Big Brother 20: Well, that was a let down…

Hi y’all!

Well, here’s the good news (or the bad news, depending on who you’re supporting in the game):

They had the veto ceremony earlier today.  Angela used the veto on Tyler and then nominated Bayleigh as the replacement.  We all knew that was going to happen.  It does sound like there were some fireworks at the ceremony.  Angela did accuse Bayleigh of being the hacker and apparently, Tyler dared Bayleigh to “take away his vote.”  Bayleigh says that Tyler yelled at her but, considering how Bayleigh exaggerates things, that doesn’t mean that Tyler actually did yell.  We’ll find out for sure on Wednesday.

So, as it stands now, Bayleigh and Rockstar are on the block and it seems pretty certain that Bayleigh will be voted out of the house and into the jury on Thursday.

The bad news, for feed watchers, is that all this hasn’t quite led to the fireworks that we were all expecting.  Oh, don’t get me wrong.  Bayleigh’s mad.  She told Haleigh that she wants to leave because she’s sick of being around “all of you crazy white people.”  Bayleigh snapped at Kaycee for crying after the ceremony and she’s also been complaining that this would never have happened if not for Rockstar.

Why is she blaming Rockstar?  Apparently, Bayleigh thinks that she’s been nominated because she was campaigning for Rockstar to stay over Tyler.  It doesn’t seem to have occurred to her that she was nominated because she has a huge power and she’s been rude to almost everyone in the house.  It’s interesting that Bayleigh somehow always managed to blame everything on either Rockstar or Scottie.

(Earlier, Bayleigh said that she wasn’t the hacker but she’s pretty sure that Scottie is.)

So, yes, Bayleigh is upset about it.  But she hasn’t been yelling at people.  She hasn’t been banging pots and pans.  She hasn’t been blowing up anyone’s game or anything like that.  Instead, she’s just been kinda glaring at people and complaining to Haleigh.

That doesn’t mean that we won’t get a blow up at some point during this week.  In fact, I imagine that we will.  But right now, considering that she’s being backdoored, Bayleigh is being rather lowkey about it.  She’s even been packing her bags, which would seem to suggest that she doesn’t think she has much of a chance to stay.  My guess is that Bayleigh’s in shock right now but I really can’t imagine that she won’t try to fight to stay in the house between now and eviction night.

Believe it or not, if anyone’s really improved their position in the house this week, it’s probably Rockstar.  She’s been handling her baking and exercising punishment with a lot more good humor than I think anyone was expecting.  As we learned when Paulie had a mental collapse over having to do a punishment during BB18, the smartest thing you can do while being punished in the Big Brother House is to have a decent attitude about it.  Whether this will really help Rockstar get further in the game or not, I don’t know.  But it’s certainly an improvement when compared to two weeks ago, when Rockstar wouldn’t stop yelling about her daughter’s birthday.

Brett was also been punished by visits from Granny.  The feeds go down whenever Granny shows up but apparently, Brett quickly got sick of her and, at one point, even asked her if she was going to die anytime soon.  From what people have been saying, it sounds like everyone got annoyed with Granny pretty quickly.  It sounds more like a punishment for the entire house than just Brett.  (Like the veto ceremony, Granny is something we’ll see on Wednesday.)

And that’s the state of the house for now!
