Corey continues to warp our brain in the “Big Brother” game, mostly because he’s trying to counteract all the things about him we don’t like (the boring personality, the showmance factor, the goat story) with one thing that we do — he does routinely acknowledge that there are people watching him and offers up some insight into what he’s thinking. Technically, the Diary Room is supposed to be a window into the soul of a given houseguest, but it’s been a long time since we’ve had that since they’re mostly now just a vessel for people to shout at us.
This morning, we learned via Corey that one of his ideal endgames for the season would be to make it to the end with Nicole and Paulie, just so that the two of them could choose him to go to the finals. Basically, Corey is more than fine to get second place and isn’t willing to make many moves. We don’t know how he thinks that he is in the driver’s seat on anything.
Corey also wants to see Zakiyah leave the game soon, citing her attitude as a reason why and hoping that someone likes Bridgette wins the next Head of Household so that she can do some of the dirty work instead. (Personally, we want Bridgette to win and then put up Paulie and Corey, just because it’d be hilarious and this game needs some element of unpredictability in it.) He admits that he hasn’t been actively trying to win too many competitions so far, which is one of the smarter things he’s said since there has been no motivation for him to do.
In the end, it’s nice to hear that Corey is at least thinking about the game, even if it is nothing unexpected and he’s not playing much of a winning game. Da’Vonne for now is still going home Thursday, but we’ll see over the coming days if that turns out to still be the case.
