Big Brother 20: That’s a wrap!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 26, 2018

Hi y’all!

Well, that’s a wrap.  The 20th season of Big Brother has just come to an end and a new winner has been selected.  Obviously, if you haven’t seen the show yet, this is going to be a spoiler so I’m going to create some spoiler space just in case anyone clicked on this post by accident.

SPOILER

SPOILER

By a vote of 5-4, Kaycee defeated Tyler and won Big Brother 20!  Unlike last year’s narrow victory, Kaycee’s victory wasn’t really a shock.  It was pretty obvious that any jury with Bayleigh and Rockstar on it was going to be a bitter one and Kaycee played a good game without getting anyone mad at her.  Tyler may have played the superior strategic game but he upset a lot of people.  If he had gotten Bayleigh and Rockstar out pre-jury and had managed to keep Winston and Rachel around, he probably would have won.

But, he didn’t.  In the end, Tyler received votes from JC, Brett, Angela, and Haleigh.  Rockstar, Bayleigh, Faysal, and Scottie all went with Kaycee, which was no surprise.  What was surprising was that Sam voted for Kaycee but I guess Tyler’s betrayal hurt her more than most of us realized.  Sam seemed to be the most wounded member of the jury.  I’m still not sure if she really understood what type of game she was playing.

That said, Tyler still won America’s Favorite Player, so he went home with $75,000.  Kaycee won $500,000.

So, what did everyone think of the season?  I enjoyed it.  I got a little bit bored after the jury battleback because, at that point, it was pretty obvious how things were going to play out but still, this was definitely an improvement over season 19!  To be honest, I was hoping Tyler would win but I can’t complain about Kaycee’s victory.

Both Celebrity Big Brother and regular Big Brother will return next year and so will this blog!  Thank you to everyone for reading and commenting, both on here and in the Big Brother Blog Facebook Group.  Coverage of Survivor starts tomorrow at the Reality TV Chat Blog and I hope to see y’all there!

I want to give out some special shout outs!  Thank you to Bill, the BBBlogger, who first invited me to write about Big Brother 6 seasons ago.  This site couldn’t exist without Bill’s hard work behind the scenes.  Thank you to Jeff Taylor, who has do so much this season to help out with the Facebook group!  Thank you to my sister, Erin, who kept an eye on the House when I couldn’t!  And most of you, thank you to all of you!  Thank you so much for making this a wonderful season!  Y’all are the best!  Thank you for letting me be a part of your summer!

Love,

Lisa Marie

It was a great season and I’m happy Kaycee won. Call me slow but I never connected that Lisa Marie Bowman and Erin Bowman were sisters.

Lisa. Thank YOU for spending your summer with us! In fact I wouldn’t even know what summer looked like anymore without BB and this blog!! So glad you and BBBlogger are going to keep the obsession going!!😎
I was rooting for Tyler all the way but it was very close and KC was deserving too. It’s hard to play such a smart, strategic game without ticking off a few people. But Tyler won AFP and Angela and I’m sure he is feeling like he won anyway!! I loved seeing him tear up when he heard he’d won AFP. And then Angela asked him to move in with her during the BY interviews and he said YES!! I don’t think he has any regrets.
Best season of BB ever. Hands down. And three showmsnces!! One an engagement!! What??!! Lol
I hope CBS has learned their lessons and starts from scratch with HGS from now on. No more Vets!! Unless it’s an All Stars.
I’m really missing BBAD right now. Lol😕

I’m such a nite owl and having BBAD is so nice. I’m up anyway and the rest of the channels have mostly news or infomercials. I may have to run the few I kept!! Lol. It start recording movies. I hate this withdrawal time. It’s tough being an addict. Lol. I need to start going back on FB now. I’ve been pretty MIA all summer because of BB. so hope to see you there. I’ll prolly keep checking in here for awhile too. lol 😏

12:15pm CST on a Wednesday night / Thursday morning… and here I sit watching all the live Ross & Marissa interviews like I have Thursday off!! LOL

Scottie did confirm what I wrote on FB that if Kaycee won part 3 she would gain more credit. Scottie said he was planning to vote for Ty until then

Swaggy said he would have voted for Ty… Bay was not happy to hear that. LOL. Rachel & Angela made up and friends again… and Rachel said she would have voted for Kaycee. Winston said he would vote Ty

Great finale… I did feel Ty deserved it a bit over Kaycee… but it was so close!! And those my 2 faves so not upset at all
If someone told me week 1 that Kaycee would win… I would have taken that result in a heartbeat!!

