Big Brother 20 – Friday Recap

Good morning! I hope everyone is enjoying the start to the weekend. I was afraid I wouldn’t get much accomplished because of the feeds but after listening to Haleigh yesterday, I’m not going to mind taking a break from it. I don’t know how much more I can take of the same thing over and over! It would be different if the hg’s saw her differently than I do but they don’t. They know what she’s doing and that’s why it doesn’t work. This is one of the times that perception lines up with reality and that doesn’t always happen in BB. For example, we’ve known all season Tyler was a big threat but if the house saw him as a loveable, clueless, beach dude, then that’s their reality. In this game, it doesn’t matter what’s happening, it only matters what they believe is happening. It’s also why the better players can step outside of it and see things from an overall view.


I was impressed by Haleigh during the hoh comp. Hell, even Sam said she was impressed! That doesn’t mean I think she’s a good player. She has a one-dimensional strategy that stopped working a long time ago so it’s become very boring for me to watch. I’m not impressed with the edit she’s getting on the tv show. They’ve followed the storyline of Haleigh being Tylers biggest obstacle in the game since she put him otb as the hacker. They’ve left out all the bonehead moves she’s made along the way. I get it, if you’re a Foutte/Hive fan, she’s your last hope for a Foutte/L6 rivalry but hope won’t make it true. The rivalry is over, Foutte lost and as Da’Vonne would say, point, blank and the period. If it weren’t for the stupid battle back, (which I never like) we’d be moving on to the final phase of the game and accept that Foutte only exists in the minds of the jurors at this point.

I was going to go over some of Haleigh’s bad game moves, how she’s just as bad a player as the rest of her alliance and what if anything she could do to save herself.  I’m going to save it because she may win the veto today and take herself off the block. Although, there is one thing I’d like to say about Haleigh before I move on to the recap. I try very hard (not always successfully) to stick to the hg’s game play without criticizing them as people, with a couple of exceptions. When I talk about those things, it’s usually related to how it affects the way they’re playing the game. (Sam, for example) Other times, it’s because it’s something that’s all over social media and can’t really be ignored. (JC is a good example)


I’m seeing so many derogatory comments everywhere about Haleigh as a person. Not only do I think it’s unfair, I think it’s inaccurate. Haleigh’s practically being called a whore by a lot of people. She’s young, beautiful and she’s a huge flirt. (Unfortunately, that’s the only strategy she seems to have) She’s annoying to watch when she’s complaining, whining and bed hopping. It’s also annoying (for me) because I wanted her to be a player that clearly, she’s not. However, I’ve never seen her do one thing to justify some of the bad things being said about her.  I’ve never seen her cross any lines of conduct that say, her parents wouldn’t approve. (I’m only guessing because I dont know her parents) Yes, she cusses like a sailor and called Angela the C word but I’m referring to her behavior with the men in the house. Flirting is flirting and that’s all I’ve ever seen. She’s made out with Fessy (after 2 months) but she really likes Fessy and she only flirts with everyone else. I’m not a Haleigh fan and if you aren’t either, there’s plenty of material with her terrible game play to bash her over. The other stuff simply doesn’t make any sense to me. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion and this one is mine. I wanted to get that off my chest and I have so I’ll move on the what actually happened yesterday.

Scottie really likes grapes:

