Juicy Big Brother 18 live feed action is currently sparse because there are so few cast members left in the house. However, on Friday afternoon, Paul Abrahamian and Nicole Franzel talked about and plotted against James Huling and his game whenever they were given the opportunity.
As it stands now in the Big Brother 18 house, Paul has already won the first part of the final Head of Household (HOH) competition, according to Joker’s Updates. James and Nicole will now fight it out in round two and whoever is victorious will challenge Paul in the last HOH challenge. The winner will choose which cast member is evicted and who will face the jury in the final two.
At around 1:53 p.m. Big Brother 18 house time, Paul could be heard on CBS All Access live feeds confessing to Nicole that he’s been throwing James off when it comes to the spelling of former houseguests’ names in case one of the two upcoming rounds of the final HOH competition will involve such a task.
According to TV Grapevine, Paul claimed that James said he was “wired and anxious,” but James actually told Paul he was “jacked” about the game. Paul further told Nicole that James said he does not want to go head-to-head with Nicole in the final two, but would rather battle Paul for the win.
Live feed spoilers reveal that Paul said James does not want to win the second-round HOH competition against Nicole and is counting on Paul to win the third and final HOH round and then pick James as his final two companion. Paul stated James is “banking on me winning.”
Nicole could be heard saying she believes James “secretly wants to win” the next challenge, but Paul disagreed and said, “He’s going to lose.”
Paul further presented a scenario to Nicole that involves the both of them as the final two cast mates grabbing their keys and running onto the stage as he carries her on finale night next Wednesday. It is not clear if production would allow such a feat, but if so, Paul and Nicole would definitely make one of the most dramatic exits from the Big Brother house ever.
Suddenly, after Paul expanded on how shady he believes James is acting, Nicole blurted out, “Once I win I’m telling him I’m not taking him.” Paul looked surprised, yet pleased at this statement, and asked in amazement, “Are you really?”
Live feed spoilers reveal Nicole answered in the affirmative and clarified her intent by saying, “You can pretend that you’re going to take him… I’m out.” Paul said he was not going to pretend, while Nicole reiterated she is not taking James to the final two if she has the chance, indicating, “It is what it is.”
On live feeds, Nicole could also be heard expressing frustration with James and his questioning her, noting, “He’s asking me why I’m going poop. He’s like, ‘You have the nervous poops?’ It’s like, ‘No brah’.” She added, “Gosh, he’s driving me nuts.”
Paul argued to Nicole that James believes he has the votes to win against either one of them in the end, so he’s simply counting on being taken to final two so he can garner a majority of the jury votes, according to TV Grapevine.
Nicole seems to think James believes his gameplay is equivalent to that of Derrick Levasseur, the winner of Big Brother 16, telling Paul that she was part of Derrick’s season and James is no Derrick.
In the meantime, there is only one more episode of Big Brother 18, the 90-minute finale airing Wednesday, September 21, at 9:30 p.m. Eastern Time on CBS.
Only a week later, on Wednesday, September 28, at 10 p.m. Eastern Time, the all-digital online version of the show, Big Brother: Over the Top, will begin streaming on CBS All Access.
