Big Brother 25 – Halloween Feed Updates!
Good afternoon, everyone, and Happy Halloween!
It feels weird writing that as the first and only other time I’ve blogged today was back during the BBOTT season which was still the best season in BB History for live feed viewers. If you watch it back on Paramount+, there is a good chance it would feel just like any other season but the thing that made that special is feeds were actually on 24/7.
That means even during competitions we would get to watch them ALL play out live. So the timed comps we’d hear them try to narrate the comp as they’re supposed to do as they’re playing it. Ever notice how players seem to do that during solo timed comps? They’re encouraged to so we don’t hear just total dead silence. It’s why you’ll often see more of the comps from people who do it better and those who don’t you’ll see just brief clips. Just a fun BTS info.
Back to this season… I felt I could ramble a bit because we’re at a completely slow period of this season and this week. Noms are set, veto is done, and we’ve reached the point where the power group is spending their time crapping on the people on the block so they feel better about themselves for voting them out. That’s a tradition that goes back many, many seasons and it just kind of happens that way. Especially the later the season gets.
People forget that these people form friendships over 2-3 months, so when they say they’re really sorry about what they’re doing, most of the time they’re honest. It’s a part of the game that has to happen and even if you’re a rival with someone, you’re still usually friends and it hurts to crush their dreams…. unless you absolutely hate the person and really are happy to see them go.
Having Cirie and Felicia on the block is one of those examples. They really were mother figures to people – especially Matt and Jag. So that is why they’ve been pretty awful this week. Not that I’m excusing them at ALL. They said they should torture Fefe this week so she’s thrown off for the next HoH. They’re also doing strange behavior like last night.
Last night, Jag, Bowie, Matt, and Cirie were sitting around the couch and for some reason, Jag was talking about the final 3 completely wrong. This is what he said….
The winner of the next HoH gets into the final 3. That’s correct.
That person is then ineligible to play in the first part of the final HoH. Incorrect
The first round is a mental comp. Also incorrect
The second round is the loser of the first round versus the previous HoH. Also incorrect
The second round is endurance. Also incorrect
Why did he say this? People speculate that he was intentionally misleading so someone would want to throw the next HoH but personally I think he’s just clueless.
If you’re wondering how the next few weeks should work, I’ll explain. This is assuming they do the standard final 3 format but I’m not sure how they’re going to do that because they’re going into the final week with 4 instead of 3.
Anyway, the way it TYPICALLY works is this:
– HoH is just safety and really nothing else. Noms are irrelevant because…
– PoV is king. The veto winner is safe and is the lone vote for who to evict. They essentially decide the final 3. The HoH can win veto, but their power still comes from the veto and not the HoH. They can use the veto and decide who casts the lone vote or they can keep noms the same.
All 3 play in the first round regardless of the previous HoH
First round is almost always an endurance style comp
First round winner goes straight to round 3
Second round is a veto style comp where the two losers from round 1 play each other. Winner goes to round 3
Round 3 is played on finale night and the winner is the sole voter and decides who the final 2 will be.
Wow, rambled long enough, here are updates…
Matt and Felicia in the kicthen making some breakfast too
Jag got a mask (from a superhero comp I think)
Bowie and Matt study the have not room
Fe agrees and said they can have dinner in 5 hours. (Is it sad I think about my days like this too? It’s sad ha)
They should retell the storyline of this season (spooky) hah
Cirie says that Cam said he was buying eveyone the first round and she is buying the second when they get out
Feeds cut ha
Fe says that Matt hasn’t been feeling well because of all his guilt of “being sucked into jags plan”
Fe asks if they are still on the same page. Bowie says “yep…absolutely. You have nothing to worry about.”
She says she is ready for the party to start tonight. She hopes they get costumes. Fe says she asked if the party was going to include videos. She thought they aren’t.
Jag then says to Bowie… my vote to evict! Bro, why even bother? Is it your mission to have a Paul-like jury management? He then goes on to explain the semantics “oh well she didn’t get specific. I’ll be voting for her which is to evict” yea I don’t think that’s going to matter when she’s voting for a winner
Spoiler: she is
Jag thinks fe must have misinterpreted something
Jag says that Matt is upset that they were making fun of him. Jag is annoyed because if Fe is just making all of this up “that’s not okay” Bowie asks if Matt believes Fe and jag replies he doesn’t know, he just knows that Matt is upset. Matt said “it’s fine” if they were making fun of him, but he just wants to know
They joke about how Matt has more of a mustache in one day than Cory did in a whole month
Fe said it’s just little things. Fe said they’re all jokes but they’re all digs.
Matt says that she’ll take jag over him. He says he could not have even gotten Bowie out this week if he wanted to because jag won the veto
Matt is working diligently on carving M ❤️s R I think!
Fe says he is going to have to believe in his self and stop being insecure. Ci says she is going to slap Matt and say, “You’re a gd Olympian!”
Ci says how is he going to beat 60 yr old women and sit in the chair in the end proudly?
She wishes he was here to slap Jag around! Put him in his place! Then she smiles and says she is gonna see him real soon.
He tells Bowie he is glad it wasn’t worse for the upcoming comps.
The house got 6 beers. She is pouring the extra beer in 5 glasses.
They talk about how his pumpkin carving was perfect. They said he went to college at 17. Fe says he must be a child prodigy! lol
Matt says she will not bet them in this next HOH or veto.
