Well, dear readers, the end is upon us. In just a few days, we’ll have a winner. Whether that winner will be determined by a bitter jury or legitimate consideration of the final two’s gameplay is still in the air. But still, aside from the last few weeks of predictable gameplay thanks to Level Six’s ridiculously strong hold on this house, BB20 shaped up to be one of the best seasons I’ve ever seen. We’ve got a final three that (mostly) deserves to be there, and at least a glimmer of hope that a jury member or two will vote with their head and not their heart. So who will prevail and take this shows twentieth $500,000 prize? We’ll soon find out. Until then, let’s take a look back at this past week of game, and see who will battle it out for the money and the glory.
Tyler led Brett to believe that he was going to backdoor Angela in the double eviction. I’m not going to lie, that was very satisfying to watch, and I’m just so happy that Level Six FINALLY took one of their own out.
Tyler tries to get JC to trust him again by just saying “Trust Me” eight thousand times. Because if you say it enough times, eventually the other person is just going to break down, right?
Sam apologizes to Angela for calling her a bitch behind her back when she was talking to Tyler. I don’t know why I think this is hilarious, but I do. Also, part of me wants to believe she didn’t really mean the apology.
Tyler tries to smooth things over with JC, it’s not working. I can’t believe it took THIS LONG for JC to realize that maybe Tyler’s got other things going on behind his back, but at least it happened? Like at this point, the wall is finally up and it shouldn’t down again.
They obviously redecorated the hacker room for the HOH comp. Which I can now only assume is some sort of multipurpose basement? I still don’t understand how the production value is so much better than the other 99% of the show, though.
You have to pay attention to the audio clues for each question in this comp, but they’re overlapping each other too much, and it’s impossible. Honestly, how the fuck are the houseguests even getting these answers right?
Angela is the new HOH. GODDAMMIT. What’s worse is that Sam, and a shift in power, was so close. I’m running out of boredom gifs, you guys.
Angela and Tyler tell each other that they’re in love. Meh.
Bebe Rexha gives a private concert for the houseguests. I get that this is a nice break for the houseguests/probably some good promo for Bebe Rexha, but I’m pretty sure it’s been like sixteen years since they had to do something like this. I’m getting hardcore BB3/random Sheryl Crow concert in the backyard flashbacks.
Angela nominates Sam and JC for eviction. What did I JUST SAY about running out of gifs?
It’s a special Wednesday eviction in addition to the usual Thursday one. Which would normally make me super happy, except for the fact that…
Julie keeps tacking the M-word onto her name. Okay, raise your hand if you think she’s going to announce this is her last season during finale night. Because she already quit The Talk this week, and she’s like quadrupling down on this name thing, and there’s no way that can be anything good for her at CBS, right?
JC is sad that he got nominated after almost making it to the end without going on the block. Meanwhile, I’m sad that he made it this far in the game without doing anything.
Kaycee wins the veto. At this point, do they even take it off her neck? Isn’t it just part of her now?
Kaycee doesn’t use the veto. You know, she could have made a power move and made Angela put up Tyler, give herself a few bonus points with the jury. But no. That would have been too interesting. And too much of a smart game move.
“Please feed the fish. I don’t want them to die.” Sam taking care of the important things in her last plea speech.
Sam is evicted from the house. It’s good that the season ends on Wednesday; otherwise that house would be a straight up disaster zone without her.
“Tyler always said that he’d have my back in a final two, and JC’s annoying.” -Sam on why she’s surprised it was a unanimous vote. I mean, this is Big Brother, so obviously everyone’s lying. But seriously, she’s not wrong about JC.
JC is the new HOH. And I can’t even be happy that it’s not going to be an all Level Six final three because it’s fucking JC that’s derailing it.
JC nominates Angela and Tyler for eviction. Okay, I know I said I couldn’t even be happy about this, because it’s JC as HOH, but the distinct possibility of Angela being evicted does make me a little excited.
“You’ve just been a bitch to me.” Look, I’m not a fan of JC, but I really need every reason for every nomination from here on out to be like his reason for nominating Tyler.
Julie tries to make F.O.U.T.T.E. happen again in her introduction to the jury house footage. Like I didn’t already have enough reasons to be super pissed with her.
“I’m still not as big of an idiot as you are.” -Bayleigh to Faysal when he tries to say that the mistakes that landed them in jury are all on the same level. I’m not saying that these people didn’t fuck up at some point, but I am saying that only one of them openly targeted their alliance member and sent them packing. Think about your choices.
Brett enters the jury house and everybody groans. Same, everybody else. Hard same.
“They’re cleaning up their own mess now!” If you thought Sam was going to greet the other jurors with anything other than this, did you really even know Sam at all?
Kaycee wins the veto. So it took her until the back half of the season, but Kaycee fucking dominated these comps. It seems like the jury house is seriously considering voting for her if she makes final two, and honestly? I wouldn’t be mad if she won.
Kaycee evicts Angela. So JC’s happy, but I think if she really thought about her game, she would have gone for Tyler. It would have been impressive to be the one to get such an amazing player out of the game, and…you know…everyone hates Angela, so really, who would vote for her?
What do you think about how this week played out? Who do you hope wins the final HOH of the season? And who do you want to see take the $500,000 prize Wednesday night? Let’s chat in the comments.
