8:10pm HOH room Nat and James – Nat says if we take out Corey who is going to be in control of the house? Paul and Victor. We can’t let them run the house. James says they’re going to try and take out you, Meech.. Nat says we’re taking out Vic .. he was my pawn but we’re going to be f**ked if we.. I was hoping hoping Paul didn’t win today. I can beat Corey, you can beat Corey. I know that Nicole and Corey woudl not put us up. They would put up Paul and Meech. We’re about to save Corey so he saves us his life. James says yeah we saved him twice. Nat says if we don’t take out Victor they are going to run the house. They’re going to take each other to the final two. Honestly this is a big move.. I’m mad at myself for flipping and flopping but I had to do that to come to this decision. Vic needs to go. I was mad at myself and crying but if Paul pulls himself down Corey and Nicole are going to trust us even more. Nat says its better for us to take Corey and Nicole to final 4. Nicole is a nice girl. Vic and Paul are going to run this house. They’re going to beat all of us. James says Vic is collateral damage this week. He has 9 comp wins. Nat says I really don’t want Paul to win. James says if they get past this week .. one of them is making it all the way. Nat says the sucky thing is I trust Vic. Honestly I don’t want Vic to go but Paul is going to run this house and he is going to use Vic to get to the end. Nat says he keeps saying he keeps getting f**ked in the house. I keep getting f**ked. James says this is Big brother, that’s what you signed up for. Nat says I told you I wanted to make big moves. Today I wanted Vic to stay and Paul to go. I came to this without you even having to tell me.

Big-Brother-18- 2016-08-20 21-44-28-232

8:40pm – 8:50pm In the kitchen – Nicole, Corey, James and Nat. Nicole says there is a 75% chance we win HOH next week. Corey says no 100% motherfreaker! James asks if you win HOH ya’ll are going to put up Paul and ? Corey says Michelle. Nicole says but she is not my target. Nicole says Vic is a beast at mental comps. He is not only a physical beast but a mental beast. James says if Paul wins HOH I can guarantee one of us will be up there. Nicole says I am confident we will win HOH next week. Nicole promises that if she wins she wouldn’t put them (Nat & James) up.

9:10pm Nicole and Corey head to bed to chat about random things.

Big-Brother-18- 2016-08-20 21-59-28-907

9:10pm – 9:30pm HOH room – Nat says Meech is going to be pissed. Can you just pretend that I didn’t know. James says yeah. Nat says To get Nicole out is not going to be a hard thing to do.

Big-Brother-18- 2016-08-20 22-00-54-366

9:55pm – 10:30pm Michelle, James and Paul. Michelle asks James are you close with Nicole and Corey? James says not really. We never talk. Meech says they’re not to be underestimated. Paul says they’re not. James asks what they think the care package would be. Paul says its going to be an HOH take over. Think about it.. it went from Never-not, super safety, Co-HOH .. to HOH take over. James doesn’t think it will be that. Paul says Nicole has a lot of fans its not unrealistic to think Corey might get the package. Why not take out that option since NIcole can’t get the package. James says its your HOH if you put up Nicole and you want her out I will vote her out. Meech says Corey is a better competitor though. They talk about jury. Meech says Paulie and Z are probably boning every night. James says he’s probably got a baby. Meech asks do you think anyone would come back? James says no. There’s 28 days left that’s like cheating coming back with 10 days left.

9:50pm – 10:30pm Natalie is doing her makeup in the HOH bed alone. She finishes up and then goes to sleep with the lights on.

10:40pm – 10:55pm Paul tells Meech if I somehow get evicted just don’t let Corey and Nicole win. Meech says she wouldn’t. Paul says I just don’t think they deserve it. Vic joins them. Paul tells Meech to be careful when you talk to Nicole and Corey. Meech says don’t worry about me .. what are they going to say put up James?

10:55pm Nicole and Corey are testing each other on what information the remember about each other.

11:15pm – 12am Safari room – Meech, Vic and Paul are chatting. Paul asks Meech how does if feel to be final 6. Meech says if feels great Paul! Vic says top 5. Paul says I’m taking it a week at a time. Meech says I’m scared someone is going to came back. Paul says if Paulie comes back I’ll be like (he rolls his eye). Meech heads to bed.

256 thoughts on “James “Vic is collateral damage this week!” Nat “I’m not wasting my HOH on Nicole.”

      1. No but I don’t like Natalie because she has changed her mind five times since HOH. She is not strategic or strong or smart. Telling Vic “you are not my target, you are not going anywhere”, and then letting James run her hoh. Corey was right, she is a d@ck chaser. Plus she is a whiney bratty self absorbed baby.

          1. I am sorry but I disagree. What game move? She even said it herself that she changes her mind all the time and that she wishes that she could make a decision and stick with it. How can you even trust her in your own alliance when she can be so easily influenced. I don’t hate her but she sucks in this game.

            1. Almost every single HOH change their minds at one point or another. They think outloud and they talk strategy. Since it’s a “dumb girl” doing it, she’s an idiot that can’t think for herself? How do you know that playing the “dumb girl” isn’t her strategy? It worked for Jordan…

              1. as long as the least deserving floater this season gets the check for 500k it might as well be meech she certainly qualifies

          2. Everyone loved Natalie when she was the sweet girl that nobody listened to. Now that she’s using her power to make big moves, viewers are turning on her. Seems nothing is more unattractive than a woman with power.

            1. Have not like Natalie from day one – saw through her fake “I’m so genuine” act from the get go …. She is a mean (see what she’s like behind people’s backs), petty, insecure, cry baby disguised as a cute, genuine, woman. She’s the most dangerous kind of woman – at least Michelle wears her meanest on her sleeve. Natalie is a wolf in sheep clothing.

          3. Natalie is a cowardly gamer. She wants to make big moves, but wants “Jamesy to act like she didn’t know” …that’s right Nat, put it all on Jamesy so it bites him in the butt…which I hope happens actually.
            Too bad Nat, any chance of getting Vic’s attention now will be a big ZERO…we all know its him you fancy. …the names says it all…Nat gnat

        1. taking Vic out is the right move, but this decision was not made by Natalie or any HG’s prior to production instructing her to place Vic and Paul on the block. Nat and Michelle were forced to make their decisions by production. Simon and Dawg have reported it here, and I and other posters here have witnessed it on the live feeds. Natalie is production’s puppet now. her mood, demeanor and behavior with her conversations are so forced and phony. this lost girl all of sudden who knows absolutely squat about BB is gonna get a Dan Gheesley edit when Vic gets evicted on Thursday. she “LITERALLY” cried for Vic yesterday saying she was “CONFUSED” and today she’s telling James “we have to take out Vic”. she shi77ed on Nicole and Corey last night and today she’s telling James that Nicole and Corey are good people. let’s not forget how bad this season’s game play has been by this cast of idiots. the biggest legit game move was executed by Vic’s HOH last week. every season there is situations where we the fans can pin point where production tampers with the game. this season was TAINTED from the start. I had nothing against Frank being a returning vet, but bringing back Day, James and Nicole? those three didn’t bring anything to the table even in their first seasons. look how those three so called vets are solely responsible in how bad this season turned out to be. production should be embarrassed in how they window dressed Nicole, Day and James as so called BB vets this season. production’s has blatantly reset the button too many times and it all points in the direction that they are fixing the game for certain individuals to be crown this year’s BB winner.

          1. If production did get involved, then maybe they did it because they want Vic to challenge Paulie in the jury buy back. Vic has a better chance of beating Paulie than Corey.

            1. that is exactly my take on things. If vic isn’t voted out, then we have no chance of anyone other than Paulie returning into the house. Corey won’t fight for it even if he could, the comp is going to be slightly set up for girls to have at least a slim chance of completing it, because there are more girls than guys in the jury back. vic has already done high pressure multi tasking comps to get thru the Battle back, so as a competitor in this, plus BB history (no one ever came back twice i don’t think), this is exactly what production would want to see go down.

              why else would nat be told by them to work with nicorey, there is no real benefit to nat to work with either group, and more benefit to work with vic/paul/michelle than two people who don’t do anything, and so can’t actually help keep her safe from eviction. are they going to win the next HOH and not put her and james up? probably not, probably paul/vic will win HOH and get the super power, and no one can stop them.

              of course i and production are assuming vic will be the winner of jury back.

              In that POV comp, a couple of people did well, paul just got one more than the others. Nat did terrible, and James did worse. and they studied. corey i don’t know, but he didn’t study, so if he did better than james (assuming james didn’t deliberately answer wrong when he knew the right answer),

              if paulie does win the battle back, jatalie are toast. no way nicorey will abide by their socalled promises

          2. I’m really worried if Vic is voted out Paulie will win back, and final three will be corey, nicole & paulie, and if paulie is final 2 with either he’ll win cause nic and corey did nothing. Also, if Paulie makes f2 with a girl the guys might all vote for him.

