That Didn’t Go As Planned; Feed Updates



Before we talk about the feeds, the episode, the speech, or the HoH, can we talk about Nicole. What was up with that outfit tonight? She looked 8 years old. Not that she looked bad, it was just funny to see her prancing around like she was on the way to a playground. I love her though, she’s so sweet (though she’s still Amy’s pick for the season)

Alright, there isn’t any time for a recap of tonight. Feeds up already and they’re finally good (watch them here)



  • 7:05pm – Frank is talking to Paulie, Corey, and Bridgette in the safari room trying to figure out who flipped. He thinks Corey and Paulie didn’t. Feeds cut for a minute, then they return with Frank gone and Michelle coming into the safari room saying Frank just said something to someone.
    • Switching to another camera and re-watching it. Frank approached Tiffany and told her the only reason he went after her is because Da’Vonne told him Tiff was after him. That they had an all girls alliance
    • Da’Vonne overhears and comes in and Frank/Day go back and forth. Da’Vonne is denying saying anything to Frank, while he is calling her out as a liar.
    • Day dropped down a ‘point, blank, and period’.. you know things are getting real now
    • As she walks away, Day drops how he won the RK and put up Bronte. He yells back that Bridgette already knows that (good thing he cut that off at the pass)
    • Now Tiffany is saying her side of the story how she heard Frank was targeting her. He denies it until he heard she was coming after him
    • Da’Vonne drops how Frank wanted to go after Corey and Paulie. He says they already know.
    • She tells him he’s going home, and he says ‘Not this week’.  She replies ‘There are plenty of weeks’
    • Frank tells her that she starts the drama and that’s why she got sent home her season.
    • Paulie jumps in to try to calm the situation
    • Da’Vonne leaves and Frank is doing damage control. Paulie asks what she meant about Paulie/Corey and Frank said he was just humoring Da’Vonne.  Tiffany gives him this look…
    • tiffany-looksfrank
    • Frank makes a joke about something Tiffany said during her speech. With shit coming out of his mouth. She said she didn’t mean he had bad breathe.
    • He jokes how she mentioned his farts, but he admits he does fart a lot
  • 7:15pm – In the safari room, sunburn is talking to Day and Nicole. Day is still upset that Frank told Tiffany the secret
    • Z comes in the room saying how good of an actor Frank is how it just kept rolling off his tongue.
    • Switching back, Frank is still doing damage control with Paulie.
    • Frank thinks the votes were him, Paulie, James and Natalie.  A+ effort by Paulie to keep with the plan while also being able to say he was still on Frank’s side
    • Paulie’s early talk is putting Day up vs Tiffany, but I doubt that’s what it will end up being
  • 7:25pm – Da’Vonne comes in and says “It don’t gotta be awkward” and shakes Frank’s hand.  He said it’s all part of the game and he’s fine with it all
    • frank-day
    • 20 minutes of drama for the Big Brother 18 season, and it seems like it has ended already with a handshake.  We’ll see, it should flare up again
    • Frank doesn’t think Z is mad. I guess he’s not the only good actor
  • 7:40pm – Frank and Nicole go off to talk
    • She asks if he trusts her. He says he has to at this point
    • Nicole is denying the vote. She is saying her and Corey voted to get Tiffany
    • He guesses Day, Z, Michelle definitely voted for Bronte. He’s trying to figure out the other two. Nicole does a terrible job at sidetracking the conversation until she eventually says ‘at least your safe’
    • Frank says he doesn’t want Tiffany out now. He wants Da’Vonne out.
    • Nicole asks where James’ head is at (hint: check up Natalie’s butt)
    • He wonders if James got Natalie to flip and vote out Bronte
    • Frank says ‘No BS’ing me… this means it was me, you, Paulie and Corey’
  • 7:54pm – Day, Z, and Sunburn are chatting in the HN room
    • They are bashing Tiffany for saying that stuff to Frank
    • Day is regretting losing her temper because that’s what got her sent home last season
  • On the other feeds, Paulie is chatting with Corey and Paul on what he’s going to do
    • Paulie says he is not putting Day up (while she was in the room. She then left)
    • They talk about how Frank wants all the guys out because he thinks he can beat all the girls, and Paulie thinks so as well
    • Whispers continue how they want to keep getting the girls out while eventually getting Frank.
    • James and Natalie come in and talk a bit about Bronte. James said she hurt his feelings because she just walked by him.
    • Natalie tells Paulie that Bronte had a crush on him (duh)
  • 8:00pm – Frank is in the living room chatting with Gidget.
    • Tiffany leaves the DR and he asks if she had a rough session. Couldn’t hear if she replied, but sounds like not.
    • Michelle comes in and tries to lie about the vote, but Frank doesn’t even entertain it. He tells her it’s ok to flip, it’s part of the game. No hard feelings
  • 8:15pm – Tiffany is in the HN room with Nicole and Z. She is playing her sister’s sympathy card “why was I even the target??”
    • tiffany
    • Meanwhile, James is talking to Da’Vonne in the safari room about how much of a risk it was to keep Tiffany
    • Day warns James that they’re putting up Natalie, but Tiffany is the target. He sighs
    • James says it was bad to bring Paul into the conversations. He is no longer just a pawn, he’s part of the group
    • Paul and Paulie come in and Paul says that he’ll put himself up if he wins roadkill (as a pawn)
    • Paulie mentions how Frank tried harder because Tiffany was still in the house (duh). James is agreeing it wasn’t a good idea
    • Paulie is sitting around basically doing a ‘I told you so’ about Tiffany (because he initially did).
    • It’s hilarious watching them have buyers remorse on their eviction. Especially since it took about 10 minutes for her (Tiff) to stir stuff up with Frank after the HoH competition

