BB18: Live Feeds into Thursday - September 1


Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Paul and Victor:
  • I seriously have nothing new to report except that Corey decided what to do with his bribe he got in the care package.
  • He's going to give it to Victor in return for voting out Michelle tonight.
  • Um.
  • Um.
  • I guess that it doesn't matter that Victor was going to vote out Michelle tonight on his own volition anyway.
  • I don't begrudge Victor the gift. But I do see it more of a gift than a bribe.
  • It will top his winnings this season nicely ... because so many hamsters have played like dolts this season!
  • If the two couples don't come to their senses, it will be Paul and Victor in the final two.
  • If those two are the final two, Victor will be Victorious.
  • And that 5 grand will help him buy a car with air conditioning atop of paying off student loans and helping out his mom.

Yep. On all accounts.
Everyone likes Victor, but might not want to give it to someone who got evicted 2 times... feeling he should have stayed gone. Never mind they kept him there! If Paul & Victor are the F2, I doubt the jurors would give Paul the $500k, but with this stupid group, who knows!!

Yes, Paul is an obnoxious loud-mouth boor, but he's The Boor who really wants to WIN.
So, IF he has the opportunity, I do think he'll 'turn' on Victor and take a girl (or Corey) to F2. JMO

They all loved Jozea ya know. @@

I have a problem with this "bribe".....

This isn't a bribe and its just another production game with the television only audience.

Like Jackie said, this is a gift.

There was no way Victor would have voted out Paul.

Paul in my opinion does deserve he final 2. Vic not so much. He got a four week vacation. Yes he beat each person in comps to come back in but the challengers werent that great.

If I was in the jury I would vote Paul.

Sharon N said...

BB should have laid out ground-rules on the 'bribe' but I guess Nic/Corey could claim they weren't sure Victor would vote out Michelle. @

Most of the people have liked everyone, but might not like the fact that Victor was evicted and came back twice. Although Victor is generally more pleasant to be around, Paul has circulated with everyone much better, making friends and being entertaining (SAM), so they could vote Paul vs Victor. If the Jury was allowed to discuss events/HGs, they'd see Paul has been the mastermind behind almost everything... after Frank left. Victor is merely Paul's protection to the end.

Judi Sweeney said...

It bothers me that the bribe isn't being used as a bribe at all. Now, offer it to James or Natalie to vote your way, now that would be a bribe!

Judi Sweeney said...

Thanks Jackie... Hope you're feeling a little better!

Chacha said...

Judi Sweeney-

I agree, it shouldn't count as a bribe to Victor.

Chacha said...

Sharon N-

The Jurors all know with the exception of maybe Bridgette/Davonne that Victor has stated that Paul is the social aspect of their alliance. Paulie has heard this as well as Michelle who will go tonight.

VIctor is the muscle of comps and Paul is the brains. We have heard this for weeks now.

Petals said...

I disagree with Paul being the "brains". He's just an ass, period. Clearly, Victor has come out of whatever shell he may have been in that caused people to think that he lacked social skills.
I find him to be far more charismatic and personable than Paul, or ANY of the other hamsters this season, for that matter.

Victor has totally run-away with America's Favorite Player prize, too, IMO. I like James, but he has just faded in to the Astro-turf. He handed the HOH to Nicole, and AFP to Vic.
♥♥♥♥ Victor

Don't James and Natalie think they are voting Corey & Nicole's way already. To bride them to vote Michelle pretty much shows their cards. Though, if Nicole breaks a tie, that will show her cards. I think that victor battled his way back in twice could be respected by the jury, especially since many of them completed in those same comps.

Tami said...

If it is paul/Victor f2 I probably won't watch. I do not either of them so nothing to look forward to

Tami said...

I do not like...

Anonymous said...

I don't like that Victor has made back in twice. One time okay but twice? I hope next season is so much better than this season because this season has left me sighing quite a bit.

Seems like for the past several seasons we all say we want BB to bring on the unexpected.
They tried to this year but ONCE AGAIN the casting sucks. Why they would bring back James who is nice.....but never does ANYTHING. Borrrring. Cast members who don't know one thing about the show....and bringing back someone who was only interested in a showmance the last time they were on. OMG!!! Paul is just plain disgusting. Although he has calmed down...I can never forget some of the filthy things he said....not to mention "bone" and "your boy" I feel like screaming when he says those things. Same ol story again....I am disappointed and I don't really care anymore. Victor is not the "end all"...he is just the only one left that we have.
What a couple of nuts Cory and Nicole are to GIVE AWAY the bribe for no reason. Thats not a BB move. Its "lets be nice and stupid"> what else is new. I will forget about this season and quit watching and move on to Survivor. Hope that casting is better.

tbc said...

Victor receiving the "bribe" is such a lame move. What makes me upset is that Nicole even said to Corey, we have all the power. It's just for naught. Maybe she'll surprise me and vote out Paul, but I'm not holding my breath.

I take it James still hasn't spoken to Nicole?

chrob61 said...

