So, Corey used his PoV to take himself off the block, which meant that a new Road Kill nomination would take place. It seemed like the feeds were down for a long time....but when they returned, things were far from boring.
But like most good Big Brother dramas, finding out what happened took some time....and some listening and watching.
The cameras followed DaVonne as she stormed across the backyard, being really loud about what a great day it was, and how she's not stressed at all. Being really extra about everything. I heard Zakiyah saying something about that "being easier than she thought".
Da'Vonne: And she can't even flip her hair...that's why I did that. That's Shade 101. But she tried to do it and she couldn't...that's why I was like "your hair's not long enough, bitch".
Da'Vonne: Did you see their faces when he used the PoV? I don't think they thought he would do it, but when we had to film it over she couldn't stop smiling when he used it.
***HERE'S WHAT APPARENTLY HAPPENED***
Da'Vonne flipped her braids around in indignation after she saw her picture on the nomination screen, and the braids hit Tiffany, maybe even in the face. This caused Production to re-shoot parts of, or maybe even the entire ceremony. I heard Corey say something about having to do his part twice, too. I don't think Da'Vonne hit Tiffany with her braids intentionally, but I know she has struggled in the past not to react physically when she is angry.
(If anyone is questioning that last sentence, go back and watch the footage after "Butt Gate"---Da'Vonne lost her temper when Frank touched her and kept saying she "almost hit him" and also repeated that she would be out of the game if she did hit him----that is why she was so upset about it at the time. And Da'Vonne said that, not me. She knows that keeping her temper in check is a necessity if she wants to succeed this summer.)
Da'Vonne: They think they're going to get me to blow up and cause drama, but that's not gonna happen....I did that in my season, but I'm not gonna do that now!
Da'Vonne wanted some juice, and was very loud with the chatter as she went over to pour it and taste it. Tiffany was in the kitchen and was nervous about going in the backyard, but both Nicole and Frank told her it was okay, to just go out there.
Honestly I thought this was Nikki Graham...I didn't recognize Tiffany at first. Someone asked her if she was too hot to wear that in the sun, but Tiffany murmured something about it feeling okay.
And then the Mean Girls started making loud, derogatory comments about Tiffany, knowing that she's sitting right there and can hear them. After a few minutes Tiffany got up and started walking back in the house.
Michelle, in a taunting tone: Oh...it's time to go inside and put the sunglasses on again!
Da'Vonne: She's so shady with her lyin' ass!
(What is Michelle doing? She needs to tone it down three notches, at least.)
Frank just took it all in, surveying the damage and probably looking for opportunities to gather evidence against Da'Vonne. He told everyone about the intense rain storms that happen every afternoon in South Florida, like clockwork.
Frank had a quick little exchange with Tiffany inside earlier, where he said that the cameras caught it, and she could try to discuss the issue with Production. He indicated that Production probably won't be mad if Tiffany makes an issue about it, but there was no guarantee that anything would happen.
(Let's face it, even a penalty vote for Day would be a tremendous help for Tiffany this week, but I certainly don't expect that to happen, particularly if Da'Vonne didn't mean to hit her. I'm sure Production checked the tapes and are probably studying it now like the Zapruder film.)
