Big Brother 20: And your final three Houseguests are…

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 20, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, it’s official.  We are now down to our final three!

After JC won the HoH, he nominate Tyler and Angela for eviction.  After Kaycee won the veto, she cast the one and only vote that was cast tonight.  Personally, I think that Kaycee should have sent Tyler out of the house because Tyler is probably the only person in the House who would have even a chance of beating her in a final two situation.  But Kaycee decided to honored the final two agreement that she and Tyler made early in the season and she voted to evict Angela.

So, here’s your final three!

KAYCEE, the veto queen!  Considering that Kaycee spent the first half of this season being dismissed by most fans, she has certainly come on strong here in the final half of the game.  She’s won 5 vetoes.  She’s won 1 HoH.  She’s won 1 hacker comp.  Kaycee is in the final three and I’m not sure that anyone can beat her if she makes it to the final two.

TYLER, the lifeguard!  Tyler’s been the front runner since the season began.  For the most part, he’s played a good game but I think he let his game slip when he fell in love with Angela.  His downfall might be his jury management skills.

JC, the underdog!  I never thought JC would make it this far.  Can he make it to the final two?  Anything’s possible but, of the three final houseguests, he has the weakest record when it comes to competitions.

Who will win?  We’ll find out next Wednesday!

It’s been a great season but all good things come to an end…

(…or do they?)

Big Brother 20: Let’s Open Up That Diary Room!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 19, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, if you saw tonight’s episode of Big Brother, here’s what you saw.  As expected, Sam was evicted by a vote of 2-o and, as she told Julie, she wasn’t particularly happy with Tyler’s vote.  (Seriously, jury management could very well be Tyler’s downfall.)

After Sam left, a new HoH was selected and the winner was …


That’s right, JC finally won something.  And he really needed this HoH because he was the next houseguest slated to go.  Though there’s been rumors online that Tyler threw the comp because he didn’t want to have to choose between nominating either Angela or Kaycee, it was obvious that Tyler did try to win.  This competition was not thrown to JC.  Say what you will about him, JC won this HoH on his own.

Though they didn’t show it on tonight’s show, JC has already made his nominations.  Most of the spoiler sites are indicating that JC nominated Angela and Tyler, with Angela as his target.  But really, it doesn’t matter who JC nominated.  What matters is who wins the veto.  With only four people left in the house, only one person will be able to vote on Thursday.  If either Angela or Tyler wins the veto and uses it, Kaycee will go up on the block and the veto winner will cast the one vote.  If Kaycee or JC wins the veto then the noms will probably remain the same and Kaycee will cast the deciding vote.

So, with all that in mind, it’s time to open up the diary room!

Who do you want to see evicted on Thursday?

ANGELA, the mean girl

KAYCEE, the veto champ


TYLER, the smitten lifeguard?

Cast your vote in the comments below or in the poll over on the right side of the page!  And then be sure to watch on Thursday to see who will be evicted and who will be our final three!

Happy voting,

Big Brother 20: Veto Ceremony Spoilers

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 17, 2018

Hi everyone!

Today was the veto meeting and Kaycee decided…

To use the veto to maintain the status quo by not using it change Angela’s nominations.  That means that JC and Sam remain on the block and, as of right now, Sam is still the target to be voted out.  Only Kaycee and Tyler will be casting votes on Tuesday and both of them are planning on voting for Sam.  Undoubtedly, Sam will not be happy to be betrayed by Tyler but Tyler’s burned so many bridges, he might as well go ahead and burn another one.

(Actually, there’s no way for Tyler not to burn a bridge on Tuesday.  Even if he voted to keep Sam, he’d have JC mad at him.)

So, here’s the schedule.  The feeds will go down on Tuesday and they will remain down until after Wednesday’s show.  So, needless to say, there’s not going to be much to report from the house tomorrow.  The vote will take place on Tuesday but we won’t see it until Wednesday.  In all probability, Sam will be the one voted out.  The only way that could change would be if JC just pushes Tyler so hard that Tyler decides to get rid of him early.

(Basically, since the double eviction, JC has been continually telling Tyler that he’s an idiot.  Tyler, needless to say, isn’t enjoying it.)

Then, on Thursday, another houseguest will be voted out.  Unless JC manages to win the HoH or the veto, it will probably be him.  After that, the final three will compete to be the final HoH and this season of Big Brother will come to an end two Wednesdays from now.

