Tonight On Big Brother 18: Live Eviction & Endurance HoH In Week 11

Tonight on Big Brother 18 the latest eviction vote is set to take place with just three votes deciding the next HG to join the Jury when James Huling and Natalie Negrotti take their spots in the hot seat.

Nominees Natalie and James on BB18

We’ve got the live show kicking off at 9/8c on CBS and by the end of the night we’ll have started the battle for a new Head of Household. Yes, CBS has confirmed we’ve got another endurance competition heading our way on the Live Feed as this one could be a major turning point again for the season.

As for what will happen at that vote, well, things look bad for Natalie. After Victor started the week wanting to see James gone the rest of his F4 alliance revealed their plans to get Natalie out the door instead. This has been Nicole’s longstanding goal and now it’s about to be realized. With Natalie gone Nicole can reel James in and continue her pursuit of the F3 with him and Corey. Yes, she’s ready to flip on her latest F4 alliance. Again.

Tonight’s Head of Household competition, which has been spoiled by Miss Cleo as the return of the slip & slide comp, will be hugely critical for these five HGs. Only Paul may be playing to keep Paul and Victor safe for sure while we know Nicole and Corey want to take out one of the Sitting Ducks. As for James, well he’s been warned not to align with Nicole & Corey, but you know he will. This could be win-or-demise for the Sitting Ducks.

  1. You would think Corey would catch on and vote to evict James. There’s no way he’ll make it to final 2 if James is still there. I mean, didn’t Nicole sort of tell him that already? Lol

  2. Paul is sitting pretty. Vote to evict Victor if James, Nicole or Corey win HOH. He’s too strong a player to keep. Vote to evict Nicole if Paul wins. I think he will bust up that showmance although my gut opinion, take nicole to the F2, no one will vote for her. right now, Victor wins at F2 over anyone, then James, then Paul, then Corey.

      • 1) If Victor is on the block, Paul will likely be sitting next to him and have no vote.
        2) If Victor is on the block and Paul isn’t, Paul will not vote out his best ally.
        3) If Paul wins HOH, he doesn’t have a vote to vote out Nicole
        4) James will NOT win in a final two with anyone except for Corey. And that’s still a maybe.

      • If both Paul and Victor are smart then if at all possible they should throw this HOH comp to James. Risky move for them I boy do I mean risky. If it goes like I think here is how I see it happening. If James wins HOH, I see one of each of the two duo’s going up. Should the other of each duo wins the VETO, then expect their partner to come down and the other partner of the one left on the block going up.

        In other words, both Paul and Corey go up. Viictor wins VETO and then Paul comes down as Nicole goes up. Both Paul and Victor will have control over which one goes home. Same if Nicole wins VETO and pulls Corey down Victor goes up then Nicole and Corey would have the power as to who goes home. All of this changes if James is on the block.

      • I think he meant people will evict Victor over Paul if James, Nicole, or Corey win HOH and put them up. That doesn’t account for the veto, but the OP seems to know Paul would be next to him.

      • I agree with that, unless she was up against Doofus. Then Paulie might abandon her…she is a female after all. :(

      • K…just re-posted that comment I mentioned earlier…minus the key words you mentioned…let’s see what happens? *crosses fingers* ;)

        Thank you again hon for your help. :)

      • Nope. If her and James are F2 she’d have Corey, Paulie, Victor and Paul. Possibly Day since Day already said she might have her vote and Z can’t stand James so I believe she’d vote for Nicole. And if Dr. Will goes and coaches them again he will stress what a great game she played. James would have Nat, Michelle (bitter) and Bridgette (bitter). And maybe Day. JMO

      • She would have Corey, Paulie, Victor and Pauls vote. James would have Nat, Bridgette, Michelle and maybe Days vote. Day even said in jury if Nicole makes it to the end I just might have to give her my vote. The toss up would be Z and she never liked James and if her and Paulie have made up she’ll vote for Nicole. Paul never liked James so he’s not voting for him and Victor loves Nicole. That’s how I see it.

      • Yep it is. None of us will really know until they vote. Don’t know if they’ll vote personal (bitter) or on game. Can’t wait to find out though.

      • if i had to vote, victor would be my choice if he made F2, out of the house TWICE and to the F2 would be amazing. I think Paul is playing an amazing game as well. He’s at a disadvantage because he lost Pablo. The others have floated all season except for James somewhat. Would love to see Bridgette dating Frank after the season is over.

