#BigBrother18 #BB18 picks up right after the nomination ceremony where James got blood on his hands putting Frank and Bridgette on the block. Frank is upset not that he got nommed but that Bridgette was put up with him. Bridgette is angry that James lied to her in the HoH comp.
Frank tells Bridgette not to get down about it but she’s very upset. He holds her while she cries. In the Diary Room, Bridgette cries some more and says it sucks. She’s worried about Frank leaving and her being alone without him in the house. She’s really hoping to win the PoV comp.
In the pantry, Da’Vonne, Nicole, Zakiyah and Paul dance in glee. Frank goes to James and says he knew he was going to put him up. James says that whenever there’s a fight in the house, Frank is at the middle of this. Frank tells James that Da’Vonne is painting him in a bad light.
Veto action unfolds
In the Diary Room, James says he’s not falling for it. James calls everyone for the veto comp player pick. James, Frank and Bridgette will play. Michelle’s name is drawn. Da’Vonne’s name is also drawn and Frank doesn’t like that at all. The final player drawn is Nicole.
Day is happy that Bridgette drew her name. Paul comes in and tells Michelle and Day they’d better win this. Paul doesn’t want to go on the block again and hopes the noms will remain the same. Paul says Frank is a liar and a snake and doesn’t want him to flip the house.
Natalie is hosting the veto comp and calls everyone out to see it played. It’s the #Otev comp! The veto players kneel before Otev at the top of a water slide. They have to find a record named after a comp from a clue that Otev gives them. It’s musical chairs so one less spot each round.
Veto comp begins
The first clue is about the Toe Jam comp. The players slide down the water slides and start looking. Frank went out after losing this same comp in BB14. Da’Vonne and Nicole grab their records and run back up to Otev. Michelle is next up at the top. James is busy trying to throw the comp so is last up.
The track is called The Toezarks. James is eliminated which is what he wanted. He sits down happily. In round two, it’s about the dog challenge. In round two, the answer is Dizzy Dog but Day was up at the top last and that sends her out of the PoV competition. She hopes one of her allies wins it.
Round three is about Safetyville – that was the ride a rocket comp from early on in BB18. Frank and Nicole are in last place and Nicole slips and falls out. The Rocket is the track and Nicole is eliminated from the PoV comp. Round four is about holding up your arm. That’s the last HoH comp.
Michelle wins the PoV comp
Bridgette is first up and Michelle panics but then beats Frank to the top. The track is Watch Your Dubstep. That sends Frank out of the comp and then it’s Michelle vs Bridgette. The Round five hint is the RV getting undressed comp. The track is Take It Off. Michelle wins the golden Power of Veto.
Frank hopes to work his magic and get himself off the block by going to Michelle who is triumphant to be in the power position with the PoV medallion around her neck. Everyone goes inside after the comp and Frank decides it’s never over til the fat lady sings and there still may be hope.
Frank goes to talk to Michelle alone in the safari room. He asks her to use the veto and says the fans love to see the veto used, backdoor moves and house flips. He tells her if she uses it, she will end up in the top five. Michelle says the house wants one of them out.
Frank tries to sway Michelle
Michelle tells him to throw Bridgette under the bus if he wants to save himself but Frank doesn’t like the idea. He says use the veto and backdoor Da’Vonne instead. Michelle says Day isn’t going after her and Frank says he’s not either but Michelle thinks Bridgette is after him.
Michelle is upset since Frank has been hanging with Bridgette. Michelle says in the Diary Room that she came in the house with a crush on him and then he chose Bridgette over her. Michelle wonders if she helps get Bridgette out, she might end up being Frank’s ride or die.
Paul walks by and so do Paulie, Victor, and James. They see Michelle and Frank talking. Day and James go into the pantry and talk about how Frank will sell some deal to Michelle. Paul comes in and says they need to break up the Michelle talk and says he can go in there and call them out.
