Friday Night Feeds – Welcome Back Victor

Victor and his allies plot a strategy
Victor and his allies plot a strategy

Well, the Battle Back is officially over, and pretty much what I expected to happen, happened. I picked Victor or Tiffany as the returning players, and of course they were the two who faced off to re-enter. I am a bit surprised Tiffany did as poorly as she did on her round, but nothing else shocked me about that chain of events. Jozea dominated Glenn, but lost to Victor in a match that was probably edited to look closer than it actually was (I bet Jesus Jr was practically crawling back to the platform toward the end). When I realized Bronte’s comp would be a mental one, I improved her odds slightly, but I still knew she’d lose. Look, Victor is arrogant, and has a pretty annoying laugh, but the guy is a damn beast. He’s one of those rare players who have everything it takes to win these type of competitions (intelligence, endurance, and strength), and if he goes with Frank, those two will be deadly in the next HoH competition.


Speaking of HoH.. we still don’t know who won, but seeing as Victor was not given any form of immunity that we know of, he’d better have played his ass off because I have a strong feeling he’ll be sitting on the block next to Frank if not (note – I am surprised they did not give him immunity. To their credit, Big Brother has done a fairly good job with these twists this season, so if they just leave him hanging, that’s pretty dumb). Speaking of Big Brother and Victor, I read a bunch of people say they messed up in the DR sessions. They filmed Victor with the belt a lot, so they thought that gave away the winner, but it didn’t. Those DR sessions were clearly done shortly after each competition which was done shortly after each respective HoH comp a week apart from each other.  I know it looks strange, but they didn’t mess up. That is why Jozea had the belt in his winning DR session but not in his losing one a week later.

Alright, an hour or so to go before feeds go live. I have no clue what we’ll learn when they return, so you’ll be finding out along with me!

  • 9:00pm – Feeds are back. But they’re messed up. Had volume, now trying to reset them. Awesome.
    • Da’Vonne is talking to Zaki and Nicole and they mentioned something about Frank’s neck turning red at the nomination ceremony.
    • Sounds like Bridgette and Frank are on the block
  • Meanwhile, Frank, Bridgette, Victor and a few others are in the safari room talking
    • Frank is talking about how he thinks he’s no longer a threat because he won two easy roadkill comps
    • James may be the HoH
    • Yup, he’s the HoH and Bridgette is the other nom
    • frank-victor
    • Despite being told by Da’Vonne just a few days ago that she wants showmances out, James went after Frank rather than Day. Smart move? We’ll see.

New poll up

[poll id=”19″]
  • Sounds like the guys are in Frank’s head again and he thinks he can approach James with the veto and try to push for Day out. I bet Paulie and Paul are just playing along
    • Everyone but Paulie and Frank leave the room, and Frank asks him about Bridgette
    • Paulie says Derrick told him before he went in, if one of your boys is getting close with a girl, you gotta cut her.
    • I am hearing that the HoH competition was an endurance competition, so it’s no shock James won. I bet it was the wall. I’m going to be upset if I couldn’t watch that
  • 9:20pm – Corey enters and Frank asks him if he’d use PoV on him. Corey humors him and says sure.  (suuuure)
    • Meanwhile, Paul enters the HN room to talk to James who is in there with Natalie. Why the HN room?  No clue. Maybe Nat is still an HN and James will sleep down there all week because he wants a bigger target on himself
    • Paul says ‘homeboy’ and ‘homegirl’ were in the safari room playing victim and shitting on James (I assume Frank and Bridgette).
    • They (F/B) were saying “I like this side of Paul” because they think he’s upset about something different.  Oh Paul, such a pawn
    • Paul says if they ask him one more thing he’s going to call them out on all their shit (He won’t. He’s all talk)
    • And again, why is James in the HN room laying in a bumper car?
    • james-hoh
    • You know what I would do if I had a ‘flirtmance’ and I won HoH and she was HN?  Cya in a week!  Have fun on slop.  This image above is James begging to be evicted.
    • Natalie tells James that she heard Paulie sympathizing with Frank and saying he can’t believe James did that. (essentially putting all the blame on James)
    • James said he just did what the house wanted, and now they’re putting it all on him. Natalie said it’s because they’re a bunch of bitches
    • And yes, it was the wall endurance comp. Grrr
    • James says if Frank pulls himself off, he’s not putting Day up. Why would he? She told him she’s against showmances… but she has his back. Sure
    • James thinks he messed up by putting Bridgette up
    • Natalie – “We’re safe until jury and that’s all we really want”.  Glad she has her goals set high
    • The talk goes to Michelle. James says she’s mean and Natalie says she’s a bully even though they get along
  • 10:10pm – The HoH competition was 5 1/2 hours. Dammit
    • Paulie comes into the HN room to join the conversation
    • They are talking about how Bridgette has been treated. I guess the house had a birthday celebration for a stuffed giraffe, but ignored Bridgette’s birthday
  • 10:50pm – Feeds switch to Paul, Victor, and Corey in kitchen
    • Paul whispers something after Frank walks by but I couldn’t hear what he said. I don’t think others did, either.
    • Frank comes back and they’re about to eat some burgers
  • 11:00pm – Paulie, Paul and Natalie are chatting in the HN more about insults, and watching what you say on camera, etc.
    • Anyway, PoV tomorrow. Could be a big one for Frank

