As usual, the last couple of days in the “Big Brother” house are pretty slow and quiet. The calm before the storm, if you will. After Ricky Williams won the final five HOH following Friday’s episode of “Celebrity Big Brother” and predictably nominated Dina Lohan and Kandi Burruss, it’s just been a snail-like crawl to Wednesday’s finale. But there has been one interesting development.
Over the weekend, Ricky and Tamar Braxton discussed turning on their Bedroom Alliance member Lolo Jones, ostensibly finalizing a final two. It all came up when Tamar and Ricky said making the final two would be like winning for both of them, but they’re not sure if Lolo would feel the same way. “I think she is all in her head, thinking about that too much,” Ricky said. “I feel good about what I’m going to do. I’m going to compete. If you take me. If I win, I’m taking you.”
Tamar said ditto and then took her shot: “Is it the time to get rid of Lolo now because what if she wins?”
Ricky was initially unsure, but if Dina or Kandi won the Veto, he said Lolo, not Tamar, would be the renom. “I feel good about that,” he said.
“I hate that I said that out loud,” Tamar said, but justified it by saying Lolo leaving “really makes our chances better to win this final HOH.”
“I have the most appreciation for the way that you have played the game,” Ricky told Tamar. “I feel that you have been the most genuine, for better or for worse. I’ve been impressed with the way that you have navigated the ups and downs.”
This is a savvy move by Tamar to make a final two with Ricky, as they were both fringe members of the Not Fun Alliance that then became the Bedroom Alliance. Everyone knows that Natalie Eva Marie was Lolo’s ride or die, and now that she’s gone, Lolo has no final two pact nor has she really tried to form a new one yet. Lolo’s also upset that she got an HOH basket from her friend instead of a husband (she doesn’t have one), so she she has a lot of stuff she needs to work through right now, because gurl, really? Having Ricky in her back pocket also covers Tamar on all sides because if Kandi were to stay and win the final four HOH, Tamar is banking on Kandi taking her to final two.
Considering that Dina and Kandi are seemingly incapable of winning a comp, it’s likely the noms will stay the same, which means the Bedroom Alliance will be in the final four. The final four HOH has to cut two people, so all three Bedroom Alliance members can’t make it to the end intact. But if Lolo doesn’t win that, will Ricky and Tamar go through with their final two? Or would one of them turn on the other two and keep, like, Dina?
