This week was going to plan, until Nick was able to win the POV and remove himself from the block. The options were limited for Holly because she is working with half the house, Kat, and Cliff has earned two weeks of safety from his deal with six shooters last week.. This left only Nicole and Jess, but either of those would be too enticing to possibly send home.. Holly decided using Kat as the pawn was the easiest way to send Sam out the door.
Christie and Tommy are serving their poison ivy punishment and to be honest, other than the fact they must stay inside until Tuesday at midnight, it looks like a fairly easy task. They are using their limitations to their advantage and talking with houseguest during the day inside while their alliance is out in the back yard.
I think it's an uphill climb for Sam to stay this week, but he may be able to do it. Sam has more information, but I'm not sure there is anything that he can do with it. He plans on outing Christie's game, but his sights are set on the wrong people to inform. He also has Nick working against him by telling the six shooters about Sam's plan. Kat is very complacent! She offered herself up as a pawn to begin with. Wouldn't it be something if Kat was blindsided by the house after she was so confident she would stay.
Cliff's HOH took a really sharp turn south last week. At the beginning of his reign he looked to be finally going after the six shooters. After Michie won the Power of Veto and took himself down, he caved to the pressure of the sneaky six and put Bella on the block for eviction. This leaves Christie in the house with a power.
Bella campaigned, but when you've wronged the entire side of the house that you need to rally votes from, it's hard to find them. She left the house on Thursday night and talked to Julie.
The houseguests immediately went into the next HOH competition. Julie gave us a heads up that it would be an endurance, but this was a new challenge. Unlike most of the previous wall competition, there was no water and no deals made. Holly and Analyse were the last two hanging. They decided to hang out another hour instead of making a "deal". They are supposed to be on the same side, but the lack of common sense never seems to amaze me with this cast.
Holly pulled out the win, but we are all sure that Jackson will forcefully make most of the decisions this week. A lot of his alliance is very suspicious of him the last week and a half. With the power left in the game, will Christie use it to backdoor Jackson?
As we all expected, the Camp Comeback room has turned into the official Have Not Room. Compared to years past, this room is the Ritz. The Have Not sufferers for the week are Sam, Tommy, Christie, and MICHIE. Three will be perfectly fine, Michie is going to go crazy. This guy he's the most in the house hands down and without the extra calories and luxury of a nice comfy bed he will probably crumble quickly.
Cliff also made his nominations for the week this afternoon. He played a very risky move and went against the house consensus. Nick and Bella were the obvious choses for the week, but Cliff saw the benefit of putting up two of the six shooters so that there is a possibility of more divide between the two sides moving forward. Michie and Jack are sitting in the nominations chairs, but there are two powers and a veto tomorrow that could switch up the picks. It's risky, but if it pays off it will definitely be a huge move and benefit Cliff, Nicole, and Jessica moving forward. This also makes Christie and Tommy have to expose their hands. Veto draw and competition is tomorrow, veto meeting on Monday. Either way, big move by Cliff Hogg III. He's had a hell of a 24 hours in the house.
Last night's eviction was definitely drama filled. The six shooters were able to finally keep and secret and cast their votes to evict Cliff, while blindsiding Nick and Bella. Cliff was sent to Camp Comeback, but not for long. The four evicted houseguests were taken to the backyard to battle back with their life in the game on the line. Three minutes was all it took for Cliff to solidify his place back in the house.
After the battle back, the house was in chaos. Nick and Bella were confused and mad at the 6. Nicole was in shock! Cliff was disappointed that he was the player sent out of the house. The outsiders wondered why they were left on the outside. Sam was the real kicker in the middle of it all. He's loyal to too many people and no one is truly loyal to him. Kemi was, but he evicted her out of the house.
Late last night, the remaining houseguest competed in an HOH competition. And Clifford Hogg III pulled out another victory and has the six shooters shaking in their boots. They have talked a lot about the people they have been targeting being paranoid, but now that they are in the cross fire they are nervous. Nominations are later today and most fans think Have Nots will start this week as well! All I know is that Nicole looks to be safe another week after being public enemy number one last week. Things change so quickly in the game, blink and the target shifts.
We all saw Michie cast a rogue vote last eviction. Like myself, many people knew he would try to pin it on someone else. He was never Kemi's biggest fan. Because Nick won HOH, his target for pinning the vote changed from Nick and Bella to Nicole. Nicole has been insistent to the rest of the house that she was not the voter, but there are some that still believe that she voted for Jessica and also has the power.
We've already seen so much happen this week that was not shown in the episode. There was a huge blowup between the previous "Black Widows" alliance because quite frankly Bella can't shut her mouth. She's exposed every single alliance she has been a part of, including spilling Gr8ful to Sam. She is now playing in total damage control mode and it's obvious to the other house guests, as well as Nick, that she is the biggest problem in the house.
Jessica and Cliff are on the block, I thoroughly expect him to backdoor someone. Most likely Nicole. The votes will be tight, but if she keeps playing like she is she can get the votes from the Six Shooters to stay.
