Day 99 Wednesday September 26
The final three weren't roused by their wakeup music, but BB finally shook them out of bed and they sat down to give us feedsters a final farewell and thank us for watching them. They checked the oven clock and said "we got four more minutes, go back to bed" but they were probably kept up, as it'll be a very very busy day for them and the crew. Just before the feeds blinked out at 10am, Tyler said "Hamsterwatch, deuces" letting his fan status slip out once again, in a way that took me by surprise but that I obviously appreciated. And then they were gone. Here's hoping The Powers That Be and feedmasters can grab and edit Tyler and Kaycee dropping their bomb on JC so they can include a little clip of that on tonight's show.

As always on a live show day, I'll update Power Status up top as things happen, and catch up the rest of the page later including finale recap and final obits. But first, a season wrapup.

BB20 was one of the best summer seasons in years, and arguably one of the best ever. We had more than our fair share of unique characters, and plenty of strategic gamers as well. We had a side versus side dynamic, which almost always makes for good feeds, with a couple "floaters" (not a bad word) running interference between them. One side had some big and some peculiar personalities but played a generally lousy game, and the other played brilliant BB but they weren't the most entertaining. We had record TMZ and other outside mentions, a record Goofs Tally, and lengthier than usual tallies in general - scroll down to see.

We had a BB wedding plus three legit showmances, usually a kiss of death for half of us, but one was split up early and the other two were secret. Well, not very secret, but they thought so, and that kept the PDAs and slurpydurp to a minimum. We had no TV/movie screenings/cross-promos, very few prize veto comps, two sets of costumes paired simultaneously (Sam's robot and Kaycee's pinwheel, plus Kaycee's peanut and Rockstar's fitness singlet), some classic and some new comps, too many visitors (remember when the subtitle was No Outside Contact?), and minimal feeds outages but the new fiasco of blocking some endurance comps returned.

Production threw twists at them but the Power and Crap Apps pretty much flopped, though the mid-season Hacker twist did actually change some things, for better or worse. We had multiple blindside nominations and evictions, and more evictees than ever before got the boot based on misconceptions and/or outright lies about them. In short, old school cutthroat BB came back, yet there were relatively few fights or open hostilities. All that adds up to a unique season with literally something for everyone.

All this, but the fanbase was as toxic as ever, with rabid fans and problematic stans screaming and cussing at each other and at the update accounts providing the info. A side versus side dynamic makes for great feeds, but it makes the viewers as divisive as the current political climate, and every bit as hateful and toxic. I guess that's just the nature of the beast anymore, and of course the toxic ones aren't the majority, but they are the most vocal. Shoutout and cheers to Team Fun Feeds, there are still a few of us watching this for entertainment rather than life or death.

Huge thanks to everyone who visited and read the site, and/or got feeds through my links, and/or used my Amazon links, and/or made donations! Your support is truly invaluable, and the only way I can do any of this. But since those are all pathetically diminishing numbers for me, I will need to reassess going forward, but will deal with that when the time comes. Thanks to @UgotBronx for tireless at updates at Hamsterwatch Forum, to @89razorskate20 for alliance charts and so much more, to clamperls for Diary tallies, to Evel Dick and all his co-hosts and guests for another great season of Dick at Nite, to Liquid8d for BB Viewer and so much more, to Dadoo53 for more great toons, to the folk(s) behind the BBAD Orwell account who killed it this season, and to everyone who posted good updates, funnies, podcasts, and especially those who sent me goofs and pinkies!

On to the finale They ran the Part 1 Jet Packs endurance and gave the times: JC came off at 54:43 and Kaycee at 56:43, giving Tyler the win. Part 2 was Mount Evictus where they had to select four correct evictee names from clues and climb a rock wall to place them. If correct, a "laser carved the evictee faces" into Mount Evictus (via special effects). Times were Kaycee 18:55 and JC 19:34, giving Kaycee that win.. but you knew that already. Next up was the jury round table with Dr Will leading the blind and trying to get them to think rationally, and fending off comments about "JC only won one competition" and "some of the best Big Brother players were evil people" like the GOAT he is.

Part 3 was Jury Oddcasts, where Tyler and Kaycee had to select "totally right" or "not quite" for over-produced but clever juror videos, each containing three game trivia statements. They dumped the giant scales and just stuck them behind podiums to answer, which was fine. They answered the same for each question, both correct for the first six and both wrong for the last two (Sam's and Angela's). The tiebreaker was how many seconds did the Jet Pack comp. The answer was 3,413 and Kaycee won Part 3 and the Final HOH with 3,400 - close af! Tyler had 2,002.

