Sleeping With The Frenemy. #BB18


Frank Eudy's eviction tonight is a done deal.  I grieved about it on Monday after Big Meech pulled off that surprising  OTEV PoV win, and I've made my peace with it.  I have waited for Frank to return to play Big Brother again for years now, so I'm glad it finally happened, even if he leaves like this, before Jury.  Sure there were some rough spots here and there, but I think last night's CBS episode sent Frank out on a high note, showcasing his humor and charm.

Of course there is a chance that Frank may be holding the Round Trip Ticket envelope that may result in Frank coming right back in the game, but if that happens, I'm pretty sure we'd see the same "Fridge" Hate Extravaganza all over again.  Production can make anybody win the Round Trip, to be brutally honest about it.  They know which numbered envelope each house guest selected, and they know where those envelopes are stashed.  They could easily come in the house during today's HoH lockdown and make a few envelope substitutions.  I'm not saying they would do that, I'm just saying that they could do that.

But this Secret Room twist is a four-week initiative...I'm not sure they would blow their wad on the first week of the time frame, even to Save Frank.  We all know that even if Frank's #6 envelope contains the Round Trip ticket fair and square, everyone will think Production intervened, anyway.  So Production loses either way, and so do all of the Frank Fans, a group that is growing every day.

I'm not even sure Frank will do podcast interviews or any other media other than what he is contractually liable to do for CBS.  Frank likes his privacy, and probably took a tip from Mike Boogie, who has no social media presence at all, and likes it that way.

OK. Let's talk about an even crappier topic: Zakiyah Everette and her thirsty ways.

This is just so ridiculous but Zakiyah is upset because of two primary things:

1.  Zakiyah saw Paulie rest his legs on Nicole while they were in a group talking, and Nicole scratched the strip of hair on the tippy top of  Paulie's head.

2.   Zakiyah saw Natalie groom Paulie's fingernails.  Zakiyah doesn't want anybody touching Paulie Califiore but her, even if it involves cleaning cuticles.

I am going to type this really big, in case that helps Zakiyah hear it:

PAULIE IS NOT INTO YOU.  
IT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.  
YOU ARE ONLY EMBARRASSING YOURSELF ON TV.
AND ALSO ALL OVER THE INTERNET. 
UNFORTUNATELY THE INTERNET STUFF IS NOT GOING AWAY.
THERE ARE WHOLE REDDIT THREADS ABOUT YOU.
BUT NOT THE GOOD KIND OF REDDIT THREADS.
I WOULDN'T LOOK IF I WAS YOU.
(OR YOUR MOM.)
(THERE'S A THREAD ABOUT HER, TOO.)


I really don't want to get into it here, but Zakiyah's mom is on Twitter, and made some sort of nasty comment about Natalie "spreading her legs wide for Paulie".  (Some times I type up some of this shit, and I just laugh and cringe at how stupid it all is.)

As Michelle Meyer knows, Reddit can be a tough place. Big Meech is getting trashed on Reddit right now, but she has her fans, too.  She has plenty of time to recover her image with them this season, and winning that PoV was a good start. And Ian Terry wants to meet her, and maybe have a little date or two with Big Meech.

Michelle did tell Bridgette that Frank never campaigned against her, so that's at least a start in reconciling with her.  She might even like Bridgette once Frank is gone, maybe even enough to work with her.  ("Midgette")
