Big Brother 20 – Thursday Recap

Good morning! There’s a lot of coffee being poured this morning by feed watchers who stayed up to see the hoh comp last night. I’m one of them so this recap may be a mess today. Steve covered everything from start to finish so there isn’t much I can add anyway. I also have to move some furniture around before work this morning.  My son is changing apartments and I’m storing a few things for him, big things unfortunately. I was already keeping a ping pong table for him and hoped the apartment change wood give him more room, not less! If it doesn’t leave soon, I’ll probably start asking you guys for repurposing suggestions for a ping pong table…maybe I could contact Sam when the show’s over, she’d probably have some great ideas!


Tyler won the hoh “endurance” comp but Haleigh really hung in there. It only went for around an hour so I don’t know about the endurance part. (I’ve never been swinging and spinning on a rope while being hit by oversized pies so I shouldn’t judge how long it should go) They looked like they were extras in a horror movie last night. I kept thinking blueberry pie would’ve been a choice more visually appealing but hey, not my call. Speaking of visually appealing, Julie looked great last night and right after I insulted her stylist too. (In my defense, I said earlier in the season that I thought she might have a new one this year because the choices have been better…most weeks)

Not much happened yesterday before the live show. It became clear production did have a stern talk with JC. From what I could gather, JC was told it would be better if JC stayed out of Tyler’s bed and I’d assume he was scolded over the bathroom door prank. JC made comments to Scottie later in the night about production not letting them be together anymore so they broke up. (I’m sure this is JC trying to save face, as they say) Brett spilled to Tyler the things JC had been saying about targeting Angela & KC. JC also talked to Tyler and agreed to take out Haleigh before splitting them up. (I’m mentioning this so people realize they didn’t change their minds because Tyler became the hoh, it happened before) Haleigh talked to Fessy about the night before with JC and said she felt really bad. She said she knew “they were eating JC’s ass” and said she didn’t want him to get in any trouble. She told him she’d started the bathroom pranking, not JC and he was only paying her back. (It sounded like most pranks gone wrong, she was pissed in the moment but once it was over, she thought it was funny) I think she meant it because this is how Haleigh started her day the morning after it happened:


She jumped on top of JC and Brett in bed, laid on top of them and moved to get between them once JC said she was hurting his balls. Twitter is still “demanding” a public flogging for JC but for me, if they don’t care, I’m not going to care anymore either.

The live show had a nice amount of nervous energy I like to see on Thursdays. This is Angela giving Fessy some side eye during his speech:


I noticed Haleigh didn’t say anything about Fessy in her speech. I was glad she got through to Fessy and he went with a handshake instead of picking Julie up. I also realized listening to Haleigh’s goodbye msg, Fessy probably thought it was worth leaving just to get to hear that because she said the things he’s been wanting to hear.

Next came the announcement of the battle back. I was so happy to see genuine dread and unhappiness from the players when Julie said it. There was none of that fake excitement we usually get. Haleigh was the only person who was happy which was also a sincere reaction. This is Angela when they were told:

At first, I thought Bayleigh coming back could give us the most unpredictable week. There were two moments I realized I was wrong. During the jury house segment, she was just as much of a ahole to RS as she’d been in the house so she hadn’t toned down being so condescending. (A player who intentionally told the opposing side about a secret power app didn’t have the right to make RS feel even worse about a mistake she made in the heat of the moment) The second thing was when Julie asked Bayleigh who she’d like to see coming out of the house. They were already in position and about to play the battle back and she said Tyler or Angela. Why would you want such stiff competition trying to get back in? She was a bad player before she left and this convinced me that she’d be a bad player if she returned. Here is some last minute Foutte strategy before they sent Scottie back in. (Run Scottie, Run! Don’t listen to them!)


