Big Veto Competition Today; Saturday Feed Updates

Will Paul's plan to get Paulie out work?
Will Paul’s plan to get Paulie out work?

Good afternoon, everyone!  It’s an early start for me because the Big Brother house is already getting a jump on the day. Havenots and veto players were already picked, and it’s only 9:30am in the house.


If you’re wondering about the overnight report, it is coming. Pam is still going through the flashbacks and getting that together. I had to leapfrog her post because of how early production has them going today.

I am going to jump right into it….


  • 9:30am – Veto players picked. Michelle and Natalie are the only two not playing
    • Havenots were selected by what I assume was how they finished in the last HoH competition. Natalie, Nicole, and Michelle are the havenots for the week.
    • Natalie of course has the nevernot pass, so she is safe. I would think Nicole is safe as well because her card said she is safe from everything this week. It’s possible Michelle is the lone HN
    • Paul seems a bit grumpy today as he’s sitting around the table sulking.  Paulie asks if he’s pissed, and he says he is.
    • Paulie says “look man, I made amends with everyone in here, so I don’t know why you’re upset”
    • Paul replies “You made amends with everyone, and made it with me, but I don’t know why you did with me because you didn’t need to” (paraphrasing)
    • I guess Paulie had a bathroom conversation with Michelle before my post and told her more about the guys alliance. Paulie threw Paul under the bus and said he (Paul) initiated it. That is why Paul is pissy
    • Michelle jumps in to clear up how Paulie did namedrop Paul. She wasn’t going to miss an opportunity to battle with Paulie
    • Paulie told Michelle there was one guy in the alliance he really trusted. Paul calls him out on that and says “Well, who is it? It’s clearly not me. It’s clearly Corey. So yea, I’m a bit offended because I haven’t done anything to lose your trust”
    • Paulie – If you’re offended, sorry you’re offended
    • Natalie jumps in – “Did you say it would have been hysterical to get me out of the house?”
    • Paul says – “So you said you had manipulation to help you get Da’ out. Did you manipulate me?”  Michelle jumps in – “He did!” (watch out Paul, I think your PP alliance is about to be exposed)
    • Paul points out how he didn’t want Da’ out, and he did that for Paulie (this is true). He did the homie move by getting her out on his watch, but he still can’t be trusted?
    • Paul – Look man, I had your back, but I can’t say that right now
    • They talk about the plans Zakiyah had to go after Paul and Victor. Paulie denies that, but Michelle jumps in once again and says “she told me she wanted to put up Paul, Victor, you (James?)”  I love how Michelle keeps jumping in. Such a troublemaker, it’s great
    • Paulie to Michelle – You’re on the outside of the alliance, but you just manipulated everyone to save you twice. I gave you props for that.
    • James says he doesn’t think she manipulated anyone. She is a straight shooter
  • 9:40am – Had to do a timecheck. Yes, it’s only been 10 minutes
    • Victor just chillin in the back with a “Keep a straight face… keep a straight face” face
    • Paulie to Paul – “I never tossed your name under the bus.. except.. ”  Michelle jumps in to mock the ‘except’ part
    • Paulie asks Paul what shit he has ever said about James.  Paul says ‘a lot’, but won’t tell him the things he said
    • Paulie slips that he was working with one triangle, and Paul says ‘woah, I thought you said you were working with all of us (the guys)’
    • When Paulie tells him that when they got down to 5, they had to start clipping people, Paul says “Ohhh, so Vic, you and I were next apparently”
    • Paul points out how Paulie had 3 person alliances all around with a few different people.  Michelle jumps in once again “I wonder who is initiating it (with air quotes)” This is in regards to Paulie saying Paul was initiating the big alliance
    • After some back and forth, Paulie says “At the end of the day, there were 5 people I wanted to get to the final 5 with”, and Paul replies “Right, but there was also a triangle, and I wasn’t in that triangle”
    • Paul walks away and Paulie sits there thinking about his really shitty week
    • paulie-upset
    • Paul comes back and says “Paulie, there is no animosity”
    • Michelle starts in on Paulie now how he was the one who backdoored Victor
    • Then James jumps in and asks “Why is it every time Natalie’s name gets brought up, it’s always about her boobs.. FT, etc”
    • You guys need to sign up to the feeds and watch this.
    • Paulie gives some shitty reply, and Natalie jumps all over him.  He replies saying he thought they squashed the boob talk last night in their conversation and now that conversation seems fake. Natalie raises her voice “stop calling me fake!”
  • 9:50am – Now the kissing topic comes back up. How Paulie said “this would be the perfect spot to make out” to Natalie. James called him out on it, then Michelle once again jumps in and says “Why didn’t you say stuff like that to me or any other girl if you were only kidding?”
    • Michelle comments about how he is going home, and Paulie points out there is still a veto competition. Then mentions how he never kicked her while down
    • Michelle says “uhh yea you did.. yea you did” (but then didn’t have a good example. She would have had a great example if Victor nominated her yesterday because Paulie was literally going to stand up after noms and give a speech aimed directly at Michelle saying how she tried and failed, blah blah blah)
  • 10:00am – Michelle and Paulie are still going back and forth about her nomination
    • Paulie mentions trusting him, and she says ‘Of course I didn’t trust you, because you’re full of shit’
    • Paulie talks about his brother’s alliance and Michelle laughs and says “Ohh the detonators? You wanted to do a 2 person alliance with 5 people?”… then says “You’re never going to be a Cody or Derrick”
    • She continues… “Nobody in the house is like Cody or Derrick” and he said he tries, but he wanted more loyalty.  Michelle replies “Loyalty my ass! You had 3way alliances with everyone”
    • Michelle – “If this is your plan from the beginning, why did you send Victor home?”  James – “Seems like you were covering a lot of bases”
    • Michelle – “If you say loyalty one more time, I’m going to shoot myself in the head”  haha
    • James to Paulie – “If it’s squashed, it’s squashed. Why go tell me it’s squashed” (Paulie jumps in) “Becuase it’s squashed” (James continues) “then start it back up throwing me under the bus” (Paulie replies) “because it’s true!”
    • James asks Paulie how he can make final 3’s with everyone in the house.  Michelle jumps in and asks Paulie if they can have a final 3 (lol)
  • 10:10am – Michelle asks if Paulie is ready to play veto. Hopefully he has a clear head!  (sarcastic)
    • He tells her he has played in bigger games than this
    • Michelle tells him she guarantees if he got down to the final 5, he would have made final 2s with everyone, just like Derrick
    • Paulie, James, and Michelle are essentially talking in circles at this point.
  • 10:25am – People scatter and they boys have a brohug
    • grouphug
  • 10:30am – Talks break up. Paul heads into the bedroom to talk to Michelle
    • Michelle says she wanted to work him up more, but Paul says they did a good job rattling him
    • Natalie says she feels very secure in the house right now
    • Nicole comes in and they talk a little. The girls wish her luck today.  Apparently she really is a havenot, and the wording on the card was misleading. Apparently super safe from everything doesn’t mean everything.  Dumb
  • 11:30am – I am so behind, I had to jump live.
    • Nicole, Michelle are in the kitchen while Natalie is in the bathroom carrying on a conversation.  They are talking about how Z tried to blow the house up
    • Things have calmed in the house for now.  I’ll keep you updated if it flares up again