I need to step away from the computer for a few minutes. Blood sugar issues. I’ll pause the feeds and resume this discussion shortly. Also note – I am going to a birthday party tomorrow night. Hopefully I have someone available to cover the roadkill and all that stuff. I’m still looking for writers. Contact me here if you’re interested in contributing.  Another thing, in order to pay said writers, I am accepting donations. You can read about that here.

  • 9:30pm – Back. Man, when that hits, I can’t focus or really doing anything. Become completely useless, or as Big Brother calls it – Natalie
    • I paused the feeds, but Windows was like… “Hey, Steve is not feeling well, this is a perfect time to force an update because he can’t stop me! Muwahaha”. Damn you, Windows 10.
    • Paulie, Paul, Corey and Frank are in the safari room chatting.
    • The Pauls leave, and Corey is chatting with Frank alone.
    • Corey is using the ‘Bronte was spreading rumors’ excuse.
    • Nicole comes in, sits down for a minute and gives Frank and Corey weird looks. She has a terrible poker face
    • Corey – “It’s not a big deal. We can still get out Tiffany”.. Frank – “It is a big deal because there are people I can’t trust”
    • Nicole leaves to change, comes back with the guilty conscious worried Frank thinks he flipped.
    • Bridgette comes in and Frank tells her that he thinks Natalie voted out Bronte because she was doing some spins after she left the DR
    • In the other room, Paulie is chatting with James about Natalie. Natalie has been acting cold to James since the eviction, so Paulie said if she’s going to act that way, he’ll cut her sooner than later
  • 10:35pm – Frank is talking to Bridgette about who voted. They know Day, Michelle, and Z were 3. He is still thinking Nicole told the truth, but I have a feeling she won’t be able to hold her lie long
  • 11:15pm – The house died down, they’re all eating and waiting for HoH room. This means time for bed. Have a busy day tomorrow

Overnight in the morning

    I heard Julie say the battle back was for the 1st 5 houseguest eliminated. For some reason I’ve been thinking it was the 1st 4 houseguest.

  2. Painter1

    Days mouth part 2. Just walk away girl you loose control. she can do this but needs to KEEP IN CONTROL!! Frank will get his you got the backup just walk away.

