Thursday's (Aug. 25) "Big Brother 18" endurance competition is a critical moment in the season -- and Zap2it is here to bring you all the fun and drama as it plays out live on the feeds.

After Victor was evicted by a 2-1 vote during Thursday's live episode, the houseguests were informed that it was time for a jury member to re-enter the house. The comp set-up is that all the houseguests are in the backyard for the annual "stand on a plank against a wall and get nasty things thrown at you" competition. Should be fun.

The non-evicted houseguests are competing for HOH and the jury members are competing with them but separately to return to the house -- but if a jury member is the last person standing, he or she can win HOH for week 10. The stakes are the highest they've been all season for certain competitors -- Paul especially.

Follow along with our live blog to get all the dirt on the deals made and titles earned.

Here we go, guys. Let’s do this!

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:09 pm

Whoa, we’re only a few minutes in and Da’Vonne and Zakiyah just dropped. Wow.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:11 pm

Day and Zak totally just gave up.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:12 pm

And also, this is hilarious.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:14 pm

Paulie is whining about being stuck with three girls in the jury house and how mean they were to him. Ummm…..

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:17 pm

And Corey’s down, he won’t be HOH this week. So he can go back to sleeping a lot.

James, Nicole, Paul, Paulie, Bridgette and Victor are left in the HOH comp.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:26 pm

Annnnd Bridgette is done. Bummer.

Hmmm, we’ve got extended fish, so …. who fell?

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:37 pm

Nope, nobody fell — still James, Nicole, Paul, Paulie and Victor.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:40 pm

Paulie’s done, Paulie’s done. Ding dong, the psycho’s gone! WOOOOO!

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:41 pm

This also means Victor returns to the house, he was the last juror standing!

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:41 pm

Except now Victor just dropped, so he’s not HOH. Bummer. James, Nicole and Paul are the last three on the wall.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:53 pm

Ooooh, James is shaking. It’s looking like this is going to come down to Nicole and Paul.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20167:53 pm

People seem pretty pumped about Victor returning to the house (again)

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:00 pm

Well, this is a new contingent …

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:10 pm

It’s still James, Nicole and Paul, all going pretty strong.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:17 pm

Victor’s a big guy, so it’s not a huge surprise he dropped as soon as he knew he was the returning juror, but we thought he might work a little harder to get HOH.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:22 pm

This HOH comp is very revealing in the Nicole/James alliance — they are obviously very tight and it would not surprise us that if they get in a final three situation with each other and Corey or Natalie, they take each other and cut their showmance partner loose.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:22 pm

Nicole and James are thick as thieves up there on the wall, whispering and helping each other out.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:26 pm

Kermit is all of us.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:27 pm

Annnnnd Paul is out. Darn. Well, looks like another week of Victor/Paul on the block. Talk about a twist gone terribly wrong.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:28 pm

Nicole and James are playing “Let’s Make a Deal.” Nicole desperately wants a letter from her family, while James says he can’t be on slop again.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:30 pm

C’mon, James, hang on dude. Then at least we have a sliver of a chance Corey goes up.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:31 pm

Nicole to James: “You can literally have my HOH, all I want is my letter.” Ughhhh, that is gross.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:31 pm

James wants to win a wall comp and Nicole is really laying it on thick. “You want to win a wall comp and I haven’t heard from my family in 72 days.” Wow. That is some grade A guilt trip.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:40 pm

Twitter does not seem happy with Nicole’s whining.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:50 pm

They’re battling, but James is shaking pretty badly.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:52 pm

Everyone is cracking up hard about the three girls (Bridgette, Zakiyah and Da’Vonne) reacting to Paulie in the jury house. Admittedly, it was pretty funny. His reaction? Not so much, because Paulie is super bitter. But their reception of him was hilarious.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:55 pm

James decides to drop so that Nicole can get a letter from her mom — he’s making sure he and Natalie are safe, but James is dunzo.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:55 pm

So, Nicole is HOH — expect Victor and Paul to go on the block.

Andrea Reiher August 25, 20168:56 pm
