Big Brother 20 – Saturday Recap

Good morning! Wow, that was a long veto comp. I think the feeds were down for almost 10 hours. Honestly, I gave up, went to bed and got up early to review what happened. Kaycee won the veto last night so things should go exactly the way Level 6 wants this week. Brett’s already guessed the battle back will probably be this week so they won’t be surprised by it. I don’t have as much to cover since we didn’t have nearly as many hours of feeds but I’ll recap the things we did see.


Before the veto comp:

  • Angela rec’d a short hot pink hoh robe instead of the long gray and red ones they usually get and Sam called her HOH Barbie because of it. She didn’t say it mean or anything, it was said complimentary. (at least on the outside)
  • Hay went to the hoh room to hug it out with Angela. They did the usual “I still love you” stuff and “we don’t want it to be awkward.” (I don’t think they’d talked since the noms were made)
  • The veto players were drawn and afterwards, we learned that Hay was going to pick Brett with hg’s choice but Fessy told her not to so she picked Sam.
  • Angela and KC were mad about Hays choice and vented about it in the hoh room. They said Fessy was selfish and only thinking about himself. Angela called him a bully. (Angela is one of those people who uses the term bully often and for stupid reasons) I don’t read too much into the trash talk from either side plus KC’s never cared for Fessy. She’s ready for him to go so it doesn’t take much for him to annoy her. (She should do her “let’s go” cheer when he’s walking to the door on eviction night. Too much?)
  • Angela and KC let Hay know her choice was a mistake and wondered why she didn’t pick Brett or Tyler. They told her Fessy was the target, not her. Hay was honest and told them she thought she was the target so she chose someone she thought she could beat. She said she wished they’d told her that Fessy was the target because she’d have picked someone else. Angela said she really did consider going after Sam but Fessy was good at comps so it was better for her game if he left. She said it’s what most people wanted her to do. (She wanted Hay to think she was telling the truth when they made their deal during Fessys hoh)
  • Hay talked to Brett and explained to him how she thought she’d been the target. She didn’t understand why nobody filled her in and told her what was going on. This was dumb on both sides imo. Angela SAID Hay was the target in her nom speech so L6 shouldn’t be surprised she thought she was. They shouldn’t have been mad because Fessy was looking out for himself, why wouldn’t he? (I’m not sure he was anyway, he probably just figured they could beat Sam) It was also dumb for Hay to think that the people who put her otb would tell her their plans in advance. Everyone just woke up stupid yesterday.

After the veto comp:

  • Brett and Tyler hung out in the hoh room and the other hg’s were separated in other rooms of the house since it was an individually timed comp. While hanging out together, they made a F2. They agreed to stick with L6 and then take each other to the end. (This isn’t sincere on either side, Tyler’s for sure)
  • KC won and the best I can piece together so far is it involved balls being shot at them from tennis ball machines. They had to catch them and there were rounds. One of the rounds involved squid instead of balls and there was plenty of slime too. JC took some bad hits I’m guessing because Brett said the reason they shot JC “in the balls” was payback because he gives production a hard time so often.
  • Fessy shut himself away in the pink room and was upset he didn’t win. It sounds like he lost by 1 point. (I know from being a sports mom and a sports fan in general, the close ones hurt the most) I warn you in advance, his catch phrase this week will be “I can’t believe KC beat me.” We know he always has a favorite phrase he beats into the ground every week and I have a feeling, this will be the one. (I wonder if Fessy has remembered things he said last week when he didn’t want to put Angela and KC otb. He said they weren’t threats to him and “they can’t win shit” so I think it’s fitting that Angela put him otb and KC will be the one to keep him there.) I won’t count him out in a battle back. His 3 options are to win it, leave Hay with Brett or send Scottie back with Hay and Brett. He’ll fight for this one as if there’s 500k on the line…oh wait?
  • L6 assured Hay she would be fine this week and she had nothing to worry about. It’s good for Hay things went the way they did because if they hadn’t, she might not have fingers left by Thursday. She can’t possibly have any nails left so she’s been eating her fingers. If the next comp was getting yourself out of handcuffs, she’d have an edge but otherwise, not good.
  • L6 tried to celebrate with Angela’s hoh wine. As soon as it was opened, Hay came up to the hoh room and she immediately said “I smelled it.” (Wine hasn’t helped this girls game at all so she should be greatful they didn’t want to include her)
  • L6 toasted their good fortune, waited for have nots to end and planned for a battle back & double eviction. The plan is still to nom Hay & Sam during the double. (That may change depending on who wins the battle back)
  • This happened last night too temporarily. It was either a production oops moment or they subconsciously want Fessy to leave too because it’s already black & white:
  • Brett felt bad about teasing JC and saying he was the only floater left since he’s the only one who hasn’t won a comp.
  • JC checked on Fessy and told him it wasn’t over. Fessy said he’s done and doesn’t want to be there all week waiting for Thursday. Fessy kept saying he couldn’t believe he lost because he was against JC, Sam and KC.  He said “you guys arn’t good.”(what an asshole) They argued over whether or not JC was a floater. Fessy told his he was and JC said he wasn’t a “whatever her name was from 16.” (They refer to Victoria as Veronica sometimes) JC insisted he wasn’t and then said if he was, he was the best floater ever.

