Big Brother 18 live feeds finally began broadcasting from inside the vacation-themed house Thursday night so fans of the show can watch the houseguests’ every move and catch all of the drama that typically goes on in the game. In addition, the interview process normally conducted with evicted houseguests after they get the boot appears to have been changed, causing some to question what this could mean regarding the fate of evictees.
Thursday night was actually rather calm overall. However, a few things that have yet to be aired on the CBS series were revealed over live feeds. First, Big Brother’s mystery punishment that Frank’s crew was given for coming in second in Wednesday night’s challenge appears to have been revealed, and is also quite revealing.
Frank, Bridgette, Paulie, and Michelle were seen on live feeds walking about the Big Brother 18 house wearing nude colored garments, giving the illusion they were in a state of undress. Further, on top of the barely-there clothing they had on, each was wearing a pixelated cutout strategically placed as if to cover private areas.
The group appeared to quite uncomfortable; especially the women, who not only had to wear these odd cutouts on the bottom halves of their torsos, but also had one covering their chests. Overall, the entire get-up was intended to give the illusion that Frank and his Category 4 teammates were running around the house without clothing, which Big Brother was kind enough to pixelate. It was unclear how long the team were to endure this punishment or how long they had been wearing these faux nude costumes.
Also on live feeds, a tearful Nicole was seen weeping after Jozea, in front of a number of other houseguests (and viewers), wanted to give a shout out to Nicole’s former boyfriend, whom she met in the Big Brother 16 house, Hayden Voss, Joker’s Updates reports. Nicole did not like the fact Jozea kept referring to Hayden as her “ex-lover.”
In addition, Nicole was seen being comforted by Zakiyah after Jozea declared a house meeting and announcing that Nicole, James, Corey, and Michelle were not invited. Zakiyah told Nicole not to worry and to ignore Jozea and the meeting, as James revealed he might hide in the room while the event was held and then surprise everyone by jumping out and revealing himself at its completion.
Ultimately, James’ efforts were discouraged, as the house meeting never came to fruition. According to Joker’s Updates, Jozea likely called the early morning meeting “for drama purposes” only. Therefore, Jozea may have simply been trying to get under Nicole’s skin, because, as seen on Thursday night’s episode, she is the current Big Brother 18, week 1 Head of Household (HOH), and she nominated Jozea for eviction. Paulie is also nominated for eviction, but he is intended to be a pawn to ensure Jozea heads home – but if Jozea is evicted, will he actually be sent home?
That remains to be seen as some interesting information regarding Glenn, the first houseguest sent packing from Big Brother 18, and media interviews have come to light. According to a Rob Has a Podcast’s (RHAP’s) YouTube recap of Thursday night’s episode, evicted houseguest interview protocol seems to have changed.
Host of the podcast, Rob Cesternino, noted regarding the first evictee from Big Brother 18:
“We will have some exit interview questions from Glenn… not with Glenn… from Glenn because we have email questions only with the people evicted from the Big Brother house… and certainly, we can speculate what the meaning of that is, as well.”
After a question from a RHAP fan pondered whether there was a chance Glenn could reenter the game – and if so, what his chances were to win – Rob replied:
“The real hope for Glenn would’ve been if he would’ve gotten on one of those teams that had immunity for the first two weeks and he could’ve come in and relaxed. But I feel like… if he comes back into the game, say three or four weeks from now, everybody else will have played 25, 26 days… They’re going to be… at mid-season form… it’s basically day one for him, day two for him… he’s going to try to… make something happen. I don’t think he’ll be able to… he needed to get in, get a cushy landing spot and sort of blend into the background and be sort of somebody who everybody just likes having around and somebody who wasn’t too involved in the strategic dynamics of the game, and I don’t think he’s going to be able to do that…”
Of course, all of this is pure speculation, and Big Brother 18 may mark a change in how the evicted houseguests are now interviewed. Hence, only time will tell what the game has in store for the players, but things should get interesting with a new competition looming and the upcoming Power of Veto (POV) competition just around the corner, likely taking place Friday or Saturday.