Once Scottie was back, the lying kicked into high gear. Brett faked his happiness, Angela threw out that she’d got Fessy out “for him” and later, Haleigh put a spin on what had happened the week he left. Sam made sure to tell him she’d stopped smoking (big announcement) and that she’d been taking out the trash. (not big announcement) I do think most of them were happy Scottie was the one who came back since it had to be someone. JC did a terrible job of pretending to be happy. He knows it’s bad for him:

JC was the most convinced there couldn’t be a battle back in order for the schedule to work. After Scottie was welcomed by all, JC told Brett it wasn’t right or fair to the other players. (Welcome to Big Brother JC!)  JC’s made the mistake of allowing a full week for the end of the game when in reality, the schedule moves faster than that at the end and that’s why his math is off.  I think this is what he was trying to calculate here:


Sam was happy to see Scottie but after everyone hugged, she went off by herself and did her isolation thing. She eventually talked to Angela and said she was going to vote Fessy out but after his speech, she questioned some things and voted Haleigh out instead. Angela told her that’s why Fessy did it and told her it was no big deal. (Angela had told Sam how people were voting earlier in the day) Sam said that was the reason she went off by herself for a while but after she thought about it, she knew the things Fessy said couldn’t be true. Angela assured her they weren’t.  Sam said she trusted Angela and if she won HOH, she wouldn’t put her up because Angela had been HOH twice and hadn’t done it to her. She told Angela how great she felt about her and brought up that Angela cooked and cleaned. (BB has become “who keeps the best house?”) Sam got Angela to say that she’d always pick Sam over Haleigh.  Later, Sam explained the same reasons for her vote to Haleigh. (we know Sam was always planning to vote her out and Hay knows it too)

Haleigh told Scottie that she’d accidentally hit Sam in the face when everyone went to hug him.  (Accident?) Later, she apologized to Sam.


Scottie told them alot about the jury house and how nice it was. He said he thought Steve was a cop because of something he’d seen during one of his interviews. I’m guessing it was the Off the Block appearance with Ross and Marissa. All the evicted hg’s give Ross & Marissa a small gift and Steve’s was a badge. (another production screw up) We also found out production took all of Scottie’s stolen storage room loot away. He said he’d made it out with a deodorant that production overlooked so Brett said at least that was something. (Lol)  The most annoying part of this conversation was the feeds kept cutting when it was mentioned. They let us watch him take it and hide it in his suitcase but we weren’t allowed to hear about it after?

Before the comp began, Haleigh started wondering if they had time to eat and Angela really encouraged it and said they didn’t know how long the comp would go. This was funny since we knew what they were about to do…food, not a good idea! Scottie told them what he saw in the yard and what he thought the comp would be so his time away hasn’t taught him much either. (Why tell? I’d have pulled a JC and started trying to feed them)

Hoh comp happened but Steve covered it already so here’s a few pics instead:

Brett getting hit in the face:


Haleigh just before the pie took her down:

Sam watching and hoping like hell Haleigh didn’t win:


JC’s potential hoh win slipping away and possibly his game in the near future:

L6 learned their lesson from last week and had a quieter and more subdued celebration. Angela and Tyler shared their own private hug too:


The usual chit-chat happened after the comp. I don’t think any of it was surprising stuff. Haleigh put a spin on Fessy making a deal with Tyler & Angela the week before. She left herself out of it. Scottie asked why she didn’t tell him she was voting him out and said he’d wished she’d been honest with him. Scottie tried a cover story for telling Fessy he had feelings for Haleigh. (in case Fes told her) Haleigh asked Tyler to tell her ahead of time if she was going otb. Angela & Tyler talked about needing to keep Brett and JC close and not let on they’re irritated with them. Tyler announced his hoh room may not be as available as it was during his last hoh. (wonder why?) Tyler wants Angela to sleep up there before she becomes a have not. (it will be her turn in the rotation)

I’m out of time today (furniture and work is still waiting) but I’ll look over my notes and include anything interesting or game relevant that I left out in tomorrow’s recap.  I’d expect to see Haleigh and Scottie otb later today. Thanks to a DR leak last night of Tyler saying it to someone in production, it’s almost a sure thing. Check back for Steve’s nom info later today and have a great Friday!

