Big Brother 24 — Things Are Moving Slowly

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 18, 2022

Hi, everyone!

I understand why production decided to do the veto competition early this week.  The show is not going to air on Wednesday (the premieres of Survivor and The Amazing Race are scheduled for that night) so they did the veto comp early so it could be included on Sunday’s show.  That’s understandable but, as a result, there’s now nothing going on in the Big Brother House.  Monte has the veto.  He’s not going to use it.  Taylor, Turner, and Monte are the final three.  Now, we’re just waiting until Thursday.

Here’s what I can tell you.

Brittany is still trying to convince Taylor that Turner was the one who voted to evict her.  Taylor still doesn’t believe her.  Brittany also finally told the other houseguests that she’s a hypnotherapist.  None of them really care.  Brittany has told the house cameras that she’s going to make a pitch to Monte to ask him to save her but she hasn’t actually done it yet.

The Monte/Taylor showmance is continuing, though Monte has also told Turner that he’s not sure that it will continue outside the house.  Monte feels that a lot of the showmance is something Taylor just wants to do in order “to make good television,” and that the two of them won’t have much in common once they leave the house.

And really, that’s pretty much it.  To be honest, the final week in the House is almost kind of boring and this season is proving to be no exception.  Everyone but Brittany knows who the top three is going to be so now it just comes down to whoever wins that final HoH.

Big Brother 24 — Things Are Moving Quickly

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 16, 2022

Hi, everyone!

Things are movie pretty quickly in the Big Brother House.  Last night, after she had only been HoH for a few hours, Taylor was called upon to make her nominations.  To no one’s surprise, she nominated Brittany and Turner.

This morning, the houseguests competed for the veto and Monte won.  So, the nominations will remain the same and Monte will be casting the only vote.  He has told both Taylor and Turner that he will be voting to evict Brittany.

For her part, Brittany has been lying to both Taylor and Monte about how she voted on Thursday.  Instead of admitting that she cast the vote for Taylor, Brittany has been claiming that it was Turner.  No one believes Brittany.  If nothing else, her lying has made them even more determined to get rid of her.  Right now, it’s just a question of whether or not they’ll give her a heads up before sending her out or if they’ll blindside her.

So, in short, our final three is pretty much set.  It’ll be Turner, Taylor, and Monte.  If Turner wants to make it to the final two, he’s going to have to win HoH as Taylor and Monte are no longer hiding their showmance and they’ve both talked about how they’re looking forward to going to the final two together.

Big Brother 24 — About Tonight

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 15, 2022

Well, you can’t say that Brittany didn’t try.

Brittany tried to engineer the blindside of the season by voting to evict Taylor.  If Turner had also voted to evict Taylor (and Alyssa spent a lot of time trying to convince him this week), Taylor would have gone to jury.  Instead, Turner kept his word to Monte and voted to evict Alyssa.  This led to a 1-1 tie.  Monte broke the tie and evicted Alyssa.  Monte got out his target but he had to get blood on his hands to do it so he is not happy.

Taylor and Brittany tied during the HoH comp, which led to a tie-breaking question.  (I believe this was the first time they had to bring out the dry erase boards this season.)  Taylor and Brittany were asked to estimate the number of seconds that it took Brittany to win the veto.  Ironically, Taylor is the one who got closest to the correct time and she is now HoH.  That means Taylor is guaranteed to make it to the final three.

It’s also potentially very bad news for Brittany.  Brittany just made things worse for herself by lying to Monte and Taylor and trying to convince them that Turner was the vote to evict Alyssa.  Brittany is not a very good liar and neither Monte nor Taylor believe her.  They both have said that they noticed that, when she came out of the voting booth, Brittany wouldn’t make eye contact with either of them.

As far as who goes this week, it all depends on who wins the veto.  Things aren’t looking good for Brittany but everyone has also agreed that she would be easy to beat in a final two situation so, despite the vote and her subsequent lies, Brittany might still get carried to the finale.

The nominations are tomorrow!

Big Brother 24 — A New Showmance

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 13, 2022

Hi, everyone!

I guess the old saying is true.  It’s never too late for a showmance in the Big Brother house.  There’s only two weeks left but Taylor and Monte are taking advantage of them.  Last night, live feeders witnessed the two of them making out in the HoH room after lights out.  I can’t say that I’m particularly shocked, as the attraction between the two of them has been pretty obvious for a while.  That said, twitter is currently scandalized as everyone who was making plans for a Taylor/Joseph season of The Amazing Race are now wondering who Taylor is going to end up with after finale night.  I’m not sure why they think Taylor is definitely going to end with either one of them but whatever.  It’s Big Brother!

How will this effect the game?  Who knows?  This is happening pretty late in the game and both Monte and Taylor have spent a lot of time talking about how they’re not going to let any personal feelings factor into who they decided to take to the final two if they’re given that opportunity.  As far as I know, none of the other houseguests know about this showmance.  If Turner or Brittany find out, it’s easy to imagine them getting paranoid and voting Taylor out on Thursday.

As of now, though, Alyssa remains the target and the probable evictee.

Big Brother 24 — Week 10 Veto Meeting

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 12, 2022

Hi, everyone!

The veto meeting was held today and, to the surprise of no one, Brittany took herself off the block and Monte put Taylor up as a replacement.  Though she doesn’t fully realize it, Alyssa remains the target.  After the meeting, Monte told Taylor that he probably wouldn’t let Alyssa know until Wednesday night.  He’s apparently worried that Alyssa will cause drama in the House if she finds out too early.

