‘Big Brother 18’ cast spotlight: Will Paulie Calafiore impress like brother Cody?

Paulie -When we first heard that Cody Calafiore from “Big Brother 16’s” brother Paulie was going to be appearing on “Big Brother 18” this season, we were at least moderately surprised. While Cody was a solid player with a very good alliance, we don’t look back at it and think that he was an enormous character who brought a whole lot more to the game beyond what we were already seeing.

Yet, here we are, and over the course of the reminder of this article, we’re going to try to gauge completely what his chances are of winning this season.

Facts to know – He’s older than Cody at 27 years old, he’s a DJ (he actually has a lot of different jobs), and like his brother, he’s also in really good shape. He was briefly featured on a segment on the show in the past.

Show history – While we don’t think that Cody was sitting back and watching past seasons of the show with great regularity, we do think that he has received a huge information download from his brother and maybe some other players on his season. We know that he and Derrick remained close, so he probably had a good opportunity to pick his brain, as well.

Past houseguest comparison – This sibling twist would probably be at least a tad more interesting if there were contestants involved here who weren’t just carbon copies of who played the game already. Paulie is a little more creative than Cody, but their look and their demeanor is almost entirely the same. It’s crazy, really, just how similar they truly are.

Clear weakness – Paulie makes it clear that because of a tattoo, there is no way that he is going to be able to keep his lineage under wraps. Therefore, it’s absolutely coming out, and to go along with that, he just has to be prepared for it. It’s all a matter of when, and how much damage it could do to his game.

Early prediction – Sure, Paulie does have a famous sibling, but we still think he will last a few weeks at least because he’s not going to be a bull in a china shop. It will more than likely take some time before his is perceived as a threat.
