Wednesday Overnight Report


Before I get to the highlights from last night, I have some thoughts on Wednesday’s episode. Has Paul’s over acting hit a higher level? The over the top excitement when the show first came on and the fake crying are way too much! (His tears started when he got paranoid about being seen as the bad guy after his comic)  He fake cries AND fake laughs. I’ll be glad when I don’t have to hear “ehhh hehh hehh” anymore! (Sorry, don’t know how to spell that sound) I also don’t know who is a worse fake crier- Paul or Xmas.  Paul saying dramatically “I can’t help everyone, I can’t save everyone” while crying in the DR was ridiculous. Remember…the DR’s are for the viewers and not the jury! I’m not writing his ass a check so I don’t need all the dramatics!

I won’t even get started with Alex and the “spunky competitor who was wronged” edit. I’ll leave my fairwell comments about her with her own words this season which were “Paul can’t break his friendship because he can’t lie in front of America,” “friendship is his brand and it would totally destroy his fan base if he lied,” and “the friendship bracelets are the whole reason he came back this season.” Girl, bye to you and those stupid cat ears!

I admit I was anxious to hear Alex give her veto speech because I’ve been wondering why Paul was so butt hurt and what she said that was so terrible. It was just your basic guilt trip. He was making it sound like she was up there laying into his mother with insults or something. I also can’t decide which was more pathetic- Alex asking for AFP in her eviction speech or Paul asking for a jury vote in a good bye message. (Alex, I think)  They really are somewhat similar….except he plays BB and she doesn’t. I think Alex should have gotten to hear her good bye messages (for my own selfish reasons) since Julie ended up asking the hg’s questions at the end of the show to fill time. Maybe the hoh comp ended faster than they thought it would. (See, I can be fair) Was I the only one annoyed with Pauls fist pumping during the hoh comp? Is he hitting up Jersey Shore right after BB ends? I only ask because everything about Paul annoys me this year and I can acknowledge that so it could just be my issue.  Maybe I can find a support group after the season ends. (Hello, my name is Melissa and I can’t stand Paul) – Note from Steve: Only thing more annoying than Paul’s fist pump was Christmas doing it to root for him. At least he was winning the comp when he pumped his fist


Julie looked nice on the show and her black shirt was very cool while still being kind of bizarre. (not really a fan of asymmetrical necklines) I saw an interview where Julie talked about Les Moonves (her husband and head of CBS) coming home and telling her they weren’t going to negotiate with her and her attorney over her salary for Celebrity BB. He said she had to take less because it would be a shortened season. You know, just your typical husband and wife dinner conversation that we can all relate to right? Her attorney also happens to be her brother-in-law, Les Moonves brother. I think the interview was with THR but can’t remember for sure- it gave me a laugh. (My brother is a Chiropractor and my brother-in-law is my husband’s twin so I’ll be on my own if I need to negotiate something with the hubby. We’d only be hashing out who has to make the dinner anyway so I don’t suppose I’ll need council for that.)

Paul really did get screwed with his comic this year and it may be the worst one I can remember. I wonder how closely Xmas looked at hers because once she notices they gave her a camel toe, (sorry if that’s offensive to anyone but it’s true) she may not like it as much. That doesn’t happen on accident because you have to draw it on there!  I thought they nailed it by calling her a lunatic too. Kevin wasn’t impressed with being a merman/mermaid either. Ok, I’m rambling at this point so I’ll move on to the overnight update. There wasn’t much to it. Paul did a little talking to the camera so I’ll start with that. It’s always been my favorite part of the feeds with any house guest. Returning players and some new ones know they can use it for PR purposes to put a spin on things so sometimes you have to sift through a bit of BS but for the most part, it lets us know where their heads are at.  We didn’t need it very much this year because we already knew. Team Paul was where everyone was at with their strategy.