      • I don’t think so. It IS her best bet, but I think Nicole might have made herself a Dan G or Danielle R this season, i.e., most of the jury members sincerely do not like her. If she makes F2…she might be looking at 2nd just b/c of that fact, despite playing a better game.

      • Depends who she’s against. Against Victor and Paul I think she’s second. Against James I think she wins.

  3. Well that blows that Nicole said production helped her during POV comp. I’m guessing they helped them all a little. I was suspicious how quickly they were figuring it out. Especially Corey. Needed to move it along for tv. Would have been a clusterfuk otherwise. Still, disappointing & unfair.

      • Nicole said that production told her the key floated “or I would have never known”… I think she also said she was told where the key was.

    • Yeah, did anyone notice that Corey did not even go to the man hole (like every other HG did) and look at it first? He just made a right and began unscrewing the pole on the wall; hmmm…almost as if he already knew he would need that.

      Wow! I am not a conspiracy theorist, but c’mon… IMO, Corey made it SO obvious that he had been coached it was laughable…probably got chastised for it later by production too.

  4. Anybody looked at the popularity poll lately. Many might not care, but I find it a little fascinating and puzzling how that Nicole starts out with a much lower percentage than James, but ends up ranking higher before voting ends for the week(not sure exact span of voting). When I first saw this weeks poll and voted, Dingus was around 15.26%, Victor had 26.95%, and James had 31.18%. Currently it’s Dingus with 22.3%, Victor @ 22.78%, and James @ 29.54%. Dingus keeps going up just like the past two weeks. SMH

    • Are you suggesting the poll is fixed? It’s not enough the show is fixed now people are accusing the BigBrotherNetwork polls of being fixed too? Good grief.. Maybe Nicole is just getting more votes because she’s played he best game two weeks running?

      • WOW…In no way am I suggesting that. I figure most people never look at the polls after the first day so I was simply making others aware of how it changes.

      • I’m sorry I misunderstood you then. I guess it just seems normal to me that the poll values would fluxuate overtime so I though the only other explanation you were suggesting was trickery. I voted very early (probably in first few minutes) and Nicole was actually above 40 percent if I recall. I had voted for Nicole though so my vote probably heavily skewed the numbers. As more and more people vote any single vote will count less and then the order people voted won’t matter.

      • Well I’m not sure what to tell you because when I voted in the week 11 poll, I’m almost positive she was leading at about 40%. Like I said, I voted very soon after it was posted so it was probably a very small sampling.

      • lol, I get the feeling you still don’t quite believe me :) Well either way I’m sorry wrongly accused you of making cheating allegations. There are so many posts crying foul play that I jumped the gun on you.

      • Honestly, no problem. I have been paying very close attention to the polls, but if you say she was @ 40%, all I can say is, OK. Far from saying I don’t believe you.

      • Victor pulled ahead, but that was what I was saying earlier, K…the difference between Jokers and BBN is really bizarre! ;)

      • Yeah, for a minute, but then Victor beat her out. That is a strange one. I was just commenting on the drastic difference between Jokers poll and BBN… :)

      • He manages to keep his mouth shut most of the time and doesn’t lose it emotionally and be downright mean to anyone – and that’s all a lot harder than one would think, I believe, confined like that and often left to your own distorted thoughts. I actually give James a lot of credit for that. I think you can see him sometimes resisting opening his mouth. There is something to that old adage about it is better to have people think you are dumb – or whatever – than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    • Also…K, have you noticed the drastic difference in the polls here at BBN and Jokers? On Jokers, Nicole is ranked 12th fave of the HG…Here she is #1. I am pretty sure a lot of the same people go to each site so, how are they so *drastically* different?? Does anyone have a reasonable explanation for the discrepancy?

      • Right now, the Popularity Poll for week 11 that was put out on Sept. 6th @3:30 on BBN has
        Nicole… 22.29%
        Victor…. 22.79%
        James.. 29.61%
        So, although Dingus is not ranked #1 as of now, she wasn’t at this time in last week’s poll either. But by the time voting stopped for that week, she was @ 30.3% and has passed Vic and James. Vic had started out pretty far ahead of her, too.

      • Yes, and now go look at Jokers HG ratings…they are *drastically* different. I mean night and day different…

      • I started out voting for him, too. I did last year. But I stopped as soon as I started believing that he and Dingus have an alliance that Production has been helping them further. That is insulting to me as a huge BB fan. I understand there are those who think that is based on speculation, as at this point, it is. But there is much circumstantial evidence to point to it more likely being factual than not.

