Shirtless Winston and Brett

Friday, July 20, 2018 -- Afternoon

Weeklong Catchup I've been too busy to watch the show this week, but I do know that Scottie put up Winston and Brett, and Scottie won the POV and. obviously, did not use the POV, so the bros stayed on the block.

Now on to Thursday night's episode. Scottie is happy that one of the bros is going home. Winston thinks that Scottie is an idiot. Kaitlyn with her psychic jabber is a screwball. Tyler and the girls think that Winston makes faces, and that Brett may be better at competitions. Bayleigh, Haleigh, and Rockstar say Brett needs to go because he is persuasive. The female members of the Level 6 alliance and Sam say that they have to get rid of Winston because Brett is a bigger target.

Sort clip of Rockstar stuck on the rock wall. Kaitlyn tries some some sort of psychic thing. they Haleigh just talks her into climbing down.

Rockstar stuck on the wall Kaitlyn tells everyone that Tyler is voting out Brett. Scottie talks to Tyler, and they talk about whether they can trust the remaining Swaggy folks. Sam talks about her power app, and how it can make Winston or Brett a stronger ally.

Next up was a clip on Sam's family. Snooze! Then it was time for the vote. Brett is first to give a speech. He sais that he gets nervous in front of pretty girls. Then he gives this smarmy speech. Brett says that Rockstar told him that she was going to slip on the vote, and it would 6-5. Winston says there have been a lot of great duos.
  • Kaitlyn evicts Brett
  • Rachel evicts Winston
  • Kaycee evicts Winston
  • Rockstar evicts Brett
  • Faysal evicts Brett
  • Bayleigh evicts Brett
  • Angela evicts Winston
  • Haleigh evicts Brett
  • JC evicts Winston
  • Tyler evicts Winston
  • Sam evicts Winston
  • HOH competition

Winston is eliminated 6-5. Winston hugs Brett, but he doesn't say anything to anyone else. Boy is pissed! Then Rockstar goes on yelling because she says she didn't vote for her. Brett keeps on saying sorry, I don't know what to tell you. Rockstar keep on saying Brett is disgusting. Brett did a great thing by laying the seed of distrust in people. Winston realizes that his alliance voted against him. Winston says it is shocking to him. He thought he was close to them. Winston says that he threw the friendship bracelet that Sam made him to the ground as he left the house. Winston was hinting and begging for a battle back. But there isn't one.

Time for the endurance competition. It's the hold onto the wall endurance. And of course, there is rain to soak them as they hang on. I've already checked, and Sam won the competition.


Guys comfort Kaitlyn

Friday, July 13, 2018 -- Afternoon

Bye, Swaggy
Catching up on the eviction episode from last night. The show started with Kaitlyn hoping that Faysal will understand her actions. Winston wanted to party because Kaitlyn went through with it. Scottie can't think, but he is just happy that Tyler took him off the block. A bunch of guys go to the HOH room to comfort Kaitlyn. Bayleigh even went to give Kaitlyn a hug. As Bayleigh says, she is going to be nice nasty to Kaitlyn so Bayleigh can stay in the game. Bayleigh says that she couldn't understand why Kaitlyn didn't talk to Swaggy, and Kaitlyn says that she didn't feel she had a choice. Swaggy, Rockstar, Scottie, and Faysal talk about how they need 7 to get Swaggy safe. Swaggy says that they need to either have a tie or get Tyler. Bayleigh tells Swaggy that it will be easy to get the votes, and Swaggy won't go anywhere. Meanwhile Winston is starting to panic. It seems both Swaggy and Winston will only have 5 guaranteed votes.
Brett without a shirt and porn star mustache
Faysal tells Kaitlyn that he was blindsided by his best friend while the only it on the block. Faysal feels confused and exposed because of Kaitlyn and Swaggy turning on each other. Swaggy tells Kaitlyn that he swears on his dad's dead grave that he never said Kaitlyn was at the bottom of his totem pole. Kaitlyn cries. Swaggy says that he is in love with Bayleigh, and he doesn't want it taken away. When he is alone, Swaggy says that he is the best actor. Tyler can't believe that Kaitlyn is backing down. Tyler tells Kaitlyn that they have to look out for themselves. Meanwhile Swaggy is going on about how it's all an act on his part.

Swaggy then goes to talk to Sam to spread a sob story to get her vote. Sam says her heart is breaking talking to Swaggy. In DR, Swaggy says that it's all an act. Sam claims in DR that she is wondering if she should use the power app on Swaggy.

