‘Big Brother 18’ Live Feeds Week 11: Monday Highlights

Being on the block together is really getting to Natalie and James as they spent half of the day in the Big Brother 18 house bickering. Meanwhile The Final Four continues to debate, but not really, as to which one of the two they’re sending home this week.

Victor Arroyo passes out from boredom on BB18

If you’ve got the Live Feeds (Free Trial) then you can watch all of these moments with the Flashback feature to go back and watch those important conversations or funny scenes you may have missed.

Big Brother 18 Live Feed Highlights – Monday, September 5, 2016:

9:50 AM BBT – HGs finally getting up and starting their day. Natalie goes out for a jog and some weights while the others get dressed.

10:50 AM BBT – Corey was called to the Diary Room to prep for the PoV Ceremony.

11:30 AM BBT – Feeds are back. Natalie is preparing for her last week there. Natalie again upset that they worked with Nicole and Corey instead of sticking with their F5 group. James takes the blame again.

11:30 AM BBT – Paul talks with Nicole about who they should evicted. He mentions James told him that Nicole had also been telling James that Paul was coming after them. Nicole denies it as a crazy story.

11:40 AM BBT – HGs have shifted to the backyard to get some sun. Natalie wonders if the next eviction may arrive early. James said they’d find out beforehand.

12:00 PM BBT – James and Natalie talk about him taking his daughter to Disney World. He’s worried about the cost and challenges of traveling with a four year old. General chatter about traveling.

12:15 PM BBT – Nicole lets Corey know that Paul heard from James about them telling Natalie that Paul was coming after James. Nicole denied it at the time but now worries that Paul will want James out. They plan to continue to push for Natalie to be evicted but not so hard and act like they’re considering evicting James.

1:10 PM BBT – Natalie and Nicole chat and discuss how stressful the game has been on mind and body. Both agree their showmances were a rock to rely on during the harder times of the game.

1:35 PM BBT – Natalie again tells James she thinks it’s her week to go. He agrees that there is likely talk going on about it but doesn’t suggest it’s definite.

1:40 PM BBT – Paul and Nicole discuss again trying to blindside James this week so he isn’t ready to compete.

2:10 PM BBT – Natalie tells James she won’t campaign against him but he says it’s okay if she does against him.

2:20 PM BBT – James promises Natalie he’ll tell her if he finds out he’s staying.

2:45 PM BBT – Natalie complaining to James that she made the worst Big Brother move possible by turning on Victor. James says she didn’t because how could they know he’d come right back. If there was no Jury Battle Back, explains James, then Victor would be gone, Paul would be on his own, and Nicole and Corey would have stuck with them.

3:30 PM BBT – Nicole and Corey hanging out playing dominoes.

5:00 PM BBT – Natalie and Paul are talking about life back home and family. General life interests.

5:25 PM BBT – Paul tries the phone booth again but no luck. He heads to take a nap.

5:30 PM BBT – James tells Victor he hopes he’s not getting played [by Natalie] on TV. Victor agrees that he’s worried about that for James too. Natalie arrives and the talk stops but James and Natalie don’t acknowledge each other.

5:40 PM BBT – James and Natalie are alone in the backyard but not talking. James finally starts and says other HGs can sense the tension between them. Natalie gets annoyed and says there’s no tension and she just wants to relax and enjoy her last few days. Commence arguing for 20 mins as they say the same things back and forth, over and over.

  1. At this point I wish they had Live Feeds in the Jury House. (They’re all being paid so earn it a bit.) If Natalie goes this week James is going to be a mopey baby slugging around looking heartbroken. And if James goes Natalie’s going to attach herself to Victor like a Remora. Therefore I hope James goes because after a season of Meech and Paulie I don’t think I can tolerate much more #MiserablyMopey.

    • I don’t think if James stays that he is gonna mope. .I think hes gonna be relived that Natalie is gone…James may be lonesome but nooo hes not gonna mope.. I know Natalie would elated if James left.. James is waking up after a 2 month puppy love slumber. Natalies pissed because James has stopped campaigning for “her”…James stopped doing that when Paul told him that Natalie was throwing him UTB…(Natalie does not know about the talk with Paul)….The more Natalie talks the deeper she digs her hole with James.. He is catching on that she has been using him to get farther in the game…Unless I miss my guess James is “playing” Natalie this week and is trying to keep things civil with her till one of them is evicted…We just have to see how the “nomance’ plays out..

    • At this point, I wish the broadcast shows were all jury house. It would be much more fun to watch than a show with Natalie and James bickering, which is what I expect we will get on Wednesday. I would much rather watch the women deal with Paulie in the jury house.

    • I agree I really thought Sunday’s show would show updates in the jury house. What a wasted opportunity for production to keep things interesting. I usually am rewinding & re-listening to what was said. On Sunday it kind of didn’t really matter to me.

