Big Brother Over The Top: What Happened Last Night…

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 27, 2016

Hi, y’all!

If you saw Big Brother Over The Top last night, you witnessed some drama!  It’s hard for me to think of another time when the house was as evenly and bitterly divided as it’s been this season.  This is like season 6 all over again.

Personally, there are people that I like on both sides of the house.  Personally, like a lot of the commenters on this site, I tend to side with the Ballsmashers over the Misfits.  In fact, there’s next to nobody on the Misfits that I like.  That said, I’m also really tired of looking at Scott and I wouldn’t mind if he got sent home this week.

And it could happen!

Okay, just to recap:

Last night, the house voted.  The three nominees for eviction were Scott, Neeley, and Whitney.  Kryssie, the HoH, was targeting Scott and was convinced that she had gotten Morgan to vote to evict him but Morgan decided to stick with her alliance and vote to evict Neeley.  With America also voting to evict Neeley, the final vote was 4-3 in favor of evicting Neeley.

And so Neeley left.  Buh bye.

Kryssie, of course, reacted to this by standing around with a glum expression on her face and refusing to speak.  And then she cried, again.  When Justin comforted her, Kryssie told him, “America doesn’t love us anymore.”  Uhmm…Kryssie, America never loved you.  During the first two weeks of the game, Jason’s fans used you to keep him safe but otherwise, they’re pretty indifferent to you.

Before she left, Neeley accused Scott of “terrorizing” Danielle.  This led to a long argument between Scott and Jason.  Jason accused Scott of being a bully.  Scott said he wasn’t.  (Jason was also upset that Scott clapped both during the veto and when Neeley was evicted.)  For me, it was strange to watch this conversation because, in many ways, I found myself agreeing with Jason.  Don’t get me wrong — I can’t stand Jason and I think it’s a bit hypocritical of him to criticize anyone for being a petty bully.  Jason pretty much defines pettiness.  But Scott is starting to get on my nerves.  He’s not the great player that he thinks he is and he doesn’t seem to realize that the Ball-smashers are going to cut him loose as soon as they no longer need his vote.  I don’t know if I’d quite call him a bully but he’s definitely a creep.

Anyway, Danielle heard Scott claiming that bullying is just a strategy so she came running into the kitchen and started screaming at Scott about how she’s been bullied all her life and how people commit suicide as a result of bullying and again, I would be on Danielle’s side if not for the fact that she and Shane spent an entire week trying to bully Scott into giving him their vote.

Anyway, just when things were getting good, the feeds cut out and, when we came back, it was time for the HoH competition.  Danielle won the competition but it really doesn’t matter.  America’s got so much power this week that it really doesn’t matter who the HoH is.

Whoever gets the care package will be allowed to eliminate the votes of three houseguests.  If a Ball-smasher gets the care package, she can eliminated every Misfit from voting.  If America nominates Kryssie for eviction, that’s it for her.

We’ll see what happens!

Big Brother Over The Top: The Diary Room Is Now Open!!!!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 25, 2016

Hi y’all!

Well, they had the veto ceremony today.  Morgan, who won the veto on Monday, used it and took herself off the block.  Kryssie replaced her with Whitney.  Meanwhile, Neeley has been nominated by America!

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

Do you vote to evict:

NEELEY, America’s choice

SCOTT, Kryssie’s choice


WHITNEY, Kentucky’s choice?

Vote in the poll over on the right side of the page or in the comments below!

Happy voting!

Lisa Marie

(I vote for Neeley because I think Kryssie needs to be taken down a peg or three.)


Big Brother Over The Top: Kryssie’s Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 23, 2016

Hey, y’all!

Is everyone ready for a new page?  Well, here it is.  I have to admit that I’m a little bit torn up right now over The Walking Dead but I can still find the strength to let you know who has been nominated in the Big Brother House!

Kryssie is HoH.

The care package went Alex and, as a result, she is safe this week.  Assuming that I read the rule correct, Alex cannot even be put up as a replacement nominee.  She’s having to be a servant for this week but the important thing is that she’s safe and, judging from twitter, it appears that she has won over a lot of viewers.

Kryssie made her nominations today.  She nominated Morgan and Scott.  (Morgan is Alex’s sister but no one in the house knows that, though Jason suspects.  Seriously, Morgan and Alex might as well be twins.)  Kryssie told Scott that “It’s just a game, it’s nothing personal,” which was the same thing that Scott said to her after he evicted Shane.

Veto is tomorrow!  Also tomorrow, we’ll learn who America has nominated for eviction.  On twitter, the Misfit fans are demanding that everyone vote for Shelby.  Everyone else seems to be planning on voting for Neeley.

Personally, I voted for Neeley.  I don’t have anything against Neeley but, to be honest, Neeley is boring.  At least Shelby’s funny.

We’ll see what happens!