              1. I feel like an idiot, but I have no clue who or what Kraken means. I’ve seen you refer to it a cpl times and I’m sooooooooo confused. Any help????

          3. Look we are used to Production rigging things. Maybe Debbie Wasserman Schultz is really Alison Groder. People are so mad that Big Brother might be rigged, but not that Hillary’s election was rigged?? Helloooo SUPER DELEGATES!!!! SO, no worries here, I have seen a rigged election before!! DEMOCRACY!!! LOVE IT!

          4. If Vic is evicted and comes back in a Jury buyback and then wins the game, how is that fair? Imagine a winner that had been evicted twice. Or even once. What would that say about the game?

        1. this ACP should of been an earlier one not the last one.
          Geeezz dum@ss production
          Do Not Want James To Win ANYTHING!!!
          He is starting to remind me of Andy H.

      2. You’re absolutely right….but we can hate ones process and implementation of a game decision.

        Nat makes everything personal, where she’s the victim, then makes decisions based on the last person she talked to and her weird, interpretation of stuff that’s not there, wasn’t said. After vilifying Paul, then Corey, she’s now decided Paul’s worse and Vic is scary with him. Fair enough….could have lived without the Nat’s hurt heart nonsense, but it’s a reasonable call in the end.

        It’s reasonable because we’re late in the game and there’s 3 people to pick from and Vic is the toughest out of those 3. Him being tied to the sneakiest, bossiest person in the house plus their transparent designs to draw Michelle as their 3rd makes Vic the clear and present danger over the isolated, lazy competitor Corey/Nicole. However, Nat wants to do this sneaky and bossy: James is to blindside Michelle (why not level with her right now to keep her close and have her stage manage Paul to keep him trained on Corey/Nicole, while she makes nice with them so they stay trained on Paul?).

        Ultimately, Nat’s no different than Paulie, dictating the game, who’s to do what, and taking personal shots at Paul, Corey, and soon Vic. There’s no way she will be able to help herself and the next few days we’ll hear about how he rejected her, goofed on her pants, and every other slight Vanity Nat perceived…

        1. Yea I don’t understand why they need to bring/have a personal reason to put someone up. Keep it simple and they would respect your game move when and if it came to Jury. Nat could have just said “Hey you 2 are the strongest pair in the game and in order for me to get further I and putting you 2 up.” All that BS about her hurt heart or who lied (they all have lied at some point) just pisses people off. You can have your personal reasons for wanting someone put but if you keep it on a game level they might give you a vote. if you make it personal they will also make it personal and damn sure not give you a vote

      3. James is only thinking of his game not Nats. He sure likes her to shut it up and not do any thinking.
        Victor is Natalie ally
        Corey and Nicole are Jame’s ally

        Natalie needs to think for herself. If it came down to James, Nicole, Nat final 3. Nat could win against Nicole not James.

    1. haha to all the fans that cheered every week when someone who actually played hard got evicted congrats this is what you get weak non factor floaters like nat and james might win the game yay!

      1. They were clear: Because she said she made a decision without James. No where did they say it was because she made a move they didn’t like. This board is worse than the players in the house. I have to stop reading comments and just the updates.

        1. … a certain poster always takes Nat’s side no matter how he has to twist it and often to the point of calling other posters names and making fun of them. I suggest you start by just skipping right over his comments. I choose not to read his negativity.

      1. You know how boring this week will be if Nat sticks to one target and nothing else happens? Nat’s motive are questionable but the fans here are sure talking about it.

        The thing that bugs me the most is the amount of advertising money that CBS makes on Big Brother and yet we are in the screw job position of paying more money to watch big brother 19 on CBS all access. All access my butt. Greed at its finest. And yes CBS, friendship denied.

        1. Sounds like a real first world problem honestly. Not a big deal to pay for for CBS all access. Most people fast forward when watching the programming anyway. I’m sure they are trying to just expand the usage of that area of their programming. Look at Netflix and their original programming..

            1. I don’t think Frank is eligible…Battle back is for jury members: Da’vonne, Bridgette, Zakiyah, Paulie, and Victor (he will probably be evicted Thursday)

          1. Except, it’s not just for the live feeds….you used to be able to watch the shows that had aired for free. Now you need the all access pass to even watch shows that had already aired. But then again all of the major stations are starting to do this….they found people were stupid enough to pay to watch a missed episode of their favorite TV show….

    2. Its not worth getting all worked up over the players ..the game is designed so that one person/side doesn’t stay in power too long…and of course Production ensures this.

      When the game started I was team 8Pack…because I couldn’t stand Josea’s egotistical rants…but then as 8Pack dissolved..I started liking different players for different reasons….

      I’m currently hoping Victor comes back as he will most likely get evicted Thursday..My reasons are he battle backed, he is a fierce competitor, and although has made comments,he isn’t too unbearable socially…and in my opinion he deserves the grand prize..

      The Pendulum will swing again..

      1. Yes the game is more fun when power swings from one side to the other. My problem is that Paulie was in control until last week. He goes out and everyone is on board for a Nicole/Corey sweep and then fight it out at final 5. Production for whatever reason decided Nicole and Corey needed to be protected so the told Natalie to work with them. Meech hated Nicole and the minute she had the power to put her up she turns against the guys who had been working with her and keeps her safe?! I could see Natalie turning on them but Meech is alone and has a better chance with Paul and Victor than Nicole and Corey. It’s gone from it seems production is protecting them to production coming right out and saying they are untouchable. No wonder they didn’t bother to study.

    3. I had hope for Natalie. I can’t stand how production got to her and now she’s protecting Nicole. Nicole is so annoying and even more so now that she’s being shielded.

    4. Canceling the feeds. When it’s obvious production is pushing house guests a certain way, it’s not fun to watch anymore. Don’t care about seeing BB19, either.

    1. considering paul won veto that doesnt even make sense not to mention getting rid of vic is by far the smartest move they can make

      1. Absolutely the best move. I really like Vic. At the end of the day I think he’s a pretty nice guy. If Corey goes instead it almost guarantees Paulie coming back, and I really think he’s so narcissistic that even though he’s used the excuse his melt down , etc. was all strategic, I believe he actually showed his true colors. Bridgette probably wouldn’t have a chance but after most everyone, especially Z and Day , Nichole and Meech, were so mean to her she deserves to be there! I also don’t think that Nat is either stupid or using James. I think she really is a people person and she generally loves James. She just isn’t the loose goosey as the other two showmance girls are. That’s called genuine friendship and respect, and if they are meant to be together they still will be friends first. I respect her for her loyalty to James ,and I just think she has learned by trial and error so she is willing to make moves. I also can’t help but remember of the mean girls in the house. Bronte and Nat never got on board with belittling Bridgette. That’s truly how the other girls are. I think people are reading Nat wrong or are just jealous that she is cute with a great personality. And actually I can forgive Meech for getting all the BS going bc she realized her behavior was plain wrong, in destroying a girl’s self esteem. Z and Paulie on the other hand are terrible people on any human level. Paul was there too for a min. But he too saw the errors of his ways. Corey and Nichole are useless bottom feeders. My favorites to go to the end bc they learned from watching, and learning from their mistakes would be Vic and Nat. Vic would have to win for battling back, playing a pretty excellent game with a positive attitude, and Nat wins second place.

      1. yep, I agree, If nat can pull this off then she making a very big move and smart move, from this move making Nat at least deserve to be a winner than nicorey.

      2. Because evicting someone is essentially meaningless, since we have a situation where a player who has been evicted twice has a very real chance of coming back and winning the game, so why bother evicting anybody? Why bother being HOH? Why bother trying to win any competitions? Production will just null and void your decisions with cheap gimmicks.

    2. Even though they don’t know it sending Vic to jury may be the only way to keep Paulie from coming back and working with Nic and Corey to take them out. Unfortunately, if Vic does come back he is going to be pissed and Paul and Vic will no doubt take them out too. So either way they are screwed unless by some miracle Bridgette or Da come back.

      1. yeah. rooting for bridgette, but it’s more than likely going to be an endurance comp (they still haven’t done the slip and slide) which will heavily favor paulie and vic, both of whom are terrible for james and nat’s games. da and z might as well not participate in the buy back we know neither of them are going to win.

  1. I hate to see it go down like that but getting rid of Victor is the right move since Paul won POV. Nicole and Corey are easily disposable

    1. Yes, getting Vic out is a big move, which stings personally because I wanted him to win. However, my fear is this going to poke the sleeping beasts, Corey and Nicole, and actually push them into playing the game. With luck and the right kind of competition, one or both of them could wind up F2, and that’s what I find unacceptable.
      Depending on who comes back, right now I hope Meech and Paul find a way to put the screws to them. And they’re all going to starve because Vic did most of the cooking!