So if I'm getting the gist of what's going to go down, Nicole will stand up and vote out Meech with the tiebraker vote tonight? That would be a shock to Natalie and James and the lines will be drawn? A battle of 3 couples.

Jackie said...

Although they're still looking through rose-colored glasses, I have a feeling that deep down inside, they realize Michelle will likely be voted out. I doubt it will be a shock. They see the clues that Victor and Paul are constantly hanging out with Nicole and Corey, yet have done nothing about it.

Sharon N said...

tbc,
James was going to talk with Nicole yesterday. There was a couple of times he (or Natalie) could have talked to Nicole w/o Paul or Victor doing their constant sit-in/protection, but James and Natalie just floated out of Nicole's space like nothing is wrong. They both thought Michelle should talk to Nicole, but Michelle feels it's no use and, unlike James/Natalie, realizes her eviction is happening tonight.

Production has been constantly nagging Corey to use the Bribe. They don't want their "Gift Packages" going to waste, and want a "will it work" comment to make on National TV. @@ So Corey/Nicole mulled over (at length) who "he" should to give the 5k to, and the only HG Corey wanted was Victor. So he made up the phony explanation that Victor could switch and vote out Paul. @@ Nicole wavered back and forth multiple times before finally allowing Corey to tell DR that he was "bribing" Victor. She couldn't make up her mind if that was a good idea.

Petals,
Although none of us likes Paul and I hate to say it, he IS the brains who comes up with the ideas to save himself and Victor. Paul plays both sides to ensures his plans will work. While Victor the Brawn is the eye-candy who is capable of winning a ton of comps. Without Paul, he would be at a loss and going to Jury again if Paul wasn't telling him what to do.

Paul has also been smart enough to ensure only Paul/Victor can talk with Nicole for any extended period of time. Instead of sitting back, James should have been confirming the deal with Nicole early on. He might have been able to make Nicole realize Paul is playing her. Why she can't see Paul/Victor are more dangerous only confirms she's an airhead.



Jackie H. from NC said...

Wake up Nicole. Your boyfriend ain't worth it. He's going to dump you so fast. Like a hot potato. Talk to James.Bring him to the HOH room and tell everyone to leave and lock the door. This is what I would tell Nicole.

Nicole Chenault said...

I didn't like the battle backs either, but the fact that Victor managed to get voted out twice and come back twice would actually make me more apt to vote him to win. That and the fact he held on long enough to make sure Paulie didn't come back in, haha

tbc said...

Thanks, Sharon. I am frustrated by how they are acting. It's just a game, though. James has said that alot. Oh well. I was just hoping to see a turn of events tonight! blah.

Jackie, I see your point. They see the writing on the wall, so why try to convince Nicole otherwise.

See you all tonight. Hopefully, something exciting will happen. Hey, a girl can dream.

Chacha said...

Sharon-

I have to say we are thinking alike. Loved how you explained info to tbc...

on another note here is the info on the digital version of BB: OVER THE TOP

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/big-brother-cbs-all-access-925014?facebook_20160901


I have to say I didn't watch last nights episode and not sure how much of tonight I will watch. I do expect it to be some form of endurance.

I want james or Natalie to win.....just to piss off the other four

monty924 said...

I also think it will be some type of endurance. Why else did BB say that Corey would have to the end of the next HOH comp to use the bribe? I didn't mind Victor getting the 5K, but it was rather lame considering he was going to vote that way regardless. It was a useless ACP anyways.

Chacha said...

Monty924-

I agree, it wasn't a bribe but the people who only watch the show would not know this. I am sure DR is asking Victor to state why he should vote out Paul..... and this is what they will use as we all know he wouldn't vote paul out to begin with

Sharon N said...

Jackie's blog will be my info-site tonight.
Broncos/Cardinals feetsball, so BB preempted in my area until 1:00am. :(

Anonymous said...

Just when we think the househuests cant get any dumber along comes season 2016 and Corey, James an even Nicole.--clover

Judi Sweeney said...

Natalie was up in the HOH with Corey and Nicole by themselves and never took that opportunity to talk game or anything.... Frustrating! Why would you not take that opportunity to assure N/C they don't need to worry about Michelle coming after them?! That's probably because Natalie would join up with Michelle in getting them out!

Sharon N said...

Judi, I don't think Nicole would have believed Michelle wasn't after her. A while back, those were the words Michelle said directly to Nicole.

Nicole has already had thoughts of Paul/Victor being so strong, so it would have been far more valuable to have planted the seeds that Nicole would have NO chance of winning with those 2 in the F4. Not with the combo of Victor's wins, and Paul leading the charge.

Judi Sweeney said...

True Sharon... But anything is better than not saying ANYTHING to N/C and then to expect Nicole to break a tied vote by keeping Michelle.... Again. Nicole even said on BBAD when Natalie came and left the HOH (looking for her finger nail file) room that Natalie should have talked to her, but she didn't... Because of Natalie and James not taking the time to talk game with her, she doesn't trust them.

