Big Brother 18 live feeds have been, to say the least, less than exciting since only five people are left in the game and lines have been drawn in the sand regarding alliances and loyalties. This, however, did not stop James Huling from having a very enlightening conversation with Paul Abrahamian and Victor Arroyo about his recently evicted showmance partner, Natalie Negrotti, and some of her actions in the house prior to her being ousted.
Currently, James is aligned with week 12 Head of Household (HOH) Corey Brooks and his showmance partner Nicole Franzel. Corey nominated Paul and Victor to sit on the chopping block, and, as fate would have it, Nicole won the Power of Veto (POV) and will certainly not use the power to save either nominee due to her allegiance to Corey.
Live feed chatter indicates that Victor is the true target this week, so he may be heading out the Big Brother 18 front door eviction night to head to the elusive mansion where the rest of the jury members now reside.
Joker’s Updates reports that in the wee hours of Sunday morning, at around 2:26 a.m. Big Brother 18 house time, Paul and Victor had a long talk with James about Natalie. Initially, they discussed the megaphone incident, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, in which a fan shouted over the backyard wall that James and Nicole had some sort of pregame deal.
Paul noted that he was stunned by the “savagery” Natalie threw at James after hearing the fan’s message. According to Joker’s Updates, James agreed, saying Natalie was “throwing bullets at him.”
Regarding their showmance, nicknamed “Jatalie” by fans, James said Natalie would never talk to him about her personal life or feelings and was solely focused on the Big Brother 18 game. He lamented that after sticking with her for about 60 days in the house she should have at least revealed to him how she felt, even if she only wanted to be friends with him, Joker’s Updates reports.
Paul revealed that following last week’s nominations, when James and Natalie were both on the block, Natalie made her way up to the HOH room where Victor, the week 11 HOH, and Paul sat. She informed them she made a mistake during her HOH by nominating the two men for eviction because she listened to James, who advised her to do so, according to Joker’s Updates.
James had been given the information prior by Paul and Victor, but still had trouble believing Natalie would throw him under the bus. He asked if Natalie possibly did so inadvertently because she kept denying she had ill intentions to James regarding the aforementioned conversation.
Paul told James that Natalie “straight up” said he was to blame for her nominations and that she regretted listening to “people in this game,” Joker’s Updates reports.
According to #BB18 Feed Updates, at one point Paul told James that Natalie was only concerned about winning viewer votes to become America’s Favorite Player (AFP), so she only “pretended” to be a “perfect, good, nice person.”
Additionally, Paul expressed the opinion that Natalie is “super fake” because she is both “super smart and sneaky,” reports #BB18 feed Updates.
Not only did the men talk about Natalie’s gameplay, but they discussed the many male houseguests Natalie seemed to seek attention from after entering the Big Brother 18 abode. Victor told James he had a four-day long “flirtmance” with Natalie, emphasizing they were “nothing,” Joker’s Updates reports.
Paul reminded James that Natalie was first interested in Corey but then moved on to Victor, who quickly shut the relationship down. According to Joker’s Updates, Victor told the men he didn’t think he and Natalie should be in a “flirtmance” and thought he was doing the right thing by walking away from it; however, Natalie didn’t and bad-mouthed him most of the rest of the game.
James said that when Natalie spoke about things he did wrong, he told her she “literally… flirted with every guy in the house and it took her almost to day 70 to stop.” Joker’s Updates reports James further stated he thought it was quite “convenient” that after trying to start showmances with other male cast members and failing, Natalie suddenly wanted to jump into a relationship with him.
#BB18 Feed Updates reports Paul noted he basically “ripped” Natalie apart in his goodbye message to her, but what was aired by CBS regarding his message did not seem too intense and simply referenced her throwing James under the bus, which Natalie then attempted to explain to host Julie Chen.
According to Big Brother Network, because there are just a few more episodes of Big Brother 18 left, the show’s schedule is somewhat different for the duration. Tonight will be the last Sunday evening CBS will air the series this season, and a special episode will be broadcast on Tuesday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. On Wednesday, another episode will air at 8 p.m. Eastern Time and on Friday a special show will be broadcast, which may involve clips, beginning at 8 p.m. Eastern Time. Next weekend the live feeds are expected to go dark, as the next scheduled episode will be the 90-minute finale airing at 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
Big Brother Network also reports that only a week later, on September 28 at 10 p.m. Eastern Time, the all-digital online Big Brother: Over the Top will begin streaming on CBS All Access.