  • Paul talked about how much harder he worked this year and how he had to play completely different from before. He said he was always working, had conversations constantly and was always staying on top of everyone so he could control everything. (true) He said he missed his family and hoped they were proud and mentioned the events he’d missed this summer while being in the house like his dads surgery and a close relatives wedding. He said he’d had fun and would do it again. He wondered what fans thought of his game and whether or not they respected it and were entertained. He said that he “never cared” but admitted that he still thought about it. He ended up saying that if he wins, it won’t matter. He also said he came into the house with no strategy and had half the house hating him. He’s still talking about never “seeing the block” and it’s obvious this will be a part of his final two sales pitch.
  • Xmas joined Paul during his bragging session. Always a team player, she began to brag on him too. She told him that he doesn’t give himself enough credit. She also hoped Victor would be at the finale party. They both talked about how hard he’s had it this year and he talked about how he had to play alone in BB18. They both think Kevin is accepting that he can’t win and has given up. Xmas admits she was high much of the time this summer.
  • Xmas and Josh have a chat in the kitchen about random things. They start asking each other if they have speeches prepared and are talking about Kevin’s upcoming eviction. Xmas tells Josh she isn’t going to go off on Kevin and is going to keep it about everyone’s track record and who deserves to be there when she votes him out. She says she’ll point out that he hasn’t won anything. (too bad Paul didn’t hand pick a couple comps for Kevin to take) They also talked about her business and what a badass she is in general.
  • Paul tells Josh he thinks he’ll have 300k to 400k followers when he gets out, Josh will probably have 100k and Xmas may have 1 million. (he’s right, I saw where Paul has 337k for anyone who cares) They agree Xmas could beat them both in the F2 because she hasn’t ticked many people off.
  • Paul mentioned he thought he would be out pre jury. He also said he knew his friends missed him and were sad they had to share him.

Jessica has been offering to give away fidget spinners for Cody votes. This girl has been campaigning hard. She was on Twitter last night telling everyone they had to have a paid account in order to vote. She’s the same person who posted her shock over Paul wanting to win the F4 hoh and said he should have waited to go for the F3 hoh so I’m not going to put much stock in what she says. (apparently she’s forgotten that he can play in both) There was some discussion about people being allowed to vote more than 20 times. I’ve read a lot of stuff saying that those votes won’t count and they’ll only count if you have a 20 vote limit but I dont know what’s accurate. There is confusion as to whether or not you have to have a paid CBS Access account or simply sign in with a regular CBS account using an email. If anyone gets to the bottom of this, please share the info. (I can’t imagine having to have a paid account to vote) I know there’s been times in the past when the voting was messed up and some votes didn’t count. Before anyone gets too worked up over the voting mix-ups, you should scroll down to the bottom of the voting page while you’re on it and click on Terms and Conditions. Once there, read section 5 called Additional Disclaimers. It’s too much to repeat on here but basically says if the computer program or voting gets messed up for any reason, they reserve the right to review the votes for accuracy and take appropriate action at their sole discretion. I’ll vote and I’m not discouraging you from voting. I’m just saying that we shouldn’t get too worked up over it if something isn’t working right. Speaking of program issues, it seems this site has had some random pop ups and things going on. I’m sure Steve’s working on it and he’ll have everything back to normal very soon if he doesnt already.  I’ll catch up with you guys this evening for the shocking/not shocking live show. If my only Thursday surprise will be what Julie is wearing, let’s hope she doesn’t disappoint! Have a great day!

    this season is officially over,im just gonna watch the finale to see peoples faces when cody is announced as americas favorite…also i really hope the jury is bitter and vote for whatever piece of sh*t is sitting next to paul

      Would be hard to fork over $500K to Christmas wouldn’t it? I would like to see it, but I don’t know.

    • Avatar

      Wow, bitter much yourself?

      Paul played the best game and deserves to win, love him or hate him, he’s played the best game.

      • Avatar

        If he doesn’t win, then obviously he didn’t play the best game, according to the jury. They are the ones who vote, not us. They are the ones who decide who played best game. If he ticked off everyone so much that they don’t vote for him, then evidently, his social game lost him votes. In that case, no, he does not deserve to win. He probably will win, but if he does not, then he didn’t play the best game.

    I can’t imagine with the way they votes “may or may not count” that you would have to pay to vote. If they’re free, it doesn’t matter. If you’re paying for them, I can see where people would want accountability. Hell, people will want accountability either way.