Swaggy listening to his own advice Swaggy gives his speech by saying he wants to go in and keep people safe. He goes on and on about they are there to play a game. Winston said he would keep it short and simple. Time for the vote.
  • Bayleigh evicts Winston
  • Brett evicts Swaggy
  • Kaycee evicts not so Swaggy Christopher
  • Tyler evicts Swaggy C
  • Rockstar evicts Winston
  • Haleigh evicts Winston
  • Faysal evicts Winston
  • Scottie evicts saying he appreciates the flattery, but he's nobody's good, and voted to evict Chris
  • JC evicts Swaggy C
  • Angela evicts Swaggy
  • Rachel evicts Swaggy
  • Sam evicts Swaggy
HOH tiebreaker Swaggy is out with a vote of 8-4. Swaggy hugs his alliance members. Swaggy takes some shirts from his bag and throws them to the audience. Jerk. Julie calls Swaggy on being blindsided both weeks. Swaggy said that the house is soft. Swaggy said that Haleigh didn't vote for him. Julie called him out and said that Haleigh voted to keep him. Julie shows Swaggy his pre-house video where Swaggy said he wanted to play in the middle of the pack. Swaggy said that he obviously didn't listen to his own advice. Faysal tells Swaggy in his video that he wanted to save him. Swaggy looked at his fingernails while Kaitlyn and Swaggy gave their farewells. Bayleigh cries because she is in love with Swaggy. Swaggy claims he does love her back. Swaggy also claims Tyler is soft and in love with Kaitlyn. Swaggy is an idiot.

The HOH competition is for the house guests to watch two videos, and then to be asked questions about the video. First question, and everyone but Kaycee gets it right. Tyler, Bayleigh, Angela, Haleigh, Winston, Brett, and JC are out. Third question, and Sam is out. Now the second video, watched by Faysal, Rachel, Rockstar, and Scottie. Fourth question, and they all get it right. Fifth question, and Rockstar is out. Sixth question and Faysal is out. Seventh question, and it's down to Rachel and Scottie. They both get the last question right. Tie breaker: in seconds, how long was the microchip mayhem competition from start to finish? Scottie says 1199. Rachel did math and was really over Scottie is HOH.

Jessica and Cody in the Diary Room

Thursday, July 12, 2018 -- Afternoon

POV and Swaggy C
I didn't watch BB on Sunday because I didn't think it would be that exciting. Kaitlyn put Scottie and Winston up so she could backdoor Swaggy C. Tyler won the top trending app, which will keep him off the block for one nomination meeting. Rockstar got the crap app. Tyler then went on to win the POV. He took off Scottie, and Swaggy C went up.

Wednesday's show started with the announcement that Cody and Jessica from last year would be on, and that they were engaged. Kaitlyn really hates Swaggy, which I can understand. His personality would probably rub be the wrong way if I were around him 24/7. POV dating game Winston is nervous about being up on the block. Brett and Winston talked about their nerves over the backdoor plan. Swaggy and the rest of the alliance are in the HOH room celebrating over Winston going out.

Time to pick for HOH. Kaitlyn picks Houseguest Choice, and she takes Faysal. Scottie picked Rachel. and Winston picked Tyler. Faysal goes to talk to Kaitlyn, and she tells him that she doesn't want him to win because it would be bad for his game since Swaggy is Faysal's best friend. Kaitlyn tries to explain to him that he doesn't have to play hard. He says he'll go out and win the veto.
Rachel getting yelled at
Jessica and Cody ring the doorbell and come into the house. JC says that Cody looked taller on TV. It's funny because Cody keeps on introducing himself. I really liked Cody. Jessica and Cody announced the competition, which is based around a dating app. They will have seven dating profiles, and they have to match the houseguests with the perfect dating spots. The houseguest who does it quickest wins. They have a max time of 20 minutes. Boogie, Jodi, Jose, Christmas, McCrae, Michelle, and Cody. Rachel goes through in a decent pace. Kaitlyn is rather stupid. Kaitlyn gets four wrong. Scottie is next, and he tries to movie as quickly as possible. Scottie can't run and think, and he keeps on getting his selections wrong. Swaggy in shock Winston is next. He seems to have issues with the selections too. He actually winds up timing out. Idiot! Tyler is up next. Tyler seems really on the ball. He gets it on the first try. Faysal is last. Faysal thinks the competition will be easy. He gets two wrong on the first try. Time for the reveal. Rachel finished in 5:49. Scottie finished in 18:20. Winston finished in 20:00. Tyler gets 5:29. Faysal gets 6:22. Kaitlyn finished in 13:29. Tyler gets the veto.

