Big Brother 20 – Sunday Recap

Good Monday morning! Yesterday was rinse and repeat in the conversation department. They were outside so the scenery was different and a couple thing were solidified but it was mostly the same thing over and over. As usual, I’ll give you my thought on a few things and then go over the highlights from the day.


The episode:  I didn’t realize the show would be delayed where I live so only the first half recorded. I’ll catch the 2nd part once they put it on the CBS site. I didn’t see the hacker comp play out so I don’t have much to say about Sundays show. Here’s the few things I did take note of:

  • It would appear Brett is gaining fans. He’s getting a funny edit for tv viewers and he’s winning over feed watchers too because of the way he’s learning the game. (those goodbye msgs still need some work)
  • Get ready for shomance 2.0 with Fessy and Haleigh. It may be news for some but this has been going on for a while now. Even the clip of them in the storage room was over a week old. I’ll be curious to see if they avoid showing Haleigh flirting with Scottie and the massages from Brett in order to air a full blown shomance with Fessy. It would be funnier if they would show her working all of them but if they did that, they’d want to avoid the kissing and romantic talk between Haleigh and Fessy. They aren’t going to give that up though.
  • Production is done shielding Sam and they decided to show more Sybil and less Sam. The stuff they showed wasn’t really funny.  I honestly think they’re creating a backstory so if Sam self-evicts, it won’t be so confusing for the tv audience. They can’t have someone leave and not have a storyline that makes sense.

There’s been a lot of floater and underdog discussions lately. Rockstar and Haleigh call the other side floaters about every 5 minutes so I thought I’d join in and give my two cents. I don’t know how anyone can think there’s a dominant side and an underdog side this year.  Underdogs can’t catch a break because nothing goes their way. How does that apply this year? The original group of Foutte plus the players working with Foutte (Steve & Scottie) have won just as many comps and had as many twist/apps go in their favor as L6 and the people working with them. (JC & Sam) Being outsmarted doesn’t make you an underdog, it just makes you bad at BB.

This also isn’t a house of floaters, not that I think the term should be an insult anyway. Some of the best BB players floated and rode the middle until they needed to choose a side. We’ve had two strongly defined sides this year (reminds me of season 6 a little) with only 3 people who could have potentially floated out of 16. Scottie started out that way but even he isn’t really floating. He picked a side and people see it. He just tried to switch sides a couple of times so he’s more flip flopping. What Sam is doing can’t be considered floating either. We don’t have a term for what she’s done so far unless they have a nickname for the production employee who tidies up the house during an hoh lockdown. We’ve never seen her game before and a waste of a spot is the only thing I can think to describe it.  She isn’t playing, she isn’t floating, she’s just there.  JC is the only true floater this season and he’s done it amazingly. I didn’t have high hopes for his game the beginning of the season but he’s really surprised me. He’s slowly being outed and this week should end it but he pulled it off for a really long time.  Tyler, and now Brett have worked undercover for L6 but certainly not floated.


I’ll move on to some highlights from yesterday and there were few:

