Oh dear lord – the Big Brother 18 season is halfway done – and I am sure I speak for many of you that unless these people step up their games soon, they should just hand Paulie the $500K check so we can move on with our lives and start prepping for BB19. Although we are starting to see some dissension in the ranks – no one is willing to do anything about it.

Note: I wrote these rankings based on what was happening inside the house as of 8/10/16 – Midnight BB time – hopefully the recent current actions after that by Houseguests can change my outlook.

To be honest – I was considering giving everyone Tofu this week – because there have not been many stand outs playing well. Well, there are a couple, but they also have done bonehead things to knock them down a little. So my usual format to why people get what will change a little.

I am so looking forward to this week’s Big Brother Double Eviction episode – BUT FIRST – lets give out some bacon & tofu.

Natalie Negrotti – 5 strips of Bacon – she knows everything going on in the house. Unfortunately, she does not seem to know how to get the rest to act on it. Natalie is also working her way up the ranks as the most popular HG this year among fans – so in this down week – she gets the top spot.

Bridgette Dunning – 4 strips of Bacon – wasn’t Bridgette public enemy #2 just 2 weeks ago? She did slip back into the shadows a little. Her name keeps getting thrown around as “replacement” nominee – but she took a big step forward this week teaming back up with her Spy Girl Natalie. If the bigger threats keep going after each other – Bridgette could find her way in the final 6 pretty easily. From there, you play in every Veto – so you can protect yourself.

Corey Brooks & Nicole Franzel – 1 strip of Bacon – I am not giving them each 1 strip of bacon, I am giving them one to share since it seems like they are one person. Corey may have some things going on without Nicole – but he wont do anything unless he runs it past her first. And Nicole – well, let’s just say she is lucky other people are doing her dirty work cause she would be exposed and become a target.

To the rest of the Big Brother 18 Houseguests – here comes the Tofu!

Victor Arroyo – 2 strips of Tofu – Da’Vonne gave you a heads up that the rest of the house is coming for you – and what do you do with that info? Tell everyone & do not listen to her warnings. When he was fighting his way back into the house – he said he was going to go after Paulie – and now that he won HoH – he teams up with Paulie? When he shows up in the jury house soon, the first words he says to Day is “I shoulda listened to you”
