This recap isn’t going to be so much about last night’s show, but just some items to fill in the gaps from my last recap and what has been going on in the house since Jersey Paulie has been nominated. You see, I may not be a Jersey girl, but I know Jersey boys and he’s been pulling typical Jersey boy moves. (Think Joe Gorga, Juicy Joe and the Manzo boys from RHONJ.)
Nicole and Michele had a fight about a deal 24 hours before eviction. They show James confronting Paulie about his inappropriate advances towards Natalie. Paulie then goes to confront Natalie. There’s a lot of bleeping and Jersey girl insults on Paulie’s part. BB is not holding back on showing Paulie in a bad light.(Should I feel bad about not feeling bad about this?) Maybe there’s a lot of Jersey girls on the BB staff. Or maybe it’s just that there is a lot of women on the staff period. Paulie is such a douchebag towards women in general. He promises that Natalie is going next.
While the confrontation is continuing (Bridgette is now calmly pointing out that Paulie is getting personal with his attacks, Paul and Victor are lying in the HOH bed watching this all and eating Cheetos. I feel like they are part of The People’s Couch. This was the best part of the episode and I wonder how much Cheetos paid for their product placement.
Ninety minutes before the eviction, James tells Paulie that Z is going. He doesn’t want to blindside him because he doesn’t want Paulie going after him when this is all said and done. James tells him that this was the girl’s idea and he is standing by them because that is the Texas code. (Huh? I thought he was from North Carolina.)
Now back to the present time. Paulie apologizes to James. Paul and Victor are playing the middle between the two warring sides of the house. Paul says that Paulie is crazy and he is tip-toeing around him.
Finally, they have the HoH comp called Hollywood Squirrels. Vic won. Yay! I’m rooting for him to win now. Sorry, TT. Both Paulie and Paul are happy he won, but for totally different agendas.
Paul convinces Vic to target Paulie and Corey for the noms and forget the girls. It’s better for their end game. They have to pick a side and show their cards.
The care package arrives and hits Natalie in the head as it lands. Nicole won and she has to wear a safety unitard to be safe for the week. As she wears it, I wonder wait a pain in the neck it is if you have to pee a lot like I do.
On to the Nom ceremony. This is going to be good. First key is Paulie. He was nominated because he is the strongest competitor. Second key is Corey. He’s nominated because he is guilty by association.
BB ends the show with Paulie crying in the DR room (typical Jersey Boy behavior) and we are told Zingbot is coming. Yay!
Now onto what has happened since the show. When Paulie spoke with Victor, Vic explained that Paulie was in to many different alliances and floating between them all, while Victor was only in one. He also told him that Victor was voted out 9-1 and doesn’t owe anybody anything. Victor is giving Paulie the chance to play in the veto. An option Victor was not given.
Natalie and Paulie had a talk about their fight. Natalie ends up apologizing to Paulie for any hurt she caused him. Paulie sort of apologizes to her. He starts planting seeds about James to her, saying that James was in the men’s alliance and that he had info that he didn’t share with her. She goes back to James and tells him that Paulie is full of shit and that he thinks he can do no wrong. Paulie comes and talks to James and tells him how much James has hurt him because he never expected James to turn on him. Paulie still wants to stick with the guys alliance.
Btw, the have nots are Natalie, Michelle and Nicole. Natalie doesn’t count because she has the pass.
The next day is the veto comp. Before the comp, Paul is going to rattle Paulie so he doesn’t compete well. The houseguests start getting on Paulie’s case about how he kept throwing their names out to other to get them to distrust each other. Paulie blames Michelle for turning the guys on him. She tells him that he did it on his own and that he is no Cody or Derrick. (Zing!)
Paulie keeps insisting that he was/is still loyal to the guys and wanted to get the girls out. Michelle wants to shoot herself in the head if he says loyalty one more time. He insists he can say it all he wants to because he is.
This goes on and on but basically he admits that Corey is his Cody and that if after the veto the noms stay the same, to keep Corey. Ha! You don’t even have to ask. Your ass is grass.
Victor won the veto comp! Yay! Zingbot was also there. As far as I can tell, James won $5000 which Nicole thinks is sketchy. Later on when she confronts him about it, he says last time he didn’t take it, his baby momma was pissed because he only lasted one more week in the house and the baby needed a new pair of shoes!
