BB18: Power of Veto Show Blog Party - September 7
Hamster watchers ready? Let's get this show going!
As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be constantly updating this entry. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party is in the comments area -- please join in on the fun there as we watch the show together!
But first ... a recap.
We pick things up after the nominations ceremony. Victor vows to do the same with James as he did with Paulie. Natalie knows she's the pawn, but doesn't want James to go.
Nicole cries in the Diary Room because she feels guilty that James is on the block after James saved Corey last week.
Paul overhears Natalie being all cheery about being on the block and he sees no friendship there. He wishes she hadn't been told that she's the pawn. Natalie thinks that Nicole set them up. She seems to be blaming James for their previous decisions (like she had no say in the matter).
Natalie decides, since she "betrayed" Paul and Victor, she needs to talk to them. She apologizes and throws James under the bus! She told them they had her back and she shouldn't have trusted James.
Paul, especially, sees right through her and neither he nor Victor like that she threw her "ride or die" under the bus. Paul and Victor go right to Nicole and Corey about the talk. Natalie lies to James or at least omits the part that she threw him under the bus.
Veto comp time -- all play because they're down to six. It's a McGyver related comp tied in to promote the new CBS show. They have to each escape "the compound" using MacGyver ways. The one in the shortest time wins. The winner also wins a trip to the MacGyver set in Atlanta. (Ah, that's why someone won a trip to Atlanta!)
Natalie: 9 minutes, 6 second. Since she has completed her mission, she is allowed to watch Nicole (next one) on a monitor. Nicole isn't doing as well. Heh. The clock went over Natalie's time and the compound "blew up." Nicole is out. Victor is up next. He almost got it!
James is up. He does horribly in the comp. Corey is up. He takes over the veto from Natalie with a time of six minutes, fourteen seconds.
Paul's turn. He does poorly. Corey won the veto.
Oh, geez. James tells Natalie that he's going to tell the others to vote him out. He said that had he won veto he would have taken her off the block.
The others talk about which one needs to go. Victor wants James to go because he's the one who got him evicted. But Natalie is stronger at comps, smarter (?) and more. Which one?
James goes to Corey to ask they vote him out. Yikes. Corey is noncommittal.
Natalie asks James if the threw the comp, then asks if he has a final two or three deal with Nicole. Showing a lot of distrust there, girl. She tells him she will never talk to him if he works with them. She says she's going to go home because she trusted him. James is really hurt. He would never do that to a friend.
Paul and Victor want to talk to James about Natalie throwing him under the bus. Maybe James will realize she's no "ride and die" for him!
Veto meeting -- each talk for a moment, James won't campaign against Natalie. Takes blame for himself being on the block. Corey does not use the PoV.
