James and Natalie picked a side and eliminated Victor in Big Brother 18 Episode 31. Then all of the jury members returned for a chance to come back in the house.
Paul blew up at everybody yet again hours before the eviction. I don’t think he’s doing himself any favors, but what comes out of this other than that is that Natalie wanted Victor to stay last week, rather than the person they are supposedly in an alliance with.
Everybody is participating in the HOH competition. The difference between this and the previous endurance competitions is the tilting wall and cold water. Zakiyah and Da’Vonne both jump together in under 17 minutes. Corey is next at 25 minutes. Bridgette falls next at 33 minutes. Paulie is next to fall at 48 minutes.
Victor is returning to the house. Again. This is stupid and ridiculous. Why even bother voting people out if they can just keep coming back again and again? Clearly he wasn’t good enough at the game to last the first time or the second time.
Natalie shouts that there is a god. The guy who went out on her HOH is back. She has a unique perspective on good news.
Two minutes later, Victor falls. Paul falls after 1 hour and 35 minutes. Nicole makes a deal with James, promising safety for himself and Natalie. Nicole wins HOH at 2 hours and 4 minutes.
Michelle is not at all happy. Natalie doesn’t really trust Nicole. Paul is somewhat happy.
Nicole’s immediate target is Michelle, which is exactly what Michelle says she would do if she were in her shoes. Such a lackluster target that just kicks the ball down the road until next week.
In addition to their existing final four deal with James and Natalie, Corey and Nicole now receive another offer from Victor and Paul. If she can get rid of Michelle, she can keep both sides going after each other and have both deals still open. Perhaps not such a bad idea. Paul agrees to be the pawn.
Corey wins the final care package, which is $5,000 that he can use to bribe someone to do something he wants.