  2. HAHA I love it. That’s what people get for supporting nutless James and 2 ton make-up wearing fake whiny Natalie. I hope Victor comes back and wins HOH and puts up Natalie and James. They deserve to go even before Nicorey…so disappointed in these 2 idiots. Worst part is CBS edit will make them looking like America’s sweethearts and dumb fake lying broad is gonna win AFP.

    1. She’s still the nicest person in there and by no means fake. She just made a game move the hive mind didn’t like so now they have decided she’s a horrible human. Fans are pricks.

      1. SHE DIDN’T MAKE A GAME MOVE! Have you not watched at all?! It started with production. She was ready to get Nicole and Corey. She came out of that DR still on board.

        Then came James.

        What did she really have on Paul? Go ahead, i’ll wait. That’s right, nothing but the same bs she gave Paulie. And who was feeding her the seeds? You got it. Would you, personally, keep two people who laid in bed safe? Would you go along with the plan of a guy who is close to one of the people you want to see go? This is why my comment was what it was. It’s not cause she is getting rid of someone I like. It’s because she can’t think for herself. I mean, my God, she is getting a lot of credit for Paulies eviction when it was Bridgette and Michelle.

        But you’re right, she deserves to win, yeah. You’re right, she has her feet planted firmly on the ground.

    2. You are showing either your age or your mentality. It is a game. Personal attacks, that have nothing to do with game play on this board are getting as bad as watching it on the show. Nat and James are playing their best move at this point. If your in that house and you are HOH, you are going to keep Paul and Vic this late in the game? Now that is just brainless play, if you are trying to win, that is. I prefer smart game play to anything else. I would love for Cory or Nicole to leave but I am not going to bash a player because they aren’t getting out my least favorite player. Personally, I wanted Victor for the win. It could still happen.

      1. Paul and Vic would be exactly who you would want to take to the end if these players were allowed to make their own decisions.

        Neither of them have any friends in jury. Even Paulie hates them now. They have not been sucking up to the other players and neither would get sympathy votes. They just aren’t that sympathetic.

  3. ????cole and Jatalie will shit their pants when they learn Vic has yet another chance to come back into this game and take their heads.

  4. regardless, there is no reason to give corey the 5k bribe. he’ll simply give it to nicole. I’d still rather see Paul with it, i think it will be interesting and fun to see what he would do with this task.

    I really can’t stand the fact that so many are voting corey to get it. nicorey will use it as an excuse to do something shadey, like oh corey bribed me i had to do it.

    1. Paul will use for game play. So my vote is for Paul. Most likely Vic wil be evicted. Corey will find an excuse to give it to Nicole. Not sure what game these two are playing. But it’s not BB.

  5. hate to say it but unfortunately vic is history this week hes simply too strong so yeah we get to watch some floater win 500k smh

    1. There’s more than one way to win BB. The last one standing gets the check. Those are the rules. I’ll still have to go to work the next day so I don’t give a damn.

      1. soooo to be clear you give a damn enough to watch and follow a show thats on 3 days a week then come to obb read all about whats happening in the house then post a judgmental snarky comment.. its just you dont care who actually wins? ok got it :)

        1. You’re implying a lot of things I didn’t say. When did I say I didn’t enjoy watching the show? I do. And yes I enjoy watching who wins and yes I root for people. But after it’s done I won’t care how whoever wins pulled it off or be angry about it. Comp beast, floater, puppet master. If they get the check then they earned it.

          1. Spot on! Thank you for articulating it so well. People are so hung on up the winner being deserving. They don’t realize that they are being manipulated by CBS…the viewers ARE part of the social experiment that makes this show successful. They have these stuffy IRL values and hang-ups, anger/irritation towards certain types of people that they encounter in life which they then project onto the HGs. That coworker who presumably doesn’t deserve their position (perhaps accurate, perhaps a distortion by the observer) but gets by on their perkiness and good looks…so Nat will fit that mold in their mind..as one example. I’d go even further and say that for the most part, if you win the game, then you deserved to win….and if you were evicted or lost in final two, then you deserved that, too….just based on all the variables involved. For instance, If Derrrick had been cut by Cody in the end, he would have deserved it for trusting him to that degree, as Cody would have outplayed him where it counts…in the final HOH. There are many other examples. Yes, that goes for Andy too. What is this rat business? He did what he had to do to get to the end. He has less charm about him that someone like Dr Will, and looks mousy….it’s all about illusions. But it’s all the same type of back stabbing. In the end, this is just a meaningless game…the results self-validate.

      2. i gotta quit watching, i say it every year and i just gotta quit watching, just like cigarettes, i just gotta stop. it is not worth my time to be moved to such emotion towards something that just doesn’t matter. BB and Survivor where vary rarely the person i feel should win or imo deserves to win does.
        So, with this, if victor doesn’t come back I am done completely, i know i will not be missed and probably thumbed down.

    2. Don’t count Vic out. By him leaving this week, he will get to fight Paulie and the others to come back. He might be the only one who can stop Paulie. Vic will be back!

    3. Well if he goes I hope he comes back and wins it all! He is the most deserving and cleanest. Cleanliness is next to Godliness and these are some nasty ass people! Go Victor!!

  6. Voting doesn’t start until Thursday night an hour after eviction. It doesn’t say when voting ends. Best if end of the show includes the battle back and that person (unless it’s Paulie, gag) can be included voted for.

    1. Not so fast says:
      August 20, 2016 at 8:53 pm
      So on the CBS website to vote for the next ACP, it shows voting opens 8/25 7pm PST/ 10pm EST and end 8/26. That’s AFTER the next eviction! WTF?

  7. Glad they aren’t giving in to Paul and Vic’s game. They would have ridden all the way to final 2. This makes it less predictable. If Victor goes home, I honestly have no idea who would win this game (first time in forever), since they all seem to be going against each other hahaha. Loving this season honestly.

  8. Nat is a beast. She is straight using James to get vic out and told james straight to his face to act like nat does not know anything. Everyone here got to give it up to nat. She found the perfect guy as a shield and to do all of her dirty work. She may have to kiss james 2 more times to get to the end. i can guaranty that james will leave the house before Nat.

    1. I don’t think she’s using James on a personal level. But if she uses him as a shield gamewise then good for her. That’s what smart players do.

  9. Vic is the right move but it is upsetting. Nic and Corey are pathetic but survive another week because James is a puss* boy. I wanted my girl Bridge to win the Battle Back but all that does is strengthen Natalie and her b!tch. Might as well have Vic come back and hope he and Paul win and take out any combo of the 2 showmances.

    At this point Paul is the most deserving winner of BB and I like Vic so he would be a worthy winner. Additionally not a fan of Nat but she has made some moves to be a winner (but just such a whiner) and don’t care for Mic. If NiCorey or b!tch boy wins that would make this season a waste.

    Ughh Paulie’s eviction made BB18 fun for about a day till Paulie’s sympathy failed and painfully dragged on.

    1. Don’t know why you think James evicting Vic is a pu$$ move. Even if no one can stand nicole/Corey it’s the best move for his game.
      Personally, James is the most watchable person on here. I am a grandma and watch the feeds and BB every night. I have 6 grandkids from 14, 11, 10, 8 that are here with me all summer and I’ve had them watching BB with me for years.
      In past years, they have watched BBAD with me, but NOT THIS YEAR
      other than James and Nicole, it’s F this, F that! F F F F F These people have no capabilities to speak a single sentence without F F F. WAtching right now, Paul just said F 11 times in three sentences. What a moron. These guys are nasty. They talk about FTs, a$$, and when Paulie and Z were there it was soft porn after 9:00 BBtime.
      Paul and Victor are the worst. Paulie was third, BRIDGETTE had the dirtiest mouth on any woman I’ve ever seen in my life. And, had her mouth not been so ugly, she would have been my favorite. I’m not a prude, but show some damn class people. Kids DO want to watch, and there are plenty of people who don’t watch the feeds or BBAD because it’s just toooooooo much. A cuss word here, or there is one thing, but F in EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE is even hard for me to listen to!

