Coming into Big Brother 18 as the sibling of a former contestant, Paulie quickly aligned with the returning players. From the start, he was able to control the house, manipulate situations and eliminate many threats to his game. However, after a blowup with a fewofthe women in the house in week 7, he, along with his allies Corey, Nicole and Zakiyah became targets for a new power alliance. When the house successfully evicted Paulie's showmance partner, Zakiyah during the first half of the Double Eviction, Paulie was left devastated but safe when Corey won HoH and PoV in the second part. However, he was nominated the next week against Corey by Victor. When he or Corey did not win the PoV, they remained on the block together and Paulie was later evicted by a 5 to 0 vote, becoming the fourth member of the jury. He placed 8th.

Note: Paulie actually won the second luxury on Week 9. The reason why Victor was falsely given the luxury was because the "Big Brother County Fair" occurred when Paulie was still in the house. However, the episode aired after Paulie's eviction, so the producers edited Paulie out of the episode completely.
