Celebrity Big Brother: Another Wasted HoH

by Lisa Marie Bowman on February 20, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, last night’s episode was kind of a bust.

It turned out that it didn’t matter who Omarosa was targeting.

It didn’t matter who the house wanted out.  It didn’t matter which veto you voted for.  (The veto that received the most votes was the VIP Veto, which would have given the veto holder the option to use it twice.)

Ross won the veto and took himself off the block.  Since he probably would have used the veto again to save Marissa if she had been nominated, that meant that his alliance was safe.  Since Omarosa’s plan has always been to split up the pairs, it would have made sense for her to put Ari up as a replacement and then everyone could vote out Brandi.  But again, none of that mattered.

It didn’t matter because Metta decided he wanted to go home.

And so, Omarosa nominated Metta for eviction.  Brandi thanked Metta for wanting to go home.  Everyone voted to evict Metta.  Metta left the house.

So, the end result of Omarosa’s HoH was that she nominated her only ally for eviction and he got voted out.

For the most part, I’m enjoying Celebrity Big Brother but it really drives me crazy when people ask to be voted out of the house.  First Keshia and then Metta.  Do they not explain how the game works to these people before they enter the house?

And really, if Metta wanted to leave, he could just leave.  It’s not like there are armed guards standing outside the front door.  If you want to go, GO!  Don’t waste someone else’s HoH.  It’s just frustrating because the majority of these houseguests really are playing the game but all that strategizing is worthless when players demand to be nominated so they can leave.

Anyway, on the positive side, everyone else in the house actually seems to want to be there.  And, even though there’s only a few days left, there’s still a lot of scheming and strategizing to look forward to.  Wednesday is going to be a double eviction and then, on finale night, three houseguests will be evicted!

As for what’s happening in the house right now — Mark is HoH!  That means that both he and James are safe for a few days.  They are planning on following Omarosa’s strategy of targeting pairs.  Now, to me, it would seem obvious that Ross and Marissa are a more dangerous pair than Brandi and Ari.

But no.  Apparently, Mark is planning on nominating Brandi and Ari later today, with Brandi as his target.  I’m not really sure if those boys are really aware of who is actually dangerous in the house.  James has had it out for Brandi ever since their first night in the house.

As always, we’ll see what happens!

You nailed again, Lisa, as per usual. I think if you ask to be
voted out, it should hold the same repercussions as if you just
left…you lose all recompense for your time there. It seems like
recently BB has seen more wasted HOHs than ever before. Some
were due to bad twists, some to poor strategies, and some because
people wanted to leave. Metta came in knowing nothing about BB
and had taken no time to try to learn about it. I nearly fell off the
couch last night when he stated how smart he was and had degrees
in math and architecture. He certainly didn’t show his intelligence
in the house. Hopefully this week will bring about the eviction of
some people who really need to go.

Great sum up Lisa!

Sherry I agree with you about Metta’s intelligence!! lol I know my jaw dropped to the floor.

The only reason they don’t want to just walk is because they lose all the money they were paid in their contract I believe. Did you notice on the feeds last night they were talking about Metta leaving and they were saying it was the 4th time he got out of the house? They immediately cut the feeds when that was said.

I don’t have the feeds, so I missed that part, Margie. But
the rules have been very flexible for this celeb crew. I have
no idea why he ever consented to be a part of a show that
he wasn’t all that interested in doing in the beginning. I think
someone must have paid him a lot of money to just be on the
show. I guess they bent the rules for him to try to redeem some
of their money.

Lisa, I agree! So FRUSTRATING!!!! That could have been an interesting veto move if played out! I would have preferred the one where the Veto could be played after Omarosa chose a replacement and then the Veto could be played to replace Omarosa’s replacement! Now that would be something to watch!!

I agree with everything being said. I couldn’t believe it when Metta started talking about how much of a competitor he was. I certainly didn’t see it. The only thing I saw was him teaching his kids it’s ok to quit. He should have left before and let Shannon stay, at least she wanted to be there.

I agree. He should have fixed it so Shannon could stay. Guess his intelligence was on vacation. Kinda made me laugh when he was saying hi to everyone he missed and he named a bunch of kids and then he said “ and their motherS” ??? How many mothers? Then to his gf. He looks so young so maybe he started early.

Linda …. I agree. Did you see the conversation where Metta was talking about his 16 year old son staying out as late as he liked and going anywhere he wanted by himself at all hours of the night? He said he doesn’t try to tell his children what to do and how to behave. I’ll bet that’s some spoiled children!

I agree Lisa – waste of time watching this past week.

I believe when these people have seen large amounts of money in their bank accounts – $250,000 is pocket change. At the end of the day – spending time with their loved ones is more important than the money.

Im going to keep who I want to get evicted to my self. They seem to win the power of staying. Geeze

I can’t believe how James is allowing his emotions (especially since he is still talking about Shannon’s emotions ruining her last days) about Brandi to blind him to how benign she is in the game. Taking Brandi out is a complete was of Mark’s HOH because Brandi’s own alliance is NOT loyal to her as evidenced by Ross not using the veto on her last night. Had it been Ari or Hairissa he would have used the veto. Mark, Brandi, and James need to buy a clue. Besides, Brandi’s alliance who know they will sacrifice her I think only Omarosa is aware that Brandi is expendable in her supposed alliance. Poor woman spends most of the time anesthetizing herself. Sadly, I think there’s a very broken person in there. She’s not scheming to win she’s just trying to survive life.

sherry February 20, 2018 at 4:42 pm

I agree that James is thinking more of emotions than game
play, but she has been particularly nasty to him from night
one. She just keeps digging at him every chance she gets. The
way the HOHs have gone, I think he thinks anyone at any
given time could be HOH. He saw how she nearly won a couple
of times. If she should win, she would put him up in a nanosec.
Mark is for protecting James, the only one he feels he can
really trust…as much as one can trust anyone in this game.
But their blindness about Ross could be their down fall. I’m
surprised how no one has picked up on how much a threat
Marissa is. She is worse than Omarosa ever thought about
being.
As for Brandi’s drinking and pill taking…I think she uses a lot
of crutches that are only destroying her. She needs a Betty Ford
Center or some kind of professional help. She can dish it out,
but can’t take it even in small doses. She needs to find out
why that is and how she might get her life back together again.
What she is doing so far isn’t working. Just MHO.

