Another exciting episode of Big Brother 18 aired on Thursday, featuring a double eviction that sent Zakiyah Everette and Bridgette Dunning to the jury house. Following the show, live feeds revealed Paulie Calafiore was confused and shocked by Zakiyah’s exit, as the newest Head of Household (HOH) contemplated a bold move.
According to Joker’s Updates, Paulie was quite vocal following the jam-packed evening, verbally bashing most of the women left in the game, except Nicole, making derogatory comments about each one. At around 12:20 a.m. Big Brother 18 house time, Paulie began to rant about Natalie Negrotti and her breast implants, saying she shouldn’t have gotten “fake” breasts if she didn’t want to be called “fake.”
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Paulie and Natalie engaged in a heated confrontation early Thursday morning, in which Paulie told her she was as fake as her breast implants. Michelle referred to the comment in one of her speeches Thursday night, trying to dig at Paulie when she thought she was being evicted.
Paulie continued his diatribe targeting Natalie, saying she only received a Care Package because of her connection to James. He then began talking about Michelle Meyer, Joker’s Updates reports, saying she was terrible to everyone all summer, but she’s now jumped on the bandwagon with her former enemies.
He was likely referring to Michelle making amends with Bridgette, who she had issues with earlier in the game related to Frank Eudy. As reported prior by the Inquisitr, earlier in the game, Michelle admitted to both Frank and Bridgette she was jealous of their relationship. She said that as a Big Brother superfan, she wanted to be the one to have a close relationship with Frank.
Paulie kept talking and moved on to Bridgette, saying she made herself look bad because she deemed herself a feminist. According to Joker’s Updates, at around 12:35 a.m., Paulie thanked Corey Brooks, who won the abbreviated HOH during the live double eviction, for nominating Bridgette for eviction and getting rid of that “vindictive feminist ER nurse.”
As the night went on, however, Joker’s Updates reports the night took it toll on Paulie, who appeared dazed as the hours passed. At around 3:14 a.m., Paulie was seen leaning up against a wall appearing to be “shell-shocked” and thoroughly “exhausted.” He reportedly refused to go to sleep as it got later, but he could “barely stay awake.”
As Paulie finally began processing what had taken place around him earlier, the week HOH and his allies continued to stroke Paulie’s ego, while planning a major move behind his back.
According to Buddy TV, live feed spoilers reveal the Week 8 HOH is Victor, who agreed with Paulie to nominate Michelle and Natalie for eviction. However, when Paul Abrahamian and Victor Arroyo were alone, Paul may have succeeded in changing Victor’s mind by persuading him to make a big move and focus on Paulie and Corey this week.
In his argument to Victor, Paul stated Paulie is dazed by current events, so now is the perfect time to blindside him. Joker’s Updates reports Paul noted Paulie has said in the past when he’s in a bad state of mind, he doesn’t perform well in competitions. Victor, who won the Battle Back challenge and reclaimed his place in the game after an eviction, thought for a moment and agreed, noting Paulie was the one who backdoored him in the first place.
The plan at present is to put Paulie and Corey on the block, with the true target being Paulie. After speaking with Victor, Paul informed James Huling of the scheme, who then told Natalie and Michelle what was happening.
According to Joker’s Updates, Natalie’s response was, “Oh, thank God!”
After much maneuvering about the Big Brother 18 house on August 11, the plan to target Paulie, masterfully orchestrated by Paul, appears to be in motion. Joker’s Updates reports at around 10:55 p.m., Paul told Victor the work had been done and everyone (James, Natalie, and Michelle) are on board to move against Paulie and Corey.
Victor told Paul, “I’ll get the job done,” and Paul replied, “That’s my boy!”
Nominations will probably take place on Friday, which will indicate whether Victor is going to stick to his word and put Paulie and Corey on the chopping block, or if he will get cold feed about making such a bold Big Brother 18 game move.