    I hope now that they are at this point they can just be civil to Kevin until he is voted out. After I saw that Paul said that about their estimated followers I went to check. Xmas has somewhere between 5 and 600K and Josh has less than 100K. The only one he estimated correctly was his. I have no idea how many followers he had when he went into the house so I don’t know if that’s an increase or not.

    • Mel

      I don’t know what Paul had for followers either. I was impressed at how well he guessed though if he had a lot less before the show. I’m certainly not an expert because I think the amount of people following me on Twitter is somewhere around 12 or 13. I’m a superstar!! Lol I still use Facebook for work and pretty much use Twitter for Big Brother only. I don’t even follow anyone on Twitter if it isn’t BB related.

  3. Mel

    Steve: Great point about Xmas and her fist pumping.

    It’s also been brought to my attention that what I saw as a camel toe is actually the line separating her thigh from her crotch. Sorry guys, wasn’t trying to give misinformation. Not gonna lie, I’m going to pretend she has one because it made me happier when I thought she did. Regardless, I still thought I should correct what I said.

    This could become odd if game officials step in and “select after reviewing” who gets AFP, but the entire Season has seemed plenty odd, regardless. There’s been a batch of non-playing houseguests, a few ineffectual defiant ones and Paul, the young puppeteer, who’s been providing offhand remarks of concern about his sociopathy or psychopathy. Not to worry, Paul, these could be called healthy questions. In some ways, it’s just been too alarmingly easy to run the minds of the provided sheeple. It leads to the sharp, precipitous cliff of doubt, and that’s natural.

    A brief shout-out to the youngest player, Ramses. Whether he had the tactics or not, he refused to allow Paul to get very far inside of his head. He rebelled and told Paul “you’re not the boss of me, not my father” – so to speak. I think Ramses was up for eviction because he kept a mind of his own. After watching Alex, Raven, Josh and especially Christmas (and even Kevin) half-heartedly play their asses off for a team sport to assist Paul, thank you, young Ramses. Catch that falling star!

    I just voted on CBS.com and you just have to sign in ie have an account, but you don’t have to pay for all access.

  6. Avatar

    I’m sure I am just repeating myself but ughh…I just can’t stomach much more of this season. If I hear Paul mention ONE more time about him not being on the block this year I’m going to scream!! Throw in all of his fake tears and fake laughs and it just about pushes me over the edge.

    As much as I disliked Alex, I was SOO glad to see her be super-agrressive with Paul when he kept trying to talk to her and telling her that he just had 2 points he wanted to make..but she wasn’t having any of it. Nope, nope and nope!

    The way he is just begging for jury votes is as bad, if not worse than Alex begging for AFP votes. My feelings for Paul have nothing to do with game play..it’s who he is as a person that gripes my grits!

    However, with all of that being said, no one disturbs me as much as Christmas does. I was watching some BB on YouTube this morning and lawwd help me if she isn’t just sickening with the way she agrees with everything he says, praises him like he is a world leader and her flirting..Ohhhh it’s so bad! The constant flinging of her hair and constantly posing when she is sitting next to him. Girl!!!! Have some self-dignity!! Her language has really gotten out of hand the past week as well..if I hear her say mother fu#$%r one more time I’m gonna puke!

    I haven’t investigated the voting situation but I have never, ever had to pay to vote and can’t imagine for the life of me that they would implement something like that now…CBS would get destroyed on social media if they tried to do something like that.

    Okay..I realize I am rambling – long shift at work and I’m sleep deprived. Let me just say my prayers before I go to sleep.
    “Dear Lord, I don’t like my choices for the winner of this show, but please, at least let Paul drop Christmas like a hot potato as soon as possible. Also, please show extreme close-up camera shots of her face when she realizes she is not going to the final 3.” Amen

    Hahaha! Have a great day everybody!!

    • Tinkerbell

      @shan64 I will sream if Paul says one more time – “I didn’t watch any, NONE, of my season.” He just said it again about 15 minutes ago, telling Josh and Bitch Face. Really?! Hey Paul….as you like call everyone………FOOL, stop insulting our intelligence. You know, we know, everyone in the world knows – you have absolutely watched every single second of your season……at least the parts you are in. No doubt whatsoever in my mind that the “fast forward” and “rewind” on your remote are worn put from watching your epic self. No doubt you can recite every single word that came out of your bearded lips in BB18. You are vain….beyond vain, your ego is bigger than the entire universe. Both of your arms are broken from patting yourself on the back. Just go away…..take your bitch “Ride” with you. I’m probably not going to watch the next round with the z-list people in it…..but I would watch if they would throw Paul and Christmas in the mix.

