BB18: Live Feeds Overnight into Saturday, HoH Part Two - September 17

Chef Paul

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Perpetuated Plans:
  • Finally.
  • Late late at night their time.
  • It came.
  • The Part Two of the Final HoH comp, pitting Nicole against James with the winner to compete against Paul (Part One winner) in the final part on finale night.
  • Now, we know that Nicole and James had earlier made an agreement that James would throw the comp to Nicole so she could go against Paul at the end. Supposedly, this is because she would have a better chance of beating Paul than would James. In their theory, Nicole would win the last part and take James with her to the final two.
  • (Of course, Paul and Nicole also have a final two deal, but we're not dealing with that right now. I'm thinking that might be, as Howie would say, "A spool of lies!")
  • Anyway ... the feeds returned from the comp block and they all have little Adventure Park t-shirts on.
  • Guess what?
  • Nicole won Part Two!
  • Whether it's due to their plan or not, I don't know.
  • From what they said, James did pretty well and didn't max out on time or anything. Did he really try?
  • It's possible.
  • It's also possible that he knew how Nicole was blowing through the comp and he wanted it to look like he tried.
  • Since the feeds came back, it's either been all three hamsters together or just Paul and Nicole.
  • When it's just Paul and Nicole, they're gleeful, hugging, laughing and talking final two.
  • Paul is nothing but buttering up Nicole.
  • I have yet to see Nicole talking to James alone.
  • And that's where we stand.
  • I do think it's all going to hinge on the final part of the comp. Despite all the friendship from Paul, Nicole just might take James for a better chance of winning.
  • Despite all the friendship Paul is giving towards Nicole, he might just take James to the final two for a better chance of winning.
  • Oh, the suspense!  

Nicole guffaws. She started out chuckling.

Threw it as planned? Yes? No?

I can't imagine that either Paul would take Nicole or Nicole would take Paul. Both of them have a better chance of winning against James. Everyone knows he was not a threat this summer.

Chacha said...

Paul just might think he actually has a chance beating Nicole in the final two. That is a bonehead move

tbc said...

I think Paul is banking too heavily on the hatred of Nicole swirling around the jury house.

I'm repeating this comment from the previous post. I'm always late, it seems.

Bizaro22 - regarding the link you found showing James as favorite - that in fact IS a valid CBS site, not fake. But it's not for BB18. That's for BB17. Check the date for the announce - September 23 is a Friday, after the BB18 finale, but if you go back to 2015, September 23 was a Wednesday, and BB17 finale night. So that's a valid site, not fake, but it referred to James' win last year.

I'm always annoyed when websites don't have a date on them. You never know if you're looking at something fresh, or a decade old!

It bothers me nice guy or not that James is even in the position to come in second let alone be voted Americas favorite and that's not because I'm team Victor. I also don't get why they feel the need to take someone that might win over someone they know can't win.

Chacha said...

James honestly doesn't deserve 2nd place or AF. He wont win AF this year.
IMO the only way for Nicole to win is to take James.
I do think Paul will beat Nicole if he takes her to final two.
Paul- Davonne, Natalie, Michelle, Victor, Brigette
Nicole- Corey, James, Paulie, Zakiyah

Paul- Davonne, Victor, Paulie, Zakiyah, Corey, Brigette, Nicole
James- Natalie,
Michelle could go either way.....

Petals said...

I think James deserves to be exactly where he is. How many 2nd-placers "deserved" to be there? Cody? Erika? Porshe? Gina Marie? LOL Most of them were there strictly by default or by accident.
I mean...James actually DID down-play his game this year. His game WAS to lay-low and be sociable, which he did. He won when he needed to, he made the proper deals. He isn't just a boob that blindly stumbled his way to the finals, not IMO.
I asked his question last thread, and am still curious: how is James' game different than Nicole's? Keep in mind that one of her HOHs was given to her by James.

AFP is all Victor's this season, though.

Bizaro22 said...

Thanks Silk!! Now it all makes sense! You're right, there was really no way to tell it was last years AFP vote. I do feel stupid that I didn't think of that tho!

Petals-
The only thing nicole did different than James is that she won one POV where James did not, and she won the second part of the HOH that she had James throw.
She didn't win one HOH that wasn't given to her....
So basically they are in the same boat!!!

monty924 said...

Nicole won two POVs, but I agree that her game isn't much different than James' was this season.

Chacha said...

Oops, she dis win two.
Still say she hasn't done squat this season.

Sharon N said...

Right now, the Jury is 4 girls/3 guys, and the girls might decided they want a girl to win this year. If that happens, it "might" come down down to which of the F3 is evicted.
Bitterness... never know how far the Jury will take it!

JMO on whoever joins the Jury:
Paul: Nicole. He's realistic, so he would vote for whoever he thinks played better.
James: Realistic or loyal? Loyal James would vote for Nicole.
Nicole: James (that loyalty thing). But if she chose Realistic, her vote would be Paul (knowing James would still get $50k).



