BB18: Live Feeds, HoH Part 1 Results - September 15

Pre-comp jitters

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of the Tenacious Trio:
  • They didn't start the comp until way late.
  • And, of course, they blocked it to the live feeds.
  • I remember years ago that this, the final HoH Part One, would actually play out on the live feeds.
  • This season, they've played out most HoH comps past the live show and aired them on the live feeds, thus pushing the CBS All Access for the live feeds.
  • But, you get to an important comp at the end?
  • Nah. We're not gonna let you see it!
  • It was physical, as expected. Something about them swinging from a rope. And, James made a comment that men shouldn't be expected to spread their legs that wide.
  • Hmm.
  • Paul had on a form-fitting body suit which first gave me the impression he was naked.
  • But I saw no tattoos. So, I realized he had on clothes of some sort.
  • PAUL was the winner of the first part.
  • So, Nicole and James will go up against each other in the second part (which should be in the next day or so). The winner of the second part will go up against Paul in the third part live on the finale next Wednesday.
  • Paul is playing both of the others to work his way into the final two.
  • It's to the point that I think he'll take Nicole if he wins part three.
  • He comes across a lot more sincere when he talks to her.
  • Of course, he's schmoozing up James, too. He thinks he has a final two deal with him as well.
  • But then there's the deal that James and Nicole have, possibly (probably?) dating back pre-season. They have a final two deal, too.
  • It seems to me that James would be the one to take for either of them. 
  • Both Paul and Nicole have played stronger games with a mix of social and comp wins.
  • James threw comps and now can't seem to win them if he tries. Plus, he spent most of the season cuddling with Natalie and sleeping.  The best he could get against either of them is second place.
  • I think both Paul and Nicole know that.
  • On a side note: During one of the feeds blocks (it's Jeff and Jordan), Jordan pronounces the W in sword. Heh.
  • When Nicole and James were alone, he said he'd be throwing the next comp to her. (Still throwing comps.) She promised him 100% that she would take him to the final two.
  • Now, that's assuming that Paul won't win that final comp.
  • He just might. 

Lost yet another comp

Is working both sides

Do they have clocks and calendars in the house? I thought not, but last night, just before commercial, Paul said (something like) "It's 5:49. Get ready. They're going to want to ask us questions." I glanced up at my clock, and it was 8:49. So if they don't have a clock, how did he know the time so precisely?

Jackie H. from NC said...

I have heard them give the time. I'm 3 hours ahead of them and the time would be right. Paul was driving me crazy last night talking to Nicole. May the best one end.

Jackie said...

They have clocks on the appliances like the microwave and such. They might have other clocks. It's not like the old days when Chicken George had to build a potato clock! They don't seem to have calendars, but keep track of the days as they need to remember comp dates and such.

Chacha said...

Yes the clocks are on the appliances.
Last year the clocks time got screwed up and that was funny. It wasn't even a James prank..
Ready for part two!

James knows he wont win. At best he is looking at second place.

Paul is smart. He would beat either of Nicole/James in final two..(IMO)

Becky said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jackie. Are we going to have to have CBS All Access to get the show next season? Will we have to pay for it? Does anyone know?

James threw away this season. Nasty Nat was not worth it.

Chacha said...

Becky-
To watch the BBOTT which debuts on the 28th you must have cbs all access. Next Summers installment of BB19 will be on Television as of now.

James can't win this game gamewise. He may win with a bitter jury if Nicole is in the final two

chrob61 said...

James just seems so clueless. Last night he was awful in the veto, don't think he was trying to throw that. He's got to be playing for 2nd place. I am more disappointed with him now more than Nicole. At least now she's bringing it more in comps and vetoes.

Like him or not, I am still behind my poolboy Paul- he can be obnoxious with the screaming in the diary room (who was it last season who screamed in the diary room? that realtor guy, who was he??).

chrob61 said...

Oh, and Happy Birthday Jackie!!

Petals said...

Happy Birthday Jackie!!!
Jordan is beautiful pregnant. She truly glows. She'll be a great mom.

Happy Birthday Jackie.... Hope you and Vincent have a wonderful day!

Judi Sweeney said...

I agree with you Jackie, In watching BBAD (last 1 1/2 hours was from last night) it looks like Paul is leaning to taking Nicole more than he is James. Paul is actually offering to help Nicole study and giving her pep talks unlike he does with James....

Sharon N said...

Happy Birthday Jackie... hope you have a very enjoyable day!

Becky said...

Well, I won't be paying to watch. I don't know how Jackie stands to have to watch so she can post for us daily.

Sharon N said...

It's quite possible BB may be over-playing their hand with doing the All Access thing. I've never paid for Access and don't intend to start, and I'm seeing people here who don't intend to do it either... although I'm sure we are a smattering of BB fans.

Chacha said...

Sharon and Becky-

When it was on superpass I would only have the feeds for the three months of the summer. I would then cancel superpass.

It has been on cbs for the past few years and I have paid the 5.99 a month and never canceled.
I would have it anyway so I can catch up on shows and such. I figure I would be spending that money somewhere anyway.