Kaitlyn starts to want to back out of backdooring Swaggy because her alliance will get mad at her. So Tyler has to calm her down. Kaitlyn doesn't like lying to Faysal. AS part of Rachel's crap punishment, a fat guy comes into the house to yell at her.

Kaitlyn decides to tell Haleigh that she's backdooring Swaggy. Haleigh goes into panic mode, but she can't tell Kaitlyn no. Then Haleigh tells Rockstar. Haleigh tells Rockstar that Tyler encouraged Kaitlyn to do it. Rockstar tells Faysal that she doesn't have a good feeling about Tyler and Kaitlyn. Faysal tells Rockstar that Angie is going up in place of Scottie. Fially Kaitlyn tells Faysal that she is going to put up Swaggy. She asks Faysal if she can have a hug, and Faysal says no.

Time for the veto meeting. Tyler uses the POV on Scottie. Kaitlyn cries and puts up Swaggy, who is shocked. Faysal is pissed, and Bayleigh is panicking. Kaitlyn cries and says that she is empowered to stick up for her truth. Barf! Swaggy says hs will make everyone's life a living hell.

Faysal and Haleigh snuggle in bed

Friday, July 6, 2018 -- Morning

Eviction and HOH
I missed Wednesday's episode of BB, which had Faysal win the POV. He didn't use it. The plan was going back and forth between Sam and Steve. We did find out that in order for Sam to get back in the house with the power she has, that she would have to win a competition.

Tyler wants to keep Sam in the house, and he warns her not to press anyone's buttons. Steve is talking to his group, and he tells them that they need seven votes to keep him. Sam's goal is to make herself seem invaluable. JC thinks that Sam will do anything he wants. I really don't like JC. It seems that he has been going around groping people, and he was reprimanded for it. Kaitlyn doesn't like Faysal hanging out with Haleigh so much.

Bayleigh and Swaggy in shock Tyler and the Level Six alliance wants to get rid of Steve, but they need to get a seventh vote without spilling the beans on the Level Six alliance. Winston thinks that they can get Kaitlyn without exposing the alliance. Haleigh tells Faysal that the two of them are not a good idea. Faysal and Haleigh are snuggling under the blankets, and Kaitlyn can't deal with the fact that Faysal is having a showmance with Haleigh and not with her. Kaitlyn cries to Tyler about how Faysal has not been honest with her. Kaitlyn feels like she is at the bottom of the totem pole. Tyler can use this to sway Kaitlyn's vote to Sam.
Time for the vote, and Steve and Sam get to give their spiel.
  • Scottie evicts Sam
  • JC evicts Steve
  • Swaggy C evicts Sam
  • Bayleigh evicts Sam
  • Rachel evicts Steve
  • Kaycee evicts Steve
  • Faysal evicts Sam
  • Haleigh evicts Steve
  • Angela evicts Steve
  • Brett evicts Steve
  • Winston evicts Steve
  • Kaitlyn evicts Steve
  • Rockstar evicts Sam
HOH competition The vote is 7-6 with Steve leaving. Boy, will he be shocked because he thought he had it locked down. Swaggy C and Bayleigh looked really shocked, and so did Faysal. Gotta love the drama. Steve goes out to talk to Julie.

Steve said that he was more than confident. He believed he had an alliance with the guys that he did not have. Steve said that he was fooled. Julie asked if him being the oldest was a problem in connecting. He says that the others saw him as a young father, and that they never excluded him from the games. Julie calls Steve out on being a bad undercover cop because he couldn't keep his fricking mouth shut.

Time for the HOH competition. It's the launch a ball into boxes. The boxes are setup to be tech jobs in a city, and the boxes have salaries. The person with the highest salary wins. Scottie is first with 40K. JC is next, and he is elimated because he lands in the street. Brett is next, and he is out. Winston gets 12K, and he is eliminated. Sam is next, and she gets 50K, so she is in the lead. Kaycee is next, and she gets 15K. Faysal is on the street and eliminated. Kaitlyn is next and gets 80K. Angela is next. She is in the street and eliminated. Bayleigh is in the street and eliminated. Swaggy is in the street and eliminated. Rockstar also lands in the street and is out. Haleigh gets eliminated. Rachel is last, and she in the street. Kaitlyn is HOH.

Level Six Alliance

Monday, July 2, 2018 -- Morning

Boring Brother
I am really having trouble getting into this season of Big Brother. a good deal of it is due to the disappointment that was season 19. The second part is the absolutely boring similarity with all the house guests. Well, I'm watching last night's episode now.

