Big Brother 20: Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 14, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, the feeds are down for the nomination ceremony right now but I can tell you exactly who is going to be nominated and who is going to be targeted this week because Kaycee, Angela, and Tyler discussed it last night and nothing’s happened that would have changed their minds.

First off, in case you didn’t know, Angela is new the HoH.  We’ll see her win the HoH comp on Sunday’s show.  With Angela’s victory, that pretty much assured that these next few days are going to be dominated by Angela, Tyler, and Kaycee.  So, it should come as no shock that Angela is going to nominate JC and Sam for eviction.  From the conversation that Angela, Tyler, and Kaycee had last night, it’s clear that Sam is the target.  They feel that she’s a bigger risk to win the next HoH than JC and they’re probably right.

In her nomination speech, Angela is planning on telling Sam and JC that they’ve been nominated because there’s no way either one of them could be beaten in a final two situation.  What’s funny is that Angela’s right but she doesn’t realize it.

So, when the feeds come back, Sam and JC will be on the block and, unless she wins the veto tomorrow, Sam will probably be voted out next.  If this season is anything like previous seasons, that eviction will happen on either Monday or Tuesday, though they’ll present it as being live when they show it to us on Wednesday.  Chances are that the feeds will be down quite a bit this upcoming week.

I believe they’re having a celebratory concert in the backyard today, probably so they can film the dreaded flashback episode.  So, expect feeds to be down for a long time.

Big Brother 20: Double Eviction Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 13, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, let’s just make it official.  If you haven’t seen tonight’s Double Eviction episode, this will be a spoiler!  So, if you don’t want the results spoiled until you can watch it for yourself, stop reading now.

Tonight was the first and only double eviction episode of the 20th season of Big Brother.  First, Haleigh was voted out by a vote of 4-0.  No one was surprised to see her go and now, every member of the Hive has officially been voted out of the House.

After Haleigh was voted out, it was time for Operation Backdoor Brett.  Earlier this week, Brett made the mistake of telling Tyler that he felt Kaycee and Angela were getting too close and that it might be time to vote Angela out of the house.  Since Tyler is now in love with Angela, that meant that Brett’s days in the House were numbered.

First, Tyler won HoH.  As soon as Tyler won HoH, he assured Brett that either Kaycee or JC was the target (I’m not totally sure which name he said) and then told Brett to throw the POV.  Tyler said that he would happily get all the blood on his hands.  Brett looked confused by the request.

Tyler nominated JC and Sam for eviction.  Then, Angela won the veto.  Even when Brett congratulated Angela after the win, Angela told him that there was no way that she was going to use the veto and he was safe.

Exactly six minutes later, Angela used the veto, Tyler nominated Brett, and Brett was evicted by a 3-0 vote.

It was an exciting episode but you know what?  Tyler blew it.  Yes, he got out his target.  But he and Angela were so cold-hearted about it that they may very well have lost Brett’s vote.  When Angela used the veto, she smirked and said that she was staying “one step ahead.”  Then, when Tyler nominated Brett, he said that he was staying “two steps ahead.”  It was unnecessarily smug and not a smart way to treat someone heading to the jury.

What’s funny is that Tyler wouldn’t have made that mistake in the past.  He would have made it sound like the House was forcing him to put Brett up.   But ever since Tyler got involved with Angela, his social game has been slipping.  It’s like he wants to show that he can be just as cold and ruthless as Angela.

So, Brett is now gone.  Our final five are Tyler, Angela, Kaycee, JC, and Sam.  And now, we’re just waiting for the results of the next HoH comp!

Here’s the schedule for the rest of the season:

The next eviction will be aired on Wednesday.  Then, on Thursday, someone else will be evicted.  Then the final three will battle it out for the final HoH and a winner will be selected on the 26th!

We’ll see what happens!

Hi y’all!

