Paul was a veteran in a season of newbies, so it was no surprise many people were starstruck by him and played for him. Throughout the season the game was going exactly the way Paul wanted. He was winning HoHs when he needed to and throwing them to his "puppets." But in the end, it all came crumbling down for Paul when he ultimately lost the $500,000 for the second time in a row in a 5-4 vote to Josh. He became the first person to go to the final 2 and lose. So where did all go wrong for Paul?

1. Unnecessarily Lying To The Jury

Paul lied when there was no need to. He should have been to the jury (like Josh) in his goodbye messages instead of lying to them. He should have known that the jury was going to compare notes. For instance, whenever Jason was getting evicted, his goodbye to him was pinning the blame on Josh and Christmas instead of owning up to his game move of having to cut him. After his goodbye message Josh's showed up and revealed that he was in an alliance with Paul and Christmas and that is why he had to go. Josh was honest and Paul was not, so Josh ended up getting more respect from Jason in this case.

2. Not Owning Up to His Game Moves

Paul played a great game this season, but he lost many of the jury members' votes for not owning up to his game moves and just acting like he was all about friendship. Instead, he should have said he had to do these moves in order to advance himself further. The jury would have respected him more had he done so. Alex even said in the backyard interview how she would have voted for Paul had he told her he had been honest. Josh's answers to the jury were more personable, whereas Paul's were not. He should have addressed the jury individually. Maybe then he could have received that one $500,000 vote.

3. Bullying The Houseguests

According to Julie Chen and many of the viewers, this season was known for the bullying. Paul had a huge hand in that, especially since he had so much influence over the houseguests. Paul only needed one more vote to secure the $500,000, and that that vote ended up being Cody's. It's no secret that Paul and Cody were enemies in the game, but Cody saw right through Paul's game and saw how much influence he had over the houseguests. Cody knew Paul was in everyone's ear during the whole season, and especially the week that he and Jessica were antagonized by the other houseguests. That could have cost Paul the vote.

Yes, Paul may have lost to a "bitter" jury. But he made the same mistake two years in a row, and that was by his horrible jury management. Jury management is the most important way to win this game. He did it last season with Natalie and Da'Vonne, two votes that he could have easily gotten had he treated them better on the way out. And in this season, it was with Alex and Cody. Paul may need to evaluate and put some blame on himself for not winning this season, but we cannot deny the fact that he did play a great game. But unfortunately for him it was not enough to win the game. Sorry, Paul, better luck next time!