    I am starting to not like frank frank needs to go soon or he might win who do you guys want to come back into the house

  4. Avatar

    That was crazy. Did anyone notice Paulie didn’t stick to the plan and ended up voting Tiffany out instead of bronte? He told the house he would vote bronte out and didn’t. Kind of messed up bc I think it shows he’s aligned with Frank more than the others

  5. Avatar

    I didn’t like bronte at first but now I do. I hope she comes back

  6. CLangley

    Now I wonder who Pauly will put up since Bridget and Frank are safe with him.

  7. Avatar

    I agree Anna. I used to like frank but REALLY don’t like him anymore at ALL. He is clearly running the house and is a jerk

  8. Elaine

    Paulie is looking out for his game and long term. He is not operating on feelings, like Day is. That will come to bite her in the butt. Though I like Frank in the house to keep the edginess, I think Day is getting too big for her britches. I am glad that Frank is safe, cause now the “haters” will have to scramble. If Paulie is smart, Frank can take him farther than Z and the others, so keeping Frank on his side is smart. Hmmmm, who will Paulie select?? Hee hee….love it.

    • Avatar

      Lol I agree. D is doing the sameeeeeee ole crap she did last season. Why does she always crack. I like her a lot and see she was trying to hold her tongue better this season. But old habits die hard.
      I don’t like Nicole flipping and joining Frank’s team. I love the vets playing together minus frank and it sucks to see them splintering.

    • Avatar

      The thing about that is Frank is not going to keep Paulie safe because he wants all of the men out because he believes he can beat the women. Plus with that idiot Bridgett’s head being so far up Frank’s ass & hanging on his every word, she would only be so glad to help him start getting the girls out while giving Bridgidiot a bloodbath while she thanks him asking for more. Once he’s done using her dumbass he’ll slice her throat too.

    Thank you by the way for these spoilers I keep refreshing the page. You’re the best!!!!

  10. Avatar

    This game needs Frank. This game needs Day.

    You need a sneaky slickster like Frank to keep us talking. You need a Day who is fearless.

    Everyone can go. Keep these two safe until the end. I like Paulie too because he has a mind of his own.

    Michelle played well this week too.

    Everyone else is either chasing tail or laying on it.

    • Elaine

      Michelle best control her ‘tude as well though. She has been safe because others have won and kept her that way. I still see her as flip-floppy, checking each morning which way the BB wind is blowing for her conversations. Not a fan of hers, but for now she is safe, so have to work with it. At least she showed herself with a little more energy and not just “poor pity me”. Though I am not a fan of his, hope Paul can rest in some “friendship” and have a week off from the block.

    • Clairebear

      I agree. I think Paulie is starting to play a smart game. He’s realizing more than the others, and thinking long-term. He’s not as overly concerned with what everyone else is doing either.

  11. Avatar

    I really hate the way Nicole is playing. It is really cowardly.

    • Avatar

      OMG seriously. What is she doing!? I absolutely love her but this season, it’s like she has no soul and no head. She’s just flipping and flipping and has absolutely no loyalty or backbone. She’s never had a backbone, it made her still loved. But this crap she’s doing this season is disappointing. I hope she turns it around.

    • Elaine

      Steve was right on with her outfit…..huh? Little pink romper and blonde bobbing curls. Looked like she was going to skip down the street for a play date…..no doubt with a boy lol. She needs to get her act together. Frank is not such a bad player to align with if she wants to get further in the game. She has shown doubts about Day, so Nic don’t get on the dumb train and be led blindly into jury.

      • Colby

        I thought she was wearing her pj’s when I first saw that outfit. I figured out it was a dress when I saw her shoes weren’t slippers. 🙂

    • Avatar

      I agree with you, if it were not for Nicole’s backstabbing, & throwing Da’Vonne under the Bus every 2 minutes…Da’Vonne would not have an issue, or a Target on her back with Corey, Frank, Bridgette, or Paulie. You’re absolutely right, Nicole is playing a Cowardly Game, & Stupid just like she did during her Season.