Check back for updates

    Was watching BBAD last night and James said (to Mary Ann and Meech…can’t remember if Vic was in the room then} that Julie Chen was his aunt. Hmmmmmm. Is this well know, or has it been talked about? I know that I’ve never heard that before. If true and if this nepotism thing gets around the house, it could come back and haunt James. Forgive me if this is common knowledge, but if it’s not I’d think that this would be something Production didn’t want out there.

    Hey Steve, I’m having so much fun checking out all the little do-dads on the upper right side of the screen (under the screen name). I still haven’t figured out how to work everything yet and don’t even understand some of it (not computer savvy), but it makes the site a lot more interesting….especially once I figure out everything…lol.

  3. NKogNeeTow

    Is anyone else having trouble accessing Jokers? I keep getting a Service Unavailable Error. Had that trouble a few times last night to. Gave up and signed off. Thought it was a sign from God to go to bed.

        I’m still having the same problem getting on Joker so I bit the bullet and just signed up for the feeds. I have it playing in another tab. Haven’t figured out how to work the cameras yet, but I’m trying. Hell, I’m not even sure I’m watching it live. I only signed up because I thought someone said that TGF was going off again, and I’m nosey as hell…lol.

        One thing I don’t like is it keeps buffering though. I find that very annoying. And it’s making me miss a lot. If it keeps up, I’ll just turn around and cancel it.

      No problem here.

      Cynthia. That’s because she is one!! She’s a nasty girl and has been like that all season. I really think she has big psych problems. She has no friends and doesn’t really say nice things about her family who I think she lives with and they are paying her bills. Also she said being in house was better than anything she had in her life and she would be happy there or in jury all the time. I feel sorry for her but don’t like her because she’s such a really deep down mean person and it’s not game play. This is how girls real life is

        I definitely think she’s someone who doesn’t like herself and the only way to build herself up for short moments is to tear other people down. I can’t tell if what she’s doing now is an act but the optimist in me wants to think that maybe this experience can help her be a better person. She does seem genuine in her realization that she actually likes Natalie and Bridget and is aware that she’s the one who didn’t give it a chance. Of course that could also be an act. They are still in a game so who knows

    I read somewhere that Michelle, James, Natalie and Paul all agreed to try to rile Paulie up today, so he’ll be rattled during the veto. Looks like that’s what they’re doing.