The not-nominees gave their pleas, and JC's made it clear he'd learned about Coast 2 Coast this afternoon and he understood, but he told Kaycee she'd probably have a better shot at the win against him, and Tyler told JC he knew he was heartbroken, and "all it takes now is you to finalize it, Kaycee." Kaycee evicted JC, and he finally went through the door he'd been peeking out every week, and he joined the jury in what is still a travesty of BB justice in my opinion. A voter should have more than a few minutes of chaos, emotion, and adrenalin between eviction and voting, and I really hate how they've made third place do that the last several seasons.


The jurors asked their questions, the finalists made their speeches, and the voting keys were placed in the nostalgic keywheel box. Pre-jurors were trotted out, and Julie revealed and asked about the triple showmance statuses. Tyler and Angela said they were a go, Fessy and Haleigh said they were a go, and Swaggy walked over to Bayleigh, knelt, and proposed to her, ring and all. She said yes. Incidentally, I don't think her pregnancy has come out officially yet, but it might as well have as everybody knows by now. Update Bayleigh and Swaggy posted a video saying she did get pregnant, but miscarried.

Julie pulled the keys and Kaycee won with five votes (Sam, Scottie, Fessy, Rockstar, Bayleigh) against Tyler's four (JC, Angela, Brett, Haleigh). The confetti flew and Coast 2 Coast finally exited the habitat, and Tyler won the $25k viewer favorite prize. Julie said the next top vote-getters were Haleigh and Brett. It was an over-packed, over-rushed show with not enough time allotted to revelations and reactions, but that's the way they roll.

Ratings - All Obits edition

VTW = Voted to win

Solid massive ups for no vets, no pre-feeds eviction, and an overall superb cast and season! Unfortunately we didn't get the pre-season sneak peeks of feeds that we hoped might become a regular feature after Celebs, and we shouldn't have to wait til Day 9 for feeds to start. The tech theme was kind of interesting if oddly and inconsistently retro, but then it was forgotten. My usual annual complaints remain: 99 days is too long, and the whole Have-nots thing needs to be retired or at least overhauled. Slop is stupid and only creates lethargic hamsters, especially when they don't even address it on the air shows after the first week, and volunteers for slop or voluntary turn-taking defeats the whole purpose. If they must keep Have-nots, make it be comp repercussions, which would also limit so many of them throwing comps. Better yet, bring back old fashioned food comps! Everyone enjoyed those and it adds some variety to the Sunday comp segment as well as switching up their routine eating habits.

But all in all an excellent season, thanks to The Powers That Be and each and every one of the hamsters for putting themselves out there for our amusement.

Won: $500,000; 1st eviction immunity; 2 weeks Pinwheel; 1 week Peanut; Hacker #2; Hacked self off the block Week 7
HOH 2 - Veto 5 - Noms 3 - HN 2
Won on Day 99
She was one of the least problematic and well-liked by most of her roomies, and her loyalty first to her alliance with Tyler and secondly to Level 6 was solid and unwavering. Like Angela (and usually with Angela), she laid low for the first half and came alive when it was time to win comps. She was even-tempered and she laughed a lot, and while she wasn't the most entertaining, all that pleasantness goes a long way in terms of balance. She didn't complain when Tyler and Angela secluded themselves more and more, nor did she become a pesty third wheel, and while Tyler did most of the Level 6 maneuvering, she was a solid soldier. Their daily uniform of t-shirts, buns and bandanas wasn't even noticed by anyone for what it was. She became a member of a few exclusive hamster clubs including five veto wins in a season, three veto wins in a row, and two costumes in a season with her Rainbow Pinwheel and her Peanut. Even after dozens of renditions of her peanut dance she did it enthusiastically almost every time, and her loud off-key singing made it one of my favorite things.

Won: $75,000; (plus $2,500 on TKO); Power App #2 The Cloud (unused); Hawaii trip; Week 6 vote nullified
HOH 3 - Veto 3 - Noms 2 - HN 3
Runner-up on Day 99
His game was practically elegant as it appeared smooth and seamless, and he was able to keep his fan status, his (unused) power app, and his many partnerships and deals under wraps until the end. Along the way he won comp after comp, was liked by most of them, and fell in love. He was usually quieter than many of them, doing his work mostly in the background, but he had a few outbursts like when he told Level 6 Sam had the Bonus Life power and they weren't catching his hints about it. His F2 with Kaycee was set up on Day 2, long before we joined, but he groomed several alternates including JC, Kaitlyn, and Sam. The latter two proved to be too troublesome to take to the end, but he had his way with each of their HOHs just the same. His total freakout when he saw his hair after Sam straightened it was hilarious, his coo 'n cuddle sessions with Angela were lukewarm (or so they appeared), and his game and manipulation skills, while not flawless, were more masterful than anything we've seen for a few years. All that wasn't enough to get the win, but I think he was genuinely happy for Kaycee to get it instead.

