There are two different experiences, both called “Big Brother”.
One is the television show Big Brother, as the CBS producers present it to broadcast tv audiences, three times per week. But the other is what is actually going on in the Big Brother house; the experience of the house guests, unfiltered — or at least less filtered — by television editors.
Fetchland presents Ruining Big Brother. It’s less “spoiling” Big Brother and more pulling back the curtain, to ruin our collective illusions about reality television. Enjoy! Or better yet, recoil in horror…

The Veto ceremony took place on the morning of July 18th so Corey took himself off the block and Day went up as the Roadkill (Tiffany) replacement nominee. Aftershocks of bitchiness from this event continue to reverberate through the California wilderness like a wildfire as the live feeders watch telling after retelling of the ceremonial events. Reports are that “Tiffany is a betrayer,” in Michelle’s words, for putting up her alleged ally. Meanwhile from Tiffany’s wing of the building we hear that Mama Day, “whipped her braids” at Tiffany and then, “started the shade,” against her. We checked the urban dictionary and them’s fightin’ words.
After this Tiffany (allegedly) snarked at Mama Day that, “Your hair’s not long enough, bitch!” in retort. She then sought advice from Frank who told Tiff basically to quiet down and let others lose their control while maintaining her own – solid advice for any Big Brother player or really any human at all given any situation. Meanwhile Day goes in the storage room alone and mutters that she’s “sick of these nasty ass people,” before getting called into the Diary Room for what’s certain to be some dandy doozy quotes we can’t wait to see on Wednesday’s show.
Meanwhile Frank circled the house like a doggie with his tail trying to get votes to send out Mama Day rather than Tiffany this week. Frank keeps repeating that he thinks he can get the votes to 7-1 with Day going home. Problem for Frank is that most people are telling him they’re only on board to vote out Da’vonne but only if he actually has all those votes set in stone. He doesn’t.
There was a morning canoodling event when Nicole and Corey shared quality time in bed after waking next to each other at around 8:45AM. The alert to feedsters was some blanket rustling and then Nicole pointing out that they are, “in the Big Brother house,” but then the blanket went over their heads anyway and the rustling continued in a specifically sensual fashion. Nothing major… but activity fo sho. We’ve included a shot here of Corey’s hand on Nicole’s shoulder (for evidentiary purposes) but because it’s the “night vision” BB camera, we feel kinda dirty about it, guys.
Michelle and James had a pseudo-fight because she thinks Tiffany should be shunned and ignored while James prefers a gentler approach. So, then Michelle gets mad and says James is calling her mean and she’s sick of him making her feel like she’s mean. “This is a mean game!” she pronounces. OK, maybe it is… but James is playing it so much smarter than you in this instance. The conversation ended with James apologizing profusely to Michelle (we still don’t really know what for) and all we can say on the topic is that whomever the lady is that ends up married to James is a VERY lucky woman.
In our Quote of the Week category for July 18th, Paulie takes the cake. He’s in the hammock with Mama Day and talks about how Tiffany gave him information against her, “Thanks for that information about Da’vonne. I’ll use it next week after you’re out of the house,” he tells Day was what he thought about Tiffany’s “news”. This is classic HOHitis. Paulie’s so drunk with power he doesn’t realize he’s basically threatening Day to her face and about a week in which he has ZERO chance of being HOH. As outgoing Head of Household, he can’t even compete for the title next week. Nice one, Paulie!
In other news, Bridgette’s birthday was soundly ignored in the house but they had a full blown party, with hats and a cake, for Zakiyah’s stuffed giraffe on July 18th. Yes, the hats were constructed from tin foil, and the cake was tiny but it’s the effort and energy that really matter when it comes to celebrations. This house’s effort and energy shows us that the feelings of a stuffed giraffe hold more value than a grown ass Cabbage Patch kid. Thus, Bridgette is officially the Rodney Dangerfield of Big Brother 18 – she can’t get no respect.
