Let's get this party started!
Before the recap, Julie said a showmance, bromance and romance were on the line. She thinks James and Natalie is a romance?
There will be a jury segment and a Jeff/Jordan bit tonight.
Is the honeymoon over for Natalie and James? Well, yeah ... but. Nicole wants to work with James. Natalie is angry about James's game moves with Nicole and Corey. Lots of discussion on who to keep, lots of distrust of Paul/Victor coming from Nicole. Paul and Victor are also trying to get on James's good side.
The Natalie/James bicker segment aired. Now all four of the others in the house are sympathizing with James.
Jeff and Jordan time. They were getting married on the 24th but got pregnant in Mexico during the winter, married in March. It's going to be a boy. Jordan thinks Victor will win the season; Jeff thinks Paul.
Jury segment as Michelle arrives. Da'Vonne is really ticked that James threw the comp to Nicole. Bridgette is shocked Michelle didn't get the hint she was the target.
To the living room - talk to the nominees.
Natalie - Thanks her family, honored to play, James is my new best friend and soulmate.
James - Family, honor to play with Natalie, my game and faith is in y'alls hands.
The votes to evict:
Paul -- Natalie
Nicole -- Natalie
Corey -- Natalie
Unanimous (as expected) ... Natalie is evicted. Despite live feeds threats earlier, she's all smiles and goodness going out the door.
HoH Comp (start) time. Victor can't compete as outgoing HoH.
It's a movie-themed slip and slide, they need to get 8 gallons in the container -- first to do so. Small container can be filled to retrieve a larger scoop. Corey is off to the best start followed by Paul. Both of them are going directly for the larger container. Nicole and James aren't doing as well, both going to try for the larger scoop.
Schedule change - Tuesday and Wednesday, football on Thursday.
In a few minutes, a new post will pop up here to watch the HoH comp on the live feeds. Join us over there!