I’m pausing for a minute to discuss a pet peeve of mine. I agree with JC on this one. He’s definitely one of the best floaters I’ve seen play the game and I’ve seen every season. Like most post Rachel players and players who’ve only seen a few seasons, they equate floating with a lack of comp wins and being a “loser.” For the record, Victoria was a coaster, not a floater. She didn’t have her hand in any pies and rarely knew what was going on. Her game was to stay out of everything and simply survive. Sam is a coaster too. Floaters are heavily involved in the game, they just avoid showing it so they dont take the blame. JC is a floater and so far, he’s an excellent one. Jun, who won BB4 was also a floater and amazing at it. Rachel Reilly equates winning comps with playing the game so if you arn’t winning, you’re a floater/loser.  She gave floating a bad name and it’s always annoyed me. She HAD to win comps because her social game sucked! I can respect the way she won but I also respect (probably more) a player who doesn’t have to win a comp. If you HAVE to win in a particular week, especially early on, you’ve done something wrong in the game and not covered yourself from all angles. That’s why being a floater can get you into trouble as the numbers dwindle. There are less people to pick from and if you arn’t very careful, you become expendable.

  • Angela and KC think it’s possible Tyler has a power app.
  • L6 discusses having Sam vote out Hay if she wants to help ensure Sam would be Hays target. This is a tweet from someone I follow on Twitter who shares my sense of humor:
  • JC would be very happy if he could watch The Little Mermaid.
  • Fessy told Hay & JC the people they worked with never trusted each other. (True) Hay wonders if Tyler is going to sleep upstairs with Angela. Hay tells them it’s them plus Sam left out and the 4 others are working together. (Yeah, she’s decides this daily so I’m not getting excited over it this time)
  • Tyler asked Angela if she’d like to go on a date after the show ends and she said yes. She asked if they should go to LA or Hilton Head. He said he could do better than that and mentioned the Hawaii trip he won. They discuss if he should or shouldn’t sleep upstairs. (He knows he shouldn’t) Tyler told Angela that Brett asked if they were in a shomance and Tyler said no. Brett said he didn’t care as long as it was after the show. This seemed to worry Angela a little.
  • Tyler also told Angela it was good being locked up and talking to Brett for so long. He said he understood why Winston was so in love. (Maybe Scottie was right and he does have some mist)
  • Brett finally realized Sam will only eat the food she cooks. She didn’t eat the food he prepared when have-nots ended.
  • JC tried to urge Brett to go upstairs and sleep with Angela. Brett said there were enough beds for everyone now so he wasn’t going to do it. JC did drag him upstairs to hang out and said they were going up to “c**kblock” Tyler. Lol
  • Fessy admitted to Hay the reason he wanted Scottie out was that he was getting too close to Hay and he didn’t want Scottie to steal her away from him. (Gross)

Have a great Sunday!