Sherry it’s not that Mark doesn’t see the threat in Ross. They have had a side alliance since Day 1! Mark even told Ross last nite that he was staying with him and thanked him for his friendship. So he is in it to win it with Ross. And who knows. Maybe that is Ross’ real alliance and the rest have just been there so he has numbers! I’m not so sure he trusts Marisa all that much.

Susan…. I totally agree with you about Brandi. She’s kind of pitiful IMHO. I don’t think James wants Brandi out because he doesn’t like her I think he knows it’s better to take Omarosa to the end because she will not get one vote.

You are right Margie! No one likes or trusts Omarosa… but they know it is an easier win if she is taken to the end! But I wonder who would win if it was Marissa vs Omarosa in the end? Marissa hasn’t really made any game moves – she has just talked everyone to death!

IMO Brandi never got over her husband and father of her only children cheating on her. And then it’s constantly public ….I know what it feels like and forever painful. She still talks about him and I don’t think she’s found anyone to help her pain go away. It may have been easier if she didn’t have children she had to share with him and his famous new wife. So I give her a break but yep she’s super annoying drunk but still not as annoying as sober Marissa.

If Brandi goes on the block I can see her asking to go home in an effort to save face. She has been mopey since the family videos and the only person who would talk to her was an ex boss. No friends,no family- an ex boss. Time to reevaluate your personality Brandi, the drunk slut isn’t working anymore!

Tendr. I feel for Brandi too. I also watched her on RHOBH. Love that one. Lol. Anyway I thot she looked better there she’s lost too much weight and looks like she had some bad plastic surgery. But I think the reason she was kicked off the show was Lisa Vandepump. That’s one witch you don’t want to mess with!! And Brandi had thrown a glass of wine in her and slapped her to name two I know of! I don’t think she was back after that!!!lol. But at least she says it like she sees it!

Great recap, as usual, Lisa. Talk about a waste. I like Metta but if he was such a fan of Shannon’s, why did he not offer himself up then so she could stay? Did anyone watch The Talk today. I forgot to record it and wonder who Shannon and Metta think will win. Last night he said Ross but I’m sure he will go with whoever Shannon says should win. I agree to was pretty sad for Brandi to have Andy Cohen as her “hearing from a loved one” video while everyone else had family members.

Margie. I also heard her say she that the boys( I had thot she said one at first) were in China. No idea why. Then someone asked her as they were sitting around the kitchen bar, if the boys were coming home that day and she said yes. Both quietly and sadly.
I don’t get it. Brandi is their mother. I think they are 10 and 14. And HE cheated on her!!! So why does it seem
Like he has sole custody?? I actually hope it’s becshse she doesn’t speak up and that changes not because he got custody because of her drinking. Either way I can see why sees so down. Maybe this was a way she thot she could get away from her life and make some money to help her fight whatever problems she does have.

I think it is ridiculous. The only ones who didn’t voluntarily leave was Chuck and Shannon. I think they should just make them quit and then they aren’t on the jury and give up their money. They are taking the easy way out and keeping the money coming in. I do not like it at all.

In BBAD last night, I was disappointed that the first two hours were reruns of the last two nights! Then, when live finally came on, they must have spent 15 minutes or more just watching James taking a shower 🚿! I have questions about the person behind the camera! 📷

I’m guessing all the HG’s are getting paid as well as competing for the $250k for their charity. Happens all the time on these shows. If you quit you don’t get paid…but if you’re voted out, you keep your paycheck. Nobody on that show is walking away from easy money. We as the viewer suffer for it.

I just hope they will pick a group of people who will really love the game and play the game! I also hope they choose people with morals, not looking for showmances! That is one thing that was refreshing about this show! The language, for the most part, was good! I would like to see more CBB in the future!

It’s kinda funny reading everyone’s take on Brandi. Of course she’s a train wreck… she spends her life on reality shows… what normal person does that! Her poor face is so Botoxed up it barely moves! What a mess!!
I’ve missed the “we’ve got alcohol” cries… because apparently there’s plenty-plenty-plenty of wine.. I think Brandi drinks it with her Cheerios!
As for Metta… I’d have to say he’s got NO GAME.. he only had a week left.. he couldn’t tuff it out? A major disappointment.
I’m so glad that Mark got HOH! At least the other side of the house will lose a player and even things up a bit. James better step it up at double eviction or he will find himself gone…
Overall… I’m enjoying this “celebrity” BB season.. one that, initially, I had planned to skip… what a surprise!

Star, I miss RHOBH. I like Lisa Vanderpump though I don’t agree with her views on some things. Her love for animals and her fighting for the dogs beaten and eaten in disgusting China and seeing how she and her hubby crying looking at the video really moved me. She also adopted one of her children yet when he got lazy and didn’t pay his electric bill…she refused to pay it and told him to work for it. I see a softness underneath all that makeup and material things that I don’t see in some of the others. But it was sad she and Brandi ended their friendship. Brandi needs spiritual help before any other help will work.
