They had to get up on a podium to "take shots" using some sort of a catapult and beanbags. James said he won the comp last season, but I can't remember what that was all about.
And they all got cute Zingbot logo T-shirts and hats that say "Zingbot for President". I'll bet they can sell some of that merchandise this week, if they advertise it for sale during the CBS episode. They probably learned their lesson after those "Gronk Party" T-shirts last year.
(After Gronk's people saw the T-shirts on TV, they made Production get all of the T-shirts back from the house guests, because Gronk didn't approve his name being used like that.)
***PoV COMPETITION RESULTS***
Victor - PoV Winner
Nicole - Won trip for two, "anywhere" in the US
James - Won $5,000
Paul - Has to perform security clearances of the houseguests and also sections of the house for one week.
Corey - Has to wear a Patriot Tard for the week
Paulie - Has to bake apple pies on demand for a certain period of time
***ZINGBOT RAN HIS METAL ZAP, OF COURSE***
Here is a summary of the Zingbot's various Zings for the house guests:
Paul: Paul, you have given us many catchphrases.....your boy...friendship...pissed. Well I have a catchphrase for you...SHUT THE FUCK UP.
Victor: Victor I'm trying to think of the perfect Zing, but it's better if I speak in Spanish...then the Zingbot said "Victor, you are a douchebag" in Spanish.
Corey: Something about how he can't sweep Nicole off her feet, because Hayden already did. Corey thought it was weak, and afterwards expressed several times that he was surprised that being in a showmance was mentioned twice. (in his Zing and also Nicole's)
James: Something about how it must hurt to look at yourself in the mirror, or maybe how Natalie's family won't like him. James said they didn't have much to go on for him, admitting he's short, so what.
Nicole: Something about having no shot to win the game, and throwing it for Corey. She later said she was happy about it, since it made her sound weak in the game.
Paulie: Unknown, but might have been about Cody and Derrick.
Michelle: Something about crying and throwing up. She said she liked it and wants us to be surprised when we hear it.
Natalie: Unknown, but she said they knew better than to pick on her appearance, because she would have cried.
***BEHOLD THE PATRIOT TARD***
When you see a tight camera shot of a closed door, you know something is about to happen.
And here is Corey, wearing his Patriot Tard and exclaiming "God Bless America". Everyone cheered and came over to get a closer look.
Corey says he has to wear the costume for a full week, and will be getting some sort of complementary swim suit to wear outside. He has to hold the Zingbot banner and the eagle puppet on his hands at all times.
Corey: Even if I'm in the shower, I have to hold one hand out to hold one of them at all times.
Nicole: They're gonna get dirty and nasty.
Corey: Yeah, my hands are already sweating.
It's really funny looking because Corey is so tall. With that hat he looks like Uncle Sam.
Victor came over to inspect the eagle. Corey can make it's head move around.
James: That bird is everything!
(ha ha ha ha)
I think there is velcro on that glove that Corey is wearing under the Zingbot sign.
Nicole: We have to wear all of these costumes on the live show, and you have to hold those things.
Corey went over to the nomination chair and practiced saying Hi to Julie. I heard him say later that the costume is really tight on him, particularly in the crotch area. I'm sure they don't make unitards for giants.
As the group broke up James said that Corey was over it already, and Corey kind of sighed in agreement. Nicole, always supportive of Corey, said that she couldn't imagine anybody looking any better in a unitard, and that she loves the colors.
Corey wants to work out and eat all week, since those are the only times that he can put down his handheld accessories. I'm sure Nicole is LOVING the fact that they are in costumes together. And Production is, too. It sounds like Victor traded the PoV necklace for the Patriot Tard, sticking Corey with the punishment.
***PAULIE WANTS TO SELF-EVICT***
He's said this several times last night. Big surprise....Paulie is a poor sport. But we all knew that already. He is making statements now about how he is claustrophobic, and won't be able to handle being confined in the Jury house.
And he has also repeated several times that once he is sure that there is no jury buyback, he's going to leave and go home. This doesn't surprise me AT ALL. Can you imagine him stuck in the Jury House with all of those "female losers"? I really think there is something seriously wrong with him.
Nicole whispered to Corey that she thinks Paulie might self-evict before Thursday night. Corey wondered what would happen if Paulie did self-evict, and Nicole said they might go ahead with the game, with Victor putting someone else on the block in Paulie's place.
Corey: That would be Natalie....but I'd still leave, wouldn't I?
Nicole and Corey went into the bedroom to try and pep Paulie up. He's admitting defeat now in the game now, and started the spiel about his claustrophobia, and how he doesn't want to be cooped up in the Jury House. Nicole has been telling him that Cody and Derrick wouldn't want him to do that, and then Paulie discloses what he is most worried about, which was quite a shock to me.
Paulie: I'm gonna have to sit out there and get crushed in my good-bye messages, especially Natalie's....like what she did to Victor.
