Big Brother Over The Top: The End Approaches

by Lisa Marie Bowman on November 17, 2016

Hi, everyone!

Here’s a new post for everyone to comment under!

Well, Big Brother Over The Top is reaching its conclusion.  Only a few more weeks to go.  At this point, I’m cheering for Shelby and Morgan.  I know that the odds are against them but strangers things have happened!

It’s odd — as much as I was kind of dreading having to deal with an online Big Brother, the season has actually moved pretty quickly.  There’s been things that I’ve liked and some things that I don’t like.  I actually do kind of like the idea of America’s votes actually having an impact on the game, though I’m do think it’s given Jason an unfair advantage.  I’d say let America keep its power but stop sending in veterans and/or recruiting people who are related to previous Big Brother competitors.

I’m definitely not a fan of the drawn out nomination ceremony.  But I do like the fact that they’ve allowed us to watch the competitions online.

There are definitely lessons that production could learn from what has worked and has not worked with Big Brother Over The Top.

Anyway, last night, Danielle was voted out of the house.  I would have rather seen Jason go but oh well.  If Jason isn’t evicted, he’s going to win this season.  His fans are going to vote for him no matter what.

The current HoH is MORGAN!  Fortunately, last week was also the last week that America would cast votes for America’s Nominee.  So, that means that Shelby doesn’t have to worry about all of Jason’s fans nominating her for eviction.  So, it should be a member of the Late Night Jamboree going home this week!

We’ll see what happens,

Big Brother Over The Top: The Diary Room Is Now Open!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on November 15, 2016

Well, yesterday, America spoke and it named Morgan as the third nominee!

However, just a few hours later, Shelby won the veto!  And earlier today, she used that veto on Morgan!  I think this is the first time, this season, that one of America’s nominations has been vetoed.  And personally, I’m really happy that it happened.  Jason and the Misfits were getting way too complacent so it’s about time they actually had to make a strategic decision beyond just voting out someone from the other side of the house.

Now, since Mogan was America’s nominee, there will be no replacement nominee.  For the first time this season, there will only be two people up for eviction.

So, let’s open up the Diary Room!

Do you vote to evict…

DANIELLE, the single mother who has been begging America to save her

or

JASON, the all-star with an attitude?

Cast your vote in the comments below or use the poll over on the right side of the page!

As for me, I’m voting for Jason.  Why?

  1. Jason is annoying and entitled.
  2. Jason is never called out on his misogynistic BS.
  3. If Jason makes it to the finale, he’ll win easily because of his rabid fan base.  So, the only way to make the finale interesting is to vote Jason out now!

Happy voting!

Big Brother Over The Top: Shelby’s Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on November 14, 2016

Hi everyone!

Well, here’s a quick update for everyone.  Mostly I just want to give y’all a new page to comment under.  For those who may not have heard yet, here’s the current situation in the Big Brother House:

Shelby is HoH.

Apparently, there is no care package this week.  I assume that’s because they did a special care package during the double eviction.

Shelby has nominated … JASON AND DANIELLE FOR EVICTION!

Now, to be honest, it’s all up to America.  On twitter, Jason’s fans are demanding that Morgan be nominated.  If America does nominate Morgan then that means only Justin and Kryssie will be voting to evict and Morgan is pretty much guaranteed to be voted out (unless, of course, she wins the veto).  I’m hoping that America will nominate Kryssie and I just gave her all my votes.

But, honestly, I think it’s going to be Morgan.  Jason has a very dedicated fan base.

We’ll find out tomorrow!

Big Brother Over The Top: Sorry For The Late Update

by Lisa Marie Bowman on November 10, 2016

Hi, everyone!

I’m sorry for the late update.  As most of you know, yesterday was my birthday so I was out celebrating last night and I’ve been recovering today! 🙂

So, last night, we had a double eviction.  First Alex was evicted, which we all saw coming.  Then, they held another HoH competition, which Danielle won.  Then, the viewers hastily voted on a care package, which Morgan won.  As a result of getting the package, Morgan also won safety for herself and the power to make someone else safe.  Since Morgan knew that Whitney had betrayed the ballsmashers and gone over to the other side of the house, it was not a surprise when Morgan made Shelby safe.

So, as a result, Danielle could not nominate two of the biggest targets in the house.  So, instead, she nominated Justin and Whitney for eviction.  Morgan and Shelby voted to evict Justin.  Jason and Kryssie voted to evict Whitney.  Danielle broke the tie but sending Whitney home.

(By the way, Rachel made a surprise appearance and hosted the HoH comp.  I’m trying to erase that from my memory because … well, it was Rachel.)

After all that, it was time for another HoH comp!  And we’re still waiting for the results of that because one of those classic Big Brother HoH screwups occurred!  Amazingly, it always seems like there’s some sort of controversy when it comes to Big Brother HoH comps.  Either the rules aren’t clear or they seem to change at the last minute or they don’t make any sense … it’s really pretty much the opposite of Survivor.

Basically, this was a timed comp.  It involved using mirrors to point a laser beam at a target.  It was a pretty complicated challenge, to be honest.  I wouldn’t have been able to do it within the 20 minute time limit.

Anyway, of the competing houseguests, Jason had the quickest time but one of Shelby’s mirrors broke during her turn!  According to the rulebook, if a mirror was broken during the comp, the HG would be disqualified.  However, Shelby claims that the mirror was actually broken before she even started her turn.  Anyway, Shelby was basically so upset that production agreed to let her and Jason do a second HoH competition tonight.  Whoever wins will be the new HoH.

