Big Brother 20: Let’s Count The Votes

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 3, 2018

Hi, y’all!

So, in just two days, we’ll be witnessing the first eviction of BB20.  Right now, the two nominees are Steve and Sam.  As I said before, Steve and Sam have mostly been nominated because neither one of them really fits in with either of the two big alliances in the house.  Steve is older and, as a homicide detective, doesn’t really have much in common with the other houseguests.  Meanwhile, Sam has been stuck in robot form and has spent the majority of the week telling everyone how much it sucks to be a robot.

(Personally, I think Sam has a right to complain but quite a few of the houseguests — like Kaitlyn — have been getting annoyed with her.)

Steve is pretty confident that he has the votes necessary to stay.  In fact, he’s been relaxing and laying low and letting everyone know how much he appreciates them for not voting him out.  Sam, meanwhile, is convinced that she’s going to be voted out but she also has the power that will the give her a chance to reeneter the house.

The truth is a bit more complicated.

For the most part, Sam is being targeted by Chris’s alliance.  As of right now, Chris, Bayleigh, Haleigh, Angie, Faysal, and Kaitlin appear to be planning on voting out Sam.  Even though he’s not really a member of any alliance, Scottie is close to Steve and he will undoubtedly vote to evict Sam as well.

Then you have Winston’s alliance.  Though they’ve done a pretty good job of keeping the word from getting out, they are determined to get Steve out of the house.  So, Winston, Brett, Angela, JC, Kaycee, and Rachel are all planning on voting out Steve and then trying to pull Scottie over to their side of the house.  Tyler has also come around to wanting Steve out but, as HoH, he doesn’t get a vote.

So, that breaks down to a 7-6 vote to evict Sam.

HOWEVER — and this is where it gets interesting — both Angie and Haleigh have been discussing maybe voting to evict Steve.  They’re apparently convinced that almost everyone is voting to evict Sam so they feel that if they cast two votes for Steve, they can then trick people into thinking those votes were cast by Winston and Brett.  What they don’t seem to get is that Winston and Brett are both already planning on voting to evict Steve.  So, if Haleigh and Angie actually go through with their plan, Steve would be evicted on an 9-4 vote.

And then there’s Kaitlyn.  Kaitlyn has been a loyal member of Chris’s alliance, largely because she likes Faysal.  However, Faysal seems to be more into Haleigh than he is into Kaitlyn and Kaitlyn is not happy about this.  So, Winston and Brett are thinking that they might be able to get Kaitlyn to flip.  Of course, the problem with this plan is that Kaitlyn is still mad at Sam because Sam said that, if Kaitlyn was a robot, she wouldn’t be able to spend all of her time in the hot tub with Faysal.

Got all that?  If it sounds confusing, don’t worry.  I typed all of that up and I’m still struggling to keep it all straight.  As of right now, it seems like anything could happen on Thursday!

All the comments here are great! Whew..sums it up nicely,!

I like Tyler. I don’t think Faysal is to smart..
I felt really bad for Sam..but she whined to much. She should have played it differently and she would have won everyone over.

Yikes! Do you, Lisa, have a life outside of BB yourself?? I’m trying to imagine the hours and hours of watching BB to absorb all this information.
I really am hoping Steve is the one to go. He, from the start, has been a bit too arrogant for my tastes. His, “I’m an undercover cop” got old pretty quick.

They really do repeat themselves a lot on the live feeds so you don’t have to watch a lot to pick it all up. : )

You’d be surprised what key info can be picked up with relatively little feed / BBAD viewing time. Seems to me they talk abot the same things over and over.. so if I tune in for just a bit, I am almost certain to hear some of this stuff. LOL

I did see that Kaycee & Rachel planned on working on Kaitlyn as well. And also to keep up the charade that Steve is safe (and therefore tossing Sam a vote wouldn’t matter), Winston & Brett were going to hang out with Steve a bit more.
One other part of the grand scheme is for JC to feed some bad info to Angie / Rocklobster. Because they know she will tell the other side. He will tell her that he believes people from Winston’s side are voting to evict Sam.

I watching flashback this afternoon and I happened on a conversation between Tyler and Kaitlin. He was really giving her the hard sell to switch votes to vote out Steve without giving away that he is on the other team. I think he has her pretty convinced. That boy is smooth and he is really playing the game! He is definitely my favorite right now. Especially since Chris and Bayleigh stirred up controversy between Hadleigh and Kaitlin.

Thanks Lisa. Great synopsis. I too am a bit annoyed with Sam. I think she’s playing the sympathy card. Both penalties lead to the ladies being somewhat left out. I do think she should stay though. Her fiesty attitude will be entertaining going forward. Steve is blah.

