We’re starting now to see what the strategy is for Victor as a returning houseguest in the “Big Brother 18” game: Get as far as he possibly can, and then win competitions the rest of the way.
We don’t hate Victor in that he doesn’t seem like a jerk to the other players like we’ve seen from some others so far this season, but he’s also not particularly good at this game. Credit goes to Paulie and Paul for picking him up after he returned to the game, but he’s on borrowed time. What Da’Vonne told him about being a double-eviction target is 100% true.
For now, though, Victor has an alliance entitled “The Board” in which he is the CEO, and Paul is apparently the CFO a.k.a. the Chief Friendship Officer (ugh). Paulie’s there too, letting Victor feel like he is the leader of something for the time being. He seems fine with going along with the plan to nominate Zakiyah and Michelle, and he’ll figure things out from there if he needs a replacement nominee. He seems okay with breaking a deal with Natalie if he has to, which should be fine given that Natalie’s showmance James has already shown that he has no problem breaking deals.
Unfortunately, this looks like it’s going to be a duller-than-dirt week unless something crazy happens in the house or someone gets to Victor with some sort of huge emotional pick. The problem is that Michelle and Zakiyah have not done a good job building connections outside of their small circle this season, and we’re not sure that they have the history with someone like Victor to go up to him and make a compelling pitch that he can trust.
