Sunday night’s episode of Big Brother began with the HoH competition. It was the Black Box Comp where the houseguests have to perform a task in utter darkness. This year, they had to climb through a tar pit and if they roam far enough through box of feathers to collect wooden doughnuts to stack on a dowel. In between rounds they had to stand and hold down a button.The hamsters are calling it an endurance comp because it was a two hour competition. That’s not really and endurance comp, but whatever.
While everyone was talking while holding down the button, Corey is using his long arms to find the disks.
I’m getting bored watching this. They should have had it on the live feeds. We would have had fun watching it live and then BB could put more strategy talk on the show so we know what’s going on in the rooms the don’t show us. I don’t think I’m getting my $6 worth with the feeds.
While this is going on, we have a flashback of Paulie stirring the pot before he leaves. He tells Corey and Nicole to go after Victor and James. Nicole runs and tells Natalie and James that Paul said he was going after James and Victor. Nat is pissed. Corey had already been telling James that Paul had been throwing him under the bus. James wants to make deal with Nicole and Corey.
In the end, Corey and Natalie ties with ten disks each. It’s a tie breaker. They roll back the tape to see who had the tenth disk first. Natalie wins by four seconds.
James tells Natalie that they’ve been playing both sides of house and they will have to decide which side to commit to.
Paul says he jumped the PeePee ship to be with Nat and James. It better work.
Victor says that the past 2 weeks he didn’t put Natalie on block. He hopes she takes it into consideration.
In the kitchen if front of Corey, Paul tells Natalie how proud he is of her. She walks out. Paul knows something isn’t right. Now Paul and Victor are worried they will be put up. (On the feeds she was constantly avoiding Paul)
Nicole goes to talk to Nat. Nicole and Nat make a deal. If Nat doesn’t put her up she promises not to put her up next week. (Like Nicole would ever win!)Nicole suggests putting up Paul.
James tells Nat it’s her HoH and it’s down to seven. Do what she needs to do.
Nicole ruins the trunk in the Safari room by painting her toenails without anything at all to protect the furniture. I am sick of these tri-weekly segments of how adorable and goofy Nicole is. I’m surprised they have enough material for three days a week considering she never gets out of bed.
Paul talks to Nat and James in bathroom saying he expects Nicole and Corey to go up. He says this is the only time he will say anything. He leaves. Nat is not happy.
Victor goes up to HoH room to talk to Natalie. Corey is already there. Victor feels awkward with their whispering. Victor quickly leaves.
Victor tells Paul they stopped talking when he entered the room. Paul says something is off. Why can’t people stick to a plan?
Iit is time for Friendship Time with Paul, a montage of his monologues to the live feeders.
WIth twenty minutes left in the show, Michelle wins the America’s Care Package with the Co-HoH. She freaks out trying to open the box. They gave her tissues amongst the gifts. That made me chuckle.
The looks on Nicoles and Corey’s faces were hysterical when they saw the advantage. Nic says it stinks because she will probably go up.
Michelle wants to stir the pot this week. Nat does her cutesy act saying how happy she is that she has a Co-HoH.Nat meets with Michelle. Michelle really, really wants to put up Nicole. Nat says to put up the two strongest players: Paul and Victor. Victor walks in and does his friendship routine. Paulie talked to Michelle before he left and threw Paul under the bus. She’s on board getting rid of him. They agree about Paul, but Michelle doesn’t want to put up Victor.
Corey talks game to Michelle. She says he’s a muffled voice in the background. She’s ignoring him.
They both want to get rid of Paul. Michelle says she’s alone. She has no ride or die. She refuses to put up Victor. Nat says she’ll do it. Michelle will put up Paul. Michelle is torn at this point.
The nomination begins with a red alert. Natalie nominates Victor and says she hopes he pulls himself off. Michelle nominates Paul. She says he is a good competitor. That he’s been acting shady. He is a liar. They didn’t show where she called him an atheist. She was worried about that. After the ceremony, Paul asks Victor to get the knife out of his back.
Michelle says if one of them comes down, Nicole will go up.
I just want to add that on the lives feeds this week, Natalie said in the storage room, that Mom and Dad (and she pointed to the diary room) told her to put up Paul and Victor and she was using their words. It pisses me off that she is such a ditz and listened. Unlike Victor who was told not to put up Paulie and he basically told them to fuck off. Maybe this is BB’s retribution for him not obeying them.
Also, since all of this took place, Paul won veto and plans on taking himself off the block. Michelle has to do the renom, and really, really wants to put up Nicole. She’s being pressured/not pressured to put up Corey. It’s looking like Victor will be the one to go this week. James is the deciding vote. If Victor does stay, he and Paul plan on taking James out next week.
And just this morning, Big Brother made Nicole go up to the HoH room and tell everybody that she will not buy James anything after the show and left the room. James was called to the DR and came back and told everybody that he will not buy anything for anybody after the show.
Paul said that Big Brother just blew up their games. But he and Victor were playing it very low key and dropped it. They all went to bed soon afterwards. Victor is sleeping in the have not room with James.
It could be an interesting day today in the house if they ever wake up.
