Big Brother 18 has not been free of houseguest conflict, but so far, nothing truly major has taken place in the house this season. At the end of Tuesday night’s Big Brother episode, host Julie Chen noted that a blow up in the jury house would be aired on Wednesday, indicating something big may have gone down among the jurors.
It appears from footage released by CBS on September 13, the “explosive showdown” that takes place in the plush jury mansion is primarily between evicted Big Brother 18 cast mates Da’Vonne Rogers and Paulie Calafiore.
The explosive jury footage that will be shown tomorrow night includes Da'Vonne getting right in Paulie's face. #BB18— BigBrotherLeak (@BigBrotherLeak) September 14, 2016
In the very short video clip posted on CBS’ Big Brother YouTube channel, Da’Vonne appears to have just gotten up from a sofa where both Bridgette Dunning and Natalie Negrotti are sitting. Da’Vaonne seems very heated and almost sits on top of Bridgette to confront Paulie, who is literally sitting on the edge of his seat on an adjacent sofa, ready to address Da’Vonne.
As Da’Vonne sits down, Bridgette quickly scoots over and sits near Natalie. Da’Vonne then takes a seat and fearlessly gets closer to Paulie, looking him straight in the face, as she says to him, “Ain’t nobody afraid…” While she speaks, Da’Vonne is interrupted by Paulie, who states, “Ain’t nobody got to be…”
Some of what Da’Vonne and Paulie are saying is not altogether clear, but it appears as though Da’Vonne is telling Paulie she has no fear of him, and Paulie seems to be replying that “the guys are afraid…”
There is no telling exactly what caused this particular explosion in the Big Brother 18 jury house, but most of the women in the abode have very little love for Paulie. The only houseguest who has affection for Paulie is Zakiyah Everette, who was in a showmance with him while they were still in the Big Brother house.
Their on-again-off-again relationship, dubbed “Zaulie,” was extremely volatile, however, no matter what happened between them, Zakiyah seemed to consistently overlook any of Paulie’s misgivings and return to his arms.
But after Zakiyah was evicted from the Big Brother 18 game because Paulie failed to save her, even though he had won the Power of Veto (POV) and could have taken her off the chopping block, she seemed to be done with him.
On several Big Brother 18 episodes, Zakiyah was seen denouncing Paulie, which was encouraged by jury member Da’Vonne, who felt from the beginning of the game that Paulie was bad news for her close ally Zakiyah. Nevertheless, on a more recent episode of the show, which featured Michelle “Big Meech” Meyer arriving after being evicted, Da’Vonne regretfully informed the viewing audience that Zakiyah had warmed up to Paulie once again, and Zaulie was now a united front.
So, whatever sparked the lively jury confrontation will surely be revealed Wednesday night, along with a nomination ceremony, a Power of Veto (POV) challenge, and a live eviction, to make for an action-packed episode of Big Brother 18.
It should be noted that Joker’s Updates live feed spoilers have revealed that Paul Abrahamian, who was seen winning Head of Household during the last Big Brother 18 episode, nominated showmance partners Nicole Franzel and Corey Brooks for eviction, with Corey the intended target.
The POV was already played and Paul won the challenge, meaning his nominations will likely remain intact.
Following tonight’s show at 8 p.m. Eastern Time, only two more episodes of Big Brother 18 will air, with one being on Friday at 8 p.m. Eastern Time, and the other being the 90-minute finale that will be broadcast live at 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, September 21.
Only a week later, on September 28 at 10 p.m. Eastern Time, the all-digital Big Brother: Over the Top will begin streaming on CBS All Access. Some seem to have incorrectly labeled BBOTT as being Big Brother 19, however, CBS announced weeks ago that Season 19 will air next summer, with Season 20 picked up for the following summer to air in 2018.