So, it’s that time!  We’ve finally reached this season’s double eviction!  Now, if Kaitlyn had been able to solve the puzzle during week 4 and reenter the house, there would have been a double eviction during week 5.  But she failed and, as a result, this is going to be one of the few seasons of Big Brother to have only one double eviction!

As of right now, it appears that Haleigh will be voted out first and right now, unless he wins HoH or the veto, it looks like Brett’s going to be backdoored.

So you know what that means!

It’s time to open up the Diary Room!

Which two houseguests do you vote to evict?  Do you vote to evict:

ANGELA, half of this season’s most boring showmance,

BRETT, the master of the mean goodbye message

HALEIGH, the final members of the Hive

JC, the star of TMZ

KAYCEE, the one who keeps winning all those vetoes

SAM, the curb stompin’ welder


TYLER, production’s favorite lifeguard?

Cast your two votes over in the poll on the right side of the page or in the comments below!  And then be sure to tune in on Thursday night to see which two houseguests will join the jury!

Happy voting,

Lisa Marie

Big Brother 20: How About Some Pictures?

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 11, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, as of right now, there’s not a whole lot to report about the house.  Haleigh has been following Angela around everywhere and has basically been going through her usual ritual of sucking up to everyone in the house.  In fact, she’s been spending so much time with Angela that, during one of the few times when Haleigh wasn’t with her, Angela felt the need to reassure Sam that Haleigh is indeed the target this week.  As Angela explained it to Sam, everyone in the House is sick of Haleigh and can’t wait to vote her out.

So, again, it looks like Haleigh is definitely going to be the first person voted out of the House on Thursday.  What happens after that is anyone’s guess.  Assuming a member of Level 6 wins the HoH, I imagine that it’ll be either JC or Sam who follows her to the jury house.  If either Sam or JC wins HoH, all bets are off.

Since there’s not much going on in the House, I figured that I would share a few pictures with everyone.  First off, I’ve spent a lot of time criticizing JC this season but I did want to show everyone what he did today:

Secondly, on Saturday, we had this season’s comic book veto comp.  Production has released images of the covers for the five houseguests who were evicted prejury.  Here they are:






Because of the “Twinston” cover, the houseguests have been speculating that Winston and his twin may have been switching placed in the House, like the Nolan sisters did back in Big Brother 17.  Of course, that didn’t happen but Brett still seems to be pretty disturbed at the thought that he may have been hanging out with Winston’s twin instead of Winston.

We’ll get to see all of the comic book covers on tomorrow’s show!

And then on Thursday, it’ll be time for the double eviction!

We’ll see what happens,

Big Brother: Veto Ceremony Spoilers

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 10, 2018

Hi, everyone!

Okay, so today, they did the veto ceremony.  Before I talk about that (because, honestly, nothing really that interesting happened during the ceremony), I want to address some speculation that I’ve seen online.

We all know what’s been going on for the last few days.  Les Moonves, the president of CBS and the husband of Julie Chen, has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting several women, over a period of time that stretches from the late 80s to the early aughts.  When the first accusations came out, Julie issued a brief statement in which she stood by Moonves.  This weekend, six more women stepped forward.  Moonves has stepped down as the president of CBS and whether Julie Chen is going to stay at the network is questionable.  She released a statement this morning saying that she was taking a leave of absence from The Talk but that she would host Thursday’s live episode of Big Brother.

If you go on twitter right now, you will find a surprisingly large number of people who are convinced that, if Julie leaves CBS, that means that Big Brother is going to be canceled.  Let me assure you right now: Big Brother is not going to be canceled.  As long as a show is making money for a network, it’s not going to be canceled.  Right now, Big Brother is a moneymaker.  The show regularly wins its time slot and it’s also cheap to produce.  So, ignore the doomsayers online.  At the most, next season may have a new host but Big Brother isn’t going anywhere.

As for today’s veto meeting, Kaycee did …


I know, I know.  As Danielle would say, “Shocka!”  There was no reason for Kaycee to use the veto and she didn’t.  So, on Thursday night, Sam and Haleigh will be sitting on the block and, unless Sam lets her paranoia get the better of her and ends up pulling a Rachel, Haleigh will be voted out.

