Monday Madness Live Updates



Good evening, everyone! My afternoon thread was getting a big long, and there won’t be an overnight report tomorrow morning as Amy is busy, so I figured I’d try to blog late into the night. There is no way I’m waking up early to pump out a report, so I’ll try to stay awake as late as I can. Had a coffee, and ready to go watch people talk bad about each other behind their backs like it’s middle school all over again!


  • 9:05pm – It appears the happy couple is no longer fighting as James and Natalie are on the couch and she’s pulling glitter from his face. So romantic.
    • If you missed it earlier, the pair were having a mini spat because James joked about snuggling with Nicole.
    • Remember, a week or so back, Nicole mentioned how James said he had to ‘run it by Natalie’ before they could talk. She said he sounded like he was kidding, and maybe he was, but there was apparently some truth to that joke as Natalie may be a sweet girl, but yikes. Run, James, run.
    • James starts whispering about getting the votes. I get excited about real talk, pop on my headset to hear the whisper, and it turns out he was just joking that he got the votes to evict Natalie this week. Time to check outside…
  • 9:30pm – Nicole is in the HoH room with Corey and she is telling him the story about how James was kind of flirting with her and saying he needs to get a girl like her. Corey half jokes that he’s going to back off and let James do his thing.
    • Corey then gets up and leaves to start dinner
    • Nicole talks to herself after he leaves saying “is he actually mad about that? It was supposed to be a joke. He is weird about stuff like that”
    • Personally I think Corey is forcing distance from Nicole for whatever reason and looking for random excuses to back off. Maybe he doesn’t like her, maybe he does but wants to remain single, or maybe he doesn’t want to have a relationship on TV.  Either way, it’s clear Corey takes dumb little things like that and blows them up for excuses.
  • 10:00pm – Michelle and Natalie are outside in the hottub talking about underwear.
    • She kept her mic off for awhile before jumping into the hottub where she can leave it off.  She was then called to DR (which is rare this late) and said she hoped she wasn’t in trouble
    • Michelle came out 15 minutes later walking pretty fast outside before the feeds cut to the kitchen.
    • They likely know Michelle will talk about her (probably) getting yelled at, but don’t want to show fish during BBAD, so all feeds on Tiffany and Paul (ugh) for the moment
  • 10:20pm – Feeds finally back outside, but they’re on Nicole and Corey.  Nicole is bringing up the awkwardness earlier in the HoH room.
    • She tries to back off the topic but he continues on and she finally mentions how he said ‘Well I’ll just back off’.  Corey kind of changes topic and lets her go to the bathroom
    • Nicole and Corey are having a weird discussion/fight or whatever the hell you call it over the comments made earlier. I didn’t think anything could top the crazy Natalie/James argument, but this is it. Wow. I am staying up late to blog this weirdness??  Give me some real drama
  • 11:00pm – Paulie is up in the HoH room talking to Nicole and Corey
    • Shirt store? Never heard of one
      Shirt store? Never heard of one
    • They all agree they believe Tiffany on what she has said about Day, but still want to vote her out over Day because she is attached to Frank (makes sense, for now)
    • Corey is terrified of a reset button, so it sounds like he’s going to ‘play his cards’ at the very last minute
    • They’re still planning on a Tiffany, Frank, Day order. 90% chance that doesn’t work out like that and something goes wrong. Not even counting the returning player they’ll have to evict in the middle of that
    • Drinking game – take a shot of vodka every time they say “100%” on the feeds.  Alcohol poisoning within 2 hours, 100%
    • Paulie talks about how they (Frank, Tiff, etc) came up with ‘fake’ alliances like the ‘fatal 5’ and whatever the fake guys alliance was.
    • This is where I give Michelle tons of credit for creating a fake guys alliance mid conversation to throw off the ‘fatal 5’ leak. That earns her a Big Brother Beanie Point (new thing I just made up haha)
    • Nicole – “There have been so many big personalities that have been evicted”. Yea, no kidding. The live feed watchers are suffering as a result of that. Just wait until Day and Frank are gone and we’re stuck listening to Paulie suck his own …., awkward showmances, and Paul. Kill me already.
    • Corey – “Man I hope it’s a team comp this week. You know, not individual”… thanks for clearing that up, Corey
  • Frank joins
    • Frank has been talking about how he needs laundry detergant. The conversation carries on to something else with Paulie talking about the HoH laundry service. Announcer calls out Paulie for talking about production. Frank yells out “Hey, why don’t you give us some laundry detergant, and I know you’re listening you eavesdropping son of a bitch!” (11:33pm) They all crack up and Frank says he’s just joking.  Pretty hilarious the way he says it
  • 11:45pm – That group broke up, Frank is gone, Zaki and Michelle are in.
    • Zaki is trying to hide from the camera that keeps following her around
    • zak-paulie
    • Ugh, Michelle is back to the Jun story how she ‘caught Bridgette in a lie’. Good job, Sherlock.  I don’t actually believe you did catch her, but if you did, well done?
  • 12:00am – Hour 13 of blogging today.  Although I did take an hour off here and there, so I guess it’s not a straight marathon.
    • Paulie just keeps talking and talking and talking.  He was telling us all about his losing strategy for the roadkill comp. To be fair, he did get a high score, but he really loves himself.
    • Time to change the channel, this is too boring…
    • natalie-james2
    • Nope, changing back….
  • 12:30pm – Ok, mini marathon is over. Heading to bed! It’s just Paulie and Michelle talking and I want no part in that right now

