Warning! The following contains spoilers for Big Brother. Read at your own risk!
Isabella Wang or "Bella" really went hard on Nicole Anthony in the latest airing of Big Brother, and some may even say successfully bullied her into submission and manipulated Sam into putting the HouseGuest on the block alongside Cliff Hogg for elimination. Bella got what she wanted, but will this play end up backfiring on her in the end?
Anything can happen on Big Brother, and while Nicole is up for elimination, word from live feed spoilers has indicated that Cliff will end up being the person eliminated and the final entrant for Camp Comeback. That means there's a good chance Nicole is safe, and is very much back in the game after the dust settles on this recent drama.
Not only that, but Nicole has a solid number of HouseGuests who seem fine with her. Granted, none seemed so intent on sticking their neck out for her when Bella and Sam were on their rampage, but with Sam out as Head of Household, Bella might have lost her chance to try and prioritize Nicole for an elimination amongst Gr8ful or Und9able. They'll have bigger fish to fry, like whoever pops out of Camp Comeback with a score to settle.
What's more, is that it appears that Bella acting like the hurt victim more or less exposed her to some HouseGuests such as Tommy Bracco. He saw where some of Bella's actions could've been seen as bullying towards Nicole, and he may get through to his pal Christie and others that all wasn't as it seemed and that maybe, just maybe, Bella is gaming.
Let's remember Bella has only just gotten out of the whole Kemi drama (which viewers wanted her expelled for), in which the whole house essentially found out she snitched out the Black Widows alliance. How much longer can she play the victim? Surely there are people in the house realizing that her game is to side up with whoever's winning, and her constant betrayal is only going to gain her more enemies as the competition drags on.
Which, let's be honest, Bella does not seem to be one of the untouchables in Gr8ful alliance. Eventually this power team is going to start cutting its own, and right now anyone who isn't calling the shots in this alliance is, more or less, that person in every reality show who goes along with the majority until they're unceremoniously voted off. The smaller players in Gr8ful could change that if they could get the controversial Jack or Jackson out, but no one seems interested in doing that.
Suffice to say, if Nicole is still around following elimination, Bella better watch out. Big Brother continues Thursday at 9:00 p.m. ET. Stick with CinemaBlend for more on the competition, and for a look at what else is happening in the world of television and movies.