Overnight in the morning!

    My biggest “give away” that Victor possibly had won (last week) was that during jeff loops, there was a whole half hour of commentary by him on feed high lights, and none of the other evicted HGs had that (That I saw, I usually don’t have patience to watch the Jeff Loops). I’m just glad it wasn’t Jozea.

  2. Colby

    They didn’t give John any kind of immunity last year, did they? He got sent right back to jury, right?

  3. Clairebear

    I was honestly surprise Victor seemed as into it as he was. He seemed so low key in his interview, and was clearly ready to be done with the house when he was evicted.

  4. Avatar

    Just curious, Steve, are you not ding power rankings this year? I don’t think I have seen any and those were always my favorite!

  5. CLangley

    Patiently waiting on live feeds so I can see who’s scheming, who’s baking cookies and if anyone’s hanging out in the HOH.

  6. danmtruth

    I’m trying to remember who it was that was talking about the signs. I want to say it was Bronte and Bridget Start in the bathroom where your trip starts in Ocho Rios and so on Funny it will only be in play for 4 weeks If they play as normal thats 4 eviction with a double thrown in that makes 5 HG gone So we go down too 7 players while the room is in play A rewind button? golden veto ? Viewing room were you see and hear all rooms ( thats too big )

    They did give it away in the DR sessions with Victor. Victor held the belt and mentioned who he went against when the competition was taking place. When Jozea won and he showed the bealt he never mentioned who he was going against because yes it was filmed right after his win and before he went against Victor. Again Victor showed the belt twice when he beat both Tiffany and Bronte and was talking about going against them.

    Victor is so pumped and his comp rendition proved he’s totally a competitor. I think he was oblivious to how the other HG’s felt about him but now with this reentry. He will be a force to reckoned with when it comes to these individual comp’s now.

  9. Avatar

    Out of them all Victor is the least annoying IMHO. ANYONE better than Joz. (Glenn not in equation)

    I’m willing to bet that although James is the HOH, he’s just doing what Paulie wants. Probably got Paulie to agree to not put up Natalie for X number of weeks in exchange. I’m not even sure he would have negotiated anything for his own safety, just Natalie.

    James seems like a good guy (although the pranks would get very old, very quickly) but he’s not a great houseguest, he’s really just a floater, who if he wins anything will do what the house wants. I’m not sure he needed to be on multiple seasons. Same with Nicole.

    good to see victor back… james is playing the same as he did last season, just floating along. He’s too busy finding a woman than actually playing the game! he better not win AFP again!

    Why is Paul so upset??

  13. CLangley

    I wonder why they had the nomination already if James doesn’t even have the HOH room yet? Gahhh now we’ll have to wait till Sunday to find out what happened with this HOH comp for him to already have noms in place.

    • Avatar

      My guess/assumption is the Tiff/Vic face off was last night… HOH was probably first thing this morning. But since it lasted closer to 6hrs it pushed everything back. They probably did noms like an hour later. Now production is just catching up with everything. They will probably do the HOH reveal at midnight tonight.

