Today on the Big Brother 18 Live Feeds we’ll be watching the fallout from this week’s Power of Veto meeting but there’s no waiting to determine what’s about to happen when this round’s final nominees are revealed.
Corey and Paulie were sent to the Block and it’s generated a lot of heat on the Feeds so far while Saturday’s Veto competition added more fuel to the fire. Now we’ve got one last chance for Paulie to talk himself out of the danger zone before things are locked up for this week’s eviction. Can he pull it off?
There’s no chance Victor will save Paulie or Corey. It won’t happen.
Flashback to 12:00 PM BBT 8/14 to find Paulie doing his best to convince Victor to give him a shot at safety. Paulie’s at least been wisely not trying to get himself saved but rather trying to convince Victor to save Corey.
Paulie’s logic here is that Victor wouldn’t likely save Paulie (correct) but if Corey came down then Paulie would have two votes in his pocket (Nicole & Corey) then he’d need to flip just one more player (he hopes that’d be Michelle). The plan isn’t bad, but the actors in this case are for his chances.
Victor gave up $5K to James and a vacation (trade in value of $5K) to Nicole so he could secure his nominations by taking the Veto for himself in the comp. That’s dedication to the plan. He’s not going to go back on those decisions and give Paulie an opening. Victor explained to Paulie that with any changes to the situation he’s making an opportunity for the end result to change as well. Victor is no dummy.
Paulie has tried a lot of different moves and talked to several HGs trying to build support. Michelle initially seemed receptive but later admitted to allies that she only felt sorry for him. That’s another tactic Paulie has been trying. He’s told HGs he has a relative with cancer and needs to stay to win the money for her. They weren’t pleased with that approach either.
Try as he might, Paulie isn’t making any headway and neither he nor Corey will be coming down at today’s Veto meeting. Expect Victor to shut the lid on the PoV box and carry on with his week. Paulie will remain the target and should be evicted 5-0 on Thursday. His only shot at continuing on Big Brother 18 is the chance that he has the Round Trip card.
Speaking of, we’ve had a fun discussion on Twitter this morning about those cards. Since this is the last week to put those cards in play then we thought it’d be interesting to see the other HGs, besides Corey and Paulie, open their tickets to find out if any of them have the Round Trip. The penalty for opening the cards was voiding them, but if none of the non-noms are going this week then their cards are basically voided already.
Now I know this won’t likely happen, but could you imagine the craziness in either direction? Should none of the non-nom HGs discover a RT card then that would confirm to us that one of the two guys have it. Maybe it’d change the vote plans, but probably not. Then if one of the non-noms does have it then the panic could really set in for the noms and we could see some extreme campaigning. I know this is a pipe dream, but oh it’d make for some crazy Feeds!
What do you think of Victor’s plans to leave the nominations as they are? Is he making a bad move or doing the smart thing to keep Paulie without any options but to fight against his closest ally for a chance to stay in the Big Brother house?
