BB20 – Ep 19 – August 8, 2018
I had been excited to see more Level 6 suffering, but hats off to the entirety of Level 6 pulling the damn wool over the eyes of the rest of the house. Sure, we’ve seen the evicted houseguests properly put their names together when pressed to when confronted with the fact that there IS an alliance in the house. But it seems that if left to their own devices, they just don’t put it together. And it’s pretty damn glorious to behold?
Setting Up the Pieces
Tyler and Level 6 weren’t about to get hoodwinked by the BB Hacker without putting up a fight. And man, did they.
While these fools kept being suspicious of each other and further dissolving any alliance or trust they have, mostly due to Bayleigh…
Angela and Kaycee start making sure the Veto Comp is stacked with Level 6 players. How? By pretty much convincing Bayleigh that it would be greeeat to have Kaycee play Veto finally. While Angela is wrong about assuming that Bayleigh is the Hacker, it didn’t matter. But before we go further, WHY THE FUCK is Bayleigh strategizing with Kaycee and Angela? Did the last month of game NOT happen? Am I fucking high? Even if she’s not explicitly aware of Level 6, isn’t it obvious that Kaycee and Angela are on “the other side?” No? Because here she is having strategy conversations and clearly thinking they’re real!
So Bayleigh goes and shares these thoughts with her friends Haleigh and Faysal. Haleigh listens and considers it, as she’s doing her best to keep out of the limelight so she hears this suggestion and thinks it’s Continue reading Level 6 Knows How to Play
BB20 – Ep 18 – August 5, 2018
Whatwhatwhat???? Is this one of those episodes that heralded a turning point in the season??? Did HALEIGH of all people make a defining move against Tyler??? Did anything else of note happen this episode??? I think so, but not much really else mattered, so let’s get to it!
All The First Half Stuff Barely Mattered
Angela and Brett celebrated their ouster of Rachel. Tyler, Kaycee, and JC celebrated their ouster of Rachel. Rockstar cried some more. Bayleigh was on a warpath and kept accusing her own alliancemates of betraying her. How is no one seeing Tyler is a common thread here??? Is JC really that good at being devious that everyone trusts him? None of that really factored into my enjoyment of this episode, as the BBHacker twist is what this episode was ALL about.
Angela’s HoH Experience is Seriously Undermined
She knows what the impending announcement means to her game. It means her HoH week is gonna be undermined by this twist if the 50/50 odds don’t go her way. I’d say I feel bad for her, but I don’t. She’s not coming across very well this last week or so, and maybe it’s the edit, but it certainly doesn’t seem like we’re missing her friendly side…
Anyway, before we get too far into the twist, we had a mid-episode nominations ceremony that went pretty much as expected, with Angela nominating Scottie & Rockstar but fully intending to backdoor Bayleigh. And I don’t think Bayleigh has a clue. Girl.
Welcome to the BBHacker Twist
Talk about an insanely overpowered twist:
- Gets to replace one of the nominations
- Gets to choose one of the Veto players
- Gets to keep one person’s vote from counting

BB20 – Ep 17 – August 2, 2018
You know, people who become pawns always fret that “pawns go home,” and it’s true, but I think a big big part of it is self-fulfilling prophecy. Obviously we saw Rachel storm out of the house and then that whole super-bitchy goodbye message from Angela, but I think we only ended up here because Rachel was unable to keep herself from flipping the fuck out being on the block. So she ended up annoying her alliance and getting tossed out. It sucks for her, but I really don’t see her as some grand victim. She just played herself out of the house, much like Angela said.
Lots of Brett Pics
Brett is hot. Here he is very sad about still being on the block.
The voting members of Level 6 discuss who to keep. Angela is firmly on Team Brett, as are Kaycee and Tyler. Sorry, Rachel. Am I shocked they’d keep Brett? Frankly, yes, due to his physical threat and clear deviousness. But it seems the rationale was that Rachel isn’t chill enough to stay without hurting their game.
Jesus. I’m gonna need a Continue reading Rachel Got Pawned
BB20 – Ep 16 – August 1, 2018
I enjoyed this episode, as there was plenty of annoying drama, what looked like a fun Veto, and a surprising turn of events heading into the Veto Ceremony leading to a decision that definitely got swayed by the purest of happenstance.
Rachel has definitely been getting more airtime recently – FAR more than Angela or Kaycee. But it’s starting to be pretty unflattering for Rachel here as she’s all reaction and drama when she needs to chill the fuck out. Being on the block has broken the poor woman and she is having a hard time not annoying the shit out of everyone. CHILL.
And then there was this bit of nonsense, when Faysal decides to lord it over JC that he alone saved him from being one of Bayleigh’s nominees. JC isn’t buying this one bit and pushes back, but Faysal is such a terrible player that he starts talking about how he made sure Bayleigh didn’t do it. JC sees the potential to fracture Faysal from Bay and Hay, which of course he immediately seizes on and innocently lets Bayleigh know what Faysal told him. It works like a charm.
Bayleigh wakes up Faysal and lays into him as she’s pissed that others are getting the impression she’s Faysal’s bitch. Faysal is like, really, really bad at this game. I had to laugh when Continue reading Loose Lips Save Bayleigh’s Ship
BB20 – Ep 15 – July 29, 2018
Well, color me surprised that we are actually entering the next phase of the game and it’s managed to keep my interest. Bayleigh winning HoH certainly is something that needed to happen to prevent the remnants of FOUTTE from getting evicted, and to keep me interested in what happens next. And it seems good ol’ Bay is not about to let this power go to waste.
Bay Gets Her HoH
The goal in this challenge was to ride your Email Sled from the Outbox to the Inbox and aim for getting there as close to 8 seconds as possible. Bayleigh went FIRST and knocked out an 8.08 second time. Although they drug this segment out as long as possible, no one even came close to beating her. It was stunning and Continue reading Your Big Brother Bay Has Arrived