Big Brother Over The Top: Shane’s Gone and Kryssie is HoH

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 20, 2016

Hi, everyone!

Here’s just a quick update of what happened last night:

Shane was evicted!  Yay!  It was a tie vote.  Four houseguests — Morgan, Alex, Shelby, and Whitney voted to evict Shane.  Three houseguests — Jason, Justin, and Kryssie — voted to evict Danielle.  Jason said, “It’s a sad night for the Late Night Jamboree” before casting his vote.  Boo hoo, Jason, boo hoo.

America, however, voted to evict Danielle!  That led to a tie vote.  So, Scott was allowed to break the vote.  As he started to explain why he was voting to evict Shane, Shane actually tried to interrupt him.  The funny thing about that is that, if Shane hadn’t spent the whole 2nd week being a bully and threatening Scott, he probably wouldn’t have been voted out.

But no, Shane is clueless.  And, as a result, Scott got to send him packing!  Yay!

Now, Danielle seemed to take Shane’s eviction a lot better than I thought she would.  She did attempt a few tears but you could tell that it required some effort on her part.  Kryssie, meanwhile, turned into a blubbering mess and started yelling about how unfair it was and how upset she was.

“Shut up, Kryssie!” I yelled at the computer.

But then Kryssie went on to win HoH so I guess I’ll have to listen to her for the rest of the week.

So, that’s where were at right now.  Shane is gone and Kryssie is HoH.

Sorry, everyone, I totally forgot to open up the diary room earlier.  These Wednesday evictions always sneak up on me!

Anyway, though it may be late, the Diary Room is now open!  Earlier today, Justin used his veto and he saved Kryssie.  Scott nominated Shane in her place.

So, who do you vote to evict!?

Do you vote to evict

DANIELLE, America’s target

SHANE, America’s ex-boyfriend


NEELEY, America’s forgotten houseguest?

Cast your votes in the comments below or in the poll over on the right side of the page!  And we’ll see what happens on Wednesday night when the votes are cast and someone else is evicted from the Big Brother House!

Big Brother Over The Top: Heh heh…

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 17, 2016

Hi y’all!

Well, what can I say?  GOD BLESS AMERICA!

After spending the past three weeks begging America to save her and bragging about how loved she is, Danielle got a wake up call today.  Actually, to be honest, she got that wake up call this weekend when she first learned that she was now a have not.  But, just in case she missed that she is not America’s favorite, she learned today that the viewers had nominated her for eviction!

As you can imagine, Danielle did not take it well.  Tears were shed.  Curses were uttered.  America and twitter were blamed.

Then it was time for the veto comp!  And guess who won?  Alex and Justin!  Now, Alex is planning on using the veto so that Shane can be backdoored.  Personally, I think it would be smarter to target Danielle but Scott seems to really want Shane out.

Danielle did not react well to losing that veto.  She pulled a Rachel and broke down into tears.  Why, she demanded, didn’t Justin throw the competition so that she could win!?

Why, Danielle?  Maybe because the world doesn’t revolve around you.  Both Danielle and Kryssie have been begging Justin to use the veto on them but I don’t see Justin doing that.  Justin has to know that, with Shane already destined to be nominated when Alex uses her veto, using his veto would mean that his biggest ally, Jason, would be nominated.

So, the Backyard Jamboree or the LNC or whatever it is they call themselves — they are going to lose a member this week.

That’s good new to come home to!

Big Brother Over The Top: I’m Back!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 16, 2016

Hi, everyone!

I’m back from vacation but I’m still in the process of getting caught up with what’s happening in the Big Brother House.  But I did want to post a quick update (and give everyone a new page to comment under).  So, here’s where thing stand right now:

Scott is the HoH.  Scott also won America’s Care Package, which gave him the power to decide what type of veto the HGs would compete for this week.  He picked the Double Veto, which means that two vetos will be rewarded this week.

The Have Nots, also picked by America: Danielle, Shelby, and Alex.  It’s significant that Danielle was selected because it shows that even Jason’s fanbase is starting to turn against her.  If you’ve seen the live feeds, you know why.  Danielle is totally and completely self-centered and rude.  Plus, she made the mistake of saying that she needed America’s help after she lost the HoH.  Judging from twitter, a lot of viewers felt that Danielle was expecting them to do all of the “work.”

Scott’s plan this week is to get out either Shane or Danielle.  But, instead of nominating them, he nominated two pawns.  Kryssie and Neely have been nominated for eviction but Scott’s plan is to use the double veto to backdoor Shane.

Right now, America is voting for the third nominee.  On twitter, a lot of Jason’s fans are basically either begging or bullying people to vote for Morgan.  But a lot of people have been saying that they’re going to vote for Danielle.  We’ll find out the identity of the third nominee tomorrow.  I kinda hope it’s Danielle because she will absolutely freak out and it should make for good drama!

