‘Big Brother 18’ Spoilers: James Believes Paul Is The Target, Nicole Plans To Split up ‘Jatalie,’ And ‘BB18’ HOH Prepares For A Blindside

The Big Brother 18 house is divided between the two alliances, with Nicole Franzel and Corey Brooks on one side, and Natalie Negrotti, James Huling, and Michelle Meyer on the other. And somewhere in the middle is the flip-floppers, Victor Arroyo and Paul Abrahamian.

Big Brother 18 spoilers revealed that Nicole won the HOH (Head of Household) competition on Friday and nominated Michelle and Paul for eviction. When Nicole named her nominees, she told Paul that he was “just a pawn,” and her “real” target was Michelle.

Big Brother Network reported that Nicole won the POV competition yesterday afternoon. Immediately after she won, she told Corey that she wanted to leave the nominations the same, and urged him to help her make sure Michelle stayed the target for eviction on Thursday evening.

James still believes that Nicole is working with him and Natalie, even though she stated she “doesn’t trust him.” The Big Brother 18 fans didn’t fully understand why Nicole would turn on James so easily.

On Thursday, August 18, just a few hours before the live eviction show, James told Nicole that he planned to vote Corey out of the Big Brother 18 house. Nicole believed James and prepared to say goodbye to her showmance partner. If you think back, at the beginning of Thursday’s show, she looked upset. At the last minute, James changed his mind and sent Victor out of the Big Brother house, but it severely impacted Nicole’s ability to trust James and Natalie. It promoted Nicole to realize that she had to get Michelle out of the game because she makes James and Natalie’s showmance a threesome. With only seven people left in the game, a tight alliance of three people is an unfair advantage. In Nicole’s mind, Michelle must leave the Big Brother house to weaken James’ alliance, which puts her and Corey in a better position in the game.

Online Big Brother reported that Michelle feels that it is her time to go, and expects to be voted out on Thursday. Michelle tells James and Natalie that she knew when Nicole became HOH that it was probably her “time to go to the jury house.” She added that she isn’t angry or upset and is proud of the game she played. Michelle told Natalie that when she leaves, she has to promise to target Victor and Paul, and make sure neither goes to the final two. Natalie swears that she will make it her ultimate goal to get them out of the Big Brother 18 house.

Big Brother 18 spoilers tease that Nicole tells Victor that either he or Corey needs to win HOH next week so they can put Natalie and James on the block.

“We have to deplete their numbers. One of them has to go next week or we are screwed.”

Big Brother 18 spoilers reveal that Victor tells Nicole that he wants “Jatalie” out because they were responsible for his eviction last week. He doesn’t blame Michelle for her “bad game move,” but as far as James and Natalie, he’s coming for them. It looks like unless Natalie or James win the HOH competition, they will be Week 11 nominations. Corey, Paul, and Victor would all target them next week.

In the HOH room, Nicole and Corey talk about how to let James know that Michelle will be leaving on Thursday. Corey says she should keep it simple by stating that “Michelle is coming after her” and she needs to protect her Big Brother game. They agree to let Victor or Paul win the next HOH so they can put up James and Natalie. Nicole worries that James will be angry that they are sending Michelle to the jury house, and could around and target them.

It looks like Corey and Nicole aren’t sure if they want to let James know before the live vote that Michelle will be leaving the Big Brother house or blindside him. Either way, James will know that they have turned against him, and it could be the push he needs to win the HOH competition on Thursday.
