BB18: Live Feeds into Friday Morning - July 29

Number one on the real short list

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Addled Adolescents:
  • If you missed my last update, Paul is the new HoH.
  • As for the Have Nots -- Natalie, Corey, Zakiyah and Paulie.
  • In addition to slop, they have hot dogs, bacon and capers. If you had to be a Have Not, it sounds like a good week with the extras!
  • Mmm. Bacon.
  • Paul had stated previously to the Get Da'Vonne Out Crowd that, if they want her out, he can't win HoH. because he had vowed to get rid of Bridgette. 
  • It's apparent he wants to stick to his word.
  • Da'Vonne tried to plant her seeds about Nicole and Corey needing to go.
  • Some of them were pondering if there will be another returnee situation if the Round Trip ticket isn't used. Huh. I didn't think of that. BB must have plans in case it's used/not used.
  • Paul asked Victor if he would go up as a pawn with Bridgette being the target.
  • "No! Nononononono! Please, no!" was his response.
  • He's worried, with good cause, that since he came back in the game, he might be voted out.
  • Meanwhile, Paulie and Corey are scheming. They want to get Paul to nominated Da'Vonne as the "pawn." Then, in grand style, they flip the vote and evict Da'Vonne.
  • Paul's goal in pawn is someone who can win comps.
  • That's not necessarily Da'Vonne. She could win a backstabbing contest. But I doubt the HoH will be that.
  • Paulie tried to convince Paul that no "boys" should go up on the block because it's too risky.
  • Maybe if they had some MEN in the house ...
  • (But I digress.)
  • When Paulie approached James about his Oust Da'Vonne plan, James was a bit noncommittal -- he just shrugged his shoulders and said he'd go with it if it worked out.
  • Paulie doesn't want Bridgette out yet. Paul does. After all, he gave his word. And word is bond. Or something like that.
  • Paulie tried to talk Paul into putting Da'Vonne on the block with Bridgette.
  • No go.
  • Paul might be a bit more receptive to putting Da'Vonne up as a re-nom if the PoV is used. But that's it.
  • Da'Vonne continues to try to sabotage Nicole.
  • Michelle speaks of returning the target to all of the returnees.
  • Not Victor ... I'm talking the "veterans."
  • Natalie's name has been tossed around as a pawn. Paul doesn't want to do that because she's a Have Not and he wants a very strong competitor.
  • A side note - In the HoH room reveal, the biggest hit seemed to be a photo of a beardless Paul.
  • Back to the story here ...
  • Paul wants someone to volunteer to be a pawn. But they have to be strong enough to beat Bridgette. He's not budging on wanting Bridgette out.
  • The other guys point out that if it's a guy on the block, the girls could team together and get yet another boy out.
  • Nicole is worried that, if she goes up as a pawn, she will be voted out. She's paranoid. Probably with good reason as Da'Vonne keeps pushing the suspicion about Corey and Nicole.
  • She's worried that Paul and Da'Vonne might be working together because Da'Vonne as a pawn doesn't seem to be in any scenario.
  • Nicole thinks Natalie would be the perfect pawn because she's like Victoria -- can't win a comp yet liked by all.
  • Corey told Nicole that Natalie's already been on the block and is a Have Not.
  • "Big Brother isn't about taking turns!" Nicole replied.
  • Paul told Paulie he needs to get Bridgette out this week -- "My Bridgette is your Tiffany."
  • He does seem dead set on her.
  • But, it will all depend on the pawn put up.
  • What if the house decides to go against his wishes and votes out the pawn?
  • What if Bridgette wins PoV and the pawn goes home?
  • The suspense builds.

But I don't want to be a pawn!

Who wants to see my HoH room?

Saved by a vow to get Bridgette out

We need a good pawn

BB18: HoH Comp Updates/HoH Winner - July 28

This post will be updated when the feeds return. We'll either have a winner or they'll still be working on it. I'm having trouble getting into the live feeds. Grr.

I'm finally in. We have the Jeff highlights loop.

10:15pm ET -- Feeds still blocked.

10:30pm ET -- Feeds still on Jeff highlights.

