BB18: Live Feeds into Saturday, Nominations - August 20

Stroking her nominee?

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Broken Friendships:
  • As you know from my previous posts, Natalie won HoH and Michelle received the care package giving her a co-HoH position.
  • Oh my.
  • Michelle's own thoughts on the nominees had Nicole and Corey sitting in the chairs.
  • But she wants to acquiesce to Natalie as it's "really Natalie's HoH."
  • James told her to think of the end game and who the biggest competitors are.
  • According to James -- Victor can win comps and Paul can talk.
  • Well, yeah.
  • I myself am so displeased with Nicole focusing her game on yet another showmance this season that she can go away.
  • But, if I were IN the house, I'd bring her to the final two and point out all she did was showmance and be cute. Then I'd collect the half-million.
  • So, technically, Victor and Paul with Corey trailing way behind, are the biggest targets left in the house.
  • We have no real clue what Corey can do since he's a robot. We've seen him pull a few wins out of his hat, but sometimes you have to wonder if there are even bats in that belfry or just empty space.
  • The nominations came through ... VICTOR AND PAUL are on the block!
  • Natalie is beside herself, thinking she's made the wrong decision. After all, she's never trusted Nicole and Corey.
  • Natalie cries.
  • And cries.
  • James comforts her (of course) and points out that they can still backdoor Corey if veto is used.
  • Paul is livid; Victor not as livid but definitely not a happy camper.
  • Paul says that Nicole is behind the nominations and manipulated them.
  • Nicole says that Paul is the biggest liar and manipulator in the house (now that Paulie is gone).
  • A late night kerfuffle had Paul and Nicole going at each other with most of it being Paul. Victor and Corey just sat there kind of quietly through most of it.
  • Corey only spoke up when Paul said he (Corey) had been throwing comps.
  • "I have not! I'm just inept!"
  • Okay, he didn't say those words exactly. But I'm paraphrasing here.
  • Natalie cried some more and talked again about backdooring Nicole or Corey. James assured her that he can put them up next week. Hmm.
  • James told her to go with her gut and that it's her HoH. Hmm.
  • Paul is sure that Victor will be voted out.
  • But, if he doesn't shut up, he's surely doing his own game in.
  • Victor thinks he'd be good at Survivor. Well, he'd be good at the challenges, but I don't think he can take the dirt and unsanitary conditions!
  • After many talks back and forth, some raised voices ... it seems to James and Natalie that it might be a good time for a blindside.
  • The odds number-wise are for one of them to win veto over Nicole/Corey.
  • Then a backdoor can be put in place.
  • They seem to be focusing more on Corey than on Nicole.
  • We'll see what the veto comp brings to the board.
  • Of course, if Nicole or Corey win it, no way will it be used and it will be either Paul or Victor going home.
  • And the beat goes on ...

On the block! Bamboozled!

It's such a hard decision. Wah!

On the block!

Paul and Victor try to work it

Man I really wanted Nicole and Corey nominated. Hopefully Vic can snag veto. I agree logically about keeping Nicole in the game since I don't think jury will vote for her other then obvious ones. Vic for the win!!

Cat said...

I believe that Corey is just inept. Remember, he almost lost to Glenn in that first comp and would have been the first one out!

Becky said...

I missed the show last night because of a stupid football game on CBS I think leave the nams alone and vote out Paul. Period. Back to the salt mines.

Sharon N said...

James has the right of it...look at the biggest competitors.
Natalie usually has her sights set correctly, but is allowing herself to be bamboozled.
Michelle has a lot of inner-demons will only allow her to concentrate on the other girls. To her, they are all the worst....one at a time...and this time it's Nicole.

Petals said...

Geeminy! What a night. You must've love it, Jackie - a good kerfuffle. Almost a
brouhaha.

