Big Brother 23 — Week 3 Veto Comp

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 24, 2021

Hi, everyone!

So, this was a veto comp that Brent really needed to win and …. well, he didn’t.

Instead, the veto was won by Christian. When this season started, I thought that Christian and Brent would be natural allies but it hasn’t turned out that way. Brent has managed to alienate everyone in the House by being arrogant and paranoid and that includes Christian. So, I don’t expect the veto to be used.

When last I checked, Xavier was still trying to convince Brent that Brittini was actually the target. I don’t think Brent buys that at all. Brittini, meanwhile, is understandable annoyed at being used as a pawn two weeks in a row and she’s now worried that she’s going to become a pawn every week. Brittini has been telling everyone that if she wins HoH, she’s going to blow the house up which …. actually, that might not be a smart thing to say when you’re on the block.

That said, Brittini should be safe this week. Everyone wants Brent out and without the veto, it doesn’t look like there’s much chance of that changing.

We’ll see what happens! I’ll be surprised if Brent goes quietly.


Big Brother 23 — Week 3 Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 23, 2021

Hi, everyone! Sorry for the late update.

Today, in the Big Brother House, the day started with the Wild Card comp, which was won by Tiffany. Since Xavier wasn’t planning on putting Tiffany up on the block, it really didn’t matter.

Instead, Xavier went through with his original plan, which was to nominate Brent. Though he considered nominating Whitney to join Brent on the block, he eventually decided to nominate Brittini instead. Xavier told Brent that Brittini is the target while telling everyone else in the House that Brent is the target. Xavier thinks that this will cause Brent to not play hard for the veto but Brent went into this week knowing that a lot of people were targeting him and he didn’t sound too convinced while he was listening to Xavier explain “the plan.” So, I think Brent’s probably going to try hard to win that veto. If it’s a physical comp, Brent might be a threat to win. If it’s a mental comp, Brent is probably doomed.

Everyone in the House is okay with Brent leaving this week but more and more of the men — especially Derek F. — are starting to complain that a woman hasn’t gone home yet. So far, the House has been united against common enemies like Frenchie and Brent but once all of the obvious targets are gone, it’ll be interesting to see who ends up betraying who.

Veto comp is tomorrow! It’s a must-win for Brent if he wants to have any chance of staying in the House.

Big Brother 23 — About Tonight’s Eviction

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 22, 2021

Needless to say, the post below is a spoiler if you haven’t watched the latest eviction episode of Big Brother. So, if you don’t want to know who was voted out or if you haven’t seen the episode yet and you want to be “surprised,” don’t read any further.

Now, for the rest of us, what happened tonight really wasn’t a surprise. Frenchie was voted out of the house. The final vote was 11-1. Derek F. voted for Bittini, just as he went against the House last week and secretly voted for Alyssa. I think Derek F. is just trying to keep everyone off-balance, though it’s possible that he could have sincerely felt sorry for Frenchie and didn’t want him to be unanimously voted out of the house. Derek F. and Frenchie was fairly close when the game started so anything’s possible.

The only real suspense was whether or not Brent, who was pretty much everyone’s pick to be the next target, would win HoH and that suspense ended quickly when Brent was one of the first people to be eliminated from the HoH comp. Instead, the new HoH is Xavier and Xavier has been one of the people talking about going after Brent so it’s probable that Brent will be on the block this week. Brent has narrowly escaped being nominated for two weeks in a row but I think his luck may have run out.

We’ll find out tomorrow!


It’s that time of the week!

It’s time for you, the readers and the watchers, to cast your vote to evict!

Do you vote for:

Frenchie, the super fan whose gameplay has been anything but


Brittini, who hasn’t really done enough to get a silly description yet?

Cast your vote in the poll that’s over on the right side of the page or let us know in the comments below! And then be sure to watch Big Brother on Thursday to see who joins Travis in sequester!

Happy voting!


Big Brother 23 — Who Is Next?

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 20, 2021

Hi, everyone!

So, to be honest, it’s been a fairly boring day in the Big Brother House. Frenchie and Brittini are on the block. The house is pretty much united when it comes to voting out Frenchie so it’s not as if there’s a lot of last-minute strategizing going on as far as the vote is concerned. Frenchie might get a sympathy vote from someone. Derek F. might throw in a random vote for Bittini just to make people nervous, like he did last week when he voted for Alyssa. But otherwise, there’s really no questions about who is going to leave on Thursday.

