Good things come to those who stay up late. It’s a little bit of a classic theme in “Big Brother,” since you never want to be in the dark about conversations that are happening. We saw a good example of that overnight, as Nicole spoke with James and then Paulie chatted with Zakiyah on some various matters. Specifically, Frank was at the center of most of them.
These conversations were in many ways indicative of why the women are running the show this season for the most part: They’re just that much better at manipulating than the men. Someone like Frank is a little bit of a tornado; he creates drama, but often does not know precisely how to control it; meanwhile, people like Nicole and Zakiyah (probably the best player among the newbies) can use the things that he says against him.
In the end, the point of these talks were mostly grooming both James and Paulie so that they would be okay with getting rid of Frank sooner rather than later; Paulie seems to be acting okay with it despite not being included in the original 8 Pack alliance; James is a little more hesitant, but at the same time, he knows the game enough to know not to go against the numbers. If it is looking as though Frank is going home, he would jump aboard that.
Really, the question now is when to strike, and if we were people like Nicole, Da’Vonne, Tiffany, or Zakiyah, we’re not sure we would wait long for him to figure things out and go on a competition run. Also, some of them are becoming transfixed on Frank, and that’s dangerous for their game since it leaves them vulnerable for some other drama elsewhere.
