Just Like Camping, This is Intense. #BB18

The house guests were locked in the HoH room this morning for what seemed like a very long time while Production set up the Have Not food table.  On Friday I thought the Have Not foods were going to be hot dog, bacon and capers, but that was just what the house guests were guessing.

Each week the Have Not foods have correlated to the theme of the HoH competition, or at least the background decor, so apparently the theme this week is camping.

The foods are marshmallows and trail mix, and the house guests were whooping with joy as soon as they could see the table over the railing.

Nicole:  Bridgette!  Marshmallows!

(So Bridgette can bake with them, of course.)

Corey is excited to see the trail mix, since it will have protein for him with the nuts.  It sounds like some of the packages of trail mix contain chocolate and peanut butter covered marshmallows, so he is thrilled about that.

Corey: I'll be eating this stuff all day!  I'll probably gain weight this week!  Carb city!

Paul reads the instruction card, which says that due to having the lowest scores, this week's Have Nots are Natalie, Paulie, Zakiyah and Corey.

Paul: However, since Natalie won the Never Not Pass, she will not be a Have Not this week.

Paulie didn't say much about it, but he didn't seem upset.  I'm sure being stuck in that Have Not room with Zakiyah is going to be a real chore this week for both of the guys, because the thrill is definitely gone for Paulie in that relationship.

And Zakiyah isn't handling things very stay tuned for that.

Michelle and Natalie pick at and snack on the new treats, with Victor's picture silently watching them, counting all of those carbs.  Everyone agrees that some of those marshmallows are big daddies.

Paulie looks like he's gained weight already in this picture. It's probably the angle.  Yesterday Corey went in the kitchen wearing a T-shirt and Paulie asked him what the hell was going on....Corey doesn't wear shirts in the house.

Corey:  I just felt like a change.

The PoV will be played later today, and the players are as follows:

Paul - HoH
Paulie - nominated for eviction
Bridgette - nominated for eviction
Victor - Paulie's pick
Natalie - random pick?
Corey - random pick?

PoV Host - Nicole

Both Paul and his boss Paulie told Bridgette that if she wins PoV and takes herself off the block, Da'Vonne will go up and out in her place.  And if Paulie wins and gets taken off the block, Da'Vonne will also go up and out.

Paulie: So either way Bridgette, you're not going home.  Day is going home.

(Um...unless Paulie goes home.  I don't see anybody talking about that, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.  Thursday is at least a month away, in BBT.)

Nicole, Bridgette and Corey sat and had a nice chat about the nursing profession.  Nicole wanted to sign up to be a traveling nurse, but when she looked into it they said she needed a year of experience.

Nicole:  And that year would be up in August, so they're going to start contacting me soon about it.

Nicole is ready for a change, and doesn't want to "get trapped in Michigan".  One of her friends works in a hospital where everyone hooks up with each other, just like Grey's Anatomy.

Bridgette - Yeah, it's like that at our hospital......the Christmas party was off the chain!

Nicole:  Even the married people do it!  And then they come back from break with their hair all messed up!  They don't do that in my hospital.

(Nicole is so naive. That's actually part of her charm.)

Later, Paulie came in to do some low talking  They expect the PoV to be the one with prizes and punishments.  Paulie had a lot to say about Zakiyah, and her volatile moods.  She is very angry now with Paulie now and made some comments about how she "went off in the DR" about him.

Paulie says he likes her, but would never put up with this sort of thing at home.  He brought up the situation where Zakiyah wanted to sleep in Victor's bed and Nicole can't believe she would even say that.

Paulie: A girl like that is a recipe for disaster in the outside world.

Paulie also re-affirmed that Da'Vonne is going home this week, at least that is what the plan is.  Nicole was surprised to hear that everyone is on board with voting Day out.

Paulie: I told Bridgette that only three people want her out...Zee, Michelle, and Day.

Nicole was surprised at that.  Paulie also told them that if Victor wins HoH, he's going to put up Natalie and Zee.

(That is not true...Victor plans to nominate Nicole and Natalie.)

