Big Brother 20: The Latest Power APP

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 8, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, as was finally revealed last night, the power of veto was won by Tyler.  So, the plan right now is for Tyler to use the power to save Scottie and then Kaitlyn will nominate Chris as a replacement.  Kaitlyn ws doing a pretty good job of tricking everyone in her former alliance into thinking that her actual target was Angela but, as of today, she’s told Faysal and Haliegh that Chris is real target.  And Haleigh, of course, ran off and told Angie.

I guess Kaitlyn is trying to do some preemptive damage control but it’s all backfiring on her.  Even though she told Haleigh that she managed to get Winston and Brett to agree not to nominate Haleigh and Angie in return for Kaitlyn backdooring Chris, Haleigh and Angie are both furious about Kaitlyn’s plan.  (As well, Kaitlyn is lying about getting safety for either of them.)  Haleigh and Angie are both convinced that Tyler is the one pushing Kaitlyn to go after Chris and both of them are adamant that, if they win the next HoH, they’re coming after Tyler.

Speaking of Tyler, he did indeed win this week’s Power APP.  On tonight’s episode, we found out what exactly he got.  He selected The Cloud.  If he plays the app before a nomination or a veto ceremony, he will be safe during that ceremony.  It’s good for 8 weeks.  It sounds like a bigger deal than it actually is.  It’s only good for one time and it has to be played before the ceremony.

So, if Tyler is nominated, he can’t suddenly use the power to take himself off the block.  And if Tyler gets paranoid, he could actually waste the power by using it at a time when no one’s planning on nominating him.  It’s a bit like a Big Brother version of a Survivor immunity idol.  It has the ability to be helpful but you have to be careful how you play it.

One thing I’m not sure about is whether the immunity would cover the entire week or just that ceremony.  For instance, if Tyler played his power before a nomination ceremony, could he still be nominated as a replacement after the veto competition?  I’m not sure.

(Honestly, out of the choices that Tyler had, I probably would have picked either Upgrade or Redraw.  The Cloud had a nice graphic of a guy sitting on a cloud but really, it’s not as big a deal as it seems.)

As for the rest of the house, Kaitlyn is really enjoying be HoH.  She’s even walking around in her HoH robe.  She’s letting everyone know that she’s the most powerful person in the house, though she’s actually destroying her game.  Her old alliance wants nothing to do with her.  Meanwhile, Winston is mad that the plan is to veto Scottie instead of him.  (Kaitlyn thinks that using the veto on Winston will make it too obvious that she’s working with Level 6 to take out Chris.  But now that she’s told the other side of the house that she’s working with Level 6 to take out Chris, I’m not sure what she thinks she’s trying to hide.)  When Kaitlyn’s HoH reign finally ends, I imagine she’s going to be in for a rude awakening as far as her position in the house is concerned.

As always, we’ll see what happens!

Lisa Marie

P.S. Earlier today, Kaitlyn also demanded that Faysal apologize to her.  Apparently, she had a dream in which he was rude to her.

Am I the only one who thought tonight’s episode was so boring? I think this season is a big disappointment! It’s not the Big Brother I’m used to! The whole HOH is so not how it was intended! Everyone except the HOH is using the HOH room! How about the HOH room being for the HOH. You are only allowed in there if invited! If you want to see the HOH, how about knocking on the door?? I am really wondering if Big Brother will ever go back to the original format! I sure hope so! I still am a Tyler and Sam fan! I can’t seem to connect with anyone else! I was very surprised that Rachel got the Crap App. I could think of several people I would have voted for!
Goodnight everyone! 💕

LMAO… apologizing for someone’s dream?
Good question about if Tyler’s power would save him for the whole week or just one ceremony (either Noms or POV)

I would think if he plays his power at a Nom ceremony.. then it would cover that week and include replacement. But that’s just a guess.. IDK. That seems to make the most sense.

I’ve been thinking about Sam’s power… and if there will be a typical battle back this season. I’m leaning towards “no”. Here’s why,

1) If they had a typical, first 4 out, battle back, then that would be like all 4 of them won the +1 Life app…. right? That wouldn’t make sense with these apps as prizes.

2) I also don’t think Sam will battle 1 vs 1 against another evicted HG (Margie asked me that on previous page). Pretty much the same reason. Let’s say Sam is evicted next week… then ends up battling Saggy for example…. wouldn’t that negate the advantage of winning the app?? …if Saggy also had that chance?? Doesn’t make sense.