Won: $10,000 3rd place bonus
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 2 - HN 3
13th evicted 1-0 Day 99
VTW Tyler
We knew pre-season he'd be different when his dozens of costumes and Caso Cerrado (click CC for English subtitles) showed up, but then his Minion video surfaced (my 'safe' edit) and that's all she wrote. He was problematic in countless ways, from ice cream scoopers to sleep-cuddling to near-constant singing, and much of his inappropriate behavior landed him on TMZ and other non-BB outlets. But his roomies didn't seem to mind as much as many out here did, and along with all that he was often funny and surprisingly caring, checking up on people when they were feeling down. Game-wise, he was busier than most, with his manic, frantic, angry-whisper gametalk. It was often hard to follow but it was effective, as he avoided the nomination chair until the very end. He wasn't as plugged in as he thought he was (not to mention his faulty 'mastermind' edit), but he was still instrumental in a lot of moves and decisions. His crush on Tyler was cute, but his love/hate affair with Bob, as he called the BB announcements, was hilarious and a highlight of many late nights, and especially the last night of feeds.

Won: $7,000 4th place bonus
HOH 3 - Veto 2 - Noms 2 - HN 1
8th juror/12th evicted 1-0 Day 93
VTW Tyler
She was in the 'Who?' category for weeks, and many referred to her as The Furniture because she was so barely there. Then she turned on her bestie Rachel and followed that up with an HOH reign that booted Bayleigh. Either or both of those events would normally bring fireworks, especially as Angela's game moves often seemed highly personal, but while she didn't pull any punches with her speeches, she didn't follow up with face-to-face confrontations. She also won a late HOH and two vetos, giving her an excellent comp record. She fell for Tyler and vice versa, but fortunately for our ears, they weren't too smacky or slurpy. (They didn't seem very passionate either, but that's their business.) She wasn't a big conversationalist, often retelling her gymnastics and pole-vaulting background, her keen sense of smell, and the need to do her taxes, and she also said some things she shouldn't have. She was often horizontal, with or without Tyler, and she was highly photogenic, not surprisingly since she's a professional model. She was allied well, earned her way to Final Four, and she gave some harsh farewell messages, but entertaining feeds, not so much.

Won: $5,000 5th place bonus; 2 weeks Robot; Power App #1 Bonus Life
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 4 - HN 3
7th juror/11th evicted 2-0 Day 91
VTW Kaycee
One of the most unique hamsters ever, she got a lot of criticism for 'not playing the game' and a lot of speculation as to whether she was crazy like a fox or just plain crazy. A recruit who didn't do much homework, she didn't know what she was getting into and she let Tyler lull her into staying largely uninvolved in the game. She trusted him implicitly until he voted her out, but she'd said that would be okay if it would help him get the win. She was a great robot (and we got to share Sambot's point of view), and while she didn't use that to her best social advantage, she did BB-marry JC while she was still on wheels. She was often first up in the morning and last to bed at night, and she kept herself busy by making bird feeders, wind chimes, and more with found materials and bits of decor. She transformed Tyler, Kaycee, Brett with hair makeovers, and she won the first power app (but didn't use it) plus a brutal wall endurance comp, and by the end she went a little ways around the bend. She was a mostly fun hamster and I'm glad she was on our feeds.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; 24 hours InstaGranny
HOH 0 - Veto 1 - Noms 4 - HN 2
6th juror/12th evicted 3-0 Day 86
VTW Tyler
He and Winston were inseparable bros at first, sometimes offensive, often comical and often obnoxious, but he survived Winstonbro's early eviction and went far, mostly due to being in the strong Level 6 alliance. He was a good spy for them, first setting up to be a perceived outcast and then as a double agent, and he did well infiltrating the other side. But he didn't pull his weight comps-wise and when he started trying to work Tyler against Kaycee and Angela, they decreed he had to go. He gave three unexpected and extremely memorable nominee speeches but when he was the double eviction blindside renom and evictee, he went quietly. Along the way he gave us ANALLICE, broke the front door with a prank gone wrong, started an oven fire, and created an alter ego named River Dan when he found Angela's stunt hair. He dominated the grill for its one-night-only appearance (disappointing BBQ Smackdown fans), and he provided far more than his share of comedy lines and overall fun feeds.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; Crap App #3 Read It; Hacker #1
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 4 - HN 2
5th juror/11th evicted 4-0 Day 86
VTW Tyler
She was a charter member of the doomed FOUTTE alliance and later the Hive, and she was close to figuring things out with both Rockstar and Bayleigh, but she inexplicably seemed to forget what was going on each week and started over from scratch, leading to repeated blindsides. But she survived the longest of her teamies and did well considering the opposition she was up against. She read Hamlet with a peculiar accent, and she featured in several crush triangles, getting cozy with Brett, Scottie, and Fessy. She settled on Fessy even though they had a rocky start, magnified by a sippy game of Would You Rather that he didn't like. Their relationship continued being rocky, alternating makeouts with bickering, and she bashed him after he left but that may have been for game purposes, as she'd continuously denied being showmancy with him. Her comp performance was inconsistent, sometimes great and sometimes awful, and she wasn't able to win when she had to. She featured in several tally items, and her house meeting to confess being the first Hacker set off the biggest fireworks of the season.

