BB18: Season Finale Blog Party



Which one will win?

Welcome to the BB18 season finale blog party! I'll be live blogging the events as the show airs here on the East Coast, so refresh the page to get the latest news. As always, the real party is in the comments ... please feel free to join us there!

But, first ... before we get started with the show, here are the remaining blog pool peeps -- and, yeah, I'm one of them! 

Paul Abrahamian - Jackie, Arf Barf, WolfpackRed, chrob61
Nicole Franzel - Kelsey NY, Grove Wiley, Nickelpeed, Sharon C  
James Huling - Becky, Donna in Alabama, Sharon S, Willie J

Yes! Let's set these house hamsters free!

For a change, let's start the show with a recap. 

Finally to the cat/laser beam/endurance comp that started at the end of the last show. The winner of this first part goes on to the last part while the other two face off in the second part comp. 

This part one comp is great! I love the cat theme and the mix of endurance tossed in!  

Nicole almost loses it, swinging around on a rope and then falls. James fell right after. PAUL wins the Part One Comp!

Julie tells us that we'll be able to impact the BBOTT (fall online BB season premiering next week) before the houseguests even move in. Hmm. 

Second Part HoH - "Snapshot" - Roller coaster in the yard, it sounds all discombobulated to me -- taking photos of previous hamsters, gathering the photos by clues, sending up on the roller coaster, taking photos. Yikes! Nicole goes first. She's nervous but at least knows all the clues.

Then it's James's turn. He's not as good with the clues, nor the photo taking.  He did better with his second and third rounds.

James: 19:06
Nicole: 7:24

WOW! She won that by a landslide!

So it will be Nicole versus Paul in the third part.   

Jury Roundtable with Will Kirby. Corey walks in. They talk James first. He gets kudos on his social game, not getting blood on his hands, under the radar. Day wants to see him take risks as does Victor and Corey. The consensus is that Paul is a very strategical player. Day says Paul the player is phenomenal but Paul the person is obnoxious. The words he said have people bitter against him. Michelle is very bitter about Nicole. She makes nasty comments when others say decent things about her. Oh, geez. Michelle cries because everybody is "picking on her" over her hatred of Nicole. Bridgette thinks women are bitter. Day gives her kudos.

DANGER ALERT! We can vote either Jason (BB17) or Jozea (BB18) into BBOTT. Everybody, PLEASE vote Jason. Thank you. 

Aww, Pablo is in the audience.

Time for the third part of the final HoH comp. It's the Scales of Just Us once again. Paul and Nicole compete. Eight questions.
1. Both right
2. Both wrong
3. Both wrong 
4. Paul gets a point
5. Both wrong
6. Paul gets another point leads 3 to 1 
7. Nicole picks up a point 
8. Both right.

PAUL WINS THE FINAL HOH COMP! Now we get tears from him. But they're not as annoying as Michelle tears.

It's time for Paul to evict either James or Nicole. He votes to evict JAMES because he kept stabbing him in the back. 

Nicole and Paul are the final two (just as I hoped).  

Jury interrogation time! Day wants Paul to stay in the house. James appears on stage with them. Three questions for each.

Natalie: Paul, very good player, some of the things said vulgar and across the line. Why should we vote for you? Love to have fun, always crazy.

Michelle: One move earn it? Had to convince Natalie to put up Paul and Victor.

Corey: Paul, great shot? Six times on the block.

Victor: Nicole, aligned with men riding coattails? I was the brains behind a lot of it, planted seeds.

Zakiyah: Paul, why deserve? Apologizes to vets, first timer, involved, always a target.

Paulie: Nicole, why deserve? Gave 100% 1000% of the time, gave it her all.

James: Paul, lost the second part of HoH, were you ever honoring the deal we made? Nicole relayed all back, you weren't as loyal.    

The speeches:
Paul -- Easy target, worked ass off, won Veto when needed, teamed up with others at the right time, no help, no care package, won his way to the end. Most comp wins. Stayed true to self, nothing to hide. Friendship!

Nicole -- Crap, that was good. So happy to be here, watched since 8 years old. Called a snake. Convinced Paulie to be a pawn. Convince Natalie put up her people. Time to win comps, struck against Paul and Victor. Gave it all I got. 

Voting time:
Da'Vonne first, Zakiyah (so far they all say they love them both), Bridgette, Paulie needed a speech gave to best game, Michelle, Natalie, Victor, Corey, James.    

The pre-jury is introduced. Onto the vote tally.

James - Paul
Corey - Nicole
Victor - Paul
Natalie - Nicole
Michelle - Paul
Paulie - Nicole
Bridgette - Paul
Zakiyah - Nicole
Da'Vonne - Nicole

NICOLE wins BB18!   

