Joshuah thinks that Ryan may be trying to get him backdoored this week. Sheila thinks that Ryan's nominations were cowardly since he nominated two girls who are on slop this week. James told Chelsia that he would not use the PoV on her if he won it because she has the votes to stay. He would only use it if she absolutely wanted him to. Adam thinks that Joshuah will vote the way Ryan wants since Ryan didn't nominate him.
James now decides that he will use the PoV on Chelsia if he wins it. Ryan assures Chelsia that she will be safe no matter who is nominated next to her. Natalie says that if she wins HoH next week, she will nominate Matt because he is still treating her badly. Joshuah is thinking about asking Ryan to backdoor Matt in exchange for two weeks of safety. Natalie doesn't think that he will go for that since he and Matt are close.
The HG received an oversized pool table for what they think will be the PoV competition tomorrow. Some of them practiced during the night. Chelsia and Ryan seemed pretty good at it. Joshuah, Sharon, and Sheila discussed how manipulative Matt has been lately and really want him out now. Sheila wants the girls in the house to stick together since the guys are doing the same. Natalie informed Matt of the plan to backdoor him. He was amused by it, saying that Ryan would never go for it. He really wants Sharon out now. Matt and Ryan agreed that if James tells asks them about this plan, he is on it, and cannot be trusted. Joshuah offered the deal to Ryan, but he also was not approving.
Chelsia, James, and Joshuah devised a plan to evict Matt this week. After the PoV is won, they plan on persuading Ryan to nominate Matt in exchange for two weeks of safety. They will tell him that the entire house wants that, so Ryan will feel obliged to follow the house's wishes. They named this plan "Operation C" (C standing for "Crooked Eye"). Chelsia and James do not trust Matt at all. They went to bed shortly before 3:00 AM after discussing this. All HG are still asleep as I post this.
