Big Brother 20 – Monday Recap
Good morning, I wish I could say “holy crap, you won’t believe what you missed last night” but I can’t. How about “wow, Sam hasn’t destroyed the house with her lead pipe and the house is peaceful?” That’s the best I can offer this morning but hey, it’s something good at least.
We complain about how bored we are near the end but the hg’s have it so much worse. They’re bored out of their minds and can’t even go outside so they’ve entertained themselves the best they can. This is where Angela and Tyler are lucky. When you’re in love, you can be content doing nothing, talking about your childhood, your friends, etc. so they definitely have it better than the other three. These two are happy just laying around looking at each other.
Swaggy’s tweets crack me up because he’s so delusional and he overvalues the role he played in the game. A recent one said he was happy for Angela and Tyler if they were really in love but they couldn’t be if Tyler would cut her in the game. He said he’d never have done that to Bayleigh. (No, he’d just describe their sex in way too much detail to Fessy and people watching feeds. That’s sooooo much better than flowers, right?) See, this is the kind of thinking that made Swaggy a bad game player. I don’t know if Tyler cuts her or not but if they’re mature, it doesn’t have to matter. Here’s a tweet about Brett. It’s his response to someone saying Brett had the biggest blindside so far:
If you listen to Brett, Angela hasn’t done anything all season anyway. The interviews they do after they’re evicted vary as the day goes on. I read the most recent one yesterday. When you read these, you can almost see people slowly snapping out of the fog of the game. Sometimes they’ll give conflicting answers in different interviews but it’s because they’re still confused. Everything they say can change once they get to the jury house anyway so I don’t put too much stock in them but they can give us a little insight. Take someone like Rockstar for example. If she says in interviews how bitter she is, I’m more inclined to think it will stay that way because that seemed like her nature while playing the game. Brett wasn’t very impressed with Angela in any of his interviews so that makes me think, he may continue to think like that. He also seemed to have a bit of a chauvinistic attitude in the house and I wouldn’t be shocked if he’s someone who doesn’t give a woman enough credit in the end. If Angela gets there, he may think her boobs got her there.
Brett said “Angela didn’t play the game.” He said she’s pretty and that’s why she got so far. (She’d won 2 hoh’s and 2 veto’s to his 1 veto before he left so…shove it Brett) He contradicts himself because he also said she controls Tyler 100%. He said he’d be fine with seeing KC at the end but he thinks Sam and JC are playing the best and are hoping it’s them. (This is the bitter part because Brett NEVER thought Sam was playing before) Even someone in L6 is acknowledging that L6 better take each other to the end. They could all lose to Sam or JC.
Yesterday was slow and almost all of the recap is random conversations the hg’s had with each other:
- Sam told Tyler she wanted to leave on a good note and if it was her time to go, it was ok. She said she couldn’t compete with athletes and that wouldn’t change in a few days. She said she didn’t have anything bad to say about JC. She said she was at the end with the people she wanted to be with. (I don’t think so because she avoids all of them. If she likes them so much, why not spend a little time together?) She was down on herself for doing bad in comps. Tyler said she’d won the hardest one and she said she thought Haleigh hanging on the rope was harder. She said “Haleigh hung on like a hair in a biscuit.” (Sam does have creative sayings) Tyler said they’d talk again as it got closer.
- KC and JC made up a song about Tyler and sang it for Tyler and Angela. JC used KC’s dumbbell as a drum. It was called “The Real Tyler” and some of the lyrics were “she’s just so beautiful…likes to flip her weave….maybe she’s in heat…..eats chex mix standing on her feet….loves flipping her hair….I love her so much.” (Like I said, they’re doing what they can to stay occupied)
- There was a maintenance lockdown and they got to have some music. They were very happy about it and it may be what got the song writing started.
- They don’t think Haleigh and Fessy were actually having a shomance.
- Sam talked to the cameras all day. She also walked from room to room, pointed and stared as if she were doing an inventory of some kind. (This may have been around the time she tried to cram a coathanger into a crack between the walls, don’t know what that was about either) She told the cameras she was ready to go.