The ONLY things that make sense for Sam’s power is that either she has to battle a “House Champion” ….or battle someone not in the house like a returning vet… or just simply do some sort of game of chance… draw an envelope or take a shot at something.. throw a dart.. putt a ball… etc.

Someone WILL get that chance. Either Sam.. or someone she chooses before week 4… or whoever is evicted week 4. It DOES NOT say all of them will get that chance… so that HAS to rule out a first 4 battle back.

But I still reserve my right to be wrong!! BB does not always make sense.

JT. I never got the feeling there was a Battle Back. It says she has a chance to stay, which could mean anything. But I did think it was for a one and done kinda thing. Whether for her or whoever she gives it too. Again, more Survivor like. Did it say it must or will be used by week 4? Whether she chooses to or not? Or can it just be wasted and go unused? Can’t remember the wording now.

Star if Sam doesn’t use it by the 4th week it will automatically be played then.

Why is it these people can’t keep a secret??? Are they so bored and trying to find something to do.. and they just start talking and spill it all? Anyone who is a fan of the show knows that the winners have been people who could keep either their identity a secret (Derrick) or their plans (Dan Geesling) a secret! Kaitlin just blew it all by telling her plans – Saying “Don’t tell anyone” doesn’t work! ~ JuJu

I really think people are getting worse at keeping secrets. Everyone runs to Twitter or FB every time they have a thot! No matter how minuscule or private or disgusting. They just put everything out there trying to get likes !
I think that’s what they are doing. By blabbing any exciting information or gossip that’s new, the are trying to get people to “like” them. Remember this is the techie generation. They aren’t used to going 5 minutes without texting or tweeting. And they’ve had their phones taken away. They don’t know how to act around others without using their thumbs. Lol. Tyler us the only one who can keep things to himself. And obviously knows the game and has studied the best players. I really can’t see anyone else I think can make it all the way right now besides him.

Kaitlin’s big mouth has probably insured Chris will know he’s the target. She hasn’t got a clue about this game and Tyler has a huge job ahead trying to control her till eviction night.

My only concern this week is to get rid of Chris. As long as that happens, let the rest of things fall where they may.
I am so sick of him referring to himself in the third person, I hope when he is finally tossed out and reads all the negative comments, the people who know him…well, I won’t talk about that

Oh my gosh…. yesterday I read that Rockstar said that someone was “too white” (I can’t remember who) and I just now read she made another off the wall statement just now! At 9:47 AM PT…… Rockstar & Haleigh in hammock. Haleigh says that Kaitlyn says she’s upset with Swaggy because he started things so early. Rockstar replies, “He didn’t start everything so early, he was just black.” What? ? ?

That statement doesn’t bother me. I’ve heard it from yrs when my sister used to suntan all the time….I did too but stopped when I didn’t look good in a bikini. Back when we felt we had to be tan to wear dresses and show bare legs. My oldest daughter is white on white ( her hubby biracial) but when she’s I’ll shes too white so we know she’s ill. I taught her though to avoid getting tanned because she’s beautiful as she is and the sun will age her. Though her sister tans easily, I never let them tan growing up but once adult they do what they want. I used to tan til I cooked. I don’t know how I did it. Now I’m like a vampire. I know I’ve heard it meaning a person looks healthier with some color.

I can’t belueve they went thru with it!! I’m still a little shocked Tyler took Scot down. I hope they are sure about the votes for Eindton. Did I think Kat had to go thru with it. She’d told too many people. And I think she likes Tyler and also wants to be on his alliance so she was stuck in her own bravado.

I was watching on Flashback this morning and heard a conversation with Chris, Fez and Scottie where Chris is PO’d because Hayleigh came to him and told him he needed to have a serious talk with Kaitlin. You know that the next step is she is going to tell him what Kaitlin told her about putting him on the block.

She’s very immature and on the wrong side of people!! But except for Tyler only Katelins old group go up to HOH with her. Doesn’t that tell both of them something? She’s not really going to fit in with L6. And now she’s a liability. I know he’s good at keeping his mouth shut but I hope Tyler hasn’t told her anything that makes them vulnerable because she is going to go crawling right back to Foutte or whatever it is. Lol. That’s why she’s crying. She really didn’t want to do this. Smh