    I swear, and God forgive me for saying this if I’m wrong, but I’m beginning to think Corey is using Nicole as a “beard”. There, I said it. If I’m wrong, I’ll say 3 Hail Mary, 2 Acts of Contrition and an Apostle’s Creed. If I’m right, I’ll say The Lord’s Prayer for Nicole.

    • ChiKelz

      I don’t know, but I wouldn’t be surprised. I am so sick of Nicole and that baby whining act! I’m sick of it. UGH!

        Im right there with you on that. I cant believe I have to go through another BB summer listening to that fake haired whiny witch. Her voice is like nails raking on a chalkboard.

    • Mello_One

      Agreed….I’m with you on that one! But Corey has said repeatedly that he only likes Nicole as a Friend.

      I suspected that about Corey since week 2 or so. Remember he used to “joke” about how some of the other boys were so handsome and about their bodies? Honestly, I don’t care to shame people on that basis ever. But I’ve wondered that too.

      Corey looks like he barely has two dusty marbles colliding and echoing up there in his empty brain. Other than Nicole, he would not be missed.

    • Avatar

      Well Nkogneetow, I think it’s safe to say you can go ahead & start saying the Lord’s Prayer because Corey has said he & poor clueless Nicole are just friends & he is not interested in her in a romantic way.
      Paulie has said the same thing about Z & she’s said it about him although we know what it really means when Z said that. She is totally into Paulie.
      You were right about it all.

      I seriously doubt it….but i DON’T want to see it to be proven wrong…lol. Sorry, I just can’t get that first day remark he made, out of my head. I think Nicole is working hard for “nothing”.

        Are you referring to episode 1 and the comment about another guy, I believe it was victor.

      • nkogneetow
        nkogneetow (6399 comments)

        Yep, he said in his voice over that he wouldn’t mind having a showmance with either Victor or Paulie, I just can’t remember which.

        You could not have said it any better. Nicole is working hard for nothing.

        Honestly Nkogneetow, when the show first started I thought Corey was gay. No offense meant at all to gay people or Corey. That was & still is how I see him.

    I wonder if Corey is dealing with sexual orientation issue? I remember in episode, he briefly mention something about how another guy looked. I thought that was weird but I did not think about it again since Nicole and Corey became close. But not I’m curious if he is even attracted to women. No offense to anyone.

