BB18: HoH Comp Finish, Nominations Episode Blog Party - July 31
Hamster watchers ready? The show is running late here on the East Coast due to the PGA golf thing. That's near where I live. I wanted to go over there and give them what for! Let's get this show going! Please! It looks like it should be starting at about 8:41pm ET or so here. I'm posting this at the regular live blog party post time, but won't be live-blogging the episode until it starts. I'm not sure if the delay is on all the East Coast or not.
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!
8:41pm here and we finally have a recap!
Finally picking up with the HoH comp. They're all doing the comp practicing with their yellow balls. Paulie doesn't want to win and get blood on his hands, so he just tosses his red ball, getting a score of six. Victor rolls his red ball, gets a 14, now in the lead. Paul gets a 21 with his red ball. That's the highest score possible without getting the ball in the box at the end of the "alley."
Michelle got a perfect shot with the yellow ball, as did Natalie. Natalie did it three times in a row, but got a two with her red ball shot. Corey got a yellow in, but overshot with his red. Nicole got a 19. Zakiyah overshot. Michelle, 16. Da'Vonne, 19.
Paul is HOH. He has vowed to get Bridgette evicted. Da'Vonne thinks she's buddies with him. Paulie wants him to fry bigger fish.
Paul approaches Corey and Victor about pawning possibilities. Neither want to go on the block. There's friendship for you, buckaroo.
Paulie really wants Da'Vonne out, telling James and Corey about it. James isn't really keen on the idea, but doesn't tell Paulie that. Paulie is having trouble convincing Paul that Da'Vonne should go instead of Bridgette. He finally says that if the veto is used, he'll put Da'Vonne up.
HoH room reveal. He does look a lot better without that beard.
Paul continues to try to get pawn recruits. No one is volunteering. Nicole finally said she would if they thought she was strong. She regrets it to us.
After a rather odd and unnecessary Corey/Nicole visit, Bridgette approaches Paul and Paulie. She doesn't trust Nicole or Da'Vonne. She thinks they're working together. Paul doesn't really commit, but leaves the door open to make her think he promised safety.
Now a Paul/Paulie "twinsy" bit. Eww.
Paul reads a care package announcement. The recipient must open it in front of the others. The first one comes today. A voice screams for them to head to the backyard. It comes down with a little parachute attached. It's for NATALIE! Socks, floss, Never Not Pass -- she cannot be named a Have Not. She was supposed to be a Have Not due to her low score in HoH. Corey wishes he had it this week, but hopes others might be better!
Nicole tells Corey that she volunteered to be a pawn. He tells her he'll do it for her. But, in a meeting with Paul, Paulie, Zakiyah and Corey, Paulie volunteers to go up as a pawn. Of course, Paulie wants to pull himself off and get Da'Vonne backdoored, but ...!
Time for the nominations ceremony. But we all know what will happen. Bridgette, then Paulie. Bridgette because of you and Frank, promised last week. Paulie, you're my buddy and pawn, want to make sure PoV ends up in the right hands.
Not friendship, Paul according to Bridgette.
Da'Vonne is suspicious because she knows Nicole volunteered.
