Frank has made it very clear that he wants Tiffany to be evicted this week on Big Brother 18. But Da’Vonne and pretty much everyone else in the house doesn’t like Frank, so will they give him what they want or fight back? Tuesday night was full of a lot of crazy twists and turns, with the vote flipping several times.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 18 spoilers.

Bridgette won the Power of Veto and did not use it.

There wasn’t much campaigning over the weekend since the PoV wasn’t locked in. But now it is and Tiffany, Bronte and Paul are on the block. Meanwhile, the Fatal 5 seems to have drifted apart in recent days, especially with Nicole and Zakiyah spending more time with their men, Corey and Paulie.

Da’Vonne has done a 180 on Tiffany, desperately wanting to keep her. She’s afraid of the showmances (Nicole/Corey and Paulie/Zakiyah) and has proposed an alliance with Tiffany and James (plus maybe Michelle or Natalie) to prevent the couples from having too much power.

She seems to have done a good job of convincing James and Michelle that Tiffany needs to stay. The problem is that Da’Vonne and the other girls want to take out Bronte while James thinks Paul needs to go, probably because he doesn’t want to take out Natalie’s BFF.

The funniest part of all of this is that, unbeknownst to Da’Vonne, Nicole has also been thinking about saving Tiffany, mentioning the idea of taking out Bronte instead to Corey because Tiffany as a number for them. However, Nicole also trashed Da’Vonne to Corey, even talking about keeping Frank next week and taking out Da’Vonne instead.

On Tuesday evening, Nicole and Da’Vonne finally got together and it was somewhat hilarious. They both seemed surprised that the other wanted to keep Tiffany. Nicole promised to convince Corey to evict Bronte. Sadly, it didn’t last very long.

When Nicole and Da’Vonne finally talked to Zakiyah, she was on board with reuniting the Fatal 5 and voting out Bronte. However, they were concerned about the boys. Corey doesn’t really like Tiffany and Paulie has been adamant about evicting her too.

After Nicole, Da’Vonne and Zakiyah talked about saving Tiffany, Zakiyah went to propose the idea to Paulie. However, he stood firm on the idea of taking out Tiffany because she’s a long-term threat while he assumes Bronte won’t be able to win any competitions and will be easier to evict.

Later, Paulie, Corey, James, Zakiyah, Nicole and Michelle gathered in the backyard to debate the vote. Paulie seemed to be the only one really arguing that they need to evict Tiffany because she’s a long-term threat like her sister. He’s obsessed with the idea that Tiffany is exactly like Vanessa. The others tried reasoning with him, but he was very resistant and they didn’t want to push it too hard.

After that meeting broke up, Da’Vonne was informed of it and decided that they should keep Tiffany anyway, even if Paulie and Zakiyah aren’t on board. The problem is Nicole.

Nicole then went outside to talk to Corey and settled on evicting Tiffany because she doesn’t trust Da’Vonne. In fact, Nicole wants to tell Frank about Da’Vonne trying to flip the vote in order to target her next week. Nicole said she’d rather do Frank’s dirty work than Da’Vonne’s. Most of Nicole’s rationale seems to be that she doesn’t want to make Frank mad because she’s afraid of becoming a target.

There are sure to be more fireworks, but at the end of the day, Tiffany is now doomed. The house did briefly flip in her favor for a couple of hours, but Paulie’s complete resistance and Nicole’s mistrust of Da’Vonne have sealed her fate. The most shocking part is how much Nicole has now flipped against Da’Vonne and is now on Frank’s side.

It looks like Da’Vonne’s fears have come true. The Fatal 5 is dead because Nicole and Zakiyah sided with their men and seem OK letting Paulie and Frank dictate what happens in the house. Not only is this bad for Tiffany, but it doesn’t bode well for Da’Vonne or Michelle either.

If you don’t have a partner, you’re screwed. Nicole has Corey, Zakiyah has Paulie, Bridgette has Frank, Bronte has Paul and Natalie has James. But Tiffany, Da’Vonne and Michelle are the old maids.