About Mel



  1. WhereisPablo

    I know it was stupid for Haho to pick Hazel, but what a stroke of luck for Tyler. He would have been locked up for hours with her in the HOH. I can’t even imagine.

  2. FW aka CY

    Mel – much appreciation for your recap. I’m finding them an essential part of my morning routine anymore as they are always uniquely informative and humorous even one has been reading the boards all night. Grazzi! 🙂

  3. FW aka CY

    … even “IF” one has been reading…

  4. Helen

    Brett finally realized Sam will only eat the food she cooks. She didn’t eat the food he prepared when have-nots ended.

    Or…last time Sam ate what Brett made for her to eat she dang near died ..lol…I would probably avoid his cooking too!!!!!

  5. dfdsgs

    Dr Will was the original floater. Won season 2 without ever winning an HOH (this was before vetos) and going on the block four times. Then made it to fourth place and day 65 in season 7 when his goal was to get Boogie the win. In that season he also didn’t win an HOH or Veto and was on the block twice.

    I agree with Mel that there is a difference between floaters and coasters. However, if you want to float through the game, you can’t be to under the radar too much. That is my fear with JC is that he has been so under the radar that no one will believe him in the end that he was involved in any crucial decisions.

    That is the biggest issue with floating the good ones can get to the end but do they have the relationships and the public speaking skills to convince people that what they did is worth $500,000 if someone who was winning is sitting next to them.

    • ElaineB

      From a defn standpoint, floating has to do with not being settled in one place, variable. Coasting is moving along without using power. Tying it to BB, JC and Sam have been floating. I would agree that Sam has also been coasting, in the sense, that she is not using her power (skills) to get herself further in the game; others are doing that for her. JC is actively playing a social game. He knows he is at a disadvantage competitively, so he is using the skills he has, and it has been working.

    • caRyn

      If JC or Sam make it to F2, I think the jury would laugh and not take them seriously. The same way they are treated in the BB house.

  6. dfdsgs

    Also looks like unless Tyler pulled a Fessy/Haleigh and “snuck” downstairs then he didn’t sleep in the HOH room with Angela.

  7. Ann

    I wish Ty & Angela would lock the door when they’re in the HOH room alone when they see JC coming & when he rings the doorbell tell him he has to come back later just to piss the little twerp off. I don’t like him at all & couldn’t have him around me.

    • ElaineB

      JC is going to get far more annoying as the numbers continue to dwindle. I have kept away from listening to him on feeds, but the poor HGs….yikes!

    • Sassy

      They won’t do that because they don’t want to be seen as a couple. Locking the door just makes it worse. They already know some people suspect them and they are struggling to keep their hands off each other. They really don’t care what Jc or Sam think, but they do care about Brett’s opinion.

  8. danmtruth

    Am I a bad person because I’m taking great joy in watching Fess pain over loosing a ball catching comp Than again I also enjoy that KC got this win
    Next question is will Fess pull a Matt and disregard rules to get penalty votes to get voted out That is if he even knows who Mat is

    Thanks to NK for her court recorder skills to keep us updated on the coming and going on in the house last night Even if she did turn into a paperback love novelist When reporting on TY ,Angela, Bret JC love fest and the old standby Hay & Fess The only thing missing was the Fabbio novel cover
    Than our sweet Mel comes in and makes a 7 course meal out of this trash

  9. g8trgirl

    Can’t say enough thank you’s to NK and Mel and Steve for keeping us so informed. Without you guys we’d only know what production wants us to know. And where’s the fun in that?