      • Avatar

        I have thought the EXACT same thing about Paul saying he hasn’t watched the while season. Not possible..not with his ego.

        TOO FUNNY about his arms being broke from patting himself on the back and too true as well!

        I doubt P & C would be on Celebrity BB as they are only celebrities in their own twisted little minds!

        By the way, who is everyone thinking about voting for AFP??
        I was leaning heavily towards Kevin up until a few weeks or so ago, but his willingness to bow to Paul is getting on my nerves.
        If I were to be honest, I want to vote for whoever would upset the majority of the houseguests the most which I think would be Cody??

      • Tinkerbell

        @shan64 I was cheering for Kevin as well…..not now. I’m not sure, but it looks like people are voting for Cody. I’m checking different sites to try to find the general consensus. So far, it seems to be Cody. Unless something changes, I’m going with Cody. I would love for it to be thrown in Paul’s face, as well as the rest of his worshippers. If Cody wins, they will lose it. If Kevin wins, that’s okay too……just not any of the vile gang members. I would vote for Ramses, Jillian, and Megan……before I would vote for any of those other losers. If nothing else, Cody proudly served our country in the Marines and in the Air Force. None of those other has beens would have made it even one single day in boot camp. I don’t care how physically strong they think they are, and how mentally sound they think they are…….they don’t have one single ounce of what it takes. They would be begging for mercy within five minutes. Since Jessica was voted out I have been watching her twitter and instagram. First she was campaigning heavily for herself. When she discovered people wanted Cody, she changed her tune…..”A vote for Cody is a vote for Jody.” In your dreams, you little nothing burger. She knows Cody is head-over-heels in love with her. If he wins AFP, she THINKS she wins. She wants that money…..and that big ring she talked about early in the season. She is going to use, abuse, and throw Cody away. When she gets what she wants, he is gone. With how she lives, and what she does, she does not want him around……only for what she can get. I hope Cody will listen to someone he trusts, and get the heck out of Dodge before Jessica has one single minute to destroy him…..because she will. For me, Cody for the win.

    • Tinkerbell

      The only reason I would watch if they threw Paul and his leech into the next mix…..to see them annihilated.

    What does it matter just end the show on Sunday why drag it out any longer. This will be my last season of watching BB. I am highly disappointed with it not being a true game show kind of a pointless exercise if the winner is predetermined and Production goes out of their way to manipulate the results.

    With the story leaking that Christmas knew Paul prior to the game and all ready had a final two deal in place and with CBS putting in the fix to ensure a Paul victory clearly this is no better than WWE. Looks real on the surface but in reality there is nothing legit or real about it.

    It is nice that CBS is careful to not call it a game show and refer to it as Entertainment to protect themselves. They mislead people to purchase the feeds. I am sure the advertisers know the game is not legit. I wonder if the contestants know that they the big prize is fixed but the small prizes like the one Kevin got are legit.

    I wonder if they told Cody…”Look before you sacrifice your entire summer and the only time you have to spend with your Daughter that this show is not on the level. You have zero chance of winning but you will make $9K and potentially $50K if you win AFP” I wonder if he would still go on the show.

    Or Megan list they are going to bully and gang up on you and embarrass you badly on the show. Do you still want to play for $3K / month?

    I guess I am as the kids say a little Salty that this show is not more legit. Maybe there should be a statement before each episode that this show is for Entertainment purposes only this is not a legit game.

    I saw the letter one of the members got back from the FCC stating that this was NOT a legit game. With Christmas slip of the lip and I am sure CBS is pissed that she would say that to Josh.

    Just give the money to Paul and end it.

    • Sassy

      I’ve been out of the loop, what letter? Can you post it on here?