Really, when J/N/M spend a week mainly by isolating themselves, how do you really expect Nicole and Corey to trust you are still the final 4... Especially when you have V/P being friendly and blowing smoke! And James and Natalie have talked a number of times about putting N/C up... I am even confused about who they should really trust. I want Paul out and "I" think that the best move.... But Nicole knows for sure Michelle is gunning for her and Natalie is her sidekick! The only one Nicole can maybe trust is James....

Did anyone see when Michelle was whining "Why do all the boys like Nicole?" Michelle isn't good at this game because she runs with a jealous heart... BB super fan? Really?!

Lili said...

Nicole is going is feel like a royal idiot when it finally occurs to her that she sided with, and saved, and gifted $5000 to, the Paul and Victor alliance, whom she will surely lose to, AND, she will get dumped by Corey before they all leave the BB set on Finale night. And why will all of this happen?

Because she was so obsessed over the one small comment that Natalie at one point wanted Victor to stay more than Corey. Wow, the audacity of considering her options on who to vote for, the nerve Natalie, the nerve.

Nicole took that one thing and allowed herself to be blinded by it so thoroughly that she could no longer see the forest. She quickly forgot telling James...never let anyone come between us. She quickly forgot he handed her the HOH on a platter, and she now seems to believe, after drinking the Paul Kool Aid for days, that she and Corey can go to the F4 with Paul and Mr Comp Beast Victor and win?

Yes James put too much faith in Nicole's word and loyalty. But Nicole, she has given away her game, James and Natalie's game, her self respect and a good measure of her dignity by over reacting to just hearing that Natalie was just considering voting out Nicole's soon to be former boyfriend, and then falling hook, line and sinker for every single bit of fish oil P and V are selling. As a veteran she should know better. She deserves to lose to V and P. But James, he got a raw deal by Victor getting two turns back in the house, and treating Nicole, whom he believed to be in his alliance with generosity. Sorry James, nice only gets you so far in BB.

monty924 said...

It wouldn't have been a good move on James and Natalie's part to plead Michelle's case. That would have just further solidified that they are a 3 in the house with two other pairs. Only Michelle could have helped herself by campaigning at this point and she didn't. Some superfab she is. @@

There are no HGs who really deserve victory, but, in order of the quality of jury case they can make, I'd rank them in this order:
Paul--has always made an effort
Victor--can't deny his clutch comp wins
Nicole/James--made too little effort; played only when they thought they had to; stayed under radar when they could
Natalie--except for a few instances, hid behind James (sometimes wisely)
Michelle/Corey--dead weight; very lucky to still be there

So, if you are Paul or Victor, you should eventually want the other one out, and to end up in F3 with Natalie, Corey, or (if she's still there) Michelle. Both should plan, when numbers and power are right, to turn on the other.

If you are James or Nicole, you should fear mostly Victor and Paul, and want them out. They should work together for that purpose while they still have numbers. Then, you should want the other vet out, and want to take Corey and Natalie to F3.

If you are Corey, Natalie, or (conceivably) Michelle, you hope to ride stronger players' coattails into F3.

So, at some point, we should see some HGs start looking out for #1, and some of this positioning may develop.

Judi Sweeney said...

Lil.... Trust wasn't lost over just ONE sentence.... Prior to this last week Natalie was constantly sending James to check on where Nicole's head was which also caused a lot of mistrust. Plus Natalie has also been throwing N/C up for death row... James is the only one in that group that Nicole could trust and she also knows that James will probably do what Natalie wants. And if they aren't talking to you for a week about game... How could anyone really trust?! Like I said before... I am confused as to who I can trust and I see and hear a lot more than Nicole. Trust me, I'm not a Nicole fan... But I can't honestly blame her for doubting James and Natalie... With Michelle ALWAYS wanting Nicole OTB! That is a for sure... No doubting that at all.

It is a COMPLETE waste of the bribe going to Victor! Stupid!!!

I agree with everything else... But, Nicole and James are both going to be embarrassed about a Showmance leading them! Big mistakes and they lost it long ago. I was really expecting more.

Judi Sweeney said...

I agree Anon....

Judi Sweeney said...

If James and Nicole don't TEAM up again solidly... They are sitting ducks and might as well waddle into the jury house now while they still have some feathers...

Cheryl in NC said...

lol..if i were Cory ..i would save the bribe until after the next hoh and use it to bribe whoever wins to nominate nicole ...lol...it can be a secret..would serve her right for throwing her gane away too over a boy

Petals said...

Agree Anon 8:05. But I despise Paul, so I'd place Victor above him on your list.

Sharon - Football is preempting MY Big Brother tonight, as well. It happens a few times around this time of year. Thank Goodness for JACKIE!!

Petals said...

Cheryl - Corey is such a dull tool, he couldn't sleep with this "bribe" hanging over his head. He's ridiculously dim, and this was just more information than his teeny brain could handle. He threw it away like a hot potato. grrr.

The more I learn about Nicole, the more I side with Hayden re their break-up. Hayden seemed like a funny, witty guy. I'll bet he was too sophisticated for Nicole (and used the marriage/kids issue as a convenient excuse). Way to dodge a bullet, Hayden!
