As always, I start with the “down low” on recent events:
- James and Victor are the only Have Nots for the week. Michelle would have been one, but won the care package to make her co-HOH. They get to eat pies with their slop for the week.
- Everyone but Nicole played in the POV competition, which Paul won.
- Friday’s ratings: 5.37 million viewers.
Other than the POV, it was a rather quiet day. Paul will likely spare himself at the veto meeting on Monday. Michelle, who is the co-HOH who nominated the California apparel maker, has three options as a replacement. She can replace Paul with either Nicole, Corey, or James.
It still appears the fix is in here, and that Victor will be the one out. But with Paul now one of the three voters, and with Corey or Nicole likely the other nominee, whoever doesn’t go up between those two will vote to evict Victor. That leaves James as a likely deciding vote.
It’s been noted on social media that every time James returns from the Diary Room, he comes back with a more vigorous defense as to why Victor needs to go, and that a “good person” should win the season. I wonder what Victor has done that does not make him a so-called good person: perhaps evicting Paulie against the wishes of production, who reportedly called him “stupid” for doing so?
More in a couple of days. I didn’t watch the feeds at all yesterday, still reeling for Natalie’s revelation that “Mom and Dad” wanted her to work with Corey and Nicole.
