Welcome to a new weekly column featuring the writers of The Big Brother Insider! Join writers; Kaitlyn, Taylor, and Ashley as well as TBBI owner, John every week for their thoughts on BB18!
1) Who do you want to see evicted? Corey or Victor?
John: From a game stance it makes total sense for Victor to leave, however I’d like to see Corey evicted. As much as I adore Natalie/James and tolerate Nicole/Corey, when it comes to showmances I’m generally not a fan of them making it to the end. I applaud these 4 for making it so far, but I’m ready to see them go. They haven’t done anything worth winning, in my opinion, and Victor has, so I’m leaning towards #TeamVictor for staying this week.
Taylor: I would like to see Victor evicted, mainly because I am a James and Natalie fan, and Vic is a huge threat to their game. He is a competition beast, and he would be so hard not to vote for at the end when he brings up the fact that he won his way back into the game.
Ashley: I would honestly like to see Victor go this week. Mainly because Nicole is my favorite in this game and Corey is a number for Nicole. I also think it would be hilarious if Victor came back into the game for a second time! He would be like the cat with 9 lives.
Kaitlin: If I wanted to win this season, I’d want Victor to go. But for personal reasons, I NEED Corey to go. I literally cannot stand him. Since Victor is one of the few players who actually deserves to win, I’d like to see him stay and make it to the end.
2) Which Juror do you want to see return?
John: I’ve said this before on here, I don’t like seeing people return to the game. I feel once you’re evicted you should be evicted. Point. Blank. And the Period...However, this is Big Brother, I have learned to tolerate these “buyback” twists. For purely entertainment purposes and I think she would make the most drama, I’d like to see Da’Vonne return.
Taylor: Paulie, for sure. He’s such a strong competitor, and in the beginning of the season, he was playing an awesome game. Plus, I think that he would add so much drama back to the game.
Ashley: I’m really bummed that we’re seeing another person come back this season! I think 1 is plenty. I honestly don’t care to see anyone come back. Victor is my top choice just for the houseguests reaction. I guess my 2nd choice would be Paulie just because he’d most likely be another number for Nicole. And hopefully he’d put his hair back to normal.
Kaitlin: With a jury member coming back it feels like CBS is trying to drag out this season. I’d like to see Da’Vonne come back because her DR sessions are literally the greatest thing on Earth. But I also would not mind seeing Paulie coming back because that would be major DRAMA!
3) Who would you like to see get the final BB Care Package?
John: This is an odd care package this week, and I’m not really a fan of it. I guess I’d like to see Paul get it?
Taylor: Paul. He’s so entertaining, and I know that he would be able to bribe someone to do something hilarious.
Ashley: The final care package carries so little weight in the game it seems kind of strange. I wish they had maybe done this one towards the beginning and saved the “C.O. HOH” for this week. I don’t see it really benefiting anyone in the game. I guess I hope it goes to whoever is next out the door so at least they get a little severance package.
Kaitlin: This care package is a little strange and I really don’t understand the purpose behind it. But I think Paul should get it, he can earn some cash and supply a couple more laughs.
4) What are your thoughts on this seasons Zinnnnngs? Do you have a ZING for one of the houseguests?
John: This year's zings were great! My favorite was Paul’s!
Taylor: I LOVED this years Zings! I didn’t think any of them were bad. But honestly, I thought the funniest thing was Big Meech’s ”zing” about Paulie being a poor man's Derrick.
Ashley: The zings this year were honestly amazing! “My Girl” Nicole, definitely got the worst one but it was so true! Even Corey’s zing was more of zing on Nicole! Paulie’s was really great as well! Not gonna lie, I loved seeing Paul put his duck floatie around Zingbot. That guy is definitely entertaining!
Kaitlin: These Zings were on point this year! Zingbot does it again! Nicole, Victor, and Paul got the best Zings. But hands down Paul got the best one, I’m still laughing just thinking about it. I’ve got a little zing for Big Meech. Hey Michelle, you call yourself a super fan, but in reality you super suck. ZING. Clearly I’m not as clever as Zingbot, oh well!

Big Brother has always been an emotional rollercoaster. If there's one thing you can count on, from season to season, it is that there will always be an ugly crier.
This list is only meant to be comical, I do not mean to offend anyone.
Some of my favorite ugly crying moments include the following:
Oh Vanessa, could there even be an ugly crying article without mentioning the famous Vanessa? She would get so paranoid, and cry every time she had a conversation with someone. In my opinion, she is one of the greatest Big Brother players of all time, but man, that girl can turn on the waterworks in an instant.
Well, now that we’ve mentioned Vanessa, it’s impossible not to mention her sister, Tiffany. Vanessa and Tiffany have a lot in common, from something as simple as their looks, to their crazy amounts of paranoia. Tiff may have only been on Big Brother for a couple of weeks, but in that short amount of time, she sure showed her emotional side.
Nicole BB16 & BB18:
Sweet, showmance-obsessed Nicole... she can laugh and joke around with the best of them, but that girl can also cry it out. Whether her showmance of the season upsets her, or she just doesn't want to be around these people anymore, sweet Nicole can let those tears flow.
Gina Marie was on one of the most controversial Big Brother seasons of all time. She was loud, and emotional, and a little too obsessed with Nick. In my opinion, her comments and crying were both out of control during her season.
Britney BB12 & BB14:
Britney Haynes was so sarcastic and awesome during her first season, which is why she has so many fans. Her diary room sessions made it impossible not to love her. But Geez Louise, she is quite the crier. Although, I'm not really judging her, because if I found out that I was the final victim of the Brigade... I would cry too.
Rachel BB12 & BB13:
“Floaters you better grab a life vest!” Rachel, Rachel, Rachel, clearly one of the greatest players, but also one of the greatest criers! This girl can be as mean as can be, and super sarcastic, but then can start crying at the drop of a dime. Whatever you do, don't get in the way of Rachel, and her man!
Whoa, Whoa, Whoa, this girl spent every single one of her Diary Room Sessions crying. I honestly feel really bad to even include her on this list, because she is just going to cry about it. Her crying face may actually beat the Kim Kardashian ugly crying face. After every comp, every nomination, Amber just couldn't pull it together.
Crazy Zach, and his speeches. Zach is known for many things, from wearing Victoria's pink hat everyday, to his bromance with Frankie, to calling Nicole a fruit loop dingus after he nominated her... but I remember him most for his crying outburst in the diary room!
The Calafiore brother was playing a perfectly good game in the beginning. Playing all sides, getting people to do his dirty work, his "PP" bromance/friendship seemed to be running the house...then everything fell apart. He got too cocky, made rude comments, and became a crier. Paulie dethroned Big Meech as the biggest baby in the house.
Super fan Michelle has been one of the most emotional players ever. Who cries after not using the veto when they’re not even on the block?! Oh that’s right… Big Meech does.
So those ten people landed a spot on my top 10 ugly crying moments!
Leave me a comment down below of some of your favorite crying moments on Big Brother!
