Big Brother 18- Overnight Recap 7/27

Here's the HOH fooling around while everyone else is playing Big Brother.
Here’s the HOH fooling around while everyone else is playing Big Brother.

Good morning everyone! I made the 7 hour drive up to Cape Cod yesterday and it is beautiful here! Unfortunately, the WiFi here is a little spotty so we’ll see how far into the feeds I can get before it stops working again. Going to keep things brief today.

  • 12:00am- A group in the kitchen is eating and talking about tea while Day and Michelle are talking about Michelle’s hometown outside.
    • After a few minutes of that the feeds switch to James and Natalie throwing things back and forth at each other in the HOH room while Paul and Paulie play chess.
    • Natalie is trying to remember what the date is and day in the house it is and James keeps saying I don’t know, maybe.
    • Back outside, Nicole is talking to Day how she got sprayed by a skunk once then complains about how she is gaining weight but can’t weigh herself and can only judge by chub rolls and neck rolls.
    • She asks Day if Frank has tried to campaign to her at all and Day says no and Nicole says not her either.
    • Day asks her if Frank tried to campaign to Corey and Nicole says that Frank told Corey not to trust her (Nicole). This is Day’s reaction:Untitled
    • Nicole says she’s done with Frank and does not trust him and she’s just going to ignore him and pray he doesn’t have the round trip ticket.
  • 12:30am- Frank comes out and is checking the time left on the laundry.
    • After a couple minutes they start talking about lock downs for comps and Frank points out that the set ups for the comps were more intricate than they realized because they were actually setting up the battle back too.
    • Nicole and Frank are both saying that they’ve gotten locked in the house a lot more this season than in their seasons.
    • Michelle and Day are saying that they smelled weed earlier and Michelle says maybe it’s legal now.
    • They start talking about what might be going on in the world that they don’t know about.
    • Michelle wants to know if they caught the guy from the Orlando shooting and then asks if they would be told if the US was going to war.
    • She jokes that Frank would get drafted.
    • Meanwhile, Bridgette and Z are in the kitchen having a meal together and actually holding a pleasant conversation.
  • 1:00am- Frank and Michelle are now alone talking in the backyard.Untitled
    • Frank is asking who is on board to vote out Bridgette and Michelle tells him Paulie, Z, and Corey would.
    • Frank said Corey told him Nicole would do it to if Frank talks to her about it.
    • Michelle is talking about all the reasons she doesn’t like Bridgette.
    • Meanwhile, Paul and Paulie are still playing chess and Day is with them whispering about getting Frank out.
    • She is saying Frank thinks she is responsible for flipping the house in Tiffany’s favoring two weeks ago.
    • Paulie is talking about how he doesn’t completely trust Corey because a lot of things he says regarding voting doesn’t make sense.
    • They are trying to figure out who would vote to keep Bridgette.
    • Day is discussing the ice cream comp and how it looked like Corey was throwing it but then had a look of panic on his face and changed his game play.
    • She doesn’t understand why he was so worried about being on the block and why he didn’t trust them to keep him.
    • They go back to talking about making sure Frank is getting voted out this week and they’re pretty positive they have all the votes they need but are worried about Frank trying to campaign with a different person every two seconds.
  • 1:45am- Nicole, Corey, and Frank are talking in the Tokyo room.
    • Nicole is calling him out for telling everyone not to trust her and says she’s never repeated anything that he told her.
    • Nicole says he’s blaming her for him going home and she has nothing to do with it and he says then tell me who to go after and I’ll do it.
    • Victor joins them and the conversation breaks up.
    • Nicole goes outside with Michelle and Z and says to Z she saw she was hanging out with Bridgette and that they’re like best friends now.
    • Z: Nah but I do eat that food she makes though.
    • Nicole says she doesn’t want to talk to Frank because she’ll get convinced to keep him.
    • Z is saying she doesn’t need to be swayed by him and not everything has to go his way like it did in his season.
    • Conversation switches to their showmances. Z says that Paulie makes her giddy and Nicole is saying that earlier Corey referred to her (Nicole) as his girlfriend.
    • Z said that one time when the music came on and they knew the feeds were off Paulie kissed her.
    • Frank comes out and they start talking about laundry.
    • Meanwhile, Day, Paul, and Paulie are still talking upstairs on the sky deck.Untitled
    • Day is telling Paulie that Frank and Bridgette think he controls the votes so he would be the best person to talk to them and see what information they will give him in order to secure votes the way they want.
    • They want to get Frank and Bridgette’s perspectives on Day, Nicole, and Corey.
    • It sounds like they are planning some staged conversation in front of the whole house where they air everything that Frank tells Paulie.
    • Paulie is going to talk to Frank and Paul is going to talk to Bridgette and compare notes.
  • 2:30am- All cams are in the backyard now.