However, what happens after Haleigh’s voted out?  Who goes next in the double eviction?

Of course, it all depends on who wins the second HoH.  Once Haleigh’s gone, Tyler will basically have a final two deal with every single person left in the House.  So, I imagine he will not want to win HoH because, if he does, there’s no way he can’t betray someone.  If Angela wins HoH, I have a feeling that she’ll probably nominate Sam and JC and Sam will be evicted.

Brett has been saying that he thinks Angela and Tyler need to be broken up but, if he won HoH, would he actually have the courage to nominate one of them?  You can ask the same question of JC.  Personally, I don’t think either one of them would.  I get the feeling that they both would just go ahead and play it safe by targeting Sam.  If Sam wins HoH, I imagine that she’ll definitely nominate Angela for eviction but I don’t know who else she would put up there.  JC maybe?

As always, we’ll see what happens on Thursday.  What I can say for sure is that Haleigh’s about to go to the jury house and Level 6 is about to have to turn on each other.

Big Brother 20: Veto Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 9, 2018

Hi everyone!

It took them a while to get started but they finally played for the veto today.  It was apparently the Big Brother Comic Book comp and everyone was selected to play except for JC.  That meant that JC not only got to host but he also got to spend a few hours locked in the HoH room by himself.

Anyway, the winner of the veto was…


That’s right.  For the third week in a row, Kaycee has won the golden power of veto.  Apparently, it only took her two minutes to complete her part of the competition.  That is a new Big Brother record as far as BB comics are concerned!

Anyway, with Kaycee winning the veto, that pretty much means that Haleigh’s lost her final chance to stay in the house.  Kaycee is going to keep her nominations the same.  Unless Sam really screws up somehow, Haleigh will be the first person evicted on Thursday night.

The veto meeting is on Monday!  As for Sunday’s episode of Big Brother, I’m going to guess that most of it will be about the former houseguests dropping by the house for Nicole and Victor’s engagement.  And, of course, we’ll get to see how Haleigh reacted when her face appeared on the nomination wall for the fourth time.

That’s it for now because it’s really, really late.

Big Brother 20: Kaycee’s Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 7, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, as you’ve probably either heard or seen, the feeds were down for several hours today.  There was a lot of speculation that someone might have self-evicted or maybe JC had been kicked out but instead, it turned out that a bunch of former HGs showed up at the house, including Nicole and Victor.  Victor asked Nicole to marry him and she said yes.

I imagine that the majority of Sunday’s show will be taken up with the whole Victor/Nicole thing, kind of like when Jeff and Jordan returned to the Big Brother House to get engaged.  So, if you’re a fan of Victor and Nicole, you might enjoy it.  Myself, I’m just cringing because I’ve heard that Paul and Josh were among the former houseguests who showed up at the house today.

Anyway, once all that was taken care of, Kaycee made her nominations and they’re not a shock at all.  I did think that Kaycee would nominate JC instead of Sam but no.  Instead, Sam and Haleigh are up on the block together and this time, Haleigh is definitely the target.  Depending on what happens with the veto, I imagine that this week will be full of tears.  Haleigh already said that she was probably going to have a nervous breakdown if she had to go on the block again and Sam is always paranoid about being blindsided.

The veto’s tomorrow!  If Haleigh doesn’t win it, she’ll be the first one voted out on Thursday.

Big Brother 20: About Tonight

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 6, 2018

Hi y’all!

So, there was a lot of fanfare and excitement when Scottie returned to the house.  And now, one week later, Scottie has once again exited the house.  Every single houseguest — even Sam — voted to evict him.  By a vote of 5-0, Scottie was evicted for second time.  He entered with a bang and left with a whimper.

