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
BB20 – Ep 14 – July 26, 2018
I don’t have the energy or the sobriety to do a full post for this episode. The only thing to really discuss is that Kaitlyn wasn’t able to save herself, whether by avoiding the votes to keep her in the house or to take advantage of the use of Sam’s “Bonus Life” power, as she just couldn’t get it together to solve the 5-piece puzzle. SMDH.
With her eviction, it really does kind of close the book on the First Act of this year’s Big Brother. Much of the noisier contestants have been evicted, and we enter into a weird state where it’s not clear what the next set of storylines will be. Will Brett be a catalyst for what’s to come? Is Sam going to evolve into something even more annoying? Will we ever hear Angela or Kaycee speak? The Act II of this season better surprise, or it could be that this season is about to get really boring.
Status & Standings:
Outgoing Head of Household: Sam
Nominated for Eviction: Kaitlyn & Rockstar
Evicted: Kaitlyn (9-1 vote, with JC voting to keep Kaitlyn)
New Head of Household: TBD
I am hopeful that something interesting will happen in the upcoming set of episodes…but I’m not confident it will. There’s really no one who seems to be at Tyler’s level remaining. Does he steamroll his way to a victory? I think so. But fingers crossed there’s something interesting to come in the next month.
Oh, and here’s the Off the Block video with Ross & Marissa and Kaitlyn – good stuff within:
BB20 – Ep13 – July 25, 2018
The shitshow continued. Sam explained that Kaitlyn and Haleigh can waste their breath trying to change her mind about what she sees, which was of course something they both loved to hear.
Kaitlyn did indeed try to figure out where Sam was coming from and it mostly came down to Sam not seeing Kaitlyn as an empowered woman, and being pretty judgy in how Kaitlyn plays the game. Did it seem kind of like Sam might just be jealous of the relationships that Kaitlyn has built?
JUST A LITTLE BIT, mmkay? I know the BB editors were hammering us over the head with this scene, but yeah, Sam’s righteousness comes off a bit too hypocritical when we see her gushing all over Faysal as he literally just finished putting himself on top of you. mmmmWHAT? Do I begrudge Sam getting a taste of that man? nope, not one bit. It’s the game. But for her to be so fucking judgmental about how other girls are playing still irks me to no end.
Yet there are multiple holes being dug here, and we’ve touched on the main one doing the digging….
With both of his main allies on the block, Fessy is not in a good spot. You know what makes that spot even worse? Promising both women that you’re going to take them down.
Just….don’t, Fessy. Don’t. Every time you talked to either Kaitlyn or Haleigh, it just kept getting WORSE. Look, it’s clear, you are terrible at this game. Competitions, sure, you’re gonna win some. But the game of Big Brother is something you are NOT good at. You should never have told Kaitlyn that you were going to save her. Lie or be vague, but don’t be Continue reading Digging a Hole