10:45pm ET -- Feeds still on Jeff highlights.

11:00pm ET -- Feeds still on Jeff highlights. I'll continue the 15 minute interval updates unless the feeds come back. Then, of course, I'll post that they've returned and figure out who won HoH to get that posted. This is getting annoying!

11:15pm ET -- Still Jeff and the same highlights loop over and over again.

11:30pm ET -- Still Jeff. I think I'm losing my mind. The very least is they could rotate loops or even show the old trivia they used to use.

11:31pm ET --  Feeds are back.


I have no more words for now.

Well, a few more words -- the Have Nots seem to be Natalie, Corey, Paulie and Zakiyah.

Her face says it all

She's already working the Nicole/Corey seeds

Let's get this party started!

Recap, recap ...

Tonight, Frank and Bridgette will be torn apart ... or will they? (Referring to the secret room.)

Michelle is fussing about Bridgette. Whining. Poor baby. Frank advises Bridgette to win HoH. Bridgette tells us she doesn't have many friends in real life and Frank is her friend. Michelle tells Frank that if she used the veto on him, nine people would be mad at her. She bursts into tears.

James notices clues on the screen in the living room, "clues are all around you." Paul picks up on green words on certain signs in the rooms. He links it to flight 211 on the departure board. He calls Paris on one of the two phones. In the booth, he is told to go into a tunnel now or leave the booth and try when the coast is clear. Since there's a crowd, he runs out. He warns James and Corey to keep Frank and Bridgette away from the phone booth. Paul goes into a red tunnel. He gets a clue that there are 12 envelopes, one containing a round trip ticket to return into the game if evicted. They must remain sealed and cannot be exchanged with other hamsters. All of them end up with an envelope.

A segment on past partners in the game. Jason Roy thinks Da'Vonne needs to cool down a bit. Meg talks about James. She thinks James needs to watch out for Da'Vonne. Hayden talks about Nicole. They dated for about a year and a half, still friends. Boogie talks about Frank. He thinks Frank is playing a horrible game, shouldn't have told people about winning Road Kill.

Uh-oh. Julie tells us that we at home can have a major impact on the game. Hmm ... maybe we'll be allowed to duct tape Paul's mouth shut!

To the living room ...
Julie explains the tickets. August 18 is the expiration date on them.
Frank -- Family, love ya. Bridgette, class act, favorite people. The opposite applies to the others, sorry not sorry, never want to see you.
Bridgette -- All goodness and light speech.

The votes to evict:
Da'Vonne -- Frank
Paul -- Frank
Paulie -- Frank
Nicole -- Frank
Victor -- Frank
Michelle -- Frank
Zakiyah -- Frank
Corey -- Frank
Natalie -- Frank

Unanimous ... Frank is voted out.

His envelope contents will be revealed to the entire house (and us) after commercials.

Inside the envelope is a ... one way ticket home!

HoH - Perfect Shot. Red ball and yellow ball, roll red ball up the creek into the box. Can practice with yellow ball. The ball might fall off into a numbered box. If no one gets a perfect shot, the highest score wins. If the red ball goes out of play, player out. Four lowest scores are Have Nots.

They're practicing. This is going to go over the showtime. I'll set up a separate post to update and announce HoH.

America's Care Package -- Can send one hamster a care package with an advantage, first one has a Never Have Not pass. Each hamster can only win once.

BB18: Live Feeds into Thursday - July 28

Nah, no one's back there. Y'think?

