Over the course of the past 24 hours on the “Big Brother” live feeds, we have really seen Natalie and Michelle lead the way (with the help of Bridgette) for a plan that would cause Zakiyah to be evicted on Thursday night with the help of people like Paul and James.
While for now that plan does still appear to be in place, it is pretty clear to us now judging from the latest events on the feeds that Natalie really wants to ensure all of her bases are covered. This evening, she sat down with Zakiyah and aired out basically a solid fifty pounds of dirty laundry, beginning with some of Paulie’s comments about her. We don’t think Natalie really lied about much here, and it has caused Z to see her showmance partner in a very different light. She feels played, and what this does do is further ensure that she will target Paulie in some capacity if she stays, even if she doesn’t have the votes of everyone.
What Natalie has done here that is effective is that she’s developed a reputation overtime as someone people can trust, so when she says this stuff now, it comes across as genuine. You can’t exactly say the same thing about other people like a Nicole or Paul, who have spread all sorts of stuff around the house.
Given that Natalie told Z that Nicole had run spread around her past comments about “wanting a girl to win,” she’s planted a seed there, as well.
The danger that Natalie is running into now is that if someone like Nicole wins the next Head of Household, she could easily nominate her and receive all sorts of info as further ammunition. She’s given herself a much better shot to win, but also reduced her chances of getting there. It’ll be interesting to see how all of this unfolds.
Update: Well, we now know that Zakiyah went and spilled the beans on Natalie. Not great.