    During the clue about the secret room, certain words were green. Secret room departures now and then it showed the plane.

    Ok I haven’t watched afterdark at all bc I’ve been watching feeds. But I turned it on tonight and there have been like 20 fbombs in 2min… I thought they bleeped them on afterdark???!? I’m in shock for national television… I expect it on the feeds.

  16. Avatar

    I asked this before but I’m gonna ask again. If those clues have been in the house this whole time and no one has noticed them, why do they think they will notice them now? Do y’all think maybe they put them up during the lockdown a few days ago? Or maybe they will give them hints? Now that they’ve told us viewers, someone will find the room. I don’t think they would let it not happen. What do y’all think?

  17. Avatar

    Do you all remember the secret power that Jeff got? The ability to VETO the HOH nominations or something. All I know is I want FaVonne to figure it out. I think shwbos getting a bad rap. I know she won’t win but she is drama to watch.

    I think Victor could blow up Paul’s game. If Bridgette wins POV watch Frank convince her to use it on him.

    • Avatar

      That’s hilarious! Frank would try i think and Bridgette prob would too! She lives the taste of that frank kool-aid! Lol

    • Avatar

      Bridgette does not think that Frank will ‘throw her under the bus’. Stupid girl. Everyone is expendable in Frank’s game. Everyone. I’m glad they are on the block against each other. I hope James wins the POV and keeps it the same. This will make the vote on Thursday night very interesting.

  18. Shivani33

    Some subtle mood changes showed tonight. Paulie was not happy at all when he was clued in to how Zakiyah often does the mean girl thing, and talked about the distinction between gameplay versus just acting like a nasty human being. The distance he was feeling from her was visible. Also, Paul wasn’t liking some of the two-faced hypocrisy he’s been seeing. This disillusionment with some of his allies’ attitudes was one thing he confided about to Victor. Paul still cooked and had some fun but was obviously doing some serious thinking, maybe going through some changes about who he vibes with and thinks that he can trust going forward.

    • Avatar

      @Shivani33:. Before I even respond I just have to say how much Paulie’s Paul look-alike transformation “BUGS” the living hell out of me!!! What the f**k is he doing? I think it looks STUPID on him! I was just wondering if Paulie is looking for reasons to distance himself from Z. He knows showmances are always targeted. He was also warned by both his brother, Cody, and Derrick to stay away from showmances and that if anyone of his “boys” gets too involved with a girl to break it up. Also he knows it’s getting further into the game and he needs to tighten up his strategy. Or…..he could just simply not like it if Z is being a mean girl. Maybe I’m giving him too much credit or reading waaay too much into it.

  19. jimbo

    I wrote here in the first few weeks that I was sure Derrick (Cody’s bromance) would coach up Paulie before he entered the house. Seems I got that one right. Also, liked James last season…not so much this year.

  20. danmtruth

    The fact that Paulie mention how Derrick warned him about showmances That he mention it to Frank seeing that he and Corey are the two most visible in a showmance with Zzzzz and Nichole. Or is he just trying to plant seeds to make a case to go after James and Nat?

    on many of the Sun,Wed, Thur shows production have shown those signs I must admit I did not notice the color changes Also you never got a long shot of the departure board. Now it makes me think when the departure board fell was that part of the game? . Along with showing those signs production also zooms in often on the plane and those Chinese cats . I’m I just getting overly tinfoil hat crazy seeing things that are not their?

    Paul is trying so hard to do things just for camera time The muffin man The plans to have the BIG dramatic speech. only problem he needs to win something to be a more important player

  21. g8trgrl4life

    As long as the secret room doesn’t have Jesse in it, I’m fine with whatever is in there.

  22. Avatar

    Who do we think Victor is most likely to align with?

  23. Michele Ryan

    Wow, I really can’t wait until the PoV happens people. I don’t want Frank to come off. I’d like to see him go. Is there a back door plan? Is Victor going to go up if things change? Da’ needs to go though at some point. My biggest concern is. if Frank stays he might win HoH. Ugh ;(. Thank you Steve Beans as usually you RULE 🙂