I should say this season I haven't watched the feeds as often as I have in the past. Its just been boring for me.

At work I have alot of down time and my coworker and I have been watching cbs shows starting from the beginning.

My coworker never watched the good wife so I have started over watching from the beginning with him. Can't wait until Feb. when the spinoff starts.

Terry is a Texan! said...

I don't care for Paul and was hoping for a Victor win
So I really think maybe a Nicole James finish would make me happy

~~Silk said...

Last year's screamer in the diary room was the "Rockstar Dentist" JohnnyMac (John McGuire), from Scranton. He has a YouTube channel that's kind of fun.

PDX Granny said...

Happy Birthday, Jackie!! Hope you're having a wonderful day celebrating with the hamsters. :)

Anonymous said...

So disappointed in James. He is just one big zero. Does not do a thing. Wants everyone else to just drag him along. He does not deserve AFP...that goes to someone who actually played.
His voice even irritates me now because its always so self serving.

monty924 said...

Yes, the CBS All Access is great for all the other perks and not just BB live feeds. I don't cancel either after the season is over because I use it to watch other shows when there isn't anything on TV that I want to watch. It's nice to go back and watch old episodes (full episodes) to check something out. Or when I feel like a BB laugh, I'll watch Janie win the HOH in S6, Evel Dick bang the pots and pans, or Jordan beating Natalie on the second part of the HOH LIVE, lol.

They have a new upgrade for 9.99 a month that is commercial free, but I just put up with the commercials.

tbc said...

Thanks everyone, CBS AllAccess sounds pretty good for $5.99 a month. My kids wouldn't mind seeing old episodes of BB.

monty924 said...

It's great tbc. Back when SuperPass had the feeds it was like 12.99 a month or you could get the whole summer if you ordered early for like 29.00. I had S3 and S4 that I bought in a CD set after those came out and bought All-Stars on iTunes, but you couldn't get S2 and some others then. Now you can watch all the seasons on AllAccess and all of the CBS shows. Someone on here said they were going to cancel their cable and just order AllAccess because they only watch CBS. I wouldn't go that far, but it is a nice perk to have for just 5.99 amonth.

Sharon N said...

As James pointed out recently, floating or laying really low is actually playing the game. It might not be what "we" want to see or our style, but it has certainly worked for a lot of HGs in the past....and it has gotten James into the F3 this time, which is a lot farther than he got last time! If he ends up winning some $$, then his plan worked...for him. Personally, I don't care for that style of game, but I guess it's a matter of whatever works best for that person.

monty924 said...

It really is, Sharon. You never know what the jury will reward and that's why this final three is so interesting. You just don't know. A month ago I thought Nicole had no shot at the game because of the "snake" persona that she was labeled with. The minute that DaVonne said she recognized her game and how well she's playing (when Meech got to jury), I started thinking she had a shot. Then Natalie saying that she would vote for her because she wants a girl to win... I think Bridgette does too and honestly think Meech would follow. In that instance, Nicole beats either one of them.

When Paulie talked about not recognizing the laying low (floater) strategy but liked how James was playing the game, he was basically saying he could vote for him. Will he? I doubt it. I think Paulie would go with either Nicole or Paul over James. jmo

I have no idea how several in the jury will vote and that makes for an exciting end of the game for me. Like I said last week. I'll be happy with any of THIS final three winning. I just didn't want Corey to win on a personal issue with me, lol. I don't get to vote though, lol

monty924 said...

I'm waiting for Dr. Will to take charge of the roundtable on Finale night. That will be a blast with THIS jury. :)))

Judi Sweeney said...

Will, Dan and Derrick were my favorite BB players

monty924 said...

Will, Evel Dick, Dan and Ian were my favorite winners. Jani was my favorite player in S6 and S7.

monty924 said...

Top two best players ever (imo), Dr. Will S2 and Dan S10... hands down :)))

David said...

I just got a e-mail from CBS offering me a free month of all access if I come back before the end of the month. I guess that is one way to boost ratings. I am considering it but just for the month. Since my internet speed is not up to snuff it is frustrating trying to watch any shows on CBS so the only thing I watched it for was the live feeds.

I guess a free month of the new BB wouldn't be too bad but I would not continue past the month.

Judi Sweeney said...

LOL.... I hated Evil Dick! He was so mean and EVIL. But, he did keep it exciting! LOL... I liked Jani

Judi Sweeney said...

I agree with you on the top two best players Monty!

Judi Sweeney said...

Good for you David! Wooo Hooo

Corey's exit interview with Jeff: http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/bb-after-show/?intcid=CIA-00-10abc4j

Petals said...

OH - seems like both Paul & Nicole want to take James to the F2 because he'd be easy to beat. Good! So James will at least get $50k. He'll be fine with that; it's a lot of Bailey money.

Petals said...

OH! Corey & I have the same birthday - Halloween! So I guess I can't dislike him TOO much,
since he is my Scorpio-b'day-buddy.
LOL

chrob61 said...

Thank you silk- it was JohnnyMac. Now, I don't think Paul screams as much as Johnny did, but you all get my drift. Paul talks, shall I say, very emphatically to the diary room sometimes and it's a bit annoying.