        I did notice your little vixen pic is missing from your profile here…you are back to a big “N”. Hmmm…
        On a game note…
        The house is blowing up, everyone is exposing everyone else’s shady dealings, and it looks like Paulie is the big target.
        Now, I think Paulie is a big jerk, but this is what happens when no one knows what in the hell they are doing in the house. Chaos…
        It will be interesting to see how the house will settle once he is gone.
        Personally, I think I would rather see Corey go, at least Paulie was playing the game. Corey is just a waste of space.

        I loved when she told Polly he would never be Derrick or Cody and that if he said loyalty one more time she was going to shoot herself in the head. This isn’t about Michelle but also love the little fist bump Vic and Paul gave each other while the argument was going on directly behind pollys back.

    I don’t like what’s happening right now in the house. Mich is the worst, she is a mean girl. I feel sorry for Paulie and i j hope he’ll win veto comp so that girl can go.

    • AIO_7

      We have forgiven Meech. Now scuttle on back to Bizzaro world.

    • Mell
      Mell (4692 comments)

      Yes, Polly Cauliflower is so easy to sympathize with. Like when he told the guys he would have his cousin’s beat the s*** out of a couple of girls in the house, when he said he was so upset over Max Z leaving and then within a few minutes told s room full of people and America how many times he had screwed her and where, when he said Bridget was a piece of s*** because she was a feminist and because she encouraged Natalie to stick up for herself, when he said last night that maybe he would just leave the jury house and the show couldn’t stop him or maybe it’s because he got cold and finally had to put a shirt back on. To borrow someone else’s comment from last night ” bless his little heart.”

  7. NKogNeeTow

    Okay, now is NOT the time to be having computer problems daggone it!

    Now the damn fool is trying to get James to pull him down if he wins the Veto, so Nat can go up. Is he serious?

    Not using that Veto on Ze really kick poly in the butt. I bet he’s regretting that decision now. He could have gotten Michelle and Bridget out.

    Okay, had to keep refreshing. He is throwing Paul under the bus so bad that he(Paul) should have treadmarks all across his back.

    I’m still trying to figure out why they voted Bridgette out over Michelle? Sure it’s gonna create a fun week of drama, but strategy wise wouldn’t the better move for most of them have been to vote out Michelle? Maybe they were thinking comps only and forgot the social side of the game.

    • AIO_7

      Even Meech is still trying to figure that out.

      Gerardo (2748 comments)

      I think it was just once again Paulie thinking with his ego and not his brain. Pauline was pissed at Bridgette because he (the almighty, omnipotent Paulie) saved her from eviction and “brought her into the fold”, and then she turned on him. So he convinced his minions that she was playing “every side of the house” and since it was DE, there was no time for any real discussion or deals to be made.

        Paulie and Corey were also pissed that Bridgette declared herself as a feminist and instantly wanted to get her out bc she said she was one, which is honestly probably why they took her out instead of Meech. They just can’t stand strong women.

      • Avatar
        Gerardo (2748 comments)

        That’s a great point Theresa, Paulie and Corey DID mention that Bridgette was a feminist several times, and they said it derisively, as if being a feminist is a negative thing. Smh.

        I think Paul and Vic only went along with voting out Bridgette because they were treading lightly until the next HOH comp. They knew Paulie is a strong competitor and they didn’t want to piss him off further in case he became the next HOH. They also knew that Michelle had shown herself to be an incredible provocateur, and could help them throw Paulie off his game this week.

      • Mell
        Mell (4692 comments)

        You guys are right. Even though he was mad at Natalie and Michelle, the conversation with Bridget was fresh and I think that’s what was on his mind. He also made comments to Max Z saying that being a feminist is just like being a racist and that he couldn’t believe she admitted to being one on national TV.

  15. NKogNeeTow

    If they don’t pick up those damn clothes off that floor, I’m going to have an anurysm(sp).

  16. JD

    People are speculating because of how many seats in jury that Friday is going to be a buy back. This sucks. It’s giving Paulie a greater chance to comeback. If he doesn’t have the round trip ticket (odds are pretty high CBS’s boy does have it) then that gives CBS another way to get Paulie back in the house. I think one biyo back a season is enough. First we had the competition in the beginning for the first 5 for one to come back. Now we have envelopes with a round trip ticket. Envelopes mind you that no one has seen since picked. Also would like to point out that none of the cast was smart enough to pick up on the clues so CBS had to tell them. The round trip is part of the game. Now we are at two buy backs. Long winded story in a nut shell. If the envelope is legit and Paulie doesn’t have the round trip they can get him back on Friday. Friday is just a fail safe show. If he does have the ticket then Friday could be anything as a filler. If they bring back yet another person then the twist really sucked. Bringing back three people? What’s the point of voting them out? The revolving door doesn’t work for me. One buy back a season is enough.

