At first, everything was going as planned for the puppet and the puppeteer, Bridgette and Frank. On short notice, Da’Vonne decides to flip the house to keep Tiffany and send Bronte home. “She’s gunning for Frank,” she told James, and seeing as how she despises Frank with most of the house, Da’Vonne saw the benefits of keeping a feud alive rather than squashing it early. James agreed and added that they should keep the votes as close as possible (instead of the usual, large majority) to keep the mystery of who went back on the original plan to evict Tiffany. Five is the magical number of votes someone needs to receive in order to be kicked out of the Big Brother house! Da’Vonne and James are on board, so they venture out to convince the rest of their alliance.
At first, people were easily flipped. Michelle needed no persuasion whatsoever, as her conscious was weighing heavily on her about evicting a fellow alliance member from the get-go. Nicole was convinced, as was Zakiyah, but it wasn’t until Zakiyah talked to Paulie that the plan started to shake.
“Bronte’s not winning anything anytime soon,” Paulie told Zakiyah, “Tiffany can win stuff.” (FYI, Tiffany hasn’t won anything…yet.) Paulie is holding true to the original reason why they wanted Tiffany gone; she’s very emotional, very paranoid, and very unpredictable—which are all traits she shares with her BB17 houseguest sister Vanessa, who turned out to be a beast in her season and was responsible for almost every single eviction. “She’s strong. She’s a strategist.” And, like that, Zakiyah seemed re-flipped to the original plan.
When the whole 8 Pack alliance (minus Tiffany and Frank, and plus Paulie) got together as a group, Paulie swayed Nicole from being gung-ho to on the fence.
Here’s when it gets a little dirty! And Nicole landed herself a lot of hate on social media because of it!
Frank and Nicole start talking about who should be their target next week. Nicole plays coy with her who her own target would be, but openly says that she knows that Frank would target Da’Vonne. They both agree that Da’Vonne needs to go, and Frank tells her that she should be a Roadkill nomination, so that it would be anonymous.
Later, Frank proposes the idea to Bridgette that he, her, Nicole, and Corey should work together secretly from that point on. Despite her hesitations with Corey, Bridgette agrees, and Frank takes the idea to Nicole, who also agrees and pleas with Frank not to tell anyone their plan to evict Da’Vonne, specifically Michelle. Michelle had a guilty conscious about the idea of voting out Tiffany, who she’s not a friend to. Da’Vonne and Michelle are friends, however, and Nicole knew she would never agree to that plan. Frank agreed not to talk to Michelle.
However, Frank went to Michelle and did just that. Not only did Frank tell her the plans, but he also told her that Nicole didn’t want Michelle to know about the new plan. Michelle pretended to agree with targeting Da’Vonne, but she immediately went to Da’Vonne with all the new information. Nicole joins in on Michelle and Da’Vonne’s conversation, but denies ever agreeing on the plan or telling Frank not to tell Nicole. Da’Vonne, who has proven herself to be very intuitive, picked up on Nicole’s fidgetiness and doesn’t believe Nicole, but stays quiet about it.
“Any impulse at all that I had to work with Frank is completely gone,” Nicole says in her diary room interview session. “I have no desire to work with him moving forward.”
Nicole and Michelle go to Paulie, and end up changing his mind to the new plan. And, like that, the house gets on board to keep Tiffany and blindside Frank and Bridgette.
On the live eviction, the nominees had to each have a last speech as their last piece of campaigning to stay in the game. Paul did his usual speech of friendship and whatever, but what got heated was Tiffany’s speech, which is included below:
“Houseguests, as we’ve seen in the last few weeks, dictatorships rarely work out for the dictators in this house. And this week is no different. In fact, let’s talk about the dictator this week. He was trying so hard to get me out. He was up late nights, early mornings—got to give him an A+ effort, actually. But there was one small flaw in his ‘master plan’ to get me out, and that was the cow manure that spewed off his tongue that smelled worse than his daily gas, honestly. And so, I’m sorry, if you want to keep me, I’m not targeting any single one of you but said dictator and his little Cabbage Patch Kid.”
Frank and Bridgette were truly taken aback, and blindsided when Bronte received five votes and Tiffany only received four, evicting Frank’s Roadkill nomination and one of Bridgette’s best friends.
Things will definitely get uncomfortable for everyone next week, because in the new HoH competition, Paulie won, immunizing his whole team from getting nomina
ted. In case you’ve forgotten, both Frank and Bridgette are on Paulie’s team. #aawwkward
