Big Brother 20: What’s Happening…

Hi y’all!

Well, the 2nd eviction of the season is coming up.  Right now, the two nominees are Winston and Chris.  I can see reasons for voting for either one of the.  Let’s consider each candidate:

Winston

  1. Winston seems like he’ll be good in challenges.
  2. Winston is probably smarter than he comes across.
  3. Winston is determined to win the game.
  4. Winston has some very loyal allies in the house.  Voting him out would probably break out Level 6 and it would also neutralize Brett as a player.
  5. Winston holds a grudge, which means that he’s not going to forget the fact that he was not only nominated this week but that Tyler also used the veto on someone else.

Chris

  1. Chris won the first challenge in the house.
  2. Chris told everyone that he ‘s smarter than he comes across.
  3. Chris is determined to win the game.
  4. Chris has some very loyal allies in the house.  Voting him out would hasten the break-up of his current alliance and it would also neutralize Bayleigh as a player.
  5. Chris holds a grudge, which means that he’s not going to forget the fact that Kaitlyn lied to him and is now trying to backdoor him.

There’s a case to be made for voting for either one of them, largely because Chris and Winston both have the same strengths and the same weaknesses.  That said, I think Winston is in a far better position than Chris right now.

For all of his bluster and all that “Swaggy C’ nonsense, Chris is handling being on the block fairly well.  I would say that he’s handling it better than Winston.  (Winston is still complaining about the fact that, after the nomination ceremony, some people hugged Scottie before they hugged him.)  Chris has been campaigning and telling people the story of his life.  Apparently, if Chris doesn’t make it to jury, there’s a chance that he’ll be shot as soon as he returns home.  He’s really laying on the guilt but I really don’t think it’s going to do him any good.

Here are Chris’s problems:

  1. Tyler wants him out and, as of right now, Tyler pretty much gets whatever he wants.
  2. Trying to use Faysal to change Kaitlyn’s mind is pointless because Kaitlyn thinks that Chris wants Faysal to get together with Haleigh.
  3. Chris has been making the mistake of telling everyone that he and Bayleigh are in a showmance.  Everyone knows that you don’t miss the opportunity to break up a showmance.
  4. Chris alienated a lot of potential allies during the first week.  Instead of trying to bring the few independent houseguests — like Sam and Scottie — over into his alliance, he pretty much ignored them and now, he’s paying the price.  For all of his attempts to flip Sam, she’s not going to forget that Chris tried to get her evicted.  Meanwhile, Scottie is upset because Chris has never included him in any plans.  With Level 6 set to evict him, it’s hard to see how Chris is going to be able to get the numbers to stay.

In other words, Chris is campaigning hard but I think he’s a goner.

We’ll see if I’m right on Thursday!