    • nkogneetow
      nkogneetow (6399 comments)

      It’s possible that he’s attracted to both. Who knows. I’m not judging, to each his own. But he knows how Nic feels about him and instead of just coming right out and telling her he’s not interested, he seems like he gets a little to uncomfortable if she tries to get to close. Now it might just be her. Maybe she’s not his type. There’s just something about the way he acts towards her that seems a little strange.

      He is either not into women, or not really into Nicole. Straight, gay, whatever, I’m gonna guess he liked her when things started, still likes her, but doesn’t “like” like her, to put it in middle school terms. He reminds me of a guy I dated — things were good for a short time and then he started pulling away from me, avoiding being alone with me, being a jerk so I would break up with him. I hate when guys pull that shit. Some girls probably do the same thing. Being in the BB house, you can’t just break things off and move on with your life because you’re stuck with each other until one of you gets voted out.

    Steve: “I cant believe I’m staying up late to blog this weirdness??”

    You might as well get some sleep Steve. Tonight is as generic as it can get. I keep hoping something exciting will happen or at least some game talk. I’ve been pinching myself for the last 2 hours, trying to stay awake. Everyone is just TO friendly tonight….the calm before the storm??

    Gidget just told V2 that she just hopes for the best for these people and hopes they grow up a little. WTH? This coming from the giggly Cabbage Patch Kid.

    And Nic told Corey she can’t understand why he asked a guy to spend the night in the HOH room….and here we go……..

    • Avatar
      Cyn (782 comments)

      Wait, he did what?! Who did he ask? If I were Nicole, I’d just fall back. As women, we can sense when a man is not just interested. Or maybe, he should just tell her honestly how he feels. Their relationship is very awkward.

      • nkogneetow
        nkogneetow (6399 comments)

        I don’t know what guy she was talking about. I’ve been racking my brain trying to remember if I heard him say that to or about anyone but I come up with nothing, but he must have said it because he didn’t deny it.

        And Godfather Paulie is tickling me too. Did you see the other night when he won his HOH, he and James were in the Storage room talking. While he was talking to James, he was standing there with his legs slightly spread, hands on hips, chest out, head slightly tilted in a super hero stance. I was like WTH??? He is REALLY feeling his little oats, God Bless him.

        Girl, BINGO!

        in reference to Paulie. As my mother would say; he’s smelling himself! LOL

      Here we go. Maybe she’ll figure it out & set her sights on that $500,000 prize & not that shifty eyed man.

    Can’t Nicole see that Corey is gay. Come on its obvious and coming out in the house would not be cool

    • nkogneetow
      nkogneetow (6399 comments)

      I’m really not sure if he’s gay or not. I just suspect, but I could be wrong. But why would coming out in the house not be cool? The BB house has seen it’s share of gay house guest. It’s not a crime. If he is, it’s okay. I just like people to be up front about who and what they are.

      • Mello_One

        At the beginning of the Season Corey told the someone in the House that his Parents had told him they suspected that he was Gay. Then one of the HG asked him if he liked Nicole, (I think it was Zakiyah) and Corey said “I like her as a friend, I just got out of a 9 year relationship with somebody, and I’m not ready to get back into to one again.” Strange…

        I don’t think coming out in the house is good thing because you should tell your parenta family and friends first. I also don’t think Corey is really comfy with it yet. But he says things that point that way. Nicole should have picked up on it by now. I also Jozea would have called him out

    Just got to say I love the way you write. I’m sitting here out on my deck in Seattle giggling and probably keeping my neighbors awake. You are so funny! I’m really glad I found your blog! 🙂

    Now back to your regular comments. 😉

    Boy did V2 do a job on Nicole…and a GOOD job at that! She got so deep in that fools head that Nic is spouting off lies and starting to sound just like her. V2 may not intimidate people like her sister but she sure knows how to get things started and make them think it was their idea. Nic has gotten so good that she repeats conversations that Da never had with her, Tiff did…lol. And Deer-In-The-Headlights-Corey is co-signing everything she says (he who doesn’t even know what the comps are, how double eviction works, what happens in Jury). And NOW he decides he wants to play. He’s trying to act like he knows what he’s talking about (so funny)…..Funny little Clueless Corey.

