If you're a Feeder, then you may've have already seen some flirty moments between Zakiyah and Paulie. However, there's been one somewhat intimate interaction between the two hot Houseguests that raised eyebrows—but not for the reasons you'd expect.

In this PG-rated clip, watch what happened when Zakiyah and Paulie participated in what felt like one of the longest single hugs in recent Big Brother history. 

"Don't let go," said Zakiyah to this week's HOH and the line worked because, well, Paulie didn't.

Plus, as if this moment wasn't weird enough, the pair clung together in front of an audience; while cradling each other for nearly 90 seconds, James sat at the kitchen table as a solo spectator.

Can you spell "awkward?"
