Big Brother 18 Live Feeds Week 5: Monday Night Highlights

Tension and dramatics were high in the Big Brother 18 house Monday night as production gave the HGs a little nudge with a Secret Room hint that not everyone was privy to at first.

Paul crawls through the secret tunnel

If you’ve got the Live Feeds (Free Trial) then you can watch all of these moments with the Flashback feature to go back and watch those important conversations or funny scenes you may have missed.

First catch up on Monday’s daytime events including the reveal of clues to the Secret Room.

Big Brother 18 Live Feed Highlights – Monday, July 25, 2016:

4:45 PM BBT – Houseguests scrambling to find the secret hinted by the message board. James locked his HoH room in case there were clues in there.

4:55 PM BBT – Paul starts running to the posters and picking out the green words in the destination posters.

5:05 PM BBT – Paul is inspecting the model plane. He tries to pry it off the base then breaks the wing. Oops.

5:10 PM BBT – Frank is dialing on the phone but Paul shoves his way in.

5:11 PM BBT – Michelle mentions she could see red light from a panel in the phone booth. Yep, that was it, but she didn’t both to investigate?? Sheesh.

5:14 PM BBT – Paul got it! He hears a recorded message that says to stay calm and instructs him to go through a tunnel when the coast is clear.

5:16 PM BBT – Other HGs come to check the phone booth but Paul is telling them it’s not the phone and not to bother. Paul is trying hard to keep people away.

5:17 PM BBT – Paul tells Corey and James he got it and needs them to clear the area, especially Frank and Bridgette.

5:20 PM BBT – Frank continues to try the phone. Paul is telling everyone it must be outside, but then he stays right by the booth instead.

5:30 PM BBT – Frank and Bridgette try to go to the phone booth but Paul jumps in the way and closes the booth doors. Very subtle.

5:40 PM BBT – Bridgette tries again to get to the booth but Paul blocks her. She asks to try and he says no then shuts the door. So smooth. Natalie asks Paul if she can try. He just stares at her through the glass. This guy.

5:41 PM BBT – Paul dials it again and gets the message. Natalie can hear it. Paul dives in to the tunnel and vanishes.

5:42 PM BBT – Paul is in the Paris room. He reads the instructions. There are 12 cards. He gets to pick one and so can anyone else who enters. Don’t open the card until you’re evicted or your card is voided. If your envelope has a “round trip ticket” then you get to go back in the game.

5:51 PM BBT – Paul finally picks his card and exits through the tunnel. Everyone is there waiting. Cheers from all. They head downstairs and his bullshit starts flowing.

5:55 PM BBT – Paul gives a lot of fluff and tries to discourage them from trying but he won’t tell them how he got in. Others realize he’s lying and HGs start to head upstairs to try for themselves.

6:00 PM BBT – A line has formed to try the phone booth. Great stealth work, Paul.

6:06 PM BBT – Victor gets in the tunnel and is gone.

6:40 PM BBT – Feeds return from a long break presumably as everyone filed in and out of the room. Michelle is the last one to pick a card, or rather get the leftover one. Rough day for Michelle.

6:45 PM BBT – Michelle joins everyone in the HoH room. She calls Paul a liar. He says he was trying to hide it until Frank & Bridgette were gone so they didn’t get a chance at the cards. Ehh, I doubt that’ll be believed by many.

6:55 PM BBT – Paulie trying to convince everyone to tear open their cards and void them all together. Yeah…

7:00 PM BBT – Nicole asks Corey if he’s mad at her. Quickly changes cameras.

7:20 PM BBT – Michelle is sobbing to Frank, Da’Vonne, and Zakiyah. She was the last to find out about the clues. The last to get a card. And she had the fight with Bridgette this morning. She’s feeling overwhelmed.

7:25 PM BBT – Bridgette confirms to Paul that she was going to enter PARIS on the phone when Paul blocked her and shut the phone booth door.

7:27 PM BBT – Paul offers Michelle some comfort and asks if she wants him to let Bridgette have it. She tells him no. He tells her once Frank is gone he’s calling Bridgette out.