  • Brett, JC and Angela spoke with Tyler at different times before noms but it was the same conversation. They agree Haleigh and Scottie need to go up. They’ve all voted Scottie out already and Haleigh has put Tyler, Angela and KC otb. Pretty simple plan.
  • Hay bounced from person to person complaining about Sam all day so I’m not going to go over all of them. It was a lot of “she’s a b*tch” and “she’s a f**king b*tch.” That was the gist of it.
  • Hay spent a lot of time with Tyler, Angela and Tyler & Angela together. She talked about being glad Fessy didn’t come back and not approving of the speech he gave. (The Range Rover stuff actually got started by Hay a long time ago) Hay did what she always does, she sucked up to the hoh. She also told Tyler she wasn’t going to put him up if she’d won. She talked about things they should all do together once BB is over. She did what she did last week with KC which was tell them they’re “her people” whether they like it or not. She pushed the reasons Sam needed to go up and did a lot of trash talking about Sam. She was still mad that Sam cheered for Tyler during the HOH comp. She said she didn’t want to go up but understood if it happened.
  • Sam and Tyler had a check in and she told him he was still her baby and “whatever” was fine with her this week. (I wonder how she’d feel about Tyler telling Angela she smelled like a baby? It was supposed to be a compliment but I wonder if it’s her deodorant. The smell of baby powder makes my husband sick and once, I bought deodorant without noticing the scent was baby powder. It took a week to figure out why I made him nauseous. We’ve been married a long time so hey, we had other options to rule out first)  Sam was glad Hay didn’t win because she knew she’d be going otb. She said she was very impressed with Hays effort but obviously wanted Tyler to win.
  • Brett let Tyler know that his first priority is to their F2 and to L6 after that. He thinks Angela and KC are making a mistake by being so obvious that they’re a duo.
  • JC does his usual pressure talking with Tyler to make sure Tyler knows Scottie needs to be the target.  You can tell Tyler’s getting annoyed and has started reminding JC that JC isn’t the brains and he needs to trust the game Tyler’s playing. (not gonna happen) JC tells Tyler that Brett isn’t a “Fessy” and he’s a smart cookie so he won’t be as easy to manipulate. (We know that, glad to see JC is starting to get it too) JC said Brett’s worried about being on the bottom of the alliance.
  • Tyler talked to Scottie and made sure Scottie knew Hay & Fes tried to make a F4 with them (Ty & Ang) the week Scottie left. Tyler also told on Hay for telling Tyler that Scottie said he’d put Tyler & Ang otb. Scottie admitted he’d been “smitten” with Hay but said not anymore, then he said he sort of was. Tyler told him Hay & Fes were in a shomance despite her denials. Scottie said it was going around that Ty & Ang were too. Tyler let him know people wanted him otb but there was no way he’d be the target if it happened.
  • Hay and JC talked about noms and she was thinking it was going to be Sam and maybe herself.  JC mentioned Scottie and Hay didn’t think that was a possibility since he and Tyler are so close. (head hitting desk at this moment)
  • Scottie told Angela that RS and Bay spent the week in jury trying to convince him Tyler was his enemy. He said he’d had to hear about Angela’s goodbye msgs at least 100 times. Angela said RS had made comments about Angela being spoiled and entitled. Scottie told her that she’s still making them. (this might be an answer to the bitter jury speculation and an end to funny msgs)
  • Brett and KC talked about how Scottie ran straight to Hay when he came back. They don’t think it’s the smartest plan.
  • After noms, Hay cried in the have not room. Brett went to check on her.
  • Tyler told JC he let Scottie feel he’s the pawn in case he wins the veto. JC said “you’re learning, finally.” Lol
  • Tyler’s speech may have made it sound like Hay was the target and it sounded like he mentioned how fast Hay turned on Scottie last week.
  • Hay made her way to the hoh and was upset because she felt blindsided and dumb. Tyler told her she shouldn’t. She reminded him that he’d let her know before and he said he’d tried without coming out and saying it. (which they aren’t allowed to do) In a very nice way, he basically told her she’s the only person who’s put him otb so what did she expect? (my words, not his)  She said she thought it would be Sam instead of Scottie with her. (Sure Hay, he’s going to leave off the person who just came back that Tyler voted out and the person who might use a veto on you!)  She asked if he ever really considered putting up Sam. He said he did. (he didn’t)
  • Tyler told Hay if she’d kept quiet about being the hacker, none of this may have happened this way. She said “I’m aware.” He said it was pointless because Bay went home for having a power app, not because they thought she was the hacker. She said she knew that. (honestly, from all her talks in the past, I don’t think she ever connected that before) He told her he didn’t believe Bay didn’t already know Hay was the hacker before the house meeting. He said it didn’t make sense and she wouldn’t have started fighting with him unless she already knew. Hay said “it doesn’t matter.” Hay told Tyler she thought they were the closest the first week. (Waaayyyyy back in week 1, she’s reaching)  She said if she won the veto, he was going to drink beer in the tub and discuss with her what she should do with it. He used her line and said that she looked really good from that angle. She told him to shut up. (This should tell her flirting with him isn’t going to work)
  • JC and Hay leg wrestled and he tickled her feet. She yelled for him to stop and JC being a smartass, yelled for Sam to come save her again. (Ya, I thought it was a little funny)
  • Brett and Scottie climbed the rock wall.

I think I say this every week but we’ll have more to discuss once the veto has been played. We could be going over Scottie vs Haleigh and the way L6 isn’t completely on the same page with the decision. We may also be talking about which replacement nominee (if needed) will cause Tyler the least amount of trouble. Once we have a winner, we’ll have a better idea how the week will go. Check back later for the veto comp results and have a great Saturday!

    Thanks for the recap Mel, great as always! Can you tell me why KC is a have not this week when she was one last week?

    • Colby

      No, not at all.
      It would be even better if it showed her hit the mat.

    • danmtruth

      must admit it was a great relief

      Mel Hay does know how to just get to that line in teasing She also relates to the other women in this same way Looks at them as potential rivals in her flirting game Hay does not like Sam judging her Does not like Angela just not caring or fearing her or not caring of her and Fess relationship Hay is now just trying to scramble to stay in She feels like she needs to stay in the face of TY,Angela, KC Bret in that order

    I guess I feel different about Haleigh (or Ha-Ho as she is called here) because I don’t respect the flirt strategy.

    • Mel

      Oh I don’t either. It’s a weak strategy. If it worked, I’d be prepared to talk about how dumb the guys were and say more power to her but that isn’t the case. Fessy is the only one who fell for anything. Well, I guess Scottie too but he didn’t stand a chance anyway. It’s one of the reasons I say she’s s bad player. It’s the only thing in her arsenal and it’s failed.

  3. LindsayB

    Mel, I’m so glad you said something about Hay being called a whore. She’s not banging everyone, and if she was – who cares? They are adults. Being a manipulative flirt doesn’t make you a whore, it makes you a manipulative flirt. I think she’s played a horrible game. I think she’s relied on her looks and flirting way too much. I think she’s extremely annoying. I am disgusted by her constantly chewing her hands off. But she’s not a whore.

