Big Brother 18: Season Premiere Blog Party



Yes, it's a sure sign that summer is here! Tonight is the season premiere of Big Brother 18. We've checked out the new hamsters and we're ready for this! I am expecting four returning hamsters, as well. But, since they've kept them (and exactly their roles in the game) under wraps, only the new hamsters were included in the blog pool.

Tonight's show is two hours. The season premiere continues with another episode (eviction? who really knows?) tomorrow at 9pm ET/PT. The live feeds don't get turned on until after tomorrow's show airs on the West Coast. So, we're talking 1am here in the good ol' East Coast time zone!

Here are the random picks for the blog pool as we head into this:
Tiffany Rousso - meb, SueGee, David, Jessica UNderwood
Natalie Negrotti - Sharon N, Jackie P, QuixoticElf, Orkmommy
Jozea Flores - Sasha, Merrilee, Tammy, Petals, JonMD1267
Bridgette Dunning - Brian, Indiana Jane, Caela, Chauncey, Paula Bell
Paulie Calafiore - Joel, Chacha, Sally, Ed In Ohio, Buzzmaam
Glenn Garcia - Sharon C, uncartie, Dennis Comfort, Delee, Donna in Alabama
Bronte D'Acquisto - Jean in Tampa, elee86, Russ, Cheryl, Donna in FL
Zakiyah Everette - Tilde, Jo C, Jenng326, Ayana, jennifer
Corey Brooks - Fred aka TwoBlackAces, Barbara B. W., Dierdre, Cheryl in NC
Paul Abrahamian - Jackie, Arf Barf, WolfpackRed, chrob61
Victor Arroyo - Helenann2K, RBennie, Janice, Monty924
Michelle Meyer - Rich, Chase, Glenn, Anonymouse

As the show airs, I'll be live updating the happenings right here -- refresh the page to get the latest! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Come watch and talk about the show with us! And, but of course ... bring snacks and tasty beverages.

From inside the empty house, Julie Chen warns us to fasten our seatbelts as it will be a bumpy ride. One hamster will go home tomorrow night. There are four stowaways secretly tucked away in the house. New comps.

Into cast promo clips as they find their keys.

Finally, all the intros done and the hamsters are on stage in front of the house. The craziest summer vacation ever. Natalie, Victor, Michelle and Paul go in first. Next is Bronte, Zakiyah, Glenn and Paulie. Last are Corey, Bridgette, Jozea and Tiffany.

Champagne all around as they introduce themselves to each other. Let the lies begin. It seems the Victor is smitten with Natalie, but Natalie is smitten with Corey. They catch on that there's only twelve of them and think they can expect the unexpected.

Julie promises them twists. She tells them they're not alone -- there are four stowaways in the house since they first moved in. They haven't seen them, but will compete for the half-million dollar prize.

The first one to pop out is Nicole from BB16. Then James from BB17 comes out of a trunk. I'll enjoy watching him! Next is Da'Vonne also from BB17! Last to pop out is Frank Eudy from BB14. (Thankfully, not FrankIE. I couldn't take that again!) He cut his hair and doesn't even look like himself.

Already the new hamsters want the return hamsters out. The returnees feel the pressure. Jozea, Paul and Zakiyah seem to be forming an early alliance.

Paulie confesses that he's Cody's brother. Paul seems right through it with the timing. Now, will Tiffany reveal? Not yet. But Da'Vonne is onto her.

Uh-oh. Julie tells them this summer they will play in teams of four that they will pick for themselves. The first comp of the summer is about to start.

The backyard has four huge rockets and an aerial feel about it. The teams, each former player will be on a different team and they get first pick. Opposite sex, next player picks the next player.

Not really in this order:
James - Natalie, Victor, Bronte
Nicole - Corey, Tiffany, Glenn
Frank - Michelle, Paulie, Bridgette
Da'Vonne - Paul, Zakiyah, Jozea

At stake -- cash, punishment and safety. "Ride the Rocket" -- if all four fall off, eliminated. First team out, Have Nots. Second, Mystery Land with a mystery punishment. Third team, Cash City - ten grand to be split between them. Winning team, Safetyville -- safe from the next two evictions.

The rockets are only moving slightly when a storm moves in.

Tiffany falls off first, then Glenn. Nicole isn't too happy. Then she falls off. It's only Corey left on that team on the rocket.

Michelle, Bridgette and Frank go down. So it's just Paulie there for that team.

Zakiyah and Da'Vonne both go down. Paul down. Jozea is down. Their team are Have Nots.

James is down. Natalie is down. The birds go on them. Bronte is down. Paulie is out and his team is in Mystery Land. Corey is down.

Victor, James, Natalie and Bronte are safe!

