‘Big Brother 18’ Spoilers: Who Won HOH On August 18, How Will ‘BB18’ Jury Battle Back Competition Work?

Big Brother 18 spoilers come from late on Thursday, August 18. A BB18 jury competition was announced by host Julie Chen during the Thursday night episode, but details on how that will work are secondary to the new Head of Household getting crowned. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Paulie Calafiore was the latest evicted houseguest, getting sent to his one-on-one meeting with Julie Chen through a 5-0 vote.

The CBS live feeds came back on following the East Coast viewing of the episode, but were taken down again at about 8:17 p.m. PT / 11:17 p.m. ET. The feeds coming down was accompanied by CBS stating on Twitter that the houseguests were “filming something awesome” during that time. There are just seven people left competing for the $500,000 cash prize this summer, with just over a month left until the season finale airs on CBS.

In regard to the most notable Big Brother 18 spoilers of the night, Julie Chen stated that there is going to be a competition between the members of the BB18 jury. This competition will take place between the first five members of the jury, giving them each a chance to win re-entry into the BB18 house. That’s a big deal, meaning next Thursday night (August 25), there are likely to be two competitions taking place after the eviction ceremony.

The members of the BB18 jury are currently Da’Vonne Rogers, Zakiyah Everette, Bridgette Dunning, and Paulie Calafiore. They will be joined by a fifth member during the August 25 eviction episode, setting up the potential for another Friday night episode on CBS. While the network hasn’t announced that possibility yet, the first Battle Back competition did draw millions of viewers. With five jury members battling for another chance at the $500,000 prize, fans are very likely to tune in again.

Following the eviction of Paulie Calafiore, fans are waiting for upcoming Big Brother 18 spoilers to indicate how the alliances are shifting on the live feeds. The seven remaining houseguests consist of two showmances (Natalie Negrotti with James Huling and Nicole Franzel with Corey Brooks), one really tight duo (Victor Arroyo with Paul Abrahamian), and Michelle Meyer. It appeared that it could be Nicole and Corey working against the other five people left in the BB18 house, but that could shift based on who won the HOH competition.

A report was posted by fan site Joker’s Updates right before the feeds went down again, with the two showmances discussing what to do moving forward. It now appears that James and Natalie were getting ready to work with Nicole and Corey in the BB18 house. Neither side seemed very supportive of Paul, with the worry being that he had become unpredictable in the game. This could indicate that the showmances are ready to work together, but it could also be due to adrenaline flowing, as an eviction had just taken place and they were preparing for an endurance challenge.

As for who won the HOH competition on August 18, the live feeds were actually down for more than five hours, suggesting that the endurance competition was a good one. This could have provided a lot of excitement for the live feed viewers. When the feeds finally did come back on, it was revealed that Natalie Negrotti is the new BB18 Head of Household. The next 24 hours will hold a lot of Big Brother 18 spoilers, likely including the nominations for eviction that Natalie makes, but also more hints about what the Friday night episode will entail.
