‘Big Brother 18’: Paul, Victor, And Da’Vonne To Appear On ‘The Bold And The Beautiful,’ James and Natalie Plan Jatalie Meet And Greet Cruise
It is not uncommon for Big Brother houseguests to pop up on CBS soap operas in one form or another after the popular reality show has ended, and next week, three Big Brother 18 cast members will do just that. In addition, meet and greets are standard fare for beloved Big Brother cast mates, and one BB18 showmance couple has decided to take this type of fan event to the ocean for a cruise.
Big Brother 18 houseguests Paul Abrahamian, Victor Arroyo, and Da’Vonne Rogers will turn up for guest appearances on the CBS soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful on Tuesday, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Apparently the three former Big Brother 18 cast members will play employees of a catering and floral company who are setting up the wedding of two of the soap opera’s characters, Bill and Brooke.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Paul, Victor, and Da’Vonne will share scenes with The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont, who plays Bill, and Darin Brooks, the actor who portrays Wyatt.

Paul has already had a stint on television, of sorts, which took place when he showed up at the Big Brother: Over the Top house to host the most recent Head of Household (HOH) competition.
A popular showmance has also been quite public and vocal about their relationship outside the Big Brother 18 house, which some had predicted would crumble once the show was over. James Huling and Natalie Negrotti appear to be going strong despite a number of their fellow houseguests believing Natalie was simply using James to get further in the game, as previously reported by The Inquisitr.
The couple, nicknamed “Jatalie,” is now planning a meet and greet cruise to take place in spring of next year, according an Eventbrite post. The description for the event, helmed by cruise planner Lorrie Ortega, reads as follows.
“#Jatalie Cruise. Two Cocktail Parties to meet and greet James Huling BB17/18 and Natalie Negrotti BB18.”
The description continues by noting that James and Natalie may bring along three Big Brother friends, but will only be able to do so if there are 50 cabins on the cruise reserved. The blurb notes, “…if we don’t make the 50 then you won’t get them, but at least you get a cruise.”
The Big Brother James & Natalie – Meet & Greet Cruise is slated to take place from Sunday, April 2, 2017, at 4 p.m. Central Time until Sunday, April 9, at 8 a.m. Departure is from the Carnival Cruise Line Port in Galveston, Texas, according to the Eventbrite post.
Recently, Vulture ranked “The 100 Greatest Reality-TV Couples Ever…” and James and Natalie were on that list. According to Vulture, James and Natalie ranked 95, noting Natalie had it rough in the Big Brother 18 house at times “thanks to nasty comments from her male housemates.” The article states that “her man James” supported Natalie throughout a season that was “dominated by couples” and was “especially difficult for the ladies.”
James and Natalie were not the only Big Brother couple on Vulture’s list. Amanda Zuckerman and McCrae Olson of BB15 ranked at 84; Mike “Boogie” Malin and Erika Landin of BB7 came in at 80; Boogie showed up once again in the 79th spot due to his BB2 showmance with Krista Stegall; Zack Randall and Frankie Grande (Ariana Grande’s older sibling) who shared a bromance during BB16 were in 75th place; Corey Brooks and Nicole Franzel of BB18 fame were ranked 63; Daniele Donato and Dominic Briones of BB13, who went on to marry, were in 50th place; Rachel Reilley and Brendon Villegas, also from BB13, who are married and have a baby daughter, were given the number 30 spot; Jeff Schroeder and Jordan Lloyd, who met during BB11, but returned as a couple for BB13, are married and just had their first child, so they were given the highest ranking by Vulture at 17.

Only three of the couples on Vulture’s list solidified their relationships with marriage, so only time will tell if any of the more recent pairings, including James and Natalie, are committed to one another for the long haul.
Big Brother 19 is set to air in the summer of 2017, but in the meantime, Big Brother: Over the Top is streaming 24 hours a day, seven days a week on CBS All Access.