  • The day began with RS pouncing on Sam as soon as the woke. I’m glad RS had game on her mind and is fighting to stay. She’s terrible at it but I’m still happy she’s doing something. She gave Sam a lesson  on chess pieces and said that’s how she needed to view the game. RS gave the order people needed to go and Sam balked at the mention of KC, Scottie and JC. Sam told RS she had her back in the game in her Sam way. Sam told RS after some reflection, she realized she was jealous of how pretty Haleigh is and her own insecurities were causing her problems. She said she’s been trying to impress Brett but needs to stop because she’s making herself stressed. She asked RS not to repeat anything. She told RS. She planned to spend some time getting to know Hay better on a personal level to make sure she’d be a good juror. (Naturally, how can she vote for the best personality if she doesn’t know enough about them. She’d have to rely on how the played the game! What a shameful and terrifying idea!)
  • RS didn’t waste time telling Hay what Sam said about being jealous. Hay said she’d try to make herself more ugly. RS also revealed (the night before) about Sam talking about her past and told Hay that Sam didn’t come out and say it but it sounds like “Sam cheated on her man and they broke up shortly before coming here.” Sam did talk about this once before early in the season but I doubt she’d be ok with RS telling Hay about it.
  • I’ll mention some noteworthy comments from Hay, RS, Scottie and Fessy but almost their entire day was spent obsessing over what Tyler would do with the veto. They talked about how dumb Tyler is if he doesn’t use the veto on RS…while talking about backdooring him next week. Hay said she won’t vote for Tyler in the end if he doesn’t do what she wants this week. Hay talked about how easily influenced Tyler is and how the last person to talk to him before ceremony would get their way. They’re convinced the other side isn’t working together and doesn’t talk any game. RS wonders if their “heads are even in it.” Hay briefly wonders if Angela, KC and Tyler could’ve been working together the entire time. She said Kaitlyn would have been in the way. Scottie said they could’ve used Kaitlyn as a shield and needed her to get rid of Swaggy. (as usual, even when they head the right direction, they detour) Hay decides they’re giving the other side too much credit. Hay says they’re idiots, floaters and boring. She recently said the thought of Angela on the show makes her sick because she’s so boring. RS chimes in alot to call them bitches. Hay makes fun of Angela sucking up to her this week. (I haven’t witnessed it) They say the other side never talks or says anything. (This is the typical narcissistic ‘If I wasn’t there for it, it didn’t happen’ situation) Fessy first laughed at Hay and RS for thinking Tyler sold use the veto on RS. He had a game talk with Tyler and is now convinced he’ll do it.
  • RS goes over everything with JC  she’s told everyone else all day and lets him know Angela and Tyler will be her targets. RS and her alliance have already agreed they shouldn’t give JC any more info because they don’t trust him but she can’t shut up…ever. She said an IOU is the only thing Angela has with Tyler and says that can’t be good for very long.  She spends the entire day on repeat with “Tyler would be stupid not to take our deal, those bitches, blah blah, blah.”
  • KC and Sam talk about how KC is worried and thinks she’ll be going back otb.  I think she’s laying the groundwork for the decision Sam’s going to have to make soon. Sam wants to know if know if Tyler’s still okay and is worried that Angela has taken her spot with them. KC assures her they still have their 3.  Tyler isn’t putting much time in with Sam anymore and I think that’s a mistake. They may not need her vote this week but if she doesn’t leave, he could need it next week.
  • Tyler told JC the other side was on to him with flip votes and pretending to be confused on Thursdays. (Scottie said stuff about wanting JC out so he’s using it) He said them riding the middle had to end and they couldn’t get away with it anymore. JC questioned why he was using the veto on Angela and said he wouldn’t voter her out. Tyler explained that he wouldn’t but Sam would. JC confirms he’ll keep KC by saying “it’s out of the question” but Tyler knew he meant that it wasn’t to be questioned. Lol  JC told Tyler he was his #1 and he’s done with the other side after this week.
  • Tyler and Hay talked about his decision and he said he didn’t know. She said “that’s fine” in a “hell no, it’s not fine” way. She sticks with her pitch of telling him she hasn’t won a veto to use on him yet to prove herself to him. He asked her if she’d had a hacker power to use on him. She said yeah but it didn’t count. (She feels like that was last week and he needs to get over it and move on)
  • KC and Angela said they know Hay and Fes are in a shomance even tho they’re trying to hide it. KC heard him come downstairs in the morning to pretend like he hadn’t slept in the hoh room. (True) They want to put them otb together. Angela I’d excited for another blindside. She really takes pleasure in sticking it to the other side. To be fair, Angela and KC say mean things about Hay and RS too. RS and Hay do it more often so it may seem like I’m only pointing it out on one side. I’m not and know all of them do it. I didn’t care for Hay making comments about Tyler’s dad dying and connecting that to why he’s a pushover and is led around by women (he isn’t) but for the most part, I don’t get riled up over what they say about each other. It’s just venting and most of them do it.
  • Fes said he really liked playing corn hole with Scottie because he could add the numbers so fast. Scottie mentioned it only being 1 thru 6. Lol

I’ll be so glad when the veto ceremony is over because RS will still complain but maybe we’ll get some new sentences at least. They’ll be mad and surprised even tho they shouldn’t. This week should be good and I don’t see it slowing down. Soon, Tyler’s side will be obvious, (should’ve been already) Brett may have to give up his new fake friends and JC’s floating should be over too.

