Weekly summary[ edit ] The main events in the Big Brother 18 house are summarised in the table below. A typical week begins with nominations, followed by the shopping task, and then the eviction of a Housemate during the live Friday or Thursday episode. Evictions, tasks, and other events for a particular week are noted in order of sequence. They chose Tom, who entered the house as the final housemate. As the People's Housemate, the viewers are able to control Tom's decisions in the house.
Tom's first mission was to exile some of his housemates. To help him make this decision, he took part in a live Facebook web chat with the public. On Day 3, Tom was given the opportunity to swap some citizen housemates with exile housemates. He swapped Charlotte with Mandy, and Hannah with Imran. At the end of this, all exile housemates faced the first eviction. He had to pick three of these rules for them to follow.
On Day 2, housemates guessed which headlines about each other were real and which were fake news. On Day 4, housemates participated in a number of debates, with the Exiles and Citizens going head-to-head. Housemates then participated in a mock version of the simultaneous general election. Exits On Day 5, Mandy became the first housemate to be evicted after being evicted by Tom. See twists Week 2 Tasks On Day 6, Tom entered the "Intelligence Centre" for the final time believing he was still the "People's Housemate" and that he was interacting with the public and answering their questions.
In fact he was answering questions set by his fellow housemates who were watching from the main house. On Day 7, the housemates took part in a quiz with a twist. They each selected a gift at random without knowing that the gift actually contained a punishment. If they answered their question correctly they would get to choose a housemate to give the punishment to, however if they answered incorrectly they would receive the punishment themselves.
On Day 9, the housemates took part in their first shopping task where Sukhvinder became mayor of the village with Kayleigh as deputy. They then assigned job roles to the other housemates, but left some unemployed. Gemma Collins , Marnie Simpson and Nicola McLean entered as guests in the village, and the employed housemates had to cater to their every needs. Any housemate left unemployed at the end of the task would miss out on the luxury shopping budget.
On Day 12, the VIP guests each led a team of housemates in a series of summer party games Nominations On Day 7, during a task, Joe was given the punishment of giving a killer nomination. He chose Raph, therefore automatically putting him up for eviction. Charlotte, Imran, Kayleigh, Rebecca and Sukhvinder received the most nominations, and therefore joined Raph in facing eviction.
Tasks On Day 13, Raph took part in a number of challenges in order to win himself a birthday party. On Day 14, Chanelle and Kieran were given a secret task to hide several gnomes around the house, that one by one increased in size over the duration of the task.
Unbeknownst to them, the other housemates, led by Rebecca, had a secret task to return the gnomes to the Diary Room. At the end of the task they chose Isabelle and Savannah to become housemates.
Nominations On Day 15, housemates nominated for the second time. On Day 21, the housemates began their next shopping task in which all housemates had to act like hippies and promote peace and love in the house. They had to ensure that they chanted when the gong sounded and at least two housemates needed to touch the "Tree of Love" at all times.
The task continued on Day 22 and However, due to some housemates failing to stick to the rules of the task, they failed. Nominations On Day 20, housemates nominated for the third time. Hannah, Isabelle, Lotan and Tom received the most nominations and therefore face eviction this week. Exits On Day 21, Lotan was removed from the house for aggressive behaviour. The other housemates were told they would have to earn their right to nominate. Later that day, the nominations were broadcast to the house.
Charlotte, Joe and Tom received the most nominations and therefore face the fifth eviction. They each had to enter the "Survival Room" and endure a challenge. In order to pass, they just had to remain in the room during each challenge. They passed the task on Day Each housemates had to enter "The Light", where they were given the choice of remaining loyal to their housemates in an attempt to pass the task, or to occur a fail by having contact with a loved one.
To pass, they had to keep the lightbulb lit. It lost power as long as housemates had contact with loved ones, but gained power when housemates danced on the dance floor. As all of the power drained, the housemates failed the task. Nominations On Day 37, the housemates began "The Hunt" - a series of games instead of nominations where the losers faced the next eviction. That day, Chanelle became the first victim, and Simone became the second.
Here it was revealed that Simone had received the most votes to evict and was evicted via the backdoor. With the least votes to save, Sue was evicted.
The teams competed in challenges for money towards their team's jackpot. This continued into Day 43, where both Raph and Kieran were banned from competing by the opposing team. Andrew pressed his buzzer first and won the money as well as evicting Sam. They passed this task. Exits On Day 44, Sam became the eighth housemate to be evicted but remained in the house and participated in tasks and nominations until Day Chanelle, Ellie, Hannah, Kieran and Tom received the most nominations and face this week's double eviction.
However unbeknownst to them, this eviction was fake and they were actually sent to The Attic where they were able to spy on their fellow housemates. They chose Charlotte, Isabelle, Kieran and Raph, who then had to do a performance. On Day 50, the housemates took part in a number of tasks surrounding the stages of life.
The task continued into Day 51, where Chanelle, Imran, Rebecca, Sue and Sukhvinder all made brief returns to the house for Deborah and Kieran's fake wedding and eventual divorce.
As Hannah and Kieran received the least amount of votes to win, they were sent to hell and were therefore evicted through the backdoor. All the remaining housemates were sent to heaven and earned a place in the final. Tom left in fourth place whilst Deborah finished in third. Isabelle was then announced as the winner, leaving Raph in second place.