I’m behind on BBAD. But I was reading Jokers to fill in and they were saying that Rachel had been crying and she’d gotten
Called in to see AG… who I’m assuming is Ally G….. and looks like she’d gotten in trouble. Anyone know about this?
And what us the entire other side of the house… and yes I know Tyler is neural supposedly.. all doing in the HOH?? I mean not just hanging out. Looks like all their clothes are up there and they’re taking baths and the BR is a mess!! Remember the good old days when the HOH had to let you in IF they wanted to? And carried the key around with them. I
Miss those days. Sigh. Lol
Also games were only given out like in the F6 maybe? The Bros have been playing Jenga every nite. And theirs foosball!! What happened to this game being hard and restricting HGS to just talking to each other??🤔🤗

Yesterday, Rachel and Angela were tanning. Rachel commented that if her skin got any darker, she would have to “change ethnicities.” Angela then said that if they got any more tan they would be “ghetto.” Today, TMZ did a story about they said. I imagine they probably called Rachel and Angela into the diary room and reminded them that everyone can see and hear what they’re doing and saying in the house. That’s just my guess.

I’m sure your guess is correct.

I was busy all day and didn’t get on Twitter much until this evening where I see about 25% of the comments are about Rachel and Angela being racist. Before they were reprimanded nobody was really commenting on it. I didn’t see the original comment while sunbathing but last night Rachel repeated it to Tyler on bbad and honestly the comment rolled right off my back. I didn’t see what the offense was. I know I’ll take some heat for saying this but I feel that nowadays people are way too sensitive and so easily offended. Maybe I would feel differently if I was a person of color. Plus it seems like it took a long time for CBS / BB to discipline the girls and then TMZ to pick up on it. Makes me wonder if BB is nitpicking in order to stir up controversy for ratings. I hear that Chris keeps using the word “nigga” while talking to Baliegh but has he been reprimanded for that?

Hello everyone! I love seeing all of the familiar faces today! I agree with most of your comments! 😊💕🙏💕
I am also a Tyler fan! 💕 I hope he doesn’t disappoint me! I think the main reason I am on Sam’s side is because she got the worst punishment in BB history, in my opinion! I would hope I would take a different approach to the way I expressed my disappointment, and not play the sympathy card! I just hope she makes it through the first eviction so she has a chance to show who she is! Then, as far as I’m concerned, it’s up to her!
It has been a busy day for us! Company in and out of the house all day long! One of Jeanne’s daughters and granddaughter are spending the night! So, we got to watch “Leap” on Netflix! It was cute.! 😊
I am totally worn out, but I had to drop by to check on everyone! Love you all! 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
Goodnight!

I wonder if the next app choices will be the same as the one’s Sam got to choose from? If she gets evicted do y’all think she might get to automatically come back if no one else chooses what she chose in the next 2 weeks? But if someone chooses they same app choice and gets evicted then that would cause a battle back situation? Just trying to figure out the possible scenarios! ~ JuJu

When Sam is in her robot and is off the set somewhere I wonder if it feels like solitary confinement? Is she stuck in a tiny control booth somewhere? She can’t be allowed to interact with production… And I don’t understand going to the storeroom and asking for people to come to her…. I think I might feel sorry for myself as well… but then I think about how Paul or some of the previous houseguests would have handled it and I think Paul would have zoomed all over the house and had fun with it! ~JuJu

I’d have a BLAST if I was that robot. It would suck to be somewhat isolated.. but I’d be wheelin’ all over even more than Christmas did!! LOL. Sam has been better about that lately. She did chase Tyler around which was amusing. And the little perv even took a ride on the robot

This morning they still have Sam in robot mode which seems very unfair on the last day she has to campaign for her life in the game. I really hope they pull off getting Steve out because he is so cocky. He thinks the only one voting against him is Angela and threatens to wreak havoc on Winston, Brett any anyone else that dares to defy him and vote for Sam to stay. I don’t know why he thinks he’ll be able to do that because he doesn’t seem all that smart or influential to me. I sure hope someone on the side of the house that doesn’t include Faz, Chris or Bayleigh wins HOH or that Sam’s power does allow her to stay.

We need to vote Chris to get the Crap App because he says he’s sure he’s going to get the power because America loves him!

Someone please let me know when and where to vote. I couldn’t find it last time.

Oh NO!!!! Winston is convincing Ashley to change her vote and vote to keep Steve. I wish we knew how this power of Sam’s is going to work.
