"Big Brother 19" fans have witnessed some crazy deals negotiated this summer. Early on it seemed that Paul and Kevin were going to be unlikely allies with a Final Two deal. Now that the game is nearing the end, do the two see an advantage to re-establishing that connection?

The following will contain "Big Brother 19" spoilers. If you don't want to know what may make the editorial cut, stop reading now.

Kevin is a fan-favorite in the "Big Brother 19" house. He won viewers over with his fatherly advice to some of the houseguests and his words of wisdom from his life experiences. He has shared stories of growing up on the streets of Boston and becoming a father of seven.

His personality was a perfect fit with the young houseguests who were there to compete for the $500,000 prize.

Early alliance formed

Paul, being a returning player, and Kevin formed a bond early on. Kevin's social game made people open up to him. Paul was trying to develop connections and relied on Kevin for some inside info. Then somewhere along the way, Paul tossed Kevin aside. He has been alone, literally, in "Big Brother 19" every since.

With Kevin on the block and Paul holding the Power of Veto [VIDEO], the two had a conversation this morning. Kevin asked Paul not to use the POV and let Alex be evicted. He feels safe because Paul told him he has his back. As the two were parting, Kevin mentioned something that apparently had been worked out before. He told Paul he is good with $150,000 after they take the top two spots.

That is what they had estimated to be the after tax amount of the $550,000 for the winners. They had agreed to split it.

A big no-no in the "Big Brother" house is side deals that involve payment. One houseguest cannot offer money to another. In past seasons, "Big Brother" has called out the players and even gone so far as to warn houseguests. Nothing was said by production this time.

Paul has many plans with others

Paul has no intention of using the Power of Veto. Alex is fully expecting him to save her because they have a Final Two deal. When she is evicted, he plans on laying the blame [VIDEO] squarely on Josh's shoulders. Paul has a Final Two with Josh as well but plans to evict him next week, making the Final Three Kevin, Christmas, and Paul.

Josh has been talking to the cameras a lot lately. He knows that Paul is working him and everyone else. So far, he hasn't talked to Kevin about what he has figured out. Do you think Kevin would join Josh in trying to flip the house and get Paul out? Is it just too late in the "Big Brother 19" game and Paul is in it for the win?
