Monday Feed Updates – Veto Meeting and More



I hope everyone had a good weekend. It’s a bit disappointing to see all the ‘going back to school’ and ‘last beach day of summer’ posts on facebook. Summer goes by too damn quick, and before I know it, I’ll be checking the upcoming weather for potential snowstorms rather than beach days. Pissed.

As far as the house goes, there has been almost no movement on the Michelle front.  At least on a game standpoint.  At some point through the afternoon, someone flew in a drone that had a small blowup doll on it with dark hair.  There was some wording, but the house couldn’t make out was it was.  Nicole got paranoid the message was to her about going after the wrong person, while Michelle started calling herself fat and ugly over it. I think the season is getting to everyone, and it’s a good thing there is only about 3 weeks left of the season, otherwise they may be checking out of the house and into a mental hospital.

Speaking of Nicole’s paranoia, that has also been impacting her on another game issue. She had a long talk with Corey about Victor and worrying whether or not he’s going to randomly flip on Paul and vote him out this week. While on the outside, it seems silly, to her credit this has been a crazy season, so it’s hard not to be just a little paranoid about things like that. In order to ease her mind, Corey offered to use the bribe on Victor to secure his vote. Her other option was to replace Paul with Natalie, but that will fire the shots she is not quite ready to do, yet.


At the end of the day, I don’t expect Nicole to use it, and I do expect Corey to give Victor the $5k. For some reason Victor was one of his first thoughts when he got the money, so I think he’s been itching to give it to him for whatever reason (that can be taken bad)


  • 10:00am – Nicole is up and dressed early thinking the veto meeting was early today. Victor and Paul join her to chat
  • 10:25am – Feeds down for veto meeting
  • 11:45am – Feeds back, noms are the same
  • 12:00pm – Most are outside relaxing, Michelle is working on a last week sunburn
    • michelle-tanning
  • 1:00pm – Paul, Victor and Natalie are inside cooking, while Nicole is chatting with Corey outside.
    • Nicole is talking about sleep eating. My wife does that. It’s when you snack on something if it’s nearby when you wake up briefly.
    • Nicole is again worried about Victor and Paul going against them this week.  Corey says nobody is after us right now.  (yes, right now)
    • Corey is talking game about how he thinks they’ve been good on all 3 aspects (competitive, stratetic, social), while Victor has only been good at 1 (competitive). That’s kind of unfair to compare two versus one because only one will get the votes.  Corey has had a good social game, but the other two sucked. Nicole has had a decent competitive and strategic game, but none of the girls like or trust her.  Victor is obviously competitive, but I think he’s had a good social game as well. Everyone likes him enough to overlook any flaws in his strategic game
    • Nicole thinks the duo is by far the most strategic in the house.  Again, by forgetting it’s not a team comp, that is a flaw against her strategy… that said, I agree she is one of the most strategic people left. That’s not saying much.
    • Nicole says they have gotten themselves out of some real bad situations. The only bad situations they’ve really been in has been Corey this past week simply because James was the swing vote and had thoughts about sending him home.
  • 3:00pm – The “Final Four” is in the room talking about studying days and things like that for the upcoming comps.
    • As soon as Victor and Paul leave, Nicole tells Corey “I do not want to help them study. I know so much more than them and don’t want to give them an advantage”
    • nicole-face
    • They talk for a bit and then Nicole goes to sleep
  • 3:45pm – Nicole sleeping, Victor trying to figure out something to make with slop
  • 4:30pm – Very slow afternoon.  James making dinner while Victor hangs out nearby. Corey outside.
  • 5:30pm – Victor has finished his slop-brownie creation and Corey approves.  The rest are still sleeping (other than James who is walking around)
    • Victor and Corey joking around about how useless the care package was this week
  • 6:00pm – Michelle is awake and cooking. Corey went upstairs to lay with Nicole for a bit. While I’m sure they’re talking about something very deep and thought provoking, I have decided to remain in the kitchen
  • 7:00pm – Nicole is awake. She had some of James’ extra cheese mac then relaxed for a bit and went inside. I’m guessing to poop.
  • 7:30pm – James has a chat with Michelle telling her again that he thinks she is safe. He is pretty sure Paul is going home
    • Meanwhile, Nicole thinks Corey is mad at her. He’s not. She is sitting at the table trying to figure it out
    • Oh and during the conversation with James, Michelle justified Nicole’s decision this week.  She said the first out should be Nicole because her brains
    • At one point during that, Michelle was alone and eating chips. I swear production messed with us because the volume was cranked. You can hear her lips smacking. Was pretty gross, even for me
  • 7:45pm – Nicole is outside by the hottub trying to figure out what Corey is mad at
    • Time for a break, so I don’t listen to Nicole pesture Corey for the next hour or two
  • 10:00pm – Victor and James are playing pool. Nicole getting ready for a DR session
    • victor2
    • I know it’s hard to ask here since you probably can’t see it, but has any experienced an issue connecting to the site today?
    • I see a bunch of people are, hopefully I can have the issue resolved by tomorrow.  Sorry for any issues.
  • 11:45pm – James is outside reassuring Natalie and Michelle once again that Michelle is safe and he’s been right 98% of the time this season

    Actually, the better elimination would be GNat. That would help to stop a Munchkin Duopoly of Lames and GNat. I just don’t think SNacole wants Leech in the house any more.