For the first time, a woman has won against a man in the final two.

Faves vote: Victor, Natalie and James top three.

VICTOR wins favorite houseguest!  

And there you have it. BB18 done and over. I want to thank everybody for hanging with the blog this season and welcome the new folks who came aboard.

What? It's not over? Nope.

Over the next few days, I'll be posting BB18 interview links and things like that. Don't go away just yet! (Well, you can go for tonight. I've been posting a lot and a certain cat wants shoulder time.) Thank you all again!

Well I made final 2 last season with Liz but came in second. I don't have a hamster in the fight tonight so I'm rooting for Paul and Nicole. May the best one win.

Hot apple crisp with vanilla ice cream over at the bar. Pouring myself a Top Shelf Margarita on the rocks with lots of salt!!

Petals said...

hey Teebs (tbc), hey Glenn, Hey Cheryl and EVERYONE!

*thanks again, Ms Jackie & Vincent, for hosting*

Petals said...

I wonder if James did throw this one? I mean, it's hard to tell with him. He's cagey.

monty924 said...

Sweet!! The window seat is a mini wall

monty924 said...

Nic first one down

tbc said...

Hey Petsls!

I love this competition!!

monty924 said...

Paul wins that easily

Ed in Ohio said...

Aahhh go play in the litter box Paul

monty924 said...

Julie looking lovely tonight

JonMD1267 said...

he is such a tool I mean, he should have never came back lol

Petals said...

oh no! OH NO!! I just realized, we have to see Jose' again. Ick.

Becky said...

I loved the competition too. They have had some good ones this season.

JonMD1267 said...

You mean the messiah Monty lol

monty924 said...

They did have some great comps this season. Made it more enjoyable not seeing the same ones over, and over again. Even the repeats were good.

Nickelpeed said...

I was thinking that, too, Becky. Great challenges.

monty924 said...

Oh good grief... that's right. We have to listen to Jozea tonight. @@

JonMD1267 said...

Don't worry Monty Julie I doubt will devote much time to the early exits lol, we will be lucky if we get a photo of Glenn lol

monty924 said...

SWEET

monty924 said...

True, Jon :))

Petals said...

LOL Jon. Poor Glenn. I'll take Glenn all night, just not Jose. I hope he's learned a lesson about his own "fame", like - it never happened!

Ed in Ohio said...

Coasters!!

tbc said...

Thinking of seeing Jozea leads me to the bar. Can I get a Stella, Petals?

Judi Sweeney said...

LOL.... I can appreciate that Monty! Refreshing drinking never hurts anyone! Hey Sue!

monty924 said...

A lot of running with this one... WOW

JonMD1267 said...

awesome comps

Nickelpeed said...

I love this challenge. How cool.

David said...

Hello everyone. =)

Still watching survivor here. Who was the lucky camera guys that got to stay and film the storm. lol

JonMD1267 said...

James just finished this like two hours ago lol

tbc said...

This is another great competition!

Petals said...

yeah, Teebs! I love this new comp coordinator.

Judi Sweeney said...

Ugh... Jozea!!!

Nickelpeed said...

I do not think James has any incentive to win because both have promised to take him.

Wow, there's a lot of running. Geesh.

Petals said...

(wonder if James knows what "bougi" means?)

Petals said...

BWHAHAHAHAHA @ JON!

monty924 said...

It wasn't as close as they make it appear

JonMD1267 said...

doubtful Petals lol

Nickelpeed said...

LOL - Petals. A very old term

JonMD1267 said...

lol

monty924 said...

Bring on the JURY

Petals said...

At one point in the past coupla days, Paul stated that he's watched BB for more years than Michelle.
Was he just bloviating? Or was he a secret BB fan? I know he was a recruit, so..? WHo knows!

JonMD1267 said...

VICTOR!!!!!

Nickelpeed said...

Personally, I think the two best should compete for the votes. However, she thinks she can beat James. I don't know. The girls do not like her, they could give it to James. It's all up to the women in the Jury.

monty924 said...

I doubt ANY of them knows what it means

monty924 said...

I don't think he's watched it as long as he said lately. I still think he was a complete newbie to the game with only one season to watch in sequester. If that isn't true, he's a damn good actor when he thinks nobody is watching.

monty924 said...

Here we go

Petals said...

My boyfriend is so cute! ♥Vic♥

Petals said...

Get a ROOM, Paulie & Corey!

monty924 said...

Love Dr Will

Nickelpeed said...

See, they do not like Nicole. SO, I do not think she can possibly win. Just jealousy on their part.

JonMD1267 said...