      Everybody should focus on getting Frank & Bridgette Out, then go after each other

    • Avatar

      I totally agree, BBLove! I had high hopes for her and she is letting us down. Step it up, Nicole!

  12. Avatar

    Never been much of a Nicole fan. The whiny voice has always bugged me. I rooted for her when she almost made a dent in the power but then it was a womp womp when she told Derrick he was the Dan Gheesling of the house.

    • Elaine

      Derrick has been the only one in recent seasons I actually rooted for to win. I think he played an excellent game, controlling people in a likeable way (unlike Frank). And gee to convince a person (Cody) to give up 450K for you….wow! Not rooting for anyone to win this season (that could change), so I want to keep in the players that will bring on the most drama and actual game play.

      • Avatar

        Derrick was sooooo masterful. If only we can have a handful of Derricks. That would be the best. All newbies and minimal twists. Good ole fashion BB and balls to the wall.

  13. Avatar

    I don’t have the feeds, so I only know what I see from the episodes and what I read here (don’t always get to read everything) but to me there’s too many people who do nothing that are running the house. James (I know a lot of people like him) is the ultimate floater. He always “throws” comps and just does what he’s told. Da’Vonne talks a big game, and then ends up doing nothing. Z, well she’s barely even on TV, so I’m guessing she does nothing.

    And I still like Frank, although it appears I’m in the minority. He might be a jerk, but he’s also a beast. If they’re going to go after him, they better not miss. Da’Vonne missed. She’s done, if she goes up, she’s going home.

    If Paulie and Frank decided to team up they could probably run through the house with little trouble. Although they’d probably need a third, someone like Paul would probably be 100% loyal to them if they offered him the chance.

    Overall though I’m just glad that we don’t seem to be hearing “I don’t want to get blood on my hands” 75 times per episode like we have the last few seasons.

    • Elaine

      Good observations. This week for a lot of them will be back-pedaling or laying low.

    • Clairebear

      I know…everyone likes James, but what is he doing, other than chatting Natalie up…? Nothing. When he found out the hospice had flipped, basically two days after it took place, it was news to him! I don’t even know if he’s aware he’s playing BB this year.

      The ultimate waste of space this season though, is Michelle. I think she’s worse that Victoria was a couple seasons back!

      I wish someone would team up with Paul beyond just making him a pawn. He’s a smart player. He knows what not to say around others, he’s loyal, and he has a good social game. He’s learning from past mistakes….use that!

      • g8trgrl4life

        I think Z is in the running for that award. Absolutely bringing nothing to the table except someone for Paulie to play footsies with.

    Stevebeans, I know you think it’s cute to use little nicknames for people but maybe stick to the actual names. I didn’t mine Van2.0 because well that one is obvious. But who the hell is Sunburn?

      • Avatar

        Awww…BIG Meech is my Fave! I certainly am going to vote her a America’s Favorite! Big Meech is the only HG that is Entertaining, and that is really playing the game, I hop she gets HOH soon.

        Are we watching the same person, Mello?

      • Avatar

        Meech is Funny as all get out, and she was the one responsible for Flipping the House to keep Tiffany. Idk, I just like her personality…she is funny!

    • Elaine

      I agree…there are enough people in the comment section that use so many of the made-up names I have to quit reading. Steve and Amy, please stick to the player names.

    • stevebeans

      Yea, not a bad idea. Maybe I’ll drop in nicknames here and there, but I’ll stick to regular names for the most part

      • Avatar

        As soon as I read “sunburn”‘ I literally lol’ed!!

      • Jenny M

        Anybody watching the CBS show should have noticed that sunburn vs. pasty white skin she was showing off! If you missed it, she was wearing a very lowcut dress, and had a bad sunburn on her upper chest while the lower part of her chest was lily white where her swimsuit had covered it. She also had very distinct white lines across her back from the suit’s straps, while the rest of her back was a lovely reddish brown from the burn.
        And yes, I also busted out laughing when I read that one!