    • Frank and Bridgette are still on the hammock talking about random stuff.
    • Backyard cam switches to Nicole and Corey sitting in bed sitting in silence.
    • Skipping ahead a bit to find something interesting…
  • 3:30am- Paulie and Paul and now having their respective conversations with Frank and Bridgette. Paulie/Frank in the safari room Paul/Bridgette on the hammock.
    • Paulie/Frank:
      • Frank is talking about how Nicole lied about voting Bronte out and how she still hasn’t admitted to doing it.
      • Paulie says he’s worried about Corey’s judgement being clouded by his showmance. He says he isn’t clouded by Z but is worried about Day being in Z’s ear.
      • Paulie is saying he’s worried about being the only one to vote out Bridgette with Michelle and then getting shit for it afterwards.
      • He said he will talk to Z and Corey about possibly going against Bridgette.
      • Frank wants to find time to talk to Z too and make her comfortable that he’s not going after her.
      • After a couple minutes of discussing various votes Paulie says the girls are so paranoid he’d rather just pick them off and Frank agrees.
      • Paulie also says they’ll get Corey back if they clip Nicole from him.
      • Frank wants to split up James and Natalie. He says James isn’t playing the game right this summer and has turned into a floater.
    • Paul/Bridgette:
      • Paul starts off by making Bridgette promise that she’s not going to get hurt by what he says.
      • He says he threw the spices POV to her because he wanted her to take Bronte off the block.
      • He’s pointing out the Frank is the whole reason she went home and she says she didn’t know that at the time.
      • Paul tells him Frank wanted to take all three of the girls to the top because he knew he could pick them all off.
      • He tells her that Frank is a bully and will gladly call him out to his face if Bridgette wants to throw him under the bus to Frank.
      • He says he felt like he had to let her know that she was friends with a liar.
      • He tells her that Frank has been campaigning against her and was telling everyone that Bridgette wanted to go home.
      • He says he made sure he figured out the secret room riddle because he wanted to prevent Bridgette from using a possible diamond power of veto on Frank.
      • He tells her there’s a reason why people keep her in the dark because she is associated with the target.
      • He points out that Frank made her believe he was ready to just accept he was going home to keep her from campaigning and now the house is ready to vote her out because they all think she wants to go home.
      • Bridgette is mostly quiet with an occasional “but Frank told me…” and Paul is basically yelling at her to wake up.
      • He is encouraging her to call him out and start campaigning for herself. She is clearly shocked by all of this and says she is really hurt.
      • He tells her she can trust him, Paulie, and Day.
  • 4:20am- Both conversations have ended.
    • Frank comes out in the backyard and Paul is telling him he cleared up some things with Bridgette.
    • He says he just wanted to ask her if she really wanted to go home and that she told him she didn’t want to go home.
    • He is saying he’s tired of the he said she said because he’s a straight forward person and just wants things out in the open.
    • He flat out tells Frank that he doesn’t trust him and knows he has been lied to by him.
    • Meanwhile, Bridgette is talking to Day and Victor in the London room.
    • Day is basically confirming everything Paul told her and Bridgette is crying.
    • Bridgette is profusely apologizing for not believing that Frank called her and Z a slut.Untitled
    • Bridgette is finally opening her eyes and seeing what Frank is really like.
    • Day tells her she thinks Bridgette should talk to Frank and Bridgette says she is going to.
    • Day leaves the room and Day goes into the safari room with Michelle to tell her that Bridgette has been enlightened.
  • 5:05am- Paul comes into the London room and tells Victor and Bridgette that he told Frank he doesn’t have his vote.
    • Apparently someone put a bunch of baby powder on one of the beds and Paul is trying to brush it all off and it’s just forming a huge cloud in the air.
    • Bridgette hangs out in the London room for a while getting some comfort from Paul and Day.
    • She says she knew this would be her downfall that she is too trusting.
  • 5:42am- Bridgette is out by the hot tub and Frank joins her.
    • Frank is asking her what’s going on and she just keeps giggling at him.
    • She keeps giving him the silent treatment and finally Frank says you think I’m campaigning against you and she says yes.
    • She says she feels so silly because the whole house knows things she said to him.
    • Frank is saying to her that she needs to trust him.
    • Bridgette quietly brings up different things that she was told by Day or Paul that was apparently said by Frank.
    • Frank is trying to tell her that she said things in front of other people and that could have spread them.
    • She said is hurt and begs him to stop coming at her so hard right now.
    • She clearly doesn’t believe what he’s saying but just keeps saying it’s okay.
    • She seems to just want to move past it so they don’t have awkward confrontation anymore but obviously doesn’t feel the same way about him anymore and is hurting.