Sam said what Tyler did has no influence on her vote.. she said she always played a personal game and it basically came down to Kaycee’s outside life vs Tyler’s. Sam had made up her mind to vote for Kaycee long ago… if Kaycee was F2

GLAD Ty got AFP!!! I thought F2 couldn’t get that… or maybe they changed it for this situation. They do like to make up things as they go along. LOL

Thanks for all the hard work this season Lisa… both here and on Facebook.

JT…..Earlier in the season I heard an interview with Allison Grodner and she was asked the question if the F2 would be eligible for AFP and she said yes. She said it has always been so but in the past none of the F2 were voted AFP.

And YES!! Thanks to Erin too for all the daytime updates on the FB group…. and the hilarious gifs.

And thanks to all readers and commenters here and on FB group. I had SOOO much fun on this blog when I first found it in 2009 for BB11. I was OBSESSED with this place!! Met so many good friends that are still great friends to this day that I chat with daily. In 2009 there was no place I’d rather be during the day or night than right HERE!! LOL

And over the next several seasons I gradually lost interest. Many friends moved on from here… and the BB seasons weren’t as good IMO. Plus I worked so much OT in many seasons that I could barely even keep up with CBS episodes… so was always out of the loop or days behind.

BUT this year… so much fun!! I was totally re-energized about BB from all the great comments and chats I had here and on Facebook page…. so justa thanks to all for that!!

Thank you Lisa. I feel the same way you do. I loved the season. After the ultra boring one last year and the poor ones for a couple of years, this show was refreshing. I didn’t know until the very end last night what was going to happen. Loved it. I think the right choice was made and honestly I don’t know if Tyler would have taken Kaycee to the final 2. I think so but I’m not sure with him. I enjoyed the season and it keeps me wanting to keep coming back. Thank you guys for everything and for the write ups and the conversation. I think Swaggy should not have asked Baleigh to marry him on the show. It was an upstage but that’s how both of them are. Sorry but they were 2 I really did not like. How can you love someone that much in just a couple of weeks? Be serious.

Great job as always Lisa. and I agree .. I was hoping Tyler would win it too but not upset that Kaycee did. Wondered if when he seem to break down a bit if it was because he was so touched and surprised that he won AFP or if it was disappointment at losing the big prize.

I feel that Tyler was robbed in favor of the social aspect of the game. Andy Herren and Dan Gheesling both feel that Tyler should have won for his scheming and strategizing. They’re not happy that BB appears to have morphed into a social experiment boiled down to popularity. I think the guys were jealous of Tyler and the women were jealous of Angela which ended up being the underlying reason for the end result. Granted, KC is a sweet girl with a great social game and proved to be a comp beast, but Tyler worked much harder and for much of the game carried her along. I’m so happy that Tyler knows that America loves him.

I don’t do Facebook and never will so I’m missing half of the party and that’s my loss. I am so grateful for Lisa, bbblogger and every single one of you who contribute to this wonderful obsession that we all share. I’m ecstatic that Lisa will continue on providing us a gathering place where we can come to share our thoughts and feelings. Thank you Lisa.💜

