Big Brother 18 Houseguests faced the prize swap Power of Veto competition on Saturday and it left half of the players with punishments set to annoy and tease while the other half walked away with some pretty good grabs.
With the crapshoot Veto comp at hand the houseguests had the chance to win their way up to cash prizes or be sent off to costume life and that’s rarely a good thing, but at least one of them looks ready to live that up.
First the good news for Houseguests who did well was a Veto for Victor, $5,000 for James, and a 2-person trip to anywhere in the US for Nicole (which she can trade in for $5K). The other three players weren’t so lucky.
Paulie “won” American Pie which requires him to bake an apple pie every time he gets a musical cue to do so. This was supposed to last all season, but with his game’s pending demise that might not be too long so he anticipates them ramping up the frequency. Paulie isn’t happy about this punishment and suggested he may opt to take the penalty vote instead of complying. Sportsmanship.
Update: After repeatedly refusing to fulfill his punishment Paulie came around and did one so far though he’s claimed he’s only willing to do one a day.
Corey has a patriotard and is dressed up in sort of an Uncle Sam attire with a bald eagle on one hand and a sign for Zingbot on the other. Remember the theme of this Veto comp was “Zingbot For President” so these are all related. Corey has to wear this costume all week and keep at least one of those items on his hands even when in the shower.
Paul got the fun costume here as a Secret Service agent. He arrived dressed in all black with suit and tie plus sunglasses and one of those little ear pieces. Paul has to respond to “Red Alert!” announcements and run to 5 or 6 checkpoints, shout all clear, and frisk the HGs. He even has to do the frisking in the middle of the night which will wake the other HGs. Ouch. They won’t like that. Paul also mentioned he has to keep the glasses on all day and can only remove them for bed. For alerts called while in the shower he’ll have to jump out, put on a towel and his tie, then run the required steps.
Paul seems actually pretty excited about this one but considering he willing wore an inflatable duck toy for a week he clearly doesn’t mind goofing it up. Corey isn’t thrilled about his and was already forgetting to keep his items with him. Hopefully Paulie comes around and can participate with his punishment to play the game.
What do you think of the punishments and prizes from this weekend’s competition? If you had to pick a punishment which one would you take on?
