Pre-season prediction:Compared to Victor throughout the season
Reality: Faysal is a huge Big Brother newbie and it has showed so far this season. He has had a really good social game but terrible tactical game and is currently on the outside of nearly any alliance he’s in. He’ll stick around for a bit because people will use him as a tool to win comps and vote their side but I think he’ll be one of the first to go when in the top 8
Prediction: He’ll hang around for a bit but should barely make top 8
Pre-season prediction: A lot of attention from the guys. Possible final 5
Reality: As I predicted, she is indeed getting a ton of attention from the guys – especially Faysal – but doesn’t seem to be interested in any showmance. She has been playing a flirty floater type of game in public but is really in the mix with anything going on in the house. She is close with a lot of people and that should help her advance some
Prediction: Haleigh very well could make top 3. Maybe more top 5 but I expect to see her around for a bit
Pre-season prediction: Jury likely
Reality: JC is having a solid game inside the house, but outside the house is a bit different. He’s been in the center of all the controversies surrounding the cast from using the n-word to grabbing Tyler’s penis. Inside the game, he is very well liked by all sides of the house but that may come back to bite him when he doesn’t want to pick a side.
Prediction: He has the potential to make final 3 and maybe even win the game
Pre-season prediction: If she survives first 3 evictions, she’ll make it far
Reality: Kaycee is in a great position as she’s playing the Angela role. She is laying low but has picked a side so she has protection but hasn’t had to get any blood on her hands. She hasn’t had the need to show off her physical side yet and she may hold it back for even longer. She’s never talked about as a nomination option so she’ll make jury and probably top 5
Prediction: I think Kaycee is a strong candidate for a final 2
Pre-season prediction: Sides with the ‘cool’ people of the house
Reality: Rachel’s game has been a bit different than I expected. I actually expected her to be the bitchier one in the house who causes a lot of drama, but her social game is actually really good. She is getting along with both sides of the house fairly well and has a lot of tight bonds with people.
Prediction: Cruising right along, top 6
Pre-season prediction: No set prediction for her
Reality: The robot twist hurt Sam initially but she was able to rebound and even got a treat with basically a safety for that week. I still don’t really know what to think of her as she has had some very weird interactions with people – notably Brett – and is playing a pretty mixed social game. Her goal is to cook and clean her way into the finals (at least for now) and almost refuses to talk game with anyone. I think her adamant floater position is going to hurt her with all these gamers this season
Prediction: She is the one person I still can’t figure out. She’ll likely make jury or even be carried to the final 2 like this year’s Victoria
Pre-season prediction: Fan favorite but cut mid-game
Reality: Tyler is one frustrating player to watch because he’s so good at the game but it kills you to see him play so hard so fast. He has basically had an early Paul type of run where he’s controlled most of the HoH’s so far, but it’s not going as well as Paul and he made a mistake of publicly hitching himself to the loose canon Kaitlyn. He is in a good position with his ‘level 6’ alliance but playing all sides of the house this early is going to bite him.
Prediction: He had the potential to win had he remained under the radar then turned on his game midway through
The guys are being knocked out one at a time and will soon be severely short-handed once Winston or Brett leave the house. The girls are coming together, but there is still a lot of friction within that group so a solid 8 person girl alliance is not going to work. Angela and Rachel are close while Rockstar, Haleigh, and Kaitlyn are fairly close. Sam, Bayleigh, and Kaycee are kind of alone despite having friends. An all-girls alliance is going to form because there will eventually be mostly girls left in the house. Scottie, JC, and Faysal should be protected by the girls for a bit but Tyler and Brett/Winston could be the next two guys to go. Between those guys, the girls will likely let Sam, Rockstar, and/or Kaitlyn leave which should end up with a final 5 of say Angela, Rachel, Bayleigh, JC, and maybe Scottie. That’s who I’m going with for now.
