Let’s face it: This is going to be a long, relatively-quiet week in the “Big Brother” house, given that there is a clear side in power and two nominees who don’t have much of a hope to be out of the woods anytime soon.
Earlier this afternoon, Paulie relayed his conversation last week to Paul, and made it clear that he was not using the Power of Veto on Zakiyah. While Paulie still prefers her to be safe for another week, Paul seems more interested in getting Zakiyah out. Is that smart? We’re not so sure. To us, it makes a lot more sense to get out someone in Michelle who is much more dangerous in the long-term, and doesn’t have the same allegiance to Paulie that Z does.
One of the things that Paulie wants out of Michelle is some further information about the Fatal Five, given that he thinks there was more there than any of the women let on. This is true, but at the same exact time is Big Meech really going to rat on them to the guy she thinks is running the game? (She’s right.)
Paul pushed some of his preferences to Nicole later this afternoon, and she made it clear that she is fine with whatever the guys decide for now. While we do think Paulie is the one in power, there is something still rather valuable about the position Mr. Friendship is in. If Paulie takes out his own showmance and continues to be as cold as he is, he’s going to lose a lot of jury votes since nobody wants to vote for who they think is a bad person. Paul doesn’t come across that same way, and he has almost a Littlefinger sort of vibe about him where he operates underneath the shadows. He also has Victor relatively loyal to him.
While Paul may not be a great player, he’s a good-but-flawed one and that may be enough for him to win this crazy season.