    • Mell

      I saw diet vanessa used for tiffany and thought it was kind of funny

  15. Avatar

    The thing I don’t understand is the “Oh there’s no way Player X will put any of us up if we vote to keep them.” Why wouldn’t they? 1. It’s a game. 2. There’s very limited people that you can put up, especially with the team aspect this year.

    I could entertain that being true towards one or maybe even two people, but when Nicole is telling 7 different people that there’s no way Tiffany would put any of them up, how do none of them stop and actually do the math on the entire thing?

    • Avatar

      I was thinking the same thing. Paulie was right when he made the comment about not knowing what Tiffany will do after Frank is gone. I think they made a really bad decision tonight and the alliances are going to change a lot over the next couple of weeks.

    • Elaine

      I agree. There aren’t a lot of choices so with Nic running her mouth about who Tiff would put up or not (which she had no clue) was stupid. I think Paulie brought up that no one is safe, good job man! Keep it up!

  16. Avatar

    I hope that people speak their minds openly. I hope people grow backbones and war it out. I secretly hope the vets wave a white flag for a few weeks and pluck some dead weight. And then brawl at the end. But its wishful thinking. Showmances are the glue it seems.

  17. Avatar

    When Frank asked Day who Flipped…Day was Loyal to everyone in her so called Alliance, by telling Frank she would tell him later in the week, she had to find out. I think this was a stalling tactic for her tho…Because Frank is “still” after Paulie to put Day OTB.

    • Elaine

      I think Day should have been pissed at Frank, but a bit more quietly. Until the HOH was determined, then you unroll a plan slowly. By the way, just because one person is mad at a houseguest, doesn’t mean everyone has to be on the same wavelength. That is why I like Paulie this week, thinking for himself and his game, and making decisions based on that. Day will not hesitate to throw everyone she is aligned with this week under the bus.

      • Avatar

        I have no idea how Day got into some sort of position of power in the house? She’s not winning any comps, she’s not keeping things under wraps, and carefully playing everyone to get what she wants. She just kind of seems to have put herself as the alpha and everyone (except for Frank and Paulie) have seemed to have just accepted it.

        I just don’t appreciate the game she’s playing. Maybe it would be different if I had the feeds, but from what I see, and read, I just can’t get onboard with her.

        Now if she wanted to make a bold move, she should go to Frank and/or Paulie and try to form an alliance. And not some 7 or 8 person alliance, but 3 people. Cause even though I don’t respect Day’s game, so far, I still think she’s a better player than Natalie, Michelle, Nicole, James, Z etc.

      • Avatar

        I believe Big Brother calls Day a “Strong Player” as far as with her Voicing her Opinions are concerned! You can’t deny that Day has Strong Opinions. That is why I believe Nicole & Frank want Da’Vonne out before Jury, because she can persuade people with her Opinion.

      • Clairebear

        Day is now turning into a slightly less ego-centric Joz. I was rooting for her because she was playing a better, more controlled game than her season, but now she’s getting messy. If it’s not victim mode, it’s angry tantrum mode. Not smart.

    PAUL is a Pawn who is playing both sides of the House, by floating to were the Power is, I don’t trust him at all.
    BRIDGETTE is Frank’s Side Kick, with a creepy laugh. Aka…Cabbage Patch Kid.
    FRANK is a Bully.
    NICOLE is playing a dumb cowardly game, I’m disappointed in her.~Showmance
    DAY wears her emotions on her sleeves.
    ZAKI is a pretty girl, but is an Informant, & a Floater in a Showmance.
    JAMES is a love sick Puppy.~Showmance
    PAULIE is a good Player, but talks to much. ~Showmance
    COREY is on the show for business reasons, don’t reall care for him ~Showmance
    NATALIE Cheerful Cheerleader, & far too Flirt.~Showmance
    TIFFANY is her Sister all over.
    MICHELLE, I hope she wins the whole game…Big Meech is the Bomb! Love her.