7:30 PM BBT – Paulie doesn’t understand why people are mad over not being told about the secret room clue earlier. He says if Z and Da’Vonne want to be mad over it, oh well.

7:40 PM BBT – Day tells Michelle Bridgette is being cocky again because she or Frank could have the chance of coming back in the game.

7:54 PM BBT – Zakiyah and Day discuss how weird Nicole has been acting. Zakiyah says she knows Nicole is playing both sides and is surprised she’s so shady.

  1. So everyone has a card. I don’t enjoy thinking that production interferes because the result is that, in the end, it will positively affect someone’s game and negatively affect another’s game at some time. When production decides to introduce such twists in the game, they should go to every extent possible to ensure the HGs and the viewers realize that it is equally fair to all. There are ways they could do that if they wanted to. The fact that they don’t even try makes all suspicious, for good reason.

    • Going to fish when they did was very telling. There was no freaking reason to go to fish.

      • How hard would it be to put the phone in a position where no one could see what was dialed? Why was the message so loud that others could hear it or parts of it? There should be a method of storing the cards where there would be absolutely no question about the possibility of production being able to switch one. There are many things they could do to tamp down suspicions, but for some reason, they don’t. Why?

      • Because people will watch anyway. I totally believe production rigs it for certain players but that doesn’t stop me from tuning in.

      • I know…I’m not impressed but I’m addicted. Prob last one I may watch. So many things I’d like to see different. But it’s their game not mine!

  2. “I swear to God, if Frank goes home and then just walks right back in , i might just punch Bridgette in the face” – Paul Abrahamian 7/26 – 1:04 am ET –

    • Paul just talks. It’s sad that these thoughts run through his mind. That’s the part of BB I don’t like.

    • And his classy move to call out Bridgette AFTER Frank leaves – nice. I am not a Bridgette fan AT ALL but what a wimp move.

    • Sounds like Paul needs anger management. This is the main reason I would love to see Frank or Bridgette win this season.

      • But Frank can do the the same thing in regards to Z and get away with it by saying he’s just kidding?

      • In truthfulness, Frank may have been kidding but we may never know for sure. Do I really think Paul would act upon his statement NO. He is just like some of the other’s and is just blowing off some steam.

      • Oh before I forget, it is never I repeat NEVER OK for anyone in the house to say anything like remotely like this.

    • His behavior is out of control. And his inferiorty complex is equally annoying with him trying to fit in with the “cool kids.” Completely ridiculous!

    • As acceptable as Frank saying he would give someone $100 to hit Z in the face when they get back to their hometown.

    • God, I want to see Bridgette win HOH so badly now so she can get horrible people like Paul and Michelle up on the block. Can’t stand Paul… I’m getting sick of this bullying nonsense

    • Oh BB where are you? Paul, who should have been evicted 2 wks ago, is making threatening statements

  3. “I’m going to make her last week here a living Hell” – Paul A –
    sweet guy that Paul

  4. After watching Sunday’s episode I’m not liking this season at all. Bunch of whiny floaters – esp the females. The atmosphere just seems high school in that house.

    • Paul’s gameplay was so bad in the secret room sink that I just couldn’t believe what I was watching. Nicole is falling apart as well and is displaying a complete inability to socialize. Paulie is acting like an idiot. Victor is completely clueless and I would love to rip that hat off of his head and burn it. Natalie doesn’t even know she’s playing a game because she’s too stupid.

      • Agreed. Yeah it’s just gotten stoopid. Production is going to have to discretely intervene if this summer is to be saved.

    • I still have no idea who Michelle is. Every time I see her on TV – I’m like, “Who is that?!”

      • That might be a good thing. Watching BBAD is not showing her in a good light at all. She could use some counseling

      • Haha. For the first 3 weeks I thought she might have bern a mythical character the producers created just to throw everyone off – kinda like Elaine’s ‘Suzie’ on the Seinfeld show – everyone pretending they’ve met and know her but she doesn’t really exist! LOL!