      • Jannie

        It’s a letter Helen had from the FCC reiterating that Big Brother does not have to follow the same stringent rules as a game show…think “Jeopardy.”

        No, Big Brother is considered an “entertainment” show…think WWE Wrestling.

        In other words, don’t be surprised if it’s rigged.

      • Avatar

        I have been scolded by a few for saying this but this year in particular the outcome of this season has been predetermined…
        So many odd things have popped up this year I decided to do a little research……here is the result…
        This is a response from the FCC after complaints were filed in season 8……yes. Season 8:

        Thanks for contacting the FCC via the online inquiry form, with your inquiry (designated IC Number: 07-W13271938), regarding the ‘reality’ show ‘Big Brother.’ We will close your inquiry IC Number: 07-W13271938 with this response:
        Section 73.1216 of the Commission’s rules governs the broadcast of licensee-conducted contests, Le., a contest conducted by an FCC-licensed station in which a prize is offered ‘to members of the public.’ Since the show ‘Big Brother’ is conducted by a network programmer (vs. an FCC-licensed station) and does not offer a prize to members of the public, it is not regulated by the FCC.
        A “game show” in which ‘selected contestants’ (vs. ‘members of the public’) participate is governed by Section 509 of Title 47 of the United States Code (USC), and regulated by the Department of Justice. However ‘Big Brother’ does not appear to meet the definition of a “game show.” Rather, it is a ‘for entertainment only’ program, somewhat similar to professional wrestling in that it is a pseudo-contest in which the outcome is fully, or in some measure, predetermined.

      • Helen

        Again. The post was the reply to numerous complaints filed with FCC in regards to season 8!!
        The reply was NOT TO ME!!!

  8. Avatar

    I voted last night and I do not have a paid account. It did let me continue to vote more than 20 times but I assumed those weren’t counted. I just kept trying to see if it would make me stop or let me keep going and it never stopped me. It doesn’t show any kind of count to show you how many times you have voted either.

    • Avatar

      I also just saw where Jessica shared a pic on Twitter than looks like it was taken from the CBS website. It says that voting is only open CBS All Access members and that if it is allowing you to vote more than 20 times, you don’t have the right account. I personally thinks it’s BS that CBS would do it that way. Require us to pay to vote??? And allow you to keep voting without telling you your votes are counting?? Like I said, I don’t have a paid account but it let me keep voting. If it’s true that you have to have a paid account to vote, why even allow someone to think they are voting with a regular account?

      • Avatar

        **without telling you your votes *aren’t* counting

      • Avatar

        I just read through a bunch of the comments on her tweet and many people are saying that the All Access account was only needed for OTT and that the site allowing regular accounts to vote more than 20 times was some sort of gliche. So who knows. Maybe we will get clarification from CBS or something. I personally will keep voting for Kevin until someone confirms for certain that only the paid account votes are counting.

      • Mel

        I can’t see them making you pay for feeds to be able to vote either. I think some people are trying to vote thinking they’re logged into their free account and maybe they haven’t actually signed into it.

      • Avatar

        No way you have to have all access to vote. It’s never been that way. More people don’t have all access than do. Most people who watch bb don’t have the feeds!! I voted unlimited times last night and it noted my vote. In no years has it counted down your votes as u voted. When you got to 20 and tried for 21, it would then tell you that you had already reached 20 and to come back tomorrow to vote again. Like last night, I was able to vote unlimited times today. After I voted 100 times for one person, I then went to my second favorite to see what would happen, and I voted more than 40 times for that person. I then went to my husbands email and did the very same thing. Then back to mine and did the very same thing. I even accessed CBS through a different way and the same thing happened. I looked all over the site to see if there was any kind of notice saying there were problems, but didn’t find anything. I’m wondering if anyone is being cut off at 20?

  9. hogwild

    The only thing left that interest me is AFP I will be giving all my votes to Cody just to see the expression on the faces of Paul, Christmas, Josh, and Alex if he should win.

