Big Brother 22 — Last Night’s Fight

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 8, 2020

Hi, everyone!

Well, it took a while but we finally got our first big fight of the season last night. Christmas, Da’Vonne, and Bayleigh got into it and it led to a lot of shouting and a lot of f-bombs, mostly from Christmas.

First off, some background. After Tyler told Bayleigh and Da’Vonne that he would be asking Christmas to put him on the block, both Bayleigh and Da’Vonne thought that the two of them might actually have a chance to staying in the House. Tyler went up to the HoH room to talk to Christmas about wanting to go up as a replacement nominee.

Now, the feeds were cut so we don’t know for sure what Christmas and Tyler talked about, nor do we know how sincere Tyler was in the first place. If we believe what Tyler has been telling the other houseguests, Christmas talked him out of it. We also know that Tyler and Christmas have a final two deal, which would certain have given her an incentive to keep him in the House.

The problem is that neither Tyler nor Christmas ever bothered to tell Da’Vonne and Bayleigh that the plan was off. As a matter of fact, after talking to Tyler, Christmas called Dani, Nicole, and Da’Vonne to the HoH room and she formed an all-girl’s alliance with them, which she named the Bombshell Blitzes. When Da’Vonne said something about bringing Bayleigh into the alliance, Christmas said that was definitely a possibility.

Then, before the veto ceremony, Tyler helped Bayleigh out with her veto speech. During that entire time, he never told her that he had decided to stay. So, at the veto ceremony, Bayleigh and Da’Vonne were surprised and upset when Christmas did not use the veto. Making thing worse was Christmas saying that she felt terrible about nominating Bayleigh and Da’Vonne but that she didn’t have any other options.

Last night, when everyone was downstairs, Da’Vonne approached Christmas and asked her just what exactly had happened and why she didn’t nominate Tyler. Christmas, more or less, refused to answer the question, perhaps because she didn’t want to reveal that she had a final two with Tyler. Instead, Christmas said that it wasn’t her job to nominate Tyler and that he should have just left on his own. Now, that would be a good argument if not for the fact that Christmas keeps crying about how terrible she feels about nominating Bayleigh and Da’Vonne and insisting that she doesn’t want either one of them to leave. If she was being sincere about wanting to keep both of them in the House, she had a perfect opportunity to do so.

Christmas then said that she didn’t feel like she could nominate Tyler unless Tyler called a house meeting and explained to everyone why he wanted to leave. Da’Vonne said that didn’t make sense and asked her if Tyler was supposed to do a house meeting before the Veto Ceremony or after, at which point Christmas got frustrated and started accusing Da’Vonne and Bayleigh of taking the game personally.

Bayleigh then entered the conversation, at which point Christmas started to raise her voice and curse. Da’Vonne walked away and then Bayleigh and Christmas got into an argument about whether or not Bayleigh was taking the game personally. Christmas told Bayleigh to f**k off and then walked away.

From what I saw, it seemed to me that Da’Vonne and Bayleigh were asking a fair question but, because Christmas didn’t have an answer, she lost it and started cursing. That’s the way it seems to me. That’s also the way it seemed to the rest of the houseguests, who spent most of the right night talking about the fight and how they felt Christmas didn’t handle it well.

Personally, if I was them, I would be concerned about why Christmas was so adamant about Tyler staying. Tyler is a bigger threat than either Da’Vonne or Bayleigh so most HoHs would have jumped at the chance to evict him without even having to get “blood on their hands.” If they didn’t already know that those two have a final two deal, they should know now.

Anyway, the fight provided a bit of excitement to what has, so far, been a fairly dry season. Bayleigh is probably going home on Thursday but everyone in the House is now annoyed with Christmas, who is viewed as having let her HoH status go straight to her head.

As always, we’ll see what happens!
