This could be our final “Big Brother” update of penultimate day in the game, and there may be only one more in general we do beyond this one. That thought saddens us greatly, since it’s been a crazy season at times. We’re not going to say it’s been the best season, but we’ve probably enjoyed the second half of it more than either season 15 or 16. (Yes, Nicole, we don’t care what you say about 16 — this one’s better. At least it’s not a straight shot for any one player.)
We’re going to be talking a good bit about Nicole in this one, mostly because she’s probably the person winning tomorrow night, even if we don’t want it to happen. If Paul takes her, it’s a close vote, and she should easily beat James. It just feels like unless Paul wakes up, he’s probably taking her to the end and putting himself in danger.
Tonight, Nicole practiced not only her final 2 speech (again, even thought she claimed to James and Paul that she was winging it), but also her speech to evict Paul from the game. She also explained more of her moves, including how allowing people to think she’d get no votes at the end was strategy to ensure that she’d be taken there if need be.
The one concern we continue to have with Nicole is this: She’s practicing so much that she may not come across as organic, and we do like to think that at the end of the game, people do want something and someone they can feel good about. Wouldn’t some of them prefer giving money to someone who got to know them?
