WEEK 1

Seeing Dylan win by spending literally all of his cash on the red pay phone...my god...and now he's got next to nothing points-wise lol. Good to know he's basically out of the game in that aspect unless the fans award him 5,000 more points. Anyways, kinda bummed I didn't win safety or HoH. I really wanted to be in a position of power or at least safety for this first week in order to properly get myself settled in, but I think that I've managed to socialize with these guys enough over these first few 'days' that I should be fine. I've already made a lot of deals with people and will hopefully get an alliance chat started up soon, plus I've been pretty active in the house chat. I don't think I got too much to worry 'bout.

–Nifty



WEEK 2

I'm glad we got out the guy with friends and allies that I wasn't friends or allies with. Could've been a very bad situation for me down the road had Dylan not given the house that opportunity. However now that Dylan's strange HoH reign has ended, I'm debating whether or not I should try to get him nominated and evicted next week. Depending who won HoH and all that it could either be very easy or extremely difficult, but Dylan's proved that he's not afraid to be unpredictable and he doesn't care that he is lol. While I like having someone like that on my side for the first week, it could become an issue later in the game. I'll talk to some of my closer allies, like Edward and Hickman, about it all. I feel like the majority of the house would definitely be up for it, though.

–Nifty



Ugh my god, this week is so much more stressful for me as HoH. I wanna target Dylan, but I need a pawn and a backup target in case Dylan doesn't go. I already got a good amount of support for Dylan going but I don't have a pawn. I could use Tayne as a backup target cuz he hasn't been all that active, but then I still need a pawn and I feel like no matter who else I put up will be pissed at me!

If push comes to shove then I guess I'll just have to deal with it and put up one of them as a pawn using random.org. Still though, this week is going to be stressful for me. I'm glad I make it to Week 3 safely but one wrong string pulled could send my whole game crashing down like the village of Pompeii.

–Nifty



WEEK 3

Well, managed to make the plan happen. Dylan has taken 12th, and the rest of us have made it to Week 3. However now I feel like I might be screwed if either Kyle or Tata wins HoH this week, seeing as I nominated them pre-POV. Hopefully I can find a way to stay safe and not suffer a similar fate as Dylan did; winning HoH one week and getting evicted the very next.

–Nifty



I'm really not liking these post-veto noms. Like it's obvious Jordan isn't making any moves and is just saving the people on his side. There are clearly bigger targets in this house than Hickman and Kyle and Jordan used his HoH this week to take the easy way out. A waste of an HoH if you ask me. You can bet I'm going after Jordan and most likely Tata next chance I get.

–Nifty



WEEK 4

Screw them cowards. First Jordan, now Michael. Both not willing to make a move at all. Luckily I bought Mystery Prize B and now I can't be overthrown whenever I'm HoH, so you better bet yer asses that I'm gonna work hard to win next week. Going to show them that I'm not afraid to go after those who are too afraid to do their own thing.

–Nifty



Thank the lord that Michael is willing to make a move this week! All it took was for someone willing to make a move to win PoV and suggest it to him. Kind of disappointing he didn't want to do something like this right away, but at least he's doing it.

So, the plan is to use the PoV on Eva and then Michael will put Tata up, as Jordan, Alex, and Tata are all in an alliance together (kinda obvious at this point) and Tata is the strongest at competitions out of the three of 'em. So not only do we weaken that alliance's influence even more, we also get out one of the bigger challenge threats in this house other than me. Things are looking really up for me right now

–Nifty



WEEK 5

Well, it sucks that Kyle went...my target, Tata, is now in the house one week longer and knows for a fact I'm after her if she didn't realize it already. Found out Edward was the one to flip on us with the plan. But, I think I've managed to make some good out of all this even with my plans for the next few weeks being screwed. I went up and talked to Jordan to tell him that I wanted Tata out and not necessarily him or his alliance, and we could still work together. He then reveals to me he was more so working alongside Eva and Hunter than Tata and Alex...and I'm like o-o this is news to me! So now Jordan wants Eva and Hunter gone ASAP for betraying him this vote, and I was like "yea man I'm up for it." My game this season is about getting out the biggest current threats, both in the house and general and to my game. Now after talking to Jordan a little, I've finalized my current list. 1: Tata 2: Eva 3: Michael Hopefully I can remain in a position where I can stay fluid and working with whoever at any time, so this list of 3 dwindles down to a list of everyone left in the final four or five.