Won: $5,000; 1st eviction immunity; Greece trip; Hacked off the block 6th week; 1 week revival
HOH 1 - Veto 1 - Noms 4 - HN 4
3rd juror/8th evicted 6-0 Day 65 - Revived Day 72 - 4th juror/10th evicted 5-0 Day 79
VTW Kaycee
He came in a fan but partnered up with only Steve and was on his own Day 15. Then he cast a hinky vote and was blamed for all the stray votes going forward. But he lasted quite awhile despite all that, and he played something of a 'floater' game (floating side to side) which contributed to his first eviction. He fell for Haleigh and while he didn't do or say anything out of order with her, that was the other (bigger?) reason Fessy put him up - never mind that Level 6/5/4 had engineered it that way. But it was fun to watch Scottie fall head-over-heels, and touching when he finally admitted he had feelings for her that he didn't know how to process. His revival week didn't go any better and he went right out again (with a Hilton Head bang), but disastrous game aside, he was often a star for Team Fun Feeds, contributing more than his share of Lines of the Day and constantly doing unexpected and very random things. Last but very far from least, he broke up the Brett/Winston bromance on his HOH.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; Crap App #1 Hamazon
HOH 1 - Veto 2 - Noms 1 - HN 3
3rd juror/9th evicted 4-1 Day 72
VTW Kaycee
He provided a lot of comedy, but most of it was unintentional. He was vocal about hoping this would open doors for followers, advertising offers, and other shows, and it might. But he was unable to figure out how this show worked, even after being blindsided week after week. He got stuck on the Week 2 Brett vs Winston vote and held onto that all season, and even when Haleigh told him there were two sides playing, he promptly forgot and fell right into the same traps, as did she. He put up his ally Scottie on his HOH and said it was the 'biggest move in BB history' but oops, not so much. He liked Angela at first, then Kaitlyn and Haleigh, but he finally gave his rose to Haleigh. She balked a little at first but they finally kissed and from there it was alternating bickering and slurpydurp when they were together. Fessy slept a lot, ate a lot, broke the HOH sink, and made a lot of messes that ticked off some of his roomies, but he won some comps and doesn't seem like a bad guy overall, just a little clueless in some areas.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; 1 week Food and Fitness program
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 3 - HN 1
2nd juror/7th evicted 5-1 Day 58
VTW Kaycee
She filled the requisite 'weirdo' casting slot but as with many hamster weirdos before her, she was pretty 'normal' despite her alternative appearance. She had issues early on with Angela and Brett in particular, and she held on to those issues so tightly they got in the way of her logic. She got continually hung up on her theories of what was going on but unfortunately for her, those theories were mostly wrong. She and Haleigh did see Tyler as a game threat fairly early, but they weren't able to do much about it until Haleigh's HOH week, but they didn't plan around enough Hacker scenarios and Rockstar went out on her one-time bestie's HOH. Her first nomination was messy but she handled her second well, partly due to Jessie's Food & Fitness program which she also handled pretty well. She griped a lot, with odd and ever-changing accents, and while she handled most things well at first, she was a good sport about them eventually, even Brett's horrible speech accusation 'on [the eve of] her daughter's birthday.'

