‘Big Brother 18’ Recap: Episode 25 — The Tables Have Turned On Paulie| August 14, 2016 at 9:35 PM EDT
The Paulie Exposed Party continued on Big Brother 18 Sunday night as we got a closer look at the things Paulie has been saying about the women in the house, and as some members of his alliance started to realize he might not be the kind of guy they want to play the game with.
The episode picks up right after the double eviction. Michelle is in tears and she’s trying to explain herself to Nicole. But since we didn’t get to see everything that went down before Thursday’s episode, we have to see that all go down.
Normally I’d be annoyed by having to see such old footage, but I’m glad the TV-only watchers get to see this side of Paulie. Natalie explains to Zakiyah how Paulie has been playing her all while flirting secretly with Natalie. Zakiyah decides to go to Paulie about what Natalie told her, only she calls it being attacked. Does Zakiyah believe Natalie or not? Who knows, but what is for certain is that Paulie is not happy with Natalie and he tries to put the flirting all back on her.
Natalie decides to also tell James what Paulie has been up to. James also goes to Paulie to find out what he has to say about it all. Paulie plays it off as he flirts with all the girls in the house and that Natalie is just a typical Jersey girl. And he hates Jersey girls as he’s said about 5 times this episode and about 50 times on the Live Feeds.
And for the clencher, we get to see Paulie call Natalie as fake as the things on her chest. He’s such a charming guy, isn’t he? We get a lot more of the uncomfortable confrontation with Paulie and Natalie, showing us further that this guy has no idea how to act around women. Let’s just move on. I feel dirty and sad and can’t handle this any longer.
No let’s cut back to 90 minutes before live show. Nicole asks James if he’s voting to evict Michelle. James tells Paulie, Nicole and Corey that he’s voting out Zakiyah. Paulie wants to know who put this plan together. James said the girls did and Paulie asks if he’s doing this because the girls say so. James says yep. Paulie of course is heated and goes to grill Paul. And Paul isn’t having it. He’s so over Paulie.
Paulie goes back into ask James if this is actually a shot at him. James says no, but Paulie says it is and he’s clearly getting played by a Jersey girl. Paulie threatens James, telling him he better win the HOH. Let’s cut back to after the eviction, and Paulie is attempting to apologize to James.
