Big Brother 24 — Back From The Holiday

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 6, 2022

Hi, everyone!  I hope that everyone reading this had a good holiday weekend!

If you didn’t have a good holiday, you can at least take some comfort in that you still probably had a better time than Terrance has been having in the House.  Yesterday, the houseguests gathered for the veto meeting and, to no one’s surprise, Michael did not use the veto.  Terrance and Alyssa remain on the block.

Who, of those two, are going to the jury?  Things are getting close to the finale so there’s been a lot of conversations going on about who the houseguests think that they can beat in a final two situation.  Interestingly enough, Taylor, Brittany, and Monte all seem to think that Alyssa would be unbeatable due to her social game and the fact that she has a lot of friends on the jury.  I think they’re overestimating Alyssa.  Alyssa’s done very little in the House and spent most of the game being carried by Kyle.  But, even though they seem to think that Alyssa is a bigger threat to win, everyone seems to be determined vote out Terrance first and then Alyssa.  I think the logic is that they can still get rid of Alyssa whenever they want because Alyssa is so bad at comps that they don’t have to worry about her becoming HoH or winning the veto.  That’s a dangerous logic to follow because you never know what could happen but, that said, Alyssa has yet to come close to winning anything so I understand what they’re thinking.

Of course, the main reason that Terrance is going is that he just gets on everyone’s nerves.  He’s been complaining nonstop this week and I think the houseguests are just tired of listening to it.

So, Terrance is going first.  Thursday is a double eviction so it wouldn’t shock me if Alyssa immediately follows him.  Strategically, it would make more sense to get rid of Michael when they have the opportunity but Michael is a smart player and, along with targeting Terrance this week, he’s also been smoothing things over with the other houseguests and remaking alliances with the former Leftovers.  Michael could very well sneak his way to the end.

We’ll see what happens!

Big Brother 24 — Week 9 Veto Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 4, 2022

Hi, everyone!

I’m sorry for the late update.  The veto ran late last night and then, today and this afternoon, I’ve been busy with both family and the bad weather.

Anyway, the important thing is that Michael not only won HoH this week but he also won the power of veto!  So, Michael has all of the power this week and that’s bad news for Terrance.  Terrance is on the block, along with Alyssa.  Terrance knows that he is Michael’s target and he’s been complaining about it ever since he was nominated.  He keeps saying that his situation is hopeless and that he doesn’t have any respect for how the other people in the House played the game.  If Terrance is trying to get people to feel sorry for him, it’s backfiring.  People are getting tired of Terrance whining all the time.

Terrance is specifically being targeted because Michael feels that Terrance is so incompetent that everyone else in the House will automatically want to carry him to the final two because they know he’ll be easy to beat.  By getting rid of Terrance, Michael will be leaving a lot of strong players in the House but he’ll also be getting rid of the player who, in a final three situation, most players would chose to take to the finale with them.

Michael and Brittany have been discussing what to do with the veto.  Even though they’ve been going through scenarios of what would happen if the switched the target over to someone like Monte or Turner, it sounds like they’re still determined to get Terrance out this week.  They’re both concerned that they’ll be targeted next week, unless Brittany wins HoH.  However, what they don’t know is that this Thursday is the double eviction.  Who knows what could happen!

For now, though, Terrance is definitely the target.

Big Brother 24 — Week 9 Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 2, 2022

Hi, everyone!

Well, we’re coming into the final weeks of Big Brother.  There’s only 7 people left in the House.  After Thursday, there will only be 5.  There’s really not much strategizing left to be done.  It’s all just going to come down to who wins HoH and the veto.

For this week, Michael is the HoH.  Earlier today, he announced his nominations.

Alyssa and Terrance are on the block.

Terrance is Michael’s target but, depending on how the veto goes, I could easily see the target shifting to Alyssa.

The veto is tomorrow so we’ll see what happens.

Big Brother 24 — About Tonight’s Eviction

by Lisa Marie Bowman on September 1, 2022

Hi, everyone!

There were no surprises tonight as far as the eviction was concerned.  Terrance considered voting to keep Kyle but changed his mind once it became apparent that his vote wouldn’t change the outcome.  Kyle asked Alyssa to vote him out.  Obviously, Michael, Brittany, and Monte weren’t going to keep him.  By a vote of 5-0, Kyle was evicted from the House.