    • to be honest unless I am gonna see an interesting comp or an eviction I have had no real interest in watching this season…The TV may be on and tuned to BB I’m not that interested.. this is the first season out of 16 that I have not watched soooo it has to a bad season…lol…I do have the feeds but most of my info as to what is going on comes from BBN or Jokers..

  5. “She says Bridgette didn’t admit to the eyebrow comment (which was about Tiffany, not Michelle)” Sorry but it was about Michelle because she said she wouldn’t resuscitate her if she passed out again.

  6. Why is Paul allowed to block Bridgette and Frank from the phone booth? That should be foul and he should have to forfeit whatever card he got! He should not be allowed near the phone booth ever again! Everyone has a right to try and figure out and get inside that room! There should be clear rules that give everyone a fair shake as getting a card as there are 12 cards in the room! All Paul is entitled is a card. He has no right to block others from trying to get into the room! They should be calling his ass to the diary room and bar him from phone booth! He got his card!

    • Was he blocking people after he got his card? What I read on Jokers didn’t make me think so. Idk, but if he was in the booth and waiting to put the code in, I would think he had every right to keep the door shut and others from coming in until he got through. I can’t blame him for waiting and holding the door closed to try and keep certain people from seeing the code he was using.

      • He was only blocking right before he got in initially. No one knew about the cards at that point

      • Do not have the feeds and was just reading the summary but, the impression I get is he was trying to block Frank and Bridgette from trying to get into the room themselves. Everyone should have a chance considering they have 12 cards, I guess for everyone. If anyone gets a card, they have no business being near the phone booth since, they already got theirs! Granted not everyone is going to figure out the code, even code sharing should not be allowed! It is cheating! And considering Frank and Bridgette are on the block, they should have every chance to save themselves if they can figure out that code!

      • Richie, Paul was blocking them before he got in initially. He didnt know there twelve cards. He probably thought it was one power in his mind.

  7. I read on tumblr that the cards were pre-assigned? Victor wanted to pick a certain card but couldn’t. Is that accurate?
    If yes, then we might as welcome Frank back right now.

    • Wouldnt put it past production. When paul first when in they blocked feeds when he took his card and put them back when the card was in his hand. Then they blocked feeds for 40 minutes while everyone went in.

    • Paul appeared to pick a random card from or near the middle.. It was a lot of chaos with HGs scrambling to get in the phone booth and it went to fish….I did not see Victor or Corey get their cards..

  8. Paulie was throwing this idea, to let every one open their envelope to void all of them. lol Typical of Paulie’s game. Nice try, but it was shut down quick. He’s probably thinking, what would Derrick do?

    • It’s not a terrible idea if you can nullify the “round trip ticket”. That way whoever leaves stays gone.

    • Who goes first? Not Paulie. In that circle, Natalie would be the only one to rip it open. Geeeez.

    • What a douche Paulie is. If he hadn’t been such a prick, one not even hard then he wouldn’t have to worry about Frank coming back or not.

    • Paulie, Paul and Corey all have serious problems with women. At least Paul isn’t pretending. Corey does the bare minimum to keep up the charade with Nicole but Paulie? He seems to really enjoy using Z the way he is while plotting her eviction with his ‘boyz’.

    • Paulie’s just bragging about how his brother is the number 2 of one of the greatest players ever. It’s really sad. It’s kind of like how Frankie brags about being Ariana Grande’s brother.

      I’ll give Frank this, even though I don’t like him, atleast he doesn’t brag about his wrestler father, Sid Vicious.

