BB18: Power of Veto Show Blog Party - August 17
Hamster watchers ready? Ready for some zings? 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 -- please join in on the fun there as we watch the show together!
Recap, recap. ZingBot is back! But we knew that.
Victor tells us that Paulie is his target, Corey is just guilty be association. Paulie cries. He's a champion, y'know. He says it's full on beast mode from now on. I guess he can't come up with anything original. Both Paulie and Corey confront Victor. Heh. Paulie argues and Victor holds his ground.
Nicole is worried that she and Corey are both guilty by association and feels scared. Paul tells Paulie he had nothing to do with it. Paulie figures out he's all alone in the house. Too bad, so sad.
Then Paulie cries to Corey. Literally. Tears and all. He never wanted to put Corey in harm's way and tells him he'll use the veto to save him. Yeah, right.
Veto player picks time! Victor draws Paul. Paulie draws Houseguest's Choice. He chooses Nicole. (She tells us she will take Corey off the block.) Corey draws James. Natalie will host.
The others decide to rattle Paulie up before the comp -- Paul, James, Michelle -- so he won't perform well. They decide they'll call him out on things. Paul tells him that he doesn't think he (Paulie) never really had his back. Michelle calls him a manipulator. Paulie gets all defensive. Michelle tells him he's never going to be like Cody and Derrick. James called out Paulie on sexist comments. Heehee -- Michelle walks behind him making explosion noises and gestures to symbolize "blowing up his game."
ZingBot arrives and gets them all out of bed.
Corey - What do you call a man who sweeps Nicole off her feet? Hayden.
Victor - Called a douchebag in Spanish.
James - You love to scare people, the ones you scare the most are Natalie's parents.
Paulie - Less attractive, less charming, lesser person than Cody.
Big Meech - Sleeps all day, cries all night and can't stop throwing up.
Natalie - Not the brightest bulb, lack in smarts make up for in armpit hair.
Nicole - Watching you on BB16, threw game away for showance, no chance of winning ... wait that's BB18.
Paul - You have a lot of catch phrases, here's one everyone will get behind -- shut up!
ZingBot tells them he's running for president and to meet him outside for the veto comp. "Make America Zing Again." All patriotic. United States of Zing. Series of rounds, catapulting a beanbag to a zing map for votes. It's the one they can take away prizes from the others.
Paulie -- 32 votes
Corey -- 28 votes
Paul -- 8 votes

Nicole out. Wins secret service duties. She trades with Paul.
Round three -- I won't announce the scores because I turn my head and Natalie doesn't announce them!
Corey is out, wins a vacation to any American destination. He takes the veto from Nicole.
Round four --
Paulie overshoots and gets a zero. He's out, wins a Patriot-tard. He takes the veto from Corey.
Final round --
James overshot, got a zero.
James won $5000. He holds onto it.
Victor wins apple pie baking all summer, he trades it for the veto from Paulie. More tears from Paulie.
Paulie is "devastated" and says he won't be baking apple pies.
Corey gets his patriot-tard, complete with a bald eagle hand puppet.
Paul got a suit, shades, and every time he hears the red alert, he has to pat down each of the others, then clear five checkpoints. He has fun with it.
Paulie gets his pie alert. He has to wave a ZingBot flag all the time it cooks. He's NOT having fun with it. He cries more in the Diary Room. Sobs even. He cries to Natalie and Paul, saying he wants to go home.
Cry me a river, Paulie boy ... then bake me a pie!
Veto meeting time. Paul's secret service red alert goes off during the meeting. What a shocker! Victor does NOT save either of them.