Tyler says that he put up Sam and Steve because they were the first out in the HOH competition, which basically means the others don't like them. Swaggy thinks that it was weak to go after weak targets. Sam realizes that the problem is that she's in the game as a robot,which is a really sucky thing to do. Tyler goes outside and cries because he is a wimp. But then he says that he just turned on the waterworks as a strategy to seem like a softy.
Have Not room
Meanwhile Sam is in the storage room, and she asks for people to come in one at a time to talk with her. Meanwhile, it becomes obvious that no one really feels a connection to Sam because she is a robot. Kaitlyn comes across as a real bitch, and Sam calls her out ans says that if Kaitlyn was a robot, she couldn't be in the hot tub with Faysal. After Kaitlyn leaves, Tyler tells Sam not to be so aggressive.

Steve thinks he has an awesome social game, and Scottie doesn't have any. They really seemed to get along. Scottie says that he trusts Steve 100 percent. Then we get the bedtime conversation with Swaggy and Bayleigh. Kaycee feels that she is out of things because she has to stay in a room. At least she can interact with others.

Faysal gets a crap app Then we see the Level Six alliance with Kaycee, Winston, Brett, Tyler, Angie, and Rachel. They say that they are rock solid. Then we see both Bayleigh and Swaggy talking separately about how they don't want a relationship with each other. Then at night time, they kiss noisely. Swaggy admits to himself that he came there for half a million dollars, not a showmance.

A white pigeon shows up in the yard, and Kaitlyn thinks that it's her dead grandfather Lou. Then we get to see Sam's problems as a robot. She feels very outcast from the group. As she cries, people gather around her, and JC tells her to stop being so full of negativity.Then slop is introduced. Tyler has to choose the first four have nots. Kaitlyn, Brett, Winston, and Scottie volunteer. The bed is a satellite dish.

Swaggy and Faysal try to make an alliance with Brett and Winston. Brett and Winston agree to keep themselves safe, and then Brett goes and tells the others in his alliance. Then we have a discussion of the alliance between Faysal, Swaggy, Kaitlyn, Rockstar, and Haleigh. They some up with some weird anagram.
Sam trends to a safety app
Then we get the BB App store disclosure. The top trending house guest gets to choose an app in the store. The least trending gets to select a crap app. Each will go into the App Store individually. One you win an app,you can't get another win.

Sam isn't sure what trending is. They have to place their hand on the scanner to find out if they were trending or not. Faysal got the crap app. He was the least trending house guest. Faysal takes the Hamazon punishment. He must eat all the ham in each delivery. Since Faysal is muslim,he doesn't eat ham. Swaggy is sure that he is trending because he runs everything. Swaggy doesn't understand how he is not trending. Sam finds out that she is the top trending. Sam chose Bonus Life. It allows her to get back into the game, and it's only good for the first four evictions. If it's not used by the fourth eviction, that person automatically gets in.

Meanwhile, Swaggy tells America to get it right next time. Sam will probably use the power this week because she will be voted out.

Yoga

Thursday, June 27, 2018 -- Evening

How Boring!
The BB show started this evening with Swaggy C overhearing the girls not in his group talking about Swaggy behind his back. Then Kaitlyn tells Swaggy that he did the best thing for his game. I'm really having trouble telling who these people are because the majority of them look very similar. Basically the guys are working out and looking at the girls. Then Kaitlyn leads a yoga session. Swaggy C was shocked that he he joined the hippy commune.
HOH competition
Swaggy, Kaitlyn, Rockstar, Haleigh, and Faysal make an alliance called the solid five. First HOH ocmpetition. Only the eight who are not save will be able to compete in the HOH competition. The eight who are safe don't compete. The HOH competition involved walking on a balance beam and putting 'deletion dots' in a competitor's tube. When someone has 10 balls in his/her tube, he or she is out. For some stupid reason, the people who are good are targeting the weakest people: Sam and Steve. Sam sees people putting balls in her tube, and she feels like she is a target, Duh! For some reason, no one was giving JC balls. Sam was the first out, then Steve, Kailyn, Winston, Angela, and then JC. It's down to Tyler and Bayleigh. Tyler started putting balls in Bayleigh's tube before JC, so Bayleigh was not happy. Tyler winds up winning the HOH.
Tyler hugs robot Sam
Sam cries about being shunned. No one cares about her. Winston starts making an alliance with Angela, Brett, Rachel, the girl in the rainbow outfit (Kaycee), and wants to add Tyler. Tyler plans on putting up Sam, Steve, and if one comes down, putting up Bayleigh. Sam, as a robot, talks to Tyler about how she is being shunned and an outcast. Tyler tells Sam that she is not a target. They hug. Meanwhile the other people try ot talk Tyler into putting Angela and Winston because they are strong players.

