Big Brother 18: Counting The Votes In Week 4 [POLL]

Eight votes are out in the mix this week on Big Brother 18 as the Houseguests prepare to send one of them nominees out the door, but it might not be the last we see of them with the latest twist looming on the horizon.

Paulie counts the votes this week on BB18

Paulie has made his goal for the week perfectly clear and so has Frank, but too many in between them are lying to one of these guys and on Thursday the next vote will reveal what looks to be a done deal.

Eight Houseguests will head inside the Diary Room on Thursday night so if they want to avoid the tie-breaker going to Paulie then either campaign will need five votes to lock in their safety. Right now that doesn’t look good for Tiffany.

Paulie wants Tiffany gone and has been quite vocal about that. If the tie goes to him then Tiffany heads on out the door and off to the Battle Back arena. Frank thinks he might be able to avoid that, but his confidence is based on a lot of fake smiles.

Right now Frank has his vote along with Bridgette’s for a solid two. Nicole and Corey have been busily flip flopping as both say they want Da’Vonne gone then roll back over to saying they’ll try for her another week. Let’s say they flip back to Frank’s side of things then that’d be only four votes and still not enough.

I see Tiffany’s road to redemption pass through Jamestown, but that’s not to say he will, just that it’s their best shot. James got burned by the last minute (night) flip that sent out his teammate Bronte. Natalie is his last teammate and she’s on the Block but currently in zero danger. James has felt marginalized by the 5-HG showmance alliance and that’d be the wedge to use against him voting to Paulie’s wishes. Again, I’m not saying it’ll happen, but that’s where they could find their fifth vote.

Votes that won’t be flipping include Michelle, Paul, and Zakiyah. They are solid for Paulie’s wishes against Tiffany, but Frank doesn’t see it.

Frank talked with Michelle last night (Flashback to 6:40PM BBT 7/18) about joining their vote. Michelle was busy lying through her teeth while Frank appeared to be believing everything she said. Michelle told him she just couldn’t give him her vote against Da’Vonne this week, but next week sure. She says she doesn’t like Tiffany and wants her gone. Plus she says she doesn’t want to be the only one voting out Day. Frank says she’d be the fifth or sixth vote so Michelle says “oh, okay, sure then.” Nah. There’s no way she’s voting out Da’Vonne.

Paul has had similar smiles and nods with Frank after their talk the other day. Paul seemed slightly interested in the idea after talking with Frank, or at least he was willing to consider it, but Paulie shut that down. Paul is too excited to finally belong to a group that he won’t dare go against his new ally in Paulie. Paul is solid against Tiffany.

For some bizarre reason Frank once mentioned he thought maybe he could get Zakiyah’s vote against Day. Zakiyah. The one who spends her nights surgically attached to Paulie and has spent most of the season joined at the hip to Day. That Zakiyah. There isn’t a single chance that Frank can get her vote.

So if we add up Frank, Bridgette, Nicole, Corey, and James then we’ve got five and Da’Vonne is Da’Gone. But don’t expect it to happen. Nicole and Corey are now back to saying they’ll just get her next week and James doesn’t have a huge reason to get out Da’Vonne.

Undercutting Frank’s whole effort here is that no one has a big need to keep Tiffany. She isn’t a central ally and aside from her RK win this week she hasn’t been a comp dominator to entice them to keep her to better their chances. Instead the HGs will try to keep their heads down, avoid rocking the boat, and Tiffany will be voted out.

Right now I’d expect 6-2 against Tiffany if the vote were held today, but we’re still two days out from the eviction vote and we all saw what happened last week the night before the live show.

What do you think will happen? Vote now in our eviction poll for your expected elimination this week. Will it be Da’Vonne, Natalie, or Tiffany?

  1. I have Davonne goes she had her chance and blew it last season finishing 16th!

      • Good! She is playing the game like a 3 year old, along with a few others and it isn’t entertaining at all. Her accusations last night that the HG’s hid something of hers and her going and pouting for hours alone in the have not room shows she doesn’t have good game in her. She needed to buck up, get out there and socialize. She wonders why no one wants to be around her? THAT is exactly why, she isolates herself. No one likes to be around people like that. She needs to take notes from Nat and be a little more positive.

      • While I agree Tiffany does not have a good game. Her paranoia is not baseless, and a HG DID hide something of hers.

      • They weren’t just accusations, Day flat out confirmed that she was hiding Tiff’s things.

  2. If Tiffy stays, she will always be low man on the totem pole. Frank wants her to stay because she promised him loyalty and her vote if he is F2. Just to even things out a bit and make the season more entertaining, I wish Da would be evicted. I’d love to see Paulie surprised like Frank was last week. Both of those guys feeling vulnerable and not sure of where the HGs loyalties lie at any given time would make for an interesting week to follow.

