Diary Room: Adam Poch’s Player Rankings: Big Brother 18 – Week 4| July 20, 2016 at 12:00 PM EDT
The Big Brother 18 Houseguests have been in the house for over a month now – and alliances have come & gone several times.Last week was pretty memorable as we had the biggest house flip since Dan’s Funeral! We saw enemies now become allies, and the veterans finally publicly turn on each other.
That has made this a very exciting week so far, and the week is still not over yet. We may see another flip tomorrow night, and then the whole house dynamic will change when someone battle’s their way back into the house. But first… here are the Bacon/Tofu rankings for week 4.
Tiffany Rousso – 5 strips of Bacon – Ok, I am going off my normal criteria for the rankings this week and awarding the person who is probably (for now) going home the top honors. Yes she did win the Roadkill comp and put up Corey originally & then Da’Vonne – so that was a great move. But that’s not why I am giving her this much bacon. Last week I gave her the Tofurkey of the Week for wearing her sunglasses all day & all night – and this week she took them off. PLUS she did stir the pot so much and got the whole house in a frenzy. She was saved last week after giving a pretty epic speech calling out “The dictator & the Cabbage Patch Kid” – and then teamed up with them this week to try and save her hide. This is the kind of gameplay that we as fans love to see. It may be all for naught, but maybe, just maybe she will be saved again and make for another exciting week.
Michelle Meyer – 4 strips of Bacon – since I’m going crazy with the rankings this week – may as well keep it up. Michelle’s stomp after the eviction last week was pretty over the top – so that needs to be rewarded, Also for having terrible sunburn and wearing an outfit that showed it off on live TV was also pretty amusing. As far as her gameplay – she is doing a great job of collecting information on the others and regurgitating only certain info back to people. While she does have quite the mean streak, Michelle seems to have the ability to bob and weave a few more weeks and as the numbers dwindle down she will have to start winning comps to get to the end. Like her or not, she is playing the game very well.
Corey Brooks – 4 strips of Bacon – I say it all the time, there is no better feeling in the Big Brother house as when you win Veto while on the block. The best nights sleep you get is when you know there is no way you are going home. He also is starting to think on his own and bring ideas to others instead of just being a “yes man.” If he could just get Paul, Paulie, and Frank into an alliance – they could be an even stronger Brigade than we had on Season 12. They would all have their side alliances (except Paul – he would be the Meow Meow of the group) and could run through the house!
Paul Abrahamian – 3 strips of Bacon – after Paulie won HoH again this week, Paul did what every good floater does, and started kissing his ass. But that’s not why he gets bacon this week, I am rewarding him for channeling his inner BB15 Andy. Game conversations happen on both sides of the house, and Paul is usually sitting in on it. A few people are starting to catch on to it, but no one has Paul near the top of their hit list. Tiffany called herself a Free Agent this week, but Paul is the real free agent. It does not take much convincing to get him to change his mind. He could be the final vote needed to save Tiffany this week, but he will need Paulie’s approval first.
Paulie Calafiore – 2 strips of Bacon – during Tiffany’s speech, she said that dictators usually do not fare well on Big Brother. She was referring to Frank, but after winning his 2nd HoH of the season, he has taken over the dictator role. The first time he was HoH he was a little more democratic. This time, not so much. But he still has an army of people that want to work with / for him – so despite his 3 competition wins in the last 3 weeks (2 HoH, 1 PoV) – he is not talked about as a big threat.
Frank Eudy – 1 strip of Bacon – Frank knows all about having the entire house gunning for you – and he knows there are people coming after him again. But that does not get him down and hide under the covers, he continues to go to work looking for a way to get out who he wants out and make new allies to protect himself. Even though Boogie was his coach on S14, he is trying to take something from Dan’s game. Will it work? Who knows, but the longer he is there, the better his chances of winning competitions to keep himself safe.
Read on for the back half of the list as the remaining BB18 HGs received a negative ranking this week.