I love the idea of Paul imploding. Maybe he will actually PLAY the game of Big
Brother and stop treating this experience as one long audition. @@

I think that either CoCo will lose in an F2: neither have done anything. Corey
accidentally won an HoH; he was so surprised he actually almost formed a sentence!
And that sentence was to ask EVERYONE else what should he do? So I don't even
count that as a real "win". Plus it was that giveaway double-evict thing anyway.

James is still in a GREAT position this week, but I love my Victor, too. Hopefully he is
safe as well. It's interesting that he & Natalie had a brief (blink & you missed it) showmance, but are not working together. Heck, Natalie is one of Vic's biggest fans.
They did handle it well - their "break-up", as much as reality TV couples can.

Thanks Jackie! At least you weren't bored to tears last night. :)

Petals said...

Paul is actually a pu**y; he attacked Nicole instead of Corey, but it
was BOTH of CoCo that said the same things about Paul being manipulative
and playing all sides.
He is afraid of Corey. He totally attacks a chick like a rabid dog.
Paul is worse to women than Paulie. I despise Paul. And his nasty beard.

I bet he continues to wear the SAG outfit even when his "punishment" ends.

Sharon N said...

Natalie looks like she's back in the Vic/Paul camp.
My only hope is that she's putting on an act.

James' preference would be Paul out... but one of the 2 would do. James lays low, but he's much smarter than given credit... quietly hinting, but also telling Natalie it's her HOH and do what she wants. Nobody can lay the OTB selections on him. LOL

Paul was hysterical with his SAM bit, but I'm ready for his grungy self to go.
It's just too bad that those left wouldn't have enough outward personality to keep the show interesting. Imagine the days of having Corey/Nicole as F2. BARF


Petals said...

LOL - Watched the Paul Tirade and he is the most ridiculous person. He
could NEVER be an attorney, because he cannot form a clear sentence to
save his life. He just rambles and punctuates certain words, and each
sentence circles around and makes no sense. If/when he watches the tapes
of himself (and he will, with popcorn), he will surely be embarrassed when
he discovers that A) he makes NO sense, ever and B) he never shuts up.

Sharon N said...

Hey Petals, "your boy" Victor is #1 in the Ranking today! lol
In the meantime, Natalie is dropping... doesn't pay to be wishy-washy.
James is dropping along with Natalie.

Michelle is taking a hit too. She's smart, but gets herself lost with dislike & jealousy of all the other women.

My personal option of Meech: She'd like to be the only woman left... kind of a female "island" ... with all the men fighting over her. @@

Sharon N said...

Petals, I'm not sure about that. LOL
Paul's ego is so whacked that he'll probably think all the self-made exposure made him the STAR of the show.

Jackie H. from NC said...

I would love to see James win this. I really believe he's a good man. Maybe Natalie standing with him. I get mad at her for playing James. I think he really cares for her. Then again I'd like to see Victor standing with James. Corey and Nicole hasn't played this game at all. Michelle and Nabalie hasn't either. Now for Paul. He has played the game with his mouth. I have no idea what he is saying. We'll see.

Petals said...

Sharon - I think you may be right about Michelle. Her self-esteem is kinda warped, and
she does seem to be put so much stock in being desirable. Sad.

Jackie H - YES! James is the best. I'd love him to win the big prize or at least the America's Fave again. If he gets only a lifelong friendship with Natalie, I'll bet he'd be fine with that.
A special girl is out there for James, he deserves the BEST. :)

Sharon N said...

Hope not, but the way it usually goes, Paul will probably win POV. @@
He kept everyone (except N/Corey) awake all night studying.
Of course, that means he's tired too.

I can't remember who it was that someone (in the house) said has a photographic memory (after one of the comp wins). Was it Corey with the memory, or someone else? Corey told Nicole he stopped studying for this comp after the 2nd storm.

monty924 said...

For a long time, I've been trying to figure out who Victor reminds me of. Talking about his voice and the way he says things. If you watch a convo that he's in but he's not in the screen shot/cam, I swear he sounds just like Kaysar from S6.

Sharon N said...

