Victor = hero of the day… again

The August 17th TV episode brings Paulie’s game decay and the zings we’ve all been longing to see. It opens with the aftermath of nominations and Paulie telling us he’s headed into full-on beast mode in Diary Room. It’s not just a game to him because he’s a “born and bred competitor. Then there’s the kitchen confrontation between Paulie and Victor when Victor stands strong. “Some plans don’t work out. That one didn’t work out for you,” and Paulie has to suck it up, which just spins his top even harder.


When Paulie asks if she’ll use Veto on him

After that we see the Veto player pick and Paulie asks Michelle if she would take him off the block if she won. She says, “No,” so, he picks Nicole. This means Meech is the only one who won’t participate in the Veto comp because Natalie hosts and everyone else plays. Paul says after the player pick that he’s going to mess with Paulie so he’s stressed out for the Veto comp. Then we see that other early morning kitchen battle when Paul and Meech put Paulie on blast. He’s proven himself to lose his marbles a bit when he’s under strain so it’s a great strategy before the Veto. Even James gets in on it, confronting Paulie about how he flirted with Natalie even though he’s supposed to be James’s “boy”. Paulie claims in the Diary Room that this just fired him up even more to win the Veto. It’s a sympathetic edit for Paulie, making it seem like he’s being (2016 version) “bullied” as they gang up on him right before the Veto comp.


Zingbot zings

Next we see Zingbot and he zings every houseguest, including calling Victor a Dbag and Paulie a less attractive, less charming, and all around lesser person than Cody. Zingbot says Meech is a vomitcrybaby and blasts Nicole the worst, saying she can never win BB with her lame gameplay. He also calls out Paul’s catchphrases and thus Paul places his Pelican floaty on Zing’s waist. James also takes a Zingbot hit but Nat quickly comforts him. Once done with zinging, Zingbot announces he’s running for President and it’s time for the Veto comp. Nobody will go home empty handed, but only one of them can claim the Power of Veto. It’s that classic game of dirty Santa. You can take another houseguest’s prize just like in dirty Santa. First the houseguests have to “earn electoral votes” using catapults. When Paulie loses he has a hard time keeping his emotions still and even more so when Victor wins and trades his Apple Pie penalty for the Veto. He snarks that he “won’t be baking apple pie,” and then maxi-mopes in the Diary Room.

PaulThe August 17th episode wraps up with all the penalties distributed. It’s cute how Paul’s face lights up when they call him in to do his Secret Service Agent for the first time. Then he makes it look super fun. We believe in living like this, he embraces the cards he’s given and has maximum fun as he can doing it. That’s livin’… and it’s also good times for us to watch. Paulie’s pie penalty is another story as he calls waving the flag, brutal, and tears up while doing it. He’s contrite AF and gets pep talks from everyone… at least at first. As the Veto meeting begins, BB sounds a RED ALERT and Paul enthusiastically checks everyone and then sits down, satisfied and saying, “You can never be too safe”. Then in the Veto meeting Victor says it’s really all between the two of them and he can forgive but not forget, the same thing Paulie said to Victor before his eviction. Of course, Victor doesn’t use the Veto.


Paulie stunned into silence… at last

In the end Paulie says he’s hopeful he has the Round Trip ticket. We’ll find out tomorrow night for certain because the way the house is cemented in their decision to evict Paulie isn’t likely going to change in the next twenty four hours. Tune in on Thursday night for the live eviction and to find out once and for all who has that Round Trip ticket. We’ll keep bringing you daily updates on the feeds and TV show here at as well as tweeting from @RuiningBB18.
