The last night of the premiere revealed that Christie was HOH for the week; the longest week ever. She is now headed into Day 12 of her HOH and there hasn't even been a veto meeting. The live feeds weren't on for the first week of the game so there is a lot of discussions and content that was missed, but Christie nominated Kathryn and Cliff for eviction.
Cliff has been cool as a cucumber as far as I have seen. He's done a really great job not seeming too paranoid and mingling with all sides of the house. He's played his time on the block very well. He's got great relationships with the majority of the people in the house and I would be shocked to see him voted out come Wednesday.
Kathryn has been a complete basket case the entire week. He closest allies, Holly and Jackson, are so close to flipping and voting her out. She's emotional, irrational, and overall the way she has handled this nomination has been completely exhausting as a live feed viewer. I can not even imagine how draining she is to live with.
It took me a couple of days to really get a feel for what is going on in the house. I quickly realized that there was a plan in motion to take down Cliff and replace him with Kemi. I did not see how this served anyone in the house, especially those in the large alliance. After further" research" AKA (watching hours of live feeds), it sounds like a very lighthearted comment was made about Jack and Jackson's cooking by Kemi so they have been gunning for her ever since. This is not a group move! This is Jack and Jackson's move.
I could tell that the entire time live feeds had been up that Christie didn't feel right about this move to backdoor Kemi. Why would she? Kemi was in no way shape or form coming after her. Last night, she finally had a breakthrough and realized that Jack was using her to get Kemi out for him. It will be interesting to see how this all unfolds. There is a new backdoor target at this time, but expect the unexpected. It's still a long week for gameplay to change direction and flip.
I need to close by saying this. Tommy and Nicole are the best!! These two are my picks for America's Favorite and someone you may see at the end. Tommy is a social threat. Everyone likes him! Nicole is so smart and a tremendous listener. I haven't heard either of their names come out of anyone's mouth as a potential nomination. If they keep playing nice and avoid power for a while, these two have the best shot.
