I made the mistake of creating a live feed thread today when I should have known the day would have been as dull as Caleb’s head (does that even make sense?). I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed with Nicole. Don’t get me wrong, as a person she seems really fantastic and I wish nothing but the best for her, but as a Big Brother player? That was pretty much a failure. Well, anyone who doesn’t win can say they had a failure of a season, but the reason it’s a bit more for Nicole is because she has a good personality, appears to be very intelligent, somewhat fit, and is one of the few people in the house who know the game.
While Christine has positioned herself to be a far less likable Brittany Haynes, Nicole really seemed on track to be the next Jordan Lloyd. I guess that’s why I’m mostly disappointed with her season. I started expecting more out of her, but she went out with a whimper, just like everyone else this season.
Did Nicole even really have a chance? I’d say yes. Not a very huge chance, but a good player could have swayed Christine back to their side. They were allies for most of the season. Nicole just had to convince Christine why being allies with her was better than 4 strong guys (not a hard argument really). With Christine on board, it would have been just 3 votes. Still difficult to get, but not impossible. Although, Derrick does have the house pretty well locked down, so the reality is, even picking up Christine (as the tie-breaker), finding 3 votes to reach that point would have been rough.
Nicole’s failures came before she was put on the block. She should have been by Christine’s side 24×7 leading up to the veto meeting. That likely would have been the best (and possibly only) way for her to remain in this week.
So my predictions:
- Everyone votes for Nicole
I don’t think a player will return to the game tonight, although someone in the comment section did bring out a good thought. The whole zombie, resurrection theme the house went through last night could lead into a player return, but I am pretty confident they’re going to have 4 people compete to re-enter, not 3. I guess we’ll find out tonight!
Who do you think is going home and who do you think will win HoH?