      • I believe it too. I also don’t believe people when they say they can’t talk to each other beforehand. You know they would and probably did.

  5. Scenario (just a thought), Paul wins HOH puts Cory and James on the block, Nicole wins HOH pulls Cory off and they vote out Victor. Then for the next HOH Paul can’t play

    • That’s a good point. If Paul considers this, his best bet might be to nominate Corey and Nicole straight up. Then he could re-nom James unless he wins the veto.

      • Very good point. I love this comp, but i am not sure who my money is on I can see Paul winning this comp. I am rooting for Nicole or Cory.

  6. If they were smart, they’d evict James now while they have the chance. We’d know then Nic’s true colors if she’s adamant about not doing that. She’s wanting him to take her to Final 3 or 2, something she’s not sure Paul or Vic will do and isn’t counting on Corey to due to his not being able to win the harder comps – tall guys don’t do well in those – they’ll be subjected to like the rope comp over slime and dumped into several times. He didn’t do well in the last rope comp.

    • They can’t this week….Corey won’t flip his vote…he didn’t even acknowledge when Nicole said he might not take him to the F2….he’s in the clouds. So it looks like Gnat is going.

      • Which is a dumb move if he’s ever going to be able to win BB! But hey stranger things have happened like Victoria getting to Final 3! LOL

      • or Cody taking Derek to F2 and losing $450k. No big Vanessa moment pending this year though. My favorite moment of all time when she finished F3 :)

      • Sure, anyone Anti-Vanessa would have loved that moment. But it exposes a big flaw in the game, and it is precisely why Survivor tends to put the final 3 in front of the jury to vote. And that flaw is that, if there are only a final 2 in front of a jury, the “best player” is going to take 3rd place most of the time. That’s what happened to Vanessa. That’s what SHOULD HAVE happened to Derek. If there’s one person clearly better than the others in the final 3, they’re not making it to the final 2 unless they win the final competition or have a poor play by someone like Cody.

      • Agreed. It does seem to make that final HOH a bit too powerful. Especially in a season like Vanessa’s when there was a lot of luck in part 3 of the HOH comp.

      • Exactly! If a weak player (Steve) happens to win that final HOH…they are going to get rid of the better player (Vanessa) and take another weak player (LIz) with them to help ensure they get the votes to win. It is a fundamental flaw I have seen on BB for a long time. I could not stand Vanessa in season 17…she was a paranoid, teary-eyed mess, but she called people out when needed and she definitely played a better BB game than either Liz or Steve.

      • Looks like Nicole is hoping to get out Vic & Paul or Vic & Cory The next eviction after this one is the fast forward. Shes probably hoping to bust a Racheal and James next to her will make her look good since he has laid to low this season, so she did more than him to win

  7. I usually can not remember the first person evicted, or even on Survivor voted off, but Glenn keeps sticking in my head. We never got to see him play at all. We don’t know if he was there for tv time, or for the money. Seems most of these hgs are here for followers, or to get a tv contract. Glenn probably won’t get many AFP votes, but I’m voting his way. I was leaning toward Nat or Vic, but have decided Glenn got a crap shot and nobody else really deserves it.

    • I think Nat’s chances at AFP took a big hit with yesterday’s episode. Throwing James under the bus looked pretty dirty the way they portrayed it on the show. Does suck for Glenn though to get picked and all amped up but then never really get to play.

      • She went right to james and told him what she said. James has a sack of rocks for a brain, and should have been listening to Nat, since she’s very observant and has the best grasp of the house dynamics.

      • No, she didn’t. She told him she told the guys “she put her trust in the wrong hands”, but she NEVER told James she told the guys those “wrong hands” were his (James). She gave him just enough of the truth to cleverly avoid being called out for it later.

  8. Hopefully James wins HOH, put up one from each pair, if one wins Veto and comes down their other half goes up. Somebody has to choose a side and James wins either way because he will side with which ever pair wins and they will use him to get left over side out jamesmakes final three then it’s left up to who wins next veto.

  9. Omg Natalie — sour grapes ??? So over her spoiled ass attitude — now she’s going to play a Michelle and spew lies on her way out — so freaking mature !! So over her !’

      • James completely boned her, if he’d listen to her they’d be in a much better spot right now. I can totally understand her fustration.

