I missed blogging last year, but my life was just too crazy! I loved BB20 and I am hopeful this season will bring the same spirited energy that last years players did. Nonetheless, I am so excited to be back and talking BB with my fans and friends!
As some of you know, I love Big Brother! I discovered this crazy show in Season 6, thanks to my Grandma, but I have been hooked ever since. It started by watching the edited version on CBS; I then found After Dark by Season 8 and by Season 13 I was hooked on the live feeds, I needed spoilers, and wanted everyone I knew to love the show was much as I do.. Most peoples summers are spent on the water, vacationing, and enjoying the beautiful weather; I'm planning my days around HOH comps, Veteos, and Live Evictions.
I can't wait to see how this season shakes out, "but first" let's talk about the brand new houseguests that we get the pleasure of watching play this game all summer! As always, these are based on the Pre-Season Invterviews on CBS All-Access with Jeff Schroeder (BB11&13). I'm usually widely wrong until the live feeds start, but here are my predictions. Don't forget to comment yours below and let me know who your favorites are!
Holly Allen, 31
Los Angeles, CA
Los Angeles Wine Safari Guide by way of Lander, Wyoming. My hopes aren't extremely high for Holly. Her BB knowledge is limited, she wasn't even able to pick a favorite. She's an obvious recruit of the show, but I think she will adapt rather quickly. I see her becoming part of a large alliance, falling into a showmance, and making it to jury before she is booted out of the front door.
David Alexander, 29
David has definitely never seen the show. I would guess he is another recruit this season. He claims to have a gift of gab; that usually gets you into trouble in the BB house. He will need to align with a strong group to reign him in if he wants to stick around. I do think if he can be a good listener and limit his game talk in the house, he's got a great chance. He looks like he could fair well in a physical competition.
Nicole Anthony, 24
Long Island, NY
Getting strong player vibes from Nicole! She's smart! Her plan is to hide that from the other houseguest with her quirky personality. She has a lot of knowledge of the game and if she plays her cards right she will go far. She may not be as physical as some of the other houseguests, but I wouldn't be surprised to see her pull out crucial competition wins. I'm keeping my eye on her and can't wait to watch her fool all of them.
Tommy Bracco, 28
Staten Island, NY
I LOVE TOMMY! He's already one of my favorites! Do I think he wins, no. I think he is going to be very competitive in these comps without being a threat. There are some bigger alpha males that will rank over Tommy and it will keep him in the game longer. I predict him as a jury member who clashes with a few members of the cast week 2.
Kathryn Dunn, 29
My guess is that Kathryn has no idea what HOH and POV stand for. She's a clear recruit who hasn't even watched the show. Her extremely limited knowledge will put her lightyears behind superfans in the house. She is an aspiring social media follower and I expect her to ruffle feathers to gain internet fame.
Kemi Faknule, 25
Kemi stated her favorite players were Jessica Graf (BB19) and Rachel Reilly (BB12&13). If she's anything like these two personalities we are in for quite a summer. Vostrous players tend to fair poorly in the house, but I'm hopeful for Kemi. I see her as part of a girls alliance; having to fight for her safety after the men find out.
Jessica Milagros, 30ish
Oak Park, Illinois
Jessica gives me Sabrina (BBCAN2) vibes. Her social game will be her strongest selling point if she touches the final two. She's a long time fan of the game with knowledge of how to play it. She will want to lay low, but probably be targeted early. She will escape eviction early and scoot by until later in the game. I see her being able to use strong social relationships to keep herself in over other physical threats.
Cliff Hogg III, 53
He may be an oil man, but the show struck gold! This guy knows the game, inside and out. His age only helps him if he keeps the dad jokes to a minimum. He's as likable as Donny (BB16), but says he will do anything for the money. I hope he gains trust of some of the younger "threats" and has a hand in backstabbing them. I can see him winning HOH mid-season and stirring up the game.
Ovi Kabir, 22
This guys is near the top of my list for this season! He seems to have superfan knowledge of seasons past, potential social threat, gamer all the way. His biggest weakness, his physical game, will be his biggest asset. They will overlook Ovi until it's too late. I hope he Ian Terry's (BB14) them all and takes that $500,000 home at the end.
Nick Maccarone, 27
This guy confuses me. He's like a sourpatch kid. At first he's in your face and then he's the sweet therapist that will use all your feelings against you to get his way. We'll see how he used his profession to his advantage, but I can see him going quite far based on his ability to play on others emotions.
Jack Matthews, 28
Is Jack this year's Tyler(BB20)? This guy will be offered more alliances than anyone else. He's obviously got the look, but he's seemingly sensitive as well. If he avoids a showman, I really like this guy's chances of taking it.
Jackson Michie, 24
Los Angeles, CA
We needed a "bro", Jackson is our guy. I don't dislike him, but the guy seems really vanilla. I can see 2-3 girls really clashing with him. His image is important to him, he'd rather lose and be loved. His favorite players are Paul (BB18&19) and Brett (BB20). If he can be a combination of both, he may actually pull it off.
Christie Murphy, 28
I'm calling Christie the "Gratitude Goddess" this year. She owns a clothing boutique and has confessed to saging her customers with negative energy. She plans on holding gratitude ceremonies daily and forcing the houseguests to bring out their good energies. This will get old, real quick. She's going to have to tone it down and respect the other houseguests energies whether that be positive or negative. My hopes aren't high, but maybe a little saging of the house will be what she needs to take it all.
Sam Smith, 31
Mountain Top, Pennsylvania
I'm going to call it now. Sam and Kathryn will not get along :) I really want to like Sam, but his thoughts are all over the place. He's going to drive the houseguests nuts. His physical game better be there, or he is out before jury. On the bright side, Cliff will have someone to swap Dad jokes with for a few weeks.
Analyse Talavera, 22
Simi Valley, California
Analyse is definitely athletic and compares herself to Angela (BB20). If she can keep her emotions in check and not fall into a showmance, I like her chances in the game. She needs a strong, diverse alliance. She wants to play a similar game to Kaycee (BB20) and I think if she lays low and turns it on at the end, she's got a great shot at the money.
Isabella Wang, 22
Los Angeles, CA
I thoroughly expect to see Isabella near the end of the game. She seems like she has the ability to see right through the bull. I want Ovi and Isabella to align with one another and run that house. She will do well socially and struggle in the physical comps, but teamed up with the right people she will go deep into the game.
