Let's get this show AWN!
Before going into recap, Julie told us Frank and Da'Vonne were two "powerful players, each with their own agenda."
The action resumes after the PoV meeting and Frank gloating about it. Paul feels secure. Bronte thinks that Tiffany is the target because the "whole house" wants to vote her out. Da'Vonne thinks Tiffany staying might be the best option. She tells James. He thinks, if they had enough votes, it might work. He's not happy with Frank's behavior. They need five votes. Michelle thinks it would be better send Bronte packing. Nicole is agreeable to it. Zakiyah says okay.
Uh-oh. Zakiyah suggests Bronte out to Paulie. He thinks it's not a good idea. He thinks Tiffany can win things. (What has she won so far?) Corey feels along the same lines as Paulie.
Going into commercial, Julie tells us the returners have started to turn on each other. Well, duh.
Frank tries to drag Nicole in to say who she wants targeted. She thinks he wants Da'Vonne out. Frank tells Nicole he has her back.
Frank tells Bridgette they'll go after Nicole and Corey down the road, but maybe an alliance with them ...? Frank tries to get Michelle on the anti-Da'Vonne Train. He tells Michelle that Nicole is also in on getting Da'Vone out. Michelle tells Da'Vonne and Nicole denies it. Da'Vonne sees through Nicole.
Back in the Bronte Out Plan, they look like they're getting Corey and Paulie.
Time to vote! The nominees speak ...
Paul - Have not, block three weeks, time of my life, want to stay.
Tiffany - Dictatorships rarely work out, talks about dictator (Frank), cow manure, gas ... would target dictator and Cabbage Patch Kid
Bronte - Not in the habit of being mean, thank you all.
Votes to Evict:
Frank - Tiffany
Natalie - Tiffany
James - Tiffany
Into commercial ...
Michelle - Bronte
Nicole - Bronte
Zakiyah - Bronte
Corey - Bronte
Paulie - Tiffany
Da'Vonne - Bronte
Five to four, Bronte is evicted. Frank and Bridgette both visibly cringe when Julie announces it.
I think Bronte got the first laugh out of me from her all season. When Julie told her about the Battle Back, Bronte said, "I'm glad I wasn't snooty on the way out!"
HoH Comp time. Yesterday they saw, sixteen photos of the evicted hamsters in "Europe." They had to study them.
Euro Tripping is the name of the comp. True or False questions. Last HG standing, new HoH with team safe.
Corey, James, Natalie, Zakiyah, Paul out on first question.
All right on second.
Tiffany, Michelle, Da'Vonne out.
Paulie wins HOH!
So much for getting Frank out. Frank, Paulie, Bridgette and Michelle are all safe.
