Frenchie is such a bullshiter… He ends the episode saying he’d never quit, meanwhile he’s threatened to self-evict.
There is always one sore loser - that's why being the first HoH is rarely a good idea. Bet he wishes he took the gamble now as I think even had he lost it he wouldn't have been a week one target.
Eh, I think the whole "it's a bad game move to win the first HOH" myth has been debunked because year after year we've seen the first HOH set the tone of the season by gathering a massive alliance and riding that out to the end game. Just in the most recent seasons you've had Cody, Nicole, Rachel, and Hayden all go on to win after being the first HOH, Tyler make F2, and a bunch of other people make it deep into the game. The Week 1 HOHs who end up getting evicted soon after are the ones who had great positions and just fucked them up due to their own mistakes, such as Cody Nickson and Willie Hantz and presumably now Frenchie.
Am I the only one getting Danielle Reyes vibes from Tiffany?
Totally agree. On reflection though Danielle didn’t neglect social strategy so much as she was a savage in the DR and neglected to anticipate how she’d be perceived by the players she evicted. Something Tiffany won’t have to worry about as much. That said I think you’re correct in saying that Tiffany is playing though soft strategy rather than full on control. I don’t think the other HG’s realize right now just how well she’s playing.I feel the same. Hearing her state she knows that if she hears anyone speak of the votes then she will know Frenchie said "because it won't come from her" shows to me she has a strategic mind at the very least and is aware of other people and how to approach situations if she is caught in a tough spot. And also the fake crying with Azah was as hilarious as it was smart. She seems to be well positioned in the house from what I have read, heard and seen. She has shown she understands the game and is making moves regarding her social bonds in the house rather than trying to control the vote specifically. Which itself is kind of the inverse of Danielle Reyes? Danielle managed one side of the house quite well but was more so focused on ensuring she had the numbers to eliminate Roddy's side of the house. So I see Tiffany as almost mending and focusing on what Danielle neglected to do overall.
