Paulie is laser-focused on not letting Tiffany slip past another week on Big Brother 18. It’s her third week in a row on the block, but she’s sitting next to two first-timers, Natalie and Corey. Are the nominations and target the same after the Power of Veto ceremoy?

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 18 spoilers.

Corey won the Power of Veto.

He saved himself. Tiffany secretly nominated Da’Vonne.

There was apparently some major shade thrown at the ceremony. We didn’t see it on the live feeds, but Da’Vonne allegedly made a comment about how Tiffany’s hair isn’t long enough, then Da’Vonne said that at least she and Natalie look beautiful on the block. Then Da’Vonne whipped one of her braids in Tiffany’s face. Yes, the Fatal 5 has devolved into the kind of petty cattiness that always dooms all-girl alliances.

Over the weekend Tiffany and Frank did a pretty good job of completely burying Da’Vonne, repeatedly throwing her under the bus by revealing everything she’s done. People like Paulie and Nicole know enough of the truth that Tiffany’s stories add up a lot more than Da’Vonne’s, so they basically believe her.

However, that doesn’t matter. While Nicole and Corey are kind of on board with evicting Da’Vonne this week, the others are standing firm. Michelle and Paul in particular really seem to hate Tiffany and want her gone. Meanwhile, James and Natalie are the Have-Nots for the week and have essentially fallen off the face of the Earth, which is a great position to be in.

As for Paulie, he’s still obsessed with the notion of not letting Tiffany escape the executioner yet again. It seems that Tiffany and Frank have succeeded in turning Da’Vonne into a huge target, but not big enough to save Tiffany this week.

Of course none of this may matter. We know that the Battle Back will result in one of the first five evicted HGs returning to the game, so even if Tiffany is evicted, all she needs to do is win one competition against either Bronte, Victor, Jozea or Glenn and she’s right back in the house.
