Big Brother 18 live feeds did not disappoint early Saturday morning, as drama and action continued to unfold among houseguests. Viewers were given a front row seat to a confrontation between Zakiyah and Paulie, sparked by Paulie choosing to sleep in a different bedroom with another houseguest. Additionally, Michelle had a distressingly tough night after an incident with a Paul and a piece of fruit.
In the wee hours of the morning on July 30, Zakiyah became infuriated and frustrated yet again with her showmance partner Paulie. The Big Brother 18 showmance, nicknamed “Zaulie,” seems to be falling apart as Zakiyah and Paulie continue to butt heads on a number of issues that cause friction between the two, as previously reported by the Inquisitr.
On Saturday, what sparked Zakiyah’s ire was Paulie choosing to forgo sleeping with Zakiyah and instead heading upstairs to slumber in the Head of Household (HOH) room with Week 6 HOH, Paul.
Sometime around 2 a.m. Big Brother 18 house time, Paulie and Paul were snug in the comfortable HOH bed when Zakiyah opened the door to the room. According to #BB18 Feed Updates, she woke Paulie, who then turned to look at her, which prompted Zakiyah to swiftly run back downstairs.
According to Joker’s Updates, Zakiyah was “distraught at the idea that Paulie [was] sleeping in the HOH (room),” while she was left to sleep downstairs with Michelle.
Paulie rushed down the stairs and motioned to Zakiyah to join him in the Big Brother 18 safari room for a talk. He informed her he doesn’t like little comments she’s made about him when talking to other female cast members. #BB18 Feed Updates reports Paulie noted he is only sitting on the block at risk of eviction because Zakiyah didn’t want to act as a pawn, which greatly upset her.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Paul, at Paulie’s urging, has nominated Bridgette and Paulie to sit on the block. There is a contingent backdoor eviction plan that includes Paulie, considered the pawn, being saved by the Power of Veto (POV) and Paul replacing him with Da’Vonne in order to send her out the door.
The conversation continued between Zakiyah and Paulie, causing her to shed a few tears as Paulie told her they could speak after the competition is over. He added that right now he has to get his “mind right” because he “could be on the hot seat Monday,” Joker’s Updates reports. Paulie added, he doesn’t want to worry about everything he does that might make Zakiyah feel a certain way.
Paulie also told Zakiyah for the past few days in the Big Brother 18 house she’s been acting petty and having “high school reactions” to things, which seemed to infuriate and sadden her at the same time. She informed Paulie she hasn’t acted “high school” and that he made her sad, Joker’s Updates reports.
#BB Feed Updates reports Paulie continued to apologize for anything he’s done to upset Zakiyah or anything he may have taken the wrong way.
Zakiyah then told Paulie, “I just can’t go on (presumably in the Big Brother 18 house), without talking to you.” This prompted a flood of tears and Zakiyah lamenting, “I can’t focus,” according to Joker’s Updates.
Paulie made sure to tell Zakiyah their showmance may be a hindrance for both of them because he never hears her name unless its attached to his, noting, “that’s really not a good thing…,” #BB18 Feed Updates reports.
Although the two pseudo-love birds finally hugged it out and headed to bed, their issues with one another were really not resolved.
Also Saturday around midnight, another kind of drama was taking place as Michelle was brought to tears over an apple she apparently hit Paul with. According to Joker’s Updates, Michelle was simply playing around and hit Paul with the piece of fruit, accidentally leaving a mark on him. She eventually ran off sobbing about the incident.
Michelle was called to the Big Brother 18 Diary Room and following her session, she returned crying incessantly. Paul tried to make her feel better by letting her know he is perfectly fine, but she remained inconsolable. According to Joker’s Updates, at this point live feeds went down, but when they went came back about five minutes later, everything seemed to be fine.
A few hours later, according to #BB18 Feed Updates, Michelle seemed to be quite down on herself, as she began speaking to house cameras saying she felt awful. Michelle added that if she had a “pretty face,” she might be okay, but she felt “fat” and would now resign herself to staying in bed all day.
It is not clear if the apple incident played a part in Michelle’s feelings of distress, but it most likely impacted her ultimate sentiment in the Big Brother 18 house.
