Good evening, everyone!
Tonight is the night. The premiere event will be over and the live feeds will begin tonight at midnight est! Don’t forget to get a free week to the feeds by signing up through this link.
Correction – Feeds begin at 1 am est
Alright, let’s quickly talk about last night. Reactions have been mixed so far, and I feel the same way. Keep in mind that my opinions could change barring any more announcements tonight but here is what I think…
This season is going to be either really good or really obnoxious depending on who gets evicted and when. Let me toss these into a few categories:
- Decent so far – Haleigh, Kaycee, Sam, Tyler, Winston, Scottie
- Surprisingly decent (I was expecting worse) – JC, Angela
- Annoying – Kaitlyn, Brett, Swaggy
- No real opinion – The rest
People like Rachel, Angie, Steve, etc were basically just there. Didn’t sway me one way or the other so I’ll leave them off for now. Angela was a tough one to put in the decent position as she is really borderline between decent and annoying. I have a feeling I’ll have a much stronger opinion of her as the feeds go live.
So far, the twists are pretty terrible. They did the same thing as last year with having 8 safe with the only difference is someone had to win the option rather than handing it to Paul. I am not at all a fan of the popularity contest that will take place through the voting, but the only saving grace is they don’t have any veterans in there to steal the early votes. The voting system also seems fairly annoying as you have to like chat with some bot to cast your votes. Screw that. I’ll pass on that twist.
Hopefully they have something else in store because so far these twists are weak
Split 50/50. Kaycee’s punishment is really weak but Sam’s punishment is fantastic. I am going to love watching the robot roll around the house all week long. Great addition to the show and the only real bright spot from these twists. Hopefully, they continue to be creative in that department this season.
Alright, time for some show updates. Reminder, I’ll also be live tweeting!
- Highlights about how Swaggy screwed over Angela
- Kaitlyn apologizes to Swaggy for being harsh behind his back
- HoH Comp time
- Only the 8 who aren’t safe can compete
- Steve, Sam, Bay, Tyler, Kaitlyn, Angela, Winston, JC
- People need to take balls and put them in other tubes. When the tube is full, you’re eliminated
- Steve is the first big target as is Sam
- Sam is hurt by Winston crossing the platform to eliminate her
- Steve is second out
- Kaitlyn third out
- JC doesn’t want to win but nobody is putting balls in his tube
- Just as he says it, people start putting balls in his tube
- Winston fourth out
- Angela out
- Tyler starts putting balls in Bay’s tube rather than JC. Everyone forgets about JC
- The reason being, JC has one ball to knockout so he is saving JC until later
- Bay knocks out JC
- Tyler wins HoH!
- Seems like the early leak was right. Tyler will almost certainly just put the first two people who got knocked out up (Sam and Steve)
- People are all making their pitch to Tyler
- Robot Sam had a conversation with him in the storage room. He said he’ll feel bad nominating a robot
- Nominations –
- Steve and Sam