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Worrisome Worrywarts:
  • Even though Frank will be leaving tonight (unless he comes back). everybody is paranoid that he's not.
  • Da'Vonne keeps planting seeds that Nicole and Corey can't be trusted.
  • Paulie's "leadership" is in doubt.
  • James and Da'Vonne are worried that Paulie will vote to keep Frank and oust Bridgette and the house will flip last minute.
  • Paul grows more obnoxious by the day. For a well-educated guy, he's turned into a foul-mouthed little bully with nothing to back it up.
  • Zakiyah thinks that Nicole is flirting with Paulie and doesn't like it.
  • Remember, a week or two ago, Zakiyah thought Michelle was flirting with Paulie and didn't like it.
  • All the jealousy without reason is wearing thin on Paulie.
  • Natalie told James that she can't trust Nicole because something she said in confidentially to her got back to Bridgette.
  • But, then again, Natalie has always been closer to Bridgette than she has been to Nicole. She'd rather Bridgette be in the house longer than Nicole.
  • Da'Vonne told Paulie that Nicole is saying she (Da'Vonne) is throwing her (Nicole) under the bus.
  • Well, duh. She is and has been!
  • Da'Vonne is paranoid because she heard Corey said more attention should be on her rather than him and Nicole.
  • Paulie told Da'Vonne that is being said only because it was brought up if Bridgette wins HoH, she'd nominate Nicole and Corey.
  • Meanwhile, Nicole is whispering stuff about Da'Vonne to Paul.
  • And, on it goes.
  • Paranoia the destroyah!
  • The house seems to be one pitted against the other throughout, yet it's fairly certain it will be unanimous or close to it for Frank to go home tonight.

Spending the last of their time together.

She's safe. For now.

Da'Vonne continues to plant seeds to him

What? Someone is behind the mirror?

BB18: Live Feeds into Wednesday Evening - July 27

No pranks from him lately

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Babbling Buffoons:
  • Once again, there was a whole lotta napping going on today.
  • Natalie cleaned the toilet stall room. She keeps complaining about how disgusting it gets and no one cleans it.
  • She ended up going wild through the whole bathroom on a cleaning spree.
  • Yep, we're paying to watch this!
  • She told James that she would remain loyal to him and that Frank has been trashmouthing Bridgette to her.
  • Of course, we all need to keep in mind that she's friends with Bridgette and Frank is an obstacle to the friendship.
  • I haven't really seen Frank actually talking trash about Bridgette at all. I might have missed it. 
  • Natalie also told James she would expect him to campaign to stay if they were both on the block.
  • Aw, ain't that so sweet!
  • James doesn't think they'll be on the block for a while. He thinks there are bigger targets in the house for the others -- Nicole and Corey, Paulie and Zakiyah.
  • Natalie told him she think Nicole is playing dirty.
  • Yeah, she is. But she's also playing pretty dumb.
  • James has been having problems with his arm being numb and tingling since the HoH comp. Apparently BB has called a doctor for it.
  • I couldn't have held my arm up for six hours without it falling off.
  • Victor cooked up some expired by two days turkey.
  • They must get the stuff at the same dollar store where they purchase the arts and crafts things.
  • Da'Vonne told James about Nicole's betrayal by making final two/four plans with Frank plus Bridgette and Corey.
  • He didn't get excited, said he already knew all about it. 
  • Da'Vonne also told Paulie that Nicole and Corey were working with Frank and Bridgette.
  • Unlike James's reaction, now Paulie is more on board with Da'Vonne going home sooner rather than later.
  • He, of course, brings Paul into it. Paul, of course, backs him up and says, "Yeah, Da'Vonne must go!"
  • Corey told Paulie he wanted to call Da'Vonne out on it.
  • But Paulie isn't quite as anxious.
  • (You'd think that Corey would know that they were working with Frank and Bridgette and it's the truth! Silly boy.)
  • Paulie thinks that if Bridgette wins HoH, she'll nominated Nicole/Corey. That's why he thinks she needs to go before Da'Vonne.
  • Frank told Nicole he's fully expecting to go tomorrow night. He told her not to take anything in his speech personally -- it's not about her.
  • Paul and Zakiyah talked about Nicole playing all sides of the house.
  • He said that if he gets HoH, he just might put Nicole and Bridgette on the block.
  • Paul also talked to James and Da'Vonne about how suspicious both Nicole and Corey were acting.
  • Corey wonders why their names keep getting thrown around.
  • Paul told Da'Vonne she needs to win HoH tomorrow and get Nicole out. He can't win because he promised to get Bridgette out.
  • ::: cue organ music here :::

Da'Vonne tells James dirt on Nicole

How she's playing this season

Oh noes! It's the Vulcan mind meld!

No, he's not crying. I'd pay to see that!

But it's an honor to be voted out, Frank.