Tyler nominates Sam and Steve. He took the easy way out. Steve says he will get off the block. Sam has her feelings hurt, and she realizes that Tyler doesn't really like her.

All the house guests

Wednesday, June 25, 2018 -- Evening

Big Brother Starts
I have not been as excited about Big Brother this summer, but I figured I'd give it a chance, especially since it is the 20th season. My first thought was that the house guests all have really annoying voices. The only thing I can hope for is that there are no returning house guests. Then, annoyingly, the local station broke into the show with a rambling report about how it was going to rain. After repeating the non-news, slowly, for several minutes, we finally got back to the show.

Eight against eight Tyler, Bayleigh, Samantha, and Winston were the first four into the house. Bayleigh has such a fricking, screechy voice! Samantha sounds like a Jordan Lloyd wannabe. JC is really small. I think he may be a little person. Per usual, the majority of newbies claim they are Big Brother fans. The woman who goes by the name Rockstar is really on the ugly and weird side.

The house guests are called together and told that technology will take over the BB house. The first competition starts. Four men and four women are on each side. One half winds up in darkness, and the other half winds up hanging. The BB Super Computer has 'crashed.' Yep, sounds lame. The ones in the dark, and they have to find a folder that says Escape and Play. There are seven folders, and they have to find them. The one who doesn't find a folder will get a punishment. I really don't like CJ, so I hope he doesn't find a folder. Tyler finds the first folder, and he gets an escape, so he chooses to leave for the house. Then Bayleigh found a folder, and it was an escape, and she leaves. It seems that the house guests are finding the escape folder, and they have been choosing to leave the trash. Winston found the final folder, which means Kaycee doesn't have a folder. Angela will play in the competition to save her seven partners.
In the dark
The second group of eight is hanging, and they have to pick up blocks and spell the word house guest. The first person who finishes will competition for the other seven against Angela. The last to finish will get the punishment. Samantha says that she is a good speller. We'll see. Swaggy C won the competition. Scottie got the second place. Faysal almost won, but knocked his blocks does. He has to rebuild, but others are knocking down their blocks. Steve is out third,a nd Faysal was fourth. Kaitlyn finishes next with the help of her spirit god. Cray-cray. It's down to Rockstar, Haleigh, and Sam. Rockstar gets the blocks, and it's down to Haleigh and Sam. Haleigh just beats out Sam. Sam doesn't seem that bright. She cries about being sent home.

Building blocks Bayleigh tries to give Swaggy some tips about intimidating people. Swaggy gives himself a pep talk to go out and win. Swaggy decides to talk to Angela about making a deal to keep them both safe. I like Swaggy because when Angela says she will only keep her platform folks safe, he decides that he has to win. The goal is to be the last house guest standing on a surfboard that is on a pole. As the boards wiggle, they have to balance on the boards. Swaggy says that he has to win.

Angela versus Swaggy C
The first web page comes up, and the two are hit with doors, the back door. Then another page comes up, and a chopping block tries to knock them off. Then its targets and twists. Swaggy admits that his leg is twitching, but he has to hold on. Then Angela is the first to drop. Swaggy thinks it's great that he gets to decide everyone's fate. Swaggy will have to pick the movie in groups to keep people safe. That's a bit of a twist.

Swaggy was going to keep his group safe: him, Brett, Rockstar, and Rachel. Bayleigh tries to save her group: Sam, Winston and Tyler. Then Angela cam in with Kayleigh and her group. I would sacrifice her group because I hate JC. Swaggy has to figure out who to save. Kaycee comes back in with a stupid rainbow unitard.
Sam as robot
Sam comes back as a robot. Sam can hear and see everything. Kaycee has to stay in the room she's in when her pinwheel spins. When Sam hears 'robot offline,' she can go to the diary room and come in a herself. When she hears 'robot online,' she has to come back as a robot.

The house guests have to sit in their move in groups: Group 1: Sam, Winston, Bayleigh, and Tyler, Group 2: Steve, JC, Angela, and Kaitlyn. Group 3: Scottie, Haleigh, Faysal, and Kaycee. So that means that Sam, Winston, Bayleigh, Tyler, Steve, JC, Angela, and Kaitlyn are non safe. America gets to vote for someone to trend, who will get a reward, and a person who gets the lowest points gets a punishment.
