|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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