Nicole won a trip anywhere in the US and she’s not sure if Hawaii is part of the US. Corey has to wear a Patriotard that doesn’t fit in his nether regions and he has to keep his hand up an eagle’s butt.
Paul has to wear a secret service outfit and pat everyone down when there is a red alert. And poor Paulie has to bake apple pies when bb tells him to. They are all still planning on getting Paulie out esp. since Victor passed up the $5,000.
Paulie has been acting weird and later that evening Nicole tells Corey that she thinks that Paulie is going to quit. Since, Corey has nothing up there, he doesn’t believe it. Paulie joins them and says he wants Victor to use the veto on Corey. This way, if Victor puts someone else up, he has a chance to get the votes. Paulie is also worried about people trashing him and being harsh in their goodbye messages. What a wuss!
Later on Paulie talks with Nicole and he is telling her that he is losing it. That if he is evicted, he plans on only staying in the jury house until he knows he has no chance for returning to the game. He says he will go insane if he stays any longer in that house. I think he is afraid of Z and Bridgette. Or maybe he’s afraid of sleeping alone in his bed. I’ve never seen him sleep alone.
Now Paulie is telling her that he spoke with his psychiatrist before coming on the show and the Dr told him he would be playing with fire if he came on the show. That he lied to BB about never having seen a psychiatrist. (I start to inch away listening to this.) That he is playing this game because he needs the money for his poor aunt’s cancer treatment. (Hey Paulie, stop it with the cancer sympathy card. Just about everybody in this day and age needs the money for a dying cancer family member. Get in line!)
Victor, Paul, James and Natalie have a final four deal. Paul and Victor are convinced they can beat Natalie and James. (Ah, but will Paul stay true to Victor at the end? Hmmm…)
Nicole is still worried about Paulie self evicting. Paulie is working on Michelle to get her to flip by making her feel guilty. Michelle always makes me feel worried she will. She seems to fall for sob stories. She’s to gullible. Paulie wants Vic to take Corey down and put up Natalie. But Michelle likes Natalie now and doesn’t know if she could do it. (Ack! I knew not to trust Michelle.) He’s trying to convince her that Victor needs to go because no one will be able to beat him in comps. That Michelle needs him to help get Victor out and next week is their only chance because he can’t play for HOH. Natalie and James notice how much those two talk together and are now leery of Michelle so they are going to be careful about passing info to her.
Now we are up to yesterday’s events. Paulie tried working on Victor to take Corey down and put someone else up. Victor doesn’t want to change anything and chance that Paulie might stay. With Corey on the block, he knows Nicole will vote Paulie to leave. Paulie keeps trying different tactics to get Victor to take Corey down. Victor holds his ground and basically tells Paulie to deal with it. It will be a lot easier in the end for him.
Now Paulie moves on to Paul to convince him that Victor has a great chance of winning all the rest of the comps, so save him to beat Victor. Then he moves on to James, seeming to have accepted defeat. He wants James to stick with Corey. James tells him that Paulie is basically going home this week. Paulie starts going on about the jury house again and how he can’t handle it. James tries to tell him how wonderful it is. They will give you whatever you want. And it is big so you aren’t on top of each other.
James, Nicole and Corey get together. Both Nicole and James can’t believe that Paulie grabbed the veto away from Corey in the Veto comp. It was stupid because you knew that someone would grab it from him. Corey doesn’t like the new Paulie that he is seeing.
Later in the evening, BB called Paulie to the DR. He wouldn’t get up to go. They had to call him 3 times. When he came out, he started baking his pie. I guess he talked about his ex-girlfriend, who didn’t sign a release, the whole time, so they made him do a second one. He refused to and got called to the DR.
When he got back, Corey talked to him. Told him he had to change his attitude and start being nice to people. Corey said he was pissed himself for being screwed over and put on the block but he accepted it. That it’s a game. Corey is actually giving some good advice. Paulie agrees with Corey and says he will do better. That it was a matter of pride that he was acting so horrible.
Of course, Paulie doesn’t take Corey’s advice and starts throwing James under the bus to Victor. He also starts bringing his dying aunt up again. This gets the rest of the house pissed again and they really, really want Paulie gone now, more than ever.
And, that’s all I got! I’m pooped!