    • Mel

      NK was on a roll last night! I don’t have time to read the previous nights comments before I recap. If I did, Steve wouldn’t be able to post it before noon. Sometimes, I go back and read them because they’re so funny…from everyone. NK’s romance novel and the play by play had me cracking up. I don’t know how she does it sometimes. She’s always on top of it but last night was special in case anyone missed it. There’s WAY more detail than I could possibly give in a recap!

  10. Sassy

    RealVegas is proud of themselves for blocking so many people yesterday, WTF? It’s hard to trend when you block 1/2 your followers…

    “If you managed to not be blocked today, you were supportive and understanding of why I did a blackout. It was needed. To you all: ❤

    Of if you are a hater yet follow me still for some reason – if you don’t like how I run my page, leave. I won’t notice, nor mind, nor care.”

  11. Sassy

    Here’s the breakdown of wins. It’s really close between them, no one is dominating the comps.

    Tyler – 1 HOH, 3 Veto
    Angela – 2 HOH, 1 Veto
    Faysal – 1 HOH, 2 Veto
    Haleigh – 1 HOH, 1 Hacker
    Sam – 1 HOH
    Kaycee – 1 Veto, 1 Hacker
    Brett – 1 Veto
    JC – nothing

    I very much liked the recap, but I do have to disagree with one thing. Angela is right; Fess is a jealous bully.

    Both Bay and Fess bullied Scottie. It’s not their fault that he fell for it, but Angela is spot on for pointing it out. Fess has not played Big Brother for a single minute that he has been in the house. He has been playing the bachelor.

    He admitted that he was insecure about Scottie. He insisted that Hay use Sam in the veto. He is far more insecure about Brett, and did not want to see him play and possibly take her off the block.

    Re-watch the zingbot: he was jealous when the joke was hinted that Hay may have a crush on Brett. When the punchline was Scottie, he was relieved. To whomever wrote that set up and punchline: brilliant!

    I just do not want Bay back in the house. She will win it though. Production wants it. Her app will be in play. CBS really wants us to like Swagg/Bay. They are going to try to force feed it to us.

    • Sassy

      I don’t think her app is any good if she comes back. If it is, that’s BS. It should have just gone away when she got booted. I think it will be Scottie or MF that comes back.

    • danmtruth

      Good points about Fess he has a big blind spot about Hay
      Yes production would like it if Bay came bake The good thing is this year things have not gone production way NOT that production would do things to influence the outcome of a comp

    • WhereisPablo

      I don’t agree to Fess being a bully. He is many other things, stupid, jealous, demanding, etc. but I have not seen bullying behavior. Simply saying something to or about someone does not a bully make. Fess hasn’t threatened anyone to my knowledge, nor has he used any kind of real or imagined power to force anyone to do anything. There is a difference between being a jerk and a bully. Fess is a major jerk, but I don’t think he has a mean bone in his body.
      Good grief, did I just defend Fessy?

      • delabear

        If you define a bully as someone who goes after another who is weaker and uses that weakness to get them to do what the bully wants, maybe JC is really bullying Fessy!!

      • Avatar

        Look, I am not saying that he is a bully in the “give me your lunch money” meaning of the word. Bully’s are, above all else, insecure. Fess’s insecurity is the reason why Scottie is gone.

        Dela: that is an awesome point and made me honestly laugh out loud. JC is more “jedi mind tricking” Fess.

        End of the day, and I have said this on previous threads, I do think that for the most part, this cast really does like one another. When I said “Bully”, I meant in the sense of the game. I do think that they are honestly good people.

        Even Bay….she is just spoiled. That’s not a bad thing. It simply means she has a family that loves her. We should all be spoiled.

  14. hogwild

    I thinK I might vote Hay out this week over Fess when Hay doesn’t have Fess in her ear verbally not the other way she seems to have at least an idea of whats going where Fess is pretty much clueless plus she seems less likely to win a battleback.