–Nifty



I think I am in an almost perfect spot this week. I'm in good relations with people on every side of the house EXCEPT Tata. I used to think up to this week that Jordan, Alex, and Tata were a strong alliance of three. Talking to Alex and Jordan more in depth has allowed me to realize they aren't as strong as I thought, Jordan is pissed at Eva and Hunter cuz he trusted them and they flipped on Jordan this recent vote. Alex is pissed at Michael and Hunter as I told Alex that they're dead set on evicting him, Jordan, and Tata (which isn't false, however I somewhat propelled those motives) Michael and Hunter are, from what I've seen, dead set on getting out Tata, Jordan, and Alex and trust me for now so I'm not a target on that front. Eva...well I'm not quite sure where she stands on who she wants out BUT I know she isn't going to target me and is working to get out Tata as well. Edward is my m80 and won't turn on me unless it was like, Final 3 or 4 and he knew he had to get rid of me to win. And even then I don't know if he would evict me. Which leaves Tata, who knows I'm after her after TWO attempts to get her evicted, lol. So I'm just praying Tata loses HoH so I can safely ride into the Final 7.

–Nifty



Honestly I'm hoping that I don't lose the PoV competition this week, as if I do win the PoV then I'll have to pull some crazy moves in order to remain good with all sides of the house to next week. I don't wanna just straight-up throw the PoV comp though. I wanna actually try to win it. If I win it, then oh well I'll just have to get creative but I want to still put an effort forth. Anyways, Edward has been talkin' to me and suggesting of blindsiding Hunter and getting him out over Michael, who I feel like is the bigger threat of the two. I don't know if we'll be able to pull off such a task, but I do support it because if we can get Hunter out then Michael doesn't have a lap dog to help him out + there's another big target still in the house that'll keep the focus away from me.

–Nifty



Phew! Thank god I wasn't the renom. I was starting to get a bit worried about Alex catching on to what I was doing and backdooring me or something. Glad I'm making it another week, though. Just shows me that everyone here really doesn't see what I'm doing. Except for Edward, who has the same intentions as me so he's not going to try and get rid of me for doing what he's trying to do.

–Nifty



WEEK 6

I think we are going to see our first, and most likely only, overthrow of the season. It takes 75% of the house, so either 4 or 5 is the magic number. I know I'm wanting Tata overthrown because I'm totally against her, Hunter and Edward want the same. I think Eva and Alex will also be on board. Who will be HoH out of the 5 of us, I really don't care. I think I'll be safe this week no matter what as long as Tata is overthrown. In other news I got to answer the red pay phone and now I'm taking people to dinner. However the caller suggested that it would be more than just dinner ( if you know what I mean ;D ) so I'm going to have to think about these choices carefully. I have no idea what waits for us when we sit down to eat.

–Nifty



Managed to overthrow Tata, and I bought the HoH for myself...also that Red Pay Phone turned out to be vicious this round and now I'm left with very low amounts of cash unsure emoticon so that's fun...

Anyways, up until this week I was doing an impossible balancing act. I was good on all sides of the house except one: Tata, and the whole house is basically against her now so that part doesn't worry me as much. However, now that I've nominated Jordan and Eva I've damaged a few more social relations. Hopefully I can repair them after this week, as I've managed to do so far.

To focus on the here and the now though, my sights this week are shifted onto Jordan as the primary target, Eva as the backup in case Jordan gets off the block. Eva is not as good at competitions and we can expect that from her, but Jordan's won an HoH and has done well in a few competitions so far. I don't need someone like that in the house for much longer, as that will be very threatening to me come next week.

