BB18: Power of Veto Show Blog Party - August 10
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!
Just a quick note before the show starts -- tomorrow's live eviction show is being preempted in many areas due to sports of some type. Here in the NYC viewing area, WCBS2 is airing the game. But Big Brother will be aired on the sister station WLNY 10/55 at its regular time. Please check your local listings!
Okay, done with the recap, let's get to it!
Michelle cries after the nominations. She cries more and more. Zakiyah thinks the only person she trusts is Paulie and doesn't know why she's on the block. Michelle cries some more. All the girls try to console her while the guys celebrate.
She can't understand why Paulie's not up on the block. She calls Paulie out to his face. Meanwhile, Paul tells Victor that Zakiyah should go because she's so unconcerned with the nomination. Paulie wants Michelle out. Zakiyah gets a clue when Paulie hesitates when she asks if he would take her down if he wins the veto.
Michelle and Zakiyah talk. Z isn't sure Paulie had anything to do with her going on the block. But Michelle thinks the nominations are Paulie's doing.
Paul and Paulie talk. Paul wants Zakiyah out, Paulie would prefer Michelle go. They discuss the pros and cons of both.
Paulie decides to work on James to use his two vote cancellation power to keep Zakiyah in the house. James does his usual nodding and grunting. He tells Paulie that he doesn't want to use votes that will get others mad at him.
Time to pick veto players! Victor wants the nominations to remain the same with Zakiyah getting voted out this week. He draws Nicole. Michelle draws James. Zakiyah gets Houseguest's Choice. Of course, she picks Paulie.
Veto comp time has host Paul dressed in red lifeguard gear calling for all the floaters. It's Hide and Go Veto -- the one that James wrecked the house and won in his season. They have to each hide a veto card, then the others search for it. After the fifth veto card is found, they see whose card hasn't been found and that person is the veto winner.
James is destroying things like he did in his veto. Nicole is the first one to find a card -- Victor's, hidden in Bridgette's duffel bag. Victor claims the kitchen mess (James) is nomination worthy. Nicole finds a second veto -- Zakiyah's. James found Michelle's card. Victor finds James's card. The comp is lasting so long that the audience is falling asleep. Victor finds the last card.
The reveal - Victor, Zakiyah, Michelle, James, Nicole ... all eliminated. Paulie wins the Golden Power of Veto.
Zakiyah is dancing around kissing Paulie. Paul advises Paulie to leave the noms the same and let Zakiyah go.
Paulie tells Zakiyah that even if he doesn't use the veto, Michelle will go home. He tells her gently he won't use it unless he hears buzz that she's going.
Paulie tells James that Paul wants to team up with Michelle and Victor to get rid of couples and that Paul is flipping.
Time for the veto meeting. He gives them a chance to plead their cases. Michelle was rather dismissive. Zakiyah came across better. He does NOT use the veto.
James tells us the care package had his name on it and he will do what he wants to do with it.
We can only hope so.
