I don’t know about you, but I’m kind of getting sick of this whole Level Six controls the house thing. It was a lot more fun when I didn’t automatically know what was going to happen as soon as the new HOH was crowned. Just once, I’d like someone else to take the reins, get a good underdog story going, have Level Six sweating for a change. Alas, that is not what we get this week. And it’s not what we’re going to get next week, except maybe for the double eviction coming up. So I guess I’m just going to sit here and wait for the day to finally come when Level Six starts taking each other out.
Until then, let’s dive in to this past week of game.
During the Battle Back, Faysal tells Scottie that JC was in his ear when he was HOH. Not that Scottie’s going to do anything about JC, because no one does anything about JC (including production every time he violates a houseguest, but I digress). But good to know.
It’s one of those spinning endurance HOH comps. Place your bets now on who pukes first and makes the thought of falling down extremely upsetting for the rest of the houseguests.
Hi, it’s still amusing as hell when JC falls during HOH comps. That’s it. That’s all I have to say.
“Last time I was this dizzy, I was four fingers deep into a bottle of jug wine.” Um, Sam? Can I come party with you?
Okay, who had Kaycee for first to barf? The emoji censors were a nice touch.
Tyler wins HOH. But here’s the thing: he shouldn’t have. A few days after the HOH comp took place, people started realizing there were times that Tyler didn’t have his feet on the disc, which was a clear violation of the rules. But by the time anyone noticed, almost the entire week of game had already been played. This HOH should have been Haleigh’s, and she was rewarded with the chopping block. There should at least be some sort of penalty in play.
Scottie tries to convince Tyler that he’s not going to work with Haleigh. Not that that’s going to save you, but good try?
JC tries to get Brett worked up about Tyler and Angela’s showmance. Which Brett takes back to Tyler, who is definitely not here for JC’s tactics. Maybe you should, I don’t know…do something about it? Honestly, why is everyone in this house putting up with him?
Tyler nominates Haleigh and Scottie for eviction. And it’s just so…boring? Like, no shit, that was obviously going to happen.
Tyler tells Scottie he’s a pawn. Yeah, let’s come back to this, because maybe you shouldn’t have done that if you didn’t want a headache this week.
Tyler’s serving Fabio realness when Sam straightens his hair. This reminds me of the time when a couple of my friends got the idea to try to straighten my best friend’s insanely curly hair during a sleepover in high school, and we ended up breaking the straightener. At least Sam’s attempt worked better on Tyler.
“I look like a soccer mom.” -Tyler. Okay, that works, too.
Everybody keeps busting in on Tyler and Angela alone in the HOH room, and they’re both super annoyed by it. And honestly, good, because if Angela seemed remotely like a good person, I might be on board with this showmance, but she doesn’t, so I’m not.
Haleigh decides to try to sever her game ties with Faysal. I mean, honestly, she should have done that while he was still in the game, but better late than never?
Kaycee wins the veto. Actually, I’m kind of impressed? That’s twice in a row, and this comp looked difficult.
Scottie tells Haleigh that Tyler told him he’s the pawn. Yeah, maybe that’s why he wasn’t giving you a straight answer about who’s the target?
Kaycee doesn’t use the veto. Which, again, is boring because what else was someone from Level Six going to do?
“Why don’t you ever just believe me?” Is something Tyler actually said to Haleigh when he tries to deny telling Scottie that he was the pawn. Um, maybe because it’s Big Brother? Maybe that’s why?
JC keeps pressing Tyler about his showmance with Angela, and about putting Kaycee and Angela up. I’m just waiting for all these final two deals and the showmance to explode in his face. It’s incredible how little time people put into considering jury perception, ESPECIALLY with how many bitter juries have decided the winners the last few seasons.
Scottie tells Brett that Rockstar thinks he’s a slimebag. Oh cool, I didn’t realize Rockstar and I were the same person.
They bring back Derrick from BB16 for game commentary. Look, he was an insanely good player, but I just hate when they do this. It must have been a slow week in the house to give so much time to this segment. I’m not even paying attention, I don’t care, just give me drama or go home.
Scottie is evicted from the house by ANOTHER unanimous and moves back to jury. Well, that was quick. Did he even have a chance to unpack?
Curious about what Scottie said in his last plea speech? I know I was, considering like 90% of it was censored by the ten second delay. Thankfully, this tweet from one of my favorite spoiler accounts came across my feed. His speech was definitely…colorful?
Kaycee is the new HOH. I kind of hate that I pretty much know exactly how this week is going to play out because of that, but I also kind of love that she beat out Brett by one second. I really can’t with him, you guys.
Next week is the first double eviction of the season. Oh my god, FINALLY. Like, they realize this show ends in three weeks, right? There’s SEVEN PEOPLE left in the house. It should not have taken this long to get our Big Brother Christmas.
What did you think of Tyler’s second HOH? Are you as hungry as I am for a shift in power? Let’s chat in the comments.
