Twinsies! Paulie Calafiore and Paul Abrahamian are best buds in the Big Brother house — or are they? Da’Vonne Rogers, who is the latest contestant to get evicted, thinks that one of the players is taking advantage of their friendship.

“Paulie and Paul’s bromance is a hot mess,” Rogers, 28, exclusively tells Us Weekly. “I knew it was strategy when Paulie cut his hair, I knew it was strategy when Paulie started taking on Paul’s language and basically just acting like Paul.”

“I think Paulie is going to use Paul to do all of his dirty work so his hands are clean,” she adds. “Honestly, the only blood Paulie has on his hands right now is Tiffany’s, and she is gone.”

Paulie, 27, and Paul, 23, haven’t just aligned together — they’re starting to look like each other. DJ Paulie shaved the sides of his head like Paul, started to dress like him (those sleeveless zip-ups!) and sometimes uses Paul’s “Your boy!” and “friendship” one-liners. Paul even joked about the similarities during a recent episode.

“When other people used Paul’s friendship line, yes, it got annoying,” Rogers says. “I think Paul knows it has the potential to be very annoying, so he uses it at the right time.”