Before he left, Scottie used his eviction speech to make a comment about Angela giving Tyler “lots of Hilton Head.”  I’m going to guess that 1) Scottie was informed, shortly before the show, that he actually wasn’t the pawn and that 2) Scottie is probably going to be a bitter juror.  Tyler’s goodbye message to Scottie — in which he bragged about never using the power app and then asked Scottie to pass that information along to his friends on the jury — felt incredibly smarmy.  All in all, this was one of the more unpleasant evictions that we’ve had this season.

As for the HoH comp, it was won by Kaycee!  Kaycee has really been coming on strong these past few weeks.  She’s won hacker, she’s won two vetoes, and now she’s won HoH.  She’s actually putting together a pretty good resume for herself.  It’ll be interesting to see if the other members of Level 6 start to view her as being a possible threat to their own game.

Anyway, Kaycee is now HoH and, since she’s a loyal team player, I assume that her target with Haleigh.  Who will she put on the block next to Haleigh?  JC seems like the obvious choice, since he’s the only person in the house who hasn’t been nominated so far.  Sam’s the other possibility but I don’t think anyone wants to spend the entire week dealing with an angry Sam.

Now, it all seems pretty simple but you have to remember that Brett is getting paranoid about Tyler and Angela.  If he tries to make a move this week and convince Kaycee to blindside Tyler and Angela, it could get interesting but I get the feeling that Brett will probably play it safe and wait until after Haleigh’s been evicted before he tries anything.

Finally, next Thursday is going to be the season’s only double eviction!  It’s about time!

Big Brother 20: “It’s what we’re good at.”

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 4, 2018

Hi y’all!

Well, despite some of the doubt that Tyler and Angela expressed about keeping Haleigh last night, it would appear that they’ve decided to just stick with targeting Scottie this week.  Kaycee was just up in the HoH room with them and she asked them point blank if they were going to blindside Scottie this week.

Tyler replied, “I guess.”

“It’s what we’re good at,” Angela agreed.

So, it would appear that Scottie is about to head back to the jury house.  He’s been told that he’s just the pawn this week and that Haleigh is the target but Scottie is still campaigning to be kept in the house.  From what I’ve seen today, he’s been focusing most of his efforts on Brett and JC.  Scottie has been telling both of them about how Haleigh had deals with everyone in the jury house and that, if she manages to get to the end, all of the former members of the Hive will vote for her.  He has a point but I think everyone feels that they can get rid of Haleigh any time that they want.

(Angela is also convinced that, even if Haleigh wins HoH on Thursday, Sam will be Haleigh’s target.)

JC, for the record, did flat out ask Scottie if Faysal said anything about who had convinced him to target Scottie in the first place.  Scottie replied that Faysal tried to blame JC but Scottie assumed that he was just lying to protect Haleigh.  Now, I doubt that Scottie really believes that but obviously, he’s trying to stay on JC’s good side.

Not surprisingly, everyone in the house has been asking Scottie about how Bayleigh and Rockstar feel towards the rest of them.  Apparently, despite all of the nasty goodbye messages, the houseguests do realize that there is a risk of getting a bitter jury.  According to Scottie, Bayleigh is okay with everyone while Rockstar is apparently still angry and still talking about spoiled and entitled Angela is.  Of course, Scottie has continually been reminding everyone that all three of the current jury members would probably vote for Haleigh to win the game.

For what it’s worth, I do think that Haleigh could still make it to the final two.  Though the plan is to evict her next week, Haleigh could always win HoH and there are some cracks starting to form in the Level 6 alliance.  As Margie pointed out in the comments under the last post, Brett is feeling threatened by the relationship between Angela and Tyler and he’s considering breaking off and forming a new alliance with Haleigh, Sam, and JC.  If Brett makes that move, it could lead to so much fighting among the members of the Level 6 that they might forget about Haleigh and she could conceivably sneak her way into the finale.

Will Scottie be blindsided or will the house realize that, even if she isn’t a challenge threat, Haleigh is a threat if she makes it to the final two?  We’ll find out soon!