I want to point out how smooth Paulie is with these minor lies.  And Nicole falls for it every time.  After Paulie, Paul, and Da'Vonne pulled that horrible scam on Bridgette last week, I watched Nicole sit at the chessboard and whisper to Paulie about how Frank had been campaigning against Bridgette, but that was part of the web of lies that Paulie helped make up!  Paulie didn't even flinch when Nicole was talking about it.  He's good....we may not like it, but he's good.  If he can take this to the end of the game, he will be recognized for his skills, maybe even in the top tier of BB winners.

Later, Corey and Nicole talked about Victor.  Victor is starting to get under Corey's skin...little things are irritating him but he's trying to control it.

Corey also said that at home, he takes Adderall when he goes to work and he is able to fly through his tasks (bartender tasks).

Nicole: Why didn't you bring it here?  It could have helped you focus!

Corey: It might have given me an advantage...I told them I didn't need it.

Bridgette is blending in and making some new connections.  Victor was very interested in what the fans sent Cody last year.  Paulie said Cody set up a P.O. Box for his fan correspondence.

Paulie:  He got letters, and everybody knew that he went to Temple and was a big Giants fan, so he is always getting hats and shirts....

Victor:  Lots of swag.

Paulie:  I haven't really kept track of everything going on with that, though.

Victor:  All of the dildos?

Paulie:  My dad checks the mail for Cody, and checks everything first before giving it to him.

Victor:  Yeah..don't want to freak him out.

(Paulie has already told them that Cody has some strange fans but is apparently leery of discussing it now...I don't blame him for that.)

Paulie said one of Cody's biggest fans was a young girl from North Carolina and she died in a car accident.  Cody is always sending her family stuff's really sad.


Paulie:  Sorry to bring every body down.

(Victor has one of Natalie's unicorn stickers from Claire's on his right cheekbone in the picture below.)

Later, James, Paul and Victor lured Nicole into Paris for a surprise marshmallow fight.

Someone screamed "unleash hell" and then they unleashed a torrent of pillowy treats at her.  Apparently trail mix was involved, too.

Apparently Victor likes pranks that waste food if he's involved with them.  Because he sure was pissed when James put all of that bread in Corey's pillowcase a few weeks ago.

And then the ugly Americans left a big mess in Paris, but at least they cleaned up after themselves.


I watched Frank's interview with Jeff Schroeder and it was a good one.  Frank obviously doesn't know everything yet, because he thinks trusting Da'Vonne was his biggest mistake.

(That was one of Frank's mistakes, but not the biggest one in my opinion.)

He thinks that he was too comfortable when he first came in the house, and immediately felt like he had a leg up on the newbies.  He was always on the run during BB14, so he felt good the first few weeks this season, being part of such a large alliance.

Jeff wondered why Frank mouthed off so much about winning the Road Kill, but Frank said he was trying to build trust with his alliance, and let them know he was protecting them.

Frank dreaded seeing his Time Capsule, where he gave himself advice before the game started.  It wasn't too bad, though.. he just told himself not to "spend it all in one place".

Frank:  I guess I'll spend it all on Tic Tacs now.

Frank said that Bridgette is like the little sister he never had, and he admired her unflinching loyalty towards him.

Frank:  I wish I had saddled up with her earlier, because then maybe I could have talked to her more instead of running my mouth around people I shouldn't have been trusting.

Tiffany called in and Jeff apologized that she didn't get her own one-on-one interview after she was evicted.  I guess the Battle Back schedule messed everything up last week.

Tiffany said that she was recognized like crazy in the days after she was evicted, but has been staying close to home in the last few days.

(Probably glued to the live feeds like we are...)

Tiffany ended up saying that Paulie wanted Frank out the entire time, and you could tell this was new, painful news for Frank.  She wished she had played aggressively her entire time in the house, rather than just the last two weeks.

Jeff liked it when Frank and Tiffany joined forces...he thinks they could have been a powerful duo, and could have been even stronger if they brought Da'Vonne in with them instead of all targeting each other.

Jeff wondered if she regretted her speech and she said no, not really, it was all in good fun.  Frank said he liked being called The Dictator with his little Cabbage Patch Kid.

Frank got home to Charlotte safely.  Looks like Frank is cocooning this weekend with his woman.

And Tiffany went out to celebrate with her friends.