Julie bids them adieu and reminds them that one will be leaving the game. The newbies are still conspiring against the returning hamsters. Da'Vonne tries to work her way in with her team and the "vets."

The winning team wants to come up with a name. Paulie's team calls themselves Category Four like the storm. Glenn, etc. are Freakazoids. Paul and those folks are Big Sister. Victor's team settles on Team Unicorn.

Tiffany (and Petals) think that Michelle is Nicole's sister. Michelle confronts Tiffany and asks if she's Vanessa's sister. Tiffany admits it to her. They pinky swear that Michelle won't tell.

Julie appears, calls them to the living room and has them sit by team. Team Unicorn won't compete in the next comp -- Hit the Road, three rounds. Only one team will be vulnerable, then they compete individually against each other.

The backyard is done up like a beach. Round up -- build a fifteen piece pyramid sand castle. It's a bit complicated; reminding me of a Survivor challenge.

Category Four is SAFE. Lots of friction between Paul and Da'Vonne. On the other hand, Corey wants to work with Nicole. Da'Vonne is already all emotional. Sigh.

Round Two has them working together (the teams) must build a sandcastle puzzle -- there are decoy pieces that won't fit and only one solution.

Team Big Sister is safe.

Tomorrow night will show the third round tomorrow with Nicole, Corey, Tiffany and Glenn competing against each other.

JonMD1267 said...

I thought she was Velma from Scooby Doo lol

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie, Mouse and Jo. Is it too late to get my name in the pot? WOW! In the time it took to sign up again (with Google) I come back and look and an entire boatload of you are here. So hey, glad you are all here. Jackie thank you for hosting us again.

Petals said...

Uncartie - I'm formulating a snark...gimme a minute.

Oh, Jozea - Frankie, Jr. @@ We need an extra bedroom for his ego!

JonMD1267 said...

You know damn well she knew she was sitting on that key lol

Glenn said...

Hi Jackie and everyone> I am glad I got Michelle. I am excited that I bought the feeds for the first time.

Petals said...

Michelle - Nicole, Part 2. I don't like someone pointing out my BMI.

Anonymouse said...

OMG I want to strangle my pool.pick.

Becky said...

How has your summer gone, Jackie.

uncartie said...

Josea? Shades of Frankie. Grrrr

monty924 said...

Hey Becky!! I know, Petals... really hope he doesn't turn into Frankie Jr. UGH

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, don't think too highly of this girl, Michelle. lol. What isn't she afraid of.

Tiffany sounds just like Vanessa.

Delee said...

Splash, the fun has begun! Thanks for hosting again this year, Jackie!

Petals said...

^5 uncartie

Petals said...

This is BB Latino version (I think we have 3 NON-Latinos?)

Anonymouse said...

It's the sibling edition

monty924 said...

I know everyone loved Cody, but I didn't. Not sure about his brother... it's like looking at his twin.

Nickelpeed said...

Uhmmmm. Some of these guys...wow.

Petals said...

I think that Bronte's voice is fake. No one could live with a voice like that.

David said...

LOL @ anonymouse I am not sure what to think about my pool pick. As long as she is not Vanessa cloned it shouldn't be too bad.

Anonymouse said...

I liked Cody but this guy seems cockier

Petals said...

I have Jozea in the pool, but I will root for others, too.

Sharon S said...

I've been MIA for nearly a year, but am so happy for summer, Big Brother, and the opportunity to hang out here again. Thanks, Jackie, for this special community. Hi, everyone!

JonMD1267 said...

I do love Julie Chen lol but she says that every year lol

uncartie said...

I'm officially in love with Tiffany. Go easy on me haters

Petals said...

hi Sharon! Food is all set-up by the bar...drinks are a'flowin.

I think Michelle is Nicole Franz's sister.

Petals said...

I'm already in love with Victor. Homina Homina

David said...

Hey Uncartie, leave my pool pick alone. No stealing her from me. =)

Anonymouse said...

I was trying to think of her name

Nickelpeed said...

What isn't Michelle afraid of? WOW. That would drive me nuts

monty924 said...

Paul's going to give good DRs

JonMD1267 said...

LOL

SueGee said...

Hi again to the newbies and the oldies!! So glad to see you.

Petals said...

Zak is pretty. Wish she wasn't so showmance-focused.

Nickelpeed said...

I know Petals...Victor is a hunk. LOL

Sharon S said...

Hi Petals!

Petals said...

Zakiyah looks like Gabrielle Union

monty924 said...

Tiffany is not a crier, I'll like her.

uncartie said...

Right now the ants are saying "Wake up..The food is here"

SueGee said...

I have Tiffany in the pool too!!

monty924 said...

She reminds me of BB5s Holly

Cheryl in NC said...

she sounds just like her sisiter

Nickelpeed said...

BRB. My doggies are telling me I forgot to feed them. LOL. I did. Ooops.

