Big Brother 18 – Calm Before The Storm 6/29

We’re about to hit our first live eviction episode of the season, and we could be set up for a good one. Unlike years past where they were mostly unanimous, I think this one could either one down to the wire, or Jozea may be heading home.  Here is the situation: There are 3 people nominated, and 1 HoH. With 15 people remaining, that’s 11 votes and a 6 vote requirement to stay in the house.  Now, here are the current locks (barring any last minute flips where people realize one person is doomed, so they back off and vote with the house):

For Jozea to go: Frank, James, Da’Vonne, Zakiyah, Corey
For Paulie to go: Natalie, Victor, Bronte, Paul
On the fence: Michelle, Tiffany

I know people feel real comfortable with Michelle and Tiffany, and they probably should be, but there is something about them that I don’t fully trust yet. I think the votes will end up going with Michelle and Tiffany to vote out Jozea with a 7-4 elimination, but at this point I am not completely certain Tiffany would want to get out Jozea. Over the next 20 or so hours, there is a chance she could realize this decision swings the balance of the house, and she could stay with newbies. That said, even if she does, she still needs to bring Michelle with her. Like I said, I would bet on Jozea leaving, but I’m going to keep an eye on the Tiffany situation tonight and tomorrow

  • 8:05pm – In the kitchen, Natalie asks Nicole if Victor was flirting with her. Nicole said ‘kind of’, but she thinks it was strategic. She actually heard Victor was supposed to flirt with her to try to gain favor. This isn’t a tense situation, as I think Natalie is gauging whether or not she should keep trying for someone who isn’t interested in her.
    • Nicole – “I don’t care if you don’t care, which I do, but I don’t”.  Got that?
    • Meanwhile, Frank goes into the pantry with James and Corey to re-tell the story about how Frank spilled the beans on Victor. I didn’t hear the conversation (too lazy to flashback that far), but he told Victor that he’s been lying and saying things like the girls are expendable, etc
  • 8:17pm – Frank re-tells the story to Day and Zaki.  I am feeling bad for Natalie because she really likes him (Vic) for some reason
    • On the other feed, Natalie is chatting with Van2.0 about the Victor situation.
  • 8:41pm – Bronte joins Nat and Van2. Before she joined, Natalie was just saying how she doesn’t feel anything for Victor
    • When Van2 left the room, Bronte told Nat that Jozea apparently made a deal with Van2 about keeping him and promising her power… but didn’t sound like he would hold that deal up. Note – Jozea told her about the deal, so she was possibly humoring him
    • Natalie starts talking about Venezuela and stuff, so the game talk stopped for now.
  • 9:00pm – In the safari room, Corey and Nicole are chatting. Neither trust Bridgette, but Frank does and Nicole doesn’t know why
    • Switching over to Van2 cam, and she is telling the veteran crew about the Jozea conversation. This puts Jozea at 99.98% going home.
  • 9:30pm – Frank and Day are talking about Tiffany. They say she’s acting weird and they don’t even want her to go to jury.
    • Frank says she needs to chill out on the hats. She is looking silly now. It’s like she’s trying to tell everyone who her sister is, but they (Day/Frank) are beginning to think most of the newbies don’t even know Vanessa.

