The “Big Brother” live feeds last night were surprisingly a hot mess, mostly when it comes to one key subject of conversation: Trying to figure out precisely who to put on the block.
Ultimately, it came down to a situation where three separate people more or less volunteered to go up as a pawn against Bridgette: Corey, Nicole (who had to be really pushed to do it), and then also Paulie. In the end, it looks like the latter right now is the plan, mostly because of the sentiment that he would be a huge threat to win the Veto over her.
Is this a good plan for Paul as Head of Household? No. It’s a terrible plan. Paul is basically doing what Zach did on “Big Brother Canada” season 3 with Jordan. You’re nominating your closest ally, thinking that the rest of the house will rally to do exactly what it is you want and you just needed a pawn in order for it to happen. For Paul, putting Paulie up is a huge risk since he is an enormous threat, whereas someone like Bridgette isn’t. We could easily see people like Da’Vonne, James, Natalie, and Michelle realizing that this is an opportunity they may not get again anytime soon. If they can get someone like Victor on their side, the votes of Corey, Nicole, and Zakiyah no longer matter.
If we were Paul, we’d be much more likely to go with Nicole since he’s not extremely close to her, and if she does go home over Bridgette, it’s not all that harmful to his game since she is not completely on his side.
