Big Brother 18 spoilers from late Sunday, August 21, are quite noteworthy. It had appeared that the BB18 house, led by co-HOH Natalie Negrotti, might be planning a “backdoor” strategy for the next eviction vote. A report from fan site Joker’s Updates now throws cold water on those thoughts, as Natalie and James Huling are putting a specific plan into action that would evict one of the current nominees.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Natalie Negrotti won the Week 9 Head of Household competition, but soon had to share the power inside the BB18 house. Michelle Meyer won the Care Package from America this week, naming her the co-HOH and giving her the power to select one of the nominees for eviction. For the Week 9 nominations, Natalie went with Victor Arroyo and Michelle went with Paul Abrahamian.
Another notable moment from the recent Big Brother 18 spoilers is that Paul won the Veto competition. Paul will have safety when he takes himself off the block during the Veto Ceremony on Monday, August 22. This means that Michelle will have to name a replacement nominee, with the choices including James Huling, Nicole Franzel, and Corey Brooks.

James and Natalie are working hard on Michelle to get her to nominate Nicole for eviction. They plan to continue lying to Michelle by telling her that they will vote to evict her choice and support her for the rest of the season. This is not the plan that James and Natalie plan to stick with, though, as they simply want an excuse to get Victor out of the BB18 house as soon as possible.
The plan doesn’t end there, as these latest Big Brother 18 spoilers also reveal what James and Natalie want to do at the next HOH competition. The couple plans to allow Nicole and Corey to take the HOH power, with the hope that the other showmance will target Paul Abrahamian for eviction. James and Natalie are convinced that Nicole and Corey will keep them safe for another week, leading to the nominees being Paul and Michelle Meyer in Week 10.
What none of the houseguests know yet, is that there is going to be a BB18 jury competition after the next eviction. This will allow someone from the jury to return to the BB18 house, possibly upsetting the balance that has now been established. This could be a huge deal for the seven remaining houseguests, as it could mean that Paulie Calafiore gets a shot to play again. What it could also mean is that Victor gets right back in the game after being evicted.
The August 22 Veto Ceremony is going to dictate how many future Big Brother 18 spoilers play out. Michelle Meyer has a lot of power and she may not realize just how much she could shake up the house this week. If Michelle decided to nominate James Huling for eviction and go work with Nicole Franzel and Corey Brooks, they could get James out of the house this week. With only two votes needed for eviction, James could wind up getting evicted in a week where his showmance partner was co-HOH.
The key to survival for James Huling and Natalie Negrotti is to convince Michelle Meyer that they will remain on her side through next week. There is going to be a lot of footage from the CBS live feeds over the next 18-to-24 hours that fans are not going to want to miss. Will Michelle figure out that she is getting used by James and Natalie, or will the next installment of Big Brother 18 spoilers reveal that Michelle is ready to make a big game move before the BB18 house gets down to six people?
