Yay! Another Sunday night and we are FINALLY in the home stretch of this season of “I Don’t Care enough Who Wins.”
We start off the show with the slip and slide HOH comp of filling up a giant jar of butter. For more information on this comp, check out my last recap for the details.
Victor doesn’t want James to win this comp, in fact, none of the final four want him to win. Wait! BB shows us and earlier scene (45 hours before the eviction) of NiCorey talking about getting Victor out instead and scooping up James for their side. The Bastards!
Corey then talks to James the day after the eviction. He tells him he has to move forward and they have his back. James leaves and when Nicole comes in the Tokyo room, Corey tells her that they have James. When James comes back, James tells them that he’s had their backs from day 1. (Now, I’ve heard rumors about James and Nicole having a pregame alliance, but he had one with Corey, also? This is ridiculous.) Anyway, Victor and Paul are looking like they are toast.
Back to the HOH comp. This comp went by fast. It only took about an hour and a half. Some of the highlights from it was Paul trying to go up and down the slip and slide. He mostly slipped. I’m wondering if he’s trying to throw it.
NiCorey are covering their bases. Corey is going for the big jar to fill while Nicole is going for the small one to get the big scooper. Paul starts out filling the big jar, but then switches to the small one. James realizes that he is out of shape and can’t win it. But he won’t quit. He’s not going to go out of his way to win it, either. He knows he’s in the sweet spot of remaining house guests.
Paul is still falling down. A LOT! They really should give these house guests knee pads. There is asphalt underneath that Astroturf. Paul decides to slide down his lane on his ass. He’s having better luck that way and not spilling as much butter. He thanks his mother for giving him his big ass. Would that be considered a back handed compliment?
Nicole finally gets the big scooper. Can she win? At the 52 minute mark, Corey’s jar is almost filled. Paul has finally filled his small jar, but he can’t get his ball out. I heard him bitching on the feeds later on that it wasn’t fair. Victor replied that Corey was so far ahead that it didn’t matter.
Anyway, Corey won. Fuck. Poor Victor is ecstatic that Corey won. Both he and Paul feel safe. Victor doesn’t notice that while he is celebrating Corey’s win with NiCorey, that they are dead silent when he mentions that all they need to do is win the veto to have things tied up. Poor trusting fool.
Meanwhile, James enters the London room. He’s mourning the loss of Natalie. We get to see old footage of him trying to patch things up with Natalie. I guess it went well. She left him her flip flops so he doesn’t get foot fungus. If she was still pissed at him, she be wishing worse things than foot fungus on him.
After the HOH reveal, Corey is discussing with Nicole who to nominate. He wants Victor gone, then Paul. Victor got his best friend out of the house and he is a competition beast. (Hey! What happened to wanting to beat the best at the end?) Nicole wants James’ word that he won’t use the veto. (Like James can win anything at this point.) Corey is not worried about James. He is making more sense than Nicole at this point with her flip flopping. Nicole feels guilty for stabbing Victor and Paul in the back and she is terrified of Paul’s reaction. (It was heard on the feeds that she was saying all this to give production footage for the show. (Who knows if she is lying about that?)
BB has blessed us with not one, but TWO montages of the adorable Nicole this week. The first is of Corey pouring salt in her mason jar of water. When she later goes to drink it, she spews it like a Tsunami all over him. I enjoyed that one. The second is of Victor flirting like an 8 year old to get Nicole’s attention. I could have done without that one. Paul says winning Nicole’s heart is not a comp that Victor can win.
Back to NiCorey in the HOH room. They are waiting for James to come up there on his own. This will prove James loyalty to them. (Huh?) James passes the test. He came up to find out what the plan is. It’s to get out the big fish. James is only a minnow.
Finally, Paul begins to question Victor if NiCorey will fuck them over. He’s worried that James is going to be the one to back stab them. Vic is confident that they won’t. Loyalty is Victor’s Achilles heel. Bless him.
Paul decides to go up to the HOH room to see if the Final Four are still tight. They assure him it is. Paul volunteers to go up as a pawn with James. Paul doesn’t pick up that he is doing all the talking and NiCorey are dead quiet again. After he leaves, Nicole once again starts backpedaling. Corey is adamant about screwing over Victor and Paul with his nominations.
Now BB shows us a strange scene that I never heard discussed anywhere on the internet. BB sure seems to be keeping a lot of things hidden from the live feeders. Corey is alone at the kitchen table at night staring at the memory wall. It’s supposedly the night before the nomination ceremony. But who knows? The pictures are talking to him. I’m wondering if he’s sleep walking again or secretly studying for the face morph comp. Then Corey starts cleaning the kitchen, the floors, the stair case, etc. He’s going to town with the Mr. Clean. At the end he says “He’ll be proud of me.” (Who is he? Is Corey doing this out of guilt to appease Victor with a clean house for putting him up? No clue.)
Nomination time. The usual blurbs from everyone about what they are thinking. It’s already been said ten times in this show. The first nominee is Victor. Ok, one of the two are expected to go up. No big deal. The second nominee is PAUL! Argh! Corey actually did it. Damn! I don’t want Victor going home! He and Paul are the only entertaining people in the house. If he goes home, we will be stuck with NiCorey in bed all day and a depressed James moping around the house. Who will Paul have to talk to? I hate this.
Paul accepted the nominations but he’s not going to lie down and die, but Victor’s eyes looks like he wants to take that knife out of his back and stab Corey with it.
I wish he did.
TT Here. HUGE APOLOGIES TO LIMEBRAIN for the delay in posting this. I had two housewives trips, and a million other posts that unfortunately take precedence
over the good shows Big Brother, I am narcoleptic again, and I have a new business partnership going on with the site that has me having to fill out all sorts of forms and contracts that makes me very stabby. Believe me I would much rather have been chatting with you guys about Big Brother.
And unlike most of you, I chose a boy and a girl at the beginning of the season, Tiffany and Paul. I do this every season and they usually are the first ones gone. But when they are not, they give me someone to root for at the end, and Paul is my pony.
And I have some good news. Yesterday, the live eviction that we saw last night was on. SPOILER ALERT Stop reading if you don’t want to know.
They had a regular audience for filming and Miss Cleo, a superfan on Twitter who lives nearby goes to as many of the live shows as possible. Miss Cleo says that Victor gets evicted, (obviously) and Paul wins the HOH guaranteeing him final three. This means that he puts up two people and whoever wins the veto decides who is going home (because they will be the only voter.)
So you guys need to try to muster up a modicum of desire to root for my boy. Unless you want Nicorey or James to win in which case I will mock you endlessly and make your lives a living hell.
Good news for Victor fans, he will be eliminated tonight, which is the first night that AFP voting begins. I will vote for Victor endlessly and so will lots of people because his sad eviction comes just before voting opens, if you guys will just TRY to send good juju to my boy.
Thank you and have a nice day.
And please make plenty of comments here during the show and tell Lime Brain how much we appreciate her. Writing a recap is a lot harder than she makes it look. And she has been doing two or three a week all season!