Paul talks big then backs off
Paul walks in and tries to interrupt but Frank asks him to leave. Paul does a 180 and walks out. Zakiyah comes in, then James and Paul and Day. Frank says flat out, can you please leave so I can talk to the veto winner. Frank says they’re nervous because they know he’s talking to her.
They walk out. Da’Vonne and Paulie watch Paul pacing angrily in the kitchen because he’s furious at Frank. Day is debating whether to calm Paul down or encourage him to call Frank out and lock in the vote against Frank. Paulie goes down and pulls Paul aside.
Corey and Nicole are lying in the bed in dark getting very very cozy when Paulie and Paul come in rating. Paul is going off about Frank talking to Michelle and Paulie tries to calm him down. Paul hasn’t seen the game and doesn’t know that people talk.
Paul calls out Frank
In the kitchen, Paul goes nuts and asks Frank who goes up if he comes down. Frank asks why he’s so worried and says that’s his game. Paul goes off and Frank says that’s the way that the game is played and then says that he has no power to nominate him.
Paul says he’s been observing him and is annoyed. Paul says when you kick me out of a room and I want to know, that’s not okay. Frank says he’s not throwing him on the line. Paul says he has to assume. Frank says you know what you do when you assume.
Paul says don’t tell me that I shouldn’t be concerned. Frank says he wasn’t using his name and says he has no power to put him on the block or pull himself down. Paul says things are said, things are done and things change. Frank says do you expect me to lay over and die. Paul is being so dumb!!
James decides to call a house meeting
Michelle makes it clear she’s pondering using the veto on Frank so James decides to call everyone together to get it out in the open that the veto should not be used. Paul takes the lead and says let’s just put our big boy pants on and talk about it because he’s over it.
Paul says let’s talk about it and Frank says he wants the veto used and Day put up in his spot. Da’Vonne says the veto will not be used. Michelle asks who wants Day to go and no one says anything and Frank says no one will say it with her in the room.
Paulie then speaks up and says this won’t work and one of them is going home. Frank says that means a lot of people haven’t shot straight with him then thanks Paulie and Da’Vonne for at least having a backbone. Paulie says he’s going to go eat and walks out.
Bridgette makes a play
Bridgette and Michelle are alone in the bathroom and Bridgette says things are awkward and she wants to know why Michelle doesn’t like her. Bridgette says she’s felt attacked by her and she’s never given her a chance. Michelle denies it. Bridgette says she’s been nothing but nice to her.
Michelle says she’s nice to her sometimes but Bridgette has another side to her when she’s with Frank. Bridgette says Frank is her friend and makes her happy and she can’t believe she holds it against her. Michelle says it’s just a game move since Bridgette is a threat to her.
Michelle says she was close to Frank and then Bridgette swooped in and got close to him – she admits she’s jealous of Bridgette and says Bridgette is always playing innocent. Wow. Michelle sees Bridgette as a big problem and now thinks she might use the veto on Frank so Bridgette will go.
Michelle ponders her veto options
Michelle goes to stare at the nomination wall and then worries about pulling Frank off the block but making a lot of enemies in the house if she does even though that’s what she wants. She calls everyone for the #VetoMeeting.
Bridgette congratulates her on the veto win and says do what’s best for your game and I respect your choice. Frank says he’s not going to waste his breath but thanks her for her consideration. Michelle says she respects Frank campaigning and she really thought about using it.
Then Michelle says she decides not to use the Power of Veto. Paul smirks as Michelle adjourns the veto meeting. Frank is disappointed but hopes something works out. Bridgette says she won’t campaign against Frank but expects him to go home and leave her there alone.
Da’Vonne is cocky and certain that Frank will go home. Michelle is worried about Bridgette coming after her if she wins HoH and wants Frank to stay and Bridgette to be voted out. Who will be sent home tomorrow night at the LIVE eviction? Come back to CDL for a LIVE recap to see who is sent home.
