In the last episode, Bridgette became Head of Household and is holding all of the power, but the houseguests know Bridgette is Frank’s little puppet. She initially was considering nominating either Nicole and Corey or Tiffany and Corey for eviction, but Frank talked her out of targeting Nicole and Corey and directed her focus on getting Tiffany out, who he has had a few tiffs (pun intended) with for a few weeks now.
Why was Bridgette targeting Nicole and Corey out of the blue? It is no secret to the rest of the house that things are heating up between “Nicorey.” Both of them are trying to play it cool, fearing to be targeted. Meanwhile, another showmance is blossoming between Natalie and James.
Even though Frank is a part of the eight person alliance, the 8 Pack, he is causing major problems with his alliance members. He makes several comments on the female houseguests’ bodies, including calling Natalie fat and Zakiyah a hussy, but no one has a bigger problem with Frank than Da’Vonne. After several altercations, including name calling and slapping Da’Vonne’s butt, Da’Vonne bursts into tears, and the better part of the house rallies to her aid and support the plan of getting Frank evicted as soon as possible. However, seeing as he and Bridgette and practically sharing HoH, “as soon as possible” isn’t quite soon enough.
At the nomination ceremony, Bridgette did exactly what Frank wanted her to do and nominated Paul and Tiffany, to no one’s surprise.
The whole house competes in the roadkill competition, and Frank emerges victorious, giving him the power to choose the third nominee for eviction. Frank anonymously nominates Bronte, even though she and Bridgette are good friends. Despite Tiffany being Frank’s number one target, she is suddenly feeling safe, thinking the houseguests will pick her over Bronte, who was aligned with the previous two evicted houseguests.
