‘Big Brother 18’ Episode Guide (July 17): Paulie’s Nominations Revealed; Roadkill Challenge

“Nomination Ceremony/Roadkill Challenge” (07/17/16) – On Thursday’s live episode, Paulie became Head of Household for the second time this season. Who will Paulie and his close allies in the house decide to put up for eviction? Plus, the entire house competes in the Roadkill challenge, where one Houseguest will put up a fellow Houseguest up for eviction secretly.

This season, the “Big Brother” Houseguests live in a modern steel beach house that’s the largest yet, with the addition of the “Sky Bridge,” which adds 155 square feet of living space. Featuring a floor comprised of 12 clear Plexiglas panels, the bridge is not for the faint of heart, with its clear view to the first floor below.

Also, Houseguests enjoy the towering 22-foot-tall steel Wave Wall made of custom curved steel, wood and Plexiglas in the living room, which required the ceiling to be raised from 12 to 24 feet.

The details on the walls throughout the house show “half-tone” finishing, similar to a comic book illustration, and one of the bedrooms is dedicated to this edgy pop art style. While the downstairs area evokes the sea, upstairs is all about the sky. The Head of Household suite is essentially a skybox with transparent flooring and clouds everywhere, where the HOH will feel like they’re literally floating on cloud nine. The beach theme continues in the bedrooms, with one filled with coral and driftwood and the other capturing the magic of the sea at night with the vibe of an upscale club.

“Big Brother” follows a group of people living together in a house outfitted with 80 HD cameras – four more than last season – and more than 100 microphones recording their every move, 24 hours a day. Each week, the Houseguests will vote someone out of the house. At the end, the last remaining Houseguest will receive the grand prize of $500,000.

The remaining houseguests left in the house are as follows:

– Paul Abrahamian (23), a clothing designer currently residing in Tarzana, Calif.
– Corey Brooks (25), a baseball coach currently residing in Dallas
– Paulie Calafiore (27), a DJ currently residing in Howell, N.J.
– Bridgette Dunning (24), a traveling nurse currently residing in Ventura, Calif.
– Zakiyah Everette (24), a preschool teacher currently residing in Charlotte, N.C.
– Michelle Meyer (23), a nutritionist currently residing in Washington Township, Mich.
– Natalie Negrotti (26), an event coordinator currently residing in Franklin Park, N.J.
– Tiffany Rousso (32), a high school teacher currently residing in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
– Frank Eudy (32), a medical sales representative currently residing in Charlotte, N.C.
– Nicole Franzel (23), an ER nurse currently residing in Ubly, Mich.
– Da’Vonne Rogers (28), a poker dealer currently residing in Lancaster, Calif.
– James Huling (32), a staff recruiter currently residing in Wichita Falls, Texas

“Big Brother” is produced by Emmy Award-winning producer Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan for Fly on the Wall Entertainment, in association with Endemol Shine North America.