BB18: Power of Veto Show Blog Party - July 27

Hamster watchers ready? Let's get this show going! 

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be constantly updating this entry. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party is in the comments area!

Oh! A recap to start out the show! How exciting! Heh. 

Okay, we pick up after the nominations ceremony. Frank knows James went with the house, but claims James has no backbone. Bridgette is upset because James lied to her. Bridgette cries. She says "freaking" a lot in the Diary Room. She usually uses another F word all the time on the feeds,

Zakiyah, Paul, Nicole and Da'Vonne dance in the storage room.

Frank goes to James and tells him he expected to go on the block, but feels bad about Bridgette. James tells him that his name is in with every fight in the house. Frank claims all kinds of goodness and light. He points towards Da'Vonne. 

Time to pick PoV players! Back to the old method post-Road Kill. They each pull a chip. James gets Michelle. Bridgette picks Da'Vonne. Frank gets Nicole. 

Time for the veto comp. Natalie is hosting -- it's a big festival with water slides, laser beams an OTEV frog. 

James tells us he's throwing the comp so he doesn't get any more blood on his hands. Sure enough, he's out first. Da'Vonne is out next -- she didn't throw it, just couldn't find the right disc. Nicole goes out next. Frank is out. Bridgette doesn't make it.

Michelle wins the Golden Power of Veto!

After the clean-up, Frank goes to Michelle. He tells her the fans like big moves, house flips, veto used. She's not acting receptive. She tells him if he throws Bridgette under the bus, she'll use it. He won't do it. He tells her that Bridgette is the most loyal persona in the house. She likes him and had wanted to work with him. She tells him it's the house. He says flip it.

The rest all invade the room to break up the talk. 

Paul confronts Frank.  

James calls a house meeting. It includes the nominees. Paul starts leading the talk. Frank says he wants it used and Da'Vonne go up. Da'Vonne says it won't be used.  Paulie tells Frank the numbers aren't on his side and stop looking like an idiot. Frank thanks Da'Vonne and Paulie for having a backbone and leaves the room.

Bridgette tries to connect with Michelle. She feels attacked by Michelle. Michelle tells her roughly that she (Bridgette) stole Frank from her.  

Veto meeting time! She gives them a chance to make a plea.
Bridgette - Nice, respect, do best for your game.
Frank - Why waste my breath?

Michelle does not use the Power of Veto. Bridgette and Frank remain on the block.

BB18: Live Feeds into Wednesday Morning - July 27

Just messin' with nails while worlds collide

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of A'lying Alliances:
  • The most interesting developments of the night came in the morning here on the East Coast.
  • Y'see, Frank has been playing the "dead man walking" card with Bridgette, telling her that he's not campaigning to stay, knows he's targeted and all.
  • Yet, he has been talking to people trying to scramble to stay.
  • Well, Da'Vonne and Zakiyah told Bridgette some of the reasons they want him gone, including the butt-slapping incidents.
  • It turns out that Bridgette had no clue exactly what that was all about, nor how angry people were about it.
  • Frank had told her people were just trying to make him look bad.
  • And she believed him.
  • Just as she believed that he would never campaign to stay at her expense.
  • She feels betrayed and hurt by him.
  • That's just what they want.
  • Paul had an extended talk with Frank, telling him that he (Frank) belittles him and makes people feel uncomfortable.
  • Frank denied all and said that he never said Bridgette was ready to go home.
  • Practically everybody (except Michelle, who's scared) has visited poor little Bridgette to offer her support.
  • It looks like the latest has sealed the deal -- Frank might be going unanimously tomorrow night.
  • As I type this up, Paulie is talking to Frank. He told him that everybody is hovering around Bridgette and she feels he (Frank) has been campaigning against her.
  • He calls Frank a "legend" and "my bro." 
  • Frank keeps telling him that he's not worried about it. The Bridgette being upset at him? His going home? What's IT, Frank?
  • Now that I think of it, Paulie hasn't really been involved in the consoling Bridgette times. He came in, listened for a bit and left.
  • Paulie has been adamant all along about not liking Bridgette.
  • Huh.
  • Maybe there will be one vote for Frank to stay.
  • Then again, he could be blowing smoke.
  • Too bad Frank doesn't have mist or he could stay in the game.
  • Frank says the Diary Room makes him feel like ____ because he hasn't been trying for votes.
  • The saga goes on ...
Paulie needs to keep that bandana on.