Fear not, though.  The same night that Big Brother ends, Survivor begins. 🙂

That’s the plan.  We’ll see what happens!  As far as tomorrow goes, if I see any spoilers confirming who has been voted out, I’ll post them here.  If not, our next post will be on Wednesday, after the eviction episode!

Big Brother 20: Panic

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 16, 2018

Hi y’all!

Just a quick recap, in case you missed it:

Angela is the HoH.

Sam and JC are on the block.

Kaycee has won the veto.

So, the plan right now is that Kaycee is not going to use the veto.  Sam is going to be voted out next and then, after that, JC will be voted out and it will be a Kaycee/Angela/Tyler final three.

As of right now, it doesn’t look like there’s anything that could split apart the alliance of Angela, Tyler, and Kaycee.  Assuming that JC doesn’t win the next HoH or the next veto, the only question is who, out of the final three, is going to be cut.  Tyler and Kaycee have had a final two agreement for almost the entire game and he’s told both Kaycee and JC that he’s willing to evict Angela, despite having a showmance with her.  But is Tyler telling the truth about that?  That’s the question.  Does Tyler realize that Kaycee will probably beat him if they’re both in the final two?

JC has figured out that Kaycee will be difficult to beat and he’s been trying to get Tyler to consider targeting her once they reach the final four.  JC has been panicking ever since Angela nominated him for eviction.  This is JC’s first time to be nominated — the ten minutes that he spent on the block during the double eviction don’t count — and he is not handling it well at all.  He’s angry and he’s frustrated and he seems to have finally figured out that he doesn’t really have as strong a bond with Tyler as he originally assumed.  Earlier today, JC approached Tyler and told him that he screwed up by getting rid of Brett and that he should have kept him around so that the three of them could have taken out Kaycee and Angela.  JC then started whining about how he knows that he’s going to be evicted once they reach the top 4.  For his part, Tyler told JC that he has as much of a chance as anyone to win either the HoH or the veto.

So, right now, it would appear that Sam’s only hope to stay in the House is that JC gets so whiny that he annoys everyone into voting him out early.  I don’t think that will happen because, for the most part, Tyler, Angela, and Kaycee like to stick to their original plan.  But who knows?

As always, we’ll see what happens!

Big Brother 20: Veto Comp Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 15, 2018

Hi y’all!

Okay, so there’s really been no shocks so far this week.

Angela won HoH.

Angela nominated Sam and JC for eviction.

And now, the veto has been won by…


That’s right.  This is Kaycee’s fourth veto win in a row.  Along with winning one HoH and one hacker comp and managing to get through almost the entire season without getting on anyone’s badside, Kaycee is emerging as the clear favorite to win this season.  She and Tyler do have a final two deal and Tyler has told her that he is going to honor it, even if it means evicting his showmance first.

Tyler, of course, could be lying.  It would be a total mistake for him to take anyone other than Angela to the final two.  However, I’m not sure Tyler understands how much the jury probably hates him.  There were only two people that the Tyler disliked more than Tyler and Tyler just blindsided one of them (Brett) during the live eviction.

Anyway, JC is really freaking out about being on the block but he need not worry.  Sam is the target and that’s not going to change.  No one takes JC seriously as a threat to win the next HoH.  What’s interesting is that, as of right now, JC seems to be the only person in the House who understands that Kaycee is a huge threat to win.  He’s tried to convince both Angela and Tyler that Kaycee needs to be blindsided.  JC’s right but, for some reason, both Tyler and Angela seem to be blind to just how strong a player Kaycee has become over the past few weeks.

The veto meeting will be on Monday.  There’s no way that Kaycee is going to use the veto, though if she did, Tyler would automatically become the replacement nominee.  The feeds will then go down on Tuesday, at which point Sam will probably be evicted from the House.

Big Brother 20: Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 14, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, the feeds are down for the nomination ceremony right now but I can tell you exactly who is going to be nominated and who is going to be targeted this week because Kaycee, Angela, and Tyler discussed it last night and nothing’s happened that would have changed their minds.