      1. Hi Nana, I have 7 grandkids from 3 to 13 yrs old and two sons in their mid to late thirties. I too have a problem with using the F..word so much. They are adults but kind of shows their limited vocabulary, as well as I’m sure they really don’t have much respect for their parents and grandparents that some often seem to worry about. ” Hey my mom is watching this” And that was in regards to sexual talk. But they can cuss like sailors, lay in a bed playing with each other???? They have all been pigs , no one really cleans much except Vic. Surprised with the girls though. Too busy putting on makeup at 2am then going to bed! Weird. You’ve got to be somewhat vain to go on this show, but to be immature to a fault is just no excuse. I think the best season was last season with Steve winning. He played a great game. Johnny Mac was good too and even tough I like James for being a good guy really Johnny should have won AFP. But Steve pulled out the impossible against Vanessa because she got too paranoid like Paulie did. She was a better player than Paulie. Derick used his cop skills and deserve to win the season. I think Vic has put the most thought in it all once he came back. He knew who targeted him the first time and who would turn on him again. He also has a good attitude about his possible fate and I hope they do send him to jury and beat Paulie once and for all and then take out Paul, and the rest. But Nat and Vicl F2. Vic winning BB18 but the two with heart( except for James) and even with his mouth at times . He’s a guy and unfortunately being around other guys they pop bad. But all the girls,( except for Nat) especially potty mouth Meech I am not at all impressed with. Their families must be so proud. ” Hey watch my kid on BB being a douchebag” except for Paulie’s ever so wonderful father ” Mr Meet and Greet”

  10. Would someone please tell that mouth breather Michelle that the word is “eSpecially,” not “eXpecially.”

    1. dammit! we cant all be perfect specimens like you im sure its extremely painful for you to have to deal with idiots like meech in your life.. well not exactly IN your life but we get it you have to watch them on tv thats so effin crazy man how do you deal with it!! i mean seriously what kind of dumbass cant pronounce words correctly!

  11. They are ALL after James!
    I know I’m in the minority here, but…. You all who bash James and his game play. Go back and look at the feeds shortly after POV comp.
    Paul in safari room telling Vic that everything is going according to plan. Next is James. They will take the three girls to 5 and nat/mich to final4.
    At the EXACT SAME TIME, James is in HOH with Natalie telling her he knows Vic/Pauls plan. To take the three girls then the two. The SAME THING Paul just said.
    Why would James NOT evict Vic? no matter what, his “odds” are better. Vic stays in, James goes up, he has NO competitor who has his back. It’s Vic, Paul, Michelle, and Nicole (or Corey) gunning him for voting their lover out. Only Natalie, and that’s IF she stays loyal. Corey or paulie come back in jury buy back they’re gunning for him as well for just evicting him. So, if Vic is evicted and comes back, it’s same as if he hadn’t been evicted but James still has an extra number on his side for not evicting Corey or Nicole.
    Paulie comes back over Vic, paulie sides with James for keeping Corey and James won’t let him forget it.
    James knows what he’s doing. He’s not telling Natalie everything he’s thinking. He’s smart enough to keep her still on an as needed basis on what he tells her. Just what he’s doing tonight.
    IMO, playing a great game. LOwkey, babysitting Natalie, making it LOOK like he’s not really into things.
    I’m for James. He’s the least annoying person in that house.
    Paul is sketch Paulie junior
    Victor-read some old posts on here….refresh your memory
    Nicole/Corey just disgusting
    Natalie- the most self absorbed woman I’ve seen on BB in a long time! ME ME. ME. ME. ME.
    Michelle- same as Victor- she’s a liar, bombastic, annoying human being.

    1. “Natalie- the most self absorbed woman I’ve seen on BB in a long time! ME ME. ME. ME. ME.”

      I guess that’s why when a girl in the house was crying Nat was usually the one there comforting her.

      1. Uh yea, Nat is putting herself first, just like every BB winner has done. Why are woman always supposed to be a doormat and sacrifice themselves and be “nice” or else be accused of being selfish?

    2. James knows their plans. Of course he does, production told Natalie to work with Corey and Nicole and I’m sure they told James that information so he’ll vote out Vic.

  12. Well I can’t stand the thought of any of them winning besides Paul if Victor goes home. I’d even prefer Michelle over Nat, James, Cory or Nicole. Derick WAS strategic and controlled his game start to finish These people are TRUE floaters, never in control, hiding in corners, sleeping the days away, sucking at comps. At least Derrick was smart, and carefully carried out his plan without even his closest ally realizing he was doing it. I can’t stand most these peoples’ game play. Paul deserves to win if Victor goes home. And James is NOT my favorite player. I’m even done wanting Nat or James to get AFP.

  13. Natalie is killing me here. Victor is without a doubt a huge threat that needs removed. BUT! Assuming they don’t know about the jury buy-back (do they?) and they get Vic out this week, that, as far as they know, leaves Corey, Nicole, James, Nat, Paul, and Meech. If Nicole or Corey win HOH then ya, maybe they won’t put James or Nat up. So let’s say they put up Paul and Meech, with Paul as the target. Great! Unless…Paul wins POV. Do you think Nic/Corey are going to use the other as the replacement? Of course not! So up goes James or Natalie, and now the voters are the other half of Nicory, Paul, and James/Nat, whichever is off the block. All Paul has to do is sway Nicory and you’ve lost your partner.

    If they try to backdoor Paul it’s an even worse setup for James and Nat because if Paul wins he could pull off Michelle to pull her to his side, as they’d both be ‘singles’, and then James and Nat are against each other, again, one goes home. Of course this discounts the buy-back, (hoping for Vic to jump right back in if they send him out!) and is dependent on Paul winning the POV. But the smarter play still seems obvious (at least to me) to split up Nicory.

    1. You’re never going to know how things will play out. Well, unless you’re Derrick. You can be screwed no matter what. So just make the move you want and cross your fingers. 15 people lose in the end.

    1. well excuuuuuse me nat is VENEZUELAN vic is PUERTO RICAN paul is ARMENIAN and james is ASIAN.. the point is still the point and it makes absolutely no sense anyway because simon and dawg removed the racist comment so yeah theres that :)

  14. Why don’t we just get rid of HoH noms. Every week the HoH will get a letter from fans telling them who to put up. That way nobody will have to go online and make personal attacks on people for not reading their minds and doing what they wanted.

  15. James is a nut less pussy, Natalie is dumb as fuck, Meech a wasted America’s package. Nicole will float her way to 500k. Please boo the fuck out of these 3 idiots. Victor should get America’s favorite.

      1. just vote vic for afp He’s the best and should win bb18, but was voted out by james and “the worst top 5” alliance in bb history.
        Vic’s an all-star just like paul.
        I blame America for this loss. Voting big meech for co-hoh
        Good luck in november morons
        #Feel the Bern

  16. More reason to vote Vic the care package since it obviously is coming into play with whoever reenters, Why Corey is getting the votes is beyond me, i see that poor goat he almost burned with frat bros ev time i look @him! VOTE VIC!

    1. At this point I may vote for Paul for ACP but who knows. I am a novice BB fan so I don’t really see at this point in the game, with so few HG left, how a BB bribe would be a big help to anyone. Hope someone can explain before the 25th!

  17. I saw that someone said if Victor gets evicted and comes back he should win the game and get all the jury votes because he’d be the first person to come back twice. I’m sorry, but that is one of the least logical things I’ve ever heard. It seems to me that because Victor made one move that America desperately wanted to see, people are becoming a little blind. If Victor fights his way back twice, that means he got EVICTED twice in one season. Basically, the people who say Victor should win if he comes back again are really saying that Victor, the guy who’s social & strategic game are so bad that he got kicked twice, should win. How does that make any sense?! Granted, people have been returning to the BB house since season 3 so returning hgs is just apart of the game, so returning once isn’t enough to deny him the win, but I would draw the line at twice.

    1. Seems !oke you’re saying if vic wasn’t liked enough to get evicted twice why should he win?
      One idea is that it wasn’t his fault when he was evicted. He could have been evicted when Frank was and never had a chance. It just so happens the times he was evicted CBS decided to have buy backs. Blame CBS for all these stupid twists, don’t blame vic for winning them and a staying in the game so long after being out so early.

      1. I’m not blaming Vic for coming back, the coming back has nothing to do with my argument, but the fact of the matter is getting evicted twice is concrete evidence of his game not being good. I’m not saying he should lose because he was evicted so that’s it, I’m saying him being evicted (in our hypothetical twice) shows how his game is. Also, being evicted is always the evictees fault because we’ve seen good players dodge what seemed like inevitable eviction. Just last season, I believe, Vanessa was backdoored yet still escaped eviction.

        1. If Vic gets evicted a second time it is because he is a beast , and not due to playing bad. Paulie saw him as a threat to his game and James and Nat a threat to their game. It’s a no brainier. If Vic goes and comes back of course he deserves to be up there in the end.sorry but your argument contradicts itself. Who do you thinks deserves the grand prize?