As far as the future is concerned, Brittany and Taylor are hoping that they can win HoH on Thursday and take out Turner.  They know that if Turner wins HoH, he’ll put both of them on the block and he will probably target Brittany.  Either way, Monte appears to heading to the final three as absolutely nobody is talking about going after him.

We’ll see what happens on Thursday!

Big Brother 24 — Week 10 Veto Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 10, 2022

Hi, everyone!

So, the veto comp was held extremely early this morning.  From what I’ve heard from inside the house, it sounds like it was a timed comp and Monte didn’t even compete because he took too long come outside for the comp.  (Apparently, everyone was shocked by how early the competition occurred and Monte was still waking up and getting ready when everyone else was already outside.)  Alyssa and Turner both came close to winning the comp but, in the end, it was Brittany who won the golden power of veto.

So, what happens now?

Well, obviously, Brittany is going to use the veto on herself.  Once she comes down, Monte is either going to have to nominate Turner or Taylor as a replacement.  As of now, Monte seems to be leaning towards putting up Taylor.  Monte is pretty sure that he can convince both Brittany and Turner to vote to evict Alyssa.  Monte is thinking about jury management.  He believes that if Turner votes to evict Alyssa, that will keep Alyssa from voting for Turner to win the game if he and Monte end up in the final two together.

However, Brittany has been talking about how she feels that the only person she could beat in a final two would be Alyssa.  So, Brittany may not want to vote out Alyssa.  If Brittany votes to evict Taylor and Turner votes to evict Brittany, Monte will have to break the tie and he’ll end up getting blood on his hands.

We’ll see what happens.  Personally, I think it would be smarter to go after Turner but Monte seems to believe that Turner would be the easiest person for him to beat in the final two.  I imagine there will be a lot of campaigning tomorrow.

The veto ceremony is on Monday!

Big Brother 24 — Week 10 Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 9, 2022

Hi, everyone!

So, the fallout from last night’s double eviction is continuing to fall.  Last night, while the feeds were down, Monte won HoH.

He just made his nominations earlier today and he put both Alyssa and Brittany on the block.  He’s told both of them not to worry but, in a conversation with Taylor, he said that he was hoping to get Alyssa out this week because he feels that Alyssa has the most friends on the jury.  For her part, Taylor said that she would rather evict Brittany because she feels that Brittany is bigger threat to win the final few competitions.

Personally, I think it’s stupid not to go after Turner.  Obviously, if the veto is used, Turner will be the replacement nominee but why not just nominate him to begin with?  At this point, everyone in the House will be competing in all of the remaining comps.  So, backdooring someone is kind of pointless.  Of everyone in the House, Turner could be the biggest threat to win the game because no one expected him to make it to the end or be as strong of a player as he turned out to be.  Jasmine will obviously never vote for him.  Joseph may not like Turner but he also seems like the type who would set aside his feelings and vote based on gameplay.

Anyway, the veto is tomorrow!  We’ll see what happens.

Big Brother 24 — About The Double Eviction

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 8, 2022


Tonight’s double eviction episode of Big Brother was two hours long.  The first hour was pretty much filler.  Even the first jury segment felt a bit scripted.  (I have never felt that the jury scenes are spontaneous.)  I did find it interesting that, in the jury house, Jasmine no longer limps and her accent is no longer out of control.

When the show finally did get around to the voting, Terrance went first.  There was no shock there.  It was a unanimous vote and Terrance left without bothering to hug or talk to any of the other houseguests.  Terrance wasn’t happy about being voted out but he really had no one but himself to blame.  He played one of the least impressive games in recent Big Brother history.

As for the double eviction, Turner won HoH and, from the minute that he nominated Brittany and Alyssa, it was pretty obvious that he was planning on backdooring Michael.  Michael fought hard for the veto but Monte was the one who won it.  Monte used the veto.  Michael went on the block.

And Michael proceeded to lose it.

Seriously, for someone who has previously always been able to remain calm under pressure, he lost it as soon as he had to take his seat at the front of the living room.  He was trembling.  He had tears in his eyes.  He had to know that he was a huge target but I guess he had never mentally prepared himself for the fact that he might actually end up getting voted out at some point.

In his pre-vote speech, Michael basically attacked Monte and Turner and then said that Brittany couldn’t be trusted.  Brittany, who was already a nervous wreck, looked like she was about to have a panic attack as Michael spoke.  Michael attempted to convince Taylor and Alyssa to keep him.  It didn’t work.  By a vote of 3-0, Michael was evicted.

And, like Terrance, Michael walked out without hugging and talking to anyone.  He told the houseguests to remain seated because he had something to say and then he ran out the door.  Considering how successful Michael had been up to that point, it was not the best way for him to leave the house.  To me, it came across as being petty and childish.  One thing about being a competitor is realizing that you’re not going to win all the time and being a good sport when you do lose.

When talking to Julie, Michael said that he betrayed Brittany because it was his only shot at staying in the House.  Michael laughed it off.  Meanwhile, as the show ended, Brittany was still sobbing.

So, Terrance and Michael are gone.  Taylor, Monte, Alyssa, Turner, and Brittany are the final five.  We’ve got two more weeks to go.  To be honest, I think Turner might end up winning this if he can make it to the final two.

The HoH comp should be later tonight!
