Big Brother 20: Sam Has The Power

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 1, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, you probably already know all of this if you’ve been reading the comments below the previous post or if you’ve been checking in with the Big Brother Blog Facebook Page but let’s just make it official:

They had the veto meeting earlier today.  Faysal did not use the power of veto.  Sam and Steve are still on the block and everyone appears to be planning on voting out Sam.  That could change, of course.  Neither Sam nor Steve are really fitting in with the other HGs.  Sam’s been stuck in robot form and Steve just doesn’t seem to have much in common with the other HGs, other than maybe Scottie.  (Scottie and Steve are both are into movies.)  So, it looks like the plan is to vote out Sam…

However, the joke is on them!  As we saw on tonight’s episode, Sam received the Power App!  Even if everyone in the house votes for her, Sam is not going to leave the game.  Basically, for the first three weeks, Sam has the power to bring back any evicted houseguest.  If she doesn’t use the power within the first three weeks then whoever is voted out during the fourth week will automatically return.

So, basically, one of the first four evicted houseguests will turn around and immediately reeneter the house.  It’s just up to Sam to determine who.  And right now, it definitely looks like it will be her.

Otherwise, tonight’s episode was mostly filler.  We got to see the start of Chris’s showmance with Bayleigh and we also saw how Winston, Brett, and Scottie all become have nots (they volunteered).  This season’s Have Not room doesn’t look that bad and, on the live feeds, Winston and Brett have been talking about how easy it is to sleep in there.  (That’s fine by me.  I’ve never really been a huge fan of the whole Have Not thing.)  We won’t be seeing the veto competition until Wednesday and then the first eviction will be on Thursday.

Earlier today, there was some fun on the live feeds when Faysal couldn’t find the veto necklace.  He’s been wearing it nonstop ever since he won it and last night, Kaitlyn hid it from him.  When Faysal woke up and couldn’t find it, he went into total panic mode.  He was convinced that the veto had been stolen by “America’s player” or a saboteur.  He even wondered if he could still use the veto power if he didn’t have the necklace.  The producers apparently took some sympathy on him because, after Kaitlyn was called to the diary room, the veto was returned to Faysal.

That’s it for now!  I can’t wait to see the veto comp on Wednesday because, supposedly, it was intense!  And, with everyone apparently planning on voting to evict Sam, I can’t wait to see their faces when she turns around and reeneters the house.

We’ll see what happens!

It seems Sam will have to use her power, but I hope not.
As I said on previous page.. I think it would be interesting if it’s not used by week 3 or 4 and to see how that plays into strategy.
Last thing you’d want is to have it unused by week 4.. just to have an enemy get to come back in the game

I was pretty bored with tonight’s show. Shaggy/Swaggy/Chris is getting way too cocky. Sam is crying too much. I can only imagine if they all vote her out she’s going to be in tears again because what an awful feeling to have so many vote you out. I like Faysal and it seems most don’t really care for him and to get least trended. With all heartless stuff happening in the world, I’m drawn to somebody like Faysal. I’m sure the show will get more interesting come the new HOH comp.

I didn’t like Swaggy from the first time he started talking in third person. That just really turns me off. And Sam – my heart breaks for Sam.

Oh wait…. One IMPORTANT word I overlooked during tonight’s episode was “CHANCE”
Sam’s app said a “chance to return”
so… just as I thought we got all answers.. another question arises.

Sounds to me that she will have a chance to fight her way back, does it to you?

I was thinking the chance referred to her choice to come back or not. So confusing but leave it to BB to have a hidden agenda or a loophole to twist in the direction they want.

The only thing I enjoyed about tonight’s show was Sam getting the advantage! The rest of the show was blah! I did, however enjoy seeing Swaggy shocked that he didn’t win Most Trending! 😊. Maybe he stayed in the App Room so long because he thought they might change their mind??? I will be glad when the show gets back on track!! I still like Tyler! I honestly think he has a big heart, and his comments in the Diary Room was an attempt to downplay his emotions! Just my opinion! I liked the way he treated Sam/Robot in the storeroom!

I did enjoy seeing Sam smile again, Jolee. I agree that the show was actually slow and kinda blah. I still like Tyler and definitely don’t like Swaggy and his annoying name.

I’m totally enjoying everybody’s comments.

I’m confused about this whole trending thing. I spend a lot of time on Twitter so I was assuming that the guests are really going to be trending. I’ve not seen one person trending. The exception is BB20 debut night was trending for about 6 hours straight at #1❗After reading everybody’s comments I guess the trending is related to the vote and BB App store and has nothing to do with Twitter? Duh. Still confused. When the guests talk about trending they also think they’re on Twitter right? There’s a lot of talk about Sam on Twitter but her name hasn’t been trending that I’ve seen. Confused.

Why in the world would Faysal, being Muslim, pick Hamazon?

Hi, Junksies! The trending thing confused me too but yes, it turns out that twitter doesn’t factor into whether a HG is considered to be trending. I think, because Sam won the first power, she won’t be eligible to win anymore. That’s probably why she’s not trending right now. I don’t know how long this technology twist will continue. If I remember correctly, they abandoned the Den of Temptation after 4 or 5 weeks.

So sick of the conceited and overly convinced Swaggy C. He is a mess.

I feel sorry for Sam having a hard time connecting with people, but it really doesn’t help her crying so much! I agree with all of you that said that. I so love her tho’ I think she’s adorable and sweet, maybe just a little bit too naive and not thick skinned enough. Chris “Swaggy C” is driving me absolutely nuts, he makes my skin crawl with his speaking in the third person and being so cocky all the time! Someone needs to knock him off of that pedestal he’s placed himself so high on! He sure stuck to his guns on the ‘no showman ever” what did that last (?) 5 seconds?! Has he seen the show? He should know America doesn’t like cocky, third person talking idiots who walk around acting like they think they’re running the place! A great example of that is the one none of us want to see on there again and that’s “YOUR BOY PAUL!”

OY VEY!!
LOL 😂 I DO LOVE BIG BROTHER!!!
💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕💕

PS. Can anyone tell me how to add a pic to my ‘avitar’ I haven’t been able to get it in there. Thanks a bunch! If there’s anyway to DM me please do. Idk how, but if you do I’d be pleased as punch!!

I feel the same way about Sam. She’s adorable, but nobody likes a whiner. You’d think she’d have more spunk than that, being a lady welder. That can’t have been a cakewalk to get into. I hope she moves past this, gets back in the game, and brings her A game.

Third-person Swaggy is driving me nuts, too! He had to hang in the App room to process not winning because his narcissism had some rationalizing to do. I liked when Bayleigh called him out on coming up with his own nickname!

Hey Erin, thanks so much for helping me out on here! I’m still learning! I just now discovered this list where I could go and see all my replies and things people have said to me that I’ve never seen (all together) before!
Wish there was a “DISQUS FOR DUMMIES” e-book out there! I’d be all over it! Haha 😂 You’d sure never know I used to program computers for a living, would you?! That’s just too funny!! Of course that’s been 30 years ago now (OMG, I hadn’t realized how long it’d been till I just now thought about it! Holy Moly)!
Anyway, thank you again!

Finally figured out how to get back into the blog with the new Disqus system! I am just so relieved that there are no former houseguests on this summer’s show – but I will really be mad if Sam (or whoever) has to battle against a veteran! I wonder if BB will completely explain what her power is (or is not)?? ~ JuJu
