Only one vote tonight will decide this week’s second eviction from Big Brother 18 after Paul Abrahamian won the latest HoH competition and set himself up to move on to the F3. Now it’s time to take a look at who will be joining him in the next round.
Corey Brooks watched from the sidelines as Nicole Franzel lost the tiebreaker in the HoH comp and put their game together in jeopardy, but they both had one more chance with the Veto comp to force James Huling out instead. Who is about to pull it off? Read on to find out who will be evicted tonight.
When the Feeds returned we discovered that sure enough, just as everyone expected, Paul nominated Nicole and Corey, but really it all depended on who could pull off the Veto. Unfortunately for Nicole and Corey, it wasn’t either of them. Paul secured the Veto in what sounds like was a contentious battle as Corey vocally disagreed with production at times and now one of the Nicorey duo will be eliminated.
James is upstairs talking with Paul after listening to Corey and Nicole badger him for details on which of them James will be voting out. Since Paul is both HoH and the Veto winner this week he gets to pick who does the voting, but he actually has no way to control the vote other than to hope James does what they discuss.
As Paul and James talk it’s clear they both want Corey out of the game. It makes sense since Corey is a strong player and James has a better chance of pairing with Nicole if Corey is gone, though James’s plans came in to question with a later camtalk session. I’ll have more on that later. Though Nicole is also a big threat especially in Jury. Does Paul have any great options here?
James tells Paul he’s going to do whatever Paul asks of him with this vote since Paul is effectively saving James by not using the Veto. If Paul did use the Veto then whichever half of Nicorey was down from the Block would vote out James. He’s grateful to stay in the game and will give Paul control of this vote in exchange. I believe he’ll stick to this plan when the vote is announced.
Now jump ahead to 10:00 PM BBT 9/13 as Nicole is heading up to the HoH room for her private talk with Paul.
Paul tells Nicole there’s no way he’s keeping Nicorey together in the game so just go ahead and let that idea go. He wants her to not feel bad about Corey going instead of her. Paul promises to try and keep Nicole safe by pretending with James that they (Paul and James) have a deal and Nicole is better for their game to keep.
Yes, it sounds like Nicole and Paul have some sort of deal together that was crafted during the blackout, but once again later talks call that in to question when Nicole was alone with Corey. All the same, Paul is confirming to Nicole what she already appears to know. Corey should be voted out tonight and Paul has James agreeing to fulfill that promise with the vote.
After their talk was done Corey came up for his turn. Flashback to 10:20 PM BBT 9/13. Paul gently lets Corey down and tells him both Nicole and Corey are his friends but Corey is the bigger threat to his game and will have to be the one to go. Corey has calmed down by now after being understandably agitated earlier. He understands and doesn’t put up much of a fight or argument here.
So there we go. Everyone in the house is on board and expects Paul to decline to use the Veto leaving James as the sole voter. He will announce his vote to evict Corey and the Final 3 will move on to the last HoH competition of the season with the first of three rounds delivering and endurance battle so make sure to have your Live Feeds ready!