    THANKS Mel lots went on last night
    Watching Fess leaning over the hand rail and almost flipping over Had to have had production nervous Might need to rethink the comp Say contestants must keep one foot on the ground
    Angela did not have a poker face when the battle back was announced Fess speech might have stung a bit more with how emotional she has been the last few days
    scottie still gives out more info than he gets Might have been him trying to get in good with TY Or more likely just being dumb

  2. Painter1

    I find it funny ,while fallowing posts here about the HOH comp and on Instagram it seems like two different shows were airing. On Junkies people were saying Hay was being favored by production by not getting slimmed and hit by the pie. On IG people were saying the opposite that Hay was being treated unfairly and Tyler was the production favorite. I don’t have the feeds but I have been here since season8 but just think how funny some see it the other way.Thanks to everyone who posted last night also and keeping us in the now.

  3. hogwild

    Scottie and Hayleigh on the block in all probability maybe JC but I wouldn’t put money on that.

    • Alda

      One of them said during the night that JC would be the replacement if Scottie wins POV.I wonder why not Sam?

      • hogwild

        It seems like JC is starting to really irritate the hell out of people where it seems as though Sam has kind of leveled off.

      • Colby

        Probably to make sure Haho goes. Some may be inclined to vote out Sam.
        Also probably to keep Sam calm and not piss her off since she isn’t the target, to make sure she wouldn’t target him.

      • danmtruth

        Colby good points about keeping the target on HaHo It also might be a test to see if Jc will trust the others Like when Zach would not go on the block with the detanator
        Good to keep Sam calm unless you are planing on her walking out the door As she will be unbearable the next week

      • LindsayB

        I think Tyler knows it would be better for someone besides him to nominate Sam. He’s been telling her they are good this whole time and that he has to stay distant from her to throw everyone off. Him nominating her would create an emotional response that could carry over to jury. JC won’t like being a replacement nom but he would at least understand it is a game. Sam still doesn’t know where she is or why she’s there.

  4. Shivani33

    When I began watching the comp, JC was already sitting next to Angela, so I missed his attempt to swing. Did he even try?

  5. LO1004

    Thank you, Mel – we appreciate you! I have to say I pay attention to Julie’s wardrobe too. The dress was cute, but a belt would have made the look.

    I love that comp and it was awesome to see Hay and Tyler fight it out. You could tell they were both struggling, but there was no way he was letting her win. One of the better comps we’ve seen so far this season and I’m excited for all the sound bites they will add. As much as JC needs to see the block, if Tyler wants to get Hay out, he needs to put Hay and Scottie side by side because if he wins veto, he will pull her down. I guess we’ll see!

  6. Alda

    I watched the comp on BB.Haleigh didn’t get hit in the face like the others.But,she certainly got slammed into the pie.

    • Helen

      Yeah after she told production to give it all they got!!
      Out of all of them I think Brett got slimed the worse…they were nailing him…..
      Haleigh didn’t get much until towards the end of the comp…even then it was mostly yuck from the pie…

    • Colby

      Yep. She smarted off to them and said ‘can you hit me harder next time?’
      Bob said “here, hold my beer!” LOL 🙂

    I don’t think anyone will be surprised to see Scottie and Hayleigh on the block later today. I think JC is on deck if need be as a replacement nom if one of them wins Veto and can take themselves down (which somehow I doubt). No one knows who will be HOH next, but if Level 6 (or 4 or whatever) is in control and next Thursday is a live double eviction? I think that’s the time to pull the plug on JC. I think he’s wearing thin with people in the house. I don’t think the house could take a full week of him on the block, with him campaigning to stay, and having it over and done with in less than an hour?

    Might be best for everyone involved.

  8. ElaineB

    Now Fess can hang out with Bay and RS. Lol. He can ponder how the man he put out, got right back in. He can dwell on how Hay is in the house with Scottie and Brett. Fess will be having the ‘best week ever’!