Have a great Monday!

    Hive is delusional if they think they have the votes to keep RS this week

    Yay for another interesting week!

    Does JC really have another flip vote in him? I think he would be happy if L6 lost a #. I didn’t think so at the beginning but he is pretty smart and definetly knows if he votes out all of five he will be the first casualty of Tyler’s side.

  4. TerryD

    Great update Mel! I didn’t get to watch the hacker comp either. I reset my recording settings and so that won’t happen again. I love this season of BB. It used to be one of the few shows hubby and I watched together but last season spoiled that. Thanks Paul…now I watch it alone.

    I can’t stand watching Hay and fessy canoodling it’s so awkward. Most of the time he’s trying to kiss her but it appears that it kinda makes her uncomfortable. I did like that they showed her and Brett cuddling up and the music they played reminded me of porn music. It seems to me she’s into Brett more than fessy. But i guess the Ho can switch it up with whomever she needs something from at the time. I wish she were gone.

      lets hope Level 6/4 wins HOH next week, Ha-Ho will go then

    • dfdsgs

      She spent an hour in the HaveNot Room with Scottie laying his head in her lap and playing in his hair as well. This is all within 24 hours of her finally giving in and letting Fessy kiss her for the first time.

    • danmtruth

      I have said that Fess has no game He is very awkward with her Its like he is doing things he has heard his friends brag about doing with girls Not sure if she has broke him down so much He just does not seem to have ANY confidence in what he is trying to do
      Thats the difference Bret has the confidence that Hay likes and is someone she can show off to her friends Fess looks good but is no challenge and is just a play thing

    Posted this on another thread but it was pretty far down, and I think it bears repeating.

    I think that the best move for L6 would be to use the veto on Angela. Per Haleigh, Kaycee will go up, but putting up JC would be smarter since they are unsure of his vote. Kaycee during the final speech before the vote admits that she is the Hacker and will be vetoing Brett’s vote while in reality she veto’s Fessy. Allows Brett to continue to play the mole and continues to sow discord on that side of the house since they can’t figure out any of the votes week to week anyway.

    The final vote will then come down to JC for either Kaycee staying or a tie.

    Rockstar Evict;

    KC Evict;
    Fessy – Canceled

    • Avatar

      Sam could actually keep Kaycee, its a toss up with Sam

    • Avatar

      Thanks for breaking it down! It helps! And do you think Hayleigh would nominate Sam instead of Kaycee? Or is her mind already made up?

      • dfdsgs

        I think FOUTTE believe that they have Brett and Sam locked up. Brett, they are wrong on, unless he takes this moment to flip on the alliance, he has been working with all season (which I don’t see happening). Sam is a flip vote but I see her voting for Rockstar to stay because of the personal relationship and Rockstar deserves to be in the house BS.

        Now if FOUTTE does put up Sam that would be amazing for L6 and would most likely seal Rockstar going home. Doing so would also destroy Hayleighs chance of working with Sam and her with FOUTTE. Sam would be firmly back onto the L6 side after such a move.

        I won’t put anything past this group since so many of the votes have been close but the way things are looking unless something drastically changes Rockstar is going home just a matter of how close the final vote is. L6 seems to have four votes at a minimum regardless of who goes up.

        L6 votes some combination depending on nominations of:
        Tyler – POV winner cannot be nominated
        Kaycee – Hacker will cancel a vote

        FOUTTE votes:
        Haleigh – HOH will only vote in a tie
        Fessy – will most likely be cancelled by the hacker
        Rockstar – On the block

    • JayP

      Could be wrong but I think it was announced to the hgs whose vote the hacker was cancelling before the vote.

    • oowee

      I think Jay is correct, I don’t think Tyler ever entered the rom to vote.

    • LynnD

      They are told who the hacker cancels before anyone votes.

  7. danmtruth

    You would think after this week they would figure it out about the votes Still with the way the HIVE /TGTCSS/F-Troop logic works ( or docent) They will think Sam flipped They already suspect Jc Hay ego wont letter her believe that Bret is not fascinated by the chance to be with her That he did not vote the way she wants Than there is always the stand bye blame it on Scottie Always go back to the classic with this group So plenty of scapegoats Just never the right ones

  8. Avatar

    Watching them on AD I just had to laugh (at the hive lol). Wow, just wow! Ready for Fess and Hay to go!