    • At the same time, Paul is talking to Jozea and Bronte about a few things.  They mentioned the HoH room, and Jozea said when he gets up there, he’s going to clean it up (it’s apparently messy with ants)
    • Jozea wants all their generals to go (Corey, Tiffany) and then the vets will be weak. James is apparently also the glue holding everything together (Frank really is).
    • The first two to put up, James and Corey.  Bronte wants to put up Nicole and Corey, but the guys (Vic is there as well) want to get James out first
    • They keep talking for a bit, and Bronte jumps in with Nicole on the block again.  Paul wonders if ‘their’ vets will worry if/when James and Nicole are targeted. Paul seems to think they won’t mind.  Wow
    • Paul wonders why James is so confident and messing with Victor.  Victor thinks it’s because he’s safe behind Victor.
    • Bronte is boggled by it…  “Isn’t he supposed to be good at this game??”
  • 9:42pm – Why did they put up Paulie? They must want  him out?
    • Paul – “There is no way they could have planned this grandiose scheme in 2 days”.  Nicole has to be going against Paulie because Jozea would be the obvious choice.
    • Jozea – “I hate his (James) country-ass accent. I have nothing against country people, but his annoys me”.  They all keep wondering how James won America’s Favorite
    • They continue to bash James how creepy he has been, like asking why Joz can see Natalie naked but he can’t.
  • 9:48pm – Ironically, the feeds switch and Frank, Day, and Nicole are talking about James. They’re not bashing him as hard as the newbies are, but they are questioning his game strategy.
    • screenshot-www cbs com 2016-06-30 01-11-22
    • Frank leaves and the girls (Day, Zaki, Van2, and Nicole) mention how they have to get their guys in check. They’re apparently not only questioning James, but Frank
    • The group splits up to keep Frank from convincing Natalie from voting to keep Paulie. The girls want a blindside
  • 9:53pm – Dumb is telling dumber about the history of BB. He (Joz) is saying how there have been twists where like half the cast have returned. He also said every season there is a red button that completely changes the game.
    • Van2.0 comes in and Joz asks if she’d push the red button. She goes along with it, but then when he says a red button is coming any day, she’s like “wtf?”.  When he says there is always a red button, she tells him no. Jozea says “a majority of seasons had the red button.. like season 16”.  They all laugh because his ‘majority’ is one season. From what I recall, wasn’t it also season 14, and it was just the mentors pushing it?
    • Van2 leaves and Zaki comes in. She is telling the group what they want to hear. She is still playing off that her and Day are team newbie.
    • Zaki also says how she is flirting and playing Paulie, and here is Bronte’s reaction…

  • 10:10pm – Jozea goes on and on describing his strategy through the season. It sounds so brilliantly easy. Just win comps, and if you have the majority, you will probably win.  Then m&m’s to choose nominations
  • 10:27pm – After Jozea is done revealing his entire weird strat to Zaki, she leaves and goes to re-tell the people in the living room.
  • 10:57pm – Frank, Bronte and Natalie are in the bathroom chatting
    • Nothing really exciting. I expected more, but Frank was just telling him about past seasons, good-bye messages, etc
  • 11:50pm – Been watching the feeds, just some slight scrambling. Natalie is having a minor freakout because she is the most aware newbie. She thinks Zaki is flipping (she is), and Joz may go home (he is), and they’re gunning for Victor (they are). Natalie is the newbies smartest player so far.
  • 12:00pm – Happy Birthday to Nicole! With that, I’m off to bed

Overnight in the morning

    None of this is your fault…But I saw one week free cause I have been so disappointed in previous casts that I thought okay Im safe one week free..Yeaaaaaaaaa apparently that is only NEW accounts and since ive bought previous seasons CBS is a jerk. So please let others out there know this.

  2. Clairebear

    Joz has to have borderline personality. That’s the only way he can be SO out of touch with reality and think he’s so loved by everyone. It’s cringe worthy how delusional he can be.

  3. NKogNeeTow

    Is it just me or does anyone else think both James AND Frank talk TO much? Between the 2 of them, they have practically drawn a picture for The Nickelodeon Group (Newbies). Only thing is TNG is to stupid to put it all together yet, but I feel that Bronchitis will figure it out first. Hopefully not before tomorrows vote.

    And why did dumb ass Frank try to turn Batbrain Nat? He knows how close she is with Bronchitis, although he doesn’t know about The Bobbleheads (Spy Girls). He should have known that everything you tell one, they run back and tell the other. And lo and behold, even though he swore Batbrain to secrecy, she ran straight to Bronchitis and told her everything. At this point, I’m so annoyed with James and Frank, I don’t even care if they send THEM home. They are getting to cocky to the point that they are starting to make rookie moves. Didn’t Da and Van2.0 (or Nicole, can’t remember which), tell Frank to NOT talk to Nat about changing her vote from Paulie to Mess-iah? They specifically told him to let it be a blindside. But noooo…he acts like he wants to show he’s in control. What the hell is wrong with these people? I can see if a “side” wants to control the house, but from what I’ve seen, it looks like “individuals” want to control the house.

    So far the Vets are sitting in a sweet spot. But let’s just take the worst case scenario. Frank has confided in Nat what the plan is. She runs back to Bronchitis (which she did). You could see the panic on Bronch’s face, which means she’ll probably go to Mess-iah, Pawwl and Slick Vic, who will in turn start to work on Michelle and Van2.0, who are ALREADY shaky (I’m with Steve, I’m not sure where their heads are at right now). They might intimidate or browbeat them into voting to keep Mess-iah. Then the Vets plan would pretty much be up the creek. To kill a snake, you always cut the head off first.

