Good afternoon, everyone! It’s eviction day in the Big Brother house, and it’s down to Corey and Victor decided by James. Plain and simple. Everyone else in the house is irrelevant tonight as one person will decide the fate between a super strong competitor who was the crush of the girl he has fallen for, or the dopey guy who lucked into one HoH, and has made a not-so-secret agreement they’ll hook each other up with $10k should the two boremances make the final 4.
I know, it’s really a tough decision for James.
While Victor made a pretty compelling push to Natalie and Michelle last night (with James in the room also there but not contributing), I believe he hurt himself each time Natalie talked up Victor and made it sound like she wanted to keep him. In an ironic way, the better he did with the girls, the worse he did with James. Even though I am pretty convinced James doesn’t want Victor around because of Natalie competition, I do agree with him that going with Nicole and Corey is the better option. It’s just common sense this late in the season. You don’t need a competitive beast to do the dirty work any more because there is not much dirty work to be done.
There are conspiracy theories out there that James and Nicole had a secret alliance heading into the game, and of course the talk of hooking each other up with $10k in the final 4, but the reality is, for James and Natalie, getting out Victor is the right move. It’s the right move for anyone not named Victor or Paul to be honest. I like the guy and actually hope he beasts his way through the rest of the season, but looking at it from each players’ perspectives, he’s not good for any of their games.
Tonight, I see Victor being eliminated and then obviously competing in the jury buyback competition. It will be an endurance competition, and I’m going to assume it’s the type where everyone but Nat (and Michelle?) play against each other (including jury). The last jury member standing gets back in the house, and the last person standing wins HoH (and it can be the same person).
I don’t anticipate much drama in the house this afternoon, and I still have some unpacking to do, so I am not sure I’ll have any live thread going. I do know tonight’s live episode should be pretty intense, and I am anxiously awaiting that!
