It was an emotional day in the Big Brother 18 house as the HoH named his nominees for eviction and one of them went off the deep end. Oh, and America made its second Care Package choice. Read on to get all the details and drama.
Big Brother 18 Live Feed Highlights – Friday, August 5, 2016:
10:30 AM BBT – Nicole is awake. She’s chatting with Bridgette as they get ready for the day.
11:00 AM BBT – Just Nicole around as she camtalks about life in general.
11:30 AM BBT – Nicole still chatting with the camera and now discussing Corey and finding another guy on Big Brother.
12:30 PM BBT – Still just Nicole as she wanders the house while everyone else is sleeping.
1:00 PM BBT – Corey is awake and talking with Nicole. She’s telling him about her dream of being kidnapped and chased.
1:05 PM BBT – Nicole asks what Corey had listed as his occupation. He says bartender, but production made him change that. Nicole explains they don’t want bartenders or waitresses listed. We get Fish as she discusses this.
1:50 PM BBT – Natalie has been in the bathroom getting ready while Nicole and Corey talk in the Lounge. Nicole is nervous about Natalie and wants her gone. Nicole finally admits that she wants Natalie gone because she thinks Natalie has a crush on Corey and is concerned that Natalie is or was in love with him. (Nicole, go ahead on home now.)
2:22 PM BBT – Care Package falls in to the backyard and the winner is… James! He gets to nullify two votes at the next eviction.
2:30 PM BBT – Victor is practicing his nomination speech for Michelle and Zakiyah. He’ll blame Michelle’s on something she said and upsetting him so close to winning HoH. Zakiyah was about him thinking she doesn’t like him. He’s going to take Mardi Gras beads out of his hat and toss them to each of the ladies at the end.
2:35 PM BBT – James is already planning how to waste his special power by nullifying his allies votes strategically. He consults with Paulie.
2:40 PM BBT – Michelle worrying to Zakiyah that they’re in danger. Zakiyah is disappointed in herself from dropping in the comp.
2:45 PM BBT – Nicole is sure America hates her because she didn’t get the package and James did.
2:55 PM BBT – James worries if there’s something he’s missing because he thought him and Victor were good now but then America sent him this power after Victor got HoH. James doesn’t know the voting was going on all week.
3:10 PM BBT – Michelle talking with Paul and worried about being nominated.
3:20 PM BBT – Paulie tells Corey and James that Victor wants to keep Bridgette but the guys want to keep their ladies instead. Paulie wants Bridgette out during a DE. They all three agree that Michelle needs to go this week.
3:25 PM BBT – Corey warns Paulie and James that Natalie would never nominate a girl or go after one. He says Natalie really wants a girl to win.
3:30 PM BBT – James told Paulie and Corey that if they want Natalie to be the first of their ladies to go then he’ll let them do that. James wonders if Nicole would put him up, but Corey promises James that Nicole wouldn’t put up any of the guys.
3:40 PM BBT – Paulie says they need to target Victor when there are at least 3 girls still there so they have back up plans in case Victor wins Veto or HoH. He tells Corey and James that they’ve made it to Jury and now need to work on their plan to get them three to F3.
3:45 PM BBT – Nicole shows up and the game talk ends. She’s worried that Corey might not like the color of the shirt she’s wearing but he likes it. These are the things that drive Nicole’s game focus.
3:55 PM BBT – Nicole and Corey alone when Nicole says she’s willing to go after Victor, but she doesn’t want him to know it’s coming.
4:05 PM BBT – Nicole asks Paulie who should go, Michelle or Zakiyah. Paulie says he’s cool with either going then he proceeds to explain in detail why it needs to be Michelle.
4:10 PM BBT – Corey goes in to great detail how he was cast just days before the season. He says Robyn Kass told him he was lucky because he got to skip months of scrutiny and interviews that other applicants have to endure. Amazingly we don’t get Fish as he discusses this even when James says “you’re not allowed to discuss production!”
4:25 PM BBT – Paul is talking with Victor about keeping Michelle. Paulie arrives and Paul pushes back on targeting Michelle this week. Paulie suddenly agrees that Zakiyah can go. This is a trick. He’s using Derrick’s method of agreeing to something he doesn’t want but only temporarily. Later he’ll return to the confrontation and win it over. Paulie was advised by Derrick in preseason so this method isn’t surprising.
5:00 PM BBT – Feeds cut for the nominations.
Read on for the rest of Friday’s highlights as tears and hysteria made a big return to the house when the nominations ceremony was over and one of the noms did not like how she was treated in the process.
