Let's get this party started!
The excitement should start after the recap. Oh, good ... they're going to show Paulie entering the jury house. (Now he just needs to stay there!) Julie tells us that the jurors will compete in an epic battle of endurance and the winner will return to the house.
James's vote will determine which side of the house he and Natalie are really on. Paul is more paranoid than is Victor. Victor thinks he and Paul need to figure out a way to keep him in the house over Corey. Paul tells Victor to "betray" him in talks with Nicole and Corey. Paul wants to act like Nicole and Corey are his new best friends and wants James to see that. While Paul does his best buddies act, Victor tries to convince James, Michelle and Natalie that he's over Paul and will work with them. He claims if he wins HoH, he'd put Paul on the block.
Paulie goes to jury! They scream with delight to see he got evicted, not that they want to live with him. He calls them catty and petty. They are ganging up on him. It sucks to be him, right? BWAHAHAHA! Zakiyah stands up to him, they all walk out on him. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
To the living room --
Victor - Love parents, great summer, I'm loyal, hope you vote to keep me.
Corey - Loyal, honest game, etc.
The votes to evict:
Nicole - Victor
Paul - Corey
James - Victor
Victor is evictored once again. Everybody left him nice goodbye messages, telling him Paul was the target this week, not him.
Now he gets the chance to compete with the other jury members to return to the house ... after commercial messages!
The jury gets word that they will battle against each other, last standing will reenter the house. Zakiyah is avoiding Paulie.
Julie gathers the hamsters in the living room. Tells them they will ALL be competing in an epic battle with the five jurors alongside them. If the winning juror is the last one, they could be HoH.
BTW - I'll be creating a separate post to cover the HoH Endurance Comp on the live feeds after this live show ends.
Welcome to Loch Ness -- they're on a wall platforms. The yard is done up with a moat and a huge fake Loch Ness monster. Typical wall action, leaning. There's some kind of mist. Supposedly the monster is upset and shooting them with water and wiggling them.