Testify lol

Becky said...

Corey, that is the pot calling the kettle black.

Petals said...

Women are catty bags, man. They will NEVER vote for another chick if there is a man next to them. Period.
The only women that have won BB have won over other chicks, never over a dude (right?) Yes!

Terry is a Texan! said...

Paul will take it for sure but couldn't stand him at all

Nickelpeed said...

Love Natalie's boots.

Petals said...

What do you call that? About Paul? Dick*tude? Assh*lism?

monty924 said...

There's Paulie

Nickelpeed said...

Michelle, you are just so jealous of her. She beat you.

Ed in Ohio said...

Meech will never vote for Nicole

Petals said...

Michelle hate Nicole, wow. And is so loud about it.

I'm surprised that Paulie has continued to shave his head in to that short-bus hairdo!

JonMD1267 said...

That was a big move taking out Michelle LOL NOTTTTTT

Petals said...

Michelle's hatred of Nicole is actually helping Nicole. Oh shut UP, Michelle!

Ed in Ohio said...

Wah! boo hoo

monty924 said...

@@ Give me another margarita. I can't stand Meech!

JonMD1267 said...

I will never forgive BB if they ever ever even think about bringing Michelle back in any way shape or form lol

tbc said...

I had hoped Victor would have shaved!!

Michelle, enough....

Petals said...

Michelle - most ridiculous houseguest EVER! Makes Whamber look emotionally stable.

Petals said...

Victor said that BB wouldn't "let him" shave :(

*'Rita coming at ya, Monty*

Judi Sweeney said...

Oh Michelle..... STOP! Please!

monty924 said...

CHEERS to that, Jon and Petals!! #neveragain

ceemurph said...

SPLASH Just tuning in and all I have to say so far is THAT'S what Nic decided to wear for the finale?!??

monty924 said...

Jason Roy!!!

JonMD1267 said...

I hope Jason brought his suitcase cause he will be staying lol

Anonymouse said...

Everybody go vote against Jozea right now

Jo said...

OMG the choice is sooooooooooooooo easy Jozea NOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Helenann2k said...

Jason! NOT Jose!

Becky said...

Jon and Petals, I am nodding my little head in agreement with both of you.

JonMD1267 said...

I actually think I heard all of America groan on seeing him lol

Marybeth said...

Oh please I hope it is Jason. Thanks Jackie for putting up with them all summer for us yet another year. Seems like I have known you forever since I've been following you since the AOL days. :)

monty924 said...

Good gawd, don't brink that Mesiah wannabe back!!

JonMD1267 said...

I actually feel confident in America voting on this one lol

Petals said...

JASON!!!!!!


OMG! A coupla days ago, Paul said that Jose would be on BBOTT! He KNEW! The leaked it! If Jose' gets in, I will KNOW this is rigged.

JonMD1267 said...

No way rigged or not will he win over Jason Petals lol

Petals said...

Jon, no! Paul said that Jose was gonna be on BBOTT, then the next day (to cover his slip), he started back-tracking. But he said IT!

Petals said...

How is that possible? No one likes JOse? How can he win over Jason?

monty924 said...

Come on Paul!!!

Petals said...

I just sent all my votes to Jason, but sadly, I feel like this one is already decided. :( If Jose is on BBOTT, I won't watch.

Chacha said...

totally voted Jason 20 times just now!!!

He is very funny to follow on snap chat.
Now I get why he hasn't posted the last few days!!

JonMD1267 said...

Oh my gosh this gonna do me in lol

Jo said...

come on nicole!!!!!!!!!

Petals said...

lol Jon! ( you don't like Jose, do you?)

Petals said...

Paul wins.

monty924 said...

Geesh, were either of them in there with other people this season???

Ashes said...

Sorry just jumping in. Did Paul win part 3?

monty924 said...

Yes!!

JonMD1267 said...

Whhoooooo

Petals said...

LOL Monty

monty924 said...

Still going on Ashes

JonMD1267 said...

she cant even give the correct answer in this lol

Ashes said...

Thanks Monty

JonMD1267 said...

yeeessss

Becky said...

Paul will win it.

Petals said...

mmhmmm shock-not

Petals said...

Nic will miss this.

monty924 said...

PAUL WINS

Petals said...

wow. *smh*

JonMD1267 said...

YES lol

Becky said...

He will take Nicole -- and he will win.

Ed in Ohio said...

Anti-climatic! What's that 4 wins in a row?

monty924 said...

Take James Paul and it's a SURE thing. Still think he will take Nicole.

Anonymous said...

No didn't want him to win!

Petals said...

am I the only one who is very disillusioned?

I tell you, seriously, if Jose' gets voted-in, I won't watch.

