michelle even admits that she’s jealous of Bridgette’s friendship with Frank.

After this long hour of TV, it’s finally time for the POV meeting. No matter how much fake diary room commentary from Michelle about how hard this decision is for her, we all know what’s coming. Guess what? Michelle doesn’t use it!!! Time to go home!!! Oh yeah, Frank does make a little comment about production being his only hope. Hahahahah

So….anything you want to talk about? Did you enjoy OTEV? Are you as tired of Paul as me? Or Michelle? Or anybody for that matter? Tell me what you think!

Big Brother Season 18, Episode 16 Recap

Tonight is a rare mid-season episode where I have not yet seen any of the material presented. Thanks to a silly thirty-hour feed blackout, all of this footage will be new to me.

Not that I don’t know what happened. It doesn’t take too long to get caught up when the feeds come back on, and we discussed everything on last night’s Big Brother Gossip Show. (By the way, are you a patreon yet? Get on it!)

Let’s get on with the show, starting with Victor walking back into the house. He says that last time he “played a little too honest”, but he’s going to change it up. Yeah right. Michelle isn’t happy with him returning, or the end of the other twists. Paul thinks he’s now doing super-well, so he’s not sure how to handle his pal Victor returning.

Paulie is also not happy as he was the HOH who sent him packing. Frank hopes that he can use Victor as a replacement for Tiffany. James, though, thinks that any returnee has to go right back out. “Sorry but don’t unpack your bags just yet.”

Frank talks to Victor in the bathroom, and we see Bronte giving him advice after their Roadkill. Paul walks in as he tells Victor the story about Tiffany, and he races out in anger. Victor asks who he has working with him, and outside of Bridgette Frank is dead wrong.

James wonders if Victor’s going to come after him. (Doubtful). He is then shown sitting around with Day and Nicole talking about who to send out next. Day still wants Frank gone. Nicole then asks Frank who he wanted to come back, and he says either Bronte or Tiffany. He asks what they were just talking about, and Nicoel narcs on Day that she wants him out before Victor.

In the bedroom, Narc paul talks to Paulie. He wants to make sure Paulie doesn’t think he’s in cahoots with Victor this time around. He says that he may act like they’re buddies, but don’t believe anything that comes out of Frank’s mouth. Zakiyah and Day joins them, and Paul babbles on and on about Frank “leeching” on Victor. Because they were friends, though, Paul thinks he can control Victor. Paul, you’re a dummy.

It’s now HOH competition time. Remember that final match on Friday’s Battle Back competition? It’s the same set with a few modifies. It’s the “Electric BB Festival”, and for some reason they don’t even start it as we hear all of the diary room “I have to win” chats. Just get going!!!

After commercials, we see how this works. There’s a little rope moving back and forth, and they must step over it while keeping their left hand up in the air. Apparently, this competition took almost 5 ½ hours, but I’m not going to sit through all of it. Paul is the first one eliminated, and he then annoys everybody (especially me) by constantly babbling as the rest compete. Nicole is next, and she’s “sooooooooooo mad and sooooooo embarrassed”. She should be. Zakiyah is next, followed by Michelle, and Corey. Victor is eliminated when a shared water bottle was tossed to him. Frank then “goofs around a little bit”, and that leads to his departure. Dummy. The sun now starts to rise as the competition carries on, and Natalie is out just after four hours. James starts to ask about making a deal, but changes hi mind when Natalie says she’ll kiss him if he wins.

Bridgette’s ankle is starting to bother her, so Frank tries to make a deal with Day. She won’t buy it, saying Bridgette would put her up. “I don’t trust her.” Paul then interrupts them, and Day says she’ll stay up all day if she needs to. There’s a bit of an argument over some nominating information, and Frank outs Nicole as his source. “Seriously.” Day wants a minute to think, and says “that’s some hurtful shit”. James then says he’ll keep both Bridgette and Day safe, but Day and Bridgette don’t trust each other. Frank still wants to make their deal, but Day says “if what you say is true, I’m screwed either way”.