Last nights eviction went as planned and Kemi was evicted and sent to Camp Comeback. There were a few surprises though! During her eviction speech, Kemi took the opportunity to expose both Nick and Bella. It wasn't news to anyone, but I think it works in Kemi's favor should she be the one to return next week. She will gain favor with Gr8ful for targeting Nick and Bella. It also bodes well for Nicole who assured Sis, Holly, and Christie that Nick and Bella were here targets.
Directly after Kemi's eviction, the houseguests went to the backyard to find out who the next HOH would be, but not before Kemi and Nick exchanges words. In a total "Crapshoot Competition", Nick pulled out a win and certainly he needed it after all of the talk about evicting Nick or Bella last week. Gr8ful painted on their brightest smiles and acted as if they were so happy for Nick. Bella and Kemi fought later, following the HOH Comp. Bella is now doing major damage control.
I expect to Nick to be too scared to put up his original 8 plus Sam, but with another power from the Whacktivity Comp coming into play today, anything can happen.
It's hard to keep secrets when you spill your entire alliance's next moves every morning during your pretend talk show. This week the Gr8tful alliance heard Cliff having a Cliff Notes chat with the camera. Unfortunately for Cliff, his voice projected enough to let them hear everything about his game, his alliances, as well as future plays down the line. Word of advice, don't update the live feeders. We already know what's going on; a whole lot more than you do.
Jessica and Kemi are still on the block after Sam won the veto and chose to not play it. The votes shifted all week and yesterday looked to sway into Kemi's favor. But because everyone is playing the "Jack Show" it ultimately came down to what was best for Jack to move forward in the game. The house is set on evicting Kemi and shipping her off to Camp Comeback for the week.
This Gr8teful alliance is a mess and there is so much distrust that I don't see them sticking together past Camp Comeback. Nick and Bella are in deep trouble this week, everyone wants them gone. The 8 won't take a shot at them, but the rest of the house has nothing to lose.
Eviction tonight! Let's hope someone wins and throws up some of the people that feel like their ride is going to be smooth to the end. We can also hope that Cliff wins and his family tells him to stop talking to the cameras in his HOH letter.
Up until the episode tonight, the Whacktivity winner was still a mystery. This week the players in the competition were Jack, Jackson, Tommy, Holly, and Sam. They were to match snakes in several different containers with the snakes spread throughout the backyard. Everyone was impressive and had respectable scored, but the winner by a long shot was Jack. His power is a veto redraw, very lackluster after last weeks power of renomination.
This week we saw Kemi and Jessica hit the block. Each are handling it very differently. Kemi is very composed and has her game face on. Jessica has let the nomination get to her and is putting a larger target on her back with the paranoia and complaining. Both are touching the block because of Bella. Before nominations, Bella exposed a budding alliance including both called the "Black Widows". Jack took the information and ran with it, even though Kemi was a target for him since the beginning of the game.
Veto was also played yesterday with not only the golden power of veto at stake, but a trip to Fiji. The houseguests got the exciting news about the trip from BB20 Houseguests Swaggy C, Bailey, Winston, and Brett. It's still unknown what the competition was, but it resulted in Sam winning the veto and trip and Jackson spraining his ankle. There is a new episode on Wednesday and we will see how it all unfolds.
Today started off with Cliff and David having a long discussion before the other houseguests woke up. Cliff used all the information against David and told a few members of Gr8ful that David was scheming and making him uncomfortable with his questioning. Michie made some really controversial comments late last night and this morning about David and it led to him being scolded in the diary room for the way he was speaking on the live feeds.
Before the lashing that Michie got in the diary room, he ended things with Kat. She took it pretty well! I know that Michie and Holly want to distance themselves to save their games, but it's almost better for Kathryn to be disassociated with them. Time will tell if her paranoia will be better without her original alliance, but her position in the game stands to improve without those two. If we never have to here "Are you bitches conspiring against me?" again, it will be too soon.
The houseguest also built a slip and slide in the backyard; all the feeders were ready for it to be Christmas 2.0. Thankfully, no one was injured and it was great to see a break from the game on the holiday. Nominations tomorrow! Early predictions are Kemi and Jessica for the block, but things change by the hour.
Like we all expected, Ovi was voted out tonight. By a 12-0 vote he was sent packing... to the upstairs bedroom now called Camp Comeback. There's a first for everything! Big Brother has taken a page from Survivor's Redemption Island and is now allowing the first four evicted houseguest to live among the house before there is a buy back. This is huge! It makes blindsiding people awkward, it's also great for the evictees to keep their game relationships without too much game passing by.
Also, David walked through the front door to finally get his chance at living in the house. He was gone in the first 3 hours during his time in the house. He will be living the next three weeks with Ovi in a very "rustic" room upstairs. They can not compete in competitions, but everyday life they will be at the center of.
I am so excited for this twist. I'm tuning into the live feeds now to see how everything is going to play out. How do you guys think BB Comeback will change up the game?