  2. Nicole kills me. She’s constantly worried that people will be loyal to Corey and her. But after she makes a F4 with Paul & Vic, now she’s saying she wants to be F3 with James. Grr.

    • How is that a problem? I get that her whine is impossible to deal with but it feels like going to the end with James (as opposed to Vic or Paul) is a much smarter game move, no? Victor’s going to be hard to beat if he makes it to F2 and the Jury reward his repeated wins. And Paul seems to have played well and had a much better social game. Seems like she might actually be thinking. James is a lot easier to win against than V&P are.

      • As much as I want Vic or Paul to win, from here on in everyone needs to be playing for themselves and figure out how best to place themselves for the next rounds. Loyalty is nice but they are going to have to betray each other if they want to win.

    • That’s the smart thing, but she should have thought about that before they betrayed James and Nat. I just hate that Victor wants to take her to the finals because of his stupid crush.

  3. 11:00 PM BBT – Paul talking with Victor suggests best case is Nicole wins HoH so the next round they go against Corey in the next HoH comp.

    WHAT?!?!?! Great, just great. Paul is so stupid if he throws this HOH, Victor or Paul WILL go home if Paul doesn’t win HOH. They’ll be nominated as a pair by the remaining three so even if one wins veto the other goes home. Why oh why would he think Nicole would keep them over James?

    • Yeah, I had the same reaction when I read that. Does he not see that if Nicole wins there is a good chance that he or Vic will be evicted? I can’t believe that he is that naive to think that Nicorey won’t be coming after them next round just like they would be going after Nicorey.

    • Because Nicorey had the opportunity the week before and didn’t take it. Paul and Vic now trust them 100%. That’s why giving Vic the $5000 was actually a genius move by Corey. Complete faith in the f4 alliance.

      • Well Paul’s an idiot to trust them going forward. The only reason Nicorey saved them last week was so they wouldn’t come for them next, but can easily take one out next week bc it’ll then be top 4. Nicole will have a 3 out of 4 chance of being in the finale since Corey and James would both take her. Such a joke that her of all people is guaranteed $50k for doing absolutely nothing but sleeping.

      • Even if she somehow makes final 2 she won’t win. The jury won’t vote for her no matter who she’s against. That’s why everyone would take her to final 2. And yeah Paul and Vic owe loyalty to Nicole and Corey this week only but considering Nicole wants to team up with James, he’d be an idiot to throw this next hoh, if he doesn’t win, chances are him and Vic are on the block together

      • Oh I know she won’t win, I think everyone there including her knows she won’t win which is why she’s guaranteed second place if Vic or Paul leave this coming week bc the remaining player of that duo would as well take her to the finale. It’s so dumb someone can come into the house now and float to $50k.

      • I think she could win against James but probably nobody else. I think Da might respect her as a player and Zak would follow suit. Vic Paulie and Paul would definitely give it to her over James. Even if she cut Corey, I still think he’d vote for her. Michelle, if she were a true super fan, should give her the vote, but we know she’s petty so she wouldn’t. Natalie and Bridgette wouldn’t either. But she only needs 5 so it wouldn’t matter. Let’s face it, she’ll have a much better resume than James.

      • I haven’t been following fan reaction as much this year (reading this blog, but not in the comments so much), and haven’t been on the feeds, so I know I’m missing a lot of detail, but is the prevailing view that she’s totally undeserving? I’m not rooting for her, but the scorecard implies she played pretty well, no? She seems to be driving Nicorey decisions, and they’re both in final 5 despite the showmance. She’s never been nominated, despite the 3-nom roadkill weeks and being a returning player. She survived being called out publicly several times and now she might have a 3-in-5 shot of being in the finale (if we’re reading James’ loyalty to her right). All-in-all that’s not a horrible resume.

      • What you’re saying about Nicole has been clear to me all season and I don’t understand why most people are so unwilling to give Nicole credit for her gameplay.

      • I agree. People can’t call her a snake and then say she’s been doing nothing at the same time. They’re calling her last night because she made moves they didn’t like. Just because she out maneuvered many of the favorites they’re not giving her credit. She has been playing the game.

      • As someone who is a fan of Paul and it Nicole, I’ll admit that if Nicole’s a snake then so is Paul. They’ve both lied, played both sides of the house, and teamed up with people in power to further their game. Take away Paul’s loud mouth and Nicole’s showmance and they’ve basically played a similar game

    • I hope Paul goes home. He is definitely the wrong person to take. I think him and Victor have a 50/50 chance of winning.

      • I’m not sure jury will vote for Paul. Even last night it seemed Nicole & Victor were kind of rolling eyes on some of his comments cuz they’re always regarding himself.

    • Victor did immediately tell Paul “to win it and worry about the next week later”. Hopefully Paul really listened to Victor.