–Nifty



Yep...things are slowly falling apart for me this week. : P. I've pretty much pissed off everyone in the house one way or another except for Alex. Well, and Hunter but I don't think he gets pissed as long as he isn't nominated. He's acting like a lap dog to me 'cause I'm HoH. I wouldn't be surprised if he's done this with all the other HoH's so far

–Nifty



If I somehow get higher than 6th place this season after my clusterfuck, shady as hell, indecisive and overall messy HoH reign this week than I'll have experienced my first miracle.

–Nifty



WEEK 7

Thank god that HoH reign is finally over. Out of the frying pan...and straight into the incinerator. That's what it's looking like for me right now if anyone other than Edward wins HoH this week, and while Edward has had some close calls in challenges he hasn't won anything. Yet. Hopefully that changes this week so I'm safe to Final 5. Anyways, it REALLY blows that Alex went but it was either my biggest ally who was being targeted by a good portion of the house, or my biggest ally who seemingly is still UTR and has a chance to go some distance. So I chose Edward to be safe from nominations and regretfully doomed Alex. It's also super weird right now because my gameplay was and still is to get out the threats...but literally everyone left is a threat in some way. There's still no clear goat in my eyes, except for maybe me after last week : P but it's going to be interesting to see how people deal with such a strong group of people left in the Final Six. And even more interesting to see which people rise up and win it all.

–Nifty



I think one of the upsides to being heavily targeted this week is that if I do get evicted, at least I'm heading off to a jury house that didn't have problems with me in the game. Last time I was on a jury, I didn't exactly get the warmest of welcomes : P

–Nifty



Oh yeah forgot to mention earlier, I bought Mystery Prize D with what little money I had left because screw it. Wasn't going to be able to use the money on much else. Turns out I bought myself a free vote against me at the next eviction I'm a post-veto nominee in! grin emoticon So, master plan: Don't get nominated for the rest of the game! Which is near-impossible! I'm gonna be screwed! Hahaha!

Nah hopefully I can somehow play around this thing. Maybe get nominated next to Tata or something who's the bigger threat, in the sense of challenges. Otherwise I'm screwed massively by this

–Nifty



I actually believe that this mansion suddenly said "Man, Nifty is really stinky. Let's kick him out" and is now literally having everything gang up against me this week

–Nifty



And so the deciding battle begins. This PoV is pretty time-consuming and difficult, so I'm not sure if the score I sent in is a good one or not. I don't even know if the others are purchasing advantages or disadvantages. Heck, for all I know, Jordan could be playing his cursed trophy and all this time I spent on this challenge was just wasted. I really do think it's going to take a miracle for me to get to Week 8 in this game and place higher than sixth. But at least from what I've heard from Jordan nominating me this week, I at least know I played a great game w/ this season.

–Nifty



Because I don't want to do this in the house chat and piss people off: YESSSSS. Fuuckkkk yesss oh my god. I spent like. 3 hours playing that game. To get the score I wanted. Yessss. Final 5 suckas!!!

–Nifty



Earlier, I said I would have to experience my first miracle in order to get a placement higher than 6th in this season. Well that miracle has arrived! And in the form of this shiny Power of Veto. I know at this point it's pretty much Nifty v The Mansion, with the exception of Edward if he survives this week. So I gotta keep working hard like I did in this PoV if I want to get to the end and win this shit. Still though, feels great to be surviving again.

–Nifty



WEEK 8

LMAO THEY PUT -60% ON MY SCORE! These guys really are shittin' their pants over me lol. But at the end, I don't think it matters because the best scenario happened this week: Edward won HoH, and he is pretty much the only one still on my side in this game. So, I'm hoping that he doesn't betray me this week and waits until you know, next round or even final three to do that shit. But yea this is best scenario because if Edward does stick with me and go against the other three, which are in an obvious F3 alliance at this point, then I go to final 4 still eligible to play in the F4 HoH AND THATS WHEN THE STORE SHUTS DOWN! So no more advantages or disadvantages just pure skill--which I can definitely do. So I'll hopefully win F4 HoH, if not F4 veto and make it to the FHOH where it's a battle to the death from there. Honestly as long as I'm able to do good in these last few challenges and if Edward doesn't try to take me out this week, I think I'm winning this game.

