Friday Morning ~ Last Minute Scramble before Nominations
8:30am Wakey Wakey HGs! BB woke the HGs at 8:30 and they've been buzzing in Nicole's ear ever since. We're skipping ahead to 9:15 am to see the outcome of that..
Nicole and Derrick
Nicole: Ok.. I don't know what the frikkin' A to do.. I'm so stressed out, and I feel like we're protecting the 8. Whatever you guys are? The bomb Squad. I'm about to put up one of my best friends in the house and trust you guys.. Obviously you and Caleb are very tight. DO you see where i'm coming from as a BB player? I'm wondering if this is just a plan the 8.
Derrick: There's no plan to protect the 8, but there's nothing I can say in 45 minutes to convince you of that. You're a smart girl.
Nicole: And we don't wanna put Devin up right?
Derrick: We do, we're the biggest losers in life. We wanna get him outright? My actions will speak louder than my words. Lemme ask you a question. Are me n you in an alliance?
Derrick: So ask me anything you want.
Nicole: Are you thinking you're gonna put up Caleb then.. Is he ok with it?
Nicole: I just have to put up someone who isn't gonna come after me.
Derrick: Who in your heart would you like to put up? I think that's really your dilemma.
Nicole: Yeah.. I don't wanna put up a non-member of the..
Nicole: Would it be fine if I put her up?
Derrick: I'll give you my opinions.. Either of those people, it's a matter of who is gonna not win competitions. You wanna make sure if they get spiteful, they can't win a comp. Caleb has told me 100% that he's ok with going up..
Nicole: Ok.. I'm puttingup Amber, which means you should probably put up Caleb.. Are you putting up Jocasta?
Derrick: I think I should. She's one of the people we had agreed upon.
Nicole: Was there anyone else you'd put up besides Jacosta?
Derrick: I'm puttin' the best player in the house up.. Who's taking more of a risk?
Nicole: But he's your friend.
Derrick: My best friend in the house is Cody. I'm trying to work with you. I don't have an alliance with anyone yet. I'm trying to work with you. Can I ask you a question? Who's the one saying there's still an 8?
Nicole: Everyone who's not in the 8.
Derrick: They're literally putting their entire game on an assumption.. You're predicating it upon that. I'm assuming Christine told you it's all good. But this other 7 people is telling you otherwise. I'm thinking about changing my nominations..
Nicole: But that's just showing me that you are working together..
Derrick: I'm not doing that.. but if I was, that's what I would be thinking.
Nicole: If you didn't put up Jocasta, is there anyone else? What about Brittany?
Derrick: You have to put up 2.
Nicole: I honestly wouldn't mind putting up Jocasta, but I'd have to talk to her.
Derrick: People would think you're trying to skate around a lot of things.. If you really believe in this, this is a risk you're taking.. but it's a risk that could get you to the end. I do not have an alliance with anyone right now..
Derrick and Nicole, then Brittany
Derrick: I gotta think about my 2nd nomination.. I thought I could trust Brittany, but I'm really doubting that..
Brittany: Can I use this shirt?
Derrick: Brittany come in here a minute.. Is there an 8? What is your feeling?
Brittany: I think there was, but I'm not sure if there still is.. You're putting me up?
Derrick: There are a number of people who..
Brittany: If you're that dumb.. I think that's a slap in the face.. All I do is stick up for youm Derrick..
Derrick: You can't take this emotionally.. I'm not putting you up..
Brittany: You're like sleeping with the devil up there.. \
Derrick: That wasn't my idea.
Nicole: We're trying to talk this out.. I don't wanna put up people that aren't part of the 8..
Derrick: We're already putting up 2 who are.. I'm going with my gut. (to Brittany) I'm not putting you on the block and I'm not putting you as a have not. You weren't even considered.. You can go relax, do what you gotta do.. I hope that's enough to prove to you that this f'ing alleged 8 doesn't exist. I'm not questioning you. I literally just got brought in here half asleep and was told different things than were discussed last night.
Derrick: You're gonna throw up Amber and Victoria?
Nicole: Are you gonna hold it against me, because that's your best girlfriend in the house?
Derrick: Well, I'm not gonna take credit for your nominations.. You're not gonna take credit for mine either.
Nicole: But I have no reason to put her up.
Derrick: I have no reason to put up Jocasta. I pray with her every night.
Nicole: I gotta talk to Victoria.. You're putting up Jocasta, right?
Derrick: I'll put up Jocasta and Caleb.
OK.. If you're keeping score, that's Amber and Victoria for Nicole and Jocasta and Caleb for Derrick.
Derrick and Caleb
Derrick: It comes down to you. I already told you, I'm not gonna put you up unless you gimme the ok to do it. It's your decision as a man.
Caleb: (still groggy voiced) I'm secure with goin' up, because I think the plan will go through. I think me goin' up will be the safest thing to getting the plan to go through.
Derrick, Nicole and Victoria
Nicole: Basically, I do not want you to go home. You're one of my best friends in this house.. I freakin love you.
Derrick: Start it off like this.. Devin's goin' home this week.
Victoria: But what if..
Derrick: I'm not puttin' you up, but 100% you're not goin' home.
Victoria: But what if Devin gets chosen and wins the PoV.
Nicole: You're coming off before that. You're coming off with Battle of the Block.
Derrick: We can't tell you certain things.. You just.. Listen, you have to trust people.
This conversation with Victoria is ongoing... but I believe that gets us to where we need to be in terms of key conversations in the house..
It is now 10:48am and we've had fishies for over 30 minutes. I believe the Nomination Ceremony is underway.. If I'm correct, I'll open a Nominations Spoiler and Aftermath Post as soon as the feeds come back.
