Few players going into the house ever really want to be the one who won Head of Household on Big Brother the first time of the season. This immediately puts a target on your back and forces you to potentially get blood on your hands right from the beginning of the game.

In previous years, this meant that a lot of houseguests would intentionally throw the HoH competition just to stay out of the spotlight. This season, however, things were just a bit different in selecting that first HoH, and some people just didn’t have much of a choice about whether they would go for it or not.

Instead of a free-for-all competition between all of the players to determine the first Head of Household, this season all but four houseguests ended up not even allowed to compete for it. Instead, the new and veteran players were split into four teams. Then the four groups had to go through a series of challenges, and the teammates that finished last were the only ones who could compete for HOH — and to determine which one of them would be the first evicted.

At the end of the first night of the Big Brother 18 premiere, we were left with Team Freakazoids: veteran Nicole Franzel and newbies Tiffany Rousso, Corey Brooks, and Glenn Garcia with their heads on the chopping block. After one last competition against each other, one of the would end up Head of Household, and one of them would be booted out the door.

In the dual eviction/Head of Household Competition, ex-cop turned dog groomer Glenn ended up in last place and became the first person evicted on Big Brother 18. That left his teammates with the task of choosing among themselves to pick the first Head of Household.

Nicole does a masterful job of pretty much convincing Tiffany and Corey they should choose her with total reverse psychology. Like it’s a terrible burden that she will take on but that they better have her back. While secretly, of course, she really wants it badly to make sure she has all the strategy power. Tiffany and Corey go right along with it and make her the new Head of Household.

After talking with the veterans, Da’Vonne in particular, and evaluating her options, she comes up with a plan to nominate Jozea because she’s at the top of his ‘hit list’ and nominate Paulie so that he can hopefully beat Jozea in Power of Veto.
