Big Brother 18 spoilers about a special episode of the show are being sought by fans. The BB18 house will be featured during another Friday episode (August 19), where viewers will get an additional hour of footage this summer. CBS and host Julie Chen haven’t revealed many specifics about the special episode, leaving social media to debate about what might get shown at 8 p.m. PT/ET on Friday, August 19. It was on the August 11 CBS broadcast when Julie Chen revealed another Friday episode exists, setting the stage for a lot of conjecture on social media.
There haven’t been this many Big Brother 18 rumors since the first BB18 cast list discussions. There has already been one Friday episode during summer 2016, with that one covering the Battle Back competition. The first five evicted houseguests were allowed to compete for a chance to re-enter the game, giving producers and the network enough additional footage for a bonus episode. The TV ratings were quite good, with millions of viewers tuning in to see Victor Arroyo win a second chance this season.

So could the August 19 episode be another competition involving evicted houseguests? It’s possible that a BB18 jury competition could be coming, with the four members of the jury competing for a second chance this summer. As the schedule stands, that would then require another double eviction episode, but those are typically the most-watched episode of any given season. With the added excitement level, this means the network and the fans would enjoy it quite a bit. But the enjoyment level might also depend on which jury member returns to the BB18 house.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the latest Big Brother 18 spoilers indicate that Paulie Calafiore is about to become the fourth member of the BB18 jury. He is on the block next to friend Corey Brooks, leading to him making some specific decisions about how he would campaign to stay in the house this week. It includes threatening to quit the show and not follow through with punishments if he is going to remain the primary target for eviction. Should Paulie change his mind and not quit when he gets sent to the jury, production would have four people for a competition.

By Thursday night (August 18), the BB18 jury should have Da’Vonne Rogers, Zakiyah Everette, Bridgette Dunning, and Paulie Calafiore, as reported by fan site Joker’s Updates. That would be enough people to have the special episode focus on a jury competition. It also predicts that neither Corey or Paulie have the Return Ticket, meaning producers might need to come up with another twist to replace it this summer. It’s not the only theory floating around about what could happen on the August 19 episode.
Ziggy Marley, carnival games, and food. It has to do with the special Friday episode. #BB18

One particular fan site is claiming that a concert taking place in the backyard this week will highlight the Friday episode. The show could be about carnival games, with potential prizes put in play that could affect the rest of the summer 2016 season. That could also lead to many new Big Brother 18 spoilers, especially if something like a Diamond Veto was put in play. It might also be a good way to bring more fun to the season, which is much needed after a week of drama from Paulie Calafiore in the BB18 house.
There is going to be a Ziggy Marley concert on the production grounds, possibly as a prize associated with the most recent Veto competition. It may also simply be something that gets used as filler during an upcoming episode. Would the producers really have an entire episode focused on just a concert? Could that be a reason why there has been so much secrecy about what will take place on the August 19 episode? The CBS live feeds have revealed no clues to fans, other than that the backyard is about to get locked down for a while. Could it be just a clip episode?
If Friday is a jury battle back, that would leave Frank as the only evicted houseguest this season who didn’t have a chance to return. #BB18

More details about the August 19 special episode will likely be revealed soon, but it’s also possible that nothing will become official until Julie Chen reveals it during the next eviction night (August 18) for the BB18 house. If there is a delay on the details getting released, it will give fans another 48 hours to hypothesize about what the next installment of Big Brother 18 spoilers will reveal.
