Who’s on top this week in our Big Brother 18 Power Rankings? Surprisingly enough, we don’t think it’s the current Head of Household Bridgette Dunning or veteran Frank Eudy, who has been making all of her HoH decisions for her.
Usually the current Head of Household ranks pretty high in our list for the week because the whole house is working to please them so their heads don’t end up on the block. However, Bridgette’s HoH win may have actually put her in a much worse position than she was before, especially because she’s letting Frank pretty much run her game.
- Tiffany Rousso – Tiffany’s biggest problem is something called a social game! It just does not exist and she sketches the other houseguest out. Everyone feels she’s going to be a paranoid mess and it reminds them of her sister Vanessa Rousso. No one is loyal to her in this game and she’s an easy scapegoat to leave this week. Her close allies were Michelle, Paulie, and Da’vonne Rogers, who have all played a direct role in her undoing this week.
- Bronte D’Acquisto – If the vote should somehow flip, then she will be the evictee this week. Bronte is only loyal to her Spy Girls and refuses to connect with the other side of the house. If she survives this week, she could be on the hot seat next week. However, Bronte has a chance to slide through for a bit longer because the cracks are increasing on the other side of the house.
- Frank Eudy – The number one target going into next week. His own allies are trying to throw the Head of Household Competition just to take him out of the game. Everyone sees how he is manipulating the houseguests purely for his own benefit. He’s also ruffled a lot of negative feathers with his comments towards the women in the house, and it’s come back to haunt him. He’s a dead man walking without HOH or Power of Veto this week.
- Bridgette Dunning – If Frank wins POV, I could see her leaving the game next week to weaken Frank. Some of the houseguests noticed their bond is a lot stronger when he slept up in the HOH, but more importantly, controlled her entire HOH week. Bridgette’s only connections in the house are the Spy Girls and they should be concerned about her relationship with Frank too. She knows he won Roadkill and put her own ally in the line of fire. But Bridgette would rather be Frank’s goat instead of a Spy Girl at the moment.
- Da’vonne Rogers – Day’s game went wrong when she decided to go paranoid under the last HOH. She made everyone so suspicious of Tiffany that she is directly responsible for the Rousso sister landing on the block. The sad thing for Day is, Tiffany was loyal to her and she could not trust her in the game because of Vanessa’s shadow. Now Nicole is coming after her because she can’t trust Da’Vonne after she made it obvious she wasn’t down to work with the showmances. Not to mention, Frank wants her gone and he could easily Roadkill her on the block.
- Paulie Calafiore – Paulie was playing a great game, but he lost some steam this week. His showmance with Zakiyah is more public to the house and that has caused some issues. They were better off hiding off in the storage room, but he has also turned completely against Frank, who would take the chance to nominate him if he won roadkill.
- Zakiyah Everette – Zakiyah could become a target instantly overnight if she doesn’t wake up. Her showmance with Paulie makes them a dangerous pair in the game that others do not like. If they sit together, she could risk going home because a lot of the girls in the house have a crush on Paulie. She’s in danger because she has no idea that Da’vonne has thrown her under the bus.
- Michelle Meyer – She’s in a pretty good place for a superfan right now. I have only heard Frank throw her name out there, but he’s in a lot of trouble next week. I don’t see Michelle having any problems in the game for a long time. The only issue with her game is that she doesn’t socialize much.
- Corey Brooks – Corey is only at risk of going home if Frank is not on the block against him. The problem with Corey is he is not going to have enough votes to survive because he’s in a showmance, lack of allies and he is a perceived threat based on his physical attributes. He was in danger of being nominated this week and Frank doesn’t appear to have his back.
- Natalie Negrotti – She’s still a top five player this season, but Corey and Paulie want to take her out. Her showmance with James is on Corey’s radar and they could be targeted soon because of that. The boys (Corey and Paulie) formed an alliance with James, but they didn’t think of three showmances to the end? Natalie feels very safe at the moment, but once you feel safe, you’re evicted.
- Paul Abrahamian – Paul is turning out to be one of the best players this season. After losing two allies in a row, he has turned his entire game around. He does not seem to be a target next week because he has no solid alliances with anyone. One of his best game moves so far is rebuilding his relationships with Da’vonne and Zakiyah.
- Nicole Franzel – You think she would be a larger target, but she’s not. She is in a showmance, but it seems that she is the least threatening of that pair. Nicole’s problem going forward could be the four pact that the showmances have together. I think for her game, she needs Corey/Paulie/Zakiyah as a shield. Her downfall could be taking out Da’vonne who she doesn’t trust, but is not coming for her.
- James Huling – James is on no one’s radar and has played a rock solid game. He is loyal to a fault and that’s why so many trust him with information. James’ team really benefits him because he can get information from the Spy girls and then he is in with the eight pack on the other side. He’s going to make it very far into this game with a great chance of winning the game.
