‘Big Brother 18’ episode 19 review: Nomination roulette

Big Brother -We’re not even going to pretend like tonight’s “Big Brother” audience is as engaged as it probably is typically. After all, the show was delayed a whopping forty minutes because of golf, so we have a pretty strong feeling that there are many people out there who are not even checking this out live.

For those who did, here’s what you saw. First, Paul won Head of Household, which you already learned on Thursday night if you’re a live feeder. Also, we saw Paulie and Bridgette eventually land on the block. While Paul originally wanted Bridgette to be his target for the week, there are other people gunning for Da’Vonne and she may still be in trouble.

Also tonight, we bid further adieu to Frank, saw a few somewhat-silly segments, and at least some of the nomination roulette (hence the title) that led to Paulie eventually going on the block. That was fun, but not nearly as much so as watching it on the feeds.

In the end, the real problem with this episode was, at least for the most part, that the season is just lacking big, dynamic stars. Sure, Da’Vonne is fantastic television, but are the other veterans really delivering? Also, Victor (who returned to the house and is playing a decent game) is close to a zero when it comes to entertainment, and several other houseguests have barely been on the show. We liked Zakiyah in the beginning, but she’s turned out to be a disappointment from a TV standpoint. Corey’s always been dull as a rock, Michelle has been mean, and Bridgette’s mostly just interesting because of her position. This just isn’t a great cast, and the less we say about Paul and his catchphrases, the better.

In the end, we just can’t get that excited about this season so far. Hopefully, that’ll change soon. Grade: C+.
