Tonight was a live eviction episode of Big Brother 18. Read on for spoilers on who won HoH and where the Houseguests stand for the week.
Tonight was a live eviction episode of Big Brother 18. By a vote of 3 – 0, Natalie was evicted from the Big Brother house. And Corey won the HoH competition. But before I get to my predictions of the upcoming week, let me discuss the events of the previous week that led to Natalie’s eviction.
Natalie: It was a foregone conclusion that Natalie and James would be split up this week after Victor won HoH. The only question was who would be evicted between the two of them. Victor originally wanted James gone, yet Nicole, Corey, and Paul persuaded him that Natalie should be the target. They claimed they wanted her gone because she was doing really well in competitions, but personal reasons are really what sealed Natalie’s fate tonight. Nicole had a strong desire to be the last girl standing and Corey talked negatively about Natalie all summer long. So even though tonight’s edit made it seem like Natalie was evicted due to strategic reasons, it was really a personal decision made by Nicole and Corey.
The Final 4
James is the only person in the house not part of the Final 4, so he is supposed to be the target this week. However, I’m pretty sure this Final 4 alliance is no more. Corey is now the HoH, so he’ll likely try to get Victor or Paul evicted this week instead of James.
Now onto the Power Rankings. Here are where the Houseguests stand in the house this upcoming week with Corey as the Head of Household.
WEEK 12 POWER RANKINGS
4. PAUL – It was imperative for Paul to win this HoH to keep Victor and himself safe. Unfortunately Corey won the HoH, so either Paul or Victor will be the next Houseguest evicted. Since Victor is a bigger threat in competitions, Paul may be spared. However, if Paul is left in the house without Victor, he’ll need to win every competition in the upcoming weeks to make it to the end of the game. If he does make it to Final 2, he’ll have the best chance to win the $500,000. However, the road to get there won’t be easy.
5. VICTOR – Victor needs to win the Power of Veto this week. If he doesn’t, he’ll likely be evicted for the third and final time. He’s the biggest competition threat in the house, so it’s fair why the others would want him out. However, his closest ally Paul will leave instead if he does win the Veto. Just like Paul, Victor will need to win every competition from here on out if he wants to make it to the end of the game. It won’t be easy for Victor, but he does have a chance to make it to the end if he can win all the necessary competitions.
So those are my thoughts on the house dynamics this week. Thanks for reading and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.
