The houseguests got an unexpected message from their loved ones that caused many of them to be in tears. But first, with the threat of eviction Paul and Michelle were still left on the block after Nicole the current HOH did not use the POV on either nominee. Plus, the evicted houseguest left some deafening tones as they exited from the Big Brother House. Julie Chen also confirmed to the houseguests and to America that there would not be another double eviction, even though the live finale will be on Wednesday, September 21. Here’s my recap of last night’s episode.
A Waste Of A BB Bribe
Corey’s power he received from America was soon to expire and needed to make a decision on what he wanted to do. It was important for him to make sure this would benefit his game but also wanted to run it passed Nicole. Unsure where his loyalty lies, Corey thought to use the BB Bribe on Victor to ensure he votes to evict Michelle. During an early morning Nicole noticed Victor talking to Michelle and paranoia sunk in. Nicole thought maybe Victor was working with Michelle and so the plan to use the BB Bribe on Victor was born. It surprises me that our Michigander Nicole would think Victor would go against his only ally who has been loyal to him since the beginning. Nonetheless Corey brought up the idea to him and Paul, which solidified their final four alliance.
Nicole’s Tie Breaker Vote
During the live eviction vote, our other Michigander Michelle made another great speech in which she wanted to call people out and show who her target was. Unfortunately for Michelle Meyer the 23-year-old Nutritionist from Washington Township, MI was voted out by a tie breaker vote from none other than threw current HOH the other Michigander Nicole. Which before Michelle walked out the door she left guns blazing and continued to call out people mainly Nicole for her shady “snake like” game. For Nicole all she could do was try and fight back but it didn’t matter because she got who she wanted out but in the process showed where her loyalty lies, which wasn’t with James or Natalie but with Paul and Victor. In Michelle’s post eviction interview with Julie Chen, she continued to be “Big Meech,” and even spoke with the audience saying she was thankful as a super fan to have had the experience.
My Ranking Of The Houseguests
1. Nicole – Getting out the other Michigander who was targeting her was best for her game and continued to make alliances to ensure her safety in the game.
2. Corey – Using the BB Bribe was a waste but being Nicole’s “ride or die,” helps him get further in the game.
3. Victor – After being evicted last week and winning another come back he’s not wasting third opportunity to win the prize.
4. Paul – Friendship is still strong, but being on the block didn’t help however he gained a final four deal with Nicole & Corey with Victor.
5. James – Looking forward to seeing his DR of this blindside after assuring Michelle she was safe.
6. Natalie – She had power last week, but this week was on the losing side and with less houseguests she’s starting to get a target on her back.
My Prediction For HOH & Nominations
With only six left in the game it’s getting more important than ever to win HOH. As I predicted yesterday that Victor being the competition beast that he is, I still believe that with this HOH competition he’ll win giving him his third HOH. In doing so his nominations will be obvious that both Natalie and James will be put on the block. However, if he was smart, he’d put the returning houseguests Nicole and James to pit them against each other to make a deal with him. Tune in on Sunday at 8pm on CBS Detroit to see if my predictions are correct, who wins HOH and who they put up for eviction!