          1. My argument does not contradict itself. Him getting evicted for being a comp beast is the same as him getting evicted for having a bad game. Being perceived as so dangerous that he can’t risk losing a comp because then everyone will jump at the chance to get him out is not a good game. Actually, your argument contradicts itself. I don’t know what better evidence of a bad game there is than being evicted TWICE. And right now, Paul deserves it, but I don’t know who will ultimately deserve the win because it isn’t finale night yet.

    2. I can’t even give him credit for taking out Paulie. Paul got him to do that. If he’d gone with his original plan of putting up two girls, it would be a completely different game now. That was a crucial eviction based on Paul’s strategizing. Vic is a comp beast who has really upped his social game, but he is not a strategizer. Viewers are falling for the charm, but there’s no game play substance behind it.

  18. To be fair getting rid of Vic is the right game move given that they are unaware of a jury buyback. If Victor or Paulie wins that buyback, James’ game is more likely over next week. If Day or Bridgette comes back, Jatalie will gain the most. This week is really the worst time to win HOH considering their position last week, not only that they exposed their cards they are sitting ducks for huge uncertainty next week.

    Worst part is, Nicorey is just plain annoying. I really hope Day comes back and put them on the block, I want to see Nicorey squirm.

  19. Maybe Vic getting voted out will prompt Meech to actually play the game. She is aware that as it is now she is playing for 5th place. As long as she is not nominated next week she will be one of the votes. She could potentially break up the couples if she used her brain. She probably won’t though.

    1. Mods, you are mucking around with the comments in a very unfair manner. Several replies to “Hillary2016” what amounts to racist comments are left for all to see, but Hillary2016’s original comment has disappeared into thin air. Why? Shouldnt you then delete all the replies as well, otherwise they look silly as single posts. Such nonsense.

      1. I can’t speak for everyone else but *I* come here to discuss BB, not politics. I hear enough of that crap everywhere else. I’m sure you can find other groups that are dedicated to political mudslinging and name calling.

      2. My guess is they delete the original comments and the replies automatically get reassigned to be single posts. Then they’d have to search for each reply individually with the only link being content. It’s a lot of work.

  20. I’ve done a lot of reading here over the years but have never commented until today. I find it extremely ironic that people are calling James all manner of names for doing exactly what he should do (evict Vic) if he is trying to win the game. Even worse the same people are saying how terrible he is playing and yet wanting him to make the worst possible move ever by not evicting Vic. I don’t get it, you can’t have it both ways. I mean come on the only two people in the house that can beat James in comps are Vic and Paul and he will be getting rid of one of them. Seems like pretty dang good move to me.

    1. The problem I personally have with Natalie is that Vic not only kept Natalie safe and didn’t even put her up as a pawn a few weeks ago (when she begged like a baby to let her win Hoh but he won) and then again this week Vic kept them safe this time and went after Paulie. Natalie made a final four with Paul, James and Vic (meech was 5th) and would have stuck with that alliance had Paul won a Hoh so why did in a matter of a day she cave on her alliance with them? Whencshe needed them it was good for her and they all agreed they would go after Nicole and Corey next, and said you have my “word”, my “word is everything” “people who know me know that when I give my word i don’t ever break it” etc…….. Now that Paul won Veto, she should fight to keep Vic since she claims she would never sacrifice her “morals or integrity for a game”. Or she should stop saying that type of stuff, or Big Brither should edit her as a lying deal breaking player.

      I believe the reason America gave meech the ACP was to finish the job by getting Nicole and Corey out.

      1. You forgot the part where Vic an Paul planned on taking out James 5th and having it easy in final 4 against Nat and Munchie

      2. ZOMG, They have all went back on what they said at one point. My common sense would tell me that Vic and Paul didnt go after them because they dont view them as threats! Where as Vic and Paul are huge threats and need to be evicted for 500K. Do you get it? ANYTHING you say in BB is taken with a huge grain of salt.
        It could be always worse – James could say its too soon to take them out….

  21. Please Meech, put James up and send him to jury.

    Production’s plan was to keep Nic and Corey. She said it yesterday in the storage room.

    People stop pretending like Nat is making “game moves”. She is doing what she was told. Time for her and James to go.

    1. BB does the same thing every year at about this time. They push forward the Caucasian players and send off any player that could be considered diverse or controversial. At the end of the day CBS wants white Christian people representing their station.

      They cast with diversity in mind but white, boring, middle class, straight people will always win. They may give James a pass because he is a vet and speaks with a Southern accent, but Nat is definitely out along with Vic and Paul.

      Unfortunately kids watch this show and that is what they see of the world of adults. Bravo CBS for providing such uncontroversial family programming.

        1. If you’re not a part of the solution then you’re part of the problem. The fact is this show is biased. I think they think that they are pandering to their viewers. If their viewers say racism and homophobia and prejudice against alternative lifestyles is what they want the station will give you that. It’s not what I want and I’m not afraid to say so.

      1. Andy won big brother and he was a homosexual, so I honestly do think BB tries to pick of mix of all different religions, races, and sexual orientations.

      2. WOW! Played both decks at once? the race card and the homophobe card? LOL Here we go again the bigot calling others bigots. Too fuc*in’ funny. How does you theory explain CBS and their love affair with that nasty skanky Frankie? No he didn’t win but CBS has been out there milking him like a cow (along with his donut licking sister who hates America) Casting has sucked in their choices of players regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. As I have said before the true racists are the ones that make everything about race. What has you butt hurt today anyway You are a Vic fan and everyone is targeting him because he is Puerto Rican? Really? I like Vic and at this point either him or Paul deserve the win but for the people in the game playing the game you need to get rid of the strongest competitor if you want to win. The only game I know of where the strongest go the furthest is Roman gladiators. So you should do a bong hit, eat a cookie and watch Ben-Hur.

        1. They use Frankie because they have investments in Ariana Grande’s career, it is why they planted him in the show and gave him a great edit. They didn’t let him win though. I thought that season was going to change the prejudice that the decision makers of this show obviously have, but every season it’s the same thing.

          I know it didn’t used to be like that. In early seasons you did see diversity in the end, but that hasn’t been the case in a long time.

  22. At this point in the game, if they let Cory and Nicole continue to slip by, then they deserve to win. Everyone talks about getting them out and how much they can’t stand them, but somehow end up taking them further in the game while pissing off jurors….what the heck?!

  23. “Nicole and Corey are testing each other on what information the remember about each other”.
    What’s the tiimestamp Dawg? B/c just b4 that nic was giving cory a final 6 celebratory handy j

  24. I hate that Nicole and Corey feel so smug and safe, to the point that Corey slept through the veto storm info last night, without a worry. Reassured by Natalie and James, they’re back to the same old thing, lying in bed and looking sad and confused…
    The only good thing about Vic being voted out again is that he’ll hopefully beat Paulie out in the jury buy back, to further bruise Paulie’s misogynistic ego.

  25. Does Meech ever stop eating? I ‘literally’ can’t hear half the conversations because of her constant smacking & crunching! Someone please teach her some table manners quick!!

  26. Watching after dark and Michelle is eating a KIWI skin and all… biting into it like an apple. I have never seen anyone eat a kiwi like that… even worse… the sticker was still on it and I doubt she washed it. Just a strange observation for the night.

  27. Big Brother is a big joke. The real game players, competition beasts, social strategic players get voted out by productions heavy hand.

    The floaters and nobodies win a false game.

    This is truly not enjoyable by any means.

  28. Then keep the kids from watching after dark. Its from 3-6am and live so you cant really complain that your grandkids cant watch it lol

    1. Production put him back so that their winners could take out a “competition beast” twice. Duh. Never mind that they told their winners to never actually win anything, making it much easier for Vic to win the competitions.

  29. Yesssss paul! Atta boy! This is what i hoped was gonna happen (so far) either one that goes wins the jury battle back and paul/vic win the next HOH!!! Nat- never cared i was put up. Your friendship sucks, you not my boy! Although it makes sense she put them up, id respect her more without all this flip flopping and saying this game is too hard or you cant handle the heat. What?? You havnt done anything, You just have to sit and look pretty, even got a never have not pass and james to shield you!! STEP UP stop this nonsense. Oh my for real? Corey and nicbore still in the house? What a snooze fest!!! Next?

  30. I don’t see how Nicole and Corey don’t get tired of each other. They are in bed together through the the day and night. They don’t even try to hide their showmance anymore . It’s been over 60 days and they still seem so into each other They are the most annoying couple in bb history. I remember a few weeks ago Corey was talking to Victor and Paul about Nicole following him around like a puppy dog. A minute later he goes to Nicole and snuggles next to her and tries to wake her up. They should self evict already because they are not even trying to win. I want Victor to win the Jury by back and take control of the game once again. I’m rooting for Victory to win this season because he deserves it.

