Big Brother 22 — Week 1 Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 8, 2020

Hi y’all!

So, yesterday, Cody made the first nominations of Week 1. Just as he said he was going to do, he nominated Kevin and Keesha. He did this despite the fact that, just hours before the nomination ceremony, Kevin approached him and had a very emotional discussion with him about feeling like an outsider and promising that he wouldn’t come after Cody.

So, as of right now, Kevin and Keesha are on the block. Keesha is Cody’s target, largely because 1) he doesn’t feel like he knows Keesha and 2) he feels that he can bring Memphis into his alliance once Keesha is gone. The veto comp is later today so we’ll see if that changes anything.

After the first few days of the season, I’d have to say that Kaysar probably has the best view of the house. He’s playing to win it this season and, in his discussions with Janelle, he’s been strategizing long term. Whereas Cody, Nicole, and Tyler seem to be planning on playing week-to-week and making alliances with whoever happened to be HoH at the time, Kaysar is already thinking about what he wants to happens during the 4th week of the season. Kaysar is playing a strategic game whereas the newer players like Cody and Tyler are playing social games.

It’ll be interesting to see which approach works. When Big Brother first started, the most strategic houseguest usually won. Even if the jury was bitter, they usually voted for the HG who played the best game. For instance, Evel Dick won despite being hated by most of the jury. Why? They knew he played the best game. However, all that changed when, at the end of Big Brother 14, Ian beat Dan. Ever since BB 14, juries have tended to vote with their emotions. As a result, jury management and dealing with hurt feelings has become a lot more important.

Personally, Kaysar will either make it to the final two or he’ll be voted out pre-jury. He’s smart but he’s definitely playing hard and I think, unless he gets lucky with some HoHs and some veto wins, he’s going to have a huge target on his back almost every week of the game.

Anyway, the veto should be today so we’ll see if either Keesha or Kevin can save themselves this week!

Poor Keesha. I’d say if she goes, Cody just wasted the first HOH of the season. She’s about as big a threat as those kittens they keep showing… not sure his strategy of pulling Memphis in will work either… Memphis is more of a 2-people alliance guy. Personally, I’d like to see him team up with Kaysar if the house can ever get Janelle out. She is probably the biggest threat in the house. I think Kaysar is an underestimated player, but his association with Janelle is what really makes him a target.

Kevin playing exactly the same game he played his first season. I like him, and I thought he said he was going to change his game… guess old habits die hard…

Hi Marcella! Hope you and your family have been keeping busy and safe. I agree with you about Janelle, but I think Christmas might give Janelle a run for her money during the challenges. Time will tell, but I do think Christmas will be a good competitor.