That’s all for now! Check back later for afternoon updates!

    I know I’ve asked this before but I’d like to know when do these people sleep?? They seem to be up all night this year. In past years I seem to remember BB making them get up in the morning. I haven’t heard anything about that this year. I mean they are still up talking and hanging in the hot tub at 5am.
    I agree with some folks who miss the days of comps for rewards and for food and to determine the have and have nots. I also miss the days when the HOH room actually belonged to the HOH. For the past few seasons it seems to be EVERYBODY’S room, the door is never locked, the stuff the HOH gets seems to be fair game for everybody. The HOH bathroom is everybody’s bathroom.
    OK,that’s my rant for the day. Some of you who have been nice enough to say you missed me are probably wishing I’d shut up now.

      Times I have turned on the feeds a lot of them have been sleeping later into the day. BB turns the lights on but they still snooze. Seems like there is more night action for sure. I agree with the HOH room. Sometimes it is hard to tell who the HOH is. Guess the past few seasons have decided to turn it into a “family room”. These players of recent past are paranoid to go against the house, so they get more and more accommodating each season. I am expecting one season for them to all decided to split the money LOL. Rant away Franko! It is nice to read others’ opinions and thoughts on the season.

      • NKogNeeTow

        Elaine, I thought the same thing about the money split…lol. With the way they are all acting, you’d think they were in the Jury now.

        I remember the second night James was HOH. He came up to his room and Zzz, The Godfather, Nic and Bambi were all laying at the top of the bed, with Bunyon laying across the bottom. Sunburn was in one chair and someone else on the sofa. I kept thinking, where the heck was he suppose to sleep? He turned around and walked back out of the room and went to the HN room and climbed the bumper car next to Nat. Damn HOH room looked more like a commune than a reward.

        I know it would bother me having people that you don’t even know all in your bed under your covers & dammit eating up my snacks & drinks that I got for winning HOH.

      You are right on point.
      Love hearing from you!

      I blame Dick for the “house wants it”. Him and Amanda.
      Dick bullied people into voting for who the house wants out until he and his daughter were the last two standing. Amanda attempted the strategy and almost made it.

    • kneeless

      The HOH position has certainly become collaborative. I wish they would get past “what the house wants” mentality and play their own game!