Frank's been lying to me?!?!?!

You belittle me, Frank. (Someone has to.)

I'm waiting for them to turn on each other

A happy Day ... for now

BB18: Live Feeds into Tuesday Evening - July 26

But can he win a comp not thrown to him?

Here's the latest from that Big Brother House of Melancholy Mice:
  • After the rush of excitement with the clues, secret room and envelopes, today was the calm after the storm.
  • Sure, none of them trust each other.
  • Sure, some of them even strongly dislike each other.
  • But, it generally wasn't a day for kerfuffles.
  • Da'Vonne tried to pump Michelle wondering if there's been any talk of flipping the vote.
  • "The vote" would be the plan to evict Frank.
  • They all sat around talking about each other, most of it in the negative.
  • James got his HoH digital camera. You know the next line ...
  • ... And fun was had by all.
  • Although Victor has been playing a bit better by laying low, he's irking them all with his eating habits. The ice cream is almost gone. He made like five pizzas one day. And, the dude just eats too much and cooks too much.
  • Paul the Recruit who watched a part of one season before going in the house, thinks Natalie has no clue about the game and contributes nothing to the house. He wants her out.
  • @@
  • Paul thinks Victor is dumb for sharing the code to get in the room with Nicole and others.
  • Paul thinks he's the greatest thing to ever grace us with his presence.
  • Just ask him. As a matter of fact, he'd be willing to share that information without being asked!
  • Zakiyah told Nicole that Da'Vonne's been opening up to her a bit more, but she still doesn't really trust her. (They had a falling out last week or so.)
  • They explored more around the secret room, but the envelopes were the only treasure to be found.
  • BB wised up and blocked the code from working so they can't hang out in there.
  • That's about it for now. Lots of small non-game talk or repeated already fantasized dreams of HoH and who needs to go home.

Frank hasn't given shout-outs to his girl lately

Not being a Zany Zakiyah

What is with the fake eyeglasses every season?

BB18: Live Feeds into Tuesday Morning - July 26

I did have hopes for her ... no more

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Lackadaisical Louts:
  • As I mentioned in my last update -- Michelle did not use the veto and they all (I think) have envelopes from the secret room. ONE of the envelopes contain a RETURN TRIP TICKET which will allow the bearer immediately back in the house if evicted. They aren't allowed to open the envelopes until evicted. Paul was the first one to figure out the clues.
  • Bridgette can't convince Michelle that she didn't say something about shaving her eyebrows off while she slept. She can't convince her because she can't convince herself. She thinks it's possible she said it.
  • So, Bridgette thinks all the girls bully her.
  • Nicole's playing both sides is catching up to her between Da'Vonne and Frank planting seeds that she can't be trusted.
  • She continues to cling onto Corey like he's some sort of lifeline. 
  • The latest is that she's all upset that Corey didn't give her the code to get into the secret room and she had to figure it out for herself. (Actually, Victor helped her.)
  • @@
  • Why oh why did she get involved in a showmance?
  • You can tell that Corey does care for her as a person. But there's nothing really much more to it. It won't last a week outside the house.
  • The conspiracy theorists will have their day until Thursday ... beyond if Frank has the return trip ticket. Even Paulie is theorizing that BB will swap envelopes with Frank so he stays.
  • Bridgette cried.
  • Michelle cried.
  • Oh, save your drama for your Mama, sunshines!
  • Well, maybe not your Mama Day. She would easily turn it around to use it against you.
  • Speaking of Da'Vonne, Paulie is a bit worried that things he's said to her will be used against him.
  • Michelle cried and cried. And cried. Bridgette won't accept her apology. She really likes Frank and has done him wrong. She's being portrayed badly. And on and on.
  • Poor Michelle. She's the superfan who should have known what she's getting into, right?
  • By being the first to figure out the code to the room, Paul now thinks he's even more all that and a bag of chips. His ego diminishes his beard.
  • Zakiyah thinks that Nicole is becoming more distant with her, as is Paulie. She tells Da'Vonne this. Hmm.
  • There are all kinds of bad feelings due to the room. Many were asleep when the clue came over the screen about it. They're mad because the ones seeing it didn't wake them up. Others are mad because people wouldn't just give them the code.
  • @@
  • Michelle thinks that Victor is one who wants to be in control. It seems to me many of them want to be in control -- Frank, Paulie, Paul, Da'Vonne.
  • Nicole and Corey made up. For now.
  • Bridgette and Michelle, not so much.
  • It does look like it will still be Frank walking out the door Thursday.
  • But ... as Stephen King said, sometimes they come back.
  • Heh, heh.