      Paulie has a 1 in 8 chance of coming back, isn’t that 12.5o/o (my math skills are really suspect) Do you think CBS would tamper with the cards? Don’t they keep the cards in their possession?

      • Avatar
        Gerardo (2748 comments)

        I’m not sure where the houseguests keep the tickets, but I would think CBS would want them to keep them somewhere secure. Anything could happen to the tickets if they remain in the houseguests’ possession (especially considering what happened in the last Veto comp). Also, even if the houseguests do keep the tickets in their possession, they’ve been locked out of house several times since they got the tickets, so there certainly have been opportunities for CBS to switch them out, if they wanted to. I’m not normally a conspiracy theorist, but if Paulie has this round trip ticket, I’m calling BS.

      • AIO_7

        And there is also the possibility that we have a nepotism favorite too………James Chen? Just askin’.

      Mell (4692 comments)

      I don’t think they should have done the battle back pre jury. ( not complaining about the results) If they were going to do the round trip ticket twist, they had to at least have a potential jury buyback to cover themselves for the weeks the show is scheduled to be on. That way if the round-trip isn’t used, then you have someone come back in the house by way of jury. It keeps the show on track as far dates for show to end.

  17. NKogNeeTow

    Paul and James are trying to figure out what kind of Comp is coming up. Paul thought it might be a Jury buyback but James doesn’t think so because of the cards they have. James did mention about the game reverting or something.

    Didn’t they do a game reset in some of the seasons? That might be a way for ex-HG to get back into the house. God I hope not.

  18. NKogNeeTow

    TGF and Bambi all cuddled up sleeping in the bed. The Rat has no place to go so grabs some scrunchies an scampers back to the kitchen with Nat and Mich. Nat went to nap in the LR and Mich is going to lay down in the HN room. The Rat scampers to the bathroom….alone. Awww 🙁

  21. Shivani33

    The plan made to rattle Paulie before the veto comp was used well. With the exception ( naturellement) of Nicole and Corey, everyone had a go at him. It has been made clear to him that he’s their target from now on regardless of whether he wins the Veto. It’s so true what Michelle said a few nights ago, when she told him that she was going to blow up his game but didn’t have to because he did it for her.

    The fantastic comments on this site are an education in themselves. Insights shared have wings. Opinions evolve as the game does. Michelle has gone from a crying meanie to a player, for example, and an artist in search of her truer self. Very redeeming.

    This young lady has taken the social experiment of Big Brother as a chance to learn so much about herself, really willing to look both without and within! I feel that I’ve been lucky to watch her grow, and that growth takes courage. Natalie’s warmth of being has been there for her every step of the way, never rejecting Michelle during her ups and downs. Even when she herself has been feeling hurt. Sincerely, I say that old Southern thang, bless their hearts. And the games within the game here just keep getting better and better.

    • NKogNeeTow

      I agree Shi. And I have to take a play out of Mich’s book and admit when I’m wrong…well, partially wrong. I’ve been saying that all of the girls in the house are mean. And they are to a certain extent. BUT, where I once thought Nat might have been the meanest (you know that old saying…it’s always the quiet ones), I thought she may have secretly been the meanest because she came off as the nicest. Don’t get me wrong, I still believe she has that streak in her…we all do to a certain extent. But I now she that she is genuinely nice, and what I thought was meaness is more of a stubborn streak. She doesn’t back down. Now THAT, I respect more than anything. I LOVE people who don’t bow down to bullies. She showed she can stand her ground while still keeping a level head.

      Paul, I feel the same way about. He came off as the Court Jester most of the time. Who knew there was such a deep thinker and strategizer (sp) hiding out in that beard. These last few days has brought him forth as a real player. The only thing I’m kind of sad about is that since he’s gotten serious about the game, he’s kind of lost his playful side. Loud obnoxious Paul has disappeared a little. I miss some of his little phrases and some of the crazy things he use to say (not all the cursing stuff). I hope he continues the comical stuff in his DRs. They always cracked me up.

        Mell (4692 comments)

        The upside to Paul being calmer is I don’t have to keep turning the volume down every time he gets excited! I’ve gone back and forth with him. The first week I couldn’t stand him then I was impressed he was able to get himself out of being the obvious next person to go. I went back to not liking him because even though I didn’t mind him going back and forth between those two groups with information when Frank was there, I was not impressed that he was so loud and obvious about it. He also let Paulie run his Hoh. He seems to have found that middle ground and has good insights. I loved last night when Nicloe couldn’t convince him that she was dickmatized enough to be happy about a 5 guy aliance!