–Nifty



Well this sucks. My on ally in this game just got himself nominated as a punishment for not submitting a replacement nom in time 😕 now he's most likely gonna be evicted leaving me in a 3 v 1 battle for the rest of the game. I have to win at least two of the final three competitions in order to make it to the end and win this thing...it's gonna be a lot of skill and effort but hopefully I can underdog it.

–Nifty



WEEK 9

This uphill battle has gotten a lot steeper since Week 6. Now literally everyone is against me. I'm in a 3 v 1 competition and gotta rely solely on competition wins in order to propel myself to that finale night. That's 3 out of 5 competitions I gotta win. Luckily for me these guys aren't the best at challenges but they've surprised me from time to time, so one slip up and I'm done for.

–Nifty



YESSS! Final Three, baby! And my one big concern now is just Jordan. If I can keep Hunter off the block and get him to evict Jordan, then I feel like I got that FHOH hands down. Jordan hasn't beaten me recently, but for all I know he could surpass me in one of the FHOH parts so I don't want to risk it. Anyways I'm so excited and confident (or is it cocky...) that I'm making the F2 that I already got my opening speech all written up and ready for when finale night comes around. I also got a jury question ready, should the unfortunate happen and I lose FHOH, but I feel like that'll be an easier thing to write up. So I won't make it in advance in the hopes that I'll succeed.

–Nifty



WEEK 10

Welp, I made it to the very last competition. Comin' into this game I wouldn't have imagined being here at the final HoH but...I managed to do it even with quite a few bumps along the way. Hunter made a smart choice last week by evicting Eva, because Hunter is going to the end no matter what. What mattered to him was that one of his alliance members make it to the end with him, hence why he chose to keep Jordan--so that there's still some chance at me being beaten. Literally the only thing that could screw me up is Jordan...so I have to make sure that I beat him at the very least no matter what in this competition, or else I'm takin' third. And after all the effort and time I've put into doing competitions and playing all sides of the house up until Week 6...I don't want that all to be for third place.

–Nifty



OPENING STATEMENT

Heyo! I'm gonna make this opening speech precise and to-the-point as well as leave some details unmentioned so I can bring them out more while answering questions. I believe I should win for three primary reasons. 1: Every time I won a competition prior to Week 7, I always used it to shift the game and/or attempt to take out a power player. -Week 2, I won HoH and told nearly everyone prior to me winning HoH about my plan to backdoor Dylan. I successfully got that plan carried through. -Week 4, I won PoV and managed to open up Michael's plans for the week by offering to help him with a backdoor rather than going with easy targets for the week. This plan failed, but I still was the reason it went into motion. -Week 6, with the help of Edward campaigning for it, the house overthrew Tata and I took HoH to try and take out a social threat in the house. This plan was a Pyrrhic Victory, as I ended up getting out a social threat...but it was someone who at the time was on my side 😕 2: I've shown that I truly want to win this with my several competition wins. -I spent an average of an hour playing every competition I was eligible to compete in. Sometimes I took even longer, like in the Week 7 Veto where I was nominated pre-Veto. -I won competitions when I felt I needed to, and when I knew needed to towards the end game. -I have the most competition wins out of anyone else in this season. 3: I believe I've played an overall better game than Hunter has. -I played with all sides of the house and was in good relations with almost everyone up until Week 6, while Hunter (from what I've seen) always just sucked up to the current HoH to do whatever they wanted them to do. -Between social relations early on and competition wins in the late game, I kept myself off the block post-veto the entire game while Hunter was nominated once pre-veto and twice post-veto. -I actually became a threat that scared people as the game went on while Hunter, I'm pretty sure, was going to be sitting here as the goat to anyone else in the F5. To sum it up: I think I should win this season due to my dedication, time, and skill with the competitions, the moves that I made with said competition wins, and my social game being good enough to keep me off the block and prevent people from seeing me as too big of a threat until it was too late.