  31. Very impressed with paul.. I know i said on here he was an insecure wanna be cool kid but i also said for him to be himself he might be surprised people actually like the real him! Looks like he’s doing just that and its making for some great tv!! Lol him calling out nic/corey was awesome!! Ppl cant say he doesn’t deserve to win or there just hating cause he’s putting in WORK!!

  32. Michelle is a 6 year old playing the game.

    When James the rat votes out Vic he will tell her 2 hours before eviction and then she will cry and then do what everyone tells her to do again.

    She has zero chance of winning because she is a six year old thinking she is playing house with her sisters.

    Why do I never see Natalie eating and she looks 25 pounds heavier than night one? Michelle shovels food in 24 7 and seems basically same weight as when she entered. Michelle may binge and purge..Or does Natalie secret snack hiding under beds? She isn’t fat but she clearly is bigger than when she entered. Save your “Who cares about her weight. You are what’s wrong in the world and are cyber bullying Nat Nat”

  33. Nicole says do you want to cuddle me or do you want me to cuddle you?…….now I know what “cuddle” means….kinda creepy…lol

    1. Didn’t Corey say he would rather sleep? Is that what I read? HAHAHAHA.
      If that didn’t clue Nicole in, nothing will…….

  34. This game is like your math teacher when they said show your work. We r frustrated even when they do the right thing because they comes to these decisions based of non sense and personal garbage not strategy or any logical game play. Just because u get the right answer doesn’t mean u know what u r doing, Show your work!

  35. I am not getting too upset about these convos that Vic should go because this seems to be the season of the flip flopper. There are a lot of days til Thurs and if these dummies hold true to form they will oscillate bet Vic and Nicorey 500 million times.
    It won’t matter because in the end Nat winning HOH has totally F’d her and James’ game. Vic or Paulie will come back and having successfully pissed off both sides they will have made themselves collateral damage. And if their ace in the hole is Nicorey having their back than my advice would be “don’t hold your breath!”
    They should have picked a side and stuck with it.

  36. Many here say evicting Victor is the most strategic move. Not for Michelle (the person who chooses the replacement nom I believe) who is now going to be a sitting duck. Natalie now believes final four needs to be two traditional couples. Natalie’s best outcome, in that case, would be final two with James who will win the game. So, no, it’s not the best strategic move for any of the women in my opinion. Michelle should put James on the block and campaign to Nicole to vote him out. All three women have a better chance going in to final five with Paul and Victor. They can use their feminine charms on two new men who have had little female attention this season and are not used to it. However, if production is indeed influencing the course of events, it appears end of season will be Corey vs. Nicole in final two, maybe Nicole wins as both were wall flowers nearly all season long.

    1. So to recap you think they should take out James and then Nat and Munchie should give Paul and Vic a hand job in hopes that they take out Nicole and Corey in order to get to final 4? What do they need to do after that to get to final 2 Mr. Wizard? Some of the s*it on here is too funny.

      1. Dan you think your boring posts are better than someone else’s? “Mr. Wizard” really?

        Go away chair boy. Yeah..how does it feel fk face? I saw you in prior post call another poster a “asshat” Who do you think you are chair boy?

  37. I’m looking foreward to the second eviction of Vic. I’m also looking foreward to Vic winning his second “battle back,” then running back into the house, winning HOH and f’ing the whole house up.
    Poor Nat – finally gets HOH and she’s about to be screwed hard from it.
    Can’t wait to see Paulie get to the jury house. I can hear Mama Day’s big mouth running now!
    I’m still betting on Paul vs Vic for final two. Which, surprisingly, I’d be ok with.

    1. That’s what I’d like to see. An entire episode on Palsy entering the jury house and being engulfed by the girls like so many lionesses on a carcass. And I hope it’d be a 2 hour commercial free episode.

  38. Is getting out Vic a good game move? Yes.
    Do I like it? No.
    I don’t because it’s productions move and not Natalie’s. She mentioned at least twice she was told to work with Nicole and Corey. Also the fact two people, who are not really participating in the game, are being protected by production just grates on my nerves. Seeing Nicole without Corey is like spotting an albino snipe. It’s obvious CBS is pushing the showmance angle, with having Jeff and Jordan getting engaged, the bb baby thing, and every effort made to find girls eager to play the BB Match Game.
    I’m losing interest in the show because the show has abandoned the game. I’m not watching the all access show unless I hear great things after it starts but I fear it’ll be heavily directed.
    In the end, do I think CBS will care if I stop watching, no. They have enough casual viewers that will maintain the ratings if I go.

  39. Well Nat & her lap dog James better hope Vic or Paulie doesn’t return during the buy back (which they don’t know about yet) none of these ppl left in the house deserves to win especially Nicorey! It’s gonna be funny if one of them comes back and takes all of them out!!!

  40. People here are wasting time with all the personal attacks and listing reasons why they hate this or that HG. Indeed, the nasty nicknames are annoying & unnecessary.
    To the point, we know that Victor will go to jury for at least a few days, and JBB is his only hope of reentry. They cannot get either Corey, Nicole or James out from the current standpoint.
    1. If Michelle renoms Corey, then Nicole & James will evict Victor; Corey is safe for now.
    2. If Michelle renoms Nicole, then Corey & James will evict Victor; Nicole is safe for now.
    3. If Michelle renoms James, then Corey & Nicole will evict Victor; James is safe for now.
    Since Corey, Nicole & James are all afraid of Victor, he’s guaranteed to have two of them voting against him. Only Paul can be expected to vote against the replacement nom. Natalie can sway James, but there’s no way she’ll convince him to toss someone whose parents are supposedly his friends outside the game and keep the comp champ he most fears. James is disposable to Nicole & Corey, but he’s a soft target compared to Victor.

    1. It is BS to have two people who know each other and each other’s families on together. James and Nicole you both SUCK this year. The number of fans you have has probably decreased.

    2. And Meech should have gone to Vic and Paul and said she will put up Nicole if they protect her. She is in a worst position now if she puts Nicory and should see she may be out the door if she or Paul don’t win HOH.

  41. I do think Victor deserves his place in the house, but he is definitely a HUGE threat for those remaining. It would be smart for them to evict Victor, but for the games sake, I hope they keep him and get rid of Corey for many reasons. If Paulie does return (which is most likely what will happen), then they can all band together and hopefully Victor (or one of the other house guests, except Nicole) will win HOH and they can send Paulie right back out the door. Also, by getting rid of Corey, Paulie has one less alliance member to help keep him in the game. Lastly, Victor will not know that Jatalie were considering taking him out and they will still be good. I’d rather Victor win over Paulie any day.

  42. Wow, well… I don’t want Vic to leave. I wanted him to be final 3 w James and Meech. But let’s be honest, it IS the best decision for James and NatNat to get rid of strong players NOW. If Vic gets evicted and finds his way back to the house, it’s gonna be CRAY, which would make great TV. I guess w the way things are going, since Vic seems to be in his way out, I’ll give my ACP votes to Corey because I don’t want Paul to have any advantage… Unless anybody here has a better plan…. ? I don’t want my votes to go to waste.

  43. Natalie has cost her self the game.With a returning player coming back (most likely Paulie or Vic)they coming for payback. If Vic comes back he will team with Paul go after James and Natalie.If Paulie returns,he will reunite with Nicole and Cory and have the numbers to win the game. And personally I think Corey has a shot to win this game. All because of one bad decision by Natalie.

  44. If Vic gets voted out I really hope Paulie wins the battle back, teams up with Corey & Nicole, and immediately throws Natalie and James on the block.

  45. Did anyone watch BBAD last night.

    It was exactly what we get to look forward to if the final 4 are Nicole & Corey and Natalie & James.

    In bed, snuggling……………………………snooze fest.

    Literally a snooze fest.

  46. When James asked Nicole who she would put up next to Paul if she won HOH next week? He said Michelle? Nicole said No, she’s not my target. Okay, so who is her target? If Victor is evicted this week, that leaves James and Natalie. If Natalie and James are so smart, why they didn’t catch that?

  47. So… Is Frank the ONLY person this season to have the unfortunate opportunity due to production, to not have a chance is either of the buy backs? Something just wrong with that.

    This second buy back is just wrong on principle at this point. This is not even an honest game, and gets worse each year. James is right about the jury buyback being similar to cheating at this late stage.

    Frank didn’t get a chance at the first… nor is he in the jury for the 2nd. All he had was the envelope. Not even a fan of Frank, but he got the poop end of the stick on this from Production.