- JC and KC talked alone and he told her he didn’t have any F2’s and she needed to be smart near the end. She said she was keeping him over Sam and he tried to get her to look past this vote. He said he’d keep her if he got to decide or got the next hoh. He said if he was hoh, he would want Angela to go. (He’s trying to get something going but I don’t see it happening)
- Tyler and KC confirmed their F2 again. KC thinks Angela assumes they’ll both take her to the end. Tyler said he doesn’t think Angela focuses beyond the F3. (This is really stupid of Tyler if he’s decided to take Angela to the end) KC said they’re playing the same game Derrick and Cody did. (Let’s hope she remembers how it ended)
- Sam made the steak I mentioned yesterday so she knows she’s going. She parked herself on the stairs for dinner. Tyler wanted to go upstairs and tried to wait her out (I think) but gave up and went up anyway. (Sam likes to monitor who’s in the hoh room in case anyone hasn’t figured that out before)
- JC, Tyler and KC have a bet over who has the 2nd power app. Whoever had it has to pay for the food and drinks when they leave.
- Sam had a final day of craft time. (Unless she can squeeze one more in this morning) She ripped up a shirt so she could use the scraps and threads to make something. (Maybe she wants to leave them with a new oven mitt or a lovely throw pillow for their last week in the house. She’ll need more luggage to haul all the crap she’s made out of the house so she should’ve been weaving another duffle bag)
- Here’s something I’ve never seen allowed to happen. Sam took one of the shelves out of a cabinet in the storage room to make herself a food tray.
- Angela finally found the mayo in her face wash. Tyler tried to hide in the shower as she tried to throw it on him. She got him pretty good in the hair weave JC was singing about.
- I heard Sam say that she was relatable and she’s every woman in America. If that’s true….Canada, her I come!
It was reported from several sources yesterday that Julie will be leaving The Talk, effective immediately. There’s supposed to be a video msg from her played or something. Basically, she’ll be giving a statement explaining that she’s leaving without putting herself in a position to have to discuss it. (Smart) The reports also said she’ll continue with Big Brother. It didn’t say if she’ll continue beyond this season though.
No one can really be surprised by this announcement.The Talk is a different kind of show from BB. There’s no way she can be on there discussing the things they regularly discuss while her husband has the same type of allegations made against him. It would never work and it was never going to work after this happened. It isn’t about fairness or people thinking she’s innocent and shouldn’t be punished too. The entire structure of the show makes it impossible for her to continue, fair or not. Who says she even wanted to stay? We don’t know how she feels and she may be dying for Big Brother to end so she can get the hell off that stage too. She is a professional and could only be finishing out this year.
It’s easy for people to say she should leave her husband and save her career but it’s more complicated than that. I believe the allegations for the most part because I don’t know what the people making them gain by making them up. I wasn’t there and don’t know what happened so that’s all I have to go on. It’s true, there’s been a power struggle for control of CBS for a while and it’s possible this was used as a way to get Les Moonves to step down. However, I don’t know why these women would say these things just to help someone else get rid of him. That’s my opinion and it’s a fairly easy one for me to have. Who can expect Julie to share that opinion just because someone makes an allegation? Maybe she knew he was like this but thinks he changed when they got married. Maybe she doesn’t believe it at all. Who knows? I do know that I’ve been married to my husband for about the same amount of time as they’ve been married. If someone I don’t know or barely know said my husband did something like that, would I automatically start packing his shit and tossing him out of the house? If someone made an allegation against your spouse, would you just take the word of a stranger over your spouse? That’s why I say it’s complicated. If she believes him over other people, well, that’s what married people might do. Now, if a dozen people said that about my husband, I certainly wouldn’t dismiss it and you can bet your ass I’d get to the bottom of it. Forget packing his stuff, I’d probably burn it in the front yard and kick him out. I’m also not in the public eye and would have the ability to sort it out without people watching me do it. I’m only saying I don’t know how she should handle it and I’d imagine she’s handling the best she can. If these allegations are true and if she leaves her employment at CBS, (no matter which side makes the decision) CBS didn’t cost her the jobs, her husband did.
If and when BB is renewed, she may continue (but I doubt it) if it works for both sides involved. She may want to leave the network that got rid of her husband and they may want her to leave and go a different direction entirely. It could be either, both or neither. I hope she stays if she wants to but I’d also understand if CBS wants to put someone in there who isn’t married to the person who just left. That’s just business and we don’t know Julie personally. Is she someone who everyone loves and can easily separate the situation from her job? Is she someone who’s known for being so raging b*tch when she’s pissed and would be hard to deal with moving forward? I don’t know. Selfishly, I’m more concerned about the show being renewed than I am who hosts the show.
Have a great Tuesday!