Needless to say, Jason is not happy.

Jason is also not happy because the HGs just learned that Donald Trump was elected President.  Danielle and Kyrssie started crying.  Shelby is pretty shaken as well.  Jason cannot stop talking about how angry he is but, what’s interesting, is that Jason also said that he’s not even registered to vote.

Honestly, Jason — you’re 27 years old.  You’re always going on and on abut the way you think the world needs to be.  Right now, you’re throwing a fit over how the election turned out.  BUT YOU’RE NOT EVEN REGISTERED TO VOTE!

Jason is the reason my generation can’t have nice things.

Anyway, HoH comp is tonight!  We’ll see who wins!

(If Shelby wins, expect a lot of outrage on twitter.)

Big Brother Over The Top: Bleh!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on November 7, 2016

Hi, everyone!

So, I’m finally ready to do an update.  Thank you everyone for your patience, I’ve been under the weather.  Luckily, our commenters are doing a fantastic job of keeping things updated on the site!  Thank you, everyone!

So, I’m not real happy with how this week is shaping up.  I was excited, of course, when Shelby won HoH but then Jason won the care package, which allowed him to be co-HoH.  I’ve said this before and I know that a lot of y’all have said it as well but it really is the truth: Jason has entered this game with an unfair advantage.  If production is going to give this much power to the viewers, they needed to allow all of the houseguests to start on an even playing field.  Either that or else it needed to be an all-star season so that everyone would start with fanbase.

It wouldn’t bother me so much if Jason himself wasn’t such a whiny little misogynist.  But it is what it is, right?

Anyway, Shelby and Jason are co-HoHs.  (Don’t even get me started on what I think about the idea of having two HoHs.)  Shelby nominated Whitney.  Jason nominated Danielle.  And then America nominated Alex.

We had the veto comp earlier today.  Jason won it, which means that Danielle is probably going to come down and Morgan will go up in her place.  That means that, just like last week, only one side of the house will get to vote.  It’ll the Late Night Jamboree casting all the votes, which means that Alex’s days are probably numbered.

We’ll see what happens!

Again, thank you to everyone who has been commenting and helping to keep this site up to date!  You’re the best!

Big Brother Over The Top: YAY!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on November 3, 2016

Hi y’all!

I missed last night’s episode of Big Brother Over The Top but I’m happy to hear that 1) Scott was voted out and 2) SHELBY IS THE NEW HOH!

YAY!

As for how the voting went:

As HoH, Danielle was not eligible to vote.

As nominees, Morgan, Scott, and Shebly were not eligible to vote.

Shelby used her care package power to make Justin, Jason, and Kryssie ineligible to vote.

Alex and Whitney both voted to evict Scott and so, Scott was evicted.  And I’m sure that was heart-breaking for Scott, who took being nominated by America pretty personally.  But, honestly, Scott always gave me the creeps so I’m not sorry to see him go.  As well, after Big Brother 18, it’s fun to see the girls totally dominating Big Brother Over The Top.

Anyway, the other big news from this week was that Whitney is attempting to play both sides of the house.  However, since Whitney absolutely sucks at being sneaky, everyone knows what she’s doing.  As well, Danielle used the veto on Whitney and that again gives the other Ball-smashers reason to be skeptical of her.  Whitney’s days may be numbered.

Anyway, here’s your top 8:

Ball-Smashers:

Alex

Shelby

Morgan

Late Night Jamboree:

Jason

Justin

Kryssie

Danielle

Ball-Smasher and Late Night Jamboree:

Whitney

(And, of course, the 9th houseguest … AMERICA!)

Anyway, here’s a new page for everyone to comment under.  Thank you to all of our commenters, for helping to keep us all updated with what’s happening inside the house!

Big Brother Over The Top: The Diary Room Is Now Open!

by Lisa Marie Bowman on November 1, 2016

Hi y’all!

I swear, these Wednesday evictions always sneak up on me and I’m always late opening up the diary room.

Well, let’s get to it.  Who do you vote to evict this week?

Do you vote for

MORGAN, who shouldn’t have to leave before revealing that Alex is her sister

SHELBY, who I would totally hang out with in real life

or

SCOTT, the creepy little jerk from Maine?

Okay, can you guess how I’m voting?

Anyway, cast your vote in the comments or over on the poll on the right side of the page!  And come tomorrow night, watch as someone is voted out and someone new becomes HoH!

Happy voting!

Big Brother Over The Top: Danielle’s Nominees

by Lisa Marie Bowman on October 30, 2016

Hi everyone!

Judging from the comments, all of you already know this but let’s just make it official:

Dani is the HoH.

Shelby won the care package, which gives her the ability to eliminate three votes.

Danielle made her nominations and she nominated:

Whitney, no surprise there

and

SHELBY!?

I’m not sure what Danielle’s logic is.  Shelby can eliminated anyone who might want to vote against her so why waste a nomination on her?  Danielle’s really not that smart.  She should have nominated Morgan because, right now, I’m seriously thinking that Alex and Morgan might be the first two sisters to ever make it to the final two.

Anyway, tomorrow, we’ll have the veto and we’ll discover who America’s nominee is!  Misfit fans on twitter are trying to get everyone to vote for Scott.  Fans of the Ballsmashers are voting for Kryssie.

I just voted for Kryssie.  I think she’s done all she can do in the game and I’m sick of seeing her sitting around, looking all glum and angry all the time.

We’ll see what happens!
