Rome. Byzantine. Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris. All empires eventually fall.

So it’s no big surprise Big Brother’s first large-scale alliance of the season is beginning to crumble. That’s right — in the short time it took Beanie Vanessa to evolve into the less-exciting version of herself, a.k.a. Fedora Tiffany, the Eight Pack has lost steam. But as far as we know, the plan is still to shut down the lone wolf formerly known as the Puerto Rican Sensation. Heading into tonight’s live eviction, Victor had been pegged for the long walk home, but anything can change. Let’s recap.

As the veto ceremony ends, we find out Paul loves Victor but ultimately doesn’t care at all about Victor hitting the door over him — Paul is out for Paul, and you have to love that. Victor’s not out yet, though. He dials into Natalie and James because they’re on Team Unicorn. Unfortunately, the team system has literally never mattered, so that’s a sad time for ol’ Vic. Do you know what Victor should focus on? The fact Tiffany is literally bonkers.

She’s bouncing around, throwing Frank (who is in her alliance) under the bus for being vaguely chauvinistic so the other girls will throw him out. It feels like a solid Diet Vanessa strategy, but if you remember, Vanessa was essentially playing the game with a house of idiots, sooo… Meanwhile, dark horse Bridgette ran over to Frank and tried to clue him in by throwing Tiffany under the Frank train REAL hard.

Frank then relays back to “his boys” that the girls are getting a little too smart for their own good, so the collective gentlemen debate whether Tiffany should leave instead. The issue is, Frank isn’t doing himself any favors by trying to bring Paulie into the Eight Pack. It’s actually kind of reinforcing Tiffany’s point… even though I swear on a floater’s life vest that I would NEVER publicly defend Tiffany. Frank decides to tell him about it, but the rest are not thrilled about it. Oh, Frank. Da’Vonne 2.0 plays it super cool when he tells her, but she’s ready to end Frank’s run at the first opportunity. ASIDE: Just in case I never get another opportunity to say it, I am loving Da’Vonne’s game this season.