Instead, the question is more about who is going to be the next target and right now, it would appear to be that just about everyone is ready to go after Brent.

Brent has pretty much managed to alienate everyone in the house, just by being cocky and continually talking down to everyone. He’s spent most of today talking about how there’s an all-girls alliance and that, in order to even things out, two girls need to go on the block next week. (He’s specifically mentioned Azah and Birttini as his two choices.) For some reason, though, Brent decided to tell this to Hannah, Sarah Beth, and Whitney. Why would you tell three women that your entire strategy is to get all of the women out of the house!? HOW DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE!?

It makes sense to Brent, though, and it’s probably going to get him voted out if he doesn’t win HoH on Thursday. Now, to Brent’s credit, he does seem to know that he’s going to be nominated if he doesn’t win HoH. As he explained it to Alyssa, he thinks that the girls are going to come after him and Derek X. His plan, if he’s not HoH, is to try to convince the girls that he and Christian can win challenges for them if they allow the two of them to stay in the House. That approach worked with both Frenchie and Kyland but I’m not sure how many times Brent’s going to be able to escape being put on the block. His whole attitude has just rubbed too many people the wrong way.

So, come Thursday, it’s basically going to be Brent against the House. We’ll see what happens!


Big Brother — Week 2 Veto Meeting Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 19, 2021

So, today was the veto meeting.

Just to refresh, here’s how the house stands:

Kyland is HoH.

Frenchie and Brittini are the nominees.

Frenchie is the target.

Derek X has the veto.

Before the meeting, Frenchie made a last ditch case to Kyland, asking Kyland to ask Derek X to use the veto not on him but instead on Brittini. Frenchie framed it as wanting to go out on the block with “another competitor” like Brent or Christian but it was obvious that Frenchie just wanted Kyland to replace Brittini with someone who he could campaign against. Frenchie knows that everyone like Brittini while Brent and Christian are viewed as being threats.

Kyland, however, was not persuaded. Derek X did not use the veto and the noms remained the same.

So, in other words, we’ve got another few days to go with the Frenchie pity party. If you thought Frenchie was erratic and emotions when he was HoH, that’s nothing compared to how he is on the block. He’s spent today telling everyone that he doesn’t care, just to then turn around and say that it’s an outrage and totally unfair. He’s all over the place and if he gets to Thursday without going off on someone, I’ll be surprised.


Big Brother 23 –Pity Party

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 18, 2021

Yesterday, we had the veto comp. Tomorrow, we have the veto meeting.

Today, we’ve got the pity party.

Oh, how Frenchie is making everyone feel guilty about their plans to vote him out! When he was first nominated, Frenchie told everyone that 1) there were going to be fireworks because he could blow up everyone’s secret alliances (even though the only secret alliances were made by him) and 2) that the only reason he was playing the game was to raise money for a children’s hospital. So, by voting him out, the houseguests were basically robbing a children’s hospital. WAY TO GO, KYLAND!

After Derek X won the veto and it became clear that he wasn’t planning on using it, Frenchie told everyone that he wasn’t mad and that he understood and that he just wanted everyone to relax and be happy during his final days in the House. He said he was at peace with it all. He did ask that everyone refrain from leaving him mean goodbye messages because his kids are going to be watching.

(Personally, I hate mean goodbye messages so I think Frenchie had every right to make that request. If I was a houseguest, I might be offended that Frenchie apparently assumed I would be that petty.)

Then, later in the night, Frenchie announced that he was just going to self-evict and then he disappeared into the diary room for hours!

Well, it’s a new day and Frenchie has not self-evicted. He either changed his mind or he was talked out of doing it. Regardless, a lot of people have been talking about how they feel bad about voting out Frenchie. Kyland actually let it be known that he was tired of Derek F. talking about how bad he felt for Frenchie. That’s not going to be enough to change Derek F.’s vote but it has been enough to make things a bit awkward between Derek and Kyland.

Still, Derek X has remained firm and he’s repeated to anyone who has asked that he’s not going to use the veto. We’ll see if that’s true tomorrow. We’ll also see if Frenchie sticks with his pledge to not start any drama in the house during his final days.


