I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment.. the cheaper, the better
This site is about the Big Brother 18 feeds and contains spoilers! It isn't necessarily thorough: it's what I catch and/or what interests me. It's about watching hamsters: who's doing what and why. Thanks for encouraging my behavior.

Day 33 - Sunday, July 17

Reset the counter

The Corey sleepwalk countdown has been reset to zero, since he popped into the Have-not room for no reason and with no recollection of it later - Flashback 7/17 3.14am.. sleepwalk incidents have never appeared on my Extracurricular Tally (below) until now, so that's something

The injury tally also notched up when Paul was attacked by an awning - Flashback 7/17 11.11am.. that didn't help his infected nose ring any, and he later soaked his schnoz in salt water, releasing a lot of "stuff" I don't need to go into detail about

Zakiyah had a swimming lesson from Nicole, with James, Da'Vonne, Natalie cheering her on.. Tiffany and Frank agreed on a strategy to further their Save Tiffany/Evict Da'Vonne agenda, and Frank immediately took it to Paulie, telling him about Fatal Five girls alliance, the "slut" comment allegations, and that Tiffany would throw the HOH if she stays.. Frank doesn't know Paulie already heard all this yesterday and didn't believe it.. Tiffany "regurgitated" (her word) all the info to Bridgette, and then to Paulie

The afternoon and evening played out as you'd expect.. hamsters gathered in pretty much every possible combination to discuss Tiffany, Frank, Da'Vonne and things they'd heard about each, plus outings of various final two deals and alliances - those outed grew nervous and resentful, but the uninvolved didn't believe the truths anyway.. "Frank called Da'Vonne a slut" featured big in some of these talks, again.. Frank and Da'Vonne each revved up their social games by chatting amiably (with whoever) about this or that, then seamlessly moving into planting seeds against the other.. Tiffany attempted to up her social rounds but fell behind the two masters of that particular game, as did Paul and Michelle, who each continued their back and forth get-arounds.. Paul's back and forth has been noticed and began to be talked about - Michelle's not so much, yet

James got frisky and playfully went after Michelle a few times, and he put Zakiyah's giraffe in a pot and sprinkled it with seasonings.. as of now, Corey is most likely taking himself off the block tomorrow and Tiffany will put up Da'Vonne in his place.. I expect everything will be heating up to the next level for the rest of the week

Day 32 - Saturday, July 16

Hurry up and wait

That's the way of things on Fridays and Saturdays.. the surviving Unicorns, James and Natalie, were last in the HOH comp so they were named Have-nots.. they were given baked beans, baguettes, and basil as their slop supplement

Da'Vonne and Paul were picked to play for veto (again), along with Paulie, Corey, Natalie, Tiffany, and Zakiyah will host.. they were all "sure" (again) it would be the Tumbling Dice comp, and Paulie continued his algorithm masterclasses while Tiffany showed her method to Da'Vonne

Michelle told James not to worry if he overhears Natalie say she's "just using him for strategy" and to "remember she's a pageant girl".. a kitchen leak got worse, and a stuffed animal party was planned

Lies and secrets, popcorn and pizza

Corey won the veto, in a puzzle comp with an ice cream theme, where they had to stick pieces onto a board and hope they stay stuck.. Da'Vonne went off and cried when he won, later saying that was because she knew she'd be going up.. she asked Tiffany what she was going to do for the renom, Tiffany said she didn't know, and when Da'Vonne turned to leave, Tiffany said it was shady to just ask that and leave.. then the chaos came

Free Agent IDGAF Tiffany told Frank she now thinks Da'Vonne's been after her since Day 1, and she told him about Fatal Five and that Da'Vonne had told her she has a Final 2 deal with him.. Frank and Tiffany decided to go guns blazing, starting with the two of them telling Paul that Tiffany won the Roadkill and Frank was annoyed everyone thought he did, and they told Paul about the alliances of eight and five, and about last week's last minute decision to flip the vote, and that everything had been Da'Vonne's doing

Paul took all that to Corey, Michelle, James, and added that the alliances of eight and five were BS, and he continued running back and forth sharing whatever he'd heard from Tiffany with the people he'd heard it about.. Frank took his (faux) resentment about being accused of Roadkill to HOH, and asked Paulie "Who's the biggest issue right now? Tiffany who got lied to, me who got lied to, or the person who made the fuckin lie up" - meaning Da'Vonne.. meanwhile Corey got a round of Tiffany Tells All, and Frank told Corey that he has a Final 2 deal with Nicole

Paulie remained stuck on Vanessa throughout, and filled in Da'Vonne with the stories that had been circulating about her.. she remained calm and laughed about it all, but the day's far from over.. meanwhile Michelle continued to drive wedges between James and Natalie, telling him not to worry if he hears she's just using him for strategy, and "remember she's just a pageant girl".. Paulie and Paul planned a big "fuck you! fuck you! fuck you!" skit/show for the veto meeting but that's so far away, it probably won't happen