    Godfather Paulie also tickles me. Did anyone notice the other night when he won his HOH, he was in the Storage room talking to James. While he was talking to James, he stood there with his legs slightly spread, his hands on his hips, his chest out and his head tilted slightly upward….reminded me of a super hero stance….I was literally crying, I was laughing so hard. He really does rea

    • Mello_One

      True! Everybody gives Nicole a Pass on her Lies though?! I am just wondering when some Brave soul is gonna wake up, and realize, “Why Is Nicole pushing so freaking hard on Day, and blaming her for everything going on in the House?!” I am hoping that Zakiyah would wake up and tell Day that Nicole has been throwing Day under the Bus under the Bus hard for weeks.

    Hi everyone!!

    I think it should be Day first then Michelle next in the eviction order!! After that, it would be all just be game..

    I’m so glad everyone is finally discussing Corey’s comments from day 1! Remember, too, how I think it was Frank that said something about catching Corey sitting in the bathroom staring at Paulie taking a shower?? That happened several times!

    No matter what Corey’s love strategy is, Nic is just stupid to attach to any of the men this season. She had this big discussion at the beginning of the season, regarding her last showmance (which did turn into a dating relationship with Hayden) and how she has learned her lesson. Huh??!! So anything that Nic is pretending to feel, feels, thinks Corey feels, knows he is pretending to feel…is all on her! For now, Nic seems to be part of a fairly stable 4-pack (P, Zzzz, C, N)…correction, a 6-pack cause Paulie’s ego counts an additional two.

  12. danmtruth

    Call me crazy Call me sick But in this batel back I would like to see Bronte win Just think of it The annoying bobbelhead girls can reunite. Lets see if the all girl ” alliance ” can actually work It will give Frank another vote as he will spin it was not his plan to evict Bronte in the first place Lets see if she figured how to play the game The sound guy will hate me as the high pitch squeaking will be nonstop But her voice is no more irritating than Nicholes whinny drone voice

      Danmtruth,,, now you know your my ace coon partner, my bubby ol pal ol friend, my road dog & we agree100% on everything. Well, today just dropped to 99.9% because if Bronchitis came back in the house I might have a coronary. I can’t stand that arrogant, bigoted, prejudiced, squeaky voiced little troll who claims to want to be a mathematician but don’t evev know what 9×9 is. Im sorry my friend but BB needs to let Bronte go home & back to school so she can at least learn basic 2nd grade math before wanting to solve world problems with math. She made herself look really stupid.
      No disrespect to you my friend….

    It would be cool to have a different energy back. Curious how Glenn would fit in at this point. Its been weeks. I don’t miss any of the folks who have left and we never got to really know Glenn.

    • Elaine
      Elaine (1768 comments)

      There is no one that has been evicted that I want to come back in the house. Glenn never really got in the game and I think it would be hard for him to find a niche at this point. I hope whoever comes back in goes right back out. For the voted-out evictees, there was a reason that happened. I didn’t get my previous question answered, so I will ask again. Whose jury re-entry into the house was most successful (in terms of how long they stayed the second time)? Thx.

    Does anyone know anything about #fingergate with Nicole and Corey? They talked about it a little last night.

  16. Avatar

    I just watched a 2 hour summary of Derricks game. (Omg is miss him!) From the clips of Nicole I seen and from what I remember about her, she is playing this game WAY weaker than her first go round. I mean seriously, it’s like she forgot what she is doing. Does she not remember anything, did she not learn anything from last time or take any notes? Come on Nicole, act like you’ve got a little bit of sense. I wouldn’t mind if she left at this point. I know I’m not in the popular crowd, but I’m pulling for tiff to stay or come back!
