Paul was initially very vocal about getting the returning players out, forming an alliance to go against them. However, after his ally, Jozea, was blindsided, he started building trust with the other HouseGuests and began working with the returning players. Victor Arroyo; another ally of Paul was evicted in week 2. He then formed an alliance with Paulie. Paul and Paulie worked together until Paul realized that it was best to evict him. Once Victor returned to the game, he and Paul created the Sitting Ducks alliance. The two friends fought together until they were both nominated Week 12. Paul managed to survive eviction while Victor was evicted. Paul was considered a very aggressive player, being unafraid to make big moves, willing to confront others, and having a hand in numerous evictions. Paul was known for being able to talk his way out of many situations and for playing a great social and strategic game. His competition skills, strategic gameplay, and adept social game earned him praise from fans and past HouseGuests alike. However, he received criticism for insulting other HouseGuests, making many jury members lose their respect for his gameplay.
He was a competition threat, winning 3 HoHs and 3 PoVs, thus making him the seventh male HouseGuest to win six competitions in a season. After Victor's eviction, Paul managed to win the last 2 HoHs and final PoV. After winning the final HOH, he chose to infamously evict James and take Nicole to the Final Two. However, this move was fatal as Nicole won the game by a vote of 5 to 4, thus leaving Paul as the runner-up.
His decision to evict James has been deemed a huge mistake by the viewers and some of the jurors because he could have easily won against James.
Along with Danielle Reyes and Dan Gheesling (season 14), Paul is considered to be another victim of a bitter jury; despite what majority of viewers perceived as a stronger game than the actual winner.

Post Big Brother
- Paul returned to Big Brother: Over The Top to host the Head of Household competition Perfect ShOTT.
- Paul competed on the Big Brother team on the CBS gameshow Candy Crush that aired on May 24, 2016. with his teammate and fellow housegeust Da'Vonne Rogers and Big Brother 16 houseguests Frankie Grande and Caleb Reynolds.
- Paul is the first person in Big Brother 18 to be vetoed twice in a row (Weeks 1 and 2). He won the Power of Veto and used it on himself in Week 1. In Week 2, Paulie used the Veto on him.
- He is one of five HouseGuests, with the others being Nicole Nilson Schaffrich, Porsche Briggs, Steve Moses and Jason Roy to be nominated in the first week and reach the Final 2.
- Paul is the second HouseGuest to be nominated every week in the first three weeks. The other HouseGuest is John McGuire from Big Brother 17.
- Paul is the third HouseGuest to win the POV twice in Big Brother 18, following Paulie Calafiore and Corey Brooks (and later Nicole Franzel) respectively.
- Paul is the seventh HouseGuest in the history of Big Brother to have the Power of Veto used on him three times. The other HouseGuests were Alison Irwin (Season 4), James Rhine (Season 6), Janelle Pierzina (Season 7), Jen Johnson (Season 8), McCrae Olson (Season 15), and John McGuire (Season 17), respectively.
- Coincidentally, he is the second HouseGuest (and the first male), after Alison, to have the Veto used on him three times and make the Final Two.
- Ironically, they both became the runners-up of their seasons.
- Paul is tied with Erika Landin from Big Brother All-Stars for the record for the most nominations in a season by a member of the Final Two with six.
- Paul won the most competitions for a houseguest in Big Brother 18, having won six competitions.
- Paul was the most nominated houseguest in Big Brother 18 with a total of six nominations.
- Paul was the second HouseGuest to win HOH three times in Big Brother 18, following Victor.
- Paul was the sixth HouseGuest in Big Brother 18 to win Head of Household and the Power of Veto within the same week. Paulie, Bridgette, Corey, Victor, and Nicole accomplished this as well.
- Paul is tied with Paulie and Corey for the most PoV competitions won in Big Brother 18, with 3 wins each.
- Paul is the sixth person in the history of the show to win at least 3 HoHs and 3 PoVs in a single season.
- Paul is also tied with Frank Eudy, Shane Meaney, Ian Terry, Frankie Grande, Cody Calafiore, and Steve Moses for the most competitions won by a male in a single season (6).
- Every time a female won HoH in Big Brother 18, Paul was nominated.
- Likewise, every time Paul was HoH, he always nominated at least one female when possible. (During his HoH reigns on Days 90 & 99, only one female was left in the house, meaning he was forced to nominate one male each time.)
- He is one of nine final HOHs who didn't end up winning the game. The other eight are Nicole Schaffrich, Alison Irwin, Ivette Corredero, Ryan Quicksall, Cody Calafiore, Gary Levy, Godfrey Mangwiza, and Kelsey Faith.
- Paul is the first male to lose to a female in the Final Two in the American version. He was followed by Jason Roy.
- If the Jury would have been the original seven person Jury and the same vote took place, Paul would have won Big Brother 18 over Nicole in a 4–3 vote.
- Paul holds the record for the most votes to win for a runner-up with four.
- If Paul had voted to evict Nicole instead of James, he would receive votes from every jury member except Natalie and Michelle.