Sharon N said...

Petals,
I'm not sure that Paul wants to take James to F2. He talks in circle, but in talks with Nicole, he "says" that he doesn't James getting any $$ because he's been sleeping and throwing comps instead of playing. But Paul is still covering his bases (as best he can) by having a F2 with James as well... but he has only offered to study with Nicole. Plus, Paul might also have himself convinced that everyone hates Nicole.

The glitch for Paul will be if Nicole wins Part 2 and then follows up with winning Part 3.
I don't know what the smart pick would be for her F2, but my guess would be she'd pick her friend, James.

Jackie H. from NC said...

Last night watching BBAD what happened to James? BB told him to go somewhere and he never did come back. How many more shows are they to do?

Sharon N said...

Sorry, missed a few words in sentences above, but I'm sure you all know what I meant.

It might be difficult for the Jury to choose between Paul and Nicole for the win.
Whether we like Paul or not, starting from week 2/3, he has played the best game. BUT, there are more girls in Jury, and it appears that several would like a girl to win, so Nicole might have the edge. If either one chooses James for F2, that's exactly what he'll end up. In 2nd place.

Judi Sweeney said...

I agree with you completely Sharon... Exactly how I am seeing it too! ^5

Judi Sweeney said...

I thought he was in DR the whole time Paul and Nicole were talking Jackie. BBAD cut off before he got out.

Sharon N said...

Jackie H,

There are only 2 more actual shows left. One is this Friday, and the other is next Wednesday (the finale).

As I recall (and might be wrong), BBAD continues every night, but there's at least 1 more night that BBAD will be pre-recorded.

Jackie H. from NC said...

Thank you Sharon. I really do appreciate your help. I'm really going to miss all of you after BB goes.

Sharon N said...

You're welcome Jackie H.

Hey all, don't forget to vote AFP each day.

monty924 said...

I'm way behind on the comments, but Judi... Evel Dick was not Evil :)))

He just knew how to play the game strategy wise and he was helped out BIG time by the America's Player twist that season. He and Dani were the best duo up to that point to EVER play the game. They mapped out their strategy every week with candy bars and sugar packets and it worked. They knew who to target, who to vote against and get out of the house and YES, we helped him out when he was on the block against Dustin. I LOVED it :))) Another one of those old episodes I love going back and watching, lol.

monty924 said...

Jackie H, James went to the DR and was in there for over an hour. When it gets down to the final three that is the time to make your moves and Paul did that with Nicole. She finally told him she had to get some sleep, lol. He was annoying me out here telling her how to play the game and WHAT to study when she's the one who already played the game. I just giggled sort of. Nicole has shown that she knows how to play this game this season. She doesn't need coaching from Paul. :)))

But I do like that he's putting in the effort while also telling James he's in his F2 deal with him also. Paul's no dummy. He's keeping his options open, and Nicole and James are too. One of the best F3 ever in my opinion. Who knows who will win???

Judi Sweeney said...

Yup, it's a toss up this season Monty...

Evil I say, Evil! LOL... I needed to drink while watching every episode that season... LOL....

monty924 said...

Funny... I had my best FEEDS moment ever that season. The night that Jen stole all of his cigarettes and trashed them in the storage room. I think that was the only time I ever watched the feeds on quad and was talking on the REAL message boards back then and said... "Whoah, look out. This is going to be a fight for the ages". Jessica was the one to tell him that he needed to go check his cigarettes and she was spot on. That night was epic on the feeds if you are a feeds viewer.

Judi Sweeney said...

Oh yes... That was an epic night! That guy had me glued to the TV.... LOL... I was dying with the cigarettes move!

Just watched Corey's interview with Jeff and he wasn't a complete "goat" boy, but I still cant follow him or vote AFP for those reasons. I think he and Nicole might have a smidgen of a chance outside of the BB house. I'm not putting money on it, lol.

I loved the last half of the interview with Ian more than the interview with Corey. :)))

I still love Ian, and I LOVED his win against Dan. As JonMd would say... EPIC, lol

Petals said...

Monty, you just made me have a flashback! I read your post, looked off in to space and ... thought it was many years ago...I was so disappointed when I realized that it is 2016, and I'm no longer a size 6. Grrr

Jax - I hope you & Vincent had a great birthday celebration!

LOL The Dick/Dan/Jen & cigarettes & mayhem.
Ah, the good ol' days

Petals said...

I love this blog & our vibe. ~~~ sigh ~~~

coolest place

Petals said...

Oh Monty...no no no. I watched the Co interview, but all I heard was a good 'ol boy, saying all the right things. I think his initial "panic-response" was a more accurate idea of Corey & Nicole's relationship: "friends forever"! And even with Jeff, he said, " Whoever ends up marrying Nicole..."

Meh - who cares. Corey is like sawdust.

Jackie said...

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes!

I've watched live feeds since the first season -- working the boards at AOL had its perks! I've watched it go from the chicken coop cam, to FOTH, to fish and now Jeffish. I think they're heavier on the block buttons as time goes on. We had some really great brouhahas on the feeds!