  4. Where do I even begin? IMO it looks like Nat is a user, atleast in this game. Blaming James for everything is not cool. Hope she goes this week and James may have a fighting chance, not that I think he’d win, but he can atleast play w/out her leaching on him. He needs to wake up and stop even entertaining women like her. He seems like a really nice guy, but for his age he’s not too bright with women/relationships/etc. Hope he can learn from this experience, and NO I don’t think he needs to come back to BB anytime soon!

    • James went through the same kind of “experience” last year, and obviously did NOT learn a thing! IMO, I think James sets his sights way to high for a girlfriend. “IF” he ever does get a “Girlfriend” that last more than a one night stand or a BB season, will he know what to do with her??

    • Well James did blow her off every time Nat told him she had a hunch about something. And she was always right and was ALWAYS wrong, she’s pretty perceptive. And he refused to vote out Corey instead of Victor. But Nat shouldn’t have been dumb enough to put victor/paul up based on Nicole’s word.

  5. I find it amusing that James would discuss his concerns over traveling with his daughter, and the COST…. Uh…. Didn’t he have the opportunity to win 500K? Wouldn’t that make it easier to do things with your daughter? Wouldn’t it cover the costs for such a trip? hmmm. Unfortunately he was using the wrong Head all season and just now realized hes playing Big Brother. Come on dude. Such a dissapointment.

    • Him talking about cost is a laugh. He already is getting paid just for returning, he is getting a weekly stipend and he gets paid extra if he goes to jury. I can see him making close to 100G even if he does not win.
      He acts like traveling with a child is hard? Well maybe he should try it for once. Try more than one child. Geez, people do it everyday. What I gather is his daughter lives in another state from him. This is only the second time I can recall him mentioning her.

    • I’m really hoping that James doesn’t even make it to second place with his horrible game play. America should take notice even if he is their favorite and not vote for him. AFP should be given to someone who actually played a decent game and was liked by most.

    • It’s interesting he never talks about his daughter. My guess is they aren’t all that close, but still you would think that he would mention her from time to time.

      • Soooonot true. He talks about his daughter often. Sometimes a conversation just doesn’t arise to talk about your 4 year old with a bunch of strangers. Duh? It’s a little crappy to suggest he isn’t close to his daughter. These are people on reality TV playing a game for our enjoyment.

    • And Day dropped off the wall to enjoy the rest of the summer ‘in luxury’ in the jury house…… Hmmm!!

      • I think no one brings Day up is because shes a lost cause, and has been since the moment she ruined her game, which happened within the first few weeks of her being in the house. I saw her give up during the jury back comp, and honestly, she did exactly what I thought she would because shes all mouth and no bite. She talks a big game, but NEVER delivers. James should’ve learned from his season that no one can be trusted, not even the people telling you to your face that you can trust them. Especially this close to the end. Everyone is looking out for themselves (or at least they should be by now), and he has proven over and over that he doesn’t take this seriously. He could’ve been HOH instead of Nicole, but he threw the win to her.

  6. Branden – please consider a post about AFP. I’d be interested to hear your perspective on who will/should win, along with a poll of the readers. Thanks!

  7. Natalie still telling james she campaigned for him and thats why shes leaving. Granted it is a strategy, but i have never seen a bb player rely on guilt tripping, victimization, and begging more than her. The way she was trying to get vic to throw her hoh was very annoying.

  8. Kinda funny how everyone was so sure Vic and Paul were gonna flip on Nicole and Corey when Nicole is the one talking about taking James to final 3. Thing is I think James would rather team up with Paul and Vic since Nicole and Corey turned on him. Also I think Corey is getting sick of Nicole meanwhile Vic seems to have a thing for her. Next week should be interesting regardless of who wins hoh. Some real cards will be shown.

  9. “10:55 PM BBT – James and Natalie are joking about Jury House life and how bad Paulie must have it there now.”

    Only positive in here

  10. Every season you hear Big Brother say how the season is going to be better, bigger with more twists. I have a suggestion for them, why not next year have people who are 30-35 and up be the majority in the House. Stop having a House filled at 90% or more of just 20 somethings. This season was the worst in terms of the feeds, high-school catty mindless conversations over and over. Immaturity and women interested in being in a showmance more than playing the game. HG’s who confuse being loud to having a personality. You have given us 4 season of Jersey Shore/VH1 because you wanted to cater to the young audience…maybe just maybe its time for BB to care about what the audience that has been loyal to them since BB1 again….we dont care to watch people in showmances, having sex, sleeping until 1-2 in the afternoon….

    • Absolutely agree. All of the teeny bopper drama going on gets tiresome. A few twenty-somethings – okay. But it would definitely be a better show if at least half of the players were 30+. Also tired of one token “old guy” who immediately is targeted by the kiddie crowd. Need a substantial change in player demographics. Now THAT would be a good season!