  10. So if it’s the slip and slide I think it’s anyone’s game. Paul will be fast at this and so will James and Nicole. Corey has the long legs but let’s see how coordinated he is about staying on his feet. Can’t wait to watch.

    • Doesn’t a guy usually win this comp? Women aren’t as muscular as men and tend to tire out sooner than men do. So unless someone throws her the comp I don’t see her winning.
      I’d think Corey’s long legs give him an advantage too and since he played college baseball I assume he’s not too klutzy :D

  11. You know what really bothers me about Natalie’s blame game all week? She is absolutely forgetting how *she* talked Michelle out of nominating Nicole in their shared HOH! James did not do that…Natalie did. Natalie wanted Paul to go home, but b/c Meech refused to nominate Vic, Natalie said “then I’ll nominate Vic and you nominate Paul”. Of course Michelle was stupid to go along with this plan b/c Vic & Paul had already told her they wanted to take her to the F3…but Michelle thought N/J had her back as well, so she went with Natalie’s plans that week.

    And see here is where I really have a problem with Natalie. Does she feel bad that she helped to blow up Michelle’s game? (Not that I liked Michelle-b/c-ugh-didn’t!) No. Natalie only feels bad for herself and how that decision blew her own game up. She is forgetting that she was the driving force behind putting Paul and Vic on the block, instead of Paul and Nicole…

    Had she not manipulated Michelle that week…we might be looking at an entirely different game of BB right now. So seriously, Natalie…you made a BIG move and it ended up having a BIG consequence to both you and Michelle! Own it and accept it, but quit blaming everyone else for it!

      • For some reason I’m not able to reply to TGJ’s comment but I couldn’t agree more with what she said.
        While Natalie is busy blaming James and Nicorey for her own choices, the reality is that none of them knew Victor would be returning to the house immediately. Their brief alliance worked out well for everyone, until Victor returned.
        .
        VP knew they couldn’t work with Jatalie any more so Nicorey had to now work with VP to save themselves that week. They had no other choice and neither did VP.
        I wish Nat would stop blaming everybody in the house for her bad luck because that’s what turned out to be her demise, not Nicorey.

      • India my comment was reported as spam…WHY?? Still not sure… but now it is back and it has multiplied… lol!! :)

      • Agreed! Natalie needs to just (in then words of Evel Dick) “suck it up cupcake!” and own her move and the consequences of said decision.

  12. the picture of natalie and james used for this article makes me lol everytime i see it…i just came back to my pc and i started laughing all over again..deer in headlights and mad about it….

  13. You know what really bothers me about Natalie’s blame game all week? She is absolutely forgetting how *she* talked Michelle out of nominating Nicole in their shared HOH! James did not do that…Natalie did. Natalie wanted Paul to go home, but b/c Meech refused to nominate Vic, Natalie said “then I’ll nominate Vic and you nominate Paul”.

    And see here is where I really have a problem with Natalie. Does she feel bad that she helped ruin Michelle’s game? No. She doesn’t. Let’s remember also, Michelle did not know about the F4 deal N/J had with N/C, so Natalie’s pushing Michelle into going after Paul & Vic…purely for her and James’ gain. In no way, shape, or form was she looking out for Michelle here. Not that I liked Michelle-b/c-ugh-didn’t! However, that does not excuse Natalie’s behavior. Natalie only feels bad for herself and how that decision ruined her own game, she cares nothing for anyone else who was collateral damage of her useless HOH. Michelle truly wanted to nominate Nicole, but *Natalie* (not James) talked her out of it. Had she (Natalie) not used and manipulated Michelle that week for her own gain, we might be looking at an entirely different game of BB right now.

    So seriously, Natalie…you made a BIG move and it ended up having a BIG consequence to both you and Michelle. Own it and accept it, but quit blaming everyone else for it!

    • Not awaiting moderation yet. We may never know why that happened the first time.
      That whole Dingus not being nom’d that week scenario…grrrrr! James would never have voted to evict her, but I’d loved to have seen the outcome and aftermath of that.

      • Right. Natalie was the one who talked Michelle out of nominating her. Not that I wanted Michelle to stay, but imo, Natalie had as with sending her home as Nicole did. She manipulated Michelle during their co-HOH to do what was best for her and James, which helped to ruin Michelle alliance with Paul & Vic…Meech also had a lot to do with that since she believed something Paulie said as well, but still…

      • I deleted the post..let’s see if the first one stays now. Whew…scary stuff for a newbie like myself. *bites nails*.