First off, in case you didn’t know, Angela is new the HoH.  We’ll see her win the HoH comp on Sunday’s show.  With Angela’s victory, that pretty much assured that these next few days are going to be dominated by Angela, Tyler, and Kaycee.  So, it should come as no shock that Angela is going to nominate JC and Sam for eviction.  From the conversation that Angela, Tyler, and Kaycee had last night, it’s clear that Sam is the target.  They feel that she’s a bigger risk to win the next HoH than JC and they’re probably right.

In her nomination speech, Angela is planning on telling Sam and JC that they’ve been nominated because there’s no way either one of them could be beaten in a final two situation.  What’s funny is that Angela’s right but she doesn’t realize it.

So, when the feeds come back, Sam and JC will be on the block and, unless she wins the veto tomorrow, Sam will probably be voted out next.  If this season is anything like previous seasons, that eviction will happen on either Monday or Tuesday, though they’ll present it as being live when they show it to us on Wednesday.  Chances are that the feeds will be down quite a bit this upcoming week.

I believe they’re having a celebratory concert in the backyard today, probably so they can film the dreaded flashback episode.  So, expect feeds to be down for a long time.

Big Brother 20: Double Eviction Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 13, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, let’s just make it official.  If you haven’t seen tonight’s Double Eviction episode, this will be a spoiler!  So, if you don’t want the results spoiled until you can watch it for yourself, stop reading now.

Tonight was the first and only double eviction episode of the 20th season of Big Brother.  First, Haleigh was voted out by a vote of 4-0.  No one was surprised to see her go and now, every member of the Hive has officially been voted out of the House.

After Haleigh was voted out, it was time for Operation Backdoor Brett.  Earlier this week, Brett made the mistake of telling Tyler that he felt Kaycee and Angela were getting too close and that it might be time to vote Angela out of the house.  Since Tyler is now in love with Angela, that meant that Brett’s days in the House were numbered.

First, Tyler won HoH.  As soon as Tyler won HoH, he assured Brett that either Kaycee or JC was the target (I’m not totally sure which name he said) and then told Brett to throw the POV.  Tyler said that he would happily get all the blood on his hands.  Brett looked confused by the request.

Tyler nominated JC and Sam for eviction.  Then, Angela won the veto.  Even when Brett congratulated Angela after the win, Angela told him that there was no way that she was going to use the veto and he was safe.

Exactly six minutes later, Angela used the veto, Tyler nominated Brett, and Brett was evicted by a 3-0 vote.

It was an exciting episode but you know what?  Tyler blew it.  Yes, he got out his target.  But he and Angela were so cold-hearted about it that they may very well have lost Brett’s vote.  When Angela used the veto, she smirked and said that she was staying “one step ahead.”  Then, when Tyler nominated Brett, he said that he was staying “two steps ahead.”  It was unnecessarily smug and not a smart way to treat someone heading to the jury.

What’s funny is that Tyler wouldn’t have made that mistake in the past.  He would have made it sound like the House was forcing him to put Brett up.   But ever since Tyler got involved with Angela, his social game has been slipping.  It’s like he wants to show that he can be just as cold and ruthless as Angela.

So, Brett is now gone.  Our final five are Tyler, Angela, Kaycee, JC, and Sam.  And now, we’re just waiting for the results of the next HoH comp!

Here’s the schedule for the rest of the season:

The next eviction will be aired on Wednesday.  Then, on Thursday, someone else will be evicted.  Then the final three will battle it out for the final HoH and a winner will be selected on the 26th!

We’ll see what happens!

Hi y’all!

So, it’s that time!  We’ve finally reached this season’s double eviction!  Now, if Kaitlyn had been able to solve the puzzle during week 4 and reenter the house, there would have been a double eviction during week 5.  But she failed and, as a result, this is going to be one of the few seasons of Big Brother to have only one double eviction!

As of right now, it appears that Haleigh will be voted out first and right now, unless he wins HoH or the veto, it looks like Brett’s going to be backdoored.

So you know what that means!

It’s time to open up the Diary Room!

Which two houseguests do you vote to evict?  Do you vote to evict:

ANGELA, half of this season’s most boring showmance,

BRETT, the master of the mean goodbye message

HALEIGH, the final members of the Hive

JC, the star of TMZ

KAYCEE, the one who keeps winning all those vetoes

SAM, the curb stompin’ welder


TYLER, production’s favorite lifeguard?