There was some tension between Nicole and Corey, but most of that may have just been Nicole's paranoia.. she told Da'Vonne and Zakiyah she'd cried in Diary, and she finally sat down with Corey to work it out.. sounds like one of them made a game-type razz during the comp to the other, and Corey said his feelings had been hurt hearing about Nicole having a Final Two deal with Frank.. Nicole denied that and Corey seemed to accept that, and they settled back into their usual chit-chat about nothing much.. most of them don't believe the truths that Tiffany and Frank told them today

Paulie to James, about Fatal Five reports: There's no truth to that in my head.. their information is bullshit

Paul to Paulie, re veto meeting: Dude, we should still put on that show, the doctors [Diary] really want it

Frank about Da'Vonne: She's gonna implode on herself like a damn dying star, there's gonna be a supernova

Nicole: What five person alliance are they talking about?
Da'Vonne: Apparently THE alliance - there are so damn many.. me and then you four
Nicole: Oh, that one? I thought the other one

Tiffany: Somebody's been fucking me since Day 1 and I think it's Day

Frank about Paulie's 'I was bred for this': I've lived it

Frank: If you think about it, the memory wall, it's kind of heads on pikes

Frank: I didn't ever get a chance to lie in my season 'cause I was on the block every week

Michelle: I ate the cotton candy at the squirrel

Paulie about ants: They're back, these things keep coming back even after they die

Ratings - A Gif is Worth 1,000 Words special edition

Ratings are loosely based on entertainment value

Ms Nikki Grahame is undisputed BB royalty, and her recent turn on Big Brother Canada only added to her status. She speaks for us all.

PS What's up with blocking Paulie's Roadkill rant at Tiffany from the feeds, and omitting it from the show as well? We're watching you, Big Brother.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

She's as cute and perky as My Little Pony, but winning an HOH and veto in the same week everyone decided her teamie Frank was Public Enemy #1 gave her the right to rim-shot.

Won: $2,500

NOMINATED by Roadkill/Tiffany

He usually ruins his own unintentional comedy value by saying something he shouldn't, making us all cringe like Jason Roy.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

She speaks for herself, but her iconic phrase also speaks for her own game this season.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

Walter White couldn't be stopped and neither can Frank.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions

Like Fawlty Towers' Manuel, he's often the comic relief, and even though he often features in events, he easily convinces the others he knows nothing.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

With her random comments and pop-up getaround game, she could be a designated saboteur and we'd never know it.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions


She's cute, she's nice, she isn't taking it too seriously, and she's having a wonderful summer.

Won: $2,500

Wut? applies to Nicole's game as well as her hair. I really should do all Nikki Grahame ratings sometime.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

You know he's the 'more cowbell' guy.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner


I overused the stomping angry-but-ineffectual mouse for BB Canada's Phil Paquette, but he ended up co-winning the season with his brother Nick.

Won: $2,500


Free Agent Doesn't Give a Fuck Tiffany is in the house.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

She's gorgeous, very entertaining when she gets going, and she's not playing the game too hard - yet? And she does a Murphree-esque mirror routine.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions

She went in saying she'd use behavioral sciences to maneuver her way to the win but she spent most of her time with Bridgette and Natalie who were barely playing BB. Her huge confession to them about being the 'secret nerd' and aspiring mathematician was just silly, and she'll always be remembered for not knowing what 9x9 is. She didn't bring much to the table beyond her abnormally high voice and hair bows, and even the hair bows didn't stick around. She seems like a pleasant enough person but like so many others, she should have gone on a dating show instead.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions

He wasn't the best and he wasn't the worst, but his roomies decided he had to get gone. He thought being on BB will get him show biz jobs and social media followers, but so are most of them and that's never been a deal-killer in the house before. He was a solid member of The Revolution (buffoons) along with Jozea and Paul, but Paul was the only one who distanced himself from that handicap in time. I don't have much else on Victor since the feeds were almost always on vets or siblings, but he'll get a shot at revival and maybe he'll make it back.

Won: Nothing

One of the most delusional hamsters ever (and that's saying something), he was convinced he owned the house, he was the messiah of the newbies, the savior, the sanctuary, and the next Mario Lopez. He wore his doggie comp suit for days, but mostly he just wore underpants. His gametalks with Paul and Victor were pure comedy since they had no clue whatsoever how far out of every loop they were, and The Jozea and Paul Talk Show concluded with the two of them roaming the house looking for a camera that worked. Jozea's shtick got old fast for many, but he was feeds gold for trainwreck fans like myself.

Won: $2,500

I didn't like having to combine an intro with an obit, but that's how the dog biscuit crumbles. He seemed like a fun guy with potential for fun feeds, especially his admission that he'd be 'willing to flirt if necessary' but he also might have gotten into heated political discussions, and BB is not the place for that. He didn't technically get Jodi'd since he got to compete, but gone before feeds is never good, and neither is trial by combat. Too bad the token older/regular person/fan got the first boot but young, pretty, hormonal hamsters are all the rage anymore.