    • Seattle Kari

      Some people here have even referred to her as being a whore and it makes me sick..

      • LindsayB

        Some? Lots.

        It also bugs me when JC’s height is used to insult him. He can’t help that. He gives us plenty of ammunition so talking shit about his height is about as weak as Fessy’s game. I’d wager that the ridicule he’s experienced his whole life is a huge reason he acts the way he does.

    • Sassy

      I agree. I’ve started passing by the posts on here that get really ugly about her. I don’t like her strategy, but it is her strategy. She is young and She acts young and immature. Who you are at 21 is not the person you remain for the rest of your life. I think the hg like her as a person and will be friends with her outside the house. No one in the house , other than Sam, thinks she’s a whore or inappropriate in anyway. Unlike others, she has not had sex in the house. I can’t say what she’s like outside the house because I don’t know her, but in the house, she has not been a whore.

    • Jenny

      I remember being 21. And boy crazy. I think she’s just a typical girl for her age, and to be honest, the fact that she didn’t even want to be seen KISSING on TV is pretty impressive. Is she a little (a lot) too into her looks? Sure. Most women are at that age. She’s flirting but she’s not coming on to the guys. I’m glad you spoke up because I agree, she is NOT acting like a whore. She’s acting like a pretty girl who flirts because that’s what pretty girls do. Compare her behavior to Kaitlyn’s and tell me which of them is acting like a tramp.

  4. Helen

    So,is there any consensus on who will go OTB if either Scottie or Hayleigh wins veto and takes themselves off?
    Sam or JC
    There may be a good chance if Scottie comes off that if Sam goes up she could be voted out instead of Haleigh..

    Anyone know why the feeds are down?

    Mel has mentioned the “Summer of Stein” – a new weekly part of RHAP, Rob Has a Podcast. For BB lovers, it can be a very funny show. Last night I watched Eric Stein (BB8 contestant, along with Evel Dick, etc.) and Rob Cesternino lampoon Faysal’s exit and the current goings-on in the house. One interesting tidbit from Eric Stein was dished in a brief sentence. It got my attention, certainly.

    Stein said that he has it on good authority that production had searched for a player to replace Fessy right up to 2 days before the show started. Obviously it didn’t work out to cast someone else, and we got stuck with him. So there was production knowledge beforehand that Fester wasn’t to be thought of as good casting.

    I think that production had imagined Tyler and Haleigh as a potential BB couple, pre-show. Golden child one and golden child two. This would be a fine example of “life is what happens when you’re making other plans.”

    • Jenny

      The HG’s have talked about which ones Production was hoping would pair up as showmances based on aesthetics. They thought Hay & Scottie, Angela & Winston… I know Hay and Angela were part of the group talking about it. Can’t remember if there were others but I remember those 2.

      • Shivani33

        Pretty sure that houseguest speculation about potential couples did not include what production had previously concluded about Faysal’s overall unsuitability as a contestant. Houseguests wouldn’t know this.

        Josh Martinez has said on air that he and Faysal were the last 2 candidates for the slot filled by Josh in BB19. Josh said that essentially, there was NO contest and that he crushed it, contrasted with Fessy. Plus, with Fess, things he has said about some of his criminal antics have had to be blocked all Season, such as his stories of him and pals beating up taxi drivers. Fess is a mess. He didn’t even see that telling such life stories about himself is inappropriate and sets off big red flags about his own violence.

        Also, Haleigh would get zero ego food with Scottie as a boyfriend. He just isn’t qualified. The best that he could hope for with Haleigh would be a platonic pal. No way production would mistake these two as couple material.

        Even Angela has admitted that production was pushing her frequently towards getting close to Brett, (not Winston) but she has said repeatedly that Brett is not her kind of man, romantically. He wouldn’t be my kind of a man, either, but could make a fine friend. It took some time for Angela to even warm up to Brett at all, never mind Winston.

      • Jenny

        I could have the pairings wrong. And I wish Hay were mature enough to see that Scottie would be so much better for her than Fess. Scottie is the kind of guy we were all too dumb to notice when we were busy crushing on the quarterback. I think his crush on her is sweet.

  7. Seattle Kari

    Did anybody get a screenshot of Hailey washing her face last night? It was really funny because the wash was white and when she went to wash off her mascara (rubbing in circles) and it left black marks around her eyes so she looked like a panda, lmao!!

  8. danmtruth

    Words do hurt I am guilty of calling Hay HaHo Not that I am calling her a whore in real life just that it was short and seemed funny As for calling JC short Well he is After he mention how the M word was offensive to him I made sure I never used it That all being said we must admit for Hay if you are going to flirt as much as she does Unfortunately the word whore comes with it yet what is the difference between what she does and what Bret and TY do ? Both like to turn on the “charm” Sexuality is always tricky in game play in getting people to trust them

  9. mm22

    “I thought someone reported Fessy making condom runs to the pantry. What were those for? Balloon animals to amuse themselves while not having sex? C’mon.” I also remember reading that – is it true?