Cast your two votes over in the poll on the right side of the page or in the comments below!  And then be sure to tune in on Thursday night to see which two houseguests will join the jury!

Happy voting,

Big Brother 20: How About Some Pictures?

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 11, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, as of right now, there’s not a whole lot to report about the house.  Haleigh has been following Angela around everywhere and has basically been going through her usual ritual of sucking up to everyone in the house.  In fact, she’s been spending so much time with Angela that, during one of the few times when Haleigh wasn’t with her, Angela felt the need to reassure Sam that Haleigh is indeed the target this week.  As Angela explained it to Sam, everyone in the House is sick of Haleigh and can’t wait to vote her out.

So, again, it looks like Haleigh is definitely going to be the first person voted out of the House on Thursday.  What happens after that is anyone’s guess.  Assuming a member of Level 6 wins the HoH, I imagine that it’ll be either JC or Sam who follows her to the jury house.  If either Sam or JC wins HoH, all bets are off.

Since there’s not much going on in the House, I figured that I would share a few pictures with everyone.  First off, I’ve spent a lot of time criticizing JC this season but I did want to show everyone what he did today:

Secondly, on Saturday, we had this season’s comic book veto comp.  Production has released images of the covers for the five houseguests who were evicted prejury.  Here they are:






Because of the “Twinston” cover, the houseguests have been speculating that Winston and his twin may have been switching placed in the House, like the Nolan sisters did back in Big Brother 17.  Of course, that didn’t happen but Brett still seems to be pretty disturbed at the thought that he may have been hanging out with Winston’s twin instead of Winston.

We’ll get to see all of the comic book covers on tomorrow’s show!

And then on Thursday, it’ll be time for the double eviction!

We’ll see what happens,

Big Brother: Veto Ceremony Spoilers

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 10, 2018

Hi, everyone!

Okay, so today, they did the veto ceremony.  Before I talk about that (because, honestly, nothing really that interesting happened during the ceremony), I want to address some speculation that I’ve seen online.

We all know what’s been going on for the last few days.  Les Moonves, the president of CBS and the husband of Julie Chen, has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting several women, over a period of time that stretches from the late 80s to the early aughts.  When the first accusations came out, Julie issued a brief statement in which she stood by Moonves.  This weekend, six more women stepped forward.  Moonves has stepped down as the president of CBS and whether Julie Chen is going to stay at the network is questionable.  She released a statement this morning saying that she was taking a leave of absence from The Talk but that she would host Thursday’s live episode of Big Brother.

If you go on twitter right now, you will find a surprisingly large number of people who are convinced that, if Julie leaves CBS, that means that Big Brother is going to be canceled.  Let me assure you right now: Big Brother is not going to be canceled.  As long as a show is making money for a network, it’s not going to be canceled.  Right now, Big Brother is a moneymaker.  The show regularly wins its time slot and it’s also cheap to produce.  So, ignore the doomsayers online.  At the most, next season may have a new host but Big Brother isn’t going anywhere.

As for today’s veto meeting, Kaycee did …


I know, I know.  As Danielle would say, “Shocka!”  There was no reason for Kaycee to use the veto and she didn’t.  So, on Thursday night, Sam and Haleigh will be sitting on the block and, unless Sam lets her paranoia get the better of her and ends up pulling a Rachel, Haleigh will be voted out.

However, what happens after Haleigh’s voted out?  Who goes next in the double eviction?

Of course, it all depends on who wins the second HoH.  Once Haleigh’s gone, Tyler will basically have a final two deal with every single person left in the House.  So, I imagine he will not want to win HoH because, if he does, there’s no way he can’t betray someone.  If Angela wins HoH, I have a feeling that she’ll probably nominate Sam and JC and Sam will be evicted.

Brett has been saying that he thinks Angela and Tyler need to be broken up but, if he won HoH, would he actually have the courage to nominate one of them?  You can ask the same question of JC.  Personally, I don’t think either one of them would.  I get the feeling that they both would just go ahead and play it safe by targeting Sam.  If Sam wins HoH, I imagine that she’ll definitely nominate Angela for eviction but I don’t know who else she would put up there.  JC maybe?

As always, we’ll see what happens on Thursday.  What I can say for sure is that Haleigh’s about to go to the jury house and Level 6 is about to have to turn on each other.