  9. I don’t know why people are hating on Paul so much. He solved the code first, then told James and Corey to clear everyone out so he could go in and they were not trusting him and just hanging around. Then Frank and Bridgette came back up again as he was just about to go in. He was trying to stall but Natalie and Bridgette were acting really confident that they knew it so he finally had to just say screw it and go in right in front of Natalie, Frank, Bridgette, Da’Vonne, and Corey. Once he read the card it told him what the power was and how it worked. It also mentioned he couldn’t lie about it. He had no way of knowing it’d be something like this though. Everyone was assuming diamond veto so he had to go first. So after he came out he only said there were multiple cards and he choose 1 in the hopes it’d be a round trip ticket. They assumed a vacation. He wanted people to clear out and I imagine he’d only tell his closest allies what it was later, but Victor and Natalie were being really over the top about trying and when Victor went in 2nd that was all she wrote. Victor even told people the code later. As for Paul saying things about people, everyone in that house talks smack as well as most people on these comments so stop being so judging.

    • Paul is incredibly catty. Michelle is too but she is getting crapped on by the viewing public for it, whereas Paul and Paulie’s crap is just excused.

      • I agree they are, but in my opinion Paul is just catering to the crowd he is with. I think in his mind he thinks that’s what they want to hear. But at the end of the day he’s just as guilty as everyone else. My only point is all of them talk about the others at some point or another. Natalie is probably the only one who’s mostly out of that, but in my opinion that’s because she’s not playing the game. This is just a summer vacation for her so far this season.

      • I see Natalie having interesting moments. I think at one point she told James she wanted to backdoor Paulie, then pretended in front of Paulie that she didn’t know what backdoor was. I think playing stupid is part of Natalie’s game, but I am an optimist so what do I know.

    • Honestly I really like Paul, I don’t have the feeds so a lot of my info comes from the BBN, jokers, and commenters. His DR sessions I think say a lot about a person, and I have certainly grown fond of him. Glad to hear someone sticking up for him for once haha

      • Yah he’s one of my favorites this season too. He’s very entertaining to watch and has a good heart. He repeats things a lot which can get old, and talks big, but mostly he tries to get along with everyone. He will play into the crap talk in groups about their targets which I wish he wouldn’t do.

    • You are right, everyone talks smack & behind everyone’s back; it’s the nature of this game.
      For me, Paul seems to have gotten more cocky as Paulies right hand man but it wasn’t until Victor came back in that Paul really started bothering me.
      Pauls reaction seemed like he was trying to coach Victor & please Paulie all at once. Trying to be the ‘cool’ kid when he has to ‘try’ we have a problem in my thinking…..
      I’m not a hater of anyone. I do not know these ppl well enuff to have any emotion like that.

  10. I think Michelle’s tears were fake as could be. She’s crying in the SR..then goes into the HN room..gets in her bumper car..Paul walks in and amazingly the tears are gone..and she is back to trashing Bridgette again. These girls this season are so darn catty. May as well just have all guys playing this game..the girls can’t handle it if their men are mad at them..Nicole is getting beyond ridiculous with Corey..I think Corey wants to separate from her a little..but, she won’t let him. Z wants to fight Bridgette at the wrap pathetic!

    • I mean the guys are plenty catty as well, and very few seem to notice/care.
      Paul/Paulie are dumping on Natalie all the time, for no real reason. Paul the moron thinks Natalie is too stupid for the game.
      Paulie has a serious problem with women in general.
      Frank was sexually harassing half the house.

      The girls are not the only problem here.

      • This whole cast is a problem this year. I was talking about what I saw on the feeds yesterday.

    • ….and when I say Paul came in..he literally came in like 30 seconds later. Quick turn around for the way Michelle was supposedly so upset and crying.

  11. Paul was actually growing on me there for a while, but that was very short-lived! Wouldn’t mind seeing him and Michelle on the block together.

    • Same. I really enjoyed watching Paul play the game, except for his constant profanity. Then this week it seems his ego has gotten too big for his britches. How long are we going to have to listen to him talk about finding the secret room! I think he could be putting a target on his back if he continues to be so over the top.

  12. Worst, absolute worst, bunch of houseguests ever! With Frank being the only exception to that statement. Once he’s gone this season is done. Paul is without a doubt the worst player in big brother history. With Paulie being right behind him. Terrible. Just terrible.

  13. Paul is the biggest house Rat since Andy so he will surely walk away with the half mil….btw…will someone do a banner flyover to inform blondie that her boyfriend is gay.