    I can’t wait to see if they actually gonna boot Frank out….ready for some game play and I agree Franko no need for the HOH room just get a hat and pick names out of it and that’s who will b the next HOH lol can’t wait to c some game play…

  3. danmtruth

    In some ways I feel bad for Bridget. She came in the house with girl power on her mind . She was not going to let a boy win this year . Was smart and made a small alliance. You can question the group Her Bronte and Nat but early on I see an advantage in a small sub group. There problem was no idea on how to play the game to there advantage. They attached them self’s to the loser newbies led by the false messiah Joza . Than they were to much in the open about when they talk together.

    Bridget than despite her I am a strong independent female . Enters into an abusive relationship with Frank. As showmances formed Frank saw that this was not the way to approach her . Insted he presented himself as a mentor big brother figure in her life. Slowly he isolated her from the others He would flirt and play with her than push her away with a i see you like my little sister comment . Kept building her up sYing how well she did in comps. How jealous the other girls were of her . Yet not listening to what she was saying When the votes flip to evict Bronte it was Bridget who named how they could not trust. But Frank was to full of his own ego to listen At this time Frank moved from mentor to predator drooping hints he was having deeper feelings for Bridget. Again to draw her deeper into blindly trusting him As Bridget would get close he just slap her down now talking about his in his own words old lady. Making himself the forbidden fruit for Bridget.

    With both on the bock now he is playing her to the max He is campaign to evict her . It’s the only thing he can do to stay in the house He is fanning the distrust and hate Michele has for Bridget That she would target Nichole and corey for evicting her friend Bronte Reminding Nat that she and James would be her target . All things he has done to try and flip the vote to stay . So yes he is tossing her under the bus Add to this the cruel mind games Paul is tryi g to play and yes I feel bad for hwr She has compactly lost faith in her own judgment of people . Other HG are more than happy to pile on and kick someone when they are down Da gives her fake let me now be a mother figure to you while I make sure I can use ypu to get Frank out. Paul as I said wants to be view on the feeds as a master mind legend

    There has been much talk about mean girls this season Well news flash all these girls have spent time at tbat milk dish Bridget by no means is inocent but whwre does Michele find she has the right to be on moral high ground

    • Avatar

      I agree with most of what you said except I have no sympathy for Bridgette. She does not have a problem with treating others like crap or being mean as long as she’s the one with the upper hand. I just think her plans didn’t work out like she wanted when she came to play the game. She got sucked in & used by Frank & she she wouldn’t give a fat rats ass about how any of the others felt about her if she thought Frank was going to still be in the house with her. True enough we don’t know for sure who’s going home but if Bridgette knew for sure they were both staying, she wouldn’t care that nobody likes her. She’s said many times that she didn’t care if nobody wanted to be her friend.

    Thanks Amy for keeping us posted while on vacation! You did a great job capturing those nighttime conversations. Enjoy your time in the beautiful Cape Cod scenery.

    Has anyone else noticed that Paulie has not had to scramble this season?
    He has told everyone in the house that he is Cody’s brother, and that he has talked strategy with Derrick.
    These people are idiots…he is playing Derrick’s exact game, right down to changing his appearance.
    If these morons don’t see this, Paulie deserves the win.

    • NKogNeeTow

      I’d like to see The Godfather on the block, if only to make him sweat a little. To make him have to actually campaign to stay instead of relying on the fact that he thinks he’s automatically safe. He’s just a little to comfortable as Don Coreleone. Putting people on the block always brings them down a peg. Makes them sweat a little, even if they’re a pawn. They know all to well how things can accidentally go wrong an the pawn goes home.