Corey assured him that he'll leave a great message for America to hear about Paulie. Paulie later virtually begged Michelle to leave a positive good bye message for him, and to give him at least one sympathy vote.
(Big Meech agreed to do that, but surely he knows she is lying, right? She told him to his face that she "plays dirty".)
Knowing what we all know, I think the longer that Paulie can stay out of sight, and out of mind, the better things will be for him. The best thing he can do is go to the Jury and hide out for a month. The camera crew comes around periodically, so he can put on a good face when the cameras roll, and let America forget about him until the Finale.
Remember Jozea? He feels like a distant memory to the live feeders, and he was an absolute maniac. Someone in the DR needs to tell Paulie this, probably the staff psychiatrist. Pretty sure she'll be on call this week.
Yesterday Paulie told Michelle that he "lied on his application" where it asked if he'd ever seen a psychiatrist.. We went to FISH right after he said that, but before that he made some other comments.
Paulie: I asked the psychiatrist what he thought about me coming in here, and he said that I'd be playing with fire if I did that.
We know Paulie likes to embellish almost every story, but I've also heard him say that he got the casting call from Robyn Kass very late in the game, just a week or two before being sequestered. I hope Production IMMEDIATELY called Paulie's family to get the real story about any mental issues he may have. He is clearly unable to handle his current situation. I wouldn't want to be around that, would you? It feels risky to me, with a few of those girls being trapped in there with him hating them so much.
***PAUL'S SECURITY SEARCHES AND CLEARANCE CHECKS***
I haven't watched the big reveal of Paul's punishment, but here is a RED ALERT that occurred around 2:00 AM this morning. Paul (and the entire London Room) was awoken by a very loud announcement about the alert. I think the numbers on the Zingbot Presidential seals signify that he needs to "clear" 5 suspects, and 4 areas. Something like that.
James was laughing about it, and said he saw the camera rotate over to Paul's bed with the red light on, so he knew Paul was about to be awakened. Paul was in a deep sleep, and cursed as he put on his sunglasses, which must be worn at all times he is awake.
Paul's costume is a sweet-looking suit. He makes some adjustments and BB sounded another LOUD alert to get him to move faster.
Paul had trouble adjusting his tie in the dark.
He stepped out into the light to put on his Secret Service earpiece.
This is exactly what the Secret Service earpiece looks like.
I don't want to tell the story here, but I rode in the back of a Secret Service car one time in Washington DC. My friend I was traveling with was acquainted with one of the President's immediate family members (not President Obama) so when we were in town my friend made a call and yadda yadda yadda there we were visiting the immediate family member ("IFM") in the White House.
I just typed a whole paragraph that I deleted...I really don't want to name names and tell the story here but I've been where most Americans will never go. And then we rode around town with the Secret Service guys assigned to the IFM to go out to dinner, and then they drove my friend and I back to our hotel at the end of the night.
I flirted with them a little, asking them if they were "packing pieces". They were, they assured me. I don't know exactly where they were when we were in the restaurant, but the second we walked back out on the street with the IFM one of the agents was right there, guiding us to the idling car.
It's like another life, but it happened. Long ago and far away.
Back to Paul, and his punishment. I think this punishment could go very wrong, in the wrong hands, but Paul is the perfect person to receive it. He is a great sport about it, has plenty of energy, and will be very sensitive when touching people. Plus, that suit is funny because of his beard. And I think he looks MUCH better with all of those horrid tattoos covered up.
He's doing a security check on Corey in the picture below. I think he has to keep count aloud.
Paul: Suspect 1, cleared.
Then he went in the Have Not room and "cleared" Nicole, who was giggling in her orange Unitard.
Paul: Suspect 2, cleared.
Michelle: Oh, you're only on #2?
Michelle proudly stood up tall to be cleared by Paul. I know she is LOVING all of this action as a SuperFan. I've even heard her saying she hopes everyone trashes her in the DR.
(ha ha ha)
See what I mean about being sensitive about searching people? They joked about the suspect being uncooperative.
Paul is searching James in the picture below. Everyone is laughing and having fun with this. I think it's going to be like last year's Whackstreet Boys...Paul will need to perform on call all week.
Paul went upstairs to find Victor, and visited the HoH room twice, without success.
He even felt the bedspread to see if Victor was wrapped inside, and checked to see if he was in the bathroom.
Finally Paul found Victor coming out of the DR.
Victor, assuming the position: I don't have anything, but you can check.
They're all pretty sure Paul will be doing this during important ceremonies and gatherings, maybe even on the live show.
Then Paul has to go around to the various Zingbot Presidential seals and say that he checked the area, and that it is "clear".
I think this is a great punishment and will be fun for us to watch this week. But Paulie is saying that he will not bake his apple pies, and will take the penalties instead.
No surprise there, because Paulie is a poor sport and a douchebag. If fucking Corey can walk around in that Patriot Tard, then Paulie can strap on an apron and bake a few pies.