Kyle’s main concern was that the audience would boo him.  As far as I can tell, he did not get booed when he left the House but there wasn’t much applause either.  It honestly sounded like production turned off the audience microphones at the last minute so who knows.

Kyle is gone and the game continues.  Michael and Brittany have been on everyone’s radar for a while but Michael just won HoH.  (Michael is a challenge beast!)  So, both he and probably Brittany are going to be safe this week (or at least, they will be until Thursday).  Terrance is convinced that Michael will be nominating him for eviction.  We’ll find out tomorrow when the nominations are announced!

Zingbot should be dropping by sometime tonight.  He won’t be on the feeds but he will be on Sunday’s episode.

Finally, this upcoming Thursday is another double eviction.

There’s only about 3 more weeks left in the season.  It’ll be over before we know it.

Big Brother 24 — Set In Stone

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 30, 2022

Hi, everyone!

Well, the fallout from the veto meeting is still ongoing but what thing is definitely set in stone.  Kyle will be leaving the house on Thursday.  Monte, Michael, and Brittany are planning on voting to evict him and there’s no way that any of them are going to be swayed.

Yesterday, immediately after the veto meeting, Terrance and Monte did have a conversation in which Terrance actually did try to convince Monte that it would be better to keep Kyle in the House so that Kyle could supposedly grow as a person.  (I think Terrance was more concerned with missing out on a chance to evict Taylor.)  Monte put on a pretty good act of agreeing with Terrance.  He even fooled me a little.  But, almost immediately after talking to Terrance, Monte went to Brittany and Michael and told them what Terrance had said and, most importantly, Monte affirmed that Kyle is going to have to do his growing in the jury house.

Kyle knows that he’s going.  He and Alyssa have “broken up.”  He’s been telling people not to trust Michael so Kyle’s plan appears to be to sabotage Michael on his way out.  Of course, Michael was on most people’s lists even before Kyle’s game blew up.  Monte has told Turner that, if he wins HoH, his number one target will be Michael.

The only question right now is whether or not the vote to evict Kyle will be unanimous.  Will Alyssa vote to keep him in the House even though they’ve broken up?  Will Terrance go through with his plan to give Kyle a sympathy vote?  And how will Kyle handle talking to Julie?  Earlier today, he told Brittany that he’s terrified that he’ll be booed when he steps out of the Big Brother House.

We’ll find out on Thursday!

Big Brother 24 — Veto Meeting Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 29, 2022

It’s been a wild two days in the Big Brother House.

In short, Kyle’s game has completely collapsed.

Knowing that Kyle had been pushing Turner to target him this week, Michael blew up Kyle’s game.  He told everyone in the House about all of the times that Kyle had talked about betraying his various alliances.  He also let everyone know that Kyle had approached both him and Brittany about targeting all of the black players in the House so that they couldn’t form a “Cookout 2.0.”

Upon learning all of this, Terrance revealed to Monte that Kyle was the one who had pushed him to target Joseph and he also revealed that Kyle had totally sold out the Leftovers while they were living on the outside.  With everyone in the House now turning against Kyle, Turner felt that he had no choice but to put Kyle up as a replacement nominee.

Last night, Kyle had a meltdown, saying that his life was now over because Michael was saying that Kyle wanted to target all of the black players.  Fearful that he would get called a racvist during the veto meeting, Kyle told Alyssa that he wanted to self-evict.  He then disappeared into the diary room for over an hour.

Kyle did eventually leave the Diary Room so production apparently talked him down and convinced him to stay.  At the veto meeting today, Michael used the veto on Brittany and Turner put Kyle on the block.

So, is Kyle’s game over?  Probably.  Michael and Brittany will definitely be voting top evict him.  Alyssa will presumably vote to keep him.  Monte and Terrance both put a lot of pressure on Turner to put Kyle on the block.  However, Kyle apparently apologized to Monte and Terrance for targeting them and he said that he realized he had let race influence his thinking.  After the meeting, Monte and Terrance were discussing whether or not they wanted to evict Kyle, with both of them saying that they felt that Kyle could probably benefit more by staying in the House and learning than from being evicted.  Of course, what I think Monte and Terrance were actually saying is that both of them feel like they would probably lose to Taylor and this might be their last chance to get her out of the House.

