Who’s got the golden (round trip) ticket? This week we saw the Big Brother 18 house get exactly what a majority wanted, Frank & Bridgette on the Block – but.. depends on who leaves, they may just walk right back in with this newest twist.

I was watching the Live Feeds at the right time on Monday watching everyone scramble around the house looking for clues – and eventually they all got into the secret room and one lucky player has a buy back into the game. But how that will all play out is still to be seen.

There has to be some sort of rules on when this ticket will stop working. If you are the last person evicted (3rd place) and have the RT ticket, does that mean you go back in and the jury will vote for you to win??? We will find out later – BUT FIRST – let’s see who gets Bacon & who get’s Tofu this week!

James Huling – 5 strips of Bacon – James won a long grueling HoH just like he did last year. In the process, he made a promise not to put people up, just like he did last year. He then went on to nominate the people he promised safety to, JUST LIKE LAST YEAR. The difference is James was in the minority last year – putting up people in the majority. That started the process that sealed his fate. This year, he is in the majority and put up the 2 people everyone else in the house wanted up. He will go back to the general population next week with the most blood on his hands so far this season (getting Frank out), but there should be no negative ramifications and Natalie & him can go back to laying low for a few more weeks.

Victor Arroyo – 4 strips of Bacon – you gotta give Victor a lot of credit this week, winning 3 rounds of the Battle Back to make his way back into the house – and instead of coming in and causing chaos, he took a page from Paul’s week 2 playbook – and basically sat back and let the others tell him what to do. He is now safe this week, and he is a big threat that could win an HoH soon and lets hope that’s what he shakes things up.

Da’Vonne Rogers – 3 strips of Bacon – as close as Da’Vonne was to going home last week, she took a step back this week and tried to mend fences & starting to see the bigger long term picture on how the game is played. Frank was doing all he could to get her out this week despite having no power, and she did not go off this time. Great damage control week Day – now just stop with the name calling that you were so opposed to when it was done to you.

Michelle Meyer – 2 strips of Bacon – Michelle has a deep rooted hatred towards Bridgette, which we found out was spawned by jealousy over Frank. She went out this week and won the PoV – and as much as she wanted to use it on Frank to guarantee Bridgette gets evicted, she listened to the others and decided it would be bad for her game. She is still a catty mean girl, but gained some confidence by winning that Veto, and could be setting herself up in a good place moving forward. She just needs to be a little more self aware.

Natalie Negrotti – 2 strips of Bacon – Natalie continues to gain the trust of everyone in the house, and they underestimate her as a player. Most of the people think she is harmless, which she is, but as the other bigger player’s games start to implode she will be in a good spot. I would not compare her to BB16 Victoria yet.

Paulie Calafiore – 1 strip of Bacon – this was a decent week for Paulie as he was not as “dictatory” as he was in the past couple of weeks. Perhaps it was because this week was a layup for him & his allies as James did the dirty work they all wanted. Paulie knows after Frank & Bridgette are gone he may become a target, so his great social game this week has helped shrink the target… for now.

Now on to the negative marks side of this week’s player rankings.