  9. hogwild

    To quote Aerosmith same old song and dance rockstar gone Thursday and hive won’t be able to figure out how it happened.

    Not only does Haho bite her nails down to the quick, she also pops her knuckles, and it’s loud when her hands are near the microphone.

    Does Brett know that Sam has the hots for him? If so, then he might want to start flirting with her for votes.

  13. Zach

    I wonder if it would work… If Haleigh, Fes, Rockstar and Scottie all said they would not vote for him if he used his veto, no matter who he is with in the final 2. That would ultimately means he loses the game 5-4. Food for thought at least this week.

    • dfdsgs

      Talk about an extremely bitter jury for no reason. I can understand why the jury hated Paul last year with the way he played the game but if you start having people say if you play a veto we won’t vote for you in the end then big Brother as we know it is over.

      • Zach

        It’s how the game is going. And I definitely see one side of the house as bitter. Which means he would likely need to take one of them to final two with him so he has the numbers in jury.

      • caRyn

        FOUTTE has proven to have thoughts/ideas that don’t add up. There is no way we could even make up half the stuff they consider to be options or their truth. Their level of game play as a whole is nothing like we have seen in the past. Pinky swear.

    • Sassy

      Whoever makes it to the final, has to take one of their own alliance members. That way the other side HAS to consider game. If it’s one person from each side, they may vote along party lines.

  14. dfdsgs

    Who else misses the food/luxury comps from the early days? If I could bring one thing back it would be that.

    Crazy Train opening her meds to take with her coffee.


    • danmtruth

      I keep going back thinking she might not just be scaring everyone But man she is scary good if she is faking it No one is that good

      • NKogNeeTow

        Dan, every since that breakdown she had with HaHo the other night, I’ve been wondering about her. At first I was really afraid for her, then I started to wonder. What I’ve been wondering is, suppose the way she’s acting really is an act. What if when the house gets down to 4 or 5 people, she sits in her DR sessions and tells us that her plan has worked out perfectly. That she played crazy, knowing that no one would want to get rid of her because she’s a number and one of them dragged her to F2. She could then tell the Jury what a great game she played because no one ever suspected she was playing. If she was sitting next to Tyler, all of The Hive would give her their vote because they dislike him so. If she’s sitting next to Scottie, she would get their vote because they think he is an evil genius and the fact that she outsmarted a genius would make them happy.

        Just a random thought. Carry on…

      • caRyn

        What if Sam has had some weak moments and let them get the best of her and really wanted to self evict? Really wanted out of the BB house? Then if she reached F2 say it was her plan all along. Play her weakness to her advantage.
        I am on the fence with her – Jekyll & Hyde.

    aint happening

  17. ladycobra

    I can’t keep up with all the thoughts that the Hive has. Now RS thinks Angela is the hacker and framed KC. She picked Tyler to play because she knew he would take her down. RS is all over the place.

  18. Houseguest Doug

    What time approximately is the Vote Meeting today?

    * If the Veto is used Angela would come down. Who goes up?

    1. KC – If KC is up she will cancel a Fez Vote. RS goes home with a vote of 4-2
    2. JC – If JC is put up RS goes home vote 4-2
    3. Sam – If Sam is put up RS goes home vote 4-2
    4. Scottie – If Scottie is up Scottie goes home vote 6-0
    5. Brett – If Brett is up RS goes home vote 4-2
    6. Angela – If Angela stays on the block. RS goes home vote 4-2
    7. Faysel – If Faysel goes up. Faysel goes home Vote 4-2

    Odds are no matter who RS is up against other than two people from her own Alliance she is going to Jury House this week.

    We are due for a double eviction night soon. Wouldn’t shock me if it is Thursday.

    Also, no “ZING BOT” or “OTEV” yet?

    • Cindy

      This veto was the otev competition and since Katelyn screwed up her second chance i doubt there will be a double eviction. I could be wrong about the double eviction but i just don’t think there will be one.

  19. Cindy

    We have reruns… Can it be veto already? I’m so excited
