Is Paul playing a great game on “Big Brother,” or is he on the verge of careening off of the edge of a cliff? This is something we’re still trying to figure out.
What Paul does well is that he’s an excellent lackey for people, and excels at running off and doing either what he plans to do with their blessing or what he was told. Last night, that mission was working to plant some seeds in Bridgette’s head that Frank has been working against her this whole time … or at least that he has been pitching that she wants to go home rather than continue to stay in this crazy competition.
To a certain extent, we can at least say, much to Bridgette’s chagrin, that this worked. Paul talked to Bridgette last night, and following that time she felt really bad and like Frank had been playing her for weeks. He did his best to smooth things over, by the objective here feels fairly clear: For Paul and some of the other guys to pull her in after Frank leaves and use her as a number.
One very interesting phenomenon this season is that in the end, the women appeared to be playing infinitely better than the men. However, since the crumbling of the Fatal Five it has felt more like the guys have taken the reign of more dominant crew. Paulie in particular is playing the best game as of right now; while he may have a huge ego, he does have people protecting him on many sides, including Zakiyah with the women. While some people like Da’Vonne are aware of him, he’s not the #1 target of her for the time being.
It’s been fairly quiet so far today, but we will (of course) let you know if that changes.