Big Brother 23 — Week 2 Veto

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 17, 2021

Hi, everyone!

So, they played for the veto today. And this was a veto that Frenchie absolutely knew that he had to win. He knew that if he didn’t win the veto, he’s probably going to go home on Thursday. Unfortunately, for him, he didn’t win the veto. Instead, the veto was won by….


That’s right. For the 2nd week in a row, Derek X has won the veto. You have to wonder how long Derek X can continue to win comps before he starts to get a target on his back, though. For now, Derek X is not planning on using the veto and Frenchie is pretty much guaranteed to leave on Thursday. Frenchie keeps telling everyone that he’s fine with leaving and that he’s had a good time and that he wants everyone to enjoy the next few days and I’m not buying any of it for a second. Frenchie’s angry, offended, and hurt and I won’t be surprised if we see some of those promised fireworks before the week ends!

The first two weeks have been so dominated by Frenchie and his alliance-making that, when he leaves, it’s literally going to be the start of an entirely new game. I’m looking forward to seeing what happens!

Big Brother 23 — Week 2 Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 16, 2021

Hi, everyone! Please forgive the late update!

Today, the new HoH Kyland made his nominations. From the minute that Kyland won HoH, it was been obvious that he would be targeting Frenchie. Frenchie nominated him last week and almost the entire house now wants Frenchie gone because it’s felt that he can’t be trusted and that he’s playing too hard. The only question was who would also go on the block beside Frenchie. At first, Kyland was planning on nominating Brent but Brent managed to talk him out of that, promising Kyland safety if Brent wins the next HoH.

Kyland then decided to nominate Brittini because he feels that Brittini is Frenchie’s biggest ally in the House. And that’s exactly what Kyland did at the nominations ceremony.

So, as for right now, the nominees are Frenchie and Brittini. Frenchie realizes that he’s the target and he is not happy about it. Ever since the ceremony happened, he’s been telling people that there are going to be “fireworks” this week. Frenchie says that he’s not going to leave quietly. We’ll see what that means!

The veto comp is tomorrow! If Frenchie doesn’t win, he’s probably out of here on Thursday.

Lisa Marie

P.S. The wild card comp was won by Sarah Beth. She was given the option of joining the Queens and taking away the immunity that they received when Kyland won HoH. Sarah Beth chose not to. I’m not really sure what the logic there was because it’s not like Kyland is going to nominate anyone from his team this week, regardless of whether they had immunity or not. I’m not really a huge fan of the Wild Card twist or the teams twist and I’ll be glad when their over.


Big Bother 23 — About Tonight (SPOILERS)

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 15, 2021

Hi, everyone! Obviously, it’s spoiler time as I’m about to talk about who got voted out tonight. So, if you haven’t seen the vote yet and you don’t want to know, stop reading now!



So, by a vote of 11-2, Travis was evicted out of the Big Brother House. Travis did do some campaigning over the past few days and some people really did seem to feel bad about voting for him, but, in the end, everyone stuck to the plan and voted to evict him. Only TIffany and Derek F. voted to keep him. Tiffany, I think, wanted to keep Travis around because their teammates. Derek F. was probably just trying to keep everyone off-balance.

I can’t really say that I’m sorry to see Travis leave. He seems like a harmless and kind of goofy guy but he also didn’t seem like someone who was going to add much to the game. He made a big point of taking off his shirt while giving his pre-eviction speech and that was pretty much all you needed to know about Travis’s priorities. Travis was better suited for Love Island than Big Brother.

As for the HoH comp, it was won by Kyland. So, Kyland went from being nominated to being HoH! He is safe this week and so are his two remaining teammates, Claire and Tiffany. I’m going to guess that Derek X. is going to be safe as well, seeing as how he used the veto to take Kyland off the block.

So far, Kyland’s entire strategy has been based around trying to be the most likable person in the House so it’ll be interesting to see how he handles being HoH. Tomorrow, we have another wildcard comp and then it’s time for nominations. I’m not sure who Kyland will nominate, though it wouldn’t surprise me if he nominated Brent and Christian. He wasn’t happy about being nominated by Frenchie but I’m not sure if Kyland is going to use this week to get revenge or not.

We’ll see what happens tomorrow!