    • Clairebear

      To me, Paul wouldn’t have to float if anyone actually trusted him. I think he’s playing a good game for what they’re allowing him to play.

      Michelle is the ultimate floater. When I watch the show, I feel like she’s not even in the house, she’s rarely shown. To me that says she’s not doing anything in the house.

    • Avatar

      See I see Paul as having to float because he aligned with the wrong people at the start and now is still getting stuck in the crossfire because of it. But he’s won a competition and has become someone who no one in the house seems to even think of, it’s just he’s going up as the pawn. If someone actually made a move to align with him, because of what he’s been through so far, they’d probably get a 100% loyal person.

      Other than that I agree with everything except Michelle, I don’t think she does anything either. She gets by because she has Frank and Paulie on her team and that immunity.

    Day has got to go!!!

    • Avatar

      I almost want her to stay in for a while just for entertainment’s sake. Things might be a lot more boring without her in there stirring the pot all the time. I wouldn’t mind her going at some point, though.

  20. danmtruth

    I must admit Paulie is growing on me He is keeping a clear head Along with that Paul Bunyan beard is playing strong Not afraid of the block It Sounds like Paulie is focused on Tiff/Van2.0

  21. danmtruth

    The one thing that vote has done is it has gotten Frank thinking big time He is now isolated with Bridget Now Bridget has gone all in with Frank She is claiming Nat is shady But Frank is torn on how the votes fell He feels he can still trust Nichole and Corey

  22. Avatar

    I wasn’t a fan of Bronte. Not that I had anything major against her, but I just felt she was a “meh” houseguest. And I couldn’t stand her voice, but that’s beside the point. I admit I did start to feel genuinely bad for her during her interview, though. She was handling the eviction with grace, but there were a few times you could see it looked like she really wanted to cry. Now I feel like I wouldn’t mind her coming back in. I just wonder if her being so sugary sweet was just a facade, because there were a few moments in the house where she seemed like she could be pretty scrappy and maybe not as nicey-nicey as she seems. I could be wrong, though.

  23. Avatar

    I just hope they give paul a break from being a benchwarmer and not put him on the block. But since Frank is safe and Paulie is HoH and thinking strategic I would put Nicole and Dayvonne. Then whoever wins Roadkill could put maybe Corey or even James that might be interesting or another interesting scenario put James and Natalie on together and then the third nominee could be Nicole or Corey.

    • Jenny M

      I can’t stand Corey and his vacant stare. Would love to see him on the block. And I’m so annoyed with Nicole for acting like a 13 year old girl and throwing away her whole game on “the best looking guy she’s ever met”. UGH. I have no idea what she sees in him. I thought he was goofy looking and was surprised when she thought he was so hot. It would be fun to see those 2 on the block together.

  24. Avatar

    on the other hand if they evict Paul his other minions won’t have someone to align with because let’s face it the odds of Glenn or Bronte winning the battle back is very slim aka Victor or Jozea or possibly Paul if they finally get him out but if you leave Paul in the house and Victor or Jozea wins the battle back chances are they will realign with Paul.

  25. Shivani33

    It looks like Paulie is set on nominating Tiffany. Frank told him that he wants Da’Vonne and Tiffany gone and doesn’t care which one goes first. Paulie is also considering Natalie as a possibility for the block. His reasoning about her is that she doesn’t act as if she cares about the game, so why keep her around just playing house with James? Paulie so far seems reluctant to be the HOH who nominates Day, maybe because he still wants her around to go after Frank later, and maybe also because of Zakiyah. Meanwhile, Nicole is protecting her position by planting herself as firmly as possible in Frank’s good graces. Bridgette, however, isn’t buying it. Often when Nicole is schmoozing up to Frank, Bridgette looks like she’s smelling some rotten fish.

  26. Avatar

    I don’t see Paulie nominating Day. Paulie is close to Z who is close to Day. Day is also close to Michelle. Perhaps Paulie, Z, Day, and Mich will form a mini 4. Corey and Nicole would be good additions to that alliance, but I don’t trust Nicole.
