The Big Brother season that would not end is still dragging on – and yet ANOTHER chance for someone to come back into the game happens this week. Don’t get me wrong, I love Big Brother and love that we still have about a month to go. But this current group sleep more than they are awake. Every season there are a few Houseguests that are horizontal more than vertical – but cmon people WAKE UP!

Corey & Nicole are the worst offenders of this on Big Brother 18. At least they are doing *ahem* other stuff than just sleep. I am sure they will be mortified to find out what was on the live feeds. Nicole should know better – but, that’s the game she is willing to play this season. More on this later – BUT FIRST – let’s hand out some Bacon & Tofu

Natalie Negrotti – 5 strips of Bacon – I have been saying it for weeks now, Natalie is the one Houseguest that is most aware of what is going on around her. She finally won an HoH – and had the opportunity to make a safe move, or a bold move. She chose the latter and convinced Michelle to follow suit. She also controls James, which is not really that easy. She is the one that caught on to Paulie manipulating the house, and she also was the first one to realize that Paul was manipulating as well. Natalie is now in the drivers seat and controls the house.

Paul Abrahamian – 4 strips of Bacon – have we ever seen a player go from the bottom to the top this many times in a season? Once a “sitting duck” he worked his way into the majority, then fell out of favor, but then won Veto to save himself. His #1 ally Victor may be walking out the door this week, and people may have caught on to his game, but he’s still there and will battle hard the rest of the way. He has wins to back it up & if he gets power again, will not be afraid to make tough decisions. With a juror set to come back this week, he could probably mend fences with Paulie if he comes back, or go back to running the house if Victor comes back. If Bridgette comes back, he will get her on his side as well.

Victor Arroyo – 2 strips of Bacon – usually the person that is set to leave ends up with Tofu – but not Victor. He has been a good sport about being put up and knows it’s a longshot for him to stay. he is waiting for the last minute to try and sway James to keep him, which is smart, since James cannot make a decision and keep it for more than 12 hours. We know Michelle wants to keep him, so he must try and just convince Natalie as well. That’s not going to be easy, but if he can get through to them, then Corey will walk out the door. Oh, and give this kid an extra piece of bacon for trying to keep the house clean!

They can’t all be bacon winners this week. The countdown continues on the next page…
