Let's get this party started!
Julie tells us how powerful Nicole is. It's truly sad that she isn't really thinking about her end game! Recap.
More talk about Nicole's power in the game. Corey talks of his bribe. He wants to make sure Michelle goes home (like that wouldn't happen anyway). Victor trusts her because she didn't use the veto and put him on the block.
Paul leads on Natalie and Michelle that neither he nor Victor have a clue who will go this week.
Back to the bribe. James suggests using the bribe to get someone to drop out of the HoH comp. Of course, James also thinks he's safe with Nicole and Corey. Nicole is super paranoid. Naturally, this whole segment leads into Corey deciding to offer Victor the bribe to vote out Michelle (which he was going to do anyway).
James is very disappointing this season. He's so sure of his own final four deal with Natalie/Corey and Nicole that he's ignoring the obvious moving in of Victor and Paul up there.
To the living room. Julie addresses their concerns about a double eviction. She tells them there won't be one tonight, nor any for the rest of the season. They get to see video clips from home.
A segment on Victor returning and some background.
Onto the eviction:
Paul -- Friendship, kisses Michelle.
Michelle -- Awesome summer. Will cry if you evict me. Will go after Victor if he stays. Paul and Victor will win if you evict me.
The votes to evict:
Victor -- Michelle
Natalie -- Paul
Corey -- Michelle
James -- Paul
It's a tie. To Nicole for the tiebreaker. She votes out Michelle. She had a bad leaving blowing up Victor and Nicole's games (supposedly) and she stole Pablo, Paul's floatie pelican. She cries while watching the goodbye messages.
The HoH comp starts. The backyard is a farm theme. It's called Poached Eggs. It's the maneuvering eggs with through chicken wire. They have to knock over three targets HOH. If they want not to be a Have Not, they need to get an egg in a basket. The first three to do so won't be Have Nots.
I'll be setting up a separate post to cover the comp (if shown) on the live feeds and/or the results.