*grr*

PICK JAMES, PAUL!

Becky said...

I missed the part about Jason and Jozea. What was said?

Ashes said...

Paul will win regardless of who he takes. I'll give him points if he takes Nicole.

tbc said...

Really? Let's back up... Jozea may get into the BBOTT house? That is just not right!!

Sharon N said...

Paul has been a better player and deserves to have the choice.

Ashes said...

James will make more money if he's america's favorite player.

Jackie said...

I see Petals has the conspiracy theories going early for the next season!

monty924 said...

Agree Ashes!! I just want it to be a FOR SURE, FOR SURE thing, lol. Nicole deserves to be there in the final 2. I knew he'd beat her in that part 3 but didn't think they'd both miss so many. :)))

Sharon N said...

Becky, if you have the feeds, you can go to CBS.com and vote for Jozea or Jason to be on the online BB. No vote if you don't subscribe.

Becky said...

OMGosh. Glad I won't be watching! Jackie, just in case my manners fail me, thank you so much for hanging in there with us. If were not for you, this blog and the people who come each time, I would NOT watch BB.

monty924 said...

Oh, Zing'n on Petals early on. Hugs girl :)))

Anonymous said...

Don't understand what people see in Victor. This will be the first year in awhile I won't be happy with the favorite. I can't forget how he treated the women in the beginning.

Becky said...

I don't have the feeds. I am an early to bed, no hurry to get up kind of gal. I love retirement!

monty924 said...

tbc, Jason got all twenty of my votes

Petals said...

Jackie, I had NO conspiracy theories for this season. But yeah, I heard that Jose gets in days ago, and NOW "we" get to vote? Yeah, I'm suspicious.

Nickelpeed said...

This is driving me crazy. I couldn't post until I resubmitted my google info. UGH

monty924 said...

FRIENDSHIP

Sharon N said...

Anon, in the beginning, I think Victor the Jozea/Paul influence getting to him.
He developed some humility and courtesy after being voted out.

Petals said...

WOW! Bye James!

I'm proud of Paul.

Petals said...

Way to go out on a good note, James. LOVE JAMESY

Glenn said...

I gave my 20 votes to Jason.

Nickelpeed said...

Whoa! No hug at all for Nicole. WOW

monty924 said...

You have to admit that was funny though, Petals. Slide me another Rita

Petals said...

Geeminy, Nicole! That outfit? Dirty Daisy Duke? Ick.

Becky said...

And what does that numb chuck think HE did when making final two with both of them.

Anonymous said...

Dam I wanted James to go

Petals said...

*top shelf RITA coming at ya Monty*

tbc said...

I tried to vote. I couldn't find it!

Good, Monty!!

JonMD1267 said...

you accomplished the not winning

Petals said...

MONTY! I just saw that. LOL!

*drinking*

JonMD1267 said...

outlook not good lol

Nickelpeed said...

It won't let me vote since I'm not part of all access. Dang. Can't let Jozea win.

Becky said...

Slide me another one,please.

monty924 said...

Pauls WINS easily now

Petals said...

Aww, James - trust me, baby: this is NOT a showmance.

Poor James.

Petals said...

FRIEND: fb

monty924 said...

tbc, you have to go to BBOTT and not BB18

JonMD1267 said...

she has two votes corey and james

tbc said...

Oh, that explains it, Nickelpeed!

Chacha said...

I am not so sure that James will vote Nicole.

Petals said...

*sliding Becky another* :)

Anyone else?

Joe? Are you here, lurking?

Nickelpeed said...

I think Nicole will get Paulie, Corey, and James for sure. It's up to the girls after that. They'll vote for Paul, as will Victor.

Chacha said...

All three of them made final two deals with the other. Paul isn't fooling James on that

Judi Sweeney said...

Yup.... Would be shocked if Paul doesn't win and he was true to his word with Nicole. She will at least get some money....

Petals said...

Oh, I need another STELLLLAAAAA !!

tbc said...

Oh thanks, Monty!

Grrr

monty924 said...

I think James will vote for Paul!!

Sharon N said...

Petals, are you still bartending?
If so.... could I get another Maggie please?

Chacha said...

I want Paul to win. I have stated this already.

Hope everyones drinks are good....

voting for BBOTT

http://www.cbs.com/shows/big-brother-over-the-top/

monty924 said...

I need another stiff Margarita

tbc said...

Yeah, slide me a Stella. Thanks!!

Petals said...

I just hope that there isn't any nastiness during the Q & A. I hope they keep it clean, positive & friendly. (notice I didn't say "friendship"?)

BTW, "Friendship" is the drinking word. LOL