    Gotta agree with Franko about the HOH room. I also hate how these last few seasons the HOH has let people come and go as they please and eat their basket as they please. Whatever happened to locking the door and making them ring the door bell to get in? Where’s the reward of being King of the Hill if you let the minions in to feast? Also, the have nots and who’s on slop seems to have fallen by the waste side. I remember getting excited about finding out who was on slop and cold showers and voting on special treats or not for them. Where are all they fun food comps? The real twists? If they see the season getting boring they should have twists waiting to use! It seems like the producers aren’t even trying to entertain us anymore 🙁

    Frank unfortunately is going home! With that said I really hope he has the ticket but if not bridgette needs to ride the I hate frank train to stay safe. Unfortunately I think if she won HOH..because she’s vulnerable shed make silly decisions on who to put up. At this point I’d love to see Nicole and Paul on the block and I’ll explain why. I think it was really dumb for Paul to lie about the hidden room..especially when others could go in and call him out on it. He’s a loose cannon and needs to go home. Nicole needs to go on the block to wake her up!!! Let her see who is willing to fight to save her( not sure if Corey would or would not) but she’s getting to comfortable. In my other scenario I’d love to see davonne and Paulie on the block. Davonne because she is a big manipulator and a strong competitor. Paulie to knock him down a bit. If he’s that good he will get off the block. He’s too cocky!!!

    The floaters need to step it up…really don’t want another Andy season where someone who does nothing wins

      It’s too bad Bridgette did not go with her original instinct to nominate Nicole and Corey when she was HOH. I don’t get by Nat and Bronte weren’t more in her ear during her HOH range.

  8. danmtruth

    The one good thing about everyone hanging out in the HoH room is a lot less house meeting

    • NKogNeeTow

      They had a somewhat mini house meeting in the BY last night after Gidget and Frank left. James asked the group if they wanted him to call a house meeting. Most of them said no, the last one was to ackward.

    Damn its so obvious when the writing here is being by Steve or Amy just by the blatant bias against Frank when its Amy. Steve seems to look a things from a game stand point and not personal… come on girl tone it down. You do realize your sites poll has him as the 2nd favorite houseguest. Perhaps I am the only one who is turned off by it but I guess ill just have to bypass these posts until she can be a little more neutral.

    • stevebeans

      To be fair, I have a ton of bias against Paul. Man is that guy annoying lol

    • Jannie

      Sheesh, I don’t agree with all of stevebeans or Amy’s opinions, but instead of complaining I just accept that we all feel differently about the HG’s. And then I write my own opinion. I want Frank to stay, too. Not because I like him, but because he is the only one willing to shake up the house.
      If Amy or stevebeans feels differently, so be it.
      If we all agreed, this site would be pretty boring, right? ?

      If you don’t like it don’t read it 🙂

      • Shivani33

        Please let me thank you for your work, and I think it’s wonderful! Another thing is that I’m grateful to be able to comment along with this group of lively BB watchers and learn so much here. As a sidenote, recently I read an interview with Julie Chen, and she said who her favorite player is this Season and gave critiques of some other people in the house. It’s entirely natural to have likes and dislikes and to analyze the players. None of us are robots, and your own personality shining through makes it all the more interesting and alive. So thanks for being yourself and thinking for yourself. This isn’t meant to be straight journalism, after all. It’s editorial journalism.

        That’s what I’m talking about Amy. Nobody is holding a damn gun to anybody’s head making them stop & click on this site. Whoever don’t like it, scroll on down the page & read something else & leave your annoying ass comments there.

    • NKogNeeTow

      Just because she writes the blog, doesn’t mean she can’t have an opinion, which we ALL do. Like you said, if there are post or people you don’t care for, you have the option to skip over their names, therefore avoiding their post. Both Amy and Steve do a fine job of keeping us abreast of what’s happening in the house. And they sprinkle a little of their own feelings/opinions in with their report. I personally, and I think I can speak for a lot of the other regulars her, enjoy reading them and look forward to their post on a regular basis.

      I might not like who someone else’s favorite is, but I defend their right to choose. I had someone call me to task either last year or year before last, for some of my long comments. Know what I told them? Feel free to skip over any comment they see with my name on it. I won’t be one bit mad.