My gosh, Tiffany is SO much like her sister. This will be interesting.

JonMD1267 said...

Sweet Baby Ray

Sharon S said...

Bronte....oh boy

Anonymouse said...

At least I want to smack Bronte more than my pool pick

Petals said...

Oh geeminy - Bronte is TRYING TOO HARD.

buh-bye Drama-Queen-Psycho

JonMD1267 said...

She like Tori Spelling

SueGee said...

You would think one of these years they would tackle the ants before they happen!

Delee said...

Okay I have had enough of Bronte already!

Petals said...

Get the net - Bronte is OUT THERE!

Petals said...

Hey Delee!!! xoxo

Ed in Ohio said...

Hi everyone! Hot fun in the summer time!

monty924 said...

Bronte can go first... sorry to whoever has her in the pool

jennifer said...

Nickelpeed, I agree with you about Tiffany!

SueGee said...

I had to go feed the cat so she would stop trying to help me type

Petals said...

*frown* Victor is cheating on me with that little cake-topper.

Corey has a wonk-eye?

jennifer said...

Who are the othe 4???

monty924 said...

Homie... great to see you and congrats on the BIG CAV Championship

Petals said...

lol Sue. Throw down some nip

Becky said...

Victoria made me think of Carlos Montoya in the Princess Bride. Well, except he didn't say "You killed my father,be prepared to die."

Petals said...

Whoohooooo GLENN!!

Ed in Ohio said...

I always wonder why they let them go inside in small groups?

Petals said...

I hate my pool pic. Jozea.

Delee said...

Petals XOXO

JonMD1267 said...

and I solve mysteries with my friends in a van lol

Petals said...

I do not like the liars. Period.

Petals said...

lol Jon

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Monty! The Cavs parade downtown today was awesome!

FaerieGoddess0714 said...

Ok Glenn. We get it. You are from the Bronx. Do you have to preface it with 'boogie down' everytime?!?

Petals said...

wow, "as a mathematician I count 12 people"? Really???? Thanks, Euclid!

Anonymouse said...

To be honest, we only ever like two or three of them.

Cheryl in NC said...

Petals ...I am dying over here already....I almost forgot how freakin funny you!

JonMD1267 said...

the Twist will be she actually is Tori Spelling lol

Petals said...

lol Faerie

Hi Becky!!

SueGee said...

Did someone count the number of beds?

Cheryl said...

Hi everyone, finally, it begins!!! I have Bronte in the pool and right now I'm thinking it's not a good thing, she may go first just so they don't have to hear her voice.

Petals said...

LOL Jon. Bwhahahaha. She talks like she is auditioning for cartoon work. Which she
prolly is: as an aspiring actress!

Becky said...

Who's in charge of the pool? I wanna swim! (sniff, sniff) Maybe they will let me join. Put in a good word for me, guys.

uncartie said...

Congrats on the win Ed.

Petals said...

Hi Cheryl!


Hey - can I get anyone anything to eat? Drink? We have a fully-stocked bar...

Marybeth said...

Hi everyone! Nothing like being here for our summer tradition. That one girl's voice is scaring my cat.

Nickelpeed said...

I missed it, too, Becky. Maybe we can get in to the pool with the 4 mystery players.

Jackie said...

Those people wishing to get into the pool late, please add your names on the sign up post. I'll miss the requests here.

SueGee said...

Maybe we should have a "special" prize for those whose pool pick goes first?? A Booby prize of honor??

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Unc! ^5

JonMD1267 said...

Julie had other plans after the taping she did not dress up for these fools lol

Petals said...

so the 4: Nicole? Frankie? Frank Eudy? Audrey? James Huling?

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you, Jackie!!!

Petals said...

so not coaches???

SueGee said...

A special chat picture of some sort maybe??

monty924 said...

I bet it was Ed. i was proud of the city of Cleveland for how they handled the 50 something year drought.

uncartie said...

You're killing me,Petals. Spot on as usual

Ed in Ohio said...

That voice! Uugh!!

jennifer said...

I had to start the show over! My daughter just got here and said you didn't wait for me!!!

monty924 said...

Nicole.... loved her

Petals said...

I called it.

David said...

Hi Becky. =)

Maybe the people who missed the pool sign-up and the peeps who have the first evicted tomorrow can be drawn again for the 4 unknown hamsters. If you are real nice to Vincent that is. =)

Petals said...

she looks soooooo much like Michelle tho. How will they pull this off?

Anonymouse said...

Rooting forNichole

Sharon S said...

Oh, I liked Nicole...i don't mind her being back.

monty924 said...

YES!!

JonMD1267 said...

JAMES Lol

Petals said...

JAMES!!!!! WHOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! (called it again)

Anonymouse said...

OMG, we are going to like them

Becky said...

