Great. Just before the show starts, Nicole is on the feeds crying in bed with Corey next to her. What is going on? It seems that he made some joke that hurt her feelings and she is having a mini meltdown. It was either a fat dig, or she said something, and he replied in front of others that she was showing her true colors. She’s telling him that it’s not a big deal, but Corey is making it into a competition of who has said meaner things to each other. He told her that her crying is making him look like a bad guy. He’s such a comfort. (Sarcasm.)
But the show is starting now, and I will have to find out what’s going on later. By the way, James and Natalie had a long discussion earlier today about James’ hurt feelings and their relationship. Cracks are starting to come out with all the showmances.
But, first with the show! It starts off with the HOH competition in progress with the eggs and the chicken coop. I will spoil for you. Victor won. Meanwhile, BB shows us a clip before the live eviction of what went down with Michelle’s campaigning hours before the eviction.
James was talking to Nicole about the vote and realized that Nicole had flipped. She was going to vote out Michelle. James goes back and tells Michelle. Natalie says that she needs to go talk to NiCorey and get them to flip back.
Michelle talks to Corey first. She is crying. He says that he will vote however, he doesn’t care. Thus leaving the onus on Nicole. Michelle goes to Nicole. Nicole lies and says that she will vote however Corey wants. Michelle tells her what Corey said and Nicole is pissed and calls Corey in. He asks what he did now. She tells him not to make it look like it was all her decision. She then tells Michelle that she is voting strategically and not emotionally. Not to take it personally. We all saw how that worked out at the live eviction. Michelle told Nicole that if Nicole didn’t think that Paul is a threat then she is crazy!
Back at the HOH comp, James lets us know that his alliance with NiCorey is over. Corey puts his first egg in the “have” basket. This upsets Nicole because she doesn’t want the other houseguests thinking that they feel too comfortable because it will put a target on their back.
After 20 minutes of BB showing us the comp, the show goes to commercial and I switch the feeds back on. Nicole is outside, alone with Victor, talking about nothing important. I guess she pulled herself together. I turn back to the show.
Victor finally wins at the 8:25 mark. His 9th comp win. The houseguests all go back into the house and Victor is celebrating in the bumper car room. He is going to show how loyal he is to NiCorey by keeping them safe this week. After all, Corey did give him the $5,000.00 bribe. The rest of the Final Four come into the room to celebrate with him and he begs them to win the veto this week.
Meanwhile, James and Natalie are in the bathroom discussing how they know they will be going on the block this week.
Nicole is back in the bumper room talking about how good Natalie is at comps. She knows Victor wants James gone for revenge for voting Victor out. Nicole wants Natalie gone because, well, Natalie is a girl. Nicole is starting to work on the boys to get her way.
BB now shows us Michelle leaving with Pablo, the blow up pelican. I was actually happy that she took him. I wonder if the DR gave her the idea to take him because they were as sick of Pablo as I was. BB shows Paul giving a good-bye message to Pablo as if he was an evicted houseguest. It was cute, but it could have been better.
Um. I normally don’t interrupt my writers, especially when I generally do a little blurb at the end of these, but as a Paul fan, and by extension a Pablo fan, I think that their relationship, was the best gay showmance in the house. So for those reasons I give you not one, but two tributes to best showmance of #BB18. First, the footage from the show.
And then a more fitting tribute. Grab your tissues…
Apologies… please carry on, Lime Brain…
Victor and Paul get together in the HOH room. They talk about how they are loyal to each other. They call themselves the sitting ducks. #SittingDucks NiCorey joins them and they start making fun of how small Nicole’s home town is. That the school is so small that it only needs one page for its yearbook. Ha. Ha.
The next day, James and Natalie discuss how they betrayed Victor and Paul. They each want to use the veto on the other if they happen to win it. Their reasoning: James says he has already won because he met her. Natalie is afraid to be in the house alone without her best friend. Awww!
Corey sleep talks. BB shows Corey asleep in a bumper car repeating, “Harry Potter” over and over again. He’s busy dreaming about Harry Potter while the other houseguests are having nightmares about Big Brother. What does this all mean? I guess he’s not too worried about winning the half million dollars.