That’s for now!  I’m happy to be back!

Big Brother Over The Top: Patience…

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 13, 2016

Hi, everyone!

Sorry, this is going to be another quick post.  I’ll be back from vacation next week but until then, I just wanted to give y’all a new post to comment under and also a quick update for anyone who might not be reading the comments:

Last night: Monte was evicted from the house.  Shane, Justin, Jason, and Neely voted for Monte.  Morgan, Shelby, Whitney, and Scott voted for Danielle.  The majority of viewers voted for Monte and Monte was evicted on a 5-4 vote.

Here’s the thing that bothers me about that:

If they’re going to give the viewers as much power as they’ve given them on Big Brother Over The Top, they should have made this an all-star season.  That would have kept things fair.  Instead, we have Jason coming into the house with a huge fan base.  Naturally, every vote is going to benefit Jason in some way.  It’s going to make the game very boring.  It’s a bit like when they let Elissa into the house and all of Rachel’s fans immediately started voting to give her every reward possible.

(A lot of people said this on twitter last night and all of Jason’s fans basically threw a huge hissy fit.)

What particularly frustrates me is that Jason and his alliance are incapable of winning anything on their own.  Instead, they need Jason’s little fan base to carry them through the game.  Last night, after getting rid of Monte, they again failed to win HoH.  Instead, Scott won HoH.

(Good for him, considering the way he was bullied this week!)

Danielle immediately announced that she needed America’s help.  Honestly, Danielle?  Help yourself!

Anyway, it looks like Scott is probably going to nominate Shane and Danielle for eviction … again!  Meanwhile, Jason — who has the most fans and, therefore, is the biggest threat to win the game — will get another free week.

Hopefully, something will change soon because this is getting boring,

Big Brother Over The Top: The Diary Room Is Now Open!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 11, 2016

Hi, everyone!

Just a quick recap:

Alex is HoH.

She nominated Danielle and Shane for eviction.

The viewers voted and Monte was named as the third nominee.

Shane won the veto.

Shane used the veto on himself.  Though Alex had originally named Justin as her backup, she instead nominated Kryssie.  She believes that she can talk Justin into voting to evict Danielle.

So, it is now time to … OPEN UP THE DIARY ROOM!

Do you vote to evict…

DANIELLE, the vain preschool teacher who is not as likable as she thinks she is

MONTE, who is also not as likable as he thinks he is


KRYSSIE, who is even more unlikable than she thinks she is!?

Cast your vote in the poll over on the right side of the page or in the comments below!  If you have a CBS all access account, you can also cast up to 2o votes for who you want to see evicted.  Whoever gets the most votes from “America,” will get one vote cast against him or her on Wednesday.  With the house pretty evenly divided, that one vote could make all the difference.

Jason’s fan — who so far have been dominating the OTT discussion on twitter — seem to be pretty united in voting for Monte.  But, at the same time, I’ve seen a lot of people starting to talk about how much they dislike Danielle.

So, we’ll see!

Lisa Marie

P.S. I voted for Kryssie.


Big Brother Over The Top: Just To Make It Official…

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 10, 2016

…Danielle and Shane are the nominees!

That’s not really a surprise, we all knew that was who Alex was targeting.  The only question now is who will be joining them as the third nominee.  America is currently voting!

I assumed that all of Jason’s fans would be voting for Monte but I just checked on twitter and, while I saw a lot of anti-Monte sentiment, I also saw a lot of people saying that they were going to vote for Scott.  They consider Scott to be a rat who is trying to play both sides of the house and apparently, he said some nasty things about the viewers after they voted to make him a have not.

Quite surprisingly, I’m also seeing a lot of people voting for Kryssie.  Apparently, a lot of Zakiyah fans want Kryssie to be nominated because that will keep Kryssie from voting to keep Danielle in the house.  Apparently, Zakiyah’s fans do not like Danielle.

As we’ve talked about in the comments, the viewers are really getting into the voting.  I guess they might as well, seeing as how they’re having to pay money to watch the show.  But, honestly, a lot of the viewers aren’t as smart as they think they are and eventually, I think all this voting is going to backfire.  Remember when all of Rachel’s fan accidentally nominated Elissa for eviction during Big Brother 15?

One final thing — Kryssie gave Jason immunity but, oddly enough, you can still vote to make Jason the third nominee.  I was pretty sure Jason was guaranteed to be safe this week so someone involved in the production screwed up.  Well, regardless, I went ahead and cast 20 votes for Jason, just because I wanted to make things weird inside the house.

Seriously — if Big Brother is going to give the viewers all this power, they shouldn’t force a bunch of newbies to play with a veteran.  Of course, the veteran is going to win every vote!  He’s starting out with a fanbase.  It’s not exactly fair and it gets kind of boring after a while.

Anyway that’s it for now.  Veto comp is tomorrow!
