Tuesday Afternoon with Donny and Nicole
Good afternoon, BB Lovers! At long last, we have talkers! It's block buddies Nicole and Donny and they're dishing, sorting through lies, finding clarity and, for Nicole, some level of acceptance for what feels like a doomed fate.. Let's listen in, shall we?
Nicole and Donny
Camera 3 and 4
Nicole: The weird thing is, they kept telling Cody and Derrick kept telling Hayden that they didn't trust Christine.. and they didn't wanna work with her.
Donny: But they may..
Nicole: That was part of the plan, for sure.
Donny: When she come to me and said put Cody up, she probably had already okayed it through Cody.
Nicole: She lied. She said she never said that. And she told me to put Cody up, and she said she never said that either.
Donny: yeah.. I don't know.. If they got together with Cody and told him, or if they really wanted to keep Caleb just as a target. But she did say that... in the Beehive Room. Cuz she said, she didn't know who me n you was puttin' up, she'd like to see Jocasta.. she said it like it was.
Nicole: Cody would never believe that she said that.
Donny: I think they're married to each other. Have you ever seen a married woman touch that many guys?
Nicole: mm mm nope! Hayden said somethin', I said somethin'.. I've never seen someone so on top of people when they're married. That's why.. I didn't even know if she really was married.
Donny: That might be her brother. Well, that's right.. weddin' picture.
Nicole: I think she'll just do whatever she's got to do. She's way more on top of people and she's married, and I'm frikkin' single. After Hayden left, I didn't wanna flirt with no one. I'm just so annoyed. That's not my tactic..
Donny: I'll tell you who I really like. I like Zach.
Nicole: I do like Zach.. but he's the one that got me on the friggin' block.
**mmmeehhh.. not so much. He and the rest of the guys were just doing Derrick's leg work, per usual.
Donny: You reckon?!
Nicole: That's what Christine said.
Donny: Pshhh! hahaha. What? And you believe?
Nicole: Maybe I should talk to Zach.
Donny: Nah.. He'll just tell everything you say. I said I like him, not that I trust him.
Nicole: I do like him.. As much crap as he's done to me.
Donny: He could be playing a character. He goes to bed and sleeps 27 hours. It could be wearin' him out, playin' a character. I think there's a sensitive side to him.. his little brother, his dog..
Nicole: Oh definitely.
**I have to ask myself if Donny is saying these things in hopes of them getting back to Zach..
Donny: He's just so likeable. My lord, if I was gone and you was here, and then like Zach was gone, it would be miserable.. Same as if you was gone, then Zach, what would we do? At least we can set n watch Zach play pool in the evening.
They move from Zach to Cody..
Nicole: As nice n stuff as Cody is, he's not entertaining, he's not fun to be around. He's boring.
Donny: He was a very likeable early on, but he's gotten manipulated. Unless he's the genius who's masterminding it all very quietly.
Nicole: I think know what happened now. hehehe.. gosh..
Donny: I don't feel safe. The first 3 times I was up on the block, Cody would hug my neck 'n say, you ain't goin' nowhere.. And this time, they didn't.
Nicole: Probably cuz I was standin' right next to you.
Donny: It's probably cuz they really don't know, and they really wont decide til the last moment, like they did .. . Poor old Zach likes me, but.. I voted him out.
Nicole: But she wouldn't put me up unless I was going home. She would've put up Victoria.
Donny:Well, she put you up cuz she wants you gone, but the voters may want to keep ya. See what I'm sayin'?
Donny: See, she may not have no more say so..
Nicole: She has no power next week.
Donny: Yeah, but she don't need it. People like Derrick have not needed power the whole game. Never knowin' what it feels like to get on the block, to have to compete in a Battle of the Block to get yourself off.. Never played in a Battle of the Bkock..
**Oh, Derrick's had power the whole game. He just hasn't had to win much to retain it. From where I'm sitting, that resonates as a truer power than the power granted by comp wins. But.. what do I know..
Donny: Never know what it feels like to compete in a Power of Veto when he's on the block.
Nicole: (in her own thoughts) I can't believe I'm getting backdoored! That's friggin' awesome. Whatever. I don't even care. Ha! You know, being backdoored is kind of a privilege.. Know what I mean?
Donny: Ya know, if you was to go, then Julie can ask you.. You know how at the beginning of the season, she said the Head of Household could end up goin' home? She could talk to you about that.
Nicole: I'm the 1st one! You know what? It Sucks!
Donny: Maybe that'll be her only question..
Nicole: It finally happened. Wow.. This is when Rachel Reilly got out.
Nicole: She was the 1st member of the jury, but their jury was only 7, and ours is 9.. My strategy was to.. I never wanted to throw a competition, because I wouldn't want to throw one and go home that week. But after being in the house, I realized how awful it was to be HoH. People are definitely throwing comps left and right, because they don't wanna get their hands dirty, but if they were to throw one and go home that week, they'd be like, I threw every competition, I didn't get my hands dirty at all...
**this is a great line. I hope it makes the cut.
This conversation is ongoing for nearly an hour. At 3:26pm, Victoria comes outside and joins them for a little while.. Everyone else is STILL sleeping. OK.. What this says to me is that they are going to be unbelievably active All Night Long, so I really better be on my toes for the Overnight Report. +3 hours of sleep just wont cut it. So... I'll see you back here then.☺
