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 40 - Sunday, July 24

Overnight tension

Frank had a talk with Michelle about the veto and the various dynamics at play.. Paul took exception to that and confronted Frank about it - Flashback 7/24 4.51am.. it wasn't really much of a fight but I'm counting it as one anyway, since the tally's so woefully dull.. Frank looked like he was trying to not bust out laughing for most of it

At nearly the same time, Bridgette tried to clear the air with Zakiyah as far as being shunned, and being friends with Tiffany and Frank - Flashback 7/24 5.03am.. they ended with a handshake but Zakiyah later told Michelle she'd wanted to "punch her in the face"

After a very long and very dull afternoon and evening, the backyard finally opened and they scampered and scattered.. Frank tried much of the evening to arrange a house meeting to put forth his case to get Michelle to use her veto and James to put up Da'Vonne, but Day and Zakiyah would have to be excluded from said meeting.. Bridgette made a pitch to Natalie to distract Da'Vonne or Zakiyah somehow when the other one's in Diary, but Natalie told her the veto isn't being used and Frank's a goner.. as of 1am some of them were toddling off to bed so yet another house meeting isn't likely to happen.. also, Da'Vonne knew about the meeting plan - you can't make up this stuff

Update The meeting did happen, kind of.. see Monday's episode

They've still had no clues about their secret room that I'm aware of, although Frank seemed to be doing a bit of hunting at one point.. for those playing at home, the destination signs around the habitat have green words that combine to say SECRET DESTINATION DEPARTING NOW, and their big DEPARTURES sign shows Flight 211 is "now departing" for Paris.. letters in the windows of the model plane spell out CALL PARIS.. many figure this all means they need to dial 211 on their phone to gain access to the secret room, presumably the former Pandora/coaches/2nd HOH room adjoining HOH.. many also think it means the secret room will have a Paris theme, but there's a big Eiffel Tower in the kitchen

Day 39 - Saturday, July 23

Ze plane, ze moon

Feedmasters have been doing a lot of close-ups on the plane and destination signs, but hamsters have yet to be nudged into hunting for clues

They didn't get a Have-not supplement display or Have-not assignments, but they drew players for veto: Da'Vonne (again!), Michelle, Nicole will play along with James, Bridgette, Frank, and Natalie will host.. most of them thought it would be the pass-it-on prizes and punishments comp

They did a whole lot of waiting around all day, and James mooned Paulie, Paul, Victor, Corey talking future fame in the safari lounge.. they were finally told they'd start their comp at 8pm.. the delay could be for any number of reasons: a comp incorporating lights, bad air quality from the Santa Clarita fire, or somebody called in sick.. they finally cut to Jeffish just before 9pm, and After Dark ran last night's Battle Back show, followed by Thursday's eviction show

Feeds were back in two hours which has to be record time for the OTEV comp, especially with costumes and all.. Michelle won, so she'll finally get some Diary time.. she did a happy dance in the pantry with Nicole, Da'Vonne, Zakiyah, who were later joined by Victor and Paul.. meanwhile Frank commiserated with Bridgette, saying he'd campaigned hard for two weeks and gotten nowhere.. snippy comments and worse started popping up here and there, like they do

Corey: My coach was a fuckin idiot.. Coach Daley, fuck you!

Natalie: Pawns are disposable income

Bridgette: They think I'm related to some girl named Jun because she's Asian.. Asia's a big fuckin place, bitches

Ratings - Revive-a-Hamster edition

Ratings are Friday's for now, based on entertainment value

Solid ups for an elaborate setup and generally 'fair' Battle Back competitions are neutralized by obvious and annoyed downs for withholding an endurance from us, especially one that lasted over five hours. Bah humbug.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

I didn't see much of her but apparently she raised some rabble during the endurance comp, and she's quickly overtaking Frank as Public Enemy #1 because of the birthday party fiasco. I hope she doesn't go anywhere this week but if she does, it wouldn't be as big a hit to the feeds as losing Frank.

Won: $2,500

I didn't see much of him either, fortunately.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

It sounds like she did quite well in the endurance comp but ahem, it was withheld from us. She laid low for the most part once feeds came back, except for giving one of her patented side-eyes to Victor when he convincingly pretended to bang his head on the kitchen counter. Twice.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

I'm hoping the BB14 comp beast returns for the veto comp but if not, maybe he can talk James into putting up a bigger target than himself.. ha ha yes of course I'm joking, Frank's the biggest target in several seasons. But I hope he stays - at least he's got a personality, which is more than can be said for many of them.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions

Ups for winning what sounded like a hard-won comp, and for waiting to eat at midnight when Natalie could. He might not be playing the best game but it's not the worst either, and at least he's mostly pleasant most of the time, and occasionally funny.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

She retells the alleged eyebrows comment and birthday party fiasco with such glee and malice, it's just not amusing, plus it's tiring. It'll be interesting to see what else she's got game-wise if/when Bridgette goes.

Won: Immunity 1st 2 evictions

She talks down her smarts and game awareness so much that she might even believe it herself, but anyone who listens to her knows otherwise. Plus she's pleasant and sweet, and strong enough that those qualities aren't letting her get eaten alive in there.

Won: $2,500

How many times did she say she wasn't going to fall into the showmance trap again this season? Yet here we are, and she gets awfully busy with Corey under that cup on the shelf. This from the girl who wouldn't kiss Hayden when they were clearly smitten with each other.. well, I guess she hasn't kissed Corey yet either.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

He went from obnoxious loudmouth to subdued citizen after losing his cronies, then he geared back up to obnoxious loudmouth. Oddly, now that one of his cronies is back, he's back to subdued citizen. But not to worry, if he and Victor don't reconnect, Paul's still got his Mini Me Paulie.

Won: 8 days pixel suit; Outback dinner

I can't really listen to him anymore, and his new 'do doesn't help.

Won: Revival; immunity 1st 2 evictions

Ups for winning three comps that weren't easy to power his way back in, and for not being nominated to boot. (I don't think he had a week's safety but we'll find out.) He was a little too loud on his return but he's got something to be loud about, for now. Hopefully he'll tone it down or they'll remember why they booted him in the first place.

Won: Outback dinner (guest)

Remember her first Jeffish interview where she seemed like the strategic fan of the show we always hope will show up? And then she said sure, she'd be open to a showmance.. and here we are. Apparently she's cooling off on Paulie and/or vice versa, and just when CBS started to acknowledge they were an item.

Won: $2,500

She came in looking and sounding so much like Vanessa it was spooky, but it didn't take long to realize her game was more Audrey-style chaos and sabotage than poker-faced strategy. Paulie's the only one who didn't get that memo but that's Paulie for you. Two weeks in a row she didn't campaign to save herself nearly as much as others campaigned for her, but when she transformed into Free Agent IDGAF Tiffany it was a joy to behold. I'm surprised #They let one of the six stuntcasts go before jury, but it just goes to show the whole thing isn't as rigged as some believe.

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: 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 twice, 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.