    Okay, just my observations so far. Any thoughts?

    • danmtruth

      The vets do have a bit more organized plan. Yet there does seem to be a bit of a power strugle. Frank is getting to slick for his own needs. Nichole still wants to think she is in control .Yet is making the same showmance mistake. Day has been smart and just sitting back. Looks like she is teaming with Zaki To be a power duo. Thats why swing votes are going to be big You have the two sides of the house but both have people who have people on the bottom of the pecking order who can flip .
      With 3 people on the block I would like to see them not announce the vote. Just say who is eliminated and let the total be secret .That way the paranoia can be retched up . Or just say in a vote of 5-4-2 Than let the fun start as first who got 4 votes who got 2 Than who how did everyone vote Let the people on the block stew how close did i come to being voted out

      Tiff would be an idiot to go with the newbies. Michelle and Bronte, yes they will vote to put Pauli out but I don’t see Tiffany wanting to get on the bad side of the vets right now.

  4. NKogNeeTow

    Oh and Bronchitis definitely DOESN’T have a poker face! She looks at everyone not in her inner circle with daggers in her eyes. Talk about looking PISSED!!!! That thing is worried!…And I’m loving it…lol.

      I CANNOT WAIT to see Josea’s reaction and his elimination interview with Julie. Will it sink in? He’ll probably say its because he is too strong of a competitor.

      I don’t trust Natalie. Her allegiance is to the Spy Girls to the end.

    What is happening with the fatal five? Already cracks ?

    I cannot imagine living with Bronte, Paul, and Bronte. The level of self-aggrandizement is nauseating.

    Why did Frank tell Natalie and Bridgette SO much? What a bad move. Natalie is too close to Bronte to be able to trust her.

    • Avatar

      Frank told them I think because of something that happened with James but I don’t know what. It really wasn’t explained on After Dark last night.

    Natalie and Paul are figuring things out. A problem for Paul is he is closely aligned with Bronte and Vic, and the numbers are not on their side. I am not sure of Bridgette (though she is with spy girls), but Natalie may start making her own decisions and create moves to cultivate side alliances. Since Tiffany and Paulie talked of their sibling connection, they may be okay for now.

  8. Avatar

    I just read on Jokers that James, Frank and Corey discussed swapping Tiffany out for Natalie in the 8Pack, depending on what transpires in the near future.

    My only concern with Natalie is her connection/loyalty to Bronte. Other than that, she seems to be sharpening her observation skills. If she switches sides, she would be an interesting houseguest to watch. She is physically fit and possibly becoming BB savvy. We’ll see.

    • Elaine

      It will be interesting to see how long Natalie stays with the Spy Girls. I am watching on back feeds and she is telling Bronte that she feels Jozea is leaving but she promised him a vote. After the vote she is going to re-assess and align more with the house going forward. Bronte is still resisting, so Spy Girls maybe on their way down.

    • AIO_7

      Were the Spy Girls ever to be taken seriously?

    I tell you I can’t figure out where BB got this cast. They are so dumb. Most of them know nothing of the game. The so called Messiah is truly in the dark. I can’t figure out why at the 11th hour Frank and James let the cat out of the bag. Everything was going great then all of a sudden I turn on After Dark and everyone has lost their minds. WTH went on yesterday evening to cause this chain of events. If I was Nichole I’d call a meeting and tell Frank and James to shut the F up. It’s not they’re HOH so shut up. I wonder how they’d like it if she did that to they’re HOH decisions? Either way I see the Messiah going home thank god! The newbies are going to feel so stupid when they watch these first few episodes. I mean really. They provide previous seasons for them to watch in the hotels before the show starts so you’d think they’d watch a couple of seasons. Dumb as rocks I’m telling you. Come on BB surely you can find some die hard fans out there somewhere. I just want to see Josea’s mouth fall open tonight when he’s voted off. I agree they shouldn’t tell the house the votes but I want to know. Anyway glad to be back for another season of BB. At least they changed the format. Although I don’t see that lasting long. Oh and Bronte, what a little racist bitch she is. I want her gone quick. She stirs up to much trouble.