Won: Power App #3 Identity Theft (unused)
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 1
1st juror/6th evicted 6-1 Day 51
VTW Kaycee
She was very watchable and gifable, with the best facial expressions no matter what, including multiple shockfaces. She was isolated with Swaggy the first couple weeks even though he was busy running around, but rather than becoming a gloomy showmance widow, she came out swinging when he left and embedded herself well all around - a little too well, as that moved her quickly up the target ranks to the tippy top. She said some controversial things and had the first in-house pregnancy. She won a power that went unused, partly because she blabbed she had it, and that was the real reason she went out when she did. She did a slow simmer when she went on the block as blindside renom, but Hurricane Bayleigh made landfall two days later, as a Category 5, in a spectacular outburst of anger and frustration that culminated in 'spewing blood' after she bit herself. The kicker? Her anger at Tyler was mostly due to an inaccurate retell. The 29th consecutive North American hamster to enter the habitat first and not win their season.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; Crap App #2 Yell!
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 1
5th evicted 5-4 Day 44
Her blindside stung more than some because much of it was due to a pack of lies plus betrayal by her BB bestie Angela but hey, welcome to Big Brother. And she did buy some of it herself by losing her mind on the block, and that was after she agreed to go on it. She had nip slips and towel flashes almost daily, for those interested. She said she's a performer almost daily too, sometimes multiple times a day, and she did come alive when she was acting out skits, dancing, or singing ('please stop singing') but the rest of the time she seemed guarded and I don't feel we got to know who she really is at all. Her rough 'n tumble friendship with JC was fun, especially when they'd break serious convos for their quick-and-done J's Party dance. Her pal Jackie didn't fill her in enough about the rotten meat and rancid potatoes of this game, but she held her own pretty well until she didn't. Her birthday was memorable, thanks to Kaitlyn using the occasion to yell at Brett.

Won: Bonus Life 'chance' (failed)
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 1
4th evicted 9-1 Day 37
It's safe to say we knew more of her backstory than any hamster ever, since she seemed to bring it into every convo. She talked a very lot, and she squeaked, whimpered, babytalked, croaked, and cried a lot too, plus she canoodled with three guys (Tyler, Brett, Fessy). She caused a lot of chaos which is good, but she was often exhausting about it. New age interests are fine, some clairvoyance is trippy and fun, but her 'intuition' was nearly always wrong. It's probably just as well she failed the Bonus Life puzzle since she'd gotten to the point of getting 'hits' from shampoo labels. It was Tyler's doing, but she still gets the credit in the books for backdooring Swaggy and breaking up a showmance in the second week: something most seasons haven't been able to manage til the end, if at all.

Won: Nothing
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 2 - HN 1
3rd evicted 6-5 Day 30
He too came in saying all the right things: he wasn't here to get a girlfriend or Twitter followers, and I had him pegged as either a dark horse who'd go far, or a too-hard-too-soon kind of guy. Turned out he was the latter, probably because he just discovered BB last summer and binged several seasons since without realizing there's a lot more to it than the show edits let on. He spent most of his time playing Jenga and broing around with Brett, and the two of them provided a lot of unintentional comedy in the form of buffoonery. He made manic facial expressions while going on angry whisper rants, he threatened speech call-outs but didn't follow through, and for all his jock/winner self-hype, he failed every comp.

Won: 1st eviction immunity
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 0
2nd evicted 8-4 Day 23
Pre-season he said all the right things (albeit in his own unique, third person way), but he started off way too strong and way too Swaggy for his own good. He gave us great shockface when Steve was evicted but it didn't sink in that he wasn't fully plugged in, so he gave us another when he went up as backdoor renom. To his credit, he campaigned his brains out to stay rather than lay down to die, but it didn't help. His pre-show QAs said he was wary of showmancing but he fell for Bayleigh anyway, and together they were one of the cuter 'mances to watch - it helped that they didn't slurpydurp too much. Swaggy C was a good character for TV, but Chris was a good hamster and will be missed.

Won: Nothing
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 0
1st evicted 7-6 Day 16
The Summer of Steve™ ran just a couple weeks and his job lie(s) didn't help him any. He might have been better off if he'd been open about his undercover past and teaching present as both would have let him share more stories, or if he'd gotten in with Kaitlyn and Rockstar via his wife's new age interests and books. He and Scottie buddied up but otherwise he was odd dad out. He didn't keep up so believed he was safe, and he didn't really campaign to stay. It might not have helped if he had because all the scurrying was elsewhere, but it wouldn't have hurt. He didn't get his required nightly baths but he learned to clean his ears, and early risers in particular will miss him.