    Pissed as well. Hate winter.

    This will be the third time Michelle is OTB with everyone thinking she is for sure going home!!

      Do James and Nat think Michelle is going home? From their actions, their conversations with each other, as well as Nat’s conversation with Michelle last night, I would think Nat and James are almost positive Michelle is staying and Paul is going home this week. Unless maybe I missed something (which is entirely possible, as I’ve been slacking big time keeping up with this boring group this week)?

    Honestly Corey should use the bribe on James to vote out Michelle. Or if he wants to give the bribe to Nicole then an easy one would be not to use the veto at all. Or in the case of Vic to ensure things are still good bribe him to vote Michelle(things change quickly in the house people bounce checks all the time) but the bribe is better used on James since he swings often.

    He needs to go with the plan to bribe Victor to throw the next HOH competition. That makes more since at this point. Also Nicorey are stupid anyway because teaming up with Paul and Victor is suicide to their game. they can’t beat Paul or Victor in the final HOH competition.

    They are easy targets especially if they keep James or Natalie

      Nicole almost needs to use the veto to get out a powerful player like James instead of going for Michelle who isn’t really winning anything she is easy to get out later ;but to do that she needs comp beasts like Paul and Vic to shield her. Perhaps Corey’s bribe should be use the veto to put up James or have Natalie throw the next HOH comp

  7. Alda

    James wouldn’t vote out Meech.Nat would never forgive him for that move.Make the $5,000 deal with Victor.

  8. Shivani33

    Nicorey imagine that Victor will be more beholden to them if given the 5k. Nicole doesn’t want to shake it up with James right now. What if he wins control of the next HoH? And Victor has replaced Paulie as Corey’s fantasy boy crush now that Paulie and his hot pants aren’t on the scene. Bizarre as it iis, yesterday while chatting about giving Victor the bribe, Corey and Nicole told each other that Victor isn’t very smart and hasn’t got much strategy. Victor has been playing this angle well and often mentions how much he wants vengeance on James.

    Shivani33, I think you’re on point about Vic. I think he’s the only person in the house who really means it when he talks about loyalty. (I don’t blame the others tho) He always seemed to like hanging out with Nicole and Corey the most even before Paulie left. Vic is by far my favorite but Paul has needed to steer him in the right direction several times in the strategy department. I hope Vic or Paul win it all at the end. Its not a bad move to let Vic and Paul take out James and Natalie for you, if you’re Nicole. Of course, there’s that tricky part of getting rid of them at 4. Nicole begged James for the hoh this week and we’ve already seen that doesn’t work on Vic. (with Natalie)

    Thurs, Sept. 8th – 5 HGs left

    Wed, Sept. 14th – 3 HGs left
    Wed, Sept. 21st – Finale & winner revealed

    This is why I keep saying that regardless of Nicole’s reasoning, she’s making the right move for her own game by targeting Michelle this week. While Victor is certainly the biggest threat in the game OVERALL, Michelle is definitely the biggest threat to Nicole’s game specifically. The other two pairs (Paul/Vic and James/Nat) are after each other and both pairs think they are aligned with Nicole, so the only person who would want Nicole out soon is Michelle. If Nicole gets rid of Michelle this week, she will almost certainly clinch a spot in the Final 4 (and probably even Final 3), regardless of who wins HOH the next couple weeks.

    @stevebeans Yes, I had problems most of today connecting to the site. For a while I couldn’t connect at all (I kept getting an internal server error), then later I could get to the site but couldn’t log into my account. At first I thought maybe it was just me, but when I noticed how quiet the comment section has been tonight, I realized others may be experiencing this issue as well.

      For the last 24 hours I wasn’t able to connect to the site. I received the error 500 message. The same thing happen last week but it was only for an hour or so. I went on FB and was able to mention it in a comment there (Big Brother Junkies) that I wasn’t able to connect. I was going through withdrawals. I missed my BB conversations here.

    @stevebeans I’m having the same issues others are. Anytime I click on something on the page I have a pop up that says “leave page” or “stay on page”. If I want to post a comment I have to click “leave page”. It posts the comment but then closes the page. If I click “stay on page” then I cannot post comments.

    They were talking about using the five grand to party with, now they just have to figure out some reason to give it to someone to pay for the partying.

    Corey also asked James if he would take it to throw the HOH and James said sure would if it were a mental comp that he couldn’t win anyway. Nicole didn’t like this idea maybe because she’d rather party with it later.