When commercials are over, it’s still Day bitching about what Frank said. Paul wants everybody to discuss it, and Frank is pissed that Day has gone back on her word to drop out if Frank revealed Nicole. Now Day announces it to the whole backyard, and she just shakes her saying “no, I didn’t say that”. In the diary room she adds, “I don’t know how to react”. Frank says that if she throws it to Bridgette, she’ll put up Nicole. This makes her more determined to win.

Both girls finally decide to toss it to James, who again says he’s not going to put them up. They both release their hands, and James is the new HOH! More importantly, he got his kiss from Natalie.

Back in the house, Nicole whines that she needs to make amends to Day. She plays the innocent victim (as always). Day claims that she believes Frank was lying, but she really doesn’t. “Nicole, I’m watching you, chick.”

In the storage room, James and Natalie celebrate. James is so happy they don’t have to worry about being backdoored. Well, what if that’s what Natalie likes?

Nicole then reports to Corey about the Day situation. Frank walks in, and tells her that he wants to talk to her later. She says she doesn’t want to do that, as she’ll “never trust him again”.

Bridgette and Natalie talk, and Bridgette feels completely safe from nomination. “I trust you”, she says to Natalie.

In the bedroom, Paul continues to babble. He believes that since Bridgette is such a good competitor, the two nominees should be Frank and Bridgette. Victor won’t be an issue, as Paul says he can control him. Paul then pulls Victor into the next room, and after telling him that he was the one vote to save him when he was evicted he states the plan about going after Frank. Victor now knows “I just have to lay low this week.”

Bridgette then lays down with Frank, and he says he should not have tried to make a deal with Day. “At that point, I thought she was going down at any time.” They still feel safe, though, since James gave them his word.

Not so fast, as James goes to chat with Day. She asks if James made a deal, and because of it he believes he’ll put up Frank and Victor. Day wants Bridgette put up instead of Victor, and that idea sounds great to James because he won’t get any blood on his hands if he does what “the whole house wants”. Yep, as always James is doing other people’s work. Just like last year.

With another set of commercials behind us, it’s another conversation between Natalie and James. Victor walks in on them, and he tells James that Paul filled him on the “Frank and Bridgette plan”. Oh you dummy. We hear some more “I want to do what the house wants me to do” crap, and Victor adds that he’s cool with everything that happened before. Once he leaves, James informs Natalie that he has to back out of his deal with Bridgette. “This is your HOH”, she says when James babbles about what others want him to do. Pussy.

A napping James is then awakened by Paulie, and Natalie leaves to go to the bathroom. He wants to know if James is going to put those two up. James repeats how he made a “public deal” with them, and he did that same thing last year. Natalie returns, and Paulie says “sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do”. Paulie says that if he doesn’t do what they want, he’ll still support him in the future. Yeah, sure.

Before nominations, Frank asks James to go to the safari room for a chat. Frank tells James that he knows his name has been floating around, but James claims that he’s on board with putting up Victor. Frank suggests a few other ideas, including Day and Nicole.

So here’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Who will James put up? Frank and Victor, or Frank and Bridgette? Or will he go rogue and put up Frank’s ideas? If you know James, then you know the answer. Yep, he goes against his word and nominated Bridgette and Frank. Yep, James is a big ugly pussy. He says that Bridgette is “collateral damage”, and Frank is up because he is “in the middle” of all the craziness in the house.

Bridgette is “so angry” and has “been lied to over and over”. She trusts Natalie, but James’ word doesn’t mean anything. James again babbles about doing what the house wants, and both of them are great competitors. “Go big or go home”, he says. Ugh. Day couldn’t be happier, and she sort of acts like she “cooked this up”. Frank laughs at how James repeated himself. “Are you fucking kidding me?”

That’s it. What did you think of all of this? Are you happy with the nominations? Or Natalie’s choices of tops? Did you smile when Frank outed Nicole? Let’s chat about it!!!