Are the eyebrows still there? Peek, peek.

Likes to be in charge

Still a target, but playing much wiser

Apparently, I'm an a______. Well, yeah!

BB18: Live Feeds into Monday Evening - July 25

How I feel right about now

Here's the latest from inside the Big Brother House of Crashing Cards:
  • Michelle and Bridgette talks, ostensibly to smooth things out.
  • That didn't go so well.
  • It became heated words about how Bridgette was scared of Tiffany, how Michelle leaves the room when Bridgette enters and ... Eyebrow-Gate.
  • I never really caught the start of that on the feeds. Either Bridgette or Tiffany said they were going to shave Michelle's eyebrows while she was sleeping.
  • Michelle says it was Bridgette.
  • Bridgette says it was Tiffany.
  • It kept going on to the point where Bridgette started yelling, "Why do you hate me, Michelle?!?!?!"
  • @@
  • Bridgette told Michelle "everybody" was talking about her (Michelle's) appearance.
  • Things were no better between them, probably a bit worse, by the time the kerfuffle frizzled out.
  • With Bridgette going off a bit, Natalie is worried that she might say things about her.
  • Then Da'Vonne had to get all caught up in it, telling things Bridgette has said.
  • Gah. 
  • When the feeds returned after the veto ceremony, there were no surprises.
  • Michelle did NOT use the veto. Frank and Bridgette remain on the block.
  • Frank is sure he's the one who will be voted out.
  • He told Bridgette, if she wins HoH, nominate Nicole and James.
  • What? No Da'Vonne who has been his target for a few weeks now?
  • Nope. They made up.
  • Now Da'Vonne is on the Oust Nicole Train with Frank, bad-mouthing Nicole.
  • Though, they're right -- she's been playing both sides of the house. And, she's a bad liar and can't cover her tracks well.
  • James told Paulie that Bridgette (it came from Frank originally) said Nicole is "flip-floppy." Paulie thinks that originally came from Da'Vonne.
  • James warns the Pauls (Paul and Paulie) to watch their backs around Da'Vonne.
  • Everybody needs to watch their back around Da'Vonne, I say!
  • Since these hamsters aren't smart enough to really examine all the travel stuff, BB had to make an announcement on the video screen that clues are all around them.
  • Yeah, that's for the secret room.
  • Paul figured out the clues first.
  • It has to do with dialing numbers on the phones, getting a message and going through a red tunnel to a room.
  • Once there, he got a card. It tells him that there are 12 envelopes, more than one person can enter the room. In ONE envelope, there's a special prize.
  • It's a RETURN TRIP TICKET. If voted out, he/she can come right back in!
  • The envelope holders cannot open their envelopes until evicted.
  • It took a while, but I think everybody got one.
  • Da'Vonne commented, "Figures. The week Frank is set to go home."
  • Let the conspiracy theorists start in now.
  • We won't know until we know. If memory serves, the envelopes are only good for the next four evictions.
"You can't trust Nicole."

