We’ve got the return of our weekly Counting The Votes column with Big Brother 18’s first eviction vote coming up on Thursday night. There are three Houseguests on the Block and one HoH which leaves us with eleven votes up for grabs, but Jozea wants all twelve…

Frank Eudy counts the votes on Big Brother 18

Only two days to go before the vote and the plan remains on to keep this week’s target shrouded in the darkness and so far it’s working. So which Houseguest is about to meet Julie Chen? Let’s count the votes.

To set the stage, Jozea, Paulie, and Bridgette are on the Block. Bridgette replaced Paul. One of them will be evicted Thursday night during the first live show of the BB18 season (9/8c).

The house currently stands well divided with the Eight Pack alliance plus Corey facing off against the newbies and their Revolution alliance. We can see these divisions, but as we heard again last night, Jozea and company have no idea at all just how bad things are for them.

Jozea has revealed his “Secure Seven,” a voting bloc he has completely confidence in and believes will save him. Flashback on your Live Feeds to 12:13AM BBT 6/28 to hear Jozea breakdown his anticipated supporting votes with Paul and Bridgette.

The “Seven” includes Paul, Victor, Bronte, Natalie, Zakiyah, Da’Vonne, Frank, and maybe, just maybe even James. Jozea believes these Houseguests will vote to keep him.

Bridgette countered Jozea saying she expects it to be a 6-5 vote in Jozea’s favor, but he disagrees. She expects Tiffany, Corey, Michelle, and maybe even James to go against Jozea. She’s right, but Jozea refuses to see that it could be even worse than that.

Paul suggests they only way Jozea will be in trouble is if Da’Vonne betrays him. She has and she will. Neither Zakiyah nor Frank or even James will be voting to keep Jozea.

Right now I’d put the vote at 7-4 against Jozea Flores and in favor of Paulie Calafiore.

Based on the Feeds we can expect to see the Houseguests going against Jozea to include James, Tiffany, Frank, Da’Vonne, Michelle, Zakiyah, and Corey. Voting to keep Jozea will be Bronte, Paul, Victor, and Natalie. Bridgette is unlikely to receive any votes against her.

There’s still time for big changes, but I really don’t see it happening. About the biggest change of plans for Thursday would be if Jozea discovers the plot against him before Julie Chen reveals the vote. Frank hopes to keep it a surprise for the Revolution alliance so their heads are spinning heading in to the next HoH comp. Good plan. Let’s see if they can pull it off.

What do you think will happen on Thursday night? Is Jozea heading out the door or will we get a surprise ourselves?