      That being said, all opinions are welcome here 🙂

      Well VM you can take over for Amy when she leaves in mid-August. Give of your personal time and show us how it should be done.
      By the way, the fact that I know who Amy and Steve like or don’t like doesn’t affect me as I read the information about the houseguests. I can easily form my own opinions.

      It’s interesting how the girls get labeled mean, but Frank- who has said and done some vile things is #2 in the polls as favorite house guest.

      • Elaine
        Elaine (2441 comments)

        Michelle has mentioned the phrase “mean girl” more times than I want to count. Most of the women are not playing the game and are just lap dogs for several of the males in the house. With the extra time, they spend it on polishing their nails, pulling at the fake eyelashes, curling their hair, and bitching about others. I can’t account for the polls. James is like deja’ vu to last season, has done very little, and yet he polls at the top. Frank has sabotaged his own game by his remarks and he is leaving for it. At least he has been involved in the BB game.

    • danmtruth

      sorry V but dont shoot the messenger Not sure if you get the live feeds but it’s pretty hard to defend Frank Beside Steve and his peeps do a great job sifting thru all the crap that is said to give us an unbiased view of whats going on . They are not Fox news fair & Balanced towards one person

    • kneeless

      I enjoy reading Any & Steve’s ‘bias’ views. This is their blogging & not the media. They’re allowed to like or dislike a HG like the rest of us. Sure would be boring if we all agreed.

    Da does not want the fact she kept the fact Tiff won the RK . Not to mention all the deals she has made with Frank. Or the differant order she wants people out . Once more why talk about anything but the person your looking to evict? Why add 3 or 4 more names We get Frank out than breakup a showmance get Nichole than Paulie than ,,,,,, shutup
    Nichole is just afraid of her shadow . Another person who could not help but talk to Frank and also needs to keep her eviction wish list to her self

    This has been a hard season to find a HG to cheer for Meech now that she has started to show up casper can go vanish again Paul Bynuon beard wants so bad to be a legend . Can he stop self programming just breath Zzzz has she stop plucking her fake eyelashes or has production just got sick of thats the only thing she does

    • Jannie

      I feel the same way. Usually by this time, I have a few that I like and will root for, but this summer I really don’t care who comes or goes…
      Seems the strategy this year is just play all sides…is there even a legit, tight alliance this year?
      And enough with the lame showmances. Nicole and James were my favorites, but now they just look silly.
      And Z and her fake lashes have got to go…take away her life vest and cut her loose. She is Paulie’s Victoria.

  13. Colby

    Love your posts Amy. I think you are spot on conveying the mood of the house. Don’t change!

  14. Shivani33

    Probably Paulie will be nominated and won’t see it coming. He tends to see only through the eyes of his concept of his own plans and “leadership.” He might be imitating Derrick, but he isn’t a good observer and doesn’t do enough of his own investigating. Paul tells him what Paul wants him to hear. So do several others who don’t intend to just lie down in the sleeping car on Paulie’s Presidential train. Currently Paulie isn’t trusting Nicole and Corey, who are two ineffectual players. He’s wasting his time getting a bug up his ass about these two, when right under his nose there are stronger opponents quietly plotting against him. If he wants a clear path, Paulie needs to evict Paul, Day and James, as well as Victor. These are the ones who are consciously prepared to take him down. Paulie might see some of this and keep it to himself, but it doesn’t look that way. He needs to put on his Sherlock Holmes hat and analyze things more, smell which way the winds are blowing.

  15. Renee

    It seems to me (in my opinion) that Victor may have learned a bit of a lesson when he was evicted previously. He appears to be playing a better social game and placing himself in the rooms where eviction talks are happening. He seems to be observing more than speaking at this point.

      I was thinking the same thing, Renee. Especially since he would NOT listen to Paul before he was evicted. I just wish he would have worked on that laugh. His laugh drives me crazy!