Yard time

James warns Pauls to watch their backs

Hard to tell where beard ends, tattoo begins

BB18: Live Feeds into Monday Morning - July 25


Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap:
  • They made up for sleeping all day Sunday by being awake all night!
  • Frank kept campaigning for the veto to be used, Da'Vonne to go up and out in either his or Bridgette's place on the block.
  • His bubble got crushed, though.
  • And, Paul did it. 
  • The feeds were actually interesting, for the first time in days!
  • It was same old, same old ... until Paul.
  • What did the bearded boy do?
  • Well, he called a house meeting which had almost everybody in attendance.
  • He claimed that he can't understand why people can't just be honest and let Frank know that the veto won't be used and Frank will be the one going home this week.
  • A hush fell over the crowd.
  • First, Da'Vonne spoke up to Frank.
  • They talked back and forth and ... guess what? They're not really enemies.
  • Finally, Paulie chimed in and agreed with what Paul said about Frank going home this week.
  • Frank now understands there is no point in trying to campaign and get folks on the Oust Da'Vonne Train this week and thus driving himself crazy.
  • He's bummed.
  • Bridgette cries.
  • This will mean that she's going to be in jury with all those MEAN girls!
  • Before the meeting, she was trying to campaign for the Oust Da'Vonne Train.
  • Later, Frank told Zakiyah that he hopes Da'Vonne believes what he told her about Nicole during the HoH comp.
  • He says he had his only final two deal with Nicole, but now he knows she's a snake.
  • Zakiyah is pretty much playing dumb to all of this as if she had no part in any conversations with anyone whatsoever.
  • Bridgette, in addition to using the F word every other word, is also into the uneducated "you know what I'm sayin", "you know what I mean" phrases in between the cussing. Does she have some kind of street people background we don't know about?
  • It all seems so incongruous coming from the Cabbage Patch Kid. (Gosh, I wish I had come up with that descriptor for her!)
  • Oh, they did get the yard back.
  • Paul claims that he was tired of watching both Frank and Da'Vonne getting hurt and going through such hassles when it could all be laid out on the table. 
  • In a way, he's right.
  • But, that said, I don't think Frank is just going to sit and take it.
  • He's already bad-mouthing Nicole.
  • As I type this, a group is in the storage room -- Michelle, Paulie, Paul and Zakiyah -- and Zakiyah is making Paulie's weird haircut weirder by parting the fluff in the middle and putting pins to hold it. Ew. I can't bring myself to screen cap it.
  • That's it for now!


Oh my. What have I done?

No one would vote me out ... this week

You know what I'm sayin', you know what I mean?

So far, much better in the game

I called this meeting!

BB18: Live Feeds into Sunday Evening - July 24

Quad cam - 1pm their time

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Wicked Ways:
  • Gah, they slept most of the day!
  • BB TRIED to wake them up early.
  • Some had stayed up, made breakfast, ate and then it was back to bed.
  • Bridgette claims she'd rather go home than be stuck in jury with the girls.
  • Da'Vonne has been trying to get closer to Michelle than she has been all summer so far.
  • BB once again, around 1:30pm their time, tried to get them all up and moving.
  • They're still on indoor lockdown as the yard is put back to normal.
  • Well, as normal as anything in that house can be!
  • Nicole warned James that Frank wants him to have Michelle use the veto and put Da'Vonne on the block.
  • Well, duh.
  • I think he realizes that.
  • Nicole told Michelle that Frank told her that he had talked to her (Michelle) and she would use the veto.
  • Michelle denies it ... vehemently.
  • Frank told James that everybody is down with voting out Da'Vonne.
  • James remains noncommittal -- he'll go with whatever the house wants.
  • Now, of course, that also means he's down with everybody wanting Frank or Bridgette out.
  • Obviously, he doesn't hold the veto, nor does he have a vote. He's done his part. He put them on the block. It's up to them now.
  • James told Da'Vonne once again that he won't put her on the block.
  • Bridgette continues to think the girls are bullying her.
  • Zakiyah tried to tell her otherwise.
  • It's actually kind of hard to bully someone who either avoids them or exiles herself with Frank.
  • As of right now, it doesn't look like Michelle will use the veto.
  • But, it's going back and forth which one goes between Bridgette and Frank.
  • It's leaning towards Frank, but it could go either way.

Quad cam - 3pm their time

I'm tired of Frank!

Talks way too much

At least Corey's hair is quasi-normal

Frank isn't always frank about things.