At some point, James goes up to the HOH room to talk with Victor and let it all out and apologizes. James has started to check out of the game. He tells Victor about his final four with NiCorey. Victor asks if this deal was before or after getting Paulie out. (Damn that Paulie!) James tells him it was after. Victor tells James that he feels that James and Natalie used him and his HOH to get Paulie out. James is putting all the blame on him and defending Natalie. NiCorey just has to walk in at that point and shuts the conversation down and James leaves.
Nicole asks what they were talking about and Paul tells them about the deal NiCorey had with James and Natalie. Nicole lies and said there was no deal. Victor says it doesn’t matter. Damn that bribe!
On to the Nomination Ceremony. Victor nominates James and Natalie. He tells Natalie that she is the pawn this week. That James was the deciding vote last week, so Victor is putting James up and hopes he goes home.
Afterwards, James tells us that he screwed up Natalie’s game and that he’s trying to set things right. It’s the Texas code or something like that. I wonder if Corey has ever heard of it. It looks like poor James has been crying. Meanwhile, everyone in the house has been gloating something terrible all week.
Victor, just wait til Nicole slithers up and bites you in the butt!
And that’s the end of the show.
In real BB House time, Paul and NiCorey have pretty much convinced Victor to let them vote out Natalie this week because she is better at comps. But, nobody is allowed to tell James or Natalie who is going because they want to “shit on them” all week to keep James rattled and do horrible in the comps.
James has been coming to the realization that there might not be a real relationship with Natalie after the house and he is one sad puppy dog to watch. Natalie and James had a long talk today and worked most things out. James was really hurt that when they were sleeping, Natalie took his hand off her leg, among other things.
So, James just wants to have a good last week in the house and try to be happy. Well, around 2 am bb time this morning, Paul calls James up to the HOH room to talk to him and Victor about who told Natalie that Paul was going after James a few weeks ago. James says that he is being straight up and he has nothing to hide anymore and that it was Nicole. Twice. For some reason, they start telling James that Natalie was throwing James under the bus today. They say they don’t want to put a wedge in their relationship, but they are really pouring salt in James’ wounds. James looks like he is going to break down and cry and he starts blubbering about all the personal stuff he talked with Natalie about.
Paul and Victor quickly shut him up, because they don’t care and don’t want to hear about it. James leaves. When he goes out and sees Natalie by the hot tub she asks him what is the matter. She says he looks like he’s seen a ghost.
Back in the HOH room, Victor and Paul are really trashing Natalie. Victor does believe that Natalie’s volunteerism is real, because there are too many details. For some reason, they don’t seem to care that Nicole was the one that told Natalie that Paul was going after James.
Victor and Paul do plan to tell NiCorey about the conversation though, before James tells them. They are trying to find the right way to tell them so it doesn’t get Nicole riled up. They also plan on “shitting” on Natalie this week.
I’m starting to root for James now. Paul and Victor are getting to ugly for me now and I blame Paul for influencing Victor.
Hey y’all, it’s TT! The funniest thing for me on the live feeds was Corey being mad that Nicole was talking about how dumb he is i the DR. The feeds last night begin with Nicole and Corey playing dominoes. Nicole accuses Corey of playing dominoes “strategically.” Then she decides she is going to play dominoes “strategically.” How the hell else do you play dominoes or cards or any game? If only NiCorey were playing Big Brother strategically, they might have a chance. Dumb and Dumber.
Oh and Corey has pretty much told his true love Victor that he doesn’t want a relationship with Nicole outside the house. #PumpandDump
So, you might be wondering about BB Tooms and his awesome videos. BB Tooms is a Big Brother legend. Back in the olden days before drones and all that fancy stuff you whippersnappers have now, rapid Big Brother fans would throw things over the wall of the set on the Big Brother Studio. They would also fly planes over the house with messages trailing behind. Ah, the good old days. Well, in 2014 during Derrick’s season, BB Tooms took a bullhorn over to the studio lot and screamed that we hate Caleb, we love Zach and that He Who Shall Never Be Named Her, of the pink hair, is a fuck face. And for that, he is LEGENDARY. You can follow him on Twitter here and on Youtube here.