    • If DAY goes this week, I don’t think Paulie could recover near the same way that Frank did. His ego wouldn’t allow for it.

      • It did seem to humble Frank maybe just a tad. I think Paulie is use to things always going his way in real life, so I think you are correct saying it would most likely be more difficult for Paulie to recover.

  3. I keep going back and forth on which I want out more, Tiff or Da. I don’t like either one, so I’m cool with whoever is sent packing. And I don’t really like Natalie either, it’d almost be better to get her out and keep the Tiff & Da drama another week LOL! Nat thinks she’s at summer camp and all she keeps saying is she wants to go to jury so she can lose weight, smh. Where do they find these people?!?!

      • You like tiff the miff more than what, Chinese water torture? I know you are referring to Paulie, but I can’t with her…..just like her sister Crynessa. We were subjected to that last season, enough with it.

      • More than Day, but then again I don’t see as much of Vanessa in her as some people do. There is some, but not enough to make me not like her.

      • Ok, I thought you were referring to Paulie, but for me, either way, tiff the miffed is the one that needs to go. Had enough of her.

      • I feel the same way about Day. Paulie can leave, too, as far as I’m concerned.

      • Totally agree with you, Justine. Day can’t leave quickly enough. And I’m awfully tired of Paulie Gottie. I like Tiff. I want to see her deal with the mean girls. I mentioned something earlier— I’d love to see a movie made of the Big Brother mean girls: “Mean Girl-Nado.”

    • Sweet as she is, I would not mind them evicting Natalie this week. She probably has the least likely chance of returning whereas Da or Tiff maybe could win the battle back, depending on the battle. Lol.
      Besides, Natalie only wants to make jury so it’s not like she’s trying to win anything. I say let her go, keep the hungry ones in the game. Plus it’d be interesting to see how James plays after Natalie leaves. Honestly, I don’t want Nat in the jury if she is going to vote for “a girl” to win, regardless. If the female was better than the male, then she should win. But if the male is better, then he should win. Girl power should be about helping each other be better and deserving IMHO; not down with getting something only because you’re a female…except to be treated like a lady in the best sense of the word. That’s too political for this site. Sorry about that. I’ll keep it to the game. This site is for fun! So evict Natalie and let the hunger games begin! Ha!

  4. I hope this team twist is over soon. Especially because they’re all safe from going on block. I likedcit the first couple of weeks but now I’m over it

  5. The only thing getting any love in that house this year is the cookie dough.

  6. i sure hope the drama picks up between Da and Tiff, and it is a close vote. i prefer da over tiff just bc da can be more comical and i always like a good chuckle. either way the eviction goes, i think we would have great drama, chaos, and excitement if either of them made it back in. i am assuming the returning player comes back in this next BB week since the battle back airs friday. does anyone know how it is gonna play out?

    • No, we were debating that. I thought they said the winner on Friday would re-enter the house (Friday) – after the new HoH is won and after the nominations. Of course if Frank wins HoH and the returnee was Tiff, she would be safe anyway. Ha!

      Maybe Julie will tell us more tomorrow night?

      • Hopefully we will get a small live moment on Sunday and they will let us know who the winner is or we will have to wait until next Thursday. Tiffany winning over the guys who got voted out will be a miracle. Hopefully she is the one going home this week.

  7. So what REALLY happened between Corey and Nicole last night? I don’t watch the feeds.

      • It looked like Corey was giving Nic a belly/leg rub. They haven’t even kissed yet so it doesn’t seem likely that she’d let him take it further.

    • Someone called it fingergate. I think you can make your own conclusions….

      • I doubt that anything inappropriate happened under the covers since I believe Corey is pretending to like Nicole when the one he is really into seems to be Paulie.

      • I’m just re-iterating what someone else said, not that I believe it, because I think Nicole is just a beard for Corey, he is in his pre-gay stage imo.

  8. Still rooting for a Davonne eviction. Frank should work on James and Paul. Those are the two most likely you can flip. Explain to them that they do not have solid alliances to take them far in the game. Join me (Frank) and I will offer to protect you. We can help each other go further. With the other alliance, you will only be on the fringes and they can easily discard you after they use you for your votes. You want to win this game and that $500,000, then, play it to win! Do not let them control your votes then, evict you after!

  9. Whoever comes back into the house will become the main target. If it’s Victor Frank and Bridgett will reel him in. And if Frank is successful at flipping the vote to keep Tiffany it’s fun times ahead.
