The Traitors fans brand Paul the new 'Nasty Nick' and say he 'deserves an Oscar' for turning on the 'crocodile tears' as his plan to double bluff Faithfuls backfires SuperNayr

Paul has been branded the new ‘Nasty Nick’ of reality TV as he found himself in the firing line on Thursday’s episode of The Traitors. 

Viewer took to X, formerly Twitter, hailing him the ultimate villain as they saw him ‘turn on the crocodile tears’ as he realised his plan to double bluff the Faithfuls could backfire. 

After Ash’s banishment, Megs or Paul was at risk of being murdered by the Traitors after they were the remaining contestants who had been condemned in the dungeons. 

The 36-year-old was applauded by fans who said he ‘deserved an Oscar’ as he burst into tears and had to be comforted by Jonny over claims he was missing his family. 

But Paul confessed the real reason behind his tears was because his plan to double bluff the Faithfuls by placing himself in the dungeon had backfired.

He said: ‘I’ve had a very emotional day over the family and stuff but to be honest that was genuine emotion just reshaped in a different way that I knew I would benefit from it’. 

Contestants were stunned when Paul returned to the breakfast table, instead of Faithful Meg, who they believed was a Traitor. 

Viewers wrote: ‘I’m very conflicted. I’d love Paul to go, but he also makes for quality telly. He’s the new nasty Nick.’

‘My emotions were genuine, they were just reshaped in a different way” I think that’s called being manipulative Paul’. 

‘Please give me Paul’s downfall now’ and ‘Paul with the fake tears. Someone give that man an Oscar.’ 

Paul said: ‘Being a Traitor is testing. It’s really tough. It’s probably the hardest thing I’ve done actually. They might not like the way I go about things but I hope people see this is literally the levels you have to go to.’ 

Viewers believe Paul could replace Big Brother ‘Nasty Nick’ Bateman, who became known for playing his fellow housemates off of one another.

Paul said of Ash’s elimination. He said: ‘The dungeon, Ash was terrible down there. 

‘The team is only strong as its weakest link. If you are not performing on a football pitch or work, you go and she needed to go. 

‘I want us to hide now.’ 

Harry warned Paul: ‘It could bring heat to you.’

It comes after the BBC scored a win with The Traitors on Wednesday night as it became the most watched episode ever. 

3.8million viewers tuned in to watch the Traitors turn on Ash, 45, who was ‘completely blindsided’ when Harry and Paul voted her out. 

Ratings from Super TV revealed the 4th episode was up 1.5 million viewers from series one and had a 25% share. 

The fourth episode was also an increase from The Traitors’ series two launch which pulled in an impressive 3.1million viewers. 

It was a significant increase on the numbers watching last year’s opening episode, which hit 2.9million viewers. 

The Traitors continues on BBC One on Friday at 9pm.
