Nicole Franzel is the winner of “Big Brother” Season 18. CBS

“Big Brother” Season 18 could see Nicole and Corey flipping their vote to make James and Natalie stay in the house this week.

According to Big Brother Network, Nicole told Corey that her ideal final three includes James after the Power of Veto (POV) competition. Corey was also happy with the idea, especially after Nicole said that James will most likely take Corey to the final two over her. “James would take you over me. That’s fine. You’re my two favorite boys anyways," she said.

Meanwhile, if Nicole won’t change her mind, it’s possible that Natalie could be the one sent home on Thursday night. In the upcoming episodes, Nicole and Corey could plot something with James, and the latter will definitely work with the last remaining showmance this season because he’s going to be by himself. On the other hand, Nicole’s plan may backfire if Victor or Paul become the Head of Household (HOH) next week. The best friends are aiming to send James out of the Big Brother house.

In other news, Buddy TV recently released fun facts about the contestants and “Big Brother” Season 18 in general. This week’s POV happened to be the seventh time this season that it was used to save one houseguest. Nicole has survived 12 evictions without ever being nominated. She also happens to be the eighth houseguest in the history of “Big Brother” to have made it to the final 5 without being nominated.

“Big Brother” Season 18 will air its finale episode on Sept. 21 at 9 p.m. ET. Prior to this, CBS announced that there will still be three evictions, a Memory Lane episode and more. After the season wraps up, CBS All Access will premiere “Big Brother Over The Top” on Sept. 28 at 10 p.m. ET. The new show will be hosted by Julie Chen.