  9. Avatar

    JC seemed very subdued when he cast his eviction vote yesterday. He must have gotten reamed by production.

  10. GoodGame

    What is the total wins now for Tyler???
    He is climbing that BB Legend Ladder for me!

  12. Helen

    Who will be the first to start trying to make deals with Tyler to stay off the block this week? Scottie or Haleigh?

  13. Colby

    I think when Tyler puts up Scottie he needs to tell him it is because it is what everyone in the house expects, but that he is not his target and it will prevent him from saving Haho (the target) if he won veto. Then maybe Scottie will still want to work with Tyler and won’t target him. Since the numbers are getting so small he will need someone to work with.

      They all talk about how weird Scottie is. I’m wondering if he will be the target instead of Haleigh?

      • Colby

        I don’t know.
        Scottie is a comp threat, but she is too.
        Tyler wants Haho gone because he knows he is her target.

      • Helen

        Tyler and Scottie have always had an odd relationship…if you go back to the beginning of the game it was Scottie,Sam and Tyler …Scottie got turned during his HOH by the hive and lost his trust with Sam and Tyler over her power app(her not telling him)…I don’t think pre eviction Tyler was ever Scottie’s target…might have changed post eviction being around Bay and RS but he told Julie just before he reentered he would try to team up with Tyler…he is a wildcard though

      • Sassy

        It’s best for Ty to keep Scottie, but better for everyone else that he get rid of him. I think he will be the target.

      • AIO_7

        I hope not; I want Heidi gone.

      • mm22

        I hope Scottie’s not the target-Haleigh has to go

    • danmtruth

      Will tell Scottie he is a pawn but Scottie knows pawns go home lol At this point either Scottie or Hay would be good to get out

    • mona77450

      Does Tyler have a final 2 with. Scottie…yet?

  14. Houseguest Doug

    I am going to step way out on a limb her and guess Tyler will put up Scottie & Haliegh this week. If one of them doesn’t get the VETO I would assume Scottie will be sent packing again. If one of them comes down I would dare say JC is going up on the block and I am sure Haliegh or Scottie will go home.

    L6 wants to dismantle Floutte once and for all. Despite Production (AGAIN) trying to manipulate the game and trying to balance the books. One can’t they see that side of the house puts the “U” in useless.

  15. AIO_7

    I’m having trouble making this out: Is that Tyler sleeping by himself, or is Angelica somehow snuggled up in there with him.


  16. Tinkerbell

    My final two fantasy- Brett and KC. As far as I’m concerned, Tyler has blown his game. If he and Angela have come this far, and can’t keep it in their pants this close to the end, they don’t deserve to win. I would love to see them on the block together at some point. Ang and Tyler are so blatant with their under-the-blanket feely-touchiness. They’re in bed as we speak. I know they’re young, horny-n-hot……but they’re playing for the big prize. How quickly they have forgotten. Brett deserves to win, and KC has been a sweetheart. They are both deserving. The rest of the yaaayyy- whooos can take a hike to the jury house.

  17. AIO_7

    That was an epic finish to the comp. last night. When Heidi hit the deck it sounded and looked like those squids that were hitting the ground in the vetio comp.; she was on her belly with arms and legs splayed.
    Brett looked like a fat little boy sitting in a mess after he came down on his butt with a loud PLOP.

  18. AIO_7

    Of course Heidi has to show up …


  19. mona77450

    Mel mentioned that Angela and Tyler are aggravated at JC and Brett. I understand about JC but am confused about why they are mad at Brett. Is it because he hasn’t won any comps? Can someone explain?

  20. AIO_7

    Heidi is doing everything she can to to turn Tangela against Martha.

  21. danmtruth

    HaHo is pushing Sam big time So HaHo thats a great idea why don’t YOU go on the block as a pawn against her Than win the pawn to keep her on the block Sounds like a HIVE plan

  22. AIO_7

    New thread, Ya’ll.