I'll take James!

Petals said...

I'm so glad they brought him back

monty924 said...

Two from last season... please don't let it be two from Nicole's. That would mean Frankie grrrrrr

SueGee said...

Two we like now for the haters??

Petals said...

Are they really gonna pretend that Michelle and Nicole aren't sisters?

Nickelpeed said...

The new house guests will not let these people stay in the house. I bet they are voted out one by one if they do not get in good with a few of the new ones.

Like them all so far.

Jo C said...

Mama D in the house hell yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!

Marybeth said...

I think I will be ill if it is Frankie...

Petals said...

Audrey is supposed to be returning...

monty924 said...

Frank!! Thank you BB for not putting Frankie back in there

Petals said...

Ahh, Frank. They let him cut his hair this year!

Nickelpeed said...

Notice all the women are for the returnees and the men are anxious to vote them out. LOL

SueGee said...

Frankie is too busy in NYC (and they can keep him)

Delee said...

Why do I not remember Frank?

Anonymouse said...

They need to hook up with the siblings

Cheryl in NC said...

i didnt even recognize him

JonMD1267 said...

Please you know they will whip out Frankie at some point down the line lol

SueGee said...

I can't wait to watch this!!

David said...

Where is Frank's sideshow Bob hair. lol

Petals said...

Grrrr...I realllly dislike Jozea.

Michellch1 said...

Nicole is single?? ��

uncartie said...

Idiot weatherman reporting on tornado no where near viewing area. Damn

monty924 said...

Delee, remember when he dad to wear the carrot suit and he and Ian got into a huge fight. It was hysterical.

SueGee said...

For sure Jon. CBS sure does like him a lot

Marybeth said...

I didn't remember him either until they showed the pictures from his season.

Petals said...

Delee - he was Boogie's protege in S14. He had a huge mop of red curly hair.

monty924 said...

Cheryl, I thought the same thing when he popped out of trunk.

JonMD1267 said...

They like his sister more I'm sure they are not burning that bridge lol

Petals said...

Michlle & Nicole are smart to stay far apart - they are mirror images of one another

Nickelpeed said...

Are Michelle and Nicole sisters, Petals?

Well the former players need to stay together or get in to a group who want them there.

JonMD1267 said...

Now they turn on him lol

Caela said...

Not impressed with the returning players. I read spoilers that they were the 4 coming back but I was hopeful that it would be some one more interesting.

Petals said...

Lov e Davonne calling her out
!!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, if he has his name on side, they'd find out sooner or later.

I love it that Da knows who Tiffany is. She looks just like Vanessa AND she talks like her!

Delee said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
uncartie said...

Who are the 4 mystery hamsters. I'm etting preempted due to weather

Becky said...

David, I brought Vincent cat nip, drug of preference for felines. Right, Jackie.

Petals said...

I am excited to see James, and that's all.

The rest? Meh.
I don't like the lies, pretending you're a teacher or a mathematician or a taxidermist or whatever - just be honest! @@ Van's sister shares her affinity for the ridiculous subterfuge.

monty924 said...

Unc,
Frank, James, Momma Day and Nicole

Petals said...

Uncartie: Nicole Franze, James Huling, Frank Eudy, and DaVonne from last year.

Caela said...

Glad mama day learned a lessons from last season and is keeping her mouth shut!! Hope she remembers that!!!

SueGee said...

Not too many hamsters want to get back in the cage after the first time. Bet CBS had to pony up some extra cash! Or maybe they are unemployed and want some exposure????

monty924 said...

Petals, there's also no disguising that voice. She sounds just like Vanessa.

Delee said...

OK I can place Frank now. Thanks

Jackie said...

Only Petals is saying that Nicole and Michelle are sisters. They're not a pairing revealed by CBS -- it's a Petals conspiracy theory.

Those wishing to join in on the pool need to sign up on the sign up post put up a few days back.

monty924 said...

I hate the teams twist

Petals said...

teams, bummer.

This never worked before.

Anonymouse said...

Mmmmn

Marybeth said...

I was hoping they got rid of battle of the block, think teams might be worse.

Delee said...

Teams...that is a major twist!

Petals said...

Yes - Jackie is right. It's strictly a ME idea. Maybe they don't know each other?

It's just me.

SueGee said...

Teams?? But there's no crying in baseball

Petals said...

lol Sue

David said...

I hate the teams thing. It didn't work before, what makes them think it will work this time. Recycled theme's blow.

JonMD1267 said...

LOL

Petals said...

Frank Eudy looks totally different! He is handsome this season. Last time, he
was like CarrotTop.

monty924 said...

They were just saying that Nicole and Hayden were still dating and now they're split???

uncartie said...

Thanks Monty. Wall to on Wall weather coverage here in Chicago even
Though nothing is happening
