The Big Brother 18 Jury House is starting to fill up its roster and rooms as the season winds toward the September 21st finale on CBS. So far five seats have been filled with four more left to go before their big decision on who deserves to win the $500,000 prize.
After the Jury Battle Back twist was complete we saw Victor Arroyo return to the house as the first four Jurors returned to their brief vacation home. Not such a bad deal. Well except for Paule who probably wants to be anywhere but there right now.
As the Jury continues to build its ranks we’ll be able to look and see which of the remaining active players has more potential support in their corner. Here’s who we have so far getting ready to return and cast their vote in a few more weeks.
Big Brother 18 Jury roster:
- Da’Vonne Rogers
- Zakiyah Everette
- Bridgette Dunning
- Paulie Calafiore
- Michelle Meyer
- TBD: Natalie or James
- TBD: Juror #7
- TBD: Juror #8
- TBD: Juror #9
If we compare the Jurors list to the original teams and who we still have left in the game we’ve got Da’Vonne and Zakiyah from Team Big Sister with Paul left in the house. Category 4 (Team Frank) has been completely wiped out with Michelle arriving at Jury last week to join teammates Bridgette and Paulie. Team Unicorn (Team James) still has Victor, Natalie, and James left in the game and no Jurors, but obviously they’ll be down one by the end of the week. Team Freakzoids (Team Nicole) lost two players pre-Jury and now has its last two still active in the game.
There are several combinations for how the F2 could end up before we get a better idea of who will be filling the decision maker seats. Paul, Victor, Corey, and Nicole will definitely move on to the next round with either James or Natalie. If things go to the F4’s plan then the remaining half of Jatalie will be off to Jury as well. Should that work out we can start taking a stab at Jury votes for the final two possibilities.
These are very raw and early considerations below and we usually get some surprises by the end of the season when it’s time to vote so I wouldn’t put any of these suggestions down in stone, but we can still look at the options for some light fun.
Michelle wanted to see Natalie get to the end, but that is likely to be cut short this week. She’d probably like to vote for James as a backup but if that choice isn’t there either then she’ll be none too pleased to vote for the others. She called Victor a butt kisser on the way out but if she had to pick between him or Nicorey to win at the end I think she’d go with Victor or Paul. I’m expecting a bitter Juror with Michelle.
Paulie wouldn’t say who was playing the best game during our eviction interview but I would expect him to vote for either Nicorey over Paul or Victor. Victor got him out after he got Victor out but I don’t think he’ll give Victor any credit for the comeback move. Probably another bitter Juror here too.
Bridgette was impressed with Paul’s game so I’d see her more likely going for him or Victor over a Nicorey option. If her only two options were Nicorey then I’m not so sure she’d vote for Nicole after her situation where Frank and Bridgette decided she couldn’t be trust.
Da’Vonne and Zakiyah are both coming from Team Big Sister and even though Paul’s HoH led to Day’s eviction I think they’d both end up supporting him over Nicorey.
If Natalie ends up in the Jury I would not expect her to vote for either Nicole or Corey. She blames them for the consequences of her choices and told James if he aligned with either of them after she left then she’d never talk to them again. James probably wants to vote for Nicole then Corey second but if he’s too afraid to upset Natalie even after the game is over then he may bail on voting for either of them.
I don’t see a lot of paths to victory for Nicorey unless they arrive at the F2 side by side. When either goes up against Paul or Victor I think it’ll be a Sitting Duck victory this season. If either duo gets to the end together then we’d have a lot more thinking to go through for which way the votes will end up.
How do you think the Big Brother 18 season will turn out? If James and Natalie are both picked off who might win out in the end? Can Nicole or Corey beat either Victor or Paul at the F2? Share your thoughts below.