    1. That is so true!!! I didn’t think of that. That is crazy, unless he told them he didn’t want to go back in the house. I can’t see that either, for the type if player he is. WTH

  48. I believe James & Nat are normally called floaters cause they try to be in the middle all the time. Now I know they are together & normally a floater is by their self but really who’s makes all the decisions, James. Nat can’t make a decision on her own. All this changing her mind is driving me crazy. Vic might be the right decision for her game but Nat is whiny too about it & doesnt really know why she wants him out. I like Vic & wish he could stay. Maybe he can battle back again! That would be great. I’ll be honest I probably won’t keep watching cause production is too involved in calling the shots. Why do they have to get involved?! They should just let them play their own game. Does anyone wonder why James always protects Nicole? I mean think about it. He trys to deflect every time someone talks about putting her up or getting her out. And through everything he still trust Nicole! They have a major pack going on. Even though I don’t think Nicole has his back. Think about it, James might have a crush on Nicole!

  49. JAMES …. I am impressed with how you have managed to navigate the house to be the one with the real control the past few weeks (vote eliminating and being the swing vote). Hard to say how it will all play out but indeed, for you and Nat, Victor needs to go …. end up with 3 evenly matched pairs that way.

  50. “Come back on August 25 to vote for Week 5’s Care Package” -CBS website

    What’s going on? It used to say the 21st, not the 25th. We get to vote after the one juror comes back?

  51. If Nicole & Corey are final 2 then Corey will win. The jury will not give Nicole the votes. I don’t want Nicole to win but Corey doesn’t desire it. He just lays around playing with Nicole (yuck!) doesn’t even care if he stays or goes. Have you noticed how many this season are ok with not getting to the end?! As bad as Paulie got on my nerves at least he wanted to win. I hope they get real fighters next year & that production will stay out of it.

  52. Well if Victor is the one to he evicted, I hope he comes back in and puts up Corey and James. Don’t want Paulie, Z would be worthless, Davonne can’t win shit and Bridget – as much as I really like her – will just go back to Natalie and James who really didn’t care she left before. Natalie and James are hooking up with the people who got her out during DE – which included James. They could have kept Bridget. Paul wanted to, but James flipped. Fingers crossed Victor. Shit will be hilarious.

  53. I hope Paul & Vic can be final 2! I think they both deserve it! I don’t care what you guys say about Vic being voting out he works his butt off. At least he is really fighting to be in there!

    1. That would be a perfect ending to this season. In the beginning I didn’t care for either of them. But they have both turned out to be intelligent guys that have played the game hard. Vic for the most part has played a pretty clean game without an excessive amount of back stabbing. And compared to the rest of these people, he definitely deserves to make it to the end. Here’s hoping he has one more battle back win In him to get back in the game. And makes it to the end with Paul.

  54. I wish Vic and Paul would wake up. Paul has had a pretty unbelieavble awareness when it comes to this game and it’ll be interesting to see if he catches onto James and Nat. Paul and Vic should be pulling a Kevin/Natalie (BB11) LML and making a lie up about Nicole and Corey in a calm cool and collected way like Kevin did. Especially Paul who has nothing to lose being safe with the Veto. He has also watched this game and planting a small seed may carry them farther. Their overconfidence may in fact be their worst enemy.

  55. I’ve been rooting for Vic to win for a couple weeks now I like everyone else thinks if he’s voted out he’s the only one able to beat Paulie (which I was very happy when voted out he played in shadow of d/c)
    Although I’d really want brig to come back and maybe he keen has healed
    But don’t think it’s possible
    James I’ve never care for in either season
    Meech I’d hope was gone long time ago
    Corey and Nic who are they again
    Paul is funny outspoken

  56. Simon or Dawg-I have a question about production. It’s long, I hope you have time. There have been rumors for years about comps being rigged and the dr pushing an agenda. Sometimes it seems far fetched or like people are reaching for excuses when their faves don’t win, other times it’s hard to deny-especially when the hgs talk about dr pushing them and skippy doesn’t push the button quick enough. What I am confused about is this-usually they do things to try and save the faves and after a certain point they back off. The ACP may have been the way of helping the faves but apparently they refuse to believe that Nicole/Corey are not the faves. I would like to watch an organic game without twists to favor the underdog, rigged comps or dr pushes because I still look at it as a game show and I want the game to be fair whether my fave wins or not. However, it is in effect a reality tv show which means it is all about ratings. This is what I see from reading comments, twitter and talking to friends (tv only and feedsters) James-he isn’t universally loved and actually isn’t really liked that much by most people. Most of the fans he has this year seem to be fans of Jatalie, not James. Natalie-seemed to be loved by most people whether tv only or feedsters. Receiving a lot of hate since she won HOH. Michelle-the tv only’s seem to really like her, the feedsters have had a love/hate relationship with her. Victor-it seems like most people like him but realize he is a comp beast therefore logical to take a shot at. Paul-same as Meech. TV onlies love him, feedsters have seen his bad side but he still seems overwhelmingly popular. Corey-never cared, nor does it seem did anyone else watching. He is boring and bland and I really haven’t seen a fan base for him anywhere. The only fans seem to be for Nicorey-not for him as an individual. Nicole-She definitely has some fans but they seem to be in the minority. The non-fans include people who were disappointed to see her as one of the returning players, people who think she has played a horrible game, people who think she is a horrible person and people that hate Nicorey. I mean, from what I have read, next to Paulie, Nicorey are the most hated houseguests this season.
    All those observations lead to my question-If this is a tv show and it is all about ratings why would production be pushing an agenda that would cost them fans? Fans are fickle. When they think their faves lose fair and square they will put themselves through the same frustration next year (like with football). If their fave is saved by a magic coupe-de-tat they will justify it because ‘America voted’ so it was fair. But when you are losing your faves AND you feel the game is rigged because you have people repeatedly saying that the dr is pushing them to go a certain way even though it goes against everything that person claimed to want, AND the fans are in an uproar, I have to wonder if BB even cares about fans or ratings. If Nicole/Corey had been playing a great game they could still be hated but the fans would respect the game play (at least the true fans). They haven’t played a great or even good game. I just can’t understand why production would keep pushing them when it is obvious that they are the least favorite players with the overwhelming majority of fans.

    1. Maybe the 4 million outta that 5 million TV viewers are Corey/Nicole Natalie/James fans and never go on the blogs, twitter, message boards. they might miss the odd episode, they are causal fans whose opinion of the houseguests are influenced by the CBS edit. CBS pushes Showmances every year even when they don’t exist.

      I would love to get data on this from CBS. Also would be nice to know % of feed watchers to TV/casuals.

    2. It’s ultimately about ratings. The vast majority of TV viewers do not watch the feeds nor do they read any updates. They get all their information from the CBS show. I’ve noticed in my family, those who are TV viewers only, like Nicole and James and those who check the feeds don’t.
      There aren’t enough people paying for the feeds to justify CBS altering the show to please the feedsters. This may be different in the Fall all access show as it’s only going to be feedsters watching. I believe that’s why they are rolling it out now to see if they can either convert the casual viewer to feedsters or see if they can have a good show by catering to the current feedsters. I’m guessing the close start of the next season is to catch those feedsters whose month hadn’t expired and see if they can keep them.

    3. This is a game. As the players become fewer, game strategy becomes essential. If I played, my moves would have to be aimed at the players that are the strongest competition.

  57. It stinks that because people can’t make up their minds to target nicory they are getting a free pass to the finals without doing anything. Yes paul and vic are the ones to lose to there for better targets just sucks nicory gets to just lay around all summer like they’re not even there. Gremlins

  58. JAMES & NATALIE … The Jury Buy Back this season could really be a game changer. Should Victor or Paulie win and come back into the house …. I see trouble for you two … although, evicting Victor this week may buy you a little loyalty from Paulie even though you both were instrumental in his fall from power.

  59. I have to say this because it bugs the crap out of me when HGs get trivia wrong. It especially bothers me when they get BB trivia wrong after repeatedly claiming to be a superfan. Michelle has mentioned several times that The Brigade made it to final 5 in season 12. Apparently she counts Britney as a member.
    The Brigade consisted of 4 people-Matt, Hayden, Lane and Enzo. Each of them was supposed to have a person on the side to be close to in order to throw suspicion off their alliance. Britney was Lane’s person but was not a member of the Brigade. She did make it to final 4 and then got cut. The Brigade as a whole did not make final 5. Matt, the brains behind the operation only made it to 7th place.

    1. James keeps telling Nat how Nicole’s family loves him, he’s got Nicole in his pocket, don’t get rid of Nicole, etc. But Nat just doesn’t get it. James and Nicole have a pre-season alliance. Then James says bringing someone back now would be like cheating. No James, a pre-season alliance is cheating. You have lost fans & AFP. You will also lose this game and Nat. Hope whoever comes back annihilates you and Nicole. Cheater.

  60. Final 5 was all good until production interfered and they want Nat/James to work with Ratcole.
    May be setting up Paulie’s return to work with Nicole and Corey – so gross. Nicole and Corey have literally done nothing to warrant 1st or 2nd place.
    Hope Vic wins the buy back, wins HOH and puts up James and Nicole!

