The Big Brother 18 Jury definitely surprised a lot of viewers with their decision to give the win to Nicole Franzel over Paul Abrahamian this week during the season finale and it certainly left me scratching my head. So what happened and how did they make that choice?
With the Big Brother 18 cast and its Jurors now out in the wild answers are starting to arrive. TV Guide caught up with each of the nine voters and asked what was going through their minds and what guided their votes.
“Your boy” Paul Abrahamian may have made it to the Big Brother 18 Final 2 before getting burned by the Jury but he “never cared.” Now the Big Brother runner-up is on his way to The Bold & The Beautiful but he isn’t going there without his fellow Sitting Duck and this season’s Favorite Houseguest, Victor Arroyo.
Each recent season of Big Brother has seen a few of its more popular characters given the opportunity to shine again on the small screen with a trip over to B&B, a fellow CBS program, and this year the lucky few appear to be Paul and Victor.
We’re just days away from the start of Big Brother Over The Top next Wednesday (Sept. 28th) and the BBOTT cast reveal is coming even sooner than that so let’s do a quick rundown of what we know so far about the series and what’s just around the corner for the new season of Big Brother.
Over The Top is the an online-only variation of Big Brother US and will be set in the same house, following the same basic structure of HoH, noms, Vetoes, & evictions, but there will be several major differences separating the BBOTT version from what we watch on TV each summer. Speaking of which, don’t worry, Big Brother 19 will return to CBS TV in the summer of 2017!
Big Brother Over The Top, the new online series version of our regular Big Brother summer addiction, will premiere next Wednesday, Sept. 28th and now CBS is revealing exactly when everything will be going down each week including nominations, Veto, evictions, and more.
With no packaged episodes on TV and no blackouts to hide events like nomination ceremonies and Veto competitions we’re going to need to know the Big Brother Over The Top schedule to guide us on when to jump on our Feeds and watch everything as it happens. Yes, everything will be shown on the Feeds with BBOTT.
James Huling was voted out last night from the Big Brother 18 house falling just short of the Jury deliberations when his efforts to seal a F2 deal from the sidelines didn’t work out. He didn’t get a chance to win Big Brother this year but he did get to help make that big decision.
Now with the season over James was free to discuss his game and experience on BB18. I spoke with him today about choosing the winner, what went wrong for him in the final week, that time he shot Natalie’s game in the foot, and more. Read on for what James had to say about the season.
Paul Abrahamian came a long way this season on Big Brother 18 after starting as the loud mouth target before working his way to end the season as the, oh wait, loud mouth target! Well he kept many of us entertained and even if he lost to Nicole, Friendship.
It was a surprise outcome for me when Da’Vonne gave her vote and the game to Nicole last night, but that’s the way things go when you take who was likely the wrong opponent with you to the F2. However, Paul doesn’t think he made the wrong choice and now believes he would have lost to James as well if he couldn’t even beat Nicole’s game with how this Jury ended up making their decision.
Read on to find out what Paul told me about his experience on Big Brother, his moves, and those final Jury votes.
