Who Is In The 8-Pack On 'Big Brother 18'? The Alliance Is Definitely Run By The Veterans

You can't have a season of Big Brother without some kind of huge alliance running the game. Well, that's definitely happening in Season 18 thanks to veterans James Huling, Nicole Franzel, Da'Vonne Rogers, and Frank Eudy. As soon as they entered the game, they knew major targets were on their backs. Some of the newbies don't want the vets around, especially since they already had their chance to play. The vets surely didn't waste time in ensuring their time in the BB house wouldn't come to a quick end, so what did they do? They formed a pretty strong alliance — with four of the rookie houseguests. They also dubbed their group with a catchy name — the 8-Pack. So just who is in the 8-Pack on Big Brother 18 ?

It consists of all four vets and newbies, Tiffany Rousso, Corey Brooks, Zakiyah Everette, and Michelle Meyer. I'm still a bit confused as to why Paulie Calafiore (brother of Big Brother 16 runner-up Cody Calafiore) isn't in the alliance, especially since he was pretty much a pawn for the 8-Pack. Doesn't that make him part of the group? His loyalties seems to lie with them. Maybe the 8-Pack will turn into the 9-Pack? Who knows.

As for the current 8-Pack, it sure seems to be a strong and tight-knit group — for now, anyways. They're basically running the game when it comes to calling the shots and deciding the pecking order of who's going home. Obviously, that could all change throughout the 90 days in the house, but for right now the alliance doesn't seem like it can be stopped.

Even though the five women in the 8-Pack have formed their own outside alliance, all while declaring themselves the "Fatal Five," it still seems like the vets are loyal to one another. It will be interesting to see if James, Frank, Nicole, and Da'Vonne try to make it to the final four together.

Whatever the case, the vets are definitely running the show and the 8-Pack. If the newbies want any chance of making it to the end, they better start thinking for themselves and playing a smart game.
