Big Brother 18: Week 3 Veto Comp Plans – Update: Players Picked| July 9, 2016 at 12:00 PM EDT
Later today in the Big Brother 18 house six of the HGs will face off in the backyard and it’s looking like a make or break competition for one of this week’s nominees.
So far we have four of the six players after last night added a third nominee to the mix. Now those preparing to play know they’ll have to choose wisely and then compete hard to win.
Bridgette sent Tiffany and Paul to the Block while Frank, the RK winner, put Bronte on the Block. Tiffany is likely heading out the door on Thursday if she doesn’t win the Power of Veto to get herself off the Block. It’s obviously a big comp for her game.
Overnight James advised Natalie that it was Frank who put Bronte up there so they need to be sure not to pick Frank to play in the comp. Instead Bronte plans to pick Natalie to compete along with her, if she gets the choice. Remember that any HGs already playing who see their name drawn get to pick the alternate competitor.
As for winning, while it’s imperative for Tiffany it’s really not as much so for Paul or Bronte, unless Tiffany is about to win then that’s a go-go-go situation. Of course they should all be trying to win since they’re on the Block, it’s just that they shouldn’t freak out otherwise. If they’re sitting next to Tiffany at the end of the week that’s a best case scenario for them at that point.
Bridgette has even already started talking about renom options and there aren’t many. If one of her noms comes down then she’ll have to pick from Zakiyah, Da’Vonne, Natalie, James, Corey, or Nicole. She’s stated plainly that she will not renom a girl and she won’t renom James out of respect to Natalie. That leaves her with… Corey. Corey better hope he gets a chance to play and win it because if either Paul or Tiffany come down then he’s going up.
Frank revealed he’d use Natalie as a renom should Bronte win it and come down, so if Natalie does get picked then she’d do well to win it over Bronte and then save Bronte with it to force Frank to make another choice since both the ladies would be safe.
I’m expecting Veto players to be picked this morning so we’ll update this article here with those two extra names when it happens. Then the competition could be midday or early evening. It’s only going to be mid-80’s in Burbank, CA today but that can still get pretty hot in that breezeless backyard and they may need to wait for things to cool.

Update: Players were picked. Paulie and Natalie appear to be the two additional HGs joining in the comp as Bridgette announced “we’re all playing” while the Powerpuff and Paulie were alone in the HoH room.
Paulie and Bridgette are very happy with this draw, as they should be. Like I wrote above, Natalie winning is Bronte and Bridgette’s best case scenario to keep all three safe this week. If Paulie wins I think he’d leave the noms the same though, unless Frank pressures him to take down Bronte so he could renom Natalie for whatever reason he comes up with.
Bridgette is explaining how the giant dice Veto comp works to Bronte, since she’s never watched BB before. Sigh. Bridgette says she memorized the sequences. HGs seem to think this would be the work for that comp, but we’ll see.