Looking forward to Celebrity BB and BB21 with all of you!!💕💜💕

Star September 27, 2018 at 2:56 pm

Junksies. I totally agree with Andy and Dan and you!! I think Tyler was robbed. For most of the game JC was quiet and not winning comps. It didn’t sound in interviews that it was strategy either. She says she’s not good at mental comps. More physical so she started winning as there were less HGS and more physical comps. Tyler was strategizing from Day1. It seems most of these competition shows have gone popular vote. I watch DWTS and if you have a big fan base you don’t need to be able to dance.
I’m on FB but didn’t go there much. I’ve never liked chats. I much prefer to get my thots out in blogs with people I know. So I don’t think you really missed a lot.
If you want to keep in touch, let me know and I’ll give you my email.
Can’t wait for the next BB!!!😎 🅱️🅱️‼️

I wanted Kaycee to win, and was very happy with the results. But you have to keep in mind the thing about BB is there are many ways to play the game as can be seen by the various types of winners in the past. Dan Gheesling was one of my least favorite winners.
I also do not do Facebook any longer. It took me a good year to rid myself of that parasite. Way too many websites rely upon Facebook for responses, and all it takes is one slip and you are back within it’s grasp and have to start all over again.

I have to say I’m really happy Kaycee won – she didn’t burn bridges like Tyler did – I understand his game was very strategic though, and I would have been okay with him winning, but I just preferred Kaycee to win. I did wonder if he would have taken Kaycee if he was HOH though – part of me thinks he would have broken that deal…
I will miss reading everyone’s comments and am so glad the blog is coming back!

Fun and joyful finale. Either 1 of these 2 could have won and I was fine with it. HOWEVER (LOL) IMHO I did think Tyler played a bit better strategically. Kaycee laid low and kept a great social game, ultimately that’s what won it for her. Tyler however played just as good a social game (I mean look how many ask him to be finale 2) but he could not carry everyone to finale 2. Thing is in his speech he should have reiterated that he didn’t ask these people to go to finale 2, they ask him and then he should have said it would have blown up my game if I told each of you I already had a finale 2. He should have said he was loyal to his original finale 2. I think that would have saved him with Sam.
Also what the heck was CBS thinking allowing Swaggy to pull the stunt he pulled??? How do they know he didn’t whisper in Bees ear don’t vote for Tyler? Of course he said in the interview he would have voted for Tyler (it’s called covering you a** ). I really got the impression she was going to vote for Tyler (how many times in pre interviews did we hear her talk about what a smart game he was playing?). I was shocked she voted for Kaycee. Her and Kaysee rarely talked prior to eviction.
I did notice how Kaycee always comforted most all the guest prior to eviction vote (I believe that’s called the Judas kiss or the kiss of death.).lol
Sorry for being so long in the tooth, this is my finale comment for the season and I just love BB. Looking so forward to next season. Please no more Omarosas though.
Love all you guys that contributed and kept us informed especially on live feeds. I just can’t do the endless hours anymore. Mentally drains me.
Until next season and praying Lisa Marie has a change of heart and continues the blog. She is the best at this, and has such a strong support group behind her. If not, tha k you Lisa Marie for being so dedicated all these years. You’re a legend and in my opinion a should be considered as a honorary BB member/winner!💰💸💲⭐🏆🎉🎉🎉♥️♥️♥️

Wow! This is the first season I have ever called it 100% right!! 🙂 I wanted Kaycee and Tyler to make it to the final two…get rid of JC. And the jury, again, what I figured. No one on the jury disliked Kaycee, BUT, they had problems with Tyler. YAAAYYYYY
Anyways, enough patting on my back. I’m really glad Kaycee won, I am happy that Tyler won second and the fan favorite, But most of all, I am so happy JC was sitting on the sidelines.

Thank you Lisa, Erin and BBBlogger for being there for us during this really good season. Thanks for everyone on the blog for making this the best place to be for our addiction.
I would have rather Tyler won but it’s ok KC did win. One reason I think he should have won was this is a game and I thought it was about game play. If it was just about a social game it would have been different. Tyler played from day one and he didn’t sit back and wait for certain places to start playing.
I will miss the game and all of you fellow fans. You are the best!!

I thought allowing Swaggie to propose to Bayleigh was absolutely wrong!!! Could he have told her to vote for Kaycee! I don’t think any non-jury member should be allowed to talk to any jury member until after they vote!