Sharon N said...

oops... there's 5 girls, 3 guys in Jury.
More lopsided than I thought!

Petals said...

I can't tell what is going on with the Paul-Nicole duo. Paul is UP her butt, trashing James at every turn. The whispering, the secret handshakes & dances? The 2 of them are making me sick.
Paul in Jury would vote Nicole for sure, since he despises James.
Between James & Nicole in an F2, I think the jury will have a difficult time deciding who played better.
If Corey is really campaigning for her, Nicole could get Day & Bridgette's vote. The rest will be Paul's.

I am just so ANTI Paul because he didn't even know what BB was! He was a recruit, a musician, model, artist, actor, clothing designer and world traveler. Oh, and he went to Pepperdine. @@
Maybe it's his beard, maybe it's his constant self-promotion, but I detest him and have since I first saw him. He's like another Austin *shudder*

Sharon N said...

Petals,
I can't remember if Corey would have had more than the roundtable (to talk up Nicole), or if he was returned to hotel-seclusion-hell immediately after the roundtable... to wait alone for Wednesday's finale???

I think Nicole is 'playing' Paul, just like she did last time when it was Nic/Corey/Vic/Paul with their F4 alliance. She was dancing and handshaking that time too. Nicole is playing smart by trying to ensure that IF Paul wins Part 3, he'll choose her for F2 (agree, no way he'd take James).

On the other hand, if Nicole wins Part 3, I think she will be inclined to take James.
She's no dummy and can see Paul has 'gamed' better than she or James. Despite the fact that first HOH was handed to her, and then James threw her The Wall, in her mind (and probably the jury's), she won those fair and square. In fact, with Paul's help, she has/had herself convinced that she would have outlasted James anyway... that he knew it and that's why he 'gave' it to her. @@



Petals said...

Good point, Sharon.

I'll be fine with James winning 2nd place, and so will he. I think he'll be more crushed to learn that Natalie has made him a Friends-Only Forever bracelet. heehee

Sharon N said...

James can't help shooting himself in the foot...
He was saying to Nicole that it would be pretty crazy to have 2 Vets in the F2.
Then follows up with, 'you know everyone will think we had a F2 deal, right?'
JAMES, STOP IT!!!!!!

Petals said...

oh NOOOO!!!! James did just blow his own foot off. How frustrating.

monty924 said...

Nicole standing at the memory wall counting the votes she'd have. She flat out said she wouldnt have the votes if she takes Paul. See, despite whatever they're saying to each other, Nicole and Paul will take James. imo

tbc said...

I am so anti-Paul, too. I really just detest him. My problem is that he did play the game. As much as I don't want him to win, he will deserve it if that happens. *sigh*

Petals, you are so right, James will be more upset with his friends-forever "token" rather 3rd place. *smh*

Sharon N said...

I can't tell if Nicole is turning on James, or just figuring out how to make her case to the Jury (if he's F2 with her). It's not hopeful (for James) that she's talking to herself in the hammock and saying James doesn't deserve $50k because all he's done is lay in bed all summer and play Natalie's game.

They each can count votes until the last minute, but there's no telling what will clinch how the jury will vote.

monty924 said...

LOL, Sharon... but isn't that what she did with Coooorrrreeeeeyyyyyy? I still think if she gets the chance, she will take James. Having said that, I think Paul will win part 3 anyway. It's a complete toss up at this point. If you want to read something funny, Dingo has her "How To Pick A Winner" (annual ditty) up at Hamsterwatch. Always love that annual gem.

Sharon N said...

Thanks Monty... will check it out now.

I was just reading a rather scathing bit about James on Jokers, and it appears he's particularly popular. Anyway, if the story is true, it makes me sad. If it's not, it makes me mad.
:(

monty924 said...

Sharon, give me the link to what you read at Joker's if you can. I want to read it for myself, but have a feeling I know what it is.

Sharon N said...

Just read Hamsterwatch's "How to pick a winner"... a bundle of true-isms! LOL
Then went and read the snip-its under each HG's picture, and she spelled it out on Corey.

monty924 said...

Yep... she always does. He's been on ignore for the majority of this season over there. :)))

Oops, Monty,
I just found the post, titled "HOH Part 2 Aftermath: Is This Adventureland?"
The stuff I mentioned is at the bottom, after the thing about Dr Will.

monty924 said...

Thanks, I'll go look it up.

monty924 said...

Had to change it back... that avitar is a funny meme but too small to see. :((

Sharon N said...

Off to bed...catch you tomorrow sometime.

monty924 said...

I found and read it all the way to the bottom. Yeah, James did talk about all of that with Paul but he talked about it last year on the feeds too. I figured that was it.

Petals said...

I just read the blurb on James'. I remember it from last year, too. Sounds like the oldest story in the book: loose chick gets pregnant, doesn't know who is the father? James is almost a victim in that.