Ah Monty, giving us a nice flash back to when players actually played!
Kaysar was one of my favorites. A nice guy and a hunk too. LOL



monty924 said...

Yes!!!

Anonymous said...

I would so much rather see Nicole or Corey leave, but if I was playing the game I would definitely try to get Paul or Victor out of there. I think Paul is entertaining, I don't have the feeds though so I only see what CBS shows, and follow along with what you guys report.

Petals said...

King Kaysar! My 2nd fave of all time (Next to Janey-girl). If Victor
knew who about Kaysar, he'd be proud to be compared to him.
Victor continues to surprise me with his charm and gaming. Sure, he
has an ego, but so what? He's worked hard for his body, he finished
college - good on him!
♥ Victor ♥

But yeah - I am sooooo afraid of Paul winning veto. *fingers crossed on NO*

monty924 said...

I feel the same way about Vic. I wasn't thrilled with my pool pic in the early weeks of the season but he completely changed his game when he came back in. Much more thoughtful and yes, charming now. I think if Paul wins veto, Corey will go up and they will vote him out but you can never be sure. Vic needs to win this veto to save himself. He knows that.

Kaysar was also one of my all-time favorites even though he went out both times right before jury. :((

monty924 said...

*is not was :))

Cheryl in NC said...

Man I loved me some Kayser...not only was he easy on the eyes but he was such a genuine good guy..too good for this game I think..lol

I almost want Vic to get evicted just so he could lkick Paulies butt ithe comeback comp and keep him out of the house...but maybe Paul would have a chance to beat Paulie too...we will see.

monty924 said...

Yeah, I'm hoping the same thing Cheryl. I don't want Vic evicted but I would love to see him whoop Paulie one more time, LOL.

monty924 said...

I still remember Maggie telling him that he just sealed her fate and he said, "no, I sealed your partner's fate". So calm and just fabulous!!! I liked BB from S3 on, but S6 made me a forever fan.

Playing catch-up here. Missed the Friday Carnival show / party. For some strange reason my local CBS station was showing an old Jack Nicholson movie "As Good As It Gets" @ 8PM. Big Brother aired here @1:30AM. Didn't matter as I was at a Birthday Party anyway.

Waiting to see who wins veto?! These 'girls' seem to let their emotions get in the way of their game play. Rooting for James & Natalie.

I'm not sure but I guess neither Nat or Meech can play for HOH next week??

Kayser being talked into letting go was a very memorable BB moment!

Sharon N said...

Ed, you didn't miss much. IMO, it was rather a waste of time and space.
Here's my downer review:
Carnival was a very scripted show, with Paulie erased from any/all scenes.. basically pretended he wasn't there. Ziggy sang one song (not one of his best), a couple of small games (with a couple of prizes), a TON of flashbacks, and a portion of the HOH comp (not the final).

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Sharon! That's pretty much what I've been hearing.

POV results soon?! Should be interesting!!

Cheryl in NC said...

Monty..definately my favorite season....so many memorable houseguests....even though i hated the final outcome

Someone is coming back in the house. If it turns out to be Paulie, he is going to pick right up with







































































































































































































































































































































If Paulie comes back in I hope it is Cory who goes home. If it is any of the others who come back I hope it is Paul who goes home

















Jean said...

I just watched last night's BBAD. Who is lieing? All? Did Cory say that Natalie is going to blank James blank all the way to the top, and James is letting it happen? This is what Paul told Natalie with James, Michelle and Vic in the HOH room at 2:30 am.

monty924 said...

These four/five hour comps are getting to be ridiculous. Seriously, BB!!!!!

Sharon N said...

Monty, maybe it's speaking to the quality of the players!! LMAO

monty924 said...

Probably, Sharon :))

Sharon N said...

Best laid plans.... Paul got VETO. :(

monty924 said...

Paul won the VETO

Sharon N said...

Jackie has new thread up.

Ed in Ohio said...

Figures! :((