  61. Production interference is killing this game for me. I suppose if I were a Nicole or Corey fan, I might like what production is doing this week by directing Natalie and James and Nicorey to work together to get Vic out. However, I am NOT a fan of Nicole or Corey or James – and Natalie is becoming totally unbearable!!

    Whatever happens with the show, I have a prediction for after the show: Corey will say to Nicole, and Natalie will say to James: “Oh, babe, you know I really do like you, but we’ve been together non-stop for a few months and I just need a little time to decompress and adjust to life outside of Big Brother” — and that will be the end of both BB showmances. They are NOT REAL ROMANCES, and Natalie is using James, and Corey is using Nicole. James and Nicole will both be crushed – AND THEY DESERVE IT!! As they say, when something seems too good to be real, it probably isn’t real.

    Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against true showmances. I became a big fan of Jeff and Jordan together, and an even bigger fan of Rachel and Brendan. But these showmances are shallow and strategic, and it just makes watching them like watching a slow train wreck.

  62. Don’t count Vic out yet. Natalie has changed her mind many times before and I think she will go back and forth a few times before Thursday. Will have to wait and see. I just hope Meech puts Corey up because of the care package. It would be better if Nicole stays because she has already gotten one even though it sounds like whichever jury member comes back may be eligible too. Should be an interesting week.

  63. Looks like Victor is still gone, wouldn’t surpise me if Paulie comes back into the game and teams up with Nicole/Corey final 3. This season so full of surprises, Not really…

  64. Everyone needs to remember they don’t know a jury member is coming back. So at this point in the game it makes sense to get rid of Vic. Unfortunately, if he doesn’t win the buy back then I’m really hoping B or Day come back. If paulie does come back then yes, dumb move they’re pretty much screwed. Because paulie would be out for blood mostly with Paul/vic still in the house. I know James was on his radar bit not too far up. If paulie does beat vic (I hope not) then you bet he will be gunning for paul/james. They probably should have said to themselves let’s wait one more week. Just in case there is a buy back. Oh well. I’m waiting for Thursday to see the fireworks.

  65. This is the worst season. Seriously, we save the care package for the ones we want to win and it’s a freaking bribe?!? So dumb. Who would take $5,000 over $500,000? I’m over it. Natalie and James=snakes….Corey and Nicole=boring…meech=floater…Paul and Vic=awesome.

  66. Nicole tells Corey “dude you make the best PB&J.” Yea it takes real skill to slap peanut butter and jelly on some bread!!!

    1. Think about it, you have to get the proper proportion of peanut butter to jelly or else it’s too sweet or too sticky. Plus are you a premixer and mix the PB with the jelly before applying to the bread, peanut butter on both sides and jelly in the middle so the jelly doesn’t soak through the bread (a disaster in lunch rooms across America), or do you put PB on one side and jelly on the other? Then let’s talk about the bread! Crunchy or creamy PB…so many choices and decisions have to be made for the perfect PB&J, no wonder Corey couldn’t study for the veto when he’s weighing those monumental decisions! I’m going to nominate Corey for sainthood…

  67. Well I hope either Vic or Paulie (as much as I can’t stand him) comes back & take all of them out especially JaNat & NiCorey!

  68. Couple of things:
    * people have commented on Paul’s family being involved in slave trafficking and escort services, Paul being gay, the convoluted cross pollination of James/Nicole/Paulie relationships, and Nat’s alleged boyfriend being part of the Production team. Where do you find this stuff and how much time do you have to dig for it? Really curious.
    * glad to see that have a cookie therapy is catching on. Cookies always help

  69. Take Corey Vic Paul run the house, but when Vic come back who running the house? Vic Paul and if Paulie comes back Paul Paulie Corey and Nicole gonna be running house. In both situations they all will be gunning for James and Nat… Damned if they do, damned f they don’t…

  70. AGAIN, why would BB fan’s vote for Corey to win anything??? Least we forget he thought it funny to watch his frat buddies pour lighter fluid over a goat (still hoping he and frat boys get in trouble), and flick matches on it in order to set it on fire!!!! It is sad that Vic pretty much out the door on Thursday, and YUCK Corey is next in line for the care package! WHY!!! He is cruel, boring, and all he does is lay around with whinny Nicole! PLEASE, get them out along with lame James! Praying Vic wins jury buy back, and Vic/Paul/Meech final 3!

  71. So I do want Vic to win it all. After that is Paul Anyone else winning is not really going to be exciting for me. That being said. I completely agree the right move for James is voting Vic out. Not going to hate on James for doing it What frustrates me is production involvement in the direction the game is to go. I get they have to do certain things to make sure viewers are entertained and watch the show. But I don’t like them actually telling players which way to go. I try to believe in a certain integrity of the game. But when I hear them say production told them certain things. It’s not about the player making the right or wrong move. It’s about production determining who wins. That takes so much of the fun out of it for me. Even if the player I’m rooting for gets voted out. I’m disappointed. But

  72. I hate the goat burner a little more every day and you people want to give him a care package? Here you go animal abuser. SMH….

  73. All James and Nat do is play for the camera,a.ka. AFP – “AMERICAAAAAA” – NOTE James to Corey- If they give it (the care package) to you, it’s definitely a sure sign that Paul and Victor are villains. PLEASE START VOTING FOR PAUL, SINCE IT APPEARS VIC IS OUT THE DOOR AND ANIMAL ABUSER COREY IS NEXT IN LINE. Nicole, “See they loveeeee usssssss!” I for one hate this stupid care package twist. A waste and a joke, enabling the hg’s even more to play for AFP as oppossed to just playing the dam game. When does AFP voting begin? Anyone, but James/Nat/Paulie/Nicole/Corey. All my votes are going to either Paul or Vic. Not sure, depends on jury buy back.

  74. Vic is an enigma when it comes to big brother. We all knew Derrick should/would win but we wanted them to get him out b/c we didn’t really like what he was doing.

    We all knew that Vanessa should have won but we wanted her out b/c well it was Vanessa.

    this Happens often we are never 100% thrilled with who the winner is.

    Here is the problem with Victor for me at least.

    I never got why he was a target in the beginning. I think it was all personal and centered around Nicole’s dating comment and pure jealousy on the boys. When he came back he re-invented himself. He really doesn’t beat his chest and say i’m so great.. he leaves that to Paul, he’s not manipulating people he’s just winning competitions and being a nice guy. He’s going out this week, it pisses me off b/c in all these seasons of Big Brother he deserved to win and he was likeable for the most part.

    Personally I hope he does come back in and I hope he takes out James, Nicole and Natalie in that order.

  75. To all those saying Victor getting voted out twice, proves people don’t like him, obviously have not been listening very well. They all say that they love and adore him. And he is the nicest guy in the house. He’s very polite and super clean. But, he is a comp beast and smart. They won’t beat him in the end. Those are their words and that’s why they want him out. It sucks but it’s true. And as far as Natalie goes, I’ve tried to like her BUT, I think she’s very conniving, spiteful and just as petty as the rest of those females. For goodness sake, she’s 27years old(almost 30) and still acts like she’s in high school. I think she’s running a con on James and everyone else in that house. She came in there pretending that she was stupid and people fell for it. This woman is a Charity Event Coordinator. How stupid can she be?! She just played up what they thought of her and it worked for a while. But, I got a feeling her or James will feel the effect, of that big head and mouth she got, while she was HOH.

  76. I’m not too upset about Victor leaving.. he’s a child and very phony… plus, it lets Paul by himself which maked hime less of a target.

    Natalie is naive, that’s the problem, and James is way too pasive… Michelle, Nicole and Corey are a joke, so that leaves us with Paul, i hope he wins… Nat and James are ok, but they need to step up their game…

    If Paulie returns and Nicole and Corey are still there.. Nat will regret this..

  77. First it was Fank controlling the house, he got burned, then Davonne was leading, she got burned, then Paulie, he got butned, then Paul, he dodged the bullet, now Nat, she will probably take the bullet next week… they do not learn? if you try to take out a “big threat”, you’ll get voted off right after.

  78. If production wants to keep dictating scenarios in this game…take a page from Survivor and plant a hidden immunity idol in the house..All the Nat fans need to realize she’s a fruit loop dingus. She’s mad about being called fake as her boobs..yet, she acts fake and im pretty sure everybody knew her boobs were and nobody cares if they were. Paul was a tool most if the season. Meech is unworthy and a floating crybaby. James hasn’t done crap but help Nat. It comes down to Vic or Corey. Nobody can deny Vic is the most worthy. But, for me any man that can stand Nicole annoying voice that long deserve the money