  10. Helen

    @Houseguest Doug……I want to clarify for you that the FCC reply was not to me….that was the reply in response to numerous complaints filed with the FCC in regards to season 8..,( much of the same circumstances we have complained about this season)…
    Nothing has changed in the 11 seasons that have followed….we all still watch, we all still get mad and throw socks at our tvs ( well,I do anyway) because it is what it is…..entertainment. Some years I am lucky and the winner or someone I like is sitting at the end and some years I hate the F2….
    Also remember Doug that the ultimate winner is not always who we think it is….(great example is BBOTT)….with all the help from production that Jason Roy received throughout the game, he sat in F2 and lost.

    • Mel

      Good point Helen. I try to watch for the purpose of learning the personalities, seeing how they handle pressure and how different they are from the edits they get. I had to stop watching for the purpose of seeing who was going to win a long time ago because it would have driven me crazy. Lol

      • Helen

        Me too Mel….human behavior fascinates me….sometimes the prettiest wrapped present contains the most disappointing surprise……what we see is not always what we get.

    I just had to laugh when everybody kept walking by Josh staying “stop crying”. Seriously, who cries that much? The BB house has to really mess with your head. Also, laughed my butt off when Josh’s eyes popped out of his head when he saw Devil Paul. I’m voting Cody for AFP because he at least tried to be a game player and stop the Paul show. I do feel sorry for Kevin. It has to hard being the only old person, dealing with all the young people drama. Christmas should never have been allowed to stay IMO.

  12. Avatar

    Who does Paul want out this week? I say Josh. He is the only one left even remotely capable of winning a comp. Christmas is happy to finish second place and will do whatever Paul tells her to.

    • Avatar

      Kevin will do what Paul says too. Plus he’s much weaker competitor than Josh.

    • Sassy

      I think Josh would be the smarter move, but Paul thinks he has a definite win over Josh because he made him out to be the bad guy all season. Although, I think most of the people sent to jury hate them equally, so they have a 50/50 shot.

      I can’t believe CBS kept Xmas in the game. A former addict, talking about being high all summer, which could possibly cause a relapse in her recovery is not a good look for the station…

  13. Sassy

    I stopped watching the feeds and the show almost 2 weeks ago. I just got caught up by reading this sites updates. Looks like I didn’t miss anything and could have predicted all of it. I don’t miss watching the show but may watch the finale, but not interested in watching what leads up to it. I just couldn’t do it anymore. Hoping this is not what next year will be like, if so, I will give it up forever.

    I wanted to vote for Cameron for AFP, but that is not an option. So my second choice is Cody, if for no other reason but to see the other cast members faces.

    I would not be surprised if Paul takes Kevin and Christmas to the final 3. Neither of them can beat him in a comp, so he would be guaranteed to be in the final 2. Josh could get lucky and beat him. I am still #teamanyonebutPaul, but I really don’t want to see anyone win, they are all awful people!

  14. Avatar

    Yes, I got a pop up yesterday or day b4 asking if I wanted to continue on this web site, Thought it was kind of unusual but like a dummy hit yes and got a pop-up flashing a virus …wouldn’t let me get out so turn my phone off . When I turn my phone back on it was OK but to be safe I cleared a bunch of stuff…. I am so hoping Alex does not get favorite player, the network has shown her to be so opposite of what she is.

  15. Cindy

    I totally agree with you Mell, i was super annoyed watching Paul fist pump during the HOH and the fake tears are ridiculous. Kinda makes me sick to my stomach. Is it just me or is anyone else creeped out with the way Christmas just stares at Paul constantly, reminds me of fatal attraction.

  16. Avatar

    I am not sure if anyone has brought this up, but how are the f3 comps going to work if Xmas is not medically cleared? The first one is usually endurance, so would it just be Josh and Paul competing? The second usually requires a little endurance and skill, so if Xmas can’t compete in that one either, how will that work? Would they just skip the first two comps and just go straight to the third with Paul and Josh competing for the HOH? I am just wondering what they are going to do about Xmas not being able to compete. Does anyone know?

    • Avatar

      Seems to me if Christmas can’t compete, she has to forfeit that game. But it wouldn’t matter, if Paul wants to take her. The winner chooses who to take. And josh said he would take Christmas on show yesterday. I really think it would be in Paul’s best interest to send josh home today because josh can win a comp!! Kevin can’t win anything. Actually, he could have won the revengers comp but threw it to josh, by Paul’s orders.
