‘Big Brother 18’: Nomination Anticipation In Week 9 – Update: New Plans After Care Package Revealed

This week we need to take the Big Brother 18 nomination plans in two waves because right now the new Head of Household is busily planning to select two HGs but we know only one will come from the main HoH and the other will be up to this America’s Care Package.

Nicole worries about the nominations

Yes, the Head of Household duties for nominations will be divided giving one pick to the HoH and the other to the Co-HoH and while we know that the Houseguests are still in for a surprise when the little box parachutes down to the ground later today.

Natalie won HoH overnight and spent a lot of time this morning going through her nomination plans. You can Flashback to a little before 6AM BBT this morning and let it roll for an hour as Natalie plans with James which followed some planning with Corey and with Nicole. Yes, the previous plan has changed.

The five Houseguests who came together to oppose Paulie are now splitting up after Natalie decided last night that she didn’t trust Paul and James agreed. Now Natalie is planning to target Victor and Paul with her two nominations, but of course we know she’ll have just one pick.

All the same Natalie spoke with James at length that she wanted to get Paul and Victor up because Paul was her target. No wait, she wants them both up because Victor is her target. Actually she has wanted Corey out for a long time, so maybe… no, we’re back to Paul and Victor going up.

Natalie recognizes that Victor is incredibly strong at comps and a huge threat to win if he gets to the end. Natalie even admitted she’d vote for him over one of the women despite having previously said she’d vote girl power no matter what. Of course she’ll still vote for Nicole over Paul if they’re at the end though because, sit down for this one, Natalie says Nicole has played a better game. Yikes.

James was supportive of Natalie’s plan to go after Victor and Paul by making them the two nominees. He says they’re down to the F7 and at this point they need to start getting aggressive. Both agree they’d rather face Nicole and Corey in the final comps than Victor and Paul. Hard to argue with that logic, but they’re going to have trouble pulling this off.

When that package hits the backyard I’m expecting either Paul or Michelle to win it but it might go to Victor too. Corey would be a real shock win but anything is possible. I think we could see a shuffle of plans once Natalie sees she can’t get both her noms on the Block.

If she goes ahead and puts Paul up then say Victor wins Veto he could save Paul and end that plan. Same goes vice versa. This could get messy for Natalie’s plans. But if that ACP nomination is in the hands of one of the five HGs she was aligned with last week then they’d have a real easy time working together to put Nicole and Corey up together. I’m just not sure she hasn’t talked herself out of seeing those two put up after all her talks this morning.

Natalie has promised she won’t put up a girl because she made America a promise. Okay. So don’t expect that to happen. And we know her current plan to nominate Victor and Paul won’t happen either. It’s going to be an entertaining after on the Live Feeds so I recommend you get the Free Trial now and be ready to watch along!

Once we get the ACP results we’ll have to come back and do an update for nomination plans for both Natalie and the ACP winner. It’ll be interesting to see if they coordinate their noms or if they have to keep them secret . Good stuff ahead.

What do you think Natalie should do once the ACP is revealed? Is it worth the risk of going after either Paul or Victor if one of them can’t come down or will she have to backtrack and set her sights again on Nicole and Corey? Share your thoughts below.

Update: The America’s Care Package has been awarded to Michelle leaving us with time to start planning who both HoH’s will nominate as they each get one pick.

Natalie grabbed Michelle and they sat down in the Have-Not room at 1:17 PM BBT today to discuss their options. Michelle wanted to target Nicole but Natalie very, very quickly flipped her to targeting Paul instead. A gentle breeze could have flipped Michelle it seems.

Michelle and Natalie leave the room and Natalie lets Nicole and Corey know that Michelle is on board. Nicole & Corey leap out of their designated resting spots for the season. They gather in the kitchen for much chatter. There are promises of safety and voting as requested.

Looks like we have our nomination plans settled. Natalie will likely nominate Paul while Michelle nominates Victor. Watch for that this evening.