  15. jimbo

    I agree with the distinction between floater and coaster. Dr Will could by some standards be ridiculously deemed a floater — he tried not to win everything, and just stick by on snarky charm (but, really, manipulation, too, so it was more than that). Winning puts a bulls eye on you, and you have to anger people in putting them otb — how is that always a smart strategy? JC is playing a smart game. Who hates him? Nobody. Also, as an aside — Haleigh needs to put tabasco sauce or something on those nails to stop chewing them. Shes so cute/hot, but I bet her hands are a mess. She has to conquer that habit.

  16. Avatar

    Does anyone have any idea when they name the new Have Nots for the week? My guess was they ended on Saturday, I guess if Tyler was drinking wine Saturday, and having cheese cake, and if JC was eating a banana Saturday that would be the case, so, do they give everyone a day of all being equal and start it on Sunday or something? Or? Just wondering if anyone knows when this week’s have nots get named, or when it starts for this week?

    • Helen

      They end at midnight Saturday/Sunday…..If they are going to have have nots this week they get named on Sunday..
      Since Fessy and Hayleigh are going to be named it’s possible production will skip have nots this week so that Hayleigh won’t have to do it

      • Avatar

        Thanks for the reply and the information Helen, why wouldn’t Hayleigh have to do it? Sam did it, on a week when she quit smoking. It’s part of the game and they knew it going in. Slop might not be ideal, but reading about it – heck, I’ve had to eat worse sometimes LoL.

      • Tinkerbell

        My dream for Have Not Nit Wits this week – Hay, Fess, Sam.

      • Helen

        I only say that Cyber because I personally despise Hayleigh and I think she is one of Grodners pets this season along with Bayleigh…
        So I put my tinfoil hat on where Hayleigh is involved

      • Tinkerbell

        Helen, I’m with you completely on Haleigh.

      • Avatar

        I could totally see Hayleigh in the DR room crying about it too. I see your point. I still hope they vote her out over Fessy. I don’t think Fessy has anyone to align himself with no matter who wins the battle back, whereas, Hayleigh has someone to whether it’s Bayleigh, RS, Fessy, or Scottie.
        Leave the two that are on the block on slop all week (especially her since it’s been pointed here out how she’s always snacking, gnoshing, or eating) and whichever one goes probably has a harder time winning the battle back after stressing all week, the emotions involved in leaving the other behind, meeting Julie, and then the adrenaline of competing on Thursday. The other folks in Jury are just waiting all week to compete, if Bayleigh or RS win, who do they have to align with? They weren’t really super close to Fessy in the house, not as close as Hayleigh was – I don’t know, just my two cents.

      • dfdsgs

        Sam is coming off being one so she won’t get it for two weeks in a row. People are too nice now to do that and don’t use have not as a weapon for a competitive advantage anymore.

      • mm22

        Haha Helen-surly not-what?? could there be favoritism going on?

      • Tinkerbell

        I would love for Haleigh to be sent flying this week because I hate her so much. Put her and Fess on slop, then send her home. Next, haleigh…..then Sam. A person can dream.

  17. Tinkerbell

    Not positive , but I’m pretty sure Sam is eating slop right now. If she loves it so much, they need to keep her on slop this coming week. She’s gets on my last nerve. Freakin’ fruitcake. I’m sick and tired of her act. I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but her fake Southern accent is part of her act. Many times I’ve heard her talk in a regular ole voice. Last night she was talking to someone in the pink room, accent gone. Her accent is completely exaggerated, part of her act.

  18. dfdsgs

    I have been thinking about it, and I think the smartest thing would be to get rid of Haleigh. Since there is a battle back whoever wins out of Rockstar, Bayleigh, Scottie, or Fessy (if he is voted out) will go right back to working with her. Meanwhile, if it is Fessy in the house, I don’t know if any of them over Haleigh will work with Fessy moving forward. It will make it easier for L6 to pick off the last few if they don’t start turning on each other and want to be the final 4.
