Big Brother 18 houseguest James Huling surprised the fans when he suggested that he use his Care Package advantage to save Michelle Meyer on Thursday’s eviction show. James told Natalie Negrotti that he was worried that if they kept Zakiyah Everette that Paulie Calafiore will use her to do his dirty work.
Big Brother Network reports that James’ biggest fear is that Paulie will put his in-house girlfriend to target Corey Brooks or Natalie, or he could use Victor Arroyo and Paul Abrahamian to come after him. James seemed scared to make a power move, but as he told Natalie, if they don’t “do something,” they should “self-evict.”
Last night in the Big Brother 18 house (flashback to 4:31 a.m. BBT), James told Natalie that he’s “seriously considering’ flipping the vote and sending Zakiyah out of the Big Brother house. Natalie said that keeping Zakiyah is dangerous because she will do exactly as Paulie instructs her to do. Deep down, James knows he needs to make a move because it’s getting to the point that if he doesn’t, he could lose the Big Brother game.
The plan so far involves James canceling Paulie and Corey’s votes, leaving Paul, Natalie, and his vote for Zakiyah, which would keep Michelle safe at least for the first eviction of the night. It’s a dangerous gamble because voting out Paulie’s closest ally could agitate him. At this point, James believes it is time to go for broke and just vote Zakiyah out.
“It’s a done deal,” James whispered to Natalie.
Online Big Brother reports that Natalie has been working hard for days to get James to see the light about Zakiyah. She wanted Michelle to stay so they could partner up with Bridgette and leave the alliance with Paulie and Corey. James worries that Bridgette would never trust her because of Frank, but he told Natalie he would try to earn her trust over the next few days.
Big Brother 18 spoilers tease that James decides that he will tell Paulie that he’s going to cancel his vote out so that Paulie doesn’t get any blood on his hands. He doesn’t see why Paulie will have a problem with that, and at this point, he thinks that James will do whatever he wants him to do. Natalie muses that this move will blindside Paulie, and they should expect drama after the live show.
Paulie tells Paul their DE plans should be James & Nicole. Few days ago it was Bri & Victor. Now Paulie says Bri & Nic, James renom. #BB18— Big Brother Network (@bigbrothernet) August 8, 2016
Big Brother Network reports that Paulie decided not to use the Power of Veto on Zakiyah at the Veto meeting. Zakiyah and Michelle are on the block, and one of them will leave the Big Brother house on Thursday night.
When the Big Brother live feeds returned after the POV meeting, Zakiyah and Michelle were not upset. The rest of the house was calm and laughing, so we can assume that there were no surprises at the Veto ceremony.
Big Brother 18 teases that James plans to make a move this week, but many viewers are apprehensive about believing that he will follow through. If he doesn’t, it won’t be long until he leaves the Big Brother house.
Big Brother 18 spoilers tease that Victor and Paulie have stated they want to target James soon, so unless he finds a way to separate himself from the alliance and target them, James could leave the Big Brother house in a couple of weeks.
If James carefully selects which votes he wishes to nullify, he can pull this off and blindside both Paulie and Zakiyah. Big Brother 18 fans, do you think James will use his Care Package advantage to vote Zakiyah out of the house?