That said, Monte seemed to ultimately be leaning towards voting out Kyle.  Terrance seems to be more of a question mark but I have a feeling he’ll go with the majority as far as this vote goes.  If nothing else, I imagine production would probably prefer to get rid of Kyle now, rather than have to deal with all the controversy that will come if he stays over Taylor.

We’ll see what happens!

Big Brother 24 — Week 8 Veto Results

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 28, 2022

Hi, everyone!

The veto ran late last night and I actually fell asleep before the feeds returned.  However, this morning, I woke up and I discovered that Michael won the veto!

This is a huge deal because Turner’s entire plan this week was to backdoor Michael.  That is now not going to happen and Michael has also told both Turner and Brittany that he is going to use the veto to take Brittany off the block.

Who will be the replacement nominee?  Last night, Michael told Brittany that he would try to talk Turner into putting Kyle up as a replacement.  Meanwhile, Turner told Michael that he would probably put either Alyssa or Terrance up as a replacement.  But Turner also made it clear, to Michael, that his target is Taylor.  Michael told Turner that he was fine with Taylor going.

Personally, I suspect that Monte will be the replacement, just to make sure that he doesn’t vote to keep Taylor.  But we’ll find out for sure tomorrow.

Big Brother 24 — Week 8 Nominations

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 26, 2022

Hi all!

Well, things have changed in the Big Brother House.  The Leftover Alliance is pretty much over.  Now that Joseph is gone, the members of that alliance are focusing more on their individual games and who they have to get out so that they can have a chance to win.  The new Kyle, Turner, Terrance, and Alyssa alliance now appears to be the strongest in the House, even if the rest of the Leftovers don’t really know it.  The people who were inside last week don’t seem to realize just how much the outside people bonded.  The Afterparty Alliance (as the outdoor people named themselves) have even kept the Leftovers from discovering that Kyle sold out the Leftover alliance.  They’ve insisted that Joseph was voted out because he was trying to make too many deals.  Taylor and Monte, at the very least, suspect that they’re not getting the entire story but I don’t think they understand just how committed the After Party alliance is to sticking together.

Last night, Turner won HoH.  Today, he nominated Taylor and Brittany for eviction.  However, his plan is to backdoor Michael.  Turner is trying to blindside Michael by leading him to believe that Taylor is his number one target.  However, Turner is not as slick as some of the other former HoHs.  (For one thing, he also told Michael that he wasn’t going to put Brittany on the block.)  Michael seems to suspect that Turner is planning on backdooring him and I imagine that, if he gets a chance to play for the veto, he’ll be going hard for it, both to protect himself and also save Brittany.

The veto is tomorrow!

Big Brother 24 — Tonight’s Double Eviction

by Lisa Marie Bowman on August 25, 2022

The results of tonight’s double eviction really weren’t surprising.

The Inside Group evicted Jasmine on a vote of 2-0.  They all actually told Jasmine that they were going to vote to evict her last night so Jasmine was not as surprised as she pretended to be when she talked to Julie.  And though Michael, Brittany, Monte, and Taylor may been nice in their goodbye messages, that was largely just jury management.  They were all glad to see Jasmine go.

The Outside Group evicted Joseph, again on a vote of 2-0.  In his Diary Room interviews, Turner said he was joining Terrance, Alyssa, and Kyle as a member of their new alliance, the Afterparty.  Honestly, I think Turner will go with whoever has the power after the next HoH comp.

When the two groups were reunited in the House, it was a low-key reunion.  I think everyone knew Jasmine would be gone and everyone also knew that Joseph would probably be targeted by Terrance.  What the Inside Group doesn’t know is that Kyle betrayed them all.  Talking to Michael and Brittany, Kyle and Alyssa made it sound as if Terrance acted totally on his own in deciding to target Joseph.

Taylor is upset but those who were expecting her to start demanding answers were disappointed.  She told Monte that, upon seeing Joseph gone, she is now emotionally exhausted.

Assuming Turner was being honest about switching, there are now four Leftovers and Four Afterpartiers in the House so this next HoH is going to be very important.  There’s only a few more weeks left in the game.  The feeds are down for the HoH comp so we’ll see what happens when they come back.
